EMC news – Parking spots could be scarce at the Mlacak Centre with the construction of the west district library.

Library design includes a roof-top terrace From PARKING, page 1

The city is working out a deal with the Ottawa public school board to make use of parking spots at Earl of March Secondary School, located next to the Mlacak Centre. Construction of the twofloor, 1,200-square-metre addition will bring the library’s total space to 2,229 square metres, turning it into a district library instead of a local branch, meaning more reference materials will be available. Work on the project is expected to start in the spring of 2013 and finish in 2014. Emmanuelle van Rutten, an architect with Moriyama and Teshima Architects, the company which designed the building, said she wants to turn the branch into more of a meeting and multi-use space as opposed to a traditional

library. The design includes a rooftop terrace and a green roof on the new section of the building, landscaping around the building, with more windows and skylights. The new portion of the roof will be topped with light-coloured stones and material to reflect light and make the building more energy-efficient. The facade of the building will built using natural materials: wood and grey stone. The entranceway will be made more prominent and inviting through the use of a skylight in the entrance overhang, van Rutten said. Plans for the west district library can be viewed online at under the “Branch improvements” section under “About OPL.” With files from Laura Mueller

The policies encourage good stewardship, require additional oversight or risk reduction measures where necessary and prohibit certain activities from being established in the future. Funding is also available until Dec. 1, to help property owners address activities on their property that may be subject to these policies once approved. People can view the proposed plan online at www. or at the conservation authority offices: Mississippi Valley Conservation – 4175 Highway 511, Lanark; Rideau Valley Conservation Authority – 3889 Rideau Valley Dr., Manotick.

Mitchell planning to watch fireworks in Kanata From MITCHELL, page 1

One lucky person will win an autographed guitar prior to Mitchell’s set. Wicked Guitar is raffling off an instrument signed by Mitchell, with all proceeds going to the Kanata Haven Youth Centre. FIREWORKS

Mitchell said he’s fortunate to be able to play his music. “My job is just a wonderful thing to do,” he said. “I feel so lucky.” Music is a part of people’s environment, he said, it’s always there in the background. “When you think back to life’s moments you hear a piece of music along with it,” he said. “The fact that I was a small piece of fabric in their life experience is completely

humbling to me.” Mitchell has a busy day prior to the Kanata event: he’s flying into Winnipeg, driving six hours north, playing a festival, then turning around and heading right back to Ottawa. Although he has a busy two days, he said he plans to stick around for the fireworks show. “I love being around the environment where I’m playing,” he said. “It should be good.” Mitchell released his most recent album, Ain’t Life Amazing, in 2007 and continues to tour and perform across the country. According to his website, Mitchell will be back in Ottawa on Aug. 11 for the Navan Fair. Currently the afternoon host for radio station Q107 in Toronto, Mitchell first hit the Canadian music scene in the 1970s as part of the band Max Webster.

A concept sketch shows the proposed plans for Goward Park, located in the northern part of Morgan’s Grant. It would include a path and a natural play area.

City proposes natural park area for Goward Path to connect Second Line and hydro corridor Jessica Cunha

EMC news – The city is proposing Goward Park become a natural recreation and play area. City planner Tara Smith showed residents a concept sketch of proposed ideas for the park at the Kanata North ward council meeting on June 18. “It’s a challenging park,” she said, referring to the flooding that takes place every spring and the amount of poison ivy that can be found in the wooded area. Goward Park, located in the northern part of Morgan’s Grant, is a wooded tract of land

between Second Line Road, the hydro corridor and Goward Drive. Smith proposed a pathway to connect Second Line Road to the hydro corridor, with two wooden bridges to cross areas with water. The path would be stonedust until it could be paved, she said, adding it would range from 1.2 to 1.8 metres across. One resident at the meeting had concerns with how close the path would be to his backyard. “The buffer between the path and backyards is not enough,” he said, adding there isn’t any greenery in that area for privacy. Smith said there is a 15-

metre buffer between the path and the backyards of houses on Goward Drive. Smith also proposed a “natural play area” with log-like structures, fake climbing rocks and a seating area. “It blends with the natural forest area,” she said, adding there would be no bright colours. In terms of park development, “This is minimal disturbance,” Smith said. One resident raised the concern that there was no garbage bin included in the park proposal. Smith said she would bring the idea to the table and see if it’s possible to have one included. If the plan is approved it could move ahead as quickly as this year, Smith said. Residents are asked to submit their comments to tara. or call 613580-2424 ext. 15825.

Injured cyclist kicks off fundraiser to build group home Blair Edwards

It’s been a long road to recovery for Rob Wein since he was injured in a hit-andrun while cycling on March Road in July 2009. The Richmond man was one of five cyclists struck by a minivan driven by Sommit Luangpakham, who was later convicted of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and leaving the scene of an accident. Wein suffered a serious abdominal injury, a broken rib, a collapsed lung and a severe brain injury; doctors gave him a 50 per cent chance of survival. Wein beat the odds and over the past three years has taught himself the simple

tasks he once took for granted: swallowing food, eating, standing, walking and talking. But Wein isn’t satisfied with just his own recovery. He wants to speak up for other individuals in Ottawa with brain injuries. Last week, Wein helped kick off a fundraising campaign to build a group home for people with acquired brain injuries in Katimavik. Wein is the honourary spokesperson for Pathways to Independence Ottawa’s One Brick at a Time campaign, which is seeking to raise $350,000 to build a sixbedroom home on a piece of land on Bachman Terrace, in Katimavik. “I am trying to help people overcome their challenges,”

said Wein. “Pathways needs a voice. People can see me and understand I have a disability.” Many people with acquired brain injuries are nervous and don’t speak well in front of groups of people, Wein said. “I’m not afraid to say what I say,” he said. “I adapt and overcome.” Wein has been active in the community this year, delivering speeches at Ottawa-area schools and hospitals to discuss issues such as the importance of bicycle safety. His most recent presentation was at an elementary school in Ottawa. “It was very well received,” said Wein during a speech at the group home campaign kick-off at the Michael Gennis Gallery in Westboro on Thursday, June 21. Wein first heard about Pathways to Independence while participating in a rehabilitiation program at the Robin Easey Center, and has been a member of the organization’s day program for the past two years. “Rob has come a long way from his accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury,” said Sandy Jenkyns, a manager of support services with Pathways. “The life-

Wein helped kick off the fundraiser at an art gallery in Westboro on Thursday, June 21. long passion, the determination to push himself every day, continues to motivate him with a new mission in his life. Rob is the definition of taking a negative and turning it into a positive.” GROUP HOME

The new group home for people with acquired brain injuries is badly needed in the community, said Jenkyns. Some individuals who suffer brain injuries lose basic living skills, she said, Jenkyns joined the Pathways board in 2001, a few years after husband suffered a brain injury in 1997. Following her husband’s injury, Jenkyns said she realized the Ottawa area didn’t provide enough support for people with brain injuries. Since she joined the organization, Jenkyns has helped run the Pathways Golf Classic, held every September at the Canadian Golf and Country Club. This year’s tournament will be held on Sept. 13.

Pathways president Jack Arthur said the Belleville, Ont., based organization can only afford to build or buy one group home every five years. “The needs of the community are growing exponentially,” he said. “But the number of slots in system support is not growing. “We have to do more with less.” Acquired brain injuries are caused by a variety of reasons, such as a stroke, a brain aneurysm or accidents. The residents of the proposed group home in Katimavik will come from a residence in Osgoode, which doesn’t suit the needs of those living there, said Jenkyns. The organization chose

the Katimavik location because it’s near recreational and medical facilities and has access to good public transportation, Jenkyns said. The Ottawa organization runs a residence for people with acquired brain injuries, which provides 24-hour support and respite service for caregivers. It also provides assisted living support for individuals with acquired brain injuries living in their own apartments, home or long-term care facility. The One Brick at a Time campaign has three corporate sponsorship options: a $5,000 platinum sponsorship, a $3,000 gold sponsorship and a $1,500 silver sponsorship, with contributions entitling the sponsors to have their names inscribed in the Recognition Brick Wall of the new group home. For more information, visit “We’ve had fantastic community support,” said Jenkyns. “The community has been so generous.”

Residents concerned with speeding on Knudson Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Residents concerned with the speeding on Knudson Drive in Kanata Lakes attended a meeting on June 18. The collector road has a posted speed limit of 40 kilometres an hour but motorists have been clocked going as fast as 113 km/h, said KerryLynn Mohr, a traffic assess-

ment specialist with the city. The average speed on the road is 60 km/h. She said the city has implemented a “Slow Down” program in the area, passing out pamphlets to residents who live in the area and tracking motorists’ speeds. “We’re doing a leaflet drop in the area to educate about the need to slow down,” Mohr said. Kanata North Coun. Mari-

anne Wilkinson said the bulk of motorists speeding on that road are residents who live on Knudson or on one of the local streets directly off the collector. “The majority of speeders are from the community,” she said, adding a number of students use that road to walk to and from school. The city is trying “to get people in the community to wake up and slow down,”

EMC news – A joint operation between the Ontario Provincial Police and the Ottawa Police Service saw 50 speeders nabbed on Wednesday, June 20. The two police forces targeted vehicles on the Highway 417 in the construction zone


Residents at the meeting wanted to know what the city was proposing to do about the speeding. At this time, the city is working on collecting the

Speeding fines are doubled when workers are in the construction zone. The speed on that stretch of the Queensway has been reduced to 80 kilometres an hour, down from 100 kilome-

Help pump up Canada’s athletes this July 1


here’s no doubt the Hudson’s Bay Company is hoping Canadians are well aware of the Olympics, and will don Team Canada’s new 2012 Olympic Games gear come July 1. But all commercial interests aside, Canada Day is a prime date to start gearing up for the upcoming Games. Many of our athletes will likely refrain from an all-day,

beer and barbecue celebration; most will spend at least a portion of the day training for one of the biggest competitions of their lives, less than a month away. We love Canada, and you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t look forward to the day where we celebrate all things Canadian. And that includes our athletes on the road to London.

Canada Day is the perfect time to find your local athletes to cheer on at the Olympics. We can let our pride and excitement carry us through to the July 27 opening ceremonies. The Olympic Games are almost as patriotic as July 1 itself, with our athletes proudly wearing the country’s colours on an international stage.

When they march into the stadium for the opening ceremonies, there’s an excitement that comes alive that even a packed nation’s capital and fireworks can’t always reach. We’re proud to be Canadian when among an international crowd, and it’s a great thing to be able to support so many athletes abroad. When we can quantify being the best in the world at

something, it helps pump up some national pride. The celebration is a great time to not only reflect on the opportunities that we are given as Canadians, but to engage with our Olympic teams and start thinking ahead. So this Canada Day, think about the athletes who are training to represent us and who will wear the maple leaf in a few short weeks.

We’ve got our own website at www.yourottawa that identifies Ontario and Ottawa-based Olympians that we’re excited to follow, and with Canada Day coming, we’re even more amped to see them achieve their dreams. Let’s get behind them and keep our patriotic spirits up as we count down the days until the London 2012 Olympic Games.


What’s a Canadian? What a question CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


s usual, Canada Day will be a microcosm of our country. People will head off to the lakes to find some peace and quiet, or they may hop onto some noisy device when they get there, disturbing other people’s peace and quiet. People will congregate with thousands of other people in downtown Ottawa. They will solemnly celebrate our country’s 145 years or they will party like crazy and leave a mess. If they are a bit more scholarly, they might visit a museum to learn more about their country (amazingly, in this time of cutbacks, the museums are open). Or, being Canadians, they may ignore the whole thing and drive into the United States to do some shopping. It’s what makes this country great, the fact that there is no one way to do things, even on our national holiday. Not that this hasn’t been said before. In fact, it’s hard to find anything to say about Canada that hasn’t been said before on Canada Day by some Canadian. Most of it has been pretty admiring. Canada Day gives us the opportunity to admire ourselves and there is much to admire, not all of it scenic. One of the things we admire is that fact that we don’t tend to be a self-admiring nation. Canadians are their own worst critics, and whenever someone in a foreign country writes something critical about Canada he will find many Canadians eager to agree with him. Obviously, this isn’t all to the good. Just as it is not ideal to be chest-thumping patriots, unwilling to recognize any national faults, it’s not ideal either to be so envious of other countries that we can’t see the virtues in our own.

You know the bit about how Canadians are boring (especially in Ottawa). Many Canadians seem all too willing to buy into that. Yet there’s something to be said for a little boredom, if it means safe streets, no civil war, no mass starvation. Having said all that, what’s new to say about this Canada Day? Well, we have economic woes, which we’ve had before. In the capital, we face public service cutbacks, which we’ve seen before too. It’s hotter than usual, but then, it’s been hotter than usual before and we all always say we’ve never seen it this hot. Sometimes it’s cooler than usual and we say we haven’t seen it this cool. And there is more concern that climate change threatens the lakes, forests and oceans that define us. That concern doesn’t seem to have penetrated the political level. But we have lived with that for a while too. Same old, same old. One thing that feels different is that Canada Day seems less a time for national introspection than it used to be. In years gone by it was common for Canada Day to inspire a wave of earnest commentary seeking to define Canada or, maybe worse, seeking to inspire others to define Canada. Defining Canada was a big national industry for a time. If you had a nickel for every time you saw the words “whither Canada,” you could balance the federal budget. Another opportunity wasted. For a while there we were so busy defining ourselves that we could barely look at the fireworks but, fortunately, those days seem to have passed. We may be self-critical at times but we are also self-confident. We know that we have great innovators, great artists. We have great books and great music and we know that now. Not that we necessarily reward those who produce them. That comes next, perhaps. We don’t worry any more that our kids won’t want to be Canadians. They have shown us that they do. The tricky part now is to create an economy and a social climate that will make them glad they stayed. That thought wasn’t meant to spoil the party.

Ash trees, ash borers pile up at Trail Road

Nevil Hunt


The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources has advice for anyone dealing with ash borer infestations and the city appears to have disregarded those instructions. The ministry’s website says “trees dead or dying from emerald ash borer should be cut and burned, chipped.” Van Ingen said it was a terrible idea to move the trees from where they were felled, as any movement will certainly spread the bugs further afield. He said south Nepean

and nearby parts of the city are almost certainly going to see more borers because of the ash piling up at Trail Road. If the trees had to be moved from where they were cut down, he wants to know why the city didn’t kill the borers as soon as they arrived at Trail Road. He said the borers don’t dig deep into trees, and are only found in the layer just below the bark called the cambium. Removing the bark and the affected cambium layer for burning could have killed the borers, as could burning of the complete trees. Alternately, van Ingen said trees could have been fumigated or contained on arrival at the Trail Road “They’ve just done nothing,” he said.

The pile of ash trees at the Trail Road landfill covers an area about the size of a football field. And every day it gets taller and wider. The trees are being cut down on city property across Ottawa in an attempt to prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer, which kills ash trees. One Ottawa man is concerned that the pile of dead trees is going to become the epicentre of a borer infestation, and the city will be responsbile for the disaster. “This is just the tip of the iceberg,” said Bert van Ingen, who has watched the pile get bigger and bigger as more ash is cut down. “One in four trees in eastern Ontario is ash.” The pile at Trail Road began about two years ago and is now at least 80 metres long and five metres tall in places. Van Ingen said he’s worked in the tree management field and that even though the ash trees at Trail Road have been cut down, the borers in the trees are still alive. June is a peak period for the flying form of the borers to emerge from the trees and disperse to surrounding areas. “They’ve been coming out for the last three weeks,” he said of the flying borers. At risk are ash trees, which make up an estimated 25 per cent of Ottawa’s urban and rural forests. City statistics show 18,000 hectares of rural forest cover – on both public and private land – is made up of ash. In total, there are 75,000 ash trees on streets and in cityowned parks. Since the emerald ash borer was first found in Ottawa in 2008, the number of ash trees has been reduced by the bugs and by cutting to prevent its spread.

Carpenter John Howarth stands beside the growing pile of downed ash trees at the Trail Road landfill. The city is piling up trees infested with emerald ash borers that could spread to nearby ash trees.


Insects could spread to local trees



Heather Hamilton says different levels of government “have fumbled their way through” the response to the ash borer problem. Hamilton is the chairwoman of the city’s forests and greenspace advisory committee, which provides advice to city councillors. “There has been big expansion of emerald ash borer and cutting this year,” she said. “The trees have been going to Trail (Road) for a couple of years but not in these quantities (in previous years). Hamilton said the forests and greenspace advisory committee “had some qualms” about storing the cut trees to Trail Road. “We were concerned that it would help to spread the problem.” A city map dated April 2012 shows a few spots around Trail Road where ash borers are located. Hamilton said there’s no way to know if the city’s pile of cut ash is the source of the local hotspots, “but it’s a distinct possibility.” As the pile grows, the number of bugs likely grows too, making their spread more likely.

The city is currently seeking proposals from private contractors to deal with the Trail Road ash pile. Simply turning the wood into chips is one possibility, but that would waste the interior of each tree, which is unaffected by the borers. Van Ingen placed the value of the current ash pile at roughly $7.5 million if it was cut into planks, but time is of the essence if the spread of the borers is to be contained. The city’s tree staff was not immediately available to provide details of any proposals received so far from local businesses.

Potential to preserve ash trees


Managing your electricity bill

Your Community Newspaper

Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Residents can help the city keep track of the emerald ash borer issue. People can play a part in keeping the population of destructive beetles to a minimum, said Nancy Young, with the city’s forestry services branch, during the Kanata North ward council meeting on June 18. “There is the potential to preserve large or significant trees that aren’t infested,” she said. The city is working to inject trees with TreeAzin to keep the beetle at bay. Those to be injected this year are already tagged, she said, adding residents can choose to pay to have trees on city property treated. “They are saving quite a few but they can’t save them all,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. If the tree is on private property, it’s up to the homeowner to treat or remove the tree. Around one quarter of the tree cover in Ottawa is made up of ash trees. The emerald ash borer was first found in the city’s east end and can now be found in communities across Ottawa. Young said Kanata’s ash trees haven’t been hit too hard when compared to other areas of the city.

Electricity consumers across Ontario are now billed using time of use rates. Under this new pricing structure, the price of electricity varies depending on when it is used. “Customers can choose to make small changes to conserve energy or shift some of their consumption to lower price periods to save,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa Holding Inc. Time of use rates align the price customers pay for electricity with real market prices, which change throughout the day based on supply and demand.

A beary good picnic

Pamela Stewart of Kanata and twin girls Hailey and Alexandra Blommesteign, both 20 months, relax on the grass at the 29th annual CHEO Teddy Bears’ Picnic held at Rideau Hall on June 23.

Electricity rates are lowest, or off-peak, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., on weekends and on statutory holidays. In the summer, electricity rates are highest from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The on-peak periods are during the hottest part of the afternoon when air conditioners run the most.



“These rates give us all a financial incentive to reduce our electricity use, especially during peak periods,” said Conrad.


According to the city’s website, the emerald ash borer has an average life span of one year, but can last for up to two years. The larvae feed under the bark of ash trees, disrupting the circulation of water and nutrients, eventually killing the tree. The top branches of ash trees are normally the first to die. Once the beetle matures, it chews its way out of the tree. Mature emerald ash borers have wings. Infested trees usually die within one to three years.


An easy way to trim peak demand is to set the timer on your dishwasher so it runs after 7 p.m. Washing and drying a load of laundry during offpeak periods costs about 52 cents, while the same consumption during peak periods would cost 94 cents.


Hydro Ottawa’s online portal, MyHydroLink, allows customers to learn about their electricity consumption. This secure site shows customers a detailed breakdown of their electricity consumption, by the day, month or billing period.

MyHydroLink customers can also view their account balance, bill payment history and even register for E-Billing. To set up your account, visit

“MyHydroLink truly provides our customers with a wealth of information,” said Conrad. “And now, this information is also available straight from your smartphone with our new mobile website at We’re trying to make it easier for our customers to manage their electricity use.”

Young said the city has taken a number of steps to help lessen the destruction of ash trees, including: • The regulation of wood movement and disposal. • Infested trees are being removed. • Selected trees are being injected. • New trees are being planted. • Educating the public. Young said there are also a number of steps residents can take to help: • Educate your community. • Call 311 to report the presence of the emerald ash borer in city trees. • Consider injecting ash trees on private property. There are online calculates to help determine the cost of removal versus injection. • Plant new tree species. For more information, visit the city website at www.ottawa. ca.

Architects unveil Richcraft skatepark design Blair Edwards

EMC news – Skaters took their first look at the proposed design for a skateboard park at the Richcraft Recreation Complex last week. More than a dozen skaters filled a meeting room at the

Mlacak Centre on Wednesday, June 20, to view the design. The proposed park would include an urban street look with stairs, hand rails, ramps and an area with a pool bowl. “We’re going with a balanced approach,” said Bill Gurney, landscape architect

with Newline Skateparks, the company building the Richcraft recreation complex’s skateboard park. The city will spend $450,000 to build the 929square-metre park, which will finish construction in 2013, shortly before the recreation complex opens.

Several of the skaters who attended the meeting asked if the company would consider scrapping the pool bowl, and go with a more traditional street design, with additional stairs and ramps. “To me it’s a redundant piece,” said Aaron Cayer, a member of the Ottawa Skate-

board Association. Nepean’s Legacy Park has a skateboard park with a pool bowl and it isn’t used very much by the skaters, he said. “I think we’re inviting a lot of grafitti, like we have at Legacy,” he said. But a pool-style bowl was one of the requested items on a survey put out by Newline Skateparks this spring, said Gurney. “(The) idea to delete is probably more than anything one person’s opinion or a select group,” he said. “The pool bowl will remain in the design.” The Richcraft skate park will have a superior design in terms of design and construc-

tion, he added. “It will be more modern,” Gurney said. “It will be newer and fresher.” Gurney said the park has a unique design with four circular nodes connected to a centerpiece pad, which could feature public art. The design, which resembles a Celtic cross, calls for a pool-style bowl, with a 1.5-metre shallow end and a two-metre deep end, a section which resembles a bent coin and two shaded staging areas where skaters can relax and socialize. Gurney said the proposed outlay of the park was inspired by the design of a skateboard, with wheels, axels and nuts.

Father’s back-breaking work was for family


arly in the morning, this time of year, I could hear Father stirring downstairs. He would try to be quiet so as not to rouse the rest of the house, but as soon as he lit the cook stove, scraping the lids to put in the kindling, I would waken. And then I would hear Mother in the kitchen getting breakfast ready. The sun would be just rising when Father would head to the barns for the chores, returning to the house to down his breakfast and head out again for the long day ahead in the fields. Likely the binder or the hay mower would already be in a far-off part of the farm, left there from the day before. Our fields were long and narrow in the Northcote area and it seemed to me, when I was so young, that when Father went beyond the west hill, he was in another part of the country. He loved his land. Just like he loved every animal in the barns and fields. Gram-

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories pa, when he came to visit from Ottawa, would say, “Albert is a true farmer.” On week days, Mother would pack a lunch for him to take to the back fields. But on Saturdays, I would be allowed to take a large basket, packed with sandwiches, a honey pail of tea with shards of ice in it, slab cake, and a peeled cucumber and a tomato. It was quite a feast, I thought back then. Father and I would share the lunch together. But during the days when we were at school, I knew without Mother telling me, that Father would be gone for most of the day with the binder, far back into the fields in the farthest reaches of our farm. My three brothers would be expected to hurry home

We Know What Works

from school this time of year, because they would be responsible for the evening chores. There was milking to be done, the barns to be cleaned out and made ready for the night, the calves and pigs to be fed and fresh straw put in the stalls. My sister Audrey and I were expected to wash out the milk pails and the cream separator, put fresh cheese cloth under the lids of the milk cans, making sure everything was secure. Mother lived in constant dread that somehow a mouse would get into the milk can during the night, which Father said was an impossibility since the lids fit so tightly. But she wasn’t taking any chances, thus the cheesecloth was extra protection. We would have our supper without Father these

nights. He would still be working in the fields. It didn’t seem right somehow, that he wasn’t sitting at the head of the table. But his plate would be there, just as if he could be expected any minute to come in the back door. My sister Audrey would have to say grace, which was a much shorter version than that given by Father. Although he wasn’t one to engage in idle chatter at meal time, nonetheless it seemed strange that he wasn’t part of our supper meal. Long after we had eaten, and cleaned up the kitchen and the light of the day would have started to fade, I would go to the window and watch for Father. I would first see just a speck and then I would see him coming over the west hill, walking behind the team, with the whippletree dragging behind them. I would watch his figure grow larger and I would feel the utmost relief that he would soon be home, safe and sound. “He’s home,” I would yell.

Everett would get up and go out to the barn yard and take the team from Father, feed them oats, and let them drink from the watering trough and then take them into the barn for the night. Father would come into the kitchen, covered with dirt and chaff, looking like he had rolled in a dust bin. He would go to the bench at the back door where Mother would have put out a fresh basin of warm water. I would watch him splash the water over his face and rub it up his arms, and see the water turn black. He would reach up to the huck towel and dry himself off and it would look like he didn’t have another ounce of strength in his body. Mother would put a steaming supper before him and I never knew whether I should sit at the table with him so that he wouldn’t be eating alone, or to leave him in peace. It never mattered how ample the meal was, it couldn’t erase the bone-tiredness from Father’s body. I used to think a long day in the fields made him look much older than he

really was. At any other time of the year, Father would spend some time after supper reading the paper, with his feet resting on the oven door. But when he had been in back fields from daylight to dusk, it was all he could do to muster enough strength to plod to the bedroom, undress and fall into bed. I knew without fail, the next morning there would be a repeat of what had happened the day before and would happen many days hence. Although I didn’t understand completely what the Depression really meant, I knew for us to survive it, Father would have to continue the back-breaking work of tilling the land and harvesting the crops, with machinery that had seen better days. And in my prayers at night, I would offer up a special prayer for Father, that he would have the strength to do what had to be done to keep the farm going and to keep the Depression from closing in around us.

Crime rate down: police City of Ottawa

The number of crimes against people, homicides and motor vehicle fatalities decreased in 2011, according to a report recently presented to the Ottawa Police Services Board. The 2011 Crime, Police and Traffic Statistics Report also found that while calls for service to the Ottawa Police were up by about one per cent, the overall level of reported crime fell by over two percent in 2011. “The report provides an overview of police activities and initiatives, as well as crime and performance statistics for the past year,” said Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, chair of the Ottawa Police Services Board. “The data in this report is good news and, along with community feedback received in the 2012 public survey, helps to enhance our future problem solving efforts.” Ottawa police received 390,000 calls for service in 2011 with 36,622 Criminal Code of Canada offences being reported, down by 860 incidents.

Celebrate Canada Day with colourful strawberry cake



• 1 super-moist white cake mix (enough for 2 layers) • 1 package of frozen strawberries (or 2 cups of frozen berries) • 85 gram package strawberry Jello, or other jelly powder • 1/3 cup vegetable oil • 4 eggs

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff • 1 cup whipping cream • About 12 fresh whole strawberries, hulled and washed Partially thaw the strawberries before you start everything else. Grease and lightly flour a 33-by-20-centimetre cake pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, Jello powder, oil and eggs. Pour off any juice from the berries and add this to the bowl. With an electric mixer, mix the cake batter for two minutes. Turn the bowl occasionally to ensure that the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Fold the partially-thawed berries into the cake batter, then spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 F (160 C)

for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Since it’s easiest to serve this cake right from the pan, cool it completely in the pan. The cake can be baked a day ahead. If you make it in advance, wait until an hour or so before serving to finish it off. To finish the cake, in a small bowl, beat the whipping cream until it holds its shape. Spread this over the top of the cake. Arrange the strawberries on top of the whipped cream with the tips pointing up. The berries can also be sliced and arranged so that every slice of cake will have berries on it. Keep chilled until serving time. Serves 12-14.

his red and white strawberry cake is a perfect way to celebrate Canada Day. The recipe came from a very good friend whose name is also Pat and it’s always on the menu on Canada Day. This is one of the best cakes I’ve ever tasted. The ingredients are readily available – frozen strawberries, a white cake mix, strawberry Jello powder, eggs and oil. Topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, it’s a terrific red and white dessert for July 1. Keep the ingredients on hand though because it’s so easy and so good you’ll want to make it for other occasions too.

Presto gets delayed until February 2013 Major technical issues in OC Transpo’s new smart card payment system leads to seven-month delay Laura Mueller

EMC news - A wide range of technical glitches, including software problems and faulty wiring on card readers, have stalled the launch

of OC Transpo’s Presto smart card, meaning the new system won’t be ready until Feb. 1, 2013. Originally scheduled to launch on July 1, the sevenmonth delay is the latest set-

back for the system that was aimed at replacing monthly passes, cash and eventually tickets. While transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans had recently hinted that an Aug. 1 Presto launch was possible, officials from the Toronto-based firm in charge of the smart card system faced a firing line at transit commission on June 20 when they announced that they would have to delay the launch until the new year.

And it looks like finding a Presto-based alternative to tickets or investigating opportunities for cell-phone enabled “near field communication” payments won’t happen until well into the new year. Mayor Jim Watson says he has no desire to push for those improvements to the system until after it is launched successfully. “My view is let’s not add bells and whistles to the system until we get the base system working and operating to our satisfaction,” Watson said in an interview. Social service agencies had complained that the city will be putting low-income residents and those who use social services at a disadvantage by making tickets a costlier option for each trip. During a transit com-

mission meeting on June 20, Deans repeatedly asked Bruce McCuaig, chief executive of Metrolinx, the provincial agency that oversees the Presto program, to explain how Ottawa and OC Transpo could have confidence in the system given all the issues and delays. McCuaig said the long delay is necessary to give time to work out the kinks. Rolling it out any earlier could cause more issues, mainly due to the influx of university students returning in the fall. The intervening period will give Metrolinx and the city time to work on restoring confidence in the system and convincing riders to use it despite the issues, McCuaig said. Some transit commissioners weren’t convinced that will be easy.

“There is no confidence in the card now,” said Marianne Wilkinson, transit commissioner and councillor for Kanata North. McCuaig said he appreciates that demonstrating reliability will be important and a longer delay will help them ensure everything works and that the public has a good impression of the system. COSTS

McCauig said Metrolinx is willing to offset the additional costs the delay will cause for the city, but they still don’t have complete information from OC Transpo of what all the financial implications could be. That didn’t please transit See COUNCILLORS, page 19

Presto has been delayed until February 2013 due to major technical glitches.

Councillors question Presto provider commissioner Keith Egli, councillor for Knoxdale-Merivale. “I don’t want the impact on our taxpayers lessened, I want it indemnified,” he said. Egli grilled McCuaig on that issue, getting him to confirm that “offset” would mean a “dollar for dollar” refund. Egli was one in a string of transit commissioners who put the same pointed question to McCuaig: “What went wrong?” Although Presto is already in use in some southern Ontario cities in Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa will be the first to use the “second generation” Presto system that uses technology that hadn’t been tested in real-world situations until the Ottawa pilot project launched in May. But beyond faulty wiring and glitchy software that makes card readers display incorrect screens or even reboot when cards are tapped on them, serious customer service issues have also been identified at Presto’s call centre, including a

lack of bilingual attendants. The “white screen” issue, which happens when the readers won’t shut down properly or if they reboot unexpectedly, is proving to be tricky for Metrolinx and its technology provider, Accenture, to fix. In retrospect, McCuaig said, it would have been advisable to have more field testing of the new system before putting it onto OC Transpo buses and a longer “fiends and family” pilot period to test the cards. “We had high hopes for Presto,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “The mistake made was that there should have been a longer period of testing. That didn’t happen.” Deans was successful in passing motion at transit commission on June 20 asking OC Transpo to reinstate the EcoPass program for one year. The discounted payroll reduction transit passes were cancelled, along with student passes for college students over age 19, to align Ottawa’s transit fares with the categories Metrolinx uses in Toronto, because users will be able to use the cards wherever Presto is in use.

Curtains will rise on the Kiwanis Idol concert Jennifer McIntosh

EMC events - The Kiwanis Idol 2012 Red Carpet concert at Scotiabank Place got the green light on June 16 thanks to a push from Kiwanis youth, and organizer Eldon Fox. Fears that the amateur talent show would have to be cancelled prompted a call to the public to purchase tickets. In early June, organizers needed to sell as many

as 2,000 tickets to fill the venue. The idols are set to hit the stage on June 30. Local teens Michelle Treacy and Lindsay White performed with other Kiwanis members at several free shows in the first week of June to raise money to make sure the curtain would go up on the annual show. “It’s tough without a headliner,” Fox said. “But most of these kids are better than your average headliners.” Kiwanis Idol was founded

in 2003 to provide a stage for local singers from the ages of 13 to 21. The winner each year receives recording sessions at a local studio. Nine finalists in the 2011 edition of Kiwanis Idol will be participating at the 2012 red carpet contest at Scotiabank Place, including winner Jordan McIntosh, Lindsay White and Michelle Treacy, Jamie Anne Bentz, Alexandra Maheral, Laura D’Amico, Noah Pellman, Jenna Taggart and Emma Nicholson. This is the first time the

show is happening at Scotiabank Place. In previous years it was held at the Centrepointe Theatre in Nepean or the Kailash Mital Theatre at Carleton University. The ticket prices have been reduced to $20 and can be purchased at Part of the proceeds will go to the Do it For Daron fund to support youth mental health care and research at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre.

EMC news - A new green team is going to help make the Canada Day in Kanata event even more environmentally friendly. The EcoTeam, made up of volunteers, will be near the waste stations set up throughout Walter Baker Park to help people divert as much garbage as possible into the proper recycling and organics bins. Canada Day in Kanata has exceeded its goal of 50 per cent of waste diversion over the last two years. “We’re able to capture both the plastic and aluminum cans and organics that would normally go into the landfill,” said Sarah Dehler, event environmental performance lead. “This year what we’d like to do is be a little more proactive in our approach to meeting that goal.” If someone is approaching the garbage with a container that still has fries in it, the EcoTeam volunteer can point them to the


The EcoTeam is still looking for volunteers to help out during Canada Day. Dehler said a team of 30 would be optimal and volunteers are only asked to donate about two hours of their time. “It’s another way for people to contribute their energies at the event. It’s designed to be a smaller time frame commitment because you are standing,” she said, adding volunteers will receive a free lunch. She said volunteers can come as part of a team or individually. Students can also use the hours towards the mandatory community service requirements for high school. For more information email volunteers@ or visit the website at

Curvy Girls raise awareness about scoliosis Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Curvy Girls of Ottawa are working to raise awareness about scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine. Kanata Lakes teenager Victoria Doherty joined the Curvy Girls Scoliosis Support group of Ottawa – a network for preteens and teenagers living with a spine curvature – in January after being diagnosed with scoliosis last year. “Being a part of this group has definitely helped me through my journey,” said Victoria, a Grade 9 student at All Saints Catholic High School. “It’s a really great feeling to be part of this group.” The Ottawa chapter of Curvy Girls meets once a month to offer support to both teens and their parents or caregivers. The only group of its kind in Canada, Curvy Girls was founded in the United States in 2006. The Ottawa chapter is working to build awareness and help others develop their own support networks in other cities. At the moment, the Curvy Girls of Ottawa – which was founded last September – hosts a video chat during the monthly meetings with two out-of-town girls, one from British Columbia and another from rural Ontario. “Our ultimate goal is really to raise awareness about scoliosis, get more people into our group, let them know they’re not the only ones,” said Victoria, who’s been delivering the Kanata Kourier-Standard for five years.

the lower part of the spine. Instead of looking like a straight line when faced head-on, Victoria’s spine looks more like a “C” in the lower portion. Her mother first noticed a change in Victoria’s spine when she was in Grade 7 and the following year Victoria was diagnosed with scoliosis. “At first we were really shocked,” said Victoria, adding she had no idea at the time what scoliosis was. She was told by doctors that she would need surgery to correct the curve. Liz went to the Internet to research the condition and stumbled on the Curvy Girls website. She also found a chiropractor and physiotherapist for Victoria. So far, Victoria hasn’t needed surgery, and with a combination of exercises and trips to her two specialists, her curve has improved by 10 degrees. She also wears a head weight to help put a little ‘SHOCKED’ bit of a curve back into her Victoria’s curvature is un- neck – which was completely usual, according to her moth- straight before Victoria start12-03-30 5:30 PM Page 1 ed therapy. erRTR Liz,Fillers_10x2 because it only affects

“We have seen on the Xray there’s actually a difference,” said Liz. CURVY GIRLS

Being a part of the Curvy Girls has helped Victoria, now 14, find a sense of belonging, she said. The girls discuss exercises, how they’re dealing with their situations and offer fashion advice for those girls who have to wear a special back brace. At the end of this month, Victoria, along with four other Ottawa families, will travel to Long Island, N.Y., for a two-day Curvy Girls convention. She said she’s “very excited” to learn about various treatment options, meet other girls like her and bring back ideas to help develop the Ottawa chapter. Liz added there is no routine screening in Canada. Parents usually have to request the family doctor check for scoliosis during a check up. “There’s a lack of information and a lack of awareness,”

she said. Some of the girls in the Ottawa group have traveled to Washington, D.C., or Barcelona, Spain, to be fitted for a back brace because of a lack of options available here, said Liz. The end goal is to develop a national scoliosis group that can offer support, financial backing and awareness campaigns across the country, said Liz. “That’s really the mission, to get out there and raise awareness.” The Curvy Girls of Ottawa recently held an awareness walk down Elgin Street to the mayor’s office where they met with Jim Watson. “We raised a lot of money for the group and for CHEO,” said Victoria. The group presented the children’s hospital with a cheque for more than $1,100 during the CHEO telethon. The group is also selling awareness bracelets to help raise funds for the group.

Open season for sponsoring names on city facilities, programs Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city’s push to find sponsors for its recreation centres and programs is now underway. The new Community Champions program, a marketing initiative to seek sponsorships for city facilities in exchange for naming rights, was launched at Ben Franklin Place on Monday, June 25. By paying the city anywhere from $5,000 to $75,000-plus each year, companies, foundations, groups or individuals can buy the right to name a city facility or program. “Those who choose to become Community Champions

actively marketed before so very few businesses approached the city offering to become sponsors. For instance, the city announced last year that local developer Richcraft Homes had purchased the naming rights for a new rec centre to be built in Kanata: the Richcraft Recreation Complex. For potential “community champions,” helping create a strong community and good quality of life is also good for business, the mayor said to a group of city staff and businesspeople gathered for the launch. Watson assured residents that the Community Champions program will be undertaken with “integrity and

create a lasting legacy through their investment in their city in ways that benefit residents where they live, where they work and where they play,” Mayor Jim Watson said. Watson said sponsorship arrangements have to be “winwin”: they benefit the city by creating new revenue to help cover the cost of municipal programs and services, and they benefit the sponsoring company, group or individual by providing them with a marketing opportunity. Richard Barton, acting manager of corporate partnerships, emphasized that these sponsorship opportunities have been available since council approved the policy in 2005, but they were never

good taste.” Facilities that have been named to honour someone under the city’s commemorative naming policy will not be available for sponsorship or renaming, said Dan Chenier, general manager of parks, recreation and cultural services. Sponsors will get to have more of a say in how their name is presented at a facility they purchase the naming rights for, Chenier said. The sign could feature the company’s logo, or a group might want to put up a plaque in addition to the sign.


Any city-owned facility is up for grabs for sponsorship naming (aside from those that already bear commemorative names), but the city will focus its marketing efforts on 11 sites: • Canterbury Recreation Complex • Goulbourn Recreation Complex • Kanata Leisure Centre and Wave Pool • Kanata Recreation Complex • Nepean Sportsplex • Pinecrest Recreation Complex

• Richmond Arena Two sites, Ray Friel Recreation Complex and Walter Baker Sports Centre, will be marketed for internal naming opportunities only, such as certain rooms or facilities like a pool or rink. Any citywide program or service, such as community gardens, swimming lessons or summer day camps, can also be sponsored for naming rights, as well as any ice pad, wading pool, beach, sports field or ball diamond. Annual events such as the Mayor’s Halloween Party can also be sponsored.


Shin Splints: Running Into Problems? By: Your Local Family Physiotherapy Team exercises such as walking, running or jumping without proper recovery. For example, if a triathlete takes a hiatus from running for 3 months and starts training again by running everyday for 5km without proper rest, their legs would likely not be able to handle the sudden increase in stress. When the body cannot strengthen the bone fast enough to keep up with the stress being placed on them, shin splints occur. Other factors that may contribute to shin splints include flat feet, old shoes, running or walking on hard surfaces, tight calf muscles and weak ankle stabilizers. Preferred treatment for shin splints typically includes ice

and rest - depending on the stage of severity. A visit to your local family physiotherapist may help you speed up the process by providing you with appropriate exercises, run/walk programs, assisted stretches, electrical modalities and orthotics if indicated. Identifying and addressing the cause of the problem will help to avoid any future run-ins with pain!

Lower leg pain, commonly referred to as ‘shin splints’, is an overuse injury that irritates many a runner or athlete. Shin splint pain can be classified into four stages based on severity: 1. Light pain or stiffness after exercise. 2. Pain at the beginning of exercise, disappearing during the warm-up. 3. Pain during and following exercise, and pain at night. Pain disappears after long rest and inactivity. 4. Constant pain. The pain does not disappear after rest. Shin splints occur when excessive loading and stress is placed on the lower leg bone (tibia) during weight bearing

EMC news – The PepTides, Fevers and Young Empires will headline a “Come out and play”-themed Capital Pride festival this year. The annual Capital Pride Festival will run from Aug. 17 to 26, with the parade and Pride Day wrapping up festivities on Aug. 26.

Mayor Jim Watson and Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi were on hand at city hall on June 21 to help announce the event’s theme and headlining acts. Naqvi’s recent work to support the GLBTQ community was applauded during the event. The Ottawa Centre MPP put his name on Toby’s Law, a bill to amend the Ontario Human Rights Code to include gender identity and gender expression. “You’ve made our theme, ‘Come out and play,’ a reality because we can come out and celebrate,” Pride chair Loresa Novy told Naqvi. Watson thanked the fes-

ServiNg KaNata North

City Councillor, Kanata North




Sunday, July 1st is Canada Day in Kanata! Organized by a dedicated and hardworking-volunteer committee, it takes place at Walter Baker Park (just off Terry Fox Dr. at Maple Grove Rd.). The park will be alive with activity all day. I’ll be going to the Seniors’ Breakfast at 9 am and then will be at my tent from about 1 pm to 6 pm. I’ll have again maple leaf tattoos for everyone (until supplies run out) and will be happy to meet you there. More than 30,000 people of all ages enjoy our fabulous Canada Day right here in Kanata, particularly families, as it is a safe place for young children. Enjoy entertainment all day, and a children’s play area with face painting, crafts, bouncies and more. Also, there will be a food court, exhibits, entertainment including Crash the Clown and the Suburban Monkeys, a mechanical bull, a midway, plus other fun activities. For information about the many acts on the main stage go to http://www.canadadayinkanata. com. The day ends with a great fireworks display. See you there!


Anyone who put in a comment to the City Planner on the zoning application for 2 The Parkway will receive a copy of the report that is going to the Planning Committee on July 9th. As soon as I get my copy I will have it put on my website. I’ll be able to put the staff recommendation into my next column so anyone interested in speaking at the Committee will have the information.


A report is going to the Finance and Economic Development Committee on July 3rd recommending that a vote take place in the Kanata North Business Park area identified for the formation of a Business Improvement Area (BIA). The committee decision will then go to the Council meeting on July 11th for final approval. If the recommendation is accepted, then the City will send notices to all property owners in the area with a legal requirement for those owners to circulate to all their tenants in the area. Under the Municipal Act, tenants and owners can notify the City if they are not in favour of having a BIA. The City will tabulate the results and if fewer than 30% are opposed, the BIA will be approved. Then a general meeting of the businesses in the area will be held to select a Board of Directors and prepare the first budget, so that the BIA can start operating as of the 1st of January, 2013.



There are a lot of people using bicycles who are failing to follow the rules of the road. Bicycles are vehicles and cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists! Please ensure that all members of your family are familiar with the following: - Bicycles must have an operating bell and on joint paths, e.g. in parks, cyclists must use their bells to warn pedestrians that they are being approached. - Stop at all stop signs and red lights. - Cycle on the right side of the road. - Ride on the road, not the sidewalk. - Use proper lighting when riding at night. - Use proper hand signalling when turning and stopping. - Remember to wear a CSA certified helmet (it’s the law for cyclists under the age of 18). - Be predictable in traffic - ride in a straight line - ride at least one meter from the curb. - Give pedestrians the right of way. - Always shoulder check when turning. - Ride defensively.


At the Transportation Committee on July 4th a report will be considered recommending the purchase of lands near Terry Fox Dr. for a future Park and Ride. A new, large Park and Ride in that area will free up many spaces at the Eagleson Park and Ride. Once developed, staff have indicated that there will be express service from that location to downtown.

accomplish over the next 18 months. The Seje community is actively involved in this project, raising funds to purchase a

two acre site for the school. The partnership is geared at helping Seje become a sustainable community, not a dependant community.

The Seje community is also going to purchase land for agriculture. The community will grow crops and sell them to help support the school.


EMC news - Last week’s Walk For Water organized by the Community Bible Church in Stittsville is just one of the ways the congregation is working to help the village of Seje in Kenya. Besides raising funds to expand the water infrastructure in Seje, the Community Bible Church has entered into a partnership with the Seje community to help the people become more sustainable and self sufficient. Seje is a cluster of villages on the western edge of Kenya that is home to 5,000 people. Community Bible Church members Neil Jackman and Ron Killeen told the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville about this partnership during a presentation on June 19. While providing clean water to the Seje community is a primary focus, health, agriculture and education are also key areas. Killeen described the Community Bible Church’s involvement in partnership with Seje as an “amazing adventure.” He has nothing but praise for the people of Seje, whom he calls phenomenal, noting that in the midst of all their poverty and illness and hardship, they still enjoy life. “They who have nothing in life seem to find joy in everyday things,” Killeen said. There is much poverty in the Seje area, with most families living on less than a dollar a day. He said that AIDS has impacted about 20 per cent of the population in the region. He pointed out that there is a high mortality rate in the region, with 40 per cent of the children dying by the age of one due to bad water, malaria or AIDS. By the age of five, 60 per cent of children have died. Killeen said when the Community Bible Church first started dealing with the Seje community, education was not on the church’s radar. However, the people of Seje said education was an important goal for them so it has become part of the partnership. The Community Bible Church has helped open a school for orphans where the children receive not only education but also food. The classroom is currently in a hut, with two grades and 51 children. Members of the congregation of the Community Bible Church sponsor the children for $40 a month, which covers food, clothing, books, a teacher and health care. The next step will be to add another grade and erect a school building, a $100,000 project the church hopes to

Scrumptuous Strawberry Jam

41 WAY




















It is recommended that the berries are placed in the coolest spot in your car for your journey home. It is actually best for the berries to go straight home and be placed in a fridge or very cool spot. If you are making jam or freezing the berries - the sooner the better. Pick you berry farms use lots of clean straw between rows of plants to keep berries and pickers clean and dry. Bring along a camera to capture special moments. Most farms have picnic tables, so a snack or lunch is a great way to celebrate a "job" well done. Most Important Tip: Fresh air, lovely red strawberries, beautiful country setting, and happy pickers... it all adds up to a very pleasant summer outing.

Orange Crushers live up to their name  


EMC news - The Orange Crushers have lived up to their name. This team, one of seven in the “survivor� contest happening this summer at Curves in Stittsville, crushed the opposition as it won the first challenge to design and create a team banner. Crushed may be a little strong since it was a close contest, with the Orange Crushers just edging out the banners by the Flashing Green team and The Peeps team. But the Orange Crushers prevailed in this initial survivor challenge. The judging, done by Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri and Stittsville News EMC news editor John Curry, was based on three criteria: originality, creativity and teamwork. All of the teams deserve marks for creativity and originality in their names. Besides the Orange Crushers, Flashing Green and The Peeps, there are Women in Black, Red Hot Mommas, Blue Belles and The Sizzling Suns. Curves owner Vivienne Vanieris developed this “survivor� challenge to run over the summer in order to encourage members to work out at least three times a week. Members were divided into seven teams, largely based on the time of day they work out

EMC news - Throughout July and August, children are welcome to join in the fun at Baxter Conservation Area’s summer camp programs. The camps let children learn about their natural environment.

It’s a great chance for children to reconnect with nature, exploring wetlands, meadow and forest habitat with outdoor educators. Baxter Conservation Area is 60 hectares of conservation land located along the shores of the Rideau River between Kars and Kemptville. For campers between ages 10 and 14, two one-week canoe camps are available. Campers will experience tandem paddling and camping, navigation skills, trip cooking, introductory first aid, trip planning and preparation.

Tim Hortons Dragon Boat festival I am privileged to have been chosen as the Honourary Chair of Dragon Boat Foundation this year. The event, which took place at Mooney’s Bay last weekend, was a huge success. I would especially like to thank Shona Flemming, Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation Coordinator and John Brooman, Executive Director of the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. The festival would not have been such a success if it were not for their hard work and dedication. There were 204 teams who participated this year, which is the most to have ever paddled in the festival. I would like to thank all of the paddlers for participating and making this year the largest North American Dragon Boat festival to date. I would also like to thank all those who raised funds and donated to the festival. Your effort has helped seven deserving local charities: the Youth Services Bureau, ArtsSmarts, the Bruyere Foundation, the CHEO Foundation, Debra Dynes Family House, the Ottawa Humane Society, and the University Of Ottawa Institute Of Mental Health Research.

Fireworks bylaw will be enforced Canada Day weekend City of Ottawa

The City of Ottawa wants to remind residents that anyone partaking in fireworks displays over the Canada Day weekend should do so in a safe and courteous manner. The city’s fireworks bylaw clearly explains the procedures

around proper fireworks use. Consumer fireworks may be discharged on the day of, day before or day after Canada Day. They may be discharged only by someone age 18 or older and only on private property with the permission of the property owner. The fireworks

display must not cause danger or nuisance to any person or property. Display fireworks, such as those on Parliament Hill and smaller-scale versions at public parks on Canada Day weekend, may only be discharged by someone over 18 who holds a permit issued by the Ottawa

vincial law. If you know of anyone violating or planning to violate the fireworks bylaw, please call 311. To minimize the risk of fire and burn injury, Ottawa Fire Services does not recommend family fireworks or informal neighbourhood displays.

If you choose to have a family fireworks display, here are some important safety tips to be followed: • Keep a water hose or pail of water close by. • Discharge fireworks well away from combustible materials such as buildings, trees, dry grass and fuel containers. • Never try to re-light dud fireworks. Wait 30 minutes and soak them in a bucket of water.

Musician performs Oscar Peterson tribute brought on a robust burst of applause and shouts of approval from the audience when it was finished. This initial 40-minute performance by Chmaj was followed by the vocal jazz group Quintessence which performed a cappella, beginning with the song “Happy Together,” a 1967 tune made famous by the group The Turtles. Members of Quintessence include Paul Jay and Paul Melsness, owners of Gaia Java Coffee Company, Susan Mayo, Jean-Francois Fauteux, Barbara Jovaisas and Marion Xhignesse. They were followed by a return of pianist John Chmaj who accompanied the offerings of two talented horn players, both of whom are graduating from Nepean High School, namely Claire Devlin on saxophone and Emily Denison on trumpet. The evening wrapped up with a jam session with everyone involved – Chmaj, Quintessence and the two horn players. Jazz pianist Chmaj, who is from Seattle, is a seasoned professional pianist on the American jazz scene. He is currently working in Ottawa and this was the third time that he has played at Gaia Java Coffee in Stittsville. Gaia Java Coffee co-owner Paul Jay explained at last Friday’s musical evening that several months ago, Chmaj

EMC news - Oscar Peterson was in Stittsville on Friday, June 22. Not Peterson himself since this legendary Canadian jazz pianist and composer passed away in 2007 but his presence was very much in the westend community as his music reverberated through the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre thanks to the keyboard magic of John Chmaj. This Seattle-based jazz pianist announced when he began playing that he was launching a new project of his that evening, namely presenting a tribute to the great pianist, who in his career lasting over 60 years released over 200 recordings, won eight Grammy Awards and was considered one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time. Chmaj’s tribute to Peterson included all pieces from the pianist’s repertoire except for one, an original tune called “Victoria Day” that John himself had composed recently in Stittsville. And so while it was Chmaj and not Oscar Peterson at the keyboard, it was very much familiar Oscar Peterson’s tunes, played in a robust, energetic adventurous piano style, that filled the air at the Gaia Java Coffee shop, causing toes to tap, fingers to rap and lips to smile among the crowd which

grew quickly to over 50 as the evening, with its 7 p.m. start, progressed. The Oscar Peterson tribute began with “On Green Dolphin Street,” the 1947 song written for a movie of that name that became a jazz standard and was recorded by a litany of jazz greats including Peterson. He followed this up with a song more commonly associated with Frank Sinatra but one also performed by Peterson: “Fly Me To The Moon.” Next came one of Peterson’s favourites, “Night Train,” with its rousing rhythms as interpreted by Chmaj resonating through the Gaia Java Coffee shop. And if this were not enough, Chmaj followed it up by making his keyboard sing with a ballad “Polka Dots and Moonbeans,” a 1940 song which was Sinatra’s first hit with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and which has since become a jazz standard. After Chmaj played his original new song “Victoria Day,” giving it what he termed was its world premiere, he returned to his Oscar Peterson tribute, finishing up this initial portion of his Gaia Java Coffee shop appearance with two jazz and Peterson standards, “Georgia On My Mind” and “Sweet Georgia Brown,” the last a rousing tune played at a torrid pace with his hands flying across the keys, which

Puppeteer returns to Stittsville for Canada Day celebration John Curry

EMC news – A puppeteer who has entertained people across the world is returning home to Stittsville for Canada Day. Ben Durocher, 22, will appear on stage in front of Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville on July 1, starting at 5:45 p.m., performing a few songs and entertaining with his puppets. Durocher, who attended Lorne Cassidy Elementary School and Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville, will be around the Canada Day celebrations for more than just his stage appearance. Starting about 2 p.m., he will be roaming around the grounds with his puppets, keeping people entertained. Durocher, who now lives in New York City, graduated from the Musical Conservatory at the University of Cincinnati in April 2011 and since then he had managed to

keep busy in the musical theatre and puppetry fields in the United States. He performed in the musical “Forever Plaid” in upstate New York and then joined the cast of “ImaginOcean,” a musical black-light puppet show that toured all over the United States, hitting some 40 cities or so, as well as going overseas to Singapore. “It was a lot of fun,” Durocher says about this touring experience, saying that it allowed him to see a number of United States cities that he would not have been able to visit otherwise. The show allowed Durocher to use both his puppetry and his singing talents. “It was totally a great combination of the two,” he says, noting that the fact that he does both musical theatre and puppetry seems to be an asset in the competitive milieu of the theatre. Durocher returned home to Stittsville last week after attending a puppetry confer-

ence in Connecticut. This week-long event with workshops and classes features the presence of puppet masters from around the world. Durocher will be staying home in Stittsville until early August when he will be heading to Milwaukee, Wis. to be involved in another musical production involving puppets called Avenue Q. This show will be running for seven weeks. While at home, Durocher will be performing at the upcoming Puppets Up festival in Almonte. Stittsville’s Canada Day celebrations are taking place again this year at the front of Sacred Heart High School on Abbott Street at Shea Road. An official opening will be held at 3 p.m., followed by stage entertainment through to the gala fireworks at 9:45 p.m. or so. There will also be a variety of activities on the grounds throughout the afternoon.

MISSISSIPPI MILLS Increasingly, young families and baby boomers are moving out of the city and opting to downsize into homes with exceptional value in friendly communities in the National Capital Region. Mississippi Mills is one such community, which is located about 35 minutes from downtown Ottawa and 20 minutes from Kanata. The Town of Mississippi Mills is a diverse community of rural and small towns covering 500 square kilometres of land just West of Ottawa. It was created with the amalgamation of the Wards of Pakenham, Almonte, and Ramsay in Lanark County.

Benefits to Moving to Mississippi Mills 1. Mississippi Mills is recognized for its natural and architectural beauty, quality of life, and respect for its heritage and environment. People of all ages will enjoy visiting and exploring this wonderful region. Outdoor activities are abundant in the area, thus attracting avid hikers, cyclers, swimmers, fishermen and golfers.

Stittsville opens disability-friendly ice surface Goulbourn Recreation Complex boasts expanded services John Curry

EMC news – An NHL-sized ice surface specially equipped to serve hockey players with physical disabilities was officially opened at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on June 20. The ice pad meets the new provisions of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act for sledge hockey, a sport which allows those with a physical disability to play the game of hockey. This means that there are widened team benches to accommodate sledges which are basically two skate blades on a metal frame that allows the puck to pass underneath. It also means that there is synthetic ice available that can laid down when sledge hockey teams are playing to link the ice surface with the dressing room area. In addition, the board glass has been extended and also lowered to provide enhanced viewing capabilities. This new ice pad facility also has six change rooms, an expanded referee room and a tournament friendly reception lobby. It is outside, though, where one of the facility’s most unique features is located. There are designated parking spots for electric vehicles

with the spots equipped with “pay for use” electrical vehicle charging posts or outlets where electrical vehicles can be parked by arena visitors and charged at a nominal fee. This is the first installation of its kind at a city arena and this installation to service electric vehicles has helped the facility achieve Leadership in Energy Efficient Design (LEED) targets for environmental and energy efficiency standards. An official opening for this $8.7 million facility, which marks the final phase of a multi-year renovation and expansion project for the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, was held on Wednesday afternoon, June 20, attended by city dignitaries and staff along with other special guests including Stittsville native Matt Bradley who plays for Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League. “The City of Ottawa is committed to providing families and kids with the opportunities they need to participate in sports and healthy activities,” Mayor Jim Watson said at the official opening. “That’s why we froze recreation fees in our first two budgets and that’s why we’re breaking down the barriers faced by residents in our community who have disabilities,” he added.

John Brummell

The city officially opened the second ice surface at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville on Wednesday, June 20. Taking part in the ceremony were from left, sledge hockey player Todd Nicholson, Mayor Jim Watson, Stittsville Coun.

Shad Qadri, Stittsville native and National Hockey League player Matt Bradley, Coun Mark Taylor, who is chair of council’s community and protective services committee, Mark Gallant, who is head coach and general manager of the Ottawa Sledge Hammers sledge hockey team, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson and sledge hockey player Angelo Gavillucci.

“Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the Goulbourn Recreation Complex each year and with this expansion, the city can offer them improved services in an extraordinary structure that meets their recreational needs,” Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri said at the official opening. He called the day a significant one not only for Stittsville but for the entire city with the official opening of this new NHL-size ice surface, now known as Arena B at the Goulbourn Recreation

Complex. Others at the official opening included city of Ottawa councillor Mark Taylor who is chair of council’s community and protective services committee, Kanata councillors Allan Hubley and Marianne Wilkinson , city staff Wayne

Newell, Kevin Wherry and Julia Chenier, Keith Dickie representing the architectural firm, Mark Gallant, head coach and general manager of the Ottawa Sledgehammers sledge hockey team, and Cathy Skinner, a longtime coach with the Goulbourn

Skating Club. The official opening ceremony involved the unveiling of a plaque, a ceremonial puck drop and a ribbon cutting. The official opening was followed by a period of free public skating on the new ice surface.

MPP says province needs to hold the line on paycheques Jennifer McIntosh

Jennifer McIntosh

Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, pictured at the announcement of the expansion of Bayshore Shopping Centre, says the project is an indicator people are willing to invest in the local economy.

EMC news – The provincial government is asking teachers, doctors and public sector workers to hold off demands for wage increases in order to balance the books. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli said after the provincial budget was passed that one of the key elements in getting rid of the deficit over the next five years is to control spending on compensation for those three sectors. “We are asking those people to take a pause for two years,” he said, adding he hoped the various sectors would work with the province in upcoming labour negotiations. “The average increase for teachers between negotiations and moving up on the pay scale is eight per cent per year. That is not sustainable,” Chiarelli said, adding that wage freezes will permit more hires and allow class sizes to stay at their reduced level. “If negotiations don’t work, legislation may be necessary,” he said. Chiarelli added that doctors’ salaries have increased as much as a 100 per cent in the

last three years. Chiarelli also looked to the province’s school boards to develop an asset management plan as fewer government dollars will be available for capital projects. That may also mean that underutilized schools will have to be closed. “We have left it up to the board for local decision making on which schools have to be combined,” he said. “But there are schools sitting at 40, 50 and 60 per cent capacity with no change in sight. A decision has to be made.” Chiarelli said the budget does make room for education spending in some areas. “We wanted to keep full day kindergarten,” he said. “And that’s what the education adviserrs recommend.” There will also continue to be a 30 per cent tuition fee discount for post-secondary students and 60,000 new student spaces at colleges and universities over the next three years across the province.

grams, to allow seniors to stay in their homes. “We have also started moving forward with our election promise of doctors making house calls,” Chiarelli said. A new MRI was delivered to the Queensway Carleton Hospital in early June and Chiarelli said the hospital’s operating budget will be increased. With the new ambulatory care unit, three new operating rooms and dialysis machines, Chiarelli said the hospital needed a budget increase to be able to cover the new services. ECONOMY

Despite the need for fiscal control, Chiarelli said things are looking up economically. “A lot of people are interested in investing in the economy,” he said, adding that recent announcement of the expansion of Bayshore Shopping Centre will mean 400 new permanent jobs and 1,500 construction jobs. Chiarelli added the expansion of Ikea meant almost 450 new hires. The infrastructure projects on Highway 417 east and west and light rail transit will also bring in more jobs. “We are on track,” he said.

Stittsville youth heading to 2012 world karate championships West-end teen qualifies for world kickboxing and karate championship in Orlando, Fla. Staff

EMC sports - Bren Hunter continues to win. The young karate enthusiast from Stittsville won six medals at the 2011 World Karate Association (WKA) World Championships in Germany including two world champion gold medals. This year, he won four medals at the Canadian team qualifying event in Brossard, Que. on June 15-17, meaning he’s qualified for the Canadian team headed to this year’s WKA world kickboxing and karate championships at the gates of Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla. this coming September. Bren qualified for the Canadian team in four categories. He won gold in the boys under-55 kilograms point fighting and silver in boys’ creative weapons. In addition, he captured


the bronze in both the boys’ musical weapons and the boys’ Korean patterns. He finished fourth in three other areas, making him the Canadian team alternate for each of these categories. Bren has done all of this despite competing in the boys’ age 13 to 17 category for the first time, as he just turned 13 last October. This placed him in categories competing against much older and more experienced athletes but despite being the rookie in this age category, he managed to shine. Now, he is headed to the WKA world kickboxing and karate championships for the fourth consecutive year. On this Canadian team, he will be joining 11 others who train at the Canadian Sport Martial Arts Academy (CSMA) on Iber Road in Stittsville. CSMA teammates who will be joining Bren at the WKA championships in Florida in September are Alison Ferguson, Emma Cross, Stephen Cross, Jimmy Fitzsimmons, Larissa Ide, Millan Wang, Stewart Wilkinson, Sue Lagasi, Kayla Shepherd, Shivani Sivabalan and Jason Dupuis. Bren is heading to these 2012 world championships with the goal of making it to the podium in his new age division.

He had set a goal of being a world champion before the age of 13 and this he achieved last year thanks to a lot of dedication, hard work and heart, sacrificing other things to become expert in karate. Bren gained experience in world championship events by competing in the WKA world championships in Spain in 2009. He was back at the world championships in Scotland in 2010 where he won three bronze medals. And then last year he won six medals including two world championship gold medals in Germany, dominating the boys’ under 13 age category. What was an eye-catching accomplishment at these 2011 WKA world championships was the performance of Bren and his partner Max Kelland of Gatineau. They captured the gold medal and the 2011 world champion title for synchronized freestyle teams not in the under-13 age category but in the junior under 17 division. After finishing second in the elimination round, Bren and Max became world champions by beating the top seeded United States team in the final round.

Fitzroy Harbour woman is fabulous in her forties

EMC news – For most, the prospect of turning 40 years old is not a welcome achievement. It is often viewed as a settling in for a long decade full of dull routine and responsibility. No experimenting; no pushing the boundaries; no revealing sides of the self held dormant for many years. Not so for Lisa Kopil. Come the latter half of her 30’s, the mother of three who calls Fitzroy Harbour home began to relish the notion of hitting the big four-O. “I was looking forward to turning 40. Turning 40 was excellent,” Kopil said. “Because I stopped caring about what other people thought I was doing. I just stopped – like that!” The epiphany sparked more than a change in attitude. Kopil, who found herself divorced about that time five years ago, began taking on new projects and developing skills she never knew she had. First it was music. On a weekend away with girlfriends, she was pressed to do more with her voice then to sing for those around her. They encouraged her to perform in front of audiences. “I was always a closet sing-

er, and of course I would sing to the kids,” she recalled. “But it never occurred to anything else.” She did a lot else. Kopil tried out for a Rural Root production, Cheating Hearts, and – lo and behold – she won the part. A singer who also plays guitar, Kopil, a double threat, carried the lead role. “And the funny thing is I found out I got the part on my 40th birthday.” Only problem was that after the play ended, Kopil went through performance withdrawal. She was hooked on exploring her creative side, on sharing beautiful music with roomfuls of people. But the curtain came down. Luckily for her the creative arts are one of those fields where networks are easily established, and if a gig opens anywhere in the region it won’t take long before a budding singer learns about it. “I had never even heard of an open mic. I went to one at the pub in Ashton.” Then it was J.R.’s in Almonte. She does Swampfest in Kinburn. She plays her acoustic guitar and sings Saturday afternoons under the gazebo at Penny’s Fudge Factory, within walking distance of her home. She’s in a band: Running

Lisa Kopil never really saw herself as a creative person. She said pre-40’s self never would have believed she could be a lead singer in two bands and grow a successful jewelry-making business on the side. Naked. She’s in another band: Aim 2 Please. The former is geared toward dancing; the latter is bluesier.


“If you’d have told me when I was 40 I would be doing all this, I never would have believed it,” said Kopil, whose sound resembles Melissa Etheridge’s. She said music is all about passion. If you have the basics down, the audience will respond to your level of commitment to the song. “It’s all about expressing something in you that’s different than somebody else,” she said. “If you have a passion for something and you do it, you can do more than you think.” She’s amazed at how her voice has grown through practice, well beyond anything she expected. Her favourite song to perform? Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. JEWELRY MAKER

Obviously the music thing wasn’t enough. Kopil had to get into jewelry-making at

about the same time. Again it was at the insistence of friends who commented on the lovely piece she wore around her neck following a day-long Reiki session with her sister in Wakefield. She explains that different crystals have different “energy” sources. And that if you chose wisely, the right one will bring “clarity” to your life. “It helps unblock you,” she said. It’ll either heal or foster creativity or any number of effects. While she understands the skeptics roll their eyes, Kopil insists that it doesn’t matter if the cause is from the gemstones or from your own psychological state. What matters is that you are growing in a positive direction. “It doesn’t matter if it comes from the stone or yourself, as long as you feel better.” She started selling to friends, then in gift shops in Dunrobin, Constance Bay,


Bama Hi! My name is Bama and I am a five year old retired racing greyhound. I recently found my forever home thanks to the Greyhound Supporters of the National Capital Region. My happy demeanour, expressive ears and long legs pique the curiosity of my neighbours. I love to meet them and hear them gush over me. I am so charming that even my feline sister -- who commands the highest respect -- is warming up to me!

and Arnprior. Seven hundred pieces later, she’s a bona fide success. Now she’s into teaching both music and jewelry making. “You think it’s other people holding you back because you are afraid they will judge you. But it’s not. It’s you who is holding you back.” Perhaps most remarkable of all is that Kopil never believed she was a creative person. She is organized as only a mother of three (Will, 13, Jon, 11, and Abby, 10, all at Stonecrest Elementary School) can be. She has a mind for business. So it comes as a pleasant surprise that this other side of her was there all along. Does she regret the lost years? “I don’t have any time for regrets,” she said, laughing.

This dapper gentlemen was found abandoned in a locked cat carrier in the countryside even his name was marked on the carrier... we kept it. He could have been torn into pieces by a fisher... We were lucky to find him. Approximately three years young and he was also declawed. He is trying so hard to be adopted.. Every time some one comes he makes every effort to touch them with his paw, give head butts and glues himself to them.... Yes! they notice him but then another feline gets into the picture and steals them away from him. Last two times he had even packed his belongings... Maybe the 3rd. time will be the lucky charm ! He is so sweet, attentive and affectionate not to mention handsome; who gets him will be so lucky to be loved by him.... Maybe he is waiting for you!

Dunrobin woman develops foot friendly flip flops

EMC lifestyle - Love them or hate them, the flip flop is one of the most popular pieces of footwear out there. And the variations of the flat-soled sandal with a Vshaped toe strap are endless. Marcie Weber knows a thing or two about flip flops and she estimates she has purchased at least 100 pairs in her lifetime. But they never lasted or fit the way she wanted. So, the Dunrobin resident decided to create a collection of flip flops that are fashionable, longer lasting, more comfortable and offer more foot support than their traditional counterpart. “My biggest issue was comfort,” she says. “And the standard flip flop is not that good for you. There is no arch support.” Weber began wondering why someone hadn’t come up with a flip flop “that is pretty and comfortable.” So she did, and her line of designer flip flops called Love Beach was born. “The vision was to bring the flip flop into the 20th century,” she says, noting flip flops are big business – selling approximately 20 million pairs in Canada and 200 million in the United States last year. After spending years in the high tech industry, Weber decided to take a break. She was not only ready for a professional change but the challenge of trying to create the perfect flip flop. Researching styles and brands, she began searching for a designer that could bring her vision to life. She found

one, who has worked on major athletic brand shoes, in Toronto. He came up with a flip flop that has a triple layered sole, arch support and a gel cushion for heel support. The toe strap is made of plastic and hugs the foot while holding its shape. There is also traction control on the bottom with an anti-slip sole. The entire patent pending design “has some of the traits of a performance shoe.”

“We were looking for something that was fun, functional and foot friendly.” Marcie Weber

Factor in bright vibrant colours and gold-plated pendants for the toe strap, and the shoes are ready to go from the beach to the dining room without missing a beat. Market testing generated positive feedback which Weber took as a sign she had hit her mark. “It felt more like a shoe than a flip flop,” was a common comment received during market testing. Other comments indicated the hugging fit of the shoe and comfort meant consumers would likely wear them longer. “This should last longer than your average flip flop,” Weber says. “And these will be better for your feet.” The shoes are water resistant and clean easily with soap and water.

Marcie Weber spent three years researching, developing and market testing the perfect flip flop and she believes she has created it with her Love Beach line. They are designed to be more comfortable, fashionable and longer lasting than the traditional flip flop.

“We were looking for something that was fun, functional and foot friendly,” Weber says of the Love Beach line. “You can dress them up with your sundress or wear them to the beach.” The product line, Love Beach, is named for a beach she discovered with her husband in the Bahamas. “This is definitely our flagship item,” she says of the traditional flip flop, but she adds a wedge is in the works as is a tween line. “It is such an easy fashion item…there was a pent up demand for something like this,” Weber states. “We are, frankly, delighted with the response.” And what’s not to love about flip flops that bear names like Love Bubble Lollipop, Love Bubble Mint, Peacock Sunrise, Peacock Turquoise (Weber’s favourite), Summer Floral Midnight and Summer Floral Pure White? Toe strap pendant designs include a daisy, summer flower and peacock, with others in the works. The flip flops have caught on quickly and are currently in 60 retail outlets in the United States in Canada. And the CAA (Canadian Automobile Association) has “ordered a bunch for destination wedding packages.” Locally, the flip flops are available at Artswear and Fraser’s Clothes Shop in Pembroke, Carleton Place IDA Drug Mart and Graham’s Shoes in Carleton Place, Stittsville IDA Drugmart, Fraser’s Clothes Shop in Renfrew and Just Casual in Almonte. They can also be purchased online through lovebeachstyle. com. They retail for $40.
