Huntley Centennial educators among best in city JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

It was the teachers’ time to shine at the Capital Educators Edugala on May 20, honouring the National Capital Region’s best and brightest. Nominations for the awards were open to educators employed by the four publicly-funded school boards, two colleges and the four universities in the city of Ottawa. More than 450 nominations were received for 327 educators. A panel of judges representing business, education and community-based organizations reviewed the 67 finalists and selected the 16 award recipients.

Christine Heath, a learning resource specialist at Huntley Centennial Public School in West Carleton, said she learned she was named a finalist while packing for a trip to Moose Jaw, Sask., to attend her sister’s funeral. “There were so many mixed emotions,” she said. “On the one hand I was really happy to be named, but it was such a sad time.” Heath works with teachers and educational assistants to best meet the requirements of special needs kids. She has been teaching for 15 years and has been working in her present capacity for the last four. “Every day brings new challenges,” she said.

Christine Heath, left, and Kimberly Simpson of Carp’s elementary school were among those celebrating educators at this year’s gala event. “And it is our job to make sure everyone – the parents, the students and the teachers – can

come together with a plan for success.” Both Heath and her colleague

Kimberly Simpson were nominated by their principal. “I think it’s so great, because you hope you do a good job, but to be validated in this way is incredible,” Simpson said. Simpson has been teaching Grade 7 for eight years and she said it’s the flexibility that makes her job wonderful. “Every day is different,” she said. “Being a teacher allows you to be a lifelong learner.” The Capital Educators’ Awards were created in the fall of 2001 by a group of business and education leaders who wanted to raise the profile of public education and recognize and celebrate the dedication and achievements of our local educators. The awards are managed by OCRI.

Councillor offers answers before Bay beach meeting ELI EL-CHANTIRY Ward 5 councillor The following Q&A is provided to help answer questions asked in emails and phone calls to my office concerning property ownership in Constance Bay. First it must be understood the City of Ottawa has a limited interest with respect to determining who are the owners of and entitled to access to the beach. This question is largely for those who live in the community and believe that they have an entitlement to utilize the beach. Where the city does have a role, in particular the City Clerk and Solicitor Department, is in providing advice to the police so they can access what is their jurisdiction (e.g. laying charges under

the Liquor License Act if the beach is considered public versus measures under the Trespass to Property Act if the beach is private.) I also note that the situation in each plan of subdivision must be analyzed on its own as each have their unique facts. Q: Why are the Lane Street residents being given the rights to property that they didn’t have before? A: An interpretation has been made of the Plan of Subdivision registered on title and it would appear that this is something that they have owned all along. Q: Are beaches not considered public places – similar to parks? A: Not all beaches and waterfront are public.

Q: Has anyone considered reviewing the official land surveys? Maybe the landowners had them changed when the City of Ottawa allowed this? A: The City of Ottawa did not allow or prohibit public access. The legal opinion provided on ownership is based on a document that is registered with the Provincial Land Registry Office. Q: If we have a petition signed, will we be better able to convince the City of Ottawa to change their minds on privatizing the beach? A: The City of Ottawa does not have jurisdiction to change property ownership. This is not a game of numbers. There has been a legal opinion provided based on the laws that apply to this situation. The legal opinion was provided to the Ottawa Police to assist them

with assessing the jurisdiction they have regarding complaints relating to the beach. Q: What if the community started a donation campaign to raise funds to hire a lawyer to fight the privatization? A: The City of Ottawa does not have the authority to declare that the beach is public or private. As stated above the opinion was provided only in order to assist the police with their duties. In order to resolve this matter, an application would have to be commenced in court. The City of Ottawa would not be a party to this application.

Continued from front A: MPAC, the provincial property assessment body, determines the value of homes and that in turn is used for determining taxes. The assessed value of waterfront homes is greater than that of non-waterfront homes. Q: The beach has been shared by the community since the first subdivisions were established in 1927. The road allowances/lanes that were put in place in the plans of subdivision provided access points to the beach for the whole community. Why are there road allowances in the middle of Plan 412 if the intention wasn’t to provide access to a shared beach area? A: Even in areas of private land, it is common for road accesses to be provided at to the edge of a lake or river. Q: What time does the party start on Friday night (and lets bury the signs while we’re there!) A: It is strongly recommended that appropriate adult behaviour prevails here. If it is your intention to proceed with legal action to obtain rights to the beach, you probably want to demonstrate that you are respectful stewards of the community. Vandalism and agression are not the way to do this. Q: Waterfront is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, not just for a few selfish

cillor El-Chantiry’s office to voice our opinions in hopes that this decision is reversed? I have no authority to reverse the ownership of land. Q: If ownership ends at the waterline, can beachgoers be there so long as the waterline always remains between them and the shore? A: The majority of residents and property owners in the Constance Bay area are very aware that the law is different in the water than it is out of the water.

Even this side of the Constance Bay beach, facing the city from BIshop Davis Drive, has a private strip behind backyards. It, too, has private property signs posted. However, the side looking toward the Gatineau Hills will be the topic of discussion at Saturday’s meeting. people. Can Councillor El-Chantiry do anything to turn this ridiculous decision around? Again, I emphasise that this is not a decision or a change that the City of Ottawa has facilitated. As such, it is not something the City can turn around or change. Q: First it’s Lane Street. So does that

mean the rest of the shoreline is next? A: Unless other plans in Constance Bay are the same as Plan 412, with the wording “All lots fronting on river extend to the shore line” this will not be the case. Q: Should we contact Coun-

SATURDAY MEETING As most Constance Bay residents are now aware the question of property ownership in Plan 412 has been a topic of discussion in the community lately. A meeting has been organized by the CBBCA to discuss this issue and will be held on May 29 @ 1 PM at the Constance Bay and Buckhams Bay Community Center, 262 Len Purcell in Constance Bay. Please plan to attend.

No time to lose forming BIA: proponents CARP – If businesses along the Carp Road corridor want to form a business improvement area (BIA), they better do it fast before City Hall switches to summer hours and the election hits in October. That was the message proponents brought to some 30 stakeholders at a May 20 meeting held at Irish Hills Golf and Country Club. Chris Cope is the economic development officer at the municipality. He was hoping for a better turnout but said the chances look “pretty good” of it becoming a reality, based on the people he has talked to so far.

Cope said his role was not to convince business leaders to form a BIA, which is a non-profit association of property owners and business tenants who promote and improve business opportunities in their area. He instead helps with the process of forming, including the creation of a steering committee and the introduction of two bylaws for council to consider. “A BIA is you, not us,” he said. “We don’t want to jam a BIA down anyone’s throat.” To create the BIA, one-third of property owners – based on assessment – would have to object; or one-third of eligible voters – property owners and tenants – would have to disagree.

Garry Bastien

As for costs to business people, it all depends on what the BIA wants to accomplish. “We the people who are involved decide what they want to do,” said Roddy Bolivar, who is leading the campaign. “They are reaching into their own pocket, but they know the value.” A BIA decides which projects require funding, with the city assessing a special levy to all property owners proportional to the assessed value of individual properties. Bolivar said the property value in the Carp Road corridor, from March to , roads, is about $75 million.

EDITORIAL

Vote for a Carp Road BIA We don’t know of a Business Improvement Area (BIA) in Ontario that has failed to prove worthy of its members fees. That makes a strong case for why businesses along the Carp Road corridor should form one of their own. Our page three story this week, ‘No time to lose forming BIA: proponents,’ admittedly makes the case for having one. That is in large part because no one at the meeting stated a counter argument. The closest thing to a concern surrounds the issue of where to set the levy. The suggestion at this point is to have, say, a property valued at $300,000 pay a levy of $300 per year. It seems a solid investment when you consider the attention other BIAs are getting at city hall, and the achievements that have followed. The only other question is why Carp Road businesses don’t simply join the existing Carp village BIA, considering the power of speaking with a ‘united voice’ is one of the main points proponents name. The reason has to do with geography. The gap between the village and March Road is too great and the issues they face differ. It is our understanding those on the village BIA are all in favour of Carp Road forming its own. One person involved in both is Greg Leblanc. He, along with Roddy Bolivar, John Phillips and Erwin Schulz among others deserve a tip of the hat for volunteering their time to try and bring about this worthwhile initiative. A number of issues with how the city treats businesses along the corridor were raised at the May 20 meeting. There is no better way to solve those issues than by forming a BIA.

This Spring, 125 Kindergarten students from Stonecrest Elementary were invited to tour the Carp Fire Station. Headed up by Chief Chris Burke, back left, 15 additional firefighters West Carleton and Kanata, volunteered from their time to present four exciting workshops, ranging from getting out of your house safely to tearing apart vehicles with the jaws of life! The teachers (Mme Wilson, Ms. Kirby, Ms. Davies, Mrs. Sonnenburg, and Mrs. Ellis) and the children were thoroughly impressed with the quality and care that Burke and his team put into organizing such a fantastic day.

All newspapers in running a letters to the editor section are very careful not to run letters that are personal attacks, something that Jim McKenzie accuses me of although it would appear he has mistaken criticism with a personal attack. It’s the idea or opinion that is called into question, not the individual. The letters section is also a forum where people are invited to share their views and opinions on a particular topic, editorial or a previous letter. If you write controversial and questionable opinions you may indeed be called on it. If you do not wish to be criticized, then you would be advised not to write at all, or be very sure of your facts. Letter writers do not necessarily look for feedback, nor do they ever assume that if no one comments on your letter, people must be in agreement. McKenzie mentions in what can only be described as a full page ad to himself in this week’s Review, that he uses the Internet. I suggest he use that medium to

discover what writing a letter to the editor means, as his latest effort is virtually incomprehensible. While on the Internet he should also seek out the causes of the Rwandan massacre, stating as he did that the Rwandan massacre was due to overpopulation. It’s both disgusting and pitiful that someone would air such an opinion. It was hard to get a handle on what McKenzie was trying to say in his rambling, but somehow dairy farmers entered into the mix. In the eyes of McKenzie dairy farmers who have a generator are exhibiting the hallmarks of good business and sound planning. I would suggest that if you have dairy cattle and need power to milk them, a generator or the ability to borrow or share one is common sense, without it you may be in for a world of problems. In the same sort of scatological approach that was the hallmark of whatever this was that he wrote McKenzie somehow sees himself in the same category as Rachel Carson. Carson has long been considered the patron saint of the environmental movement after her book Silent Spring came out. The book spawned the ban-

ning of DDT, which in turn has caused millions of Third World people to die from malaria, and they are still dying. The book itself has now been seen as largely overstated and in many cases factually incorrect. Not the role model that I would choose, but to each their own. The monster however has been unleashed and now we are going to get a lecture on our food, or at least that’s what he promised. The letters page I’m afraid is about to hijacked by a mishmash of Green Party, Carleton Landowners antigovernment, anti business rhetoric. Something we’ve all heard before. However, I must confess I am interested to hear McKenzie explain how the food system is affecting our health. We are all living longer now than ever before, the average life expectancy is over 80. We are also healthier later into life than ever before. If this is what our food system is doing to us than I can only say let’s have more of the same. Jeff Spooner Kinburn

Horse in distress response applauded To the editor: I want to give a big Shout Out to the Arnprior Humane Society for their quick response to an old horse in distress east of Pakenham

on Thursday the 13. This horse was down in a paddock without any water and has been observed in very thin condition and obviously not well loved. He needed help and Val-

erie Hemphill, an investigator with the SPCA, responded immediately. Bless those that love and help the animals. They don’t seem to be getting their deserved cred-

it these days. Kudos all in the Humane Society. Lesley Sibbitt Carleton Place

West Carleton crash claims teen’s life KATIE MULLIGAN, JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com PAKENHAM - In the wake of a collision that killed an 18-year-old Arnprior teenager May 20, police are reminding drivers not to over-react if their vehicle wanders off the paved roadway. Katrina ‘Kay’ Lyman was killed when her car hit a pickup truck on a curve on County Road 29, near Galetta Side Road, between Pakenham and Arnprior about 1 p.m. Lyman, who was alone in her Nissan, died on scene, said Ottawa Police Service Const. Alain Boucher, while the three occupants of the truck were taken to hospital. The driver, a 27-year-old man, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries. His passengers, a 26-yearold woman and a 53-year-old man, suffered less serious injuries.

KATRINA ‘KAY’ LYMAN Facebook photo

Const. Boucher said the sedan was headed southbound when it appears the driver left the roadway onto the shoulder of the road. “The driver overcorrected and ended up in the northbound lane where the truck was,” said Boucher. Ottawa Police Services spokesman Const. J.P. Vincelette said Lyman probably made a quarter-wheel turn to get back on the road instead of the recommended one-eighth turn. “We’ve all done it (left the road),” he said, adding the

key is to either ease back onto the paved roadway or slowly get off the road altogether. Vincelette said speculation that Lyman might have been distracted from her driving because she was texting on a cell phone has not been confirmed. He said the investigation is continuing and will likely include checking phone records to see if Lyman was on the phone when the collision occurred. “We shouldn’t be jumping to conclusions,” he said. She also could have reacted to the oncoming pickup, as they met on a long curve that has had its share of crashes in the past. Regardless of the findings, “it won’t bring her back,” he said. “It was a terrible loss. Our sympathy and our hearts go out to her family and friends.” Lyman was reportedly on her way to work at the Almonte Rexall Pharma Plus drug store when the

crash happened between the intersections of the Galetta Side and Shaw roads. By 4:30 p.m. a Facebook memorial had been started and quickly gained many entries. Among the typical comments were: “You’re such a sweet girl and touched so many lives” and “You were full of joy, life and ambitions for yourself. You’ll never be forgotten.” MEMORIAL MONDAY Lyman is survived by her parents Alvin and Samantha Lyman, brothers Ross of Calabogie and Cody of Arnprior, and sisters Angel of Perth and Rachael of Oshawa. Katrina grew up in Perth, moving to Arnprior with her family after Grade 9. A service in her memory was held Monday at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church. In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations in Katrina’s memory be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Young men honoured for actions at house fire

Canadian Environment Week is about grassroots action to help preserve, protect, and restore our environment. This annual event takes place this year from May 30 to June 5. The United Nations declared 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity, and accordingly, the Canadian Environment Week theme this year is Embracing Life on Earth. Protecting Canada’s natural environment reaps a world of benefits for Canadians, many of which are essential for our very survival! Oxygen, rain and the pollination of flowers are just a few products of biodiversity that we often take for granted.

It is important to remember that every effort to help the environment counts, big or small. This Canadian Environment Week, start collecting organic waste for composting. Use a mug for your morning coffee instead of a disposable cup. We all can make a difference by taking small steps like these as part of our daily lives to protect and preserve the life support systems we rely on everyday. Our lives are inextricably linked with biodiversity. We must protect it at all costs. So get informed, get involved and act now! You can make a difference. Visit canadianenvironmentweek.ca for more ways how!

ran around the house knocking on the doors and windows to alert anyone inside. When no one responded to their calls, both Sugarman and Jacob entered the burning house through the garage to see if they could find anyone inside. They were able to get to the main level and did not see anybody – they had to retreat and did so but grabbed a set of truck keys on their way out – they decided to move the truck out of the driveway so it would not catch on fire. It was later determined that no one was in the house at the time of the fire and as a result, there were no injuries. For their actions that evening, Blair Aiken and Jacob Sugarman are awarded the Certificate of Merit. It is presented to a member of the public for “outstanding service in the community performed in assistance to the Submitted photo Police Service.” Blair Aiken and Jacob Sugarman are recognized by Ottawa Police Service for their daring rescue at a house fire in Dunrobin Shore on April 11, 2009.

May 27 2010 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

Two young men were honoured at a gala event on May 18 for their quick reaction and selfless courage. Ottawa Police Chief Vern White and the Ottawa Police Services Board, including Chairman Eli El-Chantiry, hosted the 2010 Community/Police Awards Ceremony. The award recipients were nominated by a police officer. On the afternoon of April 11, 2009, Blair Aiken and Jacob Sugarman were driving down Torwood Drive when they noticed smoke coming from one of the homes. They did not observe any emergency vehicles on route so they both went to the house to see if they could assist. When they got to the house they did a search of the property, noticing two vehicles in the driveway – at this time they could not tell if anyone was inside the house. Both Aiken and Sugarman

Shore work requires permits: MNR The Pembroke District Office of the Ministry of Natural Resources is reminding landowners work permits are required before working in the water or on shore lands. While some boathouses or floating docks may not require a work permit, authorization in the form of a land use permit or lease may be required from the ministry if they occupy Crown lake bed. They may also need to be reviewed by Transport

Canada for potential impact on navigation. Among other activities, work permits are required to fill or dredge shore lands; create a boat slip, boating channel or swimming area; install a water line; remove rocks and boulders from shore lands or the bottom of a lake or stream; construct a dock or boathouse in the water and remove aquatic vegetation.

Wren. These tiny brown and tan birds bear short tails that are often cocked above their backs. They might have short tails, but their voices are big. Their dry “cut-cut-cuttttttttttttttttt” trills rise from the cattails at all hours of the day and night. Marsh Wrens, like Red-winged Blackbirds, are polygynous birds. That means that the males have multiple mates. There is much speculation as to what factors determine how many females a male will attract into his harem. The size and quality of his song repertoire, which may contain 200 or more variations, has been cited as one. The quality of the male’s territory has been offered as another. A third and more intriguing theory involves the offering of “gifts.” Those items are round nests that the males build through

their territories. Unlike a true nest, a ball-like structure containing an entry hole in the side, these nests have no entrance and never hold eggs. For that reason they are called “dummy nests.” There has been correlation found between the number of dummy nests that males build and the number of females they attract. Perhaps dummy nests tell the female that a territory is safe and that food is plentiful, for in order to build a lot of nests the male must have plenty of safe leisure time. Recently I watched males building their dummy nests. They plucked pieces of old submerged cattail leaves from the water. Undoubtedly wet, limp leaves are easier to weave into ball-like shapes than are dry leaves. As they built their gifts, the males sang frequently, likely trying to attract the attention of mateshopping females. It makes sense that male Marsh Wrens would advertise their building skills. After all, they are not dummies! Recent sightings include a Northern Cardinal nest (Joanne Bayford) and a young Black Bear in Galetta (Judy Budau).

Our area is rich with habitats. Hardwood forests that flame with autumnal colour blanket the hills. Towering pines adorn sandy shores and dark cedar swamps embrace sluggish streams. Ponds and lakes punctuate the forests and fields, and rivers and creeks meander through the landscape. Local rivers such as the Mississippi and Ottawa harbour a particularly fascinating habitat along their shores. That habitat consists of towering plants whose roots form a floating platform on which other plants grow. Cattails and the marshes they form harbour some of the more unusual animals in our region. While Red-winged Blackbirds are easily seen and heard, many marsh inhabitants are encountered mainly by voice. Odd “kid-ik, kidik, kid-ik” calls reveal the presence of Virginia Rails whose bodies are laterally compressed for slipping between cattail stalks; “thin as a rail” bears testament to this shape. Even stranger are the grunts and nasal laughs of Common Moorhens whose long toes, like those of rails, allow them to walk across a world that is part water, part floating plant. One of my favourite marsh inhabitants is the Marsh

The dry, hot spring is likely to increase bear problems in the Ottawa Valley, says the Ministry of Natural Resources. The MNR is urging people to take steps to minimize contact with bear, which most frequently happens when the animal’s natural foods are scarce. If this happens, black bears will search for other food sources, such as garbage and bird feed, which can attract bears to populated areas. “With the current dry conditions we are anticipating a busy bear season,” says the MNR. The ministry stresses that at this time of year it’s important to take simple precautions to help prevent attracting black bears to populated areas. To minimize the chances of attracting black bears: • store garbage in waste containers with tightfitting lids; • take out garbage only on the morning of pick-up; • put away bird feeders. Seed, suet and nectar put out for birds also attract bears; • clean outdoor grills after each use, including the grease trap underneath. Bears will be drawn

Pakenham is getting ready to host the fourth annual Fiddle & Stepdance Competition June 18-19 at the Stewart Community Centre. Organizers and competitors alike are gearing up for another successful event that will more than double the population of this Ottawa Valley village for the summer solstice weekend. This year, the Pakenham Fiddle & Stepdance Association along with Thomas Cavanagh Construction, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and other sponsors, as well as 80 community volunteers will provide over 200 fiddlers and stepdancers with a competition many rated as the best they had ever experienced. Proceeds from the event go entirely towards this non-profit organization’s expenses, not least of which is prize money, with over $15,000 in cash and trophies awarded each year. Participants ranging in age from five to 84 come from as far away as British Columbia as Pakenham will once again showcase its historic village, friendly residents and lively Ottawa Valley traditions. Facebook lists over 600 members in the fiddle and stepdance group from this region, so in addition to Ottawa and Pembroke, Pakenham provides a third vital venue for locals and visitors to test their talent accompanied by pianist Jake Charron and fiddler Kyle Felhaver. Judges include Brian Hebert, a Country Music Hall of Fame nominee; Bruce Wilson, recipient of the Canadian Grand Masters’ Life Time Achievement Award; as well as Ian Hamilton, Cindy Dagenais and Rhodina Turner. Riverside camping is available at the Fiddle Park from June 17-19 and a community lasagna dinner will be hosted by the Pakenham United Church Saturday, June 19 from 4 to 6:45 p.m. Back by popular demand, The Kettle Boys will reconnect young and old with Ottawa Valley toys, tools and tales in the Kids’ Tent, and, of course, lots of music and steps will spill over into afterhours sessions. Pre-registration fee for all fiddle and Stepdance categories is $7 ($8 at the door). Participants can mail registration forms and cheques to: Pakenham Fiddle & Stepdance, Box 135, Pakenham, ON K0A 2X0. Spectator tickets are available at Nicholson’s (Pakenham), Baker Bob’s (Almonte), Celtic Corner (Almonte) and Mill Music (Renfrew) for $10 per show or $25 for a weekend pass.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - May 27 2010

BIA would address lingering issues along Carp Road corridor Continued from page 3 If the BIA decided on an annual budget of $75,000, an average special levy would be .001 of assessed value. That would mean a property with an assessed value of $300,000 would pay a BIA levy of $300, with property owners typically passing the levy to tenants. The meeting heard a number of complaints when dealing with the city. They include: • inability to hook up to municipal water and sewer lines; • inadequate drainage: • a focus at city hall on developing industry in parts of the city other than the far west; • zoning changes that catch property owners off guard; • lack of public transit;

Many of these issues can be addressed by speaking with a unified voice, said John Phillips. If a BIA is formed, the water and sewage issue would likely be addressed, for instance. “The BIA would be one voice that we could use to speak to the city,” Phillips said. “It’s a local voice, an extension of the councillor’s office.” West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said it isn’t up to him whether business leaders believe they can afford to pay for a BIA or not. However, he did say the Preston Street BIA is at council chambers regularly and he expects to see major improvements in that part of town next year. “I’m not here to sell anything, but the questions tonight show a need for it,” El-Chantiry said.

“You wait and see Preston next year.” Bolivar said there is much talk about getting jobs and business located in the east end, but little is said about Carp Road. He handed out a fact sheet showing the influence of the area: • number of businesses – 230; • number of jobs – 2,000; • city taxes collected $900,000; • total rural industrial land west of the Rideau River – 71 per cent in Carp Road. It was also mentioned that a Carp Road BIA would hire a staff member to explain the HST and other business-related issues. Members would be on hand to lend advice for things like navigating bureaucracies when

building at a property with a historic designation, as was offered up but Cheshire Cat owner Dustin Therrien. Jonathan Kardash was part of the Westboro BIA, which convinced city hall to make minor changes during a period of infrastructure renewal that would cause fewer inconveniences to customers. He was adamant OC Transpo is needed for Carp Road. “That’s a real, live, huge issue,” he said. He was told it was an issue that could be added to the list, though El-Chantiry indicated that it would be costprohibitive. Another stakeholder asked what the purpose is of a BIA if businesses can’t even win water and sewage from the city. “Let’s work together to get

services,” Bolivar said, who added the current incarnation of the BIA – the West Ottawa Economic Development Association – has dealt with the city on the new sign bylaw and the two per cent storm water tax. Problem is, proponents only have until the beginning of summer to get the vote out. A 60-day period for objection is required. If the group aims to have council consider their proposal at the July 14 meeting, it has to pound the pavement in June. Otherwise it won’t come up again until closer to election time. “It may be the new council that does it in December,” Cope said. For more information contact Bolivar at 613-314-7597 or email roddy@woeda.ca.

High school theatre class presents Guys and Dolls June 2, 3 and 4 BEN LOUCKS WCSS student DUNROBIN - Every two years, West Carleton Secondary School gets into the thick of things by producing an extravagant musical masterpiece. Miss Alison Hauch and Mr. Matt Gagnier take charge to choreograph and direct an entire Broadway-type musical featuring West Carleton students. They push and shove and work their hands to the bone to ensure that every-

thing comes out rosy. This year, Hauch, Gagnier and the Musical Theatre Class of 2010 are putting on an old Broadway classic Guys and Dolls. Every day for the past 15 weeks, the class has been working tirelessly to prepare themselves for their big moment on-stage. Sets have been made, props have been bought, scenes have been edited, (then removed, then edited and then reinserted) and everything is just about ready to go. Each and every of the 26 students

have contributed not only to the show itself, but also by painting backdrops and constructing scenery and working on scene after scene after scene until finally the show-runners are appeased. The students haven’t been alone in their efforts, however. Several students recommended by Miss Sarah Heagle (Visual Arts) have toiled to perfect the New York-style backdrops that will be seen throughout the show. As well, a loyal technical crew has been present for nearly every after-school rehearsal, mak-

ing an incredible effort to ensure that, among other things, the stage does not catch on fire.

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption.

# 3696 Thumper and Buttercup # 3697 Thumper and Buttercup, two great cats, were brought to the shelter to find a new home after a family member developed severe allergies. Thumper is a large, 11-yearold neutered and declawed male. Buttercup is a short-haired, six-year-old, spayed female. They have been companions for the past four years, and the shelter would like to see them adopted together and would be willing to reduce the adoption fee for the right home. They are affectionate, friendly cats who love attention. They are both very clean and quiet. Thumper and Buttercup would be best suited in a quiet home where they will be kept as strictly indoor cats. This adorable pair came from a home where they were loved very much so Thumper and Buttercup are scared, confused and missing their family. Please consider taking them out of the shelter and into your heart and home.

Drug reform tough to swallow: pharmacists Pharmacists and lab assistants took to the streets May 14 to show just how angry they are with McGuinty’s proposed drug reform. The reform, which was introduced to legislation on May 3, will cut generic drug prices in half while eliminating the benefits pharmacists receive for selling generic brands. In turn, the provincial government promises to pay the pharmacists fair compensation, but the pharmacists don’t view it that way. “They don’t pay us fair compensation for our services,” said Sam Fleming, pharmacist and owner of Bayshore Pharmasave. Over 500,000 signatures have been collected across Ontario to try to get the reform tossed out of legislature. The fact that pharmacists are getting benefits from drug companies isn’t new. According to Fleming, the provincial government has known for years that the pharmacists were receiving benefits from generic drug companies but didn’t complain. “The government said ‘get it where you can’ and now they’re taking it away,” he said. Pharmacists are concerned that the proposed bill will lead to many cutbacks in service and in some cases pharmacies closing down – especially those independently owned. Protester Jeanine Maciver, operations coordinator of Pharmasave Ontario, said that the government will be surprised at the outcome of the reform. “I don’t think they realize how far this is going to reach,” she said. “It will lead to job loss at the store level and beyond.” “If they took (the benefits) back but paid us fair wages, everyone would be happy,” Carol Fleming, local pharmacist said. But the bottom line is that many pharmacists don’t believe they’re getting fair wages. Fleming said that the government is taking away $100,000

in rebates – which works out to $3.33 per prescription – and in turn is giving the pharmacist $1 on every cash paying client. Most of the rebate goes to client discounts Fleming said. Pharmacist Karen Kemp said that many pharmacies end up paying for part of the difference out of their own pockets. “Many pharmacists have given out medication on compassionate grounds to patients that simply can’t afford their prescription and that’s to get them through a difficult time,” she said. The proposed bill is designed to put patients first but according to Kemp that might not be the case. “The government has a cap and that’s what’s affecting the pharmacies. Where we’re situated there’s a lot of patients on dialysis – at the Riverside Hospital – and their medications are extremely expensive. We need to stock them but then the government has a cap,” she said. “Sometimes it costs so much you almost have to get a loan to stock these medications and then you’re only allowed to make a certain amount. So it’s difficult for independent pharmacies to stock expensive medications with these cuts.” However, Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli says it’s not the province but the generic drug companies that are driving up the cost of medications. “There are cancer drugs developed but they haven’t been made available because they’re too expensive.” The bill is slated come into affect this fall. Rural pharmacies will be allowed to transition into the reform over a period of three years.

JUSTICE (AND EDUCATION) FOR ALL


WEST CARLETON REVIEW - May 27 2010

Baby bear spotted on Carp Road OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 46 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of May 14 to 20. A complainant called 911 at around 8 p.m. May 17, after he spotted a bear cub walking around the 417 off ramp at Carp Road and became concerned that mama bear was close at hand. The bear cub was located by police and scared back into the bush after MNR deemed it unnecessary to attend. According to MNR, if baby bear is bigger than a dog, then it means that there isn’t a mommy bear around and he is on his own. With a good wail of the police siren, baby bear was sent running back into the bush. MOON OVER THE BAY A 33-year-old man was cautioned for his indecent act after he mooned his neighbor over an ongoing dispute. Whether it was a half or full moon that shone over Constance Bay last Sunday, the lack of respect that was demonstrated through this act underlines the existence of a deep-seated problem between the two neighbors As cracks develop in the thin facade of neighbor civility, anger and frustration rises to the surface and morphs into many different forms of expression such as the moon. SUSPENSION A driver was stopped by a patrol officer for speeding on Old Carp Road at about 6 p.m. on May 16. On speaking to the driver, the officer detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. When asked the question of how much alcohol was consumed, the driver stated “a couple of beer.” Because of the officer’s suspicion of alcohol consumption, the driver was given a roadside screening test to which he registered a ‘warn’ and was subsequently issued a three-day driver’s license suspension. In addition to losing his driver’s license for three days, the driver will also have to deal with the speeding fine, the license reinstatement fees and a possible increase in his insurance premiums. Does this sound like a costly mistake? DIRT BIKE RECOVERED A Suzuki dirt bike that

of her Nissan and skidded into an oncoming pickup truck. As the driver rounded a curve on Ottawa Road 29 and touched the gravel shoulder, she over-corrected her steering in an attempt to get her car back onto the roadway and lost control. The driver and passenger of the pickup truck were transported to hospital with nonlife threatening injuries.

CONST. PETER JEON was reported stolen from a home on Manion Corners several weeks ago was located and recovered from a home on Corkery Road. Police are investigating this and other theft incidents with a known offender. The bike was returned to its rightful owner. PROACTIVE POLICING On May 20, between midnight and 1:30 a.m., police stopped 20 vehicles at the intersection of Carp Road and Donald B Munro Drive, as part of a patrol initiated RIDE program.

May 20 Galetta Side Road, West Carleton: Shortly before 3:30 p.m. on May 20, police were dispatched to Galetta Side Road and Ottawa Road 29 for a fatal accident call.

Jack MacLaren signs 600 party memberships JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com There’s competition for the Progressive Conservative nomination for the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding for the next provincial election. The riding is currently held by longtime Conservative MPP Norm Sterling who was first elected to the provincial legislature in 1977. However, this time around, he is going to have to fight for the riding’s nomination as he is being challenged for it by Jack MacLaren of MacLaren’s Landing in West Carleton. Speaking at the May 20 annual general meeting of the Carleton Landowners Association of which he is a past president, MacLaren said that he was stepping down from his current position as president of the Ontario Landowners Association to

MacLaren said that his team has now sold about 600 party memberships, which he figures should be enough to win the nomination. No date has yet been announced for the nomination meeting. The election will be held in October 2011. “We have nothing against Norm (Sterling) except I just want his job,” MacLaren said, adding that he had told Sterling of his intentions last February in which he described as a conversation which turned it to be fairly short in duration.

Skinny love and the Farmer’s birthday Imagine you have a tummy ache. You are doubled over, and it hurts to move. About a week after the lambs were let out to the pasture, I noticed one little lamb that was hunched over like this. She couldn’t seem to find her mother, and just spent the day following one honorary mama after another, stealing milk. This was exhausting and she wasn’t taking in the calories to support her activities. In the evening, she would drag herself back up to the barn and collapse in the corner. One morning, I found this lamb in the barn by herself, after everyone else had headed out to the field. She didn’t have the energy to move. “Stay right there, Skinny Love,” I told her, and went back to the house to mix up a bottle of milk replacer. When I returned, she was right where I had left her. “Ba-aah” she sang, as if to say, “I’m still here.” But as I approached,

she jumped up, bolted out the door and took off toward the pasture. I had to chase and tackle her. That first time, I think I got about 75 mls into her. I got in the habit of sneaking out early in the morning to catch Diana Fisher her before she left the barn. In the evenings I waited ’til the

THE ACCIDENTAL FARMWIFE

sheep all came in for shelter, and snuck up behind her. Day by day she became stronger. After about the third day and sixth supplementary feeding, her back straightened out. She was no longer hunched over with hunger. “Come on skinny love, just last a year,” I sang, and she turned to look at me. And took a tentative step toward me. Reeeached out her neck and sniffed the end of the bottle. And then bolted. I leaped and tackled her. She took 300 mls. I suppose I could grab her, lock her up in a stall and train her on the self-feeding bottle. But I want her to be out on the field like all the others, eating the fresh grass shoots and lying in the warm spring sun. The hobbledy-horse still comes running over to me whenever she sees the bottle, so I usually let her finish it off. This is the time of year when the

smell of blossoms is hanging in the air, even if you can’t see the flowers. I was on walkabout around the pasture the other day, collecting balls of fluff, wool tags and discarded lamb tails, and the scent of honeysuckle, apple blossom and lilac was heavy on the breeze. Unlike most farmsteads, we don’t have many flowering trees. I think we should plant some. This is also the time of year when I am trying to come up with an original way to celebrate the Farmer’s birthday. One year I took him to see kd lang at the NAC. She was amazing. Last year I think I took him to Blue Rodeo. This year, I’m stumped. I have a few ideas but nothing concrete yet. The only thing I know for sure is that he needs a new manure pitchfork. That would make him happy. So I’ll get one of those at TSC (The Sexy Cowboy store) and put a bow on it.

Jim Watson a no-show at mayoral debate JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com There was a notable absence during the all-candidates mayoral debate held at the Eva James Memorial Community Centre in Bridlewood on Monday, May 17. Dubbed the front-runner in the campaign by some observers, Jim Watson was a no-show. The six candidates who did attend, criticized his absence. Charlie Taylor, a Carleton journalism student, asked the other mayoral hopefuls to join him in writing a letter to Watson asking him to attend all future all-candidates debates. Watson said he wasn’t attending because he had agreed to go to a Polish community event; but he also said he didn’t think it was right to hold an all-candidates meeting before registration closes on Sept. 10. If Watson waits until then to attend debates that leaves only 30 working days, said mayoral candidate and Bay Coun. Alex Cullen. “This has been called a onehorse race,” said Taylor. “And that horse didn’t bother to show up tonight.” Many topics were broached during the debate, which was hosted by the Bridlewood Community Association, but the dominant two were transit and taxation. The issue of light rail and the proposed downtown tunnel were front and centre. “Light rail has to die,” said candidate Stan Pioro, who is against raising taxes and spending millions on what he calls non-essential projects. “The huge mega projects have to be stopped.” Mayoral hopeful Mike Magu-

ire, who was the chief policy analyst for candidate Terry Kilrea in 2006, said he thinks “light rail is an inappropriate expenditure.” Maguire proposed an alternative modelled on the GO Train in Toronto that would use existing rail. Cullen attacked Watson for his stance on light rail. “The biggest issue is to provide more services,” he said. “It’s the beginning of a larger plan for light rail. But Mr. Watson suggests to drop the downtown tunnel.”

Trust the experts at

Candidate Sean Ryan said he had a “watershed moment” during the bus strike and wants to fix the transit problem, which includes adding light-rail transit. “It would take buses off the road downtown and I would push them out here (to the suburbs),” he said. “Light rail is one of those projects that will save money,” said Taylor, who added he would like to see OC Transpo privatized, as well as see employees’ salaries cut.

DEALERSHIP NAME

TAXES Cullen said its “impossible” to balance the budget without increasing taxes or cutting services. “Your taxes pay for services,” he said. Taylor agreed, saying Mayor Larry O’Brien’s slogan in the last election of “zero means zero” taught residents that a tax freeze is not possible, and instead his goal is to “keep the tax increase below inflation.” However, Pioro disagreed, saying, “anyone who says tax

who know your Ford best.

A LIST

increases are inevitable is insane and isn’t trying hard enough. We need a rollback; it has to be like Wal-Mart – we have to start cutting taxes.” Candidate Jane Scharf said an overhaul of city hall is needed. “I think if we get the old boys’ hands out of the cookie jar we’d have more resources available,” she said. “We should be demanding a cost-benefit analysis.” Over 70 people attended the all-candidates meeting.

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com CARP – When Waste Management announced last month its intention to establish a second landfill next to the current one on Carp Road, reaction was as swift and harsh as it was the first two times the proposal was raised. But the company’s fortunes may be turning, if only somewhat. Its promise to contribute renewable energy to the electricity grid is paying off. And it has won the overt support of a lone – but influential – politician and implicit support from others. Up to 6,000 homes in Ottawa are being powered by the Carp landfill, renamed the West Carleton Environmental Centre, through six megawatts of electricity. “This facility will benefit the local environment and economy because it will help offset the need for non-renewable resources such as coal, natural gas and oil,” said site manager Ross Wallace in a news release. Gases are formed as waste breaks down in a landfill, and is usually burnt off rather than captured and used as a clean energy source. Extraction wells in the landfill produce and recover the gas, then transport it to a compressor facility. Once there, moisture is removed then delivered to fuel an engine which in turn drives a generator to produce electricity. The generator’s transformer has the same voltage of electricity as the local electrical utility’s distribution system. The real payoff for Waste Management? It will earn 11 cents per kilowatt hour from Ottawa Power Generation; or more than $5 million per year. In the end, what really matters to the McGuinty Liberal government is that a little less coal is being burned. But opposition Progressive Conservative MPP Norm Sterling is far from in agreement. Two days after Waste Management’s April 12 announcement, he signalled in a press release his intention to fight the expansion. “It was four years ago this month I joined more than 300 residents of Stittsville at a rally to oppose the dump expansion,” said Sterling. “That spring I also introduced petitions opposing the expansion signed by almost

10,000 people. I will be drafting a new petition and working with the Stop the Dump group again to make sure the landfill is closed for good.” While he doesn’t oppose the plan for a recycling facility at the location, Sterling nevertheless wants the province to honour a Ministry of Environment permit which ends this year and close the landfill, not triple its size and maintain its lifespan another 25 years. If the plan – which would accept primarily industrial, commercial and institutional waste (ICI) as opposed to household waste – is to go ahead mayoral candidate and city councillor Alex Cullen would like to see businesses forced to contribute their organic waste. However, he concedes it is a decision for the province. The idea of increasing ICI diversion rates sits well with Liberal MPP Bob Chiarelli and mayoral frontrunner Jim Watson. Observers say the Carp Road site is ideal for the Orgaworld-like process of accepting green bins – albeit from nonresidential contributors; many prefer it to trucking waste to New York. Despite some left-leaning politicians signalling public support for Waste Management’s plan, it remains highly unpopular among local councillors such as Stittsville’s Shad Qadri. He told the Review’s sister paper The Stittsville News that the “archaic process of burying waste” ought to be displaced with newer technologies such as high temperature incineration or gasification. Stittsville News reporter John Curry has followed the issue for many years. He said Qadri may have bought into the new technologies while on recent a fact finding trip to Sweden. Curry also said while the breadth of opposition in the community doesn’t appear as great this time around, it nevertheless would be a “rough ride locally in the October municipal election” for Qadri to take anything but a loud and strong stance against the company. “Another candidate would run against him on a platform opposing (Waste Management’s plan). He’d lose a lot of votes if he didn’t oppose it,” Curry said. “So it is not surprising that councillor Qadri quickly voiced his opposition to the proposal, although as I say, he has see

the Swedish example and has undoubtedly been influenced by it. However, when told West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry wrote a column in this newspaper’s May 13 issue essentially endorsing more ICI for the Carp Road facility, Curry was a little surprised. “It does seem unusual, but politically they are not in the same boat,” Curry said, alluding to the issue of landfill stink which used to waft in the direction of Stittsville, not Carp. He

added that so long as landfills are the cheapest way of disposing of garbage, they will remain acceptable to the majority of voters. As for El-Chantiry, he challenges opponents to the plan to offer one of their own. “It’s very, very important for everyone not to say yes or no, but to find a solution,” he said, adding that declaring a war on landfills as Mayor Larry O’Brien did, without following up with any proposals, isn’t helpful. He also ques-

tions Sterling’s track record on the issue, pointing to the MPP’s time in government when he granted the last expansion. When asked if going against the wishes of the majority of constituents in counter to democratic ideals, El-Chantiry said that is why people should participate in the process by attending Waste Management-sponsored workshops.

About 400 students from Stonecrest participated in the annual track and field day. However, as Tyler, centre bottom, and a group of girls show - many enjoyed a picnic at the same time.

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com VYDON ACRES - Although between 8,000 and 10,000 people visit Morris Island Conservation Area each year, the Ottawa River refuge near Fitzroy Harbour remains relatively unknown, according to Suzanne McFarlane. The Mississippi Valley Conservation community relations co-ordinator said the hope is to get more people to experience the idyllic charms of the 47-hectare site. “It’s an oasis within the City of Ottawa,” McFarlane said. “It’s an inexpensive day trip close to the city where you can hike or canoe or even fish.” Last Saturday morning, McFarlane and Morris Island supporters gathered for a walk and light lunch to celebrate upgrades to the trail. The blue trail is now fully wheelchair accessible. All new interpretative signs have been added. Lookouts have been improved with new benches and picnic tables. Over the past three years contributions to the project have come from:

New signs, including this one at the entrance of the conservation area, have been introduced to Morris Island. A group met last Saturday to celebrate the project’s success. • Ontario Power Generation $18,600; • City of Ottawa $201,136; • Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority $35,049; • Mississippi Valley Conservation

Foundation $1,279. “The volunteer core and the volunteer support from the neighbourhood is key for us,” McFarlane said. “They have been amazing. This is a really special place.”

More than $256,000 was spent on upgrades to Morris Island, considered a natural jewel near Galetta along the Ottawa River. Suzanne McFarlane is ready to join supporters for a lunch on Saturday, after a walk to observe the infrastructure changes. Above photo, a lone Lady Slipper blows in the wind near Chats Falls.

Arnprior player taken fourth in CHL draft DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com In the lead-up to the 2010 Central Hockey League draft, it didn’t take long for the Carleton Place Canadians to determine the player they would be selecting. When team management interviewed Arnprior player Stephen Baylis, whom they chose with the fourth overall pick May 19, they walked away feeling like they had a keeper. “We saw a lot of character, a lot of good traits that we’re looking for to represent our community and organization,” head coach and owner Jason Clarke said. “He’s the type of kid that we definitely want to surround our self with. “We’re more than pleased with our pick.” It only helped the left winger from Arnprior was an integral

part of his team’s success last season. As a member of the Ottawa Valley Titans minor midget AAAs, Baylis scored 16 points in as many games as his team won their regular season title. Baylis then upped the ante in the postseason, recording 13 points in 10 games as the Titans won the Ontario East Minor Hockey League championship in six games over the Ottawa Jr. 67s. “We see him as a power forward,” Clarke said. “I really think he’s got the capabilities to play for our team next year.” Whether Baylis makes the Canadians next year, he will be a lot closer to the team. His family had been planning to move into town in order to make the commute to work in Perth easier for his mother. “He comes from a great hardworking family; there’s a lot of

good roots there,” Clarke said. “Whenever we’re going to draft kids, we’re looking at their backgrounds. We’re looking for character and he’s a really good kid.” For his part, Baylis knows he has to get stronger to make the jump to the Canadians next season. However, he was soaking in the moment at the Earl Armstrong Arena. “It’s probably the best feeling I’ve ever had,” he said after being drafted. “To go in the first round is a good feeling.” Regardless of where Baylis plays next season, Clarke has no qualms about the selection going forward. “He’s going to be a player,” Clarke said. “He’s going to earn a scholarship out of our league. He’s going to be a big part of our organization.” Among the other Arnprior

Daniel Alfredsson surprises All Saints students during mental health assembly JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com All Saints Catholic High School students brought in the big gun during their campaign to raise awareness about mental health issues: Ottawa Senators captain and West Carleton resident Daniel Alfredsson. Kay-lee Welch, Samantha Paul, Amica Ferras and Blake Scott contacted Alfredsson, who lives in Westwood near Loch March Golf and Country Club, through the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre using a video cleverly titled, “We know who you are, but do you know who we are?” A l f r e d s s o n addressed the grades 10 and 11 students during a school assembly to raise awareness about mental illness on Thursday, May 13. “It’s something you have to discuss,” said Alfredsson. “Too many kids suffer in silence.” Scott said the focus of the campaign was how to help a friend in need. Alfredsson has been labeled as a champion for mental health; his sister, Cecilia, who lives in Sweden, was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder around 10 years ago. Alfredsson told the students when his sister was first diagnosed, he didn’t know how to help her because he didn’t understand what was happening. He joined the Royal Ottawa Founda-

tion for Mental Health’s “you know who I am” campaign, as a way to demonstrate his love for his sister. “Help me and eliminate the stigma,” he said. LIVING WITH OCD Guest speaker Alyse Schacter, has lived with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) since she was 12. “I learned that in order for people to help and support you, you had to share your story,” she told the assembly. Schacter explained what it’s like to grow up with OCD; how she would miss classes because if she stepped on a crack on her way to the classroom, she would have to go back to her locker and start the process again. “I was so stuck doing rituals,” she said. Her parents decided to talk to her class and explain what was happening. Schacter said she was amazed at how many people stepped up to help her out – including getting piggy backs to class so she Photo by Jessica Cunha wouldn’t have to walk on Alyse Schacter and Daniel Alfredsson addressed the Grades 10 and 11 students at All Saints the floor. “Everybody here knows during a school assembly to raise awareness about mental illness on Thursday, May 13. someone,” said Schacter. “It affects everyone in this room.” One in five people will experience some variation of mental illness in their lifetime.

West Carleton School of Performing Arts dancers pay tribute to the late pop icon Michael Jackson in an award-winning routine. They will do a similar dance in Kanata on May 29 and 30.

Dance school’s annual swan song set for this weekend DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com WOODLAWN – Following on the heels of impressive performances at two recent competitions, the West Carleton School of Performing Arts (WCSOPA) will celebrate with its year-end recital in Kanata this weekend. Some 250 young performers train at the Dunrobin and Constance Bay roads facility, led by director Melissa Demers. She said her students dominated recently at the Canada Dance competitions in Ottawa and the Shine event in Peterborough. “The girls did very, very, very well,” Demers said, of the 42 who participated. “They had overall high mark awards and won in most categories. The girls really did amazing with stage presence, energy and umph!” Many of the routines were inspired by ’80s and ’90s pop music, including a Michael Jackson remix, Funky Town, Soul Man by the Blues Brothers and hip hop music. Demers credits the hard work by performers, the dedication of her 13-member staff and the collaborative approach taken by choreographers for WCSOPA’s success. THINK THEY CAN DANCE The 20-year veteran of the dance world

doesn’t see a major jump in interest since the advent of television shows such as So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars. But the interest is broadening. “I think we are definitely getting more kids out,” she said. “We are getting a lot more boys out; a lot more hockey players.” Demers, mother of a son herself, said it helps to have masculine mentors who can communicate dance as a powerful medium. Plus it helps to develop flexibility and “core strength” or the centre of the body where everything explodes from. FINAL PERFORMANCE This year’s swan song will take place Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., at the Ron Maslin Playhouse, Kanata Theatre, 1 Ron Maslin Way. For tickets call the WCSOPA at 613-832-4648 or visit wcsopa.ca. The ninth annual showcase features A Night at the Dwyer Hill Library, featuring both recreational and competitive performers. Written by West Carleton’s Mike Demers, the piece centres around troubled teens killing off community hours at a library. A ghost arrives to teach them lessons. Some routines include homages to jazz, Grease, Bambi, James Bond, and Michael Jackson.

Expect to see a touching tribute to Canadian troops at the WCSOPA recital.
