CARP - An Ottawa area man was killed and another seriously injured in a two-vehicle collision in southwest of Carp in West Carleton Friday evening. It was the third major collision in West Carleton in eight days, with two people killed and three seriously injured. The Ottawa Paramedic Service was called to the crash of a minivan and a pickup truck near where the Vaughan Side

Road connects with Donald B. Munro Drive. Paramedics arrived on scene at 7:36 p.m. and determined two males in their mid-forties were the only people in the vehicles at the time of the collision. Paramedics began triage and treatment, but a 45-year-old, who was trapped in his minivan, was pronounced dead at the scene soon after. The other driver, 44, was flown by air ambulance to the Ottawa trauma centre in critical condition with serious wounds,

including leg and foot injuries. A nearby resident said it’s common to see vehicles entering Donald B. Munro Drive at high speed from the Vaughan Side Road without heeding the stop sign. The city cut down trees and brush at the spot so motorists could better see other vehicles coming around the long curve on Donald B. Munro, but that doesn’t seem to deter some motorists, she added.

Beach privatization, police tactics debated The police have a role to play, but it’s up the community to wash away the distrust and bad feelings generated by the Constance Bay beach debate. Suggestions ranging from implementing a Neighbourhood Watch program and reviving a police auxiliary to implementing stricter parking regulations were suggested at a meeting attended by close to 200 people at the Constance Bay Community Centre Saturday. As for concerns about ‘privatization’ of the beach, Ottawa Police St. Sgt. Rick BaldwinOoms made it clear police will not act against people on beachfront deemed private unless receiving complaints from owners, some of whom said they welcomed law-abiding neighbours. The majority of speakers sympathized with Lane Street residents for the beach party rowdyism they have had to endure but argued it didn’t justify banning people who have been using the beach for years. Jim Carruthers said he while he realized party-goers sometimes caused an “intolerable situation” on the beach, it is “offensive” to tackle the problem through privatizing the beach. “I think it’s a police issue,” he said, adding, “if they apply the (no-drinking) law like they do at provincial campgrounds, it (problem) would be gone.” Several people argued that banning local people from the beach flies in the face of the intent of those who developed the area. The beach shouldn’t be privatized for a small minority but be enjoyed by everyone in the community, they main-

do,” he added, noting the beach committee has been grappling with the issue for the past three years. “So let’s get to work.” The community has to come to a consensus on what they want, said Ward 5 Councillor Eli El-Chantiry, adding police can’t be at the beach at all times and the City of Ottawa can’t determine land ownership. “The police will not solve it … bylaws will not solve it … legal mumbojumbo won’t solve it … the people have to get together to work out how they are going to deal with the issue,” he said. Nancy Butler appealed to the community to pull together to address the problems in a positive way with safety initiatives such as a Neighbourhood Watch program, instead of vigilante action. Marlene Catterall agreed, suggesting the revival of a police auxiliary. One resident appealed to the city to pass a special emergency bylaw for the Bay to allow police to act against rowdies on public property, negating the need for privatization. City solicitor Rick O’Connor said city staff and El-Chantiry are looking into whether noise, parking and burn permit bylaws can be

However, that spirit of sharing didn’t extend to outside the Bay area. “The Constance Bay beach needs to be a community asset, not an Ottawa asset,” said association secretary Bruce McClure. “We don’t want to become a tourist destination.” Some residents claimed the biggest offenders are boaters, many coming from the Quebec side. While it was conceded some of the 10 Plan 412 property-owners who maintain, with city support, they own land to the shoreline, will continue to let local residents travel down the beach, there was a definite feeling that a few will use the ruling to keep everyone away. The ‘private beach to shoreline’ signs, which have been vandalized, are causing the hard feelings, many agreed. “Putting up the signs was crazy and they should come down,” said Margaret Currie.

Garry Bastien

Fran Dawson agreed the signs “are like a red flag to a bull” to some people, but emphasized they’re not there to “keep Constance Bay people off ” but to allow police to take action when people are disturbing the peace. “The Point belongs to all of us,” she stated. “So keep using the beach, swim in the water the same as always.” At the end of the session, Andy Rapoch, president of the “neutral” Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association, which hosted the meeting, urged citizens to work together to ease tensions in the Bay. He argued against any vigilante action to protect privatization of the beach, saying he assumed Bay residents believed in law and order. “I’m ready to work with anyone reasonable and responsible on this,” he said, volunteering the association’s services and website to the peace-making effort.

used to deter the partying. McClure suggested parking strategies and enforcement could help alleviate the problem. El-Chantiry agreed, noting overcapacity is a problem. There were so many parked vehicles in the beach area during the long weekend, a fire truck wouldn’t have been able to get through in case of a fire, he said. Brian Dunster said the problems mainly arise only on five or six weekends a year. The community and police should be able to work out a solution without dividing neighbours on the privatization issue, he said. Another resident said the problem is the ‘stay-out-of-mysandbox’ mentality and appealed to El-Chantiry to come up with a solution “without dragging the lawyers and police into it.”

EDITORIAL

City’s role at the beach FORGING FRIENDSHIPS Coun. Eli El-Chantiry argued effectively in last week’s front page column, ‘Councillor offers answers before Bay beach meeting,’ that the city has “limited interest” regarding ownership of the beach in Constance Bay. And we are fully aware the city often takes the heat for decisions made at other levels of government. (Municipal councillors everywhere can be their own worst enemy at times, offering comment on matters outside their jurisdiction.) However, in this case we say the city has a role to play in diverting non-Constance Bay residents away from the beach. Because in the end, the conflict should not be between immediate neighbours. Setting aside the reality of some overlap, the actual conflict is between responsible and respectful people in all parts of Constance Bay and partygoers from Kanata and beyond. The city should make it clear, through a sustained educational campaign, that it has public beaches free for all residents of the city to enjoy. Britannia Beach and Mooney’s Bay are sites the city should boast about often, especially to residents in Kanata. The educational campaign should also include some level of negative messaging, such as: the beach at Constance Bay is patrolled by police. Much has been made about the story appearing in a daily newspaper two years ago in which El-Chantiry referred to Constance Bay beach as “a jewel,” effectively promoting the place as a tourist destination. However, he can’t control the angle of any given story he appears in – we know that from experience. Nevertheless, the city has a role.

He attended Waste Management’s official opening of the landfill to energy facility at the Carp landfill last week, where he met Remi Godin, Waste Management’s gas operations manager. Bolivar was impressed with the project, which benefited numerous area contractors. Waste Management has also committed to establishing a university program and funding two scholarships at Carleton University.

Much has been written and said in the last weeks in regard to controversy surrounding the beach at Constance Bay. Unfortunately, at times, the central issue seems to have gotten lost in all of the rhetoric. That issue is, are we in this community to become the overflow for Britannia Beach, and in fact all of the City of Ottawa, or is this resource to be preserved as a commu-

nity asset? The Village Plan adopted in 2006 was quite clear on residents’ intentions in this regard. Residents did not want their community to become a “tourist destination.” They were opposed to creating a waterfront park that would attract people from outside the community, and they wanted the public accesses to the water maintained as a heritage resource and not to be sold. Finally, some participants in com-

munity workshops wanted the issue of ownership settled once and for all. Meetings have been held, progress made, and a rough consensus is beginning to emerge. The challenge now is to move forward to design and implement a community-based solution which addresses the intentions set out above. I believe that we can do this. Mike O’Reilly Constance Bay

Horticulture program faces elimination To the editor: Very recently a strategic programs and services planning committee at Algonquin College identified the horticulture technician program as a program that may be phased out. The decision is not final and we have been given a brief opportunity to respond to this recommendation early next week. The final recommendations will go to vote at the Board of Governors meeting in late June. We are asking for public support in this urgent mat-

ter. Key points to consider: • This is the only Horticulture Technician Program in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. The loss of this program will have a significant impact on the green industries in the Nation’s Capital. • Horticulture and landscape are growing fields. • Leaders in the industry have assured us that there is a high and expanding demand for college-trained professionals, which is supported by our high graduate placement rate. • The program provides

many benefits to the College including gardens, ponds and green space for the college community and greater Ottawa to enjoy. • The Horticulture program maintains four acres of manicured property for the college community at the program’s expense. Without the students in this program, it will cost the college a minimum of $60,000 to maintain the current gardens. • The cost of running this program is expensive. The elimination of the greenhouse is a possibility. We encourage your

involvement and support on this issue. To provide online feedback to the committee, please follow this link Its3. a l g o n q u i n c o l l e g e. c o m / spsp/login.aro.

Just a few years ago thousands of Stittsville residents were outraged by the foul smell emanating from what many call Carp Mountain. Today, Waste Management has not only solved the smell problem, but is now making money off the solution. “This is a very good thing. We see it as a win-win for the community, and we can help stabilize the grid,” said Remi Godin,

But I think we’ve turned that story into a good one.” The landfill gas to energy facility will collect landfill gas and convert it into green, renewable energy, Godin said. He added that it is proven technology, already in operation around the world. The facility will be able to generate over six megawatts of electricity, enough energy to power 6,000 homes for a year. The project received its Commercial Certificate of Operation from the Ontario Power Authority under the Ontario Feein Tariff Program earlier last month and will now provide renewable power to the electrical grid for the city.

Car, dump truck collide on Dunrobin Road DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

An Ottawa Police Service officer collects data at the scene of the Wednesday, May 26 accident that sent Delaney Tolle of Dunrobin to hospital with serious injuries.

Police rule out alcohol in deadly crash Continued from front

Ottawa police say it appears that one of the vehicles crossed the centre line on Donald B. Munro Drive and struck the other vehicle at high speed. Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor. The investigation is being hampered by the amount of damage done to the two vehicles and

the apparent lack of witnesses. Ottawa Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them at 613-2361222, ext. 7300 Donald B. Munro Drive was closed for most of the night while police investigated. It was the third major collision in West Carleton in the last eight days, with two people killed and three seriously injured.

DUNROBIN – The teenage woman involved in a Dunrobin Road collision in mid-morning May 26 remains in hospital in critical but stable condition, as of Tuesday. Delaney Tolle, 19, is believed to have crossed into the lane of an eastbound dump truck on Dunrobin Road, near Constance Lake and Murphy Side roads at about 8:15 a.m. Her silver Honda Civic was crushed almost beyond recognition. Tolle’s mother and several of the family’s neighbours were on scene shortly after the crash. Delaney remained trapped inside the vehicle for more than 30 minutes before rescue crews could remove the car roof. The dump truck was damaged on the front right side, but the driver was not injured. Tolle, a 2009 graduate of All Saints High School in Kanata, has been working at the Deka Home Hardware in Carp while still living with her mother and younger sister Riley, who is in

Grade 10. Her father, Donny Tolle, is a member of the Ottawa Fire Department. Delaney was transported to an Ottawa hospital by helicopter. Her injuries, while serious, are not deemed life-threatening and are not related to the brain or spinal cord. However, her pelvis is badly damaged. Inaccurate information about her condition is circulating on the Internet, which the family has been forced to counter. The police investigation continues, said Const. J.P. Vincelette, who wouldn’t confirm the driver’s name but did say the chances of survival increase with each passing hour. Dunrobin Road was reopened shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday.

STEVE NEWMAN Steve.newman@metroland.com Senior planner Charles Cheesman is the new acting director for the County of Renfrew’s department of development and property. He assumed the position June 1, following Jim Hutton’s recent promotion as chief administrative officer.

Hutton has succeeded the retired Norm Lemke, who worked for the County of Renfrew for 29 years. Cheesman, the county’s manager of planning, has worked with the county since 1988. At the recommendation of the CAO, the county will initiate a recruitment process for a full-time director of development and property.

May 10 to 16 was Nursing Week across Ontario and the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital recognized the hard work of local nurses with a dinner at the Staye House in Arnprior. On hand for the celebration are, from left: ADMH CEO Eric Hanna; Irmajean Banjok, director of international affairs and best practice guidelines for the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario; Leah Levesque, ADMH director of patient/resident services; and Tim Sonnenburg, ADMH director of finance and support services. Photo by Sherry Haaima

Great nursing team, strong sense of community at ADMH Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital and the Grove made a great impression on Irmajean Bajnok, director of international affairs and best practice guidelines for the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario. “I’ve been very impressed, what with the construction,” she said. “It’s a great team. There’s a strong sense of community.” Banjok spent the day in Arnprior May 13 during Nursing Week, touring the hospital and nursing home and wrapping up the visit at a dinner at the Staye House with ADMH and the Grove nurses. Banjok says she talked to staff about best practice methods and various topics, including wound care and working with patients who have dementia and respiratory problems. RNAO is also focusing on creating healthy work environments for nurses, says Banjok, and workplace health

and safety and well being for the staff. “If the staff are staying healthy they’re going to do that much better for the patients,” she says. Nurses are not just care providers, she explains, but are the front line of people who deal with patients and health-related issues. Arnprior has been selected as a RNAO Best Practice Spotlight Organization, explained Banjok. “This means we will work with them for three years to implement the guidelines,” she said. The partnership between RNAO and the spotlight organizations includes: demonstration of creative strategies for successfully implementing nursing best practice guidelines; evaluation of the implementation and outcome measures through ongoing audits and/or formal research studies; and a sharing of the lessons learned and results of the implementation. Both parties will commit financial and expert resources to the initiative.

Walk in the park June 13 to help Humane Society shelter JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com June’s a wonderful time for a walk in the park. The Arnprior & District Humane Society is inviting the public to join them in the ‘Walk in the Park’ Walk-a-thon Sunday, June 13. The annual event is an important fundraiser for the organization, said humane society president Ester Headrick. “To run the shelter, we need to fundraise. Fortunately, the people of Arnprior and West Carleton have been awesome,” she said. “But we have to keep paying the bills at the shelter … and we can’t do it without the public’s support.” Registration begins at 11 a.m. and the walk at noon, said Headrick, noting par-

ticipants can walk with or without their pets. The Spirit of ’69 will again entertain, the West Carleton Dog Agility Group will put on a demonstration and there will be a barbecue. Headrick noted the walk was moved to the shelter two years ago after being held at the mall. “It’s an awesome place to hold it,” she said. “It’s so beautiful down there.” The course is “a little shorter’ this year, she said, noting there will be four checkpoints with water available for dogs. Pledge forms are available at the Pet Valu stores in Renfrew and Arnprior and off the website at www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca. Headrick said she thinks one of the reason the walk is well supported is that Arnprior runs a no-kill shelter.

Re n f r e w - N i p i s s i n g Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is accusing the provincial government of hindering community efforts to attract doctors and other health care professionals to Renfrew County. In a news release May 25, she said the decision by the province in April to de-list communities such as Pembroke, Renfrew, Arnprior, Bonnechere Valley and Barry’s Bay from the Underserviced Area Program (UAP) is making local recruitment even more difficult.

“What is frustrating for me as a federal MP is the lack of results from the province to resolve the local doctor shortage when our federal government has transferred billions of dollars to fix the system,” Gallant charged. “The province of Ontario is not respecting the principles of the Canada Health Act. Perhaps the time has come for the federal government to put conditions on where the province spends federal health care dollars.” The continuing shortage of medical professionals is causing more pressure on pharmacists,

who are being called upon increasingly to fill the health care service gap in rural, small town Ontario, said Gallant. “Fewer pharmacists able to earn a living in our community, and provide some of the services that used to be provided by a family doctor, will result in a further deterioration of health care in our area,” she maintained. That is particularly evident in Renfrew County where there is an acute shortage of doctors, she said, adding, “I remain deeply concerned about the level of health care in our community.”

Health cards more convenient to get The fact Arnprior and area residents can now access health card and driver and vehicle services under one roof has been applauded by Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski. “I’m very happy that the Government of Ontario finally listened and utilized the infrastructure we have in place at the Ministry of Transportation drivers licence issuing offices to process health card applications and renewals,” said Yakabuski. “Issuing health cards out of driver licensing offices is an issue I have (raised)

numerous times over the past seven years in Legislature and with numerous ministers of health and long-term care, transportation and government services.” Effective May 25, health card services were made available at the Service Ontario centre at 100 Madawaska Plaza in Arnprior. The change also affects centres in Killaloe, Eganville and Deep River. “Finally my constituents have access to the service they deserve,” said Yakabuski. “No more travelling distances, in some instances 100 kilometres or more to renew a health card.”

It’s a room of tranquility in a busy hospital. A new wellness centre at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital gives its caregivers a place to go to relax, exercise and find out ways they can better care for themselves. Irmajean Bajnok, the director of international affairs for the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario, joined local officials in opening the centre on the second floor of the hospital May 13. It’s important that hospitals participate in healthy initiatives for their workers, she said. “If employees are not healthy, they won’t be able to give good care.” The centre initiative goes hand-in-hand with health work environment guidelines, Bajnok said. It an opportunity for hospital staff to work together and show leadership in promoting a healthy workplace, she added. ADMH occupational health co-ordinator Angie MacKinnon explained that setting up the wellness centre is part of the hospital’s best practices strategy. “This fits in well with that initiative. It’s a quiet place where people can go for a stress release,” she explained. She said the wellness centre offers a variety of resources for staff, including exercise equipment and yoga mats.

Keep a close eye on your furry friends this season for signs of summer stress Common sense dictates if it’s too hot for you to go out then it’s too hot for your pet. The following are just some of the things we should be aware of as temperatures heat up over the next few months. 1) Never leave a pet alone in a car on a warm or sunny day. Even with the windows partially rolled down or parked in the shade, a car can quickly heat up to swelter-

Pet Talk

ing temperatures that can cause your pet to overheat and die. 2) Fleas and ticks are more active in hot humid weather and summer is also prime time for heartworms. Talk to your vet about the best options available. 3) Beware of cocoa mulch! Although its chocolaty goodness may be appetizing to some animals (especially dogs), it can be deadly if ingested.

IAN STUPP Many pesticides and fertilizers can also prove hazardous to pets. 4) Aim for shorter dog walks midday when tem-

peratures peak and longer walks in the morning and evening when it’s cooler. Hot sidewalks can burn the pads on a dog’s paws, so stick to the grass when possible. 5) Don’t let your bunnies bake. Pet rabbits should always be kept in a cool spot indoors because they are sensitive to high temperatures. Keeping a rabbit indoors will also provide protection from potential predators. 6) Always avoid chaining or tethering your pet outdoors unattended. Long-term chaining during the hot summer months can result in an

abundance of insect bites, dehydration and heat stroke. 7) If you pet must be kept outside, make sure that there is plenty of shade and a fresh bowl of water. 8) Dogs can get sunburned too, especially if they have pink skin, light or very short coat. If you’re planning a trip to the beach, slather on the sun block (just be sure to choose a brand with natural ingredients paying special attention to your pup’s sensitive nose and ears. 9) Your pet is likely to get attacked by mosqui-

toes when they are most active, which is between dusk and dawn when the air is calm. That is when the females are most likely to bite. Call your veterinarian immediately if your pet becomes lethargic, vomits and or has diarrhea, stops eating or playing as usual. These may be signs of heat stroke.

Several ways to have a pet-safe summer

Landfill to energy project to power 6,000 homes “I am pleased that Waste Management has brought this green energy technology online and added more renewable energy capacity to West Carleton,” West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said. To help celebrate the launch at the landfill site, Waste Management welcomed media, politicians, and local business leaders to last Friday’s ribbon cutting. There it was announced that Waste Management has entered into a partnership with Carleton University to establish a Renewable Energy Laboratory and two $2,000 scholarships for students in environmental engineering. The laboratory will be part of the university’s research, teaching and study of sustainable energy, especially wastebased energy conversion, and be available to undergraduate and graduate students. A “field energy centre” will also be established at the Carp Road location. They are contingent upon approval from

the Ministry of Environment for the proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre, which includes a controversial new landfill next to the existing landfill. “We think it is important to be good neighbours and contribute to the community,” Godin said. “We are also establishing a trust fund for community.” That came as music to Roddy Bolivar’s ears. He is attempting to establish a Business Improvement Area (BIA) along the Carp Road corridor. He attended the official opening and was impressed with what he saw. BIAs charge a levy to business operators, but allow them to speak with a united voice and solve issues together. “This is positive. This is really positive,” Bolivar said. “Anything that is positive in the corridor is positive for all businesses in the corridor.” The economic spinoffs in constructing the site were positive for Bruce Mackie of Theile Contractors. He was at the event to admire the end product of his labours. Waste Management says its technology to convert industrial and commercial waste to energy is a proven technology. Some observers remain skeptical that gasification, such as at Trail Road, will work. At left is the new facility on Carp Road.

“I think it’s fantastic. They are good neighbours to have. We are just down the road from them,” MacKie said. “This project’s been good for us.”

Seventy-five jobs were created during the construction phase, with more than $1 million going to the city in the form of development fees and related costs.

COMMENTARY

Are you OK with 20 years of gridlock on March Road? ALEXANDER ARONEC Ward 5 candidate With the warm weather upon us, I am reminded that the most favourite season of the year is upon us; no, not summer. I am referring to road construction season. Any of you who have driven along March Road into the city may have noticed the construction happening to widen the road. The current project is to expand the road from two lanes to four just past the Klondike Road area. I drive this section of road daily, as do any of you who go into or out of North Kanata or points east and south from Constance Bay, Fitzroy Harbour, Dunrobin, and Carp to name just a few impacted communities. If you drive the section of road from Morgan’s Grant to the Dunrobin Road turnoff, you know that it is virtual gridlock during rush hour. Add in school buses and the mixture becomes even slower. As I sat unmoving on March Road in front of Jack and Mary Dekok’s farm last week, during the morning rush hour, the obvious question came to mind. This was “When will the expansion to four lanes up to the obvious convergence/divergence point at Dunrobin Road be completed?” The current phase of the expansion, according to the City of Ottawa website, will be done in 2011 and will result in the choke point moving from Klondike Road to approximately 350 meters beyond Old Carp Road. As the Ward division is at Old Carp Road, congratulations to the few of you in the ward who will benefit from it soon. The answer to my question was to say, at the least, surprising. I used the City of Ottawa website to get some information. The current project is well documented, lots of drawings, schedule information and even the City of Ottawa point of contact. As for the next phase, nothing obvious was found other than in the 20032008 Ottawa 20/20 Transportation Plan, which was issued in April of 2003. This states that the Environmental Assessment for the Morgan’s Grant to Dunrobin Road was completed. This was good as the EA process can delay things if it has not yet been completed. The 2008 TMP identifies that FUTURE SHOP- CORRECTION NOTICE Bell BlackBerry Pearl Prepaid 10145300.

613-623-1302 West Carleton-March council candidate Alexander Aronec says a little more spending up front will save in the long run, especially when it comes to projects like this one on March Road that snarls traffic daily. there are two planned construction activities for this stretch of road. The first is “Bicycle lanes or paved shoulders between Terry Fox Road and Dunrobin Road” and the second is “Widen (March Road) from two to four lanes from Old Carp Road to Dunrobin Road.” I fully support the first construction plan as this section of road is actively used by cyclists. Before you make any plans, you should know that the first stage of construction, according to page 75, is between 2009 and 2015. I can not find any reference to this being an awarded contract so the safe assumption is post 2011 for this to happen. The expansion to four lanes, according to page 80 of the plan, is to occur sometime between 2023 and 2031. That means for anywhere between the next 13 and 21 years, the Old Carp Road to Dunrobin Road stretch will be gridlocked. Are your happy with this? I certainly am not. CHANGE THINKING I believe the entire project could be executed in a better fashion. It is not the actual construction I have an issue with, but rather how long it will take to be useful. I often have stated that we need to change the way we think at city hall. This road construction should be extended to Dunrobin Road if not in parallel with, certainly directly subsequent to, the current construction. There are volumes of discussions about bridges that go to no where. But it would make sense for the road to be extended to a FUTURE SHOP- CORRECTION NOTICE

logical junction point. Yes, I am looking at this with hindsight, but clearly common sense did not seem to have been a factor in the decision-making either. If we are going through this effort to extend the road, then it should just as well have been planned for and implemented properly the first time around. The way that thinking needs to change is that the city should do it right the first time, even if it costs more money in the short term for a long term gain. In this situation, unless something happens, those of us who commute along March Road, will still be grumbling under our breath a bit further up/down the road from where we presently do 15 years from now! The question should always be asked how does it affect the people, and then how can we do it better. The change you want to see starts with projects like this. If I was to simply be Alexander the candidate, I would let this issue rest until the new city council is in place in December. I am not that type of person. If you are as annoyed as I am about this, contact the current city council and let them know your feelings. I firmly believe this to be a situation of “You snooze, you lose” in getting this construction moved up, schedule-wise. While I have been out knocking on doors, I clearly have not as of yet been able to talk with everyone in the ward. To give you a chance to get your ideas to me, I have created a survey on my website: aronec2010.ca or call 613-2909916.

COMMENTARY

Food system affects our health in numerous ways JIM MACKENZIE Part 1 of 2

OVERFED AND UNDERNOURISHED Fourthly, many of us eat too much. North Americans have become infamous for being overfed and undernourished. In this case, the only unhealthy thing about the crops that farmers produce is their prices – they are too low. Food has become so cheap that we overeat. And some of the foods we eat are almost addic-

tive – there are designed this way. The result is wave of obesity that is sweeping our nation and driving up the costs of our health care system. It is especially serious amongst our children, many of whom are suffering from diabetes. Fifthly, some of us don’t eat enough. We tend to think of insufficient food as a problem facing people living in developing countries – but lower income people in Canada often face this same problem. To deal with this, food banks have become a growth industry in our wealthy country. Even small rural towns have food banks. And organizations like the Salvation Army and Shepherds of Good Hope find that provision of food to the

In the Review of May 13, Jeff Spooner pointed out that I did not elaborate on why our food system is affecting our health. Let me do so. Firstly, farmers are only a small part of the complex food system that we have created. Many of the problems that arise with our food are created beyond the farm gate. When 20 people died from eating products made by Maple Leaf Foods, the causes lay squarely in the factories where the products were created – not on the farms that supplied the raw materials. It was the food industry – not farmers – that created transfats and have been adding huge amounts of salt and other preservatives to their products. Just take a look at the labels on some of the foods sold today. Some even have calcium chloride in them – yes, road salt. No farmer ever put that there. Secondly, much of the food that Canadians eat today is imported and our regulatory system is not in a position to ensure that it meets Canadian standards. If it is contaminated, or has deteriorated because it has traveled long distances, we may not know. Indeed, food that is sold here in poor condition may have been in excellent shape when it left the farm in Peru, Mexico, or elsewhere. Also, remember the dog food from China that killed so many of our furry friends? Some of the food we eat comes from that same country. Whales, which used to be a key part of the diet of Faeroe Island-

ers, have now been declared too toxic to eat. Hormones fed to beef cattle in South America have been found to adversely affect the reproductive systems of young girls. We are now part of a global food supply system – not just a Canadian system. Thirdly, our diets are very deficient in fruits and vegetables JIM MACKENZIE and this is affecting our health. Our farmers are quite willing to produce excellent fruits and vegetables in abundance if they can make a profit doing so. This has become very difficult because of changes in our food marketing system, especially the promotion of manufactured and junk foods. Even Canadian city-dwellers used to have vegetable gardens in their back-yards and they would preserve these for use during the winter. Now, even few rural people have vegetable gardens.

poor continues to be an important part of their work. Depending on food banks and charities means a poor diet. So it is not surprising to see that there is a high correlation between poverty and poor health. Our American friends seem to do better that we do. At least they have food stamp and school lunch programs. Sixthly, we eat every day, probably several times – for obvious reasons. And we are creatures of habit. Small changes in our diet applied over a long period of time can create major changes in our bodies. An example is the build-up of cholesterol in our arteries. See next week’s issue for part 2

OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 55 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of May 21 to the 27. Shortly after 4:30 p.m. on May 26, a suspicious man had reportedly approached a complainant’s daughter, near MacMillan Lane, in a manner that suggested he was trying to hug her. Unfamiliar and wary of his intent, the girl walked away and reported the incident to her mother. The man was described as a white male in his 50s, brown hair, and was wearing a white shirt and a hat. LIFE JACKETS SAVE LIVES Why not buckle up? For one Constance Bay boater, who happened to be wearing a life jacket when she was thrown from the craft, life jackets do save lives. While driving her boat back to the Buckhams Bay launch, at around 3 p.m. on May 21, the boater reached over to grab a second life jacket that was stuck in the seat and ended up catching the steering wheel. The sudden movement of the wheel caused the boat to violently lurch into a tight turn and sent the boater flying into the cold water. As a homeowner worked in her backyard she overheard the screams for help, coming from across the river. Looking on, she quickly zeroed in on a boat running 360s and a life jacket floating close by. After floating in the water for about 10- to 15 minutes firefighters pulled the relieved boater out of the water. For the next few hours, police and fire-

fighters looked on as the Prince-craft vessel ran its finite loop and at around 6:10 p.m., the engine finally sputtered to a stop and the sound of silence once again filled the bay. NIGHT MOOVES ON GALETTA Shortly after midnight on Tuesday, May 25, a complainant called 911 to report a large herd CONST. PETER JEON of cows milling about on Galetta Side Road, just south of Torbolton Ridge Road. When police arrived on scene, a short while later, the herd had already mooved on into the night.

Parkway a complainant struck a turkey, while it was in-flight, and completely smashed in his windshield. OH DEER, A RACOON A young driver, who was intently looking out for deer while driving along Sixth Line Road, shortly after 9 p.m. on Monday, failed to notice the raccoon that was crossing the road until he was almost right on top of it. In an attempt to avoid running over the critter, the driver swerved and lost control of his dad’s car and ended up upside down in the ditch.

Okay, bear with me, the Ministry of Natural Resources, or MNR for short, will only intervene in bear calls if the police have taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to calm the animal down and encourage it to return to its natural habitat on its own. “Nice bear. Gooood bear. Just calm down, I know you like bird food, but…., okay dispatch, the bear’s not buying it.” Shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Friday, a complainant on Monaghan Lane, called 911 to report a bear doing a standup routine at his birdfeeder and chowing down on the tasty little seeds. See BEAR page 22

STANDUP BEAR GONE TO BIRDS

CATTLE CALL Not the Hollywood auditions call, but the one where police and fire are called out to prevent a potential accident. At around 9 a.m. on Saturday, fire and police services were called out to Pineridge Road in Westwood, after a complainant spotted a bunch of cattle hoofing it towards March Road. Police were able to move the cattle off of March Road and back into greener pastures. IN-FLIGHT TURKEY DINNER? Almost, but the turkey reportedly took off into the bush.

Bears on the move in search of food this season Continued from page 21

The sign was last seen posted at 1389 Galetta Side Rd. and discovered stolen at 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

By the time police arrived in the area, the bear had already moved on in search of other food sources. With bears out of hibernation, they are on the move in search of food. Since there is little natural food for bears at this time of the year, black bears will search for other food sources such as birdfeeders. To minimize the chances of attracting black bears: store garbage in waste containers with tight-fitting lids; put out garbage only on the morning of pickup; put away bird feeders; and clean outdoor grills after each use, including the grease trap underneath. Bears will be drawn by smells from great distances, including grease and food residue on grills. Accidents May 26 Dunrobin Road, West Carleton: A teenage driver was sent to hospital with life-threatening injuries after her vehicle was struck on the driver’s side by a large truck. After coming to a stop on Constance Lake Road, at the Dunrobin Road intersection, the driver attempted to turn south and was struck by the dump truck. The dump truck operator attempted to avoid the collision by slamming on his brakes and swerving to the left, but he was unsuccessful. B&E May 22 Dunrobin Road, Woodlawn: Police attended camp Woolsey to investigate a mischief incident that occurred sometime between 6 p.m. on Friday, May 21 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 22. Unknown persons broke into an abandoned cottage during the overnight hours and partied. May 24 Sunning Hills Crescent, Constance Bay: Sometime between Friday, May 21 and 2:30 p.m. on Monday, May 24, unknown persons broke into a house on Sunning Hills Crescent, by kicking in the front door, and made themselves right at home. The thieves helped themselves to a bottle of Crown Royal from the kitchen cabinet, a Nikon D60 digital camera and a Panasonic sub-woofer speaker. A pizza box from Sammy’s Pizza and six Coors light beer bottles were located inside of the house. Mischief: May 23 Baillie Drive, Constance Bay: A complainant called police to report a mischief to property incident that occurred around 10 p.m. on Sunday. The complainant stated that unknown persons had snapped off her wooden crosses that were attached to her fence posts. May 26 Woodkilton Road, Dirleton: Sometime between 4 and 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, a complainant awoke to the sound of breaking glass. When she got up to investigate she discovered that her lamp post at the end of her driveway was smashed and the post knocked down. Suspicious May 26 Charlies Lane, Carp Village: Shortly before 9 p.m. on Wednesday, a suspicious male was observed walking around the backyards of residences along Charlie Lane and hanging around a rock pile, situated at the dead end of the street. The male was described as a white, 18 years old, 5’8” tall, medium build and was wearing a gray plaid shirt with blue strips and brown pants. He was noted to be carrying around a black backpack. Police were unable to locate the suspicious male. Theft May 26 Galetta Side Road, Dirleton: A real estate agent called the OPS Call Center to report a theft of a sale’s sign.

The sign is 24” x 36” in size with a black metal frame and has the names of the real estate agents, David Sugarman and Angela Augsbury, written on both sides.

May 26 Pleasant Creek Drive: A complainant reported his ATV stolen sometime between 1 and 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning. The ATV was last seen parked underneath the complainant bedroom window and was described as a red 2009 Outlander with 2-seats and Ontario plate 48RD4.

Dragon slayers There is a trail system live in your backyard Spring has now slipped into the past tense. Summer flowers have replaced the blooms of spring ephemerals and the pathetic cries of begging nestlings have taken the place of the melodious songs of migrant birds. The arrival of a new generation of songbirds has done more than signal the end of migration. It has instigated myriad displays of ruthless plunder and remarkable courage. Even if you have not heard the high-pitched complaints of nestlings, you have likely seen evidence of the presence of baby birds. Every time an American Robin flies past with a worm dangling out of its beak, you can be assured it is heading for a nest. Once a bird’s eggs hatch, it spends a phenomenal amount of time gathering food to stuff down the throats of its youngsters that own insatiable appetites. A major source of nutrition for many nestlings is now available in wetlands and along the edges of rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. When you see Redwinged Blackbirds or Common Grackles (those long-tailed blackbirds with yellow eyes and purplish heads) walking along a shore or hopping across lily pads, you are witnessing the exploitation of that resource. Currently, armies of

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way dragonflies are emerging from local waters and they are a major source of food for many baby birds. Now, in the air a dragonfly has little to fear from most birds apart from large flycatchers such as Eastern Kingbirds and Great Crested Flycatchers. But in the teneral phase, the short-lived stage that starts when the moment it breaks free of its nymphal prison, a dragonfly is extremely vulnerable. All dragonflies spend the main part of their life in the water as gill-breathing nymphs. But after a year or so they leave their aquatic world and, depending on what species they are and the habitat they are leaving, the nymphs crawl onto rocks or up the stems of emergent plants such as cattails.

Then takes place one of the most amazing transformations of life anywhere on this planet. The back of the nymph splits open and through this slit an air-breathing dragonfly emerges. But many of the newly emerged dragonflies never take wing for they immediately get grabbed by birds, some even before they fully escape their nymph body. The sharp-eyed blackbirds seem particularly adept at capturing newly emerged dragonflies. Red-winged Blackbirds and Common Grackles are not only highly devoted to feeding their young. They are also dedicated to defending them. Whenever a large bird flies over their territory, regardless of whether that be a field or a marsh, they attack it. Recently I have watched blackbirds fearlessly attack American Crows, Common Ravens, Redtailed Hawks, and Northern Harriers. This aggressive behaviour, which usually includes all available birds, is known as mobbing. I guess that behaviour makes these courageous birds not only dragon slayers but also giant chasers! Recent sightings include a Sandhill Crane in a field with a flock of Canada Geese near Braeside.

that dogs can use To the editor: Re: Arnprior Chronicle-Guide issue May 21 and May 27, Re letters to the editor: Dog park good news, but trail needed. Well I have great news. The trail system is in place and, guess what? The Town of Arnprior owns it, which is a great tribute to Councilman Eric Burton’s recent motion re conservation lands. What you see here falls into that category, albeit there are some corporate folks around who could “come inside” to see it a reality e.g. Sandvik, Pillars, Campanale Realty and the Sullivan Group. The trails are clear, safe, are presently utilized by dog owners who know of its existence, and for an estimated cost of $10,000 could make this entire area accessible to not only responsible dog owners, but the physically disadvantaged as well. What is here is a treasure trove of nature. Turtle Pond with its inhabitants of turtles, beavers, muskrats, ravens etc. It also has wild asparagus and other special flora, etc. Others who are aware of this area are none other than the Land Preservation Society of the Ottawa Valley. They have funds in their bank account and what a special initiative it would be to cost the improvements necessary for the ‘Turtle Pond’ Nature Trail. While the Gillies Grove is an important asset to the area, so is the Macnamara Trail and this area too. Think ‘big’ here. Arnprior can and should be a ‘green’ destination area.

Letter writer Thomas Charbonneau submitted several photographs of local trails where dogs are welcome. With the proposed White Pine Festival and, hopefully, a more positive attitude to the Gillies Grove than presently seems to exist, Arnprior is a winner here. For my part, I am at present a volunteer who is keeping trash, etc. out of this area and cleaning trails, etc. I am waiting for the opportunity to make this special place a ‘reality’.

There were more impressive performances Friday, with Matt Basler finishing second in the 400 and the 800 metres. In the latter, he came within a hair of first. Basler shattered the school record that he just set a few weeks ago by over two seconds in the 800. He also ran a sub-50 second 400 to earn him a spot in two individual events at OFSAA.

Winter. “Congrats to all athletes who contributed.” EOSSAA gold-medalists included Basler, Plunkett, Lecuyer, Ty Whitelock, Cody Moore, Laura Craig, and the midget and junior boys relay teams. The performances by some the youngest of the ADHS contingent bodes well for the school. Craig, who is in Grade 9, jumped 1.50 metres to break the school record in high jump, and Grade 9 boys Lecuyer, Moore, Plunkett and Braedon Gwalchmai broke the meet record in the midget boys 4x100-metre relay.

It has been a few months since she lost her beloved sister Ashley, and despite the companionship of her good friend Donkey, I’m sure she misses the company of horses. The farmer entered Misty’s pen with a pitchfork load of hay, and pulled her by the halter over to the corner. “I want to show you something,” he said, gently. “Look. Here. Water.” He pushed a button and water filled a bowl. He wet his hand and touched Misty’s nose. I’m sure once she figures that gadget out it will be her favourite toy and she will play for hours. We don’t have any toys for her at the farm. Once she had settled in somewhat, we decided to properly introduce her to Prince. He had been watching with interest from the closest corner of his stall. As we approached, he excitedly kicked the stall with his great hoof. It sounded like a gunshot.

The two horses touched noses through the bars. Prince snorted excitedly and perked up from ears to tail, like a dog meeting a newcomer. Misty responded by sniffing once and then turning to her side, away from him. “I guess she isn’t interested in him today,” I said. As we walked Misty back to her stall, I explained that one day soon she would be very interested in Prince, so she should probably be nicer to him. Misty went to the corner to examine her automatic water trough. I turned to go. I’m glad I came along to settle Misty in to her special summer camp. I think it will be good for her to be with other horses for a few weeks. And with any luck, we’ll have a baby Belgian to welcome onto the Fisher farm in about 11 months. As for Donkey, he seems to be lost without his playmate. Today he tried to make friends with a plastic deer decoy during target practice.

St. Mike’s students wow peers in Idol contest JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

About 80 students entered with 16 solo artists and groups qualifiying for the finals. The winners in the junior category were stepdancer Jonah McMillan in

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

DUNROBIN – The two-year wait for another topnotch musical by students at West Carleton Secondary School is almost over. Guys and Dolls hits the stage tonight (Thursday) and tomorrow night. And judging from the elaborate set design, superb lighting, wonderful costumes and hard work put in by talented students on stage, it is shaping up to be every bit as successful as past productions. Based on Damon Runyon’s short story The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown, Guys and Dolls revolves around Nathan Detroit (Calvin Puritt), the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating craps game in New York, who bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson (Calum Slingerland) that he can’t make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. The next girl he sees happens to be Miss Sarah Brown (Colleen Campbell), a pure-at-heart Salvation Army-type reformer, and the stage is set for a hilarious evening of complications that include Miss Adelaide (Keisha Williams). It comes complete with show-stopping tunes like Luck Be a Lady, A Bushel and a Peck, I’ve Never Been in Love Before, and Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat. However, along with fun are a number of valuable lessons for the 27 students involved, according to drama teacher Alison Hauch. Not only is it a creative outlet for self expression, but participants learn team work, time management, empathy (for characters and Photos by Derek Dunn fellow thespians), marketing and sales skills Calum Slingerland, left, Colleen Campbell, Keisha Williams and Calvin Puritt take on the classic golden age musical Guys and Dolls at (they sell the tickets), and confidence to speak West Carleton Secondary School. The students enjoy acting, but seem more focused on personal and inter-personal experiences. in front of others. “I see it as skills that are transferable to the real world,” Hauch said. “It’s important because it allows them to see both the artistic side as well as the production side.” Ryan Bottriell’s job is pretty much everything the actors don’t do. The stage manager helped design the set and lighting, and said he has learned a lot from the experience. “Organization, that’s the main thing,” he said, laughing. Puritt said he values the relationships he has developed during the year. “I’ve made a lot of new friends and further developed others,” he said. “(To be a good actor) takes focus, and practice and tolerance.” Slingerland said he vowed to participate in the school play before leaving high school. He has learned to take the Scouts’ motto seriously. “Be ready at all times, and punctuality is key,” he said. Campbell sides with her character’s ability to stand up for what she believes in, but in other aspects she really has to act. “She’s more aloof and stuck up than I am. I’m more of a people person,” she said. “It’s been a lot of fun and there is so much reward in the end when you try your hardest.” Williams has been singing and dancing since she was four years old. But she doesn’t plan to put all her eggs in one basket. She has a strong practical side, too. “I love the arts, but I’m going into nursing next year,” she said. “If I have the opportunity to sing again, I’d go for it. But I have to be practical, too.” The school is hoping some 600 community members will come out to see the performance. After past productions, some have been heard to say the quality is every bit as good as what can be found in professional theatres, even though it occurs nearby in West Carleton. For $10 tickets, call West at 613-832-2773 ext. 0. The curtain rises at 7 p.m.

Welcome New Members

20th Annual Golf Tournament On Tuesday, May 18, 2010, the Kanata Chamber of Commerce hosted its 20 th Annual Golf Tournament at Greensmere Golf & Country Club and the weather could not have been better. This year’s event attracted over 120 enthusiastic golfers from our business community, with more members joining us for the evening dinner and awards. After enjoying a sunny and warm day on the links, our golfers were ready to help raise funds for charity at the live and silent auction.
