El-Chantiry seeks third term on city council

36 pages

HORSING AROUND IN CARP

Saving CN line, improving roads among issues for 2011 and beyond DEREK DUNN Derek.dunn@metroland.com KINBURN – Eli El-Chantiry walked from his office across the hallway at the Kinburn Client Service Centre on June 2 to plunk his $100 registration fee on the table. The incumbent will seek a third term to represent Ward 5, West Carleton-March at Ottawa city council. To date, there is one other candidate in the race. Alexander Aronec, 21, is a political science student who has been knocking on doors in the ward and writing on local issues in the West Carleton Review since the beginning of 2010. El-Chantiry’s timing was not particularly strategic. His assistant, Lisa McGee, celebrated her birthday last Wednesday. El-Chantiry promised to let her know by that date if he planned to fight to retain her job for the next four years. “I have been honoured and privileged to serve West Carleton these years,” El-Chantiry said, then spoke of two issues he wants to pursue if elected on

Oct. 25. “We need to preserve the CN rail line. “This is connecting the community together,” he said, adding that a freight line from Renfrew and the Pontiac will create jobs. He currently represents Mayor Larry O’Brien in talks on saving the line; meeting with influential local politicians such as Conservative MP John Baird and Liberal MPP Bob Chiarelli. “Roads is the other one. We can never say enough about roads. That’s where we get the most emails,” he said. El-Chantiry said there is a danger of running out of labour and time (Aug. 10) to spend the money matched by the federal government’s stimulus package. He said having an opponent in the race is “great” and keeps him sharp. “It’s nice to see someone in their 20s interested in the political process.” Aronec said his friends like to point out how it took this long for El-Chantiry to put his name in.

The bluegrass singer-songwriter discusses music, national identity and defending the rural way of life

CARP – If you’ve picked up a Huntley Slim and the Suburban Cowboys CD or heard them live in Kinburn or even at Zaphod Beeblebrox, one thing would have come clear right away: yep, they are from Huntley. Well, half the band is. Chris Mellor plays guitar and sings vocals for the alt-country band. His partner, Seamus Mulready on banjo and vocals, is the suburban side, hailing from Kanata. Mellor sat down recently with the West Carleton Review at his day job locale, The Swan at Carp. He spoke knowledgably about the history of bluegrass, country and numerous other musical strains. He talked a bit of politics and about Canada’s tortured identity. But it was his love of growing up rural that shone through with the most conviction. “I grew up in the country,” Mellor said. “It’s getting harder and harder to get away from the suburbs. They just keep coming on. It makes me weep when you hear of another farm coming down.” The theme is sprinkled throughout the band’s first album, Songs from the Chicken Coop. (It was recorded in an actual chicken coop in Carp.) Take Suburban Blues, for example: “I’ve got this feelin’ down in the boots/every neighbour I’ve got their cahoots/I’m a long way from home, I’ve got nowhere to be/There’s something about this cookie cutter architecture/So many answers, nobody needs a lecture about the place where they grew up.” He then talks about the subdivided hell with a sense of worth for “those who need it least.” It’s the kind of passion in keeping with man in his mid twenties. But there is no incongruity between frustrated lyrics and the kind of rockabilly music behind them. Mellor explains that Huntley

Slim’s unique blend of traditional music with restructured lyrics and song structures borrows from the hills of Appalachia as much as it does the gritty city streets of today. Drawing inspiration from any number of styles, Huntley Slim is primarily influenced by bluegrass, old time, punk rock and alt-country. In other words, his music incorporated the rebelliousness of rock’n’roll before rock came to be. “Old time and bluegrass was the answer to rock’n’roll in the ’30s and ’40s. It was hipper, ahead of its time, a lot of speed,” he said. “We are doing something different, but that means some people don’t always get what we are trying to do.”

Songs from the Chicken Coop was produced at a chicken coop in Carp. With a raw, natural sound, Huntley Slim is looking to push the musical boundaries of traditional music fans as well as introduce a new sound to alternative audiences. Although he wasn’t brought up in a particularly musical family, Mellor’s grandfather shared a love of old folk music, train songs and military songs.

He said the guitar first came to him out of sheer boredom, the bane of every country kid’s existence. Solitude and loneliness are fodder for the creative soul. “I spent a lot of time alone growing up. It’s just one of those things,” he said. “It took me a long time to write my own music. I thought it was more complicated than it was. But it’s all about being 100 per cent honest. Like Hank Williams. He could read the phone book and make you cry.” He talked about other differences between growing up rural versus suburban. Many of Mulready’s friends, he noted, are still around the same vicinity. But country kids often have to move far away from friends and family to get a start in their chosen vocation. Then there is the limited number of friends to chose from; it increases tolerance, but maybe he wouldn’t have been friends with some people he did grow up with. Mellor cautions that his music isn’t drenched in deep meaning. Photo by Derek Dunn “I’m not sure we are activists or Chris Mellor, a.k.a Huntley Slim, takes a break from popanything like that. Music is a venue ping sodas at his day job and picking guitar at his night for what you have to say, for sure,” he to talk music and what’s right abour rural living. said.

It’s all “Here and Now” about space in Canada,” he said. “In the U.S. there is a lot more people and a lot less space.” 613-227-0637 306859

EDITORIAL

Be careful! Please

If this were a newspaper that wrote editorials on the regular basis about how our readers should keep themselves safe, we would understand the force behind the argument would lose emphasis. Crying wolf is a lesson many of us learned long ago. However, we maintain there are times when readers need to be reminded to care - especially on the roads. This is one of those times. Between May 20 and May 28, during a mere eightday period, our area was devastated by three major car accidents. A young woman, 18-year-old Katrina ‘Kay’ Lyman died after her car hit a pickup truck. (Police now suspect she was texting.) On May 26, a 19-year-old woman, Delaney Tolle, was seriously injured after her car hit a dump truck. And on May 28, a 45-yearold man was killed after colliding with another car. The other driver, too, sustained serious injuries. It can happen to anyone at any time. The one common characteristic? Drivers were not being as safe as they could have been. Graduation season is coming. Summer Sunday drives and lugging the boat or camper to that favourite get-away spot are coming. If you know of a particularly dangerous turn or intersection near you, we welcome a letter to the editor letting everyone in the community know about it. Someone who nags others about safety tends to blow credibility, true. But sometimes circumstances reach a point. Unfortunately, now is one of those times.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Educating consumers key to healthy society To the editor: In his commentary on our food system, Jim MacKenzie touched on many of the key issues. However, many of the conclusions are open to question. I would agree that many of us eat too much, but cheap food is hardly the reason. Many of us fail to make proper food choices, and adhere to a balanced diet, which causes us to load up on empty calories and is partially the cause for the rise in obesity, lack of exercise is also high on the list. One might wonder if there is a connection with the fact that there are fewer rurals growing there own food, as MacKenzie points out, and high obesity rates. Stats Canada pointed out not long ago that Renfrew County had some of the highest obesity rates in the province, with the rural areas being the highest overall. He is quite right that many of us don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables but the causes vary. For some it’s easier to serve prepared food, for others it’s a cost issue. Junk food is cheaper than buying fruit. While he argues for higher prices to be paid to the farmer he also states that low income people can’t buy sufficient food. Of course these two things are in direct conflict.

Low income people simply can’t afford to buy fruits and vegetables on a regular basis. Studies have shown that low income people have a higher obesity rate, which implies diet and can be traced back to cost. If you are on a strict budget, buying locally at a farmers market is not the way to go, as prices are invariably cheaper at the super market, but still prohibitive for many. We live however in a global food market, and with lower labour costs in other countries we will never be competitive in certain products. Raising local food prices will just never happen. What has happened is the consumer has become more aware of what they are buying thanks to labeling. We can make sound choices as to what we choose. Raw products such as fruits, vegetables, fish and meat must identify their country of origin. The same is true for canned goods. The consumer is then free to choose with this knowledge in hand. As a personal preference I will not buy products from China, or American meat products. There has also been a tremendous rise in organic food products with people deciding that they would like their food to be chemical and pesticide free as much as possible. Both organic food products and farmers markets carry a higher sticker cost, but people have made a

conscious decision to pay more. In fact consumers are adapting and are more aware, as never before, to a changing food market. While most of your food choices are out of your individual control, there are other things you can do besides buying locally reading labels and buying organic. Instead of buying prepared meats, buy larger hams, turkeys, chicken, beef roasts, and pork roasts with the leftovers becoming lunch meat. This is one example of controlling your food supply. This of course does not solve the problem for those that can’t afford these things, and I agree we must do more. By the way both the public and separate school boards have had a breakfast program in their schools for years in order to assist those less fortunate In the end it all comes down to education. We need to know where are food comes from. We need to know what constitutes a proper diet. Perhaps most importantly we need to know how to cook, or perhaps get back to cooking, instead of relying on prepared foods from the supermarket or fast food delivery. Simply stated we are ultimately responsible for how and what we choose to eat. Jeff Spooner Kinburn

To the editor: Remember, it is law in Ontario to have working alarms on each storey and outside all sleeping areas in your cottage, as it is in your home.

Please also check your local laws regarding carbon monoxide alarms and your residence. Fire chiefs across cottage country want you to have ‘Peace of Mind At Your Piece of Heaven.’

Heed these tips: • Change all smoke alarm batteries at least once per year; • Replace all smoke alarms over 10 years old; • If your cottage has a fireplace, or gas or propane

Did you know that the Conservative minority government is smuggling certain controversial measures into its upcoming federal budget Bill C-9? While all eyes are on the Rahim Jaffer/Helena Guergis scandal, some other shady business is getting overlooked. Items that might prove unpopular, exposed to the light of public scrutiny, are being packaged and sold as part of a budget that is quickly working its way through Parliament. The Conservatives are counting on the opposition’s reluctance to have an election to get their budget approved. But it is essential that the package is opened and its contents handled with care. Among those contents: opening up Canada Post’s exclusive privilege to handle letters to international mail corporations. This is the Conservatives’ third annual attempt to deregulate international letters. Part 15 of Bill C-9 is the same legislation as Bill C-44, which died with the prorogation of the government last December. Prior to C-44, there was C-14, which died when the 2008 election was called. Repeatedly trotting out this legislation is not surprising given the current government’s ideological position. The Conservatives favour the wholesale deregulation and privatization of public services, regardless of what the public wants. The exclusive privilege that Canada Post holds on lettermail provides the necessary funds to allow it to provide universal public postal service. We live in the second-largest country in the world and should be proud

of our postal system, operating in difficult terrain and across a huge landmass, to deliver affordable postal services to all of us, regardless of where we live. With a gradual erosion of Canada Post’s exclusive privilege, rural dwellers are likely to see huge rate hikes, more post office closures and more services cut. The corporate business bottom line does not serve the same goal as universal public services and we know it. That’s why the Conservatives, who rely on rural voters, don’t dare fully deregulate. Instead, they will starve Canada Post of badly needed revenue and then propose “market solutions” to the crisis they have created. The passage of C-9 would also signal to the corporate sector that the door is open for further deregulation. Part 15 of Bill C-9 is a tool to chip away at public postal service. It would legalize the currently illegal operations of businesses known as “remailers” that are handling letters bound for foreign destinations. Despite several court judgments against them, these illicit mailers are still in business, siphoning millions in revenue from Canada Post. Why are we allowing this to happen? Why are the Conservatives dodging democratic debate by sneaking deregulation into the budget bill? This increasingly underhanded government must be held accountable. As we have demanded transparency in the Guergis-Jaffer affair, so too we must demand transparency in the budget bill. Part 15 of the C-9 package needs to be taken out and evaluated on its own merits, through a proper public consultation and debate.

The vast array of foods found on supermarket shelves would, at first glance, seem to be a great thing. In some ways it is, but it also means that there are many, many ways for us to make selections which are not so good for our health. When I returned from Africa some years ago I made a comparison of my food intake there and what I was eating in Canada. I had far fewer foods to choose from in Africa, but my diet was much healthier. Back in Canada, I had to make an extra effort to choose foods

Health Research Council is now sponsoring a project in Ottawa to develop recommendations for municipalities that want to take action on improving our diets to make us healthier. Some medical faculties in the U.S. are making major changes to their curricula to include more training for doctors in nutrition. But sadly, our taxes, some of which must go to pay for our huge health care system, have now become a larger expense item for Canadians than the food we eat!

more, virtually all of the food Canadians ate prior to WWII was raised organically – now there has been a resurgence in the demand for organic food, primarily because many consumers believe that it is healthier. All of this information is readily available to the public and is well-documented. A few hours spent on the Internet or in one of Ottawa’s libraries can provide a mountain of studies and reports that will support it. Many of our Canadian medical professionals have recognized the problem and are trying to address it in one way or another. The Canadian

which would give me a diet as healthy as the one I consumed automatically in Africa. Finally, the foods that we eat today are sometimes very different from products of the same name from years ago. When I was growing up we regularly ate beef produced on my father’s farm. This was not the same as the beef that comes from the large feedlots of today. Many family farmers have recognized this and are now catering to consumers who want to avoid the feedlot-produced product. In our own community, Fitzroy Beef Producers is an excellent example.

Horse shows return to Carp Fairgrounds DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

CARP – Horsing around is back in full stride at the Carp Fairgrounds this spring. The Eastern Ontario Quarter Horse Association held its first of at least three events in the village this year. The Spring Fling was a hot and sunny affair two weekends ago, beginning on Thursday. Much better than the cool reception horses and riders got last year, according to organizer Dianne Runtz of Arnprior. “It’s just gorgeous here today,” she said, while with friends under the shade next to her camp trailer. “There’ll be lots of spectators. No charge to get in, but don’t bring noisemakers. And I think people really enjoy it.” Some of the competitions include halter confirmation, showmanship, pleasure driving and English jumping. Runtz is convinced caring for a horse is a fine hobby for young people. It teaches them responsibility; a living thing requires more care than a bicycle, she said. And, despite the popular perception, she said owning a horse is no more expensive than playing competitive hockey. Her one complaint about the venue is the need for security. She said young people steal and destroy property belonging to some of the 120 participants. It has gotten so bad that organizers have been forced to hire security. Other than that Runtz looks forward to the next show. The June Classic runs June 11 to 13. The big show is the Summer Sizzler in August.

Performing at the Carp event was, clockwise from the top, Ashley Dee of Kingston, Kim Weisenberg of Pembroke and Kanata’s Nicole Robert. The second show of the year is set for this weekend at the Carp Fairgrounds. Admission is free. Photos by Derek Dunn

Cougar sighting claimed near West Carleton area

Help is on the way!

was hunting in the field. She said she thought it might be either a wild cougar or one that had escaped from a zoo. Fewer deer and some fresh turkey kills in the White Lake area had made her wonder if a new predator had moved into the area, she said. Pembroke MNR information officer Doug Skeggs said he isn’t surprised, as his office has received cougar reports from the Arnprior area before, although not about this animal. “What we’ve been unable to do is verify any of them,” he said. Despite the sightings, the MNR has not received photographs or been able to find physical evidence the cougars actually existed. The MNR set up a night camera operation near Pembroke last fall to check into a reported cougar sighting, only to determine it was a neighbour’s large cat, he said. In all, about 40 infrared, digital motion and heat-detecting flash cameras were set up on trails near Pembroke and Kemptville deemed to be possible cougar habitat, but no cougars have surfaced to have their photographs taken.

Are there cougars in Eastern Ontario? A White Lake woman believes so after seeing what she thinks was the elusive animal just east of Arnprior. The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) isn’t ruling out the possibility, but says despite about a dozen calls a year from this area, officials haven’t been able to verify there are cougars about. Margaret Cairns was driving to her nursing job in Ottawa May 17 when she saw the animal. She had turned onto Highway 17 from White Lake Road, crossed the bridge and was in the vicinity of the Carleton Place turnoff about 6:30 a.m. when she saw a sudden movement in a field off to the right of the highway. Traffic was bumper to bumper, so Cairns got a good look at the large beige-brownish animal, which she says “appeared to look right at me.” “It was huge with a big head and a big tail,” she said. “It certainly wasn’t a coyote or a (domestic) cat. It was much bigger and much different.” Cairns said it appeared the animal

Coalition hikes to save South March Highlands JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com The Coalition for the Protection of South March Highlands hiked to Heron Pond on Sunday, May 30. Those who gathered in support of the coalition and those who just wanted to enjoy a warm afternoon walk, gathered to explore the natural beauty of the often-used mountain bike path. “This is an effort to protect the South March Highlands,” said team leader Paul Renaud. Adults walked a five-kilometre trail, while those with children walked a two-kilometre path with botanist Martha Webber. “The South March area is the most densely bio-diverse area in the City of Ottawa,” said Renaud. “In addition to providing habitats for 12 species-at-risk, this area is home to 423 native species of vascular plants, including 41 regionally significant species, 134 species of birds, over 30 species of mammals, and an uncataloged number of reptiles and insects. There are over 30 differentiated ecotypes of vegetation that comprise 10 distinct habitats – all packed into an area less than six square kilometres – and all within city limits.” Home to endangered species like the Blanding’s Turtle and Butternut trees, Renaud said he wants to see the Terry Fox Drive extension, which will run through the middle of the highlands, halted. “The area is recognized provincially as an area of natural and scientific interest for its life science value and for its unique wetland complex,” he said. The road extension has been fasttracked due to the promise of federal and provincial infrastructure funds. “We cannot allow deadlines for stimulus money from the federal government to be used as justification of reckless development of our most bio-diverse natural area,” said the coalition in a news release. “The ecological costs of the Terry

Eli El-Chantiry is surrounded by supporters such as his wife, Maha, to his left, and assistant Lisa McGee to his right. Some near down at city hall were hoping he would take a run at the mayor’s chair. Alex Aronec is also vying for the Ward 5 position.

That while Aronec is a full time student, with two part time jobs, and helping look after a disabled parent was able to register before someone whose job is on the line. “I’m not going to try and take any direct shots here,” Aronec said. “I would like to say I am pleased the incumbent is running. He will be able to be held accountable based on his past actions up to the present by the electorate.” Aronec added that now voters have a chance to question El-Chantiry on his handling of the Constance Bay beach issue, the coyote population issue, his handling of community groups (like the Carleton landowners, community associations), the green box implementation, and snowplowing and removal. “I believe that now he is officially in the race, and has all his funding given to him by the city (carried over from the previous election) that the residents will be given one of the more intense David vesus Goliath situations in the city.” First elected in 2003 and again in 2006, El-Chantiry defeated J.P. Dorion last time out with more than 67 per cent of the vote. He has won

on a pro-amalgamation platform, as a known Liberal backer, in a largely conservative ward. El-Chantiry was rumoured to have considered running for mayor on a right-of-centre platform, provided Larry O’Brien opted not to run. It would have made more than a few politicos at city hall happy. Although not living in the ward, El-Chantiry is owner and operator of the Lighthouse Restaurant in Constance Bay, making him likely the only councillor at city hall who flips eggs most Saturday mornings. Over the years, El-Chantiry has volunteered and financially supported many organizations in West Carleton. As a councillor he has served as chair of the police services board, a member of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, Corporate Services and Economic Development Committee, and Long Range Financial Plan Sub-Committee. Born in Lebanon, El-Chantiry, 53, rarely loses an opportunity to thank Canadian peacekeepers for their work. He was raised the second of six kids on a family farm, before coming to Canada at the age of 18. He Eli El-Chantiry registers for the 2010 municipal race with his wife Maha at his side. and wife Maha met in Ottawa.

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption. #3675 Jasper Jasper, who was brought to the shelter in March in terrible condition, is now healthy and ready to find a good home. The four-month-old neutered male had been a stray for several months and his fur was badly matted and full of burrs, requiring a few patches of hair to be shaved. Jasper is a friendly cat who likes attention and can be quite affectionate. Jasper is tolerant of most cats, but gets along best with females. He is very outgoing and curious, he likes to explore. Jasper can play rough and would be best suited in an adult home. # 3689 Weir Do you have room in your home for a cat with lots of personality? Weir is an 11-month-old, neutered male who was brought to the shelter with his brothers to find a new home. He is just a big kitten at heart. He enjoys playing, climbing, exploring and looking for trouble. Weir is an outgoing cat, he likes to be the centre of attention and is affectionate and friendly. He loves to be held and snuggled and will climb onto your shoulders if you won’t pick him up. Weir is great with other cats, and would be best suited in a home with at least one other cat, he cannot be in a home with dogs. He is gentle and very sweet and would make a great friend for children.l

Karen McCrimmon, a 31-year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, became the Liberal candidate for member of parliament in the ward of Carleton-Mississippi Mills on May 27. McCrimmon defeated Bev Millar, Scott Simser and Bernie Muzeen in the race to replace departing Liberal candidate Justin McKinnon. The race was tight, with all four candidates having strong support among the people in attendance, but McCrimmon’s support base was the loudest. “I have been to so many desperate places and every time I come back I’m so grateful to be Canadian,” said McCrimmon, who retired from the armed forces as a Lt.-Col. and currently owns her own small business. “We have to protect our democracy, our rights and our freedom and I can offer that to people.” Her supporters agreed wholeheartedly. “Karen would make an excellent MP, she’s

After Simser, Bernie Muzeen, who was nominated by McKinnon, went up to the podium. “When I came to Canada I learned two unique Canadian traits, generosity and humanitarianism,” said Muzeen, who was born in London, England. “My experiences have given me the determination to never allow myself or others to be the subject of discrimination.” McCrimmon spoke last. “We’re all here for one reason and that is to replace Gordon O’Connor with a Liberal,” said McCrimmon. “Real leadership is about finding a way to get people engaged and to make this a place where our children can build a future.” After McCrimmon was announced as the winner, the other three nominees withdrew to make the choice unanimous and pledged to continue working together for the Liberal party. “I will continue doing what I’ve been doing for

CLA says patent grants give landowners many rights The preservation of individual property rights may exist in historical documents known as Crown Land Patent Grants. These Patent Grants, in reality a contract between the Crown and the landowner, give the landowner of today protection against any invasive bylaws or legislation pertaining to the land, those at the annual general meeting of the Carleton Landowners Association (CLA) were told on May 20. Elizabeth Marshall of the Collingwood area, secretary of the Ontario Landowners Association and a researcher with the Association’s Patent Committee, said at the meeting at the former Goulbourn municipal building at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville that a Crown Land Patent Grant gives today’s rural landowner control over his or her land and the legal authority to defy intrusive legislation such as that protecting wetlands or endangered species. She said that the Patent Grants set out the original conditions pertaining to the ownership of the land, with a 60 year period provided for the Crown to change or revoke the Patent Grant. This has never happened and so today’s landowner, as an heir or assign of the original landowner, has inherited these rights as set out in the Patent Grant. This is unreserved ownership of the land except, in some cases, for certain features that may be listed in a particular patent such as gold, copper, iron, silver, white pine and navigable water. She urged all rural landowners, even if they own only a part of the original land grant, to apply to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources for a certified copy of the Crown Land Patent Grant pertaining to the property. This costs $50. All that is needed is knowing the lot, concession and original township where the property sits. Marshall contended that while provincial governments can pass legislation pertaining to public lands, they cannot pass any legislation related to privately held land because of these Patent Grants which clearly provide for land ownership with no strings attached, as it were. This was the most major revelation at the annual general meeting. But receiving much

nization, which began seven years ago with four people sitting around a table, has now grown to 21 county associations in the province. He said that the provincial organization has to become more structured and is now looking to hire a communications officer who would also do fundraising. Those at the meeting also heard from Mary Campbell, mayor of McNab/Braeside in the Arnprior area, who

lamented that all provincial legislation these days is written from an urban point of view. However, she urged people to work from within the system to bring about change, advocating that they get involved in municipal politics. “We have more potential power than we ever had since 1850,” she said about municipalities, noting their new powers related to economic growth, environmental planning and other areas of interest. Deborah Madill, communications director for the Ontario Landowners Association, who also spoke at the meeting, added her voice to the need for the organization to become more structured. “We really have to be structured,” she said. “We really have to be strong.” She said that membership numbers have to grow and the organization has to become strong, lamenting that if this does not happen, rural landowners are going to lose everything. “We have to go out there and kick butt,” she said.

Having a war chest to legally back up protests to infringements on property rights was endorsed by Mark Tijssen, a Carlsbad Springs area resident who is now battling the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources following an incident in which he killed a pig on his property and then allowed some of it to be taken off the property. He lamented the costs, ranging from $45,000 to $100,000 which he could be facing if he decides to fight the government in court. If he agrees to a plea, his fine will only be a couple of thousand dollars or so. He praised the Carleton Landowners Association for providing moral support and advice to him but he lamented the group’s financial inability to help in any legal battles. “What we’re missing is the ability to take on these legal fees,” he said. He said that the provincial government would be more worried if the Landowners group had a war chest for such legal battles.

“That’s my concern,” he said, “is that we are not well armed.” He urged the Carleton Landowners Association to go a step beyond just providing moral support in cases of injustice against property rights and develop a financial clout that would enable those involved in clear cases of injustice to be defended. Carleton Landowners Association president Tom Black of Goulbourn said that having such a war chest is something that those involved with the Association have dreamed about but the problem is that there needs to be someone to fill such a war chest with money. Jack MacLaren of West Carleton, the current president of the Ontario Landowners Association and a former president of the Carleton Landowners Association, in his remarks at the meeting, agreed with the feeling that the Association needs a war chest. “You’re right,” he told Black and Tijssen, “we need a war chest.” He noted that the orga-

Cougars avoid cameras Continued from page 7 Skeggs said that despite regular cougar reports coming in from across Ontario, including 10 to 12 a year in Renfrew County, the oldest confirmed cougar sighting goes back 100 years. He said the Eastern cougar was once native to the area, but if any cougars are found in the region now, they would be most likely escaped or released animals, he said. The MNR does encourage people to report sightings, he said. “We do take reports seriously, especially if there is fresh physical evidence to scrutinize.” If the area hasn’t been trampled over by humans, wildlife officials will look for such things as tracks, fur samples and scat, he added. “Give us a call if you think you see a cougar. But most often, you’ll find it’s not a cougar.” A cougar’s most distinguishing char-

acteristic is its long tail, he noted. Skeggs said he has never heard any reports of a cougar attacking a person in Eastern Ontario. It’s also unlikely changes in deer and turkey populations are being caused by cougars, he added. The Valley deer population, which slipped after two tough winters, will likely rebound this year, he said. Other recent cougar sightings have been reported in Gatineau Park, Carlsbad Springs, Peterborough and Charleston Lake While the MNR is non-commital about the existence of cougars, the Ontario Puma Foundation suggests there about 550 of the animals in Ontario. The puma and the eastern cougar foundations stress that most encounters with cougars are not dangerous and urge people to resist calling 9-1-1 if one is sighted. The groups have advice on how to coexist at www.easterncougar.org.

COMMENTARY

Councillors hoping non action will pay off Once again, I find myself compelled to have to express my disbelief with the actions, or in this case, non actions of city hall. Various media outlets have stated in the last week that council will be voting on whether to impose a construction moratorium on home development in the west end. The situation is apparently due to the fact that with the growth of the city in the west, that the infrastructure, in this case sewage related, is at capacity. One article goes on to say that this is the site which was at least in part responsible for the basement flooding in Glen Cairn last summer[ about 11 months ago] and elsewhere that “the city is acting quickly”. I, perhaps naively, had assumed the city’s Planning and Environment Committee ensured that the city planned. It should ensure that infrastructure is in place prior to growth occurring and capable of handling some contingency, not necessarily the storm of the century, but a major one. Ms. Feltmate has stated she supports the freeze. As Vice Chair of the Planning and Environment Committee and the current member of council for Kanata South, she, of all people should have ensured the situation never got to the point where it is now. The Planners have to listen to the builders as they are the ones who through their businesses reflect the demands of the city citizens. If people did not have the desire to live in the western parts of the city, then people would not purchase housing there. All of those people who have purchased new homes have paid the city a development charge, part of which is to support, surprise, their areas infrastructure. This also includes the ability to handle developments that are approved but not yet for sale. Should the developers be upset/ Definitely! Should they be surprised about the lack of foresight? Not really. This, I suspect is a ‘tip of the iceburg’ issue. If I was a resident of the affected area, I would be on the phone to all of city council asking why this has happened and why, after a year, a

Thomas cthomas@rickassociates.com the contract put out for bid? When? Has it been awarded? If it has, tell me when and where because I can find no record of it in the 2009 awarded contracts. October 25 is the date when you have the opportunity to express, via your vote, your satisfaction or lack or it, for the City of Ottawa municipal government. If you are happy with a city council that works the way they have for the last 4 years. The ones who come up with Ottawatermobiles, who treat their ward like mini fiefdoms, who dither and fret over minutia, pat themselves on the back at every media opportunity and yet, using this as an example, let the planning and implementation of infrastructure which supports growth of the city, its tax base, and improves the quality of life of all, then vote for the incumbent in your ward. If you want change, a city councillor who works for his or her constituents and the city, instead of being out getting photographed or sound bited, I recommend you take a solid look at what each non incumbent brings to the table, what they stand for. When I volunteer my time to help the city, I do it because the organization or cause is important to me, not to use the cause to leverage my profile. Every time you see an incumbent in the media, ask yourself whether it is for self promotion or are they actually doing productive work for the city, and yes, a number are. Remember, they are still employed as City Council members and your representatives until the new Council is sworn in on December 1, 2010. The upcoming election should in my opinion be based on the issues, not who will win as Mr. or Ms. Congeniality. I am not and would not be so presumptuous as to tell you who to or not to vote for. In a democracy, we all are able to decide who we want to represent us. All that I ask is that you do use your privilege to vote in October and do so for the candidate you feel would do the best job for you and the city.

Lake surveys will help manage fisheries Provincial fisheries crews will be out on Ontario’s lakes this summer, monitoring lake health and fish populations, and checking for invasive species. If you’re on a lake that is being monitored and see Ministry of Natural Resources buoys, please don’t lift the nets or buoys, and avoid recreational activities between and around the buoys. All nets will be clearly marked. Information gathered through the surveys will be used to help make decisions about managing fisheries, including setting seasons and size limits for anglers. QUICK FACTS • These lake surveys are part of a

five-year cycle to collect information for fisheries management. Over five years, the ministry will monitor approximately 1,000 lakes across the Province of Ontario. • Crews will conduct netting surveys on 32 lakes in central and eastern Ontario. • Lake surveys are done by Ministry of Natural Resources staff with the support of summer students hired from local colleges and universities. • About 1.27 million anglers fish in Ontario each year, spending more than $2.5 billon dollars annually on fisheries-related products and services in the province.

CONST. PETER JEON OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE Take extra care when driving along rural roadways with freshly laid gravel. It can really pull you in unforeseen directions. Also, when transitioning from asphalt to gravel surfaces, remember to proceed with caution and always stay in control of your vehicle. Just last week, a vehicle was traveling north along Peter Robinson Road at 70 kph when it suddenly veered across the southbound lane and drove into the ditch and then crashed into a culvert. The driver walked away from the accident unharmed; however, the impact caused extensive damage to the vehicle’s undercarriage, axle and tires. No charges were laid and it was noted that the road surface was covered in a fresh layer of gravel. KIDS DEFINITION OF FUNNY? Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Friday, May 28, police were called out to March and Klondike roads for a report of a suspicious incident. A passerby came across a load of traffic cones scattered all over the road and was unsure of its purpose. Police attended and determined that cone pileup was the result of kids trying to be funny. The cones were replaced and order was restored to the traffic world. CAN’T BEAR IT ANYMORE? Then, why not cut down his honey tree?

A black bear that frequented a woodlot on McCord Drive was spotted climbing his favourite honey tree by officers who were called in to investigate an animal complaint. Realizing his secret honey stash was exposed, the bear scampered back down the tree and skedaddled back into the woods. Police apprised MNR of the situation and advised the owner of possibly cutting down the tree to curb the bear’s habit. LEFTHAND TURNS Over the past few weeks there have been several collisions in the Ward-5 area, some very serious, resulting from misjudged or hesitated left hand turns. Just a couple of weeks ago a teenage driver was T-boned by a dump truck that was travelling along Dunrobin Road. Last week, a soccer dad was forced to aggressively brake in order to avoid slamming into a car that had made a sudden left hand turn onto March Road from Bearhill Road. On speaking with the dad after the close encounter, it was learned that he had an inkling the driver was going to attempt the turn at the very last second. Pressing him for clues on how he came to that suspicion, he said, “based on the vehicle’s lurching motions [repetitive rolling and braking in the intersection], I could tell that the driver was impatient, but at the same time he was very hesitant on making that final decision due to the heavy oncoming traffic along March Road and its approach speeds on the hill.” See OPS Page 21 393084

Groundhogs and Whitetailed Deer are more common today When we think of habitat, images of magnificent forests often arise. Damp cedar swamps, shady maple woods, and whispering pine forests merge and blend, creating a mosaic of tree-dominated habitats in our region. However, our region was originally cloaked in a much greater expanse of forest, much now replaced by agricultural, industrial, and urban development. But forests are still present and we are fortunate, for in southwestern and extreme eastern Ontario, very little remains of what once was there. A loss of forest results in a decrease in woodland animals. Northern Goshawks, Woodland Jumping Mice and a host of other creatures are found

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

today in significantly lower numbers than they were before the landscape was altered. But animals that require open space have benefitted from the change. Groundhogs and White-tailed Deer are more common today than they were historically. Certain birds have also increased. Mourning Doves, Savannah Sparrows and Killdeer are very common in land once dominated by towering trees. That open space is called “field” but, as every farmer can tell you,

there are different types of fields. Some fields are expanses of exposed soil that was turned to mix nutrients and oxygen into the ground. In spring tilled fields are habitat for nesting Horned Larks and Killdeer. In fall they provide resources for birds migrating from the tundra. Lapland Longspurs, American Pipits, and northern plovers fuel up in this habitat on their way south. Some fields are let go wild, and are covered in a mixture of seed-bearing plants. Many are non-native, such as clover that adds nitrogen to the soil. These weedy fields provide food for Meadow Voles, which in turn are food for Northern Harriers, Short-eared Owls, Red Foxes and Coyotes. Then there are fields that are covered in tall grasses. Hay fields provide habitat for grassland birds such as Bobolinks and Savannah Sparrows. Other fields are grazed by livestock. See DISCOVER page 22

Discover the natural pleasures of a ‘field day’ Continued from Page 20 These short-grass meadows best suit the needs of Eastern Bluebirds and the endangered Loggerhead Shrikes. When one visits these habitats at dawn, certain trends can be observed. Ploughed fields lack trees so Horned Larks sing their territorial songs from the sky; males broadcast their stuttered claims from more than a hundred feet above the ground. Grassland birds, such as Savannah Sparrows and Eastern Meadowlarks, had scattered trees and shrubs in their natural savannah habitat, so today they sing their hearts out from atop isolated trees and fence posts.

The introduction of open terrain has unquestionably increased the biodiversity of this region, but too much of anything is not a good thing. Fortunately in our region, unlike much of southern Ontario, we have retained a pretty good balance of field versus forest, allowing a great mixture of species to live side by side. If you have been overlooking fields as habitats, you might consider exploring one soon. If you do, I am sure you will soon discover the pleasures of a “field day!” The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca

Carp to host Gil Read Memorial fastball tournament CHRIS READ Special to WCR

CARP - The Gil Read Memorial Foundation would like to invite you to our third annual fastball tournament. This year’s tournament will take place July 23 to 25 at the Carp Fairgrounds. The 12-team tournament will feature top teams from around the area as well as teams from Quebec and other cities from across Ontario, who will be battling it out for $2,500 in prize money.

There will be a barbecue/beer tent onsite and lots of parking. The Gil Read Memorial Foundation was established in 2007 after the sudden passing of Gil Read. The purpose of the foundation is to help less fortunate kids compete in sports across the City of Ottawa. Our hope is that kids who cannot afford skates to play hockey or shoulder pads to play football will now be able to do so. Gil, a long-time coach and volunteer from the Ottawa region, led three teams

to the Canadian championships in 1993, 1995 and 1999 and also coached Team Ontario to gold medals at the 1997, 2001 and 2005 Canada Summer Games. Gil was a member of Softball Ontario’s coaching committee from 1995 to 2002, also served on Softball Canada’s coaching committee and was a Softball Canada master course conductor from 1994 to 2006. In addition to all his contributions to the coaching community, Gil also served as a member of Softball Canada’s initiation committee, and was Canada’s team

Skinny Love’s Lucky Day Normally when we are loading the sheep onto the truck for market, I tell them there is always the chance that someone will buy them as a pet. They go to auction, strut through the ring, and who knows? They don’t always end up in someone’s freezer, with a recipe for moussaka taped to their side. You don’t believe me? Well, remember Skinny Love? Now I have a real story to tell the sheep about the possibility of life after the farm. Skinny was born a multiple, and she was what you might consider a runt of the litter. But she was surviving. When the weather got warm enough to let mom and lambs out onto the pasture, however, Skinny promptly lost track of her family. She didn’t cry much. If she had, perhaps her mother would have identified herself. But sometimes you end up with a mother who is not Diana exactly maternal. One who loses count of her own offspring. In any case, Skinny spent most of her energy each day trotting after one ewe or another, blending in with the other lambs, and attempting to steal milk. It took all the energy she had. Soon Skinny was tired out. And she had that horrible hunched-over look that lambs get when they just aren’t getting enough to fill their tummies. Skinny hadn’t been given a bottle since birth, so she didn’t know what it was. The good thing about a weak lamb, however, is that they are easy to catch. Every morning I would sneak up on Skinny and tackle her, then assist her with the bottle until she caught on. Luckily she caught on fast. Soon she was running up to me when she saw me approach with the bottle. I fed her morning and night, and that seemed to be the added little bit that she needed to keep her going, on top of what she managed to steal every day. Then came the day when she didn’t need me anymore. She would

still approach when she saw me, but she wasn’t interested in the milk. She was on grass now. She was a big girl. And she still wouldn’t let me catch and cuddle her. I was proud that she had thrived. Another little success story on the farm. But this is not the end of the Skinny Love story. Last week, someone who had read my story about Skinny Love in the paper called us up and announced that they would like to buy a lamb. Now, I normally stay out of the whole lamb-marketing business. I try not to name them, and I don’t even look at their ear tag numbers. I don’t want to know who is leaving. The Farmer is careful not to sell any of the ones that he sees me regularly carting around in my arms. He knows my favourites. But this was a new situation. The caller Fisher was not looking for a lamb for meat. She wanted it as a pet. And she was buying it for a neighbour, as a companion to the lamb she already had. The Farmer asked me if I had any lambs that would suit. I had one in mind. When the ladies arrived at the farm, they followed me out to the pasture and watched as I called for Skinny. Soon, a head popped up and the little lamb came bounding over. She wasn’t the whitest, fluffiest, stockiest lamb of the bunch, but with a little TLC I’m sure she will clean up just fine. The Farmer cut a whole in the bottom of a feed sack and we put Skinny’s head through it. The lamb sat quietly on the woman’s lap in her little feed-bag dress and gave a shiver, as if she was anticipating adventure. I hope everything goes well for all concerned at Skinny’s new home. And if you have a moment, new owner of Skinny the lamb, would you give me a call or send me an email just to let me know how she is doing? She was one of my favourites.

TANYA MILLER Pinhey’s Point Help bring Ottawa’s history to life at Riverfest! In celebration of the Ottawa River’s past, present and future, Pinhey’s Point Historic Site is holding their annual celebration of the city’s renowned waterway on Sunday, June 27. In order to make this fest the best one yet, volunteers are needed to guide tours, facilitate workshops, supervise activities, and greet visitors. Daniele Hamonic, volunteer coordinator for Ottawa’s heritage unit, said that whatever your interests may be, there’s a role for all volunteers at Riverfest. This will be Katie McCollough’s second time volunteering at Riverfest. McCollough said she returned because it was so much fun the first time. “I thoroughly enjoyed myself,” said McCollough. “It’s great for families and my grandchildren think it’s a great place to play.” Pinhey’s Point is an ideal setting for Riverfest, as the 88-acre historic site and estate is located right on the scenic shores of the Ottawa

Pinhey’s Point Historic Site needs volunteers for the Sunday, June 27 Riverfest. Photo submitted River, at 270 Pinhey’s Point Road in Dunrobin Shores. McCollough said that although many people living outside the west end don’t know about Pinhey’s Point, she added that this unique way to experience Ottawa’s history is not to be missed. “I haven’t lived in Ottawa that long, so I like learning about the heritage and history of the area,” she said. During Riverfest, visitors can explore the site’s bountiful landscape, paddle along the river, listen to

voyageur stories, and partake in discussions about preserving the Ottawa River. The festivities take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. McCollough said Riverfest is “one great big huge festival” and always draws large crowds of people. She said that volunteering at Riverfest is always a great time because of the variety of positions available. “It’s neat to run around in costumes of yester-year,” said McCollough.

“[Last time I volunteered], I thought one lady had walked out of the graveyard because she looked so authentic!” Hamonic said volunteers are critical to the event’s success. “Since Riverfest only happens once a year, we’re very grateful to our volunteers who ensure the weekend goes off without a hitch,” she said. McCollough said she recommends volunteering at Riverfest because it’s a lot of fun, and a great chance to get involved with the community. “I just love it up there,” McCollough said about Pinhey’s Point. Aside from the events that the museum puts on, Pinhey’s Point Historic Site’s scenic views, historic buildings, crumbling ruins and rolling green hills come together to create one of the most spectacular places in Ottawa to relax, learn and explore. To volunteer for Riverfest, please contact Daniele Hamonic at Daniele.Hamonic@ottawa.ca or 613-5802424 ex.19042. Visit Ottawa.ca/museums for further information.
