City readies for sale of Carp airport; expect hundreds of homes, an industrial park and many jobs DEREK DUNN

With the city one step closer to selling the Carp Airport, John Phillips’ dream may soon take flight. “We’re very pleased, very pleased,” Phillips said. “It’s been a complicated deal. But it means we can finally move forward with our plans.” His West Capital Developments has managed to turn the airport into a $265,000-a-year loss for the city into a “break even” venture since taking over eight years ago. But that was just one criterion he needed to fulfill before the city would agree to sell. According to a city staff report, others include: • New investment of about $5.5 million

has been brought to the field including the Roly Armitage Airport Terminal and a new Helicopter Transport Services facility; • The construction of Roly Armitage Airport Terminal provides services for pilots such as washrooms and a cafeteria, which has significantly raised the profile and interest in the airport and ensured retention of tenants who may otherwise have gone elsewhere; • The construction of a new 6,000-sq.ft. aircraft hangar attached to the Airport Terminal provides services for itinerant aircraft; • The signing of existing tenants to long-term leases and significant additional leasing of Core Airport Area lands ; See ‘AIRPORT’ Page 6

Sens captain aims to make Ottawa a leader in mental health NEVIL HUNT

Ottawa Senators captain and West Carleton resident Daniel Alfredsson has goals for the team’s new season, and he thinks the city of Ottawa should have a goal too. “We can be a leading community,” Alfredsson said of mental health programs and the acceptance of mental ALFREDSSON health issues in the city. Alfredsson was speaking at the unveiling of anew fundraiser for mental health; the Bell

SENSational Ride & Glide. He made the announcement while seated on a stationary bike in the Sens gym following a practice on Oct. 7. “My sister has battled mental health issues,” the Sens captain said. “This is very important to me.” Alfredsson has been the face of the You Know Who I Am campaign, partnered with the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health. The campaign aims to get people talking about mental health issues, and hopes to remove any stigma still associated with seeking help. Alfredsson said the campaign “has helped people get help,” and has also brought out many Ottawa residents – Sens fans or not – to help raise funds. The SENSational Ride & Glide is sponsored by the

Former Constance Bay resident Giselle Minns is nominated for an Independent Music Award.


Opera singer Giselle Minns will make her way down the red carpet in Hollywood next week, hopefully to accept an award. No, Hollywood’s awards season has not come early, nor will she be going home with an Oscar that night. But the British-born singer, who called Constance Bay home for five years until this past June, is instead nominated for Best Female Vocalist at the Los Angeles Independent Music Awards. “It is fantastic to be recognized by the music industry,” said Minns. She has been nominated for her 2008 album Turning Circles. “It’s not opera at all,” Minns said of her album. “I decided that I wanted to write my own stuff.” The result was a merging of contemporary electronic music with her classicallytrained voice and strings, a format she has dubbed classical electronica. “I used my computer and I wrote everything in full score,” she said, with her husband helping out with producing. This is not the first time that Minns has been nominated by the same body. In 2008, she was nominated for some music work she had done, and she found herself in Hollywood. She said she loved the

When she and her husband went to check in at their hotel, they were asked to wait a few minutes in the bar while the finishing touches were put on their room. They went to the bar, and Minns had a fan-freakout moment. “I was not cool,” she admitted sheepishly. “I was like, ‘Oh, look, there’s Colin Farrell!’” Minns has performed as an opera singer all over Europe, alongside the likes of such musical luminaries like Spanish tenor Jose Carreras of The Three Tenors. She has also lived in Italy and France, where she was a singer in residence at the opera house in Strasbourg, near the German border. She even performed at the European Parliament. Minns has been playing the piano since she was five years old, while adding cello and singing to her repertoire in time. “I love the drama and the stories (of opera),” she said, falling in love with the music and life of Greek-American opera singer Maria Callas (1923-1977). Minns moved to Canada because she wanted

Unwily coyote loses battle with horses OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE Weekly activity report for Oct. 1 to 7. On Oct. 1, a homeowner on Greenland Road called police after she discovered a coyote in her barn. Upon hearing a commotion in her horse barn, the homeowner rushed out to investigate and found the wounded coyote lying on the floor. It was surmised that the coyote was trampled as the horses acted in self-defence. Once the horses were removed from the barn, patrol and animal control officers carefully moved the coyote into a field and humanely put it down. GOT A TRAFFIC COMPLAINT? Then report it to police. For any ongoing traffic concerns in your community call the OPS call centre at 613-236-1222, ext.7300 and give them the details of what you’re experiencing. Remember, you are the eyes and ears in the community. On Oct. 2, a complainant called police to report an ongoing problem with vehicles failing to stop at an intersection in the Carp village. Police attended the intersection of Deugo Street at Donald B Munro Drive and issued several tickets to drivers for failing to stop. HOUSE FOR SALE NOT FOR RENT – FRAUD Much to the owner’s surprise, the house that she had up for sale on Grapevine was also up for rent by a mysterious owner claiming to be “doing God’s work” in Africa. While visiting her house in Fitzroy Harbour, the owner took note of a man circling her property. Thinking he was a potential customer she decided to

take the opportunity to show him around. However, while engaging him in conversation she became perplexed by his excitement in what he claimed was a low cost rental house. Confused, the owner probed him for more details—while surfing the Internet for rental homes in Ottawa area he came across an ad on Kijiji stating that a house on Hemlo Crescent was up for rent and that perspective clients were to correspond with the landlord via email. At the request of the landlord, the man sent off his credit history. Since that chance encounter with the unsuspecting renter, the real owner filed a complaint with Kijiji and had the ad immediately removed. As for the renter, he was instructed to get in contact with his banks and credit agencies as soon as possible to have his accounts monitored for any suspicious activity. As for the other 429 interested renters who responded to the Kijiji ad – Caveat emptor. FUNNY FARM On Oct. 7, officers were dispatched to a conservation area on Dunrobin Road after a 911caller happened upon a bunch of roosters, chickens, pigs, goats and the likes running amok on the roadway. The caller was concerned for the animals’ safety and that of the passing motorists. Quickly arriving on scene, officers hopped into action rounding up the animals and returning them to the funny farm.

The marijuana plants, which were grown in black plastic pots, were removed from the property and turned in for destruction. Suspicious Oct. 1: Berry Side Road, Constance Lake: A complainant called the police to report a suspicious boating incident that occurred over the past several nights on Constance Lake. The complainant reported that an aluminum fishing boat with a flashing light and two males floated past her property each night and appeared to be looking at her property. On Oct. 1 at around 8:30 p.m., the same small boat slowly drove past her property using an outboard motor and a search light to scan her property for unknown reason. If anyone can shed any light on this incident please call the West Carleton CPC at 613-236-1222, ext.2982.

These many steps led to an Oct. 6 Economic and Development Committee decision to sell the airport for $1.5 million. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry sits on the committee, and calls the deal a good news story for the entire city. “We want them to create jobs and an aerospace industry so local people can live and work in the community,” he said. “It didn’t happen overnight. He’s not going in foolishly and neither is the city.” Phillip’s plan is to offer two services on top of the regular airport operations: a residential component and industrial complex.

The residential aspect will see some 329 lots house a variety of detached, semi-detached and other lodgings. Phillips said all income levels will be welcome, not just wealthy individuals with private airplanes. “We are going to have mechanics and other people working here who will live here, too.” The industrial component will see a variety of aerospace companies set up shop on the 180acre property.

Norm Sterling missing from waste debate

Airport sale is great news, but ...

To the editor: No doubt John Phillips and Eli El-Chantiry have worked hard over the last eight years to prepare the Carp Airport for sale. The West Capital Developments owner and the West Carleton-March councillor have met countless times with the shared goal of turning money-losing operation for the city into a winning one for private industry. The decision to OK the sale, made by a city committee and due for final approval by council of the whole, is proof their goal is within reach. However. There is an issue; an issue that will grow louder the more successful Phillips becomes. Noise. Sue Prior lives near Acorn Creek, close to Carp Road and Richardson Side Road. In other words across from the Carp Airport. She is upset about a new helicopter training program that has the aircraft disturbing her quiet, rural lifestyle. “They fly extremely low, are flying 24/7, flashing in windows, dropping things that shake the ground,” Prior said, adding that everyone from her place to Shirley’s Bay are affected. She asks only that her family is granted the same respect shown to families living near Ottawa International Airport. We won’t pretend to have an answer that will satisfy Prior or others holding the same opinion. In all likelihood the Carp Airport is going to grow much busier than it has been since the days when it was run by the military. The opportunity to welcome another 329 families into the area – expected when the fly-in neighbourhood is complete – along with a thriving cluster of aerospacefocused companies, including training schools, can’t be passed up. Then there’s the jobs, local jobs, where people can commute less than 45 minutes one-way. We may be the nation’s capital, Fat City, but the struggle to obtain and keep jobs should never be far from our minds. To see Phillips and El-Chantiry working hard to create jobs in West Carleton is deserving of a hats off. Let’s see Carp and surrounding areas continue to prosper.

Remembering troops of today and yesterday To the editor: Remembrance Day is approaching. Every day we see items about our men and women in Afghanistan. War and loss are on our minds this time of year. In 2010, Canada’s military history continues to unfold and this year, the Fitzroy Township Historical Society will present a salute to our military history. On Friday, Oct. 15, guest speaker Professor Tim Cook of Carleton University and the Canadian War Museum will talk about Canada in the First World War and especially Sir Arthur Currie, Commander in Chief of the Canadian corps in 1917-18. Currie was a remark-

Established in 1980

able figure who is unique among the great commanders of the Great War in that he rose from the rank of mere battery commander in the Canadian Militia to command the elite force on the western front, the Canadian Corps. He was surrounded by controversy through much of his career. Was he a crude butcher or a skilled commander? After the war he was attacked by parents who felt that he had wasted their sons’ lives by attacking the German positions on the last day of the war. He was relentlessly pursued by personal enemies in the House of Commons right into the 1920’s. His listeners will be

interested to hear Dr. Cook’s interpretations of the various crises that formed Currie, made him famous and darkened his reputation through the war. Many men and at least one woman from Fitzroy Township served under Sir Arthur Currie. On Oct. 15, the Township Historical Society will remember them as we listen to Professor Cook.

Re: Where is Jim Watson on the Carp Dump? I was amused to see Norm Sterling’s ad asking Jim Watson to state his position on the expansion of the Carp dump, and saying that it is important to his constituents in the Stittsville area and throughout Ottawa. Indeed, what happens to our trash should be what’s important to the citizens and politicians of Ottawa and Ontario. On Sept. 30, the Carleton Landowners Association hosted an information meeting on Energy from Waste technologies. We had several knowledgeable speakers including Peter Robertson, former mayor of Brampton, which boasts the only incinerator in the province. All Ontario MPPs were invited to the meeting. Mr. Sterling did not RSVP to our email and when contacted by telephone, his office staff promised to get back to us. We are still waiting for a reply. Protesting against the expansion of the Carp dump is shortsighted and pure political posturing. The Carp Landfill used to receive Ottawa’s industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) waste. It is now trucked to the United States. More than 80 per cent of our ICI waste ends up in a landfill somewhere. Even with the green bin program, more than 50 per cent of our residential waste goes to the landfill at Trail Road. What happens when that landfill site fills up in 10 or 20 years? It was very clear from the information meeting on Sept. 30, that the citizens of Ottawa want the City and the Province to work together to implement a sustainable solution to our municipal and ICI waste. Mr. Sterling, where do you stand on energy from waste technologies? Diversion is not the answer.

Soccer clubs pitch in for merger


BETTER EXPERIENCE “We believe this is going to enhance the soccer experience,” Goulbourn president Brian Mason told about 45 people who attended an information meeting about the proposed merger in Stittsville on Oct. 7. This information meeting and another in Kanata were held prior to last week’s merger vote in order to respond to any concerns or questions from members of the existing soccer clubs. In a recent letter to members of both clubs, the two presidents, Mason and Kanata president Andrew Pope, outlined the reasons for the proposed merger. “We believe that there is a better way to deliver soccer to our mem-

It’s still a while before spring 2011, but soccer plans are underway. The Goulbourn Soccer Club and the Kanata Soccer Club have merged into the West Ottawa Soccer Club. Players in West Carleton will only be affected if they play on a competitive team. For 2011, the West Carleton Soccer Club (WCSC) has decided to field its youth competitive teams out of the new West Ottawa organization, but to maintain its operation of the WCSC house league and adult programs. The newly-merged West Ottawa Soccer Club will have 7,300 members and a $2-million operating budget and $760,000 in cash reserves.

This work is estimated to take up to 10 weeks to complete. At the Stittsville information meeting, a formal presentation was followed by 90 minutes of questions from those in the audience. In the first year after the merger, there will be no change in where existing teams play or the leagues in which they play. However, a committee will be formed which will look at what is best moving forward.

October 14 2010 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

West Carleton competitive players will switch to West Ottawa for 2011


My farm journal I’m going to start reading the annual Farmer’s Almanac online. They seem to be more accurate than the weekly weather forecast. The Almanac predicted a 30degree summer and they were right. They said it was going to be a wet fall – with 23 days of rain in September I’d say they were right on the money. Now the Almanac is calling for a cold, dry winter. Not the winter of choice for a farmer. Actually, I don’t know anyone who would appreciate that kind of winter. Snow insulates and so, much as we complain about it, it’s a good thing. And it gives us something to play in and keeps the snowplow operators happy. If it’s a dry winter, our water to the barn will freeze, like it did two years ago. I had to haul buckets of water out to the cows twice a day – have you any idea how much those things drink? More than once I would stagger out to the barnyard under the weight of two full water buckets only to have an impatient Betty knock me on my butt into the snow. Many farmers keep a farm journal to keep track of the weather patterns and what they do around the farm each sea-


hood fascination with the Little House on the Prairie book series, detailing the hard life of the pioneers, I think stories about the lives of farmers in Eastern Ontario at the end of the 19th century would be equally impressive. My Farmer has documented life through a collection of lists. He has a clipboard with the attendance list, menu and details of every family Thanksgiving dinner he has hosted for the past several years.



Diana Fisher son. Quite often it was the farmwife who did the writing in years past, as she typically spent more time in the house. On the Fisher farm, this Accidental Farmwife column tends to be our farm journal. We look up past issues in my scrapbook to see when we let the rams out, when we medicated the sheep last, etc. I do have another book for writing down important dates and of course we have the lambing journals for marking down who gave birth to whom, etc. I would love to get my hands on some authentic old farm journals. They must be awe-inspiring reads. Much like my child-

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - October 14 2010


Many times the Farmer will refer to the clipboard before he uses the phonebook. I learned a long time ago not to mess with the clipboard of lists. As I flip back through the aging sheets of looseleaf, I notice that the list of attendees at the family gatherings has shifted recently so that the younger generation under the “kids” heading shows more names than the “adults”. Soon we will be over-run with young people. When they do eventually (10 years from now!) add a name or two to our “kids” list on the clipboard, we will welcome the little gaffers with real Thanksgiving.

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way While, it might seem strange to think of plants as moving, just as we send out our children into the world when they come of age, plants send off their seeds to new destinations. Some, like the milkweed, use air transport. But instead of buying tickets, these clever plants dress their “kids” for the occasion. Lightweight bodies adorned with silk parachutes allow seeds to travel anywhere from a dozens of metres to several kilometres. Dandelions and many

very well, so the mother plant has a clever plan. On those days, she closes up the beautiful basketlike structure, once the flower head and now the seed holder. This stays closed until the sun promises the return of the plant’s taxis. Now, before you start ascribing animal intelligence to QueenAnne’s-Lace, be aware that it is humidity that causes the basket to close (its arms swell differentially and curl) and a lack of humidity that straightens them out again! Some plants use both wind and animals for seed dispersal. The common lawn “weed” Plantain has tiny seeds that are spread by the wind on dry days. But when it rains the seeds become covered by glue that binds them to wet hair, feathers, or even leaves. Our local plants show great ingenuity when it comes to sending off their seeds to new locations. Perhaps you recently took a stroll and unwillingly took part in some plant’s clever scheme. If not, there is still plenty of time to play taxi! The Nature Number is 613-3872503; email is

This time of year is nothing short of invigorating. Flocks of geese liven the sky and hardwood leaves paint the landscape brilliant hues. The air is cooler and rich with oxygen. This is especially evident at night as myriad stars blaze their distant presence in the dark. A major invasion is also underway. On the sundrenched days following the heavy rains of last week, the first wave of invaders arrived. If you were passing by an old field, you might have witnessed the spectacle of thousands of parachutes powered by strong winds filling the air. But they were not foreign troops attempting to take over our province. They were milkweeds on the move.

other sun-loving plants use the same travel plan. Some plants use ground transport. Bidens (alias Beggars-ticks. alias Sticktights) adorn their seeds with curved teeth that grab onto anything wearing hair, feathers, or cotton/polyester. These seeds travel for considerable distances until the carrier becomes aware of their presence and dislodges them, or they lose their grip and fall by the wayside. Either way they successfully make the journey to a new location. Undoubtedly the most famous plant to use this mode of transport is Burdock. Burdock seeds have wonderful hooked barbs that inspired Swiss electrical engineer George de Mestral to invent Velcro. Queen-Anne’s-Lace also uses animal transport but the couriers are not always available. On wet days, animals are less likely to be active, plus the seeds do not catch

Questions & answers with all councillors and mayoralty candidates

October 14 2010 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

Who will you vote for?

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - October 14 2010


Our city is changing…

Who will you vote for? On October 25, 2010, Ottawa will elect a new mayor and city council. This election is one of the most important and closely contested in recent history. With a wide slate of candidates and many important issues at stake, it is important to stay informed.

Group, publisher of 11 weekly community papers in the Ottawa area, has chosen to provide you with up-todate, comprehensive coverage in our papers and online of all of the candidates, the local issues and how they plan to tackle the issues.

Having so many choices can be daunting. For this election, we have been asked to choose from of a record number of potential candidates. The key is not to let the sheer multitude of choice keep you from voting. If you allow that to scare you off, you will be effectively turning over the keys to the city to people who may not share your opinions or the needs of your community.

All of the candidates who chose to participate are profiled in this issue in one complete, informative pullout section. We interviewed and met with all the mayoral candidates and asked council candidates to answer questions on some of the key issues in each ward. In this way, you can follow how each candidate stands on the key issues in their own words.

Thorough research and consideration should be given to all candidates and that is why Metroland Media

We hope that this election feature will help keep you informed and will encourage you to get out and vote on election day.

1) Who can vote? You can vote in the municipal election if you are: • a Canadian citizen • at least 18 years old • a resident of your respective municipality • a non-resident owner or tenant of land in your respective municipality, or their spouse • not prohibited from voting under any law

2) What should I take with me to vote? Your voter information card and acceptable pieces of identification, which include the following: • One piece of ID showing your name, address (where you currently live or own property) and signature or two pieces of ID — the first piece showing your name and signature and the second piece of ID showing your name and address. • If you do not have acceptable identification you will be asked to swear an oath before being issued a ballot. • Your voter information card cannot be used as identification

3) What offices will the City’s electors be voting for?

For Councillor profiles in Ward 5 – West Carleton - March

• The Mayor is elected at large by all electors. • Councillors are elected by the eligible voters of each ward – one Councillor for each of Ottawa’s 23 wards. • School Board Trustees are elected by zones, which comprise one or more City wards. The board you are entitled to vote for is determined by your school support status, as shown on the voters’ list.

Cesar Bello A PhD in social anthropology, resident of Ottawa for more than 20 years, and owner/ director of Mundo en Espanol Newspaper in Ottawa, Bello says he’s running to stop crime and unnecessary spending. He vows to improve social services and create more jobs, to promote clean energy and recycling and improving - make affordable and reliable - the public transit, and to limit property tax increases to below the rate of annual inflation. Cesar Bello is not your everyday politician. Not only is he not afraid to change his stance on an issue if it means doing what residents want, but he doesn’t believe in belittling his mayoral candidate rivals. In fact, he doesn’t even believe he’s pitted against people in the race. “I am not in competition with anyone,” Bello said. “When you’re in competition, there’s fighting and nothing gets accomplished.” Bello was inspired to run for mayor after reading a column about the city-wide bus strike in February 2009. He filed his papers on April 16, citing a need for action. Bello vows to make transportation more affordable and an essential service in this city. “I saw a lot of pain in the residents,” he said, noting he would do a review to decide whether buses or light rail would be the transportation method of choice in the future. “There were people having to stay home and people losing their jobs.” Born in Peru, Bello has lived in Ottawa for 20 years and loves the city’s “friendly” nature. “This is our home and we have to work hard to keep it beautiful,” he said. “Whenever some asks where I’m from, I say ‘This is home.’ I love Ottawa.”But there are parts of the city Bello knows that need some improvements. The 47-year-old said taxes have risen at an alarming rate recently. Though he knows freezing tariffs are not possible, he said the increase should be more in line with inflation rate. “No more money taken from Joe taxpayer’s pockets,” he said. “Poverty in our city is an issue, but it never was before. How come? We’re in Canada.” With a PhD in social anthropology, Bello understands negotiation and said he’s able to work effectively both by himself and in a team. “It’s not one person’s work, but everyone’s,” he said. “Together we can make things work.” He said finishing the work he sets out to do, instead of fighting, is paramount to gaining the residents’ trust and respect. Doing so will create a vibrant community filled with richness and prosperity, he added. “I do what my people want me to do. My commitment is to the people.”

Idris Ben Tahir Idris Ben-Tahir, 71, has a B.A. from the University of Ottawa and retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2004. He ran for the Conservative federal nomination in Ottawa Centre and ran in the Somerset ward in 2006. He retired in 2004, but is back and ready to make this city better. Idris Ben-Tahir wants to make changes in the way Ottawa is governed. Born in India, the 71-year-old decided to run for mayor on Sept. 10 – the last day of registration. Ben-Tahir said he had been thinking about it for a while “but wanted to study the matter thoroughly.” “I’ve wanted to make a difference in the way Ottawa has been run for a long time,” he said, adding the current has a myopic vision. “The city has been using Ottawans as tax producers for their trove without contributing to the welfare of both the city and its denizens.” As someone who had served with the RCAF Primary Reverse since moving to Ottawa in 1960, Ben-Tahir has lived in around the downtown core ever since – save for a year in Cold Lake, Alta. where he worked editing the engineering performance reports as part of the air weapons range. As a result, Ben-Tahir said he is running for “neglected Ottawans” in the rural areas of the city who have let down by the city since amalgamation. Ben-Tahir’s top priority is to build a bypass south of the highway 417. But that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about public transportation. The candidate doesn’t think Ottawa has an acceptable transit system for a G8 capital, especially since Toronto and Montreal have more efficient methods. “Nothing is connected in this city,” Ben-Tahir said. “You arrive at the bus station or the airport and you have to take a taxi. Why do we make life difficult for people?” Ben-Tahir wants to have a light-rail line from Kanata to Orleans, branching from Hazeldean to the airport with stops in Riverside South and Barrhaven. “Then there should be buses in places light rail cannot go,” he said. Many feel that light rail is too expensive, but Ben-Tahir said it’s irrelevant when it comes to future impacts.“The cost is not the problem,” he said. “Once you build it, the economic benefits will be huge.” The monarchist lists former prime minister John Diefenbaker – whom he met in the late 1960s – as one of his biggest mentors.“I think it’s about time somebody does something to help this city,” he said. “I’m coming out of retirement just to help the citizens of our national capital.”

Clive Doucet

Robert Furtenbacher

BIO: Clive Doucet has held the Capital Ward council seat for 11 years. He began his career at the Federal Ministry of Urban Affairs, then worked on local government reform at the Ontario Municipal Affairs Ministry. He is married with two children and three grandchildren.

BIO: Joseph Furtenbacher, 50, has been living in Ottawa for the past 16 years. Self-taught in economics, foreign exchange and philosophy, he is a former band player and lives on a provincial disability plan.

Trailing by a significant margin in the polls, Clive Doucet knows he faces an uphill struggle in the remaining days of the mayoral race, but he insists quiet support is building and his platform is working.“I think people are going to be surprised when the vote comes on Oct. 25,” he said. “People behind the scenes are very, very supportive.” Few will state publicly their support because he is battling large corporations that small business people need to work with, he said, adding that doesn’t accept donations from developers. Doucet, in municipal politics since 1997, points to support for his small business and farms plank, to urban and suburban commuters for his transportation ideas, and to youth interested in his plan to reform spending effectively and reform governance. The son of an Acadian father and English war bride, the 64-year-old Doucet has long wrestled with Canada’s two solitudes identity. It appears here and there in his 15 books, and in his politics where he often champions the underdog while offering what he sees as practical solutions. When it comes to small business and farmers, Doucet offers to focus money and talent on the burgeoning green economy and improve food distribution facilities.“I’ve been working with small business and farmers for a long time now,” he said. “When I was first elected we didn’t have a single farmers’ market. We now have one in every neighbourhood.” A new transit system has to come now, said Doucet, not in 10 or 20 years. He champions a surface light rail transit, calling it affordable, efficient, reliable and economically sensible. As mayor, he vows to: start an eastwest rail corridor along Carling Avenue, extend the north-south O-Train to the airport, use Laurier Avenue for light rail, build light rail east to Blair Road and delay the planned tunnel.

Mayoral candidate Joseph Furtenbacher said he decided to run because the city is in dire need of an overhaul. “Everyone else is doing everything wrong,” said the 50-year-old. “They’re pulling ideas out of a hat.” Self-taught in economics, foreign exchange and philosophy, Furtenbacher said the city needs a progressive tax reform. He said he wants to see good zones and bad zones and tax each accordingly. Bad zones, like gas stations, would be taxed more heavily than good zones. Furtenbacher said he also wants to see city council take a pay cut. “I have philosophical reasons for working for (less money).” He said he would accept around $40,000 and the rest would be spent for city projects. “If everyone who works for this city paid ourselves less, there would be more money for projects,” said Furtenbacher. Furtenbacher said he wants to see above-ground rapid transit, similar to the GO train in Toronto with feeder buses to alleviate traffic congestion. “I’d start with an east-west line and add more as it goes,” he said. He would have connecting loops around the major areas in the city, including Kanata, Barrhaven, Orleans and Centretown. Much of the line would use existing tracks. “I like to have a rationale behind it,” said Furtenbacher. “There’s no rationale to going underground.” He also wants to see the current Lansdowne project scrapped in favour of more green space. “I would get rid of the pavement,” he said. “I would keep the historical and outlying buildings.” He said he wants to put a stop to council selling public land to developers. “There’s been too many bad decisions,” he said. He said the city’s bicycle bylaws need to be changed because biking in the city isn’t safe. “The only reason I haven’t been hit is because I break the rules.”

Doucet doesn’t believe in offering a catch phrase like “zero means zero” or a promise to reach 2.5 per cent tax increases. His pledge is to spend revenue more effectively, find savings – such as cancelling the Lansdowne deal – that will offset the need for high tax increases. Both the tunnel and Lansdowne will cost taxpayers dearly, he said.

He said bikes should be allowed to use the sidewalks, especially when needing to make a left-hand turn. He said drivers don’t pay enough attention to cyclists and it can be a gamble sitting on a bike in the left turn lane.

“Instead of looking at the tax cut, try and look at where your government is spending its money,” he said.

Furtenbacher said he wants people to vote for him based on his philosophy, not how he looks.

Robert Gauthier Bio: Robert Gauthier is a long-time Parkwood Hills resident who now lives downtown. He is a 73-year-old widower with three children and two grandchildren. He is retired from a career that has included construction, engineering and sales. Gauthier now works part-time in a fast-food restaurant to supplement his retirement income.

Andrew Haydon BIO: Andy Haydon is the former mayor of Nepean and also served as chair of the regional municipality of Ottawa-Carleton. Haydon, 76 and his wife, Sherry live in Barrhaven. He has two sons and two daughters, and two friendly dogs.

The little guy has a friend in Robert Gauthier. The 73-year-old is in the mayor’s race because he believes the electoral process is unfair to anyone who’s not considered a front-runner.

Trains or buses? It’s Ottawa’s $2.1-billion question. It’s the elephant in the room. But no one seems to be taking expansion of our bus system seriously, with mayoral frontrunners Jim Watson and Larry O’Brien on record supporting light rail.

“We have to change the process because candidates are not being heard,” Gauthier said. “Give people an opportunity to evaluate the 20 candidates. It shouldn’t be a rich citizen’s race or an influential citizen’s race.”

Former Nepean mayor and regional chair Andy Haydon wants to change that. He wants to get people talking about buses because the cost of expanding the existing system is much lower than scrapping chunks of the Transitway in favour of rail.

In that vein, Gauthier said he has already filed a statement of claim against organizers of an Oct. 5 mayoral debate at the National Arts Centre – to which only Jim Watson, Larry O’Brien, Clive Doucet and Andrew Haydon were invited. “It’s really an impediment to the proper function of democracy in Canada,” Gauthier said, taking the opportunity to state his campaign slogan: “Democracy means choices.”

Haydon does agree with rail-backers on one count: the need for a downtown tunnel to ease congestion on city streets above. But he said that tunnel could just as easily carry buses, and exhaust won’t be an issue with electric-hybrid buses that can switch to battery power as they pass below the city’s core.

He said he’s seeking “the fast-food vote,” by which he means the average worker. “The people who make minimum wage aren’t represented,” he said. Gauthier arrived at an interview still wearing his uniform from a shift at a fast-food restaurant, and was proud to do so, insisting on pinning on his name tag for a photo.

“For the last 100 years, trains have remained unchanged,” Haydon said. “Bus technology is advancing all the time.” He sees buses running along our existing Transitway, zipping through a tunnel as efficiently as any train, and popping out the other end to complete the cross-Ottawa trip without need for transfers. And if you only need a tunnel – without rails – the city could have a budget surplus on its hands.

“The bottom line of a balance sheet isn’t money, it’s people,” he said. “There are lots of people out there who make minimum wage and those people want a community that respects the people rather than the influential.”

Haydon said his goal will always be the highest ridership at the lowest cost, and he believes light rail misses the mark. He knows he’s up against a proposed rail system that tugs at voters’ emotions. He says rail is “sexy.” But maybe voters can come around if they can bear to look at Haydon’s very unsexy numbers.

Some of Gauthier’s priorities include a freeze on bus fares and better maintenance of existing infrastructure. “Broken buses are number one,” he said. “I’ve worked in transportation and I know rolling stock, and you have to maintain them better. (The city) buys expensive buses and then they don’t maintain the roads. The priority should be what you buy and what you build.” Still on the issue of buses, Gauthier said that if he serves as mayor, there won’t be any bus strikes. “I think it’s better to work with labour and I support labour,” he said. “That doesn’t mean I’m anti-management, but you collaborate.”

He estimates the city’s taxpayers will be on the hook for $13,600 per household when it comes time to pay the light rail bill. And those costs may go up because the provincial and federal governments have capped their commitment to this city’s transit system, making any cost overruns the responsibility of city council.

Gauthier is also interested in ways to reduce crime. He said 90 per cent of crimes can be traced back to a small number of people, and the best way to handle the perpetrators is to educate them.

“If they debenture it (borrow the funds) you can double it,” he said. “If you want to pay that, then you deserve to have light rail.” Instead, he sees buses running along our existing Transitway, zipping through a tunnel as efficiently as any train, and popping out the other end to complete the cross-Ottawa trip without need for transfers. And if you only need a tunnel – without rails – the city could have a budget surplus on its hands.

Immanuel House - An Investment for the Future Dr. Suman Khulbe is a financial participant in the Immanuel House retirement residence not only because she feels confident it’s a good investment, but because she’s convinced it’s the way of the future for retirement living. Dr. Khulbe runs an anti-aging and sports medicine practice, as well as a medical spa. “I believe the way to a healthy retirement is through active living,” she says. “Immanuel House is designed for that kind of lifestyle.” When it’s finished, Immanuel House will provide 105 rental suites and 35 retirement apartments in the village of Richmond’s Hyde Park seniors development. The residence will offer affordable housing for seniors in an all-in-one community with a pool, fitness and health care facility, dining room, hobby room, theatre, entertainment and housekeeping. Shopping and banks are nearby. Suites will be fitted with SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) equipment that includes water overflow sensors, emergency response, nonmotion detectors and state-of-the-art telemedicine system that lets medical professionals monitor and advise residents right in their homes. Dr. Khulbe was impressed with the time and effort Immanuel House principals took to answer her questions. Purchase arrangements are flexible: She bought a full unit in Immanuel House, but she could have opted for anywhere from one to 12 fractions of that unit. She’s secure in the knowledge she’s helping to create a healthy retirement environment for the seniors who choose to live in Immanuel House, while holding a good investment. Here’s how it works: Immanuel House’s developer, Hyde Park, registers a private mortgage. Participants lend money into it. Their loan is secured against the property and the project. Even if the project did not proceed, participants would hold the mortgage to a valuable asset. Since she invested in November 2009, the 37-year-old Dr. Khulbe has been receiving interest of up to 12 per cent a year, paid monthly. When Immanuel House is 85 per cent filled, suite owners like Dr. Khulbe will share in the income generated from renters and community use of the recreation centre. Suites will be rented to seniors at rates below what they’d find in many other communities that offer such high-end services. The apartments wing will even have its own entrance to give everyone a sense of independence.

Dr. Lloyd Van Wyck is a plastic surgeon and father of three university students. His investments include fixed income, equities and real estate. “I think you have to be in all vehicles to feel comfortable,” says the 58-year-old. “I don’t like jumping in to something without knowing everything. I met with representatives of Immanuel House three or four times before I bought in April 2010. I’d say, ‘explain that again.’ And they would. I bought a full unit. “Buying something that’s not built yet seems a little riskier. But I know Hyde Park has a good track record,” says Dr. Van Wyck. Immanuel House fits with Dr. Khulbe’s philosophy of giving Income property investor and back to the community, Ottawa Plastic Surgeon Dr. Lloyd Van Wyck she says, a philosophy drummed into her by her parents, who immigrated from India. “I might even want to be more involved,” she enthuses. “Who knows? Maybe some day I’ll be practising there.” For more information • Contact Income Property Sales Manager Ken Lantier at 613-686-1222, extension 107, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. • Email Gary May and his wife, Linda Mondoux, operate the website,, which is devoted to introducing people to the many waterfront communities and living options available across Ontario.


WEST CARLETON REVIEW - October 14 2010



Robin Lawrance

Fraser Liscumb

BIO: Robin Lawrance, 56 years old, emigrated to Canada from Scotland. Lawrence said he served 10 years with the Canadian Forces and has been involved in politics since the 1980s.

BIO: Fraser Liscumb, 62, has lived in the St. George’s area of the west end for the past 22 years. He has worked as a janitor at Carleton University while serving as a full time “Mr. Mom” as he believes that family comes first.

Mayoral candidate Robin Lawrance said those elected to city council need to start paying attention to the taxpayers – and letting the next mayor do the job properly.

Fraser Liscumb views himself as a troubleshooter, a fixer, a visionary. That is why he is running to be mayor of the city of Ottawa in the upcoming election. He wants to use his ability to solve problems and come up with solutions to remedy what’s wrong at city hall. And he will do this all, he says, by working with people and communities.“I always believe the community is only as good as the network you have helping each other,” he says.

“If you’re going to be the boss, they (the councillors) have to let him be the boss,” said the 56-year-old. “But the mayor also needs to listen to the taxpayers.” He said there is too much talking within council, without any action.

He believes that people should try to make a difference in life and that’s what he wants to do as mayor, especially since he feels he understands the plight of ordinary individuals who right now are hurting and need solutions, not problems, coming from city hall. He promises to get people involved. “I have the skills, the tools, the imagination to get them involved,” Mr. Liscumb says.

“I’m not going to say I’m going to; I will,” said Lawrance. “You know the problem with this city? Too much talking and not enough doing. I see there is a great need for someone at the helm who’s going to care.” He said the idea of underground transit is absurd in a city that is prone to earthquakes. “It’s stupid to go underground when we have rail tracks,” said Lawrance, who estimated it would cost around $8 million to clean and convert the tracks. “Ain’t it a better deal than digging underground?”

Indeed, this is why he is running to be mayor as he does not believe his own children will be able to live in their hometown if things keep going the way they have been going. “I don’t sit back if a see a problem, I make a suggestion,” he says.

Lawrance, who said he served with the Canadian Forces for 10 years before being honourably discharged after being hit in the back of the neck, which caused his vision loss, wants to see taxes frozen.

He says that he never gets involved in things unless it is to make a difference and that if he does get involved, he does end up making a difference.

“Why don’t we freeze them for a little while, then put it up for what we need and not for profit,” he said. “Do you know what the problem is with this city? They’ve forgotten about the people. At the end of the day it comes back to this, their pocket book.”

Liscumb is making only one promise when he becomes mayor. He promises that he will not make decisions alone but will do everything with community input.

He said taxes are being spent on projects the city doesn’t need. “I want to see the taxes being properly spent in this city. Not on silly projects.”

He also believes that people want change at city hall.“If they want change, I will give them such good change that no one will ever go back,” Mr. Liscumb says. This will be done by working with others and the community, he pledges.

Lawrance said he considers Lansdowne one of those projects.“If I go in as mayor, I will tear up the Lansdowne project. There is nothing for kids, nothing for teens, young people or seniors.”

He is an advocate of having a 21st century transit system as he says a city cannot compete in today’s global economy without such a system as it indicates to the world that the city is progressive. He advocates an electromagnetic rail system that would run alongside roads, carrying passengers in pods.

He said he would turn it into a historical park instead, with rides and attractions that offer historical background information.“Like a little Disney World,” he said. “Tourists would flock here. That’s using your imagination.”

Mike Maguire

Larry O’Brien

BIO: Married with two daughters, Mike Maguire is a long time resident and community volunteer in Ottawa. Mike has also spent years working on numerous political campaigns at all levels of government.

BIO: Mayor O’Brien was born in Ottawa and graduated from the Algonquin School of Technology in 1972 with a diploma in Technology. He founded Calian in 1982 as a one-person consulting company and built it into an internationally competitive technology firm.

Mike Maguire is taking a two-pronged approach with his mayoral platform: improving transportation and lowering taxes.

Larry O’Brien said he’s learned a lot during his past four years as mayor – what works and what doesn’t at city hall, and what he has to fix.

The self-employed analyst wants to create a rail system that’s similar to the Toronto area’s GO Train, with four separate lines across the city. He said his idea is cheaper because there is no service rail, it doesn’t contain a tunnel and it uses existing rail track in places like the Strandherd train station.

The incumbent said he will start by revisiting council’s decision to reject city staff’s recommendation to expand the urban boundary by 850 hectares, approving only an additional 230 hectares. Developers immediately appealed the decision at the Ontario Municipal Board.

The Kars resident added that any tunnel and light-rail plan that’s been proposed would bear a 16 per cent increase on taxpayers, especially given the expenses associated with maintenance and operations. “Let’s hear Mr. Watson and Mr. O’Brien address that,” Maguire said. “You might as well say it should be serviced by unicorns. It’s not possible.”

Council made a mistake that taxpayers will pay for fighting a losing battle at the OMB, said O’Brien. “Let’s get ourselves out of the legal mess we’ve put ourselves into,” he said. “The first thing I’m going to do (if re-elected) is move to accept staff … recommendations of urban boundary expansion.”

Maguire analyzed the previous north-south light-rail proposal and recommended its cancellation in 2006. However he said the current other big-name candidates have “tunnel vision” and are not thinking about the effect the new system would have on the taxpayer. For instance, in rural areas like West-Carleton and Osgoode, Maguire said people would have to $460 per year compared to just $15 under any proposed transportation method. Small businesses would see a greater increase. Self-described as a “back-room guy for 20 years,” Maguire worked on Mayor Larry O’Brien’s campaign in 2006. The 49-year-old said he decided to run because he became “disenchanted with the last four years,” particularly with O’Brien’s failed promise of not raising taxes. “If he lost and I beat him, that would be provocative stuff,” Maguire said. “If he loses decisively, that’s a referendum on the decisions he has made over the last four years.” The two other top concerns for Maguire surround Lansdowne and language fairness. He said revamping Lansdowne on the taxpayers’ dime is an unbelievably risky idea, given the examples of SkyDome in Toronto and Olympic Stadium in Montreal, and should be a low priority because of taxes. Maguire doesn’t want Ottawa to be classified as bilingual. He would use the savings to help promote services in other languages like Chinese, Hindu, Arabic, and Somali, which he said are more popular in the city.

Michael St. Arnaud BIO: Michael St. Arnaud is a 62-year-old retired draftsman who has lived in Nepean over the past decade. He holds a diploma in retail management from Algonquin College and has also studied in the police foundation program, the private and public investigation program and a law clerk course. Ottawa needs a mayor who is going to speak up for the city’s most vulnerable citizens, said Michael St. Arnaud, a 62-year-old retired draftsman. Someone has to speak up for isolated seniors, people with disabilities and tenants seeking good housing in the city of Ottawa, he said.

Next on the agenda is city governance, said O’Brien, who is considering creating three new committees aligned by geography: urban, rural and suburban, offering the idea as an alternative to a borough system. O’Brien wants to remodel the budget-making process to allow the mayor to present the budget instead of city staff, which can later be debated and changed by council. The incumbent said he still wants to hold the line on tax increases, but that he’ll need the support of council. “I’ll need to have a group of like-minded councillors on the financial side only,” said O’Brien, adding that he opposes political parties in municipal politics. A list will be released identifying candidates who support O’Brien’s ideas of fiscal responsibility, said the incumbent. Part of his proposed spending controls includes a plan to “freeze the city’s wage envelope,” he said. O’Brien said he’s “prepared to reduce services and cut staff” if the unions representing city staff aren’t prepared to negotiate wage controls. He also wants to create an independent transit commission to oversee OC Transpo and debate the future of the infrastructure renewal fund. O’Brien said he’s proud of council’s accomplishment’s which include approving an east-west light rail project, a renovated Lansdowne Park and cleaning up the Ottawa River.



St. Arnaud declared himself a candidate for Ottawa’s 2010 mayoral election after looking at the slate of candidates. “I don’t think anybody’s advocating for the people of Ottawa,” said St. Arnaud.

• Electrical • Air Filter

St. Arnaud said he has a history of sticking up for the little guy, as a volunteer at the Shepherds of Good Hope and helping low-income residents as a member of West End Legal Services and ACORN Canada (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), an organization of low and middle-income families that advocates for affordable housing, tenant rights and on other social issues.

• Cooling System

St. Arnaud, who has rented an apartment and a house in Nepean over the past two decades, studied the Landlord Tenant Act at Algonquin College, where he took a law clerk course. “That’s one of the reasons I’m going into the arena (of politics), to promote the idea that landlords should be licensed,” said St. Arnaud.

• Lights • Brakes

St. Arnaud said he’d like to see OC Transpo provide improved and more compassionate service for its ridership. More bike racks on buses would be a nice start, he said. Drivers and bus inspectors shouldn’t be so quick to ticket people who hop on the bus without paying, he added, suggesting that they allow a day’s leeway to purchase the fare. Another hot-button issue facing candidates is taxes. St. Arnaud said he couldn’t see how council could offer a tax freeze and that it must balance any increase with the needs and wants of the citizens of Ottawa. The retired Nepean man said he had a host of ideas aimed at helping low-income residents: - Encourage cycling in Ottawa. St. Arnaud said he’d like council to look at a free bicycling system used in France that provides free bikes for people to travel within the cities. - Create a support group for isolated seniors that runs like Meals on Wheels. “I don’t think (any of the council candidates) are advocating for the City of Ottawa,” said St. Arnaud. “I don’t think they have the skills (needed to fix the problem.)”

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - October 14 2010



Jane Scharf

Jim Watson

BIO: Jane Scharf has a legal and social work background. Her primary interest is humane, rational and fair social policy. She has been a political activist for a number of years with many successful battles with city hall under her belt including the Homeless Action Strikes.

BIO: Jim Watson stepped down this year as Ontario’s Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean to run to become mayor of the city of Ottawa. Mr. Watson was a councillor with the preamalgamation city of Ottawa as well as its mayor.

Jane Scharf is not just a one-issue candidate. “A lot of people say my only issue is homelessness, actually I think the city is making great strides in that area,” Scharf said. “But there is still a lot that we need to work on.”

This election campaign is “T” time for city of Ottawa mayoralty candidate Jim Watson. No, it doesn’t mean a tee time for golfing, although the campaign has not been without its times when candidates, especially Mr. Watson and his chief rival, incumbent mayor Larry O’Brien, have teed off on each other with various criticisms.

Scharf said city hall needs someone like her, who is ready to challenge the status quo. She wants to make sure that Ottawa is an inclusive city. “I will achieve this, not by running the city as a business which leaves vulnerable people out,” she said. “The business approach does not save money because the social fallout costs such as mental health costs, as well as the cost of policing and jailing the destitute is staggering. A well-run community is fiscally responsible and it does so without leaving anyone out. A community tries to make fair and reasonable decisions for all of us including the sick, weak and vulnerable.” Scharf would like city council to start a discussion in three areas: accountability, tax reform and the institution of a food security committee. She also said she believes a lot more done if the local politicians would spend more time on policy decisions and less time networking. “As a mayor I will not participate in any community events during office hours,” she said. “Community events I will attend after hours as a regular citizen.” She also believes in the creation of a police policy committee made up of a broad-based membership that will consult the public on desired policing issues. Her next move under the umbrella of accountability would be the creation of an inspector general’s office. The function of the office would be to conduct independent investigations and audits. “The Children’s Aid Society and school boards (have similar offices) to detect and deter waste, fraud, abuse, and misconduct, and to promote integrity, economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in all these operations,” Scharf said. On the issue of tax reform, Scharf said the candidates should not promise arbitrary property tax increases, but advocate the federal and provincial governments for the proper funding to maintain our programs and services. “My complaint is that this municipal tax crisis is caused by federal and provincial downloading which forces the city to raise taxes to offset the shortfall from the transfer payments or lose the program or service,” she said.

And it doesn’t mean tea time, that traditional brew, although Mr. Watson, a former provincial cabinet minister, is legendary for his ability to schmooze with the best of them, whether it be over a cup of tea or a church supper or just on the street. But “T” time does stand for the three themes in his mayoralty campaign – taxes, transit and trust. On municipal taxes, Mr. Watson is quite clear – annual increases of no more than 2.5 percent. He views this as a “realistic and affordable” proposal that will allow the city to manage without gutting important community services. He predicts city residents will not be hoodwinked with a promise of zero tax increases as happened in the last municipal election, followed by four years where taxes went up a collective 14 ½ per cent. On transit, Mr. Watson is committed to proceeding with the proposed east/west light rail plan with a downtown tunnel. “Let’s not flip flop again,” he says in reference to the cancellation of a light rail plan to serve the south end of the city after the last municipal election. He pledges to keep the new light rail plan on time and on budget and has proposed the appointment of a private sector board of management to oversee the project to ensure this. “We can’t do everything at once,” he says in response to criticism that the light rail plan does not serve the south end of the city nor the far east and west suburbs. He says that the light rail system has to be built from the centre of the city out and promises to work to get more funding from other levels of government in order to quicken the time frame to serve these left-out areas. Trust is the third theme in Mr. Watson’s campaign, leading to what he calls his integrity package. This includes appointment of an integrity commissioner, registration of lobbyists and posting online the expenses of all elected officials. “This would set the gold standard for ethics in municipal government,” Mr. Watson says.

Being mayor also would provide opportunities for Charlie to promote change for residents of the City of Ottawa.



Charlie Taylor calls himself a breath of fresh air. He has set about a grassroots campaign since February, trying to make himself heard in the increasing number of voices seeking Ottawa’s top spot.

*Offer Valid Until October 31st 2010

Taylor ran for mayor because he didn’t feel there would be a candidate that represented his views. He describes his political bent as similar to those of the Green Party, but he stresses the fact that he’s just an average Joe. “I have worked a number of jobs and traveled to 45 countries on five continents,” he said. “Chances are I know what it is like to be you — I have been a bartender, a waiter and now I am a student. I can represent you better than a career politician or a successful businessman.” The 33-year-old Carleton journalism student can speak six languages and has close ties to Ottawa — where he was born and raised. Taylor’s buzz word is sustainability — be it for the environment or for taxes—he wants to find a way that our municipal government can manage growth and provide services in a fiscally-responsible, sustainable way. “The elephant in the room is that over half of the city’s annual $2.2-billion budget goes to compensation,” Taylor said. “Salaries have risen 550 per cent since amalgamation — an increase that is out of proportion with inflation.” Taylor said he if he is elected mayor he is willing to take a 50 per cent pay cut. He added that it’s possible to cut administration position through attrition, so no one has to be laid off.

The other big issue for Taylor is transit. “Our transit is the most expensive in Canada,” he said. “Prices were raised in March in order to meet the arbitrary goal of having 50 per cent of the cost covered by riders and 50 per cent covered by taxes.” Taylor calls this goal reasonable but says increasing fares may be a disincentive to riders. He also believes there are ways to make transit more efficient and less costly. “I want to make a greener, happier, healthier, wealthier city,” he said.

“The more candidates there are, the less likely the serious candidates will be heard,” Taylor said, adding that major media outlets only tend to focus on the three or four top runners. “I feel like if I had equal media coverage, I would have a really good chance,” he said.

Constance Bay beach debate is that of informant. They should tell the people everything they know and then ask them what they would like to have done. Private property should be respected and left alone for the people to pay the taxes and liability insurance. They own it for their enjoyment. A lot of the beach is publicly owned and not by the people who own the houses or cottages along the water. The Carp dump expansion proposal is a provincial issue based on criteria that they set out for the dump owners to follow. The city mayor or councillors can try to influence the provincial bureaucrats at the ministry of the environment but so far no success. I believe that Ottawa should take care of its own garbage problems by making a waste processing facility. Hazardous waste should be separated by homeowners and brought to another facility to be taken car of properly as they do now, right. Aside from the people employed to the run the waste facility, there should be a public beach set up and run by the city in the west end of the Ottawa river hiring life guards and the clean up staff. Farmers market just of the 417 would also create jobs for students in the area in the summer and lets the local farmers sell there produce.

Ward 5 - Q&A

is however, a role as a community leader to assist in bringing two sides with opposing views together to find a solution that best meets a win-win approach. To this end, I have worked closely with all sides and a mediator/facilitator in moving forward on this sensitive issue. I appreciate the efforts that Waste Management has made to agree to the majority of the 15 conditions that I brought forward to council in my recent motion. Let’s face it, IC&I waste has to go somewhere - let’s work together to ensure that we keep all players working together to ensure that we find the best possible end result for the interim period while we continue to work on finding alternative technologies. I have worked actively to re-energize the Carp Village BIA and I am currently working with the Carp Corridor BIA. Both of these groups have the mandate to assist their membership in ensuring they are viable and sustain any growth and ultimately able to employ community members. Further, as a member of the City of Ottawa Economic Development Committee, I am working to help bring new business into all communities, including West Carleton. A great example of this is our relatively new Lee Valley Tools off Carp Road.

Concurrently, the councillor should point out the other public beach space in the area. What role should the councillor In 2006/7, Waste Management identified the play in the Constance Bay beach anticipated achievement of maximum capacity of Carp debate, and where do you stand on Road in 2011/12. At that point, council did nothing the issue? towards identification of an alternative for handling the IC&I waste. Do I support the expansion? No. What is you position on the Carp Would I vote for it to go ahead if I had to vote now? dump expansion proposal, and Unfortunately, Yes.

Land trust alternative for Beaver Pond JESSICA CUNHA

tween developers Richcraft and Urbandale, bought the land in order to build a 3,200 home subdivision, and Wilkinson said they don’t want to sell. “His land trust says we’ll buy land if it becomes available,” she said. “Well we don’t have a willing seller.” Wilkinson’s motion to delay developing the Beaver Pond land until the National Capital Commission completes its Greenbelt study was deferred until Nov. 17. Council wants staff to report on the impact of stopping development on the land and how it would impact future developments in the area, including sewer systems and roads. Wilkinson brought the motion before council on Wednesday, Oct. 6 since there wasn’t enough support on council to pass a previous motion asking the city to buy the land.

Sunday Worship Services 9 am & 11 am


Kanata North councillor candidate Jeff Seeton said he will be asking city council to consider an alternative approach in preventing development of the Beaver Pond lands. He said he wants to establish a land trust to purchase the section of the South March Highlands from KNL Developments Inc. “We’ve seen how effective our council has been up to this point,” said the 40-year-old business man. However, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said she can’t see the city deeding property to another land authority. The non-profit charitable land trust would be governed by an elected board of directors. “We would take it completely out of city hands,” said Seeton. “(The board) would be people who live in the community, who care about this property. No city officials.” He said the land would be purchased by the trust at fair market price. “There are two key points here: the first is that

we will pay a fair market price that the developers could agree on and the second point is that we will not be using property taxes to pay for the purchase of the property,” said Seeton. A land trust for the Rideau Water Way works much in the same way, he said. A volunteer board of directors controls the land. Seeton said he wants to ensure the 29 hectares of land north of the Beaver Pond is kept as it is. “The city is a horrible manager of land sometimes; the Beaver Pond is an example of that,” said Seeton. “This issue really was debated 30 years ago or so. At that time it was mayor Wilkinson, who is now councillor Wilkinson, who approved this process.” Wilkinson said the land slated for development is worth $18 million according to an independent appraisal.

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING has staying power. has selling power. With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.
