There are no systemic problems in the Ottawa Police Service, just a few “bad apples,â€? according to its board chair. Eli El-Chantiry expects the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) examination of the Stacy Bonds video, showing the young woman kneed and roughed up by seven officers before her blouse and bra are cut, will arrive at the same conclusion. He said there are too many checks in place, including numerous video cameras, to allow for a systemic problem to fester. But until that time, he admits, fingers will be pointed at those involved from top to bottom. “I don’t believe it’s a systemic problem,â€? said the West CarletonMarch councillor. “People want to see blood.â€? The issues over the last few weeks battering the force include: • Cabbies questioning police tactics after a fight between a driver and officer is caught on tape. The fight was deemed mutual, though the off-duty officer pursued the cabbie by car; • Sex workers say abuse from police is standard practice; • Accusations of racial profiling in the Bonds case and others; See POLICE page 3

Battle lines drawn in Carp landfill plan DEREK DUNN

The provincial government will let Waste Management take further steps to expand the Carp Road landfill. After the current landfill reaches capacity next year, the plan is to create a new environmentally friendly gas-to-energy facility called the West Carleton Environmental Centre. The new facility would have a lower sightline - more of a plateau than a mountain - than the existing one. The company guarantees homeowners in the area, primarily in Stittsville, will not

see their property values drop. Stittsville Coun. Shad Quadri and Carleton Mississippi Mills MPP Norm Sterling stridently oppose the project, calling the technology archaic. However, West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry said the real battle doesn’t start until the environmental assessment (EA) study begins. “I’m not OK with it,� El-Chantiry said. “Some things asked for in my motion are still outstanding. The EA is going to let us know how much garbage and diversion.� He added that an independent is also needed.

Continued from front • An officer was found guilty of nine charges, including endangering the life of an informant, though he was suspended with pay for two years; • A claim of a handcuffed 15-yearold boy being punched in the face by police; • A lawsuit claims police brutality in the case of a woman who said they broke her arm in 2008; • Another woman is suing over what she says was a sexual assault incident in 2007; • An officer was temporarily demoted for Tasing and kicking a female prisoner. El-Chantiry said when he found out about the Bonds video, he immediately asked Chief Vern White to provide him with all relevant information. But then the SIU stepped in, forcing both men into silence. Still, El-Chantiry stands behind the chief and has confidence that SIU will conduct an objective and legitimate in-

vestigation. “The minute he is not doing his job,” ElChantiry said, “I will call for his job.” He turned the tables on high-profile lawyer Lawrence Greenspon, who says police misconduct is a systemic problem in the Ottawa Police Service. He noted criminal lawyers who saw the video two years ago didn’t direct complaints to the police. “I think the prosecutors and defence lawyers should be investigated for their actions,” El-Chantiry said. “I’m hoping the SIU will investigate.” He dismisses the contention members of the force covered up the incident, although offered no explanation for why they didn’t speak up. Blame was also cast in El-Chantiry’s direction this week in a Nov. 30 Ottawa Citizen editorial calling for “stronger leadership” on the police services board. He denies being in too tight with the rank and file, and pointed out that he called early on for the most stringent measures in the Bonds case. “I believe I’ve been doing a great job for the past seven years,” he said.

Many dozens of kids will have a warmer winter thanks to a snowsuit fund by Grade 3 students at Stonecrest elementary school. “We are actually helping our community,” student Justine Styles said. “We wanted to keep children warm in our community.” Teachers Marcy Storms and Katy Wilker explained the students spent a week promoting the fundraiser, telling their friends to come to school with loonies and snowsuits they had outgrown. Donning Santa and elf hats, they combed the hallways with tin cans in hand, asking for donations. They then gathered gently used snowsuits and $1,500 in cash toward 30 new snowsuits, to deliver to St. Paul’s Angli-

can Church in Carp Nov. 30. The church will ensure the snowsuits reach disadvantaged kids. At least one student, Jack Maloney, managed to convince his parents to go a step further. “I had a new one to bring in,” Maloney said. Storms said after the items were collected, the students filled out deposit forms, which were double-checked by the school’s “chartered accountants” – the Grade 7s. However, by the end of the campaign many of the kids were feeling cold themselves. “We celebrated with ice cream,” Maloney said.

• Jacob Gillette as Senator Fipp. The musical is worth a credit to students and teaches teamwork, commitment, creativity and offers the opportunity to show off skills different from standard academics and sports. Logan said it also forces students to be focused and committed. “If you missed a rehearsal and people are counting on you, that’s not good,â€? she said. “You need a lot of energy and enthusiasm.â€? She added that staging a musical also does wonders for school spirit.


Potty humour backed up and overflowed at All Saints Catholic High School last week with the hit production Urinetown: The Musical. A satirical comedy musical, Urinetown pulls the plug on city politics, populism, bureaucracy and the legal system. The show also parodies musicals such as The Cradle Will Rock and Les Miserables, and the Broadway musical itself as a form. Urinetown is a dystopian wasteland where people pay to use toilets. Then a revolution is sparked. Corkery’s Amanda Logan choreographed the dance and also played the part of Miss McQueen. She said the upbeat and fun songs clash with the dark humour for an all around entertaining production. “It was really, really fun,â€? Logan said of the 50 students rehearsing since September. “We fed off each other’s ideas and it worked out really well.â€?

All Saints elevates potty humour in musical

City faces $5.5-million deficit LAURA MUELLER

The city is facing shortfalls of more than $5.5 million in the protective services department, according to a city report. The largest forecast deficits are found in fire services and community programs such as fitness and aquatic programs. Both those departments are expecting a $2.68-million deficit by the end of the year. In the case of fire services, the deficit is due to $2.7 million in “unrealized productivity savings” related to the expansion of the station in Barrhaven South. Those efficiencies will be carried over until that station becomes fully operational in 2012, according to a staff report. Spending for fitness programs went over budget, partially because of increased staffing costs related to rolling out a wristband program that requires all children swimming in city facilities to be tested. The city also took on responsibility for the Hunt Club Riverside Community Centre in January – another unexpected cost. The city also expects to lose revenue on the Kanata Leisure Centre, Nepean Sportsplex (halls A and B), the Splash Wave Pool and infrastructure repair projects, which will result in $2.7 million in deficits. The parks, buildings and grounds department is also looking at a deficit of $1.75 million. The report posts deficits in seven of the 16 departments and branches in protective services. On the positive side, a few branches will post surpluses, the largest being al-

The Holiday Season

Also at the protective services committee meeting, outgoing Bay Ward Coun. Alex Cullen introduced a motion to indicate council’s support for a national indigenous centre on Victoria Island, in the Ottawa River near Parliament Hill. Currently, Canada’s indigenous people don’t have a place in Ottawa to showcase their living culture and traditional culture, languages and spirit, according to the report. There is also no national centre to draw all aboriginal peoples together to celebrate their cultures. Such a centre was first proposed in the mid-1908s by Jean Pigott, then-chair of the National Capital Commission. The current push comes in advance of 2013, which marks the 400th anniversary of Canada’s indigenous people guiding Champlain up the Ottawa River to what became the country of Canada. The centre would be paid for by the federal government.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - December 2 2010



As a new city council prepares to meet for the first time, the West Carleton Review checked in with Coun. Eli El-Chantiry and some local community associations about the coming four years. El-Chantiry said the new council has an advantage over the group elected in 2006. “The new mayor is not hamstrung with a pledge of zero tax increase,” he said, adding former mayor Larry O’Brien then had to try and accomplish that goal while working with a council that had remained mostly unchanged. “This time there was a fundamental change,” El-Chantiry added, alluding to the many new faces on the 2010-2014 council. Many lean to the right, favouring lower spending. On taxes, he said all the councillors appear to agree that increases at the cost of living are acceptable. “Two-point-five per cent

or the cost of living is the goal we should be focusing on,” he said. El-Chantiry said there are enough mandatory costs – for things like emergency services and roads – that council has to strike a balance. “And that’s the hardest thing to achieve,” he said. He said West Carleton’s priority for the coming

One (issue) that stands out for us is the roads ... Everywhere you go, that’s what people talk about. • Eli El-Chantiry

In the category of damned-if-you do, he said there’s a downside to smooth roads. “We have roads that need to be paved, fixed or repaired and when we do, we hear about speeding.” In addition to roads, ElChantiry referred to the same three Ts that formed part of Jim Watson’s successful campaign for mayor: taxes, trash and transit. The trash element is an issue for people living near the Carp landfill, where owner Waste Management has applied for expansion. “In West Carleton, transit is about roads, but we still have to build transit (in the city) because people are always moving around. Most people in West Carleton are travelling east every morning.”

like to see the impossible: an increase in services and a reduction in taxes, but that’s not going to hap-

pen,” Rapoch said, adding he has confidence in ElChantiry’s approach. “I think Eli has a knack

for finding the sensible middle ground.” See ‘STATUS QUO’ Page 9

COMMUNITY GROUPS term is the same as ever. “One that stands out for us is the roads,” he said. “We need to upgrade and maintain them. Everywhere you go, that’s what people talk about.”

Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association president Andy Rapoch agreed that the three Ts are key, but isn’t expecting a miracle. “I think everyone would 430625

December 2 2010 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

Four more years: West Carleton talks about the future


WEST CARLETON REVIEW - December 2 2010



It’s almost winter, so bundle up The rain, rain will go away, you can be sure. Jack Frost is just waiting to pounce. This is Canada and we know cold. But it’s also worth considering how you deal with the chill: clothing, fluids and common sense. It may be that Canadians are somewhat immune to ice cold temperatures, but they can still be deadly. At –15 C, hypothermia becomes an increasing concern and when the wind chill reaches –35 or colder, exposed skin can freeze in as little as 10 minutes. Over-exposure to cold temperatures can result in severe injury and even death. In Canada, more than 80 people die each year from overexposure to the cold. The homeless, seniors, infants and newcomers to Canada are particularly vulnerable to the risks of frostbite

and hypothermia. Ottawa is one of the coldest capitals in the world. Winter temperature paired with wind can cause severe injuries and even death. Frostbite injuries can lead to amputations. Hypothermia, the most serious of cold weather complications can lead to brain damage and then death. Most susceptible to these cold weather problems are the elderly, children, the homeless, outdoor workers and sport enthusiasts. City of Ottawa paramedics offer a few tips to prevent the cold weather in becoming a life-threatening event: • Wear a hat: up to 40 per cent of body heat loss can occur through the head, • Wear gloves or mittens, • Wear a scarf to protect the chin, lips and cheeks: all are extremely susceptible to cold weather injuries.

• Drink warm fluids, but no alcohol. Alcohol promotes other cold weather injuries. • If you start to sweat, cool off a little. Wet clothes will also encourage other cold weather injuries. You can also beat the cold by wearing clothes in layers: • The inner layer, closest to the skin, should have “wicking” properties to move any moisture away from the skin The middle layer should be the insulating layer to prevent loss of your body heat while keeping the cold outside air away. • The outer layer should be the “windbreaking” layer to reduce the chances of cold air reaching the insulating layer Always be on the lookout for signs of frostbite and hypothermia. In case of serious cold weather injury, City of Ottawa paramedics urge you to seek immediate medical attention.


For Lansdowne, good football is good business Underlying the debate over the future of Lansdowne Park is the premise that the Ottawa Rough Riders will return to the Canadian Football League in a new Lansdowne Park home. And underlying that, in turn, is the premise that Ottawa and Valley fans will turn out in big numbers to support their team. Although, the last couple of versions of Ottawa football teams would not support that premise, we can at least hope so, particularly in light of the boost in CFL interest that always accompanies the Grey Cup game. And of course, the Rough Riders — let’s forget the Renegades, shall we? — had great success, both on the field and at the box office, in their best days. But we need to note that the best days were a long time ago and both the CFL and Ottawa have changed. Both may have become too big. In its best days, the CFL won the hearts and minds of Canadians, not to mention their dollars, not by being a big deal but by being a small one. The fans didn’t come out to see millionaire stars from the U.S. but to see people who were a part of their community, people who grew up there and people who came from elsewhere but stayed there

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town to live. So it was with the Ottawa Rough Riders of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. It was professional sports on a human scale, played by people we knew who didn’t drive around in cars a whole lot bigger than ours. The recent death of Jay Roberts, a Rough Riders star of the 1960s, brings that thought home. He was a guy who was born in Iowa, grew up in Tennessee, went to college in Kansas, came to Ottawa to play football, stayed and become a beloved part of the city. He was one of many Rough Riders from that era who have enriched the community and continue to do so. American or Canadian, the players of the CFL, lived in their communities yearEstablished in 1980

round. Because salaries were not high, many of them had jobs there in the off season. Most famously, Russ Jackson taught school in Ottawa, but many others worked in local businesses, sold investments, sold insurance. You could find Jay Roberts, playing pickup basketball around town. You could find Rough Riders in the gyms, the restaurants and sometimes in the tavern too, not surrounded by an entourage, but by ordinary folk. It was easy to root for players like that. They were sort of like us — bigger, more athletic, but not a whole lot richer. They didn’t travel around in limousines. They didn’t fly off to Florida as soon as the season was over. It felt like they were part of the community and they were. When the CFL changed, it was because over-ambitious owners in the ’70s began paying huge salaries to Americans with big reputations. At the same time, players began to be moved around the league like so many chess pieces. It was then that the CFL ceased to be about community in many cities. The Grey Cup excitement shows that there is still interest in the game across the

country, potentially. But it is hard to escape the feeling that the CFL, to work again in places like Ottawa, needs to find a way to bring back that community identity. The business equivalent of the bloated American superstar is the mammoth multinational big box store. And, continuing our stretch, we all know what the business equivalent of the old ’Riders is, don’t we? Right: the locally owned store. To sum up: What’s bad for the CFL is bad for Lansdowne Park, not to mention bad for Ottawa. Simple, isn’t it, when you let sound football thinking guide your city planning.

Continued from front In West Carleton’s northeast corner, Rapoch said the question of public or private ownership of Constance Bay’s beach must be addressed. “Within the Bay itself, there’s the ongoing beach issue, which hopefully we’ll resolve before spring.” To the west, Fitzroy Harbour Community Association president Karen Taylor has a short wish list for the coming four years. She said the association’s board wants to continue its relationship with the city and El-Chantiry, and that should allow the board to continue to provide similar level of service to residents in the

future. Taylor added that the association also wants to continue the status quo, which has seen the board manage the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre and grounds. A positive spinoff from that management has been the ability to provide part-time and summer jobs for local students. VOLUNTEERS WANTED Huntley Community Association’s (HCA) newly elected president, Annie Craig, said major projects such as the carnival in February and the Dec. 11, 1 p.m. Santa parade starting at the Diefenbunker will continue into the future.

However, the Carp area CA will need more volunteers if the much-enjoyed Octoberfest is to return. And the hope is to invest in the baseball diamond near the Mess Hall on Craig Side Road. “We’re trying to bring it back, but it takes a lot of work,” Craig said. She added that the CA continues to wait on learning the fate of the Honeywell property next to the Carp Farmers’ Market. If developers take it over to produce residential units, it will likely kill CA plans for greenspace. The HCA welcomes all Carp residents to its first meeting with the new executive. Call Craig at (613) 558-8286 for more.

Jogger reports ‘creepy’ driver OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE West Carleton weekly activity report for Nov. 19 to 25. On Nov. 15 at around 3 p.m., a jogger reported that a known male had driven slowly past her several times as she jogged along Donald B Munro and Carp Road; all the while staring intently at her. Police spoke to the male about his unusual behavior and reported that he would avoid such activities in the future. Please continue reporting all suspicious and usual activity, in progress, to police by calling the nonemergency number 613-230-6211. Or, if the activity has already occurred, report the incident to police by calling 613-236-1222, ext.7300. Not only are you the eyes and ears in the community but you are also the voice. Without your calls suspicious and unusual activity can go unchallenged and unaddressed. WELCOME ABOARD Welcome Sgt. Barb O’Reilly to West Carleton-March and thank-you for graciously accepting the challenge of peering through the West Carleton safety and security looking glass, or window, and writing a few stories. To give you a little background, O’Reilly is the community police center sergeant for west Ottawa. She is responsible for all of the west rural and urban centres such as West Carleton and Bayshore. WOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR FUR COAT ON YOUR FRONT LAWN? Bad enough that you find your unlocked vehicle ransacked and items stolen, but worse, you find your unlocked car stolen! Recently, these annoying opportunists have graduated from taking your GPS, which you kindly left for them in your unlocked vehicle, to taking your car, for which you kindly left your car keys inside. Remember, most property crimes are crimes of opportunity. Take the opportunity away from these annoying opportunists. Hang your fur coat in your closet,

lock your car, and put your car keys away in your house. NATURE CALL? Ottawa police service has received numerous complaints from joggers in and around Carp that they were followed or watched by a male motorist. One complainant said that the male even urinated on the side of the highway in her path. Not sure if it was really a nature call or malicious behaviour. Or maybe the male has a problem with joggers and was making a statement? In any event, if you want to continue to exercise your right to jog on the side of the highway remember to: • run facing traffic, • wear reflective clothing at night, • carry a cell phone, some identification and some money or a credit card, in case you need to take a taxi home. Finally, if you are ever in doubt as to whether or not you should call police, “is it a nature call or just creepy behaviour?” Chances are you should make the call. Suspicious Nov. 19 Linda Loop, Marathon Village: Suspicious vehicles continue to drive into the park on Linda Loop during the early evening hours. At around 7:30 p.m. on Friday, a complainant overheard unidentified males chatting away in the field but was unable to make out what they were saying. Police were unable to locate the two vehicles but several tire tracks were observed in the wet grass. Traffic Complaint Nov. 20 Bayview Drive, Constance Bay: Patrol officers attended a residence in Constance Bay regarding a child sitting in a female passenger’s lap as their vehicle exited off of Highway 417 at March Road. With the licence plate number in hand, police were able to locate the owner of the vehicle and give the driver an education session and a verbal warning about seatbelt regulations.

Status quo fine in Fitzroy


Students meet to discuss making schools safe and welcome EDDIE RWEMA

More than 350 high school and intermediate students gathered at the Ottawa Civic Centre on Nov. 19 for the Ottawa Catholic School Board’s 18th annual Student Peace Conference. The goal of the conference was to challenge students to realize it’s within their power to make their schools into communities where all students feel welcome and safe.

“We are trying to have students become more proactive in working towards making their schools all inclusive, secure and welcome,� said St. Paul High School principal Bill Barrett. This year’s conference focused on the board’s theme, “Though many, we are one body,� which challenged students to be accepting and recognize that even though everyone is different, we all have much in common. Students explored the idea of using art, including music, drama, dance, spoken

“They discussed how art can be a way of challenging us and communicating to other people about the need to work to make the world a better place and more inclusive� added Barrett. Gordon Butler, chairman of the Ottawa Catholic School Board, said the annual Peace Conference is a centrepiece of the board’s program. “A vital part of our social justice curriculum is helping students learn the importance of taking responsibility for their actions,� he said.

word poetry and visual arts, as a powerful tool of activism. The conference featured small group discussions led by a team of student leaders from Notre Dame High School and musical numbers that celebrated the themes of justice and working for change performed by the Holy Trinity Rhythm and Blues Band. Their songs focused on the ways music and other artistic forms speak to people and challenge them to work for a better world.

Sports Fitzroy Harbour wrestler Liam Mayhew, bottom, won silver in Montreal on Nov. 27.

Wrestlers take medals in Montreal for third place and won the match easily. Darren Mayhew, also in the bantam/cadet category, won three matches to capture the gold medal. His first two matches were won in the first round fairly quickly against some experienced wrestlers, but his third match for gold was a tougher one. In the first round, Darren outpointed his opponent from Brampton, but in the second round both boys were scoring points and it came down to Darren pinning Diego near the end of the round. Liam Mayhew was the Arnprior club’s last competitor of the day in the Benjamin/peewee division. In this weight class, the top three competitors have been wrestling each other for the last couple of years and there has always a different result.

In his first match against a wrestler from Montreal, Liam won with a pin while in his second against an experienced wrestler from Mississauga he won on points. This put Liam into the gold metal match against the boy from Brampton who had won Canada East 2010. Liam put up a good fight but in the end lost by a pin and received the silver medal. Coach Kevin Mayhew felt this was a great start to the season for the boys. Arnprior Wrestling club senior members and Arnprior District High School wrestlers will next be competing in Renfrew this Saturday, Dec. 4 and in Kingston Dec. 11. For more information regarding the club, call Kevin Mayhew at 613-6230673.

Carp hockey player prepares for Team Canada junior camp West Carleton Review

Carp’s Calvin de Haan is one of three veteran players from last year’s silver medal national junior team invited to training camp. The Oshawa Generals defenceman played in four games at the international tournament, registering one assist. He joins 38 others for the Dec. 12 to 15 camp, to be held at the Mastercard Centre in Toronto. Thirty-four of the 39 players invited to the camp are from the Canadian Hockey League including 10 from the Ontario Hockey League.

CALVIN de HAAN “I’m really looking forward to it,” said de Haan at the Hockey Canada press

conference. “Hopefully I can make the team and go from there. It is a really big honour.” De Haan has two goals and 18 assists for 20 points in 20 games since returning to the Generals from the NHL New York Islanders on Oct. 6. Canada will play three pre-competition games leading up to the tournament including on Dec. 20 when they face Team Switzerland at the General Motors Centre in Oshawa. The 2011 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship will take place from Dec. 26 through Jan. 5 in Buffalo, New York.

Three members of the Arnprior Amateur Wrestling club – Adam Redpath of Arnprior and Darren and Liam Mayhew of Fitzroy - travelled to Montreal Nov. 27 to complete at the Quebec Open. More than 200 wrestlers aged from 8 to 19 from Quebec and Ontario participated. Redpath, in the bantam/ cadet category, started the day with a bye, so had to wait a while for his first match, which resulted in loss. He had to win his next match in order to wrestle for third place. His competitor was not as experienced and Redpath showed great character in not pinning him immediately but wrestled with the boy to give him experience before winning by points. Now he was wrestling

Gift Guide


Avoiding gift-giving disasters this holiday season By Kate Mervynson (NC)—It’s difficult to find the perfect gift, but it’s a lot less difficult to avoid the wrong gift. Deals and shopping website has some advice to keep awkward silences to a minimum when it’s time to unwrap presents. Don’t assume that in-store and online prices are the same. Sometimes, competition drives online prices lower than the in-store prices at the same retailer. At the same time, bargain-hunting sites like also feature additional online discount codes or free shipping promotions to save even more. Parents get to “enjoy” children’s toys

as well. Your nephew might be crazy about a big drum set or an ultra-realistic remote control spider, but his parents and siblings might not be. Try a handheld music game (with volume controls) or a non-scary remote control car instead. Do some research. If you’re buying a video game, make sure you’re buying the right system and that it’s the current version. You don’t want to show up with the hit game from 2007. Likewise, if you’re giving sugary treats or wine as

gifts, make sure you’re not distributing them to dieters, diabetics or teetotallers. Be wary of “good intentions”. Even if you mean well, giving gifts like a self-help book, a gym memberships or a piece of exercise equipment may offend people. Instead, you could give a gift card to a sporting goods store or an MP3 player designed to withstand rigorous workouts. As for the self-help books? There’s never a good time to give them as gifts.

Holiday shopping for your parents (NC)—It’s holiday shopping season, and you’re almost done. There are just a couple of more gifts to buy, and you’ve been dreading them. That’s right, you’re shopping for your parents. They haven’t been very helpful either – all they’ve told you they want is grandchildren. Editors from, Canada’s largest deals and shopping website, are here to help with some ideas for parent-appropriate gifts: Good for Mom and Dad • A gift certificate to your parents’ favourite restaurant. • Spontaneous quality time – show up unannounced and take your parents out to a restaurant. • A GPS device. Go for a model that is simple and easy to operate. Good for Dad • A multi-tool. Dads like their gadgets. Moms like gadgets that don’t fill up two rooms in a house. Everyone wins. • Game tickets to your dad’s sports team of choice.

• A sampling pack from a local brewery. If you’re the favourite son or daughter, you might complement this with a pack of steaks.

Good for Mom • A nice perfume. Even if she doesn’t use it often, a nice luxury gift will make her feel special. • A gift certificate to a day spa. She’ll feel pampered, and she’ll get away from having to hear about your dad’s new multi-tool. • A digital picture frame. Preload this with family photos, including some embarrassing child photos that she loves. Your feelings on the photos are irrelevant. It can take some creativity, but giving something back to your parents is more than worth the effort. More holiday shopping ideas and ways to save money can be found online at RedFlagDeals. com.

(NC)—Designing with light is a way to dramatically enhance the mood, look and functionality of your home. As you gear up for the holidays, consider some tricks to layering light sources and finding a bulb to fit every occasion. Philips Lighting’s broad assortment of lighting products and technologies provide you with limitless options to create the perfect holiday environment…while actually saving the environment. Ambient light is “everywhere” light necessary for any room in your home. This is background light that can be adjusted to the time of day or occasion. Choose timeless fixture designs that will last through the years and outfit those hard to reach places with energy efficient bulbs like the new LED technology that can last years. Focal light is used to illuminate work areas in your home or to draw attention to a particular area of interest. Fixtures that can be moved and pointed can change the mood of your room and allow you to focus on different items, depending on the day. Light up your holiday ornaments, displays or mistletoe for a dramatic and fun effect. Shine a halogen indoor/ outdoor flood on your tree or another festive shape. If winter holidays are causing you stress, you can also light your way to well-being. Sunshine and daylight have an important effect on both our

Holiday lighting checklist: Twinkle and sparkle the safer way

CSA International, a leader in testing and certification, has created the following checklist to help Canadians avoid common seasonal dangers and keep the holidays glowing bright. • Out with the old: Carefully inspect holiday light strings each year and discard any with frayed cords, cracked lamp holders or loose connections. • Size ‘em up: Unplug light strings before replacing bulbs and check to ensure replacement bulbs match the voltage and wattage of the original.

Make certain that bulb reflectors are the correct size for the light string. • Spot the mark: When purchasing light strings, extension cords and electrical decorations, look for a certification mark such as one from CSA International that provides assurance that the products are tested and certified to the applicable standards for safety and performance. Also, ensure that outdoor light strings, cords, spotlights and floodlights are certified by CSA International and marked for outdoor use.

to a wall or cubicle. When hanging lights outdoors, keep electrical connectors above ground, out of puddles and snow and away from

• Watch the flicker of candles: Do not use open flames or candles on or near flammable materials such as wreaths, trees or paper decorations. • Designate those decorations: When decorating the tree, place breakable ornaments on the higher limbs to protect children and pets. Remember to always use flame-resistant decorations.

• Don’t be tacky: Never hang decorations from fire sprinklers, or allow them to obstruct exit corridors or exit signs, fire extinguishers and hose cabinets. Never tack or staple lighting strings or extension cords

• Don’t get juiced: Before working with outdoor wiring, turn off the electricity to the supply outlet and unplug the connection. • Fresh or fake, be safe: If you buy a real tree, make sure it’s fresh. Fresh trees will be less likely to dry out and become a fire hazard. Artificial trees with electrical lights should have a certification mark on them and should be made of fire-resistant material. metal eavestroughs. Use insulated fasteners rather than metal nails or tacks to hold light strings in place.

If spending December 24th in a crowded shopping mall is not your idea of fun, here are some great gift ideas that will save you time and excite and delight your friends and loved ones. Today’s technology has come a long way. From grandparents to grandchildren - everyone is able to enjoy the newest high-tech gadgets. For those with little experience buying today’s electronics, here are some tips to help you feel more comfortable while shopping for high-tech gifts: • Since everyone now has a cell phone or MP3 player, consider gifts that help enhance these products, such as headphones, portable speakers and entertainment docks. The number one hottest selling docking system at Apple stores across the country this fall has been the new line of Philips Fidelio speaker docks. With superior sound at an affordable price, don’t miss the opportunity to give the coolest gift on the block. • There are so many fantastic online ecommerce sites that you really don’t need to leave the comfort of your house or office to do this year’s holiday shopping.

Nearly three quarters of all hospitalizations among Ontario seniors can be attributed to slips and falls, a new report reveals. According to the Canadian Institute of Health Information, 71 per cent of all hospitalizations among Ontario seniors are as a result of falls. In Ottawa alone, one in four seniors suffer falls and many of those will repeat accidents if there is no change to their surroundings, medications, behaviours or the supports, said Ottawa medical officer of health Dr. Isra Levy. Speaking to seniors at the Council on Aging of Ottawa in November, Levy noted that falls affect seniors’ independence, self esteem and mobility, thus having a negative impact on society as a whole. The report says more than 125,000 hospitalizations were linked to falls by seniors between 2004 and 2008, with about 3,800

of those cases being classified as “severe injury,” which required the patient to be admitted. “Making a change to prevent falls is essential for older adults,” Levy said. “For many seniors, a fall can be the start of a downward health spiral that starts with a trip to the emergency department and leads to hospitalization, loss of mobility, independence and even death.” As the population grows older, it becomes increasingly important for physicians and caregivers to be aware of and prepared to deal with the issue, which threatens to significantly impact the overall health and well being of older adults, the report says.

• the safe use of prescription and over-the-counter medication • awareness of the built environment and the identification of hazards to reduce the risk of falling both in the home and in the community • keeping floors and stairs free of clutter. • getting active 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week. • wearing proper footwear with good support and non-slip soles and avoid loose slippers or stocking feet. • reviewing your medication with your doctor every six months.

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way ing wax-like drops project out from the tips of the innermost feathers. These projections are not feathers but the end of the central feather shaft (the rachis). As if these dashes of colour were not enough, the undertail region is a lovely rusty brown. The manners of these birds are as refined as their appearance. They gracefully flutter from branch to branch, politely bowing as they gently pluck either entire or pieces of fruit free from their resting spots. Then, with a refined swallow the morsel vanishes down the oversized gape. No matter how large the flock, the waxwings appear to rarely squabble over food. As they feed and move, wax-

wings constantly call. Described as a “trilled zeeeee or rattle,” the pleasing sound reminds me of the chattering music that thin ice makes as breaks up along a shore. Bohemian Waxwings come here from no nearer than northern Manitoba, and from as far as Alberta and points northwest. When fruit, their mainstay in fall and winter, is scarce out west, Bohemian Waxwings move southeast. In some years only a few arrive here. However, with flocks of hundreds already being reported, this could well be an “irruption” winter. BIRD COUNT The Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count, which takes place on Boxing Day, will provide a better idea of waxwing numbers. If interested in the count, please contact me for more details. Recent sightings include a partially albino Black-chapped Chickadee (Headley Brittle) and two Snow Geese (one a blue phase) in a flock of Canada Geese (Lee Champman), both sightings near Arnprior.

Recently Fran Lytle from Kinburn and other column readers have reported Bohemian Waxwings in our area. In all cases the birds were feasting on fruit. Last Sunday I came across about 100 of these lovely birds on Highway 15 just east of Pakenham. They too were eating and this time the meals were frost-turned-yellow apples on a Crab Apple. Two things impressed me about these approachable, robin-sized birds. The first was their remarkable beauty. “Sleek” is the best way to summarize their plumage, which overall is soft gray. Their crested head sports a black chin and mask, the latter framed by warm brown feathers. However, the real beauty lies in their wings and tail. The tail is dipped in bright yellow (as is that of their smaller, yellowbreasted cousin, the Cedar Waxwing, which nests locally and sometimes remains for the winter), and a streak of that same colour adorns the outer wing feathers, the primaries. When fanned, that mark can be seen as a series of yellow bars, one per feather, with the outermost two marks being white. Each of the innermost wing feathers, the secondaries, sports a white mark of similar dimensions. When the wing is closed, these marks coalesce to form a beautiful jagged line of white and yellow. But the colour does not stop there. Bright red and name giv-

# 3849 Buzz

# 3643 Jimmy

Buzz is gentle and easygoing and would make a great pet in a home with children. He seven-month-old neutered male was brought to the shelter with his sister to find new homes. He is a sweet, affectionate little cat who loves attention. Buzz likes to be held and cuddled and is playful and curious. Buzz is a quiet kitten who likes other cats.

Can you give this handsome kitty a home for Christmas? Jimmy, a one-and-a-half-year-old male, has been at the shelter since January, when he was brought in to find a new home because his owners were moving. Jimmy is shy when meeting new people, but once he is comfortable he is very affectionate and loving. He loves other cats and would be best suited in a home with at least one other cat. Jimmy would do best in a quiet home - he is playful but also likes his quiet times napping in the sunshine. Jimmy is an indoor only cat.

Supples the shelter needs: In desperate need of non-clumping cat litter, paper towels bleach and liquid laundry soap.

Sorting sheep from rams

West Carleton/March Council Notes

I felt it would be timely to include a detailed explanation of how snow removal efforts are assigned at the City of Ottawa. Public safety and environmental responsibility are the main concerns while clearing snow and ice during the winter months. The maintenance quality standards for the city’s roads, sidewalks and pathways ensure a consistent level of service is provided citywide to all residents. Roads, sidewalks and pathways with similar characteristics and function are grouped together in classes. These classes are then used to prioritize the delivery of maintenance, including the frequency of snow plowing, ice control and snow removal. When a snowstorm begins, city crews focus efforts to clear snow on high priority roads, main arterials and collectors to maintain bare pavement conditions. City crews are deployed to treat icy sidewalks and pathways as they become aware of icy conditions. When there is a snowfall of seven centimetres or more forecast by Environment Canada, winter overnight parking restrictions go into effect. When there is a snow accumulation of seven centimetres or more, city crews will plow residential roads to a snow packed surface. When necessary, de-icing materials will be applied to keep roads safe. City crews will not plow residential roads every time there is a snowfall.

and after work the Farmer searched for the lost ram, listening for the jingling of his collar bell. We couldn’t imagine Steve would head for the bushes, as sheep are afraid of the dark unknown of wooded areas. We assumed he was in the cornfield or down in the meadow, but we couldn’t find him. Finally the Farmer called our neighbour, who also had sheep. Sure enough, for the past day, he had been hosting Steve. Now our Suffolk ram is back in the barn where he wants to be, and he has some new roommates. The Farmer put some ewes in there with him, and hopefully they will become better acquainted with each other. After a while those ewes will switch places with another lot, until the whole flock has visited with Steve. Hopefully by the time we let him out again, he will have grown so fond of his ladies that he will not want to leave.

against the gate with our legs, the Farmer fastened a fresh blue cube of chalk to the ram’s halter. “I can never remember how these things go on,” he muttered as he struggled to connect the clasps around Steve’s barrel chest. For the next ten minutes we held Steve tight as we tried different buckling combinations with the halter. Finally we got it on him in a fashion that would not soon be undone. Steve groaned. And grunted. And belched. He was growing impatient of this game already. Together we pushed Steve outside. It was dark. I could tell he was scared. Why we decided to turn Steve out at night, I don’t know. In hindsight, it wasn’t the greatest idea. The next morning, Steve was nowhere to be found. He had obviously tried to get back into the shelter of the barn, because the gate to the lambs’ pen was open and all of our captives had been set free. Before

I got called in to work Sunday afternoon but – wonder of wonders – the farm work waited for me until I returned. After Sunday dinner (and several glasses of full-bodied red wine), the Farmer and I headed to the barn where our flock was barricaded. Our intention was to sort sheep. The ewes had to somehow be separated from the flock and ushered out the door, while the lambs were retained inside the barn. This proved to be no easy task. I found that if you grabbed both hind legs at the same time, the sheep would simply run backwards to help you out, sort of in a reverse wheelbarrow game.

Close to 250 people turned out for the ninth annual Food for Thought food and wine show, hosted by the Kanata Chamber of Commerce, at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites in Kanata on Nov. 18. This year’s event raised over $3,000 for the Kanata Food Cupboard’s winter campaign. “The event and the dollars raised would not have been possible without the support of our business community, whether through participation, contribution of services or donation(s),” said Rosemary Leu, general manager of the Kanata Chamber of Commerce. “Our restaurants, our chefs just outdid themselves,” said Leu. “The food was fantastic. We had a great variety. And we had seven different wineries representing different regions.” This year saw participation from a number of local restaurants, including best restaurant of the year winners in the 2010 People’s Choice Business Awards: Phu-Yen, in Kanata, which prepares popular authentic Vietnamese and Chinese dishes; Heart and Soul Café, in Dunrobin; and Napoli’s Café, in Stittsville. “I think it’s wonderful,” said first-time attendee Nicole Andrecheck, who was there celebrating her husband Mike’s 60th birthday.

good too.” Mike said it was a great way to spend his birthday. “I think it’s terrific,” he said. “I like the way it’s organized. The food has been great and there are no lineups.” The two travelled to Kanata from Ottawa Centre and spent the night in the hotel, which offered discounts to those who attended the event. “The food and wine of course (is great),” said Katimavik resident Janet McLean, who has been coming to the event for the past three years. “But I always enjoy the crowd, meeting the people who made (the food).” McLean attended the event with her husband Rod, who canvassed the city for donations for the silent and live auctions. Items up for grabs included a Senators hockey package and an entire bed set. “We were able to raise a lot more money for the food cupboard,” said Leu. “We had close to $15,000 in value for the auction items. I think we’ll certainly be able to contribute more to the food cupboard this year than we did last year.”


Last year, the Chamber donated $2,500 to the Kanata Food Cupboard. “We appreciate your support, the Kanata Food Cupboard appreciates your support, as does the Kanata Chamber of Commerce,” said Rick Chase, the emcee for the evening. “From my point of view this way my first Food for Thought, it’s a lot of work to put something like this together but we had so much support from our volunteers,” said Leu. “Our volunteers are very important to us.” 417024

Judy and James Gardiner of Gardiner Tree Trimming and Removal were called to remove from a backyard tree in Kinburn recently. It had been in the tree for three days before James climbed a 17metre black willow tree to rescue the little black and white cat named Maggie. It was bitterly cold and the wind was blowing the top of the tree back and forth. The little cat was pacing back and forth and climbing higher but as soon as James got closer she was very happy to climb into his jacket to be brought to the ground. She was rushed to the vet to be examined.

On Nov. 10 we had speakers from Green Valley Environmental - Bill Seabrook, Steve Boulet and Melissa Hillier - present an excellent and informative seminar on Septic Systems. They provided a comprehensive overview of how systems work, what can go wrong, and advice regarding maintenance. We learned that one common problem is that homeowners pump their tanks too often! This takes out the “good” bacteria, and can shorten the life of the septic tank. Who knew?
