TOPS IN OTTAWA West Carleton’s own Joanne Brown won a prestigious award this week. Check out her remarkable 2010. 19

Voting ends next Wednesday, Jan. 26, in the 12th annual Kanata Chamber of Commerce People’s Choice Business Awards. A number of West Carleton businesses and residents are up for prestigious honours, including Dave and Nancy Hayley in the Citizen of the Year category for their work co-ordinating volunteers at the Morris Island Conservation Area. “I didn’t know we were nominated,â€? Nancy said, when contacted for reaction. “I think it’s a great honour. But it’s more than just us. Granted, we’ve been doing it for a long time, but we just got the ball rolling. All our neighbours are really great.â€? Once called Ottawa’s best kept nature secret, Hayley said Morris Island just west of Fitzroy Harbour grows more popular by the day. When she and Dave went down Sunday, for instance, she spotted many tracks and dog prints. “It’s become more and more popular over the years,â€? she said. In past years the Citizen of the Year category was handled the same as the other 10 categories, meaning one winner selected from Kanata, one from Goulbourn and one from West Carleton. But according to Kanata Chamber of Commerce general manager Rosemary Leu, the gala event Feb. 24 at Brookstreet Hotel – attended by some 300 people last year – may reveal one overall winner. “We haven’t made a ďŹ nal decision on it yet,â€? Leu said. See ‘Businesses’ page 2

Leu said the awards are a way of recognizing and rewarding businesses and groups that reaches above the expected level of service. It also helps businesses that may be beneďŹ tting from clients in the immediate hamlet or village to reach a larger audience. “It’s about recognizing people in our community that goes above and beyond, and it comes from people who know best and vote for their favourites,â€? she said. “The business community is so important in every aspect to the entire community.â€?

“And it could be that we have one winner in the technology business and professional services business categories, too,â€? Leu said. “We have an excellent number of nominations this year; a great response with over 4,000 votes so far.â€? Some West Carleton businesses and organizations nominated in various categories include: • Community Support/Non-ProďŹ t Organization: Carp Ridge Learning Centre, Venta Preparatory School, West Carleton Food Bank, and Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre; • Tourism Business: Carp Farmers’ Market, Diefenbunker, Eagle Creek Golf Course, Greensmere Golf and Country Club, Penny’s Fudge Factory, and the West Carleton Banqueting Centre; • Health & Wellness Business: Carp Family Dentistry, Carp Ridge Eco Wellness Centre, W.E. Johnston Arena Ice Skating Rink, and Yoga & Tea Studio. • Large Business: Dunrobin Village Meat Company, Jorgensen RooďŹ ng, and Nelson Water Systems.

• Small Business: Cappuvino, Carp Ridge Natural Health Clinic, Penny’s Fudge Factory, Tails & Trails Country Pet Resort, The Glass Case, and Yoga & Tea Studio. • Best Restaurant: Cheshire Cat Pub, Heart & Soul CafÊ, La Osteria, Sammy’s Pizzeria, The Lighthouse, The Stonehouse Bar & Grill, and The Swan at Carp. • Retail: Cappuvino, Heart of the Valley and The Glass Case.

This particular project required speciďŹ c expertise and the museum and the public is lucky the perfect group came forward, says Carlile. “I’m just thrilled with the way it’s gone and believe it will be a great addition to the museum,â€? says Carlile. The stop was built around 1896, a birth year it shares with the museum building itself. Marshall’s Bay is named for John Marshall, who operated a forge in the northwest corner of Fitzroy Township from 1825 to about 1860. It stretches from Goodwin’s Bay to the lower bay near the mouth of the Mississippi river. The area was a popular tourist hub that was also the site of well-known naturalist and photographer Charles Macnamara’s cottage “It was used until the late 1950s when CP was going to tear it down,â€? says Carlile. Local farmer Ross Elliott purchased it at that time and used it as an outbuilding on his property. Before Elliott passed away a few years ago he offered the historical piece to the museum and Carlile is very pleased to have it. Work on the exhibit involved removing it from the donor’s shed and relocating it to the Kenwood Centre for restoration work. Mark Nibourg and Kenwood staff are to be commended for the generous donation of space while the ag stop underwent its restoration, says Carlile. “He’s been a huge supporter of the museum and our projects.â€? The internal and external skin of the structure had to be repaired and rebuilt because of rot and infestation and other general repairs are being made. Volunteer contributions include a generous donation of plans from a Toronto engineering ďŹ rm with expertise not available locally. “They’re amazing plans,â€? says Carlile. While all the features may not be feasible there will be some that will certainly be implemented, she said. Volunteer John Brady said he has found endless entertainment in the hundreds of names carved and scrawled on the beams inside the building.

“The oldest one I’ve found is from 1918,â€? says Brady. “It’s really interesting to look back at the names and poems.â€? With the future of local rail lines in jeopardy, it’s increasingly important to recognize the importance rail transportation played in our history, as well as the potential in the future, says Carlile. “Railway made Arnprior the hub of the lumber industry,â€? she says. “I personally believe it’s very short-sighted (to pull up the lines) in the day and age when rail trafďŹ c is being increased and upgraded south of the border and throughout Europe.â€? Following a week of activities for Heritage Week, the museum is open on Tuesdays and by appointment. The third-oor Prince and the Prior exhibit is built and requires just a few minor ďŹ nishing touches. 442475-03-11

Two masked men held up the West Carleton Drug Mart Wednesday, Jan. 5 and stole a large sum of cash and narcotics. The men entered the store on Donald B. Munro Drive in Carp shortly before 2 p.m. and went directly behind the counter to the safe, warning the employees they had a gun. After loading the cash and narcotics into a garbage bag, the men quickly made their way out of the store and took off in an older model two-door blue and purple Honda Civic, which Photo by Derek Dunn A large sum of cash and drugs was taken during a robbery at the West had been parked behind the shopping mall. The first suspect is described as male 5’5” to 5’10” Carleton Drug Mart earlier this month. tall.

Police seek Constance Bay ATV stunt driver CONST. PETER JEON Ottawa Police Service

Police received complaints about stunt driving in Constance Bay and Dunrobin in early January. On Bayview Drive in Constance Bay at around 6:30 p.m. Jan. 4, police were alerted to an ATV flying up and down Bayview Drive after a complainant called 911 out of concern for pedestrian safety. The caller described the yellow ATV as going so fast that she could not understand how the male driver was able to stay on the road. Anyone observing this ATV driving or flying around Constance Bay is asked to report it to police. The next day on Casey Creek Lane in Dunrobin Village, a driver was suitably advised about his poor driving behavior and duly educated about stunting after a complainant observed a dark green Honda doing donuts in the neighbourhood and called 911. Always remember, you are the eyes and ears in the community - your calls count. SCHOOL MISCHIEF

West Carleton High School reported a mischief to property incident Jan. 5 that occurred at around 10 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 19. Surveillance cameras captured an unidentified SUV driving onto the school property and doing donuts around the front lawn. Due to the milder weather at the time of the incident, it is suspected that the spring thaw will reveal the true nature of this stunt. FIRST DEER CRASH During the first week of January, West Carleton reported one deerrelated collision while Rideau-Goulbourn reported two collisions. So, for the first count of the year, the score is two-to-one in favor of West Carleton.

By the time police and fire services arrived on scene the house was fully engulfed in flames. As the house was under renovations, it was unoccupied at the time of the blaze. SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES On Jan. 5, a 911-caller reported a driver of a bluish-grey van taking pictures of houses along Old Carp Road in West Carleton. The caller provided the 911 operator with the licence plate number of the suspicious vehicle. On Jan. 6, a complainant from Corkery Woods Drive in West Carleton called 911 shortly before 9 p.m., after he observed a suspicious male moving around his community and became concerned that he might be casing the neighbourhood. The complainant stated that the man, possibly Cau-

casian, was dressed in all black and had his hood up. Within minutes of receiving the call, police searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect. The Ottawa Police Service received 41 general calls for service from West Carleton from Jan. 1 to 6. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing Highway Traffic laws, responding to false 9-1-1 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa fire, paramedics and bylaw services. The West Carleton Police Centre is located at 5670 Carp Rd. and can be reached at 613-236-1222, ext. 2982. The centre is a “community problem-solving centre” and is responsible for the delivery of the Ottawa Police crime prevention programs. It is not an emergency response centre.

Spirit of volunteering isn’t dead

C

anadians are often known for their generosity, but it might be a reputation that’s slowly slipping away. According to National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating, between 1997 and 2000 the number of adult Canadians volunteering fell from 31 per cent to 27 per cent. Locally, Volunteer Ottawa has seen an “alarming” drop in participation from those aged 24 to 40. That particular demographic sees an 18 per cent drop in volunteers. Youth, meanwhile, are putting in their required hours, if for no other reason than to earn their high school diploma. And a quick glance at any volunteerrun organization will show that a lot of retired people have found something altruistic to do with their time. But that missing demographic in the middle is raising

a red flag locally. That’s why Volunteer Ottawa is looking for new ways to get people over 25 back to volunteering. Those new ways include teaching youth about the importance of lending a hand and instilling in them a sense of community. Those are important lessons, but won’t be enough to swell the ranks of volunteers from that middle demographic. This isn’t about the spirit of volunteerism dying. People understand the importance of helping. The problem is more likely one of timing. That missing demographic is struggling to juggle the demands of a career, ferrying children to and from myriad activities, all while often caring for aging parents. The postmodern world is a bit of a pressure cooker when it comes to time management. With so many competing priorities, it shouldn’t come as

a surprise that there’s a gap, at least in formal volunteering. After all, we cannot forget those little extras parents do that might go unnoticed. Those numerous walk-a-thons around the city are packed with families, for example, but it’s hard to measure that kind of informal participation. And then there are those who choose to donate money because they can’t give of their time. The United Way certainly isn’t raising millions from youth and seniors alone. People want to help, and many do, just in varying ways. As for instilling a sense of community in youth, that’s a laudable goal everyone – parents, teachers and associations – should work toward. It’s that legacy that will see these youth help where they can during their working years, and then return to volunteer when the kids get a little older.

Warning: watch out for new warning labels We enter the new year with stronger warning labels on cigarette packages. Does it seem like we’ve entered every new year with stronger warning labels on cigarette packages? And have those stronger warning labels worked? Good question. Something is working, at least in the long term. Way fewer people smoke now than did 25 years ago. If you are old enough to have been smoking 25 years ago, you will remember New Years Eve parties where everybody smoked. And you will count up the number of those people who still smoke, and find almost none. So clearly something is working. And the warning labels are a lot stronger now than they were 25 years ago. So, is that it? Probably not. What else changed in those years? Well, social pressure is a big one. Suddenly, it was not cool to smoke, especially if you were an adult. Hosts stopped supplying ash trays at their houses. Smokers had to step outside, where the odds are it would be cold, in this country. Offices banned smoking. Stores and movie theatres banned smoking. Malls banned smoking. Airports banned smoking. All of that made smoking a lot less convenient and a lot less fashionable. Suddenly, you were a pariah if you

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town smoked. The most severely addicted would persevere. You can still see them, outside, huddled in the cold. Most others gave it up. To understand how much life here has changed, look back to the ’60s and ’70s where you could smoke a cigarette in the grocery store, light up in a university seminar room, on an airplane, in a movie theatre. If we could figure out what caused this big shift in our thinking, we could use it to attack other social problems, as well as prevent the development of new smokers. However, one factor has to be cost. According to Mr. Google, you could buy a pack of smokes for $2.64 in 1985. Then prices more than doubled in the next decade. And the price paid now is double that again. Does it surprise you

that fewer people will pay that price? The big factor in the increased cost is taxes. Raising taxes, always a delicate matter politically, can have some embarrassing side effects, such as the dramatic rise in cigarette smuggling in the early ’90s. Which may be why the federal government, rather than bumping up the cost of cigarettes still further, chooses instead to bump up the horror factor on cigarette packaging. There is almost no political price to be paid for this. And if it really worked, it would be good to see the principle applied to other dangerous substances. How about photos of rotted livers and mangled automobiles on liquor bottles and cases of beer? Not going to happen, you say. You’re probably right. And it probably doesn’t matter, anyway. As a society, we are frightened enough already, what with one thing and another. As graphic and sad as the new labels are, it’s not as if smokers were not aware before that they are doing something dangerous to their lives and others. The smart thing to do would be to make them pay more through higher taxes. Higher cigarette costs would be a deterrent and the additional tax revenues would be useful in this age of high

deficits. But there isn’t a government alive today that will risk increasing taxes. So we are left with warning labels. If that’s what it is to be, maybe the labels should take a different approach. Clearly smokers aren’t afraid to die. But maybe they are afraid to be shunned. Warning: Cigarettes make you stand outside in the cold while everybody else is having fun inside. Warning: Cigarettes make your clothes smell. Warning: Smoking makes your children sad. There remains the question of how to warn high school students. Perhaps a warning label telling them that smoking is something their parents liked.

Number of measles infections in Ottawa rises to ďŹ ve eddie.rwema@metroland.com

The number of conďŹ rmed measles cases in the Ottawa area has risen to ďŹ ve after four new cases of the disease were diagnosed. The city’s health authority reported last month one person had contracted the disease in early December after returning from international travel. While most people are immunized against the measles, Ottawa Public Health has urged residents to ensure their vaccinations are up to date Measles is spread when an infected

person coughs, sneezes or talks. It can lead to ear infections, pneumonia and swelling of the brain. The last case of measles in Ottawa was reported in 2002. Symptoms of the virus may include fever, cough, and tiny white spots in the mouth. A rash may also develop on the face, body, arms and legs. Within 3 to 7 days after infection, a red blotchy rash will appear, ďŹ rst on the face and then spreading to the body, arms and legs. Occurrences of measles in Ottawa are very rare due to the highly immunized population, but health ofďŹ cials

warn it is very important for young Health Information at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 580-9656) children, teens and adults including or by email at healthsante@ottawa.ca. health care workers born after 1970 to keep their measles vaccination up to date. The measles vaccination is also recommended for people visiting many international travel destinations. Pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems, and children under the age of one are most at risk from the disease.

The largest communitybased health study ever conducted in Ontario is underway and area health-care providers are looking for volunteers. The Ontario Health Study is a long-term project that aims to help scientists understand the causes, prevention and treatment of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, asthma, and diabetes. “With this study we have an opportunity of creating a program that is going to provide the next generation of medical discoveries,� said Dr. Brent Zanke, a researcher at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. The study began with an initial phase in which more than 8,000 adults living in Ontario took part. The main phase of the study is now open to all residents of Ontario who are at least 18 years old. The study participants will be followed for their entire lifespan with a view of allowing researchers to see how environment, lifestyle and genes affect the risk of common diseases. “We are going to be registering as many people as possible in Ontario, and take a representative sample with an idea of following up with these people for their whole lives,� said Zanke. About 100,000 volunteers will be asked to visit a health clinic for extensive measurements of a variety of health factors, such as vision, hearing, lung function and blood sugar levels. “With the sampling of their DNA, we will be able to relate what diseases or conditions they might have in relation to what environmental exposure they might have,� Zanke said. “That will then produce medical in-

sights that would otherwise not be there.â€? In Ottawa, the recruitment drive is being advertised on OC Transpo buses, about 750 posters are going up around the city and the project is being promoted on Facebook and on Twitter. Large businesses and unions are also being asked to get their workers and members involved. “You need everybody, you need people that work in every sort of spectrum of society in every age group because then you get an accurate sort of snapshot,â€? said Zanke. He compared the study’s ambition with a similar project started in 1948, called the Framingham Heart Study, which identiďŹ ed the risk factors for heart disease. Those factors were determined through a similar population study using a small suburb in Boston, where the area’s entire population was enrolled and their personal habits (such as smoking and drinking alcohol) and health factors catalogued. For those who get involved in the Ontario study, Zanke said they could potentially occupy a similar place in history. “They are contributing to the body of knowledge that is going to help the next generation of people to understand their diseases and derive great treatment from it,â€? said Zanke. Of the 13 million people in Ontario, about 9.5 million adults qualify. Planners hope at least 20 per cent will register. Nearly all universities and teaching hospitals have endorsed the study. Medical researchers at universities, research institutes and hospitals across Ontario are conducting this study. The governments of Ontario and Canada are funding the Study.

Residents bring concerns, examine plans to expand Carp landfill DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Almost 60 residents braved the cold on Tuesday at the Carp Agricultural Hall to attend Waste Management’s open house on its plans to expand the landfill. Many came to pepper Waste Management staff on the effects of the newly-named West Carleton Environmental Centre. They asked about possible increased odour and heavy-truck traffic, liners that may not prevent tainted water seepage and more. Bert Groot-Koerkamp was among those with concerns. While he says he has little sympathy for those who move near a landfill because houses cost less, primarily residents across Highway 417 in Stittsville, he likewise asserts that Ottawa has enough landfills. “Let them go somewhere else and pollute the soil there,” GrootKoerkamp said. “I’m going for the incinerator. You can turn it into electricity.” Waste Management isn’t considering high-powered ovens to burn garbage and feed the energy

Site manager Ross Wallace said the company’s plan to combine recycling with storage is the most cost-effective and advanced way to solve the city’s garbage problems. “We were expecting a few more, but it went very well,” Wallace said. “The community at large is responding well. We are getting a positive response. You’ll always have your detractors.” Other sessions were planned for the west end.

Oliver sends his love to everyone Thank you to everyone who sent cards, emails, phone messages and texts full of warm wishes over the holidays. It was a wonderful Christmas on the Fisher farm. One of the notes I received was from Stinky the kitten, who has been renamed Oliver by his adoptive humans. Here it is, in its entirety: “Still tired from the move – though adjusting well to my new digs. From what I can tell, the ‘holiday’ season is upon us. This time of year seems very special – the landlords have set up a beautiful tree and have decorated it with wonderful ‘toys’ for me to bat and swat around the living room. Honestly, every time I knock down one of these ‘toys’, the landlords pick it back up and return it to the tree – I’m assuming for my later amusement. I’m enjoying spending all this quality time with my new found family. They seem nice, but, if I were to make a small comment, they’re a little cheap with the treats for my taste. Don’t get me wrong, they feed me well, but all I want are those treats! I could eat them all day every day - if

THE ACCIDENTAL FARMWIFE Diana Fisher only they would let me. I’ve started meowing in protest … I’ll let you know how that works for me. The new landlords are cool. They pretty much let me do what I want. One of them even looks like me – though he’s much bigger than me and makes these weird barking noises - his name is Digory and we sometimes sleep together. Contrary to popular belief, I’ve never woken up with any fleas. He’s a veteran, so, for the time being, I tend to copy his

moves and his sounds – unfortunately, without much success. The best I can manage sounds like a guttural sneeze. The other two landlords think it’s cute when I do this, but they also really hope I’m not coming down with something. Last week they took me outside to play. Let’s just say, things were not how I remembered them. First of all, there was all this white stuff on the ground – I’m not going to lie to you, it gave me paws. Second, there were no lambs, donkeys or horses anywhere. Being new to the area, I chose to stick close to home. Besides, I don’t want to wander too far from my treats! Nowadays, I get most of my sleep while the landlords are away. Playtime mostly happens when the landlords get home from this thing called ‘work’. (Whatever it is, it must be fun because they always seem to be in a great mood when they get home to me). Because I feel that playtime is never long enough, I tend to indulge in a few extra rounds

A bull calf named Albert DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife

I was in the barn feeding the New Year lambs when the Farmer announced that Ginger’s water had broken. The commotion in the barn attracted the bull, Young Angus. The big black bull stepped softly up to the side of the pen and peered in. He mooed low and long. The calf staggered over to him and Ginger followed, holding him up with the strong, Velcro licks of her tongue. I watched as Angus craned his neck as far as he could into the pen and reached his tongue out to lick the calf. The next day, the calf was wandering around more steadily on his feet. After work that night I went back to the barn to check on the calf. He was lying in the corner, and Ginger was mooing at him, nudging him to get up. I spoke softly to her and she looked at me. I swear I could see worry in her eyes. I went back to the house. “Did you see the calf nursing today? Because I haven’t seen him eat yet and now he is just lying there.” I headed to the basement to mix up some milk replacer for a bottle. The Farmer wrestled the mother and child into a lambing pen (wish I had witnessed that feat) and fed it a bit of the bottle. It didn’t want to suck. Its tongue just lolled around and it struggled against the rubber nipple in its mouth. But we got some

milk into its belly. We fed it more before turning in that night, and I was up before dawn the next morning to feed it again. Ginger just watched as I tried to help her baby. She grunted soft little moos as a running commentary and her ears twitched with worry. But she didn’t mind us touching her calf, as long as she could still put her nose on him. I think that’s the closest we have ever been to Ginger, our skittish cow. As I was feeding the calf, I noticed its nose was bright red and its eyelids were pink. In sheep, that is a sign of a deficiency of some sort. The Farmer/Professor spoke to a friend at the college and discovered that sure enough, the calf needed selenium in order to have a healthy suckling reflex. He went to the co-op to buy some supplies. The next feedings were done with a drench (the calf is made to swallow a tube and milk is poured directly into its stomach) and I couldn’t bear to watch the uncomfortable procedure so I stayed in the house. The next day, after the selenium shot and a few drenches of milk, the calf was up and heading for its mother. As I write this, on Saturday, it has a spring in its step and it is nursing normally. Many thanks to Albert Koekkoek at the University of Guelph for giving us the advice we needed to save our little bull calf. We decided to name him Albert, after you!

at night. That’s when the landlords are subjected to the wrath of my Santa Claws. For some reason, however, this behaviour is being discouraged. Overall, things are great and I’m fitting in quite nicely in this new household. Please extend my holiday ‘best wishes’ to everyone on the farm (especially my brothers and sisters). Meow for now, Stinky – a.k.a. Oliver.” We have two more kittens in the house ready to be adopted, if anyone is interested. Please feel free to visit my blog: www.theaccidentalfarmwife.blogspot.com to see their photos. As we head into the New Year, it’s time to clear out the cobwebs, clean out the closets and attempt to stick to our resolutions. I will be doing my annual donation of ‘stuff I don’t need’ to charity, and getting down on bended knee to dust baseboards. My resolution is to avoid sugar. Let’s see if I can make that one last until at least Easter.

City council could reconsider boundary expansion LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

A new slate of councillors might have the desire to overturn the previous city council’s decision to limit the expansion of the urban boundary. The City of Ottawa is facing a slew of appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) from developers who are angry over the city’s decision to cut back the boundary expansion to only 230 hectares. The boundary places restrictions on development. Making it wider, as city staff had suggested, would allow more developers to sell and build on their land. Some city councillors are contemplating reversing the last council’s decision and instead following city staff ’s original recommendation: expand the urban boundary by 851 hectares – enough to provide for the number of new homes needed to house Ottawa’s expected population growth in the next 20 years. The 230 hectares council settled on would allow enough growth for the next 15 years. At a briefing for councillors on Jan. 18, some new councillors questioned why council had made that decision in the first place. “My question is more about how we got here,” said Coun. Allan Hubley, the new representative for Kanata South. “Because I am wondering how we can say that for the next 15 years, we only need 350 hectares of land for building, but all of a sudden after 15 years we need another 500-plus (hectares).” The city’s planning committee and council do have the authority to override the previous council’s decision, said the city’s top lawyer, Tim Marc. The issue will be discussed at the planning committee meeting on Jan. 25 and that’s where a city councillor could make a move to potentially expand the urban boundary by a larger area. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess said the province “has an appetite” to expand the urban boundary by the originally pro-

posed 851 hectares and the province also wants to see longer-term planning, such as the 20-year time-frame originally proposed by city staff. He said increasing the urban boundary expansion by 851 hectares would reduce the number of OMB appeals and save the city money by avoiding lengthy legal hearings. Ottawa’s legal defence for the urban boundary OMB appeals will cost $400,000, he said. “There is no guarantee we can get out of an OMB appeal completely; however, if we go back to at least the staff recommendation: a 20-year outlook, 850 (hectares), that at least gives us a solid position,” Bloess said. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri said the OMB appeals open the door to an even larger boundary increase. Lawyers for the city told councillors some developers will ask the OMB to force the city to expand the urban boundary by between 2,500 and 2,900 hectares – a far cry from the 230 hectares council decided. But Bruce Engel, a lawyer hired by the city to defend the case, said there is no certainty that a council decision to increase the urban boundary would resolve the issues that brought developers to the OMB. “To unilaterally pick a new number and hope things would go away, I don’t think that would be a solution,” Engel said. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson also said the city’s strategy for expanding the urban boundary isn’t working, because it is already pushing potential residents to outlying municipalities like Arnprior and Carleton Place, where houses and land are more plentiful and less expensive. Those commuters who live outside the city but work in Ottawa aren’t paying for the services and infrastructure they put a strain on, such as roads, Wilkinson said. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder indicated that she felt the city’s plan for expanding the urban boundary should be aligned with its other long-term plans.

The City of Ottawa wants to talk trash in Constance Bay Sunday, Jan. 30. The city has begun a series of public consultation meeting on proposed garbage pick-up service changes. The 11th of 12 meetings will be held at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre from 12:30 to 2 p.m. It will be held prior to the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association’s annual meeting, which starts at 2 p.m. As part of the city commitment to sustainability, it will be accepting at the meeting old single-use and rechargeable batteries, as well as old cellular phones and batteries for proper disposal. The city is considering changing to biweekly garbage pick-up for urban, subur-

ban, and village areas. Organics would switch from weekly pick-up in the warmer months and bi-weekly collection in the winter, to no change or weekly, year-round pickup. Recycling plastics would go from biweekly to no change or weekly. Trash would go from weekly to no change or bi-weekly (with weekly collection of green bins). In rural areas outside villages, the organics service could stay the same or change to weekly in the warmer months and bi-weekly in winter or weekly yearround. Recyclables could go from bi-weekly to no change or monthly. Trash could go from weekly to no change or bi-weekly (with weekly collection of green bin). The review will also look at the city’s

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way mask. The bird – a Northern Shrike! Bird feeders attract small birds and right now it is likely that many of you have diminutive Common Redpolls coming to your feeders. These northern finches are smaller than sparrows and sport a tiny red spot atop their forehead. These and other feeder birds are fair game for a shrike or a hawk. It is easy to understand why most birds head for cover when a predator swoops in for a kill. But why

do some stay behind and not move when danger threatens? Are those birds simply suicidal and are destined to be removed from the gene pool? Of course the answer is: “No!” Any behaviour that is deleterious is soon weeded out by natural selection. Thus, there must be some advantage in not moving, especially when we see it happen in so many species. It seems likely that the frozen birds were ones that were feeding when danger first presented itself. They were too late reacting when their neighbours headed for cover, which is the best first response. The late ones had to decide whether it was more dangerous to flee and be more exposed to the predator or stay and not move, hoping the predator was occupied with a moving target. Most small birds have special marks such as wingbars, back streaks, head stripes, or eyelines that help to conceal their owner if it does not move. These disrupt the bird’s general

shape into segments, making the bird harder to see. By freezing, a bird allows these important markings to serve their purpose. And they do work, unless the predator has spotted the bird before it froze. If you are lucky enough to see a shrike make a kill, you will see that its bill is used, for with its songbird feet it has no other option. The hawk, however, uses its sharp, muscular talons to puncture vital organs. When it comes to killing birds, I suppose hawks are the more “talonted” predators!

Most people who feed birds in winter have witnessed the following scenario. You look outside and most of the birds have vanished. The few that remain look as if they were frozen in place. The White-breasted Nuthatch feeding upside down on the suet still hangs there, its head tilted up without any apparent sign of life. The Downy Woodpecker on the tree also appears to be dead, as does the Blackcapped Chickadee sitting inside the feeder. It is if someone painted those birds in place. Minutes pass and still no movement. You wonder what is going on. If you look around you might spot the reason. It could be a Sharp-shinned Hawk that has dropped in for a meal. Or it could be another predator, one that has recently been reported at local feeders. That bird is Blue Jaysized but sports a hefty meat hook tip to its bill. Overall it is gray with dark wings and tail, and sports a black

Residents wanted for transit commission LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

For the first time, Ottawa residents can have a direct voice at the table during transit discussions. This winter the city created a new transit commission to oversee operations for OC Transpo, and now it’s seeking four residents to sit on the commission. “For the issue of transit, it’s a new era. It’s a new phase,” said Diane Blais, the program manager for council and committee services at the city clerk’s office. Transit decisions used to be made by a committee of council composed of council members. Now, regular citizens will be added to the mix. The positions are voluntary and registration is open now. The people who will be selected for the commission should have a background in issues relating to public transit: policy, planning, governance, finance and administration, Blais said. The selection panel, which is made up of members already appointed to the commission, would have to assess whether a particular individual such as a transit user would have enough expertise to be considered for the commission, Blais said. Interim commission chair Diane Deans (Gloucester-Southgate), Marianne Wilkinson (Kanata North) and Tim Tierney (Beacon Hill-Cyrville) were recommended for the transit commission selection committee, which needs to be rubber-stamped by

city council on Jan. 26. Like for any city committee, members must be an Ottawa resident over 18 years of age. City employees cannot be members – that includes bus drivers. Blais said the city clerk’s office has gotten many phone calls and emails from people who are interested in sitting on the transit commission, and she expects to receive about 100 applications for the four seats on the transit commission. “I expect there will be significant interest,” Blais said. The transit commission will report to council, but it will also have some authority to make decisions on its own. The commission will generally have one daytime meeting each month and the length of the meetings varies from a couple of hours to an entire day, although there could be more frequent meetings. For more information, contact Blais at 613-580-2424, ext. 28091 or committees@ottawa.ca The transit commission isn’t the only new city body seeking members. The new committee is seeking five citizen members to hear appeals on license and property standards issues. It’s slightly different from a body like the transit commission. The license and property standards committee is a semi-judicial board, which means it makes final decisions on appeals (its rulings won’t need to be approved by council). Members on this committee will receive some compensation: approximately $50 per hearing.

City’s top triathlete seeks even greater heights next Carp’s Joanna Brown wins major award DAN PLOUFFE Special to WCR

She’s now the city’s top triathlete following the Ottawa Sports Awards dinner on Wednesday, Jan. 19 at Algonquin College, and come next year’s banquet Joanna Brown of Carp may very well find herself in contention for the overall female athlete-ofthe-year prize. It’s been a swift ride to the top for the 18-year-old reigning world junior bronze medallist, although the Sports Awards recognition allowed her to pause for a moment and soak in what she achieved in the past year. “It was pretty cool to get,” says Brown, noting fellow Bytown Storm teammate Matt Vierula was last year’s triathlon recipient. “It’s nice to keep the receiving of the award within our club.” Brown’s remarkable 2010 season started with a bang as she captured the Pan American junior title in Mexico, which helped set the stage and build up confidence for the rest of the year. Brown flew to a national junior championship and even won a junior series event in Quebec where she missed a turn and had to run an extra kilometre. The successful run continued at the world junior championships in Hungary, where she became just

the third Canadian to ever reach the podium at that event. “I really didn’t know what to expect going into the race, but the outcome was great obviously,” Brown recounts. “I really got to show how hard I had worked and how committed I was to the sport. It was really cool.” Brown enjoyed experiencing the different culture in her first trip to Europe, as well as meeting new people and “seeing some of the faces I’m going to be racing against for the next 10 years.” “It was a little look into my future,” explains Brown, who speaks with no doubt in her mind about what lies ahead. “I’m going to be representing Canada for sure at the Olympics.” Brown will soon be graduating from All Saints Catholic High School after taking a break last spring semester to train full-time for her sport. That’s a plan she intends to follow this springtime as well before beginning university studies next fall in either biomedical sciences or human kinetics. “(School) has more of an effect on me than I even know – I’ll just be tired or worn out and it won’t

necessarily be from training, it’ll be stress from school and trying to get things done,” notes Brown, who plans to stay in Ottawa and study at Carleton or Ottawa U for at least one more year. “I rely so much on my mom and my dad and the support team that I have here to keep me going.” It’s full steam ahead for Brown as she begins to prepare herself for the transition that will come after this season – as a senior athlete, the triathlon distance will double in each segment to the standard Olympic length from its current 750-metre swim, 20-km bike and 5-km run. But she definitely recognizes the importance of the 2010 season in allowing her to gain experience and build confidence towards her future goals, and to work out difficulties in training. “I got to see how far I could actually go,” recounts Brown, who’s looking forward to competing in a few World Cup races come the springtime and excelling once again in her last year as a junior-aged athlete. “I’ve got a huge season ahead. It’s going to be exciting.” University of Ottawa Gee-Gees quarterback Brad Sinopoli and Olympic speedskater Kristina Groves were chosen as the city’s top male and female athletes-of-the-year for 2010 at the Sports Awards gala. Visit ottawasportsawards.ca for a complete list of winners.

Carp’s Joanna Brown (right), who won a bronze medal at the 2010 world junior triathlon championships in Hungary, was honoured as triathlon athlete-of-the-year at this week’s Ottawa Sports Awards ceremony.

WCSS student squashes competition A West Carleton Secondary School student finished near the top at a prestigious squash tournament in Europe last week. Samantha Cornett, 16, who is coached by one of Canada’s best and a former touring pro, Heather Wallace pounded her way past all but three competitors in the under-17 British Junior Open. Cornett finished fourth in the Sheffield, England world tournament. Although ranked in the middle of the

pack, 17th out of 32, she brought down third-seeded Wee Nee Low of Malaysia. However, her impressive run was halted by top-seeded and eventual champion Heba Alass El Torky of Egypt. In the bronze-medal match, Egypt’s Salma Nassar downed Cornett in a lengthy battle. The daughter of Jack Cornett and Janice Lardner, the Grade 11 student won the 2007 girls under-17 title and the 2010 under-17 Belgium Open.

West Carleton cyclist to participate in world championships Carp’s Karl Hoppner is on the Canadian Cycling Association’s team that will compete at the world cyclo-cross championships Jan. 29-30 in St. Wendel, Germany. Hoppner, Eastern Ontario’s only contribution to the team, will compete in the men’s junior race. Matthew Knight of Ottawa will act as the team manager. These Championships will be the first experience for Craig Richey of Smithers, B.C., who is entered in the Men’s Elite category. “From the video I have seen, the course is very

hilly and looks like it will suit my strengths. “It should be a good one for me,” said Richey, who is currently ranked 83rd in the UCI World Cup standings. The first Cyclo-cross World Championships were held in 1950. Belgium has a strong cyclo-cross program, currently with six riders in the top eight of the 2011 UCI World Cup rankings. Canada’s top ranked rider in the World Cup standings is Mike Garrigan in 70th place. Garrigan will not partic-

ipate at the World championships in Germany. Cyclo-cross races last about one hour. Races are held on technical and hilly circuits of 2.5-3.5 km. Cyclocross provides a real education in cycling as it requires accomplished bike handling skills and unfailing physical fitness. Competitors have to carry their bikes over some sections.

Warriors battle flu, opponents to claim Peterborough tournament The players on the West Carleton Minor B rep team had a great weekend in Peterborough at the Liftlock Atom Tournament. The tournament hosts over 100 atom level teams every year for the past 25 years or more. With an opening game on the Friday afternoon, it was tough getting the legs going after the three and a half hour car ride down, the Warriors lost game one 2-0. Game two saw the kids come out firing on all cylinders and managed to hang on and win 2-1. Enter the flu bug. The flu hit West Carleton’s

one and only goalie right after game two; however Zack Dusome stepped up to the plate to tough out game three. The boys were battling hard but it was a tough loss. All hope was gone, with two losses and one win; however the good ol’ ‘goals for/goals against’ - and as Don Cherry would say “the hockey Gods were in their favour” - as they were instructed to show up for the semi final on Sunday morning. Sunday morning the kids went right back out and started where they finished the day before. This time Greg McGuey strapped

on the pads and the kids kept the puck away for most of the game and pulled out another victory. Off to the finals they went. The players had a short two-hour rest between games and went right back out on the ice and worked as hard as they could. Jack Bouwer stepped up in the game scoring three goals which gave

the Warriors the 3-2 win for the tournament. “Great work to all the players and a big thank you to all the parents from the coaches,” said Jennifer James of the coaching staff. “And from all of the players, coaches and parents on this team, we thank all the volunteers and the City of Peterborbough for welcoming all the teams.”

Even after losing their one and only goalie to the flu, the West Carleton Minor B rep team snatched victory at a tournament in Peterborough. They didn’t sweep every game, but the kids saw through adversity and made their fans proud.

Girls hit the ice at Scotiabank jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

About 300 young women, including some from Arnprior and West Carleton, donned their skates and hit the ice at Scotiabank Place Jan. 15 for the seventh annual Girls Hockey Fest. Carleton Ravens Players and Ottawa Senators Women’s Hockey teams coached the young women — who play in novice, atom and peewee levels. The girls were also given a tour of the facility — home to the Ottawa Senators — and given a talk by Olympic gold medalist Vicky Sunohara. “It’s not just about hockey,” said David Johnstone, Scotiabank community relations manager for Kanata and Stittsville. “The girls learn life lessons and hear from their role models as well.” The event had girls ranging in age from six-years-old to their teens and was free for participants. They started their day with tours and then hit the ice for drills and training. They also had an opportunity to see a videotape of their play to learn from. “At the end of the day we give

out 15 prizes, it is a lot of fun” some of the greats was not to be missed. “It’s great Johnstone said, adding that the just getting out there on the ice,” she said.

Valley Muskie club lands successful season It was good season for muskie fishing in 2010, but an even better sophomore year for the Ottawa Valley Muskie Club (OVMC). “Everything we’ve said we’re going to do, we’ve done,” said club founder Bill Craig, who added that members are from as near as West Carleton and as far as Toronto. “We’ve done well this year, membership-wise, with 30 or more. We’re happy to say several women have joined. Next year we plan on a tournament with the men doing the barbecuing and the awards banquet at East Side’s.” The plan is to have another kids’ day, when experts such as Craig bring kids out on the water with their equipment and teach some of the casting techniques

He said the Ottawa is rated “number one” in the world, thanks in part to the U.S. fishing out many of its lakes and rivers and zebra mussels harming the muskie habitat in the St. Lawrence River. However, though he’s caught many muskies over the years, he maintains a respect that anglers in

needed to land the elusive muskellunge. The club will also participate again this year at the Spring Fishing Show on the Carp Fairgrounds. Craig said the muskie season was a good one for anglers in 2010, although, because of the early spring, the weeds muskies like to hide in didn’t get a chance to grow. “It was hard for a lot of guys to deal with the lack of weeds,” he said, adding that experience and talking to other muskie fishers helps. The hope is that last year’s Ice Breaker Tournament and 50/50 draw, held June 5 on the Madawaska River with 35 participants, will be outdone in 2011.
