Garden idea grows Memorial Hall to boast new look this summer DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

A massive new retirement residence; a bronze sculpture of a soldier holding a letter; a new plaza in the village; and now a garden for the front of Memorial Hall: Carp has a busy summer ahead of itself. The West Carleton Garden Club is spearheading a community initiative to beautify the centre of the village, often the ďŹ rst building visitors take note of after crossing the train tracks on Carp Road. The plan is to landscape the property at the blue-coloured hall. “The landscape design includes a stone resurface to the front foundation, a retaining wall around the garden to level the soil, an interlock walkway up to a memorial bench, and, of course, perennial shrubs and groundcovers,â€? said Denise Burnham of the garden club.

“Eventually, a commemorative sculpture and plaque will also be placed in the memorial garden.â€? The hall is a busy meeting spot for area associations and groups, including monthly meetings of the garden club, which is donating its time and resources to plan and implement the project and to maintain the garden in the future. The club has met at the hall for more than two decades. The idea germinated when the club realized its $2,500 was “burning a hole in our pocket,â€? according to Burnham. The Carp library project, as beautiful as it is, is largely ďŹ nished. Club members were looking for a new challenge. The problem is, with the municipality insisting on insurance and other costs, the club can’t do the Memorial Hall project for under $20,000. See ‘Garden’ page 2

Near-even support for both Sterling and MacLaren as campaign closes Tory nomination battle looms DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

At roughly 1,000 supporters each, the March 31 ďŹ nal battle between Norm Sterling and Jack MacLaren is proving to be as exciting as any provincial election. The two have campaigned for several months for the right to represent the Progressive Conservative party in the riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills in the lead-up to Ontario’s 40th general election Oct. 6. Sterling, a centrist, is the elder statesman with 33 years experience in provincial politics. MacLaren, on

the right side of the party, is a former president of the Ontario Landowners’ Association and a farmer and engineer living in MacLaren’s Landing. The campaign has been feisty, with some calling exposure of internal party politics a sign of a “robust democracyâ€? and others calling it a ďŹ ght that threatens to split the party to its core. Sterling counters the charge he is a career politician by talking up his days as a lawyer. Some say Sterling doesn’t do enough to solve constituents’ issues; he insists he has “helped a lot of people.â€? MacLaren answers every challenge to his libertarian values with assertions that today’s governments lack the moderate, middle-way they once held. Some say his

Conservatives await Liberal rival He promised to serve no more than “two or three terms” and will dedicate his time to reducing the size of government. He maintains the way for the PCs to lose the coming election is fight the McGuinty Liberals for the centre. The campaign spilled into local and national newspapers when MacLaren attempted to displace the long-time riding executive with his own people, a move many saw as too aggressive. It failed. Then came the now-infamous letter to a Toronto newspaper from Conservative MP Scott Reid, accusing Sterling of neglecting his constituents. Reid, MPP Randy Hillier and MacLaren are further to the right on many issues than Sterling. The latter two have been accused of doing more than showing support for one another. Liberal backbencher Rick Johnson sent a letter to Ontario’s integrity commissioner accusing Hillier of “abusing taxpayer

dollars” by using his website and legislative resources to help Mac Laren win the nomination. On Feb. 10, MacLaren sent out a campaign email that routed through the MPP’s constituency website to his own. If the commissioner establishes that MacLaren’s email account is paid for through Hillier’s constituency funds, an “improper use” of tax dollars meant for non-partisan purposes would be leveled. Hillier calls the “frivolous” controversy a technical error by a website operator, and isn’t worried over the outcome. “This is politics. It’s just another partisan shot by the Liberals,” Hillier said. “It’s a technical error by a third party.” He also denies supporting Mac Laren, saying he never gets involved in nominations. However, that’s not the way Sterling sees it, linking the two as closely as possible. “They are either sloppy or doing something wrong,” he said, then refusing to comment further.

Garden needs donations Continued from front They were told that if they raise $7,500, the City of Ottawa will match those funds. “If I had the $2,500 myself, I could do so much with that,” Burnham said. “We weren’t expecting to have to raise funds. We’re all volunteers and I get tired just thinking about it.” Donna Caldwell, garden club

president, announced that fundraising has begun. Discussions are also underway with the City of Ottawa for approvals and consideration under relevant funding programs. “It’s an exciting project but all of a sudden the money’s due, by the end of March,” she said. Any organization or business that wants to contribute is encouraged to contact Donna at wcgardenclub@gmail.com.

Observers say the internal bickering could open the door for a high-profile Liberal candidate to steal the Tory stronghold in the fall election. But when Ottawa-West Nepean Liberal MPP Bob Chiarelli was asked on repeated occasions to address the campaign and provide an update as to whom might represent his party in the election, he was unavailable for comment. The nomination meeting at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville is open to riding members of the Progressive Conservative party. With files from Geoff Davies.

West Ottawa Soccer is looking for new locations to play after a ďŹ re at the Thunderbird Sports Centre on Feb. 28 severely damaged one of the indoor ďŹ elds. “We’re booking time at any indoor ďŹ eld in the city,â€? said Shelley Goertzen, general manager of West Ottawa Soccer. “We’re looking for gym time to backďŹ ll our competitive teams.â€? The Butler Building, which houses one of the indoor soccer ďŹ elds, was dam-

aged after a ďŹ re started in the kitchen area of the restaurant and extended to the roof. “The Butler ďŹ eld won’t be back in use until at least the fall,â€? said Goertzen. The dome, which houses a second soccer ďŹ eld, was undamaged by the ďŹ re. Goertzen said she expects players will be able to use the dome within the next few weeks. “We need clearance from the city to get back on the site,â€? she said, adding an air quality check must be conducted to make sure conditions are playable. “The

best case scenario is we’re back in next week.â€? Soccer tryouts, games and team sessions set to take place at the Thunderbird have been rescheduled at ďŹ elds around the city. Some of those include the Bell Sensplex, the OZ Dome and the Beckwith Recreation Complex. Registration is ongoing for West Ottawa Soccer’s summer programs. “The ďŹ re won’t affect summer soccer at all,â€? said Goertzen. The ďŹ re at the Thunderbird caused

an estimated $2.5 million in damages to the building and contents with heavy heat and smoke damage throughout the complex. The Thunderbird houses two indoor soccer ďŹ elds, a nine-hole golf course and other sports facilities.

Budget sees taxpayers contribute another 2.4% laura.mueller@metroland.com

Rural Ottawa residents will see an extra 2.4 per cent (about $60 for an average home) tacked onto their tax bill this year. City council made quick work of its budget on March 8, passing the budget in about four hours with few changes. After the budget passed, councillors broke out in a standing ovation for Mayor Jim Watson, whose ďŹ rst budget met his election commitment to keep the tax increase under 2.5 per cent. Some councillors, such a Rideau-Rockliffe’s Peter Clark, weren’t happy with the congeniality around the council horseshoe and said there should have been more debate. “If we are going to start out the process with ‘Thou shalt approve this budget,’ we don’t need all this discussion,â€? Clark said. Most of the discussion on the budget happened during committee meetings that have been taking place since the draft budget was tabled in January. Those discussions led to a few tweaks before council voted on it last week. The water and sewer rate is also going up 3.9 per cent, or about $24 for an average household. Last year’s tax increase was 3.77 per cent, and it was 4.9 for the two years before that to catch up from the 0.3 per cent increase in the ďŹ rst year of the previous council’s term. Councillors sped though each of the budgets for committees such as environment and community and protective services. Council had already passed the operating before a handful of councillors (Rainer Bloess, Bob Monette and Doug Thompson) raised their hands to object to portions of

YMCA pulls rec centre funding BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

YMCA OVEREXTENDED The YMCA was forced to pull its funding for the recreation centre because of commitments to three other major projects across the city, said Deirdre Speers, acting president of National Capital YMCA. The YMCA took advantage of last year’s federal stimulus money for renovations and upgrades to its fitness centres, such as the Orleans facility, but it became overextended paying for one-third of the projects’ costs, a con-

dition of the funding. “We haven’t pulled away from the project,” said Speers. “It’s not a decision that we won’t partner together.” The YMCA is still offering its services to help run the recreation centre “in a cost-effective manner”, she said. But the city has decided to move ahead without the YMCA and use its own staff to run the recreation centre. “The programming and the funding proposals that the Y put forward as part of this project no longer makes sense,” said Chenier. “We don’t believe the Y’s plan at this point will work with this configuration.” Wilkinson said she was calling a meeting of the project’s steering committee to discuss the loss of the YMCA funding and any changes needed for the plan. The city will ask the project’s designer, NORR Ltd., to look at what can be done to reduce the costs of building the recreation centre. A proposal to move ahead with a scaled-down version of the recreation centre will move to committee sometime later this month and to council in mid-April, said Chenier. The city will then hold a public consultation sometime in late April or May. “I just wish we’d known sooner,” said Wilkinson. “It’s really unfortunate, but that’s where we are now.”

Construction of the Kanata north recreation centre will be delayed another year after the National Capital Region YMCA announced it is pulling $6 million in funding for the project. “They’ve run out of the money,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “The Y has pulled out of the deal so we have to do some revisions to the plan – we have to take a hard look at things.” The $49-million recreation centre, which would have West Carleton in its catchment area, was slated to start construction this year and open in 2012. “It will mean the building can’t be opened until 2013,” said Wilkinson. The loss of funding – $5 million for the building and $1 million for equipment – will force the city to scale back some of its plans for the centre and either scrap or delay programs. The city must shave 1,395 square metres from the proposed 9,848-squaremetre building, said Dan Chenier, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and cultural services. “We are going to go back to council and committee to recommend the city go back to the original core project that was city-funded,” he said, which means scrapping plans to build family

and personal fitness areas, a running track and an expanded cardio area, trademark services provided by the YMCA. The city will still push ahead with building an eight-lane pool and core programs will remain unchanged, he said, adding there will be room for future expansion and other partnerships. The original plans for the recreation centre included a skateboard park, two outdoor basketball courts, a gymnasium and fitness centre run by the National Capital Region YM-YWCA, community meeting rooms and a water play area. The recreation centre will be located on a six-hectare site at 4101 Innovation Dr. near March Road and Terry Fox Drive.

Province targets elder abuse Between four and 10 per cent of seniors experience some form of elder abuse. It’s a statistic that Sophia Aggelonitis, the Ontario minister responsible for seniors called “unacceptable,” and pledged to fight with funding for awareness and prevention. “A lot of people talk about how it’s the silent or hidden crime and that’s something we need to change, get people talking about it so we can stop it,” Aggelonitis said. Aggelonitis met with staff, clients and stakeholders at the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre last month to talk about how different organizations can come together to provide support, end elder abuse and put a positive spin on aging. Helen Smith, chair of the Interfaith Network’s Reaching out to Isolated Seniors program, said that aging is often associated with loss and it’s time to look at the positives. The province has invested $900,000 annually for the Ontario Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (OPNEA). Locally Joyce Drouin, the elder abuse prevention coordinator for NROCRC talked about how she works with Ottawa Police Services to investigate claims of abuse. “When I was growing up no one talked about child abuse, alcoholism and intimate partner abuse, people kept secrets so those things were allowed to continue.

Now we have these things out in the open so there are supports for the families and help for those with addictions,” Drouin said. “Now we need to be doing the same thing with seniors.” Drouin, who does an impressive amount of work with the 20 hours a week she is able to work with the funding NROCRC receives, works with seniors in at-risk situations to find help and support. At 10 a.m. the morning of the conference, she was summoned to the phone and discovered a “serious case” of possible abuse she referred to police. “It’s still happening out there every day in homes you wouldn’t imagine,” Drouin said. “And we need to do what we can to stop it.” Once a case is established, Drouin works with the partner agencies to provide support for the seniors in the community for things like banking and grocery shopping. They also have an emergency bed program where a client will be placed in a bed in a retirement home for seven to 10 days while staff looks at possible next steps. NROCRC also offers free income tax clinics across their catchement for their lowincome clients. “Through our Elder Abuse Response and Referral Service we are able to assist seniors who are victims,” Sandy Wooley, executive director for NROCRC said. “With the aging baby boomer population, the need for our citywide service will continue to grow.”

Affordable housing a priority for mayor laura.mueller@metroland.com

In a rare gesture of community goodwill, neighbours are helping design and furnish an affordable housing development on Chrichton Street in New Edinburgh. While some shouting “not in my back yard” are labelled NIMBYs, others say “yes in my back yard” and are pushing for developments that could have a positive effect on their community. Jo-Anne Poirier, CEO of Ottawa Community Housing (OCH), says her group has seen far more success when it approaches neighbours and educates them about the benefits and importance of providing access to housing – before shovels hit the ground. For OCH, the sound saws and hammering is something that hasn’t happened in five years. A lack of funding, coupled with skyhigh maintenance costs approaching $60 million each year, means the non-profit group hasn’t been able to build any new affordable homes. But with Ottawa’s new mayor committed to making access to affordable housing a priority, getting people onside with potential developments could be more important than ever, Poirier said. As part of a $14-million promise to help alleviate homelessness and support affordable housing, during the election Mayor Jim Watson promised to create an opportunities fund with an annual $5 million budget, which would be used for a variety of needs from new construction and renovations to supportive housing. “We’re hopeful and very encouraged,” she said. “He has certainly committed to working with us to keep the other levels of government at the table as well.” Poirier said she has had initial meetings with the mayor and that discussions with stakeholders will continue early in the new year. OCH has completed an assessment of its buildings, so it already has a “roadmap” of where the community’s needs are and where investment in affordable housing should occur, Poirier said. Now, OCH just needs money.

But even with the necessary funds, a NIMBY attitude could stall or prevent affordable housing developments. And unlike the opposition to new condo or commercial developments that often get a lot of media attention, NIMBYism that aims to block affordable housing is an affront to human rights. That’s the message the audience at the latest Urban Forum lecture heard at city hall recently. Speakers including Marni Capp, the president of the Canadian Institute of Planners, and Sean Gadon of Toronto’s affordable housing office said that housing is a right and neighbours who try to block it from their communities are violating that right. Furthermore, NIMBYism comes at a cost. Eating into that tight budget for affordable housing is an estimated two to 14

housing strategy that includes geographical areas of high need that should be targeted for future affordable housing developments, Capp said. The City of Ottawa addresses the issue through its Action Ottawa plan, which offers grants and relief from municipal fees in order to facilitate development of Pitcher Allan Litva in 2010 action affordable housing.

But rather than take an adversarial approach, Capp, Gadon and Poirier argued that there are far more effective ways to get neighbours to support affordable housing projects from the beginning – often with even more positive outcomes. In New Edinburgh, Poirier pointed towards the redevelopment of a derelict home on Chrichton Street that is changing attitudes about what affordable housing means in a neighbourhood. While the fact that a decrepit building will be replaced is fuelling some of the welcoming attitude, Poirier said the neighbours have realized the importance of providing a safe, healthy home for people who need one – even if it is in their own back yard. Neighbours have been involved in designing the building, and now the community is taking it a step further by helping furnish the six apartment units. “It’s a tremendous act of kindness that we find very encouraging,” Poirier said. “There are many caring people in this community who are prepared to adopt and welcome affordable housing to their community.”

A 16-year-old male had reportedly freaked out on his mother after consuming an unknown quantity of MDMA (ecstasy) early on the morning of March 8. Emergency services were called in to help her deal with crisis and maintain control of the situation. The teen was taken to the Almonte Hospital for further observations. KICKING THE HABIT? Last Friday, a complainant handed over a bag full of contraband cigarettes to an on-duty patrol officer and told him not to ask any questions. DEER COLLISION COUNTERS Week 10 and the total number of deer collisions reported in the West Carleton and Rideau-Goulbourn wards equaled two, one for each ward. The score now stands at 28 to 9 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. SUSPICIOUS HAPPENINGS On March 5 around 4 a.m., a homeowner on Weldale Drive in rural South

Kanata called 911 after an unidentified male banged on her front door and then rang the door bell. As the caller looked on from the safety of her home, she observed the male walking away and then backing a vehicle into her driveway. The male left the area before police could arrive on scene. On March 8 at about 9 a.m. on the Richardson Side Road in West Carleton, a suspicious silver two-door Hyundai car was observed driving onto the Thunderbird property. The unidentified driver navigated his way around some barricades that were used to prevent access. When a security guard attempted to stop the car from driving around the property the driver sped off and eventually fled through an alternate exit. On further investigation of the vehicle’s licence plate information it was discovered the same vehicle had been spotted in the Rockland area after a complainant became concerned that the driver was casing the house. On Acorn Crescent in Constance Bay sometime during the overnight hours of Feb. 18, an unidentified person smashed in the front and rear windshields of a locked vehicle with a bat-like object. It appeared to the complainant that the suspect did not make any attempt to enter the vehicle

and nothing was reported stolen. VEHICLES TARGETED Unidentified culprits broke into a locked motor home in West Carleton sometime between 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 9 and 9 a.m. Thursday, March 10, and stole several pieces of commercial equipment. The motor home was parked in an open field off William Mooney Drive and it is believed the culprits broke into the vehicle through the passenger side window.

Reported stolen were a Honda generator valued at $2,000, a Honda Gorms transfer pump, a Dewalt grinder and a set of Mastercraft hand tools. Sometime between 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 9 and 6 a.m. Thursday, March 10, unidentified culprits rifled through a complainant’s unlocked vehicle on Baskins Beach Road and stole a pair of black sunglasses valued at $20. The calls were among 34 patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to from March 4 to 10.

Speeding tops list of summertime offences

Constance Bay beach party complaints decrease CONST. PETER JEON Ottawa Police Service

The O’Reilly Factor – 2010 in review. Okay, not the political commentator of Fox News, Billy O’Reilly, but even better, the Ottawa Police Sergeant Barb O’Reilly. Barb O’Reilly provides a synopsis of what went on in the West Carleton area in 2010, during the busiest time period of the year – summertime. Also, this synopsis provides an insight into what can be expected for 2011. Each year the Ottawa Police Service prepares a focused plan for West Carleton to address specific summertime concerns raised by community residents. The action plan runs from June through September and involves activities such as RIDE Programs, targeted traffic enforcement, and high visibility foot and bike patrols in known hotspots. Our activities are derived from complaints received, analysis of the calls for service for the area and the results of the environmental scan. Historically the top three concerns of Ottawa residents indentified through the environmental scan conducted by the OPS are speeding and aggressive driving, break-and-enters and thefts from vehicles. Following are some of the results of the 2010 West Carleton Summer Action Plan. From June through to September, 2,601 Provincial Offence Notices (PONs) were issued in West Carleton. Of that total, 1,043 were for speeding, 183 for stop sign offences, 87 for improper headlights, and 36 for distracted driving. The remainder of the PONs issued

were for document-related offences such as fail-to-surrender-insurance or driver’s license. Six RIDE Programs were conducted in West Carleton with 506 vehicles stopped, four roads side tests conducted and two three-day suspensions issued. Of the 173 calls for service attended to by OPS in Constance Bay from June 1 to Sept. 30, 25 were either alcohol-related, regarding beach-goers or both. In 2009 OPS received 201 calls for service in Constance Bay during the same time period, of which 28 were either alcohol-related, parties on the beach or both. In comparison, although the calls for service are comparable, there were only three calls for service in 2010 regarding large parties involving youths drinking compared to 16 such calls for service in 2009. On four occasions this past summer, the Ottawa Police Marine Dive and Trail Unit patrolled the Ottawa River up to Fitzroy Harbour. In total 35 warnings and five PONs were issued for marine-related offences. The unit also responded to one noise complaint regarding a boat. Generally speaking property crime such as break-and-enters and thefts from vehicles increase during the warmer months and are usually crimes of opportunity. Entry is routinely gained through an open window, an open garage or via an unlocked car door. With the assistance of an astute resident, the Ottawa Police were able to arrest a male and female team who were responsible for a number of rural residential break-and-enters.

Irish (and more) for a day

S

t. Patrick’s day is celebrated the world over, in countless countries by countless cultures. It is no longer a solemn religious ceremony or an act of political defiance. It is about family and friends getting together to share a few of the more popular aspects of a cherished people. On this day, March 17, we are all Irish. It is our hope the same will be said one day in the near or not-too-distant future about other celebrations. And it seems that is happening already. Many non-Chinese participate in the twoweek Spring Festival. Non-Indians are welcome to join “Diwali” or the Festival of Lights. Even “Eid al-Adha” or Festival of Sacrifice is something more and more non-Muslims have come to recognize in western countries. However, it is the Irish we have to thank for leading the way when it comes to sharing cultural traditions. Saint Patrick (c. AD 387-461) is the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. Little is known of his early life, though he was born into a wealthy Romano-British family in Roman Britain. At 16 he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken to western Ireland. According to his confessions, God appeared in a dream and told him to flee to Gaul - modern day France – to become a priest.

In 432, he said he was called back to Ireland as a bishop to Christianize the Irish and “save” them from their native polytheism. Folklore says St. Patrick used a shamrock to explain the doctrine of the Trinity. After 30 years of evangelism, he died and was buried in Downpatrick. In the 1798 rebellion, to make a political statement, Irish soldiers wore full green uniforms on March 17 to capture public sympathy. Many of Irish heritage today know much of the history associated with St. Patrick’s Day. The point in bringing it up is not to enlighten, but to show that – many hundreds of years later, in a land far away from the Emerald Isle – the culture and tradition remains strong. It even grows. The same will likely be the case for the Chinese, various Indian cultures, and the followers of Islam. So it should come as no surprise to those who mouth the refrain “they should become Canadian. They should accept our culture and leave that other stuff behind” – that it won’t happen. And it shouldn’t happen. Culture and a certain fondness, even loyalty, to one’s birth country, is a strong and positive force. Again, even for those who weren’t born in Ireland, whose parents or even grandparents weren’t born there, they still count themselves among the “Irish for a day.” As it should be.

Yes, it’s the 21st century — so what? The weakest of all arguments is that we’re in the 21st century. You hear it all the time. Somebody makes a proposal. Somebody else opposes. Then the supporters say to the opponents: “Don’t you know it’s the 21st century?” Those of us who grew up in the 20th century remember the argument. It’s just been updated a bit. There are provincial government proposals to loosen liquor laws at outdoor events. The police say they’re worried. The police are accused of not knowing it’s the 21st century. The police have a feeling that drunken louts in the new century will closely resemble drunken louts in the previous one. There is a proposal to put up some giant flashing billboard by the new convention centre, shining video and maybe, just maybe, advertising down on Rideau Canal skaters, tourists and distracted motorists. “It’s the 21st century,” the proponents say, when others ask why we need to complicate the natural beauty of that part of the city with humongous flashing pixels. The canal, of course, was built in the 19th century, before such electronic miracles were possible. Skating on the canal

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town was brought to us in the 20th century by a man, NCC chairman Douglas Fullerton, who thought that the skating alone provided all the entertainment people would need. He was even critical of the early, non-electronic version of Winterlude, for putting entertainment on the ice to interfere with the skaters. He would not want to be skating in the 21st century with that thing beaming pictures down on his head. In the 21st century that we all recognize it is possible to do all sorts of things that were not possible in the 20th. This does not, however, mean that we have to do them. Take Twitter, for example. With Twitter, you can tell the entire world, more or less, what you think in 140 characters or less. On the day the great editor and

writer Jim Travers died, tributes began appearing on Twitter, little notes saying how much Travers was appreciated, how much he would be missed. It was kind of a tribal ritual, with virtually everyone on Parliament Hill and many people beyond it, adding their abbreviated voices. Travers, who loved to laugh, would have laughed. Here was this technological miracle and people, one after the other, were using it to write five or 10 words saying, in effect, “I’m sad too.” It’s not that they weren’t sincere, it’s that this piece of 21st century technology trivialized their sincerity. A few days later, a memorial gathering was held at the Ottawa Conference Centre — a railway station for much of the 20th century. Many of the same people came and many others, 500 in all, and they behaved in an old-technology way. They talked and they listened and they laughed and they cried and they hugged each other. There was more power and emotion in that gathering than in a billion Tweets. The 21st century gives us the choice. We can Tweet or we can show up. Showing up still works best. In Ottawa, the second-weakest of reasons for doing something is that the city’s

image needs changing. People think Ottawa is dowdy, we are told by proponents of giant electronic billboards. We need to show some more flash. Well, do we really? What’s dowdy about Ottawa? We have, thanks to the NCC, no billboards along the Canal and the parkways. Most people don’t complain about that. Some rather like it. What else don’t we have that other cities do? We have restaurants and nightclubs and festivals and theatres and galleries and shopping centres. We can even put together a bit of a traffic jam. We also have a few things that other cities don’t have, such as a relatively peaceful life and an ease of access to the countryside. Even in the 21st century, why should we be apologizing for that?

To the editor: The article in the March 10 West Carleton Review will be of considerable interest to those families who have made their home in what was once Huntley Township for the last few generations. To suggest that we would allow a memorial to our war dead to disintegrate into the “crumbled concrete monument” that is located at the foot of Falldown Lane is an absolute insult. Our memorial to our war dead is located at the corner of Carp Road and Donald B. Munro

Re: Genetically modified food safety questioned, West Carleton Review, March 10. Katherine Willow says she hates the idea of fear-mongering, but this is exactly what she’s doing by making false statements about the safety of genetically modified food. What she should have included in her letter to MP Gordon O’Connor is that genetically modified crops are subject to Canada’s strict regulatory standards which ensure that Canadians have access to one of the safest food supplies in the world. Extensive safety reviews are completed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada to ensure all products are safe for people, animals, plants and the environment. In addition, regulatory agencies around the world including the World Health Organization, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, have all endorsed GM crops.

Biotech crops are a crucial component of agriculture today and they hold even greater promise for the future especially when you consider how they can bring health benefits to consumers by eliminating or reducing trans-fats; enhancing vitamin and antioxidant levels in fruits and vegetables and preventing blindness caused by nutritional deficiency in developing countries by increasing the amount of Vitamin A in rice. The fact of the matter is Canadians should feel confident to choose foods that contain genetically modified ingredients because Health Canada has declared they are as safe as traditional foods. Canada’s plant science industry welcomes questions about our products and looks forward to future opportunities to set the record straight about the safety of our products and our industry’s commitment to people, public health and the environment.

To the editor: According to Alan Mills (West Carleton Review, Feb. 24), it is nobody’s else’s business whether he and his customers want to have a little friendly competition killing coyotes. And anyone who disagrees with his opinion must certainly have a personal vendetta against him. I do not think that the media, nor the public, is that easily manipulated. I have been an unwilling witness to the behaviour these illegal contests are encouraging and supporting. I have seen infractions of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, yet neither the police nor the MNR are willing to deal with this issue.

pening from skidoos, four-wheelers and trucks. It is against the law to trespass, yet it is happening. I have seen a coyote being chased by dogs, with the hunter following in his truck, with no regard for public safety when the animals crossed a public roadway. Yet these hunting enthusiasts are the first to say to pet owners who have lost their animals to hunters, oh well, your dog shouldn’t be at large. Talk about hypocrisy. It is the sense of entitlement that bothers me the most. Other’s rights are not considered. I used to enjoy walking the fields with my dog, but times have changed.

Memorial Hall honours the war dead from Carp


Letter to the Editor

Conservatives not helping agriculture sector To the editor: As Chair of (Ottawa Valley Horticultural Association) OVHA, I can certainly feel for Ms. Willow of Carp Ridge Eco Wellness Ctr., as I have written to MP Gord O’Connor on many occasions about the lack of support for local farmers re the Conservative Harper government’s lack of initiatives in regards to unproven Genetically Engineered biotechnology. No responses are forthcoming and no questions are answered outright. These products are an effort mostly by Monsanto to get rid of small biodiversity farms. MPs Gord O’Connor, Cheryl Gallant and Scott Reid voted again, en masse, for getting rid of the agriculture program that was so effective in raising $2 million for inmates at Joyceville to feed themselves, as well learn to re-integrate in society to make way for superjails . No new programs were introduced to rehabilitate or educate inmates. This even while crime rates are declining. But I digress. As well, the Conservative Harper government voted, again en masse, against one of their own MP’s private bill C-474 to place a moratorium on GE alfalfa pending research how it may affect small farmers. I am sure that our MPs work hard. How-

ever, how hard are they working for us, their constituents, remains to be seen. And we should ask them that question before the next election. Why should we return them to office to represent us? Their voting patterns indicate they vote strictly how Mr. Harper tells them to without any regard to local needs. I had the opportunity of attending the Standing Agricultural Committee this week and watched first-hand the Conservative MPs and Conservative Chair block the Vote on Moratorium on GM Alfalfa, primarily to prevent them being on record as pro-Monsanto GM seeds and products like Roundup-ready alfalfa prior to an election. These products are not allowed for export to European Union so why are they “safe” in Canada. Do all their MPs believe as Kim Campbell that an election is no time to discuss important issues? Are we sheep? We seem to get the governments we deserve if we do not ask who are they working for. G. Bedard Chair OVHA and co-owner the Herb Garden Vendor at Carp and Ottawa farmers’ markets

southwest. Geese now have no trouble finding food during winter. As a result, their populations are still growing. The millions of geese in the tundra dig up roots of Goosegrass and other plants. Like living rototillers they turn smooth mudflats into dishevelled muck. This is having a tremendous effect on the coastline plants, as are goose droppings. Full of nitrogen, the faeces enrich the

soil with nutrients normally found in low levels. As a result, some plants are becoming more numerous while others are on the decline. The vibrant sounds of migrating geese and their distinctive V-shaped flocks are very much a sign of spring.

Do you have a country home that would make the perfect home for these husky buddies? Yoshi and Keeko were found running down a highway together in May. The shelter would like to see these two beautiful dogs placed together and will reduce the adoption fee for the right home. The dogs get along well with each other and are good with other large dogs. Keeko is about seven years old and Yoshi about three. They are housebroken and well behaved, they have lots of energy and enjoy going for long walks. Both are affectionate, friendly and they know some basic commands but would benefit from more training. They are typical huskies and can be quite vocal. The dogs enjoy each other’s company and will make a wonderful addition to their new home. Supplies the shelter needs: paper towels, window cleaner, bleach, liquid laundry soap and disinfectant wipes.

As gaggles of geese are now on the wing


Opinion

Hockey Night in Kemptville I didn’t raise any hockey players. My girls enjoy watching the game live with a bunch of friends, but none of them learned to play. My nephew, on the other hand, was probably handed a hockey stick and fitted for skates as soon as he could walk. My sister invited us to attend one of Riley’s hockey games the other night. I felt a little out of place, and noticed one or two people (high school classmates) looking at me as if they were wondering what the heck I was doing there. They probably thought I was there to take photos for the newspaper. The Farmer and I had thought ahead, bringing our fake-fur blanket to sit on in the stands. I remember going to hockey games with my Dad as a kid, freezing my bum to the seat. No real need for blankets here though – the stands in our new municipal centre arena are positively cozy, with heaters directed at the spectators. As Riley’s team skated onto the ice, I couldn’t believe how big he was. I see him

Aly Thibert and Mickayla Petersen are do in order to fill out their hockey jersey.

But that doesn’t stop them from contributing to the play. They just have to move those legs a little faster. I am not familiar with the rules of the game, nor can I follow it closely on the ice, so I won’t be giving a play-by-play of the action. Suffice it to say, we were all on the edge of our seats, from the puck drop through to the game-ending buzzer. Spurred on by the cheers of his proud parents in the crowd (I don’t know whether the players can hear their names from the ice but I’m sure that energy travels), Ryan Hess glided up and scored the winning goal in the last few minutes. Don’t ask me to remember the score. Like I said, I’m no sports commentator. Just a new fan of a game that reminds me so much of my Dad. I could hear him yelling his low, gravelly encouragement to the players, and one in particular: “Atta boy, Riley!” Congratulations, all of you, and enjoy your March Break. I’ll be in the stands for the play offs!

Theatre group delivers ‘Cash’ for Haynes family jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Kanata Theatre members are giving up their one night off during a show run in late March to host a fundraiser for a four-year-old boy. Connor Haynes is physically dependant on his family. He has no control of his muscles, can’t hold his head up or sit up. He can’t speak and his family is unsure how much he can see. Although Connor has been through a gamut of testing at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, results have been inconclusive. “He smiles a lot,â€? said his grandmother Jenefer Haynes, who is president of the Kanata Theatre. “He never complains. He’s got this lovely personality.â€? As Connor gets older, his parents need help accommodating his needs, said Haynes, who lives in West Carleton. Growing at the rate of other children his age, his parents are ďŹ nding it difďŹ cult to carry him up and down stairs. This is where the theatre comes in. ONE NIGHT ONLY

451984-11-11

Everyone involved in the production of Cash on Delivery has given up their one night off to volunteer their time for a special performance, with all the proceeds going to Connor’s trust fund. The money raised will help the young boy’s parents buy a new wheelchair accessible van and build an addition on to their home so Connor’s rooms – bedroom, bathroom and others – can be located on the main oor. “The whole idea of the fundraiser is to build Connor the rooms he needs on the ground oor,â€? said Haynes, who’s been involved with the Kanata Theatre for 35 years.

“(His parents) are very humble, they like to be private and look after their own affairs. They ďŹ nally relented (about getting outside help).â€? When she pitched the idea to Connor’s parents, “They were just thrilled,â€? CONNOR HAYNES said Haynes. “We want it to be a really fun night. It’s great to hear people laugh.â€? She said the cast and crew have been extremely generous in giving up their time. “Without the blink of an eye, everybody is on board. It’s astounding how generous people are being.â€? There is monetary assistance to outďŹ t a bathroom for Connor and put a lift in the van, but there is no help for the actual extension or van itself, said Haynes. Haynes has already sold a number of tickets and has received donations from people in the community to put in Connor’s trust. “It’s amazing the kindness and generosity,â€? she said.

Connor has been invited to a rehearsal of the play to meet the cast and crew since he’ll likely be unable to attend the performance, said Haynes. Connor, his ďŹ ve-month-old sister Gracie Mae and parents, Ed and Jane, live on a small farm in Lanark. The family moved out there because Connor “loves to be outside,â€? said Haynes. He takes part in therapeutic horseback riding in Perth, where he is laid across the horse’s back in order to massage his muscles. “He’s able to hold his head up a little bit now,â€? said Haynes. Connor also attends classes three days a week at Maple Grove Public School in Lanark, when he’s not ill. “He has a lot of friends, especially a little girl who loves to hold his hand,â€? said Haynes. “He loves it when the children sing.â€? ‘A SPECIAL NIGHT’ The special performance of Cash on Delivery will take place on Monday, March 28, at the Kanata Theatre, 1 Ron Maslin Way. Tickets are $25 and include a champagne intermission, and parking is free. The comedic play is intended for adults, and attendees should be over the age of 14, said Haynes. Tickets will not be processed through the Kanata Theatre box ofďŹ ce since the

night is being run on volunteered time. To purchase tickets, people can mail a cheque to Haynes: Jenefer Haynes, 201 Thomas A. Dolan Parkway, Dunrobin, ON K0A 1T0. For more information, people can call 613-832-3023. Haynes requested that if people want to donate to the cause but are unavailable for the night of the performance to refrain from purchasing tickets. Instead, they can donate to Connor’s trust fund, which is set up at the Royal Bank of Canada in Stittsville, 1615 Stittsville Main St. There are no cash receipts since Connor is not a registered charity. The young boy’s maternal grandmother, Sarah DeMarco, said the family appreciates all the help and support they’ve been receiving. “Connor has opened doors we would never have walked through otherwise,â€? wrote DeMarco, who lives in Richmond, in an email. “It is not a life that grandparents would choose for their grandchild but as we share our lives with Connor, it’s conďŹ rmed as Connor keeps growing, we have to put ourselves ‘out there’ and appeal to your sense of humanity as a parent, a grandparent, a brother, sister or all of the above, to open your doors for an evening in Connor’s name.â€? “I truly believe everyone will have a wonderful time,â€? said Haynes. “It will be a special night for the people that come.â€? 453570

An interactive topographical map lets landowners see how their property fits into the larger natural landscape. For more detailed information on specific questions, Nature In Deed provides annotated links to tips from various sources across the province and, most importantly, it provides contact information for local people who can give advice and assistance, such as the local stewardship council, municipal office, or conservation authority. “This website is for long-established country dwellers as well as new landowners,” von Rosen said. “It has province-wide relevance and will appeal to a woodlot owner from the Nipissing District just as much

Rural landowners now have a place to turn for comprehensive information about rural living and land management. The Lanark County Stewardship Council, with input from former Environmental Education of Ontario chair Elise Houghton, partnered with several non-government organizations and the Ministry of Natural Resources to develop a web portal linking rural landowners to practical information. Nature In Deed www.natureindeed. com was recently launched. “Back in 2007, a small group of folks in eastern Ontario began to meet to discuss how they might respond to what researchers have identified as a new movement in rural Ontario called ‘rural rebound,’” explained Franziska von Rosen, Lanark County Stewardship Council chair. “Aging urban baby boomers are

as a hobby farmer from the Niagara fruit belt. Resources and information are provided for a variety of natural landscape features, whether it’s forest, wetlands, farm fields or lakefront.” Stewardship Coordinator Jeff Ward says when the steering committee first met they had no idea the project would grow to this magnitude. “At the beginning we were dealing with a notable increase in landowner queries about fishers in eastern Ontario and we were thinking about developing a video to help dispel some of the myths about them. “We soon realized that we needed a better way to get all kinds of information into the hands of rural landowners. Nature in Deed is now a one-stop information portal for country dwellers.”

This year, the city will hire 295 net new positions: 45 firefighters, 24 paramedics and 75 bus drivers who will help the city save money be reducing the amount of overtime drivers work. “It’s mostly people on the front line providing services because our city is growing,” Watson said. Watson checked the budget off his list of accomplishments in his first 100 days in office, but transit issues will likely occupy the next 100 days. Contract talks with the city’s bus-driver union are set to begin soon. On top of that, the city’s transit commission will hear ideas to make the bus system more efficient, including route cutbacks, as well as a new business plan for OC Transpo. “For far too many years, the system has been micromanaged and cobbled together to the point

where it is no longer financially sustainable,” Watson said. The debate could prove to be the most divisive yet for this congenial council. “It’s going to be a challenging debate because it becomes very personal,” Watson said, with councillors defending individual routes in their wards that will affect their residents. Transit is also on the mayor’s mind when it comes to the city’s planned $2.1-billion light rail system. Keeping the costs within the budget, which is estimated in 2009 dollars – won’t be easy. “I’ll be fully at ease when the tenders come in,” Watson said. “Until those figures come in, we can estimate as best we can, but the reality is it will be up to bidders to come up with a price. But Watson said he’s committed to seeing the project through. 456015

JON’S MEMORY Jon Brunette lost his life in a snowmobile accident on this date, March 17, exactly eight years ago. Since then his mom Val, above, and the family hold a tournament and sponsor promising young players like Evan Graham, left, and Colby Cochrane. Jon played his minor hockey in the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association system during the 1990s and with the Ottawa Valley Titans from 1998 to 1999. He then played three years with the Arnprior Packers team. The photo on the right shows Timbits from the West Carleton Warrior scoring a goal against Ottawa East Zebras.

Walk The Bay to aid research on women’s cancers Come walk the bay with three local ladies participating in the Weekend to End Women’s Cancer. The team “The Rack Pack” needs to raise $6,000 just to even walk in the event they have committed to; so they need your support. The walk starts at the

Constance Bay community center and is about 8 km long, ending up back at the community center. You can walk with them part way or the whole route. Rollerblade, bike, walk the kids, the dogs you name it. Walk slow, walk fast doesn’t matter. Participation is what

will make this walk a success and help raise money for a great cause. Donations strongly encouraged. Walk is Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Any questions feel free to call Shawna at (613) 8322479. See you there and wear your pink.

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

Avalanche warning for Thunder Bay All Saints curling team wins city championship, prepares for provincials BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

The All Saints Avalanche won their third-straight city high school boy’s curling championship last week at the Nepean Sportsplex. The Avalanche cruised through the tournament, winning 13-1 in the semifinals and 9-4 over the John Mcrae Bulldogs on March 1. But any celebration over the win was definitely low-key as the team has its eyes set on a bigger prize: the provincial championship. The Avalanche, who won the Ontario Federation of Secondary Schools Athletic Association boys’ curling championship in 2010, will defend their title at the provincial finals in Thunder Bay, Ont. on March 23-26. They hope to become the second team in OFSSA history to win a back-to-back high school provincial curling championships since Don Mills Collegiate Institute did it in 1994 and 1995. “I’m excited personally; especially since the provincials are far away in Thunder Bay,” said skip Alex Cormier. “We’ve been to the provincials before but it should be strong competition.” The team went 7-1 in regular season play this year, good enough for

second place in their conference. The Avalanche is missing two members of last year’s championship team: Brett Lyon-Hatcher and Sean Cormier, who both graduated in June, 2010. But their younger brothers have stepped in to pick up the slack, with Alex moving from second to skip, Cole LyonHatcher moving to first and his younger brother Tyler (second) joining the team. The Lyon-Hatcher boys’ curling pedigree runs deep, with their grandfather, J.D. Lyon having played for teams Newfoundland and Manitoba. Another Lyon-Hatcher boy is waiting in the wings with Jordi, who plays on the All Saints little rocks team (for grade 7 and 8 students), eligible to play on next year’s varsity boy’s team. Rounding out this year’s team, Quinton Champion-Demers plays lead curler. The Avalanche has a strong team chemistry, said Trahan. “The boys like each other on and off the ice and that’s really important,” he said. The Avalanche also play together on competitive teams at the Huntley Curling Club. “Very seldom do you have four club members on a school team,” said Trahan. “If you have club members you have a chance to go pretty far.”

The All Saints Catholic High School boy’s curling team is preparing for the provincials after winning the city high school curling championship for the third time in a row. Above are Quinton ChampionDemers, coach Roger Trahan, Tyler LyonHatcher and, kneeling and holding last year’s provincial plaque, skip Alex Cormier. Photo by Blair Edwards

In Synch with Pink in West Carleton JOHN CARTER john.cartere@metroland.com

An In Synch with Pink Festival and cancer awareness event is being planned in West Carleton. Sarah Bowen of the Heart and Soul Cafe and Vera and Hank Jones are organizing the

special event, which will be held Saturday, April 2 at the West Carleton Legion in Constance Bay from noon to 4 p.m. Bowen said In Sync with Pink will throw the spotlight on all women’s cancers. There is a need to give some of the lesser-known cancers and organizations a higher profile,

she said. There will be shopping tables, a Savvy Seconds clothes swap, silent auction and plenty of opportunities for sharing information and networking, she added Admission is free to In Synch and there is plenty of parking. Bowen is looking for silent auction donations and volun-

teers to help with the event that day. It would be a chance for students to gain needed volunteer hours, she noted. In Synch with Pink is a firsttime event, but if it’s successful, it will become an annual happening, she said. For more information, check out the website www. treenuts.ca/pink.

Please be advised that on the March 11 flyer, page 20, the new Nikon L120 14.1 Megapixel Digital Cameras (WebCode: 10164976/ 80) are advertised with an incorrect price. The right price for this effective week should be $279.99. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers. 455275

X-ray foundation to approach businesses The community campaign to raise funds for the new X-ray equipment is well under way. Members of the West Carleton Health Access Foundation (WCHAF) said that anyone who received an email or a letter to please consider donating generously. New X-ray equipment means more efficient, effective service for those in the western community, including Stittsville, Carp, Constance Bay, Kinburn, Kanata and even as far south as Richmond.

It’s an easy drive to the location at the West Carleton Family Medical building in Carp. The business community will be approached as well. Already several have indicated their willingness to participate in a significant way. The WCHAF looks forward to working with them to achieve the goal. Please address donations to: West Carleton Health Access Foundation at P.O.Box 176, Carp, Ontario. A receipt for tax purposes will be sent out prior to year end.
