Budget for election O’Connor, McCrimmon conďŹ dent in meeting voters’ expectations if writ falls DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

A tumultuous week in federal politics culminates tomorrow (Friday) when opposition parties are expected to table a non-conďŹ dence vote against Stephen Harper’s Conservative government. Meanwhile, yesterday, leading Carleton-Mississippi Mills candidates – Conservative MP Gordon O’Connor and Liberal challenger Karen McCrimmon – were busy blaming the other party for an election most Canadians polled say they don’t want. “They decided a long time ago they wanted an election and were looking for an excuse,â€? O’Connor said. “They’ve been looking for a reason to force an election.â€? McCrimmon said the Conservatives

could have easily complied with NDP demands to add items to the budget. Had the Conservatives agreed to eliminate the federal sales tax on home-heating fuel; take measures to signiďŹ cantly increase the number of rural doctors; add a hefty boost to pensions for poor seniors; and restore the home eco-energy retroďŹ t program: an election call would unlikely. “Harper wants an election,â€? McCrimmon said. “It would have been easy to satisfy what the NDP wanted. It’s not a hard sell to Canadians.â€? However, the Liberals didn’t offer a list for the Conservatives to accept or reject, ensuring from their perspective the $300-million election – about the same amount as the NDP were asking for lowincome seniors – goes ahead.

BeneďŹ t dance in West Carleton for Evelyn Reid a huge success Neighbours rally for elderly victim of house ďŹ re KRISTA JOHNSTON It’s amazing how easily life can turn on a dime. How in one moment, you can be going about your regular day and in the next, ďŹ nd yourself running for your life. On Feb. 2, Evelyn Reid ed to her neighbour’s house with only the shirt on her back to call 911 after her home caught ďŹ re in the early evening hours. The fast-moving blaze quickly engulfed Reid’s home at 1492 Donald B. Munro Dr. just west of Carp and kept

46 volunteer ďŹ reďŹ ghters on scene until the ďŹ re was completely extinguished by 11 p.m. Although the ďŹ re was brought under control in less than two hours, Reid’s home was destroyed with damage estimated at $400,000. “I think she lost everything,â€? says George Wilson, who helped to co-organize a beneďŹ t dance for Reid last Friday night at the Carp Agricultural Hall. “The house ďŹ lled with smoke so quickly she couldn’t even get back in to get her keys and lost her car too.â€? Together with the help of Norma Baird and numerous community members who donated their time and talents, the beneďŹ t dance for Evelyn Reid turned out to be a huge success. Not only did more than 250 people come

out to support the fundraiser, but many others came out of the woodworks to make the event happen. “It was a wonderful evening and it was a real team effort,� says Baird. “The silent auction people brought in numerous items, the Indian River (Boys) played for the night and some businesses even called to ask if they could donate,� she adds. “The fair board donated the hall, the Parish of Huntley was a great support and there was a lot of food donated for the evening luncheon.� For the event, a model of Reid’s home was created as a donation box for the community to give what they could.

Controversial bus app gets top vote LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

A mobile phone application that thrusts users into an “augmented reality” of their city took home the top prize in the city’s Apps4Ottawa contest. Ekwa Jacob Duala-Ekoko won the best overall app for his Ottawa Guide: an android app that displays real-time digital information about the user’s current location on objects such as landmarks or attractions using a phone’s camera – a technology called “augmented reality”. Winners in the Apps4Ottawa contest were announced on Feb. 15. The contest challenged local developers to come up with mobile and computerbased applications, or “apps,” that use the city’s streams of data to help users navigate and enjoy resources the city has to offer. But the winner of the peoples’ choice award created a controversial app that can no longer be used because OC Transpo pulled a data stream. Where is my Bus, created by Jonathan Rudenberg, used OC Transpo’s GPS data to tell users – as the name suggests – where their bus is. The app quickly became popular, until OC Transpo abruptly made the GPS data unavailable, citing the data’s

questionable reliability at this time. Alain Mercier, general manager of OC Transpo, said the transit authority would be keeping the data under wraps until it could ensure the accuracy of the information, even though it has already been released and conforms with the city’s open data policy. At a recent transit commission meeting, Mercier said the data also stands to bring in a lot of revenue for OC Transpo – about $1.1 million initially, which would grow over time, he said. “We’re looking for approximately a 75 per cent increase in other revenue sources tied with leveraging that kind of information,” Mercier said. Duala-Ekoko’s Ottawa Guide tied with Rudenberg’s bus

app for the peoples’ choice award. The Best Student app was awarded to Tyler Pearce for his OttawaFun.ca app, which allows people to use their computers to discover points of interest throughout Ottawa. Over 90 applications were entered into the contest in five categories: Having Fun in Ottawa; Getting Around; Green Environment/Sustainability; Community Building; and, Economic Development. The top prize in each category was $5,000. The city needs to celebrate the kind of innovation that the Apps4Ottawa contest led to, said Guy Michaud, director of information technology services and chief information officer for the city.

Dance helps with plan to rebuild Continued from front Although organizers are not sure of the exact amount collected, they know every dollar will help at this time. Wilson stressed that it was truly a night of giving, with even the 50/50 draw winner donating back about $800 to Reid. “The fire was just so devastating. She got out with only the sweater on her back,” says Baird. “She lost photos, her purse, her keys, and the car. Everything. She was just so thankful to the community.” Baird, who says that Reid is now living with her daughter in the Almonte area, plans to rebuild on the same lot. She stressed that proceeds from the benefit dance will help Reid get through her day-today life until she is able to return home. “Evelyn is a fabulous, giving person,” says Baird. “This will help her with necessities until the insurance kicks in.” Donations for Reid are still being accepted at the Royal Bank in Kinburn or Scotia Bank in Carp.

high-ranking Conservatives facing charges under the Elections Act, is the latest in a long line of questionable moves by the Harper government. O’Connor brushes aside the contro-

tel, RCMP and the Canadian Forces. The Conservatives also took money away from Agriculture Canada and Environment Canada, she added. “I’ve been knocking on doors since November and I can tell you no one cares about spending money on fighter jets, prisons and corporate tax cuts,” McCrimmon said. “They care about jobs, health care and pensions.” The election is widely expected to take place on Monday, May 2.

Friendly giants find homes through rescue Kim Knapp began a dog rescue organization in 2009 after friends told her about the number of large dogs being put down due to a lack of space and resources. “Basically we rescue, we rehabilitate and adopt out dogs that are sitting in high-kill shelters,” she said. “I started to see the growing need as people are discarding animals. We’re trying to educate people about proper ownership, spaying and neutering. People who think there’s no alternative to behavioral issues except to dump them in a shelter.” Small dogs are adopted more quickly, said Knapp. So she created the Friendly Giants Dog Rescue to help find foster and adoptive homes for large and giant-breed dogs. “Large and giants are usually the first on the euthanasia list,” said Knapp, who’s been involved with rescue groups for 20 years. “They sometimes only have 72 hours to get out of the shelter before they’re put to death.” The rescue is based out of Ottawa and Sarnia, Ont., but there is no physical shelter. Instead, Knapp relies on foster families to house the rescue dogs until they’re adopted. Katimavik resident Brenda Doughty has been fostering an American bulldog-mastiff mix and is in the process of adopting the one-year-old pooch after finding the dog’s listing on kijiji.ca. “Because of his medical condition they wanted to have me foster him until we were aware of how much medical attention he would need,” said Doughty, who took up fundraising initiatives for the rescue after becoming a foster home. The rescue pays for all the medical expenses for rescued dogs until they’re formally adopted, the funds coming from Knapp’s pocket. “Everything is funded out of pocket but the adoption fees generally cover what is spent on the dog,” said Knapp, who has seen numerous medical cases – including heartworm infestations and a dog that needed its leg amputated. The not-for-profit rescue takes in dogs from Canada and the United States, which has a larger number of high-kill shelters. “They have more gassing pounds than we do,” said Doughty. “Dogs, when they’re brought in either as strays

PC meeting changes location

or owner surrenders to certain shelters, they have a policy on how long they can keep them depending on how busy they are. Friendly Giants Dog Rescue goes in and rescues the dog before it’s euthanized.” The rescue and foster homes assess each dog for temperament and behavior – if the dog is good around children, if it’s skittish or if it likes a lot of attention – and then each dog is given a profile on the rescue’s website, kijiji.ca and usedottawa.com. Sometimes, as in Doughty’s case, the foster family becomes the adoptive family. It can take months to find dogs a home and in that time period the family becomes attached and can’t bear to part with the animal, she said. The rescue has about 30 dogs available for adoption between the Ottawa and Sarnia branch. In 2009, 35 dogs found homes. Last year, that number rose to 140. “This year we’ve already adopted out 40 to 50 dogs and we’re only in February,” said Knapp, who just held a meet and greet-type fundraiser at Dogs at Camp, which is located 20 minutes west of Kanata. Families were able to come out and meet dogs up for adoption. “(We) thought it would be a great idea to hold an event where people could come meet all the dogs in one place,” said Knapp. Five dogs found homes through the event, said Doughty, and some applications are still pending. Knapp added that the rescue is in need of foster homes in the Ottawa area. “There’s a never ending supply of dogs but finding good committed foster homes is a big deal,” she said. “We’re really desperate for foster homes.” Friendly Giants will be at the Rideau Carleton Raceway on the first Sunday of every month for its flea market. “We’re going to have a little booth to talk to people if they have questions,” said Doughty, who added they’ll be selling things like t-shirts and have profiles of dogs waiting to be adopted. The rescue is also putting on a dinner and dance to help raise funds on June 25. Ticket prices and information for the event will be posted on the website in the near future, said Doughty.

O’Connor called this week’s budget “a darn good one” he is willing to run an election on. He said the country is slowly emerging from “The Great Recession” better than other G-8 nations. More jobs (480,000) were created than lost. And the debt is going down by 25 per cent per year, with a surplus pegged for 2015-2016, he says. But elections aren’t fought on the economy alone. Tomorrow is expected to see the opposition parties cast the Harper government – which came in five years ago on a transparency and accountability mandate – as corrupt and antidemocratic. The so-called ‘In and out’ advertizing scandal, which has four

versies and unimportant to Canadians outside Parliament Hill. “After a few days the issues that are important to Canadians will come through,” he said. “Jobs, the economy, that’s what they care about.” McCrimmon said her opponent isn’t safe on those issues either. She reminds local voters that more than 29,000 high-paying tech jobs have left Ottawa since 2007. “And yet the government has done nothing,” she said. “Their answer is to give tax cuts to the top five per cent of corporations: the banks, big oil and media and telecom giants. That won’t do anything for small- and mediumsized businesses.” She said O’Connor voted against protecting pensions belonging to Nor-

‘Time to talk about your village’ Dunrobin Veterinary Clinic

First of three West Carleton rural review meetings in Constance Bay Saturday

A series of City of Ottawa village plan update meetings includes three in West Carleton, including the first one this Saturday, March 26 in Constance Bay. The sessions will give rural residents a chance to provide input on updates to the policies of each village development plan. The city is committed to reviewing all village plans that are five years or older in preparation for the next official plan update in 2014. The series starts in Sarsfield Friday evening, with the meeting for Constance Bay area residents scheduled for this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre at 262 Len Purcell Dr. The public is encouraged to attend and the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association will be making a submission.

es; • Rural environment – greenspace, water protection and natural systems; • Rural character – how the Village should look and feel. City staff want to hear what residents think about developing country lot subdivisions in the rural area. For instance, should they be clustered? Residents are also encouraged to read the city’s discussion paper titled ‘Rural Land Use – The Impact of Clustering Country Lot Subdivisions’ and answer the questionnaire any time before May 17. The results will help in the creation of recommendations to council. To find out more, look up your village on the city’s website at ottawa. ca/ruralreview. It contains all kinds of information about villages’ population, housing and general demographics. People can also send feedback, either online or by e-mail at plan@ottawa.ca.

dents is set for Saturday, April 2 from 9 a.m. to noon at the West Carleton Community Complex, 5670 Carp Rd. The final West Carleton session, for Carp area residents, will be held Tuesday, April 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Carp Fairgrounds. The official plan designates 26 villages in the Ottawa area and all will be covered in the series of 14 rural review meetings. Each village’s land use and growth is guided by either a secondary plan or a community design plan. At the meetings, rural residents will hear more about the projects in their areas and be able to question city staff, particularly planners Emily Davies and Robin van de Lande, about what they mean for rural villages. All workshops will include a presentation about the Official Plan Rural Land Use Review by city staff, small group discussions and a question-andanswer period. Participants will talk about: • Land use – what kinds of uses are allowed; • Servicing and infrastructure – sewers, pipes and transportation challeng-

Purchase a piece of Ottawa City’s new advertising policy includes naming rights for buildings

Chartwell K anata Retirement Residence

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Want to leave your mark on the City of Ottawa? Under a new plan, you could name a city building, room or structure – for a price. Selling naming rights to cityowned facilities is just one of the ideas in a new five-year marketing plan that is expected to generate up to $12.7 million in additional revenue for the city over the next five years. The city currently receives about $5.5 million in sponsorships and in-kind donations each

seem like a conservative estimate. Mayor Jim Watson assured members of the city’s finance and economic development committee that the projections were achievable. “We’re going to under-promise and overdeliver,” he said. Clark was the only committee member to vote against the new advertising policy during the March 1 meeting. Some councillors, such as GloucesterSouthgate’s Diane Deans and KnoxdaleMerivale’s Keith Egli, wanted to ensure that city buildings that have already received commemorative names will not be renamed. “I want to make sure there are safeguards in place,” Egli said. City staff assured councillors buildings that have already been named using the city’s commemorative naming policy would not change. In those cases, there may be opportunities to purchase the naming rights to internal portions of the building, such as a pool or a

room. While much of the focus was on naming city buildings, the city’s main source of advertising revenue is the $2.7 million it gets from bus advertising each year. Even though buses are where the city makes most of its advertising money, there are often empty ad spaces on OC Transpo vehicles, Watson said. The mayor said he would also like to look at using those empty spaces for city ads, such as public health education, if they remain unsold. Details on how the city could make more money from transit advertising haven’t been decided, but a report states that it will include ads for the web and mobile devices such as cell phones. The report projects the city could make an additional $2.6 million over the next five years. Billboards on city property also bring in some money. The city started offering 19 billboards in 2006 and they make $226,000 in revenue from them each year.

Maria McRae expressed concern that the plan wouldn’t make as much money as city staff hope. “I don’t want to put out numbers that are too high and create unrealistic expectations,” she said.

Taxpayers Federation wants debt elimination to become an election issue DESMOND DEVOY, JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Cut spending, balance the budget and stop the clock. That’s the message Derek Fildenbrandt brought to the Ottawa Valley last week. Photo by John Carter

sector spending that helped the country survive the economic downturn, he said. The economy had recovered before most of the stimulus spending even started, he said. “There is zero evidence that even one job was created.” While the timing of the next election is still up in the air, Fildenbrandt does wants deficit reduction and elimination to be a major election issue. One of the ways the government can balance the books is by getting rid of wasteful spending, and doing some big rearranging, like phasing out equalization payments to the provinces.

“Equalization encourages provinces to engage in economically destructive policies,” he said. He also called for the end to business subsidies or “corporate welfare,” no more bailouts, reining in health and social transfers to the provinces, and changing the face of public health care. “We need to still have a public health care system,” he hastened to add. “But the private sector needs to be allowed to step in for financing and delivery.”

Should the city allow rooftop signs? LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Drive around Ottawa, and you’ll see things such as a cow or an ATV on business roofs. They weren’t deposited there by a tornado – but some people are still wondering how they got there, because they are not allowed. But the bylaw that governs what is allowed to adorn the city’s rooftops might be changing. The city is asking for residents’ input on whether it should allow signs on Ottawa rooftops – something that has long been requested by local businesses. That’s because they are visible from all angles and grab more attention. And according to a city report, it could also help beautify the city by adding colour to drab buildings. But on the other hand, the report says rooftop signs could clutter the city’s skyline, particularly the “gateways” into the city along major highways. That would provide more ammunition for those who say the city doesn’t support its own design guidelines.

If illuminated signs were allowed, they could spill light into neighbouring residential communities. The options being considered are: • Continuing to prohibit rooftop signs •Temporarily permit rooftop signs for new businesses only • Allow rooftop signs in commercial areas with restrictions on the size, location, illumination and setbacks • Other options as they are suggested Rooftop signs were prohibited in the former city of Ottawa and the other amalgamated municipalities. Vanier is the only former municipality that did allow rooftop signs, but they were banned just before amalgamation in 2001. The consultation stemmed from city council’s direction last March to have staff investigate options. After the consultation period, the city’s planning committee will receive a report on the recommendations in late May or June. Information and a questionnaire are available online at ottawa.ca/rooftopsigns or call 311 to request an information package in the mail.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has brought its old National Debt Clock out of mothballs for a repeat national tour, to remind Canadians of how much each citizen owes. The clock visited the Ottawa Valley last Friday, with stops at town halls in Arnprior, Carleton Place and Renfrew. “It’s a message of fiscal restraint: an appeal to the politicians,” said Derek Fildenbrandt, the federation’s national research director. “Cut spending, balance the budget and stop the clock.” During its brief stop in Arnprior, the fast-ticking clock showed the federal debt to be closing in on $563 billion with each Canadian “owing” $16,590. The debt is increasing at a rate of about $124 million a day or $1,400 a second. Fildenbrandt said that as the clock tour travels through both urban and rural areas, the response from the public has ranged from “bewilderment to rage.” Some get very angry and wonder how politicians can get away with squandering “our money,” he added. “It’s not the legacy people want handed down to future generations.” The debt clock tour left Victoria on Feb. 22 and will wrap up in Halifax early next month. But it won’t be mothballed again for some time. “We’re not going to stop until the budget is balanced,” said Fildenbrandt. He noted the debt clock toured Canada from 1993 to 1997, until the deficit was

eliminated by the Chretien-Martin Liberals. “It played a big part in getting Canadians onside,” with deficit elimination, he maintained. However, the deficit has returned in a big way, causing Fildenbrandt to admit he is disappointed with Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who used to espouse fiscal conservatism. “At some point, Harper stood for a lot of the values that the Taxpayers Federation held,” he said. However, it appears the culture of bureaucratic Ottawa has changed his outlook, he said. “Ottawa does that to you,” he said. “But it’s not just Stephen Harper. All parties in Parliament are responsible for this.” Out-of-control federal spending actually started during the Pierre Elliott Trudeau years, he said. The Ignatieff Liberals were also not spared Fildenbrandt’s wrath, with their recent announcement that if they were to form the next government they would support the building of a new ice hockey arena in Quebec City with federal tax money. “They’re not credible,” Fildenbrandt said. He said the Ontario Liberal government is spending so much the province is in danger of going bankrupt. While the Harper government has stated it has a five-year plan to balance the books by 2015, Fildenbrandt holds little faith in its resolve to do so. “Five years is beyond the comprehension of God himself,” he said. “A lot can change,” he said, pointing to Harper’s reversal of opinion on deficits from October to November 2008, from being firmly opposed to them, to embracing them, within the space of 30 days. While the change was prompted by a general consensus of all parties that stimulus spending was needed to pull the country out of the recession, Fildenbrandt isn’t buying it. It was private

To Guatemala and beyond Karen Secord returns from humanitarian mission with plenty of stories to tell SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Karen Secord has an incredible story to tell. The 51-year-old writer and marketing manager for Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre has just returned from a month-long volunteer mission to Guatemala. That in itself is an impressive accomplishment but add to that the fact Secord did it all after a whirlwind year that included gastric bypass surgery and the loss of 110 pounds and it’s no wonder Secord has lots to talk about. Working in conjunction with three different agencies including the Guatemala Stove Project, Secord spent a month in the country on a humanitarian mission that was the realization of a long-time dream – one that wasn’t feasible at her previous weight and physical condition. The West Carleton Review featured Secord’s story in our Jan. 27 edition when she was planning her trip and gathering donations. Finding internet access to post her travel blog proved one of the biggest challenges of the trip. Secord and her roommate were scolded a few times for their afterdark voyages. Despite the challenges, Secord Karen Secord speaks with one of the Guatemalan managed to post an extensive blog women who received a masonry stove in her home and photos chronicling a journey thanks to the Guatemala Stove Project. that was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. “We have so much compared to some people,” she says. She remains impressed with the agencies with which she worked while in Guatemala, including the Guatemala Stove Project, which provides masonry cookstoves to homes in communities in need. “It’s amazing what can be done with just a little bit of money,” says Secord. From the villagers who had never seen their own photo and even rarely glimpsed their own image to the children who proudly waved their gifts of Canada flags and snow flakes made by Guatemalan children are all smiles as they show off Canadian children, Secord has their new toothbrushes. amassed a wealth of memories

Among the goodies Karen Secord brought for the Guatemalan children were Canadian flags and snowflakes created by local youth. Above, the kids proudly wave their new-found treasures. Photos courtesy of Karen Secord

that she will continue to write about. Whether it was toothbrushes from Carp’s Work Ables program or locally donated school supplies, Secord says the Guatemalans were grateful for all the gifts she and the other volunteers offered. Another thing underscored during her time in Guatemala was the sense of family and togetherness. Everyone was friendly, she says. “They’re really family-oriented people,” says Secord. “Just because you don’t have money doesn’t mean you don’t love your family. So now she’s got this mission successfully under her belt, what’s up next for Secord? “I’d like to go to Africa,” says Secord, who adds that she’d love to have one or both of her sons, ages 21 and 23, accompany her. But for now, she’s working on projects stemming from her time in Guatemala and will share her story with local students and others. Read Karen’s story, in her own words, on her blog at www.guatemalaboundwithkaren.blogspot.com.

Talk about a culture clash. Western influences can be seen in Guatemala, as evidenced in this photo where one little girl wears a paper Burger King crown and another carries corn the traditional way atop her head.

I am just writing with regards to an incident that occurred this past Friday, March 18. This past Friday I was at home waiting for one of my best friends to pick me up. We were planning on driving to Peterborough to visit another one of our friends. Just after 4 p.m., the time my friend Kyla Helpin was supposed to pick me up, I received a frantic phone call from her. She declared while crying that she was OK, however a rock had hit her windshield; she was covered with glass and in shock. She was so distraught that she could not communicate to me where on Carp Road she was located, a stretch which she drives everyday. A witness had to tell me where they were. Thankfully she is OK. However, the rock hit the driver side windshield and all who have seen the car have declared she is lucky to be alive. According to witnesses the rock flew out of a passing dump truck; Kyla and the truck passed each other going opposite ways. The witness that I spoke to told me that she was not able to identify the truck and that she had to make a decision to run down the truck or turn around to make sure my friend was OK, she decided to attend to my friend. When we later asked the police officer if he would be able to do anything with regards to the truck, whose load was clearly not properly packed, he explained that he was going to talk to a company down the road to let them know of the situation, however

A large rock crashed through a Constance Bay driver’s window, covering her in glass. since the truck was not identified there is not really anything he could do. He also explained he would have to prove that there was malice on the driver’s part. Point being Carp Road is a very busy stretch and constantly has trucks driving up and down it. Just last year Jason Birch, a young father was killed on Carp Road due to a similar incident. I think there needs to be a conversation about load safety. My friend Kyla is thankfully OK. I think the only reason she is all right is because she had seen another rock fall off of the truck and had considerably slowed down to about 55 km in an 80-km zone. She thought at first that the rock had somehow jump up to her windshield, however a witness said she saw multiple rocks fall off the dump truck. Therefore, as Kyla was slowing down and preparing to drive over a smaller rock which had landed

Community support program helps seniors To the editor: Re: West Carleton Review Article March 10, City Urged to Improve Rural Para Transpo Fares. First of all, kudos to Adele Muldoon for continually working to ensure that the needs of seniors in West Carleton are understood and addressed! As a result of advocacy by Adele and other stakeholders, the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre’s (WOCRC) funders, the City of Ottawa and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, through the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, are recognizing the unique needs of seniors living in rural communities while working with partner agencies to find solutions that will benefit our rural senior population. The article notes that the WOCRC has provided transportation services to seniors in West Carleton for many years. As required by our funder, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, there is a fee for this service. This fee goes directly to compensate volunteer drivers for out-of-pocket expenses while providing transportation services.

It is important to keep in mind, the WOCRC is able to subsidize fees for clients who cannot afford to pay, and the approval process requires minimal information. We are able to provide this subsidy as a result of generous donations for this program from the western-Ottawa community. So, what can you do to help our seniors living in rural communities? 1. Spread the word in your community about the WOCRC’s Community Support Services program, and how we can provide a subsidy for our transportation service for those who need help; 2. Be a part of the solution by becoming a WOCRC volunteer driver; 3. Make a donation to the WOCRC Community Support Program. Our seniors are one of our most valuable assets in the community. By working together, we can ensure that seniors in West Carleton are given the support they so richly deserve so they may live safe, healthy lives in our community.

Sam is very silly, and is a fantastic dog with great personality. Sam is a four-year-old neutered male, Boxer/Husky mix. Sam was found wandering and was brought back to the shelter, he was never claimed. He is very easygoing and has a good temperament. He loves other dogs and gets along well with all that he meets. He is an active dog with lots of energy and enjoys going for walks. He’s very small and attentive, he knows his basic obedience commands but would benefit from more training. He is housebroken and crate-trained. Sam is good with cats and older children. Sam will make a great companion for his new family.

This very sweet girl would love to find a home. Sophie is a 10-month-old, spayed female German Shepherd mix. She has lots of energy and enjoys playing in the yard and going for walks. She is intelligent and eager to please, but will require some obedience training. Sophie is house broken and crate-trained. She enjoys the company of other dogs, she is great with cats and would be good with children over eight. Sophie is a wonderful dog and will make a great companion for her new family.

Supplies the shelter needs: glass cleaner, paper towels, liquid laundry soap and canned dog food. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 613-623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m Monday to Saturday or visit www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca

Fighting for what’s right in Libya

S

trength is best used when it protects the weak. That is why our planes have taken to the skies over Libya. If ever there was a just war, this is it. The irony of western powers launching firepower on a Middle Eastern country on the eighth anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was probably not lost on many people. But the differences between the two conflicts are like night and day. This time, the Arab League “respects” the United Nations mandate. Not only are they on side, but nations like Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are in support as well. Countries that took the U.S. and its allies to task for their Iraqi adventure, like France, Germany and Canada, are now not only on board, but are leading the charge. It is not lost on us that part of the reason we are taking action in Libya is because of that country’s oil wealth – with gas prices shooting up, we almost have to. Yes, the reasons why our six fighter jets and the HMCS Charlottetown are in the area are not entirely altruistic, and may even be partially selfish. But we can be certain that the rebels of Benghazi, facing certain annihilation just

a week ago, or torture or exile if they survived, are just glad that we have arrived at the party – a little late and out of breath, but we’re there, making it an even fight. We support our men and women in the air and on the seas in the support base in Italy. These actions are part of a coming day of reckoning for Col. Gaddafi, the alleged mastermind behind the Lockerbie bombing in 1988, and attacks on his own people. Your oil money, Swiss bank accounts and henchmen won’t save you now. We do agree with the opposition that this should not be an open-ended mission. Even though time was of the essence, if it is not over within three months, it does need to come back to the House of Commons for a proper debate. The Libyan know best how to decide the future of their country, one without Col. Gaddafi and his family. Hopefully, the action taken by Canada and her allies this week will hasten an end to this bloody civil war. Once the dust settles, and a new democratic government is set up, Canada will be there, as we always have been, ready to help with tools, sweat and advice on rebuilding.

Remember tailfins? Remember baseball? Nostalgia, as they always say, is not what it used to be. In fact, it is becoming bigger. We used to think of nostalgia as having to do with big cars with tail fins, the Cold War and dance bands on Saturday night. Now, as our society changes at a rapid clip, more and more things we used to think of as the latest thing are heading for nostalgia land. The printed book, perhaps. Maybe the daily newspaper, at least on paper. Look what is already there: television sets that are too heavy to carry, VCRs, CDs and — suddenly — video stores. Remember the chain video store on the corner? Look again. Your grandchildren won’t remember them. And here’s a question: will they have any memory of baseball? Various events bring this thought on. The days are suddenly long and with that comes an urge to play outside after supper. Mind you, this being Ottawa, playing outside would mean playing in the slush, but still, it could be baseball any day now. At a gathering of a particularly intense group of fans the other night, an audio tape of an old baseball game was playing.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Remember audio tape? It was a Montreal Expos game played in the early autumn of 1986, the last game with Duke Snider in the broadcast booth. Snider, a great outfielder and a great broadcaster, died late last month. You don’t have to be ridiculously old to remember when the voices of Snider and Dave Van Horne, calling the Expos games on Ottawa’s country music station, were the sound of summer. Snider went away in 1986. The Expos went away in the season of 2005. Only country music radion seems to have thrived. You can’t say the same for baseball, especially in this country. The Expos are gone. The Blue Jays have not been drawing anything like the crowds they did in the last millennium. What used to be known as the Lynx

Stadium has no Lynx in it. Baseball there fights for survival while the parking lot shrinks. In our neighbourhood, the park across the street, which used to be busy with Little League ball every night, now has soccer (and an terrifying array of minivans parked beside it). It is true that huge salaries are still made by baseball players south of the border and huge profits are made by owners and broadcasters and the people who resell tickets on the Internet. But the ordinary person has lost the ability to identify with millionaires and billionaires, particularly when the behaviour of many of them has been less than exemplary. Their pictures are not taped onto kids’ bedroom walls. Worse than the lack of adulation is the lack of emulation. Kids still want to be Sidney Crosby. Do they want to be Roy Halliday? The game won’t survive if people don’t play it. Even in the U.S., there are signs that young athletes are turning to basketball or football, rather than baseball. Here it is hockey, of course, and, increasingly, soccer, and, even more increasingly, stuff kids play while sitting in front of a computer screen. It is not fun to consider baseball as

something we used to do, like square dancing or renting videos. The game, while considered too slow by some and not violent enough by others, has many qualities that other games lack. Unlike hockey, it has no clutch-and-grab, no headshots. Unlike football, coaches do not send in the plays. Oddly, athletes and fans in other countries are finding this out, while baseball edges into nostalgia in North America. In Asia and Latin America, particularly, baseball is hot. Here, we miss the Expos and we miss what used to be the enthusiasm for the Blue Jays. We miss seeing kids in the park across the way learning how to field ground balls. The nostalgia grows as the days get longer.

JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Former federal Liberal nominee Scott Simser has been selected as the Green Party of Ontario provincial candidate for Carleton-Mississippi Mills. He was the only one to put his name forward with the Green Party. Simser, who ran for the Liberal Party nomination in 2007 and 2009, said the Green Party was a better fit for his ideals. “My thinking evolved,” said the 45year-old. “The Green Party is new and has exciting ideas; I’ve always had a passion for the environment.” He said he thinks it’s important to get a number of Green Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP) in at Queen’s Park. “Queen’s Park needs a shake-up,” he said. “It needs the Green Party to be there. In some way the people have not been satisfied with these governments in the past (the Conservatives, Liberals and NPD) so they should give the Green Party a chance.” Simser, who grew up in Kanata north, living there for 19 years before moving to Toronto, now resides in Katimavik with his wife and three children. He holds a bachelor of administration from the

hold more power and have more of a say in how their government is run. “A centralized government can’t effectively control everything. So why not decentralize it and let the people make the decisions. You can do more with less, with a smaller government.” The Earl of March Secondary School graduate said there is too much red tape for small businesses, adding there are too many agencies within the provincial government that are redundant or ineffective. He said the Ontario Municipal Board should be drastically reduced or eliminated all together. “Governments need to be more transparent and accountable,” he said, adding ministers should be more open and forthcoming with their expenses. “Why can’t you just post it to a website? Prove you’ve got nothing to hide.”

University of Ottawa, a MBA from the University of Toronto and is currently taking three courses at the University of Ottawa. Simser, who was born with a hearing impairment, said his main priorities are the environment, SCOTT SIMSER the economy and a more decentralized government. SMALLER GOVERNMENT “We think the government in Queen’s Park is too centralized,” said Simser, who works as a tax analyst with the Government of Canada. “I’d like to see a smaller government, more decentralized – more responsive to the local community. We think the communities know best.” He said he wants to see communities

PROTECT THE LAND Sensitive and environmentally-significant lands should be looked at before they’re bought by developers, said Simser. “We’d look at sensitive lands within the city boundaries and see what their statuses are (then) buy them now before

the developers get them.” Growing up with the Beaver Pond in his backyard, Simser said what happened there is sad. “I’m very sad to see it go. What we’ve decided as the executive is we have to look forward to the future.” He said he would look into the Nature Conservatory of Canada, of which he donates to, to buy environmentally sensitive lands. “They buy land; they get by on the donations people give them.” Simser said the party doesn’t agree with landfills and thinks the Carp dump was a bad choice. “We look to Europe,” said Simser, who added product packaging across the ocean is more environmentally friendly. “They have very ambitious recycling programs. It’s very different there then the way we do it here.” He said the government is taking part in too many expensive programs. “You want the communities and municipalities to be responsible for conservation,” said Simser. “It’s up to us to conserve.” The provincial election will take place Oct. 6. “I’m looking forward to it,” said Simser. “It’ll be out of sight.”

Time of year when potholes start popping up across the city “Ker-chunk!” It’s a sound that Ottawa drivers loathe. While warm temperatures are something to look forward to in the spring, they also bring the arrival of potholes – the tire rims’ nemesis. It is well known that “freeze-andthaw cycles” lead to potholes, but what does that actually mean? Potholes are more likely to happen when it’s warm, said Jason Staniforth, who oversees the crews that repair the city’s potholes. But cold temperatures are also needed to create the perfect conditions for a pothole. The process of creating a pothole starts when water begins to creep under the pavement. Heavy rainfall (or any precipitation) kicks off the process. As temperatures heat up and the sun beats down on the pavement, melting snow and ice can make roads even more water-logged. The cycle continues from there, Staniforth said. “When it freezes overnight, it pushes the asphalt up,” he said. “When it melts again, it pushes the asphalt back up and vehicular traffic tends to break it up, creating a pothole.” Potholes can be created when water builds up between layers of asphalt, or between the asphalt and the ground itself. It’s hard to tell whether there are more potholes than last year, but heavier rain so far in 2011 is likely put-

Follow these tips to help reduce the wear and tear on your car due to potholes: * Pay attention to tire pressure – it will help protect your vehicle’s wheels and tires from being damaged from pothole impacts. * Don’t swerve to avoid potholes. Swerving can cause the front wheel and tire on the car to hit the edge of the pothole at an angle, which might do more damage than hitting it straight on. * Don’t brake just because you see a pothole: heavy braking compresses the front suspension of the car and could force the tire and wheel down into the pothole, instead of gliding over. – Courtesy of Ford of Canada ting more strain on the city’s streets. “I can’t speak to whether there are more or less this year, but last year there was less precipitation,” Staniforth said. That meant crews had more opportunities to get out and patch up the roads last year. The work needs to be done when conditions are dry in order for the patch material to bond to the road, Staniforth said. However, if a pothole is bad enough city crews will still patch it up if the road is wet. Even if the patch isn’t permanent, it can prevent the pothole from becoming bigger. The city uses two methods to tackle potholes. Traditionally, roads were repaired

using a cold-patch method. Cold-patch they fill whatever they see.” asphalt doesn’t need to be heated beThat’s why the city doesn’t track the actual numfore it is shoveled into the pothole and ber of potholes each spring – it’s too difficult to pin stamped down. down. In the past couple of years, the city has also started using hot patch asphalt to repair potholes. The mix of liquid asphalt, sand and different sized gravel needs to be kept hot to flow, and FOR ARLY PRING ELIVERY hardens to a more durable surface as it cools. The city keeps the material warm with 14 hot boxes that crews tote around the city. “If the pothole is dry, it’s a more permanent fix than cold mix,” Staniforth said. Crews are out with the hot boxes “whenever possible” during pothole season, Staniforth said, which basically means anytime it isn’t raining or snowing. What makes a road more likely to become riddled with potholes? As the city’s roads reach the end of their lifecycles, they are more likely to crack under the pressure of weather changes, Staniforth said. So far this year, the city has reN RNPRIOR NDRÉ PILON ceived 929 calls from residents about potholes.

A face in window spooks Constance Bay resident CONST. PETER JEON Ottawa Police Service

Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 52 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of March 11 to 17. Imagine you are watching some late night TV when suddenly, out of the corner of your eye, you catch a glimpse of a face staring in at you from the dark. What sorts of thoughts come to life as you imagine this? A 911-caller from around Constance Bay called police at around 2 a.m. on Friday morning after he spotted a lone male standing in the pouring rain, peering in through his front window, as he watched some late night television. The male, described as 20-30 years of age, 6’3” tall, 210 pounds, scruffy facial hair, wore a dark brown or black coat. As the caller leapt from his chair and ran towards the front door the unidentified male turned and slowly walked down the driveway and melted into the darkness. With the safety and security sirens sounding in his head, the caller flew throughout his house locking all of the doors and windows. As the caller’s heartbeat and stress levels settled back down again, his mind began to open up to the cold hard realization that normally he would have been working the evening shift and that his wife and kids would have been left at home alone with the doors and windows unlocked. Hindsight is 20-20. So, learn from this experience and take some simple precautions to secure your home: lock your doors and windows at night, and make use of motion sensor lighting. THE POWER OF A COMMUNITY VOICE To a person skulking around in the dark, the sound of a loud and unexpected voice booming in the cold night air is enough to make him stop what he is doing and switch into a flight or fight mode; this is a natural response to a stressful situation. For one homeowner on Charlie’s Lane in Carp Village, when he spotted three teenagers skulking around his neighbours’ driveways and yelled out at them, he caused one male to jump inside of the vehicle he was rifling through and hide, while the others two froze in their tracks. At 4 a.m. on a Sunday morning, the last thing the teens were probably expecting to hear was a loud directed voice. When the homeowner challenged the first two males on their criminal activity, they said nothing and quietly walked away. As for the third teen, he quickly jumped out the car and scurried off down Charlie’s Lane to catch up with his so-called buddies. Please raise your voice in the community and get the word out that it is time to lock your doors and secure your valuables. With the warmer weather coming on, it is inevitable that the night crawlers will be out plying your streets. Break and Enter Mar. 12 3600 section of Torbolton Ridge Road, West Carleton: Sometime be-

tween 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday, an unidentified culprit broke into a residential garage and stole a 2007 silver Yamaha R66 ATV. The culprit forced his way into the secured garage through a locked rear door and removed the ATV through the front bay doors. No attempt was made to enter the residence itself. Mischief Mar. 16 West Carleton: Several rural mailboxes along Galetta Side Road, Ferry Road, Kinburn Side Road, Woodkilton Road and Bayview Drive were destroyed by unidentified culprits sometime during the overnight hours on Mar. 15. Based on the damage inflicted on the boxes, it appears that mailbox baseball has returned once again in full swing. In addition to the destruction of mailboxes, a school bus on Galetta also fell victim to the culprit’s swinging bat that ended with a smashed-in headlight and front grill. If anyone has any creative ways on deterring this sort of activity or can shed some light on it, the West Carleton CPC would like to hear from you. You can reach us by telephone at 613-236-1222 ext. 2982 or email at westcarletoncpc@ottawapolice.ca. Traffic Mar. 15 Stonecrest Road, West Carleton: A complainant called police at around 10 p.m. on Tuesday to report an ongoing problem with drag racing. She stated that the cars were aggressively racing near the Stonecrest train tracks at various times of the night. Suspicious Mar. 13 Forest Edge Road, West Carleton: A complainant called police at around 7 p.m. on Sunday after four young males were observed hanging out at the dead end section of Forest Edge in two parked vehicles. The complainant was able to provide the dispatcher with a licence plate number of one of the vehicles and stated that the occupants appeared to be using drugs. By the time police arrived on Forest Edge the vehicles had already disappeared into the night; however, thanks to the licence plate information investigators were able to get in contact with the parents of the young driver to remedy the situation. Theft Mar. 16 Charlie’s Lane, Carp Village: Sometime during the early morning hours on Sun., Mar. 13, unidentified thieves entered into an unlocked vehicle and stole a Tim Hortons gift card, a Tim Hortons gift certificate, and a small amount of change. The complainant last saw his vehicle intact on Sat., Mar. 12 and discovered the theft at around 10 a.m. on Sun., Mar. 13. At around 4 a.m. on Sunday, police received a call from a homeowner on Charlie’s Lane reporting that three teens were rifling through his neighbours vehicles. The teens were described as white males, 17-18 years of age, and about 6-foot tall with a slim build. One male was described as wearing a camouflage jacket while another wore a khaki green coat.



Waste Management of Canada Corporation Environmental Assessment for a New Landfill Footprint at the West Carleton Environmental Centre OPEN HOUSE #2 Waste Management of Canada Corporation (WM) are undertaking an Environmental Assessment (EA) seeking approval for a new landfill footprint at the existing Ottawa Waste Management Facility (Ottawa WMF). The new landfill footprint will be one component of the proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre (WCEC). The proposed WCEC will be an integrated waste management facility that will include: • A new landfill footprint for disposal of residual waste materials; • Waste diversion and recycling operations; • Composting Operations; • Renewable energy facilities; and, • Recreational lands for community uses. The new landfill footprint is the only component of the WCEC that requires EA approval under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The proposed location of the WCEC and the new landfill footprint component is within the City of Ottawa in the area shown on the map below. The purpose of the EA is to study the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of the proposed new landfill footprint. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies and the public; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and, the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal.

Consultation WM recently held a series of Public Open House events as well as a Workshop to discuss the EA for the proposed landfill footprint and other ancillary facilities to be located at the WCEC. As part of the next phase of the EA, WM will be hosting a series of Open Houses scheduled for the week of March 29th - 31st, 2011. The specific dates, times and locations for the second round of Public Open Houses are as follows: Tuesday March 29, 2011

Three Valley musicians were in the national limelight. The aesthetics, a band made up of Andrew Bryant from Carp, Fraser Holmes from Renfrew and Paul Gillespie from Kanata, were one of the 12 regional finalists for the $10,000 prize at the recent 18th annual Canadian Radio Star National Songwriting competition. The event was one of many Canadian Music Week Conference activities from March 7 to 11. The other finalists, from across the country included the song Holmes wrote with Jordan Rutledge, Sweat You Out. Sweat You Out emerged as the Ottawa winner from songs played on Ottawa Virgin Radio 106.9. Holmes, 23, now lives in Ottawa where he’s focusing on a music career as guitarist and lead vocalist for the aesthetics, which formed last fall. Gillespie is on drums and vocals, and Bryant on bass and vocals as they focus on a wide variety of pop music. It was a busy week for the trio, with trips back and forth to the national and provincial capital. They did an acoustic set last Thursday at Toronto’s Global Village Backpackers hostel, one of 50 locations for Canadian Music Week. The band was back in Ottawa Friday night to open at Electric Six, at Mavericks in the Byward Market. They were then back in Toronto for the Saturday morning announcement of the national songwriting contest and to play Saturday night at The Hideout. The winner was Heather Longstaffe of Winnipeg with her song Waste of Gas. “We’re getting a little bit busier and booking more shows,” says Holmes of recent times with for pop-rock group.

Wildlife refuge looking to refresh CCWR in the running for $25,000 with Pepsi JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

The Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge is in the running for a $25,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project. Although the Dunrobin centre did well when it ran for the grant in the fall of last year, finishing 11th, it couldn’t secure one of the top two spots needed in order to claim the money. “It was encouraging because we got up to number 11 out of 77 ideas in our $25,000 category,” said CCWR founder Lynne Rowe. “I was very encouraged we did that well the first round. We’re hoping we can spread the word further – we have to get in the top two in order to win the money.” So far, the centre is ranked 14 out of 87 ideas in its category. “I’m very optimistic this year,” said Rowe. The Pepsi Refresh Project calls for individuals, businesses or notfor-profit organizations to submit ideas that will benefit their communities. The public votes for their favourite ideas and the topranked ideas in each monetary category are awarded to help fund

their proposals. “If we get the funding for this, it will make a huge difference on how quickly we’re able to answer the needs for wildlife services in the area,” said Rowe. “We’ll be able to get up and running that much faster.” Rowe said she signed up for the $25,000 grant because the amount will help get the wildlife refuge up off the ground. “We really felt that that’s the amount it would take to get us up and running quickly,” she said. “That’s a breakthrough amount for us to be well set up to begin taking in animals this summer.” It’s Rowe’s goal to have the Ministry of Natural Resources approve the CCWR and be able to foster wildlife this coming summer. “That’s a hard position to be in,” she said about waiting for ministry approval. “I know there’s going to be a huge need for animals. I’m hoping we can get enough money to complete what we need to do.” She said people can vote for the CCWR everyday under the heading “open a wildlife rehabilitation centre for fawns and other wildlife.” “This is a totally different approach; getting your community caring about your project and wanting to help out, getting them excited about us,” said Rowe. “It’s a very easy way for them to help us out. They don’t have to fork any money over to us themselves but just vote. We’re asking people to try and find two friends to vote as well.” Volunteer Melissa Kerr started a Facebook photo project with Magnus the stuffed raccoon to help remind people to vote everyday. “I wanted to give daily reminders to people to vote for us that didn’t feel pushy,” said Kerr, who lives in Katimavik. “Get them excited about voting.” She chose a raccoon because they are one of the

animals that have a hard time in Ottawa. “I chose Magnus the Raccoon because I feel that he really embodies an animal in Ottawa that is having a really rough time,” she said. “Often raccoons are in need of rehabilitation and have no where to go.” She said it’s fun thinking up concepts for where to photograph Magnus voting for the refuge, such as in bed, while eating and even during a visit to Parliament Hill. “I thought taking photos of plastic wildlife would be something fun and a reminder that people wouldn’t feel uncomfortable with,” said Kerr. She said she hopes the refuge makes it into the top two because as Ottawa keeps growing, so will the need for wildlife rehabilitation. “There is no plan for wildlife in Ottawa and we’re constantly growing as a community. It leaves us with displaced wildlife,” said Kerr. “This is important to me because I think wildlife deserve a hand – we live where they live.” Last year, the CCWR managed to raise on energy consumption every day, said enough funds to do a 100-foot portion of Roberge. She also stressed the need to switch to cleaner types of energy, like solar and wind. “Although Earth Hour has been phenomenally successful, the reality is that we’re one of the top 10 nations contributing to climate change, and we don’t have to be,” she said. nd The Green Party will host a candlelit vigil on Parliament Hill March 26, as they ANNUAL did last year. More than 400 people covered the hill in 2010, and this year there are 500 candles to be given away to participants. Roberge said Canadians at home can • New Product Showcase turn off the lights, perhaps dusting off • Special Factory Rebates their board games and lighting some candles. • Low Bank Financing O.A.C. Last year, Hydro Ottawa measured a six per cent decrease in electricity use, which is enough to power 58 homes for a month. The provincial average of energy consumption went down by four per cent, less of a drop than expected because of the colder than normal temperatures. To learn more about Earth Hour and how to participate, visit the WWF website at wwf.ca/earthhour. Users can find creative ways that fellow Canadians are participating, and download posters and tool kits for the event. Another initiative launched by WWF for Earth Hour this year is called Beyond the Hour, an online forum for people around the world to share ideas to reduce their ecological footprint.

Earth Hour facts may leave you in the dark COURTNEY SYMONS On March 26, our area may face its darkest hour. In a good way. Earth Hour, the worldwide event that began in Sydney, Australia in 2007, asks individuals to turn off the lights and reduce their energy use for an hour on Saturday, March 26, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Last year, an estimated 10 million Canadians participated in the effort to raise awareness about sustainability issues. Earth Hour has become the most successful voluntary event in the history of humankind. In Arnprior, the Galilee Centre will get into the spirit by hosting its third annual Earth Hour Marshmallow Roast. There will be a movie playing at 7 p.m. called The Economics of Happiness and at 8:30 p.m. the marshmallow roast with hot chocolate and song-readings will begin. Participants are urged to dress warmly. Hosted by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), Earth Hour saw a record 128 countries participating in 2010. But there is always room for improvement, said Paulette Roberge, head of communication for Ottawa’s WWF bureau. “The main focus this year is to try to get Canadians to think beyond the hour,” she said. “Yes, we’ve had a very successful campaign since 2007, but it’s not enough to have people do it for only one hour.” Canadians should think of ways to minimize carbon emissions and cut down

solid wood fencing for the beginning of an outdoor enclosure. If the centre wins one of the top two spots, the $25,000 will go towards: • Finishing the wooden fence enclosure. • Build more individual wildlife enclosures for different species. • Outfit the clinic with an electrical connection. • Start up a wildlife hotline. “I recently attended the national wildlife rehabilitators’ association conference in the States,” said Rowe. “I was really sold on the huge benefit that a wildlife hotline can provide so we’d really like to get something like that up and running. A lot of wildlife issues can be resolved as long as someone is there over the phone.” Rowe said she has a few fundraisers in the works for the centre, including an event for National Wildlife Week, which is in April, and a baby shower event for spring birth season. Voting ends on April 30. To vote for the CCWR, visit www.refresheverything.ca/ constancecreek. For more information on the CCWR, visit www.ccwr.ca.

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

The mayor of a rural municipality just northwest of West Carleton says something must be done about the growing number of coyotes attacking livestock. The indirect costs to small municipalities are mounting, says McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell. While it is true the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) will pay a farmer about $500 for every livestock animal killed by a coyote, the administration costs, along with employee time and resources, is borne by the township. “It’s always been the case the province pays for livestock when a calf is killed or something like that,” Campbell said. “But not for our mileage and salary to file the report. And it’s been increasing over I’d say the last five years or so.” Campbell, who has owned a farm outside Arnprior for about 20 years, said

about 15 to 20 reports of livestock kills are filed annually in McNab-Braeside. She favours the idea of a cull, provided hunters are hand-picked by MNR. “Do we just keep paying or do we have a controlled cull in co-operation with MNR,” she said. “I’m not talking about the good old boys meeting at Al’s. If the advice we get (from MNR) is for a cull, then we’ll take that advice and do it properly.” However, she admits to knowing little about the animals having the ability to reproduce at a rapid rate even when their population is under stress. Nor does she buy the criticism that MNR is in the back pocket of hunters because it receives much of its funding from hunting fees. “I’m very supportive of MNR,” Campbell said. “They can’t be bought for what they get from hunting fees.” On the other hand, she said using guard dogs, llamas, donkeys and other measures doesn’t seem to work against the wily

predator. She isn’t sure deer fencing would be any more effective. But without taking any measures the coyote population continues to expand, she said, even though in her lifetime there has been no additional human encroachment in the Dochart Creek area. “You never saw a coyote back then. Now they are in packs of 20,” she said. “A wolf will shy away. Coyotes are afraid of you.” She added that the coyotes have at least taken care of any per-

ceived groundhog problem. McNab-Braeside, along with other rural municipalities, has in the past advised the province on control measures. But Campbell said there needs to be better communication between the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and MNR. The township is waiting to hear back from the province on whether municipalities will receive additional compensation and if, in MacNab-Braeside’s case, a cull is warranted.

Twenty years later, Oscar and Felix et al will stir up laughter in the Christian Education Centre once again. The Prior Players have involved many community members over their 20 years. The current executive and members are hoping many of the alumni come out to this spring’s performance. Instead of dinner theatre, the Prior Players are inviting patrons to celebrate with them at each intermission with a ‘New York’ themed party.

From savvy entrepreneurs plugging their products to residents sick of tax increases, more than 30 people pitched their ideas for saving money to Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson’s spending control town hall meeting on March 1. “I’m here to listen,” the mayor said as a line of 33 people formed. The mayor stood taking notes at a podium for just shy of two hours as each speaker addressed him face-to-face. A favourite idea of the mayor and city councillors was swapping out the city’s 44,000 street lights with LED versions, which could save the city $27.5 million over 10 years. That’s because the lights use less electricity and don’t need to be replaced as often, said Steve Liakos, who represents the Kanata-based company that sells the lights. “The city should start investing in these,” Liakos urged. Other councillors at the meetMarcel Girard, left, plays Felix Ungar while Dave Anthony, right, stars as Oscar Madison in ing, including Bay Ward’s Mark the Prior Players production of The Odd Couple. Taylor and Tim Tierney from Beacon Hill-Cyrville, agreed that the LED streetlight idea seemed to be the most promising proposal.

Getting started in the garden MARY ANN VAN BERLO AND KELLY NOEL

Ask your neighbours if they have plants that need dividing. Gardeners are very generous with extra plants. Do be cautious – if they have lots of one plant to give away, that might mean the plant is invasive. Check for a local garden club or horticultural society. They often hold plant sales as fundraisers.

Master Gardeners

You look at your yard and see room for improvement. That’s when you decide that this year your garden is going to be better than ever. Or maybe this is the year that you try your hand at gardening for the first time. Either way, there are some starting points to consider.

BEFORE YOU DIG SITE ASSESSMENT Start by taking a look at your lot. Are there any low spots that drain slowly after a heavy rainfall? If this happens, either correct the problem or work with it. Correct it by adding soil to build up low spots, or excavating a drainage ditch to direct the water away from your property (but do check with the municipality before doing any work that affects neighbouring properties). Work with it by planning a pond or bog garden for a natural low spot or plant trees and plants there that like wet conditions. Another consideration is the lot’s orientation. How much sun does each area get per day? And finally, what is the soil type? A simple test is to take a handful of soil and squeeze it; does the soil form a ball that holds its shape? If it doesn’t, the soil is probably sandy. If the ball holds together even when you poke it, the soil is mainly clay. If it falls apart when poked, the soil is loamy (somewhere between sand & clay). This information will tell you what soil preparation will be needed. If your home is located on an outcropping of the Canadian Shield, digging a new garden bed could be a challenge, but you might consider raised beds. WHAT DO YOU WANT? Make a wish list of the features you want to include in your garden. Are you looking for the perfect garden oasis? Do you want to grow vegetables and/or a flower garden? Will you entertain in your yard? Do you need play space for children? Is there a style of garden design that appeals to you? Once you know what you want, you can make a plan. PLAN FIRST! Sketch a bird’s eye view of your property, keeping it more or less in scale. Draw the house on it and mark the doors and windows that have a view. Sketch in the driveway and other permanent features such as sheds, hydro pads and existing mature trees. Draw in a north-south arrow. Make some photocopies. Next sketch in permanent “hardscape” features from your wish-list: patios, decks, play structure/areas, a pond, fountains, etc. When you do this, consider traffic flow – it should be natural and unimpeded. Paths can take you directly from point A to B or they can be meandering and more about the journey than the destination. The walkway to the front door should be direct, but a path through the backyard might be curved and casual to encourage a slow stroll through the gardens. Add garden beds on your sketch. Instead of small beds and separate features that dot the yard, try to pull different ele-

Contact Ontario One Call for a site “locate” on1call.com/index.php/homeowners/. Knowing where utilities are buried is essential before the shovel goes in the ground for any excavation. DIGGING THE BED Use a garden hose to lay out the edges of beds. Step back take a look. Consider maintenance – will it be easy to mow around the bed? Remove the sod using a sod lifter. Make sure you remove any tap roots from weeds that might have been in the lawn. See SOIL page 31 There are other ways to make gardening easier on the budget. Start plants from seed. Many annuals and vegetables can be started indoors in April. Some can be sewn directly outdoors. ments together with the plantings. Consider placing a bed beside the patio or around a bird bath. Plan for the mature size of the plants – they do grow! So remember, no full size trees close to the house! Will you grow any food plants? An herb or vegetable garden needs full sun. Easy accessibility from the kitchen is a bonus that will make it convenient and easy to use, but full sun is a must. RESEARCH YOUR PLANTS Plants can have many roles in the landscape. They can be decorative or functional. A hedge or tree might be a wind-break or block an unpleasant view. A specimen plant such as a flowering tree or shrub can be used as a focal point. And don’t just think of ground level plants. Make the yard more appealing by creating layers of interest. Trees and shrubs should be inter-planted with perennials to add height and texture. Plants have different growing requirements. Pick plants that suit the soil type and sun exposure your lot provides. Doing all of this research at the planning stage will save money and give you a better chance of success. Some tips to think about when making your plant list: • Include a range of heights, with taller ones in the back of a border or the middle of an island bed, graduating down to the lowest at the edges. • Have something in bloom at all times. Shrubs and perennials only bloom for a short period of time, so include a variety of plants to cover the season. • Choose some plants for their attractive foliage which provides season long beauty in contrast to a few brief weeks of bloom. • Attract birds and pollinators, by having a constant supply of food sources (plants in bloom) and shelter in the form of dense trees or shrubs. • Plants look best in groups. Plant several together and it is best to work in odd numbers – 3 or 5 of a kind look better than 2 or 4. • Avoid planting in rows (except in a vegetable garden). Clumps of tulips look better and have more impact than a row of them standing at command. START SMALL If your wish list is long and beyond your budget, break the plan up into manageable bits and complete one area per year. If you have a plan that has repetitive use of features such as plant material or a building material, then the garden will look unified when finished even if it is done over several years. BUDGET There are other ways to make gardening easier on the budget. Start plants from seed. Many annuals and vegetables can be started indoors in April. Some can be sewn directly outdoors.

Soil preparation is key to gardening Continued from 30 This is a very important step in preparing your new garden.

Make sure the potted plants are well watered before you plant them. Don’t plant things deeper than they were growing in the pot. Once everything is planted, water well and continue to do so regularly until they are established.

Plenty of action on the annual Macnamara owl hoot Each late March I lead an excursion for the Macnamara Field Naturalistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Club to ďŹ nd owls. We head out at dusk and for several hours listen and call for these mysterious birds of the night. The March 20 outing proved to be one of the most successful of all. Our ďŹ rst location was a cedar-fringed opening north of White Lake. The 50 participants listened with excitement as a Great Horned Owl greeted the night with a booming â&#x20AC;&#x153;whooo-awhoowhooo-whooo.â&#x20AC;? The outing is often held a week or two later when the croaks of Striped Chorus Frogs and the chirps of American Woodcocks render owl calls more difďŹ cult to hear, but on this outing the Great Horned owned the night. I began my Northern Saw-whet Owl impersonations. This tiny owl gives a short repeated whistle. After a few minutes a small form was

spotted ďŹ&#x201A;ying low overhead. After a few more imitations, a barely audible highpitched screech was heard from a nearby spruce. It was a Sawwhet, and likely Michael Runtz a female. We failed to Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way ďŹ nd the owl, but after another round of calls a second dark form was seen ďŹ&#x201A;ying in to the opposite side of the road. Illuminated by the peripheral glow of a ďŹ&#x201A;ashlight (you never shine a light directly on an owl as they have light-sensitive eyes), a second Saw-whet offered superb

views. It began to call, revealing itself to be a male defending his territory. We watched as it comically bobbed its head in a circular fashion as it tried to pinpoint the location of the intruder (me). Not wishing to disturb the little fellow any longer, we left to ďŹ nd a Barred Owl. This large owl, easily recognized by large dark eyes and a name-giving barred bib, prefers hardwood forests. We made several stops along the beautiful Bellamy Road that runs between White Lake and Cedar Hill. At two locations we heard Barred Owls in the distance. With time running out, I made one last stop alongside a hardwood forest near Clayton where I knew a pair of Barred Owls lived. After 10 minutes of me giving that speciesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; distinctive â&#x20AC;&#x153;who-cooks-for-you, whocooks-for-you-awwwlâ&#x20AC;? calls, no answer

had been heard. I tried sucking on my ďŹ ngers to produce a squeal, a sound that hunting owls ďŹ nd irresistible. After a couple of minutes, a dark form landed behind me. Under the ďŹ&#x201A;ashlightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soft glow a beautiful Barred Owl was clearly visible. The bird showed absolutely no interest in replying to my owl calls, which I began to give soon after it landed. So why did it not answer? It is known that owls can be present but not call if they are underfed. It appears that a fat body is needed for the mating instinct to arise. It may be that this Barred Owl was underfed and not in mood for love. Or it could be that my calls were so bad they did not warrant any interest from the owl!

In what other country are there four distinct seasons to celebrate and complain about? I love living in Canada. Summer is gorgeous, of course, with its hedonistic heat and its moody storms. Autumn is my favourite season – many people find the waning of the summer sun depressing but I find the cooler weather invigorating and the refracted sunlight beautiful. I’ve seen over 40 winters come and go, yet I still have my breath taken away by the beauty of the first fresh blanket of snow, every year. And now, enter Spring. Did you know that green has a smell? The green of springtime certainly does. It’s the scent of new life pushing its way up through the melt, coaxed along by the warm rays of the sun. The tulips and daffodils in the farmhouse flower bed are just starting to push spears up through the earth. The lilies will perk up next, then the allium, and

The ewes have about a month to go before they begin giving birth. The sheep salon will be open for business shortly, so that we can get them all sheared before their due dates. We’re waiting as long as possible, because we will have to keep the ewes in the barn once they are shorn – otherwise they might catch a chill. When we (gently) tackle them for a shearing we will also give them each a shot of selenium to guard against white-muscle disease in their young. We are getting smart and learning from the previous year’s lessons. I hope the Farmer agrees to let me try my hand at shearing. I will have to wear gloves because I am allergic to the lanolin in the wool, but I think I am strong enough to hold the sheep down. Anyway, you just have to cover the ewe’s head with your leg and she gives up the fight and plays dead. It’s got to be easier than plucking a goose. And less smelly.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tear up downtown during 150th: city council LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Some city councillors say they are starting to lose patience with the slow pace at which Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light-rail transit plans are progressing. For some, the prospect of a torn-up downtown during Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th birthday is beginning to become a concern. Plans for the 2017 celebration are starting to be outlined, and some councillors think the drawn-out process to bring light rail to Ottawa could be hastened to ensure the construction is done before then. As it stands, the system is supposed to be ready by 2019. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit well with Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, who kicked off an interrogation during a March 1 meeting of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nance and economic development committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rocket science,â&#x20AC;? she chastised city staff. Other councillors followed suit, using what was intended to be a brief, regular update on the project to air their grievances over the lengthy timelines. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who is also the head of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation committee, expressed the most frustration that the project wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set to be completed before the 150th anniversary, while Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said it would be nice for the city to be able to show off the new rail system during Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sesquicentennial. The National Capital Commission will take the lead on many of the 150th celebrations, and the agency will be watching closely to see how the construction might impact events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As plans ďŹ rm up for LRT, and the impact of works on the downtown core are better known, there may be factors that will need to be addressed,â&#x20AC;? spokesperson Lucie Caron wrote in an email. For her part, Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes was mainly concerned with the plans for LRT stations in her downtown ward. Councillors have already been told about changes to the plans for some of the stations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including moving the University of Ottawa station to the surface instead of underground â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Holmes wants to be briefed monthly on any additional changes to stations. Picking up on the frustration, Mayor Jim Watson said he would work with city staff to try to ďŹ nd ways to move the project forward faster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be a common theme here: Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get on with this,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. Watson and other members of council said they were particularly worried about the lengthy

timelines because inďŹ&#x201A;ation will drive the cost of the project up the longer it takes. The ďŹ nancial numbers quoted to council â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and contributions from the federal and provincial governments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are in 2009 dollars and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for increasing costs. That troubled transit commission chair, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans,

who is also worried that the scope of the project will continue shrinking as staff try to keep costs within the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $2.1-billion budget. Deans pointed to a December report that all but conďŹ rms the downtown tunnel will have to be shortened by up to 900 metres (about a third of the total length) due to un-

derground conditions that would push up the cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the project still really viable?â&#x20AC;? Deans asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we still building what we thought we needed to build, at that point?â&#x20AC;? Staff will come back to the committee with a report in May on why the process is taking so long and how it could be sped up.

CONST. PETER JEON Shortly before 5 p.m. on Feb. 17, a canvasser, claiming to be from Enbridge Gas, knocked on a complainant’s door on Snelgrove Drive in Carp and asked if he could look at her hot water tank. Not being an Enbridge customer and sensing something unusual was afoot, i.e. listening to her intuitions, the homeowner declined his request and called police to report the suspicious incident. The canvasser was described as a 30-year-old black male who wore a safety vest and carried an Enbridge badge. To shed some light on this suspicious incident here is an answer that was pulled straight off of the Enbridge Gas website: “Enbridge Gas Distribution does not sell natural gas contracts and does not do door-to- door sales. Reasons our representatives might visit your home include reading or locating a meter, responding to a smell of gas or the performance of construction work. “Our representatives may also visit your home to offer free energy efficiency programs. However, we do not engage in any door-todoor sales, nor do we provide retail products or services such as furnace cleaning, maintenance or repairs. All of our employees carry valid Enbridge photo ID and if you are unsure, ask to see it before allowing entry to your property, sharing any natural gas billing information or signing anything. “Independent suppliers, called gas brokers or marketers, may go door-to-door offering contracts to purchase natural gas at a price that is not regulated. By law, energy marketers must immediately and truthfully identify themselves.” If you have any information regarding any criminal activity, call Crime Stoppers at 613-2338477 (TIPS), or toll free at 1-800222-8477.

Something to roar about JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

A local grandmothers group, with members from West Carleton and Arnprior, is hosting a Disney’s The Lion King fundraising gala at the National Arts Centre July 14 to help African grannies raising children orphaned by AIDS. The event, being hosted by the Kilimanjaro Grannies, includes dinner, seats to the very first performance of the stage production in Ottawa and a chance to meet the cast and crew after the show. All funds will benefit the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, which seeks to raise awareness and mobilize support in Canada for African grandmothers. “The African theme jumped out at us initially,” said Barbara Carriere, a member of the Kilimanjaro Grannies. “It’s almost the tail end to our story; we began with the dream of climbing Kilimanjaro.” In October 2007, a group of six women (Giséle Lalonde Mansfield of Dunrobin, Liza Badham of Fitzroy Harbour, Tina Courier of Arnprior, Barb Carriere from Kanata, Nepean’s Trudy Stephen and Janet Carriere of Ottawa) realized their dream of climbing Africa’s tallest mountain. Since then they have written a book, Kilimanjaro: A Purposeful Journey, to help raise money and awareness about the struggle of African grandmothers raising grandchildren orphaned by the AIDS epidemic. Carriere said the group’s goal for The Lion King gala is to raise $50,000. However, she also said if people want to attend the event, they have to purchase their tickets by April 8. “After April 8 then they will just be general tickets to The Lion King and we will not benefit,” Carriere said. She said it’s been difficult promoting the event because it is so far away, but the group is hoping for a large turnout. “This is going to be huge, an exciting event,” said Carriere. “We are hoping to have a keynote speaker at the dinner,

and, of course, this is the first time that The Lion King is coming to Ottawa.” Funds raised help pay for education fees, uniforms, books and other necessities for African children attending school. Due to the AIDS epidemic, many sub-Sahara African children are orphaned; it’s been estimated that between 40 to 60 per cent of the 13 million AIDS orphans live with their grandmothers. “We would be thrilled to have the community come out and support a wonderful cause,” said Carriere. “In Africa they live on $1 a day; for $350 or so a child could have…all things necessary to go to school for an entire year. That’s not a lot by our standards.” Other fundraising efforts include a “tree of life” students in the All Saints Catholic High School arts program are building to be displayed in the NAC lobby. “It will be bare when the show opens but we hope people will be willing to purchase a leaf for $5 and help our tree get in full bloom,” said Carriere, who added the grandmothers’ book will also be on sale in the lobby. The Kilimanjaro Grannies are also hosting a children’s matinee show on Aug. 4. Carriere said Broadway Across Canada will donate $2 per ticket sold to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. “To be able to have children come out for the matinee; we fundraise for the grandmothers in Africa who are taking care of the orphans, whether their grandchildren or orphans in the village,” said Carriere, “the connection has a lot of meaning.” Carriere, who has experienced the stage production before, said it’s a show well-worth seeing. “I often listen to the soundtrack and try to imagine the characters, but it doesn’t compare to seeing them live. This time, I think it’s going to be extra special because I have a special place in my heart for Africa, so my heart will be singing along.” For more information on the gala event, visit the website at www.kiligrannies.com/gala or for the children’s matinee, visit www.kiligrannies.com/ campaign/matinee.

Maple Run Studio Tour celebrates spring

Photo by Derek Dunn

Kevin Dodds’ work is in more than 100,000 homes and businesses across North America. An artist for Lang Calendars, which publishes charming country images, Dodds will be at the General Store in Pakenham during this weekend’s Maple Studio Run. Along with painting scenes from Renfrew and surrounding areas, Dodds does abstract impressionist work such as the one behind him. weekend to get outdoors and travel through the countryside,” Dodds said. “The maple syrup is running and it’s a chance to see all the wonderful art.” Tour stops include Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush and studios featuring glass-blowing demonstrations, wood-working with exotic and native woods, photography, jewelry in diverse creations, functional and decora-

tive pottery, intricate miniature quilting, new spring colours and fibres in woven garments and sewn couture handmade papers and journal books, and paintings in oil, acrylic and water colour. Also included are natural bath and beauty products and many more one-of-a-kind pieces to be discovered. And there will be plenty of places where people on tour can get a meal or treat.

Husband-and-wife team Pat Dubreuil and Don DeGroat, owners of Pakenham’s 3 Yellow Tulips Art Shoppe, and organizers of the event, have been selecting local artists and collaborating with volunteers for months. “The collection of artists changes and expands every year so that people have a nice variety, but also can return to the regulars,” explained Dubreuil. However, she describes that the tour provides even more than simply “exposure for these talented artists to show and hopefully sell some of their works, but also exposure of our beautiful village of Pakenham.” Most of the works mirror this affection for the area, drawing inspiration from rural life; many reflect some of the area’s historic gems, while also capturing the views and landscapes enjoyed throughout the tour.

studios even make up these aesthetically pleasing landmarks, such as the Carnivic Lodge. “Pakenham has so much to offer from our five-span arch bridge, golf course, and ski hill, to the beauty of the village and its lifestyle,” says Dubreuil. “It is only 30 minutes from the city, yet many people don’t even know about it.” “The true purpose is to have fun. People have spring fever and need to get out and enjoy the weather,” says DeGroat. Maps and detailed tour destination descriptions can be picked up at Fulton’s Pancake and Sugar Bush, any tour stop along the way (look for the green maple leaf sign), Pakenham General Store, visit www.maplerun. on.ca or call the Three Yellow Tulips at 613-624-5932.

The first signs of spring are beginning to appear as the birds return, the maple trees begin to run their sap and the Maple Run Studio Tour participants are geared up for their ninth season. Take a scenic drive this weekend (March 26-27) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to indulge in the sweet maple products and meet local craftspeople and artists on the popular self-guided studio tour that takes place in a 10-km radius in and around historic Pakenham. One of the featured artists, among the 20 participating in 15 stops this year, is Kevin Dodds of Arnprior. Dodds gained fame across North America last year when he inked a deal with Lang Calendars, Cards and Gifts, which saw more than 100,000 calendars with his quaint pastoral scenes appear in stores from Target to Walmart in the U.S. and Canada. Dodds will be on hand at the Pakenham General Store to show his works. Fresh from the printers is the 2012 calendar, which will also be for sale. “The Maple Run is really the beginning of spring, the first

It has been a stressful time for our family, Werry and Lemon, and we are thankful for so many good friends. Some relatives were unable to attend the funeral because of age, health or distance, Pilon’s Funeral Home has come up with a solution. The entire service was viewed over the Internet.
