Sharing ‘dark feelings’ Carp Ladies night speaker shares her story of struggle with bi-polar disorder KRISTA JOHNSTON West Carleton Review

Statistics show that one in five Canadians will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime. For many, the symptoms of a mental disorder begin to surface during adolescence – a time which is already full of change, emotional instability and uncertainty. Already perched on shaky ground, many people will conceal their symptoms and fail to seek treatment for fear they will be judged or misunderstood. This isolation and secrecy can often lead to serious, if not disastrous, consequences for families, yet with the right support in place, a person suffering from mental illness can rise above their circumstances and become a champion

for change. Such is the story of Rachel Scott-Mignon. On April 14, a group of about 800 women listened attentively to the 28-year-old Aylmer, Que. resident as she shed light on her personal struggle with bi-polar disorder, during the Carp Agricultural Society’s Annual Ladies’ Night. Peering out at the crowd, Scott-Mignon stressed that she was “the face of mental illness,” and even though she looked so relatable and so normal she was “the one in five people affected.” During a personal interview last weekend, Scott-Mignon talked candidly about her life with bi-polar disorder and how her treatment has led her through many struggles and successes.

Riding candidates debate recycling, attack ads JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

One of the first questions asked at the Carleton-Mississippi Mills federal riding candidates meeting in Stittsville Monday dealt with negative advertising and badmouthing opposing party leaders. And while two of the participating candidates, Karen McCrimmon of the Liberals and John Hogg of the Green Party, pledged never to use negative campaigning (with Conservative candidate and incumbent Gordon O’Connor claiming that Conservative ads in this campaign are “actually factual ads,” eliciting a giant groan

from the capacity crowd of close to 200 at the Stittsville Legion Hall), all three were on their best behaviour throughout the meeting, as was the crowd. All three candidates came out in favour of more being done to recycle. Hogg cited examples in Europe where recycling is encouraged. He particularly advocated for a co-ordinated set of rules across the country for the recycling of electronic waste. McCrimmon suggested that federal government regulations could be changed to encourage more recycling and reduction of waste. She focused in on the reduction of packaging, saying

it should be restricted and should always be compostable. O’Connor said he favoured recycling as much as possible, associated with incineration. He said that he is not in favour of more landfills. He also advocated changes to packaging in stores. “When I go to the store and buy something, it is encased like a mummy,” he said. In his opening statement, O’Connor recited the Conservative government’s managing of the economy through the recent worldwide recession. See ‘STAND UP’ page 3

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Finding ways to slow down trafďŹ c, and keep youth busy, were among the ideas tossed around during the ďŹ nal rural review workshop held in West Carleton. Carp is better off than most of Ottawa’s 26 villages when it comes to planning; it at least has a 2004 ofďŹ cial plan, unlike others that haven’t updated their vision for development in 20 years or more. That aside, almost 60 residents came out to the agricultural hall on April 12 to tell city staff:

• speed bumps might slow vehicles; • youths need a skateboard park or somewhere else to meet; • a dog park, possibly on Diefenbunker land, would satisfy taxpayers who can’t frequent family parks; • lack of parking near Huntley Centennial school and the medical centre is a problem; • the aquifer must be protected, regardless of development at the airport and elsewhere; • sidewalks are needed on both sides of all streets; • sidewalks should be maintained all year; • the splash pad should run more often;

• trails to the Carp hills are a priority; • a pathway network is needed; • the fairground extension should happen; • proposed pathways versus environmentally protected lands is a concern; • protecting the Carp River with fencing is important. Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was impressed with the turnout and many of the suggestions, though he can predict some will prove problematic. “The emergency vehicles will not like the idea of speed bumps, that I know,â€? said the West Carleton-March councillor. “The people who are speeding are

not from the Glebe. They are from our neighbourhoods. But, if you need more enforcement, call police. They will come out.� Participants learned the village is growing by 28 homes per year, with a capacity to accept another 535 homes. Over all, they were pleased with the land use decisions in place and reiterated the 2004 vision: development, yes, but with an eye to keeping the village feel. Staff will compile the information on its website, Ottawa.ca/rural review and will move on doable suggestions starting in the late fall.

If you’re upset that the federal election’s advance poll is being held on Easter weekend, don’t blame Elections Canada. The politicians who set the May 2 election date are to blame. Elections Canada Eastern Ontario ďŹ eld liaison ofďŹ cer Joan O’Neill explained that the Canada Elections Act sets out exactly when the advance polls are held. They must be 10, nine and seven days before an election. So this election, the polls are on April 22 (Good Friday), April 23 and April 25 (Easter Monday), which has upset some church-goers. The polls are open from noon to 8 p.m. on all three days in various locations around the riding (check your voter’s card).

O’Neill reminds voters they need identiďŹ cation to vote (consult the voter’s reminder brochure that was mailed out last week). About 75 per cent of people use their driver’s licence, but there are also other options, O’Neil said. She explained that electors can also vote any day up until 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 26 at the returning ofďŹ ce for CarletonMississippi Mills at 555 Legget Dr., Suite 222 in Kanata (1866-238-4171). It is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. People can also vote by mail. Electors can still get on the list after that date and can vote on May 2 even if not on the list if they have the right identiďŹ cation. However, it’s more convenient for all concerned if ensure they are on the list before the revision is completed April 27. More information is available at www.elections.ca.

He also cited billions going into research and development, tax relief for seniors, expansion of the federal public service and over $50 million in infrastructure spending support in the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding. And he said that the future would be more of the same. “The economy remains our party’s priority,â€? he said. McCrimmon, in her opening remarks, said her extensive military career in countries around the world had taught her that Canada is a very blessed country. She said she has learned the importance of belonging to a community where people stand up for each other and for the community. She pledged to work for a country that is compassionate, hard-working and one where people look after each other. She said that a Member of Parliament can play a role even in matters like the Carp Road landďŹ ll expansion which are not speciďŹ cally within federal government jurisdiction. “I am offering to be your advocate, your ally,â€? she said. Hogg said his party’s focus is the future. He acknowledged the economy

is important but noted in his view the economy is driven by the environment and if there are environmental problems, then the future is imperiled. He advocated for high speed bandwidth everywhere in Canada with communication used in smarter ways. He said that there needs to be more funding put into the researching of diseases like Alzheimer’s. The meeting, which lasted a little over two hours, saw all three candidates (the NDP’s Erin Peters chose not to take part) deliver opening and closing statements and respond to questions with no real rancor or impassioned disagreement. Indeed, in his concluding remarks, the Conservatives’ Gordon O’Connor called it the best candidates meeting that he had been at, praising its variety of topics covered and the quality of the questions. Moderator Louise Beggs, a former Goulbourn township councillor, congratulated the audience members for their behaviour and questions, saying it was the best such question period she had experienced at a candidates meeting. “I think that one takes the cake,� she said. McCrimmon, in her closing remarks, agreed with the moderator’s assessment.

About 800 women stood an applauded the touching story of Rachel Scott-Mignon last Thursday evening during the Carp Agricultural Society’s annual Ladies Night. The 28-year-old Alymer resident, who suffers from bi-polar disorder, is an award-winning speaker and spokesperson for the Royal Ottawa Hospital’s You Know Who I Am Campaign. With Scott-Mignon, right, is the society’s homecraft president Lynn Hudson. “The most discouraging thing is when diaries and blog entries and also travels I fall back into a depression, when I think across the province to tell her story in the I’m doing everything right – trying to balance exercise, eating habits, sleeping habits and still get depressed, sometimes ending up in hospital,â€? she said. “It’s not fair! It shows that a large part of my illness is due to brain chemistry that I cannot control.â€? Living with the constant ups and downs of bi-polar disorder is very overwhelming, Scott-Mignon says. When she is well, her life is highly functional and goal oriented. Not only does she dive into her position on the management team of lululemon Athletica in Westboro but she can enjoy spending time with her friends and practicing yoga. However, when her disorder rears its ugly head, she is either faced with utter depression or mania. “When I’m depressed I’m tired all the +$%%!& / time and I can’t get out of bed ‌ I isolate myself and start cutting myself,â€? she explains. “I hear voices telling me to hurt or kill myself.

“For the ďŹ rst 23 years of my life I was terriďŹ ed to share the dark feelings I was experiencing with my family, so I endured the feelings alone until I told my brother I was suicidal,â€? she explained. “It’s only in the last ďŹ ve years that I have opened up.â€? As a young child, Scott-Mignon vividly remembers experiencing feelings of overwhelming sadness and loneliness without having a particular reason. She adds that despite having a loving and stable home environment her condition continued to worsen over the years, with her depression becoming more “painful, persistent and intense.â€? Since her diagnosis, Scott-Mignon says she has received more than 30 different medications in various combinations (even seeking new medications in the U.S.), has been hospitalized four times in three different psychiatric wards (with stays lasting up to six months), has undergone electro-shock therapy 12 times and has seen a range of professionals to stabilize her overall health and well-being. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am very lucky. Fortunately I have received lots of help, partly because I’ve asked for it,â€? she said. “Unfortunately I am one of the unlucky ones who are somewhat treatment resistant. In rare cases this happens.â€? When asked about the amount of medication she has received and how the combinations of medications have affected her, Scott-Mignon explained that the side effects of psychiatric medications can be “quite dramatic and disturbingâ€? and cited an incident during treatment in Toronto where she suffered a grand-mal seizure because she was taken off an anti-depressant too quickly. “Fortunately my psychiatrist here in Ottawa is excellent and we have a constant, open dialogue about all my meds and we work slowly,â€? she says. “When you’re an in-patient in the hospital they work much faster, putting you on and taking you off mediations because you are monitored pretty much 24/7 by the nursing staff.â€? Despite having gone through so much with her medication trials, Scott-Mignon was also faced with the side effects of a drug called Clozapine, which she says, is notorious for weight gain. With in the period of one year, ScottMignon says she gained almost 70 pounds and ended up battling even harder against two other self-destructive patterns – an eating disorder and cutting herself. “The eating disorder is recently diagnosed but has been present for a long time,â€? she said. “It’s been one of the two ways in which my anxiety has manifested itself with the cutting. I got really anxious about the weight gain and started cutting myself again,â€? she added. “I hadn’t cut myself in a month or two.â€? Scott-Mignon indicated to her Carp audience last week that cutting, although misunderstood, can provide better relief for her than medication at times. She pointed out that she does not endorse this practice but says the experience of physical pain for her can provide an immediate calming affect on her more “painful psychological state.â€?

hope of eliminating the stigma attached to mental illness. She admits that telling her story to the masses has been an amazing experience not only for the positive response she receives but because the process acts like a kind of therapy for her and gives her an outlet which she thoroughly loves. “My story gets a little more self-revealing every time I speak,â€? she says. “I’m lucky enough to be doing what I love. I’d like to branch out and do more speaking, more blogging and I’d love to work for the Royal Ottawa in some capacity.â€? Her message to individuals and families who are also battling mental illness could not be more clear and concise. “Just hang on,â€? she said. “Those three words can help you through some tough moments. If you just hang on through the bad moments, when you have lost all hope of ever coming out of that lonely black hole in which you ďŹ nd yourself, you can ask for help. There is hope out there.â€?

Police nab youthful Robin Hood shooting arrows CONST. PETER JEON OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE

A 911 caller reported to police that an unsupervised youth was firing arrows into the street on Porcupine Trail, Dunrobin on April 14. According to the caller, a boy was nearly hit by a passing car. After a short search police located the young Robin Hood. Both the boy and his parents were educated and warned about the danger of using a bow and arrow, and of passing cars. YOUTH PROBLEMS IN GALETTA A complainant alerted police to a suspected break and enter attempt into a summer cottage that occurred sometime between 4 p.m. on Monday, April 11 and 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12 on Mohr’s Road, Galetta. The complainant became concerned when he noticed that some of the wooden board used to secure the garage appeared slightly pried open, as if someone wanted to peer inside, and a screen door was left ajar. Police inspected the cottage, but there weren’t any signs of forced entry. The complainant advised the police that a number of youth are starting to hang out around the bridge area on Mohr’s Road, leaving behind garbage and beer bottles. YOUR CALL IN ACTION A passerby called 911 shortly before midnight on Wednesday, April 13 to report that a vehicle had driven into a ditch on Donald B Munro Drive and was attempting to get out. When police pulled up on scene they found a 47-year-old female driver struggling to maneuver her SUV up the steep bank and back onto the roadway. Over the roar of the engine officers barked out commands ordering the driver to stop. After several attempts to break through the noise barrier and the intense concentration of the driver, one of the dispatched messages registered with her. Silence once again filled the night air as the roar of the SUV ceased with the turn of a key. With the elements of control and safety firmly in their hands the officers started in on gathering up and assembling the puzzle pieces that would constitute this evening incident. On speaking with the driver the officers uncovered a large piece of the puzzle; a faint sweet smell of alcohol was detected on her breath. To assess the significance of this find the investigating officer gave the driver a roadside alcohol screening test. As a result of registering an ‘A’ on the Alcohol Screening Device (ASD), which is defined as a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) between 0.05 and 0.08, the driver was issued an immediate three-day driver’s licence suspension and her SUV was pulled out of the ditch and towed to her driveway.

WEST CARLETON OUT OF WOODS? Week 15 and finally West Carleton has made it through a weekwithout a single deer collision. Only one deer collision was reported in the Rideau-Goulbourn area near Munster and Fallowfield Road. The total score now stands at 49 to 17 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. Disturbance April 9 Armitage Avenue, Armitage: Shortly before midnight on Saturday a complainant called police after she overheard the sound of vehicles racing up and down Armitage Avenue. The complainant stated that there were two vehicles racing around and she could hear the occupants talking about spilling beer and partying at a house on the water side of Armitage. (Please note that this call is linked to the suspicious incident below.) Always remember, your calls matter. You are the eyes and ears in your neighbourhood and together we can keep crime at bay. Mischief April 9 Woodkilton Road, Woodlawn: A pickup truck was extensively damaged sometime during the early morning hours on Saturday by an unidentified culprit. In addition to slashing the tires the culprit smashed in the windows, lights and mirrors; and scrawled inflammatory words into the painted surfaces of the truck. Because of the targeted nature of this mischief it is suspected that the responsible person is known to the owner. Suspicious April 9 Armitage Avenue, Armitage: Shortly before midnight on Saturday, a complainant called the OPS Call Centre to report that a suspicious vehicle was observed speeding down his back lane for unknown reasons. The vehicle continued to the dead end of the laneway before it turned around and flew out of the area. The laneway is located behind the complainant’s residence off Armitage Avenue. The vehicle was described as a full size sedan, possibly a Chevy Impala. Even though the complainant was unable to get a description of the driver or the licence plate number he wanted the incident documented just in case the vehicle is involved in other criminal activity. Isn’t it fascinating how your calls play a very important part in the overall community puzzle? One piece may seem insignificant, but it could turn out to be a very important piece.

Opinion

The reason for the season Jesus died for this holiday. Forgive us for putting it so bluntly, but that’s where the origin of Easter comes from. Even nonbelievers can agree that Jesus died. Whether he rose again three days later, well, that’s a debate for another day. But there is no debate that tomorrow is Good Friday, when Christians the world over remember Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross. Many of us will get the day off. Some will go to services and masses, while others will spend time with family and friends. But there are some who are trying to wring any last vestige of the sacred out of what is, at its heart, a holy occasion. While the story is hard to verify, various media outlets are reporting that a teenage volunteer at an elementary school in Seattle told a local radio station that she was told to use the politically correct term “spring spheres,” when she tried to give the kids plastic Easter eggs filled with candy. And what was the first reaction of the kids when they saw the eggs? Right, they called them Easter eggs anyway. In fairness, a spokesperson for the Seattle public school system told the Toronto Star recently

that they were not able to confirm whether the incident actually happened. This creeping secularization of Easter is getting to be a bit too much. But removing any and all mentions of anything that might even remotely be construed as religious robs children of so much of the history of all faiths – think of the great works of architecture inspired by a desire for a worthy house of worship, the literature inspired by God, and the acts of charity and social justice that inspired holy men like Ghandi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. When the secular overpowers the religious aspects of one of the holiest days of the year for a large number of people in this country, we lose sight of some very important lessons. Lessons which, though they spring from The Holy Bible, can be of valuable insight to believers and non-believers alike. On Good Friday and Easter Sunday especially, we can take away the lesson from the Gospel according to John 15:13, that “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

What goes around, crashes around By the morning after the leaders’ televised election debate, 380,888 people had watched a You Tube video of a driverless tractor in a Walmart parking lot in suburban Toronto. Apparently 670 people liked it and 28 people disliked it. For those who haven’t seen the video, what happens is that a tractor without a driver somehow begins driving in wide circles around the parking lot. It keeps returning to the side of the Walmart building, occasionally scraping it, then heads out into the parking lot again on another sweep and bashes into cars, pushing some ahead of it. It jumps the curb and crushes a tree. The only sound to be heard is the roar of the tractor and the voices of some of the people gathered to watch from a safe distance. “Oh, man, I feel sorry for those cars,” someone says. The tractor makes several sweeps. In the middle of one, a police car arrives, then another. They drive around a bit, as if they don’t know what to do. Only the tractor knows what to do. Finally, it slams into a light pole, stops and somebody climbs up, reaches in and turns off the ignition. There is no applause from the specta-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town tors, but someone can be heard saying to the video camera owner: “Put ’em on You Tube you got good money for that.” Somehow there are lessons in here for us and for our political leaders, who were too busy debating to watch. For example, the video lasts six minutes and 11 seconds, which is very long in our short-attentionspan world. Yet people watched it all the way through, which is more than can be said for the average political speech or even political commercial. Because You Tube world has strange practices of its own, several people even posted their own videotaped reviews of the event. Could such an event be restaged for political gain — a driverless bus with Liberal colours, for example, knocking over everything in sight in a parking lot, per-

haps somewhere in the West? Everybody would certainly watch and some would post reviews about it. Mind you, the bus would be condemned as “reckless,” but that might not matter. Experts say the hit count is everything. As long as thousands of people click on it, everything is fine. This is a dominant philosophy in our digital age: it doesn’t matter what I do as long as people watch it. So far that hasn’t come to politics — aside from Stockwell Day driving the jetski — but it will. As McLuhan told us, the medium is the message and nowhere is this more evident than on the Internet. Not to say anyone actually did it in this case, but you can stage an event, turn your camera on it and everybody watches, if the event is outlandish enough. This was not possible in the old days. You might be able to stage the event, but someone else had to hold the camera, then you had to get the film developed, then rent a hall for people to come see it and there might be something else on that night. This is why there were fewer driverless tractors driving around parking lots in the old days. Also fewer piano-playing cats. But technology improved and so did

our ability to exploit it to get noticed. By the 1970s, baseball fans learned to wave at the TV cameras. A decade later, they could set their VCRs to record the game so that they could come home and watch themselves waving at cameras. And when digital phones arrived, they could call their friends and tell them to turn on their TV sets to watch them wave. And now, technology is so advanced that it can all be done over the phone! What would McLuhan say to that? He would probably say that the real point is something else entirely, but for sure he’d click.

To the editor: Re. Rainstorm disrupts commuter plans, West Carleton Review, April 14. There is no mystery about why our roads are being flooded and in some cases washed out during rainstorms. This situation was predicted during the First Rural Summit held shortly after Councillor El-Chantiry was first elected to council. It is really not fair of him to blame the problem on God as reported in the West Carleton Review of April 14. One of the rural services cut by the city after amalgamation was the an-

nual cleaning out of our ditches. I was told that the new vehicle bought by our township for that purpose was taken to another part of the city and for a while we didn’t even have the long grass cut along the roadside. While that service was reinstated, our ditches are still not being cleaned out and that leads to water build-up and clogged culverts. A few years back a senior resident reported to me that she was very concerned about the situation. She said that she used to be able to go out each spring and walk through her ditch picking up bottles and paper, but because weeds and young saplings were

now growing there and the water was so high she couldn’t even walk there wearing hip-waders. She had reported it on several occasions and a man from the city finally came and told her the ditch would be cleaned out in the summer if she agreed to pay for it on top of her taxes. He also told her that it would do no good unless each of her neighbours agreed to have their ditches cleaned out as well. Another lady was told the same thing when she called following a heavy rainstorm in the middle of winter. Her ditch overflowed and the water ran down her long lane into her yard. It

then froze leaving her stranded in the house for two weeks surrounded by a yard of ice. Whether they have a ditch in front of their house or not, all residents of West Carleton and rural Kanata should be concerned because when the roads are flooded, traffic patterns are disrupted and when emergency repairs have to be carried out they cost all taxpayers a lot more than regular maintenance costs. After 10 years of neglect our troubles are just beginning! Adele Muldoon Dunrobin

Life and death on the farm Lambing season begins with feelings of joy and sorrow

THE ACCIDENTAL FARMWIFE Diana Fisher I could do. Normally I would call the Farmer in at this point but he had already headed in to work for his last day of exams. I was on my own. The ewe appeared to be very old. She had a very bony back and she was wearing the metal

ear tag belonging to the first set of sheep the Farmer had bought about 11 years ago. She had probably provided over a dozen lambs over the years. I tucked a flannel rag under her cheek to make her more comfortable. Her eyes looked sad. Her breathing was shallow. I decided to roll her onto a blanket and pull her out of the pen so that she wouldn’t get trampled by the other sheep on their way to the feeder. Sometimes all we can do is make them comfortable in their last hours. I wasn’t even sure if she was pregnant. It’s sometimes difficult to tell, particularly with the old girls. I wondered if she was dying of old age or if she had just toppled over and exhausted herself, as the pregnant ewes seem to be fond of doing. I rolled her up onto her elbows and there she sat, happily munching on a bowl of sweet feed. But still she couldn’t get up on her own. I scratched my head and decided to let the Farmer solve the mys-

born, one or more will be temporarily deprived of oxygen, leaving them a bit stupid upon entry into this world. These poor creatures are regularly found rooting around in corners and under feeders, in a feeble attempt to find their mother’s teat. They will only survive if we manage to get some of their mother’s colostrum into them. I’m no good at milking sheep. I tried, and the ewe was very patient, but I only got a few drops. We had to wait for the Farmer to come home at lunch. I mixed up a bottle of milk replacer and fed my new lambs. They weren’t very good suckers – so I filled a syringe dropper with milk and filled their bellies that way. That afternoon the Farmer did the best he could to help the lamb. But it died anyway. I peeled my smelly barn clothes off and scrubbed the itchy lanolin off my forearms. And vowed not to get too attached to the new babies this year.

I headed out to the barn the other morning with lambs on my mind. The ewes are right on schedule for the season, and they’ve been patiently waiting in the barn for a couple of weeks now. First I checked under and around the feeders in the yard. I don’t want anyone getting away with dropping a lamb and abandoning it. It’s happened before. Then I checked all corners in the barn, where the ewes who are still outside (awaiting haircuts) would most likely wander in to give birth. That isn’t the plan, of course (but farm animals laugh at human plans). The most pregnant-looking ewes have already been shorn and are inside, where it is dry and warm. When I entered the lambing area, I noticed something odd. A ewe was lying on her side, and all her pen-mates were as far from her as possible, in the corner. I climbed in to see what

Green light for weekly green bin, biweekly garbage New residential waste collection to start November 2012 LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Despite opposition from some residents, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said city council made the “smart” decision by choosing to pick up the green bin every week, while making garbage collection biweekly. “First and foremost, garbage is our problem,” Watson said at a city council meeting on April 13, just before council voted 18-4 in favour of the new residential waste collection program. “No one likes to deal with it, but it’s our … collective responsibility to find ways to dispose of (waste) in a sustainable fashion,” the mayor said. Some councillors (Rainer Bloess, Diane Deans, Jan Harder, Bob Monette and Tim Tierney) would have preferred to see seasonal biweekly pickup, which they said would have quelled fears of stinking garbage piling up in the summer months. But increasing collection to weekly in June, July and August would have axed $3 million from the anticipated $9 million in annual savings, said Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services. Not only that, but it would have reduced the amount of organic waste diverted from the landfill by about 50 per cent, because people tend to produce more organic waste in the summer, he added. Capital Ward Coun. David Chernushenko said a seasonal change in collection would only cause confusion. “Are we in fact giving the message to the public, ‘Don’t bother putting it in your green bin?’” he asked. “My fear is that if we move this way, we are going to be undermining (our message) for three months of the year.” Instead, council decided to delay the start of the new collection program by about five months. Not only will that give the city two summers to educate residents about the program before it begins, it could also provide time to get a better deal on the waste collection contract, said River Ward Coun. Maria McRae, who is also the environment committee chair and suggested the motion.

Harder was on the fence about whether she should support biweekly garbage pickup, because many residents had told her they were opposed to it. In the end, delaying the start of the change until November of 2012 was enough to satisfy the Barrhaven councillor’s concerns. But Harder still wasn’t happy that the hundreds of emails from residents that she passed along to city staff weren’t included in the public consultation analysis. Marilyn Journeaux, the city’s manager of solid waste services, said it would have taken too long to analyze information in letters, so only public feedback submitted through a waste-collection survey (and those received at public meetings) were considered - 4,806 comments in total, plus 200 emails sent through the city’s dedicated website on the issue. DIVERSION Switching to biweekly pickup is expected to divert an additional 10,000 to 20,000 tonnes of organic waste from the landfill, Weir said. That will boost the diversion rate from the current 44 per cent to around 54 per cent. But that still leaves Ottawa 15,000 tonnes short of its 60 per cent diversion target, said Bloess, the councillor for Innes Ward. The city will never be able to achieve that diversion target until it tackles the “ICI sector” – industrial, commercial and institutional organizations, Bloess said. The city is currently only focusing on residential waste collection and has yet to roll out the green-bin program to apartment buildings before ICI collection is even considered. Weir said city staff expect to hit the goal of a 60 per cent diversion rate by the end of this new waste contract, which will be in 2016. Watson agreed that Ottawa is a “lagger, not a leader” on the issue of organicwaste diversion. RURAL/URBAN SPLIT The garbage issue emerged as one of the most divisive issues for a council that

has to contend with the needs and desire in the green-bin program, even from ruof both its urban and rural residents. ral residents, because there are many maBy and large, rural councillors said their terials that can be placed in the bin that residents don’t want the green-bin service, cannot be put in a backyard composter. either because they already use a backyard composter and don’t want another system imposed on them, or because they have more concerns about the bins attracting pests and rodents. Four councillors voted against The Kanata Wellness Challenge is a FUN 6 week biweekly garbage pickup, all program to help you reach your weight loss goals and from ridings on the outskirts improve your diet and lifestyle.

Time to educate Key is that residents understand how green bins work One thing that became apparent through public consultations on garbage pickup is that residents simply don’t understand how the green bin works. Between now and November of 2012, when Ottawa will switch to biweekly garbage and weekly green bin pickup for residents, expect to be schooled on the system. “(This is) where have we missed the boat and obviously not done well with the green bin,” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder during an environment committee meeting on April 11.

Environment committee chair Coun. Maria McRae (River Ward) said she is serious about telling people how to use their green bin to avoid having smelly garbage sitting around for two weeks. There is a $400,000 education program planned, and McRae said the environment committee will have the final say on any strategy that’s used, adding that she is not keen on seeing any more television commercials of children smiling with their green bins. In contrast to the advertising that

has taken place so far, McRae said she wants the focus to be educational to give people the information and tools they need to make the program a success. Educational campaigns will focus on both residents and schools to get the message out, said Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services. Capital Ward councillor and environmentalist David Chernushenko said education is the way to “move people through that aversion to diversion.”

Dealing with diapers LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Another area of controversy around the council table when it came to garbage services was the proposed “special services” pickup, which will offer weekly diaper and incontinence-product collection for households that sign up for it. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley was particularly concerned with privacy issues. He worried that seniors would be too embarrassed to put out bags for the “special service” on off-weeks for collection. Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services, said people who are concerned about identifying themselves through the special pickup don’t have to use it. “This is not a mandatory program,” he said. Weir said between 75 and 100 households in each of the city’s five waste-collection zones are expected to use the service. Other councillors questioned whether there would be additional costs associated with offering the service, even though Weir said the program could be combined with other work that’s already being done. Supervisors already travel around neighbourhoods between collection days to pick up leftover garbage, and those trucks could also collect the “special service” waste, Weir said. People who are interested in the service will be able to sign up through the forthcoming Service Ottawa initiative on

It was with a heavy heart that Coun. Marianne Wilkinson supported a decision to scale back the new Kanata recreation centre. Even as city council approved a more conservative new design for the centre, she held out hope that the National Capital YMCA could re-instate its $6 million funding contribution in time to build the centre in its full glory. “I support the motion with some regret,” the Kanata North councillor said. “It will be a very nice facility, but not quite as nice as it could have been.” The city had been working in partnership with the YMCA for about a year and a half to build an enhanced recreation facility which would have served a catchment area that included West Carleton.

Wilkinson said she first heard rumblings that the YMCA might be pulling its funding last fall, but it wasn’t until March 2 when the organization officially announced it couldn’t afford to give the $6 million it committed to. That means scaling back the facility by about 1,393.5 square metres. Components the community won’t be seeing include the second gymnasium, a running track, enlarged individual and group fitness spaces, family activity zones and a dedicated childminding/playcare space. With the YMCA’s contribution, the total project was set to cost $49.14 million. Scaling it back will make it worth around $43 million, which is mostly coming from development charges the city has been collecting for the project for many years. Redesigning the facility will cost another $100,000 to

towards the point where they can run 5-km without stopping. The weatherman has been conspiring against the group. Despite a rainy morning where the thermometer only barely budged above 0, and the majority of mornings where below zero double digits are the norm, the group has made it to the point where they can run four minutes and then a whistle signals that they are allowed one minute to walk before the cycle starts again. On March 26, 36 runners woke up to -12 Celsius with a biting wind, and made their way to the West Carleton Medical Centre for their fifth session of the clinic. They met Mulligan and her assistants who had traded in their St. Patty’s shamrocks head gear for colourful bunny ears and got to work. Participants agreed that it is starting to get harder and they have to reach deep to find the grit to continue. Diana Baird, however, finds it’s getting easier. Her secret to success is something that will warm every teacher’s heart. “Homework pays off,” a smiling Baird stated. Participants are encouraged to repeat the day’s run/walk times on their own at least two other times during the week. The Learn to Run clinic participants will be out in full force April 30 at the Diefenbooker Classic to demonstrate the fulfillment of their commitment to improved fitness. Join them for a fun morning of exercise and community spirit with proceeds benefiting the West Carleton branches of the Ottawa Public Library. There are events for all fitness levels. Enjoy running, walking or cycling in the country. Bring the kids for age appropriate events at the Carp fairgrounds. Full details of the event can be found on the website: diefenbookerclassic.ncf.ca.

Look out Taylor - British Columbia’s Village on a Diet - Carp is gunning for the title of Village on the Run. Starting at 9 a.m. Saturday mornings, the village’s parade of athletes has their sights set on the finish line at the Diefenbooker Classic on April 30. As an experienced runner with 48 race events under her running shoes, the Diefenbooker Classic committee convinced Carp resident Dayle Mulligan that she was the ideal candidate to lead a new initiative – a free Learn to Run clinic. Hoping to recruit enough people to make a clinic worthwhile, volunteer Mulligan agreed. Then, the flood gates opened. After receiving 110 emails from interested residents in West Carleton, Arnprior, Almonte, Stittsville and Blakeney, even a race hardened Mulligan was breathless at the response. Luckily, her running buddies jumped in and agreed to become clinic assistants. The running group comprised of Mulligan, Jackie and Ron Stadnyk, Jane Dowd, Kristina Ireland and Constance Lazurko began running together three years ago. At that point, they each had achieved at least the 5-km distance, having started just like the group they are helping using a run/walk program. Slowly and consistently building their endurance and distance, the running buddies progressed to the half-marathon (21-km) and Jackie and Jane have completed several marathons (42-km). This running group was ready for the challenge of helping other community members achieve their fitness goals. Five weeks ago on a frigid, February morning with a temperature of -26 Celsius, 85 brave, runner wannabees showed up at the West Carleton Medical Centre pumped to become members of Mulligan’s Learn to Run clinic. Using a run/walk program, the group has been steadily working

PROSPECTS CAMP An elite under-16 players’ camp hosted by the tier one Central Canadian Hockey League was held at the Kinburn Sensplex last weekend. Playing for the black team during a scrimmage is Patrick Hahn of West Carleton. Other local players included Anthony Meehan. The region’s top junior prospects are now eligible for the May 18 draft. Photo by Derek Dunn

Each summer evening as dusk approaches, you may notice small sooty coloured birds chirping overhead and circling tall chimneys. Are these birds cigar-shaped, with relatively long pointed wings? Is their flight quick and jerky? Do they dive at chimneys around sunset? If yes, then you likely have chimney swifts in your neighbourhood. This urban species at risk is experiencing rapid and alarming decline. The Canadian chimney swift population has declined by 96 per cent over the last 40 years. There are several suspected causes of the declines, including decreases in suitable roosting and nesting habitats. Ontario SwiftWatch is a volunteer-based monitoring program that is designed to gather information on abundance, distribution, and habitat of threatened chimney swifts across the province. This information is essential in determining how and where to best focus our stewardship efforts to conserve this special urban species. Anyone interested in learning more about this species, its conservation and monitoring can attend a workshop hosted by Bird Studies Canada, the Ottawa Stewardship Council and the Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club on Wednesday, May 4 from 6:30 until 8 p.m. at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden Interpretive Centre, off Prince of Wales Drive. Please come prepared for a short walk through the neighbourhood. For more information, please contact Kristyn Richardson, Stewardship Biologist, Bird Studies Canada, at 1-888-448-2473, ext. 127; krichardson@ birdscanada.org.

SUMMER DANCE

Summer is a great time for kids. They need to get away from the everyday stress of school as much as adults need to get away from their full time jobs. What better way to help kids relax and enjoy their time off than to send them to summer camp? (By the way, this gives parents a nice break too.)

Your child’s interests What does your child like to do? Children know what they like and don’t like. Ask them for their input. If your child is active and loves to play sports, a sports camp is probably right for him or her. If your child is creative, then choose a camp that offers arts and crafts. Camp choices are as varied as children themselves. Choose a camp with the specific focus geared toward your child. Day Camp versus Overnight Camp Depending on the age, maturity and independence of your child, he or she may or may not be ready for an overnight camp. Some overnight camps accept children as young as six years old. Only you

Before you make a camp decision for your child, there are a lot of factors to consider. You will want to do your homework before you drop your child off for the day to be cared for by people you hardly know. It’s not easy. There are so many camps to consider and they come in all shapes and sizes. There are day camps, overnight camps, golf camps, horseback riding camps and science camps to name a few. Here are some general considerations:

can decide when the time is right. Convenient Location: Location is important because you will have to drop off and pick up your child every day. You’ll want to consider your drive time and also keep in mind the hours of the camp. Cost: Of course, the cost is something to consider. The cost of camp should reflect the service provided. When comparing camps by price make sure that you are comparing apples to apples. Some camps include lunches, while others include snacks, t-shirts, hats, extended hours and off site field trips. Price alone, can be misleading. I’ve always believed, “You get what you pay for”. Research: With pencil in hand, contact the camps you are considering and ask some specific questions. Not all camps are created equal, so ask the same questions to each camp director and compare their answers. You need to feel comfortable with their answers before you make your choice. This is not an exhaustive list, but here are a few questions to get you started:

offer a guarantee? What is your cancellation policy?

2. What are your hours for the camp program? for pre and post camp care? Is there an additional cost for extended hours?

9. Where can I find more information about your camp? Do you have a web-site? Can I register online? Can I pay by credit card?

3. What is the ratio of campers to counselors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A maximum of 10:1 is probably the maximum ratio you would want.

The best way to determine if a particular camp is right for you is to ask a lot of questions. Camp directors are used to answering questions about every detail of camp. If you don’t get the answers you are looking for, keep searching. You need to feel good about your decision. After all, you want your child to have an awesome camp experience that will forge memories to last a lifetime.

4. Are snacks or a lunch provided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? 5. What do you do on rainy days? Are your facilities air-conditioned? 6. Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a wading pool for young campers? 7. Can you provide a list of references or testimonials? Word of mouth is the best reference. Ask around and find out where other parents are sending their children. 8. What if my child doesn’t like the camp? Do you

Youth get a kick out of soccer coast to coast “Supporting youth soccer at the grassroots level is a priority for us at BMO,” said Sandy Bourne, vice– president of advertising, sponsorship, events and merchandising with BMO Financial Group. “We work to make soccer more accessible through our sponsorship of local soccer clubs, and continue to support youth players through BMO Team of the Week, a new contest that recognizes teams for their achievements both on and off the field.” The nationwidecontest runs from April to August and is open to all youth soccer teams with players aged 7 to 12. The grand prize includes $125,000 for a soccer field refurbishment, and a road trip to a Toronto FC or Vancouver Whitecaps FC home game. Teams will be rewarded not only for on–the–field accomplishments, but also for spirit, passion for the game, and community efforts. www.newscanada.com

(NC)—One million players, some three million followers, plus a burgeoning professional scene, make soccer one of the fastest growing sports in Canada. Across the country, we now have more than 840,000 registered players (and many more unregistered), as well as 1,500 youth clubs and about 46,000 teams enrolled with the Canadian Soccer Association. With more participants than any other sport, soccer is perhaps one of the most accessible sports around – all you really need is a ball and a flat surface. The majority of those playing “the beautiful game” in Canada are youth, whether involved recreationally or competitively through house leagues and rep teams. A recent BMO poll found that one–third of Canadian parents have their children enrolled in soccer, more than double that of parents who have their children in hockey, or in baseball, basketball and swimming combined. The top three reasons parent cited for getting their children on the field were to have fun (86 per cent), for the health benefits of physical exercise (76 per cent) and to learn teamwork (70 per cent).

Let’s keep kids healthy inside and out (NC)—Winter is finally over and the sound of kids playing in the neighbourhood is starting to fill the air. Bike rides, shooting ‘hoops’, or playground fun are just some of the ways kids can become active in the spring and summer. It’s a good thing too, because recent reports show that Canadian kids just aren’t getting enough exercise. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise a day, according to the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. “Healthy, physically active kids more likely to be academically motivated, alert, and successful,” said Howie Dayton, chair of the Ontario Task Group on Access to Recreation for Low Income Families. “Whatever their fitness personality, all kids can be physically fit. A parent’s positive attitude will steer them in the right direction.” Consider enrolling your child in an organized sport or recreational activity, like soccer, baseball, swimming or ball hockey. The benefits of participating in organized play are often lifelong:

• Increased self–esteem and self– confidence; • Discovery of leadership skills; • Improved school performance; • Development of healthy lifestyle habits; and • Learning that physical activity can be fun. If costs are a barrier to organized sport or recreation, there are various kinds of charitable programs that can help, like the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program. It is a national charitable program that covers registration, equipment and/or transportation costs to help financially disadvantaged kids participate in organized sport and recreation and has helped over 315,000 kids since 2005.

Sun Safety • Apply sunscreen at least 20 to 30 minutes before going outdoors. If you can do it an hour ahead of time, that’s even better. • Be sure to choose a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection, which means it protects from both UVA and UVB rays. • Don’t forget to wear protection on cloudy days as well as sunny ones. UVB rays may be partially blocked by the grayness, but UVA rays are not. • Know that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Protect yourself appropriately. Also know that you should use sunscreen no matter what time you go out to enjoy the day. www.newscanada.com

WHERE IN WEST CARLETON? Here’s an easy way to show friends and family how well you know the community. Be the first to email derek.dunn@metroland.com detailing where this photo was taken, and your name will be appear in the next Where in West Carleton?

The popular Concerts in the Park series will return to Fitzroy Provincial Park this summer. The summer schedule for the four Thursday evening concerts, hosted by West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, was announced recently. On July 7, Sidewinder will take to the stage. Hailing from various areas of the Ottawa Valley, the band members play a variety of songs from today back to the 1960s. On July 14, Local Traffic will be the second band to hit the main stage. The band is made up of five members, three of whom are from West Carleton. On July 21, another Valley band, The Bowes Brothers, will be play-

ing. They bring a unique style to country music by singing in a fourpart harmony and add in some humour. Finally on July 28, Ambush will wrap up the concert series. Known as “the little band with the big sound,” these entertainers have opened for such big names as Tim McGraw, Lonestar and Charlie Pride. The four concerts begin with a barbecue fundraiser for local youth groups at 6:15 p.m. with the entertainers to play from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Organizers will be accepting donations for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario at the gate. Waste Management is helping sponsor the concerts.

The Role of a Lawyer When Buying a Home Written by Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association

There is nothing in life more exciting that buying a new home. Home buyers thrill in watching their new home take shape, knowing that they are getting exactly the finishes and features they want. Yet the excitement and emotion of buying a new home can sometimes overshadow the fact that your home purchase also means entering into a complicated legal agreement. Chances are, it will also be the largest financial investment of your life. Due to the complex legal aspects involved in buying a new home, it is strongly suggested that home buyers consult with a lawyer before signing on the dotted line. When you buy a new home, the contract, or the signed Agreement of Purchase and Sale document, between you and your builder is your assurance that you will receive exactly what you have purchased, at the price that you have agreed to. It is also the builder’s assurance that you will follow through to the end with the purchase.

Some home buyers sign the contract first, and then take it to their lawyer for review. By this point, however, it is too late for the lawyer to suggest any modifications or changes. Alternatively, make your offer conditional on your lawyer’s favourable review. It is sometimes wise, and less costly, to agree with the builder on price and terms before involving a lawyer. (If you cannot reach an agreement with the builder on these fundamental points, there is no need to pursue the contract any further.) The lawyer will look for certain clauses which include information on restrictions and obligations that may affect your rights and responsibilities as a home owner. Typically, clauses may mention the need to bus students to the nearest school. A clause may mention a right of way or an easement registered against the lot. For instance, will there be a fire hydrant on your lot, or an electrical box? Clauses concerning mortgage approval must also

be treated seriously. A large number of Agreements of Purchase and Sale include clauses making them conditional on receiving mortgage financing. The Agreement should specify the number of days allotted for obtaining the mortgage, the process for notifying the builder and what will happen if the mortgage application is turned down. The lawyer may suggest changes to the wording and the clauses of the contract to further promote your interests. Immediately notify the builder of these recommendations, allowing enough time for a review by the builder and/or the builder’s lawyer before acceptance or possible counter. Once your offer has been accepted and all conditions have been waived, you have a firm contract. Your lawyer will begin the legal process of transferring ownership of the home and you can now go on to the next, and perhaps most, exciting step of home buying . . . getting ready to move into your new home!

Police Beat

31 April 21 2011 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

Con artist reported in Ottawa region An allusive con artist being sought by police across Canada has reportedly been sighted in the Upper Ottawa Valley region. Richard Earl Rupert was featured on CTV news W5 program April 16 with a story called Cross-Canada Con. After the airing of the show, a resident in the Renfrew area reported to OPP seeing Rupert that day. Police started an investigation and additional witnesses were located reporting more sightings of the fugitive in the Renfrew area later that night. Police report that Rupert befriends senior citizens, convinces them he’s a nephew, a distant relative or in some cases a member of building management. He then asks for money, usually for a car repair. Rupert gets the victim to attend a bank

where they withdraw a large amount of money and give it to him believing he intended to repay the money, say police Rupert travels across Canada, usually on the Trans Canada Highway, and there are concerns he may be in the Ottawa area, add police. Renfrew OPP released a warning Wednesday, urging residents of Renfrew and surrounding area to be on the alert and report any suspicious activity from unknown people matching Rupert’s description. He is described as white, 5’5”, 140-150 lb., dirt blonde/grey hair with receding hair line, clean shaven, ruddy complexion and hazel eyes. If you know of Rupert’s whereabouts or have any further information regarding him, contact your local police department or Crimestoppers.

Cold Water can kill Wear lifejacket and thermal protection on the river It’s finally Spring. The days are getting longer, the air carries a sweet fragrance and the ice has receded from the river. It’s a time when millions of Canadians finally get back their favourite pastime and head out on the water in their boats. Smartboater.ca was created by the Canadian Safe Boating Council in partnership with the National Search and Rescue Secretariat to remind Canadians to take a few extra precautions to guard against the dangers of a fall into Cold Water. Many people think that a fall into the water is no big deal. They can climb back onto the dock or swim the short distance to shore, or they can right their overturned boat and get back in. If the boat can’t be righted, they can put on their lifejacket and hold onto the boat until help arrives. The reality is when dealing with cold water those goals often can’t be reached.

It’s hard to imagine what happens should you unexpectedly find yourself in cold water. Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht, Professor of Thermophysiology at the University of Manitoba, has experienced first-hand the effects of cold water. He developed what he calls the 1-10-1 Principle to help you understand how your body will react. You will have One minute to get your breathing under control, as there is an initial gasp response followed by extreme hyperventilation. Ten minutes of meaningful movement before the muscles in your extremities lose their effectiveness, and up to one hour before you lose consciousness due to hypothermia. If you’re not wearing a lifejacket and survive the initial shock and gasp, you have very little time before their arms and legs begin to stop functioning, preventing you from staying afloat. Studies have shown that our bodies

lose heat approximately 25 times faster in water than in air of the same temperature. If you are wearing thermal protection such as a neoprene wetsuit, paddling dry suit or a floater coat/suit, it will help keep you warmer for a greater length of time. Should your boat capsize and you find yourself in the water, try to reduce the rate of heat loss by climbing onto the overturned hull or any other floating object such as a cooler. If none are immediately available, remain as motionless as possible to allow your skin to warm a thin layer of water around your body. Thrashing in the water not only disturbs this layer of warmer water but also accelerates heat loss. If you are alone, tuck your legs and fold your arms across your chest in the HELP (Heat Escape Lessening Position) to protect your vital organs. If you are with others, huddle together

interlacing your arms and legs and pressing your torsos together to preserve body heat. One of the big questions is whether to stay with the boat or swim to shore. You should only consider swimming for shore if you are wearing a lifejacket, your chances for rescue are very slim and the distance to shore is manageable. (Be aware that the effort involved in swimming will increase heat loss and adversely affect muscle movement.) Keeping these considerations in mind and taking proactive steps to protect against the dangers of a fall into Cold Water will go far towards making your boating activities safer and more enjoyable. Whether you use a power boat, sail boat, personal watercraft, canoe, kayak or fishing boat, find more information on a variety of boating safety tips by visiting www.SmartBoater.ca.

Giving animals a ‘forever home’ JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Melissa Kerr, a volunteer with the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge, says Snowball is in need of a sponsor after being left behind in an apartment in Montreal. mal it frees up that money; it allows us to take in more animals or dedicate more money to expanding the wildlife centre.” The sanctuary portion of CCWR, which is home to about 75 animals who were homeless, neglected or abused, is to give animals a forever home, said Kerr. “It helps us to keep giving the animals quality care.” There are about 12 animals currently being sponsored. “We have a wonderful family who sponsor our retired school horse Mishka who’s over 30 years old,” said Rowe. Because of her age, Mishka needs special senior horse food and hay cubes that are easy to digest. “She’s an older horse who has trouble grinding down her food enough.” Kerr said there are two animals that come to mind that could use a little extra help. One is Lady, a goat from Burlington, Ont. She wasn’t cared for correctly while in boarding and gave birth to a stillborn kid. A pulled tendon also wasn’t treated properly so she walks with a limp. Lady is also being treated for sores on her udder.

“She’s a gentle soul and just in need of someone to love her,” said Kerr. The second is a rabbit named Martin who lost his partner Clover to mammary cancer. “He’s mourning her,” said Kerr. “He misses her very much.” Rowe said classes could sponsor an animal as a project and learn about the animal and its care. “We’d like to encourage classes to sponsor an animal as a class project. They can learn about that animal and foster a sense of taking responsibility for animals and thinking about them,” she said. “Or a family could take it as a project to sponsor an animal and teach their kids about what happens to animals in the world.” Not all the animals in need of sponsorship are listed on the website, said Kerr, who added people can contact the refuge to request more information at info@ccwr.ca or visit the website at www.ccwr.ca. “It gives people the option of giving a unique and compassionate gift while also offering support.”

Upcoming Just Food workshops The Just Food workshops are two fullday plus two half-day course is designed to help aspiring farmers learn what it takes to start and manage a commercial agricultural business and to help you decide whether starting an agricultural business is right for you. Created as a decision-making tool, Explorer can help you establish the clear vision and goals you will need to guide a new agricultural venture. It will help you identify and assess personal motivations, business and farming

skills, available resources and help clarify values. This course includes a visit to a local, viable, small-scale farm, and in-class facilitation with local farmers. Wednesday, April 27, 6 to 9 p.m.; Saturday, May 7, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, May 14, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Wednesday, May 18, 6 to 9 p.m.; $300/person and $150 for each additional person with the same farm goals (ex: family, business partners). Location, in Ottawa, will be given upon registration. Register at justfood.ca.

Instead of buying a bunny this Easter season, people can sponsor one through the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge’s sanctuary program, said Melissa Kerr. “The program was created with the holidays in mind,” said Kerr, who volunteers with the centre and runs the sponsorship program. “If people want to give a unique and compassionate gift they can sponsor an animal.” The centre usually sees a spike in animals given up for adoption a few months after major holidays. “Rabbits aren’t always the cute and cuddly animals people think they are,” said CCWR founder Lynne Rowe. “Many of them end up needing rescue or given up for adoption. Right now we have 11 rabbits we’ve taken in. The number usually increases a few months after the holidays.” People have the option of visiting their sponsor animal at the centre, get to know it and see how it’s cared for, said Kerr. “It’s been really great to make those connections for people,” she said about introducing people to the animal they’re helping. “People get to see animals in a different way.” And it’s not just bunnies the CCWR sponsors out. The refuge has a number of domestic animals in need of a little extra care, including ponies, goats, pigs and cats. The program will be expanded to include wildlife such as raccoons, squirrels and deer after the CCWR receives authorization to open from the Ministry of Natural Resources. Sponsorship helps to provide quality care, food, health care, shelter and the general function of the sanctuary. “Whenever we take in a sanctuary animal we guarantee we’ll offer it excellent care, good food and a healthy environment,” said Rowe. “When people sponsor an ani-

April 21 2011 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

The Little Treble Makers concert at Stonecrest elementary school last Friday, April 15, and again for parents on Monday, April 18, was an exercise in being loud and proud. The Hip Hopping into Spring concert featured the Stonecrest Choir singing L’amour en heritage, We are the children of the World and more. The Grade 1 students sang and performed poems, while the Grade 2 followed by Grade 3 also sang a mix of French and English songs. Dance presentations also impressed the many on hand to enjoy the entertainment. Photo by Derek Dunn

The Benefit Dance is over, the lights are out and folks have gone home. From all of this I have found true Friends that have recognized the value of our friendship and have held to it’s sacred substance. The measure of my experience in friendship has given me an overwhelming sense of gratitude as my heart has experienced the expressions of love. It is with ease and assurance; I rise to say Thank You. Two very short words that can never totally express the courage it gives me to continue on my road to recovery. To truly learn that busy people in a bustling community will often take time to support the needs of others is so assuring. Bonds that we make through work relationships come ever effective in times of need and especially at times when illness visit us. This has been an uplifting experience for me through the actions of two ladies, Theresa Carron & Heather Pierce, with whom I worked. Their resulting efforts have given me the confidence to continue, with courage, for the battles that may lie ahead. My community both near and far have supported me and I say again to each and every one; Thank You, and may God bless you for your ongoing support.

THANKS I wish to express my sincere thanks to family and friends who attended my 80th Birthday - for the good wishes, cards and gifts. Special thanks to my family for making my birthday special. Lillian Rath

IN MEMORIAM

RUMP, Eddie 1938 - 2001 In loving memory of a dear husband, dad & poppa. Ten years have passed... Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, Missing you is the hardest part, As it never goes away. To hear your voice, To see your smile, To sit with you, And talk for awhile, Would be our greatest wish, Today, tomorrow, our whole life through, We shall always love and remember you! Lovingly remembered, Lois, Rob, Wanda, Evelyn, Rick, and their families

IN MEMORIAM

BUDARICK, Laura Jean April 23, 2000 If I had all the world to give, I’d give it, yes and more, To hear her voice, and see her smile, And greet her at my door, But all I can do, dear mother, Is go and tend your grave, And leave behind tokens of love, To the best mother God ever made, I like to think, when life is done, Wherever heaven may be, That she’ll be standing at the door, Up there to welcome me. Miss you so much, Love Alan

Time changes many things but love & memory ever clings. A booklet of commemorative verses is available for viewing at our office to help you get through this difficult time.

In a tiny country graveyard, Where gentle breezes blow, Lies my Mom I love so dearly, Who I lost eleven years ago. Her resting place I visit, I put flowers there with care, But no one knows the heartache, As I turn and leave her there. My thoughts are always with you, Your place no one can fill, In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven, And bring you back again. Life must go on, I know that much is true, But it’s not the same since the day I lost you. Always loved, Sadly missed but never forgotten. Brenda

ARMSTRONG, Wally In loving memory of Wally who passed away April 22, 2004. There is no parting from those we love, No distance can divide, For always in memories’ garden, You are present by our side, Remembering you can cause a smile, Bring laughter or a tear, How precious are these memories, That keep you ever near. Love and miss you, Ola

BARR, Matthew March 1, 1969 April 20, 1996 In loving memory of our son and brother, Matthew Barr, tragically lost to us fifteen years ago. Our lives are not the same without you. Mum, Dad, Timmy and Meredith

DYKENS, Estelle April 18, 2010 Beautiful memories are wonderful things, They last til the longest day, They never wear out, They never get lost, And can never be given away. To some you may be forgotten, To others a part of the past, But to us who loved and lost you, Your memory will always last. Love your children
