Dames to make a splash

Dunrobin paddles to compete at Dragon Boat Festival BLAIR EDWARDS

The Dunrobin Dames are pulling for another gold medal win at this year’s Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival to be held at Mooney’s Bay on June 17 to 19. Officially they’re called a team of recreational paddlers. These Dames come from all walks of life: housewives, grandmothers, teachers, business owners, doctors and an emergency room nurse. But when they step into a boat and grip their oars, these recreational paddlers transform into a competitive force on the water. “They’re absolutely ruthless out there,” said Will Moizer, the

team’s steerperson – the person who steers the boat. “They’re out to win.” The Dames have a long history of collecting medals at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, including two golds in the girls and women in sport category. The Dames, who hail from West Carleton, Kanata and other parts of western Ottawa, range in age from 20 to 60-plus years old and train twice a week at the Ottawa River Canoe Club in the months leading up to the dragon boat festival. “We’ve got two grandmothers in the boat and we routinely beat the RCMP (team),” said Moizer.

Developing the Carp Ridge


June 16, 2011 | 32 Pages

There will be a sacred fire ceremony to “grieve” the loss of Beaver Pond, a popular wilderness area on Kanata’s border with West Carleton. Such are the passionate opinions held when it comes to land use and development issues in Ottawa, even months after a final decision was made over a developer’s decades long plan. But in an effort to head off the kind of bitter acrimony that divided people for months on end


during the Beaver Pond dispute, individuals are working behind the scenes in West Carleton to prevent a similar outcome here. There is a movement to complete the South March Highlands Great Circle Park trail system, which is a vision for preserving and connecting various areas, including the Carp Escarpment, as wilderness protected zones. An aerial map detailing property lines on the ridge has been passed to key stakeholders by a Carp area person.

Renfrew MP raising questions, O’Connor unavailable for comment, Baird signed off three years ago STEVE NEWMAN

For more than three years, members of Renfrew County council and the local Ottawa River Canadian heritage designation committee have aspired to see the river designated as a Canadian heritage river. Support has come from the Province of Ontario, but full recognition from the federal Conservative government has been slow. Although Carleton-Missisippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor could not be reached for comment, federal minister John Baird signed a document in support back in May 2008. “This river represents a critical link to our country’s settlement and growth, and continues to be an important waterway to local communities,” Baird told the Pembroke Observer. “This nomination will be good for the river, good for the citizens living along it, and good for Canada.” However, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pem-

broke Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant said critical questions remain unanswered about the implications of heritage river designation on property owners living in the river watershed. “If the designation is meaningless, with no legal implications, what is the point of the designation,” said Gallant while addressing a county council meeting earlier this year. Gallant said it’s unclear how property owners within the watershed would be affected, considering there is no conservation authority in Renfrew County. She wondered aloud if the conservations authorities, just south of the county, would have some controlling authority. Much to the frustration of the City of Ottawa and other municipalities up and down river, the contradictory messages from the federal Conservatives such as Gallant persist. Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon suspects conservation authorities have no impact on the heritage

designation of any waterway. But he has asked property and development director Paul Moreau to clarify for the property and development committee the potential role of the MNR or the nearest conservation authority if the Ottawa River was given Canadian heritage designation. Emon suspects there will be no impact, since the designation creates no regulatory powers. Gallant didn’t field questions from county council during her address. She did say council members were welcomed to contact her with any questions. In the new-business portion of the meeting in the afternoon, several county councillors responded to Gallant’s presentation. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said she felt Gallant had confused the role of conservation authorities. However, Campbell also said the county needs to alleviate some of the MP’s concerns by demonstrating the Canadian river designation is an hon-

orary promotional tag with no regulatory teeth. “Let’s get a clearer picture to share with all municipalities,” said Warden Bob Sweet. Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe wasn’t so cordial about Gallant’s concerns about the river’s heritage designation. County council has been fervently behind Ottawa River heritage designation, hoping it will be another bonus in efforts to improve Renfrew County tourism. Knowing that, Briscoe said she didn’t think county councillors were so “naïve, stupid or gullible” to support a river designation that would be harmful. She expressed optimism that Moreau’s report would provide clarity on the matter. She also noted that many significant events, including the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, would never have happened if explorers hadn’t paddled down the Ottawa River centuries ago. Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack said any document that clarifies the situation would facilitate his municipality’s plans for future development on the Ottawa River. - With files from Derek Dunn

A Little Piece of Heaven was written by Mathew Carlin and is being directed by Simon Wellman (who also directed the Rural Root production of Larceny and Old Lace). Anyone interested in joining the cast or the crew is invited to the auditions on June 26 or 27 or July 6.

Rural Root Theatre Company pledged to the West Carleton XRay Vision Campaign all proceeds from the opening night performance of its most recent production: All for Your Delight. The partnership between these two groups had the mutual objective of promoting community awareness. In Rural Root’s case, a larger audience at opening night usually promotes larger audiences for the Thursday to Saturday shows, as many seats are filled via wordof-mouth advertising. The May 11 opening had one of the largest ever ticket sales and the Saturday show was a complete sell-out. Many of the audience members on that opening night had learned of the show via advertising by the X-Ray Vision Campaign. And now, the pay-back to the campaign is

Continued from front The person wishes to remain anonymous at this time. It shows that if the city makes a few strategic purchases over the next few years, the ridge will remain a conservation area free from major residential development. Already known to hikers and even the location of a past national orienteering competition, the ridge would become “our version of the Gatineau Hills,” according to the person spearheading the movement. It could possibly become Eastern Ontario’s largest mountain bike trail, too, though Waste Management said it will also entertain the notion of filling the mountain biking niche behind its proposed second landfill site on Carp Road. The map shows the city owns about 11 small to medium sized portions of land on the Carp Ridge Escarpment. Two portions besides the village that are home to rural subdivisions are at the March and Marchurst roads end. The Honeywell family owns the largest chunk, which is closer to March Road. Private interests own three large and crucial pieces that are connected from March and Marchurst to Carp Road to near Thomas Dolan Parkway. The Carp Ridge Ecowellness also owns a major portion of the land at that end. The idea is to have the city buy a few more parcels from private owners in order to connect the wilderness areas. It’s an idea Katherine Willow of the Ecowellness centre has heard about and agrees with. “I love it. It’s a preservation park,” Willow said. “It’s not about fighting developers. It’s about being proactive.” Asked if she would oppose the idea of making it into a formal park, meaning removing trees that might pose a risk to hikers, thus cutting down on the city’s





Carp Road snakes below the Carp Ridge Escarpment. Key stakeholders in the village and surrounding area would like to see the city buy more portions of the ridge to ensure it Photo by Derek Dunn remains parkland for hikers and other users. risk of liability claims, Willow said she could live with that. She said she’s not an extreme environmentalist who believes all human interference is bad. “If they have paths and that sort of thing, it can be a tourist thing,” she said, “which can be good economically for the whole area.” In fact, she is in the midst of seeking city approvals to build four more “healing houses” and an expanded learning centre. “I’m committed to this being a small healing centre. Eventually we’d like to build a dome for spiritual events, meditation and worship,” she said. “There are a lot of strong feelings for the ridge. I feel good about this direction.” The city’s rural parks director, Gaetan Morin, is aware of the talk around Carp about preserving the ridge and possibly converting it into a formal hiking trail system. He said it would help the Rural Health Coalition fulfill its mandate, but he insists the situation is much different than in Beaver Pond. “There is a lot of interest and there is a lot of discussion at the community level,” Morin said. “But we have to be careful. This is not Beaver Pond all over again.

There you had one developer who had the right to develop the land for a long time. Here there are lots of different pieces of land.” He also doubts much of the land can be zoned for residential development since it is essentially wetlands. However, Morin expects a meeting to take place this spring with various stakeholders to get the ball rolling. Would parking lots be wanted let alone needed? Would homeowners – some of whom who may have moved to the ridge for the privacy offered - be open to more people walking around? Does the city have the money to purchase land? “There is going to have to be a lot of meetings,” he said. “If it did happen (city converts to parkland), it wouldn’t happen for a long time.” West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry likes the idea of converting the ridge into a hiking park. He, too, said the Beaver Pond debate won’t happen here. But he also cautioned that it could take some time to complete the necessary studies. “It is beautiful up there and I think it’s a good idea,” he said. “To connect and make accessible the area is a good idea. It will never be another Beaver Pond.”

The amount of untreated sewage and rainwater that overflows into the Ottawa River has been cut by more than half since 2006. The results come as the City of Ottawa continues to roll out its $250 million Ottawa River Action Plan. One component, the $30 million real-time control system, made a big difference, Mayor Jim Watson said during a June 3 announcement. That system was completed in December and Watson said sewage overflows are expected to go down even more in 2011 during the first full year of operation of the control system. Despite above average rainfall between April and November of last year, there were “significant reductions” in the amount of sewage that overflowed into the river, the mayor said. The mayor said the action plan is the city’s response to

residents who said the safety of the river is a top priority. The investment is a good one, aid River Ward Coun. Maria McCrae, because it will create a better, safer community for future generations. “Just like roads and buildings, our environment is an asset,” said McCrae, who is also the chair of the city’s environment committee. “Nothing hits closer to home than the river.” In 2010, the total combined sewage overflow was 424,000 cubic metres. That’s compared to more than a million cubic metres of sewage measured when the city first began to collect the data in 2006. The next step in the Ottawa River Action plan is construction of a $140 million system of huge underground tanks to hold the overflow so less of it is released into the river. That project is supposed to get underway in the next two years, McCrae said, but the city needs to secure funding from the federal and provincial governments before it moves forward – something the mayor has been working on.

City now accepting all plastic containers in blue bin

The city is taking the guesswork out of recycling by allowing all plastic containers in the blue bin. Now, following an announcement on June 10, the only materials residents can’t put in their recycling bins are plastic bags and Styrofoam containers. Most notably, the thin No. 1 plastic containers used to package fruit, eggs and baked goods – also referred to as “clamshell” containers – are now allowed in the bin, as are single-serve yogurt cups. Plastic pails, painting trays and flower pots can also be recycled now. That may come as a surprise to many residents who were already putting those items in their bin, leaving the city’s waste collection contractor to sort the forbidden plastics out of the pile. That extra step will be no more as the change is effective immediately. Part of the confusion is because the city used to collect many of these types of plastic in the past, but a dip in the market for some recyclable plastics around 2003 meant it cost municipalities more to collect certain plastics than they could get in return for selling them in the commodities market. Ottawa and other municipalities stopped collecting some types of plastic because it was too costly to do so. But the provincial government recently created a financial incentive for two facilities in southern Ontario to buy types of plastic that aren’t in high demand, so the city now has a buyer who is willing to purchase those types of plastic. The city’s solid-waste services department estimates the change will divert an additional 1,400 tonnes of waste from the landfill. But River Coun. Maria McRae, who heads the city’s environment committee,

said she expects residents will put a lot more than that into their blue bins now that recycling will be simpler. “We expect to collect a lot more than this.” That will bring Ottawa closer to its target of diverting 60 per cent of waste away from the landfill, said Mayor Jim Watson. “Anything to bring us closer to 60 per cent is good for the environment and our pocketbooks,” he said. The expansion will end up costing the city around $46,000. While the addition of new plastics is expected to generate around $50,000 in revenue, it will also cost more to collect additional plastic. But the cost is worthwhile because it helps extend the life of the city’s landfill, said Marilyn Journeaux, the city’s manager of sold waste services. “Our landfill is a valuable asset,” Journeaux said. Now, the city will try to get the message out to residents. McRae said a lot of that public education will happen at events that were already planned for the fall to inform residents about the new biweekly garbage/weekly green bin collection system that will begin in June of 2012. Visit for a complete list of recyclable materials. WHICH PLASTICS GO IN THE BLUE BIN? New items: • All food and household containers with plastics numbered 1 to 7 • “Clamshells” (fruit and bakery containers, clear egg cartons) • Single-serve yogurt containers • Pails (metal handle removed) • Planting trays and flower pots Items that were already accepted: • Plastic bottles, jars and jugs • Plastic tubs and lids (yogurt, margarine, etc.).

RIGHT THING, WRONG THING An intoxicated cyclist mumbled to the officers that he was trying to do the right thing by riding his bicycle home. However, he ended up doing the wrong thing by driving his bike into the side of a parked BMW. It was obvious to the officers the cyclist was intoxicated; a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath, red bloodshot eyes, poor coordination and balance, and slurred speech. The cyclist admitted to the officers he consumed “quite a lot of beer,” and that just prior to the accident he drank five beers at a local restaurant on Manotick Main Street.

Collisions all over rural west Ottawa. In fact, during week 23 rural west drivers reported eight deer collisions - four in each of the two wards. Deer collisions are still a concern in rural west Ottawa. However, with the longer daylight hours and better visibility during rush hour traffic, the number of reported collisions vary widely from week to week, ranging from zero to several collisions spread across the two wards. Compare this to the winter months where a majority of the collisions seem to occur during peak traffic times and tend to concentrate in the West Carleton area. The total score now stands at 62 to 33, still in favor of RideauGoulbourn.

What would course through your mind if you awoke to the sound of a loud banging noise coming from outside of your home at two in the morning? Would you be concerned and suspicious, all at the same time? As this is an unusual event, you jump out of bed and peer out the window to investigate. There, moving around in the darkness is a shadowy figure in the backyard. Now, what are you thinking - safety and security perhaps? No doubt your heart is pounding a bit on your chest and your mind is racing about the house conducting a security sweep - did I lock the basement windows, how about the patio door? Picking up the phone, you call 911 and describe the situation to the operator. After advising the homeowner that it would be unsafe to let his dog out into the backyard, the operator confirms all of the doors and windows are locked and that his family is safe inside of home. As patrol officers quickly made their way to the rural residence, tucked away in some distance corner of Rideau-Goulbourn, the operator continued to work with the homeowner on assessing the risk levels - sounds were coming from close to the house; did not hear any breaking glass or vehicles driving away; the alarm system is armed and it wasn’t triggered; the exterior motion sensor lights were triggered and the sense is that it possibly scared off the culprit. Good, the current overall risk levels are low. Feeling safe and secure, the homeowner felt comfortable enough to let the 911 operator go until police officers could arrived on scene to conduct a perimeter search of the outer castle walls. Safety and security are, without a doubt, integral components of our everyday lives. Most time we are unaware of its presence until … bang.

Continued from front She has been with the Dames during the team’s 10-year history. The other teams may have younger and stronger paddlers, but they can’t match the Dames’ work ethic, he added. “You know if you’re going to join that boat, you’re going to work hard,” said Moizer. Of course, the Dames have a few aces up their sleeves. The team is coached by Bevan Schmidt, a former national dragon boat paddler and his wife, L.A., who once rowed for Team Canada, and who is one of the Dames’ strongest paddlers. “We get world-class coaching for our team,” said Moizer. “It’s the secret sauce.” SCHMIDTS From 2004-08, Bevin and L.A. competed on the Canadian national team in the world dragon boat championships – considered the Olympics of dragon boat racing in a sport relatively new to North America.

“I have a few medals from the national team I’m pretty proud of both as steersman and as an athlete,” said L.A. The Dunrobin woman won the Ontario Female Coach of the Year Award in 1991 and has coached paddle sports for the Rideau Canoe Club and Canadian national teams. In 2007 she coached the national junior girls’ team at the world championships in Barcelona, Spain. The Schmidts started ORCC in 2001, a club nestled close to the YWCAYMCA camp and the Kanata Sailing Club, located on the edge of the Ottawa River. The Schmidts said they wanted to introduce the sport – more popular in eastern Ottawa – to the western part of the city. Since then, it has become the perfect incubator for young paddling talent to hone their skills at the club, which is located at 1610 Sixth Line Rd., just north of Kanata. The paddling sports include sprint kayak and canoe with long, tippy and slender boats; marathon

canoe; outrigger canoeing (ocean canoes used in Hawaii, familiar to anyone who has watched the television series Magnum PI) – a new and up-and-coming sport in western Ottawa; and finally dragon boating. The Ottawa River Canoe Club was one of the first organizations to feature a ladies-only team – the Dames, which has evolved from a group of newbiepaddlers to regular contenders for a gold medal at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. Dragon boating is relatively new to Canada and the U.S. but is an ancient sport in China. The Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, a tradition that goes back 2,400 years, is a fertility rite performed to guarantee good crops. Boats shaped from head to tail like a Chinese dragon, powered by a team of 20 paddlers, work as a team to maintain a rhythmic stroke to the beat of a drummer at the front and are guided by a steerperson to the rear. They compete in 200-metre, 500metre and 1,000-metre re-

gattas. Dragon-boat paddlers sit in the boat, in a style similar to the canoe; they can paddle more than 70 strokes per minute and the boats can move across the water at speeds of more than four metres per second. DUKES AND DAMES L.A. has been a Dunrobin Dame since the recreational club was first created a decade ago. She said the success of the women’s-team spurred some conversation among the ladies’ significant others. “The husbands of the wives (said) they wanted to do that, too,” said L.A. “That’s how the Dukes and the Dames grew.” There were also too many women who wanted to row with the Dames, leading to the creation of a men’s and women’s mixed team, called the Dunrobin Dukes and Dames. The Dukes and Dames will be competing in the mixed category at the

dragon boat festival. Both teams usually pull off their best races of the year at the Ottawa event, said L.A. “I really look forward to just (our) really-small 10year club coming into the city – because we’re looked upon as country folk – and just doing our absolute best,” she said. “I’m excited to see what kind of medal we can get.” The Dukes and Dames are hoping to make it into the Top-40 at the festival, said Bevan. “I think the Dames will be very competitive,” he added. “They’ll be gunning for another medal for sure.” FUNDRAISER The Ottawa River Canoe Club has turned into a magnet for Kanata-based teams and athletes preparing for the annual dragon boat festival. The Ottawa Sea Lions and the Draggin’ Docs, two of the top-fundraising teams in the festival last year, both practice at the

Ottawa River Canoe Club. The Sea Lions, a team of female Jewish paddlers, raised $24,864 last year. And every year, The Draggin’ Docs, a team of female doctors from all areas of medicine, including family doctors, and obstetricians, are among the top fundraising teams at the festival.

Resident responds to doggone suspicious behaviour Ottawa Police Service

On early Saturday evening, May 21, a complainant called police using the nonemergency number at 613-230-6211 to report a suspicious van that was slowly driving up and down MacLaren’s Side Road. The complainant’s suspicions were raised when the unfamiliar white van drove slowly passed her home several times with the side window rolled down and the driver appearing to be checking out her home. While patrol officers were en-route to the call, a neighbour assisted the complainant by flagging down the driver and engaged her in friendly conversation. What she learned through her conversation was that the driver was out looking for her lost dog. From this call we can see how the complainant correctly listened to her intuitions and responded by taking action. The important signals she picked up on were the unusually slow and repetitive drive-bys, the unfamiliar feel of the van, the side windows rolled down, and the driver appearing to be fixated on the houses and not on the roadway. By not ignoring her inner security signals and resisting the urge to try and reason the event away, the complainant

demonstrated her sense of awareness and empowerment for safety and security. Taking action means doing something, not just shrugging one’s shoulders and closing the curtains. When the complainant took interest in the suspicious van and started to monitor its movements, she did something. By picking up the phone and calling police, whether by calling 911 or the nonemergency number, the complainant started to engage the safety and security resource. Because patrol officers could be coming from a distance, it is important to start the ball rolling earlier on in the call rather than later. Also, taking action in securing your neighbourhood does not mean you need to go it alone. By getting a neighbour involved in helping you solve a problem, you are not only getting back-up and support, but you are also helping to strengthen the essential safety and security fabric of your community. Remember, we must all work together to build a safe and secure community.

Dragon Boat champions look to win again this weekend




Kids in the House The joke going around Parliament Hill is that most of the new MPs on Parliament Hill are the class of 2011. Unless you’re a New Democrat. Then, you’re likely to be called part of the Kindergarten Class of 2011. In fact, you could say that parliament’s Quebec caucus is brought to you by the letters N, D and P, and the number 102. But jokes aside, a lot of the conversation since election night has been about the NDP, and well it should be, considering their best ever-showing, making them Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition. It is good news that the new MP from Sherbrooke, Pierre-Luc Dusseault, is Canada’s youngest-ever MP at age 19. Overall, four students from Montreal’s McGill University are now headed to Ottawa. In spite of the jokes about the Honourable Member for Las Vegas, Ruth Ellen Brosseau (the new member for Berthier-Maskinongé), seeing so many young people on the benches will change how young people view politics. No more turning on the parliamentary channel to see a sea of wrinkles and grey hair, but scattered about, people who look and sound like them. Yes, some will disappoint, but many will rise to the occasion. Sometimes, people suc-

ceed best against lowered expectations. Who’s to say that there might not be a future prime minister amongst this crop of young people, not just in the NDP ranks? In all of this though, whither the Liberals? Once one of the most successful political parties in the western world, the Liberals now have only 34 seats in the House of Commons. While it is too early to tell who will lead the party’s decimated ranks, we again come to the issue of youth and a humble suggestion – why not Justin Trudeau for leader? It would show the electorate that the Liberals too are serious about young people. Trudeau has said he will not seek the Liberal leadership. But by doing so, he would show himself worthy of a task even his father would find Herculean. And it would show that a few politicians out there are more interested in standing up for his party’s ideals, not simply its crafty means to acquire power. The Liberals may fall back on older, familiar names like Frank McKenna or Ottawa’s own John Manley. We can only hope they don’t go that route. The establishment candidates will only mean more of the same for an electorate tired of it all. If the Liberals hope to make a fresh start, they have to make a clean break.

Getting around the politics of getting around Election season and construction season merge once again with the announcement that the province will spend a ton of money to make things easier on the Queensway. Who knows? It might work. Mostly it hasn’t. The creation of more lanes leads to the creation of more cars and a quick return to the congestion that began it all. It can only be a pipe dream in this age when people are driven by cars, but wouldn’t it be nice if that kind of money – $200 million this time – could be spent on light rail and buses. These thoughts are occasioned by a week in Toronto, a vastly different city, but with some conditions that should be familiar to us. Spending some time there, mostly on foot, gives you a useful perspective on getting around in the city. First, any city is better if you don’t have to drive in it. Toronto’s network of subways, buses and streetcars takes the strain out of getting around the city. If you can walk a few blocks, public transit will get you at least close to where you want to go. You save the big parking fees and the mental anguish that go with driving a car in that city.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town We don’t have public transit like that. Ours is not bad for getting from a suburb into downtown. But you wouldn’t want to spend a day trying to hit all the Ottawa high spots – the National Gallery, Carleton, U of O, Rockcliffe, the Newport and the Prescott – by bus. Mind you, not all of Toronto is that well served either. If you live within reach of the subway, you’re fine, but many don’t. It has been observed, rather ominously, that the people most likely to vote for Rob Ford, the ultra-conservative winner in Toronto’s 2010 mayoralty race, were those who lived in areas with the worst public transit. In Ottawa, an ultra-conservative could pick up quite a few votes, using that criterion. But transit isn’t taken that seri-

ously here, especially politically. If transit was uppermost in people’s minds, a city politician who failed on transit issues would be out of work quickly. Transit matters less here, and the reason for that is that it is still possible to drive. Sure, you can run into a little congestion, a five-minute delay here, a 10minute delay there, but most downtown traffic problems could be solved easily by opening up a big trap door under the tour buses on Wellington Street. Meanwhile, people still think it is easier to drive. In Toronto, some people think that. You can see them, not moving on the Gardiner, not moving on the Don Valley Parkway, trying to circle the block for the fifth time to find a parking space, stuck in the left-turn lane on King or Queen. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, some of that grief is headed our way. Notice how many of the downtown parking lots you used to frequent aren’t there any more? It happens here too: more condos, more people, fewer parking lots. The bad thing is that it is harder to drive a car; the good thing is that fewer people will try. All of which poses a challenge to the

public transit people. If you don’t want people to drive in Ottawa, what alternatives are you going to give them? Oh, right: a tunnel under downtown. Do you we (a) really think that’s going to happen? or (b) really think that’s going to solve everything? Good public transit, which most of Toronto has, is not only about getting to work and back. It is also about getting to the store and back, getting to the hockey game and back, getting from the museum to the shopping centre and over to the supermarket before heading home. It would be worth a lot more than $200 million to have that here.

I don’t have to nag Paulina about getting up for school or doing her homework anymore. I don’t have to remind her to do the laundry or the dishes. Our relationship will now evolve into one where we talk on the phone, she drops in for Sunday dinner and special family celebrations. She gets to make her own schedules now. It’s her life to do with what she wants. I’m very excited for her. At the same time, there is a huge lump in my throat because I remember struggling to get her to sit down in that high

chair, like it was only yesterday. I remember chasing her naked butt down the street when she escaped from me at bath time. I remember her kindergarten teacher calling home to tell me that my tiny four-year-old was a nervous little girl, and that perhaps I should send more snacks. Somewhere along the way, that little girl became a very independent young woman. She doesn’t need any of us anymore. She will be just fine on her own. I can’t take the credit for raising such a strong, intelligent and mature young woman. Paulina took a little bit from each person that she admired, and with the best parts of us she formed herself. Paulina has always had a heart for the needy person in school or in the neighbourhood. I hope she never loses that. Maybe she will find a future that is more of a calling than a career. All I want for her is health and happiness. And as our time together living under the same roof draws to an end, I wish I could travel back in time for just an afternoon, to the day when she asked me if I would play Barbies with her, and I was too busy doing something else. I have the time now, Paulina. Ask me again.

WE NEED A NEW X-RAY MACHINE BBQ IN THE BAY The volunteers at Station 63 in Constance Bay invite everyone to an open house and barbecue on Saturday, June 18, starting at about 11 a.m., running until 3 p.m. The grill will be on and delicious summer treats available, as well as activities for kids and adults. Support the firefighters and community by paying a visit.



The first project of the West Carleton Health Access Foundation (WCHAF) is to replace the 30 year old obsolete x-ray machine at the West Carleton Family Medical Centre with a new and updated digital x-ray unit. The cost will be $350,000 and there is no government funding available to make this happen.

We need your help! If we don’t do something soon we will be forced to close the x-ray service unit and “one-stop shopping” will no longer be available at the medical centre.

Female Issue?

It makes sense to support this diagnostic service as our community is rapidly expanding, increasing the need for services. We need it for ourselves, our families and our older people who find traveling difficult. This x-ray service is available to everyone with a doctor’s requisition.

Heilkunst treats any possible FEMALE ISSUES, from Menstrual to Libido Problems and Menopausal Symptoms to Female Cancers. We focus on regeneration, rebuilding, rebalancing and rejuvenation of our body, mind, soul and spirit. Your natural, safe and effective health alternative!

Wolverines Girls gain even record after weekend action


The Wolverines were able to win the battle of field position in the first half. Defenders Taylin Smith and Jenny McClure shut down the strong Sooners attack. On offence the Wolverines were able to move the ball with a strong running tandem of QB Hillary Wilson and RB Dana Davidson. Wilson would score the game’s first touchdown on a 10-yard run and a 6-0 Wolverines lead. The Sooners proved why they were in second place as they immediately answered with a score of their own and the game stood tied at 6 at the half. The Wolverines were able to threaten with some passing in the second half as receivers Skylar Scissons and Dana Boettcher each had receptions for first downs. Wilson would add her second TD of the game on a 20 yard scamper to put the Wolverines up 12-6.

11 June 16 2011 - WEST CARLETON REVIEW

Local players drafted At least three West Carleton players were taken in the Central Canada Hockey League draft in May. Kemptville 76s grabbed centre John Mclean of Dunrobin 27th. Goalie Nicholas Hodgins of Carp was taken 60th by the defending league champions Pembroke

Lumber Kings. Cornwall Colts took defenceman Johnny Kyte of Carp 119th. Meanwhile, the Ontario Hockey League Sudbury Wolves drafted defenseman Evan De Haan of Carp and the Ottawa Valley Titans with the 40th pick of the CHL draft.

Nepean first on the scoreboard Continued from Page 10 From the start this game showed the makings of a shootout with the leagues two highest scoring offences. Nepean was able to get on the scoreboard first as they scored two TD’s in the first half. West Carleton was able to move the ball well with QB Bria Katsoulis connecting on passes to Chelsea Hay and Haley Gow. With the half time score 12-0 Nepean, West Carleton made some adjustments on defence and was able to hold the Nepean squad to one score in the second half. The game would end 18-0 for Nepean. In game two the Navy team would rebound very quickly against a Bell team that was 3-1 and in third place. On their second series the Wolverines would show that quick strike offence when katsoulis would throw 25 yards to receiver Chelsea Hay who would take the ball 45 more yards for a 6-0 lead. Hay was also able to dominate this game from the kicker position as she would boom the ensuing kick-off 65 yards to Bell’s goal line. With poor field position Bell had their backs to the wall. After

a quick 20 yard run brought Bell a first down, West’s defence would remove all doubt of the outcome of this game. With rusher Taylor Gribbon pressuring the Bell Qb, defensive back Mallory Donaldson jumped on a hurried throw and ran the interception back 35 yards for a TD and a 12-0 West Carleton halftime lead. From there the defence would shut the door with strong coverage from first year defender Shaylyn James and an interception from Leoni Hagan. Second year receiver Katie Baker would also add a 35 yard catch and run to keep West’s offence moving. Hay would score the last Td of the game with receiver Rylie McManus catching the two-point convert. The game would end 20-0 for the Wolverines. SEASON CLOSER This coming weekend the Wolverines will close out their regular season. Gold will play two games Saturday in Nepean vs. Bell 2 and Nepean White. West’s Navy team will play one game Saturday versus Ottawa Sooners and close out the regular season Thursday, June 23 versus Le Patro. Championship weekend is set for Saturday, June 25 in Nepean.

Waste Management of Canada Corporation Environmental Assessment for a New Landfill Footprint at the West Carleton Environmental Centre Existing Conditions & Evaluation Criteria Available July 4th The Project Waste Management of Canada Corporation (WM) is 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), 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 Environmental Assessment 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 adjacent map. 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. Get Involved In Phase I and Phase II of the EA Process, the public was consulted regarding existing conditions, evaluation methodology, and evaluation criteria and indicators. The following reports will be available for public review beginning July 4th: • Existing Conditions and • Evaluation Methodology, Criteria, and Indicators. These reports can be accessed in two ways: • Electronic versions are available under the “Resources” tab on the project website ( and • A hard copy version is available for in-person viewing at the WM Ottawa Hauling Office – 254 Westbrook Road. Those wanting to review the materials in person are asked to contact one of the individuals noted below to arrange for a time to view the materials. Open Houses will be scheduled to take place in September to provide a summary of the existing environmental conditions; present the methodology for the comparative evaluation of the proposed alternative new landfill footprints; and to identify the preferred new landfill footprint. Notification of specific dates, times and locations for the Open Houses will be provided to the public through advertisement, direct mail, and email, as done previously for other Open Houses in the EA Process. Please check the project website for updates regarding the public consultation for the EA process. Have Your Say As always, we welcome you to submit your written comments in person, to the project website (, or via mail, email or fax to the coordinates below. We will also receive your comments on our project information line at (613) 836-8610.

Your neighbourhood could be getting its very own Rink of Dreams. An outdoor refrigerated rink at city hall planned for next winter is causing a stir, but the Ottawa Senators Foundation has bigger plans to create a series of similar rinks across the city and region. Danielle Robinson, president of the Sens foundation, said the NHL-sized rinks would have permanent boards and concrete platforms that would be used as basketball courts in the summer; however, they won’t be refrigerated or maintained by ice-resurfacers like the Rink of Dreams at city hall. It’s part of the foundation’s new focus on providing access to social and recreational activities for kids outside school hours, she said. “Those kids in those neighbourhoods, they really don’t have a lot of additional funding within their families to get out and participate in sport and reaction opportunities,” Robinson said. “The idea around this is to provide a facility and the resources to make it much more accessible to make it much more accessible.” Locations for the rinks haven’t been decided, but Jim Durrell from the Sens foundation said the group as looking at putting the first rink somewhere in Vanier. If that rink is built this fall, it will serve as a project for the foundation’s yetto-be-named community rinks program, Robinson said.

The foundation is remaining tightlipped on details about the program, including how many rinks will be set up and where, or how much the project could cost. Those details will be revealed during an official announcement in early fall, Robinson said. Steve Kanellakos, the deputy city manager of operations, said the program will improve year-round recreational opportunities throughout the city. “It’s not just about this,” he said, referring to the showpiece outdoor rink at city hall that was approved by city council on June 8. “This is about improving our neighbourhoods across the city.” While these smaller neighbourhood rinks won’t be refrigerated, they will be an improvement over the regular outdoor rinks the city sets up, Kanellakos said. “It will be a much more enhanced experienced,” Kanellakos said. The city currently has about 300 temporary outdoor rinks on its books, and Robinson said that some of the new rinks the foundation sets up could replace some of the more rundown rinks that already exist. There could also be new rinks in areas that don’t already have one, she said. The cost to build and set up the rinks would be absorbed by the Sens foundation through its fundraising efforts for the Rink of Dreams program. Maintenance and operations for the rinks would be done through the city’s existing rinks program, which offers grants to community groups to take on the task of maintaining the rinks using volunteer labour.

St. Mary’s extreme makeover JESSICA CUNHA

“It was a collaboration with everyone,” said Grade 12 student Nathalie Boucher. Nancy MacNider, the executive director at St. Mary’s said she couldn’t believe the transformation, likening it to the personal transformations the girls who come to the home experience. “It was such a gift for us, a profound gift,” said MacNider. “It’s something beyond the imagination. It’s just very meaningful. “What this says to our youth is the community cares about them, they’re not alone.”

They managed to raise around $5,000. “It’s been a real community project,” said interior design teacher Carolyn Dyer, who added it wouldn’t have been possible without the various businesses that donated money and items to the project. William Swietochowski, who is married to the school’s chaplain Ariane, donated three days of work from his renovation company to help the students complete the task. “It was nice to find someone with all that heart and effort,” said Swietochowski, who works for Premier Renovation Services Inc. “I just wanted to help out and it seemed like something that could make a difference.”

It was a makeover fit for a home renovation television show. Students from the All Saints Catholic High School’s interior design course and club transformed St. Mary’s Home’s recreational room from a small-looking, dark space into a light, airy, Zen-like living area. “It’s unbelievable,” said Grade 11 student Michael Meehan. “When you walk in, you’re like ‘Whoa.’” That sentiment was echoed by about eight girls living at St. Mary’s – a social service agency that offers help to young pregnant women, young moms and dads and their infants – when they saw the completely re-done room for the first time on Thursday, June 2. “It changed from this mustard yellow colour to this peaceful, relaxed setting,” said Michaela Asquith. “It’s amazing, it’s beautiful,” said St. Mary’s staff Catherine Adey. “This is totally different. It’ll support these guys.” The students from All Saints spent two and a half days, from May 31 to June 2, redecorating and upgrading the living space. “It’s really incredible that people outside (St. Mary’s) would put this much work in,” said Adey. “It’s a tremendous amount of support.” The walls were given a fresh application of neutralcoloured paint, new couches were ordered, a flat-screen TV was mounted on the wall and little extra touches showed the amount of thought and work the students, teachers and volunteers put into the redesign. “We knew they were in dire need of a makeover,” said Grade 12 student Mallory McCarthy. “We wanted something calm and Zen-like.” The students first started working on the project in October 2010, raising funds through designer cupcake

Whether it is tornadoes in the southwestern United States, earthquakes in Asia, or ice storms locally, we are quickly reminded of our vulnerability and residency in the real world when extreme weather strikes. Last week I was humbled by the power of wind. It was late Wednesday afternoon when I noticed how dark it was becoming. It was unbearably hot and there was no wind. I went to take clothes off the line and heard a loud sound, something like a train approaching in the distance. My stomach knotted when realized that it was the sound of wind. Within seconds the lake was being whipped into frenzy and the wind began to rush around the house. I ran inside as trees began to thrash in a wild frenzy. Soon they were sideways and snapping in half like twigs. I went to the basement for shelter. It was a microburst – a one-directional tornado. When the wind finally abated, I ventured outside to find more than a dozen

trees downed. Amazingly none hit the house, but one big pine precariously hung over it. Both cars were crushed under fallen pines. The power lines and pole lay tangled in the mess, the transfor mer smashed on the ground. No power. No phones. No cars. I felt helpless. I found a flashlight and located a power box that I had fortunately charged the previous week. It powered our recently acquired high-speed hub and my computer providing me with email service! I frantically sent out messages to Ann (who was in Toronto and fortunately missed the event) and my sister. After half an hour I had no reply, so I began to email friends. Finally contact was made and I reported my situation. It has now been six days since the event and we still have no Hydro or

phone service. A newly purchased generator is supplying temporary power. The new pole might arrive tomorrow, but there it will be some while until full power is restored. Yet I look out my window and see Rose-breasted Grosbeaks eating sunflower seeds and Tiger Swallowtails nectaring on the garden plants. These animals survived without generators or emergency crews with chainsaws. They did not spend hours on phones haggling with insurance companies and are carrying on as if nothing had happened. For a few, such as the Pine Warblers that were nesting in one of the big pines that were uprooted, there have been consequences. But perhaps the pair survived and will re-nest in another pine. The fallen trees will soon be food for Long-horned Beetles and fungi of various forms and colours. New growth will spring up in the sun-drenched gaps and as time passes new trees will take the place of the fallen giants. Nature simply carries on as if nothing happened. Regardless of the state of my cars, power, or landscape, that tells me that everything really is okay. The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is
