COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

A local clinic has seen an early victory in a competition charting innovation in healthcare. The West Carleton Family Health Team won the Early Adopter’s Award in the ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge hosted by Canada Health Infoway, a not-for-profit organization seeking to develop new technology to organize health information. The challenge asks health-care providers across the country to chart the progress of their innovative technologies. West Carleton’s health portal, a secure website allowing patients to access their medical records online, was their ticket into the competition. Registration began in September of last year and because the clinic entered right away, they were eligible for an early bird prize of $5,000 – which they won at the end of December. Dave Sellers, director of operations at the clinic, said that it was a no-brainer to enter the competition. “We’re always looking for a challenge,� he said. “So why not?� With an award already under their belt, and the technology already in place, the next part of the competition involves submitting a monthly log charting improvements and growth of their health portal. The portal allows patients to log on and view lab results and see their upcoming appointments. INNOVATION, see 2

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - January 5 2012

West Carleton health team wins award for innovative health care INNOVATION, from 1 It also allows patients to submit questions for nurses to answer, update contact information, and view links like the Canada Food Guide. Users can update their “log book” with waist measurements, blood pressure, or body mass index. They can view their immunization records. As their weight fluctuates, they can enter their new information to chart their weight loss or gain on a graph. “The data they see is coming right out of their medical record; it’s live,” Sellers said. “It’s a real-time environment. They don’t have to wait for us to upload the information.” Currently, 1,589 patients are registered on the portal. The clinic’s challenge will be to increase that number, and the number of transactions on the website. Their strategy to improve the portal and remain contenders in the competition is to keep on adding to the site. “Every time we put a new feature on, more people join,” Sellers said. One upcoming feature is an online drug list. Any drugs pre-

scribed by a doctor will be posted on the individual’s profile, allowing the user to verify that they are taking the medication. This serves two purposes, Sellers said. The patient can keep track of their prescriptions and dosages, and doctors can determine whether the patient is taking the proper medication. Another major feature in the works is e-scheduling, allowing patients to make non-urgent medical appointments online. If they are able to implement such a feature, Sellers said, not only would it increase the use of their health portal but it would make them eligible to enter another competition within the Infoway challenge. Categories of the competition include patient access to health information, which they have entered, and e-scheduling, which they are hoping to enter. Fraser Ratchford, Infoweb’s group program director, said that their organization conducted a poll in the spring of 2011 and found that Canadians are eager to see e-scheduling put in place. “We decided, let’s see what we can do to start e-scheduling across Canada,” Ratchford said.

“We’re trying to spark innovation across the country.” The current Outcomes Challenge competition comes after Infoweb’s Ideas Challenge which took place in the beginning of 2011. The difference is that entries in the former have the innovation and technology already in place; the latter only had to be an innovative and feasible possibility. Winning entries included a phone application for pregnant women called Mom To Be, allowing people to chart their medical appointments and nutritional information on their cell phone. But this competition targets clinics that already have the technology in place. “This allows them to spread the word,” Ratchford said. “The can show the outcomes and advantages to using these innovations, and they can further develop what they already have going.” The competition doesn’t end until March 2013, when the ultimate winner will be the organization that shows the most growth, improvement and innovation overall. The grand prize is $50,000.

Saturday January 7, 2012 10am - 4pm

Various awards will be given throughout the competition for those gaining momentum, so there is more than one opportunity to succeed. Sellers said that West Carleton has a lot of work to do – maintaining and enhancing the existing health portal, implementing an e-scheduling program, on top of their regular, everyday duties. “We’re doing this in between all of our other jobs,” Sellers

said. “Our prime objective is to look after our patients.” But if they succeed in this competition, that is precisely what they will be doing. “We want our patients to improve their health, and this is a tool to help them do that,” he said.

2011: The year that was

2011 BRIDAL TRIBUTE

Dames win two silver medals YEAR IN REVIEW, from 3 • An almost record-breaking heat wave reached 37 degrees after a huge wind storm that overturned trees, knocked out power and flattered the main stage at Bluesfest on July 17. The cottagers of Marshall’s Bay in the Galetta area were particularly hard hit. Many large white pine trees were either snapped off or uprooted, and multiple cottages and cars were damaged due to fallen trees. • The Dunrobin Dames dragonboating team earned two silver medals and one bronze during the World ICF Dragonboat Club Crew Championships in Toronto tournament. • The pilot season of a soccer team for children with special needs wrapped up in Dunrobin after eight weeks of sessions. Greg Patacairk was the head coach of the team of 13 autistic children who took to the soccer pitch for the first time in their lives in 2011. There were no designated teams and anyone was allowed to score on either net, but it’s an opportunity for the kids to run around, get some exercise and be involved in a team sport. AUGUST • Johnny Winter performed in front a packed house at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre. Around 200 blues fans flocked to the community centre to see the legendary bluesman and local musician David Gogo play music on a small stage. • An historical society refurbished a cemetery in Fitzroy Township, the final resting place of six of the area’s pioneer settlers from the early 1800s. The Fitzroy Township Historical Society held a ceremony honouring the contributions of the Smiths, a pioneer family, at the Smith Pioneer Cemetery on Carp Road. • Carp saw its first flash mob at the Carp Fairgrounds. As the sun set, music began to blare and dancers slowly assembled until a full-on, 60-strong dance routine took place before the eyes of bewildered onlookers.

• City council voted to rename part of the West Carleton Community Complex after Dr. Roland Armitage. Armitage was mayor of the Township of West Carleton from 1991-94, as well as a Second World War veteran, a veterinarian, and an inductee into the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame for his horse racing. • Aug. 25: The ouster of MPP Norm Sterling by the Progressive Conservative Party in Carleton-Mississippi Mills was “disgraceful,” said former Ontario premier Ernie Eves during an appreciation dinner for Sterling at the Canadian Golf and Country Club. SEPTEMBER • Huntley Anglican Parish, representing the congregations of St. James the Apostle Church, Christ Church and St. John’s Church, flipped the switch, becoming the first parish in Ottawa to use solar power. • Constance Bay hosted its first Terry Fox Run on Sept. 18, offering three different routes for those helping to continue Terry’s legacy. The route began and ended at the Constance & Buckham’s Bay Community Centre. • Carleton-Mississippi Mills candidates attended an all-candidate’s debate on Sept. 19 held by the Kanata Chamber of Commerce and Metroland Media Group at the Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Kanata.

• Around 50,000 people put on their fall fair finest and headed to the Carp fairgrounds. Volunteers came back in full force to help take down and clean up what turned out to be a very successful fair. • An environmental assessment began in September to determine how best to cease the erosion problem along the Carp River near the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre. Approximately eight metres of land has been lost over a nine-year period from 1999-2008. The loss is due to a shift in the main channel of the Carp River near the community centre.

West Carleton hosts Red Trillium tour


To the editor: Congratulations to Legion Branch 616 on its $67,000 grant towards a new septic system at the Legion in Constance Bay. While it’s hardly glamorous project, it is fundamental to helping to keep our communities vibrant. A new septic system, an accessible washroom, new flooring or lighting – these are fairly straightforward building improvements. But to many in

communities across Ontario, it means people can continue to visit with friends, join in activities and stay connected. It goes to the heart of what makes a community hall welcoming and open to all. The Ontario Trillium Foundation grants greatly needed monies to many legions and community halls throughout the province. Since 1999, the Foundation has been pleased to support legions throughout the Champlain region with 21 grants totaling $703,100.

A resident-led task force in Constance Bay has launched a survey to tackle their first challenge as an organization. The Bay Community Connection was established this summer to improve the health, safety and security of the community, beginning with senior residents. Bruce Gordon, one of the volunteer members of the group, has been involved since the group’s inception in mid-2011. “Originally, we started this to get community policing more involved on the community level,” Gordon said. Community police officer Peter Jeon was one of the founding members, along with Constance Bay residents and various stakeholders from organizations like the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre and Ottawa Public Health. The group decided to narrow their focus to a particular demographic. “Basically, we can’t do everything under the sun,” Gordon said. Many seniors live in the area and face challenges including transportation, isolation, surviving financially and maintaining their homes. The group created an online survey for seniors from Constance Bay to complete, the results of which will advise the next step of their action plan to improve the health, safety and security of senior residents.

On Jan. 4, the organization met with the Sandhill Seniors group at the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, asking them to complete the survey and provide feedback on their needs. “What we want to do ideally is to bring community resources into the village of Constance Bay,” Gordon said. The community policing centre is located in the Kinburn Client Service Centre, which Gordon said isn’t fully utilized because many people don’t know it’s there. The overall goal is to make Constance Bay a “one stop shop,” where people can get all the community resources they need without driving to Kinburn. “Western Ottawa has a lot of access to information and resources,” Gordon said. “We want access to that, too.” Survey results will be analyzed and followed by a public consultation, likely in February, Gordon said. After tackling issues that seniors face in the community, the task force will move onto issues surrounding local youth. To complete the online survey, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CommunitySeniorsSurveyCBBCOB. For those without computer access, hard copies are available at the local branch of the Ottawa Public Library in the community centre on Len Purcell Drive. Completed surveys can be dropped off at the library or at the Lighthouse Restaurant located at 655 Bayview Dr.

Bi-lingual or bye-lingual

P

arlez vous Francais? For Dartmouth-Cole Harbour MP Robert Chisholm, that may very well have been the question that scuttled his run for the leadership of the federal New Democratic Party. In December, Chisholm announced that, after months of criss-crossing the country and after a pledge to get his French-language skills up to snuff, he came to the realization that the leader of the government-in-waiting needed to be able to parlez Francais on day one, not after a period of intense cramming. A unilingual Anglophone leading a party whose major seat strength comes from Quebec will probably have as much chance of electoral success as an unilingual coach has of remaining at the helm of the Montreal Canadians. For the NDP, last year was a frustrating one, and Chisholm knows frustration when he sees it. While the NDP soared to new heights last year under the late, charismatic Jack Layton, the official opposition was thrown into limbo when he lost his battle with cancer in August, Back in 1998, Chisholm came agonizingly close to power. As the leader of the Nova Scotia NDP, voters

flipped a coin – and it landed on its side. His NDP won 19 seats, the exact same number as the Liberals. Parliamentary convention saw to it that the incumbent Liberals got another crack at governing, with Progressive Conservative support. Chisholm’s decision to drop out of the federal NDP leadership race because of his French problem now throws some light on Ottawa Centre MP Paul Dewar and Abitibi-James Bay-Nunavik-Eeyou MP Romeo Saganash, who have problems with French and English respectively. Dewar’s French is passable, good even, but not great. Saganash has struggled in the debates to express himself well in English. This is not a moot point. Remember back in 2006 and the Liberal leadership race? The joke question going around was, “How good is Stephane Dion’s English? About as good as Gerard Kennedy’s French,” a sop at the linguistic skills, or lack thereof, of both candidates. Then, at the convention, it was Kennedy who helped put Dion over the top. One of Dion’s oft-repeated, shortcomings as leader? Canadians had trouble understanding him – in either language.

Spaced out in the ‘burbs

A

ccording to the usual deadlyaccurate computer projections, the seven-billionth human being has been born. This has implications that none of us can really understand. However many people now suspect that there will soon be seven billion people living in their neighbourhood. This is because of intensification, a policy that has taken on the properties of sacred cow in many cities, including this one. The idea, which has great surface plausibility, is that cities should encourage more people to live in central areas. They will do this by planning and zoning. This will prevent ugly urban sprawl with all the costs that go along with it. The central area will flourish with all its new residents, who will not clog the streets with their cars because they will use public transit. What a nice city we would have if all this were to come true. But it probably won’t. We will continue to have sprawl and it will coincide with more crowded central area neighbourhoods and more cars and more unhappy people. And why would that be? Because the usual deadly-accurate reading of human nature says that intensification flies in the face of it.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town The human nature in question is the Canadian variety. Canadians have always had lots of space and have always enjoyed that. The experts tell us we don’t need all that space but average Canadians might not agree. They want enough room to swing a cat, as somebody’s grandmother used to say. You know that for yourself. Take a trip to some crowded country in Europe or the Third World and the first thing you want to do when you come home is to stretch out, walk down the street without dodging people, park your car without having to drive five kilometres away, go out in the yard and enjoy the fact that you have a yard. You also like the look of space. You like to see the sky, the tops of trees. Somebody puts an apartment building where the sky

used to be and you don’t say, “Oh, goody! Intensification.” This is why all those neighbourhood fights are taking place and it’s why people are still moving to the ’burbs. People like space and they see that there still seems to be lots of it. Against them are the planners and urbanization experts who say this is the wrong way to live. They picture a new urban utopia and can’t understand why everyone else doesn’t see it too. Everyone else does see it, in a way. It’s probably fair to say that most people agree in principle with the idea of intensification. They would just prefer that intensification take place on somebody else’s street. From the point of view of human nature, another problem is that the chief beneficiaries of intensification may not exist. The idea is predicated on the notion of a new generation of urbanites, who like to live in low-rise apartments, eschew the automobile and take the bus everywhere. Are there enough such people around to make the theory work? Do you know any yourself ? If you do, they might be rich because many of the new intensified dwellings that are springing up are for people

who have lots of money. To many Ottawans, then, intensification means rich people moving into tall buildings in the neighbourhood and blocking the sky. And one more thing: since the transit system is still somewhat less than perfect, those rich people are going to be bringing their cars. Meanwhile, people who can’t afford the intensified lifestyle or want enough room to swing a cat will continue to buy singlefamily dwellings in the suburbs, which means more development and more cars driving downtown. Imagine how much worse it’s going to get when we are eight billion.

HANG ON DEER 2011 is almost over. It’s week 51 and 14 more deer collisions were reported in rural west Ottawa. This week West Carleton reported in 10 collisions while Rideau-Goulbourn reported in four. The count now stands at 167 to 104 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn.

CONST. JEON Ottawa Police Service business district: It appears that a break and enter attempt was cut short when an alarm system door contact was triggered at an automotive repair shop on Carp Road. just after 3 a.m. on Thursday morning. Upon hearing the shrieking alarm the unidentified culprits quickly fled the scene. After receiving the alarm notification from the monitoring company police arrived on scene in short order to discover that a door lock had been pried off. On search of the building’s interior nothing appeared disturbed and nothing was reported stolen.

quickly fled the scene. The homeowner stated that she overheard a loud noise at around 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 10 but when she went out to investigate the vehicle had already disappeared into the darkness. Based on the position of the mailbox post, the homeowner surmised that the vehicle had to have entered into the ditch on her property so as to line up with the mailbox. SUSPICIOUS • Dec. 14: Armitage Ave., West Carleton: Shortly before 9 a.m. on Wednesday a complainant reported observing an unfamiliar vehicle parked at the deadend section of Armitage. The complainant stated that the vehicle had been parked in the school bus turning zone for about 30 minutes for no apparent reason; two strangers were seen sitting inside of the black coloured vehicle.

OTTAWA PUBLIC LIBRARY The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is giving members of the public the opportunity to have their say in shaping the design of the new West District Library’s (WDL) spaces and services. Planning for the WDL at the site of the existing Beaverbrook branch is currently underway. A pre-design public feedback survey is now available. Ottawa residents have until Jan. 31 to complete it and share their comments. The library wants to know what the most important elements and design considerations of the WDL are to users and what they like most about the current Beaverbrook branch or their local branch. A pre-design public consultation was held on Dec. 15. The material that was presented at the event and the survey is available online at http://biblioottawalibrary.ca/ en/main/about/library/west/ all/updates. For more information, e-mail WestDistrict@BiblioOttawaLibrary.ca. R0011214238

Patrol Officers in the West Carleton area responded to 47 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of Dec. 9 to Dec. 15. From these calls for service the following is a partial breakdown of incidents by community: • Carp business: one commercial break and enter. • Armitage: one suspicious. • Howie: one mischief.

Carp break and enter thwarted by alarm


Opinion

Counting birds in Algonquin provides inspiration I enjoy all aspects of nature. Through the 20-plus years of its existence, this column has dealt with subjects varying from flower deceit to ant mafia protection. For the past few weeks, however, birds have dominated its topic for good reason: it was the time of the Christmas bird counts (CBCs). I finished off the year as usual with a CBC in Algonquin Park, one of my favourite places in the world. The Algonquin count is held between Boxing Day and year’s end, this year it was held Dec. 30. As for all CBCs, the count is defined by a circle with a 12-kilometre radius. That area is broken down into sub-sections, each with a leader. Participants cover an assigned part of a subsection, and at day’s end, everyone converges at the Visitor Centre for a hearty meal followed by a compilation. Despite its distance from most cities,

MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way the Algonquin CBC attracted 85 people. Many, like me, are former seasonal naturalists. Others are birders who love the wild nature of the count. Where else in Ontario can one walk all day and not see another person? What other count offers the possibility of encountering marten, moose, or eastern wolves? This was the park’s 38th count, and only two participants – Ron Tozer, retired park naturalist and count originator, and Bill Crins, former seasonal natu-

Distracted drivers charged OTTAWA POLICE The City of Ottawa’s selective traffic enforcement program (STEP) targeted motorists improperly using reserved transit lanes and distracted driving last

month, resulting in 289 charges being laid. Distracted driving was the prevalent charge with 227 tickets being issued, while 62 charges were laid for improper use of reserved transit lanes.

ralist and current top ecologist for the Ontario Ministry of Natural REsources - have been on all of them. I missed a few, taking part in about 25. For the past decade, I have covered an 11 kilometre route that includes part of the Track and Tower Trail. We (usually Ann is with me) are dropped off prior to dawn and walk (usually snowshoe) along an unploughed access road from Highway 60 to that trail. On the trail, we walk east to Mew Lake, where our car awaits. The route along the old OAPS rail bed is beautiful. It follows the Madawaska River, which is open in small sections where annually I anticipate a duck that never shows up). The river is fringed with spruce and fir, and these harbour northern finches, boreal chickadees, and gray jays. That is, on most counts. The past two have been nearly birdless, with many observers encountering only two or three birds per hour!

This year was different. We heard birds – common redpolls - almost as soon as we began, and at dawn found a blackbacked woodpecker chipping off spruce bark. Almost every time we stopped and called for birds (pished and squeaked), black-capped chickadees, red-breasted nuthatches, pine siskins, or whitewinged crossbills appeared. By day’s end, we tallied 18 species, more than half the total tally of 32 species for the count. We found nothing unexpected but others did. A winter wren and a northern sawwhet owl (photographed with a cell phone!) were rarities recorded that day. The CBCs for this winter are over but birds and other animals will continue to provide inspiration for future columns. In fact, the other day a long-tailed weasel was seen chasing a flying squirrel . . . The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca

Residents can turn their real Christmas trees into a holiday treat for farm animals this winter. Donating a live spruce, pine or fir tree is another green alternative to throwing it in the green bin once the holiday season is over. The Elk Ranch on Old Carp Road and the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge on Dunrobin Road are both collecting live Christmas trees as forage for elk and goats. “The goats will delight in stripping the trees down into naked skeletons very quickly,” said Lynne Rowe, founder of the wildlife refuge. Her goats’ winter diet consists mainly of hay, so some spruce or pine needles are a real treat, Rowe said. The same is true at the Elk Ranch. “It adds a different diet for the elk,” said Thom van Eeghen, who owns the Elk Ranch with his wife Fay Armitage. “It gives them some roughage. It adds different minerals and vitamins to their diet that they don’t normally get in a captive situation.” The elk will strip the tree bare, eating the pine needles and the bark. “They’ll eat it right down to the trunk,” said van Eeghen, who has about 90 free-range elk on his property. “The elk eat it up pretty much completely and you’re helping a farmer at the same time.” Live trees that have been treated with chemicals in the water are not recommended for the animals, said van Eeghen. “The elk can smell it,” he said, adding chemically-treated spruce, pine or firs are safely burned in the summer. “They won’t touch those ones.” He also said to ensure all tinsel and decorations have been removed before dropping off a tree. Tinsel can be difficult for animals to digest and can harm the elk and goats. Every year, van Eeghen said the Elk Ranch receives between 20 and 30 trees from residents, which can last the herd up to three months. “They’ll eat a lot,” he said. People can drop their live trees off at the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge at 2494 Dunrobin Rd. in the ditch or on the front lawn, or at the Elk

Ranch, located at 1271 Old Carp Rd., in front of the barn. People are also invited to visit the ranch store and pick up some meat. “Stop by and buy some elk meat, some roast or some steaks, some sausage or even some hamburger if you’re willing to fight the frigid temperatures at your barbeque,” said van Eeghen. Rowe said that she would also be happy to accept hedge trimmings or other natural scraps throughout the year.

The toboggan hills at Walter Baker Park, Rickey Place Park and Bridlewood Park are now open to the public. The City of Ottawa opened its 55 approved sledding hills on Wednesday, Dec. 28, after around 10 centimeters of snow fell between Tuesday evening and the following day.

“Residents are reminded to keep safety in mind, and to wear helmets while participating in winter activities such as sledding and skating,” said the city in a news release. The city also opened the ice pad in front of Ben Franklin Place, located at 101 Centrepointe Dr. in Nepean. For more information on approved sledding hill locations, opens and closures, safety tips and outdoor rinks, visit www.ottawa.ca.

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

He’s the imposing, stern face of one of the Canada’s largest municipal police forces. But few would know that Ottawa police Chief Vern White is just as comfortable in a graduation cap as he is in his police blues. In a profession that prizes a street-smart, rough-and-tumble approach, White is turning that concept on its head and making scholars out of his officers. And he is starting with himself. “Yeah, I’ve been in school for 20 years,” White said wryly. “I would paint myself as a cop. A lot of others might paint me as an academic.” He is in the final stages of his doctorate degree in leadership and public accountability. That latest chapter follows a long history of learning that began with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and psychology from Acadia University and a diploma in business administration. He followed that up with a master’s degree in conflict analysis and management (his thesis was on restorative justice) from Royal Roads University in British Columbia. “When I joined the police, I didn’t have a degree, and I didn’t know I could actually get one. “I see the importance of continuous learning,” White said, and it’s an attitude he tries to pass on to his troops, no matter how much he might get teased for it. But White doesn’t constrain his academic pursuits to his own learning. He has been passing on his knowledge to others through guest lectures and university courses for several years, and now he has taken it to a new level. In 2008, White worked with his doctoral university, Charles Sturt University in Australia, to develop an undergraduate program specifically for Ottawa Police Service officers. So far, 16 have enrolled in the two-year program, two classes have graduated and the program is now being opened up to officers from other police forces. It focuses on criminal justice and has recently been made available to police officers from across Canada. Most of the program is done online, with the final course at the uni-

versity (at the officer’s expense). He also teaches a master’s-level online course in global law enforcement for Charles Sturt. Locally, White is a familiar face in classrooms at both Carleton University and the University of Ottawa as a professor at the graduate and undergraduate levels. “I enjoy the interaction with young people in particular,” White said. “I do find I learn a lot about finding solutions in other ways, from people who haven’t already decided what the solution is.” The chief is also making a name for himself across the globe as an international lecturer and as a professor. In his four or five weeks of “vacation” time, White travels to places like India, Dominica and Alaska. It started in 1998, after someone heard him speak at a community problem solving forum when he was in the RCMP in the Yukon. That led to a speaking gig in Alaska, and White never looked back. “I learn something every day,” White said about his globe-trotting lecturing. “I will bring back some different thinking,” he said. His most recent jaunt took him way out of his comfort zone, to the Chinese Peoples’ Police University in Beijing. White was ready for a culture clash as he addressed halls of up to 160 policing students and senior police officials on topics such as police accountability and transparency and community mobilization. “It’s a little more difficult there because things like possession of 50 grams of cocaine is a death penalty. So having a discussion around addictions is challenging,” he said. “When they talk about human rights issues, it’s really interesting because they talk about law and justice. It’s their job to hold up the law. If the law changed and the justice system was different, they would uphold it differently,” White said. “I spoke really openly about what I see as the changes in policing needed (in order to be) successful,” he added. White said lecturing is the best way to teach other cops about his approach to policing. “Sometimes you really do have to get the message out one lecture at a time.”

Local hockey teams competed in the Bell Capital Cup at Scotiabank Place from Dec. 28 to Jan 1.

Capital Cup fever hits Ottawa DAN PLOUFFE From trading pins with foreign friends to playing for division championships on the Ottawa Senators’ ice at Scotiabank Place, local hockey teams created a new truckload of lasting memories at this year’s Bell Capital Cup. “A lot of guys who are now playing in the National Hockey League have fond memories of it,” notes Mike Eastwood, a former NHL’er himself who coached the Kanata Blazers to the final of the minor atom ‘AAA’ competition. “For these kids, they know all that and they grew up in Kanata with this tournament right before their eyes every Christmas and now they get a chance to play in it. “To make it to the finals is something they’re going to take with them and remember for the rest of their lives.” Arenas across the city were buzzing throughout the Dec. 28 to Jan. 1 event as 410 atom and peewee-aged teams competed in 19 divisions at the 13thannual tournament, including a record 15 teams from overseas who were all hosted by local participants. Parents of the Carleton Place Atom House ‘B’ Kings who billeted the Korean Eagles found themselves cheering just as hard for their guests as they were for their own kids. Despite living half a world apart, the connection between the young players was instant as they bonded with tobogganing, video games and mini-sticks, note Carleton Place hosts Eric and Cynthia Belliveau. “I think it’s really the start of something that will last beyond just the week they’re here,” says Eric, whose son Alexandre roomed with Eagles players Dong Hyun Shin and Se Hyeon Yi. And of course there was the action on the ice as teams played multiple

games each day, plus all-star contests and skills competitions. The Nepean Raiders won the highest level championship out of area teams by capturing the minor peewee ‘AAA’ division crown, while the Stittsville Rams were best in the major atom ‘B’ event. “The organizers do a great job,” salutes Ottawa West Golden Knights coach Rob Vandenberg, whose minor peewee ‘A’ team played in one of two division finals that were decided in overtime. “It’s really well-run and it’s a highlight of the season every year.”

sive effort in a 2-1 semi-final victory over Rideau St. Lawrence. “I’m happy,” says Kanata player Ben Semiga, who collected close to 50 pins from other teams during the tournament. “It was a lot of fun.”

MINOR ATOM AAA CHAMPIONSHIP The 11-2 score in the championship game wasn’t the prettiest, but winning silver trophies when matched up against the Toronto Marlboros was an accomplishment nonetheless for the Kanata Blazers. “We asked them for one thing,” explains Mike Eastwood, whose team scored the first goal and was tied 1-1 against their powerhouse opponents after the first period. “We asked them to work as hard as they possibly could, and every boy in that dressing room worked as hard as they could every shift. “You can’t always control the outcome. The Marlies are one of the best teams in the province and in the country. They are the top of the top. We gave it everything we had and played with them for a period. “The way I look at it, coming from a smaller community like Kanata, getting a chance to play against the big boys, for us we were very fortunate.” Eastwood was also impressed that his team “battled and battled” to reach the final. Backed by goaltenders Gabe Arrigo and Tye Austin, the Blazers recorded three shutouts at the event over Troy Albany, Lambton and Assabet Valley, and also had a good defenR0021235045
