Constance Bay road waiting on developer New secondary access route still a priority in village plan LANDFILL


Waste Management holds its third workshop discussing design of new landfill.


TRASH TROUBLES Check out the second part of a Metroland Special Report on Trash Troubles.



The construction of a new road providing a second route into Constance Bay is only waiting for work to start on a new residential development near Buckham’s Bay, according to West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. The community’s village plan, which was created in 2006, calls for a secondary access route to Constance Bay, which must be funded and constructed by developers. City of Ottawa planning staff who are reviewing the community’s village plan said road construction will begin at the same time work starts on the adjacent residential development. It can’t start too soon, said El-Chantiry. “How can you have a community with only one entrance and one exit?� he asked. El-Chantiry said the new road will likely run from Shady Lane to Kilmaurs Side Road, near the traffic lights at Dunrobin Road, close to the new residential development area. The prospect of a new road was one of the items discussed during a review of the Constance Bay Community Plan held at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre on Saturday, Nov. 26. Dozens of residents attended the information session to hear the results of public feedback about the Constance Bay Community Plan, collected during a meeting held last spring. COMMUNITY PLAN, see 4

Kathy Craig will be the emcee for the Advent Singalong hosted by St. James Anglican Church in Carp on Dec. 7.

St. James to host Advent Singalong COURTNEY SYMONS

Bells will be ringing and carolers will be singing at an Advent Signalong hosted by St. James Anglican Church in Carp on Dec. 7. The old-fashioned Christmas concert will include poetry readings, an excerpt from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Caro”l, and the opportunity for community members to shout out their favourite Christmas carols for a group singalong. “At this time of year, everybody is getting ready for Christmas,” organizer Carol Bruce said. “This is one of those things that touches to the core of what Christmas is all about.” Bruce is a member of the Carp church, and also a physician about to depart on a medical expedition to Thailand and Nepal with a group called Medical Mercy Canada. Leaving on Jan.19 and returning on March 11, Bruce will see patients and visit schools and orphanages with a

team of medical professionals. While Bruce plans to pay her own way there, doctors are required to bring drugs with them to treat patients, and the Advent Singalong is a fundraiser to help her purchase pharmaceuticals for her trip. There is no admission fee to the event, but people are asked to give a goodwill donation towards Bruce’s trip. “Everyone is welcome,” Bruce said. “It’s not a particularly religious service; this is something for the whole community.” The event is based on a similar concert held at the church two years ago, and Bruce hopes to replicate its success. Performers will be dressed in costume, and some of the church’s youth will play music. “Were calling on the various talents of the people in our church,” Bruce said. The Dec. 7 event will be held at the St. James Anglican Church right next to the Carp Fairgrounds, from 7-8:30 p.m. “I’ve wanted to do this for a long time,” Bruce said.

The West Carleton Environmental Centre (WCEC) has proposed a layout for their new landfill that was evaluated based on multiple criteria alongside three other alternatives. Above is an artist’s rendering of the proposed new facility. “Right now, they (Waste Management) talk about diversion, but it’s a small part of their plan. The big part is the landfill. If they were to flip that around, then that would make everybody happy.” Waste Management project manager Tim Murphy and consultant Blair Shoniker from AECON, a construction company, explained the method they used to evaluate four different layout options for the new landfill proposed for the West Carleton Environmental Centre at the workshop on Nov. 23. Using a mathematical system evaluating pros and cons for each option, the second option called the “northern footprint” came out on top. This option would see construction of the environmental centre’s new landfill on the northern side of the existing capped landfill, between William Mooney Road and Carp Road. The new landfill would be 6.5 million cubic metres, with a height of 28 metres and a slope of 4:1; around 60 per cent of the size of the existing landfill. Various factors were considered in the evaluation process, including archaeology and cultural heritage, air quality, odour, noise, economics, land use and water quality. Community members were given the opportunity to ask Murphy and Shoniker questions, which ranged from logistical queries to why a fifth option – no landfill – wasn’t evaluated alongside the four layout options. Site manager Ross Wallace said that he was pleased to see new faces at some of the recent public consultations, and that he has been satisfied with the community turnout, but that there is always room for more people. “The more the merrier,” he said. “The more people who come out to ask the questions, the more they understand the need for this process. I’d much rather someone come out and ask me why instead of sitting in the background making comments without finding out the details.” Site manager Ross Wallace said that diversion will be an important part of the West Carleton Environmental Centre, and that the landfill is only one element of their proposal which also

includes recycling, a wildlife habitat, greenhouses and using gases from the landfill to create clean energy. The next step in the environmental assessment process involves a property evaluation followed by a fourth and fifth open house to take place in early 2012. No dates have been set yet, Wallace said. For more information about the West Carleton Environmental Centre, visit their website at


A member of an advisory committee overseeing the Carp landfill proposal is concerned about the lack of community involvement in the environmental assessment process for a new environmental centre in Carp. Waste Management held a third workshop on Nov. 23 to explain the desired layout for their proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre at their facility on Carp Road. Harold Moore, a member of the Carp Landfill Community Liaison Committee (CLCLC), was at the workshop but said he was disheartened by the low community turnout. “I’m finding there’s disengagement in the community,” he said. “Even when the environmental assessment began in January, there were only about 30 or 40 people showing up to the workshops, and that number has gone down. There’s just a fall off.” About 12 people attended the workshop on Nov. 23. Moore said that part of the problem was the technical jargon Waste Management used that he felt most community members couldn’t follow. “If an ordinary person gets intimidated by the information, they don’t want to get engaged,” he said. “But if you bring it down to their level, it’ll help.” Waste Management responded to this concern by introducing two technical sessions, where community members could delve into the nitty-gritty details of issues surrounding air quality and groundwater in two respective sessions held over the last couple of weeks. Although this is a step in the right direction, Moore said it might be too late. “It would have been nice back in the springtime,” he said. “It would have kept people engaged in the process.” Moore has lived in Carp for 26 years, and was present at the very first open house in 1986 for the Carp landfill that was recently capped. He also attended the first meetings for the West Carleton Environmental Centre’s terms of reference in 2006, because he said he didn’t want to see another landfill in Carp. “I feel like any new landfill is simply a disincentive for diversion,” he said. “As long as you keep giving them a hole in the ground, they’re going to keep throwing garbage in it.” While residential diversion is being improved by programs like the green, black and blue bin recycling programs paid for by the city, businesses have to seek out recycling outlets at their own expense. And as long as there is a cheaper option to throw it into a landfill, companies will keep doing so, Moore said. But an ideal solution for Moore and the CLCLC wouldn’t involve scrapping the entire landfill proposal – it would just involve shifting around the project’s priorities.

Christmas in West Carleton City reviews Constance Bay plan COMMUNITY PLAN, see 4


It’s time to deck the halls and ring in the holiday season! Here are some of the ways you can celebrate Christmas in West Carleton this December: CARP The 22nd annual Carp Christmas Market takes place on Friday, Dec. 2 from 3-8 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 3 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Carp Fairgrounds (3790 Carp Rd.). Around 70 of their regular Saturday vendors will be selling their Christmas goods. Admission and parking are free, but bring along non-perishable food items for the West Carleton Food Bank. On Dec. 7, the St. James Anglican Church next to the Carp Fairgrounds hosts an Advent Singalong for community members from 7-8:30 p.m. There is no admission fee, but the church will accept donations for a medical trip abroad. Carp’s Santa Claus Parade is coming to town on Dec. 10 beginning at noon. The Huntley Community Association is putting on the event, and the route begins at the Diefenbunker located at 3911 Carp Rd. and follows Carp Road to Juanita Street, to Langstaff Drive, turns left onto Donald B. Munro then back up Carp Rd. to end at the Diefenbunker. CONSTANCE BAY The Constance Bay Santa Claus Parade on Dec. 3 begins with a breakfast with Santa Claus at the Constance & Buckham’s Bay Community Association at 262 Len Purcell Dr. Breakfast will be served from 9-11 a.m. for $5 each. The parade begins around 1 p.m. around Baillie Avenue, and non-perishable food items will be collected on Santa’s float. After the parade, everyone can head back to the community centre for some hot chocolate and hot dogs. The bar will be open for refreshments. All proceeds from the breakfast and postparade fun will be donated to the West Carleton Food Bank. A Christmas bazaar will be hosted at the community centre on Dec. 3 also, beginning at 9 a.m. and running all day. Branch 616 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Constance Bay hosts a children’s Christmas party on Dec. 11 beginning at noon. All grown-ups and children are welcome. Adults are asked to bring a wrapped gift for their child(ren). The Sandhill Seniors will host their sixth annual sit-down Santa Claus Dinner on Dec. 17 at the Legion. Cocktails are at 5 p.m. and dinner begins at 6 p.m. with a visit from Santa to follow. Dinner costs $20 for non-members and $15 for members, and everyone is asked to bring a present for a gift exchange with a value of $10. CORKERY The Corkery Community Association and Station 84 of the Ottawa firefighters team up again this year for their annual tree sale. Community members can purchase trees each Saturday and Sunday from Dec. 3 -18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the West Carleton Works Garage at 2941 March Rd. between Bear Hill Road and Highway 417.

Santa Claus will be busy this season with stops all over West Carleton. Firefighters will also be selling trees at the Carp Christmas Market on Saturday. St. Michael’s Catholic School in Corkery hosts their annual outdoor Christmas concert on Dec. 15 from 5-7 p.m. complete with sleigh rides, a bonfire, singalongs, a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus, food and entertainment. The event will be hosted right outside the school at 1572 Corkery Rd.

A community design plan charts the future desired development of a village, addressing issues such as land use, transportation needs, servicing and parks and environment. At last spring’s meeting, residents came forward with a wide range of issues including: • Construction of a new residential park associated with the new residential area. • Access to the Constance Bay beach. • The location and perceived isolation of the community centre. • The need for hiking and recreational trails in Torbolton Forest. “Torbolton Forest, that comes up lots,” said Rose Kung, a city planner working on the review of the Constance Bay Community Plan, at the meeting. “We don’t deal with that issue.” A city forester is currently working on preparing a management plan for Torbolton Forest, and is seeking public comment, she said. Kung said the city is also looking into a land use issue in Constance Bay, with many lots exceeding the maximum size allowed by the city’s zoning regulations. Bob Dupuis, a Constance Bay resident, said he’s impatient for work to start on many of the ideas proposed in the community plan, which was approved nearly six years ago.

“We’ve been waiting for years and years,” he said, adding that the city’s community plan is a little light on details and needs a timeline. “I’d like a concrete timeline for when some of these things are going to be implemented,” he said. “It seems we’re always in a consultation mode.” Dupuis said he’d like to see the city move ahead with providing paved shoulders on some of the roads in Constance Bay, to make them safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Dan Moffatt, the sports director of the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association, said he’s also impatient for work to start on paved shoulders. Moffatt said there are a lot of good ideas in the plan. “It’s been five years since the plan came out – it’s a good one I guess,” he said. “Things are starting to get implemented, just maybe not as fast as we would like.” Kung said Constance Bay’s community plan is extensive and comprehensive. “It’s a great plan,” she told residents at the meeting. “What we want to hear from you today is, have we missed anything?” Anyone who would like to offer comments about the community plan can email The City of Ottawa is reviewing the community plans for its 26 villages and will present community feedback to council early next year.

DUNROBIN St. Paul’s Anglican Church located at 1118 Thomas A. Dolan Pkwy. will put on a Christmas bazaar, lunch and bake sale on Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event will include crafts, treasures, books, a silent auction, a white elephant sale and a lunch for $7.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - December 1 2011




New registry would both include paid lobbyists, community advocates LAURA MUELLER

Community associations, advocacy groups and average citizens are some of the people who would have to register as “lobbyists” under proposed sweeping municipal rules. In the draft version of the city’s new lobbyist registry, the only people who would be exempt from having to register as a lobbyist would be officials from other levels of government, or from other municipalities. The city’s new governance renewal subcommittee heard a report on the proposed registry during its first meeting on Nov. 18, but the committee won’t actually consider whether to approve the proposal until its Dec. 1 meeting. If the city goes ahead with the initiative, Ottawa would be only the second

Canadian municipality to set up a formal framework for reporting lobbying. Toronto is the only city that has something similar. The registry is the first of a series of initiatives Mayor Jim Watson promised during the election as a means to bring more “accountability and transparency” to city government. The lobbyist registry would be a “very important cultural change” at city hall, said deputy city clerk Leslie Donnelly. “You can’t stop bad things from happening,” Donnelly said. “But you can tell people who is influencing decisions.” The registry would require city council members, paid lobbyists and unpaid advocates to register all lobbying activities. Whether it’s a lobbyist paid to advocate in favour of a planned development, or a resident who wants a stop sign on his or her street, they would be seen as lobbyists under the registry (although it would distinguish between traditional lobbyists and community members). The proposed changes threw some

councillors for a loop. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt worried that some of his rural residents require his help when requesting land severances, and having to register as a lobbyist in order to do that would be an additional hindrance. In a ward with an abundance of community associations and politically active residents, Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said that type of activism might be discouraged if residents knew

“Ultimately, there will be 100 ways to get around the rule,” •Mayor Jim Watson

the topic of their meeting with the councillor would be made public. Others wondered how they would be able to separate lobbying from advice, and how they would determine a possible lobbyist’s connections. “You could hear from the same person three times in the same day, and how are you supposed to know whether that is lobbying?” said Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli. “Some people wear multiple hats.”

LOOPHOLE One major potential loophole to the registry was revealed during the Nov. 18 meeting. If a council member is the one to initiate a conversation, it wouldn’t be considered lobbying under the proposed guidelines, Donnelly said. That was in response to Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais, who asked if it would be considered lobbying if he phoned a developer to ask him to build a 20-storey building instead of 12 storeys. “Ultimately, there will be 100 ways to get around the rule,” said Watson, who heads the governance renewal subcommittee. “It’s about accountability. When in doubt – register,” the mayor added. Councillors, particularly Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, raised questions about the amount of their office staff ’s time it would take to enter lobbyists’ names and a log of each time they lobby the councillor. Donnelly said the amount of work it would add to each councillor’s office would be negligible, but she said setting up the lobbyist registry will necessitate an additional full-time staff member in the clerk’s office.

Carp Fish and Hunt Club to celebrate 65th anniversary





The Carp Fish and Hunt Club has stuck together since the early 1940s, and intends to celebrate its 65th annual week-long getaway in 2012. The group of Carp and Kinburn area men used to take the train to Barry’s Bay where the camp is located. They’ve seen many changes since those days. Many of the original members are gone. Even the landscape itself has shifted from brush and pasture with cattle drives to privately-owned lands with many more trees, homes and paved roads. But they’ve seen progress, too. From converting a former schoolhouse just west of Barry’s Bay, outside Algonquin Park, to welcoming new “guest” members. In the end, though, it’s been about buddies getting together for fall fun. “You go every year for the hunting and visiting,” said Don Johnston, who has lived in Arnprior since 1952. “But it’s really about the camaraderie, that’s what it’s all about.”

The founding members feature long-time West Carleton family names: Ira Cavanagh, Everett Armstrong, Chris Johnston, Herb Johnston, Gordon Mulligan, Ernie Johnston, Winston McGee, Alvin Cavanagh, Leslie Armstrong and Jack Anderson. After the first camp, the abandoned Bark Lake Schoolhouse on Skeeds Road and Highway 60, the group moved to the cottage at Bleskie’s Saw Mill. They had six steel bunks and mattresses (the least expensive ones that could be found) as luxury items. But that mattered little, since they were out hunting and fishing most days from sun up to sun down. Johnston says the hunting has changed much over the years: more private property means fewer places to go; moose and deer are still around, but partridge are scarce; ducks – not so much; lots of bear but a special licence is needed; lots of wolves too, which means few coyotes. Then the members built the current camp in 1950 on Parissien (Deer) Lake, about 15 kilometres this side of the famous Algonquin Park. Johnston still recalls the day the club lugged building supplies in an

The Carp Fish and Hunt Club celebrated another successful year in November. Looking back to 1948, the members were: back row, from the left, Leslie Armstrong (from Carp, agricultural feed business owner), Arthur Armstrong (Carp school student), Ernie Johnston (Carp veterinarian), Herb Johnston (Carp cattle drover), Winston McGee (Huntley Centre dairy farmer), Christie Johnston (barber, Kinburn insurance salesman), Ira Cavanagh (Carp dairy and silver fox farmer), Alvin Cavanagh (Carp dentist); front row, from the left, Willard Crabb (guest from Washington, D.C., son-in-law of Ira Cavanagh), Everett Armstrong (Carp agricultural feed business owner), Gordon Mulligan (Huntley Centre, plumber, chicken farmer and “jack of all trades”), Jack Anderson (Antrim general store owner) and 16-year-old Don Johnston (Antrim, school student). old half-ton from A.J. Campbell Lumber in Arnprior. Things didn’t happen quickly then, but the men worked hard and ‘got ’er done’ as they say in the Valley. Life did soften for them. In 1960, the hydro line was built and modernization set in. A bathroom and shower was added in 1972. Johnston is the last member still going to the club. The only other still alive from the early years is Arthur Armstrong, who until failing health prevented him from doing so – visited the camp until two years ago. New members include Marshall Riggs, Merritt McGee, Arthur Armstrong, Don Johnston (who as a teenager was there in the beginning, but not as a member), Keith Barr, James Grant, and Ralph Paul. Wilbert Paul, a recent past president of the Carp Agriculture Society, was a guest member again this year. He considers himself fortunate to be part of the week-long adventure. “It’s great to be part of a hunting club that’s been around that long,” Paul said. “Just to listen to the stories that go around the camp. There’s a lot of history with these old guys.” Many others have felt just as fortunate, as an excerpt from a history of the club reveals: “Initially, the focus

of the club was for members to hunt and fish. The hospitality and beauty of the area soon attracted the members’ families to spend vacation and leisure time at the camp and the camp is now being used all year long. “Countless invited guests have hunted, fished and vacationed with members of The Carp Fish and Hunt Club. Over the past 60 years the atmosphere has never changed. Relax and enjoy!”

Nature’s Way Snowy owls appear in our area only when lemmings are low in number. This appears to be one of those years as a number of Snowy Owls have been recently reported in southern Ontario. Just last weekend I was delighted to see at one time four snowy owls sitting on High Bluff Island, which resides in Lake Ontario off Owen Point in Presqu’ile Provincial Park. Two of the owls were very white, a third had some brown markings on its breast, and the fourth had such a dark belly and white face that at first I thought I was looking at a rough-legged hawk. That darkness made that bird a juvenile female, while the second darkest was possibly an adult female or young male. OWL on page 9

Some of nature’s phenomena are easy to predict: deciduous trees drop their leaves before winter snows arrive and carpets of colourful flowers liven summer meadows. Other phenomena are much more difficult to forecast due to their irregular nature. The arrival of non-resident owls is one of those. Every decade or so great gray owls undergo a mass movement from the boreal forest to our region. In the winter of 2004-05, these magnificent birds were present in incredible numbers; on one of my Carleton University ornithology outings, we encountered 23 in a mere three hours. Snowy owls also irregularly appear in our area. It has been quite a few years since our last “big” winter for snowies and I am going to boldly predict that this will be one of them. Snowy owls are the largest and most northern of our owls, nesting from north of the treeline to the edge of the polar seas. Although this species has not nested in Ontario, it has so near Churchill, Manitoba. Lemmings are the main food, with as many as 1,600 consumed in one year!


Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 34 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of Nov. 11 to 17.. From these calls for service the following is a partial breakdown of incidents by community: Carp business: two theft. Carp village: one theft. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the highway traffic laws, responding to false 911 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa fire, paramedics and bylaw services.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - December 1 2011


Right idea, wrong target


n a bid to increase transparency at city hall, one worries if Ottawa will actually end up stifling democracy. A proposed lobbyist registry is ruffling some feathers at city hall, but perhaps community advocates should be the ones with their guard up. This shouldn’t be the reaction to a policy meant to tell us who is influencing decisions at city hall, but in trying to come up with a comprehensive way to track who is lobbying political decision makers, the city is on its way to crafting a draconian version of a lobbyist registry that could discourage regular citizens from calling up their councillor about a neighbourhood issue. The registry would distinguish between different types of lobbyists, paid and unpaid, but all would be required to list their names. Councillors would have to record each contact with those designated as lobbyists, whether it’s a casual curbside conversation about snowplowing or a business lunch about an upcoming development application. That distinction makes Ottawa’s proposed registry “the most sweeping in the country” according to the Lobbying Law Bulletin. “It is no exaggeration to say that, if adopted in its current form, the bylaw would alter the role of citizen engagement and

neighbourhood activism in Ottawa’s democratic, political process,” writes Guy Giorno, whose study on the topic is cited in the City of Ottawa report recommending the lobbyist registry. In other jurisdictions, “lobbying” is defined as a paid relationship. Where there is money, there is influence, and those who are paid to influence decision makers are deemed “lobbyists.” Not so in Ottawa, if this registry is adopted. In a move that’s “radically different” from any other jurisdiction, Giorno writes, volunteers working on behalf of non-profit organizations and community groups would also be considered lobbyists. While communities should be celebrating a victory in government openness, they may instead be finding ways to cope with the additional complexities of revealing how often they speak to their councillor, and about which topics. The registry proposal goes as far as preventing former city employees from volunteering with a community group, if part of their role as a volunteer would include making representations to an elected official. Mayor Jim Watson has the right idea: Transparency should be paramount. But not at the expense of engaged, grassroots community members.


Tension and high drama on the number 87


retired guy’s life needs some excitement now and then, which is why I decided to take a ride on a city bus. The bus has been the main topic of conversation in the newspapers and on the radio and TV. If you were looking for drama, the bus was the place to find it. When I worked downtown, I used to take the bus all the time. This was a few years ago, before there started to be drama and tension on the bus. The way I remember it, I got on the bus in the morning, usually got a seat after the high school kids got off, read the paper for awhile, got off at my stop and walked the rest of the way to work. It was decidedly lacking in drama. The bus drivers were nice, although none of them sang. The passengers behaved themselves. Occasionally someone would have his headphones turned up too high so that a tinny whine leaked out. But that was it. I figured the real drama was happening in the cars, from what I heard from my colleagues who drove to work. They had tales of delays, traffic jams, crazy drivers on the Queensway, road rage and such. My time on the bus couldn’t com-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town pete with that. Nothing much happened. The same thing going home. I might have to wait a bit, but that wasn’t too dramatic. I might have to stand for awhile, but there were worse things in life. The bus might take half an hour instead of 20 minutes if the traffic was bad but I had a book to read. The thing I liked best was that I arrived home in a decent frame of mind, unlike the car drivers, who had those veins in their necks bulging from trying to keep from screaming. Obviously, from reading all the reports, times had changed. The bus had become a combination of Blackboard Jungle and Saturday at the Opera. I had to see it. But something went horribly wrong.

First, the bus arrived on time, which wasn’t supposed to happen. Then the bus driver was friendly. Then there were no unruly passengers on board. Then the bus driver didn’t sing. Nor did he talk on a cell phone. It was too quiet, as they say in the movies, just before it gets noisy. Quiet was OK once I got used to it. I had a book to read. The bus hopped onto the Transitway and got downtown in a hurry. Getting across downtown was another matter, but nobody on the bus seemed to be impatient about it. No passengers yelled at the driver or vice versa. The bus got to the Rideau Centre and I got off, thinking: “That was weird.” Well, maybe there would be some drama on the ride back. I had lunch downtown, did a little browsing for this and that and then went to wait with lots of other people for the bus. Several pulled up, none of them mine, which was OK because I wanted to see if any drivers would walk off and refuse to go any farther. None did. Hmmm. Soon my bus arrived. I got on. The driver was friendly. I got a place to sit and read my book. The passengers minded their own business. The auto-

mated announcing of the stops went well. The driver didn’t sing, nor did the passengers. I looked around for vigilantes with cell phone cameras but didn’t see any. Fortunately there was a fair amount of drama in the book I was reading because there wasn’t any on the bus. It didn’t arrive late, as far as I can tell. The passengers got off without insulting the driver. What to make of this experience? Maybe it was atypical. Or maybe it wasn’t. Just to make sure, I think I’ll try again. Even without drama, it sure beats paying for parking.

We have kept Dennis the drover (not driver but drover; a driver just drives while Dennis does much more – it’s a rodeo out there sometimes folks) busy this past week. First we had him come and pick up our three male bull calves. You could hear the truck and metal trailer clanging and banging around the corner of our dirt road well before you could see it coming up the hill. The cattle were anxious to get out of the pen that the Farmer had successfully lured and locked them into the night before. I unhooked the electric fence wire (which I had already switched off), unlatched the front gate and swung it open for Dennis to drive through. With Dennis’ help, the Farmer let the female cows out. They were very happy to be free, and headed straight to the feeder to see if the hay was any different from the stuff they had been eating on the inside. I stood out of the way as Dennis ushered the bulls into the back of the truck. They obediently hopped aboard without any bait. When the metal doors swung shut, however, they began to bawl a little. This got their mothers’ attention. I went over and consoled my cows with kind words and a bucket of grain as the big white truck and trailer took their babies away. This morning, the cows all stopped

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife chewing and stood frozen as they heard the sound of the trailer rounding the corner again. Maybe they thought their bulls were returning, or maybe they thought they were the next to be loaded aboard. “Young Angus is home, girls!” I said, cheerfully. Mocha turned her head quickly and looked at me, eyes wide. I opened the gate and the trailer backed into the opening. Dennis stepped down from the truck, walked around back and swung the doors open. “You’re home, buddy,” he said softly to the black bull, who was significantly bigger than the last time I saw him. I swear he grew another 25 per cent in the short time he was gone. We rented Angus out to one farmer in the spring, another in the summer and then he was home for just a day before he was rented out again for the fall. Some of his keepers fed him apples, while others fed him grain. His coat has a glossy sheen and he is far from the small calf that we first met a year and a half

Owls use camouflage

Our barn has a revolving door ago. I stood between two large trees as the bull was released into the yard. Immediately he snorted, pawed the ground and then curled back his upper lip and sniffed the air. The girls came over to greet him, and he walked with them over to the pasture field, as if reacquainting himself with the property. Next week we will start taking some of our bigger lambs to market. I know which one I want to say goodbye to first. He is a big Suffolk lamb, with a black face and white body. He used to jump in the feeders as soon as we filled them with hay. Not only will this soil the hay but the stupid lamb gets stuck in the feeder and it’s very difficult to get him out. We put him in with Rambo and his mate Gretel and he jumped out of that pen too. The Farmer put fences up over the feeders so he couldn’t jump into them anymore. The next day I found him on the highest stacked bale. I guess he decided to skip the feeder and go to the source. Philip has been released to mate as many ewes as he can. He is wearing a red crayon block in a halter on his chest. I can see that he has marked more than half of the herd so far. His babies will be born in early April. The population is ever-changing on the farm.

OWLS from page 7 Adult males are usually pure white while adult females bear some brown markings on the breast and back. Young birds bear more dark markings, with young females being the darkest of all. Thus, an owl’s age is roughly revealed by its plumage. Snowy owls are usually seen sitting atop trees or fence posts. They also perch on the ground, but if there is snow, they blend in extremely well, making it difficult to see them. Although the white feathers offer camouflage, they more importantly provide warmth, which is essential as the owls frequent open, wind-dominated habitats. Snowy owls have yellow eyes, which are very small for the size of the birds. That is because they are primarily dayhunters, with less need for the oversized eyes found in purely nocturnal owls such as boreals. With snow not yet covering the fields, it is an excellent time to look for snowy owls. If you spot a one locally, be sure to let me know as the Pakenham-Arnprior Boxing Day bird count is fast approaching. If my forecast for a snowy owl irruption is correct, would that not make nature’s unpredictable nature somewhat predictable? The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is

West-end quilters donate to shelter BLAIR EDWARDS

Kozy Comforters is once again stitching together a merry Christmas for abused women and their children staying at the Chrysalis House women’s shelter. Every year the women’s group creates a colourful collection of pillows and quilts to donate to families at the women’s shelter. “We all know someone who has had to leave an abusive situation,” said Shirley YakabuskiMilligan, a long-time member of Kozy Comforters. “The ladies love making the children’s quilts.” Kozy Comforters, a group of women who make quilts for people fighting cancer, was founded in 2003, the year before the Chrysalis House opened in Kanata. “There’s 24 beds, we made the commitment to cover each bed with a quilt,” said YakabuskiMilligan. This year, 15 of the group’s women have created 17 quilts

and 16 pillowcases for the women and children staying at Chrysalis House. “We just do something so they can give something to the children at Christmas time,” said Yakabuski-Milligan. Members of Kozy Comforters, who meet every Monday at the Kanata Legion, start the work at the Legion branch and finish the work in their homes. The quilts and pillowcases are a welcome gift, said Carly McMaster, a women’s advocate at the Chrysalis House. “It’s kind of perfect,” she said. “because it is Christmas and because we can use them as gifts – they’re beautiful quilts. They’re very cozy and warm.” The Chrysalis House is now accepting donations for the Christmas season, including: women’s, children and babies clothing, hygiene products, new toys, DVDs, gift cards and presents suited for adult women. Donations can be made by calling 613-591-5991, ext. 229. For more information visit the website:

Seniors summit discusses needs of aging population

Around 50 people turned out to the Kanata Seniors Council’s Western Ottawa Seniors Summit to discuss what’s needed for an aging population on Friday, Nov. 25. Residents from across the west end, including those from Kanata, Stittsville, Carp, West Carleton, Richmond and Nepean, attended the meeting held at the Kanata Recreation Complex. “We had quite a diverse group,” said Kay Dubie, president of the Kanata Seniors Council. “We were very pleased with (the turnout).” The all-day event centered on the City of Ottawa’s consultation survey to help develop an Older Adult Plan. The plan aims to determine what is needed for an aging population and how best to implement those services. “The strongest comments were for transportation: the lack of it on the weekends, the lack of it to the rural areas, the changes to the routes that aren’t convenient to seniors,” said Dubie. “Housing was the second strongest one, looking for affordable senior housing.” Attendees were broken off into small working groups to discuss eight categories of services provided by the city. The working groups discussed the positives and negatives relating to: • Transportation. • Housing. • Outdoor spaces and public buildings. • Public safety and security. • Social participation. • Communication and information. • Civic participation and employment. • Community support and health services. “When people are discussing things in a group, things get raised that wouldn’t otherwise,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “I’m hoping a lot of ideas will come out of this.” TRANSPORTATION NEEDED Adele Muldoon, a Dunrobin resident, said bus service within the west end needs to be addressed. Transferring from one bus to another can be difficult for those with mobility problems. “I think it’s getting around the community that’s the biggest problem,” she said. Other attendees said they would like to see buses in the rural areas of the west end. Some suggested OC Transpo partner with private contractors to create access, said Dubie. However, it wasn’t all negative

comments for OC Transpo. Many attendees said they were pleased with the free bus service for seniors and regularly took advantage of the free rides. “They like the free bus service,” said Dubie. Access to Para Transpo was a big issue for those with limited mobility and continually came up in the working groups. Catherine Gardner, who lives in Bells Corners and uses a wheelchair, said she’s not satisfied with the Para Transpo service. She said it’s often easier to get on an OC Transpo bus, if there’s room, than to schedule a pick up from Para Transpo. “It could be an hour wait,” she said. If her plans change on short notice, such as a cancelled meeting, Gardner said she could be stuck waiting for hours until her scheduled pick up time. She added that an interchangeable transit pass for both OC Transpo and Para Transpo would be beneficial to those who use both services. Many others said the fees were too high for Para Transpo, said Dubie. “They suggest a Para (Transpo) free day for seniors,” she said. Others suggested having “hub” locations for pick up and drop offs, such as at malls. Transit riders could take a regular bus to a central location where Para Transpo would then pick them up to take them home, said Dubie. Other suggestions raised at the summit included: • Making traffic walk signal times longer. • Making the print larger on street signs. • Encouraging developers to build more bungalows. • Offering more subsidized housing. • Creating “senior villages” with houses, walking areas and access to transportation. • Creating a directory of services in the area, including recreation, social programs, learning opportunities and more. • Providing more services available for those with a low or fixed income. • Providing wheelchair accessible parks and sidewalks. • Providing more programs for the Chinese population available in their mother-tongue. Dubie added it wasn’t all negative comments the council received. She said many attendees said the city’s recreation facilities are “excellent,” they enjoy the walking paths, they feel safe in the city, and they like the count down system on walk lights. “The city’s done something right,” said Dubie with a laugh.

There are around 20,000 seniors in west Ottawa, said Dubie. The number of seniors in the city is set to double in the next 20 years. By 2031, there will be more seniors than youth under age 15 for the first time ever, and the 65plus crowd will make up 22 per cent of the city’s population. “Ottawa is the second highest destination for seniors to retire,” said Wilkinson, with Victoria, BC being the first. “We have a lot of seniors’ residences here. The Kanata Seniors Centre has more than 1,000 members.” City council will vote on the completed plan next year, and funding pressures that come from the plan would be addressed in the budget in future years.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - December 1 2011


The hefty cost of landfills SECOND IN A THREE-PART SERIES BY DON CAMPBELL, THANA DHARMARAJAH NEVIL HUNT AND LAURA MUELLER Garbage in Ontario is a mess. Durham and York are building a controversial incinerator to burn 140,000 tonnes of garbage a year. On Nov. 7, the provincial Ministry of the Environment gave the go-ahead for Orgaworld — the facility that processes Ottawa’s organic waste — to accept diapers, dog waste and compostable plastic bags but the City of Ottawa has yet to give the green light. Simcoe County — a community that attracts vacationers and retirees — faces a dire situation with less than six years of life left for three of its four landfills. Communities are flailing as they try to manage waste within their own borders. Some are already sending garbage out of town. Some are still working on setting waste diversion targets. Others are revising them. And some like the Region of Waterloo don’t have waste diversion targets at all. At least six communities surveyed by Metroland (for this Special Report on provincewide Trash Troubles) have landfills that will run out of space within 10 years. The mountains of trash that Ontarians are throwing into the garbage instead of their blue boxes are forcing other communities to try to find more space in their already bulging landfills. But the Metroland report shows new landfills are difficult to build because government of Ontario approvals required to create new facilities are hard to get, lengthy and costly. “You can spend six, seven, eight years preparing and not get an approval at the end of the day,” said Adam Chamberlain, a Toronto environmental lawyer. “Approving a landfill in Ontario is not for the faint of heart.” In fact, the Ministry of Environment hasn’t approved a single new landfill site since 1999. During that time 147 small landfills have closed, leaving Ontario with 958 existing active landfills. But many of those are small and not classified as capable of taking on a major municipality’s trash.

About 85 per cent of Ontario’s waste goes to only 32 Ontario landfills classified by the ministry as “large.” The main reason trash is creating problems is that municipal landfills are filling up with garbage that should be recycled or reused, including cardboard, plastic bottles, milk cartons and paper. The biggest offender is plastic. A report by Stewardship Ontario shows that about 176,500 tonnes of plastics — including 30,906 tonnes of plastic bottles — were chucked into the garbage instead of the recycling box in 2009, the last year for which provincewide figures are available. That means three-quarters of all that plastic — including 44 per cent of plastic bottles — ends up in landfills. Another culprit is paper packaging, the cardboard boxes and milk and juice containers that could be recycled as well. About 34 per cent of that material, or 122,396 tonnes, ends up in landfills too. One Ontario landfill operator, Bob Beacock, regularly spots these recyclable items as they tumble out of the garbage trucks at the Brock site, east of Toronto. But he only has time to rescue the odd scrap metal or tire. “We can’t just get out of the machine and start picking out pop cans,” the Brock site operator said. “You just know you’d be here 16 hours a day. That’s the public’s obligation.” Like most municipalities, Ottawa is trying to send less trash to landfills. The key is diverting waste to other places – recycling and composting – and that requires residents’ involvement. Reducing the use of landfills can save taxpayers money because new landfills come with hefty costs. It’s up to cities and towns to convince residents that the cost-savings are worth the effort of recycling or composting, or that their efforts can have a positive impact on the environment. “Do we do it to save money on our taxes or do we do it because it’s the right thing to do?” asks Marie McRae, an Ottawa city councillor and chair of the city’s environment committee. McRae said the Trail Road landfill – which takes Ottawa residents’ solid waste – will be full at current rates by 2035. Use of the black, blue and green bins could extend that by years or

even decades. Starting in November 2012, Ottawa residents will see a change in pickups: • Green bin every week. • Black and blue bins on alternate weeks. • Other solid waste once every two weeks, although people can request weekly pickup in certain circumstances, usually when the home is producing diapers. McRae estimates the city and its taxpayers will save $9 million annually by going to biweekly garbage pick-up. She said biweekly garbage collection will trigger greater use of the green bin because it will offer residents a way to dispose of “yucky stuff ” every week.

“Not everyone will participate,” she said, “and we expect the people who are recycling and composting now are likely to do it more.” Marilyn Journeaux, the city’s manager of solid waste services, said the best case scenario would see residents reduce the current solid waste going into the Trail Road landfill; saving tax money and helping the environment at the same time. Today, Ottawa residents dump 200,000 tons of solid waste into the landfill. Journeaux said that number could be greatly reduced by sending 100,000 tons annually to Plasco for gasification, with another chunk sent to Orgaworld for composting. The city’s contract with Orgaworld costs taxpayers $7 million

annually. While the contract allows the city to send 80,000 tons of organic waste for composting, last year residents only sent 55,000 tons for composting. Residents will need to have a clear understanding of what can go in the green bin when the city goes to biweekly garbage pickup. The city’s website can tell you which items go in which bin, and McRae said homes with children will have another source of information. “There are bins in the schools and the kids are the ones who know which bin to use,” she said. Almost anything can be composted or recycled today, but there is still some confusion. McRae said grocery store

Carp yoga studio hosts first teaching training program COURTNEY SYMONS

46 Pine Grove Rd., Arnprior • 613-623-4410

Yoga enthusiasts no longer have to head into the city to learn to teach the exercises. Carp’s Yoga and Tea Studio is offering the first teacher training program ever to hit West Carleton. Owner and director Nina Sidhu along with a team of trainers will lead a 250hour program with classes one weekend per month from January until June, including a one-week yoga retreat to Wolfe Island near Kingston. “I know people who have looked at programs where you go away to India or Mexico for a month for training,” Sidhu said. “But usually that’s not realistic for people with families.” The program is open to people of all skill levels and ages. No prior experience is required. At the end of the program, participants will be certified by the International Yoga Alliance, the governing body that regulates global training standards. Yoga and Tea teaches Kundalini Yoga, considered to be one of the purer forms of the craft. Sidhu said that while many contemporary yoga studios modernize their moves, Kundalini has seen little change from one generation to the next. “The classes we teach and the poses we do are similar to how it’s been practiced over the past 100 years,” Sidhu said. Kundalini is also known for its stressreducing abilities. “A lot of times people think that the main benefit of yoga is flexibility,” Sidhu said. “But the real reason people feel great after class is because we focus on breathing, which is the trigger to help our bodies function properly. It changes the body’s stress response.” Another stress-reducer is the location of the yoga studio: a four-hectare lot on Donald B. Munro Drive. “We can practice with our windows open and hear the birds in the day and the crickets at night instead of sirens,” she said, comparing her rural studio to one in the city. Sidhu used to work as an engineer at Alcatel-Lucent, and began training for yoga and then teaching one night a week at the Huntley Community Centre in Carp. After beginning a family, Sidhu realized she wanted to increase the benefits she was seeing in her life from yoga. “I saw people around me responding to the positive changes I was making,” she said. Three years ago, she took the plunge and opened up her own studio in Carp. Yoga and Tea offers over 20 classes a week, as well as personal consultations, house visits, corporate yoga and children’s programs. The “tea” element comes from the complimentary tea and cookies served after every yoga class. Their in-house blend of chai tea is traditional to the Kundalini practice of yoga. Sidhu said the tea adds an element of social interaction into the class that oth-

I want to talk to you. I want to learn your first name!’” Now that Sidhu has her own studio, she makes a point of ensuring that there is a social element to her classes, and she will pass this on in the teacher training program, she said. From January to June, the studio will host classes on Friday evening, all day Saturday and all day Sunday on one weekend per month. Students will receive lectures and guest speakers, watch DVDs and practice yoga throughout the program. “It’s quite intensive, but then you have the rest of the month to read through the new material, practice at home, and think of questions for the next session,” Sidhu said. While graduates from the program will be certified to instruct, Sidhu said that opening a studio right away would be a bit of a leap. Instead, graduates should practice teaching out of their home or working at an existing studio to get a feel for their teaching style, she said. Sidhu will host an open house on Dec. 18 from 2-4 p.m. at the Yoga and Tea Studio (211 Donald B. Munro Dr.) about the upcoming teacher training program. An information brochure is also listed on their website at, or you can call 613-304-6320. The registration deadline is Dec. 31. A minimum of 10 and a maximum of 25 people will be admitted into the program.

to use for firefighting equipment. “The more we sell, the more we get to give back to our community,” Jollez said. Purchasing a tree also offers community members the opportunity to meet their local firefighters. “They are like local heroes around here,” Jollez said of the Station 84 firefighters. “They are really involved in our community.” Jollez said that picking out a local Christmas tree is a great way for families to get together and celebrate the season. “It’s a classic tradition,” she said. “And come on, the smell. You can’t beat it,” she reiterated. To find out more about the CCA or their Christmas tree sale, call 613-831-4474.

Have you read your newspaper today? connecting your communities

As Christmas approaches, the decision looms: Real or fake tree? Many community members may have a fake tree stored in their rafters, but the Corkery Community Association (CCA) and the Station 84 Ottawa firefighters are about to launch their annual Christmas tree sale to promote the real deal. Organizer Katia Jollez said there is one thing a real tree has that a fake does not. “They smell so good,” she said. “You can’t fake that.” Each year, the CCA teams up with local volunteer firefighters to sell local Douglas firs and spruce trees ranging from six to 10 feet tall, costing between $40 to $50. Community members can purchase trees every Saturday and Sunday from Dec. 3-18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the West Carleton Works Garage at 2941 March Rd. between Bear Hill Road and Highway 417. Firefighters will also sell trees at the Carp Christmas Market on Dec. 2 from 3 to 8 p.m. and on Dec. 3 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Carp Fairgrounds. Half the money raised from the sale will go towards the community association to spend on things like events, play groups for moms and activities for seniors. The rest will go to station

Now there’s one more reason to head to the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre. The Fitzroy Harbour Community Association just finished constructing a 4.5 metre long deck along the front of the community centre on Clifford Campbell Street. Construction began in September and was paid for with money raised by the community centre through various fundraising efforts. The community association has applied for a liquor license, and hopes to be fully licensed to serve alcohol by summer of 2012. Karen Taylor, president of the community association, said that once the warm weather returns, bistro tables and umbrellas will be placed on the deck for Harbourites to enjoy. “People will be able to enjoy watching ball games, and Harbour Days, and all the things that happen in Fitzroy Harbour,” Taylor said. The deck won’t be used much this winter, but will be a boon to the community centre all summer long and will also be a good incentive to rent the hall for events like weddings, Taylor said. “I’m pleased with the results,” she said. “Very, very pleased.” Next up for the FHCA is constructing a permanent picnic shelter next to the community centre. Construction is set to begin in spring, and Taylor said she hopes to have it completed for next summer.

Annual fundraiser looking for public support JESSICA CUNHA

A seniors’ care organization is asking residents to help bring Christmas cheer to older adults who have no family. The Home Instead Senior Care establishment is hosting the fifth annual Be a Santa to a Senior fundraiser, which provides gifts to seniors in Kanata and around the city who wouldn’t normally receive any presents during the holidays. “Christmas is all about family and children. There are a lot of seniors out there who feel alone and forgotten at Christmas. It’s a way of making them feel like someone does care about them,” said Lesley Sullivan, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office located in Kanata. “We’re looking for the public to help out.” This year, the number of requested gifts has grown with

Students from Kars Public School helped wrap the 600 gifts collected last year for the Be a Santa to a Senior program run by the Home Instead Senior Care organization. This year, the fundraiser is hoping to bring in 700 presents. 700 people on the list. Last year, the fundraiser provided 600 presents to isolated seniors. “It’s taken off like crazy,” said Sullivan. “It just shows how many seniors are out there

requiring these gifts.” Home Instead Senior Care partners with local charities and agencies – including Meals on Wheels, Friends of Hospice Ottawa, The Good Companions

and many community resource centres – to identify isolated seniors, living either in their own homes or in retirement residences, who require some holiday happiness. Last year, Meals on Wheels requested around 110 presents, said Sullivan. This year the charity is asking for 200 gifts. “All the gifts are going to be delivered on Christmas day with Christmas dinner,” she said. “Although we never know who the gifts have gone to, we do receive many emails and letters from the participating organizations with stories about the recipients’ reactions to the gifts, as well as their thanks.” Home Instead has set up Christmas trees in the Carlingwood Shopping Centre food court and at three Shoppers Home Health Care stores (located at 420 Hazeldean Rd., Kanata; Place D’Orleans; and Westgate Shopping Centre). People can choose a tag with a senior’s name and gift idea from the tree, buy the gift and put it unwrapped under the tree, with the tag attached. “We collect the gifts, we wrap them and deliver them to the

agency that provided the name and they deliver them to the clients,” said Sullivan. Those who receive presents aren’t necessarily financiallyneedy, said Sullivan, adding what they need is emotional support. “We know of older adults who have no one during this festive season and that makes for a very sad and lonely time…it’s important to reach out to isolated older adults during this special time of the year.” Home Instead will host a gift wrapping party on Dec. 19 from 1 to 4 p.m. at its location at 555 Legget Dr., Suite 121, and is looking for volunteers to help prep the presents. For more information and to volunteer, contact Sullivan at 613-599-6906 or visit the websites www.homeinsteadottawa. ca and www.beasantatoasenior. com. The Kanata Home Instead Senior Care has handed out over 2,000 presents since it started the Be a Santa to a Senior program five years ago. Over 1.2 million gifts have been collected over six years at all the franchise offices.

Galetta CA needs vice-president, secretary COURTNEY SYMONS

The Galetta Community Association (GCA) is looking for two new executive members after their annual general meeting on Nov. 28. Jenn Spratt and Dave Jefferies were re-elected as president and treasurer respectively, but vice-president Debbie Elliott and secretary Lana Dean declined their re-nominations. No one at the meeting accepted the vacant positions, and the GCA tabled the decision until further notice. No prior experience is required, Spratt said, and community members interested in the vice-president or secretary position should contact the GCA at 613-623-0113. Committee members set a date for their second annual Christmas Cookie Exchange, which will take place on Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. at 119 Darwin St. Participants should bring 40 cookies (three

dozen to exchange and four to sample) and photocopies of their recipe so that they can trade cookies and recipes with others. The community centre’s outdoor hockey rink will open when weather allows, and a monitor will be on site to supervise from 6-10 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Skaters are still permitted on the rink outside of those hours, but they will be without supervision. There will be no canteen this year at the skate shack, members decided, and skaters are encouraged to bring their own snacks and drinks to the rink. Committee members also voted to purchase a new aerator for the outdoor lawn bowling lanes at the community centre to replace the one that broke down this summer. The GCA meets on the last Monday of each month at the Galetta Community Centre.

Condors hockey spreads its wings across the city JESSICA CUNHA

The Capital City Condors have expanded. Now in its fourth year, the hockey team, which caters to youth with intellectual and physical disabilities, has grown to include a west team in Kanata and an east team in Rockland – and president Jim Perkins said they’re already looking for more ice in the city. With 39 players on the west team and 35 players on the east team, there are already at least 20 youths on the waiting list, said Perkins. “The issue is going to be ice again,” he said. “Ideally, our goal is to expand again. “We envision four teams eventually.”

He said the Condors are looking at potentially expanding to Barrhaven or south Ottawa, as well as Gatineau sometime in the future. “We have people registering when their kids are three years old to make sure they have a spot,” said Perkins.

and when they heard about the Condors it turned out to be a great fit. “The students help volunteer every week,” said Perkins. With two Ottawa Condor teams, the hockey players now have a chance to face off once a month. The friendly games will alternate between the Rock-

land rink and the Jack Charron Arena in Glen Cairn where the west team has its home base. The Condors also get sporadic ice time in Carp. CONDORS, see 23 “Now they get to play,” said Perkins, adding before it was hard to set up game

NEW TEAM The new Rockland Condors team has a home base at the Canadian International Hockey Academy, a private hockey boarding school in the east end of the city. “We were obviously really fortunate to have met up with them,” said Perkins. “(The kids) love it.” The school was looking for ways to volunteer in the community, he said,

“Now they get to play,” said Perkins, adding before it was hard to set up game days. “This way they’ll get a game every month.” The east team will play in red jerseys, while the west team’s colour is black. “It’s more than just a hockey team,” said Perkins. “It’s a community.” The players look forward to hockey every week, he said, with many getting their gear laid out the night before. “For them to be part of a team it builds their self-esteem, their moral,” said Perkins. He said a number of the players have developed in terms of broadening their personalities and growing their social-interaction skills.

“I think we’re seeing some of the longterm benefits.” Perkins said the teams are still looking for more volunteers for one hour a week on Saturdays with either the west or east team. RINK DREAMS Perkins said eventually he’d like to see a complex built with the purpose of serving those with physical and mental disabilities. “Our dream now is to put up a complex,” he said. The Condors have taken off in the four years since the team’s inception; although it caters to youth, there are a number of young adults on the team who started in their teens.


“We need a couple different levels of adult hockey,” said Perkins, in order to best serve those who play. He said he’d also like to see a place where people could play sledge hockey, which allows those with physical disabilities to play the sport on a sled. “If we ever had our dream (of a complex) we’d want two ice surfaces,” he said – one for ice hockey and one for sledge hockey. Eventually, Perkins said he’d like to see a partnership with the Soldier On program, which helps ill or injured Canadian Forces personnel to fully and actively participate in physical fitness. “So that’s kind of our dream right now,” said Perkins. “It just keeps growing.” For more information on the Capital City Condors, visit

CITY OF OTTAWA Did you know that working smoke alarms can cut your chances of dying in a fire by 50 per cent? In Ontario, having working smoke alarms is not only a good idea — it’s the law. Ottawa fire services recommends you install a smoke alarm on every level of your home, and outside your sleeping areas. Test your smoke alarms every month and change the batteries twice a year when you change your clocks. A working smoke alarm and a home fire escape plan will significantly increase your chances of surviving a fire.

Winterizing your vehicle can save cold cash SPECIAL TO THE REVIEW Here are some recommended steps for winterizing your vehicle: • Clean, flush and put new antifreeze in the cooling system. As a general rule of thumb, this should be done every two years. • Make sure heaters, defrosters and wipers work properly. Consider winter wiper blades and use cold weather washer fluid. As a general rule, wiper blades should be replaced every six months. • Have the battery and charging system checked for optimum performance. Cold weather is hard on batteries. • Check the tire tread depth and tire pressure. If snow and ice are a problem in your area, consider special tires designed


to grip slick roads. During winter, tire pressure should be checked weekly. • Be diligent about changing the oil and filter at recommended intervals. Dirty oil can spell trouble in winter. Consider changing to a “winter weight” oil if you live in a cold climate. Have your technician check the fuel, air and transmission filters at the same time. • If you’re due for a tune-up, have it done before winter sets in.Winter magnifies existing problems such as pings, hard starts, sluggish performance or rough idling. • Have the brakes checked. The braking system is the vehicle’s most important safety item. • Check to see that exterior and interior lights work and that headlights are properly aimed.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - December 1 2011





Five cyclists mowed down on March Road. Commuter killed on Queen Street. Compelled not only by these cycling deaths in Ottawa during the past few years but also the near misses they see every day, more than two dozen cyclists gathered on Saturday, Nov. 26 to come up with recommendations to submit to the Ontario coroner for an upcoming report. Organized by Mike Powell, chairman of the city’s roads and cycling advisory committee, the Saturday morning session sought to gather input from the cycling community and other concerned citizens on the topic of cycling safety. The cyclists at the session raised ideas ranging from better enforcement of the rules of the road, to creating a more consistent and meaningful accident reporting process, to the implementation of a province wide cycling safety awareness campaign. The session was in response to an invitation by the Office of the Chief Coroner of Ontario for the public to submit comments and recommendations to be considered as part of a review of cycling deaths across the province from 2006 to 2010. Powell was encouraged by a session that produced some productive discussions about cycling safety. “The overwhelming consensus of

More than two dozen Ottawa cyclists gathered at city hall on Saturday, Nov. 26 to talk about cycling safety and contribute a series of recommendations to a Ontario coroner’s review of cycling deaths across the province. ideas here today were reasonable ones,” he said. “We’re not talking about crazy things or banning cars or anything like that. I think there’s a recognition here that – most people here are motorists as well – that there’s a give and take needed and different situations require different things.” The responses gathered at the session, Powell said, would be translated into a combined submission to the coroner’s office on behalf of all those in attendance. Split into smaller working groups of six or seven people, the cyclists spent

four 20-minute sessions addressing four different questions: • What are your biggest cycling safety concerns? • What changes, if any, would you suggest be made to built cycling infrastructure? • What changes would you make to cycling awareness and education? • Are there any legal changes that can make cycling safer? Diane Dupuis, secretary of the Kanata Nepean Bicycling Club, said it was a worthwhile event and was pleased to see cycling safety issues catching the attention of officials at the provincial level. “I think it will have a greater impact than if it was done at the municipal level,” she said. “Hopefully the recommendations won’t get buried in the report, they will get implemented and some good can come out of this so that we can prevent cyclist deaths in the future.” Another cycling advocate at the session, Citizens for Safe Cycling president Hans Moor, said he was impressed by the constructive nature of the discussions. “I’m always nervous that it becomes a bit of a bashing against drivers, but you could hear a lot of positive feedback,” he

said. “I think it was very important that people recognize that cyclists are not holy either, that they make a lot of mistakes. It was good to see that cyclists are actually worried about other cyclists’ behaviour.” While he agreed with Dupuis that it was important the issues are being discussed at the provincial level, he said the impact of the review would inevitably be less immediate than local initiatives. “You know that things move very slowly, so I think we’re looking probably five to 10 years before you’ll start to see things implemented,” he said, adding that if a few of the recommendations from the review see the light of day, it would be regarded as a success. Led by Toronto west regional supervising coroner Dr. Dan Cass, the review will look to identify common factors that may have played a role in cycling deaths that occurred in Ontario from 2006 to 2010, and where possible, will make recommendations to prevent similar deaths. The review is expected to wrap up in spring of 2012 and a report will be issued afterwards. To view the joint submission generated from the Ottawa session, visit .

People came from far and wide this July to celebrate Canada Day, Dunrobin-style. Along with Corkery, the Dunrobin Community Association (DCA) offers Canada Day festivities drawing people from all over West Carleton and Ottawa. This year, Mayor Jim Watson, West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry and CarletonMississippi Mills MPP Gordon O’Connor all showed up to join the celebration. DCA president Greg Patacairk said that big events like Canada Day are made possible by the “army of volunteers” who assist the community association council members. The DCA serves the 300 residents living in Dunrobin, an area in West Carleton which centres around Dunrobin Road beginning at Thomas Dolan Parkway and ending just past Porcupine Trail. Another big annual event for the DCA is the outdoor skating rink that they maintain throughout the winter, the single largest expense on their budget every year. “Our ice rink is huge,” Patacairk said. “It opens whenever Mother Nature allows it to, and closes whenever Mother Nature tells it to.”

Outdoor hockey is a cheaper alternative to playing indoors, costing families only $60 per child per season. Various other activities are offered through the community centre, including badminton, ball hockey, Zumba and yoga classes, all of which are available for registration online. A recent community association project was to ensure registration was as easy as possible, and new software was launched on their website to ensure this. This summer, young community members used brand new mini nets at the community centre to play organized and pick-up soccer. Patacairk said there wasn’t a night when the grounds weren’t full of kids running around and staying active, right until sundown. Another bonus? While vandalism has been a problem in the past, not one act of vandalism was reported this summer in Dunrobin. “We gave those kids something to do,” Patacairk said. Not to say that all potential vandals were there playing soccer, he said, but with a constantly full park, vandalism opportunities dwindled. While the canteen in the community centre has traditionally been run by adults, this summer youth were invited to run the shop. For every hour they earned of community service, the next hour would be paid for. This allowed Patacairk to have two youth in the canteen for the price of one, while allowing them to earn community service hours required for high school graduation. Patacairk organized a soccer team for children

with special needs this summer; the first of its kind in the area. Satisfied with the results, Patacairk said he plans to bring it back and expand the program next summer. The DCA meets on the second Tuesday of the month at Sammy’s Pizzeria on Dunrobin Road. Patacairk is lobbying to construct a larger community centre to accommodate all members during meetings, but it will be a few years before the wheels are set in motion.

To my dear friend who left us on Dec. 4, 2008. It has now been 3 years since you left us. It seems like only yesterday you were greeting me regularly in my travels. I dearly miss your infectious smile and laugh. I will always Thank You for reaching out to be my friend, Especially when I was new here and did not have many. Please know your memory remains entrenched with all of the friends and folks that knew you, At our Church, at the beer store, at the mall, and everywhere in the community. Your presence was always felt and made us all smile. On behalf of your many, many, friends, I must say, We miss you like the desert misses the rain, more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow. You were one fine gentleman, Who was loved by many, And will never be forgotten. May The Lord Bless and Keep You, May The Lord Make His Face shine upon you, and be gracious to You May The Lord turn His Face toward you, and give your soul peace Now and forever.

Here’s to a great man we lost one year ago, Nov. 30, 2010 The hardest worker you will ever know, The best neighbour you could ask for, The fastest dance partner you tried to keep up with, The best Parent and Poppa in the world, We raise our glass to honour you.

Christopher Skarica MUNRO, In loving memory of Lionel who passed away December 5, 1993 and Frank who passed away November 21, 1991. Always remembered, Forever missed. The Munro Family



MARTIN, Hazel November 29, 2010

A year has passed, Since that fateful day, When the Lord called you home, And took you away. Mom, we know you fought, Your final battle to the end, Strength and courage at heart, There was too much to mend. When you took your Cheers Donnie! last breath, Love Angela and John, A light flickered from Jennifer and Kevin and afar, your grandchildren Your family knew then you were not gone, Merely resting; they know where you are. You live on in your children, Their smiles, their laughter, their tears, Mom, you will never be forgotten, Your memory will live on for years. Love, your family

Guardy D. Campbell December 1, 2010 In loving memory of a husband, father, father-in-law, grandpa, and great grandpa. The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it never will be the same. For those who still have their husbands and dads, Treat him with tender care, You will never know the emptiness, As when you turn and he is not there.
