A stove left unattended is suspected as being the cause of a fire in West Carleton Friday that killed two dogs. Ottawa Fire Services report a mobile home and vehicle were fully ablaze when firefighters arrived at 125 Harold Valley Dr. about 4 p.m. The home is in a trailer park off Grainger Park Road between Dwyer Hill Road and Highway 417. Ottawa Fire Services public information officer Marc Messier reports crews concentrated initially on protecting neighbouring homes and propane tanks that were at risk. The home, vehicle and shed were destroyed and a shed of a neighbouring home melted from the extreme heat, but the neighbouring home was saved. See ‘FIREFIGHERS’ Page 2

Fire destroys Spruce Ridge home JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

A home in the Spruce Ridge area across Highway 417 from Carp was destroyed by fire Monday morning. The fire was a few kilometers east of a blaze that destroyed a mobile home three days earlier. Ottawa Fire Services public information officer Marc Messier said firefighters were called to the blaze at 304 Spruce Ridge Rd., not far from Highway 7, at 8:42 a.m. The roof and the home’s second floor were fully ablaze

when firefighters arrived. There were some anxious minutes for firefighters and bystanders as the home’s occupant, reported to be Geoff Stevens, was feared to be trapped in the burning home. Firefighters attempted to reach the second floor to see if he was there, but were pushed back by the heavy fire and extreme heat. Fortunately, the owner, who lived alone in the house, was found outside shortly afterwards uninjured. The fire destroyed the home, which was up for sale, but fire crews did prevent it from spreading to the nearby

City to look at the future of garbage in next 30 years

Firefighters unable to save dogs Continued from front The owner, who lived alone, was not home at the time, but two Rottweiler dogs were in the mobile home at the time of the fire. Firefighters were unable to save them. Media reports indicated the owner of the home is Robert Grainger, who had stepped out only briefly, but long enough

forest and a neighboring home. Victim’s assistance was called in to look after the needs of the homeowner. Police closed a section of Spruce Ridge Road between Highway 7 and Richardson Side Road until about 3 p.m. to make it easier to allow firefighters to bring water in to fight the fire. A total of 48 firefighters attended the blaze The office of the Fire Marshal is investigating the blaze, which is estimated to have caused about $650,000 in damage.

for the fire to erupt. Close to 50 firefighters attended the blaze, which took about 45 minutes to get under control. One firefighter was treated at the scene for heat exhaustion. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but unattended cooking is suspected, says Messier. The damage is estimated at $65,000.

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Following on the heels of a decision to change the way Ottawa residents’ garbage is collected, the city is embarking on a plan to outline how waste will be dealt with over the next 30 years. The city already has “master plans” for areas such as transportation, cycling and parks, so why not garbage and recycling, asked environment committee chair Maria McRae, councillor for River Ward. A study will take 18 months to complete and the city will have a municipal waste master plan in place by 2014, said Sally McIntyre, the city’s manager environmental programs. She gave the environment committee a brief overview of the plan on June 16, but more detail will be coming in the fall. The process is kicking off this week as the city begins to meet with small, targeted groups to address unique concerns. Condo corporations, restaurants, institutional and industrial buildings and other types of groups will be included in those initial discussions, McIntyre said.

A broader consultation will get underway in the fall, when the city will hash out the draft goals of the plan. The city really wants to engage the public in these discussions, McIntyre said, and city staff will be coordinating with other departments to spread information in less-traditional venues such as fun fairs. By spring, the study should yield some idea of the policies and programs the city will need to adopt in order to achieve those goals. A plan to implement those policies would be in place by the fall of 2012, McIntyre said. All options are on the table, McIntyre told city councillors. Kanata North Coun. Allan Hubley wanted to know if the study could include a “serious discussion” about the option of incinerating garbage. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri asked that the study look at his suggestion from a few years ago about including an automated waste that would be built into the underground infrastructure of new communities in order to whisk garbage away without trucks. “On the record, everything is on the table,” McRae promised.

Row upon row of brightly decorated golf carts lined the turf of Greensmere Golf and Country Club in Carp June 15 for the Babs Harcourt Friendship Memorial Tournament. Flags flew from countries around the world as participants decorated their carts and themselves to fit this year’s theme – Around the World in 18 Holes. All funds raised from the tournament will go to the Lucille Broadbent Legacy Fund, part of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. The fund provides income to families battling cancer and the financial burdens that accompany it. Now in its fourth year, the tournament memorializes Greensmere member Babs Harcourt, who passed away from cancer in 2007. “Everybody who knew her loved her,” said Shirley-Ann George, an organizer of the event. “She was just the friendliest person, so we do this to remember Babs.” The costumes and decorations have become a tradition of the tournament, becoming more elaborate every year. “It’s something that people get really excited about,” George said. “It’s a lot of fun and it just adds a bit of unique character

to the event.” George wore a lei around her neck to symbolize her chosen country of Hawaii, which was appropriate considering the sunshine beaming down on the course. The sun was a welcome sight, said event chairwoman Margaret Gillgrass. “Last year, we were just poured on,” she said. “The turnout is always excellent; people show up no matter what, but this year is going to be hot and dry and warm and wonderful. Good golfing weather and good weather for friends to get together.” A chipping and putting contest kept the women busy before the official tee-off time at 1 p.m. PGA golf pro Warren Grant was present to offer putting advice. Additional fundraising efforts included raffles and a silent auction, showcasing around 60 items fitting the ‘Around the World’ theme. The buffet-style dinner included international cuisines ranging from Asian stir fry to Canadian lobster and Italian tortellini. Each year, the event gets bigger and better, said George. “It’s a growing tournament,” she said. “People who come once end up coming back again.” A total of 125 women participated in the event and raised over $8,000 for the Lucille Broadbent Legacy Fund.

OPP report a Dunrobin man is facing several criminal charges after failing to stop for police at a RIDE spot check in Arnprior June 7. At about 10 p.m., OPP Constable Denys Baranovskiy was conducting RIDE spot checks at the intersection of Baskin Drive and Stonehaven Road. A man driving a pickup approached the officers and proceeded through at a high rate of speed, failing to stop when directed by the officer. The driver sped off, failing to halt at a stop sign and proceeded to ram a private gate at a property on Gilles Grove Road in McNab-Braeside. The driver then fled on foot. He later attended the Arnprior Detachment of the OPP and admitted driving the vehicle at the time. A 33-year-old Dunrobin resident was charged with dangerous driving, flight from police and mischief under $5,000. He was released from custody on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew July 27.

CONST. PETER JEON OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE

They called him the streaker. The West Carleton Streaker to be more precise. Section 174 of the Criminal Code provides that everyone who, without lawful excuse, is nude in a public place is guilty of an offence punishable on summary procedure. However, no proceedings shall be commenced under this section without the consent of the Attorney General. On Thursday police were called to the West Carleton Secondary School after a student ran buck naked through its student filled hallways. Accounting to eye witness accounts, the first exposure took place in the school parking lot where the student jumped out of a motor vehicle. With only a scarf on, the student ran into the school and exposed his fellow classmates to the naked truth. For his grand finale, the student ran out of the school and flew out of the parking lot in a waiting Honda Pilot. With the help of witnesses police were able to quickly crack the case and charged the adult student with public nudity. DEER COUNTER Week 24 and five more deer collisions have been reported in the rural west districts; one in West Carleton and four in Rideau-Goulbourn. The total score now stands at 63 to 37, in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. BREAK-INS An unidentified suspect(s) entered into a commercial storage building at 217 Cardevco Road in the Carp Business Park sometime during the overnight hours of Monday, June 13 and stole an unknown quantity of scrap metal and a reel of copper wire. The door to the storage facility was secured with a single bolt. In the same location, a locked commercial van was broken into sometime during the overnight hours on Monday,, June 13 by an unidentified suspect and a large assortment of tools, worth over $5000, was stolen. It is believed

that the suspect who broke into the van was also responsible for the breaking into the commercial storage facility. On Thursday., June 16 at around 1:30 a.m.., patrol officers and the K9 unit were dispatched to the Len Purcell Community Centre in Constance Bay for a report of a break-and-enter. Information on the call indicated an internal motion sensor had been triggered and the suspects were probably still inside of the building. After conducting a security sweep of the building’s exterior, officers prepared to enter the darkened community centre by loudly announcing their presence to anyone who might still be lurking inside and directing them to give themselves up. Within seconds of entering the building, the dog, aka officer Blast, picked up on a strong human scent that lingered in the air and followed it to the woman’s washroom. In the darkness, officer Blast nosed his way around a hockey net and some clothes, and quickly locked in on his targets. There, crouched on top of the toilet behind door number one was an 18-year-old female from Nepean and hidden behind door number two was a 16-year-old male from MacLaren’s Landing. IMPAIRED CHARGES A 26-year-old driver from Rideau-Goulbourn was charged with impaired driving and over 80 after he drove his truck into a hydro pole guy-wire and passed out behind the wheel in the 1200 block of Bayview Drive in Constance Bay June 12. It was shortly after 11 p.m. when police were dispatched to a single motor vehicle accident on Bayview Drive. On investigation it was discovered that the intoxicated driver crashed through a mailbox and drove over the front lawn before coming to rest against a hydro pole guy-wire. On further investigation, it was determined that the same driver was involved in an earlier collision in the 300 Bayview Drive area where he plowed his white pickup truck through a six-foot high PVC fence. In that particular incident the driver remained conscious and left the scene without reporting it to police.

With a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.257, the driver was charged and held for Show Cause. To put things in perspective, in Canada the maximum legal BAC for fully licensed drivers is 0.08. INTOXICATED TEEN An 18-year-old male was charged under the Ontario Liquor Licence Act for being drunk in a public place and supplying alcohol to a minor after patrol officers happened upon two teens hanging out at the skateboard park at the Constance Bay Community Centre shortly before 11 p.m. on Friday, June 10. While the 18-year-old male staggered about the skateboard park, his 15-year-old girlfriend laid on the ground convulsing. After paramedics assessed the female for alcohol poisoning, she was transported to her Constance Bay home and turned over to her very disappointed mother. SIGN SWITCH

between 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 9 and 5 p.m. Sunday, June 12, unidentified persons smashed several beer bottles in a complainant’s laneway and damaged his lamp post on Norgreen Street in Constance Bay. STUNT BACKFIRED An 18-year-old driver was issued a seven-day driver’s licence suspension and his red Acura impounded after he was observed stunt driving along Torbolton Ridge Road in West Carleton at high rates of speed

during the mid-afternoon hours on Friday, June 3. While out patrolling along Galetta Side Road, an officer observed the red car turn abruptly onto Torbolton before it violently fishtailed along the roadway and sped off in a cloud of dust. As the car pulled away from the following patrol car, it continued to fishtail back and forth along the roadway. After forming reasonable grounds for the offence, the officer activated his lights and sirens and conducted a traffic stop.

Be a donor Imagine having the potential to save eight lives and enhance 75 more. It’s all possible by registering online as an organ and tissue donor. More than 1,500 Ontarians are on the list waiting for an organ transplant. Every three days, someone in this province dies while waiting for a lifesaving transplant. Thousands more are waiting for a tissue transplant that could help enhance their lives. You can change that. All you have to do is take a few minutes out of your day to register as an organ and tissue donor online. Signed donor cards are no longer an acceptable option; the card may not be available when the information is needed and your wishes will go unknown.

The online registry stores your information in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database and shares your decision to donate with the Trillium Gift of Life Network, Ontario’s organ and tissue donation agency. When you register, you ensure your decision to donate will be carried out in the event of your death – donation is only an option after all life-saving efforts have failed. Granted, death is a morbid subject – especially when it comes unexpectedly. But your organs and tissue won’t do any good for anyone when they’re six feet under. Corneas could help a woman see the world around her. A skin graft could help a burn victim heal. A new pair of lungs

could give a child with cystic fibrosis the breath to carry on. A new heart could give a father the chance to watch his son grow up. Anyone can donate regardless of pre-existing medical conditions and lifestyle. You can also choose what to give. The doctors assess the organs and tissue and make the decision from there as to what’s viable. The only requirement is that you are 16 years of age or older. Don’t leave the burden of choice up to your loved ones. Register online at www. beadonor.ca, visit a ServiceOntario centre or download and mail in the Gift of Life consent form to become an organ and tissue donor. Save a life. Save eight lives.

Yet another good reason to head for the lake Next week the fighting will start – the people who want to go off to the cottage for Canada Day against the people who want to stay in town and see Will and Kate. There are other subgroups, the people who want to stay in town to see the jazz festival and the people who want to stay in town for the fireworks, but that’s quite a different matter. You might think this upcoming battle is a battle of the sexes – the women wanting to see the royal couple and the men wanting to go fix the dock – but that’s oldfashioned stereotyped thinking. It’s more complicated than that. Back in April there were an awful lot of people, both male and female, who got up at five in the morning to watch the royal wedding on TV. Around that time, I remarked casually to a group of like-minded people that it was crazy and perhaps even un-Canadian of the CBC to send Peter Mansbridge over to London to cover the wedding just three days before a Canadian federal election. Turns out that many people were less likeminded than I thought. There was much leaping to the defence of the CBC and defending of the historical importance of the royal wedding.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town This, of course, doesn’t mean I was wrong. Anyway, the whole argument will now start up again. Some people will say that the way to go about being a good Canadian on Canada Day is to go to a lake and do something with a canoe or a tree. In doing so we are honouring our ancestors and our heritage. Others will argue that the Crown is part of what makes Canada special and that we should salute it in person whenever the opportunity arises. Not all of these people are old codgers. Now, it’s true that the motorcade isn’t going to stop for them, nor will they be able to get close enough to salute, but it’s the thought that counts. It should also be noted that there is a

rapidly growing number of Canadians whose heritage includes neither lakes and canoes nor royal couples from England. If you’re in that group, you might be very confused by it all, and should maybe just hang out at the jazz festival, where neither God Save the Queen nor O Canada is likely to be played. Mind you, you might hear the CF-18s and the 21 guns. One of the reasons the monarchy has survived so long in this country is that people tend to be rather good-natured about it. It helps that most of our royal visitors in recent times have been rather pleasant and it is difficult even for a committed republican to direct the necessary amount of outrage against them. Will and Kate, too, seem quite nice. If you want to work up a case against a royal visit it is necessary to search for some other reason. The only one that springs to mind is that having a princess in our midst might encourage more of our Canadian little girls to want to be princesses. Feminists and other sensible people have been worrying about the princess phenomenon for some time now – parents dressing their daughters up in frilly

pink costumes, sometimes even with little crowns and tiaras. It is the result of a marketing ploy some people blame on the Disney empire. Whoever is at fault, it isn’t doing much to persuade our daughters to become doctors, engineers, soldiers, hockey players or any of the things they can be that don’t involve marrying princes. It’s unlikely that Kate, when she gets to Ottawa, will be wearing a crown or anything frilly and pink, but you can never be too careful, which is why heading for the lake isn’t such a bad idea. Everybody knows you can’t be a princess and climb a tree at the same time.

To the editor: The West Carleton Health Access Foundation would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the Rural Root Theatre for donating the proceeds from opening night of their recent performance to the Foundation. As well, we thank the Constance Bay/ Buckams Bay Community Association for their contribution. We so very much appreciate your recognition of the need in the community for new x-ray equipment and your $1,000 donation will be helpful in reaching our goal of $350,000. To date members of the community have donated almost $40,000 to our first-ever campaign: the X-Ray Vision Campaign, a very good start! Over the summer months the Foundation

Fund Raising Committee will be approaching the small businesses sector with a view to raising awareness and funds. And, in the fall we will be hosting an event featuring Norman Hallendy, an expert on traditional Arctic life, who lives in West Carleton and has generously donated his time. We hope this event can be accommodated at the Diefenbunker sometime in September. Watch for further news. Our Foundation is now reaching out for new members. We need people who can assist in fundraising and event planning. Please email Moira at moira@wchaf.ca or June at june@wchaf.ca. Thanks for all your help and support.

To the editor: When the Barred Owl appeared in Gillies Grove this past winter, we were hopeful it would nest here once again. From our observations, as with the Red Shouldered Hawk, the Barred has not nested in the Grove for several years, so this young Barred sighted this week is testament to a successful breeding her in Arnprior, after a long absence. This young Barred Owl was sighted last week in the Grove waiting for a meal to be brought to it.

After spending days flushing and cleaning the Village streets, a crew is sent to sweep the accumulation of winter from the sidewalks to the streets. A little backward, don’t you think! In conclusion, in order to be “politically correct,” we must be silent and let ourselves drown in the abyss of unethical practices. Drown in the abyss of contempt and lack of compassion!

As you read this letter, please keep in mind that we get no pleasure out of having to expose the contents of it. We would be only too happy to be proven wrong. Each and every one of us are in this world in order to do our share, in making this a better community, a better Canada and a better world to appease our Lord and Saviour. Many are asking for democratic reform. What is happening to social justice? Instead of loving thy neighbour, envy has become popular; dare we say “hatred is lurking in the shadows.” For starters, two things we need are good listeners, because the majority only hear what they want to hear. Poor listeners are excellent candidates for brainwashing. The person in the chair of any meeting can do so much to make a meeting work well. A tactful chairman can make a

meeting a success or a failure. How many people have served their term on a board and never knew or cared if there was a constitution in place. The constitution should be reviewed more often, and a copy should be kept on the table at every meeting and it should be read and understood prior to agreeing to sit on any board. If you don’t have your house in order at the grassroots level, is that not the reason that so much corruption exists at higher levels? What I have observed lately greatly concerns me. 1. Crews that are sent out to trim trees and other shrubs will only remove what they have trimmed, but don’t dare touch previously trimmed branches or

P.S. The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end there it is. As quoted by The Right Honourable Sir Winston Churchill.

Compassion in the service of care, Jamie MacDougall and the Order of Canada

Jamie MacDougall is the founder and Director of The Ottawa Hospital’s Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development. He grew up in Overbrook, a brisk run from the General Campus. He went to high school at Lisgar, beside City Hall.

“You immediately think of all the people that made it possible, especially those with disabilities who inspired me. It is validation for thousands of people,” says MacDougall of the honour. Deafness and disability is personal for MacDougall. His parents, Peter and Gladys, were both deaf. His daughter, Paige, suffered a serious head injury at age 17, bringing his awareness of disabilities even closer to home.

“People with disabilities have greater potential than we realize,” says MacDougall. “They have to overcome a lot of stereotypes…Just like everyone else, they aspire to realize their full potential.”

Rusty Wendt, the head Carleton University’s Department of Psychology, understood this calling early on, convincing McDougall to take a summer job working with deaf parents seeking better means to communicate with their hearing children.

MacDougall left Carleton for McGill, getting his Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology, studying the psychological impact of sensory deprivation and the link between deafness and literacy. Moving to Newfoundland’s Memorial University, he studied the impact of resettlement on cognitive development in children. From there, he went on to Rochester New York’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Then, back to McGill, where he spent 40 years teaching in the area of deafness and disability, and lead the Mackay Centre for Deaf and Disabled Children. His research is rooted in the everyday challenges faced by the Deaf and persons with disability. “Whether its children or adults,” says MacDougall, “I’ve been touched by the courage of extraordinary people.” Those people, in turn, have enabled valuable research. “The strength of clinically driven research is that it is both practical and sophisticated because of the problems it allows us to explore”. During one particularly complex case with a deaf Inuk in Nunavut who was said to have no language, MacDougall discovered the Inuit had their own sign language – Inuit Sign Language. His ability to extend clinical work beyond the hospital into the real world sets MacDougall apart. Working with advocacy groups such as the Canadian Hearing Society and the Canadian Association of the Deaf, he fought to ensure people with disabilities enjoy the full protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. His example brings The Ottawa Hospital a step closer to its vision of providing each patient with the world class care, exceptional service and compassion we would want for our loved ones.

Waste Management of Canada Corporation Environmental Assessment for a New Landfill Footprint at the West Carleton Environmental Centre Existing Conditions & Evaluation Criteria Available July 4th The Project Waste Management of Canada Corporation (WM) is undertaking an Environmental Assessment (EA) seeking approval for a new landfill footprint at the existing Ottawa Waste Management Facility (Ottawa WMF). The new landfill footprint will be one component of the proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre (WCEC), an integrated waste management facility that will include: • A new landfill footprint for disposal of residual waste materials; • Waste diversion and recycling operations; • Composting operations; • Renewable energy facilities; and, • Recreational lands for community uses. The Environmental Assessment The new landfill footprint is the only component of the WCEC that requires EA approval under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The proposed location of the WCEC and the new landfill footprint component is within the City of Ottawa in the area shown on the adjacent map. The purpose of the EA is to study the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of the proposed new landfill footprint. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies and the public; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and, the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal. Get Involved In Phase I and Phase II of the EA Process, the public was consulted regarding existing conditions, evaluation methodology, and evaluation criteria and indicators. The following reports will be available for public review beginning July 4th: • Existing Conditions and • Evaluation Methodology, Criteria, and Indicators. These reports can be accessed in two ways: • Electronic versions are available under the “Resources” tab on the project website (http://wcec.wm.com) and • A hard copy version is available for in-person viewing at the WM Ottawa Hauling Office – 254 Westbrook Road. Those wanting to review the materials in person are asked to contact one of the individuals noted below to arrange for a time to view the materials. Open Houses will be scheduled to take place in September to provide a summary of the existing environmental conditions; present the methodology for the comparative evaluation of the proposed alternative new landfill footprints; and to identify the preferred new landfill footprint. Notification of specific dates, times and locations for the Open Houses will be provided to the public through advertisement, direct mail, and email, as done previously for other Open Houses in the EA Process. Please check the project website for updates regarding the public consultation for the EA process. Have Your Say As always, we welcome you to submit your written comments in person, to the project website (http://wcec.wm.com), or via mail, email or fax to the coordinates below.

The return of the body invaders MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way

Creatures that live inside human bodies, tunnelling through the skin and erupting into view while their human hosts are still alive - science fiction movies certainly seem imaginative. While one might wish to credit the writer of the horrendous script for his creativity, in reality the idea was stolen from a much more imaginative source. The movie Alien is based on real natural history events, many of which occur right in your backyard. Many kinds of wasps and flies live this lifestyle. As larvae, they invade the bodies of other animals where they devour the insides of their host while it is living. They only emerge from its body when transforming to the adult stage. How these “aliens” get inside is a fascinating tale. Some parasitoids (unlike parasites, these invaders always kill their host) lay their miniscule eggs on leaves. After being inadvertently swallowed by a hungry caterpillar munching the plant, the eggs hatch inside its gut. Others lay their eggs on the creature. Still others, including all of the wasp parasitoids, inject their eggs into the animal. Some parasitoids paralyze their prey and burrow them in the ground with their eggs. Now, animals have an immune system that does not appreciate intruders and normally foreign objects are attacked by blood cells. But the invaders are clever. Along with the eggs they inject chemicals that shut down the host’s immune system so their larvae can devour its

flesh with impunity. My favourite body invader is a very large ichneumon wasp, Megarhyssa. If you have seen one of these beauties you may have run for cover because it seems to carry a stinger longer than its body. Actually, it is not a stinger but a drill that is used to access larvae of Horntails that lay hidden in trees. The wasp finds a Horntail by tapping its antennae over the bark looking for the odours of fungus that the adult Horntail injected near its egg. Horntail larvae eat the fungus as it grows in the chamber it chews in the wood. It is also thought the wasp has vibration sensors in its feet for detecting the target as it chews. Once a Horntail is detected, the wasp drills into the wood. This is no easy task for the drill is far too long. First it must be withdrawn into the wasp’s final body part, the metasoma. This is raised into the air and inflates like a balloon. Inside the sac, the base of the drill and two long filaments that guide it can be seen as they coil up. When the drill is under the body perpendicular to the tree, it releases chemicals that dissolve wood fibres. Slowly the drill works its way through the wood to the Horntail, which is paralyzed with venom as an egg is laid into it. Watch for these body invaders all summer long. But unlike the movie Alien, the unwilling host has no actor double and ends up quite dead. The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

THE OTTAWA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION In October 2009, Rhea Ferguson’s father, Bill, was diagnosed with esophageal gastric cancer at age 59.

After successfully undergoing treatment at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the family received some devastating news – the cancer was back, and this time, it was inoperable. Ferguson also knows more about the need for cancer research than the average person. She recently completed her Master’s degree in cancer epidemiology at McGill University, has worked with cancer researcher Dr. John Bell at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and is currently working as a database manager for the Hospital’s ovarian cancer bank. “Cancer research has always been a big passion for me,” said the 26-year-old Ottawa native. “There’s a history of cancer in my family. I lost all my grandparents to it.”

Ferguson, who is riding as a member of the Cancer Trailblazers, the OHRI Cancer Centre team, said she reached her fundraising goal of $1,500 in just two weeks. “People are so generous,” she said. “Everyone knows someone who is affected by the disease. “It would be amazing to have another treatment option that is… not so hard on the body,” she said. “The research needs to continue.” With her father’s health rapidly declining, she said she will be thinking about him when she does the ride on Sept. 10. “I’m hoping to be able to tell him about it,” she said. To support Rhea Ferguson’s ride, or to join her mother, Sheila Ferguson, as a volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca

Looking for a way to make a difference, she learned about Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser from Ottawa to Merrickville to support cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital, and immediately signed up. “It’s raising money for where I work, and it’s going to where my dad was treated,” she said. “It was a perfect fit.” Ferguson’s mother, Sheila, also got on board as a Ride the Rideau volunteer.

Ride the Rideau participant Rhea Ferguson with her parents, Sheila and Bill.

“My mom and I are involved because my dad is dying of cancer,” she said. “We want to do something for him. It’s a personal cause for both of us.”

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The tractor pull season begins in earnest this Saturday, June 25 in Antrim. Despite unfounded rumours about its potential demise, the 16th annual Kinburn Tractor Pull and Truck Demonstration will be alive and kicking, make that pulling, at the Antrim Flea Market at 3636 Highway 17 in Kinburn. There will be more than $2,000 in prizes for competitors at the popular family event organized by the Kinburn Community Association. The Antrim Flea Market is

an ideal location, as it is spacious, central and close to Highway 417. It is also a natural place to put trucks in the spotlight, being the former Antrim Truck Stop. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with all the excitement starting at 11 a.m. The entry fee is $8 per pull, with several classes available from antique to farm and lawn tractors. The entry fee is $6, with youth 12 and under free. Proceeds go to the Kinburn Community Association for upkeep of its community centre and other initiatives. For more information, call Jayne Coady at 613-832-1750 or

MORE PULLS The Valley Garden Tractor Pullers, a group of antique and vintage garden tractor enthusiasts, will host a tractor pull in Carp Friday, July 8. The show is held in conjunction with the Carp Show and Shine car show that weekend at the Carp Fair Grounds. Registration for the tractor pull starts at 6 p.m. There will also be tractor pulls during the Arnprior Fair in August and the Carp Fair in September.

Providing that personal touch!

Would you rather be healthy?

Harden’s Fine Jewellers has been one of the landmarks in Kanata since 1979. Their success has been built on friendly, personalized service and loyal customers who, through ‘word of mouth’, continue to return to their location in the Hazeldean Mall. Owner, Reg Harden, believes truly that “sharing life’s precious moments with our clients”, is crucial, and that “it is an honour and privilege to share in these remarkable occasions”.

Marcia was so excited to become a grandmother; a chance to spoil and play with her grandkids like she once did her own children. Plagued by crippling pain however, Marcia was robbed of these opportunities and instead spent her days in one of few positions which didn’t result in agony. Desperate to get those times back with her grandchildren, she called Synergy Chiropractic: A Creating Wellness Centre. Within a couple months under chiropractic care, Marcia was finally able to endure the once excruciating car ride to the office. Weeks after, she proudly drove herself to her appointments. With the help of additional daily education and tools to achieve a wellness lifestyle, Marcia has since quit smoking and follows a healthier diet.

Be it an upcoming engagement, bridal affair, or anniversary in your near future, Harden’s has some of the finest diamond collections to feast your eyes on! Their primary goal is to please clients by providing them with the best in style, quality, innovation, and price. Harden’s is also the exclusive jeweller to

There’s more to the name than just chiropractic at Synergy; they are also aimed at helping you achieve your wellness goals. With state of the art equipment to assess the three main dimensions of stress, and a wealth of information at their fingertips, they are prepared to help you face these struggles and guide you in making your life better! Stress and pain in life are inevitable, suffering is optional. Call today for a thorough and comprehensive spine and nerve system assessment including consultation, biostructural posture assessment, spinal images, computerized scans of your nervous system and follow-up with action plan.

carry the newly-mined Ontario ‘Victor’ Diamonds. These diamonds are not only ‘home grown’, but their brilliance and quality is astounding. Browse through Harden’s website at www.hardensjewellers.com to get a feel for that personal touch and see what other jewellery options they provide. From custom design, gold jewellery, watches, fashion jewellery, and the ever popular Chamilia bead line, they have it all. Their extensive repair department also underlines the confidence people have in Harden’s to take care of their precious jewels and heirlooms. Come in and see for yourself – they’ll make you glad you did!

Have a wonderful burrito day! What does it take to be successful in the restaurant industry? Well, it looks like Mikhael Absi, owner of Mucho Burrito has found the right recipe after being awarded as this year’s Readers Choice winner in the diamond and platinum categories. “We want our customers to know how appreciative we are to receive the Diamond and Platinum Award,” says Mikhael. “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal clients, and our entire staff for the work they do everyday to make us successful.”

cellence in all areas: quality fresh food, great service and convenience in a bright and fun atmosphere. “For those who’ve never visited us, we invite you stop in and see what the fuss is all about. As well, we’re pleased to announce that Burrito 2 is coming soon to Baseline and Clyde,” says Mr. Absi. Mucho Burrito is located at 160 Earl Grey Drive (at Centrum), Kanata Phone: 613-595-0007 Fax: 613-595-0067.

Thomas Findley McLennan B.Sc. Honours (Animal Science) Cindy and Myles McLennan are pleased to announce the graduation of their son, Thomas Findley McLennan from the University of Guelph with an Honours Bachelor of Science (Animal Science). While at Guelph, Thomas received the University of Guelph Scholarship for Academics, The R.A. Stewart Scholarship for Agriculture and the Monsanto Co. Scholarship for Agriculture. Thomas has also been helped in his education from Arnprior with the “Stan Ball Memorial Scholarship” for athletics and the M. Sullivan & Son’s “Bonus” Awards for education.

Our dad lived and loved his life and everyone in it to the fullest. Between the dashes are full of his life experiences. We suspect he is now fishing in that hidden fishing hole with Dave.

Good luck “Chum” in your future education. Dad & Mom

We miss you both, Love, Edith, Colleen & Chip, Rick & Melissa and Cathy

“How Do You Live Your Dash?” I read of a man who stood to speak, At the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on his coffin, From the beginning…to the end. He noted that first came his date of birth, And spoke the following date with tears, But he said what mattered most of all, Was the dash between the years. For that dash represents all the time That he spent alive on earth… And now only those who loved him, Know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own; The cars, the house, the cash, What matters is how we live and love, And how we spend our dash.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - June 23 2011

CAPITAL REGION

Dharma Developments second new home community

Orville Station is set to be located at the former site of the Canadian Pacific Stittsville Railway Station. This is a mixed-use project in which the residential phase of the development consists of 36 condominium suites in the heart of Stittsville Village. All models are priced starting from the mid $200’s. These stylish one bedroom lofts and two bedroom suites are ideal for home buyers looking for a low-maintenance, modern lifestyle in a healthy environment. Perhaps some of the most compelling aspects of this development are the location – in Stittsville because of the nature of this quaint village, but also the goals of the developer which include building a community for people that is focused on people. Providing those from different socialeconomic status either the opportunity to buy their first home in Stittsville or a home to down-size into and allow them stay in the community they love. The development was designed to make the best use of the land available on the site, in order to provide home owners with green space to admire

and enjoy; something that most condominium communities don’t provide. To give people a clean, healthy environment where they can breathe easy. To bring more people into the community without taking too much land to do it, help revitalize the south end of Stittsville Main Street and support the new and old businesses in the immediate vicinity. To take advantage of the public transit that is available right outside the front doors of Orville Station. Dharma is one step closer to bringing this innovative and important community to Stittsville. With foundation complete for the first phase and phase two selling, It also provides an example for other developers and the greater City of Ottawa to embrace sustainable development. With less and less land becoming available to developers at city limits to build homes, it is more important than ever to build consciously and responsibly within city limits. Building homes that fit within the existing community promote health, community growth and grow tax revenue for the city.

Dr. Bruce G. Firestone, a broker at Partners Advantage GMAC and Professor at Ottawa University is a proponent of this type of development and has shown support for Orville Station citing that we need to “build cities for people; cars are an important consideration, but they should be a lower priority.” He also thinks that if density in a neighbourhood increases, so should the property values of the surrounding homes as it brings more people to live, work and shop in the area. This increases demand because more people will want to live and work in the area and so pricing should increase as well.” This movement towards sustainable development of quality homes and maximized use of land helps our natural environment and maintains or improves the health of people within communities. We will see benefits for years to come – better health preservation which could lower impacts on the healthcare system, increased value in home investments, lower energy consumption and greater sense of community.

Smart Move. Smart Home.

Walk Saturday to show need for forests Innovation Drive, off Terry Fox Road at 10 a.m. The walk will be postponed only for extreme weather conditions. Webber explains that the loss of forest in the area has prompted her to hold the walk. “Developers will continue clear cutting in July. I am volunteering to lead a hike into the forest while the major part is still intact.” A walk in the forest is an escape from city noises and smog and good for the

Martha Webber of Dunrobin Road is holding a ‘Walk on the wild side’ this Saturday, June 25 in Ottawa’s ‘Great Forest’, Webber is inviting people to “savor the cool, clean air on a hot summer day” and discover ancient trees, edible wild plants and wildlife habitats in Ottawa’s “answer to Gatineau Park.” She advises participants to dress appropriately to hike rocky trails, bring a bag lunch and meet at the RIM parking lot on

health, she says. She notes that Japan has ‘forest bathing’ and studies find pulse and blood pressure are lowered by spending a day in the forest. The effects last up to a month and in the U.S. there have been studies about the positive effects of green spaces on hyperactivity and ADHD, Webber adds. “I know of parents in Ottawa whose autistic children are happier and calmer while walking in this forest.”

She says to replace an old growth forest with 3,500 houses and twice that number of cars in the capital city of Canada is not only climate change denial, but disregard for the health of all residents. Webber has run for the last two winters ‘Families in Nature’ for the Eco-wellness Centre on the Carp Ridge. She is really impressed by even the youngest children and their excitement over discoveries they make at in the forest, she says. For more information, call Webber at 613-839-5217.
