It was déjà vu all over again for Gordon O’Connor, as voters handed him a fourth term as MP in Carleton-Mississippi Mills. O’Connor will return to Parliament as part of a majority government, with the Tories picking up 167 seats in the May 2 election. “It means four years of stability,” said O’Connor. “It means the government can plan for the long term. We have been on continuous election preparation.” O’Connor won his riding by one of the widest margins across the country, taking 43,644 votes and 56.8 per cent of the riding, with all 299 polls reporting – about one per cent less than his victory in the 2008 election. He easily defeated Liberal newcomer Karen McCrimmon, who ﬁnished second with 24 per cent – about one per cent higher than the Liberals received in the 2008 election. O’Connor was ﬁrst
elected to the House of Commons in 2004, and was re-elected during the 2006 and 2008 elections. He has served in Cabinet as Minister of National Defence, Minister of National Revenue, and Minister of State and Chief Government Whip. Preliminary results showed Erin Peters of the New Democratic Party rising to third place with 14.7 per cent and the Green’s John Hogg ﬁnishing with less than 5 per cent. With 272 of the 299 polls reporting, the voter turnout for Carleton-Mississippi Mills was at 72.6 per cent, rising from 65 per cent in the previous election. Tory blue once again spilt across the national capital region, with only David McGuinty and Mauril Belanger holding on to Liberal seats in Ottawa South and Ottawa-Vanier. In Ottawa Centre, Paul Dewar, son of former Ottawa mayor Marion Dewar secured his seat for the NDP. See ‘TORIES’ page 3

Trees Ontario pitches forests on farmland firstname.lastname@example.org
A non-proﬁt group aiming to grow one billion more trees in Ontario is offering a deal to property owners interested in boosting the value of their land while helping the environment and the local economy. Trees Ontario, acting on governmental and academic studies, wants to ensure the province has at least 30 per cent forested lands. Many areas fall far short of that, including southern Ontario with as little as ﬁve per cent in some areas. Trees cool river water, improve air quality and soil, prevent riverbank erosion and more. By replacing abandoned farmland with forests, landowners create a more aesthetically-pleasing property, which in turn could increase resale. Also, as a renewable resource, opportunity exists to sell wood for proﬁt. “Our service is for landowners who are interested in growing a forest as a way to invest in the environment, or for aesthetic reasons for their kids to enjoy as a legacy or to up the value of their property,” said Robert Keen, CEO of Trees Ontario during a recent visit to Arnprior. “Usually we hear from people who own abandoned farmland, but not always. It can be anyone with a sizable property.” The program is popular, though not well known except through word of mouth. Karen Stokes is with Renfrew County Stewardship Program. She said since the program started seven years ago, some 700,000 trees have been planted in the county. It has a 90 per cent survival rate. “This is the right time of year to plant,” she told the West Carleton Review. “We’ve been doing this for a while, so there’s a real science involved.” She added that local horticulturists beneﬁt as tree suppliers to the program. Most new forests start out as tree farms, usually dominated by red pine or white spruce. These species are best for growing in sandy soil, typical of the abandoned farmland Trees Ontario is reclaiming. After 30 or 40 years, the soil improves and other species are introduced natural through seeds blown in the wind. After
80 to 100 years, a native forest is in place; ready to help reduce humanity’s carbon footprint and provide a sustainable and renewable resource for the bio fuel industry and others.

Step one is to call him at his Deep River into forested land, but it takes home: 613-584-2345. He’ll then pay a site time to pay off. visit to discuss options. On a two-hectare property, the minimum size needed, seeds will be planted in rows eight feet long, seven feet apart. Cost to the owner is 15 cents a tree or $660 for 4,400 trees. The obligation on the landowner is to agree to clear the area before seeding and mow twice a year for two years afterward. The landowner must also agree to allow for site visits for testing purposes, small signage promoting the program, and promise not to cut the trees for at least 15 years. “Very few are reluctant because of the whole ‘government involvement’ thing,” Gallagher said during a visit to Arnprior. “Those types don’t bother calling up.” The price is the same regardless of topography. But the waiting list of two years is in effect to ensure supply keeps up with demand. Gallagher said tree thinning after 20 years might help the landowner to break even on input costs. After 40 years, the wood is cut for sale in various forms.

Despite getting just about half the vote of O’Connor, McCrimmon said she will return to ﬁght again. Standing on a chair while addressing about 50 Liberal supporters at the Scottish Glen Restaurant in Stittsville at 11:20 p.m. on election night Monday, McCrimmon said that there are still things that need to get done. “This is just step one,” she said about this election. “This is not the end.” McCrimmon promised to run in the next federal election. “Absolutely,” she said. “But will there be anything left of my country?” she said. McCrimmon said that the one outstanding lesson that she learned in this, her ﬁrst federal election campaign, is that it’s really all about people and that, “in the end, that’s all that matters.” “We have done really well here in the big scheme of things,” she said about the results in the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding. “We gave it 110 per cent,” she added, saying that this was just the beginning. “Together we can make a difference,” she said before standing down from the chair. But she was quickly up again on the chair to add one small request. “One other thing,” she said. “Can I have a beer now?”
Hogg watched the election returns on a laptop surrounded by about a dozen Green Party supporters at Grafﬁtis Italian Eatery and Saloon at the Holiday Inn in Kanata on Monday night, May 2. Though he failed to make a dent in Carleton-Mississippi Mills, Hogg said this election was an historic night, with Green leader Elizabeth May defeating longtime Tory cabinet minister Gary Lunn to win the Saanich-Gulf Islands riding in B.C. “This is a tremendous success because the political landscape has changed,” said Hogg. “We actually have a Green in the Commons.” That means Canadians will be hearing from the Greens for the next four years and will actually be hearing from Greens in the next election campaign, he said. “I think it’s a harbinger of things to come,” Hogg said. “I believe we’ll see Greens in the Ontario legislature come the fall.” Hogg offered a few words of

Police record-check fees to rise New Ottawa police record check fees will go into effect May 1. The Ottawa Police Services Board approved the fee increases in the 2011 budget. The decision was based on that fact an increase in requests for records checks and other services had created a large gap between the cost of providing the services and the revenues generated. The changes are consistent with fees charged by other municipal police services in Ontario. Effective May 1, the Ottawa Police Service will increase fees for services for: • Police Record Check for Service with the Vulnerable Sector – $15 (free for volunteers
with a volunteer letter), non-resident – $50; • Police Record Check “while you wait” Express – $50, only available at 474 Elgin St. for those living in Ottawa for ﬁve years; • Criminal Record Check – $43, non-resident – $78; • Copy of Police report (e.g. accidents) – $48; • Adoption Application letter and Police Records Check – $58; • Pardon application – $54.

Tree falls on house on Galetta Sideroad SHERRY HAAIMA email@example.com
Thursday afternoonâ€™s powerful winds wreaked havoc across much of Arnprior, McNab-Braeside and West Carleton. Downed trees, power lines and ďŹ‚ying debris had emergency crews busy throughout the afternoon as the wind continued to blast the area. The mid-day burst of high winds that reached close to 100 kilometres per hour brought a huge poplar tree down on a house on Galetta Sideroad near the Fitzroy turnoff. A number of trees came down all over the area, including in the Grove in Arnprior, blocking many of the paths. Power restoration and cleanup efforts continued into the weekend and there were some pockets of homes that didnâ€™t have power until Sunday evening. On Saturday, a Hydro One press release indicated 6,000 Arnprior customers were affected by the outage. The power in White Lake was back on late Saturday and it was Sunday afternoon before electricity was restored to other areas of McNab-Braeside. Isolated areas of the county were still without power Monday afternoon. Hydro One says Thursdayâ€™s gusts of wind moved from southwestern Ontario to east-

Coun. Tim Tierney wants OC Transpo riders to be able to buy passes at kiosks at major transit hubs. Concerned with the monthly long lines at OC Transpo retail outlets such as the one at the Rideau Centre, the Beacon Hill-Cyrville councillor asked Ottawaâ€™s information technology staff to look into the possibility of setting up a few self-serve kiosks. â€œYou have a ďŹ ve-day period every month when there is a line-up out the door,â€? Tierney said. Since Tierney estimates that 95 per cent of those people are simply purchasing a monthly pass, he said it would speed up the process if they could use a self-serve kiosk instead. Tierney said the kiosks arenâ€™t likely to increase revenue for the city because the people who would be using them would still purchase passes anyway. Passes are already available for purchase at many locations besides OC Transpo outlets, including a great number of grocery and convenience stores. But Tierney said the kiosks are still a good proposal because: â€œI think we have to offer a good service to our residents.â€? During a meeting on April 18, the information technology subcommittee, which Tierney heads, agreed with the idea of investigating the possibility of installing kiosks. If city staff says the idea has potential, the information technology subcommittee could approve the kiosks. Tierney suggested a handful of the machines could be placed at major transit hubs, possibly at Rideau, Hurdman, St. Laurent, Bayshore and a south-end station.

It may make sense to re-name the Carp Road landﬁll site the West Carleton Environmental Centre, as is being done in the current proposal for the new landﬁll, because the site does have quite an environment. There are more than 100 plant species recorded on the site, ranging from the American Ostrich Fern to White Cedar to the White Trillium to Bittersweet Nightshade to Serviceberry to White Poplar to Pondweed to Spotted Jewelweed to Red Oak. However, of all of these species, there is only one recorded on site that is considered at risk and that is the Butternut tree. Of all of the plant species, there are no provincially or regionally rare native species among them. With regard to wildlife, there are 48 breeding season bird species recorded on site, including the Northern Shoveler, a
regionally rare species, and nine area-sensitive species. information provided by Waste Management in its Among the breeding season birds observed are the Green latest series of open houses regarding the ﬁrm’s Heron, Downy Woodpecker, Least Flycatcher, White-breast- pro-posal to develop a new landﬁll at the site. ed Nuthatch, American Redstart, Indigo Bunting and the Baltimore Oriole.

Among the non-breeding season birds observed are the Canada Goose, Herring Gull, Rock Pigeon, Horned Lark and Northern Cardinal.

Pickup taken, stolen BMW left behind CONST. PETER JEON Ottawa Police Service
Ottawa Police are urging people to lock their car doors after a BMW reported stolen from a Nepean home April 17 at around 10 a.m. mysteriously reappeared in a homeowner’s driveway on Galetta Side Road sometime during the overnight hours of Monday, April 18. When the homeowner looked closely into this matter, he discovered that some unidentiﬁed person had entered his house sometime after 10:30 p.m. Sunday through an unlock side door and lifted a set of truck keys that were left hanging on a hook on the wall. Strangely enough, the homeowner was unable to recall if his two dogs responded at all during the night and he was completely unaware of a stranger lurking around inside of his home. His stolen pickup truck was later found in a driveway on Burnt Lands Road where another truck was reported stolen. SO CLOSE TO HOME “Sir! Seriously, I live up the road and I just got my G2 today.” At least, that’s what the 20-year-old driver from Golden Line Road told the investigating ofﬁcer from the backseat of the cruiser as he was being charged with impaired driving. It was around 9 p.m. on Friday, April 15 when the car gradually left the roadway on March Road and drove in the ditch for about 100 metres where physics ﬁnally took over from the driver and stopped his Buick LeSabre dead in its tracks. As the driver fumbled around for his temporary driver’s licence, trying hard to focus through his glassy bloodshot eyes, a strong odour of alcohol bellowed out from his mouth, as he attempted to convince the investigating ofﬁcer that he had not been drinking and that everything was ﬁne. Through the use of the breathalyzer at the Huntmar police station, it was determined that the driver actually had consumed alcohol and, in fact, he had over 167 mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood. PEACE OF MIND CALL The key to a goodnight’s sleep is a peace of mind - free from mental stress or anxiety. Shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, police were called out to a home in the Abourbrook Estate’s area after a complainant returned home to discover that a trap door to the attic space had somehow been pushed open. Even through there weren’t any signs of forced entry into the house, the complainant felt unsafe and anxious. To remedy the situation and restore order inside of her mind, she decided to request police assistance and have them check it out. Eager to assist the homeowner in ﬁnding her happy place again, the ofﬁcer checked out the crawl space and inspected the home for intruders and found everything to be in order. Remember, when there is something strange going on in your neighbourhood, who you going to call? The Ottawa Police! MISCOMMUNICATION Problems cannot be solved without communication. And, when problems are created through a miscommunication, it can only be resolved by, you guessed it, communication. Ah, the circles of life. Through a breakdown in communication between her and her son, a complainant called police last Monday to report her van had recently been stolen out of the Carp Business Park sometime over the past hour and a half.
The complainant told police that she last saw her van at 6 a.m. Monday and when she returned to the parking lot at around 7:30 a.m., the van was gone. A short while later, as police were looking into this matter, the complainant called the dispatcher back up to say that her van had actually not been stolen and that through some miscommunication her son had moved the van to another parking spot without telling her. WEST CARLETON OUT OF THE WOODS? Week 16 and things are pretty quiet on the deer front. West Carleton and Rideau-Goulbourn made it through another week with only a single deer collision each. The total score now stands at 50 to 18, still in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. CANOE FOUND A homeowner called police April 17 after a canoe washed up on shore last Saturday afternoon on Bayview Drive in Constance Bay. If anyone is missing a ﬁberglass canoe from the Buckham’s Bay side of the Constance Bay, please get in contact with the West Carleton CPC or the CBBCA Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator for more information. Constance Bay and Buckham’s Bay boat owners are encouraged to register their water crafts with the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association for easier recovery and reporting. EARLY VISITOR Jensen Crescent, Carp Village: A complainant called police April 16 after a suspicious female rang his doorbell on Jensen Crescent in Carp Village at around 6 a.m. asking how to get to Katimavik. Greeting the intoxicated female at the doorway was the complainant’s two kids who excitedly ran to answer the door upon hearing the unexpected early morning ring. Uncomfortable with the female’s unusual behavior of patting his kids on the head, he told her to leave the house. The female is described as non-white, early 20s, 5’ 10” tall, black hair, slim build, and was wearing a black leather bomber style jacket and blue jeans. She was last seen running barefoot towards a trail that leads to the Glenncastle and Francis Colbert area. It was later learned the female was an unwelcomed guest at a loud house party on Glenncastle Drive and that she had taken off on foot before the taxi arrived on scene.
Patrol ofﬁcers in the West Carleton area responded to 42 general calls for service from the public April 15 to 21. In addition to the calls for service, patrol ofﬁcers are also proactively enforced the Highway Trafﬁc laws, responded to false 9-1-1 and alarm calls, and assisted Ottawa ﬁre, paramedics and bylaw services.

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - May 5 2011
Tories must allow for compromise Stephen Harper’s appeal to the voters to deliver him a majority government did not fall on deaf ears. The Conservatives picked up 167 seats– an increase of 24 seats. The Tory tide once again swept across Ottawa and the Valley, with Conservatives retaining their seats in Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (Scott Reid), Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke (Cheryl Gallant), Carleton-Mississippi Mills (Gordon O’Connor) and Leeds-Grenville (Gord Brown). The anticipated surge of NDP support did not hurt the Tories, except in a few ridings in Quebec, where most of the seats picked up by the party were taken from the Bloc Quebecois and Liberals. During the campaign, the prime minister warned Canadians that a minority Tory government couldn’t hold on to power and would fall prey to a coalition of the Liberals, NDP or potentially the Bloc Quebecois. Harper’s predictions were alarming with warnings of hits to the ﬁnancial markets, deﬁcit spending and possibly reopening the Constitution for another divisive debate that nobody wanted.
Canadians obviously listened, and Harper no longer faces the spectre of having to compromise or work to achieve consensus with the opposition. But is that necessarily a good thing? Yes, a majority government will give the Tories the tools to pass legislation that could have been delayed by a united opposition. And as Tory MP Gordon O’Connor pointed out, a majority win will allow the Conservatives to stand down from continuous preparation for yet another election, and focus on the task of governing. But when they were a minority government, the Tories were forced to listen to the ideas of other parties and to compromise. The politics of consensus forces a leader to sift through the ideas of competing parties and incorporate the best parts within his or her own policies. We hope winning a majority won’t go to Harper’s head. The Tories often use the word “arrogance” to explain the federal Liberals fall in fortune. They might want to avoid a similar accusation over the next four years. Be a good prime minister, Harper.
A winter game for all seasons Many factors go into making Canada the unique country it is, as recent political events have shown. On a non-political level, we have Tim Hortons and the Group of Seven and a large group of comedians located in the United States. We have football with three downs. We have three coasts and at least two seasons. We have many languages and very few species of deadly snakes. We have movie theatres that don’t show Canadian movies. Oh, wait, other countries have those too. One of the other non-political things that has been commented upon lately is that fact that our hockey season, the season for a winter game played on ice, now lasts into June. In fact, one estimate puts the last possible Stanley Cup ﬁnal game as late as June 18. This has consequences that go far beyond sport. Coupled with daylight saving time, it means that many Canadians will be indoors in the air-conditioning watching television while the sun is still shining and they could be outside playing games and getting ﬁt. It also means that a goodly percentage of Canadians, those who avidly follow playoff games played on the west coasts
CHARLES GORDON Funny Town of Canada and the U.S., show up for work tired and grouchy, or not show up at all. Productivity, a major concern of newspaper columnists, declines. Furthermore, children of permissive parents who avidly follow games played on the west coast will be difﬁcult in class unless, mercifully, they fall asleep. This may explain why our children are constantly outperformed by children who come from countries where there is no hockey. These are some of the important social and economic consequences of our obsession with hockey and the hockey owners’ obsession with dragging out the season as long as possible in order to make more money. As we see from the world news, in most other countries, spring is a time for

getting the crops in, playing baseball and staging insurrections. Not here. Which just goes to show that there is more to the Canadian identity than an unelected Senate and the notwithstanding clause. If the hockey nuttiness ended here, you could put it down to a mild case of national eccentricity — people staying up too late, watching TV when they could be strolling in the spring evening air when it’s not raining. But, unfortunately, there is more to it. For at the same time as the rest of the world is having revolutions, spring planting and baseball games, those Canadians who venture outdoors, are playing hockey. But they’re not playing hockey with a ice and a puck. They’re playing hockey with pavement and a ball. Ball hockey interest peaks in the spring because all those boys and girls and their parents want to try out the moves they see on television, except for the hitting from behind and elbows to the head. So out they go onto the street, between televised games, just as the professional hockey season is winding down and many hockey players, in fact, are out on the golf course. This typically Canadian scene causes cars to be inconvenienced
and the more fussy neighbours to be upset, leading in turn to another uniquely Canadian phenomenon — the complaint to city hall and the police raid on street hockey nets. If you lived in Lusaka, Jakarta or Paris, you would not be aware of any of this. The streets of those cities are notable for their absence of hockey nets. In Canada, the police raids on outdoor hockey nets lead to letters to the editor, phone calls to talk radio shows and a lot of public hand-wringing generally. The rights of kids (and their parents) to have fun are weighed against the right of private property and a uniquely Canadian philosophical battle ensues.

OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE
Patrol ofﬁcers in the West Carleton area responded to 62 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of April 22 to 28. Yes. Your calls really do make a difference. And here is where your intuitions turn into dividends for the community. On Tuesday, April 26, at around 6 p.m., a caller from the March Rural area called police to report a suspicious incident after he came across four motorcycles that were left unattended near some bushes on Klondike Road. Unknown to the caller was the fact that sometime during the overnight hours on Monday unidentiﬁed thieves broke into an Ottawa Safety Council storage container and stole six motorcycles. At around 10 a.m. on Tuesday police were dispatched to the Alcatel parking lot at 600 March Road for a theft incident. Because the caller listened to his gut instincts tell him that something deﬁnitely wasn’t right and he acted on it by calling police to investigate this odd situation, the Ottawa Safety Council now has four of the six stolen motorcycles returned to
them, intact. Undoubtedly, if the caller tried to reason it away by telling himself that the owners were walking in the woods or something like that, the thieves would have returned by nightfall, once the bikes have “cooled down,” and carted the bikes away. Always remember, you are the eyes and ears in the neighbourhood. Together we can make a difference. SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Ah, rural policing! There is always some goings on that will get you out of the routine grind. On Thursday, April 27, patrol ofﬁcers were called out to assist a farmer with an injured Alpaca after it had become entangled in some fencing. Perhaps grateful for their assistance, the Alpaca decided against spitting on the ofﬁcers. SPOKE TOO SOON? Last week the question was asked if West Carleton was ﬁnally out of the woods with deer collisions. Well, apparently not. Week 17 and four more deer collisions were registered on the counters for both West Car-
leton and Rideau-Goulbourn. The total score now stands at 52 to 20, still in favor of RideauGoulbourn.

shaggy dirty blond hair and an unshaven beard. At the time he was wearing a pair of sunglasses. The truck was described as a newer model white heavy duty pickup truck.
SUSPICIOUS April 22, 1196 Old Carp Road, March Rural: Shortly before 8 p.m. on Friday, police and ﬁre services were dispatched to Old Carp Road for a report of a residential ﬁre after neighbours spotted ﬂames and smoke coming from the sofﬁts and called 911. As police ofﬁcers arrived on scene ﬁre ﬁghters were already in the midst of battling the single family home blaze. Ofﬁcers reported observing ﬂames and heavy smoke pouring out of the roof. The ﬁre was quickly brought under control; however, the home was extensively damaged and the couple was left homeless. No one was at home at the time of the blaze. April 23, Klondike Road, March Rural: Police and ﬁre services were called out to the area of March Valley Road and Klondike Road, shortly after 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, after a driver called 911 to report that his car was on ﬁre. While driving along March Valley Road the driver noticed smoke coming from underneath the engine hood. When he popped
TRAFFIC April 26, Pleasant Creek Drive, West Carleton: A complainant called police to report a suspicious incident after she started to notice that the same vehicle would turn around in her driveway on a regular basis and park on the street in front of her house. The complainant stated that the white Chevy Malibu would remain parked on the street for a short while before driving off. The complainant was able to provide the call center with a licence plate number of the vehicle for further investigation. April 27, Old Almonte Road, West Carleton: While out for a late morning jog on Wednesday a complainant reported that a white pickup truck had slowly passed her by several times on Old Almonte Road with the driver starring at her and her kids. Sensing the suspicious nature of this event the complainant took action by reporting it to the OPS Call Center for tracking purposes. The driver was described as a white male, 40-50 years old, with
April 25, Langstaff Drive, Carp Village: At around noon on Monday a 911-caller reported observing a black Ford F150 pickup truck, with four teens inside, pulling two kids on skateboards. The caller was unable to record the licence plate number and the truck left the area before police arrived on scene. April 25, Ridgeside Farm Drive, March Rural: A concerned citizen called the OPS Call Center to report an ongoing problem with young kids driving around on the roadway in a golf cart. The caller stated that the kids would often drive at unsafe speeds with as many as seven kids hanging onto the cart. The kids are believes to be around 12 years of age.

DAN PLOUFFE With her racing schedule all set to begin Sunday, May 8 in Monterrey, Mexico for the ﬁrst triathlon World Cup event of her career, Carp’s Joanna Brown is hoping that the road less traveled leads to only one thing this season – the title of world junior champion. Tremendous athletic ability already separates Brown from just about all of her peers, but the direction the 18year-old has chosen – to dedicate every part of her life towards being the best swimmer, cyclist and runner possible – even differs from the vast majority of top athletes her age. Brown turned down scholarship offers to several top NCAA running schools and took an extra year to complete Grade 12 at All Saints Catholic High School so she could spend more time training. “For an 18-year-old, it’s kind of a scary situation,” explains Greg Kealey, Brown’s coach with the Bytown Storm triathlon club. “You’re not going to university or following the path that 99 per cent of people you know follow, or probably the path your parents just assumed you were going to do from the time you were one or two. “To make those choices is not easy. She’s one of the few that’s not scared to say, ‘This is what I want.’” Kealey identiﬁes that bold trait as one of the major reasons Brown’s been so successful, highlighted by her bronze medal performance at last fall’s world junior championships in Hungary. Brown does plan to study at either Ottawa or Guelph universities this fall, although it likely won’t be in her preferred sciences programs because she’d have to miss too many labs for triathlon competitions. The way Brown sees it, she can pursue school any time, but the chance to become world junior champion – and an Olympian further down the road – can only happen right now. “I’m going for gold this year,” states Brown, who will be the only competitor in the Sept. 7-11 event in Beijing to already own a world junior medal since last year’s gold and silver medallists are now above the eligible age. “It’s going to be mine. That race is the one I’m looking forward to most.” Since completing her ﬁnal exams in January, Brown’s been fully devoted to her sport. The usual daily schedule includes a 6 a.m. swim with the Ravens of Carleton club, a cycle with the a Kunstadt Sports riding group, and a run with Kealey biking at her side to make sure that she’s hitting speed targets. “It’s hard sometimes,” Brown says. “It’s my main fo-

It’s important to go home to relax, letes at the Monterrey World Cup. “If all goes well, she’ll spend time with her family, watch TV and wind down to be able to express her consistency and her strength throughout the year, which is really what we’re after.” avoid burning out, she notes. “Because we’re doing so much training, you’re really on the brink of overtraining most of the time,” Brown adds. “You’re always pushing, but there’s always that edge where you’ll get knocked down if you go over it, but if you stay right on the edge, you’ll have great results.” After stepping on a rock and dislocating the cuboid bone in her foot, Brown had to take some time off from running recently. But in general, Brown’s responded well to increased volume, mileage and intensity in her training sessions as she transitions towards the full 1.5-kilometre swim, 40-km bike and 10-km run she’ll face all the time next year when she graduates from the junior circuit (where races are only half that distance). “She handles it really well,” Kealey notes. “Sometimes you have to kind of pull back the reigns more than anything.” Brown feels good about her ﬁtness heading into the ﬁrst competition of the season, Reigning world junior bronze medallist Joanna Brown wants the top but has no idea where that’ll put her since it’s been so long since she’s raced, and it’ll step of the podium this year.

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

the ULTIMATE Summer Fun & Camp Guide • Summer 2011 Hundreds of reasons why every child should go to camp By Matt Barr of Camps Canada Why go to camp? Here’s a partial list of the many reasons:
Every child should go to camp to: • make new friends (the number one outcome cited by children who attend camp) • learn new physical skills (arts and crafts, sports, swimming, waterskiing, archery) • learn new social skills (communication, leadership, teamwork) • gain an appreciation of people’s different abilities
• see positive adult role models in a fun environment
• create life-long friendships
• enjoy being a kid and clowning around
• experience a community where everyone is welcome regardless of race, colour or religion
• gain a greater sense of personal satisfaction and personal habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle
• experience the freedom to make choices, decisions, and mistakes
• learn how to swim (many camps provide daily swimming opportunities)
• trust their own instincts and gain a sense of independence
• do chores without being paid (kids help to clean up after lunch and to keep the camp area clean)
• receive praise for who she is and what she has accomplished (counselors do this all the time)
• have fun
• have one outstanding teacher (we have lots of the non-academic kind here)
• turn off the television for a week (there are no TV’s at most camps)
(we are all gifted in some way or another) • experience the feelings of love, safety, and security
• to gain leadership skills (within a group of their peers)
