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 derek.dunn@metroland.com

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.

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.

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 sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Thursday afternoon’s powerful winds wreaked havoc across much of Arnprior, McNab-Braeside and West Carleton. Downed trees, power lines and 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 didn’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 Thursday’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 Ottawa’s information technology staff to look into the possibility of setting up a few self-serve kiosks. “You 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 aren’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: “I 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.

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

Opinion

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.

CONST. PETER JEON

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.

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-

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)

A camp experience is without equal. Even those campers who during the school year have behavioural problems, difficulty concentrating or who cannot relate well to their peers are highly successful. How is all of this accomplished in a recreational/educational setting that is overseen by a few camping professionals, but is administered for the most part by high school and university students. The answer is complex; however, the key to the success of camp is that all its efforts are focused on the individual and not on the program. The program is the tool. The medium is the out of doors; the strategy is to earn the trust of the child in order to make the experience positive, non-threatening, creative and enjoyable. The camping community has long realized that when a child is placed in a trusting, nurturing environment devoid of the pressure to pass or fail and without competition, the motivation to learn is greatly increased. Each summer it is evident by the smiles on their faces, and the laughter we hear that campers are extremely happy in the camp environment. They learn to be self reliant, cooperative, understanding and sensitive. continued on page 21

Hundreds of reasons…

them to take risks, experiment, challenge themselves and learn from these trials. Day to day they face a multitude of real life situations for which they find their own solutions or work closely with others to resolve them.

By Matt Barr of Camps Canada

They develop logical thinking. They assume various roles within the group based upon their strengths. They are better able to make choices for themselves that meet their needs and the needs of others. They become part of a community as they get caught up in the enthusiastic displays of spirit and singing that make camp distinct. Moreover, without realizing it they develop skills that relate directly to academic subjects such as geography, mathematics, kinesiology, meteorology, biology, natural sciences and languages.

Their ability to communicate with their peers and their leaders is enhanced. They learn to accept and appreciate individual differences and are willing to reach out to assist others or allow themselves to be helped. Through challenging and creative activities they develop skills that will be useful as they cope with everyday life.

where people recognize and accept that all of us have varying abilities and talents. In so doing, each participant can applaud the efforts of peers. Feeling that support, the young person is willing to attempt more complex and challenging activities without the fear of failure. In this environment the “poor student” has an opportunity for recognition and leadership that may otherwise be denied. Camp is for every child regardless of talent and ability. The American Camping Association (ACA) studies report that people who participate in camping and recreation experiences are healthier and have fewer problems as a result of their experiences. Similar findings would be expected for Canada. The largest research study of camper outcomes ever conducted in the United States asked over 5,000 families about positive identity and social skills acquired at camp:

CAMPERS SAY • Camp helped me make new friends. (96%) • Camp helped me get to know other campers who were different from me. (94%) • Camp helped me feel good about myself. (92%)

As part of a relatively small group they make friendships and establish bonds that will last a lifetime.

From each experience they become more self confident and develop an increased self esteem which allows them to continue to reach out and look for more. All this in a fun-filled, stress free environment.

The trust that is established allows

Camp is a place where strengths are reinforced,

• My child gained self-confidence at camp. (70%)

continued from page 20

• At camp, I did things I was afraid to do at first. (74%)

PARENTS SAY • My child remains in contact with friends made at camp. (69%)

The Loft School of Art & Dance 455303

• My child continues to participate in activities learned at camp. (63%)

SUMMER CAMPS

Camps are uniquely positioned to provide all of these developmental needs for children. Consider camp as the perfect partner to family, school, and community youth activities in helping your child learn independence, decision-making, social and emotional skills, character building and values - all in an atmosphere of creativity and enrichment under the supervision of positive adult role models.

Acting, Dancing, Art (set design), Costume Design, & tons of drama games. The children present an entire MUSICAL in one week!!! Each week is a different musical. The final presentation is truly exceptional.

In today’s pressure-oriented society, camp provides a non-threatening environment for Canada’s youth to be active, to develop competence in life skills, to learn about and enhance their own abilities and to benefit from meaningful participation in a community designed just for them.

The camp experience is recognized by child development professionals as valuable in helping children mature socially, emotionally, intellectually, morally, and physically.

ADVICE FROM THE EXPERTS

“The building blocks of self-esteem are belonging, learning, and contributing,” says Michael Popkin, family therapist and founder of Active Parenting. “The biggest plus of camp is that camps help young people discover and explore their talents, interests, and values. Most schools don’t satisfy all these needs. Kids who have had these kinds of (camp) experiences end up being healthier and have less problems which concern us all.” continued on page 22

“At camp, children learn to problem-solve, make social adjustments to new and different people, learn responsibility, and gain new skills to increase their self-esteem,” says author/education Peter Scales of The Search Institute. Noted experts in child development have expressed their thoughts on summer camp as a valuable resource for giving children the value of belonging to a community of their own. This critically important sense of community for children is rooted in enabling and empowering children to be belonging, cooperating, contributing, and caring citizens. “Each summer at camp a unique setting is created, a community is constructed that allows participants to get in touch with a sense of life that is larger than one’s self,” says Bruce Muchnick, licensed psychologist who works extensively with day and resident camps. “The camp community seeks to satisfy children’s basic need for connectedness, affiliation, belonging, acceptance, safety, and feelings of acceptance and appreciation.” “It is in the crucible of this community that children gain self-esteem with humility, overcome their inflated sense of self, and develop a lifelong sense of grace and wonder,” says Bob Differ, licensed clinical social worker specializing in child and adolescent treatment.

speaker and consultant to the camp profession. “In this less pressured atmosphere, children learn more readily what positive things to say and do when they make mistakes and face challenges.” He says the traditions and customs of each different camp are like a secret code that allows those who know it to feel embraced by something unique and special. “Campers are urged to include, not exclude, others. They are praised for choosing new partners and not always the same ones. “They are encouraged to respect the differences between people. In an increasingly sarcastic, putdown oriented world, camps aim to be an oasis of personal safety where demeaning comments and disrespectful behavior are not tolerated, and children are taught responsible and positive ways to resolve conflicts.” • excerpts extracted from the American Camp Association website at: http://www.acacamps.org Matt Barr is the owner of Camps Canada, a summer camp based in Ottawa, Ontario. As a voice for Canadian Camp Owners and Camp Directors, Matt is a frequent guest on radio and television programs across the country discussing the latest trends and issues in summer camps.

Hicks recommends www.tctrail.ca, an online resource detailing the 400 cross–country nature–rich trails that comprise the Trans Canada Trail. 2. Avoid the hat dance: “As a mom, I know getting youngsters to keep their sun–protecting hats on can be a struggle,” said Victoria Kirk, Old Navy spokesperson. To help avoid what she calls the “hat dance” Kirk advises allowing kids to pick their own favourite topper. Choose from a family assortment including stylish wide brim, baby chin–strap, colourful ball hats and more, starting from under $10 at Old Navy (www.oldnavy.ca).

Eight-year-old Morgan Anderson Bain of West Carleton had been growing her hair for a number of years so she could donate it to make wigs for children with cancer. Morgan had 12 inches of her 18-inchlong hair chopped off on April 21, at a hair cutting party at Jask Salon & Day Spa in Kanata. “I thought it would be nice to,” said the Grade 3 student at Huntley Centennial Public School. “I feel sad for the kids who have no hair and I just wanted to help them out.” Morgan was trying to collect a mile’s worth of hair to donate, along with money, to help make wigs for children who lose their hair during cancer treatments. As of early last week, she had managed to collect a minimum of 120 inches, or 0.00189 of a mile. Although she didn’t hit a mile’s worth of hair, she managed to surpass her fundraising aim. The West Carleton resident upped her goal to $1,000 after she far surpassed her original target of $500. Last Thursday, she had 18 girls willing to lop off their locks, with participants coming from as far away as Cornwall and Gloucester/Cumberland. In all, $2,276 was raised for the cause. “It’s amazing that so many people have come forward to help Morgan,” said Morgan’s mother, Cathy. The cut hair is being donated to Angel Hair for Kids and Pantene Beautiful – both organizations that make wigs for children battling cancer. Angel Hair for Kids provides wigs and hair loss solutions to financially disad-

vantaged children in Canada who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment. Using hair that is donated to the program, the foundation can create wigs and hair systems and provide them at no cost to the child’s family. It takes 10 to 12 donated ponytails to make one hair prosthesis and $800 to $1,000 is budgeted by the foundation to cover manufacturing and related costs. Pantene Beautiful Lengths wigs are created and distributed for free through select American Cancer Society wig banks across the country. “One takes a minimum of 10 inches and one takes a minimum of eight so we picked both,” said Cathy. Morgan had been talking about donating her hair since she was only four years old, said her mom. “She was always saying she would give her hair to those who couldn’t grow hair,” said Cathy, who added she was extremely proud of her daughter for taking on the cause. “She’s actually been saying it for a long time.” Morgan said she found out about the cause after seeing a commercial for CHEO on TV. Since then, it’s been her goal to donate her hair to the cause. “I’m hoping that a lot of the kids get the wigs soon,” said Morgan, who plays hockey for the Kanata Rangers Novice B team. “Maybe it will be a nice Easter present.” One her website, Morgan wrote, “I cut my bangs once and that was scary, but not as scary as cancer must be.” Her reason and motto for why she’s cutting her hair is simple. “Because we can, because we care.” For more information, visit Morgan’s website at www.morgansmile.ca.

What we’d give if we could say, Hi Dad, in the same old way; To hear your voice, and see your smile, To sit with you and chat awhile. So if you have a father, Cherish him with care, For you’ll never know the heartache, Till you see his vacant chair.

Good memories Are what you bring to mind Drifting back in thought That’s what we find

Hi Granny and Grampa We miss you!!

Gaëtanne Grandmaison

If Yellow Roses grow in Heaven

So many good times We’ve had with you And many more years To look forward to

If yellow roses grow in heaven Lord please pick a bunch for us. Place them in our mother’s arms and tell her they’re from all of us.

When we spend time together We want you to know We enjoy your company so much We don’t want to go What we’re trying to tell you You may already know You’re an important part in our lives And we hope this we show

Happy 85th Birthday, Dad!

Happy Mother’s Day Granny

Love always, your “Dolly”

CL24441

See you Tuesday Love Blakelee and Laughlin

Because remembering her is easy we do it every day, but there is an ache in our hearts that will never go away.

Happy Mother’s Day CL24280

CL24413

With love from: Glenn, Maureen and Krystin Lynn and Dan

Tell her we love her and miss her. When she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.

Although I’ve only known you for a short while, You always know how to make me smile. You’ve shown me how to garden, You’ve taught me my “pleases” and pardons. I’ve waited for this day, to stand up and shout and say, “Hey this is my Nanny, Gracie L’Abbe”.

We love you Mama, Always and forever. All our love, Marcel, Devon, Nathalie, Neil, Vanessa, Jack and Alexa CL19576
