Heat alert, another storm expected Authorities concerned a heat wave will generate a destructive wind and lightning storm John.carter@metroland.com

ON TRACK City council gives green light for revised light rail design. Plans move forward for construction of rail line.

A potentially record-breaking heat wave is raising concerns there could be an encore this week of Sunday’s destructive wind and lightning storm. It is also prompting health officials to urge people, especially seniors, to take steps to protect themselves against the high heat

and humidity. With the temperature predicted to hit 37 degrees Thursday, July 21, there is the potential of a repeat of the storm that overturned trees, knocked out power and flattened the main stage at Bluesfest Sunday evening. The cottagers of Marshall’s Bay in the Galetta area were particularly hard hit Sunday. “I haven’t seen anything like it,” said Hy-

dro One’s Paul Murphy, who was called in to help restore power to the stricken area. “It looked like a bomb went off.” Murphy said surprisingly only one poweroutage call was received by Hydro One from Marshall’s Bay. So when he went in Tuesday morning with a crew from Guelph, he was shocked to find the extent of the damage. STORM, see 4

COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

This summer, kids can become masters of disguise, learn how to create and decipher codes, and travel 27 metres below the earth to explore Canada’s Cold War Museum. The Diefenbunker is offering a spy camp to kids between the ages of seven to 12, with weeks full of various activities. Natalie Zacharewski is the programming supervisor for the camp, and she said they listened to feedback from last year and created age appropriate programming. Camps are now divided up by age groups; one week serves seven to nine year olds, and the next is for those ages 10 to 12. “It allows us to focus on what the kids’ abilities are and to really challenge them here,” Zacharewski said. “They have so much fun when they’re engaging in something geared towards their own age group.” From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., youngsters can descend into the Diefenbunker for games, activities and experiments while learning about real live spies. “We teach them that there really was someone like James

Bond; there really was someone like Inspector Gadget,” said Zcharewski. “It really helps when they can make connections with their own lives.” One thing the kids have trouble with at first is the lack of windows in the Diefenbunker, but they get used to it quickly. “We call it a submarine under the earth, instead of under the water,” Zacharewski said. From July 11 to 15, the camp theme was Making and Breaking Codes. Campers got to use a large cipher wheel to make and break codes. They also came up with their own secret spy names. “You can call me Shadow Zero,” said nine-year-old camper Ryan Parnell. Some other spy names included Deadly Killer for nine-year old Curtis Proulx; Black Dot for Curtis’ older brother Dylan Proulx, aged 11; and Alcatraz for nine-year-old Benjamin Glauser. At the end of the week, parents are invited to a graduation ceremony where kids can show off their spy headquarters, and are given a spy badge with their name and photo on it. Upcoming themes for the camp include Master of Disguise; Investigation: The Hunt

Kinburn Berries harvests bumper crop Higher than average yield at the local berry farm COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

After a short but sweet season, Kinburn Berries is harvesting the last of their raspberries at their roadside farm on Kinburn Side Road. First came the strawberries right around Father’s Day. Just as that crop began to wane, up popped the raspberries. The Hawley family owns and operates the farm, including Gail, her husband Murray, and their three sons who are in university but come home to lend a hand come planting time. They bought the 16 hectares of land in 2005 and began their first season in 2006. Raspberries take three years of growth before they are ready to be harvested, and last year was the first crop ready for picking. This year saw an even higher yield than anticipated. “It was a bumper crop,” Gail Hawley said. Meaning? “There was loads.”

The heavy rain falls West Carleton saw this spring and early summer led to troubles for the roads, but ended up helping the raspberries to ripen earlier than expected. Kinburn Berries delivers a daily dose of berries to Dunrobin Meat and Grocery, and were looking to expand their business to other stores this year, but were unable to strike any deals. “They (stores) were getting in a lot of berries from the States for a cheap price and we can’t compete with that,” Hawley said. “It’s kind of sad at this time of year when there are so many berry farms around. It would be nice if we could put our local produce in our local stores.” She added that she understands that larger corporations don’t always have much choice about their produce selection. When the Hawley’s took over the farm, they built the large barn that now stands front and centre so they could store their equipment inside. The previous family owned the farmhouse next door, but the Hawley’s live on Panmure Road and needed somewhere to house their machinery. Eventually, the Hawleys

Gail was born in Kinburn; Murray in Arnprior. Kinburn Berries grows v-star strawberries, a special strain that yields a smaller, sweeter berry, and harvests earlier than traditional strawberries. They sell two types of raspberries; boyne and killarney. Although they have been in

the business for a few years now, Hawley said there is still room for improvement. “It’s been a learning experience,” she said. “Every year we learn something we can do better to make it a little easier.” Kinburn Berries will still be selling berries for another week or so until their raspberries run dry, and then we will just have to wait until next Father’s Day.

News

Cottage residents appeal to city, feds, for emergency funding for repairs STORM, from 1 Many large white pine trees were either snapped off or uprooted. The crew had to cut through the debris on the road to access the area. With several other crews called into to help, Hydro One had power restored to the area by late afternoon Tuesday, to the amazement of residents. When the Hydro One crews finally left, there was a convoy of about 15 to 20 trucks departing from the small riverside cottage community. With the road opened, local councillor Eli El-Chantiry and MP Gordon O’Connor toured the area Tuesday. The residents are appealing to the City of Ottawa and the federal government for emergency funding to repair the extensive damage. Hydro One also had to deal with four hydro poles snapped off on Galetta Side Road. The winds also reportedly blew down a covered shelter at the Dean farm, which lost a silo last year. Another farm structure was blown over near the corner of Dwyer Hill and Galetta Side roads. After a sweltering day, the sudden arrival through the Upper Ottawa Valley of a cold front created winds of greater than 100 km-h. Sunday’s storm, which was particularly violent along the Ottawa River, took many people by surprise, as it had been predicted to arrive about midnight, not 7 p.m. In the Shawville area, it was reported a cat died when picked up and tossed about by the wild winds. In some rural areas of West Carleton and Lanark County, power wasn’t restored until Tuesday afternoon. Mississippi Mills fire chief Art Brown reports his crews had a busy Sunday. Two big trees blew down in the powerful wind, blocking County Road 16 for a time. Power lines were also knocked down on Quarry Road and the Montgomery area. Firefighters were also called to a motorcycle crash in Clayton and to help rescue a two-year-old who had accidently been left in a running car by a parent. Brown warned that today (Thursday) could be another busy day. “If we get the extreme weather they’re predicting, look out,” he said. STAGE TOPPLED

HEAT WARNING Meanwhile, area health units upgraded their heat alerts is-

sued last Friday to a warning Tuesday. The health unit warns the extreme heat and humidity could potentially cause dehydration, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and, in some cases, death. While everyone is at risk, the release states, those in greatest danger include the elderly, people with chronic illness, infants and young children, and those involved in physical activity or strenuous work for prolonged periods. The health unit is urging the public to check on neighbours, friends or others they know who may be at greater risk from the heat. Several precautions are also advised, including: not to leave children, pets or adults in parked cars; drink plenty of water and pure fruit juices; avoid alcohol, coffee and cola; wear a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors; keep window shades and drapes drawn; cool down at a local pool, in a cool shower, or air-conditioned space; and avoid eating heavy meals and using your oven. If you experience the following symptoms, you are advised to seek medical help: nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, rapid or difficult breathing, severe headache or confusion, convulsion and fever.

People at Ottawa’s Bluesfest mill about after the stage collapsed from a wind storm.

474640

The same violent storm toppled the largest stage at Bluesfest Sunday, injuring at least five people, one seriously. The storm with wind gusts of more than 100 km-h struck just before 7:30 p.m. on the last day of Bluesfest, prematurely ending

the festival. Headliners Cheap Trick were about 20 minutes into their set, playing on the MBNA stage, when the sky to the north suddenly blackened. Many watching Cheap Trick were unaware of the storm gathering behind them, when other festival-goers began to move towards shelter in response to the lightning and rain moving toward them. That is, until a ferocious wind blew in from the river, stripping leaves and limbs from trees, overturning chairs and other smaller items, and kicking up a dust storm. Cheap Trick had just finished it biggest hit, I Want You to Want Me, when the MBNA stage suddenly started to sway in the wind. Fortunately for the audience, the gusts blew the stage backwards away from them. When it crashed to the ground, at least five people were injured. Three men were taken to hospital, including one who received life-threatening injuries when he was punctured by flying debris. The Cheap Trick band members managed to escape injury, although it was a close call. Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, who had presented the original Bluesfest board members with certificates of appreciation on the stage just prior to the Cheap Trick concert, was apparently still in the area, but escaped unscathed. The violent wind and sudden destruction of the stage stunned the large audience. A few rabblerousers start cheering briefly before realizing just how serious the situation had become with the winds threatening other structures and the lightning moving closer. However, the main element discouraging the more adventuresome in the crowd from heading to the rubble was the torrential downpour that quickly followed the wind. The large crowd started rushing to the exits to escape the nature’s wrath. Some found refuge in and around the War Museum, while others scurried to their cars or buses. Bus drivers hurried people aboard, fare or no fare, telling them “we have to get you out of here.” Within minutes, police, fire and ambulance were rushing to the scene and Bluesfest officials called an end to the evening’s activities and ordered the grounds vacated. Among the entertainers cancelled were guitarist Joe Satriani, Galactic and Death Cab for Cutie.

Ham enthusiasts explore the world over the radio COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

Last summer, Al Penney, president of the West Carleton Amateur Radio Club, drove through a rural Ontario town with other club members searching for a good spot to set up their equipment. They stumbled upon the perfect hill, and pulled into a nearby farm to ask permission to set up shop. “The farmer came out, all grizzled and weather-beaten,” said Penney. “I’m about to launch into an explanation and he looks at us and says, ‘Wanna use the hill for the contest, do ya?’ My jaw dropped, and then I noticed he was wearing an amateur radio hat.” Ham radio is still a popular method of communication around the world, said Penney. “I regularly talk to the South Pole,” said Carp resident Ken Asmus who is the club treasurer. “Australia is fairly simple to contact. Europe is a daily event. There is really no limit; you can talk to someone any place on the planet, or even out in space.” Amateur radio technology is not obsolete and is in fact progressing all the time. One member of the WCARC, Bert Zauhar, has mastered the art of moon-bouncing – ricocheting radio signals off of the moon to speak to someone on Earth. Signals can also be bounced off the northern lights, airplanes, or meteors. Any astronaut who ascends into space is required to get a ham radio license, because when all other methods of communication fail, the radio won’t. The International Space Station has a permanent ham radio that is used quite often, Asmus said. “From our radios from home, we’re able to talk to an astronaut in space,” he said. Not only can hams communicate with humans in space, they can also listen to transmissions from planets. Radio astronomy is the study of the radio frequencies emitted by celestial objects. Jupiter, for example, transmits radio waves that sound like waves crashing against the shore. Penney said that the most interesting part about being a ham is not knowing who you will reach at the other end of the

radio. “If you talk to someone on amateur radio, you don’t know if it’s a 12-year-old kid or a Nobel Prize winner,” Penney said. Graham Ide is a member of the club who has been doing amateur radio for 50 years. “One problem these days is that it (amateur radio) doesn’t seem to be attracting as many people as it used to because of cell phones and the internet,” Ide said. To deal with this issue, Penney has been trying to recruit young blood into the hobby. He volunteers with the Smiths Falls Air Cadets and teaches them why ham radio is still useful today. “People will say, ‘You just spoke to someone in China, big deal, I can do that on my cell phone,’” Penney said. “And I look at them and say, ‘Alright, dial me a number and talk to someone in China right now.’” And of course they can’t. “But they’re missing the bigger point which is that cell phones use billions of dollars of communications infrastructure so you can talk to someone in China. I just did it with something that’s using less power than a 100 watt light bulb, using my own radio, my own antenna that Courtney Symons photo I built, talking to a guy in China who is Carp’s Ken Asmus smiles amongst the radio equipment he has set up in a trailer to using the same equipment as I am.” participate in an amateur radio contest in June.

Cliff Wardle practices his putting at the first annual Strokes for Emilie Inspirational Golf Classic on July 15 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club in Kanata. The tournament raised money for cystic fibrosis, the disease that cut Emilie Joinette’s life short.

FRIDAY

Emilie would be proud COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

One of Emilie Joinette’s trademark expressions was “Life – live it, then give it.” She wore those words on a bracelet around her wrist, and exemplified them in her everyday actions. And, after she passed away at the age of 22 from complications due to her cystic fibrosis in 2009, her family and friends are still living by that message. The first annual Strokes for Emilie Inspirational Golf Classic was held on July 15 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club in Stittsville and was a huge success, raising over $10,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Emilie’s mother Jeanne Joinette, a Kanata resident, said she was so pleased when Emilie’s longtime friend Andrew Wayling suggested the tournament about a year ago. “We want to be able to pay it forward, because it’s what she would want us to be doing,” Joinette said. The golf tournament included a silent auction, a dinner, and various raffle prizes. One of the auctioned items was a personalized goalie helmet adorned with Winnie the Pooh, one of Emilie’s childhood favourites, and particularly fitting since she had been a goalie herself. A caricature drawing of Emilie surrounded by some of her favourite sayings was also up for bid. “Emilie’s thumbprint is all over this event,” said Nadine Redman, the eastern Ottawa regional director of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. “Her touch is everywhere. She is very much here.” Redman has two sons with CF, now aged 13 and 16. When her firstborn was diagnosed, the Joinette’s were the first family Redman met who were facing the same struggle. Thanks to tournaments like Strokes for Emilie, and families like Redman’s and Joinette’s, Ottawa has raised over $1,000,000 for CF. This funding has led to medical advancements, and consequentially an increase in the life expectancy of a person with CF – now, the average person with the disease will live into their

40s. “When my boys were diagnosed, the public awareness slogan was, ‘Imagine knowing your child will die before you,’” Redman said. “Now, it’s ‘Breathing life into the future.’” When Emilie died two years ago, she had survived two double lung transplants and achieved more than most can ever dream of. She participated in multiple telethons put on by the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and spoke at many events. Her positive outlook and activism inspired many people she met, including CTV reporter Catherine Lathem. Not only did Emilie raise money and awareness about CF, but also about the importance of organ donation. Lathem met Emilie when she was 17 and waiting for her lung transplant in Toronto, and the reporter was struck by how few people are listed as organ donors. Latham recruited some of the other women at CTV, and for one full year they all signed off by saying, “Remember to sign your donor cards.” “It was because Emilie inspired Catherine,” Joinette said. Evidently, Latham is still inspired, as she was the MC for the evening. Three trophies have been named after Emilie; one from the Kanata Knights Football Club, one from the Kanata Girls Hockey League, and another from Cystic Fibrosis Canada which has a scholarship attached to it. The Emilie Joinette Scholarship Award goes to a person with the disease who is furthering their education and raising awareness about cystic fibrosis. Half of the tournament proceeds went towards this scholarship; the rest went to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. “Her legacy lives on, believe me,” Joinette said about her daughter. “We’re so blessed to have had a daughter as beautiful as Emilie.” There are currently over 4,000 Canadians attending CF clinics in Canada. About 1 in 25 people carry the defective gene that causes the condition, but symptoms only manifest when a person inherits two of the defective genes; one from each parent.

t took a powerful summertime storm whose aftermath left many without hydro to once again demonstrate that electricity is a vital, necessary component of modern-day society and as such should not be subject to the GST or HST or whatever you want to call that consumption tax that is omnipresent in today’s society. Many in Ottawa found themselves without hydro as a result of the severe wind storm which passed through the Ottawa area last Sunday, July 17 about 7 p.m. In Ottawa, some lost their hydro for only seconds; others for up to 18 hours. Without hydro, you soon come to the realization that modern life as we know it virtually grinds to a halt. If this is not the definition of necessity, we don’t know what is. There is no GST or HST on food because it is regarded as a necessity. The same should apply to our electricity. Just why we put up with having this consumption tax applied to what is so very obviously a necessity in today’s modern life is beyond us. Surely the Ice Storm of 1998, now over a decade back in our memories, showed us all that electricity is

a paramount requirement for today’s lifestyle. Without it, life as we know it comes to a screeching halt. This is even more the case for those in rural areas. When hydro goes, so does the well water pump. No water. And, for some reason, the unavailability of water seems to be a signal to the human bladder – time to get active. So hydro is doubly important in a rural setting. And yet our governments continue to impose a tax on this all important, we would claim, necessity in today’s world. This is not right and should be changed. There is a provincial election coming up. The provincial government can correct this injustice. Make sure that when a candidate, from whatever party, approaches you, point out that hydro is a necessity in today’s world. We cannot live, as our blackout periods after storms show, without it. If this is not the definition of necessity, we do not know what is. And if something is necessary, it should not be the subject of a consumption tax. It’s that simple. And our politicians should take action to remove it from our hydro bills.

Where are the children? Overweight kids need more exercise

C

anadian children are getting fat. I know I’ve written those words before, and I’ve probably used slightly more politically correct terms. But folks, we have an epidemic on our hands. And if you’re reading this, it’s time to do something about it. There are many theories on why overweight and obesity has become a problem among our children. Those who like to ignore the obvious wonder if maybe kids are more stressed out, or if maybe it’s the fault of the schools, or maybe kids are just bigger because we’ve evolved. But in a recent informal comparison I made between the children of today and those that walked the streets in my own childhood, the reason become frighteningly clear. There are no kids walking the streets today. Kids aren’t walking in the woods. They’re not climbing trees in the park. They’re just not around. If you don’t believe the statistics that show nearly 60 per cent of Canadian children park themselves in front of screens for a minimum of three hours each day after school, just look outside your window. The weather is fine. The urban wildlife – raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels – are all out there, climbing trees, and chas-

You’d be hardpressed to find a kid just frolicking in the grass, or playing tag in the neighbour’s yard, I promise you. American author Richard Louv writes about this in the 2008 bestseller, Last Child in the Woods: Saving our children from nature-deficit disorder. The book wouldn’t be so profound except that it’s really the only one of its kind produced for mass readership. And even then, it’s a somewhat dense tome. Louv’s basic argument is that, in the United States, there’s not much wilderness left. He quotes other scholars who suggest that the growth of suburbs in the post Second World War era contributed to the death of the American frontier, which offered the promise of wilderness and discovery. But Louv is optimistic.

Despite numerous studies which show kids emotional and intellectual health has paralleled the rapid deterioration of their physical health, he believes it’s not too late for individuals to take this matter in hand; that we can build new towns that elevate our natural environment rather than destroying it; that we can put our kids back where they belong; in nature. In Canada, we are even more empowered to this end. Ninety per cent of the total land in Canada is provincial or federal Crown land. We are far from meeting our frontier. And in Ottawa, we have enviable access to parkland protected, for the moment, by the National Capital Commission. The downtown core has two rivers and a canal running through its centre. We are practically spitting distance from Gatineau Park, which covers more than 36,000 hectares and boasts more than 200 kilometres worth of trails for hiking and biking, and in the winter, snowshoeing and skiing. And until Russell becomes subdivided, we also have a wealth of local farmers producing everything from boar to beets. So why are our children sitting in front of the television and computer screens? How is it that they don’t understand our food source? And why the heck are they so fat?

If you’re a neighbour, a teacher, a grandmother, a babysitter, or anyone that has influence over children, it’s time to take action. Talk about the issue. Organize a camping trip. Deliver some fresh beets from the Quartier Vanier to your neighbour’s door. An estimated one-third of children in Ottawa are overweight, a number that matches the national average. Children as young as eight are increasingly showing signs of cardiac problems. The problem is the children and the issue are already so big that most of us just want to turn away, fearful of our inability to turn the tide. Charles Gordon will return Aug. 18.

Life is peachy at Cannaught Nursery Family farm’s peaches win innovation award COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

Dorothy and Grant Dobson have produced a Canadian first. Organic peaches grown indoors. “There’s a lot of people who said that it wasn’t possible to do,” Grant Dobson said. Growing peaches in greenhouses isn’t feasible, according to studies at Vineland Station, an agricultural research centre at Guelph University. But the Dobson’s farm, Cannaught Nursery, has proven naysayers wrong and won the Premier’s Agri-Food Innovation award to boot. By allowing snow to build up around their greenhouse in the wintertime, the resulting insulation increases the inner temperature by 10 degrees Celsius. If it’s -35 C outside, it remains -25 C inside with no artificial heat, allowing the peaches to survive. The 1,372 square-metre greenhouse only needs to be heated a couple of days per winter, when the indoor temperature drops below -30 C, which is colder than the peaches can handle. For 11 years, the Dobson’s have been selling their one-of-a-kind fruit at the Carp Farmer’s Market, even though their farm is in Cobden, Ont. about an hour away. “It’s a great place on Saturday mornings,” Dobson said of the market. “We really look forward to seeing all the regulars that turn up.” Eager market-goers have been inquiring for weeks about their peaches, and the time is finally here. For the next three or four weeks, there will be peaches aplenty, but the harvest only lasts around five weeks. “They’re a seasonal delicacy,” Dobson said. His wife Dorothy has been using the fresh crop to test out various peach cobbler recipes to find the best one for the most recent edition of the Carp Farmer’s Market newsletter which she writes. The winning recipe can be found online at: http://www.carpfarmersmarket.com/

news. One of the best parts about buying local produce is the short amount of time between the food being plucked and being eaten. Since Connaught Nursery is only an hour away from Carp, produce sold on the weekend market was picked only one or two days previous. Driving an hour to sell their produce is nothing compared to the hours of labour they put in throughout the week preparing their goods to sell. In fact, the drive is something of a sweet escape, Dobson said. Not to mention that the Carp Farmer’s Market has the reputation of being one of the best farmer’s markets in Canada, he said. “It’s kind of a hidden gem that we’ve got and that we want to keep strong,” he said. In addition to their peaches, Connaught Nursery also uses their greenhouse to grow a tender strain of raspberries uncommon to this area, and seedless grapes. Their outdoor crop harvests the usual garlic, sweet potatoes, peppers, melons, and everything in between. Dobson said he is pleased to see the growth in popularity of farmer’s markets over the past few years. “It’s long overdue,” he said. “There’s a lot of things you can grow here if you put your mind to it. We don’t have to grow all our food in other parts of Ontario or the world. We can grow it right here.” He mentioned hearing stories about big box stores in California paying thousands of dollars to recruit produce vendors right outside their door, because they draw so many people. Although Ontario might not be there yet, we’re getting closer. Connaught Nursery has been around since Grant started the business in 1981. It now includes himself, his wife, and their three daughters who are currently spread around at Queens, Guelph, and Cornell universities. You can visit the Connaught Nursery vendor booth every Saturday at the Carp Farmer’s Market in the fairgrounds, but you better go soon – those indoor-grown, organic peaches won’t last long. “They’re only for sale in Carp,” Dobson said. “You won’t find them anywhere else in Canada.”

Carp Farmer’s Market vendors win innovation awards COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

Out of three awards given to farmers in Eastern Ontario for agricultural innovation this summer, two of those winners sell their goods at the Carp Farmer’s Market. The Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence is given to farmers who are finding new and innovative ways of keeping agriculture alive and well. Grant and Dorothy Dobson of Connaught Nursery received theirs for finding a way to grow peaches where peaches

have never grown before. Kylah Dobson (no relation) and Zach Loeks of Heritage Rainbow Garden operate completely off the grid with their own solar panel system. The award originated as a five-year program announced in the 2006 provincial budget, but it was announced this year that the award will continue permanently. Up to 55 awards are given annually, with a cash prize of $5,000. From those winners, a Minister’s Award is given of up to $50,000, as well as a Premier’s Award of up to $100,000. 482448

Kylah Dobson and Zach Loeks hold their daughter Dayvah, who will be the seventh generation to live on the farmland where Rainbow Heritage Garden is located. Their creation of a mobile solar panel system won them the Premeir’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence. kets is 15 to 25 per cent less than you would pay at their market stand, and includes 8-12 varieties of whatever is in season. “Everything we grow, we’ve selected ourselves,” Dobson said. “We’ve tasted them, so we know that they’re nutritious and fresh.” Many are heirloom varieties, seeds that have been passed

down through generations of farmers. They are tried, tested and true, and haven’t been genetically modified as many seeds have these days. To find out more about Heritage Rainbow Garden or to register for their fall CSA program, visit their website at

When Kylah Dobson and her husband Zach Loeks began Heritage Rainbow Garden in the Ottawa Valley in 2006, they didn’t have to look far for farmland. Dobson’s family has owned 20 hectares of land since 1857 when her great-great-great grandfather acquired the property. “It was just instinct,” Dobson said of her decision to stick with the family tradition of farming. “This is what feels right. I never have doubts that we are doing something good not only for ourselves, but for our Earth and the community.” After meeting at Concordia University, Dobson and Loeks discovered their shared passion for the outdoors and things that grow. They applied for grants to make their own business a possibility, and hit the ground running. All 200 varieties of their produce are organic, and they sell their goods at the Carp Farmer’s Market and the Ottawa Lansdowne Farmer’s Market. Heritage Rainbow Garden does all this while remaining entirely off the grid. They use no hydroelectricity on their farm. Instead, they power they use power generated by their own unique mobile solar panel system that they built themselves. Loeks was born in New Mexico, where harnessing the power of the sun is second nature, so using solar power to energize their farm was an easy decision, Dobson said. Their only issue was how to maximize the solar panels’ usage to benefit all of their property. “We couldn’t figure out where to locate the panels,” Dobson said. “So we thought, ‘OK, we’ll bring them where we need them, and that means they have to be mobile.” They constructed a solar panel system that sits on the back of a tractor and can be transported to wherever energy is needed. Because it’s always in use, the contraption paid for itself very quickly, and is incredibly convenient. This solar system sustains their crops, which vary from your regular garden varieties to things like a purple Peruvian potato. Another popular product is a sweet Japanese salad turnip. “It tastes nothing like a cooking turnip,” Dobson said. “We describe the flavour as being sweet and crisp like an apple, but with the kick of a radish.” The salad turnip can be sliced or grated right onto a salad. If you’d like to try it out, you can

go to the Cheshire Cat Pub in Carp – they buy produce from Heritage Rainbow Garden. You can also visit the Carp Farmer’s Market, where they go to sell their produce directly to the public with no middleman making a profit. “We have contact with our customers,” Dobson said. “We stand by our products, we get to look people in the eye, and I think that instills confidence in the people buying from us.” Less than 24 hours have passed between the time that the fruits and vegetables were harvested to when they arrive at the market. “We’re reestablishing the connections that were lost when people started going to grocery stores, those face-to-face interactions between consumers and producers,” she said. Heritage Rainbow Garden also hosts an increasingly popular program called Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA. People pay a fee at the beginning of the season, then receive a weekly basket of seasonal fruits and vegetables. The summer CSA is currently underway, but the fall CSA will soon be available for registration. The cost of produce in the bas-

It’s full steam ahead for Ottawa’s light-rail transit system. It took six hours of questions from councillors and members of the public before the slam-dunk east-west rail plan was passed unanimously by council on July 14. The vision approved by council was a revised version of the $2.1-billion plan for a 12.5-kilometre LRT line, including a downtown tunnel and 13 stations. The vote marks a key milestone in the LRT project. Next up will be the process of contractors bidding to design, construct and maintain the light-rail system. After the contract is awarded in late 2012, construction is set to begin in 2013 and will wrap up by 2018. Changes to the plan were detailed by Mayor Jim Watson during a press conference on July 7 and include, most significantly, a reduction in the depth of the tunnel and it’s realignment under Queen Street. Detailed engineering work revealed that the tunnel should be built at a much shallower depth than originally anticipated, placing it at around half the initial depth in some locations. That opens the door to a more cost-effective – but very disruptive – type of construction called “cut and cover,” which involves ripping up the street to lay tracks and rebuilding the surface on top of the LRT tunnel. The changes to the plan address one of the major concerns: the estimated $2.1-billion budget didn’t account for inflation, and many worried that costs would get out of control. The revised plan revises that figure to ensure it is estimating $2.1 billion at the time of construction. City treasurer Marian Simulik cautioned that $2.1 billion is still an estimate – the real cost won’t be known until the city signs the contract for the project’s tender. Simulik cautioned that the financial model for the rail system is dependant on transit fares and transit taxes being raised by the rate of inflation each year. Earlier this spring, council also decided to change the approach to the contract bid. The successful company will have to meet a firm cost to construct the LRT line, as well as design and maintain the system for 15 years. Previously, city staff were expected to complete more of the design work and all of the maintenance. Although most LRT stations will be revamps of existing Transitway stations, many don’t have large numbers of potential riders living near them at the moment. But situating transit hubs in developable areas will spur people and businesses to move there. Bayview, LeBreton and Hurdman are the stations that will likely see the most new development around them after LRT moves in. The city intends to work on plans to guide development in those areas, as they are set to see an explosion of investment.

Rupa Chawla, a Kanata resident, surveys a model of what the area surrounding the future Rideau light-rail station will look like when the project is complete in 2018. Chawla isn’t a regular transit user, but she said she would be use the system more often once the rail line is completed. PLAN PRAISED Many groups lined up to sing the plan’s praises during the July 14 meeting. Penny Leclair, vice chair of the city’s accessibility advisory committee, said the city’s rail implementation office has been “outstanding” in communicating with accessibility advocates. Michael Ircha from the pedestrian and transit advisory committee called the changes “stunning news.” Others were more cautious. While Transport Action Canada sees the changes as a major improvement, said its president, David Jeanes, there are still many concerns that must be addressed. For one thing, the train could run into trouble as it takes a steep dip below the Rideau Canal, Jeanes said. Since much of the tunnel’s depth has been raised, it will create a steeper hill to get to the Rideau station, causing a great deal of wear and tear on the trains – not to mention significant energy usage. Jeanes asked the city to look at raising the depth of the Rideau station as well; the canal could even form the roof of the underground station, Jeanes said. Jensen wouldn’t commit to studying that possibility, saying instead

that the depth doesn’t compromise the cost estimate of maintaining and operating the system. The city also needs to pay attention to how bus routes connect to the LRT line, especially downtown, and explore the possibility of allowing for future rail lines to branch off this main system, Jeanes said. Another vocal critic of the plan was well-known bus supporter and former regional chair Andy Haydon, after whom the council chambers is named. Haydon accused councillors of being “infatuated” with light rail, which is a “blind folly” in his opinion. Haydon also likened himself to Winston Churchill, whose warnings of the impending Nazi threat were ignored until it was too late. Watson eventually cut Haydon’s mike to silence him. Absent from the July 7 vote were councillors Peter Clark (Rideau-Rockcliffe), who had a medical appointment; Steve Desroches (GloucesterSouth Nepean), who had committed to travelling to a family gathering before the meeting date was changed; Jan Harder (Barrhaven), who was fighting illness; and Doug Thompson (Osgoode). Council sealed the move towards LRT in January of 2010, when it voted to study to plan the route.

Ottawa’s light rail plan chugs forward

LRT stations leave transit users out in the cold

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Can Ottawa support an underground city? One of the reoccurring themes for councillors during the light-rail transit meeting was the possibility of adding some shops and businesses underground. River Ward Coun. Maria McRae said the city needs to take a serious look at the potential to include an underground mall – or at least a few shops – before it gets too far into the process of building the LRT system. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches was also interested in promoting private investment in building the stations. A presentation by the owners of the Rideau Centre mall gave McRae hope. Ivan Boulva, vice president of development for the company that owns the Rideau Centre (Cadillac Fairview Corporation Ltd.), didn’t close the door on that possibility. “Once you get underground, it has to be looked at,” he said. Rideau Station, which will be situated under the canal and connect the mall with access to the National Arts Centre, is the largest station and likely the best option for underground businesses, Jensen said.

“First of all, they didn’t say ‘No,’” McRae said. “They didn’t say ‘Yes,’ but … in the business world, the buzz is more positive than it was before. “We’re hearing nibbles now,” she added. The business community has been reacting positively to the city’s plan to reduce the depth of the downtown rail tunnel from about 12 storeys deep to around four. That means it is time for the city to “talk turkey” about including businesses in the LRT stations, McRae said. “We have to get really serious with the business community,” she said. That might mean simply planning the structures in a way that would allow them to be expanded underground in the future, McRae said, when there may be more of a demand for below-ground retail or services. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury was disappointed that the station designs didn’t contemplate more space for cafés or convenience stores. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs had the same idea. John Jensen, manager of the city’s rail implementation office, said there is room for newspaper vendors and coffee kiosks at station entrances – a much more common feature in subway systems.

Some councillors keen on underground city

A small-scale model of the future LeBreton light-rail station was set up outside the council chambers during a July 14 vote on the LRT project. 439514

A couple of councillors balked at learning that transit users in the world’s second-coldest capital city could still be exposed to the elements in the 13 new stations. There are no heating or cooling systems planned for the stations, and instead of doors, the hubs will have “gates.” However, transit users will be shielded from the elements by glass elements and wind barriers, said architect Peter Busby. Instead of heaters, the stations would have radiant heating systems, with seats that become warm as people sit on them. “I appreciate nothing is going to fall on my head directly, but what is going to happen if there is wind whistling through there?” said Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, who echoed Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans’ concerns. The stations themselves will be designed to reflect the textures found in Ottawa’s landscape, Busby said. “Nature is a fundamental part of the infrastructure,” he said.

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

The stations will include a lot of stone, wooden “wave” form ceilings meant to mimic movement and water elements using rainwater capturing systems that will be used to create water features. Those elements will be incorporated into some of the components of existing Transitway stations where possible, while some of the stations will be brand new. Another issue that miffed some councillors was the lack of washrooms in any of the stations. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes led the charge in questioning city staff about why washrooms in the LRT stations weren’t considered. Washrooms aren’t a common feature in subway systems because of the cost associated with building and maintaining the facilities, not to mention the security risk they pose, staff told her. As one OC Transpo manager put it: “There are activities which people choose to carry out which are ones that you would not want to support.” However, Orleans Coun. Bob Monette pointed out that some systems, including the ones in Calgary and Edmonton, do have washrooms. He suggested it is something the city should at least look at including. There are washrooms close by to many of the transit hubs, pointed out deputy city manager of infrastructure Nancy Schepers. But she added that it is a decision that is still up to council to make, if councillors want washrooms.

West Carleton: one disturb, one suspicious. March Rural: one disturb, one suspicious. Fitzroy Harbour: one suspicious. Carp Village: one suspicious. Greenlands: one mischief. Pinhey Point: one bylaw. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the Highway Traffic laws, responding to false 911 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa fire, paramedics and bylaw services.

to be vandalized by an unidentified culprit on Monday and Tuesday morning. On both occasions, letters were rearranged and glued to the billboard surface and spoke of lewd things and of how Satan was beating Jesus. From a security perspective, steps are being taken to protect the billboard from future scrabble players. Looking beyond the physical aspect of this case, do you think there is more to this than meets the eye from a wellness perspective?

tained considerable damage and as a result of the intense heat the windows to the patio doors shattered. Investigation revealed that the owner was woken up by his dog being bothered by something and noticed an orange glow coming from his window. Looking out he quickly realized the source of the glow; his barbeque was on fire and it was spewing flames, like an out of control flamethrower, all over the side of the house. On investigation by the fire inspector, it was determined that the fire started from a cigarette can that was left sitting on the patio deck. After finishing his last

cigarette at around 9:30 p.m. the resident dropped the remains into the can and retired for the evening. Over the course of the night a small fire, born from the can, crawled its way along a wooden deck board to the propane tank. The fire was ruled as accidental due to smoking, but the house sustained considerable damage. No injuries or fatalities were reported, thanks in part to the dog. POLICE, on page 16

Be Cool...

STOLEN MONEY? ACTING ON YOUR DOG’S INSTINCTS You be the judge. An intoxicated 18year-old male from the West Carleton area complained to a police dispatcher that someone had stolen his money, approx. $400, and that they might have broken into his parents’ house. On police investigation it was discovered that his parents used the money to pay for his lawyer fees. YOUNG LOVE? At around midnight on Monday police were called out to the dead end section of Peter Robinson Road after a complainant reported observing a suspicious vehicle parked at the end of his neighbour’s laneway with two people inside. Catching the complainant’s curiosity was the fact that the interior dome light was being repeatedly switched on and off. Setting off his internal security alarm was his awareness of recent reports of break and enters in the area. In short order police arrived on scene and discovered the nature of the excitement—a homeowner’s son was parked at the end of their laneway with his girlfriend.

If your smoke alarm sounded off in the middle of the night there is a pretty good chance that you wouldn’t just ignore it and rollback to sleep. Chances are, you would probably leap out of bed and investigate it. What if your smoke detector sounded like an out of character whining dog? Would you tell your dog to quiet down and rollback to sleep or would you get up and investigate it? The latter would definitely be the preferable choice to make when it comes to the WiSSH (pronounced Wish) factor—that is Wellness in Safety, Security and Health. Failing to act on these external sensors can have some dire consequences to your health, safety and/or security. For one resident in Constance Bay, who probably has his dog to thank for saving his life, by sounding the alarm. It was around 3 a.m. on Tuesday morning when emergency services were dispatched to a house fire on Whistler Road. Information on the call indicated that the fire was at the back of the house. Just as the firefighters pulled up to the house the resident had nearly extinguished all of the flames with his garden hose. Left smoldering were the roof and eaves troughs. The backside of the house had sus-

hile the life of the average house cat may be long and leisurely, the life of a barn cat can be short and difficult. One way to improve the health and prolong the life of a female barn cat is to have her spayed so she doesn’t have to have any more kittens. Wednesday was Penelope’s lucky day. Penelope was born three years ago (I think, from my photo album research), during my first summer as a farmwife. She looks like a calico, but instead of orange, black and white markings, she has grey, peach and white colouring, making her what is known as a dilute calico. This cat is probably the least feral of all of our barn cats. Since she was born, she has always

Penelope also prefers to be fed separately from the other cats. She seems to be very worried about sharing a platter of feed with the others, and they usually respond to her nervous approach with a clawed swat to her nose. Penelope hops up onto the closest piece of barn furniture and I feed her there. I figured Penelope would be easy enough to catch, in comparison to our other mamas. Tuesday evening, I lured Penelope into a cat carrier with Temptations cat treats. She didn’t even blink as I gently pushed her tail inside and latched the door. When she ran out of treats, however, it was another story. She rocked and rolled

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife been fonder of the humans than of the other cats. While most barn cats rub and nuzzle against each other, Penelope saves her lovin’ for the people. If I put my hand down to pet her, she arches her back and does a little hop up to reach me. This dance is repeated over and over, until one of us gets tired (usually me; not the cat).

that carrier until it popped open at the plastic hinges. She pushed the lid to the side, crawled out and came and sat by my feet, looking up at me and demanding more cat treats. I sighed. Clearly I needed a stronger cage. I crawled up into the stable loft and found the dog carrier that was double the size and strength of the cat carrier. It was held together with bolts instead of plastic hinges. But could I get her into a cage again? FARMWIFE, see 16

‘It took a bit of coaxing’: Farmwife FARMWIFE, from 15 It took a bit of coaxing but eventually Penelope was successfully lured into the cage. They don’t call them Temptation cat treats for nothing. I drove the cat to the cat shelter in North Gower, where Penelope was scheduled to stay the night. Her cat treats would be the last food she would have until after her surgery the next day. Early Wednesday morning, Penelope was delivered to the Riverside South Animal Hospital. There she entered into the TrapNeuter-Return program for feral cats. Surgery was scheduled for the morning, and I received a call when she woke up from her sedative, at about three in the afternoon. The patient was ready for

pickup. As a feral cat, Penelope was given a slowrelease antibiotic and pain killer to facilitate recovery. She spent the first 24 hours in the house. I went down to the basement before bed and couldn’t find her amongst the stored furniture. I got a flashlight and finally I spotted her eyes flashing at me from inside the dollhouse. When she emerged from the basement the next day to wander the house, howling at every window and door, I knew she was ready to return outside. Many thanks to Paul Lafleur of Village Kitten Rescue in North Gower (www. vkrkittens.com) and Dr. Dennett of the Riverside South Animal Hospital for everything. That’s one less mama cat I have to worry about. Now, who’s next?

Body found in Shirley’s Bay JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Police have identified the body of a man found dead in the Ottawa River near Shirley’s Bay on the morning of Wednesday, July 13. The family has requested the name not be released, said a police spokesperson, adding police haven’t confirmed if the man was the driver of an abandoned vehicle left near the water at Shirley’s Bay. No foul play is suspected, she said. Police were at the area of the Lac Deschenes Sailing Club, near the Connaught Range and Primary Training Centre, early Wednesday. Fire rescue crews were called to the scene around 8:30 a.m. for a body found in the water. “They (the police) didn’t know the condition,” said fire spokesman Marc Messier. “We were treating it as a possible rescue. “When we got there it was apparent it wasn’t a recue. It became a body retrieval.” The body was found about three metres away from a dock at 2 Riverdown Dr. said Messier. A vehicle left near the scene was reported to police on Tuesday, July 12, after it sat unattended since Monday night. “Someone reported it to the police (on Tuesday) because it had been there since the night before,” said the police spokesperson. “We didn’t know who had brought the car there.”

WEST CARLETON REVIEW - July 21 2011

Stone Fence Theatre presents

THE OPEONGO OPERA

No more high-floor buses for OC Transpo LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Bob Brown used to squint down the road, scanning each bus for a yellow accessibility rail that would indicate whether he would make it to his destination on time. But now those days are in the past. As of July 12, the city’s bus fleet is “100 per cent accessible,” according to transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans, councillor for Gloucester-Southgate. The city rolled out one of 89 remaining high-floor buses for the very last time to announce that the final remaining inaccessible OC Transpo buses were being retired. Twenty Nova model buses – the first generation of low-floor buses – have also been phased out because they were aging and difficult for wheelchairs and scooters to maneuver inside. That means people in wheelchairs, like Brown, and those who have mobility concerns will now have barrier-free access on all bus routes. “Now, it’s not a worry,” said Brown, a local accessibility advocate and the former chair of the city’s accessibility advisory committee. A complete fleet of low-floor buses will also be a boon for people with strollers and those trying to board a bus with lug-

gage, said Mayor Jim Watson, who was also at the city hall event. The old buses were purchased by the former regional municipality and the city phased them out three years ahead of schedule, Deans said. The move also makes bus maintenance easier by reducing the number of different styles of buses (there are now five models in the fleet). Combine that with the audio system that calls out stops, and OC Transpo is one of, if not the most, accessible transit system in Canada, the mayor touted. The changes are also aimed at reducing pressure on the more costly Para Transpo system by making it easier for anyone to ride the main transit system. Other accessibility considerations include daily checks of elevators at transit stations, upgrades to transit-station access and ongoing training for bus operators on how to address service animals such as seeing-eye dogs. OC Transpo driver André Bastien, who has been operating buses for almost 40 years, said drivers would not be sad to see the old vehicles go to “bus Heaven,” as the mayor joked. Bastien had the honour of driving the last high-floor bus to its final resting place, and said he will be happy to never turn away another passenger due to a lack of accessibility.

Team out to discover the Ottawa River JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The Riverkeeper is coming. A group led by Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown began an ambitious and interactive journey of discovery July 4. The team, which is expected to reach the McNab-Braeside-Arnprior

stretch of the river about midAugust, is documenting the state of the Ottawa River. The goal of the Great River Project is to share the ecology and rich cultural heritage of the Kichi sipi (Great River) with a wide audience. Brown is being accompanied by an expert team of photogra-

guides, fishermen, farmers and river enthusiasts to find out why the river is worth knowing and protecting. “Experiencing the river through stories, photographs, videos and interviews will help thousands of people, including decision-makers, become more knowledgeable about the state

phers, naturalists, historians, scientists and a motivated group of students. Along the way we will monitor water quality, and meet with a diverse group of people and leaders who depend on the Ottawa River for different reasons. They will interview scientists, dam operators, First Nation chiefs, river

of the Ottawa River and the importance it plays in our everyday lives, our culture, our heritage, our health and our economy,” says Brown. Those interested can follow the adventures of the canoeing team on the expedition blog on the website http://grp.ottawariverkeeper.ca/.

The growing gap The Second in a Three-Part Series BY DAVID FLEISCHER AND NICOLE VISSCHEDYK

Y

ou’re getting a lot of new neighbours over the next few years as Ontario grows, but no one is sure how to pay for them. All those new residents are going to need pipes to bring water to their homes, libraries and community centres in which to spend time and roads on which to drive. There isn’t enough money to build it all. The Greater Golden Horseshoe area’s population alone will swell from 8 million to 11.5 million by 2031, and the towns, villages and cities surveyed in a Metroland Special Report estimate they will need tens of billions of dollars they don’t have in order to accommodate that growth. Amalgamation in Ottawa in Jan. 2001 brought 11 urban and rural municipalities together under one government, with a total population of about 800,000. Ottawa expects that number to push past the one million mark this year. The city and contributing developers purchased or constructed $1.1 billion in new public assets in 2010 alone. Infrastructure is the underpinning of every Ontario community, the public facilities that form the physical backbone that supports daily life. But there’s a gap of about $100 billion between what’s needed and what’s available in funds. The Metroland Special Report shows that communities are already pressed to their limits, with many in debt due to lack of funds for existing infrastructure. Halton Region, for example, estimates it needs $8.6 billion to pay for infrastructure related to growth through to 2031. That includes 50 new elementary schools and new community centres, 2,200 kilometres of roads, six police stations and 1,100 hospital beds. It’s similar provincewide: • York Region estimates it will need $11.1 billion just for infrastructure to serve the 500,000 new residents expected by 2031. More than 80 per cent of the region’s budget is earmarked for infra-

structure related to growth over the next decade. • Peel’s capital budget over the next 10 years is just over $5 billion; • Kitchener says it will need nearly $240 million for growth just in the next decade, with only one-third of that total coming from development charges. The rest will have to come from taxes; • Niagara Falls says it will need more than $100 million in the next 10 years, with taxpayers on the hook for nearly half. Providing the physical premises for other provincially mandated programs is an issue. Schools have their own challenges. Allday kindergarten is still being phased in and is expected to cost about $1.5 billion a year provincewide. “We will only proceed if we have the infrastructure coming … we will draw a line in the sand,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr, adding the province “has to decide if they’re going to invest in the future or not.” Fairness for Halton, a public campaign launched in 2007, demanded a new deal that would allow the region to develop without overburdening taxpayers. All municipalities want the province to create a new, secure infrastructure funds program, rather than the piecemeal system in use now. Building Together, the Ontario government’s 10-year infrastructure plan, was unveiled June 24 and, while short on specifics, pledges to find new ways to invest in transit and other municipal responsibilities, like affordable housing. Infrastructure Minister Bob Chiarelli says the government recognizes there are needs to be met in high-growth communities. But the issue is not just about funding. There is much tug-andpull over the place and responsibility of developers when a community grows. One touchy element is that the cost of projects associated with growth are supposed to come from charges paid by developers. But those fees or taxes paid by developers on each new commercial, industrial or housing unit they build are increasingly

inadequate. A report released by the Residential & Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario in March said government levies now account for up to 30 per cent of the cost of new housing in the GTA, proposing that something needs to change to facilitate growth. “You’ve got a good plan here and it makes a lot of sense, but you need to put infrastructure where you’ll get the best bang for the buck,” said RCCAO Exec utive Director Andy Manahan. There is a limit to how much the new-home market can absorb, he said.

Manahan agrees with municipal leaders that national programs for things such as transit and cities are crucial and that program-based, piecemeal funding won’t cut the mustard in the future. Also difficult for municipalities is that revisions to the Development Charges Act by the former Mike Harris government mean many projects are exempt from the charges. So, if a growing municipality needs a new hospital or a new city hall, taxpayers have to pay. Municipalities have repeatedly asked Premier Dalton McGuinty

to revise the act but he has made it clear it is not in his plans. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak has also publicly said revisions are not on his radar, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be lobbying for change over the next few months, said Halton chair Carr, a former Tory MPP. His municipality of Halton is among the fastest growing in the country and councillors are not prepared to meet mandated growth targets if they don’t get help paying for that new population’s needs. “We’re not going to have the taxpayers of Halton pay the costs while the developers make the profit,” especially when home sales are brisk, he said. Home building is also booming in York Region, where the region has racked up a debt of $1.4 billion to build infrastructure it knows is needed while counting on development charges to pay for it later. Manahan, the Ontario construction association director, said the wave of growth is clearly already coming ashore, even if the funding hasn’t been settled. If new home and business costs are driven up, people will move further out, making the live/work/ play communities envisioned by Places to Grow much harder to achieve, he said.

Ottawa’s extensive (and expensive) road network LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Ottawa’s 5,700 kilometres of roads alone are worth $11 billion. To meet all of its roadconstruction needs, the city would need to spend closer to $130- to $140-million each year, according to Wayne Newell, the city’s general manager of infrastructure services. Instead, Ottawa is spending $42.7 million this year, but that is dropping to $23.9 million next year. By 2014, it will soar back up to $56.7 million.

David Chernushenko, the councillor for Capital Ward and environmentalist, decried the city’s insistence on constructing new roads. A plan to construct a $62-million, 1.2kilometre section of road to the Ottawa General Hospital caused significant outcry. “We keep building new roads when we don’t have enough money to maintain the roads we have now,” Chernushenko said. In the last term of council, Ottawa did take action regarding its infrastructure debt – but it didn’t last. Coun-

cil imposed a levy in 2006 that would add money to a reserve fund dedicated to tackling infrastructure renewal. “We stayed true to our principles for one year, and by the second year we had watered it down and by the third year we abandoned that principle,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess, who wants to bring the levy back. The city’s approach is to do only what it can afford. That’s the wrong answer, Bloess said. “But the real issue should be: What do you need to do to maintain your infrastructure?”

2nd ANNUAL ARNPRIOR

Are licence plates on bicycles in Ottawa’s future? It’s a possibility that one east-end councillor wants the city to look at. Orleans Coun. Bob Monette insists his idea is not about the money – and he is not even sure if it’s something he supports. He just wants to know the pros and cons, he says. A bike-licensing program could mean “more control” for both cyclists and the city, he said. The city would be able to more easily identify cyclists who break the law, and also return lost bikes to their rightful owners, Monette said. “Right now, there is a lot of disregard for traffics laws,” he said. It would also provide a way to get more information about safe cycling to riders. It could help the city keep tabs on how many cyclists are using Ottawa streets and it could also earn a bit of extra money for the city to invest in cycling improvements or safety programs. The city’s transportation committee recently received a report that listed a cost of $220,000 per year for an improved cycling safety program. The source of the funds hasn’t been identified and would have to be discussed during the city’s bud-

get process next year. Monette remembered back to when he got his first bike as a child and went down to register for his bike license. “When I had my first bike, I was proud to get my license,” he said. While cyclists “may not like the idea,” Monette said, he thinks it is a discussion the city should be having, especially with the focus on cycling and cycling lanes (such as the newly opened segregated lane on Laurier Avenue). As it turns out, River Ward Coun. Maria McRae asked the same question about city bicycle licensing. The former city of Ottawa studied the idea and found that it would lose money; it would cost about $100,000 (at the time) to run the program, but would only generate about $30,000 to $40,000 in revenue. City bylaw chief Linda Anderson also told McRae that licenses would discourage people from cycling – which goes against the city’s own policies. Citizens for Safe Cycling (CFSC), an Ottawa-based advocacy group, agreed. The group doesn’t support bike licenses and is against any scheme that would discourage people from riding bicycles. While bicycling licensing was more common in the past, the only major Canadian city that continues doing so appears to be Regina, Sask.

Scotiabank Place to host 2012 Juno Awards jessica.cunha@metroland.com

It’s no April Fool’s joke – the 2012 Juno Awards are coming to Kanata. The annual Canadian music awards show is set to be hosted at Scotiabank Place on April 1, 2012. “It’s going to be fantastic,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “It’ll be a great week for the ward.” Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said hosting the Junos will help boost the city’s tourism business. “I’m really pleased to hear that they’re coming,” she said. “Having special events in Ottawa is really helpful for our tourism business.” The event is expected to bring in $5 million from out-of-town visitors, create over 80 jobs and inject $5.3 million into the local economy. “It’s a benefit for the entire city,” said Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri. “It identifies the City of Ottawa as a good place to hold events. “I’m looking forward to the City of Ottawa being classified as an award-winning city.” West Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said hosting the Junos will put Ottawa on the map as a destination city. “I think it’s great to have the city host it,” he said. “Put our city on the map. The Junos will be watched by millions.” Ottawa Tourism president and CEO Noel Buckley agreed, saying the Juno Awards and the future events being hosted by the city provide a chance for the tourism industry to stand out. “This is a major opportunity for us to further develop the Ottawa brand,” said Buckley. The last time the Capital City hosted the awards ceremony was in 2003 when Shania Twain hosted.

“We got great feedback after the last one,” said Qadri, including top marks from host Twain. There will be a week’s worth of events and festivities showcasing Canadian talent leading up to the awards show, from March 26 to April 1. “This is great news for our city and for our tourism and hospitality sectors in particular,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “They (the awards show) also help us to spread the word about Ottawa and enhance our reputation as a convenient and friendly host city for major events.” “It’s great and I’m sure our residents will be happy to open our doors to all the visitors that will come to our area for the awards,” said Hubley. This year’s awards show was held in Toronto, with rapper Drake hosting the event. There has been no word yet on who might host the 2012 show.

Date: July 23 2011

REVIEW STAFF The OPP are warning all-terrain vehicle (ATV) drivers to be more careful after a series of recent deaths. Renfrew OPP are investigating the death of an ATV driver July 2 near Calabogie. At about 2 p.m. an 83-year-old man was driving his ATV down a steep hill on a trail off Green Lake Road when a protruding log caused him to lose control. The ATV rolled several times and landed on top of the victim, who was not wearing a helmet. He was discovered about 10 minutes later by his son. Paramedics attended and took the man to Calabogie, where he was airlifted by Ornge air ambulance to the Ottawa Hospital. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital that night. OPP Const. Adam Nitschmann investigated the incident. Meanwhile, a funeral was to be held today (Thursday) in Carleton Place for 18-year-old Justin Makivirta, died following an all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) crash Saturday. Police released the teen’s name Monday, following the weekend incident that saw Makivirta overturn his ATV north of Buckingham. The police said that he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. There have been multiple ATV accidents in the area and across the province over the past few weeks, prompting OPP detachments to stress the importance of ATV safety. OPP stress it is mandatory in Ontario and Quebec to wear a helmet while driving an ATV.

Council to take another look at urban boundary LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Developers will get a say on where the city should expand its urban boundary. Although the city’s planning committee voted to stick with its original 2009 recommendation on which parcels of land should be absorbed within the urban boundary, but city council decided to go in a different direction. City lawyers repeatedly warned that the city would likely be at risk in another legal

battle at the Ontario Municipal Board if it did nothing to update the three-year-old study. So although the final result will likely be more-or-less the same, said city lawyer Tim Marc, the city should make the effort to see if there is any new information worth considering, including a mini-consultation of developers. The urban boundary defines where city services such as water and sewer are provided and therefore restricts the type of development that is allowed.

Innes Ward Coun. Rainer Bloess said he was hesitant to take another look at the study because it would open a “Pandora’s box.” “This is not the time to re-open this and get ourselves bogged down even further,” Bloess said. “To go back to that just leaves us more vulnerable and more open to being contested.” Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark agreed, saying that a new study would only give people – mostly developers – more opportunities to make more argu-

ments against the city’s reasoning. City council is faced with this decision because it lost an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). While the city’s planning staff had originally recommended expanding the boundary by 850 hectares, council went with a more modest 230 hectares over a shorter period of time, with the hope of reducing sprawl. But the OMB sided with city staff. Revisiting the study shouldn’t rack up any additional costs, be-

cause it would be done with existing staff resources, said city clerk Rick O’Connor. Experts needed for the OMB hearing would most likely be city staff as well, he said. The initial OMB hearing cost taxpayers $400,000. The update to the urban boundary study should be completed by September. “If it’s going to help us in the long run, that’s a short amount of time,” commented Keith Egli, the councillor for KnoxdaleMerivale Ward.

The city outlined its cycling safety strategy a year after the highest number of cyclists died on Ottawa roads in a decade. Six cyclists died in Ottawa in 2010, compared to three in 2007, which was the second-highest year for fatalities. Altogether, there were 230 minor cycling accidents and 12 serious accidents, which is relatively average for Ottawa over the past decade. The city began evaluating its cycling safety program in August of 2010 and wrapped up the study this May. The resulting cycling safety improvement program (CSIP) includes a method of assessing the level of “danger and discomfort” of a problematic cycling location. Also included is a tool for deciding which type of cycling facility (bike lane, segregated lane, etc.) should be incorporated into which streets. Cycling safety isn’t just about cyclists, the report says. While training cyclists how to follow the rules of the road is one part, it is just as important to direct cycling safety messages to all road users, including motorists, the report says. But to be successful, the program needs money, in the form of one full-time staffer to run it. The cycling safety program would need about $220,000 each year for capital and operational funding. That issue will be brought up during the 2012 budget process, when city council decides how to dole out tax dollars. Top-10 streets identified for cycling safety improvements: 1. Wellington and Lyon street 2. Albert Street and Bronson Avenue 3. Maitland Avenue at the Queensway 4. MacKenzie King Bring and Waller Street 5. O’Connor and Catherine streets 6. Montreal Road and North River Road at Cyrville Road 7. Bank Street from Echo to Riverside drives 8. St. Patrick Street eastbound at Beechwood Avenue 9.

A special hockey team for special kids KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

Jim Perkins believes every child should have a chance to play sports – no matter what their physical and mental limitations are. That’s why the Kanata resident and his wife, Shana, started up the Capital City Condors hockey team, which is meant for young people aged six to 21 who are physically and mentally disabled. “I think it boils down to the fact that sometimes kids are referred to as ‘special needs kids,’ but they’re kids with special needs. The kids part comes first,” said Perkins, president of the hockey team. “They have the same dreams any kid would – which are to play, and be part of a team.” When Perkins was in college, he worked for a family that had special needs children. Through his experience, he said he developed a fondness for children who are disabled and knew he wanted to do something to help them. Four years ago, he started up a summer camp for disabled children just to see what

kind of interest there might be. Only three children took part, but once Perkins gained attention from television media, his phone wouldn’t stop ringing. Perkins said he and his wife were also blown away when they visited Cambridge, Ont., shortly afterwards and met work special needs children who played for a special hockey team there. “We got to see the program and meet the kids,” he said. “Before they had joined the team, the kids were unable to communicate with people. But now we could go up and have a conversation with them. We could see the change it was making in them off the ice. They had confidence, and felt like they were a part of something.” Now going into its fourth year, the Capital City Condors has 40 young people playing on the ice once a week and Perkins said there’s close to 50 on the waiting list. “A lot of these kids have watched their siblings play, and some of them have just sat and cried and asked ‘when can we play?’” Perkins said. “One of the moms said this program makes dreams come true for the kids.”

Each player on the team also gets a specially-made jersey with their names and favourite number on the back. “We have about four number 12s,” Perkins laughed. “But if these kids are going to be part of a team, it should have their favourite number on it. It’s their dream jersey.” He added that the jerseys are so important to the players that many of them even wear them to bed. He said another boy who was battling leukemia had the jersey hanging up in his hospital room. Perkins said one thing people would be surprised by if they went to see the team play is their sense of sportsmanship. He mentioned one little girl on the team who had a walker, but was able to play hockey because there were blades tied to the bottom of the walker and she had a harness with a hockey stick attached. Perkins remembers when another boy stopped and picked up the puck, put it in front of her and moved the other players out of the way. He told the goalie to let her score, and she got her first goal. “A lot of these kids have spe-

Perkins feels being involved

in the team has changed his and his wife’s life – and the couple learns a new lesson every week. “The kids’ parents have become heroes to us,” he said. “We marvel at these families and for them to see their kids having that much fun, it’s one of the most worthwhile things about it.”

COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

Four years after his death, softball coach Gil Read continues to inspire athletes. The fourth annual Gil Read Memorial Men’s Fastpitch Tournament will take place from Friday to Sunday, July 22-24 at the Carp Fairgrounds. The tournament will raise money for the Gil Read Memorial Foundation, which helps to provide money and sporting equipment to kids from financially disadvantaged families in Ottawa. Allen Read, Gil’s nephew and a member of the foundation, was recently able to give money to a child whose father had terminal cancer and was unable to play hockey because of the financial burden. “We gave him new equipment, paid his registration fees, and we put him on the ice,” Read said. While his namesake raises money for kids posthumously, Gil made his fair share of contributions to the sporting world when he was alive as well. He led three teams to the Canadian Softball Championships in 1993, 1995 and 1999. He led Team Ontario to gold medals

at the Canada Summer Games in 1997, 2001 and 2005. He even coached the Canadian women’s softball team at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. In 2009, he was inducted into the Softball Canada Hall of Fame. But softball wasn’t his only passion. Before his children became involved in softball, which prompted his involvement as well, he was a coach for the Nepean Raiders Football Team. When Gil passed away suddenly in 2007 after a four-wheeler accident, family members put their heads together to find a way to thank him for all he had contributed in his life. “The best thing I thought we could do was create a tournament in his memory,” Read said. The first tournament took place in 2008 at Ottawa’s Carlington Park; the second year was in the same location. Last year, however, the venue was moved to Carp Fairgrounds, and immediately the tournament doubled its profits – while in central Ottawa they raised around $5,000 a year, their first year in Carp managed to raise around $10,000. “My home diamond is in Carp,” Read said, “A lot of the players on my team and in the

area had him as a coach.” Read plays on the Carp I4C Victory team, which will be one of the ten teams competing in the tournament. Other teams to watch for include the Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric; The Quebec Senior Men’s team who just won the Lake Placid Tournament by beating the Carp I4C Victory; and the Napanee Junior Team who will be hosting the Canadian National Softball Championships in August. The first place team will win $1,800; second place gets $700. Admission to attend the tournament is $5 for the day or $10 for a weekend pass, and children under the age of 12 receive free admission. The fairgrounds host a splash pad and playground for youngsters, and a mini-putt course will be set up on the property. For the adults, there will be door prizes, 50/50 draws, and large enclosed beer tents. The semi-finals take place on Sunday at 1:30 p.m., followed by the finals at 3 p.m. This year, the RCMP made a large donation towards the event which the foundation wishes to thank them for.

The fourth annual Gil Read Memorial Men’s Fast Pitch Tournament will take place from July 22 to 24 at the Carp Fairgrounds. Ten teams will compete for the win, including the Carp I4C Victory and the Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric. foundation’s next project will be to secure charitable status so that donators will be eligible for tax receipts. Eventually, they hope to have information about the foundation put on to every local sports team’s website so that people can learn more about the foundation and how they can benefit from it. “We want to try to help as many kids as we can,” Read said.

And if those kids get help, maybe they will have a childhood like Read himself did, when he would head to the batting cage in his uncle’s garage to hit some balls. “We had the best batting coach around,” he said of Gil.

Crusaders earn long-awaited Little League nationals trip BY DAN PLOUFFE As the Ottawa West Crusaders compete at this week’s Little League Canada national championships in Sydney Mines, N.S., it represents the fulfillment of a baseball dream for the 12 players that came so close to making that wish come true on many previous occasions. The 17- to 19-year-old Big League-level players from the District 2 organizations had been to the Ontario final numerous times over the course of their careers, but they’d never completed that last step until July 13 when they pulled out a 4-3 comeback victory over the East Ottawa Cobras at Upper Kinsmen Field in Kanata. “It’s pretty amazing. I’ve played 15 years and never won a provincial championship,” smiled Crusaders starting pitcher Dom Heallis, who refused to let prior failures hurt his mental approach. “I just built off those disappointments. You fail a couple times and you’ll eventually succeed.” After keeping a positive outlook through a decade-and-a-half of disappointments, Heallis wasn’t about to get down after giving up a first-inning threerun home run to Cobras slugger Dominic Plaschy in the Ontario championship game.

“For me, the turning point was the home run,” Heallis added. “It got me excited and told me I had to push harder, and I did, I shut them out for the rest of the game.” Heallis kept the District 6 Cobras in check until the home side’s offence finally got rolling in the fourth inning with a game-tying rally ignited by Steve Milks’ RBI double to deep centrefield. Conner Wilson scored the winning run in the bottom of the sixth thanks to a Rizz Mendoza sacrifice and then took to the mound in place of Heallis for the nerve-wracking final inning. The former Carlingwood-Frank Ryan, Pinecrest and East Nepean player said it was the most important situation he’s ever pitched in, and was relieved to see the final groundball out. “At nationals, I’ll probably be more nervous than that right there, so it’ll be pretty crazy,” noted Wilson, who was looking forward to a week off from stacking apples at WalMart. “I hear lots of people are there, so it’s pretty exciting stuff. It means a lot to us.” One person who has been there before is manager Dave Wilson, who’s making his sixth trip to the national championships and is after his second Canadian title.

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING gets read. gets remembered. gets results

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.

Fitzroy Harbour Charmer!

‘Every year but one I’ve made it to the final’: coach NATIONALS, from 44 “It’s an experience I wish every kid in baseball could experience,” explained the coach who received a celebratory Gatorade cooler ice bath on the nippy evening of the provincial final. “They’re going to have a lot of fun. It’s still serious. We’re going down to play baseball. But you start getting the crowds – I’ve been there when there were 5,000 people there. It leaves you shaking a little – even for me, standing there on the third base line.” Wilson was expecting a tough challenge from the host Atlantic Canada team – the event’s twotime defending champions – as well as the always-strong B.C. contingent. “We’ll see when we get down there how it goes,” said Wilson, who saluted the Kanata Little League volunteer organizers for transforming the field into great playing condition from the mess of lakes that ruled just hours before the first pitch due to heavy rainfall earlier in the day. “Every year but one I’ve made it to the final with my team, so I’m hoping.”

PHASE 4

Fairgrounds on a Football Friday in the ‘60s with the trees in colour, the antique grandstand full of students from the contending schools, great Almonte Thunderbolt teams on the field and the roar of the crowd audible all across town. Unfortunately for Almonte, the growth of Kanata led to the erection of Earl of March High School and the transfer of the Carp secondary students to the new school. Ironically, ‘Doc’ Armstrong was the first principal of Earl of March. Almonte and District High School (the name changed in 1968) became a smaller, quieter place without the Carp contribution. In fact, Almonte has never recovered the numbers it had at the end of the ‘60s. July 30 will be a great chance for former students to recall those great days of notso long ago.

On July 30, Almonte alumni from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s will gather at the Almonte Community Centre to remember the glory days of Almonte High School in those distant years. It is hard to believe from the distance of 50 years that for a couple of decades after the Second World War, from 1948 to 1972, high school students from Carp attended Almonte High School in Lanark County. The City of Ottawa was a good hour’s drive away in those days. Universal school busing for rural Ontario students was introduced in 1948. Prior to that year, rural students had to take public transport to school where it existed, or, failing that, move to a town where there was a high school and board there for the school year. The nearest Carleton County High School to Carp in 1948 was Nepean Collegiate, so the boys and girls from “the Carp” trundled by bus over

the ridges on Highway 44 (now County Road 49) to Almonte, a mere 12 miles (19 kilometers) away. In the ‘50s and ‘60s the Baby boom was in full production and students swarmed from the farms and villages of the Ottawa Valley countryside. Almonte High School, with the influx of the kids from Huntley as well its own Lanark County base, went from less than 200 students in 1948 to over 600 20 years later. The lads and lasses from Carp were a big part of school life in Almonte. They brought a lively enthusiasm to school life that lit up the building. Almonte became a powerhouse in academics and athletics and the Carp contingent was a big part of that. The late Graham ‘Doc’ Armstrong, long after his retirement from a long career in administration in Ottawa and Ottawa-Carleton, remembered that his three years in Almonte remained especially vivid. ‘Doc’ said that one of the best places to be on Planet Earth was at Almonte

Events – If you and your children love spending time in the calm, quiet, fresh air of the great outdoors in the evening, but value the creature comforts of your own beds at night, camping might not be the summer pastime for your family. This Friday July 22, and Friday July 29, you’re in luck because the staff at Pinhey’s Point Historic Site have come up with an evening of fun that just might spark your interest. At 8 p.m. bring the kids to Pinhey’s Point as the museum will be hosting one of its most popular

summer events, Campfire and Storytelling. Grab a blanket and gather round the campfire under the stars to hear stories, legends, and folk tales. Roast marshmallows as fireflies dance over head and soak up the nighttime atmosphere. This week’s theme is: popular traditional European folk tales.

A HOME YOU CAN CALL YOUR OWN Quality homes designed Built with you in mind

EMILY PEARCE Pinhey’s Point Historical Site

New clubs at Pinhey’s Point aim to get your children out, about and active in the world. Just because you’re in Ottawa doesn’t mean you have to stay home so make the most of your summer! The Junior Naturalist Club, Green Thumbs Club and Wonderkids each offer something new and different to you and your little ones. From exploring geology to tracking animals, there isn’t one that should be missed. For those elementary school adventurers, the Junior Naturalist Club will teach children about wild plants and animals. Participants will be able to learn about the natural world as they explore the great outdoors. Everything from invasive species to geology to neighbourhood wildlife will have your kids craving more. If you don’t have a budding Junior Naturalist on your hands, try the Green Thumbs Club. Growing vegetables and flowers every Sunday and Wednesday in July will teach your children about nature, life and the environment. With topics from the critters found in your green gardens to how to decorate with fresh cut flowers, kids will learn something new each week. The Junior Naturalist Club and Green Thumbs Club are great for older children, but big kids aren’t the only ones who get to have fun! Perfect for preschoolers, Wonderkids gives your little ones the chance to get outdoors, make new friends, and have some fun while learning new skills. With a different topic each week, your toddlers and tykes will learn about life in the pioneer days, the creepy critters living around Pinhey’s Point, how to grow vegetables and they will even get to make a scarecrow! Not just a place for kids to have fun, the museum also offers campfires and storytelling every Friday in July and August. Cuddle up under the night sky, roast marshmallows and delight in stories and tales from fascinating tellers. You don’t have to worry about whiteknuckled nights as the stories are suitable for all ages. Each program runs at Pinhey’s Point, located at 270 Pinhey’s Point Road. The Junior Naturalist Club, Green Thumbs Club and Wonderkids all have an admission fee of $6 per child. Campfire and storytelling programs cost $6 per person, $10 per couple and $16 per family. Reservations are recommended for each event.

The Broken Chain We little knew that morning, That God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you Home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

Always in our hearts, The Edwards Family & Grandmother Jean Stevenson CL25493

After the passing of her husband Stanley in 1985, Johanna remarried in 1995 to Edward Holbein and moved to White Lake, Ontario which was a place she loved and developed some very fond memories over the years. They later moved to Arnprior, Ontario and finally to “The Elliott Community” retirement complex in Guelph, Ontario. Johanna was a vibrant person who loved to enjoy life and her family. She was very proud of her family and was always there for them in times of need. Her smile, laugh and love will be greatly missed.

)

(Veteran WWII (1940-1945) – Royal Canadian Navy – Volunteer Reserves) September 12, 1919 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 9 July 2011, at age 91, in Ottawa, Ontario. Educated in Winnipeg at the Isaac Brock and David McIntyre public schools, his parents Rose May and Richard Charles Pinnell, moved in 1935 to a farm near Warren, Manitoba. John graduated from the Warren Consolidated High School and took a correspondence course for Grade 12. He joined the Navy in 1940 as a “wireless operator” and saw service primarily on the North Atlantic. After the war, he entered second year at the University of Manitoba where he graduated from 5th year Physics and Mathematics (Honours) in 1949. Employment was difficult in these years, so he migrated to Toronto and was employed as an engineer for Philips (with research in Holland). In 1951 he married Audrey Carol Albee who was working as a medical secretary. He moved to Montreal and was hired as a “radar engineer” with RCA Victor, and subsequently as a “transistor engineer”. The year 1955 saw the birth of their first son, and the formation of a company called Pylon Electronic Development Company Ltd with his brother Stanley and Herb Laks. John became President and 30 years later retired as Chairman of the Board. Predeceased by his wife Audrey of 59 years, he will be sadly missed by his three sons John Peter (m. Victoria Chandler), Richard James, and Edward Albee (m. Rosemary Drziak), his seven grandchildren: John Richard, Charles (m. Maria Arias Montecillo), Katherine, Diana, Rolf, Erika and Hans Pinnell and his brothers Robert and Stanley Pinnell. Family and friends are invited to the Pilon Family Funeral Home, 50 John Street North, Arnprior, Ontario for visitation on Saturday, July 30th, 2011 from 1 p.m. until 2:45 p.m., immediately followed by a religious service in the Pilon Family Chapel at 3 o’clock. Interment will then take place at the Malloch Road Cemetery, Arnprior. The family wishes to express their thanks to personal caregivers; Akua Agyeman, Sonia Banton, and Erma Sandiford and the staff of Peter D. Clark. In lieu of flowers, donations to Peter D. Clark L.T.C. would be appreciated.

Community connections help prevent crime JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

The best way to avoid being a victim of summer-time crimes is to know the people living in the area, said a man who works for Crime Prevention Ottawa. Michael Justinich, a business analyst with CPO, said being on speaking terms with neighbours is one of the top crime prevention measures a person can take. “Having neighbours watch out for your house if you’re away on vacation can help,” he said, adding it’s smart to stop paper and mail delivery as well. “If they notice a big cube van parked in the driveway and no one is supposed to be home, then they can call the police.” He added the more connected the people in a community are, the more they will look out for one another. “It increases the quality of life,” said Justinich, a former teacher and police officer. “It increases the feeling of safety.”

A good way to go about meeting people living on the street is to host a block party or barbeque, he said. The Ottawa police also offer a free home safety check, where a volunteer will look over a person’s house and give options on how to increase the home’s security. “We work with the cops,” said Justinich, who lives in Stittsville with his family. “We’re always encouraging people with taking advantage of relevant options.” Drive around the suburbs of Ottawa during the day time and it’s likely a number of garage doors will be wide open with no tenant visible as they tend to gardens and mow lawns. “I think part of that is kind of positive,” said Justinich. “People are feeling safe in their community.” He added keeping car and house doors locked, and shutting the garage door if not in plain sight will help deter thefts of opportunity.

Such activity can be the result of something valuable – such as a bike sitting in the garage or a GPS unit on the dashboard of a car – being visible, with no security devices to stop the perpetrator. “Keeping your car locked, your doors locked, the garage door closed are smart things,” he said. “But suburbs tend to feel pretty safe.” TEEN TERRORS A lack of support available for teenagers and youth in the summer can help contribute to acts such as vandalism and drinking in public. The “awkward years,” as Justinich called it, includes youth that are too old for daycare or a babysitter and too young to get a part-time or full-time summer job. “Try to get them volunteering,” he said as a way to keep youth busy in the summer. “Try to get them hooked up into the community.”

The hours can go towards their high school diploma and help get kids connected in the community. Knowing a teen’s friends and their parents can also cut down on the chance a youth could get in trouble with the law during the summer. Getting to know the friends and the parents of the friends helps parents keep tabs on where their teen is spending his or her time, , said Justinich. Teenagers will be less likely to use fake excuses, such as staying at “so-and-so’s house” if the parents know each other, he said. TOOLKIT CPO offers an online Neighbourhood Toolkit for residents to build community leadership and deal with unwanted issues. “The toolkit deals with kids in parks, how to meet the neighbours,” said Justinich. “There’s information on specific issues or how to build more neighbour-

hood cohesion.” Such things as how to deal with excessive speeding on residential streets, a noisy bar or drunk patrons, drinking in parks and other unsavoury behaviour is listed in the toolkit. “It’s really about organizing, getting to know people and getting to know the services available,” he said. The Toolkit has helped other city communities, such as Vanier and Bayshore, create a safer existence for residents by reducing crime rate, getting people to report issues to the police and beautifying the areas. “I think we can take some credit for that,” said Justinich about helping people feel safer. Crime Prevention Ottawa aims to contribute to crime reduction and enhanced community safety in the city through collaborative evidence-based crime prevention. For more information on the community toolkit or on CPO, visit the website at www. crimepreventionottawa.ca.

#3982 Salem Salem, an easygoing cat with a great personality, deserves to find a great, new home. The two-year-old neutered male was brought to the shelter to find a new home. Salem is affectionate, friendly and loves to be petted. He is good with other cats and is very gentle.

#3997 Murphy Murphy is an active two-year-old Beagle/ Spaniel mix who was brought to the shelter as a stray and never claimed. He is an active dog who will require regular walks and activities to keep him busy. Murphy knows some basic commands but would benefit from more training. He is cratetrained and housebroken. Murphy gets along with some dogs and would be best suited in a home without cats and older children. He is very sweet and deserves to find a loving new home.
