City proposes realigning Carp River to prevent erosion Courtney Symons

It will cost $360,000 to halt erosion along the Carp River near the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre, a city committee has found. The agriculture and rural affairs committee will present their findings at a committee meeting on Jan. 13 following an environmental assessment that began in September 2010. Approximately eight metres of land has been lost over a nine-year period from 1999-2008, and 10 metres total has eroded since 1991. The loss is due to a shift in the main channel of the Carp River in Fitzroy Harbour, and the river continues to

creep dangerously close to the baseball diamond next to the community centre. The study outlined seven possible solutions to redirect water flow, minimize erosion and ensure no increased risk to nearby properties. After community consultations, the committee proposed realigning the river to run the way it previously did by rebuilding the slope and reinforcing it with rip-rap – lots of little rocks placed along the base of the riverbank to protect the land. Design work would cost around $100,000 and construction around $256,000 according to the report. The committee will present their findings to city council on Jan. 25. If

passed, a 30-day public review period will follow. City spokesperson Jocelyne Turner said the goal is to complete the work in 2012, including design and construction of the project. Of the seven options proposed, the recommended solution is partial river channel retraining. Workers will fill in the area where the river is now flowing, and divert it back to its previous streamline. The strip of land installed to divert the water is called a “fill terrace,� and would be lined with large rocks. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry is backing the project. “Ongoing erosion caused by the

In the meantime, the baseball diamond is still safe to use, Turner said, and notices will be posted should this change.

EMC Lifestyle - The prayers of local winter enthusiasts have been answered and among those rejoicing are members of the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association Inc. The association reports trail status has been changed from limited to open. “All of the trails are open. It looks like it’s going to be a great snowmobiling season,” says Greg Veldhuizen, president of the association. “The trails are in good shape, considering we’ve only had a couple weeks of snow.” Work done in late fall/early winter to install culverts and repair trails has made for an even better experience for snowmobilers. Veldhuizen reminds riders that trail permits must be purchased before they make use


of the system. Funds collected from the permits go towards maintaining the trails. “You need to get a permit before you go on the trail,” he says. Permit numbers are definitely down of late, last year 478 were sold, compared to some 700 four years ago. The ‘forgotten trail’ or W17, the trail from Becks Road to Newtown Road has changed to Ferry Road, which makes for less road driving. The club says it’s waiting for Cavanagh Construction install the culvert and then this trail will be open. Also W21, from West Carleton Community Complex to ntil Thomas Dolan is closed, waiting for landowner permission and then it will be also open.

Todd Nicholson puts athleticism to test moving from sledge hockey to skeleton

EMC Sports – Todd Nicholson traded his blades for a skeleton recently, all in the name of expanding Paralympic winter sports. The Dunrobin resident and Kinburn native, now retired from national and international sledge hockey competition and the Canadian national team, was hitting a different kind of ice when he tested out an adapted skeleton sled on a sliding track in Utah. Nicholson, who turns 43 this month, was at a training facility in Park City Jan. 1-8 where he took part in the first international sliding camp. The opportunity came up following talks aimed at increasing Paralympic winter sport. Currently the only winter Paralympic sports are sledge hockey, alpine skiing, wheelchair curling and Nordic skiing/biathlon. Nicholson, a paraplegic following a car accident in 1987, is vice chair of the International Paralympic Committee’s (IPC) athletes’ council and sits on some IPC committees. So, it stands to reason he jumped at the chance to test his mettle in a sled hurling down an icy track head first when the opportunity arose. “When I was at the last International Athlete Council meetings in the United States, we approached the winter International Federations to see if anyone would be interested in helping us expand the winter Paralympic sports program,” he explained, adding bobsleigh and skeleton

skeleton, he was the first one down the track. “Not only was I the first Canadian athlete but I also volunteered to go down the track first with the adaptive device they have made for athletes with a disability to be able to slide,” he said. At the beginning of the week, he said athletes were at the Junior Start, which is turn six on the track, which is 80 storeys high and has 15 curves. From there, he and others were able to reach speeds of between 47 to 55 miles per hour (75 to 88 kilometres per hour). By the end of the week at training camp, participants were started from between turn one and two and able to reach speeds of 66 miles per hour (106 kilometres per hour). “In turn six you experienced G forces between three and four Gs and in turn 14, it was five to five-and-a-half Gs,” Nicholson recalled. “It fells like someone weighing 200 pounds is sitting on your chest.” For someone who has experienced his share of sporting thrills – including winning a gold medal with the national sledge hockey team at the winter Paralympic Games in Turin, Italy in 2006 – the rush of the skeleton was like nothing he had ever experience before. “It was good. It was one of the biggest rushes I have ever had, and I’ve gone skydiving and scuba diving,” Nicholson admitted. While he said he does not aspire to compete in the sport

stepped up to the plate and expressed interest. “We are trying to find some sports to make the Paralympics better,” Nicholson said, adding bobsleigh and skeleton are two sports which can be adapted to meet the needs of para athletes. “The United States has had an adaptive bobsleigh program for the past six or seven years but it is only in Park City,” Nicholson explained. He was joined in Utah by IPC chair Bob Balk, who also did runs on the track and tested sleds made and designed for para athletes. The sliding camp attracted 17 athletes representing seven different countries and two continents. In order to get bobsleigh and skeleton into the Paralympic Winter Games, eight countries representing two continents must be on board. Nicholson noted International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation president David Kurtz, attended the training camp as an observer. “I was the only Canadian athlete that represented the Skeleton side and Brian McPherson from Edmonton, Alberta was the only representative for bobsleigh. The able body athletes that are competing internationally from different countries have done some of the research and have helped with the design of the equipment to make sure it is safe yet still gives you the rush from the sport,” Nicholson explained. With a modified sled in hand, Nicholson not only tried

Megan Cornell seeks the education minister’s intervention over proposed Grade 7 to 12 model

5670 Carp Rd., Kinburn 613-580-2424 ext 32246

By JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland. com

Ward 5 West Carleton-March Think twice before venturing onto the ice Even though December temperatures have been mild, the Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition wants to remind residents that when the temperatures go down, awareness of the dangers of being on or around ice and open water needs to go up. When water begins to freeze on rivers, lakes, the Rideau Canal and other open bodies of water it may look solid but is often still dangerous. If you want to go out onto the ice, remember the thickness should be: * 15 cm for walking or skating alone * 20 cm for skating parties or games * 25 cm for snowmobiles * 35 cm for fishing huts As a guideline, clear blue ice is usually the strongest; white opaque or snow ice is half as strong as blue ice. Grey ice is unsafe. The greyness indicates the presence of water.

EMC News – Megan Cornell, the former co-chair of the Kanata North Accommodation Review Committee, is calling on the Ministry of Education to block a potential policy change by the Ottawa public school board that could see grades 7 and 8 students moved to their area high schools. The committee recommendation is aimed at dealing with severe overcrowding in the area’s elementary schools. But Cornell said the school board’s “decades of mismanagement” that created the overcrowding problem should not force a “major structural shift” in schools in only one area of the city, which would see Earl of March and West Carleton secondary schools adopt the grades 7 to 12 model. “This is an educational policy change which should be considered board-wide and not used as a stop-gap measure to address a critical problem,

which has arisen as a result of not building enough schools in a timely fashion,” said Cornell, who stepped down from her position on the committee when she ran as the Liberal candidate for Carleton-Mississippi Mills in the last provincial election. “In my mind, if you’re going to do something that dramatic you want to talk about it board wide. I just have a vision of them experimenting with this in Kanata.” The accommodation review committee, made up of teacher and parent volunteers from public schools in Kanata north to address the overcrowding issue, presented its two proposed ideas to the board in December. One of those solutions includes building a new elementary school, something which Cornell said she doesn’t see happening in the immediate future. The second involves moving all grades 7 and 8 students to either Earl of March or West Carleton secondary schools. Cornell sent a letter to Lau-

In December, I held my first Ward 5 Christmas Food Drive by asking folks to drop off non-perishable food items at my ward office. I was simply overwhelmed by the generosity shown by residents. The food drive was a huge success! Four large boxes were filled to the brim with food items! Everything donated went directly to the West Carleton Emergency Food Aid to help Ward 5 families in need. For everyone that drop off donations, thank you so much for your kindness. It’s times like these that truly make my job as Councillor so rewarding.

Gary Wheeler, spokesperson for the Ministry of Education, said in an email the ministry has “no authority to intervene in school board decisions related to pupil accommodation.” Elected trustees and local boards are in the best position to make accommodation decisions and choose how they offer educational services to students, said Wheeler. The ministry can only get involved after trustees have voted on a course of action, Wheeler said. If the community doesn’t agree with the decision, it can submit a request to the ministry to perform an administrative review, he said. Trustees will make their final decision based on the recommendations on April 24. “Grades 7 to 12 schools are an increasingly common ac-

commodation model around the province,” said Wheeler. “Grade configuration is a school board responsibility and an individual board may have a variety of grade configurations in their schools.” Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School in Nepean, which opened in 2009, is the only high school in the public board to currently have a grades 7 to 12 model. “Beyond that the board has no experience with this,” said Cornell, who has one child in junior kindergarten at W. Erskine Johnston Public School, and one starting school next year. Cornell said the board was “pushing” the accommodation review committee to adopt a grades 7 to 12 model for the Earl of March and West Carleton high schools. “I felt, as a member of the ARC, there was a really strong mandate from board staff to push through this 7 to 12 model,” said Cornell. “(The committee is) not supposed to be directed by the board at all and I felt there was a strong push from the board. “Without the ministry intervening and pushing the board to take a more thorough look at this, they’re going to make the wrong decision.” If the decision to create a grades 7 to 12 high-school model is approved, it would most likely be a permanent move, said Cornell.

rel Broten, Ontario’s Minister of Education, asking her to step in and ensure if a grades 7 to 12 high school model is proposed, it is looked at across the entire board and not just in Kanata. “Whether 7 to 12 secondary schools are a good educational policy choice or not is not my concern at this point,” she wrote. “I am concerned that the students in this one area of Ottawa will be subjected to the change without a board-wide discussion of either impact or implementation on an ad hoc basis.”

2012 NHL All Star Weekend By Jim Watson From January 26th to the 29th, Ottawa will be hosting the 2012 NHL ALL-Star Weekend. This is going to be a tremendous event for our city and I am incredibly proud of the hard work done by Eugene Melnyk, Cyril Leeder and everyone over at the Ottawa Senators organization for making this happen. I’m also proud of City Council for investing $200,000 to bring this one-of-a-kind event to Canada’s capital! All Star Weekend will bring $30 million of economic activity to our hotels, restaurants and shops. The game will be broadcast in over 150 countries and with over 400 accredited media members, our city will be given exposure as the world-class destination it is. Hosting the All Star game is great in itself but what will make this event particularly special for us is that not one but FOUR Ottawa Senators will be in the starting lineup! Milan Michalek, Erik Karlsson, Jason Spezza, and Daniel Alfredsson were all voted into the starting lineup with the great support of Sens Army. I want to thank everyone for voting and getting their friends to vote so that these players can showcase the talent of our great team. Hosting the All Star Game would not have been possible without the creation of the Ottawa Convention Centre. This beautiful facility in the heart of downtown has been a big boost to our City since it opened its doors last year thanks to a lot of hard work by former Mayor Jim Durrell, OCC President Pat Kelly and their dedicated team. And we are going to see a lot of more events of this nature thanks to the OCC, as well as other initiatives City Council is driving. For example, through the creation of a Special Events Office with Ottawa Tourism we are working to bring the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup to town and have already landed the 2012 JUNOS and the 2013 IIHF Women’s World Cup of Hockey. All Star Weekend will also mark the opening of the Rink of Dreams at City Hall, and I hope you and your family have a chance to come down and enjoy this gorgeous outdoor ice rink. So let’s celebrate Canada’s game right here in our nation’s capital and cheer on our four Ottawa Senators who are in the starting lineup, making our city proud! If you would like to see the full list of events for All Star Weekend have a look at our events page at www.

Housing fix hampered by red tape There may only be one goal when it comes to affordable housing, eliminating homelessness, but there are many paths to that solution. Affordable housing is easily one of the most complex files at city hall. Even a veteran councillor, Innes Ward’s Rainer Bloess, recently admitted to having a tenuous grasp on the file. When Mayor Jim Watson’s administration decided to pour $14 million into a new housing and homelessness strategy

last year, the money was divvied up into a dizzying array of projects – 15, to be exact. It’s a testament to the reality that individuals and families face housing insecurity for a host of reasons, and there are just as many ways to tackle those problems. That dilemma came up again at city hall recently. The federal and provincial governments are re-jigging their affordable housing funding into a new program, and Ottawa stands to get $26 million.

But the question was which pile to put the money in. Would it be operational costs, which could mean housing allowances, rent supplements and much-needed maintenance for existing affordable housing? Or would it be capital costs, which would allow the city to leverage the money into building new affordable housing that would ease some of the pressure on the short supply of housing and the long list of people waiting for

access to it? Ultimately, city staff recommended the latter and the planning committee agreed. Part of the thinking is that the city’s hands are really tied if it earmarked that money for operational costs. Funding from upper levels of government always comes with rules, and unfortunately for the city, the rules of the Investment in Affordable Housing Program limit the types of operational costs the money may be used for. We already know that Ot-

tawa Community Housing, the city’s largest provider of affordable housing, has a huge backlog of maintenance work it needs to undertake to ensure existing housing units are inhabitable. Perhaps if the provincial and federal governments left municipalities to make their own decisions, we might be in a better position to tackle each piece of the affordable housing pie. Leveraging the funding to find private or non-profit developers who want to build and operate affordable housing is a good idea, but it doesn’t do much to ensure people can keep living in the housing we’re already providing.

It may have been the best decision given the circumstances, but it probably wouldn’t be considered the best decision if provincial and federal governments hadn’t imposed restrictions. That’s the message that Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley and his fellow planning committee members tried to send with a motion asking the upper levels of government to give more flexibility to municipalities and support their ability to make decisions that make sense for their communities. But history shows that those concerns will likely fall on deaf ears.


As if movies weren’t bad enough CHARLES GORDON Funny Town With all the problems in the world, you’d think we wouldn’t go looking for more, but that’s the way human beings are. If we weren’t that way the world would have fewer problems. So here’s the new problem we are on the verge of creating: booze in movie theatres. Sheesh. As any serious movie-goer knows, the movie theatre is already overloaded with problematic behaviour. There are talkers and texters, popcorn spillers and candy-unwrappers. For each offender, there is a sensitive victim, a person so consumed by anxiety over cellphone glows or cellophane crackles that he cannot concentrate on the screen. And now, someone is thinking of adding beer and wine drinkers to the mix? Indeed. The talk so far centres on the planned Empire Theatres at the redeveloped Lansdowne Park, but other theatres will want to get in on the act if it is successful at Lansdowne. Temporary licenses have been issued in the past so there is no small chance that permanent licenses could be had and the movie theatre as cocktail lounge become part of the landscape. It is peculiar that the issue has arisen at all. Can anyone remember a loud public outcry in favour of beer and wine in movie theatres? Have people been refusing to go to the movies because they can’t get a drink? Were there demonstrations? There has been some debate on the subject already. There are people who grudgingly accept the idea, if there are alcohol-free options available – in other words, so long as not every movie theatre is licensed. Others have used the occasion to reopen the whole Lansdowne Park debate, which heaven knows there’s been

enough of. And there has been the standard defence of the idea, best exemplified in an Ottawa Citizen editorial: “Ontario is very slowly shaking off its temperance-league attitudes and realizing that treating all adults as if they were children isn’t necessary to prevent public disorder,” the editorial says. “If nightclubs and pubs and restaurants can be trusted to ask for ID from customers and refuse to serve the already drunk, surely movie theatres can be trusted to do the same.” Some big and little quibbles can be made with that argument. Nightclubs and pubs are equipped to ask for ID and discourage drunken behaviour. Theatres are not. To ask them to do so with existing staff may be expecting too much. The larger argument stems from the editorial’s reference to Ontario’s “temperanceleague attitudes.” There is a familiar kind of Canadian inferiority complex on display here, a feeling that we are somehow less sophisticated than other peoples because our province has not become an open bar. There is a longing for Canada to become somehow more European, where, it is thought, string quartets play on every street corner while 11-year-olds sip Chablis at the dining room table. But, for better or worse, we are not Europe. The better part is that the 11-year-olds get to watch hockey games and the grown-ups have a far lower rate of cirrhosis of the liver. The worse part about not being Europe is that many of us continue to display a North American attitude toward licensed beverages – which is to say that we consume as many of them as we can in a short period of time and proceed to converse loudly, sometimes about the hockey game, sometimes not. And while many of us are the kinds of people who are capable of sipping one beer quietly in the cinema, what are the odds that it’s the other kind, the adults who should be treated as if they were children, who will be sitting behind you while you’re trying to watch the movie? Tipsy, it will take them even longer to take off the cellophane candy wrapper.

The adrenalin-filled emotional rollercoaster of life on the farm Accidental Farmwife routine with the calf again, successfully luring Julie into the barn. Finally. I was exhausted. On the way back through the barn, I stopped to fill up the water trough. Rambo came over to see what I was doing, and I patted him on the head. Big mistake. Next thing I know I’m on the ground, and my thigh hurts where Rambo has head-butted me. I can see Rambo’s lining himself up for another hit. I jump to my feet, kick my leg

it’s mucky and cold. But at least it’s warmer than outside.

The little guy just doesn’t have the reflex and as time passes it is less and less likely that he will recover. We spent most of today trying to get Ginger’s calf to suckle. The little guy just doesn’t have the reflex and as time passes it is less and less likely that he will recover. I can get him to drink a bottle of milk replacer, but it just

isn’t the same. The Farmer managed to steal some valuable colostrum from Ginger (against her will—she wants to kill my husband with those big feet of hers) and fed it to the calf. The calf seems to have enough energy but that too will fade as the temperature drops if he doesn’t start to suckle. We gave him a shot of selenium and the Farmer has just run into town to get more Vitamin A, D and E. I will go out in another couple hours and feed him two more pints of milk replacer, but we may just be postponing the inevitable. Not all endings are happy ones on the farm.

EMC Lifestyle - Early last week I went out on a mild pre-snow morning and found Julie’s calf in the hay under the feeder. The little thing was about the size of a black lab. I picked her up, waved her under mama’s nose and backed myself up into the barn. Julie started to follow me in, but as I was tucking the calf into a stall I realized the bull had followed me in first. Just then the Farmer shows up. Why does he always show up just at the moment when I am royally screwing up? “Great. Now how are you going to get him out of here?!” the Farmer inquired. Young Angus swung his big bull head around, bumping into the medicine cabinet and work shelf, threatening to knock them both to the floor. This is not the first time that I have thought, thank goodness he’s a really tame bull. I scooped up some sweet feed, squeezed past him out the door and waited for him to negotiate a 3-point turn back out of the barn. Then I had to do the whole bait-and-wait

gent across the snowy field, for no good reason other than to search for the best place in which to give birth. Later that day she had settled for the barn, and she was starting to show signs of labour. We locked her in, but had to usher Young Angus out first. He didn’t want to miss the show this time. He is always very interested in the new calves and stands staring at them for a long time. Sometime after midnight the Farmer went out and found Ginger with her new calf. He put the calf on a trolley and moved the new little family into a warm, dry lambing pen. Well it was dry, anyway. Now



in his general direction, and shriek something at him. I think the shriek startled him more than the kick did. His rock head is much harder than my shin. He was sizing me up for another smack, so I took off out of the barn, the big fat sheep hot on my heels. I jumped into the cattle chute and he finally wandered away, with an unmistakable swagger. I sat for a moment and let the adrenalin drain from my veins. In my five years knowing Rambo, he has never attempted to hit me. Then again, I usually tickle him under the chin. The Farmer says the pat on the head is a direct challenge to his ram-hood. And then it was Ginger’s turn to calve. I was first to notice her heading off on a tan-

For ducks, staying warm can mean cooling down

EMC Lifestyle - Just this past Sunday I visited Presqu’ile Provincial Park on Lake Ontario. It was a cold morning, but as there was lots of sunshine and no wind, it was an ideal day to be looking for birds. Presqu’ile is a fabulous place for seeing ducks and that day was no exception. Thousands of Long-tailed Ducks (formerly ‘Oldsquaw’) dotted Lake Ontario, which was uncharacteristically calm. There were hundreds of Greater Scaups, and dozens of Redheads, Common Goldeneyes, tiny Buffleheads, and Mute Swans. A Peregrine Falcon sat on the ice, leaving only to dive

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way bomb a young Bald Eagle, which made several unsuc-

cessful passes at a Longtailed Duck. I spent a lot of time watching the ducks. I marvelled at how the water immediately rolled off their backs as soon as they surfaced, a feature facilitated by plenty of oil rubbed in during preening episodes, and the extremely tight weave of the feathers. The water was ice cold yet they swam and dove with impunity. Their thick and copious feathers, overlying an insulating coat of down next to the skin, provided a perfect barrier to the cold water and any body part thus covered was kept warm. However, the feet and legs lacked any covering, yet this

did not seem to be a problem for their owners, regardless if they are swimming in icy water or standing on the ice. Ducks, geese and gulls own a special heat exchanger in the base of their legs. Here, the main artery and vein split up into smaller vessels that wrap around each other, forming a net. In the net, the warm blood travelling down the artery to the feet loses its heat to the cold blood in the vein returning to the heart. By the time the blood arrives at the feet, it is not 37 degrees Celsius, which it was when it entered


the net, but a mere couple of degrees above freezing. That might seem maladaptive, but a cooler foot loses less heat to the environment than a hot foot does, and heat loss causes animals problems in winter. The counter-current heat exchanger is known as the “wonderful net” or the “rete mirabile.” The net is not unique to these birds; other aquatic animals including Beavers have this structure at the base of their extremities, such as their tail. The beauty of the countercurrent system is that energy is not only saved by reducing

the amount of energy needed to keep the feet warm, it is also saved by using less energy to heat the blood returning to the heart and lungs. The net, however, is useful only in winter. In summer, animals want to lose heat through their extremity, not retain it. The blood is shunted around, not through the net, allowing the feet to heat up and lose heat to the cooler water surrounding them. While in summer, ducks and geese want to lose heat; in winter, having cold feet is a good thing! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@

EMC News – Canadians have a right to access government information, said Allison Knight, legal counsel for the Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada. “Access to information is recognized as a quasi-Constitutional right by the Supreme Court of Canada,” said Knight during a presentation at The Probus Club of Western Ottawa’s meeting Jan. 10. “It is a very important right,” she said. The Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada deals with complaints between individuals and federal institutions with regards to accessing information. “If you’re not happy with the disclosure you’ve gotten, you can make a complaint,” said Knight, who holds degrees in law and music from the University of Western Ontario. “If any of the charges (fees for processing the request) seem to be over and above what you were expecting…you can make a complaint.” Currently, her office is investigating 4,000 active complaints. “We’re a bit overwhelmed with the number of complaints coming in,” said Knight. “We have a lot of work.” The Access to Information Act came into effect under the federal government in 1983. Each province and territory also has its own laws relating to information access. Under the federal act, government information should be made available to the public, either proactively or upon request. “The core of it is this information should be available to the public,” she said. Exceptions exist, such as government’s right to refuse disclosure of records containing personal information and can refuse to disclose information that could be “injurious” to federal and provincial affairs, said Knight. Canadians may request information from any government institution, including Crown corporations. Institutions also have a “statutory duty” to help individuals formulate requests for information, said Knight, as well as to provide the information in the language and format of the individual’s choosing.

She said her office has seen a higher number of people using the access to information request form for immigration and citizenship purposes. PROBUS CLUB The Probus Club of Western Ottawa has a number of guest speakers lined up for the upcoming months. Marie Lemay, the chief executive officer of the National Capital Commission, will give a speech on Feb. 14. Grete Hale, Ottawa icon and author of “Baker’s Daughter: The Story of a long, rich and very Canadian Life,” will speak on March 13. The Probus Club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m. for coffee, followed by a guest speaker, at 33 Leacock Dr. in Kanata. The Probus Club is for retired and semi-retired men

Visit to neighbour’s a vacation from Depression Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

to the older girls in the family and my sister Audrey. Their daughter Velma was my closest friend. It was in her bed that I first experienced sleeping on a feather mattress with a feather comforter over us. And I especially remember with great fondness how, on a cold and clear winter’s night, our family would bundle up in our heaviest clothes, Father would bring the flat-bottomed sleigh to the kitchen door, and we would pile on, and head across the 20 acre field to spend an evening with the Thoms. Their log house was much larger than ours, and the boys would settle into one of the back bedrooms and we could hear the

sounds of laughter and playful scrapping coming from that direction. My sister Audrey and older Thom girls would settle in the parlour and Velma and I knew for a fact they were talking about the boys from the Northcote School, and other delicious subjects we could only imagine, but were never allowed to sit in on. Velma and I played with our dolls in the warmth of the kitchen and sometimes pulled a chair up to the table to watch Uncle Alec and Father take on Aunt Bertha and Mother in a riotous game of euchre. When it came time to serve lunch...there was always a bountiful lunch when we visited neighbours, everyone would settle into the kitchen, and sometimes Uncle Alec would take out his fiddle, Mother her mouth organ, and the music would begin. And I would look around that room...full to the brim with our two families, and I would think

we were the luckiest people in the whole of Renfrew County. By the time we were all piled back onto the sleigh, my eyes would already be drooping, and I would do everything in my power to stay awake as we went across the 20 acre field. And once we were out in the open field, and it was a cold and clear night, I would look up at the Renfrew County sky and see millions of stars lighting up my world. The untouched snow in the rest of the field would glisten as if God had spread a blanket of diamonds from one end to the other, as the moon shone down its light on our land. I tried desperately to stay awake. It only took about 20 minutes to go from the Thom house to our kitchen door, but it was long enough that I don’t ever remember arriving home awake! Yes, winters were joyous times back then. Made warm by neighbours around us, and the sheer joy of feeling a con- New York City Your choice of two hotels located in Times Square!

EMC Lifestyle - It seems to me now, so many years later, that my fondest memories are from the days of winter on the farm during those lean Depression years. Perhaps it was because during the warm summer months there was always so much work to be done. Planting, harvesting, repairing fences, tending gardens and a host of other jobs that could only be done when there was no snow on the ground. But during the winter months, we seemed to have more family time, and certainly there were many hours spent visiting neighbours, going to Saturday night house parties, and church concerts which seemed to surface regularly. We saw often our neighbours who lived across the 20 acre field, which in the summer time was planted high with grain, but in the winter, with sleighs coming and going from our house to theirs, a path just wide enough to handle the team soon took form. The Thoms were a big and boisterous family. We called them Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha, even though as far as I knew they were no relation whatsoever. But back in those days, youngsters wouldn’t dream of calling an adult by his or her first name. Their boys and ours played together, skated on the Bonnechere, set snares for rabbits, walked to school together, and were a constant aggravation

Plaza good news for Carp Nominate a great place in City of Ottawa cross into the flood-plain area. Karson has been working with the city and Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) to amend the flood-plain boundary and get approvals for the parking lot within the edge of the flood plain. The flood plain represents the area that could be waterlogged by the type of flooding experts estimate could take place once in 100 years: a “100-year flood plain.” The Karson family also owns the farmland across the river from the Karson yard, and received approval to excavate some land from that side of the river to re-balance the flood plain and make it less likely for water to flood the village side of the river, where the plaza would be. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry says the city and the MVCA are both on board with the changes. “They believe it will be healthier to the river, because right now you have trucks,

and it doesn’t matter how much you say they don’t leak. Sometimes they leak oil,” he said. “So this will be, in my opinion, healthier for the Carp River than the current situation we have there.” More work will also be done to re-vegetate the shoreline to aid water runoff and rebuild the plant life and wildlife habitat along the shore, where the gravel yard now runs right up to the shoreline, Karson said. “We’d like to have a bit of a buffer,” Karson said. “It will both spruce it up esthetically and serve as mitigation that the environmental impact on the river.” Delays mean the project is still a couple of years down the road, and the construction business has yet to secure another location (hopefully closer to it’s quarry, Karson said) to move to. But the family, which has raised several generations in the Village of Carp, is still “100 per cent committed” to the project, Karson said.

Chickpeas make these meatless patties EMC Lifestyle – In answer to the enquiry about the orange oatmeal bread that was in my Jan. 5 column, set your bread machine to make a 2 lb. loaf. Over 30 years ago, a vegetarian friend introduced me to falafel at a Middle Eastern restaurant in Ottawa. I had no idea what to expect when she ordered them, but I was hooked after the first mouthful. The falafel were meatless patties made with cooked chickpeas that had been ground and seasoned with cumin, garlic and onion. They were served in pita bread, with a slice of dill pickle. Even now, just remembering them makes my mouth water. Falafel are an acquired taste though. If you like the flavour of spices such as garlic and cumin, you’ll probably enjoy them. They are often served with lettuce, tomato, and a cucumber sauce. Made with yogurt, peanut butter and cucumber, the sauce may sound unusual, but it has just the right combination of tart and sweet flavours. The falafel patties are easy to make at home using canned chickpeas. When you buy the pita or flat bread, check that the package label specifies

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

that the bread has a “pocket”. Some don’t and, for this recipe, you’ll want the type that you can stuff. Falafel 540 mL can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1 medium onion, finely chopped 1/3 cup bread crumbs 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, or 1 tbsp dried 1 clove garlic, minced 1/4 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. salt 1 tbsp. cumin seed 2-3 tbsp. water (see directions) Cucumber Sauce 1 cup yogurt 1/4 cup peanut butter 2 tbsp. lemon juice 1/2 clove garlic, minced (optional) a dash of salt and pepper 1 cup cucumber, peeled and diced 3 pocket pita bread, shredded lettuce, and diced tomato. Sliced dill pickle is optional. To make the falafel patties,

combine the chickpeas, onion, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, pepper and salt in a food processor. Rub the cumin seeds in the palm of your hand to break them up, then add them. Process until smooth. If the mixture looks dry or climbs up the side of the food processor bowl, add 2 to 3 tbsp. of water. Roll the mixture into 12 balls, and flatten them slightly. Lightly spray a non-stick frying pan with cooking oil spray. Add the falafel patties, and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. To prepare the cucumber sauce, thoroughly mix the yogurt, peanut butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor. Transfer the sauce to a bowl, and stir in the diced cucumber. When the falafel are ready, warm the pita bread for about 15 seconds in the microwave oven. Cut each pita bread in half, and gently separate the top and bottom crust to form a pocket. Place two or three falafel patties in each half, then add chopped tomato and shredded lettuce. Spoon some cucumber sauce over this, and serve immediately.

Winter West festival stretches out season By JESSICA CUNHA

EMC Events – The Winter West festival has undergone a change in format since last year’s inaugural weekend event. The Kanata Chamber of Commerce, which created the idea behind last year’s winter carnival, decided to switch things up this year, said Megan Cornell, co-ordinator for Winter West and past president of the Chamber. “We totally reorganized the concept,” she said. “Last year we tried to make it all in one weekend and we realized that so many communities have their events and weekends (pre) chosen.” This year, Winter West is acting as a promotional resource for the season’s activities being held throughout Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton. Community associations and groups can list their winter events for free on the website, while residents can use the website to keep up-to-date on what’s happening in their area. “We’re actually much hap-

pier with the concept of it just being a promotion of winter activities that is very organic,” said Cornell. “It was always meant to be a tourism thing – that side of what the chamber does – promoting our area as a whole.” Cornell said the new approach to Winter West is meant to bolster tourism in the west end of the city – something all city-dwellers and visitors to the Nation’s Capital can enjoy. “We were so pleased with the idea of having a tourism or a regional promotion wing of what we do,” she said. “We just wanted to help other people promote their events.” After the festival last year, which took place over the first weekend in February, the Chamber canvassed residents to get their reactions. Community groups that didn’t participate cited having other weekends already chosen for their events, and a number of residents said it was too difficult to try and attend everything over a twoday period. “It makes sense to not try to do one weekend,” said Cor-

nell. Winter West now runs from November to March. “I think it’s a real show of the diversity of our community and how we have all these little separate communities where people have these great events that they do,” said Cornell. The Chamber is also in talks to create a summer festival along the same lines. UPCOMING EVENTS * Kanata: The Briarbrook, Brookside and Morgan’s Grant Community Association will host its annual Winter Family Fun Day at Sandhill Rink, off Kinghorn Crescent, on Sunday, Jan. 22, from 1 to 3 p.m. * West Carleton: The annual Fitzroy Harbour Winter Carnival will take place from Jan. 26 to 28, at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre, located at 100 Clifford Campbell St. The carnival includes a spaghetti dinner on the Thursday, a Texas Hold’em poker night on Friday, an outdoor hockey jamboree and annual trivia night, both on Saturday.

Ag. and Rural Affairs Committee supports Carp River realignment By THERESA FRITZ

EMC News – Ottawa city council is expected to approve a plan aimed at curbing the erosion of land along the Carp River near the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre. During the Jan. 13 Agriculture and Rural Rural Affairs Committee, committee members unanimously endorsed a report and plan that will see the river run the way it did previously, by rebuilding the slope and reinforcing it with rip-rap. This erosion control technique involves placing lots of smaller rocks along the base of the riverbank to pro-

water is called a “fill terrace,” and would be lined with large rocks. The cost of the work is estimated at $256,000 with design and supporting services estimated at $100,000. The report endorsed by the committee indicated land has been eroding steadily since 1991, and approximately eight metres of land was lost from 1999-2008. The loss is due to a shift in the main channel of the Carp River in Fitzroy Harbour, and the river continues to creep dangerously close to the baseball diamond which is located next to the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre. Project manager Kevin Cover said that only one more metre can afford to be lost before affecting the baseball diamond  right along the river. The diamond is the home diamond of several teams including the West Carleton Electric Men’s Fastball Club of the intermediate level Greater Ottawa Fastball League. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry is in support of the work, having expressed concern that doing nothing could pose a safety risk. “We need to stop the erosion. This has been going on for a long time,” he said. “Now it is a must do.” Money for the work will be coming from the 2012 city budget. El-Chantiry said he does not believe there will be any opposition from council when the matter comes forward for adoption. During the 30-day review period, residents can contact Kevin Cover at 613-580-2424 x22830 or (With files from Courtney Symons)

In the rural areas, you may have also noticed a unique way of keeping the roads free of snow by using standing corn as an alternative to tradtional snow fencing. This has proven to be an economical and ecological way for the city to provide a

safer driving surface during the winter months while preventing accidental damage to tile drains on agricultural land when installing traditional snow fencing. Rural roadside mailboxes that are damaged by the snowplow (excluding the snow that comes off of the wing of the snow plow) may be eligible for repair or replacement by the city.

Senators enjoy getting ‘social’ with fans


While Anderson admits “you’ve got to be careful with it,” he’s enjoyed the Twitter relationship he’s building with fans. “For me, it’s actually been quite an experience,” said the Senators No. 1 stopper, (@ CraigAnderson41), who also maintains a Facebook fan page. “I didn’t really know what to expect going into it. It gives fans a more personal scenario where they can be in touch with the players and it gives them another avenue to have a conversation without having a conversation. It makes them feel special and makes them feel like they’re part of the hockey world.” Senators forward Erik Condra agreed social media has the ability to change the relationship between the player and the fan. “Hopefully, they see more that we’re regular people and we do the same stuff that they do,” said the rookie forward (@ECondra), who had a rather simple reason for getting into this game. “The whole world is going through a social media frenzy and it’s better to be a part of it and know what’s going on than to be left in the dust.

By Rob Brodie Social media, it might be said, has exploded into the defining force of a generation. Whether it’s sharing news with friends on Facebook or posting quickie thoughts that come to mind on Twitter, the world has indeed become a much smaller place thanks to these new creations, both of which involve hundreds of millions of users. And neither is going away anytime soon. So perhaps it’s hardly surprising that the power of social media would make an impact on the world of professional sports. More specifically, the relationship between the fan and those who play the games they follow so ardently. “It’s a good way to interact with fans,” said forward Jesse Winchester (@jwinch18), one of four players on the current Ottawa Senators roster to delve into the world of Twitter. “I can see myself doing that in some capacity.” Senators goaltender Craig Anderson originally saw social media as a way to maintain contact with netminders who took part in goalie camps he’s run over the past few summers. But he’s since discovered it’s also an interesting, more personal way to connect with the team’s fan base.

Community associations to join forces under Kanata north umbrella KLCA president wants to present a united voice By JESSICA CUNHA

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kanata northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community associations are joining forces to lobby against developments that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit within the character of the neighbourhoods. The Kanata Lakes, Kanata Beaverbrook, and Briarbrook, Brookside and Morganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant community associations have all agreed to unite under the banner of the Kanata North Council of Community Associations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a name which could change â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on Monday, Jan. 16. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want us to present a united voice to the city,â&#x20AC;? said Matt Muirhead, president of the Kanata Lakes Community Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize the needs of Kanata north and our demands that proper planning be executed in the area.â&#x20AC;? The city hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conducted proper planning in terms of the Beaver Pond development, which is owned by KNL Developments, or in the proposed 16-storey highrise, which is in the works for Beaverbrook, said Muirhead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am having a very difficult time in trusting the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning department until they show me they can be trusted,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this is happening here, you can bet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happen-

ing all across the City of Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? Gary Sealey, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, said the united community associations will help improve public services and the strengths of neighbourhoods, as well as address the urgent issues affecting Kanata north. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have current and important issues, including a serious sickness with public planning, on which the public needs action,â&#x20AC;? said Sealey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope that by working together the public will be served.â&#x20AC;? PUBLIC MEETING The umbrella association is hosting a public meeting for all residents of Kanata north to address the new findings concerning the lands north of the Beaver Pond and the plans involving the proposed highrise in Beaverbrook at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26, at All Saints Catholic High School in Kanata Lakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The constant rezoning of areas is something we want to address as a community as a whole,â&#x20AC;? said Muirhead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to have some say in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in our community.â&#x20AC;? There will also be work-

ing groups, where residents can discuss what they see as the identity of Kanata, what makes the community unique and how they would like to see it grow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the first step to what I think is going to be a movement in Kanata north, and then beyond,â&#x20AC;? said Muirhead. His vision is to develop a proactive approach to development within Kanata north and then the city as a whole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a city-wide vision,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we have established what good planning practices areâ&#x20AC;Śthen the city will have to listen and other community associations across the city will hopefully join us.â&#x20AC;? Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said she thinks the grouping of the associations is a good idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important on some issues that are sort of for the whole area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very large associations; they cover a very large territory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots of things to talk about.â&#x20AC;? Muirhead said he will be speaking with the Village Green and March Rural community associations as well about joining the council and attending the meeting.

Ontario hospitals list top managers pay Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital lists its CEO’s compensation on its website By DEREK DUNN

EMC News - Ontario hospitals made public the contracts of their top managers Jan. 3, with Arnprior District Memorial Hospital’s CEO Eric Hanna coming in at $192,406. Many hospitals disclosed the information three days after they became subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Ontario Hospital Association president and CEO Tom Closson said he released the information to build trust with taxpayers. “Hospitals’ decision to proactively disclose their key material signals a strong commitment to transparency, accountability, and the importance of building the trust and confidence among the people they serve,” Closson said in a press release. ADMH’s four highest managers, according to last year’s “sunshine list,” came in at a combined $522,116. Hanna doesn’t find the announcement of salaries new or unsettling, saying market conditions dictate appropriate

pay. Were he to do comparable work as a small hospital CEO in the private sector, he said – citing the Manley Report - he would be paid more. While private sector wages can be pegged to profitability, Hanna’s is tied to performance. The ADMH board of directors has eight goals laid out for him related to quality of care. However, he agreed hospital employees derive moral satisfaction in their work on top of monetary compensation. Hanna, with 24 years working in hospitals, left for a stint as a consultant. “I get more satisfaction by bringing more benefits to the community,” he said. CEOs often note they are merely paid what others in similar positions receive; but when critics say all are overpaid, there is rarely a counter argument. There is also the question of whether high wages in areas such as hospitals result in marked improvements since many problems – such as aging demographics – are out of the CEOs’ control.

Asked if the administrators best qualified for such a position are the ones who would rather cut their own salaries than, say, raise parking lot fees, Hanna said the best qualified person would take a look at the overall financial situation. “Those are the two extremes,” he said, adding a freeze on managers’ salaries hasn’t been matched by unionized workers. Still, Hanna understands the scrutiny. “I do realize it is public expenditures,” he said. “But I need to be competitive (when hiring), as well. You gotta pay what the market is.”

EXPENSES MADE PUBLIC The province mandated the publication of executives’ expenses from April 1 to Sept. 30, 2011, under the categories travel, parking, accommodations and meals. Descriptions include oneword terms such as meetings, conferences, and education. The breakdown of the follow-

ing expenses is available at • President and CEO Eric Hanna $4,243.05; • VP of finance and support services Tim Sonnenburg $1,151.98; • VP patient and residential services Leah Levesque $1,560.89; • VP human resources Michelle Lewis $2,547.36; • Manager of communications and fund development Wendy Knechtel $928.65; • Chief of staff Dr. Christine Schriver $2,257.73; • Board member Gina Pilon $553.70. The chair of the board of directors, Steve Hudson, is free to ask for details on expenses to ensure they are tied to the corporation’s priorities. Hanna said it may have been true more than a decade ago that some abuse of the system occurred. For instance, tax dollars were used to pay for some hospital CEOs attending political fundraisers. That hasn’t been allowed for many years. On the other hand, it is un-

Pests turn out to be culprits of supposed break-in EMC News - Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 33 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of Jan. 1 to Jan. 7. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the Highway Traffic laws, responding to false 9-1-1 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa Fire, Paramedics and By-law services.

CONST. JEON Ottawa Police Service lected up the caller’s data and stitched them together to form a mental picture of the situation at ground zero. Through the cold night air flew the caller’s real time observations: I can hear banging


and knocking sounds coming from the wall; there were three to four knock on the wall but now all is quiet; there are more sounds like banging noises coming from the attic; someone is hitting a wall; me and my family are feeling quite scared; my husband thinks it might be….some kind of animal in the attic. Upon pulling up on scene police officers search the property and then made their way into the house. As the officers homed in on the odd noises that reverberated through the walls an officer pokes his head into the attic space and found the supporting evidence to their suspicions -animal feces.

SIGN OF THE TIMES A complainant travelling through Constance Bay called police on Monday afternoon, Jan. 2, after she observed two young males attempting to load a street sign into the truck of their car. After circling around a couple of times the complainant successfully takes note of the car’s licence plate number and street sign names: Constance Bay Road and Baillie Avenue.

Upon hearing about the theft incident from police the registered owner of the vehicle immediately got in contact her son and instructed him to return the car. Once home, the teen explained to his parents and police that he and his friend had spotted the sign lying at the side of the road and decided to take it with them without realizing the significance of the signs and the role that it played in the community. HAPPY

NEW YEAR DEER Now that 2011 has come and gone it’s time to grind up the numbers to make some ‘dollars and cents’ on how these collisions impact our communities. By taking the average cost of a single deer-vehicle collision in Canada, $6,600, as reported in a 2010 vehicle insurance study, and multiplying it with the total number of deer strikes, 284, from rural west Ottawa, we can see that the total monetary cost of these deer-vehicle collisions to society is substantial: $1,874,400. So, with that said, the first week of 2012 started like this: week one netted three collisions in rural west Ottawa with two coming from West Carleton and one from Rideau-Goulbourn. The score stands at 2 to 1 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn.




BREAK AND ENTER Shortly past midnight on New Year’s Day, officers were dispatched to a residence in Constance Bay after a homeowner overheard what sounded like someone trying to break into her garage. As patrol officers quickly but cautiously navigated their way through the darkness dispatchers’ continued to stream over the airways the 911-caller’s observations to the police cruisers. Filling the cab were the familiar ‘bings’ and ‘squawk’s’ of the computer and radio as they took in the bits and pieces of data that made up the bigger picture. In addition to the complex steering and navigational processes of driving a vehicle the officer’s mind col-

Heartburn Reflux High Blood Pressure?

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 95% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy 7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. � Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC � Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA � Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. #39 Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt.

Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON �Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief.

During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS �It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with #23 these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON. � Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing.
