Almonte General Hospital’s first baby of 2017 is a girl BY TARA GESNER

Little Cecelia Cooney achieved the enviable title by arriving 11 days early, on Jan. 3 at 9:24 a.m. She weighed seven pounds and 11 ounces and measured 20 inches in length. Cecelia is the second-born child of Alexandra Hudson and Ryan Cooney. Her big brother is Hudson Cooney, three and a half years old. The family resides in Dunrobin, Ont. The title was a bit of a shock for the parents. With Hudson born 10 days early, “I thought I would be early again,” Alexandra said in an interview from the hospital’s obstetrical unit on Jan. 4. However, she never thought her daughter would be the hospital’s New Year’s baby. “It was pretty surprising,” Ryan said. Alexandra and Ryan left for Almonte General Hospital, a 20-minute drive from their home, around 11 p.m. on Jan. 2. They were in the

middle of watching the 2017 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships when Alexandra’s water broke. Canada was playing the Czech Republic. “We finished watching the hockey game first,” Ryan said with a laugh. “Priorities!” Alexandra added. It was the couple’s second delivery at Almonte General Hospital. “We knew we wanted to come back here because we had a very positive experience when Hudson was born,” Alexandra said. “There was no question.” Even though her water had broken, labour did not commence until 3 a.m. A little more than six hours later Cecelia arrived, “and it was nice that everything went as it should,” Alexandra said. Present for the birth were Dr. Baha Awwad and Dr. Ursula McGarry. Ryan noted it was nice to see a couple of familiar faces – nurses Dina Thompson and Heather Clement. “They were here when Hudson was born,” he said. Mom and dad knew they

Hudson delivered her daughter Cecelia Cooney on Jan. 3 at 9:24 a.m., making her the hospital’s first baby of 2017. (Jan. 4, 2017) were having a little girl, but they kept it a secret from Hudson. However, “he always referred to the baby as a she,” Alexandra said.

“I knew it would be a baby sister,” Hudson said with a big smile. When he first saw his sibling, he told the Canadian Gazette, “It felt kind of strange.”

Alexandra and Ryan were issued a gift basket on behalf of Almonte General Hospital. “On behalf of the hospital, I would like to offer

congratulations for having our first baby of 2017,” nurse Paisley Twigge stated. The year 2017 is also special because it marks Canada’s 150th anniversary. “We would like to thank the hospital and the staff,” Alexandra said. “This is very sweet and thoughtful.” “The staff here is absolutely amazing,” she continued. “We cannot thank them enough,” Ryan added. The young family is now looking forward to leaving the hospital, going home and continuing life. “We are hoping to be released tomorrow (Jan. 5),” Alexandra said. Hudson promised he is ready to help his mom at home with Cecelia diapers, “even if they are stinky.” Alexandra is a teacher with the Ottawa Catholic School Board. In the year 2016 she worked at a couple of schools: Georges Vanier Catholic School and St. Michael School, Fitzroy. Ryan is an elevator mechanic with Regional Elevator, which is based in Ottawa.

Ice fishing is lots of fun but has its own rules BY DAVID JOHNSTON

Winter anglers dropping a line in West Carleton waters By Dave Johnston Ice thickness is increasing on West Carleton lakes and rivers, rousing anglers to prepare for another season of ice fishing. Though some brave the elements to drop a line, others prefer the relative comfort of an ice fishing hut, placed at the best angling locations. There are specific rules and regulations for fishing in local waters at any time of year, and winter is no exception. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests (MNRF), in conjunction with local angling clubs and licenced vendors, oversee the ice fishing sport with regulations. No matter where you take your auger, it’s vital that you put safety first, says the MNRF. Be sure to always let others know where you are and to dress in layers to keep warm. It’s also critical to know and abide by local fishing

regulations. You can only fish if you have a licence available at participating ServiceOntario Centres or at a licence issuer. There are more than 1,200 license issuers across Ontario or you can purchase your licence online through the MNRF website. You must be between 1864 years old to hold a valid fishing licence. The licence includes two parts: an Outdoors Card (a plastic ID card, valid for three calendar years) accompanied by either a fishing version (to fish only) or a hunting version (to fish and hunt). You need to carry both your Outdoors Card and fishing licence tag whenever you go fishing. You can buy your fishing licence tag at the same time or after you buy your Outdoors Card but you need to buy an Outdoors Card before you can buy a licence tag. Newcomers who want to try the sport can buy a oneday sport fishing licence tag without an Outdoors Card. Many attend local ice fishing derbies or take part

during the Ontario Family Fishing Weekend in February. No licences are required that weekend. “We have regulations in place to prevent the spread of invasive species, to protect critical parts of fish populations, to manage the sustainable harvest and enhance our fishery management. Catching, cooking and eating the fish you catch is a very important part of the fishing experience so these regulations help ensure folks can fish in an enjoyable and responsible way,” says Matthew Garvin, MNRF Fisheries Program Biologist. Garvin advises to always follow catch and possession limits and know what fish are in season before you drop a line. “Take the time to learn the rules and regulations for your favourite locations. And always remember ice safety. Ice does not freeze evenly. Nearshore ice is often much thicker and safer than ice farther out, especially where there is a current such as a river. Check thickness regularly with a

City releases deer collision stats for West Carleton roads BY DAVID JOHNSTON

The City of Ottawa has released statistics for deer and moose collisions occurring in Ward 5 for 2014-2015. Rob Wilkinson, Coordinator of the Safer Roads Ottawa Submitted Photo Program, revealed there where Road signs have been erected by the City of Ottawa on Dunrobin Road to warn drivers of 273 collisions where deer/moose the danger of excessive speed in high deer collision areas. were struck. In another 21 collisions, drivers attempted to avoid deer/moose encounters, CENTREPOINTE THEATRES PRESENTS #CTVARIETY bringing the total number of deer/moose collisions in Ward 5 for 2014-2015 to 294. March Road from Dunrobin to Burnt Lands had the highest number of deer/moose collisions with 27, Upper Dwyer Hill from Hwy 7 to RR 29 had 22, Dunrobin Road







from March Rd to Galetta Side Road saw 21, while Galetta Side Rd from Ivy Acres to Dunrobin Road had 14 collisions. There were another 12 accidents on March Rd. from Dunrobin to Old Carp/Maxwell Bridge. On non-municipal roadways, Hwy 417 from Hwy 7 to RR 29 witnessed 40 collisions while Hwy 7 from Hwy 417 to Golden Line sustained 13 in the time period. Wilkinson says it’s up to drivers to “drive smart” to avoid collisions with wildlife. “Do not speed in wildlife areas and, when traffic levels are low, try to drive at the lower end of the speed limit or just below the limit, if it is safe to do so.

This will provide you with an extra few seconds to spot animals and respond if an animal suddenly appears.” He added that drivers should not rely on roadside fencing for protection as some animals can jump over or crawl under fences. “Be alert for wildlife at all times. The most dangerous situations for collisions with animals are driving one hour before and after dusk and dawn on two-lane highways with speeds of 80 km/h or more.” The City of Ottawa recently erected warning signs on some West Carleton Roads that say “speeding can cost you deerly”, depicting a deer caught in the headlights of a moving vehicle.

Welcoming calving season with a little Holly


alving season 2017 started a little early this year. Normally our cows give birth in late January to March. But the day after Boxing Day, one cow was hanging out in the barn by herself. When the Farmer went to check on her a while later, there was a tiny calf standing beside her. The calf was up and moving around but didn’t appear to be eating. The lack of selenium in our soil has led to a weak suckling instinct in both our sheep and our cattle. The Farmer gave the little heifer a quick shot of the miracle supplement and in just a few minutes she was up and under her mother, nursing away. We like to keep the new family in the barn for the first week or so, to ensure the baby knows who her mother is. Hopefully by the time they are released to the barnyard, they will have formed a strong bond and will be less likely to lose each other in the herd.

DIANA FISHER The Accidental Farmwife Every morning we brought two pails of water from the pump to the inner reaches of the barn, where the new mother and baby were recuperating. We filled the feeders with hay and tossed some old straw on the pen floor to sop up some of the wetness. It gets pretty messy in there in a very short time. After a few days the new mother had had enough of the spa experience and was more than ready to get out of the barn for some fresh air and sunshine. Her little calf was running circles around her in the pen, ready to head out for a romp. We waited for a mild, sunny day to let the pair outside. The temperature was hovering right around


the zero mark when I opened the door to the pen. Mama didn’t need much coaxing, and baby followed along with a little skip. I put some of the leftover hay outside in a spot that was sheltered from the wind. Cow and calf lay down for an afternoon nap. Within about half an hour, the sky had darkened and a blizzard blew in with a snow squall and biting winds. I worried about the little calf and hoped her mom would lead her into the part of the barn where the cows take shelter from the weather. I stood at the window squinting my eyes, trying to see the little black dot in the snow against the barn. I worried she would be too cold, or get

lambing pens and even the horse stable will be full. One down, eleven to go. Calving season 2017 has begun, with a little heifer calf I named Holly. It would be ideal if the rest of them were born before we head to Jamaica at the end of February. Our house sitters aren’t much for delivering calves. www.theaccidentalfarmwife. theaccidentalfarmwife.

no one accidentally steps on her while feeding. We will have to keep a close eye on the rest of the cows to see if any others are planning a surprise birth.

separated from her mom in the blinding snow. Just then the Farmer came in, sliding the patio door shut on the storm behind him. “I put them back in the pen,” he announced. He said he picked up the little calf and carried her back to the room she had just vacated. The weather was just too nasty for such a new little creature. Mom followed, if a little reluctantly. She was enjoying being outside, but wasn’t about to let her baby be taken away. The next day we tried again to let the animals outside. This time the pair sauntered as far away from the barn as they could go before hitting deep snow. They lay down together in the sunshine at the far corner of the field, as if to say, “we aren’t going back in that barn, thanks. We’re ok right here.” The little heifer spends her afternoons lying on the bed of spilled hay around the feeder. The bull stands protectively over her so that

Much ado about linen hankies


iss Crosby, as always, was at school by the time the first one of us arrived in the morning. My brother Emerson once suggested he wouldn’t be a bit surprised if she slept there all night. The Christmas holidays were over, and we were right back into the usual routine at the Northcote School. And every morning I looked for the special gift I had given Miss Crosby the night of our Christmas concert. And then, just after we had been back a few days, there it was. The white hanky I had given her, tucked into the cuff of her dress, with one corner sticking out just far enough that I could see the red rose that had been embroidered on it. Miss Crosby, ever cautious not to single one pupil out, gave no sign that she was wearing my gift. But I knew it was the one I had given her, and that was all that mattered. I had a hard time paying attention to my lessons that day, and wanted so badly to tell ev-


Memories eryone that the hanky, which had cost 19 cents at Walker’s Store in Renfrew, was now tucked neatly into the cuff of my teacher’s dress sleeve. And as often happened to me, my mind wandered that day. With my work done and my scribbler closed, I thought a lot about hankies. Girls and women called them hankies, whereas boys and men called them handkerchiefs. Father’s weren’t fancy or white like Uncle Lou’s. Father’s were either navy or red with dots and squares. He wore his tucked into his back pocket, and it served many purposes besides being used to blow his nose. It cleaned pieces of machinery,

wiped the toes of his Sunday shoes, and polished his pipe. My sister Audrey and I had what we called school hankies, which were plain white squares, and then we had one special one which we took to church on Sundays. A plain white hankie held every cent I owned. This is where young girls tied the few pennies they had into a corner of the hankie, and of course, it was tucked away for safe keeping, out of sight in case a brother decided to help himself to a penny or two. That day in school, when I let my mind wander, I thought too of Mother and her hankies. She had several fancy hankies, one of which she

always carried in her purse. And before going into town, or to visit, she took her bottle of “Evening In Paris” cologne, and gave the hankie a good dash so that every time she opened her purse, she smelled like the perfume counter at Ritza’s Drug Store in Renfrew. It was Aunt Lizzie from Regina whose hankies gave me the most interest. Of course, hers were of the finest linen, and not one was just a plain hankie. They were edged in lace, were bigger than the one’s Mother had, and were as white as the driven snow, and many had fine coloured embroidery on the corners. But it was what she did with them that interested me more. Aunt Lizzie was what Mother called “well endowed” which took me ages to figure out. She too kept her hankies well sprinkled with toilet water. Which meant you always knew where she was. Even if she walked by the back of your chair, you caught the scent of the toilet water. Lacking a place to put her hankie if she wasn’t going anywhere in particular, she would plunge it down the front of her dress into goodness knows where. And when

she needed it, she wasn’t the least bit embarrassed to reach in, grab it out, use it, and cram it back into the cavity from where it came. There was a lot to think about when it came to hankies. And so that day after Christmas, when Miss Crosby had my present tucked into the sleeve of her dress, I hoped that she would do something to show that she liked what I had given her at the Christmas concert. And then, just before school was let out at the end of the day, she pulled the han-

Valid concerns raised about policing


olicing is changing in Ottawa. In fact, organizational changes have already been rolling out behind the scenes and publicly for some time as part of something called the Service Initiative program that aims to improve how police serve and protect us. Senior brass at the Ottawa Police Service are now preparing to introduce you, the public, to its new “frontline deployment model” on Jan. 23, which they say “is aimed at improving community safety by making it easier to move resources across the city to where they are needed. The new model will also have more streamlined processes for partners and the public to access services.” Three meetings are taking place in Kanata, Nepean and Orléans later this month to unveil the final new component of the initiative. You’ll learn that community police officers will no longer be assigned to a specific area of Ottawa. Rather, their assignments will be based on areas in need, mirroring that used by school resource officers, who are assigned to specific schools ranked according to need. A remodelling of community policing sparked concerns last spring. Residents, business owners, organizations, the police union and city councillors expressed concern about the potential consequences for public engagement and

crime reduction. Many appealed to the Ottawa Police Services Board not to change how beat cops, community police and district traffic officers will be deployed. Those concerns are justified. The new frontline model seeks to fill gaps in staffing due to high crime rates. It’s not really concerned with the proactive policing that community officers do, which is why there is concern. Having a point of contact – a community police officer assigned to a specific geographic area – has helped reduce the number of calls for service in problem-plagued neighbourhoods, critics say. Police brass counter, saying the overall changes are needed to reduce demands on officers and improve the efficiency and coordination of front-line police resources. At this point, with just days to go before three “information meetings” are held, the changes are a done deal, though each meeting will feature a 45-minute discussion and 45 minutes allotted for a question and answer period. Time will tell just how well and how long this new frontline system will roll out starting Jan. 23. When it comes to changing frontline deployment, coming on the heels of 2016 – which saw the highest homicide rate in many years at 24 dead – people are right to be wary of change when it comes to safety and security in the city.

Challenge for the new year: smart car meets dumb street


hen you look at the early headlines of 2017 you can be forgiven for thinking that this year might not be much of an improvement over the last one. In Florida, a family was attacked by a dog when they tried to make it wear a sweater. In Florida. In Thailand, a French tourist decided to have her picture taken beside a crocodile. She then fell on top of the crocodile, which proceeded to bite her. No one was fatally injured in either of these instances. But our pride in being members of the human race took a bit of a hit. After all these decades of rising educational levels, we sometimes don’t seem to have a lot to show for it. If you doubt this, please note that one of the big selling Christmas toys last year was a toy

It goes without saying that there have been irrational developments in world elections lately, but it shouldn’t be any surprise, given that we are the electorate. Despairing of our failure to develop much in the way of lasting intelligence, human beings have focussed their hopes in recent years on computers, with decidedly mixed results. Computers seem intelligent enough when telling us who the original members of the Monkees were, but not terribly smart when we try to order tickets Vice President & Regional Publisher Peter Bishop 613-283-3182

to anything. In desperation we turn to our cars, which have lately been showing signs of dependability and have even learned, some of them, to operate without keys and to tell you what the temperature is outside. Research proceeds apace and the so-called smart car is, we are told, just around the corner. Already many of these creatures, also known as self-driving cars, are on the streets and most of them do not have accidents. At last, we dare to hope, a machine that will save us from our own stupidity and steer us away from crocodiles. It would take a long time to enumerate the many gifts that smart cars are claimed to bring us, but they include less crowded streets, fewer accidents, lowered pollution levels and an end to circling the block looking for a

parking spot. It might be asking too much to hope smart cars will be intelligent enough to avoid drive-thrus, but the progress made so far is encouraging. The smart car, however, has yet to meet its ultimate challenge — the complete street. Here in Ottawa we have been doing everything we can think of to make our streets friendlier to things other than cars. Pedestrians and bicyclists would fall into this category. There are bicycle lanes and all sorts of humps and bumps and cutouts and symbols painted onto the pavement. Portions of some streets are painted a nice shade of green. These are called complete streets. We will be seeing lots of them and will eventually understand how to behave on them. The big question is what happens when a driverless car lands on one. Will it be smart enough to

Hydro service lacking Dear Editor -

Last Wednesday, January 4th, we experienced another ice storm. Granted, it was not as bad as the ice storm of 1998 but it was nevertheless concerning especially for those of us who are Hydro One customers. Premier Wynne makes much of the work she and her government have done on repairing the hydro lines, saying that much of the high cost of our electricity comes from repairing the infrastructure. But auditor general Bonnie Lysik reported in her 2015 annual report that “Hydro One’s distribution system has consistently been one of the least reliable among large electricity distributors” and that reliability had deteriorated. With a 9.5 year review cycle for the distribution system, it is small wonder that reliability is so bad. (For most peer utilities, the review cycle is 3.8 years.) On Stonecrest Road, our hydro was out for ten hours and it would have been out for much longer if it had not been for my neighbour directing the Hydro One linesmen to the fact that a tree was down on the line causing the local power outage in our area. This is doubly frustrating in that this past summer, Hydro One was alerted, through their Ombudsman, Fiona Crean, to the fact that there were a number of old, dead, and dying trees along this same stretch of road.

Yes, their forestry department did respond but they apparently missed at least one and I suspect more trees that pose a risk to hydro reliability in our area. Much thanks to the Hydro crews that were out that day fixing the lines and to my neighbour for alerting the crew to the situation on our road. You shortened by 16 hours (according to Hydro One’s best guess at restoration time) the interval we would have had to spend without hydro. The number to call to report the location of a downed power line is 1-800-434-1235 and listen for the prompt (number 3) to connect to an operator who will take the information and relay it to the dispatch team.

YEAR IN REVIEW It’s that time of year when we say good by to 2016 and welcome 2017. The following is a brief look at the second half of 2016. JULY

Dunrobin’s Cameron Smedley will paddle in Rio at Olympics The summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are set to take place next month and no matter what happens for West Carleton’s Cameron Smedley, he can call himself an Olympian. Smedley secured his spot on the Canadian team in June during the World Cup event in La Seu d’Urgell, Spain, as he amassed enough points to guarantee his selection. The Canadian Olympic Committee and Canoe Kayak Canada, officially announced on June 27 that Smedley would be on the Olympic canoe-kayak team. Kanata residents announce intentions to run for provincial PC nomination Two Kanata residents, a retired police staff sergeant and a retired family physician, announced they are vying for the provincial Progressive Conser-

vative nomination in KanataCarleton. Rick Keindel retired from the Ottawa Police Service in March after more than 31 years on the force and has lived in the riding for 24 years. Kanata Lakes resident Dr. Merrilee Fullerton is a health advocate and retired physician with 26 years of experience in family medicine, 17 of those at the Med-Team Clinic in Kanata. She was born and raised in the riding. Fire alert Two teenagers are being praised for their quick work in alerting fi refi ghters to a vehicle fi re in Dunrobin July 11. Bill Bell, the acting sector chief of the Rural Division District 6 in the Ottawa Fire Services, reports that Taylor Bond of Dunrobin and Alexandra Daze from Nepean helped prevent a car fi re from spreading to and consuming a commercial building on Dunrobin Road. If they hadn’t reported the fi re on Dunrobin Road when it was in its early stages, it would likely have spread to a nearby building, he said. Jack’s back

Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren says he will run for his party’s nomination in the new riding of Kanata-Carleton. The Progressive Conservative incumbent – in what is currently the riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills – began knocking on doors about two weeks ago, he said. The riding will be slightly reshaped before the next provincial election – scheduled for 2018 – and take on the name Kanata-Carleton. WC Legion celebrates opening of community garden The West Carleton Legion celebrated with a grand opening of the Branch 616 Community Gardens recently. The ribbon-cutting took place on June 30.

Poontoon boat runs into Quyon ferry The Quyon Ferry was delayed from its schedule on Saturday night (Aug. 6) as there was a collision, which involved a pontoon boat. The call came in around 9:05 p.m. According to MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais police spokesman Martin Fournel, the ferry was leaving on the Quyon side and heading over to the Ontario dock at Fitzroy when the crash happened. The ferry was only 100 feet out when the pontoon boat did not yield in the gloom and the two collided. The ferry went back to port to assess the damage. The word that McColgan received was the pontoon became jammed on the ferry’s drawbridge. There was nobody injured, but a paramedic attended as a precaution, said Fournel. See YEAR page 15

West Carleton bus company goes through rebranding Voyageur Transportation has become Voyago. The company announced the rebranding at its one-year anniversary of being headquartered in the West Carleton area. To celebrate, a barbecue was held at the Carp fairgrounds on Aug. 26 with company officials, dignitaries and a crowd of drivers. “The name is branding,” said Voyago’s operations manager Yvonne Swant. “It’s catchy and I like it.” The company has been around for more than 35 years and had beginnings simply doing runs to the airport.

The first workshop on blanching and freezing vegetables was led by local farmer Katie Ward Chiasson of Our Farm Aug. 20. The event attracted about 15 people to the Galetta Community Centre. The second free workshop, which featured canning, took place Saturday, Sept. 10, also at the Galetta Community Centre. It was led by Ottawa’s own ‘farmgal’ Valerie Sharp. Sharp walked participants through the principles of safe canning for both water bath and pressuring techniques. She had plenty of tips and tricks to make canning a safe and fun activity for all.

Member of Parliament Kanata-Carleton Information Session – Canada Summer Jobs Program

An information session will be held on Tuesday January 17th, 2017 from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm at the Richcraft Recreation Complex, 4101 Innovation Drive, Kanata on the Canada Summer Jobs Program. Department officials will be on hand to answer questions. Those who cannot attend the Information Session can access a pre-recorded YouTube Information Video at


It’s been a very busy year on Parliament Hill, and with one year into our tenure, I am very pleased with many of the advancements our government has produced, and am hopeful that with these changes, Canadians will be able to benefit from these successes for years to come. Under the new Canada Child Benefit, about 300,000 fewer children will be living in poverty in 2016-17 compared with 2014-15, and families benefitting are seeing an average increase in child benefits of almost $2,300 in the 2016-17 benefit year. The government has cut taxes for the middle class which resulted in nearly nine million Canadians having more money on their paycheques starting last January. We reached an historic agreement to make meaningful changes to the CPP; it will allow Canadians to retire with more money in their pockets. The deal will boost how much Canadians will get from their pension – from one quarter of their earnings now, to fully one third. We have increased Canada Student Grant amounts by 50%: from $2,000 to $3,000 per year for students from low-income families; from $800 to $1,200 per year for students from middle-income families; and from $1,200 to $1,800 per year for part-time students. Last summer, more than twice as many young Canadians were at work compared to last year through the Canada Summer Jobs program. In Kanata-Carleton we invested almost $690,000 and helped create 290 jobs. As the New Year begins I am excited for us to once again come together, improve upon the positive steps we have made in the past year, and continue the hard work to create a better Canada.

Bayka Art Gallery is a natural inspiration BY DAVID JOHNSTON

A Constance Bay couple has created a fairy tale experience at their art gallery. Aptly named ‘Bayka’, which means ‘fairy tale’ in their native Polish, Bogdan Rodziewicz and Emilia Prokopowicz have turned their home at 367 Albirch Rd. into a magical, mystical place. Initially intended to display Bogdan’s beautiful art in various mediums, the gallery expanded to encompass the entire property with winding paths and inspirational themes like Red Riding Hood and Hansel and

Gretel. Bogdan started to sketch as part of his training as an architect when he was a young man in Poland. His father was also an artist and Bogdan’s natural talent soon flourished in miniature streetscapes carved on wood and then printed. His love for architecture and landscapes stayed with him through his career and when the pair moved to Ottawa in 1986, they dreamed of one day having their own studio. They bought their home in Constance Bay about 12 years ago and soon started to renovate

Bayka Art Gallery at 367 Albirch Rd. in Constance Bay is the vision of Emilia Prokopowicz and Bogdan Rodziewicz. Open Saturdays 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in winter, the gallery showcases Bogdan’s art while offering an inspirational space to other artists and everyone who appreciates art.

it to house Bogdan’s artistic endeavours and support Emilia’s interest in pottery and glazing. The garage was closed in to create a bright, window-filled room to showcase finished work and to provide space for more creativity. The basement became the space for kilns and a potter’s wheel. Bayka Gallery officially opened in July 2016 though the transition of the home is continuing.

The couple chose to settle in Constance Bay because the beaches and view of the Gatineau Hills was reminiscent of their homeland. Now they are transforming their home into being a place where people can gather to appreciate art, share stories and enjoy treats and refreshments created by Emilia. See GALLERY page 20

Canada Summer Jobs Program

Each year, the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program helps employers create valuable summer job opportunities for full-time students aged 15 to 30 years old. This year, applications are being accepted online from December 7, 2016 until January 20, 2017, with students starting their jobs as early as April 2017. I ask all local businesses who can take in students, to apply, and provide these students the opportunity to expose them to new skills, challenge their potential, experience personal growth, and help them set themselves up for future. For more information on CSJ, including the eligibility criteria and application guide, visit, or call us at 613-992-1119.

“It is still a work in progress,” admits Emilia. “We have more plans to involve other artists and create a place where people can feel inspired.” Bogdan has added local landscapes to his wide range of expression and is currently working on a painting of the bay featuring the Blackjack sail boat, often seen travelling the river during summer. He also created a likeness of their neighbor John Smith riding his horse and sulky. “I will do more with nature,” he said. “I like the feeling of nature in my paintings.” Bogdan creates art in many

mediums, including oil on canvas with brush or spatula as well as crayon and watercolour. He plans to expand his artistic work next year when he retires from his profession as an architect. He is looking forward to having more time to finish projects around the house as well, to bring the Bayka Art Gallery to its full potential. Some people may recognize Bogdan as the man who bicycled daily to his job in Ottawa every summer. He has stopped riding the 100 km round trip journey in favour of spending more time developing the gallery. Emilia has taken up pottery and is sketching her first designs to be painted on plates, with a

Red Riding Hood theme. “We hope to be able to invite other artists to come in and paint and have some fun,” she said. They both are looking forward to spring when they can open up their pathways that wind for a half-kilometre through their yard. “There is so much nature here. It is a wonderful place for ideas and inspiration,” says Bogdan. The new gallery addition to the house features great south and west exposure with large windows to flood the room with light. The walls are lined with Bogdan’s work over many years, which even includes a portrait of Emilia and a self-portrait,

both done in Europe when they were younger. “The gallery has spectacular views and there is so much nature all around us,” says Emilia proudly. “We have learned so much about animals since moving here.” Now that their vision has become a reality, both Emilia and Bogdan look forward to sharing their magical gallery and property with the community. The gallery is open Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the winter, or by appointment. Call 613-832-7777 or email emilka_ “We welcome everyone to come to see the art and enjoy our gallery.”

Jack MacLaren Member of Provincial Parliament Carleton-Mississippi Mills

Cap-and-trade boondoggle!

Area to get two resource centres It will soon be easier for residents of West Carleton to access support services. The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre is launching two new community service centres within the borders of West Carleton in the coming days: the Fitzroy Harbour hub will open Nov. 15 and the Constance Bay hub will open Nov. 17. “This is our first step into full service in West Carleton,” said Julie McKercher, community health promoter with the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre.



The tax is basically a scheme to make everyone pay for carbon dioxide emissions.


These higher costs are going to hurt the poor most, and enrich the government by about $2 billion a year. The cap-and-trade tax is not going to be offset by reductions in any of our other taxes. So as we all get poorer, the government will get richer. The next election just can’t come soon enough!

The Constance Bay Pharmacy, as it is aptly named, opens for business Dec. 1. “This is an under serviced area,” said Awada, the licensed pharmacist who is opening the independently owned shop. “There was a need for more service, and I wanted to fill that gap.” Legion’s community outreach program a success Last Friday’s TGIF Dinner at the Royal Canadian Legion in Constance Bay (377 Allbirch Rd) had a special theme: It was a Turkey Dinner in celebration of the successful completion of Phases 1 and 2 of the Legion’s Community Outreach program. These first two phases include both the TGIF dinners and also the Legion’s Community Garden, replete with 36 plots, deer fencing, two storage sheds and landscaping. The dinner was also an opportunity for the Legion and its main partner in this endeavour,


The Government’s cap-and-trade tax went into effect on the 1st of January.

The cost of everything else is going up too. Almost all products in Canada are shipped to a store or to your doorstep by trucks. So if the cost of gas goes up, the cost of shipping does too. Business have to pass those costs on to their customers. This is why the Auditor-General of Ontario estimated that over the next two years households will pay almost $300 more indirect costs everything.


Pharmacy offering service with a personal touch opens Dec. 1 Pharmaceuticals with personal touch – that’s what Tamara Awada is hoping to offer in Constance Bay. Residents of Constance Bay MPP MacLaren to host hydro will soon have their very own town hall meetings pharmacy right in the heart of Carleton-Mississippi Mills their community.

I hope everyone had a calm and restful Christmas and happy new year, because it looks like 2017 is off to a rough start.

Fuel prices have already gone up. Gas at most pumps was up to $1.16 a litre. The cost of heating your home is going up by about $7 a month, and this is on top of the already ridiculously high cost of hydro.

MPP Jack MacLaren will host four town hall meetings throughout his riding to address hydro issues. MacLaren, whose riding includes those on Hydro Ottawa and Hydro One, said increased electricity rates are causing financial hardships for his constituents. “We get more calls about hydro bills in this office than any other subject,” he said.

West Carleton Review news editor retiring West Carleton Review readers will have noticed recently some new faces in their community looking after their newspaper. Since the fall, West Carleton Review reporter Kelly McCarthy along with news editor Joe Morin have been responsible for getting all their news each week and continuing the fine community tradition that is the West Carleton Review. While Kelly McCarthy continues to report stories from the area, Joe Morin is retiring. His last day is Friday, Jan. 13. The veteran newsman will be replaced by John Curry

who will become the new West Carleton Review news editor. Curry has been in the news business for more than 40 years, best known for looking after the folks in Stittsville. He is the perfect choice for steering the West Carleton Review forward. It is a bittersweet moment for Morin as he had the opportunity to retire just weeks after taking on the West Carleton Review news editor position. “My grandparents, Mabel and Andrew McDonald, settled down in Fitzroy Harbour years ago. As children we spent a

great deal of time there. Getting the chance to go back to the area, if even for a few weeks was a thrill,” he said. “I am decidedly rural in my perspective and I was looking forward to bringing the West Carleton news to the rest of urban Ottawa.” Morin has grown quite fond of West Carleton. “In the short time I have been covering the area I have received amazing support from West Carleton residents who are quick to lend a hand in getting their stories and news out of their communities and into the paper. For that I am forever

While you may have already switched to compact flourescent light bulbs, these tips will add to the savings by regulating your home’s temperature.

Water… These tips will not only help you save money on your bill, but you’ll be saving water, too. Bathing and showering comprises 35% of household water use.

• Good insulation not only helps regulate the temperature of your home, it can also reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%. • Schedule temperature settings on a programmable thermostat for when you’re likely to need heat or air conditioning the most, such as when you wake up and when you arrive home from work. • Drafty windows are not only a nuisance, they can also cause 30-40% of heating and cooling losses. Apply weather stripping to your windows to patch up leaks.

• Low flow faucets and showerheads can help you dramatically reduce your water consumption. • Every six months, inspect your faucets and pipes for wear and tear. Don’t forget outdoor faucets! • A tankless water heater may help you save 20% on your water bill. An added bonus: You’ll never run out of hot water again! Energy… Canadians use an average of 105 gigajoules of energy per household.

Home Improvements that Boost the Value of Your Home

Homeowners remodel their homes for a number of reasons, but one of the most common is to increase resale value prior to listing. Renovations will improve the style, function, look and feel of your home, and may make it more appealing to potential buyers. The kitchen is the heart of the home. A kitchen remodel will not only improve your home’s functionality, it may also become a key selling point if you decide to sell. The average kitchen remodel costs $24,912, with people undertaking a high-end remodel spending an average of $49,495. However, if you’re thinking of listing your home soon and your kitchen is in good shape, you may want to rethink a full remodel. A minor upgrade and a coat of paint may be all you need to freshen up the space. 40% of

home improvement dollars have gone into the kitchen.

The bathroom is the place where you get ready to take on the world every day. Show it some love with a makeover. Upgrade your fixtures to reflect your style, or create the spa-like getaway of your dreams. Canadians spent an average of $10,127 on their renovation, with people spending an average of $21,200 for a high-end remodel. Upgrading your home with energy-efficient features will not only save each month on your utility bill, it may also make the home more attractive to younger or more energy-conscious buyers. 40% of renovation projects went over budget, while 33% stayed on budget.

The balance of nature never was BY MICHAEL RUNTZ

When I was young I was taught nature exists in a state of equilibrium - that predators keep prey in check, and that plants and animals live in balance. As time passed I came to learn that nothing could be farther from the truth. This winter is providing great examples of just how imbalanced nature really is. Over the past three weeks, the Christmas Bird Counts in

Algonquin Park and, finally, Dunrobin. On these events I got a firsthand picture of the distribution of birds and other animals in eastern Ontario. Two themes became clear: red squirrels and finches (with one exception) were scarce while American robins and other fruit-eating birds were present in surprising Michael Runtz numbers. In some winters, finches Nature’s Way such as white-winged crossbills which I participated took me are so abundant that it's hard from Kingston to Arnprior, to hear other birds after the

sun rises. This winter, apart from the occasional twitter of American goldfinches, dawn arrives in virtually silence. In some years the chattering of red squirrels greets you in every coniferous woods; this year even their tracks in snow are near absent. The reason for this is clear - coniferous trees have virtually no cones. Conifer seeds are the main food not only of crossbills and red-breasted nuthatches (also scarce this winter) but also of red squirrels. Last fall I watched a red squirrel harvesting jack pine cones, which are so hard they require the heat of fire to release their seeds. By now that squirrel has likely lost a lot of weight or needs dental work; that is, of course, if it is still alive. On the other end of the scale, apple and other fruitbearing trees and vines such as wild grape are laden with fruit. This bounty was behind a record number of American robins tallied on the Ottawa and Pakenham-Arnprior counts. The crop was also likely responsible for Eastern bluebirds lingering; the one near Pakenham was the first recorded on that area's count while the two observed near Dunrobin constituted that count's second

Record-high numbers of American Robins remained here this winter because of the large crop of fruit on Common Buckthorn, Apple, and other trees. record. The abundance of fruit was undoubtedly why a hermit thrush was encountered in Galetta, and Northern flickers were seen on several counts. Unfortunately, the one in Pakenham, which would have been a new species for the Pakenham-Arnprior Count, failed to show on Boxing Day but was seen during "Count Week," the three days on either side of the count. How does this relate to the balance of nature? Well, if fruit and cones were produced in the same volume every year, seed-eaters would be present in the same numbers every year, and they would destroy all of the seeds, leaving none for regeneration. But low production in suc-

cessive years causes the populations of seed-eating animals like red squirrels and deer mice to crash. Then, when a massive crop is produced, the few animals present can't possibly devour all of the seeds, ensuring regeneration. The low years not only affect seed-eaters but also the animals that eat them. Thus, like fruit and cone numbers, animal populations go through rollercoaster rides, creating ebbs and tides that ripple all through the ecosystem. This imbalance in nature makes each year different. It also makes each Christmas bird count fresh and exciting! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@

I made my own hand-written Will a few years ago. I believe it’s valid and truly reflects my wishes, however my financial advisor told me I should get a proper will drafted by a lawyer. Why should I do that? Wills are legal documents that will dictate the distribution of assets after one’s passing and there are many reasons why wills should be prepared by a lawyer specializing in this area of law.

Reflecting all your legal obligation

Formal validity

Clarity of language

For wills to be valid and legally binding they have to be executed (signed) according to legal requirements. A lawyer preparing your will would ensure that the document is executed properly and therefore legally valid and binding.

A properly drafted will should use language that is clear and precise in order to prevent any issues with interpreting your instructions contained in the document. Your lawyer will make sure that proper language is being used to avoid any ambiguities and ensure that it clearly reflects your intentions.

A lawyer can make sure your will deals with all important matters, such as the appointment of executor(s) and alternate executor(s), distribution of your assets, appointment of custodians and guardians for your children and setting up trusts for minor beneficiaries. Your lawyer will also ensure your will gives executors enough powers to properly and efficiently administer your estate and follow your testamentary wishes.

Under the law you are obliged to provide for your spouse and your dependants. Your lawyer can advise you of your obligations to such persons.

Preventing future challenges to your will Having a lawyer draft your will significantly reduces any risk of future legal challenge to its validity based on your legal capacity or any undue influence. When your legal capacity might be an issue, your lawyer will gather and keep all the required evidence to prove you had the necessary legal capacity to make a will. He or she will also ensure there is no undue influence from any individuals, including family members that would affect any of the provisions of your will.
