Zoning certainty mayor’s big promise at Liveable launch Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city is asking for residents’ help tackling 12 planning issues as it looks to build a “liveable” city in the future. The city launched its massive master planning review on Jan. 29 with two meetings at city hall that outlined challenges – and ideas – to create a Liveable Ottawa. “Certainty” was the name of the game when it came to zoning, with both the mayor and planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume repeatedly insisting that the review will result in a zoning bylaw that matches and implements the policies outlined in the Official Plan. “Providing certainty for the community and the development industry is a theme you’ve heard me talking about a lot in the past year,” Hume said. “Our refreshed Official Plan will be more prescriptive than ever before in terms of where the vision

EMC news – Cheshire Cat regulars have organized a fundraiser for staff that found themselves out of work following the recent fire. The British-style pub has hundreds of devote customers, many willing to shell out to help with the transition after the historic building burned to the ground on Jan. 28. They have organized – what else? – a party, complete with live music and dancing, a silent auction, door prizes and more. It will be a week from this Saturday. Tickets are $20 to the Carp Agricultural Hall event, set for Saturday, Feb. 16, beginning at 7 p.m. All proceeds will go to the 36-member staff. Within 20 hours of announcing the fundraiser, tickets were almost sold out. It shows the love folks have for the Cat. Sean Flanigan, speaking from London, England, sits on the organizing committee.

for height and density is in this city. … (Planning manager John) Moser and his staff are committed to bringing forward the necessary zoning bylaws in 2014 that will implement these height permissions such that there is absolute certainty for all and fewer disparities between the Official Plan and the zoning bylaw.” It’s something community associations have been clamoring for. Essentially, it would mean that the rules for what can be built on parcels of land across the city and what sorts of uses those properties can feature would match the goals and larger vision for the city that’s set out in its Official Plan. Right now, there is so much discrepancy between the ideals in the Official Plan and the actual rules governing the zoning that the leeway often leads to spot rezoning of properties that community members often feel aren’t in line with the goals the city has set out for itself. “We are getting better at smart growth and we are doing it together (with developers), but there is still

more to do,” Watson said. He said public interest and participation in the process is essential. “We want to ensure Ottawa remains a vibrant, dynamic and affordable city for years to come,” Watson said, adding that the review will help “unlock the potential of the city.” Affordability will be a fundamental part of that, the mayor said. The city only has limited means to pay for new facilities that population growth demands. Interested citizens can find detailed information online at ottawa.ca/liveableottawa. There, people can fill out an online survey and sign up for alerts about future public meetings. Updating the entire suite of master plans in one go is a rare opportunity that will help the city ensure the plans all work together towards common goals, the mayor said.

West Carleton’s own Andy Chapman is in the centre of the set with the Extreme Babysitting crew as they reveal the prank to a babysitter. Babysitting takes a turn for the hilarious when YTV’s crack team of prank professionals pull wacky pranks on unsuspecting babysitters. Hidden cameras catch every minute of the action as our teenage targets try to cope with bizarre behaviour, wacky visitors and insane situations.

West alumnus takes babysitting to extremes Derek Dunn

EMC entertainment – It’s not the kind of babysitting job you would want your daughter taking on. Imagine she arrives at the house, meets the mom, is left with the tween, and lets the grandparents drop in unexpected. Nothing to be suspicious about in that. Two kindly, elderly folks. The grandfather is in a new wheelchair, which is no problem. The sandwich he asks your daughter to make is a little unusual, especially when it was topped with popcorn. But she does it. She even tastes it when asked. “I lost my taste buds in the war,” grandpa says, a little cranky-like. No biggy. But it starts getting a little extreme when his wheelchair begins to act up. He can’t get the joystick on his wheelchair to work. So he asks your little girl to work the remote. That’s when he and chair slingshot across the kitchen – right through the wall. Not a little bump into the wall; all the way through. Of course she is mortified. And every hidden camera in the room captures the look of utter disbelief. They don’t keep her hanging long. Grandma lets her in on gag. She’s been pranked by the good people on Extreme Babysitting. And the mastermind behind the YTV show? West Carleton’s own Andy Chapman. “So now I’m pranking babysitters,” a laughing Chapman said over the phone from the set in Toronto. “It’s all in good fun. We wouldn’t let anyone get hurt.”

Along with the hidden cameras and professional actors armed with Chapman’s scripts, the West Carleton Secondary School graduate is staked out in a nearby room watching the three-pranks per episode unfold. “I wouldn’t be much good out there,” he said. “I’d crack up every time.” He does a good job as host, and as the comic relief between cartoons on the channel’s Saturday morning bloc CRUNCH. It’s a gig he’s held for a few years now, picking it up soon after landing the co-host role in another YTV show: SciQ, a science show for kids. The twenty-something isn’t sure why he connects with kids, other than to say he enjoys watching cartoons himself and prides himself as a standup comedian who – refreshingly – likes to play it clean and cynical-free. “I’m a big kid and don’t mind falling down,” said the Bill Cosby, Abbott and Costello, and Charlie Chaplin fan. West teachers used to see him as a comedian, too; though they may have frowned on it a bit at the time. When he returned a couple of years ago to speak to the students, he was happy to see some of the same teachers proud of for making a go of it in a tough business. He keeps getting work, though. Along with two steady gigs on TV, Chapman’s standup is gaining in popularity with shows booked from here to Toronto. His family-friendly comedy enables him to appear in almost any venue. That alone, the fact that he is getting gig after gig, is the kind of self-perpetuating path all entrepreneurs can appreciate. “Work begets work,” Chapman said.

Mayor’s Report

Cat fire likely cause by electrical Continue from front

He said the staff deserves help from customers to see them through a difficult transition. “We set it up because we know many of the people who work there. They will be out of pocket for too long,� Flanigan said. “These hard-working souls have served us cold drinks on hot days, hot food on cold days and always with a smile on their faces. We don’t often get to see the kitchen staff who not only cooks but creates amazing dishes for us to choose from. These folks are out of work as of now and we hope to raise enough money to take the sting out of this turn of events.� Chris Mellor, whose stage name is Huntley Slim, plans on volunteering his band for the event. “Long before Huntley Slim

was a real band, before we had original music, or even a name, we were given a chance to play at The Cheshire Cat Pub in Carp,� Mellor said. “We’ve had had many good times there, and we watched it get better every year. There would be no Huntley Slim without “The Cat, and we’ll be there having a pint at the grand reopening.� CAT TO REBOUND

The Ottawa Fire Services says the fire was classified as undetermined. But it was consistent with being the result of an electrical fire in the north east area of the bar. Cheshire Cat Pub owner Dustin Therrien is keeping busy picking up the pieces after his beloved business was gutted by fire. He is hopeful experts will continue to say

Official plan in June “For the first time in many years, the stars are aligned at the same time,� he said. Some things you won’t see changed are policies for environmental protection, affordable housing or built heritage, Hume said. For the most part, those policies are working well so the city won’t be touching them up. The draft updates to the Official Plan should be publicly available by June, and the draft master plans for transportation, cycling, pedestrians and infrastructure should be released by October. MAIN THEMES

The 12 planning issues and themes the city is focusing its review on are: 1. Intensification and smart development 2. Urban land issues – building in or building out 3. Protecting and preserving Ottawa’s countryside 4. Creating people-friendly environments through urban design 5. Transit-oriented development – living and working near transit 6. Reviewing employment lands to protect and diversify the economy 7. Providing the infrastructure services needed for growth 8. Public transit 9. Complete streets – making room for all transportation

choices 10. Promoting healthy lifestyles through active transportation 11. Developing travel options to reduce car dependency 12. Affordability – development within the city’s financial means

DUSTIN THERRIEN the stone walls of the former one-room schoolhouse can be saved and built upon as a base for a second Cat. “I’ve been trying to keep organized,� he said. “It looks like we can save the building. And we are dedicated to keeping the identity. We know what it means to everyone around here. We are very aware and very sympathetic to the building.� However, his primary concern appears the welfare of staff. “It’s been going pretty well,� Therrien said. “Eight have found part-time work, and two are on fulltime. That’s not terrible. Some are just pulling their resumes together after being with us for

eight years. They didn’t think they’d need it.� Therrien had nothing to do with the fundraiser, saying he didn’t hear about it until after the first meeting when organizers called to ask for his and staff’s blessing. He said it shows the care and concern friends have for one another in the pub. “They totally care about these people,� he said. “The support from this community has overwhelmed us.� Between 200 and 300 emails, many more Facebook comments, cards brought to his house, the outpouring shows that the Cat was more than a local watering hole for many people, he said. Even when he attended a 67s game with his dad, just to get away from it all for a few hours, a group of eight or so 10-yearolds approached him. “They said they were sorry to hear about the pub,� he said. “It was amazing. Little kids. I was naive to what it meant to people until this happened.� He added that the only negative thing to happen was the fire; everything else has been positive. The team of volunteers putting together the fundraiser includes Karin Carlson, Sarah O’Grady, Collett Tracey, Sylvia Flanigan, Louis Paul, and Dave and Chrissy Rowe. Many more will be volunteering at the event.

Conservative senator attacks Theresa Spence at dinner MP says Idle No More made up of mostly white people Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

R0011863419_0117

EMC news - The guest speaker stole the show at a dinner for a local provincial PC candidate on Jan. 29. Many of the 80-plus people at the Orléans legion wanted to shake the hand of Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau after he shared his ideas for financial accountability for First Nations chiefs while questioning Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence’s recent hunger strike. The senator, an aboriginal Canadian who was born in Maniwaki, Que., made the comments during a dinner at the Orléans legion that was intended to update Ottawa-Orléans PC riding association members and bring out volunteers for candidate Andrew Lister’s next provincial election campaign. Brazeau, 38, is the youngest member of the Senate and is known for his plain-speaking demands for changes to aboriginal governance. He has criticized the Idle No More movement, a campaign to put aboriginal issues on the top of the federal government’s to-do list. Brazeau’s comments about Idle No More have drawn a strong response from some First Nations leaders. During Spence’s hunger strike, her Twitter account was used to call Brazeau “a colonized Indian,” although the tweet was later withdrawn.

During the speech in Orléans, Brazeau referred to Spence’s 44 days on Victoria Island as a “so-called hunger strike,” and mocked her physical shape. “I was sick two weeks ago,” Brazeau said. “I had the flu and I lost five pounds. “I look at Miss Spence, when she started her hunger strike, and now?” Brazeau added as a voice in the hall called out, “She’s fatter,” which drew laughter from much of the audience. In attendance were provincial and federal conservatives, including Ottawa-Orléans Conservative MP Royal Galipeau and NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod. Orléans Coun. Rainer Bloess and former Ontario PC cabinet minister Brian Coburn were also at the dinner. Galipeau also went after Spence in his remarks after Brazeau spoke. He said he went to Victoria Island on Dec. 26 and was allowed into Spence’s tent because he wasn’t recognized as a Conservative MP. “I stood in the circle around Chief Spence,” Galipeau said. “I noticed that manicure of hers. I tell you Anne can’t afford it,” he said, referring to his wife. “Most people in Idle No More are people with my skin colour and about my age. It reminded me of the 1960s and 1970s flower people who are now organizers for the NDP in Ottawa Centre. They are the same people I saw in the Occupy movement the previous year.”

PATRICK BRAZEAU Galipeau’s visit to Victoria Island followed Brazeau’s attempt to speak with Spence. He said he was turned away when he went to see her on Dec. 24 and was told Spence didn’t want to meet with him. “That day … changed the dialogue about what she was really about,” Brazeau said. “What she was really about is the fact that the year before there was a housing crisis at Attawapiskat, her home community. It was bad.” Brazeau said Spence met with members of many other parties, but not Conservatives. “She refused to meet with any Conservatives – the Conservative government, whether you like it or not, who are in power, who can make changes, who can make decisions on behalf of her situation and other people in Canada. And she refused to meet any of them.” He said he then started to receive “hate mail, criticism and death threats.” “I care as much as anyone in this room does. “Nobody wants to see anyone living in those povertystricken situations but there shouldn’t be two different rules for different politicians in this country. “If you’re a white politician you should be accustomed to the same rules, you should follow the same rules and be accountable to the people you represent; the same thing as

First Nations people. And the longer we are hypocritical about it, the longer these problems are going to persist. I have seen it too often.” Brazeau said Idle No More has managed to put aboriginal issues in the news but he doesn’t support the movement’s methods. “They don’t stand for anything,” he said. “I, as an Algonquin person, am living proof that no one will colonize me.” Prior to his speech, Brazeau told the EMC that transparency is the number one issue for First Nations leaders. He wants changes that require them to account for every dollar they receive from the federal government. “All Canadians, including First Nations people, have an interest in how money is spent, where it is going and that they have access to funds when they need it,” he said. “Unfortunately, (the chiefs) aren’t speaking out for more accountability. Everything but that.” That opinion makes him a lightning rod for criticism from some aboriginal leaders, although Brazeau says there are many chiefs who agree with his position. He also said the Indian Act should be scrapped and that the federal Aboriginal Affairs department is unnecessary. “The Indian Act has to go,” he said. “It is the most racist, paternalistic legislation in the world. It denies First Nations people the opportunities other Canadians enjoy.” Brazeau said many Canadians may think aboriginals have advantages such as not having to pay taxes, but he points out that many aboriginals don’t own the land they live on. During a questionand-answer session after his speech, he suggested First Nations people should be given ownership of the land where they live or be able to buy back land previously sold to the federal government.

Brazeau said Aboriginal Affairs includes many wellmeaning staff but wastes money due to size of the bureaucracy and the way money is earmarked for programs. “It’s like a father-son relationship: ‘I know what’s best for you,’” he said. He added that the federal government needs to move to direct payments while allowing more self-governance for First Nations communities. ALLOWANCE, ATTENDANCE

Brazeau alluded to two issues he’s dealt with since being named to the Senate by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2008. He thanked Lister – who serves as the senator’s lawyer – for his help dealing with problems, including accusations that he improperly received a housing allowance. Brazeau received more than $20,000 to offset personal costs because he claimed a residence in Maniwaki, about 130 kilometres from Parliament Hill. Some media reports indicated that he rarely stayed at the Maniwaki address but spent his time in Ottawa. Brazeau told the Orléans audience that his political career hasn’t been very long but has “been fraught with a lot of issues,” “But he has defended me,” Brazeau said of Lister. “He has defended me because what I have done is right, what I have done is honest, and what I have done, even though it comes with a lot of criticism, is what is needed in this country.” Speaking after the dinner, the senator said he’s already spoken in front of a sub-committee that looks at possible accounting breaches. “I furnished documents about my primary residence,” Brazeau said. “It’s up to them to determine. The facts are the facts. “I always practise what I preach.”

MPP urges premier to drop agriculture portfolio Local PC, NDP react to designation of new premier Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Newly designated Premier Kathleen Wynne should stick to one job not take on the roll of agricultural minister, according to Jack MacLaren. Wynne earned the ire of rural Progressive Conservative MPPs such as MacLaren when last week she announced her intention to juggle the two portfolios. She then backtracked, saying she will hold the top job in the Ministry of

Agriculture for just one year. While colleagues such as Lisa MacLeod call the “flip-flopping” an indication of a lack of commitment to the sector, MacLaren questions the practicality.

Legion lobbies Conservatives for funeral, burial benefits EMC news – The federal Conservatives are feeling the heat from military veteran groups. Dominion president of the Royal Canadian Legion Gordon Moore and government relations chair of the funeral service association of Canada Phil Fredette, and executive director of the Last Post Fund Jean-Pierre Goyer announced the launch of a national letter writing campaign to request that the government improve the Funeral and Burial Benefits Program for Veterans at legion branch 469. “At every biennial dominion convention since 2004, the legion has requested the federal government to make some important improvements to the Veterans Funeral and Burial Benefits Program and is dismayed by their inac-

Goddard is concerned Wynne will steal some votes from the NDP. But he says that is nothing new for the Liberals. “They always campaign like the NDP and govern like the PCs,” he said. “I think Wynne’s a good candidate but the Liberals are in a bit of a jam. She could be the next Kim Campbell.” MacLaren agrees that Wynne is a competent, experienced, and articulate politician. But that the Liberal brand is exhausted. In a recent press release he offered a list of gaffes and scandals the have plagued the party over the last nine years in power: • eHealth scandal costs $2 billion and growing; • ORNGE air ambulance costs $1 billion and growing; • cancelled Oakville and Mississauga Power Plants cost $1.3 billion and growing; • Samsung Green Energy

EMC news - Grain Farmers of Ontario would like to congratulate Premier Kathleen Wynne and commend her for taking on the role of Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. A year of great opportunity is ahead for grain farmers in Ontario with the beginning of a new policy framework and many exciting research and market development projects underway. Our organization looks forward to working closely with the Wynne government to create stable, bankable and predictable programming for farmers. “We know the next few months will be extremely busy for the Premier as she manages her new role as well as the duties of Minister of Agriculture,” says Henry Van Ankum, chair of Grain Farmers of Ontario. “As the largest commodity organization in Ontario we would like to offer any help we can provide to aid your familiarization with rural opportunities and issues.”

He said it needs $50 billion in spending to solve. “That should be a priority for all of us.” Morgan Goddard is the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding president for the provincial NDP. He said Wynne, province’s first female and openly gay premier, is on the Liberal’s more progressive side. He sees it as indicative of a shift away from extreme right wing politics in North America back to a politics that offers consensus-building and solutions. “Republicans in the United States have peaked with the anger and frustration they fostered and what it unleashed,” Goddard said. “In Canada, you see it in (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper’s drop in popularity.

However, MacLaren disagrees that there is a major shift toward the left in North America based on Wynne’s victory. He said she holds the same philosophy as predecessor Dalton McGuinty. “They are both pretty far to the left,” MacLaren said. His party will press on when the legislature returns on Feb. 19, and keep election-esque pledges like a promise to end the FITT program. But make no mistake, MacLaren hopes for an election sooner rather than later. Goddard and the NDP aren’t committing to propping up the Liberal minority government in any formal sense. As long as “we get things done” the party is content, he said.

The majority of these men and women are in their 90s; about 2,000 pass on each month,” added Moore. “Starting today, we are calling on our about 330,000 members to send a letter to their respective MPs highlighting the need for government action to improve the Funeral and Burial Benefits program. “All Canadians who wish to support our efforts are encouraged to do so by visiting our website and downloading our letter at www. legion.ca,” said Moore.

Bay Community Association annual meeting set for Feb. 10 David Johnston

EMC news - Residents of Constance and Buckham’s Bay should mark Sunday, Feb. 10 on the calendar to attend the community association’s annual general meeting, beginning at 2 p.m. at the community centre. The meeting promises to be full of interesting topics, according to association president Ian Glen. “There is the past year to review, this year to look forward to, a short update on Project Sandhills (our service and facility expansion project), Bay Days, the 2012 survey and resulting policy package, and the election of the new board,� said Glen. There will also be a vote of members present for people to

sit on the executive. “We will also have a list of the tasks that must be undertaken to keep the centre buzzing with activity, and an opportunity for people to sign up for those that are of interest.� To vote at the meeting, attendees must be paid members of the association. “It is important to get a new membership or renew your existing one to have a vote. A registration and membership table will open at 1:30 p.m. or you can get one on-line at www.cbbca.ca any time.� Individual membership is $10 per year while a family membership is $25. Glen says there are plenty of good reasons to be a member. “Membership dues are used to fund lasting improvements

to the community centre and its facilities and equipment so the association can provide a wide range of sports, cultural and recreational programs for our families and individual community members, such as hockey, soccer, softball, modern square dancing, yoga, tae kwon do, our local branch of the Ottawa Public Library and Girl Guide and Boy Scout programs, to just name a few.� $1M EXPANSION

Ferry upgrades delayed until 2014 EMC news - The maiden voyage of the new $2.8-million ferry to Quyon will have to be put off for at least another year.

The Quyon Ferry company are in the midst of creating - in Shawville - a 215-ton, 21-car cable ferry service. It is to be the largest of its kind in the region.

Ottawa proposes ideas for a sustainable city Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city is proposing 14 new policy ideas or changes to guide the discussion about creating a Liveable Ottawa for the Official Plan and master plan review. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume, Mayor Jim Watson and several city planners fleshed out the ideas during two open-house launch events on Jan. 29. The full proposals and a survey can be found on ottawa.ca/liveableottawa, but here are some highlights: RURAL DEVELOPMENT

Ottawa’s countryside comprises 90 per cent of its land area, and the city wants to ensure development in the rural areas is sustainable. For one thing, the city is proposing to make the moratorium on country estate lot subdivisions permanent. The large-lot subdivisions in the rural area detract from making villages viable as complete communities, Hume said. To do that, the city is proposing to concentrate most development within the three large villages – Richmond, Greely and Manotick – to ensure they have a mix of housing types and businesses. The city wants to examine servicing options that would allow nine mid-sized villages, including Carp, Cumberland, Metcalfe, Vars and North Gower, to expand in the future, but for now, their boundaries are proposed to remain the same. The remaining small villages are proposed to have their boundaries remain the same until they are built out, Hume said.

R0011891969 0207

NEIGHBOURHOOD DESIGN

The city is proposing to create a new generation of main streets, called “streets in transition.� Hume said it would cover streets that don’t quite have the characteristics of a main street, but could still use a boost in density, height and the type of uses that are permitted along them. He suggested the city is looking at boosting heights to up to six storeys along transitional streets such as Baseline Road and Bronson, Fisher, Holland and Woodroffe avenues. One of the questions the city is asking is whether it needs to create “design priority areas� – areas where city staff and the city’s urban design review panel should be paying extra attention to design. The city wants to encourage pedestrian-friendly smallscale commerce in some areas by designating sections of streets as new main streets. Parts of Walkley, Innes and Ogilvie roads and St. Laurent Boulevard are on the list for consideration. Hume alluded to new policies that will guide what’s included in future community design plans, including building heights, to give “certainty� to communities. However, the picture for developers is less clear, Hume said. The city needs to clarify its expectations when it comes to planning policies, especially for areas that don’t have secondary or community design plans. Michelle Taggart of Taggart Investments, a local developer, spoke at the morning open house on Jan. 29 to tell the city that building height limits are a mistake. “It takes a lot of creativity and flexibility,� she said. Without that flexibility, the city will get a lot of short, fat, ugly buildings that don’t offer connections or pathways

through blocks. Taggart said the city needs to look at a more “design-centric certainty.� Hume countered that opinion, saying the flexibility the development industry wants creates “massive conflict� with communities. “If there is a better way for us to avoid that, the development industry haven’t come forward with one,� he said. SKYSCRAPERS

Forty storeys will be the new 20 storeys when it comes to the tall buildings of Ottawa’s future, Hume said, and the city needs to prepare for that. “As our city approaches the one million population mark and Ottawa comes of age, the market and urban design are bringing a new type of built form,� Hume said. “This doesn’t mean that we want to have a city of skyscrapers, but we need to prepare the parameters of where we want this development.� Buildings of 31 storeys or more would only be permitted in areas identified in the new Official Plan. Those locations would be based on proximity to transit, compatibility and design criteria. Hume said buildings of 20 storeys or more would only be permitted on lands that were established in a community design plan or a transit-oriented development study. Whether they are proposed to be 40 storeys or four storeys, building height is a major point of contention in communities. The city is hoping to put some of that strife to rest by setting a new maximum height of 10 to 19 storeys in areas designated as mixed-use centres and employment lands that are immediately beside rapid-transit stations (Transit-

way and light rail) and up to nine storeys elsewhere. For the rest of the urban area, the city is proposing that height limits remain the status quo.

Councillor Eli El-Chantiry

TRANSPORTATION

The city will be reviewing the criteria it uses to decide when to widen roads, Hume said. Transportation planner Colin Simpson expanded on that in the evening meeting. The suggested approach is to switch from using a “peak hour� of the highest morning commute traffic to judge the street’s capacity, and use a more averaged peak period of perhaps three hours. That subtle change would mean a reduction of about 15 per cent in road expansions or the construction of new roads, Simpson said. It’s a change aimed at saving money. Ottawa has a backlog of roads that are crumbling and need resurfacing – about 25 per cent of the city’s roads need to be paved. Constricting how many roads are widened will lead to more traffic congestion, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing depending on where it is, Simpson said. Traffic congestion is a motivator to get people out of private vehicles and onto the bus or a bike. TRANSIT

The city has already embarked on planning for intensified development around transit hubs. But the future light-rail line isn’t the only transit mode the city will focus on. Pinecrest, South Keys/ Greenboro and the Riverside South community core will also be the focus towards encouraging density.

BE CAUTIOUS AROUND ICE AND OPEN BODIES OF WATER Last weekend, it was pointed out to me that there were a couple ice ďŹ shing huts on the Ottawa River in the Constance Bay area that were partially submerged as well as a vehicle that partially drove into an area of the river where the was an open body of water. With incidents like this happening, it’s important to be very cautious when around ice and open bodies of water. 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 grey colour indicates the presence of water. If you need to go out onto the ice, remember the thickness needs to be:

Limit councillors’ access to public purse

A

policy to limit councillors’ ability to dole out money to community groups is a welcome proposal coming out of the mayor’s office. Currently, it’s just an idea being floated around the council table by Mayor Jim Watson, but a policy is expected to be introduced sometime in March. At least one city councillor is already warning community groups in his ward that

the policy would limit their ability to donate money from their office budget to support community events. On the face of it, the policy sounds negative, resulting in less funding for the dozens of grassroots organizations that provide unpaid support services throughout the city. But limiting a councillor’s spending powers doesn’t necessarily mean the money won’t be spent where it’s needed. Just who’s doing the

spending – as it stands, a councillor can take a chunk of money from their office budget – funds provided by taxpayers – to arbitrarily dole out cash to groups of their choosing. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. Don’t get us wrong. We are in no way suggesting

that a donation to the local food bank is a bad idea; we are simply questioning the optics of how the money is spent and how the decision is made. Giving councillors arbitrary access to the public purse offers the opportunity for inequalities in support given to groups and associations from ward to ward. One councillor may choose to spend $10,000 while another may limit their donations to less than $2,000.

We aren’t questioning the morals or ethics of individual councillors, simply the equity of an arbitrary system that invites unfair distribution of funds and the use of public money to in effect campaign for re-election. True, part of a councillor’s role is to promote events and showcase communities, but, as Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley suggests, “I don’t believe we should be handling the money for the events.� Hubley said he rarely gives donations from his office budget because he doesn’t want to give the wrong impression. We couldn’t agree more

– the obvious impression is that the receiver of the money owes the sender gratitude, which they may choose to repay in the form of support during the next election. Watson’s proposal would be part of a code of conduct that’s being developed to build on the work of the city’s new integrity commissioner, such as the lobbyist registry. We suggest the city create a new mechanism to provide support for community groups, such as giving the responsibility to a department. Council could always allow councillors to highlight events and community groups in need of support.

After Dalton, a culture war? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

t’s going to take a little getting used to not having the premier of Ontario living in our town. There’s a lot of advantages to it, not least of which is having someone at Queen’s Park who knows Ottawa exists. That hasn’t always been the case. It’s a pretty big city, Ottawa, but a bit far from Toronto. The reviews on Dalton McGuinty’s tenure as premier have been mixed. The consensus seems to be that he did quite well, but his last few months didn’t do him credit. In Ottawa we knew him as sort of a clunky guy, not a smooth politician, but a person we could be comfortable with. That might explain how he got elected six times as an MPP, three times as premier. McGuinty’s last election was a minority win, which means the opposition parties are looking forward with some relish to the next election. What kind of an election will that be? Could it be different from what we have seen — mild-mannered affairs in which ideology plays a minimal role and the parties cluster into the centre? What observers now fear is a culture war, of the kind we have seen recently in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in Canadian federal politics. In a culture war, the two sides are bitterly divided. Rather than cluster into the centre, they diverge widely and bitterly. They are divided not only on political issues, but on personal beliefs and patterns of behaviour. The stage is set for it, that’s for sure. One of the two leading parties is led by a businessman

from Fort Erie, with a traditional marriage; the other is led by a community activist from Toronto, who is a lesbian. So there you have it: big city versus small town, man versus woman, old values versus new values, traditional marriage versus samesex marriage, businessman versus activist, Barrhaven versus the Glebe. People have talked about this kind of divergence in recent federal elections, with the Harper Conservatives, the hockey fans, versus the Ignatieff Liberals, the Chardonnay-sipping intellectuals. Tim Hortons versus Starbucks. The notion of a culture war is supported by the breakdown of the vote: Ignatieff’s main strength was in downtown Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver; Harper won the small towns and the suburbs. So is that what we have to look forward to when Ontario goes to the polls? Probably not. Because we are more complex than that. Our downtown intellectuals like hockey. There are opera fans in small towns, book clubs in Carleton Place. Barrhaven has a Starbucks, Tim Hortons has Wi-Fi, McDonald’s has lattes. There’s a gadget wine fanciers use to put air into the stuff and supposedly make it taste better. They buy that at Home Hardware. We are all moving closer together. We all see basically the same TV and get the same Internet. Isolation is a thing of the past and differences no longer shock us. Even the gay factor, the one thought to be the possible spark for a culture war, is far less of an issue than it might have been 10 years ago. Small town parents have children with gay friends. It is not a big deal. Certainly you won’t hear anything about it from the opposition party leaders in the next election campaign. Whatever their private views they know that the biggest political risk is in appearing to be intolerant. It’s pretty hard to wage a culture war under those circumstances. It will likely be just another boring old election, fought on the usual issues, which is not that bad a thing.

Vast majority of waterways now unprotected, thanks to Conservatives

RADICAL CHANGES

The new Act makes radical changes. It lists 97 lakes and 62 rivers (or parts thereof) that will receive federal oversight: a vanishingly small fraction of Canada’s millions of lakes and tens of thousands of rivers. Transport Canada describes three criteria used to develop the new list: the waterway must support heavy commercial and/or recreational navigation, only actively used portions can be listed, and it should be accessible by ports and marinas in proximity to heavily populated areas. Exactly how many lakes and rivers were dropped from federal protection? A Natural Resources Canada website formerly said that more than 30,000 lakes greater than three square kilometers in area are found in Canada. However, “To better serve Canadians, the Atlas of Canada recently re-organized its website‌ As a result, many pages have been removed‌â€? The few remaining federally protected waterways include the Petawawa River from the Barron River to the Ottawa River. One wonders, did Transport Canada officials bring canoes to Petawawa and

shoot the rapids to prove this can be done? The Ottawa River itself is the only other Renfrew County waterway listed. In practical terms, this means that the dam currently proposed for the Petawawa will receive federal scrutiny, but the one proposed for the Bonnechere will not. Other Ontario waterways that made the list include Kemptville Creek, Big Duck Pond, Pollywog Lake, Lovesick Lake, and Dow’s Lake in Ottawa, a small widening of the Rideau Canal. The Carp and Mississippi rivers did not. A November 2012 backgrounder from the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters lists five major concerns with the new Act. Notably, the Act fails to acknowledge “the importance of navigation to recreational fishing and hunting and devalues the overall socioeconomic importance of the recreational fishing and hunting industry in Canada.� Why did the government make these changes? A federal website says that the Act was “one of Canada’s most antiquated pieces of legislation, and that Transport Canada was even reviewing projects on “a temporary creek created by spring run-off that dries up within a month or two.� According to CBC News, the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities led

Dentistry @ Arnprior

the 10-year effort to replace the Act. Members were fed up with the red tape imposed by Transport Canada in replacing old bridges with culverts. Their lobbying efforts continued even after the government brought in amendments in 2009 that excluded such “minor works�. The Act now applies to only three Saskatchewan waterways and the rural municipalities are “ecstatic�.

HISTORIC RIGHT GONE

But not all analysts agree that this is about eliminating what Transport Canada refers to as “pointless assessments�. Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada, characterizes the Act as Canada’s “first environmental law�: one that created “Canadians’ historic right to navigate the lakes, rivers, and streams of Canada without being impeded by pipelines, bridges, power lines, dams, mining and forestry equipment, and more.� A Green Party backgrounder notes that before the federal government changed the Act, “any body of water deemed navigable could be accessed to the high water mark without that being considered trespassing.� This opens up a whole new area for legal wrangling. If the federal government hasn’t listed a waterway do you still have a right to use it? Was the new Act justified? Will it

EMC lifestyle - Many people are asking what is behind the Harper government’s replacement of the Navigable Waters Protection Act by the Navigation Protection Act in the recent “omnibus� budget bill, and how it will affect our use of lakes and rivers in Canada. Parliament passed the Act in 1882 at the end of Sir John A. MacDonald’s third term as prime minister. For 130 years the federal government used the Act to regulate construction of bridges, dams or other structures that might interfere with movement of watercraft. Neither the original Act nor subsequent amended versions precisely defined a “navigable waterway�. However, in 1906, the Supreme Court of Canada held that any water that was navigable and could float a canoe – or a log - was within the Act’s scope. This gave federal protection to the Ottawa Valley log drives that were so important to Canada’s early commercial development and international trade. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice summarized these previous legal rulings in 2011. A waterway must be capable in its natural state of being traversed by watercraft such as a canoe. The waterway could be used to float logs, log-rafts and booms. The waterway could be navigable over part

of its course and not navigable over other parts. And it need not be actively used for navigation as long as it had the potential to be so used.

Earn Extra Money! Wynne to keep breaks for rich Keep Your Weekends Free! LETTER

To the editor, Kathleen Wynneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election as Liberal leader and premier-designate changes nothing in Ontario and in Renfrew County. Although I congratulate Ms. Wynne for winning her partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership, she worries me because she completely endorses Dalton McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failed agenda. Under Dalton McGuinty, the Liberals chose to give big corporations like banks and oil companies huge tax breaks while upping personal taxes, cutting the services we depend on, and selling off important provincial assets and services, like the disastrous ORNGE air ambulance privatization. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even going to sell off all our personal information when Service Ontario goes private. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the education crisis. I expect Ms. Wynne to wriggle out of this because teachers would rather be working with kids than upsetting parents, but the same problems remain. Teachers and all public service workers are being told to take the hit because the Liberals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tax corporations and wealthy people fairly. And she refuses to denounce the antidemocratic Bill 115 that allowed them to impose contracts.

Dalton McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy in rural Ontario wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change a bit with Ms. Wynne. The Liberals have ruined green energy for years to come by bringing in giant multinational corporations instead of harnessing the goodwill and resources of landowners and municipalities. Everyone knows we need to move to green energy, and many green energy projects should be in rural Ontario. But the McGuinty Liberals took a good idea, threw enormous money at it, and poisoned the well for future development. The Endangered Species Act they passed with no stakeholder consultation has put development on hold and threatened peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; livelihoods across rural Ontario. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be this way. They could have enlisted the goodwill and stewardship of local people in protecting species had they developed a plan with the help of communities. Now, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve totally alienated rural Ontarians.Kathleen Wynne may represent a refreshingly different face from Dalton McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same old Liberals with the same old policies that are hurting working people in Ontario, especially rural Ontario.

you try to get between Ginger and her calf, you might get yourself killed. The Farmer found that out the hard way, when he tried to help Gingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new calf Accidental to suckle last year. My Farmwife husband dodged out of the way of the aggressive mama as she tried to toss him out of the pen. That calf never did learn how to nurse. He was bottle fed until he was old enough to get out on the pasture. Big Betty arrived along with Ginger, but she was a heifer. She had never had a calf before. Both girls were pregnant when we got them. When their time came, we were somewhat prepared but also a little scared to death in case something went wrong. We had our neighbour, a more experienced cattleman, on standby. On a sunny April weekend, Betty gave birth to a little bull calf. She seemed a little flustered and almost embarrassed by the experience, or maybe it was the spectators. Anyway, she went easy on us. No problems. Ginger had Mocha the heifer the same week. Mocha has turned out to be a very pleasant animal. She succumbed to hands-on attention from the beginning and although she occasionally protests by tossing her head, she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to mind a pat on her flank from time to time.

EMC lifestyle The last time I went over to the cowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side of the barnyard I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize half of them. With three calves born in the last month, I thought I should make a point of writing down who belongs to whom and what sex they are, what colouring they have, etc. The Farmer is pretty good at writing everything down in his log book but he does leave a few important items out. For example, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t name them. And he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t note their specific personality traits. These are points that are good to know if you plan to handle one of them, or attempt to retrieve them when they jump the fence. In the fall of 2007, when we were just a few months married, we bought our first pair of cows. We had gone to Leoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s livestock auction in Greely with our hearts set on a couple of Black Angus but those went through the ring so fast, for such a high price, our heads were spinning. A pair of Herefords was more our speed. Ginger, the older and wiser of the two, is a very suspicious girl, always peering at us from around barn beams and round bales. She once got in between the hay and the tractor, and the fork pierced her side. The week she spent in the paddock, being repeatedly treated until her wound healed, did not endear her to us. If

Bats galore in the Arnprior and District Museum EMC lifestyle – Finding bats in older buildings is never a surprise. However, this past week an unusually high number turned up in Arnprior. In addition to species regularly found inside houses, the “colony” contained species that never appear inside buildings. That is because the bats are part of a Royal Ontario Museum exhibit currently on display in the Arnprior and District Museum. Bats intrigue us. They are the only flying mammals, joining dragonflies and birds in

ears, surprisingly large canine teeth, and a furry body positioned between two Nature’s peculiar Way membranous wings. The exploitive use in horror films of their odd appearances and habit of lapping blood (done by only a few tropical species) has resulted in many a nightmare. Bats flit back and forth over

our heads, not to entangle themselves in our hair (a persistent myth) but to pluck beetles, moths, and other insects from the air. Our local species are masters at catching flying invertebrates, eating half their body weight most nights, with pregnant females doubling that amount. And they find food in a most unusual way, by throwing out ultrasonic pulses and listening to the returning echoes. Each species uses a slightly different frequency and pulse

rate of sound. As they fly, bats send out sound pulses, testing the air for obstacles to avoid or objects to eat. When a shape of interest is detected, the pulse rate increases and the frequency elevates. This provides a finer picture, and if the object is edible, the bat swoops in and grabs it in its mouth or uses its membranous tail as a net to first snatch it from the air. Five of our eight local species are resident all year. Big Brown Bats and Little Brown Myotis are the most common species. Winter is spent in large groups in hibernacula, which are often old mines or caves. Less common species such as Northern Myotis can be found in their clusters. With lowered body temperature and a much-reduced heart rate (which is as high as 1,100 beats per minute during flight), they spend winter in a dormant state. Hibernating bats currently face grave danger. A fungus imported from Europe is decimating bats across eastern North America.

Called the White Nose Syndrome because it proliferates around the face, the fungus disrupts their sleep, causing them to burn up precious fat stores. Six million bats have died since the fungus made its North American debut in 2005/2006. Many colonies have been wiped out by this deadly infliction. Red Bats are one of three species that migrate. They also face new and grave danger. Wind turbines now block their age-old migration paths. A turbine’s rotating blades are easily evaded, but the pressure change they create causes a bat’s lungs to burst. All our bats are currently under siege, and their future looks bleak. If you want to learn more about bats, visit the Arnprior and District Museum (www. arnprior.ca/Museum.htm). It is sad but true that in the future, museums may be the only places these fascinating creatures will inhabit. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

That year I had to actually fill a wheel barrow with the fallen fruit and dump it into the barnyard to keep her inside. Our first attempt at breeding the cows involved artificial insemination. I showed the girls the brochure and we chose a strapping young mate together. It worked, the first time, so we tried it again. That second year, Betty didn’t catch. She actually looked ashamed and disappointed. Betty’s eyes give away her emotions. And when she is excited about the sound of sweet feed hitting the inside of a bucket, she comes running across the pasture like a pup, often kicking her legs up and swinging her head from side to side. I told her not to worry; she would be pregnant next time. We got a real live bull, who was quite tame and shy at first, but evidently very good at his job. So far this year we are doing very well. Ginger, Mocha , Oreo and Betty all had their calves and although the Farmer helped get them started a bit by stealing colostrum from the mom and feeding it to the babe, they are now feeding and thriving. Oreo had her calf and left him in the snow but the Farmer found him before he froze to death. Now it’s Julie’s turn to add to our herd. Hopefully before we leave on vacation and the kids take over farming duties.

Dr. Nick Whitehead, says that not all of these signs of school trouble have to happen at the same time, but when one or more happens frequently, things may be getting off track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sooner that parents recognize the symptoms of school trouble and seek help for their children, the easier getting back on track and ending school troubles becomes.â&#x20AC;?

St. Mike’s students reach out to children in Nicaragua Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - There’s a spring in the step of students at St. Michael Elementary School. Maybe it was the music or maybe it’s the sense of pride after helping others in need. There are just 261 students at the school in Corkery, but another 700 children will be able to attend school thanks to two campaigns that raised $2,465. The money will be used by the organization Schoolbox to provide school supplies for

children in Nicaragua. The money will mean pencils and notebooks for as many as 500 children in the Central American country. Principal Nicola Benton said the money was raised by selling plastic bracelets bearing the letters WWJD (What would Jesus do?) and with a dance-a-thon. “The Grade 6 students acted as DJs,” Benton said of the dance-a-thon, adding that classes of different ages arrived in the gym for 70minute sessions. “The kids danced all day long,” she said. “I think we played Gangnam Style about 25,000 times that

day.” Schoolbox, which was founded by Almonte’s Tom Affleck about six years ago, was selected for the donation after a former teacher at St. Michael visited Central America and saw the need for school supplies. In many cases, ownership of a pencil and notebook is required before a child can go to school, and Schoolbox has distributed more than 200,000 notebooks by the end of 2012. “The kids could really relate,” Benton said of the fundraiser’s purpose. Student representatives handed a cheque

Snowmobile trails free Feb. 16-18 EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Snowmobile enthusiasts want you to find out what they like so much about the sport. The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) is offering its trails for free on the Family Day weekend (not this weekend, as was erroneously advertised in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper). It is Quebec where this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free trails promotion is being offered Feb. 9-10. Normally, trails for free is on the same weekend on both sides of the river, but this year the OFSC is holding the event on the Family Day long weekend. The Ontario organization has created a free â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Try our Trailsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; permit to be used on any and all OFSC trails Feb. 16 to 18. It should be quite the weekend, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also free fishing weekend in Ontario. To get a free snowmobile trail permit, visit www.ofsc.on.ca. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome to the OFSC trails and enjoy your ride.â&#x20AC;?

Exercise caution when towing snowmobiles EMC news - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are reminding snowmobilers to keep snowmobile trailers in good condition and to operate them safely, legally and with great caution. With more riders trailering snowmobiles greater distances each winter on public roads, safety is a constant concern.

WATCH YOUR WEIGHT

Every driver should know the maximum towing capacity for the tow vehicle, the maximum load capacity for the trailer being towed and be sure that the weight of sleds, cargo and people does not exceed these limits. It is also necessary to be in compliance with the specific requirements for the weight of a trailer being towed as found in The Highway Traffic Act (HTA).

Thinking About Selling Your Old Gold & Silver? Find out what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s REALLY worth from the most trusted name in the industry

SECURE YOUR TRAILER

Make sure that the ball-hitch on your tow vehicle is the right size for the receiver on the trailer and that the lever closes firmly with a safety pin in place to prevent it from opening accidentally. Hook the trailer to your tow vehicle with safety chains by crossing the chains underneath the trailer hitch. Use chains with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sâ&#x20AC;? hooks that have safety clips with closure capability to keep them attached.

CHECK YOUR LIGHTS

GET REGISTERED

Make sure the trailer is plated and registered with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO). Even home-built trailers have to be registered and plated. Use proper tow mirrors: Properly sized and positioned side mirrors are crucial for safe lane changing and keeping an eye on your load while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hauling it. DRIVING TIPS

Make sure your tow vehicle has good winter tires. While towing the additional weight of a loaded trailer, it is very important to moderate your speed, avoid jamming on the brakes or making sudden manoeuvres, and to stay well back from any vehicle ahead. Be careful while passing, watch out for crosswinds, and be sure to swing extra widely on all turns. For more information on trailering, go to: e-laws.gov.on.ca.

Check your directional signals and stop lights prior to every trip to ensure they are working properly. Faulty connections due to exposure to weather and elements can be a safety risk to you and other drivers. Check your bearings, wheels and tires: Lubricate trailer bearings and tighten wheel lugs at least once a season. Before each trip, check tires (including the spare) for cracks, adequate tread and proper inflation.

Organizers happy with Bay winter carnival Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

A good time was had by all at the Constance & Buckham’s Bay Community Association Winter Carnival over the weekend. Most events took place at the community centre Saturday. The place was packed with kids in the morning. The day included kids crafts under the direction of Kathryn Scott. “Kathryn did a super job running the crafts,” organizer Sandi Sbardella said. Sbardella also thanked Home Depot, Funhaven and Reptiles Rock. Home Depot helped kids make tool boxes, bird houses, picture frames and more. Hammers were supplied. The City of Ottawa also showed its support for the winter carnival, she added. Crowds were good for breakfast with 80 people coming out to enjoy their first meal of the day.

Winter Woodlot Conference set for Feb. 20 This year’s theme is Eastern Ontario’s Forests - Updates & Options. It will feature knowledgeable speakers and exhibitors who will address some topical issues affecting Eastern Ontario’s forests. First up, Dr. Taylor Scarr, the Provincial Forest Entomologist for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources will present essentially a forest health report card that will highlight the latest news on tree diseases and invasive plants and pests to watch out for and how to deal with them, such as the Emerald Ash Borer. Next up, a panel of representatives from six different organizations will give brief updates

on different landowner programs that can be of benefit in a variety of ways. After a coffee break, two presenters will describe different non-timber forest product options that can yield new income and diversity opportunities for woodlot and land owners. Steve Leroux from Greenbarn Nursery will introduce the audience to new varieties of locally-grown, cold and disease-resistant fruit and edible nut trees. Hot lunch will be followed by a talk from Tom Richardson, General Manager of MazinawLanark Forest Inc, who will deliver an informed state of the forest industry and mar-

ket conditions update, including emerging trends. Then the Eastern Ontario Model Forest will showcase its short but engaging Doors open for registration and coffee at 8:30 and proceedings run from 9:00 to 3:30. The cost is $30.00 which includes lunch or $20 without lunch.

Community groups could see funding dry up Limits on councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; donations under discussion, office budgets may be limited Laura Mueller

EMC news - City councillors have begun to warn community groups that their ability to donate money from their office budgets to community events may soon be limited. There is no firm proposal yet, but councillors say Mayor Jim Watson is proposing a cap on how much of their office budget councillors are allowed to donate to community causes, as well as limits on how involved municipal elected officials can be in the financial side of community events. Donations and sponsorships are allowed under the current rules and the online office expense disclosure forms include a section for councillors to list the amount of donations they doled out. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an area of concern to councillors because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of our role â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to promote events and showcase our communities,â&#x20AC;? said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That said, there are

examples, shall we say, where someone may get the wrong perception of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on â&#x20AC;Ś I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe we should be handling all the money for the events.â&#x20AC;? Hubley rarely gives donations from his office budget, he said, because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want his residents to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get the wrong impressionâ&#x20AC;? of the way he spends their tax dollars on their behalf. The policy would be part of a code of conduct thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being developed to build on the work of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new integrity commissioner; efforts that include the lobbyist registry. The proposal would put more parameters around how that office budget could be spent. Each councillor received $234,000 in 2012 to spend on office supplies and staffing, as well as community events, donations and sponsorships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As of right now, there is no definition as to how our office money should be spent,â&#x20AC;? said Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt. Bob Brocklebank of the Federation of Citizens Associations said anything to make council more transparent is a good thing, but a lack of flexibility in this case could be detrimental to community involvement.

The availability and use of councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; office-budget funds varies widely across the different wards, but that money is often used to rent space for community events and more importantly, community meetings, Brocklebank said. Allowing flexibility in how councillors spend their allotment means there are more funds available to encourage community engagement, Brocklebank said, adding he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think councillors should be proud if they make a point of avoiding donations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is on the public consultation side that I am concerned about the limitations that this might bring,â&#x20AC;? Brocklebank said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes you go out and fix problems that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist.â&#x20AC;? Changing a practice that residents support and no one is complaining about doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much sense, Moffatt said. He keeps his own â&#x20AC;&#x153;mental capâ&#x20AC;? on spending; he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give out more than $10,000 of his office budget per year to community causes. Supporting community causes with tax dollars collected from citizens makes sense, Moffatt said. The councillor said he tends not to organize or run commu-

nity events because there is a large number of active groups in his ward. Instead, he contributes money to rent space or back community-led events in other ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to be able to support them so that they can do community-oriented events that build community spirit and help bring the community to-

gether,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our job is â&#x20AC;Ś to support our communities and make our communities grow.â&#x20AC;? Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office budget is $778,000, but Hubley said the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t proposed to be subject to the same rules. That concerned the Kanata South councillor, who said any

Starting off hockey careers with fun seeing so many young players enjoying the game that was his passion. And the players were certainly having a good time, as each of the eight teams played two games on half the rink.

Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports – Many hockey players have the first trophy for their case, and their first tournament under their belts, after the Jon Brunette Memorial Fun Day welcomed eight teams to the W. Erksine Johnston Arena in Carp on Feb. 2. “It’s the start of their career, and the start of the trophy case,” said Andy von Zuben, director of initiation level hockey with the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association. “It’s their inspiration to keep playing.” The five to seven year old players all received a trophy, paid for by the Jon Brunette Memorial Fund at the end of the fun day tournament.

MEMORIAL

The fund was created after Brunette passed away after a snowmobile accident in 2003. He played eight years with the WCMHA before playing for the Ottawa Valley Titans and the Arnprior Packers Jr. B team. His mother, Valerie, works to administer the funds raised through the annual summer golf tournament, organized by herself and Jon’s friend Brent McQueen. The funds go towards the

Liam Joseph, of the Stittsville Silver Streak, said he likes playing in tournaments “because you get to play more games,” before the whistle blew and adding, “Oh, I’ve got to go and play now.” Cameron Menard, 7, a West Carleton Warriors player, said he liked to get to play different teams during the fun day. Three West Carleton Warriors teams played in the tournament, along with the Richmond/Munster HD Bruins, the Kanata Stormtroopers, Stittsville Silver Streak, the Almonte/Pakenham Thunder Major Mytes and the Nepean Flames. This year, the fund also provided hockey equipment to the late Erin Vance’s twins, who are playing hockey with the WCHMA this year. Valerie Brunette said that their fees had been covered, so the fund donated $500 to help with getting the boys set up with skates and other equipment to start playing.

EMC sports - The West Ottawa Soccer Club (WOSC) held its 2012 annual general meeting Jan. 28, at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville. Despite inclement weather a strong member contingent joined the proceedings to learn about Club successes and challenges in 2012 and the path ahead. The meeting was kicked off by WOSC President Brian Mason highlighting key club successes in the area of capacity-building, primarily through the addition of new staff resources, including the club’s inaugural CEO Bjorn Osieck. The spotlight was also shone on the remarkable reconstruction efforts of the club’s dome and office facilities on Richardson Side Road, which had been destroyed in a fire in 2011. The facility did re-open in October of 2012 and has been the sought after hub of the club’s winter programs and leagues since. “To see how far we as a club have come in recovering from the near catastrophic loss of our home in 2011 has been truly inspiring,” said Mason. “We are unspeakably grateful to our partners at TMSI, who have supported the rebuilding process decisively and skillfully every step of the way.” The assembly was treated to a presentation of club program highlights and statistics, underscoring WOSC’s continued unwavering commitment to the principles of long-term player development at all levels of its “Pyramid of Play”. Recognizing the critical importance of volunteer leadership for the club’s success, Mason took the opportunity to recognize outgoing director and club head coach Ray Scobie. “Ray Scobie has been a tireless and tremendous contributor in the at times very challenging journey that led the

club to where we stand today, and for that we are deeply indebted to him,” said Mason. “All along Ray has been a true friend of the club and of our beautiful game and a champion of LTPD. His technical vision and enthusiasm will be sorely missed at the Board level and we hope to keep him engaged with the club in other capacities going forward.” Treasurer Sam Sgabellone presented the treasurer’s report and audited financial statements. Recovering from the challenges of 2011 on and off the field, WOSC finished its fiscal year ending September 2012 with a modest surplus from operation. These funds will be added to the club’s reserve funds, which will enable the organization to consider pursuing future opportunities including potential facility development partnerships, and also provide a required safeguard against unforeseen challenges. Osieck, who joined the organization two months ago after a six-anda-half year stint as executive director of B.C. soccer, then took the floor to introduce himself and outline the priorities for WOSC in 2013 and beyond. He stressed the importance of team work in moving an organization the size of WOSC to the next level and emphasized that his approach would be driven by connecting and collaborating with stakeholders. Elections of officers marked the final portion of the proceedings. The positions of vice president, treasurer, and two directorships-at-large were up for election for two-year terms respectively. Steve Loomes was elected as the club’s new VP; Sam Sgabellone was confirmed as Treasurer by acclamation, and Peter Kuciak and Steve Rosettani were elected as directors-at-large.

EMC news - Ottawa’s top athletes and their families gathered at Algonquin College on Jan. 30 for Canada’s largest amateur athletics awards. The Ottawa Sports Awards, celebrating its 60th anniversary, handed out awards in every sport, recognizing coaches, athletes and volunteers. The stars of the evening were Kanata’s Craig Savill, curler, and Orléans’ Courtnay Pilypaitis, basketball player, who were male and female athletes of the year. Savill won the 2012 Brier and is the current world champion, while Pilypaitis competed for Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games. The women’s athlete of the year trophy was renamed for six-time winner Kristina Groves, a Brookfield High School graduate, was able to attend the banquet to present Pilypaitis with the newly-named Kristina Groves Female Athlete of the Year Award. But it wasn’t all about the stars, as athletes from littlerecognized sports such as touch football and cricket were recognized for being the top in their sports in 2012. It was the 60th year for the event, originally the Associated Canadian Travellers Sportsmen’s Dinner, and organizers invited an athlete up to the stage to represent each decade. Anne Heggveit-Hamilton, Pat Morris, the Takahashi family, Linda Thom, Glenroy Gilbert and Groves represented the decades. “Ottawa…provides the ideal environment to attract sports-minded individuals,” Heggveit-Hamilton said. “Our clubs have fostered and nurtured young athletes.”

Sports awards honour many AWARDS, from page 29

Jen Boyd, who was female coach of the year in 2007, took home the honours for the 2012 sporting year, coaching Algonquin College and Ashbury College womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rugby teams. Both teams had near-perfect seasons, with the Ashbury Colts winning the silver medal at the provincial cham-

pionship. Bruce Campbell took home the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup for outstanding contribution to sport in Ottawa for his work with the East Nepean Little League Baseball Association. The Brian Kilrea Lifetime Achievement Coaching Award went to David Hart for his work with the national water polo teams. For his work with the

Rideau Canoe Club and Canoe/Kayak Canada, the Mark Lowry Memorial Award for sports volunteer or administrator went to Charles Slade. Minto Skating Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elizabeth Clark won the lifetime achievement award for technical official for her figure skating judging and work to bring elite skaters to Ottawa for workshops.

Heggveit-Hamilton said that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;layer-cakeâ&#x20AC;? it takes to put together sport includes volunteers, officials, coaches as well as athletes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The awards have been expanded to include all the ingredients in my imaginary layer-cake,â&#x20AC;? former Olympic alpine skier Heggveit-Hamilton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the icing on that cake is recognition.â&#x20AC;?

Country takes on city to kick off Fitzroy winter carnival Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC events - Organizers of the Feb. 7-9 Fitzroy Winter Carnival remind everyone to be sure and head out to one of the many events planned in and around the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community centre. From tonight (Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) spaghetti supper that kicks off the carnival to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Survivorman Challenge, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for everyone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want people to

come out and enjoy the rink and spend time in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Leigh Ann Kyte, one of the carnival organizers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to bring carnival back to what it used to be.â&#x20AC;? There are â&#x20AC;&#x153;tonsâ&#x20AC;? of volunteers who have come forward to ensure another successful event with all kinds of activities going on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the ďŹ rst time this year thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a country versus city hockey game,â&#x20AC;? said Kyte.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;At 7 p.m. Thursday after the spaghetti supper some City of Ottawa guys are coming out to take on some of our Fitzroy boys.â&#x20AC;? Kyte said it looks like the weather is somewhat co-operating with carnival plans. Organizers are really excited about the return of the mega-sliding hill, a man-made snow slope that is making its return this year â&#x20AC;&#x153;We give it a bit of help and ice it a bit and the kids can have fun sliding all day,â&#x20AC;?

their time.â&#x20AC;? Also returning is the popular Saturday night trivia event.

said Kyte. Local entertainment is scheduled to entertain the crowds Saturday afternoon in the hall. Among the other highlights this year is the Survivorman challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Survivorman challenge was a big success last year and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back,â&#x20AC;? said Kyte of the event that includes sawing a log, driving a nail and starting a ďŹ re. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people will be back to see if they can better

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The McAskills organize a really fun event, said Kyte. For a full schedule of events see www.ďŹ tzroyharbour.com.

Smells of winter a big part of Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childhood memories us just had galoshes that laced up tight around our ankles. It was a sign of wealth if your galoshes had fur on them. Sadly, I never owned such a pair as that! The boys wore either gum rubbers or rubber boots. The gum rubbers and boots had a thick layer of red around the soles. Most of them were bought at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store, where they hung from the ceiling. Mr. Briscoe used a long pole with a hook on it to retrieve them. I could never

EMC lifestyle - The Northcote School smelled differently in the winter time than it did in the summer. That may have a lot to do with the fact Miss Crosby opened the windows in the warm weather. But I thought back then it had more to do with the piles of gum rubbers, wet socks, the wood stove, and the bagged lunches on the table at the back of the room. All the girls at the Northcote School wore galoshes. Some had rabbit fur down their fronts, and then some of

fathom how he knew what size he was bringing down, but he never seemed to make a mistake. After running around the school yard before Miss Crosby rang either the morning or recess bell, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of us whose feet werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t soaked to the skin. That meant that as soon as we got into the school room, we pulled off our outer foot wear, and gum rubbers, galoshes, and rubber boots, and they were all laid out around the pot-bellied stove where blocks of wood had been placed to lean the footwear against. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long, with the fire in the stove fair jumping, for the array of galoshes and boots to smell to high heaven. The girls put on felt slippers, hand-made of course, and the boys just walked around in their socks, which soon smelled as bad as the array of boots near the stove. We girls wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dream of wearing the same stockings to

school two days in a row, but from the smell of the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; feet, my older sister Audrey said she doubted their socks had been changed for over a week. And that included my three brothers, who Mother thought were old enough to look after their own feet. Only a few of the pupils had tin lunch boxes. My little friend Joyce had one with a bright red painted lid, and a hook inside that anchored the little thermos bottle. Of course, Joyceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family were very rich, I thought. Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they live in a brick house, and have a flush toilet? So she could afford a bright tin lunch box. However, most of us took our lunch in brown paper bags, saved after making purchases at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. These bags once held tea, sugar, or rolled oats, and were never thrown out. We had a rack in our kitchen that had a spring lever attached to it, and all the bags were neatly folded and kept on this rack which hung by the

wood box. Most were just the right size for a school lunch. There was a crudely built table at the back of the school room, and this is where all the lunches were kept. All the bags looked the same, and it always amazed me how I never once knew any of us to get our lunches mixed up! It was an unwritten law never to bring a sandwich with onions on it. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the smell to fill the small one room school house, and drown out the stench of the array of footwear around the stove. Which, on second thought, would not have been such a bad idea! It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to figure out what a lot of the pupils had brought to eat. Head cheese was a staple in the Depression years, and well seasoned with summer savoury, and sliced thin, often filled sandwiches back then. I hated head cheese with a passion. My distaste was right up there with my hatred for blood pudding. It had more to do with watching Mother make both on the kitchen table, than the taste of it that turned my stomach. My very favourite sandwich was one made with bologna. Favourite, but rare. The few slices Mother bought on rare occasions, to me, was the

ultimate school lunch. I loved bologna with a passion. There were always home-made cookies, fruit was unheard of. We toted milk in glass jars. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hard to tell who had what for their lunch. You could smell the headcheese, and the maple cookies long before the paper bags were opened. Miss Crosby bent the rules at lunch time, allowing us to sit where we wanted, while she still kept an eagle eye on all of us from her desk at the front of the room. By the time the school day came to a close at four oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock, the familiar smell of school books, chalk and erasers was long lost. The room reeked of dried out footwear, wet mitts, and socks. When the last of us left the school, Miss Crosby could be seen swinging the storm and inner doors open wide, and putting a block of wood against them to hold them open to complete air out the place. And so that by the time we next came to the Northcote School, the only smell would be from the freshlystarted wood fire raging in the old stove in the centre of the room. But like the day before, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the smells of winter to take over.

New book club for teens Carp branch of the Ottawa Public Library is introducing a new book club for teens aged 13 to 17 starting Thursday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. “The idea is to create a space for teen book lovers to come together once a month and talk about their favourite books,” says teen facilitator Valerie Jorgensen. The book club is modelled after the two successful clubs that already exist within the branch – one for seniors and another for 9-12 year olds. “Both clubs have been operating for over ten years, but we’ve never had a program specifically aimed at teens until now,” Jorgensen says. The first book being discussed is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. Copies can be picked at the Carp branch.

New fentanyl intervention service to serve Ottawa region Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Ottawa police Staff Sgt. Kal Ghadban addresses a crowd of about 50 people in Manotick on Jan. 21 about a growing fentanyl problem in the area. year-old Manotick student, overdosed and died. Police began to connect a rash of break-ins to a small group of addicted teenagers and youths in the village. A town hall meeting was called in November to address the issue, which was widely publicized. Police have since identified other fentanyl hot spots across the city, including in Orleans, according to Ottawa police Staff Sgt. Kal Ghadban. Now, the Royal Ottawa has responded with the regional opioid intervention service in an effort to help youth and early users get off the drugs quickly.

Program developer Dr. Melanie Willows said more and more youth are admitting themselves to the hospital with opioid addictions, but the wait time for the hospital’s small detox unit is “unacceptably long.” “Thinking of someone who has only been using opioids for three months waiting another four to six months to get help didn’t make a lot of sense,” she told a crowd of about 50 people at the Jan. 21 meeting. The new intervention service is an outpatient program geared to youths under 30 and to people who have been using for fewer than five years.

are still there,” Corace said. The service offers a threeweek detox period, during which the patient receives doses of an “opioid agonist” that allows the patient to taper off their addiction. The client will also build a treatment plan and have access to ongoing counselling. Every month, the service will host an orientation for addicts and families of addicts who want to get help. If the service is not right for a person, Willows said, the service will help point them in the right direction. “We’re hoping this is going to mean no more knocking on the wrong door,” she said. The next orientation session will be held on Feb. 7 for families of youth struggling with an opioid addiction. Addictions counsellors will be available to discuss treatment privately with youth. Clark knows all too well what fentanyl addiction looks like. Her son was 17 when he tried the drug at a party and was hooked. In the middle of Grade 12, he was kicked out of St. Mark Catholic High School in Manotick and sent to rehab. Within three weeks, he was living at the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, receiving treatment for his fentanyl addiction. Eighteen months later and with the help of the rehab cen-

tre, he’s clean – but it’s easy for her to imagine a relapse. “He is straight now but it’s a day-to-day deal,” said Clark. Clark has now organized a fundraiser for the treatment centre, which is one of the partners with the Royal’s new intervention service, and the only non-profit rehab centre in eastern Ontario. On Feb. 12, the Valentine for Lives murder mystery dinner will offer dinner and entertainment at the Lone Star ranch on Hunt Club Road in south Nepean. The Kemptville Players theatre group will stage the murder mystery and Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod will speak about the drug issue. Tickets are $50 each. Clark said she is simply hoping to raise money for an organization that stood behind her when the rest of the community seemed to turn its back. “For my family, Dave Smith was a lifeline,” said Clark, who also received counselling there while her son was recovering. “I don’t know where I’d be without it.” For more information or to purchase tickets visit ottawapropertypros.com.

EMC news - A growing drug problem in the region has prompted the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre to develop an early intervention service for youth addicted to painkillers. The outpatient service was launched in early January and was discussed in detail on Jan. 21 at a public meeting in Manotick, where Ottawa’s fentanyl abuse problem first became apparent last summer. Fentanyl is a strong prescription opioid used to treat chronic pain, and comes in the form of patches which are worn on the skin. It is becoming an experimental drug of choice for many youth in the area, but unlike drugs like marijuana and alcohol, it is highly addictive even after just one use. This has left otherwise good kids hooked on the patch and committing crimes to feed their habit. “It can happen to any kid,” said Beverly Clark, a former Manotick resident whose son was one of several students kicked out of St. Mark Catholic High School because of his fentanyl addiction. “They don’t have to be bad kids.” Last August, the problem became painfully apparent when Tyler Campbell, a 17-

It currently operates from the Royal on Carling Avenue near Merivale Road, but the hospital has partnered with other hospitals, community health services, mental health and addiction agencies and primary care physicians across the region to make sure youth can continue to access counselling, treatment and support in their own community after the initial three-week detox program is complete. “The idea is we all share the care of the patient to offer the full spectrum of what can be provided to them,” said Dr. Kim Corace, who worked with Willows to develop the program. The program is unique, Corace said, because it focuses on “concurrent treatment” of the addiction as well as any mental health issues the patient might have. There is a high correlation between substance abuse and mental health issues, she said; between 40 and 70 per cent of all substance abusers suffer from a mental health issue, usually an anxiety or mood disorder like depression. Corace said the key to successfully kicking substance abuse is addressing the problems that contributed to it. “If you don’t address the underlying issues that come with the addiction, there’s more risk of a relapse because those reasons that led you to the addiction in the first place

Councillor Egli to replace veteran Wilkinson on committee

City clears final Lansdowne legal hurdle

Power roles for elected officials shuffled during governance review Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC - Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli will become the second first-term councillor to lead a standing committee. Egli is set to take the lead on transportation issues after Mayor Jim Watson indicated his preferences to shuffle councillors’ responsibilities in a Jan. 29 memo to council – the result of a mid-term governance review. Egli will replace Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who has served as transportation committee chairwoman for the first two years of council’s term. “I think it’s a good fit at the end of the day for everybody,” Egli said. Egli said it will be a big year for transportation issues because the city is updating its transportation master plan. His view is that the city needs to accommodate the needs of all road users. While providing access to transit and cycling facilities is important, there will always be areas of the city where a private vehicle is required in order to get around, he said. Egli likened the shuffle to a chess board. Since there is a need for Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches to take on a heavier workload as deputy mayor (and as a father to new twins), his position as chairman of the Ottawa Community Housing board was up for grabs. Watson suggested it might be a good fit for Wilkinson, who has worked

extensively on community housing issues in the past. That also freed up the transportation committee chair, giving another rookie councillor a chance to take on a leadership role. “It’s a bit of succession planning for the next term of council,” Wilkinson said. “(The mayor) wanted an opportunity for the newer councillors to be more involved.” The veteran councillor didn’t request to step down from her role as transportation committee chairwoman, which has seen her become very active in transportation initiatives such as the recently completed Downtown Moves study. She agreed to vacate the position, but only if she could remain a member of the committee. Despite suggesting in the past that this would be her last term on council, Wilkinson said she’s still considering whether to run again in 2014. Her fellow Kanata councillor, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, will step into the role of vice chairman of the transportation committee, a position previously held by Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. Monette will instead sit as a “councillor at large” on the finance and economic development committee, which includes all committee chairs as well as Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor was the only first-time councillor appointed as a committee chairman at the beginning of council’s term and he will continue as chairman of the community and protective services committee. Egli will no longer sit on the environment com-

mittee, but he is adding the board of health to his roster. He and Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri will replace Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder and River Coun. Maria McRae on that board. Another first-term councillor, Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney was added to two committees: community and protective services (replacing Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs) and the planning committee (replacing Taylor). Hobbs will move to the transit commission, where she will boost its urban representation; previously, the only non-suburban and non-rural councillor on the commission was Tierney. The governance report also suggests the city should hire a temporary full-time worker to manage the schedules of the two deputy mayors: Desroches and West-Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. The report also recommends a review or change to governance models for some of the arm’s-lengths bodies the city oversees, including the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, the Nepean Museum and Fairfields historic site, the Ottawa Municipal Campground and Pine View Municipal Golf Course. It also proposes increasing the salaries of councillors and the mayor, which have been frozen since 2010. The clerk’s office didn’t directly consult council members on the process because council members said they were uncomfortable with setting their own salaries, so the clerk’s office is recommending the same annual cost-of-living adjustments that city managers receive.

EMC news - Construction at Lansdowne Park can continue with a clear conscience after the Supreme Court dismissed the final legal challenge against the development. Construction began this fall, before the court had issued its final ruling on whether it would hear an appeal from John Martin’s Lansdowne Park Conservancy. Last September, city solicitor Rick O’Connor said would be “exceedingly difficult” for Martin to be successful in request to be heard by the Supreme Court. The conservancy was arguing that the courts should reject the city’s contract with a private company, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, to redevelop the Glebe site on the grounds that it was a sole-sourced deal. Martin’s group had proposed an alternate vision for the site that focused to retaining it as a park and public space, whereas the current plan includes a great deal of retail and commercial development. He wanted the city to run a competitive bid for the redevelopment contract. The conservancy’s legal case was dismissed by the Ontario Court of Appeal on Aug. 28 of last year and Martin applied to the Supreme Court to ask if it would hear his case. The legal challenge had previously been rejected by three divisional court judges last April. In an email sent out late in the afternoon on Jan. 10, Martin called the result “an incredible opportunity lost.” Martin laid the blame for what he calls a lack of competitive process on Mayor Jim Watson and the city’s administration, not the courts. “This chapter is closed and it is hoped others will stand up for responsible local government,” Martin wrote. Watson wrote in a statement that the city will work “aggressively” to recover legal costs from the conservancy. The conservancy has already been ordered to pay the city $11,000 in legal costs from previous court decisions. “I want to say again that every citizen has a right to challenge the city’s decisions in court. But that right should not be taken lightly,” Watson wrote. The Conservancy case is the second legal challenge to the project to be rejected by the courts. The Friends of Lansdowne spent $600,000 taking their fight to a three-judge panel at the Ontario Superior Court. On April 30, 2012, the panel agreed that the city’s partnership with the OSEG doesn’t constitute an illegal subsidy for a private business, rejecting the Friends of Lansdowne’s legal appeal of the project. The Friends announced on June 14 that they would not take their case to the Supreme Court.

UP TO

Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartache, When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent are the tears that fall, Living our lives without you, is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was so kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts, You will walk with us forever.

You were a gift sent straight from Heaven, Given to us from God above. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much you would teach us, About the meaning of true love... For true love sometimes means letting go, of someone precious and dear. That is what we were forced to do... Although we wanted to keep you here!!! However, this is quite a selfish wish, One we know we should ignore... But we truly do believe That God must have needed you more... Perhaps to be an Angel now, Full of wisdom and love, From the shining stars above. We miss you more than you can know. you will never be replaced... In our hearts and memories forever, Will be your sweet and innocent sleeping face.

Bust a Move changes celebrity guest, gears up for annual event Michelle Nash

EMC news - Celebrity guest Jenny McCarthy has been booted from this year’s Ottawa Cancer Foundation Bust a Move event. The foundation launched Bust a Move, an event to raise money and awareness for breast cancer on Jan. 29 with the naming of McCarthy as the fundraiser’s fitness ambassador. Bust a Move chairwoman, Bernice Rachkowski said the comedienne was originally chosen because of her fun attitude. “We wanted someone who would get involved and have fun,” she said. “This event is about everyone coming out and having fun.” A Hollywood celebrity and author, McCarthy is well-known for writing and speaking out about her ideas concerning healthy living, including making controversial statements about possible links between infant vaccines and autism. She also claims to have healed her son from the disorder. The foundation announced it was replacing McCarthy as guest speaker on Feb. 1, Ottawa Cancer Foundation president Linda Eagen said the controversy surrounding the celebrity was drawing attention away from breast cancer awareness and fundraising. “We did get questions from a number of different sources, not just in Ottawa, she (McCarthy) has a strong focus on fitness, but she also has strong opinions in other areas, all the attention was going towards her opinions rather than the focus on the fundraiser and the fitness event,” Eagen said.

In McCarthy’s place, Canadian fitness coach Tommy Europe will be leading the fundraising event on March 2. “We are proud to work very closely with our partners in the medical community and the general public to raise funds and awareness for cancer care in our community, said president of the foundation,” Eagen said. “As always, our objective and responsibility is to the cancer survivors in our community and keeping the spotlight on our cause.” Collaborating with the St. Laurent Centre, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation will host a one-day fitness event called Bust a Move at the Ottawa Athletic Club. In 2012, the foundation raised $350,000 for the cause. There are six different fitness sessions at the fundraising event including zumba and yoga, a great Canadian “kitchen party,” boxing and urban dance. Rachkowski has promised the event is aimed at getting people moving. Each participant must raise a minimum of $1,000 to attend and the day is geared to be fun for all fitness levels. “We know that this year’s event will continue our tradition of fundraising successes that will help thousands of local cancer patients and their families.” Eagan said in a press release. For more information about the event, visit ottawacancer. ca or contact the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation at 613-247-3527. All the proceeds raised at the event are invested in the community to help improve regional cancer services.

Trillium funding to help agency co-ordinate programming Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - A grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation will help to provide programming for single parents, at-risk youth and seniors. The $122,000 grant was presented to the Social Planning Council of Ottawa and Jewish Family Services at the family services office on Carling Avenue on Jan. 15. The monies will be provided over two years to help with mentoring and support to Ottawa Somaliland community services, Canada Nepal Solidarity for Peace, Cooperation Integration Canada, La Coopérative Enseignants Pas à Pas and the Shia Moslem community. The grant will also provide seed funding to implement new programs for at-risk youth and single parents in Ottawa. Jewish Family Services director Mark Zarecki said the two larger agencies could provide support in the setting up of boards and volunteer management. “This is a great chance for us to work with smaller agencies in a way we haven’t been able to before,” Zarecki said adding that another Trillium grant has helped increase revenues from their counselling services, allowing them to provide better services to low-income clients that can’t pay the fees. “Any time we get Trillium funding it helps us to attain program goals,” he said. Bob Chiarelli, the MPP for Ottawa WestNepean made the announcement and said the organizations working in Ottawa’s communities are the glue that holds the city together. “I am pleased that with the help of this funding, our community partners will be able to enhance their services and continue to offer high quality programs for families in Ottawa,” he said. Sherry Franklin, a representative of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, said the foundation gives out $120 million annually to projects that make better and more vibrant communities. Howard Cohen, from the Social Planning Council of Ottawa said the money will help new immigrants and teachers. “I hope the partnership continues and we make a better city,” he said.

The Ottawa Cancer Foundation made a shift in its celebrity guest for this year’s Bust a Move event, pulling celebrity Jenny McCarthy from the program. The foundation said it was because focus surrounding the event had shifted away from breast cancer awareness and fundraising. MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND
