EMC News – A 15-yearold boy died in hospital early Monday, after collapsing at a hockey game in Carp the night before. On Sunday (Feb. 5) evening around 6:20 p.m., Ottawa Police, Ottawa Fire and Ottawa Paramedics were called to the W. Erskine Johnson Arena in Carp where a 15-year-old male was unconscious. The Richmond teen, Tyler Kerr, was a member of the Richmond Midget B and had been playing hockey at the time of the incident. He is alleged to have come off the ice after his shift and collapsed on the players’ bench. According to Ottawa Police, a coach of the hockey team began administering CPR and the portable defibrillator was also used. Firefighters and paramedics responded to the 911 call and immediately attempted to resuscitate the youth. Police report the teen was transported to CHEO where he was in intensive care. However, at 3:15 a.m. Monday morning, police issued a short statement regarding the teen’s condition. “It is with sadness we report that the youth has been pronounced deceased,� the statement read. While Ottawa Police did not officially release Kerr’s name, condolences poured into social media sites like Facebook from friends and schoolmates at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville.

There was plenty of winter fun to be had during last weekend’s Kinburn Winter Carnival. A number of outdoor and indoor activities were organized by the Kinburn Community Association, including this fun hockey game between the firefighters and a team of local residents on the outdoor rink. Dropping the puck for the game were Kinburn Community Association president Jayne Coady and West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. Taking the faceoff for their respective teams were Brent Carruthers (right) and Kyle Campbell.

Green bins now on Rideau Canal EMC News - The Rideau Canal Skateway now has green bins available for people to dispose of their organic waste. The bins will be located near the snack shacks and rest areas along the entire 8.8-kilometre skateway. Skaters can put food scraps, wooden popsicle sticks, napkins and paper cups into the green bins to reduce the amount of trash that goes to the landfill. PARTNERSHIP The initiative is a partnership between the City of Ottawa, which runs the green bin program, and the National Capital Commission,

which operates the Rideau Canal Skateway. “This initiative reflects the appreciation our community has for its natural environment and how it values our waste diversion efforts,” Mayor Jim Watson said in a statement. It’s the next step in creating partnerships to expand green-bin use, said River Coun. Maria McRae, who heads the city’s environment committee. The city has worked with schools, shelters and it’s own recreational facilities to ensure green bins are available throughout the city – not just in homes.

EMC Sports – It’s the time of year again to support local minor hockey and watch some exciting Ontario Hockey League (OHL) players in action. The annual West Carleton Day with the Ottawa 67’s takes place Sunday, Feb. 19 when the Ottawa 67’s face off against the Erie Otters at 2 p.m. The puck drops at 2 p.m. at the Ottawa Civic Centre. The 67’s are currently riding the top of the leader board in the east division while the Otters are in fifth place in the midwest division. The annual event is once again being organized by Brett Hamilton, a resident of MacLaren’s Landing and an account manager with the Ottawa 67’s hockey club. A part of all tickets sales will go towards West Carleton Minor Hockey Association to help youngsters who cannot afford to play hockey or need equipment. Hamilton originally started the event because he wanted to give something back to his community and support minor hockey. And the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association

Kenwood Corporate Centre, 160 William St. W, Suite 120, Arnprior doesn’t take the gesture lightly. “Every year with the cost of hockey rising, we find ourselves waiving more and more registration fees,” explained WCMHA president Sherry Malloy, adding the operational cost of ice adds to the financial burden. “I cannot stress enough how much every little bit helps.” All children who come out to the game are encouraged to wear the hockey jerseys and show their team pride while having some fun supporting the 67’s. “This is our 6th season partnering with the 67s and this allows us to host a fun hockey event while raising funds and

encouraging sportsman like behaviour with our lowest penalty minutes contest. We host a contest each year and the team with the lowest penalty minutes per level receives 20 tickets to the game,” Malloy noted. Winners this year include: Novice B2 head coach Todd Storms, Atom B3 head coach Daryl Doxsee, Peewee C head coach Paul Shouldice, Bantam B2 head coach Rob Graham and Midget B1 head coach Jeff Wall.

Serve your sweetheart the sweet herb on Valentine’s Day

EMC Lifestyle - If you’d like to make a special dinner for Valentine’s Day, serve this basil-flavoured chicken and seafood dish. Known as the sweet herb, basil is all too often combined with other stronger-tasting herbs. Using basil on its own, however, lets its natural sweet flavour come through. This dish is a colourful mixture of chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, onion and red pepper served in a basil-flavoured white sauce. It’s excellent spooned over pasta such as linguine. It takes about half an hour to prepare this meal. If you start cooking the pasta before

starting the sauce, everything should be cooked at the same time. You’ll need one large frying pan and one smaller one. Each ingredient is cooked separately in the large pan, then transferred to the second pan and kept warm. When you’re shopping for this recipe, look for the small frozen shrimp that are already cooked and peeled. They are nicer in this dish than the large shrimp. Look for fresh shredded Parmesan cheese in the deli section of the supermarket. I like it because it’s more convenient and moister than grating a large chunk of Parmesan

cheese. Valentine’s Day Special 2 tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, sliced in strips 225 gm package of white button mushrooms, sliced (about 12) 1/2 medium onion, sliced

in thin strips 1/2 sweet red bell pepper, cut into thin strips 1 1/2 cups milk 1 envelope chicken bouillon powder 2 tbsp. cornstarch 1 cup frozen small, cooked, peeled shrimp, thawed under cold water 1 tsp. dried basil

1/4 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese Once you have the chicken and vegetables sliced, start cooking the pasta. You won’t need a lot because the recipe for the sauce makes two large servings. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken strips, and brown them on each side. When there is no pink left in the chicken, transfer it to a smaller frying pan set on very low heat. Add the sliced mushrooms to the large pan, and cook them until lightly browned. Transfer them to the same pan as the chicken. Add the sliced onion and

sweet red pepper to the large pan, and cook until crisp-tender. Transfer them to the same pan as the chicken. In a measuring cup, stir the milk, chicken bouillon powder, cornstarch and basil together until the cornstarch is dissolved. Pour this into the large frying pan, and cook, stirring continuously, on medium heat, until slightly thickened. Spoon the cooked chicken and vegetables into the sauce. Add the shrimp, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp are heated through. This serves 2, but it can also serve four if you cook a larger amount of pasta.

Collective action needed for good of our game


t’s no accident hockey is our national sport. Over the past century the game has become ingrained in our collective psyche — well before the introduction of television brought National Hockey League matches into the living rooms of the nations. Canadian weather has a lot to do with our enthusiasm for the sport. Cold winter fields covered by a sheet of snow and ice aren’t exactly ideal for rugby,

football, soccer and other sports popular in warmer climates. Enter the outdoor ice rink. The City of Ottawa, for instance, has 247 of them to meet the clamouring demand from school children looking to play a game of shinny and parents who want to enjoy some time skating with their tots. Every winter you see the hordes of children gathered at the outdoor rinks or suited up in pads, jersies and helmets,

playing organized games in arenas. And every year parents dig deep in their wallets to pay the ever-increasing cost to outfit their kids and pay registration fees to play organized hockey. Canadians have a hunger for hockey, but municipalities are finding it increasingly more difficult to meet that need. Every year, hundreds of hockey teams in Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley jockey for limited ice time in the region’s

arenas. And every year the demand only increases. But the cost of building new arenas to provide ice time can be prohibitive and municipalities have a big wish list for infrastructure improvements — the hundreds of millions needed to replace Ottawa’s antiquated water pipes spring to mind — which means, we must come up with creative solutions to meet this burgeoning demand. One idea is to find more

effective ways to schedule ice time. Cities should provide more scheduling options for teams such as the Capital City Condors, a team that caters to children with developmental disabilities, who because of their medical needs require more flexible ice times. Another idea worth exploring is encouraging more so-called “P3 partnerships,” partnering with businesses to share the costs of building new arenas.

We’ve already seen creative solutions from individuals and associations within the community. Think of the hundreds of volunteers who donate their time to maintain the region’s outdoor ice rinks — at no cost to the city. These are people who saw a need, and stepped up to volunteer their time. Hockey. It’s our game. It’s our collective responsibility to keep it that way.


Where did all that open space go? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


anadians really like open space, as someone recently wrote. Actually that was I, writing about the problems with intensification. We’re used to having lots of it, because that’s the kind of country this is, with lakes and prairies and uninhabited forests, and we don’t like it when someone crowds us, whether in the supermarket, on the beach or on the Queensway. There’s another thing about open space, though. With the notable exception of LeBreton Flats, we seem to have a compulsion to fill it. Give us a nice open space and we’ll begin working on cluttering it up. Anyone who has worked in an office knows this. Back in the day – maybe the ’70s – the open office concept was a fad. Many beautiful open offices were created, in government departments and private business. And almost from the moment people moved in, they began nullifying that space. Plants and bookcases appeared, then higher desks, then partitions, then full offices. Eventually the modern office became the rabbit warren we see now. The same thing happened to shopping centres. Some had a nice airiness to them at one point, skylights and wide aisles. Not any more. Kiosks of all sorts block the view. Tables and benches, while welcomed by many weary shoppers, clog the aisles. And don’t even think about open space in the supermarket. While you’re thinking about it, you’ll be knocking over a big mound of merchandise that wasn’t there a minute ago. Another dramatic example is what we still think of as the new Ottawa airport. Actually, the new airport before that was another

dramatic example. If you remember that one, there was at first a nice clear view across the main lobby to a huge window, outside of which were the airplanes. Nice – just the way an airport should look, with the sky and the planes on display. Then some kiosks arrived, then a bar. All of a sudden the window disappeared and all of that space. You could have been at the mall, for all that it resembled an airport. It must be human nature. Nature abhors a vacuum, someone once said. An old Latin proverb, apparently. But commerce abhors a vacuum too. If you visit the new airport at the arrivals level, you see that advertising signs on stands are all over the place. TV screens glare at you from every direction. There are signs on top of the luggage carousels. There are machines of various types, ATMs, terminals for looking at pictures of hotels. There are kiosks, a chair that gives you a massage. Aside from the chair that gives you a massage there actually aren’t that many places to sit, but may be the price we pay for the open space that remains. There is a bench near the escalator, but it turns out to be a statue of a bench. Cartier, after whom the airport is halfnamed, is standing behind it. Sir John A., after whom the other half is named, is sitting on it, all bronze-like. There must be many a weary traveller who wishes Sir John A. would stand the hell up so someone could take his seat. It’s actually quite a spectacular area. The escalator coming down in full view is a nice touch, so that the people arriving get a good chance, as they descend, to wave at the people meeting them. Also, the fountain, a curtain of water falling over the word “OTTAWA” is soothing to look at. So all is not lost yet. We just have to resist the temptation to cover every inch of floor space with something that might amuse someone, or convince him to buy something. We have to come to terms with our conflicting attitudes toward open space: we want it, and when we get it we want to fill it up. The thing with open space is, you can’t get it back.

LETTER Piracy and copyright issues do go much deeper than column indicates DEAR EDITOR: Charles Gordon has a real concern shared by many of us: online piracy and copyright infringement, its impact on artists and, by extension, on us and our society. However, in his column “Everything for nothing on the web?” (Feb. 2), Mr. Gordon unfortunately misrepresents many of those involved with this issue. He particularly misrepresents the intent of those who have relevant, real concerns

about two current US bills on piracy and infringement (SOPA and PIPA), painting them as either condoning piracy and/or opposing regulation of piracy. This is the opposite of the truth. Although they have real concerns with those two particular bills, they are still in favour of preventing piracy and copyright infringement. What are their concerns? In brief, they are convinced that these bills, in their current form, could make inno-

cent bystanders legally liable for online piracy undertaken without their knowledge by someone else. As well, these bills’ provisions would cripple large numbers of legitimate businesses and existing government initiatives aimed at helping others, and create fear and chaos in legitimate internet interests. (See

This is patently unfair and signals that the authors of the bills did not write sufficiently-precise, cogent legislation that targets just piracy and infringement, while still protecting legitimate activity. Mr. Gordon, before publishing his column, should have taken the time to do his research so that he could have written about his (and our) concern in a manner that does justice to it, and particularly without misrepresenting those who are just as concerned

about addressing it properly and fairly.

‘I like the fascinating shrike’ one of best poems Scientific name of the Northern Shrike Lanius excubitor means butcher watchman EMC Lifestyle - Years ago I read a book filled with little poems about birds. One of my favourites went more or less like this: “I like the Shrike because with a thorn for a guillotine, it does its work so neat and clean. A practical bird whose common sense must be immense for tell me who has ever heard of such a thing as a Loggerhead Shrike that tried to sing.” There are two interesting facts about shrikes revealed in the ditty. One is that it uses thorns to hold its prey. The other is that shrikes are not good singers. Two species of shrikes can be found in our region. Loggerhead Shrikes,

the subject of the poem in that forgotten book, are found here only in summer. When I was young, they were reasonably common. I can recall walking from Arnprior along the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks across the Madawaska River trestle to what was then McEwen’s Creek (now under 75 feet of water) and finding no fewer than four active shrike nests all full of babies! Today only one nest is known in all of the Ottawa Valley. Their decline is not fully understood but likely development of their nesting habitat and increased vehicular are key factors. The other shrike is the

Northern Shrike, which only nests in Ontario in the northern muskeg. They appear in our area only in late fall and winter. There have been a number of Northerns around this winter, and I was fortunate to see three on Sunday. Both species of shrikes are similar in that they like to perch atop a shrub or small tree for a good view of the area in which they hunt. They are robin-sized (Northerns are a bit larger than Loggerheads) and sport a black mask. The bill is large and is hooked at the tip, more so in the Northern. Their feet are more like those of a song-

feet to catch and carry birds. One of the shrikes I saw recently was carrying a bird in that fashion. Shrikes are fascinating birds. The scientific name of the Northern Shrike says it all: Lanius excubitor means “butcher watchman.” I truly like the shrike! On February 28 I am doing a special presentation for the Innis Point Bird Observatory’s annual dinner/fundraiser.

bird than of a bird of prey, and the hefty bill is their killing tool. On it lies a special cutting notch, the tomial tooth, that is used to sever the neck vertebrae of the victim. Despite what the poem suggests, shrikes do not cut the heads off their prey on a thorn. Rather, they impale their prey to hold it while they eat it, or to store it for later consumption. If hunting is good, a larder of stored food results. It is rather unnerving to walk through an old field with scattered hawthorns and find dozens of small carcasses hanging from the thorns. Shrikes will carry small prey in the bills but use their

Events in Canada set to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee milestone By JESSICA CUNHA

The same day, the organization also released as the first of six mini-panes of four stamps – one for each 10-year period – as part of a keepsake folder. More will be issued throughout the first six months of 2012. Events celebrating her 60-year reign will continue throughout the year. London, England will mark the anniversary of her coronation in June.

ROYAL TOURS The queen has toured Canada a total of 22 times since her coronation, the most recent being in 2010. “The Queen has been with us in celebration of who and what we are as a proud confident people,� said Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “The Queen has dedicated her entire life to the service of others and has always held this country and all Canadians in the deepest of pride

and affection.� The queen was present for such national events as the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway, Expo ’67, the Montreal Summer Olympics in 1976, the Bicentennial of Ontario, the 125th anniversary of Confederation and the 100th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Navy. The federal government launched a photographic display highlighting the queen’s visits to Canada during her six-decade reign on Feb, 6 at the Library of Parliament. “Through six decades of social change, technological revolution and economic transformation, Her Majesty has shown an extraordinary generosity of spirit,� said Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty. The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit the province in May to celebrate the queen’s Diamond Jubilee. “It will be the highlight of Ontario’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations,� said McGuinty.

EMC News - Sixty years ago this week, Queen Elizabeth II took to the throne for the very first time after her father, King George VI passed away. Celebrations began on Monday, Feb. 6, to celebrate the queen’s Diamond Jubilee, a feat accomplished only once before when Queen Victoria reigned for 63 years and seven months. “In this special year, as I dedicate myself anew to your service, I hope we will all be reminded of the power of togetherness and the convening strength of family, friendship and good neighbourliness, examples of which I have been fortunate to see throughout my reign,� wrote the queen in an open letter. “I hope also that this Jubilee year will be a time to give thanks for the great advances that have been made since 1952 and to look forward to the future with clear head and warm heart as we join together in our celebrations.� Canada Post released the official Diamond Jubilee stamp on Jan. 16.

Celebrating Canada’s Game


ockey. It’s our game. Every winter, children across the Upper Ottawa Valley gather at frozen ponds to play a little pick-up shinny or at outdoor rinks for

organized games. Parents are regular visitors at the rinks – you can usually spot them huddled on the benches early in the morning, clutching a steaming cup of coffee and cheering on

their son and daughter until their voices go hoarse. Then there are the unsung heroes, the people in our community who every week trudge out into the unforgiving cold

and maintain our outdoor skating rinks so kids and adults can enjoy a skate or a game of pick-up hockey. On Feb. 10-12, communities in the City of Ottawa and the Valley will celebrate Canada’s

national sport. This week, the West Carleton Review EMC takes a closer look at the players, the coaches, the parents and the people who volunteer so we can enjoy our favourite winter sport.

Female hockey players at home in MGHA By SHERRY HAAIMA

EMC Sports - They all share a love of the game. For some of the girls playing hockey in the Madawaska Girls Hockey Association in the Upper Ottawa Valley, it’s a stepping stone to further hockey accomplishments. For others, it’s a more comfortable and safe alternative to playing in the boy’s league, and for others still it’s a great way to stay active and spend time with friends. And what happens when the girls lace up their skates and hit the ice is quite something, say MGHA organizers. “It’s really great to see these girls getting to play,” says assistant coach John Poirier, who says ice time with the boys might have been hard to come by. The opportunity to play with the MGHA has allowed the players to hone their skills. “What you see is a lot of finesse play,” says Poirier. The MGHA was born in 2003

“It’s just a great experience to learn skills from the other girls. I love working on a team and building on what I already know.” KAILEY HOOK, MADAWASKA GIRLS HOCKEY

when several parents decided to start up a non-body-contact league for girls. The team consisted of girls aged 13-18 from Arnprior and Renfrew and surrounding areas and for the first year the team just practiced and played exhibition games. Assistant coach With just two teams, association status was granted the following season by the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association. Midget and bantam level teams played in the Upper Ottawa Valley organization. Over the next couple of years the organization grew to include teams at the peewee, bantam and midget levels. Home ice for the girls is the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior and Ma-teway Activity Centre in Renfrew. Several members of the Madawaska midget team recently sat down to talk about what hockey and their ex-

perience on the team means to them. Kailey Hook has been playing hockey for 14 years and has all kinds of experience – having played boys, varsity high school and girls hockey – at one time a member of three teams. She hopes to play hockey at the post secondary level and possibly beyond and says she is grateful for all she’s learned from her peers on the team. “It’s just a great experience to learn skills from the other girls. I love working on a team and building on what I already know,” says Kailey. Meggan Poirier grew up playing hockey on the outdoor rink in Fitzroy Harbour and says while she had fun playing a “rougher” game with the boys, she really enjoys the camaraderie and team spirit she’s experienced with the Madawaska team. “With the boys I learned to keep my head up,” says Meggan. “The girls play more as a team.” Sarah Dick switched from figure skating to hockey two years ago, a transition at which she’s excelled, say team managers and mates. “I figure skated for 12 years and needed a change,” says Sarah. “And I’ve made a lot of good friends on the team.” Rachel Glofcheskie played hockey for years but took up the goalie position when she joined the girls team. An integral part of the team, Rachel’s enjoying the role and has earned the support of her peers. “She rocks!” says a teammate, and the rest of the group echo the sentiment. The increased profile of women’s hockey is helping grow the sport and raise awareness, say the girls. Janessa Russett has kept a close eye on two-time Canadian Olympic gold medallist Cassie Campbell and other female hockey players over the years. She realized a dream several years ago when she met and got Campbell’s autograph. “I’ve watched her growing up,” says Janessa. Justine Rouleau says she watched her brother play hockey for years before she finally decided to give it a try herself. She has found her perfect activity in hockey – the once a week practices and games and time spent with her teammates is cherished. “I have fun doing it,” she says.

A personal rink of dreams Former Sens player builds backyard ice surface for his sons By JESSICA CUNHA

tired from professional hockey to be closer to his family in 2010. “They still need a little prodding or they need daddy to be out there with them.”

EMC Sports - After a week of poor weather, the hockey rink in Shean Donovan’s backyard was in need of some TLC. A layer of freshly fallen snow, overtop a sheet of ice coated the rink’s surface at his family home in Carp. The former Ottawa Senators forward grabbed his worn work boots, a winter coat, gloves and a blue plastic shovel and set out to put the rink to rights. “Now I have no choice,” said the father of three young children and husband to wife Teresa. “I’ll have to finish this.” Donovan cleared the snow and chipped away at the extra ice that had frozen over the rinks surface. That night, he and his two sons, Jorian, 7, and Rylan, 6, spent an hour and a half playing shinny. Daughter Trinity, 1, hasn’t quite laced up her skates just yet. “It was great,” he said about hitting the ice with his sons. “It’s something I do that I enjoy and the kids are starting to like it more and more.” Donovan, who was drafted to the NHL in 1993 by the San Jose Sharks, first caught the hockey bug tagging along with his father to the outdoor rink near their home in Connaught, Ont., where he was born. The former professional hockey player learned to love the sport on the communitybuilt and maintained rink, which was located behind the only church in town. “It was just a little town,

FAMILY MAN Since retiring from professional hockey, Donovan volunteers with both Jorian and Rylan’s hockey teams as the assistant coach. “I love it,” he said. “I just like hanging out with the kids.” He also co-runs a summertraining program in Carleton Place and Beckwith, coaches other young hockey players on their skating, works as an on-air personality for the Team 1200 sports radio station and attends various tournaments and charity benefits. This year, he is the honourary chair for the Fred Page Cup, which is being hosted by the Kanata Stallions, a team he used to play for when they were known as the Kanata Valley Lasers. “It’s good, it keeps me busy and out of trouble,” said Donovan. But he always makes time for his children. The two Donovan boys had a chance to check out the NHL All Star Game with their dad last month. “They thought it was great,” said Donovan, adding they’re starting to recognize various players’ names, which makes it more exciting for them. Donovan said he’s happy his sons are enjoying the game that he loves to play. “Hockey is all over the place,” he said. “The biggest thing is to have fun.”

West Carleton teams to get into spirit of Hockey Day in Canada By THERESA FRITZ

EMC Sports – West Carleton hockey teams won’t be letting Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada go by unnoticed, as several will be taking to the ice this Saturday. Feb. 11 marks the 12th year for this event, which sees all seven Canadian National Hockey League (NHL) teams hitting the ice and CBC devoting more than 10 hours of television coverage to the special day. Summerside, P.E.I, is the host community for this year’s event.

According to West Carleton Minor Hockey Association president Sherry Malloy, several teams are scheduled to play in West Carleton during the day, singling three of particular interest. GAMES OF NOTE “We have Novice A playing at 9 a.m. in Kinburn (Sensplex). The team has a 15-0-0 record and boasts one of Ottawa’s best top talents - Billy Gourgon,” Malloy stated. “We have a West Carleton versus West Carleton C game at the Peewee B level at 2 p.m. (at

W. Erksine Johnston Arena in Carp). It’s always exciting when it’s our two local teams” And finally, the Midget B1 squad plays at 9 p.m. in Carp. This team is currently in first place in the league. As for the NHL hockey action, games will be broadcast on CBC and live streamed on Edmonton visits Ottawa (2 p.m. ET), Winnipeg is at Pittsburgh (2 p.m. ET), Montreal is at Toronto (7 p.m. ET), and Vancouver visits Calgary (10 p.m. ET).


Outdoor rinks are what hockey is all about and West Carleton is fortunate to not only have many outdoor rinks but also an outdoor hockey league as well. The outdoor rink in Kinburn was a hot spot of hockey action last Saturday during the Kinburn Winter Carnival as a team of firefighters took on a local team under sunny skies.

Greening spreads ‘Power To The Purple’ message By Rob Brodie As a seventh-round draft pick, Colin Greening has overcome many challenges on the road to living his National Hockey League dream. Now the Ottawa Senators rookie forward is lending his name to dealing with an even more important obstacle. The 25-year-old Newfoundland native is this year’s “champion” of the Power To The Purple Challenge, an initiative being launched by Do It For Daron, a youth-driven program focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health. Giant Tiger is the presenting sponsor for the Purple Challenge. D.I.F.D. was created by the friends and family of Daron Richardson, the 14-year-old daughter of Senators assistant coach Luke Richardson, who took her own life in November 2010. It’s primary goal is to transform the stigma that has long been associated with mental health issues. “I think it’s a really great cause,” said Greening, who was approached by the Richardson and his wife, Stephanie, about taking on the ambassador role. “For people who don’t know a lot about D.I.F.D. and youth mental health, it’s a very sensitive subject. One of the big reasons why I got involved is because I, like many people in society, don’t really know how to talk about it. “We’ve all been affected by it in some way or another, but I think learning about it is the best

Greening believes youth today face more pressures than ever, in great part because of the growing prevalance of social media as a forum for communication. “With the way youth are growing up ... I feel like there’s a lot more pressure on kids these days,” he said. “Everyone wants to be that much prettier or better and things like that. But someone can blog about anything or write anything on Facebook that can affect someone’s self-esteem. Kids these days have it harder than a lot of us when we were growing up, because we didn’t really have the Internet and social media.

When Luke and Stephanie asked me to get involved, I was more than happy to do so.” The Power To The Purple Challenge runs throughout the month of February, with schools, corporations and individuals within the community encouraged to hold conversations and raise funds to aid youth mental health research, education and suicide prevention. Next Tuesday, students in Ottawa-area schools are being encouraged to wear purple to help raise awareness about the issue. “D.I.F.D. and the Power To The Purple’s biggest message is

about youth mental health,” said Greening. “They want to make sure that everyone understands that there’s always an avenue open for you. A lot of people feel like ‘is this just me?’ But it’s not just you and the most important thing is, you have to find someone you trust and that you can talk to. “A lot of people who are depressed feel like they have no way out, but D.I.F.D. is really trying to promote the message that yes, there are avenues you can pursue and there’s always something that you can do and someone you can talk to.”

In 2009, the Sens Foundation made a $100,000 pledge to the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health to support its early idendification and intervention

program for youth. For more information about D.I.F.D. or the Power To The Purple Challenge, log on to www.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS Thursday, Feb. 9, Sportsnet East With a typically balanced attack, the Predators entered the NHL all-star break as the league’s hottest team and are right in the thick of the Western Conference playoff chase. Up front, Nashville turns to Martin Erat, David Legwand and former Senators fan favourite Mike Fisher to generate goals. Rookie Craig Smith has been an early-season offensive surprise and earned himself an all-star weekend invite. Few

teams are blessed with a much blue-line talent as Nashville, a group led by all-star Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. In goal, the Predators rely heavily on Pekka Rinne, one of the NHL’s top stoppers.

EDMONTON OILERS Saturday, Feb. 11, CBC The young Oilers again find themselves on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture, but with a lot of hope for the future. While Calder Trophy favourite Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been sidelined because of injury of late, Edmonton can still show off Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall, two other key members of its youth movement. Sam Gagner erupted for an eight-point game in a victory over Chicago last week, while Ryan Smyth

provides veteran leadership up front. Ryan Whitney and Cam Barker are key cogs on the blue line. Sharing the goaltending duties are Nikolai Khabibulin and Devan Dubnyk.

EMC Lifestyle – If you want to catch up with Robert Moore, you better be prepared to move. The lifelong Carp resident drives himself to bridge games in the area five days a week, takes his fellow residents at The West Carleton retirement residence shopping, loves to cook himself a good meal and watch his favourite soap opera – The Young and The Restless. And then there is the pure joy of enjoying time with his family and the simple pleasure of gardening at the family cottage. While this hectic schedule might seem daunting to many, consider the fact that Moore has got a few years under his belt. In fact, this incredible senior citizen will be turning 95 Feb. 28. “I’m lucky,” he says, when asked what the secret to his longevity is. “I am enjoying life and living it to the fullest.” Robert W. Moore was born in Carp in 1917, the son of George W. Moore and Louise (nee Tripp). He was one of nine children born to the couple. His father was an educator, trapper, fisherman and businessman in the community. George W. Moore was the first principal of three-room Carp school that opened in 1905. “I have lived in Carp all my life. I was born here,” Robert Moore says. And he has contributed to the community in so many ways. In 1941, he took over ownership of the general store in the village which became the IGA and had that store until the 1970s. “When they (military) turned me down for the Forces, then the business came up,” he recalls. “I opened up the IGA that is now Faith’s Foodliner…I loved talking to the people.” And evidently, people loved talking to him. It’s been said that individuals would come into the store even if they didn’t need to buy anything. They came in to say him to Moore. Moore’s son Bill recalls how there was a tunnel that linked the family home next door to the grocery story. This made it easy for the elder Moore to get to work. “He was always in there working. He really loved making the produce look nice,” Bill Moore states.

Councillors feed hungry in support of Ottawa Mission EMC News - Ottawa city councillors and Mayor Jim Watson came together to participate in the second annual “Councillors Feed the Hungry” event at The Ottawa Mission Feb. 2. Organized by Keith Egli, councillor for Ward 9 Knoxdale-Merivale, the event included a presentation of a cheque to The Ottawa Mission on behalf of 20 Ottawa city councillors and Watson,

which covered the costs of the lunch meal they helped to serve. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, was one of the councillors who took part in the initiative. “The event, now in its second year, serves as a reminder of just how many people in our city depend on organizations such as The Ottawa Mission,” said Egli. “The impact that the dedicated staff and

volunteers have on the lives of those in need in our city is truly life changing.”    In addition to providing (on average) shelter to 245 residents each night and serving an average of 1,256 meals each day, The Ottawa Mission also offers counselling, educational support, job training programs and medical and addiction treatment services. “The generosity of donors and the support of volun-

McArthur Island

teers is vital to The Ottawa Mission’s capacity to help the most vulnerable,” notes Egli, “Especially during this time of year when the frigid temperatures increase the demand for beds and other resources.” “The Ottawa Mission is an important part of our community and we are grateful to the staff and volunteers who, each year, help and support residents in need,” said Watson. “I’m also thankful to Coun. Egli for organizing this

initiative, which allows us to make a contribution and see firsthand the good work being done.” “The lunch provided today is very much appreciated by people who depend on The Mission for help,” said Ottawa Mission executive director Diane Morrison. “The Ottawa Mission is thankful for the support from Ottawa City Council as we all work to improve the quality of life for thousands of people in

the community every year.” The Ottawa Mission is a non-profit, faith-based ministry that has been meeting the needs of the hungry and poor in Ottawa since its establishment in 1906.   Founded by volunteers, today The Ottawa Mission still relies on the generous help of the community and approximately 250 individuals volunteer each and every month, averaging over 2500 volunteer hours a month.

Members of city council donned aprons and hairnets to serve a roast-beef lunch at the Ottawa Mission shelter on Feb. 2. Here, Mayor Jim Watson, West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry and Bay Coun. Mark Taylor chop vegetables before the meal. KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Egli organized the lunch for the second year to draw attention to the needs of shelter and food banks year-round – not just at the popular giving time during the holidays. Ottawa Mission executive director, Diane Morrison, said the new tradition helps bring attention at a much-needed time and it gives clients an opportunity to have face time with city councillors and the mayor: something to which they wouldn’t normally have access.

Father’s make-believe radio as good as the real thing Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

covered table, and reminded me about how the Depression hit some people harder than others. Father asked me to describe the little radio to him. I told him it was as high as Joyce’s twelve-inch ruler (we measured it), and was rounded at the top, and the sound came out of the middle of it which was covered in brown material. Father poured his tea in his saucer, blew on it, and slurped it up, a habit which annoyed Mother no end! Nothing more was said about the little radio that sat on Joyce’s dresser upstairs in her all-pink bedroom. I tried to put it out of my mind. And life went on. Many days passed, and as always in the winter, Mother stayed close to the house, and we didn’t go into Renfrew as often, relying on Briscoe’s General Store for our needs. We children slid down the West Hill on cardboard boxes, an old fend-

er from a wrecked car, and a toboggan that was so warped out of shape, it always headed in the opposite direction from which it was being steered. This was our winter fun. Farm chores were confined to the barns. Cleaning out the cow byre and stable twice a day, feeding the pigs, sweeping out the chicken coup, and generally putting in the days moving not far out of the barnyard filled the days. The little building closer to the house was simply called the drive shed. This is where the old Model T sat up on four big blocks of wood for the winter. Father’s work bench stretched across the entire front of the shed, with all his tools neatly hung on spikes above. An antique stove, so small, it looked like a toy, was kept chucked full of small pieces of wood, and took the chill off the interior, but never really brought the temperature up high enough to suit anyone

but Father. So we children, and certainly not Mother, never went near the drive shed in the winter, unless it was absolutely necessary. This was Father’s hideaway. It was his shed. And when his chores were done, he would escape into this little building, and as Mother would say, “never even came out for air” until it was time to come into the house for a meal. I remember it was the end of the week. A Friday. The snow was deep, and it was bitterly cold on our walk home from the Northcote School. We could see smoke curling out of the little stove- pipe sticking through the hole in the side wall of the drive shed. Supper was always early in the wintertime. No need to call Father. He knew when it would be on the table. That night he came in, stamping his feet on the braided rug at the door, and carrying what looked like a wood box under his arm. Without taking off his boots, (I could see Mother looking at him with a frown), he walked right over to the kitchen table and put the box in front of the place I sat to eat. It looked very much like Joyce’s little radio. It was a radio! I was close to tears. “You won’t be able to hear voices, but you can pretend. You’re good at that,” Father said with a twinkle. To this day, I can see that

little make-believe radio in my mind’s eye. It was a square of small boards which Father had varnished. The hole in the middle was covered tautly with a brown piece of cloth retrieved from the rag bag. This was where the sound would come out if it was a real radio. The knobs were three empty spools from Mother’s sewing box. All through supper, I twisted the spools, and rubbed my hands over the smooth varnished wood. My brothers knew better than to remind me I would never hear a sound from it. As soon as Audrey and I had redded up the kitchen, I moved into the parlour... cold as always...and sat on the horsehair settee, and played

with the radio. I was positive I could hear scratches coming over the airwaves ....wasn’t that Major Bowes and the Amateur Hour? And music...I could hear music..I was sure of it. I turned the spools on their long spikes, and closed my eyes, and believed with all my heart. It would have taken many hours and patience for Father to make the little make-believe radio. I was too young to fully realize the time and love he put into it in the drive shed. All I knew at the time was that by using my imagination, I could connect with cities far away and hear music and voices just like my little friend Joyce did in her pink bedroom.


EMC Lifestyle - Father was far more patient than was Mother. My sister Audrey said it was because Mother was fed up with the Depression, whereas Father figured there was nothing you could do about it anyway. You might just as well accept it, as it wasn’t showing signs of going away anytime soon. I had a hard time figuring out what the Depression had to do with Mother’s patience, but my older and much wiser sister told me it was so, and I believed every word Audrey said. And that is why the day I lamented about my little friend Joyce having far more than I did, Mother, with a snap in her voice, told me to remember some people had more than we had, and the sooner I accepted it the happier I would be. Well, that fact did little to make me happy, and that night at the supper table, I was once again comparing all the toys Joyce had with the few in my possession. I was especially envious of a little battery radio she had gotten for Christmas. “Brown. With a real voice coming out of it. And three knobs along the bottom and she just has to turn them to listen to someone talking in some city” I said in a shaky voice. Once again, Mother let out her usual big sigh, drummed her fingers on the oilcloth

Give her a lasting memory this Valentine’s Day

Arnprior dental hygienist to offer Gift from the Heart Saturday EMC Lifestyle – To honour the spirit of Valentine’s Day, on this Saturday, Feb. 11 registered dental hygienists across the province will provide oral care services to the public at no cost. For the fourth consecutive year, Gift From the Heart campaign offers a way for dental hygienists to reach out in their community and help members of the public who may be financially unable to receive oral care or have difficultly accessing dental hygiene services, Among those taking part is Patty McComb of the Rural Roots Dental Hygiene Services in Arnprior. “Because dental hygienists can work independently outside the traditional dental office, the event also helps to build awareness about the public’s right to choose their health-care provider and the importance of preventing oral disease for a healthy mouth and healthy body,” said Bev Woods, co-ordinator of the project. Last year, dental hygienists from all practice settings, including those who operate their own businesses, treated about 1,500 clients during the one-day volunteer event. “Our annual Gift From the Heart keeps growing. This year we expect to help more people so that we can truly make a difference through treatment and public education about the importance of good oral health,” says Woods. Since September 2007 when legislation allowed dental hygienists to provide their

services outside the dental office, more than 190 independent dental hygiene practices — stand alone clinics and mobile services — have opened across Ontario. “This legislation change in 2007 increased access to affordable and comprehensive dental hygiene care,” said Jocelyne King, president of

the Ontario Dental Hygienists’ Association. “Gift From the Heart goes one step further to make sure more people know about dental hygiene’s integral role in the delivery of quality oral care in Ontario.” Dental hygiene is a regulated health-care profession with more than 12,000 practising

dental hygienists in Ontario, making it the third largest of the health-care professions in the province. The College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario, the profession’s regulatory body, sets policies and standards to ensure the public receives safe and ongoing comprehensive oral care.

ing isn’t that good.”

Along with being a mainstay of Carp’s business community for many years, Robert Moore was also very active in the village in other ways. He is a 60-year past president of the local Masonic Lodge and is a past president of the Carp Agricultural Society, having been Agriculture president in 1962. He also loved to sing although he says he can’t do much of it these days. “My voice is gone,” he says, adding he enjoyed the singing for a long time. “And my hear-

LOVING LIFE As someone who quickly admits that “everything I tackle, I love,” one senses a real zest for not only life but for living one’s life. And the love of his life was his wife Gwen, to whom he was married to for 49 years until her death in 1993. The couple had two daughters and two sons. “I have seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren,” Moore says proudly. While playing bridge in Kanata and Stittsville, as well

as euchre in Kinburn are his winter passions, his summer love is gardening. And he indulges in his earthly passion at the family cottage on Big Rideau Lake. “That’s where we do our gardening,” Bill Moore notes. “He’s (his father) the boss.” But for all the hats Moore has worn over his lifetime, the one of ‘survivor’ is particularly poignant. Two years ago, while at one of his beloved bridge games in Kanata, Moore fell head first into a steel bench at the Mlacak Centre. See MOORE page 19 Photo courtesy HUNTLEY IN BLACK AND WHITE

What is sedation dentistry and am I a candidate? Conscious sedation dentistry allows for both adults and children to complete the dental care that they require. Sedation is a great option for anyone who is anxious or afraid of having a needle, hearing the sound of the drill or simply even going into the dental office! Sedation would also benefit those who have a strong gag reflex since the medication helps to alleviate the gagging response. For those who experience sore jaw muscles during a long dental appointment, sedation helps to relax the muscles and make the appointment more comfortable. Sedation is beneficial for those who lead a busy lifestyle and would like to do as much as possible in one dental visit. People who have difficulty being completely frozen would also benefit from sedation dentistry since sedation aids in pain control. Conscious sedation is also a wonderful option for children who are afraid of dental treatment such

as fillings or extractions. Your child can have a positive and comfortable experience using sedation dentistry. With oral conscious sedation dentistry you can have dental work completed in a relaxed way! Your comfortable state can be achieved with nitrous (laughing) gas, sedation pills or a combination of the two. You can have all the required dental care completed and thereby return to excellent oral health! With oral conscious sedation, hours will seem like minutes! Luckily, sedation medications have an amnesic effect which means most individuals have very little, if any, memory of the sights, smells or sounds of the visit. Are you a good candidate for oral sedation? Call Capital Smiledocs to make your first appointment! We understand that this can be difficult for an anxious people and we will go out of our way to make the experience as easy and comfortable as

Mayor’s Report

Moore lives life to the fullest From page 18

“I broke my teeth, my nose,� recalls Moore. “I was in intensive care for 10 days.� His son adds he was in hospital for five weeks and there were several trips in an out of intensive care during that time. “We didn’t think he’s make it,� Bill Moore says. “But, he’s a survivor.� He is only one of many people in awe of his father’s energy level. “He’s got this get up and go about him. He never stops,� Bill Moore notes, adding sometimes it is to the dismay of family members. Take for instance this past Christmas day. The elder Moore took it upon himself to try and visit as many of his children in the area as possible. It didn’t matter to him the

weather was not great and road conditions less than ideal. “That was a long day. I was sick as was everyone (with worry),� Bill Moore says. “He didn’t get to Perth until 4 p.m. That was a long day.� Ask Robert Moore what the secret is to a long life, and he smiles, offering that “going to bed early and getting up early� keeps him spry. Moore’s family is planning a birthday celebration for him March 4 at the Carp Agricultural Hall. While he acknowledges many of his friends are “gone,� he seems ready to make new ones any change he gets. “I like to make people laugh. We don’t get enough laughs,� he says with a smile. Maybe, in the end, that smile is Robert W. Moore’s secret fountain of youth.

Her passion and determination to create Confederation Boulevard and a new convention centre are just two of her many legacies that will live on in Ottawa.

living services since the program began last year, up from 166 six months ago. Early results show that clients in the program – even though they are generally more ill – visit the emergency room less often than seniors who are not enrolled in the program. By 2013, more than 500 clients will be accessing assistedliving services in the Champlain region at any one time. Clients are referred to the program by the Champlain Community care Access Centre. Seveal agencies are co-ordinating assisted living programs funded by the LHIN across the region, including the Mills Community Support Corporation in Almonte and Carleton Place, Renfrew Victoria Hospital, and the Grove Nursing Home in Arnprior.

Jean Pigott was many things to many people: A loving wife, sister, mother and grandmother; a pioneer; and to many, an icon. Jean was an incredible leader in both the public and private sectors, and someone who could always be counted on to put the interests of her community and country ďŹ rst. She was tremendously driven and hardworking but she was also an eternal optimist. She encouraged people to dream big and work hard to see those dreams come true.

EMC Lifestyle - The Champlain LHIN has issued a news release publicizing assisted living services in the area, including an Arnprior-based program with an office at the Grove Nursing Home. Seniors in the Champlain region are benefitting from a new assisted-living program that helps them maintain their independence, it says. Funded by the Champlain LHIN and operated by various community agencies, services include homemaking, personal hygiene, care co-ordination, security checks and a 24/7 on-call service. The aim of the program is to increase health services for seniors in their own homes. This relieves pressures on hospital emergency rooms. It also prevents premature admissions to long-term care homes, freeing these beds for people who need them the most. “I don’t feel I ever want to go into a nursing home,â€? says George Girard, 79, who has angina and suffered a stroke that weakened the left side of his body. He and his 77-year-old wife Shirley, who is being treated for cancer, are clients of the assisted living program coordinated by Bruyère Continuing Care and operated on a day-today basis by VHA Health and Home Support. The couple resides in a cozy apartment in OrlĂŠans. They receive 16 hours of services every week from personal support workers who help with laundry, vacuuming, and bathing, among other tasks. “They’ve changed my whole life,â€? says Mrs. Girard, who was referred to the program after being admitted to hospital. “You can’t describe what they do for you, because they just do so much.â€? Family and neighbours also often drop by to chat or help with errands such as collecting groceries. The couple says that without the assisted living program, they’d be in a long-term care home. In the Champlain region, 370 clients have received assisted-

Patient survey results delight ADMH officials EMC Lifestyle - The Arnprior District Memorial Hospital board of directors is delighted with the “tremendous results” of a survey on patient satisfaction with the facility. The Acute Care Patient Experience survey was conducted for the three month period ending Sept. 30, 2011. The company conducting the survey, NRC Picker, reported a response rate of 44.7 per cent, one of the highest in recent memory, noted ADMH president and CEO Eric Hanna. While it has been the experience of ADMH to have very high ratings with respect to the overall quality of care, this quarter’s response (July 1 to Sept. 31) represents one of the highest the organization has received in recent years, says the hospital. Specific results include an overall positive score of 97.6 per cent by those responding to the survey. This compares very favorably to the overall Ontario average of 93.3 per cent, and more importantly an improvement over the previous survey,

which had a positive response of 93.6 per cent. Board chair Jay Johnston was quick to note the dedication of the team of professionals at ADMH, who continuously focus upon improving the patient experience. “Our staff inclusive of nursing, support staff, volunteers and physicians are continuously working in a team environment that supports the achievement of the best possible patient experience,” he said. “Many new initiatives, such as improving the type of information patients receive when discharged, is clearly evident as seen by a 10 per cent increase in the results to the question ‘family had enough recovery information’, added Johnston “In fact, the results for ADMH put us 20 per cent above the provincial average for this category.”’ The vision statement of ADMH Corporation includes the phrase – “being recognized for exemplary care.”

Tim Tierney, chairman of the information technology subcommittee that oversees the project. “It really shows that people are moving to the web,” Tierney said. “I think they have been waiting for this.” The new options will provide better service and better two-way communication, said Krista Oswald, a city staffer who gave the finance and economic development committee an update on the project on Nov. 7. Service Ottawa will include automatic reports and notification to the person who made the request. “This is one of the key initiatives that will actually change how people experience the frontline services,” Kanellakos said. It will also change how city staff works by streamlining requests. The project will cost $79 million to implement and is expected to save $40 million annually by trimming operating costs.

City of Ottawa moves towards banning smoking at patios, beaches, parks and city properties By LAURA MUELLER

with a warning period from April 2 to July 2. The expanded bylaw won’t require any additional funds to enforce, according to the report. A couple of presenters at the Feb. 7 health board meeting questioned whether the expanded bylaw could be effectively enforced without more money. Glebe resident Catherine Caule said she worried the smoke-free bylaw expansion would “cannibalize” resources from other bylaw programs such as noise enforcement. Ottawa public health staff told the board that education and a proactive approach would boost compliance with the new bylaw, but bylaw officers would also respond to complaints through 311. OVER REGULATING? At least one councillor, Kanata South’s Allan Hubley, questioned whether it was necessary to regulate smoking outdoors at private businesses. “Nobody disputes the importance of addressing secondhand smoke,” Hubley said in an interview. “But we don’t want to over-regulate these things.” Hubley, a former smoker, said he is “dead set against

cigarettes.” “But I am also someone who values our rights and freedoms,” he added. If businesses know they can attract more customers and make more money by banning smoking, they will do that on their own, Hubley said. That’s the case with some of the patios in the Byward Market; the city’s entertainment district with the highest concentration of patios, with more than 40 patios within its boundaries. Jasna Jennings, executive director of the business improvement area that represents local restaurateurs and

ing, so there is a financial incentive to go non-smoking, Hubley said.

merchants, said the expanded non-smoking bylaw seems to be a non-issue for many Byward businesses. “A lot of people felt this was a natural progression,” Jennings said. While a couple of owners worried the expanded bylaw might impact their business, there was very little turnout for consultations or opposition to the proposal, Jennings said. “I was a little bit surprised with the lack of input,” she said. Another idea could be to add an extra licence fee for patios that want to have smok-

Only 15 per cent of Ottawans are smokers, according to the report, so it would make more financial sense for restaurants to appeal to the 85 per cent of residents who don’t smoke by making their patios smoke-free. But that choice should probably be left up to the restaurants, Hubley said, although he is awaiting for more information on the level of consultation with businesses before he decides whether he’ll support the proposal.

EMC news – Smokers should butt out on restaurant patios as well as city-owned parks, beaches, buildings and markets, the city’s public health board is recommending. A decade after the city banned smoking indoors, the next phase of the bylaw expansion would make all city properties – including beaches, more than 1,000 parks and 300 city facilities, including the Byward and Parkdale market stalls – smoke-free zones. Smoking on city streets and sidewalks would still be allowed. More controversial will be the push to keep smoking out of restaurant and pub patios. But the policy got resounding support from around 20 delegates who presented at a Feb. 7 meeting that resulted in the health board endorsing the plan. “Who would of thought you’d be here to tell us we’re foot dragging and not moving fast enough … we thought we were being cutting edge,” said Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, who chairs the board. Other municipalities have done “bits and pieces” of what Ottawa is proposing, said the city’s medical officer of health, Dr. Isra Levy,

but he added: “We believe the comprehensiveness of what’s being done here puts Ottawa back on top.” The popularity of voluntary smoke-free signs in parks is growing, and the proposed bylaw expansion reflects that public desire for more smokefree spaces, Holmes said. Ottawa public health has been consulting residents and businesses on the plan for the past year. “It’s clear that people want this,” Holmes said. Smokers were included in the consultation, and they generally supported the recommendation, although in smaller numbers than the general population, Levy said. “We’re seeing a respect for non-smokers,” he said. The expanded bylaw will be discussed by the community and protective services committee on Feb. 15 and would need council’s final approval on Feb. 22. The health board added a component to the plan by asking the city health board to write to local MPs and MPPs advocating changes to the Smoke-Free Ontario Act to include water pipes or hookahs in the scope of smoking products the city can regulate. Fines of $305 could be handed out to people smoking in restricted areas after July 2,

More trees, red brick in detailed Lansdowne design By LAURA MUELLER

EMC News - A tree-filled Lansdowne Park with a lot of

red brick buildings was the updated vision for the site presented at city hall on Feb. 7. The more detailed design

of the storefront retail, glassfronted cinema and woodwrapped sports stadium is the product of six months of hag-


gling among a team of experts that is designing the project, said planning committee chairman, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume. “Creativity often comes from a conflict of ideas,” said Hume, a member of the design review panel for the Lansdowne project. “The process has been long and at times, extremely difficult.” SOME CHANGES The most notable changes were to the plans for the Horticulture Building, a historic structure that was stripped of its heritage designation in order to move it to a different spot on the site. Julian Smith, the heritage architect in charge of that portion of the project, said a portion of the building will be permanently removed and the north façade, which faces Holmwood Avenue, will have a glass front instead of a brick wall. That building will be turned into a meeting space that can hold up to 500 people, with space for smaller community events and a kitchen. There may also be an info booth and a restaurant in the Horticulture Building, Smith said. OSEG and the city intend

rent 230 to 880 trees when the project is done. In particular, a grid of trees was added to the design for the plaza in front of the Aberdeen Pavilion that will house the farmers’ market. The revitalized stadium is one of the first elements that will be constructed and is supposed to be ready for CFL play by 2014. The stadium’s designer, Robert Claiborne, said the venue can hold up to 40,000 with the addition of temporary seating. Claiborne also indicated that floor-level club seats will be added to the stadium. The new south stands will be “embraced” by a curved wooden “veil” that will act as a transition between the curving landscape of the canal and the stadium, said George Dark, a planner who is also a member of the design review panel. It’s not meant to protect the stands from the elements, but more as a design element, he added. One of the buildings, listed as “Block A” at the corner of Holmwood and Bank, features a green roof, and Dark said there are plans to put solar panels on the roof of the Horticulture Building.

to seek re-designation for the Horticulture Building, Smith said, but David Flemming, former president of Heritage Ottawa, wasn’t convinced it would be possible, given all the changes to the structure and that fact that it will be moved – a process that’s estimated to cost $6 million. A refrigerated outdoor skating and curling rink has been added to the most recent version of the plans, and it will be situated south of the Aberdeen Pavilion adjacent to the community garden and orchard. A children’s play park is planned beside the rink, which could function as a basketball court in the summer. The presentation didn’t mention plans for the Aberdeen Pavilion building itself, but Smith said there will be few changes. It will mainly function as additional event space, like a large tent without climate control, Smith said. The farmers’ market might make use of the space, or it could even be used as a large indoor space to park bicycles during events. Mayor Jim Watson highlighted how the project will “re-green” the park, adding grassy areas and boosting the number of trees from the cur-

Sandvik celebrates 150 years, more than 35 in Arnprior By SHERRY HAAIMA

Sandvik timeline

Sandvik management, staff and workers join guests outside the plant Jan. 31 for a flagraising and anniversary event marking the Sweden-based company’s 150th anniversary. Formerly Noranda, Sandvik opened in Arnprior in 1975. “It’s been a very good company to work for,” says McLellan. “I think the success of the whole plant is because of the people who work here.” Employees, staff, management – all have found a way to work together. “We’re very team-oriented,” says McLellan. The same basic product is being made, it’s the technology to make it that has changed over the years. Sandvik is a very diversified company, says McLellan. Sandvik supplies its tubes to a variety of industries, including chemical, petrochemical, pulp and paper, oil and gas, power, semiconductor and aerospace.

“We’ve responded very well to market demand over the years,” he says. More than 200 people work at Sandvik, from Arnprior and Renfrew and other parts of the Ottawa Valley and the city of Ottawa. People come to Sandvik and stay there, evidence that it’s a good company to work for, say employees. The boxes of newspaper clippings, photos of the plant and even snapshots from company events show the camaraderie grew with the success of the business. Such has been the case for machine shop lead hand Brian Purdie Sr., whose two sons have come to work at Sandpremier realty, (2008) ltd., brokerage

EMC Business - Celebrations held Tuesday in Arnprior to recognize the 150th anniversary of Sandvik were much like the ongoing experience of those who work there – management, staff and workers coming together for the ultimate success. Sandvik Materials Technology Canada, part of the Sandvik Group headquartered in Sweden, has its own storied history in Arnprior, starting out in 1975 as Noranda. The plant makes stainless steel tube, strip, wire and bar and high-alloyed steel and specialty metals. Arnprior Mayor David Reid, a guest at the Jan. 31 celebration at the plant, said it was fitting to share the town’s 150th birthday with an industry that has been such a big part of the community over the years. Reid, who grew up around the corner and can recall the plant being built in the 1970s, helped general manager Mike Hall raise a special anniversary flag and addressed the crowd before a buffet lunch for the workers and guests. “It’s a very proud day for us all. Thank you very much for being a part of Sandvik and the community of Arnprior,” said Reid. “We look forward to more celebrations in the future.” Hall welcomed the group of guests and visitors, which included recent retirees. Hall, himself a relatively new addition to the Sandvik team, thanked all those in attendance for their role in the plant’s success and for coming together to celebrate the milestone. Highlights over the years Norm McLellan started out as an electrician pretty much back in the beginning, seeing it as a job with opportunities for advancement.

Valley team qualifies for Winter Games EMC Sports - The Major PeeWee AA Ottawa Valley Silver Seven, which includes Dunrobin player Taylor Carlson, will be representing Eastern Ontario at the Ontario Winter Games in March.

Players also come from Pakenham (Logan Buchanan) Carleton Place, Almonte, Stittsville, Richmond, and

Osgoode-Rideau. The Silver Seven squad won the local qualifying tournament in January, giving them the honour of representing their region in their hockey category at the games. The Ontario Winter Games is being hosted by Collingwood this year from March 8 to 11. The Games are a highly recognized, multi-sport competition that showcases some of Ontario’s best amateur athletes.

GIBSON, In loving memory of our devoted Husband, Dad and Grandpa Jack, who passed away February 10, 2002. The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you, We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it everyday. But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it never will be the same.

Propeller Dance brought its unique talents to Huntley Centennial Public School in Carp last week. The company is the only organization in Ontario with the sole mandate of providing dance programming to children, youth and adults with and without disability. The program seen by Huntley students dealt with woodland animals in the forest and the challenges they face. In the top right photo, Liz Winkelaar leads the blackflies in a dance. In the top photo, the entire troupe takes part in a dance called ‘US’ in which all participants depict an activity that they enjoy. In the bottom photo, the blackflies (Renata Soutter and Robert Chartier) make some moves.

Book your entire family for an exam, x-rays and cleaning and receive free tooth whitening for the adults (value up to $400) and free sports guards for school children (value up to $180). Call for details!

Directors review successful year at Carp Agricultural Society general meeting By THERESA FRITZ

EMC News – Sunny and warm weather on the final day of last year’s Carp Fair put attendance levels at a record high for a Sunday. This was just one of the good news stories to come out during the Carp Agricultural Society general meeting held Jan. 25 at the Carp Agricultural Hall. Director after director presented reports for the areas they were responsible for and the reports were glowing. Among the highlights from the fair activity was the fact nearly $130,000 was raised in gate revenue the final day of the fair. This was the “best day so far for a Sunday,” according to Dan Lord, who oversaw gates and security last year. The numbers for team penning were up in 2011 and resulted in the event having to finish on the Sunday, reported Matt Munro. The heavy horse report revealed last year’s fair marked the first time in a while there was a 10-horse hitch on Sunday. In presenting the beef report, Ryan Foley reported the fair will no longer be hosting the Carleton County Holstein Show as part in 2013 but noted “we would be happy to accommodate them on a differ-

The first vice-president Homecraft is Wendy Cox and second vice-president is Laurie Dillon. First vice-president for Agriculture is Matt Munro and second vice-president is Bruce Hill.

Each year, the presidents create a theme for the fair and this year will be no different. “Paul and I have decided that this year’s theme will be ‘Thanks to the Past’. This means different things to different people,” Johnston said. “To me, it means thanks to the past presidents, including my father-in-law Neville Johnston and his family before him, all the directors, sponsors and volunteers who made Carp Fair what it is today.” She also expressed thanks to her family and her past for

Safety tips to avoid deer on the roadways EMC News - Patrol officers in the West Carleton area responded to 37 general calls for service from the public for the reporting period of Jan. 22 to Jan. 28. In addition to the calls for service, patrol officers are also proactively enforcing the Highway Traffic laws, responding to false 9-1-1 and alarm calls, and assisting the Ottawa Fire, Paramedics and By-law services. WOW THIS IS GREAT DEER

Only one deer collision in the whole of rural west Ottawa. And, this one came in from the West Carleton ward. So, the score now stands at 11 to 2 in favor of Rideau-Goulbourn. Because health, safety and security are important elements in all of our lives I would like to remind all drivers about the importance of keeping a sharp eye out for deer and other wildlife. Here are a few safety tips that you can use on your road trip: take the time to scan the road ahead from shoulder to shoulder; use high beams at night where possible; stay in control by watching your speed and taking extra precautions when driving at night; brake firmly if the deer is standing

On Jan. 25 on Constance Bay Road in Constance Bay, a 911-caller reported observing, at around 2 p.m., a male openly carrying a gun of some sort along the roadway. The caller indicated that the gun was possibly a BB or paintball gun. A short time later police located and identified the white male. On investigation it was determined that the male had a toy M16 Airsoft gun that was capped with an orange plug at

A property owner on March Road reported Jan. 23 that some unidentified thieves stole approximately $1,200 worth of firewood, or 10 truck loads, from his woodlot sometime between Thurs., Jan. 19 and Mon., Jan. 23. The entrance to the property was controlled by a lock and chain and the property is unoccupied. The woodlot is located on March Road near Diamondview Road. A homeowner reported the theft of some household tools Jan. 24 on Oak Creek Road that occurred sometime between Dec. 11, 2011 and Jan. 7, 2012. The unidentified culprit entered into the unlocked shed and stole two Craftsman chainsaws and four boxes of assorted hand tools. THEFT FROM VEHICLE

An unidentified culprit used a hammer to smash in the driver’s side window to gain access to a locked vehicle on Keatley Road sometime during the overnight hours on Sat., Jan. 21. The vehicle owner reported

that the hammer was left on the driver’s seat and his vehicle was rummaged through, but nothing was stolen. MAKE THE RIGHT CALL

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
