Vintage sleds to make tracks March 1 in West Carleton David Johnston

Community - Vintage snowmobile enthusiasts will be out on West Carleton trails Saturday, March 1 for the 8th annual Branch 616 Legion Old Sled Run and Vintage Snowmobile Show. Starting from the legion in Constance Bay, the 12 km route winds through the Torbolton Forest en route to Gavan’s Hotel in Quyon, Que. Organizer Mike O’Reilly says the run would only take about a half hour on a modern sled, but the vintage machines travel at a more relaxed pace. “It all depends on breakdowns and stops for socializing. It’s all about the memories, the nostalgia and hanging out with others who are enjoying recreating the vibe from 40 years ago.” O’Reilly added that the total 25 km run, leaving the legion at 10 a.m., is all the rally can

Proceeds from the run, in excess of $1,000 last year, go toward the upkeep and programs at the legion branch. Trophies for various prize categories are sponsored by City of Ottawa Ward 5 Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. An avid snowmobiler, El-Chantiry is planning to participate again this year. The event kicks off at 8 a.m. with a breakfast buffet, sponsored and catered by El-Chantiry. “Eli will also be awarding his annual ‘Councillor’s choice’ for the machine that best brings back his fond memories of a boyhood spent snowmobiling in the mountains of northern Lebanon,” said O’Reilly. “We also have a variety of other trophies for among others, first breakdown, best ‘rat’ sled and the rarest old iron.” Snowmobiling is a popular winter activity in Ontario. The province has over 34,000 kilometres of snowmobile trails, operated and maintained by the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC), its districts, member clubs and most importantly, countless volunteers. Locally in West Carleton, there are 240 km of groomed trails maintained by the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association. To operate a snowmobile on the trails, all snowmobiles must have a valid OFSC trail permit displayed, insurance and registration. Drivers require a valid driver’s licence or snowmobile operator’s permit, which riders 12 years of age and older may obtain through available snowmobile driver training sessions. Police, STOP officers, and OFSC Trail Patrol monitor the trails for riding without a valid permit, speeding, alcohol (zero tolerance), and other traffic infractions. The cost of a permit for the remaining 2014 season is $260. Classic permits are also available for snowmobiles 15 years of age or older, at the price of $130. “With the snowmobile trails being well used this season, I would like to remind everyone (pedestrians and snowmobilers alike) to be respectful of your neighbours while out enjoying the trails,” said El-Chantiry. “Snowmobilers should keep within respectful speed limits and slow down when passing pedestrians. Pedestrians should move to the side of the trail as much as possible to allow snowmobiles to pass by safely.” Also, dogs must be leashed at all times while on the trails (as stipulated in The Animal Care and Control ByLaw No. 2003-77, dogs are never allowed to run at large when off the dog owner’s property). “Most importantly, snowmobilers should remain alcohol/drug free when operating their machines,” he added. “The police have noted that a large number of snowmobile accidents are alcohol related. “The West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association does a great job maintaining the trails so everyone can enjoy them. These trails should be useful for anyone that wants to get outside and enjoy winter, so let’s work together and keep our trails respectful and well used.” For more information on the vintage sled rally, check out the website at www.oldsledun.info/

Stittsville scout leader named Citizen of Year John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - He has been a Scout leader in Stittsville for the past 18 years. He saw his three children through the Stittsville Scouting program and now stays involved, helping with annual events such as Apple Day, Food Drives and the Kub Kar Derby. And his efforts and involvement have seen him widely recognized as the heart and soul of Scouting in Stittsville. Yes, Kevin Chappell of Stittsville is one of the reasons why the First Stittsville Scout Group has grown to be one of the largest single Scouting groups in Canada. And now Chappell’s dedication to the First Stittsville Scouts and Scouting in Stittsville have been recognized as he has been named as the Citizen of the Year in the 2014 People’s Choice Business Awards hosted by the West Ottawa Board of Trade (formerly the Kanata Chamber of Commerce). He was announced as the Citizen of the Year at the 15th annual People’s Choice Business Awards’ gala awards night at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata on Thursday, Feb. 20. Chappell was unable to attend the Awards gala as he was travelling but the award was accepted on his behalf by Tim Redpath of Stittsville, a longtime associate of Chappell’s with the

First Stittsville Scout Group. Redpath, in accepting the award o behalf of Chappell, noted in particular his decade-long involvement in the Scout Food Drives and the delivery of the collected food items to the Stittsville Food Bank. “He’s a remarkable guy and a pleasure to count him as a friend,” Redpath said about Chappell. As for Chappell himself, he has considered it a “wonderful surprise and a great honour” simply to have been nominated for the award and then to be declared the recipient of the award is an added surprise and honour. He notes that he is only one of the many fine volunteers who make up the leadership of the 1st Stittsville Scout Group. Chappell was a Cub and Scout himself in the late 1960s and quickly put all three of his children (two boys and one girl) in Scouting in Stittsville starting in 1996. He himself started as a Scout leader that same year. His children all completed the Scouting program, from Beavers through to Venturers but after his children left the program, he stayed on in a Service Scouter role, helping with 1st Stittsville Scout Group events such as Apple Day, Food Drives, Spring Clean-ups, the annual Show and Race (Kub Kar/Pine Car Derby) and Model Rockets.

At the awards gala, Chappell was not only described as “the heart and soul of scouting in Stittsville for years,” but also was noted for his “hands-on” approach in taking a lead role in various Scout activities in the community. Speaking about Chappell, gala MC Kurt Stoodley, who announced Chappell’s receipt of the Citizen of the Year award, said: “He has striven to make Scouting an integral part of the community, not only in the services that it provides to youth but in the service that it can give back to the community.” Others nominated for the 2014 People’s Choice Business Awards Citizen of the Year honour included Dave Malcomson for Canadian Aid for Chernobyl; Dino Giannetti of theOttawa Power Wheelchair Hockey League, Dr. Agatha Sidlauskas of the Venta Preparatory School in Carp, Wen Jean Ho of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre and Eva von Jagow of Stittsville for her fundraising for the Breakfast Club of Canada.

Perhaps you have flat feet or high arches. Each of these foot conditions can affect the type of shoes that you’ll find the most comfortable. Get the wrong ones and you can end up with not only sore feet but pain in your ankles, knees, hips and lower back. Many people have no idea what kind of shape their feet are and continue to choose the wrong style of shoes.

If you do suffer from foot, back, knee and/or hip pain, visiting a foot care clinic such as BioPed http://bioped. com could provide you with valuable information on how to choose the right shoes for you. At BioPed, a certified Pedorthist will do a gait assessment to discover any issues that affect the way you walk, discuss your lifestyle and any medical conditions. They then advise you on the type of shoes that would provide you with the kind of support you need for stabilization and comfort. By understanding the shape of your feet you can choose the right footwear for daily as well as athletic activities. In the past, supportive footwear http://www.bioped. com/products/footwear.asp was considered unattractive and associated with an older generation. Today you can find stylish and attractive footwear for every foot condition and age

While 14 people died that night, the final death toll reached 47 and more than 150 people were injured. Muldoon was only 15 years old when he found himself trapped in the wreckage. The young Fitzroy Harbour farm boy had set out with his cousin for the bright lights of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lakeside Gardens dance hall when disaster struck. It was 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 27, 1942 when a late-running, jampacked CPR train collided with a troop train on the same track, on the same route and travelling in the same direction. Muldoon was trapped in the train wreck for five hours waiting for help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a split second everything was done,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon said. Trapped in the wreckage for hours, not far from the train engine, he particularly recalls the

headlight was still on and the glass was not even broken. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many of us were in that pile of junk,â&#x20AC;? he said. He also remembers people crying and calling for help, and how help came in the form of generous Almonte residents who opened their hearts and homes to the victims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people were amazing,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon said. On the other hand, Muldoon describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;pitifulâ&#x20AC;? the way CPR officials went to the scene to get the victims to sign waivers releasing them from responsibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all they cared about, getting that paper signed,â&#x20AC;? said Muldoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was no help offered. There was nothing.â&#x20AC;? Muldoon says a curve in the rail line probably saved his and his cousinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives because the

Newspapers recorded the crash that is still recalled with great sorrow to this day.

ED MULDOON engineer had to slow down. Nevertheless, the tragedy was inevitable, given the conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was no way he could stop,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon says of the troop train engineer.

There were no fatalities on the troop train that struck the passenger train from behind. Muldoon says he has been haunted by that deadly Christmas weekend, but has found some comfort in sharing his story with others. A fellow survivor is Dorothy Schultz of Renfrew who attended the meeting. She was a young student nurse at the time and believes she was spared because a friend had saved a seat for her farther from the point of impact, although the floorboards near her seat buckled from the impact. Fifty-five years after the crash a monument was dedicated on the site of the accident.

New group seeks to preserve the Huntley Highlands a public meeting on Wednesday, March 5, at 7 p.m. at the Carp Memorial Hall. Everyone is welcome. The Friends of Huntley Highlands are seeking ideas and volunteers for making the highlands a community asset including the creation of a park and trails on lands overlooking Carp Village.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would love to work with the city and local residents to start making some trails on the 200 acres that the city owns near Carp,â&#x20AC;? said Greg LeBlanc, chairman of the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also want to run one or two guided hikes this season to show people the natural beauty of the highlands.â&#x20AC;?

In addition to a public education campaign, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais wants the city to push for the province to allow the installation of cameras on school bus stop-sign arms, similar to the ones used to catch drivers who run red lights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of concern from school bus operators about more and more people running stop signs when the school bus is stopped,â&#x20AC;?

Stephen Blais wants the city to push for the province to allow the installation of cameras on school bus stop-sign arms, similar to the ones used to catch drivers who run red lights. the police to do targeted enforcement in January and February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It yielded good results in terms of they got a lot of people, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad results because it means a lot of people are going through stop signs,â&#x20AC;? Blais said. Police handed out more than 200 infractions for violations in school zones over two days in January, Blais

said, adding that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;an outrageously high number.â&#x20AC;? That includes speeding, as well as failing to stop for a school bus, which carries a fine of between $400 and $2,000 and six demerit points on the first offence. The technology to attach a camera on a school bus stop sign exists, but the problem is provincial legislation, Blais

said. Cameras are already used in Alberta and in some United States counties. Unlike a redlight camera, which acts as its own evidence of the crime, images from a camera mounted on a school bus stop sign are not admissible in court, meaning the bus driver would have to show up to corroborate the information. Blais already wrote to the min-

ister of transportation and Ottawa-area MPs to request a change to the legislation that would allow automatic ticketing for stop-sign camera violations, similar to the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done for red-light cameras. On Feb. 12 he gave notice that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring a motion to the next city council meeting to ask for the city to officially back his push and write

to the minister requesting the change. In the meantime, Blais said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation department has a couple ideas in the works to tackle the issue. First, an education campaign including new roadside signs will launch this spring to remind drivers to stop behind school buses. Second, Blais is hoping the city will sponsor a pilot project to put the cameras on some school buses. The councillor has been discussing the issue with ML Bradley, the major school-bus operator in Cumberland and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traffic department.

The highlands run northwest from March Road to the Kinburn Side Road and lie entirely within the ward of West Carleton-March. The wetlands of the highlands form a significant part of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watershed by contributing year round clean water flow that recharges underground aquifers.

The Friends of Huntley Highlands envision areas of public access near the village of Carp where active recreation and cultural events can be held as well as other areas for conservation of environmentally significant and sensitive wetlands and barrens.

All need to heed flood warnings

A

fter a winter of significant snowfall, everyone needs to take extra care around the waterways of the capital region this spring. According to the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, the snowpack in the area is twice the depth normally measured in the middle of February, posing a significant risk to low-lying areas in the watershed. If we get significant rainfall during the remaining weeks of winter and early spring, that will only increase the flooding risk. While a flood risk may not be imminent, the conditions are ripe for there to be a significant threat as temperatures rise. Residents living in traditionally flood-prone areas are advised to watch for flood warnings that could be potentially issued by the conservation authority. This flood risk is borne not just by those who live near rivers and lakes in the area, but also by those who enjoy spending recreational time in city parks and other riverside areas. Especially at risk are children and pets, who could easily stray too close to high water and be pulled under by swift currents. This means parents need to explain the dangers to their children and keep them away from moving water. Dog owners likewise should keep

their pets on a leash whenever they are near rivers or ponds. Children and pets are also prone to venturing out on the rapidly thinning ice. In past years, the Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition has warned about the risks of thin ice, reminding residents that â&#x20AC;&#x153;one can never tell the true depth or the thickness of the ice by the colour on the surface.â&#x20AC;? The best advice is to simply stay off the ice. Emergency services typically responded to dozens of ice and waterway related calls at this time of year, and drownings are unfortunately an all-too-common occurrence. With the potential for increased flooding risk this spring, this trend threatens to continue if people fail to remain wary of the dangers. These tragedies are something no one wants to experience and it falls to all of us to stay safe near waterways this spring. Several authorities have made clear the risks presented by high river levels and thinning ice. It is now our responsibility to ensure everyone heeds those warnings. The last thing a parent, sibling, friend or pet owner wants to do is lose a loved one. Stay aware of the risks, heed the warnings and stay away from rivers, ponds and lakes until the threat has passed.

Change really can be a double-edged sword

Y

ou get a little nervous when the people who make a product you like have started thinking. Sometimes thinking is the worst thing that can happen. Thinking means changing and sometimes changing is the worst thing you can do. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one reaction to a headline last week: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tim Hortons brews up changes.â&#x20AC;? The story under the headline says that there has been a steady decline in the number of people buying food and coffee at Tims, because of the challenge of cheaper coffee at some competitors and greater varieties of coffee at others. The article goes on to suggest that the Tims will consider changes in everything from cup size to decor to doughnut selection. The notion of change is going to make some Tims fans nervous. Change is not always bad. Bigger bathrooms would be a hit with members of the travelling public who sometimes face lineups. But the thing Tims doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to change is its personality, which has always been its most important advantage. It seems to be a natural tendency in business for companies to imitate their competitors. This can result in a sameness that is frustrating for consumers looking for something distinct. Tims has so far avoided this. If you

you have a distinctive personality? You might, perhaps, if you thought that consumers had changed. In terms of coffee places, have they? Political strategists have this theory that voters can be divided into Starbucks people and Tim Hortons people -- with the Tims people having suburban and rural lifestyles and voting Conservative, while the Starbucks people think like downtowners and vote Liberal and NDP. In reality, as opposed to politics, things are not so simple and neither are we. Most of us are a mixture. Sometimes we feel like taking the laptop to the Starbucks and splurging on some exotic coffee-related concoction. Other times we just feel like a coffee, quick and cheap, in a well-lit place where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait for a dozen people with laptops to vacate a table. (This last may change, now that Tims is offering free Wi-Fi.) On the road, people probably prefer Tims, the washrooms notwithstanding, because they are easier to find, have good parking and are kid-friendly. Those are things that Tims would be crazy to change. And they might be wary of offering new coffee flavours, since that just slows things up in the ordering line. If Tims is really thinking about serious change, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a vain hope that they might

consider getting out of the drive-thru business. The problems with drive-thru have been welldocumented, most notably clogged streets and emissions from all those idling vehicles, as well as slower service within the stores for those who had the energy to walk from their cars. The end of the drive-thru wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen unless municipal authorities see the light, which mostly they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But Tim Hortons could gain a lot of public goodwill by such a gesture. Then maybe other businesses would follow, since companies, as we have seen, tend to imitate their competitors.

Girl Guides learn how to keep a happy heart Community - It was a “Happy Heart Day” for the Brownie Girl Guides of the West Carleton area. A special thank you to guests speakers and demonstrators, Dr. John Macdonald of the Ottawa Heart Institute and Tina Lyons, of Rising Lotus Yoga in Arnprior for attending the Constance Bay Community Centre meeting. Dr. Macdonald is a Cardiac Anesthesiologist Critical Care Medicine Specialist at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.

He demonstrated the heart and how it functions with other body organs. The girls enjoyed a skipping drill and tested their pulse to see how our heart rate goes up. Lyons demonstrated a yoga class for the girls where they learned different poses, such as the ‘Cat’ and the ‘Cow. Both were big hits. The girls learned how stretching and breathing keeps people healthy and strong every day. Girl guiders of the unit are Shannon Spallin, Nancy Macdonald, Tammy Smith and Angie Bonell.

Community - Elementary school students at Stonecrest Public School were all ears Thursday for story-telling. Sponsored by Branch 616 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Constance Bay, the annual event focuses on presentations from primary students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tell stories based on the books they have read. They tell the story through their own words,â&#x20AC;? said faculty organizer Marie-Helene Crawford. Well-known childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author Robert Munsch was a popular choice for stories. Children from grades 1 to 3 spoke in front of their peers in the gymnasium. Some gave animated speeches in French. The story tellers were judged by a trio of educators including two retired teachers from Stonecrest. In addition to Vice Principal Todd Thompson, judges were Kathryn Argue and Sylvie Copping. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always fun to come back to school,â&#x20AC;? said Kathryn Argue at the conclusion of the morning-long session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was amazing to see how much the children could express themselves. And we even had bilingual judges.â&#x20AC;? She expressed appreciation to the Legion for supporting the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public speaking is important and this is a wonderful program.â&#x20AC;?

Similarly, Sylvie Copping appreciated the experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very entertaining. I love to hear the stories and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always nice to come back to see friends.â&#x20AC;? Grade one students who made speeches were Sydney Fulcher who spoke about Madame Lave-Tout, while Daniel Sucee talked about Dan the Flying Man. Sam Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topic was Petit Poussin Que Dis-Tu? Dylan McPhee rounded out the grade one entry with Bruno le Brontosaure which garnered him first prize for his grade. In the grade two group, Carmen Beck led off with The Snowball, followed by Madelyn Haines with Le Dodo. Caydle Jessup talked about Smelly Sock and Angelina Matson spoke on Droles de Cochonds. Bennet van Barrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation of Le Dodo won first prize for grade two. Grade three started with Nicole McJannet speaking about Make Up Mess, followed by Taylor Snelling with De La Peinture Partout. Jamie Daalder spoke about Aaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hair and Danika Muiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation was Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Inukshuk Solitare. Sarah Carroll told the tale of Poisson dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;avril and Hannah McMillan expressed thoughts on Chantons a la Ferme, which was the winning presentation for grade three. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students have worked so hard and we are proud of them,â&#x20AC;? said Ms. Crawford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate all the support at home.â&#x20AC;?

Government not listening to complaints about hydro To the editor: Something is rotten in the State of Ontario! On Saturday, March 1 in Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay, people will be gathering at 2 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion to discuss their concerns about hydro bills. This meeting is part of a growing mass of discontent across Ontario regarding escalating hydro rates. Earlier this year Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ombudsman, Andre Marin, launched an investigation into Hydro One after receiving hundreds of complaints about high bills. Since then, Marin has received thousands of new complaints (4,117 in the last two weeks) and two top customer service executives have left Hydro One. In her December 2013 report the Auditor General of Ontario, Bonnie Lysyk, pointed out that the ranks of high-paid executives at Ontario Power Generation had swelled even as the rest of the

organization had gone through a downsizing. In some cases, senior officials received bonuses more than double their annual salary. Shortly after the report, three top executives were fired. Facebook pages abound with petitions and proposed rallies against escalating hydro rates. Join the fight against Hydro rates has over 22,000 â&#x20AC;&#x153;likesâ&#x20AC;? and a list of towns and cities that will be protesting across Ontario on April 4. Another Facebook site, Petition Against Ontario Hydro, has close to 30,000 â&#x20AC;&#x153;likesâ&#x20AC;?. Many MPPs in Ontario, including Bob Bailey, SarniaLambton and Randy Hillier, Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington have posted petitions calling for lower hydro rates on their websites. MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, Jack MacLaren, states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;issues related to Hydro One have become the

single largest issue my offices deal with on a daily basisâ&#x20AC;?. Other MPPS have voiced their support for the ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation into Hydro Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s billing practices. Clearly, there is a problem and clearly the Ontario government is not listening. MPP Bob Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to our complaints about escalating energy costs is that we have to control our consumption because high rates are here to stay. He even went so far as to suggest that we should wear sweaters in winter and turn down the heat. Mr. Chiarelli, in the coldest winter in at least eight years and with escalating energy costs, we have turned down the thermostat and are wearing not just one sweater, but two or three plus a jacket, a couple of pairs of wool socks and a tuque.

Absolute Insulation: Protecting Ottawa and Valley Area Homes against Rising Energy Costs

*&&8VgY^cVaAVcZ!GZc[gZl!DC@,K(OJust about every homeowner in the country can be excused from looking forward to their next heating and utility bill. They know what rising energy costs have in store for them in those dreaded envelopes. Fortunately for residents in the Metro Ottawa and valley region, Absolute Insulation Inc. offers a wide range of affordable solutions to reduce heating and air-conditioning costs and to improve the health of our in-home environments. Headquartered in Renfrew, Absolute Insulation Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner Chris Suitor has been fortunate to have partnered with well-known home construction and insulation expert Jeff Furniss (Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Assn - CUFCA certiďŹ ed). With Jeffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise and talent and Absoluteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmentally-friendly and effective products (closed-cell polyurethane spray-foam and blownin Owens Corning Propink), any type of home can realize substantial energy reduction beneďŹ ts as well as soundprooďŹ ng with minimal intrusion and installation times. Absolute can provide vapor barriers where needed and avoid higher costs for those walls, ceilings, and other building components that already have their own moisture protection. Polyurethane spray-foam has the highest R-value of any building and home insulation and can reduce heating/air-conditioning costs by up to 50%. It can be added to existing walls, ceilings, and ďŹ&#x201A;oors without specialized retaining systems and without intrusion. This makes sprayfoam insulation one of the most costeffective ways to get a grip on spiraling heating and air-conditioning costs.

Absoluteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s products are pest and vermin resistant. With Absolute Insulation thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no guess work or worry about cost or time overruns. Jeff and Chris provide no-obligation building insulation assessments for both residential and commercial structures and quotes and guarantee customer satisfaction. They take care to leave their clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; buildings as clean and tidy as when they arrived, using drop-cloths and boot ďŹ&#x201A;oor protectors whenever required. They leave no trace of their work except for lower utility bills. They have solved problems left by built-only-to-code construction and do-it-yourself renos gone wrong. They have brought comfort to rooms that owners had long ago given up on, and have helped to create a breathable shield that repels the worst that Canadian winters and summers can dish out. For peace of mind they are fully insured and WSIB registered. To ďŹ nd out how you can put an end to sky-high heating bills contact Absolute Insulation Inc. today. You can reach Chris or Jeff on their ofďŹ ce line at 613-4326000 or mobile lines at 613-223-5811 and 613-913-5731 respectively. Unlike your average contractors, they are easy to reach and schedule.

Innovative property design will help parking woes To the editor: Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No easy driveway solutionâ&#x20AC;? Feb. 13. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee approved a plan allowing suburban homeowners to widen their driveways. As it is, a single garage would allow parking for two cars, one in the garage and one in front, and a double garage would have space for four vehicles two in and two in front. A buyer can hopefully consider their immediate need for parking before purchasing a

home and if another car is added to the household then they should deal with it and not expect the city to solve their problem. Street parking is available for a reasonable charge, having used it myself, although it requires moving ones car back and forth during posted snow removal. If a garage is being used for storage then rent a storage unit and put the car in the garage instead of asking the city to allow asphalt paving on your front lawn. It is not up to the city to find solutions to

existing owner purchasing decisions. I am aware of some deviate building by developers who make garages too small to fit many cars, however, it is the purchaser who must measure twice and evaluate their need before buying. Does Ottawa want suburbs with mini front lawns and large parking area? Will the owners who do not pave over their lawn get a property tax reduction since their home will lose value? The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee should change the building by-law(s) for new home

builds applications including added parking allowances considering aesthetic and environmental necessities. This will result in larger lot sizes and/or innovative use of property design for new builds which Developers will need to address to have a product that will sell. Geri McCormick Nepean

Alternative to vehicles must be part of the solution To the editor: Your editorial â&#x20AC;&#x153;No easy driveway solutionâ&#x20AC;? presented a rather one-sided analysis of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;problemâ&#x20AC;? of insufficient parking. It simply accepted that those in the suburbs have more cars that need to be parked. That may be true now, but only because we let it. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not blame smaller homes and small-

er lots. The ever increasing price of housing is already excluding people from home ownership. Raising the minimum lot size would raise prices further, shutting more people out of the property market.

Give people useful alternatives and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll no longer need that second car. And, as a bonus, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll reduce congestion and pollution.

The mysterious winter tree walkers are back

MICHAEL RUNTZ

Look for Ruffed Grouse up in poplars near sunset.

Lifestyle - Over the years I have received innumerable requests for confirmation of identification of everything from caterpillars to birds, from tracks to feathers. But of all the requests, none have surprised me more than those concerning one rather common local bird. Occasionally misidentified as owls and commonly mistaken for hawks, the mystery birds have been Ruffed Grouse. Actually that is not too surprising. If you have seen a Ruffed Grouse up close, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have seen that its beak is neither straight like that of a sandpiper nor broad like that of a duck. It is hefty and down-curved with a distinct hooked tip, not unlike the bill of a predatory bird. But most unusual are the feet. Grouse bear hefty, strong toes covered in plate-like scales. On the end of each toe resides an impressive claw, one that gives the impression it

MICHAEL RUNTZ Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way might be owned by a hawk. So why do grouse, forest birds that spend much time walking on the ground, bear such impressive weapons? Do they kill and devour small animals? The answer is a qualified: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No!â&#x20AC;? Ruffed Grouse eat mainly leaves, fruit, seeds, twigs, and buds. But they also eat insects and other invertebrates such as millipedes that they find in the duff layer atop the soil. But they do not eat small mammals or birds. The strong claws and tough foot

scales provide excellent grip on branches as well as allow grouse to scratch through leaves when snow is not covering the ground. In winter, the mainstay of grouse is twigs and buds. They most actively feed during the crepuscular times of day, which are near dawn and dusk. This time of year grouse are often seen high up in trees, walking on branches and snapping off buds with their impressive bills. Their favourites are the young male flowers of trembling aspen. If you examine grouse feet in summer and again in winter, you would see a dramatic difference in their appearance. In winter a row of scale-like projections adorns each side of the toes. These projections act like snowshoes, expanding the footâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface area and allowing their owner to walk atop snow. As winter wanes, these â&#x20AC;&#x153;snowshoesâ&#x20AC;? break off and the toes regain their slim but muscular shape. Ruffed Grouse are unusual birds in other respects. During cold nights and occasionally cold days they bury themselves deep into the snow, gaining warmth from its cover. Many are those who have nearly had heart failure when a grouse unexpectedly burst out from near underfoot. In spring the males produce thundering drumrolls by rapidly beating their wings toward their chest while standing atop a log. Air rushing into the vacuum created by this motion produces that familiar spring sound. This winter I have received a number of photos of Ruffed Grouse, some dead, some alive. This suggests an increase in their population. So with buds now swelling, when sunsets are golden, be sure to look up for tree walkers in your neighbourhood!

Orchid show to bloom at rec centre Ottawa Orchid Society’s 33rd annual show takes place Easter weekend jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - The Ottawa Orchid Society’s 33rd annual Orchid Show and Sale is aiming to be a blooming success over Easter weekend. With a stunning array of orchids in every colour, shape and size, the Kanata Recreation Complex will be transformed into a garden of visual and olfactory delights on April 19 and 20. “It’s going to blow their mind,” said Janet Johns, cochair of the Orchid Show and Sale and member of the society. “It’s something that is so totally different from anything they are ever going to see. These aren’t tulips and daffodils, these are things that are exotic and from the far corners of the world.” Preparations for the show have been underway since September. The event, usually held at the Nepean Sportsplex, features more than 35 exhibits of 600-plus blooming orchids that range in size

SUBMITTED

The Ottawa Orchid Society’s 33rd annual Orchid Show and Sale features more than 35 exhibits of 600-plus blooming orchids that range in size from tiny flowers to blooms the size of dinner plates. The weekend event takes place April 19 and 20 at the Kanata Recreation Complex. from tiny flowers to blooms the size of dinner plates. “The actual displays are just mind boggling,” said

Johns, a Manor Park resident in Ottawa east. “This really is a big affair. We will fill the hockey arena, half with displays and half with people selling orchids.” The show offers something for everyone, said Johns, from the experienced green thumb to those who are just beginning. The event will feature a plant-care section with the society’s more experienced growers on hand to field questions. “You have to start somewhere,” said Johns. “If they can grow an African violet, they can grow an orchid.” The flowers on display will also be judged by American orchid society accredited judges, who volunteer their time to travel and attend various shows. The judging takes close to four hours before the show opens on the Saturday, said Johns. “It’s quite something,” she said. “The show itself, it’s just so magical really when you go in there and see all these fantastic flowers you

wouldn’t see anywhere else.” Orchids grow in all shapes and sizes, in various climates and terrains. Some grow in trees, others in rocky shores near streams, while some prefer mountains or humid climes. “That’s where the challenge is,” she said. “It’s something that once you start, it really is an addiction. It’s a real challenge.” Johns has a solarium and grows around 75 varieties of orchids. “It’s wonderful in the winter to go in there and forget about the snow,” she said. Johns joined the Ottawa Orchid Society shortly after it was formed in 1978. The group now boasts around 70 members who meet once a month and hosts presentations from members of other international orchid societies. “It just started with a few people who were attracted by orchids,” she said. “In those days you didn’t buy them in the supermarket. There wasn’t the Internet. The only

way someone could get information about growing these was to form the group.” The orchid show will also feature an art gallery, showcasing work from a variety of local artists, photographers and lace-makers. All have an orchid motif, said Johns. Artists have submitted orchids created in wood, silver, gold, cast metal, leather, silk, handmade lace, dough, and icing sugar, while art works have ranged from watercolours on silk to acrylic, oils and mixed media on board and canvas. “It has become quite a

large part of our show,” said Johns. The Orchid Show and Sale takes place at the Kanata Recreation Complex, 100 Walter Baker Pl., on April 19 from noon to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors (60plus) and children (ages 8 to 12). For more details about the show and the Ottawa Orchid Society, go to ottawaorchidsociety.com, email Johns at johnjns@sympatico.ca or call 613-749-0614.

Ottawa possible location of International Horticultural Ex ‘Olympics of Horticulture’ events attract millions of visitors in 2017 News - Landscape Ontario, supported by the Canadian Ornamental Horticulture Alliance, the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects, confirmed today that it is pursuing the possibility of bringing a sanctioned International Horticultural Exhibition, to Ottawa in 2017, Canada’s sesquicentennial year. Known as the ‘Olympics of Horticulture’, this type Exhibition, sanctioned by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), would bring together the Canadian and international horticulture industry in an extravaganza of garden and floral wonders to compete and do business while attracting millions of visitors and tourists. Based on previous editions of similar exhibitions and preliminary analysis for Ontario, it is anticipated that

Flora Ottawa 2017, operating over a 150-day period, from May 13 to October 9, 2017, and targeting to attract 3 million visitors, will host more than 300 meetings, conventions and trade shows attended by delegates from the Canadian and international horticultural industry, create over 4,000 jobs and generate a combined economic impact of over $500 million. The working concept for Flora Ottawa 2017 - International Horticultural Exhibition, contemplates using sites along the UNESCO designated Rideau Canal: the proposed Canadensis Botanical Garden site on the western shore of Dow’s Lake, the Queen Juliana Park and the new Lansdowne Park with a Flora Plaza, akin to an Olympic Plaza, at Marion Dewar Plaza. The Commissioners’ Park, Central Experimental Farm, Dominion Arboretum, Garden of

Michel-Antoine Renaud, Managing Director of the Canadian Ornamental Horticulture Alliance. AIPH has accepted Landscape Ontario’s proposal that would see Ottawa becoming the host city of the International Horticultural Exhibition in 2017, contingent on approving a final proposal at their spring meeting in April, 2014. “Ottawa is a natural horticultural destination by virtue of

the Provinces and other sites within the region could function as satellite venues offering various Flora activities and events. It is also expected that all Canadian Provinces and Territories as well as 10 U.S. States and over 30 countries would participate in Flora Ottawa 2017. In the spirit of its theme “Celebrating our Landscape”, the exhibition would also embrace the Capital Region community by providing opportunities for neighbourhoods, schools, business associations, arts and cultural groups to participate and engage in a creative and exciting array of programs and activities. “As the nation’s capital, Ottawa and the Sabine Gibbins National Capital Region are uniquely sabine.gibbins@metroland.com positioned to reflect Canadian culture News – The roster for this spring’s and identity through natural spaces and urban landscapes and host the annual Ottawa ComicCon is growing.

Heroes from all sides of the fantasy fiction world will gather then, engage with audiences and fans for the annual convention. Organizers promise this year to be a bigger and better event with more emphasis on the horror factor, said ComicCon spokesperson Leeja Murphy. Many horror, science fiction, and fantasy celebrity guests have already been added to the list and are just the beginning of many guest announcements. In late January, ComicCon announced Breaking Bad break-out star and villain Giancarlo Esposito would headline the top of this year’s celebrity guests. Esposito played Gustavo “Gus” Fring in the hit AMC series, which ended its run in late 2013. Esposito is also a central character on Revolution, playing yet another rogue, this time as Major Tom Neville in a world fueled by warring republics who cope with living with no electricity. He’s joined by Star Trek’s Karl Urban, who plays Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy in the recent Star Trek movies. He also plays Eomer in the second and third instalments of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Urban also plays main character John Kennex in the television series Almost Human. Both are making their first appearance at this year’s ComicCon. Christopher Lloyd, best known as the beloved Emmett “Doc” Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy, opposite Michael J. Fox, is also one of the featured guests at this year’s event. Other guests include Evil Dead actor Bruce Campbell, Canadian actress Amanda Tapping of Stargate SG1, and hockey-mask wearing Jason Voorhees himself, Kane Hodder, from Friday the 13th: Part VII: The New Blood. There will also be something for avid comic book fans, including a roster of guest artists spearheaded by The Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore, who served as the interior artist when the series launched over 10 years ago, but stayed on as the cover artist for more than two years. Tickets are available ranging in price from $20 to $195. For tickets, a full glance at all guests and updates, please visit www.ottawacomiccon. com.

End of sexual abuse begins with men, says father Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Glen Canning has gone through the worst thing a father can experience. He lost his 17-year-old daughter Rehtaeh, not even a year ago. She died of suicide after being the target of online bullying, as photos circulated of an alleged gang rape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our daughter was ridiculed to death,â&#x20AC;? he told a crowd at the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community discussion at city hall on Feb. 4. The Nova Scotian father was the keynote speaker. While the boys involved were never charged with raping his daughter, two are facing charges for distributing child pornography. Canning showed a message Rehtaehâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother received from one of the boys, where he tried to say she gave consent despite having to be helped to the window of the bedroom to vomit because she was so intoxicated. But instead of talking about how women can avoid sexual assaults, Parsons spoke about how we can prevent men from raping. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Men need to stand up, they need to recognize, they need to stop it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our system is really busted right now, and men are the reason. But men can be the solution.â&#x20AC;? He shared a message the father of one of the boys who allegedly raped his daughter posted on a Facebook page supporting the boys, that said the boy was just like his dad. That was one of the discussion questions

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

Glen Canning, Rehtaeh Parsons father, speaks at an event held at city hall. Rehteah died of suicide last April in Nova Scotia after photos of an alleged gang rape were posted on social media sites. Her father is now an advocate for fighting violence against women. breakout groups later talked about: how can parents raise their boys to prevent them from being violent towards women. He also spoke about the bystander mentality when it comes to sexual assault, especially when it involves alcohol. In many cases where a woman is assaulted, police go back to interview witnesses who saw the intoxicated wom-

an taken from the party or bar by a complete stranger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bystander mentality when it comes to violence against women,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t someone say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where are you going? What are you doing?â&#x20AC;? In his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, she was blamed as the victim. Cruel comments were made on social

media, many too vulgar to put in print. And Canning said the culture that allows those type of photos to be circulated and laughed at needs to end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was disbelieved to death. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a system that needs to stop, that needs to end,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really do hope men start owning this, and men start being part of the solution.â&#x20AC;?

Western LRT alignment questions prompt meeting Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

News – With the western segment of the city’s LRT plan not yet set in stone, frustration was in the air during a Jan. 22 meeting between the city and NCC board members. The city wants to use a narrow portion of the federal land that contains the John A. Macdonald Parkway to bring the LRT line from Dominion Station to the future Cleary Station near Richmond Road, a decision that has raised past objections from the NCC. The federal body claims the use of a 1.2-kilometer stretch of its land (near the inner border) for a partially buried transit line would impede access to the riverfront and spoil views. The city wants the budget for segment between Tunney’s Pasture and Baseline Station to remain under $1 billion, with the cost currently standing at $980,000 following alterations to an earlier plan that saw a larger portion of the

stretch placed below grade. Deputy city manager Nancy Shepers spoke on behalf of the city, but the NCC members quickly discovered they wouldn’t be getting all the information they hoped for. Specifically, what the cost would be for burying the entire length of the 1.2-kilometer stretch west of Dominion station. Shepers didn’t have that number, stating that an environmental assessment for the corridor was ongoing. The city, she said, is also looking at combining the Dominion-Baseline project with the Pinecrest-to-Bayshore LRT leg identified in its 2013 Transportation Master Plan (which was passed last November). The stretch to Bayshore is meant to eliminate OC Transpo buses on the Queensway, and would cost $396 million. BAIT AND SWITCH

Board member Kay Stanley called this move

20 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, February 27, 2014

a form of ‘bait and switch’ – a “ploy to gain something favourable” by drawing attention elsewhere. “We were dealing with apples before, and now we’re dealing with apples and oranges,” said Stanley, adding that the architects of the provincial environmental assessment might not be well versed in the federal laws that apply to the land in question. “This is not new - the only section that’s new is the extension out to Bayshore,” replied Shepers, adding that modifications to the plan for the Lincoln Fields transfer station were made to minimize impacts to the corridor. “WE believe that by working with the NCC we can respect the (funding) enveloper…it’s going to be a challenge and we’re going to have to be resourceful.” Shepers said the city’s goal for the project was to minimize impacts on the landscape and the experience of transit users. Board member Jason Sordi attempted to

tone down some of the frustration in the room by highlighting what he saw as positives. “In spite of all the issues raised, there’s a lot of good stuff here,” said Sordi. “Maybe it’s not coming across, as we appreciate how the city is trying to meet us halfway.” Sordi proposed holding regular meetings – “touch points” – as both the city and NCC wait for the results of the EA process. Board member Robert Tennant agreed that both parties need to hear from both sides of the issue, and on a more frequent basis, especially if it becomes clear “a change in direction is needed.” Before ending the meeting, NCC board chair Russell Mills proposed creating a motion to add to the list of requests the NCC has already asked of the city in regards to the project. The motion calls on the city to share with the NCC all details regarding LRT corridor impacts and the mitigation measures proposed by the city to offset the impacts.

Committee of the whole meeting looks at using surplus to bridge funding gap jennifer.mcintosh@ metroland.com

News - The Ottawa Public School boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee of the whole got a sneak peek at the 201415 budget on Feb. 11. The public consultation on the budget wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen until June, after the province announces the funding for the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four school boards, but the OCDSB is already looking at the pressures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have to assume there will be very little growth in the funding,â&#x20AC;? Mike Carson, the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superintendent of facilities told the trustees. The provincial deficit, coupled with the commitment to full-day kindergarten being in all schools by fall of 2015, will mean a crunch at all levels of government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make priorities,â&#x20AC;? Carson said. While the school board, ended their 2013 fiscal year in August, with a $45.8 million surplus, there are pressures in the form of future employee benefits, as well as increased transportation costs for bussing high school students in

the Urban Transit Area and pressures related to increased costs for snow removal because of the heavy snowfall this year. There will be an additional 2,000 full-day kindergarten students starting in September 2015. Carson said allocating $7 million for the future employee benefits should leave the board with a surplus of roughly $32 million. Carson also said the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic plan would be included in the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; meaning boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities in terms of student well-being an academic per-

formance would be reflected. Board chair Jennifer McKenzie said she was happy to see the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic plan as part of the discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to see us in a place where our strategic plan dictates the budget,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding she would be looking for funding to work with the Youth Services Bureau on a project to engage street kids and get them back in classrooms. Several trustees were concerned about keeping the surplus down to ensure continued funding levels from the province.

Theresa Kavanagh, who represents the zone that corresponds with the municipal Bay Ward, asked if a surplus was a record amount. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am just worried the board might get punished for being good with the books, by getting diminished funding,â&#x20AC;? she said. Rob Campbell, who represents the zone that corresponds with the RideauVanier and Capital wards, asked if the surplus should be limited to two per cent of the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue. Carson said the surplus is often used for capital projects

 

       

   

    



 







   

   

          

                                                  

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with permission by the Ministry of Education â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and would ideally be around 3 per cent, or $24 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us to get so dazed by the surplus that we open up the tap and let the dollars fall in the sink,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. S h i r l e y Seward, who represents the zone that corresponds with River Ward, said she will hold budget consultations in her ward.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to look at closing the gap for students in special education,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is also a desperate need for EAs (educational assistants).â&#x20AC;? Lynn Scott, whose area covers Stittsville, West Carleton and RideauGoulbourn, said she thought the budget might be a good time to look at realigning the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a

NCC wants to add spice to Ottawa River waterfront Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - The National Capital Commission wants to enliven the shores of the Ottawa River, and is calling on residents to submit any ideas to help with the process. On Feb. 5 the NCC issued a request for “innovative proposals” that would serve to “bring more vitality to open public spaces along the shorelines of the historic Ottawa

River.” Proposals will be accepted from businesses, community members and non-profit organizations, as well as local arts groups, until March 14 of this year. The “fun-making” project mirrors one launched two years ago for the land bordering the Rideau Canal, which, like the Ottawa River shoreline, is federal property managed by the NCC. The 2012 effort to animate the canal resulted in 42 proposals being fielded, with five winners being selected.

A “temporary beach” and adjacent temporary outdoor bar were among the new canal amenities that emerged as a result of the initiative. In recent years, sentiment has been growing in the community that Ottawa – and by association, the NCC – needs to heighten the profile of the river that gives the city its name. This recent effort by the NCC appears to aim to do just that, by drawing tourists and residents to the river’s shores with unique proj-

We were away and the cats really did play Lifestyle - Most parents, upon their return from vacation, look for signs that the kids had a party. In our case, the party animals were the cats. Actual felines. We have two self-proclaimed housecats (we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invite them; they just moved in) and two barn cats that are quite feral but reserve the right to come in and eat / sleep / poop in the nice litter box anytime they want. If you suspect the barn cats have entered the house, you cannot close the door to the basement. Otherwise you will be cutting off their access to food, water and, more importantly, toilet facilities. Denying them this access can have disastrous results. My daughter and her husband were watching the house in our absence and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect them to go hunting for feral cats every time they want to leave so I told them to just leave the basement door open. So the cats had full run of the house. For a week. When I returned, here is what I saw. A ďŹ ne cloud of white fur had settled on every ďŹ&#x201A;at surface of the house, including the hardwood ďŹ&#x201A;oor, kitchen table and countertops, couch

cushions and throw pillows. The dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blanket, once blue and orange, was also coated in ďŹ&#x201A;uffy white, leading me to believe this was the bed of choice for the felines last week. The bread bag featured small bite marks that had no doubt been made by sharp little cat teeth. The butter (left out on the counter for some reason) had paw marks, scratchy tongue tracks and cat hair in it. After throwing these things in the garbage I continued my inspection. Having played surrogate mama to thirtyseven kittens several seasons ago, (when I was taming them for adoption) Sheila the diminutive housecat likes to continue in this role by carrying small kitten-sized toys around in her mouth. She goes digging in the toy box downstairs and pulls out anything that is about the size of a small kitten. Then she tucks them in strange places around the house. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite endearing, really. After our vacation, nearly every

wrinkle in the dog bed contained a small plush toy. They Accidental Farmwife were also deposited on stairs, behind the toilet, on kitchen chairs and there was even a small purple elephant in the bowl of water at the feeding station. I guess she thought it might be thirsty. She does this often. Then she drags the wet toy around the house, leaving puddles on the hardwood ďŹ&#x201A;oor for me to slip in. I also found puddles of water around each of the toilets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; obviously another favourite place to play on a long winter afternoon. I guess the red feathers that I bought at the Third World Bazaar look a little too much like a bird because they had been tackled, plucked and left to die on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor. The bird-watching station on the windowsill next to the outdoor feeder was obviously a popular spot as my candles and other knick-knacks had been pushed aside to make room for some-

one who left large tufts of fur behind. Probably the catsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favourite spot to play in the house is the carpeted staircase. I think they imagine they are ancient warrior cats, defending the plateau of their people as they race up and down the steps, digging their claws into the rug as they go. After a week of this unsupervised play (I usually cut it off after round one as it can be quite destructive), the carpet now has some frayed, loose edges and there is white fur in the creases that even the vacuum cleaner cannot reach. Sigh. Thank goodness I had the foresight to close all the bedroom doors before I left. I can just imagine what my bed would look like if the cat brigade had had their way with it. The cats certainly appear to have had a good time with the house all to themselves for a week. But all good things come to an end and it is possible to have too much of a good thing. The moment I opened the sliding door to the back porch, out they all went. And I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen them since. I guess they have a slight case of kitty cabin fever.

School board launches appeal to get Innovation Drive school Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The Ottawa Carleton District School Board had already appealed the city’s rejection of a new school at the Kanata tech park before the decision was even made on Feb. 11. Planning committee agreed with city staff and refused the school board’s application for an exception to allow an elementary school to be built on Innovation Drive in an area surrounded by industrial facilities, as well as the new Richcraft Recreation Complex. The school board already appealed the matter to the Ontario Municipal Board before the committee met because the city didn’t meet deadlines for considering the application. That’s because city staff failed to notify all surrounding land owners about the proposal. At least one of those landowners – Nordion Inc. – mounted strong opposition to the proposed school, which it said could prevent the 50-year-old business from expanding. The company, which employs 400 people, produces medical isotopes and sterilization equipment. Nordion isn’t the only nearby business licensed to process nuclear materials. Best Theratronics employs 180 people to produce nuclear medical supplies at its facility at 413 March Rd. Peter Elder of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission said there would be no safety issues with putting a school near the facilities. The issue, he said, would be one of perception. As the area around the nuclear facilities

The Ottawa Carleton District School Board is appealing the city’s decision to reject its request for an exception to allow a school in an industrial park. In the meantime, the board will work with Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson to see if another property can be readied in time for construction. becomes more mixed, the concerns from the public increase even though the safety hasn’t changed, Elder said. Representatives from Nordion and Best Theratronics agreed and said the public perception of non-existent safety issues could make it difficult for them to expand their businesses or apply for new nuclear materials licenses in

the future. Jennifer McKenzie, chairwoman of the school board, said parents aren’t worried about the nearby businesses. “We have heard little concern about it being next door to a nuclear facility,” she said. Parents are mostly concerned about having access to a school for their children in an area that has a severe shortage of classroom space, she said. Kathleen Willis, a land-use planner hired by the school board, said it’s not unheard of for schools to be located in industrial areas. There are two in Ottawa alone, she said, and school board lawyer Paul Webber added that the Ontario Municipal Board ruled in favour of a school board in Kingston that wanted to build a school under very similar circumstances. While the distance between the property lines for Nordion’s land and the school site is smaller than normally required – 63 metres instead of 70 – Willis said the actual school building will be 126 m away from Nordion’s property. It’s separated from the school by a wooded area and Shirley’s Brook. The board’s vice chair, Shirley Seward, said the board bought the property and the province gave it funding because both assumed it wouldn’t be a problem to get the city to rezone the land. The city just built the new Richcraft Centre recreation facility nearby and city planners didn’t raise any issues during a private pre-consultation, Seward said. “The school board can go out and build a child-care centre, but it can’t build a school,” Seward said.

The board bought two pieces of land, 6.7 hectares in total, located at 2101 and 3101 Innovation Dr. from BlackBerry last summer. That was a “calculated risk,” Willis said. The sale was not conditional on the board getting the land rezoned. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson pointed out there is already a site zoned for a school in the KNL lands, off Terry Fox Drive. The school board moved on to focus on the Innovation Drive site because the original location couldn’t be ready and serviced by water and electricity in time for the provincial funding deadline, McKenzie said. But Wilkinson insisted three of the four outstanding issues have been resolved and she is confident the site could be ready to go in the next few months. McKenzie said the board will work with the city to find a solution, but it will continue to pursue the Innovation Drive appeal as a backup plan. “We would like to work co-operatively with the city to find a site that can meet the needs of students within the time frame of our funding,” she said. The new school, proposed as two-storeys with 26 classrooms and 5,489 square metres of floor space, must be complete by Sept. 2015 or else lose provincial funding. It takes about a year to build a school, McKenzie said. The board has $12 million in funding earmarked for the north Kanata school, money announced last year by the Ministry of Education.

United Way makes plea for donations Campaign still needs to raise money to help 19,000 lives in city Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Kayla Alan and her son Anthony participate in the Youville Centre’s Me, My Baby, Our World program on Feb. 4. can do for a child in a homework club. “What has been so fascinating, working on this campaign, is seeing the difference that one small donation can make,” Cook said. The money raised is tied to what the United Way defined as measurable goals -- money solely for the United Way’s organizations which requested funding through designated priorities. During the visit to the Me, My Baby, Our World program Cook and Hyder met with a group of young mothers who were singing and dancing with their little ones. In the past three years, United Way has allocated $50,853 for its baby program and its youth mental health program. Program facilitator, Clarissa Arthur said she knows first hand the difference donations can make. Arthur knew the situation well before

taking over the role of child development coordinator at the Youville Centre. As a graduate from the centre in 1996, Arthur said without the organization, she would not be where she is today. She arrived at the centre with her three-anda-half-month-old son in the fall of 1995. She graduated from the program in the spring of 1996, and since has continued with her education, taking child and youth programming in college. “I saw the job posting and just had to come back,” Arthur said. “Being a part of Youville R0272275076

News - There are six weeks left in this year’s United Way Ottawa campaign and the organization is making a plea to donors to help out the lives of 19,000 fellow residents. The charitable group launched its 2013-14 Community Campaign at the end of September last year with a different kind of goal from previous years, asking Ottawa donors to help raise $21 million, specifically targeted at improving the lives of a set number of individuals. According to the United Way, if the goal of the campaign is reached, 76,000 lives will be changed. “We don’t want to leave anybody behind and United Way will continue to be there with our partners -- whether they are people facing a crisis in their lives, isolated seniors, or children and youth who benefit from homework help or social activities after school. All of them deserve our support,” said Barbara Crook, United Way’s campaign co-chairwoman. Currently, the campaign has raised $16 million -- or enough money to help out 56,000 lives. Cook and fellow co-chairman Goldy Hyder attended a United Way-funded program at the Youville Centre on Feb. 4 in hopes of creating enthusiasm for the last-minute campaign push. Cook said the remaining $5 million could enable something like allowing 2,600 homework club students to study or providing help for young mothers who attend the Youville Centre’s Me, My Baby, Our World class. A philanthropist and director of the Danbe Foundation, Cook is no stranger to helping out fundraisers, or donating to a cause. In the past, Cook said her foundation has made large contributions to specific causes, but with United Way, Cook said she has seen what exactly $2

is life-changing for every girl who comes here and now I get to meet with them, show them pictures of my son and daughter and let them know I was once where they were.” Arthur spends her time between meeting new students and facilitating programs like Me, My Baby, Our World program. Singing along with the other mothers and children, the program helps mothers learn how to parent in a collaborative setting Arthur said. “This is a place where moms can talk to other moms about what is going on with their baby, get advice and work on things together,” Mother of two young sons, Julia Huard said the Me, My Baby, Our World program has helped her connect with her youngest son, Landon. “He loves it,” Huard said. A Vanier resident, Huard gets both her sons on the bus every morning to come to the Youville Centre. Huard said the centre has been an amazing opportunity for her. “This program doesn’t just help you out with school, it’s so much more than that,” Huard said. “I learn how to play with my kids, how to feed them -- this program brings moms together.” The centre reported that a total of 43 lives were changed thanks to United Way’s investment in Youville Centre’s parenting program and between July 1, 2012 and March 31, 2015, Youville Centre will receive a total of $65,900 for this program thanks to United Way donors’ support. The community campaign will wrap up on March 31, 2014.

Sweet potato, maple and pecan tarts a nice treat Make public institutions Lifestyle - These are somewhere between a butter tart and pumpkin pie but with a hint of maple syrup and toasted pecans — mmmm good. Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 37 minutes Makes: 24 tarts INGREDIENTS

• 1 medium Ontario Sweet Potato, about 12 oz (375 g) • 2 tbsp (25 mL) butter, melted • 2 eggs • 1 cup (250 mL) maple syrup • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla • Pinch salt • 24 3-inch (8 cm) frozen tart shells, thawed • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped toasted pecans

through. Let cool enough to handle; remove skin and mash with fork until smooth. Measure one cup (250 mL) and place in bowl. Whisk in butter, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla and salt until smooth. Bake tart shells on baking sheet, in batches if necessary, in 375°F (190°C) oven for five minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle pecans among partially baked shells, gently pushing down any puffed-up pastry. Divide sweet potato mixture among shells. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until filling is slightly puffed, almost set and pastry is lightly golden. Let cool on rack. Tip: Make filling in 4-cup (1 L) glass measuring cup and it will be easy to pour into tart shells.

News – A new law promoting local food in Ontario isn’t as strong as it could be, but a tax credit for food bank donations offers a hefty consolation prize, farmers say. The Local Food Act passed last fall in the provincial legislature and aims to promote food grown, harvested and processed in the province. The new legislation is part of a strategy to make more local food available in markets, schools, cafeterias, grocery stores and restaurants, according to a statement from the agriculture ministry. The act includes a 25 per cent tax credit for farmers who donate their surplus harvest to food banks and other free food providers like school nutrition programs, homeless shelters and seniors’ programs. It also establishes an annual ‘Local Food Week’ in June. But some farmers are disappointed the act doesn’t include hard targets for local food purchasing. “There are still a lot of things they could do,” said organic farmer Robin Turner, who operates Roots and Shoots farm in Manotick Station. “(The law) doesn’t have any requirements for institutional spending.” He said he would have liked to see public institutions like hospitals, long-term care facilities and government cafeterias subject to minimum local food purchasing requirements. “What we have said is, let’s work with our partners to make sure that the targets that are set are realistic,” said Premier Kathleen Wynne, who doubles as minister of agriculture, during house debate. “We want that creative tension, we want to be able to push each other, but we don’t want to be so prescriptive that it becomes burdensome for our partners – municipalities, for example.

Dunrobin athletes compete in Loppet Sports - Dunrobin residents braved a cold windy morning to complete the 36th edition of the Gatineau Loppet. Six team members, who all live on Armitage Avenue, competed in three endurance events over the Feb. 15-16 weekend. First timers and veteran racers logged thousands of kilometers training for the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am truly inspired by my neighbours who encouraged me to attempt my first

race, which was a great challenge, amazing event, and a great way stay in shape over a long cold winter,â&#x20AC;? said Greg Haycox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since moving to Armitage avenue in 2000 I have been surrounded by a neighbourhood of amazing athletes.â&#x20AC;? The annual cross country ski race, SUBMITTED which is held on the trails of Gatineau park, draws a field of more than 2,750 Armitage Avenue Running Club & Nordic Team is, from left, Greg Haycox (27km Freestyle), David elite and recreational skiers and has be- Brown (51km Classic and 51 Freestyle), Linda Martin (27km Freestyle), Kirk Ireland (27km FreeStyle), Paul Lefebvre (51km Freestlye), Barrie Ashworth (51km Freestyle), Laurie Ashworth (Absent). come the largest event in Canada.

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Family, friends and local supporters, above, gathered together at 5 a.m. Feb. 15 at the Almonte Legion to cheer on Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Perianne Jones as she skied in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross-country 4x5 km relay competition at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games. Baker Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provided coffee and muffins. Many visitors wore red and white to cheer on Canada. Jones and the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relay team, made up of Daria Gaiazova, Emily Nishika-

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; While she may not have medalled in her second Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Almonte native Perianne Jones helped the Canadian cross-country ski team put in a solid showing during the event Feb. 7 to 23. In her first race of the Olympics, the ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sprint free event, the 29-year-old Jones, who now lives in Canmore, Alberta, got through qualification in 23rd position (the top 30 skiers advance) with a time of 2:38:63. She then competed in the quarterfinals, posting a time of 2:38:66, but failed to advance further. She then prepared for the ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4x5km relay on Feb. 15 along with teammates Daria Gaiazova, Emily Nishikawa and Brittany Webster. Jones led off for Canada and finished her leg of the race in 14th, where they finished with a time of 59:13.6. Sweden won gold in the event, posting 53:02.7. Jones was cheered on by the Mississippi Mills community for that race, as support-

ers, family and friends gathered at the Royal Canadian Legion in Almonte at 5 a.m. to watch her compete. Throughout the Games, she kept her hometown close to her heart as her uniform bore the Town of Mississippi Mills logo, thanks to local fundraising support spearheaded by resident Jane Torrance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real honour to be able to wear my community logo on my sleeve, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure,â&#x20AC;? Jones said in an earlier email interview with the Canadian Gazette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a constant reminder of how many people have made this possible, and have believed in me since the very beginning.â&#x20AC;? In her final event on Feb. 19 along with Gaiazova, Jones led off the ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team sprint classic qualification round in 7th place, while Gaiazovaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ski brought Canada up to fifth. But as the race progressed, they both fell back. Jones finished sixth, while Gaiazova was fifth, bringing Canada to 11th place (with a time of 17:09.13) in the qualifiers, failing to move on. According to the Canadian Cross-Coun-

wa and Brittany Webster, finished 14th with a time of 59:13.6. Sweden won gold in the event, with a time of 53:02.7.

try Ski Association, Jones said this about the race: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have never seen it so spread out. It just shows how ridiculously hard this course is. My skis were good today. It was just tough out there.â&#x20AC;? During the Olympics, Jones and her fellow athletes abstained from using social media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;ŚOur team has decided together that it is best to stay away from all social media, and blogging for the duration of the Olympics,â&#x20AC;? she explained in a post on her blog periannejones.blogspot.ca. dated Feb. 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many rules around what you can and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say and can and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take photos of during the Games. It just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth getting thrown out of the Olympics for a small slip up in a Facebook or Twitter post. That being said I have been appreciating all of the support thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been coming my way, and will be sure to fill you in after the Games are over!â&#x20AC;? Back in 2010 at the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, Jones finished 41st in the ladies sprint, 15th in the 4 x 5km team relay and 56th in the team pursuit.

Calabogie Peaks site of prestigious U16 race Anne Lefebvre Calabogie Ski Racing Club

R0012562103

Sports - Calabogie Peaks was the site for the annual U16 Art Tommy Memorial Race Feb. 8 and 9. The long-standing event is named after the late but great founder of Ottawa’s Tommy & Lefebvre Ski Store, Art Tommy. The race is a Super Combined, where athletes race a Super G in the morning and a Slalom in the afternoon. The times are then combined for an overall score. The racers competed both Saturday and Sunday, and overall winners were announced as well as winners for each day. The U16s were well-prepared for the race, having taken part in Speed Camp at the Peaks

Feb. 5-7. Speed camp prepares the racers to ski at the high speeds required in Super G, and they learn how to take jumps, optimize their air and land pace, and maximize their overall swiftness. Thanks to incredible snowmaking and hill maintenance at the Peaks, the athletes were able to train in fantastic conditions. All of that hard work paid off for Calabogie Ski Racing Club’s racers. On the girls’ side, Aylen Ferguson of Carp blasted down the Super G course and applied her technique in the Slalom to finish with a career-best sixth place Saturday. Combined with a solid result on Sunday, Aylen ending up hitting the podium for the first time – fifth place for combined score. Jenna Wissing of Ottawa also achieved a

personal best Saturday, coming in 18th. Grace Gaffney of Deep River came in a respectable 26th in the highly competitive field. The girls can all take pride in the fact that the massive Super G jump on the last pitch did not foil them, as it did for many of their competitors. The boys were also very successful. Alex Duff of Pembroke was behind the field following his Super G run Sunday, but pulled off a spectacular Slalom to hoist himself up to third

place. Connor Maclean of Manotick threw it all out there with a 26th-place finish, while Travis Reid of Bath – having just returned from the sunny south – nicely adjusted to winter by finishing 38th. In other action, a contingent of U12 racers journeyed all the way to Quebec City Feb. 1-2 for the annual Defi Alpin Race at Le Relais Ski Hill. See CARP, Page 38

Carp racer places 4th Continued from Page 34

Notable results came from Wyatt Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew who placed third overall out of 100+ racers, and Sam Alexander of Carp who placed fourth overall. All of the skiers raced well and enjoyed the novelty of attending such a large event. Feb. 1 found the U14 team tearing up the slalom course at Mont Cascades, Quebec. Hard-packed snow and sunshine made for a perfect race day. Sam Duff of Pembroke capitalized with another first-place finish. Sean Swayze of Braeside, Tyler Lefebvre of Calabogie and Connor Allen of Manotick stayed tight, finishing in 16th, 18th, and 20th respectively. Owen Barr of Carp cracked the top half with 26th, while Liam Maclean of Manotick continued to improve with a 32nd place. Aiden Keuninckx of Perth was close behind in 35th.

Jack Alexander of Carp literally left it all on the hill with incredible speed but two crashes. The girls were either heartbreak or glory. Sophia Tan sped to another podium finish with a fourth place, and Lauren CampbellBrunke was set join her when she straddled a gate and was disqualified. Alex Kerr of Kemptville displayed her fine form with a 20th place, and Jessica Earle of Ottawa smoothly slid into 30th. But Alyssa Steggall of Stittsville, Alexa Loudiadis of Ottawa and Emma Schreider of Kingston all faced a DNF result with a crash on one of their runs. However, with the girls’ positive attitudes, they are never down for long. Only a few races remain for each of the age groups, as they prepare for local championships and Provincials in just a few short weeks.

IN THE MATTER OF THE ONTARIO HERITAGE ACT

NOTICE OF PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW AND ADOPTION OF AN OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT BY THE CITY OF OTTAWA

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa, on February 12, 2014, established its intention to designate the 2659 Roger Stevens Drive under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value. Description of Property 2659 Roger Stevens Drive is a one and one half storey wood frame farmhouse with red brick cladding. The house was constructed in 1876 and is located west of the village of North Gower in former Marlborough Township in southwest Ottawa. Statement of Cultural Heritage Value 2659 Roger Stevens Drive has cultural heritage value for its association with the early settlement of Marlborough Township, design value as a good example of the Gothic Revival style and contextual value for its location in a rural setting. 2659 Roger Stevens Drive has cultural heritage value for its association with the Bradley family and the early settlement of the interior of Marlborough Township. The house was constructed in 1876 for Edward Dailey, replacing an earlier log house on the site, and was purchased by Moses Bradley in 1900. The Bradley family of Marlborough Township were one of a number of Irish Protestant who arrived in Carleton County in the mid-19th century and quickly prospered through a combination of hard work and excellent farmland. They were one of the pioneering families near the hamlet of Pierce’s Corners in the northern part of the township and Moses, followed by his son Charles, farmed the land until 1960. The house at 2659 Roger Stevens Drive has design value as a good example of the Gothic Revival style popular in rural Ontario in the late 19th century. The Gothic Revival style became popular in Ontario in the 1860s and quickly became popular for farmers as they replaced the log houses associated with initial settlement. Typical of the style are its L-shaped plan, dichromatic brickwork, decorative bargeboard and veranda. 2659 Roger Stevens Drive is important in retaining and reinforcing the existing agricultural character of this area of Ottawa. Set back from the road by a long drive, the house is physically and functionally linked to its surroundings.

Notice is hereby provided that the Council of the City of Ottawa passed Zoning By-law No. 2014-64 and adopted Official Plan Amendment No. 131 on the 12th day of February 2014. The Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment affects properties within the study boundary which includes the lands north and south of Scott Street from Northwestern Avenue to Bayview Road. More details on the properties affected by the Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law can be found at the Study’s website under Scott Street Community Design Plan: www.ottawa.ca/scottstreetcdp. The purpose of Official Plan Amendment No. 131 is to implement key directions of the Scott Street Community Design Plan into a Secondary Plan for the area. The Secondary Plan is the policy direction to guide the long term design and development of lands in the area such as land uses, building heights and density. The purpose of the Zoning By-law Amendment is to implement the zoning in the study area to reflect the Scott Street Secondary Plan. By-law No. 2014-63 will implement the Scott Street Secondary Plan. For further information on the above, please contact: Melanie Knight, Planner Tel: 613-580-2424, ext. 28439 E-mail: Melanie.Knight@ottawa.ca. Any person or public body who, before the Zoning By-law or the Official Plan Amendment were enacted, made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to City Council, may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board with respect to either the Zoning By-law or the Official Plan Amendment, by filing with the City Clerk of the City of Ottawa, a notice of appeal setting out their objection to the Zoning By-law or the Official Plan Amendment and the reasons in support of the objection. Each appeal must be accompanied by the Ontario Municipal Board’s prescribed fee of $125.00, which may be made in the form of a cheque payable to the Minister of Finance. A notice of appeal can be mailed to the City Clerk at 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, K1P 1J1, or by delivering the notice in person, to Ottawa City Hall, at the Information Desk in the Rotunda on the 1st floor, 110 Laurier Avenue West. A notice of appeal must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on the 19th day of March 2014. Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a Zoning by-law or an Official Plan amendment to the Ontario Municipal Board. A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group. However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.

OBJECTIONS Any person wishing to object to this designation may do so by letter, outlining the reasons for the objection and any other relevant information. This letter must be received by the Clerk of the City of Ottawa either by registered mail or personally delivered within 30 days of the publication of this notice. When a notice of objection has been received, the Council of the City of Ottawa will refer the matter to the Conservation Review Board for a Hearing and a Report. Lesley Collins, MCIP RPP Heritage Planner City of Ottawa Planning and Growth Management Department 110 Laurier Avenue West, 4th Floor Ottawa, ON K1P 1J1 Tel: 613-580-2424, ext. 21586 E-mail: lesley.collins@ottawa.ca

Should the Zoning By-law or the Official Plan Amendment be appealed, persons or public bodies who wish to receive notice of the Ontario Municipal hearing can receive such notice by submitting a written request to Melanie Knight, Planner with the City. Dated at the City of Ottawa this 27th day of February 2014. Clerk of the City of Ottawa City Hall 110 Laurier Avenue West Ottawa, ON K1P 1J1

R0012570517-0227

38 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, February 27, 2014

No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the Zoning By-law or the Official Plan Amendment were enacted, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Municipal Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson runs through the highlights of city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decisions over the past four years during a meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The mayor pointed out councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions to bring in a code of conduct, an integrity commissioner and other measures to avoid conflicts such as those in other major Canadian municipalities, such as Toronto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did it because we wanted to, not because of scandal,â&#x20AC;? he said. Watson, second from left, was a featured speaker at a meeting of the West Ottawa Board of Trade at the Holiday Inn & Suites Ottawa-Kanata on Tuesday, Feb. 11. Pictured above are, from left, Peter Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leary, Metroland East regional manager, Watson, Rosemary Leu, executive director of the board of trade and Rick Chase, chair of the board of trade.

a parliamentary fight for a national strategy on improving access to palliative and hospice care with his parliamentary motion M-456. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All across the country Canadians understand the importance of palliative care in their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a clear message for the Liberal and Conservative parties to join the NDP motion calling for the federal government to take a more active role in end-of-life care.â&#x20AC;? Additional highlights from the survey show that Canadians believe that end of life care: Helps a patient manage their choices along the way (93 per cent); Greatly reduces the stress and burden placed on the family (93 per cent); Improves quality of life for patients (94 per cent); Should be provided in the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setting of choice (93 per cent); and Should be integrated for all people with chronic, life-limiting conditions (90 per cent). Angus is now calling on this PanCanadian consensus be reflected in parliament so that the Canadian government can provide the badly needed leadership on this issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians see Ottawa has been missing in action on end-of-life care for too long and this survey shows a clear desire for change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My motion calls for the Federal government to play a key role in working with the Provinces and Territories on establishing best practises and targets that should be met. â&#x20AC;&#x153; The Harris/Decima survey was conducted for The Way Forward, a three year nation-wide initiative that is working with healthcare professionals and governments to integrate high quality hospice palliative care earlier into the ongoing care of Canadians with serious life-limiting illness.

But at least I had hair ribbons! And so I decided I would take two or three of my best ribbons, put them in a little paper bag, and hand them to the young girl at school. It was on one of the rare days she was at school, and I told her not to open the bag until she got home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No peeking,â&#x20AC;? I said. When I got home, I told Mother what I had done, and said I felt so good about it I was going to phone my best friend Velma and tell her about my good deed. Well, Mother told me to sit down, and I knew without a doubt, another lesson on life was coming. She had that look about her. And Mother said that when you did a good deed, if you told anyone about it, it erased the deed. I had a hard time grasping what she meant, since I knew I had done the deed, so how could it be erased? But Mother went on in great detail, telling me good deeds were no longer good deeds if you bragged about them. I still wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convinced, but, as always, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word was the law. And so I kept to myself my giving the ribbons to my young classmate at the Northcote School. When she next came to school, several days later, so I knew she was needed at home, her long black hair was tied high on her head, and there was one of the long ribbons from the brown paper bag I had given her. She gave me the biggest smile, and neither of us said a word. No one knew but the two of us how she came to have brightly coloured ribbons tying up her long dark hair. A warm feeling came over me, and I knew then what Mother meant when she said a good deed is erased if you brag about it. Another lesson learned, and this one that has stayed with me since that day Mother sat me down in the kitchen so many years ago.

ing to church every Sunday. And modesty was another thing she preached about. It took my sister Audrey to explain to me that the modesty Mother was preaching about had nothing to do with running around the house in our flourbag underwear, or taking our Saturday night bath in front of everyone in the kitchen, but had everything to do with bragging about ourselves. And certainly envy could lead us straight to Hell in a basket! And then came the day when I learned about still another lesson on life. It had to do with a young girl who went to the Northcote School. Rather, she went to the Northcote school when she could. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for her to miss several days in a row, and we all knew it had nothing to do with catching the measles or the whooping cough. It had everything to do with if she was needed at home. Even though she was only a few years older than I was, she was the oldest girl of a large family. And the chore of helping her mother often fell on her shoulders. We were poor like most other families around us ... deep in the Depression, but my sister Audrey said her family was even poorer than we were. Her father worked in the bush miles from their farm, and was often away for weeks at a time. That left her mother to tend the farm, leaving little time to look after the younger children. And so my little classmate, more often than not, had to stay at home to lend a hand. There was always a sadness about this young girl. You could see it in her face. She had long dark hair, and often she would tell me how she wished she had coloured ribbons like I had to tie it off her face. And I knew, without a doubt, there simply wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough extra money for hair ribbons to replace the elastic she used to tie her hair up in a knot on the top of her head. My hair ribbons were bought at Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store in Renfrew only if Mother had a few extra pennies from selling her wares door to door.

A Hundred Years On A Handshake Celebrating 100 years of M. Sullivan & Son as business leaders News - M. Sullivan & Son Limited, Canada’s oldest familyrun construction business, will showcase its first book, A Hundred Years on a Handshake, on Friday Feb. 28. The book was written by Brian Hanington and published by General Store Publishing House to help celebrate the Arnpriorbased business’ 100th anniversary. To commemorate the century of business success, a book launch will be held at the O’Brien Theatre in Arnprior at 4 p.m. Employees, clients, friends of the company and members of the public are invited to attend to talk to the Sullivan family, meet the author and acquire the book. A Hundred Years On A Handshake reveals what it took to turn one man’s obsession into a multi-generational legacy as larger-than-life characters - rooted in old-world ethics - helped shape the way business is done in Canada. More than just a riveting family history, the book is an entertaining guide for anyone wishing to create and sustain a successful and long-lasting company. Founded in 1914, M. Sullivan & Son Limited is a full-service construction company based in Eastern Ontario. In 1924, the year of its 10th anniversary, M. Sullivan & Son logged just $5,012 in revenues. Now in its 100th year, the firm sees more than $100 million in annual sales. GOOD JOB FOR LIFE

Collectively, the business has generated more than $4.7 billion in sales and 6,300 person years of employment to local con-

ARNPRIOR AND MCNAB-BRAESIDE ARCHIVES

The history of the Sullivan boys, including above Mort, Dom and Harry, and the 100 years of M. Sullivan & Son is chronicled in a new book, A Hundred Years On A Handshake - lessons in building a successful business, which will be unveiled this Friday, Feb. 28 in Arnprior at the O’Brien Theatre at 4 p.m.. tractors in Ontario, Nova Scotia and other provinces. Testament to the loyalty that the company has been able to inspire in its employees, many have worked at the business for decades. Gibby Tourangeau joined M. Sullivan & Son in 1943 and today remains a full-time employee of 72 years. M. Sullivan & Son has gained a reputation of being dedicated

to quality, and financial and corporate stability. It has a history of completing projects on time and on budget and for consistently meeting and exceeding quality and safety expectations. It has been recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies. For more information on the company, visit www. sullivan.ca. Hanington is a writer of histories, speeches, films and narrative fiction with a love of language and expression forged in a life of travel. President and founder of Stiff Sentences Inc. - the Canadian company of writers based in Ottawa - he writes for CEOs, ministers, movie stars and popes, and works with corporations around the world. Following a series of interviews with Tommy Sullivan in 2010 and 2011, Hanington spent three years researching, writing and designing A Hundred Years On A Handshake. “Far beyond its considerable economic impact, the tale of the Sullivans is that of a quintessential Canadian family doing business by staying tough as nails in its dealings and fiercely loyal to its people,” he said. “Confident, vocal, expert and tireless, the Sullivans have over a century become an influence as deep as any on the Canadian business landscape,” said Hanington. “The Sullivan family history is fascinating, and the business lessons their story imparts are invaluable.” He noted that anyone interested in creating or working for a highly successful, ethical company with happy employees will benefit greatly from reading the lively history of the Sullivan Family.

Curvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fitness machines to fall silent this Friday John Carter John.carter@metroland.com News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There have been plenty of sad faces around Arnprior Curves in the past two weeks. None sadder than Linda Daviesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The MacLarenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing resident and owner of the Arnprior fitness studio for women has decided to close the business a month before it was to enter its 13th year. The last day will be this

Friday, Feb. 28. It was a difficult decision for Davies, who feels strongly she has been providing a valuable service to the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a death in the family,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I won a million dollars in the lottery, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d keep it open. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important to help women keep fit.â&#x20AC;? However, finances dictated that it was time to close. At its peak, Arnprior Curves had 400 members, but lately that had dropped to about

On the wall beside her are many plaques of appreciation from organizations helped by donations from Curves over the years. ally grateful for their support.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so sad thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not been more support in town,â&#x20AC;? said Micheline Aubin, who has been coming to Curves for seven years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so convenient â&#x20AC;Ś you can come in at any time and get in shape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a nice facility, clean and always so tidy. And the service is great â&#x20AC;Ś she (Davies) is so helpful.â&#x20AC;? Davies is appreciative of her landlord, Sullivan and Son, who went out of their way to accommodate her when she moved Curves from Winners Circle to Madawaska Boulevard after the first five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a good run,â&#x20AC;? Davies says. Many women have enjoyed the benefits of exercise and the camaraderie found at Curves and Davies is worried that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t another local place theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to go. Curves catered to women of all ages and all sizes at convenient times and provided them a full body workout, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope they find something,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important to keep active.â&#x20AC;? Davies said it is unfortunate that the federal government doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t extend tax incentives designed to encourage youth to sign up for sports programs to cover fitness memberships as well. Some businesses give incentives to employees, but not many have taken them up on it, she noted. Arnprior Curves has contributed to Huntley Parish Hall many local charities, most prominently 3774 Carp Road to the Heart and Stroke Foundation as the host of several Big Bike for Heart Menu rides in town. At one point, Curves was entering three teams and raising Panckaes & real Maple Syrup $16,000 for the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had great team spirit,â&#x20AC;? she noted. Baked Beans It was a natural fit, she explained. Sausages â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heart disease is still the number one killer of women.â&#x20AC;?

She has been promoting fitness since teaching aerobics when she worked for Canada Post. She has also volunteered with seniors groups, helping their members keep mobile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a lot by owning my own business,â&#x20AC;? she said. As well, Curves ensured she was kept up-to-date in fitness trends and related areas.

120. And that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to pay the bills and franchise fees. Davies noted that January is usually a good month for generating new members, thanks to New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions. But this year, her membership actually fell in January. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an isolated problem. Curves outlets in Pembroke, Almonte, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, Perth, Westboro and Orleans have closed in the last few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been closing left and right,â&#x20AC;? she said, pointing to the economic doldrums and peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy lives as contributing to the drop in memberships. The branching out of Curves into diet programs and celebrity workouts hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helped, she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had our niche â&#x20AC;Ś we should have concentrated on that.â&#x20AC;? Davies feels badly for her employees, the various charities Curves has supported over the years and most of all her loyal clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m re-

Young women discuss barriers of entering local politics Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - In a room of 15 young women, four said they had considered the possibility of getting involved in local politics. A group of young women discussed the barriers they feel prevent them from seeking positions in municipal government during a meeting hosted by the Head Start for Young Women program, overseen by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, and the Ottawa Muslim Women’s Organization on Feb. 3 at the Richcraft Recreation Complex-Kanata. Some of the largest obstacles included the media’s portrayal of women, a lack of available resources and encouragement on getting involved, and a need for more female mentors. Aiman Baig, a Grade 12 student at Earl of March Secondary School, and Amina Egeh, a Carleton University student studying public affairs and policy management, facilitated the meeting with 15 young Muslim women, their parents, and members of the Muslim women’s group. Both Baig and Egah are participating in the Head Start program. “Democratic participation is very important to me,” said Egeh, adding she wants to “champion that cause for people of my age. “In Canada, we have such a low percentage of women participating in politics.” Members of Head Start are visiting schools and women’s organizations to identify and respond to barriers that prevent young women from engaging in civic society. The group will create and implement a project that addresses the barriers and present the conclusions at an event later this year. “I think it’s really important women get into leadership roles,” said Baig, who lives in Kanata Lakes. “Our opinions don’t always get heard.” The program has 21 female participants between the ages of 16 and 24 from across the city. Wilkinson is leading the national initiative – supported by the Federation for Canadian Municipalities – in the Kanata area. “I’ve found it very interesting to be involved and hear what young women have to say,” said Wilkinson. “(The members) are leading sessions, getting people to speak out.”

“I never thought of myself in the shoes of a politician,” said a participant. “For a woman it’s an uphill battle because she has to fight against a lot of stereotypes to begin with,” said another. A number of attendees cited the media as a large obstacle – saying it doesn’t display a lot of women in politics. When it does, the focus is less on policy and more on physical attributes; Hillary Clinton, former US secretary of state and senator, and the media’s obsession with her pantsuits was used as an example. “You never look at a man and criticize his suit,” said one of the participants. Other barriers mentioned included a lacklustre high school civics class, few female mentors and role models, lack of time, the pressures of

raising a family, and little information on how to get involved readily available. “If something bothers you, this means you should go into politics,” said Sajjad Khan, a father of three girls, to the room. “I think you are well prepared to take on these challenges.” Politics is involved no matter what stream of employment people go into, he said, adding it’s important to get involved, to seek opportunities and gain experience. “If you have the passion and you really want something, you make it work – make sacrifices, find balance,” said OMWO president Shano Bejkosalaj. “You have to sacrifice no matter what you’re doing.” Wilkinson, who has had a long career in politics, said things have changed since she first

got involved. Ottawa city council is now made up of 25 per cent women (six out of 24 council positions), although the Federation for Canadian Municipalities would prefer to see that number at a minimum of 30 per cent. “I was the very first woman to ever run in this area,” Wilkinson said. “Things can change. You know who’s going to make the change? All of you and your friends.” Attendee Asha Abdul Wahab said that young women need to research and gather information to become involved. “It’s important for you to be wise and know what you’re standing up for,” she said. “Fight with your knowledge.” For more information on the Head Start for Young Women program, visit fcm.ca.

Lifestyle - Paddling, hiking and biking trails can generate new tourism revenues and foster economic development, improve physical and mental well-being, increase mobility for local residents, and foster connectedness among neighbouring communities. Health benefits of trails are particularly important for Renfrew County residents, who tend to have poorer health status than the provincial average. Ontario government officials recently launched an effort to enhance these benefits by updating and refining the provincial trails strategy. Representatives of a number of Renfrew County groups with interests in tourism, hiking, cycling, paddling, winter sports and health provided input to this process at a meeting

Participants at the Ottawa meeting strongly agreed that the updated provincial trails strategy should highlight active transportation as one of the benefits of trail development. Renfrew County councillors for voting unanimously this January to develop an active transportation policy and to include funding for active transportation projects in the county budget. County of Renfrew officials have previously taken steps towards developing a countywide trail strategy. They organized a series of four public meetings on trails in 2006. A draft report completed in February 2007 summarizes the results of these meetings, describes the County’s network of trails as they existed at that time and provides details on the benefits of trails.

since the 2007 report include the “east side” trails constructed by volunteers at the Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre, the Opeongo Hills Nordic Ski Club trails developed by volunteers in the Brudenell area, the Manitou Mountain and Griffith Uplands trail systems developed by the Township of Greater Madawaska, and the County’s investments in paving shoulders to make roads safer and more attractive for pedestrians and cyclists. The 2007 report recognizes the county’s varied natural areas afford great destinations for trail users, and that proximity to Ottawa is a plus in terms of potential tourism revenues. It also puts special focus on former rail lines. These could form the core of a well-connected trail network. Making them available for year-round use would be a major benefit to people living in the County and would attract more visitors from nearby areas with greater populations. The County has taken a significant step in this direction by purchasing the Renfrew-toCalabogie segment of the old K&P rail line and developing it as a multi-use trail, and is actively pursuing other initiatives related to former rail lines. Another County of Renfrew advantage is an abundance of water: lakes, rivers and wetlands, including the Ottawa River itself. Participation is growing in group events on the County’s major waterways such as the ‘Celebrate Our River’ excursion series, including the annual June paddle from Wilber Lake to Eganville on the Bonnechere, and what may become annual paddles from Calabogie to Burnstown on the Madawaska, and from Renfrew to the Ottawa River on the Bonnechere. (Paddling and other guides are available on the BRWP website, www. BonnechereRiver.ca under the Nature in Your Neighbourhood tab, and on the ORI website, www.ottawariverinstitute.ca.) Another worthwhile project would be to identify entry points and provide trail connections among and within the County’s 18 provincial parks and 10 conservation reserves (see www.naturenotebook. ca). Well over half these areas protect portions of waterways and wetlands, but only limited information is available about how to access them. Some – like the Little Mississippi River, Constant Creek, Silver Creek, and Black Donald Creek – remain largely well-kept secrets.

Residential school survivor Viola Thomas chronicles her residential school experience with native studies students at Arnprior District High school recently. It was an eye opening experience for the students.

Residential school survivor speaks to ADHS students Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was taken from my family when I was five years old.â&#x20AC;? Arnprior District High School native studies students heard first-hand about the lasting negative effects of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential schools when residential school survivor Viola Thomas spoke to them in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most Canadians donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an appreciation of our shared history,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas, who works with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want Canadians to have a better understanding of how that shared history has affected First Nations people and a better appreciation of the pain a lot of indigenous people are dealing with. The ownership of this history belongs with all Canadians,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. Her work with the Truth Commission and her presentations to school and various organizations and groups is a result of her desire to raise awareness of the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Residential schools were

not unique to Canada,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas, who is from Kamloops, B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They existed all over the world.â&#x20AC;? The schools are known to have done significant harm to Aboriginal children who were removed from their families and deprived of their ancestral languages and culture. Many of the students suffered physical and sexual abuse at the hands of staff and other students. Following the largest classaction suit in Canada, the federal government offered a public apology in June 2008. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established around this time to further delve into the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many children died because of poor nutrition, tuberculosis, suicide or froze to death running away,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. She told the students to imagine being taken from their home and families and shipped off to one of the schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 18,000 youth from different reservations were forced to attend the

schools,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. Attendance was mandatory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a choice,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And parents who tried to protect their children from going were imprisoned.â&#x20AC;? Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mother attended a residential school from Grades 1-4 and many of her siblings shared her fate. Thomas is one of 16 children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of the 16 children, half of us went to the same residential school my mother did,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You had to stay,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You only could go home at Christmas break and Easter break.â&#x20AC;? The school Thomas attended was built in 1890 by the Catholic Church of Canada. Half of the day was spent on the basics of math, reading and writing and social studies. The other half for boys involved mechanics and carpentry and for girls sewing, laundry and cooking, explained Thomas. There was no trace of the familiar First Nations languages, traditions or culture.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intent of the schools was to kill the Indian in the child,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. She reminded students of those responsible for the schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a policy of Sir John A. Macdonald,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hope is Canadians will also know his racist history. His attitude towards indigenous people was very much seeing them as inferior.â&#x20AC;? Part of the Truth Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate is trying to

determine exactly how many children died in the 150 years residential schools operated in Canada. The effects of the schools on First Nations people are tragic and long-lasting. High rates of incarceration, addiction, mental health issues and children in the welfare system are among the problems faced by aboriginal communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were always told we were stupid, we were inferior,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We grew

up timid and fearful, with no sense of trust.â&#x20AC;? Her view of others was coloured by her residential school experiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to think all white people were bad people,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. One of the things that helped her through those tough times was reading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I became a reader of books. That was my safe haven,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was glad I had the ability to lose myself in literature.â&#x20AC;?
