The Battle of the Blades may no longer be on television but a Battle of the Blades will be happening in Carp March 25. That’s when eight pairs of skaters will be competing against each other with figure skating routines, with each pair consisting of a skater from the West Carleton Skating Club and a skater from the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association. This replicates the popular TV program Battle of the Blades which used to feature a figure skater with an NHL hockey player. This Battle of the Blades in Carp will be held at the W. Erskine Johnston Arena Saturday, March 25 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., with everyone welcome to attend. It is being held in support of the West Carleton Food Access Centre, so those attending are asked to donate a nonperishable food item or make a monetary donation at the door for admission. In this Battle of the Blades in Carp, each skating pair will perform a two to three-minute routine which will be judged by a panel of three judges. These judges will include West Carleton-March city Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, West Carleton Minor Hockey Association president Hylton Jorssen and West Carleton Skating Club coach Karen Pearce. The top-three pairs in this Battle of the Blades competition will receive trophies while the other pairs will receive medals. See ON MARCH 25, page 2

Barley Shakers fill Memorial Hall in Carp with music BY JOHN CURRY


It was all thanks to the Barley Shakers, a musical group numMusic, much with an Irish bering 14 for this particular gig flair, filled Memorial Hall in which was hosted by the Huntley Carp on Tuesday evening, March Township Historical Society.


The Barley Shakers, who filled the stage and then some at the Memorial Hall, included not only fiddles but also three guitars, a flute, a harp, a keyboard and a bodhran among other per-

cussion instruments. And, for the last tune of the one and a halfhour performance, leader James Caldwell played a banjo ukulele. A number in the audience wore green for the occasion while

a few in the Barley Shakers sported green ties, either bow ties or regular ones. The evening was one of toe tapping, knee slapping, hand clapping music, lots with an Irish flavour such as Danny Boy, Whiskey in the Jar, Whiskey Before Breakfast, When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, Tripping Up The Stairs, My Wild Irish Rose and The Wild Rover.

There were polkas included among the group’s musical offerings such as Dennis Murphy Polka, John Ryan Polka, Plaza Polka and more. There was even Morrison’s Jig included in the evening’s program. And one of the hits of the evening was the playing of the Ward Allen fiddle tune Maple Sugar. See EVENING, page 4

Evening of music hosted by Huntley Historical Society Continued from page 3

James Caldwell described this tune as probably the musical anthem of Ottawa Valley. Ward Allen was the fiddler with the Happy Wanderers of CFRA radio fame in the 1950s and 1960s. His Maple Sugar tune, which was a hit in both Canada and the United States in 1957, is now considered one of the classics of Canadian fiddle music. Most of the tunes played by the Barley Shakers were instrumentals, although a few featured vocals by Bruce Kingsley, David Whiteley and James Caldwell himself who also kept up a steady banter between tunes, sometimes talking about the history of Carp with its three ho-

tels, four gas stations and car dealerships and at other times inserting some St. Patrick’s Day lore into his song introductions such as explaining that leprechauns dressed in green because they thought that colour made them invisible. And, indeed, maybe they are, because who ever sees a leprechaun! The Barley Shakers have performed a number of times before at an event hosted by the Huntley Township Historical Society. The group had its beginnings about 15 years ago when anyone playing Celtic music was invited to participate in some sessions in the same Memorial Hall in Carp where this March 7th event was being held See BARLEY SHAKERS, page 5 .

This led to regular Monday evening jam sessions at the Masonic Lodge in Carp which still continue to this day, sometimes with up to 17 fiddlers showing up to jam. The Barley Shakers branched off from this main group when the group opted to make a

CD and the Barley Shakers have continued to this day. The group practices twice a month and performs at up to two gigs a month, often at retirement residences. Members of the Barley Shakers live in the area, in communities such as Kanata, Carleton Place, Almonte and Carp itself.

Artwork featuring animals of Kenya will be sold BY JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

Animals who normally live in Kenya have come alive in a Carp area basement. No, it wasn’t the living, breathing animals that would roam in Kenya but rather artistic depictions of them as created by a group of young-

sters aged 3 to 11. Each of these works of art created by the children are now going to be framed and will be sold at the Carp community garage sale or at a local church bazaar, all to raise funds for the new Carp Helps group that is supporting the Creation of Hope project in Kenya.

‘Carp Helps’ supporting Creation of Hope project Continued from page 6

This new Carp Helps group is the initiative of Kelly Betts of Carp who along with her family have been supporting the Creation of Hope project for the past eight years. Carp Helps will raise funds and increase community awareness about this Creation of Hope project. A group of youngsters gathered in the basement of the Betts’ Carp area home to create their art, each piece of which features an animal that lives in Kenya. The Creation of Hope project began in 2007 when Canadian children’s author Eric Walters and his son travelled to Kikima, a small village in the Mbooni district of rural Kenya. During the trip, they met Mutuku, a young orphan, discovering that he was just one of hundreds of orphans in the area, most of whom had lost their parents to HIV/ AIDS. Author Walters decided to do something about it and what began in 2007 as a project to help a few orphans has

Dates set for Constance Bay Market to 12 noon. The Constance Bay Community Market will once again this year operate on the grounds of St. Gabriel’s Church in Constance Bay. Cindy Pratt is continuing as the market manager this year. Heading the new Board of Directors elected at the Constance Bay Community Market’s recent annual general meeting is Melanie Paquette, who will be serving as chair for 2017. Others on the board include Janice Boeyen as secretarytreasurer, Sylvia Bell as a non-voting director, and Amanda Chapman, Angela Bernhardt, Kevin Pratt, Rosanne Coomber, Suzanne Lee, Jodi Wood and Julia Cheeseman as directors.


Dates have now been established for the Constance Bay Community Market this year. There will be 10 market days happening on a biweekly basis until September, when the market will be held on four consecutive Saturdays. The dates for the Constance Bay Community Market this year will be Saturdays June 17, July 1, July 15, July 29, Aug. 12, Aug. 28, and Sept. 9, 16, 23 and 30. And this year, there will be longer hours of operation for the Constance Bay Community Market, with the market to run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Last year, the market ran from 9 a.m.

now expanded into a project that provides help to 400 orphans there. The project is still a relatively small scale operation but this has its benefits in that each child in the program gets personal attention by those who run the program on the ground in Kenya. The Rolling Hills Residence, an orphanage home that has been built, can accommodate 50 children who have no family to support them. The orphanage was built by local Kenyan workers using local resources and materials. The project also involves a monthly food distribution program that is run by local Kenyans that ensures that the children supported by Creation of Hope consistently get nutritious meals. Creation of Hope has also supported various water projects that provide water for drinking and farming, trying to break the cycle of starvation which has existed in this area of Kenya. Creation of Hope also supports 40 high school students, providing them with tuition and the materials needed to attend high school. In addition, a library supported by Creation of Hope built by and employing local people and stocked mostly with local books is the only one in the region. It is open to everyone in the community, an oasis of literacy in the area. Those supporting Creation of Hope can sponsor a child by making a monthly donation. Letters and emails

with the orphan sponsored can be exchanged. In addition, donors receive pictures and regular updates about how the orphan is doing. Besides individuals, groups such as schools and church groups can also donate funds to support “Creation of Hope” work. These donations go to support initiatives such as the Rolling Hills Residence orphanage, food distribution, water projects, high school and post-secondary school placement and community outreach projects such as the community library that was built. Author Walters himself has written a number of books based on his real life experiences and the lives of children living in Kenya including Walking Home, My Name is Blessing, Today is the Day, Hope Spring and Alexandria of Africa. These books do provide an informative way for parents to introduce their children to the realities of life in developing countries and to help children develop a sense of empathy for the situation, inspiring a desire to help.

A change in the charge


ou can’t live without it in today’s society and in recent times, some haven’t been able to live with it due to the cost. We are talking about the electricity which powers virtually every aspect of our lives. So when Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announces a 17 per cent reduction in rates, you take notice. Some are citing this as a cynical political move. Well, surprise, surprise — hydro rates have been a political football in Ontario ever since electricity started flowing in the early 1900s. The electricity system has been reliable recently, not like the frequent, annoying outages that plagued the system in the notso-distant past. The principle that future generations — rather than present-day ratepayers — should pay a share of the infrastructure costs related to electricity, which is the justification for this rate reduction, is a good one. It works when buying a home, with the costs distributed over future years. It now will apply to the electricity system. But more could and should be done to reduce electricity rates.

Can you image today’s society with no electricity? Hardly, so why is the federal portion of the HST charged on electricity? Other essential items in society like food are exempt. That should be the case with electricity as well. It might be a better use of Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre’s time if he railed against this injustice rather than tilting at the windmill of the proposed carbon tax as he has been doing. Furthermore, if Wynne is so concerned about hydro consumers getting a break so they can afford to live in today’s society, why is she not coming to the aid of those City of Ottawa residents in Cumberland, Osgoode, Rideau and West Carleton who are now served by Hydro One, but should be served by local municipal utility Hydro Ottawa with its lower rates. This should be simple and easy to do, particularly by a premier who claims to want to lower electricity rates for customers. Yet many Ottawa residents remain shut out of being served by their more efficient local municipal utility. It’s time that the premier stepped up to the plate on this issue and forced change.

West Carleton Review - Thursday, March 16, 2017 9

Karen McCrimmon Serving Constituents of Kanata-Carleton

Member of Parliament Kanata-Carleton International Women’s Day

I had the great pleasure of attending a number of events celebrating International Women’s Day. First, I had the honour of greeting young women of the “Daughters of the Vote” delegation who arrived at Ottawa International Airport, on an aircraft operated by two female pilots. I had the opportunity to speak to these bright young women, part of a larger group of 338 Canadians, one representative from each of Canada’s Ridings. It was great to meet the “daughter” who was ‘paired’ to our Riding, Jasmine van Schouwen. Jasmine is a very bright and talented young woman, who did an amazing job during the opening ceremonies by performing a song that she had written. On the eve of International Women’s Day, I was delighted to join Councillor Allan Hubley at his event at Don Cherry’s in Kanata. I want to extend a huge thank you to Councillor Hubley for the opportunity to speak to all those who attended, and offer my congratulations to hosting a great event. On International Women’s Day, I watched as the 338 young women of the “Daughters of the Vote” delegation from across Canada sat in the House of Commons to discuss issues important to our youth. Sitting in the seats of their representative MP, the young women were present for speeches by former Prime Minister Kim Campbell and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. After the Daughters of the Vote event on Parliament Hill, I travelled to Algonquin College to speak to and answer questions from those on hand at the AC Entrepreneurship Club International Women’s Day event. I was very impressed with their level of engagement.

Letter: Distracted driving on rural roads Dear editor: Safe at my desk, but still shaking. Driving in to work on 6th line, Pete and I suddenly notice that the grey pickup truck in the oncoming lane is close to the line — over the line — halfway in our lane and speeding toward us. Pete hits the horn and the truck veers over, just in time. The whole thing, from the noticing to the near-miss, seemed to take no time at all. It'll last quite awhile in our heads though, I think. The rest of the ride is spent in waves of relief, residual fear, anger. Pete wondering what if he hadn't had the reaction to honk

(In fact, I have been known to tease that his horn-use errs on the side of politeness — which I vow to stop doing — because clearly, not when it matters!). What if the truck hadn't swerved, would Pete have been able to veer on to the gravel shoulder on time? Don't know — although he wasn't speeding, the closing time seemed really, really short. As we wait for the adrenalin to recede, we talk about distracted driving, which is what we assume was going on. How it's at least as bad as drunk driving, but much more common — people who wouldn't get behind the wheel

after two drinks will still have a peek at their phones, at which point they are much worse than a drunk! I wonder if it's worse on country roads with their combination of high speeds and high temptation (the road seems so empty — until it isn't). We also reflect soberly on our beloved summer bike-commute. Because it was immediately obvious that nothing would have saved a cyclist who happened to be sharing that driver's lane, if s/he happened to veer right while texting. Although this incident was my closest call yet, it seems pretty common to see a driver with sus-

Hear about ornamental grasses SPECIAL TO THE REVIEW

There’s grass that you cut in the lawn, but there’s also ornamental grasses which can be a feature in a garden. And it is these ornamental grasses that guest speaker Phil Reilly will talk about when he serves as the guest speaker at the March meeting of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society in Stittsville on Tuesday, March 21. Phil Reilly used to operate a com-

mercial nursery “Reilly’s Country Gardens” on Diamondview Road at Kinburn in West Carleton, but ceased operating it as of June 2009. He still presents talks on horticultural topics and writes on gardening. Grasses may be annuals, biennials or perennials, may grow short or tall, may flower in the spring or fall, may be prolific self-seeders or be sterile and may be invasive spreaders or wellbehaved clump formers. The visual impact of ornament

piciously downcast gaze. So, here's my plea to the police (and the governments who fund them) — it's time to invest more in enforcement of distracteddriving laws (and while we're at it, speed limits and bike-passing rules). And don't forget about the rural roads — where both speed and temptation to do the wrong thing are high. And to all drivers who may just want to read that map or text — maybe only when on an empty country road? I know it is super-tempting, but not worth it, ever. Kathryn Adeney Dunrobin

grasses is accentuated in gardens. Short clump-forming varieties can be used as edging plants while tall varieties can be effective as background plants or used alone in island beds in lawns. Fall flowering grasses can add colour and texture to gardens that are winding down for the season. Strong-stemmed grasses withstand normal winter snows and when left standing over the winter can provide not only a visual feature but can be a source of food for birds. Gardening with ornamental grasses can be compared to gardening with perennials. Ornamental grasses often take two to three years to fill out to provide the desired showiness. Ornamental grasses are rated for hardiness like perennials. Mid to late spring is the best time to plant perennial ornamental grasses to allow the root systems to become well established over the growing season. Most ornamental grasses prefer well-drained soils or growing in slightly raised beds if the predominant soil is heavy clay. You can learn all about ornamental grasses at Mr. Reilly’s presentation at the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society’s meeting on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Pretty Street Community Centre at the corner of Orville Street and Pretty Street (just east of Stittsville Main Street) in Stittsville. Everyone is welcome to attend although there is a $4 guest fee for nonmembers.

Dunrobin Fishing Derby

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Dunrobin Fishing Derby on Constance Bay. It was great to spend time outdoors in our riding, a community that offers so many recreational opportunities. Congratulations to the winners!

Spring fever strikes early on the farm this year


fter a week lying on a beach in Jamaica, the cows decided I needed some exercise. I was summoned from my office by the sound of cows bellowing in the barnyard. I looked out the window and saw the gate swinging open — never a good sign. I guess the Farmer didn’t make sure it was closed properly after he watered the new mamas and their calves this morning. So I got to play round up with the escapees. I grabbed some boots and a jacket and darted out the front door to head the beasts off before they could escape down the driveway. I was a bit late. The bull was leading the way, and as soon as he saw me he picked up speed. I had grabbed a couple of apples to lure him with, but he was too far away to see or smell them. Dono led his excited troupe of four cows and one lone calf around to the other barnyard gate to see if they could get back in that way. Nope. It was locked and chained, as it should be. The dogs next door spotted him, and started barking.

DIANA FISHER The Accidental Farmwife He decided to go check that out, tiptoeing through the bushes to their living room window. The neighbours were thrilled, I’m sure, to see part of our herd in their yard. I cut through the field and ran down the road, in an attempt to stop the cattle from continuing that way where they might cause a real problem with an oncoming vehicle. Luckily, I was able to steer them back up toward the barnyard where I had managed to pull the gate wide open. I flapped my arms and called at them, “Heh! Heh!” I told them they were bad, and to get home! Most of them went willingly but some kicked up their heels as they ran back through the gate into the barnyard. They mooed at me in protest. In the barn, two new mamas and their calves called out as if to say, “What’s going on out there?” I walked back to the house slowly, trying to catch my breath. Just as I reached the first barn gate and moved to close it, I realized I still had two runaways in the yard. One was standing in the flower bed and peeking into

the swimming pool. The other was sniffing remnants of veggies in the garden. It really is a two-person job, rounding up animals and herding them back through a narrow gate. I ran one way and then the other, after the two beasts. Every time I pushed them one way, I had to turn and run the other way around the house to stop them from escaping down the driveway again. Half an hour later, Betty showed up on the barnyard side of the fence and mooed, as if to ask the two remaining cows what they were still doing on the people side of the fence. Slowly, the two brats moved toward the gate. One paused for a moment to nibble on the cedar tree but I took a step toward her and flapped my arms with a “Ha!” and she turned, kicked up her heels and trotted through the gate. At least once a year this happens. It is typically in springtime, because the grass is truly greener on the other side of the fence and the animals want a taste. I’m just glad it didn’t happen when we were

away and our daughters were house-sitting. They had enough trouble trying to escort the newborn calves and their mamas over the frozen ruts of mud and manure into the barn. Only two new calves were born while we were away, and their birth experiences were relatively normal and trauma free. This is good, because we like taking a vacation once a year and we want to be able to ask our daughters to help out again! The house and barn cats are starting to venture out of doors now that the days are getting warmer. Sammy hasn’t been outside for more than a fleeting moment in the past four months but one sunny day last week he disappeared out the door for an adventure. He came back a few hours later with his first wounds of the season. I guess he bumped into the stray tomcat on his outing, and they got into a fight. Spring fever has arrived, just a few days early. www.theaccidentalfarmwife.blogspot.com email: dianafisher1@gmail.com

West Carleton Review - Thursday, March 16, 2017 11

MPP MacLaren suggests ministry of property rights BY NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

It’s a blue-ribbon panel facing a milliondollar question: how do you get city-dwellers to care about property rights? Progressive Conservative MPP Jack MacLaren has been tasked by his party’s leader with tapping Ontarians about ways to put more teeth in protections for property owners. One solution floated by MacLaren at a March 9 town hall meeting in Kanata is a new

provincial ministry of property rights. He foresees such a ministry reviewing future legislation “to ensure that it does not infringe on property rights,” while reviewing all existing laws to remove parts that infringe on those rights. Laws about wetland designations and endangered species may resonate with many rural residents in Ontario, but a mostly rural audience in Kanata understood it will be tough to get people in urban and suburban homes to pay much attention. “If we can change people’s thinking on prop-

Maki House Community Centre - 19 Leeming Drive To expand access to rapid transit service and extend light rail farther west, the City is reviewing plans to extend light rail beyond Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive as part of the Stage 2 Light Rail Transit (LRT) Project. Please join us for a public consultation to discuss this project. This consultation is an opportunity for the team working on the project to hear your thoughts and answer questions. This public consultation will: • Present recommendations to convert the West Transitway Extension from a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system to Light Rail Transit (LRT), review plans for grade separation at Holly Acres, enhance connectivity to light rail and explore the feasibility of having a Light Maintenance Storage Facility (LMSF) beyond Bayshore Station • Provide background information on the expanded bus facilities at Bayshore in the event that Bayshore is the terminus of the Confederation Line in the interim

erty rights, then they’ll start behaving a different way and we’ll get results,” said Mark Breckon, who is leading the Conservatives' nine-member panel on property rights. The first town hall meeting was held in MacLaren’s riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills, and stops are planned across the province. MacLaren is his party’s critic for natural resources and forestry. Landowners in the province’s countryside can often share anecdotes about government intervention affecting their property or that of a neighbour. The provincial departments mentioned at the town hall were the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, and the attorney general’s office. The government action that draws the greatest ire is the designation of private land as significant wetlands, which affects the owner’s ability to develop or in any way change the land. Endangered-species regulations have also seen development halted when a particular animal is found to be living there. “Legislation gets made, and a part of your property goes down to the wetlands,” said panel member Tom Black of Stittsville, who is president of the Ontario Landowners Association. Black said the province has stepped back a little when it comes to protecting rare animals. “It’s not as bad now as it was when they were trying to protect every bird in every hayfield,” Black said. Other laws that can affect property owners include municipal bylaws and official plans, heritage designations and floodplain designations.

MacLaren said urban and suburban Ontarians should pay attention. “Your life is your property,” he said. “You use your body for labour, and in return you are paid money, and that’s your property. And when government creates something like a carbon tax, that takes your property (your money), and you can't use it to buy other property.” MacLaren said property rights have been eroded bit by bit. “We have a pretty good system, but it’s being taken away from us. Government is doing it to us with legislation. We’re losing it inch by inch, and we don't want government down our throats. It’s time to push back.” He said courts have been faced with arguments about “degrees of property rights.” “That’s crap,” MacLaren said. “We need to change the tone and reinstate the attitude of the people who wrote the Magna Carta.” On the issue of endangered species, MacLaren said government has to seek a better balance. “We all want to protect endangered species, but not if it’s going to destroy your home or your property or your job,” he said. PC CAUCUS The property rights panel’s task is to encourage party members to support the issue at the PC party’s policy convention in November. To that end, people at the town hall meeting were encouraged to buy party memberships and become delegates at the convention. “We’re not out to burn the house down,” MacLaren said. “We want to come across as reasonable, sensible people.” See NO. 1 SUBJECT, page 13

‘No. 1 subject for me,’ MPP states Continued from page 12

MacLaren said it may be a challenge just to get his colleagues to push the issue. “Not all of our caucus members are as keen on property rights as the 40 people here tonight,” he said. Black added that the ideas taken forward to the policy convention have to be palatable in the mainstream if the party is to be successful in the provincial election scheduled for June 2018. “We don’t want to lose the election over this,” Black said. “We want a soft tone that’s

sellable to everyone.” The panel is made up of nine members, all but one of whom is a current or past leader in landowners’ associations in eastern Ontario. MacLaren said he’s had questions about the diversity of the panel he helped to select. “These are the people I know with strong opinions and support for property rights,” he said. The panel worked on a preliminary report for 16 months, and it was shared with Brown in January.

The panel’s tour of the province was then approved, with the goal of adding new ideas for future legislation. “This is the No. 1 subject for me,” MacLaren said as the town hall meeting opened. “I was given no rules or guidelines, which is the best way. “I think interest will grow. It’s a subject nobody ever talks about.” The preliminary report is available online at www.yourpropertyrights.ca. The website is expected to post a schedule of town halls in the near future.

Two health services info events SPECIAL TO THE REVIEW

Want to know about health services available for older adults in the community? Then mark down Thursday, March 23 on your calendar. That’s when the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association (CBBCA) is hosting two health services information events for older adults and for those who care about and/or for them. Both of these information sessions will be held at the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Centre at 262 Len Purcell Dr. on March 23, one in the afternoon starting at 2 p.m. and one in the evening starting at 7 p.m. The afternoon session will be about the “Seniors Centre without Walls” program, which is a free program that enables seniors to get together for workshops and just plain conversation by phone, using conference calling. People are able to socialize without having to leave their homes. At this information event, Rachel Sutcliffe, program creator and co-ordinator from the Good Companions

Seniors Centre in Ottawa, will explain how the program works. She will demonstrate by calling to the workshop that is being held that day dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. The evening session will feature presentations by two West Carleton health service providers: the Constance Bay Pharmacy and the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre (WOCRC). The Constance Bay Pharmacy, which is the only one between Carp and Arnprior, opened just before Christmas. Running a community and client-focused pharmacy has been a career-long dream for pharmacist Tamara Awada, who had spent 20 years working in large chain pharmacies. Tamara is running what she calls “back to the roots pharmacy services that provide a human touch with every single encounter.” The Constance Bay Pharmacy offers services such as free delivery and at home MedsCheks visits. The WOCRC launched two community service centres in mid-November, one in Constance Bay which is open on Mondays and Thursdays,

Mayor goes for three-peat BY JENNIFER MCINTOSH


Mayor Jim Watson has announced he is planning to seek reelection in 2018. Watson said he plans to run on his record. “I am very proud of my record and everything we built together,” Watson wrote in a statement posted to his Facebook page on March 9. Watson said he’s committed to keeping taxes at an affordable rate and said creative thinking and hard work has kept taxes at a predictable level

during his tenure as mayor. Not surprisingly, Watson counted light rail among his achievements. “…after years of false starts, lawsuits and cancellations, we are now on the verge of witnessing the opening of our new light rail transit system on time and on budget,” he said. Watson started out as a city councillor for Ottawa in 1991 and served as mayor from 1997 to 2000 before heading to Queen’s Park to represent the riding of Ottawa West-Nepean. He re-

signed from provincial cabinet in 2010 to seek the mayor’s job from rival Larry O’Brien. He has won two straight elections and will be seeking a third consecutive term in the 2018 election.

and one in Fitzroy Harbour which is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Hours for both when open are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both are now offering workshops and services. Megan Richards, who manages the two centres, will outline the services provided, which include low cost transportation (e.g. $10 for a grocery shopping trip), Meals on Wheels, home maintenance and referral to specialized services. But Megan’s main focus in her presentation will be a brand-new service that has started, namely the Community Helper Program. This is a 35-hour course developed by Algonquin College to train volunteers to work with seniors by developing a deeper understanding of the life challenges which seniors face every day. The first such course will be offered at the Constance Bay service centre from Monday, March 27 to Thursday, March 30 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information about this new Community Helper Program or any WOCRC services, please contact Megan Richards, community health program co-ordinator, at 613-591-3686, ext. 324 or by emailing Richards@ wocrc.ca. For more information about any of the programs and services for older adults offered by the CBBCA, please contact Andy Rapoch, the seniors director on the Board of the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association, at 613-290-8311 or by email at adults55plus@ cbbca.ca.

Jack MacLaren Member of Provincial Parliament Carleton-Mississippi Mills

The Latest Hydro Hoax Don’t like your hydro bill? Let your grandchildren pay it! That seems to be the government’s plan now… Only low polling numbers could have convinced the government to do something about the crippling price of hydro. Now that the government is less popular than ever before, and an election is a year away, we’re seeing more and more incompetent scrambling on the hydro file. The government has proposed a 17% reduction in hydro bills. This will result in some small savings in the short term. But the long-term cost will be an extra $14 billion – paid for by our taxes for decades to come. This is outrageous, and it won’t solve the problem. The Green Energy Act is the problem. We need to abolish the Green Energy Act. We need to use more of our cheap and clean hydro power. We need to stop signing more and more expensive contracts for wind and solar energy that we don’t need. The next election can’t come soon enough!

Organic carrots from Perth area farm Continued from page 16

This is FoodShare’s national local food awareness campaign that this year marked its 10th anniversary. Each student bit down on a fresh carrot at precisely 2:30 p.m., joining over 100,000 others across Canada in making noise for food awareness and literacy. The carrots themselves came from Waratah

Downs, a local organic farm near Perth. As Kate Garvie, co-ordinator for Sustain West Carleton explained to the assembled students, these carrots were transported only about 100 kilometres to arrive at Stonecrest Elementary School. This compares to about 3,000 kilometres which most carrots that are sold in grocery stores are transported when coming from the United States. See CELEBRATION, page 23

Summer camp can help develop valuable life-long skills MATT BARR

Owner/president of Camps Canada

There are hundreds of reasons for kids to go to camp. Here is a partial list of some of these reasons followed by expert advice about them. Every child should go to camp to: • make new friends (the number one outcome cited by children who attend camp) • learn new physical skills (arts and crafts, sports, swimming, waterskiing, archery) • learn new social skills (communication, leadership, teamwork) • gain an appreciation of people’s different abilities (we are all gifted in some way or another) • experience the feelings of love, safety, and security • enjoy being a kid and clowning around • experience the freedom to make choices, decisions, and mistakes • do chores without being paid (kids help to clean up after lunch and to keep the camp

• • • • • • • • • •

• •

area clean) have one outstanding teacher (we have lots of the non-academic kind here) see positive adult role models in a fun environment experience a community where everyone is welcome regardless of race, colour or religion learn how to swim (many camps provide daily swimming opportunities) receive praise for who she is and what she has accomplished (counselors do this all the time) turn off the television for a week (there are no TV’s at most camps) to gain leadership skills (within a group of their peers) experience many things for the first time build confidence in all the things they can do feel comfortable being themselves (all personalities are encouraged and celebrated at camp) learn to adjust to new environments, various social situations gain a greater sense of personal satisfaction, self-esteem, and

leadership develop personal habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle • discover and explore their interests, values and talents • participate on teams • take responsibility for others and help out • increase their problem-solving skills • meet a new circle of peers (outside of their school friends) • create life-long friendships • learn to adjust to new environments • gain a greater sense of personal satisfaction and personal habits that lead to a healthy lifestyle • trust their own instincts and gain a sense of independence Most importantly . . . to have fun A camp experience is without equal. Even those campers who during the school year have behavioural problems, difficulty concentrating or who cannot relate well to their peers are highly successful. How is all of this accomplished in a recreational/educational setting that is overseen by a few camping professionals, but is administered for the most •

part by high school and university students? The answer is complex; however, the key to the success of camp is that all its efforts are focused on the individual and not on the program. The program is the tool. The medium is the out of doors; the strategy is to earn the trust of the child in order to make the experience positive, non-threatening, creative and enjoyable. The camping community has long realized that when a child is placed in a trusting, nurturing environment devoid of the pressure to pass or fail and without competition, the motivation to learn is greatly increased. Each summer it is evident by the smiles on their faces, and the laughter we hear that campers are extremely happy in the camp environment. They learn to be self reliant, cooperative, understanding and sensitive. As part of a relatively small group they make friendships and establish bonds that will last a lifetime. The trust that is established allows them to take risks, experiment, challenge themselves and learn from these trials. Day to day they face a multitude of

real life situations for which they find their own solutions or work closely with others to resolve them. They develop logical thinking. They assume various roles within the group based upon their strengths. They are better able to make choices for themselves that meet their needs and the needs of others. They become part of a community as they get caught up in the enthusiastic displays of spirit and singing that make camp distinct. Moreover, without realizing it they develop skills that relate directly to academic subjects such as geography, mathematics, kinesiology, meteorology, biology, natural sciences and languages. Their ability to communicate with their peers and their leaders is enhanced. They learn to accept and appreciate individual differences and are willing to reach out to assist others or allow themselves to be helped. Through challenging and creative activities they develop skills that will be useful as they cope with everyday life. See CAMP IS, page 20

In this environment the “poor student” has an opportunity for recognition and leadership that may otherwise be denied. Camp is for every child regardless of talent and ability. In today’s pressure-oriented society, camp provides a non-threatening environment for Canada’s youth to be active, to develop competence in life skills, to learn about and enhance their own abilities and to benefit from meaningful participation in a community designed just for them.

Reasons to be thinking about summer now While it may seem like spring has just sprung, summer will be here before you know it. According to the education experts at Oxford Learning, that means that it’s time to start thinking about summer learning plans. “Summer learning is a critical – and often overlooked – part of students’ learning. By planning for summer learning now, parents will help their children avoid the summer learning brain drain,” says Nick Whitehead, founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. He offers these five reasons why planning for summer learning this spring is so important: 1. Summer is going to be here soon. Spring may have just begun, but before long, students will be studying for exams and handing in their

final term projects, which means that it’s not too early to think about what kids are going to be doing this summer. 2. Summer can undo what children are learning right now. Without maintaining learning momentum and study skills over the summer break, students easily forget everything they’re working hard to learn right now, which means that next year, students need to repeat the same workbooks and materials they are learning right now. 3. Summer can have an impact on how children learn next year. After a summer off, it can take kids up to three months to get back into the swing of learning. That represents a huge amount of wasted learning opportunities, and it

means that students are not up to their potential from as early as the first day back to class. 4. Kids want to learn in the summer. Research in summer learning studies shows that 56 per cent of students want to be involved in a summer program that helps them keep up with summer schoolwork or prepare for the next grade. 5. Summer programs fill up fast. Most programs are already accepting applications and taking reservations for summer enrolment. Schools, camps, and supplemental tutoring facilities such as Oxford Learning are no exception. – www.newscanada.com

Summer is just around the corner; be camp ready On a chilly day like today, it’s hard to believe that the warm weather will be back in a few short weeks. Summer is just around the corner, and it will soon be time for your children to go off to summer camp or to day camp. Have you started thinking about what you’d like them to do? You’d better get busy, because now is the time to register if you want early-bird prices.

are always available; they are ideal for children who love a bit of everything. Other camps are more specialized. Think about the following possibilities: sports, outdoor activities, dance, martial arts, sciences, languages, performing arts, visual arts, music, cooking, archeology, soccer, horse riding, deep-sea diving, circus, and the list goes on.


The next step is to find out if your children are ready to go to sleep-away camp, where they can stay for a week or more, or if they prefer day camp, so they can come home every night.

First of all, find out from your children exactly what they have in mind when they think about going to camp. Of course, traditional camps


Some camps welcome families or special-needs children who might have disabilities, be ill, or require specialized care.

• Talent Quest • Jammin’ Anyone? • Music Is Fun • Little Strings • Musical Adventure • Suzuki Violin • Music Theory • Head Start Program • and more....


When your children have made their choices and are registered, give yourself a pat on the back. Attending summer camp — with all its challenges, experiences, and learning opportunities — will have a positive effect on your children’s development. Children who attend camp develop their socializing skills, emotional intelligence, self-confidence, physical abilities, and environmental awareness.

Celebration of healthy eating, local food At Stonecrest Elementary School at Woodlawn Continued from page 17

Besides helping the environment by this smaller environmental footprint, these carrots from Waratah Downs are being provided by a local farmer rather than one from afar in the United States. Kate Garvie said that the “Great Big Crunch” is a celebration of

healthy eating and access to locallygrown food. She explained to the assembled students that the carrots which they were about to “crunch” had been grown at the Waratah Downs farm last year and then harvested last fall, being stored in a root cellar where they retained their crispness and freshness. It took two people







two hours each to peel the 800 carrots and get them ready for consumption by the students. Judi Varga-Toth, co-chair of the Deep Roots Food Hub of West Carleton, told the students that fresh, locally-grown, nutritious food helps make them stronger, faster and smarter while also being healthier.

That’s when the school celebrated La Semaine Internationale de la Francophonie with a day of special activities to increase awareness of French culture around the world. Students had the opportunity during the day to learn a dance, do art, learn about historic personalities like Samuel de Champlain and Jacques Cartier, enjoy games and more. A highlight of the day was a wrap-up concert in the gymnasium featuring Hey Wow, a Francophone band that has performed at different festivals around Eastern Canada. This year Hey Wow has been nominated for three awards at the Gala de la Trille Or 2017, an event organized by l’Association des professionaels de la chanson et de la musique. Hey Wow was formed in 2015 and since that time has

The band performed popular French folk and modern songs and students had a chance to perform with the band, performing the dance that they had learned that day. Students were encouraged to wear white and/or green clothing of some

Indeed, for the concert, a giant Ontario Francophone flag, which is green and white, hung on the rear wall of the stage area, virtually covering the whole wall due to its size. That day, many students made and wore to the concert green head bands. Among those helping out with events during the day were two Stonecrest Elementary School graduates, Myriam Burton and William Burton

1931 – 2017 Victoria, British Columbia On February 28th, Bill passed away peacefully in his home, at the age of 86. Sibling to Hazel and Dick, with Kathleen, proud parent of Kathryn, Karen & Will and grandparent to Chris, Megan, Ben, Samantha & Jack, Bill fought a courageous battle with prostate cancer for over 13 years, never letting it get in the way of travelling the world or pursuing his dreams and interests. Bill was a free spirit and loyal friend to a wonderfully diverse community of people. He cherished his time with every single one. Bill was passionate about sharing his wisdom and experience. His website was another pride & joy. You can visit it at www.thebillellisbible.ca for more. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Glorian Macdewellis Award intended to support International students studying theatre arts in Canada at Langara College where Bill volunteered: https://www.gofundme.com/the-glorianmacdewellis-scholarship. As Bill’s travels took him far and wide, no single service has been planned. Rather, we invite family & friends to find a special way to gather, pay their respects and celebrate his life. Gone but never forgotten, Bill’s spirit will live on in so many. He will be dearly missed. As “Bill the Sailor” would close every note, Love & Blessings to all.

Bartering was another tool for surviving lean Depression years


don’t know what I would do without Bertha Thom,” Mother said for the umpteenth time. We would hear her say that at least three times a day. Aunt Bertha, as we children called her, was no relation; but according to Mother, she had saved her life when she moved from the big city of New York to the backwoods of Renfrew County. It was Aunt Bertha who taught Mother to quilt, make pickles and a host of other trades to make life livable on a farm with no amenities. And it was Aunt Bertha who came to Mother’s rescue again, and it had to do with bartering, where we could trade things like butter, eggs or chickens for sugar or flour. But, Mother learned the hard way that bartering had its limitations. She tried to make a deal with Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store, and she found out he wasn’t inter-

cupboard. But Mother still felt she could barter if she put her mind to it, and soon she was trading butter and eggs for flour at the grist mill. She then figured if she could come up with something no one else had to offer, there would be no Memories end to what she could get in a trade. Something homemade. And she decided she would masested in eggs, butter or chickens. He ter the fine art of making buns. Not told her the people of Northcote just any buns. Special buns no one were his customers, and they had else would take the time to make. their own eggs, butter and chickens. She got out her Boston Cook And it was Aunt Bertha who Book (one of her precious possesthen told Mother the only place to sions brought from New York), and sell — not barter — her wares were night after night, she poured over to the people of Renfrew. Doorthe pages to see what she could to-door. And so, like just about make — and there she found the every other farm wife in Northcote, recipe for Chelsea buns. peddling became a Saturday ritual, She wisely thought that was too and the money raised was called fancy a name for buns off a farm in “egg money.” Although it wasn’t Northcote, so she called them sticky only egg money that went into the buns. little blue sugar bowl in the kitchen It took many batches before the


buns were to her liking … in fact, the first few times she made them, they were like bullets. But finally, the sticky buns were ready for Renfrew. Her first stop was at Ritza’s Rexall drugstore. Of course, fresh out of the oven, who could resist the smell of freshly baked buns? Mr. Ritza was delighted to take as a trade a batch of still-warm sticky buns for cough medicine, a bag of Epsom salts, and our very first can of tooth powder. It didn’t take long for Mother’s reputation to grow, and the demand for her sticky buns had her trading buns for a trip to the dentist, an eye test for my sister Audrey, and a hair cut for herself at Descharmes Beauty Parlour. Soon it was my sister Audrey and me who had to get the eggs washed, the chickens trussed up, and the butter wrapped in pounds on a

Friday night, while Mother made batch after batch of sticky buns to meet the demand in Renfrew the next day. The news spread fast, and it came as no surprise that Mr. Briscoe of Briscoe’s General Store told Mother on one of her trips to Northcote that he would be glad to try to sell some of her sticky buns for her. Bartering became a way of life. It was just another way to survive those lean Depression years when there was little or no money, and so, there had to be other ways of putting food on the table and clothes on our backs. Bartering was the answer. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

The Huntley Township Historical Society was founded in 1985. Their constitution defines the purposes and objectives of the Huntley Township Historical Society as follows: to collect historical and genealogical material, to establish a repository of information and artifacts for research purposes, and to publish and display related materials on the former Huntley Township. Huntley Township was surveyed in 1818, with the first settlers arriving shortly thereafter in 1819. The first Protestant Irish settlers arrived throughout the 1920s. Carp grew up at the junction of the roads from Ottawa, Arnprior and Stittsville. At one time, Carp had four hotels and four taverns. The first post office in Huntley dates to 1854, while Carp had its first newspaper, the Carp Star, in 1899. The Monk Rural Telephone Company began telephone service in the area in 1909. The former Huntley Township was amalgamated with the townships of Fitzroy and Torbolton in 1974 to form the township of

Wood Frogs and the three other species of frogs that spend winters frozen in the soil are a case in point. If frozen soil thaws prematurely then freezes again, the survival of these amphibians could be compromised as they might burn up essential glycogen reserves that are needed to revive them when spring mating time finally arrives. The abnormally high temperatures have a more measurable effect on Gray Jays. Their caches of food, stored last summer and autumn as thousands of individual items, spoil when repeatedly thawed and frozen. The decline of this species in Algonquin Park has been linked to this currently far-toofrequent cycle, one that is clearly tied to climate change. Despite the unpredictability of the weather, March appears to still have predictable phenomena. One is that the Red-winged Blackbirds, those vociferous harbingers of spring, will return from their southern hiatus. And right on schedule, these colourful songsters are now livening up local marshes and roadside wetlands. Although there are now many male Red-winged Blackbirds in our area, you will not see a female for some time. The males return almost two weeks before the females do. As soon the males return they begin staking out territories and singing to announce their ownership. While cattail marshes are their preferred habitat, male Redwinged Blackbirds will set up shop in almost any wetland habitat, including roadside ditches. But it pays for a male to choose and defend a good chunk of real estate for an owner of such will attract more than one mate. Red-winged Blackbirds are polygamous, with some males having half-

dozen females in their harem. Just as the blackbirds were making their first appearances, birds from the north were also being seen. A few weeks ago Great Gray Owls began to appear through the Ottawa Valley. These magnificent owls only come down to our region when food up north is hard to find. Currently another northerner is making an appearance. Bohemian Waxwings, however, eat fruit and not small mammals. Bohemian Waxwings, named in part for the red, waxlike projections adorning some of their wing feathers, are elegant birds that nest in the north. Most come from the northern parts of the Prairie Provinces, some from as far as northern Alberta. Waxwings are fruit eaters. Because they poop out seeds (in 20 minutes or less after swallowing a small fruit) they play important roles as seed dispersers. They seldom appear alone and travel in flocks that can contain a hundred or more individuals. Their lispy trills, which remind me of thin ice breaking up on lakeshores, will soon be a sound of winter past. March may or may not bring lambs and lions but it certainly is a month for welcoming back familiar friends and saying farewell to visitors from far afield. The Nature email is mruntz@start.ca

This male Red-winged Blackbird, which arrived at the end of February, will have had to wait a couple of weeks before a female responds to his courtship displays.

A weekly guide in legal matters

Each week, a lawyer from the Kanata based Allan Snelling law firm will answer a reader’s question. If you have a general legal question that you would like to have addressed send it via email to Legalmatters@compellingcounsel.com

My daughter slipped and fell and broke her arm badly on an icy sidewalk. I’m upset because it was unnecessary as there was no salt on that stretch of the sidewalk, even though everywhere else in my neighborhood was salted. Fortunately, my daughter can still come with the family on a trip for March Break. My neighbor says I should speak to a lawyer. I think she may be right but that can wait until we are back from vacation can’t it? NO IT CAN’T. In Ontario when people slip and fall on Municipally serviced roads and sidewalks they may have a cause of action against the Municipality. However, the Municipality, is entitled to notice within 10 days of an injury pursuant to the Municipal Act. If you fail to give notice within the stipulated period then you must provide an explanation for the delay, which a judge may accept failing which you may lose your right to recover damages. If you or someone you care for is injured in a fall, you should consider contacting a lawyer immediately to protect the right to recover compensation. About Allan Snelling Allan Snelling LLP is Kanata’s full-service law firm. Collaborative in approach and focused on solutions, our dedicated team of lawyers and support staff are committed to client satisfaction. We recognize that each client is unique and our firm has been structured to meet the diverse legal needs of every person and business in Kanata and the surrounding community.
