Sports - Orienteering Ottawa was readying the site of the North American championships with a competition last weekend in West Carleton. About 100 participants came out Sunday to the EcoWellness centre on the Carp Ridge for the sport that requires mapping and compass skills to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain, and normally moving speedily. Orienteering began in the 1960s as a training exercise in land navigation for soldiers, but didn’t catch on in Ottawa until the 1970s. Now the Carp Ridge and the Town of Arnprior are set to host the first official North American Orienteering Championships (NAOC).

McGrath helps trace biological family members through genealogy Continued from front

“Through finding my own birth mom in a matter of 10 minutes at a public library, I thought, well this is cool,� said McGrath. Now, 20 years later, she continues to help others find their biological parents and children through her business, Search Trace Locate. “I’ve been helping other adopted people find their birth parents through genealogy,� said McGrath, who lives and runs her business out of Arnprior. McGrath will be one of a number of “human books� available this weekend (May 3 and 4) at the Pakenham library. All five libraries in Larnark County – the Perth Union Library, Smiths Falls Library, Carleton Place Library, Mis-

sissippi Mills Library (both Almonte and Pakenham branches) and Lanark Highlands Library – will take part in the event. People will have the opportunity to check out a human book and learn about that person’s life. McGrath will be at the Pakenham library on Saturday, May 3. McGrath estimates she’s helped more than 3,000 people reunite with biological relatives, including her husband Sean. Finding Sean’s family took much longer than Lori’s – 10 years before they were able to track down his birth mother through the Children’s Aid Society in Newfoundland. “We had to find out if we were related at all. That’s a scary thought,� said Lori. “It’s a scary thought going out into the world and all these secrets were kept. You

Mother and son sent letters back and forth, spoke on the phone, and then set up an in person meet. “We finally got together,� said Francis. “For me, (it was) kind of unreal and wonderful. I’ve always been told that finding your son, adopted boys don’t often look for their mother. I didn’t think I would ever meet him.� Now it’s been almost a year and the two are still in contact with each other. “I think what Lori’s doing is very effective,� said Francis. “I found him.� ANSWERS FOUND

Jennifer Renauld grew up in a single parent household. She had never met her father and her mother didn’t talk about him. After her mother passed away, she decided to begin looking for her father. “I have always been wondering forever,� said Renauld, who lives in Pembroke. “Whatever happened to my father?� She ran across Lori at a craft show in Arnprior. They began talking about their experiences. “I gave her all the information I knew, which wasn’t a lot,� said Renauld. “Within

three days she had my answers for me.� Lori found Renauld’s father, who had passed away and was buried in the United States. He had remarried and had other children. Through the connection, Renauld found four half brothers and a half sister. “We don’t see each other but I chat with one of them on Facebook. It was odd his reaction at first when I told him I was looking for our dad. His reaction at first was, ‘Why would you bother? He never did anything for us,’� said Renauld. “For me it was a closure thing. If he was living I probably wouldn’t have gone to meet him. It was more about learning his lifestyle. Lori was able to provide that closure for me.� DRIVEN TO SUCCEED

Although Lori has helped numerous people find relatives, not every case has a happy ending. “I’ve had cases where the birth mothers turned me down flat,� she said. “I’ve also had it where adoptees who said ‘I like my life the way it is now, I don’t want to know this woman.’� Only four provinces in Canada – Ontario, Newfoundland, Alberta and British Columbia – have open legislation when it

comes to looking for biological children or mothers. Birth fathers, because they are often left off the birth certificate, have a harder time, said Lori. “Birth fathers got the biggest shaft of all as far as I’m concerned,� she said. “It’s much harder for the birth father to prove he’s the actual father, unless the child is found.� Siblings of adopted children also have no recourse if the birth mother is dead, she said. Lori uses a mix of systems to help locate the people she’s asked to find, such as online genealogy tools and social media sites, libraries, funeral homes, cemeteries, phone directories and national archives. “Anything I can get my hands on that has genealogy attached to it, I try to read it,� she said. And though it can be difficult, the successful cases far outweigh the negative ones. “For me, it’s the drive of wanting every person who wants that answer, where do I come from?� said Lori. “The feeling when somebody comes back and says, ‘I just spoke to so and so for the first time, how can I think you?’ I go, you just did.� For more information, visit searchtracelocate.com, email searchtracelocate@gmail.com or call 613-778-8225.

Carp Ridge to be site of two international orienteering events Continued from front

David Rosen from the International Orienteering Federation was brought over from the U.K. as an advisor to the championships. Speaking in the Carp area Sunday, he said he is impressed with the organizers

and the terrain. “It’s beautiful terrain, especially the open rock barrens,” Rosen said. “The maps are very detailed with boulders and ripples and thick vegetation. They’ve done a good job organizing it.” The North American Orienteering Championships

take place over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 10-13. The sprint and the relay will take place in Arnprior, and Arnprior will be headquarters for the weekend. The event centre, meals, accommodation and entertainment will all be in Arnprior at Robert Simpson Park.

“Arnprior is doing everything in their power to make it a great event,” said NAOC organizer Gloria Rankin. The middle and long events will be held on new maps of

the Carp Ridge - site of the 2010 Canadian Championships Middle and Long events. The relevant areas have now been embargoed. Lots

of non-competitive activities are also planned: recreational events, clinics, training opportunities, children’s activities. See ottawaoc.ca for more.

Counting for the birds Local event helps monitor city’s feathered population Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

The Ottawa Bird Count, along with the South March Highlands – Carp River Conservation. and Vitesse Reskilling, are hosting Counting Birds for Science, a local scientific research project that

helps track and estimate the bird populations within the city. Currently, more than 100,000 chickadees, 50,000 Blue Jays, and 10,000 Warbling Vireos live in Ottawa, along with many other species. And many can be found in the South March Highlands, where the event will take place. “In terms of number of birds, Ottawa in relation to many cities in the world has a

We’re working towards helping people understand or learn how to build cities that are habitats or homes for people and birds.” Smith said the group studies the relationship between urban development and land use, and the bird biodiversity in the area. “By studying it we hope to learn how to balance the needs of people with the needs of the birds,” said Smith. “People have to live somewhere, but people benefit by being surrounded by healthy diverse bird communities.” Smith, who has a background in landscape ecology, has been involved with the project since it began in 2007. The Ottawa Bird Count happens every year and the organization relies on “citizen scientists” to help provide accurate information during the local breeding season, which takes place from May to July.

Volunteer scientists working with the data have mapped the density of many species in the city and estimated the population sizes of many of Ottawa’s familiar backyard birds. “Our database and the analyses we’ve done to date can be used to predict the number that might be here in the fu-

The database is unique in Canada. There are only one or two other similar projects in North America. “At an ecology level, birds are great as indicators; they can tell us how the system is doing. They can indicate the health of the ecosystem more broadly,” said Smith. “They fly, which fascinates people. They sing. They’re beautiful and colourful. And they tolerate us to a really high degree; much more so than other families of animals do. “They go about their daily business for the most part embedded within our city.” The Counting Birds for

City-wide burn ban puts stop to open fires

By attending this session, you’ll ďŹ nd out more about the proposed multiple amendments in the upcoming Omnibus Zoning amendment report and have an opportunity to discuss them with City Staff. The proposed amendments include:

News - The City of Ottawa’s fire services put a spring burn ban into effect on April 23 to help prevent grass and brush fires. The ban is in place until conditions improve and green grass begins to sprout through the dead brush, said firefighter spokesman Marc Messier. “All open air fires are prohibited during a fire ban even for those properties that have a burn permit,â€? he said in a press release. “There will be zero tolerance enforcement during the open air burning ban.â€? The past winter left more debris, such as fallen tree branches and leaves, than usual, he said. This increases the risk of fire spreading rapidly. Messier offered the following tips to reduce the risk of fire: • Take advantage of weekly yard waste collection. • Clear all combustible materials such as tree limbs, leaves and other dry materials away from buildings and propane tanks. • Keep barbecue propane tanks at least three metres from buildings. • Wood piles should stored a safe distance

Discarded cigarettes are a major cause of grass fires during dry periods. SMOKERS WARNED

Smokers are reminded to use care when butting out and not to throw lit cigarettes out of vehicle windows. When the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burn ban is lifted, residents must first obtain a fire permit before having a fire in the open air and permit holders are required to call 613-580-2880 before burning anything. Fines may be issued to residents who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a valid fire permit or who are not compliant to the conditions and regulations of their permit. Fire permits are available at all city client service centres and Ottawa fire rural administration offices.

This beautiful girl is Arielle! After living for many years at the shelter, Arielle is desperately seeking a forever home. Arielle is a quiet, undemanding cat, she keeps to herself but enjoys attention. As an indoor cat, she would love nothing more than a sunny window to sit and watch the birds & squirrels.

The adoption fee has been waived in order to ďŹ nd her a loving home. Do you think Arielle could be a match for your home??

Internet now a necessity

M

any of us have the Internet in our pocket; an instant connection to news, email and, during an emergency, information that can even save lives. For others, the Internet is a distant concept. And not just in Third World countries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; here in Ottawa too. The cost of an Internet connection is more than some people can afford, despite the fact that highspeed connections are literally at their front door. Information is power, as well as a key element of a modern education. Without a decent connection to the worldwide web, people who are already behind the rest of Canadian society are destined to fall further behind. The children in homes without a fast connection are destined to fall behind their peers. It seems less likely they will get a chance to excel at school and beyond, which equals a massive waste of potential. A low-income advocacy group organized a march on April 17 to draw attention to the high cost of highspeed, a price tag that puts the Information Highway out of reach for many Canadians. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now is calling for high-speed Internet to be made available to Canadians for $10 a month. Given that the federal government regulates our telephone service, a more

affordable Internet is within reach if Parliament feels it is important. We pay taxes so that our libraries can share information with all residents. Why not a Canadian system to share the Internet with all Canadians? For this tech-savvy nation, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within our control to make it happen. The federal government has made rural high-speed Internet a priority, which is commendable. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean urban users â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with high-speed connections available â&#x20AC;&#x201C; should be forgotten. Internet access should be treated the same as basic phone service, with controlled rates so low-income families can get connected. Ottawa libraries provide Internet access â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when they are open and if there is no lineup of other customers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same as having information on your kitchen table. Low-speed, dial-up connections are still available â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with a phone line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good way to research material on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image-heavy websites. ACORN has the right idea. Every Canadian should have high-speed access. And if their current finances mean they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it, rates should be controlled. If Internet service providers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the cost affordable, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to all of us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; through our federal government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help offset costs so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all on an equal footing.

Free to vote; free to not vote U

sually the subject of voter turnout emerges briefly after elections, when it is discovered that two out of five of us didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother to go to the polls. There is a brief period of handwringing and then the political world reverts to its normal pattern of evasion, distortion and character assassination. Now thanks, if that is the word, to the Fair Elections Act, we are having the discussion at a time when it can do some good. It is a serious problem: according to the Canadian Press, just over 60 per cent of eligible voters turned out in 2011, and among voters under the age of 30 the turnout was less than 40 per cent. Provincial and municipal turnout figures are usually worse. There is no shortage of explanations. Some blame the nasty tone of our federal and provincial politics. Some blame the lack of issues of relevance to younger voters. And some blame the voting system itself. The argument goes that either it is too difficult to vote, or young voters just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care, or a combination of the two. The proposed solutions include asking the political parties to become more relevant. Godspeed on that one. On changes to the voting system, the one

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing for years is that Canada should adopt the compulsory vote, a system used with apparent success in other countries, such as Australia. The likelihood of being fined would bring young people out to the polls and, the argument goes, the likelihood of going to the polls would cause them to pay more attention to the issues. The counter-arguments are familiar. First, non-voters are usually non-interested and non-informed. Do we really want more people like that voting? Second, we live in a free society. For better or worse, one of our freedoms is the freedom not to vote. If we discard the compulsory option, the alternative most commonly proposed is online voting. We do everything online now, the argument goes, so why not voting? Young

people are more likely to vote if they can do so online. The argument is made forcefully by comedian Rick Mercer in one of his CBC rants, quoted in the Huffington Post: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government has a responsibility to make voting available wherever Canadians live. And yes, all Canadians reside in a riding but young Canadians, they live online. If we let them pay taxes there, let them vote there.â&#x20AC;? A couple of counter-arguments can be made. One comes from Ottawa Coun. Rick Chiarelli, quoted by CFRA, who used the example of the Heartbleed bug to point up the possible lack of security of online voting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always open to failure because the battle between security and hacking is a seesaw battle and it goes on like that,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said, and it is hard not to agree. The amount of attempted tampering in the last election indicates that any online voting system adopted will become a target, by those attempting to bias the result or perhaps just mess things up for fun. Even if online voting could be guaranteed to be secure, there would be still be reservations. It could be argued that putting voting online trivializes it, by putting it in the same

category as downloading a song. It should be thought of as a more serious matter than that. One way of observing that seriousness is to rise from your chair, put your shoes on and go out the door. Voting may or may not be a duty, but it is certainly a privilege. Polling places are almost always within walking distance. Many people are allowed time off from work to vote. Rides to and from are available. To treat the act of voting as some kind of hardship is a distortion of reality. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hardship to vote, millions of people around the world would like some.

Vaccination: Your best shot, an Immunization Awareness Week message To the Editor: The recent measles outbreaks in Canada remind us that infectious diseases still pose a serious threat to our health. Both infants and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to many vaccine-preventable diseases and their complications. For example, infants who are too young to be fully immunized can become seriously ill if they come in contact with an under-immunized adult who is sick with even a mild case of an illness like pertussis. During National Immunization Awareness

Week (April 26 to May 3), Immunize Canada calls upon all Canadians to protect themselves and others by staying up to date with their immunizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Immunizations are safe, effective, and benefit people of all ages,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Susan Bowles, Chair of Immunize Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They protect individuals and communities by preventing the spread of disease. As more people are immunized, the disease risk for everyone is reduced.â&#x20AC;? It is now easier than ever for Canadians to keep track of their immunizations thanks to a new app, ImmunizeCA, developed by Immu-

nize Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Public Health Association and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, and funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new ImmunizeCA app provides access to recommended immunization schedules, reliable, expert-approved, bilingual information about immunizations, as well as useful tools such as appointment reminders, and local outbreak alert notifications,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Shelly McNeil, vice-chair of Immunize Canada. The app is easy to use and ideal for Canadians constantly on the go. It is available for secure, free download at

the App Store, Google Play and Blackberry World. All can be accessed online at immunize. ca/app. In our busy connected world none of us is isolated, and the best way to protect yourself and the people around you is to get immunized. Talk to your doctor, nurse, pharmacist or local public health office about staying up-todate with your immunizations. Elizabeth Smith, communications manager Immunize Canada/CPHA

How to find your way through the spin without getting dizzy DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife

learned the basics of farming here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family tradition that they wanted to carry through the generations. The closure of Kemptville Campus is a business decision. However, the entity that is the University of Guelph receives funding from the ministries that are part of our government. So in that sense, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a corporate decision. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still under governmental jurisdiction. The Ministry of Ag and Food gives a lump sum to Guelph to operate every year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same amount theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been getting for years and that is not sustainable. Sources say the Ridgetown Campus of U of G was just days away from a similar announcement to the one made in Kemptville. They too put off sending out acceptance letters for new students, by a couple

weeks. Where will Ridgetown be in a few years if this funding model is not improved? A rally was held on Sunday, April 27 by a group of interested stakeholders: alumni, heads of ag industry organizations, representatives from the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and the Dairy Farmers of Ontario. They were frustrated that the ad-hoc Kemptville College Renewal Task Force had not been able to achieve better results in its first month of efforts. As many have agreed, the first step in the right direction is ensuring that we have a full, busy campus come fall so that prospective partners will see a vibrant atmosphere when considering investment opportunities. Do not be fooled. Premier Kathleen Wynne did not â&#x20AC;&#x153;saveâ&#x20AC;? Kemp-

tville College with her recent announcement. Her team convinced Guelph to allow new students in 10 skilled trades programs to start this fall. No agriculture programs are involved and they still finish up in the spring of 2015. Nothing has changed there. Basically she put a $2-million foot in the door so that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close too tightly. She says she is supportive of our Task Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to find a sustainable, local solution to the closure and this does buy us time. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe everything you read or see in Ottawa media or in the line-up at Tim Hortons. There is still much work to be done. The general consensus is that Kemptville College must either be reinstated by Guelph (although that seems highly unlikely at this point) or re-opened under another umbrella as an agricultural college that features skilled trades, food sciences, arboriculture, horticulture and equine programs. The motion put forward by Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rally outlines these points. A second motion committed support for the Kemptville College Renewal Task Force in their tireless efforts to

open doors and change opinion. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a point that was bravely offered up at the rally on Sunday, by Kemptville Campus professor and former associate director, Paul Sharpe. In order to change the minds of decision-makers, we must convince them that students still want to come to Kemptville. There really is a new generation of farmers out there ready to learn and they deserve to study close to home, so they can get up early every morning and help to run the family business. But we must also effectively attract students to our skilled trades programs, our food sciences, horticulture and equine programs. Farming is sexy. Ask anyone, around the world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the stuff of life. And how more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;down to earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; can you get? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keep working toward a new plan for the future of Kemptville College, so that she can reach her 100th birthday in 2017. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our goal. Call Premier Wynne at 1-416325-1941 or email premier@ontario.ca so she knows how you feel. Email: dianafisher1@gmail.com www.theaccidentalfarmwife. blogspot.com

Lifestyle - The March 12 announcement that Guelph University would be closing its Kemptville Campus in May 2015 was upsetting for many North Grenville residents. To the community, it is the loss of a landmark institution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that noble university at the south end of town. To business owners, it not only signifies loss of potential revenue from university staff and students, but the closure is a bad omen for economic development in the area. To potential students, the closure of Kemptville Campus means they have to travel 700 kilometres down the road to continue their studies at Guelph University. If they are from farming families, they will not be able to live at home and help out on the farm while they study. Then there is the sentiment being voiced by Kemptville College alumni around the world. Before University of Guelph, there was Kemptville College. Many students choose Kemptville not for its Guelph Uni umbrella but for its Kemptville College of Agricultural Technology (KCAT) or even Kemptville Agricultural School (KAS) heritage.

There is more than one way to catch a worm Lifestyle - When it comes to acquiring nutrition, animals show great resourcefulness. Anything organic-based is eaten. Leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, nectar, sap, wood, bark, insects, mammals, birds, fish, and carrion – the list is long and exhaustive. And great creativity is exhibited for each individual item. For example, some animals are specialized for eating earthworms. American Woodcocks, which now can be heard ‘beeping’ at dusk, have long bills for probing deep into soft earth. The bill’s tip has special sensory cells for locating worms, and can be opened near its end to grab a meal

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way deep underground. Star-nosed Moles have huge front feet for digging tunnels through muck and their nose is equipped with odd, finger-like protuberances for detecting worms by touch. American Robins run across lawns, stopping to cock their head to look first with one eye, then the other when they see the slightest movement in a worm’s tunnel. Then with lightening speed the bill strikes down and the worm becomes history. Recently I observed birds catching worms in a very different way. I was driving past a flooded soccer field at Carleton University when I noticed hordes of Ring-billed Gulls swimming on the water. I stopped to watch for a few min-

utes and noticed most were staring down into the water as they slowly swam around. Every now and again one would suddenly fly up into the air, hover briefly, and then dive headfirst into the water. When the gull surfaced a large earthworm would be dangling out its beak. After gobbling down its prize, the gull would commence slowly swimming around, repeating the entire process once again. I spent more than an hour watching the gulls and taking their photographs from the car. As there were about 150 gulls on the flooded field and each caught a worm every few minutes, I estimated that several thousand earthworms were being consumed every hour! Every now and again two birds would converge on the same spot and a brief battle would break out. When I drove by the field the next evening, much of the water was gone and the pond was only half its former size and depth. However, gulls were still present and were still catching worms. But instead of diving they were now just dipping their heads underwater to pluck the worms from the flooded lawn. Ring-billed Gulls are not worm specialists, but they are quick to exploit any feeding opportunity, which is why

PHOTOS BY MICHAEL RUNTZ

A Ring-billed Gull dives headfirst to catch a worm in a flooded soccer field. Far left, a Ring-billed Gull takes a bite out of an earthworm. they are so successful as a species. They eat live fish, which they catch by diving into the water. They scavenge dead fish on shores. They eat worms and beetle grubs exposed by farmers tilling their fields, which is why they swarm behind tractors. And they readily eat human food, which is why Wes’ Chips has signs

warning clients not to feed the birds. And, as I witnessed, they certainly eat earthworms driven from the ground when low-lying fields flood in spring. Obviously not only early birds get the worms; the clever ones do too! The Nature Number is 613-3872503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

Walking the Talk According to the 2011 National Household Survey, 68% of Ottawa residents drive a vehicle to work. Every day, people use vehicles to get to work, school, run errands, visit friends, and to take children to recreational activities. Although vehicles can be a quick form of transportation, did you know that in urban areas, walking for a distance of 500 meters or less is usually faster than using the car – and it is free and good for you. Car-centered living robs us of the chance to include physical activity into our daily lives. Every year, each Canadian makes an average of 2,000 car trips of less than three kilometers. Imagine how much healthier we would be if these short trips were replaced with an active mode of transportation, such as walking or cycling! May is Physical Activity Month and throughout the month, Ottawa Public Health is challenging residents to get active every day. A simple way is to walk if you are headed somewhere

that is 2 km or less. A 2 km walk is equal to thirty minutes of physical activity. If you do this 5 times per week, you will meet the 150 minutes of activity recommended for adults Using active forms of transportation not only improves our health, it can also help reduce vehicle emissions which have negative environmental and health effects.

Please join us for the Ottawa Walking Day Celebration on Tuesday May 13, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. at Ottawa City Hall located at 110 Laurier Avenue West. Bicycle parking is always free! There will be opportunities for networking, to listen to motivational speakers and to participate in guided walks along the canal. Register today! OttawaWalkingDay.Eventbrite.ca or for more information call: 613-580-6744 ext. 23514.

Turkey hunting seasons expanded this year News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nothing says springtime like the sound of a distant gobble in the turkey woods. The spring turkey hunting season started last Friday and runs to Saturday, May 31. This season offers more opportunities for Ontario hunters than ever before.

Sustainable wild turkey populations in Ontario have allowed for additional spring and fall hunting opportunities this year. For the first time, the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) has introduced new spring turkey hunting seasons in Wildlife Management Units in the Sudbury, North Bay and

Parry Sound districts. As well, a new fall hunting season will take place in WMU 59 (Pembroke district). The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), along with other advocates, began working with the MNR more than 25 years ago to restore wild

turkeys in the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reintroduction of the eastern wild turkey to Ontario is one of the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful wildlife recovery stories,â&#x20AC;? said OFAH biologist Dawn Sucee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With more than 70,000 birds estimated in Ontario,

populations seem to have stabilized in many areas. In other areas of the province, the range continues to expand naturally.â&#x20AC;? The additional turkey hunting opportunities were established in part using information submitted by Ontario hunters.

Mandatory turkey harvest reporting enables MNR biologists to analyze populations and make recommendations on management. Successful turkey hunters must report their harvested bird by no later than noon the day after it was harvested.

Spring bear hunt pilot project welcomed by agriculture group

       

having the most public safety incidents involving the animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;According to the government, this project is aimed at cutting the number of emergency calls and instances when police are forced to shoot nuisance bears after failed trap-and-relocation efforts.â&#x20AC;? Wales maintains the 1999 cancellation of the annual spring bear hunt by Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s then Conservative government was never clearly explained by the Ministry of Natural Resources. The hunt generated millions of dollars in economic activity annually across Northern Ontario, he pointed out. The OFA is launching an online campaign at actnow.ofa.on.ca to show its support of this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bear hunt pilot. OFA members are being urged to send an electronic letter of support to their MPP other key policy makers.

GREENING SCHOOL GROUNDS WITH EVERGREEN

News - Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) president Mark Wales has expressed farmers support for the return of the spring bear hunt in some areas of the province. In a news release last week circulated by the Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture, he calls Ontario Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti recent announcement of a pilot spring bear hunt â&#x20AC;&#x153;a well-considered move.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The OFA commends and supports the ministryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to launch the hunt across eight northern Ontario wildlife management areas this spring,â&#x20AC;? Wales says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since the annual spring hunt was cancelled in 1999, the rising bear population has put human safety at risk and caused increasing damage to agricultural crops and rural properties.

Dunrobin designer offers eco-friendly fashions Duffield Design puts emphasis on local, green products Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Community - Megan Duffield spent two years researching sustainable materials, sourcing ethical fabrics, and finding Canadian manufacturers before creating her own clothing store in a studio located on her Dunrobin property. It was important for Duffield to create eco-friendly, classic and easy-to-wear fashions that resonate with all women. Three years ago she did just that, launching Duffield Design. “I try to find a more sustainable way of living,” she said. “I want to use quality materials that are going to last for a long time.” And although the pieces last, they can also be thrown into the compost bin instead of the garbage when the time comes to get rid of

Versatile dresses are a staple for Megan Duffield. it, she said, something that can’t be said for polyester. “It doesn’t leave as big an impact on the environment as synthetic textiles,” Duffield said. Her clothing is often made from bamboo, cotton, beech wood fibre and a hemp-cotton blend, which are breathable, easy to wear, easy to care for, offer sun protection and are anti-bacterial.

“Those are some of the benefits to using real materials,” she said. “And it’s beautiful to wear too. I think that’s a draw for women.” Duffield herself does all the designing, patterns, cutting and sewing. When she has large orders, she will have the material cut through a manufacturer in Ottawa.

Duffield makes use of three specialized machines when putting her pieces together: a Juki serger for stretch material stitching, a Juki coverstitch machine for finishing edges and hems, as well as a fully automatic straight stitch machine for tags. “It really is, in the true sense of the word, slow fashion; taking care and time,” she said. “I really take time to focus on the cutting of the clothing.” Duffield creates about 10 new designs every season, which can be custom coloured, sized, fitted and altered. “There’s nothing better than looking great and feeling great,” she said. “They feel comfortable and confident.” And when women are part of the designing process they often feel more of a connection with their clothes, something that’s important for Duffield. “You’re able to become part of the design process,” she said. “There’s a story behind your clothing. I think that part’s very cool; to become part of the process, it’s very personal.” Her clothing is stocked in a range from extra-small to

GET ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY INVOLVED IN YOUR CHARITABLE GIVING the perfect amount to leave children is enough “money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing. ” One of the most challenging estate planning questions that parents have to wrestle with is how much of their estate should they leave to their children. As Warren Buffet once famously remarked,

Once parents have provided an appropriate amount of financial support to their children, they are often motivated to give back to the community. An increasing number of Canadian families are establishing family foundations in order to encourage all family members to get involved in the family’s charitable giving.

A private foundation is particularly well-suited to a family situation. Family members can be directors or trustees of the foundation and play an active role in deciding how funds will be managed and what charities will be supported by the foundation. Families find that the foundation keeps the family connected and parents can pass along their beliefs and values to children and grandchildren.

Apart from bringing the family together t Significant tax planning opportunities in order to promote charitable giving, a for the family. private family foundation has numerous Although there are costs associated with other benefits including: the establishment of a family foundation, t The ability of the family to decide on a number of financial institutions can an ongoing basis which charitable assist families with the establishment of organizations it will support; a foundation and many of the ongoing t The opportunity to create a legacy which administrative services. will continue once the parents have passed away;

Diefenbunker scares up win for Haunted Walk Ottawa Tourism Awards recognizes Cold War museum’s partnerships

From left, Diane Wing, publisher of Where Magazine, Glen Shackleton, director of Haunted Walks Inc., and Henriette Riegel, executive director of the Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum are on hand for the museum’s win at the Ottawa Tourism Awards gala on April 24. The Diefenbunker won first place for Partnership of the Year, and was also a finalist in the same category.

Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - The Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum scared up top honours at this year’s Ottawa Tourism Awards gala for its partnership with Haunted Walk Ottawa, the Bytown Museum and Ottawa Jail Hostel. Over the 2013 Halloween season, the Haunted Walk offered a unique tour option at the Diefenbunker, Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure. “It was really exciting for us,” said Heather Montgomery, education and volunteer manager at the Diefenbunker. “It was a great way to acknowledge the hard work everyone did for us.” More than 1,180 people stepped through the doors for the bunker’s Haunted Walk last October, while more than 60 people volunteered to play the living dead. The tour helped attract a new audience to the Diefenbunker, said Montgomery. “We set up a tour around the building with zombies,” she said, adding the Haunted Walk guides led the tours. “All the history that they learn is true, other than the zombie part. It’s a really interesting way for the audience to learn about our history. It’s a really great way for us to engage in a new way. “For us, it’s a really great partnership.” The Diefenbunker plans to host a number of Haunted Walks this October. The Cold War museum was nominated a second time in the Partnership of the Year category for its work with One World Dialogue and the Building Peace exhibition. “To be acknowledged twice … is really fantastic for us,” said Montgomery. “It’s really nice to be recognized for our partnerships.” Sixty artists submitted work focusing on building and creating peace. “The real power of this building is that it was never used,” said Montgomery. Another exhibit with One World Dialogue is planned for this coming September. The Downtown Rideau BIA was also a finalist for Partnership of the Year. Winners were announced on April 24 at a gala event at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre. They included: • New Company of the Year: Pumpkinferno. • Innovation of the Year: Calypso Theme Waterpark. • Community Spirit: Ottawa International Airport Authority. • Event of the Year: Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition. • Tourism Volunteer of the Year: Daniel Laliberté, general manager of Ottawa Marriott Hotel. • Tourism Leader of the Year: Mark Monahan, founder and executive director of the RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest. • Ottawa Tourism Travel Writing Award: Karan Smith for ‘Canadian War Museum a moving reminder.’ • 2013 Start of the City: Amanda Thomas and Paul Reid of the Holiday Inn and Suites Ottawa – Kanata. • Tourism Scholarship: Mandy De Geit, student in Algonquin College’s School of Hospitality and Tourism.

Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report GOOD NEWS FOR OTTAWA By Jim Watson

Years ago, when I was the head of the Canadian Tourism Commission, I often ran into former Ottawa residents who were living abroad. Without fail, one of the things that always came up when talking about the things they missed about our city was our tap water. It sounds like a strange thing to miss about a city but it really ISTRUETHAT/TTAWAHASEXCEPTIONALLYGOODTAPWATER In fact, in 2013, the City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drinking water system received a perfect score in Drinking Water System inspections performed by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). The MOE inspections involved up to 14 different aspects of operations including drinking water quality, water quality monitoring programs and operator certiďŹ cation. A perfect score on this inspection reďŹ&#x201A;ects what many of us residents take for granted and what those who leave Ottawa realize quickly: Ottawa has some of the best tap water in the world. Building Permits Up Meanwhile, new statistics show that our economy is continuing to grow and we see new opportunities for job creation in the skilled trades sector. Many think of Ottawa as entirely a government town BUT AT A TIME WHEN THE &EDERAL 'OVERNMENT IS SHRINKING its workforce, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population is growing and our economy is diversifying. This growth means more demand for both residential and commercial buildings across our city. In 2013 that demand pushed our housing and construction project activity to have 20% construction applications than they did in 2012. In real terms, 2013 saw the City of Ottawa receive $2.4 billion worth of construction applications versus $2 billion in 2012. These ďŹ gures show that Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is moving along at a strong pace and that Ottawa is transforming itself for the better. At City Hall we recognize that growth at this level brings challenges to our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure and our ability to deliver services to all residents across Ottawa. But these are challenges that we work hard every day to meet. I am proud that we have built recreation centres in some of THECITYSFASTESTGROWINGNEIGHBOURHOODSANDEXTENDED our road, water and sewer networks so that every resident of Ottawa can enjoy all that our city has to offer (including great tap water) wherever they may live.

That’s exactly what Sung Joo Park, a self-employed caterer, did after she turned 60. Park, 76, lives in a rented apartment in Mississauga. Her husband, Jong Joo Park, 82, died earlier this year. Neither one of them had a private pension plan. “It’s hard,” she said. “Life was a lot easier 20 years ago.” Eng is calling on Ontario to make workplace

pension plans mandatory. “It has to come into existence and somebody has to create it,” she said. Details on an Ontario plan still need to be ironed out. The plan though would likely be run by an independent organization at arms-length from the provincial government. It would also use a defined contribution system that allows workers the choice to opt out. Sousa is keen on the idea of a mandatory system with an opt-out clause, similar to what’s being done in Quebec and also in other countries. The Liberals remain steadfast on introducing new reforms. But any new pension would have to be approved by the Ontario legislature where the Liberals hold minority status. If the opposition parties vote down the government, the province will face an election, and a pension scheme for Ontario could be put on hold.

Nothing is guaranteed, not even your private pension LOUIE ROSELLA Staff

News - If you’re enrolled in a pension plan, chances are your money is safe. Maybe. Perry Quinton, vice-president of marketing at Investor Education Fund (IEF), a non-profit organization founded by the Ontario Securities Commission, says anyone who is either looking for work or already employed should view privately-funded pension plans as a necessity. “It can be free money that if you don’t sign up for it, you’re not going to get it,” she says. “Any kind of in-

centive that forces you to save money is brilliant.” Quinton and her organization say there are mainly two types of private pension plans offered in Ontario: • a defined benefit pension plan, where the employer promises a specified monthly benefit on retirement that is pre-determined by a formula. It’s up to the employer to deliver what they promised when you retire. If a plan doesn’t have enough money, the employer will have to put more money into the fund. • a defined contribution pension plan or Group Registered Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP), in which

40 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, May 1, 2014

both you and your employer can put money into the plan. In either case, a trust company or insurance company holds this money in a separate account for you. You, not the company, own that money. Even if your employer goes bankrupt, your money is safe. Of course, you can always lose some or all of your money if the market crashes or if you don’t invest it wisely, the IEF says. Your pension plan should not run out of money if the employer manages the fund properly, Quinton says. Even if the worst happens, some of your pension savings may be protected. In Ontario, most employers of

defined benefit plans pay a yearly fee to Ontario’s Pensions Benefits Guarantee Fund. This fund insures the first $1,000 of an employee’s monthly pension in case the employer goes bankrupt. It’s the only fund of this type in Canada. However, not even this unique fund will guarantee that an employee gets all of his/her promised pension, Quinton says, noting the infamous Nortel Networks bankruptcy case in which employees didn’t receive all of their promised pension. Should an employee be fired or choose to leave the company, depending on the type of plan, he/she may

have the option of transferring their pension earnings into another plan, Quinton says. They could also leave it where it is and collect at time of retirement or transfer into a locked-in retirement savings account (LIRA), which works much like an RRSP. There is always the chance that a company chooses to shut down its pension plan, which it can do at anytime. “If the plan was properly funded, you should get everything you have earned so far,” Quinton says. However, if the plan was underfunded, you may not get all you’re promised, Quinton says.

Five more shows for Rural Rootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Things My Mother Taught Me Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Rural Root Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10th anniversary season was expected to be off to a hilarious start with last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Wednesday) opening of its spring play, Things My Mother Taught Me, at the Constance and Buckhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Community Centre. The play continues with shows this week (May 1, 2 and 3) and next (May 7 and 8) at 7:30 p.m. The play tells the story of young couple, Gabe and Olivia, who are moving across the country and into an apartment together for the first time. Their moving day does not go exactly as planned and things get even more complicated when their parents show up to help with the move. Can two neurotic mothers and two drunken fathers save the day? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story that is sure to touch a chord with West Carleton audiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to worry about your children regardless. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your job as a parent,â&#x20AC;? explains Valerie Maier, who plays Oliviaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Karen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to teach them everything you know and hope that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the mistakes that you did. But you get to a point where they have to leave the nest and you have to encourage them to do that.â&#x20AC;? Getting to opening night involves weeks and weeks of hard work - both on the stage and behind the scenes. There are lines to memorize, costumes to make, sets to build and paint, lights

When the lights go up for each performance of Things My Mother Taught Me, stage manager Mandy SauvĂŠ will be watching intently from the technical desk behind the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The stage managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role is to make sure that everything happens smoothly on the stage - from when the actors walk on to when the lights go up,â&#x20AC;? SauvĂŠ explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I just sit very quietly at the back of the hall whispering, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go, go, go!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and make sure that all the cues happen on the stage. If something goes wrong, I need to quickly find a solution.â&#x20AC;? Adding to the laughter on stage is Ivo Mokros, who plays Gabeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Wyatt. As president of Rural Rootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors, Mokros says this season is an important milestone for the troupe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ten years is significant for any company. The fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve survived and keep putting on better and

better shows every time out is a huge achievement. Our audiences have been good to us and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown over the years.â&#x20AC;? As for the future? If new member, Valerie Maierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience is anything to go by, Rural Root has many good years ahead of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole experience has been fabulous,â&#x20AC;? explains Maier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of the warmest community theatre companies I have ever encountered really accepting and very supportive.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Things My Mother Taught Me cost $12 for weeknights and $15 for Friday and Saturday performances. They can be booked online at ruralroot.org/boxoffice or by

Gripping courtroom drama to hit Kanata Theatre stage Arts – Contrary to popular belief, ‘Inherit the Wind’ is not simply about the debate between creation and evolution highlighted in the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925. There three-time U.S. presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan and famous attorney Clarence Darrow locked horns. Instead, this famous play uses the setting of the trial to debate the individual’s right to have contrary ideas and the freedom to express them. None are as passionate about ideas as the young, so it comes as no surprise that Rachel Davies, a recent Canterbury Arts graduate, should be drawn to the eloquent script and want to see it performed on the Kanata Theatre stage May 13 to 24. “Inherit the Wind presents many important issues such as freedom of thought and the importance of progress,” says Davies.

“Questioning and re-evaluating how we think, what we do, and how we do it are key ways to progress forward as individuals and as a society. “I see many parallels between the play and our world today. The foremost for me is the lack of progress in our education systems. It takes an inordinate amount of time for new material to be allowed in the classrooms, just as it did back then. For example, many sexual education and mental health curricula have not been updated since the 1990s to include new research. “For me, the greatest challenge is the scope of this play. It is such a massive production and a very well-known play, so there are many standards to live up to.” Davies brings more than youthful enthusiasm to her task. Along with her Canterbury credit, she was part of an ensemble at

the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and studied at the Stratford Shakespeare School. She shares her first directing stint with veteran actor/director Alain Chamsi. “Alain has been very gracious to help guide me through my first time directing,” she says. “It has been a challenge, but a very rewarding one.

Low-income advocacy group lobbies for cheaper Internet access Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - For Ottawa’s Robert Fitzpatrick, the Internet is a lifeline. Without online access to services, the U.S. resident says he wouldn’t even be able to live in Canada with his Canadian wife. “If it wasn’t for the Internet, I wouldn’t even be here right now,” said Fitzpatrick. He said the Internet allows him to regularly connect with Immigration Canada and fill out the necessary forms in his quest for Canadian citizenship, which is especially important because there is no immigration office near his home. But, he says, the $70 price tag he pays every month is too high, and has, in the past, made it tough for him and his wife to stretch their dollars. They’ve even turned to the food bank during tough times. This prompted Fitzpatrick to join about 40 members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a low-income advocacy group with chapters in Ottawa, and march 10 kilometres through the downtown on April 17. They are calling

on Bell, Rogers, Telus, and the federal government to provide people living below the low-income measure with high-speed Internet for $10 a month. “Fight, fight, fight. Internet is a right,” ACORN members chanted near the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights at the corner of Elgin and Lisgar streets. Some walked while others navigated their wheelchairs in a loop that took them past the Parliament Buildings as well as Industry Minister James Moore’s Queen Street office. ACORN members chose to begin and end their rally at the human rights memorial to reflect a 2011 United Nations report stating Internet access is a human right. “And I agree with that because I cannot even begin to describe all the ways that people are connected … with the Internet,” Fitzpatrick said. ACORN cites a 2010 Statistics Canada report outlining the disparity in access between high and low-income earners. About 54 per cent of households that earn $30,000 or less had home Internet access, whereas 97 per cent of households making $87,000 or more

ERIN MCCRACKEN/METROLAND

With megaphone in hand, Kathleen Fortin leads the way at the start of a 10-kilometre march in downtown Ottawa, April 17. She joined about 40 members of ACORN, a national advocacy group for low-income earners, to call on telecommunications companies to provide $10-a-month Internet access to those in need. were connected online. Figures released in a 2012 Statistics Canada Internet usage survey tell a similar story. Almost all those households surveyed making $94,000 or more had home Internet access, while 58 per cent of

households earning $30,000 or less were connected online. But the advocacy group points to promising developments south of the border where Comcast launched an Internet program in 2011, offering low-speed Internet for

about $10 a month, free Internet training and the chance to purchase a low-cost computer. ACORN’s members are also closely watching Toronto, where Rogers launched a pilot program last August to provide high-speed Internet to some

community housing residents for about $10 a month, as well as the opportunity to buy a refurbished $150 computer. “It’s something that is a huge part of everybody’s life, and, like food or anything else I think that there should be easier and less costly access, especially for kids nowadays,” said Jaye Rutter. She attended the rally because she says she pays $79.95 a month to connect online, which eats into her grocery budget. “You can’t find a job the old way anymore,” she added. “You can’t even go in and bring in a resume. Everything is through the computer. It’s like a telephone. It’s necessary.” For some, like Fitzpatrick, free Internet access at Ottawa library branches is neither convenient, nor easily accessible. Because of his visual impairment, Fitzpatrick must hook up a device to a computer that reads words on the screen to him. But he isn’t able to plug his portable screen reader into a library computer. “A library computer would not be the best solution,” he said.

Governor General to host movie nights Staff

Progress slow on Ottawa homelessness problem michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Alliance to End Homelessness says the city needs to work hard if it wants to get its grades up to end homelessness. In the alliance’s 10th progress report, it indicates not much has changed in the past decade since the group, which represents homeless organizations across the city, began grading the city. “It’s a mixed picture of progress,” said Tim Aubry, a University of Ottawa professor who compared this year’s report to the one report released in 2004. “It’s virtually unchanged,” he said. “When you look at affordability, the dial has not moved in the past 10 years. Rents continue to rise faster than people’s income.” The alliance’s executive director Mike Bulthuis agreed with Aubry, stating there is still much work to do but there was also some good news. “Though progress in some areas over the past decade has been slow, at the same time there is reason to hope,”

Bulthuis said. “Our community is rich with knowledge on how to prevent and end homelessness. Efforts have been bolstered since 2011 by the city’s annual $14 million Housing and Homelessness Investment Plan.” According to the report, the city scored an ‘A’ for the decline of individuals spending time in emergency shelters. According to the report, the target the alliance set last year was for the city to reduce the number of people seeking and staying in emergency shelters by 500. In total 548 fewer people used shelters in 2013. The alliance also reviewed the length people stay at a shelter. A total of 6,705 people stayed at a shelter in the past year. The alliance’s target for reducing the length of stay was three days per year, but in average people were found to stay in a shelter for at least four days. “Longer shelter stays reflect an extreme shortage of affordable housing opportunities in the community,” the

Why? In 2013, City Council approved new Official Plan policies to create a more liveable Ottawa. To put these policies into action, the Zoning By-law needs to be updated. The 2014 Zoning Review will make that happen. How? Zoning affects how land can be used on both public and private properties. Things like types of housing, shops, schools, industries, as well as building heights and building densities. The right zoning will make sure our streets and neighbourhoods develop in ways that encourage vibrant, liveable places for all to enjoy How will this affect me? Zoning changes will provide greater certainty for residents, developers, businesses and others, about what to expect when it comes to future development in the review areas.

Bulthuis, who took over the role of executive director last November, said the results may reflect poorly on the city, but it is not only the city that is responsible. “To be successful we will need all levels of government to work together,” he said. The city has adopted a 10year end homelessness plan, the Home for Everyone, which aims at ending homelessness in this city in the next 10 years; something the alliance believes is possible if everyone does manage to work together. “Now is the time to sustain and enhance our investments, reducing long-term costs to the public purse,

In an effort to help the cause, a group of Westboro men have organized an annual luncheon aimed at raising $20,000 for the alliance and two of its members, Operation Come Home and St. Luke’s Table. Alliance board member Mike Coe who helps facilitate the event with the group said he feels the event is a great and wonderful way people can help make a difference for the homeless. “It helps out a lot, which is wonderful,” Coe said.

decline of 7.6 per cent over 2012, with a particularly encouraging decrease among families (17.9 per cent less) and single women (9.7 per cent less) Average Length of Shelter Stay: F The 2013 report card states that longer shelter stays reflect an extreme shortage of affordable housing opportunities in the community, particularly for larger families needing larger units and for single individuals needing housing with supports. The average length of stay increased on average by four days, to 73, but the stays for families increased by an alarming 88 to 98 days on average. New Affordable Housing: D The alliance states only 185 new affordable housing options (a combination of new units, rent supplements and housing allowances) were created in 2013, following two previous years which saw over 700 created, and well short of our target of 1,000. Special mention is due to the City of Ottawa, for allocating $1 million to save 344 provincially funded housing allowances that would have ended. Affordability: F The 2013 report card states, the poorest in our community fall well short of having enough income to access housing that is affordable. Modest increases in social assistance and discussion of a rise in the minimum wage, offer hope – but the rates of increase are disappointing.

with Clean Eating and Active Living Setting Goals is the

Your Body Type &

Cravings

Key!

When your body is out of balance, your cravings are about your body trying to provide stimulation for the dominant organ which is related to your body type. So what can you do? If you crave: 1. SWEETS & CARBS - your dominant body type is THRYOID Your Solution: Reduce soy and raw cruciferous veggies ( kale, cabbage, broccoli, etc. ). Increase Coconut oil, which contains lauric acid, to promote optimal thyroid function and metabolism.

2. SALT & FAT - your dominant body type is ADRENAL Your Solution: Reduce caffeine & alcohol. Increase almonds which are rich in magnesium.

3. RICH & SPICY - your

wine and increase lemons to help balance hormones.

4. DAIRY - your dominant body type is PITUITARY. Your Solution: Decrease potassium rich avocado, which tends to be reduced in this body

Preparation Time: 10 min | Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 cup Coconut water helps to infuse the body with energy boosting electrolytes, while the coconut oil stimulates your metabolism. Perfect for that hot summer day or after a workout. 1 very ripe banana, frozen ½ cup pineapple, diced plus 1 wedge for garnish 2 cups ice cubes

If you are consistent, you will make progress. One way to ensure your consistency is to make simple, highly achievable goals for yourself. You must ensure that you are 90-100% confident that you can stick to the goal for 30 days. If you feel any less confident, you must modify and simplify the goal until you feel it is achievable. For instance, instead of saying “I will cut sugar completely out of my diet”, which may be unrealistic, say “I will only have sugar on the weekends.” Therefore, you are still making a healthy lifestyle change, but one that is easily attainable. Reaching a short term goal and then setting new ones is key to long term success!

NATURE

Connected to your community

Creativity Blitz planned for High Lonesome Nature Reserve News - What better way to explore your own creativity than in the natural beauty of the 200-acre High Lonesome Nature Reserve, a Pakenham-area property conserved in perpetuity by the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy. On this Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., young and old alike are invited to participate in the first ever Creativity Blitz at this oasis of tranquility in the Pakenham Hills. Join with others and connect with nature and explore your creative side. Admission is free. Registration opens at 9 a.m. on

May 3. There will be volunteers available to get participants started. Some of the possibilities include: • Arranging natural materials and objects found on the ground into your creative piece; • Bringing your own art supplies, musical instrument, poetry book, journal; • Coming with nothing but a willingness to open your eyes, ears and senses. Let your imagination soar, urge organizers. No artistic experience is necessary and there will be many opportunities to participate in collaborative cre-

ative projects with mentors around to prompt and encourage. The emphasis is on creativity and nature – not art or artists. Three special ‘wow’ spots have been selected as focal points, but with the eight kilometres of trails winding through woodlands, by beaver ponds and through meadows, participants may just find that special spot that speaks to their soul and cries out for creative expression. There may be no Maypole, but dance around your favourite tree. Once you have completed your creation, take it for immediate display in the barn or submit a photo,

a short video or a CD as a keepsake of your creativity and a tribute to the inspirational value of nature. On Sunday, continue on with your own creative project or simply appreciate the creative pieces on display. Maps will be provided. The Creativity Blitz takes place rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather. Stay for the day: You can bring your own lunch and enjoy it outdoors. Directions: • Take County Road 29 to Pakenham Village; • Turn on Waba Road and continue

west for 2.9 kilometres; • Turn left on Barr Side Road; • Travel for 1.6 km; • Take the first left at Carbine Road and drive 4 km to 867 Carbine Rd. and you have arrived. A map with directions can be found on the MMLTC website at mmltc.ca. For more information, visit the website, send an email to Jacquie. christiani@bell.net or call 613-6245530.

Fluffy flat out refuses to like garden idea Mother, who was dead set against any pets in the house, allowed me to keep Fluffy, but only until she was grown enough to move to the barn growing seeds along. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell what the plants were to become, and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure Mother knew either. So to take the mystery out of it all, Mother laced the empty seed packet onto a little stick and there was one in each box identifying what was planted. Very clever indeed, was my AUCTION SALE mother. For Jack Lapping & Guests There was still a Sat.

Lifestyle - The seeds from Steele-Briggs has long since arrived in the mail. Mother had little wood flats laid out all over the downstairs of the house. Every day I checked looking for sprouts of life, and when I saw some that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been there before, I was as excited as if I was

witness to a birth, which, in a way, it was. Some of the boxes filled the window sills, and space on the bake table had been taken over, and that table pushed close to the window that looked out into the grape arbour. Mother tried to capture as much sunlight as possible to help her

arms and circled the boxes, putting firmly in my mind how tall each sprig was, so that in the morning I could check to see what growth had taken place over the night. Mother, who was dead set against any pets in the house, allowed me to keep Fluffy, but only until she was grown enough to move to the barn. And with her in my arms, I would talk to her about the plants and how once they had been tiny little seeds, sure in my mind that she knew every word I was saying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those have grown a good inch,â&#x20AC;? Mother said that night, as she took a teaspoon and poked at

ten, and even I knew the sprouts were beyond repair. Mother said I could take the wood box out to the junk pile behind the silo when I was at it. Still in my pyjamas, with Fluffy under one arm, and the box of soil and flattened sprouts in the other, I headed for the silo. Fluffy spent the rest of her days with the rest of the barn cats well away from the house. Litter boxes were unheard of back in those days, but you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a university degree to tell you the smell coming from the wood box held more than a few dozen would-be vegetable plants.

the earth around the little plants coming to life in the box under the window. I wanted to believe her, but to me they looked exactly as they did two days before. Firmly holding Fluffy, I got down on my knees and smelled the little plants. All I could smell was earth. I put Fluffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nose close too, but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem the least bit interested in whether or not the plants were showing any sign of life. Sometimes I sneaked Fluffy upstairs to my bedroom, which I shared with my older sister Audrey. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put her under

my bed on a folded blanket. That night I put her in her small cardboard box behind the Findlay Oval, because the house had cooled down, and I knew she would be as snug as a bug in a rug. I wakened the next morning to Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yelling up the stairwell for me to get down to the kitchen, and I better make it fast! Wiping the sleep from my eyes I followed Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pointing figure to the flat box of sprouts under the kitchen window. There was Fluffy, stretched out as neat as you please, on top of what was just about ready for planting. With orders to remove â&#x20AC;&#x153;that catâ&#x20AC;? immediately, and to get her right out to the barn, and she was never to darken the door again, Mother stopped only long enough to repeat once again that animals belong in the barn.

Shadow Queen author to visit library Karen DeLuca Arnprior Public Library

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior Public Library in partnership with the Arnprior Book Shop is pleased to host bestselling author Sandra Gulland this Sunday, May 4.

Gullandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest book is a seductive gripping novel about the lure and illusion of power and black magic. The Shadow Queen is set in Paris in 1660. Publisher Harper Collins describes the novel as follows: â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the daughter of itinerant ac-

tors who once lit up the Parisian stages, Claudette always thought her future lay in the theatre. But a series of chance encounters pull her into the alluring orbit of the most powerful woman in France, Athenais de Montespan, the unofficial mistress to Louis XIV and reigning .Shadow

Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Gulland is known for attention to historical detail. She is the author of the best selling trilogy based on the life of Josephine Bonaparte, wife of Napoleon, in which she recreates the astonishing world of a young girl who transforms herself into one of the most powerful women in history. The Josephine novels are a sweep-

ing tale of love and loss, political intrigue and revolution during one of the most tumultuous periods in European history. Tickets cost $15 and still available at the Arnprior Book Shop and at the library. The author presentation will begin at 1 p.m. on May 4 in the library. A reception will follow hosted by the Friends of the Library.

Realtors mark end of cold weather by collecting snowsuit donations Lifestyle – Arnprior’s Century 21 Explorer Realty has announced its continued support of the Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) and its Operation Snowsuit. Finally the winter snow has melted, so children are probably now ready to move into spring jackets, and leave those outgrown winter ones behind. Century 21 Explorer is trying to get a

jump on the winter of 2015 by collecting donations of clean, gently used winter outerwear right now (and through into the fall). If you have winter clothing items that need a new home, please consider taking them to the Century 21 Explorer office at 201 Daniel St. South from Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 pm. Call 613-622-7759 for more information.

Also, note that new snowsuits and other winter wear are also gratefully accepted. Donated items will be distributed by CPAN to local families in need of assistance. “Let’s start preparing now to keep these children warm, and able to enjoy our Canadian winter of 2015,” urge the staff of Century 21 Explorer Realty. “Thanks for your continued support.”

58 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, May 1, 2014

Arts - Travel under the sea with students from Stonecrest Elementary School during a production of The Little Mermaid. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical features 80 cast and 25 crew members in Grades 5 through 8. All the lead roles are shared, with various students taking the positions during the three evening performances on May 7, 8 and 9. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical has been the most challenging to organize, said teacher Craig Gibson, co-directing with Karen Summers. During auditions no students were turned away; positions and parts were found for anyone who wanted to take part. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we auditioned, one of the questions I asked was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why do you want to be part of the production?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Gibson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple answered that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been a part of anything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big family, the drama club.â&#x20AC;? Emily Shriner was cast as Ursula because of her powerful presence on stage. Another student volunteered to be Emilyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understudy, even though she was told she likely wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get stage time as the Sea Witch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Emily) gave up one night to her understudy,â&#x20AC;? said Gibson. Emily told him she wanted the other student to have a chance on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the whole spirit of the production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes it all worthwhile.â&#x20AC;? Casting for the play began in December, with rehearsals kicking off in January. Every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, the cast and crew devote two hours after classes to running lines, practicing songs and learning choreography. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theatre is one of our oldest, simplest ways of entertainment,â&#x20AC;? said Gibson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more special when you have elementary school kids put on the production. You just see the love of being up on stage.â&#x20AC;? The school has fundraised for a number of years for the production and has been able to purchase professional sound and lighting, effects and costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get so excited when they see the costumes,â&#x20AC;? Gibson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you get the best acting out of them when they feel amazing.â&#x20AC;? Gibson said this way heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also able to spend more time with the students making sure everything is going smoothly. The students were practicing two of their final scenes on April 23 on the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brand new stage. As they worked through the lines, Gibson gave them feedback to help pump their performance and to create maximum impact for the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want the focus on the kids,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Showcase what our kids can do out here.â&#x20AC;? Performances take place on May 7, 8 and 9, at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office at 613832-5527 or by emailing Gibson at craig.gibson@ocdsb.ca.

Huntley bottle hunt

News - Drinking a morning cup of coffee, a sacred ritual for many Ottawa residents, could be doing more good than you think. No, scientists haven’t infused the java with extra vitamins or found a way for it to whiten your teeth, unfortunately, but some Ottawa businesses have found a way to turn the caffeine habit into a donation to the Ottawa School Breakfast Program.

Huntley Centennial’s Josh Dillon, left, and Morgan Jones wait for their classmates to return with empty bottles during last Saturday’s drive. They are raising money for the upcoming Grade 8 graduation. It was busy morning, despite the rain, with runners taking over the village and Beavers also going door to door.

OPEN HOUSE, SUNDAY, MAY 4, 2 - 4PM

Developers keen on pairing suburban parks with schools Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Developers say the city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really reaching its intensification goals in the suburbs, even if homes seem more densely packed. While houses might be crammed closer together, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean space in the entire community is well-used, said Frank Cairo of Caivan Communities, one of the developers that participated in a forum discussion on how to builder better suburbs on April 24. A good 70 per cent of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;urbanâ&#x20AC;? residents live in the suburbs, said Alain Miguelez, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program manager of intensification and zoning, and tremendous growth in the suburbs is highlighting the need to fix up how communities outside the Greenbelt are designed. Half the land in a new suburban community is written off before developers begin laying out where the homes go, said Rob Pierce, land development director for Monarch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes it hard to hit those intensification targets,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing our parts ... need to look at the other stakeholders and how they can use their land more efficiently.â&#x20AC;?

Infighting and â&#x20AC;&#x153;turf warsâ&#x20AC;? between utility agencies and other players vying for land in the suburbs, such as schools and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks department, often lead to a bloated amount of public space set aside for all those elements, said Pierre Dufresne, president of the Greater Ottawa Home Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association and vice president with Tartan Homes, who also participated in the discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we take a piece of land and more than 50 per cent of it is provided for other interests before the first house is built, it limits our ability to meet the intensification policies in the (cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) Official Plan to the extent we otherwise could.â&#x20AC;? Nitty-gritty topics like where to place hydro boxes on lawns and how wide roads should be are some of the topics that will help the city drill down to create better standards for the elements it requires when new suburban communities are built. The planning committee will receive a report on â&#x20AC;&#x153;guiding principlesâ&#x20AC;? for the Building Better Suburbs project at its meeting on May 13. The overall project has been extended into the fall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was

supposed to wrap up before the summer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a final report is expected in November. There will be another public forum in the fall where residents can view and comment on the suggested changes before they go to the planning committee for final approval, said Lee Anne Snedden, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of policy development and urban design. Initial public consultations happened last fall. Developers are happy to be involved in the process because in the case of building new communities, they serve as the main voice for consumers and future residents, Cairo said. One of the big topics developers are looking forward to is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new willingness to pair parks with school sites. The major example of that is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insistence that parks be separated from school sites. A recent example saw the city require a fence to be built between a park and the neighbouring school yard in the Avalon development in Cumberland, said Coun. Stephen Blais. Parents shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to sign waivers for their kids to cross from a schoolyard into a city park, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Discussion at the forum in-

dicated the city is now more willing to look at things like joining city parks with schoolyards. Dufresne also suggested looking at putting stormwater management ponds in parks as a natural feature, instead of finding other additional space for the ponds. That would be a throwback to the way it used to work before amalgamation, and developers welcome that, he said. The old city halls were smaller and developers could work more directly with city staff across the different departments, he said. Integration between all the players involved in constructing new communities is key moving forward, said a number of councillors and developers involved in the discussion.

Scouts urge everyone to do good turns for a few hours. “Good Turn Week follows the principles of Scouting that teach youth to always do good turns for other people, but it’s also about encouraging Canadians of all ages to reach out and do something kind for someone else,” said Kaylee Galipeau, National Youth Commissioner and Chair of the National Youth Network for Scouts Canada. “Each act of kindness can make a difference in the lives of the recipient and contribute to a cycle of goodwill that fosters friendlier and happier communities. “So we want to know, what will your Good Turn be?”

Canadians can share their good turns with Scouts Canada's 100,000 youth members and adult volunteers by submitting it via Scouts. ca/goodturn or sharing on facebook.com/scoutscanada or Twitter using #goodturn. In celebration of Good Turn Week’s fifth anniversary, Scouts Canada youth in communities across the country are taking on large-scale good turn projects such as building portable libraries, refurbishing a community room and cleaning hiking trails in order to bring the week to Canadians.

R0012675568

Lifestyle – Canada’s Scouting movement challenged all Canadians to join them in Good Turn Week April 24 to May 4 by doing at least one good turn for someone else and asking the recipient to pay it forward, creating a cycle of goodwill across the country. There are countless simple good turns that only take a moment to do, notes Scouts Canada. In a news release, the Scouts suggest 10 easy good turns: • hold a door open for a stranger; • give up your seat on public transit to someone in need; • make a batch of your favourite cookies and share them with your friends or colleagues; • clean out the closet and donate clothes, toys and books to charity or take old towels and sheets to the animal shelter; • spend the afternoon helping out at a local charity; • help an elderly neighbour with grocery shopping or a household chore; • buy a homeless person a meal; • help someone out who is short of change at the store checkout; • buy a coffee for the person in line behind you; • give the gift of relaxation by offering to look after a friend or family member’s children

Venturer Scout Sarah Djuric, 16, is all smiles as she holds the door to an Elmvale Acres Shopping Centre coffee shop. This is just one random act of kindness she planned to perform during Scouts Canada’s annual Good Turn Week, which is running April 26 to May 4.

This award was shared with Haunted Walk Ottawa, Bytown Museum and Ottawa Jail Hostel. During the Halloween season, the Haunted Walk offered three unique tour options with its partners, including the Diefenbunker’s “Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure.” These tours attracted new and younger audiences to the facilities and presented heritage interpretation in an altogether new light. Congratulations to all involved!

WASTE MANAGEMENT COMMUNITY INFORMATION AND COMMENT SESSION

A Community Information and Comment Session has been scheduled for May 6, from 6:30-9:00pm at NeXT Restaurant, at 6400 Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. Waste Management is hosting the meeting and will present information on their proposed zoning amendment application for the expanded landfill. City planning staff will be in attendance and their role is to outline the process for zoning and public input, as well as to listen to comments and questions and to obtain names and contact information from those wishing further information on the application, or to be notified of further action in relation to the file. The proposed use will serve as an extension to the adjacent existing use located at 2301 Carp Road. It will allow for the facility to accommodate industrial and commercial waste. The proposed zoning will see an additional use permitted under the existing zonings to include ‘waste processing and transfer facility’ and ‘solid waste disposal facility.’ The ultimate use would include a waste disposal facility, new vehicular entrance via Carp Road, a landscape buffer along Carp Road, infiltration basins, stormwater ponds, attendant booth, and weigh area, and public drop-off area. Existing buildings and parking are proposed to be retained. For additional information, please contact Cheryl McWilliams, Planning and Growth Management Department, City of Ottawa, tel: 613-580-2424, ext. 30234, fax: 613-580-2576, email: cheryl. mcwilliams@ottawa.ca

FLOWERS & HIGH TEA St Mary’s Anglican Church (2574 Sixth Line Rd.) is hosting their first annual Flowers & High Tea on Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10 (11am to 5pm both days) and you may catch me pouring tea on the Friday! Enjoy tea sandwiches and sweets. Bring your family and friends to view beautiful flower displays from local businesses, clubs, and groups. Bid on the flower displays available for auction and take it home for Mother’s Day! The cost is $12.50 for adults and $10 for seniors. Hats and gloves encouraged! Contact Liz (613-832-4571) or Lynda (613-832-1692).

PROPERLY DISPOSE OF YOUR LEAF AND YARD WASTE It has recently come to my attention that some residents on properties along the Ottawa River may be dumping their yard waste, leaves and grass clippings into the spring high water. This may seem to be a time saver, versus having to bag the waste or put in the green bin, but in fact all this does is pass along the clean-up task to neighbours downstream. Please remember that leaf and yard waste can be put in your green bin, or you can place separately at the curb on collection day.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS WEEK Are you ready? Emergencies can happen anytime, anyplace and often when we least expect them. Most of us keep a flashlight and first aid kit handy but are we really ready? The City will participate in Emergency Preparedness Week from May 4-10. Residents are being asked to build a more resilient community by taking the time to prepare themselves, their family and their neighbours for emergencies and disasters. This year’s theme, Partners in Preparedness, will highlight the value of partnerships throughout the community between people and organizations, including City of Ottawa departments, in preparing for emergencies. For information and ideas about what you can do to be more prepared, visit ottawa.ca/areyouready or contact Ottawa Emergency Management at 613-580-2424, ext. 28078 or by email: areyouready@ottawa.ca 0501.R0012675107 64 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, May 1, 2014
