The future of Camp Woolsey, a Girl Guide camp in West Carleton which has been a destination for Guides from across the Ottawa area for 80 years, is now in doubt. Not for the Ontario Council of Girl Guides of Canada which has announced plans to close and sell Camp Woolsey along with the other Guiding-owned camps across the province by the year 2020 but certainly for parents and others with connections to the Guiding community in Ottawa who have launched a campaign #Save Woolsey to try to save Camp Woolsey. Andrea Hogue Reynolds, a former Guide and now a parent of two girls, has launched a crowdfunding campaign with a $25,000 goal and is also part of a group that is going to look at options of how to support Camp Woolsey to prevent its closure and sale. This group met for the first time last week, not long after the initial June 19 announcement from Guiding’s Ontario Council about the closure decision. The group will be looking at ways to increase revenues and decrease expenses related to Camp Woolsey in the hope that it could become self-sustaining and gain a reprieve from the Ontario Council decision. A mailing list is being compiled of those interested in helping with the campaign, already with about 60 names on it as word circulates in the community about the announced closure. Reynolds says that she is receiving lots of messages from people in the Guiding community or former members who want to help. See GOFUNDME, page 3

GoFundMe campaign viewed as just ‘step 1’ Continued from page 1
She admits that the Ontario Council did not indicate if the decision about certain camps like Camp Woolsey would be reconsidered if they became self-sustaining but she hopes that the GoFundMe campaign that she has started will open that door of reconsideration. The campaign, she feels, will show Ontario Council that the local Guiding community really wants to save Camp Woolsey. She notes that the Camp Woolsey site was originally purchased in 1938 thanks to fundraising efforts by the Guiding community and she is hoping to save it through a similar effort. The group that has been formed will be looking at ways to increase revenues such as more use of the site by outside groups while decreasing costs, perhaps by more use of volunteer labour and donated supplies for maintenance. A major concern, though, remains how to handle big ticket items like roof replacement on the buildings at the camp. The GoFundMe campaign may generate the funds to help subsidize such work. The GoFundMe campaign #Save Woolsey
had an initial goal of $10,000 and generated $1,500 in contributions within three hours. The fundraising goal has now been increased to $25,000. All funds raised will go toward efforts to save Camp Woolsey. Other ideas of how to increase fundraising for Camp Woolsey will be discussed by the group. The GoFundMe campaign is just “step 1” in the fundraising process. The group welcomes anyone who wants to become involved. You can connect to the group through the Google form https://goo.gl/forms/ WLvVK9xxINM8Jkjw2. The group will be holding regular meetings in the future. Ontario Council has not yet announced when each camp would close, only indicating in its closure announcement that some camps would close in 2017, some in 2018 and the remainder in 2019. There are 17 such camps across the province. Reynolds says that as a parent, her first knowledge of the closure of Camp Woolsey was when Ontario Council announced the closure plan. She herself attended Camp Woolsey as a Guide and says that it was a “wonderful
childhood experience” that helped shape who she is. One of her daughters, Leah, has attended Camp Woolsey once while her younger daughter Charlotte is now just starting Sparks. She does not want her daughters to miss the Camp Woolsey experiences that she herself enjoyed. She wants to see Camp Woolsey remain in place for future generations of girls as a spot where they can learn about the environment and, indeed, about themselves. Closure and sale of Guiding camps across the province, as announced by Ontario Council on June 19, would end the long-standing tradition of year-round camping at Girl Guide camps in the province. Outdoor camping would still be a part of the Guide program but it would not occur at Guide owned camps. The Ontario Council has been grappling with what to do about its camp properties since 2007 when the operating deficits of these properties were identified as a major issue.

Operating loss of $69,636 for Camp Woolsey in 2015 Continued frm page 3
Decisions were made in 2009 that resulted in the sale of half of the Guide owned or leased properties to lessen the collective deficit and to provide funds that could be used for maintenance required at the retained sites. The Ontario Council’s financial statement for Camp Woolsey for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015 shows an operating loss of $69,636 which
includes $7,182 in depreciation expenses. Operating losses related to Camp Woolsey for the years preceding 2015 have been $62,732 in 2014, $62,074 in 2013, $67,902 in 2012 and $85,849 in 2011. Overall, across the province, the collective operating deficit from all Guide camp properties has been $778,440 in 2015, $764,401 in 2014, $638,343 in 2013, $634,493 in 2012 and SkilBilt Construction Inc. is an Ottawa based renovation company specializing in residential renovations and smaller scale commercial projects.

$721,086 in 2011. During this five year period, no camp increased its unit rental usage enough to have a significant impact on the revenue. Each camp took measures in cutting back on expenses which has reduced expenses but each camp is now operating on a threadbare expense budget due to lack of revenue growth. For Camp Woolsey specifically, work that will need to be done at the camp over the next 15 years will cost an estimated $430,189. This work includes replacement of sloped asphalt shingled roof systems, exterior wall, window and door repairs, replacement of the original single glazed windows throughout the camp, replacement of a concrete block foundation for one building, minor repairs to the structural elements of various buildings, replacement of the interior finishes in one building following completion of a mould survey, regular repairs to interior finishes, repairs to various railing systems, inspections and repairs of on-site septic systems, replacement of the domestic hot water heater and improving on-site accessibility features. Camp Woolsey sits on a 96-acre site at 5029 Dunrobin Road. This is at the north end of the Dunrobin Road adjacent to the Ottawa River. The market value is set at $2.1 million. Camp Woolsey has served as a camp for Guides in the Ottawa area since 1938, part of a long tradition of Guide camping in the Ottawa area. The first Ottawa Guide camp happened in 1914 and the Guiding community rented camping sites over the new couple of decades. A search for a permanent campsite for the Ottawa area began in 1928 as there was a need for a camping spot where Guides could connect with nature. It was in 1938 that the local Guide
association purchased what is now the Camp Woolsey site. Mary Woolsey, wife of Major Edgar Charles Woolsey who was a Boer War and First World War veteran before becoming prominent in the lumber business, was president of the local Guide Association at the time of purchase. The future Camp Woolsey property was purchased through fundraising efforts by Girl Guides as well as donations from businesses. The Guides raised some funds through the sale not of cookies which is today’s major fundraising initiative by Guides but rather by the sale of doughnuts. Guides had begun using the site in July 1937, meaning that the site has been used for this purpose for 80 years now. The camp was officially opened on July 6, 1939 by Lady Campbell, wife of the British High Commissioner who named it Camp Woolsey. This opening and dedication ceremony was a celebration as the site was then fully owned and completely paid for by the Ottawa area Girl Guides. The log cabin at the site was named “Pinhey Cottage” at that time after Miss Pinhey who was one of the founding donors to the camp. Over the years, Camp Woolsey has hosted a number of dignitaries including H.R.H. Princess Alice who visited with her family in the summer of 1940 and Betty Clay, the youngest daughter of Lord and Lady Baden-Powell who visited in 1985. Camp Woolsey today has a trail system which campers can explore. This includes three marked trails that are great for hiking and nature discovery. See CAMP LOCATED, page 5

Making a confession: I do not enjoy gardening
fter 10 years of marriage I have decided it is time to come clean. I have made a confession to the Farmer. For many years I have been doing something just to make him happy — because I thought it was part of what he expected in a farmwife. However, despite my feigned enthusiasm and efforts, I have not enjoyed or excelled at this activity. No, it isn’t cooking — I have never pretended to relish spending time in the kitchen, so he had no illusions there. It’s gardening. I don’t like it. I once inherited a perennial garden. It came with the house that I bought in Barrhaven. What first appeared to be a huge responsibility turned out to be a joy and a retreat from the stresses of daily life. The plants took their turn each season coming into flower and I collected any seeds they dropped to replant for the following year. But there was no weeding involved. The plants were established so tightly together that weeds had no chance to grow. Occasionally I had to divide a plant and give half away to a friend, replenish the soil or relocate something that wasn’t flourishing in its current loca-
tion. I borrowed gardening books from the library, learned the Latin names for the plants and studied their habits. But I didn’t have to hoe grass under the soil or pull out a single dandelion. I even worked with a landscaper one summer, putting my new-found knowledge of suburban flower beds to good use. But in 2007, when I married the Farmer and he said he always had a vegetable garden, I bit off a little more than I could chew. I spoke too soon. I wanted to impress him so I said I would take on the role of chief gardener. All I needed him to do was turn over the soil each spring and add the occasional heap of well-composted manure. I would handle the rest, I said. It sounded like a good, manageable arrangement. I would show him that I planned to be a hands-on farmwife. Then we went through our first season. I don’t know if it is the manure or the soil in which the garden is planted but I just can’t control the weeds. Drought has taken out entire plantings one year, and flood has washed seeds away the next. This year we have a puppy who loves to race in circles in freshly
DIANA FISHER The Accidental Farmwife
‘It feels good to admit that a gardener I am not.’ planted soil. My garden didn’t stand a chance. In order to keep the grass at bay (for really that’s all there is in my garden) I have to be out there every couple of days, painted in sunscreen and doused in bug spray, hoe and trowel in hand. Over the Canada Day weekend I was too busy to garden and missed a few days. By the time I got out there again a nasty band of beetles had taken over
my potato plants. They ate the leaves down to the stems and laid fresh eggs on the stalks. I had to pick them off one by one — a messy, smelly business. Bugs eradicated, I moved my marigolds closer to the row of potatoes. Their scent is supposed to ward off pests. Next I set to pulling out clumps of grass that has grown as tall as my onion plants. After completing three rows, I straightened out my aching
back and surveyed the plot. I have two purple cabbages, six heads of lettuce, one cucumber plant, one tomato plant and a row of potatoes. Next to this I planted a pumpkin patch. It is truly the only thing that is thriving in my garden. My granddaughter Leti will be thrilled come Halloween. And the pumpkin vines will serve another purpose this year — they can block out the sun that makes the weeds grow between the vegetables. The Farmer doesn’t appreciate my pumpkins. He isn’t a fan of pumpkin pie and doesn’t understand why I planted them. Well, next year I think I’m going to turn the garden into a wildflower bed for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. I will spend my time and money at the Farmers’ Market instead of suffering over my own vegetable garden. I love the smell of sun-warmed tomatoes and onions but I can appreciate vegetables harvested by others even more. It feels good to admit that a gardener I am not. Maybe next year when we sell our cattle the Farmer will reclaim his role as chief gardener. We shall see. w w w. t h e a c c i d e n t a l f a r m w i f e. blogspot.com email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Better travel days lie ahead
etting around during major events is always a challenge in Ottawa, but one we should expect. So it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that Canada Day taxed our public services. OC Transpo was swamped, in part because it’s impossible to predict passenger demand that ebbs and flows with the weather. Then there was the challenge of having members of the Royal Family moved to and from Parliament Hill – more streets closed and buses stuck. One thing that could have been improved was the speed of security lines to access Parliament Hill. Too few entrances, too few staff, too few signs for the lineups, and too little food for those who persevered and made it onto the soggy grass. This city deals with VIPs and major celebrations throughout the year. It’s now summer and we’ll have more streets shut down in the coming weeks than we’ll see any other time of year. Plan accordingly – use transit, ride a bike or
walk. Even for folks in the suburbs, it’s possible to drive within cycling or walking distance of our big festivals, and then make an easy arrival. If you’re not planning to attend a festival or other event, check the traffic before you head out on your usual jaunts, just to make sure there’s no parade scheduled to block you in or out. There’s no use merely grumbling about traffic. New smartphone apps like Waze make it possible to check for traffic tie-ups before leaving home, and while on the road. And every time someone – maybe you – avoids congestion, the better off every other driver. You can be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Transit in Ottawa is about to take a great leap forward, with light rail about a year away. When the tunnels open and trains begin service, hundreds of city buses will disappear from downtown, and the payoff for motorists will finally be realized. Yes there are better days ahead in 2018. But for now, let’s enjoy the summer of 2017.
Bigger is not always better for a community
hat’s your picture of Canada Day 150? Is it happy folks on Parliament Hill with lots of flags and smiles? I hope. But I wonder if it will be another picture that sticks in your mind. That’s the one that shows the Mackenzie Bridge at rush hour with so many stuck buses on it that it’s impossible to count. That was four days before. The photo was accompanied by warnings that things might get worse. They did. Streets would be closed, barriers erected, normal patterns disrupted. That happens with big events. Canada Day would be the biggest ever and more preparations were needed to get ready for more people. Plus — a big plus — security. You wouldn’t expect things to be smooth under such circumstances and
CHARLES GORDON Funny Town they weren’t. People were angry already and the big event was days away. Meanwhile there were warnings about how bad the situation was expected to be. There would be security screening. Would there ever! Yet, as with all big events, many people had a fine time on the day, the people who got inside, the people who made it through the lineups. The show was great, the mood was good despite the rain. But too many people, way too many, were stuck on the outside. The lineups were too long, too disorganized.

too few bathrooms. A lot of people were disappointed. It’s not as if the authorities weren’t trying, both on the federal and the municipal side. It was just too big. Add in the rain, add in the extra security for the visiting royals, and it simply couldn’t work. And it probably won’t the next time either. In the aftermath, people will be asking whether it was all worth it. Partly the expense: many useful — and lasting — things could have been done with the money spend on the celebration. But also the sheer inconvenience of it. Should the people who live yearround in town have to put up with a major disruption in their lives for the sake of an event designed to attract tourists? And it wasn’t exactly a walk in the park for the tourists either. Could we, perhaps, go a bit smaller? There are those who say no, that the
city will never be respected as a G8 capital unless it is prepared to do things on a grand scale. And, to be fair, people with that attitude have brought improvements to our city life. Ottawa wouldn’t be in the National Hockey League if people hadn’t thought big. Big-thinking people in days gone by brought us some terrific museums, the National Arts Centre, a fine city hall and some ambitious festivals. Well, the city could handle such things without much strain. But there comes a time when the reach exceeds the grasp and the strain is too much. When that happens, the party only causes traffic jams, lineups and the celebratory mood is lost. Next year, which will be the 151st, we can safely think small. After that, we can join other cities that are also rethinking their attitude toward the
“big event.” No city in its right mind wants the Olympics any more. The goal is to find ways to celebrate on a human scale. We can learn from this. We better.

MacLaren excited about Trillium opportunity, chances by jake davies
MPP Jack MacLaren says his transition to the Trillium party is going well, and he can’t wait to represent the party in the 2018 election. MacLaren, the only sitting member of the young political party, knows he has his work cut out for him, but is looking forward to the effort. “The transition is going very well,” MacLaren said. “Some people might think this would be a traumatic period. Stressful and all that. But it’s the exact opposite.” The Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding MPP left the Progressive Conservative party on May 24 to join the Trillium Party of Ontario. Conservative party leader Patrick Brown maintains MacLaren was kicked out of caucus on May 28 for “once again… making comments that are unacceptable.” MacLaren spoke to the West Carleton Review at his office on Monday, July 10, stating he was disillusioned with the direction of the Conservatives under the leadership of Brown. Despite being called a key player in Brown’s successful 2015 leadership campaign, MacLaren said he had cause for concern immediately following Brown’s tenure began. “This goes way back to October, 2011,” he said. “(Former Carleton Mississippi MPP) Norm Sterling became complacent, he wasn’t visiting his constituents’ office, wasn’t connecting with grass roots supporters. It was more of him losing than me winning.” MacLaren called the next five – and-a-half years a “bumpy road.” “Sterling supporters weren’t happy someone would challenge him,” MacLaren said. “They never accepted it. “ MacLaren says that acceptance reared its head on March 24, 2016. MacLaren was invited to speak at Carp Men’s Night – a fundraiser for cancer attended by about 350 people. MacLaren made a crude joke about MP Karen McCrimmon. MacLaren admits his joke was not that funny in
retrospect, but claims the issue was compounded by those in attendance. “Men’s Night invites politicians and expects some off colour jokes,” he continued. “The history is what happens at Men’s Night stays at Men’s Night. There were some Sterling supporters up front with their cell phones and released it to the media. It was kind of a trap.” MacLaren said Brown was not very supportive and sent him home for five weeks. While MacLaren, said he would have appreciated more support, his dissatisfaction with the party’s leader has more to do with party governance than any individual issues. “Under Brown, members are told what to do and how to vote,” MacLaren said. “We had no freedom of democratic right to vote for our constituents or support our constituents. It wasn’t democracy. Were supposed to be the voice of the common man. That dates back to the Magna Carta (a charter agreed to by King John of England in 1215). That charter gave
the power to the common man, that was the start of democracy.” MacLaren cites the caucus discussion on Bill 89, Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017. During the discussion, MacLaren said there was discussion over confusion over sexual identity and that a parent who provided guidance could have his or her guidance construed as abuse. “We found that particularly offensive,” he said. “The government is going to decide if you are good parents based on the guidance you give and
can take away your child.” The caucus decided to vote for the bill, afraid the Liberals would accuse the PCs of being against children, MacLaren said. “The majority Liberals were going to get it passed anyway,” MacLaren said. “Four of us were opposed and wanted to vote against the bill because our constituents were opposed and asked for an open vote.” MacLaren said himself and caucus members Michael Harris, Rick Nicholls and Sam Oosterhoff wanted to
vote against the bill. “This created a real problem in caucus he said. “This is not a matter of agreeing with the bill or not, but if it should be a whipped vote. A strong leader should have enough confidence to let people vote their own way and lead his party with their opinions. It didn’t matter to Brown what way we voted on that issue, as long as it was whipped. I didn’t agree with that – that’s not democracy.” See CORRUPT on Page 10
OPG IS CONDUCTING RESEARCH ON THE OTTAWA RIVER TO PROTECT ONTARIO’S BIODIVERSITY. Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is conducting research in the vicinity of its hydroelectric generating stations on the Ottawa River. This research, which is being carried out by Kleinschmidt Associates and Bowfin Environmental Consulting, is in support of OPG’s ongoing American eel and lake sturgeon mitigation studies for these species at risk.
Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren says the Trillium party is more in line with his views of democracy.

MacLaren says the recent Ottawa West Nepean nomination meeting was another issue that further disillusioned him. He says the party picked favourites, pushed out candidates they didn’t want and the election was marred by “corruption.” “When Brown ran for the leadership bid I asked him for two things,”MacLaren said. “Open nomination meetings and grass roots policy-making, and he agreed. That’s why I supported him. During the convention in March, 2016, Brown announced the party would support a carbon tax. That was crushing news for PC supporters. Caucus did not agree with that. It certainly didn’t come from grass roots policy making.” Meanwhile, former caucus-mate MPP Lisa McLeod sent a letter on July 5 to Chief Electoral Officer of Ontario Greg Essensa formally requesting his office investigate the fundraising practices of the Trillium Party related to a barn dance MacLaren hosted at his farm on June 24. MacLeod wrote ‘MPP’s (sic)…who are respecting the ban on attending fundraisers, are concerned with what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the law by MPP MacLaren.”
MacLaren says he and his team broke no Elections Financing Act laws. “If she had called the Chief Electoral Officer, she would have known no laws were broken,” he said. “Our chief financial officer called before the party to see if we could raffle off four prizes. The barn dance was free to attend. Essensa said ‘no problem, you aren’t breaking any rules. McLeod tried to discredit me in a very public fashion. She got a lot of negative feedback on that. Essensa never called me or our CFO. There is no issue. Why or who put her up to it, I don’t know. Surely, the PC party didn’t. Lisa will say and do what she’s told – she’s a trusted soldier.” But MacLaren is done with the PCs and focusing on the Trillium party. He thinks the three-year-old party will be attractive to his constituents and all residents of Ontario. “We respect democracy, we believe in grass roots policy making,” he said. MacLaren says the party opposes current hydro rates and the recent changes to the sex education act. The party wants to encourage more young people to enter the skilled trades and supports private daycare with regulation. The party supports private property rights. See WORK on Page 11

“We’ll take the common sense approach to governance and listen to the people,” Maclaren said. MacLaren says he’s on the same page as Trillium party leader Bob Yaciuk. “The policy ideas are his, as well as the other members, and I support them,” he said. “He founded this party three years ago for all the same reasons I joined the party on May 24.” Currently, MacLaren is the only sitting member of the Trillium party. “We will run candidates in as many ridings as we can,” he said. “We’re getting calls every day from people looking to run, because they agree with what the party stands for. It’s very exciting.” MacLaren says the time is right for the Trillium party. “Patrick (Brown) is losing supporters for his lack of leadership and ideas,” he said. “People are frustrated with Wynne and high expenses.” He said the much talked about barn dance is proof voters are looking for something different. “I’ve held barn dances for six years,” MacLaren said. “We had more than 250 people at the barn dance. That show people are excited about the party and the constituents support my move. We’re getting phone calls and emails from across the riding and Ontario in support. PC supporters are very disappointed in the way the PCs have moved so far to the middle. There’s no difference between Brown’s PCs and Wynne’s Liberals.” So it’s all systems go, leading up to the June 7, 2018 provincial election. “We’ve got 11 months time to campaign,” MacLaren said. “We know as a new, lesser known party we have our work cut out for us. We’re underdogs, but we’ve always been underdogs. “ MacLaren says there are a number of strong candidates including leader Yaciuk who runs in the NewmarketAurora riding and Elizabeth Marshall in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound riding. Yaciuk attended MacLaren’s barn dance and MacLaren attended Marshall’s kick-off party a couple of weeks ago. “There’s quite a few other ridings, that I am not at liberty to talk about, that we see great potential,” MacLaren said. “Our website is so busy with people wanting to know who the candidate is in their riding because they want to vote for us. I’m thoroughly enjoying myself with my new job. I feel happier and people say I look happier. Some see this as an uphill battle, but I’m looking forward to climbing that hill.”
Ward 5 West Carleton-July Kinburn Side Road reconstruction
Notice of Completion of Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) Baseline Road Bus Rapid Transit Corridor (Bayshore Station to Heron Station) Planning and Environmental Assessment Study
The Project The City of Ottawa has completed an Environmental Project Report for a Baseline Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) facility between Bayshore Station and Heron Station, in accordance with Ontario Regulation 231/08. The corridor follows an alignment which includes Holly Acres Road, Richmond Road, Baseline Road, and Heron Road (Figure 1). Near the Baseline Station area, it travels via Constellation Drive, Navaho Drive, College Avenue and Woodroffe Avenue to link the Centrepointe community and Algonquin College campus. The project proposes dedicated bus-only lanes (generally in the median), 25 new transit stations and new pedestrian and cycling facilities along the length of the 14-km corridor. The project will incorporate all elements of a complete street while also maintaining the function of the road as an Arterial Road. This project is part of the Rapid Transit and Transit Priority Network identified in the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) 2013 and connects to other existing and planned rapid transit corridors, including the West Transitway, the Confederation Line, the Southwest Transitway, the Trillium Line, and Southeast Transitway. The project will accommodate the anticipated growth in transit ridership as contemplated in the TMP and support the growth management policies identified in the City’s Official Plan (OP).
Beginning soon, the City of Ottawa will undertake construction work on Kinburn Side Road as follows: • The storm sewers on Kinburn Side Road from 200 m west of Donald B. Munro Drive to Maria Street, and on Loggers Way at Kinburn Side Road, have reached the end of their service life and are in need of replacement. • The renewal of existing sidewalks and construction of new sidewalks and/or paved shoulders on Kinburn Side Rd, from west of Mary Street to approximately 230 m east of Loggers Way (Kinburn Community Centre). Work will start soon and will stop late this fall and re-start again in spring 2018. Final completion including tree planting and sod reinstatement is expected to be completed in spring 2018. Know your dog ownership responsibilities I’ve recently heard some concerns from residents regarding dogs being off leash and owners not cleaning up after their pets. I would like to remind dog owners that they must comply with the City’s Animal Care & Control By-Law. A few main points to remember: • In the interest of public safety and animal welfare, dogs must be under the control of their owners at all times, and must not be permitted to roam. Leashing is required on public property and leashes should be no longer than three (3) metres. (Dogs may be off leash in some City parks. These areas are signed accordingly. Go to ottawa.ca to find dog park locations). • Dog owners must remove waste from public property. If you get caught “in the act” of not removing your animal’s waste you may be fined. The by-law also requires that dog waste be disposed of at the dog owner’s home – so don’t leave it in park or street waste receptacles. There’s a fine for that too. Ottawa named “Best Place to Live in Canada” Congratulations Ottawa! For the second year in a row Ottawa has been named the “best place to live in Canada” by MoneySense magazine in their annual rankings of 417 cities, towns and villages. MoneySense magazine’s rankings were based on the economy, wealth, affordability, safety and culture of each city, as well as access to health care, airports and schools. Go to www.moneysense.ca to review the rankings.

The youth faces charges of assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, possession of weapons dangerous and carrying a concealed weapon. The development in which the stabbing occurred is referred to as Falcon Brook and is located near Richardson Road and Highway 417.
Twenty-year Falcon Brook resident Chris Ladouceur told media the area is a quiet neighbourhood and could not recall an event like this happening before.

Karen McCrimmon Serving Constituents of Kanata-Carleton
Member of Parliament Kanata-Carleton Canada Day 2017 Every July 1st since 1867, Canadians from all walks of life have come together to celebrate the anniversary of the date the provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick chose to unite to form a country sworn to uphold the principles of cooperation and inclusivity. Whether you spent this year’s Canada Day at any of the various events that took place across the riding, or gathered with friends and family at one’s home, cottage, or backyard, I would like to again wish everybody a very happy Canada Day. As a child, I remember fondly the summer of 1967, celebrating Canada’s centennial with my family in Timmins, Ontario. We attended the many different events taking place throughout the region and these events instilled in me a civic pride that came from the recognition of Canada’s feats as a country. These events celebrated our diverse range of cultures and backgrounds, not to mention the life-changing advancements we contributed to society. Now fifty years later, we once again find ourselves at another great milestone. Our country has made great steps in those 50 years, and Canada is recognized the world over as a role model for prosperity, respect and ingenuity. I look forward to our bright future!
Canada Day Events Around the Community Canada Day is always one of the busiest days of the summer for me, and includes touring the many different events taking place across our riding. In the morning, I sat down with local seniors at the Huntley Community Association’s Canada Day Breakfast at the Huntley Mess Hall. After getting my fill of pancakes and bacon needed to keep me going for the day, my team and I went to the Carp Fair Canada Day Farmers Market, followed by the Diefenbunker Canada Day event. From there we went to Kanata’s Legion 638 Canada 150 President’s BBQ. After great conversations, we travelled to the Canada Day in Kanata event, where I was greeted by the rest of my team, who had set up a booth where the local residents could stop in and say hello. The United Postal Service (UPS) also stopped in to present me with a beautiful Canada 150 birthday card signed by their staff as the card travelled across the country. The last of the events for the day was the Canada Day celebrations back in Dunrobin. After a very busy day it was finally time for me to head back home, where I celebrated the rest of Canada Day with my husband and our friends. Thank you Kanata-Carleton for coming out to celebrate such a wonderful day!
Working for and Representing Kanata-Carleton It is such an honour and privilege to serve as your Member of Parliament and I look forward to meeting and working with you all.

Born in Arnprior, Nolan MacMillan was Redblacks’ first ever draft pick by jake davies
Spending his first five years of life in the Valley was all Nolan MacMillan needed to entrench the work ethic and community spirit needed to be the Redblacks' first ever draft pick, setting the foundation for a team that has won one Grey Cup, competed in two and brought football back to Ottawa. MacMillan, a six-foot-six, 294-pound offensive lineman who lines up at guard for the Redblacks, spent the first day of his life in the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital. “I was in Arnprior for about 24 hours and then moved to Renfrew until I was five,” the 26-year-old said.

just a great atmosphere and people love football there. It’s really important to everybody there and the program really prepared me for this opportunity here with coach (Kirk) Ferentz. He’s kind of an offensive line guru and the University of Iowa is kind of known for their offensive linemen and their strength and conditioning program with coach (Chris) Doyle so, it’s worked out well for me.” His academic record shone as bright as his football accolades. MacMillan was an Ontario Scholar upon graduation and an honour roll student. He also lettered in swimming and track while at St. Michael’s College School. While at Iowa, MacMillan was a philosophy and pre-law major. MacMillan was drafted ninth overall by the Redblacks in 2013, with the expectation he would play for Iowa in his last year. He signed his first contract with the Redblacks on May 28, 2014. Since that time, he has played in 45 regular season games for the Redblacks — every one in 2014 and 2015, and seven last year as he missed several due to injury. MacMillan has started both games this season but will miss the Toronto game on July 8 due to injury. Although he missed more than half of last season, MacMillan made the most of his time away from the field by working in the community. Last year, MacMillan was one of nine CFL nominees for the Jake Gaudaur Veterans’ Award. The award is presented to the Canadian CFL player who best demonstrates the attributes of Canada’s veterans: strength, perseverance, courage, comradeship and contribution to Canadian communities. As MacMillan rehabbed a wrist injury, he led all Redblacks players in hours spent working in the community. MacMillan served meals to the homeless, helped out as a minor football guest coach on several occasions and participated in various school assemblies to engage and mentor youth in the National Capital Region. General manager Marcel Desjardins says what’s important during the draft is if the player can play. “To have him play for us from the get-go and contribute right away was a big boost for us,” Desjardins told Metroland Media on July 5. “He came from a good pedigree, even before Iowa. He has athleticism, flexibility based on his sound football knowledge. He gives us some flexibility even within a game. If there’s an injury, we know we can move him to tackle, if necessary. It definitely helps our depth, (as) tackle is the harder position to play. The offensive line is the foundation of everything we do on offense. So, they might not get the glory in the papers, but we know they are important to us.” See WAS 2016 NOMINEE, page 15

John Henry and the Steel Driving Band kicked off the annual Music in the Park series held Thursday nights throughout July at Fitzroy Provincial Park.
Park music needs a sponsor by jake davies
The popular Concerts in the Park series kicked off on Thursday, July 6 with a huge crowd and a new sponsor. For 22 years, Waste Management has sponsored the free concert series in Fitzroy Provincial Park, but pulled out this year. For 2017, Coun. Eli El-Chantiry came to the rescue and is sponsoring the series this summer, which runs every Thursday evening in July. “I didn’t want it to end on Canada 150,” Coun. El-Chantiry said. “I hope next year someone will step up and sponsor the event.” Not only is the concert series an inexpensive
night out for West Carleton families, it provides an opportunity for youth groups to make money for their organizations. Youth groups are charged with running the barbecue and get to keep the proceeds for their organization. On July 6, Merge Robotics brought their competition robot for the public to see in action (see story on page 34). Donations to CHEO are also accepted. On July 13, The Heartbeats perform, on July 20, the Debenham Brothers, and on July 27, Ambush performs. Concerts run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and it is recommended you bring your own lawn chair. “You can bring your daughter or your dog and chill out,” El-Chantiry said. “It’s a great, free event everyone can enjoy.” FSA 45 | Battery Trimmer

Entertaining night of drama as Carp Agricultural Hall becomes site of ‘Cafe Noir’ by john curry
The Agricultural Hall at the Carp fairgrounds became Café Noir on the island of Mustique. Interesting. This Café Noir became the scene of two murders, right on the heels of an earlier murder of the café’s owner. Mysterious. And a Humphrey Bogart-type detective becomes a hero and gets the girl as the murders are eventually solved. Believable but most important of all, entertaining. This all happened in three presentations of the murder mystery theatre production of Murder at Café Noir last weekend (July 7, 8 and 9) which was presented by Rural Root Theatre Company in a joint production with Lakeside Players, all to raise funds for flood relief in West Carleton. Director Greg Geisler noted that this was the first murder mystery theatre presented by the Rural Root Theatre Company in a number of years, saying that this play Murder at Café Noir by David Landau, the acknowl-
edged inventor of interactive murder mystery theatre, is funny, corny and confusing. It is a play which pays homage to the Bogart movies like Casablanca, featuring a collection of shady characters, all with suspicious backgrounds, any one of which could be the murderer. And as the play progresses, two additional murders happen right there on stage. Director Geisler pointed out that this production was pulled together in just six weeks following the flooding crisis this spring, noting that the normal preparation time for such a play is about three months. And these are demanding roles in this play because the actors not only perform in the scenes that happen on stage and among the audience but also must remain in character and improvise actions and words as they mingled with the audience during the breaks when the three-course dinner meal was served to the audience members.

Cast members help serve dinners to audience members Continued from page 18
Indeed, cast members even helped serve some of the dinners to the audience members. The caterer, Scrumptious Creative Catering of Stittsville, got into the spirit of the event by giving its dinner offerings appropriate names. So there was ‘Café Noir’ Waldorf salad, chicken to ‘die for,’ and ‘Hotsy Totsy’ espresso mousse martini with doughnut side car. The scene was initially set as audience members arrived at their tables in the Carp Agricultural Hall where they found copies of the front page of the Grenadine Islets Inquirer which told of the body of the murdered Andre Gauvreau washing ashore on the beach. The owner of the Café Noir on the island of Mustique, who died of two gunshot wounds, was rumoured to be involved in smuggling, the black market and prostitution as well as being quite a womanizer. The story unfolded from there, with Richard Archer, a private investigator hired to find a runaway girl arriving at Café Noir in the course of his search, becoming not only the narrator but the one leading the search for the killer of the Café Noir owner. Two further murders happen as the play progresses. Two bit gun runner Thursby and a Dutch blackmailer VanGilder both have to be wheeled offstage as corpses, adding to the mystery of the proceedings. And there were moments of comedy in the play, such as when the dying Thursby staggers on stage following two gunshots and indicates he knows who the murdered is. He is urged by Det. Rick, seeking the information, to “cough it up” which he proceeds to do, literally coughing all over Rick, who then changes his question to “spit it out” and you can imagine what happens next. So Rick then urges him to “sing” about his information and the dying Thursby then launches into a song and dance routine with Rick before dying on stage. This whole scenario evoked laughter from the audience. Another humorous moment was when barrister Simone Gutterman, the Café Noir’s resident lawyer, was moving through the audience, telling the tale of how she came to be at Café Noir after being disgraced back in England by her affairs with wealthy clients. Expressing how she likes older, true gentlemen, she rejects one audience member beside her, lamenting not being able to find one at Café Noir that night, only to hear a voice ring out from an audience member across the table — “Over here.” Det. Rick asked the audience a couple of times for its advice about how he should proceed with his investigation. Should he give a mysterious envelope which he found in the Café Noir office to lawyer Gutterman or should he reject her request? The audience response was a loud urging to call her bluff, which he did by burning the envelope, leading to a standoff
between the detective and lawyer, both pointing guns at each other. And at the end, when Det. Rick praised an astounded and confounded Deputy Insp. Rigfield of the St. Vincent police for solving the murder mystery, everything on stage halted, not only because the time for everyone to get their “just desserts” was coming but also to give audience members an opportunity to fill out a sheet indicating which of five suspects was the murderer and telling why. And just who were the possible murderers? There was Madam Toreau, manager of Café Noir and wife and former lover of the deceased owner. There was Sheila Wonderly, the spoiled rich girl that Det. Rick had been hired to find who was working at Café Noir, and Anthony Cairo, a dealer in the black market whose identity change was known to the deceased café owner. And then there was Marie Larue, daughter of a voodoo priestess whose voodoo doll with pins stuck in it could have caused the death of the café owner, and, finally, Simone Gutterman, the sleazy British barrister. On stage, Det. Rick outlined the clues which led to the killer — one of the suspects earlier had exclaimed that the pins in the voodoo doll were in the exact places where the café owner had been shot, a fact never revealed in the initial newspaper article describing the death. In addition, the wedding ring of the café owner had been removed. Yes, these clues led to Madam Toreau as the murderer. She ended up pulling out her gun and then shooting herself. Of all those in the sold out audience, only nine people had identified the correct suspect on their sheets while also giving the proper explanation as to motive — a rejected lover who still loved her man even though he was loving other women. Two of these nine were chosen in a draw
and won play tickets. Some of the more creative explanations of motive were announced, including even one explanation that the murders at Café Noir were the result of a conspiracy related to, you guessed it, Donald Trump.
Actors in this play Murder at Café Noir were drawn from both Rural Root Theatre Company of Constance Bay and Lakeside Players of Britannia. Some of the actors are involved with both theatre groups. See PLAY PRESENTED, page 20

Mary completely enjoyed Orangeman’s parade wth King Billy
t didn’t matter a whit if you were an Irish Catholic, a German Lutheran, or someone from some other background, everyone for miles around went to the Orangeman’s parade on the 12th of July. Father and the brothers were up at the crack of dawn to do the chores early, and Mother and Audrey were making the lunch to take into Renfrew long before I was out of bed. It would be the most exciting event since the parade several years ago. Towns took turns in hosting the 12th of July, and that year it was Renfrew’s turn. If you didn’t get into town early to park on the main street, you had to go to wherever you could find a spot, and you then ended up standing in the blazing sun under one of the awnings a very few stores had over their doorways. And so that morning, we headed into Renfrew at a time when we would usually be just eating our breakfast. Every ounce of me tingled with excitement. There was nothing that thrilled me more than marching bands and crowds of people, and I could certainly be assured of both as we drove into town in the Model T, hoping we could make the 12.5 mile trip without a flat tire. “Couldn’t be better,” Father said as he wheeled the car next to the curb right in front of the Chinese restaurant. “When can we have the lunch?” Emerson wanted to know. Mother just rolled her eyes in answer.
He was treading on thin ice to begin with, as he fought Everett to sit next to the back window, which wasn’t a window at all, but rolled up curtains tied with narrow leather straps. It seemed like hours had passed before we heard the bands coming onto the main street from the fair grounds, and I knew from remembering the last Orangeman’s parade, that leading the bands and people walking down Raglan Street, would be King Billy on a white horse, dressed in white himself, with sashes and ribbons in bright orange. I was fair tingling by the time we saw the white horse three blocks away, and you could hear the people clapping and cheering, as the Orangemen marched behind bands. They too, were all dressed in white, with orange banners across their chests. I asked my sister Audrey why we couldn’t be in the parade too, and she said you had to be Irish, and preferably a Catholic. Well, there were the Briscoe’s and they certainly weren’t Catholic! Audrey told me to hush up and listen to the bands soon to be in front of us, as we leaned against the Model T. And then we heard the clomp-clomp of hooves, and knew King Billy would soon appear. And appear he did! Such splendour! Such vivid colours, and the plumed hat, which was obviously too big for him, covering his eyes, so that he had to toss his head back every few seconds to see where he was going and wave to
MARY COOK Memories
“And right then I made up my mind that as soon as I was old enough, I was going to become an Orangeman!” the throngs of people. And right behind King Billy was the Orangeman who was obviously just as important as King Billy himself. He had a small drum attached to his waist somehow, but he was also blowing into the tiniest horn I had ever seen. His white cap was rimmed with orange braid, and every so often he would take the horn and use it to push the cap back, and then he’d give the little drum a rap with the horn for good measure.
He didn’t look right to me, and it was Father’s comment, which told me why. “He’s as drunk as a hoot-owl,” he said. “I don’t think he’ll make it as far as the swinging bridge.” I lost count of the number of bands and the people walking behind, some children far younger than I was, dressed in full regalia for the day. And right then I made up my mind that as soon as I was old enough, I was going to become an Orangeman! I couldn’t think of anything more exciting than walking in a parade dressed in white with an orange sash, and band music filling the air. Even though my sister said you had to be Irish and preferably a Catholic, which I doubted, I decided if I had to give up the Lutheran Church, and my German heritage, so be it! At that young age, I decided if that was the price of becoming an Orangeman, it was a price I was willing to pay! Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

There will be 60 participants and 60 questions. Do you think there is a theme here? Well, it’s the ‘60s, which was the height of the Cold War and also the decade in which the Diefenbunker opened. The winning team at this trivia night will win a great team prize (hint: the machine room) as well as Diefenbunker bragging rights. There will be a cash bar, giant Jenga, a three headed Cerberus, a giant cipher wheel and interactive tables with ‘60s props all available for playing with. Tickets for this trivia night are $30 per person. Thursday, July 20 at the Diefenbunker in Carp will feature the première of a new short film by Pixie Cram, who is the artist-in-residence for 2017 at the Diefenbunker. Inspired by the objects, rooms and spaces in the Diefenbunker, Cram is creating a film that imagines a nuclear fallout scenario using stop-motion animation. There will also be optional guided tours of the Diefenbunker starting at 6 p.m., followed by with the artist’s
talk and the screening of the film at 7 p.m. However, space is limited and tickets must be reserved by July 16 at pixiecram@eventbrite. ca.

A murder mystery fundraiser is being held on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Diefenbunker. And the title? None other than Murder at the Diefenbunker.

Dragon Boat Festival Special to the Review
The third annual Constance Bay Dragon Boat Festival is coming up this Saturday, July 15, running from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Point Beach. This festival is presented by the Ottawa River Canoe Club (ORCC) in partnership with the Constance and Buckham’s Bay Community Association. Everyone is urged to plan to attend for a fun day at the beach while also experiencing the enjoyment of recreational dragon boat racing. In dragon boat racing, each team consists of one steersperson (provided by the ORCC), 20 paddlers and one drummer.

Practice runs will start at 9:30 a.m. with the event ending at 6 p.m. The dragon boat festival will have a supervised place for kids to play during the races.

Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour joins Project Arnprior Welcome by john curry firstname.lastname@example.org
The population of Arnprior is growing by two this week thanks to the refugee sponsorship efforts of Emmanuel Anglican Parish of Arnprior and the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour. These two Anglican parishes, working with the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, this week are welcoming two refugees, a mother and a daughter, who have been in a refugee camp in Turkey but who originally come from Iran. This is the second refugee sponsorship experience for Emmanuel Anglican Parish of Arnprior which welcomed a Syrian family in 2016. For the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour which comprises both St. George’s Anglican Church in Fitzroy Harbour and St. Thomas Anglican Church in Woodlawn, this is its initial refugee sponsorship initiative. Last year the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour decided to help sponsor a refugee family, setting a minimum fundraising goal of $5,000 which has been surpassed. Events such as a benefit concert and a “Taste of Syria” food experience were held to raise these funds. The “A Taste of Syria” fundraising and awareness event was hosted by the West Carleton Branch 616 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Constance Bay in July, 2016. When Emmanuel Anglican Parish of Arnprior decided to sponsor a second refugee family, the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour joined the initiative, becoming one of the partners in Project Arnprior Welcome (PAW), phase two. The two ministers, Rev. Cathy McCaig of
Emmanuel Anglican and Rev. Hilary Murray of the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour, knew each other from previous experiences, an added benefit for this refugee partnership. Rev. McCaig is familiar with West Carleton as she lives in Dunrobin. Both ministers will be among those on hand at the Ottawa Airport this week to welcome this new refugee family comprised of a 53 year old mother and her 18 year old daughter. Not much is known about them as their names were picked off a list of approved refugees provided by the Anglican Diocese. What is known is that they speak only Farsi, not Arabic, that their education levels are Grade 11 and Grade 8 and that the mother is a hairdresser who did own her own business. It is not known what happened to the husband and father but it is known that this mother and daughter were deemed to be “women at risk” and in need of a safe home as refugees. “Women at risk” is one of the categories of refugee as defined by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, covering any females who have a well founded risk of persecution in their homeland. It does not cover all women but could apply to such situations as single women, women with children, women with no male family members and women who have faced violence or torture. It is not known as well what religion the new refugee family practices. They could be Christian but this will not be known until they arrive. The Project Arnprior Welcome (PAW) has arranged for a two-bedroom apartment for this mother and daughter refugee family. There is still a need for some furniture but the group is
waiting until the two arrive before making de- help them get used to their new country before cisions about clothing and other matters. They moving into their apartment. will be staying with a PAW committee member for their initial few days or weeks in Canada to See REFUGEE FAMILY, page 29

Hilary Murray of the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour, committee member Katherine Miller-Gatenby and Rev. Cathy McCaig of Emmanual Anglican Church in Arnprior.

Refugee family of mother and daughter arriving in Canada Continued from page 28
The PAW group learned a lot from hosting its first family from Syria which is now well established in the Arnprior community, with the children in school and language training in place. This first refugee family has even had a new baby since arriving in Arnprior. The PAW group has learned from its first successful refugee experience and will use this experience going forward with this new refugee family of two. English as a second language classes have now been established in Arnprior, run by volunteers and serving the needs not only of refugees but also others living in Arnprior who need such language training and asked to join the class. It is amazing how isolating the language barrier can be, PAW committee member Katherine Miller-Gatenby told those at a PAW information session in Arnprior on July 5. That’s why one of the roles which volunteers with PAW can play is just spending time with the refugees, helping them practice speaking English. Going shopping with refugees to help them get familiar with stores in Canada is another way that volunteers with PAW can help refugees become socialized with Canadian society. The experience with the first family also showed the PAW group the important role that food and hospitality play in making refugees feel at home in their new surroundings. Just being welcoming and friendly is a key in helping refugees get settled. “A smile and ‘Welcome to Canada’ goes a very long way,” Miller-Gatenby said. But a major challenge for the PAW group centres on transportation and having enough volunteer drivers available to drive the refugees around, not only in the community but even to Ottawa on occasion. In the case of this newest refugee family, there will be a need for lots of women volunteers for this transportation role as the two female refugees, due to their cultural background, will not travel in a vehicle with just a male driver present. Hence the need for a woman to be present as well. Besides the need for volunteer drivers, the PAW group also requires volunteers to help in other ways such as looking after the dental needs of the refugees and helping the refugees become familiar with Canada’s banking and monetary systems. The PAW group was initially established in 2015 following publication of that graphic photograph of a youngster who washed up dead on a Mediterranean shoreline. This spurred the community to sponsor a refugee family and the community’s generosity in the ensuing fundraising was such that enough funds were raised to be able to sponsor two families. The first family arrived in February 2016 and now this second family is arriving with the PAW group now partnered with the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour. At the public information meeting on July 5, it was noted that in Iran, which is the home country of the refugee family that is now arriving in Arnprior, citizenship is determined through males i.e. the father must be a citizen of Iran for children to become citizens. That’s why a single woman with no male spouse has virtually no rights in Iran. The PAW group needs more volunteers to work with it, especially now with a second refugee family coming to the community. Police checks are needed by all volunteers involved with the PAW group.

group should check out the group’s website at www.projectarnpriorwelcome.ca or its Facebook page. PAW committee member Katherine Miller-Gatenby can be contacted at 613-622-0509 or Rev. Hilary Murray of the Anglican Parish of Fitzroy Harbour can be contacted at 613-623-3882.

Dr. Merrilee Fullerton chosen by PC’s by jessica cunha email@example.com
Jack MacLaren Member of Provincial Parliament Carleton-Mississippi Mills
Dr. Merrilee Fullerton is the new face of the provincial Progressive Conservative party in Kanata-Carleton. Fullerton won the nomination on June 28, beating out retired Ottawa police staff sergeant Rick Keindel. “This past year has been a tremendous experience speaking with so many residents about the issues concerning them most: health care, mismanagement of hydro, education and the government’s lack of integrity,” she said in a statement. “I appreciate all the encouragement and support that I have received.” She said Ontario can’t afford another four years of Liberal government and she intends to be part of the solution. “The election cannot come soon enough,” Fullerton said. “The PCs are determined to get Ontario back on track and that will begin with defeating (Premier Kathleen) Wynne’s Liberal government.”

There was a study commissioned by that the city of Seattle to look into the effects of their $15 minimum wage. That study said that jobs were lost, that people were working fewer hours and that overall, minimum wage earners in all sectors were earning less money after the increase. And where wages didn’t decrease prices increased.
Visit us at www.obrientheatre.com
I believe we can expect to see the same here in Ontario. That is why I am opposing this minimum wage increase. When employers are forced to pay so much for entry level jobs they are going to want to get the best they can for their money. So we can expect them to want more experienced workers that will require minimal training and work more efficiently than a student on their first job.

Medical advocate and retired family physician Merrilee Fullerton is the new provincial Progressive Conservative candidate for Kanata-Carleton after winning the nomination on June 28.
Ottawa Medical School, her background includes advisory roles with the Ontario and Canadian medical associations, and membership on the City of Ottawa board of health and local LHIN. “As a result, Merrilee knows firsthand the challenges the Liberal government’s reckless cuts to health care have had on patients,” said Brown. “Merrilee brings a unique perspective to our Ontario PC team.” Her priorities include improving health care, fixing “the energy mess,” supporting high tech, restoring responsible budgets and creating better quality of life. In an open letter to constituents posted on her website, Fullerton promised she would: • Campaign full-time until polls close election night “to make sure that we win this seat.” • Conduct herself with dignity and respect “and never make you embarrassed that I am your representative.” • Listen to constituents’ concerns and speak at Queen’s Park “with a positive voice for the issues and interests of our community.” • And work co-operatively with other politicians “in the best interests of Kanata-Carleton and the National Capital Region.” The riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills will be rejigged into KanataCarleton for the 2018 election. Riding incumbent Jack MacLaren was elected as a member of the Ontario PC party but left in May to sit as the first Trillium party member in Queen’s Park. He said he intends to run in the 2018 election. The new Kanata-Carleton riding will cover the former city of Kanata and the former West Carleton township. It was created with re-distribution out of the former Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding that covered not only Kanata and West Carleton but also Mississippi Mills and the Stittsville/Goulbourn area.

The Liberal government has introduced a bill, to much fanfare, that will increase the minimum wage for Ontario workers to $15/hour. But things may not be as rosy as the government would have you believe.
The entry level job for high school students is slowly going to vanish. Minimum wage is not supposed to be something that you live on permanently, it is supposed to be a starting point for building a career.
ARNPRIOR'S HISTORIC THEATRE
Killing off the Entry Level Job
I’ve been listening to the small and medium sized business owners in my riding and all around Ottawa, and they have told me that they simply cannot afford this increase.
Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown congratulated Fullerton on her nomination. “I know Merrilee will work tirelessly to ensure Ottawa families pay less and get ahead,” he said in a statement. “I look forward to working with Merrilee as part of our Ontario PC team as we share our positive message of change.”

Robotics team counts on support of community to compete by jake davies
It takes a team to build a robot to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition and it takes a community to support that team. Members of the Ottawa West Community Robotics Team, Merge Robotics, brought their robot to Fitzroy Provincial Park on Thursday, July 6 to share their story and show off their robot to the community gathered there for the kick-off to the Concerts in the Park series. The team, made up of 40 Grade 8 and high school students from West Carleton, Kanata, Barrhaven and Stittsville as well as other parts of Ottawa, showed off their hand-made robot’s amazing talents and shared stories of the design and competition. Recent Grade 8 graduate, Merge team member Erik Caldwell says he heard of the club from a friend at AUCTIONS
camp. “He saw I was wearing a Lego mechanical t-shirt and he thought I would be interested,” Caldwell said. Caldwell was interested and has been on the team for one year. “It’s fun,” he said. “It’s neat to be learning about software. I met an engineer who said he didn’t learn about Solidworks (a computer software used to help program competition robots) until university. It’s cool to be learning about software others may not be familiar with.” The competition involves FIRST Robotics Canada sending out a video explaining what tasks a team’s robot will have to be able to do at the official competition. Teams then have six weeks following the launch of the video to design, build and program their robot in time for competition. In last year’s event, Merge’s 120-pound robot had to be able to climb a rope and place gears on a AUCTIONS

Merge has to forge ahead on its own, with support from the community. The team members don’t have a school team they can join. It can create some challenges for the team. “One of the challenges is we don’t have build space,” said scientist Kendra Shaw who volunteers her time as the Merge business team mentor. Last year, the Kanata Research Park (KRP) and Enertron Electric stepped up and provided the team with space. The KRP was the team’s ‘clean build’ space while Enertron provided a ‘dirty build’ space. While thankful for the donated space, Shaw said it did create unique challenges. “It definitely created some comAUCTIONS

The Merge Robotics team poses behind their competition robot during the first of the Music in the Park series held in Fitzroy Harbour on Thursday, July 6. munication problems working at two different spaces on the same project at the same time.” The actual robot was built at the ‘dirty build’ space while the programming was done at the ‘clean build’ space. While the team calls west Ottawa its region, Merge has been known to be pretty inclusive. “We have yet to turn a kid away,” Shaw said. “We literally have kids from all over the city. Let’s call it Ottawa west-ish.” The leaders of the team, unlike
school teams, are also volunteers. “We have no teachers we have scientists, engineers and programmers who give their time to teach these kids,” Shaw said. “We are so proud of them.” The 2017 Merge team qualified for the provincial competition but did not move on to the national competition. Merge Robotics is looking for support for the upcoming 2018 competition. Then need build space, volunteers and helping hands. Visit their website at www.team2706.ca.

donation to Torbolton Cemetery to help with the cost of upkeep of the cemetery should contact Fern on 613253-0544. Torbolton Cemetery, also known as MacLaren Cemetery, is located just east of Dunrobin Road on Baird Grant Lane in West Carleton (former Torbolton township, Concession 4, Lot 19). It is believed to have begun as a private burying ground for the Baird family. The earliest recorded death on March 20, 1852 is that of Janet Baird, sister of Lieutenant Daniel Baird. The second earliest recorded death is that of Lieut. Daniel Baird himself. The Baird family deeded the cemetery to the trustees of The Torbolton Cemetery Company in 1869 as a community burial ground. It was to be a burial ground belonging to no particular church or denomination. Those buried at the cemetery, though, tend to reflect the Scottish and Presbyterian origins of the early settlers of Torbolton. The Torbolton Cemetery Company’s first trustees were John Smith, James Ferguson Grierson and Robert

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you may need to make some modifications to your strategy as a situation continues to evolve. Don’t be afraid of change, as it is necessary to get the job done.
LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, allow your plans for selfimprovement to take center stage, especially true if you have put them on the shelf for some time. Make yourself a priority.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, a possible breakthrough in your communication levels may open up a whole new world. This can only improve your relationships and help your career.
TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 It can be difficult to separate facts from the fiction, Taurus. However, you generally are a good lie detector. Put your skills to use to determine if someone is stringing you along.
VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you don’t tend to be reckless, but even you can surprise others sometimes with your behavior. Let the tongues wag if it means stepping out of your comfort zone.
CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you’re very good at balancing the elements of your life. This week may be especially challenging as many things come your way in rapid succession.
GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, some shocking information may find you reeling if you do not stay grounded. Although it comes as a surprise, with some processing you will be able to handle it.
LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, take others’ candor with a grain of salt. They might just be blowing off steam and they will appreciate having someone there who listens.
AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, others may seem sure about their actions even if you feel lost. Don’t put too much stock in it, as everyone copes with self-doubt from time to time.
CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, address a potentially mess situation before it gathers too much steam. Communication is all that’s needed to ensure cooler heads ultimately prevail.
SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you sometimes have a sarcastic sense of humor that makes you loved by some and disliked by others. Explain to the latter group that you mean no harm.
PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Some of your beliefs are nonnegotiable, Pisces. This can make for some rather heated conversations. But you’re up to the challenge.

KIN Vineyards grand opening 6 years in the making Vineyard has been making its mark on city’s culinary scene in recent years BY BRIAN DRYDEN email@example.com
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson praised the owners of Carp’s KIN Vineyards for taking a chance that high-quality wine can be produced in the City of Ottawa’s climate, adding that he’s seen the vineyards’ wines become a regular attraction on wine menus in some of Ottawa’s best known eateries recently. “This is a fine addition to the culinary scene here in Ottawa and is one of the operations that is giving Ottawa a growing reputation as a foodie destination,” Watson said during the official grand opening to the public of the vineyard’s site on Craig Side Road off Carp Rd. in Carp. Although the official grand opening was held on July 8, in reality the vineyard has been operating for some time. VIN owner Chris Van Barr joked at the opening that it isn’t often that a business has a grand opening six years after the idea for a vineyard in West Carleton was first put forth in 2011. He said the vineyard has evolved from selling wine at the Carp Fair, to getting its foot in the door at many Ottawa eateries to now having

Cormorants will assault you with a barrage of excrement by michael runtz
Over my many years I’ve conducted bird surveys in nearly every corner of this province. In 1985 a peregrine falcon survey done for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources took me from Niagara Falls to Lake Superior and Hudson Bay. I was looking to see if any former nesting sites had been recolonized. I’ve done helicopter surveys of waterfowl in northern Ontario for the Canadian Wildlife Service, and canoed for weeks on end while conducting breeding bird surveys in wilderness parks in northwestern Ontario. Nesting bird surveys for the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas took me 100 kilometres by canoe down the Muketei River to the Attawapiskat River, and had me trek through treeless tundra along the Hudson Bay coast. In recent years I have walked the coast of James Bay counting migrating shorebirds. Some surveys involved real risk. During the peregrine survey, our tugboat died during a ferocious Lake Superior storm and we were almost swept out into the depths of that lake; our SOS call was responded to the next day. In 2005, along the coast of Hudson Bay, a three-day, galeforce storm replete with torrential rain destroyed half of our tents and resulted in our crew being evacuated by helicopter. Recently I took part in a bird survey that offered a very different type of risk. The hazards, however, were not related to boating on a large body of water or to bad weather. The danger came from the birds themselves.
I took part in a Canadian Wildlife Service survey of nesting double-crested cormorants on Middle Brother Island in Lake Ontario. Renowned biologist Chip Weseloh has been working with gulls and other colonial nesting birds on the Great Lakes for many decades and I was honoured to spend some time with him. Four other volunteers came along for this survey, which involved counting cormorant nests on the island. The lake was dead calm and the sky blue when we left the Kingston dock, two features noticeably absent thus far this summer. Less
than half an hour later we were in sight of Middle Brother Island and as we approached we were greeted by waves of cormorants heading out to catch fish for their babies. Even from a distance we could see cormorant nests for they decorated the island trees like bulbs on Christmas trees. Once on the island our instructions were simple: pick a tree, put flagging tape around it, and count its nests. Sounded simple and it was, except for one thing. When you approach a cormorant tree the birds take defensive action. They assault you with a barrage of excrement and regurgitat-
ed fish. I will not soon forget the sound of dead fish smacking the ground around me, or dodging endless squirts of white liquid that fell like heavy rain, sometimes missing me, other times making a direct hit. Fortunately for the surveyors the resulting stains were water-soluble! By the end of the survey more than 2,000 cormorant nests were tallied, many of which resided on the ground as well as in the trees. It was a remarkable experience even if the conditions were somewhat “crappy” at times! The Nature email is firstname.lastname@example.org

If you have a general legal question that you would like to have addressed send it via email to Legalmatters@compellingcounsel.com
I am in a serious, committed relationship and have been living with my partner for 5 years now. I am uncertain if we will ever marry because neither one of us really believe it is something that we want. Friends of ours were asking us if we had ever thought about a cohabitation agreement given our living situation. We had never heard of such an agreement, what is it all about? Many couples today choose to live together in long-term and committed relationships without marrying. What some couples do not understand is that the law treats married and unmarried, or common-law, spouses very differently. It is important to understand these differences and how they will affect a person’s rights to property, support payments or a partner’s estate. Some key things to remember: in Ontario, property is not automatically divided between unmarried couples if a relationship ends; unmarried spouses may have a spousal support obligation, but only if they have a child together or if they have been living together for at least three years; and only married spouses automatically have a right to share in a spouse’s estate if that spouse dies without a will, no matter how long a couple has been in a relationship or whether they have children together.
A cohabitation agreement gives couples a great opportunity to carefully consider each other’s financial situation now and in the future, and decide together how they wish to share property, pay (or not pay) support to a partner in the event of a break-up, and what happens to the estate upon the death of a partner. It is important to plan ahead, be aware of your rights, and know what will happen if a relationship ends by choice or in the event of a death. The good news is that it’s never too late to draft a cohabitation agreement, whether you are considering moving in together, or whether you have been living together for a short or long period already. Many couples worry that having a conversation about a cohabitation agreement will be difficult and distasteful, but having these discussions now can lead to thoughtful and caring discussions about the future.
In order to protect yourself and your partner, unmarried couples are It is also important to remember that in order to have legal effect, these permitted to negotiate a contract–a cohabitation agreement–that lets agreements need to have clear terms that are understood by, and achieve them agree on certain rights and obligations in the relationship. the intentions of, each person. This is why it is critical to have a qualified family lawyer assist in the preparation of a cohabitation agreement.
