Jack MacLaren urges residents to speak up against rising hydro costs BY KELLY MCCARTHY kmccarthy@metroland.com

Carleton-Mississippi Mills Conservative MPP Jack MacLaren is urging residents who are unhappy with their Hydro One bills to make their voices heard. MacLaren held the first of four town hall meetings on Nov. 26 at the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham to rally his constituents to stand up against the current hydro structure and to shed light on exactly what ratepayers are funding with each month’s bill. “The Ontario energy crisis seems to defy logical explanation,” MacLaren said during the meeting. “I think you’ll all be surprised to learn what you’ve been charged for.” Attendees of the meeting had the opportunity to hear a presentation from Parker Gallant, a retired banker, journalist and former chairman of the Canadian Bankers Association’s trade finance committee, who went over some of the “hidden fees” included in the average hydro bill from

Hydro One. His presentation, arranged by Conservative MacLaren, was critical of the Liberal government. For example, Gallant told the crowd that off-peak hydro rates have increased 222 per cent in the last six years, since May 1, 2008. While there was no rate increase on Nov. 1 of this year, Gallant said he suspects Hydro One is “just delaying the inevitable” increase to another time. On Jan. 1 of this year, Hydro One ratepayers also adopted the Ontario Electricity Support Program, which offers support for low-income families to receive a small break on their hydro bill. Everyone else, Gallant said, picks up the fall from those discounts. “Why burden the rest of the ratepayers in the province?” Gallant asked. The Liberal government has also introduced a Rural and Remote Rate Protection program, effective Jan. 1, 2017, which aims to reduce the costs to provide electricity to communities not hooked into the conventional grid, such as First

Nations communities. Gallant said he doesn’t think ratepayers should have to pay for that, either. All in all, Gallant said that the average Hydro One bill has increased 33 per cent over the last 24 months. He ended his presentation with a slide that read, “When I was young I was scared of the dark. Now when I see my electricity bill I am scared of the lights.” Several of the meetings attendees were curious to know what a Conservative government would do in the Liberal’s place. “What would you advise a future, Conservative government do?” Richard Bonato, a Carp resident, asked. Ross Valliant, another Carp resident, directed the same question at MacLaren. “We’d call Parker,” MacLaren said in answer, referring to Gallant. MacLaren went on to say that a decade ago, Ontarians had average incomes that were 10 per cent higher than the rest of the country. See TOWN HALLS, page 26

Residents near Constance Creek safe from flooding: MVCA Floodplain mapping completed for area BY KELLY MCCARTHY kmccarthy@metroland.com

Residents near Constance Creek don’t have to worry about flooding anytime soon. The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority recently completed mapping the 1:100 year flood line for the area around Constance Creek, unveiling their findings at an open house on Nov. 23. The mapping shows the conservation authority which areas are prone to flooding from the creek and helps to determine areas where new development should be discouraged. The 1:100 designation means that there is a one per cent chance of a flood anytime over the next 100 years. It is possible but unlikely to have several one per cent floods within that same 100 year period. A portion of the floodplain, from the Ottawa River to Thomas A Dolan Parkway,

SUBMITTED

The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority has completed its mapping of the floodplain around Constance Lake and Constance Creek. Only one building throughout the entire area falls within the flood zone. had previously been mapped by the MVCA in 1994 and simply needed to be updated. However, the rest of the Constance Creek valley was an entirely new undertaking. “There are a number of variables that go in to creating a

floodplain map,” said John Price, director of water resources engineering with the MVCA, who attended the open house. The MVCA completed the floodplain map of Constance Creek in accordance with a mandate from the City of Ottawa,

which states that all conservation authorities must create floodplain maps of waterways within the next five years. The MVCA mapped Constance Creek to include the 1:100 year flood line, which outlines the area that has a one per cent chance of seeing a major flood in any given year. The resulting maps establish protection areas that can guide safe development projects through special building permits or mandate upgrades to existing dwellings that might need more flood protection. Luckily for residents in and around the Constance Creek and Constance Lake area, only one building currently falls within the 1:100 year flood danger area. All other residences are well within the safe zone, Price said. There are 18 dwellings that could potentially be affected by a major flood, Price said, but only because a portion of their access on Berry Side Road could be washed out with high water levels. However, it is likely that the road would only ever be under 10 centimetres of water and resident’s houses would remain

Price said that the MVCA would never support new development within the floodplain but that ultimately it is up to the municipality to either approve or deny an application. If a development was given the go-ahead within the floodplain, it would be subject to certain permits that would ensure it would be safe from high water levels. The MVCA’s floodplain maps for Constance Creek can be viewed on their website at www. mvc.on.ca.

completely dry. For all residents, implications from the floodplain mapping are minimal. Existing residents will not be affected at all, Price said, and only new developments within the floodplain will be subject to closer scrutiny. The MVCA, in fact, won’t support any new developments within the floodplain, Price said. The conservation authority is a commenting agency on new developments under the Planning Act, and had the right to give input on proposed developments.

Students at West Carleton Secondary School celebrate diversity Cultural Showcase event raises money for Spread the Net BY KELLY MCCARTHY kmccarthy@metroland.com

Celebrating diversity is what West Carleton Secondary School is all about. On Thursday, Nov. 24, students at WCSS hosted their first Cultural Showcase event to highlight the many cultures represented by their school. The event shared multicultural food and performances with students, staff and family. “In the last decade or so, the landscape of our school has changed so much,” said Sarah Heagle, the international certificate program instructor at WCSS, who helped organize the event. “We wanted to celebrate the changing demographics of our student body with a unique and fun event.” Student volunteers were encouraged to bring a food from their culture, which guests could sample by purchasing and exchanging tickets. The event was a fundraiser for the school’s Spread the Net effort to help curb malaria in developing countries. The school is hoping to raise enough to catch the attention of Spread the

Net spokesperson Rick Mercer, who visits schools who do their part to help the effort. The coffee-house style event featured over a dozen cultural foods such as jerk chicken from Jamaica, tourtiere from French Canada, pastille from Spain and baklava from the Middle East, while students dressed in traditional clothing in bright colours. Cultural performances by students included African-American spiritual singing, Arabic dancing, Latin dancing and a bagpipe display. Authentic henna was also available by donation. “It’s all about sharing culture and learning more about cultures you might not know anything about,” said Addy Strickland, a student volunteer who helped to organize the event. Over the course of their Spread the Net effort that ends on Feb. 20 next year, Heagle said that WCSS hopes to raise $1,500 for the cause. “It’s a great cause that we’re happy to support,” she said, “and of course, we’d love to have Rick Mercer visit the school as well.”

Legion’s community outreach program a success Last Friday’s TGIF Dinner at the Royal Canadian Legion in Constance Bay (377 Allbirch Rd) had a special theme: It was a Turkey Dinner in celebration of the successful completion of Phases 1 and 2 of the Legion’s Community Outreach program. These first two phases include both the TGIF dinners and also the Legion’s Community Garden, replete with 36 plots, deer fencing, two storage sheds and landscaping. The dinner was also an opportunity for the Legion and its main partner in this endeavour, the Carp Ridge Learning Centre (CRLC), to thank all the sponsors and volunteers, who

helped make it all happen. Talk about a sold-out event! The parking lot was pretty much full by 5:15 p.m. already and people were still flocking to join the party. West Carleton city councillor Eli El-Chantiry was on hand to help fill people’s plates and Karen McCrimmon was circulating amongst the crowd to greet people. Somewhere between dinner and dessert the organizers managed to fit in a few speeches. Both Eli and Karen spoke about the tremendous sense of community we were witnessing, the importance of having strong communities and how proud they were to be a part of it all. They also

Friday night at the weekly community supper, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 616, thanks the Carp Ridge Learning Centre, Deep Roots Food Hub, and the Ottawa Good Food Box which serves the communities of West Carleton. The community gardens at the Branch will be expanding its services in 2017. The response has been amazing.

Jacqui Ehninger-Cuervo, president of the Carp Ridge Learning Centre, gave a speech to recognize all the sponsors and volunteers, who had made it all possible. Special thanks went to Dr. Katherine Willow, Founder of the

CRLC and Doug McKinlay, who is the liaison between CRLC and the Legion. Doug was the person who envisioned the Outreach program and has personally spent countless hours to help build the Community garden, put up the storage sheds and work on the landscaping. Obviously the plan could not have been realized without the full backing and support from the Legion

ENERGY $AVING$! Before buying an air conditioning unit or system, find out its energyefficiency ratio (EER). Calculate the EER by dividing the unit’s cooling capacity (BTUs/hour) by its energy requirement (watts). An EER of 10 or more is very good, and 6 or 7 is fair. Remember to buy the smallest capacity unit or system that will meet your needs.

executive and its members, with John Woodbeck as the Project Lead. Finally the garden coordinator, Holly Myers, who Jacqui called “Holly of the two green thumbs”, also received honourable mention for her fabulous work of turning bare patches of earth into a thriving jungle full of edibles and blooms. To see pictures, you can visit the Community Garden FaceBook page: https://www.facebook.com/ pg/Constance-Bay-CommunityGarden-170279826741685/ photos/?ref=page_internal) Both the garden and the dinners have been a tremendous success - the 36 available plots, including some with handicap access, were all claimed within a few short few weeks. A couple were reserved by the Legion itself and produced some of the herbs and fresh produce that went into the dinners. Now – how did all of this materialize? While you definitely need the volunteers, you also need some cold, hard cash. As the Review found out, the web of organizations involved is bigger than most people realize. Although the Community Outreach program and garden is mainly a partnership between Carp Ridge Learning Centre and Legion Branch 616, with CRLC providing roughly 65 per cent of the funding for Phases 1 and 2, the program definitely got a helping hand along the way from both the Community Foundation of Ottawa (http://www.cfo-fco.ca/) as well as a group called EnviroCentre through their Sustain West Carleton initiative (http://www.envirocentre.ca/ initiatives/sustain-your-community/ sustain-west-carleton/), who together covered the remainder of the Phase 1 and 2 expenses. As it turns out, the Outreach program and Garden at the Legion is part of a much bigger initiative. Jacqui explained that the money from the Community Foundation of Ottawa came through their “New Leaf Community Challenge” grant. This is an annual grant and this year it was awarded to a number of partner organizations to address Food Security in West Carleton. The biggest part is actually still to come and that is to construct a large root cellar in the area that will allow local market garden farmers to store produce and make West Carleton grown food available year-round. This root cellar project is run by the Deep Roots Food Hub (another not-for-profit partner in the New Leaf grant), whose main challenge currently is to finalize the best site for the root cellar construction with the city.

Huntley Community Association hopes for biggest Christmas parade yet BY KELLY MCCARTHY kmccarthy@metroland.com

Santa Claus is coming to town. Santa will be visiting Carp on Saturday, Dec. 10 for the eighth annual Huntley Christmas Parade, where he’ll take up the rear as the big finale. “We’re hoping that this parade is going to be the biggest and best yet,” said Vicki Price of the Huntley Community Association, which organizes the parade. “We have lots of people signed up already.” Owing to the success of last year’s parade, Price said they have already matched the number of floats for this year. So far, there are more than 385 people signed up. The Carp parade is a simple event with a focus on celebrating the holiday spirit. There’s no theme and floats aren’t judged for prizes. Instead, Price said the Huntley Community Association encourages anyone with a passion for the holidays to do whatever their hearts please and march in the festive parade. “We want the parade to be as inclusive as we possibly can,” she said. “It’s a good old fashioned Christmas parade and anyone who wants to can participate.” The Carp parade starts noon at the Diefenbunker, heads up Carp Road to Juanita Avenue, down Langstaff Drive to Donald B Munro Drive and then back up Carp Road to finish the loop at the Diefenbunker. “There’s a ton of spots for people to come out and watch the parade,” Price said, “but we

Interested volunteers can contact Price at events@hcacarp.ca. The parade usually has between 25 and 30 floats, not including the numerous firetrucks and walking entries included in the lineup. All in all, the parade takes between 1.5 and 2 hours to watch in its entirety, Price said. There’s music and entertainment throughout and everyone does their best to kick off the holiday

season. For warmth during, visitors can purchase hot chocolate from a Tim Hortons truck at the Carp Fairgrounds. During the parade, volunteers will be collecting canned goods and donations for the West Carleton Food Access Centre, so Price said she encourages watchers to bring items along.

Why is the cost of hydro so high? How is it possible to use little or no electricity and yet have to pay through the nose for “delivery fees”? Is this all a government shell game or is there some rationale to it? I’ll be holding two town-hall meetings on the exorbitant hydro rates facing Ottawa residents. Renowned journalist and Ontario Hydro expert Parker Gallant has agreed to join these Town Halls to brief residents on why Ontario Hydro Rates are some of the highest in the developed world. Parker has written extensively in the Financial Post about the impact of Ontario Hydro rates on communities throughout Ontario. Parker’s talk is called “Watts in your hydro bill?’ Parker will take you through every line-item on your bill, and he’ll explain what each one covers. If you think the electricity line covers only the cost of generating electricity, you may be shocked at what else it contains. Here are the dates, times, and locations for both town-hall meetings:

Never beyond hope in Haiti

H

aiti is a long way from Ottawa. For a community newspaper, an invitation to the small Caribbean nation at first seemed like it would not fit with our hyper-local focus. But then again, we are all people, and people from right here in Ottawa are trying to make a difference in Haiti. Metroland reporter-photographer Erin McCracken visited Haiti to see first-hand what challenges the people there face. It’s not a pretty picture, but it’s not beyond hope. You can find her reporting and photographs in our Ottawa papers and her video coverage at ottawacommunitynews.com. The small country was poor before dealing with a major earthquake, and more recently, a hurricane. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere by almost any measure, it’s 11 million citizens include 10 million who need daily food assistance. Even if we are thousands of kilometres away, we can make a difference. We can donate funds to help rebuild, and we can ask our

elected representatives to make Haiti’s future a priority. The linguistic connection between our nations – French is the main language in Haiti – should make financial and infrastructure connections easier to build between us. Haiti can be reached in little more than five hours by jet. We can help our fellow man, woman and child, all of whom live no further away than the sunny beaches many of us travel to each winter. What we learned through our coverage is that there are newly linked Canadian partners working on rebuilding efforts. It may never be a wealthy nation or home to secret offshore bank accounts of the rich and famous (as some Caribbean islands are). But Haiti does not deserve to be written off. And in fact, we have learned there is an NGO – one with growing ties to Canada and Ottawa – with an operations network that is getting much-needed supplies directly to those in need. If you can help, www.foodforthepoor.ca will put donations to good use.

Parking regulations make little sense

W

arning: This column is definitely about First World problems. If you need to read about the troubles of people who are genuinely miserable, you should turn somewhere else. OK. Thanks to those of you who stayed and will now be treated to a rant about parking regulations in Ottawa. To begin with, what are they? The question arises, it goes without saying, from getting a parking ticket. It should not have been unexpected. The sign clearly said “one-hour parking” and the car was clearly there for longer than that. Other people at the same gathering got tickets too. They were equally surprised. We always parked there and never got a ticket. We figured we never got a ticket

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town because one-hour parking didn’t make much sense. It wasn’t a high-traffic street, it wasn’t near a hospital, it wasn’t a school zone. So we just assumed they weren’t really serious about it and enforcement wasn’t going to happen. Well, that was wrong. And you can say we got what we deserved, and we did. But we wouldn’t have if we’d parked on the same side street but on the other side of Wellington Street. There the signs said “twohour parking.” And why?

the same. A little further south or a little further west and the streets would have had no signs on them at all. We could park there for days. On the other hand, a little further east and we would have seen signs saying, and I paraphrase loosely, “no parking Monday to Thursday between 2 and 4 p.m., but otherwise it’s one-hour parking except between Dec. 1 and April 15.” Now, it would have taken the reading of about three signs to get that information, all of which appeared to be No Parking signs but weren’t, exactly, when you read the fine print, which hardly anybody does. You could drive a bit further east and find parking machines. Those you can understand — assuming you can understand machines. What you can’t understand is why they are there and not here.

You could travel a few blocks south and find no parking allowed anywhere at any time, because a hospital was somewhere in the near distance. Is there fairness in this? Perhaps. Somebody must have thought so at some point. And maybe we could bring ourselves to agree if somebody could explain the logic behind any of it. Is there logic? Or is it just a case of some influential people howling about parking in front of their houses. You could forgive the public for thinking that. Maybe, as a first step, somebody who understands the logic, probably somebody at city hall, could explain it to the rest of us. Why is it one hour here but two hours there and no hours somewhere else? Why are some places unlimited and some places off limits. Why are there meters here but not there? Yes, yes, we shouldn’t be having these problems. We should be walk-

ing or taking the bus and not clogging the streets with our polluting vehicles. However, it’s going to take a few years (and a lot of construction) before we reach the stage where parking becomes irrelevant to us. In the meantime, maybe somebody could help make the parking rules make sense.

Christmas events happening at Canadian Legion Branch 616 Christmas has come to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 616 in Constance Bay. We kicked off the first event of the festive season with the annual All-Veterans Christmas Party on Sunday, November 27. The bus bringing the vets from the Perley/ Rideau Health Centre arrived at 11:30 a.m., touching off the celebrations. Branch members and volunteers welcomed them along with veterans of all conflicts who served and are still serving. ‘Forever Friends” kept the tunes coming and the ‘616 Entertainers’ presented some comedic relief after the delicious turkey dinner/lunch. All the vets were happy to receive a gift bag which included a comfy cushion and a back scratcher! Thank you to everyone who turned out to meet our veterans, and to all those who helped to make this another enjoyable event for them. Our next Celebration will be the ‘Holiday Bash coming up on Friday, December 2. We have a great band lined up for this annual Branch Christmas Party with Karaoke mixed in.

Generous ‘aunt’ left Mary and family all warm and fuzzy

M

other and Aunt Bertha were sitting at the kitchen table over a pot of green tea and oatmeal cookies. Being a Saturday, I was home from school, and as always was delighted when someone came to pay a visit. Although she wasn’t an aunt, we called her aunt, because it was considered very bad manners for any child to call an adult by her first name. She came across the 20-acre field in the horse and cutter and had a bag with her that looked to be crammed full with material in a very dark green colour. Mother seemed to be as curious as I was, but then Aunt Bertha was always trying to help her become a good farm wife, and she no doubt had another idea to help Mother along. She took the big wad of green out of the bag, and spread it out on the kitchen

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories table. She was telling Mother about keeping our feet warm. This sounded great to me, because our old log house had no foundation, and our feet froze on the cold floors. Aunt Bertha ordered me to stand up on top of the table, right at the edge where the green material was placed, and I was in my stockings, with a pair of my father’s wool socks over them. Aunt Bertha ripped the wool sock off, and without further ado, took a pair of scissors out of her pocket and began cutting the material, which she called felt, just slightly larger than the shape of my feet.

She helped me off the table, and cut two longer pieces and set them aside. She sent Mother for shoes belonging to everyone in the house, and did the same thing with them: cutting their shapes out of the felt, and matching them with the strips. I had no idea what she was doing, but anything that added a bit of excitement on a Saturday morning was fine with me. Setting aside the piles of cut felt, she took a ball of red wool and a big darning needle out of another pocket, laid one of the flat pieces on top of one of the shapes of my feet, and began to blanket-stitch the

two pieces together. And right before my very eyes, and before could say “Jack Robinson” Aunt Bertha had created what I knew was going to be a pair of slippers to wear over our stocking feet to help ward off the drafts of the cold floors. “Now, Mabel, Audrey can do the rest. All she has to do is blanket-stitch those matching pieces together, and everyone will have a pair to wear when they take their gum rubbers and boots off at night.” And she was gone. Out the door, into the cutter, and across the 20-acre field and home. Well, Audrey was as excited as I was, and she spent the entire afternoon, sewing the felt pieces together so that by the time supper was over, and we were into the evening, everyone had a pair of blanketstitched felt slippers to put on over their wool socks. Everyone, that is, except Father, who went into his usual ranting about “living on this here farm for my entire life...a farm that has been in our name for more than 100 years, and we never

had to put any danged pieces of felt sewn together to keep our feet warm before. So don’t expect me to start now.” Well, the rest of the family put the felt slippers on, praising Aunt Bertha for her brilliant idea, and giving Mother the felt, and not asking for any money either. “Wonderful neighbour...just wonderful,” Mother kept saying. I couldn’t ever remember of having such warm feet on a cold winter’s night. And wearing our wool socks inside, kept the slippers from sliding off too. As usual, Father was in his rocking chair beside the Findlay Oval, with his stockinged feet on a cushion on the opened oven door, and it wasn’t long until we could hear the soft snores, see his pipe come to rest on his chest, and the Ottawa Farm Journal slip to the floor. When Father fell asleep, Mother said only an explosion would waken him up. We were all deadly silent, as we saw Emerson take the slippers made for Father and quietly tiptoe over to

the stove, and as gentle as a lamb, ease one foot and then the other, into the felt slippers. When Father finally wakened, he looked down at his feet, wiggled them around a bit, saw the felt slippers and slowly got out of the rocker. He went to stoke the Findlay Oval, poured himself a cup of green tea from the pot that sat continuously on the back of stove and was still wearing them when he headed into the bedroom. He would never admit the slippers were a good idea, but every night, like the rest of us, they went on over his work socks when his boots came off. Like she did many times over, Aunt Bertha was there to help ease Mother into life on a farm, and to give a lending hand whenever it was needed. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

The cats think they won

B

efore I tell you this week’s story, allow me to right a wrong. Sometimes when you have to edit for length, you leave out crucial parts. You don’t always realize they are integral to the story until later. Like when three people tell you they are upset that you weren’t more sympathetic towards the cows when their babies were taken to market. Oops. Here’s the thing. Most people who have been reading this column for years know that I have a deep concern and affection for all the animals on the farm. I like to be there when big things are happening like their babies are being taken away – because I can calm them. And feed them apples afterwards, like I did that day. But cows bawling for a time after separation from their young is just part of life on the farm. It also happens when one loses a calf. I talk to them, give them a rub if they will let me, and

DIANA FISHER The Accidental Farmwife let them know I understand. I have been faulted for caring too deeply for the animals, giving them names and writing stories about them. I’m sorry if I upset some of you by ending my column with “Those cows bawled all night.” It was edited for length and I left the part out about the apples and consolation. Don’t worry – I am neither cold nor heartless and every animal on this farm is well cared for. Right down to the last anklepecking chicken. This past week we had a houseguest while my daughter was in Costa Rica. Vitor the Great stayed with us once again and his presence filled the farmhouse, much

to the cats’ chagrin. Vitor is a Rottweiler-Shepherd mix and he is a city dog. He is accustomed to being inside except for when his owner takes him for runs in the park beside their house, three times a day. On the farm, Vitor gets to run around the yard unsupervised. He doesn’t even consider wandering down the lane to freedom and won’t venture out of the range of light after dark. He can chase squirrels and terrorize cats to his heart’s content. Only he knows that he would never hurt them if he caught one – he has an older cat at home and just loves to wrestle with him every day. But my cats don’t know

that, so they spent the twelve days he was here hiding under furniture. Every morning they scoped out the situation, peeking and sniffing around corners. If the coast was clear they would pussyfoot down the hall and up the stairs as fast as they could go, to take refuge under a bed or in an open closet for the day. Vitor occasionally would catch a glimpse of a passing tail and take off after them, digging his claws into the hardwood for traction. My floors will never be the same. During the day as I did my writing assignments at the computer Vitor would bring one toy after another and place them at my feet. When all of his toys – the tug-of-war ropes, fetching balls, Frisbee and soccer ball were amassed, I would take a break and go outside with him for some exercise. He napped in his crate all afternoon and slept soundly all night. He is a very welltrained dog, but I didn’t realize how much energy he has when I watched him last because that was July and he was outside most of the time. These are all good things

Rejoice in the sounds of Christmas with the Goulbourn Male Chorus and friends For many in the area, an important part of getting into the “Christmas spirit” is to attend the annual Christmas concert by the Goulbourn Male Chorus (GMC). There is something about the rich harmonies and clear diction of these fine male voices that sets music lovers up for the season. The program of traditional, classical, familiar and sometimes humorous music has been put together by Music Director Byron Hermann. So you shouldn’t miss this year’s concert – “Rejoice and Sing Noel” - to be held in the beautiful Trinity Presbyterian Church on Richardson Side Road, Kanata on Sunday December 11th at 2 p.m.. Special guests this year are Ken Ramsden a popular local

ottawa COMMUNITY

singer, song writer and story teller, who will be the Master of Ceremonies and oboist Robin Tropper. The a’cappella ensemble “Men of Note” – part of the GMC - will perform some pieces arranged by their own Gary Palmer. From the rousing opening title piece “Rejoice and Sing Noel” by Allan Robert Petker, through traditional English carols in beautiful arrangements, to lighter pieces ( there’s even a Grinch number), the program promises to please any audience. Watch for the amazing piano arrangement by Mark Hayes in “Silent Night” executed by the Chorus’s accompanist, Bonnie MacDiarmid. There will also be ample opportunity for audience participation in traditional carols.

Tickets are $15 each ( children under 12 are free), and may be purchased at Gaia Java and Brown’s Independent Grocery in Stittsville, from any member of the chorus, or on line at https://goulbournmalechorus.yapsody.com/ eve n t / i n d ex / 5 4 4 8 7 / g o u l bourn-male-chorus-christmas-2016. Tickets will also be available at the door, but to avoid disappointment it is best to purchase in advance. The GMC draws members from around the West end of the City and as far as Almonte, Carleton Place and Calabogie. GMC sings out at local seniors’ residences and other events, which can be found on the calendar on the webpage, www. goulbournmalechorus.com. Submitted by the Goulbourn Male Chorus

Blue Heron Mall 1500 Bank Street Ottawa, ON 613-738-TOYS (8697)

Canada’s best power wheelchair hockey players are coming to Ottawa. The Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey League celebrated the fact that it will host the 2017 Canadian Electric Wheelchair Hockey Association Nationals on Aug. 4-7 at their regular Sunday game on Nov. 27. The organization, which formed in 2009, and operates out of the Greenboro Community Centre, has grown to four teams, with families driving in from as far as Kingston for the opportunity to play. Donna Haycock is chairperson of the organization and co-chair of the nationals organizing committee. “This is such an honour,” Haycock said. “And to have it during Canada’s 150th celebrations, where everyone attending can participate in all the other events that are happening in the city, is amazing.” The four local teams — the Gators, Bears, Wolves and the Sharks — feature players using power wheelchairs and have limited or no upper body strength and have limited or no mobility. According to the league’s website, players have different disabilities.

The league is a co-ed, allages format, with the youngest player only seven years old. Players come from across the city to play in the league, and in many cases, families drive in from Kingston, Morrisburg and Kemptville to participate. The game is competitive, and very fast-paced. Every team member gets the chance to play. Coming in from Morrisburg, Ont., Judy Markell’s grandson Austin Merkley joined the league two years ago. For a boy who played hockey when he was younger until he developed muscular dystrophy, this was just what he needed. “He loves it,” Markell said, adding the drive is worth it to watch her grandson enjoying every minute of the experience. “He’s a sports kid. This is perfect for him,” Markell added. Haycock said organizing the nationals in Ottawa is something the local organization never would have thought possible when the local league first started. “We want to make this championship the best ever,” Haycock said.

The competition will take place at Carleton University’s Raven’s Nest. Twenty games will take place over the four-day event. The celebrations included an announcement that Permobil, a wheelchair manufacturer, has donated $15,000 to the event. The city’s sports commissioner, Innis Coun. Jody Mitic, helped celebrate the announcement by signing Matt Gagnon’s hockey stick, one of the league’s players Voted top newcomer at the 2016 nationals, Gagnon and his teammates were able to view the promotional video that many of them star in before getting back to the serious business of hockey on Nov. 27. The nationals will be streamed live and there are event details available online 2017Nationals.cewha.ca. Approximately 100 paraathletes are expected to participate in the nationals, with an estimated 1,000 people coming to Ottawa attend the nationals next August. There are six confirmed teams coming to Ottawa for the nationals, which begin on Aug. 4, 2017. More information about the league and the national competition is available at opwhl. com.


‘Like a gift’: Stem Cell Network grants $2.2M to clinical trials BY ERIN MCCRACKEN erin.mccracken@metroland.com

It can shut down your organs, even kill you. And for those it doesn’t kill, it can rob you of your quality of life for years and cause posttraumatic stress disorder and depression. Septic shock is caused by a bug – in the form of a virus, bacteria or fungus – that enters the body, causing severe inflammation. “It is the most severe form of infection that we see in the intensive care unit,” said Dr. Lauralyn McIntyre, Ottawa Hospital intensive care physician, senior scientist and University of Ottawa associate professor. “It causes very high mortality rates in our patients. It’s associated with a death rate of 20 to 40 per cent.” It also accounts for 20 per cent of all admissions to hospital intensive care units across Canada. But the Glebe resident and her team of researchers, who are conducting a multi-site clinical trial on septic shock, are using stem cells to wage a war against the infection. That fight will continue thanks to a $1-million grant from Canada’s Stem Cell Network, which is providing a $9-million boost to 25 research projects and six clinical trials in Canada – three of those led by the Ottawa Hospital. Funding is key for clinical trials given the millions of dollars they require. “The funding from the Stem Cell Network was like a gift to our team because we’re just so keen to start phase two,” McIntyre said of the next stage, in the trial which will likely get underway in the middle of next year and involve a larger patient sample. Her team’s work made the headlines earlier this year, long before the Nov. 24 funding announcement at the hospital’s General campus. Federal Science Minister Kristy Duncan, who was on hand for the grant announcement, highlighted the world’s first septic shock clinical trial in which a new cellular immunotherapy “is showing real promise.” Duncan referred to Charles Berniqué, of Hawkesbury, Ont., who was in critical condition when he was admitted to the Ottawa Hospital. His esophagus had burst, possibly because of severe food poisoning, leading to septic shock. After undergoing extensive treatment and surgery, he was placed in a coma. That’s when his wife agreed to enrol him in the inaugural trial. He received an intravenous infusion of 30 million mesenchymal stem cells. “In the three months that followed, he slowly recovered and today he is back at home with his family and back to work,” Duncan said, drawing applause from the large crowd of medical staff who gathered for the announcement. The results of that trial, which wrapped in June, showed the stem cells – taken from the bone marrow of healthy adults – showed promise. “The stem cells seem to calm the immune response,” said McIntyre, who led the trial with Barrhaven resident Dr. Duncan Stewart, vicepresident of research at the Ottawa Hospital. “They reduce death, they improve organ failure, and they help clear the bugs faster from the system in animal models with sepsis.” Though it will take several more years to develop a treatment, this new round of funding means the work can continue.

The funding awards represent a success story for the national Stem Cell Network, which funds Canadian stem cell projects and clinical trials, but which almost ceased to exist. Created in Ottawa in 2001 by the federal government’s National Centres of Excellence, it had 14 years of guaranteed funding. “That program had to sunset. They could not renew us,” said Blackburn Hamlet resident Dr. Michael Rudnicki, chief executive of the network and a senior scientist at the Ottawa Hospital. “So we were without means of visible support.” But the 2016 federal budget offered the promise of $12 million in bridge funding over two years. Of that, $9 million went to these new grants.

“That money also leveraged a further $20 million from our partners investing in those projects,” Rudnicki said. Stewart’s Ottawa Hospital team will also receive $1 million to move forward with its worldfirst clinical trial of a genetically enhanced stem cell therapy for heart attacks. The new dollars will help pay for additional trial sites and the treatment of about 70 more patients, over and above the 29 already treated in Ottawa. “A team led by Ottawa Hospital stem cell transplant physician Dr. Harold Atkins, of the Orléans area, is receiving $216,000 to investigate whether a stem cell procedure can prevent organ rejection in liver transplant patients. That clinical trial will involve 10 patients.

And Jing Wang, an Ottawa Hospital scientist and uOttawa professor, is part of a SickKids Hospital-led team that will receive $500,000 to continue finding ways to stimulate stem cells to repair the brain. The Stem Cell Network is working to secure continued government funding beyond the next two years. Canada was the first country in the world to create a national stem cell organization. And it has since become a global leader in stem cell research and a nation of leaders and innovators who are developing stem cell treatments for cancer, diabetes and multiple sclerosis, said Rudnicki. “It’s in our DNA,” he said. “If hockey is Canada’s sport, stem cell research is Canada’s science.”

Kate Garvie represented both the Community Foundation of Ottawa as well as EnviroCentre and Rob Tovell of the Deep Roots Food Hub, which he currently co-chairs. Another of the partner organizations in the New Leaf grant is the “Ottawa Good Food Box” program (http:// www.ottawagoodfoodbox. ca/) – which is why the Legion is now also a Good Food Box drop-off. For those of you that aren’t familiar with this program: it’s a not-for-

profit program to provide nutritious, fresh produce to folks at very, very competitive prices. You can order these Good Food boxes at the Legion or on-line, they come once a month, filled with fresh produce at an unbeatable price. To find out more, check with John Woodbeck or Sean McCarthy at the Legion. The speeches were wrapped up by Sean McCarthy from the Legion, expressing his gratitude to all the sponsors and, unexpectedly by Karen McCrimmon, who returned to the floor with a emphatic call to support

this momentum and join the Legion “...if I would ask you to do one thing, it is to join up and become a member of the Legion.” She said. Anyone can become a member of the Legion, you do not have to be a member of the Armed Forces or RCMP. Stay tuned for further updates on the next phases of the Legion’s Community Outreach Program and upcoming events. Submitted by Jacqui Ehninger-Cuervo, president of the Carp Ridge Learning Centre.

Karen McCrimmon Serving Constituents of Kanata-Carleton

Member of Parliament Kanata-Carleton Ottawa Fire Services Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser

I had the pleasure of attending the Ottawa Fire Services Habitat for Humanity spaghetti dinner fundraiser at Legion 616 in Constance Bay. I was so happy to see so much of the community come out in support of such a worthy cause. I want to wish Victor Jannick all the best as he travels to Trinidad this March to help build houses for those in need. I’d also like to thank Steve Fisher, who performed on-stage and kept the crowd entertained into the night, playing all our Canadian favourites.

Bridlewood Tree Lighting

Thank you to all those in the Bridlewood community who came out and braved the cold weather to join together in the tree lighting celebration at the Eva James Memorial Community Centre. Councillor Alan Hubley and I were delighted in the opportunity to light the tree as those present looked on, played in the snow, or sipped on some of the delicious hot chocolate handed out during the event.

Cracking Up the Capital Comedy Night

I would like to thank Councillor Alan Hubley for inviting me out as guest judge at the Cracking Up the Capital Comedy Competition Night at D’Arcy McGee’s this past week. It was an amazing night that saw many extremely funny comedians go toe-to-toe in an effort to advance to the Comedy Festival Finals this February. All proceeds of the event went towards supporting mental health initiatives in Ottawa; a cause worthy of our community’s support.

Fitzroy Township Historical Society

I’d like to extend a special thank you to those who fought the wintery weather to attend the Fitzroy Township Historical Society’s meeting in Kinburn. I had a wonderful time engaging with those who attended, and very much enjoyed the roundtable discussion that ensued. Having the opportunity to speak on the topic of women in public and learning more of the local history was a great way to cap off the night.

The little-known ties that bound together Newfoundland’s extinct Beothuk and Great Auk BY KAREN RUNTZ

Cartoonlike in its proportions and gait, with webbed feet, short legs, stubby wings and a ribbed, hooked beak nearly the size of its head, the penguin-like Great Auk and its demise are, sadly, no laughing matter. Clad in “permanent evening wear,” these now-extinct flightless birds were escorted by the hundreds if not thousands off Funk Island, a small granite outcrop 50 km off the northeast Newfoundland coast, and other such rocky islands on the North Atlantic, into foreign boats and slaughtered to replenish the crew’s meat supplies. The Great Auk’s ultimate demise in the mid-1800s, however, was due to its mass killing for down to warm the crews during harsh Newfoundland winters. Foreign contact also hurt the now-extinct indigenous inhabitants of Newfoundland, the Beothuk. It is believed that the arrival of European settlers reduced their access to the coastal areas, cutting them off from food resources such as salmon and seal, and exposing them to diseases that took a toll on the already small and dwindling population, estimated at between 500 to 700 people at the time of the Great Auks. And — here’s the intriguing part — the Beothuk also visited Funk Island and its auks on an-

Food for Thought – West Ottawa Food & Wine Show

It was a great pleasure to join Councillors Marianne Wilkinson and Alan Hubley at the 15th Annual Food for Thought - West Ottawa Food & Wine Show. The event showcased the talents of over a dozen West Ottawa Chefs. Along with beverage samplings from featured wineries and breweries, a spectacular evening was had by all! The silent and live auctions raised funds for the Kanata Food Cupboard. It is so important to support the Food Cupboard, especially at this time of year. Please come out and join us at the Kanata Food Cupboard Warehouse, 340 Legget Drive, on Saturday, Dec. 3rd from 5:30-7:30pm to help off-load the buses and fill the warehouse!

A colourful performance comes to Carp They are not a gospel choir, but the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus does not shy away from singing with gusto ‘Jesus, What A Wonderful Child’. Toes will be tapping and bodies swaying. A Christmas Kaleidoscope is a colourful concert delivering a virtual mosaic of music celebrating winter and the holiday season layered in four-part harmony. First and second sopranos lift notes gently to the rafters while first and second altos provide warm undertones. Now five-years-old, The West Ottawa Ladies Chorus has grown from a handful of ladies gathered in director Robert Dueck’s basement to a chorus of forty that is recognized as one of the major cultural groups in West Ottawa. This group of ladies, that often practice twice weekly, perform a repertoire that ranges across all vocal styles. They engage their audience and often invite them to join in. It is not uncommon for them to swing and sway to the rhythm and beat of jazzy numbers so expertly played by pianist, well known jazz artist Peter Brown. One of the traditions of the chorus is to take their music to senior residences to bring joy to those that may not otherwise enjoy the sounds of the season. Smiles spread across elderly faces is all the reward the singers need. There are often seniors that formerly sang in choirs in the audience and their voices are still rich as they join in to sing their favourite

pieces—music has longevity too. This year The West Ottawa Ladies Chorus decked out in holiday colours performed for the Bridlewood Trails residents then the following week sang at Stillwater Creek to a packed audience.

Don’t’ you love it when people call you for advice, showing they trust your insights and inner wisdom. So was it just a little while back, when I received a call from a dear friend and longtime patient in desperate need for help. She just had been to the dentist for a routine check up the day before. Even though the procedure wasn’t invasive, she went home with an annoying constant pain she’s never had prior and secretly wished she’d never gone in the first place. We did a brief phone consult and she picked up the remedies that afternoon. The next evening she called me to say that her pain had subsided and been completely gone since the morning. Amazing what our remedies can do to treat trauma effectively without drugs. What a pleasure and privilege to help people heal. Prevention is key! But can we try to prevent too much? Honestly, that completely depends on how it’s done. If you are interested in an alternative or complimentary approach to “save your smile”, call me. I’m specialized helping with , gingivitis, infections, pre/post op healing needs (including wisdom tooth removal and grafting) as well as any emotional issues that might be experienced like anxiety and phobias. Don’t be a “buzzing bee” in that dental chair nor avoid going at all. Instead get in touch and learn to prevent the proper all natural way. Dental Health - drug free

Feeding birds in your backyard involves you in the number two pastime in North America, topped only by gardening. Indeed, birding and gardening tend to go hand in hand which is why perhaps Ritchie Feed & Seed is a “go to” place for both pastimes. It attracts many gardeners but also serves a lot of backyard birders. Jim Tutton, Ritchie’s specialist when it comes to backyard birding, noted in a birding seminar presented at the “Holiday Kick-Off Bazaar” at Ritchie’s Richmond location on Nov. 26 that Ritchie’s knows what it is doing in terms of birding given that Ritchie’s sells 16,000 pounds of bird seed in a week. Now that’s a lot of seed for birds! This was the first time that Jim has delivered a birding seminar at the Richmond location but it won’t be the last as he notes that bird seed sales are climbing at the Richmond outlet. He has offered many such birding seminars at Ritchie’s Ottawa headquarters on Windmill Lane. He gave this first-ever seminar at the Richmond location a title “Did you know?” as he covered a variety of topics and then responded to questions. Jim noted that birds need water to drink in the winter. He said that one way of providing such water is to purchase a relatively inexpensive “heated pet bowl” ($29.99) which will keep the water from freezing. But it is also important to put rocks in the bowl which extend above the rim of the bowl so that birds have something to stand on as they drink the water. You can even put this heated pet bowl in your pedestal bird bath if you wish. Jim said that you will get lots of birds visit-

ing your backyard in the winter if you provide such a drinking spot. And such a “heated pet bowl” takes very little electricity to operate. In speaking about bird feeders, Jim praised the “Squirrel Buster” feeder, a Canadian-made feeder that is activated by the weight of the bird landing on it. “Virtually nothing goes wrong with this Squirrel Buster feeder,” he said. Jim pointed out that there are four main seeds for birds: black oil sunflower seed, peanuts out of the shell, safflower seed and striped sunflower seed. But he advised that if you want to draw more birds to your backyard feeder, you should put a mix of two or three different types of seed in the feeder. He said that more and more birds appear to be liking safflower seed including cardinals, chickadees, purple finch and mourning doves. The more variety of seed that there is in a feeder, the more variety of birds will use the feeder, he said. Jim observed that there have been changes in recent years over what birds are eating at feeders. He said that up until a couple of years ago, cardinals would never be found eating suet. But the introduction of a product called Suet Nuggets has changed this. These suet nuggets can be mixed with seed in feeders in the winter, attracting not only cardinals but also chickadees and downy woodpeckers among other birds. Suet is full of energy and these birds tend to load up on the suet’s energy to get them through a cold winter’s night. Jim noted that there are poles available on which to place a feeder. He said that the advantage of a pole is that it lets you put the bird feeder where you want it to be, saying that birds will find the feeder. Jim said that cardinals are the hardest bird to please in terms of a bird feeder, usually being the last bird to feel comfortable at a backyard feeder. Cardinals will eventually patronize a feeder but it must have a feeding area that allows them to look around and the feeder must contain seed that they like. A seed catcher tray beneath a feeder not only prevents seed from dropping to the ground and creating a mess but also becomes a seed station itself for the birds. Jim stressed that it is important that a feeder be kept clean, cleaned perhaps as often as once a week. He said that bird feeders come apart easily for such cleaning. He himself uses a little bit of vinegar mixed with water in cleaning his backyard feeder. He said that a feeder will last and last and continue to attract birds if it is kept clean. Jim noted that peanuts in the shell are still a popular bird seed, noting more of this seed is probably sold in Ottawa than in any other city in North America. He said that bluejays will eat peanuts in the shell before touching any peanuts that are out of the shell. Jim advocated purchasing a field guide bird book dealing with birds in northeast North America, saying such books are useful to the backyard birder.


Long-term radon gas exposure ups lung cancer risk BY JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

When Jeff Strickland tested his Morgan’s Grant home for radon the levels of the radioactive gas found were between 1,100 and 1,200 Becquerels per cubic metre, far exceeding Health Canada’s acceptable guideline level of 200. Strickland talked about his family’s experience with installing a radon reduction system at a public meeting at the Mlacak Centre on Nov. 21. More than 175 people attended. “We started to do our research and we found that radon is odourless, it’s colourless, you can’t tell if it’s there – you have to test,” he told the crowd. “With that system installed we went from 1,100-to-1,200 (Becquerels per cubic metre) to below 100.” Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the ground and is found in all buildings throughout the city and across the country, said Kelley Bush, head of radon education and awareness with Health Canada. It comes in through cracks and gaps in foundation floors and even if the floor is completely sealed, concrete is porous, said Bush. “As long as your house is touching the ground, it’s going to have some radon in it,” she said. “The only way to know how much is to

test.” Strickland’s next-door neighbours on either side tested below the 200 Becquerels per cubic metre mark, while another home in his neighbourhood was above 2,000. Long-term exposure to the gas can lead to lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada, and the leading cause for non-smokers. The risk of lung-cancer for a non-smoker exposed to high levels of radon gas over a long

period of time is about one in 20. For smokers, that risk increases to one in three, said Bush. “Based on research that we’ve done we estimate that over 3,000 people a year die of radoninduced lung cancer,” she said. “While that is a big number, the reason we’re here, the reason we have a national radon program, is because there is something you can do about it. And the risk is long-term so it’s never too late to test and it’s never too late to reduce the amount of radon in your homes if you need to.”

TEST YOUR HOME

Health Canada recommends that people test their home, either using a certified do-it-yourself kit or by hiring a qualified professional. The test should be conducted over a minimum of three months on the lowest level of a home to ensure an accurate reading as radon levels can fluctuate. See HEALTH CANADA, page 41

As a litigation lawyer, I am often retained weeks, months or even years after a client has suffered an injury as a result of another’s negligence. Ideally, if you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should contact a lawyer promptly to review the circumstances of the incident. I routinely meet people for a no obligation consultation to discuss matters such as liability, limitation periods and evidence that must be preserved. At the scene of the accident, you should take several steps immediately, whether it is a motor-vehicle accident or a slip and fall, a dog bite or injury caused by a defective product: 1. Identify who is responsible (i.e. exchange of information). If possible, take photographs of obvious material damage (in the case of a motor vehicle collision, take photos of the other party’s car as well as your own); 2. Record via photographs or notes how the incident occurred (e.g. slip fall on uneven pavement); and 3. Identify and obtain contact information of any witnesses to the incident – this is crucial, as witnesses can be lost forever if not identified at the scene. As a lawyer representing injured people, I have found that taking these easy steps can be the difference between having a long drawn out fight about legal liability and moving to a meaningful discussion about compensation reasonably quickly.

Ferry Road to get full resurfacing by late 2018 Road users complaining of poor condition since 2014 BY KELLY MCCARTHY kmccarthy@metroland.com

Users of Ferry Road are not happy with its condition. A group of people has been lodging complaints with the City of Ottawa for more than two years in an attempt to get the road, which is the main route to the Quyon Ferry in Fitzroy Harbour, resurfaced or rehabilitated in some way. They’ve been communicating back and forth with the city on a regular basis, to seemingly no avail. “It is just bump, bump, bump all the time on that road,” said David Thompson, an Arnprior resident who has been spearheading the campaign to fix the road. “It is just in such an awful state of disrepair.” Thompson took it upon himself to do something about the road’s sorry state in 2013 or 2014 when he couldn’t stand it anymore, he said. He travels Ferry Road seven to nine times a year to take the boat over the Quebec, and has since limited those trips in an effort to save his vehicle.

“I’m just fed up with it,” he said, “and so is everyone else.” Thompson said he’s spoken with several residents and visitors of the area in the time of his campaign with the city who have all expressed frustration over the condition of the road. Ferry Road sees a significant volume of traffic due to it being the direct route to the Quyon Ferry, which is the only way to cross into Quebec west of the city. A few years ago, Thompson said, the ferry expanded its operations from a seven-car hold to a 21-car hold and also adopted the ability to carry transport trucks. This meant that the traffic on Ferry Road increased, and the state of the road fell further into disrepair. As a retired man himself, Thompson decided to spearhead the initiative to get the road repaired. He’s had back and forth communication with the city and has sent numerous emails to Coun. Eli El-Chantiry and the mayor’s office. “They kept giving me excuses,” he said. “It was either a

ottawa COMMUNITY

budget issue or they didn’t have the time.” As a result, Thompson said he and others who use Ferry Road have started taking a lengthy detour that comes out partway down Ferry Road to avoid some of the bumps. “So at least now the cars are only being damaged for half the time,” he said. Thompson said that he has seen no movement from the city based on his complaints so far. The good news for Thompson and other Ferry Road users is that the road is slated to be completely refurbished and resurfaced in 2017 and 2018. “The road will be completely done by the end of 2018,” said El-Chantiry. “We can give (the road’s users) that good news.” El-Chantiry said he is well aware of the complaints that have been lodged against Ferry Road over the years, and that he is always working to stay on top of road maintenance in his ward. The City of Ottawa, in the past, has spent an average of $12 million on rural road main-

news

tenance each year. It’s a huge undertaking, with a network of 855 kilometres of roads in West Carleton ward alone. In fact, El-Chantiry said that one-third of the city’s road’s budget is spent in his ward each year. Twice a year, El-Chantiry gets together with a couple of the city’s road engineers to tour his ward, take photos and gather samples of roads to help determine which roads are in the most need of repairs. He does this in the fall and in the spring. In the last few years, El-Chantiry said the city has had to focus mainly on high-traffic collector roads and bridges. “There are a number of things the city considers when looking at which roads need to be repaired,” he said, “including traffic and condition.” “I admit we have spent most of our time on the collector roads and bridges,” he said. “We have repaired almost all of the bridges in West Carleton.” Now he said, the city has room to turn to side roads and less high-traffic roads and work on those. In the 2017 draft budget, the city currently has $14 million

be done in 2018. Ultimately, the city has a process to follow to determine which roads are next in line for repairs, the councillor said. However, complaints made to either himself or the city through 311 are logged, and El-Chantiry said he makes sure he visits those roads on his tour to see the condition for himself. “We always want to know what is going on in our ward,” El-Chantiry said.

Ottawa Nationals win 2016 World Broomball Championship The Ottawa Nationals Elite Men’s Broomball Team captured the 25th Anniversary event, going undefeated in nine straight games. The championship commenced Nov. 1 and culminated in a 2-1 nail biter against local Saskatchewan favourite, Bruno Axemen. Bruno and the Nationals met in the round robin and fittingly played to a 2-2 tie. In both games the Nationals jumped out to 2-0 leads, but in the final managed to finish the deal, receiving markers from Kyle Killeen and Joey Kealey, but not before some very intense closing moments. While the Round Robin featured some blow outs, the semi-final was anything but as the Nationals came from two goals down late in the game to unseat Odessa Renegades, another crowd favourite from Saskatchewan. In this one, power play goals put the Renegades in front by two with four minutes remaining. From here, the Nationals youth core took over with Kyle Killeen from Jeremiah Weideman starting it off with three minutes on the clock. With one minute to go Joey Kealey tied up from Jeremiah Wiedeman and Weideman finished off on the power play from Joey Kealey, 15 minutes into overtime. Over the event the Nationals outscored the opposition 56 – 5 with strong goaltending from Per Luc Sauve and Buddy White Brown. Other game summaries were as follows:

Health Canada: ‘It’s never too late to test’ Continued from page 29

A radon test kit costs about $80 from the city and includes lab fees. The Canadian Cancer Society is offering discounted radon gas test kits online for $30 (plus a $12 shipping fee). For every kit sold, $12 is donated to the cancer society. “The protection of Canadians from all things cancer-related is something we take quite seriously,” said Laura Lafantaisie, volunteer engagement co-ordinator with the cancer society. “Just because one house is fine doesn’t mean next door is. The only way to know how safe your home is to test it.” Winter is the best season to test a home as houses are more tightly sealed during the cold months. Mitigation systems for homes that test positive for high levels of radon “are very effective,” said Bush. A pipe is installed through the foundation floor to the outside either at ground or roof level. A fan attached to the pipe draws the radon from under a home and pushes it outside. “It can reduce the radon level by 80 per cent,” said Bush. The cost for a system runs around $2,000 to $3,000. “It’s equivalent to other home maintenance costs like a furnace or an air conditioner,” she said. New homebuilders in Ottawa will cover the cost of installing a mitigation system under the one-year warranty, while Tarion covers new homes between two- to seven-years-old, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne

CONTEST

JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

More than 175 people attend a public meeting on radon gas held at the Mlacak Centre on Nov. 21. Radon experts at the meeting encourage people to test their homes for the radioactive gas as long-term exposure can lead to increased health risks such as lung cancer. Wilkinson. “If your home is under seven years old don’t wait any longer to get tested,” she said. Wilkinson tested her house and it was below the guideline level. The Ontario government is currently looking at changes to the provincial building code to reflect changes made in the national code when it comes to radon gas. The national code requires builders to consider radon protection in their designs to minimize the level of the gas entering through foundation floors. It also includes installing a roughin for a future radon reduction system should one be required. These requirements are currently not part of the provincial building code, however, many new homebuilders “have been voluntarily putting rough-ins into new homes in Kanata,” said Wilkinson. The Canadian Cancer Soci-

ety encourages people to contact their local MPP to “let them know that they believe radon is an important issue and they believe the codes need to be changed to have an impact,” said Lafantaisie, who lives in Katimaivk. People can send a letter of support to their MPP through the cancer society’s campaign at takeaction.cancer.ca. Strickland said he’s happy he tested his home and encourages others to do so. “It’s extremely simple; take the time, do the test,” he said. “My wife and I feel great having a home that is safer for our children.” To find a certified radon mitigation professional recognized by Health Canada, visit c-nrpp. ca or call 1-855-722-6777.

Listen to the Chickadees they have lots to say BY MICHAEL RUNTZ

In last week’s column I lamented the Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s choice of the Grey Jay as their candidate for our national bird. My favourite, the Blackcapped Chickadee, was suspiciously ruled out and I expressed my displeasure. Well, the day after I wrote that column it seemed those charming little birds wanted to reward me for my patronage. Halfway through my early morning property walk I arrived at the lookout that gives me a grand view of a small marsh and creek, a narrow field on the far side of the marsh, a south-facing hill covered in large oaks and maples, and a narrow bay leading into our lake. From this vantage point I scan the water for ducks, and the forest, field, and marsh for other living things. I also call for birds, which I did on this recent outing. After a few minutes, my “pishing” calls caught the attention of some Black-capped Chickadees that were foraging somewhere in the trees below the small cliff on which I stood. After a while the chickadees’ calls became stronger and their “dee” notes more repetitive. Soon the chips of Dark-eyed Juncos and, eventually, the screams of Blue Jays joined the chorus. My heart pounded fast-

er because I knew the birds had found something of interest! As do many birds, chickadees utter specific types of alarm calls when they encounter predators. If the threat is imminent, they give high-pitched “seet” notes that warn family members of danger without revealing the caller’s location. And like other birds, they give loud, locatable alarm calls in response to stationary predators. However, unlike other birds, chickadees vary their noisy “mobbing” calls in response to the type of danger. The number of “dee” notes in each call reveals to other chickadees (and other eavesdropping birds) the predator’s size. A large one, such as a Great Grey Owl, elicits alarm calls with two “dees” per call (“chick-a-dee dee”), which gets

When Boreal Owls are seen in our area, which is rarely, they are usually first found by chickadees and Blue Jays. repeated. A medium-sized, perched hawk such as a Cooper’s results in the “dee” notes increasing to three; a small, roosting owl brings them to four. The chickadees on my walk were repeatedly calling: “chicka-dee dee dee dee!” The birds were calling from a pine but from my vantage point I couldn’t see the source

of their excitement so I scrambled down the cliff and made my way through thick junipers (which contributed little pins to my socks) to get closer. When I finally neared the tree and peered through its branches I could clearly see a tiny Northern Saw-whet Owl! The size of a closed fist, a Northern Saw-whet Owl is our smallest owl.

While they pose no threat in daytime, Saw-whets will capture small birds sleeping at night, which is why chickadees and other small birds harass them in daytime in an effort to drive them out of their forest. This Saw-whet, however, didn’t seem overly perturbed and eventually the noisy mob moved on.

Over the years, chickadees have led me to many small owls like this Saw-whet. But I cannot think of one instance where Gray Jays have done the same. Yet another reason why the Black-capped Chickadee should be our national bird! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca

Maple syrup makes fudge tastier Many feel that creamy fudge is one of the best uses for our amazing Ontario maple syrup. Make this and you’ll understand why. To achieve the right texture, it is essential to use an accurate candy thermometer. Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 22 minutes Cooling Time: about 2 hours Makes: 36 pieces INGREDIENTS

•1 tbsp (15 mL) butter (for saucepan and bowl) • 3/4 cup (175 mL) maple syrup • 1 cup (250 mL) each granulated and packed brown sugars • 1 cup (250 mL) 35 per cent whipping cream • 1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda • 2 tbsp (25 mL) butter • 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

Using 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter, generously butter heatproof bowl and sides of highsided heavy-bottomed 4 quart (4 L) pot; set bowl aside. In large pot, combine maple syrup, granulated and brown sugars, whipping cream, baking soda, 2 tbsp (25 mL) butter and va-

nilla; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon, until boiling. Clip candy thermometer to side of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue boiling vigorously, without stirring, until candy thermometer reaches 240°F (115°C), about 15 minutes. Pour hot mixture into prepared bowl and set on heatproof surface. Let cool, without stirring, to 110°F (43°C), about two hours (bottom of bowl will feel warm, not hot). Using electric mixer, beat on low speed until thick and sheen is gone, about five minutes. Spread in parchment paper-lined 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish. Smooth top. When firm, use parchment paper to lift out onto cutting board. Remove parchment paper. Cut into squares and store in covered container in a cool place for up to two weeks. NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION

Glamorous fundraiser brings out hundreds BY MICHELLE NASH BAKER michelle.nash@metroland.com

A fundraiser in Kanata takes one person’s trash and makes it another’s treasure. The All that Glam – Give a Jewel Feed a School fundraiser took place at the Richcraft Recreation Complex on Nov. 26 and welcomed hundreds of jewelry lovers out on a Saturday morning to pick up their next best accessories for a steal of a price. Over the course of four years, the fundraiser, thanks to corporate matching has raised nearly $100,000 for breakfast programs at a Nunavut school. And it’s all thanks to a mother-daughter team. It all started when then Grade 12 Stittsville student Eva Von Jagow, was researching Nunavut for a school project when she learned just how much food costs in northern Canada.

Overwhelmed by the fact that a jar of peanut butter could cost nearly $18, and those children in the region tend to start their days off hungry or with poor nutrition, Eva turned to her mother, Karen Von Jagow and said she wanted to help. “It was wrong and I needed to do something,” Eva said. Eva and her mother came up with the idea to repurpose purses and handbags and jewelry that was just collecting dust in their home. That idea has grown into a not-for-profit organization and an event that saw long line-ups at the complex early in the morning. All the money raised goes directly to the breakfast program. “We are over the moon with the outpouring of support,” Eva said. This year the fundraiser included artwork and art pieces from the student recipients

from the Nunavut school, Coral Harbor School, both on display as well as part of the silent auction at the sale. Now 22 years old, Eva said this issue is a Canadian issue and the fact the sale brings out so many supporters is amazing – nearly 700 to 800 shoppers throughout the day. She added she hopes that this fundraiser can help raise awareness to the high costs of food. “It’s not right and it took me until I was in Grade 12 to realize it,” she said. Proud of what her daughter and the community can do to help, Karen agreed with Eva about spreading the word. “Just because it’s 2,000 miles (3,218 kilometres) away, it doesn’t mean it’s not our backyard,” Karen said. Karen said that even after the fundraiser is over their work is not done. “We pretty much start planning the next day,” Karen said. Donations are accepted throughout the year. For more information about the fundraiser, the breakfast program or to donate jewelry and handbags visit allthatglamfundraiser.com.

Ennis Sisters perform in Richmond BY JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

Music filled the air at the Father Michael Gillissie Parish Hall at St. Philip’s Church in Richmond on Friday evening, Nov. 25. It was all thanks to Newfoundland’s Ennis Sisters who presented “An East Coast Family Christmas” at the venue. But the concert proved so enjoyable for the capacity crowd of 300 not only because of the music ranging from traditional Christmas songs to high energy Newfoundland tunes to songs associated with singers such as Garth Brooks and Newfoundland’s own renowned singer/songwriter the late Ron Hynes but also because of the added performance ingredients of humour and dance. Laughter was generated throughout the two hour show, mainly by or at the expense of Ennis sister Karen. And then lively stepdancing by sisters Karen and Teresa at the conclusion of both the first and second halves of the concert added yet another dimension to the vocal offerings at the concert. And these vocal offerings were not just provided by the Ennis sisters. Mark Murphy, an accomplished musician and singer in his own right who has toured as a backup musician with the Ennis Sisters for about 15 years, sang a most memorable and touching rendition of “O Holy Night.” While a second backup musician, Aaron Collis, did not perform any solo vocals like Mark, his musicianship on a variety of instruments helped create the Newfie feel to the concert’s music. It is no wonder that he is considered one of Newfoundland’s outstanding proponents of its traditional music. Add to all this Karen’s flute, Teresa’s

occasional rattle and tambourine flourishes and lead singer Maureen’s guitar and you have not just any old concert but a virtual Newfie party. The Ennis Sisters (that’s fraternal sisters, not nunnery sisters, Karen pointed out in one of her many comments during the concert) showed why they have won a Juno Award, a SOCAN award and multiple East Coast Music Awards and Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards in their two-decade career. Their inspirational harmonies, step dancing and stage rapport with the audience were all clearly in evidence in this Richmond performance. This was one stop on what will be a 28 performance tour covering just 32 days ending on Dec. 22, the seventh year that the Ennis Sisters have undertaken such a Christmas tour which began that first year with just seven Newfoundland concerts and has since grown to today’s widespread tour. The trio sang a medley of what was claimed in a poll to be the three most popular Christmas songs in Newfoundland – “An Old Christmas Card” which was recorded by American singer Jim Reeves back in 1963, “White Christmas,” the 1942 Irving Berlin song whose recording by Bing Crosby has made it probably the best selling song of all time and “Blue Christmas,” a 1948 song that became a rock ‘n roll holiday classic when recorded by Elvin Presley in 1957. “Tiny Trinkets,” a song written by Maureen with her fiancée, told about decorations on a Christmas tree and their special individual meanings. A rousing medley of Christmas tunes including “Jingle Bells” ended the first half of the concert with an energetic musical flourish complete with step dancing by Karen and Teresa. The second half of the concert be-

gan with a moving song written to help with the healing from the 2008 death of a beloved cousin who had committed suicide. The song “Sing You Home” was sung in a 100th anniversary remembrance ceremony for the Newfoundland Regiment’s devastating battle of Beaumont Hamel on July 1, 1916 in World War One earlier this year. The Ennis Sisters sang “The Gift,” a song from the 1992 top selling Christmas album “Beyond the Season” by Garth Brooks. It is a song that the sisters have included in their concert repertoire ever since beginning these Christmas tours seven years ago. The Ennis Sisters also sang “I’ll Be There Christmas Eve,” a song which their fellow Newfoundland performer the late Ron Hynes re-wrote just for them and which has become the Ennis Sisters’ signature holiday song from their 1998 album “Christmas On Ennis Road.” A raffle for Ottawa Senators tickets and a gift basket was held at the concert. CD’s by the Ennis Sisters and by Mark Murphy were also on sale at the concert. All of the proceeds from the concert are going to the capital campaign for the new covered canopy which was recently erected at the front door of St. Philip’s Church. It is one of the parish’s projects leading up to the celebration of the parish’s 200th anniversary in 2019. St. Philip’s managed to arrange this concert by the Ennis Sisters in Richmond thanks to assistance from Rev. Bill Penney, a former parish priest at St. Philip’s who is now at Our Lady of Visitation Parish in South Gloucester. A native of Newfoundland himself, he arranged for the Ennis Sisters to perform at his parish last year, resulting in an enjoyable concert.

WELCOMING THE WORLD TO OTTAWA 2017 By: Jim Watson Mayor of Ottawa As winter falls upon us and Canada’s 150th Birthday is only weeks away, I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. 2017 will be a historic year in the nation’s capital. We have worked hard to prepare Ottawa to welcome the world as host of these celebrations. I still remember the excitement of Expo ’67 during Canada’s centennial year. The whole nation rallied together to create a year of lasting memories and experiences that transcended generations, and we plan to do it once again during Canada’s upcoming sesquicentennial. It seems like yesterday that I announced the creation of the 2017 Bureau to begin preparations for Canada’s Big Year. Now with 2017 only weeks away and 12 full months of big, bold, immersive and moving experiences about to begin, we will soon enjoy the fruits of our labour. This is an exciting opportunity to not only commemorate the progress we’ve made as a nation, but it is a chance to look forward towards the future. The energy, excitement and investments generated by Ottawa’s 2017 celebrations will serve as a catalyst for long-term tourism growth. I encourage you to visit www.ottawa2017.ca and sign up for the newsletter to stay up to date and receive the latest news on the many upcoming events and celebrations. Here are just a few to look forward to, early in the New Year: • New Year’s Eve – December 31st – Ottawa2017.ca - Lighting of the Ottawa 2017 cauldron at Ottawa City Hall kicks off a familyfriendly New Year’s Eve celebration, leading to a national celebration on Parliament Hill with fireworks at 8:17pm (20:17) and midnight. • Canadian Tire National Skating Championships – January 16 -22 - skatecanada.ca • Red Bull Crashed Ice – March 3-4 - redbullcontentpool.com • JUNO Awards - April 1st – 2nd, 2017 - Junoawards.ca Canada is a diverse country, and we will host an equally diverse selection of large signature events, such as the Canadian Video Game Awards, the Canadian Track and Field Championships, The Canadian Olympic Curling Trials - Roar of the Rings, the 105th Grey Cup and many more. We have also worked hard to ensure that residents and visitors alike can partake in many Ottawa 2017 celebrations at no cost: : the Underground Multi-media Experience, La Machine, Inspiration Village and Ottawa Welcomes the World are just a few of free signature events not to miss. Ottawa 2017 will be a once-in-a-lifetime celebration and I encourage you to get involved. If you would like to plan your own community even, volunteer or simply learn more, visit www.ottawa2017.ca.
