City approves budget with 1.9 per cent increase

News - A battle over accused “queue jumping” for a sidewalk in Alta Vista ward was almost the only item that stood between the city budget and speedy council approval on Nov. 27. Councillors quibbled over the $1.4-million expense to add sidewalks and street lights to Lynda Lane, a street near the Ottawa hospital campus that visitors to the hospital often use for parking. Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, Mayor Jim Watson and deputy city manager Nancy Schepers insisted the project has been in their radar and was only left out of the budget due to a clerical error. Other councillors, including Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, questioned why the project was coming back out of the blue after council made a decision to take it out of the budget in 2003. “It sounds like queue jumping to me,” Deans said. “It’s a little hard to understand how it gets walked onto the floor of the budget at the last minute.” Hume said the project was taken out of the budget to find savings but it was supposed to be put back in this year. “It had to be delayed because we needed money to provide that taxpayer relief,” he said. “Since that time, it has been waiting patiently to receive its budget allocation.” “It was one of these items that slipped between the cracks, plain and simple,” the mayor said. Councillors eventually voted to approve adding the Lynda Lane project into the budget. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes wanted to see the city put more money into day programs that provide food for low-income residents after hearing from groups that said they can’t provide nutritious foods on such a tight budget. “You may as well eat wallpaper,” Holmes said of the nutritional value of “white crackers” groups said they hand out to clients.

Stories and music to fill St. James Church Ridgway said rather than the music “accompanying� the stories, it is more about “the music approximating the feeling of the story.� For example, one story that will be read is the classic short story The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry. Set in New York City a little after the turn of the last century, the story is about a young, impoverished couple struggling to find gifts for one another. “We’ll play jazz music, Gershwin songs during the reading,� Ridgway said. An obscure northern European myth will have similar music as a backdrop. A number of other performances will also take place.

Arts – Get your fill of Christmas stories and seasonal music all in one night. St. James Anglican Church in Carp, next to the fairgrounds, hosts an evening of holiday tales and brass music. “Everybody’s doing Christmas concerts. We wanted to do something a little different,� said Alan Ridgway. The trumpet player is with NorthWinds Brass Quintet, which formed soon after the dissolution of the RCMP band some 20 years ago. They’ve entertained audiences in and around the city ever since.

The night is a fundraiser for St. James’ music ministry. Proceeds will be split with the performers. The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 13. The cost $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students; $10 for kids. It is recommended for ages 12 and up. It takes place in the church. Tickets available at the door.

Kanellakos said. Upfront funding for capital investments like freezers that would allow agencies to store foods could be part of the solution, he added. Not much else changed since the city tabled its $2.6 billion operating and $359.2 million capital works budget on Oct. 23. Homeowners in the Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban area will see an average increase of $62 on their city tax bill in 2014, while the increase for the average rural homeowner is about $55 for the city portion.

A tractor trailer en route from British Columbia to Brockville caught fire on Saturday morning along Highway 417. No one was injured and most of the load of wood the truck was carrying was saved by firefighters.

Truck carrying wood catches fire on highway Saturday News – A double load tractor trailer en route from British Columbia to Brockville caught fire while travelling along Highway 417 in West Carleton Nov. 30. The incident occurred just before 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning when the tires of truck caught fire. The driver pulled over and attempted to extinguish the fire but the load of western cedar being carried by the truck also caught fire. According to West Sector Fire Chief Chris Burke, fire crews from

West Carleton and the Arnprior Fire Department attended the scene to extinguish the load of cedar. Firefighters “managed to save about 80 per cent of the load, however six tires were burned off the truck,” Burke told the West Carleton Review. He added the driver was not injured. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) closed Highway 417 eastbound between Arnprior and Kinburn Side Road for several hours as emergency personnel cleaned up the scene and salted the road.

Council rejects special exemptions for rural development Liveable Ottawa plan approved after much debate over easing low-density rural building laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Much of the debate over the city’s “Liveable Ottawa” Official Plan update focused on rejecting one-by-one attempts by councillors to ease rural development rules. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais led the charge to loosen the rules and promote low-density development in rural areas, but were almost entirely rejected by both city staff and councillors. Thompson’s first move was to reduce the required size for a severed lot from 10 hectares to eight hectares. “What we would end up seeing is a lot of scattered development with this motion,” said planning manager Lee Ann Snedden. “This starts to chip away at that policy and becomes quite precedent setting.” “I respect city staff, but it just doesn’t make sense to me,” he said, pointing out there is less land available for development because some of the properties counted are abandoned quarries. “I’m not one to discredit staff but those numbers are not accurate.” Reducing the size required of a

parcel of land severed from a main lot would only add the possibility of around 300 extra lots in the city, Thompson said. “It’s not a big issue,” he said. Thompson’s efforts to expand the village of Greely’s boundaries at the request of three property owners, including Sunset Lakes developer Dan Anderson, was also shot down. The councillor said it makes sense to “round off” the awkward shape of the village’s boundary, which defines where subdivisions can be developed. Staff responded that repeated reviews of the rural land supply have shown there is already more than enough developable land supply in all the villages, including Greely, without expanding its boundary. But staff didn’t discount adding the lands in the future. Thompson also unsuccessfully tried to get councillors to enshrine a number of exemptions to the rules for specific properties into the city’s Official Plan. He said his push to allow the owners at 6430 Snake Island Rd. to sever their lot to create a too-small 9.2-hectare parcel was just part of his job. “That’s part of my role as a coun-

cillor,” he said, likening the request to calls he gets from residents asking him to help get the snow on their street plowed. That land had already been severed into three properties under the laws of the former township of Osgoode, a memo from staff stated. Staff did not support Thompson’s idea to allow the lot to be further diced up. “We believe in this particular case … we are once again contradicting on how we want to develop the rural area,” Snedden said. Staff also shot down Thompson’s attempt to extend city water and sewer services to 5640 Bank St.,

7101 Marco St. and a portion of 7041 Mitch Owens Rd., which are located in the unserviced rural area. The property owners themselves are required to make the case that suitable private well/septic servicing is not possible or that other nearby landowners might also be interested in hooking up to the city’s services. “I know every time I talk about bringing municipal services beyond the urban boundary it promotes another gray hair on (planning committee chairman Coun. Peter) Hume’s head,” Thompson joked. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais also tried to get the development rules relaxed for a village in his ward. He asked for the ban on countrylot estate subdivisions to be lifted for an area around Cumberland village where the former municipality had planned for that kind of development. Again, staff shot down the idea. “Staff consider this motion as a step backward in trying to achieve the primacy of the village development in the rural area,” staff wrote. But staff did support an exemption to allow country-lot estate subdivision development on lands owned by Cavanagh as a concession

to resolve the last outstanding appeal to Ottawa’s last Official Plan update and urban boundary expansion. Even though the city just completed a two-year review of rural villages in early 2012 that concluded there is enough land within the village boundaries to meet development needs for the next 10 years, Blais also attempted to seek a comprehensive review to see whether land should be added to villages. Staff responded that Blais’s motion ignores the city’s policy to concentrate development in Ottawa’s medium- and large-sized villages. An assessment of rural land requirements will be included in the next review of the Official Plan five years from now. Council supported Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder’s suggestion to set up a mineral aggregate stakeholders group. The group will invite rural residents who live near sites zoned as quarries to participate in a future review of aggregate mapping to determine whether the existing designations are still rational. But a request for neighbouring development to be set back further from quarries next door was shot down because the distances are set by the province.

Notice of Public Open House Queen Street Renewal: Bronson Avenue to Elgin Street - Environmental Assessment & Design Wednesday, December 11, 2013 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, Jean Pigott Hall The City of Ottawa is undertaking an Environmental Assessment and detailed design study for the proposed Queen Street Renewal project. The project involves a comprehensive streetscape renewal of the Queen Street surface infrastructure from Bronson Avenue to Elgin Street (see map).

Parade spirit The West Carleton Wolverines Football Club took part in the Arnrior Santa Claus parade Nov. 30.

The anticipated modifications to the street surface will be in support of the Confederation Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project and will address the anticipated increase in pedestrian volumes resulting from two LRT stations that will be constructed along Queen Street. The project will also be guided by the Vision and Strategic Directions of the City’s associated Downtown Moves: Transforming Ottawa’s Streets initiative, which designates Queen Street as a “Showcase Street”.

613-592-6193

The study process is following the requirements of a Schedule ‘C’ project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process.

Proudly Serving Kanata for over 30 Years!

At the meeting, information regarding the study process, project objectives, existing conditions, alternative designs, and the preliminary evaluation of the alternatives, will be presented. City Staff and their consultants will be available to answer questions. For further information or to provide comments, contact the City’s project manager or the consulting team project manager at the addresses below.

Give what you can, because need knows no season DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife their Christmas fundraising. If like me, you cannot afford to give a lot to the needy but would like to help your North Grenville neighbours who don’t have enough this Christmas, consider donating a few hours of your time. Call The Salvation Army office at 613-258-3583 and get yourself signed up. They will assign you a twohour shift, at one of our local retail stations. You just need to look people in the eye, smile, and wish them a Merry Christmas and thank them if they choose to put something in the kettle. And if you have as much fun as I do, sign yourself up for another shift, and another. My first kettle shift at the LCBO this year brought in close to $600 in two hours. Think of that. Without a bell-ringer, the Salvation Army would not have

that money to give back to the people in their community programs. They are short of volunteers and really need your help ringing the bells this year. You don’t have to commit to anything. Just do one two-hour shift and see how you like it. And I thank you, in advance. KETTLE CAMPAIGN

The money you will bring in during your shift goes directly back into the programs that help the needy in North Grenville, this Christmas and all year long. The Christmas Kettle campaign is the Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser of the year. This Christmas, they hope to bring in over $50,000. The Salvation Army in Kemptville has a new team this year. Calvin and Erin Wong have the training and resources to help people in need, and they

certainly have the heart. What they need is for people to sign up. If you or someone you know is in need this Christmas, please contact them. Last year close to 130 Christmas baskets were distributed through The Salvation Army in North Grenville. This year, just 40 families have signed up to receive this program. Yes, you need to fill out some paperwork and have an interview regarding your situation in order to qualify for this program. But that is just due diligence and an important part of being good stewards of the donations that have been entrusted to them by the community. If you need help this Christmas, contact them. They want to help you. Maybe you don’t regularly need help but this month in particular is going to be extremely difficult. Give them a call. They are here to help. STAR 975, your community radio station, is partnering with The Salvation Army on Friday, December 6th, to assist in this year’s Christmas campaign. Please consider calling in at 613-258-0467 and donating

what you can to help. DONATE WHAT YOU CAN

I would like to challenge those in our community who have been blessed, who have more than enough. Please call in and donate what you can for this worthy cause. To our local business people. If you have had a good year, please share it with those in need. And if you

have been helped by The Salvation Army in your life, please call and share your story with us, or come to the station and let us put you on the air. This is important, and we need to do what we can. Because need knows no season. Thank you, and Merry Christmas. You can email Diana at dianafisher1@gmail.com or visit theaccidentalfarmwife.blogspot.com.

Lifestyle - It’s that time of year again. Most grocery stores and shopping malls are manned by a Salvation Army bell-ringer this month, collecting cash for people in need. If you do as Nickelback says and “donate every time you’re asked,” you will have given a sizeable amount by the time Christmas rolls around. Pace yourself! I have volunteered my time as a Salvation Army bell-ringer for a number of years now. I do this for a few reasons. First, it reminds me of when I was growing up and really puts me in the Christmas spirit. Second, I love the smiles I get from people during my shift – even those who for whatever reason don’t put any coin in the kettle. How can you not feel good about getting a steady stream of smiles? Sometimes I see people I haven’t seen in years. Or meet someone I have only previously met in conversations online. And finally, I donate my time on the kettle shifts because I don’t have a lot of money to donate. I know the Salvation Army needs bell-ringers. Without them, they cannot do

Be prepared for party season

P

ass by the OPP station in Kanata and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see dozens of white crosses on the lawn. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stark reminder that drinking and driving kills. Everyone should be prepared for the holiday season and the possibility that they may enjoy a drink or two more than usual. Anyone can head out to a gathering with the best of intentions. Then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all too easy to set aside common sense after a few drinks. Rather than trying to guess about your bloodalcohol level, have a plan to get you and your loved ones home safely and be prepared to put it into action. If you expect to drink, arrive by cab or bus so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no decision to make later. Make good friends with someone who never drinks or rotate the job of designated driver amongst the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partygoers. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hosting a party, have an extra bed, an air mattress or a couch ready for an overnight guest, and let everyone know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re welcome to stay for breakfast. Alternately, a good host can stay sober and give everyone else a ride home. For those people who fail to make a plan and find themselves far from home with a parked

car, Operation Red Nose and the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteers can get you and your car home. Call 613-820-6673 for a ride or visit rednoseottawa. com to help out. Even some tow truck companies have stepped up to offer a ride home and a tow for your car so your auto is in the driveway when you wake up. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not cheap, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far less expensive than the cost of tickets, lawyers, insurance increases and a criminal record, jail time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or worse yet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the knowledge that you have killed someone. â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Tis also the season to remind your children that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to pick them up from a party if they or their driver is impaired. You can never say it often enough. Lastly, we can look forward to light rail being built here in Ottawa. The system will be far more comfortable than riding a bus and waiting in the stations will be more comfortable especially in the winter season. If the system runs 24/7, it will be even easier to go to a party and come home merry. So travel safely this holiday season. If you choose to drink, please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive. If someone you know chooses to drink, help them make the right decision. I could just save a life.

COLUMN

Understanding Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strange driving patterns

I

was driving down Carling Avenue a few days ago when the car in front of me stopped at a green light. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hmmm,â&#x20AC;? I thought, or words not exactly like that, as I slammed on the brakes. Then we sat there, corner of Carling and Preston, watching the snow fall, until the light changed to red and, eventually, back to green. For some reason, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t honk or scream. Perhaps I was tired. But I did wonder what exactly might have been going through his mind. This is assuming he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t texting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; always a possibility in our technologically crazed world. If you were in the middle of a good text, you might need to stop at a green light so as to concentrate better on what you were typing. Ask any police officer: stranger things have happened. Probably he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t texting. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see what he was doing, or even if it was a he. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call him he, for the sake of simplicity. I concluded that he must simply have been confused. There is much to confuse drivers these days, and even more with a bunch of snow on the ground. My favourite example of confusion-causing technology is the half-stoplight. You see a few of them around town. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a promi-

The people driving north-south just see a stop sign, no light. There is probably a philosophy behind this, or maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just to save on the cost of one stoplight. Whatever the aim is, people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand it. One day I was driving east-west and stopped at the red light. But the people going north-south just sat there. Why? Probably because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the rest of us were stopped at a light. They thought it was a fourway stop, or something. So, for the longest time, nobody moved. More commonly, at the same intersection, the north-south people just go anyway even if the green light is against them. In effect,

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running a red light, even though there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one. Presumably they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a green light against them and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re treating it like a four-way stop â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially since there are so many four-way stops in town already. With a four-way stop or a real traffic light, people at least understand what is going on. With this Canadian compromise somebody is going to get hurt. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also confusion over snow tires, which are absolutely necessary but not mandatory in this jurisdiction. Kelly Egan had a good column on that in the Citizen the other day. You can forgive someone for thinking that all-weather tires are supposed to mean all-weather, particularly since no one in authority is saying you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use them in the winter. But they do make it harder to stop and maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the guy at Carling and Preston was thinking, assuming he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t texting. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watching the numbers count down on the walk/donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-walk sign and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to turn yellow pretty soon and maybe I should stop now, on the green, just to be on the safe side, especially since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snowing and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got snow tires.â&#x20AC;?

Maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it was. And by the way, if the countdown timer on the crosswalk sign is getting to him, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not alone. If you search the Internet for information on the effect of countdown timers, you can find articles that say they reduce accidents and articles saying they increase accidents. Some say they prevent pedestrians from entering intersections when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not safe to do so. Others say they make motorists speed up to beat the light. So much to think about, so little time. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best just to stop.

Energy East Pipeline will be safe and efficient To the Editor: In response to the article, Public consultations coming for Energy East Pipeline: Chiarelli, written by Joe Lofaro and published on Nov. 28 in the West Carleton Review, I would like to provide your readers with the facts about TransCanada’s proposed Energy East Pipeline. The Energy East Pipeline will be a technologically advanced pipeline. It will involve converting 3,000 kilometres of natural gas line to oil pipeline and building 1,500 kilometres of new pipeline, mainly in Quebec and New Brunswick. There will be 1,925 kilometers of converted pipeline and 104 kilometers of new pipeline, in Ontario. The advantage of this pipeline is that almost 70 per cent of it is already in the ground as the Canadian Mainline, and for the remaining 30 per cent TransCanada will, for the most part, parallel existing pipeline rights-of-way and other utility infrastructure. This will result in much less environmental and community disturbance than building an entirely new pipeline. Our construction standards are the highest in the industry, and we have an industry leading safety record to prove it. In 2012 alone, TransCanada invested $1 billion in pipeline integrity, proactive inspection and maintenance programs to protect its pipelines & energy facilities. During our more than 60 years of operation, we have earned a reputation for delivering energy safely and efficiently. TransCanada has safely and successfully converted natural gas pipelines in the past, the

most recent example being the conversion of Line One of the original Mainline for the Keystone Pipeline, which has safely delivered more than 500 million barrels of oil to the U.S. since it began operating three years ago. In the article, it is incorrectly stated that Minister Chiarelli plans “to incorporate community concerns (…) in a report that will go to the Ontario Energy Board. The OEB will then submit a report to the NEB.” To clarify, the Ontario Energy Board is mandated by the government of Ontario to submit a report to the Ministry of Energy. The Ministry will then seek intervener status at the National Energy Board. No one has a stronger interest than TransCanada does in making sure that our pipelines are designed, constructed and operated safely and reliably. The public and our

shareholders expect it because it not only makes good business sense, it is just common sense. We have seen the enormous financial costs and reputational impacts suffered by companies that are involved in oil spills and other safety incidents. Having our assets operating and delivering products that our customers require enhances our bottom line and our ability to continue building safe and reliable energy infrastructure in North America for years to come. We invite the public to obtain more information by visiting our website at www.energyeastpipeline.com, calling 1-855-895-8750.

CRISIS

The City of Ottawa has completed a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for the Carlington Heights Pump Station Site Upgrade. This project is needed to improve the reliability of water supply to about one third of the City’s distribution system, and to provide additional capacity needed to accommodate future urban growth. This project has been planned as Schedule ‘B’ projects under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (2007). The purpose of the Class EA study was to confirm project need and justification, document existing environmental conditions, examine alternatives and potential impacts, and recommend a preferred site upgrade alternative. Copies of the Carlington Heights Pump Station Site Upgrade Environmental Assessment Study Report are available for review at the following locations: City Hall Client Service Centre 110 Laurier Avenue West Ottawa, ON K1P 1J1 Tel.

How much rum & eggnog is too much? A

s the year end approaches, the festive season begins! This is also a time of year when we’re reminded not to drink and drive or to overindulge. Perhaps you already set your own limits to avoid feeling exhausted or hungover the next day, or to make sure all your memories of the office party are positive and free of regret. Do you ever have any concerns about setting those limits and sticking to them? Whether your favourite holiday drink is rum and eggnog or mulled wine – it’s recommended you drink no more than 3 drinks (for women) or 4 drinks (for men) on any single occasion. This is one of the recommendations found in the new Low Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines. They are designed to help you reduce your risk of illness or injury. You also need to know that not all drinks are equal. People tend to underestimate how much they are drinking because they don’t really know what constitutes one serving.

In order to know how much is too much, it’s helpful to make proper comparisons. Does a beer have the same amount of alcohol as a glass of wine? That depends. A standard drink is a unit that allows you to compare your beverages. The size of a standard drink depends on the percentage of alcohol in the beverage, but in general it is defined as: ÿ 341ml (12 oz.) of beer, cider or cooler, with 5% alcohol content(about a cup and a half) or ÿ 142ml (5 oz.) of wine, with 12% alcohol content ÿ 43 ml (1.5 oz.) of spirits, like rum or vodka, with 40% alcohol content There is quite a difference in the size of a standard drink depending on the type of beverage you are actually drinking. Using the guidelines can help you rethink how much is too much, for you. If you would like more information on standard drink size and setting limits, you can call the Ottawa Public Health Information Line at 613-580-6744 or visit ottawa.ca/ CheckYourDrinking You can also pick up a copy of Canada’s Low Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines at any LCBO retail outlet.

given to him, Bruce sees it as recognition not only for his efforts but for the work done by the West Carleton Family Health Team (WCFHT). It was back in 1973 that Bruce and his wife Carol started their family practice in Carp. Since that time, it has evolved and become a leader in the health team approach to health care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It (Order of Ottawa) means that locally the City of Ottawa recognizes the work not only Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done but the work of the members of the West Carleton Family Health Team,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The West Carleton Family Health Team generally thinks we have to think outside the box and get involved in the community with some degree of quality.â&#x20AC;? Bruce is officially retired from practising medicine although he admits he does fill in at the clinic in Carp when â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have a peak in demand or a drop in supply.â&#x20AC;? He now focuses on consulting and research. A recipient of many awards and accolades over the years, one of the biggest is the most recent. Last week, the Ontario Chapter of the College of Family Physicians (OCFP) awarded

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A West Carleton physician whose dedication to health and his community has earned him much recognition over the years can add the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top honour to the list. Dr. Barry Bruce was among 15 individuals to receive the Order of Ottawa Nov. 21. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am privileged to award this honour to the 2013 Order of Ottawa recipients in recognition of their outstanding contributions to our city,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Jim Watson during the ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through their professional work, these outstanding individuals

have helped to make Ottawa an even better place to live and their contributions demonstrate how one personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions can make a difference in the lives of others in our community.â&#x20AC;? Bruce was honoured to receive the award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came as a surprise and obviously a very nice surprise,â&#x20AC;? Bruce told the West Carleton Review. He was nominated for the award by West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe he is very deserving. He has done a tremendous amount of good on the medical front but also as a community person,â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry said. While the award was

As Mayor Jim Watson looks on, Dr. Barry Bruce signs on the dotted line after receiving his Order of Ottawa Nov. 21 him the Family Physician of the Year Award for the Champlain district, which covers Hawkesbury to Pembroke and includes all of Ottawa. This award takes into consideration all the dedicated work a physician with regard to their patients, colleagues and community as well as the OCFP. In 2010, the clinic he founded won the Family Practice of the Year Award. That clinic was one of the first family health team approaches to health care in Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We (WCFHT) are still held in some regard.

This is the face of change.

We are holding our own,â&#x20AC;? Bruce said. He founded The Diefenbunker Development Group and was the first president and CEO of the Diefenbunker, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cold War Mueum as well as a board member. He helped launched the Diefenbooker Classic run in support of the Ottawa Public Library branch in Carp. He is also the lead singer of the Star Tools, a physician composed 1950s-â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s rock and roll band that has raised more than $2.5 million for community charities from 1978 to present day.

Centrepointe Theatres Promises Patrons New Experiences This Anniversary Season Eyes wide with wonder. A grin erupts into a belly laugh. Joy, excitement and appreciation transform into a standing ovation—a concert of applause that can be felt from head down to toe. The team at Centrepointe Theatres have been making magical moments like this happen for 25 years and patrons of the west-end theatre can expect more unforgettable experiences this anniversary season. “We took a hard look at our numbers and listened to our patrons and we decided it was time to make some changes to our in-house programming, Centrepointe Theatres Presents, says Allan Sansom, Centrepointe Theatres’ Artistic Producer and Manager. “ We have put a real focus on ‘the family’ and we are bringing more comedy, more music and more variety to our stages than ever before.” Television sensations, the Wild Kratts kicked off the family se-

ries this fall. The shows were so popular Sansom is promising to bring them back again next season, but there is also a lot

of high quality children’s entertainment left on this season’s roster. Canadian icon Fred Penner is on the 954-seat main stage this spring and there are shows based on famous children’s books and cartoon characters including: The Snail and the Whale, Pinkalicious and Scooby-Doo! Live Musical Mysteries. This year, Centrepointe Theatres give patrons the opportunity to participate in pre-and

post-performance activities at many shows. For instance, children attending Pickalicious will have the opportunity to ‘pinkafy’ themselves at a post-performance tea party and ticket holders who purchased an ‘On Stage Pass’ for the anniversary gala starring Rick Mercer this past May got a chance to rub elbows with the CBC personality at a cocktail reception and book signing after the show.

ing Ottawa’s own Crush Improv. There is a classical music series that comes with tea and treats, a Game & Groove event for kids that features giant board games and a DJ and kick IT – a dance club for kids ages four to ten. “The first dance club was a real hit and it didn’t take long for parents to start asking for more,” says Sansom. “We had another one booked in April and due to

“Centrepointe is such an intimate venue. It’s one of our best features,” says Barbara Brunzell, Centrepointe Theatres’ Marketing and Development Specialist. “The pre-and postshow events only serve to enhance the experience.” Kids of all ages, and adults too, can enjoy the many interactive events being hosted in the Centrepointe Studio Theatre; a 199-seat, state-of-the-art, black box space that was added to the venue in 2010. There are monthly improv shows featur-

popular demand we have added a third event on January 25 as well.” Other featured shows in the 2013/2014 Centrepointe Theatres Presents include Mac

King, an illusionist who produces goldfish out of thin air; Black Violin, a musical group that fuses classical with hip hop; and big comic talent such as Jim Belushi, The Debaters, Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood from Whose Line is it Anyway? fame. CBC Dragon’s Den star and entrepreneur Arlene Dickinson makes an appearance in April and local music group The Cooper Brothers celebrate a milestone of their own in March. More than 100 events and 200 performances are held annually at Centrepointe Theatres and more than two million patrons have walked through the doors since it opened in 1988. Names such as Russell Peters, Kids in the Hall, Jeff Healey, Stuart Maclean, Rich Little and the Moscow Philharmonic have appeared at the Ottawa venue over the years. It’s always been a place where talent from around the corner and

around the globe can shine. But Centrepointe staff say they are just getting started.

Whether people are looking to interact with artists or just come and enjoy a show, Centrepointe is making sure Ottawans will be able to have extraordinary experiences that they are sure to remember for years to come. Dates and details on all the events can be found at www.centrepointetheatres. com. Can’t make up your mind? Gift certificates are also available. R0012445593-1205

Campbell, will include brush-hogging to provide 20 feet of clearance (from the centre line of the trail) on both sides. Brush-hogging will also provide clearance 100 feet wide at each of the trail’s intersections. These wedge-cuts will narrow to 40 feet at the trail. There will also be funds to repair trail signs, said Campbell. The work is being contracted out to GP Splinter of Pembroke. The grant will also supply gravel for grading and fill on the trail bridge overpass behind Thompson Trailer Park. Following the brush-hogging, volunteers will ensure that removed vegetation and branches that are not turned into sawdust will be removed from adjoining properties. A chipper can accommodate tree branches up to eight inches in diameter. The grant is “going to give us a cleaner and more open trail, and increased safety for users,” said Campbell. By cleaning up the trail, perhaps the township can also consider using the venue for scheduled recreational activities, he added. During summer months, large cement blocks prevent vehicle access to the trail, but Campbell said a second grant application will be made to fund lighter-weight gates. The concern has been expressed that those unfamiliar with the area may not see these concrete slabs if driving in poorer lighting conditions, before or after the snowmobile season.

Ontario Trillium Foundation. Built to protect the Canadian government from nuclear attack, the oncesecret Diefenbunker in Carp will be the venue for a unique new program targeting at risk youth. Museum officials are thrilled with the news. “The Diefenbunker is a very unique place,” said Heather Montgomery, Diefenbunker education and volunteer manager. “We have been focused on being able to offer these kinds of workshops for some time. We’re really focused on education programs here.” The museum was awarded $34,700 to support the development and delivery of conflict resolution workshops in order to build problem-solving and conflict resolution skills and leadership abilities of

Ottawa area children and youth. Using examples from the diplomatic efforts of the Cold War, up to 600 students in grades 3 to 12 will take on key roles of government in a simulated nuclear disaster scenario. At this time, the museum will target at-risk youth in particular, said Montgomery. The scenarios that will be used were designed by Emergency Preparedness Canada in the 1980s during the Cold War to train Canada’s top government officials. Students will be designated roles – one will act as prime minister, one as deputy, another as head of emergency preparedness and other vital government roles. “They’ll look at things like ‘Do we evacuate, do we close the border, how do we get the word out?’”

SUBMITTED

Students will soon have a unique opportunity to hone their conflict resolution skills, courtesy of the Diefenbunker. she said. The program will take a three-step approach. First, Diefenbunker officials will visit students in their classroom to go over the conflict resolution skills and proper terminology. Next, students will tour the museum and familiarize themselves with the facility. Then it’s time to put the scenarios in place through interactive workshops and for the students to get to work. A promotion for the

workshops underscore the importance of the workshops. “For the first time, we are faced with a generation of students who did not live through the Cold War. As Canada’s Cold War Museum, it is our job to teach youth the lessons of the Cold War. They are lessons in civil courage, in diplomacy and in conflict resolution. These lessons, in turn, can give at-risk youth valuable life skills. They can learn for their future,

from the past.” Even students who don’t like museums or history might be more apt to connect with the relatively modern-day Cold War conflict. “The Cold War is unlike any other conflict,” said Montgomery. “It really allows a springboard for learning these skills.” The Trillium funds will mostly be used for transportation to the facility. The workshops will run as a pilot project in 2014.

The biggest concern for winter driving is speed, maintains the OPP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please slow down.â&#x20AC;? Speed too fast for road conditions is the number

one cause of winter collisions.â&#x20AC;? The OPP shared the following safety tips: install four winter-rated tires; keep all windows and lights clear of snow; give yourself more time to get to your destination in foul weather; leave extra space between yourself and the other vehicles.

ALMONTE PARADE The Almonte Santa Claus Parade will once again be held at its new evening time this year, making it the second annual night parade in its history. Starting at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, after it is dark enough for the lights on each float to shine and twinkle, Mill Street will come alive with festive sights and music. “We got a lot of good feedback about the night parade,” MacLaren said. “People seemed to really enjoy that is was different from the Pakenham parade, since a lot of people attend

Everyone is invited back to the Almonte Community Centre after the parade for a free skate, hot chocolate and hot dogs, which will be provided by the Almonte Lion’s Club. Each float or walking group that participates in either parade will receive a number and will be judged to win prizes in two categories: best overall and best use of theme. Winners in each category get a trophy. “Both parades are a lot of fun,” said MacLaren. “We hope to see a lot of people come out this year.”

Community – Just as the song promises, Santa Claus is coming to town. Actually, he’ll be in Mississippi Mills several times this year and he’ll be participating in the town’s two Santa Claus parades. Mississippi Mills is hosting its usual two annual Christmas parades again this year: one in Pakenham on Saturday, Dec. 7 and one in Almonte on Sunday, Dec. 8. Santa will form part of the finale of each parade, both of which have a White Christmas theme this year. “The two parades work together,” said community economic and cultural co-ordinator Tiffany MacLaren. “We use the same theme for each because a lot of people participate in both parades.” The White Christmas theme is exactly what it sounds like: MacLaren says the town encourages parade participants to embrace the theme and use a lot of bright, twinkling lights. “We thought it would be a good theme for this year,” she said. “Who doesn’t want to have a white Christmas?” The Pakenham Santa Claus Parade, which MacLaren says has been around as long as anyone can remember, will be much the same as the traditional parade everyone has come to know and love. “It doesn’t change much from year to year,” she said. “Why change something that works so well?” The parade starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7 and leaves from the Stewart Community Centre, as always. The parade follows a route that consists mainly of the main street: County Road 29. “That’s where people normally gather to watch,” MacLaren said. “They’ll be able to see the whole parade from there.” The parade in Pakenham is traditionally includes 20 to 30 floats each year. People wishing to participate in the parade do not need to register ahead of time; MacLaren only asks that floats gather at the community centre an hour or two beforehand to get in line. “We have businesses who make floats, and locals who walk in the parade. Everyone and anyone can participate if they want to,” MacLaren said. During the parade, the Pakenham Civitan Club will be collecting donations for the Lanark County Food Bank. After all the floats and walking groups have had a chance to march down the route, everyone – viewers and parade participants – is invited to the Stewart Community Centre for a free skate,

both.” The Almonte parade leaves from the Almonte Community Centre and heads down Bridge Street to Mill Street. Most people line the sidewalks of Mill Street, where they can take in the whole line of floats as it makes its way down the hill. More than 40 floats joined the first night parade last year, over three times more than usually participated in the daytime parade, and MacLaren said they did a great job lighting up the street. “Part of the reason why we chose the White Christmas theme for this year is because we thought it would look pretty with all of the lights in the night parade,” MacLaren said. “We’re hoping even more people will light up their

Toronto to dump garbage in new Ottawa sites: opposition group Derek Dunn

R0012405473

derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – Ottawa: Garbage dump capital of Canada. It probably won’t be in the next tourism marketing drive, but that hasn’t stopped an antilandfill group from releasing a study that shows Ottawa is Canada’s “dump capital”. The study conducted by the community-based campaign Don’t Let Ottawa Go To Waste shows the city with four garbage dumps in its boundaries, twice as many as any provincial capital in Canada. It also shows the city will likely become a net importer of garbage, likely from Toronto and its surrounding municipalities. Ottawa disposes of about 675,000 tonnes of garbage each year. The province has approved an annual landfill capacity of over one million tonnes, far exceeding local needs and expected rates of growth, according to Don’t Let Ottawa Go To Waste’s Harold Moore. “We did the study to clear up two misconceptions,” Moore said. “We know we had four landfills operating until 2011; now three operating, with two proposals on the table. I know we had a fair amount, but I was surprised others got along so well without them. And two: When they say it costs too much to haul garbage here, that’s not true. The industry trend is to large, regional landfills.” Moore is from West Carleton, home to what could soon be a mega-landfill at Waste Management’s Carp Road site. In the east end of the city, Taggart Miller Corporation wants to build another mega dump at Boundary Road and Highway 417. If so, the one million ton annual capacity

Donna Nych Broker COLDWELL BANKER VALLEY WIDE REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE

would jump to two million. Moore worries about health related issues and a drastic decrease in property values leading to a jump in property taxes to cover the devaluing and necessary infrastructure costs associated with the projects. “Since the majority of Ontario’s ICI (industrial, commercial and institutional) waste isn’t recycled, it will go where there is cheap, available disposal capacity and that’s here in Ottawa. We need to ask our city officials and the provincial government why is Ottawa now responsible for taking other peoples’ garbage?” Moore said. “It is clear that both Waste Management of Canada and Taggart Miller Corporation have worked very hard to keep their plans to import garbage as quiet as possible.” The provincial government shocked many in Ottawa a few months ago when it approved Waste Management’s proposal without an conditions recommended by city council or numerous detractors who submitted opinions or attended the many pubic meetings. “The local people aren’t being listened to because of the wishes of a corporation,” he said. “A lot of people have given up trying to be heard. They just wear down the community, that’s one of this corporation’s strategies. They have lobbyists in Toronto meeting all the time with MPPs and bureaucrats and we don’t even know the right person in the ministry to talk to.” He said corporations also have plenty of money to offer all three parties. But when regular people stand up to fight back against corporations and government, they are dismissed by other regular people as nimbies.

For this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of My Fair Lady, director Marybeth Pidgeon promises a fresh take on a classic musical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fortunate to have such great support from the community that we can bring a wide variety of musicals to the stage,â&#x20AC;? says Pidgeon, who directed the Two Rivers production of Fiddler on the Roof in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While Wizard is pure magic and fantasy, My Fair Lady explores the very real dynamics of society and how we can limit one another â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a truly character-driven story that is both touching and very funny.â&#x20AC;? Based on George Bernard Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, the musical transports us back to Edwardian London to tell the story of Cockney flower

girl Eliza Doolittle, who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins so she can break free from the confines of her lower class station. Often called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the perfect musical,â&#x20AC;? My Fair Lady debuted on Broadway in 1956 and was followed by a hit London production, a popular film and numerous revivals. Lisa Webber, back for her fourth year as musical director, thinks audiences will love the way the characters come to life through song in this production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The musical numbers in My Fair Lady really drive the storytelling,â&#x20AC;? says Webber, who recently ran a Broadway 101 workshop to help people develop their singing, dancing and acting skills on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the songs are part of the fabric of the story and the characters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eliza singing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I Could Have Danced All Nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or her father belting out â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get Me to the Church on Time,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Webber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a lot of great moments for talented performers to shine in this production!â&#x20AC;? My Fair Lady auditions will be held on Jan. 5 and 8, 2014, with callbacks on Jan. 12. Roles are open to anyone in Grade 9 up to adults of all ages. The audition application form and open production positions are posted now. For details, visit www.tworiversmusicals.ca

Recycling was in style during Depression long before it became a trend Lifestyle - “Have you got them on yet?” I was talking to my little friend Velma on the next farm. She didn’t have to ask what I was talking about. I had already asked the same question of Joyce. She didn’t have to ask me what I was asking about either. They both knew I was referring to the dreaded navy blue fleece lined bloomers! As soon as there was a bite in the air, out came the bloomers. Now, I had to admit, they certainly kept out the drafts over our flourbag underwear, and once winter had really set in, off came the flourbags and on went the long johns. So our bottoms were well protected when the snow came.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Very few of us wore slacks during school hours. Sometimes we put on melton cloth pants that tucked into our galoshes, and wore them on the three-and-a-half-mile trek, but they were taken off when we got to school, and hung in the cloak room at the back. Miss Crosby frowned on girls in pants in the

Riverside South Elevated Water Storage Tank Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Notice of Study Commencement The City of Ottawa is commencing a study to identify a preferred site for an elevated water storage tank to service the Riverside South area. The tank, which is identified in the City’s Infrastructure Master Plan, is expected to be required to supplement the supply of water under future peak demand conditions. The project is being planned as a Schedule ‘B’ project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, 2007, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. The EA Study will investigate the project need and justification, examine existing environmental conditions, evaluate alternatives and potential impacts, and recommend mitigation measures. At the completion of the study, a Class Environmental Assessment Report which documents the process will be prepared and placed on the public record for public and agency review.

‘30s. But just about every girl at the Northcote School wore navy blue fleece lined bloomers. Well, all except bad Marguirite, who thought they were, as she called them, ugly and not “girl-like,” her exact words! Joyce, who was very inquisitive, was determined she would find out what Marguirite wore to keep warm if she didn’t wear the blue bloomers. And one day she “accidentally” tripped her when we were lining up at the door after Miss Crosby rang the bell, and Marguirite went backside over tea-kettle and fell off the step, exposing everything she owned to the entire Northcote School. Well, she hadn’t lied about the blue bloomers. She had on bloomers as white as the driven snow, and Joyce who was closest to her at the fall, said they had fine purple lines through them. She got a real good look, did Joyce. They must have been bought at Walker’s Store in Renfrew, and not from Eaton’s catalogue where ours came from. And so this time of year,

There is an opportunity at any time during the EA process for interested persons to provide comments. Any comments received pertaining to the study will be collected under the Environmental Assessment Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.

you could count on the rest of the girls at the Northcote School wearing the exact same underwear. Early in the Fall, Mother would have ordered at least one new pair from Eaton’s catalogue when she sent in her winter order. But they wouldn’t be worn early in the season. They would be saved for much later. Much later came when the old bloomers had faded to a light purple and a few holes started to appear. This happened from many slidings down the snow that was piled over the back fence at the Northcote School, just in front of the outdoor rink. The boys in Senior Fourth would have built the snow slide and doused it with pails of water from the pump, and when they were finished and it had frozen solid, it provided many recess hours of sliding down on our backsides. Of course, the bloomers took the full brunt of the icy slide, and it didn’t take long for the navy blue dye to fade. And many was the day, after recess was over, we went back into the school, and sat on wet bottoms until it was time to go home at

four o’clock. GOING TO CHURCH DAY

But it didn’t matter how faded the bloomers became; the new ones were kept for special occasions. Special occasions meant going to church, or visiting neighbours for the Saturday night house parties. And on Christmas morning, I was allowed to wear the new bloomers, because after all, it was also ‘going to church day’ too. The bloomers had elastic legs. But the elastic was never taut enough to hold up our beige ribbed stockings. And so we still had to wear tight elastic bands for that purpose. Of course, we could pull the legs of the bloomers down to cover the bands, and when we undressed at night before going to bed, it wasn’t unusual to have deep furrows in our legs where the elastic was worn all day! And when I got into bed at night, beside my sister Audrey, I would still be scratching the dents in my legs until Audrey would slap me on my back and tell me to “cut it out, you’re driving me crazy with all that scratching.” By mid-winter, the navy blue bloomers, from the wear and tear they got, and the many washings with home-made lye soap, would spring a hole, usually around the elastic legs or on the elastic waist band. That’s when I would lament to Mother that the bloomers were done for. And even when mending them with navy thread failed to make them presentable, they would be deemed unwearable, much to my delight. They took on many other lives. Now, I would get the brand new bloomers that had been tucked away since early Fall. And I was glad to see the last of the old faded ones. But that wasn’t to be the end of the old bloomers. Oh no, they were put to another use by Mother. The elastic was taken out of the legs and waist, and put in the sewing basket. The bloomers were sliced open and cut into at least two pieces. Then they were tucked into the rag bag, and used for dusting, wiping up spills, and, of course, they were ideal for scrubbing the floors every Saturday. Like everything else back in the those Depression years, the bloomers were ‘recycled’ decades before the term was ever heard of!

Carefor clients to benefit from Holly Jolly Radiothon Community - This year 98.7FM Valley Heritage Radio will be hosting its annual Holly Jolly Radiothon on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10 to 2 p.m. All proceeds from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radiothon go to Carefor Health & Community Services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; earmarked for the Champlain Community Transportation Coalition of Renfrew County. These eight Community Support Agencies provide transportation for seniors and adults with disabilities to attend medical appointments. These agencies cover the areas of Arnprior, Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay, Cal-

abogie, Deep River, Eganville, Golden Lake, Pembroke and Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very pleased to have Carefor as the recipient of the funding from Holly Jolly this year,â&#x20AC;? said station manager Jason Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost of transportation can be very high â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially in Renfrew County, simple because of geography. All of the funds raised at the radiothon will be earmarked to offset the costs of getting people to their medical appointments. Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health should not be at risk because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford

transportation to a necessary appointment. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a price on someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health and well being.â&#x20AC;? In three years, the Holly Jolly Radiothon has raised just under $40,000 for local charities, thanks to the generous support of the people of the Ottawa Valley, said Marshall. Ontario Power Generation will return this year as a major Community Sponsor for the radiothon. The Holly Jolly Radiothon begins at 10 a.m. with hosts Dai Bassett and Art Jamieson on the air, accepting pledges.

Union, administration debate Arnprior hospital bed numbers John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – The union representing staff at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital is calling on the administration to keep open six acute care beds that have been primarily closed since June. The 110-member CUPE local 2198, with support from the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions, made the plea Monday at a press conference in Arnprior and a news release. They will try to drive home their point with a march and rally in Arnprior Tuesday, Dec. 10.

However, Arnprior Regional Health CEO Eric Hanna says that with a tight budget the hospital has to ensure funds are being allocated to maximum efficiency and sometimes that isn’t keeping beds open that are not being used very often. He pointed out that initiatives implemented by the hospital have helped lower the average length of stay by patients, meaning not as many beds are needed. The number of patient days at the Arnprior hospital has dropped from 1,700 to less than 800 in the last three years. “We’ve taken dollars that used to staff beds and put them into new programs and services,”

Michael Hurley, left, president of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions, and Patrick Garbutt, president of CUPE local 2198 at the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital, are asking why ADMH is not using six acute care beds when the community is growing and the aging population is putting more pressures on the health care system. They held a press conference in Arnprior Monday to share their concerns. he said. “We’ve reallocated dollars where there is a demand.” Hanna noted that three years ago 12 per cent of patients returned to hospital, but now it’s

less than three per cent, so the programs are working, he said. See BEDS, page 29

Beds and services must remain open and local, says union Continued from page 28

However, CUPE 2198 president Patrick Garbutt said it doesn’t make sense to close any of the hospital’s 30 acute care beds in a fast-growing community such as Arnprior. Furthermore, the beds will be needed as the baby boomers grow older and put more stress on the system, he said, adding that nurses are already almost at the breaking point. The beds are available, but aren’t being used because the hospital is choosing not to staff them, he explained. He said there will always be fluctuating patient numbers in the hospital, but the beds shouldn’t be shunned because the figures dip occasionally. Hanna responded by saying that the beds can be put back in operation if the hospital deems it necessary, but at the moment feels the money can be spent better in other areas. At the CUPE press conference, Garbutt and Ontario Council of Hospital Unions president Michael Hurley raised the spectre of patients having to spend time in the overload area of the emergency department, being shipped to Ottawa hospitals if the beds are used or being sent home prematurely. “Patients are being held the emergency room where they may have been transferred to the floor because the hospital did not staff six available beds in acute care,” said Garbutt. “We believe that the beds are needed and should be re-opened and staffed permanently.” He said that over the last several summers bed closures in Arnprior have extended from 15 to 17 weeks and this year it appears it will be much longer and possibly be permanent. “We have to draw the line on this. With a

community whose population is growing faster than the national average, we need these beds today, tomorrow and well into the future,” said Garbutt. He noted that the Arnprior hospital used to have a men’s and women’s floor, but no longer. “We taken a lot of chopping,” he said. “When people are recovering in their own community, they have the support of family and friends that promotes a faster recovery. Isolate them from that support structure and there is a barrier to speedy recovery. “We must keep these beds and services open and local - this by definition is patient centered care.” He agrees that hospitals have it tough because their budgets have been frozen as a result of a five-year funding freeze introduced by the Liberals and supported by the Progressive Conservative party and the NDP. Hurley said he is worried that the provincial government is slowly moving toward centralizing more and more health care procedures in larger hospitals. “We see downsizing of the rural hospitals around Ottawa,” he said. The increasingly long closures of beds at the Arnprior and District Hospital is one example, he said, noting that the uncertainty over whether the beds will ever open again is upsetting when there is a 98 per cent occupancy rate for acute care beds. Ontario already has the fewest acute care beds per capita of any province and developed country, he said. “We’re the most efficient now, so why are we cutting back,” he asked. He pointed out Ontario residents pay a health tax, so deserve to have services close to home. “We believe that patients are being redirect-

ed to Ottawa for treatments that they should receive in their community. We are afraid that smaller community hospitals, including Arnprior and District, are being deliberately downsized, phased down and phased out.” While agreeing that Arnprior Regional Health is on a tight budget, Hanna maintained that it has made strides in improving health care services with some innovative policies and programs. He disagreed that rural hospitals in Ontario

are in danger of being phased out. While the hospital budgets have been frozen, small hospitals did get a one per cent increase in the 2013-14, he said, along with extra allocations for special projects that are leading to efficiencies, he noted. “They (government) want people to get services in communities where they live, so they won’t be getting rid of small hospitals,” he said. “They won’t be closing hospitals … but changing them, yes.”

The Ottawa Valley Garden and Tractor Pulling Club held its banquet in Carp Nov. 22. Many sponsors contributed to the banquet and many awards were handed out including to children, groups over 16 years of age, an adult category and several horsepower categories. The kids all drove garden tractors of varying horsepower in a series of tractor pulls around the Ottawa Valley (Carp, Richmond, Arnprior, Perth etc). They learned to drive, how to maintain their tractors, how to compete at a pulling event and how to exhibit exemplary sportsmanship. Pictured are the youngest group of competitors. They are (back row from left) Matthew Skebo, Isaiah Skebo, Daniel Atherfold, Grace Nesbitt, Dawson Budau, Grant Ziebarth, Nick Ranger, Harland Robertson, and Owen Neill and (front row from left) Jordan Atherfold, Liam Kennedy, Darren McCord, Wyatt Paul and Wyatt, Wyatt Kilpatrick and Jackson Skebo.

Winter of the Waxwing? Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

Lifestyle - Winter’s chilled fingers have grabbed hold of our region early this year. Most open water is now coated with ice and fields hidden by snow. With wintry conditions comes a general lack of birds, but not all of our feathered friends have vanished. In addition to hardy regulars such as Black-capped Chickadees and Downy Woodpeckers, a few other species are lingering behind. Earlier this fall the abundance of fruit on Buckthorn, Junipers, Mountain-Ash, and other trees and shrubs had me predict that it would be a good winter for fruit-eating birds. That certainly has proven to be the case. American Robins are still lingering, and more frequently flocks of Cedar Waxwings are being seen drifting through the trees and feasting on the sugar-rich bounty. Cedar Waxwings are among our most beautiful birds. Their plumage is best described as “sleek.” Their upperparts bear warm brown feathers set against a soft yellow breast. The wings are slate gray as are the lower back and tail. And they sport nifty accents: the head bears a tidy crest; the face, a striking black mask; and the tail, a crisp yellow band at its tip. If the bird is two years old or older, a few wing feathers sport bright red adornments whose waxy appearance gave rise to the species name. Waxwings are well equipped for a diet of fruit. Their mouth opening – the gape – is large for a bird of their size. This allows them to swallow fruit as large as cherries in one quick gulp. Waxwings have short intestines, a feature that has been suggested to allow them to process fruit internally more quickly. Because fruit is rich in carbohydrates but not many other nutrients, waxwings need to eat a lot of fruit each day. Faster processing of berries and other fruit helps facilitate this.

MICHAEL RUNTZ

This Cedar Waxwing was one of 45 that visited the author’s backyard recently.

In some winters another species of waxwing can be seen. Bohemian Waxwing can arrive in the thousands when winter fruit in northwestern North American is scarce. They can be easily told from Cedar Waxwings by their larger size, gray bellies, a rusty red patch under their tails (white in Cedars), and, in addition to red, white and yellow markings on their wings. Bohemians will sometimes mingle with their southern cousins, so be sure to take a closer look at any flock of waxwings you encounter this winter. Occasionally waxwings come across fruit that has fermented and sometimes these lovely birds become intoxicated! Unfortunately, this occasionally ends badly for the drunken birds: there are records of impaired waxwings falling off branches and dying on the ground. If you have fruit trees in your backyard, you might expect a visit from some of A groundbreaking film the best-dressed illustrating the power diners in town. of educating girls Just make sure to change the world. you limit their alcohol intake; drinking and flying don’t mix! With the Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count rapidly approaching, reports of waxwings or birds coming to your feeders are appreciated.

Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report

A TIME FOR GIVING By Jim Watson The days have gotten shorter and the weather colder and that means the holiday season is right around the corner. This, like every year, we are fortunate to call Ottawa home and there is much to be thankful for. But while many will celebrate the holidays with lavish meals and presents, others are at risk of going without a warm meal, let alone a gift. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents always give generously to those in need and I encourage you to keep doing so during the holiday season. PHOTOS BY BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

If you would like to offer donations of food, gifts, or your time, here are just a few of the many organizations that could use your help:

Downtown, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a parade The annual Christmas parade was held downtown Ottawa on Nov. 23. As the parade started, so did the well timed snow, covering floats and firefighters.

COMMUNITY Busy as a beekeeper

Business Directory

THURSDAY DECEMBER 5, 2013

Arnold Polk and his bees follow similar flights: simple needs, hard work, and timeless truths Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

R0012447631

Lifestyle – From the rustic farmhouse with its long and weathered driveway, cars are heard rushing along County Road 29 between Arnprior and Pakenham. They sound like ocean waves crashing against rocks. In what could pass for a courtyard between the house and a bundle of young evergreens and a massive grey barn, a tabby kitten chases a dried leaf in the autumn breeze. The tiny feline’s universe is contained in a grain of sand that is Arnold Polk’s property. All farms are like this: the sense of a self-contained world, like a snow-globe or bee colony; harmonious interdependence that builds to a harvest. Polk has always enjoyed observing the world created by bees in the wooden boxes on his farm. The white boxes are plopped on the grass like dressers brought outside for a yard sale. Even as a young man when the farm belonged to his father-in-law Donald Caldwell, Polk like to stroll over and take a look. He and Marion would come from the Toronto area; Polk would watch the bees and the beekeeper at work. “We’d come to have a visit on weekends. I’d watch them coming and going,” Polk said. “It’s interesting to see their own little world.” His young family wasn’t settled

well. The house in Ajax was a nice one. But when the next inevitable recession hit how long before the salesmen were cut loose? They were told the farm was theirs if they wanted it. It housed 2,500 hens in the 1960s, hence the buildings. Maybe the jet setting life of big money and endless hours at work – busy as a bee wasn’t the meaning of life. His life, at least. “People didn’t want as much back then,” he said. “It’s not like today.” Four years later they packed everything up and moved here, on March 15, to Caldwell’s delight.

Still, there are good years and bad years. Both are largely out of his control. A brutal winter with strong winds; invasive species from other continents; now the threat of pesticides: all can have dramatic effects on honey production. He lost 80 per cent last year to a verolla mite infestation. The treatment was too diluted. He has jarred him. “The mite levels were a lot higher than I anticipated,” he said. “I’m in semiretirement and to look after them is a very labour intensive process. “I’ve had a good run.” The bees could be growing tired too. They fly over acres upon acres of corn and soya fields, likely breathing in chemical-laced dust, to pollinate fewer and fewer flowers.

Polk would eventually drive a school bus for many years. Marion’s steady income as a nurse in Almonte would be their foundation. “We thought we were going to do it all.” Polk’s easy going demeanour, his strong health, his successful children, his embracing of new things – “I’ve recently discovered golf” – all point to a life well lived. With few regrets he is slowing down. In late October boxes were placed over the 20 or so bee colonies. The 75,000 bees in SWEET BUSINESS frames cluster into a ball for warmth.

OMB reform not on the table in land-use consultation Province seeks feedback on how to foster better collaboration between communities, developers, cities Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

IDEAS

Much of the conversations had by small working groups at the consultation centered on public education and engagement in the land-use planning process – before specific development proposals become contentious. Paul Moreau, the director of property and development for the Country LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND of Renfrew, said citizens Linda Jeffrey, minister of municipal affairs and housing, need to get engaged in participants in a province-led consultation on land-use land-use issues. planning at Carleton University on Nov. 21. “I think that’s where the system falls down,” he be charged to homebuilders and new home said. “(Residents) need to understand why buyers to help pay for infrastructure needed they are getting that notice … The light bulb doesn’t go off. If they know what it means, to service the new residences. But the consultations will not look at they will become more engaged.”

Others, including Tom McVeigh, president of the Centretown Citizens Community Association, pointed out that community groups sense many consultations seem to have a predetermined outcome and their comments won’t make a difference. Jim Sova of Loyalist Township said the province needs to find a way to compensate for the relative advantage developers have over citizens because the corporations understand how the process works – or can hire people who do. “Community time is different than project time,” Ottawa resident Martin Canning offered, in the same vein. That mirrored what Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi has heard from his constituents, including during a consultation he held last year to get feedback and idea for potentially reforming the OMB. “I think you’ll end up with a happier population because they’re knowledgeable and they’re educated about the land-use planning process and they’re not intimidated by it,” she said. See OMB, Page 40 R0012416959

News - Abolishing the Ontario Municipal Board is not on the table during provincewide consultations on land-use planning, according to the minister of municipal affairs. The province may also looking to tighten up requirements for how municipalities plan the use of land within their boundaries, but additional funding to accomplish that won’t be forthcoming, Minister Linda Jeffrey said during a Nov. 21 consultation held at Carleton University. “At the end of the day, this is their job. It’s their job to keep their land-use plans up to date and to reflect community values,” said Linda Jeffrey, minister of municipal affairs and housing. “It really is about a priority setting of a municipal council,” she said, adding that many Ontario municipalities do keep their plans up to date. Improving land-use planning doesn’t have to be expensive, Jeffrey said. “It’s part of the regular conversation you have on land-use planning all the time across Ontario and I think if you just set it as a priority and you put the work in at the front end, you end up paying less and you’ll save on legal fees,” she said. The city might be cheered by what is on the table: potential changes to “accountability and transparency measures” for development charges: the amount of money that can

OMB dissolution won’t solve issues: Naqvi Continued from Page 39

but no similar pre-consultation is required with neighbouring residents. Developers also took part in the consultation on Nov. 21. Prominent local lawyer Alan Cohen said the city and communities’ portrayals of developers as “evil” are not productive. John Herbert, president of the Greater Ottawa Homebuilders Association, said fostering a better public understanding of how the landuse planning system works would help reduce that strife.

“I want people to feel comfortable about understanding the process and participating.” That should extend to applications for individual developments, too, Naqvi said. “We need to make sure there is robust discussion between the developer and the local neighbours,” he said. Judy Flavin, an Ottawa city planner who participated in the sessions, shared a similar view. She pointed out that the province requires municipal planners like her to pre-consult with developers before they submit an application,

ONTARIO MUNICIPAL BOARD

Feedback on what to do with the Ontario Municipal Board wasn’t as cut-and-dry, Naqvi said. “There was a very clear consensus in that community dialog that abolishing OMB is not going to solve the problem,” Naqvi said of his consultation held last year. “Just getting rid of the OMB is not going to solve the problem because you’re going to end up in front of the courts, which takes longer and is more costly to communities.” Participants in Naqvi’s sessions favoured retaining some type of expert panel, whether at the local or provincial level, would still be needed to adjudicate disputes, he said. Files from Ottawa comprised nine per cent of the OMB’s caseload in 2011-12 – a total of 137 files. Herbert said the homebuilders’ association would like to see disputes over minor zoning variances – which make up 38 per cent of the files the OMB processes – considered by a different body. The board’s rulings should be restricted to high-level policy documents, Herbert said. A number of other participants agreed on fur-

ther possible restrictions to what cases should be allowed to be appealed to the OMB. Appealing entire official plans (instead of picking out the offending part) should be banned, some participants said. Others argued there should be higher fees for developers who want to appeal to the board. Karen Wright from the Civic Hospital Community Association said that wouldn’t make much of a difference because the appeal fee is a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of hiring experts to make the community’s case to the board. “Do you know how many umpteen bake sales it takes for the community?” Naqvi commented. “For developers it’s the cost of doing business.” It’s too early to say what any changes to planning, development charges or even the OMB might look like, Jeffrey said. Consultations began on Nov. 7 and will continue until Dec. 9. “Obviously I am not going to speculate as to what will be the outcome because I really want to hear what people have to say, but I would say there is a real appetite to talk about what the OMB – what it can consider,” Jeffrey said.

Carp Ridge artist featured in Kanata Civic Art Gallery exhibit Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Arts - The newest exhibition at the Kanata Civic Art Gallery is a cause for celebration. The show, titled “Celebrate!” runs until the New Year and features Carp Ridge artist Karl Kischel, who’s received numerous awards for his work. Kischel uses his paintings to celebrate the natural environment, which he’s fond of painting. He has several landscapes – captured in every season – hanging in his rural home, which sits atop the Carp Ridge. “I just love nature and to give to people – that gift of art,” he said. “Just the spirit of it; I find it’s my family, my religion. Whether it’s an animal or a tree, I just feel close to it. “The spirit I connect with comes out (in the paintings). People love it, they enjoy it.” Many of his works feature hidden imagery of aboriginal faces and silhouettes among the rocks, trees and leaves. One even has an image of Kischel and his wife, who have been married for 24 years, locked in an embrace. “I don’t plan them. I have no explanation for it, that’s just what happens to me,” said Kischel, who has aboriginal blood in his lineage. “You put the paint on quickly but these things always turn up.” His landscapes are painted with a life-like quality, creating vibrant scenes such as waterfalls rushing over rocks. Kischel will have a number of works on display at the gallery show, including paintings of the Ottawa Valley, Carp Ridge, Madawaska and the East Coast, as well as images of heritage buildings, he said. INSPIRATION

Kischel, who comes from an air force family, was born in Whitehorse, Yukon and has lived in various parts of Canada as well as in France and Germany, before he settled in West Carleton. He finds inspiration for his paintings in his backyard, on canoe trips through Algonquin Park and skiing in the Gatineau Hills, he said. A trip to the east coast this past fall provided the ideas for a number of new works.

Kischel, who just celebrated his 60th birthday, first picked up a paint brush when he was 11 years old. Family friends who were art dealers from Paris took to his work. “Around that age I did a painting of a ring-necked pheasant flying through a green field,” he said, adding the art dealers took him under their wing. “I guess they saw my talent.”

He started painting in oils, then moved to watercolours, and most recently Kischel’s been using acrylics for the past four years. “It can be transparent like watercolours or it can be thick and (you) use a palette knife on it like oil,” he said about his favourite medium. “The luminosity of it can be quite striking.” He often will take a set of photo-

New Algonquin dean promises long-term leadership solutions DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The new dean at Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Perth campus has the distinction of beating Daniel Alfredsson, and waging a friendly Twitter war with Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson. All in a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work for Dave Donaldson, a West Carleton resident who, until a few weeks ago, was the dean of the school of business at Algonquinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main Ottawa campus. Donaldson beat the former Ottawa Senators captain not on the ice, but when he went up against the Swede and Watson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and beat both men â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the Community Booster award at the Best Ottawa Business Awards

on Thursday, Nov. 21. Surveying his new Perth office the next afternoon, Donaldson smiled and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my empire! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve told people they do not have to genuflect.â&#x20AC;? Donaldsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival comes at a time when the Perth campus said goodbye to Shelley Carter-Rose, whom many had expected to serve for a longer period, and put an end to a string of short-term deans. It is on this matter that Donaldson wants to stress his commitment to the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an acting dean,â&#x20AC;? he said, pointing to his new business cards, and his new name tag. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an interim dean. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the dean. People shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another short-term dean. I am here to help out as best I can.â&#x20AC;?

R0012448430

One of the ways he will be doing that is by working on getting more permanent leadership at the top, looking at â&#x20AC;&#x153;what qualities a dean should have here, so that it gets the dean it deserves,â&#x20AC;? to address the high turnover. Donaldson said he has already taken to Perth, calling it an â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazing place. I am really getting to know Perth.â&#x20AC;? He has also been glad to see how devoted the staff is to the college and community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are part of it; they believe in it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do any business with people who just walk through.â&#x20AC;? Donaldson is used to moving around and adapting quickly to new situations. He was born and raised in the blue collar, working class Montreal neighbourhood of Verdun.

He attended McGill University where he took a B.A. in education, with a major in history and a minor in math. Later in life, he got his MBA from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C. His parents moved to Midland, Ont. during his first year of university, and he later worked as a tour guide at the shrine of St. Marie among the Hurons. He then worked at what is now called Discovery Bay near Penetanguishene, Ont. He will have been married 40 years in June and has two children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a son, aged 21, who will be returning to university for his Bachelor of Arts in history, and a daughter, 18, who is studying hospitality management. For several years he worked in Vancouver, with Procter and Gamble and the forerunner to Telus, Microtel. He began teaching part-time in 1991 at Vancouver Community College, instructing students in math, marketing, business, law, statistics and organizational behaviour. In time, he worked his way up from coordinator to associate dean to dean of the business, hospitality, auto trades, business and music department at the community college, in 2001. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really realized the power of education,â&#x20AC;? said Donaldson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always been in the college system since.â&#x20AC;? One aspect of higher education that he says thrills him the most is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we consistently change peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives,â&#x20AC;? whether it is putting a high school graduate on the right path, or helping someone improve their lives through training for a second career. But it is not only the student who is helped, but the community as well. See PERTH, Page 43

Perth campus dean hails from West Carleton Continued from Page 42

“We are responding to what the community needs,” said Donaldson. “We work magic here every day.” He lived on the west coast until 2007, and returned east for several reasons, not the least of which was to be closer to his aging parents, who still lived in Midland. He wanted to re-connect with them and his then-teenaged children wanted to get closer to their roots as well. He landed a job at Algonquin College as the dean of the business program. Coming from more “strictly academic areas,” being mainly concerned with the business school, he now has a whole campus to look after. “It is challenging,” he admits. “(But) it is a new opportunity. I’ve enough skill sets to change things… but at the same time, I’m learning.” NEW COURSES

The Perth campus was already in the midst

of selecting and approving new courses for September 2014, and they are in the middle of what Donaldson calls “market intelligence.” The campus is looking at three new courses, and possibly a fourth, with one in hospitality, and the remainder in business. “We have a number of courses I am sure will fly,” said Donaldson. “We know what we want to offer. We just need to make sure that there is a demand for it,” and jobs to go with it after graduation. He has already met with Perth’s chief administrative officer, John de Rosenroll, to introduce himself, and to ask pertinent questions such as “where are the gaps? “What does the community need that we don’t offer?” Another challenge for the campus will be promoting programs, and getting the word out, as well as making sure that online content is as up-to-date as possible. Along with being awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, on a more personal level, Donaldson’s interests include reading,

genealogy, and photography, as evidenced by his photos of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, though he intends to take advantage of the work-out gym down the hall from his office, to give him a less sedentary hobby. “I’ve got to get more physical,” he said. Appropriately enough for a school that houses a heritage institute, which seeks to preserve eastern Ontario’s stone architectural heritage, on Donaldson’s desk are five figurines, and a

framed photo, of the world-famous Terra Cotta Warriors, in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, in China. He was attending a graduation ceremony for a school which has a partnership with Algonquin College in Nanjing. With some free time available to him this past June, he decided to tick another box on his “bucket list” and visit the famous site. “With some of our heritage programs, it was good to see,” said Donaldson.

Operation Red Nose lights the Catholic board surpasses United Way fundraising goal way for residents this Christmas Sabine Gibbins

News - For the third year in a row, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic school board has the most successful United Way campaign in the city. The school board announced that it surpassed its goal of $550,000 at its Nepean ofďŹ ce on Nov. 26. Julian Hanlon, director of education for the board, said he was apprehensive about reaching this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Times are tough, there are some people in this room who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a raise in a couple of years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I think everyone came together and realized there are people less fortunate out there â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes in our own classrooms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and pulled together to help.â&#x20AC;? FIVE WEEK CAMPAIGN The ďŹ ve â&#x20AC;&#x201C; week campaign marked the third year the school boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising efforts raised the most money for United Way in the entire city. Jennifer Oake, principal at St. Pius X High School, said participants learned about the

James McCracken, chair of the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors, said the board has raised $3 million for the United Way in the last ďŹ ve years. The campaign involves 4,000 people, from individual schools to administration staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You showed you give a damn,â&#x20AC;? McCracken said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not just about the kids in your care, but about seniors,

new Canadians and those with mental health issues.â&#x20AC;? He added that studies show one in four children live below the poverty line. The agency announced their fundraising goal of $21 million in September. Organizers hoped to reach the goal by March 31. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money will be focused towards charities that help children get ready to start school, helping seniors stay in their homes and getting people off the streets.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A volunteer driving service wants to ensure residents get home safely this holiday season. Operation Red Nose launched its third-annual campaign on Nov. 22 at Billings Bridge Shopping Centre, and this year aims to attract nearly 300 volunteers to answer the phones and drive residents back to their homes. Brian Patterson of the Ontario Safety League told city ofďŹ cials and the community gathered there will be approximately 5,000 people from across the province volunteering to drive their neighbours, friends, and colleagues home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 11 communities, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resulted in one number thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to us: zero,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are shooting for zero casualties, zero crashes during the Operation Red Nose season. We have been able to achieve this for the last ďŹ ve years in every jurisdiction, which tells me that the media, the awareness and the information that comes out gets people focused and thinking.â&#x20AC;? Whether feeling unwell, the result of drinking, or due to fatigue, volunteers are dispatched to pick up the resident and drive them home. Last year, the organization worked 10 evenings, with 592 volunteers dispatched, 395 calls answered, 17,963 kilometres travelled, and $10,883 raised for the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. Taylor, who is also chair of the community and protective services committee, encouraged residents to volunteer for the service. He had the opportunity last year to visit some of the volunteers and hear their stories on what motivated them to help out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them had a personal connection,

others just wanted to look for something to do and give back to their community,â&#x20AC;? said Taylor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever the reason that brought them there, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful that they came, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re counting on them again this year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number shows a true commitment of the residents of our city to our city.â&#x20AC;? Operation Red Nose strives for the same goals as that of the Safer Roads Ottawa, a program approved by Ottawa city council in 2011, said Mayor Jim Watson said. The program aims to combine all the efforts of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internal departments, including Ottawa police, ďŹ re, paramedic, public health and public works departments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As well, we have directed staff to engage and support our partners in the community who are involved with safety. Our goal is to make the city of Ottawa the safest municipality in all of Canada when it comes to road safety.â&#x20AC;? The funding for Operation Red Nose comes through the Safer Roads Ottawa program. Although volunteers ensure residents get home safely, there are still accidents involving impaired driving, said Watson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Statistics over the last ďŹ ve years remind us that although we have achieved tremendous success at lowering the rates of impaired driving, there is still much work to do,â&#x20AC;? said Watson. Over the last ďŹ ve years, 1,786 collisions related to impaired driving have taken place, with 776 people injured and 238 killed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage you to think about your responsibility to get home safely,â&#x20AC;? he said. For anyone who needs a ride to get home safely this holiday season, call 613-820NOSE (6673). For more information on their services, please visit www.rednoseottawa.com.

Join 114th annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count tradition Lifestyle - Birders and nature enthusiasts in Carleton Place and Lanark Highlands areas will soon join citizen scientists throughout the Americas and participate in the Audubon Society’s longest-running wintertime tradition, the Annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). The Carleton Place CBC will be held this year on Friday, Dec. 27.

The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) will once again sponsor this bird count. The count area is a 24 km circle centered on the bridge over the Mississippi River in Carleton Place, and includes Almonte, Appleton and Ashton. The Lanark Highlands count, also sponsored by MVFN, will take place a few days later on Monday, Dec. 30. Details for both counts will be posted on the MVFN.ca website. This year, over 2,000 individual counts are scheduled to take place throughout the Americas and beyond between Dec. 14, 2013 and Jan. 5, 2014. “Each CBC volunteer observer is an important contributor, helping to shape the overall direction of bird conservation,” said Dick Cannings, Bird Studies Canada’s Christmas Bird Count Coordinator. “Bird Studies Canada and our partners at the National Audubon Society in the United States rely on data from the CBC database to monitor bird populations.” Last year, during the 2012 Carleton Place Christmas Bird Count over 50 volunteers spent the day observing birds resulting in the recording of nearly 5000 birds and 56 different species. The first Audubon bird count in Carleton Place took place in 1944. The CBC tradition began over a century ago when 27 conservationists in 25 localities, led by scientist and writer Frank Chapman, changed

This sharp-shinned hawk was spotted in a Carleton Place backyard last winter. Members of the public are invited to join in the 114th year of Audubon Christmas Bird Counting by joining a local count, such as the Carleton Place or Lanark Highlands Christmas Bird Count sponsored by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists. the course of ornithological history. On Christmas Day in 1900, the small group posed an alternative to the ‘side hunt,’ a Christmas day activity in which teams competed to see who could shoot the most birds and small mammals. Instead, Chapman proposed that they identify, count, and record all the birds they saw, founding what is now considered to be the world’s most significant citizen-based conservation effort. Volunteers are essential to the success of the CBC. You don’t need to

be an expert but it helps to be familiar with local bird species. In any case, participants in the field counts will be placed in a team led by an experienced birder and everyone is welcome. You will need a pair of binoculars. As well, residents with bird feeders within a count area can also help by listing all birds at your feeder or in your yard on the count day.

Pop Expo explores new territory with more horror and sci-fi Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – What do you get when you put a zombie slayer, time-travelling doctor, and wizardly arch-enemy in one room? Ottawa’s first-ever Pop Expo, taking place on Dec. 7 and 8 at the Ernst & Young Centre on Uplands Drive. The popular culture convention is run by the same company who delivered Ottawa’s ComicCon, which ran in May this year at the same venue. Program director Cliff Caporale said the convention aims to ease off the comic book angle, and go more towards a thematic approach, bringing fans closer to their heroes and villains. “Sometimes people forget that actors are people too,” said Caporale. “We have a lot of cool guests coming. We wanted to make this year different from the previous ComicCon’s that people are used to,

and catch up on the things we missed (from May).” This year’s special guests include actors from AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, as well as actors and fan-based organizations of the Doctor Who phenomenon. The list of guest also includes a fan favourite from the Harry Potter series: antagonist Malfoy, played by Tom Felton. Rounding out the list are sports heroes, artists, and renowned cosplayers – performance artists who dress up in costume to convey a specific character or idea. “We wanted to have The Walking Dead as one of the main themes, and then we built from there,” said Caporale. The build included notching Boondock Saints actors Sean Patrick Flanery and David Della Rocco, who will join popular actor Norman Reedus - who also plays crossbowwielding zombie slayer Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead – in a panel on Saturday afternoon. The movie became a cult hit after

released on DVD. Reedus is one of the most sought-after celebrities who tops the list of many conventions, said Caporale. Reedus will join his former co-stars for a Boondock Saints panel, while his Walking Dead co-stars – Sarah Wayne Callies, Scott Wilson, and Lew Temple will answer questions from the audience in their own panel. Caporale said he expects to see fans flock to get an autograph from Harry Potter’s Felton, mainly because he’s known as one of pop culture’s biggest foes. “He’s going to get a good reaction because he is one of the biggest bullies of all time (in movie history),” he said. Getting the actors to confirm their attendance can be a waiting game. Some actors, such as Reedus, are booked a year in advance, said Caporale. “A lot of the actors don’t get booked until the last minute,” he added. As is par for the convention course, a hall of exhibitors and vendors from across North America will set up shop in one of the halls. A celebrity autograph and photo op area will also be located close to it. Unlike in May, attendees will not have to wait outside to get into the building, said Caporale. Organizers have made it so that fans

will line up throughout the hallways of the convention centre instead of waiting outside. “We’re not going to have people lining up outside in December,” said Caporale. In May, the event attracted at 2,500, what Caporale said was a good-sized crowd for a city like Ottawa. He’s expecting a somewhat similar turn-out for this show, but given as it’s still relatively new in Ottawa, its success could take a while to gel in the city. “It takes a while for conventions to grow,” he said. “A lot of what we do is spread by word of mouth, and this is still relatively new for Ottawa.”

ACTIVITIES AND GUESTS A whole host of activities, ranging from celebrity question and answer sessions to panels and workshops, will offer something for everyone. A special Doctor Who panel on Dec. 8 is sure to drive a lot of fans as the series is celebrating its 50th anniversary, said Caporale. A full schedule of events, including a photo op schedule, is available online at www. ottawapopexpo.c

which serves individuals newly diagnosed with dementia, their families and caregivers. The program, which helps people obtain information and connects them with services, will support 704 more people each year; • expansion of the Going Home Program, which enables hospitals and communitybased agencies to work together to discharge clients from hospital safely. It provides at-home services to clients for a 10-day period after hospital discharge. The funding will expand the services to reach 750 more clients. LHIN officials point out recent initiatives to improve care for seniors have had a positive impact. In September, seniors in Champlain spent 3,488 fewer days waiting in hospital for community service, compared to two years previously. The new investment will help advance the LHIN’s Integrated Health Service Plan, with the stated aim of supporting healthy people and healthy communities through a quality, accessible health system. “These are the type of investments that are transforming the health system and improving the lives of individuals and families,” said Champlain LHIN CEO Chantale LeClerc. “The Champlain LHIN is working closely with our partners to expand programs and put in place new initiatives that address the needs of communities across our region. This work is well aligned to our key strategy of building a strong foundation of primary, home and community care.”

Lifestyle - Seniors and other residents in the Eastern Ontario are receiving better access to home care and community supports to help them live independently and at home longer. In a news release last Friday, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) reported that the province is providing more than $23.7 million to boost home care for more seniors and for expanded community health care services, including mental health supports, in the region, which includes Arnprior and area. It is estimated that one in six Champlain residents has a mental health or substance abuse disorder with higher rates among youth and young adults. The investment will “strengthen programs that reduce unnecessary emergency room and hospital readmissions.” Twenty-five programs serving thousands of new clients are receiving new, annual funding. They include: • expansion of adult day programs to provide part-of-the-day supervised programming in group settings for dependent adults, such as the frail elderly, individuals with dementia, and those with disabilities. The investment will serve 156 more people every year; • expansion of assisted-living services for high-risk seniors to provide personal support and homemaking on a 24-hour basis, along with urgent-call response and care co-ordination, with 160 more people obtaining services annually due to the investment; • expansion of the First Link Program,

News – While some did well, it was a difficult time for many hunters this year in the rifle deer season in the first two weeks of November. “The general response by hunters was that it was a harder hunt this year,” said Keith Gourley, chief organizer of the annual Gourley’s Variety and Sporting Goods deer-hunting contest. “The rut started up the second week of rifle (season) but was followed by a few days of rough weather. “Most gangs struggled to get deer this year,” said Gourley. “There was so much natural feed for the deer this year that they didn’t pattern the same as previous years; there was rough weather; and coyotes were running the bush. “We also had more-thanusual bear sightings during the deer hunt.”

Trading buck-and-doe contest. “It was a great two weeks,” said organizer Sharon Hutson, who extended a big thank-you to all the supporters of the event that has run since the late 1990s. “We were amazed we were over last year’s record.” As with every season, some groups met their full quota, while other hunt camps came up empty-handed. One of the most successful hunters was Tyler Roesler of Golden Lake who won the contest with a 230-pound field dressed buck. Second heaviest, at 217 pounds were Glen Rhode of Eganville and Justin Lacourse of Griffith. In the doe category, Wayne Visutskie of Eganville was first with a 157-pound field dressed deer, Dale Shane of Tooey Lake was second at 150 pounds and Pembroke hunter Dean Visutskie third at 148 pounds.

These factors may weigh favourably for the late-season bow hunt and black powder season, with the full rut on and weather stabilizing. In Gourley’s contest, two hunters tied for the largest field-dressed buck. The 226pounders were shot by Braedon Roesler of Eganville and Tyler Hanniman of Renfrew. Third place went to Gord Ryan of Dacre with his 216pound buck. Pat Ryan of Dacre brought down the biggest doe, at 136 pounds, to win a $150 gift certificate and $150 in cash. Gerard Hunt was second with his 126-lb. doe. Tied for second place was Chris Martin. Jason Riopelle of Renfrew shot the deer with the most points (14). Youngest and oldest successful hunters were Matthew Manion, 13, and John Deshane, 79. Meanwhile, a record registration of 609 hunters took part in the annual Mill Valley

Bowes Brothers Christmas concert set for Carleton Place Dec. 8 Jeff Maguire Arts - Audiences in the Ottawa Valley are in for a pre-holiday treat when the always popular Bowes Brothers present ‘Home For Christmas’ featuring some of the most popular songs of the Yuletide season. The Carleton Place band, who released their latest compact disc in front of a jam-packed audience of more than 400 at the Almonte Civitan Club in mid-September, will perform ChristR0012445651

mas music at a 7 p.m. show at the Carleton Place Arena on Sunday, Dec. 8. Special musical guests for all performances will be Arlene Quinn, a well-known performer who hails from rural Lanark County and Dave ‘Brownie’ Brown of Carleton Place. The Bowes Brothers and Brown both received acclaim for their performances during the 2013 Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame awards show held at Nepean’s Centrepointe Theatre on Sept. 29. Backing up the Bowes Brothers will be the North Country Show Band including father Clarence on rhythm guitar, drummer Mark Lemieux from Almonte, Pakenham’s Brad Scott on lead guitar and Matt Brydges of Renfrew on stand-up bass. Lemieux is a member of the Ottawa Valley Country

R0012453988

Music Hall of Fame. Tickets for the show are $15 apiece and are available at SRC Music in Carleton Place, the Carleton Place Hospital Foundation office at Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital or at the Barker Funeral Home, 19 McArthur Ave., Carleton Place. Almonte’s Charlie Kitts, who was inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010 as a builder, will act as master of ceremonies. “Charlie knows how to introduce people perfectly. He has a great sense of humour and he always sets the scene so well,” says Carleton Place concert promoter Bob White who has been recruited to assist with the series. “The concert will feature lots of old Christmas favourites. But there will be just enough other music to keep everyone happy,” White observes. A true “Band of Brothers” the foursome remains true to their roots. The Bowes boys were born, raised and still live in and around their hometown of Carleton Place. Many of their songs are written by oldest brother Ed while younger brothers Rod, John and Andy all take turns on lead vocals. Influenced by some of the greats of the country music industry, the band features outstanding four-part harmony. Youngest brother Andy is also well known for his yodeling ability. The Bowes Brothers have become one of the most popular bands in the Ottawa Valley and Eastern Ontario. They also have a sizeable following in the Maritimes where they have performed numerous times. In 2010 they were featured at the world famous Calgary Stampede. The Bowes Brothers have earned a place on stage with some of the greats of the industry opening for such major musical figures as Ricky Skaggs, Terri Clark, Michelle Wright, George Canyon, Paul Brandt, Ronnie Prophet, Charlie Major and the late, great Stompin’ Tom Connors. Their latest recording ‘Strictly Statler’, in which they cover many of the hit songs of the ever popular Statler Brothers including such favourites as Flowers on the Wall and Bed of Roses, is selling very well. John Bowes says the Carleton Place show is in support of the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Foundation. Bowes credits one of his two partners in the Alan R. Barker Funeral Home, Wayne Bennett, for proposing that very successful concert series. The Barker Funeral Home has been a major sponsor of similar productions for years. Their involvement has led others in the community to join the effort. “Without all of our sponsors we couldn’t do what we do,” Bowes observes. “We sincerely thank all of them for their support.

Maria makes her point In conjunction with the City of Ottawa and MASC (connecting Artists and Learning), St. Michael (Fitzroy) School benefitted from a performance by Maria Hawkins’ Stop Bullying with the Blues as part of the school’s anti-bullying week finale Nov. 22. Hawkins used music, direct talk and involvement of the audience to empower bystanders and victims to take a stand against bullying. The school thanks the City of Ottawa for partially subsidizing this presentation through the City of Ottawa Rural Initiatives Fund. During her interactive presentation Hawkins chatted (above) with staffers Beverlely Hammond, Donna Rousselle, Elean Prospero, Roland Hall and Shannon Quinn. She also used props, like the shoe (above right) to get her message of tolerance across.

St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball team spikes competition Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

DEREK DUNN/METROLAND

St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Fitzroy Harbour put together a volleyball team that upset almost every team in the city this year.

    

  

Sports - The little country-school team that could came within three sets of doing the unthinkable: winning the city volleyball title. St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic School in Fitzroy Harbour has just 190 students, leaving few to pick from for the intermediate boys volleyball team. Besides, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never even made the playoffs before let alone been contenders for the title. But like most everything in this world itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality that matters. Not quantity. According to coach Justin Nolan the boys had natural skill - especially team leader Grady McClure, whom his coaches calls the best volleyball player in the city - along with tenacity and a strong work ethic. All that comes in handy when the schools with hundreds and hundreds of students decide to underestimate the country kids. Underdogs that revel in their lot tend to prove the naysayers wrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our kids didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any excuses,â&#x20AC;? Nolan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are very resilient and love the idea of defying the odds.â&#x20AC;? He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t positive the team would reach the finals when the year started out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we had a pretty good team, but it was peaking at the right time,â&#x20AC;? he said. The first game of the year saw the opponents play a â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendlyâ&#x20AC;? game with the St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mustangs. Then came the tournament at All Saints where the boys split their games a respectable 2-2. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the confidence began to build. The team grew into a well-balanced squad with all players fitting into their roles well. They were both defence and offensive oriented, a real balanced attack with solid blocking and nice setups for the attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Serving was our best asset,â&#x20AC;? Nolan said. At one point during a three game stretch they outscored opponents 7519. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to overcome St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. They lost the finals in three sets: 25-18, 25-16, 25-6. TEAM MEMBERS

The 2013 Mustangs intermediate boys volleyball team are Kyle Renaud, Haydn Holbrook, Jack Jefferies, Mason McGuire, Noah Nickerson, Anthony Nephin, Keith Fracasso, Jonah McMillan, and Grady McClure.
