News - Santa Claus has been busy driving his sleigh in parades in Constance Bay, Arnprior, Renfrew and Calabogie. And this Saturday, he comes back to West Carleton. The Huntley Community Association (HCA) is hosting its 5th annual Santa Claus parade in Carp Dec. 14. Parade registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Diefenbunker park-

ing lot at 3911 Carp Rd. Carp Road will be closed at 11:45. The parade begins at noon. The parade begins and ends at the Diefenbunker and follows Carp Road to Juanita Street to Langstaff Drive, turning right on Donald B. Munro Drive and back onto Carp Road. Road closures will be in effect for the parade. See PARADE, page 5

News – Pinto Valley Ranch, among the valley’s most popular places for the public to experience a working farm and ride horses, is set to close its gates for the last time. After 58 years the ranch will turn into a private residence and farm on Sunday, June 1, 2014. It will remain a boarding facility for many area horse owners, but the Jardine family has decided that the time is right to hang up the saddle. Generations of rural lifestyle lovers have journeyed to the ranch, located at the corner of Galetta Side and Ferry roads in West Carleton. They could pet the animals that dart across the pond or fields, ride a horse or grab some chow at Step Up Ruby’s restaurant. “We are retiring in June,” said owner Tracey, as enthusiastic as always. “We are in a position to make it happen, and it’s a lot of work. It’s with joy and sadness, because it’s been a lot of years.” Tracey and Ben intend to spend more time attending their children’s

activities and gathering together for quiet family time. “We are excited to settle into a little slower pace and make family time our number one priority,” Tracey said. In a press release issued Dec. 6, Pinto Valley ranch indicated that customers are encouraged to renew old memories or make new ones before the spring due date. “It has been a lot of fun and a real privilege to have enjoyed the last five years here at the ranch with the public,” it reads. “We have met so many new and wonderful people and it has been a very fast paced exciting ride.” An auction sale takes place Saturday, June 7, 2014. Horses, ponies, tack, equipment and other related items from the business will be up for sale. For more, see www. pintovalley.com With the recent closure of Storyland amusement park northwest of Renfrew, the loss of another rural institution in Pinto Valley Ranch is sad news to many. But the Jardines insist it is – like every day the sun comes up cause for celebration.

Dunrobin driver charged after playing chicken with cars in Wakefield Trevor Greenway Metro Ottawa

News - A 42-year-old Dunrobin man was arrested for impaired driving Nov. 30 after he allegedly smoked pot and played “chicken� with at least a dozen cars, including a police cruiser on Highway 105 in Wakefield. According to MRC des Collines Spokesperson Martin Fournel, the man, who has yet to be identified, left Mont Ste-Marie after a day of snowboarding around 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 and began “driving like he was impaired.� He was veering in and out of his lane and

drivers heading in the opposite direction had to swerve to avoid a head-on collision, said Fournel. He said his force got a handful of calls within minutes from motorists following the erratic driver. “When there was no vehicle coming the other way, he was driving normal,� said Fournel. “So (witnesses) noticed when there was a vehicle coming the opposite way, he was swerving at them.� An MRC des Collines Police cruiser headed north to intercept the driver and nearly collided with him head-on, Fournel said.. The cop pulled a U-turn and pursued the driver, but the 42-year-old wouldn’t pull over. He

then ran a red light in Wakefield before giving up his joy ride, Fournel said. Officers figured the man was drunk, but they couldn’t smell alcohol. A sobriety test proved he was under the legal blood-alcohol concentration of .08 per cent, but cops weren’t convinced he was completely sober. They sent him to a Gatineau police station where cops performed an “intense questionnaire,� that Fournel said revealed the driver was stoned on marijuana. “They were able to, without any doubt, say that he used pot,� said Fournel, adding that the questionnaire lasted over an hour. Fournel would not elaborate on the content of the questionnaire.

“Exactly how much? Hard to tell.� Police also took a urine sample and he said results are pending. Police towed the man’s vehicle, but found no drugs or alcohol inside. Charges are pending against the driver, said Fournel. “We don’t believe it was an attempted suicide, he was just playing chicken – with people.� Police are looking for any drivers who were forced to swerve out of the way of a 2010 dark blue Toyota Corolla on Hwy 105 on Saturday between around 4 p.m. Anyone with information can call Fournel at 819-459-9911 ext. 3262.

Liberals has led many Canadians to conclude all federal parties are corrupt. Dewar chuckled and said his party benefits from having never been in power at the national level; but that the NDP are doing the hard work needed to generate grassroots support. He agrees the Conservatives appealed to voters’ angry cynical side, but that they are to be admired for building a grassroots movement. “If you believed people back in 2006 and 2007 you’d think the NDP was disappearing,� Dewar said. “We

are doing the hard work to figure out who is our constituency for issues we think are most important.� McCrimmon said the public’s pox-on-all-their-houses summary is a form of voter suppression that benefits Harper and the Conservatives. “If they make it so unsavoury that everybody is turned off, he wins,� she said. “There’s a lot of good people in politics, but if everyone is turned off the angry cynical people will win. That’s why we need to build hope.�

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ottawa area Liberals and New Democrats have fallen short of calling for Prime Minister Stephen Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resignation over the senate scandal, but that could just be a matter of time. Tory MP Gordon Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak to the issue, prompting at least on opposition MP to indicate that backbenchers are no longer following the PMOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s script. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in his own partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talking points, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak with (Metroland East),â&#x20AC;? said Paul Dewar of the MP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had frank discussions in the past with Gordon Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor. I know him to be an honourable man. And given the point of view he might not be running again, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me.â&#x20AC;? Dewar, member of Parliament for Ottawa Centre, said the scandal is less about the senate than Harper and his inner circle. Backbenchers have long tired of being muzzled by young handlers in the PMO, culminating in Conservative bill to place limits on Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power. Dewar said he agrees with Michael Chongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill in principle, but that his party already has many of its provisions in place. Former Liberal leadership candidate Karen McCrimmon sides with Justin Trudeau when it comes to holding off on a demand that Harper resign. She is convinced there is

much more to come from the senate scandal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This goes deeper than this,â&#x20AC;? said McCrimmon, who vows to again run against Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What would drive Wright â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who is a smart man, who knows the rules â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to make that critical decision to pay Duffy?

Closing rural city services politically unpopular Kinburn cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s least-used service centre; closing centres and axing staff could save $842K Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Closing underused city service centres would save a lot of money, but councillors said that option is unacceptable. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said centres that provide city services are

an important issue for councillors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially those who represent rural areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are also places where city staff can work remotely,â&#x20AC;? he added. The city needs to consider the intangible benefits of providing easy access to the centres because it encourages people to follow the rules and

obtain necessary permits for things like fires, El-Chantiry said. The city employs the equivalent of 40 full-time employees to staff the centres with a budget of $3.2 million. Axing 13 of those employees and closing the centres they work at could save the city $824,000 a year, auditor

general Alain Lalondeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 report found. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is because the resources are not being fully utilized,â&#x20AC;? said Ray Kostuch, the deputy auditor general. But city manager Kent Kirkpatrick said city management has no intent of closing centres at this point. The rural centres â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially Kinburn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would be first on the chopping block. They already operate on limited hours â&#x20AC;&#x201C; usually only once a week. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fairly common for rural residents to use service centres in the urban area, where they work, Kostuch said. Donna Gray, manager of Service Ottawa, reiterated that she is not looking at closing rural service centres. The centres provide essential tax and other city services â&#x20AC;&#x153;for our residents who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have internet access and people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access in other ways,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Kinburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city service centre was the least used in 2012, according to an audit. It processed only 11 transactions on an average day but city councillors said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to keep rural service centres open. city will look at how the staff time and service capacity at the centres could bet better used. The city will also be looking at ensuring the service centres are located where they provide the most convenience and have the best chance of being used by residents.

Twenty-three per cent of transactions performed at the centres are payments of water and tax bills, which could be automated instead of requiring staff to process the payments, Kostuch said. The city is in the process of putting more services online as part of the Service Ottawa initiative.

of Ottawa,” said Wilkinson. The complex also features four public art commissions by local artists, and the beginnings of an outdoor sculpture garden. Gauntlet, a hockey glove carved out of Indiana limestone and created by Almonte artist Marcus Kucey-Jones, was paid for through fundraising money and is the first addition to what will become the sculpture garden.

News - The first thing many people notice as they walk through the doors of the new Richcraft Recreation Complex Kanata is the large, eight-lane pool surrounded by windows and filled with light. Sisters Alexandria and Norah Beer said they are looking forward to testing out the new facility. “Going in the swimming pool and going outside to the park,” are seven-year-old Alexandria’s two main priorities, she said. Not to be outdone, fiveyear-old Norah said, “I’ll use everything!” as she looked around the 8,360 square metre building. The two sisters helped load up the vault with time capsules from the mayor and west end councillors during the grand opening ceremony for the Richcraft Recreation Complex on Dec. 5. Community fundraising, including the sale of the time capsules, helped pay for an additional two lanes for the pool, as well as a youth room and a larger skate park. So far, the efforts have generated $979,900 of the $1.2 million needed, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, and fundraising is ongoing.

Christmas has exploded all over the house Lifestyle - This past weekend all Christmas broke loose at the Fisher farm. I had an agenda when I woke up Sunday morning because I knew things were only going to get busier before the big day and if I didn’t get a move on the lights would never get up. It’s not like they can put themselves up. So, I found the ladder and the long hooked pole that the Farmer had rigged up for this very purpose. I got the box of lights out of the basement, spent half an hour untangling them and stretching them out across the front lawn, then I fastened the end of the string

of lights to the end of the hooked pole. Wielding my instrument like a super-long fly-fishing rod, I cast up toward the top of the huge pine tree. And promptly got the entire apparatus stuck there. I got the pole back and the end of the lights are sort of up at the top of the tree. Almost at the top. Good enough. A man on a galloping horse would never notice, as my mom says. I brought the pole to the barn and got a garden rake out instead. Armed with that, I repeatedly pushed the string of lights up onto the branches as I moved my ladder around the tree.

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife Almost tipped over a few times, and I imagined the boys watching me from the house. I was stubborn, didn’t ask for help, and decided halfway through I didn’t need it anyway. I got the job done. Back in the house, I decided I would let the men go find me a tree while I dragged boxes of decorations out of the attic crawl space. I found the balls and the stars, the angels and the ribbon that I wind through the branches. I tested the strings of white lights and hung the stockings all over the living room. Then I

started getting the house ready for Sunday dinner and waited for the men. I had given them less than an hour to find me a tree before we had to start cooking dinner. I hoped they would be lucky. I remember one Christmas a few years ago when I challenged the Farmer to find me a tree on the property. We drove the ATV out back over deep snow and I pointed at the top of a huge tree. He climbed up and sawed the top five feet off. When it fell down to the ground and rolled over I burst out laughing. The back of it was just a bunch of

brown twigs. My poor husband was covered in sweat from his tree-climbing and sawing efforts. We just left the poor thing there in the snow and went to visit the Johnson Brothers instead. And that’s what we have done every year – gone to a tree farm to pick out a perfectly trimmed and cultivated Christmas tree, like the cityfolk. Well, this year I decided I wanted to try again. And the Farmer is always up for a challenge. Within an hour I heard the ATV returning, a beautiful round tree on the trailer and our two Chinese students dangling their feet off the back of the ride. It wasn’t until they unloaded their bounty that I was told it was actually two trees tied together. Leave it to the Farmer to come up with that little feat of engineering. Bringing it into the

house was a bit of a challenge, and so was finding a space for it in the living room. I got the lights and ribbon, ornaments and candy canes on it before our guests arrived and even snapped a picture or two. John and Jerry pronounced it beautiful, and I have to agree. It’s the best tree we have ever had. Our beautiful double-barreled Christmas tree tried to fall into the room once during Sunday dinner, reminding us to tighten the screws in the base as well as tying it to the curtain rods on both sides. Now it is secure. It should make it through the holidays, as long as I remember to lock the cats in the basement before I go to bed at night. ‘Cause if they get into it, the song will be “oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, your ornaments are history…”

No shocking new developments

I

ntensification is still the buzz word for development in Ottawa, so we should all get used to it. The city recently approved a swath of plans that will guide the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth and development over the next two decades. Council gave the thumbs up to five master plans, including the Official Plan, the infrastructure master plan and the transportation master plan. The city said it will encourage intensification, not exactly a new concept, but one that usually sparks heated debate when development applications are discussed at community associations and at planning committee. Yet for some reason, it sometimes comes as a shock to residents when a developer takes the city at its word and proposes to build a high-rise or mid-rise in an established community. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not willy-nilly development.The official plan encourages intensification in specific areas of the city, namely rural areas, villages, mixed-use centres and public transit stations. The plan requires development to fit the character of the community. Keep in mind, a developer can always apply to build a large building in an area the city may not prefer. All it requires is a little rezoning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if the city objects, it risks fighting an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board, and Ottawa hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly racked

up a stellar record fighting those appeals, especially when the development requests are supported by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own staff. We can only hope this type of unwanted development requests are few and far between, as the official plan offers preferred areas of the city for intensification. Residents should check out the planned extensions to the Transitway, as well as the future routes of the light-rail transit system, which will be built over the coming decades. Those plans will give a good indication what areas developers are targeting for intensification. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Official Plan aims to promote smart growth, for instance, by discouraging urban sprawl, a costly phenomenon for taxpayers, as it requires providing roads, water pipes, storm water management and other services to previously undeveloped areas. Smart growth means encouraging public transit and reducing the number of motorists clogging our roads. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master plans for growth offer solace for residents by giving them the relative certainty of where development can occur, and what type of development, with rules governing the heights and designs of buildings. To avoid unwelcome shocks, residents may want to check out the plans, specifically in areas near where they live.

Who can save downtown? Maybe nobody

L

ast time we looked, the cinemas at the World Exchange Plaza were doomed. No one was happy about that, apparently not even the people who were doing the dooming. But, as the current motto of the hopeless goes, it is what it is. The movie theatres at World Exchange are nice and, more important, nicely located. They have developed a bit of a niche following by blending in artier fare with the usual mainstream stuff. But one movie company decided to vacate the premises when its lease expires, and while another movie company has taken over the lease, there are no guarantees that it will continue to show movies in 2014. Meanwhile, the owners of the building are thinking about converting the theatres to office space. Yes, office space with sloping floors. But it is what it is. Ottawa city council has expressed concern, with various councillors asking city staff to explore all options, and noting rather pointedly that the city has been helpful to the World Exchange people in the past. It sure would be nice if someone with a sense of social responsibility and civic pride â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps even the current owners

That canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have helped our downtown life. True, the suburbanization of just about everything has been a feature of our existence for some time. A lot of shopping is now done away from the core; entertainment complexes, not to mention sports facilities, have moved a distance away. People are getting used to heading away from the centre. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it ideal. It means a lot of driving, a lot of traffic, a lot of oil consumption, a lot of greenhouse gases. And is it

not also true that one of the aims of our city government has been to encourage population growth in the centre, getting people to move downtown in a bid to make the city more liveable, less dependent on the automobile? It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help this goal if the people who move downtown then have to get into their cars and drive for half an hour if they want to see a movie. (That is, a mainstream movie, because the Bytowne, on Rideau Street, does a good job of serving those whose taste in films leans to the less commercial.) And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much in the way of consolation that a cinema is maybe going to open at the new Lansdowne development. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than walking distance for many downtown people. So they will drive their cars to Lansdowne, giving the Glebe just what it needs: more cars. The situation is so dire that people have even begun to use what I call the G8 argument, to wit: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a disgrace that in the capital of a G8 nation you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even find a movie theatre in the downtown!â&#x20AC;? And you know, that is a persuasive argument. But what can anybody do about it? Business will do what business will do, like it or not. City council can plead, citizens can mutter. But no one can force a cinema to stay

open. It is what it is. This is probably the kind of thing Justin Trudeau was getting at when he made his much ridiculed comments about his â&#x20AC;&#x153;level of admirationâ&#x20AC;? for the Chinese government and that fact that a dictatorship can do things in a hurry. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something in that. If we had the Chinese government here and the Chinese government wanted there to be a movie theatre in downtown Ottawa, there would be one and we could all enjoy attending it. Of course, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also have the Chinese government.

Restaurant, the LCBO, or Scotiabank in the village. Ornaments are in blue or pink to indicate gender, with an age range on the back. The gift can be dropped off at the church or the food aid in the Memorial Hall basement. There isn’t a lot of concern that donations to Filipino typhoon survivors will take away from giving locally. There are always lots of different causes during the Christmas season, Stone said. In past years the church hall is packed with boxes, food and gifts. About 40 volunteers are racing about with 10 drivers coming and going all day long. “It’s a real community thing, not just the congregation. It’s a lot of fun and crazy. Last year it was a snowstorm,” Stone said. “Christmas is a wonderful time for us to think of others. It gives you an opportunity to take a pause on the craziness of Christmas and serve and support other people that are having a hard time.” She said it is a gift to volunteers to help others. Anyone wishing to make a donation before the Dec. 20 delivery day is asked to drop off food or a cheque to West Carleton Emergency Food Aid, 3739 Carp Rd., or St. James the Apostle church at 3774 Carp Rd., in the village of Carp.

Community – The annual food basket drive will be a challenge this year with a jump in need anywhere from a quarter to a third. “We’ll need up to 90 baskets,” Rev. Monique Stone said. “It’s an overall increase of 25 to 30 per cent.” Stone is with St. James Anglican Church, located next to the Carp fairgrounds. Some from her congregation join other volunteers at the parish hall on the Friday before Christmas to package baskets and deliver to recipients throughout West Carleton. A big setback is that she isn’t expecting significant corporate donations as in past years. “We have no indication there will be any hope of a large corporate donation like in the last couple of years.” Added to this, the price of food has escalated over the year putting pressure on the West Carleton Emergency Food Aid’s ability to package a dinner and breakfast. Each box should contain a fresh turkey, cheese and fixings, along with food for the morning and, for families with children, gifts. Anyone wanting to purchase a child’s gift can take an ornament from angel trees at Alice’s

Showtimes are 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and doors open at the community centre 15 minutes prior to each set. “This is our 13th annual holiday showcase. Time flies,” said WCSOPA director Melissa Demers. She said the event is a “very family friendly opportunity to be exposed to the performing arts” and is intended to cultivate an appreciation of dance and drama. “People can expect to see various styles of dances, and some drama, (tap, jazz, ballet, acro, contemporary, hip hop and musical theater),” added school administrator Donna Bernard. “Tickets are $ 5 and that gets you into all three shows, tickets are available at the studio

now and at the door.” The winter showcase is a fundraiser for a tumble track for the studio, located at 3987 Dunrobin Rd. in Woodlawn. “A tumble track is an inflatable track that is used for many different things, tumbling, learning different types of jumps, and lifts. The air filled track assists in giving students more air time to allow them to learn new skills in a safe environment, said Bernard. Along with dancing, there will also be a silent auction, bake sale and various vendors, just in time for Christmas. “(It’s) lots of fun seeing the adorable two year-old right up to the jaw dropping talent of our senior dancers,” said Demers.

Will this be a Snowy winter? With numbers of Snowy Owls currently being sighted across southern Ontario, this may well be one of those years. The Snowy Owl I encountered was a young male. I could tell this because it was quite small for its species (but still large for an owl) and had dark markings on top of its head, wings, and back. Adult males sport very few spots and some are immaculate. Females, which are a third larger than the males, always have some dark markings. Young females are sometimes so heavily marked they look like a

If voles are at a low in their population cycle, Snowy Owls pass through our area and travel farther east and south in search of better hunting grounds.

Lifestyle When one thinks of an owl, a big brown bird silently gliding through the night usually comes to mind. This is because most of our owls sport brown as their main colour and most hunt at night. Great Horned and Barred owls are our two largest local nesting species, but even diminutive Northern Saw-whet Owls and the mediumsized Long-eared and Short-eared owls are predominantly brown. In some winters boreal forest species visit our area. Great Gray Owls, Northern Hawk Owls and the rarely seen Boreal Owls are more grey than brown. Recently a Northern Hawk Owl, a long-tailed, diurnal owl that looks like a small but big-headed hawk, was spotted near Arnprior. Just last week I came across another visiting owl on the Galetta Side Road near the 417 overpass. It came from the north but not from the boreal forest, and its colour was white. It was a Snowy Owl, the most northern owl in the world, and it had come from

very different species. We have not recorded Snowy Owls on the Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count since 2008, so I am hoping this one lingers for a couple of more weeks. Even if more are found, it will be hard to beat the record of seven tallied on Dec. 26, 1987. However, my fingers are crossed for a very Snowy Christmas this year! With the Boxing Day count rapidly approaching, I would appreciate hearing of the birds coming to your feeders if you live within 7.5 miles of Pakenham (the bird count area is a 15-mile-diameter circle centred near Pakenham).

Heavy equipment dealer preps for move to West Carleton Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A Stittsville John Deere dealership got the city’s nod to move to a new location in West Carleton, despite city staff’s advise to refuse the proposal. The Nortrax John Deere dealership off Carp Road is on its way to moving to a new, expanded location at 190 David Manchester Rd., nearby the new Play Value Toys location that faced a similar rezoning supported by councillors – but not city staff – last year. City planner Laurel McCreight said there is already more than 100 years worth of supply of vacant employment land in the rural area, so the dealership could find appropriate land that’s already zoned to allow something like a heavy equipment dealership. It’s not that simple, said Janet Bradley, a planning lawyer working on behalf of Nortrax. “In a nutshell, this property is very unique and unusual,” she said. The company has spent three years looking for a piece of land like this in the Ottawa area and this meets the bill, Bradley said. It’s bounded by Highway 7 on one side, a hydro corridor on the other side, and the only things nearby are a quarry and the Capital City Speedway, which won’t be bothered by flatbed trucks bringing in heavy farming and construction equipment, she said. The rocky land is partially covered with scrub forestry and couldn’t be farmed, she

added.

MVCA undertaking shoreline restoration along Carp River Theresa Fritz Theresa.fritz@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Shoreline restoration initiatives are underway along the Carp River. The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) is currently working on two projects downstream of the Village of Carp in partnership with the City of Ottawa, the Friends of the Carp River (FCR), shoreline landowners, and with funding from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are just starting with the work,â&#x20AC;? said MVCA biologist Kelly Stiles. She said the project came about when the Friends of the Carp River contacted the conservation authority in the hopes of expanding current restoration efforts downstream of Kanata, where some work had been done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surveys were done in 2012 to map areas in need of improve-

ment,â&#x20AC;? Stiles said, referring to the assessment done last summer which discovered issues such as erosion and blockage along the river. Two abandoned farm crossings were identified as areas in need of improvement and the landowners were contacted for permission to do work. That work was done last Thursday (Dec. 5). Stiles said the shorelines by these crossings have sustained ice damage and erosion problems. High flow velocities caused by the damage make it difficult for fish to migrate upstream to spring breeding grounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were successful in removing the two abandoned river crossings, as well as a debris jam from the Carp River as planned. In the spring, we intend to do a large shoreline planning to improve the riparian habitat and protect the shorelines against erosion at both sites,â&#x20AC;? Stiles said. Approximately 150 metres of shoreline will be planted with

local native trees and shrubs helping to restore the banks from historical cattle access and the disturbance caused when removing the bridge structures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Next year we will be replanting top of banks,â&#x20AC;? said Stiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to do a shoreline planning.â&#x20AC;? The hope is that these projects will spur other landowners from doing the same with their properties along the river. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Department of Fisheries and Oceans provided us the grant money to do this project since it will improve the ability of fish to migrate up the system during high spring flows, as well as reduce potential negative impacts on fish habitat due to shoreline erosion,â&#x20AC;? Stiles said. Funds are available to provide advice, materials, and labour for shoreline projects. Stiles said if shoreline residents are interested in participating in these stewardship activities, MVCA staff can help get them started. Stiles can be reached at the MVCA office at 613-253-0006 or kstiles@mvc.on.ca.

West Eco-Club works hard to make school more eco-friendly Emily Edwards WCSS co-op student

Community – The West Carleton Secondary School Eco Club, or “Gang Green”, is unquestionably putting in the time needed to get the school involved in environmental activities. Through weekly meetings, the students in the group have managed to coordinate a number of different eco-initiatives to improve school culture and environmental stewardship. Some of these activities include a Clean Air Champions presentation, discussing how to live a more sustainable and active life, and a day dedicated to cleaning up the school grounds. The group is also planning a waste and energy audit for the school, aiming to compare how

the students are doing in the first semester of school, to how they improve next semester. This should reflect the environmental consciousness of the students, and hopefully give the members of the club ideas for next year towards improving the environmental abilities of the school. The group is also planning a waste and energy audit for the school, aiming to compare how eco-conscious the students are now, to how they are next semester. An activity the “Gang Green” members are excited about is the “Ban the Bottle” campaign. The aim of the campaign is to get students to drink more tap water and avoid using plastic bottles. To support this initiative, the students are currently selling reusable water bottles with

the Eco Club logo. “We are aiming for engagement from the whole school to get all of this accomplished,” said science teacher at West Carleton, Amie Lee. “We also want to set some new goals for next year.” Lee mentions that the group is also planning

a spirit week in March that will include an “I can go without” campaign that aims to increase awareness of World Water Day. “This activity looks at what amenities people in most countries go without,” said Lee of the campaign. Also included in the spirit week will be a healthy alternative food fair and bake sale.

CHEO takes home hardware for top pediatric inpatient care Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) was named as the top hospital in Ontario for pediatric inpatient satisfaction according to a patient ratings report. The report, released last week, was completed by the National Research Corporation Canada/Ontario Hospital Association. The report, completed by the Ontario Hospital Association and National Research Council Canada, was based on patients who had an inpatient stay or emergency department

visit between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012. CHEO president and CEO Alex Munter said the good news is a reflection of the diligent and consistent work of hospital staff and the parents of many children. We really are the voice of patients and their families,” said Munter. “With 26 hospitals in Ontario being ranked … these are great institutions to be ranked with.” “We are accountable to our own patients, so this ranking comes as a compliment of CHEO people.” Munter said not a day goes by where he doesn’t

see the generousity and dedication of staff. “Every day just reminds us in so many different ways how

staff and patients really make CHEO what it is,” he said. CHEO had the highest ranking in overall satisfaction with

inpatient care, according to a survey filled out by patients and parents. “This is just the beginning. CHEOnext, our strategic plan, focuses on providing an exceptional experience for every patient and family,” said Munter. “CHEO’s aim is to go from really good to really great by engaging patients and parents in every facet of care, listening to their feedback and using it to continuously improve.”

CHEO is the second largest hospital in the Champlain Local Health Integration Network and one of only a few stand-alone pediatric hospitals in Canada. Last year CHEO treated 6,245 children and youth, with more than 2,500 doctors working around the clock to provide care.

Next steps for a smoke-free Ontario include penalties Community - Ontario is taking the next steps to protect youth from the harmful effects of smoking. The province will introduce legislation and propose regulatory changes that would, if passed, strengthen the Smoke-Free Ontario Act by increasing penalties for selling tobacco to kids and further limiting smoking in public areas. The proposed measures include: * Prohibiting smoking on playgrounds, sport fields, and restaurant and bar patios. * Increasing fines for those who sell tobacco to youth, making Ontario’s penalties the highest in Canada. * Banning the sale of flavoured tobacco

products to make smoking less appealing to young people. * Strengthening enforcement to allow for testing of tobacco in waterpipes in indoor public places. * Prohibiting tobacco sales on post-secondary education campuses and specified provincial government properties. The measures build on steps the government has already taken, including protecting kids from tobacco exposure in motor vehicles, prohibiting tobacco use in indoor public places and workplaces, and banning the sale of flavoured cigarillos. Preventing youth from starting to use tobacco and protecting them from the harmful

effects of second hand smoke will help to achieve the government’s Action Plan for Health Care goal to have the lowest smoking rate in the country. QUICK FACTS

• 66 per cent of people in Ontario want smoking to be prohibited on restaurant and bar patios. • 58 Ontario municipalities representing 61 per cent of the population already ban smoking on playgrounds. • Each year, tobacco claims 13,000 lives in Ontario — equivalent to 36 lives every day.

Inaugural Carp dinner and talk a success; raises funds for food bank Lifestyle - It was a familiar scene for the old Carp Memorial Hall as families, seniors and singles getting together for a meal, children playing, people singing a few carols and the community raising food and funds for those less fortunate. The Dec. 8 event was a group effort, with volunteers from the Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre, funding from the Carp Ridge Learning Centre, (a registered charity), donations of food from growers at the Carp Farmer’s Market and individuals contributing their cooking and help setting up and cleaning up. SEVERAL GOALS

The goal of this event is manypronged: to fundraise for the local food bank (seven large boxes and $1,100); increase awareness of our local food supply; share knowledge of nutritious eating; support area families and seniors; bring commu-

nity together as sponsors/speakers; strengthen our network of sustainable services; and learn tools for healthy living in the often stressful modern world. The theme for this first dinner and talk was Healthy Sweeteners, with naturopathic doctor Chelsey Corrigan separating out “the good, the bad and the ugly”, encouraging us to replace our white sugar and artificial sweeteners with more wholesome and natural varieties which were on display for people to try. A useful handout will no doubt be pinned to several fridges! Almost 50 people of all ages attended, with much appreciation for the healthy and delicious food cooked mainly by holistic chef Kim Trott from Carp. The highlights were shepherd’s pie with sweet potatoes, a chickpea curry with coconut milk and an apple-rhubarb crisp with yogurt and local maple syrup.

MANY DONATIONS

Thanks go to the following donors of food: Dobson Farms/grass-fed beef; Nelson Water Systems for purified water and a stand; Maple Holme Sugar Bush for syrup; ServiPro Farm for some crispy Jerusalem artichokes; Chamomile Desjardins for his famous hot sauce; the Hemp Cookie Company for gluten-free hemp cookies; Russell and Abigail Corbett for their splendid raw honey; Kricklewood Farm for local organic, cold-pressed sunflower oil; tasty apples from Harvest Moon Orchard; a fabulous bean dip made by Sallie Storey; and delectable devilled eggs concocted by Sandy Rawson. The next dinner and talk will sometime in the New Year.

³4HE3TATION´AT,ONGFIELDS9OU´VE!RRIVED This Saturday December 14th, Campanale Homes will officially unveil the long awaiting centrepiece to their Longfields Station project in the heart of Barrhaven. The STATION , conveniently located directly in front of the new Longfields Transit station, is a short walk from the transitway and unlimited access to Ottawa’s public transportation hub. This four-storey luxury apartment condominium, will feature a selection of one and two bedroom designs, 12 in total to choose from, complete with storage lockers and heated underground parking for most units. All but one design will also have an ample sized balcony adorned with smoked glass guards. One of the more unique features of this distinctive destination, is the inclusion of 6 light commercial shops and services on the main floor. The main entrance opens up to a wonderfully expansive lobby, fully secured and professional decorated with both stair and elevator access to the suites above and the parking garage below. The commercial units have no access to the residential apartments above and are being set up with concrete walkways and smoked glass entrances and professional looking sign boxes to compliment the overall look and luxury of the building. The light commercial services and shops are there to enhance and compliment the lifestyles of the residents above. Campanale Homes have been building lasting investments in Ottawa and the area for over three decades. Founders and brothers - Rocco, Tony and Vince started with a vision and desire to bring exceptional value and traditional craftsmanship to homes of varying sizes and styles. Like their experienced craftspeople that turn plans into the reality of inviting homes, Campanale planners took the same care

and skill to develop their community in the absolutely perfect Barrhaven location. It’s simply not enough for Campanale to be in the right location. The Station scores high in this area due to its walking proximity to the Longfields Transit station, and the many amenities Barrhaven has to offer. Responsible and trusted planners like Campanale develop a community so that early-built homes provide total property enjoyment while the rest of the development progresses. No Campanale homeowner will feel as if they’ve moved into a construction wasteland, due to the care that Campanale takes when crafting a neighborhood. With only 36 residential units available at The STATION, the Campanale team expects it won’t take long before The STATION sells out and in the Fall of 2015, they will be welcoming residents to their new homes, helping to make Longfields Station one of the fastest growing communities in Barrhaven. Campanale has reserved the ground floor of The STATION for light commercial, allowing for professional services that will enhance and compliment the lifestyle of the residents above and not interfere with their enjoyment of their new home.

Likewise the residents will enjoy the shops and services right at their fingertips. The types of businesses and offices allowed will

An in-unit utility room will be equipped to handle washers and dryers. Sizes will range from

be strictly controlled, as will their hours of operation. Entrances will be designed with security in mind and to the end that business and residential traffic will be separated. It’s Campanale’s aim to have high quality commercial occupants who would provide professional services that would be of benefit to the residents of The STATION and the local community, adding to the list

608 to almost 1159 square-feet with plenty of natural light through thermally efficient windows. As with any Campanale home you can expect premium finishes and treatments, as well as energy efficient appliances and all the amenities that have made award winner Campanale Homes one of the most respected builders in the region. Every condo-apartment will be

loaded with high-end features, including granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, ceramic tile and hardwood flooring, central air, high ceilings and so much more. What will surprise most everyone is that The STATION will be able to offer all this in an incredibly low price range of the low $250K’s to the $450K’s. Every unit will have a parking space and a storage locker at no extra cost. Campanale expect these luxury suites to sell out fast when The STATION is pre-launched this month, and early birds will definitely have the advantage of getting their pick of the new homes. The STATION, like the entire Longfields community, will appeal to a wide variety of home-seekers and investors. Empty nesters, seniors and young professionals alike will enjoy the freedom from property maintenance, and career minded types will love the executive-living lifestyle only steps from the transitway. Couples of all ages will appreciate the convenience of all the amenities located within walking distance of The STATION, including the many shops, schools, places of worship and recreation facilities. For those looking to enjoy the great outdoors, will revel in the availability of walking trails and bike paths and a world of sports fields and parks, directly across the street in South Nepean Park. The Longfields Station Sales Centre is open Monday through Thursday, from noon to 8 pm and from noon to 5 pm on weekends and holidays. You can call 613 440 3750 or visit www.campanale.com for more information. Don’t forget to drop by this Saturday December 14th at 10am for you special opportunity to own a piece of THE STATION.

Hydro rates to soar as province unveils Long Term Energy Plan

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli is seen speaking in Ottawa in early 2013. On Dec. 2, Chiarelli unveiled the province’s Long Term Energy Plan, which will see hydro rates increase 42 per cent over the next five years. wath. Under the new plan, the existing Industrial Electricity Incentive for large hydro users would continue, and the Northern Industrial Electric-

ity Rate Program would be extended to 2016. Any continuation of the clean energy benefit, set to expire at the end of 2015, would require “legislative changes” and “take into ac-

count a number of factors, including the province’s financial situation.” In keeping with the “conservation over generation” theme of the plan, the government plans to lower energy usage during excessive peak times (such as summer heat waves) by expanding demand response to participating businesses, thus lowering energy usage – and generation costs – during these times. Incentives for homeowners to upgrade the efficiency of their homes were floated in the plan, a move that would see the cost of retrofits applied to the homeowner’s hydro bill. Annual reports detailing the state and progress of the energy sector going forward are included in the plan. Like the home retrofit incentives, the plan contains a number of tentative ideas for future consideration. These moves could have an impact on rates. Among them is the consideration of importing clean energy from neighbouring jurisdictions.

News - Ontario residents can expect to continue paying more for electricity, even after years of significant rate increases. That was the key information contained within the province’s LongTerm Energy Plan, which was announced by Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli on Dec. 2. Released every three years, the plan maps out the chosen generation methods for the province’s energy requirements while forecasting how that generation will impact rates going forward. The 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan had little good news for those hoping for a reprieve on their bills. Rates are forecast to increase dramatically in the next several years, to the tune of 42 per cent by 2018, a figure which includes the scheduled removal of the 10 per cent Ontario Clean Energy Benefit. For an average home using 800 kilowatt hours of hydro per month, this would mean monthly bills would rise from $125 to $178 by 2018. By 2032, the end of the plan’s time frame, this bill would be $210. Chiarelli stressed the projections from this plan are lower than that of the 2010 plan due to measures taken to lower the cost of electricity generation. A number of actions, including scrapping plans to build new nuclear capacity and changes to an agreement with Samsung – the contract at the heart of the 2009 Green Energy Act are among the mitigating factors taken in the past year to rein in rate inflation. “This plan reflects what we heard from thousands of people and dozens of organizations right across the province,” Chiarelli said in a statement. “Our vision for Ontario is to create a clean, affordable and reliable energy system that focuses on conservation and addresses regional needs.” Under the 2013 plan, Ontario will continue to pursue renewable energy generation options, meaning more subsidized wind and solar, as well as increased hydroelectric generation. Coal-powered generation will be phased out by the end of 2013, and with plans for new nuclear capacity cancelled, production from that sector will eventually represent less than half of the province’s power mix. Opposition parties, who had been turning up the heat on the governing Liberals in recent months over hydro rates, spoke out following the release of the plan. In legislature, Progressive Conservative energy critic Lisa MacLeod dubbed the document a “short-term energy plan,” saying the government “has a lot of nerve to come into the assembly and tell Ontarians they are not going to be paying as much originally projected.” MacLeod cited the continuing loss of manufacturing jobs in the province as a product of the province’s energy policies. “According to many of the stakeholders I have spoken to, the LTEP is nothing more than a candy store – something for everyone – procuring 300 megawatts of wind and 140 mega-

watts of solar in 2014 and 2015, even though the province does not need the power,” said MacLeod. “(Ratepayers) are tired of it, they can’t afford it, they want it to stop.” New Democratic Party leader Andrea Horwath said in a release that the latest energy plan was the government’s way of distracting voters from its own past policy decisions. “The Liberal government is scrambling to take some long overdue steps today, but they’re still on the same old path that’s left Ontarians with the highest hydro bills in the country,” said Horwath. Horwath said that off-peak hydro rates – which consumers were encouraged to take advantage of – have risen 40 per cent since the last energy plan in 2010, while overall hydro bills have doubled since the Liberals took office. “This doesn’t cut it for families who were expecting real relief from bills that keep climbing,” stated Hor-

The chamber will present a cheque to the food cupboard with all the funds raised during an upcoming breakfast meeting.

Pakenham does Christmas country-style The Pakenham Country Christmas was a hit Nov. 30 with a variety of events taking place throughout the village. Children enjoyed a reindeer hunt, breakfast with Santa, wrote letters to Santa and even had lunch with him. Also featured were artists Kevin Dodds and Daisy Mae Lennox, pony rides, and story time and crafts at the library. A tree-lighting ceremony capped the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events. Portia Ferguson, 8, and her friend Allie Corrigan, 9, both are asking Santa for iPod Minis in their letters to Santa. Mortgan Russell, 10, is thoughtful with his letter.

Clayton woman needs community’s help; fundraiser is set for Dec. 14 Tara Gesner tgesner@perfprint.ca

Community – “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” A fundraiser will be held next month in aid of a Clayton woman suffering from pulmonary fibrosis, leaving her breathless and dependent on oxygen. Dew Rotor, only 33-years-old, is permanently hospitalized at the Toronto General Hospital (TGH) until she receives a lifesaving double-lung transplant. Close Rotor family friend, Terry Garwood, says it was earlier this month that Dew learned her lungs have failed to the point that she must stay at the health-care facility until she receives her transplant. “It is not known how long it will take to find an organ donor,” said Garwood. Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic disease that results in scarring of the lungs. The scar tissue replaces healthy tissue and causes inflammation. This damage causes the lungs to stiffen and makes breathing increasingly difficult. Less than 10 per cent of Dew’s lungs are still functioning and even the functioning parts of her lungs are severely compromised. “In August, the transplant team at the Toronto General Hospital put Dew on the list for a double-lung transplant,” said Gar-

Clayton’s Dew Rotor, with her mother and sole caregiver (Leslirae Rotor), is currently in Toronto waiting for a double-lung transplant. A fundraiser on her behalf will take place Dec. 14 in the Carleton Place arena, or visit www. Life4Dew.ca to donate. wood. TGH has become the undisputed world leader in lung transplantation. Ottawa native Hélène Campbell received her doublelung transplant at TGH in April 2012. Her story became public after she reached out to celebrities including Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres to raise awareness about the need for organ donations while awaiting

her surgery. On Aug. 11, Dew and her mother (Leslirae Rotor) moved from their home in Clayton to an area near Guelph to be within the required two-hour radius of TGH. They have lived in Mississippi Mills for the last eight years. However, now that Dew is unable to leave TGH until her transplant, Leslirae must now find accommodation in the city as soon as possible, while maintaining the family home in Clayton. “I am worried about them,” said Garwood. “They are barely coping financially.” What’s more, TGH requires the mother and daughter to live in Toronto for a minimum of three months post transplant, which will add additional expense. People First of Lanark County (PFoLC), along with Garwood, are spearheading a Dec. 14 fundraiser to help cover costs for Dew and her mother: accommodation, meals (the hospital cannot meet Dew’s requirements for a specialized diet), medical, transportation, moving expenses, the list goes on. The fundraiser – Life4Dew – takes place from 7 to midnight at the Carleton Place Arena (upstairs hall). There will be live music, raffle draw, refreshments and more. Admission is a $10 donation to the cause.

Ward 5 West Carleton-March HIDDEN LAKE TRAIL PARK In my previous column on November 7, 2013, I updated residents on the status of the Hidden Lake Trail Park, which is located in the Hidden Lake Crescent area of Carp. This is a park of 5.75 hectares in size and is identified as an area of natural and scientific interest by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Over last several weeks, work has been done in this area to do selective tree clearing necessary for the installation of a stone dust trail, which is now nearing completion. The trail system will allow public access into the site to enjoy the natural features of the site while minimizing the environmental impact. It has been brought to my attention that there are a lot of tire tracks from ATVs along the trail. I would like to remind residents that no motorized vehicles are allowed on this trail. The City’s By-Law Department will be installing signage to remind residents of this.

RICHCRAFT RECREATION CENTRE – KANATA IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS On Thursday, December 5 I attended the grand opening of the new $43 million Richcraft Recreation Centre – Kanata (RRCK).

The 90,000 square foot building includes a 25-metre eight-lane indoor pool, a leisure therapeutic pool, two full gymnasiums, fitness and cardio centre and several multi-purpose rooms. Outdoor features incorporate play areas for children - including water play, a basketball court, a skate park and a full-sized, lighted sports field with artificial turf. The complex was built to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) GOLD standards including a number of green features that promote energy efficiency and reduced water use. Go to ottawa.ca to take a look at all that this great facility has to offer. If you’d like to sign up for programming, the RRCK’s program guide is posted on the home page of my website under the “Latest News” section.

City to draw up plans to allow buildings taller than four storeys in west-end tech park Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Saying the needs of Kanata businesses are more important than the city’s needs, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson was successful in getting the city to reconsider building-height limits in the tech park. The tech park and also the Kanata South Business Park were exempted from policies that would have restricted businesses to building only four storeys. The policy is intended to allow taller, denser buildings to be constructed near rapid transit lines like the bus Transitway and the future light-rail line. Major office developments would only be allowed in business parks if they were built within 800 metres of an existing or planned rapid transit station or within 400 m of a transit priority corridor. Those rules still apply to all other business parks outside Kanata since council approved the new Official Plan on Nov. 26. The exemption hinges on council adopting of a secondary plan and zoning amendments for those two business parks before 2015. The public will be consulted during the develop-

ment of the secondary plans. Wilkinson worried that new policies in the city’s updated Official Plan would have stunted development possibilities in the remaining vacant lands in the tech park. “The park couldn’t have been built today if you had those restrictions,” Wilkinson said. The policies would have placed “significant restrictions” on undeveloped employment lands in the tech park as most of the vacant properties are more than 800 m from rapid transit, Kanata North Business Improvement Area executive director Jenna Sudds told the planning committee on Nov. 8. “These new policies send a message that Ottawa is closed to creativity,” she said. The undeveloped lands aren’t located near residences so there is no argument for restricting building heights there, Sudds said. Construction flexibility is one of the key ingredients needed to attract businesses to Ottawa, Wilkinson said. “It needs to be clear, but flexible for the needs of businesses,” she said. Those needs are sometimes different than the city’s overall goals, she said. Once a large corporation decides it wants

to locate in Ottawa, bigwigs often want to get a building up in six months, which doesn’t leave time to make arguments for rezoning the land. With that kind of restrictive environment and red tape, companies would find it easier to look elsewhere, Wilkinson said. “(City transportation planners) want everyone to take transit,” Wilkinson said. “To them, getting everyone to take transit is the most important thing.” But for the councillor, job creation is more

important. “We want to have jobs in the community.” Changes to the new policy were a lastminute addition to council’s approval of the Official Plan because the councillor didn’t anticipate new development restrictions. The transit-oriented policies were discovered by a consultant hired by the Kanata North BIA to comb through the plans. “It’s not something I expected,” Wilkinson said. “That’s a big difference.”

Donate old vehicles to fire service News - Ottawa Fire Services respond to thousands of emergencies each year that involve extricating drivers and passengers from vehicles after a collision. Often there are serious injuries and before a victim can be removed, firefighters must use specialized tools and techniques to remove parts of the

vehicle from around the accident victim. As part of Ottawa Fire Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; training program, firefighters take part in training sessions which use scrap vehicles usually donated or obtained from a recycler. Ottawa Fire Services have implemented a program to facilitate the donation of

scrap vehicles directly to the Fire Service for training purposes in exchange for a $500 tax receipt (as you would receive for other charitable donations). To donate a vehicle to the program, please visit ottawa. ca/fire or call 613-580-2424 ext. 29341 for more information.

reported Algoma-Manitoulin MPP Michael Mantha to the provincial legislature last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Needless to say, snowmobile clubs do not have the funds to cover property taxes for hydro corridors, and there is now talk that the province wants the cash-strapped municipalities to cover the cost in an effort to download.â&#x20AC;?

Diefenbunker tour recognized as new Canadian experience

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Energy protest A large crowd of protesters gathered outside Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carling Avenue constituency office on Dec. 7, angry over the massive hydro rate hikes announced by Chiarelli earlier in the week. The provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Long Term Energy Plan calls for electricity bills to rise by 42 per cent within five years, on top of the already significant increases seen over the past few years. The protesters stated the hikes will effect the economy, with the hardest hit being elderly and low-income residents, as well as business owners.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought the right pillow could make such a difference in my life. A few years ago I received whiplash and went to physio for a year.

Robillards turn on tree lights at Arnprior hospital John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – A large crowd showed their appreciation for their community hospital by taking part in the Arnprior Regional Health’s Partners in Caring Christmas tree-lighting Dec. 6. The 14th annual tree-lighting raises money for equipment at the Arnprior District Regional Hospital and the Grove Nursing Home. While no final figures have been announced for this year’s campaign, it was noted that about $160,000 has been raised by past tree-lightings. Residents buy a light in memory of a friend or loved one, or in honour of a staff member who has provided excellent care to a family member. The lights are place on the trees I front of the hospital and after being turned on at the special ceremony shine throughout the Christmas season. Funds raised this year will go towards supporting the youngest and oldest members of the community. They will be allocated toward the buying of a baby scale for the hospital’s emergency department and a ceiling lift for the Grove. The family of Moe and Lois Robillard had the honour of turning on the lights this year. The elder Robillards, who passed away in the last 18 months, were strong supporters of the hospital and had a long history of volunteer service in Arnprior and area. They were represented at the ceremony by three of their eight children – Debbie Pierce, Leanne Krieger and Nicole Murray – as well as grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Also fondly remembered was their daughter, Marie, who died recently after working for 30 years at the hospital. She was remembered for her

compassion and professionalism. Moe Robillard was a Korean War veteran who was actively involved in the Arnprior Legion for 37 years, the Knights of Columbus and the local sports scene. Lois was also an enthusiastic volunteer with the Catholic Women’s League, the seniors club and the Harvest Festival. She was proud to be Arnprior’s Silver Cross Mother in 2012. They ran Robillard Plumbing and Heating for years. The family was called up to the podium to throw the light switch. Special guest entertainer was 10year-old Walter Zadow student and Main Street School of Music trained singer Ainsley Phillips who sang three Christmas songs. Among the others taking a turn at the podium was ARH CEO Eric The crowd turns to see the sight as the Robillard family turn on the lights at the Arnprior Regional Health’s Hanna, Partners in Caring Chair Lori tree-lighting ceremony last Friday.

211 celebrates five years in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario News – 211 Eastern Ontario, and its partners, are celebrating five years of connecting people to the right community and social services. Since 2008, 211 Eastern Ontario has answered more than 200,000 calls for information about and referral to 56,000 community, health and social programs and services. Partners including United Way Ottawa and the City of Ottawa were instrumental in Bringing the 211 service to Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. To help continue to raise awareness of this important community service, 211 Eastern Ontario has enlisted the help of Councillor Mathieu Fleury and a number of community leaders and Eastern Ontario agencies. “Our goal is for 211 to become as ubiquitous as 911 for non emergency community, health and social services,” said Marie Andrée Carrière, executive director of the Community Information Centre of Ottawa, the organization that delivers the 211 service in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. “For years, United Way Ottawa, with the help of many community partners, worked to bring 211 to the city and surrounding areas,” said Michael Allen, president and CEO, United Way Ottawa. “Today, as we mark its fifth anniversary, we also reflect on the thousands of lives it has helped to change in our community by connecting people in their time of need with vital programs and services.We are proud to support the work of 211 in Ottawa.” Callers to 211, and visitors to 211Ontario.ca,can access information about food banks, school supplies, non emergency medical transportation, tax services, and immigration support. They can also use the number to report elder abuse, get Alzheimer support, find recovery programs for addictions, and much more. The 211 service is free, confidential available in English, French and 150 additional languages, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. “As we celebrate this important milestone, we thank our partners for their support thus far, and look forward to working with them in the coming years to continue to raise awareness of this vital community resource in Ottawa and all of Eastern Ontario,” said Carrière. Last year, United Way donors helped contribute more than $134,000 to the work of 211 by donating directly to United Way Ottawa. The community can help support the 211 service in Ottawa by making a contribution to this year’s campaign through their workplace or online at

www.unitedwayottawa.ca ABOUT 211 In 2001, the Canadian Radio television Telecommunications Commission assigned 211 for toll free information and referral to community, social, health and government services.

In 2002, the first Canadian 211 was launched in Toronto. Ottawa’s 211 was introduced in 2008 under the leadership of United Way Ottawa. Most provinces now offer 211 service, reaching approximately 60 per cent of Canadians. 211 is funded by the Province of Ontario, individual municipalities, and local United Ways.

NOVEMBER 27th

ABOUT 211 EASTERN ONTARIO. The 211 service is delivered, across Ontario, by seven service providers and over 35 data providers. The Community Information Centre of Ottawa (CICO) is the organization responsible for delivering the 211 services in Eastern Ontario.

Drug costs likely to skyrocket under CETA Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A study shows prescription drug users who can least afford it will be hardest hit by the trade deal with Europe. A Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives examination predicts between $850 million and $1.65 billion a year will be added to the cost of prescription drugs in Canada if the trade deal includes longer patents - of up to two years - for brand name pharmaceuticals, along with other rules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a one-way cave-in (or a big give-away?) to big pharma with no beneďŹ ts to Canada,â&#x20AC;? reads a release on the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whether in the form of promised jobs or new innovation from European drug companies, which stand to make a lot of money from the unnecessary patent changes.â&#x20AC;? The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) was hailed as a major accomplishment by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. But since its announcement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; critics say timed to divert attention from the senate scandal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; few details have been released.

Both the Liberals and New Democrats support a trade agreement with Europe, but they fear Harper gave away too much from Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side to get the deal done when it served political purposes. And the longer details are withheld, the more they fear the worst. Ottawa Centre NDP MP Paul Dewar said, when it comes to prescription drugs, the federal government offered to help provinces offset higher costs, but that only helps those who access provincial services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are too many people left out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And those are the people that need help the most.â&#x20AC;? He favours a deal because the European Union will expect Canada to meet the social democracy-dominated groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s labour, environmental and human rights standards. But until Harper releases details rather than â&#x20AC;&#x153;paternalisticâ&#x20AC;? proclamations that CETA is good for Canada, Dewar remains wary. He dismisses oft-made claims that CETA is the biggest trade deal in Canadian history; NAFTA was much bigger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there was much more openness with when NAFTA was being debated,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that European elected represen-

tatives were given many more details than Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The federal government didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the lead on this either as has been frequently claimed, Dewar said; former Quebec premier Jean Charest worked on it for many months before that. He agreed that both sides give something up when it comes to trade deals. His worry is that Canadians arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t informed enough to prepare for sacriďŹ ces four or ďŹ ve years in the future. Former federal Liberal leadership contender Karen McCrimmon, who intends to run for Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP, said if Harper won jobs and other concessions from the Europeans he would have announced it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harper needed some good news so badly Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid he might have given away the farm,â&#x20AC;? McCrimmon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be like the corporate tax cuts: We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require investments or jobs. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost money.â&#x20AC;? She wonders what was given up by not consulting Canadians and by timing the announcement for political reasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we even know the half of it,â&#x20AC;? McCrimmon said. Carleton-Mississippi Mills Conservative MP Gordon

Beaverbrook to be studied for heritage status Neighbourhood would be Ottawa and Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;modernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heritage district Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The City of Ottawa will be taking another look at â&#x20AC;&#x153;modernâ&#x20AC;? heritage after committing to study a possible heritage district for Beaverbrook. The study, which was approved as part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ cial Plan update, has yet to get underway, but it follows on the footsteps of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designation of a clutch of mid-century modern homes in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east end in March of this year. That district, called the Briarcliffe heritage conservation district, is believed to be the ďŹ rst group of modern homes in Canada to be designated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;heritage.â&#x20AC;? The global experience of looking at more modern buildings

for their historical value is much broader, said Gary Sealey, president of the Beaverbrook Community Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience is growing to recognize the character of these distinct communities, there are other experiences over North America and around the world upon which we can draw,â&#x20AC;? Sealey said. Beaverbrook is one of the Kanata communities originally envisioned by developer and planner Bill Teron, who has been called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;father of Kanata.â&#x20AC;? Teron was awarded the Jane Jacobs Lifetime Achievement Award this year and is also a recipient of the Order of Canada. The idea is not to freeze or restrict development potential in the neighbourhood, Sealey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to guide evolution of Beaverbrook based on its

based on its established character,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea is not to fossilize the community but to be true to its valued principles.â&#x20AC;? The push for a Beaverbrook heritage district study was backed by a petition signed by 400 residents, Sealey said. The study is expected to cost $200,000 to complete, at which point consultants and city staff would make a recommendation on whether the city should seek heritage district designation for the area. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, who sits on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built heritage subcommittee, dissented on the motion approving the study because he said he had been told it could be completed for $40,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much cheaper than the $200,000 the city is anticipating paying.

Winter preparation was a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work at the old log house Lifestyle - We knew winter was finally closing in around us. The old log house was getting ready for the cold blasts, freezing days and nights, and mountains of high snow. Soon the 20-acre field would be covered, and Father would have to break a track so that we could still get over to our neighbours, Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha Thomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, with the sleigh and our team of horses. Father had to wait for the first big dump of snow, and know that it was going to stay, before he got the outside of the house ready. It would take more than a day, but when he was finished packing snow around the foundation, I was sure the house was warmer. But Mother was convinced nothing could take the chill off the icy floors. Inside, she did all she could to prepare us for the long cold days ahead. Blanket-stitched felt slippers, handmade after Aunt Bertha instructed Mother on how to sew them, were at the

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories MARY COOK

ready. All the braided rugs had been taken from under the beds, and laid out all over the house. The front door would not be opened again until spring, regardless who came calling. And in the kitchen the storm door had been attached in an effort to keep out the cold north winds that always seemed to rattle the windows as it swept across the yard and hit our house with force. Mother encouraged us, once the snow was there to stay, to enter the house through the summer kitchen. We were expected to stomp our feet thoroughly on the way in, and once inside we took off our boots and they were

lined up like soldiers on still another braided rug beside the wood box that sat next to the Findlay Oval. We all wore felt inner soles, and they were removed and propped against a block of wood to dry out overnight. Both the back door and the one coming in from the summer kitchen would have smaller braided rugs rolled tight, and placed tight against the closed doors, in the hope that more of the winter drafts would be kept outside. But the biggest job of all was yet to come. It would take Mother hours. We would go off to the Northcote School one morning, and come home to see ev-

ery window downstairs plugged tight with worn-out work socks and strips of cloth from the rag bag. Using a butcher knife to cram the strips into the window frame, she made sure the windows were as wind-proof as possible. And as tightly as she could cram in the scraps of material, you could run your hand around the window frame and still feel the draft. Once the winter was there to stay, every window pane in the house would frost up and turn white, and we could no longer see outside. Unless I engaged in one of my favourite pastimes in the winter, and that was taking a nail and scratching designs on the frosted pane, or holding my thumb in the one spot until I had created a small hole, through which I could see a smidgen of the outdoors. The only heat in the house came from the kitchen cook stove, and the silver enamelled pipes that snaked through the kitchen, escaped through a hole

Quiltersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gift In the spirit of giving, the ladies of the Arnprior and District Quiltersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Guild (ADQG) have made the table settings of those who receive â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hot Meals On Wheelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a little brighter this season. Guild president Anne Cruickshank, left, and vice-president Mary Devries present 20 beautifully quilted placemats to Dennis Harrington, executive director of Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home and director of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hot Meals on Wheelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; program. The program is administered by Seniors at Home with the meals prepared by and at The Grove delivered by its volunteer drivers.

in the ceiling, going through what passed for a bedroom shared by my sister and me, and finally feeding out into the chimney and the roof of the house. By the time the pipe reached upstairs, there was very little heat left to do much more than take the bitter chill off the bedroom. Our kitchen would take on a whole new appearance in the winter as well. The old pine table would have to be moved from in front of the window, over to a side wall, the bake table moved to the space left by the pine table, the wood box moved closer to the summer kitchen door, and the creton couch put at an angle. If this grand exchange did not take place, anyone sitting on the bench behind the table for a meal, would be chilled to the bone from the window, in spite of the effort Mother put into keeping out the winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft. During the winter months, prayers were said in the kitchen instead of upstairs. And we five children all vied for the spot beside the stove pipe upstairs to change into our pyjamas. And it was a fast change indeed. If it was a bitterly cold

night, Mother would have put the hot water bottle in my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and my bed, and wrapped bricks, which had been heated on the Findlay Oval, for the brothers. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the bottle or the bricks to cool off, but by the time our bodies had burrowed into the feather tickings between the flannelette sheets, we were as cozy as bugs. And the howling winds outside could have been blowing in some other county. And the last thing I would hear before I fell asleep would be Father stoking the Findlay Oval. I would hear the lid of the firebox being scraped open, and I could picture in my mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye, Father cramming in a log of wood, and I would hear the crackle as it caught fire. And I would have the most contented feeling of peace as the heat of the stove rose through the silver pipes in our bedroom. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a great heat, but I knew it would be enough to keep us from freezing in our beds, and would keep warm our morning clothes, which Audrey and I had draped on a chair beside the pipe. And I would fall asleep feeling an inner warmth that made everything right in my world.

City to study pawn shop regulations Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

Countdown to

News - Ottawa is taking another look at whether it should license pawnbrokers. That option will be on the table as city staff study how effective the provincial pawnbroker legislation is – and how well the city is administering it compared to other municipalities. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who brought forward the issue, said the Pawnbrokers Act is outdated, making it difficult for the city to enforce. Part of the problem is that privacy legislation prevents the city from looking through a pawn shop’s records, even if the shop is found to have knowingly or unknowingly sold a stolen item. “They can only look item through item based on complaints due to privacy,” Fleury said. “We’re not allowing our enforcement bodies to be able to enforce these books.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said the system worked better when the city had a policy to collect identification information from people who sell items to pawnbrokers. In 2007, the city received an order from the provincial privacy commissioner to stop collecting that information from “secondhand goods sellers,” but city lawyer Valerie Bietlot said the same restriction may not be applied to gathering it from pawnbrokers. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said governments should reconsider how they apply privacy legislation to things like pawn shops and stores that sell used goods. “This is quick becoming one of my biggest pet peeves,” he said. “The privacy act was not brought in to protect people reselling stolen goods.” On Dec. 5, the community and protective services committee directed city staff to consult with police and other municipalities to review how the Ontario Pawnbrokers Act is being applied and whether there are ways the city can tighten up enforcement, or whether the city should lobby the province for changes to the act.

Rideau Centre facade gets approval from NCC board Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A new façade proposed for the Rideau Centre has been granted approval by the National Capital Commission. Cadillac Fairview, owner of the downtown shopping centre, proposed changes that will affect the facade on portions of Rideau Street, Colonel By Drive, Nicholas Street and McKenzie King Bridge. NCC staff presented the latest plans along with a recommendation to its executive board on Nov. 20. The proposed plans were well received by the board and were unanimously approved. “It is sure a big improvement over what we have now,” said Russell Mills, board chairman. According to the staff report, the reconstruction of the facade

along with new store fronts is expected to have a significant impact on the capital experience and promote increased street activity. Conceptual plans for the new facade were submitted to NCC staff a year ago and presented to the board in April 2013. The conceptual images show a revamped Rideau Street and Mackenzie King entrances, an updated pedestrian bridge between the shopping centre and the Hudson’s Bay store on the opposite side of Rideau, and a new garage entrance on Nicholas Street. The commission does not own the land, but a restrictive covenant was part of the 1981 sale to then-owners of the property, the Viking Rideau Corporation, which states any alterations to the exterior or new structures built are subject to the approval of the NCC. The covenant affects the facade along Rideau Street and Sussex Avenue, Colonel By Drive, portions of Nicholas Street, portions of Mackenzie King Bridge and the rooftop terrace near the bridge. Leading up to the approval, board members raised some concern about signage and whether those designs should be either approved now or at a later date. NCC staffer Fred Gaspere confirmed conversations about signage were ongoing with the Cadillac Fairview. Board member Jason Sordi asked whether plans would affect or work well with other city plans for the area, including updating transit for the downtown location. According to Gaspere, the NCC is also working with the city and federal government to ensure streetscaping and transit are being considered as the project moves forward. The board approved the plans with the following conditions: * The project exterior signage must be developed further and in accordance to NCC guidelines for naming and signage which are currently in progress and signage drawings must be reviewed by the NCC for approval. * The proponent must provide a detailed construction schedule for the overall project to the NCC for review to help ensure that the project is advanced in a manner that doesn’t impact

Make a difference in the life of a senior by volunteering Liz Wall Seniors at Home

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Volunteers are the reason the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home (ABMSH) agency has been successful since opening in 1980. They are the reason Seniors at Home is able to continue to offer seniors age 60 and over and those with special needs, no matter the age, a variety of programs designed to encourage independent living and enhance their quality of life. ABMSH continues to grow and so does the need for volunteers. The agency is presently putting out a call for volunteers in the areas of: reception, delivery of Meals on Wheels, telephone security, friendly visiting, foot clinic and income tax preparation. If you would like to become a part of the team, a team that makes a huge difference in the lives of those they serve, following is a brief description of the above mentioned programs that are in need of volunteer help. Reception - Volunteer receptionists work Monday to Friday one day a week, either the morning shift of 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or the afternoon shift of 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The main duties include answering the phone, dispatching drivers, assisting staff requests and greeting the public (Lisa Bottomley).

LIZ WALL/SUBMITTED

Volunteer receptionist Alexis Barr, left, and Sylvia Patterson both donate their time to the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home program on Fridays, Barr the morning shift and Patterson the afternoon. Both are dedicated volunteers and enjoy being a part of the team. Seniors at Home is seeking more volunteers for a variety of roles. Meals on Wheels - Volunteers are required to deliver hot meals to designated clients one day a week from 11 a.m. to noon. The meals are prepared by the kitchen staff of The Grove nursing home. Drivers are required to pick up at The Grove and deliver to the individualsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes (Lisa Bottomley or Patti Jennings). Telephone Security - A dedicated volunteer is carefully linked with a

client. The volunteers spend the required time as requested by the client encouraging and reassuring them of any concerns they may have of loneliness or isolation. These particular volunteers may call daily, weekly or as often as the client wishes (Lisa Bottomley). Friendly Visiting - As a friendly visiting volunteer, you would be matched with a client wishing to have

someone visit them in their home on a regularly basis. After the relationship is formed, you may want to go for a walk, go out for coffee at a local establishment or any activity that encourages social integration into the community for the client. You are their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and in many cases a lifetime of friendship is created (Lisa Bottomley).

RWC Crusaders Major Peewee win big in Syracuse Sports - The Major Peewee Crusaders families headed to Syracuse for some great hockey at the 5th Annual Syracuse Blazers Thanksgiving Hockey Tournament on Nov. 28. With the team having prepared for the longer games and bigger ice surfaces, the players were ready to go to take on any challenge. Game one took place on Friday, Nov. 29 at the Onondaga Nation Arena, an Olympic size surface. The Crusaders were opening the tournament against the host team, The Syracuse Blazers. With a solid start to the game the boys came together and earned their 3-1 win to start the tournament off on the right foot. Game two was on Friday evening, this time against a familiar rival, the Kanata Blazers. The game was again held on the Olympic ice surface, this time at the Cicero Twin Rinks. It was another hard fought battle against two familiar teams, and with a goal called back and outshooting their opponent 36-12, the Crusaders skated off the ice with a 2-2 tie. Game three, played early Saturday morning saw the boys again on the Olympic ice pad facing a team from New Hartford. Another exciting hockey game with back and forth play for the first period before the Crusaders opened up the flood gates to take the game 6-2. This game was a great test of heart and conditioning for the Crusaders group as the New Hartford team never quit and the game was much closer than the score leads to believe. Game four, Saturday night and finally on an NHL size ice surface, the boys, recovering now from a hard fought game in the morning and an

Long Island. With the atmosphere in the stands being electric both teams took to the ice and put on a display of fantastic minor hockey. This was a true back and forth game, two very equal teams on the ice and the game was one of Championship status.

With the Crusaders falling to Nassau 2-1, it was enough to get them thru to the finals, and as it would turn out, the Saturday night game would turn into a Sunday afternoon rematch. Sunday saw the Nassau City Lions again set to face the RWC Crusaders, with the tournament on the line and the end goal of the team in site, the players really came together and put on a outstanding display of dominate hockey. The Crusaders shut down the Lions offence and played with focus, desire and heart! The penalty kill was outstanding and with Allan Millerwood stopping their star player on a penalty shot, sticking to the game plan and with every player focusing on their role, the Crusaders took the championship by a score of 4-1. The team would like to thank all of their sponsor’s, parents and families for their support and the coaches would like to thank the players for their belief in the end goal and recognizing the payback of hard work, positive energy and playing the ‘team’ game.

Ringette win The Tween B â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Thingsâ&#x20AC;? Ringette team won gold the recent CORA tournament, in Ottawa. The team won two of their three games heading into the finals.The team was down 2-1 at the end of the first period, but came back to win the final game with a score of 5-2 over the Nepean Ravens team. Pictured are (back row) coach Cynthia McMinn, Coach Jane Blinn, (middle row) coach Mike Smith, Lisa McMinn, Tracy Hicks, Scott Quintal, Katie Crawford, Hannah Blinn, Brooklyn Smith, coach Ron Moore, Trainer Deb Quintal and (front row) Michelle Roberts, Alli Quintal, Brittany Leger, Megan Kozak and Avery McIntosh.

Community - The newly opened Richcraft Recreation Complex Kanata is looking for youth input on the types of activities theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do what they want to do,â&#x20AC;? said Sarah Hanniman, supervisor of youth programming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to go to Calypso, then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go.â&#x20AC;? Hanniman will host a youth forum at the recreation centre on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 1 to 2 p.m. for youths ages 11 to 17. But the age limits arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to turn anyone down,â&#x20AC;? because of their age, she said. The complex is offering a number of drop-ins, both sports and recreational, dur-

ing December. But Hanniman said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that staff know what the youth want in terms of programming for the following months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of the youth forum is to give youth the opportunity to voice their opinion and share their ideas for the youth room,â&#x20AC;? she said. TEEN SPACE Marianneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth Room is a space entirely devoted to teens. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offering drop-ins on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and Fridays from 5 to 8 p.m. in December. Two dinner and a movie nights are scheduled for Dec. 13 and 20. The room currently has couches and a large screen television â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and lots of room

to add to, said Hanniman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to get some games tables,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding youth who attend the forum can request certain types. An Xbox game console is also on the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have ownership of this room,â&#x20AC;? said Hanniman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be theirs. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always welcome.â&#x20AC;? The youth room is also attached to the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen so there are opportunities to learn how to cook and bake if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the youth want, said Hanniman. Other ideas on the types of programming that could be offered are CPR classes, how to write resumes, summer camps, field trips, drop-ins and sports classes.

Education.

Lifestyle.

After 10 years working in Kanata as a fitness trainer, former Canadian Olympic bobsledder, John Sokolowski, recognized that too many of his clients werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t connecting the dots between weight-loss and nutrition and, as a result, had trouble reaching their health goals. Many of them incorrectly believed that they could power their way to a specific weight-loss target with high intensity and frequent work-outs alone. What they were failing to grasp is that weight loss is, as John puts it, 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. So, after searching for an appropriate resource to help his growing clientbase, John has opened Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Simply for Life clinic at 80 Terence Matthews Crescent in Kanata, just in time for those needing help facing the holiday feasting season. Simply for Life clinics have been helping people in Canada for years and John was impressed by the simplicity and accountability of their programmes. First, Simply for Life (SFL) uses real food that members have no trouble finding at their favourite grocery or food store. There are no powders, pills, exotic herbs, or rare grains. Nor are there any special cooking techniques to learn, or foreign utensils and equipment to buy. Instead, SFL members receive instruction on how to finally succeed in their health improvement goals: through lifestyle change. SFL team members provide common sense meal-planning that is easy to follow, even with hectic schedules and reduced leisure time.

Equally as important as SFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no-gimmick approach to food selection is their helpful practice of accountability. New members are invited to attend the SFL clinic on a weekly basis for a 15 minute visit with their counselor. Any difficulties experienced during the previous week are worked through to help prevent the risk of derailing the clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey to health. It also gives members a chance to receive helpful nutrition tips and advice, and reinforces SFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenet of providing help when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed.

SFL is based on the premise that a credible and responsible organization that promotes improved personal health and fitness must advocate for a lifestyle change, rather than a â&#x20AC;&#x153;quick-fixâ&#x20AC;? diet or regimen. To provide even more to their members, SFL also offers stress management as a part of their counseling. Under Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership and in-depth knowledge of fitness and well-being, those who have joined to date are already reaping the rewards and are actually looking forward to meeting the seasonal challenges ahead! You can reach John or any member of the SFL team by calling 613-591-FOOD (3663) or by email at info. kanata@simplyforlife.com. Check them out on Facebook by searching for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Simply for Life Kanataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. They are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. R0012460693
