Spirit of giving felt during basket deliveries Inside

Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

drought line, a thin strip from up past Cobden through to West Carleton, the regular rains and timely September rains didn’t come last summer. North Gower is an example that fell outside the line, with milk producers in that area getting by with timely rains. Here in Fitzroy, cracks formed in the ground that would have taken a month of rain to fill in. July saw twoand-a-quarter inches of rain; July saw less than an inch. It forced him to feed winter hay to cows in July. After going through all eight sections of his fields, the first still hadn’t seen re-growth. The upshot? He usually has 30 cows. Four were put down.

EMC news – Picture this. A family sits down for Christmas dinner, a turkey ready to be carved, with vegetables steaming in their dishes. All thanks to the West Carleton Emergency Food Aid and its Christmas basket program. If it weren’t for the organization, says volunteer Brenda Lobb of Carp, there would be no Christmas dinner for these families. St. James Parish in Carp was a beehive of activity last Friday morning as volunteers and parish members carried in boxes of non-perishable food items and other supplies. Despite the treacherous weather conditions, and the delay in trucks arriving with turkeys and produce from Stittsville’s Brown’s Independent Grocer, the mood was light and joyful inside the parish hall as volunteers sipped coffee to wait for the truck’s arrival. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry joined in loading and unloading boxes into cars. Pizza was due to arrive at noon for hungry and hardworking volunteers, who patiently waited for further instruction. In previous years, volunteers would show up at the church around 8:30 a.m. and the work would be done at around 1 or 2 p.m. For the volunteers, giving back is what makes them return year after year to help those in need. “The best part about it is that we offer support to those in the community who need help,� said Lobb. “It’s the season of giving. It’s very satisfying and nice to know we are doing something wonderful to help them.� Lobb has been volunteering her time for the special occasion for the past ten years, and calls Carp a very giving community.

EMC news – It was a fine Christmas present they received at Harbour Hill Charolais farm this year. Willy O’Rourke, president of Fitzroy Beef Farmers, was among the lucky few to have his name drawn for a truckload - 32 bails in all - of hay from out west. “Christmas came early this year,� is what O’Rourke said when he got the call informing him that his remaining cows will make it through winter. There were 300 Ontario farmers who applied for relief, with 90 loads coming to the Valley. His brother Tom came over to the Newtown Road farmer from his nearby farm, outside Fitzroy Harbour, to check out the load sitting in a field near cows, horses and other animals that will benefit. “This should be your good news Christmas

story of the season,� Tom said, laughing when his brother explained that a tarp was over the hay because it was “too valuable not to cover.�

This should be your good news Christmas story of the season. TOM O’ROURKE, FARMER

Valuable is right. Valley farmers normally pay about 3 cents a pound for hay. This year, if it can be found at all thanks to last summer’s drought, hay is going for 12 cents. Although Harbour Hill is primarily a beef farm, O’Rourke’s first cut of 2011 yielded 440 bails. Last summer it was down to 330. Second cutting went from 170 to 22. So, yes, he appreciates the additional bails, even if it meant he had to contribute to the truck driver’s gasoline. Like many Valley farmers caught in the

FARMERS IN NEED RECEIVE HAY DONATION FROM CITY The City of Ottawa has donated 100 large square bales of hay to HayEast 2012. This is a program that will see thousands of hay bales sent from Western Canada to eastern farmers to help alleviate the hardship caused by drought conditions this past summer. Following the closure of the Nepean National Equestrian Park, the City has provided the leftover hay to aid local farmers through this program. Hay bales began arriving in Ontario in October 2012, with more than 30 truckloads having been delivered to date and dozens more on their way. The target for Western Canada is to send 50,000 bales.

Farmer’s neighbour is every Canadian, no matter how far Continued from front

It isn’t an easy thing for him. O’Rourke’s spent more than 30 rarifying his herd’s genes. Having to give that up is a tough decision to make, especially when others are doing the same causing a drop in price by 10 cents a pound. And yet it doesn’t take away from the joy the O’Rourke brothers found in getting hay sent all the way from Alberta. Hay East, as it is known, is about farmers such as Clint Landral donating hay to eastern farmers devastated by the drought. It is in part a about

settling up a debt. Hay West took place exactly 10 years earlier, when drought ravaged the other side of Canada. There was never a doubt that farmers across this vast land want to help on another in times of crisis. The problem then, and now, has been the distance. But that hasn’t stopped them. Canada has been called a country that doesn’t work in theory, only in practice. Many observing this back-and-forth donating between farmers thousands of kilometres would agree. “The farmers out west are returning the favour,� said

Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. “It’s a great thing to see people in Canada still cherish the support of one another.� Contacted at his elk farm about an hour from Edmonton, Landral saw it as a good news story about Canada. “Good for him. I’m glad it got to him,� Landral said, who explained they had a bumper crop this year and so he could afford to ship out seven loads, or 224 bails this year. It wasn’t far from his mind, either, that he benefitted from Hay West in 2002. It was about knowing what O’Rourke and others are going through, and returning the favour. Asked why he didn’t simply ship the hay south where

he could make a pretty penny, Landral cut off the question at the halfway point. “We’re Canadians. These people, they are my neighbours. They helped us out tremendously. And when you get people so destitute and they have nowhere to turn – they’re our neighbours, I don’t care how far away.� Every Canadian is Landral’s neighbour. O’Rouke is pleased with the hay’s quality too, saying hay from an elk farm is high in protein. He doesn’t notice the cows showing any preference. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise down the road if Harbour Hill cows start cheering for the Oilers.

The Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Fire Services and the Ottawa Paramedic Service are reminding motorists that, when in the presence of an emergency service vehicle with its siren and lights activated, drivers must slow down and safely pull over to the closest curb to ensure safe passage of the emergency vehicle. It is paramount that motorists always be on the lookout for approaching emergency vehicles and abide by the law, as their compliance can make a difference between life and death. Motorists who do not abide by the law will result in a slower response time for emergency personnel and are subject to a ďŹ ne of $490 and three demerit points under the Highway TrafďŹ c Act.

The Confederation Line, the biggest capital project in the City of Ottawa’s history, was approved by City Council on December 19. Council endorsed the selection of the Rideau Transit Group, a consortium of world-leading engineering ďŹ rms, to build the Confederation Line at a ďŹ xed capital price of $2.1 billion. The Confederation Line is the 12.5-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) project that is the backbone of Ottawa’s new rail and rapid bus public transit system, with 13 rail stations. Construction is expected to begin in late February 2013, when RTG will begin widening Highway 417 between Nicholas Street and the 417/174 split. The two additional lanes being added will be used for express bus service while the Transitway is closed for LRT conversion. Residents can continue to view the detailed designs of the Confederation Line by visiting confederationline.ca.

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Volunteers were hard at work packaging, loading and unloading vehicles with food baskets for needy families. Due to poor weather conditions, the turkeys and chickens were delayed on arrival, but that didn’t stop all from having fun. Posing with coordinator Cathy Yocom (fourth from the left) are Jennifer Maitland, Caroyln Beeton, Lee Cole, Michelle Rehkopf, Nora Joiner, and Colleen Nott.

Above: The hall at St. James in Carp was full of non-perishable food items ready to be packaged and delivered to needy West Carleton families. At right, Santa Claus paid a visit to thank the volunteers for their dedication to the cause, while simultaneously providing some Christmas joy on a rather blustery day.

Christmas basket program coordinator Cathy Yocom said the charity helped 77 families this season. Those in need of food this Christmas were asked to contact the church with specific information on what they’d require for a delicious dinner. “It depends on the size of the family,” she explained. Food donations poured in from all areas, including local schools, residents, and businesses, Yocom added. Volunteers show up every year to help out, she said. Each are given tasks to complete, such as labeling the boxes so when the times comes, volunteers know in which direction to head. “Once it starts, it goes really well,” said Yocom of the process. If there’s any non-perishable food items left over, they are sent back to the food bank, she added, and stored there. Yocom said they are grateful for all the support the community provides year after year.

Waiting list long for volunteers at Citizen Advocacy Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Brenda Rose has been on the waiting list for at least three years to get a volunteer match from the group Citizen Advocacy. The group has a long list of Ottawa residents waiting for volunteers to step forward to help out. Citizen Advocacy matches volunteers with people with a wide range of disabilities, including physical limitations, developmental delays, mental illness and disabilities related to aging. Volunteers – called advo-

cates – help their protĂŠgĂŠs with things like grocery shopping and banking. Rose, 60, has multiple sclerosis, which affects her mobility, and sense of direction. She lives in rural Cumberland, and can walk 30 to 45 minutes at a time, but is not able to drive. Previously she was matched up with a volunteer who would go on shopping trips and other outings with Rose. “We’d go shopping, or we’d go out to lunch, out to supper; we’d just go places. It was fun,â€? Rose said. She enjoys writing poetry, completing a poem every two

to three days, and is self-publishing a book. She would like to leave the retirement residence she lives at in Cumberland more often. Currently, she said she can get out of the residence once a week. “We’re stuck out here, out in the country,� she said. “It’s hard to get rides anywhere, and it can be lonely sometimes.� She’d enjoy being matched with a volunteer who could see her once a week, or every two weeks. Rose said any potential matches should be aware that she is a smoker.

Besides shopping outings to stores like Walmart or the dollar store, she enjoys going outside. One of her favourite trips with her former volunteer was to the Experimental Farm, where she enjoyed going outside and seeing the animals. “Sometimes, I even just like going for a drive in the country, more so out by the farms,� Rose said. “I just like to get along with people.� Currently Rose is one of 310 people waiting for a oneon-one volunteer through Citizen Advocacy’s Everyday Champions program. To learn more about Brenda Rose or anybody else across Ottawa on our waiting list, visit citizenadvocacy.org, phone 613-761-9522 or email info@ citizenadvocacy.org.

On arrival, crews reported a four door Toyota Corolla was overturned, wedged in the ditch and was submerged in approximately three to four feet of water. Fire crews used extrication tools to open the driver’s door but could not reach the victim. Another crew was waist deep in water attempting to enter the vehicle through the trunk and rear seat of the vehicle but was unsuccessful. A tow truck was used to pull the vehicle out of the ditch and flipped back onto its wheel so that crews could continue extrication. Fire crews removed both

A civic wish list for Ottawa in the new year

R

ather than looking back at the year that was, let’s look ahead to what lies in store for the city of Ottawa and its residents in the coming 12 months. Yes, there were significant events in the history of this city last year -- the Lansdowne Park court decisions and the approval of the light rail plan stand out as two of the biggest -- but with those things in the past, what does the turning of the calendar year have in store

for us? If we had our way, here are a few things that we think everyone living here can agree would be good things for the capital. With any luck, the Ontario Liberal party will wrap its leadership contest up in due course and recall the legislature as soon as possible in the new year, allowing the entire province to get on with the business of rejuvenating Ontario. Between labour conflicts, questionable conduct by elected officials, troubled

government agencies and a stagnant economy, there is too much that needs to be sorted out at Queen’s Park for the prorogation to last much longer. Speaking of labour strife, we hope the Ministry of Education and teachers’ federations can come to an agreement that allows for our children to receive the education they deserve under conditions that allow government to rein in the deficit while respecting the collective

bargaining rights of teachers. That’s a tough task considering the current climate, but it’s the challenge at hand. Closer to home, Ottawa needs to finally move forward with the Presto program or move on. A system that makes the most of existing technology to ensure maximum convenience for transit riders while minimizing cost and increasing efficiency for OC Transpo is what we expect. If Metrolinx, the provincial agency behind Presto, can’t

deliver this type of system, the city needs to find someone who can. With the city’s Official Plan up for review, now is the time to bring the pre-amalgamation patchwork of zoning bylaws under one roof, making planning easier for staff and the rules easier to understand for developers and residents alike. When it comes to transparency, the city needs to prove its commitment to openness by being upfront about projects such as the temporary

parking lot on Lees Avenue. Over the five-plus years it’s expected to take to finish the LRT project this isn’t going to be the only temporary measure the city will need to take, but it can surely do so in a more transparent way. There are other things we’d like to see, too: the return of professional hockey to the ice at Scotiabank Place, more work to make Ottawa one of North America’s most cycling-friendly city and the genesis of planning for Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. We accomplished much as a city in 2012. Let’s keep up the good work in 2013.

COLUMN

A bit of perspective for 2012 CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

n the midst of all this seasonal joy and hilarity and sing-songing and retrospecting, there is a constant need for perspective, an imperative to bring us back to earth. With that in mind, this is exactly the right time to present the Worst Ideas of 2012, with a special emphasis on the National Capital Region. 1. A casino for downtown. What more needs to be said? Negligible contribution to the economy, if any, social problems galore. The truly classy cities of the world shun casinos. It would be nice if we could be among them. Think how it would improve the life, not to mention the image of the city, if downtown got a new library instead of a new casino. 2. Two-tier recess. This one might have gone unnoticed if not for coverage in the Citizen. Some elementary schools are adopting a plan under which special programs are available at recess for children whose parents fork over the money. Can you imagine any responsible educator even looking once at such a program? The kids with less money stand and watch the kids with more money have fun? The reason we have public schools is so that every child can receive the same level of education. If these programs are that good, the school boards should pay for them and make them available to all. Either that or ditch the idea altogether. 3. Robocalls, political or otherwise. It’s bad enough that they have been allowed to intrude into elections, but even without that it’s bad. Why should machines be allowed to disturb us in our homes? It’s bad enough that telemarketers interrupt our dinners, but at least these are

human beings earning a meagre wage. Ban the robocalls. If we are to be called, let a human being do the dialing, for Pete’s sake, and pay him some money. 4. Social media — or, more precisely, talking about social media. Facebook, Twitter and whatnot are either going to survive or not. Who knows? But do the mainstream media have to be so fixated on them, as if they were as newsworthy as war, starvation or, more to the point, climate change? A related bad idea in the mainstream media is treating Twitter feeds as if they were news. Nobody cares about somebody’s 140 characters and, as we’ve seen in recent tragic events, they are often horrendously wrong. 5. Siri. Hey, you can talk to you phone and tell it what to do. You can tell it to play you a samba or call your uncle. You can ask your phone where the nearest sushi is. What a contribution to mankind. Think of the useful products that could be coming out of our economic system, think of the serious problems our economic system could be solving if it wasn’t expending all its creative energy on phones. 6. Condos. Enough already. Our city needs at least some small houses, small stores. We’re losing them every day as new condos rise, ever higher. The arguments for intensification are familiar to us all. But this is getting too intense. Since this a complicated world, we must take account of some ideas that are iffy. They may be good, they may be bad. We’ll just have to wait and see. In this category we would place such things as postal delivery changes, every-other-week garbage pickup and additional lanes on the Queensway. We shouldn’t omit thoughts of the best ideas of the year. There were some. As always, the NCC Christmas lights were gorgeous downtown, although perhaps a bit cut back, in the Scrooge-ish spirit of the times. The Rink of Dreams at City Hall is terrific. Check it out at night if you haven’t seen it. By year’s end it will have accommodated more skaters than the National Hockey League. And finally, here’s a good idea that not everyone expected: light rail.

Ultimate tragedy of Newtown would be no gun law changes To the editor: It is very difficult to get one’s head around the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. It was senseless to say the least that leaves another scar on the social and political landscape of America. But we in Canada are not immune from this kind of ‘insanity’, so one ought to be careful how critical we are of what has occurred there. Having said this, there is an issue in the United States regarding guns and control of them that we don’t have here. That is the issue of having ‘a right to bear arms’. In Canada, we have the privilege of

owning them providing we are duly licensed and the type of firearms fit certain criteria as to being restricted or prohibited. In the United States there is the belief that Americans have the ‘right to bear them’. That is the thrust of my letter. What does the right to bear arms actually mean? In addressing this question, one must go back some 236 years to 1776. The second amendment to the United States Constitution gave states the right to raise and maintain their own militias. These militias are army formations under the control of the state governments. We know them as National Guard

units. They operate, as our own military units do, as ‘aids to ... or support to the civil power’. State militias can be called up in support of national interests as required, or as we often see, on orders from state governments. In these instances one does not see individual Americans marching down the streets bearing arms. Individuals are outside of the laws that created state militias. A notable exception is the wild west practice of law police officials deputizing citizens into posses, but that practice was never a substitute for state militias. So where is America at with the

belief that Americans have the right to bear arms? Over time, this concept has been hi-jacked by organizations like the National Rifle Association, and others, that this is a ‘right’. So there is a proliferation of weapons on the American landscape that permits assault weapons, etc. that have no real purpose outside of military or law enforcement. While it may be true that ‘guns don`t kill ... people do’, it is time to redefine the second amendment and to restrict these kinds of weapons so that the possibility of further insanity can be minimized. I doubt if this will come to pass. The political minefield is strewn

with ignorance and a lack of political will. That is the ultimate tragedy of Newtown, Connecticut. It is a sad commentary to suggest this to be true, but alas it is a probability that these innocent children and those who tried to protect them might have died in vain. One would think that a change in dogma, etc. might occur, but I doubt it. I suggest this because ĂŹf there is a God, he must love ignorant people more than pragmatic saner folk. The reason is `because he made so many of them! Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

Ontario needs a new approach to handling animal welfare concerns To the editor: Animal welfare is a growing concern for farmers and society. In particular, the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) is a topic of growing importance to farmers in Ontario. While there is no doubt that animal welfare issues are a serious concern and must be dealt with properly, the approach in Ontario when it comes to farming needs to change. There are incidents in the rural countryside that are drawing attention. Throughout the last year, there has been a focus on issues in Eastern Ontario. Recently, farmers in Huron County were subject to the OSPCA executing 16 warrants following an investigation into multiple animal cruelty complaints. The investigations resulted in orders being issued related to animal housing and some

medical treatment. OSPCA is working with owners on the issues and will follow up. Fortunately, no charges have been laid at this time. On the political front, Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren has put forward a Bill regarding the OSPCA. The bill aims to change the powers of the OSPCA substantially, including removing their powers to enforce provisions under the Act. According to Farm and Food Care Ontario, this move could create the monumental task of training thousands of busy police officers in animal care assessment. The CFFO believes that a new, made-in-Ontario solution is necessary to adequately balance these concerns in a manner that doesn’t draw unnecessary media attention to an issue. We believe that the vast majority of concerns can be resolved firmly and properly, but done in a quiet manner and with respect between

parties. The vast majority of farmers today are professionals who take pride in their work and their animal husbandry practices, but the possibility of irresponsible action exists. As a sector, we must be willing to take responsibility for this and discipline them ourselves. The approach to animal welfare in this province needs to evolve into something different. There are flashpoints that are drawing serious attention from farmers, and there are efforts on several fronts to develop new solutions.

The CFFO recognizes that this is an important issue and we believe the sector needs to come together and provide a new way of handling these issues in Ontario.

A dog of a different colour EMC lifestyle - Nature is full of surprises. They come when one stumbles across an unusual bird, such as the Ivory Gull, the most northern bird in the world that visited Arnprior recently. They occur when a Cooper’s Hawk suddenly explodes through the trees, homing in on a Mourning Dove beneath a backyard feeder. And they come when we encounter a rather common animal wearing a most unusual colour. Recently I was driving to Ottawa when my eye caught motion across the road. I looked and was surprised to see a Coyote wandering across the field towards me. I made a U-turn (safely, of course!) and parked on the opposite shoulder, rolling down my window as the car came to rest. As usual I had my camera sitting beside me and I grabbed it and stuck it out the window. The Coyote continued to work its way toward me, seemingly unaware of its admirer and the large lens pointing right at it. The first thing I noticed was the Coyote’s unusual colour. I have seen many of these wild dogs in Ontario and most were grey or dark grey with various amounts of darker patterns in their lovely coats. This one was very different,

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way being more of a strawberryblond. It finally noticed me and headed back across the field. Coyotes are remarkable wild dogs. Unlike most carnivores, Coyotes in the past 100 years have expanded their North American range and their population continues to rise. This has occurred despite years of relentless persecution. Coyotes continue to receive no special protection in Ontario and in many other regions. This is a genuine injustice and the “Coyote culls� in which prizes are offered to participants should be banned. Likely ignorance and fear are behind much of the hatred shown towards this relatively innocuous member of the wild. I agree that when a

This unusual Coyote was encountered near Ottawa. Coyote becomes a problem by attacking livestock actions are necessary; however, widespread killing sprees are unjustifiable. Those are analogous to us destroying all domestic dogs because some have attacked and maimed children. Or jailing all members of a town because one resident committed murder.

atively elusive and tough to see, many of you have heard their wonderful howls. For all of you, may your Christmas holiday be filled with the wild music of Coyotes and encounters with other fascinating members of the wild. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Government announces locked-door policy for schools EMC news - Ontario is providing renewed funding to elementary schools across the province to support a locked-door policy while students are in class. The move was made in wake of the mass killings in Newtown, Con. The Safe Welcome Program will be reopened for applications, according to Premier Dalton McGuinty. The program provides

funding to schools that need support to install devices that give staff more control over who enters the school. Student safety is one of Ontario’s top priorities, he said. The McGuinty government says it is committed to working with its education partners to provide the resources they need to reasonably ensure a safe and positive learning environment for every student. “When parents send their kids off to school

they are putting their trust in us, and we have to get it right,” McGuinty said. “That’s why our government is committed to providing safe, welcoming places to learn for all our kids. It’s up to us to take all reasonable steps available to us to protect our kids. Locking school doors is a reasonable step.” The government has provided funding to nearly 850 of Ontario’s 4,000 elementary schools for access device systems such as new

locking doors, security cameras and buzzers. Ontario has expanded the Safe Welcome Program’s original criteria so it now includes schools that have front doors visible from the main office. Professional development and training has been provided for school and school board staff and local police services to implement the local protocol at both the elementary and secondary levels.

Make food safety part of your holiday menu this year EMC lifestyle - Whether you are eating at home or at one of Ottawa’s many restaurants, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reminding residents to keep food safety top of mind during this busy and festive time of year. Residents can avoid foodborne illness by following safe food handling, storage and cooking practices at home, and by choosing restaurants that consistently meet safety guidelines. Health Canada estimates that there are between 11 and 13 million cases of foodborne illness in Canada every year. Foodborne illness –sometimes called food poisoning– usually results from eating food or drinking water contaminated by disease-causing bacteria or the toxins they produce. Here are some tips that will make this Holiday Season safer for you, your loved ones and your guests. PREPARATION, THAWING, STOR-

can also transfer bacteria from raw to cooked foods.

AGE AND SANITATION

• Wash your hands for at least 15 seconds with soap and water, especially after sneezing, smoking, coughing, using the washroom, touching pets, changing diapers, or touching raw meats or eggs. • Wash all vegetables and fruits, including those that you peel or cut, such as melons, oranges and cucumbers. • Thaw foods in the refrigerator – turkey or chicken should be thawed in the refrigerator and never at room temperature. • Be sure to cover and store raw meat or marinades on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator to avoid spilling liquids on ready-to-eat foods. • Wash, rinse, and sanitize utensils, cutting boards, and food preparation surfaces and be sure to use separate work areas to avoid crosscontamination of raw and ready-toeat foods. Remember, your hands

COOKING

Cook all ground beef, pork and fish products until it registers an internal temperature of 71°C/158°F on a cooking thermometer for 15 seconds. Turkey and stuffing: • Cook turkey and stuffing separately. • Cook turkey until it registers an internal temperature of 82°C/180°F on a cooking thermometer for 15 seconds. • Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of cooking. Raw egg products: Prepare foods that may contain raw eggs such as eggnog, hollandaise sauce and caesar salad dressing, fresh every day using pasteurized eggs. • meat, soft cheeses and appetizers:

• Keep cold foods such as cheese and meat platters at a temperature of 4°C/40°F or below. Tip: Place the serving dish over cubed or crushed ice. • Keep hot foods such as appetizers at a temperature of 60°C/140°F or above. Tip: Use a hot plate, slow cooker or chafing dish. DINING OUT

your health has been compromised because of food, contact your family doctor or visit a walk-in medical clinic. For more food safety tips, visit ottawa.ca or to report a suspected food-borne illness call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656). You can also connect with OPH on our blog, Facebook and Twitter (@ottawahealth).

Did you know that OPH Restaurant Inspections are posted online? Inspectors visit food establishments, both on a routine and complaint related basis, to make sure any deficiencies are quickly corrected, and prepare a report about each visit. This report is posted online shortly after the inspection and includes any deficiencies found at the establishment. Food poisoning can feel like the flu. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or fever. If you suspect that

EMC lifestyle - Daughter #3 decided to host an End of the World party on Dec. 20. She did all her own appetizer shopping, and informed her friends that the dress code would be semi-formal. She asked permission to take over the whole house, rather than being restricted to the basement and back room as usual. We requested that the beer pong tables at least be restricted to the basement, and that candles be kept to a minimum. She reassured us that there would be no smoking anywhere in the house, keys would be collected and guests that drank would be strongly encouraged to sleep over. All 25 of them. For days she planned this party, arranging a potluck menu and creating an apocalyptic song list soundtrack. She spent the day decorating and preparing the house for the party, i.e. hiding all of the knick knacks and family photos that she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like, creating mood lighting and rearranging furniture. We got a little worried when we saw the good china coming out, and asked her to switch to stoneware instead. She frowned for a moment and then conceded to sensibility. But she insisted they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t using plastic cutlery. This was to be a fancy party after all. I had to smile when I saw her arranging the buf-

THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, my son was 6 years old. One night, while he was brushing his teeth, he looked up at me and told me what he wanted for Christmas. He said that even though he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in Santa anymore, he still wished for a toy car. It was one of those cars that climbs walls, turns over and just keeps going and going. He told me that he knew he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get it because we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it. I was devastated. My little boy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t asking for much, but he was right; we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the means to get this for himâ&#x20AC;?. This story is from a mother who has received help from the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawa. Due to external circumstances beyond her control, life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what she had envisioned for her children. When her worker found out about her situation, she immediately went to the volunteers who manage the Holiday Gift Program in search of this toy. After a few days, the toy was found and a call was made to Mom. Mom was in tears, because she ďŹ nally got a chance to make her little boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish come true. After the holidays, the worker received a voicemail explaining how this little boy, Christmas morning, opened his gift and started jumping for joy, squealing with excitement. Mom said when she tucked her little boy in that night, he thanked her, told her it was the best day ever and that now, he BELIEVED! This is just one example of how together, we can make a difference. If you could see the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces light up when they open their gifts or the smile spread across their face from ear to ear, you would be witness to the magical moments the holiday season can bring. On behalf of the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) and the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO), thank you to all who have given their time, money and commitment to the children, youth and families of our community. This year, CASO received more than 9,000 gifts from over 140 organizations, businesses, schools and individuals. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had approximately 10 volunteers donate over 850 hours collecting, sorting and preparing these gifts for pick-up. Year after year, we have the chance to see ďŹ rsthand what your contributions mean to children, youth and families. We are humbled by your generosity.

The Wizard of Oz is coming to the Valley

EMC events - Arnprior will be getting a little green – and yellow – this spring when Two Rivers Musical Productions brings The Wizard of Oz to town. Who needs Toronto? You can stay right here in your own backyard to see Dorothy, Toto, the Wicked Witch and all the rest in this magical musical based on the 1939 classic film, set to hit the stage June 6-8. Building on last year’s outstanding production of Fiddler on the Roof, this third outing from Two Rivers will be directed by Dunrobin’s Ron Gardner. “We’re thrilled to bring another major musical production to our local audience,” says Gardner, whose community theatre experience includes leading stage and director roles with Two Rivers, Kanata Theatre and Rural Root Theatre Company. “With the wealth of talent that we’ve seen from Fiddler and Annie, we have very high expectations of finding those special performers who can bring this timeless story to life.” With such a large production, there’s a huge need for talent both onstage and off – with roles for everything from set design and construction to costumes and musical accompaniment. Lisa Webber, back for a third year as musical director, is excited to be part of another unforgettable musical experience. “Once again, we have a wide range of roles for all ages,” says Webber, who recently ran a two-day workshop to help people develop skills for auditioning and performing on the stage. “Our Dorothy will obviously need to have that exceptional, soaring voice, but there are also a lot of comedic roles that require a little bit of singing and a lot of character.” Adds Gardner: “With such a large, all-ages cast, The Wiz-

Saturday night house party a way of life for Mary EMC Lifestyle - What was left of the Christmas tree, was dragged out to the back of the woodshed. Standing in the kitchen, in the farthest corner, away from the Findlay Oval, was not enough to save the sprigs of the Spruce tree, most of which had been swept up and fed into the fire box. The decorations, loops of silver rope, saved year after year, the clip-on candle holders, which always terrified Mother, so sure was she the whole place would go up in smoke, and the few felt animals we attached to the branches, were finally wrapped in issues of the Renfrew Mercury and packed away for another year. The house was back to normal, and a new year was beginning. It was time to get back to the Saturday night house parties. In the summer time, most of the community activities centred around the church, but in the winter, socializing was done in the homes. I loved the Saturday night house parties. No formal invitations were necessary, and it was beyond me how anyone knew where the party was being held. My much older, and wiser, sister Audrey said she was

sure Central would simply start ringing everyone who had a phone, and tell them where the next party was taking place. At that time in my life, I thought that was a perfect explanation. When the party was at our house, everything movable was shoved against the kitchen walls to make way for the square dancers. Of course, the house had to be cleaned from top to bottom too. Even the bedrooms upstairs had to be readied ... thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the youngest of us ended up. Neighbours started coming early in the evening. Horses and sleighs lined up in the yard. None had to be tied ... they seemed to know they were expected to stay put, which always amazed me. Enough food would be brought to feed half of Renfrew County. Sandwiches filled 11 quart baskets, which had been lined with spanking clean flour bag tea towels. These were of the simplest kind ... roast pork and beef, and egg salad. Canned salmon was unheard of. Anyone who wanted to be real fancy, brought bologna, which was my very favourite.

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

Slab cakes and molasses cookies were taken out to the summer kitchen to keep chilled and covered with more tea towels. Before anyone arrived, Mother would have the big shiny kettle boiling and at least two white aluminum tea pots simmering with green tea on the back of the stove. Of course, there were no clothes closets, so the coats were piled on the nearest bed, and it always amazed me that no one went home wearing some elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat. Around the kitchen stove, galoshes and rubber boots were kept warm for the trip home. At our house the baking table was moved into the parlour for euchre and another game was always going on around the old pine table in the kitchen. There was much pounding of fists, loud laughing, and frivolity at both tables, and I often wondered if they took the

game as seriously as I thought they did. And music filled the house. Uncle Alec Thom would bring his fiddle, Mother would take her mouth organ out of its blue velvet box, Father would grab two spoons, one of the Beam boys would tune up his guitar, and there was always someone ready to call for a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The youngest of us would be upstairs in a bedroom playing Parcheesi, or Jacks, and as the night wore on, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

unusual for five or six of us to stretch out crossways on a bed and fall asleep. When the Saturday night house party was at a neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, and I was one of the ones bedded down, it was a mystery to me how I would wake up the next morning in my own bed! I would have no recollection of being carried out to the sleigh, or of being put into my bed. I would be wearing the same clothes I had worn that evening. The only thing missing would be my galoshes. So I often didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to get dressed for church the next morning. When the party was at our house, I always hoped there would be some cookies or slab cake left to be enjoyed on Sunday, but there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be

a crumb of lunch left! By Sunday morning, everything in the kitchen would be back to normal. Mother and Audrey would have washed the dishes, and the furniture would all be back in place. The parlour door would once again be closed, and a braided mat rolled up against it. There was no need to heat a room that was never used in the winter time except for the Saturday night house party. And so it went ... all winter long. As normal as going to church every Sunday, or going into Renfrew to peddle chickens and butter, the Saturday night house party was a way of life back in those Depression years. And the price was right too.

Roesler himself has been active in the communities’ outdoor hockey program for the past nine years. “I’ll do anything to get more kids on the ice,” he said. “If these kids become hockey players, even better.”

EMC news - A program for young skaters will make its debut in Fitzroy Harbour and Dunrobin in January. Both communities have been chosen for the City of Ottawa’s “I Love to Skate” program. The program, for ages 6 to 12, will be held at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centyre and

the Dunrobin Community Association’s outdoor rinks from late January to February with four weeks of lessons. Children must attend all lessons. But the priority, said Fitzroy Harbour coordinator Rob Roesler, is for children who have never owned a pair of skates before. Calling the experience challenging yet rewarding, both Roesler and Greg Patacairk, from the Dunrobin Community Association,

Hockey display for Arnprior’s 150th Arnprior District archivist Laurie Dougherty puts the final touches on a hockey display that she put together to celebrate hockey history in Arnprior for the Arnprior 150 Anniversary celebrations. It will be at the Nick Smith Centre until Jan. 7 and should be a major attraction at the Arnprior 150 New Year’s celebration Dec. 31. The display features teams from 1898 to 1967 and contains three artifacts on loan from the Arnprior District Museum. Several people contributed to the display by donating photographs and equipment and by providing identification of players and coaches including Jim Robillard, Ed Reid and Bryan Rafter. SUBMITTED

Scotiabank to host 100th figure-skating championship in 2014 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The capital is set to play host to the 100th anniversary edition of the National Figure Skating Championships – an event that began in Ottawa – in 2014. Mayor Jim Watson and Skate Canada president Benoît Lavoie announced on Dec. 18 that the major event will take place at Scotiabank Place from Jan. 9 to 15, 2014. Skating is a popular pastime on neighbourhood rinks around Ottawa, Watson said, and bringing a premier professional sporting event to the city will provide entertainment for skating fans and a boost for the local economy. “Ottawa has a strong history of skating in this community,” Watson said, referencing past champions who call Ottawa home and were on hand for the event: Liz Manley, Lynn Nightingale, Debbi Wilkes and also Barbara Ann Scott, who recently passed away. Lavoie pointed out that some of the oldest archival images of figure skating in Canada show skaters on the

rink at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. “Skating has a strong history here,” he said. “I can’t think of a better place to spend our 100th anniversary. Let’s make it a big celebration.” Watson thanked Ottawa clubs including the Minto Skating Club, which hosted the first championships, and the Gloucester Skating Club, for helping turn Ottawa’s young athletes into the champions of tomorrow. Some of them are likely to skate at the 2014 championships, which will be sponsored for the first time by Canadian Tire. The city is kicking in $50,000 towards hosting the championships. The event is also the final qualification opportunity for the Canadian Olympic team that will represent the country during the Sochi 2014 Games. The event is expected to draw thousands of people to the capital and generate close to $4 million in economic impact for the area. Ottawa last hosted the figure-skating championships in 2006. Tickets will go on sale in the spring of 2013.

In addition to Scotiabank Place, competing athletes will also make use of the Bell Sensplex in Kanata as a practice facility. Watson pointed out that this is the latest event announcement in Ottawa’s strategy to host more major events and give the local tourism economy a boost. The city is also playing host to the International Ice Hockey Federation Women’s World Championships and the International Triathlon Union’s Duathlon World Championships next year, as well as the FIFA Women’s World Cup soccer tournament in 2015. On Dec. 18, Canadian Tire also announced it will be sponsoring Skate Canada’s CanSkate program, which is the only learn-to-skate program for Canadians of all ages. Each year the program teaches more than 125,000 Canadians how to skate. “Skating is a Canadian tradition and we believe there is power in sport to bring family, friends and communities together,” said Landon French, vice president of sport partnerships for Canadian Tire.

Ontario farmland values on the rise in early 2012 EMC news - The average value of farmland in Ontario increased by 16.3 per cent during the ďŹ rst half of 2012, according to a new Farm Credit Canada (FCC) Farmland Values Report. It is the highest average increase across Canada and is in line with property assessment ďŹ gures being mailed out this

fall by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. The latest increase, the highest since 1996, is part of a trend that shows farmland values have been rising in the province since 1993. In the two previous sixmonth reporting periods, farmland values increased by 7.2 and 6.6 per cent.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;High-quality farmland suitable for specialty crops continued to be in strong demand,â&#x20AC;? says FCC senior vicepresident Michael Hoffort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consolidation of farms in some provinces is an ongoing trend as producers seek to increase their land base and take advantage of efďŹ ciencies.â&#x20AC;? Recent increases in farm-

land values have been mostly driven by two factors: continued high crop receipts, particularly for soybeans and corn, and low interest rates. Some areas of the country

are witnessing a market where multiple bids are being placed on the same property, which sets the stage for a sellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market. FCC will monitor the im-

pact of the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought in Eastern Canada in future reports, as it may affect farmland values. For more information, visit www.fcc.ca.

Governments deliver assistance to livestock producers EMC lifestyle – More government assistance is on the way for Ontario livestock producers facing severe forage shortages as a result of this summer’s dry growing conditions. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant and Liberal Ottawa-Orleans MPP Phil McNeely made the announcement last Friday on behalf of the federal and provincial agriculture ministers. The governments of Canada and Ontario will provide assistance through AgriRecovery to help livestock producers with transportation costs incurred in accessing feed for their breeding herds over winter. “Forage shortages in Ontario have forced many livestock producers to find alternate sources of feed for their animals that must be transported from long distances at a significant cost,” said Gallant. “Our government has delivered support through tax deferrals, Hay East and now through AgriRecovery to cover some of those extra costs producers will

incur to transport feed or to move livestock to feed.” “When I toured Ontario farms this summer, I saw first-hand the impact of the drought on crops and livestock,” said Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Minister Ted McMeekin. “We responded quickly this summer to support livestock producers through advanced insurance payments and support for Hay East 2012. Now AgriRecovery completes the response. We’re all in this together.” Drought conditions during the summer significantly reduced forage yields and damaged pastures for livestock producers in parts of Ontario, with the upper Ottawa Valley particularly hard hit. The Ontario Forage and Livestock Transportation Assistance Initiative will provide up to $2.4 million to help affected livestock producers in designated drought areas of eastern and southwest Ontario cover a portion of the extraordinary costs of transporting feed to their breeding herds, or breeding herds to ar-

eas with surplus feed. The two components of the initiative are: • up to 14 cents per tonne, per kilometer to assist with the transportation of forage and feed; or • up to 7.5 cents per kilometer, per animal, to move animals to available feed. The initiative is being delivered under the AgriRecovery Framework, which allows governments to respond to unforeseen disasters that result in extraordinary recovery costs for producers. Producers are encouraged to make full use of existing government programs - AgriInsurance, AgriStability and AgriInvest - designed to help them mitigate income and production losses. The AgriRecovery initiative is in addition to the support governments have already provided through the HayEast campaign to help with the costs of transporting donated hay from Western Canada. The federal government is also providing tax deferrals to eligible producers in designated drought areas on the sale

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant shares the farm assistance announcement with Ontario Federation of Agriculture Valley representative Brian Hamilton. of their breeding livestock. The full list of designated areas for the 2012 Livestock Tax Deferral Provision can be found on AAFC’s Drought Watch site at

Tips to consider before shovelling snow this winter EMC news - Most of us would agree that we dodged winter last year, but it is certainly back this year. With winter, we get fresh snow – one of the most beautiful and peaceful things to witness, but with it comes the burden of shovelling. When you consider that the average shovelful of snow weighs five pounds, the average driveway may hold hundreds of pounds of snow. Before you grab your shovel, consider these tips to help keep you injury free: Warm up: A tight, stiff body is a recipe

for injury, so take a few minutes to warm-up. Overall conditioning like walking and some warm-up exercises to get the blood flowing and the muscles loosened up can save you a lot of pain later. Use proper posture: Try to push the snow to the side rather than lifting heavy amounts of snow. When you do shovel, let your knees, hips and arm muscles do the heavy lifting, and avoid twisting your back. Use the right type of shovel: Your shovel should be about chest height, allowing you to

keep your back straight when lifting. A short handle forces you to bend more to lift the snow, while a too-tall shovel makes the weight heavier. Using a light-weight pusher-style shovel will help to protect your back. Timing is everything: Frequent shoveling allows you to move smaller amounts of snow at a time, and fresh snow will be easier to move than packed snow. Try to shovel in the afternoon rather than the early morning, as many spinal disc injuries

occur in the morning when there is increased pressure on the disc. Take it slow: Shoveling isn’t a competitive sport, so take your time and listen to your body. Take frequent rest breaks and stop shoveling immediately if you feel chest or back pain. If you do overdo it, your chiropractor can help you relieve the pain and prevent further injuries.

Food bank demands at an all-time high Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Food banks in Ontario are facing unprecedented demand, according to a new report from the Ontario Association of Food Banks. More than 412,000 people in the

province, including 160,000 children, are accessing food support and hunger relief programs every month, the report found. This is up from 395,000 users in 2011. Some of the fastest growing groups of food bank users include single par-

ent households, the working poor, seniors, university students and recent graduates. Bill Laidlaw, executive director of the association, said rising food and living costs, droughts and other agricultural issues, cuts to social services

and increased layoffs across the province have all contributed to the increased demand. “Every day there are children going to school without breakfast, adults working through the day without lunch, and seniors going to bed with-

OC Transpo has to retrain all drivers on Presto Emergency second round of training could cost $65,600: union Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Technical glitches aren’t the only issue plaguing OC Transpo’s Presto card system. With so many changes and new procedures resulting from bugs in the system, operators are having trouble keeping up. An overhaul of the drivers’ Presto display screens is set to hit buses at the beginning of January – only a couple of weeks before 10,000 more people are set to get Presto cards – meaning OC Transpo is getting ready to train all of its operators how to use Presto all over again. The cost of the retraining hasn’t been finalized, city spokeswoman Jocelyne Turner wrote in an email, but the tab will be picked up by Metrolinx, the provincially funded agency in charge of Presto. At a driver’s average hourly wage, sending all the operators back for an hour and a half of training costs about $65,000 said Craig Watson, the president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279. “We’re allowing them to go outside our contract and make a special concession to get all the operators in and retrained on Presto because there have been so many issues that have developed,” Watson said. “So yeah, there (are) some problems, but we’re going to move them out in a really fast process. All of the drivers are going to be brought in for training. Everybody needs it.” It’s not that the drivers didn’t get training the first time, Watson said. It’s that the system has changed so many times that the original train-

ing barely applies. When the Presto system more or less stopped working in the summer and the drivers didn’t use that knowledge, they lost it, Watson said. “The technology hasn’t worked,” he said. “When the drivers were trained, you’ve got to remember, they were trained a long time ago (in the spring). If the technology had worked right away, they would have been using it all the time. But when you don’t have it work for six months, you don’t remember how.” Not to mention, there was at least one error in the training program and it wasn’t discovered until almost all drivers had been trained, Watson said. INFURIATING’

The issue came to a head for Capital Coun. David Chernushenko after he received error messages for the fifth day in a row while trying to board the bus. “It’s infuriating,” Chernushenko said. “It’s not living up to the advertising,” he said. “I am not feeling good that it’s just a matter of a couple more tweaks.” The councillor was ready to give up on Presto entirely and advise OC Transpo to do the same, but he credits the transit agency for tracking down the issue and fixing it before he threw in the towel. Finding and fixing these sorts of problems is the reason an extended testing phase is a good thing, said transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans. The problem? A driver hit the wrong button to approve the balance on Chernushenko’s

card the first time he used it, rendering his card always in the red. OC Transpo thought Chernushenko owed it money for the one “grace period” trip regular riders will be allowed, in case they forget to top up their card. The grace trip is deducted after the rider adds more money to their card. But Chernushenko never added money because he has a monthly pass, not a cash balance, so the Presto machine kept asking him for money. “In this case, it’s an ongoing training issue with our operators,” said OC Transpo’s manager of business and operational services, David Pepper, hinting at the complexity of keeping a workforce of 1,600 drivers up to speed with the ever-changing system. RIDERS

Just like it’s taking a while for drivers to learn how the new system works, it’s going to take some time for riders to adjust. Presto will mark a sea-change in how we pay to ride the bus. For one thing, the passes are transferable, meaning you and a spouse, roommate or anyone for that matter, could share a card – as long as you don’t ride at the same time. The cards can be topped up online or at a service centre. Pepper explains the massive effort involved in explaining the nuances of the new card to a lineup of people at transit

stations when they are handed out in small batches – never mind the 200,000-card dump the city initially planned to do on June 10 for a Canada Day launch of the Presto system. Now, the full rollout has been tentatively delayed until May or June. Transit commissioners will decide in April whether the fixes and testing are enough to give them confidence to forge ahead with the smart cards. Despite the complications, to his knowledge, Pepper says no one has turned in their Presto card. Still, OC Transpo has no way of tracking how many people are actively using their cards. There are currently 2,000 cards in the hands of people like city councillors, OC Transpo staff and their families, but the transit agency can only monitor the number of taps – not how many cards those taps are coming from, Pepper said. With the planned release of an additional 10,000 cards in mid-January, Pepper says OC Transpo is hoping at least 50 per cent of them use the cards regularly. That lowball number is enough to give OC Transpo the kind of critical mass it needs to put the system to the test. And now that the Toronto Transit Commission has signed on to implement Presto in that city by 2016, all eyes will be watching Ottawa to see how it fares.

out dinner, simply because they cannot afford food to eat,” Laidlaw said in a statement. According to the report, 19 per cent of food banks in the province do not have enough supplies to meet the growing need in their community. In the rural Osgoode Ward in south Ottawa, food cupboard organizer Denise Herbert said demand is up 45 per cent in the area while donations are down. The biggest problem for the organization, she said, is the ongoing labour dispute between the teachers and the province, because teachers aren’t as involved in organizing food drives at their schools. Osgoode Township High School is the food cupboard’s biggest donor every December, collecting between 15,000 and 20,000 food items for distribution at the Osgoode and Embrun food cupboards. But this year the onus is on students to make sure enough food is collected for needy families. “The student council has taken over and I don’t know what’s going to happen there, if they can get the same amount,” Herbert said. Osgoode Township’s student council co-president Alison Reiszadeh said it has been difficult organizing the food drive without teacher support, but she is hoping the student population will still respond. “Obviously without teachers it has been really, really hard trying to get it going,” Reiszadeh said. “But it has shaped up. It’s running and it’s doing fairly well.” Reiszadeh expected to have collected about 3,000 cans by the end of November. The student council will continue to collect food until about Dec. 19. The Grade 12 student said she doesn’t hold the teachers responsible for any extra work she has to do to run the food drive or for a potential shortfall in collections. She said several teachers have been keen to help. They have taken the time to answer questions and help her get organized, even if they aren’t taking a hands-on role. “They’re put in a tough position and I don’t want to put them in a harsh light,” she said. The Ontario report found that 42 per cent of 2012 food bank users were accessing hunger relief programs for the first time in their lives. Laidlaw said the association will continue to pursue the recommendations for change that it made in its 2011 Hunger Report, including a call for increased access to affordable healthy food, advocating for a housing benefit for low income individuals, a tax credit for farmers and a push for the Ontario government to address the root causes of hunger by implementing policy changes that will lead to longterm sustainable solutions, and ultimately make food banks unnecessary.

Winter tire benefits not understood: report Only half of Canadian driver use winter tires, despite their proven superior performance in all cold-weather road conditions EMC news - Drivers lag in adopting winter tires in spite of evidence that their use saves lives and reduces roadaccident injuries. A 2011 study by the Quebec government shows that winter road-accident injuries have dropped by five per cent since winter tire use was made mandatory by law in 2008. Widespread use of winter tires is credited with preventing about 575 injuries per winter in the province. These findings are supported by a new report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) that concludes that winter tires decrease cost-

ly collisions. The report cites extensive research that shows that winter tires deliver superior traction, cornering and braking on all cold-weather road surfaces. “All the evidence points to winter tires being the safest choice for driving in cold weather,” says Glenn Maidment, president of the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC), which represents tire makers. “Drivers should carefully consider whether winter tires are right for them and make an educated choice.” This fall tire makers are urging motorists to get the facts about winter tires. A

Prepare now for winter driving EMC news - Despite the sometimes balmy weather of the last week, the temperatures are forecast to dip below freezing this weekend. Winter is about to land in this area and now is the time to prepare your vehicle for winter driving, urge the OPP. Preparing yourself and your vehicle for the harsh winter weather ahead can go a long way in reducing collisions – something the OPP sees far too many of every winter. • Install four winter-rated tires before the first snowfall. They improve driving safety by providing better traction, braking and handling during frost, snow, slush, and particularly under icy conditions. Installing four winter tires provides greater control and stability. • Have an ice scraper or snow brush in your vehicle to keep your windows, signals and lights clear. • Top up your windshield washer reservoir and keep an extra one handy. • Keep your fuel tank at least half full, so you don’t run out of gas should you become stranded and to prevent condensation from forming in your gas tank. • Keep a fully stocked emergency kit in your vehicle. • Have your vehicle serviced to avoid preventable breakdowns. • OPP also encourage people to adjust their driving habits for winter conditions. • Drivers must slow down. Speeding too fast for road conditions is the number one cause of winter collisions. • Drive according to the road and weather conditions. • Leave extra spaces between vehicles. Stopping distances are at least doubled on snowy roads and even longer in icy conditions. • Know where you are. If you require help in an emergency, it will delay the arrival of emergency responders if you don’t know your location when asked. • Monitor road and weather conditions. Plan your trip and check local weather conditions before heading out. • Check the Ministry of Transportation website prior to

heading out during the winter. Please do not call 911 or the OPP for road reports; instead log onto mto.gov.on.ca/english/traveller/conditions.

wealth of on-line information about the performance advantages of winter tires is available at the RAC’s website, www. rubberassociation.ca. The TIRF report, entitled Winter tires: A Review of Research on Effectiveness and Use, stresses that the benefits of winter tires are not well understood and clarifies commonly held myths about winter tires. Many motorists, for example, think that winter tires are only useful in regions with lots of snow. In fact, research shows that, once temperatures drop below seven degrees Celsius, winter tires perform better whether the road surface is dry, snow covered, slushy or icy. Winter tires feature specialized rubber compounds that retain elasticity in temperatures below -30 degrees Celsius and treads that grip at cold temperatures. In fact, winter tires deliver up to 50 per cent more cold-weather traction than all-seasons. Another misconception is that all-season or summer tires provide sufficient traction in winter. One of the most important advantages of winter tires is reduced stopping distance when braking. According to research cited by the TIRF report, at

temperatures just below freezing on dry pavement stopping distance for vehicles with all-season tires can be as much as 30 per cent longer than for vehicles with winter tires. Winter tires have also been shown to have better traction on a snowy surface at -40 degrees Celsius than an all-season tire has at plus four degrees Celsius. Some motorists avoid winter tires because their vehicles are equipped with Anti-lock Braking Systems, All-Wheel Drive or four-wheel drive. The TIRF report notes that these systems require sufficient traction to be effective and that winter tires provide that needed traction. Another commonly believed myth is that two winter tires, rather than a set of four, is sufficiently safe. Mixing different types of tires creates a traction imbalance between the front and rear wheel positions and can cause a vehicle to “over steer” (when the winter tires are mounted on the front axle) or “under steer” (when the winter tires are on the rear axle). These unsafe conditions can make a vehicle difficult to control, particularly when cornering. Proper tire inflation is also important during the winter-driving month. Tires

that are under-or-over inflated have a smaller footprint on the road surface, which lessens their grip. The result is reduced stopping and handling capabilities and wasted fuel. Tire inflation pressure can drop quickly during cold snaps. Every five degrees Celsius change results in about one psi change in pressure, so a temperature drop of 15 degrees Celsius would result in 10 per cent or three psi under-inflation. During winter, tire makers recommend measuring tire inflation frequently using a reliable tire gauge to ensure tires are properly inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. “Winter tires and proper inflation should be considered driving essentials from December to April,” says Maidment. “Motorists should also practice defensive driving and keep their vehicles properly maintained and prepared for winter driving.” When buying winter tires, motorists should look for the mountain snowflake symbol on the sidewall. Tires with this symbol meet or exceed tire industry snow traction requirements. Learn more by visiting www.rubberassociation.ca and click on winter driving.

It is modeled on a successful program currently being delivered in the Eastern Counties.

Through the Seniors Crisis Bed Program, eligible clients can access a crisis bed in a local retirement home at no cost, for up to seven days. The program allows the senior to be in a safe environment, while considering his/her ongoing options. The RACP has provided health services to victims of abuse since 1991

and has recently expanded their program in 2010 to include Elder Abuse Response Services. Specially trained registered nurses, available at all five Renfrew County hospitals, provide acute care, outpatient services and in-home visits to abused and at-risk seniors as well as caregivers in crisis.

Knee replacement surgery linked to longer life EMC news - With an aging population, it’s no surprise that the incidence of musculoskeletal conditions in Canada is growing, causing an increasing demand for treatment. In fact, at more than $16 billion per year, musculoskeletal conditions are the second most costly category of disease in Canada. While these statistics are cause for concern, new research has shown that knee replacements may actually contribute to the overall health of recipients in other areas, such as cardiovascular. The study looked specifically at cases of total knee replacements in

elderly patients with osteoarthritis. Three years after receiving surgery, patients had an 11 per cent lower risk of heart failure. And after seven years, their risk of dying for any reason was 50 per cent lower. “Osteoarthritis had gradually reduced my mobility, and a fall caused total disability,” says total knee replacement patient and Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation volunteer, Joan Cunnington, As a life-long tennis fanatic, it was devastating to discover that I could not play. “My surgeon said the success of my total knee replacement depended 20

per cent on him and 80 per cent on me, so I persisted with physiotherapy until I could fully bend and extend my uncooperative knee. I returned to doubles tennis playing on a club team, and we won a league trophy.” For Cunnington, a total knee replacement freed her from a life of chronic pain, and allowed her to return to the heart-pumping activities she enjoys. With an increased understanding of the importance of orthopaedic surgery in Canada, educational support must be freely available for patients, says Jennifer Gunn of the Canadian Ortho-

paedic Foundation. “We provide patients with free educational materials, as well as a unique program called Ortho Connect. Through this program we match patients with volunteers, such as Joan, who have undergone a similar surgery. A live voice who understands just what the patient is going through provides immeasurable comfort – and a personal view of what to expect and how to get ready for their return to mobility.” The above article was submitted by the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation.

agers, who provide home care throughout the region, can assess and authorize admission to these crisis beds. “These crisis beds provide an immediate short-term solution to seniors experiencing extremely difficult situations in our communities,” says Randy Penney, CEO, Renfrew Victoria Hospital. “They prevent unnecessary hospital admissions, but more importantly, they provide the type of urgent care needed by the victims of elder abuse, at risk seniors and their caregivers who may be experiencing stress and burnout.” “We believe that our individual and collective responses are strengthened by a shared understanding of the issues and a commitment to work collectively and cooperatively to meet the different needs of seniors at risk,” adds Gilles Lanteigne, CEO, Champlain CCAC. Response to the RACP Elder Abuse Response Services program has been very positive. “In the first three months, we saw the number of seniors we had expected to see in the first year,” notes Jennifer Valiquette, clinical nurse manager with the Regional Assault Care Program. “Clearly the need is there and we’re happy to be there to provide the right care.”

Entertainers sought for the first Priorpalooza John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Priorpalooza music festival has terms of reference and a new logo. Now it needs entertainers from a variety of musical genres to sign up for the festival. Priorpalooza, which will be held June 8 next year, has grown out of the Arnprior 150 celebration. The plan is to continue to mark the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anniversary with an annual one-day festival that will continue the celebration and put local musicians in the spotlight. Community Improvement and Tourism Advisory Committee chair Lynn Grinstead explained the main objective is to encompass all types

of music, so the event will have broad appeal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By doing so, we are confident that everyone in town will want to participate for some portion of the day regardless of their age,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do intend to be family friendly by having activities for youngsters in the park that day. We want the families with children to be able to come out and enjoy the day.â&#x20AC;? Grinstad said it will be a festival that is â&#x20AC;&#x153;meant to celebrate the talents of so many of our residents and former residents.â&#x20AC;? If people have family members who are musical, they are welcome to apply even if they are not longer living in town, she said. They can come back to town for the weekend and participate.

Town council has approved terms of reference for the one-day festival and the application for two grants to help with the proposed $20,000 budget. The terms of reference state the mandate is â&#x20AC;&#x153;to stage an annual music festival with programs of quality events and community activities for all members of the population, that showcases and promotes the work of local musical artists, Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage and strong sense of community.â&#x20AC;? The festival will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Participation in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pride in the Priorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; festival will be open to performing artists/groups with a priority give to those from Arnprior and municipalities bordering Arnprior,

inculding West Carleton, McNabBraeside and Pakenham. Participation is open to current and former residents. Students of local music schools will be given priority. The terms indicate payment to artists/groups will be $200 for solo/duet acts, $400 for three- to five-member groups, and to be negotiated for larger groups and headliners. Performers will be expected to be on stage for 45 minutes. Four hours is being allocated for Bluegrass-folk-blues-country-heritage type music, with two hours each for rock-classic rock and Christian gospel, and one hour each for childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music, an open mike for amateurs (soloists) and for a pop music headliner.

Community service groups will be approached to help provide auxiliary entertainment for children, such as bounce castles, face painting, dunk tank and games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very exciting,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead, noting anyone interested in participating can find more information on the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website or at town hall. FESTIVAL LOGO

The Priorpalooza logo was created by Francis Dupuis, the creator of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wonderfulâ&#x20AC;? Arnprior 150 Anniversary logo, said Grinstead. She said the committee is â&#x20AC;&#x153;very fortunateâ&#x20AC;? that Dupuis agree to create a logo for Priorpalooza at no cost and jumped at his offer.

Terry Fox Foundation provides $13.4 million for novel research EMC news - Breakthrough research into fighting cancer with viruses and investigating ways to treat acute leukemias continues thanks to a combined $13.4 million committment from the Terry Fox Foundation. The funds are raised annually by the foundation through Terry Fox community and school runs. The funding will support an Ottawa-based team conducting research into oncolytic viruses (viruses that target cancer cells and leave healthy ones unharmed) to treat various forms of cancer. A team in Vancouver is exploring why acute forms of leukemia are difficult to treat.

Youths!

The teams will conduct their work from home institutes and laboratories in seven cities and four provinces in Canada. These elite â&#x20AC;&#x153;made-in-Canadaâ&#x20AC;? teams are known internationally, having both made seminal contributions for their work in oncolytic viruses and normal and leukemic blood stems cells over the last several decades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are fortunate to have these teams conducting their work in Canada as a result of funds raised under the Terry Fox name,â&#x20AC;? said Fred Fox, manager of supporter relations for the foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For 32 years, our volunteers and donors have made it possible for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best re-

Adults!

searchers to play an important role nationally and internationally in moving forward in understanding, diagnosing and treating this disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your contributions are helping us to make a difference worldwide.â&#x20AC;? The New Frontiers project is the flagship program of the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investment portfolio, funding team science and cure-oriented, biomedical research for nearly three decades. Armed with $7.5 million, the Ottawa-based team led by Dr. John Bell, a senior scientist at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and a professor of medicine at the University of Ottawa, will continue their innovative work as

part of a trans-Canadian network of clinical and basic scientists who are focused on the application of oncolytic viruses as a way to treat cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our project aims to use the revolutionary approach of harnessing oncolytic viruses as biotherapeutics and creating effective, targeted anti-cancer agents that cause few, if any, side effects,â&#x20AC;? Bell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This funding from the Terry Fox Foundation provides us with the opportunity to advance our basic science discoveries from the laboratory to the clinic, where they can be tested and developed for the treatment of cancer patients.â&#x20AC;?

Mississippi Valley Conservation plants another 85,000 trees EMC news - Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) has planted trees throughout the watershed for many years as part of its watershed management program. Restoration, rehabilitation and enhancement planting projects help keep the water and the watershed a healthy strong environment. Working in partnership with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, the City of Ottawa and Trees Ontario, 85,000 trees were planted in the Mississippi Valley in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are fortunate in the Mississippi Valley to have a healthy forest cover for most of the western region, from Mazinaw Lake to Lanark Highlands. With rapid expansion of our rural municipalities and the City of Ottawa, ongoing tree planting is essential to keep the forests intact,â&#x20AC;? says MVC advisory services coordinator Brian Anderson. The planting of trees provides many benefits to the watershed. Replanting inland and shoreline sites enhances habitat and biodiversity, and trees are natural air filters too. Along the shore, hearty trees and shrubs provide ero-

sion and wind control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Healthy productive forests are part of our identity as a region and important to landowners and visitors of the area,â&#x20AC;? says Anderson. He added that cooperative tree planting programs allow for multiple sites to be planted at a fraction of the cost. Along with supporting the joint tree planting initiative, Anderson, a 30 year veteran of the Ministry of Natural Resources forestry program, has expanded the Mississippi Valley Conservation authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services to provide resource management advice to private landowners. This free program aims to help landowners effectively manage their property for their needs. On behalf of MVC, Anderson also provides forestry leadership to the County of Lanark and its Community Forests, helping develop a 20 year management plan with the Community Forest Working Group. For more information about tree planting, forest management and shoreline stewardship in the Mississippi Valley watershed, contact Brian Anderson at 613.259.2421 ext. 228 or visit www.mvc.on.ca/stewardship.

Seniors’ care coach program aims for $40,000 the years, including Seniors At Home, Arnprior Hospital ER campaign, local food bank, various service clubs, volunteer events and most recently the Partner’s In Caring Digital Mammography campaign. Since the annual campaign to ‘Keep the Wheels Turning’ on the Para Transit vehicle offered by Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program Inc. started on July 5 with the “Yellow Envelope Mail-Out” we have received $22,129.15. (our goal, $40,000) Thank you to the 278 families to date who have made their donation and for those many notes of inspiration we have received. “As I have often told the drivers for Seniors At Home it is a real delight and a wonderful convenience for people like me. Recently released from hospital, due to foot problems, I am not able to drive my own car. For me this is a great inconvenience which makes me appreciate even more the services offered by Seniors At Home. Many thanks and bless you all there,” Lillian

EMC news - As Reid Brothers Motor Sales Ltd. celebrates their anniversary, a valley tradition since 1954, we would like to celebrate the fact that Reid Brothers has, and continues to support the community from which this family business grew. Trevor Reid, General Manager, the third generation of Reids, is a strong supporter of our agency, Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program Inc. as an official sponsor of the Care Coach and the campaign ‘To Keep The Wheels Turning’ – which benefits seniors in Galetta and surrounding areas. Founded by Stanley Reid (Trevor’s grandfather) and Carleton Reid 58 years ago Reid Brothers supported many local charities, a tradition that continued over the years with Robert (Trevor’s father) and Eddie Reid at the helm. They just didn’t work in the town they ‘lived’ the community, giving back to many local charities and organizations over

Thank you to the corporation of the Town of Arnprior for the $1,000 donation made Wednesday, September 5th by Mayor David Reid on behalf of Council. HISTORY OF CARE COACH

The Care Coach first began operation in February of 2008 and is now into its’ fifth year of operation and because we receive no government funding we must reach out to the community each year. Since 2008 our Care Coach has been on 8776 (updated August 31, 2012) trips locally as well as to Renfrew, Pembroke, North Bay, Fitzroy Harbor, Pakenham, Constance Bay, Almonte and Ottawa. We have now reached an average of close to 300 trips per month.

Reid Bros. owner Trevor Reid , along with David Reid, has contributed greatly over the years to a seniors transport service available to some West Carleton residents.

Chinese New Year event to be interactive, informative Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is getting a jump start on planning its 2013 New Year’s celebration. The event, which is set to take place on Feb. 10, will feature interactive stations where the public will have the chance to make their own traditional food and crafts. Wen Jean Ho, founder of the support centre, said she’s hoping the event will draw a large crowd looking to learn about Chinese culture.

“(We want) the community to come out and enjoy the activities,” she said. “It’s going to be fun.” Ho said the group wants to celebrate their culture with the community by hosting a more interactive event. “Cross-cultural, cross-community; then we can really create harmony.” Booths at the New Year celebration will include: * A craft section with paper-cutting and Chinese lantern-making tables. * Food stations where attendees can learn how to make dumplings, sweet rice

balls and spring rolls. * Teaching areas where people can learn how to write Chinese characters, about traditional medicines and first aid, and a background in history of the culture. * An area with traditional clothing will be set up where attendees can try on the garments and have their photo taken. A tea ceremony will also be performed, as will a theatrical performance. “We will tell how Chinese people celebrate the New Year,” said Ho about the performance. “The focus is interaction.”

One way to celebrate is by creating red paper lanterns. They are hung in a window or over a door during the New Year celebration, which spans 15 days. “It’s a symbol of luck for the Chinese New Year,” said Ho, adding attendees will have the opportunity to make their own lanterns at the event. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The support centre is looking for volunteers to help run each aspect of the ceremony, including the theatrical performance. “Community

members can participate in the performance,” said Ho. “We will provide the traditional dress.” She said those wishing to volunteer can call or text her to register as a volunteer at 613-440-3788. The support centre is also hoping to attract sponsorship from local businesses to help fund the event or sponsor individual tables. “If they’d like to support the programming, that’s awesome because we have no other extra funding,” said Ho, adding she’s been applying for grants to help operate the centre. The Chinese New Year

kicks off on Sunday, Feb. 10, and lasts for 15 days. The support centre will ring in the Year of the Snake on Feb. 10 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Mlacak Centre, 2500 Campeau Dr. Admission to the celebration is $2 and the funds raised will go towards funding programs for the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre. The centre is a non-profit organization that aims to establish, develop and maintain a support hub for Chinese seniors in Kanata and the surrounding areas.

Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customercentered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all fulltime employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at www.fitnessdepotottawa.com has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.
