Assiniboia committee nixes Apex Street project 2-1

Katlyn Streilein 4 minute read 8:28 AM CST

The Assiniboia community committee met on Nov. 21 following a hiatus owing to the municipal election. Newly appointed councillors Shawn Dobson (St. James) and Evan Duncan (Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood) joined Janice Lukes, three-term councillor for the Waverley-West ward, at City Hall.

The committee axed a subdivision and rezoning request to widen Apex Street between Elmhurst Road and Cathcart Street to accommodate seven new detached condominiums, each of which would have had a private roadway. The two-storey buildings were slated to range in size from 2,790 to 3,689 square feet.

This proposal focused on the first of two stages. The second stage would have ushered in six additional detached bare land condominiums, depending on the availability to absorb neighbouring land. The property owners had not come to an agreement at the time of the meeting.

The proposal was met with a kickback from community members. More than two dozen individuals submitted letters of opposition to council, while the proposal garnered one letter of support. Upwards of 300 Winnipeggers signed a petition against the proposal.

Sleepy Owl Bread awakens

Like a healthy sourdough starter, Sleepy Owl Bread keeps giving.

The beloved West End bakery reopened on Nov. 22 at 7 a.m. at its original 751 Wall St. home following its closure in May.

Sleepy Owl Bread is now operated by Diversity Food Services — a social enterprise with which the bakery has a long history. Sleepy Owl Bread’s founders Joanne Toupin and Beau Burton worked at Diversity Food Services long before opening the bakery in 2013.

Things came full circle years later when Diversity Food Services began to source some of its goods, including the famed chocolate croissants, from Sleepy Owl Bread.

Westwood Collegiate to perform Rent: School Edition

Katlyn Streilein STAFF REPORTER 4 minute read Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2022

Ten years. One hundred and twenty months. Three thousand six hundred fifty days. That’s how you measure the Westwood Collegiate theatre program’s quest to produce Rent.

The Westwood Senior Musical Theatre Troupe has been rehearsing its own version of the award-winning production, Rent: School Edition, without shying away from its challenging subjects like love, AIDS, death and poverty.

Brian Toms, the head of Westwood Collegiate’s arts department, explained that many factors needed to align put on this operetta. For one, the cast needed to be diverse enough to fill the roles, as was the case with this group of Grade 11 and 12 students.

Rachel Tarrant plays Maureen Johnson, an activist for unhoused people. Tarrant, a Grade 11 student, explained that the cast had a two-hour discussion about the AIDS crisis and the context behind the music before picking up their scripts.

The Westwood Warriors AAAA girls hockey team won’t back down.

Despite battling injury and illness, the Warriors are battling for third place in the Manitoba Women’s High School Hockey League Division 3. With Murdoch MacKay sitting in first, the Warriors are in a battle with the Collège Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau Canadiennes and the Springfield Sabres. At press time, the Warriors, Canadiennes and Sabres all were on seven points.

The Warriors had a record of 3-2-1 through the week ending Nov. 10. With much of the team away due to illness, only about half the lineup was available for its Nov. 9 5-2 loss against Murdoch MacKay.

Gabriela Lerat, the Warriors’ Grade 12 team captain and centre, said her team’s performance at the Transcona East End Community Centre was exceptional, despite having a short bench.

One lifelong Westwood animal lover has broken from the pack and started her own at-home dog grooming studio.

Sydney McPhail, a 29-year-old mother of two, launched her at-home studio, Syd’s Suds, in June and has since grown her client base by nearly 100 hounds.

McPhail worked as a dog groomer at a pet store chain for seven years until she decided it was time for a change.

“It just wasn’t for me anymore,” McPhail said, as she trimmed Lui, a six-month-old Maltese poodle, during a recent interview at her new studio. “I wanted to go off on my own — I was ready for that.”

An event that saw more than 500 students from River East Transcona School division descend upon Transcona Cemetery on a brisk November morning was uniquely poignant for one veteran.

David Gibson, who served in the military from 1983 to 2020, watched as his son, 11-year-old William Gibson and classmates paid their respects at the cemetery’s freshly snow-covered Field of Honour as part of the No Stone Left Alone ceremony on Nov. 7.

“The (organizers) hadn’t been able to put this ceremony on because of COVID, so my daughter missed it — she’s 12,” Gibson said. “But, we do come out here on Decoration Day … My son is in Scouts and takes part in the Decoration Day parade.”

The No Stone Left Alone Memorial Foundation is a national organization launched in 2011 to honour military veterans by educating youth and having them place poppies on headstones leading up to Remembrance Day.

One Charleswood Legion member and Royal Canadian Air Force veteran wants people to remember the poppy as a symbol of remembrance — not war.

“It started with the troops and the people that paid the ultimate sacrifice and died,” said Phil Otis, a 37-year veteran of the Royal Canadian Air Force. “They were told that we’d never forget their service. It’s ongoing. It’s happening today. There will always be veterans.”

Born in Saint John, N.B., Otis performed an array of duties in the military, including air traffic control and humanitarian relief. Otis joined the military at just 18 years old.

“I was walking down Prince William Street, saw the recruiting sign, and I joined within a week,” Otis recalls.

A new sculpture in the University of Manitoba’s Elizabeth Dafoe Library is creating a sense of belonging for some students who have been historically underrepresented in the education system.

Acclaimed local Métis artist Val Vint unveiled her metal bison sculpture on Oct. 26 to a crowd of friends, family, faculty and students. The piece, which is currently untitled, depicts a network of book-shaped steel frames that come together to form the outline of the animal.

The sculpture is the evolution of one of Vint’s sculptures that has lived at The Forks since 2020. That 12-foot steel sculpture — titled Education is the New Bison or Chi-kishkayhitamihk si te li neu Biizon — is designed out of 200 replicas of books and other written works by Indigenous authors.

“The books and films on this bison are predominantly Indigenous authors and artists, but there are also allies,” Vint said.

Paranormal investigator Victor Martin doesn’t believe in ghosts. Or demons. He believes in spirits. When Martin feels cool air on his neck, or when his hand-held electromagnetic field meter flashes red, that’s when he’s in his element.

The 59-year-old Elmwood resident and lead investigator for Victor’s Investigation of Paranormal Inc. was recently filmed in action at the Seven Oaks House Museum for an upcoming Bell Fibe TV show titled Ghost Kitchens. The program, created by production company Folks Films, features several paranormal experts.

Without giving too much away, Martin is currently pouring through hours of audio files he recorded one early October night to isolate what he believes to be the voice of a former occupant of the house — the male patriarch.

“I spent a lot of time in there talking to the spirits,” Martin said, adding that spirits are most active at night. To communicate, move objects and make sounds, they need the electricity that exists more abundantly in humid conditions, Martin said.

WINNIPEG

The practice of cremation dates back thousands of years. Parts of the world, such as India and Nepal, still cremate the dead on traditional, open-air funeral pyres. While Canada has its own cremation methodology, some in the industry are finding ways to make the practice easier to navigate for families of the deceased.

This year, River Heights resident Lee Barringer founded Branch & Pyre, a modern, direct cremation company whose name is a nod to the ritual’s roots.

“Winnipeg has become a very funeral-heavy city over the years, but what’s happened is, years ago, we had people start what they believe is a low-cost alternative,” Barringer said, “but there’s not one person who specializes in doing 100 per cent simple, direct cremation like we do — or 100 per cent online.”
