’Trump’s wall’ ruffles staff feathers at courthouse Ministry of Attorney General spends more than $400,000 on security wall JE0REMY GRIMALDI jgrimaldi@yrmg.com A new security wall surrounding a private parking lot for justices at Newmarket courthouse - now derisively referred to by employees as "Trump’s wall" is causing plenty of consternation among court staff. The concrete wall with a decorative façade, which uses an electronic security gate that rises and falls, was erected in mid-2016 and stands about three-metres high.

It is part of a slew of new measures the Ministry of the Attorney General has been implementing since 2013 to improve safety around the courthouse in light of provincewide incidents - including an officer being shot at the Brampton courthouse in 2014. A Metroland investigation into court security found there were 300 threats and other security concerns relating to Ontario courthouses investigated last year. In Newmarket, unhappy staff say they have been told the new security gate cost more than $800,000 to build. The Ministry of Attorney General has put the figure at just under $400,000. "They don’t care about us," said one staff member who spoke on a condition of anonymity "If the justices want something, they get it,

but when we ask for something, we’re told ’it’s not in our budget or it’s not our building’. It’s a joke." He explained that, although there’s never been a threat against a Newmarket court justice in more than decade, there have been plenty of incidents involving the guards who transport prisoners. One recent incident involved a prisoner lighting a fire in the cells using toilet paper. There have also been numerous incidents of prisoners throwing feces and urine at York Regional Police special constables. The worker added there are design issues at the building that put safety at risk. Those include dangerous, pregnant or "special needs" prisoners in elevators and hallways used by the public, lawyers and jusl See SECURITY page 4

’Everybody is devasted’: East Gwillimbury family remembers daughter SIMON MARTIN smartin@yrmg.com York Region lost one of its young artists this weekend. Nineteen year-old Keely Edwards was found dead Feb. 11 in a wooded area near her East Gwillimbury home after she had been missing for three days. Police do not consider her death suspicious. For Keely’s parents, Derek and Malee Edwards, the incident is still fresh. "It’s devastating," Derek said.

"It’s not just us. It’s affected our church community. Everybody is devastated." The oldest child in the family of seven, Keely had four younger siblings: sisters Shea and Ara and brothers Morgan and Jadon. Her parents described Keely as an artist. "You almost never saw her without her sketchpad," Malee said. One of her favourite spots to draw was on the roof of the family home. Often times, when her parents would be looking for her, she

would yell from the skylight: "I’m up here." While Keely wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to pursue in terms of post-secondary education, her parents said she knew she wanted to do something with art. "She was talking about art therapy," Malee said. When she wasn’t drawing you could probably find Keely reading. Malee remembers taking her to the Georgina Public Library l See SHE page 8

1970s. "I can’t say there’s a big discrepancy in the age (between when I moved in and now) but certainly in terms of the mental and physical health, it’s huge. You look around and you see the number of wheelchairs."English remembers when there were only a handful of residents in wheelchairs, which meant there was enough space for recreational activities. "Plus, there are so many (residents) with varying degrees of dementia, there are constant interruptions," he added. "They (staff) have to spend so much of their time to provide order or restore order before they can continue the program." English is in a room with three other men, one of whom he said has many health concerns and occupies the washroom for several hours a day. Candace Chartier, CEO of the Ontario Long-Term Care Association, was at Chartwell Feb. 9 to highlight concerns with seniors’ care. That includes worries the province’s long-term care homes are unable to meet the needs of a rapidly aging population and doubts about Ontario’s ability to care for the dramatic increase in the number of elderly residents with complex needs. "It’s what keeps me up at night," Chartier said, adding there are not enough longterm care homes in the province and many of the existing ones are outdated. "It scares me that we’re not going to be prepared for the seniors coming down the pipeline. We’re not prepared now." There are many challenges facing seniors in York Region, Chartier said. There are now more than 72,500 residents over the age of 75, which is expected to grow by 76.7 per cent in the next decade and by 183 per cent in the next two decades.

tices, or poor sight lines resulting in officers not being able to see one another at all times. "There are hallways in the cells where you can’t see your partner," he said. "But anything to do with the police is put on the back burner." He added that while special constables used to be able to leave from the back door, they must now the same doors as those released from custody. "We’re the ones dealing with the bad guys," he said. "We don’t want them knowing our vehicles either. They know who we are, but we have to park in the public (parking) lot." The ministry said the idea for the wall came "directly from the local court security committee" at the courthouse made up of "judiciary, police and other partners". "The ministry takes the best available evidence and all perspectives into account in making decisions on facility upgrades and improvements," said then ministry spokesperson Brendan Crawley. "The ministry is committed to the safety of staff, judicial partners and the public within our work locations. That includes ensuring all aspects of our facilities are safe."

Sale of sex laws need to change, says ’body rubber’ Guidelines should protect sex workers, Onyx Ronin says

BILL C-36 Bill C-36 was ushered in under the Tories in 2014 and considers the selling of sex as legal, but makes the buying of "sexual services" a criminal offence. It also makes it illegal for anyone to communicate for the purpose of prostitution and bans advertising the sexual services of others.

JEREMY GRIMALDI jgrimaldi@yrmg.com Onyx Ronin lives in the shadows when she’s at work. She and countless women like her occupy the grey areas of law, somewhere between legitimacy and criminality. Society at large might prefer to forget her profession exists, rather than admit it’s not only real, but a flourishing industry. She’s a "body rubber," as defined by the laws that govern her career. She has never been arrested and says she sees police "maybe once a year." People might think Ronin, her working name, and her peers destroy families and corrupt men. But she sees her job in a different light and believes you should, too. "I feel that I relieve a lot of road rage," she said during a recent interview. "People are stressed in this world; when they’re on the table, they are happy and relaxed. When I’m touching someone, I feel relaxed and comfortable and I’m sharing an experience with someone. "It’s about selling intimacy, the human touch, to feel connected to someone else." The 28-year-old employee of the female-owned MUSE Spa, which has locations in Vaughan and Toronto, is open about her work. She says "there’s nothing wrong with having sex for money," although that’s not what she does. "People do all sorts of things for money," she says. "I don’t understand why we are so stuck on this idea that sexuality can’t be commodified in this one particular way when people accept it being commodified in so many other ways." At the spa, she gives "full body erotic massages" largely to men aged 40 to 50. She says MUSE targets men at a higher price point, suggesting her clients are

Onyx Ronin is a body rubber (masseuse). She is standing up for the profession and saying the laws should be changed to better protect the women involved. rarely, if ever, intoxicated, and very "respectful." But she says she can’t speak generally about her profession: "As for other girls, I don’t know." Ronin studied classical music at the University of Toronto, before studying sex work as part of her master’s degree at York

University. After graduation, she worked retail jobs. She entered the industry at 25 and immediately saw an extraordinary jump in pay, she says, explaining she now makes between $80 and $300 an hour. According to MUSE’s website, 30 minutes with an attendant costs $120, $40

for a "door fee" and $80 of which goes to the attendant. Ronin decided to share her story and opinions after MUSE’s Vaughan location was robbed on Dec. 28, 2016. At the time, York Regional Police Det. Sgt. Dave Noseworthy said many massage parlours don’t re-

port robberies because neither employers nor employees want publicity. That, says Ronin, shows the law, in its current form, doesn’t properly protect workers in the sex trade. "I would like to see lawmakers looking through the lens that there’s nothing morally wrong with

providing sexual services for money," she said. "I would like them to ask, ’How can we help people work without shame and afford them the same rights that everyone else is protected by law?’" The current law, a complicated set of guidelines, criminalizes the buying of sex and the advertising of "sexual services", York police Det. Sgt. Thai Truong explained. Ian McLeod, a spokesperson for the Department of Justice, says any person who purchases sexual services, including manual masturbation, in any place, including a massage parlour, commits an offence. McLeod added that the Minister of Justice has committed to monitoring the impacts of Bill C-36, which regulates prostitution. Ronin, like others in her trade, needs a municipality-issued licence that has her name, photograph and home address to work as a "body rubber." She must also pass a communicable disease test.She suggests the federal government needs to draft new measures to ensure women and girls are not being forced into the profession and exploited. She envisions a society where all sex workers are in constant contact with the authorities, which would improve the chances of helping those that don’t want to be there. "It should be legal and protected, just like every other job," she said. Ronin says her job doesn’t suit everyone and businesses see a high turnover, but she insists that her experience has been positive. "As much as this job is not for everyone, it is for me," she said. "I’m a normal person, I am a happy person. I am choosing to do this."

Law should protect sex workers While it may be a touchy subject, it’s high time the federal government revisited its laws governing the sale and purchase of sexual services. Bill C-36, or the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act, was enacted in December 2014, after the Supreme Court had found a year earlier that sections of the previous laws governing prostitution were unconstitutional. It was touted by the federal government as targeting purchasers of sexual services, or johns, while protecting those engaged in sex work. Others, however, were critical of the new law and argued it not only made sex workers more vulnerable to becoming victims of crime, but contained many of the same issues that led to its predecessor being repealed. Two years later, the profession remains a risky business for many of those in it. That’s why people such as Onyx Ronin, who works as a "body rubber" at the female-run MUSE Spa, are speaking up about the law’s shortcomings. For example, the MUSE location in Vaughan was robbed late last year and, at the time, York Regional Police Det.-Sgt. Dave Noseworthy noted many similar establishments don’t report crimes for fear of repercussions. Ronin, who has a licence for what she does and must pass a communicable disease test, says that just goes to show how inadequate the laws are when it comes to protecting those providing sexual services. Rather than "shame" people, she’d prefer to see them extended the same rights workers in any other industry enjoy, including protection under the law. Prostitution is colloquially referred to as "the world’s oldest profession", which suggests, legal or not, it will continue to happen. However, by making it and other sexual services unlawful, or shunting them into a legal grey area, it drives this activity underground, thus inviting an element of criminality that can lead to human trafficking, assaults and murders against sex workers and a host of other ills. Instead of the status quo, Ronin would like to see the laws facilitate constant contact between those in the profession and the authorities. It would not only improve safety, but also ensure no one is forced into it. We agree. While regulations would be necessary - no one wants solicitation near a school for example - the law shouldn’t endanger sex workers or foster a breeding ground for dangerous criminality.

• SAYING IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA •

A round-up of reaction online The story: York school board investigators ’overwhelmed’ with complainants I think that written submissions make a lot of sense as it will allow them to identify more serious issues and follow up in person with them. Megan Houston

The story: ’Trump’s wall’ ruffles staff feathers at Newmarket courthouse Why not just build a secure loading dock. This building needs to be replaced. Years of mould and trouble . The building is too small to service the population. Throwing good monies away on this building or upgrading that old shack is pointless. Patricia Spears

The story: Town staff against changes to Greenbelt boundary in Queensville Concrete it over. Whole thing. Let’s just destroy, spoil, screw up and ruin every damned thing we have in nature so a few rich people can get a whole lot richer. Come one, let’s just get it over with already. Jim Lynch Or maybe start fighting back? Canadians have forgotten how to stand up for their rights and for what they believe. Let’s start doing what they did in Romania for example. Rick Gisenough

The story: Town makes permit parking cheaper in downtown Stouffville better enforcement of the 3 hour limit would be better IMO. David Brooks

• LETTERS • No secrecy around transport by rail Re: Too close for comfort, Jan. 26. The article ’Culture of secrecy’ surrounds transportation of hazardous materials perpetuates a number of myths about Canada’s railway industry, chiefly that we are not transparent about the dangerous goods we move and that we are self-regulated. Canada’s railways have long shared information with municipalities about the goods travelling through their communities. Today, through Protective Direction 36, Canada’s railways provide information to hundreds of municipalities to help them properly train for, and respond to, a potential incident. This information contains detailed information about the commodities that transit through each municipality. Each jurisdiction’s designated emergency planning official has the discretion to make this information public. In addition, the AskRail mobile app gives first responders immediate access to accurate, timely information about railcar contents so they can make informed decisions in the event of a rail emergency. More than 2000 first responders across Canada have signed up for AskRail. Last summer, The Railway Association of Canada collaborated with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs to produce a video to promote the app. These transparency measures support the various levels of training and community outreach undertaken by Canada’s railways each year. In 2015, for example, the industry held more than 50 safety-related public meetings with mayors, city managers and First Nations chiefs from coast to coast. We also trained more than 6,000 first responders, railway employees and industrial plant workers on dangerous goods handling and emergency response. The suggestion that Canada’s railways are "selfregulated" is designed to imply that there is no oversight of railways. In fact, railways in Canada must comply with the Railway Safety Act, dozens of regulations and hundreds of safety rules as part of Canada’s regulatory system. These rules have the full force of regulation and government inspectors have numerous enforcement tools at their disposal. There is no secrecy surrounding the transportation of dangerous goods by rail in Canada. While we have always shared information with interested communities, we have never been more open, provid-

ed more up-to-the-minute information or trained more personnel. We believe rail safety is enhanced by working closely with communities. Michael Bourque President and CEO, Railway Association of Canada

Speak out about dangerous goods Re: Too close for comfort, Jan. 26. Given that there were 144 rails and train related accidents last year alone and that we will soon have another 30,000 new homes added to our area within 10 years, I find it disturbing that no one has given any thought to redirecting these trains to less populated areas. After looking at Mississauga Mayor, Bonnie Crombie’s website, I found that she and her local cohorts are proposing to divert rail freight traffic through Markham, Vaughan and Pickering so that they can have all-day, two-way GO Train service. This leaves Markham and Vaughan with increased volumes of freight trains, including those carrying explosive, toxic and dangerous freight through one of the densest and fastest growing population centres in the GTA. These trains would be in addition to the dozens of freight trains, including those carrying dangerous materials, that already pass through our neighbourhoods on a daily basis. Toronto residents have called on their provincial and federal elected representatives to remove dangerous goods traveling via rail through their local Toronto neighbourhoods. Why aren’t we? Peter Deboran Thornhill

Important to see the positive Today’s many negative world events demand a positive and thankful view of life. So here’s what I see: Newmarket is a great place to live. My wife and I moved here almost 17 years ago and have no intention of leaving. People are friendly, neighbours are great, and generally, drivers are courteous and careful. We have an excellent mayor and council who are trying to do all they can to make everyone’s life here safe, happy and productive. Town staff are available and helpful whenever we need them. All my questions and concerns have been answered in person rather than by an impersonal email. A few of our roads need some repair, but the roads department still carries out a damn fine service with a pretty tight budget.

Taxes benefit us all Re: Employer-provided health benefits could soon be a thing of the past, Jan. 26. In her column posted on yorkregion.com, Debra Scott, President of the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce, suggests that employee health benefit plans could soon be a thing of the past. It’s sad to say that the content of this article is typical of the approach taken by business organizations when it comes to anything having to do with taxation. By stretching the basis for the article to its illogical conclusion, the author leads us to believe that merely by placing a tax on employer contributions to health plans, this will inevitably lead to the diminution or even the abandonment of employer-provided health benefits. Employer-provided benefit plans are simply another form of employee remuneration, albeit an indirect one; and whether or not someone supports the proposal, it is not illogical to suggest that these should be treated in a manner similar to other forms of employee income. Furthermore, in making her case, I believe Ms Scott has put the cart before the horse, so to speak. She states that a tax on healthbenefit plans will result in Canadians having to pay "hundreds or thousands of dollars year". Implementing the tax would do nothing of the sort, since the only impact would be to add a taxable benefit to employee’s compensation. Only if her dire prediction of employers "opting out of offering them" could a cost increase of this magnitude be realized. The author concludes with the statement that this tax doesn’t benefit anyone except the federal government. Actually, taxes benefit all of us, in providing many of the services we take for granted in our present society, including government-provided medical coverage. Colin Guenther Aurora

As a closeted gay male growing up in York Region, I often felt alone in a world where no one would understand me. A world where I didn’t feel I could be myself. Ridden with anxiety, there was a fear of judgment. I feared that my family wouldn’t love me and that my friends would turn their backs when I revealed who I truly was. In the days before smartphones and social media, I was unable to connect with other people like me with the touch of a button. Connecting with your community and educating yourself was much more difficult in suburbia. I didn’t know who to ask questions to, who to share my fears with or how I could explore my identity that was most definitely in crisis. Was there something wrong with me? Were there others like me? These were questions I asked myself on a daily basis. Someone you know and love is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). And Pflag Canada York Region - the region’s LGBTQ support, resource and education network - is there for those in need when it seems no one else is. Every day, our compassionate volunteers are contacted by frightened adolescents and by angry, fearful or confused parents and family members from all walks of life who have questions or concerns about sexual orientation or gender identity. On the fourth Tuesday of every month, Pflag hosts a peerto-peer support meeting in Richmond Hill where you can listen, support and share. This provides a safe and confidential space for you to connect with the community. Our LGBTQ friends and family should never feel alone or like they don’t belong. No matter who you are, no matter where you’re from, no matter who you pray to, no matter who you love - you are important. You belong and your individuality has purpose and should be celebrated. Every year, members of the LGBTQ community and its allies stand in solidarity at the most colourful celebration of the year Pflag’s sellout Stand Proud York Region Charity Gala. Now in its fourth year, this elegant event celebrates the LGBTQ community’s diversity and helps educate the broader community about their struggles. On March 3, Pflag will be recognizing individuals with its OUTstanding Achievement Awards at the gala. Among those receiving awards will be international guest of honour and trans activist Aydian Dowling (@AydianDowling). Do you know someone who has significantly contributed to the LGBTQ community? Share their story and celebrate their contribution. Nominate them by Feb. 20 at pflagyork.ca for Pflag’s OUTstanding Achievements People’s Choice Award. Michael Blackburn is vice-president of Pflag York, the region’s LGBTQ support, resource and education network.

You’re just not my type

where Keely would check out the maximum 24 books and then, two weeks later, come back and check out another 24. "She was brilliant," Derek said. "She could do anything she put her mind to." He remembers going on a mission trip to Swaziland with Keely when she was 15. She had already read two books by the time they got to the layover in London. "She tells me, ’Dad I need another book’," he said. "She bought a thick John Grisham title and four

hours later she was done that and bored." Keely’s parents said she really cared about making a difference in people’s lives. She always loved helping with church outreach when they would serve meals in Toronto or soup kitchens in Keswick. A lot of people have reached out to the family since Keely’s death to tell them what a difference she made just by listening. She worked at Tim Hortons in Keswick and Sutton and really cared about the people she worked with. "She would come and

ask if we could pray for her co-worker who was having a hard time," Derek said. The family is involved in the local church community and currently attends Hope for Today Fellowship in Keswick. Faith was important to Keely. While she had questions about God, like a lot of teenagers, her parents said she enjoyed worship. It’s that faith that Malee and Derek are leaning on to get through this difficult time. "When I think of her now, I just see her up there beside the throne with her sketchpad," Derek said.

Goodwill response turns into proposed deal LISA QUEEN lqueen@yrmg.com Pointing to the 2009 Vaughan tornado, the 2011 Sutton fire and the 2013 ice storm as incidents where there were challenges delivering emergency social services to residents, York Region is working toward a partnership agreement with the Canadian Red Cross to provide humanitarian aid in future emergencies. The proposal, which involves the region, the nine local municipalities and the Red Cross, will kick in for emergencies where at least 25 households could require evacuation, said Lisa Gonsalves, the region’s director of strategies and partnerships in the community and health services department. It will cover things such as providing shelter, food, clothing and information about accessing other social services. While emergency social services have been provided by the Red Cross and other agencies in the past, the agreement will establish formal responses, Gonsalves said. The Red Cross declined to comment until the agreement is signed. While residents received the assistance they needed during the tornado, fire and ice storm, the incidents made it clear the region’s emergency humanitarian-aid response could be better, Gonsalves said. "It put our emergency plans to the test in those specific incidents and what we really found was that ... because of the good relationship we have with our local municipalities and agencies such as Red Cross and others, we were able to mobilize. But what we found was there was a need to be clearer in terms of who was supposed to do

what and who had the final say on certain things. "We had identified reception centres and community centres we could use to evacuate. But we hadn’t, at that time, formalized who would open them, who would make the call, who would organize the response . Everyone came to our beck and call but when people came to respond, sometimes it was unclear who was in charge." No residents were left without assistance during the incidents, Gonsalves said. "Everyone was supported because we had all hands on deck," she said. "We mobilized ourselves as best we could. No one slipped through the cracks in any of those events." The agreement makes sense in a growing and changing region, Gonsalves said. "Right now, we have a very large and growing region and with the population growth, with the fact that we have a two-tier government (the region and the local municipalities) system in York Region with 10 governments essentially, we felt it was time to formalize this goodwill relationship that we have with the Red Cross so that we could be more sure in an emergency that we would be able to respond in a way that would meet the needs of residents who are displaced," she said. The agreement will cost $103,000 a year, which will be used to increase the Red Cross’s ability to respond to emergencies by boosting resources and training volunteers, Gonsalves said. "It works out to be about 10 cents per person based on the 2011 Census," she said.

Nearly 10,000 Georgina residents were left without power, some for several hours, following the recent ice storm. It will be several weeks before cleanup efforts are complete.

EDUCATION

Free tuition for students through new OSAP AMANDA PERSICO apersico@yrmg.com More than 200,000 students will be eligible for free tuition under new OSAP regulations. Recently, the province announced changes to its student assistance program that will help remove financial barriers to college and university. MPP Liz Sandals and Newmarket-Aurora MPP Chris Ballard were on hand at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School in Aurora to announce the new program structure. Through program enhancements, the province is making tuition free for more than 210,000 Ontario students. Expanding access to

vides more and larger grants and loans for students from families that earn more. Qualifying full time and part time students can receive up to $13,260. There are also new opportunities for mature, married or parent students who are looking to return to school. The province has introduced an OSAP calculator tool, where in just a few clicks, students can see whether they qualify for free tuition and how much aid they could expect to receive under the new program. There is also a repayment calculator to help budget payments once a student leaves school, following a six-month repay-

college and university is part of our government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives. "We’re moving forward with the most ambitious reform of student financial assistance in North America because our government believes that a person’s ability to access postsecondary education should be based on their ability to learn, and not on their ability to pay," said Deb Matthews, advanced education and skills development minister. Under the new program, OSAP grants and loans will make the average tuition free for students whose parents make less than $50,000 a year. The program also pro-

RMC’s McDonnell claims silver in fencing JOHN CUDMORE jcudmore@yrmg.com It was a double shot of silver for Cecily McDonnell of Newmarket. The third-year engineering student at Royal Military College claimed a silver medal in women’s individual epee and helped her school to second place in team epee at the Ontario University Athletics fencing championships last weekend in Kingston.

McDonnell worked her way through the 39-competitor field to reach the final before bowing 15-9 to University of Ottawa’s Isabelle Gauthier in the gold medal match. With McDonnell fencing in the top spot, RMC reached the team final for the third straight year before bowing to Carlton University by a 45-38 aggregate score. The Newmarket Fencing Club member was named to the OUA All-Star team and RMC athlete of the week.

MacDougall commits future to NCAA’s UMass Amherst JOHN CUDMORE jcudmore@yrmg.com Decisions, decisions. A talented teenaged hockey player faces many options as he ponders future possibilities. In the case of Matthew MacDougall, he has checked a huge one off his to-do list. The Aurora resident made a verbal commitment Feb. 10 to accept a scholarship package at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a decision which provides the 16-year-old with security and clear ice ahead to focus on improving his game. The Grade 11 student at St. Andrew’s College made an official visit to the campus in Amherst, MA following the Aurora prep school’s recent MacPherson Tournament in which he scored five goals in as many games. The Minutemen were among several schools seeking his skills set on the ice. To MacDougall, UMass was simply number 1. "Right away I thought I

would enjoy it there," said the high school junior forward, who intends to return to St. Andrew’s College next year to complete his high school studies. "The facilities and the school from what I saw I would enjoy it." In accepting the UMass package, MacDougall’s becomes the sixth member of the varsity Saints committed to Division 1 NCAA programs. "We get a lot of exposure at our school," he said. "Over the years it has become what it is and known for guys going to D1 schools." Saints head coach David Manning said it is no fluke that MacDougall is turning heads. "I’m really proud of him," said Manning. "Matt is a testament to hard work and doing the right things. He is diligent in what he has to do on and off the ice and this is a good reward. "His ceiling is pretty high. He isn’t even close to being a finished product." MacDougall opted for the NCAA route ahead of the Ontario Hockey League de-

spite being a third-round pick of the Barrie Colts in last summer’s priority draft. That followed an outstanding season as a member of the York Simcoe Express minor midget squad which dominated its world during the 2015-16 season to cap an eight-year minor hockey career with the triple-A program. "I just feel the NCAA route is the best option for me with getting an education and playing hockey," explained MacDougall, who is debating between studies in kinesiology and business. "It takes time to think over the pros and cons for both sides and know that I’m making the right decision." The commitment is open-ended in terms of the year he starts at the Hockey East school. Like others at St. Andrew’s before him, MacDougall, who is listed at five-feet-nine inches and 163 pounds, may spend a season at least playing at the Jr. A level to further hone his game after he graduates from high school.

Unbeaten Hurricanes rally to tie Tigers Tigers tie with Canes, move out of basement JOHN CUDMORE jcudmore@yrmg.com LAST WEEK: Feb. 12 - Tied 4-4 at Aurora Tigers . Feb. 11 - Won 4-3 (OT) at Coboug Cougars . Feb. 9 - Won 3-1 vs. Stouffville Spirit. COMING UP: Feb. 16 vs. Lindsay Muskies, Ray Twinney Complex, 7:30 p.m. . Feb. 19 at Trenton Golden Hawks . Feb. 20 at Stouffville Spirit. GAME NOTES: Marco Bozzo scored two third-period goals as the Hurricanes rallied from a three-goal deficit to gain a single point in Aurora. Quinn Yule and Bozzo scored 75 seconds apart in the final six minutes as Newmarket erased a 4-1 deficit to extend its unbeaten streak to 10 games (8-0-2). Christian Dedonato scored

1:26 into overtime as the Hurricanes overcame three one-goal deficits to knock off the Cobourg Cougars in Cobourg. Franceso Luca had two power play goals and an assist. Marco Bozzo sent the game to overtime with less than two minutes left in regulation time . Against Stouffville, McKenzie Gray scored the winning goal midway through the second period before Christian Taylor iced the outcome in the third period. THE SKINNY: Newmarket won the season series against the Tigers with three wins and a tie in four games . The win over Stouffville was the second in succession for Newmarket in the York Region rivalry . Newmarket finished the season against Cobourg, which will host the Royal Bank Cup

national championships, with a split of four games. Both Newmarket wins were in overtime . The Hurricanes sit six points behind the Spirit for second place in the North Division. Stouffville has six games remaining to Newmarket’s five and the teams are due to clash on Family Day in Stouffville for the final time this season . Injuries have rocked the Hurricanes. For instance, Newmarket had just 14 skaters lace up Saturday night in Cobourg . With 18 of 20 points achieved in the past 10 games, it is ironic the two missed points are from against nonplayoff teams, Aurora and Mississauga Chargers. RECORD: 21-23-2-3 . 3rd in North Division, 8th seed in North-East Conference.

JOHN CUDMORE jcudmore@yrmg.com LAST WEEK: Feb. 12 - Tied 4-4 vs. Newmarket Hurricanes. Feb. 11 - Lost 3-1 vs. Whitby Fury . Feb. 10 - Won 4-3 at Lindsay Muskies. COMING UP: Feb. 15 at Burlington Cougars . Feb. 19 at Whitby Fury . Feb. 20 at Orangeville Flyers. GAME NOTES: Mel Melconian and Konner McMillan scored two goals each as the Tigers held off a late Newmarket Hurricanes surge for a tie in their final home game of the season. Aurora led 4-1 into the third period. Netminder Brayden Lachance made 45 saves in the Aurora nets . Eric Holland’s power play goal in the first period was all the Tigers could manage in losing on home ice to the

Whitby Fury. Nik Coric scored in the second and third periods for the winners . At Lindsay, Holland’s goal three minutes into the third period stood as the winner in Aurora’s win over the Muskies. Mel Melconian netted one goal and two assists. Brandon MacKinnon and Tyler Davis also scored for Aurora. THE SKINNY: It’s a matter of pride but three points from three weekend games moved the Tigers out of the North Division basement past the

Pickering Panthers . Aurora has four remaining games, including a Wednesday afternoon matinee in Burlington. The game originally appeared on the schedule as Feb. 24. Game time is 2:30 p.m. . The Tigers salvaged a single point from four games in the season series against Newmarket . Goals against Lindsay and Whitby elevated Eric Holland, now with 21, to the 20-goal club along with Mel Melconian (27). No other Tiger has reached double digits although Tyler Davis is just one away at nine. RECORD: 8-36-2-4 . 4th in North Division, 10th in North-East Conference.

Unbeaten Mustangs, Thunder spike YRAA tournament slots JOHN CUDMORE jcudmore@yrmg.com No surprises here. All three regular season division winners advanced to the Feb. 16 playoff tournament in girls senior Tier 1 volleyball. St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs and Thornlea Thunder both added to their 10-0 regular season records with a pair of victories in Tuesday’s play-in round to emerge as the top seeds when the six-team tournament serves up a daylong qualifying tournament at Thornlea Secondary School. The top two teams advance to the Feb. 22 final at St. Augustine Catholic High School in Markham. St. Max is pooled with Newmarket Raiders and

Bayview Bengals. The Thunder is joined by Unionville Wolves and Father Michael McGivney Magic. The North Division champion Mustangs had the bumpiest route to the tournament after requiring three sets before defeating McGivney 25-23, 1625, 15-13. Both teams advance to the tournament.Hoops Raiders dunk Wolverines The Newmarket Raiders bounced their way into the York Region Athletic Association quarter-finals for boys senior triple-A basketball with a convincing 67-41 win Tuesday over Westmount Wolverines. The Raiders received 19 points from Rigel Kaba as Max Goodwin and Josh Dunn had 16 each in the

victory which sends Newmarket into a Feb. 16 clash against the Maple Timberwolves, an 87-73 winner over St. Elizabeth Panthers in another round of 16 clash. Other matchups in the quarter-final round include defending regional champion Vaughan Voyageurs hosting the Stephen Lewis Sharks. Richmond Hill Raiders visit Pierre Elliott Trudeau Trailblazers while Bill Crothers is at Richmond Green Rattlers to round out the quarter-finals. The regional final is Feb. 23 at Keswick.Kolbe Mustangs outlast Ravens The St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs had their hands full in their quarter-

final series with the unheralded Sir William Mulock Ravens. After skating to a 4-4 tie in the opening game of the two-game, total points series, the Mustangs (3-2-3) outlasted the Ravens (1-5) in Tuesday’s deciding match by a 6-5 count at the Aurora Leisure Complex. St. Max scored three straight goals to overcome a 4-3 deficit after two periods then held on for the victory. Captain Matthew Minchella had a hat trick for the Mustangs. "It was a barnburner but we got the result we wanted," said Kolbe head coach Matthew Pontes. The victory earns St. Max a semifinal berth against St. Elizabeth Panthers. The best-of-three series had yet to be scheduled by noon Wednesday. The biggest surprise came in Stouffville where the St. Elizabeth Panthers scored a 2-1 victory to send the East Division’s topseeded Spartans to the sidelines. The teams skated to a 4-4 tie in Game 1. Brother Andre Cardinals face St. Theresa Lisieux Lions in the other semifinal round matchup.

Savvy Seniors

MONTHLY FEATURE DEDICATED TO SENIORS

Turn your passion into a business during retirement

Retiring? Downsizing? Or thinking about buying or selling your home?

We all have an unexplored passion that could become a business, if only we had some extra time to devote to it. Here are some key things to consider if you’d like to use your golden years to explore this possibility. t :PVSQBTTJPOCFDPNFTZPVSQSPEVDU Your passion may be photography, painting or another pursuit that has always been for fun. Beware that you may come to look at your passion differently when it becomes your work, especially if there’s a phase when things don’t go especially well. It’s important to be honest with yourself about the potential for your business and work equally hard at staying motivated. t ,OPX UIF SJTLT BOE DIBMMFOHFT Your business idea may be brilliant. But it’s also risky, so protect your retirement savings by keeping your start-up costs to a minimum and avoiding heavy debt. For example, don’t lease office space or hire employees until you absolutely have to. Early expenses eat into profits and make it difficult for a new business to survive. t 5FTUUIFNBSLFU If your venture includes a new

or different product or service, test the market before you make any rash decisions. Start with the most basic version of your idea and sell it economically — perhaps online — and gauge customer feedback to decide if your venture makes financial sense. t ,FFQ JU TJNQMF Finance your business with money you can afford to lose. If you find yourself tempted to tap into your retirement account to fund it, take it as a warning that you’re probably about to get into something you’re not financially prepared for. t %P ZPVS SFTFBSDI Creating a retirement business from your passion could be the most satisfying life decision you ever make. But before diving into a new endeavor, make sure you have all the information on taxation, licensing, and all the other vital details you must master to run a successful business. Contact an advisor for specific advice about your circumstances. More information is available from an Investors Group consultant.

HOCKEY

Hurricanes’ bottom line to success relies on its back line ing Stouffville Spirit for the seventh seed, well, you can’t think the Markham Royals are drooling at the prospect of a matchup with Newmarket. Ironically, the new No. 1 backstop in Newmarket has been sharing the load with Barrett Mundell and Jesse Hodgson since making his Hurricanes’ debut Jan. 20 in a 2-1 loss to the Pickering Panthers. From there, he is 4-0-1 and with a 1.60 goals against average and .946 save percentage. There is a backstory to Kirk’s recent duty sheet. The 19-year-old is carded as a junior affiliate, or AP, having been plucked from the roster of the Greater Ontario Junior B Hockey League’s Thorold Blackhawks. It’s a neat and handy trick for playoff time. APs are limited in the number of games (10) they can play with until their base team’s season is complete. Milne has been picking his spots with the netminder and anticipating an early playoff exit for Thorold.

That timeline was expedited Monday when the Ontario Hockey Association allowed the Blackhawks to suspend operations, leaving APs free to join their other teams. Kirk, who had played six of his allotted games, hasn’t played for the Hurricanes since Feb. 3 in a key 3-2 win at Lindsay as Milne rationed his netminder. Now, he figures to play the bulk of the games between now and the end of the season. Milne’s goaltending trilogy has been flippin’ and floppin’ of late. Now it is stabilized.

son. Ignored is the fact club licenses were rescinded following the 2016 season for Kleinburg-Nobleton, Woodbridge, Glen Shields and Nepean. The appeal process won back Kleinburg-Nobleton’s franchise in mid-January on a probationary basis for the 2017 season. However, Woodbridge lost its appeal and Glen Shields didn’t bother with the process. Recall, the OPDL started out as a program for elite players at the under-13 age bracket with 16 teams, including eight located within York Region. Now there are six. Unfortunately, who knows how many young players were left in the dark as their teams were in limbo. 55 IS THE NEW 50 Recently, it was noted in this space that a 50th anniversary season was coming up for the Aurora Tigers. That number is somewhat off the mark and slightly confusing. In fact, the Tigers name

was officially first attached to junior hockey in 1962 when a Junior C team was created bearing the Tiger name. Yes, there was a brief spell when the name was changed - illogically - to Eagles but the Tiger brand has been synonymous with junior hockey in Aurora for 55 years. JUST JAWIN’ . Look for the Aurora Tigers to return to Friday night as their main home night next season. Owner Jim Thomson recently said the move will be back to the former main night for the franchise after swapping into Sunday night and 7 p.m. starts competing against the NFL, Hometown Hockey and, of course, mom’s Sunday pot roast, proved to be a dud . The deadline for nominations for the 2017 Aurora Sports Hall of Fame is Feb. 28. Log on to aurorashof.ca for details. Nominations are open to athletes, coaches and builders/contributors. The ASHoF intends to add a category for up-andcoming athletes in Aurora for the 2017 class.

Saints head coach David Manning considers his program a competitor for young players with Junior A teams for players to attend his school play in its prep school-style program. He’s not kidding. Nor is he losing the battle for 16and 17-year-olds that at one time might be inclined to give it a go with the likes of the Aurora Tigers or Newmarket Hurricanes. The Saints have six Division I commits to NCAA schools. The entire North Division of the Ontario Junior Hockey League? One. How many Junior A teams in Canada can make claim six players bound for NCAA DI programs? Likely, none. Certainly not a one in Ontario.

The Newmarket Hurricanes are unbeaten in 10 games and headed to the playoffs. A mere few weeks ago, the latter was no certainty. The former a wish. Then, the Hurricanes were playing better than their record but a victim of inconsistent goaltending on too many nights. Much of that turnaround and rush to a playoff spot for an Ontario Junior Hockey League-best 23rd straight year can be traced to solidifying the final line of defence since head coach Thomas Milne tapped into netminder Fraser Kirk. Even on nights Kirk doesn’t play, the team is playing with new-found confidence. It may not be the second coming of Georges Vezina but it’s no secret that goaltending is vital to any success. Kirk may not get the Hurricanes past their likely North-East Conference playoff foe, the Trenton Golden Hawks, but he gives them a chance. Yet, if somehow the Hurricanes surpass the slump-

New models making their Canadian debut Continued from W3

Honda Odyssey: The next-generation Odyssey brings a host of new features and technologies for 2018, including a uniquely versatile new Magic Slide second-row seat; new CabinWatch and CabinTalk technologies. The 2018 Honda Odyssey will be powered by a 3.5-litre, direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management producing 280 with two available new transmissions – a nine-speed automatic and, for upper grades an all-new, Honda-developed 10-speed automatic.

Hyundai Elantra GT 5-Door: The all-new 2018 Elantra GT 5-Door is now longer, wider, and lower. Building on an incredibly rigid SuperStructure chassis. It also comes in two flavours, as the car can be equipped with either a 161 hp fourcylinder engine or in a new “Sport” variant equipped with a 201 hp turbocharged GDI engine mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle shifters.

Kia: The 2018 Kia Stinger is a five-passenger fastback sports sedan poised to redefine a segment currently populated by European automakers. It promises to be the highestperformance production vehicle in the company’s history and is backed by Kia Motors’ industry-leading quality and reliability. The all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza takes driving from the realm of the ordinary to the extraordinary – from transportation to personal expression. And with Cadenza, the promise of the styling is realized by advanced performance technology, beginning with a retuned 3.3litre direct injection V6 engine that generates 290 horsepower and is mated with an eightspeed Sportmatic® automatic transmission.

Mazda CX-5: The all-new 2017 CX-5 refines every aspect of Mazda’s current technology and design, breaking through the traditional trade-off between driving pleasure and pas-

senger comfort. The design of the CX-5 is ‘refined tough-ness’ that elevates the KODO concept to a new level. Inspired by traditional Japanese crafts, it pursues a minimalist aesthetic free of all non-essential elements.

Mercedes-Benz: The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ boasts a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that generates up to 603 hp. This makes it the most powerful engine to have ever been installed in an E-Class. At the same time, it is even more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard, and thus sets the benchmark in its segment. With acceleration of 3.4 seconds from 0–100 km/h, the new business sedan is at the top of its class The Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster brings all the excitement of driving a racecar to the joy of driving a convertible. This new Roadster injects fresh air into the tradition of exquisite power, with a Handcrafted AMG 4.0-litre V8 Biturbo with dry-sump lubrication. The AMG GT C produces 550 hp and peak torque of 502 lb/ft.

Volkswagen Tiguan:

The 2018 Honda Odyssey aims to make all members of the family happy.

The 2018 Tiguan is all new from the ground up. It is bigger than ever, and now offers an available third row for those times when the guest list just keeps on growing. The Tiguan is a stylish and modern com-

ABOVE: McLaren 570GT BELOW: Pagani Huayra They’re some of the most jaw-dropping cars on the planet, but spotting them on the road is a rarity. That’s what makes getting up close to the stable of exclusive exotics on display at the 2017 Canadian International AutoShow such a riveting experience for car buffs. Auto Exotica, presented by Castrol and the Globe and Mail, is a perennial favourite attraction at the show, allowing visitors to appreciate the beauty, style and artistry of dozens of the world’s most impressive cars all in one space.

“Year after year, the Canadian International AutoShow has shown its commitment to assembling a showcase of the greatest exotic cars on the market,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow. “Visitors are going to see all of the Exotic Marques available across the county and a special showcase of rare exotics owned by Canada’s most passionate collectors.” Car enthusiasts will be able to get up close to an incredible lineup that boasts Aston Martin, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Karma, McLaren, Singer, Pagani, Lotus and a six-car vintage Ferrari display presented by Ferrari of Ontario. New additions to the Auto Exotica showcase this year include a display of classic exotics from some of Canada’s most discerning collectors, presented by Autostrada Forum Magazine, which will be profiling several rare and visually stunning examples of exotic motoring in years gone by. Among the cars to be showcased by Autostrada will be: r 1971 Lamborghini Espada r 1959 Sport Special Spyder (a one-of-akind tribute car) r 1969 Chevelle done up as a Reese Bobby replica from Talladega Nights r 1963 Corvette r 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Another new entry to this popular Show

Car racing fans will be able to get up close to a 1985 Can-Am Polesitter Mark2 that ran in the Under 2 Litre class. This car ran in six races in Canada and the United States before being retired. Its top finish was a sixth place at Mosport in 1986. It has been restored by its owner and was driven at the Varac Mosport Event last June, the first time it had turned a wheel in 30 years. Mario Andretti saw the car in 2015 and signed it “Bella Macchina.” Prostate Cancer Canada will also be showcasing a specially modified 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT (valued at more than $113,000 and donated by TADA). The amazing set of wheels is being raffled off in the Rock the Road Raffle by Prostate Cancer Canada in Auto Exotica on Friday, February 24th, with 100% of the proceeds going towards prostate cancer research.

Canadian International AutoShow 2017 Concepts show the future of automotive design Every year, auto shows around the world showcase some of the forward-thinking designs and technologies coming from auto manufacturers. The 2017 Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto is no different. A number of automakers will be showing off some bold designs this year that might just offer a glimpse into what cars we’ll be driving in the years to come.

Acura Precision Concept With an emphasis on high-contrast details and the intersection of modern, sheer surfaces and muscular, organic sculpting, the Acura Precision Concept communicates Acura’s focus on performance and prestige through its ultra-low and wide stance, long dash-toaxle ratio, deeply sculpted surfaces and the debut of a new Diamond Pentagon grille. The Acura Precision Concept’s crouched and athletic stance is further emphasized by its deeply sculpted side surfaces pouring over swelling rear wheel arches covering 22-inch wheels and tires. The forward-looking concept also features signature lighting designs – in front with its Jewel Constellation LED headlights composed of organically arranged fractal elements, and in back with floating LED tail lights.

Aston Martin AM-RB 001

Aston Martin AM-RB 001 The Aston Martin-Red Bull concept hypercar AM-RB 001 will make its first appearance in North America — and global auto show debut — at the Canadian International AutoShow. The groundbreaking AM-RB 001, introduced in July at the Aston Martin headquarters in Gaydon, England, is an unprecedented fusion of form and function the likes of which has never before been seen in a road-legal vehicle. The hypercar boasts a lightweight carbon fibre frame and radical aerodynamics for unprecedented levels of downforce. At its heart is a midmounted naturally aspirated V12 engine with the potency to achieve a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio; 1 bhp per kilo of weight. The suspension system features innovative technology

The Cadillac Escala – from the Spanish word for “scale” – is a reflection of our design evolution.

INFINITI QX50 Concept The QX50 Concept showcases INFINITI’s vision for a next-generation mid-size premium crossover. A “cabin-forward” silhouette combines with muscular lines and flowing surfaces to telegraph its purpose as a dynamic and practical crossover. The QX50 Concept’s interior reflects INFINITI’s desire to challenge conventional approaches to premium interior design. INFINITI’s latest concept is the next step toward the company’s future autonomous drive support technologies. Central to the strategy for the development of all future INFINITI autonomous drive support systems, they ensure the driver retains ultimate control over their vehicle – in keeping with INFINITI’s focus on driver engagement. Furthermore, the QX50 Concept illustrates a potential application for INFINITI’s advanced Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) engine, offering drivers a powertrain that adapts to offer both power and efficiency.

Lincoln Navigator Concept Lincoln’s design team drew inspiration from luxury sailboats and yachts when designing the new concept. This influenced everything from the clean, modern lines and Storm Blue paint on the exterior that mimics the grays and blues of sea and sky, to the teak finishes, custom gear and wardrobe management system found inside. It features a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 engine delivering more than 400 horsepower and smart new technologies to make this SUV even more sure-footed on different road surfaces and in changing weather conditions. The Navigator Concept features Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which uses radar and camera technology to scan the road ahead.
