Province limiting environmental rights: report Natural Resources Ministry a chronic offender: commissioner BY L.H. TIFFANY HSIEH

thsieh@yrmg.com

Provincial government officials are defying the will of the legislature and ignoring your right to be involved in environmental policy development, according to a report released by Ontario’s environmental watchdog yesterday. A number of ministries are limiting the public’s right to know and be involved in environmental protection, environmental commissioner Gord Miller said. He singled out the Natural Resources Ministry as a chronic offender for repeatedly refusing to post important proposals on a searchable online database, something required under the Environmental Bill of Rights to guarantee the public at least 30 days to comment on proposed government initiatives or notification of decisions.

‘He would have been gagged if he was working for the federal government.’ Gloria Marsh

York Region Environmental Alliance executive director

While the ministry has denied every application for review or investigation of suspected illegal activities in the last five years, the Northern Development and Mines and Municipal Affairs and Housing ministries have denied every application they have received since the bill came into effect 18 years ago. The Energy Ministry, on the other hand, failed to post a full proposal notice on the online registry when it announced its review of the Feed-inTariff program, which offers financial incentives to promote renewable energy. That review was posted as an information notice, which doesn’t give the public the right to comment, Mr. Miller said. The flouting of the public’s rights extends beyond refusal to use the online registry, he added. Many ministries, such as Infrastructure, are not subject to the bill. Mr. Miller said he is astounded by the level of disregard and contempt shown and hopes the report will open up more democratic decisionmaking. Mr. Miller is right on the money, York Region Environmental Alliance

Proposed youth tanning bed ban fires up teens BY TERESA LATCHFORD

it comes to the ability to make educated decisions. She did her research and decided to use indoor tanning beds modestly, stressing it was her decision to make. The proposed law could force more youth outside, where conditions aren’t as controlled, resulting in more sun burns and could mean more students with fake identification, she said. “The fact is, if youths want to use tanning beds, they will find a way.” Recent Dr. John M. Denison Secondary School graduate Vanessa Hart is thrilled to hear support for the bill. She successfully organized a tan-free prom this year in the local high school, where students

The proposed law that would ban youths from using tanning beds continues to gain momentum. With the Liberal government announcing it will back the private member’s bill tabled last April by New Democrat MPP France Gelinas, the law will have enough support to go through. The province is confident it is the right move to help curb skin cancer and escalating health care costs. But 16-year-old Rachel Cooke isn’t convinced. The Newmarket High School student, who does most of her tanning in the winter, doesn’t think people give teenagers enough credit when

took a pledge to come to prom without a tan. Other local schools, such as Sacred Heart Catholic High School, did the same. Many teenagers simply don’t understand the short and long-term risks associated with the use of indoor tanning beds, she said, pointing out most youths aren’t thinking that far into their futures. While she sees the bill as a giant step forward in the fight against skin cancer, she hopes advocates will continue to raise awareness and educate the public on the subject.

Married couples dominate York households: census BY CHRIS TRABER

ctraber@yrmg.com

Compared to Ontario, York Region has more married partners, multi-family households and persons per private household and fewer common-law couples, people living alone and seniors 85 and older. The data, from Statistics Canada’s latest 2011 census numbers focusing on families, households, marital status and living arrangements, were released Wednesday. Distilling information from 9.4 million Canadian families, up 5.5 per cent over the 2006

AFTER BEFORE

count, the census surveyed just fewer than 1.04 million York residents and 12.5 million Ontarians. From a growth perspective, York’s population grew 15.7 per cent since 2006 — a rate three times that of the province. While married couples remain the predominant family unit at 67 per cent, the statistics suggest our society is in transition, Statistics Canada demography division sociologist Anne Milan said.

Catholic charity campaign sets fundraising record BY L.H. TIFFANY HSIEH

thsieh@yrmg.com

STAFF PHOTO/SUSIE KOCKERSCHEIDT

Aurora’s Our Lady of Grace Roman Catholic Church’s Father Tim Hanley said a variety of factors contributed to his parish’s increased fundraising.

Giving in the Catholic community recently reached new heights in York Region. Local parishes increased their fundraising results by 6 per cent during this year’s Archdiocese of Toronto ShareLife fundraising appeal. In total, the annual charitable appeal raised close to $15 million in the GTA. That’s a 9.4-per-cent increase over last year’s effort and the most the campaign has ever raised for its network of Catholic charities and social service agencies, such as Catholic Community Services of York Region and Rose of Sharon Services for Young Mothers. Parishioners at Aurora’s Our Lady of Grace increased their contributions by 22 per cent, to $145,000 from last year’s $118,000. The increase in donations has to do with a growing parish of 5,000 families, a campaign-wide gift-matching challenge from an anonymous donor and the cancellation of a refugee resettlement collection in February, Father Tim Hanley said. The refugees were delayed due to turbulence in the Middle East, he said. “We noticed a tremendous increase,� he said of the campaign. “If we each give a little, a lot happens.� The St. Patrick’s Parish in Markham also raised a new record of more than $300,000 this year. That’s up from last year’s $272,000.

‘If we each give a little, a lot happens.’ Father Tim Hanley

Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church

The parish of about 6,700 families has a reputation for being generous, Father Dominic Barber said. “People have a sense of ‘This is who we are’ — that sense of identity with a generous parish,� he said. “They might not be well-off, but they still give.� Established in 1976, ShareLife reaches 34 agencies, more than 250,000 people locally and countless, regardless of religious affiliation, around the world. The campaign is the original and core funder for Catholic Community Services of York Region, the family service agency’s clinical director Doug Loweth said from his Richmond Hill office. This year, the agency received $427,000 from ShareLife to support individual and family counselling and support groups. While the agency also receives funding from sources such as the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the United Way and the federal government for immigrant settlement services, Mr. Loweth said ShareLife remains a vital lifeline. “It supports the core of the agency and the central administration function,� Mr. Loweth said, adding the organization has participated in ShareLife for more than 30 years.

Renowned genocide survivor to speak in King BY CHRIS TRABER

ctraber@yrmg.com

T

he horror of waiting for your killer is unfathomable, Immaculée Ilibagiza said. Hiding from rampaging murderers is a fear and suffering few people experience, let alone survive. Yet, for 91 days, with six other women in a cramped, concealed 12-square-foot room, Ms Illibagiza endured as Hutu Interahamwe soldiers slaughtered more than 800,000 Tutsis during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Ms Illibagiza entered the secret, room in a local pastor’s house as a vibrant, 22-year-old, 115-pound university student with a loving family. She emerged weighing just 65 pounds to find most of her family had been murdered.

BELIEF IN FAITH The New York Times bestselling author credits her survival mostly to prayer and a set of rosary beads given to her by her devout Catholic father. Anger and resentment about her situation were eating her alive and destroying her faith, but rather than succumbing to rage, she turned to faith and forgiveness. Her book, Left To Tell, is required reading in some high school classrooms and is being made into a film. She is the 2007 recipient of the Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace, was a 2006 finalist as one of Belifnet.com’s Most Inspiring People of the Year and received of the American Legacy’s Women of Strength’s Courage Award. She has been featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes.

PAPAL AUDIENCE This summer, the author, who also penned Led by Faith: Rising from the Ashes of the Rwandan Genocide, had an audience with Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican. “We met privately and he said he was happy with my work and he blessed me,” she said, her voice lilting during a telephone interview from her Manhattan home. “It was a dream come true.” Ms Ilibagaza will share her harrowing and inspirational journey from genocide survivor to internationally acclaimed motivational speaker at Marylake Shrine in King City Sept. 28 and 29. She’s looking forward to her York Region visit as she does every opportunity to share her unique story and wisdom. MESSAGE OF FORGIVENESS “My message is about forgiveness,” Ms Ilibagaza said. “For so long, I confused anger with hurt. It’s a waste of time. If I can let go, anyone can let go. “I want people to know God is real. When you pray, he listens. He will come through. You are not alone and no matter how bad things can be, God will help.” Her faith was surely tested. She remembers when the genocide began. It was extremely low tech, just machetes, spears, clubs, knives and a few guns, wielded by Hutus, the majority ethnic group, as they tried to wipe out the minority Tutsis. Tutsis were slaughtered in their tracks, wherever they were found. The killing fields grew.

Immaculée Ilibagiza is a survivor of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, in which 800,000 Tutsis were slaughtered by Hutus during a war in the African nation. Today, Ms Ilbagiza is a world-renowned writer whose books are read in school. Her latest is being made into a film.

When it was over, three out of every four Tutsis in Rwanda had been killed. Ms Ilibagaza’s father told her to run to a minister’s house three miles away and beg him to hide her. The minister was a Hutu, but he had been a friend of the family. He put her and six other women in a tiny, rarely used bathroom in a remote corner of the house, the door hidden by furniture. The women sat with their backs against the wall. They couldn’t all move at the same time. They took turns standing and stretching. The marauding Hutus lurked outside the home constantly, she said. After a few days, the suspicious hoard stormed the house, but never discovered them. She had never experienced dread of that magnitude. “It was the worst,” she recalled. “We were so scared. The pain and

fear of waiting for someone to kill you — it’s terrible.” The woman ate little, usually beans infested with insects. After time passed and their hunger grew, the bugs, too, were devoured. They had no changes of clothing, could not bathe and could only flush the toilet when the home’s main water was running.

SENSE OF BETRAYAL The panic was amplified by the sense of betrayal. One of the mob members was Ms Ilibagaza’s neighbour, who was a friend and her family’s handyman. On one occasion, she recalled hearing the man, who suspected the women were inside, taunt her. “I heard him calling my name,” she said. “He yelled, ‘I have killed 399 cockroaches and I want you to be the 400th.’” Surrounded by evil, the women endured. Barely.

The pastor kept his radio on so the women could listen. After three months of genocide, they heard French troops had finally arrived in Rwanda to protect surviving Tutsis and one French camp was just a few miles away. She persuaded the pastor to sneak them there in the middle of the night. On what she termed “liberation day”, the women, struggling to walk, arrived safely at the French compound. Having survived unspeakable savagery and the murder of her family, Ms Ilibagaza became introspective. She vowed to enlighten and encourage others to shed anger, the “baggage in the belly”, and forgive. She’s on a mission to spread the story of the genocide, hoping it can prevent future atrocities. She lectures and writes, determined to stop the inevitable revisionists who claim the genocide never happened. She also takes missions to

Rwanda twice a year and is buoyed by what she sees. Three universities have grown to 25, 55 per cent of parliamentarians are women, crime is taken seriously and the country is rebuilding. The message, like the woman, is humble. “Be grateful every day,” she said. “Believe in the power of prayer. Look into the eyes of God and trust in Him.” Ms Ilibagaza will speak at Our Lady of Grace Shrine at Marylake, 13760 Keele St., King Township, Sept. 28, 7 to 9 p.m. and Sept. 29, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Book signings will follow each lecture. Tickets are $50 for general admission and $100 for a reception with Ms Ilibagaza prior to the event, a signed book and reserved seating.

Klees wants honours for emergency workers tlatchford@yrmg.com

First responders should be honoured with a day of recognition, Newmarket-Aurora MPP Frank Klees said. Mr. Klees hopes his private member’s bill, recently introduced in the legislature for first reading, will gain the support it needs later this month to make May 1 First Responders Day to honour emergency medical service workers, firefighters and police officers. “I never presume what will happen in the legislature,� Mr. Klees said with a laugh when asked if he thought the bill will be implemented. “I am hoping it is one of those rare occasions where all parties agree.� He decided to pursue the bill after reading Newmarket author Vali Stone’s book, 9-1-1, which delves into the memories of firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses and military personnel. “These accounts confirmed for me that there are heroes among us,� he said. Everyone, from first responders to volunteers who dedicate countless hours to emergency response, deserve to be recognized for their selfless service to their communities and the province, he added. The date corresponds to Emergency Preparedness Week. The bill will be debated at Queen’s Park Sept. 27.

Infrastructure crumbling, according to report card BY TERESA LATCHFORD

tlatchford@yrmg.com

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ first report card grading municipal infrastructure gives our roads a failing grade. The first-of-its-kind report gathered information from 123 municipalities across the country, including York Region, to provide a snapshot of the state of infrastructure, such as drinking water, wastewater and stormwater networks and roads, and its management across Canada. The results indicate about 30 per cent of municipal infrastructure ranked between fair and very poor, with an estimated replacement cost of $171.8 billion nationally. The assessment found 32 per cent of roads in fair condition, but nearly 21 per cent fell into the poor or very poor categories, meaning more than half fell below the good rating. The replacement costs for roads alone is $91 billion, which will cost the average Canadian household about $7,325. It will cost an additional $2,082 per household to boost drinking water infrastructure to a good rating. Many towns and cities across the country

are wrestling with balancing budgets and addressing growing infrastructure needs, federation board member and Councillor Chris Emanuel said. “Infrastructure is the hub that allows our economy to flourish,” he added. “If the bridge crumbles, so will our economy.” Roads are how Canada transports goods and how citizens get to work and water and wastewater services contribute to quality of life. A breakdown in any of these assets could spell disaster for the region and the rest of country. To view the full report, visit fcm.ca

The report card is timely, since $2 billion in federal funding, earmarked for municipal infrastructure, is expected to run out next year. While municipalities own 60 per cent of the infrastructure in the country, they only collect eight cents of every dollar of tax collected in Canada, Mr. Emanuel explained. “Infrastructure isn’t sexy, but it’s our country’s spine,” he said. “It needs some serious attention now.” The federation will use the report to lobby

the federal government for more infrastructure funds so taxpayers aren’t burdened with the brunt of the bill through their property taxes, he added. More federal funding would address Newmarket’s need for improved water and sewer services and the extension of Hwy. 404. The federation will ask for more federal funding to address aging and new infrastructure concerns, federation board member and Richmond Hill Councillor Brenda Hogg said. “We need infrastructure to maintain our quality of life and promote employment opportunities,” she added. “York Region is young and we’re growing with capital asset plans for the next 10 years.” In the south end of the region, additional funding would assist with an extension of the Yonge Street subway line.

BY THE NUMBERS A snapshot of Canadian municipal infrastructures: 20.6 per cent of municipal roads were rated poor or very poor. 40 per cent of wastewater plants, pumping stations and storage tanks were rated very poor to fair. 30.1 per cent of pipes fell into the very poor to fair category. 15.4 per cent of drinking water infrastructure ranked very poor to fair.

No more Mr. Nice Guy for Dalton McGuinty? ISSUE: Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals struggling to connect with voters

Gwyn Morgan Guest Columnist

A

lthough Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals won a byelection in Vaughan handily, albeit by a noticeably reduced margin, the beating they took in the Kitchener-Waterloo byelection the same evening should send the premier a strong warning. The Liberals fell far short in trying to win the Kitchener-Waterloo seat Mr. McGuinty had opened up in hopes of regaining a majority. Coupled with what we were hearing from a lot of voters in Vaughan on byelection night, the Liberal setback in Kitchener-Waterloo suggests people are becoming disillusioned with the long-serving premier and aren’t quite sure what to make of him. “I can’t stand them and I used to be a die-hard Liberal,” Louie Falcone, a Vaughan voter whose wife is a teacher, told The Citizen on byelection night. “They made them (teachers) out to be the bad guys and they’re not.” That pretty well tells the story. A leader such as Mr. McGuinty develops a “brand” over the years. If he suddenly tampers with that brand, he can expect to find himself in big trouble, and that’s exactly what Mr. McGuinty has done. The result is that we heard in this byelection, a level of anger against him that was nowhere to be found in the last three provincial elections. If people had been asked before this spring to sum up Mr. McGuinty in a single phrase, they probably would have said something like “nice, decent guy”. He may not have been considered outstandingly brilliant or very charismatic, but he was “Premier Dad”, a steady, reliable, fair-minded guy. The other part of the brand Mr. McGuinty methodically built up for himself was “Education Premier”, a great friend of the teachers and a leader determined to bring harmony to the education scene after the deliberate turmoil of the Harris years. By the radically different course he has adopted since last spring, Mr. McGuinty has suddenly blown both parts of that image to bits. In his treatment of Ontario’s teachers and their unions, he has come across as nothing short of a bully — a far cry from the “nice guy” to which people have been accustomed. And in behaving, from the outset, in his dealings with the teachers in this round of contract negotiations in a deliberately confrontational manner that has brought unexpected tension and unhappiness to the education scene, Mr. McGuinty has made the public wonder what has suddenly become of the “Education Premier”, who regarded teachers as his great friends and had them and their unions as loyal supporters in turn. It might have been different if the premier had personally met with the teachers at the start of this round of contract negotiations, assured them of his continued appreciation of their work and of his support for them, apologized for what Ontario’s difficult economic circumstances were temporarily forcing him to do, and pleaded as a friend for their understanding and forgiveness. But, far from that, the stance he took from the outset was weirdly one of treating them aloofly from a distance as greedy people who weren’t satisfied with the gains they had made over the years and trying very unfairly to turn the public against them. It appears Ontario’s voters, including the people of Vaughan, aren’t quite sure who Mr. McGuinty is now. Frankly, neither are we. It may well be that he has a very short window to clear that up and return to being the premier who people felt comfortable trusting in three straight elections or the message sent in these byelections may be just the beginning of his troubles.

BOTTOM LINE: Byelection results could be beginning of end for long-serving premier.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Teachers won’t let rights be trampled Re: Teacher job action won’t change deal, editorial, Sept. 13. It is a sad day when our media, OECTA and AEFO union executives and MPPs can behave so irresponsibly and dishonourably, forgetting their actual roles and responsibilities. As a teacher, all I can say is please do your homework. Actually read Bill 115. It’s a clear-cut denial of a group of employees’ right to fair and equitable work relations with its employers. It states, “The Ontario Labour Relations Board shall not inquire into or make a decision on whether a provision of the Act ... is constitutionally valid or is in conflict with the Human Rights Code”, adding, “No term or condition included in an employment contract or collective agreement under or by virtue of this Act... shall be questioned or reviewed in any court”. What happens when a government does not allow its people to question its actions? When it believes it’s not answerable to us? Now add the fact the government can, “do anything else (it) determines is necessary in the circumstances”. Does the word dictatorship not come to mind? That’s when people are expected to follow leaders and never question their decisions or actions. Is this truly, “a time when you have to accept your fate.”? Premier Dalton McGuinty keeps insisting the act is putting students first. But it’s teachers who put this province’s students first in their lives each and every school day. We have protected and shall always protect our students best by providing them with role models, by setting the example through our words and actions. We believe in democracy and that means being able to raise our collective voices and take whatever actions are necessary to be heard. We will not stand idly by and let anyone, most especially not our representative government, trample our rights and freedoms to save face. We live the reality of our current school challenges on a regular basis. We know what’s at stake and it certainly isn’t salary increases or even a reduction in sick days.

It’s time we all held our government accountable for its delusions of grandeur and its shameful disregard and disrespect of who we are and what we stand for. As Dr. William Arthur Ward, author, educator and motivational speaker, said: “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

Community opened arms to teenage refugee An open letter to the citizens of Newmarket. A year ago, we welcomed into our home a 16-year-old refugee from war-torn Afghanistan. At the same time, you welcomed him into your community. By simply going through your day-to-day activities, you continually showed him the truth of deeply held Canadian values. No one questioned the colour of his skin or his religious beliefs except with genuine curiosity. He learned the deep respect we have for our police officers and that we fully trust them. During our elections, he watched democracy in action, as citizens of both sexes and all ages asked serious and focused questions of the candidates without fear of reprisal. At every encounter, from the grocery store to his fellow high school students, he was treated with respect and dignity. The social service workers deserve special mention for their assistance and patience. He has been awarded an impressive scholarship to study peace and international co-operation at Pearson College in British Columbia. We are proud of him, but we are equally proud of our fellow citizens, who quietly and consistently lived by the ideals Canada promises to the world.

Re: Region postpones food waste grinder ban, Sept. 16. In this story, David Coffey is quoted as saying, “If the sewage (system), can handle human waste, it can handle food waste too.” As a manager of a company producing food waste grinders, Mr. Coffey is not telling the whole truth. Yes, the wastewater treatment plant can be designed to handle the additional food waste load produced by these grinders, but the it must be made proportionately larger to handle the additional solids. The additional cost of building a larger wastewater treatment plant to handle food waste would be very significant. I’m sure neither the public nor the grinder manufacturers would be willing to pay the extra cost. The grinder ban decision should be made solely by qualified sanitary engineers trained to design wastewater treatment plants. The earlier solid waste can be removed from a system, the better the process is. HARVEY ALEXANDER PEARSON NEWMARKET

anadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) president Paul Moist reacted to government orders to shut down private medical clinics in British Columbia by writing, “Simply repeating irrational arguments is no relief for Canadians on waiting lists for health care”. A common tactic of those unable to refute a fact-based argument is to develop a mantra to be repeated again and again in the hope that it will become common belief. For example, the union leader stated, “Assumptions that the private sector would lead to more efficient health care delivery have been proven false time and again”. Just where would that be, when Canada is virtually the only country in the world that makes it a crime for private clinics to deliver so-called “medically necessary services”? Or how about this assertion: “A second for-profit tier would worsen accessibility, increase costs and lower quality for the majority of people.” Several independent studies have shown precisely the opposite. For example, the 2010 edition of the Euro-Canada Health Consumer Index 2010, from the Frontier Centre for Public Policy and Sweden-based Health Consumer Powerhouse, found that, despite the fourth highest per-capita spending, Canadian health care ranks 25th compared with 33 European countries, every one of which features a mixture of public and private spending. Not surprisingly, these countries found that money spent voluntarily for private care actually reduces costs within the public system and patients treated privately free up places on public system waiting lists. Moist also wrote: “To claim any system can be improved by dividing already scarce resources defies common sense.” But the number of patients and workers are the same. Private competition would, first, reduce the number of dues-paying members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees —bad for union leaders, but good for health care workers who gain the same freedom of choice as patients. Second, private clinics actually add to system capacity: most specialists treating patients at private clinics are unable to take more patients in the public system since capacity issues often limit their access to operating rooms and other facilities to just a few hours per week. And third, the thought that private sector management and innovation couldn’t be more efficient than a monolithic unionized governmentrun monopoly is what really “defies common sense”. No matter which side of this argument you support, laws forbidding patients from paying for their own treatment must end for the simple reason that it’s becoming impossible to fund the public system with taxpayer dollars alone. The Drummond report projects spending on Ontario’s health care system, which already devours almost half of provincial spending, will rise to 80 per cent over the next two decades, leaving all other programs with an impossibly meagre 20 per cent. The report’s authors wrote: “We challenge the government to open the door more widely for private sector involvement, not only to improve efficiencies, but also to capitalize on the huge economic potential in building a vibrant health care sector in Ontario.” The need for Canada to join other countries in allowing mixed public/ private health care funding couldn’t be clearer. If we don’t act now, not only will people dependent on other government social programs face drastic cutbacks, but those counting upon no-cost public health care will suffer ever longer waiting lists.

PUBLIC SAFETY

Aurora man faces drunk driving charges An Aurora man was charged with impaired driving Tuesday evening in Bradford after police were called to a collision. South Simcoe Police were called to the scene of a motor vehicle collision that occurred at an undisclosed intersection. Police responded and, upon arrival, determined the at-fault driver had struck the rear of another vehicle that was stopped at a red light. Police investigated and determined that the driver had been drinking. A 21-year-old Aurora man was arrested after failing a roadside alcohol screening device test. The man was arrested for over 80 mgs and taken to the station for breath tests, where he registered almost twice the legal limit. The man’s car was impounded for seven days and he faces charges for impaired driving.. His licence was suspended for 90 days.

2 assaulted during home invasion York Regional Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred in Markham Monday afternoon. At about 3 p.m., a woman knocked on an apartment door and waved a piece of paper, which was seen through the peephole by one of the victims, police said. When the door was open, five men forced their way into the apartment and assaulted two men. Police are looking for a black man and a Persian man at this time. Both were wearing black-hooded sweatshirts and shorts, police said. There is no description of the other suspects. If you have information, call police at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 6630 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, leave an anonymous tip at 1800222tips.com or text YORK and your tip to

Wastewater from provincially-approved growth to 2031 in Aurora and the remainder of Newmarket would be conveyed to the existing York Durham Sewage System (YDSS) for treatment and discharge to Lake Ontario. This growth would require an additional wastewater sewage pipe. York Region has identified a recommended route for this additional sewer close to the existing YDSS forcemain alignment principally following the Tom Taylor Trail (see map).

with youths to raise awareness about the risk and trying to get this law passed for the past six years. “I’m very excited about it finally becoming a reality,” she said. Research published in the British medical journal shows people younger than 35 who use tanning beds have an 87 per cent higher chance of developing melanoma. Having worked with youths for so long, Ms Hodgson feels the ban is needed because parents aren’t steering their children away from indoor tanning. “Sometimes, we just need to save people from themselves,” she said. Southlake regional cancer program vicepresident Dr. Louis Balogh confirmed skin cancer has been on the rise over the past number of decades, pointing out five or more sunburns doubles an individual’s risk of developing skin cancer. Emerging studies from the health-care industry are providing proof of the link between youth tanning and developing cancer later in life. When asked how effective he thinks the ban will be, he replied, “We have banned smoking and alcohol under age of majority and people still manage to do it, but the majority obey the law”. Shaun Vizzacchero, owner of California Waves in Richmond Hill, doesn’t think this law is the way to go for the province and would have rather have seen a law surrounding education for the providers. He has been in the business for more than a decade and is a national trainer with

Smart Tan, an organization that provides a training program and resources for salons. He requires each employee to be certified and pass a written exam before working in his salon. “You can’t generalize tanning and we have the education to do a proper skin analysis and create a personalized tanning schedule that is safe and tailored for each skin type,” he added. “We don’t condone tanning everyday.” He admits not all salons are affiliated with the organization and it might have been a better starting place for the province. He has very few clients 18 and younger, which isn’t uncommon because of the cost associated with tanning, he said. Peter Kalanchuk, owner of Aurora’s Tanning Zone, said youths make up quite a bit of his client base. He feels the ban will only force youths outside, where the environment isn’t nearly as controlled and the number of sunburns will increase. “Families come in to tan before going to Florida in the winter to prevent these harmful sunburns,” he added. Currently, parents need to sign a permission form if the client is under the age of majority.

About 3 in 5 York adults married: census From page A1.

“Different elements of diversity is really how families can be characterized today,� she said. “We still have married couple families dominant, but it is decreasing in share.� Within the marital status category, just less than three-fifths of York adults are married, compared to 50 per cent provincially. Within our nine municipalities, 3.8 per cent live common-law, half of the Ontario total. Nationally, among the census families, common-law couples grew rapidly, up 13.9 per cent since 2006, compared to a 3.1 per cent increase for married couples and 8 per cent for single-parent families. For the first time, common-law couples surpassed the number of single-parent families. Commonlaw couples are most prevalent in the territories and in Quebec, where they represent one in three of all families. The percentage of single, never legally married York Region adults stands on par with Ontario at 27 per cent. Canadawide, 13 per cent of people 15 and older live alone. Provincially, one in 10 within this cohort lives solo, while York’s stat in the category is 4.1 per cent. Multiple-family households are prevalent in Brampton (11 per cent), Markham (8.1 per cent), Richmond Hill (5.4 per cent) and Mississauga (5 per cent). This could be the result

of a higher proportion of immigrants in the communities, Statistics Canada says. In York Region’s census of 294,000 private households, 35 per cent are occupied by two persons and more than 10 per cent are home to five or more persons. More than 5 per cent of York’s households are defined as two or more family households. In York, the average number of persons per private household is 3.2. Provincially, it’s 2.6. The federal data gathering creates an interesting regional perspective. For example, our 1,726 square kilometres makes up 0.19 per cent of Ontario’s geography. Based on population, there are 585 York residents per square kilometre, compared to 14 provincially. The region’s population is 51 per cent female and 49 per cent male. The median age of York’s

citizenry is 39.3 years — a year younger than the Ontario median — with our males at 38.3 years and females almost two years older. Provincially, almost 2 per cent of the populous is 85 years and older. In York, it’s 1.3 per cent. Of this super senior demographic, women out number men two-to-one. Statistics dating back to 1961 show the evolution of the Canadian family. The number of families – married couples, common-law couples and lone-parent families – has more than doubled since 1961, to 9.4 million families from 4.1 million. But the proportion of married couples has dropped from 91.6 per cent to 67 per cent. In the 30 years since 1981, the number of common-law couples has more than quadrupled. In 2011, lone-parent families made up 16.3 per cent of all families, double the share of 1961, when more childbearing took place within marriage and divorce rates were lower, Statistics Canada analysis shows. In 1961, 61.5 per cent of lone parents were widowed. By 2011, most lone-parents are divorced, separated or never married, while just 17.7 per cent were widowed. – with files from TorStar News Service

Public scrutiny essential, Marsh says executive director Gloria Marsh said. “He would have been gagged if he was working for the federal government,� Ms Marsh said. “He’s right, completely, but I would have liked to know why. Why has the (Natural Resources Ministry) dropped the ball? Are they following suit with the federal government? Is it because the province is in debt? It is lobbying pressure or lack of funds?� It’s also important other ministries come under the bill for public scrutiny, Ms Marsh said. “It’s like the triple bottom line,� she said. “Is it going to be asphalt or permeable paving? You have got to look at the environmental impact.� Mr. Miller’s report was welcomed by Oak Ridges-Markham Liberal MPP Dr. Helena Jaczek. The Environment Ministry continuously works to improve transparency and takes seriously the protection of the public’s rights under the bill, she said. “We will consider the report and its recommendations very carefully,� Ms Jaczek said in a statement.

2 more cases of West Nile virus detected BY L.H. TIFFANY HSIEH

thsieh@yrmg.com

Two more confirmed human cases of West Nile virus have been reported in York Region. This brings the total number to three as of last Friday. Two men, 45 and 75, in Vaughan and one man, 76, in Newmarket are recovering at home, York associate medical officer of health Dr. Lilian Yuan said today. The region no longer discloses specific loca-

Hers is one of six probable human cases in Vaughan, Newmarket and Markham, pending lab testing. Due to an increase in mosquitoes this year caused by hot and humid temperatures that create better breeding conditions, labs are extremely busy and testing time can vary from case to case, Dr. Yuan said. The total number of mosquito pools testing positive for West Nile virus in the region has

In August, a 54-year-old Markham woman was reported as the region’s first probable human case. She is recovering at home in Thornhill and her case has not been confirmed as West Nile virus.

doubled to more than 40 in the last month. It’s the highest rate experienced since 2006. “We know the risk is widespread,” Dr. Yuan said. “The pools just confirm that.” Previously, York had two confirmed human cases of West Nile virus, one in 2011 in Vaughan, the other in 2008 in Markham.

United Way of York Region CEO Daniele Zanotti speaks during a funding announcement Monday in Markham. During the meeting, it was revealed a record-setting donation of $100,000 from a single donor was made.

Single donor gives $100K to United Way of York Region BY CHRIS TRABER

ctraber@yrmg.com

The UnitedWay ofYork Region announced its largest gift on record — $100,000 — from the estate of Robert Kidd, during Nightingale’s employee fundraising campaign kickoff in Markham Monday. On a day of firsts, the health care IT and software company launched its inaugural staff campaign to support the United Way’s ambitious $8.26-million record goal for 2012. The gift, as outlined in the The Robert Kidd Community Leadership Challenge, will match first-time donations of $1,000 or more. For longtime donors, the program matches, dollar-for-dollar, any contribution 10-per-cent more than previous donations. “People who want to make change happen in their communities will be able to amplify that change by taking the Robert Kidd Community Leadership Challenge,” United Way campaign director Rickesh Lakhani said, noting a gift of $1,000 provides a year of counselling and life skills supports for two teenagers, helping them stay in school and manage with life challenges.

To volunteer or donate to the 2012 campaign, visit york.unitedway.ca, call 905-474-9974 or e-mail info@uwyr.on.ca

“Now that’s real change.” Hopefully, this call to action will attract new donors and help the organization reach this year’s campaign goal, leadership and major individual giving cabinet chairperson Shaun Lewis said, adding people in York Region know their donation to United Way is invested in the most efficient way possible to make lasting change. By increasing the impact of leadership donations, the Robert Kidd program will help tackle the root causes of social issues through frontline investments and other innovative strategies, United Way chief executive officer Daniele Zanotti said. Donors help create opportunities for children and caregivers impacted by HIV/ AIDS, young mothers who need access to parenting programs and newcomers needing support when transitioning to new communities.

Gillis helps nurse horses back to health BY SIMON MARTIN

smartin@yrmg.com

When Pat Gillis made a trip to Niagaraon-the-Lake to look at four horses, she got more than she bargained for. The owner and operator of Harrogate Hills Riding School in Mount Albert was making the trip to see if the school could use the horses. After all, the photographs the owner provided were promising. The reality, however, was much different. The horses were being neglected, skinny and living in deplorable conditions, she said. One horse, Hawke, had a case of laminitis; the disease that brought down Secretariat. While Secretariat got the best care money could buy, Hawke had been left to wither in his stall, out of reach of food and water. The animal hadn’t seen a blacksmith for far too long, Ms Gillis said. “When I went into his dark stall to see him, I wanted to throw up and then I started to cry,” she said. “I thought to myself, ‘How could someone do this to the poor horse?’” The owner told Ms Gillis she had fallen on hard times and was doing the best she could. That wasn’t good enough for Ms Gillis. You have a responsibility to your horses to care for them or find someone else to do so, Ms Gillis said. “She could have called people who would have taken the horses,” she said. “I know if I’m in that situation, I could call my vet or my riders. I would figure something out.” The OSPCA investigated 1,200 cases involving horses last year, investigations and communications officer Brad Dewar said, noting the organization checks the validity See RESCUED, page B4.

After 100 years, Pollock not acting age BY SIMON MARTIN

smartin@yrmg.com

Russell Pollock’s life has been anything but 100 years of solitude. If the East Gwillimbury resident were to pen an autobiography, it might be entitled 100 years of physical activity. Mr. Pollock celebrated his 100th birthday Saturday, but he hardly acts his age. He just gave up riding his bicycle this year because he could only make it halfway up the hill at his place on Catering Road. Oh, and he was biking in the snow. “I have a lot of experience,” he said. The man has hardly been a withering

flower during his years in the community. When people wanted to get something done, they would often call Mr. Pollock because he had a way of swaying people to his side. He has been a farmer, worked for the Town of East Gwillimbury and York Region, been a councillor for East Gwillimbury and served as a board member for York County Hospital (now Southlake Regional Health Centre). “I kept five jobs a lot of the time,” he said. “I never asked for a job in my life.” Sit down with Mr. Pollock and he will regale you with tales of farming, land ownership and his work in the community.

He’s not short on words. “I bought (my grandfather’s farm) when I was awful young for $3,500,” he said. Although he sold it a long time ago, he said it might be worth around $250,000 now. The subject of land prices causes Mr. Pollock to shake his head. Times were different back then. Mr. Pollock remembers the great depression as a tough time to make money for a farmer. “They wouldn’t give you no money at all. It was bad. Pork was 3 cents a pound,” he said. It wasn’t difficult to find workers, however.

Plan still works, developer says BY SIMON MARTIN

WHAT ABOUT A UNIVERSITY?

smartin@yrmg.com

Even though the Queensville plan is 20 years old, the senior vice-president of Metrus Development said it is still relevant. Fraser Nelson, who was speaking on behalf of Queensville Properties, told council Monday it’s possible to have residential units going up in 2015. “I have lived with this plan for a long time and am confident if we wanted to create (a) plan again, we would end up with this plan,” he said. The seven-phase plan would have the first phase start on the west side of Leslie Street, just north of Doane Sideroad. The subsequent phases would form a semi-circle, with the fifth phase swinging around to Milne Lane, close to Leslie Street. Retail units would then hinge on milestones of population growth. Councillor Tara Roy-DiClemente has concerns about the Queensville plan. She questioned Mr. Nelson’s theory the plan doesn’t need to be drastically changed. “Has anything changed as far as best practices in the last 20 years? I certainly hope there has been progress,” she said. Ms DiClemente has some lingering questions about how the development will affect Milne Lane, as well. Councillor Marlene Johnson was on council when the plan passed. “I’m very pleased with the Queensville plan and am anxious for it to get started in the community,” she said

The plan contains land for a university. For Mr. Nelson, it is of greater importance that East Gwillimbury get a university than if the university would be at the Queensville site or on Green Lane. If the Queensville plan doesn’t have a university, councillor Cathy Morton isn’t very excited about it. “It’s just going to be another bedroom community,” she said. “It just doesn’t cut it. The whole rationale behind the plan was it was going to be different. At this point, it doesn’t seem in the cards.” The site of a potential university will be decided over a two-stage charette that will involve several members of the community, but is not open to the public. The exclusive nature of the charette troubled Mayor Virginia Hackson, but she said it is the best way forward. “There are many communities vying for these universities. I don’t want to give anybody a heads-up on our strategy,” she said. It’s critical to build a groundswell of support from community leaders, who are typically more honest in private, economic development and sustainability manager Dan Stone said. Phase one of the two stage charette process is Monday. The first phase is designed to build broad support for the concept of the university in the community.

Once the Second World War came along, Mr. Pollock was conscripted, so he went down to Toronto to tell them it simply wasn’t possible for him to fight. “I told them, ‘I can’t leave. I have so many cattle and pigs. I’m farming 325 acres’,” he said. A few months later, he found out his worker was in the barracks and marched down to Toronto again. “The guy told me, ‘Hey I remember you.’ Needless to say I didn’t have too much trouble getting my worker back.” He can hardly believe he is 100 years old. Whether it’s cutting the grass, walking or shoveling the driveway, Mr. Pollock’s zest to stay active is all-encompassing. “I feel pretty good,” he said. The family celebrated the milestone with a party Sept. 9 with York-Simcoe MP Peter Van Loan, MPP Julia Munro and East Gwillimbury Mayor Virginia Hackson in attendance. “We thought it was really great that they came to recognize and support his 100th birthday,” his daughter in-law, Connie Pollock, said. “He really appreciated it.” Mr. Pollock has two children, five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

of complaints and does everything possible to make sure owners are meeting the requirements under the law. “It is only as a last resort that we remove an animal,” he said. The nature of the complaints can be anything from health concerns to neglect to nutrition. Hawke and three other horses, Wellington, Brody and Vienna, have been at Harrogate Hills for a little more than a week now and already have put on significant weight. Not usually in the horse rescue business, Ms Gillis said there’s no way she could have left those horses on the farm. “My boarders are thinking I’m a freaking saint. It’s not like that,” she said. “Anybody in my position would have done the same thing.” But Ms Gillis is still concerned about Hawke. “I have never tried to save a horse this bad,” she said, as he snatched a carrot from her hand in the barn. “He’s got a great will to live. He deserves a shot.” His right front hoof his wrapped to help ease the pain of the laminitis. The disease is tough because it takes a year to heal and, often, the horse does not make it, Ms Gillis said. The three other horses in the field are on their way back to full strength, but it’s a long process. In fact, Wellington was shiver-

Taking care of horses can be an expensive business, which is why supporters have banded together to host a fundraiser Oct. 14 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Harrogate Hills Riding School to help these rescued horses. You can get more information about the fundraiser at the Harrogate Hills Facebook page. ing and Ms Gillis had to go fetch a jacket for him. Ms Gillis started Harrogate in 1985 in Gormley and moved to her Mount Albert location in 1995. The support from people at the farm has been amazing, Ms Gillis said. Originally, she thought people would question her for picking up the horses, but the response has been the opposite. “A person came with an envelope of cash and paid for the trailer,” she said. “It’s nice to know they care about the animals. I know in my circumstances, I couldn’t turn them away.” Harrogate Hills offers English style horseback lessons, summer riding camps, birthday parties and shows. Ms Gillis has seven part-time employees at the old-fashioned country riding stable. “Pat did this all on her own,” Newmarket’s Heather Jackson said. “Everybody at the barn has come alive.”

Kickoff! York Region football breaks huddle for 2012 season BY JOHN CUDMORE

KICKOFF

jcudmore@yrmg.com

Seven teams will break huddle when the York Region Athletic Association’s senior/varsity football season kicks off Saturday afternoon with a tripleheader in Markham. Seven survivors? Lucky seven? Seventh heaven? Point of view counts here. Sure, the league’s schedule maker may be happy as the number permits a straightforward balanced schedule, but the total number of teams — down from nine one year ago — should concern supporters of high school football. It is not unusual for the number of participating teams to bob like a cork on the sea from one season to the next, but keep in mind that as recently as 2009, 10 teams suited up in York Region’s senior ranks. For more, go to yorkregion.com

But, the collective ego of football in high schools locally takes a tough blow with the loss of the senior program at Dr. G.W. Williams Secondary School in Aurora and the varsity Woodbridge College program. Richmond Hill High School also appears to have severed its ties to football after reeling in recent years. At the junior level, eight teams will suit up for the season. “It’s the first time in a long time we’ll all play each other, so we’re excited about that,” said convenor Jeff Masterson, who also cocoaches the defending regional senior champion King City Lions. “But it is disappointing to lose teams. We were looking forward to eight teams. We’ve been working so hard to get our team (numbers) up. Now, we’re not only losing teams, but we’ve lost schools.” It is a frustrating development revealed at the league’s pre-season meeting, where Woodbridge became the latest school to fold. In fact, all sports programs at Woodbridge have been dropped from the fall agenda. “There is still a reason to start up a football program in the region,” Masterson said. “But it takes a rare combination of coaching in place, players and an administration that is on board with what you are doing.” Masterson dismisses the suggestion the incidence of injury, including concussions, has scared away players.

TEAMS AT A GLANCE HURON HEIGHTS WARRIORS Head coach: Al Rover. Key players: QB Kaleb Scott, RB Derek Pisani, Cody Murrell, RB/DB, WR Robbie Beesor, OL Mike Busse, OL Thomas Lill, NT Devon Baker-Francis, DE Conor Smith, Max Byrnes MLB. Outlook: Seeking a ninth consecutive YRAA title game appearance, the Warriors are lighter than usual in numbers with a 30-player roster that includes a dozen returning starters ... Loss of running back Christian Defreitas (broken fibula) in preseason will impact on the option-oriented offence. Burning question: After a tough loss to King City for second straight year in YRAA final, Huron

Heights will need to channel its inner Warrior. With plenty on the skill side, will depth be the issue? NEWMARKET RAIDERS Head coach: Andrew Edge. Key players: S Ryan Edwards, OL/MLB Alex Cogen, QB Dylan Brunning, DB Jake Poland, TE Mitch MacAulay, Outlook: Optimism in Raiders camp is running high with 33 players on the senior roster, including 15 returnees from 2011 and the junior program is showing similar numbers. Not earth-shattering, but a step in right direction. Burning question: Dedication is going to be the key for Raiders’ hopes of cracking the top four and entry into the Tier 1 playoffs. Are players willing to put in the time on the practice field?

“I don’t think so,” he said. “Numbers go up and down for different reasons. We have lots of juniors out this year who have never played football before, so I don’t think that’s the case at all.” Others rate the discrepancy between the top and bottom of the league and the need for an infusion of new blood among players and coaches as areas for concern. “I don’t believe football is in jeopardy in the traditionally strong programs in the YRAA until possibly several of the long-tenured coaches retire,” Markham Marauders head coach Greg Pritty said. “It is becoming increasingly difficult to find young coaches willing to commit whether they are teachers in the schools or coaches from the community. “Speaking with many of my coaching colleagues from around the league, we are a committed group when it comes to supporting high school football. “That being said, I have been looking across the table at our annual YRAA football meetings at many of the same people for the past 25 years.” Brother Andre Cardinals’ head coach Trevor Weir said sparking and maintaining player interest is the route to establishing and maintaining a program in the long-term “We will do everything in our power to continue running both a junior and a senior program here at our school,” Weir said. “It is imperative that the younger students get to play a great deal. Ninety per cent of our players entering Grade 9 never having played the game before. “They must learn and develop those skills under pressure in competition.

Two more stops before Hurricanes bring it home Last week — Saturday — Lost 2-1 (OT) at Cobourg Cougars ... Thursday — Won 5-0 at Stouffville Spirit. Coming Up — Friday at Wellington Dukes ... Saturday at Trenton Golden Hawks ... Sunday vs. Cobourg Cougars ... Game Notes — A goal by Justin Danforth 56 seconds into overtime lifted the Cobourg Cougars past the Hurricanes Saturday afternoon. Matt LeMasurier scored for Newmarket during a second period, which saw the teams trade goals ... At Stouffville, Brandon Franciso highlighted a

four-point game with two goals and Matt Wintjes made 18 saves for his first shutout of the season. Daniel Leavens, Alex Bontje and Justin Maiolino had the other Newmarket goals. The Skinny — The Hurricanes plan to salute the Newmarket Minor Hockey Association and York Simcoe Express triple-A program during their home opener Sunday against Cobourg. Players from those organizations wearing their team jerseys will be admitted for free. The team has scheduled a meet and greet with players

Despite the relative proximity of Wellington and Trenton, the Hurricanes will make two bus trips rather than a sleepover between games. Speak Up — “It will be a tough weekend,” Peca said, pointing to road games in Wellington and Trenton on consecutive nights before returning home to host the Cobourg Cougars for the Hurricanes’ home opener. “We’ll try to be smart in practice this week and watch what we are doing. Everyone wants to be full throttle and show well against Cobourg at home. Record — 2-0-1-0. — John Cudmore

Tough weekend ahead for Aurora Tigers Last week — Friday — Lost 3-2 at Trenton Golden Hawks ... Saturday — Won 4-2 vs. Lindsay Muskies. Coming Up — Tonight at Kingston Voyageurs ... Saturday vs. Whitby Fury, Aurora Community Centre, 7:30 p.m ... Sunday at Wellington Dukes. Game Notes — Robert Angiolella scored two goals, both on power plays, as the Tigers rode a 32-save effort by netminder Kevin Entmaa past the Lindsay Muskies to kick off their home schedule on a winning note. Mike Sones and captain Daniel Clairmont netted the other goals for Aurora which scored three straight goals in the second period to break a 1-1 tie ... At Trenton, the Golden Hawks scored twice during a 34-second span in the opening 3:05 and led 3-1 at the first intermission in the season opener for both teams. Trevor Hughson and Dylan Wallace scored for the Tigers. The Skinny — The Tigers face three games in four nights starting tonight in Kingston. No big deal, head coach James Richmond said, pointing to games on four straight days at the pre-season Woodchuck Classic showcase tournament in Vermont ... Daniel Lisi (knee) missed both games as a precautionary measure. Tests indicated he was experiencing the effects of an old injury ... Richmond intends to rotate returning netminders Brett Sinclair and Entmaa during the early stages of the season, hoping one emerges as the go-to guy ... Richmond

is still trying to determine which players will serve as alternates to captain Daniel Clairmont. So far, forwards Adam Moody and Lisi have received the nod ... OHL camps are spewing out players as the trickle-down effect of the NHL lockout begins. However, Richmond is wary about adding a piece by that route ... Richmond spent Tuesday in Midland with former teammate Mike Futa and the Stanley Cup. Futa, a former teammate in junior and in Europe, is the director of amateur scouting for the Los Angeles Kings and it was his day with the championship mug ... Former Tiger Ryan Johnson collected an assist on the first Trenton goal in Friday night’s contest. The Barrie resident was sent to the Golden Hawks in the off-season in a cash deal. Speak Up — “I want to see us playing a full 60-minute game ,“ Richmond said, a little concerned with his team’s approach in the final period of Saturday’s win over Lindsay. “If we drop back, we have to be more aggressive in the defensive zone.”

GRIFFITHS, Jeanne peacefully in her 89th year, on August 24, 2012.

Predeceased by her husband Edward (Red), she leaves behind her daughters Vicki (Jim McColl) and Brenda (Charles Nanacsik), grand-children Sarah and Peter Nanacsik, sisters Betty Turner and Cathie Knaggs of England and several nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Born September 2, 1923 in County Durham, England, Jeanne was number 7 of an eventual 11 children born to Edward and Lavinia Newton. In March of 1947, Jeanne immigrated to Canada and began building a life for herself, which eventually led to a career, family and a busy social life. Jeanne was a creative person, skilled in the arts of sewing, oil painting and crafts. She was also a cleaver wordsmith who would delight family and friends with verses and poems for special occasions. Jeanne was a great believer in not letting life get the better of you; an outlook she passed on to her daughters. Jeanne had a strong work ethic and believed you should do your best at all times. The end of her working life found Jeanne and Red retired to the cottage they built together in Collingwood. Eventually they sold up to be closer to family and friends. These years saw a great deal of travel, both here and abroad, the birth of two grandchildren and a slower pace to life. With Red's passing in 2000, Jeanne began to show signs of forgetfulness that became more and more worrying. Diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in 2004, she gradually needed more care in her daily life. Jeanne spent the past six years as a resident at Bradford Valley LTC, where her funny faces, queenly waves and sunny smile delighted both residents and staff. We extend our grateful thanks to the friendly, compassionate staff of Bradford Valley LTC, who took excellent care of Jeanne and made her life there a happy one. As per Jeanne's wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at Scott Funeral Home, 289 Main Street North, in Brampton, September 22nd at 1 p.m. followed by a luncheon upstairs. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto (Lewy Body Dementia notated) or charity of your choice would be appreciated. Death Notices

Metroland Media Wheelstalk.com “Yo, boss!” It was a cool evening; cool enough to drive with the windows down. Which made it easy to hear the young guy in the car beside me, even over the sonic booming of his subwoofer. “That’s some nice whip, man,” he said. “Thanks,” I said. Apparently, my “whip” was cool too. Cool enough to invite comment. The 2013 BRZ adds a new rear-wheel-drive sports car to Subaru’s award-winning, allwheel-drive lineup of passenger cars, crossovers and sport utility vehicles. It’s the result of a joint project by Subaru and Toyota and it blends Subaru engineering and Toyota design in a sexy and nimble, lightweight package with go-kart-like steering response and taut handling, balancing the power of a naturally aspirated 200 hp boxer engine. This latest Subaru boxer engine has been mounted with a 459 mm centre of gravity, lower than a Porsche Cayman. And the rear-wheel-drive layout moves the engine 240 mm farther back than in Impreza, allowing for a shorter overall length and a 53/47 percent front-to-rear weight ratio. Yup, all that and it gets pretty good fuel economy too. As with any successful joint project, there’s some argument as to who gets the credit for the whole idea, but the consensus seems to be that Toyota, feeling the need to add a spark of excitement to their lineup, leveraged their part-ownership of Subaru into the production of Please see It’s a joy, page W3

The 2013 Cayenne Diesel is the first time Porsche has offered a diesel passenger vehicle in North America, and it is also one of lowest-priced Porsches you can buy.

strikes gold Alaska Jim Robinson Metroland Media Wheelstalk.com ANCHORAGE, AK: Sometimes the wait is worth it. Available in Europe since 2009, the 2013 Cayenne marks the first time Porsche has offered a diesel in North America. Cayenne is not only the most affordable Porsche you can buy but also its best seller, with the diesel adding to the Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo lineup. Pricing for the 2013 Cayenne Diesel starts at $64,500. Power is a 3.0-litre turbo diesel rated at 240 hp and 406 lb/ft of torque that comes in as low as 1,750 rpm with a fuel consumption rating of 10.8/6.7/9.0L/100 km city/highway/combined with a top speed of 218 km/h. This is one speedy diesel with a 0-100 km/h time of 7.8 seconds and 0-160 km/h in 20.2 seconds. Porsche says the diesel is 30 per cent more fuel efficient than a gaso-

line engine of similar displacement.

a private jet – but then again – that might be the inspiration. With another double bank of touch switches on the roof, there is plenty to play with if you have the time to look up or down from the road ahead to comprehend them all. The most important of these switches are located aft of the shift lever and allow the driver to change ride height, suspension stiffness (Comfort/Normal/Sport) and AWD/ FWD/locked drive mode. Supplementing these are the “Sport” mode for spirited drivers, hill descent control and the traction/stability control on/off function. To gain access to a small gravel-bottom park beside a huge lake south of Anchorage for photos, it was necessary to extend the body up to its highest setting. This had to be done to traverse a deeply eroded earthen road so as not to damage the transfer case. With one, sometimes two, wheels up to the halfshafts, the torque splitting transferred the grunt to where it was needed to hump up and over to the park. On the other side of the coin, the body automatically lowers itself a tad at highway speeds for more straightline stability. Seats in the Cayenne remain one of the best features, being wider and longer that you might expect but nicely side bolstered so that you sort of slide into it like a ball into a baseball glove.

Audi to reveal RS 5 Cabriolet in Paris METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Audi will reveal the new 445 hp RS 5 Cabriolet at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. With the 4.2-litre V8 shared with the RS 4 Avant, the lightweight ‘acoustic hood’ convertible top of the RS 5 Cabriolet opens and closes fully automatically in 15 seconds and 17 seconds respectively – even when driving at speeds of up to 50 km/h. When open, it hardly affects the size of the spacious luggage compartment – it only requires 60 litres of its 380-litre total volume. The split rear seatbacks can be folded down individually, and a through-load facility from the boot to the rear seating area maximizes versatility. Special reinforcements contribute to the convertible body’s high rigidity, and aluminum front fenders compensate for some of the

added weight of the reinforcements. Cabriolet-specific standard features include automatic front seatbelt feeders, a wind deflector, the lighting package including LED interior lights and a rollover protection system incorporating aluminum plates which deploy upwards behind the rear head restraints. Key options include three-stage head-level heating and front seat heating for top-down comfort on slightly cooler days. As in the Coupe, the high revving, naturally aspirated 4.2-litre V8 that is hand built for the RS 5 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds. In some countries where it is allowed, the electronically limited 155 mph top speed can be elevated to 174 mph (at extra cost) if desired.

It’s a joy rowing through the gears in Subaru BRZ From page W1

this shared vehicle. The idea was explored in an FT-86 Concept that took historical styling and design cues from Toyota’s 2000GT, Sports 800 and AE86 series of cars, while bolstering performance promise with Subaru technology. And, staying true to the blended efforts of that concept, the new production version wears a variety of badges and names - debuting as the Toyota 86 in Japan and Australia, and as the GT 86 in Europe, while being released in North America as the 2013 Subaru BRZ (Boxer Rear-wheel-drive Zenith) and 2013 Scion FR-S (Front-engine Rear-wheel-drive Sport). The Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S siblings available here in Canada may not be identical twins, but they are closely related. Some comparison tests have given the BRZ a slight edge in high-speed handling but, on the whole, the two vehicles have more in common than, say, the Firebird and Camaro clones of the past, displaying minor suspension variations and unique touches in interior and exterior trim pieces. There are differences in the two companies’ marketing styles, with the Scion FR-S offering more colour choices and a lower-priced starting package that can be enhanced with individual accessories, while the slightly more upscale BRZ includes standard navigation and has most of its options wrapped up in a Sport-tech package.

My colleagues have already ably reviewed these two individual vehicles – Jim Robinson covering the first drive of the BRZ and Neil Moore at the launch of the FR-S. And both reviews are available for viewing on our WheelsTalk.com website. But can you blame me for wanting to have a little test drive myself. I booked a back-to-back comparison of two flavours of BRZ - a standard model with the six-speed manual transmission and an upscale automatic version with the Sport-tech option package. The base model tester ($27,295) came in Crystal Black Silica, a perfect shade for the sleek lines and athletic stance of this taut little coupe. Open the door and you fall into the car, more or less. Yeah, it’s that low, with a corresponding low roof height of just 1,285 mm to match, low enough for a fast-looking profile without intruding into passenger headroom up front. Hip-hugging sport buckets are bolstered like racing seats. The front seats rack back to butt up against the 2+2 second row, so forget about anything but rare passenger duty. The rear seat serves better as a briefcase and bag receptacle, and with fold-flat seat backs, it can expand the 196-litre cargo area to a space big enough for golf bags. Instrumentation is handsomely laid out with a standard navigation package featuring a 6.1-inch LCD screen

LED taillights and badging mark the rear of the BRZ. A low-profile spoiler comes with the Sport-tech Package.

and all the expected audio and connectivity goodies. The six-speed manual gearbox feels short-geared and happily encourages hooliganism, although the four-banger has enough torque (151 lb/ft) to allow skip shifting, if you’re feeling lazy. You can even cruise around town in sixth gear. But stomp the gas, release the hounds and it is a pleasure to row through the cogs, snicking the shifter into gear just before the 7400 rpm redline. Top speed is rated at 221 km/h with a 0-100 km/h time of 7.7 seconds. Fuel economy is rated at 9.6/6.6L/100km (city/hwy). My real world combined results were 9L/100km. My second tester in World Rally Blue Pearl ($30,495) started at the same base price but included a sixspeed automatic with Sport mode and paddle shifters ($1,200) and the Sport-tech Package ($2,000) that adds fog lights, spoiler, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless access and button start, leather heated seats instead of cloth, front door courtesy lights, illuminated visor mirrors and silver trim instead of black. The automatic allows for a more sedate and fuel-efficient driving experience but it can be equally frenetic and fun in Sport mode, with The 2013 Subaru BRZ, Subaru’s first-ever boxer-engined, rear-wheel-drive sports car, tested here in the base, six-speed lovely downshift engine blips and manual model (black) and in a six-speed automatic version with spoiler and Sport-tech Package (blue). lightning fast shifts.

Top speed is rated at 211 km/h with a 0-100 km/h time of 8.4 seconds. As expected, the automatic offers a better fuel efficiency rating of 8.3/5.9L/100km (city/hwy). My results averaged out to 7.6L/100km. After driving both I tend to lean towards the base model in black and the sleeker subtlety of its spoilerless design, comfortable cloth seats, and already inclusive instrumentation, even without the option package, not to mention the sheer joy of rowing through the cogs to the tune of an exuberant engine roar and exhaust note. Having said that though, the automatic would be an easy sacrifice to live with, especially for urban commuters who spend some of their driving time in downtown traffic. Regardless of those choices, the 2013 Subaru BRZ, in either form, offers a unique thrill ride in one of the best sports car packages on the road today. Not overpowered, but not overpriced either, it offers an affordable alternative for those who know that a real driver’s delight is not in brute muscle but in finding that intangible sweet spot of performance, the balance that lies somewhere between power and handling.

Local dealership delivers common-sense car care tips

Christine Mitchell, the “Car Lady” delivered a presentation on vehicle maintenance, using a combination of common sense and wit.

METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Christine Mitchell calls herself “The Car Lady,” but if she wasn’t a licensed technician with 28 years experience, she could easily perform stand-up comedy. On September 17, Mitchell addressed a full house at Highland GM in Aurora, delivering snippets of automotive wisdom interspersed with jokes and one-liners that kept the audience laughing – and focused on her message of common-sense car care. She was right at home in the dealership, having spent 12 years as a GM technician, but her words were universal. Be it the oftenrepeated message of changing your oil, or the more obscure warning about overfilling your gas tank (it can damage your charcoal canister and cost $600 or more), Mitchell gave all those in attendance some advice to consider. Also speaking at the event was Erynn Real, dealer relationship manager for GM Financial. Working in the auto industry since 1998, she

covered all the bases in purchasing a vehicle, including the common debate of whether to finance or lease. Jennifer Copley, general sales manager at Highland, noted the event was a tremendous success, giving everybody not just an entertaining evening of refreshments and hors d’oevres, but some information they can take home and use right away. “Next to your home, a vehicle is typically your second-largest purchase,” she adds. “It makes sense to gain a better understanding of how it works, and to commit to do those things we discussed tonight. I hope this event will help our guests extend the life of their investment.” Donations made at Highland Auto Professional’s ‘In the driver’s seat’ event went to POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario) to help support kids with cancer across York Region. Catering was supplied by Edward Street Bistro in Aurora.

Christine Mitchell and Highland technician Steve Fisk covered the topic of braking.

Mazda5 designed for busy two-kid family Lee Ann Waterman York Region Media Group Wheelstalk.com Before this test drive, the Mazda5 was a little off my radar, but I will admit to having two preconceptions. One was based on the first car I ever bought, a used 1986 Mazda 626 with a sun roof and a tape deck. I put thousands of kilometres on it as a junior reporter at a rural newspaper, with a long-distance boyfriend, before the brake line rusted through and my mechanic suggested it was time to move on. I loved that car. Two: The Mazda5 is encroaching on minivan territory. My husband and I are DINKS (dual income, no kids). And I don’t do minivans. This car is designed for the busy two-kid family. It has four bucket seats, all with plenty of leg room. The rear two fold down easily to more than double the cargo space, which is handy for hauling those flat boxes of youbuild-it furniture or a new bicycle home from the store. There are two additional, far less comfortable, seats at the back, but, when in use, they take up the majority of the cargo area. Perfect for car-pooling to school or soccer practice, but impractical for a family of more than four to use for more than short rides with limited gear. Sliding doors are easier than standard for strapping in kids and car seats (I may not have any children, but I know a few) and preventing

parking lot incidents involving energetic children and nearby vehicles. But the sliding doors also contribute to one of the vehicle’s worst features—its styling. I’ll admit that if it’s a minivan you’re after, good looks are likely pretty low on your ‘must have’ list. But if you’re a member of the “but-it’snot-a-minivan” crowd, styling will be a consideration and I don’t think the 2012 Mazda5 delivers. I prefer the slightly boxier look of the older model. The Mazda5 has many of the bells and whistles I want in a car—and I particularly like the steering wheel-mounted audio controls and the climate control, which allows you to set a temperature and let the car adjust the air conditioning, fan or heater to that temperature. But I was disappointed at the absence of a USB outlet for my iPod. You can plug your MP3 player into the auxiliary jack, but that means it won’t charge while it’s playing, and the sound quality suffers. An optional iPod adapter will set you back about $180. The Mazda5 is one of the few family vehicles that come with a manual transmission—a plus in my books. Purchasing a car with a manual transmission will save you about $1,000 right out of the gate on most vehicles, and $1,200 for the Mazda5. And it will be more fun to drive. I test drove the automatic with manual shift mode, which gives you the option of driving in fully automatic mode or being able to nudge the gear stick up or down to change gears. While I find these transmissions a little gimmicky, I can see their appeal for drivers who prefer a manual transmission but commute daily through stop-and-go traffic, where an automatic transmission is practically a must. Driving in either mode, I could not match Mazda’s fuel economy rating (9.5L/100km city and 6.7L/100km highway). But the car offered a smooth ride and precise steering.

For Dresden, the World Record attempt was a unique draw to the tour stop as this quiet little town is now known to hold two World Records.

Porsche Cayenne well priced, good on gas From page W1

Ride in Normal, which we used 90 per cent of the time, felt firmer than the Audi Q5 I drove earlier this year, with the steering a slight bit heavier then the Audi, but the Audi felt better to me in this regard. The highways my co-driver and I covered in Alaska seemed to be almost new, but there was lot of repaving going on. The result is very little road or wind noise got into the cabin. With the standard audio system, reception was spotty as you might expect, but the quality of the sound was great. I really liked the temporary spare that fits over the AdBlue tank. Painted construction orange with speed limit warning stickers attached, it makes anyone aware

that the spare is just that – temporary. There seems to be no segment that attracts more interest and more new models than luxury CUV/SUVs. The price of the Cayenne is right in there and, of course, it carries the magic Porsche shield on the hood. But, more than that, it now offers a super efficient diesel engine with the capability of covering 1,000 km on one tank. Porsche’s only problem now is trying to meet demand. For more reviews, videos and industry news, be sure to visit Wheelstalk.com. And please follow us on Twitter @ wheelstalk.

The interior of the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel features the classic five-pot main instrument cluster with the tach the largest and dead centre.

Porsche Cayenne Diesel 2013 AT A G L A N C E : BODY STYLE: Luxury CUV/SUV DRIVE METHOD: Front-engine, permanent all-wheel-drive ENGINE: 3.0-litre, DOHC V6 turbo diesel (240 hp, 406 lb/ft) CARGO: 62.9 cu ft

PRICE: $64,500

FUEL ECONOMY: 10.8/6.7/9.0L/100 km city/highway/combined TOW RATING: 3,500 kg (7,718 lb), roof loading, 100 kg (220 lb) Outwardly, the 2013 Porsche Cayenne is indistinguishable from the other models, except for discreet badges on each front fender.

Making the right choice starts with choice. Aimed at European buyers, the three-door version of the Hyundai i30 family debuts next week at the Paris Motor Show.

New Generation i30 to debut at Paris Motor Show METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

The third member of the New Generation i30 family makes its world debut next week at the Paris Motor Show. The three-door joins the five-door hatchback and the Tourer to extend the broad appeal of Hyundai’s ‘made for Europe’ C-segment range to an even wider audience. Central to the appeal of the three-door is its distinctive, sporty styling. Incorporating Hyundai’s ‘fluidic sculpture’ form language, the new model’s sharply-raked beltline, more angular glasshouse silhouette and longer front doors provide it with a more dynamic profile, and the effect is enhanced by changes to front and rear styling. A new, black-finished mesh insert and cen-

tral bar accentuate Hyundai’s hexagonal grille, which is flanked by new, sportier fog lamp clusters consisting of round spots connected to LED daytime running light strips. The mesh treatment is continued in the clusters, and the front end design is completed by a newly profiled lower bumper. The New Generation i30 three-door retains the positive characteristics of the five-door, providing high standards of quality, equipment and comfort. Drivers will experience European-tuned ride and handling, and can alter the settings of the FLEX STEER system to change steering assistance depending on their preference and prevailing conditions.

One of the youngest car companies in this country, Mitsubishi Motor Sales recently reached its ten-year mark in Canada. The milestone is supported by the 157,607 customers that have purchased Mitsubishi cars, sport utilities and crossovers since 2002. “Considering our relatively small size, we’ve made tremendous gains as a company by holding to our core automotive philosophy: Design and manufacture cars that are affordable, reliable, fuel efficient and fun to drive, while at the same time offering a significantly reduced environmental impact,” said Shin Fujioka, president and CEO of Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada (MMSCAN).

organization, building a strong national team of 80 employees, 83 dealerships and a national parts distribution centre; we’ve also done our part to look after less fortunate people around the world.” MMSCAN sales have grown steadily since its 2002 launch in Canada. The gradual introduction of new models, and dramatic 2004 launch of the world’s best and most comprehensive warranty (10 years or 160,000 km powertrain protection), helped to grow Mitsubishi volume in Canada. In 2011, Mitsubishi cracked the 20,000 barrier with 20,511 deliveries. So far in 2012, MMSCAN has sold 13,115 vehicles; Quebec is the company’s strongest region with over 40 per cent of overall sales in that province.

CVO Softail is one of Harley’s top hawgs STORY AND PHOTOS BY ROB BEINTEMA METROLAND MEDIA/WHEELSTALK.COM

When you get on a bike with as much bling as the 2012 Harley-Davidson CVO Softail Convertible, you know you’re dealing with something near the top of the Harley food chain. The company’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) takes existing products and tweaks them into a limited-edition lineup of moveable art, creating factory custom bikes that give owners a head start on their ride personalization projects. The CVO Softail Convertible has proved a popular choice, now in its third year of production and, as tested here, this latest 2012 version starts with a premium custom paint job that is individually finished in Abyss Blue with Catacomb Graphics.

I know, I know, enough with the airbrushed skulls, already. But the graphics are at least done in a subtly tasteful style and the deep shade of blue on the tank and fenders catches the eye with an almost luminescent quality. Other available colours include Satin Pewter, also with Catacomb Graphics and Crimson Red Sunglo with Scarlet Crystal Graphics. As for the bling, well there are almost too many chrome components to count, although some of the bigger items worth mentioning include sharp-edged five-spoke, Stinger design 18-inch wheels and the chrome mini ‘ape-hanger’ handlebars that move your fists up into the wind. Throw a leg over, slide into the seat and the first thing you will notice is one of the lowest

The 2012 Harley-Davidson CVO Softail Convertible featuring 110 cu in power, custom paint and graphics, chrome extras and an array of easily removable touring equipment.

seating positions in the Harley-Davidson lineup. You sit in this bike, not on it and the depth of the seat position somehow makes this big bike feel smaller than it actually is. The seat is comfortable, yes, even with a H-D metal badge mounted right in the middle where the sun don’t shine. The leather is decorated with reptile inserts, a styling cue repeated on the saddlebags, and even on a leather insert on the chrome air intake cover. The second thing you will notice is the amount of equipment spread out in front of you. The bike comes well loaded with keyless ignition and an alarm system marked by a CVO backlit medallion on the tank console. Cruise control is at the rider’s right thumb and a Road Tech Zumo 660 navigation and MP3 system provides turn-by-turn driving commands or music through the built-in 20 watt per channel amp and dual 3.5-inch 2-way integral speakers nestled at the base of the windshield. ABS is also standard. In contrast to the tech-happy equipment level, the gauge display is very simple, a single tank-mounted perimeter-sweeping tachometer with an inset digital display readout for the clock, odometer, dual tripmeter and gear selection indicator, along with all the usual idiot lights. The rider can scroll through the digital readouts via the combined trip/horn button at his/ her left thumb. A chrome-faced fuel gauge on the left mirrors the chromed fuel cap on the right. The windshield has been modified for 2012, vented and redesigned to be taller and wider for enhanced wind protection. And the windshield, along with the other touring features – saddlebags, pillion seat and backrest – can all be removed quickly and easily to convert the CVO Softail from long haul touring mode to solo ride in-town cruising. Those switchable elements give the CVO Softail Convertible a kind of two-bikes-in-one quality that is still fairly unique in the industry. Thumb the starter and the Screamin’ Eagle

Twin Cam 110B engine erupts, roaring to life. The motor is counter-balanced and smoother at idle than some of the other Harley engines but at 1802 cc it is still a beast. Harley-Davidson lists a 105 lb/ft torque rating at 2750 rpm; other test reports have mentioned power ratings in the ballpark of 80 hp. Regardless of the numbers, the bike pulls like a train and accelerates up to speed quickly, loping easily in the neighbourhood of 2000 rpm at highway speed. I tended to prefer fourth or fifth gear for less chunky power on country road runs but with gobs of torque available in any gear, acceleration is never a problem. Neutral is occasionally hard to find and first gear thunks in with authority but, let the motor unwind, and the six-speed Cruise Drive transmission shifts neatly enough. After two fillups, my combined fuel economy was 6.3L/100km, giving me a theoretical range of about 300 km per tank. Full floorboards add to touring comfort but they will drag easily due to the limitations of a 26-degree lean angle. Riders might have to slow to avoid grinding on some of the twistier bits, but any road irregularities are easily handled by a smoothly capable suspension. That smooth ride, complemented by the comfortable riding position and touring equipment makes this bike a road-friendly companion for either short cruises or even over the long haul. How do we sum up the 2012 Harley-Davidson CVO Softail Convertible? It’s not for the faint of heart. An almost $34K price tag reflects its premium equipment levels and limited-edition rarity. But this upscale ride offers a unique combination of stump-pulling power, elegantly displayed in a top-of-the-line chromed and custom painted package that only enhances its two-bikes-in-one convertible versatility.

It’s worth your drive.... WE’LL MAKE IT WORTH YOUR TIME!

near downtown Los Angeles, on the final leg of its journey. Endeavour will be towed using a stock 2012 Tundra CrewMax 1/2–ton pickup, identical to models currently found in Toyota dealerships, with no additional modifications made to increase towing capacity or generate more power. The Tundra CrewMax is equipped with Toyota’s powerful 5.7-litre V8 engine, producing a maximum tow capacity of 10,000 pounds. Toyota has done extensive testing and worked with The Sarens Group, a heavy lifting and engineered transport company, to develop a dolly specifically for hauling the Endeavour.
