Census shows record number of senior citizens in Canada BY CHRIS TRABER

With more people getting ready to retire than entering the workforce, providing programs and services for seniors will be a major challenge, York Region community and health services commissioner Adelina Urbanski said. Senior citizens now account for a record 14.8 per cent of Canada’s population, according to 2011 census data released Tuesday. For the first time, there were more people aged 55 to 64, the age when people typically quit jobs, than aged 15 to 24, when people join the workforce. There are now five million Canadian seniors, a 14-per-cent spike since the last Statistics Canada census in 2006. More than 130,000 of them live in York Region, where 12.4 per cent of the population is 65 and older. The first of four census data instalments to be released in 2012 didn’t surprise Ms Urbanski. In fact, the numbers confirm what the region has been tracking and preparing for, she said. A seniors strategy, though a work in progress, is in place as a proactive augment to the region’s existing and ranging services for the aged. See page 8.

York Region pitches lake-to-lake bike trail BY DAVID FLEISCHER

Getting from Lake Simcoe to Lake Ontario by car is a challenge few would face just for kicks. But hopping on your bike to make that ride? Yeah, that could be fun. You’ll get your first chance to comment this week on the region’s plans to build a lake-to-

lake route spanning the 100-kilometre distance by taking what now exists and linking it physically and under a single banner. “I want to see, when it’s fully implemented, that it’s significant not just in York Region, but the GTA,” York Region infrastructure planning director Lloyd Cheah said. “We want that to be validated by our residents.”







The route could be part of a provincial network and tourist destination for cyclists and pedestrians, Mr. Cheah said. While many segments are expected to be offroad trails, on-road biking and bike lanes will likely be included. See page 8.

WELLNESS: We’re destroying valuable source of vitamins, minerals: Stephenson


Your back yard is your salad bowl. Newmarket’s Karen Stephenson admits her friends and family gave her some questionable looks when she began educating them on what can be included in your diet. “We have been conditioned that weeds need to be destroyed,” she said. “The fact is, we have been removing a food source that offers vitamins and minerals.” With the job market still reeling from the recession, more people seeking financial assistance and more clients needing the local food pantry, it doesn’t make sense to kill plants that could make the food system more stable right here at home, she said. “The word ‘weed’ seems to have this negative connotation associated with it,” she added. “When I find a patch of edible weeds, I cultivate, work around and embrace it.” People need to be open-minded because there is an incredible amount of wild edible plants that have been labeled as weeds that have nutritional value, she said. Ms Stephenson is a writer, but her passion for wild edible food has led her to enrol in a herbal pharmacy education program. Before you pick these plants, you have to be 100 per cent sure in identification, she stressed, adding some of the edibles have nasty cousins that could make you ill.

The Advocate/The Banner/The Era, Sunday, June 3, 2012

Think of weeds as food source


Karen Stephenson extols the health benefits of weeds. There are plenty of reasons to learn more about wild edibles — they are free, genetically stronger than other food, most are drought

resistant, most are more nutritious than hybridized store produce and you get exercise by picking your own.

The local resident held her first group walk during the annual Spiritfest event at the Sharon Temple National Historic Site yesterday.

For more wild edibles, recipes or help identifying a plant, visit ediblewildfood. com

GO WILD IN YOUR BACK YARD Here are five common wild edibles that can be found locally: Alfalfa: An overlooked wonder food containing vitamins such as trace elements of B17 said to help prevent cancer, vitamins K, C and E as well as copper and iron. Identified by clusters of 10 to 20 purple flowers and three-part leaves scattered along the stem. The leaves and young shoots can be eaten raw or cooked and can be dried to make teas or soups. The seeds can be ground into powder and mixed into baked goods

to improve nutrition. Broadleaf plaintain: This perennial plant packs a punch with vitamin C and all of the Bs, calcium and magnesium. It is identified by its green, oval to egg-shaped leaves that grow in a rosette nature and long, pointed green flowers grow from the base containing seeds. The entire plant is edible, although the leaves are bitter. Blanching before adding them to a salad softens the leaves. They can be frozen for later use in sautés, soups or stews.

Chickweed: Is a small plant that boasts vitamin A, B and C and calcium, magnesium, iron and selenium. It is a common plant with small, white, starshaped flowers and oval leaves with pointed tips.

One handful of the leaves contain more than the required vitamin A daily intake. It can be identified by its dusty look when in a large patch and light green diamond leaves that are pale on the underside. It produces tiny green flowers in clusters.

your family nutrition during winter.

The leaves are best added to a salad or sandwich. When adding the plant to a cooked dish, stems and flowers can also be used.

Fans of collards, kale and spinach will like this plant, which can be added to salads, smoothies and juices, but should be eaten in small quantities when raw due to its oxalic acid levels.

Leaves are spoon-like and fleshy and have a distinctive reddish stem.

Lambs quarters: The annual wild edible that tastes earthy, similar to chard, is found in sunny areas with poor soil.

Cooking removes the acid, making it perfect to steam to eat or freeze to provide

Purslane: Can be eaten as a cooked vegetable or sprinkled in salads, soups or any dish as it contains Omega-3 levels equivalent to fish and has seven times the vitamin E of spinach.

You must be careful about identifying this plant as its cousin, the hairy-stemmed spurge, is poisonous. The easiest way to tell the difference is to snap the stem. If there is milky sap, stay away from it.

PEOPLE: Cuttings involved in Diamond Jubilee festivities

Couple reflects on royal encounters BY AMANDA PERSICO

The chance to meet a prince might come around once in a lifetime. But Newmarket’s Dennis and Greta Cutting have met Prince Charles twice in previous years. “He is very gracious,” the great-grandmother of nine said. “He was so nice and so ordinary. He spoke naturally.” Last month, Mr. and Mrs. Cutting were invited to the Diamond Jubilee celebration in Toronto to commemorate the War of 1812 with the Prince of Wales and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Mr. Cutting served as a sergeant paratrooper in the 1st airborne division of the British forces during the Second World War. While third time is usually a charm, the Cuttings didn’t get to chat with the prince this time. “He was supposed to come around and inspect the uniforms,” Mrs. Cutting said. “But it seemed they were in a rush. No matter, I’ve met him before. I really wanted to see (the Duchess of Cornwall).” In 1994, the Cuttings traveled to the Netherlands for the 50th anniversary of D-Day. Prior to Mr. Cutting voluntarily jumping into the ceremony via parachute, the prince inspected his jumping gear. Mr. Cutting even made the mistake of forgetting he was in the presence of royalty and asked casually where Prince Charles’ mother was.

To read the full story, visit “He just said, ‘Oh, she is over in your country (Canada) celebrating’, without missing a beat,” Mr. Cutting said. “He never made you feel out of place. He was normal.” The Cuttings were swept away by the buildup and formality of the ceremony last month. The couple received a royal embossed invitation and a phone call from the House of Commons. “This is my prize,” Mrs. Cutting said, pulling out the official invitation, still in its envelope. She plans to get the invitation framed and add it to her collection of photographs on the mantle. “Getting all the letters was so exciting,” she said. “It was all Earth shattering.” Mr. Cutting first encountered the royal family in 1945. After the war, he was presented to King George VI. “He thanked me for what I did,” Mr. Cutting said, remembering more than 10,000 paratroopers served and 2,000 made it out alive. Mr. Cutting was part of the parachute brigade dropped in North Africa and southern Italy in 1943. In September 1944, the division took part in Operation Market Garden, where paratroopers landed about 100 kilometres behind German lines and fought in the Battle of Arnhem.

Community comes together to help family of ducks This spring has been a difficult time for wildlife around Aurora, especially ducks. Coyotes, foxes and hawks are among the predators seen in the neighbourhood. A neighbour, who has fed ducks every day for years, noticed he has only one female coming for corn. This clever duck hid her nest well and hatched her brood safely.

But the high fence and condominium walls that keep them safe from predators also leaves them no access to food or water. Our superintendent, Don Burke, found feeding instructions online and the condo dwellers graciously consented to share their common area of lawn, while the neighbour continues to supply corn. We are all waiting for the young ducklings to grow up safely in their condo home and fly away to fend for themselves.

Protests shine spotlight on skewed priorities W

hen I heard about the student protests in Montreal, I swallowed the line that Quebec’s pampered youth pay lower fees than those in other parts of Canada, but aren’t aware education costs money. And then I went to Quebec. There, I heard a different story. After weeks of demonstrations, clearly something more profound is going on. Protesters are forcing us to confront a crucial question: What is government for? Governing is about priorities. Students can’t help but notice they aren’t high on the list. Governments across Canada have no qualms about investing vast amounts of money to exploit “natural resources”, yet they all but ignore the most precious, our children. Young people will take charge long after current leaders are gone and they’ll also be stuck with the ecological, social and economic costs of the decisions we make today. The increasing challenge of getting a post-secondary education isn’t the only issue motivating people to take to the streets of Montreal. On April 22, Earth Day, 300,000 went outside to celebrate nature. On May 22, tens of thousands

David Suzuki spontaneously mobilized to oppose the draconian measures enacted to stop the student protests. The Montreal protesters are drawing attention to a growing trend: governments often skew decisions in favour of short-term priorities, often for industrial interests. To promote those priorities, government, industry and their supporters try to stifle discussion around the real issues and demonize those who press for change or question the status quo. So, because Al Gore lives in a big house (even though he’s worked at being “carbon-neutral”), he’s labelled a hypocrite, leading anti-environmentalists to make the illogical leap that we should, therefore, ignore or

deny the science of climate change. This advancement of logical fallacy reached new lows with a blunder by the Heartland Institute, a U.S. climate change-denying organization. The institute launched a billboard campaign implying because the Unabomber, Fidel Castro and Charles Manson believe in climate change, those who agree with the scientific evidence for global warming must also be tyrants, madmen and murderers. You could just as easily, and as wrongly, conclude the opposite on the basis Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway July 22, is a climate change denier who referenced Heartland Institute “experts” in his manifesto. Heartland aborted its campaign because of massive public outrage and because funders and supporters tried to distance themselves from the organization. But the episode was another demonstration of attempts to deflect rational discussion of important issues such as global warming. And, if even tyrants, madmen, and murderers get it, why don’t our politicians? The Occupy movement also questions priorities, especially those regarding the pro-corporate agendas of many

governments. Corporations are not people, but they have similar rights and generate vast amounts of money to invest in budding politicians and lobby groups that help sidetrack important discussions. This sidetracking tactic also pops up with the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project, especially when it comes to First Nations’ concerns. Many coastal and northern communities are desperate for jobs and economic development. Enbridge is offering incentives, including employment, yet coastal First Nations realize some things are more important than money. Why aren’t we all getting that? As Canada’s government axes programs and organizations that inform us about the environment and climate change, guts environmental protection measures and shovels money to promote fossil fuel interests while wilfully ignoring urgent calls from scientists, students, First Nations, and tens of thousands of citizens, it’s up to all of us to listen and join the conversation. Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation editorial and communications specialist Ian Hanington.

CENSUS: Region implements senior strategy to meet demand

By 2061, 25% of Canadians will be older than 65 From Page 1

Planning includes enhanced partnerships with senior-centric agencies, including Community & Home Assistance to Seniors, the Central Local Health Integration Network and Community Care Access Centre. The plan helps define the region’s role in supporting our elderly, she said. “It shapes what’s appropriate, our relationships with non-profit agencies and hospitals and identifies any gaps,” she said. “It will let us know where to direct or redirect funds so we clearly know where we need to be going and what’s right for us. “It’s important because not all seniors are the same. They have different needs and challenges.” Existing programs, such as senior housing in-home care and adult day care, will need to be ramped up to accommodate the influx of older residents, she said. York Region Emergency Medical Services will also be impacted by an aging population, Ms Urbanski said, particularly by the needs of people well beyond retirement. Citing emergency transport records from 2009 to 2011, EMS annually transports 5 per cent of the region’s population. Each year, 27 per cent of residents

aged 75 and older were transported by our EMS, while 10 per cent of those aged 65 to 74 were transported by EMS. The census detailed the citizenry in York’s nine municipalities. Markham has the largest population, with 301,709 people, 12.3 per cent of whom are seniors 65 and older.

was among the lowest of the G8 countries, just slightly ahead of the United States and Russia, he said. There were 5,825 people 100 and older in Canada, up 25.7 per cent since 2006. The gender of our nation is roughly split between men at 49 per cent and women at 51 per cent.

‘It’s important because not all seniors are the same. They have different needs and challenges.’

Canadian’s median age is 40.6 years. Ontario’s population is 13.9 per cent seniors, while Nova Scotia has the highest proportion at 16 per cent. The fewest seniors live in Nunavut, where three in 100 people are 65 or older. It’s projected one in four Canadians will be 65 or older by 2061. While the ranks of Canadians aged 65 and older increased by 609,810 between 2006 and 2011, the number of children aged 14 and under grew by just 27,505, a rise of 0.5 per cent. The numbers reveal where Canadians are working and retiring. Parksville, on Vancouver Island, and Elliott Lake, had the highest proportion of seniors at 35 per cent, double the national average. Climate plays a role, with seven of the 10 municipalities with the highest proportion of seniors being in British Columbia. The statistics show retirement communities taking root in Ontario, with Cobourg, Tillsonburg and Collingwood all boasting high percentages of seniors.


King, York’s least populated area, with just less than 20,000 residents, has the region’s highest 65-plus cohort at 14.5 per cent. Whitchurch-Stouffville had the largest population surge since 2006. The municipality’s 37,628 citizens, 14.1 per cent of whom are seniors, represents a 54.3-per-cent hike in five years. Aurora, with an 11.7-per-cent population jump to 53,203 since 2006, has the lowest number of seniors, with one in 10 residents being 65 or older. The new figures offer a snapshot of who we are, Statistics Canada Demography Division analyst Jonathan Chagnon said. Expected trends were melded with interesting findings. The proportion of seniors in Canada

Bike trail would start in Sutton From Page 1

outlined in general terms. It would start in Sutton, follow the lakeshore around Cook’s Bay and stretch to Leslie Street as the main corridor. There are challenges, Mr. Cheah said, in finding routes to cut through Richmond Hill, north and south of Richmond Green. The aim is to link up with a segment cutting through Thornhill’s German Mills Settler’s Park that effectively links up with Toronto’s path along the Don River. That stretch goes all the way past Hwy. 401 and then an on-road segment takes you to Edwards Gardens, from which you can take a single, winding path clear to Lake Ontario. Getting Toronto on side with the “Lake-to-Lake” brand is another challenge, but talks have gone well so far, Mr. Cheah said. Beyond the main trail, there is also hope of creating spurs that will take cyclists east and west to points of interest throughout the region, including the natural heritage area around Lake Wilcox. The region has budgeted as much as $500,000 per year to help local municipalities develop their own elements, but no determination has been made about who will run and maintain the completed trail. “Riding in York Region is just terrific,” D’Ornellas Cycling Club president Jeff Goldberg said. The Toronto club does the majority of its riding on the region’s streets and Mr. Goldberg is a fan of anything that makes cycling safer and easier. “We have this affinity for York Region because the roads up there are really, really good. The only bad thing is it’s so popular,” he said.

Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer, from children to senior citizens. Children at Northern Montessori School in Newmarket have one among them and were inspired to help. For the past two years, the school has hosted a loonie-toonie drive to support GetRecD, a local organization that directly supports cancer patients. “When kids are aware, they go that extra bit to help,” school founder and director Cheryl Minassian said. “Kids are warm and like to give. They become all encompassing when they take on a cause.” To date, the children have raised about $800, which will help purchase laptops and pillows for chemotherapy rooms at the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre at Southlake and Princess Margaret Hospital. The laptops allow patients to surf, bank or visit social media sites while undergoing treatment. GetRecD donates pillows decked out with the GetRecD shamrock logo because it is a little piece of comfort. “Pillows are a small piece of home,” GetRecD founder and Newmarket resident Laura Daly said. “When they put their heads down, we send them good luck for their fight. We want them to know someone out there supports them and cares for them.” Cancer does not discriminate based on age, so the organization wanted to help support young adults going through treatment. “We’re seeing a lot of young adults with a

GetRecD also provides cancer patients with gift cards for gas, groceries, house cleaning and entertainment evenings. “There is so much stress and sadness associated with the disease,” Ms Daly said. “We’re all about the life experience moments.” Ms Daly also prepares battle baskets, filled with items to assist during treatment, such as peppermint candies to help with nausea, body cream and vitamin E to prevent scars from radiation and books and games to help pass time. “This isn’t a pity grab,” she said. “These people are thinking of their own battles and sometimes might forget about getting gas on the way home from the hospital.” Because Ms Daly has dedicated her life to fighting cancer, she is nominated for a 2012 Me to We award. This year, Me to We will honour six everyday Canadians dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others by thinking we before me.

NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRES MUNICIPAL CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT STUDY YONGE STREET AQUIFER WELL CAPACITY RESTORATION PROJECT The Regional Municipality of York (York Region) has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study to identify a solution to restore the full permitted capacity of York Region’s wells within the Yonge Street Aquifer area (see map), while maintaining the long-term protection of York Region’s groundwater supply for the Towns of Aurora, East Gwillimbury and Newmarket. Restoration of the reduced well capacity will form part of the ongoing responsible management of the Yonge Street Aquifer.

The Regional Municipality of York

Some of York Region’s wells operating under the Yonge Street Aquifer “Permit to Take Water” cannot currently deliver their maximum permitted water takings and/or are increasing in age and require more frequent maintenance. This groundwater exploration study will examine the groundwater resources in the study area, assess the performance of existing wells and identify a practical solution to recapture lost well capacity. Potential options to address the reduced well capacity include doing nothing, rehabilitating existing wells or drilling new wells. This Class EA study is being conducted in accordance with Schedule B of the Municipal Engineer’s Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, and as amended in 2011). Residents, agencies and other stakeholders are encouraged to provide input and comment on this Class EA study by attending consultation events or by contacting York Region directly with information, comments or questions. York Region will be hosting Public Information Centres (PICs) for this project to discuss the study background, information about the municipal wells and potential options to address capacity issues. The PICs will be arranged as an open house, all those with an interest in the project are urged to attend. The PICs will be held in the following locations: Town of East Gwillimbury Date: Tuesday, June 12, 2012 Location: East Gwillimbury Sports Complex Address: 1914B Mount Albert Road, Town of East Gwillimbury Time: 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Website covers York’s music scene BY JEREMY GRIMALDI

A pair of local musicians has launched a website focusing on York Region’s music scene. The site,, is just more than a month old, but Aurora’s Pat Mete and Newmarket’s CK Armstrong have already seen some traffic, often attracting more than 100 people per day. The site features artist profiles, events, interviews and reviews posted by Mr. Mete, Mr. Armstrong and other music enthusiasts. “We will be going out to shows and featuring bands and artists, but we are also encouraging others to post anything they would like or even album reviews,” said Mr. Mete, an acoustic guitarist. So far, about 120 artist profiles and hundreds of events at venues around York Region have been added to the site. “We are pretty excited,” Mr. Mete said. “Our primary goal is to create awareness about local artists and we have got to this level without any advertising and just by word of mouth.” In the future, the men hope to earn money with the website, but Mr. Mete said it will always be free for artists to use and post profiles.

or one Newmarket resident, playing music is more than a combination of riffs, chords and melodies. Chuck Ander, known as Freedom Chuck, is a regular performer at Books, Cafe and Things on Main Street. “A song is not just a song,” he said. “For many of us, a song is a memory or a feeling and hearing that song makes someone feel good. And that’s why I play.” Whether it’s a country, rock, blues or folk song you want to hear, this guitarist likely knows it. The musician taught himself to play guitar as a teenager more than 45 years ago and now has more than 1,000 songs in his repertoire.

For him, performing is about what the audience wants to hear. Some of the more popular requests include songs from The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. “When someone requests it, the song becomes new again,” he said. “Someone wants to hear it and their reaction is new.” He has been playing regularly at a local cafe for a couple of years and has learned the musical choices of some regulars. “As an artist, I’m able to do something for them,” he said. “In a small way, I enrich their lives in that moment.”

Mustangs’ Benn rises to new heights BY JOHN CUDMORE

Ward Benn simply keeps soaring higher. The Grade 12 student at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School in Aurora turned in a personal best vault of 3.9 metres Wednesday to capture the Central Region senior boys pole vault title in Oshawa. It is a performance that puts the 18-yearold Aurora resident into the conversation for a medal at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations track and field championships starting Thursday in Brockville. Benn outduelled Dean Heliotis of Barrie’s Innisdale Invaders, securing the victory with a successful second jump, while Heliotis missed all three of his attempts. In two previous meets, Heliotis got the upper hand on Benn. “I’ve improved a lot this year with more training and getting more jumps in,” said Benn, 18, who will attend York University to study business administration in the fall and likely turn to the decathlon. “I’ve been (vaulting) well in practice and it came together.” Despite setting a meet record at the York Region championships in mid-May at 3.53 metres, Benn knew there was room for improvement. “I wasn’t performing as well at that meet,” he conceded. “I didn’t have the best warmup and had just changed poles.” Although Benn missed out on the Central record at four metres, Mustangs track and field coach Sue Deighan thinks his best is yet to come. “I think by OFSAA, he’ll be over four metres,” predicted Deighan, who convinced the former power thrower to try pole vault in Grade 9. “It’s probably his passion and drive to improve. He’s more focused in the past two years.” Benn knows the areas he needs to polish prior to Saturday afternoon’s pole vault competition. He seems to be on the right track, judging by his recent performance. “I have to get inverted more and stay inverted,” he said. “I was coming off the pole early and losing potential for height. It’s hard to fix all at once.”

It will be Benn’s fourth OFSAA appearance. “Last year, I jumped 3.4 and came 16th,” he noted. “A medal would be awesome. Last year, 3.9 was second place at OFSAA.” Younger brother Ross won the midget boys pole vault title at 2.8 metres. As usual, it’ll be a busy couple of days for the Freemantle clan trackside in Brockville. Brothers Alex and Ben Freemantle made certain of that by claiming victories in the 800 metres in their respective age categories Wednesday at the Central Region championships. Alex captured the senior boys title in one minute, 57.25 seconds to qualify for his second event at the provincial championships. He also placed third in the 1,500 metres. Meanwhile, Ben claimed the midget boys title in 2:04 after a second-place showing Tuesday in the 1,500. Teammate Alec Pichelli also made noise, claiming second place in the midget boys 200 metres for his third qualifying berth at OFSAA. A day earlier, Pichelli won the 100 metres and was third in the 100 hurdles. Crusaders high jumper Aloysha Popov cleared 1.85 metres to win the junior boys high jump. The top four finishers in each event qualified for the OFSAA championships.

Cru girls OFSAA-bound The Sacred Heart Crusaders are the No. 11 seed for the OFSAA girls rugby 3-A/4-A championships, which kick off Monday in Ottawa.
