Cutting through red tape, business growth and traffic congestion are some of the main issues being cited by candidates running for council in the upcoming Ward 1 byelection, March 27. To date, Robin Smith, Silviu Bona, Spencer Phillips and Mike E. Waddington have registered to run for the vacant seat in the south Keswick riding after the appointment of Coun. Naomi Davison to regional council last November. "Decisions do require options, understanding and opinions, but once the research is done, I excel at pulling it together and moving forward," said Smith, who has taken a leave of absence from her position as chair of the Georgina Chamber of Commerce to run.

KIM ZARZOUR kzarzour@yrmg.com He was just an ordinary kid, a classmate at his son’s Markham high school, but the boy’s predicament troubled Sam Fronte. The teen had confided to Fronte that his father was angry he’d attended a local party and told him not to bother coming home. It was the middle of the night and the young man had nowhere to go. "He gets that way, sometimes," the boy shrugged.Fronte, who helped sponsor homeless youth through Markham Baptist Church for more than 10 years, was well aware of the risks the teen faced trying to find somewhere safe for the night - from frigid makeshift shelters to drop-ins where people are robbed for a few dollars. He couldn’t help the youth "a good kid" who luckily managed to find a friend’s couch to sleep on for the night - but Fronte vowed he would do more to help other teens in similar predicaments. That’s why his family has signed on to be a host family with the new Nightstop program being launched in York Region. 360Kids has partnered with UK-based Depaul Charity to be the first Nightstop provider in North America, offering screened and trained volunteers with a spare bed to young people with nowhere else to go. The organization is seeking families who can help provide this safety net - for one night or several - that keeps youth off the street or away from

Sam and Stephanie Fronte stand in the spare bedroom they are offering to homeless youth. It’s part of a new 360Kids program and a first in North America where volunteer families play host to young people who don’t have a place to stay. unsuitable accommodations where they would be at risk of abuse. With help of federal funding, families who sign up to be Nightstop hosts receive remuneration to assist with expenses. Nicola Harwood, head of Depaul’s Nightstop, was in Richmond Hill this week helping launch the program in Canada. It’s been in operation there for more than 30 years she says, and now offers 630 homes across the UK. In 2015, those homes provided 13,500 "safe sleeps" to young people. Each youth spends an average seven to eight nights at a Nightstop

while the agency works with them to find longterm solutions to their housing troubles. The program has been tried and tested by the UK organization to ensure it’s safe for everyone, she says, adding York Region would be a good fit for its launch in Canada. Jacquie Hermans, 360Kids Nightstop program coordinator, estimates 300 youth are seeking a place to stay in the region every night. 360Kids provides 14 emergency beds at The Hub in Richmond Hill, but there have been no vacancies since the facil-

team, he has helped raise cash donations, clothing and gift cards for homeless youth. Now he is ready to do more, especially in the south end of York Region where services are especially lacking. "The Hub is a great option but not nearly enough," he says. With no shelters for kids in crisis in the area, youth must make their way to Toronto or overcrowded shelters further north, in Newmarket or Sutton. "They can end up in places that are not safe. Shelters can be risky." Most of the hidden homeless are good kids in

ity opened in March 2016. "We are not going to build our way out of this problem," say Michael Braithwaite, 360Kids executive director. "We have to be innovative and think differently." The use of spare rooms in a positive environment makes a huge difference to young people in crisis, says Lesley Sims, 360Kids director of resource development. "It allows them to feel safe and cared for while receiving the continued support of services 360Kids provides." Fronte’s family is keen to play a role. As chair of his church’s mission

bad circumstances, says 360Kids youth worker Christian Salgado. With space shortages at the Richmond Hill facility, they end up couch-surfing, sleeping in abandoned buildings or tents in vacant lots, he says. "They get a bad rap, but they’re not dangerous. These kids generally just can’t go home." That’s the situation Jessica faced when she left home several months ago. At 17, the youth already faced years of hardship growing up with two chronically ill parents, moving multiple times and regularly bullied at school. "My parents couldn’t afford me so at the end of the day, I just decided to do it on my own," the quiet teen says. She slept in shelters and empty stairwells until she found an emergency bed at 360Kids. Now she is in transition housing while she earns her high school diploma, but she knows it could have gone very badly - and she says she could have used a program like Nightstop. "When you’re that age, you’re supposed to be growing. But that’s hard to do you are on the streets trying to survive. "It would make such a difference if we had a home where we knew we were safe and cared about."

isn’t opposed to contributing to the provincial government’s new cap-and-trade program, which increased gas prices by 4.3 cents a litre, as long as it is used specifically to improve the environment. "It (getting drivers to choose public transit) is not going to happen. No, I don’t think so. It won’t happen to me. No, no, no, no." Derocchis’s comments came the same day Queen’s Park announced Jan. 10 that York Region’s public transit system is getting a $15.3 million boost this year from the provincial gas tax. Better transit is not only a convenience for riders but helps improve the region’s economy, Newmarket-Aurora MPP Chris Ballard said at a press conference at the Newmarket Transit Garage on Yonge Street south of Green Lane in East Gwillimbury. Municipalities across Ontario have received $3.8 billion in gas tax funding since 2004, including $334 million this year. "York Region and York Region Transit will be able to use this funding to make critical improvements to our local transit network," Ballard said. "In the past, municipalities have used gas tax funding to upgrade transit infrastructure, increase accessibility, purchase transit vehicles, add more routes and extend hours

of service." Although the region’s transit improvement to-do list is long and the gas tax funding represents less than 1 per cent of this year’s $197,221 million transit operating budget, regional chair Wayne Emmerson stressed the funding is not drop in the bucket. "We appreciate every dollar we get from the province and the feds and we need more for us to enhance our transit system," he said. The funding will cover some of the costs of operating the YRT Viva Transit system, which is expanding. Current-

ly, the system provides about 140 transit routes served by 396 conventional buses and 123 Viva rapid transit buses, Emmerson said. The region is also phasing in new services such as dial-aride in rural areas and more frequent bus service, adopting new fare incentives, modernizing facilities and introducing technological advance-

ments, he added. Newmarket Mayor Tony Van Bynen and East Gwillimbury Mayor Virginia Hackson praised the gas tax funding. The money will help enhance and expand transit, reduce congestion, shorten commute times and help commuters reach their destinations quicker, Van Bynen said. Better transit is needed to

accommodate growth, Hackson said. The region’s population of 1.1 million will increase to 1.8 million by 2041, while East Gwillimbury will grow by 125,000 by 2051. "The more options our residents have to leave their car at home, the better it is for our communities and the environment," Hackson said.

Georgina- divorce is rarely easy and often means a lot of difficult decisions. One of the most important decisions is what to do about the house. In the midst of the heavy emotional and financial turmoil, what you need most is some non-emotional, straightforward, specific information and answers. Once you know how a divorce affects your home, your mortgage and taxes, critical decisions are easier. Neutral, third party information can help you make logical, rather than emotional, decisions. Probably the first decision is whether you want to continue living in the house. Will the familiar surroundings bring you comfort and emotional security; or unpleasant memories? Do you want to minimize change by staying where you are, or sell your home and move to a new place that offers a new start? Only you can answer those questions, but there will almost certainly be some financial repercussions to your decision

process. What can you afford? Can you manage the old house on your new budget? Is refinancing possible? Or is it better to sell and buy? How much house can buy on your new budget? To help you know what questions you should ask and how to arrive at the right answer for your specific situation, a FREE special report has been prepared by industry experts entitled “Divorce! What You Need to Know About Your House, Your Mortgage and Taxes”. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-888-244-7592 and enter 1009.

ABOUT US

• OUR VIEW •

As gracious hosts, let’s not disappoint Syrian families now For Syrian refugees who have come to Canada, 2016 was no doubt a year of adjustment and discovery. And for those who came in the first wave, a new reality is setting in with the start of a new year, when their federal living allowance came to an end. After 12 months, families stop receiving what could amount to $1,400 per month from the government. Many more refugees who settled in our communities will reach that milestone over the course of 2017. For those who have not secured employment, this year may bring some serious financial hardship. In a country that has openly embraced more than 35,500 Syrian refugees since November 2015, we can feel good about living in a place so willing to help those desperate and in need. Local groups, including Stouffville Cares, Bradford’s Refugee Inter-Denominational Group (BRIDG) and Georgina-East Gwillimbury Refugee Welcome, sponsored families. And many more residents, businesses, community organizations and churches offered their support to those families and other refugees who have begun to make their home in our towns and cities. The North American Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim Community Organization (NASIMCO) and the Jaffari Community Centre (JCC), for example, have organized and delivered hygiene kits to families awaiting permanent housing, prepared backpacks for 300 children going to school, delivered donated household items to families upon settlement and hosted a free dental screening and informative workshop session These people’s journey settling in our communities needs to stay front and centre for more than just the exciting first few months - particularly as that financial assistance reaches its expiration date. It has been inspiring to witness our communities step up to support and welcome their new neighbours and hear how refugees are adapting to living in a new country. We need to continue to offer support in various ways. Learning English is a major barrier for many. Perhaps people could offer English conversation clubs in their neighbourhood. Syrian children in new schools no doubt face an intimidating integration into their peers’ social circles. How can we help them make new friends? Many of the new families have spoken of the wonder and appreciation they felt being accepted so readily into this country. As time presses on, let’s not disappoint them now.

Metroland

OWL publisher and founder of Ladies of Lake and Ontario Water Centre Annabel Slaight, who lives in Roches Point, was named to the Order of Canada

Georgina resident Annabel Slaight has received one of the highest civilian honours in the country. The publishing powerhouse behind the OWL multimedia empire and supreme "Lady of the Lake" championing Lake Simcoe was among 100 Canadians named to the Order of Canada Dec. 30. "It was quite a surprise, actually, because someone in the community nominated me years ago so, I guess, it took them a long time to decide," a thrilled Slaight says with characteristic modesty and humour. Recognized for nurturing a passion for science and nature among generations of Canadian children,

ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?

Slaight’s most recent project involves the Ontario Water Centre’s ClearWater Farm initiative on Lake Drive in Willow Beach. "I get a kick out of seeing what kids can do," the selfdescribed ’little old classroom teacher’ succinctly describes decades of publishing, teaching and environmental work that has engaged children to not only explore, but also change their environment for the better. "They are the environmzzental leaders of the future," the woman who used to run a circus in her Toronto backyard as a child to raise money for the Star Fresh Air Fund says. "I guess I was born to do this kind of stuff," she laughs, recalling her first "newspaper," the heat street

Despite the fact she has earned one of the most distinguished honours in the nation, along with the likes of renowned novelist Michael Ondaatje, Former Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and McGill University astrophysicist Victoria Kaspi, Slaight accepts the latest accolade on behalf of the numerous people she has worked with over the years.

wonderful people full of integrity, passion and heart; people doing the things they do because their hearts are in it. I’m no Steve Jobs for goodness sakes," she laughs Slaight also credits her father as her inspiration. "He always listened and tried to open doors for me." Having already received the Order of Ontario, Canadian Film and Television’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the Royal Canadian Institute’s Sir Sanford Fleming Award for promoting science education, and the Ontario Lieutenant Governor’s Environmental Heritage Award, Slaight will accept her Order of Canada insignia at a ceremony scheduled for later in the year. Moving forward, Slaight says she would be quite happy to have the next big thing be making the dream of ClearWater Farm transforming people’s lives a reality. Since acquiring the lease for the property in August of 2015, more than $2.5M in pledges, commitment and support has been raised. A $100,000 grant from RBC and $750,000 from Trillium will develop young agriprenuer and placebased programming on the farm. "You think receiving the Order of Canada was a thrill, that Trillium grant is pretty darn good, too," Slaight laughs. Slaight will also present the ideas raised by local youth for the future of the historic barn on the property to town council Jan. 18.

| Georgina Advocate | Thursday, January 12, 2017

In 2016 I was pleased to celebrate 25 years in the Real Estate business in Georgina. A lot happened in those 25 years including my son, Daniel, joining the family business. Over the years I have been thanked over and over again by my clients, local businesses, organizations and members of the Community. As part of my celebration one of the ways I chose to give back to our great community was to donate $250 to each of the 25 incredible organizations below. They are an integral part of the fabric that makes Georgina one of the best and perhaps the greatest Community in which to live, work and play! To show my appreciation Georgina I have set aside an additional $100 for each of the 25 years that I have had the pleasure of serving this community… That is $2,500 and I need YOUR help to select who will receive it.

THE QUEEN’S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE Since 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has been giving a “Christmas Broadcast”. In everyone of her broadcasts to the British Commonwealth and Empire, she has emphasized her constant sense of duty and her devotion to God, speaking humbly and openly of this. In her 2002 broadcast, the Queen said: “I know just how much I rely on my faith to guide me through the good times and the bad. Each day is a new beginning. I know that the only way to live my life is to try to do what is right, to give of my best in all that the day brings, and to put my trust in God...I draw strength from the message of hope in the Christian gospel.” The same theme was re-iterated in 2008: “I hope that, like me, you will be comforted by the example of Jesus of Nazareth who, often in circumstances of great adversity, managed to live an outgoing, unselfish and sacrificial life...We can be surely grateful that, two thousand years after the birth of Jesus, so many of us are able to draw inspiration from his life and message, and to find in him a source of strength and courage.” In this year’s Christmas Message, again the Queen emphasized the importance of gaining inspiration from the life of Jesus Christ. She spoke of how she uses the life of Jesus as her guiding light and that love begins small but always grows. As the New Year – 2017 – commences, we likewise, have an excellent opportunity to reflect upon the message of the Bible, to gain inspiration and guidance from God’s Word as we carry out our daily activities.
