SIMON MARTIN The fastest growing municipality in York Region the last five years isn’t who you would expect. While Markham and Vaughan continue to grow like wildfire, King Township experienced the largest growth percentage wise between 2011 to 2016. According to national census data which was recently released, King grew from a population of 19,899 in 2011 to 24,512 in 2016. That represented a population increase of 23.2 per cent. "While growth has occurred, it’s important to keep the numbers in the proper context," Mayor Steve Pellegrini said. "King’s population projections top out at just under 35,000 by 2021." While municipalities like East Gwillimbury have massive popul See GROWTH page 4

Guidelines should protect sex workers, Onyx Ronin says

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

JEREMY GRIMALDI Onyx Ronin lives in the shadows when she’s at work. She and countless women like her occupy the grey areas of law, somewhere between legitimacy and criminality. Society at large might prefer to forget her profession exists, rather than admit it’s not only real, but a flourishing industry. She’s a "body rubber," as defined by the laws that govern her career. She has never been arrested and says she sees police "maybe once a year." People might think Ronin, her working name, and her peers destroy families and corrupt men. But she sees her job in a different light and believes you should, too. "I feel that I relieve a lot of road rage," she said during a recent interview. "People are stressed in this world; when they’re on the table, they are happy and relaxed. When I’m touching someone, I feel relaxed and comfortable and I’m sharing an experience with someone. "It’s about selling intimacy, the human touch, to feel connected to someone else." The 28-year-old employee of the female-owned MUSE Spa, which has locations in Vaughan and Toronto, is open about her work. She says "there’s nothing wrong with having sex for money," although that’s not what she does.

Mike Barrett/Metroland

Onyx Ronin is a body rubber (masseuse). She is standing up for the profession and saying the laws should be changed to better protect the women involved. "People do all sorts of things for money," she says. "I don’t understand why we are so stuck on this idea that sexuality can’t be commodified in this one particular way when people accept it being commodified in so many other ways." At the spa, she gives "full body erotic massages" largely to men aged 40 to 50. She says MUSE targets men at a higher price point, suggesting her clients are rarely, if ever, intoxicated, and very "respectful." But she says she can’t speak

for a "door fee" and $80 of which goes to the attendant. Ronin decided to share her story and opinions after MUSE’s Vaughan location was robbed on Dec. 28, 2016. At the time, York Regional Police Det. Sgt. Dave Noseworthy said many massage parlours don’t report robberies because neither employers nor employees want publicity. That, says Ronin, shows the law, in its current form, doesn’t properly protect workers in the sex trade. "I would like to see law-

makers looking through the lens that there’s nothing morally wrong with providing sexual services for money," she said. "I would like them to ask, ’How can we help people work without shame and afford them the same rights that everyone else is protected by law?’" The current law, a complicated set of guidelines, criminalizes the buying of sex and the advertising of "sexual services", York police Det. Sgt. Thai Truong explained. Ian McLeod, a spokes-

person for the Department of Justice, says any person who purchases sexual services, including manual masturbation, in any place, including a massage parlour, commits an offence. McLeod added that the Minister of Justice has committed to monitoring the impacts of Bill C-36, which regulates prostitution. Ronin, like others in her trade, needs a municipality-issued licence that has her name, photograph and home address to work as a "body rubber." She must also pass a communicable disease test.She suggests the federal government needs to draft new measures to ensure women and girls are not being forced into the profession and exploited. She envisions a society where all sex workers are in constant contact with the authorities, which would improve the chances of helping those that don’t want to be there. "It should be legal and protected, just like every other job," she said. Ronin says her job doesn’t suit everyone and businesses see a high turnover, but she insists that her experience has been positive. "As much as this job is not for everyone, it is for me," she said. "I’m a normal person, I am a happy person. I am choosing to do this."

generally about her profession: "As for other girls, I don’t know." Ronin studied classical music at the University of Toronto, before studying sex work as part of her master’s degree at York University. After graduation, she worked retail jobs. She entered the industry at 25 and immediately saw an extraordinary jump in pay, she says, explaining she now makes between $80 and $300 an hour. According to MUSE’s website, 30 minutes with an attendant costs $120, $40

Growth driven by pent up demand l Continued from page 1

lation targets set for 2031, upwards of 75,000 people, Pellegrini said King’s population target will remain steady at 35,000. According to King’s director of planning, Stephen Kitchen, the main drivers of the growth over the last five years was the pent up demand due to formerly unavailable servicing in King City and Nobleton. King’s population

growth has been relatively small if you look at a longer period of time. According to the 1996 census, the population was 18,223 which mean’s the township has added roughly 6,000 new people over 20-year span. Pellegrini said the township has the benefit of having large swath of its lands being in the Greenbelt and the Oak Ridges Moraine. "That’s not going to change," he said. "Ninety-nine per cent of the land

is Greenbelt and Oak Ridges Moraine." The development people are seeing in King City, Nobleton and Schomberg has long been part of the township’s official plan, Pellegrini said. The township is now embarking on the new official plan, but Pellegrini said the population numbers look to be reasonable for the future. "We’re looking at just over 700 more people per

year for the next 14 years, which is manageable," he said. According to the census, the fastest growing municipality in Ontario was Milton which saw its population balloon from 84,362 to 110,128 which represented a 30.5 per cent increase. King was the 15th-fastest growing municipality in Canada. The only other York Region municipality to finish in the Top 30 was Whitchurch-Stouffville at 19.

Foot Health Sarah Chan

I have painful thick skin on the pressure areas of my feet, what can I do?

Veterinary Dr. Barb Winslow My dog’s breath could knock you out. Why is Doggy Breath so bad?

SARAH CHAN, chiropodist/foot specialist

Unless they have just been eating something stinky (like the dogs who think the kitty litter is a candy dish), then stinky dog breath is most likely going to be because of DENTAL DISEASE. What you are smelling is not so much Dog Breath, as Bacteria Breath. People tend to think of this as just a cosmetic problem (“Ha ha, no kisses from you, please, stinkyface!”) – but it is a significant problem. Teeth like the ones pictured here: • Cause significant pain… yes, even if your dog does not actually whine or cry. • Are sources of bacteria to seed into the body, causing problems for the valves of the heart, and for “filter” organs like the liver and kidneys. Proper dental cleaning requires anaesthetic: • For pain control – teeth like these HURT. Pets need to be “out” for us to clean down in the gum pockets, and in case bad teeth need to be removed. • For access – pets are not going to “Say Ah” and let you in to their back teeth, or the side of their teeth facing the tongue. • For protection – the tube that goes down their airway to deliver the anaesthetic also serves to keep all the mess from cleaning the mouth OUT of the lungs.

Some of the most common thick skin lesions are calluses and corns. Calluses and corns form to protect the structures under the skin from pressure, friction and injury. They become a problem when they grow large or deep enough to be painful. Common causes of calluses and corns on the feet are ill-fitting shoes, abnormal foot structure and abnormal gait. It is best to seek a chiropodist to safely treat and prevent the calluses and corns.

The driver of this Mazda minivan was killed in a two-vehicle collision on King Road, between Bathurst and Dufferin streets.

Man killed in T-bone collision on King Road LISA QUEEN A man has been killed in an early-morning two-vehicle collision in King Township, York Regional Police Insp. Dave Riches said. King Road between Bathurst and Dufferin streets will be closed for the morning rush hour while the major collision unit investigates the fatal collision that happened Feb. 13 at 3:40 a.m., he said. "We don’t know for sure (what happened), but it was a two-vehicle collision," Riches said. "One of the drivers of the vehicles has deceased. We’re looking for witnesses that may have information. "It appears one of the vehicles lost control and was hit like a T-impact." The driver of a Mazda minivan that was T-boned,

a Richmond Hill man born in 1969, was killed The driver of a Dodge Ram pickup truck, a Richmond Hill man born in 1968, was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The Mazda was travelling east and crossed the centre line and the Ram was travelling west, Det.Const. Mike McKeraghan said. The Mazda’s driver was on his way home from work, McKeraghan said, while the Ram’s driver was heading to work. There was nobody else in the vehicles, Riches said. Investigators are looking at whether snowy road conditions played a role in the collision, Riches said. Witnesses are asked to call police at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 2043. - with files from Jeremy Grimaldi

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

144 rails and train related accidents last year alone and that we will soon have another 30,000 new homes added to our area within 10 years, I find it disturbing that no one has given any thought to redirecting these trains to less populated areas. After looking at Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie’s website, I found that she and her local cohorts are proposing to divert rail freight traffic through Markham, Vaughan and Pickering so that they can have all-day, two-way GO Train service. This leaves Markham and Vaughan with increased volumes of freight

trains, including those carrying explosive, toxic and dangerous freight through one of the densest and fastest growing population centres in the GTA. These trains would be in addition to the dozens of freight trains, including those carrying dangerous materials, that already pass through our neighbourhoods on a daily basis. Toronto residents have called on their provincial and federal elected representatives to remove dangerous goods traveling via rail through their local Toronto neighbourhoods. Why aren’t we?

Education Minister Liz Sandals walks with Newmarket-Aurora MPP Chris Ballard (right) and York Catholic District School Board executives.

Free tuition for students through new OSAP AMANDA PERSICO More than 200,000 students will be eligible for free tuition under new OSAP regulations. Recently, the province announced changes to its student assistance program that will help remove financial barriers to college and university. MPP Liz Sandals and Newmarket-Aurora MPP Chris Ballard were on hand at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School in Aurora to announce the new program structure. Through program enhancements, the province is making tuition free for more than 210,000 Ontario students. Expanding access to college and university is part of our government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives. "We’re moving forward

with the most ambitious reform of student financial assistance in North America because our government believes that a person’s ability to access postsecondary education should be based on their ability to learn, and not on their ability to pay," said Deb Matthews, advanced education and skills development minister. Under the new program, OSAP grants and loans will make the average tuition free for students whose parents make less than $50,000 a year. The program also provides more and larger grants and loans for students from families that earn more. Qualifying full time and part time students can receive up to $13,260. There are also new opportunities for mature, married or parent students who are looking to return to school.

The province has introduced an OSAP calculator tool, where in just a few clicks, students can see whether they qualify for free tuition and how much aid they could expect to receive under the new program. There is also a repayment calculator to help budget payments once a student leaves school, following a six-month repayment grace period. Those applying to school in September will be the first class of students to benefit from the new OSAP program. The province is working with colleges and universities to clarify the difference between the sticker tuition process and the actual amount required to pay. The application process for the 2017 to 2018 school year opens in the spring. For more information, visit

Future of seniors care ’keeps me up at night,’ CEO says LISA QUEEN

improved," Chartier said. "Further, there are too many seniors with dementia and other cognitive needs who do not have access to the necessary specialized resources in their homes to support them. We need to change this." If no long-term beds are added, it will "definitely" impact health care services, Chartier said. Chartwell Aurora has two longterm care homes side-by-side on Mill Street southwest of Yonge and Wellington streets, including a much newer building beside the home Chartier visited. While residents are well cared for in both homes, there is clearly a difference in the amenities of the buildings, administrator Greg Boudreau said. "This (seniors’ care issue) is a huge deal," he said, adding new homes provide residents with more privacy and better dining and recreational facilities. "The residents have lived their entire lives helping Canada grow. At the time they are at their most frail and vulnerable, they (should be) able to live their days in the most respectful environment possible." Also, homes need staff better trained to deal with residents with more complex needs, he said. "When we’re more proactive rather than reactive, we’re able to help the residents, which also helps the other residents that are in their environment, so it just makes it better for everybody," he said.

Steve Somerville/Metroland

Candace Chartier, chief executive officer of the Ontario Long Term Care Association made an announcement related to seniors’ care and the needs of seniors living in long-term care in the province.

Steve Somerville/Metroland

Trinity Di Simone of Richmond Hill and Olivia Railton of Aurora were recently accepted by Oxford University to study psychology and law.

Country Day School students to study at Oxford AMANDA PERSICO On average, one of the world’s leading universities, Oxford University, only accepts 10 Canadians each year. This year, two of those students were from Country Day School (CDS) in King Township. Grade 12 students Trinity De Simone and Olivia Railton are headed to England in the fall to study. For Aurora resident Railton, Oxford has been a dream since attending a debating tournament at Queen’s University in Grade 9. Another debating student had recently been accepted. "I was immediately intrigued," Railton said. With plenty of research and making more Oxford connections, including her current debate coach who is an Oxford alumni, applying to Oxford became more and more of a reality. Now, she has her sights set on the Oxford Union, one of the world’s most famous debating societies. Railton recently competed at the national debating championship in Winnipeg, with the hope of competing at the world for the third time. For Richmond Hill resi-

dent De Simone, she came to know and love Oxford from a young age during a trip to England. "I fell in love with the country," she said. "That’s when I decided I was going to live there when I was older."But it wasn’t until she was halfway through her high school career did she consider Oxford an option. De Simone didn’t return to England until her Oxford University acceptance interview in December. "At that point, it was just a memory," she said. "But I needed to know if the school was for me or just 6th grade me. I still felt at home there." Both CDS students received acceptance letters at the beginning of January via email. "I was in a daze for a few days," De Simone said. "It reframed my vision of the future." Railton thought she misread the letter. "I just kept reading and re-reading it," she said. "I was sure I was missing a ’no’ somewhere." While the initial shock has worn off, both students have to try keep their focus to ensure their grades are up to par. "My plan, is to go through the rest of the year as if I didn’t find out," De Simone said.

As he looks around the common room at the very frail seniors asleep in their wheelchairs, Brian English says the health of residents in his nursing home has declined dramatically since he moved in seven years ago. "My memory tells me that when I came in here first, this whole floor (of residents) was mobile and, for the most part, cognitive. That has changed drastically," said the 66year-old, who remains agile and mentally alert despite having a stroke that resulted in him moving into Chartwell Aurora Long Term Care Residence, built in the 1970s. "I can’t say there’s a big discrepancy in the age (between when I moved in and now) but certainly in terms of the mental and physical health, it’s huge. You look around and you see the number of wheelchairs."English remembers when there were only a handful of residents in wheelchairs, which meant there was enough space for recreational activities. "Plus, there are so many (residents) with varying degrees of dementia, there are constant interruptions," he added. "They (staff) have to spend so much of their time to provide order or restore order before they can continue the program." English is in a room with three other men, one of whom he said has many health concerns and occupies the washroom for several hours a day. Candace Chartier, CEO of the Ontario Long-Term Care Association, was at Chartwell Feb. 9 to highlight concerns with seniors’ care. That includes worries the province’s long-term care homes are unable to meet the needs of a rapidly aging population and doubts about Ontario’s ability to care for the dramatic increase in the number of elderly residents with complex needs. "It’s what keeps me up at night," Chartier said, adding there are not enough long-term care homes in the province and many of the existing ones are outdated. "It scares me that we’re not going to be prepared for the seniors coming down the pipeline. We’re not prepared now." There are many challenges facing seniors in York Region, Chartier said. There are now more than 72,500 residents over the age of 75, which is

expected to grow by 76.7 per cent in the next decade and by 183 per cent in the next two decades. On average, York Region will see an increase of 18 seniors a day until 2027, Chartier said. Almost a third of York’s long-term care homes need to be modernized, meaning more than 630 seniors in the region are living in outdated facilities, she said. The problems extend beyond York’s borders. About 97 per cent of seniors in long-term care in Ontario suffer from two or more chronic diseases, 97 per cent require assistance with daily activities and 90 per cent have some form of cognitive impairment. There are 23,000 people on the waiting list for a long-term care bed. About 40 per cent of people in hospitals are patients waiting for long-term care. "The challenges are broad and significant and we believe that something must be done today because tomorrow doesn’t look so rosy," Chartier said. The association is lobbying the provincial government to make seniors’ care a priority in this year’s budget and is also urging people to go on the website and sign a petition demanding better care for the elderly. "Today, almost half of Ontario’s long-term care homes are in need of renewal. There are 35,000 licences set to expire in 2025 and we need to ensure the government comes forward with the necessary tools to see them
