'Midsummer Night' and it's the longest day of the Featured this LB. year, and in Finland, the sun stays up all night long. As week at... a matter of fact, it doesn't get dark at all, all summer long. Anybody and everybody leaves the cities and goes to the cottage to celebrate 'Juhannus', and there are a lot of cottages because there are a lot of lakes — 185,000, to be exact. "We celebrate with enormous bonfires by the lake (or sea) — and it's an amazing sight to see hundreds of bonfires burning around the lake. Other traditions are saunas, swimming, BBQing sausages, going dancing at outdoor venues, doing love spells to see who you will marry, and imbibing excessively." So here goes...

From what I have discovered, Finns like treats — a lot of them! We've arrangd a selection of three to feature this week: Firstly, we'll have Licorice, or Lakritsi, as it's called. Although there is a seemingly endless variety of types, both hard and soft, we'll be featuring Panda soft and chewy licorice in either the traditional molasses, raspberry or an outside the box, blueberry flavour. They all come in boxes — 200g size to be exact. % OFF Reg. $3.79 ea, featured at... Next, we'll have chocolate, too. The brand is 'Marabou' and there will be three types. The sample that I inhaled was the Milk, always a good sampling reference point, but Jaana insists that the bars with Hazelnuts are the best, and we'll also have 'Dark Chocolate' bars, too! When I noted that they are made in Sweden, the reply was that 'All Finns love them'! They come in a 200g bar, so you'll be able to share if EA. you need to. Featured at... And, most people might not think of this as a treat but a staple, Finn Crisps! These have been made since 1952 and served at the summer Olympics in Helsinki. Varieties are Multigrain, Original and Caraway. % Reg. $3.29. OFF Featured this week at...

LAKKAHILLO (CLOUDBERRY JAM)

This is what Finns like the most, Vodka included! It's a unique specialty, and I find it a bit of a stretch price-wise — but we'll feature it this week at our cost, which is approximately $12.95 per jar. 410g

BAKING WHAT’S —THIS WEEK—

Thinking Finnish, we'll be making... SUMMER SOLSTICE STARS (LUUMUTORTTU) These are puff pastry pinwheels brushed with brandy, with a dried plum filling. This is traditionally a Christmas pastry, but the Finns generally look for occasions to eat...$2.99 each. CLOUDBERRY DANISH Our divine danish dough made with butter, filled with cream cheese filling and cloudberry preserve. Cloudberries are a delicacy in Finland; people go crazy for them! They look like an orange raspberry and grow only in Lapland (northern Finland) $2.99 each. JELLY ROLLS (KÄÄRETORTTU) These are made everyday in our bakery and are crazy popular. I've told their story many times in the past, and we sell a Canadianized version with the mixed fruit. In Finland the filling is either apple preserve or strawberry jam. There will be different types available; firstly, our usual one with the mixed fruit, a version with local strawberries and whipped cream and a third called 'Unelmatorttu' which is chocolate sponge filled with a vanilla butter cream filling. Whichever you like, $12.95 each. RHUBARB SQUARES (RAPARPERIPIIRAKKA) In Finland they don't make the traditional fruit pie as we know it, but more like a flat cake with fruit bakedin. These are in 8"x5" foils, with some added almond cream to spice things up. $7.99 each. TOSCACAKES (TOSKAKAKKU) These are also made in 8" by 5" foils. It's a beautiful dense moist white cake topped with caramelized almonds halfway through the baking process, then baked further to 'crisp golden goodness'. $7.95 each. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE This is Jaana's moms specialty, and she has been making this ever since the beginning of time, but only for birthdays and special occasions. (Unfortunately we don't have those little wild strawberries here like they have back in Finland, but they are the ones to use traditionally). We use white cake and whipping cream of course, and we brush the cake with freshlysqueezed orange juice and apricot brandy, and fill it with sliced strawberries and sliced bananas. And, if you don't eat it all on day one, it's even better and more moist the next day. Serves 6-8 $14.95 each.

LIHAPULLT

And, I quote, "Our meatballs are 100% better than the Canadian ones. They are little, pan-fried in butter, and spiced only with onions, allspice (the most important thing), salt and pepper. They are served in brown gravy with either mashed potatoes or little boiled new potatoes, with some These are not Finnish, but this is the time of the year lingonberries on the side, or by themselves cold with tube mustard and shots of vodka from the that they are in season, so enjoy them. In my opinion, freezer." We will have these available to go for dinner (or the vodka treatment) and warm at the these are the very best nectarines you can get.$ for lunch on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Just for the record, we will also have a feature 99LB. Café Large size, from California on the mini new potatoes in the produce section, if you want to go it on your own.

Stop legislating common sense

Premier Dad might be called upon, once again, to legislate us to be safe. Dalton McGuinty and the Liberals have already passed laws to ensure adults don’t smoke on patios or in vehicles with children, and that everyone younger than 18 wears a helmet while riding a bicycle. Now, adult cyclists may be the next target in his cross-hairs. A review of all accidental cycling deaths in the province between 2006 and 2010, recommended bike helmets be required for cyclists of all ages. The belief is a law that covers everyone would address the fact only 27 per cent of cyclists who died from collisions were wearing helmets. Putting helmets on everyone will save lives, according to the report, which was led by deputy chief coroner Dr. Dan Cass. It’s hard to argue against that, but not everyone agrees it’s the right thing to do. In fact, Dr. Cass’ panel members could not agree on whether or not legislation was the best way to promote cycling safety and many of the people who would appear to gain the most from the possible legislation are against it. Cycling groups across the province argue education, not legislation, is the answer. Mandatory helmet use will not reduce the number of cycling injuries and,

instead, will only reinforce the incorrect belief that wearing a helmet is the only way to avoid injury. And who’s going to enforce this kind of legislation? Our police officers have more important duties than issuing tickets to helmet-less cyclists. Some believe helmet laws scare potential cyclists away, according to Markham cycling and pedestrian advisory committee vice-chairperson Peter Miasek. Some European jurisdictions encourage higher ridership without attaching mandatory helmet use, he added. While Mr. Miasek does not wear a helmet, he tries to keep to trails and residential streets. If he has to ride arterial roads, he rides the sidewalks. He believes he can manage the risk, he said. Dr. Cass also recommends an approach at the municipal level that would emphasize the creation of bike paths and bike lanes separated from roads. The inclusion of cycling and road safety education in schools and a Transportation Ministry-led campaign on cycling safety were also part of the report. But the focus seems to be on trying to legislate common sense. Instead of a law designed to protect us from ourselves, it makes more sense to look at the coroner’s suggestions for reducing cycling accidents.

What is news? Inquiring minds need to know

I

had the honour of speaking at career day last week at a public school in Thornhill. It’s one of those fun things community newspaper editors are invited to do, right up there with judging the Santa Claus parade or moderating the all-candidates night. (Control your excitement.) How I ranked up there with my fellow presenters — a politician, doctor, lawyer, chef and computer-assisted animator for big budget sci-fi/ adventure films, among others — is a mystery to me, although like the show What Not to Wear, perhaps they brought in someone they thought could have done better with his life, considering his many talents. “Children, pay attention. There’s a life lesson to be learned here,” the looks on the teachers’ faces seemed to say as I walked to the front of the class. (I am just kidding.) I did my best to give the kids some idea of what a community newspaper editor’s job is like and what they might expect if they were to choose a career in local news. In that you spend a lot of time in front of a computer or on the phone and do a lot of reading and working on your computer. Covering wars or natural disasters or being interviewed yourself about

Bernie O’Neill the incredible story you broke is much less common and besides, you need to get home on time to have dinner with the kids. I must say the students were very welcoming and asked a lot of great questions, on top of the questions they were compelled to ask to complete the booklet that went with career day, such as how much schooling is required and how much I make. I was also able to give them a little lesson about what news is and how we collect it, harvest it, hunt it down, dig it up or whatever we have to do to get our hands on it (which was one of the common supplementary questions: where does the news come from or

how to you get it?) News, I told them, is essentially stories about people, places and things. But mostly people. So what stories about people do other people want to hear? It boils down to a few basic criteria. Timeliness: Is it something that just happened? Or is about to happen? That’s news. Did it happen two months ago, two years ago? Not so much. Proximity: Did it happen in Markham, the Chicago suburb (I keep getting Google alerts about Markham, Illinois) or did it happen in Markham, Ont.? If you are talking about Markham the town that wants to be a city (above the city that sometimes thinks it’s a country), then that’s news to the people around here. If it happened in suburban Chicago, it’s not really news, at least not to us, unless it was something really big. Which brings us to... Audience: Who are they? Homeowners with two cars, two kids, two cats who live in a certain area? Certain stories will interest them that might not interest others. Impact: Will what you are about to tell people change the community in which they live? Cost them a lot of money? Alter the environment of the planet they are inhabiting? Then this is

a story people tend to want to hear. Conflict: Where there is struggle, violence, crime, war or even a simple difference of opinion, there are stories that tend to get read or listened to. The traffic jam near the accident often isn’t about lanes being blocked, it’s about people slowing down to take a look. Novelty: You might call it, “Man bites dog.” If you are talking about something that happened that rarely happens, something unique, novel, not an everyday occurence, you have news. Celebrity: For whatever reason, we are interested in what the popular, beautiful, rich, powerful and talented people are up to. It’s in our nature. Through Internet and news websites and tracking of what gets read and looked at and what doesn’t — which also determines where advertisers advertise — more than ever, news organizations are focused on giving people what they want rather than trying to tell them what they should be interested in. Which will be the challenge for these young people 10 years from now when they head out into a changing work world that probably won’t look the same as it does today, especially when it comes to media. (Although what I heard in hallways at the end of career day was a lot of kids talking about becoming lawyers. Like I said, smart kids.)

Mayor, delegation off to China By L.H. Tiffany Hsieh

thsieh@yrmg.com

Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti will travel to China for the Greater Toronto Chinese Business Association Trade Mission Nov. 21 to Dec. 5. Markham was invited by the Confederation of Greater Toronto Chinese Business Associations to participate in the mission, which aims to further strengthen and promote economic, business and cultural ties between key cities in China and the GTA. The five-member Markham delegation, to be led by Mr. Scarpitti, will include companies and institutions in the high-tech, real estate, medical and health care and financial

services sectors. The delegation will travel to Qingdao, Shanghai, Beijing, Wuhan, Huadu and Shenzhen. Markham’s previous mission to China was in 2008, followed by various business visits by individual staff and elected officials, including Regional Councillor Gord Landon who visited several Chinese markets earlier this year. Town staff is recommending that the mayor, Mr. Landon and the economic development director return to Qingdao to further pursue business development opportunities. The total costs of the mission is estimated at $53,000.

Sweet sounds. Sunny skies. Smiling faces. Congratulations to the Markham Village Music Festival committee and volunteers for another amazing event. I’m proud to be part of this great festival!

PROPOSED UPGRADE OF THE NATURAL GAS DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IN THE GTA The Study and Preferred Route Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. (Enbridge) has retained Dillon Consulting Limited (Dillon) to undertake an environmental assessment and route selection study for two currently proposed 36-inch (915 mm) high pressure natural gas distribution pipelines and associated facilities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). This project is being proposed to upgrade the backbone of Enbridge’s natural gas distribution system to serve growth in the GTA. The project has been divided into two proposed segments for which environmental, socio-economic, and technical data has been collected. A thorough investigation of route options for Segment A and Segment B was completed, including consideration of all input received during consultation with elected officials, agencies, stakeholders, First Nations and Métis, and the public. As a result of the work done to date, a Preferred Route (PR) has been selected for each segment. The PR for Segment A is an existing provincially designated utility corridor within the Parkway Belt, located south of Highway 407. For Segment B, the PR is a combination of the Parkway Belt as well as an existing utility corridor running north-south between Highway 407 and Sheppard Avenue East. It was determined that the PR for both segments involves the least potential for conflict with existing and proposed land uses and other utilities, minimal disruption to traffic, and minimal disruption to communities and businesses during construction.

The Process

The project is being conducted in accordance with the Ontario Energy Board’s Environmental Guidelines for the Location, Construction, and Operation of Hydrocarbon Pipelines and Facilities in Ontario, 6th Ed., 2011. The proposed work will also meet the requirements of the Ministry of Infrastructure (MOI) Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Process for Realty Activities Other Than Electricity Projects, as amended September 2008. Once the study is

complete, Enbridge may apply to the Ontario Energy Board for approval to construct the project. If approved, construction is proposed for 2014 and 2015.

Invitation to Participate and Comment Public and agency consultation is a key component of this project. Enbridge is hosting a second round of Open Houses to provide you with an opportunity to review the project and provide input. Drop in to one of our Open Houses between 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - City of Mississauga Radisson Plaza Mississauga Toronto Airport, Dorothy Room, 175 Derry Rd. E., Mississauga Wednesday, June 27, 2012 – Town of Markham St. Robert Catholic High School Cafeteria, 8101 Leslie St.,Thornhill

Construction planning and mitigation will be discussed at the Open Houses. Enbridge recognizes that there are potential construction impacts and is committed to discussing these concerns with the community. The Open Houses will also provide information on the schedule for completion of the environmental assessment and further opportunities for stakeholder engagement prior to and during construction.

Gallery turns gala into accessible party Attend Friday’s Crystallized event for $25 By L.H. Tiffany Hsieh

thsieh@yrmg.com

A $150-per-ticket fundraising gala for the Varley Art Gallery of Markham has been turned into a party. No longer a fundraising event for the Varley-McKay Art Foundation, organizers behind Friday’s Crystallized: the Varley Gala dropped the ticket price to $25 in an effort to be more accessible. “We want to make sure everybody can attend,” said John Ryerson, Markham’s director of culture. “So we thought it’s better to go with a cheaper, more accessible price.” Crystallized, which will celebrate the gallery’s 15th anniversary, along with the official unveiling of the new exhibition space, was also turned into a party on account of the gallery’s recent fine art auction that raised more than $71,000 for the Varley-McKay foundation, Mr. Ryerson said. “We just finished with the auction ... the real purpose (on Friday) is to celebrate the gala,” he said. Local Councillor Don Hamilton said he hopes the reduced ticket price will draw more residents. He said while the gallery had a deficit of about $600,000 in 2011 (Markham Museum had a deficit of $690,000 and the Flato Markham Theatre $575,000), “That’s the price we have to pay for culture. Culture moves society forward.” As for the $2.5-million expansion of the Varley gallery, it has been in the works two years. It was a long process, Varley’s curator Anik Glaude said. The new gallery space of 1,500 square feet on the main floor means increased space and opportunities for larger exhibitions, she said. With another 1,500 sq-ft of office space now located directly above the new gallery space, existing offices will be converted to a studio for community and programming use. Renovation in the front hall will begin in the fall. To launch the new gallery space dedicated to the Varley’s permanent

Upcoming at Varley In 2012-2013, the Varley will be presenting a series of three historical exhibitions, allowing visitors to follow the evolution of Canadian art chronologically through the course of the 20th century. Oct. 28 to Jan. 20: Impressionism? Selected Works from the Collection of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec Feb. 2 to May 5: Canada on Canvas May 25 to Sept. 2: Structures/Rhythms/ Colours: The Plasticiens and Beyond, Montreal, 1955-1970

Local artist Xianjing Yan. collection, artworks from Wallace Joyce’s collection will be showcased in Collections in Context: The Wallace Joyce Gift. Mr. Joyce, who died in 2010 at age 95, donated $1.4 million to the Varley-McKay foundation in 2008 for the expansion project.

On the web Check out a video by Sjoerd Witteveen interviewing Varley Gallery curator Anik Glaude. To see the video, go to yorkregion.com and click on videos.

Works Ms Glaude has selected from Mr. Joyce’s collection for the exhibition include those from celebrated Canadian artists such as A.J. Casson, Doris McCarthy, Alan Collier, Walter J. Phillips and David Blackwood. A selection of works from the gallery’s namesake, Frederick Horsman Varley, a member of the Group of Seven painters, is also to be showcased. Popular pieces such as Portrait of Kathy (Laughing) (c.1952-53) and new acquisitions, such as Shelled Buildings – France (c.1918) will be displayed, Ms Glaude said. The exhibition will be shown until January. Also on display in the main hall until Sept. 3, Da Bao (Takeout) features 17 artists from Canada and China in themes of cultural identity, Ms Glaude said. About half of the works in this exhibit are shipped from China, she added. Thanks to a $5,000 donation from IBM, gallery admission is free for the rest of the year. Crystallized: the Varley Gala takes place at the gallery at 7 p.m. tomorrow. For tickets or more information, visit the gallery or call Francesca Dauphinais at 905477-9511, ext. 3264.

Scion’s 2013 FR-S sports car rewards the skilled driver I’ve always been trained to look where I want to go. But it was hard to shift my eyes from the wall racing toward us. Luckily I wasn’t driving, so with a quick turn of the steering wheel, a kick of the clutch and a little finessing of the handbrake, we began drifting through the turn sideways, tires shrieking all the way. It may seem out of control, but if you know anything about the sport of drifting, it’s all about control – particularly when you have one of Canada’s best, and most aggressive, competitors behind the wheel. Toyota set up this little demonstration at the Autodrome St-Eustache, about 50 km northwest of Montreal. There, they turned professional drift racer Pat Cyr loose for about five hours, individually taking journalists and company representatives for a ride in the 2013 Scion FR-S. The point of the exercise wasn’t to show off Cyr’s driving skills, but to showcase the capability of Toyota’s

The 2013 Scion FR-S sports car has style, but just about everything on its exterior has purpose. The lower cover on the front bumper, for example, helps direct air flow from the engine compartment, reducing drag and improving stability, as does a relief on the Pagoda roof.

into the floor. You can beat on the car all day, drive it home from the track and take it to work next day.” To look at the FR-S’s power specs – 200 hp and 151 lb/ft of torque – you’d think such feats beyond the capability of its 2.0-litre boxer engine. But this car, like the Mazda Miata, is not about brute force. Nothing is overdone, but all components work together in near-perfect harmony, delivering the kind of experience that Toyota President Akio Toyota had envisioned when he made a commitment to build a car that “rewards skillful driving.” The FR-S (and Subaru’s BRZ) are actually a joint project, with Subaru providing the engine, chassis and suspension. Their flat-four engine, however, includes the D-4S injection system Please turn to WHEELS page 4

The FR-S’s aggressively-bolstered fabric front seats hold you like a catcher’s mitt. Once seated, you feel close to the road – only 400 mm from the ground to your hip point.

Developed by Subaru, but including Toyota’s D-4S injection system adopted from the Lexus IS F, this 2.0-litre, flat-four “boxer” engine delivers 200 hp and 151 lb/ft of torque. That’s 100 hp per litre with no turbo.

IS F, and Toyota also supplied both transmissions. The overall design itself is inspired by three Toyota models: the legendary AE86 generation of Corolla (the rear-drive coupe model introduced in 1983), the sleek 2000GT from the late 1960s and the Sports 800. The ideals behind these cars – and particularly the AE86 which is still popular with track enthusiasts today – have been brought together in the FR-S: light weight, excellent power-to-weight ratio, low

centre of gravity and superb balance. Indeed, the FR-S tips the scales at only 2,758 lbs, and its weight is distributed 53/47 front-to-rear. This creates a vehicle that loves to corner, with just enough understeer to make it fun. Lightweight 17-inch alloys, shod with not overly sticky 215/45/R17 summer tires help you kick out the back end when needed. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) works to prevent this, and Sport VSC allows the rear tires to slide out a little. Or turn the system

The 2013 FR-S has a driver focused cockpit – its centre-mounted tach is the focus of the three-gauge cluster. This features an easy-to-read inset digital display and includes a programmable shift indicator to warn you of impending redline.

the brakes as you’re going hard into a corner and you’ll hear and feel the engine speed rise to match wheel speed as the transmission downshifts. This is ideal in a track situation, but most weekend racers would probably opt for the manual. No matter which transmission you choose, all models benefit from a Torsen limited-slip differential – another reason this vehicle feels so composed in the corners. Other than a few outward styling differences (ie. the BRZ gets a slotted grille, FR-S is egg-crate – and reversed), both cars are nearly identical. But in terms of content, the FR-S , like other Scion vehicles, is mono-spec, which means you get a single well-equipped model with numerous options for performance and personalization. The cars we drove at St. Eustache were base vehicles with an upgraded $515 Pioneer audio system, but I found the $25,990 manual-shift FR-S just fine as-is. Ditto for the $27,170 automatic. The manual BRZ starts at $27,295 ($28,495 with automatic) and can be optioned up to even higher trim that includes heated leather seats and dual-zone climate control. But I’d save the dough. Sure, I’m thrifty, but the grippy fabric seats in the FR-S work for me,

and in a cabin this small, there’s no need for two heating and cooling zones. When I say small, it’s not so much up front but in back where passengers better not be much over five-foot-six. And front occupants need to be mindful about moving their seats forward. This area, however, is better suited to cargo, where the rear seat folds flat and provides enough space to take a set of tires to the track. Which is where the FR-S really shines. Sure, it’s great fun on your daily commute, but drive it hard and you’ll find out what Akio Toyoda meant when he demanded a car that was “built by passion, not by committee.”

The aerodynamic body of the new Scion FR-S sportscar was inspired by the sleek Toyota 2000GT from the late 1960s. FR-S stands for Front engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport, and it is the fifth model in the Scion lineup sold in Canada.

off for better track performance and the full drifting experience. All this along with a lower centre of gravity than Porsche Cayman, Nissan GT-R and Subaru WRX. After being tossed about by Pat Cyr on the drifting circuit, I took both manual and automatic models through numerous laps on the track, not to mention several runs on a slalom course. The six-speed manual shifter, as expected, was a joy to work. It has short, tight throws, just the right amount of friction and plenty of feel. It was the perfect accompaniment to this free-revving engine. And so, it turned out, was the six-speed automatic. I completed a couple of laps with the system in normal mode and full stability control, yet was still impressed with its quick shifts, decent throttle response and willingness to accelerate. In Sport mode – even without the paddle shifters – the auto fired off gear changes more rapidly than many double-clutch transmissions I’ve tested, and held each gear to just below redline. Throttle response was now even quicker, and I would estimate zero-100 km/h acceleration times for this model to be close to the manual’s 7.3 seconds. Also impressive is the system’s automatic ‘throttle-blipping.’ Apply

Urban parks expected ahead of schedule By L.H. Tiffany Hsieh

thsieh@yrmg.com

Oogled

Three town-owned parks will be delivered earlier than anticipated at the World On Yonge site in Thornhill. Markham’s development services committee OK’d a request from Liberty Development Corporation Tuesday to proceed with the design and construction of these

parks in advance of the town’s projected schedule. According to a staff report, Liberty is motivated to build these parks early for marketing and promotional reasons and to make sure the parks are finished at the same time as occupancy of the adjacent commercial and residential units. The parks will be built over the privately owned underground

parking garage. They will be urban in character, largely with hard surfaces, planting, seating, shade structures, water features or fountains and other associated site amenities. The cost of the design, construction and contract administration of the park will be financed by the developer. Minimum value is set at $1.5 million per acre based on about

1.4 acres of parks for a total of $2 million. Markham will reimburse the developer subject to compliance with terms and conditions. The design will likely proceed through the summer and fall with the requisite community meeting to take place in the winter, the report states. Construction is anticipated next summer.

Council to settle parking vs. patio debate Unionville Main Street merchants don’t want less parking By L.H. Tiffany Hsieh

thsieh@yrmg.com

A showdown over outdoor patios and parking spaces is brewing on Main Street Unionville and for safety reasons, Markham council could nix one or the other for good next week. “The parking and patio are intertwined,” Unionville Councillor Don Hamilton said. “You can’t have patios when cars are parked there.” The problem of patios encroaching illegally onto interlocked parking spaces — between the sidewalk and the road — on the west side of Main Street Unionville has been around for a number of years, Mr. Hamilton said. He said there are typically only three businesses on the street that put patios out in the summer. Earlier this year, Markham discontinued boulevard patios for public safety reasons. On Monday, the town’s general committee will vote on a staff recommendation to prohibit parking on the west side of the street at all times, except from 6 to 9 a.m. Monday to Friday. If passed, about 25 street parking spaces could be lost during peak business hours, Mr. Hamilton said, adding that many

merchants on the street already feel there aren’t enough parking spaces on the east side of the street, behind the shops. If parking stays, Mr. Hamilton said there will be “no point” at Tuesday’s council meeting in considering allowing outdoor patios during summer. According to a staff report, the parking prohibition is recommended to address safety concerns for pedestrians and patio users as well as concerns with obstructed sightlines for vehicles turning off and onto the street. The weekday morning parking allowance is to allow temporary parking during non-peak hours for customers attending the two existing coffee shops on the street. Markham council will also consider a proposed encroachment agreement to allow patios on the street over the summer and into the fall this year. Requirements proposed in the agreement include a $2-million liability insurance (naming the town as an additional insured party) and a submission of a detailed patio plan. It’s proposed that smoking and amplified music not be permitted on the patios. Mr. Hamilton said he doesn’t mind the patio or the parking either way. “I’m for safety and I’m glad this has surfaced so we can address it,” he said.

From page 1.

The original location identified for the facility was a town-owned, 25-acre property near Markham Road and Kirkham Drive, behind Costco. A $4.6-million community park complete with features such as soccer/cricket fields, picnic area, splash pad, mini skate park and a community garden has been proposed for this site. Another small park is being proposed on the community centre site, which will see 8.4 acres devoted to the building and 5 acres to the future park. “So residents will get two parks,” Mr. Kanapathi said. He said Markham council chose the Middlefield Road site for the community centre and library

because it offers more visibility and accessibility for students and seniors. The site behind Costco lacks public transportation, he said. According to the architect

Andrew Frontini, who presented the facility’s site layout and program to the town’s general committee Monday, the community centre will have a strong building presence on 14th Avenue — build-

ing as close to the street as possible — with 400 parking spaces at the rear. Total construction cost is estimated at $52 million, Mr. Frontini said.

Mr. Kanapathi said construction is expected to start in 2013, with building completion in 2015 at the latest. “It’s a gift for the community,” he said. “It’s a wonderful facility.”

EMPLOYEE PRICING EVENT Three local students might get their ticket to Oz today as they compete for a coveted spot in CBC-TV’s Over the Rainbow reality show. Julia Gartha, from Unionville, Amanda Silcoff, from Vaughan, and Nobleton’s Sarah Forestieri, a student of St. Elizabeth C.H.S. in Thornhill, were among the 100 young women selected as part of today’s callbacks for the show that airs in September. Starting at 7:30 a.m. this morning, the top competitors from across the country were to battle it out in Toronto for the chance to capture one of 10 spots in the live competition series. The winner of the series will star in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Canadian production of The Wizard of Oz, opening at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto this December. The competition so far, which involved

nearly 600 contestants lining up after midnight outside the CBC building on Front St. W., was exciting and intimidating, said 16-year-old Amanda, who attends a private school in Thornhill. “Each and every one of the people there were absolutely amazing,” she said yesterday, as she headed into a session with her Toronto vocal coach. “When they handed me the Golden Ticket” (entitling her to today’s callback) I was speechless. I didn’t know what to say.” Last night, the contestants met downtown to walk to the Princess of Wales theatre to watch War Horse, she said. Sarah Forestieri was equally thrilled to be picked after auditioning in Montreal. A vocal major in the Regional Arts Program at St. Elizabeth, playing Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz is something the 17-year-old said she has dreamed of her entire life. — Kim Zarzour

Helmet laws can discourage adults from cycling, locals say BY JOE FANTAUZZI

jfantauzzi@yrmg.com

A coroner’s review calling for all cyclists to wear helmets in Ontario has been well received in York Region. But simply making everyone wear a helmet while encouraging an increase in bicycle ridership may not be as simple as it seems. The review, headed by

Ontario deputy chief coroner of investigations Dr. Dan Cass, examined 129 deaths between Jan. 1, 2006 and Dec. 31, 2010. Among the 14 recommendations were that bike helmets, currently not required for cyclists 18 and older, be required for everyone. The review also recommended placing side guards on heavy trucks to protect

cyclists from being pulled underneath. Noting some adults do not want to wear helmets, the coroner’s office also suggested an evaluation of the impact of mandatory helmet rules on cycling should accompany any change of the law. That’s because some believe helmet laws scare potential cyclists away,

Markham cycling and pedestrian advisory committee vicechairperson Peter Miasek, 64, said. The coroner’s report also notes some critics of mandatory helmet legislation point to the drop in cycling Australia experienced after its helmet law was introduced. Some European jurisdictions have decided to encourage higher ridership without attaching mandatory helmet use, Mr. Miasek said. While he does not wear a helmet, he tries to keep to trails and residential streets.

If he has to ride arterial roads, he rides the sidewalks. “I personally feel I can manage the risk,” he said, but if required by law, he will wear a helmet.

After a two-year consultation process, Markham’s Varley Village, in the heart of Unionville, will be free of new development standards aimed to keep a lid on so-called monster homes. About 654 property owners in the Varley Village area responded to a survey asking whether or not they would support additional infill zoning regulations. With a 58-per-cent response rate, 55 per cent of homeowners said they do not support added regulations, 44 per cent said they do and 1 per cent said they have no opinion. “This is really democracy in action,” Unionville Councillor Don Hamilton said. “It was brought forward by residents for residents and the public has spoken.” The Varley Village is sandwiched between Hwy. 7 and Carlton Road and includes Sciberras Road, Fred Varley Drive, a portion of Fitzgerald Avenue, Krieghoff Avenue, Gainsville Avenue and a portion of Pomander Road. Based on the survey results, the town’s development services committee endorsed the Unionville subcommittee’s recommendation not to proceed with an infill housing bylaw Tuesday.

However, Mr. Hamilton said there will be closer scrutinization of the town’s committee of adjustment approvals. According to a staff report, members of a working group perceive that many of the newer developments regarded as “overbuilt” and “incompatible” are the result of decisions of the committee of adjustment with respect to zoning variance requests. The report stated town staff will continue to monitor the situation in Varley Village and throughout Markham, as well as provide comments to the committee of adjustment on variance applications.

COMMUNITY: 3,000-kilometre trek requires plenty of training

Ride of lifetime awaits Markham cyclists by Simone Joseph

sjoseph@yrmg.com

Three Markham residents are gearing up for the ride of their lives. The men will bicycle from Toronto to Austin, Texas, in October. The ride will benefit Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation and the programs it offers. Ryan Lau went from doing 5-km rides in mid-March to riding 125 km during one of his recent long rides. Starting out his training was tough, Mr. Lau said. “That was not fun to begin with. My body was not in shape to go these kind of distances,” he said. But friend and fellow rider Billy Cheung’s can-do attitude motivated him. “Billy is quite the role model and motivator,” Mr. Lau said. He has tried to adopt Billy’s mentality. “You should never let anyone tell you you can’t do anything. If you want to do something, do it. Don’t put too much thought into it,” Mr. Lau said, describing his friend’s attitude. Loris Bonora’s preparation for the ride includes a workout with personal trainer Mark Recaido who trains him in jeet kune doo, a form of martial arts he has been practicing for two years. He knew he needed someone to

work with one-on-one to push him. All Wellspring centres have libraries full of books, tapes and DVDs in a variety of titles pertaining to cancer. Wellspring’s model for providing supportive cancer care has been developed by a team of oncology experts, working with cancer patients, family members and caregivers. Wellspring offers support in four areas: coping skills (yoga, tai chi, Qi Gong, mediation and more), expressive programs (expressing feelings through art, music, writing or quilting), support groups (share experiences with people who are in a similar situation) and education (presentations and workshops offer advice on of living with cancer — workshops focus on everything from financial and emotional concerns to post-treatment topics). As part of this Wellspring Peloton Challenge, five pelotons of six to seven riders will travel more than 3,000 kilometres in eight days. Each peloton team will ride six hours and have 24 hours to drive ahead to their next relay point. Each rider has committed to raise $10,000 for the cause. Visit wellspringride.ca for more information on Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation.

The Unionville Jets bantam selects were recognized for their efforts on and off the ice this past season by receiving the Award of Hometown Excellence during the

recent Ontario Minor Hockey Association annual general meeting in Richmond Hill. The Jets were one of two teams from the OMHA, which has over 100,000 players, to receive the award.

Lisa McConnell, Unionville Minor Hockey Association president, was elated. She said the players combined to give back to the Unionville Minor Hockey Association almost 350 hours of volunteer time over the

course of the 2011-12 season. As well, the team collected food for the Markham Food Bank with Hockey with Heart, toys at Christmas for the Markham Fire Department and some of the players volunteered at the Unionville

Minor Hockey Association’s Let’s Learn Hockey Orientation Camp, as well as at Breakfast with Santa and the Unionville BIA’s Family Day event on Main Street, among other things.  — Michael Hayakawa

The moment has arrived. It’s graduation time. All the work and study has resulted in achieving the goal. We honour our students who have made it through high school and college. Well done! At the same time we want to commend the teachers who have brought their students to this accomplishment. When considering teachers, Jesus is The Master Teacher for us all. He taught about the meaning and purpose of life. His lessons are timeless and enduring. Some of the life principles He laid out for us are recorded at Matthew 7:12-23. He stated that how we want people to treat us, is how we should treat them (v.12). We are to be careful not to become compliant with the culture of the day but to find and follow the will of God for our lives (vv.13,14). We need to be careful about what we believe (v.15) so that our lives will be both meaningful and fulfilling (v.17). The Master Teacher calls for personal responsibility. It is important to be aware that graduation is not the end, but a new beginning. There’s much more ahead. While graduation marks a point to which students have grown, there are more lessons to be learned and maturity to be attained.

Congratulations to our Grads! Keep up the good work! “Study the Scriptures that are able to make you wise and you will be equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:15-17).

There’s a future graduation for everyone. One day we will all ‘graduate’ from life on earth into eternity. The text book to study is the Word of God, the Bible. The course to practice and follow is spelled out there. And it should be our goal to hear the Master Teacher commend us with His “well done! Enter into the joy of thy Lord” (Matthew 25:21). If we faithfully practice what we learn we can expect to graduate with honours (Colossians 3:2324).
