Freedom Walk steps into town

Entrepreneur turns passions into profits

Push for victim rights started in Newmarket, co-founder says

BY TERESA LATCHFORD

BY TERESA LATCHFORD

Alex Vydrin tips his entrepreneurial hat at the current youth unemployment rates. The 20-year-old Newmarket youth has always had a nose for business and while youths continue to struggle with unemployment rates almost double that of adults, he thinks the solution is to run with your imagination and passion. The recent business marketing graduate took a school assignment and turned his passions into a flourishing business locally and internationally.

The final stretch of the Freedom Walk includes Yonge Street in Newmarket. The cross-Canada walk that began in Vancouver stops at the York Region Administrative building June 21 and 22 before wrapping up in Toronto. With five men covering 4,500 kilometres in 63 days, the hope is to raise funds and awareness to provide support to victims of violent crime through the Canadian Crime Victims Scholarship Fund and the CCVF Secondary School Scholarship. “Newmarket is where it all started 13 years ago,” Canadian Crime Victim Foundation cofounder Joe Wamback said as he travelled with the walk, trading paper footprints for donations to help support victims of violent crimes and their families. The goal is to not only raise funds for a number of initiatives and support services, but also to spread the word that offenders and victims still don’t have equality when it comes to supSee CRIMINALS, page 8.

“I collect two things: hats and sneakers,” he laughed. “I thought, What could be better than combining the best of both worlds?’” He created a hat that features wide sneaker laces in the front that are interchangeable, so any outfit can be matched. After completing the assignment and with some coaxing from his friends, he made a few hats to test the market. He sold 1,000 VLACED hats in just three months. Now a year in, he not only has the authentic streetware in local skate shops in Aurora, Toronto and Bradford, but he is also shipping to retailers in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, United States and throughout Canada.

Father experiences new tradition Paul Beka didn’t celebrate day for dads in native Slovakia BY AMANDA PERSICO

apersico@yrmg.com

No number of courses could have prepared Paul Beka for his first experience feeding his newborn daughter. The York Region resident took three parenting courses prior to the birth of his daughter, Victoria, now 3-1/2 years old. “Men don’t really have the opportunity to hold a small, small baby,” he said. “I didn’t have a chance to practise before the baby came.” While the courses taught him how to be a better parent, he learned on the day Victoria was born what it means to be a father. After a rough delivery, Victoria didn’t take to breast feeding. Nurses told him his new bundle of joy wasn’t big enough for a bottle, so they tied feeding tubes to Mr. Beka’s finger.

‘I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about becoming a father. You watch movies, but it is not like that at all. I didn’t know that I didn’t know.’ Paul Beka

on learning from fatherhood preparation courses

“Three or four hours after she was born, there I was,” he said. “She was being fed by her father. I always said I never believed in miracles, but now, I have one running around my house.” Mr. Beka received his first Father’s Day gift from his daughter this week. “She was so excited she made something at nursery school, she wanted to give it to me right away,” he said. He grew up in Slovakia, where Father’s Day isn’t celebrated and where traditional family relationships and roles are different than in Canada. As Mr. Beka’s father worked a lot, he and his family lived with his grandparents. “Grandparents were a big part of the family,” he said. “But, there are only two of us here with a small child. It’s different.” Mr. Beka took a father preparation course through Catholic Community Services of York Region about four years ago. After the first course, he took two more and is now taking a preparation for kindergarten course. “Coming to Canada, everything is new

and unknown,” he said. “I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about becoming a father. You watch movies, but it is not like that at all. I didn’t know that I didn’t know.” The courses taught him about the province’s health care and education systems. They also taught new fathers how to support mothers during pregnancy and gave insight into feeding, parenting, disciplining and playing with your child. Fathers could ask experts in the maternity field about what to expect, he said. One of the things touched on in the course was time management. The surprise to many fathers-to-be is learning the difference between quality time and passive time with a child, course leader and group services co-ordinator Jamal Gharavi said. “The most important thing is giving time and attention,” said Mr. Gharavi, who is also a pediatrician and father of two adults. “Without time, creating a bond is impossible. Giving time and attention will build a strong relationship.” Mr. Gharavi breaks down how many hours each day are spent sleeping and at work, leaving a small window for interacting with your child. “After all the calculations, some dads have three hours with their kids,” he said. “You can watch a movie for three hours, which doesn’t count as bonding time, or you can play catch for 10 minutes.” Even if it’s for less time, playing and interacting with your child has more of an impact, he said. “Learning about time is a ‘wow’ moment,” he said. Father-specific programming at CCSYR starts in July. There is also a new program for both fathers and grandfathers.

Region spending $1.1M on Internet upgrades CHRIS TRABER

ctraber@yrmg.com

York Region employees will benefit from a $1.1-million Internet upgrade. The region’s finance and administration committee approved a proposal from Net Cyclops Inc. to provide the professional services, hardware and software for the design and implementation of Internet access infrastructure for the region. The contract is valued at $1,093,862, excluding taxes. In 2008, the region’s network experienced

a number of failures and instability. To address the network issues, staff took temporary remedial technical measures and an extensive network architecture assessment was conducted. The assessment was completed in 2009 and included a five-year plan, split into three phases: perimeter upgrade and consolidation, Internet access infrastructure and network core redesign. The estimated total cost was $2,300,000. The first phase was completed in 2010 and replaced aging network firewalls with

a highly available network perimeter infrastructure. It also resulted in a significantly more stable and secure network and provided the strong perimeter required for the second phase to proceed. Net Cyclops will complete the second phase of the project, resulting in greater network reliability, capacity, security, performance and traffic control capabilities. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year and will provide the necessary environment for the third phase network core redesign, scheduled for 2013.

POLICE LEASES The committee also endorsed York Region police services board requests for three lease renewals at the Yonge/Mulock Centre, 16775 Yonge St., Newmarket. The professional development bureau and uniform recruiting unit, professional standards bureau and integrated domestic violence unit are housed there. Committee gave the green light to a threeyear lease for 5,245 square feet of space at an annual cost of $120,844, effective Oct. 1. It also approved leasing two units comprising 2,884 sq. ft. for a period of three years, effective July 1, at an annual cost of $74,868. A two-year lease for an additional 6,923 sq. ft., at a yearly cost of $179,721, effective July 1, was also given the nod. Committee was also informed York Regional Police is working with Seneca College on a joint training facility initiative at its King Campus. That would see professional development and uniform recruiting, along with the training branch, located at 4 District in Vaughan, move to the new facility. The project is in the planning stages with Seneca. Dates for occupancy are yet to be confirmed due to co-ordination of the various requirements of each partner. However, a tentative date of 2015-16 for occupancy by York Regional Police is planned. In the interim, the location at the Yonge/ Mulock Centre is required.

Maybe MPPs should get pay cut, too? Re: Eye surgeon sounds alarm on OHIP cuts, June 7. It seems that MPPs Helena Jaczek, Deb Matthews and the McGuinty government’s main justification for cutting the specialists’ fees is that technology has made their job easier. If that were the case then logically since physicians are clearly not the exclusive beneficiaries of technology improvements, everyone’s pay should be reduced including those of our MPPs. Has this happened? Obviously not. The overwhelming fees and prices of the majority of services and products (except maybe flat screen TVs) have not gone down in spite of technology.

FROM YORKREGION.COM Raising fares bad idea Why does YRT always figure when the going gets tough, increase fares? Wouldn’t that give you the opposite effect? When you raise fares, you lose riders and are only punishing the riders who have no other choice but to use transit. Perhaps if YRT lowered fares, more people would look at transit as an alternative. By continuing in this upwards fare amount mode, they make owning a car look more attractive.

CONCERNEDONE RE: TRANSIT RIDERSHIP INCREASES DESPITE STRIKE, JUNE 14

Endangered species face 1-2 government punch C

anada’s environmental laws are under attack by the federal and Ontario governments. In Ottawa, Bill C-38’s farreaching measures were announced in the budget. Ontario’s government introduced a similar omnibus bill with profound implications for the environment. The 420-page Bill C-38 will gut a raft of federal laws passed over the years to ensure our air, water and most vulnerable wildlife populations are protected. Casualties include the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, Fisheries Act, Species at Risk Act, National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy Act and the Kyoto Implementation Act. In a surprisingly similar action, the government of Ontario recently introduced Bill 55. The 327-page bill seriously affects no less than six important resource and wildlife laws, with amendments that strike at the heart of Ontario’s Endangered Species Act and other vital environmental legislation. These changes would reduce the level of protection and undermine public management of cherished forests, lakes and rivers and the immeasurable benefits they provide.

David Suzuki When Ontario introduced its Endangered Species Act in 2007, legal experts and advocates lauded it as one of the strongest environmental laws in North America. Ontario’s leadership was commendable, as it established a strong legal benchmark to protect at-risk wildlife in the province and rare Carolinian forests only a few years before we celebrated the 2010 United Nations International Year of Biodiversity. Although biodiversity loss receives less attention than issues such as climate change, it threatens the very life-support systems of our planet: clear air and water and productive soil. This is not a problem of some far off tropical rainforest nation or our over-

fished oceans. Scientists say Ontario is particularly vulnerable to biodiversity decline and has a global responsibility for stewardship. By weakening its Endangered Species Act — eliminating legal timelines for the development of species recovery strategies, creating loopholes for resource industries such as forestry and mining and further limiting legal protection of endangered wildlife on private lands — Ontario will be unprepared to cope with threats to its ecosystems and biodiversity, such as urban sprawl, the spread of invasive species and climate change. The federal government has justified its efforts to eviscerate environmental laws by claiming caring for nature is a barrier to economic prosperity. But this ideologically driven agenda will harm our nation and undermine the future for our children. We can’t hope to have healthy economies and communities in Ontario or the rest of Canada without healthy ecosystems and species diversity. Species and ecosystem losses affect production of valuable economic commodities such as food, timber and medicine and compromise many ecological services that sustain the health and wellbeing of our communities.

Nature helps regulate climate, disease outbreaks and waste; provides aesthetic, recreational and spiritual value and supports services such as water purification. A recent David Suzuki Foundation study found biodiversity in Ontario’s Greenbelt alone helps filter, store and regulate drinking water for millions of people in the Greater Toronto Area — a service worth more than $1 billion a year that saves municipalities hundreds of millions in capital costs just to upgrade water infrastructure. The health of our air, water and most vulnerable wildlife populations are too important to be treated so callously. Ontario must withdraw the proposed amendments to its Endangered Species Act and other environmental laws. The environment can’t simply be a fair-weather friend for politicians running for election. True leadership means committing to the long haul and ensuring air, water, land and wildlife are protected now and in the future across Canada. Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation terrestrial conservation and science program director Faisal Moola.

The grant he received helped him start Your Home Education Inc., a service with 150 teachers ready and willing to give music lessons or tutor students in various subjects throughout York Region and the Greater Toronto Area. The growing trend of entrepreneurial youths hasn’t gone unnoticed by the federal and provincial governments, as they continue to offer support for youths looking to create their own incomes through the Summer Company program and others with FedDev Ontario.

30-something retiree shares money secrets BY AMANDA PERSICO

For more information, visit stopworking.ca

apersico@yrmg.com

Playing the stocks is more than a get-richquick idea. For Derek Foster, one of Canada’s youngest retirees, investing in the stock market is more about establishing a lasting income. The father of five retired at 34 after spending his 20s backpacking across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. His investing approach allowed him to become a millionaire in his 30s. “It is about simple investing,� he said. “It is not about getting a bunch of stocks for $10

and turning around to sell it at $100. A lot of people lose money that way.� Now, you can learn his investing secrets as the author of six best-selling financial books is on the road, sharing his investment philosophy. For him, the smart way to funnel your funds is to find stocks with longevity. While Apple stocks might be hot now, that might not be the case when someone else

It is that dividend that gets re-invested. “Investing is like planting seeds,� he said. “You want the tree to grow. But many people want to rush that growth and cut the tree down to sell firewood. I would rather let the tree grow and harvest the fruit. You can keep harvesting fruit forever and ever.� In keeping with the analogy, you can take the seeds from the fruit and start the process over again, he added. Now, more than ever, it is important to him to share his theory, as more Canadians are without company pensions and left to build their own. His talks are geared to people across the financial spectrum, from new workers to those thinking about their retirement nest eggs.

health&wellness Are you eating too much salt? Sodium is a nutrient found in table salt and many other foods. Your body needs some sodium to function, but too much may lead to high blood pressure (a major risk factor for stroke, heart disease and kidney disease). According to Health Canada, most Canadians take in more than twice the amount of sodium they need in a day. Healthy adults need only 1,500 milligrams of sodium each day. Healthy children need only 1,000 to 1,500 mg of sodium a day. Sources of sodium Processed foods (including restaurant and fast foods) account for 77 per cent of the sodium we eat. Another 12 per cent is found naturally in foods, six per cent we add at the table and five per cent we add during cooking. So 88 per cent of all the sodium in our diet is not present naturally, it is added during food manufacturing or preparation. Approximately 30 per cent of our sodium comes from mixed dishes (such as macaroni and cheese, lasagne, beef stew, scalloped potatoes, seasoned or flavoured rices); 14 per cent from bread and bread-type products; nine per cent from processed meats such as deli meats and seasoned meats; seven per cent from soups; five per cent from cheeses;

four per cent from milk products; and four per cent from gravies and sauces.

• Look for products with a sodium content of less than 15 per cent DV (daily value).

Health risks In adults, a diet high in sodium can lead to an increased risk of high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke, heart disease and kidney disease. In children, high sodium intake can lead to increased risk of high blood pressure, the development of high blood pressure later in life, and the tendency for children to prefer foods with high salt content. The good news is, if Canadians reduce their sodium intake, their blood pressure is likely to decrease.

Prepare healthy meals and snacks: • Eat fewer packaged, ready-to-eat and take-out foods. • Make your own soups, sauces and salad dressings. • Eat more vegetables and fruit. Use fresh or frozen instead of canned when possible. • Cook pasta, rice, other grains and hot cereal without adding salt. • Taste your food before adding salt.

Reduce your risk Read the information on food packages when shopping: • Buy unsalted and low sodium foods when possible. Look for phrases such as sodium free, low sodium, reduced sodium or no added salt on the package. • Compare food labels. Buy products with the lowest amount of sodium. • Look for foods that have less than 360 mg of sodium in a serving.

Make smart choices when eating out: • Order smaller portions or share with someone. • Ask for gravy, sauces and salad dressings on the side and use only small amounts. • Flavour your food with lemon or pepper instead of adding salt, sauces or gravy. • Balance out your day. If you ate a highsodium lunch, make sure you eat a lower sodium supper. • Ask for your meal to be cooked without salt or monosodium glutamate (MSG), a seasoning that is very high in sodium.

The Selection is Natural... the Combinations are Endless

More York Region schools will offer specialist high skills majors this fall. The program allows a student to focus on a career path matching skills and interests, while earning an Ontario secondary school diploma. When a student completes a bundle of eight to 10 courses in a specific field, such as business, environment or manufacturing, he or she gets a seal on his or her diploma. The programs allow students to earn industry certifications, such as first aid and CPR, and gain hands-on experience with employers. “Programs like this are preparing our students to get jobs in fulfilling and exciting industries,” Ontario Education Minister Laurel Broten said during the announcement of the program expansion. “Expanding these programs will give even more students the skills they need to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow.” Next year, 4,000 more students at 670 high schools across the province will be able to participate in the program. While many secondary schools in the York Region and York Catholic district school boards offer some of the specialist high skills major programs, many will add to the list due to demand. The public board is leading the pack when it comes to the expanding the program,

For a list of what new programs will be offered in York Region schools this fall, visit yorkregion.com

school-work transition consultant Steve Poste said, adding York Region public high schools submitted the maximum number of proposals for new programs this year. “Students get to do a lot of neat things in these programs,” he said. “The demand is there, so we are trying to give our students the most options.” The public board had 900 students enrolled in specialist programs this year. Next year, it hopes to bump that number to 1,600 to reach its goal of having 10 per cent of its Grade 11 and 12 students enrolled in the program by October. The board works with schools to determine which programs to offer, assessing where past graduates have gone, where current students plan to head after graduation and what industries their communities offer to support co-op opportunities. An application, resembling a business case, is then submitted to the Education Ministry, which approves or denies the program at the particular school. While 16 of the board’s applications were approved this year, the ministry has pre-approved the rest, meaning students can take the courses and be grandfathered in when the programs officially start in 2013.

Lexus IS 250 still a fresh look among compact sport sedans

Neil Moore York Region Media Group Wheelstalk.com It was the bad boy of the Lexus lineup and I loved it. The original IS compact sports sedan, which hit our shores in 2001, was really quite ‘old school.’

With a gutsy 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine, bulletproof five-speed manual gearbox and ‘tuner car’ styling, the IS 300 was unlike any other Lexus in the lineup. It was more sport than luxury, and although its specs weren’t particularly impressive at 215 hp and 218 lb/ft of torque, the IS 300 was surprisingly nimble. Its mill delivered plenty of low-end grunt, and with the manual shift, you could exploit its broad torque curve. The all-new IS came as a 2006 model, with a more sophisticated look, thanks to the company’s L-finesse design philosophy. Its body was longer and wider, with a sleek, coupe-like profile. Short front and rear overhangs, and pronounced wheel flares gave this car an athletic, hunkered-down appearance. This second-generation IS was introduced in two flavours: the IS 250 with 2.5-litre V6 (204 hp and 185 lb/ft of torque) and the IS 350 with

Tsunami bike to be preserved: pg 23

The 2012 IS 250 AWD is coupe-like in appearance with its long, tapering hood and short rear deck. Combined with pronounced wheel flares and short overhangs, this vehicle has a muscular stance. 3.5-litre V6 (306 hp and 277 lb/ft of torque). The ISF came along two years later with more tricked-out styling (including quadexhaust diffusers), and more importantly a 5.0-litre V8 under the hood that delivered a whopping 416 hp and 371 lb/ft of torque. There are three IS models (two with AWD)

and all with distinctly different personalities. I attended the launch of all three, and remember at the time thinking the IS 350 really hit the sweet spot in terms of power, and the IS 250 was a bit lacking. Please see IS 250, page 21

McLaren MP4-12C now even more powerful METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

McLaren Automotive, rather than resting on its laurels, has instead announced a package of enhancements that will make its 12C high performance sports car even more invigorating to drive yet even easier to live with. Headlining the changes is a power increase that takes the maximum output of the midmounted, twin turbocharged V8 engine to 616hp to give yet more vivid acceleration at track speeds with no loss in efficiency. McLaren’s engineers have made modifications to the 12C’s engine and SSG transmission increasing responsiveness.

Ease of use, a phrase not often associated with cars of this type, is further improved through a host of detail changes while a wider variety of paint, leather and wheel options give customers yet more scope for personalization. The 12C’s unique Intake Sound Generator (ISG) system, which controls the amount of engine intake sound heard in the cabin, is now programmable across three levels. This latest iteration of the 12C, which at launch set a new benchmark among its competitors for power, efficiency and pioneering technology, will go into production later this year, and at a price that starts from (US) $239,400.

McLaren has made several improvements to the MP4-12C supercar.

Times have changed, and the competition has caught up with and in some cases has surpassed the 350. Still, it’s impressively fast and fun to drive. But for its 2.5-litre sibling, you can now find comparable power in a naturally-aspirated four cylinder. Still, there’s something to be said about the entire IS series, be it the styling that is still fresh, the impeccable Lexus fit and finish on the inside, and the company’s legendary build quality. And all this can be had for a starting MSRP of $32,900. Not that this is chump change, but in the base rear-drive 2012 IS 250, it buys a lot of car.

For starters, you get a six-speed manual transmission. The six-speed automatic (with paddle shifters) is available for another $1,600, but with this powerplant I’d suggest you save the cash. You also get 17-inch alloys, power heated mirrors with integrated signals, automatic headlamps, smart key with pushbutton start, dual-zone automatic climate control, leatherwrapped tilt/telescopic steering with audio and cruise controls, power windows with auto up/ down for all, multi-info display, Bluetooth and 13-speaker AM/FM CD/MP3/WMA audio system with 6-CD changer. You can option it up with, for example, the $5,400 sport package (which includes moonroof, heated and power adjustable leather seats, sporttuned suspension, 18-inch alloys and more), and

A tightly carved rear, twin exhausts and LED lights add to the IS 250’s sporty appearance.

The

a pile of pricey F-Sport options, like $3K for a set of forged aluminum wheels. And before you know it, this $33,000 car is now in the high $40s. My tester was the IS 250’s AWD variant, which for another $5,100 (MSRP $38,000) adds not only the company’s rear-bias all-wheel-drive system, but a six-speed automatic and some interior niceties like power adjust for the driver’s seat. If budget allows, there’s also a $3,700 Leather and Moonroof package, a $11,300 Luxury with Navigation package or, as tested, the $7,250 Leather with Moonroof and Navigation trim. This includes (as you’d expect) leather seating surfaces, moonroof and hard-drive based navigation, along with front seat heating and backup camera. My vehicle had no shortage of soft-touch surfaces on the dash and door panels, and its piano black on the centre console, door inserts and around the gearshift (with chrome bling) enhanced its premium look and feel. As did the double-stitched leather seating. Controls are intuitive and the large buttons and generous navigation screen are ideal for aging baby boomers. The moonroof added much-needed light to its mostly charcoal interior. Indeed, the passenger cabin is a pleasant place, but as long as you’re not travelling in back. Seats there are comfortable enough and attractively styled but there’s scant kneeroom or headroom for anybody much over five-footnine. And only if front occupants aren’t seated too far back. Suspension up front for all IS models is independent double-wishbone with gas shocks, coil springs and stabilizer bar. Rear suspension is multi-link with gas shocks, coils springs and stabilizer bar.

You can tighten it up with F-Sport sway bars, performance shocks and lowering springs, but I found the standard equipment provided a nice compromise between hard-core stability and comfort. Ride is firm enough for reasonably flat cornering, without undue harshness over rough pavement. The all-wheel-drive system, which I’ve driven both in snowy and dry conditions, does a good job routing power where needed. It distributes 70 per cent to the rear – for more of a performance feel – and up to 50 percent to the front, depending on wheel slippage. Speaking of power, the IS 250 is no road rocket. I remember the RWD version of this car launching from rest to 100 km/h in around eight seconds. The AWD version isn’t as quick. And despite the smaller displacement and lower power figures, it doesn’t have much of a fuel economy advantage over the IS 350, with combined city/highway fuel economy rated at 9.1 L/100 km for the 2.5-litre compared with 9.8 L/100 km for the 3.5. Interestingly, and unlike the IS 250, the AWD version of the IS 350 is about $6,300 cheaper than the rear-drive model, but much of that can be accounted for by its standard-equipped F-Sport package. Still, there’s almost a $7,000 difference between the IS 250 AWD and IS 350 AWD, so if you want all-weather stability with performance, expect a big hit on your wallet. Or save the extra dough and have a look at a compact sport sedan that still does so many things right. And delivers the kind of quality and reliability upon which Lexus has built its reputation.

Polo for Heart has raised more than $5 million for heart and stroke research.

It’s the world’s oldest team sport, and for over 33 years, fans and newcomers to polo have been coming to Polo for Heart to watch it being played by some of the world’s top competitors. And to help raise money for heart and stroke related charities. Highland GM has become involved with Polo for Heart, largely due to the drive of Cliff Sifton, president of the dealership. His father, Colonel Michael Sifton, was a devoted polo fan and player. He was also a strong supporter of charities – especially those involving heart-related research – since his father had passed away from a stroke.

superb food and drink, a traditional champagne divot stomp, and even a children’s village for junior polo enthusiasts. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s Stroke Recovery Centre at Sunnybrook Hospital, and towards purchasing an MRI machine at Southlake Regional Health Centre. General admission is $15 and children under 12 are free. The Gormley Polo Centre is located at 13401 Leslie St., Richmond Hill. For more information please visit www.poloforheart.org, www.highlandgm.com , or call 866-9808037.

The decision was made to put together an event that combined two of his passions: polo and heart research. Sifton and his mates at the Toronto Polo Club worked with the Heart Action Committee to launch the first Polo for Heart charity event. It drew 600 people and raised $25,000. Today, Cliff Sifton continues to follow in his father’s footsteps by supporting the event and presiding as honorary chairman. To date, Polo for Heart has raised in excess of $5 million for heart and stroke research. Taking place on June 15-17 at the Gormley Polo Centre, this year’s event promises to be a success, with TV news anchor Lloyd Robertson as honorary chair. It will include entertainment,

A Harley-Davidson motorcycle, recovered on the coast of British Columbia after drifting for more than a year and 4,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean following last year’s tsunami in Japan, will be preserved by the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. It will serve as a memorial to the tragedy that claimed more than 15,000 lives in accordance with the wishes of its owner, Ikuo Yokoyama. The remarkable story of the 2004 FXSTB Softail Night Train motorcycle’s survival and recovery by Canadian, Peter Mark, made international headlines after he found it washed ashore on a remote beach on British Columbia’s Graham Island at low tide. Mark discovered the motorcycle, still bearing its Japanese licence plate, along with several other items, in the remains of an insulated cargo van container where the motorcycle was

being stored by Yokoyama prior to the tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, 2011. Working with news agencies and representatives from Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada, and Harley-Davidson Japan, contact was made with 29-year-old Yokoyama, who lost his home and currently lives in temporary housing in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Harley extended an offer to return the bike to him and to restore it to running condition. Still struggling to rebuild his life in the aftermath of the disaster, which claimed the lives of three of his relatives, Yokoyama respectfully declined. Although grateful for the offer to repatriate his motorcycle and touched by the outpouring of support from Harley motorcycle riders A Harley-Davidson motorcycle that turned up on a British Columbia beach after being swept away around the world, Yokoyama’s strong desire in last year’s Japanese earthquake and tsunami is being preserved at the Harley-Davidson museum in instead is for his bike to be preserved in the the U.S. as a memorial to those who perished. Harley-Davidson Museum, in honour of those whose lives were lost or forever changed by the disaster.

It isn’t difficult to imagine the collective sigh of relief coming from high school gymnasiums in York Region after a spring season of watching the double horseshoes of the Bill Crothers Secondary School Colts teams kicking butt. A motion passed at the York Region Athletic Association’s annual general meeting last week should be the first step toward restoring level playing fields and appeasing rival schools feeling overwhelmed by the sports-oriented school in Unionville. During the spring season, Crothers won just about every title available at the senior Tier 1 level in which it fielded teams. The increasing pile of championships is a sore point among rival schools, since Crothers operates with access to student-athletes from across York Region and beyond. As expected, YRAA followed the outline of an Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations motion to restrict Crothers athletes from competing in their prime sport at the high school level. The ruling takes effect Sept. 4, although students currently attending or registered at Crothers for the 2012-13 school year are exempt. Students starting after Sept. 4 will be required to declare their primary sport and will not be permitted to play at a high school level in that activity. Essentially, it will take four years for the new ruling to work its way through the system. For Crothers, finding alternative competition for its top athletes in any sport may be the future. “I think this will have the impact OFSAA wants,” YRAA athletic coordinator Steve Shantz said. “But in this day and age, do you really want to discourage students from playing or find more appropriate competition for them? “I think sometimes there is too much emphasis that the only place you can win is on the scoreboard, but nobody wants to go into the season already knowing who will

Fans like these Dr. John M. Denison Secondary School Huskies supporters will be glad to hear the York Region Athletic Association is taking steps to ensure the Bill Crothers Secondary School Colts aren’t as dominant next season. win. If Crothers wins everything, it’s no good for anyone.” At the conclusion of its fourth school year, Crothers, which was created by the York Region District School Board for elite and high-performance athletes from around the region, is hitting full stride, with its first graduating class about to depart. Crothers is caught in the midst of clashing philosophies. On one hand, it provides a setting in which high-performance athletes can excel. On the other, its teams often outclass rivals due to the available talent in its hallways. Crothers athletic manager Derrick Stryker is well aware of the imbalance and says the school is exploring alternative competitive opportunities. “There will be internal changes,” he said.

“In some cases, we’ll be seeking outside competition. Maybe we’ll add another level to compete outside of high school. I think we’ll start to see our team sports enter into higher competition. It will happen before we are forced to do it.” Last fall, the senior girls basketball team created an independent schedule to compete against elite competition, such prep schools, in exhibition games and high-level tournaments. “We say, ‘Let’s provide a level of competition that is fair to all’,” Stryker said. “Our unique depth of talent is the issue. Every school has its elite athletes.” The residency issue remains unchanged, thereby permitting students from beyond the traditional boundaries to attend Crothers. It essentially comes down to the gap

between club-trained athletes and schooltrained athletes. “I think a lot of dynasty teams in the region got familiar with winning and maybe it’s a shock,” Stryker said. “I guess it depends on the coach and what their feelings are whether we’re liked or hated. We’re in a tough spot, but to the credit of (YRAA), we’ll get through it.” There are other sport-oriented schools in the province that have taken far less heat than Crothers. “We’re being supported in our own region,” Stryker said. “But we’re a hotspot in the province. I think YRAA can set the tone for the province.” Stryker concedes he feels a twinge of anxiety when he sees all the YRAA pennants raised at the school. However, he’s not about to apologize for hard work. “There’s not a lot of guilt among our coaches and not because they are bad people, but because the students and teachers are working hard,” he said. “They deserve to experience success. I get it. I understand a certain level of animosity exists. “It’s important for our students to wear BCSS on their chest and feel part of something at school and a bond with their friends.” Internal meetings in the coming weeks and again when school resumes will set the course for Crothers athletics next year. Shantz notes Crothers teams, while they may not win every championship, are represented disproportionately among the top two or three teams in most sports at the high school level. “Right now, Crothers teams are getting the competition they need at OFSAA, but they aren’t dominant there,” Shantz said. “They may be in the future, but not yet. “How do you find kids the appropriate level of competition and keep kids engaged in activities to keep them challenged? It’s all about getting the appropriate level of competition. It’s difficult.” One benefit should Crothers win medals at the provincial level is it earns a second OFSAA entry for York Region the following year.

Father's Day Wally Hunt June 18, 2010 I thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday, And days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, All I have is memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, With which I'll never part, God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart. Love Sandy
