Rain wreaks havoc in marsh SIMON MARTIN smartin@yrmg.com The torrential rains that have pelted down in June are putting crops in jeopardy in the Holland Marsh. The scene in the marsh is not pretty where pools of water saturate the dark muck making it impossible for farmers to do anything but frantically drain water until the next downpour comes. "There is absolutely going to be crop failures," King Ward 6 Coun. and farmer Avia Eek said. "Think about a bunch of mini kettle lakes in the marsh. That’s what it is like. " It’s much the same story from farmer Nick Weening. He looked out the back of window Friday

morning to see his field mostly underwater. "We dug ditches all day long to try and get the surface water of the fields," he said. Most of the crops that were underwater between 24 and 48 hours are most likely gone, Weening said. Bradford Mayor Rob Keffer and local agencies provided updates on the effects of the flooding in the area. While water levels in some areas had decreased, it was still swelling at dangerous levels in others because the water was still making its way through the watershed. With the huge amount of rain, many parts of Bradford were unl See HOLLAND, page 4

What the cluck? Town approves backyard hens TERESA LATCHFORD tlatchford@yrmg.com

Metroland file photo

Newmarket joins the growing number of municipalities that are allowing the keeping of egg-laying hens in residential backyards as long as rules and regulations are adhered to.

Newmarket council has hatched a plan allowing residents to keep chickens in the backyards. The amendment made to the animal control bylaw permits the keeping of chickens in residential areas in all wards. Regulations have been set and town staff are to review applications for the keeping of egg-laying hens and ensure compliance. "Urban agriculture is an important part of an urbanizing community and we are seeing the environmental and health benefits of backyard hens embraced by our residents," Mayor Tony Van Bynen said. "As society continues

backyards. Interested residents must submit an application to the town for approval. Regulations state no more than three hens can be kept per property, hens must be at least four months old and tenants must have permission from the property owner. Hens must be kept in their coop between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., must be kept in an enclosed run when not in the coop, enclosures must be at least 10 square feet per hen and runs and coops should be at least 1.2 metres from the rear and side lot lines. The town requires coops and runs be maintained and free of

to change and evolve, we will continue to respond to the needs of our community." Last year, council endorsed a 12-month pilot project in Ward 2 for up to five residential properties, which later expanded to include Ward 5. The project came after persistent Ward 2 resident Marc Mantha kept pecking at the issue, urging council to consider allowing it after three years of sitting on the fence. He had hoped at least 20 homes would participate in the pilot. During the pilot, one resident in Ward 2 and two in Ward 5 applied. Two residents proceeded, complied with regulations, and continue to keep hens in their

Nick Weening’s family farm occupies about 150 acres on the Holland Marsh. They have been working steadily to keep pumps running and spillways clear after a weekend of heavy rains.

Holland Marsh crops in jeopardy l Continued from front

derwater with localized flooding and fast-moving streams in lowlying areas. Upland areas were also affected, including the intersection of Line 5 and Sideroad 5, residential areas and many construction sites around town. The rain is even wreaking havoc on higher ground at Round the Bend Farm on Jane Street in Kettleby. Sue Feddema had time to talk as marble size hail started pelting down June 26. "We have been here 32 years. We have never had a year like this. We have never had this much rain." Feddema said they have seen 22 inches from May and June alone. "The rain makes it impossible to plant. Nothing is growing," she said. Feddema said they are lucky to have other forms of income on the farm like turkeys, school groups, and greenhouses that aren’t as affected by the weather. She feels sorry for the farmers whose livelihoods are dependent on their crops. Eek said the majority of the fields were still underwater. "It’s heartbreaking," she said. "There has just been too much rain." Eek said farmers spent the majority of the weekend draining excess water off of their fields. The water was so high that it was going up to her son’s knees he tried to drain the fields. "I feel bad," Eek said. "Farmers are a pretty resilient bunch, but it’s been rough." Feddema said at this point the best chance is to pray for divine intervention. "The joke is if it were much wetter we would build an ark and float." Bradford’s Stormwater Management/Drainage Superintendent Frank Jonkman advised on Sunday that the Art Janse Pumping Station on Pumphouse Road lost all power, presumably due to a lightning strike. Repairs were made where possible and portable generators were brought in. Three portable diesel pumps were also brought in. Pumphouse Road will be closed to through traffic until the end of the week, subject to weather conditions. Farmers say they won’t be surprised to hear of millions of dollars of lost crops because of the water.

Residents can keep chickens l Continued from front

odours. Permission from abutting property owners is also required. Roosters are banned and slaughter is prohibited. Newmarket isn’t the first to allow the keeping of hens as it joins others like Brampton, Guelph, Kingston, Niagara Falls and Waterloo. In Guelph, residents are allowed chickens, ducks, geese and pigeons. For more information, visit Newmarket.ca/urbanhens or call 905-895-5193.

DORITA PEER

Drawing parallels

LINDA LYONS got good enough, she stopped cleaning houses and began a career in banking. He, a musician, carried plaster and lumberjacked before getting his electrical journeyman papers and becoming a staunch union man. How they worked! My brother and I grew up footloose latchkey kids, strong and free, in the city and in the beloved north lands, where they also ran a holiday resort business. We had escaped in the dark, hidden away on a milk run to Austria. The Red Cross dropped us off in England, where my father was offered America, Australia or Canada as our final destination. "The country without military conscription," is what he answered. Emphatically. He had chosen for us the right to choose how we would live. My parents did not come to this great land dreaming of riches. They came to give us a true childhood, glorious and free. Their traumatic past left its mark, but not on us. Sweet dreams and a promising future, the caption reads - no greater gift can any child be given.

It was a Sunday. On March 17, 1957, when they took that photo for the Toronto Telegram I was worn out and fast asleep, so I missed all the hoopla. The doll hugging me is almost as big as me. She looks wide-eyed for both of us. New Canadians, the caption reads. The doll wore away, but my life just got bigger and better. They were children during the Great Depression, adolescents during the Second World War, and young parents when the Hungarian Uprising broke out. Theirs was no cake walk through life. You would hardly know it, growing up in our house. My parents made their lives’ aim to protect us from their past. To give us a lifetime of Sundays. They never called Hungary "The Old Country" or "The Motherland." From the moment they touched down, Canada became their home and native land. How they struggled to shed the past! Moving homes, almost every year. Buying not one, but three sets of encyclopedias. My father read the Sunday Telegram to my mother. When her English

I could see the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in the distance but I couldn’t cross the street to get there. Brave pedestrians joined the intricate eight lane ballet of cars and scooters, squealing brake and honking horns. Over the din I heard, "Hey Canada". A not-so-young man darted into the chaos and arrived at my side, slightly out of breath but grinning. "Maple Leaf," he said pointing to my travel bag. "Yes, yes," I nodded with relief. "My brother’s wife’s cousin lives in Canada. You must know him." "Canada’s a big country," I said. "What’s his name?" "His name is Dario but in Canada he is David, like the statue." He laughed and poked my Maple Leaf emblem. "Come, I show you how to cross, and you tell me about your country." After dusk, the sidewalks in Athens were busy with tables of men gesturing and arguing. Someone reached for my empty chair and spoke too fast for me to identify one word from my night school conversational Greek vocabulary. I pointed to my maple leaf and nod-

ded with my raised hands in the universal position for I-have-no-idea-what-youare-saying but go ahead and take the chair. "Canada! You going to our islands?" "Yes, next week." "Good. Very beautiful. My name Manos. I have farm, you stay there free. Canadians very good people." My luggage was lost and I was hungry. Searching for my hotel on dark, narrow streets along the canals, I stumbled into a deserted pancake house. A student server, intent on closing, was washing down long wooden tables and scowled in my direction. Suddenly, her face brightened and she pointed at the travel bag clutched in my arms. "Canada," she said in perfect English. "Please, sit. I’ll be right with you," and disappeared into the kitchen, returning with a plate of perfect pancakes and three pitchers of syrup. As I began to thank her for her kindness, she raised her hand in protest. "No, no, please. You are Canadian. All Holland thanks you. We will never forget."

and warm up with a hot beverage we stared at each other with blank faces as we didn’t know what the words on the menu meant. Here, I thought of my mom ordering something for me based on the pictures and being conscious of her pronunciation. As I took in the beauty of the falls, gusts of wind blew pieces of rocks and cold mist into my hair, I wished that I had brought a warmer jacket and imagined the thoughts that crossed my parents’ minds while crossing the streets carrying groceries and me through a windy snowy path. As I stood trying to capture an image of the falls on my phone, I noticed all the different directions one can choose to go. Some that require effort, some that require endurance and some that are just dangerous. In that moment I realized that my parents also had to choose safety over familiarity, warmth and comfort.

Johnston Canyon Waterfalls in Alberta or the yearly excursion to Niagara Falls in Ontario did not compare to my epiphany at Montmorency Falls in Quebec. This location was intriguing because the journey to and fro wasn’t seamless, rather it represented a jagged mosaic. Despite having Canadian university degrees, navigating my way around Quebec was challenging without knowing French. As I stared at the falls in awe, I started drawing parallels between my non-English speaking family’s transition as Canadians in the early ’90s. As I jotted notes down in English, I had a flashback of my mom jotting things down in Tamil so she can help me with my school projects. As I was going to turn right at a red light, my husband reminded me that in Quebec this was not allowed and I thought of all the unlearning of laws and norms that my parents had to do. Although I had a great time exploring the falls, routing was not a nonchalant task and I thought of how my dad had gotten lost on the TTC despite his brothers instructions. When we walked into a café to wake up

Marketing our growth corridors, planning our future This week we officially opened the Keith Bridge on Davis Drive and revealed a public artwork installation that tells the story of the history of transportation in Newmarket, dating back 10,000 years. This public art was made possible by the expansion of the Keith Bridge to accommodate the Viva Rapid Transit system. Both public art and an advanced transit system are key components of our transition toward urban place-making in our urban centres.

TONY VAN BYNEN Mayor’s Column Newmarket will continue to preserve existing neighbourhoods wherever possible by focusing our growth in identified urban corridors (Davis Drive and

Yonge Street). By concentrating the majority of our development in designated areas, it will protect the integrity of the town’s fabric. The majority of our growth in the coming years will be shaped by our Secondary Plan. This will be a critical time for our community as we continue to balance the character and suburban elements of our town with the increasing urban elements that will shape our corridors. The Secondary Plan sets out intensification targets that

will see 33,000 residents and 32,000 jobs in our corridors over the next 40 years. While the Secondary Plan has laid the framework for our vision, we know that we need to accelerate timelines for mid-tohigh-rise developments to

EDITORIAL | OPINION

• EDITORIAL •

Pride Parade a truly inclusive celebration This year’s York Region Pride Parade is truly something to be proud of. After several years in Richmond Hill, the annual celebration of inclusivity moved north and, for the first time, took place on Main Street in Newmarket. Parade organizers, participants and the community at large came together to create something special in the form of an event where everyone was welcome. Indeed, the entire event had a family-friendly feel and the good vibes culminated with a concert and party at Riverwalk Commons. Residents came out in droves to enjoy the fun and a number of local businesses also got into the spirit by decorating their storefronts and/or serving up unique, Pride-themed menu items. Even the police had a significant presence at the event with officers from York Regional Police, South Simcoe, Peel, Durham, the RCMP and the OPP in attendance. And while police in Toronto had been told they weren’t welcome at the city’s annual Pride festivities this year, at least not in uniform anyway, police at York’s parade received cheers and applause as they marched their way down Main. "York Regional Police has been amazing; they’ve been with us 110 per cent," said parade organizer Jacob Gal, adding it’s very different in York compared to Toronto, with its longer history of "intense and complex" interactions. The parade had previously taken place along Yonge Street in Richmond Hill but relocated this year due to issues associated with closing the busy regional thoroughfare. Newmarket’s Main Street, which is not a vital artery for traffic, proved to be an ideal alternative venue. "This is not a competition," Gal went on to say. "What is important here is this is a chance to see what it’s like when the entire community works together. When there’s teamwork, suddenly a lot happens." He’s absolutely right. All of that co-operation resulted in a celebration in which anyone could take part and feel welcome and, when you get right down to it, that’s what any community event should really aspire to achieve. With so many forces in the world seemingly trying to divide us, it’s wonderful to have something like Pride that endeavours to bring us together. Kudos again to the organizers and here’s hoping future events continue to incorporate that unifying spirit.

• SAYING IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA •

A roundup of reaction online The story: OPP lays 127 speeding charges during transport truck safety blitz I do a circle check every morning and can tell you exactly what condition my brakes are in, every light bulb, anything loose or unsecured. Exact condition of all my tires. Complete and comprehensive check. I can guarantee that more than 90% of passenger drivers don’t do this once. Michael Greig Did this daily for 30 years never ever worried about being inspected and never got a ticket But Iam one of the few that would do this .Its scary to be in a truck stop and watch guys climb out of bunks and drive down the road .Its my life at risk so I made sure my vehicles were in safe condition it was also anazing how many drivers always ask what the chicken coop is doing down the road, I used to tell them run legal and have no worries oh and yes the chicken houses do have cbs so they know who to look for. But like you said I guaranty most car drivers cant even find the dipstick to check oil nevermind check air pressures or brakes Brent Desormo

The story: Transportation minister Del Duca gave ’input’ on controversial Kirby GO station Another shameful waste, just to win an election. Guess there’s no gas plants to cancel so they have to do something to bribe voters! Chris Gerow The Ontario Liberals are as corrupt as they come and Del Duca is near the top of the list! Chris Boswell

The story: Ribfest right for Thornhill community? Went today... Had a great time. Again, a great location. Great diverse crowd. Lots of parking but looks like the majority of people are locals who walked. You asked if Ribfest is right for this Thornhill Community? I say yes! People of Thornhill are too special to be limited to politician bbqs.... Alden Cudanin

How to talk about body image

Punishments should be meted out fairly for all Re: LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Save lives and generate revenue, June 8. Love reading your paper’s opinion section. It challenges a person’s mind to understand why people form the opinions they hold and to then question your own. The letter "Save lives and generate income" June 8 is one such letter. Normally I would agree that raising fines for parking/traffic violations would be a deterrent if it had the same effect on everyone equally. Realistically, someone earning $200,000-plus will not be affected in the same way as those earning $40,000. In this way our fine system metes out justice unequally. Finland has a system where fines are based on a percentage of income. A genius idea as a true deterrent. It is not unheard of for someone to get a $130,000 speeding ticket. How’s that for revenue! Imagine if John Tory used that to deal with Toronto’s many parking infractions. Delivery trucks blocking lanes would be a thing of the past. While no system is perfect, I fail to understand why this has not caught on in other countries. The letter writer is right when he states the police have more important work then traffic enforcement. How many countless hours are spent in court as police wait to verify facts already stated on the ticket, only to have Ex-Coppers fight to reduce points or fines that the judge will reduce anyways. Our courts are clogged with the endless pursuit of evading punishment where, with the right lawyer, you can avoid a DUI. What is bothersome in this letter, and society as a whole, is the passive almost non-existent call to enforce pedestrian infractions. Making a right hand turn onto University from Richmond in Toronto is a marvel of human triumph. A driver must contend with a herd of people crossing against a red while navigating the bike lane traffic whizzing up from behind. It is truly a wonder there are not more accidents. Safety is a two-way street, and punishment as a deterrent should be applied fairly between driver and pedestrian, rich and poor. Karin Hamalainen Newmarket

Protecting planet for next generation important Re: LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Assertions in en-

• LETTERS • l MORE ONLINE Read all our published letters at yorkregion.com vironmental article questionable, June 4. I would like to respond to Lee Eustace’s comments on global warming/climate change. It seems that in his effort to refute its existence, he doesn’t like the idea that we should do our best to look after our planet. It takes effort to "do the right thing" and try to eliminate as much waste as possible, as we live our lives. It’s stunning to me how many people, just can’t be bothered and those are the ones who usually go out of their way, to contradict that climate change is real. It’s all a selfish matter of convenience and comfort, for us, and what about the next generations? Doesn’t take much in the way of intelligence, to know that living with huge amounts of garbage (whether in the air, water or on the land), is damaging to us all and can only "comfortably" continue for so long. That is the real issue and if Lee doesn’t believe that is a problem, perhaps he should simply keep all the waste he produces and try to live with it. Mary-Anne Draffin Newmarket

A tribute to Canada’s 150th anniversary

May 19, I met with some friends at the Second Cup on Markham Main Street North. We enjoyed our usual mocha and chatted for an hour or two. On arrival I slung my shoulder bag over the back of my chair and took off my coat and placed it also over the back of the chair. However, after our gettogether I put on my coat and walked out leaving my shoulder bag behind with all my valuables in the bag. I didn’t think of it until the next morning my wife and I decided to go to the farmers market on Main Street Markham, I went to get my wallet which was in my shoulder bag, and yes, that’s when it dawned on me. In full panic mode we raced over to the café and waited in line to be served, which was only five minutes but if felt like hours. I asked the young woman behind the counter if anyone handed in a black man’s shoulder bag left behind yesterday. She said "Is it this?" "Yes, OMG," I said, "Yes." it was handed in by some honest individual, whom I will never know and unable to thank personally. You have only to experience this once to realize the relief you feel, the feeling cannot be described.

I have composed/compiled a tribute to Canada’s 150th anniversary. I have exposed it to some of my friends, and some suggested it may be something that might make interesting copy for the paper, so here it is: CANADA, 150 YEARS One hundred fifty years ago, our country came to be, A land where folks came from afar, to settle and to prosper, Though some unpleasant times were had, and faced along the way, Our people came together, and became, the land we are today. We thank the Huron-Iroquois for lending us their name, Kanata what they called their home, where everyone roamed free, Kanata, now our Canada, a fitting name for us to share, From sea to sea to sea. O Canada, our Canada, we welcome all to see. From mountains west, through central plains, to east diversity, With love for all, disdain for few, to this we all agree. O Canada, our Canada, no place I’d rather be. We share one God with all the world, with efforts to bring peace to all, Accepting those whose views are not as inclusive as ours, Compassion, generosity, for everyone we feel. Defending rights and privileges, bestowed upon us all, It makes no sense to build a fence to peace and understanding, and find armed might not always right, a rose more welcome than a thorn, Fulfil your needs, avoid the greed, so common in our world today. So shout out loud and make us proud, of where and who we are, O Canada, our Canada, a true land of the free, O Canada, our Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Thank you for your time.

Honesty still exists among some people

Show your child how to be the most “beautiful you” and be a role model for positive body image. social worker at Southlake Regional Health Centre’s child and adolescent eating disorders program: · It’s very important to start these conversations with your children at an early age. · Be kind to yourself. Negative self-talk can be heard by young ears. · Our world is full of mixed messages about the ideal body. Check in with your kids and teens about what they are seeing and hearing. · Listening to them means opening your eyes as well as your ears. How children and teens dress can speak volumes about how they are feeling. · It’s their body to dress, not yours. Let them be comfortable and confident. · If you notice your teen wearing an unusual number of added layers, this could be a sign that they are covering up more than their body. Ask them questions and talk about their feelings. · Comment on style, not shape. i.e. "I like the way you put that outfit together." · Monkey see, monkey do. Show your child how to be the most "beautiful you" and be a role model for positive body image. · Do away with weight, shape and size talk. Instead, talk about sunglasses, pool parties and good times with their friends. Caitlin Shipley is a social worker at Southlake Regional Health Centre’s child and adolescent eating disorders program.

I thank you The Second Cup for your lost-andfound policy, I thank the young woman behind the counter and especially the person who picked up the bag and handed it in; all my belongings were in the bag untouched. Thank you so very much. I thank God for the honesty that still exists among people. E. Adams Markham

Everyone wants to fit in, to have a good time and feel comfortable in their own skin. Warmer temperatures can sometimes increase the pressure for young people to feel like they need to look a certain way. Being surrounded by images of the ideal bodies may make young people feel anxious about their own - especially during the summer months. So how do we take steps to support our kids and encourage them not to compare themselves to others, and to let them know that they shouldn’t be comparing themselves to movie stars, models and athletes? In extreme cases, negative body image can lead to eating disorders for both males and females. In the past year at Southlake, we had 4,231patient visits to our child and adolescent eating disorder program and another 462 visits to our young adult eating disorder program. We know how important it is to check in with your kids, to talk to them about what they’re seeing and hearing, and how to open up the lines of communication about the risks they could be taking to try and achieve what they think is the perfect body. So here are few tips about the best ways to get these conversations started from Caitlin Shipley,

A cleaner, healthier Lake Simcoe watershed At the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation, we envision a cleaner, healthier Lake Simcoe watershed that will inspire, motivate and enrich us all. An unhealthy ecosystem can have devastating effects on our personal health and the health of our communities. By raising money to support tree planting, river and stream restoration projects, environmental education and more, we are able to contribute to a healthier local environment. The Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation raises money to support targeted environmental projects carried out by LSRCA. By supporting the Conservation Authority and their work, we’re helping to safeguard nature and our own wellbeing.

The 29th Conservation Dinner which was held on June 7th at The Manor was a resounding success! THANK YOU to all our sponsors, attendees and volunteers! Here’s what some of the Conservation Dinner sponsors are saying: “As a real estate development company that is active in the Lake Simcoe watershed we feel it is paramount that we support the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation and all of the good work they do to support the environment. By supporting the Conservation Dinner, we feel that we can bring a higher level of environmentalism to our projects to help us achieve our goal of building sustainable communities for now and the future.” - Darren Steedman, DG Group

“Our core philosophy is to create attractive, livable, environmentally sustainable places to live, while supporting the efforts of organizations like the foundation and its objective to improve, restore, protect Lake Simcoe’s watershed, create public awareness and educate watershed residents. We thank and congratulate the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation for its exemplary work and contributions to the health of the watershed.” - Cheryl Shindruk and Shauna Dudding, Geranium Corporation

yorkregion.com FINDING HIS EDGE: Imagine this: you can’t see and you can’t hear, and you have been this way since birth. How do you survive, connect with others, find pleasure and purpose in life? Meet Peter, a 47-yearold deaf-blind rock-climber, who shows us how.

Testosterone declining? BY BRAD KING, M.S., MFS

- Testosterone levels in men begin to

diminish around age 30. In fact, by the time men are 60 years old, they typically produce 60% less testosterone than they did at age 20 (a man’s sexual peak). As testosterone levels decline, men tend to notice a loss in muscle mass and strength, and a gain in body fat—especially in the abdominal region (the old “beer belly syndrome”). Abdominal fat also happens to be the most dangerous place to store fat due to its proximity to your vital organs. Conversely, as testosterone levels rise, lean body mass increases and obesity decreases. Thankfully, hormonal fidelity can be repaired through a program of proper diet, exercise and naturally proven nutrient supplementation. Ultimate Male Energy™ incorporates natural ingredients like: Chrysin, Stinging Nettle Root Extract, Indole-3Carbinol and Broccoli Sprout Powder to help restore healthy hormone biochemistry and reduce the symptoms of declining testosterone levels.

New citizen ’super proud’ to be Canadian TIM KELLY tkelly@yrmg.com The friends and family of 52 brand new Canadians from all parts of the globe joined in celebrating their swearing-in ceremony at Rouge National Urban Park in Markham Tuesday morning. David Phillips, senior climatologist for Environment Canada and Member of the Order of Canada, led the ceremonies and told the new Canadians to "think proudly about what you have achieved in the past and look eagerly to the future." Phillips was joined in welcoming the new Canadi-

ans by Markham-Stouffville MP and Health Minister Jane Philpott, Oak Ridges-Markham MPP and Minister of Community and Social Services Helena Jaczek, as well Rouge National Urban Park Superintendent Pam Veinotte and park volunteer Sumaira Munir. Phillips said, "very few of us share the same past but all of us can share the same future." Flavia Torres, who lives in Richmond Hill but is moving soon to Newmarket, was one of those who became a new Canadian citizen Tuesday.

Sabeen, who wants to work in the health-care field, said she "loves the snow here," as opposed to Qatar, where it’s "hot and humid." Munir gave a moving speech where she touched on her own 10 years as a Ca-

nadian citizen. She said, "we are all Canadians. Just like a spectrum of various colours of light develops into pure white light, you, me, we, all make this country the Great White North." Munir added she could express her roots as a new Canadian where she wore a "traditional shalwar quameez and rocked a heavy jacket, mittens and ear muffs with it, when I am equally inclined towards biryani and barbecue, curry and poutine, kheer and butter tarts, Rooh Afza and maple syrup, and when I speak English in an Urdu/ Punjabi accent, I’m never frowned at."

New Slessor Square development proposal unveiled TERESA LATCHFORD tlatchford@yrmg.com Redwood Properties has unveiled its three-tower development proposal for the former Slessor Square property. The developer hosted the first of two public information open houses at the Newmarket Senior’s Meeting Place on June 27 to allow residents to view its plan for 17645 Yonge St. The public viewed display boards, miniature 3D models and spoke to experts about the planned development. "It looks good," Millard resident Lloyd Robertson said. "Adding the extra street might help to spread the traffic out a little more." This will be the second develop-

On June 27 the Redwood Properties development team invited the public to an information session regarding the property at 17645 Yonge Street (formerly Slessor Square). A development proposal has been made to the town of Newmarket to modify the approved zoning. ment proposal for the Newmarket property and this proposal enhances the former approved site plan, according to Redwood archi-

tect Richard Aubry. Instead of the original four-building design, the new design includes three towers; 21, 19 and 17 storeys.

While the density, 3.5 F.S.I., at street level retail space and many urban design principals will remain from the original development, there are a number of differences in the new proposal, he added. The number of suites is dropping from 821 to 530 units, parking spaces will go from 1,117 to 866, 80 visitor parking spaces will be added and retail parking will drop from 332 to 116 spaces. Instead of underground parking, a parking structure with a roof garden will be built and surrounded by town houses to disguise it and the signalized entrance to the Upper Canada Mall will be relocated to align with a new street on the south side of the property.

mitigate traffic issues, the six-metre buffer between the buildings and Yonge Street will provide safe passage for pedestrians and open space through the property will allow the public to travel through on foot. "We wanted to create a place where people want to live," Aubry said. Common space for residents include large green terraces, a pool and playground, which will help alleviate stress on town amenities. Redwood will launch its website, redwoodonyonge.ca, with the full details on June 28. A second open house will be held in the fall preceding a statutory meeting to be held in council chambers as part of the planning process.

Nothing to squawk at The club started in 1999 with a group of parrot enthusiasts meeting at someone’s home and grew to become the Newmarket Parrot Club. In 2006 the name changed to the York Region Parrot Club to address the growing area that the membership was coming from. The club meets on the third Tuesday of the month from September to June at the Richmond Hill (Branch 375) Royal Canadian Legion, located at 233 Centre St. E. at 7 p.m. The club has 35 members, some of those being family memberships. Guests are always welcome to visit the meeting for $5, but no non-member birds are allowed. The club participates in outreach programs at seniors’ residences and attends special events for donations to the club. For more information and many pictures of our monthly meetings, see our website at yorkregionparrotclub.ca. Above, Steve Kuehl with Chase, a painted conure (bottom), and Maxine, a green quaker. Conures are native to South America and also found in Panama in Central America in dense forests. Painted conures have lots of energy and love to play. These parrots live up to 20 or more years. Green quakers are becoming more popular as pets. They are known for their fun-loving, comical personalities and their energetic, spunky nature. They can live up to 30 years. (Above right) Lucy Kupnicki lends her shoulders to Yar, an Alexandrian parrot, and Bandit, an African grey. Alexandrians are known as the "gentle birds with large beaks". They live up to 30 years and are playful, energetic and independent. (Right) Mickey is a Hahn’s macaw owned by John Ryan. This parrot is the smallest macaw and is native to South America. These birds are playful, active, social and make great pets. These birds are reported to live for more than 40 to 50 years if cared for properly.

EDUCATION

ON NOW AT THE BRICK!

Public input wanted on hiring of new education director TERESA LATCHFORD tlatchford@yrmg.com

SAVING YOU MORE For more details go instore or online @thebrick.com.

The York Region District School Board is seeking your feedback on the selection process and evaluation of its education director. Two policies outlining this process have been developed in response to the Ontario Education Minister’s 22 directions to the board, which came after ministry directed review. The draft policies were penned by a committee made up of trustees, staff

and community members. "These policies will guide the process for selecting and evaluating our next director of education and we encourage school communities to share their input," board chair Loralea Carruthers said. "I want to thank the committee for their efforts and valuable input in developing these important policies." The trustees are responsible for hiring and monitoring the performance of the education director, whose main role is to oversee the

day-to-day operations of the YRDSB. The education director position became vacant when a scathing report from ministry appointed reviewers on the conduct of then education director J. Philip Parappally prompted trustees to call for his resignation. In April, the board announced his dismissal. Those wishing to provide feedback or ask questions about the two draft policies at yrdsb.ca can direct them to policy.committee@yrdsb.ca.

Notice of Commencement and Public Meetings GO Rail Network Electrification Transit Project Assessment Process Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is upgrading its commuter rail system into Regional Express Rail. The Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is now home to nearly 7 million people and heading towards 10 million by 2041. To address the urgent transit needs of the GTHA, the Province of Ontario committed to implement Regional Express Rail and make other improvements to the GO system. By 2025, electrified trains will be running every 15 minutes or better, all day and in both directions, within the most heavily travelled sections of the GO network. The Process Metrolinx and Hydro One are co-proponents, jointly carrying out the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) in accordance with Ontario Regulation 231/08 - Transit Projects and Metrolinx Undertakings (made under the Environmental Assessment Act) to examine the environmental impacts of converting several GO rail corridors from diesel to electric propulsion. The Project As part of Regional Express Rail, Metrolinx is proposing to electrify GO-owned corridors. The GO Rail Network Electrification undertaking will entail design and implementation of a traction power supply system and power distribution components located along and within the vicinity of the rail corridors. The Study Area (see key map) includes six GO rail corridors, as well as proposed locations for the traction power facilities (i.e., Traction Power Substations, Paralleling Stations, Switching Stations) and ancillary components: • • • • • •

Union Station Rail Corridor Lakeshore West Corridor – West of Bathurst St. to Burlington Kitchener Corridor – UP Express Spur (at Highway 427) to Bramalea Barrie Corridor – Parkdale Junction to Allandale GO Station Stouffville Corridor – Scarborough Junction to Lincolnville GO Station Lakeshore East Corridor – Don River Layover to Oshawa GO Station

Traction Power Supply and Distribution System Electrification of the GO Network requires a connection to the provincial electrical system. It is proposed that power be supplied from Hydro One’s existing 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission lines through the installation of five (5) Tap locations which will bring power to the Traction Power Substations (TPS) and then feed into the power distribution system components adjacent to and along the rail corridors to be electrified. Consultation Building on the first and second rounds of public consultation meetings held in February/March 2016 and November 2016, Metrolinx and Hydro One are now formally commencing the TPAP. A third round of public consultation is planned for June/July 2017 (details below) and will present the findings of the technical/environmental studies (posted online at www.gotransit. com/electrification) undertaken for the GO Rail Network Electrification Project. Members of the public, government agencies, Indigenous communities and other interested parties are encouraged to participate in the process and/or contact the project team directly with feedback or questions. A discussion guide will be posted online at www.gotransit.com/electrification prior to the meetings to provide key information. We invite you to join us in person at the public meeting nearest you to find out more.

Sarah Chan My orthotics help with the pain from my collapsed arches but my ankles are still sore from rolling inwards.

Dr. Richard Lee-Shanok

Wes Playter

I would like to change the shape of my teeth. What options are available?

What is involved in a “guaranteed pre-paid” funeral?

Collapsing arches can often cause the ankles to roll inwards leading to ankle fatigue and pain. By supporting the foot and preventing arch collapse, custom foot orthotics can often help prevent ankle drop and pain. However, there are cases where the ankle is weak or very flexible and it needs more support than an orthotic can provide. An ankle foot orthotic (AFO) may be helpful in these cases as it combines a custom foot orthotic with an ankle brace, providing optimal ankle and foot support. An ankle foot orthotic (AFO) is often covered by extended health insurance and has the durability to last many years.

The best approach is to have an air conditioning performance test done to your vehicle. This test allows us to check the pressure in your air conditioning system. With this test, we put in an additive that is activated by ultra violet light which allows us to trace it through your A/C system which in turn will show us if there are any leaks or possibly if one of the parts in your A/C system is no longer working. We can diagnose & repair A/C systems on most foreign & domestic vehicles. With A/C systems it is hard to say what is malfunctioning or leaking until the performance test is done. It could be anything from having your A/C compressor replaced to having your air conditioning system evacuated & recharged with refrigerant. The A/C performance test generally takes about 1/2 hour to 45 mins. & is well worth it in the summer heat we’ll be having! Book your appointment today.

Is there anything on the market to help with my allergies? Yes. First of all it is important to determine what the “triggers” are. Keeping a diary of when and where you experience your symptoms can be helpful. Are the triggers biological or chemical? It is always recommended that you eliminate the triggers where possible; this can mean not using air fresheners, and scented candles and cleaning products. Adding an air cleaner to your central system that traps triggering particles may help. There are several types available depending on the severity of the symptoms. Some models are stand alone and can be used in individual rooms. Turning the thermostat fan switch to “on” instead of “auto” will draw the air through the cleaner is a healthier option. Make sure that your furnace filter or media is changed according to manufacturer’s recommendation.

There are different options available to change the shape of teeth. Teeth can be made to look longer, spaces can be closed and cracks/chips can be repaired. The options are bonding, crowns, veneers, and recontouring. • Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the tooth and hardened to become seamless with the natural tooth. • Crowns are caps that are placed over teeth. The crowns fully cover the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line. • Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front surface of teeth. • Recontouring is a procedure in which small amounts of tooth enamel are removed to change a tooth’s length or shape. Each of these options differ with regard to cost, durability, “chair time” necessary to complete the procedure, stain resistant qualities. It is best to have a dental visit to determine which is the best option for you.

Demerit points are assessed by the Ministry of Transportation and they go on your record for 2 years. You can obtain your driving record from your local MTO office. It is important to know your options…I always recommend that you take advantage of my FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. When you want Professional Representation on traffic matters, call...

DryerVent Cleaning, Repair, Installation Tyler Johnson

How do I prevent a dryer fire? There is a reported dryer fire on average every 2 days in Ontario. All dryer fires are preventable. The warning signs that your dryer needs maintenance are; Clothes take longer than a regular cycle to dry, there is a build up of lint in and around the back of the dryer, there is little to no lint on the lint screen, the dryer gets very hot to the touch, the laundry room gets very humid when the dryer is running, there is plastic or metal foil venting behind your dryer, the outside vent has a build up of lint on it. If you are experiencing any of these issues, you are at risk of a dryer fire and are likely wasting energy. Dryer Vent Wizard specialist cleans, installs, repairs and alter vents. We also de-lint the inside of most dryer models. A clean, properly installed dryer vent can also help decrease energy costs by $18 to $24 per month while giving you peace of mind.

When somebody pre-pays funeral services – either for themselves or a loved one – the services/merchandise desired are paid for and the funds invested. Regardless of when the beneficiary passes away, the services/ merchandise are guaranteed as per the original contract. This protects families from inflation and can provide peace of mind by ensuring final wishes are documented without the risk of financial hardship on survivors.

The rustic look of restoration wood dominates the selection process in laminate flooring. Some of these patterns are so realistic, you would swear they were actual barn wood. You certainly do not get this degree of beauty in cheap, bargain laminates. The better grade laminates continue to improve and excel in terms of indentation resistance, moisture resistance, durability, and ease of maintenance.

SPORTS

St. Andrew’s hockey shines in the NHL draft spotlight Hat trick. In hockey parlance, that aptly describes the weekend performance for the St. Andrew’s College hockey program. Three players with connections to the Aurorabased prep school selected during the NHL draft held in Chicago’s United Center Friday and Saturday makes the hockey community sit up and take notice. Led by former student Robert Thomas’s selection in the first round by the St. Louis Blues, the Saints’ program also saw Morgan Barron and Ryan O’Connell chosen by the New York Rangers and Toronto

JOHN CUDMORE Cuddy Shark Maple Leafs in the sixth and seventh rounds, respectively. Both played for St. Andrew’s varsity Saints squad last season. "We had three boys on the (NHL Central Scouting) list, actually," said Saints head coach David Man-

ning. "All are very different players and you hope all three will go somewhere, but you go in with the idea none might go, too." Thomas attended the school until he left for the OHL’s London Knights after Grade 10 as a secondround pick. Princeton-commit Corey Andonovski was overlooked but is likely to receive a development camp invite in the near future. "I think it validates what we are doing," said Manning. "Any time the top world in the league is watching your players and likes what we’re doing is a good thing."

Azzurri women stop Aurora FC streak at three wins JOHN CUDMORE jcudmore@yrmg.com Goals from Colleen Beesley and Anna Kowalczyk powered Vaughan Azzurri to a 2-1 victory over hosting Aurora FC in League1 Ontario women’s soccer action Saturday at Highland Park in Aurora. Azzurri improved its record to 5-1-1 with the victory, using a goal in each half to snap Aurora’s threegame winning streak. Aurora fell to 3-4 with the loss. The win pulled Vaughan to within two points of the league lead behind Unionville Milliken. Elsewhere, Woodbridge Strikers received two-goal performances from Nicole Kozlova and Jessica Lisi to claim a 5-0 home-field victory over Darby FC at

Vaughan Grove. Lauren Raimondo also scored for the Strikers, now 4-4-1 for the season. In a match played Friday, FC London handed Unionville Milliken a 3-0 setback for its first loss of the season in seven decisions. Men’s Jarek Whiteman scored two goals as Colm Vance

was flawless in nets as Vaughan Azzurri blanked Windsor TFC Stars 3-0 in a match played Sunday afternoon at McNaughton Park. The victory improved Vaughan’s record to 6-1-1 and helped Azzurri to climb to within three points of the East Division-leading Woodbridge Strikers. Woodbridge battled FC London to a 1-1 draw in a Sunday night match at Vaughan Grove. After spotting Windsor a 1-0 lead at halftime, Woodbridge evened the score at 1-1 on a goal by Dylan Correiro in the 54th minute. In a Friday night match, North Mississauga SC blanked Aurora FC 1-0 on a first-half goal from Andi Montina. Aurora fell to 1-7-1 with the setback.

The annual MacPherson Tournament hosted by SAC in January attracts scouts from collegiate and pro levels. The Saints travel extensively to U.S. hockey hotbeds, essentially taking their players to the scouts. "The fact we travel is a plus for us," said Manning, whose team blends an independent schedule with play in the Conference of Independent Secondary Schools Association. "Rather than just Ontario scouts seeing us, we are in Massachusetts or elsewhere and scouts are seeing us. If you have quality players they will find you."

The selections are the first for SAC since Warren Foegele was chosen in the third round of the 2014 draft by the Carolina Hurricanes. Last season, the Saints had at least a dozen CHL picks in their roster. You won’t find a Jr. A team anywhere with those numbers. Message: It is worth a trip to the SAC campus one day next season to check out this Saints program. Why wait for the future - it’s on our doorstep right now. Aces all over again What’s a hole-in-one shared between friends? When Larry Bone

scored his first hole-in-one earlier this month, it was a moment baseball legend/ philosopher Yogi Berra might describe as déjà vu all over again. Playing in a tournament at Bradford Highlands Golf Club on June 19, Bone aced the par-3, 137-yard eighth hole with buddy Al Giles riding along as his cart partner. Ironically, Bone was in the group four years ago when Giles knocked down a hole-in-one in Florida. "I think he was more excited than me," quipped Bone, a lifelong Newmarket resident.

AURORA-KING JAYS RALLY TO GLOVE BOLTON TOURNAMENT TITLE Jackson Gosselin singled over a drawn-in infield with the bases loaded to lift the Aurora-King Jays to cap a remarkable comeback for a 10-9 extra-inning victory over Mississauga Twins in the championship game of a minor bantam baseball tournament in Bolton. The Jays rallied from a 9-5 deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning with a four-run rally highlighted by a two-run double from Nick Giorgio with two out. After winning three of four games to claim top spot in their round-robin pool, the Jays stopped Orillia 6-4 in semifinal play to qualify for the title game. STINGRAYS’ MURACK MAKES SPLASH IN 100 BACKSTROKE Geoffrey Murack of the Newmarket Stingrays claimed one title and was runnerup in another event at the 2017 Ontario Summer Festival Swim Meet held over the weekend at the Markham Pan Am Pool. Competing in the 13year-old age group for boys, Murack won the 100metre backstroke event in a time of one minute and 3.56 seconds. He also collected a silver medal in the 50 freestyle. In all, 17 members of the Newmarket-based club competed at the event which represents provincial championships for swimmers aged 14 years and under. John Cudmore

BINSTOCK, NUSBAUM TEAM UP FOR BRONZE MEDAL IN JAMAICA York Region residents Josh Binstock (Richmond Hill) and Aaron Nusbaum (Aurora) kicked up a little sand on the weekend in Jamaica. The duo combined to defeat Costa Rica’s Bryan Monge and Richard Smith in straight sets (21-12, 21-14) to claim a bronze medal in the third stop of the NORCECA Continental Tour beach volleyball circuit June 25 in Ocho Rios. Binstock, a two-time Canadian Olympian, was pinch-hitting for Nusbaum’s regular partner, Ryan Vandenburg. The pair swept three round-robin matches but were relegated to the bronze medal game following a three-set semifinal loss to Americans Miles Evans and William Kolinske. The tandem is slated to compete at the Maccabi Games in Israel starting July 9.
