“You are blocked from following @PaulCalandra and viewing @PaulCalandra’s Tweets. Learn more.” If you’ve received this message from the Oak Ridges-Markham MP, you are not alone. Comedian Mark Critch found out he was blocked by the Conservative MP, who is running for re-election in the newly re-aligned riding of Markham-Stouffville, after he commented on CBC’s Rosemary Barton’s Twitter feed Aug. 12 after Calandra appeared on a panel she hosted. “@RosieBarton did a fantastic job keeping @PaulCalandra honest today. What a slippery tool.” Within 20 minutes, Critch tweeted he was now blocked by Calandra and couldn’t wait for 22 Minutes to start back up. Critch is an anchor and roving reporter for the sketch comedy show. Critch then decided to launch a Twitter campaign. Tweet at @PaulCalandra “you are a tool” and he will donate $1, up to a maximum of $1,500 to Newfoundland and Labrador’s Planned Parenthood program.

Ambassador proud to rep fair at CNE BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

The winner receives a crown and a sash, but don’t confuse the Ambassador of the Fairs competition with a beauty pageant. The annual competition held during the CNE shines a spotlight on the importance of agriculture and the young ambassadors who are proud to uphold the traditions of rural life and farming in Ontario, according to Maral Chouljian, spokesperson for the competition. Representing Whitchurch-Stouffville and Markham this year is Cassie Ferguson. Ferguson, 18, was crowned Markham Fair Ambassador last October. The Stouffville resident wanted to compete in the ambassador competition after watching her friend, Kaitlyn Francis, win the title in 2013. Ferguson did not have to participate in a bathing suit competition or talent show in order to earn her title. Instead, the competition was based on questions about the Markham Fair, provincial and community issues, agriculture and hobbies/interests/ community involvement/goals, according to the fair’s website. “Someone who is genuine, who wants to help improve the fair,” Ferguson said of the role. This year’s CNE Ambassador of the Fairs competition takes place this weekend.

CASSIE FERGUSON There are 78 ambassadors, three of whom are male and they represent 75 communities across Ontario, according to Chouljian. The winner travels around the province promoting and educating the public on Canadian agriculture and receives $3,500, according to Chouljian. The top seven contestants receive prizes ranging from $100 to $500. There is also a congeniality award, but it does not have a prize. “I’m real and realistic about going into it. I don’t expect to win everything,” Ferguson said, adding, the competition for her is about the experience and making friends. The same can’t be said about Ferguson when it comes to plow matches. “… I’m pretty good, not to be cocky,” the Durham College sports management student said. Through York 4-H, Ferguson has been

competing in plow matches since she was about 13 years old. She typically finishes in the top three. Ferguson didn’t get her start competing by plowing her family’s fields. They don’t live on a farm. They do have a tractor, but keep it in the garage. The only time she practises is when she competes. In her first international plow match competition last fall, Ferguson came in first place in her class – junior tractor plowing, mounted. She was the only female in her group of eight competitors. Ferguson earned 131 of a total 140 points. “It wasn’t perfect but it was pretty high up there,” she said. “It was pretty cool. I had a feeling the whole day I was going to do well,” she said of the win. Her dad, Ken, has won three Canadian championships, six Ontario titles and has been the runner-up in the worlds four times. He now judges and coaches his daughter. But at the International Plowing Match held in Ivy last year, he had to forego his coaching duties as he was judging. Her uncle Jim, Ken’s brother, stepped in. She calls her success “a Ferguson thing.” While plowing will only ever be a hobby for Ferguson, she does hope to compete for the whole week at an International Plowing Match, as well as go to the worlds.

The Sun-Tribune asked Calandra last Thursday for comment on why he blocks people on Twitter and his thoughts on Critch’s “you are a tool” campaign. Calandra stated via e-mail Friday: “We are into an important campaign and Canadians have a real choice to make in October. I am busy knocking on doors and talking about our plan to create jobs here in Markham-Stouffville and protect Canadians both at home and abroad.” Despite attempts for further comment on the issue, Calandra did not respond prior to our deadline. He did appear on the CBC panel show again Friday. Other people blocked by Calandra on Twitter include parliamentary press gallery reporters Alex Boutilier, Lee Berthiaume, along with TheTyee.ca reporter Jeremy Nuttall – and Stouffville Sun-Tribune/ yorkregion.com editor-columnist Jim Mason. Calandra, a Stouffville resident, blocked Mason in 2014. Calandra called Mason Friday to apologize for blocking him. He called it an error and unblocked him. Calandra also explained his parameters for blocking people on Twitter, which include people who don’t use their own names as their handles, those who make disparaging remarks about his family and those who use profanity. His Twitter account – @paulcalandra – has more than 5,000 followers. Calandra joined Twitter in 2009. Critch did not respond to The Sun-Tribune’s request for an interview prior to our deadline.

A Special Olympics Ontario soccer tournament and PAHL festival takes place at the Bethesda Sports Fields Aug. 29. The purpose of the two events is to see if there is interest in starting a Special Olympics soccer team in Whitchurch-Stouffville, according to Stephanie Panousis, a summer student with Special Olympics Ontario. The soccer tournament, which runs from noon to 6 p.m., features teams from the GTA. The PAHL festival is for children aged 12 and under and takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. Both events are free.

Soccer, bocce, track The festival has a number of mini activity stations, including soccer, basketball, bocce, as well as track and field. There is also the Special Olympics Ontario program Step Into Action, which is a pedometer initiative. “Hopefully, it will promote them to be active for life,” Panousis said of the PAHL festival. PAHL stands for physical activity and healthy living. “It’s nothing competitive, just fun and to see if we can start anything in the community,” she said.

LETTER OF THE WEEK

What if SkyDome really had been built in Ringwood?

Things are looking up with return of toboggan hill

I

t was far from their best work, but for whatever reason, the skit from the golden era of Saturday Night Live has stuck with me like glue. Cast members used wishful thinking, asking out loud “What if?” As in “What if Napoleon Bonaparte had a B-52 bomber during the Battle of Waterloo?” Hey, I can play that game, too, Bill Murray. Just watch. It all hit home during the past week, with those Blue Jays packing them in at SkyDome — sorry, I can’t say Rogers Centre — like it was 1992 again and the tennis crowd making its annual trek to York University to see the world’s best at what some call Aviva Centre, the former Rexall Centre. Because once upon a time there were plans to put both of those sporting stadia right here in Whitchurch-Stouffville. Trust me. How serious were those proposals, only the proponents and the eventual decision makers really know. And as much as I’d like to walk to the stadium and see Josh Donaldson do his thing, it seems pretty wacked to picture a Major League Baseball stadium at the southwest corner of Stouffville Road and Hwy. 48, behind the derelict gas station where Frank Stronach was growing feed for his race horses. It’s hard to picture scalpers hanging out in beautiful downtown Ringwood yelling, “Who’s buying?” or “Who’s selling?” But I bet Stouffville would have a full-service hotel if the ball park went up here. Just around the corner from Wayne Gretzky’s, right? We didn’t even make a short list. And SkyDome is now 26 years old. Larger minds than this one — save for those behind Markham’s ill-fate attempt at an NHL franchise — finally figured out we should build such sporting structures where people live or can easily access

Off The Top with Jim Mason them by public transit. See downtown Pittsburgh, Detroit and Toronto for solid examples. (On the other hand, Boston and Pittsburgh built their summer concert amphitheatres in the boonies and beyond, for some odd reason.) Next? Tennis Canada wanted an upgrade on its tired, old facility at York during the 1990s. A proposal to plunk it in Gormley, where Clublink’s golf courses lie north of Stouffville road, was proffered. Local politicians were into it. Meetings were held. Many a story was written in the Stouffville newspapers. Snubbed again. The stadium wasn’t being volleyed north of Steeles Avenue after all. Stouffville was also briefly in the running, we were told, for the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum which has flourished instead in St. Mary’s, Ont., since moving there from the T-Dot in 1998. (The ball hall seemed like an odd fit from the get-go, since baseball wasn’t being played in Stouffville at the time.) So, we must travel to our sporting events and concerts, hopefully via GO Transit, going almost door-to-door to the homes of the Maple Leafs, Raptors, Jays and Argos, whatever you want to call those places.

Re: Toboggan hill returning: mayor, Aug. 13 First, great news Mayor Altmann: do it. But did you really read some of the details in this article? I do have trouble with some of the justification for removing the hill in Memorial Park, as pointed out in the story, including: “That was always the plan … supported by the residents … Wayne Emmerson”. If so, why was there a protest of childrens’ art work on the fence when the town was digging it up? Why is there such support showing up suddenly? Because it was always there. The hill was moved for safety. York Regional Police had concerns. Really? If they were so concerned about the hill, which was open on two of four sides and backed by houses on one side, then the police must be going nuts about the new location further south in the park, backing onto a wooded area with a ravine pathway escape.

Pylons deserving of good laugh Re: Navigating through land of pylons, letter to the editor by Susan Logan, Aug. 13. I must applaud Susan Logan. Thank you for actually making me laugh about this situation. I commute five days a week to Hwy. 7 using Ninth Line, through the same ridiculous gauntlet of pylons. Except for the few days I saw workers putting in sidewalks, I have no clue as to why they need to be there. The road was widened only a few years

Facebook reacts to ‘hilly’ news 13

Re: Tobaggan hill returning: mayor, Aug.

Readers were quick to comment on facebook.com/stouffvillesuntribune shortly after this story about Mayor Justin Altmann’s plan to have the hill in Memorial Park rebuilt appeared on yorkregion.com and in The SunTribune last week: I think it would be great to have it back, it should never have been removed in the first place. However, I don’t want to see it replaced only to be removed in the future by the next mayor. SHERRI From the mom of 4 of the kids who protested the takedown of the toboggan hill in 2010 ... This is great news! MONICA I’m glad it will be coming back. I still do not like what

Well then, don’t plant trees in front of the kids. Goofy. And the new location has trees everywhere in front of children. Imagine politicians asking people what they want and not telling us what is good for us. Maybe the Common Sense Revolution is coming back in fashion.

ago. Has it already fallen into such disrepair? Every Monday, I and many others get to look forward to a new configuration of pylons. “Will I need to drive in the left lane, or the right?”and “When will the lane reduction begin, at Hoover Park Drive or further south?” And best of all: “What exactly is supposed to be going on here?” We all need a good laugh about this situation, because it’s not going away any time soon.

has happened to the park. The Park Drive extension was a mistake as far as myself and a number of friends are concerned. Losing the hill, two ball diamonds and the basketball nets was a big loss to downtown. DAVID Kudos, Mayor Altmann, for listening to your people, caring enough to ask and being smart enough to source out costs from local businesses that can benefit from marketing!!!! Smart mayoring.

From page 1.

… It’s wonderful for everybody,” he said. MarshallZehr group, a construction financing company, provided the funding. “This is a relief for all of us. The purchasers who now see a light at the end of the tunnel, as well as a possible move-in date; the neighbours who have put up with this inconvenience for far (too) long and all the residents of town who will soon be reaping the benefits of additional tax revenues in the town coffers,” Ward 3 Councillor Hugo Kroon posted, in part, on Facebook over the weekend. About 90 of the 154 units in the Rupert Avenue adult lifestyle condo building have been sold, but in the past 10 days, MacChesney said 13 potential sales were also made. They were pending resolution of the outstanding debts. About six people who have purchased units throughout the years have called the sales office requesting their deposits back, but have decided to stick it out, according to MacChesney.

buyer died One person, who purchased a unit a couple of years ago, has since died. It will be up to the family as to what to do with it, he said. Council first granted the developer site plan approval Oct. 3, 2006. Occupation was slated for 2010, but the former Parkview Home, where the project is located, was not demolished until 2011. In June 2011, council approved a revised design and in September 2012 a site plan agreement was executed. In October 2013, council approved an extension of the site plan to October 2014. To date, only the foundation and cap for the belowground parking garage has been constructed. “By the time they build it, I will be a senior,” Mary Love, a 46-year-old single mother who purchased a unit four-and-a-half years ago, told The Sun-Tribune prior to all debts being paid. “We want to thank area residents for their patience and understanding while we sought a solution with the developer,” stated Mayor Justin Altmann in a media release. “We will continue to monitor the project to ensure that construction timelines are met and the impact to the surrounding community is kept to a minimum.”

New dollar store big on parties Get your party supplies for a buck or two. The dollar store – Buck or Two Plus! – is expected to open in west-end Stouffville the first week of September, according to franchise owner Robert Fusco. The store is located in the entrance of the old NoFrills location at Main Street and Palmwood Gate. The LCBO moved into the remainder of the space last month. This is the second dollar store for Stouffville. “They’re fast growing businesses,” according to Fusco, 47, who noted his store is focused on the party supply sector. The store will initially have four or five full/part-time staff, he said. Prior to becoming a franchise owner, Fusco spent 12 years in environmental services at Parkview Homes and Stouffville Creek. – Sandra Bolan

Last week we did an East Coast ad. It was especially neat for me as I lived there for a number of years... and it was all fun! This week we’re going to the West Coast. I have had the good fortune to travel extensively and my first trip to the West Coast was when I thumbed my way out at 16, and that was an education in itself! To this day, I remember the friendliness of the Prairie folk, the expanse of sky, the monstrous and beautiful mountains, and that endless ocean! I have been back many times, whether for golf or just food and adventure, and we’ll share some of that food experience this week. Enjoy the trip!

How do we bring our generations together?

H

ow does a community bridge the gap between the young and the old; the novice and the aged; the adolescent and the

adult? Whitchurch-Stouffville would like to know and so would YOU 177. A meeting to discuss this issue, chaired by legacy project director Brian Puppa and researcher/editor Susan Bozak, was held at the public library last week. “It’s our desire to bring generations together,” said Puppa, “to build a stronger community for all.” To inspire this task, MPP Dr. Helena Jaczek presented the organization with a cheque for $35,000. This donation is in addition to a $75,000 Trillium grant awarded in 2014. “It’s all about engaging everyone,” Dr. Jaczek said. “This project will help make your town healthier and stronger.” But how? Such was the question on the minds of many in the audience, including university graduate Derek Alton. “What’s about to happen when all of you leave here tonight?” he asked. Replied Ms Bozak: “It’s an expe-

father, the late Eugene Lemon, dates back to 1994. Other area recipients include: Harvey Brown, Paul Hulshof, Howie Burkholder, Denis and Terry O’Connor and Rod King. “Ken represents everything for which Eugene stood,” said King. “He’s been a great ambassador for agriculture.”

Its removal, three years ago, was later described as “a mistake” by then mayor Wayne Emmerson.

Flowers can’t talk It’s oft been said that gardeners talk to flowers. In Stouffville, however, the flowers don’t talk back. If they did, the entire town would know the names of recipients of 2015 Garden Club awards, said to be 50 in total. It’s a thing called “privacy”, a government act that apparently forbids this practice. As stupid as this sanction may seem, the judges’ lips are sealed. Adding insult to injury, the judges can’t be identified, either. As a last

In memory of Melissa Melissa Stronach, muchloved senior personnel officer at Stouffville’s ScotiaBank, died suddenly July 15, 2015.

The well-attended service of celebration was, in itself, evidence of the affection held for her within the community.

Meet Smiley, help needy kids go back to school Smiley, the blind therapy dog and Internet sensation, will be holding a meet-and-greet today from 4 to 7 p.m. in Stouffville Memorial Park’s picnic shelter. Smiley and his owner Joanne George of Musselman’s Lake will also be accepting donations of school supplies — backpacks, binders, paper, pens/pencils etc. — that will then be given to the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank for distribution. “All kids want and need to have new stuff for school and we all know how expensive it can be,” George wrote on Facebook. Smiley, a St. John’s Ambulance therapy dog, helps children learning to read and comforts the elderly by visiting nursing homes, libraries, and schools in the Whitchurch-Stouffville area.

Our Water: Clean and Safe How is our water made clean and safe to drink? It starts with protection at the source. Water protection requires constant care and monitoring. York Region works with governments, businesses, farms and residents to make sure our groundwater is protected. We also make sure the used water going down our drains and toilets is thoroughly treated before it safely re-enters the environment. As Lake Ontario, Lake Simcoe, and groundwater provide drinking water to York Region residents, it is vital that this water continue to be protected. Our drinking water undergoes many treatment processes to make it safe. At the Georgina Water Treatment Plant,

contaminants are removed as lake water passes through membranes and ultra-violet light. Chlorine is added to protect our water as it moves through the distribution pipes before it arrives at your taps. The monitoring of water quality never stops. Last year, York Region performed 36,817 drinking water quality tests. These tests confirm the 285 million litres of water delivered each day to an estimated 1.1 million residents is clean and safe. The York Region water system is massive, integrated and fascinating. Yet, it is rarely seen. We’ve taken videos that will open the door to our underground world. We think you’ll be amazed.

W

hat does that number represent to you? Allow me to put it into perspective. It is about as many people as the entire complement of the Canadian Reserve Force. It is about as many people as the population of Bradford. It is approximately the total number of days the average Canadian lives. It is also the estimated number of Ontarians, who, one year after a car accident, will still be in pain. The Ministry of Transportation’s most recent published statistics show that in 2012, there were 61,001 people injured in car accidents. More than 96 percent. 58,805 of them suffered

This year, a research team commissioned by the Ministry of Finance published research papers that reviewed the findings of what the team considered to be the most reliable clinical studies relating to these 58,805 Ontarians injured in automobile collisions with injuries not requiring admission to hospital. According to one of their research papers, published in Journal of Manipulative and Psychological Therapeutics, Volume 32, Number 2S, “the preponderance of evidence indicates that, in adults, recovery of wh iplash-associated disorders is prolonged, with approximately half of those affected reporting neck pain symptoms one year after the accident. Perhaps, you may think that there must be something unique about the 50 percent who don’t get better in the first six months or who never get better. The research team reviewed all the red flags, like pre-existing conditions, age, percentage of body in pain, baseline neck pain and headache intensity and disability. Researchers concluded they could not reasonably predict who would recover and who

would not. So, you and I are as likely to recover after one year as we are to not recover after one year. And we have the same odds of being one of the unfortunate 1,311 to 1,836 Ontarians who suffer prolonged severe symptoms. With 58,805 Ontarians suffering from such injuries each year, and half not recovering after one year, you would assume that your auto policy would afford ample funding for treatment to cope, wouldn’t you? Formerly, motorists had coverage for $100,000 of treatment if they needed it. Then, in 2010, the government reduced it to $3,500 for those who have injuries like we have been discussing. Now the government is contemplating reducing it even further, and limiting the duration of treatment to just six months. On behalf of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, I attended the Financial Services Commission August 17 to implore the Ministry of Finance and the Financial Services Commission to afford greater care to Ontarians whose soft-tissue injuries persist beyond six months. There should be more funding available through Ontarian’s automobile policies. Let us hope they listen to reason 29,402 Ontarians are too many to ignore.

COMING UP

Motorfest revved up from humble start BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

The first Motorfest, way back in 1997, had 45 classic cars and a decent number of people oohing and ahhing at vehicles that reminded them of a time gone by. The one-day event raised $1,300, which was split between the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank and Markham Stouffville Hospital. Flash-forward to 2015 and the Sept. 12 show is expected to attract more than 1,200 vehicles and upwards of 5,000 people. “It’s a time for friends to get together and look at old cars and old people,” Tim Soukup, a member of the Motorfest organizing committee, told councillors back in June during a delegation. He added a number of car clubs “feel this is one of the best shows they attend.” In its second year, Motorfest partnered with Teen Challenge, a faith-based organization that provides drug and alcohol rehabilitation to women 18 years of age and older. Since then, the car show has raised more than $150,000 for the organization and Soukup hopes for another $10,000 this year, he told councillors. All of the money comes from donations. Neither car owners nor attendees pay an admission fee to the family-friendly event. Along with a sea of cars on Teva Canada’s grounds in west-end Stouffville, the daylong event includes music from the Marion Drexler Band, as well as the 45s. There will also be vendors and food available for purchase. New this year is a golf cart. Not a relic for people to peruse, but a modern day one that will be used to transport seniors and other people with mobility issues around the show, so they, too, can see all of the vehicles. The idea for the golf cart, which is being donated by Bennett

Meet artists at new gallery show tonight A non-traditional approach to landscapes makes up Latcham Gallery’s new show — Expanding The Landscape. Each of the four artists in the show utilizes innovative and contemporary filters to reflect landscapes. Up close, Robert Wiens’ watercolours appear almost abstract, but take a step back and the paintings come into focus, according to the press release. Toni Hafkenscheid utilizes photos of iconic landscapes to create nostalgic postcard images, while Monique Resnick reflects our current obsession with Google through paintings that isolate aspects of the landscape through the Google lens. Alison Judd’s wood block prints present layers of ebbing and flowing colour, which is made of wood grain. The show runs from today to Sept. 26. The opening reception takes place tonight from 7 to 9 p.m. at the gallery, 6240 Main St. The artists will be present. For more information, go to www.latchamgallery.ca

We will see how it works,” he told The Sun-Tribune.

‘no complaints’ In trying to compare Roberts with other Spirit captains, Perrin said he reminds him a lot of Andrew Doyle, who now plays for the University of Toronto Varsity Blues. “He’s a good team player, a good team guy and well respected by his teammates,” Perrin said. “He works hard and doesn’t complain.” On a separate note, Perrin revealed the club has added former Spirit forward Rob Acton as an assistant coach. A 22-year-old Stouffville resident and son of former NHL player and assistant coach Keith Acton and younger brother of former Spirit player Will Acton, Rob was a member of the Stouffville team that captured the OJHL championship in the 2011-12 campaign. “He comes from a good hockey background with his dad (Keith) and brother (Will) still playing professionally. We feel at his age being a relatively young guy he can relate to the players well,” Perrin said. Acton will handle the club’s offence. Acton replaces Brad Barton, who left the club to take on the head coaching/general manager position with the Blind River Beavers of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League club in May. The Spirit’s first home preseason game is next Thursday against Lindsay. The regular season home opener is a Labour Day matinee with the Toronto Jr. Canadiens.

When Spencer Roberts dons his Stouffville Spirit jersey for the 2015-16 Ontario Junior Hockey League campaign, he will have some additional lettering sewn onto it. To be precise, it will bear the letter ‘C’ as the 18-yearold Stouffville resident and nephew of former NHLer Gary Roberts was named as the Spirit’s team captain. “Being a hometown guy, it’s a great honour,” said the third-year Spirit forward who lives next door to the Stouffville Arena. “I’ve been looking up to these guys my whole life.” Roberts conceded it caught him totally off guard when officially informed late last week by Spirit coowner and general manager Kenny Burrows. Citing this marks the first time in his minor hockey career he will be a captain, Roberts knows there will be some added pressure placed upon his shoulders. “There will be pressure in different ways,” Roberts said. “Like in how I try to lead the guys this year and how I react to things out there.” Foremost though, Roberts said the one thing he does not want to change is his approach to the game. “I just want to be the same player on the ice and just try to lead by example,” said Roberts, who amassed 12 goals and 14 assists in 49 regular season tilts last year. Jeff Perrin, Spirit head coach, said the decision to anoint Roberts as team captain for the upcoming season was not a difficult decision.


2015 Golf puts the ‘Sport’ back into wagons By Jim Robinson Metroland Wheels

er up to the sporty GTI and the hubris-spitting R, the Sportwagon fills the niche for those wanting CUV like space but not at CUV prices. The Sportwagon replaces the outgoing Golf wagon and is slightly bigger, yet up to a full 137 lb lighter. Dimensionally, it is 1.1 inches longer at 179.6 inches, and 0.7 inches wider at 70.8 inches. Being 0.9 inches lower with a 2.2-inch longer wheelbase, styling is more aggressive thanks to the “cab backward” look as a result of the use of VW’s new flexible Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB)

AUSTIN, TX: With the 2015 Sportwagon, the missing piece in the lineup of Volkswagen Golf models is complete. The 2015 Golf won just about every meaningful award in the auto industry from North American Car of the Year to the Canadian Automotive Jury Best of the Best. And when you look at Golf, it makes sense. From a basic three- or five-door Golf econo cruis-

architecture. While North Americans are rushing to buy compact and intermediate CUVs, this is still a very large market for a station wagon. The Sportwagon offers similar cargo space to a CUV but outwardly takes up less space in a garage or, more to the point, a single car driveway or underground condo parking space. The Sportwagon offers two engines, starting with a 1.8-litre TSI turbo direct injection four-cylinder (170 hp, 184 lb/ft or torque) introduced last year on the seventh generation Golf. It is equipped with

a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The second engine is the familiar 2.0-litre TDI four-cylinder direct injection turbo diesel (150 hp, 236 lb/ft) with a standard six-speed manual or sixspeed dual clutch automatic. Diesel fuel economy is very good at 7.7/5.4L/100 km city/highway for the manual and 7.5/5.6L/100 km for the automatic. With a 50-litre fuel tank, theoretically, the Sportwagon manual is good for 920 km on one filling. Fuel consumption for the 1.8-litre TSI manual is

We say goodbye to all 2015 models. You say hello to big savings. Das Auto.

9.5/6.6L/100 km city/highway and 9.6/6.7L/100 km for the automatic. The cars sold in Canada and the U.S. are identical except for the name. For some reason it is called the SportWagen in the U.S. and Sportwagon in Canada. In the U.S., the three trim levels are S, SE and SEL while in Canada it is Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. Standard features include 5.8-inch touchscreen interface, heated front seats and automatic postcollision braking, which warns the driver of an impending crash. What we do get in Canada is a standard backup camera on all models where the base U.S. models comes without. Options are numerous and include the Fender Premium Audio System and Climatronic automatic air conditioning. Cargo space is generous at 30.5 cu ft behind the back seat and 66.5 cu ft with the seat folded. Another plus is the low loading height of the wagon. The back seat can carry three adults, no problem, thanks to 903 mm of legroom.

During a monsoon-like rainstorm in Austin where the Golf Sportwagon launch was held, I drove both the diesel and gasoline versions, with the TDI feeling very strong thanks to that 236 lb/ft of torque and the advantage of the dual clutch autobox.

The interior is very clean with extensive use of warm colours. The interior fitments of both the TDI (Comfortline) and TSI (Trendline) are very crisp and clean, especially the instrument panel and gauge package. Even on the base TSI, the aluminum look trim made my co-driver remark it was one the best in that price range. With the base TSI, the five-speed manual felt oldfashioned, making a case for the six-speed from the diesel. But I think most will opt the autobox regardless. However, in the five-speed TSI I averaged 33.7 mpg and this was in real world driving, and those were American gallons not Imperial. Pricing for the base TSI Sportwagon manual starts at $22,495 and $23,895 for the automatic. Comfortline manual/automatics are $24,695/$26,095 and Highlines, $30,495/$31,995. TDI Trendlines are $24,995/$26,395; Comfortline, $26,995/$28,395 and Highline, $32,795/$34,195. VW Canada believes station wagons are something that still has great appeal to those shopping in the economy market. And in a tsunami of CUVs, a wagon still makes a lot of sense.

19-0 Sharks win provincial title BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA

Mhayakawa@yrmg.com

In describing their 2015 softball season, the Stouffville Sharks peewee select boys can boast by saying it was perfect. Putting their 15-0 won-loss record on the line at the provincial championships in Unionville Saturday, the Sharks ran the table that was capped off with an 11-1 win over Springbrook in the final. After a scoreless first inning, the Sharks went on the attack when Evan Farrell belted a home run to lead off the second inning. Not to be outdone, Braden Smith then belted the longest ball of the day for a round tripper to give the Sharks a 2-0 lead. Jack Smalley kept the offence going with a timely double that drove in two more runs. With Smalley and Mathew Offen scoring, the Sharks jumped out to a commanding 6-0 lead. Strong pitching and defence enabled

the Sharks to close things out, with Nicolas Brandon throwing out the first two batters in the third inning and Scott Hoover making a critical catch on a long fly ball to left field in the fifth. After Springbrook broke up the shutout in the fourth inning with their lone run of the game, the Sharks continued their onslaught and at the end of six innings, the game was over and Sharks captured the provincial crown. Sharks’ head coach Steve Hopkins, along with assistants Mike Clements, Mike Farrell and Tom Brandon, were not surprised by the club’s performance. “They supported each other and were willing to do whatever it took to make the team successful,” Hopkins said. “It has been a real pleasure working with them. We hope they realize how special a provincial championship and 19-0 season is.” To reach the final, the Sharks got off to a good start after routing the Kingston Kobras

12-0. In the first inning, Spencer Krabi hit a single and stole third after Farrell singled as well. Aidan Hopkins opened the scoring with another single to bring Krabi home. Aidan Kilpatrick drove in Farrell and Hopkins. Offen pitched four innings with seven strikeouts and one walk. Krabi earned the save. The Sharks then faced West Carleton and had little difficulty after cruising to a 27-0 win that concluded after four innings. Sam Roy drew three walks, had one hit and scored four runs while lead-off hitter Liam Clements went three for three and also crossed the plate four times. Smith contributed with three homeruns. Advancing to the semifinal, the Sharks made quick work of Topham Park (Toronto) as they mercied them after five innings 20-1.

Dan West enters Lindsay hall of fame Former Stouffville Spirit head coach Dan West is one of three individuals along with one team that will be inducted into the Lindsay and District Sports Hall of Fame. West was named head coach of the Spirit during the summer of 2005 and directed them to the Ontario Junior Hockey League championship final that season before losing to the St. Michael’s Buzzers. Relieved of his duties with the Spirit after the 2006-07 season, the Oakwood native became head coach of the now defunct Bowmanville Eagles for the start of the 2007-08 season and eventually became head coach of the Lindsay Muskies in 2013. He also coached the Jr. A North Bay Trappers and Jr. C Uxbridge Bruins. Still coaching the Muskies, West also holds the titles of the club’s general manager and director of operations. West played in the Ontario Hockey League, Western Canada Hockey League and Jr. A in Summerside, PEI, where he helped his team to a national championship. West and the other inductees will be honoured at the Lindsay Armoury Oct. 25.
