Markham-Stouffville would be a Liberal riding if the federal election were held today, according to a prognosticating website. “(Liberal Jane) Philpott, I think, is a legitimate challenger,” agreed Scott Aquanno, a political scientist and teacher at the University

of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa. “If I had to guess right now, I would guess that riding would shift Liberal.” The website threehundredeight.com projects a Liberal win in Markham-Stouffville with 42 per cent of the vote. The Conservatives would be second at 36.5 per cent, followed by the NDP (17.2 per cent) and Green Party (3.6 per cent).

Change in plans may have saved couple in restaurant BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

A mix-up in pedals caused a car to be driven into Captain George Fish and Chips restaurant in Stouffville Sunday afternoon. The incident occurred around 4:30 p.m. It could have been far worse. “A vehicle hit the gas instead of the brake and drove into the building,” according to York Regional Police Const. Laura Nicolle. People were in the restaurant, which is on

west-end Main Street, just east of Ringwood Drive, but there were no injuries. Eric Kim was working in the kitchen with his mother, who just turned on the fryer when “all of a sudden I hear this giant bang. What I thought was a gas explosion ... I go out and see this Toyota parked inside” the restaurant, he said. It was slow and only two people were in the restaurant at the time. One of them got up from their table, the car missed by only

a few feet, to use the washroom, said Kim’s mother, Judy Song. She said the duo was actually going to sit one table over, but decided to move. That original table was right in the path of the vehicle. Owner Danny Kim is not sure when the restaurant will re-open, but believes it will be in about a month. The vehicle hit a support beam and the building’s structure has to be checked, he said.

Murder trial to begin in January By Jeremy Grimaldi

jgrimaldi@yrmg.com

Dean Wiwchar’s first-degree murder trial is set to begin in the new year, three-and-a-half years after he was charged in the mob style hit of John Raposo. The 29-year-old former WhitchurchStouffville resident once described by his lawyers as just “a middle class kid from Stouffville” will see his long awaited trial go ahead on Jan. 11. Wiwchar is accused of plotting and carrying out — along with two other men — a daring hit. It occurred while Raposo and a number of others sports watched the Italian national soccer team play in the European Cup, on College Street, in what was later dubbed the Little Italy Cafe Killing. “It’s not like he’s some anonymous hit man flown in from B.C.,” said his former lawyer, Christopher Avery at his bail hearing. “He comes from a good Stouffville family with firm roots.” Wiwchar’s father, a businessman, and his mother, who works at a nursing home, could not be reached for comment.

The murder occurred in June 2012 in front of crowds of people watching the Italy-Ireland soccer match at Toronto’s Sicilian Sidewalk Cafe. The gunman disguised as a construction worker, with a vest, hard hat and filter mask, walked up to the cafe and allegedly opened fire, hitting Raposo in the head. Raposo was also known as Johnny ‘Maserati’ for his love of sports cars. Three days later, Wiwchar was taken down in a Toronto police ambush, aided by York Regional Police, near Gerrard Street East and Parliament Street. The Wiwchar family lived in a brick twostorey home on Aintree Drive, in the Westfield Estates subdivision in Stouffville’s east end. Another suspect, Martino Caputo, 39, was arrested in Germany in 2013 and brought back to Canada to face murder charges alongside Wiwchar. A third man charged with the same crime, Rabih Alkhalil, 25, was arrested in Greece soon after. All three will be tried together, at Toronto’s University court at the beginning of 2016 according to Wiwchar’s lawyer, John Rosen. - With files from Torstar News Service

Kim has owned the restaurant for about a year. The driver of the grey Toyota Corolla was a 34-year-old woman from Stouffville. No charges will be laid as the accident took place on private property, therefore, only criminal charges would apply and there was no criminal intent, according to Const. Nicolle. “It is an accident, there would be no charges that would apply,” she said.

‘Jays’ fan’ robs Gormley gas station York Regional Police are looking for a Blue Jays’ fan who held up a gas station in Whitchurch-Stouffville Monday night. Around 7:45 p.m., a gas station in the Woodbine Avenue and Stouffville Road area in the community of Gormley was robbed. York police do not identify businesses that have been robbed. There are Husky and Petro-Canada stations at the intersection. A man entered the store and made a demand for cash, indicating he had a handgun, according to police. The store employee complied and the suspect fled the store. The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 50 and 60. He is about 5-foot-6 with a medium build. He had a white beard/goatee. He was wearing blue jeans, a black hoodie and a Blue Jays’ world championship shirt. York Regional Police are also using the hashtag #HoppingBackOnTheBandWagon to help identify the suspect: “Looking to ID old school Blue Jays

fan, wanted for robbing a gas station in Stouffville http://bit.ly/1LVpw0H #HoppingBackOnTheBandWagon”

York Regional Police are also using the hashtag #HoppingBackOnTheBandWagon to help identify the suspect: The Jays last won the World Series championship in 1993. Anyone with information is asked to contact the York Regional Police HoldUp Unit at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 6631, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. You can also leave an anonymous tip at www.1800222tips.com, or text your tip by sending TIPYORK and your message to CRIMES (274637) starting with the word YORK. – Sandra Bolan

COLUMN

LETTER OF THE WEEK

Unknown runner became courageous hero: Terry Fox

Stand up to developers, make our town special, council

T

he legend of courageous Canadian Terry Fox has become just that — legendary. But as the 35th anniversary of his Marathon of Hope draws closer this month, and as all our communities prepare to present annual fundraising walks in his name, it’s fascinating to take a glimpse into how the media wrote about this passionate young man with one leg and a dream of running across Canada. It’s important to remember that newspapers, radio and TV stations did their best to share news of Terry’s impending arrival to their communities in the days before Twitter, Facebook and cellphones. An editorial from a July 1980 Richmond Hill Liberal newspaper, entitled “Terry’s now clear of populated area,” is a fun look back at how local newspapers wrote about and praised this unknown young man from B.C., who — we now all know — became one of Canada’s most famous heroes. “Terry Fox — fighting a oneman battle against cancer — finally arrived in Richmond Hill Friday afternoon, but even the radio stations in the area were hard pressed to inform people when he would be in any one spot. Last week, newspapers along Yonge Street, from Steeles Avenue to Bradford, attempted to predict when and where the young onelegged runner would be. It was virtually an impossible task. Terry, who is attempting to run across Canada, has been in this area for about two weeks and has crisscrossed himself so much, it’s a wonder he’s not dizzy. In Richmond Hill: Hillcrest Mall, a week before the runner was scheduled to arrive, attempted to set up a reception and set the wheels in motion. Canadian Cancer Society volunteers worked inside the mall and collect some $6,000, while mall employees put together another $2,400. The reception in front of Hillcrest finally happened Friday afternoon, but as late as Friday morning, one report said Terry was behind sched-

Marney Beck ule and would abandon his plans to run north on Hwy. 11, selecting instead Hwy. 27. When the runner had actually arrived on Hwy. 11, we were still getting reports he wasn’t coming to Richmond Hill. Thursday night, Terry was in Aurora for a reception, Friday morning he in the Brampton area, at noon he was at Canada’s Wonderland in Maple and in the afternoon he was in Richmond Hill. The poor kid must be going bonkers by now. He has been directed in so many circles he must be having trouble finding west. Terry Fox is doing a great service in helping to fight cancer. And every district of the Cancer Society wants to acknowledge him in that particular area. He has probably come closer than anyone to actually being in a dozen places at once. Now that he’s on his way out of the densely populated Metropolitan area, Terry hopefully can relax a bit and get back to his original challenge. Keep running, Terry.” Communities across Canada will honour Terry over the next several weeks. If you want to register, go toterryfox.org/Run/index. In Stouffville, the run takes place Sept. 20 starting at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure Centre/Library at 1 p.m., with registration at noon. Every town and city is proud to fundraise and celebrate Terry’s epic feat 35 year ago. Bring along your friends and family and keep Terry’s dream alive. Marney Beck is editor of the Richmond Hill/Thornhill Liberal newspapers.

What do communities like Unionville and Kleinburg have in common? They control the look of their new developments. With quaint architectural designs that are consistent, it not only creates community pride, it draws visitors and business alike. Our plan in Stouffville, well, there is no plan. We are so happy that someone wants to build a new plaza or development, we allow them to build pretty much what they like, as long as it’s to code. Even the entrance to our town at Hwy. 48 and Main Street lacks any attention to detail.

When the McCarthys bought their Vandorf home five years ago they thought the viewing times were a bit odd – 7 to 8 p.m. or Sundays – but didn’t think much about it at the time. Now they know why. Noise from Hwy. 404, which their home backs onto, is “extreme”, according to Julie McCarthy. It’s so bad her son can’t sleep at night even with the windows closed. An online petition, started by the McCarthys, to get noise barriers installed, where they do not exist, between Aurora and Bloomington roads, sits at 72 signatures. There are about 200 homes affected. The goal is 100 signatures. “The prevailing winds are generally from the northwest and the land in the area is quite flat, so the entire area south of the Aurora Road, extending to Vandorf Road between Woodbine Avenue and the 404 are impacted to varying degrees depending on a variety of conditions,” according to Ward 1 Councillor Ken Ferdinands. His ward encompasses the Vandorf area. “If my community is ever going to get a barrier installed, it will be now,” McCarthy said. That is because the Ministry of Transportation is conducting a Hwy. 404 environmental assessment and preliminary design study from Hwy. 407 to Green Lane for the construction of HOV lanes. The proposed widening of the newly extended north/ south highway would occur within the existing median, according to the public information notice. Public information sessions were held this summer. But residents shouldn’t expect noise barriers between Aurora and Bloomington roads. “Based on the technical and economic feasibility requirements, noise walls are not warranted at these locations,” Astrid Poei, spokesperson for the MTO told The Sun-Tribune via email.

sharon noise barrier When the Hwy. 404 extension opened last September, residents in Sharon complained about the noise caused by the vehicles driving on the concrete road. It forced the MTO to conduct another study. The last one was done in 2006. The results of the study were released in February. The study used estimated traffic levels for 2031 to see if noise mitigation was warranted along the extension. The MTO guidelines stated mitigation is technically warranted if the noise levels are increased to 65 dBA or the increase is five dB louder than the no-build ambient level. While the study found five noise barriers were feasible under the guidelines, only one was economically doable. The MTO will construct a 2.7-km long noise barrier from just north of Green Lane to just north of Farr Avenue. It won’t be constructed until 2016. McCarthy is hoping the new study that resulted in this noise barrier will help them get theirs. Where the two areas differ is that Vandorf homes were constructed after the highway was approved, according to Poei. “The homes adjacent to the newly built highway experienced both a five decibel increase in noise and in some areas the level was greater than 65 dBA, therefore, noise mitigation was investigated and it met all criteria for a barrier,” she said.

Education workers start job action in region today BY LISA QUEEN

lqueen@yrmg.com

More than 5,000 education workers in York Region will join a provincewide work-to-rule campaign beginning this morning. “It’s going to be difficult. We don’t want to go out on a full-blown strike. We always have the students’ concerns (in mind),” Elena Di Nardo, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 2331 in York Region, said. The union represents 55,000 educational assistants, custodians, secretaries, library technicians, early childhood educators, student support workers and others across the province. They are in a legal strike position today. Di Nardo is more optimistic than she was late last month that a settlement can be reached after the provincial government agreed to additional bargaining dates, including today and tomorrow (Sept. 10 and 11). But she isn’t ruling out escalating job action. “We’re hoping through these days of negotiations that we have centrally, we can come to an agreement without having to go, actually, on a full-blown strike,” she said. “We could have escalating job action. We could step up work-to-rule. We could possibly go into a rotating strike or a full-blown strike. But we’re giving the opportunity to the ministry to come to an agreement with what we have on the table.” As the work-to-rule campaign kicks off, students and parents should not feel any impact, Di Nardo said. “We have to keep in mind students come first and the safety of students always comes first,” she said. “It’s really not going to affect the students as much or the parents when we’re doing a workto-rule, but it could be a completely different scenario if we go on a rotating strike or a fullblown strike, which is not where we want to go. We want to be able to get an agreement… Our

goal is not to go on a full-blown strike. Our goal is to be there for the students and to come up with a fair, tentative agreement that will work best for everyone overall.” During the first phase of the work-to-rule, education workers will refuse to work overtime, not come to school early or work late, decline participation in any voluntary activities, not take calls or emails from supervisors if they are home sick, refuse to perform duties of fellow union colleagues and “work at a safe pace,” Di Nardo said. Although she would not comment on the union’s demands, she said education workers want to be treated as fairly as teachers are. “The school does not run alone by teachers. We all play a very important part and we always seem to be put on the back burner — education support workers,” she said. Public high school teachers and Catholic secondary and elementary teachers reached agreements with the province last month. However, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario is still negotiating with the province, York Region union president David Clegg said. The union announced last month it was escalating its work-to-rule campaign. Elementary teachers will participate in extracurricular activities, but won’t take part in field trips and “meet the teacher” nights, collect money for school-related activities, participate in fundraising activities, email principals and vice-principals outside work hours unless there is a safety concern, and collect or distribute school or board paperwork to students. Clegg isn’t optimistic there will be a quick resolution. “While discussions at the provincial bargaining table have been ongoing since Sept. 1, the progress, if it follows the course of the concluded OSSTF (Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation) negotiations, may prove lengthy,” he said.

Check out these beauties in MotorFest field

he date was Sept. 1. The time was 7 p.m. The sun was descending like a fireball in the west. The moon was rising like a phantasm in the east. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. So where was I? Admiring a stream of 32 antique and classic cars travelling south on Mostar Street. Their destination? Cruise Night at Stouffville’s Royal Canadian Legion. Their purpose? Pre-acceptance to MotorFest 2015 this Saturday at nearby Teva Canada. MotorFest, hosted by EastRidge Evangelical Missionary Church, is one of the largest car shows of its kind in Ontario with, weather permitting, more than 1,000 vehicles on display. All funds raised through donations go to Teen Challenge GTA in Aurora, an organization that offers young women and adults freedom from drug and alcohol dependence. There’s no admission fee. Also free lunch for the first 1,000 registered drivers. Two entries are sure to attract attention. There’s a 1959 Cadillac Seville, owned by Harry Brock of Claremont and entered by

the Avanti was later produced by the Altman & Newman Co., of South Bend, Indiana. This one carries a price tag of $22,000.

Ride with pride

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas son Adam. This beautiful black Caddy, powered by a .390 cubic inch V-8 engine, has been driven only 81,000 miles. The asking price — $40,000. The other — a 1972 Avanti II, owned by Peter Barker of Blackstock. Originally built by Studebaker,

Following the Terry Fox Run, Sept. 20, Sandy Schell-Kennedy will retire as the 25-year director of this remarkable community event. But hopefully not without the send-off she so justly deserves. My suggestion? A ride with pride aboard a two-wheeled chariot pulled by two Lionel Purcell ponies. Think about it.

Will look like new When refurbished, Stouffville’s 1946 Fargo fire truck will look like new. Work, under the direction of brigade fire prevention education officer Jennifer Cooper, will begin next month and hopefully be completed by 2017. The anticipated cost is $80,000.

History repeats A capella voices will again echo from the rafters of Altona’s historic Mennonite Meeting House Sept. 13 when the caretaker committee hosts its annual 3 p.m. service. The hamlet is in Pickering, three kilometres southeast of Stouffville. The church was erected in 1852. The cemetery is the burial site of Abraham Stouffer, Stouffville’s first reeve.

Married 60 years Congratulations to Lemonville’s Grant and Marion Wells, married 60 years, Sept. 2. The well-known and highly respected couple celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary at Stratford, attending a live performance of Sound of Music, a gift from their family. Congratulations also to Stouffville’s Jean O’Neill, 90 years young, Aug. 29.

Church garden to return Gone but not forgotten, the beautiful prayer garden at Stouffville United Church will be restored, but slightly smaller in size and at a different location, says Henrike Bowman, the church’s property committee chair. The original garden was removed to provide space for a Montessori school playground.

Questions remain What happened to Country Style in Stouffville’s Giant Tiger plaza? The popular coffee and donut shop closed suddenly two months ago. There’s been no comment from head office. Safe to say managements at Tim Hortons and McDonald’s aren’t complaining. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.

Hospice provides unpaid caregivers

Breck’s student Sophie Hamilton placed second in the entire country in the nine and under category.

It was a jig of a good summer for the Breck School of Highland Dance. The Stouffville’s school team of 14 dancers placed first in the Scotdance Canada Championship Series team division, with their dance Labyrinth. The weeklong event, which was held in London, Ont. this past July, also played host to the Canadian Championships for solo dancing. Only pre-qualified dancers compete and there were three from each province for each age group, according to Lisa Breck.

A story on Evergreen Hospice’s work in the Sept. 3 edition contained an error. The community hospice provides respite care for unpaid caregivers.

No money required from town The story on the proposed solar energy project at the Stouffville Clippers Sports Complex Sept. 3 contained an error. The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville would not have had to put money up front for the project to proceed, the energy co-op says. The Sun-Tribune regrets the errors.

‘This is the stuff every highland dancer dreams of achieving.’ The week ended with the Scotdance Canada Open Championship, in which dancers from Canada and around the world competed against each other.

Sophie won the nine and under age group. “Highland dancing is very black and white and they mean business. When I tell you that my team is the best in Canada and Sophie is second in Canada, it is the real deal,” Breck told The SunTribune. “These aren’t fudged results or competitions made to sound important. This is the stuff every highland dancer dreams of achieving. The sport is very demanding and taxing on the body and these girls practise hours a day.” – Sandra Bolan

Italian manufacturer wants to set up shop in Gormley BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

yorkregion.com

STOUFFVILLE NEWS ONLINE?

An Italian-based manufacturer of construction equipment wants to build their North American head office and distribution centre in Gormley. Company officials for Pilosio want to move onto 74 acres of land at Bethesda Road and Woodbine Avenue. The land is owned by Verdi Alliance, along with others. Proximity to the 400 series of highways and Toronto, along with its visibility from Hwy. 404 are what make the site attractive to Pilosio, according to Susan Rosenthal, a lawyer with Davies, Howe Partners and the legal counsel for Verdi Alliance and other owners of the property. However, there is a bit of a problem. In the early 1990s, the landowners tried to get the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville’s official plan and zoning bylaw amended to permit industrial uses. It went to the OMB, but the applications were never approved or denied. So now, in order to move the process along, the landowners are working with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs to issue an order approving applications before the OMB. As part of the process, the landowners sought support from council late last month. It was unanimously granted. The landowners are also working with the town to get a temporary zoning bylaw so Pilosio can set up in mobile offices. “Time is critical,” Rosenthal told The SunTribune, noting Pilosio has been working in Canada without a proper head office and there are opportunities in the United States they want to take advantage of. She also told councillors last month if the

ministry does not approve the application immediately, the company will move on and build their head office elsewhere. Pilosio is working on getting meetings with the ministry to approve the site, Rosenthal told The Sun-Tribune. “We’re doing everything we can to get them here,” Ward 3 Councillor Hugo Kroon told The Sun-Tribune. The company would be located in his ward. Not only would Pilosio bring jobs to Whitchurch-Stouffville, but Kroon said there would be a domino effect and other like companies would follow. “Even though it’s blue collar, it’s very skilled” and well paying, he told The Sun-Tribune. Neither Kroon nor Rosenthal could indicate the number of jobs, but the councillor said it would be “reasonably substantial.” During last month’s council meeting, Kroon noted Whitchurch-Stouffville was Pilosio’s first choice for their North American head office. “I’m very proud of that,” he said during the meeting. Pilosio was founded in Italy in 1961. The company manufactures, rents and sells building structures such as scaffolding, formworks for walls and slabs, retaining systems, as well as structures for entertainment events such as stages and grandstands, according to its website. In 2011, the company created the Building the Peace award, which is given out annually to individuals or companies behind infrastructure, urban development, regeneration and restoration projects, which have contributed to the improvement of living conditions, as well as promoted tolerance and peace among people, according to the website.

Listen to Life, write a story

Everyone has a story — all you have to do is listen. And when young and old come together to talk and listen, they can change each other’s lives, their community, and even the world. In partnership with the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library and the Stouffville Sun-Tribune, the Legacy Project’s Listen to a Life Story Contest is a part of WS YOU 177 One Town, One Book. Last year’s local student winner, 14-year-old Neya Ramanan, interviewed 105-year-old Marjorie Gayman for her story. This year’s contest ends in March. Students in Whitchurch-Stouffville are eligible to win a $250 gift card from a major electronics retailer, courtesy of Stouffville Creek Retirement Residence. WS YOU 177 is a whole-community initiative that connects generations in meaningful new ways. For the contest, a young person 8 to 18 years interviews a grandparent or grandfriend 50 years or older about their life and writes a 300-word story. The judging committee is looking for a story that captures a theme, moment, or experience that’s important in the older person’s life. One entry per team (i.e. young person and grandparent or “grandfriend”). Entries must be 300 words or less, be a true story about an older person’s life. For more information, go to legacyproject.org or call 905-640-8914 or 1-800-772-7765. *

Spring frost decimated some apple varieties BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

If you want to go apple picking, you better do it sooner rather than later. The frost that hit in late May wiped out about half of Applewood Farm Winery’s crop. Applewood has 13 varieties of apples on 35 acres. “It was so cold that day. Wind was from the north. It was 2C at sunset and it just dropped like a stone from there,” Matthew Passafiume, owner of Applewood Farm Winery said. “It’s crazy you can lose a whole year’s work in eight hours,” he said. The hardest hit were the honey crisp apples. About 80 per cent of Applewood’s crop was lost. Honey crisp also happens to be the most popular, according to Passafiume. The frost was about a week later than normal, so some of the apples were already on the tree, while the rest were in bloom. “The apple is completely garbage,” Passafiume said of those that were already on the tree. Applewood also lost about 30 per cent of their strawberries. “We’re not going to break even this year. We’re going to be operating at a loss this year,” Passafiume said. Applewood not only relies on the apples for family pickers, they turn them into fruit wines. Because of the smaller crop, they may have to reduce their wine production, he said. Whitchurch-Stouffville resident James Liaros, whose family owns a nine-acre orchard the just over the border in Markham, also lost about 50 per cent of their crop due

to the frost. “The loss does have some impact, but I buy and sell in large volumes, which allows for a flow of apples,” Liaros told The SunTribune via email, noting he does not solely rely on his own orchard. Other provinces did not suffer the same weather damage, which means they can meet Liaros’ supply and demand needs, ensuring a stable market, he said. Liaros, who has been selling apples at the Stouffville Country Market for more than 25 years, was a 2014 Ward 4 candidate. He lost to Rick Upton. “In my opinion, I believe it will be status quo other than the high demand apples such as ambrosia, royal gala, fuji and honey crisp that may see a slight increase in price,” according to Liaros. Both growers lost more this year than in 2012 when the warm winter was followed by a deep freeze, then hot summer. “That was a once in a 100-year event and it happened again. I think we’re seeing a trend here and it’s troubling” Passafiume said. Apple picking in Applewood’s McCowan Road orchard began last weekend. “This year I don’t think we’re going to make Thanksgiving,” Passafiume said, noting they typically go to Halloween. However, not all is lost when it comes to the family fun orchard experience. Because he knew the apple crop would be so small, more pumpkins were planted so people have something to pick later in the season. For more information, go to www.applewoodfarmwinery.com


all Candidates confirmed for election meeting

Markham-Stouffville riding ‘real toss-up’ From page 1.

Calandra’s actions in the House of Commons, according to Aquanno. “It’s all about winning the election and not what’s good for society,” said Marc Menard, a professor of Canadian politics at Seneca College, York Region’s community college. Menard also agreed with Aquanno in that Calandra’s actions in parliament may not resonate well with everyone. But he also noted the new riding is “a real toss-up”. Calandra may also get swept up in the current mentality of “anybody but Conservative.” Part of that attitude can be attributed to the Conservatives being in power for nine years and people are getting tired of their government and their policies, according to Menard.

‘There’s never been an election in living memory that’s so unpredictable, even in ridings that seem sewn up.’ The Duffy trial, reaction to the Syrian crisis and the economy may also perpetuate the “anybody but Conservative” attitude among Canadians, according to Aquanno. “When the economy sputters, the incumbent takes the heat, rightly or wrongly,” he said. The Conservatives have between 25 and 40 per cent of the voters, according to Aquanno, who said he doesn’t expect that number to grow. Menard called the Conservative followers, who are older, “loyal to a fault” and said the other 50 per cent of voters are undecided and shopping around, which may create more strategic voting if the public does not want another Conservative government. This leaves the Liberals and NDP trying to appeal to the undecided voter, he said. “There’s never been an election in living memory that’s so unpredictable, even in ridings that seem sewn up,” Menard said. “There will be lots of upsets,” he said, adding this election is more exciting than many sporting events. “Apathy can significantly shift the outcome of this election,” Aquanno said, noting this should be a wakeup call for people who view elections as a waste of time. He is predicting a minority government.

York Region staff and York Regional Police have set a record $450,000 goal for their 2015 United Way employee campaign. Prior to unveiling the ambitious target, a $52,000 increase on last year’s fundraising tally, York Region chairperson and CEO Wayne Emmerson briefed Wednesday’s standing room rally at the Newmarket regional administration centre on past performance. “For more than two decades, York Region and York Regional Police employees have raised more than $3.3 million to help local people in need,” he said. “But our work is not done. Poverty, hunger, abuse and people at risk still exist. “An investment in United Way is an investment in our community.” York Regional Police Deputy Chief and United Way campaign cochairperson André Crawford noted that while his officers are in the community 24/7, they rely heavily on the various non-profit agencies supported by United Way. “We value these organizations and the huge difference they make in our communities,” he said, noting Invest in People is the year’s slogan. “Remember, even a little can

mean a lot to a person in need.” MC Bruce Macgregor, York Region’s Chief Administrative Officer, said he’s confident the lofty goal will be attained. Last year, the employee initiative, led by payroll deductions, bake sales, baseball challenges and barbecues, surpassed the campaign goal of $440,000 by collecting $448,081.

‘You are what happens when refugees land in Toronto and York Region. That’s the power you have in the face of what’s happening in the world.’ York Region commissioner of finance and United Way campaign co-chairperson Bill Hughes said United Way has been alleviating suffering for decades. Still, many people in our neighbourhoods continue to suffer invisibly and in silence. “United Way agencies do real things for real people,” he said. “Every single person has worth and every little bit helps.” After administrators and politi-

port. You are what happens when refugees land in Toronto and York Region. That’s the power you have in the face of what’s happening in

the world.” To learn how you can support United Way Toronto and York Region, visit unitedwaytyr.com.

cians mustered enthusiasm, United Way Toronto and York Region resource development senior vicepresident Daniele Zanotti delivered the emotional crescendo. Employing his covetable meld of stand up, theatrics and anecdotal eloquence, Zanotti recalled his days as a university co-op student and meeting a newly arrived refugee from El Salvador. The man, his brother and sister had witnessed the murder of their parents. Zanotti met the siblings at the Newcomer Orientation Assistance and Hospitality Reception Centre in Toronto in the 1990s. He reminisced how, between his son’s recent hockey games at a Scarborough tournament, Zanotti took the lad and teammates to a Subway sandwich shop. There, two decades later, he was re-acquainted with the man who now owned the franchise. The stirring reunion underscored how United Way agencies helped the family not only survive, but thrive. The grateful shop owner thanked Zanotti, telling him he was a successful business owner, his brother an engineer and his sister a family law lawyer. “Fleeing hell was one thing,” he said. “Making it in heaven was another, thanks to United Way sup-

Local businesses now have a powerful tool to connect them to shoppers who are planning to buy their products. On behalf of Metroland Media, the Stouffville Sun-Tribune and its sister papers in York Region, Pulse Research surveyed readers and collected in-depth information about what shoppers are planning to buy in the next 12 months. John Marling, founder of Pulse Research, described Pulse of Metroland as a prospecting tool that “gives the advertising department a direct barometer of the advertising needs of businesses. This tells you what your readers are going to buy and they’re going to be buying it locally.” The purchasing intentions of Metroland readers were collected through a Pulse survey in July and compiled in August. And while Marling noted many surveys, such as federal election polls, pull data from a sampling of between 800 and 1,600 people, more than 4,300 of our readers completed the 40-minute online survey, providing an extremely reliable sampling. The data from 4,356 respondents applies to 516 business categories “from plumbers to financial planners,” he said. The results offer interesting details about Metroland readers: • 3.2 per cent plan to have laser eye surgery • 5.6 per cent say they will go to an audiology

clinic • 10.5 per cent need an electrician • 16.9 per cent are planning to call a handyman • 42.3 per cent say they will shop in a bookstore • 24.9 per cent say they will start using or will change their auto insurance provider • 13.5 per cent plan to have shoes repaired • 8.7 per cent need a tune-up or repair for a bicycle • 4.9 per cent are planning to buy a bed for their dog Ian Proudfoot, publisher and vice-president of Metroland Media in Toronto, York, Simcoe and Muskoka, is thrilled to support local businesses through this new corporate initiative. “This is extremely valuable information for our local business owners who rely on us to reach their customers — our readers,” Proudfoot said. “Knowing how many people in the market are ready and willing to spend money locally gives us the knowledge to guide our advertisers in the right direction.” Pulse of Metroland offers detailed information to businesses in each category. For example, those readers planning to shop at a furniture store in the next 12 months indicated they were intending to buy living room furniture, a mattress, area rug or other items.

BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

When an animal refuses to eat or drink, there is something wrong. For Alexandra Heilbron, it was colic in her 21-year-old pony, which was caused by bad teeth not enabling him to chew properly. Heilbron was feeding second cut hay because it is softer, but it was still too hard for Cody to chew and he ended up swallowing some of it whole, she said. Quite often the administration of mineral oil or another type of laxative can be used to help dislodge the impaction, but Cody’s case was so severe he required surgery. In late February, the pony was rushed to the veterinarian who discovered huge impactions of fecal matter in his small colon and enough undigested hay to fill half a large garbage pail in his large colon. This also caused his organs to be displaced. His bladder was so crammed he could not hold water, which caused him to stop drinking, she said. The 13.3 hand-high pony Heilbron bought 10 years ago weighs in around 800 to 850 pounds when healthy. Prior to surgery, he was about 750 pounds. Post-op, Cody dropped down to less than 700 pounds and right now, he is back up to 700 pounds. “He’s back to being his curious, mischievous, sweet self,” according to Heilbron. But now he lives at a new Whitchurch-Stouffville barn that can attend to his special needs, such as feeding Cody soaked concentrated feed four times a day. He will likely never be able to eat hay again, only grass, which means

Cody will have to stay in a paddock alone, Heilbron said. With Cody’s health on the rebound, Heilbron’s focus has shifted to paying for the surgery and much needed dental work that still must to be completed. The surgery itself cost $10,000. Despite the price tag, Heilbron, who is a senior editor at Tribute Entertainment Group, never contemplated putting Cody, who is only halfway through his life, down. “He’s my best friend. I’m not married, don’t have kids, so he’s everything to me,” she said. Insurance and some donations helped pay for a portion of the surgery. Heilbron even sold some of her riding equipment and clothes online to help cover the cost.

gofundme.com account Heilbron is also looking for parttime weekend work. Heilbron has also turned to GoFundMe.com to raise the $7,000 needed to cover the rest of Cody’s surgery and upcoming dental work. Even before the online fundraiser was launched, equine lovers and friends were donating to Heilbron and offering up any kind of assistance they could. “This is really, really sweet of people,” she said. So far, she has raised $510. As an extra incentive, various equine-related businesses have offered up items and services in return for donations. For example, a $10 donation will get you a button with Cody’s photo on it; $20 nets the donor a thank you card with a photo of Cody. Other items include a personalized stall plate ($35) and full horse imaging session ($50), to name a few.

“When we have the ability to help others, we pay it back,” she said. Ever since Heilbron was a little girl, she wanted a horse. She never got one. But she did take lessons. In 2003, Heilbron moved to Mussleman’s Lake near the former Wagon Wheel Ranch, where Cody was a trail pony for children. Because of his high energy and tendency to spook and bolt, he wasn’t safe enough to use for the public, so he just hung around in a paddock before Heilbron came along, she said. “I trained him using gentle Alexandra Heilbron and her pony Cody in better times. methods to listen to what I was asking him so he would be a safe horse to ride and with some give and take, we started to make a good team. When the ranch closed, that left a lot of horses without an owner, including Cody. I bought Cody because he was already bonded to me and I wanted to give him a good life with one owner,” she said. In 2008, the pair started competing in show jumping competitions. “We only do schooling shows because they’re not expensive, no Don’t miss out on your opportunity to pick up your Advance All Day Bracelet pressure and just a lot of fun,” she available until September 30th, while quantities last. $33 ea. including HST. said.

LEARN. CONNECT. REJUVENATE.

LAST WEEK: Monday: Toronto Junior Canadiens 7 vs. Stouffville Spirit 6. Spirit record: 0-1-0-0-0. COMING UP: Friday vs. Markham Royals at Centennial Arena, 7 p.m. Saturday vs. Milton IceHawks at Stouffville Arena, 7:30 p.m. If the Stouffville Spirit could replay parts of their Ontario Junior Hockey League regular season opening game against the visiting Toronto Junior Canadiens Monday, it would be the first half and one costly play in the third period. It was during that span when the Toronto Junior Canadiens took full advantage of what opportunities came their way and skated off with a 7-6 win over the Spirit. Toronto jumped out to a 4-1 lead after the opening 20 minutes and were up by as much as 6-1 just past the midway mark of the game. While the Spirit could easily have folded their tent, they battled back before the end of the second stanza, when Cameron Lintner and rookie forward Jack Varga scored within a nine-second span late in the period to cut their deficit to 6-3 entering the second intermission. Receiving an infusion of energy from those two goals, the Spirit opened the scoring in the third period on a goal by Chris Brill-Morgan to trail 6-4. But Toronto scored what would be the game-winning goal when Andrew Pucci knocked in a rebound left by rookie netminder Kyle Pescador after he had made the initial save. The Spirit though, continued to battle back and with a two-man advantage, got a goal from James Mense-Dietrich to claw their way back to 7-5. With Pescador pulled for an extra attacker in the late going, the Spirit got a goal by team captain Spencer Roberts to get back to within a goal before regulation time expired. Rookie forward Jonathan Yaremko scored the first goal of the season for the Spirit early in the first period after Toronto took a quick 1-0 lead just 61 seconds after the opening face-off. Both clubs directed 32 shots on net. INSIDER: The Spirit dealt forwards Nick Thomakos and Liam O’Dette to the Markham Royals for cash Tuesday. Thomakos, 18, was the club’s second-leading scorer last year. Burrows had already traded another top scorer, Tyson Bruce, to Markham.

Yesterday, the Spirit dealt second-year forward Brock Traill to the Lindsay Muskies for cash. With veteran goalkeepers Aaron Taylor and Conor McCollum on the injured list for an indefinite period, Spirit general manager Kenny Burrows hinted the funds might be used to acquire an experienced netminder. The Spirit welcomed forward Zach Roberts to their roster after he was released from the Owen Sound Attack. A Stouffville resident and nephew of former NHL forward Gary Roberts and younger brother of Spirit captain Spencer Roberts, Zach was a fifth-round pick of Owen Sound in the 2015 Ontario Hockey League draft and saw duty in Monday’s opener. Also scheduled to return to the Spirit is forward Kyle Thomas, who was released from the North Bay Battalion. Thomas was an eighth round selection. Kris Hamlin, a forward obtained by the club in a recent trade with the Markham Royals along with forward Otis Goldman, has returned to Thunder Bay and is debating his hockey future. Hamlin was recently cut by the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL. Should Hamlin elect to remain at home, Burrows said the club would get another player from the Royals as compensation. Still at OHL camps is veteran defenceman Greg Allen, who is auditioning for a spot with the Oshawa Generals. Forward Alex Gilmour is still with the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League after being their 12th round pick in the league’s draft. GENERALLY SPEAKING: “I think we were a little nervous,” said Spirit head coach Jeff Perrin on his club’s slow start out of the gate. “And we weren’t moving our feet. We were doing a bit of puck watching.” Acknowledging that Pescador was placed in a difficult situation with Taylor and McCollum on the sidelines battling injuries, Perrin felt he did as well as he could considering the circumstances. “I’m certain though there were a couple of rebounds here and there that he would have wanted back. But it was a tough spot for him to be in,” he said. While disappointed with the loss, Perrin found some positive aspects which he hopes will carry over into Friday’s game against the neighbouring Markham Royals, who relocated after being in Hamilton. “The biggest thing was that we did not give up and we got better as the game went on, where we didn’t give up many scoring chances. We made a game of it,” he said. Along with that, Perrin was pleased with the effort provided by some of the rookies. “They all made their typical rookie mistakes, but they competed hard and they all have good speed,” he said.

Possibly the most frequently mentioned way to save energy is to replace incandescent light bulbs with fluorescent bulbs. The fluorescents may cost a lot more, but a fluorescent bulb that might cost $7 more should last 5-10 times as long and save $25-$75 worth of electricity in the process. Some may find their blue hue less cozy than the warm glow of an incandescent, but it does mean money is being saved.

MARKHAM/UNIONVILLE: 905.940.4180


Stouffville squad captures 2nd straight fastball crown Make it two in a row for the Stouffville Mennos. A pair of Richmond Hill Men’s Fastball League championships to be precise. The Mennos captured their second straight league title after they defeated the Richmond Hill

Ale Crew 4-3 to capture the bestof-five final series three games to one at Richmond Hill Town Park last week. Greg Dalgarno threw the first five innings and fanned nine batters, while giving up four hits and three walks Tuesday. Jay Nesbitt piched the final two innings to earn the win, striking out four and giving up two hits and

three bases on balls. While elated to win a second straight league championship and to reach the league final in each of their three years in the league, Mennos head coach Wayne Dalgarno acknowledged this year’s title presented a far greater challenge. Part of the proof was evident during the regular season, which saw the Mennos finish in second

place with an 11-5-2 record, one point behind the Richmond Hill Ale Crew. “Although there were fewer teams in the league, the calibre of play was significantly higher,” he said. “Opposing pitchers were much higher quality than last year and many of the regular season and playoff games were low scoring.”

In assessing their victory, Dalgarno attributed it to a combination of solid defence and timely hitting. “We played solid defence and got timely hitting from everywhere in the lineup. We did not have any one overpowering hitter, but got key hits when we needed them.” – Michael Hayakawa

Al Clay spoke from heart, with smile Heidi RiedneR

hriedner@yrmg.com

lfred Joseph John Clay was the type of man who said what needed to be said — but always with a smile on his face and love in his heart. A gentle giant in pint-size form with a ready smile, wise, kind eyes and wry humour that appreciated how crazy life could be sometimes, Al was the type of man who cherished most the times surrounded by family and laughter. For 38 years, that included his wife, Christina, by his side and the many friends throughout his life he considered and welcomed as part of his own family. “He always seemed to turn any gathering into a three-ring circus,” his eldest daughter, Karen Slaunwhite, said with pride and warmth. “Dad always loved a good party.” Whether through word or action, Al demonstrated leadership, wisdom, love and understanding. It’s what made him a hero to his family, including son, David, and youngest daughter, Sandra Tout. “He was one of the strongest men I know. He put up a good fight. Right to the end, he lived with dignity, determination, strength, love and humour,” Slaunwhite says, with the love only a daughter has for her daddy, no

matter what the age, but also with the strength of conviction. He imparted those qualities on his children and grandchildren — Emma, Samantha, Brianna and Clay, who had the “coolest” Baba around. “Family was everything to him and he unselfishly lived his life for us,” Slaunwhite says, adding her father welcomed his children’s spouses — Gail, Dave and Jeff — with open arms and treated them like they were his own, whether it was to praise them or give them heck about something. “Dad would always say what needed to be said,” she says with a smile, a slight upturn of the eyebrow and direct gaze that would make her father proud — and giggle. But those qualities also made him a cherished “dad” to an extended family that is left heartbroken after his death July 16, 2015 at the age of 80. As the owner of Sandlyn Farms in Baldwin after a 34-year career with the Toronto Star, where he worked as the superintendent of the photo engraving department until his “retirement”, Al made everyone who stepped foot on the property feel like one of his own. “Our dad taught us to compete hard, with fairness and intelligence,” says Slaunwhite. “Not only was he proud of Sandra’s riding

accomplishments, but he also loved to cheer on Emma, Brianna and any other member of our barn family in the show ring.” He also welcomed anyone at his table. You’d actually be hard pressed to tally the actual amount of teas and good conversations shared at the Clay kitchen table. And you couldn’t miss the affectionate and good-humoured twinkle in his eye and slow-spreading smile that lit up his face and the room when he was about to drop a joke or a wry comment with easy wit and genuine warmth and affection — followed by one of the best laugh’s around. But there was also a tower of strength and rock centre of a family under that gentle giant, no matter what. Even with his health failing during the past year, Al managed to haul around his horse trailer, never missing a horse show or even a riding lesson at the farm. The “big guy” loved his family, friends, horses and tractor, touching all who had the pleasure of knowing him. “Throughout our lives, our dad demonstrated by his actions how to behave. He led the way for us. In our eyes, you will never meet a greater man.” That, however, is precisely who Al Clay was, and remains in the hearts of so many people.

Celebrate a life well lived!

“Adored by children, universally respected and an inspiration to her peers, Mrs. McCluskey was a tireless volunteer, quick to deflect the praise heaped on her.”

Al Clay was a pillar of strength for his family.
