Rookie councillors suggest term limits

snowy skate

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Veteran city politicians will be asked to consider pulling the trigger on their own careers at the next council meeting. Rookie councillors Mary-Margaret McMahon (Beaches-East York ) and Jaye Robinson (Don Valley West) came forward earlier this month asking for a report on a three-term limit for all city politicians. That was as the city’s Executive Committee looked at creating term limits for councillors serving on city agencies, boards and commissions. The Executive Committee stopped short of absolute term limits. But Robinson – who sits on the executive committee – and McMahon argue that term limits might just be the cure for what ails an increasingly angry and dysfunctional council. “There is quite a lot of baggage here,” said McMahon, who campaigned in 2010 on only staying two terms on council and bringing the idea of term limits forward for >>>VET, page 10

Talks on transit to benefit future riders

A

s Toronto’s Feeling Congested? campaign shifts into its next stage, Torontonians eager to see an improved transit system throughout the city and its surrounding regions must understand the size and complexity of the challenge. To be blunt, the process of enabling criticallyneeded transit improvements is going to get harder as the process advances. Having the public give feedback and direction – which happened earlier this month – is a critical component to this process. That meaningful methods of paying for transit infrastructure were at the heart of these consultations is important. Community members must understand that we will only get the transit we are willing to pay for. But ultimately it will be the leaders we elect who will be entrusted with the potentially difficult decisions that will get shovels in the ground. These leaders may be in a position where they have to weigh what’s best for a community versus what’s politically expedi- our view ent. Feeling But that’s one of the reasons why the public feedback part is Congested so important – that we articulate what it is we want and that we to host panel are willing to pay for it. It is also important to keep discussions that momentum going. Early next month, the Feeling Congested? campaign is hosting a series of discussion panels. The first features Toronto’s chief planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, former Vancouver co-director of planning Larry Beasley, president and CEO of Toronto Board of Trade Carol Wilding, along with councillors Peter Milczyn (planning and growth committee chair) and Michael Thompson (economic development committee chair). It takes place Monday, March 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Jane Mallett Theatre at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. It’s vital to get involved now any way you can. While this focus on transportation is looking not only at the needs of today, but also those decades from now, some big things are happening in the coming months. Last week we heard Metrolinx chair Robert Prichard say a special board meeting is being planned for May 27 where the investment strategy to pay for $34 billion worth of projects will be released. These projects include the eastern portion of a downtown relief subway line. The realization of some of these projects may be decades away, but the potential decisions putting them in motion are fast approaching. We need to be ready. newsroom

Shaving land transfer tax a big fight

B

arring anymore run-ins with the law, it looks as though Mayor Rob Ford has at least one serious fight ahead of him as he attends to the last two years of his term: the land transfer tax. The mayor has made it clear he would like very much to shave 10 per cent off the tax on real estate transactions. The plan is a dilution of his 2010 election promise to scrap the tax entirely – something even the tax-cutting Ford soon realized would be financially impossible. The tax brings in in the neighbourhood of $350 million a year, and since Ford’s predecessor David Miller introduced it, has become a crucial element in balancing the budget. The 10 per cent cut, on the other hand, is a battle the mayor might conceivably win. Held against budgets that run in the neighbourhood of $10 billion, $35 million can exist in a margin of error – and such a cut would just be added into the other pressures the city’s budget committee and council have to deal with each year.

THE CITY

david nickle

The real battle will be convincing council to support adding that $35 million to the tally. Ford’s former budget chief Mike Del Grande, as staunch a fiscal conservative as the mayor in most respects, was deeply skeptical about the plan. His replacement, Frank Di Giorgio, is comparatively cheerful at the prospect of at least looking. But he’s unwilling to make any cut to the tax without finding some offsetting revenue. And the rest of council? Over the past three budgets, council as a whole has been unwilling to follow the mayor and his agenda too far down the road to privation. With an election coming up, will 23 councillors jump onto the land transfer tax bandwagon as readily as they did in 2010, when they supported the freshlyelected mayor’s plan to scrap the vehicle registra-

tion tax? There’s very little percentage that they will do so. Unlike the vehicle registration tax, which all cardriving voters had to pay every year they continued to own a car, the land transfer tax is relatively invisible. Property-holding Torontonians pay it every time they move house. But that tax is rolled into other costs of buying and selling and moving – and once the move is done, the tax doesn’t rear its head again until the next move. Which means for most Torontonians in the 2014 election, it won’t be top of mind. Given that, shaving 10 per cent off in the 2014 budget will take an enormous amount of political capital from the mayor’s office – more than David Miller used to get it installed in the first place. It may take all that Ford has at this point in his mandate. It will likely take even more. n D a v i d Ni c k l e T h e Mirror’s City Hall columnist. His column appears every Thursday.

To the editor: Re: Cartoon, page 4, Jan. 31. The cartoon commenting on the poor functioning of both minority and majority governments brilliantly highlights the problem with our current electoral system. The big problem with a minority government is that defeat of some legislation is taken as triggering a new election. Only when a fresh coalition cannot be formed is an election necessary. The other side of the coin is that our majority governments don’t actually represent the majority of the voters. Usually they only represent about 40 per cent. This means that legislation passed by parliament does not have the clear support of the electorate. The most popular class of electoral systems, proportional representation, ensures the elected representatives actually do reflect the way the people voted. Bills passed by parliament really do enjoy the support of the representatives of the majority of the people. If we followed the example of most countries and switched to some form of proportional representation, a cartoon complaining about the problems of both majority and minority governments would not be needed.

Tara Hatherly thatherly@insidetoronto.com Beach resident Michelle Monteith is hitting the stage to help Tarragon Theatre celebrate Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch. Presented by Tarragon Theatre, A Hannah Moscovitch Double Bill, co-produced by Theatre Crisis and Theatre PANIK, runs until March 24 at 30 Bridgman Ave. Monteith stars in Little One, billed as a “stylish lullaby-nightmare thriller.” Monteith stars alongside Joe Cobden in the Natasha Mytnowych-directed play. Reworked since its 2011 debut, the play follows two adopted siblings as they try to cope with their past and each other. “I think Hannah always has an interesting perspective on the relationship between two people, so in this case it’s very complicated, humourous, sometimes a little spooky and a little creepy,” Monteith said. “But there’s always a lighter

aspect to the darker side of life, and I think it’s entertaining. Her work is always entertaining, even in spite of the dark subject matter.” The award-winning Moscovitch is Canada’s most-produced young playwright, known for her edgy and thought-provoking style. “I think she always takes a very honest look at what it means to be human,” said Monteith. “I think that her plays take an honest look at the relationships between people, and that there’s a humour and a tenderness with which they’re portrayed that I think speaks to people. People can see themselves in the characters that she writes about, and she always finds a way of making maybe unlikable people likeable... She really knows how to walk the line of telling a truthful story, but making it entertaining and complicated, which isn’t easy to do.” Monteith lives in the Beach with her husband and nine-month-old daughter.

Originally from Scotland, she grew up in British Columbia, moving to Toronto twelve years ago. She’s acted professionally for almost 15 years, after switching gears to pursue her passion. “I originally went to the University of Victoria, originally to do social work, but I soon switched over into the theatre program there,” she explained. “I started (acting) for fun in high school. I was an extremely shy person, and I think I was always drawn to the performing arts, but felt too shy. I had to choose between taking band or taking drama, and I didn’t play an instrument, so I went into drama and I just found that although I was shy, there was a freedom in getting to say someone else’s words; I didn’t feel quite so shy doing that.” She enjoys researching characters, learning their psychology and behaviour, and pushing her own limitations. “I find that fascinating, what makes people tick,” she

said. “I’m always looking for interesting roles, complex characters, maybe characters I haven’t played before. I like to challenge myself. I like to surprise myself with what I think I can’t do and try to do that.” After Little One finishes showing at Tarragon Theatre, Monteith will hit the road with the play, before returning to perform in Soulpepper Theatre Company’s production of Angels in America. Little One runs until March 17, followed March 19 to 24 by Roseneath Theatre’s production of In This World, a complex exploration of adolescence, race, class and sex, directed by Andrew Lamb and starring Meilie Ng and Oyin Oladejo. Running to March 24, the Moscovitch mini-festival also features Other People’s Children, an unsettling drama directed by Paul Lampert, starring Niki Landau, Elisa Moolecherry and Gray Powell.

Elizabeth Byrnes takes 55 Division reins

East-ender plans to increase communication with residents, social media presence JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com

H

aving just taken the reins, new 55 Division police Supt. Elizabeth Byrnes has already come up with a set of priorities including increasing communication with residents and helping to bring her division further into the digital age. Byrnes is a veteran of Toronto Police Services, having cut her teeth in 43 Division before moving to 42 and 41 divisions. She began working with the Sex Crimes Unit in 1999, working her way up to detective sergeant in 2001. From there, she became an inspector at 52 Division before returning to the Sex Crimes Unit as a staff inspector. From February 2012 until she took over as superintendent of 55 Division from outgoing Supt. Frank Bergen in January, Byrnes was the superintendent and unit commander of Communication Services with the police. When the opportunity arose to apply for her current position, she jumped at it. “This was a great opportunity for me,” she said. “I’m an eastend person, so this is an area I frequent and socialize in.” She added, however, that it is also a great division, serving a diverse group of residents who are already connected and keep each other in touch through Facebook, Twitter and other social media. “One of my goals is to try to connect to the residents,” she said. “There are always great opportunities to connect with residents through the media, but by expanding our social media (presence) we’ll be able to blast messages out right away.” Byrnes, who was born and

raised in Scarborough, noted that ramping up communication was especially important with a number of new condos going up in former industrial areas in the division. Unlike residents in the cozy, single-family neighbourhoods in 55 Division, condo-dwellers are often more likely to keep to themselves. “One of the best crime prevention tools we can have is neighbours knowing neighbours,” she said. “We want to get people to know each other

due to an underlying issue and she wants to root out what that issue could be, whether it might be drugs or some other social factor. “We’ve had the occasional drug seizure, but I’m not aware of any sort of big systemic or identifiable areas to focus on here just now.” Though a newcomer to the division, Byrnes has already connected with it, making her all the more dedicated to ensuring it gets the policing and support it needs to reduce crime.

she hopes to continue with the help and support of the officers at the division. While she has only been on the job since January, Byrnes already has a good idea of the challenges police face in 55 Division. She pointed out that crime is low in the area, but there are some definite trends. “There are a lot of thefts – autos or things from people’s property,” she said. “I want us to drill down into who’s doing these types of crimes.” She added that property crimes usually occur

Vet councillors ‘still have a contribution to make’: Minnan-Wong >>>from page 1 debate. “It was quite a surprise to most of us rookies. With term limits, that would dissipate. You wouldn’t have that with fresh new councillors coming in.” Robinson agreed, saying her experience is that many of the older councillors have become entrenched – in more ways than one. “I’ve only been around two years but along with a lot of the newbies, what we have observed is a very divisive and polarized council,” said Robinson. “We have been able to get a few things done in two years, but imagine how council could be.” Robinson said she believed coun-

cillors who have made a career of politics have brought old feuds and stale approaches to the floor of council – and in so doing, gummed up the works. “There are trenches that are deep, deep trenches at city hall,” she said. “We had a fairly healthy turnover this last election and I think that’s had a positive impact on council. “The hope would be that (a term limit) might inspire higher voter turnout and more engagement if there was more opportunity to participate in the process for more people.” Robinson said three four-year terms should be enough for anyone

with ambitions to reform city government or mark achievements for their community. A calling - not a career “There are too many councillors who stay here for a long time,” she said. “This is a calling – not a career. I think city hall could benefit from fresh faces and more diversity on council.” Robinson admitted with more than half of councillors already having served three terms, the policy change could be a tough sell. Councillors from both sides of the political spectrum bore that

out. Don Valley East Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, who sits on the executive committee alongside Robinson, called the idea simplistic. “I don’t think you can use that broad a brush,” said Minnan-Wong, who has been on council since the early 1990s. “I think there are a number of veteran councillors who still have a significant contribution to make. And in the last election we had a 25 per cent turnover at council – so the public and the voter is surprisingly adept at identifying a councillor’s best-before date.” Don Valley East Councillor

Shelley Carroll said term limits for councillors would do nothing so much as create a pressure to bring political parties into municipal government. Party system could follow “If you put in place term limits, a party system follows close behind because party-aligned people start thinking, if you’re leaving after every second term how do we maintain the work that we’re doing in a certain way?” Carroll said. “Pretty soon you have a grassroots movement saying, let’s have political parties.”


For the 45th year in a row, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario is organizing its annual Free CA Tax Clinics, which will be offered at various times and locations across the province. Chartered Accountants (CAs) will prepare tax returns for those in low-income brackets until March 31, 2013. Free CA Tax Clinics are now held across Ontario from Feb. 19 until the end of March. To qualify for this free tax return assistance, total household income must be less than $30,000 with dependents or

less than $20,000 without dependents. For information on clinics in the Greater Toronto Area, call 416-9621841, ext. 462 or visit the Institute website at: http:// www.icao.on.ca In 1969, the Institute first launched the Free CA Tax Clinic program, which was designed to serve low-income people who need help preparing tax returns. The Free CA Tax Clinics help these people receive much-needed tax credits and refunds. Since the program was initiated, thousands of Ontarians have

benefited from the volunteer tax-time help of the CAs. Today, the program is an ongoing partnership between more than 200 community service groups that host the clinics and close to 1,800 volunteer Chartered Accountants and CA students. People who meet the requirements and have booked appointments are asked to bring a copy of their last filed return, notice of assessment, social insurance number and all tax information slips. Tax returns will be completed on site at the clinic.

Drop off paint cans, electronics at The Beer Store LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com The first of its kind in the province, The Beer Store officially opened its ‘Recycling Plus’ depot that provides a one-stop drop-off spot for empty alcohol containers, paint cans and household electronics last Friday. Located in the Dupont

Street and Symington Avenue area, on Campbell Avenue across from The Beer Store, the depot – a pilot project – was initiated in co-operation with Stewardship Ontario and Sims Recycling Solutions. An idea that arose from Beer Store employees, Recycling Plus is an evolution of the beverage distributor’s deposit-return programs.

“Ninety one per cent of all beer and 80 per cent of all wine, spirit and cooler containers are brought back,” said Ted Moroz, president, of The Beer Store during a grand-opening media event, at the depot at 299 Campbell Ave. “We’re able to divert half a million metric tones of packaging from landfill.” Now i n a d d i t i o n t o

beer and wine bottles, Torontonians can get rid of a range of electronics, batteries and paint cans. Moroz called the depot a “true one-stop shop where environmentally concerned people can bring back their waste” keeping “potentially hazardous waste” from landfill. “People of Ontario are thirsty for practical ways to keep waste out of landfill,” said Minister of Environment Jim Bradley. “I hope this program will pave the way for more initiatives like this.” Stewardship Ontar io through its Orange Drop Program (which recycles municipal household hazardous and special waste materials) will oversee the collection and safe processing of batteries, paints, stains and coatings while Sims Recycling Solutions will process the returned electronic waste. Since its inception in 2008, the Orange Drop Program has kept more than 72,000 tones of household hazardous waste from landfills and >>>Recycling, page 17

Give drivers a break with parking permit switch over, Fletcher says CITY HALL The unofficial grace period car owners with parking permits have to swap their cars from one side of the street to the other could be made official if council goes along with a notice of motion by Ward 30 Councillor Paula Fletcher. The motion, coming before today’s meeting of Toronto Council, is intended to put a stop to the practise that some parking enforcement officers have of waiting for the monthly changeover, requiring drivers to move their cars from one

side of the street to the other, and ticketing those drivers who are either a minute too early, or a minute too late, in making the change. Informally, drivers can expect not to be ticketed within three hours of the changeover time – either before or after. “But it’s informal, and when something’s informal then it just depends on the officer or the time, or where they’re at with their quota, and it certainly leads to a lot of frustration on the part of everybody,” Fletcher said. “Citizens are getting ticketed for a couple of minutes over the limit.

It’s just not good.” Fletcher said she’s had calls from constituents who’ve slept in a hour later than normal on a Saturday and gone out to find a $40 ticket. “They already pay quite a bit for parking on the street and they don’t get a break often,” she said. The motion by Fletcher – seconded by Trinity-Spadina Councillor Mike Layton – would make that grace period official. – David Nickle

■ Ford Apologies

Mayor Rob Ford has cleared one

more potential run-in with the city’s integrity commissioner. In a report, Integrity Commissioner Janet Leiper said Ford had apologized to Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown, over remarks he and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, had made on their radio program in 2012. The brothers had taken McKeown to task for commissioning a report titled “Road to Health: Improving Walking and Cycling in Toronto.” Mayor Ford said on his April 29 radio program that McKeown’s salary was “an embarrassment,” and

suggested he would straighten the situation out. Leiper had originally reported to council in the fall that she believed Mayor Ford had violated city council’s code of conduct by disparaging McKeown’s professional reputation publicly. The matter was put over until the decision on Ford’s conflict of interest charges was rendered. On Monday, McKeown reported to Leiper that Mayor Ford had apologized and McKeown had accepted the apology. As a result, no sanction will be applied. Doug Ford had apologized to Dr. McKeown earlier.

‘Jamaica, until recently, did not have a single pediatric oncologist ... while SickKids alone has 20 pediatric oncologists.’

A new initiative will see SickKids Hospital taking its top-of-the-line health care for children with pediatric cancer and serious blood disorders down south. Through a partnership with six Caribbean nations, SickKids doctors will be seeking to improve health outcomes for children in Barbados, the Bahamas, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The Caribbean-SickKids Paediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Project came about because some of SickKids’ top doctors are natives of Caribbean countries. ‘Born in Jamaica’ “Our former head of cancer and blood disorders, Dr. Victor Blanchette, was brought up in Barbados and Dr. Upton Allen, the head of infectious diseases here, was born in Jamaica,” said Dr. Stanley Zlotkin, SickKids chief of global child health. “They have leadership roles here and over the last

couple of years, it’s become apparent to them that the survival and recovery rates in the Caribbean are much lower than they are here.” Zlotkin noted children treated for leukemia at SickKids have an 80 to 90 per cent chance of successfully

battling the disease, a number that drops to 50 per cent in the Caribbean. The Caribbean-SickKids Paediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Project will allow SickKids doctors to provide training to medical professionals from the Caribbean

nations and offer ongoing telemedicine support. Blanchette estimated the program could help with the diagnosis and treatment of 75 cases of newly diagnosed leukemia or lymphoma each year, with potential cure rates as high as 90 per cent once proper medical equipment and training are in place. He added since many children in the Caribbean are of African descent, those nations may see higher incidences of certain cancers such as Burkitt’s lymphoma. By simply offering training, SickKids promises to boost the chances of recovery for children in the selected nations,

which lack the resources and knowledge in dealing with childhood cancer and blood disorders. “Jamaica, until recently, did not have a single pediatric oncologist,” said Ted Garrard, SickKids foundation president and CEO. “Trinidad and Tobago has only one pediatric oncologist, while SickKids alone has 20 pediatric oncologists.” Dr. Michelle Reece-Mills, who was trained at SickKids, became Jamaica’s first – and to date, its only – fully trained physician specializing exclusively in children’s cancer and blood disorders. $8-million target The SickKids Foundation has already raised about $2 million for the project, with an overall target of raising $8 million over the next five years. Most of the funding will go directly to the Caribbean nations. “We want to make sure each facility has telemedicine facilities, computers where we can see each other on the screen,” Zlotkin said. “We’ll also be updating the labs down there to make sure

they have the best equipment they can.” The foundation is currently seeking additional funding from partners looking to help improve the healthcare system for children with cancer and serious blood disorders in the Caribbean. “We’re looking to the community for philanthropic support,” Garrard said. “Whether that’s Canadian companies that do business in the Caribbean, members of the (Caribbean) diaspora or people who just want to make a difference, we think this is something they’ll want to support.” The program is slated to run for five years with an end goal of ensuring children living in the six Caribbean countries receive the same quality of care as children treated for cancer and blood disorders at SickKids. “Our success will be when we leave the program because the survival and recovery rates are as high there as they are here,” Zlotkin said. n For more information on the initiative, visit www. sickkidsfoundation.com/ caribbean

Get drawing and storytelling to create Pan Am mascot by March 8 There’s still time to create a mascot for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. Steve Wallace, vice president of brand activation for

the TO2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, said his office receives about 10 entries a day. So far, more than 100 entries have been received. “It’s always fun to see

them,” he said. The contest is open to teams of children and youth aged 16 and younger. Teams, made up of two to six members, can be budding artists,

storytellers, mascot researchers and colouring experts. The mascot could be an animal, inanimate object or even a space oddity. Whatever captures the excitement of the Games and the imagination of the public through fun, colourful and community spirit. Wallace’s office has received entries from as far away as Gatineau, Quebec, and even Tiny, Ontario. He said youth get excited when they hear the idea of creating a mascot. It just takes some pencil crayons and paper and they will get to work, he added. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of history,” Wallace said. Entries have been submitted by the Girl Guides of Canada Chill Fest Camp, Mme. Walsh’s Grade 4 class at Glen Park Public School in Stouffville and an entry from First Nations School of Toronto. The mascot is the official ambassador of the Games and will visit communities and schools throughout Ontario and Canada to welcome

athletes and visitors from 41 countries in 2015 and appear on signage and merchandise including collectible pins and plush toys. The top six designs will be chosen from a TO2015 panel and the young nominees will have a chance to work with a professional illustrator to bring their creations to life. The designs will then compete in a nationwide online voting

contest in the spring. Entries must be handdrawn with a 250-word mascot life story and be mailed by March 8. The winner will be announced Aug. 7. Top Canadian athletes and award-winning illustrators are hosting a series of workshops. For more details visit www. toronto2015mascot.ca
