Cheer on the runners Sunday Thousands of marathoners are set to wind their way through the city’s east end Sunday during the 23rd annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Kicking off at Toronto City Hall at Queen and Bay streets before heading north to Bloor Street East, down St. George and Bathurst streets and out to the western beaches, the marathon portion of the event will then wind its way through Riverdale and the port lands along Commissioners Street, Lake Shore Boulevard East and Eastern Avenue before crossing into the Beach community before wrapping up where it all began downtown. Race organizers have slightly altered this year’s route to include more of the city’s neighbourhoods. The most noticeable local change is the location of the Queen Street East turnaround, which will have runners turning back at Beech Avenue instead of at Neville Park Boulevard. This modification is designed to give area residents additional travel and parking options. Runners are still expected to arrive in the Beach-Riverdale community between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Motorists should note several local roads will be closed from 10 a.m. to about 2:30 p.m. to accommodate the marathon. This year, a dozen local charities/organizations have signed on to participate in the waterfront marathon’s annual Neighbourhood Challenge, a series of mini-festivals along the race route where community and >>>five, page 18

WoodGreen Community Services celebrated a special milestone Oct. 4 with the grand opening of its new Amica Helping Hands Recreation Space at 721 Broadview Ave., just south of Danforth Avenue. Part of the Health and Wellness Centre for Older Adults, the new room will offer a range of wellness services such as Nordic pole walking, tai chi, line dancing and other social and recreational activities for able-bodied seniors. The recently renovated space, which features new floors, doors, lights and audio-visual equipment as well as freshly painted walls and a new drop ceiling, was made possible through a $42,000 donation from Amica Helping Hands, a not-for-profit organization that raises funds to assist and support seniors in need. Wall mirrors will also be installed in the space in the near future. A colourful mural is also planned for the new “great hall” in the coming months. Colin Halliwell, chair of Amica Mature Lifestyles Inc., which operates 23 retirement residences across Canada, said the organization’s 10-year-old charitable arm – Amica Helping Hands – was looking for projects it could contribute to and WoodGreen’s new recreation room for seniors was a great fit. “We were looking for suitable >>>NEW, page 3

Performing Occupy Toronto relives experiences of movement Play will be performed Oct. 15 in St. James Park JOANNA LAVOIE jlavoie@insidetoronto.com On Oct. 15, 2011, dozens of protesters demonstrating and speaking out against a range of injustices they say are faced by 99 per cent of the population took over St. James Park at King and Jarvis streets. A year later, many of those same people will gather at the downtown east park to mark the first anniversary of the Occupy Toronto movement. More than two dozen emerging actors and crew members will also congregate at the green space to stage a verbatim-theatre genre play called Performing Occupy Toronto. The one-time, free presentation is set to begin at 7 p.m. at the park’s gazebo. A park-wide, pre-show installation featuring spoken word, dance, music, visual art and busking among other things, will get under way at 6 p.m. Written by Upper Beach resident Rosamund Small, Performing Occupy Toronto features the exact words of more than 100 people who occupied St. James Park in an effort to raise awareness about the social and economic inequality created

when wealth is concentrated among just one per cent of the population. Interested in income and equality issues for several years now, Small had made her way to the Occupy Toronto rally and subsequent occupation of St. James Park.

a lifelong east ender who started writing plays when she was a student at Rosedale School of the Arts (RHSA). “Injustice and unfairness are concepts that resonate with everyone around the world. I do think the Occupy movement has changed the conversation.” Last summer, Small, who has been involved with The Paprika Festival, an independent theatre festival for youth, for the last three years, worked with theatre mentor Andrew Kushnir to develop the script for her play. Mitchell Cushman directed a staged reading of the piece during the festival at the end of the summer of 2011. Performing Occupy Toronto was then picked up by Docket Theatre, a theatre company for emerging artists under 30, and staged it in June. “It was a crazy experience directing the play with such a large cast. It’s a lot of work helping so many actors find their voice,” said Llyandra Jones, who co-founded Docket Theatre alongside Small and a small group of friends/fellow RHSA graduates about five years ago. Since then, they’ve staged origi-

WORDS OF CRITICS While there, she interviewed a number of occupiers and recorded various general assemblies compiling enough information to put together a hour-long play based on real-life experiences. The production also includes words from Toronto police Chief Bill Blair, several councillors and critics of the Occupy movement. Currently in her third year studying theatre and sexual diversity studies at the University of Toronto, Small will serve as the narrator of her play’s Oct. 15 remount. More than half of the cast and crew members from Docket Theatre who participated in the June 2012 staging of Performing Occupy Toronto have come back to take part in the one-year anniversary show. “It’s a chance to relive the experiences of the occupiers,” said Small,

A number of affordable, fee-based programs and services for active older adults of all cultural backgrounds including blood pressure and blood glucose monitoring, foot care clinics, healthy eating/cooking networking sessions, and home safety workshops, are currently or will be run out of the new space. WoodGreen also operates adult day programming, including an enhanced day program for acute, frail and cognitive impaired seniors, at its 721 Broadview Ave. location.

Leslieville’s Matty Eckler Community Recreation Centre, at the corner of Pape Avenue and Gerrard Street East, will celebrate its grand re-opening Saturday afternoon. From 1 to 4 p.m., community members are invited to make their way to the local centre for an afternoon of fun activities including a free leisure swim from 2:30 to 4 p.m. and a barbecue.

nal plays each summer. Performing Occupy Toronto is the company’s first show being mounted during the year. “The timing was so appropriate and we’d always been interested in doing a site-specific piece. It’s a really unique experience for the cast and crew,” said Jones, who has lived near Coxwell and Danforth

avenues for the last three years and also serves as the company’s artistic director and director of Performing Occupy Toronto. ■ For details about the Oct. 15 presentation of Performing Occupy Toronto, visit http://on.fb.me/ QfO5YT or www.dockettheatre. com

There will also be face painting, games and crafts for the kids. All are welcome to attend. Last September, the City of Toronto closed the centre, at 953 Gerrard St. E., for a major upgrade, which included making the second floor wheelchair accessible, upgrading all mechanical and electrical systems, replacing the ceiling, refinishing the interior and installing

new pool lighting. The retrofit was done as part of the City of Toronto’s “State of Good Repair” program. Programming and services at the centre were temporarily relocated to nearby facilities while the work was being done. ■ For more information, call 415392-0750.

Reader talks privatization and meat

Saluting The Mirror’s newspaper carriers

Time and again the taxpayers, yes the people who pay the bills of this great city, are not asked, but told who, what, when, why and where. I am sick and tired of it. Metrolinx were supposed to take charge of the TTC expansion, but now it is back in the hands of the TTC. Does no one understand our problems? The whole system needs a major shake-up, and privatization should be front and centre.

T

his is International Newspaper Carrier Week. Around the world, boys and girls, men and women deliver critical community information in a timely fashion, whether it’s news or advertising flyers. We certainly appreciate the dedication of our newspaper carriers at The Mirror. Why would someone become a newspaper carrier? It’s a wonderful proving ground for a young person to develop life skills. It’s an excellent opportunity for an older carrier to earn money and feel satisfaction of a job well done while serving the community. Here are six experiences that our view benefit a carrier: • Responsibility: A newspaper Carriers bring carrier accepts the challenge of satisfying their customer news to the every single time they deliver a newspaper to a doorstep. Being a newspaper carrier means one community has a commitment to customer service – and learns quickly the importance of reaching the customer’s doorstep with the newspaper each and every time. • Handling money: For many carriers, having a newspaper route means the first time having a bank account. This develops yet another key life skill in a youth. • Small business sense: The better customer service, the more smiles from customers. Miss a delivery and you deal with the complaint. A good carrier generally benefits with more tips from customers, too! • Confidence and sense of achievement: Being a carrier means tangible achievement every time a route is delivered. Every thank you from a customer teaches a carrier good work is rewarded. Knowing you deliver your route on time every time gives a carrier confidence and satisfaction of knowing a job inside out and doing it well. • Discipline: Residents wait for their newspaper. Calls for missed deliveries come in minutes after the time a customer usually gets their newspaper. The discipline developed through delivering a newspaper carries over into discipline in other life tasks. • Understanding community: Your community newspaper is your window to community life. A carrier brings that life to your door. As a carrier, you get to know the people on the route and that brings a neighbourhood community a little closer together. So being a newspaper carrier is much more than simply taking a wagon through streets to put pieces of paper on the doorstep. It’s ensuring a product that adds value to life in the community gets to the people of the community. We salute our newspaper carriers and wish them much sunshine as they deliver their newspapers and flyers this week. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Many people, especially politicians, are chastising this and that group for Canada’s tainted beef instead waiting for the findings. Why are there no fast food restaurant closures? They are consumers of ground beef. Yes, all of the news agencies are at fault for not investigating. Did we dispose of any meat products? Certainly not. As long as the product is cooked properly there is no problem, just ask the experts. W.D. Adamson

Council embarrassed itself with bad behaviour It’s not quite fair to say Toronto council utterly disgraced itself last week as it dealt with the devastating report by Toronto Ombudsman Fiona Crean on the city’s flawed and hamstrung public appointments process. At the same time, if this council were your parents, you would have done everything possible to avoid bringing your fiancé home for Thanksgiving dinner this year. Faced with a report that sharply critiqued both the mayor’s office and some councillors who sit on the civic appointments committee, a small but significant rump of the ruling party smeared muck over the entire institution. Crean’s report said the mayor’s office had interfered in the 2011 civic appointments process to the point city staff were

unable to do a fair job. It found the mayor’s staff had attempted to force staff to boycott a newspaper not in the mayor’s favour and to remove any mention of diversity from city advertisements. The report said in one case, a potential appointee to a board had a conflict of interest and when staff attempted to deal with it, an unnamed councillor, since identified as Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti, threatened staff members in a closeddoor meeting. The response from Mammoliti and some others was classic.

Mammoliti began the debate by questioning Crean’s political neutrality. When this provoked an overly angry response from Councillor Gord Perks, which Perks later apologized for, Mammoliti huffed about the sorts of violent acts he might perform on his out-of-line colleague. Mammoliti explained it wasn’t so much Crean’s neutrality as that of the rest of city staff that was the problem, then came back and accused the ombudsman of being deliberately provocative. Councillor Frances Nunziata, the speaker of council whose role is to maintain civility, was chair of the committee at the time of the threatening behaviour the report cited. She nearly brought Councillor Janet Davis to tears after she implied that

an unsubstantiated complaint she’d made about Davis’ conduct to the city’s integrity commissioner, in fact indicated Davis had tried to influence the process too. Budget chief Mike Del Grande had the good sense to throw up his hands, leave the table. It was finally left to Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday to try and bring back civility and point out the actual recommendations in the report – to create a more accountable way for staff to deal with the process of putting private citizens on public boards – were the one thing everyone could agree on. And in the end, it kind of worked. The one thing we can be thankful for, looking back, is that there’s no hard liquor available in Toronto council chambers.

Carrier Appreciation Week

Newspaper carrier recognized for her dedication CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com For the last 22 years, Malti Gupta has braved wind, snow, sleet and rain to deliver newspapers for Toronto Community News (TCN) every week to as many as 1,000 of her neighbours – and no matter the weather, she always does so with an infectious smile on her face. “If we had 500 of her, we would be 500 times better. She’s just one of those really great carriers that we wish we had more of,” said Donna Umpleby, a circulation manager with TCN, which publishes nine community newspapers across Toronto. “She’s just a great lady with a great spirit and great personality. Malti’s always positive. She’s a perfect example of what a carrier should be.” As TCN’s longest standing carrier, Gupta is being recognized for her dedication during this week’s International

Newspaper Carrier Week. The annual appreciation week honours the hundreds of thousands of men and women like Gupta who make such an important contribution to the industry. “Our carriers really are the lifeblood of what we do here at Toronto Community News,” said TCN’s Director of Circulation Mike Banville, noting TCN’s workforce of more than 3,000 carriers aged 10 to 90 deliver more than a million papers weekly to the communities of Scarborough, North York, Etobicoke, Bloor West Village, Parkdale-Liberty Village, York, East York, Beach-Riverdale, and City Centre. “They are so, so important to what we do.” For Gupta, who began carrying for The Scarborough Mirror on Feb. 6, 1990, the job has been one that was born of convenience and has grown into a passion over the years. “When I started, I wasn’t getting the paper. All of my neighbours were, but

I wasn’t,” she said. When she called TCN’s offices to explain her conundrum, one of The Mirror’s then-managers inquired as to whether or not Gupta would like to take on the problem route herself – and thus guarantee herself delivery every week. Gupta, who was running a daycare out of her Scarborough home at the time, readily agreed. And the rest, as they say, is history. Gupta, who came to Canada from India in 1970, began by delivering The Mirror 22 years ago to just the houses on her street, but as time went on and she garnered a reputation for reliability, her route steadily grew. At her peak, she was delivering more than 1,000 newspapers two times a week. “Meeting people in my community has been the best part of the job for me. Plus, it’s the best exercise – I’ve maintained my weight,” she said, laughing. Now a grandmother of seven, Gupta

has trimmed her four-hour route down to 615 houses. But still, Gupta loves her job and doesn’t plan to retire her route until she moves from Scarborough – and so far, she and her husband of 47 years have no plans to relocate. “I love walking and I love meeting people, and that’s what this job is all about,” she said simply. Also being recognized by TCN this week for their long-standing service are Scarborough Mirror carriers Margaret McFarlane and Selvaratnam Jesuthasan, who have both served as carriers for 19 years. Gordon Lidgold (on our front page) has been nominated as an outstanding carrier. He is an extremely dedicated carrier with 7 year’s service and boasts an unblemished delivery record. Gordon can be called upon to help substitute when needed, and the home owners on his route praise and appreciate his dedication.

GTA realtors release resale housing figures for September Greater Toronto Area (GTA) realtors reported 5,879 transactions through the TorontoMLS system in September 2012. The average selling price for these transactions was $503,662, representing an increase of more than 8.5 per cent compared to last year. The number of transactions was down by 21 per cent in comparison to September 2011. However, it is important to note that there were two fewer working days in September 2012 compared to September 2011. The majority of transactions are entered on working days. On a per working day basis, sales were down by 12.5 per cent

year-over-year. “While sales have been lower due to stricter mortgage lending guidelines, we continue to see substantial competition between buyers. The months of inventory trend remains low from a historic perspective, which explains the strong price increases we are experiencing,” says Toronto Real Estate Board President Ann Hannah. September average selling prices were up compared to last year for all major home types. Price growth was strongest in the City of Toronto, including condominium apartments with

eight per cent year-over-year growth. All benchmark home types included in the MLS Home Price Index (MLS HPI) experienced year-over-year price increases, with substantially stronger increases for low-rise home types. “Barring a major change to the consensus economic outlook, home price growth is expected to continue through 2013. Based on inventory levels, price growth will be strongest for low-rise home types, including single-detached and semi-detached houses and town homes,” says TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis, Jason Mercer. – TREB

It’s oddly shaped, crossed by water and sewer pipes, and contaminated, but a City of Toronto agency wants to clean up its 20-acre piece of the Birch Cliff Quarry Lands and sell it for development. Build Toronto’s (the city’s real estate and development corporation) initial plan for the property it calls 411 Victoria Park Ave. didn’t disappoint most neighbours attending a meeting last week, although some seemed dismayed the agency can’t stop a private developer from erecting highrises on parcels to the east. Old quarry pits and a former dump have made the Quarry Lands, land mostly vacant east of Victoria Park and north of Gerrard Street East, a contentious area for decades. Thanks to a 1968 decision, Conservatory Group, a builder with 18 acres at Gerrard and Clonmore Drive, has permission to build 1,455 condominium units there. Prakash David, a Build vicepresident, said the agency

will sell about half its land for retail use and divide the rest between a 4.5-acre park and spaces for 200 or fewer units of lowrise housing. That’s progress, Mark B re n d e r, p re s i d e n t o f Concerned Citizens of Quarry Lands Development, told about 100 residents and business owners Oct. 3 at Malvern Collegiate Institute. ‘Fighting on two fronts’ It wasn’t long ago, he said, that Toronto Economic Development Corporation (TEDCO) and its successor agency Build were frustrating residents with proposals for highrises on the city land. At a 2010 rally, Brender said, “it felt like we were fighting on two fronts. The kinds of things that were being talked about at that time (by Build Toronto) were much different.” Though required to make a profit from the city’s surplus properties, the arms-length agency also cares about “city building” and environmental stewardship, David said at the meeting. He said the retail area and lowrise housing – what form

it takes hasn’t been decided – will reflect the surrounding neighbourhood. The land comes with challenges and restrictions, including a trunk water main that can’t be removed or built upon, active sewer lines and a rail corridor along its northern edge that requires a setback and a crash berm to stop any derailing train. Then there are two large backfilled pits, which boreholes show hold contaminated material down to the bedrock in places, David said. “There’s copper, there’s lead, there’s arsenic,” he said. “It sounds horrible and it is, in a sense,” but the city is willing to invest in removing some materials “in a safe, contained way” while others would be capped with clean fill, David said. An informal park would be “replicated” into a T-shaped area more people could use, and one that would be accessible from Gerrard. Musgrave Street and Blantyre Avenue would be extended into the property, >>RESIDENT, page 20

Heart and Stroke launches The Undeading campaign JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com With Halloween just around the corner, the Heart and Stroke Foundation is urging Torontonians to learn to raise the dead. The foundation teamed up with the Toronto Zombie Walk for a tongue-in-cheek campaign dubbed The Undeading to encourage people to become CPR trained. Heart and Stroke launched the campaign at Yonge-Dundas Square Oct. 4, with staff members descending on the square in zombie makeup for the launch of a three-minute promotional video. “We thought it was a fun way to capture people’s attention about a very serious topic,” said Teresa Roncon, Heart and Stroke Foundation spokesperson. “We all need to get CPR training and we all need to act on our training if the need comes up.” The zombie video was selected – along with the slogan ‘CPR makes you undead’ – to attract a younger crowd. “When you go into cardiac arrest, you’re technically dead,” Roncon said. “Like zombies, we’re trying to

make people undead, but for the right reasons.” The campaign aims to dispel some of the myths about CPR. Statistics show 85 per cent of cardiac arrests happen outside of the hospital, and the save rate for those who suffer cardiac arrest outside of the hospital in Ontario is between five and six per cent. The Heart and Stroke Foundation points to Seattle as the ‘gold standard’ in terms of save rate, with roughly 16 per cent of those who go into cardiac arrest outside of the hospital surviving. By becoming CPR trained, people can help boost Ontario’s low save rate. “For every minute somebody does CPR, the chances of survival (for the victim) increases 10 per cent,” Roncon said. “You’re keeping blood pumping to the brain.” She noted the steps to take when someone goes into cardiac arrest are simple. Start by calling 911 immediately before proceeding to perform CPR by pressing hard and fast on the person’s chest twice per second. For guidance, she said, try to follow the beat of the Bee Gee’s ‘Staying Alive.’ Roncon added it is crucial that

people not hesitate before performing CPR. “People think ‘what if I hurt them? What if I get sued?’” she said. “Ontario has a Good Samaritan law that prevents people from getting sued, and you can’t hurt them. If they’re not breathing, they’re dead.” Adele Lamphier of the Toronto Zombie Walk said her group was happy to partner with the Heart and Stroke Foundation – even more so once they heard what the project was. “We thought it was so much fun and so different for us,” she said. Some participants also took part in a Nuit Blanche event in which they dressed as zombies and handed out flyers saying ‘run for your life.’ The Heart and Stroke Foundation is gearing up to challenge the World Record for CPR training with a group event at Canada’s Wonderland’s Halloween Haunt Oct. 25. The Toronto Zombie Walk takes place Oct. 20 with festivities from noon until 8 p.m. Fo r i n f o r m a t i o n o n t h e Undeading, visit www.theundeading. ca.

Fall isn't just a great time to reconnect with family and friends after the summer, it's the perfect opportunity to support a great cause like the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), especially in October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With Cook for the Cure you can combine entertaining with fundraising. Whether it's an intimate dinner or full-fledged family affair, you can turn your fall gathering into a Cook for the Cure party by asking your guests to make a donation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in place of traditional hostess gifts. Register your party online at www.cookforthecure.ca and KitchenAid will donate $50 to help the cause.

To help you get into the spirit and host your own Cook for the Cure party here's how you can add some fall flair with an autumn inspired menu. Pumpkins: Nothing says fall like a pumpkin pie straight from the oven, but there is more to pumpkins than just pie. Why not try pumpkin soup, which makes a delicious appetizer and can be prepared in advance and heated up when needed. As an added bonus, pumpkins are also great for you, since they contain carotenoids that help reduce the risk of cancer. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is an ingredient in many delicious fall recipes, but why not make cinnamon the star. Cinnamon

cookies can be a delicious dessert or party favour for your guests, while reminding them of their favourite fall recipes. Whip up a batch with a KitchenAid stand mixer the day before your party, and your guests are sure to come back for more. Apples: Host an apple picking party, which is a great way to get outdoors and bond with your guests. Once you have your bushel head back to your place to cook up something delicious with your loot - apple pies, apple cider, applesauce, the possibilities are endless.

A new mural on the east facing wall of Active Healing Centre at 937 Kingston Rd., at Silver Birch Avenue, is set to be unveiled Saturday at noon during the Kingston Road Village Fall Festival. The unveiling event will also include a short demo of how Community Centre 55’s Graffiti Crew has removed graffiti this summer. The crew was responsible for the new mural at Active Healing Centre.

Following the unveiling, team members and supporters will head over to 350 Beech Ave., at Kingston Road, to paint over another local mural that was tagged. Volunteers are welcome to clean up. Community Centre 55’s Graffiti Crew, which removed more than 1,250 tags during the summer, also decorated a bench on Lee Avenue, north of Queen Street East. Call Lainey Anderson at 416-691-1113, ext. 223.

space consists largely of tires that have been converted into a walking surface. Perez and Gafic won a competition among Ontario postsecondary students to design the space. ‘On the Riverbank’ includes a wide, light blue path that mimics the shape and colour of Mud Creek, along with rubberized climbing areas for children, mulch, red maples and perennials. The fast-draining, mold-and-

Old tires may not seem like the most sustainable items out there, but thanks to an initiative by the Ontario Tire Stewardship, Evergreen Brick Works and two Humber College grads, the public is catching a glimpse of their potential. The students, Gloria Perez and Jessica Gafic, designed a new space at the Brick Works using recycled tire products as a surface. Titled ‘On the Riverbank’, the

mildew-resistant rubberized surfaces are particularly beneficial for an area such as the Brick Works, which has experienced flooding in the past. Following the success of Perez and Gafic’s design, the OTS is holding its second design competition using recycled tires, with teams asked to revitalize a space at the Metro Central YMCA in downtown Toronto.

RRIER WEEK INTERNATIONAL NEWSPAPER CA

Resident group remains opposed to Quarry lands development

“I take great pride in congratulating our newspaper delivery force on a job well done during this, International Newspaper Carrier Week.

>>>from page 8 while other new roads through that site may include links to the Conservatory Group land. When residents asked if Build could somehow stop Conservatory Group from building the towers, David said Build believes it has exhausted its efforts. Kim Holman, co-owner of the Beach Fairway Golf Range she has run with husband for more than 14 years on eight of the Build Toronto acres, said she foresees Build’s development helping Conservatory Group by making the developer’s land more valuable. “I can’t control that,” David said to her, maintaining Build is concentrating on developing what it can. Holman said it was obvious she didn’t support Build’s plan, which requires the range to shut down this month. “We’re not choosing to leave,” she said. But the Beach resident said she attended the meeting to thank local people for their support.

Distribution of news and information is the backbone of Toronto Community News services and the dedication of our carriers, young and old, is truly appreciated.

Being a carrier is a great stepping stone for a young person’s future. The traits of responsibility, dedication, customer service and financial management are all employed by our carriers. And indeed, many great Canadians started a successful future bringing newspapers to neighbourhood doorsteps. Vice President & Regional Publisher, Central Division, Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Please take the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to your carrier next time you see them.”

Georgia Jacobsen tries to keep her ball on the green at the Beach Fairway Golf Range’s mini-putt course Monday. The golf range, operated by Brian Jacobsen and Kim Holman, celebrated its last day Monday.

Brender said his grassroots group remains as opposed to the Conservatory Group highrises as ever, and argued what happens on the western portion of the Quarry Lands “can give us leverage” over what happens on the east. The community has worked hard, he said, “to build up a pattern of what we can say the community is.” Facilitator Nicole Swerhun

said residents can email comments until Oct. 8 to kgreen@ swerhun.com Build said it expects to submit an application in November for zoning and Official Plan amendments on its site, and present detailed plans to the community at a meeting in 2013. There would also be community consultation on possible features of the park.
