Homeowner battles Riverdale heritage district

Emily’s House receives $100,000

Philip Aziz Centre (PAC), the 80-volunteer strong organization set to operate Emily’s House children’s hospice in Riverdale, has received $100,000 from the Rotary Club of Toronto. The club, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, is donating $1 million to a number of projects in the community that benefit marginalized individuals. The Rotary Club of Toronto presented the donation to the Philip Aziz Centre – which was founded in 1995 through a bequest from a Toronto art teacher who died of an AIDS-related illness and provides inhome practical, emotional and spiritual support to Toronto residents of all ages living with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses – at its fourth Rotary Centennial Award Luncheon last Friday.

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com It was mid-March when Fabrizio D’Amico first saw the crumbling Victorian townhouse at 198 First Ave. “I’d been looking for a year and a half – I lost out on 14 properties,” D’Amico said. “This one I stumbled upon just walking on the street. I loved the look of it, saw a lot of potential. I loved the street, had total strangers say hello to me...I put an offer in, and my first offer was accepted. I was ecstatic at first – and now I wish I’d never done it.” D’Amico made that last comment while leaving a meeting of the Toronto Preservation Board, where he and his neighbours had come pleading for lenience after a mix-up involving the city’s heritage rules, a local ratepayers’ group and a sharply divided community that comes down to one thing: the wrong windows. D’Amico had purchased the 120year-old house, which neighbours told the board had previously belonged to an elderly person with a hoarding disorder, with the intention to completely update it. By his own description, he had his work cut out for him. The house was filled with garbage and had been abandoned for several years as its owner went into care. During that time, it was frequently occupied by squatters and infested with wildlife, and its slate roof was badly in need of repair. It was also a designated heritage house as part of the Riverdale Heritage Conservation District. And D’Amico told the committee he was woefully ill-informed as to his responsibilities. And among those responsibilities, to maintain the period flavour of the property through details and >>>WOOD, page 3

The Canadian Urban Institute has recognized two waterfront projects for their leadership, innovation and environmental sustainability in brownfield redevelopment across Canada. Underpass Park in the West Don Lands community has won a 2012 Brownie Award for the best small-scale project. The first phase of Underpass Park opened this summer. The Flood Protection Landform, on a former industrial site near the Don River that was subject to more than 100 years of industrial use, has earned a special award for its contribution to the public realm. This unique landform is designed to provide flood protection for 518 acres of the city’s downtown east area including the Financial District. The prestigious awards, designed to celebrate excellent in brownfield redevelopment by transforming contaminated sites into “great places”, were announced on Thursday, Oct. 4. The two projects were among 28 finalists in seven categories across Canada.

Distillery District filled with ghostly encounters JOANNA LAVOIE jlavoie@insidetoronto.com In a national historic site whose buildings date back to the 1830s, there are bound to be a few lost souls lurking. The Distillery Historic District, formerly the longtime home of the Gooderham & Worts Distillery, has had a number of unexplained ghost sightings, one of which is believed to be one of its founders, James Worts Sr. “Early in the Distillery Historic District’s history, there was a pretty tragic event,” said Rowena Brook, tour manager/guide with The Haunted Walk of Toronto, which runs evening ghost and historical tours of Old Toronto throughout the year. In 1831 and 1832 respectively, brothers-in-law James Worts Sr. and William Gooderham came to Canada from Yorkshire, England, and opened a small grist mill near Parliament and Front streets in the Old City of York. Worts, however, suffered a great loss in his life when his beloved wife died during childbirth just a few years after his arrival in 1834. “He was very taken by his grief and there was a well he used to stand by on the property that he threw himself into,” Brook said. It’s believed Worts’ ghost still roams around keeping an eye on things at the Distillery Historic District, the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian industrial architecture in North America. “That’s been the most common sighting,” she said during a recent

interview. The actual production of whiskey didn’t begin at that site until 1837. With Worts’ eldest son, James Jr., now involved in the business as a partner, The Gooderham & Worts Distillery grew into the largest distillery in the British Empire. The business was also Canada’s largest corporate taxpayer. However, after more than 150 years, alcohol ceased being made there in 1990 and for more than a decade, the only ones to make use of the property were countless film and television crews. On one occasion, a film crew member on a coffee run had a fright when he spotted a man clad in old-fashioned clothing wandering around the property. He followed this man for a short time until the figure disappeared

through a wall, Brook said. There are several spooky reminders of the site’s past specifically related to the presence of a man who was killed at the site’s Boiler House building as a result of a tank explosion on Christmas Eve 1863, Brook said. While there haven’t been any actual physical reports of any ghost sightings of this man, there have been a few uncanny experiences at what is now home to the Boiler House restaurant. Late one night, an event planner was working on the first floor when the planner heard a heavy chair being dragged across the floor of the second floor gallery area despite no one else being in the building at that time. Another time, workers were preparing for the restaurant’s

dinner rush when they saw one staff member looking “incredibly horrified,” Brook said. “She believed she saw a man hanging from his neck from a wine rack. Needless to say that was the last shift she worked in the restaurant.” There’s a second unexplained incident involving that same second-level wine rack. One busy evening, a customer yelled “watch out” as a large novelty style wine bottle randomly moved out from the rack and seemingly suspended in mid air before slowly coming down and landing on the bar below. “There wasn’t a crack. It didn’t break or anything,” Brook said. One of the most notable stories about supernatural activity in the Distillery Historic District involves the circa 1895 building that now houses Balzac’s Coffee Roasters. Once the Fire Pump House, the café currently houses a large, heavy chandelier with two ceiling fans on either side. When on at full blast, the fans cause the fixture to rotate slowly, but early one morning a manager came in to work and observed the chandelier violently moving back and forth. “No one really knows why it was doing that,” said Brook, adding there have been various reports over the years of a “presence, like someone was standing there” felt by workers at Balzac’s.

Wood versus aluminum windows at heart of heritage battle >>>from page 1 accents, was replacing the damaged windows with wood-framed panes that specifically matched other homes of similar vintage. But, he said, he didn’t find out about this until he’d ordered and paid for $11,000 worth of aluminumframed windows. And when a city heritage official told him he couldn’t install those windows, he did so anyway in defiance of a stop-work order. “The house could not afford to have these windows not installed,” D’Amico told the committee. “How could a house be ignored for years and left to run down and only when someone is saving it, they take notice? As a homeowner, if my roof is leaking, I get it fixed; if my furnace is broken, I replace it.” D’Amico came to the board meeting with a group of neighbours in support of him. Bridget Belton lives next door to

the house and commended D’Amico for taking on the task that has so far cost him $150,000. “Mr. D’Amico has come in and in my books is a hero,” she said. “He has taken over a completely derelict house that I didn’t think ever was going to get taken care of. I can’t tell you how much money we’ve put into our house to keep the animals out. “I’m horrified to think that he is being threatened with imprisonment and fines. This just feels wrong.” In fact, heritage preservation staff said it is unlikely that it would come to imprisonment, although if the city decides to prosecute D’Amico for placing inappropriate windows on his home, the matter would go before the courts. Scott Smith, chair of the Riverdale Heritage Conservation District Advisory Committee, urged the board to press ahead. He told the board he had done his due dili-

gence by delivering a newsletter to the property, outlining some of D’Amico’s responsibilities. D’Amico maintained the flyer had gotten lost amid the cleanup debris, but Smith insisted that was not his responsibility. Cost to volunteers And he said that while the cost to D’Amico of replacing the windows might be considerable, it didn’t compare to the cost in volunteer time and city time to establish and maintain the heritage district in Riverdale. “It’s not fair, it’s just not fair,” he said. “It’s not fair that one new owner who bought into a heritage district can cause this much angst and manipulate the kind of division he’s causing in this neighbourhood. “If the proper steps were taken then this argument might be about wood windows versus aluminum

windows, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. “The argument must be the neighbourhood who must abide, versus the new owner saying I don’t care about the rules, I’ll do what I want.” Ultimately, the board sided with Smith, and ordered the windows be removed and replaced with more historically appropriate windows. But Councillor Adam Vaughan, who moved the recommendations, said he would vote at council to have the matter sent back to community council and ultimately support leniency. “Community council is supposed to adjudicate on these issues and hear the evidence we heard today,” he said, adding there needed to be “discipline in the process” and the decision needed to be made politically. “I appreciate how unfair that is to everyone in this room,” he said.

“What I’m asking for is for clarity to be returned to this process. It looks like we’re making everything up on the fly.” At the end of the meeting, an emotional D’Amico praised the neighbours who supported him in rebuilding the house. But the process has pushed him past his limits. He said he is nearly out of money, having exhausted his savings, and at this point said the house might be habitable by spring, but won’t be finished for years. “What’s crazy is if this house just fell apart, I wouldn’t be here right now,” he said. “I wouldn’t be here right now if the house collapsed. I put in this effort and work and money and I feel like I’m being punished.” n The matter will be coming before Toronto council when it meets Oct. 30.

Profit over service if TTC privatized

Probing for solutions to affordable community space

T

oronto’s neighbourhoods must be places where residents have opportunities to come together to learn, volunteer and play. This month’s “A Closer Look” feature delves into the issues of affordable community space in the city and the challenges community groups have in gaining access. We looked at both a city-wide experience and assessed the situation in our community, looking at the issue from the standpoint of not only specific user groups, but also those who rent out their facilities for community use. At the root of this challenge is money – or lack of it. Earlier this year, the cash-strapped City of Toronto, facing an outcry from local sports organizations, ultimately waived a permit fee hike for the use of city fields that our view would have added $1.5 million to the city’s coffers, but also City should would have threatened those organizations’ survival. list available According to a report from the Wellesley Institute, titled spaces ‘Exercising Good Policy: Increasing Access to Recreation in Toronto’s 2013 Budget’ increasing access to recreational facilities is a smart investment, one that pays off with improved health of the populace. We agree the City of Toronto has a role to play in ensuring affordable access to community space for artistic and recreation groups. But perhaps there’s more to achieving this than by waiving fees. There are facilities in the city (places of worship come to mind) whose operators are looking for user groups as well. As a representative from a church in Weston noted, about the only challenge with being a landlord is getting the word out that space in the facility is available for rent. Would it make sense, then, for the city to have a centralized area online where not-for-profit facilities and potential user groups can be matched up? There is also reason for optimism. One of the recommendations in the Wellesley report calls for stable funding for youth outreach workers programs in order to enable positive health outcomes for our young people. Earlier this month, the province announced funding for 35 new youth outreach workers, with 20 of those spots earmarked for Toronto. While a provincial funding announcement from a minority government is not quite the definition of ‘stable’, that announcement, which took place at the Jane Street Hub in York, is a start and is recognition of the need for those kinds of investments in our communities.

Re: ‘Reader talks privatization and meat,’ Letters, Oct. 11. The TTC probably needs a shake-up, but this civic corporation exists because of the private corporations who initially ran the public transportation service in Toronto were so inept at the job that Toronto had no choice but to take over the whole thing and establish the Toronto Transportation Commission. According to Toronto historian Mike Filey, the private transportation companies refused service to areas deemed unprofitable, which apparently did not sit well with the Toronto tax-paying citizens who felt they were entitled to such service. After all, any private enterprise is going to put profits before service. Privatize the TTC and see how fast service to non-profitable routes are chopped and how many Torontonians are cut off from public transportation. The TTC puts service first, something that private companies cannot afford to do. Bill Tee

Battle ignites over smoking ban at city hall Those who think Toronto council’s tug-of-war flipflopping under Mayor Rob Ford is a new development in Toronto politics either have short memories or are new in town. Municipal councils have flipped and flopped frequently and sometimes with great gusto. Remember smoking in bars and restaurants? Back in the day, it used to be commonplace to have your calamari dusted with nicotine. Second-hand smoke was a health issue, but for many, commerce and culture trumped science and medicine. The first attempts at smoking bans, in the mid1990s, happened in two former municipalities: North York, and Toronto. In both cases, councillors bowed to pressure from restaurant owners and the tobacco industry, and

THE CITY

david nickle

reversed the bans within months of them being put in place. It was only after amalgamation and with the urging of the city’s medical officer of health Dr. Sheela Basrur that council pushed ahead with a city-wide ban. And that was a terrible fight in itself, as restaurateurs and bar-owners lined up to predict a hospitality apocalypse if smokers were asked to take it outside. But the bylaw passed, its opponents placated with a phase-in law and Toronto’s restaurants and bars boomed, or at least flourished. Eventually the provincial government decided

to mirror Toronto’s ban and for a time, it seemed as though all was settled. This week, the Toronto Board of Health decided to ramp it up a notch. Having sent smokers outside, the board recommended starting consultation on a bylaw that would make smoking on outdoor patios, at sports fields, outside buildings and on hospital grounds illegal. One can never entirely predict these things, but so far it seems as though the kerfuffle of the late 1990s won’t see a repeat this time. According to a report from the Basrur’s successor, Dr. David McKeown, there is more widespread support for smoking bans now than 15 years ago. The dire predictions the hospitality industry made last time simply didn’t come to pass. This is not to say that I’d lay money on it happening;

after all, Toronto council could well do another flip-flop on its 15-year-old opposition to casinos and approve one later this year. And while the memories of the Mad Men-era smokeem-if-you’ve-got-em ethos may have been stronger in the late 1990s than it is now, we are in the midst of the Angry Man era of Fordfamily red-meat conservatism here at city hall. So we’ll see how this goes. Now that provincial law has enshrined the city’s existing smoking bylaw, there’s no risk of that reversing. The question of what happens outside is very much in play. And given everything else on our plate, the last thing Toronto needs is a bare-knuckled rematch of the smoking war. But given the crowd at city hall these days, that may be just what we get.

Police

Wanted Wednesdays initiative a success Road Sweeping Operation Toronto District Transportation Services is getting ready to perform sweeping operations on the streets ofToronto this fall.The purpose of the sweeping is to collect leaves that fall, naturally, onto the street. All streets will be swept on two occasions.The operation will continue until November 30, 2012.The map shows the area where the sweeping operation will take place. Please do not rake leaves onto the roadway or sidewalks from your property. Raking leaves onto the roadway is a by-law offence and could result in charges being laid. In addition, raking, blowing, placing or dumping leaves onto City property (sidewalk, roadway, catch basins, etc.,) can create dangerous conditions, cause flooding on the roadways or on property or cause accidents. Here’s how to put leaves out for collection: Use reusable containers (any rigid open-top container such as a garbage can, bushel basket, green plastic yard waste bin – no lids) or kraft paper yard waste bags.

Using social media as a tool to combat crime in the city’s east end is working out for 55 Division police. Six weeks ago, officers from the local station launched a new weekly initiative called Wanted Wednesdays, which aims to locate and arrest individuals currently wanted for a range of crimes. Every Wednesday, Const. Rob McDonald, the division’s crime pre-

vention officer, profiles a wanted person on Twitter and Facebook. Several media outlets as well as concerned citizens have since taken note of the initiative and are helping spread the word. “An interested and engaged community always makes for a safer one,” he said. So far, three of the six individuals profiled have been arrested. “Two individuals actually turned themselves in,” McDonald said, adding that using social media is a highly effective way for police to reach out to the community and

share crime prevention messages. “It’s been really good. We’ve had some really good successes.” McDonald said it’s just a matter of time before the other individuals profiled on Wanted Wednesdays are apprehended. “We want to get the message out that if you’re wanted, it may take us some time, but we will catch you. Anyone with information about outstanding individuals in 55 Division is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477). - Joanna Lavoie

Man arrested after bikes stolen A 40-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with a stolen bicycle investigation. On Saturday, police arrested Christopher Mowers, of Toronto, and charged him with one count of possession of property obtained by crime. He has a Dec. 11 court date. Police say a woman reportedly saw her stolen bicycle for sale online and contacted authorities. An undercover officer then got in touch with the seller to

purchase the stolen property. The officer purchased the bike and the accused was arrested in his Upper Beach-area home. Police seized 12 bicycles from the accused’s residence. Five of those bikes have since been declared stolen property. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416808-5500, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).

Special Report

Rising fees hit youth sports CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

‘If they had implemented that, it would have killed us.’

W

hen the Etobicoke Basketball Association (EBA) got hit with news of a more than 333 per cent fee increase at half its gyms last month, the impact was forecast as potentially catastrophic – especially to the 1,200-kid strong league’s lower income players. That’s because, like many volunteer-driven, notfor-profit sports a organizations closer look across Toronto, the bulk of EBA’s player Inside fees go directly Toronto toward facilities permits. For such groups already operating on shoe-string budgets, any increase in permit fees – like EBA’s recent threefold bump-up at Toronto District School Board (TDSB) gyms – must be passed along to its participants, explained Joe DaSilva, an EBA board member and volunteer coach. “If we ran a middle class league, we would have no problem because we’d just increase our fees and people would say that was fine, but we’re working very hard to make (EBA) very inclusive of everybody,” he said, noting that many of the league’s players come from single-parent homes, making fees a barrier. “This (TDSB increase) really affects how many kids we can afford to subsidize. We gather funds during the year to subsidize around 200 kids, because how do you turn away a kid who shows up with $50 and says, ‘This is all I have. I want to play basketball’?” EBA is far from Toronto’s only not-for-profit struggling with the search for affordable space – just as the TDSB isn’t the only provider struggling to accommodate them. The changes to the permitting fee schedule at the TDSB, explained board spokesperson Ryan Bird, came about because of a shortfall between the cost of supporting the community use of school space and the revenue collected. “Before these measures were voted on, we were subsidizing our permit holders to the tune of $11 million each year. The fact is we couldn’t continue subsidizing it to that level,” he explained, noting the TDSB issues close to 20,000 permits each year in its 550 schools across the city. Across the city, a series of fee increases announced this year at both the City of Toronto and school board levels – arguably the two biggest providers of gym,

Whether local gyms remain accessible to our youth is a question the city and its school boards must come to grips with.

playing field and community spaces in the city – have left many sporting groups crying ‘foul’ over a lack of affordable space. “Gyms are not like condominiums, they’re not being built on every corner – there’s a finite inventory of them and the permit office holds all the cards,” DaSilva said. DaSilva’s concerns echo those expressed by many in the city’s minor baseball community earlier this year, when playing fields were struck by a $1.5-million fee hike proposal by the City of Toronto. Groups like the Weston Baseball Association (WBA), Etobicoke Girls Softball League and the East York Baseball Association said some of the city-owned fields they, as not-forprofit associations, had previously used for free, were now facing increases that could put some of the leagues out of business. “If they had implemented that, it would have killed us,” WBA President Roy Baksh said back in April, shortly after city council waived the increased fees – which would have meant an extra $15,000 for the WBA – for a year.

While Baksh expressed hope the city might provide an exemption next year to leagues like his providing sporting opportunities in high needs areas, there is still no promise the increased fees won’t be implemented across the board in 2013. With increases at both cityowned playing fields and in the TDSB school facilities due to come down in just a short few months, sporting groups across the city have been left scrambling to see how best they can accommodate all their players – not just the ones who can afford the increase in fees they’ll be forced to levy upon them. At a time when sports groups are getting hit hardest, a report emerged this month from the Wellesley Institute, urging the City of Toronto to improve the health of its residents by increasing access to recreational outlets. “City councillors have opportunities, right now, to improve the health of Torontonians that don’t require massive investments or complicated agreements with other levels of government,” reads the report, entitled Exercising

Good Policy: Increasing Access to Recreation in Toronto’s 2013 Budget. “One of these opportunities is quite simple: increase access to recreational services for Torontonians.” Coming as it does in the wake of yet another violence plagued summer in Toronto, the report and its recommendations are reminiscent of reaction to Toronto’s Summer of the Gun in 2005, when funding for community programming rolled in as a means to stop youth violence. One of the results of that influx was the Community Hub initiative in some of Toronto’s most under served suburban neighbourhoods, where a lack of community space was compounding the challenges of social isolation and poverty faced by many residents. As part of their ongoing Building Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy – and in partnership with the province, key agency partners, and private funders – United Way Toronto has developed eight community hubs in priority neighbourhoods across the city, funding $1 million toward the capital costs of each hub, as well as contributing $150,000 annually toward each’s operating costs. “In looking at developing the Building Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy and hubs in particular, was the fact that, yes, space is a big challenge all over the city, particularly in suburbs,” said Lorraine Duff, United Way Toronto’s director of programming. “So we decided to ensure that some of this space was available for community agencies to use.” Seven of the planned eight hubs will be fully open and operational as of next month, Duff added, noting the hubs in MidScarborough, Crescent Town, Flemingdon Park-Victoria Village, Weston-Mt. Dennis, and Rexdale are currently open, while those in Dorset Park and the Bathurst/ Finch area are set to open by beginning of November. Duff said so far the community spaces within those hubs – including community kitchens, meeting rooms, and in the case of the Rexdale Community Hub, a gym – are always well used and in demand, especially by the kids.

Community Centre 55 offers affordable space for groups Community Centre 55 (CC55), at 97 Main St. in the Upper Beach, is much more than just a local community centre. CC55 is a neighbourhood hub that for more than 30 years has allowed scores of non-profit community groups to access affordable, even free, meeting space and resources. One of 10 volunteer board-run, multi-purpose facilities in Toronto providing a broad range of community/recreation/social service programs, the award-winning City of Toronto agency/charity is part of the Association of Community Centres, a model where the centre’s core administration activities are funded by the city and treated like a city agency, but whose program component is funded though fees, donations and grants, and is treated like an independent not-for-profit community-based organization. During the day, CC55 runs a range of affordably priced programming for children to seniors, but in the after-hours and on weekends it’s open for community groups. “We have many user groups that really depend on us and we’re happy to have them. It’s a win for everybody,” said Debbie Visconti, the centre’s executive director. Visconti said a lot of groups, especially those that directly serve the neighbourhood such as residents associations and special interest community groups, that may not be able to afford renting space at other locations in the area, have found a home at CC55. The East Toronto Baseball Association, a family oriented, volunteer-run community organization that for more than 30 years has provided children and their families with the opportunity to enjoy the fun associated with baseball and community activities, is another local group that has greatly benefitted from the centre. “It’s an invaluable resource for our group,” said David Breech, president of the association, which relies on the local centre for its mailing address, meeting space, and other administrative and storage. “Community Centre 55 is great for the continuity of groups. It’s a hub of information for the community.” The 2006 Beach Citizen of the Year, Breech said he’s amazed at how many amazing people and groups make use of Community Centre 55. “There aren’t many places like this in the city. It’s quite a dynamic group for such a small space and such a small staff,” he said. – Joanna Lavoie

be told to visit www.changeforkids.ca and enter their coin PIN code for their chance to win prizes. “The PIN number is important because Scotiabank will make an extra $5 gift to Holland Bloorview every time a PIN code is entered,” Bailey said. There are more than 500 prizes, including a weekend stay at the Great Wolf Lodge for your family and nine other families of your choice. Events Change for Kids also features two events this weekend: a Halloween party at the Ontario Science Centre Saturday night and a “Monster March and Fun Fair” at Holland Bloorview Sunday. Admission to the Halloween party is $18 and includes access to all Ontario Science Centre exhibits, a family dance party and chances to win prizes. The event runs from 6 p.m. to midnight. The march and fun fair

runs 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets are $12.50. The march consists of a two-kilometre walk around the Holland Bloorview property. “About every 10 feet along the two-kilometre walk, there are treat stations and trick stations and all kinds of fun things for kids to do,” Bailey said. Proceeds from Change for Kids go to Holland Bloorview. The hospital, at 150 Kilgour Rd. in the Bayview and Eglinton avenues area, provides specialized programs and clinical care for youth with rehabilitation and complex care needs. “Change for Kids is not only about raising money right now for the programs and services of the hospital,” Bailey said. “But the word ‘change’ has been very specifically selected because it means that everyone is doing their part to change attitudes towards disability and to make the world more accessible for everyone.” ~ Andrew Palamarchuk

Torontonians are being asked to give more than a treat this Halloween. They can also hand out Change for Kids coins that give trick-or-treaters a chance to win prizes while supporting Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Canada’s largest hospital for disabled children. “This is the first year we’ve ever run this program,” said Tracey Bailey, president of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation. “Our goal is to raise $100,000.” This is how the Change for Kids initiative works: People can buy an activated Change for Kids coin card for $5 at any Scotiabank branch in the GTA. Cards obtained from other distributors such as Spirit Halloween, Costco, Toys “R” Us, newspapers or magazines can be activated for $5 by visiting www. changeforkids.ca People can then pop out the coins from their card and give them to trick-or-treaters.
