his latest offering Our Last Best Hope as a “lightly produced dark comedy.” As part of the theatre group’s 17th summer season, Anderson presents “a bold new play”

inspired by the Idle No More movement, one of the largest Indigenous mass movements in Canadian history, which according to its website, “calls on all people to join in a peaceful rev-

Restoration of the historic stone gates at the Jane and Annette streets intersection is now underway, a project that has been in the works by the local Business Improvement Area (BIA) since their centennial anniversary in 2011. Improvements to the Baby Point Gates include enhancing the lighting, removing graffiti, repairing mortar, landscaping, installing new benches, pavers and a parkette. A historic plaque will be erected to illustrate the importance of architect Robert Home Smith, who designed the residential neighbourhood. The gates will be used for seasonal decorating at Christmas and Halloween, according to Danica Loncar, owner of Art Works Art School and chair of the committee working on the restoration of the gates. “This is about reclaiming public space,” Loncar told The Villager this week. “The gates had been neglected for so long. They had become a place where people dumped garbage. The gates were erected in 1911 at the onset of the construction of the Robert Home Smith-designed subdivision to showcase the new neighbourhood. Once the houses were built and residents moved in, >>>GATE, page 7

Baby Point resident ‘Bernadette’ Bicko turns 108 Strong will and sense of humour credited for long years One of Runnymede Healthcare Centre’s newest residents celebrated a milestone birthday Wednesday, July 24, with a party attended by four generations of family. Marie “Bernadette” Bicko turned 108 Wednesday, surrounded by some of her five nieces and nephews, 14 great-nieces and nephews, 10 great-great nieces and nephews and two great-great-great nieces and nephews. Until May, Bicko lived with support in her Baby Point-area home. Her focus in life has been hard work, love of family, her faith, her husband and friends, according to niece Janie Kole. “Bernadette’s strong will and sense of humour has sustained her over the years as well as her good fortune for health. Most importantly, Bernadette never forgot how to

Most importantly, Bernadette never forgot how to laugh. – Janie Kole, niece

laugh,” she said. Bicko (nee Kolaczynski) was a middle child – she had two brothers and two sisters. An avid sports fan, Bicko played short-stop for a local baseball league and attended Maple Leaf baseball games a few times a year. Growing up, she attended St. Rita’s and St. Cecilia Catholic schools followed by Loretta Abbey secondary school and Shaw’s School of Business. Bicko worked in the accounting offices of Eaton’s as well as doing

accounting for her father’s business. Throughout her career, Bicko worked for several companies, the majority at Union Bedding, where she met her husband William Bicko, part owner and a senior sales associate. Only six years into their marriage, William died suddenly. The couple had no children. Bicko would continue with the company until the age of 75 when her sister, Rita, insisted she retire so they could travel together. More like best friends, the two were passionate about fashion and loved to play bridge with friends from their church, St. James Catholic on Annette Street. Bicko gets regular visits to her new home at Runnymede Healthcare Centre at Runnymede and St. Johns roads. – Lisa Rainford

ith Toronto Public Health now reporting it has found mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus within the city limits, residents must take the threat seriously and protect themselves and those they love. Public health monitors 43 mosquito traps across the city, and would not say the exact location where the infected insects were found. Instead, Elaine Pacheco, Healthy Environments manager with public health, said all Torontonians need to take precautions. While West Nile is not usually fatal in humans, it can be. There have been hundreds of cases reported over the years, and some people have died in our city from the virus. It could happen our view again. For most people exposed to the virus, though, the symptoms don’t Basic even show. For about one in five symptoms can include precautions people, fever, body aches, nausea, vomitadvised ing and headaches. Less than one per cent of people infected require hospitalization, Pacheco said. Last year, Toronto Public Health said 94 people were diagnosed with West Nile in the city and there were 100 infected mosquito pools discovered through testing. Residents need to remember there is a chance they could be exposed to an infected mosquito. But by taking some basic precautionary steps, they can be protected. People can reduce their risk by wearing lightcoloured long-sleeved shirts, pants, socks and a hat while outdoors. Mosquitoes are especially active at dusk and dawn, and at those times extra precautions, including the use of insect repellent, are advised. Residents can also lessen the chance of mosquito breeding by making sure the habitats that support them are dealt with. In particular, make sure standing water such as bird feeders, plant pots and the like are either emptied or refilled with fresh water. Mosquitoes love to breed in such environments. Protecting our indoor living space by making sure screens on windows and doors do not have holes is also important. While Torontonians should not live in fear of mosquitoes, we should look after ourselves and continue to make the rest of the summer healthy and happy.

Former budget chief ponders running for mayor The electoral battleground that was formerly known as Scarborough could become very interesting in 2014. Scratch that. It’s already interesting, now that Mayor Rob Ford has managed to gather enough votes to support building subway tunnels east and north from Kennedy station, a move that at once degrades the reach of rapid transit in Scarborough and feeds the local appetite for heavy-duty infrastructure improvements. Scarborough voters’ good will on this matter could well send Ford’s damaged mayoralty into a second term, scandals be damned. What it’s on the verge of becoming is titanically interesting. David Soknacki, a former budget chief under mayor David Miller and a former councillor from Scarborough’s east end, is considering adding his name to the growing list of high-profile candidates for

david nickle the city the next mayor of Toronto. Of all of them – Karen Stintz, John Tory, Olivia Chow – he’s got the lowest profile. Smaller ideas Since stepping away from council in 2006, Soknacki’s been spending his time heading up Parc Downsview Park, writing a column for this newspaper and tending his spice manufacturing and exporting business, Ecom Food Industries. But should Soknacki choose to run, Ford will be in for a fight – at least in Scarborough. Soknacki and Ford have certain similarities. Both are business owners – although unlike Ford, who inherited his share of Deco Labels from his late father, Soknacki started his

own business. Both are Progressive Conservatives, and both came to council with ideas to reform the place – although in this case, Soknacki’s ideas were smaller than Ford’s notion of stopping a gravy train. It was enough for Soknacki to push a motion to end nepotistic hiring in councillors’ offices. Both have ideas about transit in Scarborough. But while both agree it needs to be improved, beyond that their divergence could not be more pronounced. Ford, in case anyone missed it, is a subway man. Soknacki has been a consistent supporter of light rail. Ford is working on ways to pay for the subway. Soknacki is supporting a plan that is already financed by the provincial government. So if it goes ahead, there will be a spectacle of two candidates: both wealthy and Conservative; one from

Etobicoke who shows his love for Scarborough with the promise of a subway; another who shows his love for Scarborough by living there, and promising the old light rail plan. Toronto is of course larger than Scarborough. But if Ford wants to win a second term, he can’t afford to lose what amounts to nearly a third of the entire city. Facing Chow or Stintz or even Tory, Ford’s support in Scarborough is strong. Facing an opponent with hometown bona fides and a strong argument against the chimeric promise of an unfunded subway line, the mayor could be in real trouble. Even if Soknacki can’t persuade the rest of the city to put him over the top on election day, the damage his candidacy can do to the mayor’s base could be enough to topple him.

New off-leash trail coming to High Park The City of Toronto is currently in the midst of completing the second phase of the High Park Dogs Off-Leash Area improvement project, announced Parkdale-High Pa r k Co u n c i l l o r Sa ra h Doucette in her latest e-newsletter. This phase will see the creation of a new off-leash trail

around the allotment gardens and will include the installation of a new metal staircase on the ravine embankment. The construction will occur in stages over the coming season. In order to allow construction equipment to operate without compromising public safety, sections of the trail

system will have to be closed when the construction site is active. It is the councillor’s intention to post notice of such trail closures 48 hours in advance of impeding public access.

Work begins on Bloor Street West As of this week, the city is resurfacing and reconstructing Bloor Street West from Jane Street to Old Mill Road, as well as replacing damaged sidewalks, catch basins, curbs and gutters, accord-

Show hopes to be a wake-up call for action, collaboration >>>from page 1 No More movement Spokesperson Pam Palmater, Mi’kmaq lawyer and professor and academic director of the Centre for Indigenous Governance at Ryerson University, who said: “First Nations represent Canadians’ last best hope of stopping Canada from mass destruction of our shared lands, waters, plants and animals in the name of resource development for export to foreign countries...” Co-written by Angela Loft, who is First Nations and a Clay and Paper alumnus, Our Last Best Hope opened July 25 and continues to Aug. 18 with

shows in Dufferin Grove Park Wednesdays through Sundays at 7 p.m. Even though the production tackles some heavy topics, such as the oil industry, Anderson calls it “a very dance-y piece filled with movement and fun.” “There’s a simple story line. Basically, the world is in trouble and we need help,” he said. “Everyone must be included in the changes we contemplate about how to make the world better.” In typical Clay and Paper fashion, the story is told using its trademark satire, wit, song and dance – and large puppets, which were

created in just four weeks, Anderson said. Our Last Best Hope is a wake-up call of sorts for action, for joining forces, for changing direction, for securing the world’s future for generations to come. Anderson cites several sources of influence, including Andrew Nikiforuk’s book The Energy of Slaves; The Inconvenient Indian and The Truth About Stories by Thomas King as well as his trips volunteering with ArtsCanCircle in remote First Nations communities.

Gate work continues until mid-August >>>from page 1 they liked the gates so much they wanted to keep them. The entire project is billed at $100,000 and work is scheduled for completion

in mid-August. Loncar credits community partners such as the Humbercrest United Church congregation, the Baby Point residential community and city planner

Antonella Nicaso as well as BIA merchants and their neighbours. “The gates are here for everyone to enjoy,” Loncar said.
