aNdREw PaLamaRCHuk apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com Stefanie Petkovic died last Thursday while doing what she loved: taking a long morning walk. The 73-year-old longtime Perth Avenue resident was following her daily routine when she suffered an aortic aneurysm on Merchant Lane. Her death was initially considered suspicious by police, which came as a double shock to her family. But an autopsy revealed that Petkovic died of natural causes and that her injuries were sustained from a fall due to the medical emergency, police said. “She went for her morning walk,” said Petkovic’s daughter Marianne Desaulniers. “Because she had the aortic aneurysm, she died instantly, but she would have had a laugh that she went out with a bang because it became a crime scene.” Petkovic would usually take her morning walks with her beloved poodle Sofie, but since it was raining Thursday morning,

HoliDay SPecial

Celebrating the holidays in a ‘uniquely Canadian way’ In Toronto, people make room for their neighbour’s cultural celebrations DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com There’s something different about the window display at the Hudson’s Bay Company flagship store at Yonge and Queen Streets this holiday season. Gone are the animated Christmas carollers, the elves and the reindeer trappings of Christmas. In their place? The Aurora Borealis; owls and geese and squirrels and bears, animal denizens of a wintery “enchanted forest” that speaks more to the Canadian winter than the Christian holiday that’s among those celebrated in December. A year ago and a border south of the Bay, a decision to step back from Christmas in favour of wintery magic might have gotten a lot of flak from Christians and other traditionalists who see a war against the holiday in the colour of Starbucks coffee cups and the use of the greeting “happy holidays” rather than Merry Christmas.

This year? With Stephen Bannon, the head of the right-wing, hate-spinning website Breitbart.com at the right hand of president-elect Donald Trump, whatever bloom there was on the rose of Christiancentric, exclusive celebration this season has surely faded. That goes doubly so in Toronto - one of the most multicultural and multireligious cities in the world - where the de-Christmasing of the Bay raised barely an eyebrow. “This isn’t a bad year for us to be talking about the uniquely Canadian way of celebrating Christmas,” says Toronto city councillor Joe Mihevc, who came to politics by way of divinity studies. Mihevc represents a typically diverse ward (Ward 21 - St. Paul’s) in a diverse city, and he holds his communities up as a model of accommodation. While the law of the land turns Christmas - that being the explicit celebration of the birth of Christ - into a paid, nearly universal holiday, Mihevc says that the many faiths practiced in the communities he represents find ways to celebrate. “At the Wychwood Barns, there’s a Christmas thing, a Hanukkah thing, a Kwanzaa thing,” he says. “It’s let’s celebrate and

The Hudson’s Bay Company’s window displays at Yonge and Queen streets are featuring a winter theme this year – a break in tradition from their usual Christmas theme. have fun with it. It’s not a way of defining your religious team as differentiated from other religious teams.” In Scarborough, United Church Minister Gretta Vosper takes that ethos a step further. Vosper, an avowed atheist, is battling a move by the church to defrock her for her religious views. The matter is currently decided against her, subject to an appeal. The West Hill United Church where she officiates until that is heard offers a “longest night” service that coincides with the equinox - the shortest day of the year, Dec. 21. The congregation there focuses on the communal elements of the season -

extinguishing candles to represent regrets, and lighting candles to illuminate hope. “It’s a service that doesn’t use scriptural text, but touches the primal elements of all traditions,” she says. “What we do is, the lowest common denominator of what people of good will can agree on. That’s what we build on.” Vosper’s God-absent view may be an outlier in a season that gathers many around spiritual symbols, but even the devout can see the value in inclusivity. Rev. Rachel Kessler left her parish in midtown Toronto last year to become chaplain at Kenyon College in Ohio. The

Episcopal college’s student body is diverse, with students practicing Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and pagan religions, as well as many who don’t worship at all. “The way we have been striving to approach spiritual life here is, how do we affirm the religious identity of the people in our community and support them fully, in our own identity and making space for one another’s identity?” she asks. Making that space, Kessler acknowledges, is work. “Forming a true interfaith relationship should cost me something,” she says. “If that cost is I say ‘happy holidays’ to Muslim or Jewish students, or a

pagan student who doesn’t want to celebrate Christmas - well, that’s a pretty low cost for me.” Kessler would, in fact, be willing to pay more. “I want to scrap Christmas as a paid holiday entirely,” she said. “I think we should all celebrate as a secular society as a winter holiday. But in my religious community, I would like to celebrate my festival. The whole festival of the light of God, coming into the world.” As for the Bay? When asked for comment on the new wintry display, Bay spokesperson Michelle Veilleux was unable to find anyone to comment. Here in Toronto, the display speaks for itself.

S

o much has been debated about how we wish someone well during the holiday season. ‘Put Christ back in Christmas!’ are common cries from those who celebrate. Indeed, they should put Christ back in Christmas. That’s the reason of the season for them. For those who believe, Christ was born in a manager with livestock all around him. He had no clothes. He came from no wealth. But he led his life with love at the core. Torontonians must recognize (and most probably do) that there is room for everyone to celebrate in the way they choose, this month and throughout the year. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Diwali and other faith-based celebrations, the common thread is love and hope. Honouring what’s come before, and making a conscious effort to do better moving forward. It’s about people. It’s about kindness. It’s about generosity. It’s about acceptance. It’s about loving your neighbour. It’s about spending time with people who matter to you. It’s about giving to a stranger with no expectation of anything in return. Sharing a smile and wishing someone ‘Happy Holidays’ doesn’t detract from what the season of giving is all about. If anything, we as a people should be offended with the commercialism and high-cost of celebrating at this time of year. Buying the best of the best in gifts, but not giving the best of the best of ourselves, is the greater sacrifice to humanity. What matters is how you treat people, not the price tag attached to the shiny new present. It’s irrelevant in the long run. It’s a general understanding people remember how you made them feel, not what you did or bought for them. It’s unlikely if Jesus Christ walked this earth today he would take exception to wishing someone ‘Season’s Greetings’ or “Happy Holiday’s or a simple ‘the very best to you’. Love was Christ’s ministry and we as people of all faiths, cultures and creeds should endeavor to live our lives with love and give of ourselves to make this world we live in a better place.

Toronto public housing tenants still waiting to be safe Pelham Park Gardens isn’t alone in its problems. But if its tenants feel alone, especially at night, who could blame them? Bad people come to the building at night, and no one is there to stop it. The west-end Toronto Community Housing Corporation complex was built for seniors, and once had nurses on staff. Now a lot of tenants are people with disabilities or mental illnesses. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, they prey on them,” says Cesar Palacio, the local councillor. “That enrages me.” Mayor John Tory set up a task force to “transform” the city housing authority. Many of its 2,200 buildings are crumbling, and the city falls farther behind on

MIkE ADLER Edges of Toronto repairs. The final task force report in January called for more services to protect vulnerable tenants, supplied perhaps by outside agencies, and for “quick and consistent procedures to deal with illegal and antisocial activity.” But all tenants seem to be getting are better security cameras because, as TCHC CEO Greg Spearn explained in Pelham Park last week, he never has

more than 16 to 18 security officers to respond to buildings across Toronto. Need overnight security? We can’t afford it, and furthermore Spearn says the authority doesn’t have legal means to “screen out the bad guys” on TCHC’s waiting list, though he’d love to. “I agree with the task force but without resources I can’t do anything about it,” he says, “and we’ve been asked to cut 2.6 per cent.” In April 2015, tenants at Scarborough Civic Centre told the task force how they needed TCHC to change. Several said security was their number one issue. They wanted overnight guards, not just cameras. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, people living there illegally. These people

should be out, because we have decent people waiting to take your spot,” said a woman from Gordonridge Place, Rita Nicolson. The nightly sense of lawlessness at Gordonridge and Pelham Park needs to end. People in each TCHC building want to help, but don’t want to risk their lives confronting trespassers and dangerous tenants when staff aren’t there. The mayor must remember that he promised to listen, he promised to help. Edges of Toronto is a column about how people see life in Toronto differently, depending on where they live.

Revenue tools just the first step to responsible governance DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Toronto Council will be asked to take a pretty bold step this month as it considers whether to follow Mayor John Tory’s lead and impose road tolls, a hotel tax and full-fare property tax on vacant commercial and industrial buildings. Council hasn’t been good at imposing these things in the past, but with Tory and his staff pushing stragglers into line, it’s likely that council will avoid a repeat of 2013, when they voted to consider exactly no new revenue tools to pay for the city’s infrastructure deficit. It’s a shame the mayor won’t be pushing as hard, or even at all, in the other direction: specifically, making sure that the $33 billion estimated unfunded infrastructure commitment isn’t filled with frivolous work. At the same time as he’s

DaviD Nickle The City arguing persuasively in favour of drawing in hundreds of millions of dollars a year in revenue from people driving on the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway, Tory might consider rethinking plans to rebuild a part of the expressway as an elevated highway that is starting to look like a white elephant. On the same Dec. 1 executive committee meeting as the revenue tools appear, a report from city staff notes that the plan to rebuild the eastern portion of the highway and rehabilitate the

rest, approved in 2015 by council, is going to cost a lot more than anticipated. According to the staff report, the original $2.6-billion project is now $3.623-billion. Council should look at the eastern portion that’s being rebuilt – which costs $1.4 billion, $468 million more than council approved in 2015, compared to a much less costly plan to remove that portion of the Gardiner and replace it with an atgrade boulevard. As matters stand, the Gardiner reconstruction sits with the Scarborough subway and the diminished SmartTrack plan, as another example of profligacy – and a barrier to the goal of fiscal balance that those tolls only approach.

Torontonians generous with giving over the holiday season

Loyal donors help keep not-for-profits in the green

FanniE SunSHinE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com With the holidays fast approaching, malls are becoming more crowded, store front windows are decorated with Christmas trees and all the trimmings, and charities have filled mailboxes and airwaves with calls for donations. And with a plethora of charities and not-for-profits vying for money from generous donors, some have had to change their approach and get more Internet savvy in hopes of collecting coin. When it’s time for North York Seniors Centre (NYSC) to target donors for its fundraisers, Jasmine Colibaba knows exactly where to find them - online. “We are focusing on the millennials,” said the centre’s development coordinator. “As a millennial myself, it’s so much easier to just give online. It’s the way the future is going. It’s the new focus. We have to think about how we can appeal to a larger audience. Twitter, LinkedIn, it’s all very important in getting our message out to a broader audience.” And luckily for NYSC, a not-for-profit organization providing programs and services for adults aged 55 and older, they don’t have to tug too hard on heart strings to get people to dig into their pockets. “Everyone has a grandma, grandpa,” Colibaba said. “They are vibrant, living in the community. But they are going to need help.”

She noted one third of all annual donations to NYSC are collected in December, adding the organization has a loyal donor base. According to a 2014 survey conducted on behalf of national charitable organization Imagine Canada, which examined holiday season charitable giving and attitudes about charitable donations, 62 per cent of Canadians intended to donate to charity over the holidays. Other findings included 33 per cent intended to volunteer their time, rather than money, to a charitable cause; 33 per cent wanted to set an

“We have to think about how we can appeal to a larger audience. Twitter, LinkedIn, it’s all very important in getting our message out to a broader audience.” – Jasmine Colibaba, North York Seniors Centre example for their children or others about the importance of giving back; 26 per cent planned to make a donation in someone’s honour in place of a traditional gift; 42 percent said were donating to experience the joy of giving and celebrate the spirit of the holidays; and 61 per cent of those not making a charitable donation cited lack of funds as the reason. Sam Fiorella, a professor at Seneca College’s school of marketing and managing director of notfor-profit corporation Lucas Fiorella Friendship

Bench, said holiday fundraising is a constant challenge for charities, with people choosing to spend their money on gifts. Yet on the flip side, those same people also feel more inspired to give in the name of someone else. “This time of year people are in a more charitable mood, and charities have to look to capitalize on that,” he said. “Our approach is not to wait until December to do something or launch a campaign. We build engagement throughout the year.” Families tend to make traditions of giving back, and one popular way is for kids to donate to a toy drive, he said. “Because more people have more today than 10 years ago, they are willing to give, but not cash,” Fiorella said. “They want to make it educational for their kids. Re-gifting a toy for a toy drive definitely hurts ability to raise cash.” But not all charities feel the pinch of a zipped up wallet come Christmas. Andrew Burditt, spokesperson for The Salvation Army Ontario Central East Division, said its Christmas Kettle Campaign, which has been in existence in Canada for more than a century, is still an effective way to raise funds over the holidays. “We set a $3 million goal in Toronto, and we’ve been fortunate to meet it the last few years,” he said. “The money stays in the community. So if you donate to a kettle at Yonge and Eglinton, the money stays in that community.” Burditt is aware not everyone can give cash donations, so he suggests donating time - like manning a kettle. “We find people do give with an open heart.”

Alex Sharpe, co-founder of Lanescape, listens to ideas and informs the community about the opportunities and challenges with laneway suites as a form of housing Monday, Nov. 28, at St. Mary’s Catholic School.

Laneway suites: The next housing option for Toronto

Residents offer feedback on the city’s idea Hilary Caton hcaton@insidetoronto.com

Close to 100 residents, most of whom have a coach house in the back of their property that could become a laneway suite, came out to the meeting to share their feedback. Many were in favour of the idea, but still had concerns such as size; increased traffic and density; privacy issues such as overlooking backyards; and the number of units permitted in a laneway suite. For homeowner Victor Pirrolas on Rusholme Road, a laneway suite is something they've been thinking about for a few years for family reasons. "With an elderly dad who will need some care, we thought this would be a great idea to have because he likes his independence but we're still close by," said Pirrolas. "There are so many condos going up everywhere, it's a different alternative. If controlled it can be a good option. This is a way for us to keep the family together." A city-wide consultation is set for Monday, Dec. 5 at Evergreen Brick Works. To participate in the Lanescape survey, visit www.lanescape.ca/ survey

Laneways are more than just a shortcut or a way to access a garage in the city. It's a space for the community, it's an activity space for kids and it could be the next housing option for Toronto. A potential housing option called 'laneway suites' was up for debate Monday night at St. Mary's Catholic school. The community consultation was hosted by the councillor for Ward 18 (Davenport) Ana Bailão and Ward 32 councillor (Beaches-East York) Mary-Margaret McMahon. The purpose of the meeting was to gather community input needed to begin crafting a set of guidelines for laneway suites to submit to Toronto and East York Community Council. "Councillor McMahon and I had many conversations about the issues of laneway suites and

laneways and how to make better use of them. And for me, it was the big housing issue," said Bailão. "We know the city is growing and we have a very low number of vacancy rentals. This could give homeowners the chance to afford their homes and could help people that rent because more units will be brought into the market ... What we're trying to do is we're trying to have a conversation with Torontonians. Is this viable? Should we do this? Is it worth it and how would we do it?" The consultation process is in partnership with Evergreen Brick Works and Lanescape, a group of professionals advocating for laneway suites in the city. Laneway suites are considered a detached unit at the back of a property adjacent to a laneway, and cannot be severed. "I ask people to think of it as their basement apartment. This is just another opportunity to have a secondary suite. We're basically taking the apartment out of the basement and putting it on top of the garage," Bailão explained.

Prime Minister Trudeau meets with Randy Boissonnault, Liberal MP for Edmonton and Canada’s first special advisor to the Prime Minister on LGBTQ2 issues, in his Centre Block office in Ottawa.

Cautious praise for Canada’s new LGBTQ advisor role JustiN skiNNer jskinner@insidetoronto.com

issues such as the recent police crackdown on public sex at Marie Curtis Park, which predominantly affected gay men, shows that there are issues that need looking at, she said. “There are a lot of factors to address, such as anti-black racism and the intersection of gender and race, and what’s happening at Marie Curtis Park and what it means that we’re still having bathhouse-style raids in 2016,� she said. Boissonault has said his focus will be on co-ordinating the government’s cross-ministry approach to LGBTQ2S issues, acting as focal point for the community and shining a light on important issues. Such issues include possible training for police, judges and customs officials to prevent discrimination based on sexuality, Canada’s one-year blood donation ban, and the contentious issue of required pronouns. “We’re looking at different models - going to homes, communities, universities to talk to students as well as faculty involved in research, corporate Canada, unions, social media,� he said. “We’ll also be learning from other countries that have moved ahead in this area.� - With files from Kim Zarzour

Canada’s new Special Advisor on LGBTQ issues will only be effective if he listens to the needs from across the LGBTQ diaspora, local advocacy groups say. The federal government appointed Edmonton Centre MP Randy Boissonault to the role in November, tasking the MP with coming up with means of promoting equality and human rights for members of the LGBTQ community and combating discrimination. According to some Toronto organizations that work closely with the LGBTQ community, however, there must be a focus on intersectionalities between race, gender and sexuality, as well as a concerted effort to ensure long-overlooked groups such as the trans community are given a place at the table. “Obviously, we’re pleased and think (Boissonault’s appointment) is a good first step toward ensuring LGBTQ2S issues are being considered at a national level,� said Maura Lawless, executive director of The 519, a multi-service organization that caters to the LGBTQ community. “But at the same time, we hope (Boissonault) recognizes that our commu-

nity is diverse and looks at the needs of low-income members, racialized members and all queer and trans folks.� Lawless said the trans community faces barriers with regard to employment and housing. Racialized and indigenous LGBTQ individuals also face different forms of discrimination above and beyond what white members of the community face. “(LGBTQ issues) have historically been seen as issues facing the gay men’s community,� Lawless said. “When looking at public policy, we hope they do an intersectional analysis and look at lived experiences.� Berkha Gupta, executive director of the Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Youth Line, concurred with the need for intersectional analysis and a holistic look at the LGBTQ community. “That the federal government is committed to this is great, but we’re waiting to see what that government commitment is,� she said. “We do hope a conversation around trans rights is at the front of this.� Gupta noted Boissonault’s appointment came at an interesting time, shortly after Donald Trump’s election, which led to a rise in hate crimes south of the border. That, combined with more local

Petkovic’s sudden death sparked a police investigation

● From page 1 she left the dog at home. “She’s thoughtful that way,” Desaulniers said. Petkovic, the youngest of six children, came to Canada from Croatia in 1965 and became a Canadian citizen seven years later. “She came for a better life, and Canada gave her the best life that she could ever dream of,” said Desaulniers. “She became fully integrated in Canada.” Petkovic worked all her life, first in a factory and then as a cleaning lady. But she always made sure to be home by 3 p.m. to care for her four children, Desaulniers said. “She raised us, and fed us three meals a day. She was a mother’s mother.” Desaulniers said her mom “had a love of life and was an incredibly hard worker.” “She was never afraid of work,” Desaulniers added.

Stefanie Petkovic, 73, who died suddenly while out for a walk in the Bloor and Lansdowne Avenue area Thursday morning. Here, she’s pictured with her poodle Sofie. Petkovic got her dog Sofie when she retired eight years ago. “(Sofie) was like her fifth child,” Desaulniers said. “She loved that dog.” Desaulniers said her mom was “well-loved” by everyone who knew her. “She never got into a confrontation with anybody.”

Desaulniers also had praise for police at 11 Division. “They were the perfect gentlemen,” she said. “They were sensitive, very empathetic and very gentle.” Petkovic leaves behind her children Branko, Marianne, Sandy and Susan, and her granddaughter Chelsea.

APPROVALS IN PLACE FOR KINGSWAY BY THE RIVER

E

Council Approves New Kingsway Neighbourhood Condo Development by Urban Capital and Northam Realty Advisors

tobicoke York Community Council recently supported a recommendation by staff to approve a development application by Urban Capital and Northam Realty Advisors, to create a mixed use development with two condominium buildings, stacked townhomes and retail space on a site at 4208 Dundas Street West. “We are thrilled by the recent Community Council decision approving the development of Kingsway by the River,” says Urban Capital partner, Mark Reeve. “Located in the heart of one of Toronto’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, on the banks of the Humber River, we are excited to introduce a new housing option for area residents and purchasers from across the GTA, looking for contemporary architecture in a beautiful natural setting.”

consideration of the target buyer, which the developers anticipate will skew heavily towards ‘end-users’ from the surrounding community, large suites (upwards of 1100 square feet) have been designed to include a range of

spacious suite layouts from one to three bedrooms. “Priced from $350,000 to just over $1,000,000 we believe these large yet affordable units will attract couples and families looking for value in an

unparalleled location,” says Mark Reeve, pointing out that the project is perched above the banks of the Humber River, offering “stunning riverfront views amid one of Toronto’s most beautiful and large park spaces.”

Reeve believes that Urban Capital understands the Kingsway communityits local attractions, lifestyle and sensibility- pointing to the company’s earlier neighbourhood development, called St. Andrew on the Green. Completed in 2008, this nine storey luxury development, just minutes from the company’s new site, helped introduce luxury condominium living to the community, and remains for today’s buyers, the standard for luxurious living and quality condominium design.

insidetoronto.com

Featuring architecture by the awardwinning firm of Wallman Architects, Kingsway by the River will feature a total of 351 condominium units across two towers (21 and 12 storeys), with an additional 80 stacked town homes. In

The suites and amenity spaces have been designed by celebrated interior designer Bryon Patton, who has interwoven a variety of design styles and artistic inspirations to create units that use elegant colours and luxurious materials, with an emphasis on texture rather than tone. The same elegant and distinctive design approach applies to the common areas and amenity spaces, which include a ground floor lounge, with fireplace and bar; a second floor fitness facility; and a seventh floor indoor social space connected to a large outdoor terrace, offering unparalleled views of the surrounding area.

Carlton Village stands up to violence against women

The students of Carlton Village Junior and Senior Sports and Wellness Academy painted the town orange, spreading the United Nations' antiviolence movement. The students walked down to 11 Division police station Friday morning Nov. 25 and strung up

hundreds of orange balloons, orange ribbons and streamers on boulevard trees. They also wrote messages of hope, courage, perseverance and optimism on the sidewalk with chalk. The event to "Colour the World Orange" was to commemorate the United

Nations' International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The event also included speeches by Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders, 11 Division unit commander Supt. Heinz Kuck, MP Julie Dzerowicz and principal Lorelei Eccleston.
