Proposed garden to transform road intersection

thurs dec 6, 2012

all aboard

Design plans to be unveiled Dec. 12

ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com The junction of Dundas Street West and Roncesvalles Avenue is a barren, odd and awkward intersection but a planned garden aims to shift the view into a celebration of its history. “The way you celebrate it is you make it green and you have a plaque and a place to sit and get out of the shade,” said Abby Bushby, the project co-ordinator of the Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden proj-

ect. The proposed garden, which would occupy the sizable triangle of concrete immediately south of where Roncesvalles Avenue and Dundas Street West connect and would be part of the 1812 Binational Peace Garden Trail network, a crossborder tourism initiative connected with the international peace garden foundation, which mark the sites of the War of 1812. Bushby said the garden can be a starting point of a conversation >>>LANDSCAPING, page 5

Clean Train Coalition to appeal court ruling rahul GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com The Clean Train Coalition has announced it will appeal a court judgment upholding diesel train usage on an air rail link currently under construction. In November, the coalition of west-end residents lost its legal bid for a judicial review of a decision by Metrolinx to run diesel trains on the Union Pearson Express (UP), formerly known as the air rail link, when the link connecting Pearson International Airport with Union Station via the Georgetown South GO rail corridor is completed by 2015. The group had argued in Ontario

Divisional Court a decision to order 18 diesel trains for use along the link should be re-opened on the grounds Metrolinx had not seriously considered clean-running electric trains as a viable alternative to diesel, which is considered a carcinogen by the World Health Organization. Clean Train is concerned the projected increase in diesel train traffic will result in serious long-term health and environmental consequences for thousands of residents living along the rail corridor. But a panel of three judges ruled unanimously in favour of Metrolinx, saying in a four-page judgement the provincial transit planning agency >>>ELECTRIFICATION, page 8

Longtime youth service centre in Dufferin Mall shuts its doors LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com Dufferin Mall Youth Services (DMYS) is closing its doors today after almost two decades in the community. Run by a group of agencies that pool their resources, DMYS has provided a myriad of activities and services like supportive counselling, employment counselling, medical treatment and social events over the years.

“Obviously, it’s a real loss for youth in this neighbourhood,” said Maureen Fair, executive director of St. Christopher House, the lead agency in co-ordinating and operating DMYS. “Youth services in general have had a real lack of funding. There hasn’t been sustained, long-term use funding for a very long time, especially in the downtown area.” Situated inside Dufferin Mall on Dufferin Street, just south of Bloor Street West, DMYS has been a one-

stop resource that has offered confidential storefront counselling and referral services to youth between the ages of 12 and 24 and their families. As many as 350 kids benefitted from DMYS at any one time. Teens and youth could meet with an employment counsellor who would help them with their resume writing and connect them with prospective employers on Wednesday afternoons from noon to 5 p.m. On >>>MALL’S, page 16

Brock P.S. unearths buried time capsule Contents revealed as part of 125th anniversary celebrations LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com Brock Public School Principal Victor Tran carried the black case into the gymnasium and placed it on top of the stage. Still dusty from being unearthed, the case was a time capsule buried 25 years ago in 1987. The school unveiled its contents at a special assembly recently, as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations. “Let’s see if you recognize some of these things,” Tran said to his Kindergarten to Grade 8 audience. “Look at this, it’s a VHS cassette. What is a VHS cassette?” To which a student responded, “A back-in-the-day DVD!” During the school’s centennial festivities in 1987, students buried

a time capsule in the wall of the new addition of the “general purpose” room. The capsule’s contents include the VHS tape of the Dec. 12 celebration, construction plans for the general purpose room, a copy of the Jubilee Edition of the school’s magazine the Brock Bugler and laminated copies of letters of congratulations from various public officials, such as then Toronto mayor Art Eggleton and Chris Ward, education minister. “Now, it’s our time to contribute to a time capsule – we will put the items in this capsule that are important to us,” Tran said. Each class contributed items including handmade books about what their Brock experience is all about. “We have a history book of

Brock – the last 25 years. We might throw a cellphone in there, too,” Tran said. Brock Avenue Public School opened its doors to students on Jan. 17, 1887. The school was constructed to alleviate the overcrowding at nearby Mabel Street School. The structure boasted four rooms and four teachers at the time. Two further additions were completed - the general purpose room in 1987, followed by another that expanded the size of the gymnasium. In celebration of its 125 years, the school held a day of activities, late last month which included a guided tour of the neighbourhood, a room of memories and cake cutting, among other things.

To the editor: Re: ‘Council needs to re-set priorities,’ Editorial, Nov. 29. Your editorial is insightful. Council should make an appointment and it should be an experienced councillor who will follow the agenda of Mayor Rob Ford. He was elected by a good majority of the voters and they deserve to have their wishes honoured. Spending $7 million on an election should not be considered. If the left votes for this course, it will be further proof they only care about trying to get back into power and continue with their lack of respect for the city taxpayers.

Toronto’s budget balancing act

W

hat must Toronto’s civic leaders accomplish as they shape the 2013 capital and operating budgets for the city? A number of things – and they form a balancing act between delivery of services and exhibiting fiscal responsibility. Budgets are complex documents and when discussions opened last week, it has already led to some heated disagreements on the floor of an already-polarized city council. But balance is in order and we offer the following suggestions to help guide the process: • Councillors must continue to engage with their constituents on what are priorities in their respective commu- our view nities. This is true whether the issue is sports arena fees, com- Have your munity policing or support for a say about festival. Local representation is the essence of the system that’s the budget in place. Our communities and neighbourhoods are the city’s building blocks. But they are unique and those wardlevel exchanges need to be taking place. • On the council floor there must be acknowledgement and careful consideration of all revenue tools, including property tax. While a sharp eye on expenditures is expected, it’s not realistic to dedicate oneself to one side of the ledger when trying to balance a budget. As impressive a feat as reducing expenditures in last year’s budget was, it’s not a sustainable practice for Toronto council. Tax increases are never popular (the budget currently proposes a modest 1.95 per cent jump) but they are among a limited set of tools available when one searches for solutions for revenue. • Finally, there must be a sense of direction for Toronto from the budget. Once approved, the budget must demonstrate progress toward getting the city back on sustainable footing financially. The days of relying on provincial bailouts are gone. The previous year’s budget was a positive step forward. This upcoming budget must continue on that path. Budgets are a balancing act. It’s about identifying priorities and delivering cost-effective services. Unfortunately, it’s also about understanding that we can’t afford everything we may want in this city – especially if we are unwilling to pay for it. Next week, public hearings are scheduled on the budget. We encourage you to make it out to Toronto City Hall to offer your input or to contact your local councillor. The executive committee and council will approve the final budget in January. newsroom

Consultation with voters is preferred option

O

dds are that should the time come that council has a choice on what to do about a vacant mayor’s office, they’ll choose to hold a byelection. Certainly, that’s what councillors who have been asked about it have said. And certainly Mayor Rob Ford, facing eviction from office, has said he’d be happy to put his name forward in one. But as the past two years have shown us, anything can happen with this council. And with a price tag of $7 million, it’s by no means a certainty that a majority of councillors will vote to spend that money on a byelection and not to bolster some cash-starved programs in the 2013 operating budget. As tempting as saving cash with an appointment might be, councillors should resist. Even if Mayor Ford’s personal behaviour wasn’t precipitating the event, at this point the city can only benefit from a quick and official consultation with the voters. In 2010, Ford was elected

THE CITY

david nickle

with a powerful mandate, from an electorate who in the main were interested in a more conservative approach to municipal government. They believed Ford when as a long-serving city councillor he said the city government was bloated with what he called gravy, and they voted for him on the assumption that he would be able to extract that gravy without meaningfully affecting services. Particularly in Scarborough, they accepted Ford’s assurance that he would be able to build a subway using private sector money. They understood that his slogan Respect for Taxpayers meant that when elected mayor, he would show respect for all taxpayers. What Toronto got was something very different. Mayor Ford appears to

have been wrong about the gravy; there’s not very much at all as it turns out. He couldn’t deliver a subway without significant public investment and the support of council, and both of those were absent. As for respecting taxpayers, even disregarding the mayor’s behaviour surrounding football, it’s hard to forget the 24-hour standoff between the executive committee and the public when the administration brought forward its core services review or the ugly red-baiting that the administration tolerated in its supporters. Torontonians voted, then, for an agenda that turned out to be chimeric. And an appointment of an interim mayor that either attempts to continue that imaginary agenda, or one from the left that repudiates it, would amount to a rejection of the popular will of Toronto voters. A byelection, as costly as it is, is essential for the short and long-term health of this city. If Torontonians want to continue with some measure of the Fords’ conserva-

tive agenda at city hall as they supported, they ought to have the opportunity to say so. If they want to change direction mid-term, having lost their taste for it in the past two years, they ought to be able to say that too. Two years into the term, it may or may not be time for a new mayor. But it’s past time for a new mandate. n David Nickle is The Villager’s City Hall columnist. His column appears every Thursday.

>>>from page 1 about the war that shaped Canada. This portion of Dundas Street was constructed as a military road for the defense of York, the capital of Upper Canada, in 1812. Aboriginal warriors attempted to ward off the landing of the American fleet in April 1813. The garden would honour the men who built the road as well as those warriors. Bushby, a resident of Roncesvalles Village, became interested in the intersection more than 15 years ago, while walking her daughter to Howard Public School and trying to negotiate it. “My first interest was to have the traffic and pedestrian problems fixed,” she said. The sidewalks have been widened since then, making it safer, and

Bushby said she expects to see more improvements come as pedestrian traffic increases in the area. For now, the Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden group is working to develop and implement a plan to redevelop the concrete triangle into a garden. NAK Design Strategies, a private landscape firm on Roncesvalles, is developing the landscape design. Bushby said NAK has come up with a plan that considers public input while meeting the city’s technical requirements. The recommended landscape design will be presented to the community Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. at Fern School, 128 Fern Ave. Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden group had applied and hoped to receive some War of 1812 project

Start your fitness revolution at Stockyards Seven years ago, Junmar Emon was 20 years old, 5’6”, and 225 lbs. The young man found he couldn’t make it up a flight of stairs without stopping to catch his breath. Determined to make a change, Emon started boxing at Stockyards Boxing and Fitness, and the out-of-shape man he remembers from 2004 seems like nothing more than a distant memory.

Emon, who is now an instructor at Stockyards, just won his second professional boxing match in the welterweight division (147lbs). That’s right -147lbs. A High Park resident that grew up in Parkdale, Emon had initially started boxing as a way to get into shape and lose weight, but as he shed the weight, he decided he wanted to compete. His first bout

was in 2006 at 180lbs. He ended his amateur career in February of this year, boxing at 152lbs with an amateur record of 28 wins and 12 losses. Trained and managed by Stockyards owner Rick Souce, Emon’s first professional bout was in May 2012 at the Hershey Center in Mississauga, where he won a lopsided unanimous

decision against Hamilton’s Daryl Perron. In his second professional bout he fought Ryan McGrady, the former National Nova Scotia Amateur Champion, who also sported an undefeated record of 1-0. Emon once again put on a solid performance in another unanimous decision. Emon’s goal is to become Ca-

Electrification to be a priority: Metrolinx CEO >>>from page 1 was within its mandate to accept direction from the province, which wants the link completed in time for the Toronto Pan American Games and for diesel trains to run at first before they are eventually converted to electric. Late Monday, Clean Train announced it was seeking leave to appeal the verdict to the Ontario Court of Appeal. “The Divisional Court basically said its doors are closed to citizens seeking protection against decisions by government agencies that may cause harm to health or the environment,” said the group’s legal counsel Saba Ahmad in a statement released on Dec. 4. Spokesperson Tim Noronha said another reason for an appeal was overturning the court’s decision to require Clean Train to pay Metrolinx legal fees of $30,000, which he believed was sending a discouraging message to small groups opposing government decisions. “We rely on donations and if a grassroots group like us is stifled, that’s not good for democracy,” said Noronha on Tuesday morning. “All we’re asking for is a feasibility study. It’s hard to believe the government would line up a service against the clear objections

of the community.” Last week, as part of an update of the ambitious Big Move regional transportation plan, Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig announced electrification for the new link would receive priority for completion – provided funding is approved. “We’ve previously said electrification is a priority for our organization and we’ve already started an environmental assessment (EA) for the first phase of that, which is the air rail link,” McCuaig said at the time. In 2011, the agency’s board of directors endorsed electrifying both the Georgetown South and Lakeshore rail corridors. The EA for the link itself is expected to be completed in 2014. But both Metrolinx and provincial transportation minister Bob Chiarelli have insisted electrification of the link will not be completed in time for UP’s 2015 opening. A target date for completion has been set for 2017 if the money is available for electrification. In an email sent to the Villager on Tuesday morning Metrolinx spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins said the agency hadn’t received any notices regarding Clean Train’s intentions and would consider its options if an appeal is granted. “Metrolinx remains committed to building the Union Pearson Express in an environmentally responsible way,” wrote Aikins.

Update your kitchen with a little elbow grease With a little bit of elbow grease, and everyday household ingredients, your kitchen appliances can look (and smell) like new, ready for your next open house. Dishwasher: Most homeowners believe that the regular use of a commercial rinse aid is enough to keep a dishwasher clean. Regularly cleaning the seams and liner of your dishwasher is also imperative to its effectiveness. Over time, residue and food particles build up, and can affect the outcome of your wash cycle. Bacteria buildup can also cause lingering, unpleasant odours. Use a scouring pad dipped in baking soda to remove residue and stains from the interior surface and crevices of your dishwasher. Next, fill the detergent pocket with lemonade powder (yes, lemonade) and run a regular cycle (or cleaning cycle). The ascorbic acid in the powder will help to safely remove any remaining buildup, and will leave your dishwasher smelling clean and fresh. Oven/ Range: Cleaning an oven can be a tough job. However there are natural and effective alternatives for cleaning even the toughest baked-on spills. Start by loosening any baked-on food inside your oven using a plastic spatula. Next, squeeze the juice from 2 lemons into an oven safe dish, and throw in the lemon remains. Turn on your oven and bake the lemons/juice for 30 minutes at 250 degrees. The citric acid will help to loosen any residue

that may still be inside your oven, while releasing a fresh lemon scent. Using the rough side of a scouring sponge dipped in baking soda, scrub away the remaining debris, and wipe the oven clean using a cloth and warm water. You’ll be amazed at how fresh your next lasagna will taste, after being baked in a naturally cleaned oven. Refrigerator: It’s hard to believe that the cleanliness of your fridge can impact the taste and lifespan of your non- perishable foods. Cleaning your refrigerator monthly with natural ingredients can dramatically extend the life and quality of your produce. Start by removing all of the food from your refrigerator and discarding items that are aged or expired. Combine ½ cup of baking soda with 1 tbsp of vinegar and stir to form a thick paste. Apply a small amount of paste to a soft scouring pad, and scrub away any stains that may exist. Follow by wiping the refrigerator clean with a damp sponge (an old toothbrush can be used on small spaces and crevices as well. ) Shelves and drawers should be removed for cleaning if necessary. Don’t forget to vacuum the undercarriage of your fridge, and to wipe down the outside using a cloth with warm water and vinegar. The same steps can be followed to clean your freezer, however you’ll need to work quickly and use hot water to rinse.

tions and gifts under the Christmas tree, the holidays present many exciting – and potentially dangerous – new situations for your little furry friends. The following are tips to help pet-parents prepare for changes in the home this holiday season. • Deck the halls with tape and cord covers. Christmas decorations mean extra electrical cords, plugs and plenty of tempting new “chew toys”. Pet-parents should take the extra time during decorating to tape down or cover cords to help prevent shocks, burns or more serious injuries. • Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, aren’t good for pets. We often think we’re treating our little ones with table scraps but this “treat” can be harmful since dogs and cats do not have the same digestive systems or nutri-

tional needs as people. Chocolate contains the heart stimulant theobromine, which, even in small quantities, can be toxic to dogs and cats. Keep pet-friendly treats on-hand instead, so they munch safely while still enjoying the feasting fun. • Holly is not so jolly for pet. Some of our favourite seasonal décor is harmless for humans, but can be unsafe for animals. Mistletoe, holly berries and poinsettia plants are poisonous to pets, causing severe, upset stomachs. Consider using repellent sprays or a doggie gate to help keep thems away from harmful areas and objects.

Introducing a pet into your home may not be as difficult as you think. Pets enrich our lives and bring happiness to our homes, but careful preparation is necessary for such a commitment. You can make the process easier with a few helpful tips.

Most pets do not come trained and they certainly don’t know what’s safe to chew. By crating your pet when you are away, you ensure that your possessions are left intact and your pet’s safety is put first. In addition to protecting your belongings, crating your pet will encourage good behaviour during the most formative years.

SECURE YOUR KITCHEN CABINETS There are many kitchen items that are deadly to animals. Contact your

veterinarian for a list of these products and secure your cabinets with child-proof locks. Keep your trash can tightly lidded.

MAKE SURE YOUR HEATING AND AIR VENTS HAVE ADEQUATE COVERS If you are bringing home a ‘pocket pet,’ such as a hamster or guinea pig, you may be surprised at the tiny areas your new friend can squeeze into. By placing closely-grated covers on your vents, you ensure the safety of your pet. You also prevent fur and hair from clogging your air ducts and decreasing your home’s overall efficiency. If you are ready to make a commitment to pet ownership, these small and simple home preparations can make the transition much less complicated.
