Development planned for Bloor/Dovercourt Lisa RainfoRd lrainford@insidetoronto.com Bloorcourt residents who attended a pre-application meeting to discuss the future of a property on the northwest corner of Bloor Street West and Dovercourt Road remained skeptical of a developer’s assurances that their input will have an impact. The proposed mixed-use, mid-rise project’s height, massing, setbacks and design materials have yet to be determined, stressed Daniel Byrne, vice-president of development at Main and Main, the real estate developer that purchased 980-990 Bloor St. W. and 756

What’s missing? What are your goals for new development in the area? What do you want to tell us? The area has been designated mixed-use, which allows for a combination of residential and commercial uses and allows for 16 metres in height, about three to five storeys, city planner Barry Brooks said. >>>character, page 6

transit

Discussion panel on ‘last mile’ dilemma Rahul Gupta rgupta@insidetoronto.com It’s something urban planners have grappled with for decades: how to improve the last mile of travel between a transit station and home or work. A group of transportation experts sought answers to that very question during the Solving the Last Mile discussion at Ryerson University. The event was sold out for weeks, and even became a trending Twitter topic Tuesday evening. Moderated by broadcaster Steve Paikin, a discussion “unpanel” spent nearly two hours debating solutions on better linking that last mile of transit access. For millions of regional commuters, the answer to the last mile is using infrequent and unreliable transit. Antoine Belaieff from Metrolinx said the agency has to provide significant amounts of free parking at its stations to entice commuters, even though it means swallowing up valuable land

to build lots and requiring significant provincial subsidy for operations. “We have steadily increased parking where we are one of the largest authorities in North America now,” said Belaieff, Metrolinx’s director for regional planning. “More and more we’re running out of land and hitting against physical constraints, such as local roads, which are congested. “Each new space we build in a parking garage is about $40,000...so each time you drive to the station, the government writes a $40,000 cheque to store your car during the day.” Lauren Isaac pushed emerging technology as a potential solution to the last mile conundrum. The San Francisco transportation manager and blogger said Bay Area transit has increasingly partnered with private sector tech companies to provide shuttle or carpooling services. “In the Bay Area we’re living and breathing these tech startups every day,

and it feels like there’s a new carpooling app every month,” Isaac said. Not only is partnering with tech companies a win for local transit, it also affords the opportunity for data collection on transportation habits to inform future planning, Isaac said. ‘Solutions for improving the last mile will come with better land use decisions than they will from seeking to reduce trip times, argued Ryerson professor Mustafa Haider. “You have to understand

congestion is a sign of economic health,” Haider said. “Detroit solved its traffic issues by going bankrupt.” Haider said the greater concern is the politically driven building of new transit, which has distorted property values, as seen by new housing development near stations pricing out large segments of the population.” To solve last mile and transportation problems, we have to stop politicians from making these decisions, which are really hurting us and the country.”

In spite of Parkdale-High Park councillor Sarah Doucette’s efforts – with support from her constituents – EtobicokeYork Community Council voted against the proposal to reduce the speed limit on residential streets to 30 kilometres per hour. “Despite the evidence that a ward-wide lower speed limit would reduce fatalities, create consistency for motorists and save the city money, a majority of councillors at community council voted to maintain the existing street-by-street approach to speed limit reductions,” Doucette said in her weekly e-newsletter to community members. The councillor thanked everyone who signed the petition, wrote a letter or spoke at the community council meeting Sept. 7. “Our local residents’ associations, (Business Improvement Areas) and community groups were

instrumental in getting this issue on the agenda and I will be taking that momentum forward as we work to take full advantage of measures included in the city’s new road safety plan, particularly in areas near local schools,” Doucette said. Toronto council unanimously endorsed the fiveyear road safety plan with the vision to reduce the number of road fatalities and serious injuries to zero. Using the plan as a guide, Doucette said she has been looking at local schools and surrounding streets to see where safety improvements could be made. These improvements could include new school zone markings, ‘Watch Your Speed’ signs and speed limit reductions. To implement such measures, the councillor said she would work with the city’s transportation services, local school trustees, parent councils and residents. Visit bit.ly/roadsto for details.


it’s not always black & white

BY KIM ZARZOUR kzarzour@yrmg.com

Do gender-based words affect our behaviour? Remember baby Storm? The Toronto baby took the world by storm in 2011 when her parents decided not to reveal her gender to the world for her first years of life. Parents Kathy Witterick and David Stock wanted to let Storm decide what gender to identify with and, five years later, she is a she. What happens when we erase gender divisions? Does going gender-free impact our behaviour? The research is unclear. Lynn Liben, a psychologist at Penn State, studied preschool classes to look at the effects of gender-coded language. She found when teachers lined children up by gender and emphasized gender in speech (“Good morning, boys and girls”) students showed an increase in gender-stereotyped attitudes toward each other and their choice of toys. On the other hand, researchers Kumiko Fukumura (University of Strathclyde, Scotland), Jukka Hyönä and Merete Scholfield (University of Turku, Finland), found no correlation between the pronoun system we use and our gender thinking. In the Finnish language, genders are not differentiated; “hän” refers equally to both females and males, and yet Finns do not think about the gender of people any differently than speakers of English, the researchers report.

It used to be so simple, back in the days of Dick and Jane primary school readers. We learned grammar by memorizing basic rules. Dick was a ‘he’, Jane was a ‘she’, Spot was a dog and together they were … well, they. Turns out, it wasn’t so simple after all. Those clear-cut rules didn’t fit everyone and today those who don’t fit are speaking out, sparking what could be a linguistic revolution. The two-gender, binary world of male and female is shifting. We now have gender-neutral driver’s licences, gender-free washrooms, Toby’s Law enshrining transgender people’s rights in Ontario, and Bill C-16 working to do the same across Canada. And increasingly, people are adopting a cornucopia of alternative pronouns to the traditional he and she. “Gender is not black and white, but language is,” explained Chris Talbot, a female-to male transgender youth from Newmarket. Talbot, 18, prefers to be called he. He spoke with his guidance office in Grade 10 and soon his entire high school had switched references to he.

Today, Talbot is studying at Georgian College in Orillia, making use of gender-free washrooms on campus, readily accepted by his male roommates in his school dorm. “People have been amazing about it, really. I’ve never had a bad experience, no bullying, no judging,” he said. “Maybe it’s because (trans issues) are all over social media, but it has been easier than I thought.” Switching pronouns isn’t smooth for everyone, especially for those who don’t identify as male or female. At 16, Beatrice Vandikas stumbled upon new pronouns being used by an online blogger: fae and faer. “I’d been using they and them not realizing there was anything else. I was elated. I thought, Oh my gosh, that’s perfect! That’s me!” Vandikas had been dating a trans man at the time, dealing with “nasty rumours” in a small-town community, and did not start using those pronouns right away. Now Vandikas is more comfortable using fae (for she/he) and faer (for his/hers/him) – but also less upset when people don’t. Language is constantly evolving, Vandikas said. “It shouldn’t be that difficult, but changes like that are really hard for people, especially when they’re older.”

How you can be gender sensitive ■ If you are uncertain about the gender identity of another person and have to refer to them in the third person, use they or them. ■ It is OK to politely ask which gender pronoun a person prefers. ■ If someone explains they are a trans woman, do not use masculine pronouns. ■ If someone explains they are a trans man, do not use feminine pronouns. ■ If you work in an office that has intake forms, include X or Other (if you absolutely must collect information about gender – but consider that you may not actually need information about gender). ■ If you work in a recreation facility, ensure there are trans-positive policies in place so that gender variant people can use the facilities without harassment. ■ Make sure there are gender-neutral bathroom options in your place of work. Source: Sheila Cavanagh, associate professor, York University

Chris Talbot is a female-to-male transgender youth. He is studying at Georgian College in Orillia, making use of gender-free washrooms on campus.

Vandikas’ parents, for example, haven’t yet fully embraced the concept. Faer mother once asked faer to help her understand how fae would like her to talk about faer. Fae was encouraged, but faer mother’s use of the pronouns didn’t last – maybe, fae said, because it was such a foreign concept to the older generation, “so I just said to myself, she’s my mom, I’ll deal with it.” Reading that sentence may have been challenging for even the most open-minded readers, but Vandikas, and others who hope the English language evolves, said it’s worth the trouble. Respecting others is more important than being grammatically correct. Words hold power, Vandikas noted, especially when they feel wrong and especially when you have an identity disorder and rely on that perfect pronoun to understand who you are and find a sense of community. “When people say gender pronouns are too confusing, what they

are really saying is they don’t want to take the time to question their assumptions about gender,” said York University associate professor Sheila Cavanagh. Gender is more complicated and nuanced than simple male and female, she said. “The importance of language, and gender pronoun usage, should not be underestimated.” Increasingly, professors at York U. and other North American postsecondary schools ask students to indicate their preferred gender pronoun when they introduce themselves. Some go further, allowing students to register their pronouns in the university computer systems; professors are urged to include their pronouns in email signatures. Alicia Lapointe, PhD candidate at the University of Western Ontario faculty of education, suggested it may be easier for youth, who tend to view gender and sexuality differently. “They’re more fluid and open about it. By high school or postsecondary, it’s too late to unlearn any transphobia or homophobia. Elementary students, in particular, are often bullied because of gender expression.” Lapointe uses nametags that say “please use … pronouns” and introduces herself with: I’m Alicia and I use she, her, hers pronouns. “It’s a way to get people to see that you shouldn’t assume,” she said. “I don’t think we lose anything by acknowledging our wide diversity, or celebrating it. Our society is only better if we celebrate everyone for who they are.”

Respect key to gender evolution

WRitE uS

W

e are breaking ground and removing barriers while navigating a cultural shift that has been referred to as the new post-gender era. In a relatively short time period, we have discovered the segregation of the sexes and the use of the pronouns he or she have been identified as obstacles as we welcome transgender people to our table of diversity. The two-gender, binary world of male and female is shifting. We now have gender-neutral driver’s licences, gender-free washrooms, Toby’s Law enshrining transgender people’s rights in Ontario and Bill C-16 working to do the same across Canada. And increasingly, people are adopting a cornucopia of alternative pronouns to the traditional he and she. Like any cultural shift, we are learning through and reacting by altering OuR ViEW listening our language and behaviours to reflect what we’ve discovered. In Hear the short, we are in the midst of a linguistic revolution that will impact voices for many facets of our lives before it ends. change A recent Angus Reid survey had promising results. Nearly 80 per cent of those participating agree Canada should work to accommodate and protect transgender people in society. To better educate our readers, Metroland has embarked on a three-part series that starts today and continues for the next two weeks to explore the linguistic and cultural implications of these changes. You will hear why the change is needed through the voices of those interviewed by reporter Kim Zarzour throughout her series. Studies show 47 per cent of transgender people have either considered suicide, attempted suicide or self-harmed in the course of their lives, according to Sawyer Arnold, director of Trans Inclusion, PFLAGDurham. “By referring to them by the incorrect gender, you increase the risk and add to the emotional distress,” Sawyer said. Proponents of gender-free washrooms cite safety concerns. Statistics show shockingly high levels of sexual abuse and assault against transgender people. For these people, simply choosing which washroom to use can be a daily dilemma. Changes in language and attitude will help. These changes are organic and will take time to evolve. Respect and decency should be foremost in our discussions.

Rail deck park a good idea, but costly

T

oday, Mayor John Tory’s executive committee turns its eye to an ambitious and expensive plan – to build a “rail deck” park, which is to say a park built literally on a deck, spanning over the downtown rail corridor from Bathurst Street to Blue Jays Way. It is certainly ambitious – the park would cover 21 acres of rail lands that currently divide downtown Toronto from its waterfront communities, and replace them with a green swathe of parkland that would provide some recreational relief for one of the fastestgrowing communities of tower dwellers in the country. And, oh Lord, it is going to be expensive: more than $1 billion to construct, according to very preliminary estimates, and more than that to secure the air rights from Metrolinx and CN over those tracks that will allow construction to

david nickle the city take place at all. The executive committee won’t be signing off on that at its September meeting – before that it is just a couple of million dollars, to refine the plans and move things along to the next stage. It’s hard to say that the idea of the park is not a good idea. Downtown Toronto is growing into a giant and potentially precarious residential community, made up of individuals and families squeezed into often very tiny quarters, and the real estate is getting swallowed up. Waiting another five years until the population reaches its breaking point, and then trying to acquire large-sized parkland from the remaining scraps could well be even more

expensive or, worse, simply impossible. The trouble is that while the rail deck park is a good idea, it isn’t the only idea that has caught the eye of Mayor Tory’s council. The city is spending about as much as the rail deck park just a few kilometres to the east, replacing the Gardiner Expressway there with another elevated expressway, against the long-term advice of city planners. A few more kilometres to the east, council has committed to building a onestop subway extension into Scarborough that costs as much again. And if the park is to go ahead, all of that – park included – will have to be paid for, almost certainly with money that comes from taxes and other revenues drawn from Toronto’s residents. Perhaps this will provide incentive for Toronto council to take its forthcoming

debate on revenue tools more seriously. The mayor, and a majority of council, have made it clear that property taxes are not a candidate for enhancement – and they’ve also made it clear that they don’t want to see the city sit still when it comes to improving and expanding its infrastructure. We should have parks. We should have subways, and light rail. And council has decided that we should have a great elevated highway to aid motorists getting to and through the city’s downtown. But it all leads to a bill that someone will have to pay – and having solidified our aspirations as we have, whoever pays that bill is going to need deep pockets.

High Park a constant focus for David Allen Photographer marks 50 years in Canada LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com Cheltenham, England native David Allen and three of his blokes arrived in Montreal on Sept. 6, 1966 after a seven-day trip aboard the ocean liner Franconia, before boarding a night train to Toronto. At the time, Allen was 18 and the youngest of his friends to leave his family and all that was familiar to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. Arriving in another country, “it was beyond my wildest dreams,” Allen recalled during a recent conversation at the Grenadier Cafe in High Park. “There was nothing for us in England.” With dark tousled hair and each wearing black, gold, and grey Cheltenham Art College

scarves – even though they never went to college – the four young men resembled a certain English rock band (Beatlemania was at its height at the time). It was an adjustment, to

say the least, adapting to his new surroundings. Allen’s first winter was particularly cruel and its severity, he said, he could not have anticipated. Walking down Yonge Street

wearing only a corduroy jacket, “I remember crying,” he said. “But, I didn’t have the money to go back. My dad said, ‘You’ve made your bed, now live in it.’”

THORNCREST FORD!

And so he immersed himself in Toronto’s multiculturalism. Allen became a successful photographer, operating his own studio for three decades. He is perhaps best known for his images of High Park, which he’s been capturing since 2005. They can be seen hanging in the Grenadier Cafe. He also produces greeting cards and an annual calendar featuring his photographs of High Park. He met his wife in 1971 when he rented an apartment in the house she and her sister owned. Allen became a Canadian citizen in 1977 before he and his wife settled in Bloor West Village in 1983. The couple has two grown daughters and love to dote on their grandchildren. Allen marks his 50th anniversary in Toronto this month, a milestone he is celebrating by returning to England to visit family, including two sisters, his older brother, a brother-in-law, cousin, and niece.

The self-described steam engine buff is joining family members for a day-long train trip, among other activities. Certain life events stand out for Allen, such as his first job as a mail boy at the ad agency J. Walter Thomson where he earned $75 a week ($48 net). In 1968, he hitchhiked to California’s Monterey Pop Festival where he recalled hanging out with Canadian singer-songwriter-poet-novelist Leonard Cohen and his then-girlfriend and running across the Golden Gate Bridge singing San Francisco Nights by the Animals. Allen launches his 2017 calendar at the High Park Harvest Festival on Oct. 4. at Colborne Lodge. He will lead an Autumn Splendour Photo-Buff walk in High Park Oct. 16.

Character of neighbourhoood must be maintained: residents >>>from page 1 “There are a fair number of vacant stores along this stretch. This might be the catalyst to improve this section of Bloor Street.” When initially approached about its plan to redevelop the site, Davenport Councillor Ana Bailão said she told Main and Main the neighbourhood needs family-sized residential units and that because the laneway behind the property faces Westmoreland Parkette,

she would like to see it “reimagined.” Residents were curious what demographic the proposed mixed-use condo building would target and if it would include affordable units. Byrne said that because of the cost structure of the project it prohibits the inclusion of affordable units. The typical demographic of the condo buyer in Toronto, he said, is mid-20s to mid-40s. “There are lots of ma and pa

shops, ethnic grocery stores and lots of people who work in the arts. I want our neighbourhood to maintain its flavour,” long-time resident Erella Ganon said. Main and Main is committed to “building a good project with contribution to the neighbourhood,” Byrne said. When pressed to share the vision for the property, Byrne said part of the process is coming up with a vision. “The intention of this meet-

ing is to hear what you want,” he said. Bloorcourt is special, residents agreed, because of its diversity and personality, architectural heritage and neighbourhood character. “I’d like to understand how to protect and celebrate the heritage of the area,” Byrne said. Contact Bailão’s office at councillor_bailao@toronto. ca or 416-392-7012 for more information.

Business: Discover a refuge in your backyard. Birding experts and nature lovers Jim and Lynda Mackiewicz — once customers of Wild Birds Unlimited in Etobicoke— purchased the store 16 years ago. They have been imparting their birding knowledge and expertly recommending regionally formulated bird seed, feeders and hardware to hobbyists in the community ever since!

“In our first month advertising with Metroland our sales were up

25%!”

“We’re really serious about being the local backyard bird feeding experts,” says Jim. Everyone who works in the store goes through rigorous training, ending with a 120-question test, to make sure every customer gets the best advice.

Solution: They started a yearlong advertising campaign in the Etobicoke Guardian in June to build their brand and presence in the community. Wild Birds Unlimited advertised a coupon offering a free bag of birdseed to get new customers in the door. 102 coupons were redeemed within a week, 60 of which were new customers. While redeeming their free bag, coupon users in-store spending totalled more than $1000. “We wanted to let the community know we’re the local birding experts in Etobicoke and get them in the door with our seasonal promotions. We’re finding the newspaper a great way to accomplish it all.”


HOT lanes receive lukewarm response A road toll advocacy group is lukewarm on the province’s first HOT lane. The high occupancy toll lane was recently introduced along the QEW, between Burlington and Oakville, charging single-occupant drivers, who have signed up, a fee for use. The lanes remain free for carpooling provided vehicles contain at least one passenger. It will cost $180 for three months’ HOT lane use, but Transport Futures doesn’t believe it’s enough to persuade people to get out of their congestion-causing cars and onto public transport. In an email, the group that organizes the annual Transport Futures road pricing conference, points out HOT lane use will cost $3 maximum for two-way daily use – less than half that of equivalent trips made on GO Transit. The group wants HOT lane costs to jump to $6.45 a day, equal to the current daily round-trip GO fare.

Plans for redevelopment have been a decade in the making >>>from page 1 bathroom, regardless of the room size, said Shelley Ditty, vice-president of planning and development, Tuesday. “There will be opportunity for dining rooms, shared therapy space, and improved gym equipment,” Ditty said, citing just a few features of the new facility. Redevelopment of the specialized rehabilitation and complex continuing care hospital, located at 82 Buttonville

Ave. (in the area of Jane Street and Eglinton Avenue), has been in the works for more than a decade. It was time to update the health care centre’s services and facilities to serve the ever-growing population while meeting the latest accessibility standards and control practices. The current hospital will remain fully operational while the new one is being constructed, Ditty said. “Once we build it, we’ll

Parkdale High Park Youth Council

move into the new space,” she said. The 750,000-square-foot hospital will include new services, such as geriatric clinics and renal dialysis, therapy gyms on each floor to reduce the distance patients must travel, and an increase to outpatient therapy space to accommodate double the number of patients currently cared for. “We will keep the park in West Park,” Lijeanne Lee,

WHERE THE LEADER OF TODAY COME TOGETHER AND HELP SHAPE THE CANADA OF TOMORROW.

spokesperson for campus development, stressed. The redevelopment will increase the centre’s green space from 57 to 61 per cent of its land area in part by demolishing the Main, Ruddy and Gage patient care and maintenance buildings and by adding underground parking. “Our natural environment is an asset for the health and well-being of our patients and staff,” Ditty said. That’s why the redevelopment will see the creation of gardens as program areas, extensive landscaping and more efficient use of the green space. There will be walking paths, not only for hospital use,

but also for residents. “It’s about finding a balance between what our patients need and what the community would like,” Ditty said. There are two capital projects underway simultaneously, which campus development staff is referring to as the hospital development and the non-hospital development. The hospital development includes construction of the new hospital, demolition of Main, Ruddy, and Gage buildings, the creation of outdoor therapy space and landscaped gardens as well as a new entrance from Emmett Avenue. Meanwhile, the non-hos-

pital development focuses on programs and services, like supportive housing and hospice care; communitybased services; and seniors and individuals who have disabilities. Patients are taking an active role in what the new hospital will look like. Recently, the centre created a mock-up of what a life-sized room would look like and invited patients to take a look and provide feedback, Lee said. Construction is set to begin in 2018.
