MIKE ADLER Edges of Toronto Region Labour Council, which also has volunteers from the Filipino, Chinese, Somali, Ethiopian and Eritrean communities. The networks formed because unions weren’t getting into ethnic communities, and people from these ethnicities could sidestep communication barriers and suspicions, says Ram Selvarajah, a member of the Tamil network. Concerns about New Canadians working in Toronto are wellfounded: in a 2013 survey 20 per cent of Mandarin-speaking recent immigrants here weren’t paid minimum wage, and only

half received paid public holidays. "The myth immigrants are brought up to believe is you work 80 hours," says Selvarajah, adding young Tamils arriving here in the 1990s felt extra pressure to work. There were Tamil gangs in Toronto then, Selvarajah says, so parents thought, "you were working or you were in trouble." Antonipillai and Selvarajah say Toronto employers still "pit" recent immigrants who won’t insist on their rights against other Canadians. They know immigrant women, in particular, "have less resources to fight back," adds Antonipillai, who argues 90 per cent Toronto’s kitchen staff are Tamil for the same reason. Selvarajah meets seniors working in Tamil stores for $5 an hour, under the table, looking on their employers as friends. He tells them standing up for yourself, "isn’t a betrayal, it’s actually the right thing to do."

A small initiative can have a big, lasting impact in the lives of others. Those children will not forget the day the Stanley Cup came to their community.

When Pragosh Antonipillai was young, he and his cousins worked well over 40 hours a week at Tim Hortons.They didn’t get overtime, and didn’t ask. They worked 12 or 24 hours at a stretch when their downtown Toronto stores were short-handed. "We would sleep on sugar bags in the back because that’s what we thought it means to be a good worker," Antonipillai recalls. For a first-generation TamilCanadian, this was normal, even expected, he says. Antonipillai’s parents were proud; at 15 and 16 he was making more than his dad as a Canadian Tire cashier. But working 30 hours a week while in high school tired him out. "People would assume I’m just this terrible student," says Antonipillai, who now volunteers with Tamil employees in Greater Toronto, including youth going through what he once did. His small group is a "diversity network" for the Toronto and York

hockey equipment was delivered to eagerly awaiting children. The detail that completed the experience? The Stanley Cup came too. Described as a ’historic first’ by Chief Bart Meekis, the Cup’s arrival in the remote community served as a reminder to local youth that opportunity exists for them, to "be all you can be." And certainly, receiving hockey pads, helmets, skates, sticks and jerseys helped fuel local hockey dreams. Something that may have seemed out of reach is now possible for these kids, thanks to the generosity of Toronto residents. It was also made possible by one Sandy Lake teacher who connected with Rotary to facilitate the donation. So we share this story to warm hearts. We share it to demonstrate how a small initiative can have a big, lasting impact in the lives of others. Those children will not forget the day the Stanley Cup arrived in their community, along with hockey equipment they couldn’t have afforded otherwise. These are the kinds of efforts we like to celebrate when they come across our news desks, because Toronto’s got more than its share of bad news. The good is also there, but sometimes it needs a little help getting up into the spotlight.

IMMIGRANTS LEARN THEIR RIGHTS

Stories of crime, tragedy and hate often dominate the headlines and while it’s our job to accurately report on these events, the effect of its continual presence on readers is not lost on us. That’s why this week we’re sharing a story across all our newspapers. Inspired by the efforts of residents in Etobicoke, it serves as a shining example of the good that exists in this world and how seemingly small, local initiatives can make the greatest difference in the lives of others living thousands of miles away. Those are the stories worth celebrating. Local hockey families donated gently used hockey gear to a collection by Rotary Clubs of Etobicoke and Palgrave, destined for First Nations youth in six northern Ontario reserves. Only in its second year, the drive netted 25 times more equipment than the first - a whopping 40,000 pounds of gear, thanks to the generosity of parents and kids here in Toronto. Our reporter Cynthia Reason covered those initial efforts and was extended a special invitation to see the story through to its conclusion. She traveled with Rotary representatives and Etobicoke-Lakeshore Councillor Mark Grimes to one of the reserves at Sandy Lake where 16 skids of

depend largely on Ontario’s promise to create 100,000 new child care spaces across the province over the next five years.

The community members around Vaughan Road Academy are calling it a victory for their neighbourhood, after trustees voted to keep the property for future and potentially community uses. "We’re overjoyed. It’s very sad the school is closing, but at least the community will have an opportunity to use the building as it should," said Lyba Spring, member of Oakwood-Vaughan Neighbourhood Action Partnership (OV NAP). Toronto District School Board trustees voted to keep the property at 529 Vaughan Rd. as a core holding at their Feb. 8 meeting. The school is closing this June. "I think it’s excellent," said Eglinton-Lawrence trustee Jennifer Arp, who represents the area. She said school board enrolment projects show the site will be needed in the future for a school. School board staff will determine the TDSB’s needs for the site. For example, it could move some offices into the property. Even if the board uses some of the space, Arp hopes there will be enough room for the community as well. "The community around Vaughan Road has mobilized and come up with a plan for using part of that space as a community hub," she said. One of those agencies, the Learning Enrichment Foundation (LEF), which operates the 41-space Vaughan Road Infant and

Toddler Centre in the school, hopes the board’s decision will allow it to expand it’s program. "There is room to expand. There are over 400

Two busloads of children from Thomas Fiddler Memorial Elementary School braved the -34C weather to greet the arrival of the Stanley Cup at Sandy Lake First Nation air field. The banner they’re holding, written in Oji-Cree, reads ‘Welcome to Sandy Lake. Thank you for bringing the Stanley Cup’.

Bringing the hockey dream to Sandy Lake Stanley Cup, mountains of hockey equipment delivered to remote First Nations reserve CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

‡SANDY ‡ LAKE

There was a buzz in the arctic air at Sandy Lake First Nation last Tuesday that not even the -34C polar chill could numb – word had it that Lord Stanley was about to land in town. On the local radio station, Chief Bart Meekis issued an urgent plea for all 3,500 residents Toronto of the remote northern Ontario reserve to “Let’s all get to the airport now and show our happiness!” At Thomas Fiddler Memorial Elementary School, students

put the last-minute touches on a colourful banner written in their native Oji-Cree, welcoming the Stanley Cup and its contingent of carriers from Etobicoke. And at the landing site itself, dozens of pick-up trucks and school buses packed with excited hockey fans of all ages ringed the airstrip in anxious anticipation of the Holy Grail of hockey’s arrival. “The gravity of it all didn’t really hit me until we were landing in Sandy Lake and I looked out the window and saw the whole community out there in the cold waiting for us,” said Etobicoke-Lakeshore Councillor Mark Grimes, who used his connections at the Hockey Hall of Fame to arrange the Cup’s visit to coincide with

the delivery of 5,500 pounds of Rotary-donated hockey equipment to Sandy Lake – even successfully outbidding Justin Trudeau for the honour. As the charter flight carrying Grimes, Rotary representatives, a documentary film crew from Etobicoke-based Fifth Ground Entertainment, and the official “Keeper of the Cup” Howie Borrow touched down, the subzero temperatures seemingly melted away on a wave of enthusiasm that drove a flood of excited bodies from the warmth of their vehicles and onto the airfield – Chief Meekis one of the first among them.

can’t afford the skates, which is sad because people here go hard for hockey – they absolutely love it,” said Jenn Elwell, the now “super famous” teacher who arranged the hockey donation with Rotary Etobicoke’s Laura Latham after stumbling upon a story about the club’s hockey drive on Facebook. “So for me, seeing my kids walk out of the gym today with skates in their hands and big smiles on their faces just melted my heart. It was so beautiful, because I know how much it means to them.” Pittsburgh Penguins superfan Derek Monias, 13, not only walked away from the distribution event at Thomas Fiddler Memorial Elementary School last week with a hockey bag stuffed with new gear, he was also able to cross a key item off his bucket list. “I’ve always wanted to see the Stanley Cup in person and now I have. It’s every hockey player’s dream to one day achieve winning it,” he said with a shy smile. “This day, we all feel happy. The people that brought the Cup here have put a smile on everybody’s faces here in Sandy Lake and made them feel good inside.”

@InsideTOnews

“To actually see it here in Sandy Lake, it brings so much hope and so much joy to my community. That the Stanley Cup would come to a remote place like this, it’s the first time I’ve ever heard of it,” Meekis said shortly after parading the Cup around Sandy Lake on the back of his pick-up truck, trailed by an escort of 16 flag-waving, skidoo-driving members of the Sandy Lake Canadian Rangers. While Lord Stanley’s 22-hour stay in Sandy Lake was widely celebrated as a “historic first”, Meekis pledged it most certainly won’t mark the Cup’s last long voyage to the remote fly-in community nearly 1,500 kms northwest of Toronto. “It will be back up here again in 2020, but next time it will be one of our young hockey players bringing it north as a Stanley Cup champion – hopefully with the Canadiens,” the Montreal fan said with a determined grin. “To us, the Stanley Cup promotes education, it promotes discipline, and it also promotes that you can be all you can be – and that’s s o m e -

thing our kids need to see.” While the Cup’s arrival provided plenty of incentive to young hockey players in Sandy Lake to strive for NHL greatness, the accompanying delivery of 16 skids of gently used hockey gear collected by the Rotary Clubs of Etobicoke and Palgrave – and shipped free-of-charge courtesy Wasaya Airways and the Grimes’ brothers Etobicoke-based logistics company, MGA International – brought with it the means with which to fulfill a hockey dream that, for many, would’ve otherwise been out of reach. Freight costs to communities like Sandy Lake, which are only accessible by land via ice roads for a few short weeks in the winter, drive the price of even the most basic of goods up at least threefold. In a community where even a 24-case of no-name bottled water sells for $27.79, that means the price of alreadycostly hockey equipment becomes prohibitively expensive for most families. “A lot of our youth want to get on the ice, but
