Architect aims to help preserve Cabbagetown JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com Though his name may be unknown to many living downtown, there’s no denying the impact Rollo Myers has had on Toronto’s built form. Myers has spent much of the last three decades working to preserve heritage sites and buildings in Cabbagetown, the St. Lawrence area and other portions in and around the city core. Born in Australia, he first came to Canada at the age of 15 when his father got a job teaching at the University of British Columbia in 1960. Though his

Years after enduring a sexual assault, downtown Toronto resident Tara Muldoon has finally reached a point where she can forgive her attacker. Her journey to that point has helped fuel a new book that looks at the notion of forgiveness as a whole. Muldoon has assembled first-person accounts from a variety of sources in the book, titled F-You: The Forgiveness Project. “The book itself focuses a

father returned home five years later, Myers and his brothers opted to remain on this side of the Pacific. “I was at university (studying architecture) and I had a lot of friends here,” he said. While living in B.C., Myers founded Topographics Ltd., a company that designed a way to turn maps into threedimensional renderings. He first came to Toronto in 1970 when the company moved its head office here. He settled in Cabbagetown with his wife, which helped steer his path as a protector of the city’s built history. >>>MYERS, page 10

Playwright Daniel MacIvor writes about Best Brothers New play runs Sept. 25 to Oct. 27 at Tarragon Theatre JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com Having already earned rave reviews in Stratford, Tarragon Theatre playwright-in-residence Daniel MacIvor’s latest work is set to make its Toronto debut. The play, titled The Best Brothers, looks at two very different brothers who come together following the bizarre death of their mother at the Pride Parade. In the play, MacIvor plays the responsible and straightlaced Hamilton Best while actor John Beale plays the free-spirited, gay younger brother, Kyle. “I think it’s theatrical and accessible all at the same time,” MacIvor said. “The story’s about families, siblings, the relationship

between mothers and sons, and dogs.” One of the comedy’s key plotlines revolves around the late mother’s dog. While only one of the brothers actually wants to adopt the pet, it was bequeathed to the other. That, coupled with family dynamics that are at once strange and familiar, offers the play a distinct heart. “I think it looks at subjects everyone can relate to unless you don’t have siblings, you have a horrible relationship with your mother and you hate dogs,” MacIvor said. MacIvor wrote the play specifically for himself and Beale after the playwright saw some of his co-star’s work and the pair met on several occasions. “He has the same kind of theatrical philosophy I do,”

John Beale, left, and Daniel MacIvor appear in ‘The Best Brothers’. The play opens at the Tarragon Theatre later this month.

MacIvor said. “He can be grounded and whimsical at the same time.” MacIvor has been a familiar face among theatre-goers for years, though he has also written and appeared in several films and on the shortlived, but beloved sitcom Twitch City.

Despite the greater exposure he can get from film and television roles, he much prefers the immediacy of the stage. “I feel like I have a house in theatre and I rent a room in film,” he said. “Theatre seems like architecture and film seems more

like real estate.” The theatre world has certainly treated him well. He won the award for overall excellence at the New York Fringe Festival for his play Never Swim Alone in 1998 and a GLAAD Award and a Village Voice Obie Award in 2002 for his play In On It. He also received the Siminovitch Prize in Theatre, which recognizes outstanding contributions by Canadians in the fields of design, directing and playwriting in 2008. MacIvor had planned on going into journalism, but fell in love with theatre while in university. “I just slipped and fell into the theatre program at Dalhousie and never looked back,” he said. “Once that happened, I never had a question whether this was what I wanted to do.” While most Canadian actors struggle to make a career for themselves, his aptitude for writing helped him along. When roles were

hard to come by, he said, he would simply write one for himself. MacIvor currently splits time between his home in the upper Annex near Wychwood Barns and Nova Scotia, though he considers himself a resident of Toronto. He loves the Wychwood Barns area, where he can often be seen walking his own dog. “In that area, I’m reminded of the best of the city,” he said. “It represents what the dream of Toronto once was, which the city has fallen from a bit. There’s been a gentle revitalization that’s sensitive to the original residents and the flavour of the neighbourhood.” The Best Brothers will run from Sept. 25 through Oct. 27 with previews starting Sept. 17.

Actor Tonya Williams in TIFF film, ReelWorld symposium JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com

B

etween an upcoming role in the TIFF film Empire of Dirt and the upcoming signature event for the ReelWorld Film Festival, veteran actor and ReelWorld founder Tonya Williams has plenty on her plate. Despite those opportunities, however, the Ryerson University graduate takes time to focus on other matters as well, choosing roles more carefully as she looks at the bigger picture. “In my 20s and 30s, my decisions were based on how to continue to move forward with my acting career,” she said. “Now, at 55, I’m looking more at my whole life and how it will look at 60, 65, 70, 75.” The actor, best known for her role as Dr. Olivia Barber Winters on The Young and the Restless, noted television has changed since she broke onto the scene in the 1970s. Rather than focusing on positive characters, she

noted, today’s shows and movies embrace darker sensibilities and focus more on anti-heroes. “A lot of the heroes on TV are villains but we’re supposed to like them,” she said. “You get serial killers, vampires eating people or decapitating people and we’re supposed to cheer for them.” morphed She acknowledges she was part of the show business machine that has morphed into today’s hyper-violent, ultrasexualized entertainment world and is choosing to disengage from most of what that world offers. “What hurts is to realize I was part of the problem when I step back now and see the tsunami it’s become,” she said. “I keep wanting to fight it, but I don’t have the energy to start my own television station and create all the shows.” Williams’ role in Empire of Dirt falls more in line

with her own sensibilities. The film, produced by Jennifer Podemski, follows three generations of Aboriginal women as they work to overcome various struggles. Williams plays a social worker who gets involved when the youngest of the three overdoses on drugs at the age of 13. “With Jennifer Podemski, you know the film’s going to have that heart,” she said. In addition to her acting work, Williams has spent the past 14 years starting up and running the ReelWorld Film Festival, which was designed to give opportunities to filmmakers of colour. ambitions changed She is now looking to find ways in which those filmmakers’ needs and ambitions have changed. As with the entertainment world in general, she hopes to see a return to less graphic fare. “It seems like there are two sides – the ones who

feel the government owes them money to make films and another train that’s hostile about government funding,” she said. “Neither side’s looking at the content of their films, though. It would be nice to see more stories revolving around families and real people.” The ReelWorld festival’s Indie Film Lounge, which offers professional development opportunities to young artists, will feature a two-day symposium on Monday, Sept. 9 and Tuesday, Sept. 10 and will feature a workshop with the makers of Empire of Dirt.

Empire of Dirt’s TIFF screenings take place at the Scotiabank Theatre at 9:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6 and at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8.

Wanted: a proper discussion on cycling

J

umping on your bicycle and hitting the streets of Toronto has become a complicated issue. It gets the backs up of both cyclists and motorists. Each side has complaints about the other: cyclists disobey the rules of the road; motorists don’t look out for cyclists. This kind of two-way antagonism helps no one, it only fuels fires that seem easily sparked. There has been much cycling talk lately. The city’s chief planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, teamed up with Cycle Toronto and took the cycling discussion on the road – on her bike. Using hydro corridors to allow for dedicated cycling, and of course dedicated bike lanes across the city all deserve listening to. On the heels of a study by University of Toronto PhD student Adrian Verster, who created a list of 50 dangerous intersections for cyclists in the city, a discussion on how to best implement cycling in Toronto is needed. And quickly. The supposed ‘war on the car our view / bicycle’ needs to stop. It serves no one. And with the city’s population growing quickly, cycling Integrated will become an ever-increasing mode of transportation for many plan for cycling a must people. Not surprisingly, the most dangerous intersections to cycle in the city are located in the old city of Toronto – on Bloor and Queen streets. However, there are dangerous intersections for cyclists across the city, including Willowdale and Empress avenues in North York (#23). If news reports prove anything, it is that there is always the chance you can get hurt – even killed – while riding your bike. It doesn’t matter where you ride your bike. Ontario Minister of Transportation Glen Murray announced on Friday the province’s 20-year vision for cycling, with the goal to make Ontario the number one province for cycling in Canada. This ambitious goal will need funding, dedication, and a clear vision tailored to each city across Ontario. A cookie-cutter approach will not work. The entirety of Toronto City Council is not expected to meet until October, but they are all back to work after Labour Day, including local community council meetings set for Sept. 10. Torontonians should not shy away from pushing for a proper, integrated cycling plan for the city. It’s been long discussed, much maligned, and often ignored. Councillors in the downtown core raise the issue often, but this should not be another downtown versus suburbs discussion.

Thanks to a fine balance, Toronto ranks high

F

or all of those who refuse to believe the worst about Toronto, our ranking as one of the best places in which to live among 140 cities worldwide must be reassuring. All of the top five cities – Melbourne, Vienna, Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary – share similarities: they are mid-sized, and all have medium-level densities. The criteria by which they were rated include political stability, health care, culture, the environment, education, and infrastructure. When the list is extended to the top 10, and so takes in cities from Finland and New Zealand, additional similarities can be found, such as all being part of economies that value both private and public investment. Equally remarkable is that the most famous cities are missing from the top. For instance those cities with cachet or buzz, such as Paris, London or New

david soknacki beyond the headlines York, are well down. So are others that excel in just a couple of criteria at the expense of others. Hong Kong comes to mind: it has enviable economic growth and superior hard infrastructure, but extremely high densities, many inadequate services, and a murky political environment. Many Torontonians, who think their hometown is full of shortcomings, have much to learn. Perhaps the first lesson ought to be in self-esteem. We are near the top of the list not because we do one thing perfectly, but because we are able to achieve a balance so well. While we might moan about gridlock, we are investing in both transit expansion and major road repair. Privately and publicly we give to culture and

support environmental initiatives yet we have embraced frugality as a culture at City Hall. The same balance is evident when looking at development. Much of urban planning thinking centres around using public resources efficiently, which leads to intensification. Yet pushed to extremes, overdevelopment creates its own problems, which are hugely expensive to fix and sometimes takes decades. Set against these forces of capitalism and orthodoxy is a jumble of municipal regulation and a provincial tribunal, which often produces a sensible balance between density and preservation. None of Toronto’s strengths would be sustainable without a strong local economy. Here we have achieved success as well. Our most recent employment figures are up, as are retail sales. In addition, our low office and

industrial vacancy rates are a sure a sign of healthy investment. Like our other successes, Toronto’s economic strength is not due to any one sector. We have successfully although painfully changed from competing as a low-cost manufacturer into being a centre for value-added services across a range of industries such as finance, aerospace, education and health care. In short, we have achieved a quality of living that is the envy of the world by moving with the times and achieving a balance in so many areas of our urban life. For the future our goal must not to worry about being the biggest, the flashiest, or excelling in one virtue at the expense of others, but rather to continue the balancing that we do so well.

Book stemmed from series of workshops for survivors in Toronto in 2010 >>>from page 1 think ‘if I can’t save myself from that, how can I control my own life?’” No one could blame Muldoon for holding on to her anger, but the fact she could not forgive her attacker despite being raised in a family that believes strongly in the power of forgiveness added to her negative feelings. Eventually, she landed on the idea of F-You as a way to look at forgiveness and help her – and others

– through the healing process. The book stemmed from a series of workshops she held across Toronto beginning in 2010, in which guest speakers spoke of going from being victims to being survivors. The book takes things a step further, with stories from perpetrators of violence in addition to those hurt by it. “I went as far as talking to some gang members, people who did time for things like attempted murder,” Muldoon said.

When Muldoon decided to turn the F-You concept into a book, she was overwhelmed by the response. She put out a call for submissions and the stories began flooding in.

The F-You project has earned a strong following, with Governor General Michaelle Jean and acclaimed rapper Kardinal Offishal among those who have lauded it. The project has also received financial support from the City of Toronto. “The city gave funding to a proj-

Myers helped save site of first Parliament

O C C U PA N C Y S P R I N G 2 0 1 4

Welcome to the Towns on Rumsey! Why redefined? This limited collection of luxury townhomes is anything but ordinary. Located in the distinguished neighbourhood of South Leaside, these townhomes are designed to match the subtle elegance of the area, but from there everything changes. Unlike any other low-rise project in the area, these extra-wide townhomes

>>>from page 1 “I had no interest in heritage at all, but moving into Cabbagetown changed all that around,” he said. “People 120 years ago were pretty smart – they didn’t have endless supplies of gasoline or electricity so they made do with what they had. You could walk to school, walk to the store, walk to church. I think that’s the way we’ll design cities in the future.” Myers played an instrumental role in a 15-year battle to recognize the site of Ontario’s first dedicated parliament buildings at the corner on Front and Berkeley streets. Until he noticed it on a map while working with the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario, the site’s history had been sadly neglected. “Right on the map, it showed Upper Canada’s first parliament building and when you see it today, it’s almost embarrassing that it was just treated as a piece of land,” he said. “The Americans burnt it down in 1813 which triggered the whole raid on Washington and the White House.”

Photo/COURTESY

Heritage advocate Rollo Myers has helped preserve Toronto’s history in the downtown district.

The site had been used as a car wash until Myers and the City of Toronto worked to arrange a land swap with the property owners. The site is now designated under Ontario’s Heritage Act and a planned test dig could help uncover the old building’s bones. “There are 87 national historic sites in Toronto and this was not one of them?”

Myers said. Myers has also worked t o p re s e r v e h o u s e s i n Cabbagetown and worked to get the neighbourhood recognized as a series of Heritage Conservation Districts, used his 3-D modelling techniques to preserve views near Fort York, which led to the scrapping and redesigning of development plans and the foundation of the Friends of Fort York. He is one of the leading lights when it comes to the history of downtown Toronto. “The big question is, how can you get developers to come into a heritage area and develop it right?” he said, alluding to the pressure for new development in the downtown core. “Can’t you have both – keep examples of the old and add some new?” Myers will be recognized with the Heritage Toronto Awards Special Achievement Award on Oct. 15.

NOISE WALL DESIGNS – HAVE YOUR SAY! GO Transit would like your input on the design of the Georgetown South (GTS) Project noise walls being built in your neighbourhood. Be a part of shaping one of the major projects of Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan, The Big Move. Since 2011, we have been consulting with the communities along the corridor about our noise mitigation plan. Last year we began recruiting members from eight segments of the corridor to be a part of Community Advisory Committees (CAC). These committees have brought together residents, business owners, community associations and elected representatives to discuss how the wall designs can be integrated into the existing neighbourhood landscape. Since April 2013, we have held over 24 meetings with CAC members along the GTS corridor. Design concepts have been developed based on ideas and concerns brought forward by the CAC members.

Michael Gfroerer 647. 701.3919 michaelgfroerer@gmail.com

In September, we will be hosting four public meetings for you and your neighbours to tell us what you think about the design concepts. The meetings will take place in four different neighbourhoods representing the eight CACs along the GTS corridor. Please join us and have your voice heard. At each meeting there will be a presentation beginning at 6:30 p.m. to present the noise wall design concepts specific to the areas listed below. You will also have the opportunity to view the designs for the entire GTS Project corridor. Come join us, take a look and tell us what you think!

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently launched an awareness campaign on GO Transit trains. The Veggie Revolution is an initiative from the provocative organization’s youth wing peta2, which posts there would be enough food in the world to end starvation – if everyone switched to a vegan diet.

One hundred and fortysix ads depicting an impoverished young girl with the tagline “When You Eat Meat, She Doesn’t Eat” were posted on GO train cars at the end of August. car-sharing parking spots open wMore

New on-street parking spaces were made available to car-share users this week. Around 26 additional spots are now open in nine locations around the downtown core and East York, which expands a pilot project launched in 2009 by the city to encourage carsharing. There are three carshare providers serving the city: Car2Go, Zipcar and Autoshare. An estimated 40,000 Torontonians make regular use of car-shares. Toronto will also host the 2013 CarSharing Association conference Sept. 16 to 17.

RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com A graduate student’s analysis of 24 years of bike collision data suggests cyclists are more at risk on streets without bike lanes. Adrian Verster’s study examines 31,000 accidents involving cyclists taken from the city’s Toronto Traffic Safety Unit’s (TTSU) reporting between 1986 and 2010. As the incidents were GPS tagged, he was able to pinpoint which streets the accidents were taking place in order to come up with a list of the 50 most dangerous intersections in the city to cycle. Several of the Top 10 are in The Mirror’s coverage area: • Bathurst St. & Davenport Rd.; Avenue Rd. & Lonsdale Rd.; Bloor St. W. & St. Thomas St.; Bloor St. E. & Castle Frank Rd.; Bloor St. E. & Parliament St. He examined collision statistics released annually by the TTSU based primarily on data taken from police

reports detailing the nature of cycling accidents, where it took place, who was at fault and other factors. As an avid cyclist with an interest in statistical analysis, Verster had downloaded the publicly available data on cycling collisions, which he planned to examine in detail in between completing his PhD in genomics at the University of Toronto. But what really motivated him to complete the study was the serious accident his girlfriend Kate had while riding her bike a month ago near Avenue and Davenport Roads, fourth on his list of dangerous intersections. At first, Verster found the busiest intersections, like those along Yonge Street, had the largest number of collisions. That came as no surprise given the high volumes of traffic. But when he “normalized the data” by taking into account existing traffic volume at intersections and the surrounding area, he began to see patterns

emerge along two prominent streets. “Bloor Street and Queen Street began to show up a lot and the similarity is they don’t have bike lanes,” said Verster this week. “They’re used a lot for commuting and I’m almost certain that’s why they showed up in the analysis.” He also noticed how intersections which “twist and turn” were more likely than straight roads to have more collisions, such as at Broadview Avenue and Gerrard Street. He also found accidents were more like to take place during the evening rush hour commute. City spokesperson Daniel Egan said some of Verster’s findings were in line with previous analysis. Still, Egan warned against making conclusions based on decades-old data.
