THE PURVEYOR Michael Pourvakil, President

Our designers and artisans masterfully incorporate modern tastes with traditional weaving techniques. As an expression of that philosophy, we are pleased to introduce two new additions to our Signature collection of premium hand-knotted area rugs: Koh-I-Noor represents the astonishing cut of one of the world’s largest diamond. Lake Ripples was inspired by the chain reaction of different waves moving at different speed. Both are expertly handcrafted in Tibetan wool and natural silk fibres, which is eco-friendly, soft, and lustrous.

FALL 2020

PRES I DE N T ' S L E T T E R Welcome to the Fall edition of The Collection. I hope you had a happy, healthy, and safe summer season. Obviously, this was a summer like no other and the same can be said for the coming season and beyond. It was quite surprising to see the resurgence of the real estate market these past few months. The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) recently released the sales figures for September, and over 11,000 homes were sold on the MLS, making it the busiest September on record. In fact, this was the third record-setting month in a row. Despite so few homes selling in April and May, we are now ahead of 2019’s sales at the same time last year. Certainly, low interest rates and a recovering economy have a lot to do with it. And, no doubt, desire for space and sanctuary has driven activity in the suburbs and cottage areas. But I believe that there’s a broader narrative at play, and that is the market’s confidence in real estate as a store of value. We saw in early spring the

wild fluctuations of the stock market, and though it’s bounced back, there remains volatility. By comparison, when the buyers hit the brakes in March, we never saw a collapse in pricing. In fact, prices held firm right until June and have been on an upward trajectory ever since. Turning to our latest issue, there’s a lot to explore. It’s Thanksgiving and despite the global challenges, there remains much to be thankful for. To help you with some ideas for an in-home celebration, John Horne from Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality is here with some great suggestions. We’re also joined by Geoff Cape from Evergreen and Future Cities Canada. This month, he and his team will be launching the #UnexpectedSolutions summit, a must-see online event for anyone interested in city building. We hope you enjoy the latest issue. We wish you and your family a happy and healthy fall season, and we look forward to seeing you again in December.

Livable, Ad ap table, Atta in able Modern design for a modern lifestyle By Renato Iamonaco & Shirin Nezhat Graziani Corazza Biase

Limerick Point is an exclusive community of contemporary, detached homes bordering the landmark green space of the Oak Ridges Moraine in north Richmond Hill. When our firm was contracted to provide designs for the interiors, the builder’s high standards presented a fresh approach to residential home creation: to build with integrity and to respect the needs of the homeowner, not just for today but for the future. Traditionally, interior design and architecture have been about an expression of beauty or an idea of how we want the world to see us. But at its core, true design should really facilitate an opportunity for individuals and their families to grow in a space, almost effortlessly.

The unique draw to Limerick Point was its holistic design philosophy, an approach rarely seen in subdivisions. The builder’s team encouraged a multidimensional relationship to the home, where careful introspection, daily routines, and the adaptability of the design were paramount. When designing the interiors, we aimed to create a space that would feel comfortable for its residents and allow the functionality of each room to exist organically. While surveying the exteriors for The Winslow model — with its wide lot, elevation setbacks, and materials of linear stone, modern brick masonry and wood — we knew that the design language from the exterior would provide the canvas we needed for the interior core. The community’s breathtaking natural surroundings provided a starting point for the interior palette. Natural oak wood connected to the lush greenery, transparent and smoked glass spoke to reflections in water, textured terrazzo hinted at rock formations. We balanced these strong textures with delicate marbles to emulate the earth’s quarries. We felt that the natural oak floors would allow any style furnishings or accents to flow seamlessly throughout the home, regardless of whether the homeowners’ style was traditional, modern or contemporary. The kitchen is the heart of the home and serves as a statement piece, anchoring the flow between each space. These homes demanded a kitchen that balances function, design, practicality and comfort. We focused on providing ample counter space, storage, and eye candy using Venetian Blue marble, natural oak, and dark grey and bronze accents. In recent years, development trends have leaned towards homes that are narrower, forcing rooms into spaces that are not suitable for their function. The industry has focused on leveraging square footage as much as possible — we give more space to the kitchen but lose out on space in the living or dining room, or ensure an impressive primary bedroom, while the closet design suffers. As seen in The Winslow, wider lots offer more flexibility in the design, providing freedom to FALL 2020 | 9

Detailed appointments like the oversized 5' wide by 9' high glass pivot door entryways were implemented, not only for visual impact but to recognize the importance of natural light in the main upper hallway. Then, the entry partially reveals the room. A sizable console and mirror greets you, and a large king-size bed is centralized with a Europeaninspired wardrobe closet covered in smoked glass, which elevates the space. explore each room carefully, while still respecting the core values the home provides. Our design firm has great resources for products not commonly provided in subdivision homes. The client recognized this advantage and allowed us to include elements that were readily attainable for the purchaser. Throughout the home, there exist subtle but effective elements. The entry doors to each room are white oak and framed, allowing continuity with the floors, while the striking, black hardware is carried forward in the bathroom accessories. Ample amenities are enhanced by optional builtin closets that maximize efficiency. The bathrooms have impressive attention to detail, and the laundry room, with its distinctive and playful tiled floor, 10 | the COLLECTION

Every aspect of the house was considered, from the floor plan and bespoke cabinetry design, through to the furniture and art curation. The result?

BATA SHOE MUSEUM TURNS 25 By Jordan Z. Adler

In 1995, the idea of a museum devoted to shoes may have seemed like a curio...a space more suited to shoppers wandering in from Bloor Street than culture and history buffs. However, 25 years later, the Bata Shoe Museum remains in step with many of the city’s premiere art institutions.

“People might imagine that it’s a niche museum because it’s focused on footwear,” says Elizabeth Semmelhack, the museum’s creative director and senior curator. But there’s no end to using shoes as an entry point into larger cultural questions.” Having put its best foot forward, it remains North America’s lone shoespecialized museum. In May 2020, the Bata Shoe Museum marked 25 years serving Toronto’s well-heeled patrons. The anniversary was mostly quiet, with the museum’s doors shut due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the milestone was without the museum’s founder and namesake, Sonja Bata, who died in February 2018. For decades, Sonja was one of the world’s foremost shoe collectors. Before age 20, she married Thomas Bata, the heir of a world-famous shoe manufacturer and retailer. Alongside her partner in life and business, she treasured the opportunity to acquire rare and unusual shoes during her travels with Bata Shoes. Much of Sonja’s collection, amassed over several decades, is now either on display or kept in storage at the museum that brandishes the Bata name. Shoes delighted and entranced Sonja, but it was the life around the objects — the cultures that produced and wore them, the imperfections and touches each pair contains — that most fascinated her. It was that attention to detail that made an imprint on the senior curator. “It is amazing to be a part of a museum that had a collector so open to a wide range of objects,” Semmelhack says.

18TH CENTURY INDIAN-ENGLISH

“She was very good at focusing in on stitches and the way the sole had been put onto the shoe. She taught me how to see very closely when looking at shoes, to assess how they had been worn, how they’d been repaired, where were they possibly manufactured. I became better at seeing them, too.” Part of Sonja’s urge to collect was to help the company’s designers learn traditional techniques for making shoes; they could use models from a variety of styles and cultures. Sonja was also interested in research, hoping to excavate histories of Indigenous peoples – from North America, Europe, and Asia – to discover more about their processes of shoemaking. She was still acquiring footwear in the months leading up to her death at age 91. The last procured pair were heeled women’s shoes, made with green and red fabric, dating back to the 18th century. Several of the nearly 15,000 objects in the museum come from Sonja’s sprawling collection. Among the prized shoes on display are those worn by celebrities: Terry Fox’s Adidas runners, Elton John’s glittery platform boots, and Queen Victoria’s silk satin slippers. Other artifacts include a pair of wooden sandals from ancient Egypt, which are also the museum’s oldest possession. A regal, red velvet chopine — the dazzling platform shoe from the Italian Renaissance period — is another striking piece. It is those high-heeled objects that have continued to fascinate Semmelhack. When she joined as a curator in 2000, her first exhibition was about the history of the high heel. Questions surrounding those shoes, such as their modern appeal for women after centuries of being worn by men, continue to intrigue her. FALL 2020 | 15


“I’ve been working on the history of the high heel since the day I got hired,” says Semmelhack, who has traced the shoes’ roots back to 10th-century Persia. “I was getting a little frustrated with the ‘shoe-aholic’ discussions, these ideas that women couldn’t control themselves around shoe buying. Then I thought, how interesting that the same conversation isn’t being held around sneaker collecting.”

sonja bata, 2015 | photo by michal sváček

These discussions about shoes and gender are rare among historians, as shoes have elided the kind of serious academic research that greets other museum-ready artifacts. Since opening in 1995, the space keeps expanding its permanent collection, acquiring shoes through auction, personal donations, or even those who walk in off the street. Among the biggest finds are items belonging to ordinary Canadians, like boots or sandals hanging around an attic. Semmelhack says that when she was installing her first exhibition, a person approached the front desk with an item they wanted her to see. “They had a pair of World War II shoes in high fashion, made out of non-rationed materials. They’d been purchased by an American soldier for his Canadian girlfriend to give her a little bit of Parisian fashion. They told this really interesting story.” Aside from the entrances to history these shoes provide, the museum remains a place where massproduced objects share shelf space with one-of-akind creations. One of the museum’s most attended exhibitions (from 2013) was about sneaker culture. It attracted a demographic too seldom seen in the museum — young men — and its popularity led to a tour in the United States and Australia. Sneakers proved to be a big draw again in summer 2019, when several Toronto Raptors players donated to the museum the shoes they had worn during the NBA playoffs. After the exclusive summer exhibition, the champions’ footwear was auctioned off. These showcases reveal the curator’s drive to find a greater diversity of men’s shoes. Nevertheless, the

museum’s archives, which span more than 4,000 years, are continually expanding to suit the times. “There is something about seeing footwear from the past, and knowing that they had been embodied,” Semmelhack says. “It’s a very visceral and I think poignant way of collapsing distance and history, between us and the past.”

While the museum re-opened in July (in a modified, health-conscious state), it strives to remain resonant. When protests against police brutality in the United States and Canada seized the cultural zeitgeist, curators were left to grapple with how to address inequity in spaces that privilege certain objects and experiences.

classes. Hopefully we can also push the envelope and broaden what it is we collect and the stories that we can tell through footwear.”

With footwear being significant articles for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of colour) communities, the museum is well-suited to use shoes as cultural symbols. A place with an idiosyncratic approach to history — viewing it, literally, at ground level — has the potential to add to conversations about racism and inequality, according to Semmelhack. “What does historically get preserved…tends to reflect only a very small part of the story of who wore them, [a small part of] humanity,” she says. “We tend to save the objects of the upper 18 | the COLLECTION

These wearable objects are not just wonders of artistry and craftsmanship, they are objects tied specifically to world history, as well as social and technological change. “I still have more questions than ever about what shoes can tell us,” Semmelhack says. The Bata Shoe Museum kicked off its 25th anniversary in August with The Great Divide: Footwear in the Age of Enlightenment. Featuring 18th century artifacts from the permanent collection, the exhibition highlights complex stories about privilege, oppression, danger, desire, revolution and resistance that are as relevant today as they were 300 years ago. www.batashoemuseum.ca images © 2020 bata shoe museum, toronto, canada

coming up green Health & Wellness in the Kitchen

By Luxury Portfolio International

Rather than being instantly propagated by viral memes, most trends gain momentum slowly, sometimes taking years to gain widespread adoption. For kitchens and residences, the first signs of change often surface in concept homes, which serve as indicators to what lies ahead in the home, design, and shelter space. These days, it’s about green, and how individuals are incorporating these features into their homes. One concept house, showcased at the most recent Design and Construction Week in the U.S., featured a butler’s pantry/back kitchen that included an appliance designed to grow herbs and microgreens indoors. Another included a green wall adjacent to the kitchen to enhance air quality and provide a space to grow fresh food. Expect to see this trend of grow walls make its way from concept homes to high-end kitchens in the near future.

26 | the COLLECTION


THE NEW FARM TO TABLE Today, health and wellness within the kitchen extend beyond simply buying items that are unprocessed. It incorporates preparation, storage and even in-home food production, all of which gives new meaning to the term “farm to table.” A growing interest in organic, fresh and responsibly produced food is expected to create more change in the kitchen. It’s easy to see indications in the marketplace already. Along with the Urban Cultivator (the under-counter appliance that can grow herbs, microgreens, vegetables, and flowers), the New American Remodeled Home, showcased at the National Association of Home Builders’ last trade show, even featured gardens with fruit trees surrounding the perimeter and an artfully designed chicken coop.

exhibitors also edged into the food production arena. In a forward-looking exhibit focused on the kitchen of the future, Electrolux featured Air Garden, a ventilation fan that incorporated space to grow herbs. Other exhibits showcased options for open shelving or floating shelves configured for plants. “We all know that plants contribute highly to our wellbeing,” says Stephanie Pierce, Director of Design and Trends at MasterBrand Cabinets. She sees the desire to include kitchen gardens and to grow food at home as an important microtrend, but one not driving the mass market. Consumers are still reticent about the practicality of growing food at home, even though green walls and biophilic design garner quite a bit of interest. “I think it’s a micro-trend, meaning it’s well-known and not something that you have to look very hard to find. But I don’t think it’s widely utilized because there is some reservation from a lot of people about whether they have the capability to grow things,” explains Pierce. The Urban Cultivator, which was piloted as a commercial appliance, attempts to bypass these reservations with automatic cycles for watering and grow lights — both integrated into the appliance.

FROM CONCEPT TO KITCHEN Greenery was also very much in evidence at last year’s EuroCucina, a biannual kitchen trade show in Milan. In part, this is a nod to biophilia, the integration of nature into interiors and designs, but several

Also emerging is the notion of the wellness kitchen, but a green kitchen is only part of the broader vision. “If you want to talk about total design in the kitchen, you should pay attention to a lot of things including social aspects, as well as acoustics, light, water, air quality and other factors,” says Peterson.

New Beginnings Selling the Matrimonial Home in a Divorce By Daniella Gold, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Some of the biggest questions that arise during a separation or divorce have to do with the matrimonial home: What’s my home worth? Will I need to sell? What if I want to buy my spouse out? What if they want to buy me out and I refuse? If you’re grappling with similar questions, read on. Of course, this article is not to be construed as independent legal advice. Every situation is different, but we hope that this will help improve your familiarity with some important concepts. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE VALUE OF A MATRIMONIAL HOME? It is very important to determine the value of a matrimonial home in the context of a marriage breakdown. The home is often one of the most valuable assets, if not the most valuable asset that people own. Both spouses deserve to be compensated fairly for the value of this asset in the context of the overall settlement. If the home is jointly owned and will be sold as part of the separation process, the value will be straightforward: it’s simply going to be the price the buyer pays. Often, the parties will simply agree to divide the sale proceeds equally, after adjusting for the remainder of the agreed upon property settlement. WHAT IS AN APPRAISAL? An assessment of the value of the home – also known as the “market value.” Market value, in 30 | the COLLECTION

short, is the highest estimated monetary value a property will bring if listed for sale on the open market. The value can be expressed as one number or as a range. WHO CAN DO AN APPRAISAL FOR YOU? Previously, only a certified appraiser’s report was acceptable to lawyers, mediators and judges. These days, however, licensed real estate agents can also provide appraisals. Many separating spouses are choosing to retain a real estate agent, or agents, jointly, to provide the appraisal, since real estate agents are the professionals most familiar with area properties and current market forces. WHAT IF I WANT TO BUY MY SPOUSE OUT? Many people sell their homes when they get divorced. When the decision is made not to sell, however, it’s crucial to take all possible steps to get the value right. These situations include but are not limited to: • One spouse wanting to purchase the other spouse’s share of the home (i.e. exchange money for a title transfer) as part of the final settlement;


in a divorce situation, it is even more so. Having an experienced, neutral, full-time real estate professional on your side will make the listing and sale process a smooth one. • One spouse keeps the city home while the other spouse keeps a recreational property, while compensating for the difference in value by trading off other assets; • One spouse agrees to defer a buyout payment, essentially keeping their equity tied up in the house while the other spouse remains in the house with the children until the youngest finishes high school; • One spouse agrees to trade off lump sum spousal support for the other spouse’s half of the equity in the house, after adjusting for other entitlements. SELLING THE MATRIMONIAL HOME In the event that the home is to be sold, the couple must decide whether they are willing to work with one agent to represent them both in the sale. If the couple cannot agree on one agent, they can each select their own and have the agents co-list the property. It is imperative that all parties involved in the sale of the matrimonial home understand that the agent(s) represent both sellers and must act in the best interest of both. CHOOSING THE RIGHT AGENT Selecting the right agent is always very important, no matter the scenario, but

Decisions will need to be made by all parties involved in the listing, including: • Which brokerage will be the primary listing brokerage? • What price will the home be listed at? • Who will prepare the home for sale? • What listing strategy will obtain the best results for the sellers? • When will showings take place? Who will be notified and how will they be notified? Who will confirm the appointments? • What is the ideal closing date? • What is the best method of communication for all parties? Ultimately, the hope is that you will be able to move on with your life and begin a new chapter. The best way to do this is to minimize conflict along the way. Working together to sell your biggest asset will benefit both parties. Daniella Gold is a principal with the RDK Divorce Group.

UNEXPECTED SOLUTIONS I N C O N V E R S AT I O N W I T H G E O F F C A P E BY JEREMY FINKELSTEIN As founder and CEO of Evergreen, Geoff Cape has spent his career helping cities flourish. Although 2020 will be remembered for the Covid-19 pandemic, it also marks the 10th anniversary of the highly successful Evergreen Brick Works, with over 500,000 visitors annually. More recently, he and the Evergreen team helped found Future Cities Canada, a cross-sector collaborative designed to address inequality and climate change, along with the consequential challenges that accompany these issues. This fall, they are launching #UnexpectedSolutions, a free online summit showcasing a wide range of innovations designed to create cities where everyone will thrive. In anticipation of the event, Geoff Cape joined us for a chat about resiliency, real estate and the benefits of collaboration.

The Collection: What makes a resilient city? Geoff Cape: It's the ability to bounce back from adverse conditions, adverse circumstances. And to come back with the capacity to respond to new challenges, not just to where you were before, but to bounce back to a better spot. TC: What has Covid-19 taught us about urban planning? GC: That change can be made quickly. That there are a lot of necessary innovations that have been sitting in the background and now they're starting to move…and that's a good thing. It's taught us that we need cities. As much as there's some suggestion that the urban idea is gone, and we’re heading back to

the suburbs and the rural, I think quite the contrary. People are realizing, especially as we head into the fall, that we are a highly social animal and we need people and we need cities. TC: Does Toronto have the right infrastructure to meet the needs of this changing environment? GC: No…no city in the world does. Everyone's been caught off guard. Our infrastructure tends to be a little too stiff…inflexible, purpose-built. There's a very narrow set of outcomes available to something like a subway system, which has presented low success during this pandemic. The assets, the infrastructure that are really shining through are those pieces that can shift and be different under different circumstances. FALL 2020 | 35


TC: What are some examples? GC: A park landscape may, on some levels, be simply a place to walk your dog or sit in on a sunny afternoon. But more importantly, they’ve become multi-purpose spaces for everything like farmers’ markets, where there's a local commerce function playing out, to a place where people can connect in ways that they can't in their own homes. Streets are emerging with greater flexibility than they were as simply a twoor four-lane road, which seemed strictly a place for cars. Streets are unique assets because they can be converted from a space for cars into a space for restaurants. Streets are also being closed down as pedestrian avenues on weekends…it's transformed the way people experience a city. The car is such a dominant asset class, and the idea that cars and streets are together all the time has been broken. TC: Why did the Sidewalk Labs project fail? GC: At the end of the day, it was one simple issue, and that was the theme of trust. Every project runs at the speed of trust. Every real estate project, every project that interfaces with the public…and Sidewalk

Labs, with Google behind them, and a broader anxiety about tech firms like Cambridge Analytica and Facebook…all those big, anxiety-producing data platforms were hitting the news. Data and platform companies were called into question, and Sidewalk Labs got swept up into that question of trust. TC: Housing prices have skyrocketed. Are there local solutions to ensure fewer barriers to entry, or do people just need to move further distances? GC: There's so much opportunity in Toronto. Moving away from the city might be the right solution for some, for all sorts of good reasons…they may not need an office, they may not need the density of a city to feed them. But, for the vast majority of people, we need cities, so affordable housing is required. The go-to strategy for the last number of years has been high rise development…and it’s all about ownership. But I think affordable rental is an important area for development. Evergreen has pushed a lot of policy and strategy work around laneway housing, recognizing that there are 2500 laneways in Toronto, previously only approved for a kind-of tin shack garage at the back. The opportunity for one and two-

storey live-work spaces is a no-brainer. The City’s on that now, and I think the community will begin to recognize that’s what they should do if they've got a laneway. Small, low-impact housing solutions, small micro-residential housing programs [are needed]. There's an organization called R-Hauz innovating in this space in really interesting ways, developing their first project on Queen. It’s a six-storey, wood frame development that would otherwise be a two-storey Queen Street lot. Mid-rise and low-rise solutions are available in a big way. TC: What should real estate professionals be thinking about as they evaluate new projects? GC: The 50-year horizon. Most infrastructure has roughly a 50-year horizon. So, as you build, think about what’s coming down the pipe that's going to require a building to perform differently. Climate change is one. So, think about energy conservation, water conservation, mobility relationships for the live-work, coming-and-goings of the people who live inside. Think about materials. Panilization, which is a more efficient construction methodology, is becoming a theme for a lot of builders. Real estate developers should be trying to innovate in that

space...modular construction solutions. And, at the other end of the spectrum, is innovations around partnerships. There's a lot to be gained in the coming years, as we become denser, where partnerships in the city are necessary. It might be with a landowner, it might be a partnership with the adjacent community assets, whether that be a school or rec centre. It's the notion of a community hub, where multiple activities can emerge and play out, and they're highly flexible. If developers can find a way to weave those things together better, they’ll have a more resilient program. TC: And with more voices at the table. GC: That comes back to Sidewalk Labs…projects moving at the speed of trust. If developers can find a way to create partnerships early on, they build trust, they build momentum at the local level, and they turn an adversary into an advocate. TC: What can we expect from the upcoming #UnexpectedSolutions? GC: We have about 80 panels organized. Some incredible content looking into lessons learned FALL 2020 | 37

from Sidewalk Labs; looking into affordable housing solutions; looking at financing models; looking at platforms to build consensus in the community; technology platforms. There’s an amazing array of panelists and speakers from around the world in a full-blown video conference program. Normally, we would do these events at the Brickworks. It's a situation where we're flexing to the requirements of the time and doing it online. I think you'll find almost anything, whether you’re a student of city building or a seasoned, long-standing leader in that realm. TC: As someone who has successfully created one of Toronto’s great destinations, what did that teach you about city building? GC: Success revolved around our ability to engage with three levels of government in a comprehensive way, [and with] lots of private-sector partners and academics. We've also been able to bring in citizens in a robust way, whether in the farmers’ markets or the kids’ camps. So, there’s something profoundly relevant in the mash-up. Much of our city and much 38 | the COLLECTION

of our lives, quite frankly, is organized around single purpose channels, single-purpose mechanics. The big idea that we had for the Brickworks was to create something that would be flexible and fluid to meet different needs. And, we couldn't forecast...we were building the buildings with a design direction and, six months in, we thought we needed to do something on site because approvals could take years. So, we launched the farmers’ market. It wasn't in our plan, but it was a huge success. So, we went back to our design team and said, “We haven’t got any concepts that relate to farmers markets or spaces like that. Design in those flexible spaces.” So, collaboration and multi-functional space has been its success, and a lot of that is transferable. I look at the Honest Ed's site. They intentionally designed some almost ambiguous spaces to support convening and gathering without a clear view of the program yet…and that's a good thing. #UnexpectedSolutions begins October 20.

Culture Days offers a coast to coast cultural experience By Louise Nunn

We’ve entered a new phase in the country’s Covid recovery, and after months of being cooped up, you may be hungry for a little arts and entertainment. So, if you’re open to anything from driveway steamrollers that paint, to pedestrians conducting the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, look no further than Canada’s annual Culture Days Festival. From September 25 th through October 25 th, Canada’s largest arts and culture event will take place on screens and in-person from coast to coast. As always, the many colourful and free events that make up Culture Days are there for one simple reason: to get every Canadian engaging with their creative side. All you have to do is show up – literally or virtually, depending on your comfort level. Aubrey Reeves, Executive Director, explains. “Not everyone wants to be an artist, but everyone is creative and can benefit by making creativity a part of their lives.” Every year, Culture Days looks for bigger and better ways to enlist the public, artist or not, to be a part of the festival taking place in their region. This year’s event will look different in many ways, but celebrating art in the midst of the pandemic is as important as ever. 42 | the COLLECTION

Culture Days began in 2010 as an initiative of the Canadian Arts Summit. Inspired by Les Journées de la Culture, a province-wide event in Quebec, an Ontario-based team ran a pilot event to see how non-Quebecers would receive the celebration. “There wasn’t anything like it. It was a very different initiative to get off the ground,” Reeves says. Culture Days met with huge success, and over the years, the festival has grown. In Ontario alone, the number of activities jumped from 900 during the first event to 1700 a year ago. Today, it sponsors activities in every province and territory, except Quebec, but runs in tandem with Les Journées de la Culture. The key to Culture Days is found in the variety…no two installments are the same. “It is very adaptive,” Reeves explains, “We find that a lot of rural communities highlight agricultural-based activities, and other [communities] are more nature and outdoors oriented.” This year’s theme is Unexpected Intersections. Reeves says that the theme will build off of last year’s Creativity & Well-Being, where there were interactions between art and the health sector. “We were trying to get people thinking in new ways about collaboration.”

This year, the Royal Conservatory of Music will work with three different groups to mount three distinct concerts. For the first, they will team up with the Ladom Ensemble, the second with musician Fern Lindzon, and for the finale, they will collaborate with The Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists. In the digital sphere, people will be able to tune into a new podcast series out of Durham, Ontario called Big Theatre/Small Towns. “It’s very local specific, but quite appealing to anyone in a smaller town trying to do performance art,” says Reeves. Focusing on the impacts of Covid-19, one event that explores the intersection of storytelling, travel and the pandemic is Postcard Stories. Here, the Burlington Performing Arts Centre is encouraging children and adults to write a 100-word story to a loved one on the back of a postcard. The intent is to bring us together through shared memories.

In Pacific-Canada, locals to the Vancouver area can sign up for a two-day plant foraging workshop, where participants will collect plants on the first day, and then learn to extract ink from them on the second, which can be used for anything from watercolour to printmaking. Reeves explains that the workshop will offer “an innovative connection between nature and art. At the same time, it will take people outside, exploring their space.” Reeves says that this year’s theme had been picked before COVID-19, but that the team decided to stick with it despite its now unintended significance. “We thought that it was relevant and that we might be surprised by the new ways people are thinking of how to put their work out there.” Usually festival-goers would only participate in their local Culture Days event, but the move to a digital environment has created unexpected ways for people to connect cross-country. Culture 44 | the COLLECTION

Days will have more digital programming than ever before, while still incorporating in-person activities, in accordance with provincial rules. Reeves anticipates that due to increased online content, Canadians will be able to embrace the festival on a truly national level, in ways previously unavailable, and that this might be just the thing that Canada and the arts need right now. “We see that people are turning to the arts for solace, for connection, for distraction, and entertainment. This year, I hope that even when we can’t be together in large groups as audiences, that [visitors to Culture Days] will find the arts bring us together, and that we can share in a collective experience of being creative, learning from each other and connecting.” For more information on this year's lineup, visit www.culturedays.ca



WHO OWNS THAT TREE?

How to resolve boundary tree disputes in the GTA By Chris Kamarianakis, Protect Your Boundaries

46 | the COLLECTION

Over the past five years, we at Protect Your Boundaries have witnessed an astonishing number of boundary disputes involving trees. Typically, these disputes will involve one of two scenarios: A) B)

A neighbour removes or harms a tree that they believe is theirs (to the disagreement of their neighbour); There is a desire to remove a tree that one neighbour believes is encroaching on their property, while the other neighbour disagrees.


1. If any part of a tree trunk is over the boundary, then it is considered a “boundary tree.” 2. The trunk is defined as the portion of the tree between the “root collar” and “branch collar” (where the first main branch and the first main root split off the main trunk in the direction of the boundary.) 3. A boundary tree is considered shared regardless of how much of it is on each side of the property line. All rights, obligations, costs and liabilities are shared equally. 4. The Ontario Forestry Act says that you cannot cut a boundary tree down unless both neighbours consent to it (even if you have a permit from the City). 5. Each municipality has different levels of involvement in disputes involving boundary trees. Check with your local by-law office. 6. Lastly, if a tree is NOT a boundary tree but its branches are hanging over the neighbour’s yard (or roots are interfering with the neighbour’s patio), you are allowed, without seeking permission, to trim the offending growth, providing that you don’t kill the tree or cause structural damage to it.

These disputes can get very heated, very quickly. The fear of losing a beloved tree is real, and the results are both immediate and permanent. You can’t just plant another 50-year old maple the next day! So, what are the rules, and who enforces them? If you find yourself in a similar situation, on either side of the fence, here are some basic guidelines to consider.

The experts who will help you navigate all this are: a Land Surveyor to determine where the property boundary is; an Arborist to tell you where the root and branch collars are, as well as tell you how much of the tree you can trim without damaging it; and the Municipal By-Law office to tell you what your local regulations are. Remember! Never just cut a tree down…follow the process and get it right! Chris Kamarianakis is CEO of Protect Your Boundaries, the most comprehensive online resource for Greater Toronto Area (GTA) homeowners seeking the knowledge, tools and services to prevent and resolve land and property boundary issues.

eat, drink and be thankful How Chef John Horne is approaching Thanksgiving a little differently this year By John Horne, Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants

When the pandemic first hit Toronto in mid-March, I never could have imagined the devastating impact it was going to have on the restaurant industry. Acting quickly, our executive team at Oliver & Bonacini made the tough but necessary decision to temporarily close all of our restaurants across the country. In my role as District Executive Chef, I oversee the culinary visions at Canoe, Auberge du Pommier, Jump, Biff’s Bistro, Liberty Commons and Maison Selby. Each of those restaurants’ teams are like family to me, so it was heartbreaking to have to shut down — even though it was undoubtedly the right thing to do. Now, roughly six months later, I’m so proud of the challenges our community have overcome in order to flatten the curve and find a new path forward. As we begin to hunker down for the fall and plan our family’s first Thanksgiving amid COVID-19, I’m approaching everything with a newfound sense of perspective and gratitude. Here are the top three things I’m thankful for — and the roles they play in nourishing our emotional, mental and physical well-being in the kitchen. 48 | the COLLECTION


#1

all things local

One silver lining of this pandemic is that it’s brought our community closer together with a renewed sense of duty to support our local businesses. To source my produce, I love working directly with Tamarack Farms and 100km Foods, as well as my own family’s farm, but there are many amazing local suppliers that I would recommend this Thanksgiving including: Cumbrae’s: Working exclusively with small, family-run farms in Ontario and Quebec, they ensure all animals are raised in healthy and humane conditions. Their turkeys are Big Whites from Wellington County, while their pigs are Yorkshire Durocs and Heritage Berkshires. Cheese Boutique: I’ve known Afrim for ages… back when we both still had hair. His shop’s selection of imported cheeses, as well as pantry staples and specialty items, is secondto-none. Plus, they’ll deliver right to your door. Forbes Wild Foods: Canoe has been working with Jonathan Forbes for years, sourcing everything from spruce tips to juniper berries to chanterelle mushrooms. If you’re looking to

incorporate some wild or foraged ingredients into your Thanksgiving feast, Forbes is your best source. Blood Brothers Brewing: Located on Geary Avenue, it doesn’t get much cooler than Blood Brothers. Their Shumei IPA is super juicy, with notes of grapefruit, orange zest and fragrant pine. Any of their pale ales would be great for basting your turkey with… just make sure to sneak in a few sips for yourself. Hinterland Wine Company: Based in Prince Edward County, these guys focus exclusively on sparkling wine and cider. What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than with a bottle or two of bubbles?

Despite Thanksgiving traditionally being all about over-indulging, I am trying to promote a sense of “quality over quantity” this year. Plus, I always find food and drinks taste so much better when you know where they came from and understand the story behind them. FALL 2020 | 49


#2 veggies galore Even though turkey or ham are the stars of Thanksgiving, I have a big place in my heart for all of the beautiful seasonal produce that Ontario has to offer. We’re so lucky to have such a bounty of ingredients growing right in our backyard, so let’s not take that for granted! Here are a few tips for stress-free veggie sides that may end up stealing the spotlight: Super Creamy Mashed Potatoes: Start by dicing your peeled potatoes (I recommend Yukon Golds) into large cubes, and bring them to a boil. Gently heat your milk, cream and unsalted butter in a saucepan. Once boiled and drained, let the potatoes dry (without letting them cool!) before passing them through a ricer into a large bowl. Gradually add your warm butter and milk mixture, and stir vigorously until silky smooth. And while you should feel free to goose up your taters with chives or grated cheddar, I prefer serving mashed potatoes on their own, simply garnished with a few sprigs of savory — my favourite fall herb.

50 | the COLLECTION


Wild Cranberry Sauce: For a super aromatic cranberry sauce, combine red wine (I use Biff’s Juicy Red for its fruit-forward notes) with sugar (or, if you’re like my mom, maple syrup) and fall spices like cinnamon, cloves, star anise and allspice, and reduce to a syrup. Add your wild cranberries and toss thoroughly until heated through and the flavours are well-incorporated. Whether you’re sourcing from a forager or picking your own, wild cranberries are going to pack more of a punch in a smaller bite than farmed cranberries, yielding an extra tart and almost cherry-like flavour. Roasted Butternut Squash, Cauliflower & Heirloom Carrots: There’s nothing better than an oven full of sweet butternut squash, crispy browned cauliflower, and crunchy yet tender carrots. Top your veg with a smattering of fresh herbs like thyme and shiso, pickled pearl onions (now is a good time to use up all the pickles you’ve been hoarding!), and garlic chips for extra texture and crunch. Top it all off with a drizzle of spicy Hungarian paprika mayo, or Sriracha mayo, for a little kick of heat. And let’s not forget about other fall favourites like beets, brussels sprouts, parsnips or rutabaga. There’s no shortage of opportunities to spruce up your side game and bring your Thanksgiving feast to the next level. Your vegetarian family and friends will thank you! FALL 2020 | 51


#3 cooking with my kids Now that my kids — Kaitlyn, 7, and Mason, 4 — are a bit older, I’ve been trying to involve them more in the kitchen. From simple prep jobs like washing, peeling and chopping vegetables, to setting the table and helping to clear dishes, I think it’s important to get your kids involved in these types of tasks from a young age. They learn responsibility, practical life skills, and let’s face it, parents will enjoy the down time while the little ones are occupied with the task at hand. During lockdown this spring, my kids put on their mini sous chef hats and helped me make a ton of soups for our extended family, other families in need, and first responders and front-line workers. I also took the opportunity to start teaching them how to roll out pasta dough, and make different sauces using the fresh herbs from our garden. They loved having the freedom to create their own sauce recipes — they felt like wizards concocting their very own potions!

Since Thanksgiving should be about spending quality time together in the kitchen, this should be a great learning opportunity for your kids, and a way to take some of the stress off of moms and dads. You can start them off slowly with fun and easy jobs like washing veggies, and build them up to learning knife skills. I taught both of my kids how to chop with plastic knives, and now they’ve graduated to real knives. That said, I won’t be letting them slice up a butternut squash anytime soon.

SHIFTING GEARS Grow your knowledge of the city with a bike tour of Toronto By Mike Friskney The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a number of interesting developments in Toronto. One of those is the resurgence of bike riding. It seems homebound individuals and families have turned to cycling as a way to escape for a change of scenery. In fact, pausing for a pedal has proven to be such a phenomenon that if you had decided to purchase a bike during the early part of summer, you would have had a hard time doing so. By July, demand for two-wheelers had reached a pitch so feverish that whether you shopped in-store or online, retailers, from big box to cycling speciality stores, were completely sold out. Even finding a reasonably priced used bike on Kijiji or Facebook Marketplace has been nearly impossible. If you were one of the lucky ones to get your hands on a bike, you’ve probably logged a fair number of kilometres hitting the trails, pathways and roadways of your community. But bike riding isn’t just for grabbing some fresh air and exercise. If you book yourself and your family on a guided bike tour, cycling becomes a great way to discover new things about Toronto. 54 | the COLLECTION


Don’t just ride past landmarks, learn about them. “The appeal of going on a guided bike tour is that it’s a chance to experience the city from a different perspective,” says Terrence Eta, who has been operating Toronto Bicycle Tours & Events since 2011. “It provides you with new insights, new connections about the city.” Bike tours are fun too, and adding a tour element makes a bike ride even more enjoyable. Participants can cruise at a leisurely pace along pathways and bike lanes, stopping at various points to hear memorable stories and intriguing facts, ask questions and take photos. “A guided bike tour is a laid-back way to stitch together all these different places and hear stories about them, all wrapped up in one experience that lasts just a few hours,” says Eta.

Choose from a variety of Toronto bike tours. Depending on your interests, there’s a Toronto bike tour that will fit your needs. TORONTO BICYCLE TOURS & EVENTS Offers four standard tours plus custom tours: HEART OF DOWNTOWN TOUR is a great intro to the city with must-see cultural and historic landmarks. ISLAND TOUR allows you to explore the beauty of the islands, along with the history of this quaint cottage enclave, the largest car-free community in North America. DOWNTOWN & ISLAND COMBO TOUR is a fun one-day experience where you’ll explore downtown during the daytime and enjoy the Islands at night.

ROUND THE CITY TOUR is the ultimate day of discovery with a 7-hour pedal that takes riders through 15 neighbourhoods. FALL 2020 | 55


photo credit: istock/peterspiro

FITZ TOURS Offers three standard tours: TORONTO BIKE TOUR: THE ESSENTIALS where riders will visit must-see locations and get a feel for the city’s layout and culture. TORONTO BIKE TOUR: HOODS & HIDDEN GEMS will show why locals love the city so much, as you explore all the hidden gems. TORONTO ISLANDS BIKE TOUR is all about nature, lake and city views, rustic cottages, and a beachfront campfire! AIRBNB Offers various tours as well. HISTORY IN MOTION – WATERFRONT WEST is a unique experience along the Waterfront Trail, stopping at key locations like Ireland Park, Coronation Park and Sunnyside pool. VISTAS & FRESH WATER TORONTO BY EBIKE is a great way to familiarize yourself with eBiking as you travel from Cabbagetown to Ontario Place. TORONTO WATERFRONT BIKE ADVENTURE will take you along the waterfront and islands, as you hear stories about key people and events from the last 300 years. 56 | the COLLECTION

Bike tours are safe for all ages and levels of riders. For some people, the idea of taking the family on a bike tour on the streets of a major city like Toronto may seem unsafe. This is not true. Before Covid-19, the primary clientele for bike tour companies in the city were tourists, many who were families. As a result, the routes the bike tours take are predominantly made up of pathways and designated bike lanes. “When parents contact us, they often say they want to book our Island tour because they know there are no cars on the Island,” says Eta. “To let them know that all of our tours are safe, I point out that we have families on all of our tours. We’ve had kids as young as eight riding on their own.”

Covid-19 precautions so you can ride with peace of mind. Some of those precautions include: wearing face masks, maintaining a six foot distance between riders and guides, disinfecting bikes and helmets after each ride, and hand sanitizer being offered by guides to guests. Plus, group sizes are usually between two and five riders. For a complete list of Covid-19 measures being taken by each bike tour operator, visit their respective websites.

What makes Realtors tick? Is it about money or helping people or simply liking the exterior architecture and interior design of houses and condominiums? I have wanted to be in sales since I was a boy. For me, it’s about the people; the ones that I have met and the ones I have yet to meet. It is about the interaction with people, and the action and art of creating a sale for them. It’s not just about the money. Three months after moving into the second home that he purchased through us, a tough litigation lawyer called and said, “Thank you. You made us very happy with this house,” which is one he never would have considered had he known in advance it was a bungalow! That’s my favourite part about being a Realtor...when someone calls and says how happy they are with their new home, and then refers us to someone they care about. It just doesn’t get any better than that!

We really do not ‘sell’ homes...the homes have to sell themselves. Our job is to sell the deal, either Buyer to Seller, or Seller to Buyer. We are there to provide information to our clients so that they can make an informed decision to purchase, sell, or walk away (which we have recommended on occasion, when we deemed it was in our client’s best interest not to buy a particular property, or accept an offer we felt should not be accepted). The number of yearly sales has never been as important to us as the quality of the service. We always explore every opportunity to the maximum for our clients!
