“A beautiful space starts from the ground up with a weavers art…” – Michael Pourvakil

THE PURVEYOR Michael Pourvakil, President

After Hours collection Inspired by the unique symbols and characters, these rugs aspired to create a collection defined by a distinctive style of it’s own. Pay attention to the layering of motifs - sharp lines against a backdrop of bold, faded strokes. Study each design and observe the number of hues you can find in one piece, then step back and witness the symphony of colour come together in one illustrative tone. The collection is named After Hours to allude to the mysterious aspect of the night - when street artists paint their most wild ideas and coyotes howl to the moon.

FALL 2021

PRES I DE N T ' S L E T T E R Welcome to the Fall edition of The Collection. After Summer 2020, it was wonderful to see kids returning to camp, and families able to reconnect for small gatherings. Budweiser Stage even opened up for some concerts in August, and we saw the return of the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre! We are still a long way from normal, but there is room for a little cautious optimism. This summer, the market for real estate in the Greater Toronto Area continued its torrid pace. With 3/4 of the year now behind us, the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board is already reporting more than 97,000 sales. That’s more than all of 2020, which posted the third highest total on record. In case you were wondering, the record for home sales in a calendar year was established in 2016 with 113,133. If we look at sales of homes on the regional MLS between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, there were over 138,000 sales in a 12 month period. That exceeds the best year on record by more than 20 percent!

HARVEY KALLES Chairman & CEO

With dwindling supply of available housing and so much demand for home ownership across the region, prices are on the rise, and homes are selling in record time. If buying or selling real estate is part of your goals for 2021, I would encourage you to speak with a member of our knowledgeable sales team. Turning to our latest issue, there’s a lot to explore. To help you with your next renovation project, interior designer Philip Mitchell is here to discuss preserving heritage elements in the home. For those observing a vegan lifestyle, chef Shira Blustein has some great ideas for autumn recipes that use seasonal and wildcrafted natural ingredients. And, Canadian icon, Rick Mercer is here for a one-on-one interview in advance of his new memoir. Of course, there’s much more in store including a full directory of our current real estate listings! We hope you enjoy the latest issue. We wish you and your family a happy and healthy fall season.

The Art of RESTORATION H ONOU R I N G DES I GN A N D RES PECTI N G H I STORY By Philip Mitchell | Philip Mitchell Design

all photos by: john cullen

8 | the COLLECTION


There is no place like home. This has always rung true for me, much in the way that we understand there is no one else quite like you. Each of our homes is unique, telling its own story — the story of those who live (and who have lived) there.

Growing up between the Canadian countryside and urban Los Angeles, I was raised with a patchwork of contemporary and traditional styles. The eclecticism and the contrasts moved me at a young age and sparked my love for design. I soon developed a passion for designing and decorating homes of all styles: traditional, contemporary and historic. What I love about my role in the design process is that it is ever-changing. Every home presents a unique set of challenges requiring different approaches. Understanding the history and concept behind any building is paramount to creating a home that connects the house to the owners. My husband and I have always enjoyed restoring and renovating historic houses. From our first in Toronto, a grand old Tudor house, to our 1920’s beach house on the shores of Lake Erie, or to our pre-war apartment in a landmark building on the Upper East Side of New York, we have always been drawn to old homes. If there’s one thing I’ve come to recognize from living in old homes, it’s that we don’t consider them ours. Instead, we view ourselves as caretakers, nurturing them until they go on to lead a life after us. Recognizing and respecting a home’s history is important to a successful restoration. When embarking on renovating a historic home, there is a responsibility to do the work thoughtfully, with the mindset of leaving it for the next steward. We are not the first, second, or even third family to live in our home in Nova Scotia. Built in 1795, White Cottage has been occupied by 13 families over the years, all of whom have added to or updated the house to meet their needs at the time. FALL 2021 | 9


When we purchased it, much of the original character had been removed, and it was used only as a summer residence. Our first priority was to build a coach house on the property to live in while we restored the main house for a year-round home. Our long-term goal was to maintain or restore as much of the architectural character and charm that the original structure possessed, while updating the home for the needs of our modern-day lifestyle. When renovating a historic home, you must first identify the factors that will shape your decisions. Deciding whether to restore your house, and to what extent, involves considering its history, architecture, and the current condition of its materials, finishes, and systems. You should also consider your household’s lifestyle and what personal needs the finished house will have to accommodate. Additionally, local historic designations, local building codes, and other regulatory considerations will impact whatever path you take. 10 | the COLLECTION


Selecting your team is of the utmost importance. You’ll need one that understands historic buildings and that has had the experience of restoring them. Planning and design should be done at the onset so that goals, expectations and costs can be monitored and managed. Kitchens and bathrooms are usually the first items that owners want to address. However, getting the infrastructure up to date: repairing leaks, improving heating and ventilation, installing proper insulation, and addressing the sound structure, should be the first things tackled, as they will produce a more comfortable home. Older homes were designed for different times, so floor plans may need to be redesigned to create a better flow and to improve room sizes for today’s more active lifestyles. Sometimes the work can become more extensive than originally planned. We ended up having to dismantle the entire house board by board, rebuilding the

infrastructure and then replacing and reusing all the original elements that could be salvaged. We brought together a team of local craftsmen and artisans to recreate missing mouldings, beadboard, trim and newel posts, boat builders to handcraft arches throughout the house, and an artist to “age” the new woodwork to match the original. Each home requires different talents to address its needs. The key to a quality renovation is how well it accommodates modern technologies, living styles and additions into the existing structure. When adding to or altering a home, consider its scale, massing, proportion and balance. Design new additions and alterations with attention to detail. Use materials, textures, and colours that are similar to those of the original building. Integrate modern touches with care and caution. Keep changes nonintrusive and complimentary with the house’s design and style. Be careful not to let alterations destroy FALL 2021 | 11


or cover historically or architecturally significant features. Rather, opt to include modern systems and sympathetically designed changes that will enhance the house’s history. As with life, not everything in your old home will be perfect. Fortunately, we’ve learned to love, appreciate, and embrace the character and imperfections that old homes possess. At White Cottage, we carefully removed the original wide plank floors and subfloors, before reinstalling them so that our floors would retain the patina from centuries of wear and tear, telling the story of why we love the space. The original stair treads are worn by thousands of steps, reminding us of the many people who walked up them for over 225 years. This careworn beauty cannot be replaced, and we celebrate these as marks of a life well-lived, instead of flaws that need correcting. We view the process of restoration as being highly sustainable, giving new life to something that could have been disregarded or disposed of. While a sense of warmth and history is just one benefit of restoring old homes, there are undoubtedly others, such as a lighter carbon footprint when compared to a new build, or higher quality and craftsmanship than is often found in newer construction. Ultimately, successful restoration is about knowing what to sacrifice and what to preserve. We value the integrity of every element and relish the opportunity to restore each home so that it may continue to write new chapters in an ongoing story.

B𝒺𝗇e𝒶𝗍𝗁 𝗍𝗁𝒺 𝖲𝗎𝓇𝖿𝖺𝖼𝒺 Picasso:

Painting the Blue Period By Louise Nunn If a young Pablo Picasso walked the streets around the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), how might he respond in paint? In Toronto, would he recognize subjects not unlike those he painted at the age of twenty in Paris and Barcelona? In 1901, men returning from war, and destitute women supporting their children, served as inspiration for Picasso’s Blue Period. One hundred and twenty years later, as the AGO prepares for a first-of-its-kind exhibition dedicated to the Blue Period, its curators hope to echo the original plea of the artist: how do we engage with the marginalized and, given the chance, will we? Kenneth Brummel, Senior Curator at the AGO, notes that Picasso’s Blue Period is “blue” not only because of the period’s tell-tale monochromatic blue palette, but because of the poverty, social unrest and injustices that captured Picasso’s attention from 1901 to 1904. At just 19 years of age, Picasso was already an ambitious and extremely talented young artist who jumped between the art scene in Paris and Barcelona. “In 1901, living in Paris,” Brummel explains, “he would paint women who lived at the prison of Saint-Lazare…this is a prison where prostitutes were incarcerated. And then he returns to Barcelona (1902) and he’s dealing with a general strike.” Brummel continues, “he had to contend with the labour uprising outside of his studio in Barcelona — there was a barricade erected less than a block away from his front door. I think that was another reason why he felt obligated to engage with the question of how to depict poverty, and the plight of poor, struggling women.” The Blue Room (La Chambre Blue, 1901); Crouching Beggarwoman (La Miséreuse accroupie, 1902); and The Soup (La Soupe, 1903) are the names to remember in preparation for this exhibit. Officially named Picasso: Painting the Blue Period, and presented in collaboration with The Phillips Collection in Washington, the exhibit centres around these three paintings, which Brummel calls pivotal works of the period. In addition, the AGO will display works by Picasso’s contemporaries and influencers. Older Catalan and Spanish influences like Greek painter El Greco 22 | the COLLECTION

and sculptures by Auguste Rodin will help narrate the creation of each painting. The exhibition will include a total of 104 objects from 65 collections across 15 countries. On the surface, The Blue Room depicts Picasso’s studio in Paris, where a nude woman bathes herself

in a small tub. But, as with many of Picasso’s works, there is much more hidden below the surface — figuratively and literally. This is where the exhibition gets more interesting. Thanks to cutting edge conservation technology, researchers have discovered hidden gems beneath the surface of all three of the main paintings. FALL 2021 | 23

The Blue Room was painted over a portrait of a bourgeois man, and Crouching Beggarwoman hides the painting of a Spanish landscape. But researchers soon realized there was more to be found. By using hyperspectral imaging and x-ray fluorescence technology — scanning the painting so that it reveals all its secrets, visible and invisible – Brummel and others found a now-covered right arm on the canvas of Crouching Beggarwoman. Beneath the painting of a mother giving a bowl of soup to her child (The 24 | the COLLECTION

Soup) is a tabletop and jug. Further layered within is a silhouette of another woman standing between what is now the mother and her child. Brummel explains that this high-tech conservation work will form part of the exhibition itself. “[We’ll have] what we're calling a laboratory, and that lab will explain how we were able to investigate the underlying layers of The Blue Room.” He says there will be one for each of the three paintings, and


that these rooms will go into detail on the various discoveries. “Literally, visitors will be able to unpeel that painting, and see the layers underneath.” The exhibition will wind through the first floor of the AGO in a single path that takes visitors through that period of the painter’s life. It is laid out so that you will be able to walk in the footsteps of Picasso himself, as he witnesses, experiences, and paints his surroundings. Beginning with Picasso’s emergence as a modern artist in 1901, it continues to the study of the nude and The Blue Room’s laboratory room. Visitors will

then be introduced to the influences behind The Blue Room and the women of Saint-Lazare. Next, there is a space dedicated to women in Barcelona, Catholic and religious art, and contemporaneous paintings of the Virgin Mary, all of which will prepare visitors for Picasso’s Crouching Beggarwoman — which Brummel points out is Picasso’s version of a secular Virgin Mary. The laboratory dedicated to this painting comes next, then the artistic influences related to it, before visitors drift into the next room and the final of the three paintings, The Soup. The adjoining area moves into the year 1903 and

the representation of impoverished men. The program concludes with Picasso transitioning to the Rose Period in 1904. Though one of the smallest, most ‘ordinary’ paintings in the exhibition, The Soup, nevertheless leaves the deepest mark. It is the simple recreation of a scene familiar to all: a mother feeding a child some soup. Yet, Brummel invites us to wonder at the power of its message. “Picasso with this little painting, elevates a struggling woman and child who are exchanging a bowl of soup. He makes them into timeless, monumental figures, who have the same

26 | the COLLECTION

grandeur and dignity as the Parisian murals in their City Hall or in the Pantheon.” By painting The Soup and others like it, amidst a Catholic and religious backdrop, Brummel insists “he’s asking spectators to revere the downtrodden… to revere them as if they were saints.” “That was the revelation for me…that [Picasso] was taking the expectation of his bourgeois audience and confusing it, by forcing them to look at people they would normally ignore on the street, and transforming those individuals into saints and Virgin Marys.”

Picasso: Painting the Blue Period runs through January 2022. To learn more, visit ago.ca/exhibitions/picasso-painting-blue-period



LEGAL MATTERS

1. Have you seen other projects completed by this builder?

By Mark Weisleder Most builder condominium agreements look the same and are, generally speaking, written in favour of the builder. Builders can delay closings, change layouts and finishings, and have rights to cancel agreements under certain circumstances, with little recourse for buyers. In Ontario, buyers of new condominiums have 10 days from signing to change their minds for any reason. When buyers come to me with an Agreement, here are the key considerations I raise to help them make an informed decision to proceed with or cancel the Agreement:

When you visit other completed projects, you can simply ask the buyers whether their unit was completed on time, whether they were given what was promised, and whether the builder completed all deficiencies in a timely manner. 2. Do you have the right to assign your unit before occupancy or closing? Condominium projects can take several years to complete. Buyer circumstances change, and while they may initially plan to move into the unit, they may also find that they need to sell their Agreement. Many builders will provide a limited right to assign the agreement as an incentive. This will usually require a fee, and may limit your right to advertise the unit for sale on an MLS system, but it is better to have this right written in from the outset.


3. What are the additional charges?

5. Will the building permit pets or Airbnb?

The purchase price includes HST, but there are additional charges specified in your Agreement. It is very important that you understand these charges, as they will have to be paid at final closing, and can add thousands of dollars to the amount owing. Many builders will put a cap on these charges from the beginning to give you a better idea as to what the total additional charges will be at closing.

Be sure to understand the rules of your new condominium, which will be part of the condominium documents given when you sign the Agreement. These will contain provisions as to whether, for example, there are weight restrictions on pets, the number of pets allowed, and whether the building will permit short-term leases or Airbnb.

4. Will you be able to rent the unit at occupancy?

If you do the research and ask the right questions, when you sign with a builder, you will avoid problems and be part of a successful closing.

Many builder agreements do not permit this. If you are buying a unit as an investment, you will want to include an ability to rent the unit out once you are given occupancy, which can be 8 to 12 months before the building is registered. Without this, you may not have the income stream to pay the rent you will owe to the builder during the occupancy period.

Moving forward with uncertainty Tips to make the most of a new school year

With the start of the school year, it’s important to pause and reflect on the past. New beginnings can bring on fears and anxiety of what is to come. So, when feeling like this, remember…you are making it though a pandemic! We have adjusted to the new normal and have adapted to an entirely different way of living. We’ve learned that life can go on, even during trying and unpredictable circumstances. In most cases, we’ve even discovered that we are equipped with a new-found resilience. So, before you move forward, pat yourself on the back and reflect on how far you have come. Kudos to all of you! So here we are, it’s a new school year with new challenges and adventures. Things might seem different, but we have learned we can plow through these changes. If that isn’t a silver lining, I don’t know what is. As Founder of Project Give Back and the author of Lessons from Jacob and Without One Word Spoken, I have learned a thing or two about living every day to the fullest, even on extremely gut wrenching and difficult days. When we are struck by grief, we can fully appreciate the fleeting benefits of joy. In other words, when we battle tumultuous waves, we can learn to surf. Here are a few tips to help you navigate a new school year during unpredictable times.

By Ellen Schwartz, Project Giveback

Do what you love and do it often. When you do what you love, you have purpose, and when you have purpose, you are your best self. When you continue to own your craft, you become an expert, and this will give you confidence, improve your self-esteem and attract like-minded people into your space.

Make at least one person smile each day. Putting a smile on someone else’s face will put a smile on your own. There are so many ways to make someone smile. I’m not talking massive gestures, just the small things that can make a world of difference. Open a door for someone who has their hands full, tell someone how you feel about them, ask questions and allow others to speak, and then listen.

Give to others. The logo of Project Give Back is a boomerang. From experience, we’ve learned that when you throw kindness out into the world, it always comes back to you. We all have something to give, whether it be a talent, a craft or even precious time. Lend it out to the world and you will be blown away by how great you will feel.

Three important questions to consider. Life can be overwhelming at times. When we feel this stress, remember to break things down into FALL 2021 | 33


Before you speak

THINK.

IS IT TRUE? IS IT HELPFUL? IS IT INSPIRING? IS IT NECESSARY? IS IT KIND? small pieces to help remember what truly matters. Each evening, I ask myself three questions: 1. Was I kind to myself? 2. Was I kind to others? 3. Did I do my very best today? Sometimes we can say yes to each of these. Other times, we may have forgotten and fallen short. That’s okay. We’re only human, and tomorrow is a whole new day.

Practice Worry Time. For 21 years, I lived with unpredictable tomorrows. Our eldest son lived with a fatal and progressive illness which robbed him of the ability to see, speak, eat by mouth, and even move. Much of my life was out of my control, so I controlled what I could. Living through a pandemic can be similar in that we feel we have lost control of our lives. Each day, I manufacture something called Worry Time. I worry about everything on my mind, everything that is pulling at me from the inside out. If I can fix it, I do so right away! If I can’t, I say to myself, “I have worried about it, and it is out of my control.” Then I try to let it go. If the worry keeps popping up, I repeat that one line. Eventually, it doesn’t pop up as intrusively, and at times it disappears altogether. 34 | the COLLECTION

Think. Through Project Give Back, we visit many schools. As we walk pass the bulletin boards in the corridors, we can’t help but notice inventive, creative and inspiring messages on display. One stuck with me, and I took it to heart. On one board were the large words: Before you speak…THINK. T: Is it true? H: Is it helpful? I: Is it inspiring? N: Is it necessary? K: Is it kind? When we follow this sage advice, we rarely regret what comes out of our mouths, and we become better listeners. Let’s all embrace this school season with optimism and hope. Let’s continue to support one another, be kind to one another, and learn from one another. Ellen Schwartz is a teacher, community leader, author, and public speaker. As founder of Project Give Back, she links decades of teaching together with a passion for charitable causes. She co-founded Jacob’s Ladder, Canadian Foundation for the Control of Neurodegenerative Diseases. www.projectgiveback.com

IN CONVERSATION WITH RICK MERCER Over a career that has spanned three decades, there is little that Rick Mercer hasn’t done. Known for his work on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Made in Canada, and The Rick Mercer Report, the comedian has had a slumber party with Stephen Harper, gone supersonic in a military f ighter jet, and even rolled a joint with Pierre Burton. Along the way, he’s racked up nearly 30 Geminis and Canadian Screen Awards, received the Governor General Performing Arts Award for lifetime achievement, published four best-sellers, and was appointed Off icer of the Order of Canada. His CBC te l e v i s i o n s p e c i a l , Ta l k i n g to A m e r i c a n s , re m a i n s t h e highest rated comedy show in Canadian history. This fall, this most private of public f igures is turning t h e s p o t l i g h t o n h i m s e l f . H i s m e m o i r , Ta l k i n g to Canadians, is a hilarious read, chronicling Rick’s rise f rom highly unpromising schoolboy to the heights of te l e v i s i o n f a m e . We c a u g h t u p w i t h t h e a c c l a i m e d satirist to discuss the state of politics, favourite moments, and his new book.

FALL 2021 | 39


The Collection: This was an election season. Have you missed having a platform? Rick Mercer: Yes and no. I wouldn't say that I'm not interested in politics, but I find politics less appealing now than I ever have in my life. I'm glad that I'm not professionally required to be immersed in it. There are certainly days where I’d like to do something. I would like to be able to rant, I would like to do some sketch idea, but most days it's okay. There was a period in my life where, when the campaigns would be happening, if I wasn't on air, I would crawl over broken glass to cover the election. But this election, not once did I think, ‘Wow, I'd like to be on those planes.’ Not even close. TC: How would you describe the state of politics in Canada? RM: Well, it's nastier than it's ever been. I can remember saying that when the war between Paul Martin and Jean Chretien erupted. It was like, wow, we haven't really seen this kind of nasty interparty business before. And then with Stephen Harper, certainly the

partisanship between Liberals and Tories was vicious, and we all said, ‘well, it's never been this nasty.’ And, of course, it just got nastier. TC: Do people still have a sense of humour around politics? RM: One of the reasons why campaigns are fun is because all these strange things happen. This is when candidates put on the crazy hats and pretend they know how to drive all-terrain vehicles. Or weird eruptions happen when candidates that haven't been road tested are revealed to be quite kooky. But, at the end of the day, politics is deadly serious. And, we're in a campaign, during a pandemic. That takes the bloom off the comedy rose. And these protests…There is a palatable anger there and it's coming from a dark place. Those people aren't going away and we're treating them, pretty much as a whole, with complete disdain. I understand why people are doing that. Everyone is tired, everyone got vaccinated, people lost loved ones. It doesn't get more

serious than this. But we're treating these people with total disdain and that's not going to help bring them into the fold, that's not going to calm their anger. I'm not saying I want to go out and hug them, but I'm very worried. There's a lot of them. TC: Why did you decide that now was the right time to publish a memoir? RM: Well, I've always enjoyed publishing books. I would write these collections of rants and I really enjoyed essay writing. The publishers that I've been with suggested it was time to write it. I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to find the time, but then of course the pandemic happened. I had this one big project, and it was staring me in the face and there was no reason not to do it. TC: What can readers expect? RM: Well, it's the first half of my life. I wrote a fair bit about growing up in Newfoundland. Ultimately, I went in with one goal. At the end of the day, I just wanted it to be a funny read. It wasn't going to be really heavy… it's not like I grew up in Angela’s Ashes. I didn’t grow up in these horrible circumstances and I had to get all that off my chest. I think, I was pretty blessed. But, my journey in show business is pretty unique and I've had a lot of experiences. From growing up in Middle Cove to Parliament Hill and back again. It was very exciting. TC: You’ve had opportunity to meet all kinds of celebrities and all kinds of regular Canadians. Which do you prefer? RM: Being one of the creators of 22 Minutes, we never really talked to regular folks, that was never the format. The format was political satire, news, parities, and I loved doing that. But as we transitioned and I created The Mercer Report, the one thing we wanted to do was move away from that. Certainly, we had celebrities on over the years, but I was mostly happy talking to an oyster fisherman in Prince Edward Island and exploring what that's like, or going to Nunavut, or to so many of the nooks and crannies that I went to that a celebrity has never set foot in. I enjoyed celebrating all of those places we went to, celebrating those people, and making them appear as cool as any celebrity. I felt like

TALKING

AG U E S C H O O

that was my superpower. I could take a regular person who's never been on TV before, and would never be on TV again, and make them look great. TC: Do you have any favourite moments? RM: I was on the road with Jeff Dion and Pete Sutherland when I accidentally stumbled upon Talking to Americans. We were in Washington DC, and it was a total fluke, an accident in the lab. We were killing time and this fellow came along and just started talking and saying the most bizarre things about Canada but in a very polite way. He wanted to know why we were way up here in America, and I started goofing around and told him we were there to cover the summit between President Ralph Benmergui of Canada and President Clinton. And he was like, “Oh, I've heard all about the Benmergui fellow,” and I thought this is so weird. So, I called Jeff and Pete and was like ‘let's interview this guy’ and we ended up doing this segment, Talking to Americans. And, of course, it blew the roof off the joint and we did it a lot over the next three years. Not only were the pieces funny, but I was on the road with two of my favourite people, exploring America, eating in great places. It was the best job in the world. I couldn't even envision a job as good as that, and it came out of nowhere. FALL 2021 | 41


SONJA SMITS TRIES HER HARDEST NOT

TC: Why do you think The Mercer Report had such staying power? RM: I think Canadians have an innate interest in their country. One of the problems is that it’s so bloody big. So, if I said, I'm in the foothills of Alberta, people would be like, oh cool, he's in the foothills of Alberta. I wonder what that's like. I'm in Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick heading out on a boat. They’re like, oh, that's pretty good. And a lot of families watched the show together, and I think people liked the idea that their kids were watching, because it's imprinting Canada on them. I can't tell you over the years the number of times I've heard from people who will say things like “I swam with seals in Quebec because I watched you do it” or “I went to this part of Vancouver Island after you went.” I think that's why people tuned in. Love of country. TC: You recently co-starred in a new Tragically Hip video. How did that come about? RM: My relationship with The Tragically Hip goes pretty far back. I was doing a sitcom called Made in Canada. A classic Canadian sitcom…we had six episodes and no money. And I had it in my mind, that in this world, wouldn't it be great if when the radio was on, it was a Tragically Hip song, and wouldn't it be great if The Tragically Hip did the theme song. I knew nothing about licensing music. So, we got in touch with The Tragically

TO STARE AT DAVID SUZUKI’S BLING. I CAN’T GET ENOUGH.

Hip, and I won't go into details because it's in the book, but to the jigs and the reels, I ended up not only having Tragically Hip as my theme song, but I was allowed to use any part of their catalogue, recorded or yet to be recorded, for the entire duration of that show and it was essentially on a handshake. So, I had this relationship because I did that show for a long time. When the call came, would you like to be in a Tragically Hip video, well you don't expect that to happen because, of course, Gord is no longer with us, so I was like, ‘wow.’ Then it was like, “Oh it's an unreleased song,” and I said yes, regardless, but kind of thought, well what does that mean? But, turns out, there's a bunch of unreleased songs and they’re amazing! I don't know a Hip fan that wasn't blown away by that stuff, so to be able to do that was a great honour, and honour is totally the word. TC: Do you have any advice for the next generation of political satirists? RM: Don’t get too cozy, and just create content. Whether it's comedy or satire or music or writing, constantly create content. If that means writing for school papers or shooting sketches on your iPhone, you have to do that. The results are probably not going to be that great, and you have to do it again. But, no one is ever going to pluck you from obscurity and give you that column or that show. You've got to go to work.

LOVE LETTERS TO TORONTO

THE LUMINATO FESTIVAL RETURNS THIS FALL By Jacqueline Nunes

46 | the COLLECTION

Toronto’s acclaimed Luminato Festival was first sparked in the darkness. Following the city’s SARS epidemic in 2007, the goal was to help rebuild Toronto as a creative, culturally vibrant, and globally-connected city. After going dark again last year, the contemporary-arts festival will return this October to celebrate its 15th anniversary and our collective love for our city. “The Luminato Festival is an example of Toronto's tremendous resilience and is an important beacon of hope,” said Mayor John Tory in the news release. “The arts, as demonstrated by Luminato's exciting programming, will play a critical role in bringing this city back to life.” This year’s theme is “Love Letters to Toronto,” and the festival will feature provocative storytelling, musical and theatrical performances, art installations and more, with several original works debuted by renowned Toronto artists. And, it will all be presented virtually. “What’s astonishing to me is that the creativity and the imagination and the energy continues despite all of the lockdowns and restrictions,” says Luminato CEO, Celia Smith. “I can tell you, even though it’s virtual, this will still be the big, bold, beautiful arts festival that you expect from Luminato.”

For nearly two years, the Luminato team has worked on illuminating the path for safe, accessible arts performances. After cancelling the 2020 festival, the team had dreams of an anniversary celebration in 2021 that would fill Toronto’s outside spaces with art, music and performance created entirely by local artists. This would have been a first for the festival, which has always showcased Canadian and international artists, aiming to connect local voices with global conversations. With Ontario locked down in June, the festival was rescheduled for the first time in its history, and the team hired Covid-19 health and safety specialists. “We held onto that dream for quite a long time and worked on it up until about mid-winter last year,” recalls Smith. But with the unpredictability of the Delta variant, the team finally embraced a fully virtual festival, requiring a massive shift for everyone. “We’re generally people who produce live experiences,” says Smith. “We had to switch our heads into, ‘What are we creating and how do we film this?’ We’ve had to become film experts.” That included bringing on board local film production companies, directors, editors,

FALL 2021 | 47

and post-productions teams. Everything is being filmed in advance and will be broadcast on the festival website over five days and five nights (October 13-17), with limited on-demand viewing available following the broadcasts. Also in the works are a few smallscale, Covid-friendly events, such as watch parties or concerts, but those will be announced closer to October, when the Covid context is clear. At the time of writing, the team was in the midst of filming one of its marquee shows, the world premiere of Zaagidiwin: The Way We Love Each Other, an Indigenousled production described as “a moment to reflect on our social responsibilities and our relationship with nature…an adventure (or misadventure) from the land into the city core, revealing its beauty as well as its darkness.” Smith Said, the film team included more than 50 people. The festival has also just wrapped the filming of Guided by Starlight: Exploring Toronto’s Musical Galaxy, a 5-part series showcasing Toronto’s vibrant musical history and future, which was filmed at concert venues from Scarborough to Etobicoke. photo credit: katrina lat

Two world-renowned Toronto artists will also be featured in this year’s festival. Created for the


screens surrounding Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square, Encountering Edward Burtynsky’s In The Wake Of Progress — A Film by Bokeh Collective, tells the epic tale of humanity's impact on the planet through photographs and film from Edward Burtynsky’s 40-year career. Canadian opera singer Measha Brueggergosman will also be featured as she hosts a drive-in Gospel brunch and sings hymns of freedom and resilience, inspired by her own journey of discovery into her roots as a fifthgeneration descendant of enslaved people. “I’m really focused on how we individually and collectively find our energy again,” says Smith, when asked about her own aspirations for this year’s festival. “How do we, through collective experience, reenergize ourselves? How do we get inspired? How do we feel connected to each other again? How do we feel like we’re part of a larger community?” Alongside the main festival programming, Luminato will also feature podcasts and discussions with artists, performers and many others that make up the community. Edward Burtynsky will meet climate activist Aliénor (Allie) Rougeot for an intergenerational conversation about the climate crisis. Toronto-based activists also will join a panel discussion to explore questions of accountability

within police and government, captured live to reflect the situation in the world on October 14th, 2021. With its new virtual format, Luminato has also had to figure out how to build and engage a digital audience, but these new skills and capacities are bringing new opportunities. According to Smith, “We’re able to talk to people around the world. This year’s festival is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection. Now, we’re thinking about how in the future we’re going to keep that going.” She also emphasizes that the team is already planning for its return to live performances in June 2022. “It will be big and gorgeous and all over the whole Greater Toronto Region, and hopefully we’ll all be back out in the streets and parks together,” says Smith. “Like we should be.”

FACTORY THEATRE LAUNCHES 2021/22 SEASON BY JORDAN ADLER

54 | the COLLECTION


As a Filipina-Canadian theatre director and dramaturge, Nina Lee Aquino has challenged the notion of showing versions of Canada on stage that conform to a certain view of the country. As the artistic director of Toronto’s Factory Theatre for more than a decade, Aquino’s hopes for a less homogeneous cultural landscape can be seen in the productions staged under her tenure. “The definition of Canadian has opened up,” Aquino says, reflecting upon the idea that to some, Canadian stories often mean stories centered on white people. “How can you be national when we’re living in a post-national world?” “It is okay that our identity is patchwork. What’s interesting to me are the intersections, the threads that hold this really interesting quilt that we’re all wearing together.” FALL 2021 | 55


But that evolving vision of what a Canadian production looks like, and whose perspectives it examines, has met a peculiar obstacle. In a world transformed by a pandemic, who is the theatre for, and how can it be sustained if live, communal experiences contain potential health risks? Those questions have been palpable for creative arts practitioners across the world. For Aquino, though, Canadian theatre will survive long after her term as Factory’s artistic director ends in spring 2022. It just may not look or sound the same as spectators remember. The theatre’s 2021-2022 season, aptly named “SHIFT” and premiering in October, indicates some of those changes. It will begin with four digital productions. The season then plans to conclude in spring 2022 with two in-person shows staged in the Factory Mainspace in downtown Toronto. (One hopes that by April, lockdowns will have receded into memory.) “I am no longer responding to the virus,” Aquino says of the upcoming shows. “I am proposing that this could be a possibility of what a theatre season could be for the future.” The four virtual productions will be presented in a number of formats. In October, acts of faith, which Aquino directed and which stars Natasha Mumba, will open the season. In the play, Mumba plays Faith, a witty, confident 12-year-old growing up in Zambia, who is mistaken for a prophet. That show will be a filmed re-broadcast of one of Factory’s biggest hits. More than 3,200 people watched acts of faith during its 2020 premiere. Considering that audiences could view that show around the world, Aquino says this encore presentation will be presented at a variety of showtimes “Cineplex-style,” to cater to viewers in numerous time zones. The second production, co-presented with Obsidian Theatre, is Cast Iron, a live audio drama meant to replicate the form of a radio drama. Starring Alison Sealy-Smith, and set in a Winnipeg nursing home, 56 | the COLLECTION

the one-person show uses a darkly comic tone to explore serious subject matter. It will also be presented with the accompaniment of musicians and a foley artist, and will be performed and mixed live each night. Year of the Rat, the next virtual production, will bring together four revered Canadian playwrights, including Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman and Anita Majumdar. Each creator will perform their respective work from their homes. Then, You Can’t Get There from Here, Vol. 2 is what Aquino labels a “podcast play,” meaning audiences can listen to these short plays from anywhere if they download the show. The audio dramas in the


previous volume immersed listeners in a number of Toronto neighbourhoods and local landmarks, offering spectators a way to escape from the Zoom screen and explore the city without leaving home. This second volume – including original works from Marjorie Chan (Lady Sunrise), Ins Choi (Kim’s Convenience), and Kat Sandler (Mustard) – will again focus on Toronto spaces. It will be available on podcasting platforms in March 2022. Finally, the in-person productions include the world premiere of David Yee’s Among Men, directed by Aquino. Set along Ontario’s Robin Lake, the play focuses on revered Canadian poets (and good pals) Al Purdy and Milton Acorn.

The final show of the season is the Toronto début of Wildfire, an adaptation of David Paquet’s awardwinning Le Brasier. Prolific Iranian-Canadian director and actor Soheil Parsa will helm the play. Described as a “dark comedy with a spark,” the show will delve into themes of childhood trauma and resilience. To Aquino, despite the limitations of the previous year, it was not a challenge to devise a program for a virtual season. Independent artists around the country hadn’t stopped working. “It was a lot of amazing, young emerging artists trying something new with Zoom [and] different platforms,” she says. “I was happy to support whoever was doing the work.”

FALL 2021 | 57


I JUST REFUSE TO MAKE THOSE STORIES FADE AWAY... From the perspective of being stuck in lockdowns, there was not just a hunger among local creatives to keep telling stories. The tales of the pandemic — one that more severely punished the elderly, as well as certain communities of colour — connect with social injustices across the country. “I just refuse to make those stories fade away because we can’t gather physically,” Aquino says. That requires reconceiving the stage to not just feature a diversity of stories, but a diversity of audience members, including those who do not have the same access to a Factory production. Part of the appeal of these virtual shows is their accessibility. “Different kinds of barriers…are preventing our audiences from going physically to our theatres,” Aquino says. “We need to start thinking bigger, delivering stories in as many creative ways as possible.” However, there have been other adjustments and adaptations along the way. For actors in virtual productions during the past year, there was an obvious change in atmosphere: they couldn’t hear audience responses, like laughing or clapping. 58 | the COLLECTION

“I’m most proud of not giving into my doubts,” Aquino says, reflecting on the last year-and-a-half of artistic flux and distanced digital experiments. “I actually surprised myself and my team. We know a lot more than we think we do.” Aquino joined as Factory’s artistic director in 2012, becoming the first woman of colour to occupy that role in the theatre’s history. Plays by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) Canadians are now the norm at Factory Theatre, rather than the exception. Even as her time winds down as Factory’s artistic director, Aquino says her main goal is to continue delivering urgent and engaging stories to an audience. Despite the recent lockdowns in Toronto, the theatre continuing to stage shows, even from a distance, is a testament to the ongoing power of storytelling. Aquino has one piece of advice for more reticent theatregoers when it comes to a less conventional season of fresh drama: “Just try it before you knock it.”

AUTUMN FLAVOURS

Vegan cooking for the new season By Shira Blustein

I LIVE IN VANCOUVER BUT GREW UP IN CALGARY, the largest city in the Canadian prairies. Calgary was, and still is, lauded as the beef capital of Canada. As a teen in the 90s, vegetarianism was still treated as a four-letter word, and vegan was another language altogether. My mom, empathetic toward my vegetarian “condition,” adapted her recipes and taught me how to cook. Our diverse multicultural background made for interesting dishes: Persian, Indian, Iranian, Polish, and Russian (all 100% Jewish) played their respective roles in the kitchen. I always wanted to open a restaurant…a dream I’ve come to realize is shared with much of the world. My mom claims it’s in my genes, as her father was the head caterer of a synagogue in Toronto. Upon learning of my restaurant ambitions, a friend introduced me to Andreas Seppelt, a Vancouver restaurateur driven by both passion and the mantra “work hard, show the love.” Through his generous spirit, he offered endless resources and decades of experience. His vote of confidence gave me the push to open The Acorn. We opened in 2012 to a flood of people who had that same hole in their heart for an elevated plant-based experience. Central to all we do at The Acorn is our ingredients. We always source locally and use organic whenever possible. We utilize as much of a product as we can to minimize waste. We love the excitement of

working with a new ingredient, trying to find the best way to showcase it, while making sure it still complements the rest of our menu. Our dishes have many components that weave elements from the ever-so-abundant seasons we have here on the West Coast. It’s now fall when the cool autumn air hits your lungs and you can sense the end of summer. It’s a bittersweet moment for some, but for us it means one thing: mushrooms. Once the weather cools and the rains starts, wild mushrooms thrive across parts of Canada, and especially in our own Pacific Northwest rainforests. Their arrival is enough to keep us uplifted while others bear down for the cooler season ahead. Members of our team take to the forest on their days off, or we all go together on foraging education field trips. The importance of staying connected to our food is never more apparent than when respectfully picking a wild chanterelle or a cauliflower mushroom straight from the earth. Foraging connects us to our environment, giving us a deeper appreciation for the world we live in. Bear in mind, however, this isn’t a foraging guide! If you are unsure of the source or quality of your foraged ingredients, it’s safest not to use them. So, with the season in mind, we hope you enjoy this menu favourite.

Shira Blustein is founder of The Acorn, an award-winning vegan restaurant in Vancouver. Her new book, Acorn // Vegetables Reimagined, Seasonal Recipes from Root to Stem will be available this fall. FALL 2021 | 61


MUSHROOM + WAFFLE Southern Fried Maitake Mushrooms, House Gluten-Free Waffles, Mushroom Gravy, Bourbon Maple Syrup, Pickled Shallots Serves 6 | This playful, vegan, and gluten-free take on chicken and waffles is the perfect sweet and savoury dish for brunch. It’s such a hit that it has remained on our menu ever since we launched our brunch back in 2014.

BOURBON MAPLE SYRUP ½ cup bourbon ½ tsp salt 2 cups maple syrup Makes 2¼ cups | In a small pot on medium heat, simmer the bourbon until it has reduced by half. Add the salt and whisk in the maple syrup until everything is evenly blended. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one month.

62 | the COLLECTION


MUSHROOM GRAVY 20 cremini mushrooms, washed, dried, and quartered 1 medium onion, roughly chopped 1 carrot, peeled and cut in ½-inch slices 1 stalk celery, washed and cut in ½-inch slices 6 cloves garlic 1 tbsp salt 1 tsp pepper ¼ cup olive oil ½ cup tomato paste 1 cup red wine 10 sprigs thyme 1 bay leaf Note: This recipe will make more gravy than the dish calls for, but it’s a pretty versatile gravy overall, and can be frozen for up to 2 months, so you’ll be glad to have extra on hand. Makes 8 cups | Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, mix together the mushrooms, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil until all the vegetables are evenly coated. Lay the vegetables out on a roasting pan lined with parchment paper. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes. Check to make sure the vegetables are starting to caramelize, then mix in the tomato paste and continue to roast for another 10 minutes. Once the tomato paste begins to turn a deep brownish-red, remove the pan from the oven and transfer the mixture to a large pot on medium heat. Sauté, stirring often, to prevent the tomato paste from burning. When the bottom of the pot begins to get sticky, add the red wine to deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom of the pan to pick up the caramelized bits. Simmer until the red wine has reduced by half, then add 8 cups of water and the thyme and bay leaf. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 30 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half. Remove from the heat and allow to cool down slightly.

GLUTEN-FREE FLOUR BLEND 13/8 cups brown rice flour ¼ cup organic oat flour 2 tbsp psyllium husks ¼ cup tapioca starch flour ½ cup potato starch ¼ cup white rice flour Note: This blend is used for both the House Gluten-Free Waffles and the Southern Fried Maitake Mushrooms (below). You can use a store-bought gluten-free flour blend instead if you like, but this is our tried-and-true house blend. Makes 2¾ cups | Sift all the ingredients together into a bowl. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 6 months. SOUTHERN FRIED MAITAKE MUSHROOMS 2 cups soy milk 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice ¾ cup Gluten-Free Flour Blend (above) 2 tbsp smoked paprika 1 tsp chili powder 1 tsp salt + extra to taste ½ tsp pepper 1 tsp sugar 3 maitake mushrooms, quartered (see Note) 8 cups canola oil Note: Maitakes are cultivated in a clean environment so typically don’t need to be cleaned. Just check the mushrooms for any bad spots and trim them off. Makes 12 pieces | In a shallow bowl, mix together the soy milk and lemon juice and let rest for 5 minutes to curdle. In a separate bowl, mix together the Gluten-Free Flour Blend, smoked paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper, and sugar. Add the maitake mushrooms to the bowl of soy milk and lemon juice, toss to make sure they are well coated, and let marinate in the liquid until after you’ve made the waffles (then return to this part of the recipe and follow the steps below to fry them).

FALL 2021 | 63


Fry the Mushrooms | In a heavy-bottomed, high-sided pot, heat the oil to 350°F. Remove the mushrooms one by one from the marinating liquid and toss them into the bowl of seasoned flour, making sure to coat them well. Working in small batches, fry the mushrooms for two minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Using tongs, carefully remove them from the hot oil and place on paper towel to soak up any excess oil. Season with salt to taste, and serve immediately. HOUSE GLUTEN-FREE WAFFLES 1¼ cups unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp apple cider vinegar ¼ cup grapeseed oil ¼ cup maple syrup ¼ tsp vanilla extract 2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend 1½ tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt ¼ cup soda water or carbonated water Makes 6 waffles | In a large bowl, mix together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar and let sit for five minutes to curdle. Whisk in the grapeseed oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together the Gluten-Free Flour Blend, baking powder, and salt. Add the curdled milk to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Evenly whisk in the soda water and set aside. Heat a non-stick waffle iron on high heat. Spray with cooking oil, then ladle approximately ½ cup batter into the iron. Cook until crispy. Enjoy right away or keep warm in a 250°F oven until ready to serve. PLATING 6 House Gluten-Free Waffles 1 recipe Southern Fried Maitake Mushrooms 1½ cups Mushroom Gravy ¾ cup Bourbon Maple Syrup 6 tbsp Pickled Shallots Watercress, for garnish

64 | the COLLECTION

Lay out six plates and place a waffle at the centre of each. Top each waffle with two fried mushroom pieces. Ladle ¼ cup gravy off to one side of each waffle, then ladle 2 tbsp Bourbon Maple Syrup over the fried mushrooms and waffle. Top with 1 tbsp pickled shallots and garnish with watercress.
