A unique play opening soon at Evergreen Brick Works offers guests a chance to experience some of Toronto’s most significant history first-hand. ‘Memory in the Mud’ will transport audiences to Toronto’s past, as it leads guests on a tour of Evergreen Brick Works, formerly Don Valley Brick Works, while reenacting life there during Toronto’s early days. The play will bring Don Valley Brick Works back to life, telling the stories of people who lived and worked at the quarry before it was filled in and landscaped for public use. For almost 100 years, bricks made from the quarry’s clay and shale-rich mud built many of Toronto’s most-well-known buildings, including Casa Loma and Queen’s Park. Suitable for all ages, the interactive production aims to connect Torontonians to their past, highlighting the challenges and hardships faced by the people who helped build their city. The roving theatre performance explores the lives of those who founded and worked at the site, including German

prisoners-of-war forced to toil there during internment, and the many homeless men who slept there during the Great Depression, taking advantage of the warmth radiated by its brick-baking furnaces. Along with personal stories, the play, presented in partnership with Words in Motion, also showcases the importance of the quarry and the work done there. Making its debut in 2011, the show, which earned critical acclaim, will feature more original, historic architecture this time around. “We are delighted to once again present these spellbinding stories to the public, and to make visitors to Evergreen Brick Works more aware of these great but little-known Canadians,” >>>Event, page 8

Women rebuild lives at local inn LISA QUEEN lqueen@insidetoronto.com Fifteen months ago, struggling with mental illness and on the verge of becoming homeless, Jane Smith was making plans to kill herself. Fortunately, she visited her doctor, who had treated her for worsening depression for

years, and heeded the physician’s advice to go to a hospital emergency room. At the hospital, Smith, not her real name, was properly diagnosed with bipolar disorder and prescribed medication. While there, the 45-year-old woman also learned about St. Clare Inn, a home in a residential neighbourhood in East York

that helps homeless women with mental health challenges rebuild their lives. The home proved to be lifesaving for Smith, who stayed there for a year and is now living in a midtown apartment. “They have a special place in my heart,” she said, wiping away tears. >>>linda’s, page 8

Swimmers enjoy the water at Donald D. Summerville Pool. The landmark facility officially re-opened for the season Friday after the conclusion of major reconstruction that had been delayed by bad weather conditions.

Pool opening a big splash with swimmers REBECCA FIELD rfield@insidetoronto.com

in brief

The pool with a view is finally back as the Donald D. Summerville pool opened Friday. The pool had a delayed opening this summer due to extensive ongoing construction to rehabilitate the building, which is more than 50 years old. “It’s nothing sexy,” said Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon on opening day. “It’s all work that’s needed to be done for quite a while.” The construction, which was led by Toronto Parks, Forestry, and Recreation, included finishing a concrete deck around the pools, which

is temperature sensitive and faced delays due to the rough weather Toronto has been experiencing. “People are thrilled it’s open and people were upset especially given the heat and the kind of global warming summer we’ve had,” McMahon said. The repairs are set to continue in the fall, but the pool will stay open an extra week until Sunday, Sept. 8 because of the delays caused. The pool had a slow start today with only a few swimmers, but those there opted to take on the high dive into the cold water. “It feels good; you know, it’s nice, the water’s cold,” said Andrew McGrady from

Scarborough. He came to the pool with his mom and was happy to find it had finally opened. “I come to the pool every year.” Scarborough resident Gary Lochhead was also at opening day. “My son’s never been down. I went off the (High Dive) Platform, but he’s too scared,” said. “My great aunt used to live over here on Lee Avenue. I used to come down here when I was younger. It’s a great facility.”

ith Toronto Public Health now reporting it has found mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus within the city limits, residents must take the threat seriously and protect themselves and those they love. Public health monitors 43 mosquito traps across the city, and would not say the exact location where the infected insects were found. Instead, Elaine Pacheco, healthy environments manager with public health, said all Torontonians need to take precautions. While West Nile is not usually fatal in humans, it can be. There have been hundreds of cases reported over the years, and some people have died in our city from the virus. It could happen our view again. For most people exposed to the virus, though, the symptoms don’t Basic even show. For about one in five precautions people, symptoms can include fever, body aches, nausea, vomitadvised ing and headaches. Less than one per cent of people infected require hospitalization, Pacheco said. Last year, Toronto Public Health said 94 people were diagnosed with West Nile virus in the city and there were 100 infected mosquito pools discovered through testing. Residents need to remember there is a chance they could be exposed to an infected mosquito. But by taking some basic precautionary steps, they can be protected. People can reduce their risk by wearing lightcoloured long-sleeved shirts, pants, socks and a hat while outdoors. Mosquitoes are especially active at dusk and dawn, and at those times extra precautions, including the use of insect repellent, are advised. Residents can also lessen the chance of mosquito breeding by making sure the habitats that support them are dealt with. In particular, make sure standing water such as bird feeders, plant pots and the like are either emptied or refilled with fresh water. Mosquitoes love to breed in such environments. Protecting our indoor living space by making sure screens on windows and doors do not have holes is also important. While Torontonians should not live in fear of mosquitoes, we should look after ourselves and continue to make the rest of the summer healthy and happy.

Preserving East York’s wild side at Todmorden

W

hile the summer has been unseasonably hot and wet this year, it’s been wonderful for trees and plants. I’m amazed at how lush and green it has been this year and the local flower gardens have been full of colour. While it is a delight to see how the green thumb of many people have made East York a delight to the eye and senses, there is good offering available from Mother Nature herself. The best place to see that is the Todmorden Mills Wildflower Preserve, located in our community’s backyard in the Don Valley. The preserve is a unique site, being made up of nine hectares (2.5 acres) of the remains of the original Don River and adjacent forest. It is hard to believe today, but the original valley was filled with old growth pine, oak trees and elm trees, with wolves and

joe cooper watchdog

bears living amongst them. What was also an important part of the forest was a blanket of wild flowers that bloomed from the spring into the autumn. As the European population grew, a saw mill was built and the forest was cut down in order to build the settlements that were growing. The location became the site of a brewery and flower mill, and represented the beginnings of industrialization in what was to become Ontario. In 1991, Charles Sauriol, the man who saved Todmorden Mills from demolition and promoted the environmental conservation of the Don Valley, initiated the establishment of the wildflower preserve. He was assisted by Dave

Money, past president of the Ontario Horticulture Association, and a number of local volunteers. The site has a well marked and maintained half-kilometere path that takes you through the preserve, past the oxbow that is the remains of the old Don River. What you will see are a group of small ponds and marsh that are the remnants of the river, plus literally hundreds of species of native plants. In addition, there are also a wide variety of birds and animals to be seen as well, with some that you would never see in your backyard. Along with the maintenance of the trail and preservation of native species of plants, there is also an effort being made to reduce invasive non-native plants. One of the worst problems being faced is the large amount of human

generated garbage that comes in due to either illegal dumping or the debris that comes from the Don Valley Parkway. The on-going work of maintaining the site is the responsibility of the Todmorden Mills Wildflower Preserve Committee (TMWPC). It is a charitable organization run by a volunteer board with about 50 members, and the public is welcome to join for free. People are welcome to simply enjoy the preserve by walking through it, or there are a number of events organized by the TMWPC that you can participate in. If you wish to participate you may pick up a brochure at Todmorden Mills during operating hours. Joe Cooper is a long-time East York resident and community activist. His column appears every Thursday. Contact him at eym@insidetoronto.com

Linda’s Walk supports St. Clare Inn

the spot to shop

>>>from page 1 “They were really good to me. Really supportive and caring and you could feel it came from the heart as well. It wasn’t just a job. They gave me strength when I didn’t have the strength inside myself.” On Aug. 10, Smith will take part in Linda’s Walk, a fivekilometre walk through Don Mills to raise money for St. Clare Inn. The walk started in 2010 in honour of Linda Houston, a 48-year-old homeless woman found dead in front of a North York gas station in 1997, just a day before then-mayor Mel Lastman boasted North York had no homeless people. Suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, Houston had lived in a bus shelter and on a park bench at Leslie Street and Lawrence Avenue. Some in the community found Houston’s presence in the park distasteful and arranged to have the bench removed. But others struck up relationships with her, including many of the children of St. Bonaventure Catholic School and parishioners of the neighbouring Franciscan Church of St. Bonaventure, operated by the Franciscan Friars and secular Franciscans. In 2007, the friars and lay people created St. Clare Inn in response to Houston’s death. Open to all regardless of

religion, the inn provides transitional housing for homeless women with mental health challenges between the ages of 30 and 60, those most likely to fall through the holes of the social service safety net, said Executive Director Friar Tom Purcell, who assumed the role after Houston’s death. The two-storey home with finished basement provides housing for up to five women who can stay for a year. Residents, who volunteer in the community four hours a week, work with case workers, psychiatrist, doctors and other professionals to rebuild their lives. “It (the inn) is about helping them believe in themselves again,” said Purcell, adding it costs $200,000 a year to operate the home, with all funding coming from donations. “The women are never not going to be challenged with mental illness. That is part of their lives, but they can manage it and reclaim their lives.” Furnished with donations, the homey inn features a living room and kitchen on the main floor, a second living room and craft room in the basement and a welcoming backyard garden. Every day, the residents gather for dinner, with the women rotating the cooking and cleaning. Forty-eight women have lived at the inn since it opened, with 70 per cent

going on to live independently or semi-independently, Purcell said. Thirty per cent have left during their stay, including five who were asked to leave for various reasons such as violence or not following their healing plan, he said. And healing is what St. Clare Inn is all about, Purcell said. “We are all on a healing journey. We’re all broken in one way or another. It’s a way of helping them (the residents) rebuild their lives, which for one reason or another, have been broken down,” he said. Smith said St. Clare Inn put her on the road to recovery, providing care and support while she was there and teaching her how to build a support team in the community when she left. Smith, who until 2011 worked in a high-stress job, is now searching out volunteer opportunities and plans to work in the future when she is able. She has also reconnected with her estranged family. “If I ever need (St. Clare Inn), I know I can call them or reach out to them. That makes me feel good in my heart,” she said. “It’s a very special place. It helps a lot of women.”

TTC eyeing GO rail corridors TTC votes not to integrate

T

he TTC will study using existing GO rail corridors for a proposed subway route. A motion approved by the TTC board asks staff to collaborate with provincial transit planning body Metrolinx on examining the suitability of running a future Downtown Relief Line (DRL) along the Georgetown and Lakeshore East tracks. Metrolinx has placed the construction of a relief line as a priority for its Big Move transit network, and has pledged to build the DRL within 15 years if the project is funded.

with bike sharing program BIXI still owes city $3.9 million

RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com For now at least, the TTC will not rescue the BIXI Toronto bike share service from a crippling debt load. A vote taken during the transit commission’s monthly board meeting recently does open the door slightly for the TTC to reconsider its involvement with BIXI, but only if a restructuring plan to be presented to the city’s executive committee in October falls through. By a majority vote, the TTC board opted to support staff recommendations strongly cautioning against integrating BIXI’s operations with the TTC mainly due to financial concerns that include the bike share’s $4.8-million city-issued loan, of which it still owes $3.9

million. But by agreeing to support civilian board member Alan Heisey’s motion to reconsider helping BIXI in the future, the TTC is signaling it wants to see the bike share program prosper, said chair Karen Stintz. “We’re not the most strategic partner for BIXI and we wanted to say to the executive we support finding a resolution that works, but we also don’t want to see the program die,” said Stintz. “We will find a way to make BIXI work because it’s the view of the commission the program is important, but we understand we’re not in the best position to manage it.” A staff report prepared for the meeting notes Montreal, Chicago and London, U.K., have devoted money to their own bike share programs and recommends Toronto council do the same for BIXI. “There is no business case to support the TTC taking on

additional expenses to support a non-transit initiative,” said the report. Despite enjoying initial success when it launched in 2011, BIXI, which is operated by Montreal-based Public Bike System Company, has not been able to expand beyond 80 stations, 1,000 bikes and 1,500 docking points or drop-off locations. None of the locations are outside the downtown core, which has limited revenue opportunities. Cycling Toronto president Jared Kolb, who would like BIXI to expand to at least 3,000 bike stations, said he was disappointed with the board’s decision, but confident a long-term solution will be found. “This story is far from over,” he said last Wednesday evening.

Councillor to propose naming playground after children’s entertainers JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com

A new plan by St. Paul’s Councillor Josh Matlow could see the children’s playground in June Rowlands Park named after Sharon, Lois & Bram. The playground naming would be fitting given the contributions the trio – all of whom live in Matlow’s ward – have made to both children’s entertainment and to Canadian culture on the whole since they formed in 1978. “Sharon, Lois & Bram are iconic performers who have meant so much to the lives of Canadian children and children around the world,” Matlow said. “When I found out that Bram lived right around June Rowlands Park and the other two were in the ward as well, it just made sense.” The playground at June Rowlands Park has never been named. Should it be named in honour of Sharon, Lois & Bram, Matlow said he hopes to have an elephant-shaped sign in recognition of the trio’s first album, One Elephant, Deux Elephants and their television program The Elephant Show. “Most of us in our 20s and 30s grew up with Sharon, Lois & Bram and they have a special place in our hearts,” Matlow said. “You see parks named after politicians, but we need to be celebrating our artists as well.” Bram Morrison said the trio was honoured to be considered and hopes to see Matlow’s plan become a reality. “We’ve been honoured in different ways over the years with Juno Awards, gold and platinum records and the Order of Canada, but this is really grassroots and really fitting,” he said. He noted Sharon, Lois & Bram

Children’s entertainers Sharon, Lois and Bram may have a midtown Toronto playground named after them.

became such a cultural touchstone because they aimed to create more than simple ditties for kids. “We felt we were making music for the whole family, which meant we weren’t going to do the very, very simple, pared-down synthesizer arrangements you hear so much on children’s records,” he said. “We worked with different kinds of music and our songs ranged from one voice singing to all three of us doing a three-part harmony.” Sharon Hampson echoed Morrison’s sentiments regarding the playground naming, pointing out it was an honour both unexpected and appropriate given the trio’s legacy. She noted she drove her grandchildren past the playground to tell them the news and said though they are too old to fully enjoy using the play area, “I’ll find someone to take.” She added that, should the playground naming go ahead as expected, the trio could even take the stage to dedicate it.

“It’s all unfolding in delightful, unexpected ways,” she said. “If there’s a ceremony, it would be hard for us not to get up and sing a couple of songs.” That alone would be a treat for children and parents who grew up with Sharon, Lois & Bram’s music, particularly given that Lois Lilienstein no longer tours with the other two. “We still sing together but what we do now is concerts for causes,” Lilienstein said, adding the naming of the park would provide the trio with a great reason to take the stage. “Our harmony might be a bit rusty, but we can still turn it out,” she said. In order for the name to become official, the councillor’s proposal will have to be passed at council. It is set to go before Toronto and East York Community Council Sept. 10.

Soknacki ponders mayoral run The electoral battleground that was formerly known as Scarborough could become very interesting in 2014. Scratch that. It’s already interesting, now that Mayor Rob Ford has managed to gather enough votes to support building subway tunnels east and north from Kennedy Station – a move that at once degrades the reach of rapid transit in Scarborough and feeds the local appetite for heavy-duty infrastructure improvements. Scarborough voters’ good will on this matter could well send Ford’s damaged mayoralty into a second term, scandals be damned. What it’s on the verge of becoming is titanically interesting. David Soknacki, a former budget chief under former mayor David Miller and a former councillor from Scarborough’s east end, is considering adding his name to the growing list of high-profile candidates for the next mayor of Toronto. Of all of them – Karen Stintz, John Tory, Olivia Chow – he’s got the lowest profile. Since

david nickle the city stepping away from council in 2006, Soknacki’s been spending his time heading up Parc Downsview Park, writing a column in this newspaper and tending his spice manufacturing and exporting business, Ecom Food Industries. But should Soknacki choose to run, Ford will be in for a fight, at least in Scarborough. Soknacki and Ford have certain similarities. Both are business owners, both are Progressive Conservatives, and both came to council with ideas to reform the place. Both have ideas about transit in Scarborough. But while both agree it needs to be improved, beyond that their divergence could not be more pronounced. Ford, in case anyone missed it, is a subway man. Soknacki has been a consistent supporter of light rail. Ford is working on ways to pay for the subway. Soknacki is sup-

porting a plan that is already financed by the provincial government. So if it goes ahead, there will be a spectacle of two candidates: both wealthy and Conservative; one from Etobicoke who shows his love for Scarborough with the promise of a subway; another who shows his love for Scarborough by living there, and promising the old light rail plan. Toronto is of course larger than Scarborough. But if Ford wants to win a second term, he can’t afford to lose what amounts to nearly a third of the entire city. Facing Olivia Chow or Karen Stintz or even John Tory, Ford’s support in Scarborough is strong. Facing an opponent with hometown bona fides and a strong argument against the chimeric promise of an unfunded subway line, the mayor could be in real trouble.
