WoodGreen in need of volunteers for Meals on Wheels

BOUNCY CASTLE FUN AT CHESTER SCHOOL

JOANNA LAVOIE jlavoie@insidetoronto.com

Events listings / 5

WoodGreen (WG) Community Services has put out an urgent call for volunteers to help deliver nutritious meals to east end residents through its Meals on Wheels program. A community staple since 1967, the program currently serves upwards of 55,000 meals annually to more than 600 clients in an area bounded by the Don River to the west, Victoria Park Avenue to the east, Lake Ontario to the south and just north of Danforth Avenue. Because of the tough and seemingly unending winter, WoodGreen has seen an influx of new client referrals and as a result is in desperate need of at least 10 more people to join its team of 65 dedicated volunteer drivers and food runners.

Pape Village Summerfest this Saturday The Pape Village BIA hosts its annual Summerfest and Sidewalk Sale this Saturday. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and takes place in Pape

Village, along Pape Avenue between Mortimer Avenue and Gamble Avenue. Saturday’s event will feature live entertainment perfor-

mances, a wide variety of food, inflatables and face painting for the kids, and live skateboard demonstrations. Pape will be closed to vehicu-

lar traffic between Floyd and Cosburn for the event. For more information on Summerfest, please go to www. papevillage.com

“Our typical route is 12 to 14 stops but recently because of the volume of clients our volunteers have been taking on up to 18 stops,” said Colleen Peacock, WoodGreen’s manager of food and security check programs. It’s imperative the organization increases its volunteer roster as drivers/runners only have a two-hour window to deliver meals to clients due to Toronto Public Health regula>>>FULFILLING, page 2

Fulfilling experience for volunteers SALE ENDS JUNE 24TH

>>>from page 1 tions, she said. “It’s a little bit frenzied around here.” Twelve-year volunteer Ross Wight said helping WG Meals on Wheels gets him out of the house for a great cause. “You’re giving back to the community you’ve lived and worked in all your life,” he shared one morning before embarking on his Meals on Wheels delivery route. Polly McLeod, who has volunteered with Meals on Wheels for a year, said it’s been a fulfilling experience. “It feels great and the team at WoodGreen is great to work with,” she said. “Rain or shine we offer an essential service to keep people in the community.” Wo o d G re e n re c e n t l y invited The Mirror to take part in a ride-along, which began at the east-end social service organization’s office at 815 Danforth Avenue at Jones Avenue. Energetic volunteers began to gather at the meeting point shortly before 11 a.m.

Coolers filled with tasty hot meals, prepared at nearby Bridgepoint Active Healthcare hospital, arrived a short time later and in no time the twomember volunteer teams were on their way. “People who do this have the biggest hearts. I’ve met some amazing people in this job,” said Peacock, who has recently been helping deliver meals as there aren’t enough volunteers to get the job done. She said having a healthy meal delivered to their home is the reason many Riverside, Leslieville and Beach residents, like 87-year-old Phyllis Cleghorn, are able to continue living independently. A client for about 12 years now, the retired nurse started making use of the meal delivery program when she had surgery and wasn’t able to prepare food for herself. She continues to use Meals on Wheels because it’s convenient. “I really can’t cook anymore. I would be living on sandwiches, really,” said the

longtime Leslieville area resident. “It would be an awful lot harder for me without Meals on Wheels.” Aside from a hot, healthy meal, Cleghorn said she also enjoys her daily visit from the Meals on Wheels volunteers. “I would miss them. It’s somebody to check in on you,” said Cleghorn, who receives Meals on Wheels five days a week and eats out on weekends. “Lots of people rely on Meals on Wheels. It’s a healthy option for people who can’t cook.” For just $5.75, WoodGreen Meals on Wheels clients receive a hot, healthy meal accompanied by a friendly hello from a caring volunteer. The organization also offers its clients a frozen meal program. Subsidies are available for low-income individuals. Anyone able to volunteer please contact Joanne Fong at jfong@woodgreen.org or call 416-645-6000 ext. 1109.

Candidates share their views at debate JOANNA LAVOIE jlavoie@insidetoronto.com Upwards of 170 people filled the pews of St. John’s Norway Anglican Church Monday evening to take part in a spirited all-candidates debate for those vying to represent Beaches-East York at Queen’s Park. The debate welcomed Green Party candidate Debra Scott, Conservative Nicolas Johnson, Liberal Arthur Potts and NDP incumbent Michael Prue. Journalist Rob Granatstein was the evening’s moderator. In typical fashion, the event began with each candidate sharing a few words about who they are and their vision for the riding and the province. A question-and-answer period ensued where candidates were asked to give their views on a range of topics including healthcare, education, affordable electricity, jobs and taxation. Community members, who were invited to submit questions for the candidates, were very interested in knowing where their future provincial representatives stood on public transit, specifically how their party would pay for it. Potts said the Liberals would repurpose portions of the HST and gas tax. “The area around Main and Danforth is a great place to get started with the rapid transit line,” he told those in

attendance, adding selling off assets like shares of General Motors to pay for capital expenditures is an option. Johnson, who faced a tough crowd throughout the evening, spoke about uploading GO Transit and the management of major highways to a provincial body; which he called “a real integrated network”. Johnson said public transit can be improved without raising taxes, adding it doesn’t make sense to rack up even more debt to build new projects. Scott said her party is in favour of the paid expansion of public transit through “thoughtful congestion charges, gas taxes and road tolls” while Prue said it’s not a good idea to just shift money from one place to another to fund public transit. He also said selling off public assets is not the right approach.

“Raising corporate taxes is the first solution. We need to make sure corporations are paying because they’re the ultimate beneficiaries,” said Prue. Voters also wanted to know each candidate’s take on privatizing the TTC as well as public-private partnerships. Johnson said the Conservatives believe in the highest level of service, regardless of the provider, while Prue spoke out against privatization pointing to recent fiascos with Ornge air ambulance, the $1.1 billion cancellation of two gas-fired power plants and eHealth Ontario among others. Potts said this is one rare instance he agrees with Prue. “(The TTC) needs to stay in public hands,” he said, adding in some cases public-private partnerships can be success-

ful like at Bridgepoint Active Healthcare. Childcare was another topic discussed at the debate that is of great interest to the many young families that call Beaches-East York home. Prue said he’ll always support safe childcare and feels every child deserves regulated child care. He said he’d like to see an affordable childcare system like the one already in place in Quebec come to our province. The father of two adult daughters, Potts said the Liberals have a safe childcare bill in the works, which died when the budget died and the election was called. He said he’d work to resurrect that bill. Johnson was quick to ask how regulated daycares would be paid for and said his party is the only one with the answer to that question, while Scott said her party is all for childcare regulations. ANOTHER ISSUE Another issue raised that directly impacts the riding is development pressure and the role of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). “If there’s ever a board that shouldn’t be there this is the one,” Prue said, adding while some Ontario communities could benefit from the agency others, like Toronto, have no use for it and can handle planning issues on their own. Scott, who said she also feels the OMB should be dis-

solved, said developers with deep pockets shouldn’t have the right to make decisions about the future of communities. She went on to say that many voters she’s spoken with in Beaches-East York are actually pro-development but that constant variances are not wanted. Johnson asked those in attendance if the OMB is the real issue or if it’s an overall planning process problem. “Are we putting blame in the right place or is it a red herring?” Potts, who on a number of occasions throughout the debate spoke about his ownership of a Yorkville bar, said development is one of the most contentious issues in the riding and throughout Toronto. He said he feels it’s important the city’s planning department be given more time to consider development applications instead of just waiting for time to run out so they can head to the OMB. In conclusion, Scott encouraged voters in Beaches-East York to vote with their conscience and to choose the candidate that best represents them. “On June 12, I hope you vote for the future you want,” she said. Prue, who said he’s hoping to return to Queen’s Park for a fifth term, said he’s been working to do his very best to speak on constituents’ behalf.

Prom Project 911 helps out local students JOANNA LAVOIE jlavoie@insidetoronto.com Thanks to a new 55 Division initiative, more than 100 teenage girls from the city’s east end won’t have to worry about the prohibitive cost of purchasing a new prom or graduation dress. Prom Project 911 came to be just over a week ago after Const. Rob McDonald, the local police division’s crime prevention/social media officer, encountered a couple of high school students on Danforth Avenue.

One teen was shopping for her prom dress, while her friend mentioned she might not be able to go to her prom because she didn’t have the money to buy a dress. “No one should miss out on such a special occasion because they don’t have enough money,” said McDonald, who was so moved by the exchange that he put out calls on Twitter and Facebook for fancy dress donations. “It started out with a social media idea and (people) really put their effort behind their

fingers,” he said. In less than a week dozens of people reached out to help, donating in excess of 100 party dresses. Gary Levy, the co-host of Big Brother Canada, also got word of the effort and volunteered his time to help the young women select their perfect dress. “I think every girl deserves a wonderful prom and to feel wonderful on their prom night. ... I’m happy to be a part of this; to give my fashion expertise and fabulousness,” said Levy, who is also offering

one lucky young lady a free make-up application. “I heard about this cause and I really wanted to be involved any way I could.” This past Monday evening, a stream of teenage girls and their moms and friends filtered into the Toronto Beaches Lions Clubhouse at Ashbridges Bay to check out 120 or so party dresses of all styles, colours and sizes. The young women could also pick up a pair of shoes or jewelry to accompany their dress. Gina Edmonds Beauty

Supply Outlet has also generously donated two free hair appointments for two teens, while Value Village at Danforth and Woodbine avenues loaned 55 Division clothing racks to hang and display the dresses. The Toronto Beaches Lions Club also donated their space for cause. A second Prom Project 911 event will be held Monday, June 9 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at The Ten Spot, 1402 Queen St. E.

Thorncliffe Park, Fraser Mustard schools set to host fun fair The summer sun is a great excuse to enjoy the outdoors. That is why the Thorncliffe Park Public School and its new sibling school, Fraser Mustard Early Learning Academy, will be organizing a fun fair this Saturday. The fair goes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with loads of activities planned throughout the day. There will be a cultural bazaar with more than 50 booths, jumping castles, a magic show, a reptile show, a MAD science show and a juggling show. The students from both schools are also excited to show off their talents with an art gallery and science fair display for their community to see. The fair will take place in both school gymnasiums and their common play area. Thorncliffe Park P.S. and the Fraser Mustard academy are at 80 Thorncliffe Park Dr. Valley art fence project wDon

Internationally acclaimed artist/architect Paul Raff has been selected to design and produce an integrated art piece for a 1.6-kilometre stretch of fence in the lower Don Valley. Raff was selected for the project by a panel of Torontobased urbanists. His previous work includes the permanent public art piece for Underpass Park. Located under and around the Eastern Avenue, Richmond and Adelaide overpasses, it is the most extensive park to ever be built under an overpass in Canada, and the first ever in Toronto. “Raff’s abilities as an artist, to develop concepts that are both integrated and capture the imagination, will create a dynamic new and artistic element,” stated Ward 30 Toronto-Danforth Councillor Paula Fletcher in a press release. The design for Raff’s latest piece is expected to complete this summer. Construction should get underway in the fall. This improved trail is set to be part of the Pan Am Path, a legacy project for the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.

T

his Friday, June 6, marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day, when thousands of Canadian soldiers and Allied forces led a successful invasion of France off the beaches of Normandy during the Second World War. It’s an event that’s earned a honourable place in our history books and put us forever in the debt of the brave soldiers who risked their lives for such a critical mission, that would ultimately turn the tide and end the war. Canada’s role was a major one but it did not go without sacrifice, as Canadians suffered more than 1,000 casualties, including 359 killed. As we honour and remember those who served - sadly, a lifetime ago for most those soldiers – let’s extend our view of our commemoration on this special day to also consider other impacts of military service. June 6th For instance, take time to think is 70th of the families who did, and conto, watch their loved ones anniversary tinue head off to war. At Toronto City Hall tomorrow, of D-Day a special event is taking place in Nathan Phillips Square to mark the anniversary of D-Day and one of the speakers is Joanne O’Halloran, whose father Edward served during the Second World War and was at the Normandy invasion. She’ll be sharing her experience as a soldier’s child. It’s a perspective we don’t hear often, but one that needs to be heard, as well as that of partners, mothers and fathers. Show our support

Soldiers and veterans need our support, but their families do too. Something else that should be incorporated into the tradition of military commemoration, is increasing support for the mental health needs of soldiers when they return home. Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be a relatively new term, but it’s not a new illness and its designation comes too late for generations of soldiers and families who suffered without help. We have a responsibility to look after the people who fight for us, so let’s support them wholly during Friday’s service and after as well.

Some thoughts on the provincial election

T

he provincial election is now upon us and it is almost anticlimatic. The issues that have been at the focus of many controversies have pushed different groups of people into thinking long and hard about this current government. There are certainly many people who are happy with what is taking place in this province and consider the changes to be good. Still, there are an equal number (and we are waiting to see if it may well be more) who are not happy with the way the province is being currently run. No matter what the final outcomes of the debates, the bottom line is that on June 12 it will be what takes place in the voting booth that will make all of the difference when the citizens of the province make the final decision. However, like many things in this province, the

way in which we participate in this voting process has been changed significantly by the current government. When we go to vote it will be a very different political landscape than the one we voted in during the last provincial election. Power has shifted in Canada from its traditional centre in Ontario to other parts of the country, particularly the west. power Energy has become the new source of that power, rather than the turning of raw materials into manufactured goods. Former factories in Ontario are now either shut down or being re-purposed into condominiums or office space. The bottom line is that the old certainties that once drove elections has been removed and we’re now facing ever increasing uncertainties.

joe cooper watchdog This makes for a highly polarized and combative political arena that has done more to alienate voters than encourage them to participate in the democratic process. A further change that has taken place that has helped hinder voter turn-out has been the removal of the process of voter enumeration prior to the election. Rather than ensuring that everyone whom can vote is on the voter list, it is now primarily up to individual citizens to ensure that they are registered. Certainly there will be some enumeration in special cases. Still, the only way that you will know for certain is if you receive your notice of registration card in the mail. Given the important

issues that are facing the province in the up-coming election, it is important for each qualified person to ensure that they are on that list. This can be done in many ways, starting with using the information provided by the newspaper ads sponsored by Elections Ontario. If you have missed those, check in the phone book in the government ‘blue pages’ section, and under Ontario government, and see ‘Elections Ontario’ for their current number. No matter what your political views or opinions, none of these will matter much unless you back them up with your vote. Take the time to do so, even if it is only to be able to say later ‘well I didn’t vote for them’. Joe Cooper is a long-time East York resident and community activist.

Rally in the Alley set for this Sunday For the third year, Little India-area residents are set to take back their local laneway. This year’s Rally in the Alley, which was created to help keep neighbours updated on pop-up events designed to reclaim the underutilized space in the laneways and alleys north of Gerrard Street East from Greenwood to Ashdale avenues, will take place this Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. The community potluck and barbecue will be held in the laneway just north of Gerrard Street East between Greenwood and Ashdale avenues. Visit http://goo.gl/cU8Ig5 sought for Gerrard mural wArtists

The Gerrard India Bazaar is looking for artists or art groups to paint a new mural on Gerrard Street East.

The Business Improvement Area (BIA) recently received a grant from the City of Toronto for a mural project on the east side of a building at 1455 Gerrard St E. The mural will be about 66 feet by 13 feet tall and aims to reflect the culture and traditions of the Indian subcontinent. Artists, who should avoid any designs with direct depiction/presentation of gods/goddesses or any other political or religious views, are invited to submit up to four detailed sketches/renditions as well as details about the timeline, media, colours, durability/longevity and maintenance of the mural, by July 25, to Subbu Chintaluri, Gerrard India Bazaar BIA manager, 1426 Gerrard St. E.

Ford’s rehab helping city’s voters focus on campaign

I

t was not so very long ago that Mayor Rob Ford longed to be anywhere but in the bosom of his constituents — at least when it came to the observation of Canada Day July 1. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, our mayor would make a bee-line for his family’s cottage rather than wave a flag in Toronto and coincidentally march in the Pride Parade. Not so in 2014. In an interview from the facility where he is undergoing therapy for alcohol addiction, Mayor Ford declared this week he’ll be back in Toronto for July 1. At that point, he’ll attend Canada Day celebrations and take his re-election campaign out of the holding pattern it’s been in since April 30. He told The Toronto Sun he’s a changed man, and is ready to make some amends for all the wrong he’s done us. And of course he wants to run for another term as mayor of the biggest city in Canada.

david nickle the city When that happens, I suppose we’ll all have to contend with him. In the meantime, Toronto has another month, nearly, to appreciate our own bout of rehab. time Think about it: for just over a month, we’ve been able to spend most of our time doing what people ought to during an election: considering what sort of city we’d like to be in, and worrying over the management of the one we’ve got. Even when the talk’s gotten rough among mayoral candidates, it’s been measured and thoughtful and respectful. matters That’s been the case in matters of governance, too.

To drum up excitement for its new streetcar fleet, the TTC is organizing a public ride on one of the new vehicles next week. Riders must correctly answer a steetcar-related trivia question (sample question: how many streetcar routes does the TTC have? answer: 11) to get a seat on the ride, scheduled for Wednesday, June 11. Questions are posted via the twitter account @ StreetcarTO and the first person to respond correctly wins. Meanwhile, one of the new Bombardier streetcars recently arrived in Toronto. A media ride on the new vehicle is set for this week. The new fleet will begin service on the 510 Spadina line on Aug. 31. averts strike of GO bus operators wDeal

When Rob Ford returns to his titular post as mayor, there will be just two more council meetings before the municipal election campaign starts in earnest. The serious campaigns — which is to say, the ones that didn’t take a break to dry out in cottage country — will be organized, and funded, and by summer’s end consolidating their presence and support, their platforms mostly unveiled. The electorate, having been schooled in such for the past few months, will be ready for a serious civic talk.

The Mirror questions candidates in BEACHES-EAST YORK

Visit us on the web for more byelection coverage, including the June 12 results. Go to www. insidetoronto.com

BEACHES-EAST YORK IS a dynamic downtown east riding bounded by Sunrise Avenue and the Don River to the north, Victoria Park Avenue to the east, Coxwell Avenue to the west and Lake Ontario to the south. Beaches-East York is home to the Beach, Upper Beach, Beach Triangle, East Danforth, Crescent Town, Woodbine Heights, Main Square, Topham Park and Parkview Hills. The provincial electoral district encompasses municipal wards 32 and 31 (Beaches-East York). NDP MPP Michael Prue, who is seeking re-election for a fifth term, has represented the riding at Queen’s Park since 2001. The Liberal Party candidate is Arthur Potts, Nicolas Johnson is the Conservative challenger, while Debra Scott is running for the Greens.

Tell us about one local issue that you plan to champion as MPP

2

What will you do to improve transit for your constituents?

■ The high cost of housing is squeezing budgets – especially for single parents and seniors. One of the biggest costs related to housing is soaring electricity rates, and making prices more affordable is near the top of our list. This all connects back to our biggest priority: increasing jobs and lowering the cost of living. Housing – and everything else – becomes a lot more affordable when you have a good, steady, rewarding job.

■ I spent most of my career in Paris and Tokyo as a financial journalist with Bloomberg News, and in Toronto with The Globe and Mail. People trust me to stand up and ask the tough questions, to listen and to represent the facts with fairness and balance. My first job out of university was with a non-profit environmental organization, and that showed me the importance of cooperation between government, business and local community groups.

■ There is so much to do in Beaches-East York that narrowing the list to one project is impossible. I will access the Liberal budget’s $130 billion infrastructure fund to ensure BeachesEast York receives it’s fair share to re-develop the Kingston Road YMCA. I’ll also commit to ensure the funds flow quickly for the Toronto East General Hospital’s much-needed addition.

■ An immediate priority I will work to champion is to streamline connectivity of TTC, GO and VIA Rail at Main and Danforth by integrating fares, building a tunnel between the stations, bringing surface bus routes into the GO station and doubling GO service to the downtown and back. This will relieve congestion on the Danforth and Yonge lines, and kick-start the reredevelopment of the area as a significant transportation hub for Toronto.

■ I will work to ensure that area gets its share of funding for upgrades and refurbishments where needed most. The Investment in Affordable Housing (IAH) program will see Ontario commit $80.1 million annually over the next five years. The IAH program enhances access and affordable rental housing, assistance for down payments and help to improve infrastructure. We’ve also committed $42 million of annual funding for a total $294 million to the Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative.

■ I have a BA in political science, a masters in industrial relations and have worked at Toronto City Hall. I co-founded a waste wood recovery business that continues to employ more than 30 employees, and have spent the past 25 years as a self-employed consultant solving problems for individuals, small businesses and corporations. My work has kept me involved with Queen’s Park where I helped bring in the Deposit/Return system for LCBO.

■ The removal of Toronto from the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) is an important issue in this community. The character of neighbourhoods in the Glen Davis Ravine area and on Queen Street has been threatened. I believe it’s time municipalities made their own decisions as they do in every other province in Canada. It was a shame Liberals and Conservatives recently blocked the passage of Bill 20, a Bill that would have exempted Toronto from the OMB.

■ We are focused on prioritizing the Downtown Relief Line, improving Scarborough transit and adding clean trains to travel from Union Station to Pearson airport. To do this, we will create a dedicated fund of $29 billion over 10 years for transit and transportation projects across the province, and begin flowing funds immediately. We will boost transit investment by $250 million annually to kick-start priority transit projects.

■ I grew up in Regent Park so I have a clear understanding of the importance of affordable housing. Rent-geared-to-income meant that my parents could give their kids an opportunity to pursue higher education. Recent development in Regent Park is a template for what we need to continue throughout our city. Inclusionary zoning and low-interest loans for housing cooperatives will provide affordable and market value housing in our neighbourhoods.

■ I was elected as East York councillor in 1988. I was East York’s mayor from 1993 to 1997 until amalgamation. I was councillor for the new City of Toronto until my election as MPP in 2001. Before public service, I was counsel to the Minister of Immigration. I am proud of my constituency work and am a hands-on MPP for our community. My wife Shirley and I have lived in Beaches-East York for 31 years.

■ One issue that I’m very passionate about is getting an environmental assessment of Enbridge’s Line 9. Although the pipeline does not directly cross through the Beaches-East York, it does intersect 36 tributaries in the Lake Ontario watershed. A rupture anywhere along these tributaries could affect the quality of drinking water and the beach for millions. If elected as MPP, I would work to make sure this issue is made a priority at Queen’s Park.

■ There is no doubt that Toronto’s transit system is in need of serious improvements. The Green Party of Ontario would tackle gridlock within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area using dedicated revenue tools aimed at creating a system to move the most people at the least cost. This system would include a Downtown Relief Line, Transit City LRT lines and expanded GO service.

■ To make housing more affordable in Beaches-East York and across Ontario, I would support the introduction of minimum standard zoning legislation that, over a multi-year period, would allow a percentage of new housing units produced by private development firms to be devoted to affordable, inclusive housing.

■ I come from a teaching background and have been active in environmental issues that range from working on making sustainable family choices easier, to petitioning to ban BPA to encouraging families with the “just get outside” movement. Running for the Green Party is the next step to safeguard my children’s future and to protect Ontario’s local economies and natural resources so all Ontarians can have the secure, sustainable future we are all entitled to.

Tell us about your background and qualifications.

■ Our chronic transit and transportation problems are hurting our economy, our environment and our quality of life. Fixing that is one of our top priorities. The part that most concerns us here in Beaches-East York is building an east-west subway south of Bloor-Danforth as soon as we have the funds. We are the only ones who have committed to expanding subways without raising taxes.

What will you do to make housing more affordable in Beaches-East York and across Ontario?

■ As I listen to what people tell me, we want a government we can trust, we want better transit, schools, health care, but the big issue that comes up is jobs and the cost of living. We all know people who are struggling to get a job and struggling to pay the bills, especially hydro bills. I’m proud that my party is the only team with a plan to fix that.

Kenya’s Top Safari Spots Maasai Mara National Reserve

Amboseli National Park

The birthplace of the quintessential safari experience, the Mara is famous for its population of big cats and the great wildebeest migration that takes place between July and October.

Amboseli National Park is the best place to catch a glimpse of free-ranging elephants and offers tantalizing views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Be sure to spend some time trekking up Observation Hill, whose peak gives up an incredible overall panoramic view of the park.

Lake Nakuru National Park Nestled into the Great Rift Valley, Lake Nakuru National Park is a bird lover’s mecca where flocks of blushing pink flamingoes are the resident celebrities, and the park also serves as one of the first national rhinoceros sanctuaries.

City ceremony planned for 70th anniversary of D-Day Generations have passed since Canadian soldiers landed at Juno Beach on June 6, 1944 — and this Friday, June 6, representatives of those generations will gather at Nathan Phillips Square, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of France. The massive push that saw Allied soldiers land in Normandy, at great cost of life, turned the tide in the

Second World War and eventually saw the armies of Nazi Germany driven from France, Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands. Canadian forces assaulted a beachfront that was codenamed Juno, amphibiously and by parachute, while the Royal Canadian Air Force bombed inland targets and the Royal Canadian Navy lent 110 ships to the support of the landing.

Every year, Torontonians have commemorated the day of the landing , during which Canada suffered more than 1,000 casualties — 359 of whom perished. This year, D-Day veteran Alex Adair will speak at Nathan Phillips Square about his experiences in the war. Ve t e ra n E d w a rd O’Halloran’s daughter Joanne O’Halloran will speak about her experience as a sol-

dier’s child. And Cassandra Anderton, whose grandfather Weldon Clark served, will retell the stories Clark told her about his memories of that day. As well, during the week from June 2, archival photographs and models will be on display at City Hall, Metro Hall, the Scarborough Civic Centre the North York Civic Centre and Etobicoke Civic Centre.

At Toronto City Hall, there will also be a display of scale models of machinery and equipment used for the landing, courtesy of the International Plastic Modellers Society. city beaches now open wMost

The majority of the city’s swimming beaches are now officially open for the season.

Nine of the city’s swimming beaches – Bluffer’s Park, Centre Island, Cherry, Gibraltar Point, Hanlan’s Point, Kew-Balmy, Sunnyside, Ward’s Island and Woodbine – opened on Sunday, June 1. All of these beaches are manned by trained lifeguards. Etobicoke’s Marie Curtis Park Beach and Scarborough’s Rouge Beach are set to open on Saturday, June 14 once lifeguard training is complete.
