Parents with children enrolled in a preschool program provided by École Napoléon, a French immersion school on Danforth Avenue, are scrambling to find a new facility for their children this week. “I think everyone has been in a state of shock,” said Erin Young, a parent with a three-

The facility’s preschool was shut down as of Monday after the Ontario Ministry of Education found it was operating without a licence for the past three years despite being inspected yearly by the ministry.

TEGH’s walking clinic earns honours ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

Sitting is discouraged in this clinic’s waiting room. That’s because patients are urged to walk while they wait to talk to their doctor. Lisa Sparrow, a registered nurse at Toronto East General Hospital, developed the concept of a walking clinic after hearing a doctor’s frustration of speaking to patients about the importance of physical activity while having to sit in an examination room. “Talking about it versus actually doing it was frustrating,” Sparrow said. “She wanted to walk the walk instead of just talking about it.” The Walking Diabetes Group Clinic was started in March 2012. In recognition of the clinic, Sparrow was recently honoured with the Innovation Of The Year award by hospital president and CEO Rob

To our knowledge, it’s the first time that it incorporates a physician visit as a group while walking. – Lisa Sparrow

Devitt and Ontario Minister of Health Deb Matthews. More than 25 hospital projects were showcased at the event and were in the running for the award. Sparrow’s innovation is simple, yet was not done before. “To our knowledge, it’s the first time that it incorporates a physician visit as a group while walking,” Sparrow said. At the walking clinic, up to six patients take a 30-minute stroll with a doctor and a diabetes educator. During the walk, the doctor meets with each patient individually while the rest of the group drops back or goes ahead.

“And now there’s no waiting for these patients,” Sparrow said. “We leave together, and the time they would’ve spent waiting they spend walking.” Devitt described the walking clinic as a “low tech, no cost idea” that could be implemented at any hospital. “As an organization we have really pushed the idea of innovation as a way to help us with patient care,” he said. “The staff have responded and all of these displays are profiling creative ideas that were identified by staff, worked up by staff and implemented, and they cover the gamut of the hospital.” Matthews thanked hospital staff for “demonstrating that we can continue to drive quality improvement at the same time as we actually stop wasting money on things that we can do for less.”

Layton plaque, oak tree unveiled at Withrow Park DANIELA PITEO bsrm@insidetoronto.com

Jack Layton was honoured with a plaque and oak tree in Withrow Park.

Former NDP leader Jack Layton was celebrated over the weekend when people gathered for a plaque unveiling at Withrow Park. On Saturday, the Toronto Danforth NDP Riding Association unveiled a plaque next to an oak tree planted in memory of Layton. Elected officials, including Craig Scott MP, Peter Tabuns MPP and City Councillors Paula Fletcher and Mary Fragedakis, along with Mr. Layton’s widow, Olivia Chow, were all present for the unveiling. Layton’s widow said she was honoured to attend the afternoon ceremony where she spoke to a crowd of supporters. “An oak tree is strong, it’s sturdy and I heard it changes colour from green to orange,” Chow said. “An oak tree is such a perfect memorial – with deep roots and spreading branches – and with acorns that mean future growth.” “I know that many (people) were inspired by Jack’s message of hope and optimism and love,” Chow said. “I certainly feel the love here today.” Chow, who said she misses her late husband’s charismatic smile

most, said Layton was particularly fond of the Logan Street park. “Jack loved this park because it is such a wonderful meeting place for the community,” said Chow. “He loved cycling through here and coming to barbecue here.” Toronto-Danforth MP Craig Scott also spoke about the similarities a strong oak and Jack Layton share. “Jack was a team builder and he left behind a team, so he lives on,” Scott said. “He had very deep roots in this community, but a young tree with newly planted roots is a tree that represents the continuation of Jack’s legacy as it grows, the community will continue to grow and he will be a part of it.” “It’s very important to realize that Jack was very committed to the community, not just within Toronto, but within the country,” said one of the organizers, Mary Anne Beamish. “He was very active within this community and we were so lucky to have a representative like him, both as a city councillor and later when he went to Ottawa.” While Layton’s memory is held in high esteem amongst his colleagues, it is equally regarded by the

many Torontonians he served. “I came out in memory of Jack Layton, who was our city councillor when we moved into the neighborhood and from there our federal representative and of course, the leader of the (NDP),” said Ron McKay. “I came to celebrate the memory of all the things he stood for, that I also hold dear myself, the values of inclusiveness and community, so I just wanted to come down and honour him.” Area resident Paul Gauthier met Layton three decades ago and later joined his campaign. “I met Jack around 1986. I was one of the organizers from a bowla-thon and we had mailed all the city councillors and MPPs. Jack showed up to bowl and support us,” said Gauthier “We both had the same oncologist when I was working for his campaign. I had to go back for treatment and the first thing I knew was I got a getwell card from Jack and Olivia. It brought tears to my eyes. “He’s just a fantastic person and I want to keep his memory alive.”

And with the increased traffic volume on our roads that comes with the fall season, there comes a greater need for vigilance and proper planning for all of us making our way around the city. We know Toronto has traffic congestion challenges. The longest commuting times in the country are in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area, according a StatsCan report released in late June. Traffic congestion has been identified as a major economic impediment by the Toronto Region Board of Trade, costing billions to the greater Toronto economy. The need for a sustained commitment from all levels of government to funding transit infrastructure is acute. And the discussion about our view what’s happening on our roadin Toronto is not confined Drivers must ways to congestion. There’s safety, too. pack patience, A pair of recent schoolchildren pedestrian deaths, including plan ahead the tragic losses of a 14-year-old North York girl and a five-yearold girl in Scarborough, spurred the Toronto District School Board last week to request chair Chris Bolton to enter into discussions with the city, police and other school boards to talk traffic safety. Trustees have directed that those representatives look at ways to reduce traffic risks to students (an increased use of crossing guards is already one suggestion). That means there’s a lot happening on our roads. So for motorists, trip planning is important. Leave yourself plenty of time to get your destination. Remember, beyond traffic congestion caused by any ongoing roadwork, there are some new capital projects underway in the city as well that will impact travel times. For example, a second tunnel borer machine is about to start digging below Eglinton Avenue West as part of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail project – a project that, once completed, should play a part in alleviating congestion. But while the tunneling lasts, one should expect traffic delays. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with construction projects and road closures. The city ohas an updated web page detailing road closures and their durations. Check it out at http://bit.ly/1goY61f In the meantime, if you’re heading out on the roads, be alert, practice patience, and plan ahead.

Start thinking about 2014 municipal election now

W

hen the Borough of East York – and that includes Leaside and Thornecliffe – was part of Metro Toronto, its citizens had the highest satisfaction level with delivery of services and governance of any of the six municipalities. Can the same be said today? We have had the evidence for that on an almost daily basis as problem after problem with the city is paraded out in our local media. Erosion Superficially, community life goes on as it always has. Yet the social and economic fabric that has created the quality of life that we have enjoyed for so long is being eroded. So now that we seem to be stuck with this huge mega-city, we have to ask – was this new city worth losing 200 years of identity, self-government, and low

joe cooper watchdog operating costs for? More importantly, what is the real relationship that our communities will have with the mega-city now, and in the future? The original rationalization for amalgamation given to us by Queen’s Park was that the city would become more efficient and save money, which would be realized in lower taxes. That has not happened and will more likely never happen given the simple fact that large municipal governments cost more money to run than small ones. This is why the historic trend for the last 100 years around the world has been to avoid creating big cities. What has been worse for all of us are the well-known barriers that have been set up between ordinary citizens and their municipal

government. Yet lobbyist and well-moneyed special interest groups get easy access to city hall. When East York was a borough you could talk to the mayor personally and speak directly to the council when it was in session. Try to do that today. Pre-election year The point of all this grumbling on my part is that this year is a preelection year. More than ever you are going to need to take a very close look at who is promising to represent the community’s interests at city hall after 2014. This is going to be particularly true for the position of mayor. I think it can be easily said that since amalgamation the primary attitude expressed by city hall about East York has been at best indifference. At worst we have seen the systematic wiping out of our identity as boundary lines and corporate

symbols are blurred or removed. Right now there are several people planning to run for mayor in the 2014 election. East York perspective They are only a handful at this time because it is still too early in the race to legally declare their intentions. Once the race begins in earnest I am going to be presenting you with the results of an interview with each of the leading mayoralty candidate. My primary question to them will be – “What will your administration do for East York to make it a strong and healthy community and preserve its unique history and character”? I think you will find the answers to be interesting. Joe Cooper is a long-time East York resident and community activist. His column appears every Thursday. Contact him at eym@insidetoronto.com

Danforth Avenue cafe stabbing victim remembered as ‘kind and gentle’ man Beach resident Dominic Parker, 45, a Markham firefighter

Dominic Parker shown in a Facebook photo.

A Beach resident who was stabbed to death on the Danforth on the weekend is being remembered as a “kind and gentle” man with an infectious smile. Police allege 45-year-old Dominic Parker was sitting with friends in the Rotana Cafe at 1530 Danforth Ave. when a man attacked him “without provocation” at 1:18 a.m. Saturday. Parker was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital where he died Monday.

A suspect fled the scene but was arrested in Scarborough Sunday afternoon Jay Michaels, a good friend of Parker, described him as an urban adventurer, noting he wasn’t only a public servant in Markham but was also a former bike courier, soldier, angler, hunter, world traveller and a loving husband and father. “He had an infectious smile and was kind and gentle,” Michaels said. “I never saw him in a conflict in my life.”

Mayor Ford’s love of campaigning evident M

ayor Rob Ford has made a name for himself as a great lover of football, sometimes to the point of distraction. But there is another game that excites nearly as much passion from our mayor and distracts him from his day-to-day duties almost as thoroughly. That would be campaigning. On Monday, Ford found the hustings so distracting he could barely pay attention to questions in a press scrum, held outside his office and just a few feet away from the spot where his staff had set up a television screen continuously looping a video of highlights of the summer of 2013. The mayor finally stopped, transfixed at the slow-motion video of himself, getting ready to arm-wrestle wrestlerturned-politician Hulk Hogan at the start of a local comic convention. When asked whether he was in fact campaigning now, with his video and another Ford Fest in the offing later this week, the mayor was clear: “I’ve never stopped campaigning... If you do, you lose at the polls.” In the strictly practical sense of the word, the mayor was correct: an elected official is being judged from the moment he or she takes office. However, there are strict rules about spending and

david nickle the city receiving donations for electoral campaigns outside the campaign period. And the video, produced by a local production/editing company and scored by one of the mayor’s vocallytalented staff-members, sure looks like a bit of both. But Ford doesn’t care about these things, and by the evidence, the powers-that-be don’t either. Toronto’s Compliance Audit Committee let the mayor off the hook over a boatload of questions arising from the way he and his brother conducted the 2010 mayoralty campaign when they were brought forward early in the term. Worth the risk The mayor survived that, just as he survived a conflict of interest ruling that threatened to remove him from office. And as things stand right now, campaigning hard and pushing the rules might be worth the risk. Because as much as the video playing in the office window struggles to maintain a happy narrative, the other narrative – the one surrounding the actual business of governing – is less cheerful. The mayor could well see his subway plans

dashed, once again, as the realities of financing the Scarborough RT replacement with a subway dash against the October council meeting. The questions surrounding videos and allegations of drug use continue to swirl, and those other videos – of an overrefreshed-seeming Ford at the Taste of the Danforth give a very different sense of the Summer of Ford. Indeed, the scrum happened just as he left the city’s parks and environment committee– a committee he belongs to ex-officio, but never routinely attends. This time, as a week ago, the mayor came with the express purpose of blocking an attempt to circumvent his budget process, by adding projects and programs back into the budget before he had even had the chance to set a framework. Ford had to block the matter there, because really, he would have no hope of stopping a budgetary coup at council, a body over which he has long ago lost control. Much better to concentrate on arm-wrestling photo ops, picnics in parks and fishing trips. They might not get him reelected, but they certainly seem to be keeping our mayor entertained.

Residents can take part in Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup Local residents are invited to help launch the 20th edition of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup this Saturday at Woodbine Beach Park. Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a community initiative taking place on shorelines (fresh and salty) across Canada to address the issue of shoreline litter. “Throughout its 20-year history, the Great Canadian

Shoreline Cleanup has enlisted half a million Canadians to collect approximately 1.2 million kilograms of shoreline litter - the approximate weight of 259 school buses,” said Jill Dwyer, program manager for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup in a release. “Although these figures represent great accomplishments, they also indicate that there is much more work left

to do, and many more volunteers required to stem the tide of shoreline litter.” Shoreline litter is a serious environmental issue in Canada – and worldwide. Its effects are far-reaching – from entangling and choking wildlife, to being ingested by wild animals, to negatively impacting water quality and cleanliness. For example, during last year’s cleanup effort, 45 ani-

mals were found entangled, including 22 fish, 10 birds (including gulls, swans and heron) and even a fox. Shoreline litter can also pose safety risks to humans, and cause disruptions or imbalances within the local ecosystem. The cleanup takes place from Sept. 21 to 29, removing litter anywhere land meets water. Re g i s t r a t i o n f o r t h e

Proposed Laird condo plan pits councillors against city LISA QUEEN lqueen@insidetoronto.com Councillors want the city to hire an outside planner to fight a proposed seven-storey condo building in Leaside, even though city planning staff believe the project is a suitable development for the neighbourhood. But doing that would be a waste of taxpayers’ money, the developer’s lawyer, David Bronskill, suggested. In a report to North York Community Council recently, planning staff said the city should support the 78-unit building at 2 Laird Dr. in Leaside at an upcoming Ontario Municipal Board hearing as long as some relatively minor concerns are addressed. The project is already at the OMB because the developer argues the city has taken too long to make a decision about the project. A second

pre-hearing is scheduled for Nov. 22. However. Don Valley West Councillor John Parker convinced councillors at community council to fight the development. Given staff’s support of the project, the city would have to hire an outside planner to represent councillors’ position at the OMB. Community council’s decision must still be approved by city council at its Oct. 8 meeting. The community appeared to support community council’s decision. Geoff Kettel, of the Leaside Property Owners’ Association Incorporated, said fighting the development at the OMB would satisfy the ratepayers’ group and neighbours. In a letter to community council, the association said the building would be out of context in that location, which is an important entry

point for Leaside. Several nearby properties that have been converted to condos have been no more than five storeys, the letter said. While the developer has consulted with the community, there have only been negligible changes to reduce the impact on the community, it added. Resident Allan McCartney agreed, saying he has concerns about the impact of the building on the community. However, Bronskill said the site is suitable for intensification. He argued the city shouldn’t be paying to go against its own planning staff’s position at the OMB. “I would ask you to weigh if that is an appropriate use of tax dollars,” he said.

A planned October mid-week closure of a portion of the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line is now off. Two closures are still planned for the line next month to assist the ongoing installation of a new subway signaling system. But TTC engineers have now determined it is no longer necessary to close the line between Tuesday, Oct. 15 and Friday, Oct. 18 from King to Osgoode station. The line will still close Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 12 to 14, from Bloor to Union station, and from Oct 19 to 20 from Bloor to St. George station.

seeks more bike lanes wLetter

A woman has written an open letter to Mayor Rob Ford calling for more bike lanes after she was seriously injured following a cycling accident. Taylor Flook suffered a fractured nose and lost of some of her front teeth when her tires got stuck in the streetcar tracks at the intersection of Bathurst Street and Dupont Street in August. Her experience inspired her to post an open plea to the mayor which has been shared hundreds of times through social media. An online fundraising campaign has also raised $3,600 to pay for her dental reconstructive surgery. Rahul Gupta is The Mirror’s transit reporter. His column appears every Tuesday.

Province closes local preschool >>>from page 1 the school Sept. 9, stating the ministry was shutting down the preschool program because it has been operating as an unlicensed childcare facility. Only five families are able to keep their children in the program. According to the Ontario Ministry of Education, a licence is not needed if a centre has less than six children registered. The five children chosen will be the ones who have been in the program the longest. For the other 12 families, Young included, they will have to find a new facility for their children, which will be difficult as many childcare programs registration periods have ended. “Trying to find another place for your kid to go in the middle of September is pretty much a non-starter,” Young said.

The Toronto-Danforth MPP sent a letter to the province’s Minister of Education Liz Sandals on Sept. 12 requesting an answer to the question: Why did it take three years to notice and to act?

table soundproof booth and sing along to the chorus of Lavigne’s ballad ‘Keep Holding On’. Raise Your Voice is designed primarily as an awareness-raising campaign, though there will also be a fundraising component in the coming months. “We were looking for ways to engage a younger demographic and raise awareness of women’s health especially for younger women,” said Women’s College Hospital Foundation spokesper-

son Arlene Madell. “The reason we approached Avril is she’s young, she’s globally well-known just like our leading research facility is, and she’s Canadian.” The soundproof booth is affixed on a truck with Lavigne’s picture and Women’s College Hospital signage on it. It has already made a few stops, including one at the Molson Amphitheatre when Lavigne played there on Labour Day weekend and a more recent stop at the Eaton Centre.

be released on iTunes this fall. “The booth is soundproof and all the voices are mixed together, so we’re hoping even people who think ‘oh, I can’t sing’ won’t feel shy,” Madell said. “Hopefully, the song’s a hit and people will be able to hear it and say ‘I was part of that.’” “We want to show this is not your grandmother’s hospital, or your mother’s hospital,” Madell said.

i

The soundproof booth will make appearances at Woodbine Beach from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
