DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com “It’s a simple thing, right?” That’s Nick Kouvalis – the marketing and campaign manager who helped Rob Ford win the mayor’s race in 2010 – on the trick to running a winning campaign for the top political job in Toronto, and arguably the highest-profile municipal

post in Canada. Getting that post routinely requires a war chest of more than $1 million and a commitment of all or most of a year to a political marathon that has defeated cabinet ministers, CEOs, city councillors and even former mayors as they vie for the hearts, minds and ultimately votes of almost three million Torontonians.

The finish line for the upcoming marathon campaign is a little over a year from now: Oct. 27, when Toronto voters decide on a new council and mayor. And rumors are swirling as to who is likely to run. Ford has indicated he will run, and New Democrat MPP Olivia Chow and Councillor Karen Stintz are said to be working on assembling campaign teams.

Former councillor and mayor David Miller-era budget chief David Socknacki said he is exploring a candidacy. And political observers are watching to see what radio host John Tory and councillors Shelley Carroll, Adam Vaughan and Denzil Minnan-Wong will do. At this point, Kouvalis doesn’t plan on being involved in any >>>RUNNING, page 11

Area residents can find out more about Costco’s plans to build a store on the former Coca-Cola headquarters in Thorncliffe Park at a barbecue this Saturday. Put on in association with the Thorncliffe Park Tenants Association, the event will also be a day filled with kids’s activities, live music and other attractions. Thousands of residents are expected to attend. The tenants’ association, which works to improve the lives of the area’s tenants, wants to see a Costco built at the former Coca-Cola headquarters at 42-46 Overlea Blvd. west of Don Mills Road. “Thorncliffe Park is the home of new immigrants. Many of them are very well educated and professionals but not getting jobs,” the association said in a statement. “This is a big challenge for the Thorncliffe Park community. We are hopeful that by the addition of a Costco in (the) Thorncliffe neighbourhood, it will bring a lot of jobs for the local community.” At the Sept. 10 meeting of North York Community Council, >>>COKE, page 6

Marjorie Rombeiro serves cake to Donald Carton during afternoon tea at True Davidson Acres retirement residence in celebration of its 40th anniversary.

With the help of its dedicated volunteers, True Davidson Acres long-term care facility recently celebrated 40 years of service in the East York community. “The home wouldn’t be, without the volunteers who are so dedicated,” said Betty Tustin, the president of the volunteer association at True Davidson Acres. Tustin has been a volunteer at the nursing home for 25 years and her husband was a resident there for six years. “That’s where it all began for me.” Residents, staff and volunteers all gathered in the Great Hall of the facility on Friday, Sept. 20, to celebrate the occasion. Volunteers as well as staff were recognized by the City of Toronto for all their hard work and dedi-

cation and were presented with three certificates honoring their 40 years of care to its residents presented to them by BeachesEast York MPP Michael Prue, Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly and Beaches-East York MP Matthew Kellway. “I can’t say enough good things about the volunteers,” said Reg Paul, the general manager of long-term care homes and service for the city. “We have may staff who retire and then come back and volunteer.” Food service worker Lurline Barracks has been at True Davidson Acres for 39 years. It was the first job she got when she immigrated to Canada from Jamaica and she has seen a lot of changes over the years. Aside from the major renovations to the building, she’s seen more integration of different

ethnic backgrounds and races being accepted into the facility, Barracks said, and men and women residents are no longer separated with their own designated floors. Barracks plans to retire in about a year, but admits that when the time comes for her to be in a nursing home she would choose True Davidson Acres for one reason. True Davidson Acres first opened in 1973 and currently has 187 residents and offers a range of services from spiritual and religious care to rehabilitation to nursing and complementary music and art therapy. In the first week of October the facility will be launching its new free convalescent care program. According to Paul, 11 of the 187 beds will be dedicated to the new convalescent care program. “It’s really targeted for indi-

viduals who have just gone into hospital for surgery or as a result of a stroke and need more time to convalesce before heading back home,” said Paul. “So rather than leave them in a hospital where there is such a need for hospital beds, we make beds available. Patients in the program will be located in the west end of the building on the second floor and will have their own cafeteria, dining room and small gym. They can stay between 30 and 90 days in the program, which already has all of the necessary equipment and has three rooms ready according to the facility’s administrator, Carlos Herrera. “We’re expecting our first resident in the first or second week in October,” said Herrera.

What we’d like to see in 2014 W

hile 13 months may seem like a long time away, Toronto’s next municipal election and the race for who will be the mayor of our city come Oct. 27, 2014 is actually coming fast. In today’s edition, our special feature looks at some of the names being talked about as possible mayoral candidates. Considering that municipal candidates can register their nomination, start campaigning (and more importantly start raising money) as of Jan. 3, the time for voters to start paying attention is now. As our story points out, running for mayor in Toronto has become a costly marathon requiring a huge amount of political and personal stamina, and about $1 million in funding. The last mayoral race in 2010 had debates virtually every day in the final six weeks of a campaign that was ultimately won by Rob Ford. Ford will be running again, and we’ve identified some our view possible challengers in our story. Campaign for It’s our hope, though, that the 2014 campaign will be difmayor needs to ferent from 2010. That camfocus on city unity paign saw the divide between our city’s suburban communities of Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke and the downtown core ramped up for political gain. Ford played that divide masterfully, tapping into the frustration felt by suburban residents toward outgoing mayor David Miller and his administration, which was perceived as downtown-centric. Yes, it was a winning formula, but we’d like to see a campaign focusing on bringing Torontonians together in 2014 rather than a polarization of our city’s communities. We’d also like to see a race free from party politics. It’s critical municipal politics stays free of the party system. It’s the only level of representation we have not linked to political parties and agendas that may not mesh with the needs of a specific neighbourhood or ward. While high-profile mayor’s races attract voter interest, remember that choosing your ward councillor is a critically important decision. These are the politicians in your neighbourhood, close to your issues, and who are actually approachable. Also, be wary of council candidates latching onto mayoral candidates in an attempt to ride their coattails. Councillors’ first priority should be the people of the community they represent, not their political allegiance to the mayor.

Subway announcement has historic irony

I

magine that today you could take a bus in East York or Riverdale, go to the Donlands subway station, and then get a subway train directly to Union Station. Or how about getting out to Pearson Airport via a subway going west along Eglinton Avenue. Or how about being able to get to the Scarborough Town Centre by taking a subway that goes along Sheppard Avenue, which would have been eight years old this year. All that could have been in place if the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) plan written in the early 1980s called “Network 2011” had been acted upon. The irony of that plan ­— that could have been ­— was stopped by the very people who had commissioned it: politicians. Mayor Rob Ford’s unexpected cancellation of the Transit City plan was simply another chapter in

joe cooper watchdog that same process. A process that began at the start of the 20th Century when a proposal to build the Queen Street subway line was defeated in a plebiscite, which is very similar to a referendum but not the same, in 1912. That plebiscite was not over-turned until 1946, when the public finally accepted the idea, but even then the subway didn’t open until 1954. This was due to the simple reason that it took years of political bickering over nickels and dimes, subway routes and deciding which level of government would pay before shovels went into the ground. However, by 1980 it was clear to the TTC and the province that the age of subways was over due to the fact that they were too

expensive to build and maintain. By then it had been found that the most costeffective method of moving large numbers of people was by streetcar on a dedicated right of way, which today has become Light Rail Transport, or LRT. Politicians, on the other hand, want big megaprojects that will impress the voting public at election time. However, once elected to office they do not want to financially support such projects. When the NDP were in power in Ontario under then Premier Bob Rae, the Network 2011 plan was actually begun and work had started on the Eglinton Avenue West subway line. But when the Progressive Conservatives under Premier Mike Harris were elected in 1995, Harris personally ordered work on the subway stopped and what had been completed to be filled in.

Instead, Harris ordered subway work to start on a subway under Sheppard Avenue to the Scarborough Town Centre and for the Scarborough RT to be replaced with subway track. So all Mayor Ford is promoting today is the continuation of the inefficient and expensive plan implemented by Premier Harris. The Transit City plan incorporated a costeffective solution proven to move more people and improve the efficiency of existing subway lines with the use of larger cars and new computerized signals. Where real benefit with construction would come is with the creation of the downtown relief line. As it stands now, we will have to wait until 2020 before this current political debacle is resolved.

FACT: WE’VE OFFERED TO PAY THE SAME AMOUNT AS

PEARSON.

$.80

Amount recommended we pay per passenger

$.94

Amount we offered to pay

An independent advisory panel recommended that Billy Bishop be “taxed” the same way as Pearson Airport – on a per passenger basis, and that $.80 was a fair amount. We offered to pay the same amount as Pearson - $.94 per passenger – or 17.5% more than the recommended amount. But we don’t think it would be fair to ask our passengers to pay one penny more of tax to the City than they pay when they fly from Pearson.

������� ������� NAME: Olivia Chow CURRENT POSITION: New Democratic Party Member of Parliament for Trinity-Spadina BIOGRAPHY: Olivia Chow came to Canada from Hong Kong with her family in 1970. She was first elected as a school trustee in 1985, then was elected to Metropolitan Toronto Council in 1991 along with her husband, fellow New Democrat Jack Layton. The pair were elected to Toronto council at amalgamation, where Chow worked as council’s children’s advocate. Chow ran twice for the federal seat in Trinity-Spadina before joining Layton, then leader of the NDP, in Ottawa in 2005. Following Layton’s death in 2011, Chow has continued as MP for Trinity-Spadina.

NAME: Rob Ford CURRENT POSITION: Mayor of Toronto BIOGRAPHY: The son of former Conservative MPP and Etobicoke businessman Doug Ford Sr., Ford first joined Toronto council in 2000 as councillor for Ward 2 (Etobicoke North) and became mayor in 2010. Ford has made a name attacking what he sees as government waste and personally returning calls from residents. He has also been at the centre of a litany of controversies including allegations of drug use.

NAME: Shelley Carroll CURRENT POSITION: Don Valley East councillor BIOGRAPHY: A former community activist, Shelley Carroll got her start in politics as a Toronto District School Board trustee in 2000, finishing her single term there as co-chair. In 2003, she was elected to Toronto council in Ward 33 (Don Valley East). After spending her first term on council chairing the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, Carroll was picked for budget chair in 2006 and was a major ally of Miller. When he announced he wasn’t running in 2010, the longtime Liberal considered a run but decided against early in the election year. Through this term of council, Carroll has been one of Ford’s sharper critics.

NAME: Karen Stintz CURRENT POSITION: Eglinton-Lawrence councillor and chair of the Toronto Transit Commission BIOGRAPHY: Karen Stintz was elected to Toronto council in 2003 after famously answering an advertisement from a local ratepayer organization seeking a candidate to run against incumbent Ann Johnston. Stintz considered and rejected a run for mayor in 2010. Instead, she became chair of the Toronto Transit Commission, where she earned Mayor Rob Ford’s enmity opposing his Sheppard subway plan in favour of the existing light rail plan, then in 2013 championed another Scarborough subway – along the Scarborough RT line.

NAME: Adam Vaughan CURRENT POSITION: Trinity-Spadina councillor BIOGRAPHY: Son of the late CityTV journalist and politician Colin Vaughan, Adam Vaughan worked as a television journalist at CBLT and CityTV. During his tenure covering city hall, former mayor Mel Lastman famously threatened to have him “killed” because he believed (falsely) that Vaughan had leaked information about a shoplifting incident involving Lastman’s wife. Vaughan ran for Toronto council in 2006 in the ward left vacant by Olivia Chow, winning the race against NDP candidate Helen Kennedy. He has been one of Ford’s most vociferous critics since 2010.

Running for mayor takes lots of stamina

NAME: John Tory CURRENT POSITION: chair, CivicAction and CFRB radio host BIOGRAPHY: John Tory got his start in politics working for former Ontario premier Bill Davis and has worked for former prime ministers Brian Mulroney and Kim Campbell, before leading Rogers Media and Rogers Cable. After coming in second in the 2003 mayor’s race, Tory went on to lead the Ontario Progressive Conservative party, then host a popular afternoon radio show on CFRB 1010. Tory supporters made preparations for a second mayoralty run in 2010, but he backed out of the race early that year.

NAME: David Soknacki CURRENT POSITION: columnist with Metroland Media Toronto, President of Ecom Food Industries Corporation BIOGRAPHY: David Soknacki is a Scarborough business owner whose company Ecom Food Industries imports spices. He served a single term on the old Scarborough Council from 1994 to 1997, then returned to politics in 1999, filling former Scarborough mayor and councillor Frank Faubert’s seat in a byelection following his death. In 2003, he was Miller’s budget chief, and oversaw the first three budgets of that administration. In 2006, he left politics to return to his business and chair the Parc Downsview Park’s board.

NAME: Denzil Minnan-Wong CURRENT POSITION: Don Valley East councillor, chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee BIOGRAPHY: Denzil Minnan-Wong is a veteran of municipal politics in North York. He was first appointed to North York Council in 1994 to fill a vacant seat in Don Mills. A longtime Progressive Conservative, MinnanWong was among Miller’s more active critics and is one of Ford’s most trusted allies. He currently sits on the Executive Committee and chairs the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee. While he is loyal to Ford, he has differed from the mayor on occasion – notably, in not supporting a casino in downtown Toronto earlier this year.

>>>from page 1 of those campaigns. But as to the challenge of running a winner? “A simple thing,” he says. “You have to have a message that you’re communicating that the plurality of voters accept. You have to identify your voters, know who they are and get them out to vote.” That, in essence, was the formula Kouvalis used to propel Ford across the finish line, in a race that was considered former Liberal Health Minister George Smitherman’s to lose in early 2010: A blitz of robocalls, telephone town halls and shoe-leather to identify those voters who agreed with Ford’s mantra of stopping the “gravy train” of out-of-control public spending, and make sure they came out on election day. By election day, the Ford campaign had a detailed list of supporters. It’s unlikely that list will be as much use four years later, Kouvalis acknowledges, given what he calls “the distractions” of Mayor Ford’s current term. But the larger divide continues to persist: Ford’s support is strongest in suburban communities and weak in the downtown core. Andrea Adario, who served as press secretary on Miller’s 2003 campaign, says any contender in 2014 is going to have to address that divide. “The city needs a mayor who’s really going to unite most of the municipalities post amalgamation in a way we haven’t seen yet,” she says. “Any candidate needs to be visiting every corner of the city and getting into a headspace where they can comfortably be the advocate of all parts of Toronto. The mayor needs to be seen as a downtown candidate or an Etobicoke candidate.” Adario said given the gruelling pace of a Toronto election, any candidate also needs stamina. Once nominations open Jan. 3, 2014, candidates will have to balance fundraising and low-level campaigning with what has historically been a gruelling number of debates. “It was crazy,” recalls Adario. “We were debating nightly for sure. I would say there was a minimum of four a week, sometimes more. Everything from local ratepayer associations to big debates sponsored by news outlets.” On his radio show, Ford has indicated he doesn’t intend to attend nearly as many debates as he did in 2010. “There are risks as well as benefits,” says Adario. “You risk having the conversation unfold without you.... but he’s shown that he knows how to be disciplined and stay on message and he is a formidable campaigner. But it all depends on who else is running and whatever revelations we might have.” Which leads to one other very simple truth about mayors’ races in Toronto. “There are no rules,” says Kouvalis.

CONSUMER FEATURE

New chronic disease management tool improves quality of life People with COPD and CHF can enjoy life with well-managed health plans Diabetes, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), hypertension and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are just a few of the chronic diseases nearly 20 million Canadians are living with today. The diseases are more common in, but not exclusive to, seniors. The good news is that, when well-managed with medication, lifestyle choices and paying attention to early warning signs, people with chronic diseases like COPD (which causes shortness of breath and frequent coughing) and CHF (which causes shortness of breath and swelling in the legs) can enjoy a good quality of life. And there’s help. Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) assists people to stay at home longer, while helping them manage chronic diseases and other major health issues. Telehomecare is offered free of charge to clients of the Toronto Central CCAC and select CCACs throughout Ontario. It monitors patients from home using technol-

ogy, helping people living with these chronic diseases. Each day, Telehomecare patients use special equipment to check their blood pressure, weight, heart rate and pulse. Using a computer tablet, they answer simple questions about how they’re feeling that day. The information is sent automatically to the Telehomecare office. Their nurse reviews this information and speaks with the patient by phone if the numbers or symptoms are cause for concern. The Telehomecare nurse also has direct contact with the patient’s family doctor. Telehomecare includes weekly coaching sessions, in which the nurse educates the patient about their chronic diseases, and early warning signs indicating they should call their doctor – before they need emergency care. Most importantly, take action to stay healthy when you have COPD and CHF: • Follow your doctor’s instructions for how to take your medication • Eat healthy foods (with CHF, avoid salt) • Wash your hands often – to reduce your chance of picking up germs • Exercise daily – simply walking around the block or in the house helps

• Balance activity with rest. Even with a chronic disease, the choices and actions you take can make a big difference to your everyday health.

If you, or someone you know has COPD or CHF, Toronto Cen-

transit safety campaign launched wCycling A new campaign aimed at educating cyclists on sharing congested road space with trucks has been launched. Stay Safe, Stay Back encourages cyclists to stay visible at all times to prevent deadly situations with large vehicles. Organized by the Share the Road Coalition whose membership includes the Canadian Automobile Association, the campaign’s purpose is creating awareness on cycling safety. Visit www. sharetheroad.ca

tral CCAC offers these tips: Early warning signs for COPD and CHF – contact your doctor as soon as possible: • A new cough, or a cough that lasts a long time • Weight gain • Shortness of breath especially when you are making an effort (e.g., exercising or going upstairs) • New or increased tiredness • Ankles more swollen than usual • A fever of 38°C or more

16 Public Meeting On Gardiner’s Future wOct.

Waterfront Toronto has announced the date for a second public meeting on the future of the Gardiner Expressway. Along with the city, the tri-governmental agency has resumed work studying options including repair, replacement or outright removal of the Gardiner’s elevated portion. That’s in addition to $500 million of city-approved repairs scheduled over the next decade.

rahul gupta TO in TRANSIT The meeting is Oct. 16 at the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon inside Toronto Reference Library. For more info, visit www. gardinereast.ca Eglinton West construction wUpdate:

Fall and winter road closures were announced by Metrolinx as construction of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit project continues. Work crews are busy relocating watermains and other utilities in preparation for tunnelling below Eglinton Avenue West., which continues east of Allen Road come mid-2014. Impacted by Streetcar Work wBuses

Last week TTC began diverting Leslieville buses to assist streetcar track work. The transit commission is set to begin constructing a service route along Leslie Street leading south to the future Leslie Barns

carhouse. Until December, buses on the 83 Jones route will bypass Leslie in both directions between Lake Shore Boulevard East and south of Mosley Street as work crews continue watermain removal. A Shout-Out To Brief, Era w‘Interlining’

A new line of retro-subway gear pays homage to the short-lived “interlining” era of the TTC. The idea was to integrate both Yonge and newlyopened Bloor-Danforth via a junction of switching tracks, making it possible to board a train and ride it between lines without having to transfer. The plan was shelved in mere months. Now Astrid Idlewild has produced classic tee shirts for each of the 36 stations on the 1966 subway map (including now-defunct Lower Bay station).

Subway means forgiveness

T

here will be property tax increases. We can expect congestion on the Bloor-Danforth subway line growing to a human traffic jam by the time trains reach Yonge and Bloor. Buses will be the booby prize for priority neighbourhoods promised stops on a light rail line. Yet raise a cheer, Scarborough. Our government is finally building subways deep into Scarborough. Those of us who take the Scarborough Rapid Transit (RT) line to the Scarborough Town Centre will no longer face the insult of sporadic service and several escalator rides at the Kennedy station transfer to the BloorDanforth subway line. We will be able to clutch a pole from Yonge Street all the way to Sheppard Avenue and McCowan Road one day, where, if our mayor’s luck holds out, we will one day be able to hang tight as the subway wheels around

david nickle the city and heads back west beneath the condo-towershaded pavement, right back to Yonge Street. For now it is enough that we are building a subway – one that replaces that clanking, wheezing toy-choo-choo-train insult of a conveyance, the Scarborough RT. The three-stop subway to Sheppard will in fact be a proper apology: a $3 billion box of chocolates from neglectful old city hall, begging forgiveness for staying out late and spending all Scarborough’s hard-earned money on lattes and film festivals and parades and fancy waterfronts. So Scarborough, subway in hand, might it perhaps be time that we offered up some proper forgiveness? Perhaps we should abandon that narrative that has so long defined

Scarborough: that it is forever treated as Toronto’s poor relation, living with naught but the threadbare hand-me-downs and the withering contempt of its so-called betters. Which means that when it next becomes necessary for Toronto to expand transit, and Scarborough is faced with perhaps watching its tax dollars go to building a downtown relief line – in part, to deal with the crush of riders on the newer, longer BloorDanforth line – it would not be out of place to cultivate a certain magnanimity. Should the light rail lines that are also to be built in Scarborough – along Eglinton and Sheppard Avenues – turn out to be more help than hindrance, it might be gracious to say so. Surely, the subway to Sheppard has made it all better.

Riverdale celebration marks 10th anniversary of Dundas bike lanes HILARY CATON bsrm@insidetoronto.com In celebration of Community Health and Wellbeing Week, Monday, Sept. 30 to Friday, Oct. 4, the South Riverdale Community Health Centre (SRCHC) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of bike lanes along Dundas Street East from Kingston Road and Broadview Avenue on Oct. 1. “It’s a super popular route

and that’s why we’re doing this event, there’s so many cyclists out there,” said Paul Young, a health promoter for the SRCHC. “We thought it’d be great to thank them for using the bikes and take in how the community worked to get this thing in place.” This year’s Community He a l t h a n d We l l b e i n g Week theme is Shift the Conversation, which, accord-

ing to Melissa Trapper, the coordinator of planning and communication at SRCHC, refers to the shift from a strictly medical perspective to looking at different factors that come into play to be healthy. “It’s not just about prevention, but the determinants of health, like physical activity, housing, social support, employment all those factors that impact health,” she said.

“That’s why we thought it’d be a good tie in with the bike lane and make it a focus.” The week-long festivities will have 108 communitygoverned healthcare organizations across the province focussing on shifting the conversation toward the eight domains of wellbeing: education, community vitality, democratic engagement, environment, healthy populations, leisure and culture,

living standards and time use. “It’s more about highlighting a need for a comprehensive approach to improving the health of individuals, families and communities,” Trapper said. In 1998, when a community meeting was held to discuss air quality in the area, which was a growing concern at the time, someone suggested the idea of creating a

bike lane as a way to improve the air quality. At the time, a group, who called themselves Dundas-Everybody’s Access to Safe Travel (EAST), really liked the idea and began a journey that didn’t end until the fall of 2003 when the bike lanes were finally installed.

i

The bike lane celebration begins at 8 a.m. at Carlaw and Dundas. An SRCHC open house is from 3 to 7 p.m. at 955 Queen St. E.
