DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto could join with cities in the United States and in Canada to host the World Cup of soccer in 2026. Toronto council supported a motion from Ward 6 Councillor Mark Grimes to ask staff to look at what it would take to hold the international soccer event in Toronto and the region 12 years from now.

ESA writers take top honours School leads the Canadian field for Scholastic arts competition CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com The talented students of Etobicoke School of the Arts (ESA) recently won a record number of Scholastic Art and Writing Awards – as a school,

collectively winning more honours than most competing countries. “The headline here is that ESA won more national awards than any country in the world, other than the U.S.,” longtime ESA teacher Matthew Varey said

of the awards, which are run by Alliance for Young Artists and Writers in New York City. “It’s an American competition, so the U.S. gets most of the awards. Korea was third and Canada was a strong second.” Led by ESA, Varey said

Canadian students won 191 “Golden Keys” – 141 of them taken home by ESA’s talented artists and writers, who also won 25 national awards. Dating back to 1923, the Scholastic Art and Writing >>>school, page 14

Grimes said he hoped that the games could be hosted in and around Toronto without constructing new infrastructure – and also bring vast attention to the city. And he said that Toronto should be looking forward, after it gets through hosting the Pan Am Games next year. “We’ve got the Pan Am Games in 2015 but what’s after that? What are we looking at? Expo’s been talked about, the Olympics have been talked about. But in 2026, I hear that the World Cup may be looking at North America.” Grimes said there are facilities not only in Toronto, but also in Buffalo, Michigan, Chicago, >>>staff, page 31

Alderwood United reaches a Caregivers can get hand out to Kenyan village support, resources Volunteers pitch in at Metroland show at medical clinics The Caregiver Show comes to the Direct Energy Centre May 14

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com In a remote Kenyan village more than 12,200 kilometres away is a community that has been forever changed by the kindness of the congregation at Alderwood United Church. Located a three-and-a-half hour drive northeast of Nairobi, Mikinduri is a small, poor community where just six years ago some children were so malnourished they were registering well below the growth standard on charts designed for Third World countries, said Cheri Butt, an Alderwood United congregant who has been traveling there every year since 2009 to volunteer with PEI-based charity Mikinduri Children of Hope. “When we first went there, they were starving,” Butt said, noting she and sisters Tracy and Cindy were the first from Alderwood United to take part in the mission trip six years ago. “Right away, we started up a feeding centre, so every time I go back now, the kids look healthier and healthier. It’s the changes and the improvements that I see each year that makes it such a rewarding experience and keeps me going back.” When Butt returned from that first trip with her sisters in 2009 and shared the experience with fellow churchgoers, she was blown away by the positive support they got in response. Butt has also successfully recruited church volunteers such as George Thackray and Catherine MitchellBailey to participate in Mikinduri Children of Hope’s annual February mission to conduct medical, vision and dental clinics in the east African village. Alderwood United has also successfully coordinated a series of annual fundraisers the last four years. The first fundraiser – a dinner and silent auction – raised upward of $3,000, while last year’s community bazaar raised more than $6,500 between proceeds and donations. With that money, Alderwood United has not only helped fund the local feeding centre for the last two years, but also built a classroom to help the children of Mikinduri continue with their education.

Here, she poses with her sponsor child Justa (left) and Justa’s sister Josephine during this year’s mission trip in February.

Butt said since her first trip to Mikinduri in 2009, registration for the local school’s Class 8 (equivalent to Grade 8 in Canada) has grown from just one student to more than 70 – and that’s thanks, in large part, to the efforts of Alderwood United and other Mikinduri Children of Hope donors who helped fund the rebuilding of the school. For Mitchell-Bailey, a Lanor JMS teacher who accompanied Butt on this year’s mission trip, seeing so many children so eager to learn

despite their sometimes dire living situations was a sight to behold. “I saw this one little boy with just a nub of a pencil attached with string to his shirt, like it was his most prized possession,” she said of the experience. “That was pretty special to see.” What Butt appreciates most about Mikinduri Children of Hope is that it’s not about handouts, but lending people a helping hand up. “It’s all about helping them help themselves,” she said, adding that everyone who receives medical, dental or vision care at Mikinduri’s annual nine-day clinic pays a token fee that amounts to about $1 Canadian – a charge implemented just three years ago after patients expressed a desire to contribute to the costs of their own care. And at the vision clinic, where Butt has spent the bulk of her time volunteering these past six years, the difference Mikinduri makes is clearly visible – literally. “The first time you see someone who can now see, whereas they couldn’t when they walked in the door, it’s incredible,” she said. “The look on their faces, the smiles, the tears. I can’t even describe it. It’s just incredible.”

We’d like to extend an invitation to family caregivers. Metroland Media Toronto is proud to be the founding producer of The Caregiver Show to be held May 14 at the Direct Energy Centre. As many as eight million Canadians are family caregivers. It’s not uncommon for people to care for family members or friends in short- or long-term need. In fact, it is so common we don’t tend to identify ourselves as caregivers. But caregiving is a challenge. Caregiving is a commitment. It’s often fraught with worry, built on unflinching dedication and often carried out with little respite. It’s important for caregivers to know there are resources available to them to help in challenging times. The Caregiver Show has three main goals: to provide caregivers with information, to provide the opportunity for caregivers to network with other family members in the same situation and a chance for caregivers to get a little pampering. It’s absolutely free, and we suggest

you register early to attend. Speakers at the show will include: n Teepa Snow is a highly sought speaker and an occupational therapist currently working as a dementia care and dementia education specialist. She has an independent practice in North Carolina; n Dr. Amy D’Aprix is co-founder of Essential Conversations Project, Inc., an organization dedicated to assisting families in having the key planning/decision-making discussions while honouring the emotional components inherent in these conversations; n Shirlee Sharkey is president and chief executive officer of Saint Elizabeth Health Care, a leading national health-care organization known for its social innovation, strong financial performance and pioneering practices. We encourage you to visit our show website at www.caregivershow. ca for more information and to register for this very special day. If you know someone in the community who is a family member caring for a loved one, why not suggest this show? Presenting sponsor is Saint Elizabeth Health Care. Sponsors include downsizingdiva.com, Alzheimer Society and Community Care Action Centre among others. Peter Haggert is the editor-in-chief of Metroland Media Toronto.

Celebrating our spring initiatives I

Write us

t may actually be that spring has sprung.

Excuse us for taking this rare opportunity to use this space to talk about a few spring initiatives we at The Etobicoke Guardian have underway. First and foremost, we’d like you to take a look at our caregivershow.ca website, promoting our upcoming very special day at the Direct Energy Centre. You’ll be hearing a lot in coming weeks about this show, aimed at being a resource and a respite for family caregivers. We don’t all consider ourselves family caregivers, but in truth, one in four cares for a family member or friend who has some form of short or long-term incapacity. At The Caregiver Show, on May 14, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. there will be sessions on caring for family members, an opportunity to learn about resources available to help caregivers, and an our view opportunity to meet people in the same circumstance for friendship and empathy. And yes, we want to Caregiver offer a little pampering for careshow supports givers as well. It’s a free day. For more inforthe family mation and to register, please go to the caregivershow.ca website. On a different spring note, you may have noticed information on UsedToronto.com, our latest platform for family-friendly classifieds. It’s time to clean out those closets, basements and garages and make a little money. What’s old to you can be new to someone else this spring. A third initiative is our new portal celebrating Toronto’s interest in the upcoming World Cup. Go to www.etobicokeguardian.com and in the rotating carousel of eight stories, you’ll see one takes you to our World Cup pages. Have a favorite soccer team? Are you a blogger? We’d love to hear from you. So apologies once again to expand in this space on how we’re dealing with spring. But we thought it was useful information. The Caregiver Show is a tremendous and rare opportunity for family caregivers. We hope you’ll pass it along to someone in need. UsedToronto is a practical solution to spring cleanup. And then, perhaps the joy of summer activities in some neighbourhoods will be the celebration of this year’s World Cup. Teams from 32 countries will battle it out for world soccer supremacy at this year’s tourney in Brazil and we have passionate Toronto residents following each team.

Safety at city hall: the three-sided story

A

s I write this the morning of April 1, reporters and cameras are camped outside the mayor’s office, waiting for our chief magistrate to show up for council. It is antsy business, for more reasons than April Fool’s Day worries: encounters with the mayor at city hall are chancy operations. Mayor Rob Ford makes it difficult. Sometimes, he breaks into a run. A couple of weeks ago, when reporters and cameras were following him in from a hot dog run in Nathan Phillips Square, the mayor called a charge through reporters lining a public staircase, knocking down a photographer. He was closely accompanied by city hall security, as he often is – with security imposing themselves between photographers and the mayor, and at one point, asking reporters to stop shouting questions. The same guard was bowled over himself in the

david nickle the city crush. The situation was hardly a safe one for anyone in city hall at the time. Reporters and camera people were in immediate harm’s way, but so too were members of the public, attempting to access city hall. The mayor might also have harmed himself, although he seemed to feel he had the matter under control. Now, no one was seriously hurt – or at least says that they were. But the goings-on at city hall between the mayor, the press and security are an ongoing worry. Late last year, when the mayor was losing his power, security in council chambers stood by while the mayor bumped into city councillor Pam McConnell as he ran across the floor of council, and allowed the mayor’s

driver Jerry Agyemang to photograph members of the public in an intimidating way while the Ford brothers goaded them on. It is interesting to note that last week, while I was attempting to photograph Porter Airlines owner Robert Deluce making a deputation in council chambers from the same angle, security put a stop to it. It is clear that there are different sets of rules for the public and the press – even councillors – and members of the mayor’s personal staff. As a matter of disclosure – when I’m not writing this column, I’m serving as president of the City Hall Press Gallery, and trying to deal with these matters. I do so with some sympathy for at least two of the three sides. As journalists, we have to be able to ask difficult questions and confront city politicians with uncomfortable truths. That’s not negotiable.

And yet the situation that city hall security find themselves in these days is unprecedented: looking after the safety of everyone in a city hall, with a chief magistrate that demands they double as a personal guard and has been known to behave erratically. It is an awful situation. But at least until the election and quite possibly beyond, it’s a situation that will persist. As I finish writing this column, Mayor Ford has arrived at city hall. When reporters asked him where he might have been, he responded by pushing through the throng and grabbing the lens of a camera held by a CTV cameraman, pushing it away and disappearing into his office. It’s hardly an incident to inspire feelings of security. David Nickle is The Guardian’s city hall reporter. His column appears Thursdays. Twitter: @DavidNickle

Reader says Toronto media need to focus on what is important To the editor: It is so nice to see a woman running for mayor. We have had a lot of historical memorable situations in recent years. First, a black president in the U.S., then we voted an NDP as head of the federal Opposition, if only for a short time, and finally a woman as leader of the provincial Parliament. I sure hope Karen Stintz gets in as mayor as she will be an improvement from our current mayor, Rob Ford He has made a mess of his position since Day 1 and as a supporter and a resident of Etobicoke North, I have been sincerely disappointed

in him. He had such big plans for improving the City of Toronto and the only good one was reducing of the number of councillors on council. His private life should not have been brought out in the open for all to see. ignored issues Most of Toronto’s media neglected two important events in 2013 – on July 2, England celebrated a special number of years of the Queen‘s coronation and the sighting of a comet coming our way from a different direction.

School children should have been studying it, as it was something that does not happen every day in this world. But did we hear anything about these events from the media? Oh no, they were busy blackballing Ford for a senseless event from his youth. I just wanted you to know what I think of our reporters today. They report the mundane stuff that is going on in our city and world, and neglect the important things that they should be reporting about. Sharon Davis

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

The fight to end cancer

Taking the gloves off

‘White collar’ professionals training at Kingsway Boxing Club for charity match Aleksander bajrak abajrak@insidetoronto.com The Kingsway Boxing Club, hidden on an industrial side street at 22 Jutland Rd., is home to an atypical clientele these days: the corporate business community. Fitted with headgear, boxing gloves and boots, up to 10 “white collar” leaders – with little to no prior fighting experience – are training at the gym in preparation for Fight to End Cancer (FTEC) Saturday, May 31. At the annual event they will each be pitted against each other in a boxing match sanctioned by Boxing Ontario to raise funds for high-priority cancer research at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. “I wanted to partner up with a foundation that directly impacts our community,” said Kingsway Boxing’s Jennifer Huggins, an Etobicoke native and the founder and executive director of FTEC. “We’re basically giving back to the hospital, and it’s working towards a cure for the disease.” third year It is the third round for the FTEC, which has donated more than $160,000 for Princess Margaret since 2011 thanks to the support of a flurry of sponsors from Bay Street. Huggins’ project was a “segue” from her careers as a senior boxing trainer, referee as well as a magician’s assistant and entrepreneur. She noted there are many parallels with boxing and business. “Boxing is a very reactionary sport, and what I mean by that is with for every action there is a consequence,” Huggins said. “Both the corporate and boxing world are full of risks, and the only way you can counter that is to establish confidence, and have better intuition and reflexes.” Under the direction of Huggins and fellow head coach Virgil Barrow, the members of the 2014 Fight Team undergo a rigorous six-month introduction to the techniques of ‘Olympic-style’ boxing – training that culminates in the fight that consists of a rapid three rounds in six minutes. Because it’s a tough, rigorous regimen and a short training period, Huggins says there is a risk of participants dropping out weeks

Residents, dog and cat make it out of burning home near The East Mall TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Two residents, their German Shepherd and black cat safely escaped a fire that quickly engulfed their Robinglade Drive home Saturday night. Firefighters responded to the two-alarm call at a home in The East Mall and Rathburn Road area around 10 p.m. March 29. The fire began in the kitchen, but quickly “spread into the attic and then through the roof,” Toronto fire District Chief Stephan Powell said. Firefighters rescued one cat. Powell said he was not aware of the status of the four other cats believed to live in the home. One of the residents reportedly ran back into the burning home to rescue the dog. Powell urged residents against running back into a blaze. “People should never go back into their house. Pets have a way of getting out on their own.”

The Toronto Automobile Club visits the Humber Hotel, on the north side of Lake Shore Blvd. W. in Humber Bay, ca. 1903

Toronto’s elite explored the countryside with the Toronto Automobile Club T

oday, 1.2 million cars are registered in Toronto, and these cars can travel on 5,617 kilometres of roads, all paved. But in 1903, Toronto had only 178 registered cars and a mere 418 kilometres of roads, with only 48 kilometres paved. Cars were still a relatively new phenomenon, and a luxury only the rich could afford. The Toronto Automobile Club, a forerunner to the CAA, was established in 1903 by a group of men from Toronto’s elite, including John Craig Eaton. Outings to explore the countryside became a popular “sport” in high society circles, and this photo portrays one such excursion to the Humber Bay area of Etobicoke. Eaton is not in this photo, but his good friend, William Dobie, is driving a Pierce Arrow, the second car from the right. The cars are stopped, facing west, on what is now Lake Shore

denise harris history corner

Boulevard West. The road’s muddy conditions ably demonstrate why road improvement was one of the auto club’s main goals. The white stucco building behind the cars was built by John McDowell in the 1850s as the Royal Oak Inn, named after a great old oak tree around which he erected the inn’s verandah. He died soon after the hotel opened, and his wife, Margaret, became the innkeeper, followed by their son, William. When William died in 1877, the inn was sold to Octavius Hicks, a man of many talents who I will tell you about in a later column. A subsequent owner changed the inn’s name to the Humber Hotel and, by 1903, Kenneth Huff was the proprietor. Behind Dobie’s car

you can see a “Railway Crossing” sign, alerting the public to the single-track of the Toronto and Mimico Electric Railway, a streetcar line that had operated along the north side of the road since 1892. The trestle bridges you see to the right of the hotel carried the Grand Trunk Railway over the Humber River and ran immediately behind the hotel. Other goals of the Toronto Automobile Club were to build more roads and to increase the speed limit from eight to 10 miles per hour (12 to 16km/h). Perhaps their members would be pleased to see this same view today, with cars whizzing by on six lanes of the Gardiner Expressway and four on/ off lanes for Lake Shore all at speeds well in excess of 10 miles per hour.

We’ll go out anywhere in the city – hospitals, police stations, people’s homes, or wherever else people are needing our assistance,” said VST Executive Director Bonnie Levine, noting that all 17 police divisions, as well as the Toronto Police Homicide and Sex Assault squads, refer to her staff to such situations. V S T ’s V i c t i m C r i s i s Response Program – which can be accessed 24/7 by calling the Victim Support Line at 416-808-7066 – provides short-term crisis intervention to ensure the victim is safe, emotionally stabilized, and connected to the appropriate support services. “We’re there to provide some emotional grounding, but also to address a lot of the practical needs – from retrieving a traumatized child’s

Kids are getting into relationships and they really need to know what a good relationship is, what a bad relationship is, and how to get help if they’re in an abusive one.” VST has recruited a team of youth leaders who help design the workshops and host #TEARTalk on Twitter every Thursday night from 7 to 8 p.m.

School submitted nearly 3,200 works >>>from page 1 Awards are lauded by many as one of the largest, longest-running and most prestigious high school arts and writing competitions, boasting a roster of past winners that includes the likes of Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, and Stephen King. This year – the fourth ESA has entered its students in the competition – saw ESA submit nearly 3,200 pieces to the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards in categories

ranging from poetry, painting, and photography, to architecture, comic art, jewelry, digital art and everything in between. Varey said seeing students’ overwhelming success at this year’s Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is a rewarding experience. “We already have a really strong sense of where we are in the world, but the percentages are still extraordinary. In the first round, we won 50.5 per cent of all awards given outside the U.S. – so, on the whole planet, we

won more than half awards in our little school. It’s amazing,” he said. The June 6 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards ceremony will take place at Carnegie Hall in New York City. On Friday, April 11, ESA will launch Art Talk 2 at 6:45 p.m. in the auditorium at OCADU, 100 McCaul St., where students will speak about their connection to creativity and what they are making. Admission is free and everyone is welcome.

Transportation minister Glen Murray receives Sardine Award TTCriders and supporters presented the inaugural TTC Sardine Award to Ontario Minister of Transportation Glen Murray for failing to fund the TTC. “Transportation minister Glen Murray received the TTC Sardines Award today because the Liberal government has, for years, refused to regularly contribute fair funding to the TTC, even though it has had the power to do so,” said TTCriders member Jennifer Huang in a press release Friday, March 28. Dressed as sardines, nearly 100 TTC users travelled by streetcar from Queen’s Park subway station to Murray’s constituency office on Parliament Street to deliver the award that consisted of a poster featuring photos from a competition held by TTCrider. The photos were selected because they best reflected the overcrowding experienced on the TTC due to

On-street parking switch begins April 15 If you have an on-street parking permit, don’t switch sides until April 15. On-street parking takes place on one side of the street for six months, then switches to the other side of the street for the next six months. But because of the build

up of ice and snow between parked cars, it is not safe to switch sides until it has melted, a City of Toronto release said. The city is asking residents to delay moving their vehicles to the other side of the street for parking until April 15.

The release said Toronto Police Service will honour this delay and ticketing until April 16 at 9 a.m. However, vehicles parked in a hazardous manner, creating obstructions or hampering the flow of traffic, could be ticketed or towed.

record ridership levels and the province’s failure to fund the service. The award also consisted of a platter of sardines on a fish tray. Supporters also held a rally outside Murray’s office before delivering the award. Representatives from TTCriders, the University of Toronto Scarborough Student Union and the Ontario Chinese Seniors Association spoke out about the problem of sardine-like conditions on

the TTC and the impact of fare hikes on Torontonians who struggle to make ends meet. Murray was not present to accept the award, so it was left at the door step of his constituency office. Founded in 2011, TTCriders is composed of transit users who want better public transit in Toronto.

TTC uses April Fool’s Day to highlight funding concerns A bold new funding strategy announced by the TTC on Tuesday will see stations with less ridership shuttered and sold to developers to construct high-density subway platform condos. TTC chief customer Chris Upfold and communications chief Brad Ross explained the plan to TTC users in a short web video. Chester and Bessarion stations were among those on the chopping block, and the plan which would save the TTC “hundreds of dollars” in operating expenses. If it all sounds like a joke, that’s because the “plan” was part of an April Fool’s Day gag intended to highlight something the TTC believes is no laughing matter: the lack of stable, long term funding for the transit commission. Service changes announced by TTC The TTC also announced

w

rahul gupta TO in TRANSIT (for real) changes to multiple lines, which will see increased vehicle frequency on some routes and reduction or outright cancellation of service on others. The changes, which took effect this week are part of a regular TTC service review. They include a new express bus route for Jane Street and all-week service to Pearson International Airport via the 52A Lawrence West bus. The TTC has also added more subway trips on the Yonge-University-Spadina line, while the 29 Dufferin bus will have marginally more frequent service on both weekends and weekdays. For a complete list of the changes announced and more information, visit www. ttc.ca.

commutes focus of debate wStudent A group of aspiring youth political leaders were set to take part in a debate this week to bring attention to student commutes. Representatives from the four major provincial parties were expected to take part in From the Boardroom to the Dorm Room, scheduled for yesterday, at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs. The debate was organized by the Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance and intended to stimulate discussion on improving commute times for university students in the GTA, which, according to a press release for the event, often exceeds the region’s daily average of 82 minutes per day.

EMP presents Broadway’s Spring into Song Etobicoke Musical Productions (EMP) is ready to Spring Into Song with its latest show featuring selections from Broadway’s best. Unlike anything the company has done before, the Spring Into Song concert is “blooming” with musical numbers and an all-star cast featuring “perennial” EMP performers as well as fresh

new members, said seasoned Artistic Director Allison Beula, who will direct the show alongside Musical Director Mark Peterson. “The beauty of a cabaret format is that this is an unbelievable chance to custom tailor musical pieces that are just perfect for the individuals involved,” Beula said in a statement. “It’s a real thrill to

get this opportunity.” The stage is thus set for a series of talented duos, trios, solos, ensembles and quartets to showcase their impressive vocals and harmonies, Peterson said. “At just the second rehearsal, we knew we had something special here,” he said. EMP presents Spring Into Song on a limited, three-show

run over the Victoria Day weekend at The Assembly Hall, 1 Col. Samuel Smith Park Dr. Show schedule is Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m., Saturday, May 17 at 8 p.m. and a Sunday, May 18 matinee performance at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $23 and available at www.e-m-p.ca or via the box office at 416-248-0410.

Help! I need to find a summer camp As summer approaches fast so does the pressure for us parents to look for a Summer Day Camp for our children. As busy parents we have to decide in short order the kind of Camp we would like to send our child to. As well, we have to find a way to balance between our children’s needs and the pocketbook. Here are a few things you should consider when looking for a Summer Day Camp: a. Mix of fun & learning: Camps that offer opportunities for the child to do things differently from regular school

in a relaxed atmosphere are a great place to be. Typically these camps offer weekly field trips, a balance of outdoor (active) and indoor (contemplative) time including entertainers/performers, learning a language/subject, music, game play and more. b. Meet children’s needs: Experienced camp staff with a background in early childhood education ensure that planned activities address the physical, social, cognitive and emotional needs of children. Additionally, camps that have low student/teacher ratios appropriate

to the age group ensure that a child’s individual needs are not lost. c. Health & Safety: Camps that offer snacks (in the AM and PM) and a nutritious lunch ensure actively burned calories are being supplemented with appropriate healthy food intake. Camps that have staff with appropriate health and criminal background checks give a peace of mind that your child is in good hands. d. All-inclusive, hassle free, flexible: Camp fees that clearly indicate all the costs upfront and are reasonable as well should merit consideration. Camps that

allow you to enroll on a weekly basis (pick and choose the weeks you would like to send your child to camp), choose between extended on regular day will help with your pocketbook as well. With summer coming soon, I encourage you to consider a Learning Jungle Summer Camp. Visit, review and reserve a spot online at www.learningjungle. com/camp2014. We assure you that we will work hard to make it a memorable experience for your child! We are offering a discount for all students that enrol this year. Every child that enrols at the Learn-

ing Jungle Camp at 100 Allanhurst Dr., Etobicoke will get a one-time credit of $75 towards their camp fees. Visit www.learningjungle.com for more information.

VOLUNTEER WEEK

Seniors who volunteer are HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER Over 13.3 million volunteers across Canada will be celebrated for their contributions during Canada's 70th Annual National Volunteer Week, April 6-13, 2014. Canada's senior citizen volunteers have even more to celebrate as studies show volunteering improves their health. “Canadian retirees who regularly give their time to others experience a number of increased health benefits compared to those seniors who don't,” says Ben Gottlieb, a University of Guelph psychology professor who has been researching the positive health benefits of volunteering in seniors. “Some of the health benefits include enhanced fitness and reduced physical limitations, better lung function, less arthritis pain, better cardiovascular function and increased happiness, energy

and vitality.” A 2009 study shows that having a strong sense of purpose in life is associated with lower mortality rates and volunteer work was listed as one way seniors can find this sense of purpose. A 2011 study found that, when compared to non-volunteers, older

people who dedicated modest amounts of time to volunteer activities benefited from a reduced risk of hypertension. “Today's seniors lead very full lives and they want to give back so their skills and expertise can benefit their communities,” says Erin Spink, past president of the Ontario branch of the Professional Administrators of Volunteer Resources. “The many health benefits associated with volunteering enhances the meaningful and rewarding life experience volunteering provides.” Over 1.8 million Canadian seniors collectively volunteered more than 372 million hours in 2010, according to Statistics Canada. Many of them say that they hear about volunteer opportunities through family, friends, volunteer centres and online at volunteer.ca. – newscanada.com


VOLUNTEER WEEK Soup kitchen: While soup kitchens may not be best suited to younger volunteers, middle school students and high schoolers can learn a lot when volunteering at neighborhood soup kitchens. Soup kitchens may open youngsters' eyes to the reality that not everyone is as fortunate as they are, instilling a sense of obligation to the less fortunate that can serve kids well for the rest of their lives. Nursing home: Residents of

Ideal volunteer opportunities

FOR YOUNGSTERS Youngsters are often enthusiastic about volunteering, and that enthusiasm only increases when kids find the right volunteer opportunities. The following are a handful of places that typically offer volun-

teer opportunities tailor-made for youngsters who want to give back to their communities. Nature cleanup: Kids can join large groups to clear beaches and parks of litter and debris, all the

while spending a few hours outdoors in the sun. Such projects keep kids on their feet as well, providing a healthy dose of exercise for youngsters who may not be into organized sports.

St. Joseph’s Health Centre Volunteer Services

Thank You Volunteers! This year volunteers like you dedicated thousands of hours towards giving our patients a better experience. Your energy and skills are vital to our continued success, while your enthusiasm and gift of time are a genuine inspiration to our patients and staff. Thank you for all that you do. We couldn’t do it without you! To learn more about volunteering: volunteers@ stjoe.on.ca

Celebrating National Volunteer Week April 6-12, 2014

nursing homes may experience newfound vigor when getting a visit from a child. Parents can contact local nursing homes or communities to learn about volunteer opportunities for children. Animal shelter: Local animal shelters and veterinary hospitals often have ample volunteer opportunities available to youngsters with a love of animals. Some shelters may not allow kids under the age of 18 to have direct contact

with the animals, so parents should inquire ahead of time before dropping kids off at the shelter or animal hospital. Religious organization: Many youth are likely to volunteer through a religious organization. Such organizations, including churches, synagogues and mosques, are involved in a variety of volunteer opportunities aimed at kids of all ages and interests. – MS

Victims of Crime info fair set for April 9 Rexdale Women’s Centre is set to host an upcoming community information fair to coincide with National Victims of Crime Awareness Week next week, April 6 to 12. The goal of the fair – which takes place Wednesday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rexdale Hub, 21 Panorama Ct. – is to raise awareness about issues faced by local victims of crime and the community services, programs and laws in place to help victims and their families.

“In our community, there is a strong need to enhance knowledge and understanding about victim of crime issues and community resources available to victims and their families,� Saadia Akram-Pall, director of programming at Rexdale Women’s Centre, said in a statement. “There is little information available to newcomers in their own language and presented in a culturally relevant manner. Through this community infor-

mation fair, we will raise awareness about victim of crime issues and resources available in the community.� The fair, which is being funded by the Canadian Justice Department, will also recognize the ongoing efforts of countless volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to help victims of crime.

Metrolinx is proposing to electrify the UP Express service beginning at the future UP Express Union Station in the City of Toronto and terminating at the future UP Express Pearson Station (at Terminal 1, Toronto Pearson International Airport) in the City of Mississauga. The project involves the electrification of approximately 25 kilometres of track along the Union Station GO Rail Corridor and Kitchener GO Rail Corridor to Highway 427, where the route then follows the new UP Express spur line (under construction) into Pearson Airport (see key map below). The purpose of the project is to convert the UP Express service from diesel to electric power, which will be achieved through a Traction Electrification System that will provide electrical power to the trains by means of a power distribution system. An Overhead Contact System (wiring system) will be suspended from a number of support structures (i.e. portals, cantilevers) placed along and over the track. Two paralleling stations and a new maintenance facility are also required. In addition, a separate Environmental Assessment study is being carried out by Hydro One for the proposed Traction Power Substation, in accordance with the Class EA for Minor Transmission Facilities. Electrification of the UP Express is part of The Big Move, Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan, which will dramatically improve how people move in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Funding for electrification is dependent on the Metrolinx Investment Strategy. THE PROCESS The environmental impact of this transit project was assessed and an Environmental Project Report prepared in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects and Metrolinx Undertakings. The EPR for the UP Express Electrification project is now available for a 30-day review period starting April 1, 2014 on the project website (http://www.gotransit.com/electrification/en/default.aspx) and at the following locations: Ministry of the Environment Environmental Approvals Branch 2 St. Clair Avenue West Floor 12A Toronto, ON M4V 1L5 tel: 416-314-8001 or 1-800-461-6290 Monday to Friday: 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. City of Toronto City Clerk’s Office Toronto City Hall 100 Queen Street West 13th Floor, West Toronto, ON M5H 2N2 tel: 416-392-8016 Monday to Friday: 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Bike Share gets new owner CLEAN TORONTO TOGETHER RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com

The private-sector operator of newly christened Bike Share Toronto is promising better availability of vehicles and more reliable customer ser vice for the coming year. Alta Bicycle Share, which is now running the bike sharing program’s day-to-day operations, revealed the new moniker and logo this week, which officially replaces the original BIXI moniker. The new entity, which will answer to the Toronto Parking Authority (TPA), will continue to offer short-term

bike rentals at the former BIXI station locations. It has already launched its annual membership drive and as an incentive is offering lower rates and shorter terms in an effort to attract more subscribers. Improving service will remain the immediate objective of Bike Share Toronto, said the service’s new general manager Scott Hancock. But he cautioned against hoping for wholesale expansion of the bike share program which currently has less than 100 stations in the downtown core, but none north of Bloor Street. “Improving what’s in front

of us has to be the focus,” said Hancock during an interview this past Monday, one day before the service officially launched. “It’s easy to get distracted by getting bigger, but right now let’s just make it better and create some solid operating parameters to grow the memberships and number of rides. “If that happens then you’re in a good position to talk about expansion.” A l o n g w i t h To r o n t o, Oregon-based Alta runs eight other bike shares in the U.S. and Australia, including in New York City and Chicago.

Ball hockey pioneer kicks off girls league Etobicoke gymnast scores

at championship Spring season launches next month for players six to 13 years medals Justin Karstadt, a 16-yeartion, earned the silver medal NORM NELSON nnelson@insidetoronto.com Etobicoke girls will have a chance to play a spring season of ball hockey at the West Mall outdoor rink. For girls six to 13 years of age, the youth league, divided into two age groups, will be held on Tuesday nights and run for about eight weeks – from the beginning of May until the end of June. Registration is $80. The youth league is being kicked off by the Toronto Wo m e n’s B a l l Ho c k e y Association (TWBHA) which currently operates two leagues in the Toronto area for players 14 and over – based out of Malton Arena in Mississauga in

This is about using the outdoor pad at West Mall as we did when we started our women’s league 30 years ago.

– Judy Ilcio the west and at Scarborough’s Leacock Arena in the east. The TWBHA was started 30 years ago by Etobicoke’s Judy Ilcio – at the West Mall location where she is now starting the youth league. “This is about using the outdoor pad at West Mall as we did when we started our women’s league 30 years ago,” said Ilcio, a life-long Etobicoke

resident from the Markland Wood neighbourhood who graduated Burnhamthorpe Collegiate Institute. “A lot of these girls are already playing in ice hockey leagues so it’s a good opportunity for them to continue to evolve some of their hockey skills,” she said. As far as the number of teams, she said “it really depends on interest and what we get from a sign-up standpoint.” With Toronto’s abnormally long winter finally easing its grip, she said enquiries about the new youth league have really started coming in to the league. As for the timing of a new youth league, three decades after the adult league

got going, she said, “I happen to have the time, it’s a pet project, it was something that I wanted to do.” A pioneer in the sport for women, Ilcio, after kicking off the TWBHA in 1983, went on to serve as the first female president of the Ontario Ball Hockey Association in 1983 and then played an integral role in the development of the Canadian Ball Hockey Association. The adult league’s competitive division has welcomed a steady stream of Canada’s gold-medal-winning Olympic players over the past three decades.

old Etobicoke gymnast who attends Grade 11 at Silverthorn Collegiate, picked up a couple of medals from the junior Pan Am gymnastics championships held in Brazil March 26 to 30. On the last day of competition, on Sunday, March 30, the elite gymnast, competing in the individual competi-

on the pommel horse. He also finished sixth in both floor and rings events. The previous day Karstadt, a member of Mississauga’s Futures Gymnastics, helped the Canadian junior men’s team to the bronze medal in the team event behind host Brazil and the gold-medalwinning U.S. team.

Patriots take on Georgetown The Etobicoke-based Toronto Lakeshore Patriots had the chance to sweep their provincial junior A best-of-seven, semifinal series last night against the host Georgetown Raiders. The Patriots, who play out of Etobicoke’s Westwood

Arenas, won their previous two best-of-seven series 4-1 over the North York Rangers and 4-0 over the Toronto Jr. Canadiens.
