TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com The massive upscale entertainment complex billed as Woodbine Live! its developer forecast to create 9,000 new jobs is dead. But it could move forward in the future said Woodbine Entertainment Group, stressing it is presently focused on a strategy to become the city’s casino operator in order to save 7,500 jobs across the company after the Ontario government cancelled its Slots at Racetrack program. The program gave the Ontario horse industry 20 per cent of slot profits equivalent to $345 million a year. Area Councillor Doug Ford also insisted another similar project could live yet. The $1 billion Woodbine Live! development that was to be built at Woodbine Racetrack in north Etobicoke included an unprecedented tax break over two decades worth $120 million. Baltimore-based The Cordish Companies’ designed six-million square foot development was to have included a full-service hotel, a live theatre venue, retail stores, outdoor markets, restaurants, theatres, a winter skating park and canal similar to Rockefeller Plaza in New York, and business office district. Toronto council hailed the grand vision in 2008. “It’s going to make Rexdale the new Rosedale of Toronto,” then-area councillor Rob Ford said.

Etobicoke’s most wanted criminals the target of Toronto police’s Catch-22 program CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Many more eyes will be on the lookout for south Etobicoke’s most wanted from now on, thanks to a new weekly police program called Catch-22 Tuesday. Launched just this week, Catch-

22 Tuesday will see the name, picture, and alleged crime of one of Etobicoke’s most wanted broadcast over both traditional and new medias each week, said Det. Patrick McGrade of 22 Division. The hope, he added, is that someone in the community will recognize these people with outstanding warrants

out for their arrests, and contact police with information about their whereabouts. “Our Twitter account has been up and active for more than a year now and our Facebook page has been there for some time, too, so we’re steadily building up our followers locally. We’re hoping that, through

this program, we can identify these wanted people and that people who know them will get in touch with them and have them call us and make arrangements to surrender themselves,” McGrade said. “Ideally what we’re hoping to have is a friend of these guys is going to say, ‘holy >>>SUCCESS, page 8

Bridge centre show its cards

Groups seek temporary space during year-long Olympium renovations CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

F

or many local card sharps, the Etobicoke Bridge Centre at the Olympium is a home away from home – it’s where they come to think critically, interact socially, sharpen their skills, and test their mettle against some of the best local players. That’s why it’s so important to the centre’s owner, Steve Overholt, that the Etobicoke Bridge Centre (EBC) itself find a new home in central Etobicoke come this summer, when the Etobicoke Olympium is set to close its doors for 12 months of renovations in preparation for the 2015 Pan Am Games. With the year-long closure beginning July 1 looming, both EBC and fellow American Contract Bridge League franchisee Lee’s Bridge Etobicoke are looking for a temporary space their players can gather and call home in the interim. Because for many of those players, bridge isn’t just a game, it’s a lifestyle. ‘tough, complex game’ “It’s a tough, complex game, but that’s what keeps people coming back. You can play it badly pretty quickly, but if you want to be a good bridge player, you have to put in a lot of time,” Overholt said Monday during EBC’s popular, open duplicate bridge game in the Etobicoke Olympium’s lounge – one of four sanctioned games the centre runs each week. “Bridge is a slow, long learn, but it’s ultimately incredibly rewarding – and addictive. People get very passionate about bridge and take it very seriously. If you say to them, ‘it’s just a game,’ you might be surprised by the answer they give you.” While EBC has long been a longtime fixture in Etobicoke, running out of the Olympium for the last 30-plus years, it’s only been

in the last three – since Overholt, a retired teacher, took over the centre – that a full teaching program for beginners has been offered. For relative newcomers to the game like Theresa Bryson, Janet Zwarick and Sandra Chivers, the teaching element was a muchappreciated addition to the centre. “I’m a perpetual beginner,” Bryson laughed Monday, shortly before the lesson began. “I’m learning that there’s so many layers to the game, that you have to just keep learning.” And key to retaining all that learning, added Zwarick, is playing as much as possible: “You have to play. If you come to these classes and you don’t play, it’s like sitting in a classroom being told how to drive a car, but never getting a hold of a steering wheel and actually driving – only it’s a lot easier to learn to drive a car than it is to play bridge.” While Overholt led nearly 20 students in lessons on one side of the Olympium lounge on Monday afternoon, on the other side of the lounge – in what the ladies jokingly referred to as the ‘shark’s pen’ – nearly 60 much more experienced players partook in Etobicoke’s largest open (no membership required) duplicate bridge game. Among them, former Canadian Bridge Champion David Colbert, who won the esteemed title back in 1993. For Colbert, the EBC games keep his game in shape in preparation for the six or seven tournaments he regularly travels to each year across the continent. Next week, he’ll head to Florida for a tournament. In April, the competition will bring him to Tennessee. “I’ve been playing since 1976,” he said, noting that he began playing bridge competitively as a university student, at a game hosted regularly at the University of Toronto’s Hart House. “I was hooked by the competition of it – the exactness and the level of

depth. It’s an equalizing game, a tough game, and an infinite game to learn. Even I still make mistakes.” With so many players – from beginners to masters – relying on the centre for their weekly bridge fix, Overholt said he’s anxious to find a new home to settle into. The EBC runs Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons, so rental space is required from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on those days, plus from 6 to 11 p.m. on Tuesday nights to accommodate Lee’s Bridge. Overholt said the centre’s ideal

location would be 3,000 square feet of accessible and affordable space located in central Etobicoke, with parking to accommodate for about 75 to 80 cars. looking for space Anyone with suitable space interested in renting to both bridge clubs is asked to contact Steve Overholt at etobicokebridge@ gmail.com or 647-897-6179. As the game of bridge itself, Overholt couldn’t help but extoll the virtues of “the chess of card games.”

“Bridge is great gymnastics for the mind. I cannot think of anything better for your mind than bridge, because it pretty much has everything you could want – deduction, reasoning, analysis, problem solving,” he said, encouraging those interested in learning the game to sign up for EBC’s lessons. “Every hand is an adventure. You can spend as much time as you want getting better at bridge, because you’re always learning.” For more information about the EBC, its learning program and its game schedule, go to www.etobicokebridge.com

Maximizing the impact of public consultations

A

s the city-wide tour of transit consultations makes its way through various parts of Toronto this week and next, it’s important to reinforce the potential value these community gatherings have. When we take advantage of these opportunities, we build better communities. The Feeling Congested? series is designed to garner public feedback on transporour view tation priorities and funding options. The series kicked off in Speak up now York on Monday. Additionally, according to chief planner on transit to Jennifer Keesmaat, more than 1,500 people have already shared shape future their opinions online. It is admittedly challenging to share feedback for projects that are years, even decades away from being realized. But as we seek to connect our communities, this stage is an important one. It has impact. For evidence, look no further to what happened last week on another transit-related issue: the construction of the Eglinton Avenue light-rail line. Metrolinx confirmed at a public meeting last Thursday that after reviewing feedback, a station at Ferrand Drive in North York would remain in the plans. Initially, there were plans to scrap the station. Ferrand Drive is in Flemingdon Park, one of the city’s priority neighbourhoods whose dense population would benefit from a transit stop. The construction of the Aga Khan Museum nearby was also a factor in keeping the station, said a Metrolinx spokesperson. These are the things that happen when people speak up – here, it helped shape and ultimately improve a critical piece of transportation infrastructure. Not bad. Hopefully the Feeling Congested? series can yield those kinds of ideas that shape our transit future. At the York Civic Centre Monday, the first session, from 4 to 6 p.m., drew a sparse turnout. But it’s apparent one common concern that’s surfacing is how the potential funding tools – percentage of a property tax, parking levies, fuel taxes, highway tolls, among others – would be applied and to whom and for how long. These are critical questions. These are conversations we must have. And it’s good they’re happening now. These are conversations that don’t need to be restricted to election time. So, we must understand that the contributions we make to our communities today can have far-reaching impacts. It’s how communities grow, evolve and prosper. newsroom

To the editor: Re: ‘Stintz surprised strollers have become an issue on TTC,’ insidetoronto.com It is obvious that TTC chair Karen Stintz has not ridden the TTC lately during rush hour where riders must perform an acrobatic act in order to balance around the convoy of giant strollers that are allowed to encompass the bus aisle. If we are not being sandwiched against other riders, we are struggling not to fall over a sleeping child. In spite of that, I have witnessed mothers with nasty attitudes toward other riders who have dared lean on their carriages. Stintz “never considered the use of strollers to be a problem” but on behalf of many a TTC patron who has had to squeeze by an oversized stroller; who has had their feet run over by the stroller tires; who are forced to stand when the stroller blocks an available seat; I can confirm – it is a problem.

Legal system a popular weapon in Toronto politics

I

t’s been a big winter for the left-wing antiRob-Ford illuminati. They nearly toppled our virtuous, football-loving mayor for the crime of loving football too much. Fresh from that near-totalvictory, the skulking fiends saw fruits of their other investigations – in the form of a compliance audit of Mayor Ford’s 2010 election campaign. This is serious business: the same pack of villains saw another sometimeFord-ally, Giorgio Mammoliti, facing prosecution for his own alleged electoral sins in 2010. If you listen to the mayor and his allies, the scoundrels are engaged in an unfounded, partisan and political attack on democratically elected politicians, the like of which has never been seen. And if you believe that,

THE CITY

david nickle

you haven’t spent much time watching Toronto politics. Because while it’s true that this latest round of legal challenges brought forward have come from citizens who it’s fair to say don’t agree with the direction in which Ford is taking the city – using the courts to win fights you can’t win at the ballot box is not an exclusively left-wing tactic. In the 2006-2010 term, it was councillors on the left who were in the spotlight. Former councillors Sandra Bussin and Adrian Heaps both incurred stiff legal fees to deal with issues

while in office. When the two councillors – along with Mammoliti, then an ally of Mayor David Miller – had their expenses reimbursed, future Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday took the city to court, and won. Holyday’s move was a matter of principle, to be sure – he didn’t think taxpayers should be reimbursing legal fees for members of council – but it’s hard not to see it as political as well. After all, those three were allies of left-of-centre Mayor Miller: Holyday was then firmly entrenched in the right-wing opposition. All of this is – or should be – beside the point. The reality is that everything that goes on having to do with politicians is political. Everyone who comes to city hall does so with an agenda — whether improving their neigh-

bourhood, improving the lot of the disadvantaged, or finding the gravy that’s costing taxpaying Torontonians an arm and a leg. Sometimes, their agenda is more visceral: putting politicians with whom they disagree on these points out of office. The legal system might be a weapon of choice for those players from time to time. But whatever the motive anyone has for engaging it, once engaged the system has a way of sorting things out. And if politicians are found to be in breach, they really only have one enemy to blame – themselves. n David Nickle is The Guardian’s City Hall reporter. His column appears every Thursday.

Success of program in the east end hoped to be replicated in 22 Division >>>from page 1 crap, they’ve got your picture and everything out there, you better turn yourself in.’” And that’s precisely what happened over at 55 Division recently – the unit that hosts the Wanted Wednesday program that Catch-22 is being modeled after – McGrade said. “From what I understand, the guy just walked in to 55 Division and said, ‘Hey, I’m your Wanted Wednesday,’” he added, noting that just last month, 55 Division celebrated a perfect arrest rate for the program, arresting all three of the alleged criminals profiled on Wanted Wednesday. McGrade said the hope is to duplicate that success in Etobicoke with Catch-22 – starting this week, with the program’s first installment. Twenty-two Division’s first Catch-22 most wanted is 25-year-old Marko Tojcic, of no-fixed address. Also wanted by the RCMP, Tojcic is accused of kidnapping a 25-year-old man in 2011 and allegedly beating him

repeatedly over a period of five days. The victim sustained numerous serious injuries, and according to the RCMP, had to spend a “significant amount of time in the hospital due to injuries received from the incident.” Tojcic is wanted by Toronto police on charges of: kidnapping; forcible confinement; attempted murder; aggravated assault; robbery; break and enter; assault with a weapon;

and possession of a prohibited device. “This incident occurred in our division and we have a hope that the person is still living in the division, as it’s the last known address that we believe he was at,” McGrade said, warning anyone who may come across Tojcic not to approach him, but to call 911 immediately. “We’re hoping to every week put out something similar to what we’ve done this week, and we’re also going to keep the public advised of when we locate these guys through the public’s assistance.” For more information on the Catch-22 Tuesday program, visit the 22 Division Facebook page or follow @ the22news on Twitter. Anyone with information about Tojcic’s whereabouts is urged to contact police at 416-808-2200, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).

BEYOND ROSES

Add alternative flowers to this year’s bouquet Behind only Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day is the second most popular day to give flowers to a loved one. Thousands upon thousands of roses are imported from areas of South America in time for Valentine’s Day, and the rose has become the unofficial flower of this day. Those who have given a bouquet of roses before might want to try someting new. Instead of giving a dozen longstemmed roses, gift-givers can explore other beautiful flower options available. Red roses may signify love, but just about any other crimson-hued flower can also represent the strong emotions felt for a sweetheart. When visiting the florist to have a bouquet or arrangement of flowers assembled for Valentine’s Day, consider mixing and matching some other flowers for an arrangement with flair and originality.

Dahlias Named after Anders Dahl, a Swedish botanist, these flowers are native to

Mexico but actually prefer cooler growing conditions. Dahlias come in all sizes, from small blooms of a few inches to much larger blossoms that may be a foot in width. They are related to the sunflower, daisy and chrysanthemum. The Dahlia usually is not a scented flower, which may work for people who are especially sensitive to scented blooms.

Carnations Carnations have the scientific name of Dianthus, which means “flowers of God.” Carnations are particularly coveted because they can last long after being cut, which makes them popular in floral arrangements. Dark red carnations are said to convey affection and deep love.

Columbine Columbine is native to North America, Asia and Europe. It has lacy-looking leaves and bell-shaped flowers. While columbines are traditionally used as garden plants to attract hummingbirds, a few blooms added to a floral arrangement can brighten up the design.

Chrysanthemums

Poppies

Also known as mums, chrysanthemums are versatile flowers that symbolize optimism, joy, fidelity and love. Although mums are traditionally yellow, they can also be white and red and other hybrid hues..

Low-maintenance and usually easy to grow, poppies’ vivid red color and large blooms add to their aesthetic appeal.

Peonies Peonies are herbaceous perennial plants that produce large, often fragrant flowers ranging in color from red to white. Peonies are highly prized by Eastern cultures, and in China they are known as the “flower of riches and honor.”

Cardinals Cardinals are long, tubular flowers that grow wild throughout North America. Tall and dramatic, these red flowers can add drama to any floral arrangement. The rose may be traditional for Valentine’s Day, but gifting with a variety of red-hued flowers may add visual appeal and affordability to arrangements.

The truth about Valentine’s Day Every February 14th people around the world exchange gifts, chocolates and romantic greetings for a day set aside for lovers. Many traditions are followed, all in the name of St. Valentine. Still, people may not understand why such customs are upheld. Much of the history of Valentine’s Day and St. Valentine himself is shrouded in mystery, and much of what’s widely accepted is inaccurate. To set the record straight, here are some facts about the holiday. • Valentine’s Day is believed to have originated from a celebration in Rome during the fifth century. This celebration paid tribute to St. Valentine, a Catholic priest. Other historians surmise it was a way to “Christianize” the pagan holiday of Lupercalia, which was a fertility festival. Included in the traditions were boys and girls drawing names from a box and exchanging gifts. • The Catholic Church acknowledges at least three different saints named Valentine or Val-

entinus. • All of the stories surrounding St. Valentine -- whether they are disputed or not -- paint him as a sympathetic and heroic individual. • Valentine’s Day greetings have been popular from the Middle Ages onward, though they have been usually verbal in nature. • The oldest known written valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. • Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. • Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are the most popular holidays to give flowers. • According to Hallmark, women purchase 85 percent of all valentines. • According to the Greeting

Card Association, an estimated one billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year behind Christmas. • Candy was among the earliest Valentine’s Day gifts and remains a popular gift today. • Some tales suggest that the type of bird a girl watches on Valentine’s Day predicts her future husband. A bluebird indicates a happy man, while a sparrow indicates a poor man. • In Medieval times, girls consumed unusual foods on Valentine’s Day in the belief it would make them dream of their future husbands.

>>>from page 1 Jane Holmes said Wednesday. But Woodbine still intends to develop its vision for its land and is in talks with many potential partners, which could ultimately mean entering into a new partnership with Cordish, or with another developer, Holmes said. “The government cancelled the Slots at Racetrack program. We’re focused on the long-term sustainability of our company,” Holmes said. “One key component of that is to have a casino at Woodbine. We already have the horseracing and the gaming. “That sustainability is critical to (saving) our 7,500 jobs, 5,000 jobs just at Woodbine, which is 10 per cent of the employment base in Rexdale. The area has lost 26 per cent of its labour force in the past 10 years.” Woodbine has 3,000 slot machines, has been recently refurbished and has an entire floor now dedicated to electronic gaming, she said.

���For all intents and purposes, we are a casino,” Holmes said. “We need the city to allow the willing (casino) host to be our site.” Cordish spokesperson Ashley Miller concurred Wednesday the end of Woodbine Live! is related to Woodbine’s interest in a casino. An Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission proposal would allow a casino at Woodbine, instead of or in addition to, a casino in downtown Toronto. “As a result of the 2012 OLG announcement regarding the privatization of gaming in Ontario, and in order to give Woodbine maximum flexibility to be responsive to this directive, the parties amicably agreed not to proceed with Woodbine Live! at this time,” Miller said in an email. Cordish and Woodbine had not taken advantage of the tax break, the first of its kind offered by the city after Toronto’s economic development staff deemed Woodbine Live! to be “transformative”.

Local councillor Doug Ford, meanwhile, said he was confident redevelopment would go ahead — and under the terms and conditions of the original Tax Increment Equivalent Grant (TIEG), which expires in 2014. “In my opinion there’s going to be developers lined up from here to Timbuktu — it’s the only large piece of property for development in the city,” he said. “There’s going to be a lineup.” Ford said council will have to approve transferring the TIEG from The Cordish Companies to Woodbine, but he said that an improving world economy would make the project more viable. And Ford said that the best way to get the project going would be to install a casino at Woodbine. “It’s going to happen with a casino up there,” said Ford. “What we don’t want to see is Mississauga or Markham getting one instead.” ~With files from David Nickle

Nissan at Toronto

high-definition holographic video projection system used to create the illusion of three-dimensional moving images. The fully functional telecommunications system makes it possible for real people to interact with virtual Nissan vehicles when they perform physical gestures. The Nissan vehicle will appear to be a transparent 3D hologram, but it will in fact be something called "Pepper's Ghost," an illusionary technique traditionally used in theatre. Adding to the excitement in the Nissan CIAS booth are special appearances throughout the week by 100th Grey Cup champions, the Toronto Argonauts, and Argos cheerleaders.

The all-new Nissan Versa Note and Resonance concept making national debuts at Canadian International Auto Show

The all-new 2014 Nissan Versa Note, Resonance Concept and JUKE NISMO will make their national debuts at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto (CIAS) on Feb 15. The Versa Note four-door hatchback, with segment-exclusive technology, outstanding fuel economy, smart packaging and class-leading

cargo space, is the fourth of five new models launched by Nissan over 15 months. The Nissan Resonance concept signals the direction of future Nissan crossovers, and the JUKE NISMO is at the forefront of NISMO’s new brand strategy. Nissan’s booth will not only

showcase tangible displays of its vehicle line-up, but also offer visitors an opportunity to connect with the vehicles like never before through its Virtual Showroom 3D Hologram display. Nissan is taking its online virtual showroom experience to the next level with the application of a

The players, cheerleaders and the Grey Cup trophy will be all available for autograph sessions and photo opportunities the first weekend of the auto show. – Metroland Media

Affordable

LUXURY

Kia has raised the small car bar to a new level with the 2014 Forte sedan. This is an economy car, but it doesn’t look like one or drive like one. It looks like Kia has found a way to merge affordability with the increasing demand for luxury in the second generation Forte There will be two engines offered on the Forte, depending on trim level. The LX is equipped with the familiar 1.8-litre inline four-cylinder producing 148 hp and 131 lb/ft of torque with a standard six-speed manual transmission driving the front wheel with a six-speed automatic optional. On the EX and SX trims, this engine has been increased in size to 2.0-litres with gasoline direct injection resulting in a significant increase in power to 173 hp and 154 lb/ft with the six-speed automatic as standard with optional steering wheel mounted paddle shifters for those who care about these kinds of things. A luxury feature which I believe is a first for small cars is the Forte’s available

“FlexSteer� electric power steering that allows the driver to change the ride feel three ways – Comfort, Normal and Sport. FlexSteer is light years away from the first generation of electric steering with its ratchet wrench stiffness. Steering on the Forte is fluid and communicative and the difference between the three modes was noticeable. Kia being Kia, they are constantly honing and retooling their products and that holds true on the 2014 Forte with a revised MacPherson front suspension system with larger bushings. At the back, the torsion beam suspension has been tuned to match the stiffer body platform and the wider stance of the tire footprint. For 2014, the Forte is 5 mm wider, 25 mm lower and wheelbase has been increased to 2,700 mm, just the palate Schreyer needed for the next generation look. The grille retains the signature shape but it has more glam adding to the overall it-looks-luxury image the Forte carries.

The second generation 2014 Kia Forte has a very handsome exterior design complemented by an interior which does justice to many luxury cars.

The luxury sedan look is enhanced by available LED lighting that flanks the grille as well as available high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. The swept-back, lower roofline and very strong character line on the flanks make the Forte appear sporting for a humble econo sedan. But where the real econo-as-luxury DNA of the Forte really comes through is in the cabin. Imagine available 10-way heated and cooled front driver’s seat, heated back seats and a heated steering wheel with controls for all the major functions like phone, audio and cruise.

There are several interior material choices and you can have carbon fibre look accents if you chose. Other available luxury items include climate control, air ionizer, enhanced LCD/TFT Supervision cluster, smart key push button start/stop, proximity puddle lighting, navigation and rear air ventilation. Standard features include Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, satellite radio, power windows and locks, AUX/USB inputs, trip computer and acres of softtouch materials. The Forte does not scrimp on safety with six-airbags, ABS with Brake Assist

Control (BAS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Assist Control (HAC) and standard Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) that automatically intervenes when it senses understeer or oversteer. The Forte has four-wheel disc brakes as standard where several of its main competitors have drums at the rear. This is a very good-looking car with road manners above what one might expect from a small car. The 2014 Forte really does lives up the Kia motto: The Power to Surprise.

Stability, Comfort and Confidence

sunny foodmart: Many local dignitaries, including Mayor Rob Ford, city councillors, MPPs and 23 Division police joined owner Bill Chen to celebrate the grand opening of the nearly 40,000-square foot Sunny Foodmart at 1620 Albion Rd. on Wednesday. The store is the fourth location for the Toronto business, and carries a wide variety of multicultural and halal foods.

Mayor Ford helps cut symbolic red tape for small businesses DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com When politicians get together to cut a red ribbon, usually it’s to unveil some spiffy new building or piece of infrastructure. Recently at Toronto City Hall, the scissors were there for the ribbon itself. Or rather, for the red tape. Mayor Rob Ford and several of his colleagues on council joined up with Dan Kelly of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) to cut the red tape on Red Tape Awareness Week in January.

This is the third time that Mayor Ford has declared the week, to raise awareness about government regulation of business that some say is a major drag on economic growth. “Red tape is the number two issue for small business and consumes a massive amount of time, money and also emotional stress for small business owners who are often dealing with the red tape in their own time,” said Kelly, president and CEO of the CFIB. Mayor Ford, sporting a Maple Leafs hockey jersey, said that the city has embarked on various initiatives to make

it easier for businesses to navigate city hall’s regulatory environment. “Cutting red tape is making a huge difference but we still have much, much more to do, folks,” said Ford. He pointed to several initiatives the city has undertaken. It is a partner in the national BizPaL service, that provides an online searchable database of business permits and licences for all levels of government, and it’s expanding its own e-service capabilities for producers and film companies.

Most patients who are missing their own natural teeth are excellent candidates for this amazing dental service.
