Making memories in front of the lens ‘Picture a Cure’ offers free photo shoots to cancer patients JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com Having seen first-hand the horrible impacts of cancer, Toronto photography store owners Chris and Grace Hughes are doing a little something to help bring some joy to those who have been diagnosed and their families. The Etobicoke couple is offering free Picture a Cure photography sittings for people battling cancer out of their shop, A Nerd’s World. The quirky shop is located at 986 Bathurst St., just north of Bloor. “In the last four years, I’ve had four close family members who have died of cancer and two more who are fighting cancer,” Chris said. “After my grandparents passed away, I wished I had had professional photos taken with them and now I want to make sure other people have that opportunity.” Cancer patients and their families can come in for a one-hour sitting, after which they take home a disc with the shots on them. Since they started offering the free sittings, they have held roughly a dozen shoots, with the subjects able to pick and choose what they want to convey through the photos. “They’re welcome to come with their whole family and they can >>>PATIENTS, page 5

Argonauts help students learn importance of standing up to bullies at school assembly CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

“I

t takes a much stronger person to lift someone up than it does to push someone down.” That was the message members of the Toronto Argonauts shared with more than 400 Islington Junior Middle School students Monday morning at a Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program school assembly – and it was a message well received. “We learned that bullying should not happen whatsoever. Don’t stand by, stand up and defend,” said 12-year-old Samer El-Galmady, a Grade 7 member of Islington JMS’s Huddle Up Committee. “If you see any bullying you should try to stop it because it really hurts people.” Now in its 12th year, the Argos’ Huddle Up program reached more than 35,000 students last year, inspiring and empowering youth to combat bullying in their schools by sending Toronto Argonaut players, cheerleaders, and program staff out to work alongside and encourage students. At Monday’s assembly at Islington JMS, Argo’s defensive back Matt Black looked on as Samer and his fellow Huddle Up Committee members – a total of 10 student leaders chosen to create in-school initiatives for their fellow students – announced the winners of a school-wide antibullying poster contest (each of whom received a football signed by Black), performed anti-bullying skits, and even rhymed a couple of anti-bullying raps for their classmates. During the hour-long event, students also heard the personal bullying story of Jason Colero, the Argo’s director of education programs. At 4’11” and 85 pounds, Colero was the smallest kid in his high school – so when he went out for the senior boys’ football team in the ninth grade, he was bullied

The Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program school assembly was held at Islington Junior Middle School with help from members of the Toronto Argonauts. Above, Const.

mercilessly. It started with name calling in the locker room, and quickly escalated to physical bullying on the field and in the hallways. Colero’s football equipment and clothes were stolen. He was locked in his locker. He was teased and put down every day. No one did anything to stand up for him or stop the bullying. “In my head, I couldn’t deal with it anymore. The stuff you read in the newspapers (about bullying) was what I was going

through,” he told the students. “The toughest part about it was no one was with me... “You see, while everyone else was thinking about going to the movies, I wasn’t thinking about that, I was thinking about quitting

the football team – and that was the very least thing I was thinking about. I can’t even tell you what else I was thinking about.” With the support of his family, Colero mustered the courage to go back to school on the final

day of football tryouts, only to be bullied yet again. Two of his teammates tried to force him to sing the national anthem in front of the entire school at lunch. Colero ran to the gym, chased by his two harassers. There, he ran into another teammate – Mark, a popular tenth grader who turned out to be Colero’s ultimate saviour. “He told the bullies, ‘okay guys, that’s enough. You’ve had enough of him. Settle down’ – and they listened,” Colero recalled. “What Mark did is something I ask every one of you to do at least once in your life: when you see someone alone, when you see someone that’s being bullied, they need somebody to talk to, they need to know that they’re not in this alone. Mark turned to me after the bullies had left and said to me ‘I’ll see you at practice tonight.’ What Mark did was incredible. I showed up at practice that night and made my high school football team. All it took was him showing me that I belonged.” Black, a Northern Secondary School alum who grew up in downtown Toronto, also shared the story of one of his childhood best friends, who succumbed to what Black calls ‘the bully of life’ – peer pressure. While Black was playing football on a full scholarship at Saginaw Valley State University, his best friend Jay – ‘a good person who made bad choices’ – was serving a four-year stint in prison for dealing drugs, all because he fell in with the wrong crowd and bowed to peer pressure, Black said. “I really, really, really hope you guys understand the message that I’m trying to send you today about not just being followers, but to have the courage to stand up and do what’s right and the courage to say ‘I’m not going to bow down to peer pressure,’” Black told the students Monday. “Throughout life, you’re going to have a lot of tough decisions that you’re going to have to make.”

Share your input on future plans for Toronto transit

T

oronto residents need to continue to make their voices heard when it comes to the transit issues facing not only our city but the entire Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).

The Greater Toronto CivicAction Alliance released an update of its Your 32 campaign this week, and it shows a growing support among GTHA residents to not only improve transit but to also accept some of the responsibility for paying for it. John Tory, co-chair of CivicAction, said transportation challenges have become the top issue for GTHA residents who deal with one of the longest commute times in North America. He called it “seven-day-aweek paralysis” that deeply our view affects families and business in the area. Transit The Your 32 campaign asked ‘paralysis’ residents what they would do if they had 32 minutes they other- hurting city wise would have had to spend on transit. Spending more time with family was one of the main responses. What really stood out, though, was what Tory called the human cost of our inadequate transportation system. The campaign was done to show support for the regional transit system improvements being proposed by Metrolinx. The Big Move aims to infuse some $50 billion worth of transit improvements in the GTHA over the next 25 years. The campaign helped residents realize the real costs of transit congestion and what it would be worth to them to make things better. We have said before in this space that we in Toronto, and the surrounding regions, will get the transit we are willing to pay for. Yes, provincial and federal governments must shoulder their share of the cost, but residents are also going to have to be willing to accept funding tools such as tax increases dedicated specifically for transit. To that end, the City of Toronto’s planning department is beginnings its own set of public consultations on transit. Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat said the meetings are being driven by the need to provide information to Metrolinx on what Toronto’s transit priorities are. We urge Toronto residents to participate in these meetings, and play a role in creating a regional transit system that works for all of us. Exact dates have not been finalized, but once that information is available we will let our readers know when and where these meetings will be. newsroom

To the editor: Thank you for your Dec. 20th front page of The Etobicoke Guardian, wishing your readers a ‘Merry Christmas from The Guardian’. It was heartwarming to see a picture of the Nativity stained-glass window from the Kingsway-Lambton United Church. Reading about the history of its Christmas pageant dating back to 1937 was very informative. I have noticed that many retailers are acknowledging Happy Chinese New Year, Happy Diwali, Happy Ramadan, Happy Hannukah. These are not demoted to ‘happy holidays’. Therefore, it’s always meaningful to see Christmas acknowledged for what it is other than ‘happy holiday’. The true spirit of multiculturalism would be when we all celebrate or just acknowledge each other’s customs. This means to be inclusive of Christmas as well. Doreen Remedios

Planner makes brave stand on transit issues

W

hen Jennifer Keesmaat turned up as the City of Toronto’s new chief planner last summer, it raised a few eyebrows. It’s not to say the former planning consultant wasn’t a good fit. Keesmaat cut her teeth on city politics, working as an executive assistant for New Democrat councillor Joe Mihevc and Progressive Conservative Councillor Jane Pitfield in the early days of amalgamated Toronto. In the private sector, she’s worked on land use planning issues – what she’d term “city building” – in communities across the country. But she seemed like an odd choice for the Ford administration. Keesmaat also came as an advocate for lower-order transit and cycling and pedestrian accommodation. On the last point, she went so far as to deliver a TED talk, extolling the virtues of walking to school. She’s a planner that

THE CITY

david nickle

would have been a perfect fit in the David Miller administration. On Monday, less than six months into the job, Keesmaat stood up in front of a packed house at the Toronto Board of Trade, pressing a similarly neighbourhood-based agenda. Transportation, she said, remains the singular challenge for growing a city surrounded by sprawling suburbs, both within — and far beyond — city limits. Too many of us are spending too long getting to and from work, and it’s affecting the city’s ability to attract more jobs and remain livable. Next month, she and the

city will be launching a public consultation plan to see just what level of transit improvement Toronto residents are willing to pay for. But in the speech, she made it clear that the biggest transportation improvement the city can make has nothing to do with transportation at all: rather, it involves developing mid-rise housing and commercial space along some of the city’s avenues. As she pointed out: “Where we choose to live is our most important transportation planning problem. If you live in Hamilton and commute to Toronto, even with state-ofthe-art transportation infrastructure, you’re commuting for two hours a day.” This is a view entirely consistent with the City of Toronto’s progressivist planning legacy — so not entirely new. But so long as Toronto continues along the route that Mayor Ford began in 2010, it’s clear that Keesmaat is fighting

against the grain. In a moment of candor that seemed almost unbelievably politically naïve for a civil servant, she admitted as much. “We, of course, have a political culture that’s very challenging. I’m not getting into that in any detail — but the reality is we’re in a highly politicized environment. I was warned about the fishbowl before coming here. You can know about it intellectually, but you have no idea what it’s like having so many eyes looking at everything you say or Tweet.” The fact that Keesmaat was first hired, and second remains in her position, suggests that those eyes are more diverse in opinion than the message from the mayor’s office might suggest. n David Nickle is The Guardian’s city hall columnist.

Gardiner Expressway EA moves forward Toronto’s 2013 budget still includes $500M to repair crumbling highway DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto’s budget chief Mike Del Grande moved a motion to resume the environmental assessment on the possible tear-down of the Gardiner Expressway. But that’s not to say that Del Grande, a longtime opponent of plans to tear down the Gardiner, has changed his tune. Del Grande said the environmental assessment, which was halted early in Mayor Rob Ford’s term, should be completed as a way to take some of the partisan bite out of the debate on the future of the elevated highway. “I’m all for a fair and reasonable review and an environmental assessment — I am,” said Del Grande at Tuesday’s budget committee meeting to finish off the city’s 2013 budget before sending it to executive committee. “But it just seemed no matter who is in power, left and right, one side is suspicious of the other. There’s this notion that in order to have our wonderful lakefront we’ve got to tear down the Gardiner.

A city worker pries a concrete slab off the Gardiner Expressway during recent repairs.

That was when the buzzword was the ‘war on the car.’ One of the viewpoints was that you make it so difficult to drive that you can’t drive.” Del Grande made the comments

after Toronto councillors went over a briefing note, explaining how it was that the environmental assessment approved under former mayor David Miller was effectively halted after Mayor Rob

Ford was elected – without council’s approval. According to the briefing note, the environmental assessment first came up in March of 2011, when the public works and infrastrucutre committee chair asked the deputy city manager to draft a letter detailing the implications of cancelling the environmental assessment. The letter was to have been submitted to executive committee but was not. In 2011, Waterfront Toronto reallocated the remainder of the funding for the environmental assessment to deal with other issues: notably, George Brown, Queens Quay and East Bayfront Revitalization Projects. Councillors who had supported the original plan to tear down the eastern portion of the Gardiner Expressway raised questions as to why council wasn’t informed, and as to whether council would even be able to decide to tear the Gardiner down. Toronto’s 2013 budget includes $500 million in its capital budget to repair the crumbling elevated highway.

Man shot outside strip club CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com A man in his 20s was rushed to hospital with “very serious” but not life-threatening wounds after being shot outside an Etobicoke strip club early Friday morning. Police responded to the House of Lancaster at 689 The Queensway at around 2:38 a.m. after receiving a call reporting the sound of gunshots in the area. “When we got there, we found a man with gunshot wounds,” said Const. Victor Kwong, noting that the shooting took place outside of the club. The unnamed victim, who Toronto EMS spokesperson Kim McKinnon described as a man in his 20s, was rushed to a local trauma centre with nonlife-threatening injuries. While several media outlets have reported that the victim was shot in the face, neither Kwong nor McKinnon could confirm those reports. McKinnon, however, said the man’s wounds were “definitely to the upper part of the body.” Police have not yet released the description of any suspects wanted in connection with the case. No arrests have yet been made.

n Teen swarmed

A 17-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint during a swarming near The Kingsway and Anglesey Boulevard on

Tuesday. According to police, three male suspects in a car – one armed with a handgun – approached the victim at around 4 p.m. and demanded his cellphone. The victim complied and the suspects fled the scene in the vehicle, northbound on The Kingsway. The victim was not hurt. The first suspect is described as black, aged 20 to 22, 5’6”, 130 pounds, with a thin build. The other two suspects were described simply as black.

n Mac’s store robbed

The Mac’s Convenience store at 140 La Rose Ave. was robbed by a masked man on Sunday. According to a police report, a male suspect wearing a disguise entered the store at around 10 p.m., jumped over the counter and demanded cash from the 27-year-old male owner of the store. The victim complied and the suspect fled the scene eastbound on La Rose. The victim was not hurt. The suspect is described as black, aged 23 to 26, 5’9”, 155 pounds, with a medium build.

n Boy hands over cash

Three young male suspects are being sought by police in connection with the swarming robbery of a 16-year-old boy near The East Mall and Rathburn Road on Saturday.

Police allege the three suspects approached the victim at around 6 p.m., and one of the suspects struck up a conversation with him before demanding his cellphone and cash. The suspect indicated he was armed, but no weapon was seen. The victim nevertheless complied with the suspect’s demands, and all three suspects fled the scene traveling northbound on The East Mall. The victim was not hurt. Two of the suspects are described as aged 16, 6’0”, 145 pounds, with thin builds. The other suspect is described as aged 16, 6’2”, 145 pounds, with a thin build.

Eight transit enforcement officers have been fired and five charged with criminal offences, for allegedly issuing false tickets to homeless people in order to cover for their absence. According to TTC spokesperson Brad Ross, five of the officers are alleged to have submitted hundreds of false tickets to people of no fixed address, for charges such as panhandling, loitering, or tresspassing. The purpose of the falsified tickets appeared to be to cover the fact that the employees weren’t on duty when they were being paid, the TTC alleged. “When they showed up to

work they would be in uniform, but they would not be where they said they were,” said Ross. noticed ‘irregularities’ The investigation into the conduct of the officers began four months ago, prompted by observations internally of “irregularities” in the tickets. “We were noticing in a number of tickets – how they were being issued – patterns emerged with respect to individuals themselves, and also through conduct we witnessed through surveillance,” said Ross.

>>>from page 1 at ESA. “And so, we’re now saying we want our extracurriculars back and its unfair that we’re being so effected by this conflict between the union and the government.” Elementar y and high school teachers across the province have been withdrawing from extracurricular activities – which are considered unpaid work – in protest of the controversial Bill 115, under which the provincial government forced contracts on teachers earlier this month. ESA is just one of nearly 30 schools across the province that participated in the non-partisan event, which was organized by the Organization of Ontario Secondary Students (OOSS) – a group first formed in December 2012, consisting of Grade 11 and 12 students at Abbey Park High School in Oakville and has since grown to include membership at close to 30 schools across the province. online support Online momentum for the Sport Your Extra-Curricular Day event on Facebook is growing, with more than 1,400 Ontario students pledging to participate – www.facebook.com/index.php?#!/ events/592790050738465/ The goal of the Sport Your Extra-Curricular Day was “not to wreak havoc on the union or the government, but to send a distinctive message that advocates the

student voice and publicizes the devastating impact this conflict has had on Ontario students,” the OOSS stated in a news release. “I believe students have been harmed unnecessarily in this battle between the government and the teachers’ union,” said event participant Navina Lotay, a member of ESA’s student council and a Grade 12 music theatre major. “ T h e e x t ra c u r r i c u l a r activities we participate in are so important to us – they are opportunities for us to do things we love outside of class, with no pressure of getting a great mark or pleasing a teacher.” For Carmen, who transferred from her Oakville high school last year specifically to take advantage of ESA’s enriched arts curriculum – one that relies heavily on after-school practices and out-of-classroom rehearsals – the loss of extracurriculars has been particularly disheartening. “We want people to know that we really want this situation to end quickly and that we don’t blame the government or the union, but we do hope that there will be a solution sometime in the near future. We really want us students to have our extracurriculars back, because they aren’t really extra, they’re an important supplement to our education,” she said. “Extracurriculars provide life skills and experiences that you just can’t get from a math class – especially at

ESA, where the arts are such an important part of our curriculum. We’re losing so much of what makes up the fabric of our school, because we’re unable to participate in anything outside of class.” This year’s ESA musical – “A Tribute to Fosse,” a musical revue of the choreography of the late, legendary dancer Bob Fosse – has been especially hard hit by the ban on extracurriculars, added Carmen. no time to rehearse Not only are the student performers taking part unable to rehearse outside of school hours – severely limiting the students’ preparation time – but the live student orchestra that usually performs the music for ESA’s musicals has been replaced by pre-recorded tracks, and the musical’s show times have been rescheduled from the evening to during school hours. “The musical brings in a lot of revenue for ESA’s musical theatre department, and with the hours of rehearsal time that have been cut, and the fact that we’ve had to change our set and change our costumes, and change our show times, we’re not going to be able to make as much money as we usually do,” Carmen said. “The musical is such a large part of our curriculum, and the curriculum is really why we all come to this school – so, it’s just completely changed our whole experience this year.”

Studying abroad helps students’ grades Parents of high school students interested in earning credits abroad this summer are invited to attend an information meeting about opportunities in Portugal. The Toronto Catholic D i s t r i c t S c h o o l B o a rd ( TCDSB) and Instituto Camões are providing an opportunity for Toronto secondary students to study in Portugal, while touring and experiencing the country’s wonders.

Transportation

Residents want leaders to get on with building better transit: CivicAction RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com Whether it’s in the 416 or the 905, a spokesperson for the Greater Toronto CivcAction Alliance believes a groundswell of support for transit expansion is building as congestion grows to “crisis” levels in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA). John Tory, from CivicAction, an advocacy group calling for better regional transit connections, said Monday morning transportation has become the top local issue for residents concerned with gridlock and daily commute times that are among the highest in North America. “You really get a feel when you travel to the farther reaches of the 416 and even more so into the 905 and see the seven day-a-week paralysis that so deeply affects families and businesses,” said Tory, the group’s chair, during a press conference held by CivicAction at city hall. “Transportation is at an all-time high as a concern for local residents.” Tory, who is also a popular radio host, presented an update along with CivicAction CEO Mitzie Hunter of the group’s three-month-old Your32 publicity campaign for better transit. He said an “evolution” was taking place in the minds of residents regarding the toll congestion takes on their personal lives. “Individuals are coming to realize congestion caused by a grossly inadequate transportation system is negatively affecting their jobs and their families,” said Tory. “They have come to the conclusion major action is necessary to improve the quality of their own lives.” That action, according to the CivicAction, is investing billions of dollars for a meaningful transformation of the existing transportation network to come directly from both governments and residents. “I think the public have given the signal they want the leaders to get on with building transit and find fair and balanced ways to pay for it,” he said. Hunter said over the course of its Your32 campaign the group asked residents to weigh

in on what they would do with 32 extra minutes of time per day. That’s the amount of time the transit planning agency Metrolinx says will be lost if the $50 billion Big Move regional transportation plan is not completed within the next 25 years and commute times rise even further from 77 to 109 minutes as a result.

“Individuals are coming to realize congestion caused by a grossly inadequate transportation system is negatively affecting their jobs and their families.” - John Tory “We asked people to tell us how traffic congestion is affecting them,” said Hunter. “They have showed us the true cost of the region’s antiquated and inadequate system.” Hunter said thousands of residents took part in the exercise, including 15,000 visitors to campaign website www.your32.com, as well as through social media. CivicAction took the feedback from residents and created a word cloud infograph of the most popular responses. According to the word cloud, which was unveiled

at the press conference, the most popular responses include spending more time with family, catching up on sleep and enjoying a better work experience. The human cost of congestion is something that has been missing during the debate for better transit, said Tory. “It’s really the humanity of the responses,” said Tory following the press conference. “People are talking about time being taken way from their family.” He said he was happy to see the prominence of the transit funding issue in the Ontario Liberal leadership race to replace Dalton McGuinty, but declined to endorse a specific candidate. To r y, w h o w a s o n c e the leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives also said CivicAction had plans to consult further with the main Ontario political parties, including Tim Hudak’s Tories, and had also held a group event for municipal leaders, which was also attended by Toronto mayor Rob Ford. In addition to updating the progress of its Your32 media campaign, Hunter also announced the addition of three more members to CivicAction’s council of regional “champions”, private and public sector individuals who advocate for better transit throughout the GTHA. The list of 44 appointees also includes former chief city planner Paul Bedford.

Over 50 vehicle unveilings are prepared for Detroit 2013 North American International Auto Show is underway in Motor City Global automakers saved their best for the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), and as the curtain rises in Detroit, the industry remains focused on one of the top automotive events in the world. “This show is a reflection of the positive changes that are occurring in our industry,” said Jim Seavitt, chairman, 2013 NAIAS. “Automakers from around the world continue to place NAIAS at

the top of their global auto show strategies, and have committed to more than 50 vehicle debuts with the majority being worldwide unveilings.” Seavitt said the official NAIAS Press Conference Schedule reads like an automakers ‘Who’s Who’ . “Our hotels are filling up, our international media registration is up 15 percent, and the energy is back,” he said. “Our city, state and industry are in a

better place. It’s show time in Detroit.” Together, the more than 50 worldwide and North American unveilings are a major demonstration of confidence in the NAIAS, which is frequently compared with shows in Geneva, Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo, and Beijing/Shanghai. With more than 6,000 journalists from around the globe expected to attend NAIAS, the show continues to be at the forefront as a venue for manufacturers and Tier One suppliers to announce new vehicles and make industry news. – NAIAS

The much-awaited 2014 Corvette Stingray was the hit of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It’s 6.2-litre V8 produces 450 hp but should get better mileage than the current model.

Corvette dominates the show in Motown X D C I V I C 2013 OR LEA

The undisputed star of this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit was the 2014 Corvette Stingray. It marks only the third time since the Corvette was launched in 1954 that the Stingray name

has been used - such is its importance to GM. Shown in coupe form in Detroit, its styling leaves no doubt this is a Corvette but it is easily the sleekest version yet with a 6.2-litre V8 producing an esti-

mated 450 hp and 450 lb/ft of torque and will have a 0-60 mph time of less than four seconds. Corvette officials say it is expected to be better on fuel than the (US) 26 mpg of the current model. >>

ramps give the truck unique functionality for a variety of jobs. Inside thin, lightweight leather seats allow extra legroom for rear passengers. The Atlas powertrain features Auto Stop-Start that shuts off the engine when stopped in traffic to save fuel. Other fuel saving devices include Active Grille Shutters that close to improve aerodynamics when cruising on at steady speeds; Active Wheel Shutters that automatically close at highway speeds to improve aerodynamics and a drop-down front air dam that lowers at highway speeds to improve underbody airflow. The air dam is raised at low speeds to improve ground clearance.

JEEP: The diesel-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee is back with a 3.0-litre EcoDiesel with a range of close to 1,000 km. Also available with the current 3.6litre Pentastar V6 and 5.7-litre Hemi V8, it will also feature air suspension, a choice of four-wheel-drive systems and the ability to tow up to 7,400 lb. And it will also be the safest Grand Cherokee ever with more than 60 driver security features including Front Park Assist, Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Selec-Speed Control. Also on the Jeep stand were the refreshened Patriot and Compass CUVs >>

Left: If the new line of commercial vans Ford showed at Detroit is any indication, it is back in the people mover business with the Transit Wagon. Right: It’s called the Atlas Concept Pickup but points very clearly at how the next generation Ford F-150 pickup will look.

The interior features genuine carbon fibre with magnesium frame seats and dual eight-inch configurable infotainment systems. Heightening the ride and handling is a five-position Drive Mode switch that allows the driver to factor in 12 different “attributes� while the new seven-speed manual transmission comes with Active Rev Matching that anticipates when the driver is about to shift and matches the gear to engine speed. For those who want more, there is the track-capable Z51 Performance Package including: an electronic lim-

ited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling system, integral/differential/transmission cooling as well as an aero package that improves high speed stability.

FORD: Over at Ford, it was all about trucks with heavy emphasis on commercial vans starting with the all-new Transit full-size van powered by a new 3.2-litre Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel. In Europe, the same engine produces 197 hp and 347 lb/ft of torque. The new engine features state-ofthe-art piezoelectric fuel injectors fed through a high-pressure common rail

fuel system and advanced emissions technology with the expectation of fuel economy exceeding (US) 40 mpg. And then Ford showed what they called “a little surprise� with the Atlas Concept pickup giving a very clear indication of what the next generation F-150 will look like. The design was heavily influence by customer feed back with the inclusion of multiple tie-down points integrated within the cargo box walls and load floor. There are 110-volt electrical outlets in the cargo box to charge power tools. An integrated roof carrying system and hidden extendable

Jeep will reintroduce a 3.0-litre turbo diesel in the 2014 Grand Cherokee along with the current 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 and the 5.7-litre Hemi V8.

Detroit Auto Show 2013 Domestics Con’t CADILLAC: GM Canada president Kevin Williams told Canadian autowriters the car he is most excited about this year is the Cadillac ELR. It is not a hybrid but an Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV) much like the Chevrolet Volt. A T-shaped lithium-ion battery rated at 16.5 kW provides primary

motive power good for 35 miles of normal driving. When that is depleted a 1.4-litre gasoline engine/generator kicks in extending the range to 300 miles. The battery/engine can be configured into four modes – sport, touring, mountain and hold. Hold allows the driver to use the engine as a generator to save battery power for things such

tended lineup of Blacktop trim package vehicles. For the 2013 calendar year, the Dodge Grand Caravan minivan, Durango seven-seat SUV and Journey mid-size crossover join the Challenger, Charger and Avenger to complete the Dodge brand’s offering of Blacktop packages. As an example, the Dodge Blacktop package adds unique Gloss Black wheels, select exterior paint colours, Gloss Black-painted “split-crosshair� grilles with Gloss Black matching grille surround, Black headlamp bezels, as well as some unique Blacktop

interior touches. Fiat continues to spin out versions of the 500, and at Detroit, it showed the Fiat 500 Abarth “Tenebra� design concept with unique Matte Grigio (gray) paint and special appointments including a roof-size Abarth scorpion logo. The Fiat 500 “Cattiva� design concept highlights the 500 Turbo’s sophisticated appearance featuring sporty bi-color look and blackedout appearance.

The Toyota Furia Concept hints at the styling customers can expect from the next-generation Corolla.

Detroit Auto Show 2013 Japanese

Japanese unveil exciting new models If the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is any indication, the luxury automotive market is still very much a going concern these days. Surprisingly, despite the tough economic times of recent years, the luxury segment has continued to grow in North America and Japanese models from Infiniti and Lexus as well as others from European, domestic

and even Korean manufacturers are being showcased at this year’s event. Among the notable vehicles bowing here is Infiniti’s G37 replacement, the 2014 Q50 sports sedan. This is the first model to employ Infiniti’s new ‘Q’ naming nomenclature and it will be in dealerships this summer. From now on, Infiniti will be using the letter Q to identify its car

models. The letter Q will be combined with a double-digit number. The higher the number, the higher the model is on the Infiniti hierarchy, according to president Johan de Nysschen. >> The Q50 is also the first model to display Infiniti’s new design language, taking many styling cues from the Infiniti Essence concept car that was first shown in 2009.

Detroit Auto Show 2013 Japanese con’t. The Q50 is also the first model to display Infiniti’s new design language, taking many styling cues from the Infiniti Essence concept car that was first shown in 2009. Two power options will be offered, a 328 hp 3.7-litre V6 or a hybrid model combining a 3.5-litre 24-valve DOHC V6 with a 50 kW electric motor and a compact lithium ion battery, producing a net hybrid power of 360 hp. Both rear- and all-wheel drive systems are available with a seven-speed automatic transmission. One major new technology debuting in the Q50 is Infiniti Direct Adaptive Steering that allows advanced control of the tire angle and steering inputs and transmits those driver inputs to the wheels faster than a mechanical system. Four different steering settings are available. The Q50 will also the only vehicle in the world currently offering a new safety system called Predictive Forward Collision Warning, a feature that Infiniti president de Nysschen says will eventually be on every car on the road.

2014 LEXUS IS: Lexus has completely redesigned its IS lineup for 2014, including rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions of the IS 250, IS350 along with the F Sport package. This new design features the signature Lexus spindle grille and has 12 Lexus first features and technical innovations. An all-new interior is luxurious and refined, but Lexus set out to make the IS a

driver’s car, according to chief engineer Junichi Furuyama. The new IS has a wheelbase 70 mm longer than the outgoing model and is 10 mm wider to provide best-in-class rear seat comfort and luggage capacity. It also features new 60/40 split folding rear seats. The IS F Sport models get a more sporty, aggressive exterior design.

2014 NISSAN VERSA NOTE: Nissan added to its entry-level lineup with a new hatchback called the Versa Note, which goes on sale in June, starting at $13,348. The Note will be offered in S, SV and SL trim levels. All come with a 1.6-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine with either a fivespeed manual transmission or an Xtronic CVT, which Nissan says will provide best in class fuel economy. Despite its small size, the Note has a total interior volume of 3,270.6 litres (115.5 cu ft) and cargo volume of 606 litres (2l.4 cu ft). An available Divide-N-Hide adjustable rear floor in back adds to the versatility of the car. Also available as a class-exclusive item is a monitor that provides a virtual 360degree view of objects around the vehicle.

TOYOTA COROLLA FURIA CONCEPT: The Toyota Furia Concept hints at the styling customers can expect from the next-generation Corolla. Toyota says the Furia is designed around the theme “Iconic

Dynamism,� which uses pure and simple surface elements to create a confident, decisive and recognizable appearance appealing to more youthful customers. Changing and modernizing the face of Toyota has been a goal of president Akio Toyoda, who has directed the company to start building more exciting cars that people want to drive. This car heads down that path of adding more excitement to the brand if the new Corolla resembles the concept, which has an athletic stance and a swoopy, sloping roofline. The concept is longer (4,620 mm) and has a longer wheelbase (2,700 mm) than the current Corolla. It is also just slightly shorter, at 1,425 mm compared with the current Corolla at 1,465 mm.

HONDA URBAN CONCEPT SUV: Honda introduced a compact crossover concept that is based on the same platform as the next-generation Fit. This new vehicle will sit just below the CR-V in the Honda hierarchy and will come to market in the U.S. and Canada next year. Honda has a new plant in Mexico that will build both the new Fit and this compact Urban Concept SUV. It will feature Honda’s fuel-efficient Earth Dreams powertrain technology that debuted on the new Accord and will include the Magic Seat setup now found in the Fit that can provide a host of passenger and cargo options including a fold-flat mode for maximum cargo capacity.

This new concept vehicle signals the future direction of Nissan crossovers with a bold, edgy and aerodynamic exterior look and a fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain.

NISSAN RESONANCE CONCEPT:

ACURA NSX:

This new concept vehicle signals the future direction of Nissan crossovers with a bold, edgy and aerodynamic exterior look and a fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain. Design uses a V-motion theme, which starts from the front grille and moves through the hood. One standout feature is the boomerang-shaped headlights. It has an athletic stance, sitting on 22inch aluminum alloy wheels and the dynamic Flare Orange paint colour adds to the bold image. Inside, designers created a futuristic VIP lounge-like atmosphere, loaded with hightech premium goodies and dramatic interior illumination.

Acura unveiled the new NSX concept that showcases what the new supercar’s styling might look like. It also gives a possible peek into the future of the interior design as well. A mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to Acura’s Sport Hybrid SHAWD system will power it.

OPEN HOUSE Saturday January 19 • 10 am - 2 pm

Toronto taxpayers’ group supports using casino cash to build subways RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com Hundreds of millions of dollars for subway expansion are at stake should Toronto City Council vote against building a casino, according to a report released by a local taxpayers’ group. The report by the Toronto Taxpayers Coalition calls on council to approve a casino for the city which would generate $400-million annually – enough to pay for one new subway station and one kilometre of track every year. Coalition spokesperson Mathew McGuire said the significant amount of money for new transit could be attained through hosting fees – estimated at $50 to $100 million – plus revenues gained from licensed gaming tables in restaurants and bars and

through expanded online gaming. “You can have $400 million in new revenue every year from a casino to build subways without raising taxes one dime,” said McGuire, president of the coalition. City council, which will vote on the issue this spring, can ensure maximum revenues by leveraging the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s (OLG) stated preference for Toronto as the location for a new casino, said McGuire. “OLG wants a casino in Toronto and it will pay hosting fees to represent that,” he said. “Toronto can capitalize on our influence to negotiate for a large fee.” But while the report, released Jan. 5, extols the benefits of a potential casino, it’s short of data showing how

it came up with the $400-million figure. McGuire called the number a “best-case scenario” that takes into account certain variables such as the size and future location of a casino. He said a team of interns had looked into casino revenues, but was not able to provide specific sources they contacted through the course of their research. The report concerned Toronto-Danforth Councillor Mary Fragedakis, a casino opponent, who said the estimates presented by the coalition are not in line with the current proposal. She said any potential monetary benefits from a casino would be offset by a rise in crime and other social ills. For more information visit www.toronto.ca

Input sought on city’s transit priorities RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com By the end of January, Toronto will launch a public consultation process for future transit funding, said the city’s chief planner. Jennifer Keesmaat said the process will be heavy on social media but will also include public meetings to give residents the opportunity to provide input on an investment strategy for transit Metrolinx is drafting to deliver to the premier’s office in June. “We believe using a variety of different techniques and tools will allow people to best participate,” said Keesmaat last week. “We’re doing a pretty

important and ambitious activity here because we believe the residents of the city have an opinion about transit funding.” Metrolinx is considering 17 “revenue funding” tools – in the form of new fees and taxes dedicated toward financing most of the $50 billion provincial Big Move Transportation plan – and is seeking input for which of the tools should be used to pay for transit expansion. The transit planning agency recently recommended $34 billion in priority projects to be completed within 15 years, including a new subway line for Toronto to ease congestion and overcrowding. Toronto, said Keesmaat, is

the only municipality in the region to organize its own consultation process for transit funding, from which city staff will make a recommendation to council for a vote sometime in the spring. The approved recommendations will then be forwarded to Metrolinx. “We have a relatively short period of time to execute the process in part because it’s really being driven by the need to provide input to Metrolinx,” said Keesmaat who was named chief planner last summer. The meetings coincide with Metrolinx’s own consultation process.Two Toronto roundtable discussions are planned for Feb. 5 and 9.

Toronto neighbourhoods won’t lose any fire trucks or stations right away, hungry schoolchildren will eat, and the city will subsidize more childcare thanks to a total of $12 million in add-ons approved by Toronto council for its 2013 operating and capital budgets. Council approved the changes to the budget presented by Mayor Rob Ford at the end of a day-and-a-half debate this week, while hundreds of firefighters wearing matching red T-shirts looked on. The firefighters were there to try and have a decision to reverse a budget plan to take five fire trucks out of service, shut a fire station on Runnymede, and cut 104 firefighter positions. The cuts were reversed by degree. Last week, Mayor Ford moved a motion to restore 20 firefighters; on Tuesday, Toronto-Danforth Councillor Paula Fletcher put forward a motion to restore another 63 positions and keep all the trucks

on the road. Council finally settled on a compromise, to add $3.1 million to the fire budget, which would pay for the trucks and firefighters until July, when council was able to consider a number of reports from Toronto Fire and determine whether cuts were warranted. That compromise was the only one of the motions that Mayor Ford supported. ADDED TO THE BUDGET Also added to the budget was $1.163 million to student nutrition programs; $3.8 million to increase child care subsidies by 264 spaces; $6.8 million to replenish the Social Housing Stabilization Reserve fund; and the hiring of five additional building inspectors. Mayor Ford called the budget vote a victory, saying it was “truly an historical day at city hall.” “This budget does some things that we have never done before,” he said, of the $9.4 billion budget. “It features improved services, lower debt, affordable taxes and sustainable spending. I say sustainable

spending because for the first time ever this budget does not rely on any prior year surplus. That’s amazing. They said it couldn’t be done but we are proving people wrong.” Ford told reporters that while he gave up ground on the budget, moving some compromises, voting for others and losing on a large number — it could have been worse. “It could have been $50 million more,” he said. “We fended them off — they’re like piranhas. You’re going to get bit a few times, but you’re in there and it could have been a lot worse.” Ford’s enthusiasm wasn’t shared by many of his allies, though. HOLYDAY DISAPPOINTED Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday said that council had allowed itself to be “strong-armed” by the firefighters’ association, who hired lobbyists and engaged in a major campaign to reverse the cuts. “What bothered me the most was the firefighter situation,” he said. “I just wonder what kind of message it sends to our senior staff and

management to undermine that in this way.” And budget chief Mike Del Grande was dismayed with many of the motions — including one, that asked for a report on making budget meetings more transparent. Prior to council, he had said repeatedly that he would no longer be budget chief if council tried to alter the budget presented by executive committee. On Wednesday, Jan. 16, Del Grande wouldn’t say whether he’d make good on the promise — but in his speech, he expressed his disappointment with council. “What concerns me most is the motion questioning the transparency of the budget process which I take as a personal vilification,” he said. “There has been no other time where every single budget committee meeting has been held in the open. I didn’t have the luxury of my predecessor that had 104 private meetings. We’ve had more public meetings, more meetings, more briefing notes. To make the charge that the process is not transparent goes beyond the pale for me. I’m disappointed.”
