Joint police effort lead to arrest three hours after body discovered CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Police have officially identified the woman stabbed to death and set on fire on an Etobicoke street early Saturday morning as 27-year-old Bridget Takyi. On Saturday morning at around 7 a.m., police were called to the Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue West area for an “unknown trouble” call. That investigation then led officers to a second location on Richgrove Drive, where Takyi’s body was discovered with “obvious signs of trauma.” She was pronounced dead at the scene. At a media briefing at police headquarters Monday afternoon, Det. Sgt.

The TTC will consider the feasibility of limiting the number of baby strollers allowed on its vehicles in the future. But chair Karen Stintz told reporters the transit commission has no intention of reducing the number of strollers allowed, for which there is currently no limit, nor would it consider charging extra for their use. “We’ll take it back (to staff) and see if there’s anything we can do,” said Stintz at city hall Monday afternoon.

Brian Borg of the Homicide Squad said the murder itself occurred at or around 4 a.m. Saturday morning, as the victim walked to her car – which was parked on Richgrove Drive – to drive to work. “It was at that time that an event occurred between the victim and the accused, which resulted in her death,” Borg said, characterizing her death as ‘extremely violent.’ “That death included both the victim being stabbed and being set on fire using a flammable substance...the intensity of that fire has virtually left her body unrecognizable.” As a result, it took police several days to definitively identify the victim as Takyi.

Stintz surprised strollers have become an issue on TTC

At the monthly meeting, Stintz and the rest of the TTC’s board of commissioners (minus Glenn De Baeremaeker who was absent) voted to receive feedback from staff regarding the use of strollers on all vehicles, which can be a source of dissatisfaction among some commuters for their size and tendency to block seats and exits. Stintz, who said she has taken baby strollers on board TTC vehicles in the past with no argument from other riders, was surprised the issue came up during the two-hour board meeting. “I don’t have a resolution because quite frankly up until today I never considered the use of strollers to be a problem,” she said. In a five-minute deputation to the board, resident Elsa La Rosa said baby strollers are often the source of disputes between commuters. She called the presence of up to six strollers on one TTC bus a >>>STAFF, page 2

Staff will report back on use of strollers on TTC vehicles >>>from page 1 “comedy act” for riders attempting to make their way through. La Rosa, 61, called on the TTC to start charging riders with strollers extra fares or limiting their use at peak times. TTC CEO Andy Byford admitted the feedback he has received from riders and bus operators indicates

baby strollers blocking seats and bus exits are becoming a growing concern. UK limits strollers But adopting measures like those in London, UK, for example which limits strollers to two per bus, can create resentment among riders who would perceive operators as acting like “jobsworths” a

Music World founder, philanthropist Kroum Pindoff dies at 97 More than 100 music stores opened at height of success with offices in Etobicoke TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Kroum Pindoff died as he had lived — thinking of others. The entrepreneur and philanthropist who founded the popular Music World records and who donated with his wife, Eva, more than $20 million to the Canadian Red Cross died in his sleep Jan. 16 at his Etobicoke condominium. He was 97. He was cremated. There was no funeral service. Pindoff had indicated he wanted the money to help others, not to memorialize himself, a family friend said. While Pindoff made his fortune selling records in Toronto, he was keen to share his wealth. The couple’s Red Cross donation aided victims of landmines, disaster relief and supported projects to help women, children and seniors affected by war in the former Yugoslavia. They gave millions more to War Child Canada, to help young war victims. “He was a man with a twinkle in his eyes about life,” said family friend, Trevor Townsend. “He had that twinkle for what mattered in

OBITUARY life: his family, his wife whom he called his partner, best friend and soulmate. “He was happiest when he was meaningfully helping other human beings. His true wealth wasn’t his money. It was his generosity, his kind outlook, his role in helping other people.” Pindoff lived through the atrocities of the Second World War. When he and his wife immigrated in Canada in 1955 from Germany, both worked at a Toronto meat packing plant; one on the day shift, the other working nights. He saved $10,000, bought a vehicle and began what would become his future financially successful record business selling records on consignment out of his station wagon to pharmacies and convenience stores across Ontario, Townsend said. Pindoff Record Sales led to Music World, the company he founded in 1970. Music World would grow to more than 100 stores at the height of its success, with its offices and warehouse on Norseman Street in Etobicoke. Pindoff sold the busi-

ness around 2007. Soon after, it had filed for bankruptcy and remaining locations were closed, an outcome of online music sales. Pindoff kept Music World open longer than some may have to protect the jobs of his employees, Townsend said. “He kept the company running to

Technology, nature focus of LCI students’ mixed-media exhibit CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com The work of Lakeshore Collegiate Institute CyberARTS students is currently being displayed in the galleries of Lakeshore Arts for the very first time. The Generation Why? exhibit, featuring the mixed-media and sculptural installation pieces of 11 LCI students alongside the work of artist Paul Dickens, will be on display in the Smith Zone Gallery at Lakeshore Arts, 2242 Lake Shore Blvd. W. until Jan. 31. The student exhibit, said Lakeshore Arts’ Program Manager Bebhinn Jennings, explores the relationship between technology and nature. “It’s looking at technology and melding medias that are more traditional with new digital medias as well, so we have painting, we have photography – with lots of Photoshop exploration – and we have a really amazing video, which is pieced together with a Strauss waltz,” she said, lauding the Grade

11 project as ‘gorgeous’. The CyberARTS program at LCI is a four-year program that “combines traditional art and digital technology with a fast-paced, hands-on approach.” Lakeshore Arts is a regular collaborator with both the school and the program, Jennings said.

“Lakeshore Arts has a long-standing relationship with LCI...bringing artists into the school and working with the CyberARTS students, and helping promote and exhibit their work,” she said. In addition to the student work, the exhibit also features Quantum Doodles by local artist Paul Dickens. Lakeshore Arts chose to showcase Dickens’ work alongside the student exhibit, Jennings said, because of the digital, “cubic technology feel” to Dickens’ hand-drawn pictures. “Visually, when you look at them, it’s almost like those posters where you have to stare at it for a really long time and then an image pops out – it’s all really bright, vivid colours drawn with gel pens,” she remarked. “There’s a real Op art (optical art) look to them.” The joint exhibit will be on display until Jan. 31. The gallery is open Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, go to www.lakeshorearts.ca or call 416-201-7093.

keep people employed. Some had been with him for 25 or 30 years,” he said. “He had excellent business judgment. Good old-fashioned common sense. He was fair, but tough. He expected much of himself and of those who worked for him. His employees loved him dearly. He was kindhearted, both in business

and in (philanthropy).” Pindoff is being remembered for that same generosity of spirit by the Canadian Red Cross. The Canadian Red Cross awarded the Pindoffs numerous citations for their charitable contributions, including the Order of the Red Cross, Companion in 2000. “This week, we have lost a great humanitarian, supporter and friend,” Conrad Sauve, secretary general and CEO of the Canadian Red Cross said in a Jan. 17 statement. “I speak for all of my colleagues at the Canadian Red Cross and in many of our sister societies around the world in expressing our sadness, as well as our gratitude for Mr. Pindoff’s tireless support, which touched the lives of countless people in need over the past two decades.” The couple also gave millions of dollars to those suffering from droughts in Africa, and to projects throughout the Americas and Asia, the Canadian Red Cross said. After the 2004 earthquake and tsunami in South Asia, the Pindoffs gave $5 million toward Canadian Red Cross relief and recovery efforts — the largest ever personal contribution to a Canadian Red Cross disaster appeal, the agency said in a statement. Pindoff leaves his wife and daughter, Sophia.

Casino is another tax grab: reader To the editor: So having a casino in Toronto would generate $400 million in revenues annually. Really? Generate from what: thin air? In reality, those $400 million would be funds that consumers would spend or save otherwise. Capturing them with a casino would likely diminish vital revenues of other economic agents that depend on these to sustain their businesses. If these $400 million were to be redistributed to taxpayers, for example under the form of a tax rebate, it may not matter much. But it does not seem to be on the table. Looks like just another tax grab to me.

Taking care in the cold weather

A

s Toronto grapples with its first significant cold snap of the season, we all must take the proper precautions to stay warm, but be ready to lend a hand to those who may need it. It’s during these cold stretches where strong community bonds are most valuable – making people aware of what services are available, protecting against safety risks and providing that sense of belonging to those at risk of feeling isolated. There’s a lot we can be doing. The city issued its first Extreme Cold Weather Alert of 2013 on Monday. These alerts are called when Environment Canada predicts a coming overnight temperature of -15 degrees Celsius or lower without wind chill. The alert also triggers additional homeless services in the city. Getting people someplace warm is crucial. If you wish to help, there are opportunities to volunteer your time and donate goods, which can be put to good use. our view Visit www.volunteertoronto.ca to review what opportunities Make are out there. Call 311 if you see someone you think needs street community outreach assistance. connections While the issue of homelessness may not be readily apparent in your own neighbourhood, there are community-building tasks you can undertake during these times that have a significant impact. Cold weather means less outdoor interaction with our neighbours – especially those with mobility challenges. There’s nothing stopping you from paying a visit to a neighbour to check in on them and have a chat. It may be snow shovelling that’s needed or keeping walkways and stairs salted to prevent ice build-up. Interaction is an important building block of a community. Community-building exercises don’t need to take huge numbers of people and hours of planning to be successful. There’s always something we can do. Even a short conversation can help you to get getting to know your neighbours a little better and forge a stronger community bond. While some temperature relief is expected early next week and this cold snap will relent, these are prudent steps to follow. Winter is far from over, but even when the season changes getting to know the people we share a common bond with can lead to a healthier and happier community. Ultimately, at a time when interaction with our neighbours is limited by the cold temperatures, now is when we need to ensure we’re looking out for each other. newsroom

Del Grande’s decision to step down puts a bitter cap on budget process M

ike Del Grande’s abbreviated tenure as Mayor Rob Ford’s first budget chief will almost certainly not be remembered the way that the ScarboroughAgincourt councillor would wish it. Del Grande quit the job last week, providing a bitter cap to Toronto council’s chaotic and graceless debate of Toronto’s 2013 operating and capital budget. He went in with a chip on his shoulder, warning councillors that he would likely quit the job if they made even a single change to the budget he and Ford’s executive committee presented. That in itself was an unreasonable ultimatum; to ask Toronto’s divided council to leave his budget alone. If that were the only provocation, his resignation could reasonably be dismissed as a childish snit. But Del Grande’s pride sustained deeper wounds,

THE CITY

david nickle

when Ford himself tore a hole in his own budget, first voting for a mischievous motion by York West Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti to eliminate the budget’s two per cent property tax, and when that failed, voting to add $3.1 million to the firefighters’ budget. Del Grande had spent the past few months standing firm against firefighters’ demands. He had every reason to believe the mayor had his back. Who could blame him for resigning, when that turned out not to be the case, and in fact he had always been on his own? The reality, of course, is that Del Grande was always on his own as budget chief — often by his own

design. Where past budget chiefs had divided work on the budget among their committee members, Del Grande took on much of it himself. He was often sharp with deputations to his committee, that came to complain about the cuts his budgets would impose on various programs. Earlier on, he would dig in his heels on these matters, and leave it to council to sort it out. Toward the end, though, it was clear that he took the job of balancing the city’s financial needs against its social and infrastructure needs very seriously. In 2012, when the public came to depute, Del Grande grilled each one about what it was they wanted, and how much it would cost. The list he kept posted during the meeting seemed at first like the kind of object lesson you’d use to teach a spendthrift teenager about household budgeting. Oh we of little faith.

When it came time to wrap up the budget, Del Grande emerged with a proposal, to raise property taxes a hair and restore funding to various areas of need, raised convincingly enough by deputants. It was a significant gesture — but not significant enough for the needs of city council, and not even enough for the political needs of the mayor. In the end, it is not likely enough to solidify the story of Del Grande’s short time chairing the city’s budget committee as one of a balanced, thoughtful financial architect committed to rational budgeting for the good of all, as he might have wished. To do that would have taken the one thing that he determined last week he didn’t have: Time.

albion accident: This is what’s left of a Mazda involved in an accident with another vehicle at the intersection of Albion Road and Martin Grove Road on Saturday morning, which ended up wrapped around a light standard. Police from 23 Division and traffic services are investigating. The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital. No word on his condition.

Man faces nine charges in attempted murder investigation, handgun seized A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with last Friday’s shooting at an Etobicoke strip club in which a male victim in his 20s was shot in the face. Police responded to the House of Lancaster at 689 The Queensway at around 2:38 a.m. Friday, Jan. 11 after receiving a call reporting the sound of multiple gunshots in the area. Officers located the unnamed victim, who was struck in the face by a bullet, outside the club. He was taken to hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

On Thursday, Jan. 17, Kyle Henry, 19, of Toronto was arrested after officers from 22 Division’s Major Crime Unit executed a search warrant at an apartment on Tyndall Avenue. It is also alleged that a 9mm handgun was seized during the search warrant.

court appearance

Two men face numerous break-andenter-related charges after Toronto police recovered approximately $150,000 in stolen goods, including high-end tools. Last Thursday, Toronto police in partnership with Halton regional police executed six search warrants at three addresses in Toronto and Mississsauga. Officers recovered Samsung televisions, nautical equipment, high-end industrial-grade tools, including Hilti, Makita and Dolmar, chainsaws, lawn equipment, hair treatment oils, kitchen faucets and designer sunglasses, police said. The most expensive item recovered is a welding machine valued at $6,000, investigating major crime Det. Bruno Miron said at a Monday morning news conference that displayed the stolen items at 22 Division’s Bloor Street West station. While the majority of property recovered is from Etobicoke businesses, police said they believe some items may have come from businesses in Oakville and in Mississauga. Some property recovered was lost in 2011. Not all the recovered property has been claimed, police said.

Police urge any commercial business owners who reported an entry into their business and who recognize any of the property to contact 22 Division Major Crime via email at victoria.balice@torontopolice. on.ca or by calling 416-808-2200 or Det.-Const. Jodi Richmond of Halton regional police at 905-8254747 ext. 2286. The 22 Division Major Crime Unit launched an investigation last Nov. 9 into a large-scale commercial break-and-enter at a Hilti tool store on Kipling Avenue after uniform officers on patrol responded to a call of a security alarm at the business, Miron said. Further investigation led to other break-and-enters being investigated in the Mississauga area. Police charged two men following the execution of the search warrants. Drazen Ivankovic, 47, of Toronto is charged with one count of break and enter, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime over ($5,000), possession of property obtained by crime trafficking and possession of burglar tools. Ile Beros, 48, of Mississauga is charged with one count of break and enter, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime over ($5,000) and possession of property obtained by crime trafficking.

Suspects wanted in abduction, beating Police are searching for four male suspects wanted for abducting and beating a 33-year-old man with a tire iron on Monday. According to police, the victim was getting out of his car in the area of Kipling and Finch West avenues Monday night at around 10 p.m. when the four masked suspects grabbed him and pulled him into

his vehicle. The suspects bound the victim’s wrists, covered his face and drove the vehicle to an unknown location, where they beat him with a tire iron and then fled the scene. The victim sustained major injuries and was transported to hospital by Toronto EMS. All four suspects are described as black.

FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com With a focus on moving forward, the newly appointed interim director of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) vowed to work hard at restoring public confidence in a system left shaken after her predecessor’s resignation as a result of a plagiarism incident. Flanked by TDSB staff, a poised Donna Quan spoke to reporters about the importance of focusing on students’ education and working as a team to ensure the best possible learning environment is achieved. “We will reach out to partners and parents to ensure the TDSB remains one of the finest education systems in the world,” Quan said last Friday at TDSB headquarters on Yonge Street, north of Sheppard Avenue. Quan, who has more than 30 years of education experience, was chosen as interim

director Wednesday, Jan. 16, following two lengthy trustee meetings. Quan accepted the position after former TDSB director Chris Spence resigned Thursday, Jan. 10, after admitting to plagiarizing parts of an op-ed piece he wrote for a newspaper on Jan. 5. Served as deputy director Quan, who served as the board’s deputy director for the past two and a half years, began her education career in 1983 with teaching roles in a number of elementary schools, including French immersion. The married mother of three daughters began her career with the TDSB in 1985, where she established one of the first non-profit schoolbased Early Years childcare centres at Faywood Arts-Based Curriculum School in North York. Quan has held various positions within the board, includ-

ing principal and families of schools superintendent. Quan, who praised Spence for his “tremendous leadership” as director, acknowledged it had been a less than breezy week at the board. stormy week “The past week has been stormy but the storm shall pass,” she said. Chris Bolton, chair of the TDSB, said the focus is on getting things back to an even keel before selecting someone permanent to fill the post. “We’re not even considering what the future looks like in that regard,” he said. “We have to ensure stability and leadership of the TDSB is firmly in place, then figure out what comes next.” When asked if she’s hoping to continue her new job permanently, Quan said her immediate focus is on uniting her team and delivering the best possible education system to students.

City Hall

Ford’s conflict of interest appeal ruling to be released Friday DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

prosecuted the case against Ford, at 9:30 a.m.

The final word on Mayor Rob Ford’s appeal to save his job in the face of a conflict of interest conviction will come down Friday, morning. The decision from a three-judge Divisional Court panel will be handed out to lawyers representing Ford, and the legal team, led by prominent Toronto lawyer Clayton Ruby, who

posted online at 10:30 a.m. An hour later, the decision will be posted online. Ruby told Toronto Community News that all the parties had agreed not to discuss the decision until it’s released at 10:30 a.m. Ruby wouldn’t comment or speculate on the case any further.

But for Ford and Toronto Council, the stakes could not be higher. If the appeal is denied, then Ford will stand convicted of violating the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. The conviction stems from a February 2012 debate at council, over whether Ford should be required to repay $3,150 in donations made by lobbyists to his personal football charity. Ford both spoke on the matter and voted in favour of forgiving the

requirement. Under the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, the minimum sentence for violation is immediate removal from office — and that was the sentence that Superior Court Justice Charles Hackland handed down. If the appeal is upheld, Ford can continue as mayor. If it’s not, then Hackland’s sentence stands and Ford will no longer be mayor and he will have 48 hours to vacate the office.

At that point, Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday will step in as acting mayor, while council decides how to fill the position for the remainder of the term. Council can either choose to appoint a mayor, or hold a byelection. If they decide to appoint, they could choose anyone – including Rob Ford himself. A byelection, meanwhile, would cost an estimated $9 million.

First ‘non-objective’ art show at civic centre Etobicoke artist Ina Puchala is among eight artists whose work will be showcased at the Etobicoke Civic Centre’s art gallery for a month starting on Sunday. The art exhibit Out of Bounds opens to the public with a reception this Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the civic centre at 399 The West Mall at Burnhamthorpe Road. The art show is dedicated entirely to so-called nonobjective works of art by Zora Buchanan, Susan Collacott, Bianka Guna, Lila Lewis Irving, Vallery Mokrytzki, Bill Philipovich, Puchala and Julita Sidonia Wolanska. No n - o b j e c t i ve a r t i s unbounded by representatives of the natural world, unlike abstract art, which is by definition as abstraction of an object, explained Denise Dickin, senior arts consultant with the city. Most of the work in the exhibition is colourful, largescale pieces.

Cycle Toronto is inviting everyone to take part in the Coldest Day of the Year Ride. The annual ride urges Torontonians to take to the streets on their bikes to celebrate and encourage winter cycling. While the weather may not always cooperate, typical Toronto winter days are marked more by cold temperatures than by inclement snow or icy conditions. Cycle Toronto (formerly the Toronto Cyclists Union) has included a set of winter riding and gear tips on its website, www.cycleto.ca, and is inviting cyclists to support the organization by buying a pair of Cycle Toronto socks. The organization is also encouraging those who do not own a bicycle to take a BIXI bike out for a free spin for the ride. The Coldest Day of the Year Ride will depart from

IN BRIEF the corner of Armoury and Chestnut streets, right behind city hall at noon Wednesday, Jan. 30. Anyone looking to reserve a BIXI bike is asked to make a reservation by emailing siva.v@cycleto.ca by tomorrow.

City

Toronto budget chief Del Grande resigns DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande resigned from the position of budget chief last Wednesday, evening, hours after Toronto Council passed an amended $ 9 . 4 b i l l i o n o p e ra t i n g budget. His resignation came as little surprise to councilwatchers. As his committee finished off the recommended budget, he warned councillors if the budget were heavily amended, he would not stay on in the post he has held for the past two years under Mayor Rob Ford. Council did amend that budget — adding $12 million in new spending, including funding to retain fire stations and fire trucks, money for student nutrition programs and funding for additional daycare spaces. Ford sup-

Mike Del Grande resigned as the city’s budget chief.

ported the amendments to Toronto Fire’s budget. But in an interview with CBC’s Metro Morning, Del Grande said the tipping point was a motion by St. Paul Councillor Joe Mihevc, asking for more transparency in the budget process. “I’m absolutely baffled,” he said. “I did all kinds of

things with respect to transparency.” In his speech at council, Del Grande said he felt as though the motion was a vote of non-confidence in his leadership, and complained he had been “vilified” for running a frugal and “evidencebased” budget process the past two years. When the votes were finished, Del Grande was notably absent from a news conference where other allies of Ford stood with the mayor to talk about the 2013 budget accomplishments. In a statement, Ford thanked Del Grande on behalf of Toronto taxpayers. “He has been a key leader on my team, helping Toronto turn the corner and achieve the sustainable budget that we passed Wednesday. I look forward to the contribution he will make as a member of the Toronto Police Services Board.”

Transportation central to quality of life: chief planner DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto’s got a lot going for it – parks, good transit and a strong manufacturing base – but Toronto’s chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat said that in order for the city to continue to prosper, it’s going to have to be “all hands on deck.” “Now is the time where we can once again take action for great city building,” said Keesmaat Monday, Jan. 14, at a luncheon hosted by the Toronto Board of Trade. “Now is the moment where we need to pause and think reactively about the legacy we’re creating. And to do this, we’re going to have to face some of the most challenging transportation issues of our time.” Keesmaat is a relative newcomer to Toronto’s bureaucracy, hired by the Ford administration last summer to take on the job of overseeing land use planning across the City of Toronto.

In a few weeks, she and her staff will be embarking on a public consultation process, looking at what she said was one of the key elements of city land-use planning: transportation. most challenging issue She called transportation “one of the most challenging issues of our time.” “At the end of the day, how we design our city has a profound impact on how we move about,” said Keesmaat. “I would like to suggest that transportation planning is not ancillary to our quality of life – it is central to it. The labour attractiveness of the Greater Toronto Area is tarnished by crippling congestion.” She added that transportation planning “is one of persistent weaknesses today.” She pointed out that a quarter of commuters travel 45 minutes or more one way to work—and that amounts to a serious drag on the local

economy. Ke e s m a a t l a i d o u t a number of challenges to effectively planning the city – not the least of which, she said, was the highly charged political environment at city hall. “We of course have a political culture that’s very challenging,” she said. “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.” Ultimately, Keesmaat said that political culture, as well as the city’s development community, have to find a way to encourage more residential development along the city’s avenues – stretches of road that have been earmarked in the city’s official plan for both transit and midrise development.

Life with kids can be expensive, especially when afterschool activities start to multiply or older children head off to university or college. Parents should consider taking advantage of all the eligible tax credits to help decrease their 2012 tax bill, and offers the following tips on what to look for: Start on day one: As part of the registration process, most hospitals will inform the Canada

Revenue Agency (CRA) when a child is born. This means you should start receiving the GST/ HST Credit, Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) and the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) for your new addition. Active kids: The Children’s Fitness Amount is a federal non-refundable credit worth up to $75 in tax savings for children younger than 16 who are enrolled in an eligible program of physical activity. Not every

program meets the eligibility guidelines, so do your homework. Artistic kids: The Children’s Art Credit is a federal non-refundable credit worth up to $75 for children younger than 16 enrolled in an eligible program such as language classes, Girl Guides or Scouts, art classes or ballet lessons. The organization should provide a receipt. Save for school: Parents can open a Registered Educa-

tion Saving Plan (RESP) as soon as their child has a Social Insurance Number Designed to help save for a child’s post-secondary education, parents can make up to $50,000 in RESP lifetime contributions and receive contributions from the gov-

ernment as part of the Canada Education Savings Grant. It’s important to keep all your receipts to ensure that you can make all the claims to which you are entitled. Be sure you don’t miss a thing by using reliable and accurate tax

preparation software, or seeking the help of a professional. The tax savings will certainly never equal all the expenses of raising kids, but each dollar saved helps at least a little bit. –newscanada.com
