Mountaineers RELAY FOR LIFE host annual lacrosse day this Saturday The Mimico Mountaineers is hosting its annual lacrosse day at Mimico Arena on Saturday with a full slate of eight rep and junior games. Remembering who the opponents are will be very easy for both players and spectators – every game is against Halton Hills. The top-tier rep boys teams take to the floor first, one right after the other, starting with peanut (9 a.m.), tyke (10 a.m.), novice (11 a.m.), peewee (noon), bantam (1 p.m.) and midget (2 p.m.). Then come the junior games: junior C at 4 p.m. and junior B at 7 p.m. The Mimico girls play field lacrosse and are scheduled for a tournament in Oshawa. A busy weekend house league schedule will continue Saturday at Long Branch Arena and back at Mimico Arena on Sunday and Monday night. The house league season comes to an end the following weekend with the younger divisions (peanut to peewee) on Saturday, June 22 and the older divisions (bantam, midget) on Monday, June 24 – using both arenas. Before this busy flourish, however, the association will hold its annual gala dinner Friday, June 14. Mimico Arena is located at 31 Drummond St.

City council set to debate Humbertown development The Humber Valley Village Residents Association (HVVRA) is encouraging local residents and supporters to turn out to Toronto City Council in full force this week, as councillors debate the future of Humbertown Plaza. Councillors are expected to vote on an application put forth by First Capital Realty (FCR) tomorrow at around 1:30 p.m. The application would see the demolition of the existing Humbertown plaza to make way for the construction of a total of 604 residential units in three condo-retail towers and 28 three-storey townhomes. FCR’s proposal also calls for two two-storey commercial buildings, which would allow for the retention and expansion of the retail offerings currently on the site. The HVVRA, whose members have long argued that the FCR proposal is “too big, too dense, and too tall” for their village-like community, are hoping at least 250 local residents will make it out to Wednesday’s meeting in a show of opposition to FCR’s plans, said Niels Christensen, president of the HVVRA. “It is vitally important that city council supports the Etobicoke York Community Council decision of rejecting the FCR bid, and equally important that they support the resolution for a Secondary Plan review of Humber Valley Village,” Christensen said in a statement. Endorsed by west-end

councillors at the May 14 meeting of the Etobicoke York Community Council, a Secondary Plan review, he added, is necessary as Humber Valley Village grows and expands in the future. If given the green light from Toronto City Council, a Secondary Plan review for Humber Valley Village and its surrounding neighbourhoods would consider: the impact of the Humbertown redevelopment’s increased traffic on neighbouring streets; how to preserve the neighbourhood character of Humber Valley Village; how development at Humbertown will affect businesses in the Kingsway and Islington Business Improvement Areas; the impact of development on schools, transit and infrastructure; and what size of developments will be allowed as the aging three-storey walkup apartments surrounding Humbertown are redeveloped in the future. “Although attendees do not have an opportunity to speak at city council, the HVVRA is handing out T-shirts to our supporters stating ‘Humbertown – We Can Do Better,’ to show council members the strength of our community support as we sit in the council chambers,” Christensen said in a statement. ~ Cynthia Reason For more information, go to www.hvvra.ca or visit www. etobicokeguardian.com for past stories on this issue.

TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Etobicoke resident Valerie Gibson has endured the misfortune of having every Etobicoke home she has ever owned robbed. What she did not expect was to have her house burgled — when she was home. A thief or thieves rifled through her bedrooms and stole her jewelry on Thursday, May 30 around 3:30 p.m. while she worked in her front garden. “If I’m out, my home is like Fort Knox. I have an alarm system. There are alarms

and bars on the windows. I have double locks. I live on a ravine. I was absolutely taken aback by this because I’ve taken so many precautions,” Gibson said. What she didn’t do is lock her back door while working in her front garden. Residents do not typically set their home alarms while out gardening. “Even though you are home, your home can still be entered,” Toronto police Const. Wendy Drummond said. “Almost all crime is a crime of opportunity....You need to remove the opportunity. Lock the door.”

Include funding talk at Gardiner forum

T

ransit funding should be more than just buses, subways and GO trains. Transportation is a more accurate way to look at getting around the Greater Toronto Area. The future of the Gardiner Expressway is being debated – again. With the Environment Assessment (EA) by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto now back on the table, the latest in the circular discussions is coming up Thursday, the day after the two parties hold a media briefing to discuss the EA. The future of the Gardiner comes up every few years, but nothing concrete has ever come of these discussions. The long-term rehabilitation of the Gardiner is not in question – that needs to happen. However, what exactly does that mean, and how is a city like Toronto going to handle it? The entire length of the decaying expressway will eventually come up for debate, but Thursday’s forum focuses on the eastern portion from Jarvis Street to our view the Don Valley Parkway (DVP). believe front-and-centre Make transit, at We this discussion should be highways work funding. Not just the $505 miltogether lion approved by council to rehabilitate the Gardiner, but how will we maintain whatever we decide to do with it – keep it standing, bury it under Lake Shore Boulevard or dismantle it all together? Whatever the decision, funding is rarely mentioned – like the public transit discussion, everyone is concerned about today, not 10, 25, 50 years from now. Despite the obvious connection between public transit and the highways, expressways and parkways that encircle this city, no one is discussing how they should work together. If there is an effort out there to come up with a cohesive transportation plan, we’re not seeing it. Within the transit funding tools supported by Metrolinx to pay for the province’s Big Move plan, there should also be funding for our roads and highways. Regional sales tax, development charge, parking space levy, and fuel tax are on the table to fund transit. Yet, something like Highway Tolls to help maintain the Gardiner is not being discussed. Or, at the end of the day, maybe we should hand over the Gardiner to the province to include in its transportation portfolio together with the 400 series highways. And while we’re at it, toss in the DVP.

Bracing for a frustrating tennis season

W

ell, I played my first tennis match of the season over the weekend and I’m not off to the best start. I’m officially zero for one. But it wasn’t the defeat that was so troubling, but how it was done and the guy who beat me, my buddy Shawn. What really sticks in my craw is that he was wearing a monstrous new knee brace roughly the size of Jabba the Hutt’s belly. Without that brace, I wipe the court with him. With it, I back off and he throttles me for fun, 6-0, 6-0. Well, I was prepared to take my lumps like a man, when, get this, Shawn hops over the net for the traditional post-match handshake. Oops, did I say hop? Forgive me. To call it merely a hop is not doing justice to that athletic tour de force. It was a breathtaking triple salchow during which he soared higher than Patrick Chan. And the

jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY icing on the cake? He stuck the landing. I mean really stuck the landing. I was livid. “How the heck did you do that?” “It wasn’t that difficult,” Shawn replied matter-offactly. “I just took a long approach run. Then got into the tuck position to harness my legendary power and sprung up ever so gracefully on my little tippy toes.” “You know what I meant, funny guy. How’d you do manage to pull off a move like that, wonky knee and all?” “What makes you think I have a bad knee,” he asked. “Exhibit A, your honour, “I answered, pointing to said imposing brace. “I hate to break it to you, but the knee’s fine. I only wear this contraption to psych out pigeons like you. And as you can see it works like a charm.”

“But how can you wear that thing and sleep nights?” I wailed. “I told you, I put it on for matches only. I take it off long before I go to bed.” “And that masquerade doesn’t eat away at your conscience?” “Hey, I win, baby. That’s all that matters. Isn’t that what Nike says is the most important thing in life? Next to buying all their over-priced stuff, of course.” “You didn’t win. I handed the match to you. I was afraid to make you even flinch dare you reinjure what I thought was a fragile leg.” Shawn just shrugged. “Look, I’d love to listen to you whine, really I would, but I have to scoot home and ice my knee.” “But didn’t you just get through telling me there was nothing wrong with it?” “There wasn’t, but in my haste to kick your butt from here to Mississauga I must have put the brace

on too tight by mistake because it’s starting to throb. I want to take care of it before I develop a real problem. You don’t mess with knees you know,” he needled. “So, you coming over for a brewski?” “After that stunt you just pulled? Forget it.” “Come on, Jamie. Don’t be such a spoilsport. I tell you what. I’m going up to the cottage for awhile. And to prove I’m not such a bad guy, I’ll let you borrow the brace until I come back so you can let it work it’s magic for you. Are you game?” “Well, I am playing Dale next week and I have yet to beat him all these years. Do you think it might help?” “Let’s just say, it wouldn’t hurt. Unless you put it on too tight by mistake.” Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. His column appears every Tuesday.

Privatization of garbage pickup the only way to go

Parents rally to save TDSB music program

To the editor: Re: ‘Accountability, money spent wisely needed,’ Letters, June 4 I have lived in Etobicoke for 72 years and I remember when the city garbage collector would spill garbage on the street and not clean it up. I a m s u re t h a t m o s t people will remember the damage staff would do to metal garbage cans so that after about six months of service the containers had to be replaced. I remember the union workers striking and blocking citizens from dropping their garbage off at designated depots. They not only blocked taxpayers from going to the sites, but in some cases, threatened them with violence. I also remember the stench of garbage piling

To the editor: I am a proud Etobicoke parent of a son who performs in his Grade 8 band, honour orchestra and stage band. I am also a concerned parent of a daughter in Grade 6 who wants to follow in her big brother’s footsteps, but is worried there will be no orchestra or stage band for her to join next year. Instrumental music programs across the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) are under attack. On June 19, trustees will vote to cut approximately half of the Itinerant Music Instructors (IMI) for a cost saving of only 0.07 per cent of the overall $2.7 billion budget. Many of the music instructors at Etobicoke junior and middle schools are IMIs. These skilled instrumental musicians travel from school to school providing special-

up on tennis courts and outdoor rinks creating not only a health hazard but a breeding ground for rats and other vermin while the union members picketed the sites using intimidation tactics which forced some seniors to store their garbage at home. Further to this, the seniors who could not drive to the temporary dump sites also had to store their rotting garbage at home. change coming The writer is spot on when she states that “They sense the changes coming where unions will rule again”. I for one, do not want to go back to the days when arrogant city staff pick up my garbage. I support the privatization of all garbage pickup through the City of Toronto. What sane taxpayer

wants the city workers and their union heads to rule over the voters? Having successfully contracted out garbage pickup here in Etobicoke we are saving money, as taxpayers we will not be faced with another strike by city workers and have to again endure their intimidation tactics and we are still providing good paying jobs to members of a union which thankfully is not CUPE. This should be the model and the standard for all garbage pickup throughout the City of Toronto. I hope that after the next city election we will have sufficient councillors who will move quickly on privatization so that all taxpayers will have the same service that I presently enjoy. Alex McKenna

ized instrumental music education to thousands of children each week. They are not paid from the school budget, but directly by the TDSB. High school music programs will also be hard hit by these cuts, as students will no longer arrive having had exposure to music at the middle school level and will be less likely to make music as one of their high school electives. We must urgently let the trustees, our MPPs and the premier know that we value music education and will not allow it to be cut from the TDSB budget. Here’s what you can do: Visit thepetitionsite.com and search for “TDSB Cuts.” Forward the link to everyone you know, whether they have school children or not. We have a goal of 10,000 signa-

tures. Please include your name and address to have your signature counted. Send an email, write a letter, or take the time to phone your trustee and MPP. Trustee contact info is available at the board website, tdsb.on.ca. Contact information for MPPs is available at ontla.on.ca. The TDSB’s music department’s own slogan is: A sound investment in today’s children, tomorrow’s leaders. Let’s hold them to it. Recall that when Mayor Rob Ford threatened to close libraries, it was the outcry from citizens who would not stand for it that prevented Toronto council from proceeding. We need a similar rally of support to turn this around. Our children deserve it. Trina Waddell

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

All of health’s needs now under one roof Humber Centre for Family Health brings together multiple health-care professionals

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

Contact list for family physicians

Etobicoke’s latest integrated health-care centre is now officially open. T h e Hu m b e r Ce n t re for Family Health, located adjacent to the NoFrills grocery store at 245 Dixon Rd. (at Islington Avenue), is a “comprehensive primary care facility” that brings a full slate of nine family physicians – plus registered nurses, a nurse practitioner, social workers and a variety of other health-care professionals – all together under one roof. “It’s a new way of looking at things,” Dr. Ralph Masi, chair of the Humber River Family Health Team, said of the Humber Centre for Family Health’s integrated approach during the centre’s official opening last week.

A list of the family physicians now located at Humber Centre for Family Health: w Dr. Abdullahi Berih - 416-247-8781 w Dr. James Choe - 416-248-9166 w Dr. Wilma De Groot - 416-249-0009 w Dr. Aida Hasic - 647-775-8282/647-775-8273 w Dr. Hanna Hinnawi - 416-235-2655 / 416-235-2751 w Dr. George Iwanchyshyn - 416-249-0009 w Dr. Arthur Kushner - 416-247-2193 w Dr. Robert McMillin - 416-248-0283 w Dr. Assefa Noza - 647-775-8281

range of services available The range of services and programs offered collaboratively by doctors and other health professionals, Masi added, “will greatly contribute to health promotion, illness prevention, and the management of chronic conditions.” “If any of you have been around as long as I have in medicine, you’ll begin to appreciate how really different this is from going to a physicians office all by themselves,” he added. “This is bringing everything all together.” In addition to the centre’s nine family physicians, the new Humber Centre for Family Health also boasts a Loblaw pharmacy, the Humber Eye Centre, Alpha Laboratories, the Helix Hearing Centre, a Family and Cosmetic Dentistry clinic, the Health Max Physiotherapy Clinic and HiTek Medical Imaging. Dr. Arthur Kushner, chief of the Department of Family and Community Medicine at Humber River Hospital and lead physician for the Humber River Family Health team, said the process of bringing that multitude of health-care pro-

fessionals and services under one “modern and welcoming” roof was both an exciting and challenging experience – one sure to reap many rewards. “The integration of so many disciplines will only enhance the patient experience and support our vision of improving access to primary care for our community,” he said. Patients of any one of the nine physicians practising at the Humber Centre for Family Health will now be eligible to receive care provided by the

members of an interdisciplinary team that also includes nurse practitioners, registered nurses, dietitians, social workers, and a chiropodist. Gail Czukar, executive director of the Humber River Family Health Team, said the focus of the Humber Centre for Family Health is on serving residents of all ages and backgrounds, with an emphasis on young families and their children and the aging population. As such, the centre is look-

ing forward to offering such varied programs as: diabetes prevention and management (nutritional and lifestyle counseling); seniors’ geriatric programs (assessments, fall prevention, nutrition, medication reviews, foot clinics); mental health and addictions treatment and support (individual, family and group counseling); education and self-management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma and smoking cessation; treatment and sup-

My personal thanks

go to the ministry for funding this team, to the Humber River Regional Hospital and (all involved) for their leadership in developing this very exciting concept and for bringing us here, where integrated health care is going to be offered by a number of providers. It’s a good thing for this community.”

Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration Notice of Public Drop-in Event We invite you to attend a public drop-in event to learn more about the upcoming reconfiguration of the Six Points interchange, at Bloor Street West, Dundas Street West and Kipling Avenue.The existing interchange will be completely reconstructed to support the development of Etobicoke Centre. Date: Time: Location:

Tuesday, June 17, 2013 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (presentation at 7:30 p.m.) St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church 3819 Bloor St. W.

Background Etobicoke Centre, running along Dundas Street West from Shorncliffe Road to Islington Avenue, will develop as the urban focal point for the western part ofToronto.The Six Points area will become a vital mixed-use community, including a community hub with recreational, cultural and institutional uses. The City ofToronto completed an Environmental Assessment on the reconfiguration of the Six Points Interchange in 2007.This study determined that replacing the existing bridges with an at-grade intersection would best support the development of Etobicoke Centre. Streetscape and public open space designs throughout the new intersection were finalized in the Etobicoke Centre Public SpaceStreetscape Plan, completed by the City in 2012. The detailed technical design of the new intersection is now being completed. Construction is expected to start in late 2014. More information and links to previous and related projects are available on the City's project web page: toronto.ca/involved/projects/6points. For more information If you would like more information about this project, please contact: Mike Logan Senior Public Consultation Coordinator City of Toronto Metro Hall, 19th Fl., 55 John St. Toronto, ON M5V 3C6 Tel: 416-392-4360 Fax: 416-392-2974 TTY: 416-338-0889 E-mail: mlogan@toronto.ca Visit: toronto.ca/involved/projects/6points Issue Date: June 11, 2013 Information will be collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Public meeting on future of Gardiner Expressway Thursday THIS CANADA DAY WEEKEND, GET YOUR SUMMER STARTED AT THE TORONTO RIBFEST! FRIDAY, FRIDAY, JUNE JUNE 28 28 TO TO MONDAY, MONDAY, JULY JULY 1ST 1ST OPEN OPEN 11am 11am -- 11pm 11pm EACH EACH DAY! DAY! Live music, big attractions and, most of all, GREAT ribs await you and your friends at Toronto’s favourite Canada Day Weekend celebration! There’s a LOT for you this year at Toronto Ribfest! Kidz Zone, Heroes Day, sports celebrities, Citizenship Ceremony, a new midway, new foods, specialty vendors, and three stages with performances and great music and entertainment.

Residents will get a chance to sound off on the future of the Gardiner Expressway during a public meeting this week. The event will mark the first opportunity for public feedback since the resumption of an environmental assessment (EA) examining potential long term options for the eastern portion of the Gardiner and Lake Shore Boulevard. The EA looks at four main options for the Gardiner – all of them expensive and likely taking years to complete – including repairs in the hundreds of millions and tearing down the expressway completely. City engineers warn the Gardiner will become unusable in less than a decade if no action is taken. The meeting is Thursday, June 13, inside the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The City of Toronto officially opened its first separated cycle track – a lane for bicycles that is separated from traffic – on Sherbourne Street between Bloor Street and King Street on Monday. The Sherbourne cycle track has new features that distinguish it from the city’s painted bicycle lanes, including: buses don’t stop in the cycle track – the cycle track is raised to sidewalk level at bus stops to provide accessible passenger loading; green-coloured bike boxes that provide a safe area for cyclists to wait while making a left turn have been put in place; parking next to the bicycle lane has been removed and lay-bys have been provided at six key locations to facilitate pickup/dropoff activity and commercial deliveries.

Do you have bad beauty habits? As cosmetic procedures and beauty trends are passed down from generation to generation, some women may be unsure what is best for them and which habits may need tweaking. According to a recent survey, a majority of women say they spend anywhere from $5 to $15 per month on beauty products, not including skincare products. But are those efforts fruitful? Here are some com-

mon beauty faux pas that women likely want to avoid. Scrubbing skin: Dermatologists say the skin naturally sheds dead cells, so for most people it is unnecessary to use harsh exfoliants or scouring pads to rid the skin of dead cells. In fact, exfoliating too much can cause irritation and excess dryness. Try to exfoliate no more than twice a week. Even those with oily skin should scale

back, as exfoliating too frequently can cause oil glands to produce more oil. Use an easy hand when exfoliating to avoid redness. Popping pimples: It can be quite difficult to resist popping a pimple, but doing so can cause irritation and spread bacteria, and may cause more blemishes as a result. If you cannot resist popping the pimple, cleanse the area first, use a warm cloth or steam to help

FAMILY DENTISTRY Dr. Alex Berger

bring the blemish to a head and use tissue-covered fingers to apply gentle pressure. Then use an antibacterial cleanser to clean the area again. Wrapping wet hair in a towel: Gathering wet locks together and twisting them into a towel is a recipe for damage and breakage. Gently squeeze hair dry with the towel and then use a detangling spray to make it easier to comb out knots. Failing to clean makeup tools: All those brushes, wands and

applicators need to be routinely washed with a mild cleanser and allowed to air dry – otherwise, they become hosts for bacteria and mold. You can risk infection by using a dirty brush near eyes or nasal passages. Wash tools at least once a week if you wear makeup daily. Layering products: You may have a relative beauty arsenal tucked into your medicine cabinet, but while these products may work well on their own, there is no way to know how they will interact. Less is more when using different beauty serums. Experiment with each item separately to gauge skin reaction and if an allergy is present. Poor washing habits: Some women fall into bed at

night without washing makeup from their faces. While this is alright once in a while, it may lead to irritation or blemishes over time. Surprisingly, too much washing of the face can be just as bad, especially if you are soaping up in the morning as well. You could be stripping your face of helpful oils at the start of the day, when skin needs added protection from the elements. Stick to washing your face at night so it can naturally restore itself while you sleep. Looking good requires effort, but some beauty habits popular among women might be doing more harm than good.

While many people opt for whitening treatments to ensure pearly whites, steering clear of foods that are notorious for staining teeth is also a good idea. The outer layer of the tooth is very porous, and dark-colored foods and beverages may stain teeth more easily. The following items are known to discolor teeth: • Black coffee • Tea • Red wine • Cola

• Dark fruit juices • Popsicles with artificial coloring • Soy sauce • Balsamic vinegar • Tomato sauce • Blueberries • Beets • Curry Minimize the consumption of these foods and use a straw to drink acidic or staining beverages to keep teeth as white as they can be.

>>>from page 1 guns Etobicoke-wide – half the total number of firearms collected across the city. Sgt. Tim Burrows of 22 Division, who was responsible for collecting three of the eight guns handed over in south Etobicoke, said 22 Division had seen both handguns and long rifles – plus a “considerable amount” of ammunition – handed over to police custody during just the first week of the program. “Twenty-two is a big division, so naturally there’s lots of homes within that division that would have registered firearms and firearms that have been handed down and inherited by family members,” he said. “What the Pixels for Pistols program does is it gives those people who really don’t want to have that firearm in their home anymore the opportunity to turn it in.” Launched on Monday, June 3, the two-week Pixels for Pistols program is a partnership between Toronto police, Henry’s Camera, Olympus Canada and Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, whereby Torontonians who surrender their unwanted firearms to police will receive an Olympus VG-160 digital camera in exchange. Ian Landy, president and CEO of Henry’s, said the idea behind the Pixels for Pistols

program was born shortly after a Scarborough Henry’s store was robbed at gunpoint in February 2008. Luckily no one was hurt during the incident – and the criminals responsible were soon caught and convicted – but Landy said the Henry’s team still felt the need to give back. And so the Pixels for Pistols program was launched in November 2008. “That 2008 event resulted in the most successful firearm exchange in the history of the Toronto Police Service with the following results: 1,897 firearms, 304 non-firearms (including pellet guns and replica guns), 58,217 rounds of ammunition, and 1,486 boxes of assorted ammunition,” Landy recalled at the 2013 program’s launch last week. Toronto police Chief William Blair said that while there is “no expectation whatsoever” that this year’s Pixels for Pistols program will draw out any criminals to turn in their guns in exchange for a digital camera, police are just as grateful to law-abiding citizens for turning in their unwanted firearms. Afterall, according to former Attorney General Roy McMurtry, nearly 30 per cent of all guns used in crimes have been stolen from law-abiding citizens. “There is both a legal and

moral obligation to ensure your firearms are stored safely and are secure against theft from those who would use those firearms to victimize our fellow citizens,” Blair said at last week’s Pixels for Pistols launch. “It can be an onerous responsibility, so I want to let the people of Toronto know that they don’t need to worry about that responsibility. If you want to dispose of that firearm, you can do so safely (through the Pixels for Pistols program).” That sentiment was echoed by Burrows, who said Etobicoke officers are just as happy to collect antique and non-functioning guns as they are working ones. “Just the fact that it could be held out and used as a threat is enough...a young person that’s brandishing a stolen firearm, working or not, if a police officer comes across them, they generally do not have the time to determine whether that’s a working firearm or not, and they will treat the threat as if it is a real, working gun,” Burrows said. “Any time you can take any weapon off the streets, I think that’s a good thing for the community and the safety of that community.”

How the program works If you have an unwanted gun you’d like to surrender to Toronto police for safe disposal, call 416-808-2222 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. before Monday, June 17 to be eligible for the Pixels for Pistols program. Please note: firearms CANNOT be brought into any police facility and

CANNOT be exchanged at any Henry’s location. Those who participate in the gun amnesty program and turn in an operational gun will receive an Olympus VG-160 PLUS point and shoot camera, plus a School of Imaging gift card – for a total retail value of $175. The “reward card” may then be redeemed at one of

Toronto Community Housing criticized by city ombudsman DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com The Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) needs to deal with its senior residents more fairly, and end the “callous and unfair treatment of” many of its elderly tenants, according to a report by Toronto’s Ombudsman

Fiona Crean released Thursday, June 6. The repor t from the ombudsman’s office will be going to this week’s council meeting, and it is the result of an investigation into the way Toronto Community Housing deals with its vulnerable tenants. It stemmed from the

death of 81-year-old tenant Al Gosling, who was evicted from TCHC for arrears on his rent. He died homeless just before his 82nd birthday. A judicial inquiry by Justice Patrick LeSage delivered a set of recommendations to Toronto Community Housing — recommendations Crean found have not been followed.

“My investigation has found TCHC staff did not change their practices,” she said. “Instead there’s been a pattern of callous and unfair treatment of many seniors, including at least one case in which a tenant died shortly after eviction.” Crean highlighted several cases, with the names of indi-

viduals obscured. A Ms. F, who suffers developmental disabilities and had lived in her home for 30 years without incident, faced eviction after TCHC after they received noise complaints. Crean found the TCHC wasn’t following its own policies requiring early intervention and treating eviction as

a last resort. The TCHC also has no clear policy for how long elderly tenants have to pay their rent. The ombudsman’s recommendations have all been accepted by the TCHC.

At HearCare, we wonder why people who are having trouble hearing put off seeking help for so long. On the average, ten years elapse before doing something about poor hearing. Is this because people just do not feel their hearing loss is ‘bad enough’or that they can get by? Or do they worry about the cost of hearing aids,or that they will be‘too noticeable?’ Have they heard that hearing aids do not really help? We suspect that many people do

not even know how bad their hearing might be.They turn up the volume on the television, ask for repetitions, feel left out of conversations, or find other causes for their poor communication. Often family members are more aware of the hearing difficulty as they are the ones that need to keep repeating or have to shout to be heard. As hearing loss usually occurs gradually, many people do not realize that their hearing has deteriorated. Instead of recognizing the difficulty they are

experiencing as hearing loss, people will feel that others are mumbling,that the telephone does not work as well as it used to, or that people speak too quickly or soft. There are multiple emotional and psychological side effects of untreated hearing loss,including: • Avoidance of everyday activities • Less enjoyment of social interactions • Sadness,anxiety,isolation The good news is something can be done. Hearing aids are easy to use

and very comfortable to wear and are incredibly effective in noisy environments.For people,who fear that hearing aids are too expensive,know that these devices are available at multiple price points. There is always something to suit every budget. The first step to better hearing is to have a full hearing evaluation.Whether you have hearing loss or not, find out about your hearing health.Call HearCare for a complimentary hearing test now, and discover the joys of hearing.

Build Toronto appointments will be behind closed doors

I

t’s Toronto council week this week – meaning at least two very long days of debate, amendments and maybe even policy. One of the bigger issues being dealt with at the meeting will be dealt with behind closed doors: the appointment of six new members of Toronto’s arms-length real estate company Build Toronto. Reconstituting the board is a prerequisite to finding a replacement for CEO Lorne Braithwaite. Expect a fight, as a number of councillors are concerned that vice chair Doug Ford is pushing to have Port Lands CEO Michael Kraljevic put in the job. Ford denies that he is doing so. haven drop-off for babies sought wsafe
