Humber Valley JMS wins Canadian robotics title TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com The concept of insulating power lines against destructive ice storms with paint infused with Anti-Freeze Proteins found in Siberian beetles has won an Etobicoke elementary school’s robotics team top prize in a national contest. Humber Valley Village Junior Middle School’s Category 10 robotics team beat 71 international teams to win in the research project category at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League International Open Canada 2014 held June 4-7 at University of Toronto’s downtown campus. FIRST Robotics Canada runs First Lego League (FLL), a program that introduces young students to real-world engineering challenges by engaging them to build Legobased robots designed to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. This year’s FLL competition’s challenge was Nature’s Fury, with student teams researching and presenting solutions to natural disasters. Humber Valley Village’s nine grades 6 and 7 students’ research led them to interview Yale University undergradu-

ate student Aaron Hakim by Skype. Hakim and his student colleagues’ research paper on the Siberian beetle’s AntiFreeze Protein implications for ice binding appeared on the cover of the April 2013 edition of The Journal of Biological Chemistry. The team then toured and asked questions at an Etobicoke company that designs and tests hydro towers. “You extract the AFP (AntiFreeze Protein) from the gene strand of a Rhagium inquisitor beetle. Then you insert it into E.coli, which duplicates quickly and reproduces the AFP gene, as well. You put it into a centrifuge to separate them and express the AFP,” team member Hewitt McGaughey, 12, explained. Taylor Thiele, 13, said one factor strongly differentiated their research from others’: “A lot of other teams presented mechanical solutions. Ours was a chemical solution.” The team also garnered top marks for creativity. They delivered their five-message research project presentation as a newscast. Anna Thomas, 12, wrote the script and played anchor, along with Keegan Saunders, 12. Team robotics engineer Luiza Lena performed the reporter role, interviewed families and provided ice storm power outage

statistics. Judges were suitably impressed. “It was very well researched with a global use of experts,” one judge wrote. Students won the FLL International Open Canada 2014 Research Award First Place, a twin Lego trophy to its win in January of the Ontario West Provincial FLL Championship Tournament Champion’s Award Second Place. Principal Romina BaronePace gathered eight of the nine winning team members in her office Wednesday morning for a media interview. “I’m very proud of them. I’m very impressed,” she said. “They invested so much of their personal time and really represented the school and Canada with great pride and sportsmanship.” Students put in more than 120 hours in sessions after school Tuesdays and Thursdays since September, as well as at night and on weekends. Team members are Luiza Lena, Taylor Thiele, Aaron Sbrocca, Anna Thomas, Keiran Pace, Ian Joseph, Hewitt McGaughey, Ian Harvey and Keegan Saunders with coach Dino Sbrocca.

ffordable housing in Toronto Centre. Improving opportunities for youth in Etobicoke North. Hospital mergers in Scarborough-Guildwood. Helping immigrants transition smoothly in Toronto. Accessibility in Parkdale-High Park. Should the city walk away from the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB)? These were just a few of the issues we put to provincial candidates leading up to tonight’s provincial election. So many more issues were raised throughout the campaign with those hoping to fill seats in the Ontario legislature – during debates, at your front door, or on the streets. Regardless of how you voted – our view or how you’re intending to vote – remaining politically engaged the results are tallied is far Affect change after more important. every day with We, the electorate, more often than not engage only during an active voice election campaign – when it’s exciting to do so. Rarely do we continue that engagement between elections. This reality is unfortunate. Change is made every day, when residents across the city (and the province) continue to push what is important to them. Granted, not everything makes it to the top of a growing list of issues, but not demanding better of our politicians certainly doesn’t change a thing. Health care, education, jobs, the economy – these are big ticket items that impact the entire province, but it’s the local issues like decisions at the OMB that impact a community and really makes a difference in the everyday lives of Torontonians. After the dust settles, and another provincial government is elected, it is time for residents to continue to push on those important issues. Send letters to your newly elected or re-minted MPP, attend town halls, join a residents’ association, bring your neighbours together to fight for something important. Do something. That way, when it’s time to head to the polls once again, you know that you’ve at least tried to make a difference.

A long municipal campaign is good for voters

N

early six months into Toronto’s marathon mayoral race, leading candidate Olivia Chow has presented a novel idea: cut six months off the race, and let things get rolling on Canada Day. It’s nothing that we haven’t heard before. Toronto elects a mayor like nobody else, with a campaign period starting on Jan. 2 and continuing until late October. If there’s high interest in the position that year – whether for a lack of incumbent or, as in the case this year, a polarizing one – voters can be subjected to news clips, debates, op-ed pieces and now clever YouTube videos with a foot in all four seasons. It’s expensive and daunting and sometimes a little boring. Well, maybe not that last. But Chow suggests that it is all a bit much – that there is nothing that

david nickle the city can be said in 10 months that can’t also be said in four. Chow does have a point. But it’s hard to say that a tiresome and lengthy debate about the future of our city is particularly harmful to that future. The fact is that while the campaign period runs a year, in times of complacency – the elections before the second terms of former mayors Mel Lastman and David Miller come to mind – the campaigns don’t really run that long at all. There was certainly some hand-wringing in 2006, when Miller gamely defended his mayoralty against city councillor Jane Pitfield and lawyer Stephen LeDrew, but that race didn’t really get going until the summer. And in 2000, Lastman

barely bothered to run a campaign, as only the late Tooker Gomberg ran against him. But in years where the choice is less clear, our long campaign period offers advantages to voters that might be easy to overlook. First, it allows us to meet the candidates – and the candidates to meet us. A good mayoral candidate will start making the rounds of community groups early and often, both for the purpose of fundraising and for the purpose of building a platform. When not abused, this is exceedingly healthy – it keeps municipal government real, in a way that other more distant governments often aren’t. It also allows candidates who may not have the highest profiles a chance to build those, outside the extraordinary advantages of celebrity and wealth that only a few can bring to the

table. Chow, for instance, entered the race with a well-established profile that included a well-timed book tour for her autobiography. John Tory entered the race a popular talk radio host with a long history in Toronto and Ontario politics. Rob Ford’s an incumbent from a wealthy family. So it’s good to be a Chow or a Tory or even a Ford in a four month campaign: not so much a Karen Stintz or a David Soknacki, who are still, six months in, struggling to build their own profiles. And unless we want to limit our mayoral choices to the rich and famous, it’s not so good to be us either. This is one issue that might be best to let lie.

Kipling has Residents must do their part to keep municipal election civil been a hazard As citizens we share a responsibility to participate for many years in civic affairs and uphold a To the editor: Several months ago, Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, promised the 2014 civic election would be a “blood bath”. Fears of a return to medieval politics may have been exaggerated, but the implication was clear: the Fords’ campaign would be a mix of reckless incivility and willful ignorance. However, there were reasons to believe the rest of the mayoral race would see a more respectful and thoughtful campaign. Advocates for this type of election did not expect a tea party, but hoped for something more enlightened than a frat party. This may have been too ambitious. The mayoral campaign to date has been a disappointment, marred by

To the editor: Kipling Avenue has been voted the third worst road in Ontario. It is not the first time Kipling Avenue has made the infamous Worst Roads list. This stretch of roadway had become increasingly hazardous over the last few years and it just happens to run through the bailiwick of Etobicoke North Councillor Doug Ford and previously his bother’s ward. The appalling condition of Kipling North is just one example of the Ford brothers’ indifference to the needs and concerns of Etobicoke residents. Derek Holloway

basic cilvility that is so vital to our democracy

nasty attack ads, sophomoric political stunts and simplistic slogans that are unlikely to provide Toronto with the vigorous debate of ideas it so badly needs. In fact, the one televised debate so far had more in common with The Gong Show, as tortuously delivered one liners eclipsed serious discussion of policy proposals. This is not responsible politics; this is the politics that facilitated a Ford election victory.

We know how that turned out: important public policy issues went unresolved; the city became more divided; and public cynicism increased. A f t e r t h e l a s t f o u r ye a r s, Torontonians are justifiably fatigued, yet we have serious challenges that require innovative prescriptions. Toronto residents have one of the longest commute times in North America, responsible for $6 billion in lost productivity each year. Our aging infrastructure requires immediate attention, at the same time the effects of climate change demand we invest in green infrastructure. Rising income inequality poses a serious long-term threat to our social fabric. Clearly this election is too important to leave to the political class. As

citizens we share a responsibility to participate in civic affairs and uphold a basic civility that is so vital to our democracy. In the remaining months leading to the election, there are things we can all do to foster a more responsible politics, including: n Talk to a friend or neighbour about their priorities for the city and share your ideas with them; n Resist making anonymous or uncivil comments online; n Attend an all-candidates meeting and ask a question; n Call out candidates who personally attack their opponents. We should not be bystanders to another divisive election. Together we can build a city and a civic politics to be proud of. Christopher Holcroft

Public consultation on development an empty gesture from politicians: reader To the editor: Re: ‘Residents shocked by progress of East Mall condo plan,” News, May 1. I read the recent article about the East Mall development and was disgusted, just shows the overall

mentality of the political powers and how they don’t really care what the people want or need, the people who voted them in to power as their representative. I had been to one of the meetings that gives voice to the public

and their concerns over development. In my opinion, it’s just a procedural requirement and as far as I could see it did not matter what any person of the public was saying, the deal was done, the city says

it was a go, within proper code and planning for expansion. The people don’t really have a say in anything. We get one vote and then we are suppose to just accept it – whatever rules and laws and taxes and fines

are levied upon us. It’s a sad world if you ask me. Government is supposed to be working for and with us, not rule us. The people matter. Troy Stacey

While hockey is such an integral part of life in Canada, a significant number of the community rinks in our country are in very poor condition. Many of the arenas we use today were funded by the federal government’s Centennial Fund Program back in 1967 and have not seen renovations since. Lowe’s is committed to grassroots hockey and ensuring that today’s youth are playing in a safe, accessible, and inspiring facilities. Some of our neighbourhood rinks are in dire need of a facelift, so Lowe’s Canada created the Rink Reno program with the goal of refurbishing two community arenas per year.

Hodan Nalayeh

TV host, Integration: Building a New Cultural Identity By Cynthia Reason

AS ONE OF 11 KIDS, HODEN NALAYEH immigrated to Canada from Somalia with her family at age six in 1984. A West Humber Collegiate Institute grad, Nalayeh received her bachelor of arts in communications from the University of Windsor, then a post-graduate certificate in broadcast journalism from Seneca College. She’s now the host and executive producer of City’s Integration: Building a New Cultural Identity. The weekly, half-hour program showcases the Somali-Canadian experience through stories that “empower, Staff photo/MARY GAUDET enlighten and inspire.” Now mid-way through its 26-episode first Hodan Nalayeh, host of City’s Integration, a show focusing on the success stories of Somali-Canadians, returned to season, Integration has, through the power of social media, spread Jamestown where she grew up with her 11 brothers and sisters. beyond Toronto to the international Somali Diaspora.

My family was one of the first Somali-Canadian families to arrive in Canada in 1984. I was turning seven when we arrived in Edmonton, Alberta, which was - 40 degrees in the middle of winter. My parents

2

arrived with 11 children, and we grew up in Alberta as one of the few Somalis there for many years. My mom, however, thought people thrive better in networks, so she wanted us to relocate to

Toronto because it was better connected here and more Somalis were coming here in the 1990s. So we relocated to Toronto in 1992 and we moved to 79 John Garland Blvd.

What was the neighbourhood like at that time?

There was a lot of diversity, meaning that it was a lot of West Indians and there wasn’t really a lot of Somali families. Our house was across the street from the projects, so again you run into that not being part of the community

Tell us about your background.

again, because we were one of the few Somali families in that area. But as time progressed, more Somalis started moving in and I guess that’s when the whole place became more of a community place. Of course, it had a known bad reputation

growing up anyway, because there was a lot of violence and things like that, but we didn’t really associate with that because we were busy going to school.

The name of your show is Integration: Building a New Identity. What does “integration” mean to you?

Integration means basically knowing who you are, as a person and as a culture that you come from, but also realizing that you are Canadian – because we are here now, growing up in this country, and we have children in this country. So basically it’s taking those two identities and making the best of both

worlds. You leave behind whatever you left – the war, the fighting, the corruption in that country – and you come to a country like Canada where you have democracy and freedom to practice your religion, to be who you want to be, to have all these opportunities. Basically, integration is balancing that

new life, where you still keep your culture, but you embrace the new culture that you’re in. And I think a lot of Somalis have struggled with that – they haven’t embraced the culture of the new because they’re afraid if they become too Canadian, they’re going to lose themselves.

What was your inspiration for the show?

What inspired me was what happened with the Mayor (Rob) Ford scandal because I saw that my community didn’t have a voice. There they were, being stigmatized by the media referring to all these young Somalis as “drug

5

to be more proactive for our community and kind of get back to the neighbourhood and say ‘I’m a role model, and I can help these kids realize a better vision for their lives.”

Tell us about the show.

It’s every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. on Citytv and it’s basically a half an hour of inspiring young people, inspiring the community, but also talking about the social challenges that we have because you can’t be all positive and not address the negatives. But we always try to leave with a solution. Basically what we do is share stories. A very powerful one we did is mental health in our community,

6

dealers”, but nobody was questioning why a prominent person like the mayor, who knows better, would be in a neighbourhood doing that...So I think the media was unfair (in its portrayal of young Somalis)... We need

which is a very big topic in Canadian society, period, but it’s actually even worse in a visible minority community like ours, because it’s such a shame...I had one girl on who suffered depression after a car accident with her sister, but her family was telling her ‘there’s nothing wrong with you. You don’t need medicine.’ But she realized if she didn’t get help, she would probably kill herself. So it’s just advocating on

behalf of these people and telling their stories so that people can see themselves in it, and then want to be inspired by those stories. We also find successful people, like a Somali chiropractor who has seven clinics in Toronto, and a young Somali guy who designs apps and has a top-selling kids app right now – things that you would never know about Somali people.

What is your ultimate goal with the show?

I hope to inspire young Somalis to really be active in their communities and to do more, to get involved, to be inspirational for the next generation. I have two chil-

dren; I’m a mom of two young boys. I hope when they grow up and they’re going to university, they can say they have a media that talks to them and there are positive stories

about who they are and what they’re about. I think it’s all about leaving a legacy for our children and giving back to the next generation.

You may know who we are but do you know what we do? For many people, the symbolic red cross is seen in times of international disaster. But the Red Cross is there during other times of crisis as well – situations that happen every day, right here at home. When a house fire leaves a family homeless, when an elderly neighbour needs help to continue living independently, when a child learns to swim or when a by-

stander provides first aid, the Red Cross is there. In Canada, the Red Cross is focused on strengthening communities by keeping people safe and well. Community health programs offered by the Red Cross are an integral part of the overall health care system and can often mean the difference between living at home or living in a long-term care facility. Meals on Wheels, transportation programs and health equipment loans enable many seniors and people with disabilities to live in their own homes with comfort

and dignity. As our population ages and the frequency and severity of natural disasters continues to increase, the need for the Red Cross will continue to grow. Currently volunteers are urgently needed to deliver Meals on Wheels and provide transportation services for seniors and vulnerable people in the community. Get to know your local Red Cross. To volunteer, donate or learn more about the Red Cross in your community, visit www.redcross.ca or call 416-480-2500.

We can’t predict the weather but there are many things to do to prepare your home for it Despite a year of extreme weather, Canadians do not feel any more prepared to deal with its potential impacts, according to the seventh annual RBC Canadian Water Attitudes Study. In fact, only half (52 per cent) feel prepared to cope with the adverse effects of severe thunderstorms. About 38 per cent feel prepared for flooding and a mere 27 per cent feel prepared for hurricanes. “With extreme weather events on the rise, it’s likely that most Canadians will experience moderate to severe weather events in their area sometime this year,” says Paula Bandi, Senior Product Manager, Home, RBC Insurance. “Learning what actions to take can help Canadians protect themselves, their family and their home in the event of an emergency.” RBC Insurance® offers these important tips to help Canadian homeowners prepare for extreme weather events: 1. Inspect the roof annually, checking for missing, curled or damaged shingles. If any, speak with a professional roofing contractor. 2. Maintain eavestroughs and keep them clear of debris. 3. Seal any cracks in foundation walls and floors.

4. Install a back-flow valve or a backup generator for basement sewage drains or sump pumps. 5. Install downspout extensions, rain barrels and splash pads to ensure water is flowing away from your home. 6. Keep outdoor storm sewer grates clear of debris. 7. Keep trees and shrubs trimmed to avoid branches or trees falling onto your home or your neighbour’s home. 8. Have large trees that are growing directly over pipes checked every three years to ensure there are no cracks where roots can enter and grow. 9. Install impact-resistant windows and doors and, at least once a year, check that they’re secure and re-caulk as needed. 10. Put together an emergency kit of first aid items and supplies, and identify the safest area of your home for shelter. For more information, please visit www.rbcinsurance.com/preventiontips.

Police search for driver in hit-and-run Police continue to investigate a hit-and-run incident in Etobicoke Saturday night, in which a man in his 20s suffered non life-threatening injuries. Const. Clint Stibbe of Toronto Police Traffic Services said the vehicle in question was allegedly driving around the Burnhamthorpe Road and The East Mall area shooting fireworks at people at around

10:30 p.m., when the accident occurred. “A pedestrian jumped on the car while it was in motion and was then thrown to the ground,” Stibbe said, noting he wasn’t certain of the individual’s motivation for leaping onto the moving car. The vehicle then fled the scene, but not before a number of witnesses noted both its description

and licence plate number – information Stibbe said police are now using to track down the driver. Toronto EMS, meanwhile, confirmed they transported a male victim in his 20s to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation continues. – Cynthia Reason

>>>from page 1 assaulted the woman before fleeing the residence. The suspect in that case is described as taller than 5’3”, wearing a baseball hat, a bandana covering the lower portion of his face, and possibly a dark long-sleeved jacket or shirt. Police were then called back to the Royal York Road and Evans Avenue area again at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning, when it was reported that a male suspect gained access to the home of a 30-year-old woman via a back door. In that instance, the woman confronted the man inside the home and he fled the scene. He is described as black,

with some facial hair, wearing a long-sleeved black shirt. Investigators now believe the same suspect is responsible for as many as 20 breakand-enters and eight sexual assaults in the same area over the summers of 2012 and 2013 – all of which shared similar modus operandi. In each of those cases, police reported that a man wearing a head covering was entering homes through unlocked doors and windows while residents are asleep, and sexually assaulting women once inside. All of the offences have taken place during summer months – mainly between June and September – and the offender, McIlwain added, appears to target residences

with unlocked doors or windows. “The general M.O. seems to be entry through unlocked doors or windows with screens cut,” he said. “So, certainly we would like to get information out there to residents to lock their doors and windows, and to remove anything from your yard that may assist anyone with gaining access to windows that are a little bit higher up.” Residents are also urged to remain vigilant of any suspicious people in their neighbourhood, and to be mindful of things being moved on their property. If you’ve got tips, call police at 416-808-2222 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS.

winning grant HELPING OTHERS: Sidney Picco, Libby Duke, Taissa Fuke, Kathleen Radecki-Miller and Lauren Stasyna won $5,000 for Street Haven during the Youth & Philanthrophy Initiative (YPI) at Father John Redmond Catholic School. YPI offers grants to charities while helping bring up the next generation of active and informed philanthropists. The program takes place in selected secondary schools across North America and the U.K. Through YPI, charities receive funding from the youth of their community, and students become agents of social change. The team of students visited Street Haven and conducted interviews to get a greater understanding of what the charity does and the challenges they face. They developed a presentation to advocate on behalf of the charity and outline the impact the grant would have on their community. They competed in front of fellow students and a panel of judges, and as the winning team were awarded the grant to present to the charity. Photo/COURTESY

4 Things You Need to Know When Buying a New Roof Shingle manufacturers have application manuals specifying how their products should be installed on your house. Your product warranty is supplied by the manufacturer, and could become void if the proper instructions are not followed when your new roof system and shingles are applied. What you should know about roof surface or roof deck preparation: Your roof deck is the structural surface over which your roofing materials are applied. All roof boards and/or plywood must be fastened securely to the rafters, and damaged or rotten wood must be replaced. Your attic should be inspected before the work starts to uncover potential problems. A bad roof surface allows the nails to push up through the shingles, causing leaks. What you should know about underlayment: A complete underlay system should be applied before your shingles are installed. There are two types of roofing underlay, waterproof and water resistant. Waterproof underlay is needed in areas most vulnerable to leaks, the eaves edge of the roof; in valleys, at dormer sides, around chimneys and around skylights. Water resistant underlay, often called “tar paper”, is needed on the remaining roof area. Water resistant underlay protects the roof surface in a storm situation where a few shingles blow off, but cannot be replaced immediately.

What you should know about ventilation: Improper attic venting can cause your shingles to fail prematurely, and your product warranty requires that your attic have proper ventilation. Venting consists of intake and exhaust. To facilitate proper air flow, your attic needs intake vents located in the overhang and exhaust vents at the roof peak. A balanced venting system is required; otherwise air will be pulled from your house. An inspection of your attic is essential to present appropriate and complete venting solutions. What you should know about shingle quality: You have many shingle options with regard to style, colour, longevity and price. Estimators should include at least three grades of shingles and inform you of the real expected shingle life. In addition to their aesthetic appeal and longer life expectancy, better quality shingles often provide you with the best value when measured on a cost per year basis.

World Cup: catch all the action in Toronto

T

he World Cup begins today in Brazil, and fans across Toronto are preparing to wave their flags as they cheer on their favourite teams. Other than being in Brazil for this year’s world championship of soccer, which runs from June 12 to July 13, Toronto is probably the best place in the world for fans to catch the action. And our newspapers and our special World Cup Toronto website at www. insidetoronto.com/worldcupTO are the best places for coverage on the tournament in our city. Here’s how it works: • Enter www.insidetoronto.com/worldcupto and you will see the flags of all 32 teams taking part. Click on the flag of your favourite country. • Now on your country’s site, you can see stories on the best places in the Greater Toronto Area to catch events linked to the

party, or just like the idea of trying different foods. Other stories will celebrate the many cultures who enjoy the World Cup. • We have a number of bloggers writing about the

teams they are following. The World Cup starts June 12 with a game between host Brazil and Croatia at 4 p.m. (EST) in Sao Paulo. There are 32 teams taking part in this year’s World Cup, broken up into eight groups of four. After playing each other in group play between June 12 and 26, the top two teams in each group will advance to the Round of 16 which begins June 28. Many Toronto neighbourhoods are known as gathering places for fans of certain countries to watch their teams’ games. In Toronto, these areas include Little Italy, Little Portugal, Koreatown, Corso Italia, and Greektown on the Danforth to name a few. See our story on the eight great places to watch a World Cup game in Toronto at bit.ly/1l11bvG The weekend of June 14 and 15 will be a big

one for Toronto fans, with seven games slated over the Saturday and Sunday – many of them featuring teams with large fan bases in the city. Greece will be in action on noon Saturday against Colombia, which should mean thousands of fans along Danforth Avenue between Jones and Chester. Italy also takes on England at 6 p.m. on Saturday, which will mean an exciting night along College Street and St. Clair Avenue West. Other games this Saturday are Uruguay against Costa Rica at 3 p.m.; and Ivory Coast against Japan at 9 p.m. On Sunday, Switzerland takes on Ecuador at noon, France plays Honduras at 3 p.m. and Argentina meets Bosnia-Herzegovina at 6 p.m.

said coach Paul Rebelo. “That’s okay, a silver medal at OFSAA is amazing. Second best in the province. I’m proud of the guys.” And one those mistakes, he said, definitely wasn’t an out at home plate when they were down 2-1.

Etobicoke’s Bishop Allen Academy settled for the silver medal at the provincial high school baseball championships held in Etobicoke on an overcast Wednesday, June 11. After winning its morning semifinal game at Millwood Park 3-1 over Burlington’s No t r e D a m e C S S , t h e Etobicoke school headed over to Connorvale Park where they lost the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association (OFSAA) championship final 4-1 to St. Anne CHS from the Windsor area in the afternoon. “A couple mistakes that we made, that’s what hurt us in the end, and they (St. Anne) didn’t make any mistakes – that’s why we lost,”

‘I sent our runner’ “I sent our runner home to try and tie the game, to make it 2-2 and the shortstop made a good throw, the catcher blocked the plate and he’s out, so it was (still) 2-1. “I was taking a chance but I would take that chance all the time.” It marked only the third loss of the season for Bishop Allen, to go along with 17 wins – with one of its other losses also to St. Anne at an

early season tournament (also by a 4-1 score). The team’s other loss of the season did not happen on the field but over a controversial forfeiture of a game the team was winning over a pitch-count dispute in the OFSAA east regional tournament. Fortunately, for Bishop Allen, however, its 3-1 record in that double-knockout tournament was good enough to advance them on to Wednesday’s final-four. In its own Toronto District College Athletic Association (TDCAA) league, they were 4-0 in the regular season and 3-0 in the playoff roundrobin, including a 5-4 win in the TDCAA championship final over Etobicoke archrival Michael Power/St Joseph Catholic High School. “If you were to tell me in September that our team would win a silver medal at OFSAA I would say you’re crazy. But we did it,” said the coach.

Please be advised that this laser printer is NOT wireless, as previously advertised. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

A familiar name has won Etobicoke’s lone individual gold medal at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) track and field championships held June 5 to 7 in Mississauga. Etobicoke also scored two gold medals in the relays. Obeng Marfo from Father Henry Carr Catholic Secondary School, who was recently profiled in The Guardian upon accepting a scholarship to Penn State, closed out her high school athletic career with a double medal haul: gold in shot put and silver in discus. The provincial shot put title was expected: after all she’s the defending Canadian youth champ and finished 28th at last year’s World Youth Championships in Kiev, Ukraine. While she’s been excelling at shot put since Grade 4, discus is a recent addition. Meanwhile, the relay gold medals were earned by Father Henry Carr in the midget boys’ 4x100m event (Dan Kazumba, Khamal Stewart-Baynes, Neil Francis, Basil Umeh) and by Michael Power/St. Joseph in the ‘open’ men’s 4x400 event (Gerrit Stivenberg, Cameron Nurse, Matthew Viveiros, Nick Pastorious). The 4x400 is ‘open’ to all three age divisions (midget, junior, senior). Also of note is a triple-medalist: Khamal StewartBaynes helped Father Carr to its above-noted midget boys 4x100m title and he also finished second in 200m and third in 100m. Teammate Neil Francis finished second in 400m. As well, two athletes from Michael Power/St. Joseph’s above-noted 4x400m open gold medal winning team also won individual medals, both in the senior men’s division – Cameron Nurse second in 200m and Matthew Viveiros second in 800m. Here’s the list of medal winners from Etobicoke schools. For complete Toronto results, visit our website at www. insidetoronto.com

wellness Feeling hot, hot, hot? Beat the heat with these heat health safety tips

Every year Canadians look forward to warmer weather after a long, cold winter. However, most people don’t consider the potential health risks posed by the heat. Prolonged periods of high heat, which are becoming more common as our climate continues to change, can be particularly dangerous. While everyone can be affected by high heat, some people are especially susceptible to heat illness and heat stroke, such as older adults, infants and young children. As well, many people may not realize that some medications can increase their sensitivity to extreme heat. Illness and death caused by extreme heat is preventable if you plan ahead, take precautions, know your risk factors and play it safe. Some simple steps you can take to lower your risk of heat illnesses: • Drink plenty of cool liquids, especially water, before you feel thirsty. • Avoid sun exposure. Wear loose-fitting, breathable, light-coloured clothing and shade yourself by wearing a wide-brimmed, breathable hat or using an umbrella. • Prepare cold meals without using the oven. • Take cool showers or baths regularly. • Watch for heat alerts and learn more about how quality can impact health by checking

the Air Quality Health Index. • Plan outdoor activities during cooler parts of the day. • Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle or in direct sunlight. • Always try to park your vehicle in the shade. • Block sun by closing awnings, curtains or blinds during the day. • During periods of extreme heat events, visit neighbours, friends and older family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure that they’re cool and hydrated. • Spend a few hours in a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming facility or airconditioned shopping mall, library or community centre. Heat illnesses such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, fainting, swelling of hands and feet, rash and muscle cramps can be serious. If you experience any of these symptoms, immediately move to a cool place and drink water. Heat stroke is a medical emergency. Call 911 or your local emergency number immediately if you are with someone who has a high body temperature and is either unconscious, confused or has stopped sweating.

Beat Lower Back, Disc And Sciatic Pain Now

hankfully, new natural treatment methods help many find the relief they had been searching for. Sciatica is a painful condition that affects the sciatic nerve. The pain usually radiates into one or both buttocks, descends the back of the leg and can sometime be felt in the foot. It is often a severe, knife-like pain, but can also be noticed as numbness or tingling in the leg and foot. It is unpredictable and does not go away even when you change positions or lay down. Sciatica can result from years of poor posture, muscle strain, pregnancy, excess weight, wearing high heels, or sleeping on a very soft mattress. Sciatica is often a symptom of a slipped disc, pinched nerve or arthritis. Although pain pills may temporarily cover up the symptoms, our holistic approach can provide a more effective, long term relief. “Our team members apply their individual skills and knowledge to make an accurate diagnosis and administer the right treatment that will get the best result for each patient.”

Dr. Peter Ng has a special interest in natural pain relief and Chinese medicine.

session craft beer festival

Black Oak Brewing weathered early days of craft breweries Etobicoke-based brewery pouring during Session festival, June 13 and 14 MARK CADIZ etg@insidetoronto.com The thirst for craft beer in Ontario is booming as local breweries continue to rack up national accolades. Award-winning Black Oak Brewing (www.blackoakbeer. com), one of the early craft breweries based in Etobicoke, has been contributing to the rise in beer culture. Black Oak’s head brewer and Bloor West Village resident Jon Hodd has been brewing beer for seven years and has noticed a significant change in beer awareness among consumers. “A large amount of the general public these days know a lot about craft beer and their local breweries,” Hodd said. “They are excepting and loving the new flavours Ontario is producing. People that used to drink classic lagers are now asking their local bars about India

Pale Ales or wheat beers.” Coming from a diverse background Hodd is an educated musician, once a chef turned French cheese maker, is now a brewing master. “I learned a lot from former head brewer Simon DeCosta who has formal training in Scotland,” Hodd said. “When I first started here, I got to brew the beer, filter the beer and bottle the beer.” Hodd said he thinks it is invaluable to be familiar with all the stages of making a good beer, especially since they are pumping out a lot more as the overall demand in craft beer grows. Mid-town resident Ken Woods, owner and president of Black Oak Brewing said sales have dramatically increased since 2011. A sign of happier days perhaps, since things haven’t always been so cheery in the Ontario craft beer industry.

Photo/MARK CADIZ

Black Oak Brewing owner and president Ken Woods has garnered nation-wide attention for his brewery's pale ales and nut brown ales.

“It was a lot harder than I thought,” Woods said. “I thought people would respond better especially based on some successes by other breweries at the time, but to get the traction and start building sales it was

tough.” In 2008, Black Oak Brewing left its Oakville home since 1999 for Etobicoke wanting to be closer to their main customers in Toronto. Call it perfect timing because it was around that

time that local beer culture started its upswing. Long gone are the days of just finding classic mainstream lagers at your local hole-in-the-wall. Hodd said people today are really into what is being produced locally and are not afraid of a new flavour experience. For many years beers from Europe reigned supreme, but local breweries like Black Oak are now stepping up and saying they can make beer that is just as good, if not, even better. Another sign the beer culture is thriving are beer festivals and beer tours that have been popping up around the province. The Session Craft Beer Festival, a staple beer event enters its fourth year bringing together 30 Ontario breweries, including Black Oak, and their supporters. Events like these are not only good for local businesses, but

it contributes to the overall growth of beer culture. And for those aspiring brewers, Hodd said a lot of patience and a good work ethic is required. “There is so much science, engineering and chemistry that goes into beer making I definitely consider myself very young at it,” Hodd said. Beer events give the brewers a chance to experiment, get creative and make new exciting beers – a win-win for beer and their devoted beer enthusiasts who get to sample new beers. Sponsored by Metroland Media, the Session Craft Beer Festival – part of Ontario Craft Beer Week – will take place at Yonge-Dundas Square on June 13 and 14.

that remains of Lambton Mills

T

his tranquil view of Dundas Street ca. 1910 provides a sharp contrast to the Dundas Street we know today. Not a single vehicle disturbs the peace for the lone couple strolling eastbound in the centre of the photo. Lambton Mills was an important early milling community that straddled the Humber River at Dundas Street. In 1807, William Cooper had built a grist mill on the east bank of the river and a village called Cooper’s Mills grew up along Dundas. The first post office in Etobicoke Township was called “Etobicoke”, and it opened west of the river on Dundas Street in 1832, with Truman Wilcox as postmaster. In 1840, William Pearce Howland – a future Father of Confederation – leased Cooper’s Mills and renamed it Lambton Mills after John George Lambton, Earl of Durham. For a long

denise harris history corner time, the name Lambton Mills applied to the village on the east bank of the river only. The village on the west bank was called Milton Mills – the name of William Gamble’s mills at Bloor Street - because Gamble had opened a general store in the village on Dundas Street in 1841. By 1864, Etobicoke Township had several post offices, so the “Etobicoke” post office name was retired and this village’s post office officially became “Lambton Mills”, serving both sides of the river. In this 1910 photo, you can see Dundas Street curving towards the south as it starts its descent to the low level bridge that crossed the Humber River. In 1929, that bridge was replaced by the high level bridge on Dundas that we use today. In 1910, the popula-

tion of Lambton Mills was about 600. It had four churches, four stores, two hotels, two blacksmiths, one carriage factory, two telegraph offices and two express offices. Left to right, the buildings in the photo are: George Chapman’s blacksmith shop; Thomas Coulton’s residence; Charles Ware’s residence; Charles Ware’s general store (this is the general store built by William Gamble in 1841); and Thomas Coulton’s blacksmith shop. All of these buildings are gone except one: Thomas Coulton’s house still stands at 4146 Dundas St. W. and is listed on the City of Toronto’s Inventory of Heritage Properties. Sadly, the stillness we can imagine while looking at this photo has gone forever. Denise Harris is the Heritage Officer of the Etobicoke Historical Society. Her column appears every second Thursday.

Etobicoke student wins national writing contest

Alicia Myc earns top prize in World Literacy Canada’s annual competition JEAN KO DIN jkdin@insidetoronto.com Hollycrest Middle School’s Alicia Myc has been named the winner of World Literacy Canada’s (WLC) 2014 Write for a Better World contest. The 13-year-old’s story, Dreaming, is about a mysterious dream that causes her to switch bodies with a boy that works in a sweatshop in Vietnam.

For her prize, Alicia won the opportunity to have a one-on-one Skype call with this year’s guest judge. Kelley Armstrong, author of the Women of Otherworld book series. “(Armstrong) said that I should keep writing no matter what,” Alicia said. “It has been an amazing experience for me. It helped me learn how to improve my writing and how I can impact people with it.”

Armstrong chose the contest’s theme, Global Citizenship, calling participants to write about what it would be like to take the place of another child from a different part of the world. Over 1,000 entries were received from all across Canada, in both official languages. “We were all a bit surprised,” said Emma Thompson, contest judges and Canadian

programs intern at WLC. “A lot of them wrote about

what they were learning in class. It’s great to see kids throughout Canada that are so engaged.” The contest was open to Canadian students in grades 5 to 8 and encourages students to practice their creative writing skills while learning about being an active global citizen.

CONSUMER FEATURE

Maintaining healthy smiles Maintaining healthy smiles is the number one priority at Dr. OK Dental Center. Conveniently located at 1278 The Queensway in the Dr. OK Medical and Dental Center, Dr. Klipitch and her dental team are dedicated to offering excellent oral hygiene with a full range of general dental services. These include orthodontics, implants, dental surgery, as well as high-tech cosmetic dentistry services and the very latest in dental rejuvenation treatments. The dental team is known for its excellent care of children, adults and seniors, as well as their success in providing early toddler checkups. “It’s important for parents to bring their children to the dentist starting from the age of three. Beginning at a young age will allow the children to gradually get to know their dentist, and feel comfortable in the office,” emphasizes Dr. Klipitch. “Our staff has a lot of fun with the kids, and offers toys after the cleaning. We want to make them feel as comfortable as possible while teaching proper oral health care at home.”

Intra-Oral Image: Step one of implants

It’s not just children who need to learn proper oral care. Dr. Klipitch and her team find that many adults don’t realize the importance of dental screening and oral hygiene. Dental check-ups provide an opportunity for the dentist to explain if any treatment is needed. Dr. Klipitch always discusses all possible treatment options with her patients so that they can make an informative decision and choose the best treatment for them. Each patients treatment plan is carefully planned based on their individual and case specific needs, and when necessary they are referred to other dental specialists. “Each of us should realize that we have two sets of teeth, the first we lose and the last set should be kept healthy for as long as possible. If we lose one to decay, it won’t ever grow back,” says Dr. Klipitch. “An implant can be costly, each tooth is about $4000 to replace.” Patients who do not have insurance often tend to skip dental check ups. This can end up costing the patient more money, since they

Intra-Oral Image: Step two of implants

usually require more extensive treatment. Dr. Klipitch invites these patients to come into the office before their teeth become a problem, to avoid extra costs associated with extensive dental repairs. “If an oral infection goes without treatment, it can negatively impact the immune system. Without fixing the problem your system will continuously work to fight infection and other problems, thereby affecting your overall health,” stresses Dr. Klipitch.“ Some studies show that poor oral health also increases your likelihood of depression.” Headaches, and temporary high blood pressure can be linked to problems with your teeth. Poor oral hygiene can also lead to an unpleasant smile. “A bright, healthy smile is the first thing people see and can drastically improve your self-esteem, says Dr. Klipitch. For this reason, Dr. OK Dental Center offers the newest dental procedures as well as tooth whitening, dental implants and new technologies. A popular technique amongst both teens and adults is Invisalign, which create a straight, beautiful smile with a clear liner, barely noticeable to the naked eye. Making an appointment with Dr. Klipitch is your first step to a perfect smile and healthy teeth. Dr. OK Dental Centre is open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. To make an appointment, please call 416-848-9790. Emergencies are also accepted. For more information about the services offered at Dr. OK Dental Centre, please visit DrOK.ca

TTC to remove streetcar stops The TTC is planning to remove some streetcar stops on various routes starting next year. The TTC said the stops are too closely spaced to allow for efficient service by the newer and substantially larger streetcar vehicles. The new streetcars, which will hold about double the passenger capacity of the existing fleet, will run less frequently on routes.

It’s sponsored by the TTC’s subway advertising partner Pattison Onestop as part of the Art in Transit series. For details about Relationship, visit www. artintransit.ca. World Pride 2014 takes place at various venues from June 20 to 29.

Pride art exhibit shown on TTC screens As Toronto gets ready to host the World Pride festival celebrating lesbian gay bi and transgender (LGBT) communities globally, the subway system will be the scene for an art exhibit depicting the changing relationship of a transgendered couple. Relationship, which will run on all TTC subway screens in 45-second segments during World Pride, depicts a series of photographs taken by Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst as they undergo nonsurgical gender transitions over a five-year time period.

Streetcar concerts part of NXNE Every year, the North by Northeast (NXNE) music festival features offerings by hundreds of bands playing in darkly lit clubs. This year will also feature a series of performances on a redesigned streetcar. Each evening from June 18 to June 20, the “Squirtcar” – named for event sponsor Mio – will feature a host of free offerings for NXNE wristband holders. Attendees will be able to catch the streetcar along Queen Street West at either Dufferin Street or McCaul

Street. Only 100 people will be allowed to board the streetcar per band set, which will take place hourly starting at about 9:30 p.m. For more about the streetcar performances and NXNE, visit www.nxne.com The festival runs June 13 to 22.
