TDSB school trustees vote to save music instructors TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com

Some Etobicoke parents and trustees won the battle. Now, they’re hoping they win the war. Toronto District School Board (TDSB) trustees saved itinerant music instructors but slashed school budgets in a latenight debate last Wednesday of the 2013-14 public school board budget.

$55-MILLION DEFICIT

Facing a $55-million deficit, trustees earlier this year cut teachers and other school staff to save about $27.7 million; on Wednesday they discussed proposals to find the remaining $27.3 million needed to balance the books. Trustees refused to cut the music instructors and hours of music programs, which added $2 million to the savings to be found. Senior school board staff had recommended a proposal to reduce itinerant music instructors instruction time for strings and band by 25 per cent, and steel pan by 20 per cent. That proposal would also have lost 24 >>>PARENTS, page 50

Former Etobicoke Guardian editor remembered for outstanding service in Canadian journalism A former Etobicoke Guardian editor, who went on to become one of the bestknown figures in Canadian journalism, has died. Bryan Cantley died Tuesday in Oakville. He was 66. After working as a reporter and editor in Etobicoke and Thunder Bay, Ont.,

Bryan joined the Canadian Newspaper Association, now known as Newspapers Canada. Until his death he was e x e c u t i v e s e c re t a r y o f the National Newspaper Awards, and until recently, the executive director of the Commonwealth Journalism

Association. His work was recognized earlier this month when he received a Michener-Baxter Special Award for “continued commitment and outstanding service” to Canadian journalism and the newspaper industry. “Bryan worked tirelessly in

Illegal postering cleanup campaign kicks off CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Mayor Rob Ford spent part of his morning Wednesday in north Etobicoke, ripping down fliers and posters from bus shelters as a kick-off to the city’s Clean Toronto Together anti-postering blitz. The campaign will see city enforcement officers work their way across Toronto’s major arterial roads – including Finch and Eglinton avenues, Bloor Street and Lake Shore Boulevard – over the summer, removing illegal posters from hydro poles, bus shelters, utility and newspaper boxes, and issuing fines ranging from $300 to $500 to offenders. “Postering is unsightly and it damages property that all Torontonians own,” said Etobicoke North Councillor Vincent Crisanti, who joined

Ford at Wednesday’s kick off at Kipling Avenue and Finch Avenue West. “It also poses a safety hazard when members of the public can’t see in or out of the bus shelters. That’s why city staff, beginning right here in Ward 1, will work their way across Toronto’s major arterial roads taking down posters and issuing fines.” The city-wide anti-postering campaign is also parteducational, with residents and businesses encouraged to make use of the more than 900 postering structures that have been installed across the city – comprised of both free-standing columns and message boards within transit shelters. Under city’s Poster on Public Property bylaw, any individual or business who is found to have “placed or displayed a poster in a place other than one permitted under the bylaw is guilty of

an offence.” Community posters, however – such as those advertising a community yard sale, lost pet or cultural or religious

event – are exempt from the bylaw and are permitted. North Etobicoke resident Julie McLean-Squires, who was on hand for Wednesday’s

Story of the War of 1812 played out in city parks CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Lakeshore Arts and Sirius Theatrical Company are set to bring the human stories of the War of 1812 to life this summer, through a collaborative theatre project in celebration of the war’s bicentennial. Written by Sirius’ artistic director Heather Dick and based on original source materials, Forgotten Voices: Beyond the Conflict of the War of 1812 is a fictional account that centres on three late Loyalist families in Etobicoke. “We’re really trying to portray what it was like back then, especially looking at the women and children and families left behind and what was it like for the men

on the edge of the battle,” Dick said. “We know about Sir Isaac Brock, we learn about the battles in Grade 7 History, but what was it like for the people? What’s the human story behind it?” Using original source materials ranging from local family histories, letters, diaries and historical records, Dick has weaved a story of “courage, perseverance and sacrifice, revealing the challenges that afflicted the people left behind.” The play’s cast of actors – both professional and community novices – aged 12 to 70+ will bring those Etobicoke stories of “sorrow and joy” to life on a series of outdoor stages at local parks across south Etobicoke from July 4 to 14. Another unique facet

of Forgotten Voices is that it is not just a play about Etobicoke residents, it is a play by Etobicoke residents, Dick added. Last fall, Lakeshore Arts and Sirius hosted a series of free workshops to encourage local residents to participate in all facets of the play – from script writing and development, to acting, period dancing, and set/costume design. “We’ve really tried to bring the whole community together,” she said. “At the writing workshops, I brought various snippets of stories and historical letters and articles in, and people were free to choose one and from that create a scene.” And the outdoor setting of Forgotten Voices’ production, Dick added, will only lend authenticity to those

stories. “Life was outside in 1812 – it wasn’t indoors. So we thought if we do it in outdoor parks, then we have very much a sense of the real setting – what was it like on a farm yard, or the edge of a battlefield. We thought being outside would make it that much more real and alive for our audiences,” she said. “We also wanted it to be a show that was going to be accessible to a wide variety of people, so people can just bring a picnic lunch and a lawn chair and come and watch it. I hope people come out and have a good time and that they learn something new and different about the War of 1812.”

Clean Toronto Together kick off, said she’s very supportive of the idea of an anti-postering blitz. “I’m all for supporting our neighbourhood and cleaning it up,” she said. “(The posters) make it hard to see if you’re waiting for a bus. And besides, they’re an eyesore. They’re ugly. There are bulletin boards that people can put their notices on, and they should be using them. It costs us money to have our city workers come and clean – I see them here cleaning the bus shelters every week. It’s ridiculous.” The mayor agreed: “A cleaner Toronto attracts more visitors and improves the city’s economic prosperity,” he said, noting that, through Clean Toronto Together, the city works with businesses and residents to keep Toronto’s streets clean of garbage, graffiti vandal-

ism and illegal postering. “A cleaner Toronto is good for everyone.” Ford boasted that, earlier this year, a Clean Toronto Together Spring Clean-Up already saw the removal of 3,700 tonnes of litter and debris from arterial roads; 6,500 square metres of graffiti from public property; 7,000 illegal posters from bus shelters, hydro poles and utility boxes; and 205 dead trees from public property, plus the pruning of 1,355 live trees. “Now we need to take it to the next level, folks,” he added. “We need to stop this illegal postering. It’s been an eyesore in our city for years, and we are taking action... Remember, with your help we can make our city a better place to work, play and live. Let’s clean Toronto together and let’s start today.”

his Monday, Canada will celebrate its 146th birthday. In honour of that special day, The Etobicoke Guardian has compiled a list of ways to celebrate the founding of this great nation. The list, which you can find on page 10 is more of a launching pad for community engagement - a way to connect with your neighbours, your immediate community and in some way Torontonians as a whole. It’s a chance to get out and enjoy the city: Perhaps you’re interested in one of the bigger celebrations, such as the Scarborough Canada Day Parade or the events taking place in the Beach. If you’re the kind of person who likes to stay home, why our view not call up a few friends and neighbours and host a barGet out and becue. We have tons of great recipes you can try. enjoy this Neighbourhoods across great country the city from Parkdale to North York, Etobicoke to Scarborough, East York to Bloor West have started community events, street parties and neighbourhood clean-ups and garage sales all in an attempt to bring people together. The same energy that goes into these community-building events can easily be focused on Canada Day. In this issue, we take the idea of celebrating Canadiana with a few things you may have not even considered – although very Canadian: Learn about Canada’s history and the War of 1812 – did you know Canada Day was once called Dominion Day; watch the annual Robbie Soccer Tournament, which happens every Canada Day weekend; enjoy some ribs at any of the three ribfests taking place in the city; say cheers with Canadian drinks while eating Canadian food. Really, what Canada Day is all about is being Canadian and all the great things this country has to offer. People from around the world immigrate here to enjoy a multicultural society focused on equality. So in whatever way you decide to celebrate Canada Day, keep your fellow Canadians in mind and enjoy the nation’s birthday. Happy Canada Day.

Mayor’s bluster costly in talks with province

T

his past Monday might have been a good day for Mayor Rob Ford. At noon, our mayor screwed up his courage, ventured onto the roof of Toronto City Hall, where for the first time he attended a flag raising for Pride Week, and read some kind words about his gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered constituents. It was a mayoral duty he’d shirked until now, and it was a good sign for the city’s leadership. If only he hadn’t just hours later dropped the ball so thoroughly on a more vital mayoral duty: negotiating a crucially important financial deal with the provincial government. These things come up from time to time. The province makes a financial shift that’s not to the city’s advantage on transit or housing or Ontario Works, and city officials sit down with

david nickle the city their provincial counterparts to work out some details in such a way as to balance the books. That didn’t happen this time, when the provincial government set out to realign the city’s finances in such a way as to immediately cost the city $50 million in 2014, and a total of $150 million by 2016. By Monday afternoon, after a meeting with Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa, the mayor had branded the provincial government as a profligate enemy of the city, unmindful of the plight of Toronto’s “most vulnerable,” and worst of all, jealous of Mayor Ford’s fiscal record. “I’m getting punished for running an efficient government,” he wailed. “They found out Mayor Ford can turn the city

around and these people can’t.” Then he threatened to continue with a modest tax increase, a 10 per cent cut to the land transfer tax, and simply cut homeless shelters and other social services, and pin it on the province. Minister Sousa was thus enabled to carry himself with an air of bemused frustration. The city is well run and its books are in order? Splendid. It shouldn’t be necessary to continue to prop up the city’s social housing with provincial funding, then. The city should end up ahead, no longer having to repay an old $200-plus million loan from the province – never mind that the city had been considering it off the books since 2005. And even if it’s not... council need not hold “hostage” its poorest residents. The minister needn’t have said anything; Ford

had tangled himself up well enough on his own. He and his brother have spent the past year boasting about real and imagined savings that they’ve found the taxpayers, while city finance staff continue to find dramatic, sevenfigure surpluses each year. To buttress his re-election bid, the mayor has promised to keep taxes low and take a chunk out of one of the city’s main revenue sources, the land transfer tax. Any Ontario voter casually acquainted with city hall would be forgiven for concluding that the city doesn’t need their tax dollars like it used to. Mayor Ford, with his very partisan bluster, hasn’t done anything to convince otherwise. Indeed, in this matter he’s been Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s best friend.

TV paramedic joins Toronto EMS, carries on family tradition ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

First he played one on TV. Now he’s doing it in real life. Ryan Richardson was one of 40 paramedic graduates who became new employees of Toronto Emergency Medical Services last Thursday. T h e 2 9 - ye a r- o l d h a s appeared as a paramedic on several TV series including Flashpoint, Cracked and Warehouse 13. “I can’t just say I play one on TV,” Richardson said following the graduation ceremony at EMS headquarters. Richardson, who was born in Etobicoke, has wanted to be a paramedic for as long as he could remember. “I had the opportunity to visit stations and sit in ambulances when I was younger, visiting my dad at work, and it always gave me a rush,” he said. “My earliest memories have me looking forward to working as a paramedic, and today I’m able to fulfill that.” Richardson’s dad Bruce has

been a paramedic for 37 years and plans to retire by the end of the year. “Hopefully I get a chance to work with him before he goes,” the new paramedic said about his dad, adding “maybe I can convince him to stick around.” Bruce joined the city’s ambulance service in 1976, the same year CPR was approved for use in the service. “Most people weren’t aware of it. They didn’t know what we were doing. They were afraid.” For the most part back then, said Bruce, ambulance attendants kept patients warm, gave them oxygen and drove fast. “No defibrillators, no monitors, not even blood pressure cuffs or stethoscopes,” he said, noting “these days there are medications, intravenous therapies; it’s more like a mobile hospital.” Bruce said he’s honoured his son has chosen the same career path. “I hope he finds it as rewarding as I have,” he said. “It’s one

of very few professions where you have instant return on your efforts. You find out right away how successful you’ve been, and it’s very satisfying at the end of the day to know that you’ve been able to help

someone.” Also in this graduating class is former trapeze artist Violetta Krantsevich. Born in Minsk, Belarus, Krantsevich immigrated to Canada with her parents at

age 11 in 2001. “I grew up in what I like to call Little Russia: Bathurst and Steeles.” Krantsevich said her parents thought she needed some extracurricular activities so they enrolled her in circus school where she was trained in trapeze and aerial hoop. “I progressed to freelance circus acts for lots of weddings, corporate events. Loved the heights, loved the excitement, loved the nonnine-to-five job.” Now Krantsevich has to give up her love for heights for her passion for paramedicine. But she says there are similarities in the professions. “It’s physical, but it’s exciting, and you never know what’s going to happen one minute to the next.” Krantsevich, who recently moved to the Beach neighbourhood, suggested she may continue to perform trapeze acts as a hobby. “It’s a nice way to de-stress. Flying through the air, nothing is like that.” The 40 paramedic graduates have diverse backgrounds.

They include professional dancer, hydraulics company owner, pet store worker and ski patroller. Toronto EMS Supt. Kim McKinnon said the common denominator is a love of people. City council approved the hiring of 51 paramedics in January. “These 40 were the first group of paramedics to graduate from that group,” McKinnon said. The remainder will graduate from the Toronto EMS fourweek training and orientation program on July 19, bringing the number of paramedics in the city to 901. “That’s very exciting. First increase we’ve had in about 10 years,” McKinnon said. “The increase in our number of calls over the last 10 years has been about 28 per cent.” Toronto EMS receives nearly 800 calls for service daily.

the report. Mayor Rob Ford had signalled his intention to pursue a 10 per cent reduction in the Land Transfer Tax in the spring, when he asked staff to report back on ways to do so. “We’ve committed to a 10 per cent reduction in the land transfer tax and a oneand-three-quarter per cent

property tax increase,” Ford confirmed, even as he said the cuts in housing grants would result in program cuts. In his report, Pennachetti urged caution. He said that the revenue impacts of any cut would depend on how the cut was delivered. But based on 2012 net revenues equalling $344.5 million, a 10 per cent cut would be $34.5 million.

Pennachetti pointed out that the land transfer tax, which is levied from the purchasers of property in the city, has not had the effect of cooling the real estate market that was predicted by real estate industry lobbyists in 2008 when the tax was first levied.

������ ��� ��������� directed to the government’s core supporters, rather than those of the administration. In this case, public housing might be cut rather than road work, policing, or services for seniors. There are very different political considerations at Queen’s Park. Although Toronto is a stronghold for the Liberal minority government, the Liberals need to mollify the two-thirds of their members outside of Toronto, plus satisfy the New Democrats, who hold only five downtown seats out of their 18 members. In short, Toronto is not the centre of the government’s universe. MPPs from outside of Toronto come from areas facing tax increases well in excess of the 1.75 per cent forecasted for Toronto next year by the mayor. No other jurisdiction comes close to receiving annually more than $1.8 billion in operating subsidies, or the hundreds of millions for capital. So there is little sympathy, and even less need, for Queen’s Park to give Toronto that which would

cause unrest among members from outside of the city. Of course it was exceedingly unwise for the city to advertise how much lower taxes are in Toronto at the same time it relies on subsidies from outside of Toronto to keep those low rates. Instead, it would have been far more effective to point out that the current government is not supporting Toronto as it has in the past, particularly when major portfolios such as public housing and transit are chronically underfunded. Both Queen’s Park and Toronto City Hall need one another. Even as city hall relies on provincial funding, it cannot be blind to the political imperatives of the government. On the other side, Queen’s Park needs the city to deliver local services. The reward for effective and efficient service delivery should not be less funding. The good news is that after the puffing and posturing, officials from both sides will go back to working together. David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief.

ou may think you have seen this story before – the one about Queen’s Park not giving enough money to Toronto City Hall. You have. Many times. The recent spat is over provincial funding to compensate Toronto for its relatively high demand for social programs. Three years ago the province let the city believe its annual provincial subsidy would continue until 2018. The fuss is because this tap has been turned off. The province says it pays more than expected in other ways. Not true, says the city. And so the argument goes. More than anything else, the ongoing argument shows how closely the two organizations remain intertwined. In theory, ever since the province gave Toronto the ability to raise a wide range of taxes, Queen’s Park imagined that council would be able to raise its own money. Practically, councillors have great difficulty raising taxes. Given the political, not legal, inability to raise taxes, city hall’s first reaction is to threaten the withdrawal of services, the more painful the better, and to blame Queen’s Park. Notably, city hall’s threats for service withdrawal are

Etobicoke top athletes leave their mark at high school DAVID GROSSMAN active@insidetoronto.com Something doesn’t add up when Obeng Marfo says she doesn’t like attention. Yet, in the same sentence, the 6-foot-2 bundle of talent talks about dreams – as in competing in the shot put and discus for Canada at the Olympics. Maybe it’s just youthful sensitivity at being in the spotlight. For a third consecutive time, the 17-year-old got the nod as the No. 1 choice for female Athlete of the Year at Etobicoke’s Father Henry Carr Secondary. As for the high profile attention, the multi-sport athlete – she also plays basketball and volleyball – just might be a tad fidgety on what lies ahead. “I find (the attention) a bit annoying,” said Marfo, who just might be one of the alltime top female athletes in the four-decade history of Carr. “The attention is not for me and can be distracting. Guess

I’ll just have to learn how to deal with it.” Also a recipient of academic honors, for a third consecutive year, Marfo will return to Carr in the fall for her final year before graduation. It’ll be another year to focus on her primary sport, move the markers ahead and also continue to cause opponents to drool at her success. Steven Adjei-Bediko was picked as the top male athlete at Carr for doing well in football, track and field and soccer. And Marfo is also very well aware that many National Collegiate Athletic Association schools have her name on their list when next year’s annual shop-a-thon for great athletes starts to pick up. In fact, according to Carr’s Peter Miller, one of the top track and field high school coaches in the province, Notre Dame and Wisconsin as well as UCLA and Michigan are among the many that have already expressed interest in Marfo.

Father Henry Carr named Obeng Marfo (track and field, basketball, volleyball) as one of its top athletes.

“Humble, a hard worker, focused and very mature,” was how Miller described Marfo. “She’s well-liked (at Carr). I have never taught or coached a female athlete as good as her. She has the potential to

be a Canadian Olympian.” Marfo, a right-handed thrower, credits Miller for her success, but has a soft spot for her elementary school teacher at St. Andrew Catholic on Kipling. “Miss (Josie) Divona pulled me over in Grade 4,” recalled Marfo. “I’ll never forget it. She thought I had great potential and she, with encouragement from my older brother Asante (soon to be playing football at the University of New Mexico) told me to try the shot (put).” Marfo, whose goal is to be in a Canadian uniform for the 2020 Olympics, also plans to compete at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto. But first, it’s focusing on the National Youth Track and Field final set for Aug. 7 to 23 in Langley, B.C. Top athletes for Etobicoke high schools include: • Archbishop Romero – Brandon Hastings (volleyball, baseball) and Kwnica Pompley soccer, volleyball)

• Bishop Allen – Ross Cameron (volleyball, baseball) and Madeline Maio (swimming, cross country running, soccer) • Et o b i c o k e – Bl a k e Mc L e l l a n d ( vo l l e y b a l l , golf, lacrosse) and Vanessa Pettersson (basketball, soccer) • Etobicoke School of Arts –Nathan McCoy (cross country running, rugby, track and field) and Julia Liu (cross country running, track and field) • Father Henry Carr – Steven Adjei-Bediko (track and field, football, soccer) and Obeng Marfo (track and field, basketball, volleyball) • Father John Redmond – Gabriel Lopez (swimming, volleyball) and Alex Finlayson (ice hockey, volleyball, soccer) • Lakeshore – Tenzing Bara (volleyball, badminton, soccer) and Lisa Huynh (volleyball, badminton) • Martingrove – Emre Serpkenci (volleyball, basketball, soccer) and Jovana Momic (basketball, soccer)

• Michael Power/St. Joseph – Kristopher Kazanowski and Matthew Cvtkovic (tie) and Cheyanne Rogers (sports not provided by school) • North Albion – Saajan Patel (badminton, cricket, track and field, volleyball) and Kavina Shanmugalingam (soccer) • Richview – Marcus Marchese (basketball, ice hockey, soccer, baseball) and Alessia Stefenatti (cross country running, volleyball, track and field) • Silverthorn – Kyle Sternig (volleyball, soccer) and Shannon Cameron (basketball, flag football, ice hockey, soccer) • Thistletown – Fabin Foote (football, track and field baseball) and Vivian Huynh (basketball, volleyball, soccer) • West Humber – Matthew Boutda (volleyball, cross country running, soccer) and Eenya-Gayle Layne (basketball, soccer)

Bolland only player to clinch Stanley Cup in final minute For the second year in a row, Dave Bolland, who was born and raised in Mimico, attending. St. Leo’s Catholic elementary school and then on to Father John Redmond Catholic Secondary School, will be running a summer hockey camp at the MasterCard Centre in south Etobicoke. This year, he might want to add a session on how to score a Stanely Cup winning goal. Many dream of it, and Bolland became one of the very few to do it when he scored the game and Stanley Cup clincher in the last minute of play on Monday, June 24, leading the Chicago Blackhawks to a thrilling 3-2

game-six win over the host Boston Bruins. Bolland’s goal with 59 seconds left completed a remarkable comeback for Chicago who had tied the game up just 17 seconds earlier on a goal by Bryan Bickell. Bolland’s goal was a case of being Johnny-on-the-spot. The puck had hit the post, bouncing lazily back into the crease, behind the Boston goaltender, and Bolland seized the opportunity, quickly whacking it into the gaping net. “I think (my eyes) were huge,” said Bolland in a postgame interview on NHL.com. “They almost popped out of my head.”

It is the only Cup-clinching goal ever scored in the 60th minute. “When don’t you dream about it?” Bolland said. “We all dream about scoring that Stanley Cup winner to hoist the Cup, so check that one off the bucket list.” Plagued by injuries this season which caused him to miss the opening round series, Bolland ended up with six points (three goals, three assists) in 18 games. The former Mimico Mountaineer Jr. B lacrosse player was also an integral part of Chicago’s 2010 Stanley Cup win contributing 16 points (8g, 8a) in 22 games that year.

Indoor champs hope for outdoor success The Royal York U-17 boys soccer team is hoping its now-underway outdoor season will emulate its recently finished indoor season. Despite playing amongst higher-division teams, the team won its playoff championship in early May at BMO Stadium 1-0 over Brampton Blast on a great goal from Trae Williams. The two teams finished one-two during the regular season, Brampton’s lone loss being to Royal York which finished in second place. For the summer campaign, the team has merged with the Weston Wolves. And, playing up in the Central Soccer League, division three, they’re off to a good start with a 2-1 record.

Mimico hosts last regular season game Saturday The Mimico Mountaineers completes the final week of the regular season with three games. With a record of eight wins and nine losses (for 16 points), the team could finish anywhere from fifth to ninth place in its 12-team east division. The top eight teams make the playoffs. The team was set to play last night in Newmarket (7-11 - 14 points), in a game that went beyond our press deadlines. Its last regular season home game is Friday, June 28, 8 p.m. at Mimico Arena against Mississauga (4-13 - 8 points). And its regular season finale is Saturday, June 29, 2 p.m. on the road in Orillia (0-17 - 1 point). Only a complete collapse involving three straight losses to teams lower than them in the standings would see it

shut out of the post season. On the other hand, the team has every reason to finish strongly in order to secure the best possible playoff match-up. The team does have momentum going for it as it saw a four-game winning streak finally come to an end Sunday 11-6 against one of the league’s top teams, Akwesasne (15-3 - 30 points). “It was good for two periods and then we just fell apart in the third period – it was 6-4 going into the third period. But it was our third game in four nights,” said head coach and general manager Sean O’Callaghan. He feels the team may be peaking at the right time. “We played better recently. Earlier in the season we had a lot of our kids still away at school down in the U.S. The early part of the season it wasn’t our full roster.

“But since we’ve had our full roster back we’ve been playing very well. We knocked off Halton (15-2-1 - 31 points) in a game (12-9), we beat Oakville (11-6 - 22 points) in a game (9-8). We went on a four-game winning streak which was ended on Sunday.” As far as his team’s chances, he said: “We do have the offensive talent to be able to play with the big boys, it’s just whether or not our defence and our goaltending will hold up.” Among the Mountaineers illustrious alumni is newly crowned two-time Stanley Cup ring bearer Dave Bolland, a Mimico native. Up to date standings, stats and schedules are all available at www.ontariolacrosse. com (link through Jr. B).

Its vision – to work toward the creation of a seamless network of integrated services for all young children ages 0-6 and their families through its 26 member agencies. Member agencies range from child care centres to community health centres, the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto to City of Toronto agencies, including children’s services, employment and social services, public health and the public library. “Poverty, violence and mental health issues are the three most tenuous areas we deal with in terms of vulnerable children,” Karin Davis, coalition co-ordinator said Tuesday. “All the work we do is in the context of families.

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Ask any one of the teens who make up the South Etobicoke Youth Assembly (better known as SEYA) what ‘community spirit’ means to them and the answer is almost unanimous – it’s all about getting involved in your community. “Community Spirit means coming together and fighting for a cause that impacts everybody; having that common bond between neighbours and understanding your neighbourhood,” said 18-yearold SEYA lead Magie Iyer, a Lakeshore Collegiate Institute (LCI) student who joined SEYA just two years ago after moving to the Etobicoke-Lakeshore area. “It doesn’t even matter how long you’ve been in that community, it’s just those little small bonds between neighbours. It’s part of being a human being – if you want to have a nice society, you have to help create the great community you want to live in. You have to get involved.” Ad d e d Z a k Fa ra h : “Community Spirit is just what we do here,” said the 17-yearold LCI student. “SEYA makes us care. It takes a whole bunch of youth who don’t really know very much about the issues, and when you come to SEYA, we talk about the issues and we do projects and we go to city hall and we’re in board meetings finding out more. You’re just in it, and your enzymes get going about things that really do matter. It’s really, really cool.” FIGHTING SPIRIT It was that brand of fighting spirit that first led to SEYA’s establishment back in 1999, as a response to the lack of recreation spaces and youth programming in the area, said Jasmin Dooh, a health promoter at LAMP Community Health Centre who helps supervise the group. In the 13 years since, she added, SEYA has emerged as a youth-led, youth-run group aged 13 to 21 who work together to make a difference through active participation in the community they call home.

SPOTLIGHT:

Youth empowered Through youth workshops on topics as varied as leadership, skills development, teamwork, goal-setting, antibullying, and healthy living, SEYA’s participants are learning all the skills they’ll need to become the community leaders of tomorrow – and putting those skills into action. “Our kids learn about the importance of community, the importance of belonging, the importance of caring and sharing, about being consid-

erate, about being compassionate, about being a good human being, and about how important it is for all of them to work together at helping each other and helping the community,” Dooh said last week, as the SEYA youth prepared for their annual talent showcase, Ruckus in T.O., where they sing, dance, display their art and perform in a fashion show. “So in the process of their youth development, they are

involved with not only leading activities and special events, they’re really involved in a lot of giving back to the community and that is an important component of their so-called popular education with us. We’re creating individuals, we’re creating humanitarians, we’re creating people who care about each other.” Through SEYA’s unique brand of experiential learning – or learning by leading – participating youth are exposed

to a whole host of volunteer opportunities catered to their strengths, talents and interests. By volunteering for various local organizations and events – from the Lakeshore Santa Claus parade, to the Rotary Youth Impact Awards, to the recent Mompreneur Show and sale, to LAMP’s recent Father’s Day Family Festival, to name just a few – SEYA’s youth are not only going well above and beyond their required 40 hours of community service,

they’re also learning how to be “outgoing and confident leaders,” Dooh said. And when it comes to recurring problems in the Etobicoke Lakeshore area – namely the lack of affordable recreation spaces and youth programming – confident youth leaders like Iyer and Farah are just what the community needs. SEYA’s social justice and advocacy work towards remedying that situation, Iyer said, has seen previously shy members of SEYA such as herself take a stand at some very public forums – including Toronto District School Board budget meetings and deputations at Toronto City Hall. “It’s an issue that’s important to us, because right now, there’s just not enough affordable space for everyone, and everybody needs space,” she said, noting that before SEYA, she couldn’t even imagine speaking in front of such crowds. That social justice and advocacy facet to the work SEYA youth do in the community on a near-daily basis is one of the most important developments in the 13-year history of the group, Dooh noted. By learning about operating budgets and capital budgets, savings and expenditures, her teens are learning how to have an informed voice so that they can speak out on matters that directly affect them. “They’re learning about how to be active and engaged and involved in their community. SEYA is really about community engagement.”

What does Community Spirit mean to you? The Guardian asked SEYA teens, ‘What does Community Spirit mean to you?’ These are some of their answers: ◗ “Community Spirit means being very involved in the community and helping others who need help. SEYA has this saying: ‘help those who are hurting’. And by doing that, you’re not only helping them, you’re helping yourself by becoming a better person.” – Michelle Correa, 17

◗ “Community Spirit means going out and meeting new people and creating new relationships. It’s also about being able to be free and learn new things in your community, and just being multicultural and not having stereotypes against others.” – Shantaya James, 18

◗ “Coming to SEYA and understanding all those issues that we all have in common, really does add to our understanding of community spirit. It’s important that you feel like you’re a citizen in your own city and you feel like you’re part of it.” – Zak Farah, 17

◗ “Community Spirit is showing your support for the community by doing volunteer work to express your pride in the community.” – Pema Rabgha, 17

business THE KINGSWAY BIA

Together we raised

$225,000

Thank you to everyone for making this tremendous effort possible. Over 700 guests from Canada’s top financial, legal and accounting firms joined physicians, nurses and staff from St. Joseph’s Health Centre at the Liberty Grand on Thursday, June 20, for the third annual Summer Solstice White Party. Donned in their summer whites, guests enjoyed an evening of music and cocktails in support of the St. Joseph’s Health Centre’s Just for Kids Clinic, helping to raise more than $225,000 for the hospital-based clinic’s expansion.

About the Just for Kids Clinic Summer Solstice donor support and proceeds will help expand the beloved children's walk-in clinic so that the paediatrics team can care for more than 17,000 kids each year in a space that is truly special for children. Gary Selke, President and CEO, Front Street Capital, has a special connection with the Just for Kids Clinic. Dr. Dilip Mehta and the staff saved his daughter’s life on Christmas Day, 1993. Twenty years later, Gary continues to show his support Gary Selke and Dr. Dilip Mehta as a member of the St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation Board of Directors, and he is also matching all individual donations to the Just for Kids Clinic, up to $250,000. For more information on how to get involved, visit foundation.stjoe.on.ca.

>>>from page 19 Many sit at the table strictly to collaborate. “The coalition is beneficial for its amazing sharing of resources and information about the sector, information about community needs, trends. Members identify gaps in services, sometimes in a formal meeting, sometimes through just phone calls to one another. “Then we develop programs and services to fill those gaps. Groups will partner on different projects that would otherwise not be offered.” Toddler Steps for Healthy Living was borne of that kind of collaborative effort. The three-year project is delivered to families across Etobicoke at various agencies on a traveling basis, with the program tweaked for each community’s needs. Affordable child care is an ever-present issue for vulnerable families, as is the need for parent-relief programs, where a parent can leave a child for a few hours to get

Our service providers connect with families, who may come in to an Early Years Centre, for example.

They connect them with other community services. – Karin Davis, coalition co-ordinator

speech and language challenges or behavioral issues. They connect them with other community services.” The coalition’s model includes the use of three teams: program planning; capacity building and professional development and evaluation, made up of coalition members. Efforts are made to continuously include and engage new partners in the coalition’s work. Coalition members meet five to six times per year. It organizes a breakfast

twice annually for member agencies’ executive directors to share feedback, issues, challenges and trends. The coalition’s focus remains building the capacity of member agency service providers to address the needs of vulnerable families and their young children 20 years later through collaboration, resource sharing, professional development and collective planning. Davis said she remains struck by the passion of coalition and agency staff two years after she took the job. “They’re amazingly passionate about children and their families. They’ll do anything they can to provide for them to make their lives better. It’s quite motivating,” she said. “The sustainability of the coalition is also amazing. It shows how hard the coalition has worked to remain relevant and to move with the times to stay connected and to continue to make a difference.”

Bernard Trottier - MP, Etobicoke Lakeshore

Ted Opitz - MP, Etobicoke Centre

I am honoured to represent the people of Etobicoke—Lakeshore in Canada’s Parliament. Our community is a blend of people with roots from around the world, with a diverse economy based on small business, manufacturing, arts, film and television, financial services and everything in between. Toronto continues to be a magnet for investment and people, which puts strain on our infrastructure. That’s why I’m pleased to partner with other levels of government to ensure we have what we need to help us live, work and play in our city. In the last seven years the federal government has invested over $4.5 billion in GTA infrastructure, including the Spadina Subway extension, GO Transit improvements and Union Station revitalization. Closer to home, we were delighted to open the second phase of the Mimico Waterfront park. My staff and I are here to help you with access to federal government services such as immigration, seniors’ and veterans’ benefits. I encourage you to provide me with your views and ideas on how we can work together for a better community and country. Please sign up to receive my e-newsletter at www.BernardTrottierMP.ca. I look forward to hearing from you.

Etobicoke’s history sustained thanks to committed residents LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com Were it not for the Etobicoke Historical Society (EHS), the historic Montgomery’s Inn at the corner of Islington and Dundas West streets, would have likely been demolished. Formed in May of 1958 in response to concern for the rapidly changing character of what was then the Township of Etobicoke, EHS members voiced concern for the preservation of the inn at its Nov. 17, 1960 meeting. A proposal was made to move Montgomery’s Inn to Pioneer Village, a move that was vehemently opposed for fear Etobicoke’s history would disappear forever. “In September 1962, without the support of (city) council, the society worked with the landowner and developers to

SPOTLIGHT:

Preserving history take title to the inn, two-thirds of the Dundas Street frontage and assumed a mortgage of $40,000,” president James Ganeau told The Guardian. “Five of the society’s original members actually used their own personal assets to guarantee the loan, a testament to their passion for preserving Etobicoke’s heritage.” SAVING MONTGOMERY’S INN By June of 1965, EHS could take credit for convincing city council to take over the inn and accepted an offer, which covered accumulated taxes, bank interest and outstanding principal. When the EHS board moved

to refurnish the inn, restored by the borough as a replica of Thomas Montgomery’s Inn of the 1830s, the society contributed several items that are currently in use at the inn. EHS also donated more than $6,000 to pay for the current dining room furnishings. “This was the beginning of a long relationship between EHS and the Montgomery’s Inn and the launch of our mandate to protect and preserve Etobicoke’s heritage,” said Ganeau. Evolving significantly over the years, EHS has grown from its original focus of preserving Montgomery’s Inn to becoming an advocate for heritage preservation, communication and education in Etobicoke. “We have a large archive of items, documents, images and related artifacts of historical significance to Etobicoke,”

We have a large archive of items, documents, images and related artifacts of historical significance to Etobicoke. – James Ganeau, EHS president

said Ganeau. “The society has acquired and preserved these rare artifacts over the years as part of our permanent collection.” EHS receives a number of requests regarding Etobicoke’s history from residents, historians and researchers on a monthly basis. Its chief historian, a volunteer and board member, relies on the society’s archives and perma-

nent collection to respond to the inquiries. “We also publish one of the oldest historical newsletters in Canada, ‘The Aldernews,’ which outlines upcoming meetings and covers many different historical topics, published seven times each year,” said Ganeau. MEMBERSHIP SUPPORT EHS relies on its membership to support its outreach, preservation and education efforts throughout the year. Preservation projects include the installation of heritage plaques at various sites of historical significance in Etobicoke; lobbying and participating in preservation designation debates and initiatives and engaging support from the community on heritage issues.

“In addition to our preservation outreach, the society has started a major transformation initiative designed to ensure that the society remains sustainable and relevant to the future needs of Etobicoke residents. Having joined the board as president in January of this year, I brought with me a goal of modernizing the society to make it appealing to a new generation of residents passionate about Etobicoke’s rich history.” This year, EHS launched a fan page on Facebook an official Twitter account (@ EtobHistory) as new mediums for sharing important news and information on the society and Etobicoke history.

Dufferin Street named Ontario’s worst road: CAA RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com Once again Dufferin Street has been named the worst road in Ontario. For the second straight year, the pot-hole strewn street topped the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) annual Worst Roads survey. The CAA made the announcement June 18 at the intersection of Dufferin Street and Finch Avenue in North York. Dufferin beat out Burlington Street East in Hamilton for the dubious honour, the CAA said. In all, four Toronto streets made the 2013’s top 10 list including Finch Avenue West (third), Bayview Avenue (fifth) and Lawrence Avenue East (sixth). More than 10,000 respondents took part in the online poll, said South Central Ontario CAA spokesperson Faye Lyons. “Voters have spoken loud and clear,” said Lyons at the press conference. “Over 90 per cent of the comments CAA received were concerns about potholes and poor infrastructure. Their concerns reflect the fact that municipal infrastructure is in decay.”

Help cats finds a home at Feline Fiesta Bring home a new cat or two during the City of Toronto’s Feline Fiesta until July 4. The city celebrates Adopta-Shelter-Cat Month by hosting a Feline Fiesta adoption blitz where residents can go home with a kitten or cat for $25 (plus HST and a licence if applicable) from one of the city’s four animal shelters. Cats breed in every season, but most typically in late

winter or early spring. By this time each year, the city’s animal shelters are brimming with kittens. Several strategies are being used to stop the cycle of cat overpopulation, including promoting the adoption of cats from shelters. When people adopt a kitten or cat from Toronto Animal Services, they receive a pet that is microchipped, vaccinated and spayed/neutered

so it cannot reproduce. If you wish to adopt a kitten or cat, visit a Toronto Animal Services shelter in your neighbourhood. More information is available at www.toronto.ca/animal_services/pet_adoption.htm To read more about one organization’s fight to stop cat overpopulation in Toronto, visit Alley Cat Ally blog at www. insidetoronto.com/blogs/74674

Faye Lyons, government relations, CAA South Central Ontario, launches the 10th annual Worst Roads campaign in front of Queen's Park last month.

Lyons estimated it would cost around $2 billion a year for repairs to all the streets on the list. She said the money for the work should come not from cash-strapped municipalities but from a share of provincial gas tax revenues collected on every litre of gas or diesel purchased. Nearly 90,000 vehicles

travel through Dufferin and Finch according to the City of Toronto’s transportation services department, which ranked the intersection the ninth most congested in Toronto for a recent traffic study.

This aerial view of Ontario Place includes the parking lot that is being proposed as part of a new park and waterfront trail by the Ontario government.

Park, waterfront trail proposal for Ontario Place ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com A parking lot will be transformed into a new public park and waterfront trail, Tourism Minister Michael Chan announced yesterday morning. On the edge of the waterfront at Ontario Place,

Chan said the government is moving forward with the revitalization of the 155-acre waterfront park. Ontario Place is owned by the province and governed by a board of directors. It opened in 1971 and was shut down in February 2012, with the exception of the marina, The Molson

Canadian Amphitheatre and Echo Beach, Atlantis Pavilion and the parking lots. Now one of those parking lots, known as the administrative parking lot, located along the southeast side of Ontario Place will become a new urban waterfront park and a trail allowing access to the public to the water’s

edge. “It will span the size of about four BMO Fields and will connect the existing waterfront trail,” Chan said. The park will be 7.5 acres of green space and will provide some of the most breathtaking views this city has to offer, Chan said. “(It will be) an opportunity

to enjoy a premier piece of the waterfront, which has previously gone under-utilized,” Chan said. Since 1990 there has been much discussion about the future of the grounds.

At the time John Tory called it a new public backyard for all Ontarians. “Of those 18 recommendations one resounding vision became very, very clear – the desire of the people of Ontario to have open, free access to the waterfront,” Chan said. Chan wouldn’t discuss the cost because it is a bidding process and he didn’t want to disrupt that process by revealing the budget set for the project. He encouraged the public to share their ideas on how they envision the new park.

AUTOCATCH.COM IS THE BEST PLACE TO FIND YOUR NEXT VEHICLE. FIND THE CAR FAST.

Prep your car for safe summer travel Summer getaways are common indulgence in Canada and for the more than four-in-five of us who own, lease or finance a vehicle, exploring the great white north often begins with the push of a pedal. Whether your plans include crosscountry road trips or a weekend exodus to the cottage, here are a few tips to keep your vehicle looking and running its best on the open road: • Keep it Clean: Starting a road trip with a clean car is a must, but be eco-responsible. Always look for

products that are designed to be tough on grease, bugs, mud and carbon deposits, while still being safe for the environment. • Check Your Wheels: Make sure tires are road-trip ready. For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types. Check the pressure of the tires before you take off by consulting the owner’s manual or on the side of the tire. Properly inflated tires improve grip on the road and save money at the pump.

• Top up Fluids: No one wants to be stuck on the side of the highway. Having proper levels of windshield washer fluid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake fluid can make or break a road trip. Check the owner’s manual for the recommended fluid levels. Remember overfilling your fluids can do just as much damage as not filling up enough. • Get Rid of the Salt: As the temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full-season

of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a car’s body. Keep your car looking and running its best by getting a professional rust protection at least once a year. • Take it to an Expert: Stay safe and avoid unforeseen expenses by following your car’s recommended maintenance schedule. Before you head out on the road, see a professional to give you the green light for long-distance travel.

Nissan recognized as a top Global Green Brand for 2013 Nissan has been named one of the world’s greenest brands for 2013 in Interbrand’s third annual Best Global Green Brands report. Noted for its leadership in zero emissions mobility with the Nissan LEAF 100 per cent electric vehicle, Nissan was ranked fifth place overall out of 50 brands that were selected. Nissan moved up 16 po-

sitions from its 2012 showing and was named the “top riser� in this year’s report, which was recently this week by the leading brand consultant. The Interbrand green brand report ranks brands based on a company’s environmental practices and customers’ perceptions. Cited in this year’s report was the

Nissan LEAF 100 per cent electric vehicle’s positive effect on perceptions of the brand, and an array of eco-friendly actions such as plans to cut vehicle weight by 15 per cent starting in 2017, and Nissan’s collaboration with Daimler and Ford for the development of fuelcell cars to be launched by 2017. – Metroland Media Group

The Nissan LEAF is 100 per cent electric and requires no gas and no tailpipe.

First look at 2014 Honda Hybrid The first official photos of the Canadian version of the all-new 2014 Accord Hybrid set to hit dealerships nationwide this October are now available on Hondanews.ca. The Accord Hybrid features the same sophisticated styling found on the Accord Sedan, plus upscale detailing with unique hybrid badging and blue-accented grille and light lenses, LED lighting, a unique wheel design and a decklid spoiler. The Accord Hybrid joins an award-winning family, including the Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe. The 2014 Accord Hybrid will use Honda’s new two-motor hybrid powertrain along with two-motor Sport Hybrid Intelligent Multi Mode Drive powertrain. This will enable the Accord Hybrid to move through three different driving

modes, EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive to optimize efficiency and fuel economy. In ‘EV Drive’, the Accord Hybrid uses the lithium-ion battery to run in electric-only mode at lower speeds and in medium to high speed cruising, “Engine Drive� sends the engine power directly to the front wheels. In “Hybrid Drive’ the powerful 124-kilowatt (kW) electric motor and the all-new 2.0-litre DOHC i-VTEC Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine blend together for powerful acceleration while allowing for efficient driving in stop and go traffic situations. The Accord Hybrid is anticipated to deliver fuel economy1 of 4.0/4.2/4.1 (City/Hwy/Combined) L/100Km.

Ford test high-tech early warning break light Ford has participated in a special test of a high-tech early warning “brake light� that can warn drivers following behind even if they are around a bend or behind other traffic. The technology is one of 20 potential future systems Ford tested as part of Safe Intelligent Mobility – Testfield Germany (sim), a four-year joint industry research project. In emergency braking situations, the experimental “Electronic Brake Light� transmits a wireless signal to illuminate a dashboard light in cars following behind. The study found the technology could enable drivers to brake earlier and potentially mitigate or avoid a collision.

The sim field tests involved 500 test drivers in 120 vehicles – including 20 Ford S-MAX models. Testers logged more than 41,000 hours and almost a million miles on public roads and an enclosed test track in Germany. Ford used specially-equipped Ford S-MAX models to help test the potential of car-to-car and car-toinfrastructure communication; also testing Obstacle Warning system, which alerts to the presence, position and type of potentially hazardous objects in the road, and Traffic Sign Assistant, that keeps in contact with traffic management centres for up-to-date information.

Plastic bag ban issue dead in Toronto DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Plastic bags are off the table at Toronto City Hall. That was the word from the city’s public works and infrastructure committee last Wednesday, as it briefly considered a report on strategies to reduce the amount of plastic shopping bags in the city’s solid waste system. The report stemmed from last year’s long and at times all-over-the-map debate at council over what to do about the five cent mandatory bag fee introduced toward the end of the administration of former mayor David Miller. Mayor Rob Ford had brought the matter forward to eliminate the fee, but council in a surprise move voted to ban plastic bags altogether. By the end of the year, council had reversed that decision. But last week, Ford took

no chances and made the unusual move of attending the committee meeting himself to cast a vote on the matter. As it happened, he needn’t have. Committee Chair Denzil Minnan-Wong’s motion, to simply receive the report for information passed easily. “The item was received, that means the issue is dead,” Minnan-Wong said. ‘status quo prevails’ “The status quo prevails. We’ve had this debate over and over again. I think from the very beginning it was a manufactured issue. The public didn’t really want to have this debate about banning bags and it just went out of control. At that meeting where it did go out of control, where we were going to go to court and get our heads handed to us, we were taught a powerful lesson that we can’t go off

and make policy wherever we want without consulting and going through the proper process.” Following the meeting, Ford spoke to the press. “Today I cast my vote as mayor to make sure we put the final nail in the coffin of this plastic bag fee once and for all,” Ford said. “Folks, we have to remember these bags are 100 per cent recyclable and reusable.” Opponents of the mayor wanted to keep a bit more life in the question of diverting plastic bags. The report from city staff indicated that diversion of plastic from the waste stream improved during the implementation of the mandatory fee, by 53 per cent. A n d So l i d Wa s t e Management commissioned an Ipsos Reid public opinion survey which found 72 per cent of residents changed their behaviour as a result of the fee, using reusable bags,

and 59 per cent reduced their bags more as a result of the fee. About half were in favour of maintaining the status quo for bags. Don Valley East Councillor Shelley Carroll said there wasn’t any will to go back to the fee as it stood, or a ban — but it made sense to discuss the question of plastic bags in the context of a larger waste diversion plan. “No councillor wants to go back to the bag fee — they don’t want a fee that doesn’t end up in the city’s coffers, but they want to do the right thing,” she said. “ The mayor came to vote because he thought he had some kind of fight. Councillor Minnan-Wong tried to put on a superhero cape, the mayor put on a superhero cape, but it was to fight a villain that wasn’t there.”

United Way-funded agencies will receive two per cent boost ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

Two hundred agencies across Toronto will receive a two per cent boost in funding from the United Way this year, the charity announced. The money comes from last year’s United Way Toronto campaign, which raised $116 million. “That enables us to maintain the support that we have always given to our agencies as well as provide them with this one time incremental two per cent,” United Way Toronto President and CEO Susan McIsaac said at a press conference to announce the funding hike on June 21. “I’m excited we’ve completed another good year. We had strong financial results.” The 200 agencies will

receive a total of $77 million. The remainder of the money raised in last year’s campaign was designated to specific charities by donors and also went toward operating costs. “I’m really grateful to Torontonians for all of their support,” McIsaac said. McIsaac said United Way Toronto will focus on four priorities over the next five years: youth employment, providing services in the city’s 13 priority neighbourhoods, building a strong stable community sector and “identifying emerging trends and issues and creating a response to that so that as issues arise we have the capacity to respond to them.”
