More neighbourhoods in Toronto could be encompassed in the city’s Strong Neighbourhood Strategy if

Toronto council goes along with a staff report that would bring the total number of Priority Neighbourhoods to 31, from the current 22. If council goes along with the plan put forward by staff,

it would mark the first time since 2005 that the city revised its system of setting priority neighbourhoods since 2005, when under Mayor David Miller the city first adopted its Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods

Police are looking to speak with people who were at a Tibetan new year party after a man was stabbed and killed in an altercation. On Tuesday, police released the name of the victim who was trying to break up a fight outside the Tibetan Canadian Cultural Centre in Etobicoke during the celebration. Twenty-two-year-old Tenzin Tseten was at the Titan Road community centre early Sunday, March 9 attending the Tibetan new year’s party, when an altercation broke out in the parking lot at around 3:20 a.m., Det.Sgt.

Etobicoke skier Erin Latimer made a bumpy debut at the Sochi Paralympic Winter Games on Monday, veering off course and failing to finish the first of three events she was slated to compete in this week. The Silverthorn Collegiate grad, 17, ran into trouble on the second half of Sochi’s super-G course at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Centre, where above-zero temperatures and sun-softened snow are said to have led to tough course conditions. “I thought the beginning section went pretty well,” Latimer said in a statement released by the Canadian Paralympic Committee shortly after the women’s super-G standing race. “I came out aggressively, and then coming over the first pitch it came at me a lot differently than I thought from inspection and I took a bad line. I just got so much speed coming over the next pitch that I couldn’t control it.” Latimer went off course

and failed to finish the race, which was ultimately won by Marie Bochet, of France in a time of 1:24.20. Solene Jambaque, also of France, won silver, while Stephanie Jallen, of the United States, claimed the bronze medal. Latimer’s fellow Team Canada skiers in the women’s super-G standing event, Alexandra Starker and Alana Ramsay, both 19 and both hailing from Calgary, finished seventh and tenth out of a field of 15 skiers, respectively. In an interview with The Guardian shortly before

departing to compete in her first Paralympic Games late last month, Latimer said her main goal going into the competition was to gain experience skiing against the world’s very best on such a huge international stage. “I really just want to ski my best. I’m not putting any pressure on myself to get on the podium, I just want to experience it and see how I ski in that kind of environment, because it’s going to be so much different than the regular races I’ve been doing,” said Latimer, who was born with a congenital amputation of her right arm below the elbow. “I just want to ski my best and get to know what to expect for the 2018 Games.” True to her word, Latimer wasn’t letting her disappointing result in her first Paralympic race get her down, calling the experience “a good start” that helped “get my nerves out for my next race.” “Hopefully it will go a lot better,” she said. Latimer will next compete again on Friday, March 14 in the women’s slalom (standing) event, then again on Sunday, March 16 in the women’s giant slalom (standing) event.

Wi-Fi coming soon to halls of Kipling CI

Courtesy photo

Kipling Collegiate Institute students will soon enjoy school-wide Wi-Fi, thanks to the results of a recent participatory budget exercise spearheaded by their local trustee. A proponent of the Participatory Budget Process (PBP), Etobicoke Centre Trustee Chris Glover secured for Kipling CI $5,000 in new equipment funding from the Toronto District School Board – then tasked the student body with deciding on how it would be spent. K i p l i n g C I ’s St u d e n t Advisory Council (SAC) took

the lead in the PBP, inviting their fellow students to submit their ideas on how best their school environment could be improved on a $5,000-budget. Grade 12 student Amina Hamoud, 17, said she and her fellow SAC members went from classroom to classroom late last year collecting ideas, which they ultimately narrowed down to a top three list. “We got it down to three ideas: Wi-Fi through the whole school; new furniture for the library, like sofas and bean bag chairs; or a colour

printer in the library,” she explained. Then the entire student body cast their ballots to decide which project they most wanted to see funded – and school-wide Wi-Fi was the clear winner, followed closely by new library furniture. Luckily for students, the cost to expand Wi-Fi schoolwide is only estimated to eat up about half of their $5,000 budget, Hamoud said, so the remaining funds will likely go towards the purchase of new library furniture. – Cynthia Reason

orontonians hoping to fill their bellies with flavours representative of our diverse city may be disappointed with the city’s long-awaited menu of food truck bylaw amendments. While foodies (and truck owners) waited to see what Toronto’s new ‘food renaissance’ would look like, Monday’s proposal seems to have been served undercooked. The proposal would allow food trucks to sell from all pay-and-display parking spaces on major and minor arterial roads and in parking lots, as long as they are 50 metres or more from a bricks-and-mortar restaurant and 30 metres from school property and no more than two trucks on any given block. This may seem like a victory for food truck movement and our view ourthe taste buds, but is it? The proposal by city bureauLet residents crats appears to give an advantage to restaurateurs. It would decide success also allow councillors and BIAs of food trucks to ask the city to ban the trucks from a particular area. Most cities in North America have a buffer between trucks and restaurants. Setting the buffer at 50 metres seems high, but better than the 100 to 200 metres restaurant groups wanted. Why so many obstacles in a city that prides itself on being multicultural, that prides itself on its burgeoning restaurant scene? Celebrity Chef Anthony Bourdain even paid a visit to our fine city for some gastronomic delights and enjoyed himself. But, while the rest of North America seems to be moving forward on this culinary quest, Toronto sets up more obstacles to success. We raise a cautious hand, as we recall the city’s failed 2010 a la Cart experiment, which saw some vendors lose a lot of money due to the bureaucratic red tape. City hall should not be over-thinking the food truck movement. It should regulate it, hold it to the highest health standards, then let residents decide what they want. The proposal goes to the licensing and standards committee Tuesday and then likely to all of council for a deciding vote on April 1. Although ambitious, the city wants to have trucks operating on the street by May 15. We’ll see what they serve up.

Letting a re-elected Mayor Ford govern is a long shot

I

t was not for nothing that Rob and Doug Ford devoted such a large portion of their second Ford Nation YouTube show to listing an electoral ‘hit list’ of city councillors they’d like to see replaced. If the Fords are serious about governing for another four years, they’ll need allies on council, but more importantly, they’ll need to reduce the ranks of what can only be called enemies. This is a problem for the Fords. Also, it’s a problem for those considering supporting Rob Ford for a second term as mayor. For those, here is a reality check: it might, in real terms, be impossible to re-elect Ford as mayor, even if in this divided field, he manages to pull in more votes than anybody else. Because here is the thing: a city government made up mostly of councillors who were re-elected or elected by voters upset with the way Ford has comported himself, are unlikely to let a re-elected

david nickle the city Ford govern, at least not for very long. Remember, a solid majority of councillors voted to strip Ford of his powers last year after he admitted smoking crack, made lewd comments about his wife and faced details of police surveillance on himself and his alleged drug-dealer friend Sandro Lisi. Since then, council has trundled along reasonably peaceably, under the consensus-based leadership of Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly. More than a few councillors who spoke with me over the past few days – some on, and some off the record – made it clear that in the event the mayor’s re-elected, they’d waste little time in extending Ford’s exile – almost immediately. “It’s true that if the city should choose to return him, you have to ask how can we

take his powers away?” said Don Valley East Councillor Shelley Carroll. “But I’ve got to tell you, we’d be looking to. We’ve all been sitting here from May, and when the first documents came out, wondering exactly how many hours of the day was the mayor hanging out with Sandro Lisi when he should have been doing his job? (His re-election) is a slim possibility, but we would be giving him a rough ride. He already has let the city down, big time.” For Ford to govern, councillors like Carroll will have to go straight up – and others, who are maybe less forthright at the moment, will have to be on the list too. Etobicoke Centre Councillor Gloria Lindsay Luby, no friend of the mayor, wouldn’t engage in speculation, other than to say, “I think he has to demonstrate that he’s changed.” Etobicoke Lakeshore’s Peter Milczyn pointed out that an election – even one that might not see a majority

in charge – should confer the powers of office on the winner. But he admitted that in the case of Ford, the decision of whether to respect that vote entirely would be a tough call. “Certainly the initial reaction would be you win an election, you get to enjoy the power that goes with the office,” he said. “But the question of what else goes on between now and then... If there’s more drugs, or drinking, or whatever it is between now and election day, but he gets elected anyway? That kind of colours any authority he would have.” So there it is: Ford could transform himself between now and Oct. 27. Or council could all face the wrath of Ford Nation – and re-elect Ford along with a council that doesn’t worry about things like drug abuse and truancy. It’s anybody’s guess, which is the harder fight to win.

Fiscal responsibility is why people No need to divide Columnist like Mayor Rob Ford, reader says Toronto anymore gets kudos To editor: Re: ‘What’s the secret to Ford’s steady support?’ The City, Feb. 13. I recently moved to Aurora from Toronto and was intrigued by David Nickle’s column. He suggests retail politics and a community-building message as the key reasons for Ford’s undying support. While they may be a small factor in his success, the key factor in my mind has been his consistent and dogged, financial agenda at city hall, against all odds. His fiscal drive to spend wisely and protect taxpayers’ money has not been seen at city hall for decades, and no recent mayor has had the fortitude to challenge the unions and in indeed, city hall itself. Ford has changed the status quo at city hall for sure, and some left leaners would suggest sadly so. But what his continued

success really speaks to is the growing frustration and annoyance of the general populace for the past crowd at council and their centralist left lean, wreckless spending and disregard for any fiscal responsibility. I voted pro Ford for his agenda, but not his disgraceful personal behavior, which was not apparent to me at the time. But I could vote for him again if I was still there, for agenda reasons if no other candidate picks up the same mantra. Let’s compare voting for him versus voting for former premier Dalton McGuinty. The latter was a smooth, upright family man espousing all the right values, but he ended up being a politician, who never kept campaign promises and wasted about a billion dollars on the gas plant fiasco alone, all to get re-elected. How he has stayed out of jail is beyond me, but Ford

has come close to that predicament for his personal behavior, but not for his fiscal accountability. One is a very smart politician, while the other is not, but one is honest and true to his agenda and other was definitely not. Hopefully, another sensible politician will surface to continue to lead the GTA forward fiscally in a more professional way. But back to the point of the column, the reason for Ford’s continued popularity should be easy to understand if one can remove the biases and prejudices from one’s thinking. Fiscal accountability and responsibility in all aspects, is becoming the agenda of the day as we move forward at any level of government, because the people are fed up with the waste of dollars, want stuff cleaned up and run honestly. Hubert Hicks

To the editor: Re: ‘Toronto still needs politicians to work together,’ Editorial, Feb. 27. The title of your editorial was an accurate reflection of what is desperately needed in Toronto these days. Toronto still needs politicians to work together. We need politicians who have a broad view of the whole City of Toronto, and what we can become in the future. These are the kind of people who I could vote for this year. I am still encountering, unfortunately, politicians

from reader

who attempt to divide the citizens of Toronto into “them” and “us”; downtown versus suburbs, for example. These professional politicians might wake up and recognize that amalgamation happened a long time ago. Their refusal to do so means they are stuck debating issues of the past. The city has moved on. We are one city now. People who propose ideas on working together toward our common future are an inspiration to me. Allan Baker

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

Healing the wounds of childhood sexual abuse at The Gatehouse

Toronto man running ‘double’ Boston marathon to support adult programming TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Jean-Paul Bedard collapsed on the ground about halfway through running the Boston Marathon last year. He was crying. But he wasn’t injured physically. He was bleeding emotionally. Weeks before the race, the Toronto man had opened up to family and friends about the sexual abuse he suffered as a child. Running had helped him battle his drug and alcohol addiction. On that sunny day in Boston, those dark childhood memories once again gripped his mind. The husband and father became overwhelmed by grief. After medical personnel attended to him, Bedard pulled himself together and finished the race. Then, the earth shook. The first of two pressure-cooker bombs exploded, projecting shrapnel into runners and crowds of supporters. Bedard and his wife, Mary-Anne, were fleeing into the subway when the second bomb went off. Bedard felt the trauma of the Boston Marathon bombing acutely. In fact, the horrific incident triggered Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, diagnosed by a doctor. For weeks, the English teacher had trouble focusing. He gathered the strength and courage to call The Gatehouse, an unique Etobicoke-based group support centre for adult survivors of sexual abuse, and a child-friendly location where investigating police officers and child support workers interview children, youth and families during sexual abuse investigations. This year, Bedard is returning to Boston to run a “double-Boston marathon,” an 84.4-kilometre feat undertaken by few. The ultra-marathoner who represented Canada in the 89-kilometre ultra-marathon in South Africa is running a “double-Boston marathon” to raise awareness of childhood sexual abuse and its impacts on survivors, while spreading the message that healing from trauma is possible.

Brad Hutchinson is the new manager of The Gatehouse, in Etobicoke. The Gatehouse is a unique Etobicokebased group support centre for adult survivors of sexual abuse, and a child-friendly location where investigating police officers and child support workers interview children, youth and families during sexual abuse investigations.

The more you talk about it, the less power it has over you. The greatest fear survivors have is all this ugliness coming up. But it’s not true. Once it’s out, it’s light. – Brad Hutchinson

Bedard is directing his pledges to support The Gatehouse programs for survivors of childhood sexual abuse because “they helped me and countless others realize that what happened to us as children does not need to destroy us as adults,” he said on The Gatehouse’s website. To date, he has raised more than $10,000. Bedard’s experience of PostTraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as an adult, triggered by stress or a trauma that unearths the trauma

of childhood sexual abuse, is all too common, Brad Hutchinson, The Gatehouse’s new manager, said in a recent interview. Often, it is an experience of distress as an adult, whether panic attacks or PTSD, that compels adult survivors to find the strength to disclose childhood sexual abuse. For others, it is a well-worn fatigue with living with the trauma’s lingering impacts. Courage is what bring survivors through The Gatehouse’s door. “People get to the point where they’re fed up with their life. ‘I’m done,’ they say,” Hutchinson said. “Some are in Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous in recovery. Some have a food addiction. But they’ve stopped functioning because they haven’t unrooted the core issues. A lot are angry.” Since it opened in 1998, The Gatehouse has helped more than 15,000 child and adult sexual abuse survivors, Hutchinson reported.

Hu t c h i n s o n b e c a m e T h e Gatehouse’s manager in January. He is a published author, Shaolin Kung Fu instructor and ministry-trained restorative justice facilitator who trains educators, police officers and social workers on its principles. Reclaiming and healing that wounded inner child is the work of childhood sexual abuse recovery. The Gatehouse facilitates survivors’ healing through adult group support programs; one for men, another for women. Male and female survivors come together in the program’s second phase. The groups are offered three times a year, at no charge. “It’s not therapy,” Hutchinson explained of The Gatehouse’s support groups. “But there is something really powerful about sitting with a group of men experiencing what you experience. It takes away the isolation. People say, ‘Really? There are people like me?’ Men here understand there are a lot of men out there

like them.” What happens developmentally when a child is sexually abused? A loss of voice, a sense of shame, or both, Hutchinson said. “Two things happen when a child is sexually abused,” Hutchinson explained. “The child loses their voice. Sometimes, the person threatens, ‘I’m going to hurt your mom, dad, brother, sister, you.’ Or, they feel shame. There is a shift from the authentic self of the inner child, what I call the ‘creative energy within you’. The trauma keeps that down and pushes you off your path. “When the voice comes up 15 or 20 years later, it gets you back on your path.” The Gatehouse’s Adult Support groups are 15-week curriculum-based psycho-educational program for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse are led by two facilitators, at least one of whom is a survivor. Facilitators lead discussions to help survivors out of isolation and into inclusion as they heal. Survivors learn tools to develop or enhance positive coping skills and trauma impacts, and discuss issues such as triggers, anger, the inner child, sexuality and resiliency and flashback and grounding techniques. During Phase One, female survivors meet on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m., male survivors meet Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Male and female survivors then meet in a combined group in Phase Two for eight weeks to incorporate yoga, mindfulness-living techniques and tai chi, while discussing belief systems, meditation, moving out of being stuck and transformation. Adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse often fear discussing the abuse will create darkness. Instead, it invites the light, Hutchinson said. “The more you talk about it, the less power it has over you,” he said. “The greatest fear survivors have is all this ugliness coming up. But it’s not true. Once it’s out, it’s light. Participants say: ‘I have a 1,000-pound gorilla off my back.’ This spring, The Gatehouse will begin installation of an expansive healing garden on its property.

a statement. “With funding also going towards energyefficient heating, we can pass these cost-saving measures to our tenants and redirect money to improving building services and common areas.” New furniture could be seen in the buildings’ lobbies.

Funds renovated the buildings’ roofs, boiler rooms, flooring and finishings, kitchens, bathrooms and six elevators, three in each building.

TTC announces subway closures

/MO

100Mbps ADSL2+ & VDSL

The TTC has announced a series of subway closures in March and April for construction related to its ongoing signal upgrade work on the Yonge-University-Spadina (YUS) line, also known as Line 1. Two more closures are planned for the weekend of March 22 to 23 and on April 5 to 6 during which time there will be no subway service between Bloor-Yonge and St. Andrew stations. Frequent closures have been a staple of TTC use over the last couple of years as the transit commission proceeds on a host of badly needed modernization improvements, including Automatic Track Control (ATC). While the work isn’t expected to be completed until 2018, the TTC promises when ATC is online, headways – the distance between trains – will be automatically calculated by computer, which will allow for more efficient service and less overcrowding. The TTC will also post a YouTube video of the ATC work. Visit www.ttc.ca

driving deaths on rise: OPP wDistracted

rahul gupta TO in TRANSIT Exhibit ‘Sketching the Line’ on display wart

An art exhibition featuring sketches of subway commuters from several countries is screening on TTC subway platform video screens until April. Sketching the Line is the latest cultural offering from the Art in Transit series and features 78 renditions of subway riders from Toronto, New York City, Berlin and the United Kingdom. The drawings depict commuters caught in a state of contemplation while they ride the subway in various locales, seemingly unaware they are subjects of interest for the artist in their midst. Sketching the Line runs until April 13 on the Pattison Onestop video screens found in most subway stations. For more information on the project, visit www.artintransit.ca

Distracted driving is now the No. 1 killer when it comes to automobile-related fatalities, says the OPP. With fines for texting or talking on a cellphone while driving set to increase, the provincial police force released statistics last week showing last year there were 78 fatalities caused by distracted driving, compared to 57 for impaired driving and 44 for speeding. As of March 18, fines for distracted driving will increase from $155 to $280. Critics say that’s not enough of a deterrent, since drivers will not lose any demerit points or face having their licences suspended if they’re caught talking or texting behind the wheel. The OPP also kicked off a distracted driving awareness campaign running through the end of this week. For more info, visit www.opp.ca Rahul Gupta is The Guardian’s transit reporter. His column appears Thursdays. Reach him on Twitter: @TOinTRANSIT

Signs that show you’re ready to buy a home If the thought of the reawakening real estate market excites you, you may be ready to buy a home. Aspiring homeowners will need to have a few things locked down before taking the plunge. “Above all else, homeownership needs to make sense financially,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “Market conditions, mortgage rates, investment opportunities – all of these factors are important, but they should not be the only reasons for buying a home.”

According to Dorner, you’ll know you’re ready to buy a home when: • You’re familiar with the market – You’ve discussed options with your Realtor and you’re familiar with home prices in the neighbourhoods you’re considering. • You know how much you can afford – You’ve worked out how much is required for the down payment and closing costs, as well as monthly mortgage payments and other expenses like utilities, insurance, property taxes and maintenance. You have enough left

A glimpse into Etobicoke’s past

Local broker Jim Sturino gives back This year marks the 40th year in real estate for the Sturino family, and the 10th year since Jim Sturino and his brothers elevated the company to become Royal LePage West. Though a well known figure in Etobicoke real estate, behind the scenes, Jim is an active philanthropist giving back to the community by donating his time and money to foundations that are not only dear to his heart, but effect many people in the Etobicoke community. Born, and raised in Etobicoke for most of his life, Sturino played sports in Etobicoke as a young boy and went on to coach his sons’ baseball and hockey teams. It was only fitting when he was asked by former Etobicoke mayor, Doug Holyday, to sit on the board of the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame. As a chairman for 13 years, he helped

bring structure to the organization, secure the Mastercard Centre as the location for their display of inductees, as well as develop scholarship programs for Etobicoke students. Today, The Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame awards scholarships to five students from Humber College, awards $1,000 to two high school students and provides funding for two Special Olympians, every year. Sturino resigned from the board as chair in 2012 to start a new life journey after being diagnosed with colon cancer. He was treated at Mt. Sinai Hospital by Dr. Erin Kennedy and her team, whom he says he owes his life to. Today he is cancer free, and his appreciation is the driving force behind his support of colon cancer research. In 2012 and 2013, he donated $5,000 to the Mt. Sinai’s Zane Co-

Jim Sturino, Royal LePage West

hen Centre for Digestive Diseases, and plans to do the same in 2014, and for many years to come. Sturino is a proud member of the Etobicoke community, and whether it’s finding his neighbour a new family home or supporting local athletes with sporting opportunities or fighting colon cancer, he continues to be an advocate for the community. If you’d like to help support the Zane Cohen Centre, please visit zancohencentre.com. To contact Sturino at Royal LePage West call 416-233-6276 or visit royallepagewest.com

Surrounded by hundred year old trees, on a quiet narrow street, is one of Etobicoke’s oldest real estate treasures. The Berry House, located in the Kingsway, was originally built in 1853 during a time of rapid settlement in the area of the Humber River, formally called the Village of Lambton Mills. The house was originally named The Berry House after John A Berry, Etobicoke Township’s Treasurer, and Collector of Taxes in the early 1900s. He lived in the home with his family for over 20 years and applied the “workfrom-home” concept by conducting municipal duties from inside The Berry House. Over 150 years old, The Berry House continues to maintain its farmhouse charm. Though it’s been updated with minimal modern touches, the house remains much the same— still reflecting the original Classic Revival style of architecture. The home features two storeys, a central hall plan, a peaked gable for which

it’s recognized, and a charming, shaded porch. The Berry Home may no longer be visited by horse and carriage, and the sound of the local saw mills no longer come through the windows, but it will continue to serve as a family home in the Kingsway area. The Berry House is currently for sale. Visit homefinder.ca for more information.

Busy phone lines, lack of accurate information critiques of Hydro’s ice storm response TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com A meeting to hear Etobicoke residents’ feedback on Toronto Hydro’s response to the lateDecember ice storm attracted a mere five people. An independent review panel investigating Toronto Hydro’s response to the ice storm held concurrent town hall meetings March 6 at the Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough civic centres to hear from Toronto residents. Toronto Hydro’s lack of communication of accurate, timely information to residents was a major complaint among the handful of residents who attended the Etobicoke Civic Centre council chambers to address the Toronto Hydro-created independent review panel struck to assess the utility’s response to the devastating ice storm. Catherine Hopewell lived without power for eight days starting on Dec. 22. Hopewell said she called Toronto Hydro repeatedly, but could not get through its jammed emergency phone line. “I have three topics I would like to address: communication, lack of communication, and abdication of responsibility for communication,” Hopewell told panelist Sean Conway, visiting fellow at Ryerson University’s Centre for Urban Ecology, and Miki Deric, managing partner with

A pedestrian manouvers around a fallen limb on Winston Grove after the ice storm that hit Toronto in December. Last week, a town hall meeting was held to gauge residents opinion on Toronto Hydro’s response to the disaster. Five people showed up.

Davies Consultant energy consultants. “Toronto Hydro has a published emergency number that was impossible. You couldn’t get through. Hydro complained they were overwhelmed with phone calls, but also suggested you keep calling. That was kind of a stupid thing to say. You had to keep calling, which multiplied the phone calls.” Hopewell was one of 300,000 Toronto Hydro customers left freezing and without power when the Dec. 21 and 22 extreme winter storm that produced freezing rain, ice pellets and severe wind resulted in widespread power outages and felled trees, which damaged hydro lines. The Etobicoke meeting’s poor turnout perplexed residents in attendance and disappointed city staff, who placed meeting notification ads in newspapers on behalf of the panel. There was a similar low turnout at the

Scarborough meeting. Ja c k i e Brow n , a c i t y communications’ staffer, confirmed the day after, a quarter-page advertisement ran on Thursday, Feb. 27 in The Etobicoke Guardian, North York and Scarborough mirrors, in The Toronto Star, and online ads also published on those publications’ websites. Hopewell criticized the Toronto utility for not having a “triage” function on its emergency phone line, such as press one for a downed wire, two for no power, three for a medical need. “No hydro is unavoidable. It was an ice storm. No communication is inexcusable,” she said. “We owe hydro workers a huge ‘thank you’ for addressing all the holes in the system hydro management should have filled.”

Live a balanced, healthy lifestyle For me, living a healthy lifestyle is about balance and practicing healthy habits in all areas of your life. Small changes can have a big impact in overall body health. Here are five tips for leading a balanced, healthy life: • Reduce your refined sugar intake. Whether it’s in our morning coffee or sandwich bread at lunchtime, sugar is hiding in many of our favorite foods. I always advise people to enjoy the natural sweetness of fruits and cut out as much simple sugar as possible – like in pop. • Do some neurobics. Stimulate your mind and enhance your brain’s performance by changing up your regular routine. Tie your shoes with your eyes closed, take up a new hobby, or hone a new skill. • Visit your doctor once a year (if advised) and your dentist twice a year for routine checkups; regular checkups with your doctor and dentist can help uncover issues earlier when they are easier to treat. • Pay attention to your teeth and gums! Oral health is an important part of your overall health, so it’s important to practice a daily oral care routine which includes flossing, brushing for two full minutes twice a day, and rinsing. Only 44 per cent of Canadian adults claim to follow this oral care routine regularly*, and not surprisingly more than half of Canadians suffer from gingivitis. • Catch some zzz’s. Try to get seven to eight hours of sleep a night. Establish a routine and get in sync with your body’s rhythm.

Dr. Travis Stork

Here’s a good test - if you’re getting up without an alarm in the morning you’re most likely getting enough sleep and have good sleep hygiene. Dr. Travis Stork is a practicing board-certified emergency medicine physician and an Emmynominated national television host.

Beat your allergies, naturally Spring brings different things to all of us. For some it’s a time to finally get back to jogging outside, for others it’s a time to clean the backyard and plant this year’s garden. Whichever way we decide to enjoy the spring weather, we must also be prepared for the arrival of nasty allergies. Nasal congestion, runny noses, sneezing, itchy palates, and red, watery, itchy eyes can become a nightmare for many. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, don’t dread the arrival of spring. Follow these recommendations from the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) to help soothe the symptoms of your allergies and beat the sniffles and sneezes altogether: Vitamin C has been shown to reduce histamine levels. Made by the body, histamines are linked to allergy symptoms. Vitamin C has also been shown to help decrease the sensitivity of our respiratory tract to histamines. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that prevents the release of histamines and other inflammatory chemicals that can cause allergy symptoms. It has been found to be extremely effective at reducing the symptoms of spring allergies. Quercetin can be purchased as a supplement from your natural health food retailer or alternatively cayenne pepper and garlic are also great natural sources. Organic thyme can help to naturally relieve congestion that often occurs during the onset of spring allergies. It also aids in fighting infections caused by phlegm. To experience its benefits, drink a tea made from fresh thyme twice a day

or take a supplement that preserves the natural properties of the herb. Organic Peppermint tea also helps to relieve congestion; this is because the essential oils of peppermint tea are a natural decongestant. By eliminating the mucus and buildup in your respiratory tract, you also eliminate some of the allergens and irritants that may get caught there. Organic chamomile’s anti-inflammatory properties offer great relief to dry, itchy eyes. Place cold, wet organic chamomile tea bags over your eyes for 10 minutes for a lasting soothing effect. Honey’s healing qualities make it a great natural treatment for soothing sore throats caused by allergies. It’s also widely believed that eating honey produced by bees in your region can help relieve allergies. Bees transfer pollen from flower blossoms to honey, so if you eat honey produced in your region, you will gradually become inoculated against the irritating effects of the pollen in your area. Organic Ginger is a natural pain killer and anti-inflammatory. It can also help soothe the irritation of the respiratory tract and is especially powerful when combined with honey. Whatever natural alternatives you decided to try this spring, remember it’s always best to consult your health care practitioner before making any significant changes to your supplement regimen. More information is available at your local natural health retailer.

Secrets revealed to help you…

Beat Lower Back, Disc And Sciatic Pain Now

T

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.

Make care cleaning a family affair Spring is on its way, and it’s one of the best times to spend quality time outside with the family, especially as the days become warm and bright. It is also an opportunity for parents to share some passions with their children – and one particularly fun-filled combination is car care. Many parents feel that showing their kids how to properly clean the car now will set them up to get extra mileage and enjoyment out of their automobiles when they’re old

enough to get behind the wheel. Here are three following three-step process for families who want their cars in tip-top shape for spring roads: Wash: During winter, road salts, mud and grit build up on the paint, dulling the finish. Kids love to get involved in activities that help mom and dad, so young ones can join in on the washing fun. Pre-rinse the car with a hose and then give the kids a sponge – the little ones can begin

washing at sill level and parents can take over the roof area, giving the vehicle a thorough wash. Using a product specifically designed for car washing will help prevent unnecessary damage to your car’s finish. Polish: If you choose to use a hand polish application, apply product directly with a sponge applicator in overlapping circles and finish in straight lines before treating the next section. Pay special attention to faded paint and painted plastic areas

such as doors, mirrors and fenders. Continue until all of the painted surfaces are coated in a thin, even layer. After 10 minutes, when the polish is dry, you can begin to buff with a microfiber cloth. Protect: Use a clean sponge to apply a long lasting, protective wax, working in sections and in a circular motion – only a thin layer is needed. Continue applying to all of the painted surfaces, quickly buff off and you’ll have a protected shine in no time. As the sun begins to shine, take a Saturday afternoon and have a car was with the kids— just in time for a relaxing Sunday drive.

The Mazda3 “Sport,� otherwise known as the hatchback, provides an even more athletic take on this popular compact car. The all-new model is wider and lower, with pronounced wheel arches that give it a firmly planted look.

2014 CIVIC DX

Mazda3 gets win worthy makeover This year’s Canadian Car of the Year announcement was a bit of a surprise. There were two Mazdas in the running – the Mazda6 and Mazda3, along with the 2014 Corvette. The ‘six’ won, and not undeservedly so, but it was the smaller sibling that I believe really knocked it out of the park. Let’s start with the exterior, where Mazda3 is now the third model – after the Mazda6 and CX-5 – to receive the company’s “Kodo� design makeover. The all-new model’s new design language creates an exterior that is now more sleek and curvy, with numerous undulations and reflections that flow over the body surface. The sedan’s overall shape is athletic: long bonnet, compact cabin and short rear deck. Or in the case of the Sport (a.k.a. hatchback), no rear deck. Large wheel openings with flared fenders are pushed to the corners and house either 16- or 18inch wheels, depending on trim. Compared to the one it replaces, the third-generation model is also wider, lower and has a longer wheelbase, with all of the above creating a firmly planted stance that hints at the “zoom-zoom� one still expects from this brand. There’s some additional exterior bling, like available LED running lights and taillights, and signal repeaters in the side mirrors, not to mention standard dual exhausts in the rear. In the Sport, these get chrome finishers and are proudly displayed. The Sedan unfortunately hides them under the rear fascia. The Mazda3 lineup comes in three flavours: base GX, mid-level GS and top-trim GT. The entry GX sedan with six-speed manual starts at $15,995; GS with manual starts at $19,695; and the GT, which comes only with six-speed automatic, is $25,855. All Mazda3 models are now powered by Skyactiv powertrains that benefit from less friction, lighter weight, 4-2-1 exhaust systems, higher compression ratios, and tweaks to the injectors,

pistons and timing, not to mention getting more muscle. GX and GS vehicles are equipped with a 2.0L DOHC four cylinder that produces 155 hp and 150 lb/ft of torque – an increase of 7 hp and 15 lb/ ft over last year’s base engine. The GT gets a bigger boost thanks to Skyactiv. Its 2.5-litre four cylinder now delivers 184 hp and 185 lb/ft – up from 167 and 168. For the budget-minded, the entry Mazda3 provides most of the basics like keyless entry, power windows, tilt/telescopic steering, six-way manual adjust for the driver’s seat, Bluetooth, four-speaker audio with steering wheel controls, and auto-off headlights. There’s even a few extras like the previously mentioned dual exhausts and push-button start. My tester was the better equipped Sport GS, which includes air conditioning, 16-inch alloys, rearview camera, cruise control, upgraded sixspeaker audio system and large touchscreen that looks and functions much like an iPad. And although it was only equipped with the 2.0-litre engine, Mazda’s Skyactiv six-speed manual was a joy to work, with its crisp, precise shifts that could really tap into this thrifty engine’s power band. Step hard on the gas and you’ll be rewarded with brisk acceleration and a nice little rasp from its dual exhausts. Mind you, don’t expect to achieve anywhere near its posted 7.0/4.9 L/100km (city/hwy/manual) fuel economy (6.8/4.9L/100 km for the autobox) if you do this often. Cargo room is abundant, with 527 litres behind the rear seats compared to 350 for the sedan. And the hatchback’s seats fold flat to expand this to 1,334 litres. And although it only managed fourth place in compact car sales, the 2014 Mazda3 is definitely no follower in the highly competitive compact car segment.

Bishop Allen’s girls volleyball team serves up another OFSAA title CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Bishop Allen’s senior girl’s volleyball team proved its 2013 AAAA championship win at last year’s OFSAA tournament was no fluke, by winning a “nail-biter” of a game for the team’s second consecutive provincial championship. After an “unprecedented” undefeated season with a record of 44-0, coach Art Pietras said his team once again advanced handily to the girls’ AAAA volleyball finals at last week’s OFSAA tournament in Barrie, where they squared off against the very talented Glebe Collegiate Institute team from Ottawa. “It was insane. The (Glebe) team is filled with two club teams and they’re very, very good. They had knocked out Mowat (Sir Oliver Mowat CI from Toronto) and Sinclair (Secondary School of Whitby) – both teams we thought we would have difficulty with – so we knew it was going to be a tough final,” said Pietras, who

the final game, but – despite playing well – lost the next two against the tough Glebe team. While they managed

to rally in the fourth set to tie the game up, Pietras said the girls once again found themselves struggling in the

not the oldest of teams and they’re not the tallest, but they just click. The hallmark of their success is their chemistry.” While Pietras said he’s looking forward to next season – especially with four starters slated to return – for now, he’s still riding the high of his team’s OFSAA win last week, “I think our athletic association and our school and the community should be really proud of the girls. Winning OFSAA once is tough. Winning twice in a row is, like, ridiculous,” he said. “The calibre of play was great and...they were very, very strong. For me, they’re the best volleyball team we’ve ever had – even better than last year.” Bishop Allen’ OFSAAwinning volleyball team consists of: Jillian Lesniak, Emily and Hillary Ziraldo, Claudia and Laura Condotta, Sarah Lagler-Clarke, Christina Piccinin, Danielle Fairfield, Sophia Herrera, Katie Zutautas (captain), Tea Maho, and Tamara Chackeris.

fifth and final set. “When we found ourselves down 4-1 in the fifth, I called a time-out. We tried everything we could and this team was blocking us. When we tried to dump it and tip it, they were digging it,” Pietras said of the neck-and-neck game. “I told the girls to try to relax and not try too hard and, sure enough, we came back.” Despite trailing much of the game, Bishop Allen ultimately surged in the end defeat Glebe 15-12 and take home its second OFSAA championship. “These kids had a lot of resolve – they were bound and determined to prove that last year was no fluke, because some of the more heavy-weight schools didn’t compete at OFSAA last year because of the political situation,” Pietras said of his team’s motivation to win, citing the work-to-rule campaign by teachers. “We have a lot of kids who work very, very hard and they were a joy to watch. They’re
