Chris Stockwell top choice to fill Ward 3 seat Former MPP and speaker of the legislature wins support of Ford brothers on all three ballots CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

Staff photo/MARY GAUDET

Mayor Rob Ford, left, and city councillors listen to candidate Agnes Potts during the day-long special meeting of Etobicoke York Community Council that recommended Chris Stockwell as the preferred candidate to fill the vacant Ward 3 seat on Toronto Council. The former Etobicoke Centre Conservative MPP was selected from more than 40 people arguing they were the best candidate for the job. City council must approve the nomination before Stockwell can be sworn in.

here saying ‘if you want to put somebody in who can hit the ground running, who has an understanding of how politics works, I’m available.’” Stockwell ultimately won EYCC’s endorsement on the third ballot with the votes of Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, Etobicoke North Councillor Doug Ford, and those of councillors Vincent Crisanti (Etobicoke North), Giorgio Mammoliti (York West), Peter Milczyn (Etobicoke-Lakeshore), and Cesar Palacio (Davenport).

comment

West-end councillors have voted former Etobicoke Centre MPP and city councillor Chris Stockwell as their preferred candidate to fill the Ward 3 Toronto City Council seat left vacant by Doug Holyday. The former Ontario cabinet minister won the recommendation of Etobicoke York Community Council (EYCC) members in three ballots during a special meeting Tuesday, beating out a field of 42 other candidates (two others withdrew their candidacy either before or during the meeting). While Stockwell said he’s been out of public life for a decade, he missed political life and thought the yearlong commitment remaining on this municipal term would provide the “perfect opportunity” for his re-entry in to the public domain. “You’ve got to find somebody who can hit the ground running; somebody who knows the issues and somebody who knows the community. Quite frankly, I’m not sure I could have found a better place to represent,” he told councillors during his allotted five-minute pitch Tuesday, noting he has no intention of running for the Ward 3 seat during the upcoming municipal election in 2014. “MPP Holyday and I share a very similar political voice...So when he said he was going to run, I thought this would be a good reason to come back. “Let me be clear, I talked to nobody; I lobbied nobody; I consulted nobody; I’ve asked for nobody’s support. I’ve simply come

Holyday are, I’m not going to say identical, but he has been in the community a long time and understands the needs of Etobicoke Centre and he has a lot of experience as a councillor and at Queen’s Park as a speaker and a minister with many portfolios,” Ford said. “We need that experience and that’s why I voted for him.” City hall lobbyist Nunziata, meanwhile, said following the vote that he wasn’t “terribly disappointed” by the result, but that he’ll now have to consider whether or not he’ll leave his name in the running. “I think the mayor and the mayor’s brother swayed the votes,” he said. “At the end of the day, they decided to go for someone who would be a Ford proxy rather than an independent thinker at city hall and someone who would not vote based on political affiliation.” The final decision as to who will fill the Ward 3 seat left vacant by Holyday will be made on Thursday, Oct. 10 by Toronto City Council, where, once again, all candidates in the running will be given the chance to address councillors for five minutes each. Mayor Ford said his hope is that the larger council will respect the recommendation of EYCC councillors and appoint Stockwell. “(Council) should do what we say,” Ford said. “And a couple of them... have said they’re not going to overrule us, so I’m going to take them on their word on that...and hopefully they’ll support our decision here.”

“They should continue along the lines of Ford, and be honest. Tax dollars should be spent on more important things than residential roads. Like programs that support the health system and mental health.” Yvette LeSage

“They should support the transit system. There should be a bus on Renforth Drive – so many schools are here it would be full.”

“They should push more for subway transit. I hope they keep fixing up the roads around here the way they’ve been doing.”

“I’d like them to think of long-term support for transit. They keep spending a lot of money changing plans and waffling about.”

Smoking rules need to be enforceable, measurable

P

rudent health measure or nanny state legislation? When Toronto council meets next month, it is scheduled to consider implementing tough new measures on outdoor smoking in the city. These are recommendations proposed by the city’s board of health in an attempt to curb exposure to secondhand smoke. Of the series of recommendations the board made this week, one of them includes asking council to make it illegal to smoke within nine metres of the entrance to all public buildings in the city. The board of health’s recommendation that sports fields and “specific park amenities” go smoke-free as well needs parks and environment committee approval on Oct. 23 before it can go to council. Other health board recommendations, including the banning of smoking on restaurant patios, would require a change to provincial legislation and can’t be imposed by the city. While the board endorsed the our view recommendations, Mayor Rob Ford has called the plan “nanny Smoking ban state” legislation. When it comes to new legislais for greater tion of any sort, we ask: Is the legislation practical? And is it for good the greater good? On the first question, when it comes to banning smoking within nine metres of a public building, we do question the practicality of enforcing such a law and would like to see specific details of how the city plans to deal with that. On the second question, it’s hard to argue that it isn’t for the greater good. In a report to the board of health last September titled ‘The Burden of Illness from Tobacco in Toronto’, Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown noted tobacco use and second-hand smoke remain the leading causes of preventable death in Canada. In Toronto, adult smoking rates have “seen a slowed decline since 2001,” the report said, suggesting expanded tobacco control is needed to further reduce the risks posed from second-hand smoke. The proposals announced this week stem from McKeown’s report. What council must do is ensure the new measures are enforceable and measurable. “The history of trying to reduce the harm caused by smoking in Toronto is one of incremental measures,” McKeown said this week, acknowledging a total ban on smoking is “not a practical objective in the short term.” It’s Toronto council’s job to ensure this next step in the interest of public health is the right one.

Ford bypassing meat of the matter to focus on gravy

M

ayor Rob Ford was unusually boisterous on Monday when he faced reporters alongside a crowd of music industry executives to talk about his trip to Austin, Texas. I suspect it wasn’t just the prospect of visiting the Lone Star State that had him going. The real boost likely came from the matter of the Pan Am Games over-expenditures, and the afterglow of the scandal of the $2,500-abum councillors’ chairs. The chairs were ordered by an unnamed staff person; actually replicas of the chairs they were replacing: chairs that had been propping up councillors, mayors and their guests since the early 1960s when Toronto City Hall was built. Last week, Ford apologized for the purchase – coming in at some $75,000 in total – and strongly implied the person responsible for the purchase had been sacked. On Monday, Ford sug-

david nickle the city gested the same thing should happen to Pan Am Games CEO Ian Troop, if he can’t adequately explain a heap of questionable expenses filed by himself and his staff as they set about cobbling together the 2015 games. This is high-fibre feed for Ford, and the movement to re-elect him in 2014. Ford campaigned in 2010 with the simple promise to “stop the gravy train”. To illustrate his point, he held up outgoing Toronto Centre-Rosedale councillor Kyle Rae’s decision to spend $12,000 from his office budget on a farewell party for himself. In the total context of Toronto’s nearing $10-billion budget, $12,000 didn’t amount to much of a hit. But it surely made a difference to Ford’s fortunes in the polls, turning Toronto Council’s

perennial outsider into its preeminent insider. That’s a transformation that’s hard to repeat, but it’s the trajectory a Ford re-election campaign will almost certainly follow. Indeed, the mayor is already set up to do so. Council has long ago taken control of the municipal agenda away from Ford, setting its own budgets and carving out its way on transit. Next week, council will probably ignore the mayor’s wishes on the appointment of a caretaker councillor for Ward 3 in Etobicoke. Going into the next election, Ford is firmly on the outside. But just as Rae’s taxpayer-funded party was the key in 2010, so might these new examples of the ugly confluence of privilege and profligacy unlock the door to a second Rob Ford mayoralty. And the fact that neither of these are necessarily the best examples won’t deter him. The decision to

purchase the chairs at such expense may look bad on the surface. But Toronto City Hall is a historically significant building, and the councillors’ lounge behind the chamber is a significant part of that. Similarly, the Pan Am Games is a significant civic and national enterprise, one that will bring benefits to the city’s economy and infrastructure. And if its executives are wellcompensated, and take advantage of their expense accounts according to the rules... well, once again, it’s part of being in the game. But that doesn’t matter in retail politics. Rae’s use of his office budget to throw a farewell bash was all done according to the rules, too. It still riled voters enough to elect Rob Ford mayor of Toronto. And if it worked before, well, why not again?

SIDS awareness event shooting for a Guinness World Record CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

Staff photo/IAN KELSO

Yolanda Guitar is leading The Babeez Swaddle Challenge at LAMP on Fifth Street in Etobicoke on Friday, 10 a.m. to noon and hopes to set a Guinness World Record.

Just three months after losing her infant son John Dylan to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 2004, Etobicoke’s Yolanda Guitar mustered the strength to talk about her experience to a group of young mothers at LAMP Community Health Centre. Determined to help prevent the tragedy that had befallen her family from happening to anyone else, Guitar has built on that first presentation, and for the last eight years has volunteered all her spare time to educating parents on the perils of unsafe sleep during talks all across Etobicoke – including at LAMP, Stonegate CHC, Ontario Early Years Centres, women’s shelters, and beyond.

“Every opportunity I get to speak about it, I do,” she said, noting that her next big event – the Guinness Babeez Swaddle Challenge – takes place back at LAMP tomorrow. The goal of the event, which aims to claim a Guinness World Record by having more than 250 moms swaddling their infants simultaneously at 10 different sites across Ontario, is to raise awareness of the benefits of proper swaddling as a means of both soothing a crying baby and promoting safe sleep habits, Guitar added. “In 2012, we lost 41 babies in Ontario due to unsafe sleep – and 38 of those 41 were in bed with their parents,” she said, noting she personally knows of five SIDS deaths in Etobicoke alone over the last year or so. “A lot of times when babies

are crying and are fussy, parents will bring them into bed with them to calm them down, but another way to calm them down is to properly swaddle them. So, with this event, hopefully we’re giving parents another option for safe sleep.” free Halo Sleepsack During Friday’s Guinness Babeez Swaddle Challenge at LAMP, parents of babies under five months (and who aren’t yet rolling) are invited to take part in the challenge, and in return they’ll receive a free Halo SleepSack for participating. Endorsed by the Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (CFSID), Guitar described the Halo SleepSack as a “dummy-proof” wearable blanket that’s safest to use when swaddling babies.

So far, nearly a dozen parents have registered to take part in the challenge at LAMP, but Guitar is hoping for many more to sign up with their babies. The Guinness Babeez Swaddle Challenge kicks off on Friday, Oct. 4 at 10 a.m. at LAMP, 185 Fifth St., and runs until noon. In addition to the Halo SleepSack giveaway for participants, there will also be a draw for a safe sleep crib set worth $100, door prizes and swag bags to take home. Guitar encouraged all parents of infants to attend: “It’s another avenue for me to get that safe sleep information out there. The more people I can get that message out there to, the better.” Register at www.preciousmomentsbabeez.com/ babeezswaddlechallengewest-toronto.html

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

Famous PEOPLE Players: ‘Where Special Happens’ Black light theatre in Etobicoke focuses on helping developmentally challenged TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com

F

amous PEOPLE Players has taken the world stage by storm for nearly 40 years. Now the world-renowned black light theatre dedicated to helping those who are developmentally challenged finds its home in Etobicoke. “There is only one Famous PEOPLE players in the world and it’s here in Etobicoke,” founder and president Diane Dupuy said last week in the restaurant of the Dine and Dream theatre at 343 Evans Ave. east of Kipling Avenue. “People in Etobicoke should be seeing this exceptional, exciting company where special things happen.” “Where Special Happens” is Famous PEOPLE Players’ latest motto. Dupuy founded the company, a not-forprofit charity, in 1974 to employ developmentally challenged people at a time when people with disabilities were segregated. “We sought to reverse this limiting approach and replace it with hope and achievement...” Dupuy wrote in a Players’ brochure. “Everyone has some kind of handicap. We all overcome obstacles and drive toward our dreams.” Dupuy talks a lot about dreams. Teachers book Famous PEOPLE Players’ new educational programs, which includes the internationally acclaimed black light stage show and participation in interactive workshops. BULLIED Dupuy talks with students about children who have been bullied as the acronym: Believe in Universal Love, Living In Equality and Diversity. Many of her players suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which presents as being inattentive, overly impulsive and hyperactive, with difficulty sitting or focusing on one thing for a long period of time, the Canadian Mental Health Association reports. “I was bullied. I was a slow learner in school. It was traumatizing,” Dupuy said. “I failed Grade 3 then failed Grade 6. It was terrible. I’d be looking out the classroom window and it would become a movie

screen where I’d dream I’d be riding on a white horse. I tell kids how I got from there to ending up with an Order of Canada. I tell them how people win rave reviews on Broadway although they couldn’t make change for a dollar.” Dupuy describes to students a scenario where a little boy is climbing a magical mountain where dreams come true. Animals he meets on the way direct him. At one point, he falls off a cliff into addiction. “The story is about building your resilience. Kids need to build their resilience,” Dupuy said. expands life skills Scotiabank underwrites the Famous PEOPLE Players’ performances, as well as its Culinary Arts Program, which expands players’ life skills with kitchen experience toward a food-handling certificate. Players operates without any government grants. Famous PEOPLE Players is currently taking bookings for its Christmas show, Cool Yule, which runs from November through January. Call 416-532-1137 or visit www.famouspeopleplayers.com to book tickets. Tickets include lunch or dinner in the theatre restaurant, with menus created by Canadian celebrity chef Christopher Woods, who teaches players how to make the meals, as well as a one-hour theatre performance. Recently, one couple booked the dinner and show experience for 100 people to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. “Nothing is impossible when we believe in ourselves and stay on the right path in life,” Dupuy said.

Piano-Thon raises more than $7K for Lakeshore Arts CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Etobicoke pianist Frank Horvat’s fingers are no worse for wear following his highly successful Piano-Thon benefitting Lakeshore Arts over the weekend – despite the fact that he spent a full 24 hours tickling the ivories. “I was sort of surprised that when I finished playing Saturday, I actually felt fine. Obviously I was tired, but I felt physically fine,” he laughed during a phone interview Monday. “People kept asking me ‘does your back hurt?’ but I had absolutely no back trouble whatsoever...Even my fingers and wrists and shoulders – everything is fine, so it’s really strange.” As outgoing president of the Lakeshore Arts board – he’s set to step down in November – Horvat said the idea behind his Piano-Thon was born out of a desire to come up with a fundraising event that would not only support Lakeshore Arts’ ongoing programming

Staff photo/CYNTHIA REASON

Etobicoke pianist and outgoing Lakeshore Arts president Frank Horvat embarked on what was supposed to be a 20-hour Piano-Thon Friday in the Lakeshore Arts storefront gallery to raise funds in honour of the organization's 20th anniversary. Horvat extended his playing to 24-hours, but came up short on his goal. All funds will be directed towards Lakeshore Arts programming for youth and seniors.

initiatives, but also celebrate the organization’s 20th anniversary. What resulted was perhaps one of the longest swan songs in history dedicated to an

organization that has given so much back to its community over the last two decades. “This organization started in a church basement and has gone on to do so much in the

last 20 years in this community, that we thought there has to be some kind of event that will really showcase that and at the same time really help the organization grow,” Horvat said shortly before beginning his Piano-Thon on Friday. “A lot of the programming here – especially that geared towards youth – is either free or subsidized, from camps and workshops, to clubs and classes.” While Horvat set a fundraising goal of $10,000, he said he knew by 5 a.m. on Saturday morning – 14 hours into what was originally supposed to be a 20-hour Piano-Thon – that his 20-hour limit wasn’t going to allow enough time to reach his target. And so he extended his marathon by another four hours. “We really felt compelled to keep going and to continue the momentum well into the morning as people were starting their day and dropping by,” he said. “And from a personal standpoint, to go the full 24 hours felt good as well, as a

personal accomplishment.” By the time the Piano-Thon wrapped at 1 p.m. Saturday, Horvat had raised a grand total of $7,148. While he’s still shy of his $10,000 goal, Horvat said online donations continue to creep in – and he couldn’t be more grateful, especially given the importance of arts funding. All proceeds from the fundraiser, said Lakeshore Arts Executive Director Susan Nagy, will be aimed at expanding the organization’s programming for both youth and seniors. “We want to ensure that the programming we provide is still free and accessible – that’s really important to us,” she said, noting funds raised by Horvat’s Piano-Thon will help Lakeshore Arts expand its youth drop-in program from biweekly to once a week, its after-school programming to several times a week, and help establish daytime workshops for local seniors. “Frank has become a superhero in my eyes and is a huge champion for community arts in south Etobicoke. This is his gift to

us.” A University of Toronto grad, Horvat is a full-time pianist, composer and teacher with a new album – his third – due out in January (www. frankhorvat.com/). Now well-rested – he slept a full 12 hours Saturday night – Horvat said he’s had time to reflect on the “really intense experience” of his PianoThon, and while he’s by no means planning another one anytime in the near future, he’s thankful for the support it drew. “It’s been quite an experience, other than just a fundraising venture, it’s been nice to see how people have rallied around Lakeshore Arts and me,” he said. “...It’s really been overwhelming how many people got into the spirit of the event, and who dropped by to say hello and to cheer me on. So I really want to thank the community.” Watch Horvat’s performance at www.lakeshorearts.ca/ piano,where donations will also be accepted.

Widows’ Wellness Day forum features workshops and speakers The Islington Golf Club will be the site of this year’s Widows’ Wellness Day – a full-day forum designed to help widowed people move forward after loss and build a new road map for their lives. Led by Kelly Willis, herself a widow who is using her own traumatic experience to help others who have been widowed, Widows’ Wellness Day will feature a range of wellness workshops covering a variety

of topics, from the physical and emotional, to financial and social adjustment offer loss. After Willis’ husband of 13 years Skip passed away in January 2011; she was left to pick up the pieces of a oncehappy life. Through her own experience and research, Willis began to realize that widows face all kinds of challenges in the early years of widowhood: how to regain confidence; how

Willis decided she could make meaning of her experience by helping others. She successfully appealed to her employer, Newport Private Wealth, to offer support services for widowed spouses — a service she now leads.

National honours Help decide the future of the Gardiner Expressway East The Study Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto are carrying out the Gardiner Expressway / Lake Shore Boulevard Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment (EA) and Integrated Urban Design Study. The study area for the EA is shown on the map below. The EA will determine the future of the Gardiner Expressway East and Lake Shore Boulevard East, from approximately Jarvis Street to approximately Leslie Street. Four alternative solutions are being considered: • Maintain the elevated expressway; • Improve the urban fabric while maintaining the existing expressway; • Replace with a new above or below grade expressway; and, • Remove the elevated expressway and build a new boulevard. Changes to other transportation facilities could also be required. Get Involved Photo/COURTESY

>>>from page 1 property, for the simple reason that we only closed on Aug. 27,” he said, noting that Vandyk sent out 2,400 invitations to Monday’s meeting via Canada Post. “I’m sure that the community is interested to what’s in store for the development... but the only thing I do know that I can tell you is we did not buy the site to upgrade it as a retail plaza. “We will redevelop it and we’re interested to hear what the community wants. We’re looking at residential – it might be a mixed-use site, but predominantly residential.” Peter Patterson, a member of the Stonegate Ministry board, said there’s a “high level of concern” in the community that the redevelopment of Stonegate Plaza will mean the exodus of affordable shopping options – from groceries at the plaza’s ValuMart to clothing at Stonegate Ministry’s Outreach Store – and social services via Stonegate Community Health Centre, which is also currently located in the plaza. “One of the things that the community clearly needs is a commercial area, because people in the area aren’t

very mobile. There’s a lot of single moms and immigrant household,” he said, lauding Stonegate Plaza as a walkable hub in an otherwise ‘economically distressed’ community where not many residents have access to cars. “It’s not as if they can go somewhere and shop, so the existence of the plaza is important. It’s not an accident that all these low-rise apartments are around the plaza.” In the immediate area surrounding Stonegate Plaza, there are 75 low-rise apartment buildings, surrounded by largely single-family dwellings. Census data from 2006 shows that 25 per cent of Stonegate area households are single-parent led, while 56 per cent of the population are immigrants. While Patterson said he wasn’t surprised to hear of Vandyk’s plans to residentially develop the plaza site, he said he hoped they might consider a mix of commercial and retail with those residential uses to balance things out. “We want to give the developer a chance to know that these are our concerns and maybe to come up with a plan that will give the developer what it needs and still leave

the community with what it needs,” he said. “The community is resigned to some of the area becoming residential, but I don’t think I’d be overspeaking in saying that it would be catastrophic if it didn’t have the commercial aspect (including a grocery store). And if the health centre and clothing store were forced out of the area, that would be very sad for the community, too.” Monday’s community meeting, Caverson reiterated, is an opportunity for the community to voice just those concerns. So far, he added, Vandyk has not yet submitted any development applications to the city – nor will they until they get the chance to “gauge” the community. “That’s important to us. We’re infill builders – this is what we do. And there is a special process in doing it if you want to be successful,” he said. “You can’t just decide this is what you want to do and go forward. You have to gauge the community.” Planning to attend the meeting? Send us your thoughts about it in a letter to the editor: etg@insidetoronto.com

Embrace transit integration, says car-sharing advocate Transportation ‘cocktail’ aimed to reduce reliance on cars RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com In Toronto to give a talk on car-sharing, the head of Montreal’s public transit agency said the service is essential to his city’s transportation “cocktail.” Michel Labrecque was at Evergreen Brick Works to deliver a talk at a recent conference organized by the CarSharing Association (CSA). He was there to meet car-share professionals from across the world and to present the transportation cocktail: a mixture of alternative travel choices intended to reduce regular car use and promote alternate forms of mobility. “The car is not the problem, it’s that everyone owns a car and drives everywhere to do everything, and that’s bad,” said Labrecque, presi-

dent of Société de Transport Montreal (STM), the thirdlargest transit system in North America, which reported 400 million rides for 2011. “We as a public transit agency have an obligation to include the transport cocktail in our strategic plan.” Labrecque came up with the transportation cocktail as a way for SSTM to partner with various transportation providers such as Montrealbased Communauto, North America’s oldest car-share company. As the head of a public transit agency with a massive operational budget, Labrecque said it was possible for STM to support companies like Communauto through media campaigns, promotions and discounts. “We’ve got the power and the money to do that,” he said. “To become a transit

pilot parking space program for car-shares, and was appreciative of the interest shown by chief city planner Jennifer Keesmaat, who also made a presentation during the twoday conference. Despite seeing a rise in carshare use to the point that AutoShare, the city’s largest car-share provider, now has 13,000 members, a fleet of 300 cars and has recently expanded to Mississauga, McLaughlin said Toronto could learn from other cities that have promoted car-share use to take advantage of recent demographic shifts. In particular, young people are increasingly reluctant to aspire to traditional automobile ownership. “The fact is that young people aren’t buying as many cars and there’s an explosion – in San Francisco it’s an atomic explosion – of new ideas that Toronto just isn’t ready for,” he said. In contrast to Labrecque, who has frequently campaigned on behalf of STM

to strengthen car-sharing, McLaughlin was disappointed not to see any representatives from the TTC at the conference. “I don’t want to criticize (the TTC), it would just be great if there was another level, not just for car-sharing, but all modes of alternative transportation,” he said. “It’s somewhat typical they seem to be really busy and unable to deal with things,” he said. “We have had some conversations with them and every once in a while they include a flyer in their monthly pass program.” He said the local market, which is dominated by AutoShare, Zipcar and car2go, could use a “champion” from the city to push car-sharing as a crucial mode of transportation for the city. “But there’s no champion,” McLaughlin said. “No one saying, ‘Hey what can we do?’”

One subway shutdown in October The TTC has cancelled another planned downtown subway shutdown for October. T h re e c l o s u re s we re planned this month along the “U” portion of the YongeUniversity routes, but last week the TTC announced it no longer needed to shut down the stations between Bloor and St. George from Oct. 19 to 20. That means only one service freeze is currently planned, during Thanksgiving weekend. Shuttle buses will serve the affected stations during the one confirmed shutdown which runs from Saturday, Oct. 12 to Monday, Oct. 14. RETURNS AFTER SIX-MONTH HIATUS ◗LINK

Construction of the UnionPearson (UP) Express air rail link is well underway and now comes news the airport train shuttle service LINK is set to return following a six-month hiatus. LINK, which offers a frequent rail connection between terminals at Pearson International Airport, was

����� ����� TO �� TRANSIT replaced by a bus route last March. It will resume this month. Metrolinx is completing work on the UP Express, which is billed as the city’s first rapid transit connection from the airport to the downtown core. The four-stop express service is scheduled to open in time for the 2015 Toronto Pan American Games and will include stations at Pearson and Union. RECOGNIZED FOR YOUTH RECRUITING At a ceremony in Toronto last week, Metrolinx was recognized as a top Canadian employer when it comes to recruiting youth. The provincial transit planning agency was named to the 2013 list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for providing job opportunities to postsecondary students, as well as research fellowship and

internship opportunities. Metrolinx also recently launched a tuition subsidy program for current employees looking to further their education. TTC WORK ON VICTORIA PARK IS A WINNER The TTC also announced it had received an award for its restored bus terminal at the renovated Victoria Park station. Members of the design team for the project were publicly recognized at last week’s TTC board meeting for receiving a City of Toronto Urban Design Award, one of five awarded annually for architectural excellence. The re-designed bus bay received the honour after it was transformed, in the words of Beaches-East York Councillor Janet Davis, from a “concrete bunker”, to a welllit, gleaming, barrier-free area as part of a station-wide renovation completed in 2011.

Prepare your yard for winter Changing seasons can be tough on a lawn. Always exposed to the elements, lawns can fare especially poorly upon the arrival of winter, a season known for its harsh and unforgiving weather. But as punishing as winter weather can be on a lawn, hom-

eowners are not without recourse - they can take steps to help their lawns make it through the often stormy weather synonymous with winter. Don't procrastinate: Lawns will turn dormant the closer you get to winter, and they may reject

the nutrients found in fertilizer as a result. Those nutrients will prove valuable once spring weather returns, so start the winterization process in early fall so the lawn has sufficient time to absorb nutrients and strengthen itself for the seasons to come.

Treat trouble spots: Certain spots on the lawn seem to be hit harder than others, and those spots should get special attention when winterizing the lawn. Check the soil's pH levels before fertilizing or applying any treatments. Such a test will reveal which spots need the most attention, and treating trouble spots now will make spring lawn care that much easier. Aerate the property: Aerating, which involves puncturing the soil or removing cores of soil from the ground, can restore a lawn to health by improving its drainage and allowing more water and air to reach the roots of the grass. Aerating also makes it easier for nutrients to penetrate the soil, which encourages a healthier lawn over the long haul. Homeowners uncomfortable with the process may want to enlist a professional to tackle the job. Parents of small children who spend lots of time in the yard may

need to aerate their lawn more than most, as heavy lawn traffic compresses the soil, a potentially harmful process that can be reversed via aeration. Take steps to strengthen the roots: Aerating promotes stronger roots, but homeowners might also want to find a winterizing product with potassium and phosphorous, both of which can strengthen roots. Different types of lawns will respond differently to certain winterizers, so discuss your options with a lawn care professional who can help you find the right fit for your property. Remove debris from the lawn: Debris left on a lawn over the winter can prove very harmful. Piles of debris left scattered around a lawn can suffocate the

blades of grass, leading to longterm damage and a potentially unsightly lawn come the spring. In addition, piles of debris might make good homes for organisms that can damage the lawn. As fall moves into winter, periodically remove all debris, including leaves and branches fallen from trees. Make the lawn off-limits once the temperatures dip below freezing: A lawn should be offlimits once the ground freezes. Stepping on grass that has frozen will leave noticeable footprints, and walking on frozen grass can kill the turf. When winter arrives, people should avoid using the lawn as a shortcut into and out of your home and stick to driveways and sidewalks instead. – MS

Home improvement projects perfect for fall Home improvement projects can add value to a home and do-it-yourselfers know the sweat-equity that goes into such projects can give homeowners a greater sense of pride in their homes. But no two home improvement projects are the same, and homeowners should know that certain projects are best tackled during certain times of the year. Fall is a great season to work on your house, as the weather is often at its most agreeable once the summer heat has gone and before winter weather arrives. The following are a handful of fall-friendly home improvement projects for homeowners looking to improve their homes.

ROOF REPAIR Whether you're repairing or replacing the roof, fall is a great time of year to dust off

the ladder and get some work done on your roof for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, fall is ideal for roof work because you won't have to be up on the roof with the summer heat bearing down on you. This can make the project move along more quickly, which is especially beneficial if you are paying laborers to work on the roof. The fewer hours workers are fixing your roof, the less you will be paying in labor costs. In addition, fixing up the roof in the fall ensures those winter storms, be it rain or snow, won't find their way into your home via leaks. A leaky roof in winter is hard to fix, as the roof surface could be treacherous in the winter and winter winds can make it dangerous to be up on the roof at all. Addressing leaks in the fall can prevent damage to your home's interior, which

can mount up if a leaky roof is not addressed until the following spring.

WINDOW WORK When the weather outside gets frightful, poorly insulated windows can allow cold air into the home. That often has a trickle-down effect on finances, forcing you to turn up the thermostat in an attempt to offset the cold air pouring into the home. Whether you need your windows replaced or simply need to patch up any leaks, a proactive approach to leaky or older windows in the fall can save you from unnecessarily high heating bills come the winter. Addressing leaky windows also makes a home more comfortable for its inhabitants. Fall is the ideal time to address a home's windows because the temperature outside tends to be pleasant. This

means you likely won't have to make much of an effort to offset the elements, and open windows in the fall won't make your home's interior very hot or cold like they might if you were to tackle the project during the summer or winter.

FIXING THE FLOORS Wood flooring is a hot commodity for many homeowners. But not all flooring can be added to a home at any time of year. That's because certain types of flooring employ adhesives that need temperatures inside the home to be within a certain range, and that range is often within 20-26ºC, which makes fall a great time to install such floors. Colder temperatures can make it difficult for the flooring to dry and bond, which will prove problematic down the road. What's more, many people entertain friends and family come late

fall and into the holiday season, and it can be difficult to do so if you are busy installing new flooring.

PAINTING PROJECTS Painting is another home improvement project that seems tailor-made for fall. A fresh coat of paint or a new color scheme around the house can give a home an entirely new look and feel. But paint can be pungent and the aromas may last if it's applied at a time of year when it can't dry while the windows are wide open. Paint fumes inside a home can make the home uninhabitable, but painting at a time of year like the fall, when you can

keep the windows open during and after the project, can help air the home out. But interior painting isn't the only painting project homeowners can tackle in the fall. Many exterior paints are temperature-sensitive and need the temperature outside to be above 0ºC. Paint that freezes won't dry properly, and homeowners might be left with a costly and unsightly mistake on their hands. Fall temperatures tend to be amenable to both interior and exterior painting projects, just be sure to check the weather forecast before making your first brush stroke. – MS

Arrested man ‘a good guy’ Ford says of Lisi Sandro Lisi, an occasional driver of the mayor, has been charged with drug trafficking DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Mayor Rob Ford said he was “surprised, very surprised” to learn that his friend and sometime-driver Sandro Lisi has been charged with several drug-related offences. “I’m surprised, I’m very surprised,” Ford told reporters Wednesday afternoon, in an impromptu news conference at a gas station near his home. “It’s before the courts – obviously I can’t say much.” Ford made the comments after Lisi, 35, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and trafficking marijuana under $1,000, conspiracy and possession of the proceeds of crime. Lisi was arrested as part of a raid on his home at 250 Wincott Dr. along with a n o t h e r m a n , Ja m s h i d Bhrami, 47. Police later searched Bhrami’s dry cleaning store. ongoing investigation According to a Toronto police release, the arrests are part of an ongoing investigation. The Toronto Star has reported that Lisi has been under investigation by a specially formed police squad over allegations that he and Ford staff-member David Price tried to retrieve an alleged video seen by two Toronto Star reporters, apparently showing the mayor smoking crack cocaine and making various racist and homophobic remarks.

“I’m going to go down there and create jobs, stimulate our economy,” Ford said. “It’s a huge opportunity for us and I can’t wait to get down there and concentrate on bringing the music industry to this great city.” Scarborough Southwest

Sandro Lisi, friend and occasional driver for Mayor Rob Ford, was picked up in a raid at Richview Cleaners, and charged with drug trafficking and possession. The business, owned by Jamshid Bahrami, is in the Richview Plaza at Eglinton Avenue and Wincott Drive. MONDAY

Ford has denied the existence of the video. Lisi was described as a friend of Mayor Ford and an occasional driver for him. Ford acknowledged that Lisi is a friend. ‘straight as an arrow’ “He’s a friend, he’s a good guy and I don’t throw my friends under the bus,” said Ford. “He’s straight as an arrow and I’ve never once seen this guy drink. Never once did he do drugs.” Ford also scolded media, who had attempted to interview him as he left his Etobicoke home.

“You know what bothers me is you guys coming to my house, my front door,” said Ford. “That’s pretty bad. We can set up something but don’t come to my front door again, I’d appreciate that. I don’t go to your front door. I have kids, we’re getting ready to go away and you’re literally on my driveway, two feet away.” Ford is leaving town on a trip to Austin, Texas, where he and a delegation of city councillors and music industry leaders are to try to glean lessons from the city as to how to better brand Toronto as a music-friendly town.

Task force sought on safety zones for students City councillors hope to partner with Toronto school board to improve pedestrian safety DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Two city councillors are hoping to set up a task force between the city and the Toronto District School Board to improve pedestrian safety for school children going to and from their schools. “We’ve had two deaths of young children in front of two school zones,” said Scarborough Southwest Councillor Gary Crawford yesterday morning. “That’s two deaths too many...

The city has been working incredibly hard with the school board to try and figure out what to do. There is not one answer that can solve the issue. Banning trucks in school zones is not the answer. What is an answer is a concerted effort between all parties to really figure out how we can deal with the importance of school safety.” co-sponsored motion Crawford is co-sponsoring a notice of motion with York West Councillor Anthony Perruzza, to strike the School Safety Zone Working Group, which would consist of representatives of police, the city, the public and Catholic boards of education, and any other stakeholders. Both councillors are responding to tragedy in their respective wards. On Sept. 3, Violet Jia Liang was killed on her way to her first day of school at C.W. Jefferys, in front of Elia Middle School when she was

struck by a truck. Her death followed the death of Kayleigh Callaghan-Belanger, 5, who was struck and killed by a city garbage truck in March, in Crawford’s Scarborough ward. Crawford managed to get the city to reconsider routing of garbage trucks, and Perruzza had suggested it might be appropriate to turn school zones into no-truck zones.

Crawford made a point of saying that wasn’t a solution, but Perruzza maintained that reducing truck traffic would be essential. “When school is letting out there are thousands of kids on those sidewalks (on Sentinel),” he said. “So trucks obviously are one component of that. If there is a way to reduce the level of truck traffic during high volume times, that’s what the motion is looking to do. It’s not looking at a ban per se.”

parking lots for parents?

TDSB Chair Chris Bolton said that in fact those parking lots are exclusively for staff, guaranteed under their collective agreements. “The reason schools are built with parking lots are because of our obligations to our employee groups, not for the community,” said Bolton. He said that the board has been working on ways with Toronto police to streamline the process for bringing more crossing guards online. “In some cases it’s up to a couple of years and there’s no guarantee,” he said.

Perruzza also criticized public schools for allowing their staff to use on-site parking, which he maintained should be available for parents to drop off and pick up their children. “Because of that there’s spillover and the parents have nowhere else to drop their kids,” he said. “You have to look at that issue. School boards and schools have to bear some real responsibility.”

Demonstration of hearing aids matters. To better understand the potential benefits of hearing aids or of new wireless technologies, Audiologists, Gail Maron and Elka Gold often demonstrate to their patients exactly how hearing aids will sound. This experience quickly shows the increased clarity and ease of communication that hearing aids provide. HearCare invites you and a guest to Lunch. Although demonstration of hearing aids in the office helps people

to understand their hearing loss and to choose the right hearing aids, it is not real life. Gail and Elka invite you to Lunch with HearCare, a VIP event on Tuesday November 5, 2013, where you will learn about hearing loss, while wearing a set of hearing aids that have been set for you. In this real life listening environment, you will sample challenging listening environments: hearing in noise, hearing when others are talking in the background, listening to a seminar,

hearing close and distant speakers, and even listening to TV. Events like this are not to be missed.HearCare’s event on November 5th will allow people to sample hearing aids in more complex listening situations, to enjoy the company of other people in similar situations, to interact with other members of the community and to hear the benefit that hearing aids will offer, before deciding to proceed with a hearing aid purchase - all while enjoying lunch.

Gail and Elka look forward to meeting with you at the HearCare clinic before Tuesday October 15, to check your hearing and to pre-qualify you for the event. To register for Lunch with HearCare, please call us at 416-2414327, or online at info@hearcare.ca.

Mammoliti to replace Holyday Toronto council to decide on on Ford’s executive committee tough outdoor smoking ban DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com On Monday afternoon, Toronto’s Striking Committee recommended that Giorgio Mammoliti be re-admitted to Mayor Rob Ford’s Executive Committee. Mammoliti spent much of the past term as one of Mayor Rob Ford’s more vocal and controversial supporters. But Mammoliti quit Ford’s Executive Committee immediately after Ford was briefly convicted of violating the Ontario Conflict of Interest Act last year. Earlier this year, Mammoliti’s fortunes shifted for the worse, as he underwent brain surgery and faced prosecution for campaign spending irregularities in the 2010 election. According to Mayor Rob Ford’s brother Doug, who sits on the striking committee, all is forgiven – and Mammoliti is welcome back on the

Executive Committee, where he’ll replace former Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday, now a Progressive Conservative MPP in Etobicoke-Lakeshore. “No (hard feelings) at all,” said Ford. The striking committee was dealing with a number of vacancies on city committees and boards – some but not all created by Holyday’s departure. Don Valley West Councillor John Parker resigned from the Budget Committee so he could take Holyday’s spot on the Audit Committee. Six councillors were selected to sit on a task force dealing with school board issues – but not St. Paul Councillor Josh Matlow, who had worked to establish the task force in the first place. Matlow told reporters “the transit debate just got more interesting,” but would not say whether he was referring to his own comments critical of Mayor Ford’s subway plans

in Scarborough. Doug Ford said he didn’t think there was any politics involved in passing over Matlow for the position. “As you can see the mayor didn’t control the meeting. What the mayor’s job is to make everyone happy,” said Ford. “Because it doesn’t work if they’re not. You can’t force anyone to sit on a committee.” One councillor who won’t sit on a committee is former budget chief, ScarboroughAgincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande. Although councillors are required to serve on at least one committee by legislation, Del Grande did not offer any choices. Committee chair Norm Kelly moved to put Del Grande on the city’s Licensing and Standards Committee anyway, but the committee voted it down.

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto Council will be considering banning outdoor smoking within nine metres of all public building entrances and possibly in certain parts of public parks in November, after Toronto’s Board of Health recommended tougher new restrictions designed to curb second-hand smoke. The board made the recommendations Monday after hearing from 18 deputations and a report from Dr. David McKeown, Toronto’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, suggesting a range of restrictions – some of which the city can impose itself, others which require provincial legislation and regulation. Immediately, the board is asking council to make it illegal to smoke within nine metres of the entrance to all public buildings — which would include civic buildings,

private office buildings and even apartment and condominium buildings. As well, the board endorsed a plan – which must also be endorsed by the city’s Parks and Environment Committee – to ban smoking at public beaches, near sporting fields and in high-traffic parks areas such as shelters and picnic areas. And it asked the province to ban smoking on restaurant patios too. Mayor Rob Ford, hearing of the vote, called it “nanny state” legislation and said he wouldn’t support it. “I’m not a smoker, I don’t like it, but I don’t like governments getting involved in this. How far are they going to push it? Make the whole city smoke free?” Dr. McKeown said a total ban on smoking wasn’t likely in the cards for Toronto. “I don’t think that’s a practical objective in the short

30 YEAR WARRANTY!

term,” he said. “The history of trying to reduce the harm caused by smoking in Toronto is one of incremental measures. We do still have 16 per cent of people in Toronto who do smoke so we have to recognize that.” Board of Health Chair Joe Mihevc rejected the idea this was an example of “nanny state” intervention. “I think a better way to put it is to say that smoking when it impacts others is becoming less and less viable,” he said. “Smoking as a social enterprise impacts others: my right to smoke ends at your nose.” Dr. McKeown said the measures were appropriate from a public finance standpoint as well. “The government pays the cost that comes from this so when people who are ill with heart disease and cancer go to the hospital we pay the cost for that,” said Dr. McKeown.
