Contrary to popular belief, Run Ze Cao doesn’t spend every waking moment buried in textbooks. The Martingrove Collegiate Institute student has been named one of the top two Toronto District School Board scholars of the year, tying with North York’s Sean Goldhar with a mind boggling 99.7 per cent average. “I was in Singapore (competing in the International Biology Olympiad) when my report card arrived at my house so I found out when I got home,” the 18-year-old Etobicoke resident said. “I was like, ‘oh, OK’.” While not completely dismissing his academic achievement, Cao was more enthused about the medals he received over the past two years from the International Biology Olympiad and the International Chemistry Olympiad. “These are the nerd Olympics,” he said with a smile. Cao took seven courses this year, six of which counted toward his average. Though he couldn’t remember what his marks were in specific subjects, he knew he scored 100 per cent in four and 99 per cent in two. His full course load was made up of Advanced Placement (AP) calculus and vectors, AP functions, AP chemistry, AP biology, physics, English and data management. Asked if he spends a lot of time hitting the books, Cao said the >>>RUN ZE CAO, page 5

Flamingo flockings help to offset fees Girls softball league to continue fundraiser in community through autumn TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Fiona and her flamingo friends’ front lawn flocking has captured some $500 to help the Etobicoke Girls Softball League absorb recently reduced city sports field fees being introduced next year. The wooden Fiona and her 10 pink flamingoes pop up on unsuspecting homeowners’ front yards under cover of night complete with an explanatory letter in their mailbox. For a donation, homeowners

can choose a friend’s house for Fiona and the flamingoes’ next flocking. The campaign is expected to continue through autumn. “Fiona is still making the rounds,” said Wanda Benedek, a longtime assistant coach with the league. “We’re still getting a positive response. We’re hoping it keeps going. A lot of people are talking about her. We hear them out in the park (while playing softball games).” Benedek pitched the unique fundraiser to the league’s execu-

tive after reading online about its success in the United States. Since it began, no flocked homeowner has donated less than $20. Before its summer break, Toronto City Council reduced the fees being introduced next year for the use of currently free city sports fields by youth leagues. In June, Mayor Rob Ford’s executive committee approved fees for 2013: $6 per hour, $4 per hour and $2 per hour depending on the size of the field, down from the $12, $8 and $6 originally proposed.

Council cancelled fees initially set to be charged this year after a public outcry from league organizers who said it came without warning after they set their membership fees for the year. Etobicoke Girls Softball League learned it would have cost its 125player organization nearly $10,000 in playing field permit fees this year. The league’s registration for its 10 teams is $180 a season for younger players, $200 for older players. “There will be a lot of people >>>LEAGUE, page 5

‘Mad dash for survival’ worth the risk: laywer School in India benefits from fundraising run with the bulls CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

anastasiya muntyanu Age: 17 Event: Rhythmic Gymnastics Etobicoke roots:I was born in Ukraine and have lived in Etobicoke since 2004.

re you crazy? Not surprisingly, that was the most common response Etobicoke lawyer Mark Johnson received when he told family and friends he planned to run with the bulls of Pamplona to raise money for a school in India. Amused – and not in the least deterred – by the question, Johnson answered with a resounding ‘yes’ early last month by running not once, but twice with the bulls during Pamplona’s annual San Fermin Festival. And he has the YouTube video of his July 8 and 9 runs to prove it. “Let me first say that the bulls are not your real risk to life and limb – it’s the other runners,” he told The Guardian this week, shortly after returning from the birthday trip to Spain with his wife, Nina. “It’s like being in a crowded theatre when someone yells ‘fire’ or like being in one of those Hollywood disaster movies when the flood waters come rushing in or the aliens start vaporizing buildings.” To see Johnson’s ‘mad dash for survival’ – filmed with a rear-facing, headmounted video camera – go to www.kovalum.com “It’s the only time in my life that I have actually run out of fear,” Johnson recalled laughing. “There

Mark Johnson survived a run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain last month to raise money for a school in southern India. Johnson has raised $5,300 already, and his goal is $5,900 to help 120 kids get school supplies, computers and other academic support.

are bodies all around on the ground, you’re jumping over people, then you start to hear the cowbells around the bulls’ necks. Then people really start to pick up speed...You’re only exposed to the bulls for about five or six seconds, but it is such an adrenaline rush.” The outlandish idea to run with the bulls as a fundraiser for the Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) school project in India was a natural one for Johnson, who wanted to marry one of the items on his ‘bucket list’ with his continuing efforts to help give kids living in poverty a break. Through his part-time, sideline business Kovalum – a Canadian clothing label named after and inspired by a beach near the southern Indian hometown of his in-laws – Johnson currently already supports a girls’ orphanage in India by donating 10 per cent of the label’s proceeds. With the running of the bulls fundraiser, Johnson

has now expanded his philanthropy to include a small, 120-pupil school in the village of Kalvilai, located in the poverty-stricken region of Thoothukudi, India. So far, his feats of daring have raised close to $5,300 towards the purchase of computers, audio and visual equipment, reading materials and teaching aids to outfit the school’s resource library. To donate, go to www.kovalum.com While Johnson said his mother – fearful for her son’s life – was not at all supportive of his dangerous fundraising methods, he hopes his own kids Lily, 8, and Daniel, 6, will learn an important lesson about the importance of giving back from their dad’s fundraiser. “I think it’s important to give back to the community and to the world, and supporting a small school in India is something that I think we can have an impact on,” he said. “I’m not trying to save the world, I’m just trying to give these kids a bit of a break.”

1. What are you most looking forward to at the Games? For me, competing at the Olympic Games is a dream that I had since I first came to the gym at the age of five. Now I am close to fulfilling my dream. I am looking forward to performing at the Games as best as I can to represent Canada. I also will be looking forward to meeting athletes from around the world in the Olympic village and having fun. 2. What’s your training strategy? As part of the rhythmic gymnastics team I train four to five hours a day, six days a week during the normal schedule. Training becomes even more intense before major sport events and lasts eight hours a day. My training strategy is the following: full concentration during every training, setting a goal for each training session, and fulfilling that goal, which keeps me motivated. 3. Reflections on how far you’ve come? I started training as an individual rhythmic gymnast at Seneca Rhythmic Gymnastics Sport Program. After four years I started training at Kalev Rhythmic Gymnastics Academy. At the Pan American Championship 2010, I made two finals in hoop and ball

routines as an individual. After the championship I was selected to be part of Canadian Senior Group. For every professional athlete, the ultimate goal is the Olympic Games. After accomplishing this long journey to become a part of the Canadian Olympic team, I feel a big responsibility to represent my country at this highest level sport event. Since the Olympic Games in 1996, when rhythmic gymnastics made the debut for the first time, the Canadian team earned the berth in the Olympics during the 2011 World Championship in France. I am proud that in this success there is also a part of my work.

4. What would you like to say to the folks back home? I would like to say thank you to all the people who worked together to make this happen: my coaches, parents, and Gymnastics Canada. I want to say that I will give my everything to give the best performance I can. Please believe in our team and cheer for us. 5. Trivia: Before every competition I think about the time I spent in the gym and I tell myself: you’ve done hard work in training, now you are ready to show what you can do. This actually works for me.

Canadarm should come to Toronto, Ottawa

Make Ontario Summer Games part of your plans

To the editor: An iconic piece of Canadian space hardware, the Canadarm from the orbiter Endeavour, has left the Kennedy Space Center and is back home where it will go on display at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) headquarters in St. Hubert, Quebec. Why there? Why not in one of Canada’s two main aerospace museums in Toronto and Ottawa? It worked flawlessly for 90 missions, spending a total of 944 days in space and travelling the equivalent of more than 624 million kilometres. This globally recognized technological marvel deserves national attention in a venue accessible to all Canadians. Roland Kiehne, president CAW Local 112

here are three kinds of news. There’s news that touches a person intimately. There’s news that might spark a passing interest as long as the topic is hot. And then there’s the topic, irrelevant perhaps to everyday life, but as a curiosity piques one’s attention for a short period of time. The Olympics are the third kind of news. Sure, some sports fans will follow the U.S. basketball dream team’s activities; others may follow a Canadian sports personality like our view cyclist/skater Clara Hughes. But during the Games, sudCheck out the denly our attention turns to a variety of athletics not necessar- athletes, venues ily visible in our communities here in Toronto or seen regularly in the sports reports. Judo? Swimming? Great fodder for two weeks, for people with national pride yet no usual daily interest in the sporting world. But these events help bring a city to life. Think of the vibrancy of Vancouver during the past Winter Games. Look at the spectacle created these days in London. In 2015, we’ll have a very visible spot on the world stage with the Pan/Parapan American Games held in Toronto and outlying regions. Those games will be very visible in Toronto, with 10,000 athletes from 41 countries competing in 48 sporting events. It will be quite a celebration for nationals and immigrants from other lands in the Americas, watching “hometown” participants. But we’d like to remind you of another important, prestigious set of games going on in Toronto later this month. The Ontario Summer Games, drawing 2,500 young athletes from across the province, will be held at 18 venues across the city Aug. 16 to 19. These are the young stars in 21 different sports – and this has been an early test for quite a number of athletes who have gone on to Olympic stardom. This will be a chance to see some of the sports most people don’t often view – and a chance to cheer and encourage young athletes who don’t always have exposure. The Ontario Summer Games are a great opportunity for them to develop a public and visible face. We encourage you to consider attending some of the games events as part of your summer plans. It’s an opportunity to explore venues within your own city, and learn about unfamiliar sports. Summer in the city. So much to see, so much to do.

Toronto’s new chief planner has a tough job

A

t long last, the City of Toronto found a chief planner. Even though the job pays about $200,000 per year, it is not surprising that the position took so long to fill. For months the city has been advertising, then inviting promising candidates for interviews. What some saw, turned them off. In one instance, a candidate left after watching council and reflecting on the very public termination of the TTC’s top manager. But there is more to the vacancy story than worries about the professional environment and job security. And in that story is why the ability of the chief planner matters to all of us. The position looks after three main functions. Perhaps simplest of all is the challenging responsibility for about 350 staff, plus the daunting task of ensuring planning applications are processed in a timely manner. Never an easy assignment, there must be additional stress because planning is often first in line when budgeters look for savings, yet last when the

Beyond the headlines

city considers investment or recruitment. Next up the scale in difficulty is the chief planner’s responsibility for transforming our city. We want beautiful but functional buildings, attractive streetscapes that allow easy movement, and an urban form that changes with demographics, economics and vision. Meeting the future requires a host of skills, including resilience and self-confidence. There is a third part of the job, which is the need to change the application approval process. Presently it is so dysfunctional yet so self-serving, that stakeholders pretend that resolution is beyond the city’s jurisdiction, perhaps so that reform never happens. Specifically, the problem is reliance on the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) to enforce the city’s own rules.

In theory, planning rules should be understandable to anyone with access to the internet or library. Practically, even simple and compliant projects can run afoul of any neighbour with a grudge or a councillor’s whim. On larger investments, fees such like those supposedly for community benefits vary so widely, that making budgets for them is next to impossible. Accountability is made more difficult through the combination of a councillor’s unquestioned domination of his or her fief, plus planning staff who may wish to be agreeable to a councillor with whom they will deal with for years, and who reviews their budgets line by line. These difficulties invite so many questionable practices, yet unfortunately suit so many. Blaming the OMB is easy. Councillors support city wide policies, yet oppose those same rules when applied to their constituents. Unlike her predecessors, the new chief planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, comes from outside the organiza-

tion and just might take on the toughest challenges. She may wish to begin building independence by regularly circulating her staff. Bankers and auditors learned this lesson long ago. Next comes the task of convincing council to allow larger projects to be decided centrally. And finally comes the hardest task of all, which is to get executive committee to approve council committees solely for planning applications. Although it sounds so basic, council and planning can only reestablish their credibility by ensuring the rules council itself sets will be the criteria by which applications are judged. The chief planner’s position in Toronto is a tough job, with opportunities and risks lurking everywhere. How it is filled impacts so much, from signature buildings and how we enjoy our city, all the way to getting approval for home renovations. We wish her well. n David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief. Contact him at www.soknacki.com

League to make fundraiser annual marketing campaign >>>from page 1 who may not sign up,” league president Steve Poirier said in an earlier interview. “I suspect some girls might not have done anything this summer. Some people have three or four kids in softball.” Benedek and her two daughters all play softball. The flamingoes are the league’s deliberate attempt to fundraise, rather than raise registration fees, to pay for next year’s new sports field fees. “If we can do something not to raise the registration fees, I’m all for that,” Benedek said of the campaign. Benedek plans to make Fiona and the flamingoes an annual fundraising and marketing campaign for the league.

City

Toronto’s new chief planner ready for challenge DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com The last time Jennifer Keesmaat drew a City of Toronto paycheque was the late 1990s when she worked as an executive assistant for two city councillors: New Democrat Joe Mihevc, and Progressive Conservative councillor Jane Pitfield. “So I did both sides (of the political spectrum),” she recalls in an interview that took place just hours after the city announced the planning consultant’s return to city hall on Tuesday – where she’ll serve as chief planner for the administration of Mayor Rob Ford. At first glance, it doesn’t seem to be a perfect fit. Keesmaat, a principal in the Dialog consulting group, has publicly advocated for pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods, most notably in a TED talk extolling the virtues of having one’s children walk to school. She supports what she calls “fair pricing” of things like roads and other municipal services, and is an admirer of London’s downtown congestion tax. She is a believer in the value of cycling and public transit infrastructure. Mayor Ford, meanwhile, has opposed road tolls as a tax grab, and during the 2010 election promised

to not only stop the light rail transit plan unfolding in Scarborough, but reduce the number of bike lanes in the city. Some might call the match something of a dichotomy. Not Keesmaat. “I don’t think it has to be a dichotomy,” she says. “I think it’s a really important part of city building – ensuring that people have lots of choices. “What I hear in that story line about cars – this is what I hear, ‘I get around in my car and it’s difficult because there are cyclists in the way.’ From a planning perspective, I say let’s make it easier for everyone to get around. Some people will always drive their cars, and maybe they should drive their cars. But they should have choices. Transportation planning is about adding choices and to take transit, or live in a higher density community and walk, is a choice.” In her capacity as a planning consultant, Keesmaat has worked with municipalities across the country and around the world. Here, she’s worked on initiatives in major cities including Mississauga, Vancouver, London and Halifax and most recently founded the group

Jennifer Keesmaat has been named Toronto’s new chief planner.

Project Walk – promoting better understanding of pedestrian issues through various means. Keesmaat was hired to replace retiring chief planner Gary Wright, and will be taking the city through some fairly dramatic change. The portfolio includes not only landuse planning, but also transportation planning and the city’s central waterfront. “My sense of the task before us is that we need to make some pretty

bold decisions, we’re going to take some risks – we’re going to need to be inventive and embrace new kinds of collaborations.” Keesmaat is not the first chief planner to draw this conclusion. One of her predecessors, Paul Bedford, was a prime advocate for plans to tear down the Gardiner Expressway in the name of opening up the city’s waterfront. During that debate, Keesmaat came with a different point of view. She and her group presented a report that explored the idea of actually leaving the Gardiner up, but re-configuring the public space beneath it to make it friendlier to pedestrians and cyclists, thereby linking the city with its waterfront. Keesmaat insists that report wasn’t contrarian to Bedford’s vision. “Where Paul and I might not agree on the specifics or a specific initiative – I think what Paul and I shared was a preoccupation with creating great spaces and a recognition that creating great places meant investing and adapting infrastructure. In terms of that trajectory, my philosophy is about creating great places where people will thrive – and typically these are places where there is tremendous diversity.”

Keesmaat will be dealing with some specific infrastructure issues right out of the gate. In the fall, council will be taking another look at public transit infrastructure, after having sidestepped the issue in July. Keesmaat will have to weigh in on questions of what additional transit improvements ought to go where; and along with the city manager’s office, how one pays for it. While she hasn’t started the job yet, Keesmaat is a proponent of what she calls “fair pricing” for roads, admiring the effect that road pricing has had on congestion in London, England. She’s also watched with interest as Los Angeles residents voted in a referendum in favour of a special transit tax levy. “They had a referendum and the residents supported a tax, knowing it was dedicated to transit,” she says. “There’s inspiration for us – but to get there you have to have the real conversation first. People need a lot of information, need to understand how things work – what’s currently subsidized and what isn’t. We need to enrich those conversations with real data. Keesmaat will start work with the city Sept. 10.

wellness A smile rescue story ADVERTORIAL

Susan came to us in trouble. She hadn’t seen a dentist for over 10 years and now she had multiple broken teeth. As a Registered Nurse, Susan was an everyday hero. Always busy taking care of the needs of others, she didn’t have enough time left to pay attention to her own needs.

FEELING EMBARRASSED Susan felt ashamed of her condition. She was afraid of losing all her teeth and worried that her overall health was suffering. As a result of years of avoidance and procrastination, Susan became increasingly anxious about seeking a dentist. The consequences caught up with her and she become so ashamed of her teeth she wouldn’t smile and didn’t want to go out with friends.

FINDING HOPE Susan decided to take initiative. She researched her options, found our website and called our hotline. The first step was to let her know that it was okay to feel the way she did and to offer support in helping her move forward. She needed guidance from someone who could empathize

with her situation, explain options and recommend a suitable course of action.

SHE CRIED TEARS OF JOY Once her challenges were identified (which weren’t nearly as bad as she had imagined),and the path forward was illuminated,Susan felt tremendous relief. Within days, Susan was taking small steps forward and she felt thrilled about the improvements. Susan’s fear of dentists soon melted away. Trips to the dental office became easier with each visit and she began to glow as she was finally able to smile without reservation. You see, dentistry is more than restoring health- it’s about rescuing smiles. With renewed confidence and self-esteem, your passion for life flows again.Before long, she got back her health, her smile,and her sense of well-being. If you find yourself struggling with anxiety or embarrassment, we can help. Visit our website at www.RoyalYorkDental.com If you have an urgent need, call our New Patient Hotline at 416-231-0550 and ask about our Free-Trial, No-Obligation First Consult.

Stay safe under the sun Ontario’s doctors want you to be sun safe this summer. That’s why the Ontario Medical Association is reminding people about the importance of protecting their skin from the sun’s harmful rays. As many as 1,000 Canadians will die from skin cancer in 2012. In fact, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers account for more diagnoses than lung, breast and prostate cancer combined. Ultraviolet (UV) exposure and

sunburns are major contributors to the development of skin cancer. Both UVA (the rays that cause aging) and UVB (that rays that cause sunburns) can cause cancer, so it’s essential to choose the right sunscreen. Dermatologists recommend SPF 30, but make sure it is a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. It is also very important that both adults and kids apply sunscreen liberally and reapply

JAMES, Helene Wilhelmina (nee Kleinwort) It is with saddened hearts that Helene’s family announces her passing on July 29, 2012 in her 91st year. We and Mum believe that she is on a journey of new beginnings, and will be received with love by her family members and friends from around the world who have started their journey before her. We are comforted to know that although she has left our physical world, she will continue to walk and guide her family, especially her children; Karen (Bruce), Warren (Jeannie), and Brian (Shelley). She will be especially watchful over her grandchildren, great grandchildren, generations of cousins, nieces and nephews who have brought her much joy, and also to all the people whose lives she touched, whether it be the memory of her smile or that special “twinkle” in her beautiful eyes. Special thanks to all the wonderful people at Woodhall Place who helped Mum in her difficult final months. Upon Helene’s request, cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Her Life will be held at The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, 1535 South Gateway Road, Mississauga (off Dixie Road, 2 lights south of Eglinton) (905) 602-1580 on Friday August 17th at 7 pm with visitation one hour prior. Reception to follow. For an online condolence, please visit www.etouch.ca
