Ukrainians ‘stand in solidarity’ President of Ukraine says he’ll begin negotiations with opposition leaders TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Canadian-Ukrainians joined the chorus of western democracies speaking out this week against the vicious crackdown in Kyiv that has left at least 25 dead and hundreds injured. At Gu a rd i a n d e a d l i n e Wednesday, media reports said the President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, issued a statement calling a truce and said he would enter negotiations with the opposition to end the bloodshed of earlier this week. It was that violence that

Thousands of their pro-European Union brethren in Ukraine were pitted against riot police in the tent city they have occupied in Kyiv’s Independence Square since the political crisis began last November. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) quickly organized the emergency rally and memorial after Ukrainian riot police reportedly used rubber >>>democracy, page 12

Relations with Somali community improving: police report 23 Division hosts virtual town hall CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com In the 14 months since 23 Division’s Somali Liaison Unit (SLU) was first initiated, the six-officer unit has taken giant strides towards achieving its goal of enhancing police relations with Etobicoke’s Somali community. Gun violence in the Dixon Road community has ceased, officer-initiated programs for Somali youth are on the rise, and enhanced police relations with the community have helped open the lines of communication, Supt. Scott Baptist told the hundreds of Dixon Road residents who participated in the SLU’s second ever virtual town hall Tuesday night. “The Somali community outreach project strives to achieve meaningful dialogue and build trusting relationships with Toronto’s Somali-Canadian community through the provision of highly visible, proven and community-supportive policing services. And really, in a nutshell, that says it all,” >>>slu, page 25

WAR AND PEACE: Internationally celebrated Canadian author and journalist Gwynne Dyer took time out of his busy schedule last week to speak with students at Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School about the “powder keg” that is the Middle East. During his two-hour session with the students, Dyer touched on civil war and poison gas in Syria; a military coup and slaughter in the streets in Egypt; nuclear weapons in Iran; civil war returning to Iraq; and no real peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Dyer (centre) is pictured here with from the left, Tara Azizi, Shahzeem, Brendon O’Hara, teacher, John Bongolan and teacher Tim Stewart.

f we were to wipe off almost four years of dust from our crystal ball, the smoke would reveal a possible provincial election this spring. With that, comes uncertainty and, potentially, the province’s (and with it Toronto’s) transit file getting derailed – again. If we are to take Metrolinx at its word, the provincial transit agency has put everything on the table when it comes to transit in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). At its recent meeting, a long list of options was presented by staff, which will then get whittled down following consultations with the public and elected officials. More consultations? More waiting. And what feels like more of the same, which our view amounts to very little. Cynicism aside, Torontonians should attend Project any and all meetings when it comes to transit solutions. We deadlines need voices at the table. As many have to be met voices as we can muster. With some projects now underway – the Eglinton Crosstown LRT; the Scarborough subway was given the green light – and Metrolinx committed to a share of the subway relief line within 15 years, we have a shot at being part of the discussion. And according to Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig, the plans are not limited to one major project, but likely a series of improvements in the short, mid- and longterm. However, there needs to be a maximum time allotment for dealing with a project. No more open-ended deadlines. Projects take years – sometimes decades – to complete; so too much lag in decision-making is foolish. Each day we consult, every week we wait for another meeting, the longer it will take to actually finalize a transit solution for the GTHA. If Metrolinx is to embark on another series of consultations – the first round kicking off in March – we should be there to voice our ideas. With an initial short list of recommendations to be presented to the Metrolinx board in June, and a final list by winter, things will hopefully become focused. But when these projects will be completed is not so definite. A change in governments should not lead to changes to these approved projects. Deadlines have to be met. Decisions have to stick.

Del Grande exceeded expectations

I

n my career as a journalist, I’ve only made two politicians angry enough to put me on their do-notreturn-calls black list. The first was former Mayor Mel Lastman, who never really got over the fact that I didn’t endorse him for mayor in the 1997 municipal election. The second was Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande. In 2004, a year after he was first elected, he took me on a pre-Christmas tour of his ward and made some comments about the changing demographics there: specifically, that white people were moving out as Chinese people were moving in. I recorded them on an old-fashioned magnetic tape, and reported them, accurately. They showed up in The Scarborough Mirror over Christmas. By New Year’s Eve, commentators from outlets across the country were saying the worst things about him. And that was it for us. For the next 10 years, Del Grande would not return

david nickle the city phone calls, speak with me or even acknowledge my presence – with rare exceptions, usually when I’d written something that made him angry enough to warrant a tongue-lashing. Toward the end of his tenure as budget chief, he would line up one-on-one interviews with my colleagues in his office, rather than hold a scrum outside in which I might be present. On the weekend, Del Grande announced he won’t be seeking re-election in Ward 39. I have not called him about this. Given everything, I expect the call wouldn’t be returned. So instead, I write this column: in part, as an open letter to a councillor who has spent a career throwing up his arms in frustration and anger at his critics and his colleagues – and at the same time, accomplished many of the things I think he hoped

to see happen after he was first elected in 2003. Del Grande came to city hall with an accounting background, and he believed fervently that he was a person to sort out Toronto’s fiscal woes. He wasn’t able to convince David Miller, the then-freshly elected mayor at the time, and that began seven long years in the wilderness. When Rob Ford announced his intention to run for mayor in 2010, Del Grande was among the first to support him, and when Ford won, Del Grande’s support was rewarded with the job he first eyed in 2003: Toronto’s budget chief. And no one can deny: Del Grande worked that job hard. Unlike other budget chiefs, he took on the lion’s share of the work himself – often complaining of the long hours he spent at home, trying to fit the camel-sized realities of the cost of government through Mayor Ford’s needle-sized expectations of the price. Deputations coming before budget com-

mittee might have been put off by Del Grande’s gruff manner of questioning. But he did use the answers he got to put forward moderate compromises that he hoped would get the final result through council. And it almost worked. But Del Grande quit the job in 2013, when council voted to add more spending to his budget against his wishes. As far as he was concerned, he felt “vilified.” At this year’s budget meeting, he railed, quite accurately, against the lack of civility, and elsewhere has criticized the moral decline Ford has brought to the mayor’s office. And now, as Councillor Del Grande prepares to exit the realm of for good, I hope that he doesn’t think too poorly of the place that he feels used him so badly. It may not have lived up to his expectations – but really, over 10 years here, he has only exceeded so many of ours.

Leah Stephenson Board President, LIFE for Health By Tamara Shephard

LIFE FOR HEALTH IS A VOLUNTEER-BASED registered Canadian charity in Etobicoke that gives 100 per cent of its profits to alleviate poverty by addressing the physical, mental and spiritual health impacts of social determinants – particularly, Livelihood, Infrastructure, Food and Infrastructure – through small-scale, high-impact, sustainable projects in Rwanda and the Philippines.

How did a life crisis bring your late mother to international development work?

In 1989, I was 15, my mom had double vision for a brief period. She was in her early 40s. She had it checked, had a brain MRI that found nothing. Later that year, she had persistent headaches. She went into hospital for an MRI. My dad sat my sister and I down and said, ‘your mom

She was a very spiritual woman, a practising Catholic. She prayed, ‘God, I have a continued purpose on Earth to fulfill if I survive this surgery.’ The tumour was benign. She founded LIFE for Philippines Foundation.

What compelled your late mother to found the non-profit organization?

In the mid-1960s, my mom graduated as a doctor from Far Eastern University in the Philippines. It was a struggle. She was the 10th of 14 kids in a poor family.

father’s arms on the way to get medical treatment. She said, ‘that will never happen again. I am going to become a doctor.’ She came from a large family, a patriarchal society. She had to be an A+ student to get a scholarship. She started practising medicine. Then she had an existential crisis. She realized she could diagnose

and prescribe medications, but her patients could not afford them. She realized ‘unless I can address the underlying causes of poverty, which can prevent illness, and make treatment affordable, what I’m doing here is useless. I need to go to North America to make money in order to make a difference.’

What differentiates the organization you now call LIFE for Health from other Canadian charities doing international development work?

Every cent of net profit we earn goes directly to help people in Rwanda and the Philippines. Everything we earn as a charitable donation, and the entire amount donated at special events but our expenses. My mother

founded it as a volunteer-run organization, and it still is. She conceived the acronym Livelihood, Infrastructure, Food and Education, the social determinants of health, which at the time was not well understood...To this day,

we’re grassroots. We’re small. We can only raise so much money. But we specifically try to pick initiatives that don’t cost a heck of a lot, but that have a high impact over a long period of time.

How did you enlarge your charity’s mandate to include funding postsecondary education for Rwandan genocide survivors?

When my mother was sick (with cancer before her death in 2008) she said, ‘we need to go to Africa.’ I worked for a non-profit working for people with (HIV). My boss attended an international conference in Rwanda and reported there was an oppor-

the family they have left, a community, even nationally by having informed voters who engage in the (political) system. We’ve got more than a dozen Rwandan college and university grads now, and this year, we funded another seven.

How did LIFE for Health respond to the magnitude-7.2 earthquake in your late mom’s home province of Bohol and weeks later, Typhoon Haiyan? What other projects do you fund in Philippines?

More than 250,000 people were already homeless when the typhoon struck. People were living in tents, underneath trees. We focused on basics. We sent money with the provincial government there to rebuild typhoon- and earthquake-proof homes for the most vulnerable people who are low-income, disabled

tunity to start a project there doing capacity-building with women living with HIV and orphaned children. She asked Rwandans what would make the biggest impact. They all said education. Education is where you can make the biggest impact: on an individual,

or pregnant or nursing mothers. We have given micro loans to farmers to install irrigation equipment to help them go beyond sustenance farming and to bring their crops to market. Now we train rural women with no education in three communities through a train-the-trainer program

to work in a banana-chip production plant. We’re really pleased to see there is a market there, and channels for them to tap into a growing domestic and international market. We also fund a postsecondary scholarship in my mother’s name for poor scholars in the Philippines.

How does this work and continuing your late mother’s legacy fulfill you?

It’s continuing her work, her energy, her memory. I can feel her in my heart and in my conscience. No words can describe the feeling of satisfaction it gives me, my sister, my dad to know her work continues. Her won-

derful spirit of love, compassion, empathy, desire to make change and transformation really fundamentally can improve people’s lives and help them to attain holistic health. It is a reason for living. It is a feeling that you

are motivated by love, and that you are making a difference. However small, you are making an impact.

obert Home Smith is perhaps best known as the developer of some of the most beautiful subdivisions in Toronto, such as The Kingsway, Baby Point and Riverside Drive. But few people know he was also responsible for the existence of one of the most scenic golf courses in Canada – St. George’s Golf and Country Club on Islington Avenue between Eglinton Avenue West and The Kingsway. In the 1920s, Home Smith was developing the 3,000 acres of land that he had amassed along the Humber River Valley when he began to feel the pinch of a slumping economy. He conceived the idea that a golf course in the area would add sales appeal to his properties. At the same time, Sir Edward Beatty, a friend and president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, was building the Royal York Hotel in downtown Toronto. Home Smith convinced Beatty not only that this new

denise harris history corner hotel needed a golf club for its business guests, but also that the course should be located on a picturesque site he already owned in central Etobicoke. They entered into a partnership to build a golf course east of Islington Avenue and called it the “Royal York Golf Club” after Beatty’s hotel. The new course was designed by renowned golf architect Stanley Thompson and opened in 1929. A regular limousine service ferried hotel guests back and forth to the golf course. A beautiful clubhouse was completed in 1930 on a hill on the west side of Islington Avenue in a French Chateau style, with Tudor Revival touches that matched the motto of Home Smith’s company: “A bit of England - far from England.” Home Smith built a Tudor Revival mansion for himself

at 28 Edenbridge Dr., backing onto the golf course. By 1931, Church Street, the road on the golf course’s eastern edge, had been renamed Royal York Road. Home Smith died suddenly in 1935 at age 58, and his executor and partner, Godfrey Pettit, inherited his entire estate. Pettit was president of the golf club until his death in 1954. In 1946, the financial agreement between the golf course and the hotel expired, and the golf course became an independent corporation named St. George’s Golf and Country Club. Today St. George’s is one of the Top 100 ranked golf courses in the world, and was placed No. 1 in Canada in 2012. It has hosted the Canadian Open five times, most recently in 2010.

Etobicoke filmmaker makes debut with silent gangster film See AKP: Job 27 at various theatres starting Feb. 21

Courtesy photo

Etobicoke director Michael L. Suan's feature debut AKP: Job 27 premieres in Toronto this week. Billed as a "modern silent noir", the 114-minute film chronicles the trials of a veteran Yakuza hitman (played by Tyce Philip Phangsoa) as he navigates the 27th “job” of his career, while falling for a beautiful Toronto prostitute (played by Roxanne Prentice) who reminds him of his long lost love.

still in its development stage – has since enjoyed much success, touring film festivals worldwide and competing against Asian Indie giants like Takashi Miike and Kim Ki-duk. Acclaimed Canadian director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) lauded the film as “a wordless requiem for the professional killer. Poetic and romantic as it is brutal. A magnificent debut.” AKP: Job 27 was also nominated for a Free Spirit Award (for uniqueness and originality) at the 29th Warsaw Film Festival and for Best Canadian Feature at Toronto’s ReelWorld Film Festival.

Despite it’s success, Suan admits he had to stretch the truth to keep investors happy during the movie’s genesis. AKP: Job 27 opens in Toronto with a red carpet premiere, post-screening Q and A, and after-party at York Cinema, 115 York Blvd., on Friday, Feb. 21 beginning at 7:30 p.m. The film will also be screened at Woodside Cinemas, 1571 Sandhurst Circle, and Square One Landmark Cinemas, 100 City Centre Dr., beginning Feb. 21, and at Cinestarz, 377 Burnhamthorpe Rd. E., starting on Feb. 28.

Is love an assassin’s worst enemy? T h a t ’s t h e q u e s t i o n Etobicoke director Michael L. Suan attempts to answer wordlessly in AKP: Job 27 – his full-length, dialogue-free gangster film. Shot in Toronto and Tokyo, the film – a 114-minute “modern silent noir” – chronicles the trials of a veteran Yakuza hitman (played by Tyce Philip Phangsoa) as he navigates the 27th “job” of his career, while falling for a beautiful Toronto prostitute (played by Roxanne Prentice) who reminds him of his long lost love. “I can’t think of another country where a modern silent feature film with a chain-smoking, politically incorrect gangster can even get made, let alone gain the support of the country’s biggest film financing agency,” Suan said in a statement of his feature debut, which was produced by KingSky Productions International Ltd. and White Night Studios Ltd. “I’m very proud to be living and working in Canada, because it’s one of the few places left in North America where unwavering support for the arts in its raw purity can still strive.” AKP: Job 27 – which was dismissed by one production company as “not viable” while

Another was planned for Wednesday night, and another on Sunday at 3 p.m. possibly outside Toronto City Hall. “We were there to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian

people and to make sure other Canadians are aware that democracy is being trampled on in Ukraine,” Olya Grod, a UCC Toronto board member said in an interview Wednesday morning. She

also sits on UCC Toronto’s Euromaidan committee. “It’s absolutely shocking that the government would be using such force against their own people. They want to hang on to power so desperately that they’re shooting people. It’s live ammunition. It’s full-out war.” Fourth-generation Ukrainian-Canadians joined in the rally with people of the first generation, many post-secondary students with family in Ukraine, she said. Protests in Kyiv began in late November after President Yanukovych chose to abandon proposed ties with the European Union in favour of strengthening the country’s trade relationship with Russia. Many Ukrainians hopeful for a modernized country saw the move as a step backward to Russia’s Soviet past. Parkdale-High Park NDP MP Peggy Nash, who attended the rally, called the violence in Ukraine “shocking”. “Canada has to be very strong in condemning the escalating violence and use of force in Ukraine,” Nash said late Tuesday afternoon. “We join with UkrainianCanadians in calling on the Canadian government to impose economic sanctions, as well as travel sanctions on individuals and families involved.” Nash, who has a large Canadian-Ukrainian constituency living in her west-

Etobicoke Centre MP Ted Opitz and Selkirk-Interlake MP James Bezan, who is of Ukrainian descent, issued a joint statement Wednesday morning saying they are “disgusted by the callous behaviour demonstrated by President Yanukovych and his regime”. “Brutal force will not s o l ve t h e p ro b l e m s i n

nity contribution from the developer – monies the Humber Valley Village Residents’ Association (HVVRA) board said will be best spent on trees canopy and traffic flow improvements. “The redevelopment of Humbertown can be a positive change – one that everyone can benefit from. Nevertheless, for the next six years while the plaza is being demolished and rebuilt, our residents will be inconvenienced daily,” Niels Christensen, past-president of the HVVRA, said in a statement. Mature trees “We want Section 37 monies to improve traffic flow, including traffic calming measures and sidewalks on some streets, and to plant more mature trees around the plaza. By easing traffic in the area and rebuilding the tree canopy, everyone wins.” Under the Ontario Planning Act, Section 37 enables the city to ask for public realm contributions (funding channelled to capital improvements, parkland, public art, landscaping and so on) from developers in exchange for increases in height or density beyond existing zoning and policy allowances.

The redevelopment of Humbertown can be a positive change – one that everyone can benefit from. – Niels Christensen

Ontario Municipal Board late last year, the city is set receive nearly $2.5 million from First Capital Realty (FCR). While Etobicoke York Community Council will ultimately decide how to allocate that Section 37 funding, the HVVRA board has submitted its recommendations to Etobicoke Centre Councillor Gloria Lindsay Luby for her consideration. By allocating the funding to traffic flow improvement and tree canopy enhancement projects, the HVVRA said it is hopeful the funds will ensure “m a x i m u m re s i d e n t benefit” – as both issues have been cited by local residents as their top priorities at numerous public meetings over the last two years. The HVVRA board has requested that Lindsay Luby defer any decision as to how to spend the Section 37 money until specific recommendations from an arborist and traffic specialist can be obtained.

Four-alarm blaze destroys Adel’s Fine Jewellery and Gifts on Dundas

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com The Ontario Fire Marshal has been called in to investigate the cause of a four-alarm blaze that ravaged an Etobicoke jewelry store Monday. Toronto Fire Services responded to the scene at 5138 Dundas St. W. (near the Six Points interchange) at around 10:39 p.m. after receiving numerous reports of an explosion in the area. Capt. David Eckerman said when firefighters arrived on the scene, they found “heavy fire” in the basement of a jewelry store, which has since been identified as Adel’s Fine Jewellery and Gifts. “We attempted to attack the fire in the basement and found that the floor above us was partially collapsed, making it difficult to locate the scene of the fire,” he said, noting firefighters had no choice but to retreat and take a different tack. “The floor was spongy, so we cut a hole through the floor to allow the heat to escape and so that we could access the fire from above, playing water down through that hole.”

Toronto firefighters were called to 5138 Dundas St. W. Monday to find a jewelry store on fire following what appeared to have been an explosion. Crews continued to battle the blaze well past midnight.

By 12:36 a.m., the fire progressed to a four-alarm blaze, with a total of 44 trucks and 132 firefighters called

to the scene, Eckerman said. “At different points throughout the evening, we had to take on a

defensive attack, meaning everyone out of the building,” he said. “At this point, the fire progressed up through the first floor, second floor and into the roof finally.” Firefighters also struggled to turn off the gas, due to the fact the access area was damaged by fire, he added. Meanwhile, several firefighters were tasked with applying “positive pressure” to the jewelry’s store adjoining units “so that any heat or flame or smoke that might want to migrate into the adjoining units was hopefully pushed back,” Eckerman said, adding that, as a result, fire

damage to those units was minimal. Higher damage While very preliminary damage estimates came in at $500,000, it is expected that figure will rise. Eckerman said “feet upon feet” of water had accumulated in the basements of both the jewelry store and its adjoining units. While there were no injuries reported, one male resident of the building, aged 78, has been displaced by the fire. Toronto Public Health has been notified. Several road closures around the scene – including both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Dundas Street West – were still in effect Tuesday morning as the Ontario Fire Marshal continued its investigation and as Enbridge investigated any potential gas leakages as a result of the fire. No cause has been formally identified.

SLU officers are learning the Somali language and engaging local youth >>>from page 1 said Baptist, who served as second-in-command at 23 Division until January, when he was promoted to Superintendent at 13 Division. “One of the most obvious things that has been a benefit – and we don’t want to jinx it – is we have had no incidents of gun violence in the Dixon Road neighbourhood since the beginning of this project....For the SLU, it’s not just the enforcement of the law – it’s also building relationships and trying to help people and support the community in a positive way towards more positive outputs.” This week’s hour-long police town hall, conducted in partnership with Prime Contact, saw approximately 10,000 23 Division residents from the Dixon Road community contacted by phone and invited to listen in, discuss, and ask questions about the SLU’s most recent community

policing initiatives. One of the current priorities of the SLU is bridging the language divide between its officers and the community it serves – and in order to so, all six SLU officers recently began taking Somali language classes. In terms of outreach to Somali youth, Const. Raman Sandhu said she and her fellow SLU officers have initiated a whole host of activities to engage young people in the communities of Dixon Road, Queen’s Plate Drive and Islington Avenue. Every day of the week, in fact, there’s a different program bringing Somali youth face-to-face with SLU officers – Monday evening basketball sessions at Dixon Grove JMS; Tuesday night boy’s basketball and girls net ball at Queen’s Plate; Cool Tool School sessions on Wednesdays (at 390 Dixon Rd.) and Thursdays (at Queen’s Plate); mosque visits on Fridays; basketball games with the Somali Youth

Association of Toronto team on Saturdays; and soccer on Sundays at Dixon Grove JMS. And based on the success and rave reviews from a group of kids the SLU took on a bus trip to a Toronto Argos game late last year, the unit is now also planning on a few upcoming trips to the new Ripley’s Aquarium, a Toronto Raptors basketball game, and a Toronto Rock lacrosse game. In terms of recruitment, Sandhu said the SLU is also working on getting a youth police academy up and running as a means of encouraging Somali youth to consider a career with TPS. Added Baptist: “It’s absolutely critical in policing that Toronto police represent the community it serves, and it is so vital that we get Somali representation, and that all of the skills and cultural knowledge from the Somali community be part of our organization.”

Mazda mx-5 Miata celebrates 25 years On February 9, 1989, the world was introduced to the all-new Mazda MX-5 Miata at the Chicago Auto Show. A few months later, it was named as one of the five "World's Best Cars" by Road & Track and never looked back. Twenty-five years later, MX-5 has racked up more than 200 awards and sold more than 920,000 worldwide as of December 2013, making it the Guinness Book of World Records  holder for "Best-Selling TwoSeater Sports Car." Adding to these great achieve-

ments, more MX-5s are road-raced on any given weekend than any other model of car. The key to the MX-5's success is that it has not strayed from its promise to deliver pure driving enjoyment at an attainable price. Its introduction in 1989 revived the two-seat roadster segment, and it went on to be named to Road & Track's "World's Best Cars" list and was 14-times one of Car and Driver's "10Best". Enthusiasts are encouraged to wish the MX-5 Miata a happy birthday on Twitter using the hashtag

#MX5Turns25. It was launched in May 1989 with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine with 116 hp and 100 lb/ft of torque. A fivespeed manual transmission was standard, but a four-speed automatic was available as an option. Suspension was by independent double wishbone on all four wheels, and braking consisted of four wheeldisc brakes with the front ventilated. The engineering team created a three-fold, easy-to-operate soft top with one-hand operation that was lightweight and offered su-

perior weather protection, and is still the model of simplicity in today's roadsters. All together, the MX-5 Miata

weighed a low 2,116 pounds curb weight and could reach 60 mph in less than nine seconds. – Metroland Media

Chevrolet to oversee restoration of damaged historic Corvettes To help the National Corvette Museum recover from the massive sinkhole that opened under the facility recently, Chevrolet will oversee restoration of the Corvettes damaged. General Motors Design in Warren, Mich., will lead the project. When the cars are recovered, they will be shipped to the Mechanical

Assembly facility, a small specialty shop within GM Design, where the best restoration approach will be determined. Mechanical Assembly has been part of GM Design since the 1930s, and today maintains and restores many of the vehicles in the GM Heritage Collection and GM’s

historic concept cars. The National Corvette Museum is independently owned, and supported solely by charitable donations from enthusiasts. It is currently accepting donations on its website to assist in refurbishing the facility. Donations are tax-deductible. – Metroland Media

he South Toronto Golden Eagles Basketball Club House League played the very first game of its inaugural season, last week.   The goal of the program, said Chris Marcinkiewicz – who founded the Golden Eagles alongside Angelo Raimondo – is to provide a "fun and affordable" basketball program for boys and girls between aged seven to 13 in the Mimico area.   "The focus of the program is on teaching basic fundamentals of basketball and developing life skills, such as leadership, conflict resolution, sportsmanship, hard work and accountability, through the sport of basketball," Marcinkiewicz said. All Golden Eagles practices and games are open to the public and take place on Wednesdays from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. at Twentieth Street Junior School, 3190 Lake Shore Blvd. W.   Although registration has closed for the current season, the club will resume registrations for fall 2014 in early June.   Interested players and parents can also sign up on the Golden Eagles website at goldeneaglesbasketball. ca to receive updates and information on the upcoming season and to learn more about the club.

Silverthorn CI gymnast off to Las Vegas, Brazil Karstadt to compete for Canada at Junior Pan Am Games Justin Karstadt, a 16-yearold Etobicoke gymnast, has already booked a ticket to the Junior Pan Am Games in Brazil March 26 to 30. And he’s hoping that will lead to a berth to the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics in China. A member of Mississauga’s Futures Gymnastics and a Gra d e 1 1 s t u d e n t a t Etobicoke’s Silverthorn Collegiate, he’s coming off a three-medal performance in the junior high-performance division at the Elite Canada Championships earlier this month in Gatineau.

Justin Karstadt competes this weekend at the Black Jack Invitational in Las Vegas.

He collected gold on pommel horse and bronze on both rings and for over-all. At l a s t y e a r’s j u n i o r Canadian championships, he finished second all around, including gold in both the

pommel horse and vault and silver in rings. His growing success has left his family planning some fundraising in order to pay for an increasing number of national and international competitions. “We were told until he reaches senior level, there isn’t going to be much funding,” said his mother, Lilian Hee-Karstadt. His international career got started on the right foot last year, finishing second all-around (in the 1997-1998 birth year division) at the 18th International Junior Team Cup in Berlin last March. It continues this Feb. 21-23 weekend as he leads the Ontario team into the Black Jack Invitational in Las Vegas.

Protect Your Young Family. Today and in Your Future. Many people don’t think too much about life insurance — until they have a family. If you don’t already have life insurance, or have only minimal coverage, now is a great time to make sure your children and spouse would be financially protected if you were to pass away. Life insurance can help by providing a tax-free benefit that your family could use to cover expenses, pay off loans and debts, pay for your children’s education and more. Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to life insurance: ¡ Your life insurance benefit can be used to pay for whatever your family needs or wants — from mortgage costs to day-to-day expenses, to summer camps and vacations. ¡ A stay-at-home spouse needs life insurance too, even if they’re not earning an income. The work they do at home, including childcare, housekeeping, cooking and more, comes with significant financial value. Life insurance could cover those costs and give them the flexibility to take time off work to help themselves and your children deal with their loss. ¡ Even if you have coverage from work, it may not be enough. Plus, it may not continue if you were to leave your current employer. Your own policy stays with you, regardless of your employment status. ¡ We offer a variety of life insurance plans that can suit your budget, lifestyle and needs. And, you can make changes to your policy as your life changes and your needs evolve. Underwritten by RBC Life Insurance Company.
