Voters in the upcoming provincial byelection in EtobicokeLakeshore will find a familiar name replacing Liberal Laurel Broten’s on their ballots come next month – that of longtime local councillor Peter Milczyn. Milczyn, a lifelong Etobian who has represented EtobicokeLakeshore at the municipal level for 16 years, this week gained the Ontario Liberal Party’s nomination to run in the Aug. 1 byelection to replace the veteran cabinet minister, who officially resigned from her post earlier this week. For Milczyn, Broten’s resignation came as an unexpected, yet “serendipitous” surprise – bringing with it the opportunity to elevate Etobicoke>>>QUEEN’S, page 5

TDSB won’t sell off Rexdale school: trustee CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

Rumours quelled after 30-year tenants move out of building

Rampant rumours that the site of the former Rexdale Public School in north Etobicoke has been sold off to make way for

public housing were unequivocally dismissed by school board officials this week. “I’ve talked to a lot of people

in the community who think we’re selling the school, but we’re not,” assured Etobicoke North Trustee John Hastings.

“There’s going to be some school functions going in there, like Safe and Caring Schools is one, and there’s a couple of

others that I’m working on. But the main message is: no, the school is not being sold.” >>>SITE, page 25

Ben Omoregie named TFC community MVP Youth Without Shelter’s operations manager competing for $10,000 grand prize

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

With our youth, trust is a big issue. The majority of them have gone through traumatic experiences ... So when they come here (to YWS), they find a platform to being a new life

T

o the homeless youth at Etobicoke’s Youth Without Shelter (YWS), Ben Omoregie has always been an MVP – but it wasn’t until this month that the soccer super fan was officially bestowed the title by Toronto FC. Omoregie, YWS’s operations manager, was recently named the soccer club’s most valuable player as part of Major League Soccer’s (MLS) Community MVP Contest – a competition designed by MLS to tell the stories of soccer fans who use the sport to: enhance the communities in which they live and work; promote goodwill; demonstrate leadership qualities; and help to improve lives within their community. To those ends, Omoregie was a natural fit, said Breagha Carr-Harris, Toronto FC’s manager of Community Sport Partnerships. “It’s so well deserved. In my job, I get to meet a lot of really great people in the community and Ben just has a heart of gold – and he doesn’t even know it,” she said. “He is unselfish in everything he does, and he’s just a really amazing person. So, to have him as our MVP representing TFC around the league makes us really proud.” Nominated by YWS’s development manager Judy Leroux for being a “huge proponent of youth recreation and sports access” at YWS, Omoregie is now one of 19 MLS Community MVPs, each representing an MLS club. All 19 MLS Community MVPs will now compete in an online contest for the grand prize of $10,000 toward the charity of their choice and an allexpenses-paid trip to the 2013 MLS All-Star Game in Kansas City later this month. Online voting is open

– Ben Omoregie

until July 12. While Omoregie said the trip to the all-star game would be a dream come true, the real reward would be seeing that $10,000 in prize money benefit the lives of the homeless youth he works with every day at YWS – Etobicoke’s only emergency residence and referral agency dedicated to providing shelter and support programs for homeless youth aged 16 to 24. Omoregie started as a frontline worker at YWS a decade ago and has regularly used soccer as a means of striking up more informal, personal relationships with the troubled youth he often works with. “With our youth, trust is a big issue. The majority of them have gone through traumatic experiences – family breakdown, addiction, abuse and so on. So when they come here (to YWS), they find a platform

to begin a new life,” he said, noting he’s initiated informal soccer games with the youth as a means of both stress relief and relationship building. “They enjoy it a lot and it’s a very informal way of having a conversation – it doesn’t really create that kind of staff-resident relationship, it creates a friendship. It connects us well...it brings home for

them the idea that ‘okay, you are not only someone I look up to, but you are also a friend and we can hang out together and do things that are positive together.’ So it’s amazing.” Last summer, Toronto FC helped Omoregie integrate soccer as a positive outlet even further into the lives of the youth at YWS, when the shelter was chosen as one of the “small

organizations making a big impact in the community” highlighted as part of TFC12 – a program whereby the soccer club celebrates 12 consecutive days of community outreach. Since then, the soccer club has maintained the relationship with the youth at YWS, regularly sending players to the shelter to speak with the

youth, and donating tickets to their home games at BMO Field. The experience for the youth – many of whom have never been to a professional sports game – has been great, said Omoregie. “It’s just a way to de-stress for the youth, because when they come into the shelter, they go through so many things,” he said. “Going to the games takes away from a lot of their stress just have a fun time in a good environment. Some of them have never gone to a game or had an opportunity to even see anything like that, so it’s really amazing to be able to take them and have fun, and at the same time spend time with them on a very informal basis.” As for the contest, Omoregie is more excited about the impact the prize money would have on his youth than on any glory the title would bring upon himself. “Any money to the shelter is always welcome,” he said, noting that in addition to emergency shelter and residential services, and employment and lifeskills programs, YWS also offers a life-changing Stay-in-School program that this year saw six homeless youth graduate high school. “That $10,000 would go a long way to supporting those programs.”

Candidates vying for legislative seat must earn the vote

yelections are a chance for people to become engaged in community building – and hold vote-seeking candidates to account on issues of importance. And with five provincial byelections upcoming, it’s a chance for the voter to show their support (or not) for the government of the provincial Liberals. In Toronto, where two of the votes are being held, all but five of Toronto’s 23 seats (counting PickeringScarborough East) are in the hands of the governing Liberals. The others are NDP. None are held by the Progressive Conservatives. The results could be interpreted as more than a mere microcosm of how voters feel the minority Liberal government is performing. That’s because the relationship between our city and the province is rocky these days. Toronto has a right-leaning our view mayor in Rob Ford who is clearly not seeing eye to eye with the Voters need governing Liberals. After a meeting last week with provincial finance clear message minister Charles Sousa, he and put forward diametrically in byelections Sousa different viewpoints over a controversial $150 million cut in provincial grant money to the city. Ford has responded by asking the city manager to report to council on the implications of this funding shortfall. Then there’s the matter of competing visions over what to do with the Scarborough RT line – and transit funding in general. The CEO of provincial transit agency Metrolinx has raised the possibility of stopping work on the new light rail replacement of the RT – in light of a recent Toronto council resolution asking for a subway instead. The light rail line, per an agreement between the city and the province, is being funded by the province. A subway line is not. In Scarborough-Guildwood and EtobicokeLakeshore, byelections are being scheduled to replace departing Liberals Margarett Best and Laurel Broten, respectively. Voters must look beyond traditional voting support and ask for policy positions on the real issues that affect the people of Toronto. Toronto remains the economic driver for this province and country. Success of Toronto is significant in every corner of this province. Voters deserve a clear message from candidates on whether their political parties believe it – and what that means for a provincial commitment on transit funding. The candidates are seeking your vote. Make them earn it.

column

Possibilities are endless when it comes to municipal election time in Toronto Rob Ford isn’t the only one thinking about the next municipal election in 2014. Radio host John Tory’s thinking about it, word is that TTC Chair Karen Stintz is building a team and New Democrat MP and former Toronto city councillor Olivia Chow is aimed that way too. It’s all an invitation to start up a game of fantasy politics post-haste, scour the polls and start picking winners and losers. That’s all good fun. But it puts aside a more vital question: just exactly what the next Mayor of Toronto will be left to work with, once the ballots are cast and the winner’s chosen, and what that individual will be able to do with it? Mayor Rob Ford has repeatedly maintained it’s been his job to reduce the size and cost of government. He claims he has

david nickle the city so far saved taxpayers a billion dollars. The claim’s not entirely accurate – he’s included both the removal of the vehicle registration tax and the increase of user fees – but it is wrong to say the mayor hasn’t done taxpayers a good turn, contracting out garbage collection and taming unions and cutting councillors’ budgets. If he’s not re-elected for all that, however, he will also have done his successor a good turn. Focus on surplus For running on two years now, the Ford administration has operated under a strict policy of sliding three-quarters of

prior year surpluses into the city’s capital budget and holding back the rest for unanticipated liabilities. This year, that surplus amounts in total to $248 million. So $186 million will be going to pay for the sorts of projects that in the past the city has funded through debt. Last year, the surplus was higher: $292.7 million. This 75-25 policy is a child of the Ford administration but happily midwived by the city’s finance staff. Keeping debt levels low makes for far more manageable books and more predictable revenue streams. It also limits city council’s ability to make in-year operating changes, and allows Ford to continue the business of shrinking government in terms of the services it provides.

What it does for a future mayor – one with more governmental ambition – is another thing entirely. By sending surpluses to reduce debt, what the Ford administration has done is create borrowing room for an ambitious mayor to embark on a much more ambitious capital program going forward. Shelley Carroll, the former budget chief under former mayor David Miller and a sometime-mayoralhopeful herself, wonders what might be done with the Gardiner Expressway going forward. Many things become possible, for a city-building mayor riding in on the heels of a mayor whose major ambition was to put a hold on ambitious projects.

Queen’s Park came calling after Broten resigned >>>from page 1 Lakeshore’s “issues, priorities and concerns” to the provincial stage. “She stepped down and I started getting phone calls from Queen’s Park. It wasn’t planned, nor was it a long-standing goal of mine – things just came together as they did,” he said in an interview with The Guardian on Wednesday. “It’s an interesting opportunity to take the knowledge and skills that I’ve developed at city hall over the years around the transit file and planning, and bringing it all together and hopefully being able to have a positive impact for the city and the GTA and the rest of the province as well.” A longtime Liberal, Milczyn first got his start in the party by campaigning for the Liberals in EtobicokeLakeshore more than 30 years ago, and worked his way up to becoming president of the Etobicoke-Lakeshore Federal Liberal Association. After resigning from that post in 1993, Milczyn ran and was elected into office in the former City of Etobicoke in 1994. He was then re-elected as Ward 5 councillor in the amalgamated City of Toronto in 2000, and has held the EtobicokeLakeshore ward since. He currently serves as chair of the city’s

Planning and Growth Management Committee, as a TTC commissioner, and as a member of Mayor Rob Ford’s executive committee, BUILD Toronto, and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. If elected MPP, Milczyn said he will bring that experience with him to Queen’s Park and that his focus will remain on local issues – from seeing to the construction of the Kipling inter-regional transit hub, to the redevelopment of the Westwood Theatre lands, to dealing with the city’s big transit issues through Metrolinx.

“Certainly, if the people of Etobicoke-Lakeshore elect me, I’ll still be involved in a lot of local issues that I’ve been involved with,” he said. “I won’t be going anywhere. And I still certainly will know how to get in touch with people in city hall to get things done.” Milczyn might not be the only Etobicoke councillor on the Etobicoke-Lakeshore provincial byelection ballot come Aug. 1. Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday announced on Wednesday he’s considering running in the riding for the Ontario PC party. Milczyn wished his longtime councilmate the best of luck should he opt to run – a decision Holyday is expected to make by end of week. “I’ve known Doug Holyday personally for 20 years. Good luck to him. I’m happy to battle it out doorto-door, street-to-street in my riding with him,” he said. As for the news that Mayor Rob Ford said he’d throw his support behind Holyday, Milczyn said it came as no surprise. “The mayor is a Conservative, so no surprise there. That’s fine,” he added. “I’ve had tough opponents before and I’ve won. I’m not in the slightest intimidated by that.”

Doug Holyday mulling bid for Queen’s Park Mayor Rob Ford’s Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday is seriously considering a run in the Etobicoke-Lakeshore byelection next month. “There’s a lot at stake and the Conservatives would love to win a seat in Toronto and I’d have a good chance,” Holyday told reporters Wednesday morning. Holyday currently represents voters in Etobicoke Centre. He said Progressive Conservative Tim Hudak had approached him to go after the seat, even as fellow councillor, Etobicoke-Lakeshore Councillor Peter Milczyn announced he would be running for the Liberals to replace outgoing Liberal MPP Laurel Broten. Holyday has run provincially once before, in 1987, and said he’s repeatedly refused requests from federal and provincial parties since then. “I guess this is a little bit more different – there’s more pressure on me,” he said. Holyday said he hadn’t yet made up his mind. But he emphasized the stakes are high for Progressive Conservatives in Toronto.

“As you know the Conservatives do not hold a seat in Toronto – they’d like to break the pain and they think I can do it,” he said, and when asked if he was confident he could win the race, he said he was. “I think I’d have a good chance and I certainly think it’s time for a change. The Liberals have had their way there for 10 years. The taxpayers are fed up with that, they want a different outlook and I can provide that.” Holyday’s departure would leave a serious gap in Mayor Ford’s inner circle. Holyday said he’d spoken to Ford and the mayor said he’d support him. At a later media availability, Mayor Ford confirmed as much. “I support the Deputy Mayor, and I’m going to do everything in my power if he decides to run to get him elected,” Ford said. “Of course I don’t want to lose him. He’d be a huge asset for us at Queen’s Park.” Holyday said that if he does accept the nomination – which he expects to announce Thursday morning – he would take a leave of absence during the campaign period. – David Nickle

The Kipling Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard West area resident, who studied music at Humber College, won the international

competition last month, beating out 400 other artists and bands in a tight online race that went right to the wire. “I was watching (the online voting) till the last millisecond. It was crazy,” he said in a phone interview with The Guardian Tuesday, just hours before boarding his flight to France. “Me and the person in second place were having this, like, epic battle. We literally won in the last second. The entire day we were losing by about a hundred votes, but my fans just kept going.” To see ColinResponse’s winning video ‘She Dances in the Rain’, go to www.hennessy.com/en-ca/music/ talent_quest ColinResponse – whose name is a play on the musical “call and response” phrasing that defines his sound – said he knew winning Hennessy’s Talent Quest was a longshot, but was determined to enter nonetheless. “I will never say no to an oppor-

tunity. Ever,” he said of his decision to enter Talent Quest, which was launched by Hennessy Cognac last

year in celebration of the brand’s “endless devotion” to music, culture and live performance. “Even if it seems like the least likely thing to happen, I always think, like, it’s gonna happen to somebody, so why not me?” Music, the Brampton native said, has been his life-long passion. “I honestly couldn’t tell you when I discovered music. Every memory I have, I always loved music. My mom told me once that when I was really, really small, I used to have a toy guitar that I always walked around with, saying ‘I want to play guitar!’” he said with a laugh, noting his love of music was one inherited from his parents. “My mom can’t sing well, but she loves to sing. And my dad, he had a big record collection when I was growing up, and I used to listen to his music just by proxy, with him blasting it in the basement.” Describing his musical style as pop/soul, ColinResponse hits the stage with a six-piece band, featuring a horn section “notorious for transforming even their mildest tempo recordings into upbeat dance music that takes charge of any audience.”

“When you’re listening to it, you’re like ‘I kind of want to dance to this’ because there’s a vibe to it, but there’s also that kind of authenticity,” he explained. “I write all the music and while I’m writing, I’m thinking about the message and what I’m trying to say as it’s coming out. So, that’s where I attribute the whole soul aspect to it.” While ColinResponse has already shared the stage with such esteemed Canadian artists as Lights, Kardinal Offishall and Mariana’s Trench, he said he’s looking forward to performing in Europe for the first time – especially given the star-studded line-up at this year’s Cognac Blues Passions Festival. “I’ve never performed in Europe, so it’s super exciting. I’m super, super stoked,” he said. “Plus, I get to play one of the biggest festivals down there – the Blues Passions Festival. It’s going to be an incredible experience... and Eryka Badu is going to be playing and that’s pretty sick.”

Just recently, an arbitrator awarded firefighters a 14.26 per cent raise over five years, far in excess of the 6.5 per cent given to Toronto’s inside and outside workers, well above the rate of inflation, and higher than settlements in the private sector. Our firefighters are not alone in achieving lucrative awards. Joining the ranks of very well paid municipal workers are our police and paramedics, whose remuneration increased by almost six per cent annually despite a flat economy, according to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. How do they do it? It begins by having their service declared essential. On paper it looks like a fair deal. The two sides agree not to have a strike or lockout, but instead take their differences to binding arbitration. Practically, competition among municipalities, the

david soknacki beyond the headlines rigid nature of arbitration, and provincial governments unwilling to take on powerful unions all conspire to preserve a system that pushes up costs. Toronto’s woes were rejected by the arbitrator when he pointed to our surpluses. In jurisdictions as challenged as Windsor and Scugog, large awards were 0given with little consideration to difficulties in those local economies. And part of the problem is that arbitrators will not open up contracts to find savings, such as changing work practices. Usually arbitrators deal solely with outstanding issues, meaning remuneration and other benefits. That means the only major question open for arbitration is how high to raise pay. Since firefighting standards are the same throughout the province, municipalities compete for trained workers, and the

current arbitration system is so skewed in favour of one of the parties, using provincial powers makes sense. Perhaps the simplest way is to limit the rate of increase province-wide. Even though the costs of arbitrated contracts would continue to be paid by the municipalities, the provincial government will avoid involvement probably because it wants no part of confronting some of the strongest and savviest unions around. As well, the current provincial Liberal government requires the support of the NDP. As a result, the public’s problem of paying more than necessary for arbitrated services will remain. The too expensive costs of these settlements remain part of the tangled mess of our intergovernmental relations, a downloaded problem, every bit as significant as public housing, transit and social services.

Mimico native brings Stanley Cup home Dave Bolland coming back to Toronto in a trade between Blackhawks NORM NELSON nnelson@insidetoronto.com For the second time in four years the Stanley Cup will be coming home to Toronto – thanks to Mimico native Dave Bolland. Ironically, the fiesty 27-year-old forward who scored the Stanley Cup winning goal for the Chicago Blackhawks in the recently concluded Stanley Cup championship, is now a Toronto Maple Leaf through a trade completed Sunday. In a video interview with NHL. com, Bolland said he’ll likely split his traditional day with the Stanley Cup between London where he played his junior hockey (and where the Leafs will play their first pre-season game this fall) and Mimico where he was born and raised. “I’ll have to take it to the legendary Blue Goose (Tavern) to have the Stanley Cup on display there,” he quipped in the interview. While Bolland’s time with the

Stanley Cup for 2013 has not been decided yet, but he recalled his triumphant 2010 Stanley Cup visit to Mimico as “pretty crazy.” “We had a little parade and we did a little thing.” Bolland hardly had time for the post-Stanley Cup celebrations to start winding down when the trade was announced. The news was bittersweet. “You go from an ultimate high to not really an ultimate low, but when you get traded you’re leaving the guys, you’re leaving the city,” he said in the video interview. “(I’m) going to miss Chicago, I’ve been there so long.” Indeed, he has played his whole career in the Windy City amassing 168 points in 332 regular season games and 43 points in 67 post season games. On the other hand, like most hockey-playing kids in Toronto, he grew up a Leaf fan. “You never think in how many years you’re going to actually play for them – I’m excited and happy to be there.”

I’ll have to take it to the legendary Blue Goose (Tavern) to have the Stanley Cup on display there. – New Leaf Dave Bolland

As for his role: “We’ll see once we get there what the coaches ask, see what they want, if it’s the role of the third line, if it’s the role of the second line, whatever they’re going to put at me I’m going to do my best.” Meanwhile, he’ll get an early peek at the Toronto Maple Leafs training facility at the MasterCard Centre in south Etobicoke. That’s because the Mimico native had already booked the facility to hold his second annual hockey school beginning in late July.

Dave Bolland #36, of the Chicago Blackhawks, hoists the Stanley Cup after defeating the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final.

Jordan Subban off to Canucks Last Sunday’s NHL draft was the Subban family’s third. Jordan Subban, 18, was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the fourth round, #115 overall. Going into the draft he was touted as No. 55 on NHL Central Scouting’s final list of the top draft-eligible North Americans released in April. “Obviously I was hoping to go a little bit earlier, but it doesn’t matter how long you wait. I’ve waited 18 years for this day,” Subban said in an interview on NHL.com. “I’m just ecstatic that I’ve been given this opportunity to be part of an NHL organization. Being a Canadian team is the cherry on top.” His 24-year-old brother, P.K., of the Montreal Canadiens, was selected in round two, #43 overall in 2007, rising from 102nd in the final predraft rankings. Malcolm Subban was drafted last year in the first round, #24 overall by the Boston Bruins. He was the top ranked junior going into that draft. Their father is a longtime principal with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), the last school year with Claireville Junior School in Etobicoke.

Businesses’ help sought by Zero Gun Violence Movement MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Businesses – and everybody else in Toronto – must do more for youth at risk of criminal involvement if the city hopes to see a summer without shootings, says a new coalition called Zero Gun Violence Movement. Groups concerned with violence in Toronto, where 12 lives were cut short by guns already this year, announced a 90-day antigun violence campaign recently in Scarborough. Unfortunately, word came to the organizers that a man in his 20s on Danforth Avenue was being rushed to a trauma centre after being shot multiple times. “We didn’t even finish closing down the launch,” Louis March of the African Canadian Heritage Association recalled in an interview last week. And the next day, a 19-year-old was shot at Midland and Lawrence

avenues about a block from where the Movement’s press conference was held at Redemption and Reintegration Services, an

agency providing training and support for people coming out of the justice system. Both men were seriously

wounded but expected to survive. The two incidents just show “we have a lot more work to do,” said March,

who has been doing antiviolence work since the city’s infamous Summer of the Gun in 2005. That string of shootings led to the creation of the province’s Youth Challenge Fund and to city and United Way investments in “priority neighbourhoods” recognized to lack resources in Toronto’s former suburbs. Often, these investments were programs to support young people or give youth a safe place to be in such neighbourhoods, but March said he’s been talking to people across Toronto who say they need more help serving youth at risk. “There’s a lot of incredible people doing a lot of incredible work out there. But is it enough?” he asked. Members of the movement want to re-engage corporate Toronto to offer more job placements, scholarships, mentoring and other programs. If companies commit to go a little beyond what

they already do, the results will be important for atrisk youth, said March. “It exposes them to a different world.” March would also like to see more collaboration and sharing between community organizations working against violence, and a fresh look at the strategies being used. The movement wants to recruit local celebrities and other high profile people – too many are on the sidelines – to join its visits to community events this summer, where members will try to generate “positive buzz” around the issue, March said. Gun violence in Toronto is like a war with many battlefields, he added, and though it won’t disappear completely this summer, the movement hopes to chip away at it.

Caribbean sights and sounds abound in Junior Carnival Parade set for July 20 at Downsview Park FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com Downsview Park was a sea of bright colours and headdresses as youngsters showed off their dance skills during the media launch of Scotiabank Junior Carnival Parade. With steel pan and Caribbean music playing in the background, children representing different mas camps entertained the crowd Tuesday and gave a glimpse of what’s to come at this year’s parade, set for Saturday, July 20 at the Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue park. The parade is part of the 46th a n n u a l S c o t i a b a n k To ro n t o Caribbean Carnival, which will run July 9 to Aug. 4. The Junior Carnival Parade was moved to Downsview Park last year from Jane Street and Finch Avenue because of traffic concerns and space limitations. It’s expected 2,500 children will take part this year. “This is exciting,” said Christine Williams, Scotiabank vice-president of Toronto East Region. “Not only does it give children a chance to participate, but it showcases their

many talents. Every year the festival continues to grow as people embrace the sights and sounds of Caribbean music.” Though the Junior Carnival Parade will once again be held at Downsview Park, the route will be different this year. Starting at 11 a.m., the parade will move west through William Baker Park and over the bridge before entering the park, ending on Carl Hall Road. Also new this year will be the Junior Calypso Showcase of young and upcoming calypso artists between the ages of eight and 18, along with a Junior Steelband Showcase. The showcases will be part of a family event following the parade and will run until 8 p.m. The public launch of Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival will take place Tuesday, July 9 at noon at Nathan Phillips Square, near Queen and Bay streets, with dancers, musicians and calypso singers. The Grand Parade will take to the streets Saturday, Aug. 3 at Exhibition Place and Lake Shore Boulevard.

Safe injection sites considered for Toronto: BOH DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto’s Board of Health will be weighing the pros and cons of setting up a safe injection site similar to the Vancouver model, and pos-

sibly asking the provincial government to fund a pilot site in Toronto. That is the recommendation from a long-awaited report by the Toronto Medical Officer of Health, supporting the implementation of so-

called supervised injection facilities in Toronto. The report is a response to Toronto’s eight-year-old drug strategy, which recommended looking into the viability of safe injection sites for heroine.

DO THE MATH. ADVERTISE IN THE NEWSPAPER.

Following the completion last year of a joint study by the University of Toronto and St. Michael’s Hospital, indicating Toronto should have at least three such sites, Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown is recommending pushing forward. Pa r k d a l e - H i g h Pa r k Councillor Gord Perks has sat on the working group looking at ways to implement such a site. At this point, there are no

recommendations as to a location for any site. “The issue for next week is not what location,” he said of the July 8 meeting of the Board of Health. “The issue is, based on the evidence, the health evidence about the community impact and the evidence about wise use of health dollars, is that now is the time to take the next step and produce a pilot site, and the provincial government should be funding it.”

The report highlights the need for a safe injection site, pointing out that addicts using dirty needles and other unsafe forms of injection are more prone to pass on the HIV virus and Hepatitis C antibody. Research found one in five people injecting drugs have used needles previously used by someone else.

How are we doing? Your feedback matters to us! Customer Support:

New life is coming to the former Arvin Meritor spark plug manufacturing site in Long Branch. Etobicoke York Community Council approved a rezoning application on Tuesday to redevelop a portion of the 3560 Lake Shore Blvd. W. property

to build a single-storey commercial building, the initial phase of a redevelopment of a broader 4.3-hectare parcel of lands at 3560, 3580 and 3600 Lake Shore Blvd. W. The redevelopment proposes multiple commercial retail tenants. The proposed anchor tenant would be The Beer Store, which would be relo-

cated from its present location on the land parcel to the Lake Shore street face. Since Arvin Meritor was demolished in 2010, the site has undergone “significant” environmental remediation, a May 27 city staff report indicated. The lands, located between Lakeshore Honda and Wakefield Canada Inc., are currently vacant.

Site will continue to host local programs >>>from page 1 Located at 30 Barrhead Cres., north of Kipling Avenue and Rexdale Boulevard, the former Rexdale Public School site has been leased out by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) to Mississauga Private School (MPS) for nearly 30 years. About two years ago, the TDSB attempted to sever part of the school site to sell, but failed amidst a flurry of community outrage. So, when MPS was given its marching orders and vacated the site late last month in anticipation of its upcoming move to a new school building, rumours again began to swirl the TDSB had sold the site off to a developer, who planned to construct public housing townhouses on the site. Both Donna Jondreau, real estate manager for the Toronto Lands Corporation – the TDSB’s arms-length body mandated to sell surplus school lands – and TDSB planning manager Andrew Gowdy also dismissed those rumours as untrue. “No, it hasn’t been sold,” Jondreau said. “(The entire site) is actually being reclaimed by the TDSB for TDSB program requirements.” Those program requirements, added Gowdy, will include: a program for adults called Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada; several programs for school-aged adolescents with attendance problems; and a Section 23 program serving students with special needs that “go beyond the service that the board’s spe-

cial education programs can provide” called TREADD. “It’s a site that we’re keeping and it will be used by the board as a multi-use learning centre,” Gowdy added, noting an existing child care centre at the former Rexdale Public School site will also remain a tenant at the school. “We have a number of these multi-use learning centre sites that are dispersed across the system and they’re good sites for adults, as well as for children in programs where the kids do better outside of a regular, traditional school.” While Gowdy said the programs hosted within the school may change in the coming years, there are no plans to sell the school – either now, or in the foreseeable future. “It’s a site that we call a core holding site – a site that we want to keep in our portfolio for these types of programs, as well as just to provide a good distribution of sites across the city that are a reasonable distance from each other,” he added. Meanwhile, MPS and its nearly 300 JK to Grade 12 students are looking forward to a fresh start at their new, custom-built school campus at 140 Queen’s Plate Dr. (at the northeast corner of Hwy. 27 and Rexdale Blvd.), said school director Gabrielle Bush. Once complete, the new school building will feature: a bigger school library and resource centre; state-ofthe-art computer and science labs; a full-size double gym and training facility; a

regulation-size soccer field and a softball diamond; a “purpose-built” performance arts auditorium; a music room/studio with individual practice rooms; a “welcoming and spacious” eat-in cafeteria providing students with community space; and a bus loading and student drop-off safety zone. As construction continues on that site, Bush said the school has taken up temporary residence on City View Drive (at Dixon Road and Hwy. 27) – with an anticipated move-in date into their new building sometime in the spring. “It’s going to be spectacular,” she said. “Being one of the only private schools in Etobicoke, especially at the high school level, I think it’s going to serve the community well.” The site of the new school, located on a former apple orchard, has also spurred a school name change – from MPS Etobicoke to Newton’s Grove School, Bush added. “To be Mississauga Private School in Etobicoke has been so confusing to people,” she said. “So we went through a long rebranding process and Newton’s Grove is something that we came up with that talks about Sir Isaac Newton and inspiration and high standards and creative thinking. It just seems to be a really great symbol for us. We’re not going to be defined by our location, we’re going to be bigger than that.”

Etobicoke

Snack fast facts Snacking is part of a healthy lifestyle. Snacks can keep people energized and provide important nutrients if chosen wisely. w Reach for snacks that contain at least two of the food groups. w Learn which nutrient-dense snacks are between 100 to 200 calories. Some choices include: a highfibre granola bar, 1/4 cup of trail mix or 1/2 bag of light popcorn. w Manage portion size. Snacks shouldn’t “fill you up,” they should ensure you’re “not hungry.” For example, 25 almonds is a snack under 200 calories; however a 1/2 cup of almonds could be considered a meal. w Snack when you’re hungry. When mid-afternoon hits and you need to take a break, stretch, go for a walk and drink some water. People often mistake thirst for hunger. w Change up your snacks. w Plan ahead so you have healthy options wherever you go. w If you choose packaged items, make sure you read the label. w Tuna with crackers, dried fruit and milk pudding are good snacks.
