Tapping into street culture to help city’s homeless youth Cover Me Urban fundraiser to feature street art, music and food

Resident reports fraudulent call TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Youth Without Shelter’s (YWS) new Cover Me Urban fundraising event is all about tapping into Toronto’s street culture – merging fashion, hip hop, art, dance, music, street food and drink under one roof. The “unique and interactive” fundraiser on Wednesday, April 2 will see The Glass Factory – located at 99 Sudbury St. in the Liberty Village area – divided up and transformed into four different neighbourhoods: Rexdale, Yonge/Dundas, Queen West and The Beaches. “In each area there will be a vibe and decor that reflects each of those neighbourhoods. And in each neighbourhood there will be food stations and different activities that range from a live graffiti canvas being painted, to fantasy tattoos, to a photo booth, to a performance by the UNITY break dancers, and a fashion component with live models in each neighbourhood,” said Judy Leroux, YWS’s

Don’t trust solicitors asking to inspect your furnace: OPA

Ontario Power Authority (OPA) officials are sounding the alarm after an Etobicoke resident reported she received a solicitation call to inspect her furnace from someone purporting to be with the authority. The OPA co-ordinates province-wide conservation efforts, plans the electricity system long-term and contracts for clean electricity sources. The authority does not inspect residents’ heating or cooling systems or solicit participation in its programs by phone or at the door, a spokesperson said Tuesday.

Take a stand, power down for Earth Hour A

n hour of darkness. That’s what the annual Earth Hour event calls for, this year on Saturday, March 29 between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. Organized by the World Wildlife Fund, the event encourages residents and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol of support for the planet. It is a worldwide event, which, according to organizers, has participation from more than 7,000 cities and towns in 154 countries worldwide. But the concept isn’t front of mind for all Torontonians. In the city last year, according to Toronto Hydro, there was a seven per cent reduction in energy use. In 2009, the city our view experienced a 15 per cent reduction in energy use. So what’s hapCommunities pening? For symbolism to have hosting events strength, there needs to be meamomentum. There has for Earth Hour surable to be growth. If there isn’t, the impact of the overall message – however powerful it may be – is blunted. One way of ensuring that momentum takes place is seeing new and interesting ways of integrating the event into community life. We’re encouraged, for example, that some pockets of the community build a neighbourhood gathering around Earth Hour. Last year, there was an outdoor concert in Roncesvalles Village. This year, in Etobicoke, there’s a concert at Islington United Church celebrating the 20th anniversary of the church’s organ. In North York, the Yonge-Sheppard neighbourhood will once again have its annual Earth Hour community walk. It’s a fine idea to consider joining a local Earth Hour event. So, too, is using our creativity to come up with our own localized Earth Hour events. Either way, you have people getting together, united in a common cause. Everyone can appreciate the environmental and cost benefits of saving energy. It’s great that Earth Hour can help bring that message to the forefront. Ideally, respect for the environment and energy conservation is a constant, front-of-mind proposition – not just for one hour in a year. For some, Earth Hour is a place to start. For others it’s one simple activity in an ever-mindful drive to preserve the environment.

Mayoral fringe candidate raises important question about taxes M ayoral races are a long haul in Toronto – and that leaves plenty of room for little epiphanies. On Monday, one of those showed up to file papers at city hall – Ari Goldkind, a 40-year-old criminal defence lawyer. He made some headlines saying that he has a nose for B.S. and referring to the current mayor as Sideshow Rob. If past experience is any indication, an ambitious but untested outsider like Goldkind will go exactly nowhere in this race. Goldkind is a fringe candidate. But it’s rude not to ask what ideas even a fringe candidate brings to the table, and so that’s what I did. He started out sounding a bit like David Soknacki and Olivia Chow, advocating a return to the LRT in Scarborough over the council-approved

david nickle the city

subway. And then he kind of sounded like Soknacki on the land transfer tax, but it turned out I’d misunderstood when I thought he said that exemptions to the tax should go to more lower-priced houses and purchasers of homes worth more than $1.1 million should pay more. What Goldkind actually wanted to see was the land transfer tax increased on million-dollar homes, and everybody else pay the same. That, along with higher property taxes, would pay for repairs and improvements of Toronto’s public housing. Goldkind may throw around words like B.S. pretty freely, but for him, and really only him, taxes

are not a dirty word. After we spoke, it struck me: higher taxes shouldn’t be a de facto taboo, as they’ve become. Because while Goldkind might not have a hope at winning the election, if he actually pulled it off, his program of tax-and-spend government would probably make life a lot better here and drive almost no one from their homes. Taxes are low in Toronto – lower than elsewhere – and yet services are slipping. Subways are crowded and buildings are crumbling and according to this year’s Ombudsman’s Annual Report, even basic customer service isn’t sustainable. As this year’s budget debate wrapped up, City Manager Joe Pennachetti laid it bare, that property taxes will practically have to rise more dramatically in coming years than they

have in the past, just to maintain status quo. Toronto is circling the drain. And yet, the collection of miserly landholders that make up Toronto will almost certainly shuffle out and cast their vote for one of five or so A-list mayoral candidates with well-known resumes and no stomach for pitching the larger-scale tax hikes the city needs to pull out of its spin. Now, I can’t say that anybody should go to vote for the unknown criminal defence lawyer who just joined the long list of fringe mayoral candidates. But maybe it’s time that we shook our heads and stopped believing that we can have a great or even decent future, paying only a little more than we did in the past.

MY NISSAN

It’s fascinating to hear about Etobicoke’s history olden days”. I find it fascinating to hear about the early years and what the streets looked like and how the names came about. Please keep up these articles. Ursula Ambury

Be aware of phone scam artist On Google, many people had written about this scam artist and how he would compromise your computer should you ever follow his directions. So if anyone phones you with a story like that, hang up.

To the editor: Re: ‘Fiscal responsibility is why people like Mayor Rob Ford, reader says,’ Opinion, March 13 Reader Hubert Hicks thinks fiscal responsibility is why people like Mayor Rob Ford. In the last election voters were mad at the previous administration and were easily seduced into the gravy train mantra that Ford used relentlessly in his mayoral campaign, even while Torontonians enjoyed lower taxes than all of our surrounding municipalities. So, we were mad and we are cheap. In due course we would find out there was no gravy train. Yes, some tweaking happened, but not in the amount that justified Ford’s savvy mantra. The reader said he voted for Ford’s agenda and not his disgraceful behaviour, which was not apparent to him at that time.

I am not so willing to excuse this reader’s lack of attention. While Ford was a city councillor, he regularly behaved as a lone man, pitting himself against the other councillors. It was clear he lacked the powers of persuasion and reason to influence others to his ideas. And yet we voted this lone man to the position of mayor, a position that allows him only one vote on council and therefore requires the skill of explaining himself in some depth to council. The mayor prides himself on sticking up for the little guy, casting disparaging comments on the so-called elites, while he himself enjoys a personal wealth in the millions. The ‘little guy’ should be insulted. The mayor associates with known criminals and tries to use his office to support those in front of

the courts. He pushes for subways to Scarborough, fails to find the funding and then howls when council wants to increase taxes to support his subways, accusing them of reckless spending. And I have not even mentioned the mayor’s homophobia that has alienated organizers of Toronto’s hugely successful Pride Day Parade, and strained relations with our current premier. Now this reader might still want to dismiss all of this on the altar of apparent fiscal responsibility, but I would argue that Ford’s immaturity, lack of selfdiscipline, divisiveness, apparent association with criminals and inability to respectfully communicate, make him wholly unsuitable to implement any kind of platform, fiscal responsibility or otherwise. He is totally out of his depth. Myrna Markovich

Victor Kwong said officers responded to the address after receiving 911 reports that a group of people were assaulting a man, and that when they arrived on the scene, they found the victim suffering apparent stab wounds. MacLean was rushed to hospital by Toronto EMS via an emergency run, but was pronounced dead shortly after 10 p.m. People arrested Following the stabbing, Kwong said police were seeking out four suspects in connection with MacLean’s stabbing – three of whom have since been arrested, and another who is still outstanding.

Officer cleared in death of woman who fell from Dixon Road apartment A Toronto police officer has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in connection to the death of a 22-year-old woman who plunged from the 25th floor of her Dixon Road apartment in January, the province’s police watchdog said in a release issued Friday, March 14. “In my view, there are no grounds to believe that the subject officer committed a criminal offence in relation to the woman’s death,” Tony Loparco, director of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), said in the statement. “There can be no doubt that the woman’s death was a premeditated act on her part.” Police from 23 Division responded

to 330 Dixon Rd. Wednesday, Jan. 8 at around 1:06 p.m., shortly after receiving a 911 call from the young woman indicating she intended to commit suicide. Witness needed Several officers, along with Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel, were dispatched to the 25th floor and as they approached the door to the woman’s unit, they found it unlocked and semi-open. Upon entering, the officers saw the woman standing on the outside of the balcony railing. As the subject officer approached the woman, he reported she said

“thank you for coming, I needed a witness” and then “goodbye” as she jumped off the edge of the balcony to her death. Following the incident, the SIU – a provincial agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault – assigned four investigators and two forensic investigators. As part of the investigation, the SIU interviewed eight witness officers and four civilian witnesses. The subject officer also consented to an interview and provided the SIU with a copy of his duty notes. The subject officer’s account of his brief interaction with the victim

was corroborated by two witness officers, who heard the subject officer talking with the woman and then saw her fall back from the balcony as he approached. Two EMS attendants, who were positioned near the unit’s doorway, also provided information to say they saw the woman standing on the outside of the balcony railing when they arrived at the scene. During the course of the investigation, SIU investigators also discovered a suicide statement left by the woman in her apartment on the day of the incident. The statement indicated the woman’s ultimate intention and served as a form of will. In his state-

ment clearing the subject officer and his colleagues of any criminal offence, Loparco said none of the officers present contributed to the woman’s death in a criminal manner “by their actions or by failing to act in a timely fashion to save her.” “There is nothing in the circumstances that he could have done to prevent her jumping, and I have concluded there is no criminal liability, by acts or omissions, in relation to any other officer from the Toronto Police Service,” Loparco said. – Cynthia Reason

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 26th at 4:00pm THE FIRST 100 PEOPLE ARE GUARANTEED AN AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO

YWS fundraising event rebranded to showcase youth and city life >>>from page 1 This year’s Cover Me Urban event is a newly revamped and rebranded version of an annual YWS fundraiser hosted for the last four years by Stratafly – a local marketing analytics and print media agency and longtime YWS supporter. Dave Mathews, Stratafly’s managing director, said the agency and its parent company, Prospect Media, began supporting YWS about seven years ago through internal company fundraising efforts, and has since grown that support exponentially. “Then we took it to the next level, deciding to host an event to support YWS,” he said, referring to Stratafly’s annual fundraiser at the Gladstone Hotel. This year, however, YWS and Stratafly decided to join forces in hosting the event – changing venues and rebranding the event as Cover Me Urban.

“We’re really focused this year on making the theme more in line with what YWS is all about – so taking it to the streets, basically, and focusing it on the neighbourhoods around our city,” Mathews said. “We really want to show what the city has to offer, which incorporates everything from fashion, to art, to dance, to food, to you name it.” Tickets to Cover Me Urban are $75, and include all food and drink – a stellar deal, given the roster of chefs lined up to participate. Introducing attendees to their version of “wrapped” street foods will be Chef Mick Elliot of Liaison College of Culinary Arts (with support from Medium Rare), Chef Tony Fernandes of the Crown Plaza Toronto Airport, as well as representatives from Aura by Cashew and Clive, El Cantrin, Yorkshire Pudding, and sweet treats from Gelato Fresco and More Than Pies.

Beverages will be supplied by AROMA Coffee, Mill St. Brewery and Oyster Bay Wine. Also getting in on the culinary action will be a team of youth from YWS, who will be helping man one of the food stations alongside Art Tsang, YWS’s planning and evaluation manager, Leroux said. Having the youth themselves involved in the fundraiser for the last four years, Mathews said, has proven a moving experience for all involved. “Each year we’ve had one or two youth come and share with us what circumstances they’ve faced and how YWS has been there to support them and help keep them on the right track – and that’s really what spoke to us,” he said. “Hearing those stories, let me tell you, always has the crowd choked up.”

TRANSIT

Pan Am road network proposed RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com The provincial government is planning to establish a special road network to transport athletes competing in the 2015 Toronto Pan American Games. Introduced by Ontario Tourism Minister Michael Chan, the proposal would see a coordinated system of priority lanes to form a Games Route Network (GRN) linking venues and training facilities in the downtown core and throughout Southern Ontario. According to the plan, some 770 kilometres of lanes would be designated as High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes – including 150 kilometres in the Greater Toronto Area – and located on major roadways like the QEW, Gardiner Expressway, the Don Valley Parkway, Lake Shore Boulevard and the 400series highways. They would be intended for use by Games personnel,

athletes, media and public transit and restricted to single-occupancy vehicles before, during and after the Pan Am and Parapan American Games. Speaking at a press conference last Friday, Chan said Games organizers were confident traffic levels during the Games could be reduced by as much as 20 per cent locally – if people commit to the carpooling measures, make use of public transit and take alternate routes to get around. “We are very confident achieving this 20 per cent target is attainable,� Chan told reporters, saying the reduction would be comparable to that achieved during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games and the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The plan will be incorporated in the Games’ overall transportation budget, estimated to be $75-90 million, and will also require the completion of the Union Pearson Express air rail link

which promises express travel between Pearson International Airport and Union Station. Metrolinx is building the project on behalf of the province and has stated repeatedly it will be completed before the Games scheduled start in July of 2015. The plan, which was posted online, also calls for some road closures and parking restrictions, as well as turn restrictions at certain points along the GRN during the Games for road races and other street events. In addition, Games attendees will be able to use their admission tickets to ride GO Transit and TTC as well as other local transit agencies without paying an additional fare. The 2015 Pan Am Games are scheduled to run from July 10 to 26 followed by the Parapan Games from Aug. 7 to 15.

Dixon family hosted barn-raising social ‘bee’ Entire community would assist, and feast

N

eighbourhood “bees” have always been part of Ontario’s agricultural heritage, and Etobicoke was no exception. They were survival strategies at a time when many tasks required more hands than one family could supply on their own. Bees were held for harvesting, threshing grain, pulling flax, clearing forests, making quilts and, of

denise harris history corner course, raising barns. Building a large frame barn required as many as 60 to 100 men to lift the bent frames into place. The whole community would anticipate a bee as a major social event, with the women supplying an enor-

mous feast after the men’s labours. In July 1908, Oliver and Elizabeth Dixon hosted a bee to raise a large new barn on their 100-acre farm on the southwest corner of Martin Grove and Dixon roads. In this photo (below), erection of the bent frames has been completed, and the group is ready for the fun part – dinner and socializing. Oliver was the grandson of James Dixon, who had emigrated from England to Canada prior to 1827 and settled in Etobicoke. James purchased the property shown in these photos in 1836. His son Richard inherited the lot in 1860, and Richard left it to his son Oliver in 1882. Thomas, another of James’ sons, built a house that still stands at 1671 Kipling Ave., south of Dixon Road. Jonathan, a third son, owned a lot just north of

Dixon Road. Many of James’ descendants farmed along Dixon Road until the postwar development boom replaced farms with suburbia.

Dixon Road was named after this early Etobicoke family, a reminder of the area’s once-thriving agricultural history.

The OPA and MPP Donna Cansfield caution residents to be wary of solicitors who call by phone or come to the door asking to inspect the furnace.

‘There’s a larger issue of criminality here’ says MPP Cansfield >>>from page 1 Home programs. Our programs do not require door-to-door sales or calls, or the inspection of any heating and cooling equipment.” Etobicoke Centre MPP Donna Cansfield’s office confirmed a constituent recently called her office to report the solicitation call. Cansfield’s office then contacted the OPA. The three-term Liberal MPP said Wednesday she has received a solicitation call at her door to inspect her furnace. “I had someone actually come to my door about my furnace who claimed to represent the Ontario government,” she said. “I found that fascinating, obviously. When I started to grill him, he took off.” Cansfield said she repeatedly cautions her constituents to be on the lookout for fraud and misrepresentation whenever they receive a solicitation call or knock on their door. Her advice? Ask the solicitor for a phone number. Then call Enbridge, the OPA, Toronto Hydro or whichever company the person claims to represent and inquire about the legitimacy of the call or knock at the door. “This threat is constantly there,” Cansfield said. “Either they’re interested in identity theft or in duping seniors. My concern is that they come in to case the joint. Some people live on their own. They come in and unlock the windows

or the back door when someone’s not looking. “People are being duped with inappropriate identification. But there’s a larger issue of criminality here.” Cansfield said she has discussed the issue of fraudulent misrepresentation with Toronto police superintendents at 22 Division: “The CPLC (Community Police Liaison Committee) folks are awesome about getting out and getting the word out about this.” OPA’s Cannella urged residents to visit OPA’s website at bit.ly/1qQfX9l to learn about its residential heating and cooling incentives, eligibility requirements and to find a participating contractor. Residents do not pay a fee to participate in any of OPA’s home energy conservation programs. Residents can receive as much as $650 in incentives through OPA’s programs if they purchase and install an eligible furnace or Central Air Conditioner. The OPA directly contacts companies that make solicitation calls in its name, authority spokesperson Mary Bernard said. “We only notify the police when we are aware of any criminal or fraudulent activity,” she said. “If we can find out the name of the company making the calls, we follow up with the company and tell them to stop.”

If someone contacts you claiming to be OPA, report it to info@powerauthority.on.ca or 1-877-797-9473.

COMMUNITY

Etobicoke neighbourhoods up for priority status DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto’s community development and recreation committee has approved a new way to designate priority neighbourhoods – one that will shift resources through communities across the city. The policy change must still be approved by Toronto council when it meets in April. But if it goes ahead, it will mean the total number will increase to 31 from the current 22, including four from Etobicoke: • Elms-Old Rexdale; ThistletownBeaumond Heights; Kingsview Village-The Westway; and Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown. The new neighbourhoods are eligible for additional programs and capital funding based on a new metric, called a “Neighbourhood Equity Score.” It looks at various categories including unemployment levels, education level, voting rates, physical surroundings and health levels. The revision is the first major one

... there’s no evidence that any of these investments have done anything to reduce crime. – Counc. Denzil Minnan-Wong

since 2005, when the city instituted the priority neighbourhood system following a rash of shootings. Don Valley East Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong came to the Monday, March 17 committee meeting skeptical about the new system. He pointed out the designation of at-risk neighbourhoods for additional resources doesn’t have any way to measure the success of investments. “Previously or up until now there haven’t been any measurements and you can’t improve what you can’t measure,” he said. “We started this out on assumptions that weren’t incredibly clear at the time. This all started with the Jane Creba shooting. There was some hope that with this crime would go

down. Well there’s no evidence that any of these investments have done anything to reduce crime.” Jane, an innocent bystander, was killed during a gang-related shooting on Boxing Day 2005 while out shopping near the Eaton Centre. Six others were wounded. Minnan-Wong, who is not a member of the committee, said he intended to make motions when the matter comes before council. Other councillors on the committee were more supportive of moving forward. “How can we fully track how many lives we saved?” said St. Paul’s Councillor Josh Matlow. “How many people can we put on paper saying how we’ve set them back on track? What we do know is that there are a number of different investments that need to be made. We know we need to respect opportunities in communities.” Committee Chair Anthony Perruzza, who represents the JaneFinch community, took issue with the fact the neighbourhood had

scored so low, and was tarred with headlines labelling it the least liveable neighbourhood in Toronto. “Why some editor in some dark room somewhere would concoct such a headline based on this kind of a study, and say to everybody this is the worst place in the city (I don’t know),” Perruzza said. Toronto-Danforth Councillor Paula Fletcher, however, pointed out many of the neighbourhoods – Jane-Finch included – were places with high concentration of public housing the province downloaded to the city. “It’s a no-brainer that many of the communities we’re talking about today are social housing communities,” Fletcher said. “We get pushback from people saying ‘we don’t want our communities labelled.’ Well the province did a really good job in making our communities label-able. If that’s a word.”

OF MIND…

D

o you suffer from pain, numbness, tingling, burning, or aching in your shoulder, arms or hands? Do your hands get stiff, cold, swollen, weak, or clumsy? Most neck, shoulder, arm and hand pain result from overexerting weak muscles in these areas, years of poor posture, improper lifting techniques, and structural imbalances caused by excess poundage all contribute to the injury. Until recently, there were few effective treatment options. One was to do nothing and hope that it would go away. Another was the use anti-inflammatory medication and hand splints. And finally there was surgery. Tennis Elbow, Tendonitis, Bursitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are usually the result of a compression of the nerves extending from the lower neck down to the fingers. Pain is usually experienced in the neck or shoulders. It is often a severe pain, but can also be experienced as numbness or tingling in the wrist and fingers. The pain can sometimes be felt in the head, chest and between the shoulders. Eventually arthritic changes take place in these areas. How can we help? To determine whether you are a candidate for care, we welcome you to call our office for a free initial evaluation. Natural holistic care gets to the root of the problem by correcting the cause of the pressure on the nerve. Dr. Ng applies his individual skills and knowledge to make an accurate diagnosis and administer the right treatment that will get the best result for each patient.

Downton Abbey-themed costume exhibit at Spadina Museum Exhibit features 20 costumes worn by show characters ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com The dinner dress and three-piece suits from the television show Downton Abbey are more than just the fashions of the 1920s, they also tell the story of social transformation here in Toronto. Spadina Museum is hosting the Canadian premiere of the Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey exhibit running through to April 13, featuring 20 costumes worn by the characters from the critically acclaimed period drama. “The costumes trace the huge changes that happened in the world because of the impact of World War One,” said Karen Black, the manager of the city’s 10 historic site museums. “Toronto was very much a part of that changing world view.” The costumes from the first three

The Spadina Museum is hosting the exhibit Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey until April 13. Fans of the show can head down to see 20 costumes worn by the characters from the critically acclaimed period drama.

seasons have been borrowed from Cosprop, Ltd., the London-based costume house that designs and creates the clothing.

You paid how much!? #ShouldaUsedToronto

In partnership with

On display in the upper rooms of the historic home, the costumes are identified by character and season, and labels feature photographs of cast members wearing the exhibited costumes. The tour takes visitors

through the museum’s family and servants’ spaces and links the characters and events from the TV show to real Toronto history. “The exhibit also includes dresses and accessories from our own artifact

collection that were worn in this city during that Downton Abbey period,” Black said. Black explained that Spadina Museum focuses on the period in Toronto between the two world wars and through this exhibit they are trying to tie the story of Toronto into the larger global story. Three generations of Toronto’s Austin family lived in the home that is now the Spadina Museum from 1866 until the house became a museum in the 1980s. “The Austins were not as aristocratic as the Crawly family of Downton Abbey, but they did face many of the same challenges including a shell shocked son returning from the First World War, the changing role of women, the new technology: everything from radio to the automobile and the telephone,” Black said. Tickets, which are nearly sold out at $25/$35 per person, are available at spadinamuseum.streamintickets. com

These two quick-sequence photos show Marty Birch of the Dark Team unleashed his shot on Whites goaltender Eric Niskanen and then looked back to see it pop back out of the net.

Little Evoque has big attributes When Land Rover showed the LRX Concept in 2008 at the auto show in Detroit, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take it seriously. I was wrong. The doors at the Detroit show were barely closed before Range Rover got a reputed 20,000 hand raisers for the CUV that would be labelled the Evoque. Such was its impact, and popularity, that it was named as the North American Truck of the Year in Detroit in 2012. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to look very far to see automakers falling over themselves to put luxury, compact crossovers on the market. Range Rover also cleverly offers the Evoque in a five-door or a three-door coupe format. The five-door comes in six trim levels from $47,695-$61,295 while the coupe has four trim levels from $53,295-$62,395. Tested here is the five-door Dynamic model starting at $60,895 with options like metallic red paint, heated rear seats, and 19-inch Sparkle Finish wheels for a total of $67,020 not including a $1,470 shipping fee. While the Evoque is a compact pack-

age aimed at primarily urban dwellers who may never go off road on anything more challenging that a cottage country laneway, it is more than capable of doing what Range Rover is known for â&#x20AC;&#x201C; conquering any kind of terrain. For instance, it can wade across a river with a depth of up to 500 mm (19.7 in) with an approach angle of 25 degrees and departure angle of 33 degrees. What that means to you is Evoque can make it over boulders if necessary. All this can be selected by a simple rocker switch setup on the centre console using icons marked with normal, snow and mud, rocky terrain and desert. Evoqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Active Driveline system with active differentials and torque vectoring is standard. It is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;on demandâ&#x20AC;? four-wheel drive system, which lessens driveline drag by decoupling the four-wheel drive system during normal driving at speeds above 35 km/h. This system can monitor vehicle dynamics and automatically activate four-wheel drive within 300 milliseconds if necessary. The Active Driveline factors in Active

Torque Biasing with an electronically controlled differential to distribute torque between the rear wheels, optimises traction and stability. Torque Vectoring is also a part of the system and can send torque back and forth between all four wheels depending on the level of grip to help when the Evoque is under steering. Added available features for 2014 include: Park Exit (to automatically exit parallel parking slots); Perpendicular Park; Adaptive Cruise Control (with Queue Assist, Forward Alert and Intelligent Emergency Braking); Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection (to warn drivers of oncoming traffic). Power continues to be a turbo 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder engine running on premium fuel and producing 240 hp and 250 lb/ft of torque. The Evoque is one of the first in the premium CVU segment to use a nine-speed automatic transmission. Top speed is electronically limited to 217 km/h (135 mph) with a 0-100 km acceleration time of 7.6 seconds. Fuel consumption for the five-

door and three-door coupe is 9.9/6.6/8.4L/100 km (29/43/34 mpg) city/highway/combined. How they fit the engine, trans and differentials within a 2,600 mm (104.8 in) wheelbase is beyond me, but kudos to the engineers for making all this happen. In operation, the nine-speed is more like a CVT in that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel any gear changing at all. But unlike a CVT, there is none of the dreading rubber-

banding feeling. The 2015 Evoque clearly stands out in the increasing crowded premium compact CUV segment with all the attributes one expects but with one touch of uniqueness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Britishnessâ&#x20AC;? that somehow makes it a treat to be in and drive. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an option, but heritage which, to me, means a lot. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jim Robinson Metroland Media

the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe has stunning performance and handling equaling its Euro competitors, but at up to half the price.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to spring into

a Stingray Enough of winter! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to think about spring â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and what better way than a 2014 Corvette Z51 Stingray Coupe in Velocity Yellow and a seven-speed rev matching manual transmission. There are two models â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the base Stingray and the Z51. Each model has three trim levels, 1LT, 2Lt and 3LT. The trim pricing range of the base car is $52,745-$61,200 and $56,520-$64,975 on the Z51. What makes it a Z51 is the $8,455 addition of a ton of extras that include: manual transmission performance gear ratios, electronic limited-slip differential and transmission cooling systems, heavyduty engine cooling dry-sump oil system, uprated shocks, springs and stabilizer bars, larger front brake rotors with black calipers, slotted brake rotors, Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP summer-only tires, larger 19x8.50-inch front and 20x10-inch rear five-spoke silver-painted aluminum wheels and the Aero Package that reduces lift for high-speed stability. The as tested price of the Z51 Stingray Coupe was $74,520 that included a total of $17,900 in options (including the Z51 package) but not the $1,700 shipping fee. So what do you get for that kind of money? The quick answer is quite a lot when you compare it to, say, the Porsche 911 S with a seven-speed manual with 55 hp less priced at $112,900. The 2014 Corvette comes with a 6.2-litre direct injection V8 running on regular fuel (premium recommended) and producing 455 hp and 460 lb/ft of torque. If you bolt on the $1,255 Dual Mode performance exhaust system, it increases power to 460 hp and 465 lb/ft. Fuel rating is listed at 12.2/6.9L/100 km (23/41 mpg) city/highway but I never even came close to those numbers. The seven-speed manual is standard with a sixspeed automatic optional. I feel sorry for the increasing number of people who will never learn to use a manual and, thus, never know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to enjoy the exhilaration. Heightening the experience is the manualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stan-

dard Active Rev Match that gives the engine a little â&#x20AC;&#x153;blipâ&#x20AC;? of power during shifts that matches the engine and transmission revolutions for smooth engagement along with the aural enjoyment of hearing the Stingray do its thing. Drive is to the rear wheels where the rear electronic limited slip diff and all the Z51 handling stuff really comes in handy. If there is any doubt the Stingray was meant for drivers, that stops the moment you slip into the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat where you are met with a dizzying array of performance interfaces. Just a few are: main gauge cluster configuration, electronic throttle control, active fuel management, active handling and traction control, launch control, steering feel and Performance Traction Management. It all begins with the rotary Driver Mode Selector on the centre console. The selector has five modes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track. It can handle up to 12 scenarios with the information instantly shown on the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LCD screen. For instance, you can set the exhaust for Eco, Tour, Sport or Track depending on your inclination. If you have the Z51 and optional ($1,855) Magnetic Select Ride Control like the Stingray tested here, you can use the selection to further set up torque and brakes for five different track settings. The Stingray has so much going for it, but perhaps, the best part is startup when all those 455 horses bellow into life with a low rumble best heard inside a garage to amplify the effect. Go into reverse and you pull down and all the way to the right where you can feel there are big gears at the other end of the shifter. In first you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a lot of throttle to get moving, but too little can cause the engine to stumble while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still cold. After a while, the right amount of push with the right foot and let up with the left foot comes naturally. You can watch the huge tach in the LCD screen, but the sound of the engine and exhaust tells you all you need to know. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jim Robinson Metroland Media

Gathered at the Wallace home in Etobicoke, Osler’s Ryan Pennie (left) discusses the bright future of Etobicoke General with (l-r) musician Kim Mitchell, Osler Foundation’s Dyanne Ostrander and Osler President & CEO Matt Anderson.

EGH gets support from Kim Mitchell and community Canadian rocker Kim Mitchell recently joined a group of more than 50 prominent families, business people, hospital representatives, physicians and community leaders to raise awareness of and support for Etobicoke General Hospital’s redevelopment initiatives. Ros-Bay President David Wallace and his wife, Kate, hosted the event at their home. Hospital leaders presented plans for Etobicoke General’s new wing and updated guests on the fundraising status for the community share of the project. Larger gifts received in the past year include a $3-million pledge from the hospital’s volunteer association. The hospital’s estimated $200- to $250-million redevelopment will construct a new four-storey wing with more than 217,000 square feet, including: n a larger, state-of-the-art emergency department to support best practices in emergency care; n an ICU/CCU four times larger than its current space. Patient rooms

filled with natural light will be triple the size to provide privacy and accommodate family members; n a maternal newborn unit with birthing suites, an outpatient obstetrics and gynecology clinic and specialized Level II nursery; n an outpatient area featuring procedure and operating rooms, pre- and post-op preparation and recovery areas, a laboratory and dedicated clinic space, including cardiac and fracture clinics. The expansion will also include a new main entrance, new retail and registration areas and an upgraded lobby, in addition to expanded parking and more roadways to make the building more accessible, hospital officials reported. Food also recently got an overhaul at Etobicoke General. Last fall, the hospital’s cafeteria and Tim Hortons underwent renovations, resulting in more choice, longer hours and a new Subway franchise.

Rexdale Community Health Centre holds consultation on palliative care services and info TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Rexdale’s culturally diverse seniors and newcomers to Canada don’t know the term “palliative care” or where to access services unless a family member has received that care. “The word ‘palliative’ means nothing to them. It’s a western word,” explained Althea Martin-Risden, director of health promotion with Rexdale Community Health Centre. “The community is so diverse. That’s why information is so important to them. Part of our goal today is to present them information so they can make the best possible decision when they need to.” That was residents’ overwhelming feedback Monday to Rexdale Community Health Centre, during a community consultation held to gauge Rexdale’s ethnocultural seniors and newcomers awareness of palliative services, the relevance of existing services to them, and what services would benefit them. Dorothy Ley Hospice and Bethell Hospice in Inglewood, Ont. partnered on the event. Approximately 100 Rexdale residents attended Monday’s consultation, with translation provided in Tamil, Italian, Spanish and Punjabi. A second consultation session held Tuesday, also at Royal Celebrations Banquet Hall, expected residents from five different language groups: Somali, Tamil, Afghan, Spanish and west African languages. The Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) funded the consultation. The LHIN plans, integrates, funds and manages local health-care services. “We work with many community partners and health service providers, like Rexdale Community Health Centre, to determine the health service priorities of our local

communities,” Central West LHIN CEO Scott McLeod told residents. “We also listen very carefully to our local residents, like all of you here today, because we believe that the health needs of our local communities are best understood by those who live in them,” he said. Etobicoke-based Dorothy Ley Hospice seeks to break down the stereotype that hospice palliative care is strictly for people who are dying, explained Cher Curshen, Dorothy Ley’s integrative wellness care co-ordinator. “Palliative care can serve someone with a life-limiting illness for 15 years. It doesn’t mean dying tomorrow,” she said. Dorothy Ley staff participated in the consultation to better understand the cultural and religious needs of diverse communities. “We want to know how to help people. We want to understand how to support them culturally,” Curshen said. Some people’s belief system requires a deceased person’s body not be moved for a period of time after death. Other beliefs can include having a family member wash the body of a person who has died. Information on palliative care in their languages, a place to call for further information, involvement of family in care, cooking and cleaning

support, religious music and prayer, and support for family caregivers were the most-cited needs among Rexdale residents who attended Monday’s palliative care consultation. Tamil residents spoke specifically of a desire for prayer, religious observance and music before death. “They wanted to be among relatives. They spoke of needing spiritual services, their own music, preferably religious music, to help them prepare to die peacefully and to eliminate the fear of death,” said facilitator Teresa Menezes. Residents who hadn’t experienced loss “wanted to cling to life even if it was one day or one hour,” reported facilitator Carmel Quinlivan-Hopkins. “There are a lot of supports in the community, but people don’t know about them,” she said in an interview. “There is a lot of public health money available, but not enough education out there.” Many residents also assumed a cost would be involved in hospice palliative care, which is not the case. “We’re the best-kept secret in North America,” she said.
