Father Henry Carr students welcomed Cardinal Thomas Collins into their religion classroom Tuesday morning via Skype from Rome, where the Archbishop of Toronto remains after participating in the papal conclave last week. The 15-minute teleconference took place shortly after Collins attended the inaugural mass of Pope Francis – formerly Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Buenos Aires – following his election to the head of the Catholic church last Wednesday, March 13. Miles Fernandes, Father Henry Carr’s school chaplain, called the experience “wonderful.” “Our students are the future of our church, so getting them involved in this process is something which can only be positive,” he said. “We’re really grateful for this opportunity to speak to Cardinal Collins – he’s a very approachable person, so he gels with the students really quickly.” During the question and answer session, Collins’ fielded >>>20th, page 2

owners of the site at 270 The Kingsway, to produce a scaled back version of the mixed-use development proposal they’ve repeatedly called “too big, too dense, and too tall”, the Humber Valley Village Residents Association (HVVRA) decided to fund a redevelopment proposal of their own. Those plans, drawn up with the help of Weiss Architecture

and Urbanism, were unveiled to many among the association’s 900-strong membership at two meetings last month to unanimous approval, said HVVRA President Niels Christensen. “At residents’ expense we hired an architectural design firm and we came up with an alternative design that was based on feedback from our membership in opposition to

the First Capital proposal,” he said, noting those plans were presented at HVVRA meetings on Feb. 11 and 13. “We were delighted with the overwhelming support from our members.” Etobicoke Centre Councillor Gloria Lindsay Luby called HVVRA’s alternative design an “excellent” one. >>>ASSOCIATION, page 9

‘20th Century’ session discusses conclave and style of Pope Francis >>>from page 1 a variety of questions from the Grade 10 and 11 students, as well as a few Grade 7 students from nearby St. Eugene Catholic School. “I think Pope Francis will follow exactly the same path as Pope Benedict and John Paul and the others before him in terms of the faith of church, in terms of the protection of life from the first moment it exists to natural death, in terms of

the sanctity and holiness of marriage, and the importance of social justice in the world,” Collins said. “... but I think that Pope Francis will have his own style and his own way of presenting them... “I also think the pope will follow a direction of trying to let the world know about the good news of Jesus... His basic direction is towards real simplicity and strengthening of faith.”

Grade 11 student Shereen Niranjan asked the archbishop what qualities he saw in Bergoglio that made him think he would make a good pope. “Gradually we all kind of came together with Pope Francis because...I think what we all see in Cardinal Bergoglio is a very gentle, loving pastor,” Collins explained. Celebrated by the poor in his native Argentina as the

“slum pope”, Pope Francis is the first Latin American to be elected to the papacy, and has made a point of his commitment to the poor. When asked of the significance of Pope Francis’ Latin American background, Collins said Bergoglio’s cultural heritage didn’t play much of a role in his election – “we were mainly thinking of his general qualities as a very holy man and a pastor” – but that it

was quite fitting to see a Latin American elected, seeing as so many Catholics hail from the region. Robert Gallo, a teacher from St. Eugene, brought along three of his Grade 7 students to participate in the Skype date with Collins – an experience he described as “cutting edge.” “It’s really taking scripture and tradition and tweaking it with 21st century learning,”

he enthused. Gallo’s students, 12-yearolds Natalia Gajewska, Allyssa Clemeno and John Bandillo, got up together to ask Cardinal Collins to describe, in one word, what the whole experience of participating in his first papal conclave in Rome has been like. Collins’ answer: “Awesome!”

Rexdale Women’s Centre honours seniors Volunteers recognized for work with program bringing attention to elder abuse issue CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com

R

exdale Women’s Centre recognized the contributions of 18 members of its Rexdale Ethno-Cultural Seniors Program at an awards ceremony Wednesday honouring them for their volunteer work. “It’s surprising because they have so many other pressures in their lives – financial, family, health. For them to come and support the group, to support their community members, their peers and colleagues, really shows the level of their commitment,” RWC’s executive director Fatima Filippi said of the dedication displayed by seniors in the group. “For many of them this is their family, and that’s so telling because the need for that kind of social support is so vital for people feeling healthy and vibrant in the community.” Many of the seniors recognized on Wednesday took part in the New Horizons Project, a public awareness campaign urging seniors to “say no to abuse.” In partnership with In

Forma Theatre, the participating seniors began to meet last April to develop skits inspired by the real life abuse experiences shared by many in the group. In discussing what elder abuse meant to them, the group divided into four, which each subgroup tacking one form of abuse – from isolation, to financial abuse, to control issues, to failed expectations of Canada – in drama form.

Into community They then went out into the community, acting out their skits in front of intergenerational audiences at nine separate performances at the Rexdale Community Hub, Albion Mall, York Woods and Albion libraries, and Thistletown Multi-Service Centre from August through to January. Adam Perry, co-artistic director of In Forma Theatre, lauded the seniors’ “active participation” in a program whose anti elder abuse message reached so many. “The responses we got were so strong from the audiences,” he said, noting also the diversity of audience

members. “We did a lot of outreach... and one of the most important things from the program for me was the very, very active participation from our youth audiences. I think that’s a really important point, because in this project we had seniors outreaching to youth, which I think is a very unique experience for youth.”

Anuja Puthran, RWC’s manager of seniors’ services, said she was proud of how her seniors were able to connect with youth throughout the project, “The seniors took pride in helping raise awareness about elder abuse in the community, and we’re hoping that intergenerational efforts will help combat those issues,”

she said, recalling one particular performance where the Rexdale Ethno-Cultural Seniors members bonded with a local youth group. “Together, they began talking about solutions to dealing with the issues that both were facing.” For Robert Koil, participation in the New Horizons, Say No To Abuse program was not only an opportunity to speak out about elder abuse, but also to fulfill a childhood dream. “It gave us an opportunity to experience our young dreams. The last time I participated in plays and skits and drama was in my school days. I never dreamt that I could face an audience and take part in a drama or a play,” he said, noting how important the message of the skits were to their seniors actors. “Elder abuse is prev-

alent in this society today, for which many of our seniors go through. This gave us an opportunity to tell our stories – and to bring out our hidden talents.” In addition to being recognized for his participation in the New Horizons program, Koil was also recognized alongside Velia Speranza for 15 years of dedication to the Rexdale Ethno-Cultural seniors program, as its last two remaining founding members. The group was founded by RWC back in 1997 to help new immigrant seniors overcome the many barriers they face upon coming to Canada – from language barriers to a lack of knowledge of available services.

Donations of items sought for upcoming garage sale Proceeds benefit church’s mission to Nicaragua CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Richview Baptist Church is gearing up for its eighth annual garage sale to benefit its ongoing youth missions to Nicaragua. Over the last seven years, the Richview Baptist Church has sent members of its youth group to Nicaragua numerous times, where they’ve drilled a well that provides water for more than 3,000 people, built four chlorinators which each provide 30,000 gallons of clean water a day to the villages they serve, and have built two homes for families who formerly lived in shacks, said Richview’s youth group leader Paul Payne.

In doing so, Payne said his young charges have also “raised the quality of life for many Nicaraguans” – an experience that has “changed our youth’s perspective on the quality of life they live in Canada and on their understanding of how the poor live and survive.” This summer, on Aug. 17, Payne and another group of 22 youth and adults will return to the highlands of Nicaragua once again to continue providing villagers there with access to clean water. To achieve those ends, Richview Baptist is now reaching out to the community for donations of books, toys, housewares, clothing, furniture, electronics and

other goods that can be sold at their upcoming garage sale, where all proceeds benefit the church’s upcoming youth trip to Nicaragua. Richview Baptist Church, located at 1548 Kipling Ave. (two blocks north of Eglinton Avenue), will now be accepting donated items every Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10 a.m., and every Tuesday evening from 7 to 7:30 p.m. This year’s indoor fundraising garage sale will take place on Saturday, May 11 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The rain or shine event will feature a barbecue, live reptile show, silent auction and raffles.

hen it comes to living in harmony with wildlife, city residents will find education and awareness useful tools for peaceful coexistence. Scarborough Centre Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker issued a call this week for a staff report on updating the city’s policy on coyotes. According to a letter from the councillor to the city’s licensing committee, he would like to see a “formal ‘no kill’ protocol” for coyotes for animal services staff, the banning of feeding of coyotes within city limits and a “comprehensive outreach and education campaign regarding living in harmony with coyotes.” The committee agreed to have staff study De Baeremaeker’s proposal. While we agree making food sources easily accessible to wildlife needs to be curtailed, our view we’re unsure how an outright ban on feeding coyotes would Outreach be effectively enforced. If a bylaw can’t be enforced, can touch on what’s the point in having it? several species But the feeding issue is important. And the councillor’s call for an outreach and education campaign has potential for significant impact in all of the city’s neighbourhoods that share space with wildlife – and not just for coyotes. Depending on the area of the city you live in, you may share space that’s home to species such as owls, hawks, deer, foxes, raccoons, squirrels or possums. In our Wild in the City special report, published Jan. 31, we explored what species are endemic to our individual nine communities and why, whether they were fleeing the loss of habitat or using rail corridors for safe pathways. To see all of our stories from across the city, visit http://bit.ly/Yr8ZH4 In order to be truly comprehensive, any education campaign the city undertakes must include all species of wildlife that call the city home. This campaign can include best practices for secure storage of garbage and green bin materials, safety measures to protect domesticated pets and expert advice on any issues specific to certain species we’re liable to come across. Toronto can become a leader among other cities when it comes to demonstrating how its residents and wildlife can peacefully co-exist.

Board of Trade’s transit funding plans a good start toward building city’s future

T

he Toronto Region Board of Trade has been a big player in policy development at Toronto City Hall since amalgamation. Which is not to say that it’s always been a welcome player. In the early years of amalgamation under Mayor Mel Lastman, it proved a powerful ally in obtaining help from the federal and provincial government; during the Miller years, it attempted to provide budget advice that council – or at least the mayor – had little interest in hearing. It’s weighed in on social issues, infrastructure and tax policy at the same time as it’s engaged in its more core business of... well, business growth and retention. This week, the board

david nickle the city stepped into the fray once more: this time, with a suite of taxes, fees and levies to come up with about $3.5 billion a year, going towards public transit. public funding This is not a huge leap for the board. For years they’ve been advocating massive public funding of transportation infrastructure expansion in Toronto. On the other hand, it is newsworthy, when a business organization is the first out of the gate in proposing what under other circumstances its more conservative members might decry as a massive tax grab.

In this case, the conservatives who seem most uneasy about these proposals are the ones on Toronto Council. ford against new tax Mayor Rob Ford has made it clear that he doesn’t support any tax increases for transit. Doug Holyday, the deputy mayor, doesn’t like them much either. Even Karen Stintz, the chair of the Toronto Transit Commission and generally a more progressive conservative on council, worries about the $1-a-space parking levy the board’s suggesting. That reaction shouldn’t be the rule for the board’s proposals: specifically, a one per cent regional sales tax, a 10 cent per litre regional fuel tax, a road toll for HOV lanes and the

aforementioned parking levy. The proposal is a good start toward coming up with the $50-billion cost of the regional Let’s Move plan. One might add to that a portion of income tax – so that the entire cost isn’t borne through user fees and consumption taxes – but the Board of Trade does provide the basis for a payment plan for the cost of building our infrastructure to match our city’s needs and aspirations. The alternative is the continued reliance on the current mayor’s fantasy of private sector funding that will never materialize. In other words, stagnation.

TTC apologizes for ‘sorry’ subway service Monday night delays included fire at track level, subway door opening in tunnel RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com The day after a series of lengthy subway delays, an online video was posted by the TTC featuring its CEO offering an apology for the “sorry” service. “I just want to say sorry last

night for the poor subway service we offered last night,” says Andy Byford in the one minute and five second video posted to the TTC’s Youtube channel early Tuesday afternoon for the delays which began around 6 p.m. Monday. The most serious delay

lasted for 24 minutes when a TTC employee mistakenly opened the doors of a stationary train in the subway tunnel near Dupont Station. Meanwhile, at Eglinton Station, a fire at track level caused by litter forced another delay of almost 20 minutes.

Another fire, this one at Keele station, also caused a delay on the Bloor Danforth line. There were also triggered passenger assistance alarms leading to commuting chaos, crowded subway platforms – and frayed nerves for riders. In the video, Byford says an

investigation was underway to find out why the doors were opened at Dupont. In the case of the fires, Byford says safety protocol required a suspension of service until emergency personnel gave the okay. He concedes the TTC failed

to meet the commitments it set out a couple of weeks ago in a customer charter designed to improve service reliability. “Clearly we didn’t meet that objective last night.”

Made-in-Toronto transit improvements needed: Stintz DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

agency Metrolinx, for madein-Toronto transit improvements. “It’s my strong position that Toronto needs to be able to invest in its own transit plan, and its own transit future, so that we can prioritize the projects that make sense for the people of Toronto,” Stintz told reporters after the Toronto Region Board of Trade’s news conference.

The Toronto Region Board of Trade’s plan to raise revenue for public transit expansion through tolls, parking fees and other revenue tools offers some good ideas, but TTC chair Karen Stintz said at least some of those tools should be used by the city and not the provincial transit

The business association released a report, A Green Light To Moving on the Toronto Region: Paying for Public Transit Expansion. The board recommended, among other things, a one per cent regional sales tax, a dollar-per-parking space levy, a 10 cent a litre regional fuel tax and a toll for high occupancy vehicle lanes. “I think there’s a lot of value

in tolling HOV lanes,” she said. “Right now those lanes are under-utilized. If there are less than two people in a car and someone wants to access the lane and they’re willing to pay for it, that’s a choice they can make and a good way to potentially introduce the idea of tolls.” Stintz was more skeptical about the parking tax. In last year’s debate about subways

in Scarborough, then-budget-chief Mike Del Grande attempted to introduce a parking levy and eventually withdrew it for lack of support – and concerns raised on behalf of suburban shopping malls, where parking is typically free. “I think we want to be very cautious about where we implement it, how we implement it,” said Stintz.

Love and laughter rules Nobody’s Perfect MARIA TZAVARAS etg@insidetoronto.com Sometimes in life, you have to go to extremes in order to get what you want. In Theatre Etobicoke’s (TE) latest show, Nobody’s Perfect by Simon Williams, one man decides to go above and beyond to achieve his goal in a hilarious play that had the opening night audience laughing out loud throughout the entire show. return to roots After a short departure last season from comedies, TE has returned to its roots by staging this comedic gem, and it’s the perfect play to showcase what they do best. The show opens with single dad Leonard Loftus (Jamie Johnson) writing a book in his Santa Monica, California apartment, and waiting for his daughter Dee Dee (Nicole Marie McCafferty) to return from school. Once she arrives, the two begin to talk about life and

Dee Dee has two thoughts: grandpa Gus (Nick Forrow) must not be sent back to the nursing home, and dad needs a life-over. Besides being in a romantic rut since his wife left him, working from home as a “boring” statistician and hobby author has eliminated any prospects of Leonard meeting someone new. That is until he meets Harriet (Jennifer Schembri), also unlucky in love and an editor at Love is All Around. She has the task of finding the next great female writer and a new book, and is thrilled when she finds Leonard’s book, written under the pseudonym Lulubelle Latisha. Seeing as it’s a feminist publishing house, Leonard has to become Lulubelle Latisha in order to get his book published and the $50,000 that goes with it. So he decides to dress up as a woman to become Leonard’s “aunt” Latisha in order to meet Harriet. Not only is getting the nuances and mannerisms of

a woman funny to watch, but so is watching him trying to hide his attraction to Harriet. Meanwhile, grandpa Gus is constantly up to something crazy with Dee Dee as his sidekick, making the whole process even more challenging for Leonard. well-written comedy This show is the perfect combination of a well-written, modern comedy with the right actors cast, direction and audience energy. At times, the audience’s laughter was so loud the actors had to wait before delivering their next line. And, they managed to keep their composure when the audience couldn’t contain itself. The comedic timing is impeccable, coupled with their reactions and expressions. The acting is authentic, the characters are the perfect balance of over-the-top and realistic despite the crazy situation. Johnson as Leonard and Lulubelle will have you con-

HOpping over

stantly laughing. He plays a believable, sympathetic Leonard, and a confident, eccentric Lulubelle. Schembri is a natural as the tightlywound turned love-struck Harriet, and enjoyable to watch. How she interacts with the crazy Loftus family without cracking up is a skill in and of itself. Forrow as grandpa Gus is amazing, stealing the scene several times with his naughty ways and hilarious one-liners. His scenes with his counterpart Dee Dee are some of the best scenes, and McCafferty keeps up with both actors with her own talented portrayal of Dee Dee. While nothing and no-one is perfect, as far as comedic productions go, this one is the perfect show to go out and have an evening of fun and laughter. Nobody’s Perfect runs until March 24, 8 p.m. at The Assembly Hall, 1 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Dr. General admission is $22. For tickets, call 416-246-1889 or visit www. theatre-etobicoke.com

Association to forge ahead and find ‘best possible solution’ >>>from page 1 “I like the greenspace idea and I like the walkability. I want to ensure that what’s architecturally there is not just glass towers – it has to be in keeping with the Homesmith character of that neighbourhood, and I don’t see that with First Capital’s proposal,” she said. “All they’re going to do is put in a modernistic looking thing...I want it to be more traditional and timeless – iconic.” First Capital Realty’s VP of Development Jodi Shpigel declined to comment on the HVVRA alternative proposal for the Humbertown Plaza, explaining that neither she nor her team have seen the plans. In terms of First Capital Realty’s latest proposal for the site, though, she said she believes it’s “something that the community, in time, will be very much in acceptance of.” While the original First Capital proposal for the Humbertown Plaza site submitted last January included five 11- to 21-storey residential towers, the newest incarnation of that plan – filed with the city in December – has seen both the number of buildings and their heights scaled back. Those revisions, Shpigel said, came about in part due to resident feedback received over the course of several community, working group and city staff meetings the company has participated in over the last year. “What we’ve done generally is reduce the number of residential buildings from five down to three, reduced the heights (down to 12, 10 and eight storeys) and also increased the amount of publicly accessible open space on the ground level,” she said. “Our revised proposal also improved the quality of the urban design, the public realm, the sustainability initiatives and the landscaping – all of those elements have progressed quite significantly...so we’re quite pleased with the progress that the proposal has made over the course of the year.” While Christensen conceded First Capital has scaled back their original application “significantly”, he said their proposal is still unacceptable because it hasn’t dealt with many of the other problematic issues with the site – density chief among them. “They have changed the heights significantly since their first proposal, but really if you look at it carefully, all they’ve done is squashed and spread the development across the site. In actual fact, their last revision has increased the lot coverage to 73 per cent higher than the previous designs,” he charged. “They’ve given up on height, they’ve given up on the number of buildings, but what they haven’t given up on is the densities.” HVVRA is now planning on going ahead with its own independent arborist, traffic studies and retail peer groups to continue to search for the “best possible solution for this site,” Christensen added. “The character of our neighourhood is something that is really special to the people that live here...it’s like a village within a city,” he said. “First Capital has been quite famous for

some of its developments, one of which is Liberty Village... but Humber Valley Village is not Liberty Village – it’s a suburban environment, not an urban one, and we don’t think that it should be turned into one.” The city’s planning department is expected to provide a report with their recommendations for the Humbertown site at the end of April. That report will be presented for a vote on May 14 at Etobicoke York Community Council, where residents are invited to attend and share their thoughts. The matter will then go before Toronto City Council on June 11.

Alternate Design HVVRA’s alternative design – which limits heights in the Humbertown development to six storeys in keeping with the city’s guidelines for midrise buildings along avenues – features five buildings, incorporates residential condominiums and townhouses on the 10-acre site, and is based on five principles: • Maintaining the continuity of Humber Valley Village’s “majestic” tree canopy – the HVVRA design features building setbacks of 10.4 metres away from curbs “in order for trees to grow and mature.”

• Maintaining the community’s lowrise nature – Humber Valley Village comprises a dominant built form of mostly single-family homes, so the HVVRA’s six-storey design alternative is a “reasonable maximum height that respects the character of the neighbourhood.” • Compatibility with the neighbourhood’s scale and texture – the HVVRA design uses setbacks and stepped back architectural design features, “so that buildings don’t appear as if they are looming over the rest of the surrounding community.” • Visual and physical connectivity – an “inviting” neighbourhood square off of Royal York Road is just one of the “functional connections” the HVVRA design purports will bring the community into Humbertown. • Creation of a neighbourhood square and water feature – the HVVRA-proposed, yearround space on Royal York will “encourage community gatherings such as skating in the winter, lounging in the summer, local school choirs at Christmas, and farmers’ markets in the fall.”

Secrets revealed to help you…

Beat Lower Back, Disc And Sciatic Pain Now

T

hankfully, new natural treatment methods help many find the relief they had been searching for.

Sciatica is a painful condition that affects the sciatic nerve. The pain usually radiates into one or both buttocks, descends the back of the leg and can sometime be felt in the foot. It is often a severe, knife-like pain, but can also be noticed as numbness or tingling in the leg and foot. It is unpredictable and does not go away even when you change positions or lay down. Sciatica can result from years of poor posture, muscle strain, pregnancy, excess weight, wearing high heels, or sleeping on a very soft mattress. Sciatica is often a symptom of a slipped disc, pinched nerve or arthritis. Although pain pills may temporarily cover up the symptoms, our holistic approach can provide a more effective, long term relief. “Our team members apply their individual skills and knowledge to make an accurate diagnosis and administer the right treatment that will get the best result for each patient.”

Dr. Peter Ng has a special interest in natural pain relief and Chinese medicine. If you suffer from chronic back, neck, arm or leg pain, call (416) 745-1974 or visit our website www.kiplingchiro.com Serving Our Community Since 1979

Candle safety tips in time for Earth Hour

It’s about the life you touch. Please, donate to the Brampton Civic Equipment Campaign. Call Osler Foundation at (905) 494-6890 or visit

www.oslerfoundation.org

Toronto residents will join millions of people around the globe by switching off the lights to celebrate Earth Hour Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 p.m. Toronto Fire Services recommends not using candles when the lights go out Saturday, but instead use a battery-powered flashlight. If candles are used, fire services offer these tips: • Always stay in the room

where candles are lit. • Extinguish all candles when leaving the room. • Avoid using candles in bedrooms. • Keep candles at least one metre away from anything that can burn. • Keep candles, matches and lighters hidden and out of the reach of children. • Use sturdy candle holders that won’t tip or burn. Consider using a candle holder

that encloses the flame in a glass shade or chimney. • Extinguish candles when they burn to within five centimetres (two inches) of their holder. • Make sure you have working smoke alarms on every storey of your home. • Practise your home fire escape plan.

I would like to take this opportunity also to thank and commend your agent Robert Paluzzi who has been a wealth of information for us. He was well informed both for our purchase and the sale of our home. He was always professional, punctual, informative and very accommodating. He was extremely thorough in explaining wording, conditions, waiver, etc. He was always cheerful and charismatic. He graciously answered all our many questions and addressed our concerns. We could not have been so blessed with having an agent like Robert. His presence certainly radiates a positive trusting and charismatic persona. We are very lucky to have had this experience with him. We are sure that he will marvel your company in many ways. Once again, please thank Robert for his expertise and caring manner that he has shown us. Sincerely, Mary G.

Air conditioning impacts fuel efficiency When it comes to controlling the costs associated with driving your vehicle, did you know that when in use, air conditioning systems consume significant amounts of fuel? It’s a fact to keep in mind as the warmer seasons approach. When the air conditioning is on, fuel consumption can actually increase by up to 20 per cent, according to Natural Resources Canada. While consumption depends on the vehicle’s interior size, outdoor temperature, and other

operating conditions, if you drive a fuel-efficient automobile, the impact of air conditioning use is usually quite noticeable. A few simple conservation measures can help drivers reduce fuel use: • Turn off the air conditioning once the vehicle is cool. • Use the re-circulation button. This requires less energy since the air conditioning system isn’t cooling the warm air from outside. • Let the air flow. Use ventilation

on the highway; open your windows and sunroof while driving in the city. • Adjust the thermostat settings to be comfortable, not cold. • Park out of direct sunlight. • When returning to a hot car, open the windows for a few minutes before turning on the air conditioning. • Be a smart buyer. Look for an air conditioning system with an “econo” mode or smart controls.

ELANTRA COUPE

suits up in style

As of late, I’ve been a big fan of Hyundai, and in particular the Elantra, which I believe is one of the marque’s most-improved products. I would credit much of this to content, for example making navigation, rearview camera, proximity key with push-button start, and even heated leather seats – front and rear – available in a vehicle that n AT A GLANCE: BODY STYLE: Compact sporty coupe. DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, frontwheel drive. ENGINE: 1.8-litre DOHC four-cylinder (148 hp, 131 lb/ft of torque). FUEL ECONOMY: six-speed manual, 7.2/5.2/6.3 L/100 km city/highway; sixspeed automatic 7.6/5.3/6.6 L/100 km city/highway PRICE: GLS manual, $19,949; GLS automatic, $21,199; SE automatic, $25,199. WEB: www.hyundaicanada.ca

is second from their bottom rung. And I’d credit equal parts to styling. Fluidic sculpture is spot on with the Elantra Coupe, one of the company’s sharpest rides. In the two-door Elantra, Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille and swept-back headlights provide a bolder first impression than any predecessor. Slit fog lights flow into muscular front wheel arches, adding to the aggressive demeanour. What’s best about the new exterior is its side profile. The wedge silhouette with deeply sculpted surfaces and upswept character lines is yet another example of why two doors generally look better than four. Add the optional five-spoke 17inch alloy wheels as found in SE trim, and you’d think this sporty coupe far exceeds its $25,199 price tag. The same goes for the nicely fitted interior. Even at the $19,949 for the base GLS with manual, you get a well-equipped car that includes the usual power locks, windows, keyless entry and air, along with heated front seats (six/four-way adjustable for driver and passenger), hands-

Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture design gives the 2013 Elantra Coupe a deeply sculpted wedge silhouette. It also provides a bold first impression, thanks to its large hexagonal grille, flanked by swept-back headlights and slit foglights.

free Bluetooth, tilt/telescopic and leatherwrapped steering with audio and cruise controls, 60/40 split folding rear seats, and 172-Watt AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers. Despite the Coupe’s taut styling and steeply-raked roofline, it does match its four-door sibling on nearly all key dimensions: wheelbase, rear head and leg room, and overall volume including the trunk. The rear of this sporty coupe is capacious enough for full-size adults to sit

comfortably, and there are no gymnastics in getting back there, as the front seat travels well forward for easy access. What’s missing from the Coupe’s passenger cabin is abundant wind noise at highway speeds, thanks to a slippery exterior. Drag coefficient is 0.28 Cd, which is extremely low by any standard. Choose your own gears with the sixspeed manual, and it’s even more fuel efficient. Active Eco, which comes standard with all automatic transmission models,

ups the green ante. It will sap some of the life from this engine, but at $1.30-plus per litre, I’m willing to compromise. Hyundai not only has a vehicle for nearly every taste and budget, but in the compact segment, where most Canadian buyers choose to spend their hardearned dough, they provide real options that are about more than just content levels and price.

2013 NISSAN PATHFINDER

Volkswagen goes electric Volkswagen is writing a new chapter in mobility in presenting its first fully electric production vehicle: the new e-up!. The four-seat car, which operates with nearly zero noise, is being shown at today’s Annual Press and Investors Conference in Wolfsburg. The new e-up! boasts a driving range of 150 km and excellent everyday practicality. With nearly zero noise, the e-up! is powered by an electric motor with 60 kW/80 hp peak power – without any disturbing gearshift interruptions or powertrain noise. Its continuous power is 40 kW/55 hp. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h within 14 seconds and reaches a top speed of 135 km/h. The lithium-ion battery integrated in the under

floor area has a total energy storage capacity of 18.7 Kilowatt-hours (kWh); this means that the car can cover up to 150 km (per NEDC) on a single charge thanks to its low vehicle weight of 1,185 kg. The port for charging the battery in the e-up! is hidden behind the ‘fuel filling flap’. As an option, the Combined Charging System (CCS) is used, which has been standardized by Volkswagen and other carmakers. It supports both DC and AC charging, so that drivers can easily charge their cars at most charging stations – regardless of the power sources or charging rates that they offer. In autumn, the e-up! will make its show debut at the International Auto Show in Frankfurt and following this will become available to order.

Mayor Ford wants 10 per cent cut to the Land Transfer Tax DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Mayor Rob Ford will be bringing a proposed 10 per cent cut to the Land Transfer Tax to Toronto council in July, after his executive committee backed his request to have a report on how the city might shave the $34 million in annual revenue by the 2014 budget. “It won’t be a boring summer, that’s for sure,” quipped Ford following the vote Wednesday afternoon. Ford has vowed to phase out the tax, which brings in $340 million a year in revenue to the city by taxing real estate transactions. During the 2010 mayoralty race, Ford had promised to get rid of the entire tax, offsetting the revenue by cutting “gravy” from city spending. But as the term wore on, it became clear to many councillors that there wasn’t $340 million in waste-

ful spending to be cut — and removing the tax would mean either raising property taxes or making deep cuts in programs and services. Ford made his motion as council was considering a member’s motion from works committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong, to study simply capping the Land Transfer Tax, so the city would not collect excess money in a red-hot real estate market. Minnan-Wong said he would support getting rid of or phasing out the tax — but only if the revenue loss could be offset some how. He maintained the cap would be a reasonable compromise. “It says you don’t have to find an offset because the revenue stream continues, but it gives a modest amount of relief,” he said. “We have to look at all the tools that are available to reduce the Land

Transfer Tax, but in a reasonable fashion.” Other councillors on the committee had their own ideas. Willowdale Councillor David Shiner called the tax “usurious” and made a motion to cut it by $90 million — or 25 per cent — each year over the next four. Don Valley East Councillor Shelley Carroll, who served as budget chief under former mayor David Miller, said the only option council would have in cutting the tax would be to raise property taxes. “We originally asked for this investment so that we could stabilize our property tax rate,” said Carroll, saying the move was not only fiscally imprudent, but politically imprudent too.

No special casino deal for city: Wynne DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Mayor Rob Ford won’t fold his support for a casino in Toronto — despite word from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne that there will be no special deal for Toronto when it comes to calculating the hosting fee. “A new funding formula doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to be bad,” said Ford, following the announcement from Wynne’s office that the $50-$100 million promised Toronto by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation won’t necessarily materialize. Wynne said Toronto will be treated like any other municipality that hosts a casino, and will be paid its hosting fee according to the same formula. That has opponents and some councillors who haven’t made up their mind suggesting that a casino in Toronto is effectively dead. But Ford said Toronto should still expect a heftier payout from the province for hosting a major downtown casino. “Compare us to Ottawa

— we’re three times the size, we’re the largest city in Ontario,” said Ford. “Looking at the funding formula — I have no problem with that.” hosting fee unknown However, Ford would not say if he would still support a casino if the money didn’t materialize, calling the question “premature.” Others, however, said a seriously diminished hosting fee would cause problems for the plan. “There are more red flags for me than there are green flags,” said Scarborough East Councillor Paul Ainslie. “I’d still like to see the report but this is one of the concerns. When we first were talking about it, the proposed hosting fee of $168 million seemed like pie in the sky. We’ve gone from $168 to $150 to $120 million to $100 million, and now we’re floating down at $20 million before there’s a shovel in the ground.” Trinity-Spadina Councillor Mike Layton’s ward contains Exhibition Place, where MGM is hoping to build a massive

casino and entertainment complex. He said no one should have been surprised the Liberal minority government at Queen’s Park wasn’t willing to shell out for a special deal for Toronto. “Since Day One, I’ve said that in provincial politics, the way it works is you don’t give Toronto a special deal,” he said. “You might win by getting some seats in Toronto, but there are other jurisdictions that have casinos too. If they start making preferred deals for Toronto, the government doesn’t sustain itself past the next election.” Toronto’s City Manager Joe Pennachetti, meanwhile, wouldn’t comment on the matter. His office has been working on a report laying out the pros and cons of hosting a casino in the city. The report was to have come to the executive committee this month, but has been delayed while the city and the province sort out hosting fee, among other financial matters.

Prepare a deck or patio for entertaining As the weather beings to warm up, many Canadians’ thoughts are turning to those long summer nights entertaining outdoors. There are many things homeowners can do to ensure their entertaining space is safe and functional. Here are a few key tips for readying your yard for entertaining possibilities. Expand on these basics to customize an area for your unique needs. Check the area for any needed repairs: Prior to your first entertaining session, look over the deck or patio to take note of any flaws that may present safety hazards. Are there any loose railings? Are all screws and nails flush so they do not cause tripping? Are there any cracks in concrete or loose patio blocks? Be sure to remedy all of the repairs needed to ensure guests will be safe. If you are unsure of any structural deficits, consult with a contractor. Hire a reputable contractor: If you

are just laying the groundwork for a new patio or deck, it is important to get the necessary permits and then hire a person who has been properly vetted. Check qualifications and licensing before hiring a contractor and ask to view a portfolio of his or her previous work. Word-of-mouth recommendations from trusted friends and family members are a good place to start. Think about closing in a portion of a deck or patio: The use of a canopy, netting or even greenery to protect an entertaining space can help minimize weather-related damage to outdoor furniture. Netting will keep a good number of biting insects at bay when the weather is warm and humid. Having a bit of concealment also means you can create a private space that isn’t easily viewed by neighbors or passersby. Plan well-defined areas: Just as

rooms serve different purposes inside of the home, outdoor areas can be separated according to usage. Establish a sitting nook where guests can gather and talk. Have a bar or serving area where refreshments are made and served. Make sure there is a shaded area for when the sun is too uncomfortable to make sitting outside enjoyable. Similarly, have a sunny area where people can soak up a few rays or dry off after a dip in the spa or pool. Don’t forget to establish a spot for the kids to converge with scaled-down amenities. Invest in quality outdoor furniture: Today’s yards are extensions of a home’s interior. Guests no longer want to sit on uncomfortable metal or plastic furniture. There are many different outdoor sofas and chairs that are as stylish as they are comfortable. These pieces can be matched to the decor inside your home for a cohesive look. Accessorize: Consider the creature

comforts of indoors and mimic that outdoors. Don’t shy away from hanging artwork on an exterior wall or using urns or pottery to decorate the space. Weather-resistant materials ensure ev-

erything from clocks to televisions can be used outdoors. Think about having an entire set of serving dishes and other entertaining items for the outdoors. – MS

Before You Spend Thousands on a New Roof… The Integrity Roof System

What Risks Do You Face? According to the Better Business Bureau, which tracks the ‘reputable’ roofing companies, roofing is at or near the top of the list for customer enquiries and complaints for the last three years in a row. Homeowners with limited experience in roof replacement rely on the roofing contractor to recommend the proper specifications. This process becomes confusing because there is no regulation in the industry, and each contractor recommends a different job. What you should know about roof surface or roof deck preparation: The roof deck is the structural surface over which your roofing materials are applied. All roof boards and/or plywood must be fastened securely to the rafters, and damaged or rotten wood must be replaced. Your attic should be inspected before the work starts to uncover potential problems. A bad roof surface allows the nails to push up through the shingles, causing leaks. What you should know about underlayment: A complete underlay system should be applied before your shingles are installed. There are two types of roofing underlay, waterproof and water resistant. Waterproof underlay is needed in areas most vulnerable to leaks: the eaves edge of the roof; in valleys, at dormer sides, around chimneys and around skylights. Water resistant underlay, often called “tar paper”, is needed on the remaining roof area. Water resistant underlay protects the roof surface in a storm situation where a few shingles blow off, but cannot be replaced immediately. What you should know about ventilation: Improper attic venting is a common cause of early shingle failure, and your product warranty requires that your attic have proper ventilation. Venting consists of intake and exhaust. To facilitate proper air flow, your attic needs intake vents located in the overhang and exhaust vents at the roof peak. A balanced venting system is required; otherwise air will be pulled from your house. An inspection of your attic is essential to present appropriate and complete venting solutions. What you should know about shingle quality: All shingles are not the same. Estimators should include at least three grades of shingles and inform you of the real expected shingle life. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, better quality shingles often provide you with the best value when measured on a cost per year basis.

Be more active this season The arrival of spring weather means it’s time to stop hibernating on the couch and get back to a healthier lifestyle. Embracing an activity does not mean you have to start training for the triathlon. In fact, a few minor adjustments to your current routine might be all it takes to reap the rewards of living a more active lifestyle. Walk This Way: Instead of retiring to the couch after dinner, take a walk around the neighborhood with your family or significant other. Or go it alone and use your nightly walk as a peaceful opportunity to collect your thoughts. Walking after dinner is a great way to get in some daily cardiovascular exercise, and a post-dinner walk might encourage you to eat less. Embrace a Cause: Numerous charities sponsor charity walks or runs that provide participants with an opportunity to raise money for a good cause. Even better, such events tend to take all com-

ers, so you might be able to enlist your friends, family members or coworkers to join you. Signing up for a 10K might be just the motivation you need to get out and start training. And once the training begins, chances are you won’t want to stop even after the charity event has come and gone. Join a Sports League: Many men and women played in recreational sports leagues as a youth or young adult. Unfortunately, it’s easy to abandon those recreation-

al activities when the responsibilities of work and family take over. But joining a sports league is a great way to reach your weekly exercise goals, meet new friends and reconnect with a game you might have loved as a child. Many people find it’s easier to embrace a more active lifestyle when they enjoy their physical activities, so find a sport you enjoy playing and then start playing it more. – MS

Make your home energy efficient It’s time to end the winter hibernating and revitalize your home for another busy spring and summer season. As you plan the spring cleaning, consider using

the opportunity to think about how to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Examine windows and insulation. Up to 30 per cent of a home’s

heating and cooling costs can be lost through poorly fitted windows and doors. Caulking and weather stripping or upgrading to new energy efficient windows

can save homeowners approximately $150 per year on their energy bill. Don’t forget about the light bulbs. When replacing them, remember that an energy-saving light bulb can last up to 10 times longer than a normal bulb and

use up to 75 per cent less energy. Remember your filters. Replacing or washing your furnace filters allows a central air conditioning system to run more efficiently too. Filters should be washed or replaced every three months (some are 30 days.

1000's of Products. 100's of Animals. 3 Days.

Consider booking a pre-summer maintenance with a licensed technician who can make sure your air conditioner is summerready and able to perform more efficiently when higher temperatures put it to the test. – newscanada.com
