EMP show cancelled due to safety concerns Etobicoke Musical Productions (EMP) has cancelled its upcoming production of Bye Bye Birdie, which was set to run from Nov. 15 to 30. In a notice on the EMP website, the company’s board of directors attributed the cancellation to safety issues at their performance facility, noting that, effective Nov. 1,

the Toronto District School Board ( TDSB) closed the Burhamthorpe Auditorium “immediately and for an unknown period of time.” “Since we have no other viable performance facility, and all of our production sets and equipment are in the theatre and not accessible, we had no other option than to make this difficult decision,”

the EMP statement reads. When contacted by The Guardian, TDSB spokesperson Shari Schwartz-Maltz confirmed that the auditorium at Burnhamthorpe Adult Learning Centre is currently closed “for health and safetyrelated reasons and issues.” “There were some renovations done by an external group that permit the space,

and upon further investigation, that’s when we realized it doesn’t meet our building and safety codes,” she said, noting that the concerns stem from electrical issues at the site. “It currently doesn’t meet our building and fire codes.” Schwartz-Maltz said board officials are currently investigating the matter.

The kingsway women’s club

Continuing the tradition of bringing women together, 78 years on to organize all of its interest groups over the years – from a current affairs lecture group in 1935, to drama and book review groups in 1937, to an art study group in 1946, and an everpopular investment group in 1964. Other groups included millinery, dressmaking, flower arrangement, garden study, antiques, music and choral, and mosaics groups. The key to keeping Etobicoke’s “best-kept secret” afloat, Spratt, Dubbin and Rutledge agree, is in letting that secret out and recruiting new members. “We’re open to anyone who wants to come and meet new people,” Dubbin said, noting that there are no geographical boundaries to membership in The Kingsway Women’s Club. “The only restriction, I suppose, is that you have to be female,” she laughed.

Club founded in 1935 to stave off isolation of housewives CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Etobicoke’s “best-kept secret” is now recruiting new members. Founded in 1935 with the motto “Cultural Advancement and Neighbourliness”, The Kingsway Women’s Club was first established as a means of staving off the isolation felt by housewives in the thenfast-growing, albeit still remote, central Etobicoke community of Kingsway Park. “When our family moved out here from High Park in 1930, it was woods and fields and beautiful, but it sure was country. There was bus service, but back then it was only every two hours, and most families only had one car, which the husbands drove to work in the city,” said past president Margaret Rutledge, daughter of The Kingsway Women’s Club’s founding president, Mrs. F.H. Adamson. “My mother realized shortly after moving here that young women with active minds in the area needed stimulation to diminish their feelings of isolation. There needed to be a club for ladies – a regular gettogether for women that needed to be interesting, have information sharing, world development, and cultural and social communication.” Fast forward 78 years and today The Kingsway Women’s Club has grown from its humble beginnings of just 10 women who met regularly at each other’s homes, to boast more than 70, mostly retired members who meet on the second Friday of each month from October to April at Markland Wood Golf Club. This year’s programme, which launched earlier this month with an opening luncheon, includes four upcoming afternoon teas and two more luncheons (see sidebar for full schedule). Each afternoon tea includes a special guest speaker – this year’s

Upcoming Meetings

Current and former executive of The Kingsway Women’s Club sit down at Markland Wood Golf Club to reminisce about the club’s history. From left are Margaret Rutledge (past president), Carol Spratt (current president) and Darlene Dubbin (past president).

There needed to be a club for ladies... that needed to be interesting, have information sharing, world development, and cultural and social communication. – Margaret Rutledge, past president and daughter of founding president Mrs. F.H. Adamson

slate includes the head of education at the Bata Shoe Museum and the curator of the Toronto Public Library’s Arthur Conan Doyle collection, among others – while each luncheon features musical entertainment, from the Richmond Hill Bell Ringers who will perform at this year’s holiday luncheon, to the talented student performers from Etobicoke School of the Arts, who will close out the club’s season at the spring luncheon in April. Current Kingsway Women’s Club President Carol Spratt said the club is now actively seeking new members – and invited all to come out to one of the club’s upcoming events

to see what they’re all about. “Come one, come all – and bring a friend. I urge everyone to come out,” she said, noting that in addition to the monthly gatherings at Markland Wood Golf Club, The Kingsway Women’s Club also boasts active book and bridge clubs. “For me, the big draw is the social aspect of the club. It’s a nice monthly outing for women who maybe don’t have many other outlets. Plus, it’s all friendly women, you get some entertainment, and you maybe learn something at one of the teas.” For those wary of joining a new club, past president Darlene Dubbin assured current members of the club are always more than willing to take new members under their wing. “One thing we started this year is a mentorship program,” she explained. “So if there’s a new person coming in, we match them with a member who’s been with us for a number of years and have them introduce them around, answer any questions they have and make them feel welcome.” For Rutledge, seeing how the club

her mother founded has continued to flourish over the years makes her proud. Most of the Adamson family dinner-time conversations in those early days nearly 80 years ago, she noted, revolved around its formation. “Every dinner for at least three years, there was very little conversation aside from The Kingsway Women’s Club,” she laughed. “The organization to get the club’s first meeting took about that long, and my father was so happy, because then he could finally get a word in edgewise at the dinner table. Everybody was focusing on the club so much before that – even my brothers were adding their nickel’s worth.” From an original membership of 10, Rutledge remembers how quickly The Kingsway Women’s Club grew to numbering in the hundreds. The club found its first – and longtime – home at the Old Mill, where a plaque listing the names of all of The Kingsway Women’s Club’s past presidents still hangs prominently in the entrance. There, the club’s members met

Create a lasting impression of Remembrance Day

Write us

E

very year we don the crimson poppy to honour our veterans for their service and sacrifice. We donate to the Royal Canadian Legion so that they may continue to support them. We reflect upon their contribution to our country with ceremonies on Nov. 11 and a minute of silence. Unfortunately for many, that’s the extent of their personal commitment to the occasion. What else can one do? The answer is much more – especially today with the aid of social media and online tools. In fact, it’s become so easy to learn, spread awareness of our history and share the stories of our veterans that the question becomes, why wouldn’t you do more? For starters, visit bit.ly/174PWqT where we list local Remembrance Day services, stories and where we’ll our view veteran have photo galleries of those ceras they happen. We can do so emonies If you know a veteran or somemuch to share one who’s currently in service, post their photo to our Facebook veteran stories page www.facebook.com/ EtobicokeGuardianr so that we can honour them in our online community. While on Facebook, head over to the Canada Remembers page www.facebook.com/ CanadaRemembers to find a variety of unique ways to remember our veterans and to see links to fascinating articles like ‘Tales of Animals in War’. View and share some of the 106 Canadian Army Newsreels being released on YouTube by the War Amps at www.youtube.com/warampsofcanada. The more than 20 hours of footage were filmed and produced by the Canadian Army Film Unit and document our troops in action on the front lines in some of the Second World War’s major events, like the invasion of Sicily and D-Day. Get the kids involved and have them write an online message (bit.ly/1a5dv6g) to our soldiers who are currently serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. Help grow a permanent record of the veteran experience by getting in touch with The Memory Project if you know a veteran who may be willing to have his or her story recorded and their memorabilia digitized: www.thememoryproject.com Tap into any of these accessible resources and you’ll be helping to create a lasting impression of some of our finest citizens. After all they’ve done, that’s the least they deserve.

column

Ford has absented himself from role of mayor

T

oronto City Council is in disarray, and it will likely remain so for some time. That is the one thing that one can safely write, in a column that met a late Tuesday afternoon deadline: just a few hours after Mayor Rob Ford made his stunning admission – that he has indeed smoked crack cocaine – and a few minutes after his late-inthe-day news conference that he still means to be mayor. Things are moving quickly, and no doubt as this shows up in newspaper boxes and doorsteps things will have no doubt developed. But this remains: the mayor has admitted to smoking crack cocaine, sometime last year, while in office. In doing so, regardless of whether he stays in his office, he has effectively absented himself from his role as mayor. Council won’t, and really shouldn’t,

david nickle the city support him. Council is going to have to find a way to steer itself over the next year. At the next council meeting, council will take some steps toward doing that. Willowdale Councillor John Filion has brought forward a motion to temporarily strip the mayor of all his powers, seizing for council the ability to appoint an executive committee and deputy mayor. Denzil Minnan-Wong, the Don Valley East councillor who has been one of Ford’s more effective lieutenants on that executive committee, is asking the mayor to simply leave and look after himself. There was also word Tuesday that the mayor’s brother Doug could be off the budget commit-

tee, after he demanded Toronto police Chief Bill Blair’s resignation over the chief’s comments when he unveiled the existence of the video that appears to show Rob Ford smoking crack. That sets up an infrastructure that might allow council to control its own agenda. But the task will just be beginning. In a few weeks, council will have before it the 2014 operating budget to debate and pass. This is an area where a strong mayor either leads with a plan, or provides an idea to oppose. Who will give voice to the vision for this budget? Karen Stintz? One of the other pretenders to the mayoralty next year? Now, almost certainly council will keep the city running, the tax rates reasonable and the services intact. But anyone who thinks it will be smooth need only look at the flail-

ing debate over subways versus light rail versus other subways to abandon that idea. Council will also be making up its mind on the Billy Bishop Airport extension some time before the next election. Once again, some sort of decision will emerge – but it, like the budget, will emerge from chaos. If Mayor Ford were gone, then Norm Kelly, the avuncular councillor from Scarborough-Agincourt, could ably step in and guide matters, in the manner of Ford’s mandate. But as deputy to the crippled wreck that the Ford administration will have become, it will be difficult for him to do any better. Ford has left an awful, filthy mess for others to clean up.

Gnome makes it back home To the editor: How do you thank an honest neighbour responsible for returning a treasured garden ornament to its rightful owner? I was approached by a woman walking past my garden. She stopped to inquire as to how much I had paid for my bobble head gnome that stood on my front step. Her eyes widened in disbelief as I told her I had paid $80 plus tax, half price for the ornament that weights 40 pounds and stands three feet tall. I also mentioned how upset my friend was that hers had been stolen from outside her front door. I was in shock when she said she thought she knew where the stolen gnome was.

It seems she had noticed one in her neighbours’ backyard and asked the boy next door where it came from. He said his friends had stolen it as a joke and left it in his yard, since his parents were away. He was proud to say that ‘I didn’t do it’. For fear (the kids) would break it, she hid it in a nearby bush’. She immediately went home and 15 minutes later, returned with the gnome.Together we returned it to its rightful owner. Thank goodness for neighbours looking out for one another. It gives me hope and reassures me that everything happens for a reason and how lucky we are to have good neighbours. Patty Lovelass

Flood Ford with emails to step down To the editor: Now that we know the truth about Mayor Rob Ford what are the citizens of Toronto going to do about it? Ford suffers from an inflated ego and he can do no wrong, and wrong is what he is. I think Torontonians have been more than patient and we do not deserve any delay in getting rid of the mayor. It would be a good idea for mas-

sive protests and emails to assail Ford’s office and let him know we want him out. I want a mayor who is trustworthy, principled, honest and respects the city he lives in. I want a mayor who has sound judgement and the wherewithal to make Toronto a truly world-class city. What I don’t want is Ford. Kathleen Matthews

Mayor’s alleged addictions don’t cost taxpayers money, reader says To the editor: An open letter to Mayor Rob Ford: Mayor Rob Ford, those hyenas in the press and politicos of the left are gloating you have hit bottom. That may be so, but I hope you will continue to fight for us the downtrodden taxpayers, and that you will continue to serve us the best way you can. I am not expressing my blind loyalty; I am expressing my continuing support of your policies

and appreciation of what you have accomplished so far. Personal foibles As far as I know, your personal foibles have not cost me a cent of my tax dollars, unlike those corrupt, gravy-train-addicted, privileged politicos at other levels of government, whose outrageous scandals will continue to hit my wallet for many years to come. I’d still entrust you with my vote,

rather than put your gravy-trainaddicted opponents in power again. The gravy-train mindset at city hall has got to end. To give you a historical perspective, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln’s most effective field general was General Ulysses Grant, who was known to love the bottle. Upon knowing this, Lincoln made sure the general was well supplied with his liquid nourishment. R. Javier

Cyclists have to play safe on the road, too I have a comment regarding Toronto’s new Stay Safe, Stay Alert campaign. I would like to congratulate the city on finally doing something about the daily after-dark traffic nightmare we in the city must endure. It is time that some common sense rules were laid out for the general public to follow. However, I feel that the warning to

the cyclist’s section has been deliberately watered down. I don’t think that cyclists should merely ‘consider’ wearing bright or reflective clothing. They should be made to. I wish there had been some guidance regarding the quality of the lighting bikes. Most bikes that I can barely see on the roads are equipped with sub-standard front and rear lights that have all of the

illuminating power of a guttering votive candle. Running through stop signs and signal-controlled crosswalks containing pedestrians is a constant problem. Cycling is not a safe activity and unfortunately bad things happen to those who ride them everyday. Can’t we just tell the cycling lobbyists they have to ‘play safe’, too? Chris Belfontaine

Sound advice about your hearing

Answers to your questions about hearing loss and hearing aids What is the smallest hearing aid? Until recently, when people talked about “invisible” hearing aids, they were really talking about the CIC style of aid, which is an acronym for “completely-in-canal.” Although it was a very discreet option (relative to other styles), it wasn’t truly invisible. In the past few years, however, a few pioneers in the hearing aid industry have introduced a new style of hearing aid, the IIC. IIC is an acronym for “invisible-in-canal,” and it really is true to its name. The IIC style is now the smallest, most discreet style hearing aid that can be worn, and when properly fit, is 100 per cent invisible, meaning, it can’t even be seen if you are looking for it. Although IICs are incredibly discreet, there are a few drawbacks. Most significantly,

they are not a good option for everyone. At the present time, they are only a viable option for mild to moderate hearing losses- they just aren’t strong enough for severe or profound losses (though that may soon change). For people with more severe hearing loss who want a discreet solution, Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) hearing aids present a good option. RICs include a tiny device that fits hidden behind the ear sending sounds to the ear through a virtually undetectable tube that runs into the ear canal.

iven the incredible distractions at Toronto City Hall, it is no surprise that three major pieces of the city’s budget presented last week were virtually ignored. Yet we ought to pay attention, since each one impacts us directly. The water treatment budget requested a nine per cent rate increase. Solid waste is asking taxpayers for a three per cent increase. The Parking Authority proposes to remit less to the city even though it forecasts greater revenue. In normal times any of these three demands would be the subject of spirited debate that might conclude with a compromise acceptable for the paying public and workable for city goals. Unfortunately, these are not normal times. Distractions caused by the mayor’s associates, his own behaviour, the threat of managing alone and resolutions to strip the mayor of some of his powers have all turned our attention away from critical issues. Worse, even if the mayor wanted to act on reducing

david soknacki beyond the headlines the cost of government, for which these three budgets allow him excellent opportunity, his position is now so weakened he cannot do so. Those who think that the mayor’s power is enshrined in legislation see only a small part of his power. By far the largest portion is his influence on appointments, his recommendations on the pace of legislation with bureaucrats and the ability of his staff to negotiate with individual councillors. Consider two examples from his predecessors. Despite being the butt of jokes, mayor Mel Lastman and his staff knew how to work the informal city hall system. The proof was in his success in convincing council to approve the use of an abandoned mine as a landfill. His victory is more notable since it occurred during the run-up to an municipal election and in the face of strong opposition.

On the other hand, in his second term mayor David Miller relied too much on his legislative powers, and came within one vote of losing approval for new taxes. As the events of the last few weeks have made clear, our mayor is even less inclined to work with individual councillors. If his opponents are emboldened to threaten his own office, then the mayor does not have the ability to challenge the budgets as they come forward. This is troubling for the city, since we have a foretaste of oncoming difficulties. Obviously the water, solid waste and parking budgets already presented need a firm hand. If the mayor wants to act on his signature issue of minding expenditures, he will need to reach out, not go it alone. Only by presenting a skilful mix of direction, conciliation and a firm hand, will he be able to achieve his budget target. David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief.

INFLUENZA VACCINATION DAY

love dropping by the local rinks to catch kids’ minor hockey. There’s always a good buzz the moment you walk inside the arena, particularly for AAA games. I was in Westwood Arena on the weekend and bumped into a couple of long-time scouts, Hank and Vinny, leaning over the railing. They were in an animated debate over a player Vinny had been talking up all morning. Hank: “Come on, man. You think I just fell off a turnip truck? You really expect me to believe the kid is a combination of Crosby and McDonald? “ Vinny: “No, I don’t. You left out Gilmour, man. You keep forgetting Gilmour.” Hank: “So, you’re saying Crosby, McDonald AND Gilmour?” Vinny: “Yes!” Hank: “Until sanity sets in, man. Would you listen to yourself? Every year some poor kid is subjected to enormous hype. The

BUT SERIOUSLY

rumour spreads through the hockey community like a brush fire and when you finally see him on the ice he can’t even generate enough of a spark to light a cigarette for Mini-Me.” Vinny: “Mini-Me smokes? No wonder he’s so short.” Hank: “It was an analogy, noodlebrain. I don’t know if he smokes.” Vinny: “Boy, I sure hope he doesn’t. A lot of people look up to him, you know?” Hank: “Who the heck looks up to Mini-Me? He’s, like, three feet tall. And quit trying to change the subject. This ain’t about him. This is about this combination Crosby, McDonald and Gilmour nonsense.” Vinny: “It ain’t nonsense. He’s playing at Chesswood Arena tomorrow. If you don’t believe me, you can come with me and check him out for yourself.”

Hank: “Maybe I will.” Vinny: “Will you just accept the possibility that his guy is all I say he is and get off my case already? I have no reason to lie. My reputation is on the line here.” Hank: “You really are serious, aren’t you?” Vinny: “Never been more serious about anything in my life. Now can we just shut the lid on this kid once and for all and go back to watching this game?” Hank: “OK. OK. You’ve sold me.” Vinny: “Finally. Lord have mercy.” Hank: “Man, oh man. So, it’s true then after all. A combination Crosby, McDonald AND Gilmour. Wow. This I gotta see.” Vinny: “Of course, I’m referring to Bing Crosby, Ronald McDonald and Happy Gilmore. Gotcha.”

Councillor to help establish unloading zone, time >>>from page 1 as volunteers stacked more than $4,000 of food donations from the two local grocers. “Oh my goodness, yes. I’m very happy, very happy.” The story of how Sunny Foodmart and the Asian Food Centre came to donate to the Jamestown Food Bank begins and ends with Const. Bill Vollmar, a community response officer out of 23 Division. He was out patrolling in the area one day not too long ago, he said, when he saw a group of seniors hauling boxes from their cars down the street. When he approached the group to figure out what was going on, he said he was surprised to learn of the food bank’s existence – hidden as it is amongst the Toronto Community Housing units at 246 Jamestown Cres. “Apparently it’s been here for years, but I had no idea until that day,” he said. “So after that, I started coming here with some of my team

from the crew, and we’ve been helping unload on delivery days ever since.” It was while hauling boxes, Vollmar added, that he noticed that some deliveries were lighter than others. And it was upon learning of those among the food bank’s 350 client families that sometimes have to be turned away due to food shortages that Vollmar said he and his partner, Const. Jag Dhillon, decided to do some outreach to local grocers on the food bank’s behalf. Both Dhillon and Vollmar were on hand Tuesday to happily help unload the fruits of that labour – more than $2,000 worth of food donations from each Sunny Foodmart and the Asian Food Centre. “Bill, he came into the store and asked me to help. I called head office and my boss was very happy and said ‘we must do this, we must help,’” explained William Chu, store manager of the

Sunny Foodmart. “It’s a simple story, but very heartwarming.” Added Mejor Natt, owner of the Asian Food Centre: “Any way we can help the community...the needy people need their food, so I’m very happy to do this community service for the community.” Also on site at the Jamestown Food Bank to watch the beginnings of their new partnership with the two local grocers was Etobicoke North Coun. Vincent Crisanti. “It’s a remarkable day when

we have a community come together the way this one has, and when we have businesses that are so generously giving back to the community,” he said. “This food bank is an amazing food bank that offers so much service to this community that is quite needed.” For his part, Crisanti was commissioned by Vollmar

and Dhillon to see that the curb directly in front of 246 Jamestown Cres. remain clear on delivery days, so that volunteers no longer have to unload the weekly delivery of skids of food from the North York Harvest and Second Harvest from way down the street. Crisanti said he’s set to bring the matter to an upcom-

ing meeting of the Etobicoke York Community Council, where he’ll petition his fellow west-end councillors to approve parking restrictions along Jamestown Crescent during the food bank’s delivery hours. Tuesday’s team of volunteer unloaders also included several from the local faith community – including parishioners from Toronto West Seventh Day Adventist, who have vowed to regularly send groups to help on delivery days, and Pastor Al Bowen of the Abundant Life Assembly, who lauded Vollmar and Dhillon for their commitment to the community. “This is just awesome, and the officers themselves facilitated the whole thing – because they’re here, because they know there’s an issue, and because they care,” he said.

Coyote sighting prompts reminder on how to protect yourself, pets CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Anita was walking her Labradoodle, Roxie, along Glenellen Drive in Etobicoke recently, when a large red coyote ran right by her at full speed. “It was beautiful and very healthy looking with long hair – almost like a large fox,” she said, estimating the coyote weighed upwards of 70 pounds. In the days since, the Etobicoke resident said she’s had two more run-ins with the same coyote – once down by the Old Mill at the offleash park in Etienne Brule Park, and again last week from across Mimico Creek as she and Roxie were walking along the trail system. In each instance, the coyote ran away without incident, but not before expressing an interest in Roxie.

“It didn’t seem aggressive towards me at all, but I would be concerned for my dog,” Anita said. “It’s a big animal, and it’s really healthy looking. There have been a bunch of missing cat posters in the area lately, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if (the coyote) is why.” According to the City of Toronto’s Animal Services, coyotes are curious animals that are shy and non-confrontational by nature and who often look for secluded locations along stream banks and ravines – like those along the Mimico Creek and Humber River in Etobicoke – to use for their dens. While coyotes can live close to humans and rarely be seen, the Animal Services online fact sheet says most sightings occur just after dawn or before dusk when coyotes hunt. For those who, like Anita, often walk in

areas, the following safety tips are advised: n carry a personal audible alarm to deter coyotes and bring attention to yourself in case help is needed n carry a bright flashlight (bright light has been known to deter coyotes) n always keep your pet leashed n keep an umbrella in close reach, as opening and closing it has been known to deter coyotes Residents are advised to call 311 if you see a coyote that is approaching dogs or people; exploring a home or building far from a large park or open area; limping or staggering or with paralyzed hind legs; acting confused and attacking non-living objects; or fighting or attacking pets.

If you are approached by a coyote, never run. Make yourself appear larger and shout and clap hands.

Solar co-op project generating renewable energy on Etobicoke rooftop TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com SolarShare’s first solar co-operative project in Toronto is now generating clean, renewable energy. The not-for-profit SolarShare Co-operative completed the community-based solar energy installation recently on the 18,000square-foot roof atop 20 businesses including a bakery, printer and biolab at 32 Goodmark Pl. in the Steeles Avenue West and Hwy. 27 area. The roof has a system capacity of 100 kW, which is enough to power 10 homes. The not-for-profit SolarShare Co-operative pays the building’s board $12,000 a year to rent the roof. Already, more than $2.5 million has been raised by the co-op’s 500plus members. TREC Renewable Energy Co-op founded SolarShare in 2010 to purchase, own and operate solar PV (photovoltaic) installations across the province. In 2002, TREC incubated Windshare, a co-op that owns 50 per cent of the wind turbine at Exhibition Place in Toronto. SolarShare partnered with green energy provider Bullfrog Power, and a group of investors, to sup-

The largest solar co-op project in Etobicoke began generating clean, renewable energy on an 18,000-square-foot rooftop of companies at 32 Goodmark Pl. in north Etobicoke. The SolarShare-Bullfrog Power partnership will sell community-investment shares in the project that earn a five per cent return.

port the capital-intensive development phase of SolarShare’s now 22 renewable energy projects across Ontario. “What’s beautiful about the SolarShare model and partnership between Bullfrog and SolarShare is that we share the same philosophy – offering co-operative bonds to purchasers and having people

sign up for renewable energy,” said Josephine Coombe, Bullfrog vicepresident of sales and marketing. “We believe citizen engagement in renewable energy is definitely a very powerful tool to effect positive change in an energy system.” The co-op’s community bonds can be purchased for a minimum investment of $1,000 to a maxi-

mum $100,000 to anyone in Ontario for a one-time $40 membership. Investors earn a five per cent return on five-year bonds. The Goodmark project has about $200,000 in community bonds left to raise, SolarShare reported. “Community participation is the crucial difference between Goodmark and the typical Ontario renewable energy project,” said SolarShare co-founder and president Mike Brigham. “Citizens who are eager to promote green energy, but may not have the means or the rooftop to install their own projects, can pool their resources and finance community projects, earning a financial return from project revenue.” The project will be paid at a rate of 71 cents per kilowatt hour produced through a 20-year feed-in tariff agreement with the Ontario Power Authority. Canada’s feed-in tariff program pays fixed, above-market rates for power from wind and solar projects. But to qualify for the rates, developers must build sizeable projects to attract sufficient capital to build them. “When we finally get the projects done, we take out long-term

loans,” Brigham said. “We need to find the money to build projects of sufficient quantity and size to qualify for loans. Lenders prefer to lend $20 million, $40 million, $60 million. We need to be borrowing chunks of $4 to $5 million. We’re small fry.” Developers enter into a contract with the government knowing in advance what they would earn, and what is expected of them. SolarShare’s FIT agreements are 20-year contracts. The model has worked well in Europe. Interest in leveraging the government’s FIT contracts and participating by adding green energy to the electricity grid is ever-growing, Brigham said. In the past month, SolarShare has launched the Goodmark project, its first in the Greater Toronto Area, as well one in Ottawa and another in Moose Creek, between Ottawa and Cornwall, Ont. Currently, SolarShare owns 750kW of solar energy capacity on the grid and is pursuing another 5 MW in previous contracts, bringing its portfolio to more than 10MW on full build-out.

Trustee working to find back-up space for day care >>>from page 1 community consultation and to work with community members to see what can be done,” Kuz said. “The problem is time – we don’t have enough time to have all of these conversations, so we’re asking for a delay.” At issue for the parents of the 193 children currently attending Vincent Massey – 100 of which are subsidized spaces – is the hole that will be left in the community should the centre be forced to vacate when its lease expires in June 2015. Any such closure, the parents council argues, would leave many families scrambling to find quality, affordable day-care spots in a community with limited alternatives. “Many families in Long Branch are working class families that rely on those subsidized spots (at Vincent Massey) to remain productive in the workforce and able to provide for their families,” said Kuz, whose two young children are enrolled in subsidized spaces at Vincent Massey. If granted the delay of sale by the TDSB, the Save Vincent Massey Parent Council is hoping to explore several options to carry out their

mandate. Firstly, Kuz said, members are looking into whether or not the Vincent Massey building could be severed off and retained by the board, while only its surrounding lands are sold off. Another option being explored is having the building’s heritage designation fasttracked, as the site is currently listed on the city’s inventory of heritage properties. “That way, we could at least preserve the building, which may make it less desirable to developers,” he

said. A third option – one that was put to TLC CEO Shirley Hoy at a TDSBhosted community meeting back in October – is the possible addition of a stipulation providing for the provision of continued day-care spaces at Vincent Massey to the conditions of the site’s sale. Etobicoke-Lakeshore Trustee Pamela Gough, meanwhile, has also been spending much of her time of late working on the Vincent Massey file. “It’s my top file,” she told The Guardian Wednesday. “My intention through all of this is to work very hard with the child care centre to ensure that, ultimately, they end up with accommodation that is as good or better than what they have now.” Currently, the Vincent Massey site is being offered up for sale to other public entities, including the French and Catholic school boards, local colleges and universities, and to the municipal, provincial and federal governments – the first in a two-step process the TDSB is mandated by the Ministry of Education to follow in order to sell off surplus schools.

My intention through all of this is to work very hard with the child care centre to ensure that, ultimately, they end up with accommodation that is as good or better than what they have now. – Trustee Pamela Gough

A letter to the above public agencies was sent out in September giving them 90 days (ending Dec. 4) to submit an offer of fair market value on the Vincent Massey site. If after 90 days there’s no interest by any of those public agencies, the TLC will then proceed to the second step and put it on the open market. Gough said that, so far, one local college – representatives from which toured the site on Monday – has expressed interest in Vincent Massey. Although noting it’s still way too

early to speculate, she’s hopeful that should the college choose to purchase on the site, they might consider leasing space to the daycare centre. In the meantime, Gough said she’s been working closely over the last couple of weeks with Vincent Massey officials to explore various possibilities for relocation, should the worst case scenario come to fruition and the day-care centre is forced to vacate come June 2015. “If the building is not available to them, we want to make sure they have something that is as good or better – something in the area where it can be easily accessed by the community and has easy access to the schools. We understand that their families are our families, and their kids are our kids,” she said. “I think there are win-wins to come out of this,” Gough added. “Change is part of community development and my intention is to make sure that the day care lands on its feet.” What do you think?

CONSUMER FEATURE

Life On The Go! On The Go Mimico offers the city’s ONLY residential condominium directly connected to the GO Transit system. You can work and play downtown and return home to your comfy Mimico neighbourhood with the GO station accessible from your lobby.

But that’s not all this trendsetting condominium has to offer. Stunning, contemporary design with unobstructed views of the lake and city, the latest finishing features, large stylish balconies, Italian designed and manufactured gourmet kitchens with CeasarStone countertops, gorgeous backsplashes, stylish stainless steel appliances and one of the most exciting new technologies that will save residents significant money on heating and cooling costs. On The Go Mimico will incorporate Toronto’s first high rise integrated GeoExchange and Cogeneration technology that works with nature to borrow the energy from the earth in the winter and put it back in the summer, redirecting and recycling to where it is needed. In fact residents at On The Go Mimico will save around 30 per cent on utility costs and monthly condo fees because of this progressive and innovative technology. Of course, On The Go Mimico has other important features too – an accessible green roof with BBQs, an eco-carwash, a

pet grooming station, a high tech gym with yoga and Pilates studios and a very hip Party Room. There will also be a gourmet fine food store, espresso and coffee bar, meeting rooms and guest suites to accommodate overnight visitors. Surrounded by the warm and friendly community of Mimico, (identified as Toronto’s top emerging community and one of the ten best places to live in the GTA) residents will enjoy an eclectic variety of shops, bakeries, cafes and restaurants as well as lush parks and lakefront trails. But the big story here is the opportunity to live literally “on the GO” for tens of thousands of dollars less than living in the downtown core. On The Go Mimico is being developed by Stanton Renaissance. The company’s guiding philosophy is to create expertly designed residences with functional living space, constructed without compromise. Stanton Renaissance believes that condominiums should be visually appealing, in harmony with their surroundings and incorporate high tech, environ-

mental and clean elements. To create a fitting Presentation Centre for On The Go Mimico, Stanton Renaissance refurbished Mimico’s circa 1916 CN rail station, located in Coronation Park on Royal York Road. When the Presentation Centre is no longer needed, the company will return the rail station’s interior to its original design and give it back to the community as a historical rail museum. This weekend, make sure to visit the Presentation Centre for the Early-Bird Sales Event. Starting at noon sharp Saturday and Sunday, suites in this stylish condominium will be on sale at exclusive pricing before it opens to the general public. Hot coffee and yummy Italian pastries will be served. People are

asked to bring in food or clothing which will be given to Second Harvest and Covenant House. Attend the Early-Bird Sales Event and get a taste of the incredible opportunity to live in a condominium with all the bells and whistles, less than 15 minutes from Union Station with direct connection to the Mimico GO Station. Early-Bird pricing starts from the mid $200’s. The condominium features 242 suites from 537 sq. ft. to 2,700 sq. ft. including two levels of 11-foot high ceiling penthouses. Register today to get the best selection of suites at the lowest possible cost. Visit www.onthegomimico.com or call 647-692-8417 for more information or to register.

Many children know that Remembrance Day is a solemn time to commemorate soldiers’ achievements and sacrifices and to pay respect to solders who died in battle. But they might not know the significance behind the poppy or why we commemorate on November 11. Here is a brief history of some Remembrance Day traditions to share

with the kids.

Armistice Day Remembrance Day was once known as Armistice Day because it marks the signing of the armistice that put an end to the hostilities of World War I. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year, guns fell silent after

more than four years of continuous warfare between the Germans and Allied troops. The armistice agreement was signed in a French train carriage at 11 a.m.

Remembrance Day evolution Armistice Day was renamed Remembrance Day after World War II to commemorate soldiers from both world wars. It is now used as a way to pay hommage to any fallen soldier. In Canada, Remembrance Day is a statutory holiday in many provinces and territories. Official national ceremonies are held at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. Events begin with the tolling of the Carillon in the Peace Tower, during which members of the Canadian Forces participate and congregate at Confederation Square. Similar ceremonies take place in provincial capitals across the country. Very often moments of silence are offered for lost lives.

What about the poppies? One of the unifying symbols of Remembrance Day is the poppy that is worn to honor lost soldiers. The bold, red color of the flower has become an enduring symbol of those who died so that others may be free. The poppy became a symbol for a specific reason. Some of the most concen-

trated fighting of World War I took place in Flanders, a region inwestern Belgium. As a result of the fighting, most signs of natural life had been obliterated from the region, leaving behind mud and not much else. The only living thing to survive was the poppy flower, which bloomed with the coming of the warm weather the year after fighting in the region had ceased. Poppies grow in disturbed soil and can lie dormant in the ground without germinating. Without the war, they may have never come to the surface. John McCrae, a doctor serving with the Canadian Armed Forces, was moved by the vision of poppies flowering in Flanders and wrote a poem titled “In Flanders Fields.” After the poem was published, it received international acclaim, and the poppy became a popular symbol of those lost in battle. Men traditionally wear the poppy on the left side of the chest, where a military medal would be placed. Women wear it on the right side because that is where a widow would wear her husband’s medals. Remembrance Day is celebrated every year, providing people humbled by the sacrifices of soldiers an opportunity to remember those soldiers’ efforts to secure freedom.

Martha Robinson celebrates 36 years with Dr. Bishai’s dental office Martha Robinson first walked through the doors of the Dr. Sam Misumi’s dental office over 36 years ago— and never looked back. “I was surprised that I got the position at all, considering I went to the wrong location for the interview,” says Martha. “I did eventually find his office. Luckily, Dr. Misumi seemed not to notice that I was late and was hired immediately as his dental assistant.” Martha watched as Dr. Misumi retired from his long and successful career in dentistry

and helped welcome Dr. Bishai who came onboard first as an associate of Dr. Misumi and eventually took over the practice after he retired. “The transition was a seamless one as all his patients were accustomed to being treated like family, which certainly is Dr. Bishai’s main objective as well,” says Martha. Martha admires Dr. Bishai’s dedication to customer service. “Dr. Bishai has always followed a routine of arriving before staff to review charts for the day, whether

Subaru Tourer concept to debut at Tokyo Motor Show The Subaru Levorg concept will make its world premiere at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show. The Levorg concept hints at a new vehicle currently under development for market launch in Japan in 2014.  The name ‘Levorg’ comes from a combination of the words ‘Legacy’, ‘Revolution’ and ‘Touring’, and the concept will blend the practicality of

a tourer and the stylish design and feel of a sports car. The Levorg will also feature an allnew 1.6-litre horizontally opposed Boxer engine with direct injection turbo (DIT) technology.  The Subaru-developed engine is designed to offer smooth performance and greater environmental efficiency.  The new engine will also be

on show on the Subaru motor show stand as a technology exhibit. The Levorg sports tourer prototype will be joined on the Subaru show stand by another new concept vehicle called the Crossover 7 concept, a seven-seat SUV designed to combine the rigours of urban family use with true off-road driving capability. – Metroland Media

SAY HELLO TO

Miss Popularity “Is the Stingray available?� a voice piped up at the key station. “No, it’s not,� I muttered to myself with a grin as I wound my way back through the lineup and out of the door, Corvette key clutched firmly in hand. There always seems to be one car in hot demand during the annual test sessions of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) Car of the Year TestFest. It’s the car that testers stand in line for, adding their names to sign-up sheets just to ensure they get a chance to drive it. And this year, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe seemed to be an overwhelming favourite for the Miss Popularity crown, not to mention a slew of potential technology kudos, design honours and other possible awards. The new Stingray starts with an all-new aluminum frame that is 45 kg (99 pounds) lighter and 57 per cent stiffer, complemented by lightweight materials throughout the car – a carbon fibre hood and roof panels, underbody panels created with carbonnano composites and Sheet Molded Compound fenders, doors, rear quarter panels

and rear hatch panel, all weighing less than previous generation components. Manufacturing techniques and technologies from the Corvette Racing program have blended those elements into an ideal 50/50 weight balance primed to deliver world-class power-to-weight ratios better than the Porsche 911 Carrera or Audi R8. Delivering the other half of that powerto-weight equation is a new 6.2-litre V8 harnessing 455 hp and 460 lb/ft of torque. This is the most powerful standard Corvette engine ever, making about 50 lb/ft more low-end torque than the previous 6.2-litre engine and matching some of the numbers from the bigger 7.0-litre LS7 engine that powered the upscale 2013 Corvette Z06. Stab the start button and the V8 awakes with a growling snarl emanating from the engine and quad exhausts. The sevenspeed manual comes with a throttle-blipping, Active Rev Matching system but an optional six-speed automatic with remote start and paddle-shifters ($1,420) is available for the stick shift challenged.

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe, resplendent in Velocity Yellow Tintcoat, renewed and re-engineered inside and out

You might not expect an Eco mode in a performance thoroughbred like the Stingray, but it is just one of five performance settings, including Weather, Tour, Sport and Track, available on the cockpit-mounted Driver Mode Selector. And turning that rotary knob affects everything from engine and exhaust performance to gauge cluster configurations, throttle sensitivity, steering assist effort, magnetic ride control, traction control and performance traction management, launch control and a long list of other dynamic driving parameters. The steering is smooth as silk. The shifter snicks effortlessly through the gears. And

this new Corvette outperforms all of its ancestors with the assurance and nimble handling of a true sports car. And, not only has the Stingray improved its dynamic performance, it has been refreshed inside and out. A new interior treatment offers genuine carbon fibre and aluminum trim pieces, microsuede trim, hand-wrapped Napa leather upholstery, dual eight-inch configurable driver/infotainment screens, GT touring seats or sport seats, and fit and finish levels comparable to any luxury performer on the market. The aeronautically inspired cockpit features crisp, clear graphic displays on high-

def, configurable screens - one on the centre stack, the other behind a smaller, more compact steering wheel. And a colour HUD display complements the two multi-configurable eight-inch display panels. The 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe ($52,745), available in three trim levels and a variety of options and performance packages, is arriving at Canadian dealers now but you might expect a six-month wait due to popularity. And the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible ($58,245) will follow sometime early next year. – Rob Beintema Metroland Media

T h e G r e a t e r To r o n t o CivicAction Alliance has launched a new campaign in support of its Your 32 initiative, highlighting the many benefits of funding public transit. Available at the group’s website, CivicAction’s list of 32 reasons claims betterfunded transit will boost job creation, increase quality of life and improve civic pride, among other things. The campaign appropriately runs for 32 days, ending Dec. 2 with a call to the Wynne Liberals to include more transit funding in the 2014 spring provincial budget.

Some budding East York artists have commenced work on a mural to go up along the construction hoardings surrounding Woodbine Station. Young Artists in Transit sought community feedback for the mural which will feature images inspired by the history of the Danforth. The artists also consulted with Toronto’s official poet laureate George Elliott Clarke. The mural will adorn Woodbine hoardings starting next year, when the TTC begins renovations, which includes the construction of an additional station exit. The work is expected to be completed in 2016. Rahul Gupta is the Guardian’s transit reporter. His column appears every Thursday. On Twitter: @TOinTRANSIT

Advisory panel says ‘Big Move’ could still be modified RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com A report from an advisory panel convened by the premier to examine transit-focused taxes and fees says Metrolinx’s Big Move plan could be further modified. The Transit We Need, the new report from the Transit Investment Strategy Advisory Panel, suggests elements of The Big Move – which aims to build over 100-kilometres of new transit connections across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area over 25 years – may require “strategic modifications� due to the financial constraints of the provincial Liberals. “As a result of both changing conditions and emerging priorities, the Panel does not view The Big Move as written in stone,� states the report, listing a number of factors such as a provincial stimulus plan in the wake of a worldwide economic recession that created a higher provincial budget deficit, and the need to

tie infrastructure construction to job creation. The 13-member panel was named by Premier Kathleen Wynne in September to look into the feasibility of implementing proposed transit fees by Metrolinx as a part of an Investment Strategy to raise two billion dollars annually from so-called revenue tools until the Big Move is com-

pleted. The panel’s latest report, which was released Oct. 31, comes after an announcement the province will issue “green bonds� to fund transit construction, which will be part of an upcoming economic update to be announced in November. Unlike the revenue estimates from Metrolinx, the report calls for money raised to cover not just capital construction but all associated costs, including ongoing maintenance. Metrolinx has already released a list of priority transit projects to complete as part of the $50-billion plan, including a new relief subway line for Toronto. Former Toronto chief planner Paul Bedford, one of the panel’s co-chairs, said a future relief subway line could potentially extend in a “big U� stretching past the 416-area code and into the 905 in order to take advantage of employment there. “There’s about 40 million square feet of office space out-

side the city of Toronto and the opportunity to connect all that is powerful in terms of two-way ridership, not just everyone heading to the downtown core,� said Bedford on Wed Oct. 30.

The report also states dividing the completion of The Big Move into “digestible phases� would reduce the pressure for funding as well as allow the province to take advantages of technological innova-

tions. The panel is expected to release an additional report before making final recommendations to the premier in December.

Women’s hockey returns to MasterCard Centre

Obstruction

Etobicoke-based Toronto Furies host Calgary Inferno NORM NELSON nnelson@insidetoronto.com

Photo/PETER C. MCCUSKER

You’re in my space: Etobicoke goaltender Daniel De Ponte tries to clear Parkdale forward Ben Anderson from the front of his net during bantam hockey action at Gord and Irene Risk Arena last Thursday evening.

The MasterCard Centre in south Etobicoke will once again host the best women’s hockey league in the world – although many of the league’s best players won’t be suiting up in the league this season. The Toronto Furies will kick off its Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) regular season this Saturday, Nov. 9, 8 p.m., hosting the Calgary Inferno. For those that can’t make it out to the game the league has advised the game will be one of a select few throughout the season that will be available for viewing live online for free. Details are available on the league’s website. The Furies’ rather unusual schedule then has them on the road for seven games through to mid-December when they will embark on an eight-game home stand. The five-team league

also includes the Brampton Thunder, Montreal Stars and Boston Blades. But the league, this year, will be playing without its Canadian stars who have been centralized by the national team in Calgary to prepare for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. For the Etobicoke-based Furies they lose one of the game’s biggest stars in Olympic gold medalist Tessa Bonhomme, who famously became the first female hockey player to star on CBC’s popular Battle of the Blades winning it. The reality sports show, which matches former figure stating stars with former hockey stars, is again being filmed out of the MasterCard Centre. Also centralized from the Furies this season are national team members Rebecca Johnston, Jennifer Wakefield and Natalie Spooner. The above mentioned players occupied four of the top

five scorers on the team last season, accounting for more than half of the team’s scoring (56 per cent). Last year’s top five Furies scorers were as follows: Johnston 25, Spooner 23, Mallory Deluce 20, Wakefield 18 and Bonhomme nine. The next top point-getter only had five points. That leaves Deluce as the only offensive threat returning from last year’s squad and the team will be hoping for help from a couple of sources, including Carolyne Prevost coming to Toronto from Montreal – basically to further her education – where she contributed 15 points last year. And also from this year’s draft picks, including: • Katie Wilson, second overall, who closed out her U.S. College career with the University of Minnesota Duluth with 102 points; • Holly Carrie-Mattimoe, seventh overall, who proved herself a capable NCAA

Division I scorer with Syracuse University, compiling 26 points in her final year; • and Jessica Vella, 17th overall, who contributed 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) in 36 games during her last season with Providence College. Her speed is a particularly unique asset as it is the one major attribute that was lacking amongst the Furies top six forwards last season. Junior The MasterCard Centre is also home to the province’s best league for junior-aged players. The Etobicoke Dolphins’ next game in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) at the MasterCard Centre is Saturday, Nov. 16, 1:15 p.m. More on the PWHL at pwhl. pointstreaksites.com More on the CWHL at http://www.cwhl.ca

Police warn seniors of telephone scams Families encouraged to keep open communication with elderly CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Earlier this fall Janet Murphy received a telephone call informing her that she was the lucky winner of a multimillion-dollar jackpot. What followed was an increasingly troubling series of phone conversations that escalated from a request for her bank account information, to a list of elaborate instructions in order to claim her prize, to a shocking threat on her life when she ultimately refused all of her callers’ demands. “The last call was from someone telling me I must claim my prize, and since they had my telephone number and address, they would send someone to kill me,” she said, noting that she reported the exchange to her local police division immediately after being threatened.

Const. Wendy Drummond said while scams such as the lottery hoax very rarely get to the point of threats, all suspicious unsolicited telephone exchanges where personal information and/or money are requested should be immediately reported to the police. “The bottom line is, there isn’t any type of company or program or charity or lottery that is going to be giving anything away out of the blue. So the big thing is to ensure that you never, ever give any personal information away. Anyone who calls you asking for that type of information when you haven’t initiated it, that’s not how it works,” she said, urging people to never give anyone who calls unsolicited any banking information – such as name of bank, account numbers or credit card information – or personal information – such as date

Don’t give out personal information to anyone you don’t know, warn police.

of birth, home address, next of kin, or social insurance number. While such scams are often difficult to trace and prosecute , Drummond said it’s important to report all instances to police so that they can keep track of the calls and build a case to help identify the criminals behind them. “A lot of these scams are under-reported, especially with seniors,” she added. “Often, seniors don’t want their

family to know that they’ve been vulnerable and they don’t want anyone to think they’re no longer capable of handling themselves.” Another common scams is called the grandparent or nephew scam. According to a recent public safety alert issued by Toronto Police Services, perpetrators of this type of scam will often obtain critical information about their prey from obituaries and social media – family information

they then use to convince the senior that they are a relative (most commonly a grandchild) in desperate need of money. Victims of the grandparent scam are then instructed by the caller to send money via a wire transfer, such as Western Union or Money Gram. While the amount of money requested and handed over varies with the scam, Drummond said the results are often devastating for the elderly person scammed no matter how small the sum. “When you’re dealing with seniors, even a smaller value may be a life’s savings for some,” she said. Another common scam targeted at seniors is the home repair and renovation sham. “In that case, someone comes to your door and says ‘hey, I was working on your neighbour’s house and while I was up there I was able to see your roof. I felt I had to come and tell you, because your roof’s going to cave in on you any day unless you fix

it,’” Drummond said of the con artist’s modus operandi. “The senior, of course, has no way of getting up on the roof and verifying the damage, so they agree to have the person ‘fix’ their roof.” The crook will then climb up and hammer around a bit, giving the illusion that they’re fixing the senior’s roof, when in reality no repairs are being done. In the end, they collect a big pay cheque – for nothing. “If you have someone in your life who is older, talk to them about these scams. You don’t want to take away all of their responsibilities in their own home, but ensure that you have communication. Talk to them and find out if they talked to anybody during the day. If they mention any suspicious phone calls, get as much information as you can to see what is happening,” she said.

MADD launches its annual Red Ribbon campaign ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com In 2008, Angeliki Souranis’ 20-yearold son Craig was killed in an alcohol-related crash. As a tribute to him, Souranis shared her story Tuesday, following the launch of the annual Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Red Ribbon campaign. Souranis, now the president of MADD Canada, said Craig was a passenger in a van driven by an inexperienced young driver who had been drinking. “He crashed the van. My son was ejected, and the van landed on him, killing him instantly,” she said. “I had always told my son about drinking and driving, and I should’ve also stressed getting into a car with an impaired driver.” Souranis said the “profound grief” she and her family have gone through is difficult to explain. “The person that I was did not survive.” Police, fire and EMS personnel gathered at Toronto police headquarters to kick off the campaign, which runs until Jan. 6. As part of the initiative, volun-

teers will distribute millions of red ribbons to attach to vehicles, key chains, purses and backpacks as a

reminder to drive sober. “I want all of the people in our city to understand the importance

of this campaign to bring greater awareness to the need to keep our roadways safe,” Toronto police Chief

Bill Blair said. De p u t y E M S C h i e f C i n d y Nicholson said the devastation caused by drunk drivers stays with first responders. “I certainly saw some of those awful tragedies and when you finish dealing with the patient, then you’ve got the collateral damage of the family,” she said. “It’s horrific to watch them come into the hospital and realize that their loved one is gone.” Nicholson said she still has memories of an alcohol-related crash she responded to as a paramedic in the late 1980s that took the life of a child. Pointing to a poster with photos of hundreds of people who have lost their lives to drunk drivers, Souranis said: “It saddens me to no end to know that our sadness is multiplied hundreds and thousands of times.” Souranis stressed it’s a choice to drive impaired. “It’s a choice, and you are risking not only your own life but all those around you,” she said. “MADD is not against drinking. All we want is for people to think ahead, to plan ahead.”

United effort needed to eliminate youth violence: report CLARK KIM ckim@insidetoronto.com The lack of collective action is what makes youth violence such a resilient issue in the city, suggested a report that was launched Monday. “It’s not a lack of trying. It’s not a lack of engagement,” said Lekan Olawoye, executive director of For Youth Initiative, who co-chaired the taskforce that worked on the report titled From Analysis to Action: A Collective Approach to Eliminate Youth Violence in Toronto. “We know the work is happening, but we know the work is not happening together. Above all else, we cannot do this in isolation.” T h e Yo u t h A n t i - V i o l e n c e Taskforce was convened by For Youth Initiative last November and consists of members including Deputy Police Chief Peter Sloly, Transamerica Life Canada president and CEO Doug Brooks, and special advisor and former Toronto mayor David Miller. Olawoye presented the findings in front of stakeholders representing different sectors of society, which the report called on to work in col-

laboration with each other. They include representatives from the government, community agencies, city and faith leaders, and the private sector. It identified four key areas that youth require to avoid violence and crime: reducing social isolation,

educational attainment, employment opportunities, and family wellbeing. “All four need to be seen in the life of a young person,” Olawoye said. “We see youth violence does not happen senselessly and without reason.”

He added that according to police data, the homicide rate in Toronto has remained steady over the past 30 years. The difference, however, is that serious forms of violence such as homicide and aggravated assault increasingly involve youth and, in particular, young racialized

males. To begin addressing the issue, Olawoye noted the need to develop “shared metrics” that can be tracked across programs looking to reduce youth violence. “That’s the next conversation. It’s meticulous but it’s doable,” said Olawoye, explaining that having shared metrics will provide clarity in where they need to go to resolve the systemic issue of youth violence. “There are a lot of people doing different things.” Raj Kothari, managing partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, who co-chaired the taskforce alongside Olawoye, added the next step is to work together to come up with an agenda and timetable for their action plan. As a representative from the private sector, Kothari also emphasized the need for businesses to get involved. “Businesses can’t work in isolation,” he said. “Business people need to learn how to give back. We believe this is an important issue that needs to be dealt with...because it impacts all of us.” To read the full report online, visit http://bit.ly/1gprpoN
