CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Dozens of volunteers spent countless hours late last week sorting 40,000 pounds of donated hockey gear destined for First Nations youth in six northern Ontario reserves. Collected as part of Rotary Etobicoke’s Second Annual Hockey Equipment Drive, the gently used children and youth’s skates, helmets, gloves, shoulder pads, elbow pads, shin pads, neck protectors, hockey pants, jerseys, goalie gear, socks, sticks and other miscellaneous hockey gear weighed in at more than 18 tonnes - 25 times more than the equipment collected in the drive’s inaugural year.

Over 50 Years of Service to Our Community

IN BRIEF

Top thinkers wanted to solve problems

Kipling Chapel

Some of Ontario’s top innovators and creative minds are invited to weigh in with solutions to problems facing Ontario, with leading thinkers as determined by a panel of judges earning the Lieutenant Governor’s Visionaries Prize. Lieutenant Governor of Ontario Elizabeth Dowdeswell and the Walrus Foundation announced the competition on Jan. 6, and those 18 years of age and over are urged to suggest ideas to tackle problems regarding governance, environmen-

tal stewardship, social cohesion, reconciliation, inclusive prosperity, and scientific and technological innovation. The Visionaries Prize competition is being supported by the provincial government through its Ontario150 program, an offshoot of Canada’s sesquicentennial. Submissions should take a long-range look at improving the lives of Ontarians over the next 150 years by tackling some of the deepest challenges the province faces. "Disruptive technolo-

gies. Political detachment. Poverty, water shortages and food insecurity. These are just some of the potential challenges facing us in the coming years. To achieve a world that works for everyone will require bold and creative ideas," Dowdeswell said. Submissions are due March 6, with finalists selected and invited to present their ideas at a series of events in September. To enter, or for more details, visit, www.thewalrus.ca/LGvisionariesprize.

TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com A 7.5 metre, solid granite cenotaph in search of a new home in New Toronto is a sign of the times for the Royal Canadian Legion. The massive monument, donated by the community, has stood in remembrance of lives lost in front of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 3 on Eighth Street since 1983. Recently, branch 3 closed its doors, the latest victim of declining legion membership. It merged with Branch 210 on Jutland Road, but there is no space to accommodate the memorial. "It’s going to be very costly to move, it’s huge," said Bill Bouchard, president of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 3. "I’ve met with both Councillor Mark Grimes and EtobicokeLakeshore MPP James Maloney and we’re working on it together to find a suitable place to put it in the area where the public can access it without it blocking a major artery." For three-plus decades, veterans, legionnaires and members of the public have gathered annually at the large cenotaph to remember Canadians fallen in war on the Sunday before Remembrance Day, and on Nov. 11. Today, there are fewer than 200 members at each of the legion branches, Bouchard said. "Legions at one time had 1,000, 1,500 members. Now, a lot of legions are down to

Bill Bouchard, president of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 3, stands before the legion’s 25-foot-tall granite cenotaph. Legion Branch 3 is merging with Legion Branch 210 due to dwindling membership. a couple hundred members," Bouchard said. "Older vets die and younger people don’t want to join. Membership is declining." A deal with a developer to purchase Branch 3 and pay to move the memorial fell through, Maloney and Grimes said. "The best thing would be if the property actually sold and the developer agreed to pay to relocate the cenotaph," Maloney said. "I think a spot along the lakeshore would be fantas-

tic. It would be not only accessible, but a visible reminder for people." Meanwhile, city parks staff is investigating suitable, publicly accessible locations for the monument. "It’s very important to keep this cenotaph in New Toronto," Grimes said. "Long Branch has their cenotaph; Mimico has theirs. We’re looking for a permanent home for the monument, which memorializes the great men and women of New Toronto who sacrificed their lives."

The Rotary Club of Toronto West will recognize Canada’s first female astronaut with its Lifetime Achievement Award next month. Dr. Roberta Bondar will receive the honour in person at the Etobicoke-based Rotary club’s 18th Annual Youth Impact Awards Gala at The Old Mill, 21 Old Mill Road, on Friday, Jan. 27. "Her intense love of learning and sharing, so deeply ingrained from her youth, and her ongoing commitment to rejuvenate and strengthen society, has positively impacted generations of Canadians," Rotary organizers said in a statement, noting that Bondar is being recognized for her accomplishments in the fields of space medicine, fine art photography, environment education and volunteerism. "She is a continuous role model for youth and is truly one of Canada’s great heroes." Bondar, who spent more than a decade as NASA’s head of space medicine, became the first neurologist in space when she joined the space shuttle Discovery mission in January 1992. The Rotary Lifetime

More than 250 guests are expected to be on hand at The Old Mill on Jan. 27 when Bondar, as well as five other honorees, are recognized at this year’s Youth Impact Awards. Every year, the annual gala sees the Rotary Club of Toronto West recognize individuals in the following categories who have made a significant impact in the community and around the world to "Ignite the Potential in Youth": individual under 18; individual under 25; individual award;

business award; and community service. Event Chair Brian Spencer said the annual gala also acts as the Rotary Club of Toronto West’s main fundraiser, with proceeds from this year’s event benefiting the Roberta Bondar Foundation, as well as the club’s local and international youth initiatives. "Our primary objective is to support youth at risk, both globally and within Canada in our own local communities," Spencer said, encouraging Etobicoke residents to attend the gala. "It’s always a fun event. A person can have a nice, enjoyable evening knowing the proceeds of the gala go to helping youth in the community. We’re a notfor-profit organization and what we earn goes back into the community at large." The 18th Annual Youth Impact Awards Gala evening will kick off on Friday, Jan. 27 with the opening of the silent auction at 5:30 p.m. The evening will also include dinner at 7 p.m. sharp, a special talk by Bondar, music, raffle draws for five theme baskets stuffed with gifts, and the inspiring stories of each award recipient.

ABOUT US

Toronto police reform ushered in with hope, skepticism The City of Toronto is preparing for some substantial changes on a number of fronts. Budget consultations are underway and residents are signing up by the dozen to appeal to decision-makers to maintain funding for programming. Toronto Council is considering some new revenue tools to provide some of that funding, with road tolls, a hotel tax and very possibly more in place. And then there’s policing. Change has been very slow to manifest itself within the ranks of the Toronto Police Service (TPS). There is indication that some is on the way. In an interview with crime reporter Andrew Palamarchuk this week, Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders outlines what some of those changes will look like: removing crossing guard responsibilities from TPS and amalgamating various police divisions among them. A report on modernizing the force is finally bringing about the change we’ve wanted to see for a long time from police who have a reputation for heel dragging when it comes to reform and economy. The chief describes this change as "exponential" on the one hand. On the other, he makes it clear that it won’t happen overnight. Forgive us for wishing that it would. It would have been nice, for instance, to see the controversial carding policy change more quickly. Changes have finally come into effect, on Jan. 1. Information from past carding interactions – targeting a group consisting disproportionately of young black men – will now be more difficult to access. Critics arguing that the information should simply be deleted are persuasive. It’s been slow going on this issue – under both Saunders and his predecessor Bill Blair. The Toronto Police Services Board, headed by Mayor John Tory, hasn’t done much to accelerate matters. Will Toronto’s police service be any quicker to implement the "exponential change" that Saunders insists is coming? It’s tough not to be skeptical, but it would be unduly cynical not to be hopeful. We are in a time of change in the governance of our city. Money is tight. Our leaders have made expensive choices to spend what we’ve got in areas other than policing. Toronto’s police service will have to adapt to that change, and it’s got a blueprint as to how to do so. It remains to be seen whether its leadership is also seized by the urgency. We hope that it is.

Are hookah bars really a health threat? Is there a limit to what the City of Toronto can do to keep you safe? Karim Raja Fallah and Maher Hamarneh think so. Both own hookah lounges where customers - mostly young men, but people of all ages - smoke herbal mixtures called shisha through water pipes. The city says that’s unhealthy. It banned hookah use in all licensed places, and only a case to be heard at Ontario’s Appeal Court stands between such businesses and what their owners believe is financial ruin. Lounge owners say they make 90 per cent of their money through shisha. So, the city’s ban is like going to a store selling only cheese, and banning cheese, Fallah says. Yes, shisha smoking is a

There are bars, marijuana dispensaries, and doughnut shops aplenty in Toronto. Fallah says that’s fine. "If a person is an adult, they can do what they want." Before the ban, the city’s health department report-

ed shisha smoking was growing more popular among young Torontonians, but few were aware of the health risks. Owners, including Hamarneh, believe benefits of such businesses as social spots outweigh whatever harm is done by smoke. Hookah bars have clustered in commercial areas such as East Danforth and Wexford Heights in Scarborough - with a Middle Eastern flavour. The ban is set to deliver them an economic wallop. "This is our culture. And you believe in multiculture? It’s not multiculture, it’s favouritism," Harmarneh says. Years ago, the city banned sales and possession of shark fins - a status food at Chinese weddings -

in part because shark fins had an "adverse impact" on Torontonians’ health. While the worldwide loss of sharks is catastrophic, a judge in decided in 2012 that it wasn’t a municipal issue and threw the ban out. He noted people appealing the fin ban argued it was "a gratuitous insult to the dignity of the Chinese community," since the city hadn’t banned "any other food or clothing products enjoyed by any other ethnic groups." Dozens of Toronto businesses now hope for a similar reprieve. Edges of Toronto is a column about how people see life in Toronto differently, depending on where they live.

HISTORY CORNER

The Long Branch Hotel had ’speaking tubes’ in every room DENISE HARRIS denise.harris@sympatico.ca When we think of summer resorts in Ontario today, we might contemplate Muskoka, Haliburton, or Algonquin Park. But in the late 1800s, people from Toronto thought of Long Branch in Etobicoke. In 1883, James and Martha Eastwood sold an estimated 64 acres (26 hectares) of land south of Lakeshore Road (now Lake Shore Blvd. W.) and centred on Long Branch Avenue, to a consortium that planned to subdivide it into 250 villa lots where the well-off could build summer cottages. In 1886, Thomas J. Wilkie, who

had held leadership positions with the YMCA in Toronto and Brooklyn, was hired to bring the plan to fruition, assisted by his brother John. This project was named "Long Branch Park" after New Jersey’s famous seaside resort. Soon the entire area was known as "Long Branch". The first lot was sold in 1886 to Richard and Amy Ough. Richard was an architect who designed many cottages in the park, including his own which still stands at 262 Lake Prom. By 1887, 20 lots had been sold and the Long Branch Hotel had been erected with Japanesestyle balconies and pagodalike towers, electricity, speaking tubes in every room, and a private telephone line to Toronto. The site was surrounded by a high fence and the entrance gate at Long Branch Ave. was always guarded. Alcoholic bever-

events, a second pavilion where 300 could dine outdoors, a gymnasium, a water slide, a fountain courtyard, and facilities for

swimming, boating, lawn bowling, tennis, croquet, baseball and lacrosse. A long wharf was built to provide dockage for the steamers that offered commuter service to and from Toronto, six days a week. By 1895, streetcars were bringing visitors, and soon after people were arriving in their own cars. Between 1910 and 1920, other developers purchased the land south of Lakeshore Rd. from 23rd Street to Etobicoke Creek, as well as the land north of Lakeshore Rd. between 23rd and 30th Streets. They opened seven more subdivisions, many of which took on the cottagelike feel of Long Branch Park. Long Branch flourished until the 1930s, and then began to decline. Larger cottages were winterized and became yearround homes. The opening of the QEW in 1939 reduced the traffic along

Lakeshore Road. Following severe flooding during hurricane Hazel in 1954, 160 homes on the Etobicoke Creek flood plain were demolished. The once elegant Long Branch Hotel became a rooming house and burned down in 1958. To encourage business, bylaws were changed to allow multi-family dwellings, but many lovely cottages with their elegant trees were demolished and replaced by duplexes. Today, many residents are fighting a new batch of developers who wish to demolish old cottages and replace them with taller semi-detached homes that are changing the character of the neighbourhood irrevocably.

’Exponential change’ coming to Toronto Police Service Chief Mark Saunders says ’community-centric’ policing is his mandate moving forward ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com Toronto’s top cop wants to offload non-core police services like the city’s 600 school crossing guards in a year that is expected to see "exponential change" on the force. Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders said crossing guards shouldn’t be a police issue. "Why are we one of the only police agencies in North America looking after this?" he said in an interview with Metroland Media Toronto. "We have a tremendous amount of schools across the city and getting these boys and girls across the road is important. We’re aware of that, but there are other entities that should be, and could be doing this." Not only are police in charge of crossing guards, officers often fill in for them when the guards are away. "It’s 35 times a day, give or take," Saunders said. Police are also analyzing the types of calls they respond to. "We, on average, go to about two-million calls a year," Saunders said. In 2016, police responded to more calls than the previous year though fewer calls were for an emergency. "We had more of these calls that, to be quite honest, the police might not have been the best resource to go to, so we want to prioritize to see what calls the police should be going to and what shouldn’t we be going to," Saunders said. "Through analytics, we’re going to figure out what those calls are going to look like that we’re not going to. We will be

Saunders says 2017 will see police implementing the recommendations on modernizing the force. embedding members of city hall to work with us to develop a more robust 311 program as well as also utilizing their bylaw officers and any other assets that they can bring to the table so that they will have a more active response." Saunders said his officers spent "over 3,100 reported hours" on the crossing guard file. "The taxpayers look at that and say is that the most effective and efficient way of using highly trained police officers?" But Scarborough-Rouge River Councillor Chin Lee, who is vicechair of the police services board, said city studies have indicated that it’ll be more expensive if the city looks after crossing guards as well as beach life guards, who

"The hourly rates for the programs at the city are higher," he said, suggesting the crossing guards should be offloaded to the school boards because "they are more familiar with the schools than we are." Saunders said 2017 will see "exponential change" as police

begin implementing the recommendations of the final report by the Transformation Task Force on modernizing the force. The final report goes to the police services board Jan. 26. An interim report was released in June followed by public consultations across the city. "Over the next year, you will see us starting to roll out more officers on foot," Saunders said. "The final report will also speak to timelines with some of the initiatives...Every three months, I have to report to my board to say that this report isn’t just a report that is sitting on my shelf; it’s a report that is actually being executed. The public had asked for that, and I will deliver."

The implementation of the recommendations will be made over three years and is expected to save $100 million. "The savings will be coming from the reduction in the number of officers," Lee said. "The final target after these three years would be 4,700 uniform officers. Now, it’s about 5,200." Merging police stations are also in the plans. Saunders said officers typically record their encounters in their memo books and then input the information into a computer at the station. "But our business process is going to be more virtual," he said, adding a component of that could involve e-memo books so officers wouldn’t have to go to stations to input their encounters but do it "right where they are." In that way, stations would become less important. "Crimes do not happen in police stations. Officers will spend more time out on the road," Saunders said. "One of the things we heard at all of the community consultations was they wanted more of a community-centric approach to policing, so we’re going to be policing the neighbourhoods by having more officers on the beat." Lee suggested more stations don’t necessarily mean better policing. He stressed many of the new initiatives will be implemented over three years "so don’t expect things to change overnight." According to Toronto police statistics, shooting occurrences in 2016 were up 41 per cent over the previous year while the number of shooting victims increased by 34 per cent. Saunders said the problem isn’t unique to Toronto. "The answer is not just about enforcement," he added. "It’s about government working with the police to invest in those neighbourhoods that are in need of resources and that are in need of guidance, and I think that is the starting point to success."

12 COMMUNITY

Mimico resident gets Mayor Tory’s ear on ML Ready Mix Mayor’s policy adviser learns community’s concerns about concrete plant TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Some Mimico residents who have fought a neighbouring concrete plant for a decade took a victory lap, of sorts, at Mayor John Tory’s annual winter skating party Sunday in south Etobicoke. Residents had planned to protest Tory’s party at Colonel Samuel Smith Park’s outdoor skating trail. Instead, Tory granted resident Dan Irwin a longsought face-to-face for 10 minutes to discuss the issue. "Mayor Tory asked me a lot of questions," Irwin said of the brief meeting about ML Ready Mix’s operations. Irwin has lived across the street since 1985. "Somebody has got to put a stop to it. If the (planned) protest accom-

plished anything, it piqued Mayor Tory’s interest, and that’s good. If not, at least we tried." On Monday, Irwin met at his home with the mayor’s policy adviser to hear his concerns. Tory’s staffer will then brief the mayor on the long-standing issues between the community and the company. The ML Ready Mix facility is on the south side of Judson Street near the Mimico GO Train station, across from a park, a seniors’ residence and adjacent houses. The pitched battle between company officials and neighbouring residents began in 2007 when the concrete facility began operating. Ministry of the Environment officials have said they learned of the operation the following year. Company officials bought the property in 2002. Initially, it operated as a lumber yard. Irwin and other neighbouring residents complained for years to the city and the Ontario ministry about the frequency and hours of trucks rumbling

Dan Pearce/Metroland

Dan Irwin, and some of his neighbours, have been fighting for a decade to have ML Ready Mix moved out of their neighbourhood amid complaints of truck traffic, noise and dust from the facility directly across the street from his home. in and out of the facility, and about the accompanying dust and its health impacts. ML Ready Mix operated without ministry environmental approvals until

2013, which further exacerbated tensions between company officials and residents. "We’re willing to work things out, to be a good corporate citizen," Rene Silva,

ML’s technical controller, said in a 2013 interview. "We want to address the community’s concerns, to address them as much as possible. A solution to most, if not all, of their con-

cerns is very attainable. "But if people just don’t want us here, unfortunately, we are here. Let’s try to find a way to work it out." Two years ago, the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal dismissed ML Ready Mix’s appeal of terms and conditions of its Ontario government-issued Environmental Compliance Approval. ML Ready Mix is a legal, non-conforming use as it relates to city zoning. Area councillor Mark Grimes said the city’s effort to relocate ML out of the neighbourhood is ongoing. "We have our thumb on them," Grimes said. "We’ll continue to work to see where we can relocate them. It isn’t happening fast enough for residents, but I don’t have a magic wand." Grimes added he is personally committed to relocating the concrete company. "I’ll keep working at it," Grimes said. "It’s a tough one for me. I’ve been dealing with this since I was elected in 2003. I’d like to get them out of there."

Are you constantly turning up the volume on the television? This makes watching television challenging for you and loud to people around you.

insidetoronto.com

Do you find yourself constantly raising the volume on your television? Do commercials seem louder? Is your family always asking you to turn the volume down? Hearing the television can be a common problem even for people who can hear everything else just fine. Fortunately, the rechargeable Phonak Audéo™ B-R hearing aid has been specifically designed to improve your television listening experience, allowing you to enjoy the shows you love without disrupting the people around you. Frequently turning up the volume on the television can be one of the first signs of an undetected high-frequency hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is caused by damage to microscopic cells deep within our inner ears called “hair cells.” Normally, these hair cells detect incoming sounds and change them into information our brain uses to hear. With a high-frequency hearing loss, the hair cells that let us hear soft, high-pitched speech sounds are damaged, which can make speech sound unclear or mumbled.

Most people won’t notice this drop in speech clarity right away, because they are usually listening to only one or two people in a quiet area, and get plenty of visual cues from the person talking. When watching television, there can be loud music in the background, people speaking fast or with an accent, and you cannot always see the face of the person talking. While turning up the volume helps a little, it will not improve the clarity you are missing out on.

Fortunately, a new hearing aid has been designed with this problem in mind. Programmed to fit your unique listening needs, the rechargeable Phonak Audéo B-R hearing aids will significantly improve your understanding of television, while keeping the volume at a much more comfortable level. These advanced devices are completely selfadjusting with no buttons to push, dials to turn, or batteries to change. You’ll be free to enjoy the shows you love while hearing your absolute best. Connect Hearing wants to help you hear the TV better. Call 1.888.408.7377 or visit connecthearing.ca/recharge today and register for your free hearing test*. Qualified candidates will receive a no-obligation trial of the Phonak Audéo B rechargeable hearing aid, so you can hear for yourself how these hearing aids will help you hear your favourite show.

On November 1, 2013, Expert Mortgage launched the “85Alive”program in Ontario. The concept was simple: as long as you had a pulse, Expert Mortgage would provide you with a home equity loan, up to 85 percent of the value of your property. No job required. Bad credit, OK. The reason why Expert Mortgage could offer a “no questions asked” lending program, while the major banks could not, is that they represent over 200 private lenders who lend strictly on property value. These subprime lenders specialize in mortgage clients who have had some bad luck, and need a helping hand until they get back on their feet. The program has been so successful that Expert Mortgage can barely keep up with the volume of calls. To help fund this unexpectedly large number of borrowers, it has partnered up with dozens more private lenders.

Licensed Mortgage Agent Puneet Garg, Expert Mortgage’s “85-Alive” representative for the GTA Region, says, “We’re seeing mostly homeowners behind on mortgage and property taxes. The banks are refusing to restructure their loans. Many of these people have lost jobs due to the bad economy... or they’re self-employed. Unless you are a perfect applicant, the bank doesn’t want to talk to you.” But not everyone condones Expert Mortgage’s easy lending criteria. A local real estate agent with 25 years of experience, who has asked to remain anonymous, says, “When this market turns down, it’s going to get ugly! It’s utter financial suicide for Expert Mortgage to be giving money away so easily to clients without the ability to make payments. I’d be surprised if they’re still in business five years from now.” Nonetheless, homeowners

New program provides emergency mortgage loans to homeowners like Anita P. don’t see a problem with the program. When questioned on how she plans on making payments on her mortgage when she has no income, Anita responds, “We were four months behind on our mortgage and they saved our house. My husband has been unemployed for nine months. He won’t be unemployed forever. We used the 85-Alive loan to pay off all our debt. We also had $25,000 left over that we put in the bank for emergencies. And to make life easy, they worked it out so we have no mortgage payments for 12 months.” For more details on the ”85-Alive” program, contact Puneet Garg, Mortgage Agent 647-852-4274. www.TalkToPuneet.ca

5 tips when buying a home in winter It may not be the busiest season for buying real estate, but the colder months offer many benefits to those shopping for a home. “Most buyers know they can look forward to less competition this season, but it’s also a good time to see how the home holds up to the cold weather,� explains Ray Ferris, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “While the home’s curb appeal may not be at its best in the middle of winter, it sure is a good time to see how well the furnace works and if there’s enough insulation.�

If you’re shopping for a home this season, be sure to pay close attention to the five areas below. “These are things you’ll want to ask your Realtor no matter what time of year,� says Ferris. “To get a better idea of how a home looks in the warmer months, simply ask the sellers to provide photos of the house.� 1. HVAC: Is the furnace in good working order? Does the home feel cold or comfortable as you walk through it? 2. Doors and windows: Is the house drafty? You’ll want to check whether the windows and doors are properly insulated.

3. Roof: It may be covered with snow, but that’s alright because you can see how well it holds up to the weight and if the house has any leaks. 4. Driveway: If the driveway has a snow melting system, now’s a good time to check if it works. 5. Neighbourhood upkeep: Take note of how well the neighbours tend to driveways and sidewalks, and whether the city plows or salts icy streets. Go to www.wedothehomework.ca for more information.

donated their outgrown equipment during a series of drives at the MasterCard Centre and Mimico Arena in November and December. "It’s hard to put in words. People in Etobicoke poured their hearts into this, and here you see the benefits," Lue said last Thursday morning, pointing to the mountains of hockey equipment piled to within just inches of the 16foot ceilings at his company’s Mississauga warehouse. "I think the parents have really been driving this with their children, and the sheer fact that they get to see the enormous results of the outreach this community has put together, I think that’s most important." One reserve set to benefit from the Rotary Etobicoke drive, Lue added, is a remote James Bay-area

community looking to outfit 12 full hockey teams that’s 144 youth in one reserve alone. "It brings a lot home for me," he said. "I, too, grew up in a community where we didn’t get to play hockey or baseball, because we didn’t have a lot. So to actually do this and see the kids benefit, it’s awesome." Local hockey dad Chris Szarka was among the dozens of volunteers who showed up at Lue’s Illumineer lighting warehouse last week to help sort through the mile-high piles of equipment before it’s all shipped north the end of the month. To help with the towering task, Szarka brought along an army of nine-yearold hockey players - his entire Mimico Canadiens Minor Atom Select team, including son Alex. "I just think it’s the right thing to do," Alex, 9, said of giving up one of his last days of the winter school

Volunteer Lux Conan, 10, tries to put another game jersey on the pile during the Rotary Etobicoke hockey equipment drive sorting day. break to volunteer. "Since we have such opportunities to play hockey, we should share that with other people." That sentiment was echoed by his dad: "Just the thought that there could be young hockey talent up there on one of the reserves who might never get a chance to become the next

Jordin Tootoo or the Hayley Wickenheiser of the north because he or she doesn’t have skates - that’s what made us want to get involved," said Szarka, who helped run the hockey equipment drive at Mimico Arena. The response to that drive, he added, was "insane".

"We’ve done a lot of things at Mimico (Arena), but I’ve never seen such support like this from people," he said. "We saw entire teams of kids who donated this incredibly high-quality gear - stuff they easily could’ve received hundreds of dollars for at Play it Again Sports, yet they chose to donate. The generosity was amazing to see." Once sorted by category and size, that hockey equipment is then due to be shipped north to its six different reserve destinations - all of which, Lue said, are in the James Bay area - at the end of January, courtesy of Etobicoke-based transportation company MGA International Logistics. "They’re generously donating all the transportation, taking the equipment as far as Thunder Bay themselves, then handling logistics - whether it’s a flight or the ice roads - from there. So we’re really

thankful for them stepping up," said Laura Latham, executive director of Franklin Horner Community Centre, who spent last Thursday morning sorting hundreds of pairs of skates alongside 12-year-old helper Mikayla Grimes. "It’s really special getting the kids involved. Adults volunteer all the time, but to have the kids do this peer-to-peer and to see them understand what they’re doing - it’s more than a drive, it’s great awareness." While the drive is technically over, Lue said he and his fellow Rotary Etobicoke organizers are still in desperate need of donations of hockey sticks, which are in short supply. Anyone wishing to donate can drop sticks off at Illumineer Ltd., 6503 Northam Dr., until Jan. 30. For more information or to sign up, email Laura Latham at franklinhorner.laura@gmail.com

COMMUNITY

Is there harm in a closed-door meeting? What is the harm in a quiet meeting between politicians, to hash out strategy and direction, maybe sort out differences? That is the reasonablesounding question that Mayor John Tory has asked in a private meeting with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. As documents obtained by The Toronto Sun in a Freedom of Information request show, and Tory has confirmed, Tory asked for changes to the City of Toronto Act that would lift the rules preventing more than 50 per cent of a committee or council from meeting privately. Tory is specifically interested in having full, private meetings with his executive committee, the most powerful assembly in the city with the exception of council itself. The executive’s members are generally considered especially loyal to the mayor and his agenda - in-

DAVID NICKLE The City deed, have been handpicked by the mayor for that purpose. Tory didn’t want to make decisions in those meetings; they’d just be to set the agenda, discuss strategy. Which is something that one would expect to be done with a cabinet filled with loyalists. It is much easier to do in a big group than in the two-bytwo meetings that Tory says he needs to do to even order lunch with his 12member committee. So no harm, right? Perhaps no harm, but doing so would be a lot of trouble - so much so that when the

matter became public, Tory indicated, maybe a little sullenly, that he wouldn’t in fact be pursuing the change."It’s not worth the trouble," he told reporters.It is trouble, and should be trouble, to do something like this. It’s not because of fear that Mayor Tory’s behaviour will become particularly more nefarious indulging in quiet lunch-ordering meetings with his caucus. It’s a matter of transparency, and checks and balances - and appearances. And any time that a politician makes a move to close a door, it gives the appearance that transparency and checks and balances are being sacrificed for something rather more serious than efficiencies. And there’s the harm. David Nickle covers city hall for Metroland Media Toronto. Contact him at dnickle@insidetoronto.com?

Select tourney on tap this weekend Another hockey tournament is slated to take over Etobicoke this weekend from Jan. 13 to 15. The Humber Valley Hockey Association is holding its 34th annual minor atom and atom select tournament, all in Etobicoke at Central Arena, 50

Montgomery Rd. The Faustina Sports Club wrapped up its 19th annual Carl Gordaneer Memorial Christmas Tournament on Dec. 31. It attracted ’select’ teams from tyke to midget - all played at the MasterCard Centre.

Other Greater Toronto Hockey League tournaments going on in the city this weekend include Scarborough-based Don Montgomery Memorial Tournament at the ’select’ level and North York-based Toronto Aeros tournament at the ’AA’ and ’A’ rep levels.

Thanks to the work of ‘The Famous Five’ (Emily Murphy, Irene Marryat Parlby, Nellie McClung, Louise Crummy McKinney and Henrietta Muir Edwards – some of whom are seen here with Prime Minister MacKenzie King), women achieved the right to be elected to Senate in 1929. In what became known as ‘The Persons Case’, they challenged the Supreme Court of Canada to answer “Does the word ‘Persons’ in Section 24 of the British North American Act, 1867, include female persons?”

How to get your kids to play outside in the winter DOMINIK KUREK dkurek@thetopic.ca

can go out and play in the snow, doing such things as tobogganing, making snowmen and forts, throwing snowballs and more. There’s also free outdoor skating around Toronto. If you live in an urban area such as downtown Toronto where there are few open park spaces, go out and explore your city, Janson said. "Kids don’t always need a structured activity or plan in order to have a good time. If you were to go walk down by the waterfront with your kids on a beautiful day, I guarantee they would find something to play with," Janson said. "If you are weaving physical activities and opportunities for play and exploration into your family activities, that will become part of what your children come to expect when they’re with their family," she said. The City of Toronto has 50 outdoor skating rinks, which are open seven days a week. Skate rentals are also available at many of the locations.

It’s winter, no doubt about it, which means some parents may be struggling even harder to get their children to go outside and play. But children need outdoor play, stresses Toronto-based, national nonprofit ParticipACTION, which says only 9 per cent of Canadian kids get the one hour of required physical activity per day, which the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guideline suggests children aged 5 to 17 should get. And winter should not be a reason for not being active, ParticipACTION says. "It’s about embracing winter rather than enduring winter. If kids learn how to skate and how to toboggan and have exposure to those at a young age, they realize how much fun it is and they have a certain level of competence to be able to enjoy it," said Katherine Janson, director of communication at ParticipACTION. "I think it’s our responsibility as parents that our kids get access to the basic

skills on the snow, on the ice, to be able to learn the basics so that they can go to the skating party and have fun." Janson admits it’s tough to get your kids outside. Putting on winter wear is sometimes a workout in itself, but it’s worth it. "The magic of the outdoors is that once you get the kids outdoors, they naturally move more," she said. Technology such as TV, families not making active choices together such as choosing to drive rather than walk to school, or parental behaviour such as texting at the dinner table, are some of the barriers to kids wanting to go outside. Janson suggests parents start early in their kids’ lives in creating active choices for their families as healthy habits start forming at a younger age than most parents realize. Parents should limit TV time, walk to places when possible, and do active things together. This will make it easier for parents to get their kids to go out and play. Play doesn’t need to be structured, either. Kids

Tickets for the brunch cost $75 for students, $100 for OBHS members, $110 for non-members, and $1,000 for a table of 10.

I want to be with you and my loved ones in your perpetual glory. Amen ~A. B. This prayer should be said for 3 consecutive days. After the 3rd day, your sincere wish will be granted no matter how difficult it may be. Promise to publish it on granting of your favour. The idea is to spread the wonder of the Holy Spirit

The simple act of recycling has more impact on the environment than the average Canadian thinks. The amount of wood and paper North Americans throw away each year is enough to heat five million homes for 200 years.

Put a composter in your backyard or use your green bin to reduce household waste. Composting organics has two key benefits: it reduces the amount of waste going to landfills and when added to your garden, helps nourish soil and plants.
