THE BIKE DOCTOR’S GIFT: Oscar Toledo, left, and Nathaniel Koalczyk, Grade 9 students at Christ the King Catholic School, were surprised by the gift of bicycles meticulously restored by Ron Hollouell, a.k.a The Bike Doctor, at centre. The students were selected by principal Julie Aube, far left, and “Officer Rich” Diodati, the school liason officer because of their outstanding contributions to the school community. The school’s theme this year is the story of the starfish, which relays how small actions can make a big difference. This act of kindness was celebrated by the school as a continuation of that theme.

Principals nominated for excellence Toonie Tuesday funds going to Philippine typhoon disaster relief Canadian toonies will soon be flowing into the Philippines as Toronto’s Catholic school board responds to pleas for help from the storm-stricken country. Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) officials have issued an urgent appeal to all students, teachers, and staff to participate in

its Toonie Tuesday fundraiser on Nov. 19. “As a Catholic community, our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters in the Philippines, and we offer our prayers for the victims of this natural disaster and those who have been displaced,” Director of Education Angela Gauthier said in a statement,

which noted that all toonies raised will be earmarked for Philippines Relief through the Archdiocese of Toronto. With more than 90,000 students and 13,000 full and parttime staff, the board hopes to raise close to $250,000.

Police seek toy donations for children CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com South Etobicoke police have once again partnered up with St. James Food Basket to put some smiles on the faces of children this holiday season. As of Nov. 1, officers at 22 Division headquarters began accepting new, unwrapped toys for the 450 children whose families are set to receive a holiday food hamper from St. James this year. For 22 Division’s Det. Pat McGrade, the toy drive has proven a great way for him and his fellow officers to give back to the community they serve. “We’re not just automatons here, we don’t just come in here and work – we like giving back, too,” laughed McGrade, noting that when he helped head up 22 Division’s toy drive for St. James two years ago, they filled five whole cruiser-loads of toys. “As a parent, the thought of a kid

As a parent, the thought of a kid waking up on Christmas morning without anything under the tree, that’s hard to take. – Det. Pat McGrade

waking up on Christmas morning without anything waiting under the tree, that’s hard to take. So, if we can do something about it by helping out and bringing in some unwrapped toys, that would be great.” Judy Wallace, co-chair of the St. James Food Basket, called 22 Division’s contributions a “wonderful” addition to what has become a seven-year tradition of holiday giving. “Around Christmas time, those guys just come through beautifully with toys for the kids. We’ve got about 450 kids under 13 – and that’s a lot of kids,” she said, noting that Food

Basket volunteers try to provide each child on their list with a new book, a pair of mittens, and a new toy. “We’re not being a total Santa, but we try. Most of the families we serve spend nearly 90 per cent of their incomes on rent, which doesn’t leave a lot left over for toys.” While located at St. James United Church at 400 Burnhamthorpe Rd., Wallace said the Food Basket is actually a partnership between several local churches, plus area Buddhist and Muslim groups. Together, those partners work in tandem to provide 200 families on average with weekly food baskets, which are funded completely by donations. About $400 a week in those donations, Wallace added, are spent at the Ontario Food Terminal, purchasing fresh, seasonal produce to help balance out the other staples included in the food baskets. “No one can live on Kraft dinner and peanut butter alone,” she said, noting that a further $250 is spent

monthly on eggs. As the holiday approaches, the Food Basket is hoping to collect as many new toys as possible to spread a little cheer among its youngest customers. And with the help of McGrade and 22 Division, they’re hoping to collect more toys this year than ever before. So far, McGrade said he’s reached out to 22 Division’s followers on both Facebook (www.facebook.com/ TPS22) and Twitter (@The22News) for toy drive donations, but he’s hoping to reach more people to ensure all children of south Etobicoke have something special to wake up to over the holidays. “We’re really just trying to get some interest about the toy drive out into the community and let people know they can now bring toys to us here at 22 Division,” he said. Anyone wishing to help the Food Basket is urged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the front desk at 22 Division, 3699 Bloor St. W.

I

n today’s Etobicoke Guardian and on our website at www.insidetoronto.com, you’ll find the start of a multi-week feature all about youth suicide. It’s unusual we devote such space to a social problem. The fact is, this is a critical social issue and a problem that deserves public attention. The series is appearing in Metroland newspapers throughout Ontario and is the result of the work of a variety of reporters across the province, aided by the thoughts of experts on the subject, who helped shape the stories and the focus of our efforts. We think if you are a parent you should take the time to read the feature. Far too often, parents are surprised by an unexpected suicide. We hope that by providing this information, we our view will have provided an opportuto reverse that possibility Aim is to have nity for young people in our comfewer families munity. In this series, we hope to left behind give you an idea just how large a problem youth suicide is, help identify trends in a youth’s life to watch for that can lead to suicidal thoughts, provide a list of resources where one can find help or more information – and most of all to help our community’s parents and youth understand there is hope. There is a bright future for all youth. And it sometimes takes a community to help youth understand what the future holds. We sincerely hope one legacy of this project is to inform parents and give them the power and support needed to identify and help a youth in trouble. There’s a legacy for the media too here. Reporting on individual suicide has always been an informal taboo. But as those involved with the project thought about it, we all realized we’ve been touched by suicide in our personal lives. Suicide is more prevalent than sometimes we’d like to believe. And that makes it an issue worth bringing front-of-mind as a necessity for community discussion. This Nov. 23 is International Survivors of Suicide Day – a day to recognize the families left behind. This feature series envelops that day and we hope we’re able to present a toolbox of opportunity, so ultimately there are fewer families left behind, and more youth leading wonderful, adventurous and sometimes unexpectedly full lives.

Councillor Minnan-Wong must consider risks of running for mayor D

enzil Minnan-Wong has been around the block. I know this because he got his start on North York council shortly after I got my start covering city politics, in the early 1990s. He wasn’t elected, initially; North York council appointed him to fill the seat left vacant with the passing of former councillor Barry Burton. Unlike other candidates for the appointment, Minnan-Wong would not promise to stay out of the next election. Why should he? he argued. If he did a good job in the remaining months of the term, he’d like to be re-elected. It was refreshing candor. North York council was at that time filled with councillors who’d lied about their intentions after taking appointments and become fixtures. Minnan-Wong, a young

david nickle the city

and committed Progressive Conservative operative, at least wore his ambition on his sleeve. I had to hand it to him. A couple decades later, a somewhat more cautious Minnan-Wong edges toward committing to a mayoralty run. A longtime member of Mayor Rob Ford’s cabinetlike executive committee, he started this week at loggerheads with the mayor over his crack-smoking, hard-drinking lifestyle. On Tuesday, Minnan-Wong made it clear he is seriously considering a more serious face off: namely, taking on Ford and others in the 2014 election for the mayoralty. It’s a serious consideration. In early polls, Minnan-Wong’s not been much of a factor. The

fantasy-football mayor’s race has been dominated by Olivia Chow, Ford, Karen Stintz and John Tory. With ex-Scarborough councillor David Soknacki already having declared his interest along with Ford and Stintz, the right-of-centre ballot is already crowded. If Tory decides to run, it’ll be a crowded pack, running against what so far seems to be a more disciplined ticket on the left, supporting Chow. If Minnan-Wong runs and loses, it will mean at least a pause in a long political career, and possibly the end of it. And it could mean having contributed to a left-of-centre Chow mayoralty – a continuation of the Miller administration that Minnan-Wong so consistently opposed. On the other hand, the timing has never been better for Minnan-Wong. Stintz has made bigger

headlines chairing the TTC, but Minnan-Wong has been working hard on the city’s public works and infrastructure committee on smaller issues. He’s killed bike lanes – on Jarvis and in Scarborough – and pioneered others including the new separated lanes on Sherbourne. He’s on record as at least trying to get ahead of the problems with the Gardiner Expressway. And while he’s been a loyal soldier for the mayor for most of three years, he’s taken his step away at a time that even many of Ford’s supporters would see as appropriate. All that gives MinnanWong a shot at being mayor. The question he’s got to ask is whether that shot is worth putting at risk pretty much everything else.

Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame welcomes six new inductees TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com The Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame inducted its longtime, now-retired chairman, as well as three athletes, a much-winning horse trainer and the man who helped turn Humber College into a top destination for student athletes, last Thursday evening. Annually, the venerable hall inducts athletes across a litany of amateur and professional sports, as well as members of the media, and longtime coaches and mentors honoured as builders. Reade Baker is Woodbine Racetrack’s top trainer in terms of purse earnings and stakes race winners. Twice, he developed and trained Canada’s Horse of the Year: Fatal Bullet and Bear Now. Some of the most important owners in the business, including Frank Stronach, Jim and Susan Hill and former Kentucky governor Brereton C. Jones, entrust their horses to Baker’s stable. “I’m so lucky. All I ever wanted to do all my life was work with animals and it happened. I have great friends, a wonderful family and a perfect wife,” Baker said, his voice breaking with emotion. “I live in the best part of the greatest city in the world.” Bob Nadin, one of Canada’s most highly decorated hockey officials, NHL star Gerry O’Flaherty and three-time Olympian women’s top goaltender Sami Jo Small were this year’s athlete inductees. Former 13-year hall chairman Jim Sturino and Humber College’s Doug Fox joined Reade as builder inductees. Humber College hired Fox in 1979 to run its then newly created Humber Athletic Centre. When Fox retired in August, Humber fielded 20 varsity teams, boasted stateof-the-art facilities and training programs that continue to attract top shelf athletes. Under Fox’s leadership, the Humber Hawks in the 2011/12 season earned 18 team and individual provincial gold medals. “Once I started working there, I never wanted to leave. It’s the epitome of an insti-

tution,” Fox said of Humber College. “I made it a priority to make sure it was a great experience for those athletes. I carried that priority for 35 years.” Nadin recalled being invited by the Russians to put on a clinic for Russian referees in 1972, on the eve of the now-famous RussiaCanada hockey series. “I consider it a great honour to be inducted in to the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame,” Nadin said. “It’s an opportunity to meet a lot of people who’ve also been inducted, people who contributed a great deal to both sports and community here in Etobicoke. One of the things about sport is you have the opportunity to meet very fine people; people who become friends for the rest of your life.” Small won five world championships with the Canadian women’s hockey team, twice named the tournament’s top goaltender. The Manitoba native also co-founded the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. In 1999 when Sturino was first elected hall chair, the hall was a small, unincorporated entity run by Etobicoke’s parks and recreation department. In ensuing years, Sturino, a realtor, expanded the hall’s memorabilia collection and displays, and found it a permanent home in the

MasterCard Centre after being located for years in various shopping malls. Sturino thanked his late father, Otello, for helping to teach him the entrepreneurial ropes. His most-loved task as hall chair was calling each inductee personally, he said. “My dad taught me to put 100 per cent effort into all tasks, work hard and listen, listen, listen,” Sturino said. “Be like a sponge. Dream the dream, have passion, have the eye of the tiger and there is nothing that you cannot achieve in your life.” Proceeds from the hall’s annual induction dinner and golf tournament fund scholarships presented at each year’s ceremony. Last Thursday night, $1,000 hall Humber College scholarships were awarded to: Genevieve Bernier, a driving force for the Humber Hawks curling team; Brenda Carachure, an integral part of the OCAA (Ontario Colleges Athletic Association) bronze medalist women’s basketball team; Kelly Nyhof, an OCAA gold medalist and Player of the Year, and Natalie Stoberman, named OCAA fastball Rookie of the Year and All-Academic, Humber fastball Rookie of the Year and Co-Freshman of the Year. Special Olympians received $2,000 scholarships. Figure skater, swimmer and basketball player Sara McKelvie won the Doug Holyday Special Olympian Scholarship, named after the former deputy mayor who sat on the steering committee when the hall was formed. Powerlifter, golfer and triathlete Tim Goodacre took home the Jim Sturino Special Olympian Scholarship, named after the 13-year hall chairman. Humber journalism student Darryn O’Malley won the George Gross Sports Journalism Award. Father John Redmond Catholic Secondary students Christine Neatby and Evan Foster won the hall’s high school scholarships.

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

Give the gift of fresh produce Good Food Box Drive gets fresh, local foods to the people who need it most

TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com You may not know them. The Stonegate community sits on the west bank of the Humber River off Park Lawn Road in southeast Etobicoke. The neighbourhood is home to thousands of tenants, more than 50 per cent newcomers to Canada from diverse backgrounds, living in 75 low-rise apartment buildings a half-century old. Pover ty is stark in Stonegate. Some 38 per cent of children, and 28 per cent of families, live in poverty. Many residents turn to the Christ Church-St. James Church’s pantry food bank. But it only operates three times a month. Stonegate Community Health Centre (CHC) is an anchor in the community. Addressing local poverty is its key strategic priority. The centre provides primary health care through its Family Practice Clinic, as well as a variety of other health services and health promotion programs. Myriad community programs, counselling, as well as advocacy initiatives are also offered to neighbourhood residents. The health centre’s most unique service is its Good Food Box program, which offers fresh local produce at affordable prices. This month, the health centre launched its fourth annual Good Food Box Holiday Drive. One FoodShare large-sized Good Food Box – similar in size to a recycling Blue Box ­– this week was packed full of apples, oranges, bananas, pears, kale, lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, sweet potatoes and potatoes. FoodShare buys directly from Ontario farmers and the Ontario Food Terminal. The holiday drive aims to collect donations throughout November and early December to purchase more than 300 Good Food Boxes

this Christmas for Stonegate residents living with food insecurity and hunger. “The boxes are given to families with children, seniors, children with single parents, generally anyone and everyone who is ‘food insecure’,” said Julia Graham, Stonegate CHC’s community

food program co-ordinator. “Food insecurity could be a malnutrition issue identified by our dietician. It could be a client who tells us, ‘I haven’t had any food today.’ “People living on social assistance, given the cost of rent, often have no money leftover for food. Often,

parents go without to feed a child.” A donation of $18 buys one Good Food Box for a family in need. A $50 gift purchases boxes for three families. Six families benefit from a $100 donation. While a $250 donation gives 15 families fresh produce

Tenants have until March to vacate >>>from page 1 were all recently given their marching orders. “The loss of the grocery stores, pharmacy and the other services available at the plaza will be a very serious loss to this community, so to lose the health and social services that we provide here, too, I think it would be unconscionable for us to leave if we can possible stay.” At a community meeting held last month, Vandyk officials quelled at least some local concerns by announcing plans to incorporate a large, two-storey commercial/retail building into the plaza redevelopment in order to accommodate both Stonegate CHC and a replacement grocery store. Read about the plans at bit.ly/17Tv3SO According to Vandyk’s VicePresident of Finance Gerard Caverson, while Stonegate Plaza’s other tenants have been given until the beginning of March to vacate, the decision of whether or not Stonegate CHC will be

allowed to remain on site during the redevelopment process will depend on the results of soil testing currently being undertaken at the plaza. “We’re conducting tests in and around the site to see if we can accommodate (Stonegate CHC) where it is,” he said, noting that the test results are expected by end of December. “The health centre is the only tenant who has not been issued notice, and the reason for that is (they) provide a service that is integral to the community...We’re trying to be as least disruptive as possible. Ideally, that would mean keeping the community health centre on site.” In terms of demolition timelines, Caverson said the on-site garage is set to come down very early in the new year, followed by the demolition of the Valumart in March. Leaver, meanwhile, said that while she’s happy the “long-overdue” redevelopment of the aging Stonegate Plaza is finally becoming a

reality, she’s nevertheless fearful of the negative impact it might have on the community and hopeful Vandyk will consider the community’s needs “every step of the way.” “I think, ultimately, we’ll have a better facility to offer our health and social services to this community, but in the interim, there’s going to be very difficult days, difficult years ahead, in terms of either staying here on what will be a construction site, or being forced to move to a temporary location,” she said. Should that worst case scenario become a reality and Stonegate CHC is forced to temporarily relocate, Leaver said a contingency plan is in place. “We’ve been aware that the redevelopment of this plaza has been a likelihood for the past three years, so we’ve been looking at possible sites and we have what we think is a viable site on The Queensway,” she said.

Donations sought for new musuem

>>>from page 1 Monday’s Remembrance Day ceremony. “Because the July storm was so major across Etobicoke, they couldn’t get clean-up crews in here in time to really do anything. By the time they got here to clean up, the mold, mildew and everything rose to over four feet – and at that point it was just a write-off.” While Gregory and several other legion members waded into the mess to salvage what they could, many items from the museum were either destroyed or badly damaged in the storm’s aftermath, including old military uniforms, old-time photos of local soldiers, pieces of antique weaponry, and wartime newspaper clippings – all items donated to the museum by local veterans. The feeling of loss brought about by the destruction of so much history hit members especially hard this week, as many local vets from among Branch 286’s 300strong membership gathered Monday to pay tribute to their fallen comrades on Remembrance Day.

Staff photo/IAN KELSO

From left, Const. Bill Vollmar of 23 Division, President of Branch 286 Ron Gregory, members of local Sikh community Kuldeep Brar, Ravinder Singh, Ajay Pal Singh and Const. Jag Dhillon.

Among those also paying tribute Monday were Consts. Bill Vollmar and Jag Dhillon of 23 Division, and Kuldeep Brar, Ravinder Singh and Ajay Pal Singh, members of the local Sikh Nation community who have pledged to help rebuild the Branch 286 museum. “To see and hear that so much stuff was destroyed, it was sad because some of the people who donated that memorabilia might not be here anymore,” Vollmar

said. Through outreach efforts and connections with Rosewood Furniture, the men have committed to help build new cabinetry that will house the surviving memorabilia in the legion’s soon-to-berebuilt museum – including several kirpans donated by local Sikh veterans.

Donations matched for Philippines’ relief Torontonians interested in helping Filipinos affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which hit Nov. 8, are asked to make a monetary donation, which will be matched by the Canadian government. For every dollar donated to registered Canadian charities until Dec. 9, the government

will donate $1 to the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund. Visit www.cra-arc.gc.ca/ chrts-gvng/lstngs/menu-eng. html for a list of registered charities. Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines Nov. 8, setting off landslides and knocking out power, affecting about 9.5

million people. Haiyan then made landfall in Vietnam and Laos Nov. 10. In addition to matching donations by Canadians, the federal government provided more than $5 million in support to organizations to help people affected by the typhoon.

Etobicoke-native Kathryn Fudurich is one of 12 singers featured on the certified-gold single, If You’re Not Here At Christmas – a Canadian song paying tribute to the loved ones we can’t spend the holidays with due to death, estrangement, commitments or distance. Profits from the “uplifting” song, recorded over the summer by Fudurich and 11 other alumni from Spectra Talent Contest, benefit the Rainbow Association of Canadian Artists, a registered nonprofit organization that celebrates diversity in musical expression. T h e b ra i n c h i l d o f Spectra’s executive director Ralph Hamelmann, the song was co-written by Juno Award-winner Gavin Bradley and Gemini Award-winner Paul Bellini.

“Songs like Blue Christmas and Last Christmas lament the end of relationships, but few holiday songs recognize the family members and friends we simply can’t spend the holidays with, which is a common reality for most,” Hamelman said in a statement. “I wanted to create a song that would comfort anyone who is dealing with loss, separation or isolation during the holidays.” If You’re Not Here At Christmas has already hit No. 1 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Canadian Singles Chart and has been certified gold by Music Canada. It is currently available through iTunes presales.

ESA students get international attention at Portfolio Day

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Student artist Sanie Irsay stood before a vast wall full of her work with a nervous smile Friday as university recruiters from as far away as Paris, France surveyed her portfolio – an admittedly overwhelming experience for the 17-year-old Etobicoke School of the Arts (ESA) senior. “I was terrified, but at the same time excited. I feel like we’ve been working towards this, all of us as a collective, for the last three years,” she said. “It’s overwhelming sometimes, but everyone’s been nice so far. And I think it’s amazing we’ve got this opportunity to speak to reps from the U.S. schools, and from Paris, even.” Irsay was just one of 55 students participating in ESA’s fourth annual Portfolio Day Friday, which saw university recruiters from 42 schools across North America and Europe – including Harvard University, the Paris College of Art, the Pratt Institute and the Ontario College of Art and Design, just to name a few – come and check out prospective students. Last year’s ESA Portfolio Day resulted in six students receiving scholarship offers totaling $2.1 mil-

I spent some time in the international art community exhibiting all over the world, so I knew what the standard was and realized how close we were to that already. – Matthew Varey, ESA teacher

Etobicoke School of the Arts film major Emily Badgley shows off her display, during the school’s annual Portfolio Day which attracted representatives from universities across the globe last Friday.

lion, said Matthew Varey, a decadelong teacher at ESA who has been organizing the school’s Portfolio Day since its inception four years ago. “During my second or third year teaching here, I helped a couple of students to get into some of the New York schools. At the time, we thought the difficulty would be in getting them in, but we realized after they both got accepted that it was actually in paying

to go,” he explained of the impetus behind Portfolio Day. “We really just want our kids to have access to the best schools in the world, because we know how hard they work and what they’re capable of. “I spent some time in the international art community exhibiting all over the world, so I knew what the standard was and realized how close we were to that already. So this is

just our way to bridge that gap better and let other people know what our students are doing.” And even better, Varey added, if international recruiters end up offering his students scholarships, like last year, when seven American schools offered their top scholarships to ESA students – five of them full rides. Student photographer/filmmaker Emily Badgley said that while she hopes to be one of those lucky scholarship winners this year, she isn’t stressing it. For her, it’s all about the art. “The art is never an issue. The art is simple: you create, you put it out, you be happy,” she said of her approach to filmmaking, while four of her short films played on separate screens behind her. “So for me, today’s been really

great. The people are lovely, so I’m not stressed at all. Plus, they organized it really well this year. We got to sign up for the schools that we really want to talk to, so I haven’t been bombarded, nor have I been worried that no one’s going to come see me. That’s been really helpful.” Just an hour into her first Portfolio Day, Badgley had already spoken to several of her top choices – including universities from both Canada and the United States. Elissa Armstrong, a Peterborough native who’s now director of the arts foundation program at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, said she had been looking forward to the opportunity to return home to scope out some Canadian talent – and she wasn’t disappointed. “For our school, technical skills are great, but we can teach that,” she said. “So what I’m looking for in any kind of student is the potential of what they might do if they came into our program, as well as indications of curiosity and experimentation and some interesting conceptual development. That’s really what we’re ultimately looking for – and I’ve seen that today.”

Thousands of kids drop out of high school every year. Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada are committed to changing that. They provide a safe and supportive place where kids can develop confidence and life skills. They offer programs like Rogers Raising the Grade to help kids with their studies. The Club is a place where kids can drop in, so they’re less likely to drop out. TM

Toronto Public Health launches WALK CYCLE MOVE campaign RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com Is there a street in your neighbourhood which could use a bike lane or walking path? Toronto Public Health (TPH) wants to know. The city’s health authority recently launched WALK CYCLE MOVE, a series of public consultations taking place throughout Toronto. The first meeting was held Nov. 5, at the North York Civic Centre, and more meetings are planned over the next few months. The purpose of the meetings is to gain feedback from residents on how to improve local road infrastructure to benefit active transportation; walking, cycling and other modes of travel requiring sustained physical exertion. Participants will also be able to provide input through localized online surveys. “We’re just trying to find out what would make it easier for the public to walk and

We’re looking at it from a health perspective, how to encourage more people to be active to improve their health over all. –Carol Mee, TPH manager

cycle, any suggestions they might have we can take to the city,” said TPH manager Carol Mee. “We’re trying to identify the barriers that are preventing more people from taking part in active transportation.” The initiative ties public health with urban planning in an effort to identify how to best to get Toronto’s sedentary population to make more use of active transportation, by first identifying and later on improving local roads. TPH is not the first city agency to tackle the task of re-configuring the city’s roadways. Both the planning depart-

ment and transportation services are working on mobility studies designed at alleviating congestion and strengthening public transit. But the difference with this campaign, according to Mee, is looking at infrastructure improvement based on the health benefits they can derive. “We’re looking at it from a health perspective, how to encourage more people to be active to improve their health overall,” she said. Mee said TPH will work collaboratively with the department of transportation services on identifying the streets to be improved and determining how much money it will cost. Three more public consultations are planned for Scarborough, Black Creek and the Annex for the campaign, which runs into the new year.

Open Street Summit slated An upcoming public meeting will explore the prospects of opening the city’s streets up to more pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Presented by Toronto Centre–Rosedale city councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, the Open Street Summit will examine how streets geared primarily to cars can be modified to encourage more active modes of travel.

CONDO LIVING

23

According to a recent forecast from the Canadian Real Estate Association, the housing market is poised to see 3.4 per cent growth in the coming year – and more and more of us are choosing condominiums. Clients should read the fine print before signing on the dotted line. Buying a home, whether it is a condo or a single family house, is one of the biggest financial commitments you will make in your life. There are important differences between purchasing single and multi-family homes. When it comes to condos, keeping a few important details in mind can save you headaches in the long run.

To help condo buyers sort through the clutter, refer to the following checklist: • Ask questions. Knowing the building's history will give you peace of mind. Important questions to ask include: Do the unit owners own the recreational facilities as part of the common property, or does the condominium corporation lease them? How many units are rented? How much money is in the reserve fund and what major expenses, if any, are being considered in the reserve fund plan? • Schedule a comprehensive home inspection. This examination should not only include the unit you're considering, but also the building envelope and common areas. When selecting

an inspector or engineer, make sure they are qualified to provide a complete and reliable inspection. This will protect your investment in the long run. • Watch for last minute changes. If you've purchased a new-build condo, there is a chance that last minute changes may be made by contractors in construction. Keep a close eye out and don't be afraid to ask questions if something isn't as was initially agreed on. • Know what your condo board will cover. Anything to do with the complex's structure is the responsibility of the condominium corporation, but you will need to secure your own insurance to cover personal property, liability or

Tips for Canadians purchasing condos

any changes you choose to make to the unit. Understanding the condo corporation and the stability of the reserve funds is crucial. It is critical that you work with your broker to ensure that you not only protect yourself from losses to your own property, but also any costs that may be incurred from losses to the rest of the property that might be underinsured through the corporation. • Be proactive with your insurance broker. Depending on the use of your condo, your insurance needs may change. Many condo owners don't realize that by taking on a roommate, or leasing out their unit, their current policy may no longer cover them. Updating your broker on anything from new, valuable contents to cohabitation will ensure that you're properly insured. – newscanada.com

Beat Lower Back, Disc And Sciatic Pain Now

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

Dr. Peter Ng has a special interest in natural pain relief and Chinese medicine.

his just in: the forecast for Sunday’s Toronto Santa Claus Parade. Be advised that an extremely large mass of floats is expected to appear out of the west on Bloor Street at Christie Pits at around 12:30 p.m. The accumulation will head due east to Avenue Road, at which point it will veer south down to Wellington Street, then work its way back east again all the way to the St. Lawrence Market on Front Street. Given the enormous size and colourful nature of the floats, their visibility will be 100 per cent throughout the festivities. Also expected in the outlook is widespread waving, smiling and occasional giggling from the many participants aboard. This activity will be accompanied by extended “Hi’s” from the performers to an audience that will be prevailingly appreciative. And a special advisory has been issued from Parade

jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY Environment Canada for all those in attendance to try and guess who the celebrities are that are dressed up as clowns. There are reports that an isolated cold front is expected on the polar bears on the Zoo Float. There will be expected turbulence in the endlessly long lineups in the fast-food outlets along the route prior to the parade’s kickoff. This will be immediately followed by severe thunder and rumbling emanating from the late arrivals stuck way in the back of the crowds lining the sidewalks on the route. And there will be intermittent showers, courtesy of exuberant merrymakers who have forgotten they were holding hot coffee cups in their hands when the clapping for the floats begins. The good news is that the

expected light to moderate sightings of Rudolph red noses on kids in the audience will quickly brighten everyone’s outlook. In addition, every move during the afternoon will be accompanied by flurries of snapshots, intermittent tweets, scattered texts, assorted Facebook postings and a sprinkling of YouTube uploads and downloads. But of course, the most important prognostication is for the jolly old man of the hour himself, St. Nick. There are no surprises in that forecast, needless to say. It’s always the same. Santa Claus, as usual, will be sunny all day. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to beat the crowd and lock up a primo seat for the parade. In the words of the big guy himself. “Ho, ho, hope to see you all there.” Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much.

All-new Lexus RC Coupe to make world debut at Tokyo The all-new Lexus RC coupe will make its world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month. Two RC models will be displayed - the RC 350 with a 3.5-litre V6 engine, and the RC 300h hybrid with a 2.5-litre engine. The RC line brings to life the luxury marque’s focus on emotional appeal through a dynamic and alluring two-door coupe. It has been developed to raise the brand’s profile with a broader audience and new-to-Lexus customers. It injects

emotional appeal into the Lexus DNA that is synonymous with build quality, refinement and reliability. Lexus designers have infused the RC design with deeply contoured lines never before seen in the Lexus line-up. They have integrated the widest and lowest application yet seen of the Lexus spindle grille. Triangular headlamps evoke the sporty characteristics of the LF-LC styling while concept vehicle inspiration is evident in the unique three-lamp LED

Supercharged Range Rover blends

ruggedness and refinement Any enthusiast of this respected, but quirky British brand will tell you the decision to purchase a Range Rover involves more than a comparison of trim levels and content lists. It’s about the lineup’s legendary offroad prowess, combined with today’s improved reliability, ride and craftsmanship that make a Range Rover an equal pleasure both on and off the asphalt. The Range Rover, which sits atop the model lineup (above the Range Rover Sport, LR4, Evoque and LR2), is nearly three times the price of Land Rover’s base unit. Not that this means the mid-size sport utility is in any way blinged up, unless you count the bold metallic grille, flanked by projector headlamps with LED light blades arranged in an interlocking circle. Apart from that, there are few adornments other than a vent motif on the front doors, with the real air intakes on the hood, allowing Range Rover to wade into water up to three feet deep. Beefy 21-inch alloy wheels suit the scale of its large slab sides, and the RR’s floating roof has been accentuated through the use of nearflush side windows and gloss black pillars. Overall, this fourth generation Range Rover is smoother and more streamlined than its predecessor. It is also larger, with 119 mm (4.7 inches) more rear legroom thanks to a longer wheelbase, and is stronger and lighter, owing to its extensive use of aluminum. The new RR may tip the scales at more than 2.5 tons, but that’s after shedding 250 kg, and with its supercharged V8 engine, electric power steering and independent air suspension, the Range Rover doesn’t drive like the behemoth it is. Let’s start with the powertrain. Canadian markets get the top-drawer engine - a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 that pumps out 510 hp and 461 lb/ft of torque. This will launch the Range Rover from rest to 100 km/h in a blistering 5.4 seconds. This engine is paired with a silky-smooth ZF eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. I could barely detect gear changes in normal driving, and with each shift taking only 200 milliseconds, there was no lag when I stepped hard on the pedal. The passenger cabin is a wonderful place to be with its handcrafted wood veneers, brushed aluminum accents, machine-finished controls,

mood lighting and abundant leather surfaces. Amenities like heated front and rear seats upholstered in Oxford leather with 12-way power up front and memory for the driver; three-zone climate control; heated and power tilt/telescopic leather steering wheel; and the usual stuff you’d expect in a $100K-plus vehicle like rearview camera, pushbutton start, navigation and touchscreen infotainment are also part of the standard package. Like most press vehicles, mine was loaded with added goodies like climate-controlled seating with massage and coolbox between the front buckets; an 825-watt Meridian audio system; and the Vision Assist Package that includes reverse traffic detection with blind spot monitor, adaptive headlamps with high beam assist (toggles between high and low in response to oncoming traffic), and a surround camera system that helps when backing into tight spaces. The controls, overall, are logically placed. Case in point is the heating switch, located on the steering wheel face where you can see it (not tucked behind), and good old-fashioned knobs for climate, with temperature displayed in the centre. Replacing the transmission shifter, a pucksized knob rises slowly from the centre console when you start the vehicle. It not only looks cool, but saves space and contributes to the modern, uncluttered layout that has 50 percent fewer switches than before. Another modern spin is the digital instrument panel. This 12.3-inch high-res screen comes to life on startup, with the speedo and tach ringed in virtual chrome, along with a multi-info display in between. Behind the gear selector is a drive mode knob you may seldom use. Not just because when it’s in ‘auto’, it remains flush to the centre panel, but because the system it controls works so darned well. Sure, there are settings like General, Grass/ Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, Sand and Rock Crawl, which adjust throttle response, shift patterns, suspension, etc. according to the terrain. But slip it in automatic, and the Terrain Response 2 system chooses the program for you. Just set it and forget it. – Neil Moore Metroland Media

2014 Volvo XC90 earns Top Safety Pick+ in iihs crash tests The 2014 Volvo XC90 luxury SUV has earned a Top Safety Pick+ from the U. S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Institute’s top safety award. To earn Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle must pass a series of crashworthiness evaluations, including the small overlap front test — a real-life scenario

that replicates what happens when the front corner of a vehicle strikes another vehicle or an object. Since its launch, Volvo’s XC90 luxury SUV has won acclaim from legions of satisfied customers while receiving many awards internationally. The XC90 upholds a legacy of safety, such as its pioneering introduction of

the world’s first Roll Stability Control. An all-new XC90 will debut at the end of 2014 and go on sale in early 2015. It will feature Volvo’s next-generation safety and driver-support technologies, including Pedestrian Detection in Darkness and Road Edge and Barrier Detection with Steer Assist. – Metroland Media

Council to mayor: take a break DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto council has voted to “urge” Mayor Rob Ford to take a leave of absence, apologize for lying about the video showing him using crack cocaine, and come clean with council about all of the issues that have clouded his mayoralty. Council voted late Wednesday, separately on the five requests put forward by public works and infrastructure committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong’s motion calling the mayor to account. In addition to asking him to leave, council asked him to answer questions the police have for him, apologize for writing a reference letter for alleged drug dealer, and his friend, Sandro Lisi on Toronto letterhead. The vote came after a daylong debate that was remarkable even by Toronto council’s remarkable standards. At one point, it appeared as though the mayor was about to assault Minnan-Wong,

while his brother Doug Ford goaded the Don Valley East Councillor with questions as to whether he smoked marijuana. And Ford apologized but made it clear he would not be heeding Toronto council’s wishes and intended to stay in his job. “I think I’ve said everything I really could say today,” Ford said. “Saying sorry, you can only say that so many times. I really effed up.” Ford also attempted to introduce a motion requiring drug and alcohol testing for every member of council – something speaker Frances Nunziata ruled out of order. And he boasted about his fiscal record. “I apologize, but I was elected to come down here. I know I’ve done a great job at saving the taxpayers’ money, and going on the right path,” he said. Minnan-Wong’s motion ultimately carried the day, after he delivered a speech tearing into the mayor and his record, and urging council to

take what he admitted was a symbolic gesture. “If we retreat behind legalese, saying that if no law has been broken, no wrong has been done, we miss the point made with such urgency around every dinner table, because it is known so clearly in every parent’s worrying heart...that the values that matter most in forging the life of an individual or of a city come not from law and justice, but from clear and consistent expressions of what is right and wrong,” he said. On the motion to take a leave of absence, council voted 37-5 in favour, with Gloria Lindsay Luby, Karen Stintz and Kristyn WongTam absent. Those voting against the motion were Mayor Rob Ford, Etobicoke North Doug Ford, Don Valley West Councillor John Parker, Parkdale-High Park Councillor Gord Perks and York Centre Councillor Maria Augimeri.

Catch 22 again profiles Kenneth William Marche This week’s most wanted in south Etobicoke’s 22 Division is Kenneth William Marche, 32, who is making his second appearance on the Catch 22 list. Marche, who was profiled in March, is known to frequent the Lake Shore Boulevard West area of Etobicoke. He is wanted by police on charges of break and enter and failure to comply with probation. Officers are now asking the community for its assistance in finding the accused. Anyone who sees Marche is urged to call 911, while anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call 22 Division at 416-808-2200, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips. com or text TOR and your message to CRIMES.

That information is then broadcast over both traditional and new medias each week in the hope that someone in the community will recognize the accused and contact police with information about their whereabouts. For details the Catch-22 Tuesday program, follow 22 Division on Facebook or @ the22news on Twitter.

Police are seeking four male suspects in connection with the swarming of a 19-yearold man near John Garland Boulevard and Kendleton Drive Tuesday, Nov. 12. According to police, the victim was in the area when a dark-coloured vehicle carrying four males pulled up nearby. Two of the suspects exited the vehicle, one of whom restrained the victim, while the other pulled a handgun on him and went through his pockets. A $20 bill was stolen before the victim was able to escape uninjured. The suspects fled the scene. The suspects are described as: black, aged 15 to 16, 5’9”, 90 pounds, with a thin build and black curly hair; the second is black, aged 15 to 16, 5’7”, 120 pounds. No suspect descriptions were available for the remaining two suspects.

There’s another way out By Laurie Watt and Janis Ramsay

The first instalment of our series sheds light on the serious issue of youth suicide and its prevalence in the hope that awareness can aid suicide prevention

B

renda Markus waited for her s o n ’s b o d y temperature to drop before she was able to leave him. “ ( Pe o p l e ) t r i e d getting me out of the room, and I wouldn’t leave until he went cold. As soon as I took my hand off his chest, I said ‘OK, he’s cold.’ I lifted my hand and said ‘I accept.’ That was it. You can’t do anything more about death.” Her son was Alex Clarke, an 18-year-old who loved the outdoors, who committed suicide June 11 leaving behind his mom, sister, a girlfriend, many relatives, lots of friends and a job. The death of a child is a parent’s worst nightmare. Kari and Ken Smith can understand the devastation suicide can

cause. When their 17-yearold son, Cody, failed to show up at the breakfast table one February morning, the couple realized something was amiss and went upstairs to investigate. “My husband went up fi rst and I heard him screaming ‘no, no, no’ and then I remember screaming so loud and for so long,” Kari said. The reason why still torments the Smiths. “He was very strong-willed. We thought he had a great future. He talked about this future. I had no idea he couldn’t help himself. Why couldn’t he come to us? “He was our everything!” These parents are not alone in their anguish.

Each week, three Ontario teens end their lives, Children’s Mental Health Ontario (CMHO) reports. CMHO has represented and supported the providers of child and youth mental health treatment services throughout Ontario since 1972. Its core membership consists of more than 80 community-based children’s mental health centres that serve some 150,000 children and their families annually. Nationwide, there are 10 teens who kill themselves weekly and, for each one, there may be another 200 who attempt suicide, according to University of Ottawa research. In 2012, Kids’ Help Phone reported six per cent of the 5,000 calls received each week – which amounts to 300 calls – were related to suicide. Those considering suicide, youth affected by a suicide in their school or community, and those worried

about a friend, for example, would are a theme for many youth who be included in these statistics. commit suicide. In 2009 – the most recent year for “Although life is full of possibiliwhich Statistics Canada has data ties in your teen years, it’s also full on suicide – 474 people between of difficult choices and transitions,” ages 15 and 24 died Floyd explained. by suicide. “It can be troubleAnd those numNATIONWIDE, there some. “They’re trying bers, said CMHO are 10 teens who kill to find their way or President Gordon Floyd, aren’t accuthemselves weekly, place in their social rate. and strucand for each one, there circles “There’s a fair bit tures, and navigate may be another 200 what can be difficult of cleaning up of the data before it’s who attempt suicide, waters. “The whole prore p o r t e d ,” Fl oyd according to University cess turns out well explained. “It’s because of the of Ottawa research. for most of us, but shame (of suicide). it’s still a very diffiFor young people, cult one and causes apart from car accidents, suicide a huge amount of anxiety and that is the leading cause of death.” can cross the line to depression and CMHO research shows one in 10 feelings of hopelessness.” students in grades 7 to 12 reported Feelings of being underprivihaving seriously considered suileged or inadequate in some way cide. can also lead to these deaths.

Bullying can take a toll on kids who lack confidence >>>from page 44 others are,” Floyd said. “It’s a sense of falling behind and feeling excluded from the hopefulness others seem to feel.” Bullying can shake those who have a low self-image more profoundly, triggering an attempt to end their lives. “One-in-four kids in Ontario has been bullied in the past year. Most kids are able to deal with it and move on, but some kids are vulnerable because they don’t have the confidence and skills to take it in stride or bounce back,” Floyd said. There is hope. The key for parents is to raise a resilient child, who can cope with the bumps and bruises along the way, and grow into a resilient adult who can deal with the stresses of working in uncertain times, he said. Many mental health issues emerge before age 20. Ontario acknowledged this two years ago with a $257-million mental health strategy for children, which aims to address the long waiting lists by bolstering not only community supports but linking mental health nurses with schools. The earlier an individual can get help, the better chances he will acquire the tools he needs to be resilient enough to cope with his struggles. “Suicide is the end point for people whose mental health needs were not appropriately addressed,” Floyd said. “We have to get over the squeamishness about raising the possibility there’s a mental health issue at play and have the very focused deliberate outreach to the person who is struggling, to give them an opportunity to talk and give us the opportunity to connect them with the help they need.”

“Always having the doubt in your mind, will she do it again?” her mother said. “Did I say the right words? I didn’t want to set her off again.” There have been many tears within the family as the relationships begin to rebuild. Maddie is now laughing and talking with her brother instead of fighting with him, doing homework with her dad and hiking and doing photography with her mom. The family has put a lot of effort into spending time together and keeping communication open. “Listen to what your children are saying and always be there to support them,” Maddie’s mother said. “Hang in there, there is light at the end of the tunnel and if you can get through it together things will turn out.” Maddie has pruned her Facebook friends from more than 300 to 92, most of them relatives, and has changed her phone number. She changed schools in September, and once again loves waking up for classes. She is working to become a peer tutor at school, where one of the things she will be trained to do is help other students who are facing grief or suicidal thoughts. “No one should ever be afraid to need help,” she said. “People may judge you, but once you get help you’ll be able to ignore judgment. There is definitely life after.” - By Jennifer Bowman

Wilmington Tennis program coming to Etobicoke in January ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com Six-year-old Jahlil Joseph excitedly runs around the gym at Queen Victoria Public School during warm up. When it comes to hitting the tennis ball with the racket, the South Parkdale Grade 2 student does quite well for a child who, only a few weeks ago, had never held a tennis racket. Jahlil said he has played tennis on his Wii gaming system, but never in “real life”. He said he really enjoys tennis – so far. “I don’t think I like it better than basketball, but tennis is my second favorite,” Jahlil said. “But I really like it when we hit the ball back and forth.” Tennis has an air of being an elitist sport played at exclusive clubs with expensive rackets. But the City of Toronto has hundreds of courts, which are often free, open to the public and often empty. Now, a Toronto-based tennis instruction company is working to get young people like Jahlil onto those courts and playing tennis. Wilmington Tennis is a small company that runs a dispatch service for tennis instruction. They have a team of instructors who coach tennis in a recreational environment. “Part of what we do is we try to make tennis a more accessible sport,” explained Carolynna

Gabriel, the program director at Wilmington Tennis. If children can get their hands on a racket, some sneakers and even some basic instruction, they could fill those courts across Toronto, Gabriel said. “ T h e re i s a l o t o f research on community tennis and if you can get 25 to 50 hours of tennis instruction, be it in a group environment or private, you will have the fundamental skill set to go with a friend in a park and play tennis,” Gabriel said. Wilmington Tennis runs programs in about 12 schools across the GTA, and on Oct. 23 they started a special six-week, fully subsidized tennis instruction program at Queen Victoria Public School in South Parkdale, thanks to a grant from The Canadian Tire Jumpstart Foundation. In January Wilmington will start another subsidized program at Valleyfield Junior School in Etobicoke. “It will be the exact same format basically,” explained Morgan Oliver, program manager at W i l m i n g t o n Te n n i s. “Roughly 25 students, two coaches, subsidized programs and they all get a racket to take home with them as well.” Like Jahlil, fellow participant, eight-year-old Grade 3 student Winta

Habol also had never played tennis before Wilmington started in her school. Wielding a pink and blue racket that she picked out herself, Winta also said her favorite part is hitting the ball. “Maybe I will go and play tennis with my friends some-

time,” Winta said. Nearly 30 students, of diverse backgrounds, meet with coaches from Wilmington each Wednesday afternoon for instruction in the game. The program is for students in grades 2 and 3. It costs a $15, which goes to buy a racket,

which the children get to pick out and keep. Each week, instruction begins with a warm-up and then coaches work on the fundamentals such as grip, foot work, how to stand. Coaches then feed the students balls to hit and put them

through simple drills. After the fundamentals have been learned, coaches then get the students rallying with one-another as they offer instruction.
