Be a santa to a senior

Staff photo/IAN KELSO

TIME TO GIVE: The Be A Santa to a Senior program kicked off recently, where people can visit one of two special Christmas trees in Etobicoke – one at the Shoppers Home Health Care at 5230 Dundas St. W., the other at Tapestry Village Gate West at 15 Summerland Terrace – featuring paper ornaments with the first names of individual seniors and their respective gift requests. Interested holiday shoppers can buy the items and return them (unwrapped) where staff will wrap and deliver the gifts. Here are Tim Smale, GM of Tapestry Village Gate West, Brenda Enright, managing director of Home Instead, and Natalia Dziubaniwsky, Etobicoke Services for Seniors.

When 10-year-old Tommy Lane heard a radio report detailing the struggles of Filipinos living in aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, he immediately knew he had to do something to help. “We were driving to school in the car one day and turned on the radio, and that’s when I heard what was going on,” the Sir Adam Beck Junior School student explained. “My mom said we should collect some blankets from our house to send, and I thought, why don’t we do it with the school, too?” Tommy’s mom, Teres Edmonds, thought Tommy’s idea to get the whole school community involved was a great one, and so as soon as they arrived at Sir Adam Beck – where her budding young philanthropist is in Grade 5 – she and Tommy went straight to Principal Michael Kanalec with the blanket drive idea. “We’re always encouraging our kids to take on that global responsibility and perspective,” said Kanalec, “so I said to him, ‘Tommy, you have my full support. Run with it.’ And I’m glad I did, because it turned into a very exciting, wonderful leadership opportunity for a group of our eldest kids in the school.” The week-long blanket drive took place this month and was headed up by Tommy’s Grade 5 class and their teacher, Mrs. Myhal. They collected upwards of 150 blankets to send to the Philippines – where Typhoon Haiyan, which made landfall on Nov. 8, wreaked widespread destruction, killing more than 5,000 people and displacing another four million. Tommy said it’s nice to know first-

hand that kids really can make a difference. “It feels really good,” he said. Tommy and his Sir Adam Beck classmates aren’t the only Etobicoke students working hard to lend a helping hand to victims of the Philippines typhoon. In addition to participation in the board-wide Toonie Tuesday event last week, local Toronto Catholic District School Board students have hosted a whole range of school fundraisers to help out, including: pyjama days; bake sales; sales of Filipino foods; dress down days; benefit concerts; raffles; family movie nights; and the sale of student-made buttons, just to name a few. West-end Toronto District School Board schools, meanwhile, have also been busy raising relief funds. Here are some examples of just a few of the fundraising activities organized by Etobicoke public school children: n Bloorlea Middle School: Grade 6 students initiated a jelly bean fundraiser, while Grade 8 kids organized a toonie drive;

n Karen Kain School of the Arts: school organized a coin drive through Me to We, and also held an international food fair fundraiser; n Etienne Brule Junior Schools: students held a two-day bake sale; n Islington Junior Middle School: student parliament organized a number of fundraisers, from candy cane sales, to a dance, to a bake sale; n James S. Bell Junior Middle School: student parliament asked that funds raised from a recent Halloween dance fundraiser be donated to typhoon relief; n Park Lawn Junior Middle School: the school’s Free the Children club plan to run a “guess how many in the jar” fundraiser; n Second Street Junior Middle School: donations raised through an ongoing clothing drive will be donated to typhoon relief; n Seventh Street Junior School: students are selling homemade bracelets as a fundraiser; n Sunnylea Junior School: hosted a bake sale, with proceeds going to the Canadian Red Cross.

Recreational needs, such as ice time, require discussion

Write us

T

he increasing demand for the necessary funds for ice time is a serious, ongoing challenge in Toronto. In this month’s feature, we look at the rising cost of ice time in the city. With Toronto facing its own budget limitations, funds are scarce for new capital projects such as indoor arenas, which would help meet additional needs. Newer facilities, such as the Buckingham Arena complex at Downsview Park, tend to be built and operated by the private sector – and that ice time is even more costly. But we are seeing municipal funds going toward smaller, outdoor projects. The good news is that there is growth in the city’s free outdoor ice offerings – the latest being the $3.4 million facility at Greenwood and Dundas streets, which opened last weekend. Last year, a new outdoor rink opened at Cedarvale Park in York. Renovations for a twin outdoor our view pad at Dieppe Park in East York are nearly complete. So what Outdoor rinks needs to be done? Access to recreation is a a priority for smart community investment. Of potential concern is a communities recent survey conducted of 1,011 Canadian parents by Ipsos Reid on behalf of RBC, which showed 60 per cent of respondents named ‘cost of equipment and instruction’ as a top barrier to learning how to skate, while 46 per cent named ‘access of ice’ as another top barrier. In order to ensure optimal access, we encourage the continued development, funding and maintenance of these outdoor projects in neighbourhoods. As for the thornier issue of indoor ice it’s a contentious issue, one that sees alternating pressure on user fees and property tax hikes to help pay the bills. Budget deliberations kicked off this week and councillors are grappling with the cost pressures of a multi-billion dollar budget, where they are tasked with finding efficiencies, maintaining existing service levels and dedicating money for new projects such as the Scarborough subway – all while keeping any tax increase to a minimum. It’s a tall order. In one respect, indoor ice time is no different than other public services such as transit. We will get what we pay for and what we deem to be a priority.

Mayor Ford makes case he’s no gelding

M

ayor Rob Ford may have been politically neutered by his colleagues on Toronto council, but on Monday, he was anxious to prove that he’s no gelding. That was when city staff unveiled their proposed 2014 operating and capital budgets. These are enormously complex documents, but here are some of the basics: property taxes will go up 2.5 per cent for homeowners – and that figure includes a 0.5 per cent special levy to pay for a subway in Scarborough. The Land Transfer Tax, estimated to bring in $335 million, will stay at the same rate as it was in 2013. Now these are not the basics as Mayor Ford had explained them. He has been dining out these past 11 months on a promise of a tax increase of no more than 1.75 per cent in 2014, and a 10 per cent cut to the Land Transfer Tax.

david nickle the city When Toronto council approved the idea of a 0.5 per cent property tax levy to pay for nearly a billion dollars in city costs for the Scarborough subway, Ford said that amount would be rolled into the 1.75 per cent increase. No one agreed with the mayor on this strategy except his brother, Councillor Doug Ford. But that didn’t stop Mayor Ford and the rhetorical bulldozer he brought to budget committee. The budget, he said, was an example of what happens when you take mayoral powers away from a guy like him. Joe Pennachetti, the city manager, had told Ford that it would be possible to cut the Land Transfer Tax and deliver a 1.75 per cent property tax increase,

It was a bravura performance, ably supported by Doug Ford. It, of course, had little to do with the facts.

subway included. The “gravy train” – that 2010 shibboleth that helped make Councillor Ford into Mayor Ford — is up and running again, he said, just days after council had so cruelly and undemocratically stripped him of his powers. Et tu, Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly. It was a bravura performance, ably supported by Doug Ford. It, of course, had little to do with the facts. City Manager Pennachetti was quick to say he had never told the mayor that cutting the Land Transfer Tax was possible. Chief Financial Officer Rob Rossini

pointed out later that the 0.5 per cent subway levy could not be rolled into the property tax increase for other services, because council had twice directed that no monies dedicated to other services be transferred to the subway. As an aside, the Ford brothers’ assertion they’ve saved $1 billion over the term is also bogus. In terms of actual cuts to city spending, the number is closer to $350 million. The city manager would put the savings just shy of $800 million, by factoring things like better-than-expected performance of city bonds and favourable labour agreements. But cuts in spending? $350 million. So this is how it’s going to be for the rest of the term: untruths, half-truths, and innuendo, bundled up in rhetorical flourishes from three years ago.

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

Makeup magic defines the day at Etobicoke’s Santa Claus Parade ‘Well-oiled machine’ – team of artists make up 150 characters in 2.5 hours

TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com There are no long winter’s naps. No visions of sugar plums. And the Christmas mice are stirring. An electricity buzzes in the air. Excitement. Anticipation. Wonder. It’s 7:30 a.m. and the sun has just risen on the first Saturday of December. Penguins, pirates, polar bears, toy soldiers – and yes, mice – sit on school chairs outside a Second Street Junior Middle School classroom. It’s almost show time. By 10 a.m., about 150 children dwarfed in oversized costumes, teens and adults will be magically transformed into rosy-cheeked, detailed characters, including mainstays Snow White, Cinderella and Dudley the Dragon in the creative hands of professional makeup artist Al ‘Uncle Al’ Bowers. Makeup artist Kimberley Whitchurch and an eager team of repeat volunteers, including Wendy Goodine and her daughter, Riley Watson, assist in the frenzied production. Bowers makes up the first mouse, the first bunny, the first soldier, and so on. That mouse sidles up to the next mouse, as either Whitchurch or a volunteer tries to replicate Bowers’ makeup artistry on participants’ ‘white faces’ already painted by volunteers. First come the characters at the front of the parade followed in quick succession by the remainder. The “well-oiled machine” has operated for more than a decade, circulating through character after character who then head to Dwight Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard West to take part in the annual Christmas tradition that is the Etobicoke-Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade. “It’s show day. We’re run off our feet. We don’t talk,” said Brenda Siddall, the parade’s makeup co-ordinator for the past 15 years. “The kids

line up. I yell, ‘Where are the bunnies? Where are the mice?’ The kids are absolutely excited beyond belief. They’re very well-behaved. That’s the treat. They’re not just walking in the parade, but walking as a character.” Next Saturday, Dec. 7 is the 23rd annual parade, which makes its way west along Lake Shore to Thirty-Sixth Street in Long Branch. As many as 60,000 gloved and scarfed onlookers, coffee or hot chocolate in hand, will take to the street to watch. It will air on Rogers Cable 10 throughout December. Mike “Pinball” Clemons is this year’s parade grand marshal. The Leafs and the Argos called organizers to offer their respective mascots, Carlton the Bear and Jason. Pachi, the rainbow-coloured porcupine 2015 Pan Am Games’ mascot will be there, along with a Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics’ representative. “This year, the most amaz-

This year, the most amazing people have been calling us to be in the parade. It’s incredible. It’s a real community event. At 9:40 a.m., you walk out on the street and nobody is there. Then 60,000 people show up.” –Judy Brandow, entries co-ordinator for the parade

ing people have been calling us to be in the parade,” entries co-ordinator Judy Brandow said. “It’s incredible. It’s a real community event. At 9:40 a.m., you walk out on the street and nobody is there. Then 60,000 people show up.” Fifteen floats and eight bands take to the Lake Shore, in addition to service clubs

including Rotary, Moose Lodge, joined by local organizations such as LAMP Community Health Centre, Storefront Humber, the sea cadets, Scouts, Girl Guides and the Etobicoke Spectrum Baton Club. Santa returns. This year, St. Nick laces up his skates to join children on the skating trail in Col. Samuel Smith Park at the foot of Kipling Avenue after the parade. Bowers cites the elves, The Nutcracker soldiers, princesses and – “I love doing clowns” – among his favourites to paint. “They’re there in costume. We’re just putting the finishing touches on,” said Bowers, who gives lectures to Clown Canada on face painting. “You’re doing it for people who will be seeing it 20 to 30 feet away on the street. We have good rapport, a good system. It’s an excellent gig.” Bowers keeps a book of notes on character makeup,

including Aladdin, Dudley the Dragon and Snow White. Polar bears are the most challenging; creating a black muzzle on a nose that looks 3D on an all-white face, he said. After 12 years, the makeup artist behind the parade has never actually seen it live: “I’ve been there since 7:30 a.m. As soon as I’m finished, I’m in my car headed home.” Whitchurch describes the parade as “absolutely one of my favourite jobs of the Christmas season”. “The parade is such a pleasure,” Whitchurch said. “Seeing the same smiling volunteers every year, painting the little penguins and pirates, the mice, the soldiers, the Christmas trees. Every year it just falls so smoothly into place. We set up. We go, go, go. Then suddenly it’s 10 o’clock and the work is all done. Siddall and former longtime parade chair Liz Porritt recruited Denise Dickin and

Susan Nagy to the makeup room in 2003. Nagy’s husband, former animator and illustrator Scott Collie, also paints faces on parade day. “Where it’s most amazing and raises us above the average community play is Al (Bowers). He really is a genius with the animals he does,” said Dickin, who made notes in 2003 on the detailed makeup for each character still referenced today. “Sometimes you’ll see a 200-pound clown sitting on a primary school chair waiting for his turn to get his makeup on...It’s an inter-generational project. Whole groups of teenage girls participate.” Jen Pimentel, 13, will repeat her turn this year as a parade elf with her friend, Olivia DiLeo, as they join four friends to usher in the parade’s grand finale – Santa. Jen has been in the parade the past four years, and on parade morning, helps her parade volunteer co-ordinator Mom, Lana Pimentel. Teens receive school community hours for their service. “I like being an elf,” said Jen, who has also been a Christmas present and a pirate. “It’s fun to be in front of Santa. The music is playing, and the little kids are so excited to see you. It’s really fun to walk in it, and to volunteer.” Nagy said she revels in the makeup room’s atmosphere, and the excitement brought by the parade. “It makes you feel you are part of something special. It is special. Not a lot of communities have a Santa Claus Parade,” said Nagy. “Kids may ask you for a dollop of red here or a sparkle there and you’re happy to help them out. Moms just beam when you’re working on their child. It’s a lovefest. It really is a great way to kick off the season.”

Hearing loss affects Canadians of all ages

Gail Maron and Elka Gold, Audiologists at HearCare

Hearing loss is the fastest growing, and one of the most prevalent, chronic conditions facing Canadians today.More Canadians have hearing loss than have difficulty with vision.Over 50 per cent of Canadians over the age of 65 do have some degree of hearing loss,but there is an increasing number of people in their 30s and 40s showing signs of hearing loss. It seems to be a commonly held belief that hearing loss is an old person’s problem. But in our modern and noisy world, that is simply not the case.

If you are having difficulty hearing,the cause and any recommended treatment will be related to where in the ear the problem is occurring. In the outer or middle ear the loss is often temporary and treatable,called a conductive hearing loss.Some examples of a conductive hearing loss include:wax in the outer ear, outer or middle ear infection, eardrum perforation or stiffness of the middle ear bones.If the problem is in the cochlea or along the auditory nerve,the loss is called sensorineural and is usually permanent.

Some causes include:aging,noise exposure,heredity,head injury,illness,certain medications or sudden hearing loss. If you have a combination of a conductive and a sensorineural hearing loss, this is called a mixed hearing loss. If you are having difficulty with hearing, the audiologists at HearCare can examine the ear, remove ear wax if it is present, evaluate the degree of hearing loss, diagnose the type of hearing loss, refer you for assessment by an otolaryngologist,if needed,and provide

hearing aids and aural rehabilitation for treatment of permanent hearing loss. Take the first steps to better hearing or to preserving the good hearing that you enjoy. Call HearCare Audiology and Hearing Aid Clinic, 416-241-4327, to book your complimentary hearing assessment with Elka Gold or Gail Maron, Audiologists at HearCare.

Weekend Closure

Lakeshore West GO Train Line November 30 - December 1, 2013

The City of Toronto is removing the Dufferin Street bridge and in order to do it quickly and safely, GO needs to shut down train service on the Lakeshore West line.

What You Need to Know

There will be no GO Train service on the Lakeshore West line from: Saturday, November 30, 2:00 a.m. — Monday, December 2, 2:00 a.m. Regular service will resume as of 5:00 a.m. on Monday, December 2. The GO Buses that normally connect to trains in Hamilton will also be cancelled during this time. Bus service between Niagara and Burlington will run between Niagara and Hamilton instead.

The Alternatives

To help get you to where you need to go, we will be running trains on our Milton line all weekend. Most Milton line GO stations are not too far from Lakeshore West stations. We’re also increasing bus service on our Hamilton-Toronto Express route.

Thank You

We understand the inconvenience this may cause our customers and thank you for your patience while we work with the City of Toronto to complete this important project. For schedule information please visit gotransit.com. 416 869 3200 1 888 GET ON GO (438 6646) TTY 1 800 387 3652 Pour plus de renseignements, veuillez visiter le site gotransit.com ou composer un des numéros ci-dessus.

Buckingham Sports Properties, one of two major private players in Toronto (the other being Canlan Ice Sports), quietly opened up the Buckingham Arena fourplex in the fall in the bustling new sports centre at Downsview Park. John Cook, vice-president of Buckingham, which already operates Chesswood Arenas in North York and Westwood Arenas in Etobicoke (fourand five-pad facilities, respectively) said his company recognizes the contribution of public facilities, whether outdoor or indoor. “Those municipal rinks are the ones that are building the foundation for later-on years when the more competitive GTHL teams need facilities like ours, and then of

Shop Locally

isuniversally appreciated. However, the one aspect of shopping for jewellery that can often prove to be a stumbling block is the price. Spending big can feel great once in a while, but for many it is just not practical. Luckily, Crawford Jewellers can offer you an alternative: high quality, affordable jewellery.

Last week, CBC Television’s Steven and Chris joined Canada’s Governor General David Johnston’s recently launched initiative My Giving Moment (www.mygivingmoment.ca) by recognizing Palumbo’s decade-long charitable giving with a complete makeover. “Yolanda is an amazing woman; an inspiration to all her family and friends,” said Pamela Deveraux, her CNIB learning and mobility instructor who has since become a

friend. Devereaux nominated Palumbo for the makeover. CNIB’s support helped encourage Palumbo to start a family. The couple’s son, Julian, is now eight. Recently, he started reading his bedtime stories to his mom. “I’m blessed,” Palumbo said. “My husband is amazing, and I’m blessed to have my son. God took something away, but look what I have.

Something we need to talk about Part 3 of the series shares one family’s story to highlight the need for discussion

By Alison Brownlee

J

ulie Robbins was bubbly, athletic, popular and known for helping others. She also suffered from depression. “We always did treat it as an illness,” said her mother Elaine. “I encouraged Julie to speak freely of it because it was an illness.” Despite medication, counselling and support from her family, Julie lost her battle with depression while at university, shortly after she turned 21. Tana Nash, president of the Ontario Association for Suicide Prevention, encourages everyone to discuss mental illness and thoughts of suicide. “It’s OK to talk to somebody,” Nash said. “Break down the myth that asking about it will plant the

seed.” Thoughts of suicide are less about wanting to die and more about feeling hopeless, and the fear and shame associated with those feelings can isolate and prevent someone from getting help. Asking a loved one whether they are considering suicide will not plant the idea, but create an opportunity to talk about other options, reduce risk and save lives. Nash said while a person considering suicide often won’t say so, subtle hints such as crying, unkempt appearance, withdrawal, giving away possessions, declarations of hopelessness, despair, anger, numbness or sharing stories of traumatic experiences can be some of the invitations to talk. And if someone admits to considering suicide, listen with empathy and understanding, while offering to help find crisis intervention or

counselling resources to keep them safe. A person with thoughts of suicide should never be left alone. Nash, who has lost her grandmother and sister to suicide, said the majority of suicides are linked to mental health problems, and are preventable. “It’s the 10th leading cause of death in Canada and we need to do something about it,” she said. “We are losing way too many people every year to a preventable death.” That prevention, she said, is everyone’s responsibility. “We need to work together to learn more as neighbours, co-workers and friends,” she said. Help can include medication, counselling, nutrition or sleep, as well as coping strategies or communication training. Nash admitted talking about emotions can be challenging because it opens up vulnerabilities. But mental illness is not like a broken arm, easily identified by others and fixed in a hospital emer-

gency department. “We have to learn how to talk about our emotions and communicate those feelings so we can get the better help we need,” she said.

After I hung up the phone, a light went on in my head and I said to my husband, ‘Oh my God, that was a goodbye phone call’. – Elaine Robbins

And preventing suicide can also prevent the enduring pain felt by the family or community left behind. “It’s heartache like no other kind of grief because of all the questions that come up and those feelings connected to losing someone,” Nash said. Julie’s mother, Elaine, said the death of a friend in her daughter’s final year at Gravenhurst High School triggered her depression.

Julie was taking medication and undergoing counselling by the time she enrolled in Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. She came home several times that September, including for her 21st birthday spent with family, friends and her boyfriend. She seemed to be managing. Ever ything changed by Thanksgiving. Julie told her mom she wanted to return home. She agreed to continue university through distance education courses. She left her parents on Thanksgiving Monday. Julie called her parents that evening and something about the conversation unsettled her mother. “After I hung up the phone, a light went on in my head and I said to my husband, ‘Oh, my God, that was a goodbye phone call,’” Elaine said. Her husband, Dave, then called Julie. It was too late. Julie ended up in hospital on life support because of an overdose. She suffered cardiac arrest and >>>REPRESSING, page 45

The first time Keane saw the Hip was in Bala with Daniel. “It was incredible to experience this moment together,” she said. On April 28, 2009, Daniel committed suicide at the cottage. He was 23 years old. This summer, Keane had the opportunity to meet Hip lead singer Gord Downie, and she told him about Daniel. After his set they spoke again. He said: ‘Thank you for telling me about Daniel. I played harder because of him,’” she said.

EDITOR’S NOTE

Make sure to keep the discussion alive This concludes our three-part series on suicide among young people in Ontario. Our goal has been to provide some compelling case studies of youth in need, some signs for parents to watch for and some hope for the future of our youth. Simply put, we’ve learned through our discussions with experts, our discussions with parents of youth who have committed suicide and discussion with others who have lived through the darkness and realize there is a bright future, and we hope you have, too. We’ve learned that this topic kept in a closet will not be fixed. We’ve learned that there are many, many people and agencies poised to help

a troubled teen, a parent in need, or surviving family members cope with a tragedy. We encourage you to keep the discussion alive. As parents, friends and mentors, we encourage you to keep abreast of your teen’s activities and build deep relationships with those you love. In a perfect world we’d love to eradicate the stories of pain and see them replaced with stories of hope. Every time.

TELL US WHAT YOU THINK If you have a story to share about youth suicide or an opinion on our series, please feel free to share it with us. Email etg@ insidetoronto. com. Our newspaper is here to support you and our community and we value whatever feedback you are able to offer.
