Corporal receives hero’s welcome Province asked to

Rexdale native spent nine months in Afghanistan

keep lands for industry

Council wants to maintain lakeshore lands for employment

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Ask any of the kids at Melody Village Junior School to describe what Cpl. Victoria Kovatchev means to them and they answer simply, in one word. “Hero,” Nicholas Blackman and Alexis Nelles, both 10, said last Friday morning of Kovatchev, a Rexdale native who just returned from her first tour of duty in Kabul, Afghanistan earlier this month. Kovatchev was given a hero’s homecoming celebration – complete with an honour guard and bag piper, as well as plenty of flag waving and song singing – at Melody Village, the school she went to for daycare and kindergarten. As Kovatchev marched into the school’s gymnasium at the beginning of the school day, all 310 Melody Village students stood at attention, waving mini flags at her safe arrival home. And when the kids sang along to O Canada, Kovatchev broke down in happy tears through her salute. “It’s overwhelming, but in a good way – in a very good way,” she said. For the last nine months while she served overseas, Melody Village’s staff, students and surrounding community have banded together to send their “hero” 25 care packages full of letters of thanks, pictures, goodies and gifts. Those boxes, Kovatchev said,

were the highlight of her tour. “I wanted to tell you guys that all the letters you wrote me, the pictures you drew me and the gifts you sent were the best part of my tour,” she told the red-and-white clad, flag-waving students at the assembly. “When I was sad, when I was down, and when things got really, really hard in Afghanistan, reading some of the things you guys wrote

and looking at pictures you drew of me really brightened my day. I put them all over my room and all over my workshop, and I wanted you guys to know how much it meant to me.” Last week marked Kovatchev’s second visit to Melody Village this year. Her first meeting with the students was shortly before she shipped out on Feb. 29, when she came to visit her nephew – then a

student at the school – and all of his classmates. “Two weeks before I deployed, I came and I went class to class and met everyone. They sent me away with a whole bunch of candy and goodies,” Kovatchev said. “Then, when I was only (in Afghanistan) for a month or so, I got my first six boxes, followed by waves of more boxes full of goodies and toys.” >>>students’, page 5

Toronto council has endorsed a letter from Mayor Rob Ford to the provincial government, asking that the lands surrounding the Ontario Food Terminal and Mr. Christie’s Bakery be identified as provincially significant employment lands. Ford wrote the letter so as to prevent the owners of the bakery, Mondelez Canada, from redeveloping the bakery with condominiums. Earlier this fall, Mondelez announced that it would be laying off 550 workers there. Ford’s letter points not to just those jobs: but the nearby Ontario Food Terminal in the EtobicokeLakeshore ward. “The lakeshore site has the potential to employ a lot of people,” said Ford. “It could be in the hundreds, could possibly be in the thousands. Together with the nearby Ontario Food Terminal, thousands of jobs are directly affected by the future of these lands. Tens of thousands of jobs right across Ontario are indirectly or directly connected to these lands. Folks – I ask you. We’ve got to keep these lands for employment purposes.” >>>ontario, page 19

Clean water headed to Sahel region TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Tens of millions of litres of clean drinking water is on its way from a Canadian Relief Agency’s Etobicoke warehouse to the drought and famine-stricken Sahel region in West Africa. GlobalMedic’s Rapid Response Team loaded its shipment of 3.2 million Aquatab water purification tablets and 330,000 PUR sachets into cartons and onto trucks Monday morning to transport by sea con-

tainer to its UNICEF partners on the ground in Mauritania. More than 18 million people in the area stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea are estimated to be at risk of food insecurity and more than one million children younger than five years old are at risk of severe acute malnutrition, the United Nations (UN) reports. The region including the countries of Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and parts of Sudan, Cameroon and Nigeria is currently facing a host of issues, including drought, high

grain prices, environmental degradation and population displacement, coupled with chronic poverty and vulnerability, the UN reports. Normally, GlobalMedic teams set up hospitals and water purification units at ground zero in disaster zones. In Mauritania, UNICEF’s Mauritania country office will distribute the water purification items through NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) on the ground. Clean drinking water is critical to protect people from water-borne diseases.

“There’s famine, a food crisis and drought,” Matt Capobianco, GlobalMedic’s manager of emergency programs said in an interview. “Any type of situation where resources are stretched, there is always a lack of clean drinking water.” In October, United Nations’ secretary general Ban Ki-moon appointed former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi as his new special envoy for the Sahel region in West Africa.

See the Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol like you’ve never seen it before. Humber River Shakespeare Company’s annual touring production returns for a fifth season this December to its original, sold-out Victorian venue Montgomery’s Inn. This year’s expanded tour of southern Ontario includes stops at 11 historic buildings and old churches, including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and Casa Loma. What began as a staged reading has evolved into a full-scale, hourlong production of the poignant tale of greed, ghosts and salvation told by five actors playing 23 characters in Victorian costumes designed by Dora Award-winning Nina Okens. “Performing ‘A Christmas Carol’ is our way of giving back and sharing a universal message of hope and charity and kindness,” Humber River Shakespeare artistic director Kevin Hammond said in a statement. “It is a treat and an honour to perform the show each year and I am always amazed at how moved the audiences are.” The popular production sells out every year. A Christmas Carol comes to Montgomery’s Inn, 4709 Dundas St. W. at Islington Avenue at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6., Thursday, Dec. 13 and Friday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. There is also a 2 p.m. showing on Saturday, Dec. 8 and on Saturday, Dec. 22. The cast takes to St. Paul’s Anglican Church (Runnymede) on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m. A Christmas Carol travels to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinberg on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 1:30 p.m. Performance includes gallery admission. It plays at Casa Loma on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. Seating is limited. Guaranteed tickets are available online at www.humberrivershakespeare.ca. Tickets are $15 (adults) and $10 (children).

Infrastructure is a priority

The Etobicoke Guardian is published every Thursday and Friday at 175 Gordon Baker Rd., Toronto, ON M2H 0A2, by Toronto Community News, a Division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Lessons learned from making snap decisions

To the editor: Re: ‘Make infrastructure funding a priority,’ Editorial, Nov. 15 Canada’s mounting infrastructure crisis of crumbling bridges, potholes and traffic gridlock is costing more than $10 billion in lost productivity every year. For me and my New Democrat colleagues this is an issue that we, along with municipalities across Canada, have been pressing ever since the recent Canada Infrastructure Program came to an end. For us there is no doubt whatsoever that this should be a priority for the federal government.

A

fter contentious debate, Toronto Council has reversed the decision to ban plastic bags. The overwhelming vote to do so was brought upon due to the threat of legal challenges by retailers and the plastics industry that voiced their displeasure at the lack of public consultation. Rather than making a snap decision on such a major issue, council time could have been better spent if there was some consultation process to begin with. our view Let this be a lesson learned. Not all issues warrant a refPlastic bag erendum as we’ve elected our ban: listen to councillors to govern and represent the best interest of our the people respective wards. But there are some issues that have greater implications and interest within the community where they have to get it right. Industry, retail and a keenly interested public all need the opportunity to help direct the consideration of the ban – through public consultation. And there’s no shortage of major issues across the city that demand more input from the community. For example, ongoing discussion about a Torontobased casino should remain a priority with far reaching implications to the city from economic benefits to the social and health costs of gambling addictions. Any consultation process itself should also be opened to engage as many people as possible and not dominated by special interest groups or more vocal residents as it can be in town hall meetings. It’s easier said than done, of course. How many meetings are called where true public members attend? And when they do, what percentage of the population are actually represented? Never enough for any to claim to speak for any kind of majority of city residents. The hardest part of a politician’s job is to truly understand the desires and priorities of the people they serve. It’s subduing the lobby. It’s denying political pressure from compatriots. It’s pursuit of that feeling of knowing you know what the people want – and not what you simply think is good for them. Conversely, community engagement goes two ways. Residents need to accept responsibility for the actions taken by the politicians they put into office in a democratic fashion. In the end, the priority lies with the elected official to understand the person he or she is grateful and honoured to represent. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Ford court case offers opportunities to grow

P

erhaps one of the reasons that Mayor Rob Ford’s trouble has so captured the public’s attention is due to the number of lessons that it offers. Those looking for an example of what can happen to the headstrong and stubborn can give thought to the consequences of not seeking advice and ignoring warnings. Those who look at the practical side of matters can take away how unnecessary was this fall from grace, since council was about to rescind the integrity commissioner’s report by a large margin. Yet people are still grappling what to make of a law so imperfect that the presiding judge called it a “blunt instrument,” one that is exacting a tremendous penalty for “a modest amount of money which (Mayor Ford) endeavoured to raise for a legitimate charity.” Much of Justice Hackland’s judgment is critical of the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. But under that act, none of these considerations matter. If a member of council does not comply,

Beyond the headlines

david soknacki

removal from office is mandatory. To see if Mayor Ford can remain in office, Justice Hackland spent much of his judgment examining the act’s narrow exemptions point-by-point. He rejects inadvertence, since Mayor Ford’s speech and voting were deliberate. He cannot find the Mayor’s behaviour an “error in judgment” within the meaning of the law. Since the mayor balked at repayment the judge ruled that the amount was significant to the mayor, so the exemption of insignificance does not apply. By the end of the judgment, we are left with the stark conclusion that, under the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, Ford was in breach and that removal from office is required. Even with what Justice Hackland calls “significant mitigating circumstances’” he is able to

do little other than to allow Ford to seek election next term. Assuming the courts agree to allow Ford to remain in office during his appeal, the mayor’s political future will soon rest in the hands of Divisional Court. There he will face great challenges. New evidence cannot be introduced. He must not only overcome arguments from the original complaint, but also must convince Divisional Court that the closely reasoned decision of Justice Hackland was flawed. Given the facts, and the obvious intent of the act, a successful appeal will be a tough sell. At the same time, Divisional Court will be aware of the act’s flaws that Justice Hackland pointed out, including his opinion that Mayor Ford’s ill-fated speech at council was “an unfortunate but technical breach.” They will be aware that it is Mayor Ford’s first offence under the act, that all Torontonians will bear a significant expense to address a $3,000 problem, and that the court would be overturning an election. The indisputable facts,

the wording of the legislation, and the problem of a disproportionate mandatory sentence provision put Divisional Court in an interesting place. Should the court wish to soften the rigour of the law, it will have little choice but to push its influence beyond the act. Mitigating Mayor Ford’s penalty will probably require a form of judicial activism or discretion that runs completely counter to mandatory sentencing philosophy. And perhaps here we come to another lesson. The politics of the mayor and his closest allies have been founded on principles that include tightening laws and mandatory sentencing. Blindly taking this direction will surely cause the mayor to be removed from office. Only by relying on the court to interpret the legislation broadly and to allow itself discretion does the mayor have any chance of remaining. n David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief.

Students’ care packages were soldier’s ‘highlight’ of tour >>>from page 1 The Melody Village Care packages not only brightened Kovatchev’s day, but also those of the other soldiers who she worked alongside with as a mechanic in Kabul.

highlight of tour “It was the biggest highlight of our morale...everyone was excited when I got mail because it was for everyone. I would open up the boxes, and I would make the boys open up the boxes with me,” the Richview Collegiate grad recalled with a smile on her face. “Cookies and candies and cakes – you couldn’t get that kind of stuff over there, so it was definitely the highlight.” Kovatchev said the toys the students sent along in the care packages were also much appreciated by the Afghan children and the local orphanage she donated

them to. Melody Village teacher Louise Foster-Martin – known affectionately to the kids as Mrs. FM – said “Corporal Victoria” is the third such soldier the school has ‘adopted’ as their own. The first was “Capt. Canada,” a solider from Quebec, and the second was “Major Jim.” Her students, FosterMartin said, have taken a keen interest in their soldiers and were overjoyed when they heard that Kovatchev had returned home safely. soldier honoured “Today we have come together with our ribbons, our Canadian flags and our Canadian spirit to celebrate the homecoming of Cpl. Victoria,” she said during Friday’s homecoming. “Your bravery on behalf of Canada cannot be measured by words. We are very proud

of you and we pay tribute to you today with this homecoming celebration. You are a Canadian hero and we welcome you home.” In addition to being serenaded with Mariah Carey’s Hero, waving along to K’naan’s Wavin’ Flag and dancing with the kids to Kool and the Gang’s Celebration, Kovatchev was also presented with a veritable treasure trove of gifts: Olympic memorabilia, Canadian flag luggage, movie vouchers, restaurant gift certificates, and – the highlight – a pair of tickets to attend the ballet of her choice at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, where she now lives. But for Kovatchev, the biggest gift is simply being back in Canada, surrounded by loved ones. “It was different over there – difficult. But I’m home now,” she said, smiling through tears.

Maximize profits on your investment property Real estate investors have many reasons for making such investments, but one of the more common motives behind a decision to invest is that real estate is still widely considered a sound investment, one that many people wish they could afford to make. Real estate investors want to improve the value of the property. It does not have

to involve a complete overhaul or any other dramatic changes. In fact, there are several simple ways investors can improve their real estate investments and improve their chances of turning a large profit when they decide to sell a property. Carefully vet prospective tenants. One of the easiest ways a property can fall into disrepair is to allow bad tenants

to move into the space. It’s understandable that investors want to get a property occupied as quickly as possible so they can use tenants’ rents to pay for the property. But bad tenants can cause damage to the property. When looking to fill a vacancy, establish a minimum income requirement for prospective tenants and ask applicants to produce proof of in-

An easy way to maximize your profits on an investment property is to work quickly when turning property over after a tenant moves out. This includes painting and cleaning the apartment. The process should go smoothly if you properly vetted tenants and the vacant unit did not suffer sdamage while the previous tenants were living there.

Plastic bag ban nixed City snow crews not City staff to study other ways to curb use of bags betting on mild winter DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

The bag ban is off — at least for now. Toronto council voted overwhelmingly to put the brakes on a new bylaw that was to have banned reusable plastic bags in Toronto retailers as of Jan. 1 next year. The bylaw had been approved back in the summer, when Willowdale Councillor David Shiner moved an amendment to a motion by Mayor Rob Ford to end the mandatory plastic bag fee imposed by the previous administration. Both the old fee, and Shiner’s amendment, were intended to curb the use of plastic bags and keep them out of both landfills and the environment. Since then, the snap decision had retailers and the plastics industry up in arms, and the city was facing two lawsuits

over the bylaw, which had no public consultation. On Wednesday, council had before it the final draft of the bylaw — which ordinarily would be a routine matter. But in light of the legal challenges, council voted on a confidential set of recommendations which amount to the cancellation of the bag fee. “I think the public will be very pleased with this,” said public works and infrastructure committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong. “I believe we made a significant mistake in the way this was adopted and I’m hopeful that council will learn from that.” After the vote, MinnanWong said the city had given instructions to staff to go to industry groups with an offer. “My suspicion is that they will be quite satisfied with the decision that council has made

and the instruction we’ve given to our lawyers,” he said. Industry representatives at the meeting were pleased. “We’re very happy council made the right decision today on behalf of all Torontonians,” said Joe Hruska of the Canadian Plastic Bag Association. “It will save thousands of jobs. It’s a confidential report so we don’t know what’s in there. But the best we can tell right now is the bag ban is not enacted.” But the same couldn’t be said for environmentalists. “This is a bad decision for the environment; this is a bad decision for Torontonians,” said Emily Alfred with the Toronto Environmental Alliance. Council also approved a motion to study other ways to curb the use of plastic bags. That report will come forward to the public works and infrastructure committee in June of 2013.

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Toronto got off easy last winter, with mild temperatures and very little snowfall. And while Toronto’s works department is hoping for more of the same this winter, they’re not betting on it. “We’re hoping for another mild winter but we’re ready if we have a heavy snowfall,” said public works and infrastructure committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong Tuesday, Nov. 20, as the city unveiled its 2012-2013 winter snow clearing plan. The mild winter past has left the city with a $20 million surplus on top of its annual $86 million snow clearing budget — but that surplus could evaporate if the rest of November and December prove more blustery. To that end, the city has readied its fleet of 1,100 snow

clearing vehicles to keep the keep the roads and sidewalks clear: 600 snow plows, 300 sidewalk plows and 200 salt trucks. They’ll be deployed to various types of roadways depending on the severity of the storm. Once snow begins, the city sends out salt trucks to main roads and expressways. When the snow reaches 2.5 centimetres, snow clearing starts on expressways; at five centimetres, arterial roads will be cleared. When it hits eight centimetres, local roads will get ploughed. “Some people think that once a few centimetres fall on the ground you should be on my street. Well, that’s the standard,” Minnan-Wong said. He said the city is ready to deal with most snowfalls, but admitted that if the city gets hit with an unusually large snowfall — such as the one in 1999 that caused then-Mayor

Mel Lastman to call in the army to clear snow and make the city the butt of jokes — it would be a challenge. “We’re ready for winter,” he said. “I don’t think anyone was ready for 1999. We’ve got enough resources but in the case of a 1999 storm, if that were to happen all over again everybody would be challenged to deal with it.” As always, the city is asking residents in downtown neighbourhoods to clear the snow on sidewalks in front of their houses, but elsewhere the city will endeavour to clear sidewalk snow itself. The city is also getting ready to deal with another bane of winter: frozen watermains. The city is continuing to replace aging watermains, but crews are on call 24/7 to repair any that break. Anyone seeing broken water mains is advised to call 311 to report it.

>>>from page 1 In a letter, Ontario Food Terminal Board Chair James Reaume made it clear that the food terminal – the largest of its kind in the country – is a key piece of infrastructure for the $39-billion farming and food sector in the province. “The conversion of these two proposed employment lands to sensitive residential uses in and around the

Ontario Food Terminal will greatly diminish its role within the city and the province,” he wrote. “It will reduce employment opportunities; and it will reduce the economic value inherent within this facility.” Etobioke-Lakeshore Councillor Peter Milczyn said that mixing in residential with the busy food terminal would be a recipe for disaster. “There is no more impor-

tant point of entry for good food access in the city than the Ontario Food Terminal,” he said. “Just as Christies, or Kraft, or Mondelez warned us for years do not place too much intensification around us because it will push us out – well that day has come. Now you have the food terminal saying the same things: do not create conditions that will impede the flow of traf-

fic into our site, do not create a situation where there will be complaints about truck traffic through the night, or a person who doesn’t like the look of cabbages or salads

out their window. We have to take a strong position on employment lands: we’re not going to support this kind of application.” If the province designates

the lands a provincially significant employment area, it would prevent the rezoning of any of the land at 2150 Lake Shore Blvd. W. to residential.
