Basketeers looking for help to fill baskets for Thanksgiving

@ETGuardian

MURAL MASTERPIECE

CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Etobians looking to pass on the spirit of Thanksgiving this weekend need not look any further than The Queensway Canadian Tire – one of 10 stores across the province offering special deals to Basketeers. The Basketeers – a 3,500-volunteer strong group founded by Etobicoke’s own Cheryl Stoneburgh – is now in their 13th year of providing holiday care baskets for abused women starting a new life after leaving the shelter system. Last year, with the help of Canadian Tire, the group was able to generate 1,685 baskets to support 39 women’s shelters in eight different cities. Stoneburgh, a recent recipient of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal, said they’re hoping to match, if not surpass, that goal again this year – especially since they’ve added another shelter to their roster of recipients. But they need a little help to push them to their goal – and they’re seeking new recruits. “It’s still hard times. People who used to do three baskets, are doing two this year; and those who used to do two are doing one,” she said, noting that with six weeks to go until the end of their drive, the GTA Basketeers are just around halfway to their goal of 800 baskets. “We’re so grateful for all of our supporters, but we haven’t seen the end of difficult times.” >>>BASKETS, page 9

Young Somali deaths ‘devastating’ TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Six young Somali men shot dead since June. Families and the Somali community reeling, grief-stricken, searching for answers. “It has devastated our commu-

nity,” said Dr. Mohamed Gilao, a Somali community leader. “It has devastated the Toronto community. For one family to lose two young men with potential, it’s devastating.” Ahmed Hassan, 24, was shot dead at the Eaton Centre on June 2. Hussein Hussein, 23, killed on June 23. Abdulle Elmi, 25, Hassan’s cousin,

killed on July 8. Abdulaziz Farah, 28, murdered on Sept. 8. Then friends Suleiman Ali from Etobicoke and Warsame Ali, from Maple, both 26, murdered behind townhouses in the John Garland Boulevard-Jamestown Crescent area around 1:20 a.m. on Sept. 18. Police say the men did not live in

the area. Homicide investigators said they have not been able to piece together a motive for the killing. Officers are looking to locate missing items of clothing the men were last seen wearing. A light blue threequarter length shirt with small Air >>>WITNESSES, page 20

Backpacks 101 Project surpasses its goal Fourth shelter benefits due to generous donations TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com The Backpacks 101 Project has surpassed its goal again this year and added a new shelter to its recipients. Monique D’Sa started the project six years ago with a modest goal: to fill 20 backpacks with school supplies for children who live with their mom in Women’s Habitat shelter in Etobicoke where the Royal York South mother of three had previously volunteered. This past month, 159 children went back to school with brand-new bags and supplies thanks to the generosity of local residents and businesses, D’Sa reported. “We could not do this project each year without the help of individual donors in our community, thank you,” D’Sa said in a statement. “You have added many smiles to children’s faces this September. Your generosity is appreciated.” In recent years, D’Sa’s project has donated backpacks filled with school supplies to children and youth at three Etobicoke shelters: Women’s Habitat, Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter, as well as youth

enrolled in the Stay in School program at Youth Without Shelter, which aids homeless youth. This year, donors’ generosity enabled the project to expand to include The Jean Tweed Centre, a treatment centre for women with substance abuse and/or problem gambling. Backpacks provided to the centre were distributed to children in its Pathways to Healthy Families program, Strengthening Families program, and to children of women in the residential program. Example for children “Teaching my kids is one of the reasons I do it,” D’Sa said of her The Backpacks 101 Project. “That’s one reason I’d like to see kids get in their piggy banks and take out $1 or $5 and go shopping with their mom to pick up something for another child.” In particular, D’Sa thanked Scotiabank, Polk Canada and Fill Your Own for its 2012 donations. Scotiabank’s financial donation allowed D’Sa to fill more backpacks and to send high school students back to class with a calculator, USB

stick, a lock and a geometry set, as well as all the basic school supplies. POLK Canada’s office donation drive enabled the addition this year of Jean Tweed as a recipient. MUZART offered their space as a drop-off location. Fill Your Own entrepreneur Annette Yang donated 120 of her uniquely designed stainless steel water bottles. D’Sa is already getting started on her project’s 2013 donation drive. She collects new donated items year-round. Blocks of construction paper, scissors, pencil crayons, pencil sharpeners, pencils, pens, duotangs, markers, crayons, geometry sets, glue sticks/bottles, scientific calculators, binders and lunch bags are needed for children, among other items. Donors may help in many ways. Children’s classes can fill an ecofriendly backpack. Collect school supplies in lieu of birthday gifts. Hold an office challenge at work. Collect supplies within your book club, play group or other organizations. Tell friends about the project. Email info@backpacks101.org for more information or to donate.

Etobicoke cooks ply their passion on new show Winning recipes will be sold in stores CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Two Etobicoke home cooks have chopped, diced, whisked and blended their way onto Recipe to Riches, earning themselves a one-in-21 chance to win a $250,000 grand prize and have their recipes made into President’s Choice products. New Toronto’s Tracey Rigden will show off her dulce de leche brownies on the Oct. 31 episode of the Food Network reality cooking show, while Princess Ann Manor area resident Mary Rocto will give the judges a chance to sample her jerk chicken buns on the Nov. 14 episode. If they hope to win, the two Etobicoke foodies will have to impress Recipe to Riches expert food panelists Laura Calder (French Food at Home) Tony Chapman (Capital C) and Dana McCauley (Janes Family Foods) with their homegrown recipes, which will be judged on taste, presentation, originality, the story behind the recipe and its suitability to become a mass-produced grocery store product.

Mary Rocto For aspiring cooking show host Rocto, the appeal of Recipe to Riches wasn’t just the huge cash prize, but the chance to cook for the whole country. “I’ll be honest, having my jerk chicken bun made into a PC Product? I mean, that’s a dream,” she enthused. “Canada tasting and eating my product everyday? Every time they’d bite into it, it would be like getting a big hug from me.” Cooking, for Rocto, has been a lifelong passion born of an Italian family upbringing that centred

around food. The recently laid off wife and mother said she’s been cooking since she was a young girl and joked that, while some are born with silvers spoon in their mouths, she was born with a wooden spoon in hand – to stir the tomato sauce with. “I love to cook and bake. That’s all I do; that’s who I am,” she said. “My family and my friends are everything to me, so that’s what I do for them – I cook and bake.” Rocto chose her jerk chicken bun to enter into the competition because she believes it’s representative of multicultural Canada – the sweet bun is European, the jerk chicken is a tribute to her husband’s Jamaican heritage, and the barbecue flavouring is North American. “I was able to bring in so many different flavours and ideas from different parts of the world,” she said, explaining that her recipe consists of a sweet bun filled with jerk chicken, sweet red and green peppers “for crunch and freshness”, roasted corn “for sweetness and smokiness”, and Rocto’s own homemade mayo and barbecue sauce. “So I put it all in the bun, I bake it, and it’s amazing – it’s spicy, it’s sweet, it’s crunchy, it’s soft. It’s amazing. I know it’s my recipe, but it’s sooo good.”

Tracey Rigden For Rigden, competing on Recipe to Riches was a “nerve-wracking” and scary affair – which is precisely why the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs law clerk thinks it’s so fitting her episode is set to air on the spookiest day of the year. “There’s a reason why we’re on on Halloween, let’s just put it that way – it’s a scary episode,” she said laughing. “It’s fun to watch, though, and I’m sure people will absolutely laugh themselves silly.” The oldest of four siblings, Rigden said she learned early on to pitch in

with the family meals – picking up her cooking skills from dad, while honing her baking prowess under the watchful eye of mom. It was those latter skills she chose to showcase in presenting her dulce de leche (“candy of milk” in Portugese) brownies for the judges of Recipe to Riches to sample – a recipe she’s been perfecting for years. Born of a basic brownie recipe she looked up on the eve of a potluck a few years ago, Rigden’s sweet creation has since morphed into sweet perfection with the addition of a few key ingredients. “I’m a big Food Network junkie – I love it – and I’d just been watching a show about how to make dulce de leche, so I thought what the heck? I’ll give it a shot,” she said, noting that the result of her experimentation elevated her dish to the hit of that first potluck, as well as many others since. Regardless of whether that recipe wins her $250,000, Rigden said she already feels like a winner: “No matter what, I’m guaranteed a bronze medal, so it doesn’t matter if I win the prize. Just getting here was pretty darned impressive, I think.” n Recipe to Riches premieres on Oct. 17 on the Food Network.

City will get the transit it pays for

T

oronto councillor Josh Matlow is right when he says it’s “vital” that the city has an honest conversation about how to fund transit expansion for the TTC. Matlow, the councillor for St. Paul’s, made the comments in response to the release of a report by Toronto’s city manager Joe Pennachetti providing a list of transit funding options for local councillors to consider. The options provided by Pennachetti, including road tolls, parking fees and increased property taxes, are not new. We agree an honest conversation must be held on Toronto’s transit funding. Where we differ with Matlow is on who should be having that conversation. our view It’s certainly not our politicians. At the city level, the battles Taxpayers will between councillors have made transit planning unproductive foot bill for at best. Meanwhile, Toronto’s executive committee will disfuture transit cuss Pennachetti’s report at this month’s meeting. Though Councillor Matlow may wish it so, we have our doubts that will achieve anything. Higher levels of government are facing huge financial challenges and are limited in what they will commit to Toronto for transit. The provincially run Metrolinx, which is charged with finding funding for transit across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), does not even have to present its plan on where the money’s coming from to the provincial government until next June. All discussion will come to the same place. The private sector is not riding in on a white horse to save the day. Taxpayers are going to have to foot the bill. We need to clearly tell our elected representatives what it is we want when it comes to public transportation not just in Toronto but surrounding areas, and we have to let them know what we are prepared to pay for it. Along with the road tolls, parking fees, vehicle registration tax proposals, Pennachetti also offered ideas including a personal income tax hike of one per cent, a property tax hike, a payroll tax, a fuel tax, a parking levy, a Land Transfer Tax hike, and a development charge fee. The more time we spend trying to not raise taxes, the more difficult it will be to plan and pay for an infrastructure that is imperative to the future wellbeing of the city. We have often written about the imbalance between business tax and property tax in this city, and the light property tax load of Toronto compared to surrounding municipalities. Toronto residents may have to face the reality of what you pay for – or don’t – you get. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

No end to transit funding talk

O

h, goody. The October meeting of Mayor Rob Ford’s executive committee will have a familiar treat: a jolly long talk about how the city might fund major transit expansion projects in the future. From Mel Lastman to David Miller to Rob Ford, the dream of big transit projects has fueled both rhetoric and design like no other project except maybe property tax increases. In that sense, the conversation starting this month and going into next spring will be a little stilted, and might not go anywhere. That’s because the report from City Manager Joe Pennachetti frames the question at the nexus of those ideas: namely, how to finance big transit expansion, whatever that may be, using among other things, big whopping property tax increases. The report is something Toronto Council asked for, mostly in response to Mayor Ford’s moving target plan to build a Sheppard subway into Scarborough using private sector money and a growing amount of federal

THE CITY

and provincial grants. In shutting down the subway dream, council in its wisdom decided to look at ways of financing transit absent either the private sector or nominal help from higher orders of government. It is a sensible thing to do: an “adult” conversation that determines what exactly Torontonians are willing to pay for in the way of public transit, which is to say, how much Torontonians are willing to pay. The report looks at hiking the land transfer tax by a percentage point, reinstating a $100 vehicle registration tax, imposing road tolls on highways, and a one per cent property tax hike. In the same agenda, the city manager is setting up a plan to devise a transit plan itself based upon a review of the city’s Official Plan. Once again, it is a sober

and sensible approach to transit planning — two elements lacking in both Mayor Ford’s subway dream, and the bus-tokenin-every-pocket approach that TTC Chair Karen Stintz came up with in the spring with the frenetically gerrymandering One City transit expansion plan. Seems dull and sensible and prosaic, yes? Well, there is still an element of pipe dream to it all. Because even as Toronto Council is considering these plans, so too is Metrolinx, the provincial government’s go-to agency when it comes to financing new transit. Metrolinx also is looking at ways to finance its own transit expansion plans – plans which encompass the entire Golden Horseshoe. The question becomes: if roads do get tolled in Toronto, just whose projects will that money go toward? And so it goes: the conversation on transit will go on, with no end in sight. n David Nickle is The Guardian’s city hall reporter. His column appears every Thursday.

To the editor: Re: ‘Transit users speak out against bad behaviour,’ Special Report, Sept. 27. I read the article by Rahul Gupta; I could not believe the comments made by TTC chief customer service officer Chris Upfold. “Rudeness is not something that catches my attention as being high.” Another statement by Upfold was that riders should alter their travel patterns and the times they travel in order to reduce potential disputes. The message sent by Upfold was rudeness and disrespect for others wins. Values, respect, manners and etiquette are instilled into us at an early age with maturity bringing that forward to our later years. Once again the TTC has exposed itself to show us how deep their problems lie. The TTC’s biggest hurdle is the TTC. Ray Blais

On our @TOinTransit Twitter account we received a number of responses to our coverage on rude riders on the TTC. Below is a sampling of some of the Tweets we received. To get in on the conversation visit us @ TOinTransit @commutersunited: It’s time to start a subway etiquette rule! @micahbarnes: why have we Toronto people become so deeply selfish and rude while in public spaces like the TTC? @MonicaAraujo33: Reading the paper I came across “transit riders complain about the rude ride on the TTC courtesy of other passengers” couldn’t agree more. @RachieB13 Dear annoying rude loud girl on the phone while on the bus. Shut up!! #TTC is not the place for your nails on a chalkboard laugh. #annoying @elizabethmunro: It ’s astounding how rude people are to TTC workers.

Metroland Central expands its reach Division now extends from Toronto to North Bay Metroland Media Group’s Metroland Central division now stretches all the way to North Bay, under the direction of Toronto Community News publisher and Metroland vice president Ian Proudfoot. T h e d i v i s i o n , p re v i ously comprised of Toronto Community News and York Region Media Group, now reaches a readership of more than 900,000 homes on a weekly basis, stretching from the heart of the city in Toronto to North Bay in Ontario’s Near North, now incorporating Simcoe/Muskoka division

properties. The expansion offers exciting new opportunities and relationships for readers, clients, community partners and the more than 800 talented employees in Metroland Central, Proudfoot said. Acknowledged as a passionate advocate of the newspaper industry, both print and online, Proudfoot now is publisher of more than 50 print and online products. “Removing borders has created exceptional opportunities for our clients to extend their reach,” Proudfoot said. In announcing the expanded division, effective Oct. 1, Metroland president Ian Oliver paid tribute to retiring vice-president and Simcoe/Muskoka regional publisher Joe Anderson. “Joe’s creativity, drive and strategic focus have made him a significant contributor to Metroland.”

Proudfoot led the creation of the Metroland Central division in May, adding Toronto Community News to his York Region Media Group, upon the retirement of TCN publisher Betty Carr. Metroland’s Toronto, York Region, Simcoe, Muskoka, Parry Sound and North Bay media properties have a tradition of creating strong community partnerships and supporting non-profit organizations, through volunteering, donations and services. Proudfoot’s longtime commitment and outstanding contribution to community was recognized when he received a 2011 Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship. He is quick to acknowledge the contributions and talents of his employees, adding, “I’m honoured to work with people who have true passion for their communities and what they do on a daily basis.”

All regularly priced items to be discounted – which include toasters, glasses, irons, hair dryers, coffee makers, frying pans, kettles,

microwaves, knife sets, flatware and cleaners, among many others – will start with the product code 42-, 43-, or 53-. The Basketeer concept, Stoneburgh explained, is a simple one: “to support women in new beginnings.” volunteer To achieve those ends, Basketeer participants – whether they be individuals or groups – start with a laundry basket or other storage container, and then fill it full of items a woman starting a new life might need. Some participants choose a theme, buying all-kitchen or all-bedroom/ bathroom items, Stoneburgh explained,

Gobble up your turkey leftovers There are plenty of ways to turn turkey leftovers into delicious meals to be enjoyed by the family for several days after the holiday. To enjoy turkey leftovers, first the remaining turkey should be prepared and stored so it can be safely eaten later on. This means that turkey should be deboned and packed up for storage no later

than two hours after the bird has been served. Generally, leftover turkey can be enjoyed 3 to 4 days if refrigerated. If the meat is frozen, it can last much longer. Here are some ideas to whet the appetite. Turkey Chili: Combine the meat with kidney beans, red and green peppers, onions, pureed tomato and a pack-

age of chili seasonings from the supermarket. Let simmer and serve with corn bread or over rice. Turkey kabobs: Thread turkey on skewers with apples, pears or pineapples. Bake until meat is reheated and fruit is soft. Turkey gyro: Top pitas with turkey meat, lettuce, onion, and fresh tzatziki sauce.

Tzatziki is made by mixing chopped cucumber, garlic and lemon juice with a thick Greek yogurt. Turkey omelets: Chop up turkey and add it to the egg mixture when making omelets. Serve with toast spread with cranberry sauce.

Turkey pot pie: Line a pie tin with homemade or storebought pie crust. Add the turkey, half a can of cream of chicken soup, a package of thawed mixed vegetables, and the remaining pie crust. Bake until the pot pie is bubbly and hot.

Open faced turkey sandwich: Spread leftover crandberry sauce over a slice of bread. Smother it with stuffing before topping it with think slices of turkey breast. Heat gravy in a pot and pour generously over the sandwich. -MS

Nearly 140 firefighters battled a three-alarm blaze early Saturday morning at a south Etobicoke fish processing plant. Toronto firefighters saw thick clouds of smoke rising from North Fish Company Ltd. when they arrived on scene at the 23 Six Point Rd. factory after the 7:20 a.m. call. Fire crews entered the building through its main office, but soon found the building extremely compartmentalized and smoky, said Toronto fire Capt. David Eckerman. Extreme heat and smoke from the fire forced firefighters to withdraw from the building. “During their interior searches, it became too dangerous. They had to withdraw from an interior attack to a defensive attack,” Eckerman said. Twenty pieces of fire apparatus were on the scene. Some 48 fire trucks and 139

firefighters rotated in and out of the scene until firefighters knocked down the blaze around noon Sept. 29. Toronto fire requested Toronto Hydro rush to the scene to cut power to overhead lines that endangered a parked pumper truck below. CP trains in the area were stopped. Toronto police evacuated a few employees of a neighouring businesses, Sgt. Bart Evans of 22 Division reported.

Parts of the building collapsed. The building’s southeast corner and the entire west side completely collapsed. The north side of the building partially collapsed, Eckerman said. No injuries were reported. Damage is estimated at $5 million. “The building appears as though it’s a complete loss,” Eckerman said. The Ontario Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.

Is your car trying to tell you something? While talking cars only appear in the movies, your vehicle can still communicate using its own language. Many motorists are familiar with noises their vehicles make on a daily basis. However, any noise that is new, different or suspicious may indicate a problem. For example:  A high-pitched squeal that stops when pressing on the brake pedal is a sign that a vehicle’s brakes should be inspected. The same goes for grinding that could be the result of worn brake pads that should be replaced.  Thumping that increases and decreas-

es with the speed of the vehicle could mean a trip to your local service center. The diagnosis may be a tire problem like a bubble in the sidewall or torn rubber that could lead to a blowout.  Sounds under the hood can also indicate that your vehicle is in need of attention. A disconnected or cracked vacuum hose may cause hissing. A squealing noise while revving the engine could be a slipping drive belt. Inspection and repair will allow your vehicle to operate more safely and efficiently. – Metroland Media

FIRST LOOK: FORD FUSION SE AWD 2013

n 411 ON THE FUSION: In this completely redesigned model, built on an all-new global chassis, Ford has not only knocked it out of the park in terms of styling, but they’ve created a well-priced, wellcrafted sedan that should challenge the best in its class. It will be available with a wide range of four-cylinder engines that include a normally-aspirated 2.5-litre (175 hp, 175 lb/ft of torque), a 1.6litre turbocharged EcoBoost (178 hp, 184 lb/ft), 2.0-litre EcoBoost (240 hp/270 lb/ft) and a hybrid that pairs a 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle inline four with an electric motor and weightsaving lithium batteries. There’s even the Fusion Energi – a plug-in hybrid – that will be available early next year. The 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre EcoBoost models, despite the Fusion’s heft (between 1,512 and 1,670 kg), are lively performers. Despite its smaller displacement and lesser numbers, this engine is still peppy. With the advantage of a clutch, you can spool it up quickly, and although it’s no rocket off the line, you’ll have no trouble passing at speed. Inside, there’s an abundance of soft-touch materials, with nicelyfinished edges and upholstery that wouldn’t look out of place in a premium automobile. Panel gaps are extremely tight. Even the base model (MSRP

The “One Ford� philosophy is unifying the design process and has been bringing award-winning global products to our shores. The 2013 Fusion follows on the heels of world cars like the 2011 Fiesta and 2012 Focus.

The Fusion’s narrow, wraparound taillamps blend seamlessly into the car’s wide shoulders. From all angles, this looks like a big car. Even the mid-trim SE FWD model rolls on a nice set of 17-inch, painted aluminum wheels.

With its wide stance and sleek profile, the 2013 Ford Fusion has an athletic stance. It’s sweeping character lines, thin roof pillars, slit projector headlamps and wide grille with horizontal chrome strakes, creates a sophisticated look that wouldn’t be out of place in the premium segment.

The 2013 Fusion’s wide grille with horizontal strakes, flanked by slit projector headlamps, gives the front end an upscale, but sporting appearance. The 2013 Fusion’s front seats are quite comfortable, and in optional leather with high bolsters and accent stitching, wouldn’t look out of place in a European sports sedan.

$22,499) is well outfitted with a decent list of features like air conditioning, power windows, keyless entry, tilt/telescopic steering, and a four-speaker AM/FM/CD/ MP3 audio system with steering wheel controls and SYNC voiceactivated connectivity. And there’s a ton of available driver technologies, such as the second-generation MyFord Touch with SYNC infotainment system, navigation, rearview camera, blindspot monitoring (with cross traffic alert), lane departure warning with lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, rear parking sensors, active park assist and the fuel-saving stop/ start feature. The latter, which comes in at a reasonable $150, is only available with the 1.6-litre engine with autobox. It shuts off the engine when stopped, and seamlessly restarts when you release the brake. Ford claims it will cut fuel consumption and emissions by about 3.5 percent. Fusion’s new, sleeker profile, sweeping character lines, thin roof pillars, slit projector headlamps and wide grille with horizontal chrome strakes, suggest poise and athleticism. It’s a look that is more premium than its predecessor and one of the most handsome in its segment. In the 2013 Fusion, Ford has raised the bar yet again.. – Metroland Media

Three men sentenced in torture of Etobicoke man Three men were sentenced this week to a combined 27 years in prison for the 2010 kidnapping and torture of an Etobicoke courier. The victim, Nana Afrane Okesse – a Ghana native who lived in the Martin Grove Road and Eglinton Avenue area at the time of his kidnapping – said he is still traumatized by his April 13, 2010 abduction for ransom and torture with a hot iron. “Since my abduction I have been having trust issues,” he said in a statement filed with Ontario Superior Court. “Sometimes when strangers approach me I get frightened.” In the court ruling released Mo n d a y, Ju s t i c e Br i a n Trafford detailed how, on that Tuesday night in April 2010, Prince Ashley Lewers, Dane Dillon and Teri Broomfield abducted Okesse in the Jane Street and Wilson Avenue area at around 7:30 p.m. and drove him to a home on Montcalm Drive in Hamilton. Okesse was kept in the basement of the home, with his hands bound in duct tape, and regularly beaten and burned with a hot clothes iron for the length of his 22-hour

ordeal. “The victim in this case was held captive for a considerable length of time and tortured,” 23 Division Supt. Ron Taverner said at the time. “This is a very serious crime we’re talking about here.” The kidnapping operation – which was allegedly masterminded by Bodum Adesioye Bo, a car exporter who police believe evaded arrest by fleeing to Nigeria – was motivated by a dispute about a payment, the court found. Bo allegedly asked Ok e s s e t o d e l i ve r $5,000 to a shipper in return for a bill of lading, but when the shipper withheld the bill, Bo accused Okesse of not delivering the money. In a bid for compensation, Bo ordered his associates to kidnap Okesse for ransom. While threatening him and his family, Bo and accomplice Olawale Opeyemi phoned his friends demanding sums ranging from $22,000 to $30,000 for

Police alert public to rash of distraction thefts North Etobicoke police have issued a public alert in the wake of a number of distraction thefts in 23 Division. According to the alert, four suspects have been reported in connection with the thefts, in which the accused approach their victims and attempt to start up conversations with them about a family member passing away and about how their deceased love one wanted to give away their jewelry. Police report during the course of the conversation, the suspects would remove the victims’ own gold necklace or bracelet, return to their vehicle, and drive away with it. The descriptions of two male and two female suspects wanted in connection with the thefts have

been released by police. The male suspects are described as follows: the first is white, aged 25 to 30, with black hair, a clean-shaven face, and a stud earring in the left ear; the second is tanned in complexion, and aged 25 to 30. The female suspects are described as follows: the first is white, aged 25 to 30, 5’4”, with a round face; the second is tanned in complexion, aged 35 to 40, with one gold upper tooth. The vehicle the suspects have been driving is described as a white coloured SUV or van. Anyone with information is asked to contact 23 Division at 416-8082308 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222TIPS.

his release. Instead, those friends called police. Twice the kidnappers made arrangements to pick up the money, failing each time – during the second cash pickup attempt in west Toronto, police arrested

Opeyemi. Seeing his plans foiled, Bo ordered Okesse’s release, and he was freed near Avenue Road and Wilson Avenue on April 14. Lewers, 27, of Hamilton, was sentenced to 10 years,

less 30 months for pre-trial custody; Broomfield, 26, of Hamilton, was sentenced to nine years, less 36 months p re - t r i a l c u s t o d y ; a n d Opeyemi, 40, of Brampton, was sentenced to eight years, less one year’s credit, for their

respective parts in the kidnapping. Dillon, the fourth kidnapper, was murdered in 2011. Jeffrey Glover, of Toronto, was acquitted at trial. - With files from Torstar News Service

Investigators urged citizens with information to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.222tips.com Gilao sees it as an issue of trust, and a question of how to build it. “Our community sees the police not as friendly. They see them as the enemy because of how it was back home,” he said. Somali families often move to public housing unaware of some areas’ history of gun violence and drug dealing, he said. “They flee war. They come here. How can they survive in this society? They just see housing as a shelter. They don’t know for a long, long time some of the areas are known for gangs, are drug dealing central. “It’s a contradiction. Canada is a very progressive society with beautiful social programs, like the building of public housing. But then there are no other programs after

that. They’re alone.” Abdifatah Warsame, 33, is the founder of Centre for Youth Development and Mentoring Services in Rexdale. He sees youth success stories every day. He agrees with Gilao that the “elder” generation of Somali-Canadians who fled the country’s civil war in the early 1990s no nothing of the presence and perils of drug dealing and gang influence that grips some neighbourhoods across Toronto. “We’re under siege. We’re in crisis,” Warsame said. “To bring change, it has to be collective change. Bring everyone on board. It’s our problem, as Torontonians, as Canadians. It’s not a Somali problem. “Young people are getting killed. People think, ‘they must be selling drugs or gang banging.’ Unless you live in their shoes, you have no right to judge. You’re only adding fire to the problem, not solve it. It’s our Canadian way of life that is at stake. Somalis are extremely, extremely grateful to Canada. Coming to Canada, it was a paradise.” Warsame believes part of the solution lies in increased

police resources and use of camera surveillance. Leaders like Gilao and Warsame haven’t lost hope. “Dejinta Beesha has been in the Dixon area since 2001 with settlement services and community services for new immigrants. You see young kids that used to come to our homework club finishing university, getting a job. Some are quite successful. They never left the neighourhood.” When murders occur, it is far more likely, Gilao said, that some in the community take the issue into their own hands, rather than contact police. That, too, must change. It only will with built trust and community outreach and partnerships, Gilao said. “People will build a behaviour. If someone’s son is murdered and they know the guy, they’re not going to share with the police. They’re going to kill him,” Gilao said. “People in mainstream society, if something happens, they talk to police. But the mainstream community has lawyers, money, resources that our community does not have.”

HOME IMPROVEMENT Canadian homeowners seeking efficient alternatives to forced air A recent national survey reveals Canadian homeowners don't just want a warm home this winter − they want an energyefficient one. According to an online study of 1,003 Canadian homeowners, an overwhelming 88 per cent of Canadians surveyed report something about their heating system bothers them in the winter, including high heating bills, uneven and inconsistent distribution of heat, cold floors and

dry air. The survey reveals 84 per cent of Canadian homeowners would like to make changes to the heating system in their house, with over half reporting they would like to eliminate hot and cold spots, have more consistent temperature and more even distribution of heat throughout their home. In addition, 44 per cent of respondents said if they could only change one thing about their

system that is the least expensive and easiest to install – and forced air is probably at the top of your list. However, experts advise homeowners do some research when it comes to home heating. Thanks to versatile installation options that let homeowners scale the installation according to their budget and needs, today you can enjoy many of the benefits of radiant heat, the gold standard heating system, without installing it throughout your entire home.

Radiant home heating uses water's own natural heat retention ability to efficiently spread warmth using less energy. Unlike a forced air system, radiant heat reaches every corner in your home and takes the chill out of kitchens, bathrooms and lower-level floors – creating the perfect environment in every room. With radiant heat you can set your thermostat lower and feel perfectly comfortable. Radiant heat is also an ideal

choice for rooms that are not used regularly as its zone controls enable the heat to be lowered in low traffic areas of the home for maximum energy efficiency. Homeowners who want to add a few luxury finishes to their home, such as a snow melting system for the driveway or roof, or a heated garage will discover radiant heat is easy to install and they will enjoy its luxurious benefits all winter long.
