Mississauga Matters: All Candidates Debate As you know, the provincial election is just around the corner. June 7th to be exact! As the sixth largest Canadian city, it’s important that Mississauga has a committed provincial partner who understands our resident’s key priorities and will provide the consistent, predictable and longterm funding we need to become a world-class city. That’s why our City launched Mississauga Matters, a campaign to raise awareness and jumpstart the conversations residents need to be having with candidates about the future of our City and our three key priorities; transit, infrastructure and affordable housing for middle-income earners.
The City of Mississauga will be hosting an all-candidates’ debate at City Hall to find out where candidates stand on our priorities. If you are interested in learning more or securing a seat at the debate, please visit mississaugamatters.org. Remember, if a candidate knocks on your door, strike up a conversation and ask them how they will ensure that Mississauga Matters at Queen’s Park. You can also make your voice heard by joining the conversation online using #MississaugaMatters.

The guest list was extensive with an impressive wine and cheese selection and delicious hors-dâ€™oeuvres served by the warm and wonderful staff.

he “RULE OF THIRDS” divides an image into thirds with horizontal and vertical lines. Where the lines intersect, the pink squares (1), are visually powerful locations for an important element of the photograph. In photo 2, the light of the lighthouse and the burst of fireworks each occupy one of the intersects. In photo 3, the son’s and father’s faces are at the points along the right vertical third. For single subjects, whether it is a blue jay (4) or a model (5), the eye is the most compelling feature to locate on the intersect. 14
WINE, WOMEN AND TRAVEL On April 4th, Tuxedo Travel held a women-only event with My Secret Kitchen providing delicious hors d'oeuvres. Martha, from Gateways International, gave a lively presentation of a special trip to Italy, as well as other popular destinations.
Q: In your book, My Days: Happy and Otherwise, it fascinated me how much strength, courage and determination you had. You don’t hear many people have the amount of focus that you had when you were a child, where do you think that came from, your Mom? Absolutely, the fact that I had a crippled brother, I had to be something special. In my mind, to be an actress is of course not the wisest choice in the world, but it was my secret. I would go to the library and read who was who in the famous world and it would say they were born and now they are a star. I would think “what happened in between? How old were they?”
Q: Let’s talk about the power of intentions? In your book you said, “I will become a great actress, I will be in the theatre, I will have all the people clamoring to me, I should be talent.” It’s obvious that you achieved that.
MARION ROSS BY SUE LONDON
I had the honour of interviewing legendary actress Marion Ross, also known to millions as Mrs C from the hit TV show, Happy Days. Marion is a lady of honesty, integrity and inspiration. Her newly released book, My Days: Happy and Otherwise, is truly life changing. I encourage you to pick up a copy today.
Q: In your memoirs, you talk about what it was like to be a starry-eyed young girl with dreams, while living in poor rural Minnesota. Can you tell our readers about the struggles you’ve faced and what it took for you to make your dreams come true? You have to understand that I was the second little girl in the family. My brother, who was 18 months younger than me was a crippled boy. So, that made me have to achieve. I had to really try to make up for everything. Also, I was very strong and healthy. I think because my mother was a Canadian immigrant, she made sure we knew we could be whatever we wanted to be. I was told I could do it, so I thought “I will Mama! I will!” 16
This was just written in my diary when I was in about the 6th grade. By the time I got to be 14, I would go to the library and read theatre art magazines and told my mother that I had found a school in Minneapolis, McPhail School of Music & Drama, so I asked her if I could go up in the summer and take care of somebody’s children and take some lessons. My mother said, “of course you can.” So that’s how I started, I stayed with that family for my whole junior school year.
Q: In your earlier years, you were married to a man who was an alcoholic, what advice would you give to others who are faced with this situation? First of all, you have to figure out why you married him? I kept thinking to myself, why would I pick him? That’s an interesting thing, so I started seeing a shrink after asking myself that question, because what was that all about? What was it that attracted me to him? It was pretty complicated.
Q: What I love about you is that you are a very grounded person and you are so genuine. As I was reading throughout the whole book, you stayed that way, you didn’t let fame get to you, which really impressed me. I am quite a realist. I see reality all the time. Being in Hollywood, I was very watchful and would think “oh, not that, don’t do that.” I could see the lurking danger. Thank God I was married right from the get-go, because I got married when I was 21, so I had the protection of being married, even though it was a lot of work, I stayed married for almost 20 years.
Q: You raised a TV family & you raised two real life children. What was your hardest challenge of raising kids and being a mom yourself? At one point, it was earning a living because nobody had a job. I used to go on interviews and the interview people would say, “tell me about yourself.” I would start to cry. I would say “I’m getting a divorce!” and they’d say, “oh God, get her a cup of coffee.” I rented a room out in my house, in fact, one time I was so poor I was just trying to keep the house going. I found a piece of linoleum tile that was breaking in the kitchen. So I put it in the oven, heated it up, put some glue on the back of it and I repaired the kitchen floor. It was so wonderful.
Q: Were your kids very accepting and supportive of when your soul mate cAme into your life?
Happy Days Cast
Q: Tell me a little bit about your children. My daughter was a writer/producer on Friends and now, she is creating a new pilot. She is a writer/producer for ABC. My son is an actor and he is in a commercial that you’ve probably seen, I think it’s for Geico, George Washington being pulled across the freeway. My granddaughter is a beginner in acting, but she’s got all the looks and the lovely personality. We’ll have to see how much drive she has, because you have to be the engine and it has to come from you.
Q: How much fun was it on the show? I know when Happy Days started, working with Tom Bosley in the beginning was a little tough. Actually, we were like children at play. Jerry Paris, the director, was the biggest child of all. We were more grown up than Jerry. On top of that, Garry Marshall, created the softball team, so a lot of us were interested in softball. We went to Germany and played softball with the US Infantry, along the Russian boarder. Then when the show was totally over, after 11 seasons, the very next morning, we all got on a plane and flew to Okinawa and played softball with the US Marines. I have my own bat with my name on it, my own glove and my own uniform.
Q: Garry often asked you to calm down different cast members. What kind of advice would you give them? They would come to ask me for advice. Poor little Erin, I tried to advise her, but her parents hadn’t given her a good basis or a good background. So, you couldn’t be the parent that they were missing. She was missing that. When we had parties, her parents stayed forever and had a wonderful time. Ron’s father come to the party and then took Ron home right away.
Yes, absolutely because I was 60 years old, so they were all grown up and they liked him. Paul was a Christian Lebanese, born in this country, but his parents were from Lebanon. He was a fantastic cook. Everybody wanted to come here for his cooking! Paul was such a treat because he had been on Broadway and he was a great singer, handsome and strong.
Q: When you meet that Mr. Right, you just know, don’t you? Well, it took about 6 years. It wasn’t until he had an operation and needed to be looked after when I said, “move in here with me.” We were together, but he hadn’t moved in. He was a very independent man and he didn’t want to become Mr. Me.
Q: What is your greatest joy or satisfaction? Well I think there’s a lot of comfort in the fact that I haven’t screwed anything up, that I haven’t made a mess of all of this. I’m very glad of that. I’m pretty pleased of everything. Now I’m 89, which is amazing! I have told my agent, I am retired as far as I don’t want to work anymore because one of the last shows I did, I kept saying “what’s that line?”
Q: What final words of inspiration would you like to leave with our readers? That you can follow your dreams and give it a go because you can do it. Keep looking for that inner strength in you. COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA
Dear The Wine Ladies,
My husband and I will be off later this month to South Carolina for a mini celebration of a friend’s graduation. As a lover of sweet wines, icewine seemed like a good choice. But then I learned there are also sparkling icewines. What are they like? Would this be an appropriate wine to bring? Are they served chilled, like a regular white wine? Are they served in white wine glasses? I’d like to tell them a little about what icewine is and how it’s made. If it’s not too complicated, can you share a few thoughts on that as well? - Diana
THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Diana,
A sparkling icewine would be perfect for the occasion. Not only does it satisfy with respect to being a sweet wine, but also the added fanfare surrounding their opening, with the celebratory note of the bubbles will surely be a hit! We started producing icewines here in Ontario in 1984 and became recognized as a leading icewine producer on the global stage in 1991 when Inniskillin won the coveted Grand Prix d’Honneur at Bordeaix’s Vinexpo wine fair.
Icewine is made from grapes that have been left to freeze naturally on the vine. The season begins with netting the grape vines in the fall to protect the grapes from the birds. In order to produce icewine there 18
are strict regulations that the wineries must adhere to. The grapes for example must not be picked until a minimum temperature of -8°C or lower is reached for a sustainable time period. The harvest usually takes place sometime between December and February, typically a stressful time for the winemaker awaiting the perfect condition to get into the vineyards and start picking. Between the time of the end of the growing season and the harvest, the magic takes shape. The grapes dehydrate, concentrating the juices and creating the complex characteristics that lend them the ability to produce the luscious, sweet yet beautiful balanced nectar of the Gods, icewine. Sparkling Vidal ice wines, the most common grape used for making icewines will offer up a delightful blend of tropical fruit flavours, oftentimes of apricot and peach, and with a touch of citrus. Although a superb dessert wine, sparkling icewines also marry well with a variety of appetizers. The delectable flavour is enhanced with a wonderful balance of sweetness and acidity, perfectly delivered to the palate with the effervescence of the lively bubbles. Serve in fluted glasses and well chilled as you would a sparkling wine or a champagne.

SCHOOL LIFE CLARKSON
SECONDARY SCHOOL April is always a special month at Clarkson Secondary School, as students participate in a weeklong fundraiser for Camp Oochigeas. What is most notable is the atmosphere of love and support throughout the school. Clarkson students have come up with imaginative activities, in order to encourage peers to part with their money for a good cause. We look forward to sharing the full story with readers in next month’s issue, but the photos included offer a small hint of what “Cancer Drive” (as it is referred to by students) means to Clarkson.
STREETSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL
While everyone is still waiting desperately for spring weather to chase out the gloom of winter, at Streetsville Secondary School, everyone’s spirits remain high. With a whirlwind of fun events, the continuation of the winter weather has done nothing to dull the radiant enthusiasm of the students.
At the beginning of March, Streetsville Secondary School hosted the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations’ Girls AA Volleyball Championship. Various teams went head to head, each of them fighting to achieve one common goal: to claim victory and land the honour of first place. For the first time in nearly seventeen years, Streetsville’s team placed in the top twelve. This is a great achievement, and pride runs thick through the halls of Streetsville Secondary School. The girls AA Volleyball Championship was electrifying, and the “Cops 4 Cancer” hockey game that took place on March 29th was just as incredible. The annual Cops for Cancer hockey game was, again, a huge success where Streetsville SS raise over $1000 to be donated for cancer research. Members of the Peel Regional Police battled it out against Streetsville Secondary School’s hockey team at Vic Johnson Arena. At first, the Streetsville Tigers had the upper hand, but the police quickly caught up. The sound of hockey sticks crashing together rang out through the arena, as well as the cheers of the students as the players flew across the ice in the endless dance of battle. It felt like an eternity as the crowd waited anxiously for the tie to be broken, and finally it was. With two minutes left, the Tigers pulled out their goalie, and the police made a clean shot that soared across the length of the rink, coming to a stop only once it had arrived at its intended destination – the Tigers’ net. In the end, the Peel Regional Police won, eight to five. It was an intense match and the Streetsville Secondary School community is happy to have taken part in such an important charity event. Earlier this year, Streetsville Secondary School hosted the Coffee house, an event to showcase the incredible talent of the students. All anticipated the second and final Coffee House of the year which is held on April 26th. The last Coffee House was absolutely stunning, and there is no doubt that this one will be just as fantastic. For additional info, the school can be contacted at 905-826-1195. Do not hesitate to visit the website at www.streetsvillesecondary.com or follow them on Twitter @StreetsvilleSS. BY AMBER FOLEY
Sports events have taken centre stage lately, filling the students with a mixture of emotion, ranging from excitement to nervousness.

WITH SPIRALIZED ZUCCHINI, ASPARAGUS & TOMATO EN PAPILLOT
aking fish in parchment allows for the flavours to really concentrate. The steam helps to make a perfect sauce and the cleanup is minimal! I often make this when I need an easy dinner for 2 or 4. Serves: 2
Ingredients • 3/4 pound of skinless rainbow trout or salmon, one piece • 2 zucchinis, spiralized or 2 cups prespiralized zucchini • 1/2 of a fresh long red chilli, sliced in rounds • 6 campari tomatoes, each sliced into 3-4 rounds • 1/2 bunch of asparagus, ends removed and stalks cut in half. • 1 tsp sea salt, divided • Freshly ground black pepper to taste • 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil • 1 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
Directions S TEP 0 1 On the work surface, lay the sheet of parchment paper lengthwise. The piece of parchment should be about 4 times the length of the fish. S TEP 0 2 Using the lower half of the parchment paper, lay down the spiralized zucchini (this will be the “bed” for the fish). Tuck about half the tomatoes slices and half the red chili rounds in the zucchini noodles. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of the oil, about 1 tsp of the balsamic, sprinkle with salt and pepper. S TEP 0 3 Lay the fish fillet on top of the spiralized zucchini and tomato bed. S TEP 0 4 Drizzle a small amount of the oil on the fish and season with salt and pepper. S TEP 0 5 Distribute the remainder of tomatoes, red chili rounds and all the asparagus spears on top of the fish.
STEP 06 Drizzle the contents of the package with the remainder of the oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. STEP 07 Fold the upper half of the parchment paper over the vegetable/fish mound (you should leave enough space around the food to allow the air to expand and circulate). Starting from one corner, make a fold in the parchment, staple that fold together. Make very tight, closely overlapping little folds starting from one corner and work your way around, towards the opposite corner. Fold the last fold over itself and staple this fold to itself and then a few of the folds along the parchment paper. Place the package on a cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. STEP 08 Cut the package open and either slide the contents onto a plate or serve directly from the open parchment (you can cut away the top flap and staples). DeliciousDish Serving Suggestion: I like to serve this over a bed of brown rice, quinoa, or millet.

For example: Millennials have different requirements than Baby Boomers, and Seniors are considering how their lives may change in the years to come and how that will affect their lifestyles.
SOME CONSIDERATIONS MIGHT BE: • Redefining what is important to you. • Right-sizing may be the path to creating a lifestyle that uniquely fits what your hearts desire. • Sometimes even more important than square footage of a house is the layout and location.
• Baby Boomers are seeing children leaving the family home and are wondering if it makes sense to continue living in a large property. • Perhaps you are looking at redeeming some equity from your family home to enable you to embark on a new venture. • Many Baby Boomers want to travel more and not have to worry about the upkeep of an empty large family home. • You may be recently retired and looking at planning the next steps in your life what does that look like to you? • Perhaps you are worried about aging parents. How long can they continue to live in their current homes safely and happily? There are many, many different options to consider and I will assist you every step of the way with my extensive knowledge. In addition, I have excellent preferred services, such as: de-cluttering, staging, renovating, moving, legal, whatever you need to make the transition to your right sized home go smoothly.
When considering what is the Right-Size home for you in the next stage of your life,
