LAKEVIEW WATERFRONT CONNECTION –
TRANSFORMING OUR WATERFRONT 01
Mississauga’s waterfront is about to be transformed. On Saturday, September 24, more than one hundred local residents gathered at Lakefront Promenade Marina as the Region of Peel, Credit Valley Conservation and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority celebrated the start of construction of new waterfront conservation area. The Lakeview Waterfront Connection project will transform a degraded and inaccessible section of the shore into a beautiful, naturalized conservation area. The space is slated to become a hotspot for wildlife migration and a green oasis in the heart of the city. The new conservation area will add green space where it is sorely lacking. The event brought residents from Mississauga and Etobicoke together to celebrate the waterfront transformation. The celebration started with a traditional water blessing ceremony performed by Valarie King of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. “This is a wonderful day for the environment, our community, the city and the Region of Peel,” said Jim Tovey, Peel Regional Councillor representing Mississauga’s Ward 1. “This project represents the community’s commitment to restoring our natural environment and creating a sustainable future for generations to come.” Coun. Tovey has led the Lakeview Waterfront Connection project since its inception. The project is scheduled to take seven to ten years to complete. It will result in a publicly accessible conservation area roughly 48 football fields in size with 1.5 kilometres of new shoreline, stretching from the old Lakeview generating station to the Toronto border at Marie Curtis Park. The Waterfront Trail will be rerouted along the newly created shoreline, instead of its current inland path near Lakeshore Boulevard.
“This area historically contained two thriving wetlands and very productive fish spawning habitat just off shore. That’s all been lost to centuries of development,” said Nando Iannicca, Credit Valley Conservation Chair and Councillor for Mississauga Ward 7. “Today is when we start to turn back the clock and bring life back to this degraded stretch of shoreline. Today is the start of something big and Credit Valley Conservation is proud to be part of it.”

The new conservation area will be created using only clean fill from construction projects to build a new, healthier waterfront, revitalizing a degraded section of shoreline. Currently, this area has some of the lowest numbers and species of fish along the entire Mississauga lakefront. There is little food, shelter or connected corridors to support the life requirements of plants and animals. The western Lake Ontario shoreline is a key stopover area for migrating birds, bats and insects. “A naturalization project of this scale will transform our urban environment and contribute to a healthier Great Lakes ecosystem.” said Andrew Farr, Director of Water for the Region of Peel. “We’re learning more about the connection between environmental health and human health each day. Access to natural spaces leads to a better quality of life for families and youth, and that’s exactly what the Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project will do.” The project received environmental assessment approval on May 27 2015, after a comprehensive community consultation process. The Lakeview Waterfront Connection is supported by the cities of Mississauga and Toronto and is in keeping with the sustainable principles of the Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan. More information on the Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project is available at www.lakeviewwaterfrontconnection.ca.
FALL HOME Maintenance TIPS Article by: STEPHANIE HEBB
hen we’re down south I’m always amazed at the number of older model cars on the road and looking in great shape. But I guess it should be no surprise. Without the winter and heavily salted roadways, the cars there age more slowly than they do in Canada. Winter in Canada means wear and tear on our houses too. Here are some steps you should take this Fall to winterize your home and prolong the life of your largest asset. • Before it gets too cold, CHECK YOUR ROOF for areas that need repair and fix them. Nothing worse than springing a leak in winter and the weather not cooperating with the repair. • TRIM DEAD BRANCHES off trees, especially those near or over your house so they don’t come down in a storm and damage the roof/gutter. • After the leaves are down, CLEAR GUTTERS of debris to prevent ice damming and damage. • SCREEN ANY HOLES that a small critter could use to get into the house (dryer and furnace vents). When it starts to get cold outside, mice will look for ways to get into a warm house. • Before it starts to get dark really early, check outside lighting and REPLACE DEAD BULBS.
• CLOSE THE POOL. Cover to prevent fallen leaves from building up and drain the system before the ground freezes. • COVER UP the BBQ, the A/C unit and the patio furniture to protect them from the elements. • Drain the underground sprinkler system and SHUT OFF WATER to outside taps. • WRAP BURLAP around tender shrubs and saplings. • INSPECT THE CHIMNEY. Have it swept regularly if using your wood-burning fireplace. • SEAL AIR LEAKS around windows and doors with weather stripping. • INSULATE, INSULATE, INSULATE. Top up attic insulation if you can see the joists. Remove screens and hang storm windows. Insulate exposed pipes to minimize heat loss. • CHECK THE FURNACE to make sure its works before you need it! When everyone turns on their furnace on the first cold day, the furnace repairmen won’t be able to keep up with the number of calls they get. • REVERSE CEILING FANS so that they blow the warm air back down into the house. • Last, but definitely not least, MOVE THE SNOWBLOWER & SHOVELS to the front of the garage. You will definitely be sorry if you wait until the first big snowfall to do this. It will be cold and wet outside and you’ll be hauling stuff around trying to get to the snowblower.
How will I get you top dollar for your home? I’ll put my experience to work for you. • Expert negotiation skills • Extensive background in sales and marketing • Trusted by clients for over 20 years • Deep knowledge of the neighbourhood

Written by: Clarkson S.S. Student, Jade Donnestad
an you remember the first day of high school? For many, there was that feeling of fear and uncertainty. A new school, especially a larger one, can be intimidating and even terrifying to some. In an effort to make new grade nine students feel welcomed and at ease, Principal Mary Zammit, staff and current students dedicated a day to give the future graduating class of 2020 a warm Charger welcome. Grade nine students were welcomed on their first day with school-spirited swag bags and shirts. Enthusiastic senior students led grade nines into their organized teams where they made a team sign, and then signed their names on a white banner. In 2020 they will see this banner again at their graduation. No one will have to fumble with a locker or wander the halls aimlessly looking for the gym or cafeteria. Seniors led the grade nines to their lockers, showed them how to open them and led them through the school. Mentors shared exciting Clarkson stories, gave advice and answered questions. They played fun, interactive games and showed grade nines that their future school is a comfortable, supportive environment. Clarkson Secondary is a school that works above and beyond to create a strong and happy school community. That first day Clarkson Chargers showed true school spirit and proved how much of a supportive and fantastic school it is.
4 OF MISSISSAUGA’S FINEST INDUCTED INTO THE
WALK OF FAME Jeff Healey’s love for music was celebrated in Port Credit Sunday as he was inducted into the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame. “For Jeff, it was always about the music. It was really important that people appreciated the music,” said his widow Cristie Healey, who accepted a plaque on his behalf.
Healey died of sarcoma cancer in 2008. Following the unveiling of his star in Memorial Park, Jeff Healey Band’s founding bass player, Joe Rockman, described working with him. “The best way to answer it quickly is it was never boring because he really had a musical genius to him,” Rockman said. “He had an encyclopedic knowledge of jazz, which translated to other forms of music as well.” This year’s inductees also include Steve DeMarchi, Bobby Dean Blackburn, and Cliff Hunt. “I never really expected this to happen. This to me, as our song would say, means more than words can say,” said DeMarchi, referring to his former band Alias and their huge ’90s hit. For R&B trailblazer Bobby Dean Blackburn, his career began with his band, Bobby Dean and the Gems, at age 16. “It was the first rock and roll band in Toronto to incorporate saxophones,” said Blackburn. “We did a lot of stuff in Mississauga, Streetsville, with The Gems. We started on Lakeshore, Port Credit, Mimico, New Toronto, all the dances in the early days.”

Hunt attended the ceremony with his family and business partner of more than 20 years, Sander Shalinsky. They managed Canadian alternative rock band The Killjoys during the grunge era. “I was always in a musical family. My father was a musician, my mother was a singer,” Hunt said. Just as Hunt mentions his mom, on hand for the ceremony, will be turning 96 in November, former Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion, also 95, enters the room, joining her for a photo. The women are received with applause and cheer. “They are the real rock stars,” said Shalinsky. The Music Walk of Fame was founded in 2012 by Ward 1 Coun. Jim Tovey, who has been singing from the moment he “was born,” and continues to write songs and “jam out” in the studio.

He says he was inspired to find a way to recognize influential members of the music industry. “I just admire all of them,” said Tovey. “They have really brought a lot of pride to the City of Mississauga.”

Dear The Wine Ladies, Last week I had a wine that reminded me of pears so much in the taste and smell, that I wondered if pears were used to make it, or at least added to the wine.
Is this possible? If not, how is it that so many wines are described as having tastes and smells of such a variety of fruits and other foods? I’ve heard of blackberries, plums and even blueberries, not to mention one that really threw me - green peppers! Are there any wines that smell like grapes? - Erica
THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Erica,
We are pretty sure there are many people out there who are wondering the exact same thing. There is actually a logical explanation for how someone might recognize a variety of familiar smells, such as pears, when it comes to the aroma of a wine. All foods and drinks are made up of a complex combination of molecules, some being more aromatic than others. Scientists have been able to identify some of these molecules and have discovered that if present in a certain food and wine, a similar smell can be detected. Take pears for example - According to “Editions Jean Lenoir” creator of 3, it’s been demonstrated that hexyl acetate, one of the typical compounds found in pears, is responsible for the scent of a pear found in wine. Green peppers, sometimes detected in the aroma of Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc, also shares a similar compound called methoxy-2-isobutyl-3pyrazine. The most recent discovery was the peppery character that is often detected in wines such as Shiraz from Australia
or Syrah from Rhone. Australian researchers detected a trace of a peppery molecule in Shiraz wines and discovered the same molecule in ground white pepper. This peppery character in Shiraz grapes can be identified as a chemical called rotundone. This is all fascinating information, which explains why winemakers consider winemaking a blend of both science and art.

WE SCAR E H U N GER Clarkson Secondary School believes strongly in giving back to its community. Our WE Charity (Free the Children) club is running its fourth annual food drive “We Scare Hunger” campaign in support of the Mississauga Food Bank. Students, staff, parents and community members can get involved in multiple ways. First, there’s a homeroom competition within the school. Secondly, club members can canvass their own community and in lieu of receiving treats for Halloween they’ll be gathering donations for the food bank. Lastly, for those who prefer donating fresh food, Clarkson S.S. and the Mississauga Food bank have created a link where donations can be made online to the food bank for the purchase of fresh food items. misfb.convio.net/site/TR/Events/General?team_id=1421&pg=team&fr_id=1070)

GORDON GRAYDON MEMORIAL
SECONDARY SCHOOL Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School has had an amazing start to the school year. As we enter our second month of school, it is evident our Grade 9’s are making the school their second home. They are adjusting to their classes, joining teams/clubs and have made new friends. Our Grade 9 Olympic Day, held last month, was a great start to forging a positive school start. The last month of September saw a number of students and staff visit 17 Peel elementary/middle schools, providing information on our incredible Regional Programs (International Business and Technology/ Graphic and Design Management). More than 1 400 students had the opportunity to ask questions about our programming, meet students/ staff and get excited about being a part of our IBT/GDM programs. Staff, at the schools visited, have information (on our programs) in their office and/or student services area (for those who may have missed the presentation). Our Grade 9 & 10 students, in IBT and GDM, participated in a leadership/ team building exercises at The Muskoka Woods Leadership Centre. The three-day excursion was one the students, who participated, will not soon forget. They came back to the school extremely excited about implementing leadership ideals team building activities throughout
The month will conclude with students and staff celebrating Halloween Monday, Oct 31st. In previous years, students came to school dressed as their favourite mystical/cartoon character, musician and famous television/movie personalities. We are looking forward to having a spook-tacular day! If there is ever a need to gather information about Graydon, or its programs, feel free to call the school or visit our website. We can also be followed on Twitter @GraydonHawks. Parents/guardians, of students attending Graydon, are always welcome to attend our School Council meetings. Our first one was held Thursday, Sept 22nd. Minutes, of the meeting, are located on the school’s web-site (under “School Council). Our next meeting will be held Thursday, Nov 24th, at 7:15 pm, in the school’s Learning Commons (library).
