Mark Feb. 15 on your calendar – it’s Flag Day FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com While listening to the radio several years ago, Marga van den Hogen noted the announcer talked about Valentine’s Day and Family Day, but failed to make mention of a day falling in between that she holds near and dear: National Flag of Canada Day. “I thought, what’s the matter with Flag Day?” the Thornhill resident recalled. “I’m only one person but I wanted to do something about it.” So in 2009, van den Hogen formed Flag Flyers, a group dedicated to raising awareness about Canada’s flag through visits to schools and seniors homes. And for someone who feels as passionately as she does about her country’s flag, she can regularly be seen handing out pins and flags to people she meets on the street, always eager to spread the word about the maple leaf surrounded by red and white. “The flag is so unique and distinctive and very Canadian,” she said. “If I’m out of the country and I see the flag, I feel at home. Fly your

flag, be a proud Canadian.” Flag Day is marked annually Feb. 15, ever since the flag first flew over Parliament Hill in Ottawa on that day in 1965. Van den Hogen, who was born in Holland, said the

Canadian flag is more than just something fluttering in the wind. “It gives us peace and unity,” she said. In honour of Flag Day, van den Hogen, along with Boy

Scouts, will be handing out pins, flags and Flag Day info Sunday, Feb. 10 to parishioners at Blessed Trinity Church, 3220 Bayview Ave., north of Finch Avenue. She also stopped in to hear

the Oriana Women’s Choir rehearse at North Toronto Collegiate Institute Tuesday, Feb. 5 for their show March 2 at Grace Church on-theHill, 300 Lonsdale Rd., titled Canada Sings - A Celebration of Our Heritage. Former North York resident Leo Marchildon spent 20 years working in the United States and noticed Americans seem to take considerably more pride in their flag than Canadians. “In America, their flag flies proudly at every street corner,” said the Flag Flyers member. “You don’t see that as often here as you do there.” The film composer, who splits his time between the States and Prince Edward Island, where he is music director for St. Dunstan’s Basilica in Charlottetown and the diocese of the entire province, said Canadians tend to be aware of Canada Day but not Flag Day. “It falls at an awkward placement in the year and is perpetually glazed over,” Marchildon said. “We’re not pushing for a statutory holiday, we just want people to take a moment and recognize the flag and be proud Canadians.”

Canada flag facts: • When the Canadian flag flies along with the flags of the 10 provinces and three territories, the flags of the provinces and territories follow in the order that they entered Confederation. • The maple leaf has been used as an emblem in Canada since the eighteenth century. It has often served to distinguish Canadians abroad, as was the case with Canada’s first Olympians in 1904. • Red and white were proclaimed Canada’s official colours in the proclamation of the Royal Arms of Canada in 1921 by King George V. • Dr. George Stanley, a professor at Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario in 1964, suggested a red and white single maple leaf design for the flag because it could be seen clearly from a distance. • The Canadian flag is twice as long as it is wide. The white square and its maple leaf make up half the surface of the flag, equal to the two red bars combined. – Canadian Heritage

Eglinton LRT stops: One saved, one scrapped in North York Review keeps Ferrand on line, but stop at Leslie scrapped FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com

T

he Leslie Street stop for the EglintonScarborough Crosstown has been scrapped and the Ferrand Drive stop saved. Residents at a Dec. 11 public meeting were told of plans by Metrolinx to remove the two stops from the line’s list of 27 proposed stations, but after reviewing feedback, the provincial agency decided to keep Ferrand. But due to low ridership expectations and high construction costs, Metrolinx said plans to nix Leslie will remain.

“We believe Ferrand can work,” said Metrolinx spokesperson Jamie Robinson during a meeting Thursday, Jan. 31 at the Ontario Science Centre to bring residents up to speed on the latest developments. “Leslie would cost over $100 million and have very low ridership. There will be no development ever to the south and northwest corner of Leslie and Eglinton because of parkland. We currently have condos and folks north on Leslie, but Leslie would still have the lowest ridership on the highest cost station on the line. We don’t believe the cost is justified.” Ferrand, however, is in a priority neighbourhood with high density and that, combined with the Aga Khan Museum currently under construction, makes it a viable stop to keep, he said.

A light-rail line stop at Ferrand Avenue remains in the plans for the Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown LRT, while a stop at Leslie Street (in black) has been scrapped.

Street will be every 10 minutes during peak hours, Robinson said, adding buses will turn right onto Eglinton Avenue before stopping at the Laird Drive station. Metrolinx also reiterated from its Dec. 11 meeting to alter the eastern tunnel alignment of the 19-kilometre LRT line, which was originally intended to travel below Eglinton Avenue

past Yonge Street and emerge onto street level at Brentcliffe Road in Leaside. But because of a potential conflict with a condominium under development at Brentcliffe, Metrolinx wants to tunnel further east beyond Don Mills Road where it would emerge at street level and travel in a dedicated right-of-way all the way to Kennedy station in

Scarborough. Along with tunneling to Don Mills, the provincial transit agency would like to move the tunnel’s eastern launch shaft through which tunnel borer machines would excavate west to Yonge Street - from Brentcliffe to the more spacious north parking lot of the Science Centre, located at 770 Don Mills Rd. Bayview Avenue would be another site option to launch the tunnel boring machine, but that location would have significant noise impacts and is located on school lands, Robinson said. Laurie Forbes, one of about 100 residents who came out to Thursday’s meeting, agreed the Leslie Street price tag wasn’t justified. “It is a concern,” she said. “The city is undergoing a lot of fiscal issues and why put money into the stop when

you can walk or take the bus to a stop close by?” Forbes, who recently moved to the Leslie Street and Eglinton Avenue area from Ottawa, said she runs in Wilket Creek Park every morning and knows the site is busy come summer, but is hardly used in colder months. “I think people will benefit enormously from the line being on Eglinton, but perhaps the money (for Leslie Street) can be put to better use,” she said. The proposals out forth by Metrolinx require an addendum to the 2010 environmental assessment approval for the line and must be endorsed by the agency’s board of directors before being sent to the minister of the environment for final approval, estimated to be spring 2014 at the earliest. - with files from Rahul Gupta

Maximizing the impact of public consultations

A

s the city-wide tour of transit consultations makes its way through various parts of Toronto this week and next, it’s important to reinforce the potential value these community gatherings have. When we take advantage of these opportunities, we build better communities. The Feeling Congested? series is designed to garner public feedback on transporour view tation priorities and funding options. The series kicked off in Speak up now York on Monday. Additionally, according to chief planner on transit to Jennifer Keesmaat, more than 1,500 people have already shared shape future their opinions online. It is admittedly challenging to share feedback for projects that are years, even decades away from being realized. But as we seek to connect our communities, this stage is an important one. It has impact. For evidence, look no further to what happened last week on another transit-related issue: the construction of the Eglinton Avenue light-rail line. Metrolinx confirmed at a public meeting last Thursday that after reviewing feedback, a station at Ferrand Drive in North York would remain in the plans. Initially, there were plans to scrap the station. Ferrand Drive is in Flemingdon Park, one of the city’s priority neighbourhoods whose dense population would benefit from a transit stop. The construction of the Aga Khan Museum nearby was also a factor in keeping the station, said a Metrolinx spokesperson. These are the things that happen when people speak up – here, it helped shape and ultimately improve a critical piece of transportation infrastructure. Not bad. Hopefully the Feeling Congested? series can yield those kinds of ideas that shape our transit future. At the York Civic Centre Monday, the first session, from 4 to 6 p.m., drew a sparse turnout. But it’s apparent one common concern that’s surfacing is how the potential funding tools – percentage of a property tax, parking levies, fuel taxes, highway tolls, among others – would be applied and to whom and for how long. These are critical questions. These are conversations we must have. And it’s good they’re happening now. These are conversations that don’t need to be restricted to election time. So, we must understand that the contributions we make to our communities today can have far-reaching impacts. It’s how communities grow, evolve and prosper. newsroom

To the editor: It’s time they stopped telling us that Premier-elect Kathleen Wynne is the first openly gay leader in Ontario. Is this going to influence her ability to lead the Liberal Party? Isn’t it time to focus on what other qualifications she has to be a capable leader, instead of merely promoting her sexual orientation? Has any other politician come out and said they were openly heterosexual? Is sexual orientation now a prerequisite for getting elected? Really, who cares? If she is a capable leader, let her get on with leading. If not, then let’s have an election and find out who is ready to give good, honest leadership, regardless of their sexual preference. Mary P. Nicol

Farewell, humble penny, we’ll miss you, big guy

T

hey say the only thing constant is change. Well, “they,” whoever “they” are, knew what they were talking about because Monday, change actually changed, which is no small feat, courtesy of the Royal Canadian Mint’s decision to eliminate our penny. Adapting to change is always a tad uncomfortable at first, so, for those wary about whether they will be able to adjust to a life without the beloved copper coin, fear not, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions. Q. I understand that for cash transactions, any price (after tax) that doesn’t end in five or zero has to be rounded up or down. So, the government is recommending that totals ending in the digits 1,2,6,7 should be rounded down to the nearest nickel, while ones ending in 3,4,8,9 are to be rounded up to the nearest nickel. Some companies

but seriously

jamie wayne

have announced they plan to round down for all cash purchases and round up for all cash purchased items returned. What’s your take on their generosity? A. All I can say is race you to their nearest outlet. Last one there’s a rotten egg. And if you’re returning a rotten egg bought with cash, enjoy the windfall. Don’t spend it all in one place. Q. When I buy one recyclable five-cent plastic bag and nothing else at the store across the street, the cashier charges me six cents after the HST. Now we’re being told that those six cents will be rounded down to the nearest nickel. Well, the nearest nickel, last

I checked, was a nickel. So you mean they’re actually only gonna charge me a nickel then? A. Tell me about it. Q. Will a Canadian store still be allowed to use number 99 in its product advertising now? A. Why not? According to marketing research, 99 is still the most well-known Canadian athlete. Nobody cares that he lives in L.A. Please, stick to the topic. Q. I just read a poll that said 88 per cent of Canadian consumers didn’t know that the penny was being phased out this week and 41 per cent weren’t aware of how their regular stores would be handling this transition. Given the government’s clearly defined guidelines on this matter, shouldn’t those results have been upgraded to 90 per cent for the former and downgraded to 40 per cent for the latter. A. Hardy har har. You fifth-graders really think

you’re the cat’s pajamas, don’t you? Q. I just met a girl named Penny on an online dating site who said she was looking for a serious relationship only. She told me she was 30-something. Coincidentally, she officially took herself out of circulation the very same day the penny was phased out of circulation. I’m guessing I have to round off her age. So, which way do you think I should go, up or down? A. I’d say, given the usual credibility of information found on the Internet, you should round up. Definitely up. Oh, to anywhere from 40-something to 50-something, or so. Give or take a something, that is. n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much.

Long-serving York West Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti could be facing prosecution over allegations he overspent his 2010 councillor campaign budget by 44 per cent. On Monday, Toronto’s three-member Compliance Audit Committee voted unanimously to hand those allegations to a prosecutor, who will decide whether to bring Mammoliti to court. If convicted of violating the Municipal Elections Act, Mammoliti could face fines, removal from office or even prison. Mammoliti’s campaign was found to have spent more than $12,000 over his campaign spending limit of $27,464 in his bid to retake his seat in Ward 7 (York West). Mammoliti’s campaign finance was complicated by the fact that he had initially registered to run as mayor and had begun a campaign. In the summer of 2010,

when it became clear he would not be able to prevail, Mammoliti dropped out of the mayor’s race and began a council race. The lead auditor Bruce Armstrong said the changeover was one factor that may have led to the campaign’s numerous accounting problems, and unanswered questions. In addition, he said the campaign suffered for the lack of having a fulltime internal chief financial officer, instead relying on the campaign’s auditor for advice. “I suspect the auditor was presented with a shoe box full of receipts and a tight time limit as he pulled together the financial statements,” said Armstrong. Mammoliti’s lawyer Jack Seigal tried to convince the committee to put the hearing off, in order that Mammoliti’s campaign could have more time to fulsomely respond to the findings in the report. “The situation my client Mr. Mammoliti finds himself in is difficult if not impos-

sible,” he said. The three-person committee rejected the request for an adjournment, and finally voted unanimously to proceed with prosecution. The usually loquacious Mammoliti wouldn’t speak with reporters. David DePoe, the retired teacher who brought forward the complaint, maintained his motivation in doing so was only because he had received a tip that Mammoliti was overspending, and he disliked politicians who didn’t abide by the rules. DePoe admitted, however, he sought help from a group of activists calling themselves Fair Elections Toronto who have launched campaign finance audit requests against several r ight-of-centre municipal politicians. His lawyer, Paul-Erik Veel, has been working pro-bono on this case and also on an audit request on behalf of former library board member Adam Chalef-Freudenthaler of former city councillor Peter Li Preti.

Rehab hospital first recipient of donation >>>from page 1 “It (Holland Bloorview) is pretty spectacular. What they provide for the kids is, to me, pretty amazing. To give kids the opportunity to achieve their dreams and remove any limitations that there might be is pretty special and an opportunity I want to give the kids.” Raonic, who last weekend was part of a Canadian contingent that beat Spain to advance to the quarterfinals of the Davis Cup for the first time, gave the centre a cheque for

$40,000. The first gift from the Milos Raonic Foundation, the donation will create the Milos Raonic Kids Agility Clinic to help kids and youth who have

amputations and other disabilities lead healthy and active lives. It may even inspire some future Paralympians to get their start at Holland Bloorview.

In addition, the foundation will match donations up to $30,000 to develop a pediatric version of a lowcost prosthetic knee known as the LC Knee, created by Holland Bloorview

scientist Dr. Jan Andrysek. Expected to cost less than $100, compared to other prosthetic knees that come with a price tag of $1,000 to $30,000, the LC Knee gives users a high level of mobility. Clinical evaluations are expected to wrap up this summer and the hospital hopes to talk to companies in the fall about bringing the prosthetic to market, Andrysek told The Mirror. William Goessaert, a 21-year-old champion para-alpine skier, is the first person in Canada to wear a prototype of the LC Knee. “It’s awesome, it’s a really good feeling (to be the first),” said Goessaert, who lives in the area of the Dufferin Street and St. Clair Avenue. Goessaert, who was born missing his left leg from above the knee, is impressed he can swim with the prosthetic and doesn’t have to worry about getting sand in it. Not only will the LC Knee help youngsters in Canada, it will be an inexpensive device for children with missing legs in developing countries, he said. “It’s going to change a lot of lives,” he said. Raonic got involved with Holland Bloorview after meeting Claire Johnson, a five-and-a-half-year-old – “the half is very important” to Claire, her mom, Susan Marshall, joked – patient at Holland Bloorview. Claire was born with an underdeveloped left hand. When Marshall explained to the medical team at Holland Bloorview that her daughter was having trouble serving a tennis ball, the hospital made a prosthetic device for her. “We went to Milos’s parents last summer” to tell them what the hospital could do for Claire as a budding tennis player and they wanted to see the facility, said Marshall, adding Raonic played a fun game of tennis with Claire last year. When Raonic’s foundation was established last November, Holland Bloorview was first on the list for a donation.

The owner of the gas station where a worker was killed in a “gas and dash” incident in September was cleared in two Ministry of Labour investigations. The ministry was investigating the Shell gas station at Marlee and Roselawn avenues where Jayesh Prajapati, 44, worked under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, which is standard when an employee suffers serious injury or death in the workplace. The ministry

also looked into whether the Ontario Employment Standards Act had been followed, as allegations workers had to pay for stolen fuel surfaced. Prajapati was hit and dragged Sept. 15 by a driver who allegedly fled after filling up $112.85 in gas and not paying. The gas station owner, Maz Alibhai, had disputed the allegations, saying he covers the cost of stolen fuel. Five gas stations owned by Alibhai were visited by employment stan-

dards officers and only minor problems were found, such as improper vacation pay record keeping, said ministry spokesperson Matt Blajer. Investigators ordered the employer to have a worker health and safety representative and written health and safety policy, written workplace violence and harassment prevention policies, and one location was ordered to post a copy of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, he said. All orders were completed by Jan.

23, Blajer said. The ministry launched a blitz targeting 275 gas stations across the province to ensure they are complying with employment standards, he said. To date, 248 stations have been inspected and 696 orders filed, with four for unlawful wage deductions. The blitz was sparked by Prajapati’s death and a similar incident in Mississauga in May 2011, when gas attendant Hashem Atifeh Rad, 62, died while trying to stop a driver who

had not paid for fuel, Blajer said. Eglinton-Lawrence MPP Mike Colle, who represents the area where Prajapati was killed, introduced a private member’s bill in September called “Jayesh’s Law” calling for mandatory gas pre-payment and suspension of drivers licences for those convicted of gas theft. Police are still searching for the suspect in Prajapati’s death, Max Edwin Tutiven, 39, who is wanted for second-degree murder.

700 Lawrence Avenue West at Allen Road 416-256-0256 Monday-Friday: 10am-9pm • Saturday: 10am-6pm • Sunday: 12pm-5pm

An elderly woman with Alzheimer’s disease who wandered away from a North York seniors’ apartment building last Thursday night was found dead outside her former Scarborough home early Friday morning. Kathleen Pollock, 87, was discovered missing from the Donway Place retirement living building near Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue during a routine security check at 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Toronto police Staff-Sgt. Brian Gottschalk told The Mirror. The building is a condominium where the residents are free to come and go as they please, not a facility that restricts the entrance and exit of seniors, he stressed. When security couldn’t locate Pollock, they notified her family, who alerted police, Gottschalk said.. Pollack was found collapsed outside her former estate southwest of Kingston

and Markham roads at about 4:30 a.m., he said. “We don’t know how she got to Pine Ridge,” Gottschalk said. “She could have taken a cab, she could have taken a bus, she could have walked. Seniors often surprise us...It’s not that unbelievable to us (that she might have walked so far).” While the -10 C temperature outside overnight may have contributed to Pollock’s death, Gottschalk said she suffered from hypertension, heart disease and the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. She had been taking medication for Alzheimer’s, but her doctor took her off it due to side effects, he said. “Her delicate condition combined with the cold could have contributed to her death,” said Gottschalk, adding the pathologist has not revealed the cause of death. Pollock was wearing a coat, boots, gloves and a hat, he said.

No charges will be laid because Pollock was not living at a facility responsible for preventing residents from exiting, Gottschalk said. “It’s just a very sad story,” he said. Donway Place executive director Lynn Jennings said staff members are upset by Pollock’s death. “We are truly saddened by the death of Kathleen Pollock and we do extend our sympathies to the family,” she said, adding she could not provide any further details due to privacy concerns. The family estate near the Gates Gully ravine on the Scarborough Bluffs was built by the Pollock family in 1939 and is known locally as Lakeview. After the family sold the four-acre property in 2011, Scarborough councillors rejected a call to seek heritage designation in order to keep new owners from demolishing the house. – with files from Mike Adler

t’s been a big winter for the left-wing anti-Rob-Ford illuminati. They nearly toppled our virtuous, football-loving mayor for the crime of loving football too much. Fresh from that near-totalvictory, the skulking fiends saw fruits of their other investigations – in the form of a compliance audit of Ford’s 2010 election campaign. This is serious business: the same pack of villains saw another sometime-Ford-ally, York West Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti, could be facing prosecution for his own alleged electoral sins in 2010. If you listen to the mayor and his allies, the scoundrels are engaged in an unfounded, partisan and political attack on democratically elected politicians, the like of which has never been seen. And if you believe that, you haven’t spent much time watching Toronto politics. Because while it’s true this latest round of legal challenges brought forward has come from citizens who, it’s fair to say, don’t agree with the direction in which Ford is taking the city – using the

THE CITY

courts to win fights you can’t win at the ballot box is not an exclusively left-wing tactic. In the 2006-2010 term, it was councillors on the left who were in the spotlight. Former councillors Sandra Bussin and Adrian Heaps both incurred stiff legal fees to deal with issues while in office. When the two councillors – along with Mammoliti, then an ally of former mayor David Miller – had their expenses reimbursed, future deputy mayor Doug Holyday took the city to court, and won. Holyday’s move was a matter of principle, to be sure – he didn’t think taxpayers should be reimbursing legal fees for members of council – but it’s hard not to see it as political as well. After all, those three were allies of left-of-centre Miller: Holyday was then firmly

entrenched in the right-wing opposition. All of this is – or should be – beside the point. The reality is that everything that goes on having to do with politicians is political. Everyone who comes to city hall does so with an agenda, whether improving their neighbourhood, improving the lot of the disadvantaged, or finding the gravy that’s costing taxpaying Torontonians an arm and a leg. Sometimes, their agenda is more visceral: putting politicians with whom they disagree on these points out of office. The legal system might be a weapon of choice for those players from time to time. But whatever the motive anyone has for engaging it, once engaged the system has a way of sorting things out. And if politicians are found to be in breach, they really only has one enemy to blame – themselves. n David Nickle is The Mirror’s City Hall reporter. His column appears every Thursday.

Toronto Council debates voting privileges for permanent residents MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Toronto councillors have revived the debate on giving non-citizens the vote in local elections, saying permanent residents who pay for city services deserve a say in city politics. “We are a city of immigrants, and it’s not enough just to have it as a motto. We have to start acting that way,” said Davenport Councillor Ana Bailão, who, at a meeting last week of the community development and recreation committee, called for a report on the issue. “Currently there is taxation without representation in this city,” said Josh Matlow of St. Paul’s, adding tongue in cheek he’s heard from a “persecuted” group in his midtown ward he said is interested in the municipal vote, Americans who are living in Toronto. At the urging of York Centre Councillor Maria Augimeri, the committee directed staff to investigate whether it is possible to have permanent residents take part in Toronto’s 2014 election. Bailão said she didn’t think that could happen, and Beaches-East York Councillor Janet Davis noted

a campaign to extend the franchise to non-citizens failed during the last term of council. “It worries me that we might lose a straight-up vote on this” at the current Toronto Council, Davis told the committee, but said it was important to raise the issue again. All mayoral candidates should be asked for their views on it during the 2014 campaign, she added. It’s thought at least 200,000 adult newcomers in Toronto could get the vote. In 2009, Myer Siemiatycki, a Ryerson University professor, estimated 15.4 per cent of the city’s 2006 population fell into this category and warned neighbourhoods where 30 per cent or more adults are recent immigrants suffer from a resulting “lack of political voice.” The report is expected at the committee’s May meeting.

GO to introduce quiet zones on some trains starting Monday RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com It’s about to get a whole lot quieter on GO trains. Beginning Feb. 11, the transit service is designating the upper coach of most trains running on the Barrie line as special Quiet Zones, for passengers seeking solitude from noisy commutes.

In the specially marked areas, passengers will be asked to refrain from engaging in noisy conversations as well as to mute electronics like cellphones, tablets and laptops. While GO Transit employees will not enforce the silence standards, riders are encouraged to politely ask someone making noise to tone it down

or head to another part of the train. The new zones will be in place on every trip on the line leaving or heading to Union Station, save the 7:22 a.m. southbound trip and a northbound trip leaving Union at 5:35 p.m. For more information about the new quiet zones, visit www.gotransit.com
