‘In Flanders fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row...’ ~ by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, May 1915 McCrae, a Canadian soldier, gave a voice to those who sacrificed their lives in the First World War, and his poem continues to be part of Nov. 11th Remembrance Day ceremonies

Unison names Michelle Joseph its new CEO Unison Health and Community Services will kick off 2013 with a new leader.

hile bagpipes played, the Grade 8 students from St. Gabriel Catholic School formed two lines and slowly made their way to the Wall of Remembrance, pausing to put their red paper poppies in fake grass. Some 50 students took part in the Remembrance Day event at the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) building near Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue Tuesday. With written words of hope and peace, the poppies were “planted” in front of the Wall of Remembrance, which was covered with messages on paper poppies from TCDSB staff in the atrium. Names of Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan were also written on paper poppies that hung from the third floor. A large display focusing on the Second World War, specifically the Canadian raid on Dieppe, France in 1942, was put together by Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School history

teacher Tim Stewart and will remain in the atrium all week. The display includes original artifacts such as medals, uniforms of Canadian soldiers, maps, photos and first-hand written accounts from more than 90 veterans of the raid. Stewart, a historian and curator for The Toronto Scottish Regiment who spent 15 years in the Army Reserves as a soldier and piper, said he grew up listening to war stories told by his late veteran father, Arnold. “My first exposure to Dieppe was during a high school presentation,” he said. Over the next 30 years, Stewart has spoken with hundreds of veterans from the raid and collected artifacts from their families who, sadly, held little value to them, he said. “My father was a World War Two vet and his brother was killed in Italy,” he said. “My father gave me my uncle’s medals when I was young.” Cpl.

Council proclamation Toronto City Council proclaimed Nov. 5 to 11 as Remembrance Week. Here is an excerpt: ‘Remembrance Week is an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have fought for our country, remained at home protecting our national security, assisted Canadians in times of disaster and crisis, served on peacekeeping missions overseas, and those who continue to do so even as we enjoy a peaceful week of remembrance, safe in our homes.

sions from 1957 to 1967, gave students a brief overview of wars and his role as a peace keeper. “The best part was stopping violence and saving lives,” he said. “There was a lot of fighting but we were tasked with trying to stop the fighting. At road blocks they would point weapons

at us, that’s the most violence we saw.” St. Gabriel student Ever Imafidon, who was tasked with reading In Flanders Fields, said she shared her thoughts on how different her life would be had her parents stayed in Nigeria when she wrote her message on her planted poppy. “Those who did fight for

us have courage,” she said. Mary Walker, supervisor of communications for the TCDSB, said this is the first time the board has held a week-long Remembrance Day observance, noting the many staff members whose lives have been touched by war and the fact Nov. 11 falls on a weekend this year.

During Remembrance Week, we proudly wear the poppy over our hearts as a symbol of the poppies that grow at the final resting place of too many of our First World War soldiers. We also pay our respects by attending local memorial ceremonies or by simply talking with our veterans about their many experiences and thanking them for their service.’ – City of Toronto

Tie transit to casino plan D

iscussions swirling around a potential Toronto casino have focused mostly on location, social ills and potential revenue-sharing in the multi-millions of dollars. All valid talking points; however, the business of transit when it comes to a casino in the city – downtown or elsewhere – is a discussion that must be had. And now is the time to do it. Think outside the proour view verbial box and consider all options, and how to stimulate Casino proposals economic growth. raise concerns In March, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming about congestion Corporation (OLG) announced two opportunities for casinos in Toronto – one in OLG’s C1 zone, which encompasses downtown Toronto, and another in a C2 zone, which encompasses parts of north Etobicoke. Most of the talk has been on the downtown option, including locating a casino at Exhibition Place or revamping the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Congestion would be a major issue at either of these locations, making life for anyone travelling in and out of the city core, most notably residents in both areas, even harder than it is today. Talk of a downtown relief line or expediting light rail construction becomes essential if the downtown core – and all ways in – are further congested with potentially hundreds of buses and thousands of cars. The other option in north Etobicoke could be at Woodbine Racetrack, expanding Woodbine’s operations into a full-service casino on its 680-acre site at Hwy. 27 and Rexdale Blvd., as expressed by Jane Holmes, vice-president of corporate affairs at Woodbine Entertainment Group, during a recent meeting of Etobicoke-York Community Council. But a location in north Etobicoke, where public transit is limited, raises congestion concerns as well as other transit issues – in particular, how to extend public transit to service those wanting to visit the casino, and the Rexdale community as a whole. It’s only through a strong transit plan that an Etobicoke location could hope to provide a revenue stream that could come close to a downtown site. This discussion shows how important to economic development – beyond commuter needs – a comprehensive transit plan is to Toronto. With GO Transit’s Georgetown South and Union Pearson Rail Link expansion, the idea that transit can flow to a proposed casino becomes far more possible. A multi-pronged approach to transit – considering economic benefits as well as expanding the viability of areas of the city now segregated – should be part of the city’s transit vision.

To the editor: My daughter Jackie lives in Hamilton County, Ohio, and campaigned diligently for President Barack Obama. My daughter was born and raised in Toronto. She began taking an interest in politics under my influence, since much was wrong in the United States and I wanted her to care about her future and my grandsons’ future in that country. I ensured my grandsons were entered in the Canadian embassy, that they have dual citizenship and that they are aware of their Canadian heritage. It was indeed gratifying to see Obama win, knowing my daughter had a small part in his achieving that win. As the email that was sent to my daughter from the Obama office said, “You made it happen.” Yes, you did Jackie, and I am so proud of you. Kathleen Matthews

Council’s decision on ombudsman contract reasonable

A

gain? The frustrations of our mayor once again spilled over, after steady needling by the city ombudsman accusing him first of meddling in the civics appointment process and advising she needed more staff during the preliminary budget review. Her colleague, the integrity commissioner, has pointed out the mayor’s staff was assigned to support the mayor’s private interest in a school football team, plus expenses for their cellphones and city automobiles. Most recently, she criticized disparaging personal remarks by the mayor and his brother about the medical officer of health. The discussion on the adequacy of the apology underlined the brothers’ visceral belief the actions are politically motivated. Then there’s the city’s lobbyist registrar, who

Beyond the headlines

david soknacki

questioned recent lobbyist activities. So the mayor thought he had an opportunity to strike back. Using the opportunity to consider a contract extension for the ombudsman, the mayor and some of his allies thought it advisable to schedule the end of her term at the same time as her colleagues. If the three contracts ended at the same time, reasoned the mayor, then they could all be replaced at once, perhaps with a single consultant. But his plan was not even in his own interest. The first rule of politics is to remain consistent.

In the mayor’s case, he must be the conductor to stop the gravy train. He cannot condone what his supporters will see as excessive or self-serving spending. Attacking these guardians after they found doubtful practices around the mayor creates dissonance in the mayor’s key message and uncertainty in the minds of his core supporters. For the mayor, the next major problem in this issue is that it shows his inability to form a complex policy that council will approve. His inflammatory position of replacing the three positions with a consultant did nothing but prove that the mayor has no desire to find an acceptable position. Surely the mayor’s staff told him that his musing had no chance of success. That council overwhelmingly approved a compromise, a two-year renewal of the ombudsman’s contract,

was due to Councillor Karen Stintz’s tireless background work and willingness to let the mayor take the credit. Despite the half-day lost in argument and embarrassment, positives did come out of the debate. In terms of public policy, council strongly supported the ombudsman, integrity commissioner and lobbyist registrar. Secondly, neither the mayor’s side, nor his opposition, has enough votes without the other. If a major measure is to be passed, there must be compromise. Although the process was painful and sometimes the final resolution was in doubt, at the end, the biggest positive of all was council came to a reasonable decision. n David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief.

LISA QUEEN lqueen@insidetoronto.com On the podium at last week’s opening of a world-first lab at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre was the word “impossible.” After congratulating hospital leaders and researchers on the new $160-million centre, which officials promise is the “future of health care,” Canada’s Gov. Gen. David Johnston turned his attention to the model. He took away the first two letters, leaving the rest of the word standing. “Today, we take important steps in making what was impossible possible,” he said last Friday to a packed room Spanning two new floors at Sunnybrook, the new Centre for Research on Image-Guided Therapeutics will see more than 300 researchers working with 30 biotechnology

impressive. “This is a great day for health care. It’s a great day for Canadians and for people around the world because they will benefit from the work that goes on here,” he said. “One of the important things of this centre is the breadth of research that will take place under one roof.” Johnston toured more than 20 new groundbreaking labs in the centre. For example, at the neurointervention centre, which is developing better ways to treat brain disorders such as stroke and dementia, Johnston walked along a runway used to measure a patient’s gait. Johnston’s steps were long, even and went from heel to toe, which contrast sharply with those of a stroke victim’s. He also watched a demonstration of a two-ton water jet that can “cut through a substance as hard as titanium

and as soft as a Fig Newton without heating or warping it,” visited the cell-killing robot room and put on a lab coat as he learned how to purify and sort T-cells. Johnston also presented a $1,000 cheque to Sharon Yeung, a former student at St. Clements School who is studying at McMaster University. The North York resident was one of a group of high school students, including many from the Talented Offerings for Programs in Sciences (TOPS) program at East York’s Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute, who completed summer research internships in the focused ultrasound lab. For her project, Yeung used focused ultrasound to break down the blood-brain barrier to deliver stem cells into the brain to treat Alzheimer’s disease. She will put the prize money towards her studies in medical research.

Breathe a breath of fresh air Today’s classic home care products have finally been exposed for what they are – dangerous. Traditional cleaners boast health and cleanliness when but they’re also blamed for contributing to a slew of health problems while destroying “good bacteria” and making us more susceptible to illness. It’s time to change the way we clean our homes. Here are some tips to help bring natural solutions to your home: • According to a survey, 71 per cent of the population living with smokers is concerned about indoor air pollutants caused by cigarettes – instead of adding more by spraying air fresheners and chemical deodorizers, try using baking soda boxes in strategic locations. • When polled, 45 per cent of pet owners are concerned about how their furry friends can neg-

Doctors can see in real time where the therapy is going and if they have treated the entire area they need to. For example, technology can disrupt the blood-brain barrier long enough to deliver a drug to previously inaccessible areas of the brain or maneuver through a blocked artery using a three-dimensional image. D r. M i c h a e l Ju l i u s , Sunnybrook’s vice-president of research, called the opening of the centre a “momentous occasion.” “We’re here to celebrate and what we are celebrating is unique in the world,” he said. The centre was designed to break down silos so researchers from different fields can work shoulder to shoulder, Julius said. Johnston said the centre is

David Gibson’s role in Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837 highlighted >>>from page 1 pivotal period in the Gibson family life with the goal of continuing the discussion for responsible government. A surveyor, farmer and politician in Upper Canada, Gibson was born in Scotland in 1804 and worked as a land surveyor before immigrating to Upper Canada. He became a deputy surveyor of roads in 1825 and a surveyor of high-

ways in 1828. Gibson was later elected to the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada in 1834 and 1836, representing York. As punishment for his role in the rebellion, the government ordered Gibson’s house burned, forcing the family to relocate. They settled in Lockport, New York, where Gibson worked as an engineer for the Fort Erie Canal. In 1848,

five years after he had been pardoned, Gibson returned to his farm and worked as a provincial land surveyor. Gibson died at Quebec in 1864. The Gibson House Museum, situated on the northwest corner of Yonge Street and Park Home Avenue, is a replica of the original house. “(Gibson) was in charge of watching over prisoners,�

Shelbourn said of Gibson’s duties during the rebellion. “After the battle on Yonge Street he let the prisoners go. His house was burned while his wife and children were inside. Everyone made it out safe and his wife ran back inside to save his surveying tools. His house was the only property burned by the

government in regards to the rebellion.� One of the programs the museum is offering next month, called Rebellious Women: Teaspoons Raised, will centre on the rebellion from the perspective of Gibson’s wife, Eliza, and two of her friends, said Marie Boal, museum co-ordinator.

Steeped in tradition The Canadian Cadet Program connects the past with the future This month, when remembering the brave veterans who have served our country in the past, take a moment to reflect on who will be their future. Thousands of youth across Canada currently participate in the Cadet Program, the largest federally-sponsored youth program in Canada that includes the Royal Canadian Sea, Army and Air Cadets. It is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun,

challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Forces. Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. They make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship. Royal Canadian Sea Cadets learn about the naval and maritime environment by participating in a variety of activities on and off the water. Sea Cadets specialize in sailing, seamanship, shipboard life, naval communications, power boat handling, boat repair, and marine engineering. Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard

Canadian Navy and Coast Guard ships. The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeal to teenagers craving exciting outdoor activities. Army cadets develop abilities in the use of map and compass, GPS technology, orienteering, first-aid, camping and survival skills, canoeing, abseiling, trekking, mountain biking, etc. As they get more experienced, some will be selected for parachuting, white-water rafting and glacier climbing. They will also learn to become outdoor leaders. Royal Canadian Air Cadets participate in a variety of fun and challenging activities. The outdoor enthusiast will appreciate learning survival skills for flight crew. The athlete will appreciate physical education and recreation, including a variety of sporting activities like biathlon and Olympic-style marksmanship. The artists will find their niche in the music program. The curious will appreciate the hands-on activities such as building model aircraft. The scholarly will appreciate an introduction to the various tools and technologies linked to aviation. The dreamers will appreciate the evolution of technology and the advancements of the aerospace era, including the importance of

Canadian participation. Select top senior cadets may even earn the chance to represent Canada on the world stage by participating in an international exchange. Most importantly, Air Cadets aids in developing knowledge of Canadian
