Three years after improvising children’s song Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Aaron Chow began his formal piano training at age six. At age three, the DVP and Lawrence Avenue resident began tinkering with the instrument, which belonged to his mother who wanted to be a musician. But her parents, both doctors, had guided their daughter in a different direction, Chow said. The 20-year-old third year University of Toronto student will be one of three piano students taking part in a unique performance this Saturday with renowned American pianist Edward Auer and his wife, Junghwa Moon Auer. The performance, a master class, is like a private lesson between student and teacher, but in front of an audience. The student performs a piece, the master provides feedback, and will likely ask the student to make changes before performing again, Chow said. “It can be very entertaining for the audience,” he said. “I’ve done it before, and the teacher told me to think of Moses telling people of the 10

Commandments. You’re not just performing, you’re trying to adapt to what the master wants.” Over the years, the Claude Watson School for the Arts graduate has performed in a number of festivals and has collected an impressive array

of awards, including first place at the Bradshaw and Buono 2012 International Piano Competition, which earned him a chance to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. He’s won trophies from Markham Music Festival, York Region Music Celebration Festival (Best of Festival, piano) and the 2012 North York Music Festival (Best Senior Pianist). He has been a national finalist and scholarship winner at the Canadian Music Competitions and has received numerous first prizes and scholarships from the Kiwanis Music Festival of Greater Toronto. >>>NORTH, page 5

Police have released a security camera image of a vehicle they believe was involved in an April 4 Varna Drive shooting. Police now believe only one vehicle was involved, not two as previously reported. A boy was walking northbound on Varna Drive, near Dorney Court, when a vehicle drove up to him around 7:40 p.m. Shots were fired from the vehicle following a brief conversation, police said. The vehicle then headed south on Varna Drive. The victim was taken to hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. Police are looking for a silver or white newer model Toyota Camry.

North York flamenco dancer Flagship Audi heads to Harbourfront Centre dealership bound for North York

oelia La Morocha credits her grandmother with igniting her passion for flamenco dancing. Growing up in Argentina, the Allen Road and Lawrence Avenue resident started with folklore dancing before moving onto jazz. But it wasn’t until she moved to Toronto a decade that she took up flamenco. “I was very close with my grandmother and she was a huge fan of flamenco,” she said. “I didn’t really understand the music that much. My grandmother showed me a video of a woman flamenco dancer and it felt so powerful, so dramatic. When I came here I found a teacher and said I didn’t want to go lightly, I wanted to train every day.” La Morocha began her formal flamenco training with Carmen Romero in Toronto and spent 2004 to 2006 in Buenos Aires, where she organized, produced and performed in ‘Las Lunares + Venlucia’, a showcase of Argentinian Flamenco talent. Upon her return to Toronto, she was a regular performer at flamenco locales, including Plaza Flamenco, Embrujo Flamenco and Lula Lounge. After joining the Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company in 2009, La Morocha embarked on a four month intensive study in Seville, Spain, the following year, returning to Toronto in 2011. Now, La Morocha is gearing up for show Portales by the Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company at Harbourfront Centre Thursday,

April 25 to Sunday, April 28. The show is centred on the theme of doorways, or the paths people take in life, she said. “It’s really interesting because we all walk very different paths in life,” La Morocha said. “Even in dance, we walk different paths. Doors open, we go through changes in life.” Portales will feature new choreographies by three guest artists from Spain, two

spend as much time dancing as she used to, but still practices several times a week. “I was dancing every day but now that I’m in school, not as much,” she said, adding she often dances around her home. “I’m really excited about the show, it’s going to be a beautiful production.” Performances will take place at Harbourfront Centre’s Fleck Theatre, 207 Queens Quay W. Shows Thursday, April 25 to Saturday, April 27 will begin at 8 p.m., and the Sunday, April 28 performance will be held at 3 p.m. Tickets cost $27.50 to $43 for general admission and $21.50 to $28.50 for students and seniors.

of whom will join the performances. In a first for the Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company, the company will feature two male Flamenco dancers, Juan Jose Jaen Arroyo and Juan Ogalla from Cadiz, Spain, on stage. Singers Manuel Soto and Naike Ponce from Spain will be part of the cast, along with company veterans guitarist Oscar Lago, musical director/ guitarist Nicolas Hernandez, percussionist Rosendo “Chendy” Leon and violinist Chris Church. “Noelia is a charismatic performer with great energy,” said Enrique, a five-time Dora Mavor Moore Award nominee. “It is pure joy to watch her dance.” La Morocha, who is studying to be a midwife, doesn’t

North York councillors have given the green light to a six-storey Audi Canada dealership at the highly visible interchange of Hwys. 401 and 404. “It will be their flagship store,” Don Valley East Councillor Shelley Carroll said moments before councillors approved the development at the April 9 meeting of North York Community Council. If approved by city council, the dealership will be built on the northwest corner of 243-255 Consumers Rd., just northeast of the highway interchange in the Consumers Road employment area. The dealership would be 8,000 square metres (86,000 square feet), not 15,500 square metres (166,500 square feet) as outlined in a March 2012 planning report when the development first came to community council. It would contain showroom and sales space, a mezzanine, a service and repair shop and a top floor window display area for vehicles. But while the dealership easily passed a recorded vote at community council, the development doesn’t sit well with everyone. Jim McFarlane, vice-president of nearby Total Credit Recovery Limited, whose head office is at 225 Yorkland Blvd., said the dealership is inappropriate for the area. “We’re taking opposition to this development proposal,” he said. He is “disappointed with the approach of the city to date” for allowing new types of companies to encroach into the

traditional business park. Arguing Total Credit Recovery has spent millions of dollars upgrading its property since the 1980s, McFarlane said a car dealership would “deteriorate” the business park because it is not compatible with the area, would increase traffic and would adversely affect his staff. But York Centre Councillor James Pasternak was left scratching his head, saying he doesn’t understand how a dealership could negatively impact the staff at Total Debt Recovery. “They’re making phone calls trying to get money from people,” he said. “I’m missing (something).” While a dealership is not an ideal use in the business park, Carroll argued it is allowed under the city’s policies. “It is an employment use but not the best possible,” she said. “I would prefer it was an office building with 500 employees going in.” Still, other developments such as a self-storage facility would be worse, Carroll said. “The residential area surrounding this (business park) is heartened by this (Audi dealership),” she said. Bu t D o n Va l l e y E a s t Councillor Denzil MinnanWong, the lone councillor to vote against the dealership, argued the business park is important to the city for creating employment. While he isn’t opposed to Audi, he suggested allowing the dealership could open the area up to a used car dealership.

Volunteers need good experience

N

o doubt, as part of National Volunteer Week (April 21 to 27), many North York community organizations will be making their pitch to get you, the resident, to volunteer. In a busy world, a potential volunteer makes a mental assessment of “what’s in it for me” before choosing where to volunteer. Family. Work. Commute times. Relaxation. Health. These masters must all be served before one can expect a volunteer for even the worthiest of causes. So, community organizations, here’s your challenge: Paint a picture of what the volunteer’s role and experience might look like. The brand name of a charity isn’t enough anymore to ensure the right number of proven and capable volunteers knock on the door. There’s great competition for the time of a community member and organizations looking for volunteers must make the experience our view memorable, fulfilling and worth the organization and the Paint a picture both individual’s time. Serving the brand name of of the volunteer a specific charity isn’t enough experience anymore to recruit capable and willing volunteers. Painting a picture of the volunteer experience can be the best tool of enticement by an organization asking for a person’s time. Engage your volunteer base. It doesn’t need to be complicated. But it can pay enormous dividends. Focussing on the volunteer experience can take many forms. There’s flexible scheduling, ongoing training opportunities, and making an effort to tap into diverse skill sets to bring the most to an organization. In addition to engaging an existing volunteer base, these actions help with future volunteer recruitment. Potential volunteers are more likely to choose and stay with organizations that provide a more personally fulfilling volunteer experience. Organizations of all sizes must be aware of this. An organization active in a community needs community ownership to survive. Having a productive volunteer experience as a priority, from the recruitment stage onward, ensures this – and that the community is ultimately getting what it needs. National Volunteer Week is not only about thanking volunteers for a job well done, it’s about preparing them for the jobs that remain to be done. An engaged, energetic and growing volunteer base is a mutually beneficial outcome for the volunteer and the organization.

Island airport expansion plan far from simple

A

t first the story seemed to be nothing but good news. Porter Airlines, having bucked the industry trend by becoming profitable, announced the purchase of up to 30 new jets from Bombardier. For the supplier, airline and Canadian economy, the purchase is worth well over $2 billion, plus thousands of jobs. For the travelling public, the new aircraft mean nonstop travel to further destinations, maybe at lower cost. So far, controversy has centred on the new jets needing runways longer than those now existing at Porter’s home base at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Runway expansion requires agreement among the federal Crown corporation that owns the airport called the Toronto Port Authority, Transport Canada, and city council. From the point of view

david soknacki beyond the headlines of airline executives, and nearly half of Torontonians in a recent poll, there ought to be no objection to changing that tripartite agreement and allowing the new jets. It’s not that simple. Making room for those new aircraft assumes that the island airport is operating under capacity. But as executives from Porter’s competitors are eager to point out, that airport is a public asset to which they too want additional access. If the agreement is opened up for a bit of runway it will be very difficult not to reconsider other rules to enhance competition, including allowing other types of jets, more time for takeoffs and landings, plus additional access to airport infrastructure. Changes made in the

agreement also mean increases in security and baggage handling, plus provisions for new employees and thousands of additional travellers. So far these changes might be all contained within the airport, and paid by those who use the service. But once travellers and airport employees reach the mainland, they face chaos. At times the shuttle buses, parking and transit on the Port Authority’s tiny parcel of land cannot cope. Given that there is no realistic ability to expand on the mainland, the assumption seems to be that someone else – meaning you and I, dear reader – will pay for public infrastructure necessary to alleviate the congestion. Significant investment in transit is not planned, since Metrolinx is heavily committed to linking Union Station and Pearson. Earlier decisions to keep Toronto’s airport open

struck what the wider public saw as a reasonable balance of interests. The result was success: a viable airport, a profitable commuter airline, and a service seen as positive by the majority of Torontonians. Their business model succeeded within the existing level of public infrastructure. The upcoming set of decisions to allow expansion is different. At present the proposal primarily benefits one airline, while restricting competitors from a public asset. Should the proposal wish to move ahead, the public will need to be satisfied that space at the airport can be fairly allocated, that expansion can be accommodated, and there is a clear understanding of the full costs of the expansion. There’s still a long way to go. David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief. Contact him at www.soknacki.com

tionship. Aaron is always eager to learn from a master like Edward Auer.” Chow, who practices piano four to six hours a day, is also a flautist, but that has taken a back seat to the ivory keys. Asked if he was nervous

about the upcoming master performance, Chow said he has prepared for the moment and aside from regular nerves, isn’t letting his emotions get the best of him. “A teacher once told me be as prepared as you can be,” he said. “If you are very prepared you have nothing to fear.” Chow, who lists Bach, Beethoven and Mozart among his favourite composers, said he plans to pursue a masters degree upon completion of his bachelor of music degree in piano performance. The master class will take place at St. Andrew’s Church, 73 Simcoe St., at 7 p.m. Auer will be performing a concert the day before his master class at the same location at 7:30 p.m., titled Chopin and the Romantics: An Evening with Edward Auer. Tickets for both shows cost $20 for adults and $10 for students.

for retail expansion Yorkdale Shopping Centre is undergoing an almost300,000 square foot retail expansion, set for completion in the fall of 2016. Construction of the 298,000-square-foot space is scheduled to begin in January 2014. “This isn’t a matter of ‘if you build it, they will come,’ said Anthony Casalanguida, general manager of Yorkdale in a release. “International brands and enthusiastic shoppers are flocking to Yorkdale and we’re growing to meet market demands. “The new expansion makes it possible for us to continue to provide the very best experience for our shoppers by bringing in the most indemand retailers from around the world.” The new expansion will be anchored by a 188,000-squarefoot Nordstrom store. It will also house a range of other retailers that will be

announced closer to the expansion’s completions. This expansion comes on the heels of a 145,000square-foot, $220 million development that opened to the public in November and featured five first-to-Canada brands. Yorkdale is adding six additional new-to-Canada brands in 2013 including AllSaints; David Yurman; John Varvatos; Mulberry; White House|Black Market and Zara Home. Owned by Oxford Properties Group, Yorkdale Shopping Centre has undergone four major renovations since opening in 1964. Yorkdale Shopping Centre completed a $110 million dollar expansion in 2005.

Gridlock Sam discusses making Toronto more walkable RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com The man who coined the term “gridlock” was in Toronto to share ideas on creating a walkable city. Sam Schwartz, an American transportation engineer based in New York City, is considered a world authority on traffic patterns. Better known as Gridlock Sam, the former taxicab driver turned transportation expert is widely credited with being the first person to employ the word gridlock as a way to describe traffic congestion. Schwartz, who also created a pedestrian plan for Chicago, extolled the virtues of walking and pedestrian-friendly streets during a presentation at Urbanspace Gallery, inside the 401 Richmond building last week. Over the course of his near 30-minute presentation, Schwartz made the case for walking, which

he said “provided a sense of place” to cities. “Streets say something about you, so Toronto as you go forward, you have an opportunity to be saying something to the world,” said Schwartz. He said when Hurricane Sandy hit New York City

It is a resilient form of transportation. – Sam Schwartz on walking

last fall, millions of New Yorkers found themselves without adequate transportation. The only way to get around was walking. “What was the form of transportation we had the day after Sandy when the subway was down and the bridges were out? We had walking, and that’s how people got around,” said Schwartz. “It is a resilient form of transportation.” He said transportation

planners need to abandon long-held myths about traffic, such as the narrowing of road lanes will lead to more accidents. “If you can accept especially in downtown areas narrower lanes then you have room leftover to add other things, bicycle lanes, pedestrian crossings, whatever they are,” he said. Introducing Schwartz was Toronto’s transportation services manager Stephen Buckley, responsible for $10 billion in city infrastructure, including roads, sidewalks and traffic signs. During a short speech he outlined a series of initiatives the department wants to address over the next few years. While an overall strategy is in progress, the preliminary list includes a wide range of priorities, from completing a way-finding system in time for the Pan Am games, to dealing with

congestion as Metrolinx proceeds with light rail construction. Other needs are making the city safer and ensuring infrastructure remains in a state of good repair, a key challenge, said Buckley given the lack of funds available. “We need to make the case in investing more to

simply maintain what we have,” said Buckley, who estimated $200 to 500 million per year is required just to keep existing infrastructure in a state of good repair. Walking advocate Dylan Reid, who attended the event, said pedestrian issues are often overlooked.

“It’s certainly gotten better in the last few years, but pedestrian issues are often the last thing anyone thinks about,” said Reid, from the group Walking Toronto, a city-appointed committee.

Transit: Toronto paying the price the city any of them. Public works and infrastructure committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong came up with a similar, and on-the-surface-of-it more nuanced position: he told reporters the public should know how much they’re paying for public transit expansion per family, and government should tidy up the way it finances big infrastructure projects, before anyone considers charging any more taxes for anything. On the other side of the political spectrum, ParkdaleHigh Park Councillor Gord Perks bemoaned the fact the recommendations excluded income taxes, which are more progressive than the pay-as-you-go options like road tolls and fuel taxes. At least Perks has made it clear he’ll support the measures in the end. That’s something the mayor and the guy who

heads the committee in charge of the roads haven’t indicated. To sum it up: This, Toronto, is why we can’t have nice things. The reality is that for some time now, things haven’t been very nice at all when it comes to getting around the city. Gridlock on the roads is paralyzing; public transit, particularly the subway system, is suffocatingly overcrowded; and the reason for this is simply that it is all underfunded, and has been for decades. Or to put it less kindly: we have been underfunding it for decades. We elected politicians on the promise of reduced and frozen taxes and the elimination of small fees and charges, on the willfully-ignorant assumption we might maintain or even increase the services we need and want. Collectively, we have been fools.

he Toronto Region Board of Trade weighed in, and then came Metrolinx. Next week, Toronto councillors will begin to talk about a madein-Toronto plan to raise the tens of billions of dollars it will take to cover the costs of public transit expansion. Both the business group and the provincial transit agency have proposed a broad range of revenue tools as they’re called, for public transit. Toronto’s recommendations are narrower. For the first wave of Big Move transit expansion plans, city staff are recommending four possible ways to pay for transit: dedicated development charges, an additional fuel tax, parking levies and sales tax. The politically dicier options of road tolls and a vehicle registration tax reintroduction would show up later. Reaction from Mayor Rob Ford was swift and unequivocal following Tuesday’s release of the recommendations. He wouldn’t support

3D digital ads could soon be on TTC bus shelters Committee votes 4-2 to recommend installation RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com

T

hree dimensional digital advertising could soon appear on TTC bus shelters following a vote by the city’s public works committee. The committee voted 4-2 at its April 10 meeting to recommend the installation of the colourful, static, LCD ads as part of an update of the city’s contract with Astral Media, which designs, installs and maintains new street furniture such as bus shelters in exchange for a share of advertising revenues. The company scaled back advertising on its information pillars following a public outcry. Despite opposition from some committee members worried about safety issues arising from potentially distracting advertising on bus shelters, committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong said such concerns were little more than an attempt to discredit Astral. “I think there’s some members of council who are unnecessarily vilifying the city’s partner,” said Minnan-Wong following the meeting. “They seem to quite easily forget the millions of dollars that have been invested by Astral and put into city coffers.” He said the city stands

to generate 32 per cent of every dollar earned through advertising revenue above a threshold of $1.5 million. But committee member Janet Davis, who wanted to defer a decision on the proposal, said the city won’t see a dime even if the threshold is reached for at least five more years when the contract reaches its tenth year. “What we’re going to see is 400 bus shelters with video advertising and Astral gets all the proceeds,” said Davis. Davis said increasing opportunities for advertising would only lead to more “dangerous and distracting clutter” in bus shelters. “Bus shelters need to be visible, both for drivers and passengers. It’s a safety issue,” she said. Mike Layton, another member of the committee, agreed with Davis. “Digital signs do distract people, that’s the whole point of them,” said Layton. “Why would we want to increase the amount of distractions on a busy street?” Despite the introduction of digital signs in other large cities like San Francisco and New York City, Layton said there was enough evidence to be concerned about their impact. “The evidence shows you don’t want to distract drivers or pedestrians or cyclists when they’re cross-

ing an intersection or turning. And the point of digital signs is they’re supposed to get your attention.” Astral Media spokesperson Ron Hutchinson said the digital advertising is needed to keep up with new marketing technology, as mandated by its agreement with the city. “It’s modern, inoffensive and it looks good,” he said. The committee also voted to keep digital advertising from heritage properties and ensure 8.5 per cent of total space is reserved for free advertising. Staff will also report back on a plan to ensure the shelters have arm rests and other features to help elderly or disabled riders, which was put forth by John Parker and non-committee member Josh Matlow. City council will consider adopting the committee’s recommendations on digital advertising and the updated deal with Astral when it meets next month. If approved, Astral would be allowed to place such digital ads in 10 per cent of the city’s total shelters. Specific locations would follow when the release of the third-party review of the impacts of digital advertising is completed in September.

Mayor Rob Ford’s executive committee has voted 9-4 to go for a casino in downtown Toronto, and expanded gaming at the Woodbine racetrack in north Etobicoke. The vote came at the end of a two-day meeting, which heard from more than 100 members of the public, and showed a significant rift in the mayor’s inner circle on the issue. Four executive committee members voted no to opening the door to casino gambling in the city’s downtown: public works committee chair Denzil Minnan-Wong, Don Valley West Councillor Jaye Robinson, planning and growth management committee chair Peter Milczyn and government management committee chair Paul Ainslie. Mayor Ford urged his committee to support the plan, dismissing reports from the city’s Medical Officer of Health and others pointing to a suite of social problems a casino might bring to the city, including an increase in gambling addiction. “I just don’t buy these arguments – they don’t exist,” said Ford. “They might as well ban food for fat guys like me. We need the jobs – we need the convention centre. People need to have self control.” Ford maintained the plan put forward by city manager Joe Pennachetti was a good one for Toronto. Pennachetti estimated a casino in downtown Toronto would bring as

How they voted Yes (9): Gary Crawford, Vincent Crisanti, Frank Di Giorgio, Rob Ford, Doug Holyday, Norman Kelly, Cesar Palacio, David Shiner, Michael Thompson No (4): Paul Ainslie, Peter Milczyn, Denzil MinnanWong, Jaye Robinson many as 10,000 jobs to the city, and if the province agreed to his hosting fee formula, could bring in upwards of $141 million in revenue a year. As well, he pointed out if the casino were not located in Toronto, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation would almost certainly locate it in a neighbouring municipality. That would complicate matters for Toronto’s other casino-like operation – Woodbine racetrack, which currently hosts 3,000 slot machines. The committee eventually endorsed the expansion of gaming at Woodbine as well as the downtown location. But there was dissent. Paul Ainslie said he’d spoken with his constituents in Scarborough East, and determined the casino would be bad for Toronto, and not deliver everything it promised. “I appreciate that there are 10,000 jobs supposed to come to a downtown casino,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of concerns about the level of income.” Jaye Robinson likewise had heard from her constituents. “My constituents are opposed to a casino down-

town or on the waterfront,” she said. “I’m uncomfortable about some of the details – too much of the report is unclear.” Other councillors heard differently. “I don’t support casinos for myself, but I was elected to support the decisions of people in my ward,” said Scarborough Centre Councillor Michael Thompson. “When I speak to some of my constituents and I say, ‘Would you like to pay more taxes?’, they say, ‘No, I’d rather gamble.’” The committee also endorsed a number of amendments. The committee endorsed a request that the city manager talk with the province about merging Exhibition Place with Ontario Place into a single parcel of land. Pennachetti said he has had informal conversations with the province regarding this possibility, and if council approves the amendment then he will ramp up those discussions. The committee also approved an amendment requiring any proponent provide a minimum of 813,000 square feet of exhibition space and 234,000 square feet of meeting and ballroom space to improve the city’s attractiveness as a convention destination, and that it should support the CNE should it be located at Exhibition Place. The matter will go to Toronto Council in May.

Myles Gibbon carries the ball for the York Lions as they face the University of Toronto Varsity Blues in last year’s annual Red and Blue Bowl. Gibbon will be working with a number of new offensive coaches this upcoming season.

When York University’s football team hits the gridiron for their season opener at home on Aug. 25, they will have a new brain trust guiding the offence, following the signing of two more coaches this month – Bob Rainford and Brent Weir. Noted for his longtime work with quarterbacks, Rainford currently runs his own academy for high school and university pivots, and he has been enticed back to York, where he previously served as offensive co-ordinator back in the mid-1980s. He also helped coach Seneca College to a national title in 1980 and Scarborough’s Woburn Collegiate to a Metro Bowl Championship in 1985. Brent Weir, a full-time firefighter with Toronto

Fire Services, will serve as an offensive line coach. In that capacity he helped Huron Heights Secondary School of Newmarket win the Metro Bowl championship this past season. The veteran coaches will assist new offensive coordinator Mike Comeau, who was promoted in January by head football coach Warren Craney. Star quarterback Myles Gibbon said he’s excited about the upcoming season. “I am confident the offence will not lose a step,” he said, in an interview on the team’s website. “Coach Comeau and I both have a great knowledge of the offence already and I believe we will continue to improve.”

Executive Committee to debate transit revenue tools Mayor Ford not on board with city manager’s report

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Next week, Mayor Rob Ford’s Executive Committee will be debating a long-

awaited report recommending revenue tools like road tolls, a vehicle registration tax and sales and fuel taxes to pay for public transit improvements across the Greater Toronto Area. But on Tuesday, Mayor Rob Ford said he’d already made up his mind on the report from City Manager Joe Pennachetti. “I’m not supporting any of those revenue tools,” said Ford. “People can’t afford these taxes – that’s all it is, tax tax tax. The city’s expensive enough to live in – we don’t need extra taxes.” Pennachetti’s report wouldn’t actually implement any of these taxes. It is intended to provide Toronto Council’s input to Metrolinx, the provincial transit planning body looking for ways to fund its $50-billion Big Move transit expansion program over the coming decades. The report recommends a tiered approach to funding transit expansion. For the first $16 billion, the city recommends using development charges, a fuel tax, a levy on commercial parking and a regionwide sales tax. For later transit expansion, city staff are recommending tolling of high occupancy lanes, highway tolls or other road pricing, as well as a return of the

vehicle registration tax that council abolished in 2010. Staff rejected other items such as a congestion levy, payroll taxes, more land transfer tax, current value assessment uplift, personal income tax, property tax, transit fare increases or utility bill levies. It also recommended that 25 per cent of any revenue should go to local municipal transportation issues.

buy the vehicles. But the report says we should have fair taxes, and recommends against the fairest taxes that were there: income tax.” Don Valley East Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, however, said the report isn’t fair because it doesn’t lay out what the tax impact would be on families – a number he estimates to be $800 a year.

I think we do need to expand transit, there’s no question about that. But the taxpayer needs to know they’re getting value for money.

“I think the reality is that taxpayers feel that they’re already paying a lot of taxes, and to ask them to part with around $800 a year for the next 20 years is a significant ask. I think we do need to expand transit, there’s no question about that. But the taxpayer needs to know they’re getting value for money.” Pennachetti stood behind his report. “The mayor and many councillors feel strongly that there’s still potential for reducing expenditures elsewhere in the province – that’s their opinion,” he said. “From our viewpoint, the dollars are so big that you could look at expenditure reductions to help minimize the potential tax increase, but it’s very difficult to fund $2 billion a year without some further revenues.”

– Denzil Minnan-Wong

TTC Chair Karen Stintz said that makes sense. “I support building the downtown relief line, and we need money to do it. We need a dedicated source of revenue,” she said. Parkdale-High Park Councillor Gord Perks, a longtime transit advocate, said he had mixed feelings about the report. “It’s a mixed bag,” he said. “I’m delighted to see a recommendation that 25 per cent of the revenue go to local projects. Without that we couldn’t run the TTC and

that asked them to describe what they were like as university students and their most memorable teaching experience, among other topics. In his responses Kipping said: “What I always enjoy is the mock trial of Ivar Kreuger we do in class, where students use role play to try and convict (or defend) him of fraud and forgery. They always come up with great ideas of how to do that – and act it out brilliantly. This year, for instance, somebody did a Jack Nicholson impression from A Few Good Men, ‘You can’t handle the truth...’, adapted to the world of international business.” Ashwin Joshi, an associate professor of marketing and director of the MBA program at Schulich, took home the $10,000 second-place prize for teaching excellence.

Teaching Excellence Awards are among the largest such awards in North America. “It is great to see that students appreciate the long-term view on business in my course, something the school has been promoting for many years,” Kipping said in a release. “But the real story is that so many Schulich professors – 26 of us – were nominated for the teaching excellence award, which shows that students recognize the dedication of their professors and the quality of the education they are receiving.” A Schulich professor for seven years, Kipping teaches the “managing globally” course in the Schulich MBA and the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA programs. He also teaches the course “creating global capitalism” to undergraduate business students. All 26 nominated faculty members were asked to complete a lengthy questionnaire
