Although it’s only been a few years since Gladys Leung was their age, she was surprised to discover the social

issues affecting today’s elementary school students. “It’s pretty shocking what’s happening in schools these days,” she said. The Grade 12 Cardinal Carter

Academy for the Arts student took part in the You’re a HERO (Help Everyone Remove Obstacles) project, conceived by the school’s visual arts program co-ordinator Aurora Pagano.

“I personally thought it was a very interesting experience,” Leung said. “There seems to be a lot of disrespect by students using (derogatory) terms I didn’t even know. They had to tell me what they meant.”

Pagano reached out to elementary schools to target grades 6 and 7 students to help them become more responsible for their environment and develop leadership skills, she said. >>>bullying, page 8

lthough he is getting the star treatment on a national TV show, North York’s seven-year-old Daniel isn’t letting fame go to his head. And his “mom” hasn’t turned into a stage mother. “This has been completely for fun,” Erica Chou said. Daniel, her silver toy poodle, has made it to the final four dogs competing for the title of Canada’s Honorary Toto as part of the CBC’s new competition series, Over the Rainbow. The weekly show sees young women competing for the role of Dorothy in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Canadian production of The Wizard of Oz, opening at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in downtown Toronto in December. The winner of Canada’s Honorary Toto won’t appear in the play because the competitors are pets that, unlike working dogs, can’t handle the demands of appearing in a daily stage production, Chou said. Canada’s Honorary Toto may get the chance to do a live performance with the winning Dorothy on the final television show, she guessed. Never having performed before, Daniel got his big break during an open audition for Over the Rainbow at

Erica Chou gets a lick from her dog, Daniel, who is a finalist in ‘Over The Rainbow’, a CBC competition series. The winner will be named Canada’s Honorary Toto.

Toronto’s annual Woofstock outdoor festival for dogs. Out of hundreds of dogs who entered, Daniel made the first call-back and was then named to the Top 10. Over the last several weeks, he and the other pooches performed weekly challenges on the show, such as running up stairs and jumping through a window to land on Dorothy’s bed. A panel of judges narrowed down the field every week. However, if Daniel makes it into the Top 3 next week, his fate for the title will lie in the hands of Canadians who can vote for their top dog. The winner will be announced on the show’s finale Nov. 5, said Chou, who lives in the area of York Mills Road and the Don Valley Parkway. Daniel has taken performing in the weekly challenges in stride, said Chou, who, along with other

owners, was nearby during the tapings. “He could care less as long as he’s with mom,” she said. “Daniel is a very smart boy. He’s very intelligent, he’s very thoughtful.” While taking breaks in the VIP dog lounge, Daniel and the other dogs enjoyed attention from Over the Rainbow fans who came to watch live shows, Chou said. Being in the spotlight has helped Daniel overcome some fear issues he picked up as a puppy. Chou, a professional dog groomer, takes Daniel and his “brother” Amigo, a Maltese, to work with her. Unknown to her, someone frightened Daniel as a puppy by chasing him. The owner of D&A Dog Designs, named after Daniel and Amigo, Chou has set up a fun Facebook page called Daniel the Toy Poodle to follow his progress during Over the Rainbow.

Have your say on plans for Skymark Plaza Plans to replace Skymark Plaza with condos and townhouses will be discussed at a public meeting Monday night. The owners of the plaza at 3555 Don Mills Rd., north of Finch Avenue, want to tear down the plaza and replace it with four condominium buildings ranging in height

from four to 24 storeys and 26 stacked townhouses containing 944 condo units and 100 seniors’ units. The applicants, Willowdale Councillor David Shiner and representatives of the city planning staff will be available at the meeting to answer residents’ questions and pro-

vide answers. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Highland Junior Public School at 201 Cliffwood Rd. A preliminary report on the proposed development is available at www.toronto. ca/legdocs/mmis/2012/ny/ bgrd/backgroundfile-47472. pdf

Readers share suggestions on transit funding

The North York Mirror is published every Thursday and Friday at 175 Gordon Baker Rd., Toronto, ON M2H 0A2, by Toronto Community News, a Division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Ford must focus in next two years

To the editor: I suggest enacting a 10 cents per litre gas tax, GTAwide, doubling of parking rates throughout the GTA and enacting paid parking in every parking spot, even in the suburbs, to properly fund transit and subway expansion. A one per cent tax on corporations may work, although business owners may put up fierce resistance. Unions don’t have the money, the corporations do. D. Stuhl

Y

esterday marked two years since longtime Etobicoke North Councillor Rob Ford became Mayor Rob Ford – a victory that seemed to immediately divide the city into two factions: the suburbs and the downtown. Unfortunately, Ford has done little to assuage this reality. However, not all blame should rest on his shoulders; councillors on the ‘left’ have done very little to lift the decorum at City Hall. In his first term, Ford took quickly to his election agenda, which included cancelling Transit City, getting down to finding metaphorical gravy on the city hall train, and taking on the city’s various unions. Ford found much success that first year – even if that success caused our view consternation at council. But year two has been far less Mayor has successful. chance to Ford seemed listless, lacking vision, except to further alienate redeem in the media and get caught up in ridiculous situations unbecoming the mayor of a major city like year three Toronto. With a new mayoral year ahead, Ford should find another issue to champion – and there are many in Toronto: 1) Driving economic development is an area rarely discussed at city hall. There are empty storefronts across Toronto that need filling – surprisingly many are in commercial retail strips once filled with customers. Working with business owners and fellow councillors to create reasons for business to return is essential to the city’s prosperity. 2) Housing and homelessness is another. The city’s most vulnerable citizens should not be treated as criminals and forced into shelters. They should be treated with respect, affording them a clean place to live, healthcare, and opportunities to feel like they are a part of society. 3) But the most important issue of all for the next two years, and a legacy all Torontonians could be proud of, is transit. Not the off-handed ideas of years past, but solutions that involve everyone and consider the harsh economics of what building public transit means now and in the future. Speaking to all levels of government and our fellow Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area politicians is key. These and other issues give Ford the opportunity to help mould a city into something incredible. But, he must put aside his obvious bias toward those councillors on the ‘left’ and work with them to further our mutual progress as a city. Don’t miss the opportunities these next two years afford you, Mayor Ford. Don’t make these your terrible twos. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

To the editor: I endorse a one per cent corporate and union tax to bail out public transit. Some want property taxpayers to suck it up with yet another new tax or toll road tax. My position is that it is time for our corporations and unions to pay a one per cent new tax for the sole purpose of funding our public transportation systems. Peter Clarke

Bike lanes have a place – make it the right place To the editor: Re: ‘Decision on Jarvis bike lanes a step backwards,’ Guest Column, Oct. 4. I learned a lot from Joe Cooper’s column in support of bike lanes. Mainly, if you want to distract folks from the elephant in the room, include a bunch of historical facts that have little to do with reality in the 21st century. The elephant is this: for decades, Jarvis Street has been a successful five-lane major artery that links midtown and the north end of the city to the downtown core. Based on a number of studies, it moves around 28,000 cars in and out of the downtown core during rush hour each day. When ex-mayor David Miller and his lefty buddies on council arbitrarily decided to screw up this major artery by exchanging the centre lane for bike lanes, Miller stated this

would add only a couple of minutes to the drive time for those who use the artery daily. Most experts on the matter said the time lost would easily double Miller’s estimate, but let’s stick to Miller’s figure of two minutes. It is important to understand that this extra two minutes is not “drive” time, it is actually idling time, due to the added congestion caused by taking away the centre lane. Any good environmentalist knows the worst type of pollution belching from the tailpipes of vehicles occurs when they are idling, not when they are moving. Based on Miller’s estimate, this means 28,000 vehicles are stuck idling an extra two minutes daily during their drive into and out of the downtown core. That adds up to 1,800 hours of additional vehicle

idling time on Jarvis every day of the work week Not very environmentally friendly, is it? But the bike lanes will make driving on Jarvis (and other routes) so miserable for car drivers it will force them all onto bicycles or the TTC, one might argue. Yep, bike lanes will convince a few dozen or maybe even a few 100 car drivers who live close to work to leave their cars at home during the warm, dry months, but the majority are not going to be talked out of their vehicles so easily. Consider this: if the cost of gasoline and insurance have done little to nothing to get people out of their vehicles, an extra two minutes idling down Jarvis certainly isn’t going to. Another glaring issue with bike lanes is how they are used, or actually not used, during the winter

months. During the winter, those bike lanes become snow storage lanes. Prior to the addition of bike lanes, the city was forced to clear snow off the roads in a timely manner. Not any more, not with unused bike lanes available to park that snow for who knows how long. Cooper ends his article “blaming” the Mayor Rob Ford administration for spending money to return Jarvis to its original role as a major artery, but the fact is, Miller should have left Jarvis alone to begin with. The bike lanes should have gone one block over, on Sherborne, since it is not a major artery and the impact on traffic congestion would have been far less. All the Ford administration has done is recognized Miller’s mistake and corrected it. Dave Bottoms

Bullying top concern for kids >>>from page 1 Students from St. Gerald Catholic School, Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic School and St. Martha Catholic School took part in a one-day workshop Oct. 12, which had drama and art components, Pagano said. Drama students acted out various issues students are dealing with, and art students helped in the creation of three eight-foot wooden totem polls that were painted with inspirational messages. The totem polls were delivered to each school Tuesday.

“A lot of high school students seem indifferent about what’s happening around them, whether it’s school spirit or bullying,” Pagano said. “I thought if we hit the kids early, they might have a different attitude.” Using a $500 gift card from Lowe’s Home Improvement, Pagano purchased supplies for the creation of the totem poles, which the younger students crafted while the older ones supervised.

Photo/COURTESY

St. Gerald Catholic School students created a totem pole as part of the ‘You’re a HERO’ workshop at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts.

Bullying was a top concern, along with teasing and lack of respect for staff and supply

But the Grade 12 student changed her mind after she saw perceptions shift in the younger pupils. “The totem poles really made them visualize what their goals would be,” she said. Guan said she worries that if young people get away with bad behaviour now, it might cause worse problems down the road. “They will use their talents for bad and not put them to good use,” she said. Cardinal Carter students have also set up a blog to keep in touch with the elementary students on their progress in combating the issues they face, Pagano said.

Racing greyhound hopes for speedy adoption I

n this month’s column you’ll be introduced to a shy retired racing greyhound named Special K who has come all the way from West Virginia to start a new life. This handsome twoyear-old, 80-pound retired racing greyhound is named Special K. He recently came to Ontario from Wheeling Downs, West Virginia and is now in the caring hands of After the Track Rescue located in the GTA. He’s not been off the track long and is finding the transition to pet somewhat challenging as he’s never been in a house before or used stairs. Special K is a shy boy and it takes a while for him to come out of his shell, so his foster family is giving him all the time he needs to settle in; his crate door is always open and he can access it whenever he feels

the need. He startles at loud noises but is slowly getting used to all that is new around him. His ideal home would be a quiet, patient environment; he does enjoy the company of other dogs and needs a safe fenced area. Special K is housetrained, cat tested and has been neutered and has a clean bill of health. If you are interested in knowing more about this brindle beauty, email info@ afterthetrack.ca or see him online at www.afterthetrack.ca Let me also introduce a social tabby cat, Frederico,

who has been waiting for his forever home since August. Striking one-year-old grey tabby Frederico, was found as a stray and, from what could be determined, he had been in a fight with another cat. His tail was badly bitten and infected so much so he had to have part of it amputated. The shelter staff say he is an extremely sweet and social cat who has been neutered and fully vetted. He’s completely litter box trained and enjoys the company of other felines. Frederico has been waiting at the shelter since August to be adopted and it’s high time his forever home came along. If you are interested in knowing more about Frederico, he’s at the Toronto Animal Services North Region shelter at 1300 Sheppard Ave. W. Give

Special K, above, is a racing greyhound looking to retire, and Frederico, right, is a social tabby in need of a home. Photos/Courtesy

How to avoid a lung attack The temperature’s falling and out come scarves, mitts and hats. But besides cooler weather and a wardrobe change, it also means it’s cold and flu season. For most Canadians, sneezing and sniffles are unpleasant inconveniences. But for the hundreds of thousands of people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, a cold or flu can be very serious. It can trigger a flare-up or lung attack, which can result in hos-

pitalization, restricted mobility and even death. So to help keep lung health a priority for COPD sufferers, follow these three steps and breathe easier: 1. Stand guard! Take steps to help keep healthy, like getting a flu shot. Also, avoid close contact with sick people and wash your hands regularly. 2. Be in the know! Sometimes signs of a lung attack may be similar to what you’re used to but worse. Or a new symptom may come on.

Nonetheless, if you notice any significant change, like increased coughing or wheezing, a change in phlegm, a cold that won’t go away or unexplained tiredness, it could be a lung attack. 3. Take action! If you think you are going to have an lung attack, you should call your doctor. Discuss your worsening symptoms and also ask if your medication dosages need an adjustment. The sooner you take action, the better.

The North York Mirror is dedicated to delivering a positive experience to our customers!

T h e To r o n t o Tr a n s i t Commission has thrown its weight behind turning a Downtown Relief Line into the city’s nunber-one priority for future transit expansion. Commissioners voted Wednesday to endorse a report from TTC staff arguing the necessity of a new subway line that would take the pressure off the crowded Yonge Street subway line. The report painted a dire picture of the future of transit congestion in absence of such a line. With population swelling downtown, and plans by Metrolinx to build an extension of the Yonge Street line into York Region, the line will reach and exceed its capacity well before 2031. And that is with the implementation of electronic signal control and widening the Yonge-Bloor line. The commission heard that the best solution is to create a relief line that could cost as much as $8.3 billion, depending on its reach. But the report breaks down a staged approach. Building a downtown relief line only to the east, from Pape Station down Pape and across Queen

‘You can’t end at Danforth. You’ve got to go up to Eglinton because Eglinton’s going to have billions of dollars of infrastructure on it.’ – Glenn De Baeremaeker, TTC commissioner Street then King Street, would cost $3.2 billion. Adding to that east and west to High Park would cost $6.2 billion. Extending the east line north to Eglinton and Don Mills Road would cost $5.5 billion, and building all of the line would cost $8.3 billion. The report also envisions a light rail line along Lake Shore Boulevard, through Scarborough and Etobicoke, to further bring people into the downtown. But staff made it clear that the biggest benefit to the crowded Yonge line would come from the DRL. And politicians on the commission made it clear that stopping the DRL at

Danforth wouldn’t do. “I urge that we give serious consideration to the eventual extension of the relief line up to Don Mills and Eglinton,” said commissioner John Parker, whose ward on council includes that intersection. “It creates a perfect terminal to tap into the top end of the Downtown Relief Line, which will create, for all intents and purposes, an Eglinton relief line.” Parker and fellow commissioner Glenn De Baeremaeker, whose Scarborough Centre ward touches Eglinton Avenue further to the east, both supported the extended option. “It’s obvious to everyone from the City of Toronto that we are getting tidal waves of people coming from the north, the east, the west – no one from the south but that’s because it’s a lake... Everybody’s going downtown. So really, this line can’t stop at Danforth. You can’t end at Danforth. You’ve got to go up to Eglinton because Eglinton’s going to have billions of dollars of infrastructure on it.” The report will be sent to next week’s meeting of Toronto Council as a part of the debate on mechanisms for public transit funding.
