Taking steps in her mother’s memory Woman’s team raises $200,000 for cancer in memory of her mom LISA QUEEN firstname.lastname@example.org Heather Weir is never far from her daughter’s thoughts. That is never more true than
when Michelle Weir takes part in the annual Shoppers Drug Mark Weekend to End Women’s Cancers benefitting Princess Margaret Hospital. This year’s walk, which is the 10th annual event, takes place
Saturday and Sunday. Heather Weir died of breast cancer in July 1993. “Every single day and every single step (I remember my mother). My mom was 49 when she passed away,”

Duncan Creek Master Plan Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Notice of Study Completion The City ofToronto has completed a study under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify geomorphic (stream study) and aquatic habitat-based solutions to manage the impacts of historical channelization and excessive stormwater runoff in the stream channels of the Duncan Creek watershed.The study follows the stream geomorphic studies guidance document by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Following consultation withToronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), related City Divisions and the public, the following are the study’s key findings, accepted by the City. In-stream reconstruction of the channel is needed because stormwater management (SWM) measures will not mitigate channel erosion sufficiently. Updated estimates of potential benefits from, and refined locations for SWM measures, identified in the City’s Wet Weather Flow Master Plan (2003), are provided. Priority channel projects include complete channel reconstruction of the section closest to German Mills Creek (Reach 1), and local channel rehabilitation improvements in the remainder of the Creek (Reaches 2 and 3), which will provide the opportunity for improved uses of the existing pedestrian trail system. Adaptive Management and Natural Channel Design (MNR 2003) will provide the foundation for project implementation, and long term channel management.
Opportunities for Review
The study was carried out following the requirements for Schedule ‘B’ projects under the Municipal Class EA. A Project File Report has been completed and has been placed on public record for a 30-day review period starting August 17, 2012 ending September 28, 2012.

Teach your kids about finances
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.
Overcoming the stigma of social housing T
he perception that Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) properties breed crime is one that newly hired president and CEO Eugene Jones is trying to overcome. “Crime comes to social housing,” said Jones when he toured an apartment building near Jane Street and Finch Avenue with Mayor Rob Ford earlier this summer. “Social housing doesn’t cause crime.” He added their goal was to do what they can to deter criminal our view activity from coming on their Partnerships property. Credit should be given where create safer it’s due. The North York Mirror communities has featured recent events in TCHC neighbourhoods, demonstrating the positive work by the social housing company to help create a safer environment for residents. A couple of weeks ago, TCHC in partnership with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s Team Up Foundation, launched the KickStart program at Downsview Park designed to teach soccer skills to kids aged six to 12, while also providing them with valuable self-esteem, fair play and leadership lessons. Participating youth from neighbourhoods such as Mabelle in Etobicoke, Lawrence Heights in North York, and Kingston-Galloway, all got the opportunity to experience something new – and positive. As Jones noted, it allowed the children to look up to new role models and make new friends. In the city’s west end, residents living in two TCHC buildings in the Dundas Street West and Scarlett Road area will be celebrating the two-year anniversary of their tenant food-sharing program this Wednesday. That initiative came about through the hard work and perseverance of a group of resident volunteers in partnership with the Daily Bread Food Bank and Four Villages Community Health Centre. In both cases, TCHC residents weren’t able to work in isolation to improve their own living conditions. Partnerships were integral in slowly helping overcome the stigma of TCHC communities as unsafe. But there’s still work that needs to be done, highlighted most recently by the violent incident that took place at a TCHC site on Danzig Street in July. In the wake of that gun violence, which killed two people and wounded 23 others, Ann-Marie Moulton, outreach co-ordinator for Progress Church that serves the Kingston-Galloway neighbourhood said, “If you’re in a community where you’ve never talked to your neighbours, you are a problem.” Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

To the editor: As a former high school teacher, the beginning of September always meant back to school. I realize now that backto-school time is the perfect time to have a frank conversation with children about the importance of managing their personal finances, especially if they are moving out on their own. The agency I lead, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), was established in 2001 to help Canadian consumers gain a better understanding of financial products and services. The Government of Canada has given FCAC the mandate to foster financial literacy. The agency continues to develop resources for students and all Canadians to help them strengthen their knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions.

Politics must be controlled through ballot box
ission accomplished, sort of. Both the prosecution and defence in the case against Mayor Rob Ford have won by achieving the publicity they craved. For the many enemies of Ford, the opportunity to broadcast their opinions must have been heaven. Social media was of full of nastiness: jibes at the mayor’s eating habits, his lack of university education, and allegations of corruption. The prosecution lawyer succeeded in bringing the case into open court. Verbatim accounts of Ford’s earlier testimony were available for anyone with an Internet connection. The other side was no better. At any one of many points the mayor could have ended the circus. Whether through a payment of the $3,150 in question, agreeing to
Beyond the headlines
conclusions from the city’s integrity commission, or simply following council procedure, he could have stopped it all. Instead, both sides have accomplished their primary goal of wallowing in publicity. As the mayor’s lawyer submitted to the court, publicity may be a motivating factor for the prosecution. It certainly must have been for the defence. Instead of silence at council and avoiding the entire issue, the mayor chose to cast the issue in terms of helping children through his foundation. While the prosecution
and defence may have succeeded, it’s too bad neither party thought through the public policy consequences of their willfulness. Consider for a moment if the prosecution were to win completely, which means Ford is removed from office and forbidden to seek immediate re-election. Is the public better served by paying millions for a new election because of $3,000? Will it be our new expectation to reverse elections through the courts? Are we to encourage litigation on political matters? Similarly, the mayor’s position is indefensible. Even if council acted outside of its jurisdiction in demanding payment, even if the integrity commissioner and former administration could have handled the complaint better, and regardless of the mayor’s personal beliefs, he fails to understand that mayors
must reserve their highest loyalty for our civic institutions. A pox on both sides. The judge now has the difficult job of trying to achieve the best public policy decision. Without a doubt he must censure the mayor’s behavior. Maybe Justice Hackland can succeed in modifying the mayor’s irresponsibility when so many have failed. At the same time, he must be careful to make sure we citizens retain control of politics through the ballot box, rather than through judges and lawyers in the courts. A successful judgment will support our institutions, and make our society a little less polarized, even if neither of the antagonists will be satisfied. n David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief.

Keep carpool kids smiling The start of the school year brings many new experiences for kids including new friends, routines, sports leagues and after-school activities. For parents, an easy way to manage activities is to join a carpool to help save time, be kind to the environment and encourage kids to make friends along the way. Whether for trips to school, hockey, or ballet, hosting a carpool comes with obligations to deliver kids on-time, home safe and keep them entertained. Here are some tips to keep the carpool gang smiling during any car ride: • Karaoke Sing-a-Longs: Create a playlist full of kid-friendly songs like “Old MacDonald had a farm” or “Take me out to the ball game.” Have the kids sing-along and for a true karaoke experience, turn down the radio music every few minutes to test their skills. • Tablet Games: Bring your tablet along for the ride and let the kids each take a turn at playing Angry Birds or Cut the Rope. “Many kids are comfortable with electronics – whether it’s navigating the Internet or mastering a handheld game. They’re also
a fun way for kids to learn basic skills, such as reading and mathematics, as many tablets come pre-loaded with these kid-friendly applications. • Guess Who Games: Pick a well-known personality or character, such as Dora the Explorer or Caillouand encourage the group to ask questions or give hints to determine who it is, such
as “She has a best friend named Boots.” • Mobile TV On-the-Go: Keep the kids entertained with your smartphone by streaming children’s programming such as Treehouse, YTV, Teletoon and CBC Kids. You can also stream sports, news, entertainment and select children’s programming all on your smartphones.

Refacing cabinets is a great way to update your home, especially during the difficult economic times society is currently experiencing. Refacing cabinets is a cost effective way to gi ve yo u r k i tc h e n or bathroom a new look without spending a lot of money. However, refacing cabinets isn’t right for everyone. One of the most common questions customers of Kitchen Cabinet Source Inc. (KCS) ask is, “Can I reface my cabinets?” The answerer to this question depends on a number of things such as the family’s lifestyle and the condition of the cabinets. Before investing your valuable time and hard earned money in refacing cabinets, assess the situation thoroughly b y a s k i n g yo u r s e l f a fe w important questions.
YES, REFACE YOUR CABINETS IF: • You like the existing layout and setup of your kitchen or bathroom. • The cabinet boxes are in good condition, don’t have any water damage, and are clean inside. • The design of the exposed side of the cabinet allows for refacing to be completed easily.
• The cabinet has a frame or is frame less, which may produce different results. • Yo u’re p l a n n i n g t o s e l l your home and want a new look to help sell your property faster.
NO, DON’T REFACE YOUR CABINETS IF: • You don’t like the layout of the kitchen or bathroom and your family requirements have changed. For instance, if you need more storage space, want to create an open concept look, or want to include an island etc. • The condition of the cabinet boxes are in very bad condition. Even if you spend a lot of money refacing the outer part of the cabinet, it won’t last long and you will waste your time and money. • You are planning to live in your home for more than five years. If you can’t be honest with yourself, then setup an in-person appointment with a KCS designer who will help you decide if refacing your cabinets is right for you! If refacing isn’t the right solution for you, KCS can help you completely redesign your kitchen to give it a fresh, new look. For more than eight years, KCS

>>>from page 1 passing and I had to do something monumental in her memory.” Weir, who lives near Lawrence Avenue and the Don Valley Parkway, was pregnant for the first time when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1989 at the age of 44. Hope for a grandchild helped keep Heather Weir strong. Unfortunately, the cancer returned four years later when Weir was pregnant again, but this time she did not survive. When the walk was first announced in 2002, Weir knew she had to be a part of it. She asked several friends if they wanted to accompany her and one, Marielle Demers, accepted. “It was such a bonding experience for us and a bonding experience with others on the route,” said Weir, who felt she had honoured her mother when she completed her first walk. “It’s an amazing feeling. You see people out there that are going through treatment, going through chemotherapy and
HURRY BEFORE TIME RUNS OUT!
SCHEDULE The opening ceremonies take place at 8 a.m Satruday at the Direct Energy Centre, 100 Princes Blvd. After taking a route through the city, participants will overnight at North York’s Downsview Park, leaving by 8 a.m. Sunday. Closing ceremonies are scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday at the Ricoh Coliseum, 100 Princes Blvd. “I feel good about it. I’m proud of what my team and I have accomplished. I’m happy to share this experience with all of them,” she said. “You feel this connection (during the walks) with total strangers. Even though your experiences have been different, you have a common bond. Whether it’s a mother or an aunt (who has cancer), everybody has a connection.” Over the last 10 years, the walk has raised $123 million for the Campbell Family Research Institute at Princess Margaret, Canada’s leading cancer research centre.

your heart is in your throat. You know they are fighting for their lives out there.” It is particularly touching to see young healthy people on the walk realizing there are people their age fighting cancer who are participating in the event, Weir said. On her first walk, she wore a T-shirt featuring a photo of her mother. A man walking with his two adult daughters asked her about it and when she explained, he gave her a hug and said he had also lost his mother to cancer. Since that first walk, Weir and Demers have assembled a team that has participated annually in the walk. The Blue Footed Boobies, which has raised about $200,000, includes Weir’s eldest child, Samantha Musacchia. Musacchia, who is participating in her third walk this year, was four when her grandmother died. She is the only one of Heather Weir’s five grandchildren who knew her. Weir said she is pleased with her team’s participation in the walk and is encouraging others to take part or to donate.
