SERVING THE NORTH YORK COMMUNITY SINCE 1957

Mural an expression of love, hope and respect FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com When concepts were being tossed around for a community mural on the walls of the Ranee Avenue underpass, it was decided the message had to exemplify hopefulness, compassion and solidarity. The mural, titled Love or Love after a popular expression used by Lawrence Heights youth living in Toronto Community Housing, was unveiled Tuesday. Created by Lawrence Heights youth under the mentorship of project co-ordinator Joshua Brandt and professional artist Sean Martindale, the colourful mural is made up of words love or love, home, limitless and heights, which span across four walls of the underpass situated at the south entrance of Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Three youths worked on the mural full time over the five-week program, three helped part-time and several >>>LAWRENCE, page 2

extreme sense of collective pride and respect for each other.” Brandt said there are a lot of unknowns and anxiety when it comes to the 20-year revitalization project, which will see replacing the 1,208 city-owned housing units and adding 4,400 new market-value ones, but it’s also met with positivity. “I think it’s fabulous,” Brandt said of the mural. “The vibrance is expressed in simple words. It can mean a lot of things to different people. It’s a very simple graphic design with large words in vibrant colours. I hope people from Lawrence Heights and elsewhere take the opportunity to check it out, It’s a wicked new landmark in Lawrence Heights.” The revitalization project will bring an estimated 16,000 new residents to the area bounded by Hwy. 401, Bathurst Street, Lawrence Avenue and Dufferin Street. Plans for the mixed-income neighbourhood include trail networks, parks and open space, a community centre and, perhaps most importantly, a connection to other neighbourhoods, which is currently lacking due to the Allen Expressway corridor. “Since we painted the first side of the mural all my friends have been telling me how it looks good and how it’s a great improvement for the community,” youth participant Rocco Ursino said in a release. “I’m proud of it, you know, because it’s something I can leave behind. Everyone is saying it’s awesome and beautiful and I know I helped make it happen.”

Toronto athletes compete in Summer Games T

oronto athletes are competing in their own backyards at the Ontario Summer Games Aug. 16 to 19. The opening ceremony of the biannual Olympic-style competition, which features 28 sports at venues across Toronto and surrounding regions, is at 7 p.m. today at Varsity Stadium. About 2,500 athletes from across the province will be competing in sports from rugby and sailing to fencing and softball. Eighteen sports are being held at

19 venues across Toronto. Canoe/kayak is being held in Welland, cycling will take place in Albion Hills, skeet shooting is being held in Oshawa, sporting rifle will take place in St. Catharines and the triathlon is in Brampton. The Games are seen as a gateway to further national and international competition, acting as qualifiers for most of the sports featured during the event, said Crystal Peiris, a games consultant with Sport Alliance of Ontario, the

organization in charge of running the Summer Games for the provincial government. “The Ontario Games are a stepping stone for athletes to competitions like the nationals and the Canada Games, for example,” Peiris said. life skills and values The Games play a vital role in the long-term development of Ontario’s sports organizations and foster “unmatched” life

skills and values that an athlete wouldn’t necessarily pick up in a classroom, Peiris said. Blair McIntosh, a former director of Games for Sport Alliance of Ontario and the director of sport for the 2015 Pan American Games, said the provincial Games teach “discipline, socialization, diversity, acknowledgment...it changes an athlete’s life.” “We have seen many of our athletes go from playground to (Olympic) podium and then go on after their athletic careers to

accomplish great achievements in life,” said McIntosh, who has 28 years of amateur sport and multisport games experience. “And in almost all cases, they relate who they are and who they have become as a result of competing in sport.” Tickets are $5 and available at each venue. Tickets give people access to all venues for that day only. Pins are also available at each venue for $25, which give holders access to all venues for the entire competition days.

Easy steps for better waste diversion H

ow well do you recycle? Do you ensure everything that should go into your green bin makes it in there? The merits of public and private garbage collection systems in Toronto will continue to be debated. It’s a debate that was renewed last week when the residential portion of the city from Yonge Street to the Humber River our view officially switched to a private system of collection. Do your part This now means about half of the city – west of Yonge – has to sort your privatized collection (Etobicoke trash properly has had its residential waste collected privately since before amalgamation). The remainder of the city continues to have its residential waste collected by city employees. But let’s think beyond the method of collection. Let’s think about what we, as residents, are doing. Residents must use this time as an opportunity to embrace better habits when they put out their waste for collection. Are we doing all we can? Doing all we can means ensuring residential waste is properly diverted into garbage, recycling and green bins. This may mean taking a bit of sorting time beforehand. Refer to your waste collection calendar or use the Waste Wizard online tool to get more information if you’re unsure about what goes where. According to figures from the City of Toronto, our recycling has a 20 per cent contamination rate (referring to items that can’t be recycled). Reducing that number is a meaningful and achievable goal. Ultimately, waste that’s properly sorted before collection means more efficient collection. That’s ultimately better for the taxpayer. That’s the benefit. As for the public versus private collection debate, let it continue. Will cost-saving success experienced by this program merit expansion? Will the dire warnings of worsening service be correct? Maybe further adjustments to Toronto’s garbage collection system won’t even be deemed necessary. Regardless of that outcome, there are manageable tasks we as residents can do now. The first week wasn’t perfect for the new service provider, as reports of delays surfaced. A core component of elected representation is ensuring efficient and effective delivery of services. Constituents can do their part by ensuring as little of Toronto’s waste as possible goes to landfill. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

To the editor: Our home pick-up for garbage and green bin was the second day of Green For Life (GFL) taking over the city garbage collection. The left media and councillors are all trying to find fault. But anybody starting a new job needs some time to get up to speed. Well, they were late in picking up but when they did we were stunned to see the street. All containers had been placed back neatly on the properties. There were no upside down containers, they didn’t block driveways and the street looked so uniform it was absolutely refreshing. After years of a uniondriven mentality that didn’t care how many residents they annoyed, this is the right way to start a program. Etobicoke has experienced the same treatment for years with their private contractor. So unlike others I am willing to give them a chance. John Bowen

Bikes in 1930s were licensed, reader recalls

To the editor: During the 1930s in Toronto, every bicycle had to display a metal license prominently on the rear mudguard. In addition to a financial payment, one had to have the bike inspected at a police station. The bike had to have a bell, a rear mirror, a front lamp and a rear reflector. The brakes had to be in good working order and the cyclist had to demonstrate navigational signals. S. Ledson

TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Royal Canadian Legion Branch 286, which counts a number of North York residents amongst its membership still needs a few good men and women – armed with $10,000 in donations – to urgently replace its badly damaged roof. Torrential downpours earlier this summer forced officials to cancel numerous events booked in its two halls, which combined, can accommodate 400 people. Cancelled events meant lost revenues, which are critical to the north Etobicoke legion’s financial survival, said Brian Johnston, the legion’s public affairs officer. “We’re in desperate need of roof replacement,” Johnston said. “There’s no way in the world we would be able to operate unless we use the rental facilities. Membership fees – we retain $18 of the $55 fee – don’t come close to covering the cost of running the building. “Replacing the roof and renting the facilities is vital to our survival.” Last month, legion officials launched a Replace Our Roof campaign to raise the $25,000 needed to replace the flat, leaking roof of the red brick building on Irwin Road. A Replace Our Roof fundraiser held last weekend, combined with public donations to date, put a big dent in the fundraising campaign, but nearly $10,000 remains to be

raised, Johnston reported. Etobicoke North Councillor Doug Ford recently made a private donation, and urged other residents to join in supporting veterans and their charitable community work. Both Ford and his brother, Mayor Rob Ford, are longtime members of Branch 286, located near Albion Road and Islington Avenue. “Legion Branch 286 is a longstanding community institution in Ward 2. Its members are well known for their community spirit, and their commitment to serving veterans, seniors, youth and those less fortunate in our community,” Councillor Ford wrote in a letter of support. “Beyond its role as the meeting place for Legion members, this building serves as a vital hub where various local groups come together to better our community.” The Branch 286 legion gained its charter in 1940. In recent years, legions across Toronto, the province and the country have struggled to survive financially as dwindling members and membership dues and rental facilities’ revenue bear the operating costs of legion buildings in an era of ever-increasing hydro and heating expenses.

>>>from page 1 Other new stations planned for the extension are Sheppard West, Finch West, Steeles West, Highway 407 and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. It was at the York University station site where on Oct. 11, construction worker Kyle Knox died after a drilling rig toppled over and crushed the vehicle he was in. A subsequent investigation into Knox’s death by the Ontario Ministry of Labour required the closing of the scene of the accident from October to February, said ministry spokesperson Matt Blajer. The investigation has since completed and conclusions forwarded to the ministry’s legal branch to see if charges could be laid under the provincial Occupational Health and Safety Act, said Blajer. No public report of the investigation is planned. Blajer said the ministry has up to a year after the incident to decide whether to press charges. At the time of his death, Knox was working for Advanced Construction Techniques Ltd., an Ontario company subcontracted by Spanish firms Obrascon Huarte Lain and Fomento de Construcionnes y Contratas to do work at the York University

Toronto police and firefighters attend at the scene of subway construction accident on the Keele Street campus of York University Oct. 11. One construction worker died and five others were injured as a result of the incident.

site. Another potential impediment for a 2015 completion stems from the need to perform compensation grouting at the York station site, close to the Schulich School of Business, to ensure the building is properly stabilized before tunneling can begin, said Ross. He said the process, which involves injecting specific amounts of grout between the tunnel shaft and the surface foundation, has no timeline for completion at this point. Ross said work was proceeding without interruption

to the north where two tunnel borer machines, nicknamed Holey and Moley, are digging around 15 metres of tunnel per day from Sheppard West station, located in Downsview Park, to Downsview station. The $2.6-billion subway extension was funded by the provincial and federal governments, plus the City of Toronto and the Regional Municipality of York. In June, the TTC celebrated a milestone of 1.6 kilometres worth of tunneling between Finch West and Sheppard West stations. On Twitter, follow @TOinTransit

Girl missing, mom charged in abduction Police are looking for a young girl in an alleged parental abduction investigation in North York. Police said Veasna Heng, 31, fled with her daughter, Dystani, 12, during a parental visit July 16 in the Jane Street and Finch Avenue area. Heng surrendered to 31 Division officers Tuesday, but Dystani is still missing. Heng has been charged with abduction in contravention of custody order. Dystani is described as 4’10” tall and 90 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-8083100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.

n Kidnapping arrest

A man was arrested last week in connection with a kidnapping last year. Police said they started an investigation Dec. 2 after two men kidnapped a man and demanded money from his family.

The victim, who received serious injuries, was located near Don Mills Road. One suspect was arrested Dec. 3. On Dec. 22, police released the name and photo of a second suspect. Cardinell Junior Senior, 32, of no fixed address, was arrested Aug. 6. He faces charges, including kidnapping, forcible confinement and extortion.

n Sex assault reported

Police are looking for a man after a woman was sexually assaulted in the Finch Avenue and Keele Street area Sunday, Aug. 5. Police said the woman was walking home on a residential street when she walked past a man around 4 a.m. The man turned around to follow her. The woman turned around to confront the man. “The man grabbed her by the wrist and the woman pushed him away,” police said in a news release. “The man

continued to grab her and sexually assaulted her.” The woman then ran from the man and called police. The suspect is black, 5’9” to six-feet tall with brown eyes, short black hair and a thin build. He wore dark jeans, dark running shoes and a black tracksuit jacket with white stripes running down the arms. Anyone with information is asked to call 31 Division at 416808-3100 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

n Morphine stolen

Toronto police are warning the public to take care after medication was stolen near Wilson Avenue and Avenue Road last week on Wednesday. Police said a container of morphine pills was stolen around 3:30 p.m. Anyone who finds the medication is asked not to handle it and to call police at 416-8083200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.

Arrest in scratch ticket lottery scam Police in North York’s 31 Division are warning the public to be cautious after an alleged lottery ticket scam was uncovered. Police said potential victims were mailed a scratch lottery

ticket. Once scratched, the ticket indicates a windfall of hundreds of thousands of dollars. When victims attempt to collect the prize money, a request for a cash deposit is

made to release the funds. Bonkey Ochelebe is charged with fraud over $5,000. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-8083123 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-8477.

Senator O’Connor student Top 10 at national junior golf championship Toronto’s lone Top 10 result at the Canadian junior boys golf championship was turned in by a 17-year-old Don Mills resident. Joseph Kremer, a member of Scarborough’s Cedar Brae Golf & Country Club, finished tied for sixth with a

four-round 288 (72, 75, 70, 71), just five strokes back at the tourney, which wrapped up at Osprey Ridge Golf Club in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia on Aug. 3. That’s a better result than he posted for Senator O’Connor Catholic Secondary School

at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) provincial boys golf championships this past school year, when he posted a two-round total of 150 (75, 75) to finish tied for 14th at Trillium Wood Golf Club in Belleville.
