Cardinal Collins Skypes students at Blessed John XXIII from Vatican CLARK KIM email@example.com
One Grade 8 class from Blessed John XXIII got a special video call from Rome Friday via Skype.
On the line was Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, who was in Italy’s capital city for the canonization of the school’s namesake John XXIII. “Welcome to Rome,” said
Collins from the Vatican. Students had questions ready for Collins who happily answered all of them, including what the prerequisite is for being declared a saint and what >>>archbishop, page 13

the park, Augimeri wants to put a stop to further development. She lashed out at Canada Lands saying it gave residents the impression all the green space at the park will be saved. “You have a for sale sign on Keele Street for the parkland. Why do you insist on saying the park is not for sale?” she said. “ Yo u a re s e l l i n g o u r parkland. You are selling the heritage of our children and our children’s children. You are putting 10,000 new units in Downsview, a mini city, 30,000 new residents, on public land. What do we have to do to tell you we don’t want this? You are selling parkland.” Augimeri said she doesn’t trust the federal government to not open up the park to development beyond what was approved in the secondary plan. “I don’t believe them,” she told The Mirror, saying she wants to hear directly from Public Works Minister Diane Finley about the government’s intentions for the park. Mayoral candidate Olivia
Chow said too much of the park is being given over to development. “My worry is this secondary plan does not work. It is now a housing development rather than a park,” she said as members of the audience cheered. “Why can’t we re-open the secondary plan?...If the community is saying the whole premise of the secondary plan does not work, then there has to be some political will from the federal government, because it is Canada Lands, to look at changing it and working with the city to change the secondary plan, to revise it, so the majority is parkland rather than development.” Fifty per cent of the park will be parkland and the sports park, officials said. “This has one of the highest proportions of parkland to new development of any community in the GTA,” architect and urban design consultant Joe Lobko said. “The question in my mind is how do you make this a better park and how does development that pays for the further infrastructure improvements that everybody wants, how is that managed
in a rational way over many decades?” Residents Andrew Jarecsni and Frederick Stefanou are concerned about the extent of development coming to the park. “It’s disappointing. I thought we would get Central Park like they promised. Instead, we get Grand Central Station,” Jarecsni told The Mirror. “We’ve whored out a park for developers. That’s very Toronto.” Stefanou is also disappointed. “They’ve approved a plan that many people disagree with. There is no change to the plan,” he said. “They’ve admitted 50 per cent of the park is going to be developed for residential and employment purposes. Fifty per cent of the park. That’s shocking.” Surprised by the level of opposition to development in the park, John Gross, owner of True North Climbing rock climbing company, wants to see infrastructure built to support businesses.

No mayoral candidacy for Minnan-Wong DAVID NICKLE firstname.lastname@example.org Last year, Don Valley East Councillor Denzil MinnanWong told Torontonians he was seriously considering a run for mayor. Last week, on April 24, Minnan-Wong definitively decided otherwise, and registered for his old seat in Ward
34, as councillor. Minnan-Wong, who has both been a lieutenant and a critic to Mayor Rob Ford, said electoral math had a lot to do with his decision to stay out of the mayor’s race. “I think the residents of the City of Toronto want someone who’s a fiscal conservative,” said MinnanWong. “They don’t want to
go back to the days of David Miller. As a fiscal conservative, I saw that the field was crowded, and so I decided that I could still achieve a lot as a member of council.” Had he chosen to run, Minnan-Wong would have been competing with conservative candidates Karen Stintz, David Soknacki, John Tory and Rob Ford for
roughly the same pool of voters. Minnan-Wong said he was encouraged to run for mayor by constituents, but also to stick around in Ward 34. Minnan-Wong has served as a municipal councillor for the past 20 years. For the past term, he’s chaired the highprofile Public Works and Infrastructure Committe

Help city improve response to weather disasters
emembering last year’s floods and ice storm may not be on the top of Torontonians’ list of fun activities this month, but the city wants to hear from you about what it should be doing to help residents in future weather emergencies. The ice storm of late December and the flooding after a massive rain storm in July, saw our city hit with two unprecedented weather incidents which knocked out power, caused environmental damage, and millions of dollars in property damage. The massive thunderstorm of July 8 hit Toronto hard and fast. Rain hammered down in a line across much of the west and central parts of the city, causing power stations to flood and shut down, the subway line to close, roads to turn into small rivers, and basements to flood. In the Don Valley, stranded GO train passengers had to be rescued by boats as water seeped into the train cars. The ice storm wreaked similar our view havoc, knocking out power for (in some cases weeks) as Have your say days tree branches toppled under the on emergency weight of the ice and brought down power lines across Toronto. preparedness Hydro crews from across the province worked for days straight to restore power, and the city estimated some 20 per cent of Toronto’s tree canopy was destroyed. In some parts of the city, is was estimated as much as 50 per cent of the tree canopy was lost. They were both huge incidents impacting hundreds of thousands of people and highlighting the need for all residents to take some basic emergency preparedness steps including stocking of food, candles and cash in case of similar incidents. It also showed how important it is for residents to keep an eye out for neighbours in need and offer help. This month, residents can weigh in on how the city did in responding to these weather emergencies and what it might do better in the future. Meetings are set for May 12 at the Scarborough Civic Centre, May 13 at Toronto City Hall, May 14 at the North York Civic Centre, and May 15 at the Etobicoke Civic Centre. All meetings go from 6 to 9 p.m. Residents who can’t attend the meetings can share their input by going to the city’s website at www. toronto.ca/weatherprooftoronto A report on how the city dealt with the storms will go to the city’s executive committee on July 2.

How ’bout that first round of NHL playoffs?
unday afternoon I was lucky enough to cross paths with a couple of long-time NHL hockey scouts, Hank Statten and Scooter Davies. The chance meeting took place in the Chicago airport right after they’d witnessed the Blackhawks eliminate the St. Louis Blues from the playoffs. They were waiting to catch a flight to Dallas for what would turn out to be their second firstround finale of the day as the Stars ended up getting knocked out by the Anaheim Ducks. The legendary duo was kind of enough invite me to listen in while they compared notes on the players thus far. Statten: “So Scooter, how ’bout that Jonathan Toews?” Davies: “No kidding, Hank. How ’bout that Duncan Keith?” Statten: “You’ve got that
jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY right, partner. How ’bout that Ryan Getzlaf?” Davies: “I guess so, eh. How ’bout that Jamie Benn?” Statten: “I’ll say. How ’bout that Corey Perry?” Davies: “I hear that. How ’bout that Trevor Daley?” Statten: “Tell me about it. How ’bout that Nathan MacKinnon?” Davies: “Took the words right out of my mouth. How ’bout that Zach Parise?” Statten: “How ’bout that Martin St. Louis?” Davies: “How ’bout that Jakub Voracek?” Statten: “How ’bout that P.K. Subban?” Davies: “How ’bout that Rene Bourque?” Statten: “How ’bout that Patrick Marleau?” Davies: “How ’bout that
Anze Kopitar?” Statten: “How ’bout that Joe Pavelski?” Davies: “How ’bout that Drew Doughty?” Statten: “How ’bout that Jarome Iginla and Tuukka Rask? Davies: “How ’bout that Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg?” Statten: “How ’bout that Zdeno Chara? Davies: “You can say that again.” Statten: “If you insist. How ’bout that Zdeno Chara? Davies: “How ’bout you get back to the matter at hand? A comic you’re not.” Statten: “So how ’bout that Paul Martin? That better?” Davies: “Much. How ’bout that Boone Jenner?” Statten: “Now you’re talking my kind of language. Now how ’bout that Canadiens’ sweep?” Davies: “How ’bout that Blackhawks’ comeback?” Statten: “How ’bout all
those first-round overtime games?” Davies: “How ’bout that triple overtime?” Statten: “How ’bout that crazy octuple overtime?” Davies: “There was no octuple overtime.” Statten: “I was just testing you. So, how ’bout we get a move on? That was the announcement for our flight.” Davies: “Race you to the plane?” Statten: “Huh? Aren’t you forgetting something?” Davies: “Oops. How ’bout race you to the plane? You happy now?” Statten: “Ecstatic. How ’bout last one in is a rotten egg?” Davies: “Last is not in my vocabulary. How ’bout first one in gets the aisle seat?” Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. His column appears every Thursday.

GETTING FULL CLOSURE THIS WEEKEND ◗DVP East-end Toronto traffic could back up this weekend with a full closure of the Don Valley Parkway. It is slated to close in both directions from the Gardiner Expressway in the south to Hwy. 401 in the north on Friday at 10 p.m. through to Sunday morning at 6 a.m. The City of Toronto says it’s doing its regular spring maintenance and that a rain date, if needed, would occur the weekend of May 23 to 26.
Centre (the former Maple Leaf Gardens). On Nov. 11, at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Heaney was inducted. Heaney, who also graduated North York’s Seneca College and played for the North Yorkbased Aeros hockey club for more than a quarter of a century, was born in Belfast but grew up in the Weston Road/ Hwy. 401 area. She’s now in five Halls of Fame, including the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and Ontario ball hockey halls of fame.

Only Days Left
• Concert tickets: Even if you have outgrown Mom’s musical tastes, she will still appreciate the chance to spend an evening out on the town with her kids and some good music. • Theater tickets: If Broadway is a bit too far to travel, find a traveling production of a former Broadway show. They often feature many of the same actors who made the play famous on Broadway so you’re still bound to see an unforgettable show Mom will love. • Parts unknown: Moms who love to travel and experience other cultures would certainly appreciate a trip abroad or a domestic getaway to an unexplored region of the country. Before booking, ask Mom if there’s anywhere in particular she’d like to go. • Spa treatment: If Mom is still as active as ever, then a day of pampering at a nearby spa is sure to please. Many luxury spas offer packages, especially around Mother’s Day, that make a full-on spa treatment a more affordable gift. You can even accompany Mom and reap the rewards of being such a thoughtful son or daughter.

COPPA’S FRESH MARKET:
Experience a new world of food Stepping into the Coppa�s Fresh Market on Dufferin Street in Toronto, you immediately notice something different from your typical grocery store—a produce department that would appear to have every kind of fruit and vegetable imaginable. “We take pride in having the best produce assortment in the city,” says John Louie Coppa, President of Coppa’s Fresh Market. “In our rebranded stores, the product is the hero, and the department signs say it all. We’re all about variety and freshness.” Coppa’s Fresh Market is the new brand created for three former Highland Farms stores that separated to become an independent chain. The stores include the former Highland Farms locations on Dufferin Street, Rutherford Road and Bennett Road. “When we decided to set our own course, it was really all about making sure our customers got a great shopping experience, with the best variety and customer service possible,” says Coppa. “Using our family name to brand the stores was our way of telling customers, you can count on us to deliver the best.” The décor has been refreshed with colourful signage and contemporary wayfinding that bring a modern, yet authentic feel to the environment. The most striking feature is a barn board wall in the produce department that includes the company’s new logo and the phrase,“a World of Food”in a glowing, illuminated sign. “A World of
Food is our brand essence and new tagline,” says Frances CoppaGabriele, Vice President at Coppa’s. “It captures the spirit of what we’re all about, bringing the very best, freshest food from around the world and around the corner to our customers.” Recognizing that today’s consumers appreciate quality but are also value-conscious, the stores present a dominant price signage program on end caps and throughout departments.“ We have terrific prices, and we wanted to make sure we got credit for it,” explains Coppa-Gabriele. “Our new price signage program showcases our value and helps customers easily find great deals.” An invigorated focus on customer service and engagement are part of the DNA of the new brand. “We want to be known for being the destination for food discoveries, healthy options, and expert advice,” says Coppa-Gabriele. “Our store associates are critical to helping our customers find the food they love and discover new tastes.” To help define and execute their new brand, Coppa has retained Rodmell & Company a Torontobased agency with deep experience in grocery retail to tackle everything from the new name and brand, to store design, website, brand launch and marketing. “Creating and executing this brand is a real treat,” says Patrick Rodmell, President at Rodmell & Company.Walking into their stores, I knew they had something special; it was just a question of defining
their new brand in a way that gave them the credit they deserved.” Rodmell cites the depth of product variety and ease of shopping as key features of Coppa�s success. “The synergy between product display, signage and negative space in the new stores make them very comfortable shopping experiences. It makes you want to explore.” Creating a brand look and feel that was accepted by existing customers but could also attract new market segments was a priority for Rodmell.“That’s really the magic of successful rebranding,” says Rodmell. “When existing customers embrace change and new customers are compelled to trial, you know you’ve hit a home run.” TheofficiallaunchoftheCoppa�s Fresh Market brand was April 26. Customer reaction to the new name and creative expression of the brand have been overwhelmingly positive. “Walking the floors every day, and all I hear are compliments,” says Coppa. “They say the product looks terrific, they enjoy our new flyer, and the stores feel modern and authentic. It’s exactly the reaction we were hoping for.” Building on the positive momentum of the new name, Coppa’s has signed a deal for a new location in the GTA, with plans to expand to other locations in the near future. When asked about the specific location for the first ground-up new Coppa’s store, John Louie Coppa replies, “Our concept will stack up well against the competition. But they�ll just have to wait a while to see where we�re going next.”
One thing that everyone seems to agree on in this mayoral election: transportation is a defining issue. Well, let me be the heretic in the room, and suggest that may not, in fact, be the case. I come by my heresy honestly, after having heard two candidates – front-runner Olivia Chow and trailing hopeful Karen Stintz – articulate as clearly as anyone yet has, how they’ll pay for the multibillion-dollar downtown relief subway line. Now, the downtown relief line has come up more than a couple of times in mayoral debates and announcements. No one is opposed to it (although Rob Ford puts it at the bottom of his list of priorities). Also, nobody quite knows how to pay for it. Stintz got things rolling early on Tuesday morning, outlining a 15-year plan to raise $1.6 billion. She’d do that for the most part by diverting revenue from parking tickets
david nickle the city and parking lots into a special transportation fund, and also charging an extra $3 levy on certain downtown Green P parking garages. In the afternoon, Chow had a simpler plan. She’d cancel the Scarborough subway and the tax levy council approved to fund it, and having secured financing from the federal and provincial governments, institute a tax levy to pay for TTC repairs and upgrades, and the relief line – or rather, to pay for the $1 billion the city would borrow to fund the city’s share of those things. Both plans are forward looking, and could probably work. One raises taxes more than some would like, one cuts services and sells off assets more than some would like. Neither can really deliver the transit Toronto needs.
The reality is that Torontonians could fund rather more of the things that are needed, through the relatively low property taxes we pay, and through additional taxes that might be imposed by future governments. We’ve been taught to avoid drawing a connection between those things – taxes and services – to the point we’ll send our elected leadership to work with an impossible task, and elect the ones who’ll most gleefully lie about their ability to complete it. And that is the defining question in the 2014 election: will voters finally show the maturity and intelligence it takes to pay for the things we need, and turn away from comfortable lies and half-measures? Will we collectively find the credibility we need to ask our fellow Canadians to do the same?

Executive committee rejects proposed councillor pay hike for next year There will be no big payday for Toronto councillors settling in for the next term of council, after Toronto’s executive committee rejected a proposal that would have raised their salaries by almost 13 per cent in 2015. The recommendations came from a survey conducted by OCG Strategy and Organization Consulting, that looked at compensation for

Bad – or just unpopular – municipal politicians will be able to breathe more easily between elections, after Toronto’s executive committee deferred indefinitely a motion to ask for recall legislation. The notice of motion was brought forward last month by Scarborough councillors Chin Lee and Mike Del Grande. Had it been approved, dissatisfied electors could pull a councillor or mayor out of office if they met fairly stringent criteria. The provincial government is currently considering a private member’s bill looking at recall legislation for MPPs. – David Nickle
Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study Notice of Study Completion The City ofToronto has completed two Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) studies to address basement and surface flooding in the area loosely bounded by Highway 400, Jane Street, Finch Avenue West and Wilson Avenue. (please see map).The objective of the studies is to provide recommendations to reduce the risk of future basement and surface flooding, and reduce the amount of stormwater entering the sanitary and storm sewer systems, as well as improve the quality of stormwater runoff before it is discharged to the city’s watercourses. The City has accepted the consultant’s recommendations to help resolve flooding problems in the study areas, which include: • Continue promotion of source control measures which help to manage stormwater where it originates (e.g. roofs, driveways, roads, etc), as well as the City’s Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program • Upgrade or replace storm and sanitary sewers at select locations • Install additional catchbasins at locations with excessive surface ponding • Reconfigure storm sewer outfalls to reduce sediment blockage • Seal (e.g. plug) sanitary sewer maintenance hole covers in select low-lying areas • Construct underground relief sewers and storage facilities at certain locations Opportunities for Review The studies were carried out following the requirements for Schedule ‘B’ projects
under the Municipal Class EA. A Project File Report for each study has been completed and has been placed on public record for a 30-day review period starting April 25, 2014 and ending on May 29, 2014. The reports are available for review at: Black Creek Library North York Sheridan Mall 1700 Wilson Ave. (at Jane Street) 416-395-5470 Jane & Sheppard Library 1905 Sheppard Ave. W.

“When it was launched (in 2011), the objective was to have 50 teams participating within three years,” said Martin Saxton, chair of the Canadian Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), one of the organizations sponsoring the event. “We had 60 last year and we’ll have more than 70 this year.” The annual tournament has become a fixture on the school

athletic scene since its inception, with the North Albion Collegiate Institute Cougars – a team that hails from close to Mayor Rob Ford’s home – winning the high school boys’ title last year. “It was very, very competitive this (past) year, just as it was last year,” Ford said as he launched this year’s tournament at the Cabbagetown Youth Centre (CYC).
Teams from from across the city fared well last year. York Memorial Collegiate took home the girls’ high school trophy, while Valley Park Middle School took home the boys’ middle school trophy C.W. Jefferys student Chevaughn Smith took home best batsman honours as the top offensive player in last year’s tournament and was awarded a trophy for his

He has been playing cricket for years but did not notice it gaining traction in Toronto until recently. “Over the past couple of years, I’ve seen people starting to play but until then it wasn’t really a big thing in Toronto,” he said. “I think when more people start to play it, it will get bigger.”

Let’s bring back play this summer Spring is finally here and with it, the sounds of laughter and kids playing are in the air once again. Bike rides, shooting hoops and playground fun are just some of the ways kids get active in the spring and summer months. It’s a good thing too, because recent reports show that Canadian kids just aren’t getting enough exercise. According to the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, kids should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every single day. Unfortunately, for many children that simply isn’t the case. This spring and summer, consider enrolling your child in an organized sport or physical activity, such as soccer, baseball, swim-

ming or cricket. Freida Rubletz, Regional Manager, Jumpstart Programs Greater Toronto Area, Canadian Tire Jumpstart, explains that in addition to the physical benefits, organized play also helps to: • Increase self esteem and self confidence • Develop leadership skills • Improve academic performance • Teach healthy lifestyle habits “As important as physical activity is for our young people, the reality is that one in three families in Canada can’t afford to enrol their kids in organized sports or physical activity programs,” continued Rubletz. “Charities like Jumpstart
remove some of those financial pressures so all kids can have the opportunity to get in the game.” Help bring back play in your community this May by supporting the Jumpstart Red Ball campaign. Head into your local Canadian Tire, Mark’s, Sport Chek, Atmosphere or National Sports store and donate $2 in exchange for your own Jumpstart Red Ball, representing the gift of play you are giving to a deserving child. One hundred per cent of your donation helps kids in your community. To learn more about how Jumpstart is making an impact in your community or to make a donation, visit canadiantire.ca/jumpstart.
