Helen Lu, a founder of the Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care who walked fast and put in long days during five decades of charity work in Toronto, died in her North York home this month. She was 82. The daughter of a wealthy Shanghai family, Lu was better known to thousands as Mama Lu, a tireless and engaging woman who could gather large sums for causes ranging from a local hospital to earthquake relief in Haiti. Lu raised $50,000 for Yee Hong’s 2010 Dragon Ball by selling $20 raffle tickets. She raised $25,000 over two years for a video to educate the city’s >>>COMMUNITY, page 4

��������� Graduate students contemplating careers in medical research just got a boost from a Toronto company. Davis + Henderson Corporation last week announced a $250,000 donation to Sunnybrook Research Institute, a research enterprise of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. The donation will support the institute’s summer student research program, which attracts outstanding university students into post-graduate careers. This is the first time a company has sponsored a research program at Sunnybrook. Other corporate donations have focused on grant-based sponsorships. The funding will help today’s young science students become tomorrow’s researchers, said Dr. Michael Julius, vice-president of Sunnybrook and the institute. ON OIL PIPELINE THIS WEEK ◗MEETING

You can learn about proposed changes to a pipeline running through North York at an information meeting tomorrow. The Line 9B pipeline has

been carrying light crude oil along the hydro corridor for 37 years, according to the Bayview Cummer Neighbourhood Association. Now, Enbridge wants to reverse the flow of the pipeline to transport bitumen/ heavy crude oil from Alberta to Wed. Montreal. The association is concerned about the plan. The meeting will be held Wednesday, May 29 at 7 p.m. at Cummer Valley Middle Auditorium, 70 Maxome Ave. southwest of Cummer and Bayview avenues. Representatives from Toronto Emergency Services, Enbridge and Environmental Defence will talk about the proposal, the safety of pipelines, emergency response to oil spills and environmental issues related to the transport of bitumen. The meeting is cosponsored by the association and Toronto District School Board Willowdale Trustee Mari Rutka.

LAUNCHES ELECTRIC BIKE IDEA ◗ENTREPRENEUR A North York entrepreneur

unveiled the production prototype of his company’s electric bicycle on Bike to Work Day Monday. Henry Chong, CEO of Revelo Bikes Inc., showed off LIFEbike at the MaRS Discovery District downtown. LIFEbike is a light, compact, chainless electric bike that combines the environmental benefits of cycling with the convenience of a scooter. Chong, who also launched a campaign on Indiegogo to fund the first production run of the bike, said he is determined to get people out of their cars and on to two wheels. “In Toronto, 82 per cent of downtown dwellers commute less than 10 kilometres and only six per cent travel by bike,” he said in a statement. “To encourage people to bike, we need a simple solution that offers the option to travel without breaking a sweat and not worry about showering, changing and parking. That’s where LIFEbike comes in.”

The bike weighs 33 pounds including battery and can reach speeds of 25 kilometres per hour. It costs less than five cents of electricity a day to operate. The Indiegogo campaign aims to fund the production of 20 bikes, which will sell for about $1,800 each. ACES DAY APPEALS TO YOUNG TENNIS PROS ◗LITTLE

Toronto French School student wins first in Poetry in Voice bilingual competition Khalil Mair takes home a $5,000 prize, earns $1,000 for school library JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com Toronto French School student Khalil Mair may be short on life experience, but he is certainly not short on talent. Mair, who is currently in Grade 9 at the Lawrence and Bayview avenues area school, recently won first prize in the national Poetry in Voice finals, taking home a $5,000 prize for himself and earning $1,000 for his school’s library. “What I love about poetry is that it manages to condense emotion and a strong message into such a short work,” he said. While Mair writes his own poetry based on his reactions to current events, like his fellow Poetry in Voice competitors, he was given a list of pre-published poems from which to choose for the competition. His choice for the Englishlanguage poem was certainly unusual for a teenaged boy; he selected Elizabeth Bachinsky’s Wolf Lake, a harrowing piece that tackles the difficult subject of sexual abuse.

“I read the first few lines and even though it was from a woman’s point of view, it was so incredibly powerful I just had to do it,” he said. To read the difficult poem, he had to place himself fully in the role of the poem’s narrator as she goes through a whirlwind of emotions in speaking of horrific violence. “The poem has a life of its own so it wouldn’t be right for me to try to make it my own,” Mair said. “I had to only use my voice as a tool. I had to try to find out where the energy in the poem peaks and make sure the power and tone of my voice got that across.” As an entrant in the bilingual portion of the Poetry in Voice competition, Mair also had to read a French poem. He selected Albert Samain’s Il est d’etranges soirs for that portion of the competition, though he admitted he was not as naturally drawn to that work. “I liked it, but I mostly chose it because the competition has requirements where you have to read one poem writ-

ten before the 20th century and one poem under 25 lines and that met the criteria,” he said. That Mair won in the Poetry in Voice bilingual stream is impressive in its own right. He only began attending French school in Grade 7, when he entered the French stream at the Bayview Glen School. “I just decided I wanted a challenge and learning French was a good one,” he said. Mair is active at school as a member of the student council and the classical club. He also takes part in the model United Nations and is an avid debater. His win in the Poetry in Voice finals earned him some time with author Margaret Atwood, who imparted some wisdom to him and his fellow winners, pointing out that at their young ages, they must soak up experience in order to ensure their own work is informed. Mair beat out Elisabeth Sohier-Poirier of the Lycée Français de Toronto and Aisha Nafees of Montreal’s Westmount High School to take home first prize.

As a child, Lu saw her parents and grandparents helping the poor in Shanghai, she said in a 2007 interview. After the family settled in Taiwan, Lu met her husband, Lu Wu Che, while asking for charitable contributions in the offices of Taiwan’s highway bureau, where they both worked.

She was a founding director of the Chinese Canadian Council of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, starting the Heartbeat News in 1993 and initiating the foundation’s Sing For Your Heart fundraising gala. Yee Hong, however, said out of all the causes Lu helped, “she breathed Yee Hong, the organization that she so proudly and so fondly called her home,” and the Yee Hong Foundation said she leaves “an unforgettable legacy” in “those whose lives she touched and changed for the better.” Lu’s efforts earned her dozens of awards, including the Order of Ontario, the Ontario Medal For Good Citizenship and Yee Hong Foundation’s Golden Ray.

S

pring has sprung: Flowers are blooming. Trees have started to bud. And communities across the city are cleaning up parks, and planting community gardens. What a wonderful way to beautify the community and bring neighbours together with a common goal of making their little part of a big city look great. When a group of like-minded people come together to help make their communities a more beautiful place to live, work and play, the entire city should take note - not just those benefitting from the beauty on their street or neighbourhood. Community garden initiatives, like the annual North York Great Front Gardens Awards, which honour residents and organizathat turn their front yards our view tions into gardening works of art, work help better what makes Toronto Community to such a great place – community. And there are many more garspirit can dens and groups across the city, grow, too not just those listed above. You can find people planting flowers, plants, and vegetables across the city. These groups, whether organized in an official capacity or just a handful of like-minded neighbours, help elevate the spirit of all Torontonians. A well-loved street, park or community garden can make quick friends of people just enjoying the beauty. And community spirit is infectious, leading more and more people to take ownership of their little part of the city. You see it everywhere. Getting people out and about not only helps build connections between them, but improves the safety of a community as well. Beautiful places for people to sit, brings people out at night, taking the night back from more nefarious members of our communities. ‘Friends of...’ this park or that park are popping up everywhere. People are taking pride in their neighbourhoods, and community gardens are a great start. Here’s a challenge: try to find something uniquely horticultural about your neighbourhood. A native plant species, some of the native wildlife that might frequent a community garden. Maybe even some critters you don’t want hanging around like raccoons and how best to naturally keep them away from your vegetables. The more you know about your community, the more you will love it.

Stop talking transit, Resident concerned over impact of ‘glorified streetcars’ on neighbourhoods already; get on with it To the editor: The surface option for the Scarborough LRTs will require a lot of operating room. Metrolinx is about to turn our vital main streets into ugly transportation corridors complete with raised track beds and unknown kilometres of steel support towers strung with the power lines needed to run these glorified streetcars. Does that mean Sheppard and Finch avenues will be reduced to one lane east and one lane west, plus bike lanes, for all of the other users of the road? Can anyone envision the gridlock as the ‘conga line’ of cars and trucks tries to navigate the remainder of these once vital thoroughfares? This leaves us with several other unanswered questions. Where will all of the

cars go? Will they have to add to the congestion on Lawrence, Ellesmere and Steeles avenues instead? Onto our side streets? Are residents going to be subjected to endless kilometres of traffic calming measures such as speed bumps? What happens to the emergency service vehicles? Do they have to take to the rabbit warren of side streets as they try to save our lives and property? Has anyone realized there will no longer be a centre lane available for making left hand turns unless you are at a major intersection? So how do residents get to their homes? They won’t be making any more left-hand turns onto or off of the side streets. How long will it take until local businesses start to see a fall-off in

sales, especially during the lengthy construction period, and then decide to relocate because no one can get to their locations by car anymore? Will this leave these areas vulnerable for exploitation by highrise construction such as Yonge Street and Sheppard? Say goodbye to your neighbourhoods. We also know that pedestrians and cyclists are going to short-cut across the tracks to get to where they want to go. So does that mean putting up physical barriers along the entire track system to make sure that no one gets killed? The CEO of Metrolinx recently said they are committed to the above ground-option for Scarborough. Has Metrolinx honestly explained to us just how they are going to decrease

the current travel times over the present TTC bus service? Will there be fewer scheduled stops for passengers? Do they eliminate crosswalks and run red lights as the other option? How can something that is supposed to be part of the flow of traffic not be affected by these vital traffic controls? We have been told by many different enlightened sources the LRT is the best value for the money and therefore it is the best option for Toronto. I’m sure some minds residing in some steel and glass tower in another part of Toronto think that it may be. Chris Belfontaine

the north york mirror tackles a local issue. this week: humber river hospital

Humber River Hospital: a numerical look

our exclusive look

The new Humber River Hospital is now being built at Hwy. 401 and Keele Street. Costing more than $1.7-billion, the hospital is expected to open its doors in the fall of 2015. As North America’s first

fully digital hospital, patients, for example, will be able to check in at kiosks, which will alert medical personnel they have arrived for their surgery. Because patient records will be automatically updated, they won’t have to answer

the same questions over and over again. Patients will also be able to order meals from their bedside, have video calls with their families and access multi-language educational materials.

Doctors will be able to use voice-recognition technology at patients’ bedsides rather than scrawling notes. The Mirror asked Humber River Hospital to provide numbers about the construction and operation of

the new hospital. Here are facts officials provided. What are your observations about the construction of the new hospital? Email us at nym@insidetoronto.com

community funding not on exec. agenda wTransit Given the rather astounding turns that events at Toronto City Hall have taken in the past week, it’s probably impossible to set an accurate agenda for this coming week. But business does go on, even for embattled Mayor Rob Ford. Today his executive committee meets – at a meeting that if he’d had his way, would have included a late-in-themonth debate on transit revenue tools. But city council seized that issue and dealt with it at its May meeting. of city wards discussed wReshaping

The executive committee will be debating the shape of city councillors’ 44 wards – or at least a process for reshaping them. Staff are recommending that the city hire a consultant to review new ward boundaries, based on changing demographics. The process of setting boundaries is always politically fraught – if politicians get too deeply involved, the result can be gerrymander-

tee, to ask that the province require vehicles to leave one meter of space when passing cyclists. The matter is strictly speaking out of the purview of council – the Ministry of Transportation must approve the change, amending the Highway Traffic Act and revising the Ontario Driver’s Handbook. But council can make the request, if executive committee recommends that it do so.

david nickle the agenda ing in such a way that gives advantages to incumbents, or particular parties. The consultant is expected to provide an unbiased set of recommendations. Dinner on slate at executive meeting Dinner is also on the menu at executive committee – in particular, a proposal to add a dinner break to council’s marathon meetings. Scarborough East Councillor Paul Ainslie said that the city should set a half-hour break between 6 p.m. and 6:30. Council’s afternoon/evening session runs from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. without a break. Ainslie argues that the Employment Standards Act requires employees to have a meal break after five hours at work.

The study will be conducted in the Auditor General’s Continuous Controls system for monitoring various city expenses. The program was initiated in 2011, initially looking at employee overtime and mileage reimbursements. The auditor general began examining staff absences in January of 2013.

agrees to new wboard newstand contract At a meeting last Friday, May 24, the TTC board agreed to approve an amended contract for the operation of subway station newsstands, which came under scrutiny following criticism from Mayor Rob Ford. The new deal with Tobmar Investments reduces the size of the contract to operate the Gateway newsstands and convenience stores from 10 to four years after which the contract must be put to public tender. The new deal, which is supposed to kick in following the expiration of the current contract in 2014, will continue to give Tobmar exclusive rights to TTC’s newsstand locations until 2018. station closure starts in June wPape

Following a customer survey, the TTC announced it is closing Pape subway station for an extended amount of time in June to complete renovation work ahead of schedule. Beginning on Saturday, June 15, there will be no buses or subways at the station until

Local cycling groups celebrated the start of Bike Month which kicked off on Monday, May 27. The region-wide initiative is an undertaking of groups such as Cycle Toronto and Smart Commute, which is supported by Metrolinx, as well as other organizations who want more residents to rely on pedal power to get around the city. Bike Week began with Bike to Work Day which saw several groups take part in organized rides, including one from the intersection of Yonge and Bloor streets to Nathan Phillips Square where a pancake breakfast was served.

Planned every day of Bike Month are various events including races, bike tours, seminars, group rides and repair workshops. For a full calendar, visit www.bikemonth2013.ca Quay streetcar work continues wQueens

Work continues on a new streetcar right-of-way along Queens Quay. Construction crews continue to demolish the existing track corridor along the waterfront’s most prominent street between Lower Spadina Avenue and Yo Yo Ma Lane. They are expected to begin backfill and repaving work starting next week. On Monday, May 27, TTC crews began to deliver streetcar rail materials to a staging site which must be welded together before they are installed and electrified by the end of the year. The work is part on going renovations of Queen’s Quay expected to be completed sometime in 2014. Rahul Gupta is the Mirror’s transit reporter. His column runs every Tuesday.

Artists get to meet Governor-General David Johnston >>>from page 1 More than 1,049 submissions were received from coast to coast and the seven winning banners have been professionally produced by the NCC and will be flown in Major’s Hill Park until October. On May 31, the artists who created the Top 3 banners, along with their classmates, will meet with Canadian Gov.-Gen. David Johnston, via video conference, to discuss their banner and how they can participate in building smarter and more caring communities. The Windfields students placed in the Top 3. Submission for the contest, now in its fourth year, were judged by a threemember panel and looked for both artistic merit and content of the message, said Kerrie Rodier, co-ordinator of school programs and youth engagement for NCC. “The theme is wide open,” she said. “The only guidance they had was to tell

something of importance to Canadian youth. There was a lot of concern about the future. We frequently see issues related to the environment, nature, diversity and acceptance, sports and issues that are specific to the parts of the country they’re from.”

They should feel really proud of themselves; there were over 1,000 entries. – Kerrie Rodier

Windfields’ Timothy Choi, Truman Wong and Catherine Zhang focused on nature, particularly wild animals. “We want Canadian youth to be aware of and respect animals in the wild. We would love for generation upon generation of children to be able to appreciate the wonders of Canadian nature,” the Grade 8 students

wrote of their piece. The students learned about the contest in art class and thought it would be interesting to submit a piece, Catherine said. “ We wanted to draw something that represented Canadians and Canadian children everywhere,” said the 13-year-old. “We liked animals and nature and in Grade 7, we had an art project about the Aboriginal art style of animals, so we included a Haida wolf.” The banner, which also shows the northern lights in the background, took about five days of in-class work to create, along with time spent out of school, she said. “We all worked really hard,” Catherine said, adding the group was shocked to learn they placed in the Top 7. As for the video conference with Johnston, she said she’s honoured for the experience. “I’m going to ask him a

few questions about what he wants the next generation of children to do, and questions about his work,” she said. Rodier said the NCC decided to target the grades 5 to 8 range because youth that age don’t always feel their opinions are valued. “They might not have had a chance to express themselves in a national forum,” she said. “Maybe they don’t feel people are listening to them.” Banners were created in groups of two to three and winners were informed in late March or early April, she said, adding the NCC will send a copied set of banners to the winners and their school. “They should feel really proud of themselves, there were over 1,000 entries,” Rodier said.
