Davenport residents want post-carbon community LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com A community garden, seed library, tool sharing and clothing swaps were just some of the ideas generated at a couple of public brainstorming sessions hosted by Davenport MPP Jonah Schein to find out how his

constituents want their neighbourhood to look in 2030. With help from Transition Toronto, an organization created out of a desire to make the city more resilient to the effects of peak oil, climate change and economic instability, Schein asked his constituents to determine what direction they

wanted Davenport to go in 17 years. Schein said his goal is to “bridge the gap” between community engagement and the political system. “My hope is to engage our Davenport community to build a stronger connection between local work and connect it to the broader political framework,”

said the NDP environment critic. The aim was to get people talking. “To determine what we can do as a community and as a province-wide community,” Schein said. “People were very passionate.” >>>SEVERAL, page 8

Several people who lost loved ones to police shootings shared their stories Tuesday and called for change on how police deal with those in crisis. “There are good cops out there, but there are some that are failing us, and the justice system is failing us because they’re allowing them to get away with it,” said Scarborough resident Jackie Christopher, whose son O’Brien was shot and killed by police in North York in 2004. “O’Brien was in a park, contained. He was not going anywhere. Why did they have to shoot him?” The news conference, cohosted by the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL), was held just prior to a lunch-hour rally for 18-year-old Sammy Yatim at Yonge-Dundas Square. Yatim was shot by a police officer while wielding a knife on an empty streetcar on Dundas Street, west of Bathurst Street, July 27. “It should not have happened because I was at that (coroner’s) inquest for O’Brien every single day, and I know the recommendations that came out of there,” >>>OFL, page 5

Lovebots bring lots of heart to concrete jungle ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com Lovebot #001, a hand cast cement robot with a big red heart, is dedicated to Matthew Del Degan’s ‘nonna’, his maternal grandmother. Her love is what inspires Del Degan’s art and his core as a human, which he said gave rise to an invasion of 100 of these two-feet-tall robots on the city of Toronto – The Robot Love Invasion. “Without her I couldn’t have done this because she gave me so much love,” Del Degan said. “I wouldn’t be who I am today and wanting to give so much love back.” There are now nearly 100 robots and like Lovebot #001, each has a number stamped into the back that corresponds to a real story of love and kindness, which have been sent to Del Degan from people all over the world. “The stories are what fuel the Lovebot, it is the energy source,” Del Degan said. “If you give him love it keeps him going.” On Aug. 12, Del Degan,

who lives at Dundas Street West and Brock Avenue and his cohort, Rodger Beck, from the Beach, were at Del Degan’s family home in Woodbridge preparing to start delivering Lovebots to locations across Toronto. “The goal of The Robot Love Invasion is to illuminate the love that exists in Toronto and to inspire more,” Del Degan said. The Robot Love Invasion started more than four years

ago: after moving to Toronto, Del Degan, 23, said he took notice of the fact people didn’t talk to each other on the subway. “It made me think, ‘we aren’t robots’, we do have big hearts,” he said. He wanted to give the city a symbol to remind people of that, and the Lovebot was born. There are beautiful things happening in the city, but Del Degan said no one seems to

talk about that. The Lovebots are meant to change that. “Some of the stories are so heartwarming,” Del Degan said. “It is really what keeps us going.” On the first day of the grand invasion Del Degan and Beck delivered a halfdozen Lovebots to locations near Trinity Bellwoods Park and Kensington Market. During August hearts will pop up all over the map on the website http:lovebot.

com, marking the location of the Lovebots as they are placed around the city. Also on the website, people can read the stories that correspond with each Lovebot. Eventually the Lovebots will invade the entire city, from Etobicoke through to Scarborough. Many of the bots will be located at businesses, but they are toying with the idea of hiding some at secret locations in the city.

The first public robot went out in April to Atomic Toy in Leslieville. This single robot exemplifies the goal of The Robot Love Invasion. One of the arms on that Lovebot broke and Del Degan said a contractor from the community took it upon himself to fix the arm. The Lovebot Invasion is the first project of “lovingly disruptive art” by The Sandbox Society, a conglomerate of artists and volunteers Del Degan is fostering. The aim is to help people find a little bit of love in every corner of the city. “The idea of the Sandbox society is you are just making (art) and, like kids, you meet each other with wide eyes,” Del Degan said, adding there are countless ideas of how to extend this project or create other projects to spread love across Toronto. “There is no shortage of ideas of how to bring love into this city,” he said.

Rare look at Parkdale artist Scott McDermid’s paintings ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com During his long career as an artist Scott McDermid’s approach to painting has changed and evolved, as has the size, style and the motivation behind his work. But in a rare exhibition of his work pulled from the past 25 years, currently on display at the Mark Christopher Gallery in Parkdale, McDermid said it all comes together. “Even though they are different approaches they melded quite well,” McDermid said. “You can see the same hand in it all.” The exhibition, titled Scott McDermid Retrospective 1989 – 2013, features large-scale paintings from earlier in his career through to his current smaller works. McDermid has called Parkdale home for more than a dozen years. The coach house he lives in just off Sorauren Avenue is filled with his art,

music gear, records and his extensive collection of kitschy pipe-shaped trinkets. He paints mostly with oils these days, using traditional gesso, an absorbent primer coat substrate for painting. “I’m a gilder and gesso is the material we use in the frames underneath the gold. It absorbs the paint really nicely; it has a good tooth to it,” McDermid said. McDermid has been painting since he was young, but hasn’t shown much in the past eight years or so. He showed a great deal through the 1980s and 90s, but McDermid said he burnt himself out. “I would show a couple times a year and in group shows, but eventually you get almost more preoccupied with the career part of being an artist rather than the painting,” McDermid said. “I found that every time I had a show I would stop painting for a while, I would be focused on getting the

Parkdale artist Scott McDermot has a rare exhibition of his paintings currently on display at Mark Christopher Gallery.

show going and documenting and framing, writing bios and statements.” It was actually fun and inspiring to stop showing his work, McDermid explained. “It was kind of refreshing to take a break from showing,” McDermid said. “I developed more of a private style with the little paintings that were almost more for myself than for an audience.”

When he stopped thinking about the audience and started painting for himself, McDermid said the result was more genuine and personal. McDermid admits he was preoccupied with what many other artists were preoccupied with – social issues, the role of the artist in society and technology. “All of those were themes artists were sort of concerned

with at the time and I sort of wanted to be relevant and I was doing that kind of work,” McDermid said. When he stopped showing and started painting in a more reflective and introspective manner, McDermid said he found people started to respond to his work in a happier way. His current work comes more from a place of imagination, is more open ended and abstract. “I think it takes a little longer for people to settle into them and see it,” McDermid said. The title of the show, Retrospective, is appropriate, McDermid said, because that is what he does in creating his work. “A lot of the images I paint are of people I know, and memory pieces,” McDermid said. “Sometimes it would be customers at the frame shop I work at, sometimes people I don’t know all that well, but I

am interested in the way they present themselves.” He often paints people reading or praying. “To paint pictures of people praying is a little uncomfortable... it’s a bit of a loaded thing,” he said. McDermid said he wouldn’t describe himself as religious in a formal sense, but in a way he thinks of painting as praying. “It is reaching out and seeing if something comes back,” McDermid said. Another theme is love and relationships, fear of love, couples, hugging and kissing images. “The ones I chose for the show were the kissing images and then Mark (Mark Zadorozny, owner of the gallery) helped to curate the rest of the show,” McDermid said. “I thought it came together.” Retrospective 1989 - 2013 is on display at Mark Christopher Gallery (1594 Queen St. W.) until Aug. 18

Speed up coroner’s inquest process

Write us

O

ntario’s chief coroner has announced an inquest into three shooting deaths by Toronto police involving people who were carrying edged weapons and “may have been experiencing the effects of a mental disorder at the time of their deaths” over the past three years. The similarities to the fatal shooting of Sammy Yatim, 18, on a streetcar in the Dundas and Bathurst streets area on July 27 are many. The coroner’s inquest set for October will look into the deaths of Michael Eligon, 29, in February of 2012 in East York; Sylvia Klibingaitis, 52, in North York in October of 2011; and Pickering resident Reyal Jardine-Douglas who was shot after stepping off a TTC bus on Victoria Park Avenue in August of 2010. It’s too bad inquests were not called earlier as the question of how police deal with people who may be having a mental health crisis is an extremely important issue which needs clear and consistent guideacross Ontario. our view lines As it stands, Ontario’s Ombudsman Andre Marin is set SIU director to review the Yatim shooting. The province’s Special Investigations suggested Unit (SIU) is also looking into that inquest call shooting to determine if police actions were justified. In the shooting deaths of Eligon, Klibingaitis and Jardine-Douglas, the SIU said the Toronto police officers were justified in using lethal force. However, it’s important to note that in its report in May of last year into the Eligon shooting, SIU director Ian Scott said the incident raised a number of questions beyond his organization’s mandate. He said those questions would be best answered by a coroner’s inquest. Among Scott’s questions were: Should front-line police officers receive different training to deal with these situations and should front-line police officers be issued Tasers? In the Eligon shooting, the front-line officers responding to the call did not have Tasers. They also did not have access to the services of a crisis intervention team consisting of a mental health professional and specially trained police officer to help deal with such situations. The same scenario played out in the Yatim shooting. A crisis team was not on hand and the officer with the Taser did not board the streetcar until Yatim had been shot. We called for such an inquest in a May 2012 editorial and while we’re pleased action is now being taken; it should have been called sooner.

Holyday will be missed by the mayor

I

n a couple of days it’ll be official. Doug Holyday, the former mayor of Etobicoke, councillor for Ward 3 (Etobicoke Centre) and deputy for Mayor Rob Ford will have left the building, to become Toronto’s lone Progressive Conservative MPP at Queen’s Park. Will Ford miss him when he’s gone? Based on Holyday’s agile defence of the mayor’s nocturnal ramblings last weekend at the Taste of the Danforth? Almost certainly. The mayor has been in this apparently inebriated place before: in this case in a state that most reasonable observers would surmise to be impaired, alone, near his SUV, looking for a party and finding one amid a gleeful crowd of east-Danforth revellers and their snapping, filming cellphone cameras. Social media was abuzz; the mayor’s colleagues on council, aghast. Once

david nickle the city again, Toronto’s news media gathered outside the elevator in front of Ford’s office, to follow up on Ford’s assertion Sunday on radio that he’d just had “a couple” of beers and the whole thing was blown out of proportion. ford loses ally Holyday came out swinging, suggesting that those media – and presumably the good people of Greenwood and Danforth – were exaggerating the mayor’s condition, hounding him as no other politician has been hounded, and he worried about the “toll” all this attention would take on the mayor. When a reporter asked: what about the “tone” of the mayor’s behaviour, Holyday feigned lawyerly

mystification at what that word meant. Then another reporter asked about the seemingly sloshed mayor’s proximity to his vehicle, counsel-cum-deputyfor-the-mayor Holyday demanded to know if the journalist was accusing Ford of driving drunk and if he knew that to be so for a fact. The only bone that he threw (at least the only one not aimed at an eye) was acknowledging that the mayor might not get enough sleep sometimes, and should really get a driver. defends mayor In short: Holyday spun it like a pro, turning Ford’s embarrassing and frankly pitiable lapse on Friday night into a partisan, mobdriven assault on a good man. Aside from his own brother Councillor Doug Ford, the mayor has few allies on council that will

contort themselves so readily to cover his backside. When Norm Kelly, Holyday’s named replacement, spoke with the media just hours before the mayor’s arrival on the Danforth, he made it clear that he was fundamentally interested in the wellbeing of the city and left it at that. Other allies on the executive committee weren’t much more supportive following the Friday night crawl. Fact is that there are few such as Holyday left on council, so able to combine patrician grace and charm with such wellhoned yet utterly-malleable partisan instincts, to assert that black is indeed white and defend a mayor who won’t accept the intervention he appears to need. He’ll be missed all right.

Otherwise Sammy would have been alive today, and it’s time we do something about it.” Yatim’s shooting was caught on video, and posted on YouTube. OFL executive vice-president Irwin Nanda called Yatim’s death totally avoidable. “But what is more alarming is the remarkable similarities this case has with other police shootings in Toronto and elsewhere across the province,” he said, adding what sets the Yatim case apart is it was caught on video. Nanda said the video shows Yatim posed no immediate threat. “Sammy Yatim wasn’t just killed by a spray of police bullets. He was killed by a total breakdown in the policing system,” he said. “Literally decades of reports, inquests and recommendations are

(see story on page 15). Nanda said that’s not enough, noting there are more than 50 police departments in the province, each with different policies. “It is time for the government of Ontario to take the responsibility and institute a province-wide overhaul on police training, policy and practice to change the culture of police and save the lives through de-escalation rather than deadly force,” he said. “This isn’t a case of one bad apple or even one bad barrel. This is about the whole approach to policing that is failing the very people it is intended to protect.” Christopher said she couldn’t watch the news of Yatim’s death because it was too close to home. “I hope this is the last death this way,” she added. “I don’t live a day without thinking about O’Brien and what he did, why he was gunned down.”

Parkdale-High Park MP Peggy Nash joked she may have a new career in her future – as a firefighter. Nash spent the day on Aug. 10 with the Toronto Fire Services at Station 423 at Keele Street and Dundas Street West in the Junction. She said it was eye-opening and quite a lot of fun. “I thoroughly enjoyed it,” Nash said. “They had me out on the aerial truck and everything. I felt like a little kid.” Nash said she was amazed at how well trained and organized the Toronto firefighters are to be mobilized and on route to an emergency. “I learned how quickly those first responders act when a call comes in,” Nash said. “They are in their suits, on the truck and out the door almost before you can blink.” She spent the bulk of the day with the firefighters, accompanying them on two calls. The first was a false alarm, but the second was a house fire that started in a dryer in the family’s basement. “It is a very different perspective when you are hurtling through the streets inside one of those fire engines and

going the wrong way down the street and through stop lights,” Nash said. Over the course of the day, it hit home how important home safety and fire safety is, Nash said. In light of what she learned while visiting with the firefighters, Nash said she is planning to ramp up plans for Fire Safety Month in October. Nash said she is

going to make an effort to distribute information on fire safety and preparedness to her constituents. Nash is also planning to have a fire safety inspection done on her own home and sharing the tips she learns through that experience.

Several suggestions from residents >>>from page 1 The results have been tallied, he reported. Residents made a number of suggestions for immediate steps the neighbourhood could take to lessen our reliance on fossil fuels while fostering community partnerships. They include creating a shared root cellar, organizing collective shopping schedules, supporting carpooling at a local level, starting a free-forall community store, creating a tool library, sharing resources, hosting community pot luck dinners and teaching each other, for example, by holding a repair café, among others. The aim is to “envision a post-carbon community and

if it’s going to be low carbon, how do we make it something we want,” explained Andrew Knox, Transition Toronto founder. “The whole idea is to unhook the collective genius,” he said. ‘Transition towns’ There are about 1,500 “Transition towns” in the world, Knox said. He was first introduced to Transition culture while working in the U.K. as a renewable energy consultant. When he returned to Toronto in the fall of 2009, he said he was compelled to create a local chapter. “This is the kind of thing

that is more than just talking about what we want. These projects are happening,” said Knox, who helped to host similar brainstorming sessions in Ward 21 (St. Paul’s). “There were so many great ideas. I’m always so impressed with what people come up with.” Schein said his job is to create the policy framework to support this work. A report outlining the outcome of the brainstorming sessions is available on the Transition Toronto website at www.transitiontoronto. ning.com For more information, contact Schein’s office at 416535-3158 email jschein-co@ ndp.on.ca

Sophia Perlman excited to lead Junior Jam Jazz session JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com Parkdale resident and longtime Canadian Children’s Opera Company (CCOC) member Sophia Perlman is looking forward to working with young musicians. Perlman, who grew up in the Kensington Market neighbourhood, has plenty of experience working with kids, having spent years doing outreach work with the CCOC’s OPERAtion KIDS program. OPERAtion KIDS brings opera to children at schools and after-school programs. “We need to give kids a way to find their passion for music,” she said. Perlman is looking forward to bringing her quartet to Regent Park’s Paintbox Bistro for its Junior Jam Jazz program this Saturday.

A collaboration between the Daniels Corporation and radio station JAZZ.FM91, the series – which sees professional musicians performing free interactive concerts for children and families – is designed to foster a love and appreciation of music while teaching youngsters some of the ins and outs of the art form. The Junior Jazz Jam series kicked off in late July with a performance by the FreePlay Duo. “It’s fun exploring how to make music with kids and I’ll be taking it into a jazz context,” she said. “I want to find songs from the Great American Songbook that are earworms and really get them excited about singing and about music.” Junior Jazz Jam is an extension of JAZZ.FM91’s

mandate. The not-for-profit broadcaster and arts organization brings more than music, offering educational and cultural programming to listeners. “There was a lot of consultation in the (Regent Park) community to find out how to serve this area from an arts perspective,” said Mark Micklethwaite of JAZZ.FM91. “We’ve done other prog ra m m i n g i n Pa i n t b ox Bistro, including a live-to-air (broadcast) in March with local artists like (pianist) Thompson Egbo-Egbo and (spoken word artist) Mustafa Ahmed.” The Junior Jazz Jam series will give residents a chance to enjoy brunch as their children take in the shows, which double as music lessons. “The whole idea for the series is to present a broad

range of music and provide a lot of opportunities for interaction with the kids,” Micklethwaite said. The second Junior Jazz Jam featuring the Sophia Perlman Quartet will take place at Paintbox Bistro, 555 Dundas St. E., from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturday. Subsequent sessions will feature DRUMHAND on Sept. 21, Thompson EgboEgbo on Oct. 19, Heather Bambrick on Nov. 23 and Regent Park School of Music director Richard Marsella on Dec. 14. The Paintbox Bistro has made a name for itself as a restaurant, a job creator and a key social support in the community – and now it can add educational venue to its list of functions.

Summer Shakespeare double-bill in High Park Macbeth and Taming of the Shrew on alternate nights LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com With only hours to go before she would take the stage on opening night of CanStage’s Macbeth in High Park, Jennifer Dzialoszynski’s only trepidation was the sky. “We all really want to do the show,” Dzialoszynski told The Villager on a recent muggy and overcast day. “We’ll try to hold out.” A graduate of Ryerson Theatre School, Dzialoszynski plays the roles of Fleance and Young Macduff in Macbeth and Bianca in The Taming of the Shrew as part of Canadian Stage’s first-ever Shakespeare in the Park double-bill. For the first time in more than two decades, theatre company pres-

ents two Shakespearean productions at the High Park Amphitheatre, pairing the legendary playwright’s powerful tragedy of Macbeth with one of his earliest comedies, The Taming of the Shrew. Preparing for an outdoor performance, Dzialoszynski’s first, has been “wildly different’ than performing indoors, she confessed. “It’s fascinating to hear everything else (in the park). We’re surrounded by the dog park. On the long weekend, there were fireworks, people brought their stereos,” she said. “We were rehearsing a scene in which there is a lot of shouting. From the other end of the park, there was an “all hail” back.” As long as she’s covered in sunblock and bug spray, Dzialoszynski says she’s prepared. Although, this is her first foray into Shakespeare since she finished university in 2007, Dzialoszynski is excited. “I love the language, the text. The stories are so good,” she said. Since she was a child, Dzialoszynski has loved to act. It was in high school, at Unionville Arts, she decided this was a career

she wanted to pursue. As part of her training at Ryerson, Dzialoszynski took movement class, voice, speech and acting class as well as stage combat. Stage fright has never been

a concern for her. “I’ll get nervous five minutes before curtain. There’s certainly adrenaline,” she said. York University students have played a significant role in helping to set the stage for Shakespeare in the Park. Professional and emerging artists in York University’s Department of Theatre are involved in almost every aspect of the shows, from direction and performance to behind-thescenes production work in set design, set and costume construction, and stage management. This is an expansion of York’s Master of Fine Arts course offered in conjunction with Canadian Stage. Shakespeare in the Park directors Ted Witzel and Ker Wells are the first graduates of the program, which launched in 2011. York student Dylan Bobier is in his third of the four-year program. He has been working on creating costumes for the shows, doing a lot of tailoring. He drafted the pattern for a velvet suit for one of the characters. Bobier currently works three days a week,

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. “It’s been great to work with such talented people,” he said. “My dream is to be a costume designer for a big production either in film, TV or theatre.” Professor Elizabeth Asselstine, chair of the department of theatre, echoes the students’ enthusiasm for the Shakespeare in the Park experience. “We look forward to many more such collaborations with Canadian Stage as we develop a strong internship base with the company for our students,” she said in a statement. “I’m immensely excited that a popular downtown production like Shakespeare in High Park is showcasing our talented students and the skills they have acquired in our programs.” Macbeth runs Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, 8 p.m., until Sept. 1. Taming of the Shrew runs Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. until Aug. 31. For more information on CanStage’s Shakespeare in the Park, visit www.canadianstage.com

Yatim shooting sparks outside probe by former chief justice ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

Police chief Bill Blair has sought out a retired Ontario chief justice to review the Toronto Police Service’s useof-force options in dealing with emotionally disturbed people. Blair made the announcement during a news conference at police headquarters Monday, just over two weeks after 18-year-old Sammy Yatim was shot and killed by a police officer while wielding a knife on an empty streetcar on Dundas Street. Dennis O’Connor, who sat on the Ontario Court of Appeal from 1998 to 2012, will examine how police respond to the emotionally disturbed and will make recommendations on the force’s policies, procedures, training and equipment. “As a result of the most recent event and other events

that have caused a great deal of public concern, I think my responsibility is to ensure... that we step back and take a very comprehensive review,” Blair said. “There’s an enormous public concern about the way in which these incidents are responded to. I understand that concern, I share that concern.” Blair said he’s “very much assured” that the report will be made public. The province’s police w a t c h d o g , t h e Sp e c i a l Investigations Unit, is continuing to investigate Yatim’s death. The officer who fired the shots that killed the teen has been suspended with pay. “We have worked tirelessly over the past decade to improve the quality of our response,” Blair said. “We’ve established a policy framework, we’ve added new technologies and tools for

our officers to use, and we have, I think, developed very, very thorough processes and there’s excellence in our processes and the training we provide to our officers.” Blair said he has a responsibility to both citizens and officers “to ensure that we are absolutely thorough in the conduct of an objective and intense study of all of the ways in which we might be able to improve the policy framework that we operate under.” O’Connor has conducted two high-profile public inquiries: the Walkerton Inquiry (2000 to 2002) and the Maher Arar Inquiry (2004 to 2006). “He will have all of the resources of the Toronto Police Service at his disposal in the conduct of this important review on our behalf,” Blair said.

Upgrades, closures, and construction Davenport councillor promises ‘bendy’ buses on their way to Dufferin route w rahul gupta Financial district intersection

A makeover of the financial district’s most prominent intersection is nearly complete. New banners and street pole wraps are up at King and Bay streets, part of an extensive streetscape renovation commenced in early summer. The renovation includes new street signs, black metal garbage receptacles to replace the less durable plastic “turtle” bins and a thorough power wash of the intersection’s sidewalk. The improvements are scheduled for completion by the end of August. track replacement work wStreetcar

The intersection of King Street West and Spadina Avenue remains shut for another week as streetcar track replacement work continues. The intersection was closed Tuesday, Aug. 6 for two weeks. On Aug. 20, one lane in either direction on King and two lanes south on Spadina will

TO in TRANSIT re-open as construction crews work to complete track and road work. While the closure continues both the 504 King and 508 Lakeshore streetcar lines as well as replacement buses for the 510 Spadina route will divert around the intersection. The work is scheduled for completion by Aug. 31.

subway supports removed wCancelled

Last week, construction crews began relocating overhead power lines along Eglinton Ave. W. to pave the way for the removal of support piles belonging to a long cancelled subway project. While the first stage of tunnel construction for the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) project proceeds below Eglinton toward Allen Rd., Metrolinx must remove the support piles located east of the Allen – vestiges of the old Eglinton subway halted in 1995 – so as not to interfere with future tunnelling. The relocation work is expected to last several weeks. For more information visit www.thecrosstown.ca

station closure set to start wPape

The TTC is set to shutter Pape Station to complete extensive renovation work. The station has been under construction since 2009. It will close for 12 days as of Aug 19 to speed up the remaining projects, which include installing an elevator, tiling and ceiling work and finishing the redesigned station bus bay and new enclosed passenger waiting area. The shutdown was initially

Will overcrowded Dufferin Street get oversized articulated buses before other major TTC routes in the city? Ana Bailao thinks so. The Davenport city councillor is confident the articulated vehicles, affectionately known as “bendys” because of a pivoting middle joint, will soon debut along 29 Dufferin. Posting on her website, Bailao wrote she was “assured” by TTC CEO Andy Byford, following a late June ridealong where the TTC CEO saw first-hand the problem of bus bunching at Dufferin station. “...CEO Byford and I witnessed four buses arrive at Dufferin Station, at once, and I was subsequently assured that our area would be among the first to receive the new bendy buses once the rest of the fleet arrives in Toronto,” wrote Bailao in the post dated Thurs. Aug. 8

Bailao was unavailable for comment, but special assistant Nicholas Gallant backed up her claim, saying that Byford had unofficially given his endorsement. “The CEO assured her on that ride we’d be getting the bendy buses,” Gallant said on Monday. Byford did not respond to an interview request. But TTC spokesperson Brad Ross said while Dufferin is under consideration a decision has yet to be made. “I don’t believe Andy would have given that assurance as we’ve made no decisions yet,” said Ross, the TTC’s head of communications. “Certainly 29 Dufferin is on the list of routes we will be looking at but no decisions have yet been made...” At the TTC’s March board meeting Dufferin was part of a list of 12 high-capacity routes under consideration to receive the vehicles. Of those, about half are expected to be chosen.

Dufferin averaged 39,700 weekday riders in 2012 according to the TTC which puts it behind the 36 Finch West and 39 Finch East service as well as the 35 Jane route, which are also on the list. The TTC expects to save $9-million annually with the eventual deployment of the articulated buses on the chosen routes. Ross expected a decision on the matter to come in October. At the March meeting, the TTC board voted to approve the purchase of 126 additional articulated buses from manufacturer NovaBus, raising the total fleet order to 153. The initial rollout is scheduled for early next year with the remainder of the vehicles to be delivered by the end of 2014. A previous fleet of TTC articulated buses was retired back in 2000.
