WHAT TO EAT? Rebekah Wise, 8, right, and her brother Julian, 5, consider how to spend their money at the bake sale in Fred Hamilton Park Saturday during the Roxton Road block party. Proceeds from the event benefited Friends of Roxton Road Parks revitalization initiatives for Fred Hamilton, George Ben and Roxton Road parks.

Arrabon House spreads Stop the “Crazy” campaign JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com While education surrounding mental illness has grown in recent years, volunteers from Parkdale’s Arrabon House are still looking to Stop the “Crazy”. A group of staffers and a resident from the shelter and support agency took to the streets of downtown

Toronto on Wednesday, Aug. 15 to help break down misconceptions surrounding mental health issues. While downtown, they held up signs designed to spread the word that mental health is unfairly viewed in an inaccurate light and enlisted passersby to sign postcards pledging to end the stigma surrounding mental health. “We’re kicking off our com-

ports for girls aged 13 to 18 who have suffered abuse, trauma and mental health issues. Curnew-Harris said the organization’s Stop the “Crazy” campaign is one of several campaigns Arrabon House plans on starting in the coming months.

The provincial government will adopt John Tory’s recommendations regarding the future of Ontario Place, a decision that has rankled MPP Rosario Marchese. The province announced on Wednesday, Aug. 15 it was endorsing all 18 of the recommendations in Tory’s report, which calls for the land to be reused to include residential, business, shopping and entertainment areas. Ontario Minister of Tourism Michael Chan said the next step is to look into the quality of the soil, surface and water in the area. “Ontario Place was built 41 years ago and environmental assessments 41 years ago were certainly different than now,” he said. He added the government would later put out a request for qualifications from interested parties, followed by a request for proposals. Chan said the two highlights of the redeveloped land would be a marquee park to provide recreational opportunities for those living in the area and tourists, as well as the theme, which calls for the area to be a place where people can “live, work, play, discover or learn.” “The park will be there to realize the theme,” he said. “There will be business possibilities and maybe performance venues, whether that’s musical, theatrical or cultural.” Chan said he hopes the request for proposals will draw plans that retain the iconic Cinesphere and the pods over the lake. “I myself will try hard to have these two features (retained,)” he said. “Anyone who submits a plan >>>MPP, page 7

Art and music take over Sunnyside, Aug. 26 ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com Photos of the Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion from the 1920s show swarms of people wading in the water, lounging on the beach and hanging over the building’s secondfloor railing just taking it all in. Although the picture at Sunnyside beach today is quite different, Christie Pearson said she hopes the event Fire on the Water – a free, all ages swim-in and dance party – will transform the pavilion into a scene from yesteryear. Built in 1920, the grand Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion, just south of Lake Shore Boulevard in Parkdale, originally served as changing facilities for swimming in Lake Ontario. “That building is so beautiful, and when you look at it you realize it is from an era when people had a different idea about what Toronto is, what it means to swim at the beach,” said Pearson, the artistic director of Fire on the Water. At one time the building had large open gates all along the waterfront so people could flow through to the changing rooms. Swimming was something grand, done publicly and by the masses. “It was set amongst a big park, dance halls and restaurants, amusement rides,” she said. “But it has just sort of dwindled to this thing that is, in a way, small, but it is still huge,” Pearson said. “It is still bigger than our imagination of what

swimming can be. Have we built a swimming pool that is as awesome as that in the past 100 years? I don’t think so.” Those walk-throughs to the old change areas are all blocked off now, and there are just a few slightly inconspicuous entrances to the existing courtyards. Gates block the access to the second floor. But on Sunday, Aug. 26 from 2 p.m. to midnight, Pearson said the gates that block the grand staircase to the second floor will swing open and the building will be brought to life. “Forget all the other things we are doing, just walking up the grand staircase and standing there and seeing the lake, you are presented with the sublime experience of the lake and of the city,” Pearson said. “Even if people just had that experience I would be happy, but there is so much more, there is going to be DJs and a party and people dancing all night.” There will be projection and sound installations by a number of artists. At sunset, dancers will come down through the courtyard, out through the beach where they will dance through to the water while onlookers join in. “The idea is we want to appease the ‘spirit’ of Lake Ontario in an imaginative way,” Pearson said. “That body of water has a life to it and we want to say ‘We love you.’” The event is nearly taking over

the entire space; even the Gus Ryder Swimming Pool, at the foot of Lake Shore and Parkside Drive, will have an underwater sound piece. “I just want everyone to have that experience,” Pearson said. “Even though it is a publicly owned building, it is managed by a private group and it is rented out, but you have to pay a lot of money to use that space. I think there are things that are in danger of getting lost in the city when we don’t recognize their

value or we don’t recognize that they are ours,” she said. Pearson, who lives at Bathurst and Queen streets area, and who, in addition to being an installation and sculpture artist works is an architect, explained that since she was in university, bathing culture and bathhouses have always intrigued her. Fire on the Water is a presentation of The Waves, an artistic collaboration between Pearson and

her husband Marcus Boon. The Waves had a successful installation called Night Swim at Toronto’s first Nuit Blanche where they opened the swimming pool at Trinity Bellwoods Park for a night swim. “It turned out to have this crazy huge attendance, amazingly successful event,” Pearson said. “We (Pearson and her husband) have a shared interest in different art forms in general,” she said. “My background is in installation and his is more in sound, but we both love art and are inspired by movements of the 20th century that tried in different ways to break out of art as something to look at – to art as an experience.” For more information on Fire on the Water, visit http://fireonthewater2012.wordpress.com

One goal is to address gap in services for people 18 to 35 >>>from page 1 and the work Arrabon House does, though the organization also has another lofty goal in mind. “Our long-term goal is to expand and open a new house,” she said. “There’s a huge gap in services for people in the 18 to 35 age range, and that’s something other agencies we’ve worked with have said as well.” While the group of volunteers was relatively small, they were tireless in trying to get their message out to those in the downtown core. “We really wanted to create awareness of what mental health issues are,” said Saira Batasar,

Arrabon House child and youth worker. “(People) look at people with mental health issues funny and treat them differently.” Arrabon House resident Krystal Whyte, who has a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), also came out to enlist Torontonians to sign postcards and spread information she said she hopes will defuse some of the negative misconceptions surrounding mental health issues. “Being a person who has what’s known as FASD, I’ve always wanted to talk about it because I don’t want to be one of the people who are just talked about by other people,”

she said. Because Whyte’s mother drank while pregnant, parts of Whyte’s brain did not develop fully, which hinders her patience and organizational skills. In the year-plus she has lived there, Whyte said Arrabon House has helped her in various ways. “They’ve helped me with my struggles in school,” she said. “If I have a problem, they can help me one-on-one.” Those looking to support the campaign can do so online via the campaign’s Facebook page at www. facebook.com/StopTheCrazy or on Twitter at @stopthecrazy1

Manufacturers need to create more recyclable packaging

The Parkdale Liberty-Villager is published every Thursday at 100 Tempo Ave., Toronto, ON M2H 2N8, by Toronto Community News, a Division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Our police budget must be discussed in communities

Re: ‘Easy steps for better waste diversion,’ Editorial, Aug. 16. While I agree with the gist of the editorial that we must each do our part to sort our trash properly, I believe we need to take a step back further to the origin of our recyclables. While it may not be an issue for the City of Toronto on its own, all municipalities would benefit from requiring the manufacturers of goods to ensure their products and packaging is recyclable.

L

ike a broken record, the loop that is the Toronto Police Service budget is coming around again. Last Wednesday’s police board meeting has raised the budget spectre once again. Reaction – on both sides – sounds very much like it did last year. The debate between city hall and the police service around how much money it takes to protect the City of Toronto comes up every year. This time, Police Chief Bill Blair has warned there could be layoffs; and the city’s budget chief, Councillor Mike Del Grande, is musing about an indeour view pendent study justifying the about-5,600 officers currently Give residents employed. Wrangling between politia say on where cians and police does nothing to solve the issues faced by dollars are spent communities affected by violence, gangs, guns and drugs. All it does, if anything at all, is create Band-Aid solutions without speaking with those most affected by the problems. Given the spate of gun violence in Toronto recently, we suggest police budgets should not be discussed solely by politicians and police. The conversation must be in the community first. Councillors should seek to engage directly with their constituents on this issue specifically. Only that way will a truer picture emerge of the local impact of the resources currently being applied. Those conversations will generate a pathway for future resource application. The Danzig Street shooting has spurred politicians to hold community forums and town halls. Leaders in the Scarborough community shaken by the violence have also taken up the mantle as well. But the reality is these forums, although very beneficial, go nowhere without continued and consistent interaction between the community and the police. In a perfect world, money would be no object. With civic budget restraint already reflected in communities across the city, how the money spent on the police budget should be scrutinized – just like any other department’s. Frank discussions are needed. The result may be that we find out certain areas of the city may need less of a police presence than others. The result may be that officers need to be re-deployed to other neighbourhoods. Perhaps more initiatives are needed – like the school resource officer program where the community gets to the know police officers. Regardless, police interaction with the community should be more direct and compassionate – and efficient. Giving the community a say will provide a better picture over where those dollars should be spent. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

This may entail an increase in packaging cost that may be passed onto consumers, but the ultimate savings down the line would more than recover those costs. I am prepared to do my part in sorting, but I would hope it would be easier knowing all packaging and products were eventually recyclable. This would ensure the 100 per cent compliance you call for in your editorial. Marc Charbonneau

TTC should remember its riders in new board There’s been a lot of to-ing and fro-ing on the transit file this past year. But as the dust settles on the subwayversus-light-rail battle for the future of transit – the hiring and firing of chief general managers — the prospect of new taxes to pay for new subways, our attention slipped away from a more quotidian matter: the question of governance. It came up earlier this year as Toronto council voted to keep Karen Stintz as chair of the TTC and replace a commission of Mayor Rob Ford loyalists with members from council’s centre and left wings. That shift — a response to the mayor’s engineering of the firing of transit boss Gary Webster — was half the plan. The other half was the introduction of an old idea: citizen members,

THE CITY

appointed by council, would sit on the TTC along with elected officials. This was something Ford wanted to do holus-bolus, but Toronto council went a more moderate route, agreeing to create an 11-member commission with four citizen appointees and seven councillors. In September, Toronto’s Civic Appointment Committee will be making recommendations about who those four citizens should be. Toronto’s City Manager Joe Pennachetti has hired NAFOR Executive Recruiting to pre-select

candidates, and the committee will be looking at their report in September. Hard to say who will be on that list, but in a letter NAFOR has given a sense of the size of the pool – 485 applied – and the criteria they’re using. The most qualified candidates meet some high requirements: they will understand large project management, have experience working for large boards and large companies and will have strong management skills, honed in the public, private or non-profit sectors. If the commission has four of these sorts on board, the politicians will find themselves outclassed in terms of organizational management: municipal politicians, particularly the ones in Toronto, arrive with more populist CVs. They also may find themselves further iso-

lated from the people who matter most in the transit equation: namely, the riders who are navigating an increasingly crowded, expensive and frankly spotty service as they make their way about the city. For the past year and a half, those riders could be excused for feeling a little like pawns in a highlevel political chess game between council and the mayor. It would be wrong to say that riders have been utterly voiceless in this age of Twitter and Facebook; but it would go a long way to righting the imbalance, to have one or two citizen appointees whose major contribution to the debate was in their understanding of the rider’s experience.

JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) opened its gates for the 134th year Aug. 17, with plenty of dignitaries and special guests on hand to celebrate the grand old festival. A long-standing tradition in Toronto, signaling for many a last hurrah before summer ends, this year’s CNE experience promises plenty of old favourites, some new attractions and events and plenty of bacon. “For 134 years, the CNE has been a place of firsts,” said CNE Association president Brian Ashton. “It’s been a place of innovation – people could go to the Better Living Centre and see their first TV, see their first vacuum,” he said. This year, the CNE will also take on a historic bent, standing on the site of the Battle of York, one of the bloodiest battles in the War of 1812. A CNE app will allow visitors to take a self-guided tour through the grounds to learn of some of the area’s history. As has also become tradition, the CNE welcomed the year’s first family, Shannon Ryan and her husband Shawn Tobin, 12-year-old son Austin Tobin and 10-year-old daughter Taylor Tobin. Ryan won

the honour for her family through a radio contest. CNE general manager David Bednar said this year’s Ex will offer something for everyone, from the new NITRO roller coaster to the more relaxing Sky Ride, which carries riders over the exhibition grounds. “The big one’s probably the Sky Ride, which is a $1.5-million piece built specifically for the CNE,” he said. “We’ll be doing some kind of funny stuff like celebrating the 250th anniversary of the sandwich, but also, on the serious side, honouring the War of 1812.” The Ex will feature skating demonstrations from Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue, and Elvis Stojko. The bandshell will host acts ranging from pop star Nick Carter and local indie rockers the Arkells to baby boomer favourites such as Don McLean and Herman’s Hermits. While the rides and shows are certainly a draw, the Ex always makes waves for its food. This year, options include bacon fudge, bacon and nutella sandwiches and baconwrapped deep-fried Mars bars, among other – often healthier – options. The CNE will remain open until Sept. 3.

The Toronto Community News (TCN) building and production facility will be moving down the street this weekend. TCN will move from 100 Tempo Ave. in North York to 175 Gordon Baker Rd., essentially two buildings to the west. The new building will be visible from Hwy. 404, between Steeles and Finch avenues. “It’s a larger, brighter facility, which will allow us to maintain our distribution activities under one roof,” said Metroland Central vice president and TCN publisher Ian Proudfoot. Numbers stay the same

>>>from page 1 to keep them will get a few credit points.” The province’s endorsement of Tory’s plan does not sit well with Marchese, who wants to see Ontario Place remain in public hands instead of sold to private developers. “What Mr. Tory proposed is literally turning over this public space into private hands,” he said. Marchese is concerned more than the recommended 10 to 15 per cent of the land would be repurposed into condo developments. He pointed out condos on the site would be limited in height due to low-flying planes flying over the area and was worried that a larger percentage of the land would go toward residential developments. “As if we need more condominiums in that area,” he said. Marchese said Ontario Place received a $10-million shot in the

arm two years ago and noted that nearly 900,000 visitors attended the venue last year compared to 350,000 in 2010. “By 2015, it would have been profitable,” he said. “Why not continue to improve what was created in 1972?” Chan refuted Marchese’s claims, pointing out Ontario Place attendance has been in decline for years and only received a boost last year because admission was free. “In 2011, it lost $13 million in operations,” he said. “Ontario Place is getting older and older and we’re spending more and more just to keep those buildings standing.” Chan noted attendance has dropped at the venue from more than three million guests per year in its heyday to just more than 300,000 at its lowest point. “The fact of the matter is, Ontario Place is not sustainable,” he said.

Express yourself with COLOUR Are you courageous when it comes to decorating your home? Many of us would like to be as creative as possible but need guidance to venture out from the neutrals – and into something more powerfully beautiful. Colour is the most important tool in the toolbox, say experts in this field, and often add that one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to infuse the home with colour is with paint. People often feel intimated by this type of expression and that’s why so much of our country is beige and offwhite. We need to remember that colour is a great balancer in a space; it’s a juggling act between neutrals, grounding shades, highlight and accent colours. When choosing a paint palette for any room there are four key components to ensure

powerful effects while keeping a harmonious balance: neutrals, which are the beige or creamiest versions of any colour; grounding shades, like blacks, browns and greys; highlights, like the bright white on moldings and window trim; and the all-important saturated pops of colour which add life to any room. You might want your pop of colour to be a powerful accent wall. Then, you can complement it with neutral upholstery and grounding accents in the accessories to balance it all. For additional guidance, inspiration – and even liberation – here are som great tips:

décor accents that are inexpensive. This way, you can always change your mind if you fall in love with a new colour or want to refresh the look of your room.

START WITH A CHIP Use the chip rack at your retailer to find colour families and their complementing shades. A popular way to find an accent colour, for example, is to go a few shades darker in the same family.

Sign a will when buying a home For most people, buying a home is a significant milestone and the biggest purchase of their lifetime. While Canadians protect their residences with home and title insurance, many are not addressing who will inherit what may be their largest asset. A survey of more than 2,000 Canadians revealed that a majority of adults (56 per cent) do not have a signed will. A will is a legal, written document that sets out the person's wishes about how his or her estate should be taken care of and distributed

after death. The absence of a clear, signed will can become a divisive and contentious issue at a time when families are already experiencing grief, and can result in a range of complications, from belongings not going to the person they were intended for, to court battles that cost thousands of dollars. According to the survey results, only 13 per cent of Canadians sign a will when they purchased a home or condo. During the time you are finalizing your deal is the ideal time to speak with a lawyer. Homebuyers already have a

lawyer working on the purchase and should be thinking of having wills and powers of attorney drawn up. Working with a lawyer to create a will can cost as little as internet access for a year and will reduce the risk of relevant issues not being addressed or of a breach of a technical requirement for a valid will. Having a will not only ensures assets and interests are protected now and in the future, it can also bring peace of mind and provide greater assurance for loved ones.

IntelliLink in-car connectivity available on all 2013 Buicks Buick will make its IntelliLink in-car connectivity available on every 2013 model year vehicle. And the brand will help owners get acquainted with the advanced technology with realtime over-the-air help. Designed to be used with two hands on the wheel as often as possible, IntelliLink’s layout was created with an emphasis on minimizing distractions. New features for 2013 integrate more functionality into the system’s voice control commands.

The “More like this” feature uses Gracenote media database technology to identify artist and song titles. For 2013, Gracenote’s album cover art display capability expands to include genre and artist art. To speed the use of IntelliLink and keep the driver’s eyes on the road, a new “Quick Info” icon allows access to popular features, audio info and turn-by-turn navigation. An added “Transfer to Private” icon allows a Bluetooth-paired phone call to be moved off the vehicle’s speakerphone.

Buick has also created a support network for customers who need help familiarizing themselves with new IntelliLink technology. Based in Oshawa, Ontario the Customer Care Centre Infotainment Customer Support Team will provide one-on-one guidance for owners. Dedicated specialists at CCC will be trained to provide customers the quick and thorough support they need. New 2013 Buick models will begin arriving at dealerships later this year.

In a perfect world, school and work hours would run concurrently. But the average school day begins at 9:00 a.m. and continues until 3:00 p.m., while the average work day lasts from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Roughly 80 percent of families in North America have both parents working, and have to make important choices when it comes to after school child care. Here are a few options to consider for the upcoming school year.

tween school and work. Students who carpool may be dropped off early at the driver’s home and stay there after school until their parents get home. In addition, many families have welcomed older relatives back into their homes in light of the struggling economy. In such instances, grandparents or aunts and uncles can look after the kids once school has ended for the day.

AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

SCHOOL-BASED CARE

Some children are enrolled in care centers that watch children before school, bus them to school and then return in the afternoon to pick up the children again. This is one of the more costly options in child care. However, it may be more educationally structured than the care programs provided at school. Students who participate in sports or academic clubs may have an arrangement to stay with a teacher, coach or club administrator until their parents are home

Many schools offer programs both before and after school, many of which are reasonably priced.This helps dual-income families, but may not be practical during earlyrelease days, during teacher planning days or holiday breaks.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS Parents who prefer a different situation than school-based care frequently turn to friends or family members to bridge the gap be-

Welcome

from work. When the decision is made,there are some questions parents should ask before enrollment. • What is the ratio of caregivers to students? • What is the cost of the program? • ow are delayed opening days and early dismissal days handled? Holidays and breaks? • What happens if I arrive late? • What activities will take place? • Is there ample time for homework? • Are caregivers teachers or volunteers? • Are background checks conducted? • Is financial assistance available? • How are emergencies handled? • If my child is absent,do I receive a refund for that day? These are just some of the questions to ask, and parents are encouraged to come up with their own to find the best program for their children.
