World Cup: catch all the action T

he World Cup begins today in Brazil, and fans across Toronto are preparing to wave their flags as they cheer on their favourite teams. Other than being in Brazil for this year’s world championship of soccer, which runs from June 12 to July 13, Toronto is probably the best place in the world for fans to catch the action. And our newspapers and our special World Cup Toronto website at www. are the best places for coverage on the tournament in our city. Here’s how it works: • Enter and you will see the flags of all 32 teams taking part. Click

on the flag of your favourite country. • Now on your country’s site, you can see stories on the best places in the Greater Toronto Area to catch events linked to the team, stories on the teams, news stories and ultimately viewers’ guides about the World Cup in general. • There are recipes from all 32 countries for those interested in hosting a party, or just like the idea of trying different foods. Other stories will celebrate the many cultures who enjoy the World Cup. • We have a number of bloggers writing about the teams they are following. The World Cup starts June 12 with a game between host Brazil and

Croatia at 4 p.m. (EST) in Sao Paulo. There are 32 teams taking part in this year’s World Cup, broken up into eight groups of four. After playing each other in group play between June 12 and 26, the top two teams in each group will advance to the Round of 16 which begins June 28. Many Toronto neighbourhoods are known as gathering places for fans of certain countries to watch their teams’ games. In Toronto, these areas include Little Italy, Little Portugal, Koreatown, Corso Italia, and Greektown on the Danforth to name a few. See our story on the eight great places to watch a

>>>from page 1 who was born at St. Joe’s, was known for her sense of humour and passion for helping others. “It exceeded our expectations,” said organizer and Whelan’s aunt, Mary Anne De Monte Whelan. “Everyone was pretty happy.” “Lauren was a quiet soul. She was a loving girl,” De Monte Whelan said. “Very smart, very thoughtful. She was an excellent baseball player, an umpire and skier.” A lifelong Bloor West Village resident, De Monte Whelan wanted to support her local hospital and reached out to her neighbour Roberta Lum, the founder of St. Joe’s Plate. “It was a very successful event. It reached a lot of people,” De Monte Whelan said. “It was important to

have a cause that resonated with people. People want to talk about (mental illness).” That’s what the two discovered while raising awareness and selling tickets for the event. “People said, ‘You’re so courageous. Thank you for doing this,’” De Monte Whelan said. “What we learned is, everyone has a story about mental illness. Everyone is affected by it.” Mental health care is an issue that is so prevalent in our society, yet often “overlooked and underfunded,” said Dr. Jose Silveira, chief of psychiatry. Whelan’s family hopes her story will allow others to come forward, to feel safe, and know they are not alone. Help is available. Learn more about her story from her mother at heMq-RyU1i0
