RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com Work on a provincial study examining how to electrify a future rail connection to the airport is proceeding on schedule, said a Metrolinx spokesperson Monday. Karen Pitre said the provincial transit planning agency is making progress on a provincial environmental assessment (EA) examining how to best convert the Union Pearson (UP) Express air rail link from diesel to electric. Currently under construction, the link will be the city’s first fixed rapid transit connection between Pearson International Airport and Union Station when it comes online as of the 2015 Toronto Pan American Games. While the study won’t be completed until 2014, preliminary design work on UP is continuing on potential industrial locations along the Kitchener GO rail corridor for transformer and switching stations, said Pitre. “We’re making progress and we are at the point where we have enough information for people to understand the nature of the project,” said Pitre, Metrolinx’s executive director for electrification. “We have to deal with hydro and utility providers, as well as >>MORE, page 8

Dundas West Fest: 18-month-old Daphne Ali Grace Barton found a little bucket to make bubbles most interesting. The inaugural Dundas West Fest, which stretched from Lansdowne to Ossington Avenue, took place Saturday.

Proposed Sorauren development heads to OMB ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com There was no middle ground to be found between the community and the developer of a proposed Sorauren Avenue condo, so talks have stopped and the proposal is headed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). When a group of Roncesvalles Village residents saw the plans

for a condo at 383 Sorauren Ave. at a community meeting last February they were not pleased. But, on the advice of the councillor for the area, Gord Perks, a working group, with representatives from the area, neighbourhood associations, and people with expertise, was set up to try to work through some of the concerns and come up with something agreeable for

the community and the developer, Gairloch Developments and CentreStone. Despite an amicable beginning, the discussions didn’t get far in addressing the concerns raised by the community and as a result the working group has been dissolved. The working group met two times with Councillor Perks, the developer and city planners, but there was no resolution to

concerns about: the distance between the proposed building and Robert Watson Lofts, shadow and skylight concerns, visitor parking and the height of the building. “The community working group met and the developer didn’t move so I called a halt to the process,” Perks explained. The developer came back to the councillor and he set up >>DEVELOPMENT, page 18

ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com Inside the condos in Liberty Village are incredibly creative people, artists and people who appreciate art and unique things, said Nadia Lloyd. And this weekend, Lloyd hopes to draw them all out to the first Liberty Village Art Crawl (LVAC). An artist herself, Lloyd came to painting later in her life. She had previously studied journalism and then fitness. She ran a fitness studio in East York, which she sold in 2010. It was then, at the age of 35 that she started painting. “All of a sudden I had all of this free time so I started painting and it became an obsession and a passion,” Lloyd said. Friends and family encouraged her and helped build her confidence and within a year she was selling her work at group shows and outdoor art exhibits. She creates abstract paintings, largely using acrylic paints and said, even though she is still emerging as an artist, she has found much support and success in her com-

munity. “Liberty Village has received my artwork so well,” Lloyd said. “I get a ton of commissions... that is really what fed the idea that an art show would do well in Liberty Village. She was motivated by three things, the first being a resident of Liberty Village and knowing her neighbours, she wanted to bring great artists to the community and have them exhibit for the residents. Secondly she was motivated to put together a group of emerging and established artists. “I love to give the opportunity to other young, creative, talented artists to exhibit their work and get feedback,” she said. Finally it was her entrepreneurial spirit that led her to create the show. “I love to materialize my ideas,” she said. Many of the artists are coming in from outside the neighbourhood, largely, Lloyd said, because of the tight timeline, which meant many artists were already booked elsewhere. But, Lloyd said she hopes future shows will draw on more artists from Liberty Village.

Nadia Lloyd, an artist from Liberty Village, has organized the first Liberty Village Art Crawl, tomorrow and Saturday.

There are about 40 artists working in a variety of mediums: painters, photographers, jewelry makers,

fashion designers and even pet accessories. The show will also cater to a lesser

known population of Liberty Village – children. Some, Lloyd said, have the mistaken impression that Liberty Village is a hamlet without many children, but she said if you spend any time there, you will quickly learn there are plenty of children. Lloyd herself has a two-year-old son. So she decided to organize a kids zone for the art crawl. The LVAC will be held over two days in two locations in order to connect with the commercial sector in the west and residential area in the east of Liberty Village. Tomorrow, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., the LVAC will be set up at the south west end of Lamport Stadium Park off Liberty St., between Fraser and Jefferson avenues. Then on Saturday, the market will move to Liberty Village Park at 70 East Liberty St. from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Lloyd is planning on organizing a second show for mid September and she hopes the LVAC will become a yearly event.

You’ve heard them on TV, now see them live: Fast Romantics ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com Fast Romantics may have garnered a good portion of their fans through their songs being played on television, but the band says to see them live could turn any TV watcher into a live music lover. “I think they would start going to more Fast Romantics shows and watching less One Tree Hill,” said front man Matthew Angus. Their Canadian indie-rock music has found its way onto many TV shows and films, including Shameless, Breaking In, Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill. “We are sort of a mix between jangly-pop and emotional content. I think we are a good mix so maybe it works with dramatic type stuff,” Angus said.

But, that passion and emotion that translates so well to TV is only exemplified live, said bassist Jeffrey Lewis. “It is raw and there is an energy there,” said Lewis. “It is way better live. We deliver it with a bit more authority. “At the end of the day, when we play live we are trying to recreate what we did on the records, but make it even better and step it up a notch,” Lewis said. Toronto audiences will have a chance to catch the band’s next show at Sneaky Dees on College Street on June 15 as part of Toronto’s North by Northeast Festivals and Conference (NXNE). This will be the band’s fifth year playing the annual NXNE festival, which hosts 1,000 bands at venues across the city. “The crowds at this festival are

always the best,” Angus said. “There is still a focus on new music at NXNE and it seems like people who go to NXNE are hungry to see new bands.” Angus said. Fast Romantics, originally from Calgary, put out their first album, The Fast Romantics, in 2009 and an EP called KidCutter in 2010. They will launch the pre-sale for their second full-length album Afterlife Blues this summer and the band has a tour planned for this fall across Canada and into the United States.

T

ransit funding should be more than just buses, subways and GO trains. Transportation is a more accurate way to look at getting around the Greater Toronto Area. The future of the Gardiner Expressway is being debated – again. With the Environmental Assessment (EA) by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto now back on the table, a public forum is being held today, the day after the two parties held a media briefing to discuss the EA. The future of the Gardiner comes up every few years, but nothing concrete has ever comes of these discussions. The long-term rehabilitation of the Gardiner is not in question – that needs to happen. However, what exactly our view does that mean, and how is a city like Toronto going to Nothing has handle it? The entire length of the come of past decaying expressway will evenGardiner talks tually come up for debate, but today’s forum focuses on the eastern portion from Jarvis Street to the Don Valley Parkway (DVP). We believe front-and-centre at this discussion should be funding. Not just the $505 million approved by council to rehabilitate the Gardiner, but how will we maintain whatever we decide to do with it – keep it standing, bury it under Lake Shore Boulevard or dismantle it all together? Whatever the decision, funding is rarely mentioned – like the public transit discussion, everyone is concerned about today, not the future. Despite the obvious connection between public transit and the highways, expressways and parkways, no one is discussing how they should work together. If there is an effort out there to come up with a cohesive transportation plan, we’re not seeing it. Within the transit funding tools supported by Metrolinx to pay for the province’s Big Move plan, there should also be funding for our roads and highways. A regional sales tax, development charges, parking space levies, and a fuel tax are on the table to fund transit. Yet, something like highway tolls to help maintain the Gardiner is not being discussed. Or, at the end of the day, maybe we should hand over the Gardiner to the province to include in its transportation portfolio together with the 400 series highways. And while we’re at it, toss in the DVP.

Letter

Ford dismissal of Councillor Robinson Reader an attempt by mayor to show strength will pay david nickle for a better commute Firing Councillor Jaye Robinson from his executive committee may have been the most comprehensible thing Rob Ford has done in the past few weeks as mayor. That is not to say that firing Robinson was a nice or city-building thing to do. But from the point of view of a mayor trying to hold onto power in an environment where its levers are increasingly eluding him, it makes sense. Punishing the first member of his executive committee to actively criticize his bungled handling of the crack video controversy sends a message. It establishes a certain kind of strength. Robinson was outspoken, as the mayor continued to refuse to answer the questions arising from the video allegedly showing him smoking crack cocaine. She said he needed to answer those questions.

the city

She said he shouldn’t be allowing his brother to speak for him. And she said he needed to take time away from city hall to deal with whatever issues he might have because until he does, his presence is turning the city into a train wreck. Personal

Those are hard things to say. They are not the sorts of things a member of a strong mayor’s team says. Weighing in on that mayor’s leadership is not the same thing as weighing in on the mayor’s decision to support a casino. It’s personal. If it’s going to be “business as usual,” as the mayor continually claims, then the mayor’s got to clean house.

No choice. So yes, Ford’s decision was understandable from the point of view of raw power politics. The funny thing about power politics, though, is that at a point what’s good for the leader is not good for the team. Robinson said hard things. She also said true things. Removing Robinson from the Executive Committee has another impact on governance. For the first time, the most powerful committee at city hall has not a single woman at the table. That is a giant step backwards, whether her removal was an intentionally gendered decision, or the lack of women candidates to replace her is an unavoidably gendered failure. And that is all too comprehensible.

Re: ‘Bit Move...Big Money,’ Special Report, May 30. The projected costs of an integrated regional transit system proposed by Metrolinx is far less than the estimated $1,600 per household cost for the gridlock that has the GTA stuck in traffic. It’s unfair to characterize Metrolinx as squeezing money out of taxpayers as Thursday’s front page and inside political cartoon did. Funding transit contributes to better access, cleaner air and a smoother commute for everyone. I’ll pay for that. Alice Schuda

Report recommends capping concentration of bars City planners outline number of amendments to the zoning bylaw along Queen Street West ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com The report looking into how to curb the influx and impact of bars and restaurants in Parkdale is complete. City planners have finished the Queen Street West Restaurant Study, which outlines a number of amendments to the zoning bylaw in oder to balance the interests of area residents and businesses and address concerns related to the concentration of restaurants and bars, including some that function more like night clubs, along Queen Street West, between Roncesvalles Avenue and Dufferin Street. Staff recommends a restaurant seating area be limited to 200 square metres and that only one restaurant be permitted within a single building. The report also recommends a prohibition of rooftop and rear-yard patios and that restaurants only be permitted

The Queen Street West Restaurant Study outlines a number of zoning bylaw amendments that seek to address concerns related to the concentration of restaurants and bars along Queen Street West between Roncesvalles and Dufferin.

on the ground floor level of buildings. But perhaps the most substantial of the recommendations is a concentration bylaw to limit the number of restaurants in the study area to 25 per cent. That would mean only a limited number of restaurants would be permitted on a single block — if the city is allowed to, that is. “Staff continue to explore ways to limit the concentration of licensed restaurants themselves, whether it be through placing a cap on

the overall licensed seating capacity or the numbers of licensed restaurants. The first step in this process would be to introduce ‘licensed eating establishment’ as a defined term in the zoning bylaw. To this end, staff have had and continue to have extensive discussions with city legal, Toronto Building, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission and Municipal Licensing and Standards staff to explore options,” the report reads. The influx of restaurants and bars on the western edge

of Queen Street has placed the diversity of businesses that serve local residents at risk, said Councillor Gord Perks. Perks previously explained that sometimes bars and restaurants, which can make a lot of money, increase an area’s average rent and push other services and stores out. The report states the aim of the suggested zoning amendments are to limit the overall impacts of restaurants on the adjacent residential and commercial uses, while still allowing opportunities for new

restaurants and related uses to open and for the expansion of existing uses. In August 2010, council directed city planning staff to undertake the study to try to mitigate some of the negative impacts due to the high concentration of restaurants and bars. It was while this report was being completed that the city instituted an Interim Control Bylaw that put a one-year freeze on any new bars or restaurants opening on Queen Street West in Parkdale.

The moratorium was the subject of a number of heated community meetings as well as an Ontario Municipal Board challenge, which was later dropped. The report will be debated at the June 18 meeting of Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC). The staff report, if approved by TEYCC, will then be submitted to the Toronto City Council meeting July 16. If council approves it the new bylaw will come into force in 20 days, unless it is appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board. If that happens the Interim Control Bylaw stays in place until the appeals are finished. The full report can be seen at http://app.toronto.ca/ tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2013.TE25.3 Residents wishing to comment on the report are asked to contact Rosalind Dyers, committee administrator, 416392-7033; teycc@toronto.ca

When it was announced that Metrolinx was planning to run trucks through Parkdale to a construction staging area near Sorauren Park, residents were particularly concerned about trucks using the small, tight streets of Rideau, Macdonell and Wabash avenues. It took a great deal of work on the part of the community, Parkdale-High Park Councilor Gord Perks and his staff, but meetings and conversations with Metrolinx facilitated a new plan for truck traffic. “Because the community stood up (Metrolinx) found another way to deal with it and that is a good result for

the whole Roncesvalles and Macdonell community,” Perks said. In a letter to the community Metrolinx said, “We have been able to secure alternate truck haul routes to enter and exit the rail corridor at Queen Street West and Sudbury Street. We will also have a corridor exit route through Shirley Street. As a result, we will not be using Rideau, Macdonell and Wabash avenues as truck access routes.” Metrolinx will still use 40 Wabash Avenue, a vacant parcel of land adjacent to Sorauren Park, to store

materials and equipment as originally planned. “Construction trucks will enter and exit the storage site from the corridor side and not in front of homes on these streets,” the letter reads. “We also continue to explore other access points which we will require for subsequent phases of the project.” Metrolinx requires access on the southwest side of the rail corridor to complete grading and signal work related to the Georgetown South (GTS) Project and the Union Pearson Express. The work should be complete by 2014. – Erin Hatfield

>>>from page 1 the airport,” she said during a public drop-in session about the project at Metro Hall June 10. “We’re dealing with all those fronts and I think we’re doing a pretty good job moving things forward.” The update was part of four meetings Metrolinx has organized for UP consultations, which will run as an express business class train service on the GO Kitchener rail corridor. Other events were scheduled for Mimico, Mount Dennis and Mississauga near the airport. Davenport city councillor Ana Bailao attended the Metro Hall event, where enlarged presentation slides were set up with technical information regarding the project and several Metrolinx officials were on hand to speak in more detail about

the work. Bailao, who supported a city council resolution last year for the immediate electrification of the air rail link, said she was disappointed no meetings were planned this time for Bloor West, where residential opposition to UP is high. “For many years people have called for electrification so I think there’s a step in the right direction with the EA,” said Bailao. “However, the next step is taking a long time to happen and I am certainly hoping sooner rather than later the provincial government comes out with a firm date for building, rather than planning, electrification.” Pitre promised more public consultations but cautioned it would be difficult to visit every neighbourhood along

the rail corridor as the EA continues. “I’m pretty sure we’re going to make more people unhappy depending on what neighbourhood we pick, but we’re trying to spread it out to make sure people don’t have to travel too far,” said Pitre. No date has been set for electric conversion of UP, and the provincial ministry of transportation has been firm on initially running diesel trains along the link. Metrolinx has listed electrification as a priority transit project with 2017 a preferred date for completion. No final costs for the project will be known until the results of the EA are known For more info on electrification, visit www.gotransit. com/electrification/en/ default.aspx

Supporters and MP launch petition campaign to protect Humber River LISA RAINFORD lrainford@insidetoronto.com One of Madeleine McDowell’s earliest memories is canoeing on the Humber River alongside her parents, watching the turtles and great blue herons, among many other creatures that call the heritage waterway home. Aboriginal peoples frequented the area for 10,000 years, said the renowned Humber River historian and naturalist. In fact, McDowell herself was named for a French Canadian settler, Madeleine de Verchères, a 14-year-old girl deemed a hero for thwarting a raid on Fort Verchères on the shore of the Saint Lawrence River. “I will go anywhere for this river,” McDowell said standing in Etienne Brule Park, alongside the Humber, on Saturday, June 8. “I love it. It’s the essence of what this country is.” McDowell joined ParkdaleHigh Park MP Peggy Nash and Parkdale-High Park Councillor Sarah Doucette, with Mike

Mattos of the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to launch a local campaign to protect the Humber River on the eve of Canada Rivers Day, Sunday, June 9. Nash is encouraging everyone as part of the ‘Respect Our River’ campaign to sign petitions calling on the federal government to adopt Private Member’s Bill C-502, which would ensure the entire river is protected. The bill that Nash is working on in collaboration with York-South Weston MPP Mike Sullivan, would act to amend the ‘Navigable Waters Protection Act (Humber River).’ “An urban river in Canada’s largest city needs safeguards so that everyone can enjoy it – whether you are hiking, exploring or canoeing,” said Nash, who will be going door-to-door speaking to her constituents and gathering signatures. Every 25 signatures will be presented in the House of Commons, Nash said. Bill C-105 would reinstate the

Humber to the Navigable Waters Protection Act. “We believe it was a mistake that the river was not included,” she said. The act was once considered a model for environmental protection. Introduced in 1882 by the government of Sir John A. Macdonald, it provides a process for interfering with the public’s common law rights to navigation by granting approvals and settling conditions for works on navigable waters. After the Conservatives replaced the law with a newer one, fewer than two per cent of Canadian waterways are now protected, Nash said. Recreational fishers, cottagers and eco-tourists are among those who will be impacted by the change. “Once we make people aware, we hope public pressure will have an effect,” she said. “I’m hopeful MPs from all parties can come together on this.” The Humber River is an important part of many Parkdale-High Park residents,

pointed out Doucette. “On s u m m e r d a y s, I brought my children here. It means so much to people who want to get out,” she said. “It’s vital, we must protect our river.” While Saturday was the first day of the campaign, Bill C-105 was announced a month ago.

City continuing its Development proposal is 11-storey condo study of decongestants We all still felt the The city has launched the next phase of an ongoing public consultation seeking residential feedback on future transit priorities. Over 30,000 people weighed in during the first phase of Feeling Congested earlier in the year. This time around, the campaign, conceived by chief city planner Jennifer Keesmaat to gain a

better sense of transit issues, will focus on measuring support for specific projects. To that end, Keesmaat and the city planning department have compiled a list of pre-existing unfunded rapid transit proposals, from subways and light rail to busdedicated lanes. The full list is available at www.feelingcongested.ca

>>>from page 1 another meeting of the working group at the end of May. “We all still felt the concerns hadn’t been met,” Perks explained, adding it was then the working group was dissolved. “My understanding is the developer is going to appeal to the OMB, which they are within their right to do,” Perks said. Given that appeal, Perks

concerns hadn’t been met.

– Councillor Gord Perks

said city planning staff will write a report on the development requesting direction from council to go to the OMB and represent the city’s interests. “The good thing is, we all

talked about it as a neighbourhood and decided there was no agreement to be met,” Perks said. Perks often facilitates setting up working groups to meet with developers and try to work out issues between the community and the developers. He said on occasion these working groups do hit a wall in discussions and dissolve. The proposed develop-

ment, at Sorauren Avenue and Dundas Street West, is an 11-storey condo building with 165 units with an average size of 700 square feet. There is also one large non-residential unit on the first floor. City Planning will review the application submitted and respond with a staff report to Toronto and East York Community Council by late 2013.

WOW

– City councillor Adam Vaughan

and the Ontario Municipal Board, so the developer is now looking for the zoning amendments required from City Council to move the project forward. The developer needs amendments to, among other things, increase the commercial density of the site and the height. Lynda Macdonald, the planning manager for the west section of the city, told the audience that planners are interested in hearing the concerns of the residents and that no decision has yet been made on the matter. Planners will complete a report on the proposal, which they anticipate to be complete by the end of 2013. If RioCan’s request for a zoning change is rejected by the city, it can still appeal the decision at the Ontario Municipal Board. A second consultation meeting has been set for July 9, 7 p.m. at City Hall Council Chambers.

This was evidenced when Dominique Russell of Friends of Kensington Market presented a petition to “Save Kensington” she started against the development with nearly 70,000 signatures. “If Kensington Market is hurt, if it bleeds one drop of blood, it’s on your good name,” said Toronto City Councillor for Ward 20 Adam Vaughan, who is a resident of Ward 19, where the development is located. “This is one of the most precious, prestigious, wonderful neighbourhoods on the continent. To damage it is to damage the soul of Toronto.” The councillor for Ward 19, Mike Layton, also said the development must be stopped in order to maintain the diversity of small businesses in the area. The crowd also turned its criticism to the city planning staff, one resident taking to the microphone and saying, to much applause, that they were the root problem with the issue. “We have a planner problem in the City of Toronto,” he said. “The politicians need to decide the planning department isn’t in a position to do an adequate evaluation.” In 2012, variances requested for the development were rejected by the city

Residents crammed into the sanctuary of College Street United Church last Thursday. They brought banners that read “No Walmart, No Big Box”, hand written signs that said simply “NO” and pages of notes with personal reflections to share about a proposed development at College and Bathurst streets. They filled every seat in every pew and then overflowed into the church foyer. When no more could be squeezed in, the City of Toronto had to turn residents away, promising them another meeting to speak their minds. RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust wants to build on the parcel of land on the southwest corner of Bathurst and College streets, comprised of the addresses 410 to 446 Bathurst St. Its application is for a building with three floors, 12,000 square metres and 300 underground parking spaces. A tentative lease has been signed with Walmart to occupy the top two floors, while discussions have taken place with a number of businesses to occupy the 10 individual street-front stores on the ground floor. Mark Noskiewicz, the lawyer who spoke on behalf of RioCan, said the developer acknowledges the possible Walmart tenancy has sparked some controversy. The dozens of people who lined up at the microphone to voice their comments all spoke against the development and with the Walmart tenancy. They raised issues with traffic, the noise from trucks delivering goods, the style of the building, Walmart’s business practices, the impact of a building of this nature to neighbours and the threat to area businesses, in particular those in adjacent Kensington Market.

PUBLIC MEETING ON ◗Residents GARDINER THURSDAY will get a chance to sound off on the future of the Gardiner Expressway during a public meeting this week. Organized by the city and Waterfront Toronto, the event will mark the first opportunity for public feedback since the resumption of an environmental assessment (EA) examining potential long term options for the eastern portion of the Gardiner and Lake Shore Boulevard. Cancelled shortly after Rob

Ford’s mayoral victory, the EA was resurrected earlier this year following a majority vote by city council. City engineers warn the Gardiner will become unusable in less than a decade if no action is taken. The meeting is Thursday, June 13, 6 p.m., inside the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Visit www.gardinereast.ca SEPARATED BIKE LANES OFFICIALLY OPENED The City of Toronto officially

����� ����� TO �� TRANSIT opened its first separated bicycle track on Sherbourne Street between Bloor Street and King Street Monday It is the first phase of a 14-kilometre network of cycle tracks planned for the downtown area over the next few years. The Sherbourne cycle track has new features that distinguish it from the city’s painted

bicycle lanes, including: • buses don’t stop in the cycle track – the cycle track is raised to sidewalk level at bus stops to provide accessible passenger loading; • green-coloured bike boxes that provide a safe area for cyclists to wait while making a left turn have been put in place; • parking next to the bicycle lane has been removed and lay-bys have been provided at six key locations to facilitate pickup/drop-off activity and commercial deliveries.

SUBWAY PLATFORMS ◗Subway-riding JOIN NXNE FESTIVAL music lovers checking out the North by Northeast (NXNE) festival will have the pleasure of a video art exhibition this year.

Subway screens will showcase a rotating selection of 30-second silent video clips on a variety of urban and otherworldly themes.
