The more condos that go up around Stanley Park, in the Niagara neighbourhood, the more it gets used. And that makes it important, TrinitySpadina Councillor Mike Layton said, to keep the park as a good usable space that is well maintained and animated. Stanley Park is a unique city space that is cut through the centre by King Street west. The southern portion is programmed with baseball, tennis and the pool, while the northern portion is more geared to kids and green space for passive use. In addition to that, when the Fort York pedestrian bridge is installed from the Stanley Park extension in the north to Garrison Common in the south, slated for late in 2014, it will create another third section to this already large park, south of Wellington Street West. “It will be on a big incline, but it could provide seating opportunities, or some folks have suggested an orchard, which could be cool,” Layton said. “But there is opportunities there.” There has been a steady push to revitalize Stanley Park and improvements have been happening bit-by-bit during the past few years. An off leash area was installed, a new pool building >>>COMMUNITY, page 2

Creative on Queen brings community to CAMH ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com When Creative on Queen was started, the hope was to bring the Centre for Addiction and Mental Heath (CAMH) together with the community and give clients a platform to share their artistic talents.

Now, in its ninth year, the annual show and sale, held as a community partnership to the Queen West Art Crawl (QWAC), has become exactly what was hoped, said organizer Bharati Singh. Singh, who works in public affairs at CAMH, said Creative on Queen was started as a

means of complementing and participating in the annual QWAC, just down the street in Trinity Bellwoods Park. “We decided, we are part of this community, we wanted to break down stigma, we wanted to open our grounds to the community and host a community fair,” Singh said.

At the time, a lot of the galleries around CAMH were hosting events for the QWAC, and Singh said CAMH decided to do the same. “It was a way of welcoming the community onto our grounds because it wasn’t a welcoming environment before,” >>>CAMH, page 8

Fraser Jackson enters 23rd year with Toronto Symphony Orchestra ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com It might be a stretch to say something small like braces can set the course of your life, but Fraser Jackson, a contrabassoon and utility bassoonist with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO), admits if it wasn’t for orthodontics, he might not be entering his 23rd year with Canada’s premier symphony. Maybe he would have been a French horn player, or something totally separate from the arts, such as a lawyer, Jackson joked. When Jackson was in Grade 9, he had to choose an instrument for music class. “I wanted to play the French horn, but I had braces so I had to choose a woodwind,” Jackson said, explaining that any of the brass instruments would have cut his mouth because of his braces. With that in mind, Jackson said he wanted to choose something a little different, so he settled on the bassoon. “It is so un-cool that it kind of makes it cool,” Jackson said. “Originally I thought I would play the sax, but we weren’t allowed to start on it, so I thought I would play

the bassoon for a year and then the sax,” Jackson said. But Jackson said he really “clicked” with the bassoon. The bassoon has a complex tone, Jackson explained, adding he finds it to be a very expressive instrument. “It is almost close to the sound of a human voice,” Jackson said. “There are a lot overtones and a lot of colour in the sound.” Born in Montreal and raised in Ottawa, Jackson went on to get a music degree from the Eastman School of Music in New York and a masters from the University of Southern California. He worked for a year in Quebec City before coming to the TSO, perhaps one of the most coveted orchestras, he said. Founded in 1922, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra is one of Canada’s major cultural institutions and is internationally recognized as a leading orchestra. “It is one of those funny things; I never thought I would do it for a living, but here I am.” Jackson has lived in Parkdale for the past four years, first renting before purchasing a home north of Queen Street with a detached garage, which he and his wife turned into a dream studio space.

Toronto Symphony Orchestra bassoonist Fraser Jackson takes a break in his home studio recently. Jackson is celebrating his 23rd year with the TSO.

“We looked for quite a while for something like this, with a backyard studio,” Jackson said. His wife, Monique de Margerie, plays the piano and teaches out of the space and even ran a day camp for kids this summer.

Jackson teaches bassoon at the University of Toronto and at the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Glenn Gould School where he was head of winds, brass and percussion from 2002 to 2007. TSO launched its new season

yesterday and will perform more than 100 concerts at Roy Thomson Hall between September and June 2014. “This is a good time for the orchestra. It is sounding really good right now,” Jackson said. “Of the 23 years, this is the best version of the orchestra.” He said he is looking forward to the season and all the guests who come in to play with TSO. “I like the really big symphony pieces that really make the most of the orchestra like Mahler is always great to play,” Jackson said. “This year we are doing a Mahler’s 9th Symphony in April so that is going to be a big event.” He said he also really enjoys the New Creations Festival, which performs new works from contemporary composers, in early March. “I have always liked jazz. I don’t improvise, but I like it, so I really enjoy the pop stuff that we do,” Jackson said of the TSO’s series of concerts that includes celebrated tunes from popular culture including visual performances, classic Broadway hits and timeless tunes.

On Common Ground festival celebrates equinox, peace at Fort York Saturday and Sunday event inspired by the pageantry and historical activity at the fort

ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com The cannons and red coats will be set aside at Fort York this weekend and a different kind of festival takes over the historic grounds. Fort York will be energized this weekend with the On Common Ground festival, a mix of mobile music, site-specific dance, giant puppet theatre, multimedia installations, storytelling, crafts, kid zone, peace zone, green zone and local food, according to organizer Robert Kerr. “It is going to be a great weekend for people to engage with culture, also to engage with community and maybe learn a few things,” said Kerr, supervisor of special events at Fort York National Historic Site. This is the second year for the festival, although Kerr said they took a drastically different approach to programming this year. “We programmed it to reference some of the pageantry and historical activity at the fort. Music is inspired by the marching bands and regimental bands, the Fort York guards, the fife and drum marching through the fort,” he said. “There is a pageantry

and a ceremony about that; on the one hand, there is also this interesting acoustic experience where the sound travels through the fort and reflects off the old stone walls and the buildings.” On Common Ground takes place over an auspicious weekend that encompasses the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21 and the autumnal equinox on Sept. 22. This family friendly festival will celebrate the transition from summer to fall, the harvest and the global quest for peace through a creative exchange of contemporary and traditional arts and culture by a cross-section of Toronto’s diverse cultural community, he said. “What I am trying to do with this is look at the fort as the stage for arts and cultural activities,” Kerr said. “And I am trying to do this in as natural a way as possible without bringing in big stages and sound systems.” Kerr said he wanted to look at mobile music from various cultures and to that end programmed acts such as the Brazilian ensemble Escola de Samba de Toronto, a Cuban project led by Parkdale’s Jane Bunnett; a Baltic street party-influenced group Lemon Bucket Orkestra; a Chinese marching

band; and Amadou Kienou’s West African Tiriba Drums and Dance. “Various things like that, which look at the idea mobile music, informal street party, public engaging carnival-type idea,” Kerr said. There will be Dusk Dances, a curated dance event that brings highquality contemporary and traditional dance to urban public parks, the Clay

and Paper Theatre, which will perform with giant puppets and masks, as well as storytellers, face painting and kite and rocket making. “It is a really great safe space for kids,” Kerr said. “There is no traffic, you are surrounded by the walls so parents can let their kids run around for a bit.” As the festival also marks the

International Day for Peace, there won’t be cannons or muskets firing. “We do want to acknowledge that international quest for peace,” Kerr said. “I think one of the original intentions of the fort was to provide peace and protection... it wasn’t set up as an aggressive imperialistic force.” This free festival takes place Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. “This is definitely for the city at large, but we are interested in reaching out to our neighbours on Fort York Boulevard and down to the Lake Shore, Liberty Village and King Street,” Kerr said. “This is really their backyard.” There will be a farmers’ market on Saturday, which neighbours have been looking forward to, Kerr said. As well there will be a number of community organizations on site such as the David Suzuki Foundation, Amnesty International, Toronto Beekeepers Co-Operative, Peace for Peace and urban agriculture organizations.

ith summer vacations over, students back in school and the establishment of new routines at home, September means busier times for most of us. And with the increased traffic volume on our roads that comes with the fall season, there comes a greater need for vigilance and proper planning for all of us making our way around the city. We know Toronto has traffic congestion challenges. The longest commuting times in the country are in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area, according to a StatsCan report released in late June. Traffic congestion has been identified as a major economic impediment by the Toronto Region Board of Trade, costing billions to the greater Toronto economy. The need for a sustained commitment from all levels of government to funding transit infrastructure is acute. And the discussion about our view what’s happening on our roadin Toronto is not confined Drivers must ways to congestion. There’s safety, too. pack patience, A pair of recent schoolchildren pedestrian deaths, including plan ahead the tragic losses of a 14-year-old North York girl and a five-yearold girl in Scarborough, spurred the Toronto District School Board last week to request chair Chris Bolton to enter into discussions with the city, police and other school boards to talk traffic safety. Trustees have directed that those representatives look at ways to reduce traffic risks to students (an increased use of crossing guards is already one suggestion). That means there’s a lot happening on our roads. So for motorists, trip planning is important. Leave yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Remember, beyond traffic congestion caused by any ongoing roadwork, there are some new capital projects underway in the city as well that will impact travel times. For example, a second tunnel borer machine is about to start digging below Eglinton Avenue West as part of the Eglinton Crosstown light rail project – a project that, once completed, should play a part in alleviating congestion. But while the tunneling lasts, one should expect traffic delays. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with construction projects and road closures. The city has an updated web page detailing road closures and their durations. Check it out at http://bit.ly/1goY61f In the meantime, if you’re heading out on the roads, be alert, practice patience, and plan ahead.

Mayor Ford’s love of campaigning evident Mayor Rob Ford has made a name for himself as a great lover of football, sometimes to the point of distraction. But there is another game that excites nearly as much passion from our mayor and distracts him from his day-to-day duties almost as thoroughly. That would be campaigning. On Monday, Ford found the hustings so distracting he could barely pay attention to questions in a press scrum, held outside his office and just a few feet away from the spot where his staff had set up a television screen continuously looping a video of highlights of the summer of 2013. The mayor finally stopped, transfixed at the slow-motion video of himself getting ready to arm-wrestle wrestlerturned-politician Hulk Hogan at the start of a local comic convention. When asked whether he was in fact campaigning now, with his video and another Ford

david nickle the city Fest in the offing later this week, the mayor was clear: “I’ve never stopped campaigning... If you do, you lose at the polls.” In the strictly practical sense of the word, the mayor was correct: an elected official is being judged from the moment he or she takes office. However, there are strict rules about spending and receiving donations for electoral campaigns outside the campaign period. And the video, produced by a local production/editing company and scored by one of the mayor’s vocally talented staff-members, sure looks like a bit of both. But Ford doesn’t care about these things, and by the evidence, the powers-that-be don’t either. Toronto’s Compliance Audit Committee let the mayor off the hook over a boatload

of questions arising from the way he and his brother conducted the 2010 mayoralty campaign when they were brought forward early in the term. The mayor survived that, just as he survived a conflict of interest ruling that threatened to remove him from office. And as things stand right now, campaigning hard and pushing the rules might be worth the risk. Because as much as the video playing in the office window struggles to maintain a happy narrative, the other narrative – the one surrounding the actual business of governing – is less cheerful. The mayor could well see his subway plans dashed as the realities of financing the Scarborough RT replacement with a subway dash against the October council meeting. The questions surrounding videos and allegations of drug use continue to swirl and those other videos – of Ford at the Taste of the Danforth – give a different sense of the

Summer of Ford. Indeed, the scrum happened just as he left the city’s parks and environment committee, a committee he belongs to ex-officio, but never routinely attends. This time, as a week ago, the mayor came with the express purpose of blocking an attempt to circumvent his budget process, by adding projects and programs back into the budget before he had even had the chance to set a framework. Ford had to block the matter there, because really, he would have no hope of stopping a budgetary coup at council, a body over which he has long ago lost control. Much better to concentrate on arm-wrestling photo ops, picnics in parks and fishing trips. They might not get him reelected, but they certainly seem to be keeping our mayor entertained.

Petition started to improve Liberty Village intersection ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com One intersection in Liberty Village has become so concerning for David Xamin and his neighbours that he has launched a petition to have safety improvements made immediately. Xamin has lived in Liberty Village for the past nine months, just down the street from the intersection of Pirandello and East Liberty streets. “I tend to avoid crossing that section as much as possible now because you just never know what you are going to get,” Xamin said. “You hesitate before walking out there because cars go streaming through there.” Xamin said many of his neighbours echoed his concerns and he felt it was time to try to do something, so he started a petition and see if he

could get some attention paid to the intersection. “It is a matter of time before a pedestrian isn’t being as cautious because they are going to assume cars are going to stop and they don’t,” Xamin said. His petition is directed at area Councillor Mike Layton, Ward 19, and asks him to facilitate better visibility and improved traffic signage at Pirandello and East Liberty streets. Among his concerns is the poor street lighting in the immediate area of the intersection. “At night it is very dark and you can’t really see people crossing and walking in the area,” Xamin said. “So lighting is one of the things that could be immediately improved.” Crosswalks and stop lines road markings aren’t visible and some stop signs are obscured by trees. Liberty Village is in a period of tremendous growth and

construction and Xamin said he understands there are future traffic management plans, but he said something needs to be done immediately to improve the safety of the area. “There are plans and a lot is proposed, but I just think something needs to be done immediately,” he said. “If something changes two years from now, that is great but at the same time how many people are being put in danger in the next couple of years.” Councillor Layton said there are plans to improve the area with a three-way-stop, but it won’t be done until the development on the corner is complete. Xamin hopes to gather as many signatures as possible and then present the petition to councillor Layton.

The City of Toronto is hosting ward-based meetings throughout the fall to assess community needs for affordable and sustainable cultural spaces. These consultations will help provide councillors and those investing in cultural infrastructure with insight into individual wards’ needs and priorities. Residents are invited to attend and offer input about their neighbourhood’s cultural infrastructure. Input on topics such as public participation in cultural activities and accessibility to cultural spaces will help guide potential future investment. The consultation meeting for Ward 14 is on Oct. 19 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Parkdale Library, 1303 Queen St. W. More information about these consultations

is available at www.toronto.ca/ culture/cultural-spaces.htm CANADIAN SHORELINE CLEANUP ◗GREAT

Help clean up Toronto’s shorelines. Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a community initiative taking place on shorelines (fresh and salty) across Canada to address the issue of shoreline litter. Shoreline litter is a serious environmental issue in Canada – and worldwide. Its effects are far-reaching – from entangling and choking wildlife, to being ingested by wild animals, to negatively impacting water quality and cleanliness. The cleanup takes place from Sept. 21 to 29, removing litter anywhere land meets water. The cleanup is a conservation initiative of the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF. Visit http:// ShorelineCleanup.ca

CAMH clients’ creative talents showcased >>>from page 1 Singh said, referring to the massive redevelopment of CAMH, which saw old buildings torn down and replaced with more inclusive buildings and streets, bringing people into the CAMH community. While the annual Queen West Art Crawl is an important way for those living and working on Queen West to get together and celebrate this unique neighbourhood, Creative on Queen is CAMH’s way of introducing people to the CAMH community and showcase the creative talents of those who live with mental health and addictions issues and those who work with marginalized communities. All of the vendors, musicians, poetry readers, buskers and arts are people with lived experience. But that doesn’t diminish the work, Singh said, adding the art featured at Creative on Queen rivals what is seen at the Queen West Art Crawl. “Their art is not subpar, it really does stand on its own,”

Their art is not subpar, it really does stand on its own.

Creative on Queen, designed to bring the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health together with the community, is on tap this weekend.

Singh said. “It is all about empowerment, too. They (participating artists) are so proud of their creations.” What makes Creative on Queen even more interesting, she said, is that since the redevelopment of the Queen West CAMH site, the physical space now fits perfectly the original goal of Creative on Queen, by bringing community and CAMH together. “The demographics are changing here, and I love the

fact that there is a sense of community, our grounds are accessible,” Singh said. More than 60 vendors will be on hand selling paintings, photographs, jewelry, clothing, pottery, baked goods and woodwork. The vendors at Creative on Queen are not charged a fee to participate and keep the profits, Singh said. Creative on Queen takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the CAMH lawn

at Queen Street West and Ossington Avenue. Workman Arts artists will also be participating in the Creative on Queen event and are collaborating with CAMH to showcase live entertainment. In addition, Workman Arts’ “place” exhibition is installed in the pop-up gallery space in the trailer on Queen Street West at Gordon Bell Road. There will also be sidewalk poetry reading performances scheduled during Creative on Queen. Workman Arts provides individuals who have mental illness opportunities to engage in creative activities that develop their artistic strengths in accepting and supportive atmospheres.

Volunteers plant trees at CAMH A team of volunteers from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and TD Fr iends of the Environment Foundation were out in full force planting trees at CAMH’s West Queen West hub. Planters were given an orientation from the Toronto Conservation Authority and then planted 25 trees in Shaw Park, directly across from 80 Workman Way at CAMH last Thursday. The initiative was part of the fourth annual TD Tree Days events, a volunteer program that allows community members to contribute to a greener environment. Throughout September and early October, volunteers will plant another 45,000 trees, native to their environment, at more than 140 events across Canada. Over the last three years, thousands of TD Tree Days volunteers – from Brownies to bankers – have planted more than 80,000 trees in urban environments across Canada.

Welcome to the 11th annual Queen West Art Crawl!

What To Expect At The Queen West Art Crawl This Year:

After 10 years, the Queen West Art Crawl (QWAC) is now a significant part of the Toronto events scene. QWAC has been counted as one of “50 things to do this summer” by Blogto.com and one of Toronto’s “best art events” by the Toronto Star. This year we are thrilled to welcome presenting sponsor BMO Financial Group. Their tremendous support of QWAC and the Toronto arts community is much needed and much appreciated. They are truly having an impact and are helping to build the success of this event—and the community—now and into the future. To keep this programming free, we rely on the generous support of sponsors and the Queen West community. If you see a QWAC donation can, please consider making a donation. Donations support our educational programming and marketing efforts to help promote local artists. You can also donate via Canada Helps or send a cheque to the QWAC office. Donations are eligible for a charitable tax receipt. On behalf of the QWAC team, the board of directors, our generous sponsors, our amazing volunteers and everyone involved in bringing you the Queen West Art Crawl, thanks for visiting and for supporting the Toronto arts community. Suzanne Peters and Craig Hudson Co-Chairs, Board of Directors

Wheelchair relay moves to Ontario Place

Another tiebreaking vote for Ford

ERIN HATFIELD ehatfield@insidetoronto.com

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

The Toronto Wheelchair Relay Challenge, Spinal Cord Injury Ontario’s premier fundraiser, is moving to Ontario Place. “It is a race for people with and without disabilities,” explained Gillian LynneDavies, marketing and communications manager for Spinal Cord Injury Ontario. “So you can come with your own chair or one will be provided for you.” There are 35 teams of eight that race around a track, relay style for a total of six kilometres. T h i s y e a r ’s g o a l i s $100,000. “The beauty of the of the event is that it levels the playing field and shows people that everyone has different levels of abilities,” LynneDavies said. “And in this particular race, if you have a disability it is probably to your advantage.” “A spinal cord injury can happen to anybody at any-

Mayor Rob Ford made an impromptu appearance at the city’s parks and environment committee Monday to vote down motions that would have seen possible service improvements in the 2014 operating budget. It was the second time in a week Ford attended a committee meeting to vote on a motion. The previous Monday, Sept. 9, Ford attended the government management committee to defeat a motion that would have looked at improving wait times for taxpayers calling into the city’s finance department to pay their bills. This week, Ford cast the deciding vote against motions to provide funding for the Riverdale Farm and High Park Zoo, speed up tree pruning and turf maintenance by city workers, and refurbish aging playgrounds across the city. Ford said he came to the

time and it takes on average one and half to three years to recover,” Lynne-Davies said. “Our organization works with people to defy tragedy and build triumph in their lives.” This is the 18th year for the Toronto Wheelchair Relay Challenge, but it is the first year it will be held at Ontario Place.

It used to be held in the Yorkdale Shopping Centre parking lot, but because of construction the event was moved. The Wheelchair relay begins at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22 in Parking Lot 2 at Ontario Place, 955 Lake Shore Blvd. W.

committee meeting to stop “lefties” from putting unaffordable service enhancements into the budget, in advance of the 2014 budget being introduced at budget committee. “We can’t have these lefties spending like drunken sailors,” said Ford outside his office, next to a television showing a video of the mayor’s summer highlights. “They’re reckless. They just don’t care. They have no respect for the taxpayers whatsoever. They never have and they never will. But the day of reckoning’s coming soon.” The motions from the committee came as city departments are presenting the results of a service review, with the intention of generating suggestions that might go to the budget committee. But some councillors have said they want to set budget parameters earlier, and at the next meeting of council want to have as many services as possible on the table.

Pa r k d a l e - H i g h Pa r k Councillor Sarah Doucette asked that the city consider funding the High Park Zoo and the Riverdale Farm, which are currently being funded by donations. She said if the city funded operating costs, then fundraising could go toward repairs and capital costs more effectively. She said the issue will come up again one way or another. “If the mayor hadn’t come to the meeting, our motions would have been dealt with today,” she said. “But this doesn’t eliminate any suggestions. They’ll still come to the budget. All we’re doing here is saying to the budget chief, take these things into consideration.” Pa r k d a l e - H i g h Pa r k Councillor Gord Perks moved a motion to look at refurbishing 30 playgrounds across the city.

we in Ontario treasure our diversity,” said the North York Liberal MPP, who represents the riding of York Centre. The charter proposed by the Parti Quebecois would ban public employees, including police, doctors, nurses, bureaucrats and teachers, from wearing religious symbols at work to reinforce the state’s religious neutrality. That would include outlawing turbans, hijabs, kippas and crucifixes. Kwinter said Ontarians embrace diversity, noting landed immigrants and new-

Memorial plaque and oak tree latest memorial to Jack Layton DANIELA PITEO bsrm@insidetoronto.com Former NDP leader Jack Layton was celebrated over the weekend when people gathered for a plaque unveiling at Withrow Park. Last Saturday, the TorontoDanforth NDP Riding Association unveiled a plaque next to an oak tree planted in memory of Layton. Elected officials, including Craig Scott MP, Peter Tabuns MPP and City Councillors Paula Fletcher and Mary Fragedakis, along with Layton’s widow, Olivia Chow, were all present for the unveiling. Chow said she was honoured to attend the afternoon ceremony where she spoke to a crowd of supporters. “An oak tree is strong, it’s sturdy and I heard it changes colour from green to orange,” Chow said. “An oak tree is such a perfect memorial – with deep roots and spreading branches – and with acorns that mean future growth. “I know that many (people)

were inspired by Jack’s message of hope and optimism and love. I certainly feel the love here today.” Chow, who said she misses her late husband’s charismatic smile most, said Layton was particularly fond of the Logan Street park. “Jack loved this park because it is such a wonderful meeting place for the community,” said Chow. “He loved cycling through here and coming to barbecue here.” Toronto-Danforth MP Craig Scott also spoke about the similarities a strong oak and Mr. Layton share. “Jack was a team builder and he left behind a team, so he lives on,” Scott said.

“He had very deep roots in this community, but a young tree with newly planted roots is a tree that represents the continuation of Jack’s legacy as it grows, the community will continue to grow and he will be a part of it.” While Layton’s memory is held in high esteem amongst his colleagues, it is equally re g a rd e d by t h e m a n y Torontonians he served. “I came out in memory of Jack Layton, who was our city councillor when we moved into the neighborhood and from there our federal representative and of course, the leader of the (NDP),” said Ron McKay. “I came to celebrate the memory of all the things he stood for, that I also hold dear myself, the values of inclusiveness and community, so I just wanted to come down and honour him.” Area resident Paul Gauthier met Layton three decades ago and later joined his campaign. “I met Jack around 1986.

oncologist when I was working for his campaign. I had to go back for treatment and the first thing I knew was I got a get-well card from Jack and Olivia. It brought tears to my eyes.

Two meetings, one held Tuesday, will show the design concepts for a noise wall planned by Metrolinx/ GO Transit. Visit us online at www.parkdalevillager.com for the community’s reaction from Tuesday’s meeting. The walls are proposed to mask the sound of increased diesel train traffic on the Georgetown rail corridor, but have been highly criticized by residents and transit groups who are calling on Metrolinx/ GO Transit to explore “living” green walls. The second meeting is set for tonight from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Metrolinx/ GO transit Presentation Centre, 901 King St. W. The public feedback period runs until Oct. 2. View the concepts online www.gotransit. com/gts. For more information, email gts@gotransit.com or call 416-581-1300

rahul gupta TO in TRANSIT transit (LRT) project, is about to start drilling below Eglinton Avenue West. Measuring 80 metres long, the machine, nicknamed Lea, will begin tunnelling east from Black Creek Drive this week. Like Dennis before it, Lea will dig about 75 metres per week and is expected to get to Eglinton West subway station by spring. Both machines will then be redeployed for additional tunnelling east to Yonge Street. Metrolinx spokesperson Jamie Robinson said residents living along Eglinton Avenue West should continue to expect road and lane closures while the tunneling lasts.

Metrolinx kicks off study for a downtown relief subway line RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com Metrolinx will undertake its own study on a potential downtown relief subway line intended to ease congestion on existing routes. Leslie Woo from the regional transit planning agency outlined the parameters of the study intended to address how the planned line could relieve overcrowding on the city’s overburdened subway network, particularly along Yonge-UniversitySpadina, which is projected to be at maximum operational capacity by 2031. “If we don’t address this issue, the congestion has the capacity to negatively effect the customer experience, as well as ridership growth throughout the region,” said Woo during a presentation to Metrolinx’s board of directors last week.

dent of planning, policy and innovation, and regarded as the chief architect of the Big Move transit expansion plan, said the study’s core focus would be examining options for the line and how to potentially integrate GO transit into planning. Metrolinx is already collaborating with the TTC, the city’s planning department and York Region on similar relief line studies. The TTC has already released three possible alignments and costing scenarios for a relief subway line. As part of the strategy, a preliminary public consultation is

planned for this fall, with its findings to be presented to the board in the spring. Even though a relief subway line, also known as a downtown relief line, would be part of the existing TTC network, Woo said it was important to determine how it could be employed to address congestion for GO, which operates a regional service out of Union Station. “We also need to understand what (a relief line) could do for Union Station and GO Transit’s service capacity, and what the time line would be for introducing these improvements,” she said. Metrolinx has already listed a future relief subway line as a priority for construction within 15 years, with the costs coming from revenues raised by dedicated transit taxes.

CONSUMER FEATURE

Solarski Pharmacy and Guardian Drugs expand services in Roncesvalles Solarski Pharmacy is a staple in the Roncesvalles community. Since the 1950s, the pharmacy located at 149 Roncesvalles, has always provided high quality and trusted health care for loyal customers. Today, the pharmacy is expanding it’s trusted services under the ownership of Andrew Ing. Andrew is an experienced pharmacist dedicated to offering customers new, and exciting medical care to help treat more common alignments like diabetes and immobility. Andrew is in the process of transforming Solarski Pharmacy into a home health care destination for peo-

ple who have trouble with daily mobility and require assistance at home. Walkers, lift chairs, electric scooters and massage chairs will provide relief at affordable prices. New mothers can purchase Medela breast pumps as well as organic baby food in the near future. A brand new fitting room provides a private space to fit people with compression stockings to alleviate circulation problems. Trained staff are on hand to help with the products and assist with any questions. The pharmacy is taking on a more personal approach to meet the individual needs of customers by introducing home medication manage-

ment service. The pharmacist will go into the homes of customers who are bed ridden or unable to make it to the pharmacy. They will help educate care givers on proper drug dispersion, possible side effects and medication management, until the patient is better. Customers are also encouraged to visit the pharmacist in the pharmacy’s consultation room for advice and answers to their medical questions. To make room for the home health care products and medication management services, Andrew has moved Solarski Pharmacy’s post office down the street to Guardian Drugs at 137

Roncesvalles. Guardian Drugs is also going through a transformation to offer elevated service in all areas of your daily pharmaceutical needs including prescription, and health and beauty needs. The pharmacy houses a medical centre as well as a walk in clinic for faster service. Compounding, diabetic management and nutritional consultations are also available at Guardian Drugs. All renovations will be completed in September. Andrew thanks you for your patience and invites you to experience the new elevated services at both Solarski Pharmacy and Guardian Drugs.
