HoliDay SPecial

Celebrating the holidays in a ‘uniquely Canadian way’ In Toronto, people make room for their neighbour’s cultural celebrations DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com There’s something different about the window display at the Hudson’s Bay Company flagship store at Yonge and Queen Streets this holiday season. Gone are the animated Christmas carollers, the elves and the reindeer trappings of Christmas. In their place? The Aurora Borealis; owls and geese and squirrels and bears, animal denizens of a wintery “enchanted forest” that speaks more to the Canadian winter than the Christian holiday that’s among those celebrated in December. A year ago and a border south of the Bay, a decision to step back from Christmas in favour of wintery magic might have gotten a lot of flak from Christians and other traditionalists who see a war against the holiday in the colour of Starbucks coffee cups and the use of the greeting “happy holidays”

rather than Merry Christmas. This year? With Stephen Bannon, the head of the right-wing, hate-spinning website Breitbart. com at the right hand of president-elect Donald Trump, whatever bloom there was on the rose of Christian-centric, exclusive celebration this season has surely faded. That goes doubly so in Toronto - one of the most multicultural and multi-religious cities in the world - where the deChristmasing of the Bay raised barely an eyebrow. “This isn’t a bad year for us to be talking about the uniquely Canadian way of celebrating Christmas,” says Toronto city councillor Joe Mihevc, who came to politics by way of divinity studies. Mihevc represents a typically diverse ward (Ward 21 - St. Paul’s) in a diverse city, and he holds his communities up as a model of accommodation. While the law of the land turns Christmas - that being the explicit celebration of the birth of Christ - into a paid, nearly universal holiday, Mihevc says that the many faiths practiced in the communities he represents find ways to celebrate. “At the Wychwood Barns, there’s a Christmas thing, a Hanukkah thing, a Kwanzaa thing,” he says.

David Nickle/Metroland

The Hudson’s Bay Company’s window displays at Yonge and Queen streets are featuring a winter theme this year – a break in tradition from their usual Christmas theme. “It’s let’s celebrate and have fun with it. It’s not a way of defining your religious team as differentiated from other religious teams.” In Scarborough, United Church Minister Gretta Vosper takes that ethos a step further. Vosper, an avowed atheist, is battling a move by the church to defrock her for her religious views. The matter is currently decided against her, subject to an appeal. The West Hill United Church where she officiates until that is heard offers a “longest night” service that coincides with the equinox - the shortest day of the year, Dec. 21. The congregation there focuses on the communal elements of the season -

extinguishing candles to represent regrets, and lighting candles to illuminate hope. “It’s a service that doesn’t use scriptural text, but touches the primal elements of all traditions,” she says. “What we do is, the lowest common denominator of what people of good will can agree on. That’s what we build on.” Vosper’s God-absent view may be an outlier in a season that gathers many around spiritual symbols, but even the devout can see the value in inclusivity. Rev. Rachel Kessler left her parish in midtown Toronto last year to become chaplain at Kenyon College in Ohio. The Episcopal college’s stu-

dent body is diverse, with students practicing Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and pagan religions, as well as many who don’t worship at all. “The way we have been striving to approach spiritual life here is, how do we affirm the religious identity of the people in our community and support them fully, in our own identity and making space for one another’s identity?” she asks. Making that space, Kessler acknowledges, is work. “Forming a true interfaith relationship should cost me something,” she says. “If that cost is I say ‘happy holidays’ to Muslim or Jewish students,

or a pagan student who doesn’t want to celebrate Christmas - well, that’s a pretty low cost for me.” Kessler would, in fact, be willing to pay more. “I want to scrap Christmas as a paid holiday entirely,” she said. “I think we should all celebrate as a secular society as a winter holiday. But in my religious community, I would like to celebrate my festival. The whole festival of the light of God, coming into the world.” As for the Bay? When asked for comment on the new wintry display, Bay spokesperson Michelle Veilleux was unable to find anyone to comment. Here in Toronto, the display speaks for itself.

S

o much has been debated about how we wish someone well during the holiday season. ‘Put Christ back in Christmas!’ are common cries from those who celebrate. Indeed, they should put Christ back in Christmas. That’s the reason of the season for them. For those who believe, Christ was born in a manager with livestock all around him. He had no clothes. He came from no wealth. But he led his life with love at the core. Torontonians must recognize (and most probably do) that there is room for everyone to celebrate in the way they choose, this month and throughout the year. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Diwali and other faith-based celebrations, the common thread is love and hope. Honouring what’s come before, and making a conscious effort to do better moving forward. It’s about people. It’s about kindness. It’s about generosity. It’s about acceptance. It’s about loving your neighbour. It’s about spending time with people who matter to you. It’s about giving to a stranger with no expectation of anything in return. Sharing a smile and wishing someone ‘Happy Holidays’ doesn’t detract from what the season of giving is all about. If anything, we as a people should be offended with the commercialism and high-cost of celebrating at this time of year. Buying the best of the best in gifts, but not giving the best of the best of ourselves, is the greater sacrifice to humanity. What matters is how you treat people, not the price tag attached to the shiny new present. It’s irrelevant in the long run. It’s a general understanding people remember how you made them feel, not what you did or bought for them. It’s unlikely if Jesus Christ walked this earth today he would take exception to wishing someone ‘Season’s Greetings’ or “Happy Holiday’s or a simple ‘the very best to you’. Love was Christ’s ministry and we as people of all faiths, cultures and creeds should endeavor to live our lives with love and give of ourselves to make this world we live in a better place.

Toronto public housing tenants still waiting to be safe Pelham Park Gardens isn’t alone in its problems. But if its tenants feel alone, especially at night, who could blame them? Bad people come to the building at night, and no one is there to stop it. The west-end Toronto Community Housing Corporation complex was built for seniors, and once had nurses on staff. Now a lot of tenants are people with disabilities or mental illnesses. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, they prey on them,” says Cesar Palacio, the local councillor. “That enrages me.” Mayor John Tory set up a task force to “transform” the city housing authority. Many of its 2,200 buildings are crumbling, and the city falls farther behind on

MIkE ADLER Edges of Toronto repairs. The final task force report in January called for more services to protect vulnerable tenants, supplied perhaps by outside agencies, and for “quick and consistent procedures to deal with illegal and antisocial activity.” But all tenants seem to be getting are better security cameras because, as TCHC CEO Greg Spearn explained in Pelham Park last week, he never has

more than 16 to 18 security officers to respond to buildings across Toronto. Need overnight security? We can’t afford it, and furthermore Spearn says the authority doesn’t have legal means to “screen out the bad guys” on TCHC’s waiting list, though he’d love to. “I agree with the task force but without resources I can’t do anything about it,” he says, “and we’ve been asked to cut 2.6 per cent.” In April 2015, tenants at Scarborough Civic Centre told the task force how they needed TCHC to change. Several said security was their number one issue. They wanted overnight guards, not just cameras. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, people living there illegally. These people

should be out, because we have decent people waiting to take your spot,” said a woman from Gordonridge Place, Rita Nicolson. The nightly sense of lawlessness at Gordonridge and Pelham Park needs to end. People in each TCHC building want to help, but don’t want to risk their lives confronting trespassers and dangerous tenants when staff aren’t there. The mayor must remember that he promised to listen, he promised to help. Edges of Toronto is a column about how people see life in Toronto differently, depending on where they live.

Time to re-think saving Gardiner

TTC drops expropriation plans, moves Scarborough subway work site owners were given a TTC map showing the tunnel construction site in the eastern parking lot of the mall, approximately where the TTC had proposed the subway station. Iain McLeod, the ratepayer group’s president, gave Scarborough Centre Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker, Scarborough Centre MPP Brad Duguid and Scarborough Centre MP Salma Zahid credit for influencing the decision. “I’m sure they have worked on our behalf to make today’s’ announcement possible,” McLeod said in a statement on Friday. The association had lobbied the area’s representatives not only to stop any possible expropriations, but to shift and slightly lengthen the route of the subway tunnel so that it ends in a field on Brimley Road, south of Progress Avenue, where it would not

MIke AdleR madler@insidetoronto.com Neighbours of the planned Scarborough Subway are celebrating a decision by TTC staff not to expropriate homes or local businesses for a work site. A large area is needed to park equipment and excavate a tunnel for the six-kilometre extension, and the Glen Andrew Community Association, a ratepayer group south of the Scarborough Town Centre, said owners of 11 homes and a plaza and a gas station south of Ellesmere Road faced being forced to sell. Placing the work site in part of Frank Faubert Woodlot north of Ellesmere Road, another option the TTC considered, was ruled out after Toronto City Council passed a motion forbidding it. On Nov. 24, however, the Stanwell Drive home-

What a difference a week makes on the Toronto transportation beat. Last Monday, Nov. 21 all attention was shined squarely on the impending fare hike for TTC riders. By the following Friday, the spotlight turned sharply to Mayor John Tory’s championing of tolls on the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway to help pay for transit. Getting far less ink was the admission by city staff a plan to rebuild the eastern, elevated section of the Gardiner- approved by the narrowest margins by Toronto Council last yearis going to cost much, much more than expected. It was always going to be cheaper to tear down the crumbling eastern section between Jarvis Street to approximately Logan Avenue, in favour of expanding and modifying Lake Shore Boulevard. Now it’s estimated re-building the expressway will cost one billion dollars more than projected, to $2.6 billion.

pose as many problems for residents. This would position the station not in the east mall lot but beside the current Scarborough Rapid Transit platform. People in the neighbourhood call this alternative alignment the Big Bend, and accepted assurances from Duguid and De Baeremaeker that Mayor John Tory will consider it. Details of the residents’ plan are posted at glenandrewcommunityassoc.com The association stepped up its lobbying in November by distributing a letter to their neighbourhood and others headlined, “Dear TTC: Get your gigantic hole out of our neighbourhood”, and urging residents to send it to the commission. The TTC said even with the new site location, logistics for tunnelling and building the station “are similar.”

RAhul GupTA TO in Transit That $2.6 billion to provide a negligible travel benefit for the ever-declining number of drivers using the expressway to get downtown flies in the face of world trends. Cities like New York and Montreal have either opted to or already torn down their own expensive expressways in favour of boulevards, to the benefit of local communities. Tearing down the Gardiner was something the former city manager strongly recommended, before it was flatly rejected by his elected official overseers. Tory, albeit reluctantly, came around to the idea of road tolls after years spent

opposed. The man who once ran for office opposed to the measure has now become the city’s greatest champion. Perhaps he can do the same in the case of the Gardiner. At this point, it seems highly unlikely that will happen. At a press conference this week Tory doubled down. saying it’s good to know now, years before construction of the Gardiner”hybrid” is set to begin, the price has jumped. He also held out hope the federal government will eventually contribute money to the project, which seems like a pipe dream at this point. That’s too bad, because by all objective measures, preserving the Gardiner for billions of dollars makes increasingly less sense given what the city is gaining in return. It’s time for a re-think.

Bridletowne hub funding request goes to province Proposal includes a YMCA, community centre and a dialysis and kidney disease unit

Marita Colbert is a hero in her home, and you could be too. The Scarborough woman has cared for her husband Christopher since he suffered a stroke in 2012, and shows patience and understanding doing it, says the Central East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), which named her one of its Heroes in the Home for 2016. The Central East CCAC received 131 nominations for outstanding caregivers this year - not just family members but friends, volunteers and health

disease unit on grounds of the former Timothy Eaton Business and Technical Institute must get all its necessary funds together by June 30, or go back to the drawing board. Years after an agreement between the city, The Scarborough Hospital, YMCA of Great-

er Toronto and the United Way of Toronto and York Region to build the hub, Toronto Council set the deadline in October. Last Wednesday, the board of the Central East Local Integration Network endorsed the hospital’s pre-capital submission for the hub, and asked

Ontario’s Health Ministry to complete its review of the proposed building’s physical and cost elements. The province is being asked to pay around $40.5 million of the hub’s total cost, now estimated at $65 to 72 million. “The need for dialysis ser-

Concerned, vigilant neighbours: Canadians and Trump Appalled, thrilled, stunned, confused - just a sampling of our reactions to Donald Trump’s election as US President. But why should Canadians care so deeply? Shouldn’t we observe with smug/amused/self-righteous detachment? This is not our government, nor our new leader - and we have our own unique challenges within, right? True, but our closest neighbours are vital and will affect us in many ways - by molding what is “acceptable” (and dangerously consequential) rhetoric, ripping up trade deals, and weakening other crucial agreements where livelihoods and the environment are at stake. We should and do care because as humans we want success, fairness, and social justice for our fellow life travellers, too. We should speak out if extreme solutions are attempted - will those prescriptions ease current suffering, or worsen it? Are human rights being stomped

HELEN STRATIGOS Gems of Scarborough on? Is there a decent compromise? My intuition says most Americans will not flood Canada - although their fantasies about life in quiet Cape Breton are apparently on the rise. Thousands will protest Trump’s authoritarian plans to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, and will continue to declare “Not My President”. Peaceful demonstrations are legal and expected with such a looming shakeup. Targeting specific cultural groups makes me anxious too. Millions throughout the American electorate, however, welcome and applaud Trump’s crude but direct “drain the swamp” anti-cor-

ruption talk, his stance on “rule of law”, job creation, and controversial ways of eliminating terrorism. What a complicated stew. Is a Trump-like figure possible in progressive Canada, where we decisively elected optimist PM Justin Trudeau? Pundits point to prospective Conservative leader and “Canadian values tester” Kellie Leitch (mild comparison), and the late Rob Ford, someone who had offended people of colour with odd slurs and “we can’t fit anymore immigrants” snafus. Though I didn’t support Ford, I don’t believe he, a community-oriented, hands-on politician, ever held terrifying widereaching power. Let it be known, we’ll be vigilant and we’ll keep a close, critical eye on our neighbours. Columnist Helen Stratigos’ Gems of Scarborough appears every second Thursday in The Scarborough Mirror and on insidetoronto. com

Torontonians generous with giving over the holiday season

Loyal donors help keep not-for-profits in the green

Giving back during the holiday season doesn’t have to involve opening your wallet.

With the holidays fast approaching, malls are becoming more crowded, store front windows are decorated with Christmas trees and all the trimmings, and charities have filled mailboxes and airwaves with calls for donations. And with a plethora of charities and not-for-profits vying for money from generous donors, some have had to change their approach and get more Internet savvy in hopes of collecting coin. When it’s time for North York Seniors Centre (NYSC) to target donors for its fundraisers, Jasmine Colibaba knows exactly where to find them - online. “We are focusing on the millennials,” said the centre’s development coordinator. “As a millennial myself, it’s so much easier to just give online. It’s the way the future is going. It’s the new focus. We have to think about how we can appeal to a larger audience. Twitter, LinkedIn, it’s all very important in getting our message out to a broader audience.” And luckily for NYSC, a not-for-profit organization providing programs and services for adults aged 55 and older, they don’t have to tug too hard on heart strings to get people to dig into their pockets. “Everyone has a grandma, grandpa,” Colibaba said. “They are vibrant, living in the community. But they are going to need help.” She noted one third of all annual donations to NYSC are collected in December, adding the orga-

Here are some other ways you and your family can help:

Volunteers help build a family a home on Pinery Trail last Tuesday as part of Habitat for Humanity’s GTA Crew Build. nization has a loyal donor base. According to a 2014 survey conducted on behalf of national charitable organization Imagine Canada, which examined holiday season charitable giving and attitudes about charitable donations, 62 per cent of Canadians intended to donate to charity over the holidays. Other findings included 33 per cent intended to volunteer their time, rather than money, to a charitable cause; 33 per cent wanted to set an example for their children or others about the impor-

tance of giving back; 26 per cent planned to make a donation in someone’s honour in place of a traditional gift; 42 percent said were donating to experience the joy of giving and celebrate the spirit of the holidays; and 61 per cent of those not making a charitable donation cited lack of funds as the reason. Sam Fiorella, a professor at Seneca College’s school of marketing and managing director of notfor-profit corporation Lucas Fiorella Friendship Bench, said holiday fundraising is a constant chal-

lenge for charities, with people choosing to spend their money on gifts. Yet on the flip side, those same people also feel more inspired to give in the name of someone else. “This time of year people are in a more charitable mood, and charities have to look to capitalize on that,” he said. “Our approach is not to wait until December to do something or launch a campaign. We build engagement throughout the year.” Families tend to make traditions of giving back, and one popular way is

for kids to donate to a toy drive, he said. “Because more people have more today than 10 years ago, they are willing to give, but not cash,” Fiorella said. “They want to make it educational for their kids. Re-gifting a toy for a toy drive definitely hurts ability to raise cash.” But not all charities feel the pinch of a zipped up wallet come Christmas. Andrew Burditt, spokesperson for The Salvation Army Ontario Central East Division, said its Christmas Kettle Campaign, which has been in existence in

~ Donate some of your time to a local charity like Habitat for Humanity. Get your family or co-workers involved building a home for a family in need. ~ Attach a handwritten note to a homemade treat and leave it in your mailbox for the mail delivery person. Or, if you can, hand deliver it. ~ Spend time talking with your elderly neighbour, or help them decorate their tree or shovel their driveway. If you know they are spending the holidays alone, and you have room at your dinner table, invite them over for a meal. ~ Offer to babysit for new parents, and if you have kids, bring them along to help with whatever else mom or dad needs, perhaps decorating or wrapping presents. ~ Clean out your closet and bookshelves and donate everything to a homeless shelter. ~ Be the one to reach out and make amends with someone you’ve had a falling out with. Canada for more than a century, is still an effective way to raise funds over the holidays. “We set a $3-million goal in Toronto, and we’ve been fortunate to meet it the last few years,” he said. “The money stays in the community. So if you donate to a kettle at Yonge and Eglinton, the money stays in that community.” Burditt is aware not everyone can give cash donations, so he suggests donating time - like manning a kettle. “We find people do give with an open heart.”

Real Estate www.homefinder.ca 3 tips for the cosiest winter home ever

SCARBOROUGH MIRROR | Thursday, December 1, 2016 |

18

Long nights and freezing days call for staying indoors and hibernating at home all season. But instead of missing warmer weather, you can embrace the snow and cooler temperatures by cosying up to winter with these tips. 1. Scents of the season. Create a cheerful mood from the moment you set foot in the door with delicious aromas that are an antidote for the winter blues. Light candles with scents like cinnamon, fresh pine needles, peppermint, vanilla bean, eucalyptus, and cloves. Or make your own DIY scent diffusers with twigs from your backyard, a mason jar, and essential oils that remind you of the holidays. 2. Cook up a storm. Indulge before swimsuit season with hearty comfort foods like soups, stews, and chilies. If you’re a dedicated home chef or looking to spend more time experimenting in the kitchen during the cooler months, a propane or gas stove might be a good investment for fancier dishes that require higher heat and greater control. If you

feel like channeling your inner Martha Stewart, bake cookies a few times a week for a longlasting uplifting smell. You can also fake it by mixing a teaspoon of your favourite spices with vanilla and two cups of water and heating the mixture on the stove. 3. Choose a green, cost-effective heat source. We all love curling up by the fireplace with a blanket and great book or movie. Wood-burning fireplaces actually let cold air in and allow

heat to escape up the chimney. Switch to a propane one for all of the warmth and none of the drawbacks. Also consider heating your home with propane instead of oil or electricity for a more energy and cost-efficient heat source. Never worry about running out of fuel with Superior Propane’s Smart Tank, which sends you text and email alerts when you’re low and automatically schedules a delivery.

Holiday SPECial

Trimming Toronto’s holiday tree is an epic undertaking Massive tree from Bancroft now decked out in lights david NiCklE dnickle@insidetoronto.com One of the most special traditions of the holiday season for many is to go find a tree, haul it home and decorate it with lights, tinsel and baubles in a place of honour by the hearth. For 50 years, the tree-trimming has also been a tradition with the City of Toronto. Beginning in 1967 as a way to showcase the then-new Toronto City Hall, Toronto workers have set aside weeks in November to erect a very special tree in Nathan Phillips Square. That is special, as in huge. According to Kristine Germann of Toronto’s Economic Development Department, the tree has always between 60 and 65 feet tall, brought down from Bancroft, north of Peterborough, by the Weller Tree Service, which has been providing the service since the beginning. “They always pick a tree that’s at the end of its life cycle,” said Germann. “This year the tree is approximately 60 feet. And yes, it’s pretty epic-it comes down in a big truck.” It takes a crew of eight city workers to put the tree in place, secured with guy wires and fenced off. “Once the tree’s in place, we let it settle,” said Germann. “When we get a tree at our own house, they always advise to let it settle for a couple of days, and with a bigger tree it’s a larger consideration. We need it to look good for really a month. And then it requires a cherry picker and three pieces of large machinery to decorate the tree.” The tree-trimming takes between one and two weeks, which might seem leisurely. A 60 foot white spruce tree, however, takes a lot of decorations. There are 700 ornaments in total, and 12,500 feet of lights, which for several years now have been brighter, energy-efficient LEDs. “My favourite decoration is the beautiful star that goes on top of the tree,” says Germann. “It’s made of metal. I always like to see that. I guess I know when it goes up, our job is done.” Well, not entirely done. The tree must eventually come down: two weeks after New Year’s Day, at which point, the tree is mulched “and returned to the land.”

(Top, clockwise) After the fireworks display on Saturday, crowds gather to take photos with the city’s holiday tree at Nathan Phillips Square. The celebration included live entertainment and Mayor John Tory flipping the switch on lighting the tree. Getting the 60-foot tree ready involved bringing it in from Bancroft, lifting and securing it in place, as well as pruning and decorating.

Revenue tools just the first step to responsible governance DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Toronto Council will be asked to take a pretty bold step this month as it considers whether to follow Mayor John Tory’s lead and impose road tolls, a hotel tax and full-fare property tax on vacant commercial and industrial buildings. Council hasn’t been good at imposing these things in the past, but with Tory and his staff pushing stragglers into line, it’s likely that council will avoid a repeat of 2013, when they voted to consider exactly no new revenue tools to pay for the city’s infrastructure deficit. It’s a shame the mayor won’t be pushing as hard, or even at all, in the other direction: specifically, making sure that the $33 billion estimated unfunded infrastructure commitment isn’t filled with frivolous work. At the same time as he’s

DaviD Nickle The City arguing persuasively in favour of drawing in hundreds of millions of dollars a year in revenue from people driving on the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway, Tory might consider rethinking plans to rebuild a part of the expressway as an elevated highway that is starting to look like a white elephant. On the same Dec. 1 executive committee meeting as the revenue tools appear, a report from city staff notes that the plan to rebuild the eastern portion of the highway and rehabilitate the

rest, approved in 2015 by council, is going to cost a lot more than anticipated. According to the staff report, the original $2.6-billion project is now $3.623-billion. Council should look at the eastern portion that’s being rebuilt – which costs $1.4 billion, $468 million more than council approved in 2015, compared to a much less costly plan to remove that portion of the Gardiner and replace it with an atgrade boulevard. As matters stand, the Gardiner reconstruction sits with the Scarborough subway and the diminished SmartTrack plan, as another example of profligacy – and a barrier to the goal of fiscal balance that those tolls only approach.

24 NEWS

Scarborough hospitals carrying debt; ministry hasn’t offered to cover merger costs ● From page 1 System (RVHS), saying Rouge Valley’s Centenary campus should join The Scarborough Hospital’s (TSH) Birchmount and General sites, while its AjaxPickering campus becomes part of Oshawa’s Lakeridge Health. Hoskins said all that must happen. “The order was signed following extensive community engagement, and after receiving input and feedback from patients and families, staff, physicians and local leaders,” the ministry said in a release. Coalition representatives suggested the community engagement wasn’t extensive, and there are worries on both sides of the Durham-Scarborough boundary over what mergers might mean. Though the panel had hosted public meetings, the three hospitals involved in the merger proposal didn’t, relying on questions submitted to a website, www.ourhospitals.ca, talks with invited stakeholders, and a pair of telephone “town halls” this month. “It’s been a one-way commu-

nication. It doesn’t feel like an engagement,” Kingsley Kwok, a coalition representative from Scarborough, told the LHIN’s board in Ajax. The Scarborough merger is expected to lead to long-awaited hospital infrastructure projects there, which people are happy about, but Scarborough also needs better clinical programs, Kwok said. Both Scarborough hospitals already carry debt and can’t meet financial targets set by the ministry. The ministry hasn’t offered to pay the merger costs - now estimated, just for Scarborough, at $29.6 million, against generated annual savings of no more than $1.8 million - which means more debt for a merged hospital, Kwok said. He added he submitted questions to the website on what will be done about the merger costs, and hasn’t gotten any answer back. The coalition also said the merger process was publicized poorly. Trish McAuliffe, its cochair in Durham, said the group hosted three forums there last month, and found most residents

didn’t know about a merger. “We ask that this deal not be sold in the dark,” McAuliffe said, adding a petition against the absorption of RVHS AjaxPickering will be presented, with support from local MPPs, to Ontario’s legislature Monday. “I have thousands of signatures before me that request you to reconsider this merger,” she told the LHIN board. LHIN CEO Deborah Hammons later acknowledged the criticism, but said the hospitals are on a journey that’s just beginning. Speaking about comments residents made during telephone town halls, Louis O’Brien, LHIN chairperson, said callers with complaints were overrepresented. “Most of the people who call in are going to have concerns.” The minister said Scarborough and Durham patients will benefit from the mergers, and TSH CEO Robert Biron said they “set the stage for a promising future.” But Sara Labelle, a medical lab technologist at Lakeridge, said mergers mean less employees to cover shifts, “which means wait times go up.”
