Physiotherapists bring protest to Liberal candidate’s door MIKE ADLER email@example.com Physiotherapists staged a demonstration outside the office of ScarboroughGuildwood Liberal candidate Mitzie Hunter last Friday hoping to halt changes they say will put thousands across Ontario out of jobs and leave seniors without weekly free treatments many depend on. The province’s health ministry says it is expanding service across the province on Aug. 1, but health professionals working with the current system of physiotherapy clinics say the new system will actually cut current spending on physiotherapy. Their anxiety and anger over the change has attached itself to the ScarboroughGuildwood provincial byelection. “I think people who are thinking of voting Liberal need to know,” said Tony Melles, executive director of the Designated Physiotherapy Clinics’ Association, which brought protestors to Hunter’s office, charging 3,000 physiotherapy workers “will be out of a job” on Aug. 1 and that arranging new physio providers for 35,000 seniors in retirement homes, supportive housing or their own homes could take months. Dimitra Liadis, a physiotherapist at the Sts. Peter and Paul Residence who protested last week, said she has laid

off four assistants and is preparing to close the clinic she has operated in the Milner Avenue retirement home since 2003. “It’s a disguise for a huge cut. That’s all it is,” Liadis said of the new provincial strategy, which she argues abandons regular maintenance of mobility and strength in the elderly – until now eligible for free sessions up to twice a week – in favour of more restricted “episodic care.” Liadis said her clinic has 100 active patients, half of which are living through
subsidies at the home and cannot afford to pay for treatment privately. The Central East Community Care Access Centre will treat only 10 per cent – those that are immobile – with others expected to go to an off-site community clinic, “which they won’t,” she said. “They’ll be discharged Aug. 1 into nothing.” Hunter’s campaign spokesperson said the candidate was not at the office when the protestors arrived, but later tried to call them. In a statement, though, Hunter said the
system must change. “Year over year, the health payout for physiotherapy continues to be greater than what is allocated in the budget for physiotherapy,” the statement said. “Moving forward, government will now directly fund physiotherapy and exercise services for seniors and actually will be expanding availability across Ontario, and ultimately serve more seniors.” In an interview this month, Minister of Health Deb Matthews said the province
is doubling the number of people who have access to its physiotherapy services, arguing the new system will give the province better value for money and provide physiotherapy to all who need it. “If they can’t get to a clinic, they will receive it at home.” Matthews also said four large companies had bought most of the contracts for OHIP-billing designated physiotherapy clinics, which have provided service for decades but concentrated it mainly in southern Ontario. “It’s definitely a difficult time for these companies,” she said. Melles said the clinics will be contracted to provide service at some retirement homes or other venues they serve now, but on a capped basis. There is confusion about where service will continue or won’t, he said. The association, he added, will try a court challenge this Thursday to quash the new system or delay the Aug. 1 changeover date. Worries over continued service are not restricted to seniors. Terry Walker, a middleaged Scarborough man who has neurological damage, said he goes to a clinic in Bloor West Village twice a week for exercises, electrical stimulation and ultrasound on one knee. “I know it helps me because I never used to be able to stand for very long,” he said.
Walker is signing people to a petition calling on the province to review and reverse the decision. “They’re telling me (at the clinic) I only get 12 visits a year” under the new system, said the Birch Cliff man, who said he doesn’t have the money to pay for private treatments. Letters written last month by the president of Villa Elegance, a Kennedy Road condominium which functions much like a retirement home for Chinese seniors and has physiotherapy sessions for residents on its first floor, brought responses from Opposition health critics critical of the new provincial system. “Simply put, the only way the government can manage expanding coverage while reducing the budget is to cut services to Ontarians who currently depend on multiple treatments annually,” said Christine Elliot, the Progressive Conservative critic and deputy leader. She said the party has asked Matthews to delay the “shortsighted” changes, “until there has been proper consultation and a guarantee that seniors will not have their physiotherapy services cut.” The ministry said the changes will be implemented on Aug. 1 but “the expansion of clinic services will be rolled out throughout the fall.”

Residents’ input needed on subway
f it wasn’t for the Scarborough subway debate, it would seem Toronto has nothing else to talk about. Which brings us to the point of this editorial: talking. If transit is of such importance, then politicians should give Torontonians the chance to talk about it.
The debate hit a fevered pitch after Ford Fest, where Mayor Rob Ford said he was inundated with Scarborough residents telling him they wanted a subway. To make it sound like all of Scarborough took transit to Thomson Park July 5 and filled the ear of the mayor with chants of ‘We want subways!’ is hard to believe. The right approach would be to have more transit town halls – during the day and at night – so as many Torontonians as possible can have their say. That this approach should have taken place more during the David Miller era when Transit City was being constructed is a given. That these conversations our view should have continued when Ford wanted to axe Transit Hold transit Mayor City, expand subways, and now change the Scarborough RT meetings agreement with Metrolinx to a across city subway, is also obvious. However, it seems residents are, once again, at the whim of politicians – at all three levels of government. A shining example was the case with transportation minister Glen Murray’s announcement that $400 million has been removed from the Scarborough RT revitalization budget due to other construction issues at Kennedy station. There should be transit debates across Toronto because everyone will be impacted by the end result. Whether it’s the Eglinton or Finch LRT lines, the proposed Downtown Relief Line, or the currentlytrendy Scarborough subway debate, every kilometre of track laid down – LRT or subway – has a citywide impact, which cannot be ignored. So why are citizens, en-masse, being ignored? Why are they not being invited to town halls in various parts of the city to discuss transit in its entirety? Why are councillors not concerned about this lack of openness? Why, with so much money on the table to create a fluid transit solution – which includes cars – are Torontonians not being consulted? It’s all the same people being taxed to pay for these solutions. Why are we not being asked for our input on this issue?

It’s time to put the hockey talk on ice
ack in the day, I didn’t have to rely on air conditioning to make it through hot spells. Talking hockey was enough to do the trick. Not anymore. Fact is, talking about today’s NHL makes me even hotter under the collar than I already am, especially when you’re conversing with one real tough cookie. Cookie: “I keep hearing the reason the Leafs can’t make any more roster acquisitions is because of the impact of free agency on players’ salaries. I know nothing about the business of sports. Can you explain that relationship to me?” Me: “No problemo. Let’s say Team ‘X’ is interested in signing Free Agent ‘X’ away from another club. What that means is...” Cookie: “Uh, I hate to stop you right away, but wouldn’t Free Agent ‘X’ already be on Team ‘X’, given that they’re the same letters and all? It seems
jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY logical to me.” Me: “Are you implying I’m not logical, Mr. Spock?” Free agent frenzy Cookie: “Not at all. I just don’t think you comprehend the subtlety of employing variables. Why don’t you just make it Team ‘X’ and Free Agent ‘Y’ or Team ‘Y’ and Free Agent ‘X’? It’ll avoid confusion. Trust me.” Me: “Noted. So Team ‘Y’ wants to sign Free Agent ‘X’ for ‘X’ dollars, Now...” Cookie: “Uh, uh, uh. You’re using ‘X’ in two different contexts again.” Me: “Team ‘Y’ wants to sign Free Agent ‘X’ for ‘Z’ dollars. You happy, now?” Cookie: “Ecstatic. Carry on.” Me: “What’s complicating this scenario is that Free Agent ‘Y’ is also making ‘Z’
dollars and he’s not as good as Free Agent ‘X’, so...” Cookie: “Hang on. Do you mean Free Agent ‘Y’ from the previously mentioned Team ‘Y’ or do you mean a free agent on a different team?” Me: “Who cares? He could be on any team.” Cookie: “No, he couldn’t. We’ve already established that all the free agents on Team ‘X’ would be named Free Agent ‘X’. Ditto, all the free agents on Team ‘Y’ would be named Free Agent ‘Y’. So why don’t you just call him Free Agent ‘A’?” Me: “Why don’t I just call who Free Agent ‘A’?” Cookie: “The guy you just referred to as Free Agent ‘Y’” Me: “If you say so.” Cookie: “Excellent. So, just to recap, where you left off, Team ‘Y’ wants to sign Free Agent ‘X’ for ‘Z’ dollars. The problem is Free Agent ‘A’ is making ‘Z’ dollars and Free Agent ‘A’ is not as good as Free Agent ‘X’.
Now, please proceed.” Me: “Proceed? I don’t know what the heck you’re talking about. Look, I think we both need a break. Do you want to get some Chinese food? I could have sworn I saw a menu on the table in the kitchen.” Cookie: “You did and it’s taken care of, pal. I ordered before you came over to save time, in case we got into one of our typical, lengthy hot discussions. Here’s what I asked for, ‘X’ from Column ‘A’, ‘X’ from Column ‘B’, ‘X’ from...” Me: “Uh, do you mean ‘X’ from Column ‘A’ and ‘Y’ from Column ‘B’, etc.?” Cookie: “No. How on earth did you arrive at that conclusion?” Me: “Your lecture on proper variable usage. How else?” Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. His column appears every Tuesday. Contact him at email@example.com

What is your choice for the next rapid-transit project to be built in Scarborough and how will that project benefit people in Scarborough-Guildwood?
How can a provincial government make a tragedy like the Danzig Street shooting less likely to happen in Scarborough?
■ As TTC Chair and Vice-Chair of the City of Toronto’s Public Works Committee I have managed multi-billion dollar budgets and delivered better transit, reliable services and accountable government for people in Toronto and Scarborough. Now I want to deliver results for the people of Scarborough-Guildwood. I want to join Andrea Horwath and the NDP who delivered real results for people, cutting auto insurance and wait times for home care and created 25,000 jobs for youth.
■ I will deliver better and more affordable and reliable transit for Scarborough-Guildwood with no unfair new taxes or new fees on families. People in Scarborough-Guildwood have waited long enough and they have paid their fair share. Scarborough-Guildwood deserves better, reliable and more affordable transit now. The Liberals want to charge families up to $1,000 more a year for transit while they let the richest corporations keep $2 billion every year through corporate tax loopholes. That’s just wrong.
■ People in Scarborough-Guildwood need transit now to get around the riding. Subways and LRTs are good options but they both take time to build. Ten years from now even if a subway were built, people in ScarboroughGuildwood will still be taking buses. People in Scarborough-Guildwood need a transit network now with no unfair taxes or new fees so families can go where they need to go as quickly and efficiently as possible.
■ The provincial government should serve the needs of the people of ScarboroughGuildwood. It should improve rental housing with real rent control and landlord licensing so families have safe, clean and affordable housing. It should provide proper funding for local school programs and support for local communities. And it can provide young people with jobs and opportunities. I will push the Liberal government to create more jobs for youth to add to the 25,000 jobs created by the NDP.
■ I grew up in Scarborough, went to high school here, and studied at U of T Scarborough campus. I worked to put myself through school and started my own small business here. I have worked for large corporations and not-for-profits; most recently as the CEO at CivicAction. My professional experiences in conjunction with my MBA education; and my own personal experiences of life in Scarborough sets me apart from others. I have lived, studied, and worked here.
■ With this riding having three priority neighbourhoods and the highest urban, offreserve aboriginals in Ontario; I will champion for increased focus on youth, especially at-risk youth, and opportunities for them. Specifically, I will fight to bring a portion of the $245 million set aside for the youth jobs strategy to this community. I want to collaborate with local stakeholders to decide how to best allocate this funding. We need to ensure youth feel part of this community.
■ From my conversations at the doors, residents have been clear that access to transit is a priority issue for them. I am supporting the expansion of the subway to Scarborough because residents in Scarborough deserve high quality transit to get them moving easily and seamlessly. This subway expansion will also deliver economic development and create jobs. It will ultimately help to build a better Scarborough.
■ We must work together as a community to ensure this type of tragedy is less likely to happen. Government has taken steps to address root of violence issues. It appointed Dr.Curling to provide advice and made funding permanent to violence prevention programs. There’s been progress made, but there is more to be done. I want to help create cohesiveness between government and community stakeholders to address the issues in the community and promote civic participation.
■ As a resident of Scarborough-Guildwood, I understand the issues that affect our community everyday. My family attended schools here; use the transit system; and are cared for by local hospitals. I am not a career politician. I came to Canada 25 years ago and made a living for my family. In the last few years, Ontario’s economy has struggled. I entered this race to give back to a community that has given me so much.
■ The latest statistics have put unemployment in our community at over 13 per cent, much higher than the provincial rate of roughly seven per cent. This is an issue that has a broad impact throughout our community. Ontario faces a sad paradox; there is a skilled worker shortage, but large numbers of people, disproportionately youth, are unemployed. I will champion jobs for ScarboroughGuildwoood as part of the Ontario PC plan to put us onto a path of prosperity.
■ The solution to breaking gridlock and unlocking the economic potential of Scarborough is by delivering subways to our community now. The people of Scarborough have been clear and we cannot be side-tracked by political self-interest. A fiscally-prudent government can deliver this promise as part of a long-term vision for economic development. The PC government commits to doing this without new tax tools that would disproportionately affect our community financially.
■ Sadly, senseless acts of violence continue to disproportionately affect those in our community. This is a problem that cannot be oversimplified; it deserves a multi faceted approach from all levels of government. As a voice for our community, I will work day and night at Queen’s Park to push the provincial government to take a comprehensive approach to relevant education, economic and community development, and law and order to address the violence in our community.
■ I’ve practised law across the country and internationally. I’ve seen the beauty of our world and, as the son of a family farmer, I’m intimately aware our natural wealth in Ontario. This helps me appreciate the connection between a prosperous economy, healthy environment, just society, and the need to balance all three. That’s why I am running for the Greens: we’re a party of balance, the best of the left, the right, and more!
■ Healthcare. Our riding deserves an MPP who takes the social determinants of health seriously. I do. Our well-being is connected to what we eat, how we get around, where we live, and how much money we make. I will champion nutritious food, physical fitness, access to high-quality community care, affordable housing, living wages, and the equal funding for our hospitals and integrated health teams, while working to increase efficiencies in order to keep spending sustainable.
■ Light Rail. If we had an honest debate about transit it would be clear: subways face a $300 million funding gap, will take half a generation (12 years) to complete, and cost $1 billion more than the already funded, already planned LRT. Subways mean more of what Scarborough knows too well: delayed connection. LRT is action today to lessen grid lock, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, improve our health, productivity and quality of life.
■ Community well-being and public safety should be the first priority of government in partnership with local NGOs and business. There is a correlation between crime rates and poverty. We must work for an economy that offers meaningful employment – especially for young people; an environment that enables connection to nature – clean air, fresh water, and a stable climate; and strong social programs that meet needs of the most vulnerable. All will help reduce poverty and violence.

WEB VIDEO FOR SUBWAY RIDERS
The latest TTC web video instructs subway riders how to properly use the passenger assistance alarm (PAA). The yellow strip is found on all trains and is intended to quickly summon emergency services personnel to attend to someone in urgent need of aid. But as is pointed out in the five-minute Youtube clip, 70 per cent of the 6,000 PAA activations in 2012 were for nonemergencies and resulted in more than 50 hours in delays to commuters. The video is the latest in a series intended to educate ridership about TTC issues. To see the video, go to: www.youtube.com/embed/ sPrypYcw0mw SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS ◗PRESTO
Presto now allows transit users to load the equivalent of a monthly pass onto their prepay electronic fare cards. The passes are also automatically renewable and
����� ����� TO �� TRANSIT are one of several improvements to Presto announced by Metrolinx last week. Other new features include being able to add 10 cards to one user account and being able to pay the concession fares for children, students and seniors which was not possible before. For more information about the new features, visit www.prestocard.ca CHANGES COLOUR SCHEME ◗GO
Commuters may be forgiven if they do a double-take the next time they board a GO Transit vehicle. That’s because the regional transit agency has decided after nearly 50 years to revamp its traditional GO Green colour scheme. A photo was posted online last week of a GO train locomotive and passenger car at GO’s Willowbrook Yard maintenance facility in Mimico
sporting the new look, which now features two contrasting shades of green. The GO logo is also a darker green. GO spokesperson Anne Marie Aikens confirmed the colour change, which has already appeared on refurbished trains and buses. WI-FI SUBWAY ACCESS EXPANDS It will be some time yet before all TTC commuters can surf the internet while standing on a subway platform, but two stations at least will offer free Wi-Fi access by the end of the year. The TTC announced it is ready to proceed with a pilot Wi-Fi program at St. George and Bloor Station starting in December 2013. BAI Canada Inc, which is building a wireless network for 61 subway stations, has presented its installation and design plans for the project, which won’t be completed until the end of 2017.

The store successfully raised $1391.31 which will beneﬁt children with cancer by funding positive group activities and emotional support for young cancer patients receiving treatments in hospitals across Canada. The Foundation allows these children to get away from painful and isolating treatments and to give them the opportunity to do what children are supposed to do- have fun and celebrate life.

The lesser-known benefits of cardio Fans of cardio will admit they love the feeling they get during and after a rigorous round of this type of exercise, which includes activities like running, cycling and walking. But those who dread their time on the treadmill, elliptical machine or stationary bike are likely to categorize cardio as a boring and uninspiring activity. Regardless of a person’s opinion on cardio, there’s no denying it offers numerous benefits, many of which even avid athletes might be unaware. Cardio boosts brain power. Perhaps the least known benefit of cardio is its positive impact on the brain. During cardiovascular exercise, the brain is being flooded with chemicals that improve decision making, memory and problem solving. Cardio can also help preserve memory and improve its ability to learn. So while the physical benefits of exercise are widely known and noticeable to the naked eye, cardiovascular exercise can be just as effective at improving cognitive function. Cardio can improve your appearance. Improving physical appearance is a motivating factor for many physically active men and women, and cardio can go a long way toward improving physical appearance because it increases lean body tissue while reducing fat. Cardiovascular exercise is a healthy way to burn calories, and burning calories is a healthy means
to losing weight. Cardio can help reduce the severity of preexisting conditions. Arthritis sufferers have long looked to cardiovascular exercise as a healthy means to relieving the pain caused by their condition. Water exercises like swimming make for great cardiovascular exercises, especially for those looking to relieve arthritis pain. That’s because an exercise such as swimming keeps joints moving while strengthening muscles surrounding those joints. Studies have shown that cardiovascular exercise also can lower blood pressure. Cardio can improve mood. Cardiovascular exercise can benefit men and women suffering from depression or those who are simply having a bad day. That’s because the mood-boosting
chemical serotonin is released to the brain during cardio, helping to improve mood and alleviate symptoms of depression or fatigue. Cardio can make tomorrow’s workout easier. Recovery time is important to athletes, many of whom want to ensure their bodies are ready for tomorrow’s workout even before they finish today’s. Cardiovascular exercise helps to deliver more oxygenrich blood to muscle tissue, aiding in tissue repair and recovery. The quicker your body can rebound from today’s workout, the more effective tomorrow’s workout will be. So even if you don’t enjoy that pit stop at the treadmill before you head home, it’s paying more dividends than you might know. – MS
