New federal riding boundaries finalized Four of the six Scarborough MPs got the riding boundaries they wanted from the Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario, despite the federal body’s complaint that Liberals Jim Karygiannis and John McKay made “unwarranted and disrespectful comments” while arguing their case. Final boundaries the commission announced Monday disappointed MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan, because the Malvern neighbourhood in her Scarborough-Rouge River riding will be split along Neilson Road as the riding is merged with the Scarborough half of Pickering-Scarborough East to form a new riding,

Scarborough-Rouge Park. Si t s a b a i e s a n , a Ne w Democrat, argued along with 40 of her residents at a hearing last November against a commission proposal to split Malvern and Morningside Heights between two ridings. For a time, the commission was persuaded, issuing a second proposal that kept the communities together but, the commissioners conceded, “created a domino effect” causing the riding of Scarborough-Guildwood to disappear and creating a new riding to the west, Scarborough-Wexford, straddling Hwy. 401. Four Scarborough MPs, two Liberals and two Conservatives, lined up against this second proposal,

which was supported by Sitsabiesan and Scarborough Southwest MP Dan Harris, the other local New Democrat. In finishing work this week, the commissioners returned to its earlier position, which will redraw Scarborough boundaries for the next 10 years. “It is clear that the attempt to reunite the communities of Malvern and Morningside Heights resulted in disruptions of numerous other communities of interest which are impossible to ignore,” their final report said. On Tuesday, Sitsabaiesan said her “heart sank” when she saw what had been done to Malvern, one of Toronto’s “priority” neighbourhoods. “It’s just not good to forcibly dilute the voice of a com-

We’ve placed a number of newspaper boxes on street corners in Scarborough for the convenience of local residents and to extend the reach of your local newspaper, The Scarborough Mirror. “This is a great opportunity for those who don’t receive the newspaper at their door, to pick up a free copy and receive your local news and advertiser messages,” said Metroland Media Toronto general manager Marg Middleton. T h e b ox p r o g r a m i s part of an expansion plan announced earlier this year which is transforming how The Scarborough Mirror is reaching the Scarborough

community. “Last week we announced we’re putting a g re a t e r emphasis on our website a t w w w. scarboroughmirror. com,” said Middleton. “You’ll see a reminder of this and our www.insidetoronto. com website, promoted on the boxes.” Here is a list of intersections now hosting newspaper boxes: Victoria Park and Sheppard avenues; Warden and Finch avenues; McCowan

and Finch avenues; Warden and Lawrence avenues; Markham and Ellesmere roads; Markham and Eglinton a v e n u e s ; Ke n n e d y and Ellesmere roads; Danforth and Wetherby roads; Midland and L a w re n c e a ve n u e s ; McCowan and Ellesmere roads; McCowan Road and Eglinton Avenue; Morningside Avenue and K ingston Road; Neilson and Ellesmere roads; Neilson Road and McLevin Avenue; and 6200 Lawrence Ave. E.

called Scarborough North. All boundaries will be official by next year and in use for a general election expected in 2015. Provincial ridings and City of Toronto wards have been based on federal ridings. MPs criticized

The new federal riding boundaries have been finalized, and Scarborough now has six ridings.

munity that’s already been marginalized,” she said. Defend riding Scarborough-Guildwood MP John McKay, a Liberal, was pleased, arguing he had been “sideswiped” by the second proposal. “Any MP’s going to defend his riding and I think we mounted a pretty vigorous

defence,” he said. Scarborough-Agincourt MP Jim Karygiannis was happy, too, because he will keep his riding north of Hwy. 401 mostly intact. “The people were re s p o n d e d t o,” s a i d Karygiannis. Instead of a ScarboroughWexford, a new r iding - making six entirely in Scarborough - will be created

The commissioners said they wanted to conduct a second hearing on Scarborough boundaries before deciding, but didn’t have enough time. Their report explicitly criticized Karygiannis and McKay, however, for saying the commission’s second proposal was a case of “gerrymandering,” or arranging riding boundaries for political gain. “The commission is deeply disappointed by those comments. They directly impugn its independence and integrity,” it said. Karygiannis, however, did not accept the report’s charge his comments were “unwarranted and disrespectful.” “I just related the language and the views of my constituents. I think disrespect was shown to my constituents” in the second proposal, he added Tuesday.

Hospital telephone town hall on Tuesday Scarborough residents have a last chance to ask questions about a potential merger of their local hospitals Tuesday, Oct. 8, during a telephone “town hall.” Though there’s no decision to merge yet, CEOs and medical chiefs of staff from The Scarborough Hospital and Rouge Valley Health System will answer questions about what risks or benefits a merger may bring.

Residents who register will get a call at 7:05 p.m. inviting them to join the town hall, and can join a queue to ask questions. With so many on the line – more than 8,300 joined the previous town hall – asking a question in public isn’t guaranteed, but a sound recording of the call and additional questions answered afterwards have been posted to a website, www.leadingforpatients.ca

The boards of both hospitals must submit their recommendations on a merger to the Central East Local Health Integration Network by Nov. 18, and the LHIN board may vote on them on Nov. 27. Residents can sign up for the town hall at www.leadingforpatients.ca/telephonetown-hall-sign-up or fill out a survey on the merger at www.leadingforpatients.ca/ community-survey

Practical and for the greater good

P

rudent health measure or nanny state legislation? When Toronto council meets next month, it is scheduled to consider implementing tough new measures on outdoor smoking in the city. These are recommendations proposed by the city’s board of health in an attempt to curb exposure to second-hand smoke. Of the series of recommendations the board made this week, one of them includes asking council to make it illegal to smoke within nine metres of the entrances to all public buildings in the city. The board of health’s recommendation that sports fields and “specific park amenities” go smoke-free as well needs parks and environment committee approval on Oct. 23 before it can go to council. Other health board recommendations, including the banning of smoking on restaurant patios, would require a change to provincial legislation. While the board endorsed the our view recommendations, Mayor Rob Ford has called the plan “nanny Non-smoking state” legislation. When it comes to new legislalegislation must tion of any sort, we ask: Is the be enforcable legislation practical? And is it for the greater good? On the first question, when it comes to banning smoking within nine metres of a public building, we do question the practicality of enforcing such a law and would like to see specific details of how the city plans to deal with that. On the second question, it’s hard to argue that it isn’t for the greater good. In a report to the board of health last September titled ‘The Burden of Illness from Tobacco in Toronto’, Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown noted tobacco use and second-hand smoke remain the leading causes of preventable death in Canada. In Toronto, adult smoking rates have “seen a slowed decline since 2001,” the report said, suggesting expanded tobacco control is needed to further reduce the risks posed from second-hand smoke. The proposals announced this week stem from McKeown’s report from last September. Council must ensure they enforceable and measurable. “The history of trying to reduce the harm caused by smoking in Toronto is one of incremental measures,” McKeown said this week, acknowledging a total ban on smoking is “not a practical objective in the short term.” It’s Toronto council’s job to ensure this next step in the interest of public health is the right one.

When the best solution isn’t the lowest price

S

ometimes it’s how our city responds to smaller issues that say so much about the strengths and limitations of city hall. Take for example the now infamous purchase of 30 chairs for the Toronto City Hall Council Lounge at $2,495 apiece. According to internal city documents, procedures were followed. Over the last 50 years these chairs have already been reupholstered twice. But because the chairs needed recovering again, the frames have started to crack and safety standards have changed, City staff thought it was a good idea to consider either refurbishing and recovering, or replacement. Out they went to the market. Only one company could comply with both city rules and specifications for complete refurbishment. The bid was $7,500 per chair. Next, city staff asked for quotes for new chairs made by the original

david soknacki beyond the headlines manufacturer. That came in at $5,200 each. Finally, they requested offers on replica chairs. One bid was received, at $2,495 per chair. Given that this quote was within the overall budget, and compliant with city rules, the order was issued. By the late summer the new chairs arrived, and the old ones put in storage. Yet within a month outrage filled talk shows. The mayor apologized, councillors and staff promised to tighten the approval process, and even former Mayor Mel Lastman expressed dismay. So how could have almost $75,000 of public funds been spent on items for which the public sees so little benefit? There is nothing wrong with the approval process itself. In this case, purchasing staff drove the price

down to one-third of the opening cost, got the total under budget and followed procurement rules. So it was a good decision? No. Paying a premium to preserve artistic integrity is one matter, paying that premium for something from which very few members of the public will ever benefit is another. And not having the creativity to figure out a workable solution is perhaps the greatest shortcoming of all. It seems that no one considered this purchase was anything more than an exercise in filling specifications. To be fair, the same inability to see beyond functional responsibilities exists in the private sector. Yet under the microscope of public scrutiny that is city hall, management should have been aware of the negative reaction to spending almost $2,500 per chair for what is essentially a private lounge. Admittedly, acquiring a

custom product with higher cost takes work, creativity and courage. But it can be done. For example, a sponsorship program for chairs in the councillors’ lounge would probably be oversubscribed. Alternatively, the old chairs could be auctioned with the proceeds at least partially paying for the new. Or we could hold a design contest. At the most basic level, city staff purchased to specification at the lowest cost. It was local management that failed to recognize that the obvious answer can be wrong, and that assistance was needed from the city manager’s office and council. In the end, it is the responsibility of council and upper management to recognize that sometimes the best solution does not lie in just finding the lowest price.

Meeting at Kennedy/ Eglinton library >>>from page 1 a catalyst for community life. The meeting is from 6:30-8 p.m. at the multipurpose room of the Kennedy/Eglinton public library branch. “This is all about building strong communities,” said Scarborough Mirror editorin-chief Peter Haggert. “We’d like to explore just how this transportation system can increase the health and vibrancy of our community – but we need your input. We do hope you attend.” The Eglinton/Kennedy library is located at 2380 Eglinton Ave. E. Similar sessions on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT will be held at Northern District public Library (Oct. 10) and Mount Dennis Public Library (Oct. 17.)

City hosts Eglinton Connects meetings Tree-lined sidewalks, fewer car lanes and more opportunities for mid-rise development are just some of the ideas under consideration for the future of Eglinton Avenue. City planning officials will be on hand at three open houses next week, including one in Scarborough next Wednesday, as part of the Eglinton Connects public consultations for re-developing stretches of the avenue in time for the completion of

the Eglinton Crosstown LRT in 2020. At the meetings, representatives from both the city and Metrolinx are expected to present design and transportation ideas for Eglinton based on public feedback from an earlier round of consultations. Some of the ideas include constructing more public gathering areas and creating space for patios, promenades and the like. On the parts of Eglinton

w h e re t h e Cro s s t ow n will travel underground between Black Creek Drive and Brentcliffe Road - a city transportation study is underway to examine the feasibility of replacing surplus carpool and bus lanes with wider sidewalks and a continuous bike lane to connect with a previously approved dedicated lane stretching east to the LRT’s planned terminus at Kennedy station.

Push on to save hospital’s fresh food program The Ontario Council of Hospital Unions has joined Ontario New Democratic Party Leader Andrea Horwath in insisting Premier Kathleen Wynne must save a program providing fresh, local food to patients at The Scarborough Hospital’s General campus. The much-praised food

initiative began last year, but TSH is studying a merger with Rouge Valley Health System, and the other three campuses of what could become a fourcampus hospital only serve reheated food. A working group looking at the issue has identified an “opportunity” to distribute

reheated meals from one campus to the other three, to the chagrin of Horwath and Joshna Maharaj, the chef who worked on the program. Michael Hurley, president of the council, said the fresh food menu at the General “is heralded as a watershed in hospital food reform” and

said it shouldn’t be cut to save costs. In a release Monday, he implied Wynne, who has promised to bring “more local food” into hospitals, can save the program. “If serving freshly made, wholesome, local food to very sick hospital patients was a priority

for this government, it would happen,” Hurley said. Wynne has said the merger talks are “local discussions” and should be allowed to happen before decisions are made.

the mirror takes a closer look at the roots of rouge

our exclusive look

‘Mother of the Rouge’ honoured Scarborough ceremony pays tribute to environmentalist Lois James

MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com

S

carborough’s Lois James is “just an ordinary person,” but one who “believed and had faith, such strong faith,” a crowd paying tribute to her and other longtime crusaders for the Rouge River heard this week. What James believes in is a spectacular Rouge River park, and she started to believe four decades ago, when such a park seemed a faint hope to most. As she approached her 90th birthday, politicians and other members of the movement to save the Rouge turned up at Scarborough Civic Centre to praise her, and to offer James illustrations of wildlife, a medallion, a certificate from city hall, a Mohawk honour song, and a blessing. They were there, also, to remember the pivotal moment in 1988 when, surrounded by 1,500 people, councillors of the former City of Scarborough, swinging from lopsided opposition to nearunanimous support, voted to protect thousands of acres along the river. Until then, the future park south of Steeles Avenue was seen by many as a place to put an eight-lane expressway, estate housing and a garbage dump. “It is a park that is not supposed to exist,” said Scarborough Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker, who joined the Save The Rouge Valley System group James co-founded and, at the Roots of Rouge celebration Monday, called her “the glue” binding the movement together through battles won and lost. “You have been touched by Lois, even if you don’t know it,” he added. People recognized the Rouge River Valley as a special place many centuries ago. Huron, and later Seneca and Mississauga villages there prospered in proximity to Lake Ontario, rich lower marshes, good soils, an abundant fishery and deep forests, said John Riley, chief science officer at Nature Conservancy of Canada. “This was a fully occupied working landscape long before the European colonies,” Riley said, though “stripped of its Native stewards,” the Rouge went

wild, and forests took over. They weren’t there long: 45 grist and saw mills were on the river by 1861, and by 1942, barely four per cent of its watershed, which includes streams flowing south through Richmond Hill, Markham and Whitchurch-Stouffville, was covered by trees, Riley said. A founding member of STRVS himself in 1975, Riley remembers it was “tough going” building a case for a Rouge Park for the authorities. It took until 1980, he recalled, to get Toronto and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) to think of the Rouge as an environmentally sensitive area, and until 1990 for an Ontario premier, David Peterson, to visit the Rouge and commit the province to preserving the river. A park, informally run and owned mainly by the TRCA, opened in 1995, and years later, expanded into Markham and Pickering. Parks Canada is now drawing up management plans for a Rouge National Urban Park in

what Riley called “Canada’s deep south,” a bioregion known as the St. Lawrence Lowlands. “And they will do it justice, I am sure. Lois will make it so.”

She’s been a moral compass, and mentor and inspiration to anybody who’s worked on this. – Jim Robb, general manager, Friends of the Rouge Watershed

There are fears about the size and composition of the federal park, and feelings, expressed even during Monday’s celebration, that the task of saving the Rouge is only half-done and will take another 25 years. Meanwhile, the work continues. The Rouge BioBlitz last month found 1,301 species of animals and plants in 24 hours, with more still being catalogued. Volunteers from Citizen Scientists spent all summer on the river counting dragonflies and damsel-

flies. The Toronto Zoo surveyed its mussels and raised 32 hatchlings of the rare Blanding’s turtle, 10 of which will be released into the park next year. 10,000 Trees for the Rouge Valley System held their 24th annual tree planting event, drawing 2,000 volunteers. Other people rehabilitated streams, pulled out invasive plants, collected data. On Monday, though, many declared if it wasn’t for James and a handful of other visionaries, the Rouge would not have had this chance. “She’s been a moral compass, and mentor and inspiration to anybody who’s worked on this,” said Jim Robb, general manager of Friends of the Rouge Watershed. Paul Harpley, a biologist and founding member of STRVS, said a line written by William Blake, poet and artist, could be about James: “A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man, or a woman, sees.” In the beginning, Harpley remembered, there were only

a few people in the movement. “You had to really psych yourself up in those days,” he said, admitting for years he thought its members weren’t really going to get anywhere. Harpley joined STRVS at University of Toronto Scarborough as a young man, and was among several speakers who said a new generation of young leaders is needed for the Rouge. After the speeches, James agreed. “Those of us who get older begin to lose steam,” she said. Asked if she ever had doubts about the group’s mission, the woman some call “Mother of the Rouge” shook her head. “We had good people, and we had UTSC. How could you go wrong?” she said, with a look of absolute conviction. “No, I never once felt that we weren’t going to succeed.”

Scarborough man sells historic wares at garage sale ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

After 50 years of accumulating garage sale goodies, John Rutherford is returning them to the front yard marketplace. Items up for grabs include 19th century children’s books, a book on White House recipes from 1906, a collection of 80 Horizon art books from the 1950s and ’60s, autographed books by Canadian prime ministers John Turner and Kim Campbell, licence plates that date back to the ’40s, horse racing photos from the ’50s and Tonka toy trucks from the ’50s to the ’80s. Scarborough residents might not recognize Rutherford on his front lawn. But they might know him for dressing up as John Graves Simcoe at local Simcoe Day festivals. That outfit, replica gun included, will also be on sale.

Rutherford, a retired high school art teacher, has been impersonating Simcoe for the past 25 years. “This is the last time I’ll be wearing this uniform,” he said during an interview at his home this week. “I certainly am going to miss it.” Rutherford, 85, not only performed as Simcoe in Scarborough, but all over southern Ontario. “He’s a fascinating character. He abolished slavery in Ontario 40 years ahead of the Americans and about 30 years ahead of the English,” said Rutherford. “He was a great man because he put his stamp on this province.” Simcoe served as the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada from 1791 and 1796 and founded York (now Toronto). Rutherford’s garage sale will be held this Saturday between 8 a.m. and noon at 39 Markham Rd.

Anyone who makes a purchase of $5 or more will receive a unique gift: keys from an 1896 Broadwood English piano. “The keys are elephant ivory and the black keys are African ebony,” Rutherford said. “These are two products which are now on the endangered list that you’re not allowed to sell and you’re not allowed to take across borders.” Rutherford said he’s been going to garage sales every Saturday “since garage sales began” about 50 years ago. “The first 10 years were marvellous. You could pick up treasures for nothing,” he said. “You don’t get that anymore, at least very, very seldom.” Now Rutherford wants to downsize. But it won’t be easy. “All these books are dear to me,” he said. Next year Rutherford plans to sell his paintings.

Young adult novel Backwards Glass set in Scarborough HILARY CATON scm@insidetoronto.com All it took was a shocking headline and a year’s worth of dedicated writing to get Scarborough native, David Lomax’s first draft of his debut novel Backwards Glass completed. Inspired by a horrific story in 2007, where

a renovator working on a house at Queen St. E and Broadview Avenue found a mummified baby wrapped up in newspaper from the 1920s in the wall of the attic. “That was running around my mind for months and months,” says Lomax, who is an English teacher at Lester B. Pearson Collegiate Institute in Malvern.

“It really affected me and it got me thinking. I didn’t write the first words that would become Backwards Glass until a year later.” said Lomax. Once completed and it had the seal of approval of his wife Christina, and his three teenage kids it was time to embark on the long road to getting the novel published. It took him sixty query letters, two agents, eight drafts and 30 submissions to publishers for Lomax’s novel to finally get picked up by the U.S. publisher Flux Books. The next hurdle for Lomax was revisions of drafts. “I am one of those people who is reluctant to do revision. Revision is work, writing is just inspiration,” said Lomax. “I get through the first draft and all I have to do is make stuff up and that’s great.” Backwards Glass, is a a young adult novel that follows the protagonist Kenny a 14-year-old boy who moves from downtown Toronto to Scarborough in 1977. On the

property of his new home there’s an old carriage house and Kenny’s father wants to tear down one of its walls and in the process they discover this mummified baby. But what his father didn’t see is a note addressed to Kenny from decades before. From there Kenny embarks on a journey that allows him to time travel and uncover a few secrets about his new neighbourhood. neighbourhood “I set it r ight in my own neighbourhood in Scarborough; Manse Valley.” Lomax’s book has distinct local references including mentions of Kingston Road and Lawrence Avenue and of a dead man’s penny, a copper plaque families of dead Canadian soldiers were given during the Second World War. But when it came down to doing some revisions, his agent Katie Grimm of Don Congdon Associates Inc., had

one revision that didn’t sit well with him. “She wanted me to take out Canadian references,” said Lomax. “But the thing is the Canadian references are integral to the story.” What Lomax decided to do was change some Canadian references at first, but not all. However, when he got to Flux Books his editor also had a suggestion about the setting of the novel. As it turns out he wanted more Canadian references, so that readers had a sense of place, he wanted it to be obvious it was set in Canada. “So Scarborough appears right on the first page of the novel,” said Lomax. “I was overjoyed because I got to put back the stuff I was really interested in.” Reviews have been glowing ahead of its Oct 8 launch. Backwards Glass launches Oct. 8. A book signing with David Lomax takes place Oct. 19 at Kennedy Commons Chapters.

The Wexford Stingers U13 team has been promoted to the CSL’s Regional Premier Division for next season.

Wexford boys promoted to Premier Division SEAN DURACK active@insidetoronto.com

The Wexford Stingers are moving on up. The under-13 Stingers, the core of which has been together for four years, are getting a promotion after an almost-flawless campaign in the Central Soccer League (CSL) L4 division this summer. The squad, with a remarkable 25-3-7 record on the season, will compete in the CSL’s Regional Premier Division starting next season. “It means were moving on to harder competition. The boys are ecstatic and we’re looking forward to the challenge,” said four-year head coach Sean Piggot, whose Stingers team went undefeated this summer throughout the Robbie International Soccer Tournament until the championship final, losing to Woodbridge by a sudden death golden goal, after winning the under-12 division a year ago. Piggot, who was fortunate enough to parlay his soccer talent into a scholarship at a U.S. school years ago, has some even bigger, possible

life-altering challenges on the horizon for his team. “What we’re doing now is we’re going to try to showcase the kids’ talent in the U.S.,” said Piggot. Plans are currently in place to bring his under-13 boys squad for a soccer camp at Piggot’s former Belhaven Un i ve r s i t y i n Ja c k s o n , Mississippi. The aim of the initiative is to show the kids, some of whom are just beginning to ponder the prospect of possible soccer scholarships, the full college or university experience: dorms, training in the early mornings before classes. It is also designed to prepare them for the grades and SATs they will need to get offers. Piggot said he is also hoping to open up the lines of communication with Canadian colleges and universities. “It’s something that in the end, when you’re 17, you should have either U.S. scholarship offers or you are looking at attending a university or college in Canada,” he said. “Because, you know, all the trophies and accomplishments we had together over the years, at the end of

the day, they mean nothing unless they can get something out of it...they have to have somewhere to go. I don’t want my players playing until 17 and then that’s it.” The program will evolve as the years pass, he said, and may include other teams within the Wexford organization, but for now, it will include solely the under-13 Stingers team. At worst, players will earn a degree or diploma out of the deal, he said. “That’s the route I took,” said Piggot. “I went down to Mississippi and got a degree in computer science and came back to work in Canada. I want to do the same for these kids.” Players on the team are Evan Bantis, Emmett Dunn, Kevin Gharibizadeh, Ryan Goodyear, Owen Hughes, Jayden Jones, Stavros Karanis, Courtland Moore, Kokelan Nesarajah, Jakob Pallotta, Matthew Perovic, Nathan Piggott, Julian Rawlins, Owen Sewell, Anistan Vaz, George Vlahos, Tashaun West and Robi Yonas. The team manager is Bonnie Karanis.

Strong Neighbourhood Strategy meetings planned across city MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com For years, living in one of Toronto’s 13 “priority” neighbourhoods meant the city and United Way were looking seriously at your area’s problems and spending millions to help. But not everybody in those neighbourhoods liked being under a microscope or having their home labelled as a place

with problems. Progress in the priority districts also proved hard to measure, even after new community hubs and drop-in centres for youth had opened in most of the 13 neighbourhoods, under what the city called its Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy. Now, the city is close to relaunching the strategy based on Neighbourhood Improvement Areas, or NIAs,

which might or might not include the same “priority” areas it chose back in 2005. The stakes, particularly for Scarborough, which has six of the priority neighbourhoods, and North York, which has four, are fairly high. In 2005, the city, province and United Way were looking for “‘hot spots’ of high need and low infrastructure,” and chose nine single neighbourhoods combining poor access

to services with “significant challenges,” such as low incomes, low birth weights, and high numbers of recent immigrants. Councillors expanded some of these neighbourhoods and added others such as Jamestown, Malvern and Lawrence Heights – touched by violence in the summer of 2005 – to reach 13. This time, the method of selecting neighbourhoods to

help is more complicated, thanks to the addition of Urban Heart @Toronto, a set of “equity-focused criteria” that includes voter participation, walkability and self-reports of good mental health. And in community consultations – which start today from noon to 2 p.m. at Cedarbrook Community Centre on Scarborough’s Eastpark Boulevard – people will be encouraged to men-

tion criteria the professionals may have missed. Toronto’s social planners want to know what’s important in people’s neighbourhoods, and what critical elements would spell “success” where they live, Chris Brillinger, the city’s executive director of social development said this week.

Ford bypassing meat of the matter to focus on gravy

M

ayor Rob Ford was unusually boisterous on Monday when he faced reporters alongside a crowd of music industry executives to talk about his trip to Austin, Texas. I suspect it wasn’t just the prospect of visiting the Lone Star State that had him going. The real boost likely came from the matter

of the Pan Am Games over-expenditures, and the afterglow of the scandal of the $2,500-a-bum councillors’ chairs. The chairs were ordered by an unnamed staff person; actually replicas of the chairs they were replacing: chairs that had been propping up councillors, mayors and their guests since the early 1960s when

Toronto City Hall was built. Last week, Ford apologized for the purchase – coming in at some $75,000 in total – and strongly implied the person responsible for the purchase had been sacked. On Monday, Ford suggested the same thing should happen to Pan Am Games CEO Ian Troop, if he can’t adequately explain a heap of questionable

david nickle the city expenses filed by himself and his staff as they set about cobbling together the 2015 games. This is high-fibre feed for Ford, and the movement to re-elect him in 2014. Ford campaigned in 2010 with the simple promise to “stop the gravy train”. To illustrate his point, he held up outgoing Toronto Centre-Rosedale councillor Kyle Rae’s decision to spend $12,000 from his office budget on a farewell party for himself. In the total context of Toronto’s nearing $10-billion budget, $12,000 didn’t amount to much of a hit. But it surely made a difference to Ford’s fortunes in the polls, turning Toronto Council’s perennial outsider into its preeminent insider. That’s a transformation that’s hard to repeat, but

it’s the trajectory a Ford re-election campaign will almost certainly follow. Indeed, the mayor is already set up to do so. Council has long ago taken control of the municipal agenda away from Ford, setting its own budgets and carving out its way on transit. mayor’s wishes Next week, council will probably ignore the mayor’s wishes on the appointment of a caretaker councillor for Ward 3 in Etobicoke. Going into the next election, Ford is firmly on the outside. But just as Rae’s taxpayer-funded party was the key in 2010, so might these new examples of the ugly confluence of privilege and profligacy unlock the door to a second Rob Ford mayoralty. And the fact that neither of these are necessarily the best examples won’t deter him. The decision to

purchase the chairs at such expense may look bad on the surface. But Toronto City Hall is a historically significant building, and the councillors’ lounge behind the chamber is a significant part of that. Similarly, the Pan Am Games is a significant civic and national enterprise, one that will bring benefits to the city’s economy and infrastructure. And if its executives are wellcompensated, and take advantage of their expense accounts according to the rules... well, once again, it’s part of being in the game. But that doesn’t matter in retail politics. Rae’s use of his office budget to throw a farewell bash was all done according to the rules, too. It still riled voters enough to elect Rob Ford mayor of Toronto. And if it worked before, well, why not again?

Council to decide on strict outdoor smoking ban DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto Council will be considering banning outdoor smoking within nine metres of all public building entrances and possibly in certain parts of public parks in November, after Toronto’s Board of Health recommended tougher new restrictions designed to curb second-hand smoke.

The board made the recommendations Monday, Sept. 30, after hearing from 18 deputations and a report from Dr. David McKeown, Toronto’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, suggesting a range of restrictions — some of which the city can impose itself, others which require provincial legislation and regulation. Immediately, the board is

One subway shutdown in October Help decide the future of the Gardiner Expressway East The Study Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto are carrying out the Gardiner Expressway / Lake Shore Boulevard Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment (EA) and Integrated Urban Design Study. The study area for the EA is shown on the map below. The EA will determine the future of the Gardiner Expressway East and Lake Shore Boulevard East, from approximately Jarvis Street to approximately Leslie Street. Four alternative solutions are being considered: • Maintain the elevated expressway; • Improve the urban fabric while maintaining the existing expressway; • Replace with a new above or below grade expressway; and, • Remove the elevated expressway and build a new boulevard. Changes to other transportation facilities could also be required. Get Involved Your input into this next phase of the project is critical. The Project Team will be hosting a number of public forums, live webcasts, workshops and online opportunities for interested persons to participate in the EA process. We invite you to the second public forum where you can see proposed solutions within each of the four alternatives. The evaluation criteria will also be introduced for public input during the meeting and your feedback and questions are welcome.

Gardiner Expressway East Public Meeting Wednesday, October 16, 2013 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. (Open house will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by presentations at 7:00 p.m.) The Bram & Bluma Appel Salon, Toronto Reference Library 789 Yonge Street, Toronto (Bloor Street subway station)

The TTC has cancelled another planned downtown subway shutdown for October. T h re e c l o s u re s we re planned this month along the “U” portion of the YongeUniversity routes, but last week the TTC announced it no longer needed to shut down the stations between Bloor and St. George from Oct. 19-20. That means only one service freeze is currently planned, during Thanksgiving weekend. Shuttle buses will serve the affected stations during the one confirmed shutdown which runs from Saturday, Oct 12 to Monday, Oct 14. Link returns after six month hiatus Construction of the UnionPearson (UP) Express air rail link is well underway and now comes news the airport train shuttle service LINK is set to return following a six-month hiatus. LINK, which offers a frequent rail connection between terminals at Pearson International Airport, was

rahul gupta TO in TRANSIT replaced by a bus route last March. It will resume this month. Metrolinx is completing work- on the UP Express which is billed as the city’s first rapid transit connection from the airport to the downtown core. The four-stop express service is scheduled to open in time for the 2015 Toronto Pan American Games and will include stations at Pearson and Union. For Youth Recruiting wRecognized

At a ceremony in Toronto last week, Metrolinx was recognized as a top Canadian employer when it comes to recruiting youth. The provincial transit planning agency was named to the 2013 list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for providing job opportunities to postsecondary students, as well as research fellowship and

internship opportunities. Metrolinx also recently launched a tuition subsidy program for current employees looking to further their education. Vic Park Work A Winner wTTC’s

The TTC also announced it had received an award for its restored bus terminal at the renovated Victoria Park station. Members of the design team for the project were publicly recognized at last week’s TTC board meeting for receiving a city of Toronto Urban Design Awards, one of five awarded annually for architectural excellence. The re-designed bus bay received the honour after it was transformed, in the words of Beaches-East York Councillor Janet Davis from a “concrete bunker”, to a welllit, gleaming, barrier-free area as part of a station-wide renovation completed in 2011.

Mammoliti back on mayor’s executive committee DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

committee. Mammoliti spent much of the past term as one of Mayor Ford’s more vocal and controversial supporters, once calling opponents to Ford’s agenda out as Communists. But Mammoliti quit the executive committee immediately after Ford was briefly convicted of violating the Ontario Conflict of Interest

The ‘thumb’ is back. The City of Toronto’s striking committee recommended that Giorgio Mammoliti, the York West Councillor wellknown for showing a thumb up or down during key votes on council, be re-admitted to Mayor Rob Ford’s executive

Act last year. According to Mayor Ford’s brother Doug, who sits on the striking committee, all is forgiven – and Mammoliti is welcome back on the executive committee, where he’ll replace former Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday, now a Progressive Conservative MPP in Etobicoke-Lakeshore. “No, (no hard feelings) at

all,” said Ford. The striking committee was dealing with a number of vacancies on city committees and boards – some but not all created by Holyday’s departure. Don Valley West Councillor John Parker resigned from the budget committee to take Holyday’s spot on the audit committee. Six councillors

were selected to sit on a task force dealing with school board issues – but not St. Paul Councillor Josh Matlow, who had worked to establish the task force in the first place. One councillor who won’t sit on a committee is former budget chief, ScarboroughAgincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande. Although councillors are required to serve

on at least one committee by legislation, Del Grande did not offer any choices. Committee chair Norm Kelly moved to put Del Grande on the city’s licensing and standards committee anyway, but the committee voted it down. Doug Ford said Del Grande was adamant about not serving.

National wheelchair basketball academy sets up in Scarborough A number of dignitaries and athletes were on hand as Wheelchair Basketball Canada broke ground on its National Academy facility at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) on Tuesday. The academy will help train the next generation of top Canadian wheelchair basketball athletes for future world championships and Paralympic Games, including the 2014 Women’s World Championship in Toronto, the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games and the Rio 2016 Paralympic Summer Games. New era

“We are entering into a new, exciting era in wheelchair basketball and Canada’s objective is to be number one in the world,” said Wheelchair Basketball Canada’s executive director Wendy Gittens at Tuesday’s ceremony. “Thanks to the ongoing support of our partners, the Government of Canada, Own

the Podium, the Government of Ontario, the Canadian Paralympic Committee, the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario, and the University of Toronto Scarborough, we are poised to build on the success of Canada’s senior national teams which have captured a

combined six gold, one silver, and one bronze medal in the last six Paralympic Games.” Federal Minister of State (Sport) Bas Gosal was also at the groundbreaking and spoke of the pride Canadians feel for the many medals won by our Paralympic athletes.

“They are an enormous source of pride and inspiration for all Canadians. The new Wheelchair Basketball Canada National Academy will help the next generation of wheelchair basketball athletes train and excel at the highest levels of their sport,”

he said. The National Academy will make UTSC its home as of now, using existing facilities until construction on the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC) and Field House, which is the largest sport new-build for the Toronto 2015 Games, is complete in July 2014. “ The Gover nment of Ontario is proud of the accomplishments of our wheelchair basketball athletes and we’re pleased to support them through the development of this National Academy,” said Michael Chan, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport.

It will take good athletes and make them great wheelchair basketball players. “It will take great teams and make them world champions and Paralympic gold medallists,” said Frogley. At first, the National Academy will be home to 14 specially selected athletes (nine male and four female) and will eventually grow to two-dozen full-time players. The roster for the National Academy includes Scarborough’s Abdi Dini who competed in the London 2012 Paralympics for the Canadian team.

Frogley to lead The National Academy will be guided by Mike Frogley, who got his start in wheelchair basketball following a car accident in 1986. He made Team Canada in 1989 and competed at the 1992 Paralympic Games in Barcelona, placing fourth, before going on to coach

Above and below left, students at R. H. King Academy take part in a Bollywood style dance for Culture Days.

Photos by Nick Perry Above, Vanessa Mangar performs at the school event. Right, Shanukha Thivyanath takes part in the dance.

Bollywood moves make the grade at R. H. King Scarborough students stage performance as part of school board’s Culture Days MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com R. H. King Academy’s giant Bollywood dance began with Vanessa Mangar asking students to lie on the floor of the school’s drama studio, with the lights off and their eyes closed. Mangar wanted them to choose a song for the outdoor Bollywood performance that had “always been in the back of my head.” Lying down and relaxed, she said, “all you’re focusing on is the music.” To Mangar’s surprise, the students selected Lat Lag Gayee, the movie song she thought was the “most Indian,” and least Western, choice. And it was Lat Lag Gayee to which

200 students and teachers danced last Friday on the field behind the St. Clair Avenue school, a spectacle staged after just a few weeks of lunchtime practices, including one when teachers could learn the dance moves without students watching. “Honestly, I just thought it was more Bollywood” than the others, Munzir Rahman, a twelfth grader who voted for the song said afterwards. “You just want to dance to it whether you know the language or not.” G r a d e 1 1 s t u d e n t Je n e k a Navaranjan thought the onlookers were impressed. “I’m pretty sure they liked it. We might try it again, because

we got a very good outcome and good results,” she said, adding she hopes it makes people see R. H. King Academy as a cultural community accepting of all. “Everybody was really dedicated to trying to make it happen,” added her friend Imani Thomas, who is in Grade 11. Another twelfth grader, Kathryn Arbour, said the dancers fed off the energy of the crowd. “This is what being a performer is all about,” she said. A student at the school just two years ago, Mangar, its choreographer, said the attention the dance got as a special Culture Days event says a lot for R. H. King and Scarborough. “I believe it can be topped” if it

were staged again, she added. More girls than boys wanted to perform, though Mangar, now studying dance and education at York University, said some boys saw one stated purpose for the event – setting a Canadian Bollywood dance record – as a reason to participate. Many people aren’t familiar with Bollywood or think “it’s a female thing,” she said, adding she assured male students “anyone can do it.” Rahman certainly enjoyed himself. “That’s just the fun of Bollywood. Once you actually do it, you realize how exhilarating it is,” he said. “Plus, ladies always love a guy that can dance.” Whether the performance was a record or not seemed a forgotten

issue. “There’s no Canadian record anywhere, so we’ve set it,” said drama teacher Alice Walter, who predicted other schools, hearing what R. H. King did, will stage their own Bollywood moments. “Next year, there will be five schools doing it, and I think that’s really fun.” The school, though, could do something different each year for the Toronto District School Board’s Culture Days, and a club may be formed to come up with ideas. “Kids will take it on,” Walter said.

Councillors seek school zone safety task force DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Scarborough Southwest Councillor Gary Crawford yesterday morning. “That’s two deaths too many... The city has been working incredibly hard with the school board to try and figure out what to do. There is not one answer that can solve the issue. Banning trucks in school zones is not the answer. What is an answer is a concerted effort

Two city councillors are hoping to set up a task force between the city and the Toronto District School Board to improve pedestrian safety for school children going to and from their schools. “We’ve had two deaths of young children in front of two school zones,” said

between all parties to really figure out how we can deal with the importance of school safety.” Crawford is co-sponsoring a notice of motion with York West Councillor Anthony Perruzza, to strike the School Safety Zone Working Group, which would consist of representatives of police, the city, the public and Catholic boards of education, and any

other stakeholders. Both councillors are responding to tragedy in their respective wards. On Sept. 3, Violet Jia Liang was killed on her way to her first day of school at C.W. Jefferys, in front of Elia Middle School when she was struck by a truck. Her death followed the death of Kayleigh CallaghanBelanger, 5, who was struck

96

and killed by a city garbage truck in March, in Crawford’s Scarborough ward. Crawford managed to get the city to reconsider routing of garbage trucks, and Perruzza had suggested it might be appropriate to turn school zones into no-truck zones. Crawford made a point of saying that wasn’t a solution, but Perruzza maintained that

reducing truck traffic would be essential. “When school is letting out there are thousands of kids on those sidewalks (on Sentinel),” he said. “So trucks obviously are one component of that. If there is a way to reduce the level of truck traffic during high volume times, that’s what the motion is looking to do. It’s not looking at a ban per se.”

One of them weaving and rolling up and around a cloverleaf turn towards the bridge crossing the river. The final 12k was very hot with the sun bearing down and no shade to protect us.

Maegan Sweeney, 16, left, Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute student, is the Junior World Champion. Her sister, Ruthanne, 18, is the Ontario Champion and the first runner up at the Canadian Interprovincial Championships.

Sisters take top honours Angeline Mair amair@insidetoronto.com

S

carborough is home to two high-level dance championship winners and a teacher with all the right steps to get her students the Highland Dance fame they have worked so hard for. Maegan Sweeney, 16, who attends Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute, recently won the title of Junior World Champion in Dunoon, Scotland. She had come close to bringing home this title before but it took some extra work and determination to get this win. She is also the current Ontario and Commonwealth Champion. Other titles she has held are Scottish C h a m p i o n a n d No r t h American Champion. He r o l d e r s i s t e r, Ruthanne, 18, is the current Ontario Champion and the first runner up at the Canadian Interprovincial Championships in Montreal. She has also held Scottish C h a m p i o n a n d No r t h American Open Champion. Their teacher, Sheryl Joyner, who was a Highland Dancer herself, said this win was a gift for her, “It was a 10-year anniversary gift (for her). Ten years ago I had a student win the world championship.”

Joyner is also a Fellow of British Association Teachers of Dance also a Scottish Official Board Adjudicator. She said the sisters are unique because they are both excellent dancers. “In dance, turnout is so important and Ruthanne has incredible turnout and Maegan has incredible strength. Their gifts are different but they are both excellent dancers.” Joyner said Highland Dance is more of a sport than a dance. “As far as dance forms it’s more of a sport. The dances they do at the world championships are men’s dances. So, you have to have incredible strength. ” Joyner wasn’t always putting the girls through these tough routines. Many years ago she used to teach at Cedarbrooke community centre where Maegan and Ruthanne came to her originally and now she teaches more highly competitive students from her home studio in Guildwood. Ruthanne started Highland Dance when she was four years old and was a recreational dancer and wasn’t sure if she was going to be a serious Highland Dancer, she said. But by the time she was 11-years-old she realized she had the potential to do better

and work harder. “As a whole, dancing has made me a better person. It’s taught me patience and perseverance and to never give up,” she said. Reaching the top, Ruthane said, took a lot of practise, hard work and taking care of her body with physiotherapy and massage. But it does have its upside – even more than being top dancer – she said she enjoys the travelling. Joyner said of Maegan, “When she was young, she tried so hard. Her shoulders were at her ears and she’d be pushing herself so hard. You knew with a kid like that we need to just get everything going in the right way and she’s going to have that drive to do it.” Finally getting that top spot took everything Maegan had. She said it was “A lot of hard work, practise and persistence,” that got her there. “I’ve come second at my Canadian Championships seven times. It’s gotten frustrating sometimes but I realized it’s not about winning.” At Christmas, the sisters take the stage at Roy Thomson Hall with the Barra MacNeils. “That is so much fun because there is no competition it’s just dancing and dancing for an audience who appreciate the reason to come together. It’s just so fun,” Maegan said.

CelebRate Thanksgiving

CONSUMER FEATURE

Hey kids: let’s talk turkey! Thanksgiving is a time to be appreciative and a time to enjoy delicious food– but the meal shouldn’t be the responsibility of just one person. As the saying goes, ‘many hands mak e light work ’. By teaching your kids how to help in the kitchen from meal prep to cleanup, you’re also helping them understand how to prepare healthy meals and appreciate food for years to come.

Helping in the kitchen teaches useful skills that will last long past dinnertime and create some great moments together as a family as well. Here are a few tips on how children of all ages can lend a hand and learn in the kitchen: • Grocery discoveries: Kids of all ages can learn the tricks of the kitchen on a trip to the grocery store. When children are involved in picking out

new foods, such as exciting vegetables, they’re more likely to try new things, helping to expand their palate. • Meal math: Task elementaryaged kids to measuring out certain ingredients using measuring cups and spoons. Once measured, invite them to mix as needed to learn what the end result will be. • Little chefs: Setting the table and retrieving ingredients

Local priest facing more sexual assault charges ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

A Scarborough priest who was charged with sexual assault on Sept. 11 now faces more charges. On Sept. 3, a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at All Saints Romanian Orthodox Church at 545 Danforth Rd. A couple who entered the church interrupted the assault, police alleged. Police arrested and charged Rev. Ioan Pop, 54, on Sept. 11. Det. Const. Teresa Curtis of the sex crimes unit said “several complainants” came forward with allegations after police issued a news release Sept. 13. “Earlier this morning, Rev. Pop turned himself in at 41 Division where he was arrested and charged with seven additional counts of sexual assault and one count

of forcible confinement,” Curtis told reporters during a news conference Monday. “These new charges relate to offences that took place between the years 2005 and 2011 and identifies seven additional complainants all of whom are women between the ages of 24 and 43 at the time of the respective offences.” Witnesses Police allege the women were sexually assaulted either in the church or in their homes. “I would like to encourage anyone who has had unwanted contact with Rev. Pop to come forward,” Curtis said. “We also believe that there may be individuals who witnessed some of these incidents.” When asked about the

forcible confinement charge, Curtis said “that was not at a church.” About 100 families are members of All Saints. In a Sept. 13 phone interview, the president of the church’s ladies’ auxiliary said Pop has been the priest at All Saints since he came to Canada about 14 years ago. “Actually he built this church, of course with the help of the community, but he was always working hard,” Magda Popescu said. “Really, I cannot say anything bad about him.” Popescu described Pop as a “very good priest” who kept the community together. “Everyone is shocked,” she said. “I don’t know what to believe now...I hope that the truth will come out.”
