Hospital tests ROSE OF SHARON IN SCARBOROUGH 87 infants for TB exposure DANIELLE MILLEY dmilley@insidetoronto.com

The Scarborough Hospital is testing 87 infants for possible tuberculosis exposure after a staff member tested positive for the disease. The infants were in the neonatal intensive unit (NICU) at either the General or Birchmount campus of the hospital between April 1 and July 18 when they would have possibly been in contact with the staff member. The staff member was at both of the hospital’s sites. Toronto Public Health has called all parents of the 87 babies admitted to the NICU during this time frame and have asked them to visit special clinics at the hospital for TB tests, which started Wednesday. The tests involve a simple skin test and chest x-ray coupled with preventative treatment and ongoing follow-up assessments. Cindy Woods, TSH spokesperson, said a third of the patients were tested on Wednesday. “By the end of the day we expect to be up to two thirds of patients,” she said yesterday. Parents who have not been contacted do not need to attend the clinic, and their infants are not considered at-risk. Although the risk for transmission is considered to be very low, because >>>TESTS, page 8

Scarborough Town Jazz Festival aims to hit high note MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Launching a summer jazz festival, it’s hard to stand out. Organizers of the Scarborough Town Jazz Festival are hoping festival “fusion” is the answer – on their second try staging a weekend of music next month they are joining forces with another set of events, Scarborough Summerfest. Summerfest, featuring cultural performances, vendors and at least one fashion show will be held during the same three days as the jazz fest – Aug. 10 to 12 – and at the same place, the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto. FOCUS ON YOUNG PEOPLE “We’ll bring an exciting depiction of our community. It’ll represent what Scarborough is about and focus especially on young people,” Mario Bullin, the jazz festival manager, said at a press conference at the centre last week. The match between culture and jazz will be a “meaningful” one and help bring people together, said Dr. Ming-Tat Cheung, chairperson of the cultural centre.

With its expansive P.C. Ho Theatre and grounds, the building at Sheppard and Progress avenues is increasingly used to stage events meant for audiences including more than just the Chinese community. But facing competition from established jazz events in downtown Toronto, the Beaches, Markham and Montreal, will the Scarborough Town Festival find success by showcasing young talent and multiculturalism, a common theme at Scarborough festivals and fairs? Eddie Bullen, the festival’s artistic director, thinks so. REFLECT COMMUNITY “We’re broadening out more to reflect and depict the community,” he said, and anticipating the festival will attract some tourists remaining in Toronto after the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival. Last year’s inaugural fest, also held at the cultural centre, offered strong performances but didn’t draw large crowds. “The attendance was not as robust as we were hoping,” Bullen said. “This is the incubation period.” At other festivals young performers “are in the background,”

but organizers of the Scarborough event looked for youths capable of handling themselves on stage, he said. One is Chelsea Stewart, 19 and returning from last year. At last Monday’s press conference, she sang The Newness of You by Norah Jones and At Last, made famous by Etta James, as though she was born to do it. OPENING NIGHT Life is “bleak” without music and culture, said Scarborough-Rouge River Councillor Raymond Cho, who predicted the combination of festivals will be more successful than either event on its own. “We’ll have one of the best summer festivals in Scarborough,” he said. Summerfest is free, as is the entire Saturday and Sunday jazz program on the grounds of the cultural centre and in its multi-purpose hall. Admission to the jazz festival’s opening night at the P.C. Ho Theatre on Friday, Aug. 10 is $15. Event times, lineups, ticket sales and other information is available through Latin Music Productions at www.latinmusicprod.com/index. php/home.html

Councillor hopes for compromise on Chine Drive sidewalk debate

EL SHADDAI CELEBRATION

Scarborough Southwest Councillor Gary Crawford is hoping a compromise in a proposed reconstruction of Chine Drive will please both residents who want a sidewalk on the road and those concerned it would damage trees. The apparent clash between safety and nature on Chine has held up the road work south of Kingston Road since 2004, and was reflected in comments at a public meeting last fall. This week, the City of Toronto announced it has completed an environment assessment on the project that recommends building a sidewalk “within the footprint of the paved road surface” during the project, which will include work on watermains, sewers and driveway culverts. “This approach separates pedestrians from cars, while maintaining

the narrow width of the road,” said the study, which is open for public comment until Aug. 31. Crawford called the recommended option a “stamp sidewalk,” part of the asphalt but raised above the road, and described it as a way to improve safety on Chine while preserving the street’s “historical country feel.” Some small trees near the road would have to be removed during construction, but “they would have to be removed regardless of whether there would be a sidewalk there or not,” while a concrete sidewalk along Chine would lead to removal of more trees, he said. Crawford said he will host public meeting on the matter before it reaches Scarborough Community Council, likely in October, for a decision. – Mike Adler

Make plans to enjoy Ontario Summer Games T

here are three kinds of news: There’s news that touches a person intimately. There’s news that might spark a passing interest as long as the topic is hot. And then there’s the topic, irrelevant perhaps to everyday life, but as a curiosity piques one’s attention for a short period of time. The Olympics are the third kind of news. Sure, some sports fans will follow the our view U.S. basketball dream team’s activities; others may follow a Canadian sports personality like Check out the cyclist/skater Clara Hughes. athletes, venues But during the games, suddenly our attention turns to a here in Toronto variety of athletics not necessarily visible in our communities or seen regularly in the sports reports. Judo? Swimming? Great fodder for two weeks, for people with national pride yet no usual daily interest in the sporting world. But these events help bring a city to life. Think of the vibrancy of Vancouver during the past winter Games. Look at the spectacle created these days in London. In 2015, we’ll have a very visible spot on the world stage with the Pan/Parapan American Games held in Toronto and outlying regions. Those games will be very visible in Toronto, with 10,000 athletes from 41 countries competing in 48 sporting events. It will be quite a celebration for nationals and immigrants from other lands in the Americas, watching “hometown” participants. But we’d like to remind you of another important, prestigious set of games going on in Toronto later this month. The Ontario Summer Games, drawing 2,500 young athletes from across the province, will be held at 18 venues across the city Aug. 16 to 19. These are the young stars in 21 sports – and this has been an early test for quite a number of athletes who have gone on to Olympic stardom. This will be a chance to see some of the sports most people don’t often view, and a chance to cheer and encourage young athletes who don’t always have exposure. The Ontario Summer Games are a great opportunity for them to develop a public and visible face. We encourage you to consider attending some of the events as part of your summer plans. It’s an opportunity to explore venues within your own city, and learn about unfamiliar sports. Summer in the city. So much to see, so much to do.

To the editor: I would like to suggest a solution to improve the staffing levels in Toronto’s police department. I have to wonder why I see fully equipped, good to go police officers standing around the many dozens of construction sites across the city watching a work crew digging a hole. What is the ultimate cost to the taxpayers of Toronto? If these men and women have all of this extra time off so that they can work these hours plus their regular shift, perhaps the regular shift could be increased to allow them to focus on essential police work. So I have to ask, is the City of Toronto squandering this valuable resource by assigning its officers to this duty? Is this another way for our cash-strapped city to generate income for the city treasury by having the contractor pay for security? Or is this once again part of the dance between the city and its unionized employees? Chris Belfontaine

Olympic fever is nothing to sneeze at M

y pal Jeff has been sneezing non-stop since last Friday, but he has no intention of going to see a doctor. He says it’s no big deal, that it happens every four years at exactly this time. He claims he’s allergic to the Summer Olympics. Now, Jeff is known for his tall tales, so nobody’s buying it, least of all Jen, another friend, who is a multi-gold medalist when it comes to skepticism. “Allergic to the Summer Olympics,” Jen cackled. “Come on man, there’s no such thing. You think I just fell off a turnip truck?” “I took my turnip truck to work today and I was the only one on it, so no to your rhetorical question. But if you think I’m kidding about the allergy, ask me anything about the 2012 London Games and I’ll prove it.”

but seriously

“I can’t believe I’m getting roped into this,” Jen grumbled. “But if it’ll put an end to this nonsense, gladly. Here goes. In the equestrian competition, which do you find to be the most demanding of the three disciplines?” “Dressage.” “Bless you,” she replied, caught completely off guard. “Interesting. How about this one? What do they call any double somersault with a twist in trampoline?” “Fliffis.” “Bless you again,” she responded, just as surprised. “Moving right along, what do they call a short, quick

forward jump in fencing?” “Balestra.” “Bless you, again. I’m going to switch gears to an athlete, if you don’t mind. What’s the name of Canada’s top male road cyclist?” “Hesjedal.” “Bless you, once more. What do they call that special heat in rowing in which preliminary round losers get another chance to qualify?” “Repechage.” “Bless you another time,” she grinned, clearly getting into it. “Now, I’m going to pick up the pace. What’s it called when a beach volleyball player makes a bad set-up to a teammate? What’s the world governing body for soccer? And what’s that start called in the 200m and 400m races in track and field in which the runners don’t begin side by side? “Shank. FIFA. Staggered.” “Bless you. Bless you.

Bless you,” she screamed. “One last one and that’s it. What’s that vault in which gymnasts jump up off the springboard, do a quarter turn onto the horse and then push off into a back flip often with multiple twists?” “Tsukahara.” “BLESSSSS you. Well, I believe I owe you a big apology. I have a bottle of capsules in my pocket that is what you need to get through the Olympic Games.” “Much obliged. What’s the product called?” “I’m allergic to saying the name. In one of life’s ironies, like you, I also sneeze before I can get it out. Go figure.” “Give it your best shot. So what is it anyhow?” “Echinacea.” “Bless YOUUUUU.” n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics?

Scarborough’s Lancia on Canadian men’s wheelchair basketball team DANIELLE MILLEY dmilley@insidetoronto.com

but if enough money is raised the whole family will try to attend to watch him compete.

Elizabeth Lancia would like nothing more than to watch her son compete at the Paralympic Games in London, but the cost might just put that dream out of reach. The Lancia family has had to watch from their Scarborough home as Adam Lancia, 32, played for Canada at the games in Athens and Beijing and won gold and silver respectively. But, this year when they heard an Olympic sponsor was giving $1,000 to moms to help them get to the games they thought it might be possible for Elizabeth and Lancia’s sister Valerie to get to London. Elizabeth said they’ve been able to watch the events live online, but it’s just not the same. “It’s been exciting in that we’re watching, but it’s also disappointing in that we weren’t there to cheer him on,” she said. The family has dedicated August to raising the money necessary for flight and accommodations. It would be difficult for Lancia’s father, Gaetano, to take the time off work,

Team Canada Lancia was born without feet, but never let his disability hold him back after being fitted with artificial limbs just before his first birthday. He began shooting hoops in 1989 after discovering wheelchair basketball at Scarborough’s Variety Village. He made his Team Canada debut in 1997 at the first-ever junior men’s world wheelchair basketball championship in Toronto and joined the seniors men’s national team in May 2001. He said it would mean the world to him to have his family in London cheering him on. The London Paralympic Games begin on Aug. 29. The details of fundraising events are still be finalized. For now a bank account has been set up for donations at the Bank of Montreal, transit number 24612: institution number 001, account number 8989-929.

Scarborough’s animal shelter preparing to offer two-for-one cat adoptions DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Next Wednesday is a big day for felines — and to celebrate World Cat Day on Aug. 8, Toronto Animal Services is going to make it easier than ever to adopt a kitten from their shelters all week long. Starting on Tuesday and continuing through to Friday of next week, Toronto Animal Services will offer a two-for-one adoption fee discount for anyone who comes in and adopts two cats. The event is kicking off at the Toronto Animal Services East Division at 821 Progress Ave. in Scarborough, but potential cat owners can adopt from any of the city’s shelters according to licensing and standards committee member Glenn De Baeremaeker. “I think World Cat Day was created to recoginze the contribution that cats give to our lives,” said the Scarborough Centre councillor. “Well you know what, we’re going to find our best friends at the animal centre – I’ll be there, and we’ll have an adopted parent there, someone who’s adopted two cats — plus, 200 kittens.” The Cat Day deal will mean a savings on adoption fees, which are normally $75 per cat.

‘There’s a lot of cats that need a lot of love and a lot of people that need a lot of love. We’re trying to be matchmakers.’ Scarborough Centre Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker “Normally, it would cost you $150, but starting that week for four days you can get a two for one special at the animal centres — or at Pjs at the Scarborough Town Centre or Sherway Mall, where we have offsite adoption centres.” De Baeremaeker added that even if residents don’t quite feel ready to take on two cats — they can always bring a friend, and each walk WWW.AGINCOURTHYUNDAI.CA away with one feline. “We have them literally by the hundreds,” he said. “Very often, we have 600 cats at a time in our shelter. The last time I checked we had 200. There’s a lot of cats that need a lot of love and a lot of people that need a lot of love. We’re trying to be matchmakers.”

Tests a precaution: hospital >>>from page 1 infants are involved, the hospital is taking the steps to ensure the safety of its patients. “If any of these infants do test positive, be assured the hospital will provide immediate treatment and extensive follow-up care,” said Dr. Peter Azzopardi, chief of pediatrics. “We have been working closely with some of North America’s leading tuberculosis experts at The Hospital for Sick Children, and want to reassure parents that with the right protocols, TB infection can be found, treated and cured.” Tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious disease caused by bacteria. It usually infects the lungs, but can affect any part of the body. TB has been around for centuries, and while it remains a serious problem in many parts of

the world, it can be prevented and cured with proper medical treatment and medication. People can have either active (called TB disease) or latent (TB infection) TB. The staff member was active at the time. Additional information and support materials have been posted on the hospital website at www.tsh.to “There is no further risk of transmission, and the NICU at both the General and Birchmount campuses remains open and continues to accept new admissions,” said Dr. Reena Lovinsky, medical director, infection prevention and control at The Scarborough Hospital. “The tests we are recommending are really a precaution,” said Lovinsky. “Although TB cases are on the rise in Toronto, they are extremely rare for newborns.”

Runner headed to Hershey track meet >>>from page 1 Brianna, who was born in Jamaica, immigrated to Canada in 2010 and currently attends Scarborough’s Macklin Public School. At such a young age, she has been awarded a number of first place medals, with particular success in the 100 and 200 metre sprints. She had first place finishes in the preliminaries and finals in those events at the 2012 United Age Group Track Coaches Association meet in Philadelphia in July. She also recently placed first in her age group in both races at the Brantford Track

and Field Club meet in June. Brianna, who considers Jamaican Olympic gold medalist Veronica Campbell her role model, is determined to “grow up and try to win the Olympics,” she said. From Aug. 2 to 5, she is heading to Pennsylvania along with eight other athletes from the Flying Angels to compete in the Hershey’s Track and Field Games, where she will not actually run sprints but compete in standing long jump. “Her biggest strength is her determination and her desire to do well,” said Letford.

has distinguished himself in selling real estate.

Make the most of small bathrooms

When we decided to sell our home of 31 years, our first choice for an agent was Greg Ho. This was primarily based on his regular home sale updates and the testimonies of many satisfied clients. However, we also recognized that Greg’s professional engineer status spoke well for his capabilities, professionalism and integrity, characteristics that we believe to be important in any agent selling our family home. Greg and his team made the process painless and enjoyable and we have no hesitation recommending him. John & Pamela Alston, 19 Penzance Dr., Scarborough BRIMLEY / LAWRENCE

Renovating bathrooms is commonly at the top of home improvement to-do lists. Though some rooms around the house may remain timeless, bathrooms show their age much more easily, which could be why homeowners are always on the lookout for new ideas. Small bathrooms are common, particularly in older homes, but they needn't force homeowners to compromise on style when renovating. By thinking creatively, homeowners can maximize their spaces and redo bathrooms in ways that bring out their best assets. • It's best to look for fixtures and items that fit with the scale of the bathroom. Although you may want a large vanity and cabinet to hide all of your toiletries, this simply may not be practical. Instead, look for elegant pedestal sinks that have a much smaller profile. They'll also help you control the clutter in the bathroom because there won't be anywhere to hide it. • Use optical illusions to make

the bathroom appear more roomy. For example, lay tile diagonally to create the impression of space. A large mirror will reflect the room back and make it appear much larger than it really is. Minimize wall hangings and keep fixtures smaller. Filling the walls with knickknacks may contribute to clutter and make the space appear closed in. Use decorative items sparingly. If possible, store towels outside of the bathroom. This way you won't have to devote space inside the bathroom to a closet. While some people like the thought of a separate bath and shower, in smaller bathrooms this may not be possible. Instead, look for a combined shower and bath, or select a walk-in shower with a much smaller profile. Windows are often welcome in bathrooms because of the ventilation they provide, but they could be a hindrance in smaller bathrooms because they take up prime wall

space. Cover a window in a shower stall to free up space. Just be sure to install a venting fan to reduce moisture in the bathroom. • Maximize wall space if you need storage. Find cabinets that will fit beneath windows or be able to fit in thin areas between sinks and toilets. Over the toilet is prime area for cabinetry. • Consider a frameless shower. This is a partitioned area of the bathroom that's set aside for the shower and is typically only cordoned off by a thin wall or piece of glass. Or a shower with no walls at all is the ultimate in space-saving. The entire bathroom floor is decked out in tile, and a portion is sloped toward a shower drain. • Think about installing a skylight if you prefer natural light, but there is no room for a traditional window. Thinking creatively can help turn a cramped bathroom into a space-saving and well-designed room homeowners desire. – MS

Estate Board (TREB) President Ann Hannah. The average selling price in the first half of July was $473,466 – up by 2.3 per cent compared to last year. On average, homes sold for 98 per cent

of the asking price in 25 days – in line with July 2011. Price growth was strongest in the City of Toronto, climbing by 3.5 per cent to $496,645.

Mid-month resale figures released Greater Toronto realtors reported 3,679 sales through the first 14 days of July 2012, representing a 5.6 per cent increase compared to the 3,484

sales reported for the same period in 2011. New listings were up by 14.4 per cent over the same time frame.

“A better supplied market contributed to a slower annual rate of price growth in July relative to the first half of 2012,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis. “As buyers benefit from more choice in the second half of this year, expect price growth to slow to a more sustainable pace.” – TREB

Track athletes win golds at junior national meet NORM NELSON nnelson@insidetoronto.com The Scarborough-based Phoenix Athletics track and field club has a long list of Olympians among its past and present members – including Birchmount Park Collegiate grad Aaron Brown at this summer’s London Olympics. And the club showed at the Canadian national junior track and field championships, which wrapped up in Winnipeg on Sunday, why they’ll likely remain a force in the future. Phoenix Athletics Toronto athletes earned three gold medals at the junior nationals – and all three were Phoenix Athletics members from Scarborough, including: • Marlon Laidlaw-Allen, winning the 200metre sprint in a time of 21.18 seconds. He graduated this year from Scarborough’s Bendale Business and Technical Institute after winning both the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) 100m and 200m championships this past spring. At last weekend’s nationals, he withdrew from the 100m because he was “nursing a hamstring injury”, explained his coach Bill Stephens, a retired former phys-ed head at

Birchmount Park Collegiate, now coaching with the Phoenix Athletics. “He ran fast enough to win, but he didn’t run a PB (personal best) – but he ran very close to it.” • Brittany Crew, winning the women’s shot put (14.03 metres) and adding a silver medal in the women’s discus throw. At the OFSAA championships this past spring, Crew won gold medals in both events (setting an interscholastic record in the shot put). The Birchmount Park Collegiate student is graduating to Eastern Michigan University on a track and field scholarship this September. • and Ally Christiani, winning the 400-metre championship in 55.82 seconds (and eighth in the 200m). “She ran a massive personal best in the heats (55.44 seconds) to qualify and her final wasn’t quite as fast,” said coach Stephens. “But if she hadn’t run so fast in the heats that would have been a personal best. She was really on her game. She ran a personal best in the 200m, also, even though she was just eighth. But that’s not her strength.” The Scarborough resident attends North York’s Loretto Abbey Catholic Secondary School. At the OFSAA championships this past spring, she finished just out of the medals in fourth place (and ninth in the 200m).

Two Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) senior teams from Toronto who both finished atop their respective divisions will see their first post season action this weekend after enjoying an opening round bye last weekend. The Scarborough-based Toronto Thunder host the Cumberland Panthers, tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Birchmount Stadium. The defending OVFL

champion Thunder finished up the regular season at 7-1 (the Cumberland Panthers were 7-2). And the North York-based Metro Toronto Wildcats host the Myers Riders this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. at Esther Shiner Stadium. The Wildcats finished up at 6-2 (while the Myers Riders were 6-3). Toronto also boasts a third team – the Etobicoke Eagles,

based out of Centennial Stadium, who missed the playoffs with a 3-5-1 record. The OVFL provides competition at three levels - varsity, junior and bantam. None of the three Toronto clubs advanced teams to the second round of the playoffs. In junior competition, the Metro Junior Wildcats (4-5) lost last weekend’s opening round playoff game 37-29 to

Myers (7-2). In bantam competition, the Toronto Thunder (4-5) were edged 20-14 by the Kingston Grenadiers (5-4). Denver Broncos The Toronto Thunder has three former players suiting up in the playoffs, all of whom also attended

Scarborough’s Birchmount Park Collegiate, who are competing for Canada in the London Olympics – sprinters Aaron Brown and Justyn and Ian Warner. Another alumni is Orlando Franklin who, as a right tackle on the Denver Broncos offensive line, is hoping to spend the upcoming NFL season protecting new signing Payton Manning

after spending last season protecting Tim Tebow. A Metro Toronto Wildcats alumni is Shawn Gore, a receiver with the defending Grey Cup champion B.C. Lions who carted in the trophy to his former Don Mills Collegiate high school this past spring. For more on the league, visit www.ovflontario.com

MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com A Toronto MP started a set of nation-wide discussions Tuesday meant to help set the numbers of immigrants who will be allowed into Canada next year. Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney must choose both the level of immigration and mixture of those admitted, including “economic-class” investors, refugees and “family-class” immigrants joining relatives in Canada. Chungsen Leung, one of Kenney’s parliamentary secretaries, oversaw a stakeholders meeting at the ministry’s Toronto offices to launch this year’s consultation. He will soon be at other sessions in Windsor and Vancouver. The ministry acknowledges “competing visions and diverging goals” for immigration to Canada, which the Conservative government says since 2006 has been at its “highest sustained levels” ever. The government must ask how to use immigration to sustain its economy, attract investors and recruit the skilled workers required to grow Canadian biotechnology, aquaculture or other promising industries, Leung said. “These are never easily answered questions,” the MP for Willowdale added. “We need to position Canada to meet the challenges of the 21st

century against all the other nations around the world.” Changes in the immigration mix have notable effects in cities such as Toronto. Cheung, who also led stakeholder sessions last August in Scarborough and Mississauga, said he was asked this week why the federal government has “stopped” family reunifications through changes in policy. Kenney did declare a two-year “temporary pause” last fall in accepting parent and grandparent familyclass applications, but Cheung said two-year renewable “super visas” the government created can bring older relatives over in months instead of forcing them to wait several years. “What we have done is opened the process wider and faster.” Besides the invited stakeholders – which include settlement agencies, academics, business and labour groups, employers and municipalities – the Conservatives allow comments on immigration policy online. Last year, the ministry noted “a significant difference” in the responses of stakeholders and individuals, with a majority of stakeholders saying immigration levels should be increased or maintained, while “almost half of the individuals were of the belief that levels should be decreased.” The online consultation (www.cic.gc.ca/ english/department/consultations/index. asp) will continue until Aug. 31.
