Residents can hear City of Toronto plans to undo the extensive damage the emerald ash borer is causing to a pair of shoreline parks in Scarborough’s Guildwood area at a meeting tonight. The invasive insect is set to wipe out nearly all of the city’s remaining ash trees within the next few years, and losses along the Scarborough Bluffs in areas heavily planted with ash will be particularly devastating. “Many ash trees have died in the past year and tree removals are ongoing on streets and in parks,” said a release from the city this week.

Both Guild Park and South Marine Park were identified as “priority sites” in the fight against ash borer, and management plans were developed to removed hazardous dead ash, then replant other trees to replace them and remove invasive plants that may spread when the ash are gone. Residents can hear about these plans and about tree removals planned for the rest of this winter, which may cause temporary park and trail closures, during a public meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight at Cedarbrook Community Centre on Eastpark Boulevard.

The City of Toronto will redraw the map for its recreation services this year, making swimming and other activities free for everyone in many new parts of Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke. The expansion of free recreation programs into these areas is the latest stage in what could be called a strategy for social inclusion in post-amalgamation Toronto, St. Paul’s Councillor Joe Mihevc said. “It’s our attempt to say, ‘Everyone has the right to play, and to get fit,’” said Mihevc, a member of city hall’s Community Development and Recreation Committee, which approved the move last month. “When you can’t afford recreation, then you’re not a full participant in the life of the city.” Besides having a Welcome Policy, which can subsidize recreation programs at one location for low-income residents who apply, the city has maintained 23 priority centres where programs are free for all residents. The priority centres were meant to include community centres serving parts of Toronto

with a high percentage of lowincome families, but most of them are in the former city itself, where recreation before amalgamation had been free. Scarborough, for instance, has no priority centres apart from Oakridge Community Recreation Centre near the old city boundary, and communities with some of the amalgamated city’s highest low-income percentages, such as Thorncliffe Park and Scarborough Village, weren’t near the free city programs. Toronto’s Recreation Service Plan showed current centres serve less than half the city’s low-income areas, according to 2006 data. That’s set to change with the addition of 16 more centres offering free recreation – eight in Scarborough, four in North York, three in Etobicoke and one each in East York and York – that should cover all the low-income neighbourhoods. >>>NUMBER, page 19 ‡ Papa Dom

Nurses group raises concerns over staff levels at Centenary

ON ICE: While the recent cold snap may not have been to everyone’s liking, it certainly made for some great ice conditions on the Rouge Marsh. Here, Christopher Schnurr takes a shot on net after getting a pass from his dad, Al, during a day of pond hockey Saturday.

Local pub helped out residents left without power during recent ice storm A Scarborough pub and restaurant opened its doors on the only day it’s normally closed to serve free hot meals to residents left in the cold. That day was Dec. 25; the restaurant was the Black Dog Pub at 87 Island Rd. “So many people in our neighbourhood were without power. They would’ve missed Christmas turkey dinners,” said restaurant owner George Voulgaris. “We cooked eight big turkeys...They were done by 2

at the veterinary clinic, said many clinic staff have relatives who went through the typhoon “so it really does hit home; it’s not just a jar that had money in it.” Police said the man entered the clinic, on Kingston Road near Victoria Park Avenue, around 2:30 a.m. Dec. 27.

‘Ratios unsafe’ The ONA, which represents registered nurses, says such patients have complex medical needs and that half the RNs and registered practical nurses on the unit have been replaced by personal support workers, “leaving the nurse-to-patient ratios unsafe, unmanageable and dangerous for patients.” Because PSWs aren’t qualified to perform certain tasks, such as changing a dressing, which are done by RNs, the remaining nurses find completing their duties difficult “because they’re being pulled in so many directions,” ONA first vice-president Vicki

A hearing this week at the Rouge Valley Health System in Scarborough will determine whether or not the hospital has reduced the number of registered nurses in a Centenary campus unit to an unsafe level. An Independent Assessment Committee has begun examining conditions at the post-acute care unit at the request of the Ontario Nurses’ Association, which says it has tried but failed to resolve staffing concerns with the hospital. Patients in the unit are said to be receiving complex continuing care – sometimes called alternate level of care – because most are waiting to go home or to another facility.

McKenna said Monday. “It’s not right for the patients and their families, and that’s why they’re pursuing this.” David Brazeau, a Rouge Valley spokesperson, said the hospital introduced a new model of care to the unit in April 2011 that it believes makes the best use of staff resources. Each patient on the unit is assigned different types of health professionals in a “collaborative team effort,” Brazeau said. “Together, they provide excellent care.”

Oct. 27 election: Ward races deserve residents’ attention

Write us

T

he heat is on. The race to the Oct. 27 municipal election is going to be complex, and hit residents where they live – in their wards. The high-profile race always focuses on who will become the mayor of the City of Toronto. With former Scarborough councillor and David Miller-era budget chief David Soknacki filing his paper on Monday, the first big name to challenge Rob Ford for the seat is in. Let the sound-bites begin! However, the mayor is just one vote on council. He or she leads an agenda, but the real races - the races that matter most – will be fought in the individual 44 wards across the city. In 2014, there are many issues that need addressing across the city – and each ward has its own unique issues, as well as a shared vision for the city. our view Knowing the people vying to fill your ward’s council seat – Opportunity their values and platforms – is to dig deep into extremely important. Knowing that they have their own opincommunity ions, and will not be on a ‘ mayoral ticket’, following the lead of those who would be mayor. It is through these 44 councillors decisions impacting your local parks, streetscapes, safety and business concerns are voiced and brought to the bigger council chamber. Also, one councillor can impact the thinking of others – sometimes from clear across the city. Could a councillor in Ward 2 (Etobicoke North) impact a decision in Ward 36 (Scarborough Southwest) or Ward 27 (Toronto Centre-Rosedale)? Certainly. Residents should meet, find common ground on important issues such as development – the city isn’t getting any smaller, and development and intensification are but two examples of pressures every resident will feel. Then there are city-wide issues such as transit, where knowing how your candidate sits on the issue is important for both your ward and the economic viability of the city. The 2014 municipal election is an opportunity for residents across the city to dig deep into their communities, attend all-candidate debates, and pose questions that need answering. The glamorous nature of the mayor’s race will take on a life of its own, but it’s the grassroots, nuts and bolts races in each ward that truly deserve the attention of each and every Torontonian.

column

Walking a thin line at the hair salon Well, it looks like I’m a tad overdue for a haircut. Ah, whom I trying to kid? Truth be told, it’s actually several tads. I should have gone a long time ago. What can I say? It’s the thinning hair thing. Putting off salon visits kinda goes with the territory. Of course, thinning is just the politically correct term. Truth is, evaporating is more like it. David Copperfield couldn’t make mine disappear any quicker. (I mean it. He tried in one of his shows in Vegas. You can look it up on YouTube.) Which brings me back to the premise of this column. When you have thinning hair, you avoid getting it cut. Your rationale is simple: why pay a professional to lop off what few measly follicles you have left when they’ll inevitably disappear on their own – for free. Alas, you have to get it trimmed as regularly as those who are not thinning challenged. You have no

jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY choice. When what little thinning hair you have gets long, it makes you look sloppy, unkempt, absent-minded professor-ish. And if you wait too long to get it shorn, you may spook the neighbour’s dog and face the prospect of having the pup snap your scary picture and put it on his Facebook page to get even. So you get it done eventually and that’s when things get really embarrassing. You see, when a guy like me with thinning hair slinks into a salon, he can feel all the energy get sucked right out of the room. Not so when a hunk with a mane like a young Antonio Banderas sashays in through the doors. The moment a Banderas clone arrives, the hairstylists fight over him like it was a 20-girl Battle Royale in

Wrestlemania. And then the lucky winner does the samba to a Gloria Estefan medley while cutting his hair, pausing only occasionally to drool. Meanwhile, the poor soul who draws the short straw and has to do mine grumbles to herself all the way through, stopping only intermittently to hum Peggy Lee’s Is That All There is. And that, sadly, is the good news. The bad news is what happens after she’s done. She makes a huge production over what my hair looks like from behind. She gives me a gigantic mirror to hold and spins me around and around and around in the chair so I can get more angles of the back of my head than those 50 camera crews give you of the winning touchdown at the Super Bowl. The only thing missing is slo-mo, instant replay and me getting my head doused with Gatorade. Hey, my hair looks look

great from behind after she’s done, no question. But it never thins in the back so it always looks pretty good back there. Besides, where else do you check out the back of your head except in a salon? The rest of the world sees only the front and it’s the front that’s the problem here and it’s doing what it always does, thinning away like there’s no tomorrow. It was thinning when I dropped into the salon. It was thinning while it was being shampooed. It was thinning while it was being cut. It was thinning while it was being blow-dried. It was thinning while it was being styled. And to add insult to injury? All that spinning around in the chair makes it thin twice as fast. I tell ya, I can’t catch a break.

Choose peace in a dangerous time Trees and hydro wires don’t mix To the editor: We live in a dangerous time; a time when religious differences, economic disparities and political ideologies are threatening to rip apart the fabric of humanity. Anger and violence is rampant in a world where individuals and nations have replaced reason with ignorance. Now more than ever, peace seems to be an elusive dream that continues to haunt us. What is peace and how can we achieve it? We may think of peace as a pact or agreement between countries or as some kind of truce between warring factions. We place our belief in peace in the form of military armaments or in papers signed by government leaders or even in economic treaties. In doing so, we materialize peace into something tangible, specific and quantifiable. In short, we have reduced the concept of peace into something we can see, or touch, or even buy. Perhaps it is because of this reason that real and lasting

peace continues to elude us. For peace, like love, or faith, or hope, is that which springs from within our individual consciousness. Its definition is not linked to a particular god, or religion or ideology. It is realized not by that which is extrinsic to us, but by embarking on a spiritual quest deep within ourselves to find a stillness of the mind and the spirit. Peace is the awakening of an inner tranquillity that gives us strength and clarity in an otherwise ever-changing and ever challenging world. Peace therefore begins with the individual and not with the society. For societies and hence, for nations to become truly peaceful, it is imperative that we, as individuals, first seek the true meaning of peace within ourselves. Only then can we hope to lead more tolerant and fulfilling lives within our communities and with our fellow human beings throughout the world. Just as anger and misunderstanding can manifest into

cacophony and violence, so too can peace manifest into harmony and understanding. A peaceful individual is the precursor to a peaceful family, society, and ultimately, to a peaceful nation. In a time of increasing intolerance and militarization in many parts of the world, let us each make a common resolution to actively seek out the meaning of peace in our lives. Let us stop blaming each other for our problems and start listening and becoming more accepting of our differences. Let us stop placing our hope for peace in guns, and bombs and war. Each of us has a choice to make. We can choose to continue down the path of violence and ignorance. Or we can choose to seek out a new path that leads us in the direction of peace and reason. For the sake of our children, our future and our planet, let’s choose wisely and effect positive change in the world. Let’s choose peace. Jeevan Bhagwat

To the editor: This may not be the best time to mention this but until city planners stop planting trees under the hydro lines, we are going to have problems with them as they grow. Has anyone else noticed the hack job Hydro gives the mature trees that are growing along the boulevards of our fair city? If there are going to be conflicts, why not plant these expensive resources some-

where else? There are lots of better places, sometimes just across the road. Over the past couple of years at least half of these newly planted trees have been planted directly under the hydro lines. This is stupid, inexcusable and a massive waste of our money. Is this some kind of bizarre make-work project for the city forestry employees and its subcontractors? If the people of Scarborough

would like to look at a few examples of what I am talking about drive south on McCowan or Brimley roads from Ellesmere Avenue. What has been done to many of these trees is shameful and it looks ridiculous. Once again our tax dollars are hard at work. Chris Belfontaine

No murders last year in 43 Division It’s now official: Toronto police’s 43 Division in southeast Scarborough recorded no homicides in 2013. That’s a big change from the p re v i o u s ye a r when the division was dealing with the worst shooting in the city’s history: a gunfight at a Danzig Street townhouse complex that left two dead and two dozen injured. “After the Danzig shooting we really looked at how 43 Division is structured and they came up with the idea of having the neighbourhood safety unit,” said Const. Randall Arsenault, 43 Division’s community engagement officer. “That was a brand new unit, and those officers, their job is to

be out there and engage, engage, engage.” A total of six people were murdered within the boundaries of 43 Division in 2012.

The man charged with murder in the Boxing Day death of a Scarborough woman was also charged with murder more than a decade ago in the death of a man killed with a meat cleaver. In July 2002, Patrick Wai Leung Lee, now 62, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to four years, 11 months in prison in the slaying of Hing Kuen Tsang, 38, a loan shark to whom Lee owed $48,000.

At 11:30 p.m. on Boxing Day, police were called to a building on Alton Towers Circle for an unknown trouble. To Nu “Sandy” Hua, 64, a retired driving instructor, was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy found she died of “sharp force injuries.” Lee, a retired real estate agent, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder on Dec. 30.

the mirror looks at politicians’ actions during ice storm

our exclusive look

Councillors get mixed reviews Communication strategies during ice storm, power outage questioned

MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com The ice storm before Christmas was one to remember, and in an election year, Scarborough residents may remember whether or not they heard from their local politicians when things were at their darkest. Tens of thousands of area households went without power for days, some were dark for a full week, and it’s hard to guess how much information got or didn’t get to residents who needed it. But politicians who used Twitter – such as city councillors Paul Ainslie, Michelle B e ra rd i n e t t i a n d Ga r y Crawford in Scarborough’s hard-hit south – generally drew praise from constituents who could read their posts. Twitter updates For them, Twitter offered frequent updates and, particularly in the later stages of storm recovery, specifics on which warming centres were open in Scarborough and where Toronto Hydro crews were working. Politicians who didn’t use the social media platform, such as Scarborough East Councillor Ron Moeser, have heard complaints about it from their constituents.

Staff photo/IRVIN MINTZ

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is joined by a number of Scarborough MPPs and Toronto Hydro staff as they survey the damage to electrical lines on Bush Drive in the Old Kingston and Morrish roads area of Highland Creek during the ice storm.

“I’ve always been a returnthe-telephone-call type of guy,” Moeser said Monday, but added he may try a Twitter account this year. After the storm, Moeser said, he visited some seniors to see if they were all right and reported fallen trees that had blocked sidewalks and roads. “I did a lot of driving through the community and a lot of people knew my home number.” Some residents of his ward, however, were asking where Moeser was. One, Tracy Forsyth, visited his

constituency office in Port Union and found the power on, but the place “locked up tight, no signs in the window (on) how to reach him.” Forsyth wanted the Port Union Community Centre opened as a warming centre, but this didn’t happen, she said in a letter, adding people in the ward, if they found out about it, were told to seek shelter at the Toronto Police 43 Division station, which was at capacity, and then on Dec. 27 at Heron Park Community Centre “while the lights flashed and blinked

about upcoming community events at the Port Union Centre. Couldn’t Moeser push for this (centre) to be opened sooner?” Moeser said that question should wait for a review councillors will do on “where the gaps were” in the city’s storm response. He said he staffed the constituency office himself but conceded it was closed on some days, because he gave his staff time off between the holidays and then caught the flu. Still, Moeser said his work answering phones never

stopped. Though its main aim will be to ask the province to pay for part of the storm cleanup, a special Toronto council meeting tomorrow is the first chance for city politicians to talk about what went right or wrong after the storm. Some said the cr isis showed communication needs to improve, particularly because people, even councillors, weren’t given specific information on where utility crews were working or when power would come back on. “I didn’t know more than the general public,” Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande said. Ainslie criticized Hydro for having an “antiquated” online map displaying outages by postal code instead of by street. Moeser also complained about a lack of precision from city authorities. “All they could do was give me a guess” on when power would return, he said, adding residents were unhappy when the guesses didn’t pan out. Del Grande said he didn’t want the recovery to be a political battleground, but having both a mayor and deputy mayor making announcements, “it was confusing as to who was calling

the shots. Who ultimately is the quarterback?” The city has to clearly state who’s in charge, so there can be one message coming from one place, said Del Grande. Several Scarborough councillors criticized fellow politicians for appearing at “photo ops” with utility crews or residents, some singling out a visit by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and local MPPs to Moeser’s ward.

It was confusing as to who was calling the shots. Who ultimately is the quarterback? – Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande

Scarborough-Rouge River Councillor Chin Lee said he went to warming centres but didn’t want to get on television or have his picture taken, as some politicians did. Opinions differed on the “photo ops,” Lee said. “Some people got upset. Others were very happy to see their leaders there, showing concern for everyone.” Like Moeser and Del Grande, Lee wasn’t using social media, but said he sent updates to those on his email distribution list.

Minister apologizes to residents who stood in line for grocery gift cards A m e m b e r o f P re m i e r Kathleen Wynne’s government apologized this week to everyone in Toronto who had to stand in line to receive a gift card for groceries after the ice storm. “It should not have happened, especially at the end, when there were no cards left,” Ontario Community Safety Minister Madeleine Meilleur said in an interview. But Meilleur, whose ministry was responsible for distributing the cards to the city’s Ontario Works offices, said she does not regret the program, “because we were

able to help 8,500 families.” Frustration over the distribution of the cards was especially high in Scarborough where hundreds stood in line at Ontario Works offices for cards that had already been distributed. Scarborough frustration As Scarborough North Employment and Social Services on Milner Avenue prepared to open at 8:30 a.m. last Thursday, a security guard told a crowd of several hundred gathered in the lobby below to leave unless they had already been

registered for a card. Even this did not make the situation clear to some, who said they had registered on a previous visit Tuesday for a card but, unlike others, did not have a slip of paper with a number to prove it. Other Ontario Works offices in Scarborough were also turning people away by mid-morning last Thursday. O p p o s i t i o n M P Ps i n Toronto called the gift card distribution a hastily thoughtout scheme done more for Wynne’s benefit than for the people who spent hours in lines last week and often

were turned away emptyhanded. That result was “worse than useless” because it left so many frustrated, said Parkdale-High Park MPP Cheri DiNovo, adding the program, by tapping into a “huge and ongoing” need for food in Toronto, revealed the Liberal government doesn’t understand the extent of poverty in the city. A New Democrat, DiNovo said she appreciates the people and companies that contributed funds for cards, but many who arrived at the 15 city offices were turned away and large numbers

of the neediest, including seniors, could not have stood in lines anyway. ‘Electioneering’ “It’s a pretty cynical kind of electioneering” for the Wynne government, considering a provincial election is expected this year, DiNovo added. Doug Holyday, the city’s only Progressive Conservative MPP, said the idea for the program apparently came from the grocery chains and was a good one, but the distribution was done poorly. “They did it so quickly they botched the program,” recall-

ing how cameras had captured Wynne delivering food baskets to Toronto homes. “When the (gift card) distribution fell apart, you haven’t seen her since.” Meilleur acknowledged problems with the Toronto distribution, including not having all the gift cards ready when they were needed. “We were not expecting to have such an interest,” she said. “Actually, we got four times what we were expecting.” – Mike Adler

Frequent mayoral candidate Kevin Clarke will not run this year Scarborough resident announces his retirement from public politics MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Kevin Clarke, a formerly homeless Scarborough resident who has run to be Toronto’s mayor or for Ontario legislature seats many times over the past two decades, says he is officially retired

from public politics due to a recurring health condition. “I will assure you this decision was not made lightly for the greatest joy I have received in life is defending the needs of all,” said Clarke, the leader of the People’s Party of Ontario, in a recent release.

HOMELESS Clarke, who was a student teacher in Scarborough and sold cars before becoming homeless for several years, said he was always motivated by “loving kindness” toward others. “Poor health or not, that

Tree debris clean-up Toronto’s city-wide tree debris removal started Friday, January 3, 2014 and is expected to take approximately eight weeks, weather permitting. The City will haul away all tree branches from front yards and roadsides and will include those that have fallen on private property if they are less than 15 cm (six inches) in diameter and have been taken to the curb. Please neatly stack limbs/ branches with butt ends towards the road for City pick-up. Place wood debris at the front edge of your property as close to the sidewalk or road as possible without blocking either. City crews will not collect large limbs (more than 15 cm or six inches in diameter) from private trees that have fallen on private property. Property owners should contact a private contractor for this. A City permit is not required to remove damaged or downed trees that are hazardous, however many trees can be saved with proper care and pruning. For residents that live in the Asian long-horned beetle (ALHB) quarantine area in Etobicoke, City crews and private contractors will dispose of this debris in an appropriate manner. Residents are advised not to take this wood out of the Federal quarantine area. Check toronto.ca/trees for more information. You may monitor the debris removal progress by checking a detailed map on the City’s web site at toronto.ca.

mission I will carry on, seeking public office or not,” the release said. Clarke, who often spoke about meeting the needs of children, the poor, and homeless people during his campaigns, started seeking provincial office in the mid-1990s and last stood as

a candidate in the Toronto Centre riding byelection in December. SINCE 2000 Known for shouting his convictions and drawing his name and slogans on sidewalks in chalk, he ran for

mayor of Toronto in every municipal election held in the city since 2000. As candidate registration for the mayoral race in 2014 began last Thursday, however, Clarke said he and his party would back a new candidate, Troy J. Young.

Olivia Williams makes a save for the Scarborough Sharks as they face the Leaside Wildcats in the 30th annual Scarborough Sharks New Years Classic hockey tournament Friday afternoon. Leaside won the game 2-0.

Sharks win five medals at hockey tournament The Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association managed to top last year’s results at their 30th annual New Year’s Classic hockey tournament which ran Jan. 3 to 5. The tournament attracted 120 teams split into seven age divisions (novice, atom, peewee, bantam, midget, intermediate and senior) at the top four skill levels (AA, A, BB, B). That all translated into 18 championship games on Sunday with the host Scarborough Sharks organization winning three of them and settling for silver in the other two finals they were represented in. That improves upon last year’s results in which they were also represented in five finals, earning two gold and three silver medals. Here are the Scarborough Sharks gold medal winners: PEEWEE BB: the Sharks peewee BB team won the gold medal game 1-0 over Clarence Rockland Lightning after winning their elimination game 2-0 over the Kingston Ice Wolves. In the preliminary round, the Sharks went undefeated with one win (1-0 over the Markham-

Stouffville Stars) and three ties (1-1 with Clarence Rockland Lightning and 0-0 with both the Oakville Hornets and Nepean Wildcats). Amazingly, their brilliant defence and goaltending allowed them to win gold while scoring only five goals in six games! BANTAM B: t h e Scarborough Sharks bantam B team won the gold medal game 2-1 over the Ottawaarea Kanata Rangers. Both teams finished the preliminary round with three wins and a tie but Kanata got the tiebreaker nod for first place. Scarborough, however, won its elimination game (second vs. third) 3-1 over the Smith Falls Cubs. In the preliminary round Scarborough’s three wins were against North York Storm 3-2, Smith Falls Cubs 1-0 and Durham West Lightning 3-1) along with a 1-1 tie versus the Etobicoke Dolphins. SENIOR A: the Scarborough Sharks women’s senior A team won the gold medal game 4-1 over the Sudbury Lady Wolves. The two teams finished up the preliminary round with identical records of three wins and one tie, with the 3-3 tie being against each

other. (Scarborough’s three wins were 5-4 over Oshawa Lady Generals and 6-0 over both Timmins and Markham Stoufville. Sudbury, however, got the first-place bye while Scarborough won its elimination game 2-1 over Durham West Lightning. Silver medals The two Sharks finalists were: MIDGET BB: the Sharks midget B ‘Cole’ team settled for the silver medal with a 2-1 loss to Wilmot Wolverines in a battle of undefeated teams (Scarborough two wins, two ties; Wilmot one win, three ties; each won their semifinal contest). INTERMEDIATE A: the Sharks intermediate A team settled for the silver medal with a 3-2 loss to the Whitby Wolves. Scarborough had finished in first place with three wins (including a 2-1 win over Whitby) and a tie; while Whitby, besides its loss to Scarborough, won all three of its other preliminary round games.

Sonata recommends all beginner students take group lessons or ensemble classes to enrich their early music learning experience. As they begin to understand the basic musical principles, they are then encouraged to branch or‘stream’into other areas of musical interest and/or proficiency. As students build an appreciation and enjoyment of music, private lessons are an excellent way to train for technical proficiency and performance.

The Clay Emporium is an artistic haven i n t h e h e a r t o f S c a r b o ro u g h w h e re adults and kids are invited to get lost in creativity. Whether you’ve never picked up a paint brush before, or were born with one in hand, you can choose from a wide variety of ceramic pieces and evoke the artist within to create a one-of-a-kind piece. The Clay Emporium provides the glazes, the brushes and even the techniques. Once you’ve created your materpiece,

they heat the ceramic in a kiln. You come back in a few days to pick it up, then it’s yours to keep. As the cold winds continue to blow outside, cozy up indoors with the kids or a group of friends to take part in workshops. Starting the week of January 20th, children art classes begin. Classes for 5 to 8 year olds take place on Wednesdays from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and classes for 9 to 12 year olds take place Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. t0 5:00 p.m.

Number of Scarborough centres included in plan >>>from page 1 They won’t, however, be called priority centres anymore. Toronto Council voted in 2012 to call them something else, because since 1999 people “have expressed concern that the term ‘priority centre’ can contribute to negative perceptions of the area where these community

centres are located,” a report last month said, suggesting they be known instead as “community centres where programs are free.” Debated for years City councillors have debated for years on the extent recreational programs should be paid from

the “common pot” or by the individuals who use them, said Mihevc, who favours the former approach. “No one questions the right of anybody to go into any library at any time,” he argued. What council will decide later this month is whether the expansion of free programs will start, as currently

budgeted, after Labour Day in September, or earlier, as the committee had wanted. Making programs free at the 16 new centres after Canada Day would cost just over $1 million more this year, said Mihevc. The city plans on continuing the Welcome Policy but expects to spend $1 less on it each year after the expan-

sion. It also plans to wait 10 years before reviewing the no-fee status of the original 23 priority centres. A group called Community Recreation For All said the city shouldn’t start charging fees at those centres even if surrounding neighbourhoods contain fewer low-income residents than they once

did. “As the city intentionally builds mixed-income neighbourhoods, it must ensure that these developments do not result in service loss and cater only to people with high incomes,” the group said last year in a letter.
