Reasons to Ride a Bike in T.O. Bicycle sharing program grows at UTSC MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Seeing a bicycle painted an “ungodly colour of yellow” – in one administrator’s phrase – means a University of Toronto Scarborough student is exploring the area.

Residents in the area of the campus at Military Trail and Ellesmere Road can expect to see more of the distinctive rides as more bicycle trails open in Scarborough and BikeShare gains popularity on the campus. The small-scale program

has changed hands since it started in 2007 but it lends bicycles to students at an unbeatable price: free. BikeShare started as a partnership between the Scarborough Campus Students’ Union and a student >>>BIKE, page 19

Shooting coverage hurting image of Scarborough: local BIA boss MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Scarborough’s image has suffered because of the media’s “misleading” way of labelling the Danzig Street shooting a “Scarborough” crime, says the director of a local business improvement area. “As was the case for far too many years, media refer to this crime happening ‘in Scarborough’ – not ‘on Danzig, near Morningside (Avenue), (or) in the east end,’” Ernie McCullough said Tuesday, July 24, in a letter to Toronto news organizations. It’s a serious problem, said

McCullough, whose Sheppard East Village BIA is far from the scene of last Monday’s streetparty shooting which took the lives of a 14-year-old girl and a 23-year-old man and saw 23 others suffer gunshot wounds. “Experience shows that a misleading media characterization of Scarborough can become public perception – with a negative impact on citizens and businesses alike,” he said. “If this misleading media image is not corrected, it will impede the east end from continuing to develop and >>>COUNCILLOR, page 5

Arson suspected in fires at expropriated homes Two Scarborough homes slated for demolition this week were set ablaze Sunday night. Fire crews were called to Chesterton Shores near Lawrence Avenue and Port Union Road for two homes on fire at 8:37 p.m. on July 22. “When we got there, the buildings were fully involved,” Toronto Fire Services District Chief Stephan Powell said. “The fire was coming

MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com The Danzig Street shooting is a “spillover” from fatherless homes, lack of parenting, unfriendly attitudes toward youths and other social problems, a meeting for residents of the area was told. “All of these things are the reason we’re dealing with what we’re dealing with right now,” Ann-Marie Moulton, outreach co-ordinator for the Progress Church said at a forum on violence hosted Saturday by Scarborough-Guildwood MP John McKay. “If you’re a father who have never been there for your children, you are the problem. If you’re in a community where you’ve never talked to your neighbours, you are a problem,” said Moulton, whose church serves children and youth in the KingstonGalloway neighbourhood. “If you’re in this room and you’ve never encouraged a young person, but you judged them and you criticized them, you are the problem.” Others who spoke to the meeting at St. Martin de Porres Parish Church lived near the July 16 mass shooting at a block party on Danzig Street in the Morningside and Lawrence avenues area which killed 14-yearold Shyanne Charles of Scarborough 23-year-old Joshua Yasay of Ajax, and wounded 23 others Some blamed lenient judges or a lack of role models at school for gun violence. Others said a lack of jobs and a lack of opportunities to start businesses other than a gang contributes to the problem. William Deschamps, who lives across street from Danzig’s townhouse complex where the violence occurred, said friends there agree the townhouses need better lighting and at least three security cameras. When cameras were installed in his building, they cut crime dramatically, said Deschamps, who offered to install them in the complex himself if it would convince the landlord, Toronto Community Housing, to act. “The community will do whatever

it can to raise money for this,” he added. Rob Cairns said Toronto has “judges that don’t want to enforce the Criminal Code the way it should be” and that must stop. But though he said the gang problem was “worldwide,” Cairns said part of the solution were programs for youth in the community and a partnership between residents and the police. “We have a good community. We need to strengthen it and it will get better in the long run,” he said. Mike McKenzie of the Scarborough Village Neighbourhood Association said there isn’t enough community space to run necessary programs for children and youth. As a community volunteer, he said, he sees children as young as five who are “stressed” and lack confidence. “If you feel like a nobody as a five-year-old, so help you when you become 16.” Churches, temples and mosques should get their members to march through city neighbourhoods to “say visually we’ve had enough,” MacKenzie said. “You need to send the message to the youths that you’re there for the bad ones as well as the ones that are in the church.” Others in the church hall at Morningside and Lawrence avenues said current employment programs weren’t enough to get interested local youths the jobs they want. Moulton said employment on its own would not stop violence, but “mentorship, leadership” and friendlier police could. “Of course youth are acting like fools, but there’s a reason for that. They are hurting just like anybody else,” she said. Allen Brown, a retired lawyer who volunteers to tutor young people who dropped out of school, called for a limited gun amnesty so weapons could be turned in with no questions asked. It’s important for parents to know where their children are “because if they don’t they will be surprised by the company they keep,” he said.

Police seek photos, videos from party Police have established a hotline for people with information on the mass shooting on Danzig Street. Police also continue to appeal for people with photos and/or videos from the July 16 block party where an exchange of gunfire killed Shyanne Charles, 14, and Joshua Yasay, 23,

and wounded 23 others. Last Thursday, 19-year-old Nahom Tsegazab was charged with reckless discharge of a firearm. Anyone with information is asked to call the tip line at 416-808-4330 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

An eight-car motorcade carrying Prime Minister Stephen Harper turned into the long driveway of 43 Division. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his brother Doug Ford had already arrived in different sportutility vehicles. Out by the curb at Lawrence Avenue East, people gathered. They didn’t get a good look at either leader, but most of them, there by design or chance, had something to say about last week’s mass shooting on Danzig Street and what the leaders meeting inside should do about it. Rosemarie Riley came to say she supports more funding for Toronto Police. Her brother Kevin Williams was 32 in March 2010 when someone shot him in the head in his apartment building on Lawrence, not far to the west around Galloway Road. Williams was a quiet man and no one had a reason to kill him; he left a daughter who is now 16, Riley said. “My brother is dead but I’m his voice,” she added and said she spoke for others who are mourning a loss and feeling frustration their loved one’s killers are still roaming the city. “I do want to say to the murderers listening: You will be caught.” Chris Bouchard, who lives on Morningside Avenue near the Danzig shooting scene, was passing out red ribbons as part of a local campaign, endtoviolence.com “to offset fear and show our unity as a community.” The violence hit the area like an act of terrorism, making people afraid to speak out, said Bouchard, who thinks there’s more than one answer to it. Still, he hopes the PM and mayor will ensure the security of the city, provide more youth programs and make sure youths know about them. Vivian Leslie, a crossing guard and retired bus driver, also lives near the shooting and has been a West Hill resident for 40 years. He thought Harper would give a speech. “Why not go into the neighbourhood?” Leslie asked. Though he said he supports mandatory minimum sentences for people caught with illegal guns, Leslie said he thinks the leaders should concentrate on stopping illegal guns from entering Canada and on providing young people with more employment. Nearby, someone calling himself Dan Dan the Garbage Man – a handle neighbourhood people will recognize, he said – maintained he

Community Meeting seeks to find Residents air safety concerns answers in wake of as Harper, Ford meet locally Danzig Street shooting

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mayor Rob Ford met at the 43 Division police station on Lawrence Avenue Tuesday afternoon to discuss recent gun violence in the city.

knows why Danzig erupted in violence. Toronto Community Housing has relocated gang members to areas controlled by different gangs, he said.

‘I have never seen people give more than two cents about this area and now everybody is here trying to fix it.’ Shelley Kaushik, West Hill resident “You’re in the same sandbox (with rival gangs). They don’t play with pails they play with guns,” said Dan Dan, who added he supports more police walking a beat in the neighbourhood and saying hello. “A cop in a car doesn’t do nothing.” On the other side of the driveway, Jeremy Chitan, 21, said he disagrees with the mayor’s view that the city needs more police. “How about we get more youth workers?” he asked. Chitan said a couple of youth workers helped him, but try talking to so-called at-risk youth about police. “Maybe they don’t hate police, but they dislike them.” His father Neals Chitan runs a program called Project Stop and Think objected to Rob Ford’s criticism of such programs last week as “hug-a-thug.” Ford should go to a vulnerable community and try it, said Neals Chitan. “These young boys need a hug. They don’t have dads in their lives.” Amidst all this, Shelly Kaushik, 18, was watching the police station too. The Danzig shooting happened “almost literally in my backyard”

and now her parents don’t want her to walk down Morningside Avenue anymore. She has seen the reputation of Scarborough and Toronto going down the drain, she said. Kaushik said she doesn’t envy the politicians and doesn’t know what she would do in their place, but the attention West Hill is getting made her uneasy. “I have never seen people give more than two cents about this area and now everybody is here trying to fix it,” said Kaushik. “It was a quiet neighbourhood, it was a peaceful neighbourhood. Now I don’t know what it will be.” It is as though the neighbourhood has to prove itself, she said. “It really is a test of our strength. It’s really a chance for us to redefine ourselves.” Inside, the prime minister and mayor were photographed shaking hands, though not by the media outside. Neither man so much as waved to the spectators as they rolled away. A man put on a T-shirt that read, “Help us so that we may help them,” then just as quickly slipped it off. Ford later issued a statement saying the meeting had been productive. “This is the beginning of ongoing work to make sure we have the tools in place to better prevent gang violence and protect the public from criminals,” the mayor said. After watching the politicians exit, Desmond Greaves, another resident, predicted two months from now everybody will forget the Danzig shooting until the media rushes to cover another act of gun violence. “That’s the definition of madness,” he said, “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” n For more news on the shooting, please see page 22.

Balance needs of all cyclists L

ike many issues in Toronto, cycling and where it takes place has become one pitting the political left and right against each other. They are battling it out on the floor of council, and sadly also on the streets of our city. As North York Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong told Toronto Community News in our special feature on cycling in the city on pages 18 and 19 of today’s newspaper, the main bone of contention is lack of space on Toronto’s streets. “Because there’s a limited amount of geography, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists are all competing for the our view same space,” he explained. And nobody seems willing to Recreational give up any ground. There are two kinds of cyclists and commuter in Toronto, those who ride to commute and those who ride for cyclists must recreation. What we don’t want to see is the political battles ending be considered up costing either groups of riders. We need good and safe cycling routes along our streets for those who depend on their bikes to move around. We also need recreational runs that all can enjoy at a relaxed pace. And we don’t need one at the expense of the other. As part of our feature today, we decided to take a look at nine bike rides that recreational riders across Toronto could enjoy. All these rides are on bike paths, separate from city roads and free of cars for almost their entire routes. These are runs that both experienced riders and those who are new to cycling can enjoy by themselves or with their families, confident that they won’t have to negotiate through busy traffic or dangerous intersections. Hopefully readers will try one of these rides for themselves. There are some great choices and they highlight much of Toronto’s natural, and far too often hidden, beauty. Valleys make up so much of our city’s landscape, and planners have not been shy about running cycling (and pedestrian) paths along them. There are some beautiful runs through Taylor Creek, along the Don River and Highland Creek that have riders thinking they are miles away from Canada’s largest city. The featured rides also focus on the close connection between the city and Lake Ontario. While it is not yet possible to ride along the lake from one end of Toronto to the other only on a bike path, large sections are accessible. There are no shortages of great, safe rides in the city and we encourage our readers to try one of the runs we’ve highlighted today. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Canada has duty to protect its citizens To the editor: Re: ‘Khadr should stay in jail,’ Letters, July 12. I’m responding to Dave Bottoms’ letter, which essentially rehashes the arguments of the right for continuing the unconscionable treatment of Omar Khadr. Bottoms ends his letter advocating that Khadr remain in jail with: “even if he committed his crimes at 15 years old.” There is an international moral principle that has surrounded this case since its inception. A child should not be held accountable for the actions he was forced to commit by those who controlled him. Despite being convicted of a crime, Khadr was a child by any description by any civilized country. American jurists decided to ignore his

status as a child and play hardball, forcing him into a “deal with the devil” to eventually bring his captivity to an end. However, that does not negate our nation’s duty to protect and save one of our children from injustice despite the fact he is now a man. Khadr, at the time of his capture, had bullet wounds in his chest that exited through his back and required months of rehabilitation during which time he was subjected to continuous interrogation. The country that did this to him was a signatory to the Geneva Conventions. Khadr was 15 years old. In the worst case he should have been awarded the rights of a prisoner of war. The International Criminal Court has just

sentenced Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga to 15 years of imprisonment for his coercion and abuse of thousands of children whom he made into soldiers in a murderous rebellion. Many of these children were forced to execute captives and in some cases, family. His sentence is mild considering the death toll in that war, but possibly political sensitivities limited his sentence. Khadr’s sentence was eight years on top of the eight years he’d already been held in captivity. Khadr is an unknown entity at this time, but he deserves the chance any Canadian has – to live out his life in peace and to make his way through the world to the best of his abilities. Les Hamilton

To the editor: Re: ‘Things would have been different if Scarborough boy had Anglo name,’ Letters, July 5. The letter supporting Omar Khadr the “Scarborough resident” from Keith Robson made me pause and think about why this “Scarborough resident” was over there in the first place. Who and what was he fighting for while he was there? Was it to help liberate his people from that evil darkness that had befallen them or was he there to help encourage the regime to hold more daily public executions in the football stadium? Was he there to help oppress the female population who suffered mutilations and stonings on the whim of the local religious leaders? Was he there to help terrorize the population into submission and to back the policies of fear and ignorance? respect adopted country His family came to Canada for a reason. They should be able to at least respect the wishes of the people of their adopted country and the flag their son is trying to wrap around himself for protection. There is a lot of pride behind that flag. That pride was earned fighting oppression and evil during two world wars and in Korea. I don’t like my flag to be used as a flag of convenience by people who think little of this country. It is people like Khadr who use their dual citizenship to get themselves out of trouble. That is when they finally decide to call themselves Canadians. Chris Belfontaine

>>>from page 1 better meet the needs of over half a million Torontonians who live and work there.” McCullough is not the first Scarborough resident to object to how media report on crime in Scarborough.

crime scenes in other parts of Toronto by naming the nearest major intersection. Kelly’s solution was to have media companies sign a “fairness protocol” promising they would name intersections, and not Scarborough, when reporting crime east of Victoria Park Avenue. Scarborough Community Council approved the protocol, but no media outlets agreed to sign. The idea was

then defeated at the city’s executive committee. On Friday, Kelly issued a short statement “urging news rooms and reporters to rename the Scarborough shooting to the Danzig shooting,” saying Scarborough residents would appreciate it. “If the shots had been fired in Regent Park,” the councillor added, “then it would have been identified as the site of the Regent Park shooting.”

Clouds over Guildwood The Guild Festival Theatre is performing Clouds Over T.O. until Aug. 12. The production is an adaptation of the ancient Athens comedy, Clouds by Aristophanes, moving the setting of the plot to present-day Toronto. In this version, the anti-hero Fergus finds himself in debt after investing in his son’s passion for race-car driving. The story follows him in his pursuit of dealing with a heavy financial burden and dealing with the general trials and tribulations of urban living. This is the second annual season for the theatre coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the construction of the outdoor Greek Theatre, which incorporates columns saved in 1966 from a Toronto bank building that once stood at Bay and King streets. Performances run Wednesdays to Sundays at 7:30 p.m. Matinees are Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 and children 12 and under are free. For tickets, call 416 220-8174. Sam Moses, top, and Adrian Gorrissen perform at the Greek Theatre during last week’s opening night presentation of, Clouds Over T.O., by the Guild Festival Theatre . Photo/ARMANDO VILLAVONA

Malvern’s Dusk Dances slated for Neilson Park Dusk Dances begins tonight in Malvern.The series of outdoor dance performances will feature sounds and movement at Neilson Park For three consecutive evenings, starting tonight, artists will perform contemporary and traditional dance in the park. One dance team is composed of youth recruits from the Greater Toronto Area. Conroy Wilson 24, is from Malvern. He is self-taught and has been dancing for the past seven years in hip-hop and reggae style. Approached through community members to join the dance group, Wilson had to train for more than a month in a new style of dance. “It’s the first time doing contemporary danc-

ing for me. Basically contemporary is just free movement of your body, expressing the beat or the song,” said Wilson. “It’s a learning experience.” This is the third year for Dusk Dances in Malvern. The performances begin at 7 p.m. Neilson Park is located on the east side of Neilson Road, south of Finch Avenue. Admission is on a pay-what-you-can basis, although $10 is the suggested donation. The funds raised go back into the non-profit, whose mandate includes making professional styles of dance accessible to all communities. For more information on the event and the not-for-profit visit, www.duskdances.ca/en/ season2012_5_Malvern.

Flames destroy two expropriated houses on Chesterton Shores in the Lawrence Avenue and Port Union Road area Sunday evening.

Vandals suspected in pair of fires >>>from page 1 scene of the two-alarm blaze. The nearby train tracks had to be closed because firefighters were bringing hoses across them. The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority expropriated the two homes, 173 and 149 Chesterton Shores, in 2007 in order to build a waterfront trail. But the occupants of the homes were allowed to remain in them until June of this year. TRCA waterfront specialist Nancy Gaffney

said the demolition of the homes, which are 150 metres apart, will go ahead as soon as the fire marshal releases the site. “It (fire) doesn’t change our plans at all.” Gaffney noted she’s not surprised by the suspected arson. “The Port Union park that we have is often subjected to a lot of vandalism,” she said, adding the two homes were boarded up “to minimize any opportunity for that, but they’re pretty relentless.”

YORK: While plans are in the works to eventually close what is an approximately one-kilometre gap between Crawford-Jones Memorial Park (near Weston Road and Hwy. 401) and Cruickshank Park in Weston, local riders in York can still enjoy a pleasant ride. However, the gap prevents Rexdale and west North York residents from being able

BLOOR WEST: For cyclists living in the downtown west end, who not only use their bikes for pleasure, but also for every day transportation, the most pleasant ride is one free from cars. And that is what makes the West Toronto Railpath a popular and pleasant shortcut between Parkdale and the Junction. The two-kilometre long trail

to use what is otherwise an essentially uninterrupted off-road path running from Steeles Avenue to downtown Toronto via the Humber and Martin Goodman Trails. The route from Cruickshank Park to Lake Ontario, save for a small stretch through local, residential streets near the Humber Marshes, is relatively unimpeded and takes, on average, an hour to complete one way.

begins at Cariboo Avenue, just north of the Dupont and Dundas intersection, and runs southeast to Dundas Street West at Sterling Road with various access points. Built on abandoned railway beds, the West Toronto Railpath was completed in 2009. It is an asphalt path lined with greenery, indigenous plantings and brick buildings.

Etobicoke ETOBICOKE: From the Humber River Pedestrian Bridge, cyclists have two options: head up the river path to the northern reaches of Etobicoke, or west along Etobicoke’s picturesque Lake Ontario waterfront. The latter, two-kilometre option is the more scenic, and has the added bonus of no traffic – unless, of course, you consider the steady stream of cyclists, in-line skaters, dog walkers, and family picnickers out for some fresh air and exercise. For the hardcore cyclists, the waterfront trail boasts separate, paved lanes for bikes, while for those out for a more leisurely ride, there are plenty of stops along the path – take in some history at the Palace Pier

PARKDALE: For cyclists looking to head north from Parkdale to the Junction, or just looking for a pleasant car-free ride, the West Toronto Railpath offers a two-kilometre trail between Sterling Avenue at Dundas Street West and Cariboo Avenue, north of Dupont Street. But for many bike enthusiasts, the dream is to see this tree-lined trail, winner Lake Ontario

If completed, the Railpath would give more than 250,000 Toronto residents living in the west end and travelling downtown a sustainable transportation link with the downtown core.

Cyclist-driver conflict only natural in Toronto Motorists, pedestrians, cyclists all competing for limited space DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

W

hen Rob Ford was elected Mayor of Toronto in 2010, one might be forgiven for thinking that bicyclists’ time had passed. As a councillor, Ford famously compared cycling in traffic to “swimming with the sharks,” adding, “Roads are built for buses cars and trucks, not for people on bikes. My heart bleeds for them

when someone gets killed, but it’s their own fault at the end of the day.” At council’s inaugural meeting, the mayor’s chosen keynote speaker, Don Cherry, arrived in a hot pink suit, which he said he wore for “all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles and everything.” The new administration signalled early that it would take a very different route than the previous crew under David Miller, which favoured separated bike lanes on roads. In short order, city council had removed bike lanes on Pharmacy and Birchmount avenues in Scarborough at the request of the local councillor, and another higher-profile bike lane on Jarvis Street despite the protests of the

local councillor there. The shift was a result of more than the will of a mayor more comfortable on four wheels than two. Since before amalgamation, cars and bicycles have had an uneasy relationship on Toronto’s streets. Don Valley East Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, who chairs the city’s works committee, said the conflict is only natural, “because there’s a limited amount of geography — pedestrians, cyclists and motorists are all competing for the same space.” As works chair, Minnan-Wong has carriage of the Ford administration’s cycling plan, which in broad strokes is about separating motorists from cyclists wherever possible.

Ford ran on creating a Bikeway Network — which includes 100 kilometres of off-road recreational bike paths. Some of those paths running along hydro corridors were approved by the previous administration. Minnan-Wong has pressed the issue further, and the city embarked on a plan to make some separated bike lanes downtown — initially on Wellesley and Sherbourne streets, and eventually along Richmond and Adelaide streets in the core of the city. “Everybody has a different opinion,” said Minnan-Wong. “But I think it makes for a safer arrangement for cyclists, and I think the majority of cyclists prefer it.” Scarborough Centre Councillor

Glenn De Baeremaeker chaired the works committee during Miller’s term, and has made a point of making a 20-kilometre commute from his home in Scarborough to city hall by bicycle. He said the separated lanes are a good idea — but maintains that the mayor’s plan focusing on off-road cycling doesn’t help the growing number of utilitarian cyclists in the city. “Separated bike lanes are good, and every cyclist and driver should welcome them,” he said. “Those lanes are complicated things to do, I encourage the bike community and Denzil MinnanWong. But one kilometre of separated bike lane doesn’t make up for cancelling 100 kilometres of bike lanes on roads.”

CITY CENTRE: There’s a long and rewarding ride ahead for cyclists who want to brave the Lower Don River trail, that stretches eight kilometres from Don Mills Road and the Don Valley Parkway south along the Don to Lakeshore Boulevard. At the best of times, it’s a good idea to bring water. But the ride is rich with sights

through Taylor Creek Park has long been a favourite family biking route. After a mid-July rainstorm this year, the shady route seemed more of an Iron Man family biking route. Running 3.5 kilometres from Victoria Park Avenue to Don Mills Road and the Don Valley Parkway, the route was slick

Otherwise, it’s a gentle ride, uphill from Don Mills, through valley lands that snake behind the Ontario Science Centre, past Sunnybrook Park, and deep north through the lush, thick woods lining Wilket Creek. Once you arrive, you’ll have to dismount as bicycles are prohibited in the gardens. But there are bike rings and benches.

and landmarks, and worth the trip. The Prince Edward Viaduct is at its most impressive seen from the saddle of a bicycle below, and urban wildlife abounds. Heading towards the new crossing at Pottery Road, a lone chipmunk tempts fate crossing the path. Further south, where the trail dips underneath Eastern Avenue, a flock of geese stand guard. with mud, and several bridges have now been washed out. Just past Lumsden Avenue, a downed tree called for a cyclist ‘portage’ through the branches. Two of the wooden bridges are washed out, and two others have the safety railing snapped off. It’s a reminder that even in well-groomed Toronto parks, nature still reigns supreme.

NORTH YORK: The five-kilometre ride between Edwards Gardens and Taylor Creek Park is an easy run—for the most part. However, even experienced cyclists will want to get off their bikes and walk the wooden foot-bridge that curves over the CNR tracks cutting through the valley.

Scarborough

SCARBOROUGH: The ride from Greenvale Park, just north of Kingston Road across from the Guildwood GO station, through the Highland Creek Valley and along the shores of Lake Ontario to the Port Union Village Common Park, is a run of approximately 12 kilometres which takes in a wide variety of features and parkland through southeast Scarborough. The run starts with a steep hill and a warning for cyclists to dismount at the Greenvale Park entrance, but levels off nicely. It is a bit smelly, due to sewers running underground near the Lawrence bridge, along the creek into Morningside Park. After that it rolls through the University of Toronto Scarborough campus.

Cyclists cross under Old Kingston Road and continue along beside the creek all the way to Lake Ontario. There’s lots of opportunity to see wildlife on this ride, a pair of deer were spotted by the Morningside bridge, and it’s a fun run for kids with mostly level riding and lots of sites to see.

Beach

BEACH: On most weekends, taking a bike to the Beach is an exercise in frustration: just the same as is taking a picnic, a volleyball, a pair of roller blades or an automobile is. Everyone else has the same idea. On weekdays, it’s a different story; the run east from Leslie Street will take you a good five kilometres, past the new TTC vehicle storage facility, a skateboard park, and the millen-

nium-project Woodbine Park into the Beach proper. It’s good manners to stay off the Boardwalk – there are still a few visitors taking a stroll – but it’s a nice, safe ride through Woodbine Beach, Kew Gardens and Beaches Park. The bike route officially ends around Balsam Avenue; but a few hundred metres further east, and you’ll end up at the stunning R.C. Harris Water Filtration Plant.

Bike sharing program lets students explore Scarborough >>>from page 1 cycling club. The UTSC Sustainability Office, handed the program last year, has eight bikes ready for the road when campus authorities give the arrangement their blessing. Students have started a petition to speed the process up. “It’s kind of getting a reboot now,” said Tim Lang, the Sustainability Office manager, who wants to see the program expand but said demand must be proven first. Last year, BikeShare (not affiliated with other programs of that name, including one in downtown Toronto from 2001 to 2006) had 94 registered users and 10 bicycles on the road for up to 48 hours at a time. It had to turn people away last summer, said Michael Overall, who was the program’s maintenance co-ordinator. Overall saw BikeShare replace

original single-speed coaster-brake bikes with multi-speed, multi-gear

models. The program found a niche

among international students who could use it instead of buying a bicycle for a season, said Overall, who also taught bicycle maintenance to BikeShare volunteers. UTSC is well-situated for cyclists who plan their routes, being beside a multi-use path along Highland Creek to Lake Ontario, waterfront trails and Rouge Hill GO Station, said Overall, adding without much trouble, a rider from the campus can reach the Toronto Zoo. As well as providing transport and recreation, BikeShare can get people interested in cycling through Scarborough, said Overall, noting many UTSC students haven’t explored areas near the campus. “They’re missing out.” Glenn De Baeremaeker, a Scarborough councillor and a UTSC alumnus said he sees “immense potential” in bicycle-sharing hubs

at Scarborough Town Centre and the future McCowan Road light-rail transit station, so that “instead of jumping on a bus, students could jump on a bike and get out to Scarborough A campus” or to CLOSER Centennial LOOK College’s Morningside Campus next door. De Baeremaeker said hydro corridor paths have opened a new cycling route from Victoria Park Avenue to Orton Park and Ellesmere roads, but students on bikes will need paths along Ellesmere’s grassy boulevards to reach the UTSC campus. The road is too dangerous to cycle on otherwise, he said.

Something ‘still missing’ in approach to stopping violent crime: McGuinty MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Canadian governments, says Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, now have a shared responsibility to make certain the lives lost on Danzig Street last week weren’t lost in vain. “This is a complicated problem. It’s going to take all of us (to solve it) and it’s going to take all of us at our best,” McGuinty said last Friday after meeting community leaders close to where the Danzig mass shooting took place. The people McGuinty met at the East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club reminded him “the smartest way to deal with crime is to be tough both on crime and the causes of crime,” he said. Investments in neighbourhood infrastructure and youth programs have had a measurable effect, McGuinty said: Until recently the overall crime rate in Ontario had been declining, youth crime was down and fewer people who committed crimes were re-offending. Though he did not commit more funds, McGuinty said he was told funding for the programs must continue so people can count on them.

“We have been going in the right direction,” he said standing beside Margarett Best, the local MPP and a member of his cabinet, as he addressed reporters. McGuinty acknowledged “something’s still missing” in how violence has been addressed. He said more police resources and a federal ban on handguns are part of the answer – the latter would send the right message, he said, that “we’re going to develop a different gun culture here in Canada” – but warned against “simplistic short-sighted solutions.” Ford’s characterization of programs supported by the city’s own community grants as “hug-a-thug” is unfortunate, he said. Nearby, Alvin Curling. a former Scarborough MPP who co-wrote The Roots of Youth Violence report for the province, was also critical of the mayor’s call for gang members and other criminals to be sent out of Toronto or expelled from Canada if they are not citizens. “Where are they going to go? Another country?” asked Curling, He added politicians must “get on the same page” to address root causes of crime and violence, such as a lack of jobs, racism, or lack of affordable housing.
