Ask questions of byelection candidates MIKE ADLER firstname.lastname@example.org A “meet and greet” event with Scarborough-Guildwood candidates at a Kingston-Galloway church being held today will now include a joint questionand-answer session in front of the public, organizers say. “It’s not a debate, but you can ask them questions,” Dip Habib, co-ordinator of volunteers and
events for the East Scarborough Storefront, said this week. The Storefront is inviting riding residents to Progress Co m m u n i t y C h u rc h , o n Kingston Road just west of Galloway Road, from 6 to 8 p.m. as a way of encouraging personal contact with some of the 10 candidates running in the Aug. 1 byelection. Unlike previous Storefront “meet and greet” sessions, how-
ever, this one will start, after candidates are introduced, with around 20 minutes of questions posed to them by the public, Habib said. Storefront has suggested asking the candidates why residents should vote for them and what they will do for the community.

Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews says physiotherapists are deliberately misinforming seniors in ScarboroughGuildwood about changes to their coverage as the riding prepares for a provincial byelection. A campaign to make the changes a byelection issue seems to be working - the topic came up Thursday during a “social tea” five riding candidates attended at the Momiji Centre on Kingston Road where front-running candidates have tried to concentrate on public transit. Demonstrators organized by a physiotherapy clinics association also briefly picketed the office of Liberal candidate Mitzie Hunter earlier in the campaign. “The people who are protesting are employees of companies who are going to have to change their business models,” said Matthews, who maintains four companies control billing for two-thirds of physiotherapy sessions under the present system.
“They’ve got the people they serve worked up and they’re giving misinformation.” In an interview this week, the minister said physiotherapists in general support the policy change. A court decision Friday gave clinics opposing the change a temporary reprieve from the new system, which was to come into force on Aug. 1. Physiotherapists and seniors they serve in Scarborough, however, have been saying the provincial reorganization of physio, billed as an expansion, will actually cut local services as well as jobs. Progressive Conservative candidate Ken Kirupa said it upsets him to see services to seniors being cut. “Seniors should not be punished, this is what I’m thinking,” he said. Kirupa said seniors who get regular physiotherapy “so they can stay out of the hospital” and stay mobile are happy with the current service. The Liberal government wasted money on other parts of the health care system, and are cutting physiotherapy because “they are short of money now,” he suggested on Thursday. >>>CHANGES, page 10

Scarborough-Guildwood: looking beyond transit MIKE ADLER email@example.com Take away all mention of subways, physiotherapy and cancelled natural gas plants, and the Scarborough-Guildwood bylection campaign hasn’t been about very much. Truthfully, none of the candidates has seemed well-informed on how provincial policies translate into local issues. The riding is the governing Liberals’ to lose on Aug. 1, and their candidate Mitzie Hunter’s closest rivals Progressive Conservative Ken Kirupa and New Democrat Adam Giambrone, when not talking about public transit, have tended to highlight Liberal spending scandals or say the Liberals want to raise taxes. Changes to physiotherapy coverage emerged as a surprise issue, but there are other topics, mentioned in interviews with The Scarborough Mirror over the past few weeks, candidates could have said more about. Scarborough’s two hospitals are studying a merger, partly because the province is changing the way it funds hospitals. Rouge Valley Health System’s Centenary campus is in Scarborough-Guildwood, and probably the riding’s largest single employer. Natalie Mehra of the Ontario Health Coalition said her group
tried to raise the issue because it believes the government wants a merger in order to “ration services,” which will force Scarborough patients to travel further. “The end goal is decided,” she said of merger talks between RVHS and The Scarborough Hospital expected to finish early this fall. “Unless the public makes a lot of noise that’s what’s going to happen.” Hunter said the government has a strong record on health care and she is “confident the hospitals will work together to deliver the absolute best care for our residents.” She deflected charges by other candidates that Scarborough has been short-changed on health care by pointing to increased investments in home care for seniors and the recent completion of an emergency department at TSH’s General campus west of the riding. “Our community is benefitting.” Kirupa said waste in the health care system should be eliminated, but added “patients’ care cannot be jeopardized in any way.” While acknowledging people are concerned about hospital mergers, he said his party will put more money into “patient-centred care,” if it can. Giambrone said he has met doctors worried about closing outpatient programs and beds at TSH and believe a merger may lead to

closing of local emergency rooms. With the information he has, he said, “I would feel absolutely uncomfortable supporting any merger.” Giambrone toured the General on Friday with Green candidate Nick Leeson, who took a positive view on how that hospital responded to funding changes. “They’re using a lot of business strategies to innovate and run things more efficiently, and that’s great,” Leeson said. Leeson, however, also noted the General’s operating rooms were built in the 1950s and aren’t adequate now, for which he blames the efforts of local MPPs: “The
advocates for Scarborough weren’t doing a good enough job.” The campaign coincided with the first anniversary of the Danzig Street shooting, which came after years of provincial, federal and city investment in the KingstonGalloway-Orton Park neighbourhood that saw expansions at the East Scarborough Storefront, East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club and Native Child and Family Services in the riding. At a service for Shyanne Charles, a local teenager killed in the shooting, Hunter delivered passionate impromptu words of encouragement to the girl’s young friends. “Let this little girl be the wind at your back,” she told them, later explaining she thought Shyanne could be a powerful motivator for her circle, “starting with completing an education, which is really the ultimate determinate of a young person’s future.” Kirupa said it was outrageous innocent bystanders “were caught up in the gang fighting” on Danzig and said he’d work with law enforcement, federal and city governments “to restore safety in Scarborough.” Crime rates go down when the economy “is doing okay,” said the Tory candidate, but if Liberal investments and anti-violence programs in the area had been working well, he argued, “this shooting would not happen.”
Meanwhile, Kirupa added, people in the riding say their children cannot find a job in their field. “We have to focus on creating jobs,” he said. “We need lots of plumbers, but nobody’s studying in the plumbing field.” Leeson sounded doubtful on whether Liberal investments and programs are working. Centres for youth, “can only provide a stop gap” if there is no strategy to get jobs for those youths, said the Green candidate. “Youth unemployment is still extremely high in this riding.” The campaign has seen consultations for a provincial Youth Jobs Strategy Hunter said will spend $295 million over two years. “I want to ensure these investments benefit young people in Scarborough-Guildwood,” said the Liberal candidate. “We know the power of work to transform lives.” Giambrone, the New Democrat, said the province invested in Toronto’s Don Valley Brickworks and Wychwood Barns, and should also invest in Guild Park, where the riding’s historic Guild Inn has been left to deteriorate. “They’ve come in when the people who ask them are strong and don’t let them off the hook,” he said.

Series of violent bank robberies happened in Scarborough ANDREW PALAMARCHUK firstname.lastname@example.org A $50,000 reward is being offered for information on a series of eight violent bank robberies in which tellers were pistol-whipped, pulled by the hair and put in headlocks. The armed robbery spree began June 1 at the Bank of Montreal at 5540 Lawrence Ave. E. The latest holdup occurred July 22 in Vaughan. “Our concern is the escalation of violence in these robberies,” Staff Insp. Mike Earl told reporters Thursday during a news conference at police headquarters. “These suspects not only just jump over the counter and make a demand for cash, they also have been pistolwhipping tellers, pushing tellers, grabbing tellers by their hair, in one instance grabbing the teller in a choke-hold while demanding the money.” The Canadian Bankers Association
posted the cash reward for information leading to arrests and convictions in the case. “In each instance, at least two masked males enter the bank, produce a firearm, vault the counter and remove a quantity of cash,” Earl said. “The employees were traumatized, some were actually manhandled.” The suspects are black, in their early 20s and 5’8” to six-feet tall. Police believe there could be two groups involved in the robberies though the groups could be connected. “There could be a crossover of individuals in both groups, which we’ve seen before,” Earl said. “All we need is a tip to lead to one of these individuals, which may start the domino effect.” Police released surveillance camera images of the robbers. Four of the holdups occurred in Scarborough. One happened in North York. The others took place
to call the holdup squad at 416-8087350 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222TIPS (8477).

ith Toronto Public Health now reporting it has found mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus within the city limits, residents must take the threat seriously and protect themselves and those they love. Public health monitors 43 mosquito traps across the city, and would not say the exact location where the infected insects were found. Instead, Elaine Pacheco, healthy environments manager with public health, said all Torontonians need to take precautions. While West Nile is not usually fatal in humans, it can be. There have been hundreds of cases reported over the years, and some people have died in our city from the virus. It could happen our view again. For most people exposed to the virus, though, the symptoms don’t Basic even show. For about one in five symptoms can include precautions people, fever, body aches, nausea, vomitadvised ing and headaches. Less than one per cent of people infected require hospitalization, Pacheco said. Last year, Toronto Public Health said 94 people were diagnosed with West Nile virus in the city and there were 100 infected mosquito pools discovered through testing. Residents need to remember there is a chance they could be exposed to an infected mosquito. But by taking some basic precautionary steps, they can be protected. People can reduce their risk by wearing lightcoloured long-sleeved shirts, pants, socks and a hat while outdoors. Mosquitoes are especially active at dusk and dawn, and at those times extra precautions, including the use of insect repellent, are advised. Residents can also lessen the chance of mosquito breeding by making sure the habitats that support them are dealt with. In particular, make sure standing water such as bird feeders, plant pots and the like are either emptied or refilled with fresh water. Mosquitoes love to breed in such environments. Protecting our indoor living space by making sure screens on windows and doors do not have holes is also important. While Torontonians should not live in fear of mosquitoes, we should look after ourselves and continue to make the rest of the summer healthy and happy.

o, I was soaking up the gorgeous weather on my favourite park bench Sunday morning when a white-haired gentleman, who had just come out of Now That’s What I Call A Bagel across the street, accidentally dropped his sunglasses on the sidewalk. I was about to let him know, when a kid zipping by on a skateboard beat me to the punch. He came to a screeching stop, scooped them up and yelled out, “Hey oldtimer, you lost something. Over here.” The man winced. “Thanks for retrieving my shades,” he said. “But I don’t care to be referred to as oldtimer. If it’s all the same to you, that is.” “No worries, gramps,” the kid replied cheerfully. The wince turned to a grimace. “I ain’t too high on gramps either,” the man

The kid was digging himself in deeper and deeper, but soldiered on blissfully unaware. “You prefer senior citizen, perhaps?” “Not quite.” “Golden-ager?” “Fraid not.” “Boomer?” “Hardly.” “Zoomer?” “Sorry.” “Double Nickels?

graying population, then?” This time the man just shook his head in disbelief and let out a huge sigh. “So you’re saying there’s nothing I could call you that would make you happy?” “I’m saying no such thing. Why don’t you try Mickey?” “Huh,” the kid replied surprised. “That’s my name. Mickey. Always has been. Always will be. Feel free to
use it to it anytime. Now if you’ll excuse me...” Then the man grabbed the kid’s skateboard, popped a quick wheelie and handed it back to him. “Gnarly ride, junior,” he said. “Uh, I’m not too crazy about being called junior, Mickey,” the kid replied. “What is it with you young whippersnappers today?” Mickey asked perplexed. “If it’s all the same to you, I also don’t like to be called a young whipp...” “Whatever. Later dude, keep it real, know what I’m saying?” And then Mickey hopped on his Harley, popped another wheelie and took off Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously.

Making mas in Scarborough
MIKE ADLER firstname.lastname@example.org
aving shaped it with pliers and masking tape, Clyde Bascombe dabs contact cement on the wire frame of what will soon be a face. He learned the art of wire bending as a young man, and over 30 years since has experimented to improve it. “It is generally believed that the art is dying,” said Bascombe, who was about to drape the frame with gold-sequined fabric at the D’Regulars Arts and Cultural Club in Scarborough. “Kids now don’t really care to do it.” Volunteers with Bascombe’s particular skills are rare, but anyone who can sew, glue, cut, cook or do anything else is welcome at a masquerader band camp. Passionate “Those who are not experts we make experts of them by the end of the season,” said Sandra Davis, in charge of costumes at the D’Regulars storefront camp at Lawrence and Morningside avenues. “Everyone brings their chairs and their tables and their glue sticks. No one’s paid; it’s a labour of love,” Davis said. “You have to be passionate to be able to put up with that.” In Scarborough each year, hundreds do, whether they get intensely involved in a mas camp for weeks on end or just drop by with food or coffee. The grandest events of the Toronto Caribbean Carnival are held elsewhere, but mas is pretty much made in Scarborough. This year, the area was home to 11 of the 12 festival bands, including all of the largest. “This is the pulse (of the Toronto carnival). This is

where the money is spent,” said Davis, adding planning for next year’s carnival begins just after the current one ends.
Everyone brings their chairs and their tables and their glue sticks. No one’s paid; it’s a labour of love. – Sandra Davis
Costume ideas are argued over and materials found. Carnival in Trinidad, the island where most band leaders are from, is watched carefully to spot trends which, like fashions on runways in Milan, turn up in Toronto soon after. “It’s actually a very fierce competition, a lot of bragging rights,” said
Davis, who has been with D’Regulars for three years. “Every time we come to a point where we’re almost there, we look at (a design) and say there’s a change necessary.” Around the May long weekend, bands start staging launches to show their costumes. People are picky about the feathers: if one package is bad, “the talk spreads really fast,” Davis said. D’Regulars is a category C band which will be at the back of the Aug. 3 Grand Parade. Instead of four gigantic costumes, it will send one female individual costume – the one Bascombe was working on – to the King and Queen competition and, since the camp has no loading dock, it must be assembled in the parking lot. The band, always look-
ing for donations and volunteers, hopes a proper presentation in the parade will convince the judges to move them to the B category in 2014.
It’s something that has been in my blood and has stayed in my blood.
– Band leader, Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been the band’s leader for 35 years (for some, D’Regulars appeared as a guest band or teamed up with others) and involved in Toronto’s carnival since 1970. “It’s something that has been in my blood and has stayed in my blood,” he said, adding the festival’s
great success is due to the costumes of the mas makers, the Toronto Mas Bands Association, which produces the spectacle tourists come to see. This year, the D’Regulars camp was also home to young people from Danzig Street, scene of a mass shooting last July at a Toronto Community Housing townhouse complex a few blocks away. The youths were shown how to make every part of the band’s hand-made costumes. “They may even design their own costumes and wear them in 2014,” said Davis. “In order to heal the community people have to believe in themselves, and they have to know from whence they came.” Carnival in most of the Caribbean islands started with colonization
and the slave trade, Davis said, when slaves free to enjoy themselves for a day painted their faces white and wore long dresses to make a mockery of their owners. “There’s a history behind it and a very strong history too.” Williams said most mas camps are in Scarborough because most Trinidadians in Greater Toronto, almost 80 per cent, live in Scarborough. Chris Alexander, CAO of the festival, said another reason for the concentration is camps need to close and move each year, and industrial leases in Scarborough are very reasonable. Volunteers Volunteers come from many places to be part of a mas camp and its atmosphere, added Alexander, who said he had visited two large camps on Howden Road, near Birchmount Road and Lawrence Avenue, the night before. “It reminds you of what you’ve missed in the Caribbean.” Costume for D’Regulars’ eight parade sections – including one in camouflage clothes geared to male masqueraders and known in Trinidad as “war mas” - are still on sale, and Davis said no one needs an invitation to purchase one and join the parade. “We’re all one on that day.”

>>>from page 1 Matthews said the new physiotherapy system will be accessible to twice as many people and provide more value for money. O n t a r i o P r o g re s s i v e Conservatives “are taking the side of these four companies,” the minister said, while New Democrats “just want to criticize everything we do” and have no alternative plan. Adam Giambrone, the New Democratic candidate, said it’s the government’s job to make a better plan after committing to consult on the issue. “The Opposition is supposed to highlight the concerns,” he said. Regular physiotherapy helps with ongoing health challenges the elderly have, increasing their mobility and chances to stay in their own homes, Giambrone said, arguing without these regular treatments, “you actually diminish the quality of life of the individual.” Cutting regular coverage is “probably robbing Peter to pay Paul,” because seniors who lose sessions will end up costing the system more, he added. Lynda Wade, 66, who lives in the riding on $13,000 a year, said she brought up the issue when Giambrone came by her apartment. Eight months of twice-weekly
treatments, including hot and cold wraps and pressure on a nerve in her leg, she said, helped her with the chronic pain of shingles. “It worked for me, because I walk normally now,” without a cane, said Wade, a volunteer for Giambrone. “From what I’ve heard (under the new system) I would only be allowed one treatment a month,” she said, charging this amounts to the government saying “just sit in your wheelchair and go away.” local seniors Matthews insisted there “is no cap on the number of services anyone can receive,” but she did disagree with the use of physiotherapy - which some local seniors have had two or three times a week simply to maintain strength or manage chronic conditions. “Physiotherapy, by its very nature, is designed to be episodic,” such as after a hip replacement, the minister said, adding current patients are being assessed to see whether they need one-on-one physio or would benefit instead from group exercises. “Seniors will be protected as we move forward,” Matthews promised. During a debate this week,
Hunter said seniors should not worry about changes to the coverage and that they will be able to access physio “right in the facilities that they do today.” “It’s really just changing the system in which the services are acquired,” she added. Sarah Elevazo, a regional manager of physiotherapists who is co-ordinating the physio campaign in Scarborough, said she is going door to door handing out window cards made by the Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association of Ontario. The cards name Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and tell Scarborough-Guildwood voters to “stop the Wynne Liberal cuts to seniors’ physiotherapy” during the Aug. 1 vote, but Elevazo said they are not a bid to defeat Hunter. “I’m not saying (vote) Liberal, PC or NDP. We’re saying (to Liberal supporters) speak to Mitzie,” and get her to change her stance favouring the new system, said Elevazo, who added the association will continue pressing the government to at least delay the changes and consult all stakeholders.

TTC eyeing GO rail corridors It’s Ribfest time in Scarborough!
he TTC will study using existing GO rail corridors for a proposed subway route. A motion approved by the TTC board asks staff to collaborate with provincial transit planning body Metrolinx on examining the suitability of running a future Downtown Relief Line (DRL) along the Georgetown and Lakeshore East tracks. Metrolinx has placed the construction of a relief line as a priority for its Big Move transit network, and has pledged to build the DRL within 15 years if the project is funded. Station art winner announced wUnion
A Belgian studio has won a public art competition to develop a commemorative art installation for Union Station. Brussels-based LAb[au] was chosen by a five-person selection panel for the right to design and install a multimedia art piece in honour of the city’s first parks body the
rahul gupta TO in TRANSIT Walks and Gardens Trust. The studio’s winning idea fLUX focuses on themes of human motion and flow and will appear permanently on the station’s passenger concourse underneath Front Street. streetcar testing continues wNew
Members of the media had the chance to take a trip on the new TTC streetcar. A testing model of the new low-floor vehicle made its maiden daylight voyage from the TTC’s Hillcrest facility, located at 1138 Bathurst St., to Bathurst Station. If testing is completed on schedule, the new streetcars will be in service next year on multiple routes including Bathurst, though it will likely take until 2019 before all 204 of the new cars ordered from Bombardier are in operation.
