Exposed pipeline in Rouge to be covered MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Canadian energy giant Enbridge says it will permanently cover a section of oil pipeline that has been exposed on a bank of the Rouge

River in Scarborough for more than two years. The company’s promise to start work at the site within two weeks came days after Environmental Defence, a non-profit group, warned a spill from the pipeline could “per-

manently damage” a future Rouge National Urban Park. Adam Scott, a spokesperson for the group, said he was checking the Enbridge Line 9 pipeline, which carries oil from Montreal to Sarnia, Ontario. “I just happened to find the

Guided Guild tours slated for summer

RIBFEST FUN

MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com People curious about Scarborough’s Guild Inn and its sculpture gardens can enjoy a free guided tour of the grounds on Wednesdays and Thursday evenings this month. “We want people to know about it and to love it the way we love it,” said Janet Heise, a member of the Guild Renaissance Group. The former art colony on Gu i l d w o o d Pa r k w a y by t h e Scarborough Bluffs has a collection of sculptures and fragments from old Toronto buildings on display in what is now a city park.

Heise said the 40-minute tours, which start at 6:30 p.m. by a flagpole at the front of the property, were intended as a warm-up for audiences of a play performed on the grounds until Aug. 12 but the response was so good she decided to continue until the end of August. Members of the GHG, which seeks to promote activities on the historic property, have been frustrated in recent years by failed deals to restore or replace the shuttered Guild Inn. The City of Toronto has budgeted millions for improvements to the grounds, but those projects will be done only after another deal is struck to tear down the derelict hotel building and replace it with a restaurant and banquet hall. Heise has high hopes such a deal can be announced after the city issues a request for proposals this fall and approves a partnership with a private operator. “Then the place would live again,” she said.

Local family to move into Habitat for Humanity condo DANIELLE MILLEY dmilley@insidetoronto.com Habitat for Humanity Toronto has changed up its traditional housing model a bit to give Felister Mburu and her three children a home to call their own. Since it began building in Toronto 24 years ago, Habitat for Humanity has gone through the time consuming process of acquiring land and building homes from the ground up. From servicing the land to framing the building to completing the interior that process can take a year or more. But now Habitat has found a way to give families a hand up in housing more quickly by purchasing and renovating a resale condo. Later this month the Mburu family will be handed the keys to a three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath condo on Gilder Drive in Scarborough – Habitat’s first resale project and the family’s first home of its own. “It meant a family who have been living in difficult circumstances will live in a great condo,” said Neil Hetherington, Habitat CEO. With land becoming more scarce, buying resale properties is a way for Habitat to continue growing. “It’s something that will happen more often,” Hetherington said.

“They aren’t making land anymore.” Mburu and her family are moving from a crowded apartment where they worry about safety of the building, which isn’t so far away from their new home as to uproot the children completely. The partnership with Habitat still works the same way with Mburu and her family having to donate 500 hours of sweat equity and paying the cost of the home through an interest-free mortgage. Family pays fees In this case, the family will also be responsible for paying condo fees. Hetherington said Habitat made sure to check the reserve fund and the condo’s history to ensure the partner family would be moving into a good building – something new for the organization. “We spent a lot of time in the due diligence,” he said. A smaller group of volunteers than normal and one staff person refurbished the unit using new and donated materials, including renovating the kitchen, installing new floors and new lighting fixtures, and doing some cosmetic work. The Habitat board recently authorized the purchase of another resale unit. Hetherington said the

charity is also talking with Toronto Community Housing Corporation about the scattered homes TCHC plans to sell across the city. “Doesn’t it make sense if you can switch that renter to become a homeowner?” he said. In other Habitat news, the organization is set to break ground on two new sites in Scarborough. The groundbreaking ceremony for Courville Drive (Birchmount Road and Danforth Avenue area) takes place Aug. 29. The site will feature 10 semi-detached homes on a private street, which is being named after J.F. Courville, the past chair of the Habitat board. “It’s a wonderful reflection of who Courville is. He’s an outstanding individual who gave of his time,” Hetherington said. Volunteers will begin building in September. The second site is located in the Danforth Road and St. Clair Avenue area. New Crescent will be the site of four accessible homes with construction to begin in October. Scarborough has been the site of many Habitat buildings – including Habitat for Humanity Toronto’s largest ever build – and Hetherington said with these new builds its a return to the east end after its last two projects took place in the west end.

Environmental group raises concerns over 37-year-old pipeline >>>from page 1 exposed the line on the west bank of the Rouge east of Staines Road. It allowed Enbridge to place a “concrete blanket” around the pipe, but it has taken this long to get agreement from the company, the Authority and management of Rouge Park on a permanent solution, said Renee Afoom, speaking for the TRCA on Tuesday. “They’re rebuilding the whole slope (of the western bank) so the exposed part will be buried,” said

Afoom, adding the Authority’s executive board may approve a permit for the work this Friday. Todd Nogier, an Enbridge spokesperson, said the TRCA had accepted its plan for a permanent cover to be planted with shrubs “with the intent of blending into the surroundings,” and it may be completed in two months. “Some diverting” of the river channel around the site will be necessary during the construction, he said.

Enbridge has been fined for U.S. spills, including one from a pipeline into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan in 2010, and Scott said people should be concerned about the safety of the 37-year-old Line 9 even after the work is finished. Bitumen oil Environmental Defence said the company is seeking to reverse the flow of Line 9 and use it to transport “more corrosive” bitumen oil

from Alberta’s tar sands, leading to “greater risk” of a spill. “This oil is like hot liquid sandpaper that damages pipelines,” the environmental group said in a statement. Nogier, however, said third-party studies “have found no evidence bitumen presents a more corrosive product” and much of what flows through Line 9 would be a lighter crude. A pipeline operated by another company has run safely through Jasper National Park for

decades, he added. Land transfer Ontario is expected to sign an agreement transferring provincial land in the present Rouge Park to the federal government this fall. Federal officials have said creating the new Rouge Park – the first in a new class of national parks – would not affect maintenance or expansion of infrastructure, such as pipelines, running through it.

Transit decisions a joke in Toronto

Think of protective measures against West Nile virus

N

ews from Toronto Public Health that two people in the city have tested positive for probable West Nile virus should serve as a warning for all residents. Now is the time to stop and think about protective measures regarding the disease that is spread by infected mosquitoes. There’s no need for panic; just remember some simple steps we can all take to limit both our personal risk of exposure and that of our neighbours. The best way to protect yourself is to limit exposure. Be especially our view aware at dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active. Use Everyone can mosquito repellent, cover up help control with long sleeves and pants, and wear light coloured clothes in mosquito areas where there are mosquitoes. population Residents can also protect their home’s indoors by making sure all holes in window and door screens are repaired. Also, Toronto Public Health reminds residents that checking properties and limiting areas that mosquitoes can use as breeding grounds helps keep the numbers down. In particular, residents are asked to remove standing water from their properties, especially water that has gathered in plant pots, buckets and other items. On a larger scale, the city is also doing its part by having larvicide put into catch basins in order to help reduce the mosquito population. This year’s hot spring and summer have raised the risk level of West Nile virus in Toronto, and the city’s public health department said the two probable diagnoses last week mark the earliest appearance of the virus in humans since it first arrived in Toronto in 2002. An 80-year-old man, who has been hospitalized, and a 32-year-old woman recovering at home have been found with the probable diagnosis. Public health did not say what part of the city they are from. West Nile virus is a potentially deadly disease originally carried by birds who passed it on to mosquitoes after being bitten. People exposed to the virus can show a number of symptoms including fever, rash, neck pain, confusion, severe headaches and sensitivity to light. In serious cases, it can cause inflammation of the brain. However, the risk of infection is still considered low, according to Toronto Public Health, with less than one per cent of people becoming seriously ill and 80 per cent of people bitten by an infected mosquito do not become ill at all. That should not lead to complacency, though. Working together, we can all limit our exposure to this virus. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Scarborough residents want subways To the editor: Re: ‘Torontonians need to voice transit opinions,’ Editorial, July 13. Concerned Scarborough citizens who oppose the above ground light rail transit have been fighting against this ludicrous plan for more than three years. They have formed a group called SAFE (Subways Are For Everyone). This group, with no political leaning or affiliation, put its money where its mouth is by printing flyers and holding meetings (one of which, held at the Scarborough Civic Centre attracted an overflow crowd of more than 700 people). They demonstrated outside the Glen Watford office of TTC Transit City when it opened, and have handed out flyers at bus stops along Sheppard at Victoria Park, Warden, Birchmount and Kennedy. This group has held

meetings with city councilors and MPPs. They have visited many businesses along Sheppard and have spoken to shoppers at many shopping centres. Many Scarborough citizens want subways or buses, not LRT’s, and many people have come up with ideas on how to fund a subway. One such idea was to take out a 25-year mortgage to pay for the construction of the subway, use money saved from the gravy train cuts, ask for tax deductible donation and add a surtax to be charged to Toronto taxpayers only until the mortgage is paid off. The citizens of Scarborough are being ignored and given false information and they object to the left-leaning councillors’ movement to resurrect Transit City. Do union members know their union dues are being

used to promote LRTs in Toronto against the wishes of the citizens? How would these union members feel about their unions donating money toward a Toronto subway? There would be a hue and cry claiming this is unfair to the rest of the province and that is not what the dues are supposed to be used for. Although a subway costs more during the construction phase, it is cheaper to run. Subways will not add to the gridlock on our roads and will be able to run without staff once the new payment card plan is utilized (is that why the unions are against it?). I urge all citizens to band together to fight this lunacy. I also urge all councilors to stop their bickering, the people of Toronto stated their mandate during the last civic election. Maureen Coram

To the editor: Re: ‘Pity for city unwarranted,’ Letters, July 27. With respect to Kenny Pearl’s response to Ron Smith’s letter of July 1, “Council’s decisions make Toronto a joke”, I don’t mean to be critical but I think Smith’s point was missed. For example, former mayor David Miller cancelled a transit plan that had been in place since the mid 1980s and announced Transit City. No environmental assessment, no discussion in council. Then the TTC chair said the Sheppard subway extension would be completed to Scarborough City Centre and two weeks later flipped and changed it to a LRT. Under the current administration, Mayor Rob Ford, with the popular support of most of the City of Toronto, announced the end of Transit City and the re-establishment of the Sheppard subway extension. Four months later council, in their wisdom, decides that Ford doesn’t have any idea what he is doing and launches a coup d’etat to override his strategy and reestablishes Transit City. Now if this isn’t hard enough for people living in other centres to get their collective heads around, how do you think they will react when it becomes common knowledge the announced LRT along Sheppard will completely bypass the largest shopping centre, commercial centre, government complex and major transit hub in east Toronto? How are people living north of Hwy. 401 to access this major destination? It sure won’t be by the Sheppard LRT. So as I said, I think the original letter’s point was missed. Patrick Sherman

while searching a home.

A good summer, so far, for mayor

M

ayor Rob Ford finished off July with what can only be described as a series of bravura performances. It really started mid-July, as the mayor danced on the stage with ebullient young women at the launch of the latest iteration of Caribana. Later in the month, he traded quips with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, as the two movie stars descended upon the Hockey Hall of Fame to promote their new movie. Later that same week, he risked life, limb and dignity ascending a set of monkey bars in the new Underpass Park, bouncing up and down while delighted neighbourhood children chanted “Go Mayor, Go Mayor.” It was goofy. It could have gone all to pieces. The mayor could have fallen and really hurt himself; he could have ripped his trousers; he could have simply gotten stuck. But you know what? If it had all gone to pieces, the mayor would have left Torontonians with a really

city views

david nickle joyful reminder of just what it is we expect from a mayor in this town: that being, someone who isn’t afraid to get down in the dirt and be seen having a good time with his constituents. Mel Lastman, Toronto’s first mayor, was all about the goofball moments. His office both at Toronto City Hall and when he was Mayor of North York, at the civic centre, was filled with five-and-dime novelties and practical jokes that he’d pull out to amuse — and sometimes bemuse — visitors. Lastman had his bad moments, certainly — but his good moments were just a joy. For Mayor Ford, there have been too few joyful moments — at least publicly. When things have

gotten goofy, Ford has more often played an uncomfortable straight man who responded with anger and fear rather than good humour to the surprises life in the city tossed his way. There is, of course, no time like the summer to do this sort of thing. Ford has had some setbacks legislatively — Toronto Council has for the moment seized the agenda from him in the middle of his term. But council is in recess — there are no meetings until the fall — and there is no one to stop the mayor from actually going out and engaging with his citizenry, in a context beyond dealing with oneon-one grievances. It’s good to see him rethinking his absent-father approach to leadership. Because at some point, even the sternest dad sits down with his kids and plays. n David Nickle is The Mirror’s city hall reporter. His column appears every Thursday.

Dinner, dance raises sickle cell awareness MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com For 16 years, Comfort Anyaele did not want people to know her family had been touched by sickle cell disease. Her African-Canadian community is secretive about it, she said this week. “It’s a stigma, it’s a taboo.”

But Anyaele doesn’t want sickle cell to be hidden anymore. She wants to fight it. And the first step to doing that is a dinner, dance and auction in Etobicoke this Saturday. The free event, presented by Anyaele’s group, Comfort and Smiles for Children and Families with Sickle

Cell Disease, follows up her announcement in June that her son has sickle cell disease. That emotional moment for Anyaele came during a forum at TAIBU, a community health centre in Scarborough’s Malvern neighbourhood that has become the first to offer regular support and treatment

“It will help my community to come out (and address the presence of sickle cell). I want to save lives.’ Comfort Anyaele for those with sickle cell. The meeting heard children can fall behind in school and employees lose their jobs because sickle cell is not being recognized or understood. Sickle cell is passed on through a genetic trait that can be detected in a test. A child of two people with the trait has one chance in

four of having the disease, which warps the shape of red blood cells and causes them to rupture or block blood vessels. Saturday’s event, which features three dance groups, starts at 7 p.m. at Elmbank Community Centre on Rampart Road, near Martingrove Road and

Finch Avenue West. Dinner at 8 p.m. will include ugba, an African oil bean salad with fish. It will be sold, but the rest of the food, including moi-moi, a bean pudding prepared with rice, is free, Anyaele said. Also supporting the event are the Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario, the Sickle Cell Association of Ontario and the Five with Drive Foundation. “It will help my community to come out” and address the presence of sickle cell, said Anyaele this week. “I want to save lives.”

Birchmount baseball player Triolo invited to national junior camp The final selection camp for Canada’s junior national baseball team boasts five Toronto players among the 24 hopefuls. The five Toronto players (along with their past/present high school affiliations) include: • Jamar Burnette (Parkdale Collegiate); • Ga re t h Mo rg a n ( No r t h To ro n t o Collegiate); • Daniel Pinero (St. Michael’s College); • Mitchell Triolo (Birchmount Park Collegiate); • and Johnny Caputo (Crescent School). And they’ll be right at home for the first part of the selection camp as it hits the Rogers Centre Aug. 16 and 17 for two practices as well as a game at Etobicoke’s Connorvale Park (former haunting grounds of Cincinnati Reds

superstar Joey Votto) for a game against an all-star team participating in a Major League Scouting Bureau Canadian tryout camp. The selection camp then moves to Trieste, Italy, for an eight-game tune-up series Aug. 19 to 26 involving Italy, Czech Republic and a U.S.A. select club. At the conclusion of the selection camp, a final 20-player roster will then be selected to travel to Seoul, South Korea, for the 18U World Championships which take place Aug. 30 to Sept. 8. Canada is coming off a fourth-place finish at the 2010 World Championship in Thunder Bay. Canada’s last medal at an 18U World Championship came in 2006 when a club led by Brett Lawrie defeated Mexico 6-2 to claim the bronze medal.

Brown runs with Bolt in men’s 200m semifinal race Tw o y e a r s a g o, A a r o n Brown was racing in the provincial high school track and field championships for Birchmount Park Collegiate. He won the 100m event. Yesterday he ran at the London Olympics in a 200m semifinal heat alongside Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt, who was fresh off defending his Olympic 100m final last Sunday. Brown finished fourth in yesterday’s semifinal, which was easily won by Bolt, and just failed to qualify for the final. Brown ran his semifinal in a time of 20:42 seconds, which was a personal best for him. Brown, who just turned 20 at the end of May, advanced to the semifinal heat after finishing third in his qualifying heat with a time of 20.55 seconds. “I was so nervous, it is crazy out there,” said Brown, in a post-race interview on the Canadian Olympic Association website. He did have at least one thing going for him in yesterday’s semifinal – it was

his parents in east Toronto. Crystal Emmanuel, who was born in Scarborough but now calls the East York area home, ran in her first Olympic semifinal race Tuesday afternoon. She finished seventh and did not qualify for the final. Emmanuel, 20, finished her qualifying heat in a season’s best time of 23.10 seconds – good enough for fifth. The Top 3 women from each heat automatically qualified and the next six fastest finishers also qualified. Emmanuel secured the last of those qualifying spots for the semifinal. GOLD MEDALIST

“I’m not a real morning person so that didn’t help. At around 120m I felt the lactic acid, but I said no way, man, this is the Olympics and just

found another gear, ran guys down.” Brown, when he’s not attending the University of Southern California, lives with

Running beside the gold medalist from Saturday’s 100m, Shelly-Ann FraserPryce of Jamaica, might have helped push the young runner. “I started to tighten up a bit in the last 50 metres, I’m really happy to be through,” said Emmanuel in a statement released by the Canadian Olympic Committee. Emmanuel also said it was a

great experience qualifying in front of 80,000 spectators. On Tuesday, Phylicia George, who did her final year of high school at Scarborough’s Mary Ward Catholic Secondary School, finished sixth in the finals of the women’s 100-metre hurdles. George, who grew up in Markham, was third in the semifinal race on Tuesday with a time of 12.65 seconds which was a personal best. The final was won by Australian Sally Pearson. On the weekend, Justyn Warner, who also attended Birchmount Park, competed in the men’s 100m sprints. Warner reached the semifinals of the event, also running in a heat with eventual winner Bolt. Warner, 24, tied his best time of 10.09 seconds to finish fifth in his semifinal Sunday night, but it wasn’t enough to advance to the final.

A mourner reaches to touch the coffin of Shyanne Charles following the young murder victim’s funeral on Saturday, July 28, at Highland Funeral Home in Scarborough. Charles, 14, was killed in the July 16 Danzig Street shooting. A trust fund has been established by the community to help her family.

Trust fund established for family of shooting victim Shayanne Charles Neighbours who miss Shyanne Charles have started a trust fund to help her family. They are hoping it will pay for the funeral of the West Hill girl, 14 when she was killed at the Danzig Street mass shooting on July 16. Community members who started the Shyanne Charles Trust Account, which was opened last week, also help the fund will sustain her mother and siblings through future needs, such as counselling. Anyone can donate to the account (#1328018)

at any branch of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. The East Scarborough Storefront helped start the account and Scarborough East Councillor Paul Ainslie, whose ward is across the street from the shooting scene praised it as a worthy cause. “I am very proud of the families which make up the fabric of our community. One of our families needs your help,” Ainslie said in a letter.

City

Private garbage collection begins in west Toronto DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Homeowners west of Yonge Street have seen the last of city-employed garbage collection as of this week, as Toronto’s contract with Green For Life kicks in.

www.sproutscloset.ca

The plan to contract out garbage collection was approved by Toronto Council at the behest of Mayor Rob Ford in 2011, but only takes effect this week. At the time of the approval, the city was constrained by collective agreements with CUPE Local 416 and so was only able to contract out about a quarter of the city’s garbage collection — between Yonge Street and the Humber River. Etobicoke had been contracted out since before amalgamation. City workers continue to collect garbage in the east end. “I’m excited about what’s going on,” said Denzil Minnan-Wong, chair of the city’s public works and infrastructure committee. “This is great for a number of reasons. The number one reason is we’re going to save over $10 million a year – and over the life of the contract, if we exercise our extensions, that will be savings to the taxpayers of over $100 million.” Minnan-Wong told a Tuesday, Aug.

FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE FUTURE SHOP AUGUST 3 CORPORATE FLYER On page 25 of the August 3 flyer, the LG 19.7 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator (LDN20718ST) (WebID: 10104222) was advertised with an incorrect dimension. Please be advised that the correct depth for this refrigerator is approximately 35 inches NOT 85 inches, as previously advertised.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

7, morning news conference that the city will be concentrating on making sure that GFL provides a high-level of customer service before moving on to privatize the rest of the city’s garbage collection. “I think what the public wants to see is they want to see customer service excellence and value for money,” said Minnan-Wong. “There are going to be some instances where it makes sense and you’re going to find council opposing that for ideological grounds... So what we need to do is we need to make the case to council where it makes sense to move forward with more contracted out services, not simply in waste collection but across the board.” That is consistent with a promise

that Mayor Rob Ford made on his and his brother’s radio show, that despite having made changes to the collective agreement that would allow full contracting out, the final stages won’t likely be implemented until after the 2014 municipal election. City staff will be monitoring collection of solid waste across the west end. GFL is currently the only private company collecting residential garbage under city contracts. After signing with the city, GFL finalized its acquisition of Turtle Island Recycling, which had the contract to collect garbage in Etobicoke. CUPE Local 416 President Mark Ferguson said the beginning of the new contract was “a sad day for residents of the City of Toronto and a

sad day for working people across the city.” He said, “It’s a bad day for residents because it’s a day where collectively we’ve lost control and oversight of a critical public service. It’s a sad day for workers because it represents yet another step toward lower wages, less security and less dignity for working people.” The union has established a hotline for residents with concerns or complaints about garbage collection in the area. “Residents who observe shoddy service, the mixing of waste streams or dangerous driver activity can contact 1-866-419-2227,” he said. Residents can also call the city’s 311 service to talk directly to city solid waste staff.

Throat and stomach irritation hospitalizes Ford Mayor Rob Ford’s hospitalization Tuesday and Wednesday was due to an “irritation in the mayor’s throat and stomach” which aggravated his asthma, according to a statement from the mayor’s office. The statement came yesterday afternoon as Ford remained under observation at the Humber River Regional Hospital. Ford checked himself in to the hospital Tuesday

evening, not initially specifying the reason, after having missed a news conference announcing new garbage contracting. According to the statement from his office, Ford missed the “important announcement due to what was believed to be an adverse reaction to food.” In the evening, Ford went to hospital and was examined and admit-

ted for overnight observation. “Since then, he has undergone a number of routine tests and remains under doctor’s care,” the statement reads. “Doctors have identified an irritation in the mayor’s throat and stomach which have aggravated his asthma and he is being treated for those conditions.” Ford “is in good spirits and is resting comfortably.”

Joanne Banfield, manager, trauma injury prevention Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, demonstrates the danger of texting and driving during a news conference by CAA, the ministry of transportation and the OPP on distracted driving last Wednesday at the Grandprix Kartways.

Distracted driving campaign kicks off RAHUL GUPTA scm@insidetoronto.com Kevin Sack has a message for motorists who feel they need to constantly text or make calls while on the road: use transit instead. “That’s a good idea,” said Sack, a vice president of communications for 407 ETR, which owns and operates the 407 toll highway. “I don’t think anyone has something so important they have to take their own life, or the life of others, just because they have to communicate.” Sack, who was once a spokesperson for the City of Toronto, was part of a group of helmeted volunteers last Wednesday demonstrating the dangers of distracted driving, some of them texting from a phone while attempting to maneuver an electric go-kart along a racetrack at Grand Prix Kartways, located inside Downsview Park. “You can’t concentrate on both texting and driving, you just can’t,” he said afterward. “Maybe if you’re stationary or at your computer, but not operating a vehicle.” The demonstration was part of a press conference for the Missing Anti-Distracted Driving Campaign, organized by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), the provincial min-

istry of transportation and a traffic safety coalition made up of various organizations formed to spread awareness of the dangers of driving while distracted, which was the cause of 53 deaths in Ontario last year. The four-week campaign, which began officially earlier this month, highlights the important milestones of life like graduating high school or getting married that could be lost forever thanks to the careless actions of distracted drivers, who are 23 times more likely to suffer a serious automobile accident if texting, said Don Bell of the OPP. “If you drive while distracted you’re putting yourself, your passengers and members of the public at risk,” he said. Bell, chief superintendent of the OPP’s highway safety division, said the force investigated more than 7,500 collisions on provincial highways in 2011, all of which were caused by the “irresponsible” choices of drivers. He urged drivers to refrain from any activities that averted their attention from the road, from brushing their hair or fiddling with the radio. “Even a moment’s distraction can be dangerous,” he said. Teresa Di Felice from the CAA said the Missing campaign was designed to focus on all drivers. “It applies to everybody,

every age group,” said Di Felice, director of government and media relations. “It’s about focusing on your own behaviours and what you can do to change them.” She said CAA was examining current enforcement of the ban on hand-held devices while driving, which was introduced by the Ontario government in 2009, but not prepared at this time to lobby for higher penalties. “We’re always open to discussing if there should be changes, but the issue is not easy to enforce,” she said. “Education is the first step in actually being able to reach people.” The current fine for using a hand-held device while driving is $155. Despite the slow speeds of the go-karts, driver Joanne Banfield said her heart was racing as she took part in the demonstration. “We’re in a controlled environment so the potential is low for injury,” said Banfield, a manager at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. “On the road, we don’t often drive at 15 kilometres per hour. People who are texting might, but they’re definitely not paying attention.” n For transit and commuter news on Twitter, follow @ TOinTransit
