Scarborough NHLers set for season’s start Zoo’s polar bear Hudson making move to Winnipeg NORM NELSON nnelson@insidetoronto.com

When the National Hockey League finally kicks off its abridged season this weekend, several Scarborough players will be suiting up, including one player involved in a recent trade. Just as the hastily convened training camps got underway on

Sunday, Jan. 12, Anthony Stewart found himself acquired by the Los Angeles Kings by way of trade from the Carolina Hurricanes. Stewart, 28, who played a brief 19-game stint during the lockout overseas in Nottingham, compiling 11 points (six goals, five assists) in 19 games, has played in 262 career NHL games with the Hurricanes, Atlanta Thrashers and Florida Panthers,

recording 71 points (27 goals, 44 assists) in 262 games. Last year for Carolina he had 20 points (nine goals, 11 assists) in 77 games. As a result of the trade he’ll get to see his 25-year-old brother Chris Stewart, at least twice this winter with L.A. playing two games against the St. Louis Blues (Feb. 11 and March 5). >>>NUMBER, page 11

On the run at Variety Village

Ainslie considers budget chief job DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Photos/JAMES MACDONALD

CROSSING THE FINISH LINE: Above, Variety Village runner Latrell Carter (845) crosses the finish line first in the atom boys’ 50 metre dash preliminaries during the third annual Variety Village All Comers Track Classic on Sunday. Daunte Heron, of Pickering’s Speed Academy placed first in the finals with a time of 7.34. Meet director Bill Stephens said this was the most successful meet yet with more than 400 runners competing including shot put and running events for para-athletes.

Nobody’s asked him yet, but Scarborough East Councillor Paul Ainslie says he’d be more than willing to fill the shoes of outgoing budget chief Mike Del Grande, should he be invited. “If it was offered to me I’d be very interested in doing it,” said Ainslie, who currently chairs the city’s government management committee and also the Toronto Public Library Board. Ainslie made the comments the day after Toronto Council approved its 2013 operating and capital budgets — and the morning after budget chair Mike Del Grande announced that this would be his last budget. Del Grande, the councillor for Ward 39 Scarborough-Agincourt, resigned from the post he held for two years after what he termed a “vilification” of his service as budget chief at council. Councillors voted to increase the $9.4 billion budget by $12 million, adding in funding for firefighters, student nutrition programs and daycare spaces. Del Grande had earlier prom-

Hospitals considering options for future MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Options for determining the future of The Scarborough Hospital should be released to the public by the first week of February, a senior TSH administrator said yesterday. Both TSH and the Rouge Valley Health System, Scarborough’s other hospital, are in the midst of strategic reorganizations prompted, they say, by changes in health care funding and the need to run themselves more efficiently. On Tuesday, TSH board members were shown findings of the hospital’s Performance Improvement Committee and from the Hay Group, a firm gathering data for TSH which

acted as facilitators. “They helped us identify options,” Anne Marie Males, TSH vice president of patient experience said yesterday. “There was a presentation and discussion of the options.” The board, Males said, agreed all the options “seemed viable” and they should be sent to the hospital’s stakeholders for discussion. On Monday, a sub-committee of staff and community members will finalize an engagement plan for this part of the process. Though not public yet, Males said the options for TSH concern “how to configure our services to create a strong and distinctive role” for both the Birchmount and General campuses, though the board has said the review

won’t threaten 24-hour emergency department services or their necessary supports at either campus. The committee, consisting of chief physicians and administrators of each department, will meanwhile be “fleshing out the options,” many of which would be implemented over more than one year, before bringing them to a board meeting in early March. For months now, the hospital has tried to explain to residents the context in which its decisions must be made, asking what is important to them and presenting its side of the situation. “These aren’t simple issues,” said Males, adding more than 600 people at 40 community meetings received this information, and many asked

to be involved in later stages of the process. RVHS has also held community meetings in order to stress to Scarborough residents concerned about services at its Centenary or Ajax campuses there are big changes coming to Ontario’s health care system. “We know that choosing which specialties to focus our resources on will result in better outcomes,” Rouge Valley’s CEO Rik Ganderton wrote on his blog last month. “We also know that everyone would much prefer to have everything available in their local hospitals.” This will result in a “balancing act” and there are “hard decisions ahead,” added Ganderton.

ised to quit if council added to his budget. But he said that the clincher was a motion by St. Paul’s Councillor Joe Mihevc, asking for a report on having greater transparency in the budget process. Del Grande handed in his resignation Wednesday night, and in a television interview yesterday offered only the slim possibility that he might return to the position. “If they had a vote and unanimously said come back, I think that would send me a different message,” said Del Grande. “But the probability of that are next to none.” Reached yesterday, Mihevc said his motion was not meant to be a personal criticism of Del Grande, but was just about making the budget process easier to follow. It’s so complicated and involves so much paper it’s hard for councillors to understand, let alone the public, Mihevc said. “Anyone who can follow the budget process has to be a Sherlock Holmes.” Mihevc said he’s had political disagreements with Del Grande, but the motion was supposed to be “innocuous and friendly,” and Del Grande did not asked him about it before the vote. As a former vice-chair of the budget committee, he added, he knows the budget chief’s job is a hard one, but the idea of Del Grande’s resignation as a reaction to his motion is “totally bizarre,” Mihevc said. The question of who will take up the job of budget chief is now open. The position is widely regarded as the most time-consuming appointment on council, and few are interested. Scarborough Southwest Councillor Gary Crawford, a budget committee member, said he wouldn’t consider it. Ainslie, however, said he’d be willing to try. “I ran my own business for 15 years, I worked for David Soknacki when he was budget chief from 2003 to 2006, and I was vice chair from 2006 to 2010,” he said.

Casino debate: add your voice W

ith the deadline for public input on the ongoing casino debate coming up next week, we encourage all Torontonians to take the opportunity to do so. It’s a debate with two strong our view opposing views – both that will impact the city and the residents Issue impacts who live in it whether they City of Toronto gamble or not. The lure of having a casino in as a whole the city is the potential revenue that it can bring in to help fund city-building projects such as much-needed transit improvements. A report issued by the Toronto Taxpayers Coalition recently estimated $400 million could be generated annually – enough to pay for one new subway station and one kilometre of track each year. Even if that projected dollar figure seems high, a city report released late last year indicated the fiscal benefits for a Toronto casino would be enough to virtually solve the city’s annual operating budget problems. But is it worth the potential cost that might arise from problem gambling, which can lead to other public health problems, as Toronto’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown suggests? “The overall evidence is that an increase in availability of gambling leads to more problem gambling,” said McKeown, adding that currently about 0.2 per cent of the population are severe problem gamblers, translating to about 11,000 people in the Greater Toronto Area. Another concern is that more problem gamblers could equate to an increase in crime in Toronto. City manager Joe Pennachetti noted the consultation findings will assist in preparing his report to the city’s executive committee. That committee will consider the possible establishment of a casino in the city at its March 20 meeting. The decision to establish a city casino will have implications affecting the whole of the community, and public input will be essential to help guide the decision-making process. Residents can attend the final community consultation session taking place this Saturday, Jan. 19 at Bluma Appel Salon Reference Library, 789 Yonge St., from 1 to 4 p.m. Residents can also fill out the online feedback form available at https://surveys.dpra.com/casino/ CasinoSurvey.aspx newsroom

Scarborough residents need to stand up against media’s unfair portrayal To the editor: Re: ‘Lazy media reports portray unfair image of Scarborough,’ Letters, Jan. 10. I was delighted to read Dennis Peter’s letter. Like him, I do my part by writing to all three groups of opinion makers regarding their liberal use of ‘Scarborough’ when reporting negative news events. You will never hear the former city of North York mentioned by name when crime occurs at Jane and Finch. It is shocking the amount of biased reporting published

or broadcast by the media in this city. Not in North York For instance, in early November when a man broke into a residence in the Avenue Road and Lawrence Avenue West area and sexually assaulted two women, the term ‘North York’ was never mentioned. Had that crime occurred in Scarborough, the reports would almost certainly have been different. Where I disagree with Peter is in his contention the biggest improvement that anyone could make for the

Scarborough community can only be done by you (the editor) and your colleagues in the Toronto media. I believe the biggest improvement can be made by the citizens of Scarborough, who can make their points by boycotting those media outlets who consistently engage in biased news reporting. If you care about your city (Scarborough) and want to do your part, then report biased reporting to the source and boycott the media outlets who refuse to change their tune. I did. Bev McCarthy

To the editor: Re: ‘A look at the realities of the interim mayor label,’ Beyond the Headlines, Jan. 11. David Soknacki brings up a good point about the problem with an interim mayor. Justice Charles Hackland was correct to remove Mayor Rob Ford from office. The ruling has quickly become a catalyst for more angst. If council does appoint from within, does that councilor have two roles or do they give up on their ward, a new problem raised. If they appoint from outside council, can they restrict that person’s aspirations to the office via the electorate? Could they find someone to be the mayor knowing he is powerless? Should the city have a byelection costing upward of $9 million only to have a full election in two years, at the end of this term? More problems. As it stands now, Ford steps aside and begins to campaign now. This would be unfair to contenders for the mayor’s office. One simple solution exists, but at what cost and circumstance? The mayor could be prohibited from running for election for five years, but be allowed to finish his current term under restrictions – in essence, he would be a neutered mayor with no voting rights, not even to break a tie and no rights to raise motions. The city and its residents should not have to pay for his wrong-doing. As it stands, that is what we are doing. Glenn Kitchen

Zoo’s polar bear set for Winnipeg >>>from page 1 Hudson was lucky he even survived his first few days after being born at the Toronto Zoo. His mother, Aurora, turned on her litter of three cubs, killing two of them before zoo staff rescued Hudson, who weighed only 700 grams at the time. Hudson was raised by zoo staff and has since grown to weigh more than 400 pounds. The move to the Assiniboine zoo is Hudson’s next step to becoming a mature male polar bear in the hopes that he will be paired with a female in the future and contribute to the Species Survival Plan (SSP) breeding program, the Toronto Zoo said. The Assiniboine zoo has recently completed the International Polar Bear Conservation Centre – a key component of the new 10-acre Journey to Churchill exhibit currently under construction. Hudson will be the first polar bear to inhabit this new facility prior to moving into Journey to Churchill in 2014. Full details about Hudson’s new home can be found at www.imag-

ineaplace.ca/zoo-renewal/journeyto-churchill. “This is very exciting for all of us here at the Assiniboine Park Zoo and we can’t wait to welcome Hudson into our zoo family,” said Tim Sinclair-Smith, director of zoological operations at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, in a release. arrival “His arrival marks a significant step in our polar bear program and conservation efforts as we move closer to the opening of the Journey to Churchill in 2014.” Once Hudson has departed to his new home, the Toronto Zoo will continue the polar bear breeding program and pair male, Inukshuk, with sisters Aurora (Hudson’s mother) and Nikita. Last December, the Toronto Zoo announced that Aurora most recent litter of three cubs died. However, unlike Hudson’s case, Aurora seemed to accept her role as mother, the zoo said at the time. Zoo staff said the new litter was

nurturing and nursing the other two. A few days later, though, those cubs had also died, for reasons the

zoo said were unclear. – With files from Mike Adler

TTC report favours subway to replace Scarborough RT DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Scarborough Centre Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker is banking that a report by TTC staff indicating that replacing the Scarborough SRT line with a full-bore subway would cost $500 million will be enough to resuscitate debate on the issue. “This report breathes fresh breath into the One City transit proposal,” said De Baeremaeker. “It says you can do it and do it at a reasonable amount of money.” De Baememaeker and TTC Chair Karen Stintz had pitched council last spring on a proposal for a massive, city-led public transit build that would have put light rail, buses and subways across Toronto. De Baeremaeker tried to convince council to approve the plan and prioritize as the first project a replacement of the aging Scarborough SRT line running from Kennedy Station to McCowan Road. The line is currently slated for replacement with light rail by Metrolinx, its cost of $2.3 billion covered by the provincial government. A subway, according to TTC staff,

would cost $2.8 billion. The report says the corridor could be “effectively served by either light rail or subway. A subway replacement would offer the benefit of a transfer-free ride through Kennedy Station and a higher speed than light rail. A light rail replacement would offer the benefit of greater geographical coverage and better local walk access for twice as many residents and workers, and would cost less to build.” The report also recommends that the commission avoid “another prolonged debate over the future of the Scarborough RT, which might jeopardize Metrolinx’s commitment to fully rehabilitate and expand the deteriorating Scarborough RT.” The report also pours cold water on the idea of a subway along Sheppard Avenue, saying, “overall, the corridor would be effectively served by light rail transit, with greater overall coverage, ample capacity of future growth, and a much-lower cost than a subway.” The report comes to the Toronto Transit Commission Monday for information only. If the commission wishes to debate it, it will have to do so at its February meeting.

Optimum Service & Outstanding Results! Mary Jane

GTA resale market heats up Realtors release mid-month resale housing figures; ‘cautiously optimistic’ about city’s housing market Even though outside temperatures are frigid, the city’s real estate market is unexpectedly heating up in the first weeks of 2013 after nearly half a year of slowing sales. Greater Toronto realtors reported 1,469 sales through the TorontoMLS system during the first two weeks of January 2013. This result represented an increase of 2.4 per cent over the 1,435 transactions reported during the same period in 2012. "The New Year started off on a positive note with residential sales slightly above last year’s levels,” says Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President Ann Hannah. “I am cautiously optimistic about this result. It will be important to watch sales trends closely as we move through

the first quarter to see if some of the households who moved to the sidelines as a result of stricter lending guidelines are starting to renew their decision to purchase a home.” The average selling price during the first 14 days of 2013 was by up by four per cent on a year-over-year basis to $459,728. “Continuing the trend from 2012, the lowrise segment of the market experienced the strongest price growth as competition between buyers remained quite strong,” says Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis. “The average selling price is expected to grow in 2013, but at a slower pace as buyers benefit from more choice.” – with files from TREB

>>>from page 1 Chris endured a bit of a disappointing campaign last year with 30 points (15 goals, 15 assists) in 79 games, well under his previous two years’ totals. Both players were raised in Scarborough – Anthony attended Birchmount Park Collegiate while Chris attended West Hill Collegiate. Other Scarborough players to watch out for in this shortened NHL season include: Wayne Simmonds, 24, of the Philadelhia Flyers. Simmonds is coming off his best season, recording 49 points (28 goals, 21 assists) in 82 games for the Flyers. He attended Birchmount Park Collegiate. Joel Ward, 32, notched 18 points (six goals, 12 assists) last season in 73 games with the Washington Capitals. Ward, who previously played for the Nashville Predators, has also been a productive playoff player with 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) in 32 games. He grew up in the same Scarborough neighbourhood as former NHL goalie Kevin Weekes, now a Hockey Night In Canada colour commentator, both attending Chester Le Junior Public School. Devante Smith-Pelly, 20, will try to build on a strong rookie campaign in

which he contributed 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 49 games for the Anaheim Ducks. For the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League, this season, he had contributed 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 34 games. He’s a former Birchmount Park Collegiate student. Jump from junior Tyler Toffoli, 20, is trying to make the jump to the Los Angeles Kings directly from a stellar Ontario Hockey League (OHL) career, which saw him win the goal scoring title last season and the overall (and goal) scoring title the year before. This season, he made a seamless jump to the AHL, compiling impressive numbers for the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs with 29 points (18 goals, 11 assists) in 35 games. That left him tied for the league lead in goals-scored for rookies. Toffoli got his start in hockey in the Scarborough Hockey Association and is a former student at Birchmount Park Collegiate. Brandon Pirri, 21, is Toronto Beaches born and raised but went to Birchmount Park Collegiate for two years (and Vaughan Road Academy for the other two years).

Photo/DEBORA ROBINSON

Scarborough’s Devante Smith-Pelly, shown here in action with the Anaheim Ducks last season, is hoping his solid play earlier this season with the American Hockey League’s Norfolk Admirals will help him crack the Ducks’ lineup as the National Hockey League resumes play this weekend.

He’s had a couple of pit stops in the NHL for the Chicago Blackhawks with five games last year and one game the previous season (notching two assists).

But he has been recalled for training camp from the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL where he was having a good season with 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists) in 38 games.

Police seize loaded gun at school Four people have been charged with a combined 42 offences after a gun was seized at Blessed Mother Teresa Catholic Secondary School on Wednesday. Police attended the Sewells Road and Mclevin Avenue school after receiving a Crime Stoppers tip about a gun at the school. The school was placed in lockdown as police searched the building. Police allege a gun was placed in a bag and was in the possession of four young people. A girl attempted to leave the school with the bag during the lockdown and was arrested by police after a loaded .357 Magnum handgun was allegedly found inside the bag. All four of the accused are under the age of 18. Their names cannot be released under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
