Trucking of sewage in Scarborough put on hold MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com The City of Toronto conceded last week it needs a study taking one year and costing up to $1 million to settle the question of what to do with solid waste from the Highland Creek sewage plant. Toronto Council had settled on a “beneficial use” solution for the sewage – trucking dried waste up to Hwy. 401 and sending it to landfills if necessary – as part of the city’s Biosolids Master Plan (BMP), and the decision was confirmed last year. Though popular in Scarborough communities to the west, trucking out the waste was unpopular in neighbourhoods nearest the plant, and with the neighbourhood liaison committee consulted during six years of study for the BMP. ENVIRONMENT MINISTRY “Several local community members” expressed their concerns to the city and Ontario’s environment ministry after council’s decision last May, and provincial approval for the BMP “has been delayed as a result,” said a staff report to the public works and infrastructure committee. The report concludes an environmental assessment is necessary to revisit the decision because the residents are expected to request the province order a higher level study to address what they consider outstanding issues in the BMP. That could significantly delay the city’s plans not only at Highland >>>PROVINCIAL, page 11

Toronto Police Staff Insp. Greg McLane speaks about the Danzig Street shooting investigation at police headquarters yesterday afternoon. Police announced Nahom Tsegazab has been arrested and charged with two counts of second degree murder, attempt murder and 22 counts of aggravated assault.

Second man charged with Danzig murders MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Toronto police announced yesterday afternoon that they have charged a second man, Nahom Tsegazab, with murder in the Danzig Street mass shooting. Shyanne Charles, 14, and Joshua Yasay, 23, were killed July 16 during a street party at the townhouse complex by Morningside and Lawrence avenues during what police say was

an exchange of gunfire between members of the Galloway Boys street gang and rivals from Malvern. Bullets fired at the party also wounded another 23 people. Days after the shooting, Nahom Tsegazab, 19, one of those wounded in the incident, was charged with reckless discharge of a firearm. At a news conference Thursday, police, who have identified Tsegazab as a Galloway Boy, said he had been arrested again and had appeared

that morning in a Scarborough courtroom, charged with two counts of second-degree murder, attempted murder and 22 counts of aggravated assault. FIRST-DEGREE MURDER CHARGES Two weeks ago, police charged Shaquan Mesquito, 18, allegedly a member of the Malvern Crew, with two counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder and 23 counts

Tamil community remembers civil war MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Maaveerar Naal, annual practices honouring Tamil dead in Sri Lanka’s civil war continue in Scarborough, but there is some disagreement on how long the solemn remembrance period should last. Local ceremonies for the thousands of separatist Tamil “martyrs” were for years held during the week leading to Nov. 27, the day the first Tamil Tiger casualty, a Lieutenant Shankar, is said to have died in combat. The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam were defeated as the decades-long war ended in 2009, but Maaveerar Naal remains. This year, however, the Tamil Youth Organization - Canada announced student groups had dedicated the entire month of November “as a month of purity and remembrance” in which they will “seek to protect and promote Tamil Identity” on their campuses. “The month of November is dedicated solely to remembering, commemorating and reflecting on the sacrifices of our fallen heroes,” said the statement, which was signed by 11 Tamil student groups including the University of Toronto Scarborough Tamil Students’ Association. “Therefore, we kindly ask all students, youth and community members to withhold from orga-

nizing and participating in events not associated with our martyrs as a symbol of respect for their sacrifice.” The Scarborough-based Canadian Tamil Congress issued its own statement late last month after the group “received numerous inquiries” about the issue. While acknowledging Maaveerar Naal is “an important time for most Tamils to remember and respect the lives perished in the civil war,” and stressing it was not endorsing any position on its length, the Congress voiced disagreement with an “attempt by certain individuals or organizations to mark the entire calendar month of November as ‘Maaveerar month’ - thereby unilaterally declaring it as a month where activities that involve entertainment and leisure (are) frowned upon.” “This is something new that has come up only now with no historical reference or relevance,” the statement said, adding the Congress “remains concerned that these views should not be forced upon the community nor should these views be used to intimidate others into following certain beliefs.” People can decide to observe Maaveerar Naal for a full month and to avoid entertainment or leisure activities, “but in a free and fair society, you cannot force something onto others,” David Poopalapillai, CTC national spokesperson, added this week.

“There’s no room for this kind of hardline talking in Canada.” Attempts this week to reach a spokesperson for TYO - Canada, which has a Scarborough post office box as a mailing address, and the UTSC TSA, which planned to hold a Maaveerar Naal event last

night at the Meeting Place on the Scarborough campus, were unsuccessful. Another remembrance ceremony in Scarborough is planned for this Sunday at the Metropolitan Centre on Finch Avenue for what TYO Canada calls “a youth Maaveerar

Naal.” In its statement, TYO - Canada and the student groups urged continued “central use” in remembrance events of the “national symbols of Tamil Eelam,” which include the Karththikaipoo, a lily sometimes called the November flower.

Police “have reason to believe that there are at minimum one or two more shooters involved in this investigation” that have not been charged, the release added.

MP Chow seeks stronger witness protection program ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com Toronto MP Olivia Chow is calling on the federal government to strengthen the witness protection program after police last week announced murder charges against a man in the Danzig shooting case and appealed for more witnesses to come forward. Chow, the NDP MP for the downtown riding of Trinity-Spadina, said police forces across Canada have been demanding an expanded federal witness program for several years. “There’s a provincial witness protection program but if it’s a federal prosecution like drug-related murders...the RCMP runs a program but

they charge full cost recovery. It’s very expensive,” Chow said. “The local police have been saying since 2007 that it would be great if the federal government can come on side and have an agreement with the local police forces and make sure that it’s not so expensive.” The RCMP witness protection program assessed 108 people but took in just 30 at a cost of $9.1 million in the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Only four of the protectees accepted came from other law enforcement agencies. Toronto police spokesman Mark Pugash said the force is “exploring ways” to improve services offered to witnesses. “We are very mindful of the con-

cerns that some people have for not coming forward, and we’re trying to do whatever we can to improve and increase the services that we can offer to witnesses to reassure them so that they can come forward with confidence.” Police use a variety of approaches when protecting witnesses. “It might be going to a different school, living in a different area,” Pugash said. “It doesn’t always require what most people assume to be witness protection, but assessments are made on what is most appropriate under the circumstances.” Liberal MP John McKay (Scarborough-Guildwood) said changes to criminal procedures

could also help protect witnesses. “Within 35 days of the case, the crown has to disclose their entire witness list and then the trial doesn’t necessarily happen for six months or a year or two, so for all of that period of time, the potential witness lives in the community, presumably beside or near or at least known to the accused,” McKay said. “Either the time period (should be) shortened or you could have an exemption from disclosure, disclose in a non-identifying fashion.” McKay, in whose riding Danzig Street is located, said the “chief problem” with the witness protection program is that “not everyone wants to go to Saskatchewan to live for the rest of their lives.”

It’s time for teachers and the province to get along

Show riders what TTC fare hike pays for I

t should come as no surprise the Toronto Transit Commission approved a five-cent increase on tokens, to $2.65, in the new year. A fare increase should be expected, if Torontonians want the public transit system they deserve. That said, with last year’s increase of 10 cents, this week’s five-cent increase, and a our view warning from TTC chair Karen Stintz that riders should expect Riders bearing the same kind of inflationary hike in 2014, Torontonians should start to raise an eyebrow brunt of transit or two. With ridership projected costs in city to grow by 25 million rides to 528 million in 2014, there are plenty of transit-riding Torontonians who should pipe up with their concerns – and hopefully some ideas. An increase in fares makes sense, but should come with a focus on building and improving public transit. Raise rates, hold to current spending, and direct all revenues from those increased rates toward a specific infrastructure improvement. The 2013 increase will raise $18 million, which will close a $10-million gap in the TTC operating budget – a budget the TTC approved on Wednesday. However, if the TTC were to raise fares by 10 cents, that would bring in approximately $36 million – a drop in the bucket for anything the TTC needs to do, especially when it takes $1 billion per kilometre to build a subway. But it’s a start. Imagine a one-year increase of 50 cents or a flat transportation tax across the board for a set time. Raising billions would be easier. This does not cure all the TTC’s woes, but it might help bring Toronto one station closer to a better subway system. With an operating budget that was to remain flat next year at approximately $411 million, Stintz said the TTC will ask the city manager for a subsidy increase for 2014. Will the TTC then reduce rates? Not likely. They will only increase those rates as inflationary pressures continue. The TTC’s public consultations of a few years ago should be an ongoing process, not just one that comes up when the TTC needs to raise its profile, deflect criticism, or improve its image. The TTC must learn from its users. Whatever your mode of transportation, it’s obvious public transit is a concern. All manner of revenuegenerating ideas have been suggested, but only fares are hiked. If this is the only option, make sure those paying the fares know where the money is going and for what. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

To the editor: I am 10 years old and in Grade 5. I love sports and participate in many extracurricular activities in my school, and this teachers’ conflict is hitting kids like a ton of bricks. It came out of nowhere. They didn’t ask us what we wanted. Did they think this wouldn’t affect us? All kids in schools are affected by this horrible mess. It’s a disgrace to children and parents. Our education doesn’t only occur in the classrooms. It takes place on the playing fields, in the gymnasiums, on the diamonds and in so many other locations that extra-curricular activities takes students. We need teachers back. It’s not their needs, it’s ours. How it gets done is up to the province and the unions. We learn to get along in the classrooms, and the province and teachers should, too. Kayla Herrington

My festive cup has not runneth over this year

I

t was an absolutely gorgeous Saturday so I went for a longer morning run than I normally do to take advantage, and after I was done I made a pit stop at The Perpetually Trendy Upscale Coffee Establishment in my neighbourhood. I’ve always thought that handle was a rather wordy choice for the well-known franchise but seeing as how it is typically standing room only inside and outside the place every morning, the company obviously knows what it’s doing. Anyhow, when my coffee cup arrived it didn’t have the usual unmistakable trademark design. I did a double take. Actually, it was more like a quintuple take. Canadian figure skating sensation Patrick Chan seated nearby gave me a high five and what he thought was a

but seriously

toonie that fell out of my pocket during my quadruple routine and rolled under his table. Truth to be told, it was one of the brand new threenies. A toonie doesn’t go very far in The Perpetually Trendy Upscale Coffee Establishment. But back to matter at hand. I mean, IN hand, the unfamiliar cup. It was red with wintry images all over it. I didn’t recognize it without my reading coffee cup glasses that I didn’t have with me because I don’t need them for jogging. The cashier said it was a festive cup, which The Perpetually Trendy Upscale Coffee

Establishment uses to celebrate the holidays. The only holiday at this time of year is U.S. Thanksgiving. Shouldn’t there have been a turkey on it? I asked. She said she was referring to the holidays at the end of next month. It was Nov. 17, felt like April 17 and I was wearing a T-shirt and shorts. I was thinking about today, not days six weeks from now. So I ran home as fast as my little legs could carry me put on my reading coffee cup glasses, which are also handy for perusing words in the dictionary, and I looked up the word “festive.” Maybe it didn’t mean what I thought it meant all these years. The words “merry” and “joyous” appeared. That’s what I thought it meant. So I glanced back at the cup. It didn’t make me feel merry or joyous about holidays a

month-and-a-half away. On Sunday, I headed downtown to catch the Santa Claus Parade. That lifted my spirits, so afterwards I dropped into The Perpetually Trendy Upscale Coffee Establishment in that neighbourhood and this time I brought my reading coffee cup glasses AND dictionary to help me get with the program. But again, all I saw was a cup that still looked terribly out of place. Oh well, you can’t fight festive cups in midNovember. It’s clear they’re not going away any time soon, so I’ve got to ditch my reading coffee cup glasses once and for all. n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously.

Caa Store - Scarborough, 3563 Lawrence Ave. E., Cedarbrae Mall • 416-439-6371

A 19-year-old Scarborough swimmer has won gold at an international competition in Italy. After a long year of fundraising to be able to make the trip to compete internationally, Nicole Flynn won top honours at the sixth international DSISO (Down Syndrome International Swimming Organization) Swimming Championships held recently in Loano, Italy. With a Canadian flag signed by her teammates on her shoulders, Flynn received her medal as the Canadian flag was raised and O Canada played. Flynn has been swimming synchro in Canada for years and has won more than 50 gold medals in competition, but this was her first time on the international stage. Still, going into Italy, she was confident she would do well. Marta Cantero of Italy was favoured by many to win and local news reports were shocked when she ended up with the silver on home soil. Both Flynn and Cantero received identical marks for overall impression. However, Flynn was awarded .667 higher in execution for the win with a total of 64.3 to Cantero’s 63.6. Flynn is also competing in speed swimming competitions at the DSISO Championships. Right after competing her synchro solo, she swam the 4x50 metre relay on the Canadian team, where they placed seventh in the world.

Scarborough high school teams at OFSAA championships The high school fall sports season has almost wrapped up with the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) provincial championship tournaments now underway in both boys volleyball and girls basketball. And Scarborough high schools are represented at the top 4A level in both sports – Pope John Paul Catholic Secondary competing in girls basketball in London and Dr. Norman Bethune Collegiate competing in boys volleyball in Hamilton. Pope John Paul is ninth ranked of the 16 teams and they’re followed by the other two Toronto teams, Eastern Commerce Collegiate and Northern Secondary, ranked 10th and 11th respectively. In boys volleyball, Bethune is ranked 13th of the 16 teams with the other Toronto teams also being lowly ranked – St. Michael’s College at 12th and Michael Power/St. Joseph at 15th. Bethune won last week’s Toronto District School Board ( TDSB) 4A championship game 3-0 over North York’s William Lyon Mackenzie. The junior boys championship was also won by a Scarborough high school with Sir John A Macdonald Collegiate sweeping York Mills Collegiate 2-0. The championship wins capped off undefeated seasons at the board-level in both the playoffs and regular season for the two Scarborough volleyball teams. Scarborough is also represented in OFSAA

Condo proposal for Knob Hill A non-profit company wants to build a condominium tower behind three existing Danforth Road rental highrises in a deal – it says – will benefit highrise tenants and the surrounding area. Options for Homes took a zoning amendment application to Scarborough Community Council this month, asking for land to be severed at the rear of 1340, 1350 and 1360 Danforth Rd., identical buildings north of Eglinton Avenue. The company would build an 18-storey, 277-unit condominium tower at the property’s western edge, beside Knob Hill Park, and create a private drive and walkway to Danforth Road. The existing 15-storey highrises will remain, but a total of 14 new rental units would be created on their ground floors as part of the proposal. A convenience store, unused pool and

change rooms and a place of worship would be converted to apartments under the plan, but a party room and a gym for residents of the rental buildings would also be created. Added tenants on the ground floors “will increase security on site,” Jessica Speziale, the company’s marketing coordinator, said in a message last week.Options for Homes sells its condo units at cost, and Speziale said “our intent is to add cost-effective ownership buildings into several apartment neighbourhoods thus adding the positive energy of homeowners to these areas.” The company said all condo units in its Danforth Road tower will be classified as affordable housing and almost half will have two bedrooms. This week, Glenn De Baeremaeker, the local councillor said he would host a community meeting on the proposal, probably in January or February.

Provincial study on city’s sewage treatment plans STORE CLOSING STORES OPEN AT

>>>from page 1 Creek but at three other sewage treatment plants. Completed in 2009, the BMP had recommended replacing Highland Creek’s multiple hearth incineration system, which is now four decades old, with more modern fluidized bed incinerators. Instead, council chose a plan that will remove the incinerators and sell whatever percentage of the treated biosolids it can, building a truck loading facility at the plant to contain odours.

Incineration option Scarborough East Councillor Ron Moeser supported the incineration option and called the latest turn of events a “real conundrum.” “The province thinks it’s a flawed process (leading to the decision). Council thinks it did the right thing,” said Moeser, adding he thinks council made a mistake. “There’s something wrong when we get into a bind like this.” Three local community associations asked the ministry to order a higher-level study through what is called a Part II Order request, and are happy with this development, Moeser said. “That obviously worked.”

This week, Kate Jordan, a ministry spokesperson, said ministry staff reviewed the BMP, and since council “did not vote in favour of the preferred alternative identified in the BMP for biosolids management at Highland (Creek), a new environmental assessment will be completed to assess the future of biosolids at the facility.” In the meantime, because the new study hasn’t started, residents requesting a bump-up have been told their requests are premature, she said. City staff have estimated the study should take nine to 12 months to complete and cost between $500,000 to $1 million, suggesting the higher figures may be needed to deal with Part II Order requests. Provincial changes Moeser said that a request for proposals was automatically triggered by the committee’s vote last week to receive the report. The province requires a change to either fluidized bed incinerators or beneficial use by 2020, when new emissions requirements take effect. However, since the aging plant incinerators continue to pollute air in the meantime, surrounding communities won’t benefit from the latest delay, Moeser said.

done is to penalize people for using public transit,” said Hartmann following the decision. It’s about to get more expensive to Hartmann, who made a coride the TTC presentation to the TTC board At its monthly meeting this week, opposing the fare hike, said he the transit agency’s board of commissioners voted to approve the 2013 operating, capital and WheelTrans budgets and also approved an increase in the price of all fares, excluding cash, to take effect starting Jan. 1. As a result of the increase, tokens will go up by five cents to $2.65, while a monthly Metropass will rise to $128.50, an increase of $2.50. Cash fares would remain at $3 per ride. TTC chair Karen Stintz said the fare increase was at the level of inflation and necessary for balancing the 2013 operating budget. “We don’t want to raise fares if we don’t have to, there’s no question,” said Stintz to reporters following the conclusion of the meeting at Toronto City Hall. “We understand the impact. Those who rely on the system most are most affected by fare increases.”

understood the TTC’s burden in ensuring its budgets remain balanced, but said it was unfair to rely on ridership to meet the fiscal imbalance. “Transit riders keep on being

Inflationary hike She also said a similar inflationary fare hike was in store for 2014. “If ridership continues to grow and our costs continue to grow there will likely be an inflationary fare increase next year,” she said. Stintz said the TTC had already approached city manager Joe Pennachetti regarding an increase in the subsidy it receives from the city for its operations. “Those discussions are underway and I expect that next year we will see an increase to our subsidy,” she said. But that came as little solace to Franz Hartmann of the TTCriders advocacy group who pointed out that at 87-cents per rider, Toronto has the lowest amount of subsidy for transit than anywhere else in North America despite record ridership. “Essentially what the board has

They won’t be ready to ride until 2014, but the TTC recently gave residents a sneak peek at the first of the new sleek modern light rail vehicles to replace the city’s aging streetcar fleet. Representatives from all three levels of government were on hand at the TTC’s Hillcrest complex to tour the new streetcar. The new low-floor Bombardier LRVs will be 25 feet longer than their articulated predecessors, allowing for 68 more passengers. The interior of the vehicle will contain no steps, allowing riders with mobility issues to board with ease according to a fact sheet provided by the TTC. The new vehicles, which have a top speed of 70 kilometres per hour, are fully air-conditioned and provide space for bicycles as well as designated areas for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. TTC spokesperson Brad Ross said the new streetcars will run on the Presto fare system. Each vehicle will have Presto card readers riders can tap, as well as two automated ticket dispensers that will issue receipts that double as transfers. Ross said the vehicle will be on the streets in 2013, but only for testing purposes. If all goes well, the new vehicles could be in service in early 2014.

wellness Achieve fitness goals on your own terms Many of us want to get fit, but with the pressures of daily life, starting and staying on fitness plan can be hard. The good news is that achieving your fitness goals is possible if you stick to a realistic plan that suits your lifestyle. Here are some tips to get you started on your path to reaching your best self:

Set realistic goals Whether you want to lose weight, tone up, or just increase your physical activity, it’s important to set goals that are realistic and fit with your lifestyle. It’s important to start small, build your confidence and set yourself up for success.

Have a plan to keep on track Whether it means joining a local gym, exercising at home before or after work or taking a walk with your family after dinner, there are many ways to incorporate fitness into your life, no matter how busy

you are. Schedule a workout in your calendar the same as you would do for a meeting or doctor’s appointment. If you don’t book it, it’s easy to forget or dismiss. Your plan should also include a “plan B”. If the rain is keeping you from your morning jog, have an indoor activity such as a fitness DV or weights ready as backup.

Track your progress Remember to keep tabs on yourself to see how you are tracking against your goals. If your original fitness plan isn’t working, it’s time to try something else. It could be that you set your goals too high or too low or that you’re bored with the activity you chose. A simple revision to the routine can really do the trick and help you keep on track.

Eat balanced meals Incorporating fitness into your life is important, but if you’re not seeing results,

it could be because of your daily diet. Eating a nutritious, balanced diet will help you feel fuller longer, ensure you reach your recommended daily allowance of nutrients and minerals, and support your fitness goals.

Call today to book your complimentary hearing assessment and experience our award winning service first hand.

Find your motivation and don’t give up Whether it’s working out with a buddy, changing up your music playlist, incorporating some new routines or rewarding yourself occasionally, a little motivation can go a long way. Missing a workout or two isn’t the end of the world, and shouldn’t be mistaken for failure. Don’t give up on your fitness goals. Just get back to your plan as soon as you can, and if you find that you are skipping your workout more often than not, it may mean you need to revisit your fitness plan to make some adjustments to your workout routine.

Flaherty at board of trade: sticking with the plan DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com The plan, according to Canada’s Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty, “is to stick to our plan.” Flaherty made the blunt staythe-course promise at a luncheon with the Toronto Board of Trade in a downtown hotel yesterday in a speech sketching out both the state of the economy and the federal Conservative government’s plans for the country’s financial future for the remainder of the term of office. “We will not engage in large new spending schemes, we will not engage in spending that will increase deficits,” Flaherty told the crowd. “The pressure to spend more is always there; I get many cards

and letters at this time of year... many with interesting proposals for spending tax dollars. Many projects are good ideas but we have to keep our eye on the ball.”

‘Many projects are good ideas but we have to keep our eye on the ball.’ – Jim Flaherty In his speech, Flaherty referred several times to Canada’s strong economic position relative to other G7 countries. He said that indicated the Conservative government’s

economic policies so far have been effective. He pointed out that Canada has recovered “all of the economic output lost during the recession,” and also increased employment beyond the losses from the 2008-2009 downturn. He said that employment has increased since July 2009 by more than 820,000 jobs – 390,000 over its pre-recession high. “This is a volatile and uncertain global environment and the government is completely focussed on the economy, the creation of jobs and the creation of economic growth,” he said. As a result, he said that “Canada is positioned relatively better than many of our peers in the industrial world,” he said. >>>canadians, page 23

Create relationships not bullies

Canadians to be asked for their budget priorities >>>from page 22 “I don’t say that to boast, but to say that our policies have worked and our positioning is good and we’re on the right track. We’re in a relatively good position.” Flaherty said that Canada’s relatively sound fiscal situation has made it flexible enough to deal with external problems that might come its way – notably, the U.S. “fiscal cliff” of national debt that is so far stuck in a deadlock between Republicans and Democrats, and the European fiscal crisis. “The threats are clear, and the most imminent threat is the so-called fiscal cliff in the U.S.,” said Flaherty. “We’re not shy about making our position clear; the United States really needs to move forward with a medium-term plan to deal with deficits and the accumulated public debt. The consequences

‘The most imminent threat is the so-called fiscal cliff in the U.S.’ – Jim Flaherty are a four per cent drop in real gross domestic product over the year – and that would have a continuing consequence for Canada and hurt our GDP. So we encourage them to move along, as well as wishing everyone there a happy Thanksgiving.” If things do go poorly, however, Flaherty said the federal government should be agile enough to protect Canadians’ interests. “You want to be in the position of having room to move if bad times happen,” he said. “That’s why we did pay down that public debt. We did have to make a decision of running up the def-

Everyone experiences bullying at some point in their life, one way or another. Whether it’s through the eyes of the bully, the victim or the bystander, the emotional repercussions can have a negative impact on our lives and how we interact with each other. Dynamix is an organization, approved by the Ministry of Education, that runs interactive programs in schools as well as daycares, camps and other youth organizations to provide children, teens and adults with the tools to prevent bullying through strong relationship building. “At Dynamix, we really believe bullying is a relationship problem so we take a relationship based approach,” says Dynamix cofounder Mitch Zeltzer. “We present hands-on group challenges to see how people interact and come to a solution as a group.” Celebrating 10 years in Canada, Dynamix teaches respect, cooperation and team spirit. Mitch and his cofounder Corey Szwarcok believe empathetic and united kids will not stand by and allow bullying to carry on.

icit in 2009 and 2010 but as part of the Economic Action Plan we always built in a plan to get back to balanced budgets and we’re on track to do that. We’ve gone from a $50-billion deficit to less than half of that, and it should get us back to a balanced budget during the current parliamentary term and certainly before the next election.” Flaherty said the government won’t cut transfer payments to the provinces for health, education and equalization payments – and won’t cut payments to individuals. Rather, efficiencies will be sought through various direct programs offered by the federal government. Flaherty and the Conservatives are launching budget consultations across Canada next week, to find out from Canadians what priorities they might like to see.

“We create really fun, energetic activities that require complete team work where every member is valued,” says Mitch. “The kids learn interpersonal and character skills that are important tools to carry over to daily life.” The fun, interactive approaches are led by trained, energetic leaders. “It’s like accidental learning for kids,” says Mitch. “Everything we do is so fun and engaging that kids don’t always realize they are learning valuable life lessons.” Team work and cooperation is also important for After School programs, child care centres, sports teams

and home birthday parties and camps. “Our staff bring high-energy, themed activities and adventures that get kids laughing, moving and working together,” says Mitch. Working out of their Victoria Park office, Dynamix teams go to schools, centres and homes to work with school-age children, youth and adults. As a member of the Scarborough Rotary Club, the organization hopes to get involved in rotary sponsored activities to help build a stronger community.

City

Ombudsman critical of Toronto’s parking ticket procedures DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com If you want to fight a parking ticket at Toronto City Hall, you might be surprised to find it’s easier than you think. And that’s not a good thing, according to a report from Toronto’s Ombudsman Fiona Crean, looking into the way the city handles disputed parking tickets. Crean’s report came as a result of “a sizeable number of complaints”

from parking ticket recipients. They complained the dispute process doesn’t give recipients adequate information about ways to cancel a parking ticket or dispute it, unfairly requires recipients to attend in person to request a trial, and that service at parking tag offices is inadequate and trials untimely. “Complainants stated that the parking infraction dispute process seemed designed to encourage payment and discourage those with disputes from pursuing them,” she

wrote. The investigation took place over 11 months – and according to Crean, found some merit the complaints. While she wrote that the process provides reasonable services to recipients given resources and demand, she agreed the information provided to recipients seemed tailored to discourage anything but promptly paying a ticket. “The information that appears on the parking infraction notice downplays the trial option and gives no indication that tickets are

in some cases cancellable without attendance in court,” she wrote. The city does have guidelines that explain how tickets can be cancelled. But they’re not accessible to the general public, wrote Crean. She noted the city has made an effort to improve the dispute system. She recommended five measures to improve service: • Expand and clarify the information on challenging a ticket that’s on the infraction notice, the city website and parking tag offices;

• Expand the use of telephone, email and fax for dealing with ticket issues where an in-person appearance isn’t needed; • Require staff at parking tag offices to identify and help recipients whose ticket cancellation might not require a court appearance; • Look at initiatives that would reduce court appearances. • Ask the Attorney General to refer the issue of creating an administrative penalty to the Court of Appeal for a final ruling.

Planned Giving – You’re Leaving Your Money to Whom??? Did you know that 92 per cent of Canadians pay more money in taxes at the time of their death than they have to? Only 8 per cent of Canadians take the time to learn that by leaving a charitable bequest in their Will, you can leave more money for your loved ones and pay less tax. How? If your assets are not passing to a surviving spouse, on your final income tax return that is filed after you die, you will be taxed on income that is equivalent to all of your assets being added up including all RRSPs, RRIFs, real estate, insurance and marketable securities. Your final income could result in significant

capital gains and more tax being paid. By leaving a bequest(s) to your favourite charity(s), your taxable income is reduced and ensures that you pay less tax. What is planned giving? Planned giving is simply the process you work through with your professional advisor, such as a wealth manager, lawyer, accountant or insurance representative, to determine the charitable bequest that will minimize your taxes to leave more money for your loved ones. By leaving a bequest to Rouge Valley Health System Foundation, you can help thousands of patients who use and need Rouge Valley Centenary hospital.

Leave a legacy that makes a difference for your community hospital Leaving a charitable bequest in your will can benefit you and your family by reducing your taxes upon death. Your bequest to Rouge Valley can make a difference to thousands of patients. Call us today for free information on how to plan your will and ways to give.

Your bequest can help purchase vital equipment with new technology that is essential for the diagnosis, treatment and care of thousands of patients. A Win-Win for everyone: Help your loved ones receive more from your estate by making a charitable bequest to Rouge Valley Health System Foundation or your favourite charity(s). After all, you have spent a lifetime building your home, your family, and supporting your community. Continue to make a difference through careful estate planning. Make sure that you include all of the details in your Last Will and Testament. A legal Will is probably the most important

Rouge Valley Centenary Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering Mary Slavik, Director, Planned Giving 416-281-7462  mslavik@rougevalley.ca www.rougevalley.ca/rvhsf

document you will ever prepare in your life, yet only 50 per cent of Canadians prepare one! Dying without making a proper Will (or with one that is out of date) risks needless taxation, legal challenges, delays, and upsetting your family. To learn more about Planned Giving or to request “A Guide to Planning Your Will” or “Ways to Give”, contact Mary Slavik, Director of Planned Giving at Rouge Valley Health System Foundation at 416-281-7462 or by email at mslavik@ rougevalley.ca or visit our website at www.rougevalley.ca/rvhsf and click on the Legacy of Care Society emblem.


14 | Scarborough Mirror Holiday Gift Guide - November 2012

Leaving a Lasting Legacy While an estimated 50 per cent of Canadians pass on with no will in place, leaving their estate in the hands of the government to distribute, choosing to clearly outline your final wishes and bequests ensures the people and causes important to you are looked after. Planned giving focuses on gifts left through wills, on life insurance policies for which the charity is the beneficiary, on donations of securities of all sorts, and on cash donations. There are many different types of planned gifts, and many types of charities and organizations that accept them. For some donors, the option of leaving a speci-

fied cash donation is the most appealing, because it sets a finite, pre-determined sum to be paid out. Many people also choose to leave a bequest in their wills for a percentage of an estate’s value. It is also possible for donors to leave gifts in the form of paid-up life insurance accounts, charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, retirement investments (RRSP/RRIF), and gifts of securities. Many charities familiar with bequests and other planned donations employ planned giving officers who help donors understand, and select, the options right for them.

A history of service A legacy of caring More than 50 years ago a group of local residents, concerned about the future of healthcare in our community, joined forces to raise money to build Scarborough’s first hospital. Built on philanthropy with a history of service and a tradition of caring, The Scarborough Hospital has been providing high-quality healthcare to our richly diverse community in a warm and compassionate environment. Our ability to continue to fulfill our mission of providing excellent, patient-centred care to our community depends on the leadership and generosity of donors. Please consider including The Scarborough Hospital in your Will. Leaving a bequest to our hospital is a meaningful legacy for you that will make a great difference in meeting the future needs of our community and making The Scarborough Hospital a stronger hospital for a healthier community. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT : Verna Chen, Director of Stewardship and Legacy Giving Telephone: 416-431-8130 Ext. 6040 Email: vchen@tsh.to

Financial planners and estate lawyers should always be involved in the crucial wording of wills and bequests. A simple mistake in wording can lead to months of litigation between claimants. For example, leaving a gift to the “Cancer Society”, without specifying “Canadian Cancer Society” or “Canadian Breast Cancer Society”, can cause confusion as to who the legitimate recipient of the gift is. With over 80,000 registered charities across the country committed to making a positive change in the world, choosing only one to donate to can be quite overwhelming. To ensure your

monies are going to a reputable cause, it is important to be strategic and selective. Many organizations have their own websites and numerous sites provide a list of charities to choose from. Select an organization that is registered with Canada Revenue Agency and evaluate its financial performance. If you give to an organization that is not registered, you will not be able to claim your donation as a deduction on your income tax return. A will is a lasting guarantee that your wishes will be carried out. With planned giving, your legacy is yours to create.
