Duran opens Scarborough jazz fest MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com The music and experiences performers are bringing to the Scarborough Town Jazz Festival this weekend are diverse as the area itself. Quisha Wint has travelled the world and sung back up for Maestro, Jacksoul and another, stranger icon of Canadian music, William Shatner. “He doesn’t look his age at all,” said Wint, who opened the Junos by singing with the ex-starship captain this year. Pressed into singing at age six in the East Toronto Church of God, Wint hadn’t known what to do when the congregation called for an encore. At 18, she got her first gig at a hotel in Seoul, South Korea. From there, she continued to Jakarta, Indonesia, then Macao, the United States and the Caribbean.

SECOND ANNUAL FESTIVAL Wint is one of many taking the stage at the second annual festival at the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto, which has partnered with Scarborough Summerfest, three days of cultural programming the centre arranged. Both festivals start on the grounds of the building, Burrows Hall Park, on Friday. The opening gala starting in the P.C. Ho Theatre at 7 p.m. is the only event of the weekend requiring tickets, which are $15. Besides cultural dance and drumming, the gala features Hilario Duran, the Cuban jazz pianist who formed the group Los D’Siempre in 1970, and later joined Arturo Sandoval’s band and worked with Dizzy Gillespie’s United Nation Orchestra. From 1998, Duran, nominated for two Juno awards and a Grammy, has

includes displays of martial arts, ethnic foods and children’s activities runs from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. Performer and Scarborough resident Lester McLean hopes after the tragic Danzig Street shooting last month, the festival “give @SCMirror

Scarborough the lift that it needs” and build the image of a place where people are comfortable raising their children. The jazz festival, which played to disappointing crowds outside the centre last year, will evolve once the word gets out, predicted >>>SCARBOROUGH, page 18

It’s a taste of the other Danforth, Scarborough’s Danforth. And while another Danforth Avenue festival this weekend may draw larger crowds, merchants and residents along the street east of Victoria Park Avenue have found a way this Saturday to show what their neighbourhood does best. In an area with body shops, mechanics, used car lots and auto parts stores, Wheels on the Danforth is their answer. The classic car show with 15 judged categories is this year’s addition to the Fun in the Park family festival presented by the Crossroads of the Danforth Business Improvement Area. “We’re hoping to have well over 200 vehicles on the street,” said Liane Murillo, the festival co-ordinator. “There’s going to be such a variety of vehicles, it’s going to be amazing.” Certainly, anyone who wants to check out, say, a 1930 street rod Chevrolet sports coupe, a 1958 Dodge Crusader or a 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 is in luck Saturday.

Emergency services responds to Danzig critics Number of residents say wounded in mass shooting had long wait for medical treatment ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com

W

hen paramedics arrived to the Danzig Street mass shooting, they were met with dozens of people needing help. “There was a crush of people to the extent that they couldn’t immediately open the doors to the ambulance with all the people up against it,” deputy EMS chief Garrie Wright said. “When they stepped out of the ambulance, there were people saying ‘Help me, help me,’ trying to pull them in every direction. It was dark. It was difficult to see where the injured were or who the injured were. They still weren’t sure if there was an active shooting, someone with a gun still shooting in the area.” The first ambulance crew arrived within seven minutes of the shooting and began triage, identifying and categorizing the wounded. Wright was the most senior EMS official at the scene of the July 16 incident which took the life of 14-year-old Scarborough girl Shyanne Charles and 23-yearold Ajax resident Joshua Yasay. Another 23 people had suffered gunshot wounds as a result of the incident. “I have been working here for 32 years. I’ve never seen anything like this before,” he said. “We had

25 people shot in one location. It was unique for us.” Within minutes of the call, seven ambulances were dispatched to the scene. Another seven ambulances, including three from neighbouring York and Durham regions, were dispatched a short time later. An ambulance bus also attended. Paramedics transported 16 patients to hospital. Charles and Yasay, were pronounced dead at the scene. The other seven shooting victims made their own way to hospital. “In these sort of situations, we don’t want to overwhelm one hospital so we try to spread them out,” Wright said. “The initial group of serious patients went to Sunnybrook and then we sent one patient down to St. Michael’s.” The less seriously injured went to the three hospitals in Scarborough: Rouge Valley Centenary, The Scarborough Hospital’s Birchmount campus and The Scarborough Hospital’s General campus. “While all this was going on, we were still having a busy night looking after the community with our regular calls,” Wright said. “Was it tight in the rest of the city? Absolutely it was tight, but our crews went through and we dealt with the calls as they came in.” In the wake of the shooting, a number of Danzig residents said it took too long for paramedics to get to the wounded.

Toronto paramedics examine a woman’s gun shot wound to the thigh while treating victims of the shooting on Danzig Street on July 16 which killed a 14-year-old girl, a 23-year-old man and wounded 23 others. A number of Danzig residents said the response to treating the wounded at the incident by city emergency workers was slow.

Phil Farquharson had said two women were performing CPR on Charles for 20 minutes before paramedics took over. Melissa Warren-Paul had said it took paramedics 30 to 40 minutes to get to a 15-year-old girl who had a gunshot wound to the arm. The girl was waiting for treatment in Warren-Paul’s home. Cheryl, who didn’t want her last name published, had said she took a teen with multiple gunshot wounds into her home and called 911, but was put on hold for 20 minutes. She said paramedics arrived 50 minutes after her initial call. “I can imagine for those people that every minute felt like an hour, and I can see where it felt

like 20 minutes, 30 minutes,” Wright said. “In this particular scene, I don’t know yet how long it took to get around to each and every patient...The paramedics were going at it in a very systematic approach, so we would get the sickest people and they’d get attention first and the less ill would be taken later on.” Paramedics deal with mass casualty incidents by putting the focus on those who survive, Wright said. “We focus on the people who survived because of our actions. There is the loss of life, but as paramedics we resolve it by knowing that we did everything possible right away for those people and there was nothing more that could be done.”

An EMS staff psychologist has been in touch with the crews that arrived first at Danzig. “I’m not aware of any issues,” Wright said. “They’re true professionals. They’re back for their next shift.” There were 37 paramedics at the Danzig scene. Behind the scenes, at EMS headquarters, a dozen emergency medical dispatchers co-ordinated ambulance crew movements and kept in touch with hospitals. EMS officials continue to review and dissect the incident in an effort to learn from it, he said. “Our sympathies go out to the families who lost loved ones during that event. I know the paramedics were very moved on the scene by the loss of life.”

Show support for sports at the local level A

s the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games wind down this weekend, millions have tuned in to watch the top amateur athletes around the world compete in their respective sports. For many, it instilled a sense of national pride as the athletes strived for gold. We rooted for our hometown heroes, including Justyn Warner from Scarborough, Daniel Nestor from North York and Britany MacLean from Etobicoke, whom we featured in our newspapers. We cheered when they achieved success. We felt their disappointment our view when they fell short of their goals. The end of the Games should not Promote spell the end of our appreciation for our athletes and amateur sports. interest in Locally, more can be done to prosport among mote a stronger interest in sports, youngsters especially among youngsters. City council took a step in the wrong direction earlier this year when it considered raising permit fees by 21 per cent for use of city parks and arenas to bring in new revenue. Amateur sports leagues balked at the plan, forcing council to back off for this year. Philip Doi, coach of the Scarborough Stingers major mosquito baseball team, voiced his displeasure. “The increased costs will hurt all families. But it’s the kids from disadvantaged neighbourhoods and single-parent families from all corners of our community who will suffer most,” he said. The Etobicoke Girls Softball League learned it would cost its 125-player organization nearly $10,000 in playing field permit fees this year if the plan went through. The value young people can get from positive sports participation is immense, especially as the city deals with increased gun violence this summer. Residents can do their part by volunteering in summer and winter sports leagues. Often, the lack of volunteers has as much to do with the success of an organization as the funding of the league itself. For now, let’s continue to cheer our Canadian Olympic athletes in London, but let’s also remember that the success of those athletes begins with the support they received from their families and the larger community they grew up in. Closer to home, we can show that support by taking in the Ontario Summer Games from Aug. 16 to 19 in Toronto where more than 2,500 young athletes from across the province will be competing in 21 sports.

To the editor: Re: ‘Omar Khardr using the Canadian flag for his convenience,’ Letters, July 26. First, Canada is not a flag of choice for Omar Khadr. He was born here and holds citizenship by right of that birth. Second, it’s parents who are responsible for their children, not children who are responsible for their parents. When your parents take you somewhere, you go. It was his parent’s fault he was in Afghanistan. Third, the nation we share has signed onto several international agreements with respect to children and war. We as a nation have the duty and responsibility to live up to those agreements. Fourth, as a Canadian citizen, Khadr has the same rights to protection by our government as every other Canadian. Finally, there is no proof that would stand up in a Canadian court that Khadr is guilty of anything. His treatment by our government is a national disgrace. Gary Dale

Walking your way to your Summer Olympic dreams

I

’ve enjoyed the Summer Olympics immensely. The only frustration is the five-hour time difference between Toronto and London. The majority of my TV viewing is at night, so that means most of what I see is on tape. Already knowing the results takes some of the fun out of it. That’s where viewing ingenuity comes into play. There is a way to catch the Olympics when you’d rather be out soaking up the rays. Every convenience store seems to have a TV and the Games have been blaring away inside since the opening ceremonies. So I tailor my morning strolls around them. Every mile or so, I just pop in for an update. On the civic holiday, Monday, the timing worked out perfectly. Gymnastics is one of my favourite Olympic events and in the first store I entered, the men’s rings was just beginning. The lady behind the counter was riv-

eted to her set, smiling away as she looked on and then suddenly let out a groan. “What happened?” I asked. “Good form, great execution, but he didn’t stick the landing,” she sighed. Oh, well. It happens. I bid her adieu and 20 minutes later checked out another store that also had on the men’s rings. The guy working there was gazing excitedly at his TV and then shook his head. “Good form, great execution, but he didn’t stick the landing,” he lamented. Too bad. I continued my journey and in the subsequent store the women’s uneven bars was now centre

stage. The man operating the cash register was cheering away as I walked in and then he threw up his hands. “Good form, great execution, but she didn’t stick the landing,” he moaned. Hmm. Not sticking the landing appeared to be contagious. So I crossed the street to try and change my luck. Women’s uneven bars was on in the next store, too. As I came in, the cashier was just turning her back to the screen in dismay. “Great form, great execution, but she didn’t stick the landing,” she moaned. I decided to walk the last four miles non-stop, drop in to the convenience store around the corner from my place, catch the men’s vault and then call it a morning. As I was about to step inside, the store owner came out from behind the counter mumbling, “Good form, great execution, but he didn’t stick the landing.” I was feeling like a real

jinx at this point, so I told her I had to go. At that moment two kids racing each other on skateboards came heading straight at me. I nimbly sidestepped the first, twisted gracefully to avoid the next, cartwheeled over a poodle and did a somersault onto the top of a recycling bin. “Unbelievable form, fantastic execution and you really, really stuck the landing,” the store owner shouted, then hugged me and handed me a bouquet. A crowd that had gathered applauded wildly. The kids on the skateboards and the poodle serenaded me with O Canada. And Stephen Harper and Justin Bieber sent me Tweets as I waved and blew kisses to all. n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much.

Thunder rolls into semifinals The defending Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) champion Toronto Thunder, based out of Scarborough, are one win away from a return trip to the playoff championship game. They can accomplish that with a semifinal win tomorrow at 1 p.m. at Scarborough’s Birchmount Stadium against the visiting Myers Riders from the Ottawa area. The other league semifinal, also on Saturday, has the London Mustangs hosting the Hamilton Ironmen. The Thunder, 7-1 in the regular season, won its conference semifinal Saturday at Birchmount Stadium 28-16 against Ottawa Cumberland (7-2). The Myers Riders (6-3), meanwhile, earned their conference semifinal birth with a close 27-25 win over the host Metro Toronto Wildcats (6-2) at North York’s Esther Shiner Stadium. The OVFL, with teams throughout

southern Ontario, provides competition at three levels – varsity, junior and bantam. It has graduated numerous players on to the NFL, CFL and university.

n Titans still perfect

The Scarborough-based Toronto Titans of the Northern Football Conference (NFC) kept their perfect record going into the post season with a 41-6 win over the Sudbury Spartans in the opening round of the playoffs on Aug. 4. The Titans had finished off the regular season 8-0 in first place while the Spartans had the mirror image record – 0-8 in last place. The Titans will now host the NFC semifinal this Saturday, Aug. 11, 9 p.m. at Birchmount Stadium against the fourth-place Sarnia Imperials (4-4). The adult league provides a place for adults to continue their football career beyond junior football and university.

Municipal Class Environmental Assessment - Notice of Study Completion The City ofToronto has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to advance the recommendations of the City’s Wet Weather Flow Master Plan (approved by City Council in 2003) to capture and treat polluted stormwater and combined sewer overflows (CSO’s) that are discharged to the Don River and Central Waterfront. This will help to improve water quality and our environment. In addition, necessary upgrades have been identified to the City’s critical sanitary trunk sewer infrastructure within the study area to improve operations and service future growth. The study has defined the problems/opportunities, identified and evaluated alternatives, and determined a preferred solution and design in consultation with the City ofToronto, regulatory agencies, and the public.The City has accepted the consultant’s recommendations regarding the preferred solution and design, including the following project components: Sanitary Trunk Sewer System l A Lower Don/Coxwell BypassTunnel that will be used on a contingency basis as a bypass to the existing Coxwell SanitaryTrunk Sewer (STS) allowing for periodic maintenance and any necessary repairs of the Coxwell STS, l Four underground storage tanks for offline storage of peak sanitary flows where additional capacity is needed. l Upgrades to the NorthTorontoTreatment Plant (NTTP). Wet Weather Flow Collection and Storage System l Three integrated tunnels (Lower Don/Coxwell BypassTunnel,Taylor Massey CreekTunnel, and Inner HarbourTunnel) connected to an equivalent of 15 underground vertical storage shafts that will collect and store wet weather flows and convey these flows to a new wet weather flow treatment facility. l Three underground storage tanks for offline storage of wet weather flows from four remote outfall locations. Treatment of Collected Wet Weather Flow l A new wet weather treatment facility that will provide high-rate treatment of wet weather flows and will be located on future lakefill in the waterlot south of the existing Ashbridges BayTreatment Plant. l A new pumping station in Ashbridges Grove Park with forcemains connecting to the new wet weather flow treatment facility. l Retrofit of an existing CSO tank at the NorthTorontoTreatment Plant. Opportunities for Review The study was carried out following the requirements for Schedule ‘C’ projects under the Municipal Class EA. An Environmental Study Report (ESR) has been completed and placed on public record for a 45-day review period starting August 10, 2012 and ending September 24, 2012.The ESR will be available for review on the project website at www.toronto.ca/cleanwaterways and at the following locations: Beaches Library 2161 Queen St. E. 416 393 7703

Athletes preparing for start of Ontario Summer Games ERIC HEINO active@insidetoronto.com

Excitement is heating up for the thousands of volunteers, participants and sports fans eagerly awaiting the launch of the Ontario Summer Games (OSG) next week. The opening ceremony of the biannual Olympic-style competition is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16 at Varsity Stadium. Organizing committee chair Rahul Bhardwaj and his team began preparations for the Toronto event only a few months after the completion of the 2010 games in Sudbury. The challenge is to take all that planning and make it a reality, he said. “It is truly remarkable what we have built with these games,” he said. “The organizing committee has been working for 18 months and now thousands of volunteers are also operating to help the games. So many people are civically engaged and want to be the best host to their province. They are doing an enormous amount of work right now.” Preparations are ongoing with the bulk of the 2,500 athletes are arriving on the day of the opening ceremony. In addition to preparing 13 athlete villages and 20 sporting venues, organizers are busy ensuring proper food preparation, making transportation arrangements and managing the opening ceremony. The athletes have a lot to do as well, focusing their minds and making final preparations for what is, for some, the highest level of competition of their lives. Every athlete approaches the competition differently, but Lana Perry knows the feeling. A former archery competitor, coach and current administrator with the OSG, Perry understands even the most stoic archers can get high strung, but have to focus on pre-games training.

‘Even just wandering around in the dormitory, they are wearing different uniforms and they get to know each other. Being teenagers, they are very social anyway.’ Lana Perry, Ontario Summer Games administrator “Some younger athletes will actually taper their training off so they don’t hurt their muscles and some will amp it up to get more endurance. A lot of what we do becomes mental training. It really differs depending on athletes,” said Perry. Athletes also need to fine tune their equipment in preparation for the event. Even though everyone is coming from Ontario, the humidity and weather in Toronto can alter the functionality of equipment, Perry said. Restringing bows, tweaking rifle sights and double-checking bicycle tires can be the difference between standing on the podium and watching from the stands. There is a counterbalance to the stress of the OSG. Perry knows the teens involved aren’t here just to compete; they are also excited about the rich social experience of meeting like-minded athletes from across the province. “A lot of the time they come away having met some very great people,” said Perry. “Even just wandering around in the dormitory, they are wearing different uniforms and they get to know each other. Being teenagers, they are very social anyway.” Visit www.ontariosummergames. ca for a full schedule of events.

>>>from page 6 when you’re 98 in our years.” In a bit of panic, Kitsco went down to retrieve Lou. “He fell a long way, and he looked hurt. That’s part of the reason why I went down,“ Kitsco said. Kitsco got to Lou, but they became trapped on a ledge. “So I grabbed my cellphone and called 911,” said Kitsco. Firefighters placed Lou in a bag and hooked the bag and Kitsco onto hauling lines and pulled them up. The rescue took about an hour. “Toronto Fire did such a fantastic job of hauling us up off the bluffs,” Kitsco said. “These guys are the best.” Lou injured his hip in the fall and was taken to an animal clinic for treatment. “It’s like your kid. I’m just thrilled that he’s going to be OK,” Kitsco said. Kitsco and Lou have been living on Crescentwood, which backs onto the bluffs, for five years, and this was the first time the canine had gone over the edge. “It was an adventure,” Kitsco said of the rescue. “What an afternoon. No one expects that.”

John Kitsco and his dog Lou were rescued from the Scarborough Bluffs yesterday.

Capt. Scott Harrison of Toronto Fire Services said firefighters train for bluff rescues. “Occasionally we have to do it, and these ones are the good ones when everybody comes home safe.” Kitsco was not injured.

3 a.m. The man held a knife to the woman’s throat, threatened her and forced her into a nearby wooded area where he sexually assaulted her. The attacker is in his mid-20s, about six-feet tall, 200 pounds with a dark complexion. He wore a black hoodie and black pants.

Opinion

Toronto’s chief planner faces many challenges A

t long last, the City of Toronto found a chief planner. Even though the job pays about $200,000 per year, it is not surprising that the position took so long to fill. For months the city has been advertising, then inviting promising candidates for interviews. What some saw, turned them off. In one instance, a candidate left after watching council and reflecting on the very public termination of the TTC’s top manager. But there is more to the vacancy story than worries about the professional environment and job security. And in that story is why the ability of the chief planner matters to all of us. The position looks after three main functions. Perhaps simplest of all is the challenging responsibility for about 350 staff, plus the daunting task of ensuring planning applications are processed in a timely manner. Never an easy assignment, there must be additional stress because planning is often first in line when budgeters look for savings, yet last when the city

considers investment or recruitment. Next up the scale in difficulty is the chief planner’s responsibility for transforming our city. We want beautiful but functional buildings, attractive streetscapes that allow easy movement, and an urban form that changes with demographics, economics and vision. Meeting the future requires a host of skills, including resilience and self-confidence. Given the high stakes and powerful interests, a measure of financial security is very helpful. There is a third part of the job, which is the need to change the application approval process. Presently it is so dysfunctional yet so self-serving, that stakeholders pretend that resolution is beyond the city’s jurisdiction, perhaps so that reform never happens. Specifically, the problem is reliance on the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) to enforce the city’s own rules. In theory, planning rules should be understandable to anyone with access to the internet or library. Practically, even simple and compliant projects

Beyond the headlines

david soknacki can run afoul of any neighbour with a grudge or a councillor’s whim. On larger investments, fees such like those supposedly for community benefits vary so widely, that making budgets for them is next to impossible. And projects that are especially time sensitive can be hostage to near endless deferrals. Accountability Accountability is made more difficult through the combination of a councillor’s unquestioned domination of his or her fief, plus planning staff who may wish to be agreeable to a councillor with whom they will deal with for

years, and who reviews their budgets line by line. Having so much discretionary power centred in so few for too long is a cause for temptation and a source of weakness. These difficulties invite so many questionable practices, yet unfortunately suit so many. Blaming the OMB is easy. Councillors support city wide policies, yet oppose those same rules when applied to their constituents. Planning staff need not accept responsibility for their recommendations. Those unhappy with an application or applicant can make unsubstantiated claims and apply political pressure. The development industry has learned their first two choices are either to pay up, or to appeal to the OMB. It is no wonder the chief planner position was vacant for months. Unlike her predecessors, the new chief planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, comes from outside the organization and just might take on the toughest challenges. She may wish begin building independence by regularly circulating her staff. Bankers and audi-

tors learned this lesson long ago. Next comes the task of convincing council to allow larger projects to be decided centrally. Although populists disagree, they have been unable to prevent the abuse of their own rules. To be fair, planning staff proposed this measure during the administration of former mayor David Miller, but it was refused. And finally comes the hardest task of all, which is to get executive committee to approve council committees solely for planning applications. Although it sounds so basic, council and planning can only re-establish their credibility by ensuring the rules council itself sets will be the criteria by which applications are judged. The chief planner’s position in Toronto is a tough job, with opportunities and risks lurking everywhere. How it is filled impacts so much, from signature buildings and how we enjoy our city, all the way to home renovations. We wish her well. n David Soknacki is a former City of Toronto councillor and budget chief. Contact him at www.soknacki.com

n StArt Youth fest

StArt Youth Presenting Art Festival takes place this Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. at the Scarborough Village Community Centre. A number of events are slated as

part of the festival including singing and dancing performances, sculptures, photography, a drum circle, mural art, face/body painting, and button making. The festival looks at the connection between the arts and community. Admission is free. The Scarborough Village Community Centre and Scarborough Village Theatre are located at 3600 Kingston Rd. For more info, visit www.startypa.org.

Festival highlights Danforth Crossroads >>>from page 1 man into a talking replica of a cartoon vehicle in certain Disney films – should be a star attraction. The Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services hub on the edge of the area, AccessPoint on the Danforth, is bringing more local talent and entertainment, to the event, which runs from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. Both Danforth Avenue between Byng and Warden avenues and Danforth Road north to Landry Avenue will be closed from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. to accommodate Wheels on the Danforth and Fun in the Park. Members of Scarborough’s newest

BIA, which formed in 2008, hope the expanded event will promote the area as a place to work, play and live. Local car clubs – there are four in Scarborough alone – usually have to drive to other places to show off their vehicles and are excited to do so in their own backyard, said Joe Murillo, Liane’s husband and a BIA vice president. All activities are free, but auction sales and charity car wash will be raising money to benefit the children’s breakfast club at nearby Oakridge Community Centre. The BIA is getting help from more than 50 volunteers, including youth

co-ordinating events in the park. “Every year we’re getting stronger and stronger in terms of community spirit,” said Rene Glazier, who with her brother bought the former Mansion House tavern (now Frontier Sales, a used furniture store) across from the hardware store Glazier’s grandfather built and ran in the 1950s. The Crossroads has empty storefronts, and while Glazier acknowledges some landlords are hanging on to their vacant properties, she said that the BIA board is trying to recruit new businesses and sees positive prospects for the neighbourhood.

performs at jazz fest

>>>from page 1 McLean, a vocalist, guitarist and saxophonist. “As soon as I found out about this, I wanted to be in – no matter what.” A young McLean wanted to be an entertainer after seeing people perform on television, but one variety show in particular helped set him on the path, Hee Haw. “I can’t believe it myself, but it’s true,” he said, recalling how he enjoyed seeing Roy Clark singing and playing guitar. After graduating from Scarborough’s Sir John A. Macdonald Collegiate, McLean realized he wanted to keep playing. This weekend, he will play songs from a record released in 2011, LM4321. McLean said he would like to do some touring. “I’m not talking about fame, I’m just talking about doing what you love to do for a living.” Returning to the festival is Chelsea Stewart. At age 19, she is enrolled at Humber College’s jazz program and is equally at home singing reggae, jazz or gospel - and has made CDs demonstrating her command of each. That versatility is probably due to the music her mother played in their

house, including Cuban, Rhythm and Blues, Soul, Dolly Parton. “That’s why I kind of sing a bit of everything right now.” Stewart has not lacked confidence singing since she was a child. In elementary school, she and friends pretended to be the pop group Destiny’s Child and gave out “tickets.” But Stewart remembered when she sang for Stevie Wonder, a personal inspiration, at 14, she was shaking. In a land soaked with a popular culture “lacking real music,” a Scarborough jazz festival is a chance to educate people, especially the young on “where the pop music came from,” Wint said. “We’re going to do the real thing.” Wint has just released The Journey, a disc she said is a picture of her life over five difficult years, and a lesson showing people can rising above troubles if they fill themselves with positivitiy, she said. “I’m living proof of that” A full schedule and other details of the Jazz Festival are at www. latinmusicprod.com while more information on Summerfest is at www.cccgt.org
