DOMINIK KUREK dkurek@thetopic.ca Theodora Pistiolis just wants to give at-risk and homeless youths a bit of a confidence boost, and she's doing it the best way she knows how. The Muay Thai instructor and professional fighter each week hosts a group of young people at her Hook Up Muay Thai gym in North York, where she gets the youths to get their blood rate up, throw a few punches and kicks, and learn some moves to defend themselves. The hardest part of her job is to get the youths, many of whom are dealing with a number of issues, to stay engaged for a full 60 minutes. But when they do, her work is most rewarding. "I don't worry about how they're doing it, or how much their doing, I just want them to finish it. I don't want them to quit," Pistiolis said. "When they don't quit, they seem energized at the end of the class. It just that means that the rest of the day, I'm hoping, is positive, and hopefully I make a difference to one or two of the kids." â—? See UNIQUE, page 6

City urges Torontonians to clear sidewalks this winter to prevent slips, injury Public Works chairs call for more bylaw enforcement for snow clearing Rahul Gupta rgupta@insidetoronto.com As Toronto gears up for a potentially heavy winter, the city says it wants to get tougher on residents who fail to clear their walks following a major snowfall. Public Works chair Jaye Robinson unveiled plans for clearing snow from expressways, main roads, sidewalks and bike lanes during a recent press event at a city-owned facility along Eastern Avenue, where much of the winter operations planning takes place. With some 7,100 sidewalks in Toronto, Robinson said in the case of downtown areas in particular, where roads are narrower and plentiful with onstreet parking, it is essential that residents do their part to keep pathways clear for seniors and anyone with mobility issues. “We want to work with neighbourhoods and communities (to make sure sidewalks are cleared), and there’s a lot of seniors in Toronto, and people with accessibility issues,” she said. “We have to make sure we get those sidewalks cleared for those vulnerable road users.” An October report from the Toronto Board of Health found that between 2006 and 2015 there were almost 30,000 visits to city hospital emergency rooms, resulting in 2,800 hospitalizations - many of those seniors. While a $125 fine can be assessed on residents who fail to clear their property within 8 to 12 hours, there are few charges laid because no penalty is normally assessed for a first offence. “We want to give people an opportunity to be educated first about the importance of clearing the snow,” said Hector Moreno, manager of road operations for

the City. “So we will usually give them a warning the first time.” Even so, Robinson called for more enforcement and said a request has been made for more bylaw officers to ticket inconsiderate residents, and drivers who block streetcar tracks, or main roads during heavy snowstorms.

Last year, the budget for snow clearing had a $9-million surplus due to the relatively mild winter. This year, Robinson said the city has budgeted for $94-million, enough to cover 50 major weather events. Once a major snowstorm is declared, city and contracted

snow plowers will hit expressways before moving onto main roads. Local or residential roads don’t get addressed until at least 14 to 16 hours later, and while that may be frustrating, Robinson urged residents not to flood city help line 311, and to only make a request when a storm is over.

Staff report shuts down talk of Toronto Hydro sale DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com Rumors of Toronto Hydro’s possible sale appear to have been exaggerated, according to a report from city staff slated to appear at the Tuesday, Dec. 1 executive committee meeting. Toronto City Manager Peter Wallace has submitted a report recommending that the city not, as Mayor John Tory and others have explored, sell off all or part of the city-owned electricity distribution company. Instead, the report recommends that the city make an equity contribution of $250 million to the company, to restore Hydro’s capacity to pay dividends. This year, Toronto Hydro’s dividend payment to the city has been reduced to $25 million and not the anticipated $67.5 million, to help the company manage debt. The equity investment by the city would help reduce that debt and restore the dividend payment - a crucial element of city revenue. The city could achieve the same thing by selling off a portion of Hydro. But according to outside analysis by Deloitte, the city gets more bang for its buck by simply making the $250 million investment. The investment would bring in a net of $30 million additional revenue a year, whereas the sale of 10 per cent of Hydro “entail significant transaction costs and governance changes, with a potential marginally increased value to the City.”

HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Celebrating the holidays in a ‘uniquely Canadian way’

In Toronto, people make room for their neighbour’s cultural celebrations

DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com There’s something different about the window display at the Hudson’s Bay Company flagship store at Yonge and Queen Streets this holiday season. Gone are the animated Christmas carollers, the elves and the reindeer trappings of Christmas. In their place? The Aurora Borealis; owls and geese and squirrels and bears, animal denizens of a wintery “enchanted forest” that speaks more to the Canadian winter than the Christian holiday that’s among those celebrated in December. A year ago and a border south of the Bay, a decision to step back from Christmas in favour of wintery magic might have gotten a lot of flak from Christians and other traditionalists who see a war against the holiday in the colour of Starbucks coffee cups and the use of the greeting “happy holidays”

rather than Merry Christmas. This year? With Stephen Bannon, the head of the right-wing, hate-spinning website Breitbart. com at the right hand of president-elect Donald Trump, whatever bloom there was on the rose of Christian-centric, exclusive celebration this season has surely faded. That goes doubly so in Toronto - one of the most multicultural and multi-religious cities in the world - where the deChristmasing of the Bay raised barely an eyebrow. “This isn’t a bad year for us to be talking about the uniquely Canadian way of celebrating Christmas,” says Toronto city councillor Joe Mihevc, who came to politics by way of divinity studies. Mihevc represents a typically diverse ward (Ward 21 - St. Paul’s) in a diverse city, and he holds his communities up as a model of accommodation. While the law of the land turns Christmas - that being the explicit celebration of the birth of Christ - into a paid, nearly universal holiday, Mihevc says that the many faiths practiced in the communities he represents find ways to celebrate. “At the Wychwood Barns, there’s a Christmas thing, a Hanukkah thing, a Kwanzaa thing,” he says.

David Nickle/Metroland

The Hudson’s Bay Company’s window displays at Yonge and Queen streets are featuring a winter theme this year – a break in tradition from their usual Christmas theme. “It’s let’s celebrate and have fun with it. It’s not a way of defining your religious team as differentiated from other religious teams.” In Scarborough, United Church Minister Gretta Vosper takes that ethos a step further. Vosper, an avowed atheist, is battling a move by the church to defrock her for her religious views. The matter is currently decided against her, subject to an appeal. The West Hill United Church where she officiates until that is heard offers a “longest night” service that coincides with the equinox - the shortest day of the year, Dec. 21. The congregation there focuses on the communal elements of the season -

extinguishing candles to represent regrets, and lighting candles to illuminate hope. “It’s a service that doesn’t use scriptural text, but touches the primal elements of all traditions,” she says. “What we do is, the lowest common denominator of what people of good will can agree on. That’s what we build on.” Vosper’s God-absent view may be an outlier in a season that gathers many around spiritual symbols, but even the devout can see the value in inclusivity. Rev. Rachel Kessler left her parish in midtown Toronto last year to become chaplain at Kenyon College in Ohio. The Episcopal college’s stu-

dent body is diverse, with students practicing Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and pagan religions, as well as many who don’t worship at all. “The way we have been striving to approach spiritual life here is, how do we affirm the religious identity of the people in our community and support them fully, in our own identity and making space for one another’s identity?” she asks. Making that space, Kessler acknowledges, is work. “Forming a true interfaith relationship should cost me something,” she says. “If that cost is I say ‘happy holidays’ to Muslim or Jewish students,

we’re

or a pagan student who doesn’t want to celebrate Christmas - well, that’s a pretty low cost for me.” Kessler would, in fact, be willing to pay more. “I want to scrap Christmas as a paid holiday entirely,” she said. “I think we should all celebrate as a secular society as a winter holiday. But in my religious community, I would like to celebrate my festival. The whole festival of the light of God, coming into the world.” As for the Bay? When asked for comment on the new wintry display, Bay spokesperson Michelle Veilleux was unable to find anyone to comment. Here in Toronto, the display speaks for itself.

S

o much has been debated about how we wish someone well during the holiday season. ‘Put Christ back in Christmas!’ are common cries from those who celebrate. Indeed, they should put Christ back in Christmas. That’s the reason of the season for them. For those who believe, Christ was born in a manager with livestock all around him. He had no clothes. He came from no wealth. But he led his life with love at the core. Torontonians must recognize (and most probably do) that there is room for everyone to celebrate in the way they choose, this month and throughout the year. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Diwali and other faith-based celebrations, the common thread is love and hope. Honouring what’s come before, and making a conscious effort to do better moving forward. It’s about people. It’s about kindness. It’s about generosity. It’s about acceptance. It’s about loving your neighbour. It’s about spending time with people who matter to you. It’s about giving to a stranger with no expectation of anything in return. Sharing a smile and wishing someone ‘Happy Holidays’ doesn’t detract from what the season of giving is all about. If anything, we as a people should be offended with the commercialism and high-cost of celebrating at this time of year. Buying the best of the best in gifts, but not giving the best of the best of ourselves, is the greater sacrifice to humanity. What matters is how you treat people, not the price tag attached to the shiny new present. It’s irrelevant in the long run. It’s a general understanding people remember how you made them feel, not what you did or bought for them. It’s unlikely if Jesus Christ walked this earth today he would take exception to wishing someone ‘Season’s Greetings’ or “Happy Holiday’s or a simple ‘the very best to you’. Love was Christ’s ministry and we as people of all faiths, cultures and creeds should endeavor to live our lives with love and give of ourselves to make this world we live in a better place.

Toronto public housing tenants still waiting to be safe Pelham Park Gardens isn’t alone in its problems. But if its tenants feel alone, especially at night, who could blame them? Bad people come to the building at night, and no one is there to stop it. The west-end Toronto Community Housing Corporation complex was built for seniors, and once had nurses on staff. Now a lot of tenants are people with disabilities or mental illnesses. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, they prey on them,” says Cesar Palacio, the local councillor. “That enrages me.” Mayor John Tory set up a task force to “transform” the city housing authority. Many of its 2,200 buildings are crumbling, and the city falls farther behind on

MIkE ADLER Edges of Toronto repairs. The final task force report in January called for more services to protect vulnerable tenants, supplied perhaps by outside agencies, and for “quick and consistent procedures to deal with illegal and antisocial activity.” But all tenants seem to be getting are better security cameras because, as TCHC CEO Greg Spearn explained in Pelham Park last week, he never has

more than 16 to 18 security officers to respond to buildings across Toronto. Need overnight security? We can’t afford it, and furthermore Spearn says the authority doesn’t have legal means to “screen out the bad guys” on TCHC’s waiting list, though he’d love to. “I agree with the task force but without resources I can’t do anything about it,” he says, “and we’ve been asked to cut 2.6 per cent.” In April 2015, tenants at Scarborough Civic Centre told the task force how they needed TCHC to change. Several said security was their number one issue. They wanted overnight guards, not just cameras. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, people living there illegally. These people

should be out, because we have decent people waiting to take your spot,” said a woman from Gordonridge Place, Rita Nicolson. The nightly sense of lawlessness at Gordonridge and Pelham Park needs to end. People in each TCHC building want to help, but don’t want to risk their lives confronting trespassers and dangerous tenants when staff aren’t there. The mayor must remember that he promised to listen, he promised to help. Edges of Toronto is a column about how people see life in Toronto differently, depending on where they live.

Each week’s class sees as many as 10 students who come from the Horizons for Youth homeless shelter, just a 10 minute drive away in Toronto’s York community. The shelter serves males and females between the ages of 16 and 24. Pistiolis has been doing this for close to four years. The shelter receives donations to offset the cost of the program and the rest is donated by Pistiolis. Horizons for Youth program co-ordinator Jonathan John said this and the shelter’s yoga programs are its most popular. “We offer nothing else like this,” John said. “We do have a small gym at the shelter, but it’s not to the level of this. And the kids are having something that’s very structured from a professional.” The shelter serves up to 45 people and is at 100 per cent capacity much of the time. It offers much more than just a bed and meal. It provides youths with things like job development support, and personal and housing support once they leave. Its programs also focus on rehabilitative skills, which the Muay Thai plays a key part in. “This isn’t just healthy living. When they come back from the program after we’ve done a workout, they’re bonding together, they are developing social skills and determination,” John said. For 23-year-old Fatimah Mookshh, who

HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Torontonians generous with giving over holiday season

Loyal donors help keep not-for-profits in the green

Giving back during the holiday season doesn’t have to involve opening your wallet.

FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com

~ Donate some of your time to a local charity like Habitat for Humanity. Get your family or co-workers involved building a home for a family in need. ~ Attach a handwritten note to a homemade treat and leave it in your mailbox for the mail delivery person. Or, if you can, hand deliver it. ~ Spend time talking with your elderly neighbour, or help them decorate their tree or shovel their driveway. If you know they are spending the holidays alone, and you have room at your dinner table, invite them over for a meal. ~ Offer to babysit for new parents, and if you have kids, bring them along to help with whatever else mom or dad needs, perhaps decorating or wrapping presents. ~ Clean out your closet and bookshelves and donate everything to a homeless shelter. ~ Be the one to reach out and make amends with someone you’ve had a falling out with.

Volunteers help build a family a home on Pinery Trail Tuesday, Nov. 22 as part of Habitat for Humanity’s GTA Crew Build. base. According to a 2014 survey conducted on behalf of national charitable organization Imagine Canada, which examined holiday season charitable giving and attitudes about charitable donations, 62 per cent of Canadians intended to donate to charity over the holidays. Other findings included 33 per cent intended to volunteer their time, rather than money, to a charitable cause; 33 per cent wanted to set an example for their children or others about the importance of giving back; 26 per

cent planned to make a donation in someone’s honour in place of a traditional gift; 42 percent said were donating to experience the joy of giving and celebrate the spirit of the holidays; and 61 per cent of those not making a charitable donation cited lack of funds as the reason. Sam Fiorella, a professor at Seneca College’s school of marketing and managing director of notfor-profit corporation Lucas Fiorella Friendship Bench, said holiday fundraising is a constant challenge for charities, with

people choosing to spend their money on gifts. Yet on the flip side, those same people also feel more inspired to give in the name of someone else. “This time of year people are in a more charitable mood, and charities have to look to capitalize on that,” he said. “Our approach is not to wait until December to do something or launch a campaign. We build engagement throughout the year.” Families tend to make traditions of giving back, and one popular way is for kids to donate to a toy

drive, he said. “Because more people have more today than 10 years ago, they are willing to give, but not cash,” Fiorella said. “They want to make it educational for their kids. Re-gifting a toy for a toy drive definitely hurts ability to raise cash.” But not all charities feel the pinch of a zipped up wallet come Christmas. Andrew Burditt, spokesperson for The Salvation Army Ontario Central East Division, said its Christmas Kettle Campaign, which has been in existence in Canada for more than a

century, is still an effective way to raise funds over the holidays. “We set a $3-million goal in Toronto, and we’ve been fortunate to meet it the last few years,” he said. “The money stays in the community. So if you donate to a kettle at Yonge and Eglinton, the money stays in that community.” Burditt is aware not everyone can give cash donations, so he suggests donating time - like manning a kettle. “We find people do give with an open heart.”

insidetoronto.com

With the holidays fast approaching, malls are becoming more crowded, store front windows are decorated with Christmas trees and all the trimmings, and charities have filled mailboxes and airwaves with calls for donations. And with a plethora of charities and not-for-profits vying for money from generous donors, some have had to change their approach and get more Internet savvy in hopes of collecting coin. When it’s time for North York Seniors Centre (NYSC) to target donors for its fundraisers, Jasmine Colibaba knows exactly where to find them - online. “We are focusing on the millennials,” said the centre’s development coordinator. “As a millennial myself, it’s so much easier to just give online. It’s the way the future is going. It’s the new focus. We have to think about how we can appeal to a larger audience. Twitter, LinkedIn, it’s all very important in getting our message out to a broader audience.” And luckily for NYSC, a not-for-profit organization providing programs and services for adults aged 55 and older, they don’t have to tug too hard on heart strings to get people to dig into their pockets. “Everyone has a grandma, grandpa,” Colibaba said. “They are vibrant, living in the community. But they are going to need help.” She noted one third of all annual donations to NYSC are collected in December, adding the organization has a loyal donor

HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Trimming Toronto’s holiday tree is an epic undertaking Massive tree from Bancroft now decked out in lights DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com One of the most special traditions of the holiday season for many is to go find a tree, haul it home and decorate it with lights, tinsel and baubles in a place of honour by the hearth. For 50 years, the tree-trimming has also been a tradition with the City of Toronto. Beginning in 1967 as a way to showcase the then-new Toronto City Hall, Toronto workers have set aside weeks in November to erect a very special tree in Nathan Phillips Square. That is special, as in huge. According to Kristine Germann of Toronto’s Economic Development Department, the tree has always between 60 and 65 feet tall, brought down from Bancroft, north of Peterborough, by the Weller Tree Service, which has been providing the service since the beginning. “They always pick a tree that’s at the end of its life cycle,” said Germann. “This year the tree is approximately 60 feet. And yes, it’s pretty epic-it comes down in a big truck.” It takes a crew of eight city workers to put the tree in place, secured with guy wires and fenced off. “Once the tree’s in place, we let it settle,” said Germann. “When we get a tree at our own house, they always advise to let it settle for a couple of days, and with a bigger tree it’s a larger consideration. We need it to look good for really a month. And then it requires a cherry picker and three pieces of large machinery to decorate the tree.” The tree-trimming takes between one and two weeks, which might seem leisurely. A 60 foot white spruce tree, however, takes a lot of decorations. There are 700 ornaments in total, and 12,500 feet of lights, which for several years now have been brighter, energy-efficient LEDs. “My favourite decoration is the beautiful star that goes on top of the tree,” says Germann. “It’s made of metal. I always like to see that. I guess I know when it goes up, our job is done.” Well, not entirely done. The tree must eventually come down: two weeks after New Year’s Day, at which point, the tree is mulched “and returned to the land.”

(Top, clockwise) After the fireworks display on Saturday, crowds gather to take photos with the city’s holiday tree at Nathan Phillips Square. The celebration included live entertainment and Mayor John Tory flipping the switch on lighting the tree. Getting the 60-foot tree ready involved bringing it in from Bancroft, lifting and securing it in place, as well as pruning and decorating.
