arm, affectionate and sweet are the words Philip White’s wife, Trudy Appleby, uses to describe her late husband, a former mayor of the city of York. “He was the sweetest person I ever met,” said Appleby. White died Saturday from a brain hemorrhage at the age of 90. A funeral service was held Monday at Beth Tzedec Synagogue. He lived in the former borough of York and attended Harbord Collegiate, according to Appleby. White served as York’s mayor from 1970 until 1978; he became the longest-serving mayor for the borough of York and helped citizens become more involved in the political process by encouraging “participatory democracy.” Appleby and White met when she was 18 years old and he was 24. They went out on only one date, Appleby recalled, because she didn’t like the place he took her to. Both married different people, but 29 years later White had divorced and Appleby’s husband had died. At the time, she wasn’t sure she was ready to date – her father had died a year earlier, her husband just nine months prior and her mother was in the hospital suffering from brittle bones disease. But her reverend coaxed her into considering a date and she’s grateful he did. “He said, ‘I got the gentleman, his name is Philip White.’ And I said, isn’t >>>ARENA, page 9

Energy efficiency key to saving money for senior >>>from page 1 Monday. He’s been living there for 59 years. It’s only been a month since the upgrades, but Brunner, an 85-year-old retired mechanic living near Alliance Avenue and Jane Street, has already saved $22 on his energy bill. “That’s a lot to me, and stretch it out over year… that’s a lot of money for someone who’s not making a lot,” Brunner said. The upgrades are a part of Enbridge’s free home weatherization program offered to low-income residents in Ontario. The program is designed to increase a home’s energy efficiency and help reduce the occupant’s energy bill. It’s also part of the saveONenergy Home Assistance program, which is also free of charge and for residents with low incomes, and is done through GreenSaver, a notfor-profit energy efficiency organization. This is the third time

It’s quite a lot of work to do. But it’s so worth it. – Chris Nykto

Brunner has applied for the program after seeing a newspaper advertisement about two years ago. “The first year they turned me down. The second year I was making too much money, I was making $31,000,” said Brunner, who lives alone. “Then I phoned them back this year and they said, ‘We’re coming to insulate your house.’ And I said OK, the doors are open.” Ac c o rd i n g t o V l a d a n Veljovic, the president and CEO of GreenSaver, they’ve already helped more than 1,500 Toronto families upgrade their homes to be energy efficient. The upgrades take a total of three days. “A day per floor,” said Chris Nytko, a site

supervisor with GreenSaver who worked on Brunner’s home. “It’s quite a lot of work to do,” said Nytko. “But it’s so worth it.” Brunner received energy efficient lighting throughout his home, an ENERGY STAR refrigerator, foam insulation, blown cellulose attic insulation and air-sealing, and draft proofing measures because his home originally had no insulation. Those upgrades are projected to save Brunner almost 19.5 per cent on his electricity bill and about 28 per cent on his natural gas bill and he couldn’t be happier. In fact, he has already told the news some neighbours as well as a few members of the community at the Syme senior centre where he often visits. “I’m just spreading the word because it’s a good program for the older folks like me,” said Brunner.

York singer to share stage with jazz hero Yvette Tollar to perform at T.O. jazz festival

Second in a series looking at local participants in upcoming festival

HILARY CATON hcaton@insidetoronto.com

T

he first time jazz vocalist Yvette Tollar heard Canadian pop singer Mary Margaret O’Hara sing live, she cried. Tears streamed down her face as she listened to O’Hara’s rendition of In a Sentimental Mood, written by jazz legend Duke Ellington. “I just sat there and cried,” said Tollar. “She’s one of my favourite singers in the world.” The performance was for the Canwest Cabaret Show in the Distillery District in 2008. After the performance, tears still flowing, she travelled to a different venue to see a show featuring her brother, Ernie, who plays the saxophone and flute. It was a powerful moment for her. That wouldn’t be the last time she got the chance to witness O’Hara’s talents. Luckily, Tollar, who lives near Oakwood Avenue and Rogers Road, another opportunity arose later that year, when she saw O’Hara perform an improvised show. No tears this time, just

pure admiration. “She had no charts, nothing, just her, a drummer and a piano player,” Tollar said. “I think that she has some influences from the (older) movies, so when

she sings a jazz tune, she has authentic sound. It’s like she’s absorbed all those black and white movies.” Since then, Tollar had the opportunity to share the stage with O’Hara at Lula Lounge in December 2010

and will do so again at the Toronto TD Jazz Festival as one of the 350 jazz acts that will be performing in the city June 20 to 29. Tollar’s performance with O’Hara at this year’s festival sold out in one day. According to Tollar, that’s a regular occurrence when word gets out O’Hara is performing in town. “She rarely performs, so being on stage with her is a big deal for me,” Tollar said. “She’s a real inspiration.” They will be performing at Musideum at 401 Richmond St. W. at 7:30 and 9 p.m. Tollar will also be performing twice on the final day of the festival on June 29 at 7 and 9:30 p.m. at Musideum. “It’s a really special venue because it’s an instrument shop during the day with instruments from all over the world all over the walls,” said Tollar, who admitted this setting is more about the atmosphere and sound and less about the booze – there’s no there’s bar. “It’s a really intimate setting.” She’s currently working on two new albums simultaneously. One has a more traditional “standard jazz” sound, as she calls it, and another with original material. Tollar expects the

release date to be sometime in 2014. She often incorporates different world music sounds into her music, and being able to sing in nine languages – including Arabic and Portuguese – helps. “All of those sounds creep into my writing and the instrumentation that I use,” explained Tollar. Tollar first played at the Toronto jazz festival in 1987 when she was 17. She said since then, the festival has really turned around to be more about getting the whole city to embrace jazz and not just the jazz aficionados. “There’s so much world music and so many different cultures, it should be embracing all the people that live here and now I feel like it’s starting to,” she said. “There’s so much crossgenre music these days that you can bring in new audiences. I’m excited about his broader scope and it’s gotten better and better every year.” Tickets are already sold out for Tollar’s performance with O’Hara, but Tollar will be hosting a jazz vocal workshop at Musideum with pianist Dave Restivo on Sunday, June 23 2 p.m. For more festival listings visit, www.torontojazz.com

T

ransit funding should be more than just buses, subways and GO trains. Transportation is a more accurate way to look at getting around the Greater Toronto Area. The future of the Gardiner Expressway is being debated – again. With the Environment Assessment (EA) by Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto now back on the table, the latest in the circular discussions is coming up Thursday, the day after the two parties hold a media briefing to discuss the EA. The future of the Gardiner comes up every few years, but nothing concrete has ever come of these discussions. The long-term rehabilitation of the Gardiner is not in question – that needs to happen. However, what exactly does that mean, and how is a city like Toronto to handle it? our view going The entire length of the decaying expressway will eventuExpressway’s ally come up for debate, but forum focuses on the future up for Thursday’s eastern portion from Jarvis Street debate again to the Don Valley Parkway (DVP). We believe front-and-centre at this discussion should be funding. Not just the $505 million approved by council to rehabilitate the Gardiner, but how will we maintain whatever we decide to do with it – keep it standing, bury it under Lake Shore Boulevard or dismantle it all together? Whatever the decision, funding is rarely mentioned. Like the public transit discussion, everyone is concerned about today, not 10, 25, 50 years from now. Despite the obvious connection between public transit and the highways, expressways and parkways that encircle this city, no one is discussing how they should work together. If there is an effort out there to come up with a cohesive transportation plan, we’re not seeing it. Within the transit funding tools supported by Metrolinx to pay for the province’s Big Move plan, there should also be funding for our roads and highways. Regional Sales Tax, Development Charge, Parking Space Levy, and Fuel Tax are on the table to fund transit. Yet, something like Highway Tolls to help maintain the Gardiner is not being discussed. Or, at the end of the day, maybe we should hand over the Gardiner to the province to include in its transportation portfolio together with the 400 series highways. And while we’re at it, toss in the DVP.

Bracing for a frustrating tennis season

W

ell, I played my first tennis match of the season over the weekend and I’m not off to the best start. I’m officially zero for one. But it wasn’t the defeat that was so troubling, but how it was done and the guy who beat me, my buddy Shawn. What really sticks in my craw is that he was wearing a monstrous new knee brace roughly the size of Jabba the Hutt’s belly. Without that brace, I wipe the court with him. With it, I back off and he throttles me for fun, 6-0, 6-0. Well, I was prepared to take my lumps like a man, when, get this, Shawn hops over the net for the traditional post-match handshake. Oops, did I say hop? Forgive me. To call it merely a hop is not doing justice to that athletic tour de force. It was a breathtaking triple salchow during which he soared higher than Patrick

jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY Chan. And the icing on the cake? He stuck the landing. I mean really stuck the landing. I was livid. “How the heck did you do that?” “It wasn’t that difficult,” Shawn replied matter-offactly. “I just took a long approach run. Then got into the tuck position to harness my legendary power and sprung up ever so gracefully on my little tippy toes.” “You know what I meant, funny guy. How’d you do manage to pull off a move like that, wonky knee and all?” “What makes you think I have a bad knee,” he asked. “Exhibit A, your honour, “ I answered, pointing to said imposing brace. “I hate to break it to you, but the knee’s fine. I only wear this contraption to psych out pigeons like you.

And as you can see it works like a charm.” “But how can you wear that thing and sleep nights?” I wailed. “I told you, I put it on for matches only. I take it off long before I go to bed.” “And that masquerade doesn’t eat away at your conscience?” “Hey, I win, baby. That’s all that matters. Isn’t that what Nike says is the most important thing in life? Next to buying all their over-priced stuff, of course.” “You didn’t win. I handed the match to you. I was afraid to make you even flinch dare you re-injure what I thought was a fragile leg.” Shawn just shrugged. “Look, I’d love to listen to you whine, really I would, but I have to scoot home and ice my knee.” “But didn’t you just get through telling me there was nothing wrong with it?” “There wasn’t, but in my haste to kick your butt from

here to Mississauga I must have put the brace on too tight by mistake because it’s starting to throb. I want to take care of it before I develop a real problem. You don’t mess with knees you know,” he needled. “So, you coming over for a brewski?” “After that stunt you just pulled? Forget it.” “Come on, Jamie. Don’t be such a spoilsport. I tell you what. I’m going up to the cottage for awhile. And to prove I’m not such a bad guy, I’ll let you borrow the brace until I come back so you can let it work it’s magic for you. Are you game?” “Well, I am playing Dale next week and I have yet to beat him all these years. Do you think it might help?” “Let’s just say, it wouldn’t hurt. Unless you put it on too tight by mistake.” Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. His column appears every Thursday.

Additional revenue sources possible, says MP To the editor: Re: ‘We’re all part of the same transit challenge’, editorial, May 30. Your editorial correctly notes our city faces major challenges over the next 20 years to find the $34 billion necessary to build the next wave of transit projects. You invite residents to pick from 11 revenue tools (a.k.a. new taxes) to help pay for these projects, but neglect to count three other revenue sources. The first is provincial funding. The province has already committed $14 billion toward Toronto’s first wave of transit projects. It is reasonable to assume it will contribute to the next wave projects as well. There is no reason why the burden should fall only on Toronto residents. The second is federal

funding. The Metrolinx report does mention the previous role of the federal government in contrib-

uting one-third toward infrastructure funding, which includes transit. A one-third contribution from the federal government would go a long way to reducing the burden on Toronto residents. The third is corporate taxes. Corporations are a major beneficiary of transit investment. Their employees get to work faster (and in a healthier environment) and the delivery of their goods and services would benefit from reduced traffic congestion. By using these three sources of revenue, the contribution expected from Toronto residents would become far more manageable and avoid burdening lower- and middle-income families. Mike Sullivan M.P. York South-Weston

Would pay more money Funding for eye exams for a better commute To the editor: Re: ‘Big Move...Big Money,’ Special Report, May 30. Time for the front page to scream Big Gridlock...Big Money. The projected costs of an integrated regional transit system proposed by Metrolinx is far less than the estimated $1,600 per household cost for the gridlock that has the GTA stuck in traffic. It’s unfair to characterize Metrolinx as squeezing money out of taxpayers as Thursday’s front page and inside political cartoon did.

stopped

To the editor: Re: ‘Worried about vision loss? Get regular eye exams,’ Letters, insidetoronto.com Dr. Keith Gordon gives good advice but perhaps he is not aware that in former premier Dalton McGuinty’s first year funding for regular eye exams for people between the ages of 18 and 65 was stopped. This move surprised many of us who always believed the Liberals were about maintaining vital social programs. Many people can’t afford to have their eyes checked every two years so many eye diseases will not be diagnosed until it’s too late for any meaningful treatment. We should address this health concern with our representatives and certainly during the next election if this funding is not reinstated. Helena Nielsen

Funding transit contributes to better access, cleaner air and smoother commutes for everyone. I’ll pay for that. Alice Schuda

Inertia on transit funding To the editor: Lack of transit funding has been a problem for our city for many years and as long as our politicians sit on their hands, it will continue. Funding will be an election issue during the next munici-

pal and provincial elections, and most likely the ones to follow. The time to do something has past now. It is make up time and the expense will only climb. Glenn Kitchen

the city And she said he needed to take time away from city hall to deal with whatever issues he might have because until he does, his presence is turning the city into a train wreck. Those are hard things to say. They are not the sorts of things a member of a strong mayor’s team says. Weighing in on that mayor’s leadership is not the same thing as weighing in on the mayor’s decision to support a casino. It’s personal. If it’s going to be “business as usual,” as the mayor continually claims, then the mayor’s got to clean house. No choice. So yes, Ford’s decision was understandable from the point of view of raw power politics. The funny thing about power politics is that at a point what’s good for the leader is not good for the team. Robinson said hard

things. She also said true things. The fact is the mayor has failed to address the serious issues still emerging surrounding the crack allegations. The mayor’s brother is overstepping his role as a North Etobicoke city councillor. It is very likely Ford could benefit from some time away from city hall, because it is not “business as usual.” Removing Robinson from the committee has another impact on governance. For the first time, the most powerful committee at city hall has not a single woman. That is a giant step backwards, whether her removal was an intentionally gendered decision, or the lack of women candidates to replace her is an unavoidably gendered failure. And that is all too comprehensible.

F

iring city councillor Jaye Robinson from his Executive Committee may have been the most comprehensible thing that Rob Ford has done in the past few weeks as mayor. That is not to say that firing Robinson was a nice, good or city-building thing to do. But from the point of view of a mayor trying to hold onto power in an environment where its levers are increasingly eluding him... it makes sense. Punishing the first member of his Executive Committee to actively criticize his bungled handling of the crack video controversy sends a message. It establishes a certain kind of strength. Robinson was outspoken, as the mayor continued to refuse to answer the many questions arising from the video allegedly showing him smoking crack cocaine. She said he needed to answer those questions. She said he shouldn’t be allowing his brother to speak for him.

community meeting on Gardiner Thursday wPublic Residents will get a chance to sound off on the future of the Gardiner Expressway during a public meeting this week. Organized by the city and Waterfront Toronto, the event will mark the first opportunity for public feedback since the resumption of an environmental assessment (EA) examining potential long term options for the eastern portion of the Gardiner and Lake Shore Boulevard. Cancelled shortly after Rob Ford’s mayoral victory, the EA was resurrected earlier this year following a majority vote by city council. City engineers warn the Gardiner will become unusable in less than a decade if no action is taken. The meeting is Thursday, June 13, inside the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

An alternative to funding infrastructure through the public purse, P3s are formal contracts between government agencies and private sector companies. Metrolinx is using the model in the construction of four future light rail transit lines for the city.

Subway-riding music lovers checking out the North by Northeast (NXNE) festival will have the pleasure of a video art exhibition this year. Over the years the venerable independent music festival has expanded its offerings to

include films, an interactive media showcase and comedy sets. For its 18th year, organizers teamed up with Pattison Onestop to curate NXNE Art, which will take place on the subway platform video screens operated by the advertising company throughout the festival from June 10 to 16. Subway screens will showcase a rotating selection of 30-second silent video clips on a variety of urban and otherworldly themes.

Arena in Cedarvale Park In the Hood exhibit at Oakwood Village Library named for former York mayor FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com Youth from the Oakwood Avenue and Vaughan Road area are putting their artwork on display for an exhibit at Oakwood Village Library and Arts Centre Monday, June 17. The exhibit will be made up of work done by participants in Art Starts’ In the Hood, a multidisciplinary, after-school, art drop-in program, which was held at the Oakwood Village Library and Arts Centre. The free weekly hour and a half program, which ran Mondays from January to June, was open to youths aged six to 12 and worked with professional artists Zahide Ugar, Virginia Tran and Doug Hurst to create printed T-shirts, silk flower blossoms and papier mache masks, among other things. “My experience at In the

Hood was a very memorable activity,” participant Arles Cepero, 10, said in a release. “It was very fun and I learned many new things.” Program director Myra Leibu said flyers were posted in the neighbourhood advertising the program, along with word getting out through schools and social networking.

We had such a warm, enthusiastic response. It was a beautiful dynamic with the kids. – Myra Leibu

“It was a wild range of different art,” she said, adding 22 young people, both male and female, participated. “We had such a warm, enthusiastic response. It was a beautiful dynamic with the kids. They

helped each other out and hung out. It was really amazing.” In the Hood will start up again come fall, but those looking to get their art fix in the summer can enrol in camp Art in XS, which starts July 2, Leibu said. Art Starts is a charitable organization which has spent 20 years offering artistic programming in the city’s underserved neighbourhoods. Projects include the Limitless Heights mural on Ranee Avenue, a mural at Dupont and Dundas streets and the photo planters project along Eglinton Avenue, east of Dufferin Street. The In the Hood exhibit will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at 341 Oakwood Ave., in the lower level theatre.

>>>from page 1 he in politics? Then I asked him what happened to his wife and he said they’re divorced, so I asked, ‘well, what’s wrong with him?’” she said with a laugh. “And we’ve been together since. It was meant to be, we were meant to be together.” White, a pharmacist for 20 years, was re-elected into office twice, defeating Fergus ‘Fergy’ Brown in 1974 and 1976. He returned to politics in 1980 when he was elected a Metropolitan Toronto Councillor.

White’s political interests lay in providing public housing for seniors, environmental issues in the city such as cleaning up the Humber River and preserving Cedarvale Park. The community recognized his efforts and named an arena in Cedarvale Park after him. He served as councillor until his retirement in 1988. During his retirement White and his wife travelled together – Australia, New Zealand, Cairo, Italy, Turkey – creating lasting memories together at every stop along

the way. “He loved to travel,” Appleby said. “We did a lot of travelling together. When you’re retired you have lots of time to do it. I’m so glad we did.” White spent his last days with Appleby in their York home. “I could feel his love and I felt that he was appreciative of the fact that he was with me,” she said. Philip White is also survived by his two sons, Kevin and Byron, and his brother, Murray White.

Hits for Handymen

Father's Day is right around the corner and that means many children, spouses and other family members will be scrambling to locate the perfect gifts for the men in their lives. Put away those coupons for neckties and remote control caddies. There's a good chance Dad wants something a little less cliche and more in tune with his interests. If you think carefully about gift ideas, there's bound to be something that will be a perfect fit.

Some dads get excited about the latest tablets or smartphones. They may keep abreast of virus-detection software or think the technological gadgets sold in those speciality magazines and mall stores are must-haves. Chances are if you spend enough time with Dad you know just what he likes to dabble in, and you can get him an electronic device he'll find invaluable. Although it may seem difficult on the surface to find a gift for Dad that he truly will enjoy and

If your dad is a regular Mr. Fix-It, it’s a good idea to head to your local home improvement store and pick up that one gadget or tool he’s been missing. Check out his tool kit for older or more beatup items, and replace the ones he uses most. If you want to go all-out, consider purchasing a power tool to replace a manual or out-of-date one he currently owns. – MS

Sports If Dad follows a particular team or sport, gifts inspired by his love of a favorite team are a surefire bet for success. Team jersies, game memorabilia, tickets to the next at-home game, or an expanded satellite dish or cable TV sports programming package are some gift ideas that will coordinate with a sports theme. Some dads also may be content to simply hit the links or spend a few hours at the batting cages.

Personalized Gifts Personalized gifts can show that special man in your life that you care about him in a special way. Instead of a run-of-the-mill item pulled off a store shelf, a personalized gift can feature a name, date or sentiment right on the gift itself. Think about giving Dad a personalized plaque that designates his work

area in the garage or a pocket lighter or photo frame engraved with a special message or his name. An embroidered bath robe, or a golf bag embroidered with his initials may also be a special treat.

Fit for Foodies As the adage goes, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Take advantage of these words of wisdom by gifting your Dad with food or culinary-themed items. Dad may be an amateur chef and will enjoy a cookbook by his favorite chef. Or he may have a restaurant he insists on going to all the time, so guaranteeing a gift card to said restaurant will be a hit. If Dad appreciates not only the taste, but also the culture of food, plan a tour of food shops in the area or go on a wine- and cheese-tasting adventure.

Gear Heads Some dads get revved up about automotive gifts, especially if they spend the weekends pampering their prized cars or trucks. If he tends to have a wrench in hand and head under the hood, treat your father to some new supplies for his automotive pursuits. Quality car waxes and upholstery cleaners are always in demand. Or give him a gift certificate to his favorite hand-wash, auto-detailing center. Gas

use, all it takes is a close examination of his likes to find something appropriate.

Feeling Congested? hits next phase of public consultations RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com The city has launched the next phase of an ongoing public consultation seeking residential feedback on future transit priorities. More than 30,000 people weighed in during the first phase of Feeling Congested? earlier in the year. This time around, the campaign, conceived by chief city planner Jennifer Keesmaat to gain a better sense of transit issues, will focus on measuring support for specific projects. To that end, Keesmaat and the city planning department have compiled a list of unfunded rapid transit proposals, from subways and light rail to bus-dedicated lanes. The full list – available at www.feelingcongested.ca – includes projects planned for every part of the city, from the downtown relief subway line, considered a priority for

completion by Metrolinx, to proposed LRTs to serve new condominium highrise developments sprouting up along the transforming waterfront. Feedback on the 24 transit projects would allow city planners to create a clear set of transit priorities to recommend to city council in November, said Keesmaat. “We’re being very focused in the conversations we’re having,” she said last week. “We’ve shifted the conversation to talk about transit priorities and achieving a very specific outcome.” To promote the campaign, Keesmaat and members of the city’s planning department took to the subway system last Thursday morning, passing out packages of tissues emblazoned with a Feeling Congested? sticker to commuters traveling along the Yonge-University-Spadina line.

While passing out the tissue packs, Keesmaat and her team also learned about the rigours of transit travel from commuters like Pamini Rasalingam. Rasalingam, on board a train north toward Downsview station from downtown spoke briefly with the chief planner. A regular transit user, she said her main concern was the unpredictable level of service. “If there’s a certain time a train or bus is coming, it should be accurate to that,” said the York University student who doesn’t have a driver’s licence. “I could be waiting for five or 20 minutes. It’s not consistent.” Several events are planned for the consultations in the coming months, including discussion panels and town halls. Visit www.feelingcongested. ca for a full list of Feeling Congested? events and a promotional web video.

FREDDIE’S NO FRILLS SUPPORTS CAMP JUMOKE Freddie’s No Frills (243 Alberta Avenue) held a charity walk and barbecue last Saturday in support of Camp Jumoke and children with Sickle Cell. In 1994, the Jumoke Committee was established by a group of health-care professionals and individuals concerned about the emotional well-being of children who have Sickle Cell. Camp Jumoke is the only camp in Canada that serves the unique emotional and health-care needs of these children. Freddie’s No Frills has a proud tradition of giving back to the community, and is happy to support this worthy cause.

Council asks province to extend the vote to permanent residents DAVID NICKLE dnickle@insidetoronto.com Toronto council has voted to ask the province to allow more than 250,000 permanent residents living in the city to vote in municipal elections. Council approved that request along with a slew of other proposed changes to the way that the city conducts elections by a 21-20 vote. The vote came after an intense

public campaign to reform the municipal electoral system to, among other things, make it easier for disabled individuals to cast ballots and to re-jig the current first-past-the-postsystem of vote counting to try a ranked ballot. But if the province acceded to council’s request and approved allowing non-citizens to vote, Toronto could become the first municipality in Canada whose council

was elected, in part, by noncitizens. “I’m so relieved right now,” said Desmond Cole, the past project co-ordinator of iVote Toronto, a grassroots organization that has been promoting the idea of extending the franchise to Torontonians who may not be Canadians. “We have to celebrate this moment... .This council has taken one more step forward, and we have to thank all the

people who’ve been fighting for this over the years.” Toronto council took most of Tuesday’s meeting to fight over the proposal. Many on council were uneasy extending a voting franchise to permanent residents who don’t yet have full citizenship. “I think that people who do come to the country should work for the right to have the vote and do something to prove themselves,” said

York West Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti. Toronto Centre-Rosedale Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam argued council already makes a point of consulting the public – including non-citizen Torontonians – on issues such as whether to locate a casino downtown. “We’re often asking ‘how do you want us to run the city’ and we’re saying we value your opinion,” she said. “So

it strikes me as disingenuous that the day we really want to hear from residents (election day), we don’t want to hear from you anymore. All of a sudden we don’t want to cast our net as widely as possible, we don’t want to hear from everyone. Now just a select group of you.”
