DAVID NICKLE Supporters from business, the arts and government for a Toronto bid to host Expo in 2025 brought a new privately funded report to hard sell the idea at City Hall this month. “ We’ve c o m e t o g e t h e r because we want to share our passionate belief (in Expo 2025),” said Claire Hopkinson, CEO of the Toronto Arts Council and co-chair of the Expo 2025 volunteer bid committee. “We all know instinctively that it would be a tremendous oppor-

On Oct. 14, the report was unveiled by the volunteer group and their city hall champion, Toronto Centre-Rosedale Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam. The report suggests that the incremental cost for hosting >>>EXPO, page 7

A controversial men’s shelter slated for Runnymede Road and St. Clair Avenue West has been reduced from 100 to 50 beds and will now include on-site counselling for those battling homelessness. The input of a resident-driven community liaison committee has resulted in changes to the men’s shelter report that was unanimously adopted by city council at its Oct. 5 meeting. The newly approved report recommends that a 24-hour,

Procreation problem solvers get a little wild The reproductive physiology unit at the Toronto Zoo helps animals make babies Fannie sunshine For two years, the female patient suffered from irregular menstrual cycles. Doctors were about to explore assisted fertility options when she became pregnant on her own. In another case, fertility specialists were stumped as to why another female patient could not conceive - until a recording of rain shower sounds was enough to get her in the mood and get the job done naturally. Those treated by Dr. Gabriela Mastromonaco aren’t your typical patients seeking reproductive assistance. T h e y a re h o u s e d i n Scarborough’s Toronto Zoo, specifically selected for artificial insemination in hopes of producing offspring to keep the numbers of their species up and, if possible, releasing these animals back into their natural habitats. INVESTIGATING PROBLEMS According to the Toronto Zoo, it’s the only Canadian zoo with a reproductive physiologist on staff. Located within the Animal Health Centre, the reproductive physiology unit is made up of two laboratories, the endocrinology lab and gamete biology lab, where staff, students and visiting scientists work together to investigate fundamental problems related to reproduction in non-domestic species. The goal is to assist with the care and management of captive and free-ranging populations in an effort to maintain reproductive health and ensure the preservation of genetic diversity. Mastromonaco, curator of the Meadowvale Road and Old Finch Avenue zoo’s reproductive programs and research, said it’s always preferred for animals to breed on their own, but for a number of reasons - some known, some not - that might be easier said than done. There could be behavioural

or medical issues at play, or lack of a male paramour, in which case semen would have to be flown in. Very much similar to fertility testing humans go through, animal hormones are tested in a lab to look for abnormalities, cycles are monitored, and semen is collected to freeze for insemination, Mastromonaco said, adding she works with more than 50 species a year. And like humans, animals can go on birth control pills the same women would use - if the zoo isn’t trying to breed a particular species, she said, adding the gorillas are currently on contraception. The Toronto Zoo’s reproductive program, which began in 1988 (prior to this all breeding was done naturally), lends its support to other zoos, primarily within Canada, Mastromonaco said. And though she’s been at the program’s helm for a decade, she still has a lot to learn about the reproductive health of the animals treated. The zoo’s animals typically try to conceive on their own for two to three years before Mastromonaco and her team step in, who will then evaluate “why babies aren’t coming,” she said. Sometimes the issue isn’t physical. Sometimes it’s as simple as creating the right atmosphere - hence the rain shower music.

THE LYNX They might not be the most popular draw at the Toronto Zoo, but the Canada lynx still claws in quite the crowd. Ember and her two female kittens, who were born sometime in April 2016 (the exact date is not known as Ember locked herself in a den for days before emerging with her new offspring), delight both national and international visitors who want to see animals native to Canada. The kittens, who have not been named, are playful and relaxed, and will stay with Ember until next spring, said Brad de Wolde of Enniskillen, Ontario, zoo keeper of the Canadian domain. The siblings spend their days climbing, exploring, and learning hunting skills from their mom, while feasting on a diet made up of ground and raw meat on bones. Bearing a close resemblance to a giant house c at , the Canada lynx has a very short body, small tail, and long legs. It can be found in the wild in boreal forests across Canada, from Newfoundland to the Yukon, along with Western Manitoba, Idaho, Washington, and Utah. But as easy as that may sound, pinpointing fertility treatment and what works and what doesn’t is still something Mastromonaco

The Toronto Zoo’s reproductive programs are led by Dr. Gabriela Mastromonaco.

is figuring out. An Indian rhino calf lost a pregnancy because she didn’t have enough progesterone to sustain it. Cheetahs have undergone treatment for five or six years without producing offspring. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an international organization focused in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, has listed the Indian rhinoceros, polar bear, cheetah, and giant panda some of Toronto Zoo’s biggest draws - as vulnerable. Come next year, the reproductive program currently housed in two rooms inside a 40-year-old building will move into a state-of-theart facility, which will allow Mastromonaco and her staff

more research equipment and space to house and transfer animals more easily, she said, adding the old site will be used as a curatorial lab. Bison insemination is the next “big project” for Mastromonaco, adding the zoo has kept 35-year-old bison sperm frozen in the lab. “As long as the samples are frozen, we can bring them back,” she said. “We can breed across time and space.” The cost of artificially inseminating an animal is $500 to $600 a try, with invitro fertilization running $3,000 to $4,000 a pop. But, with certain species dangerously close to extinction, such as the Grevy’s zebra, “you can’t put a price” on reproduction, she said.

Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue act like typical twins: teasing each other, play fighting, and competing for mom’s attention. Except these twins walk on all fours, are black and white, and will eventually munch on bamboo, their food of choice. Born at the Toronto Zoo Oct. 13, 2015, the giant panda cubs are still very much a crowd favourite, with visitors lining up for hours to catch of glimpse of them and their mother, Er Shun. Da Mao, one of three potential fathers, is housed in a separate enclosure. The first giant panda cubs born in Canada, Jia Panpan (Canadian hope), and his sister, Jia Yueyue (Canadian joy), are still bottle fed, although they like to chew on bamboo, said giant panda zoo keeper Emily Noel of Mitchell’s Corners, Ontario. Weighing in at 20.5 pounds, Jia Panpan loves to play, knocking his sister off a wood plank as they roll on the ground. The smaller of the two, 16.5 pound Jia Yueyue is the more shy, independent twin, according to Noel.

Baby animals at the zoo signify reproductive win

veryone loves baby animals. Visitors have flocked to see the brand new additions to the Toronto Zoo, which include Juno the polar bear cub, Rey the zebra filly, and arguably the most popular, the panda bear cubs Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue who recently celebrated their first birthday. While seeing the cute baby animals are worth the price of admission, what’s equally impressive is the work that goes behind the scenes to bring these animals to life – literally. The special report this week explores the fascinating world of Dr. Gabriela Mastromonaco, curator of the Toronto Zoo’s reproductive programs and research. our view She along with her team and visiting scientists work together Work helps to investigate problems related reproduction in non-domestic to conserve to species. It’s always preferred for animals species to breed on their own, notes Mastromonaco, but sometimes there are behavioural or medical issues at play. Other times, it’s a lack of a suitable partner that prevent mating to occur, in which case semen that is collected to freeze for insemination might have to be flown in. The problem could also lie in not creating the right environment or mood for animals to procreate. Mastromonaco, who works with more than 50 species a year, admits though trying to figure out exactly which fertility treatments work and which ones don’t is still an ongoing challenge. But whatever the issue a particular species might have, the Toronto Zoo’s goal is to assist with the care and management of both captive and free-ranging populations in an effort to maintain reproductive health and ensure the preservation of genetic diversity. In other words, the zoo hopes to produce offspring to keep the numbers of endangered and vulnerable species up. That includes the polar bear, the Indian rhinoceros, cheetah and giant panda, to name a few, as listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, an international organization focused in the field of nature conservation.

What to call the young Leafs line? I need your help loyal readers. The reason I’m reaching out is that I have a funny feeling that the Auston Matthews, William Nylander, Zach Hyman trio is going to end up getting dubbed “The Kid Line.” It’s not that it isn’t a catchy phrase. It is. Or isn’t a fitting phrase. It’s that, too. Very much so. The problem is, it’s not original. There already was a Kid Line. On your very own Maple Leafs, in fact. From 1929 1936. The line consisted of centre Joe Primeau, in between right winger Charlie Conacher and left winger Harvey “Busher” Jackson, all of whom are in the Hockey Hall of Fame. I remember that line like it was yesterday. No, not because I was around back then, smarty pants. That was way before my time. Yes, way. Very way. How way is besides the point. I only remember it like

jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY it was yesterday because it was yesterday that I made a point of going back and looking up The Kid Line’s bios again. What prompted me to do that was seeing all three grace the Top 100 Maple Leafs list of all time that was introduced during that special centennial celebration at the Air Canada Centre before the opening home game last Saturday night. I seemed to recall that they were even younger than the current young troika but I wanted to make absolutely sure. It turns out I was right. When it comes to kids being kids, they indeed were more junior than today’s group. Primeau was only 23, and Conacher and Jackson were both just 18 when they all first hit the ice together.

Meanwhile, left-winger Hyman is 24, right-winger Nylander is 20 and centre Matthews is 19. There have been a few more Kid Lines since then in the NHL, but the name only caught on with the fans of the teams they played on. There is only one real Kid Line. Primeau, Conacher and Jackson. So no Kid Line 2, OK? Or Kid Line II. Over to you. The ball is in your court. If you can say that when talking about hockey. But you better get the lead out. Or the ink out, if you’re using a pen instead of a pencil to come up with a name. There’s no way of knowing how long Matthews, Nylander and Hyman will remain a unit. Coaches typically like to experiment with different combinations in order to keep the players from getting complacent or having them get comfortable with a bunch of players, but also to give

the team different looks to keep the opposition off guard. They could each have two different linemates if you wait too long. A unique name is a must. Matthews, Nylander and Hyman deserve a handle created just for them. With that in mind, that means ixnay to the New Kids On The Block, which I fear is likely running a close second to Kid Line. Not just because it is also associated with another group, but more importantly the New Kids On The Block aren’t kids anymore. They’re all pushing 40-something. What’s more, it’s probably been a while since they’ve been anywhere near the block, let alone on it. They’re likely everywhere but on the block when you get right down to it.

Expo would focus on Portlands >>>from page 1 the world’s fair in 2025 would be $1.91 billion – dramatically lower than other bids. In Dubai, the budget was set at 6.46 billion euros ($9.33 billion Cdn.) for the 2020 Expo. The Shanghai Expo in 2010 cost $5.8 billion. Milan’s 2015 World Expo was widely criticized for its budget of 13 billion Euros ($18 billion). Wong-Tam said that it was unfair to compare Toronto’s bid to Shanghai’s because of the scale to which China operates for international events. And she said that Milan’s bid was inflated because of the cost of land acquisition. The Toronto Expo bid, she said, would concentrate in Toronto’s Portlands, where the land is already in the city’s possession. The report also indicates that the event would operate with a surplus, with direct revenues from ticket sales, sponsorships and other revenue sources tallying to $1.64

It’s unclear as to whether Mayor John Tory fully supports the bid-Wong-Tam noted that he’d been briefed on the report, but wanted to see that other levels of government would pitch in. But she argued the fair, that would showcase Toronto to the world and bring other nations in to showcase their own innovations, would be a major boost to not only the city but the country. “This is not corporate Canada’s Expo, this Expo belongs to the people of Canada, the citizens of Toronto and it’s a nation building exercise,” said Wong-Tam.

Short trips being made by car: report A new report suggests 716,000 short car trips across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) could be made by bicycle instead.

It’s the first time according to the TTC any move has been made to spotlight its subway performers, and if it proves a success, the zones could appear at more stations.

HOLY SPIRIT, you who makes me see everything and shows me the way to reach my ideal, you who gives me the divine gift to forgive and forget all the wrong that is done to me and you who are in all instances of my life with me. I, in this short dialogue, want to thank you for everything, and affirm once more that I never want to be separated from you no matter how great the material desires may be. I want to be with you and my loved ones in your perpetual glory. Amen ~A. B. This prayer should be said for 3 consecutive days. After the 3rd day, your sincere wish will be granted no matter how difficult it may be. Promise to publish it on granting of your favour. The idea is to spread the wonder of the Holy Spirit
