She and a core group of volunteers dreamed of a place where people with disabilities could participate in meaningful activities designed to promote self-care skills and active participation within the community. The goal was and remains for all people with disabilities to work with and for their communities, through vocational, recreation and volunteer opportunities. Through the years Alternatives has grown from a home-based program to a respected model of success within the community. For more info, call 905-264-9007.

A SLAM DUNK TO BENEFIT FUTURE VAUGHAN HOSPITAL Royal LePage Real Estate Professionals Inc, Brokerage recently held their Annual BBQ at Doctors Mclean District Park in Woodbridge. As part of the festivities, a dunk tank (provided by Joseph Trimboli - Mortgage Agent of The Mortgage Centre/Idirect Mortgages Inc.) was set up for the guest’s enjoyment. Peter Campoli, Broker of Record of Royal Lepage Real Estate Professionals (pictured left) challenged all guests to volunteer being dunked. Gerry Pacitti local realtor courageously sat in the hot seat and was successfully dunked. As a result of this achievement a $2000 donation was made on behalf of Royal LePage Real Estate Professionals Inc., Brokerage to the Mackenzie Health Foundation for the Future Vaughan Hospital.

Elections Ontario is unable to determine who is responsible for distributing an unsigned anti-Liberal information card during this month’s provincial byelection. “Unfortunately, it is very difficult to trace the source of anonymous posters and flyers,” Maria Martins, manager of election finances wrote in an e-mail Wednesday. However, a complaint about the matter is being kept on file for “future action by the Chief Electoral Officer should the identity of the flyer’s publisher be subsequently revealed,” she added. An unsigned, two-sided card attacking the Liberals was mailed to homes in the Woodbridge area and possibly elsewhere in Vaughan in the week leading up to Sept. 6. On one side of the card appear the words Vaughan Citizen Editorial August 9th/12. Below that was a re-printed version of The Citizen’s editorial criticizing former Vaughan Liberal MPP Greg Sorbara for stepping down just 10 months after being elected when he promised to serve out the entire term of office. Since the card does not bear the name of any other organization or individual, many people assumed, incorrectly, The Citizen was responsible and called the newspaper to

express their concerns. But the Citizen was not behind it. On the other side of the card there is a picture of a family with the words: Be on the side of Vaughan families and taxpayers do not vote Liberal above. To the right of the picture it said: On September 6th, lets (sic) send a message to the McGuinty and Sorbara-Liberals. Below that a number of statements were printed including: We do not support Liberal quitters and we do not support Liberal lies and inaction regarding our hospital. At the bottom was a message encouraging people to get out and vote on Sept. 6 for “anyone else but definitely not them.” The Progressive Conservatives, throughout the campaign, used excerpts from The Citizen’s editorial in some of its press releases while Tory candidate Tony Genco and his supporters often used the phrase Sorbara-Liberals when criticizing the Grits. But the PCs vehemently denied responsibility for the information card. The NDP has also denied responsibility. Elections Ontario is looking into the matter as the card appears to have been sent out in violation of election rules as it did not comply with the Election Finances Act, which requires all political advertising to identify who is responsible for placing the ad as well as who paid for it.

Police are looking to speak to friends of a Vaughan 26-year-old and another man who were gunned down in a notoriously violent part of Etobicoke — often referred to as Doomstown. Warsame Ali, from Concord and Suleiman Ali, who are not related but friends, were killed on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at about 1:20 a.m. Both were pronounced

dead at the scene, just outside Greenholme Middle Junior School, suffering from gunshot wounds. The pair become the fifth and sixth Somali-Canadian men to be killed in Toronto since early June. Many, like Warsame and Suleiman, were killed and left for dead in the streets Detetive Paul Wardon, from the Toronto Police, said both families are very shaken up over the deaths, but were yesterday assisting police and the

coroner with their autopsies. Although the only suspect description is that a tall thin dark male was seen running from the scene, Det. Wardon hopes more facts will soon be revealed. “Any information that comes out will come out quickly,” he said. “So far we have had witnesses come forward while others said they would prefer not to speak with the police. We don’t have lots to go on and limited witnesses, so what we are looking for is for some of

their friends to speak with us so we can find out what they were doing in the area.” Currently the investigating team is pouring over hours of surveillance videos from numerous cameras to find the pre-incident whereabouts of the victims and any suspects. The neighbourhood where the men were found, near Jamestown Crescent, has in the past been associated with the Jamestown Crips.

Suspect arrested in home improvement scam By Jeremy Grimaldi

jgrimaldi@yrmg.com

An Innisfil man has turned himself into police after allegedly pulling off numerous home improvement scams in Vaughan. The arrest comes only weeks after The Vaughan Citizen published an article recounting the three incidents that took place on Arista Gates and Woodland

Trail Court, in Woodbridge in July. York Regional Police began an investigation after victims, ranging in age between 50 to 60, came forward complaining that a man had come by their home telling them that for about $1,000 he could fix their home’s shingles or ventilation. In one case no work was started, in the two others the

work was never completed. “Residents need to be aware that any reputable company will do the work and bill you afterwards,” Const. McQuillan said in August. He also advised people never to pay for services up front. Police believe there may be more victims who have yet to come forward. A 46-year-old has been

A Woodbridge car racing team claimed a place in sports history earlier this month. AIM Autosport FXDD Racing with Ferrari won the Grand AM Rolex GT Sports Car Series team and driver championship, becoming the first Canadian team to ever achieve that feat. “Any sport is tough to win in, but racing is probably one of the most difficult because of all the variables involved so championships don’t come easy,” Ian Willis, team coowner, said. “Whenever you win one, it’s extremely gratifying,” AIM Autosport claimed the overall victory following a secondplace finish at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, California Sept. 9. That netted the team a total of 364 points for the season and an insurmountable 39-point lead in the standings. Over the course of a dozen races this year, AIM Autosport reached the podium several times, including posting three first-place finishes. “For us to win, out of this little boutique shop, I think it’s a big deal,” team co-owner Andrew Bordin said. The team’s success came in its

The driving pair won the championship in 2010 for the Mazdabacked SpeedSource team as well. Mr. Bordin said capturing the team and driver championship gives AIM Autosport a lot more “credibility” in the racing world. “It’s a tough business so amongst our peers and our competitors, it’s a big accomplishment for us,” he said. “On the business side, it helps solidify a lot of relationships. We’re always selling sponsorship to certain businesses so we’re always trying to get eyeballs on our race car to give them the return.”

A Woodbridge wedding dress shop associated with a renowned Italian-Canadian bridal gown designer caught fire under suspicious circumstances on Tuesday night. The blaze, which caused about $125,000 in damages at Inis Di Santo’s daughter’s shop, named Veronica Di Santo Atelier, at 4040 Steeles Ave., is now under investigation by York Region Police and the Ontario Fire Marshal. Police said that although the fire was eventually put out, the contents of the storefront were “severely damaged”. “The investigation is ongo-

ing and police are asking witnesses to come forward,” the release added. Although neither Inis nor Veronica returned calls to The Citizen, a bridal shop owner located next door said he was stunned by the fire. “I came in this morning to open the store and I saw all these police,” said Issa Adinajen, owner of Sparko Bridal Boutique. “I was very surprised when I saw that everything was burned. I’ve been here since 2001 and I’ve never seen that before.” A business profile on the mother and daughter team said that Inis was born in Italy and was educated in Europe and South America.

York Regional Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred in Markham Monday afternoon. At about 3 p.m., a woman knocked on an apartment door and waved a piece of paper, which was seen through the peephole by one of the victims, police said. When the door was open, five men forced their way into the apartment and assaulted two men. Police are looking for a black man and a Persian man at this time. Both were wearing black-hooded sweatshirts and shorts, police said. There is no description for the

FOREVER XXI

First responders should be honoured with a day of recognition, Newmarket-Aurora MPP Frank Klees said. Mr. Klees hopes his private member’s bill, recently introduced in the legislature for first reading, will gain the support it needs later this month to make May 1 First Responders Day to honour emergency medical service workers, firefighters and police officers. “I never presume what will happen in the legislature,” Mr. Klees said with a laugh when asked if he thought the bill will be implemented. “I am hoping it is one of those rare occasions where all parties agree.”

He decided to pursue the bill after reading Newmarket author Vali Stone’s book, 9-1-1, which delves into the memories of firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses and military personnel. “These accounts confirmed for me that there are heroes among us,” he said. Everyone, from first responders to volunteers who dedicate countless hours to emergency response, deserve to be recognized for their selfless service to their communities and the province, he added. The date corresponds to Emergency Preparedness Week. The bill will be debated at Queen’s Park Sept. 27.

Some parents have spoken. Some teachers, who coach varsity sports teams in the York Region Athletic Association, have also voiced their displeasure about the exorbitant hikes in user fees imposed on students wanting to play for their varsity team this year. Those concerns did not fall on deaf ears as the Ministry of Education announced earlier today it will provide financial assistance to prevent the situation from escalating, as the YRAA has already experienced a decline of up to 29 teams from the fall sports schedule.

Following approval of the York Region District School Board’s budget, the ministry has provided additional education grants to support student learning and engagement. As a result, the board will reallocate $450,000 to cover more of the transportation costs for school clubs and teams. The funds are to be divided among all 31 York Region District School Board schools, based on the formula used to determine the existing transportation disbursement of $150,000. This information was not available when the board’s budget was passed in the spring.

905-895-0289 www.bbbsy.ca

“We are committed to equity and excellence in education,” York Region District School Board director of education Ken Thurston said. “We are pleased to provide further support for transportation costs, and make participation in school clubs and athletics more accessible for all of our students.” The additional funding will definitely help lower fees for participation in student teams and clubs, Richmond Hill’s Alexander Mackenzie High School principal Shawn Bredin said. “That is good news for all students and families.” Under new guidelines released

EPILEPSY ... UNDERSTANDING THROUGH EDUCATION

by the ministry last year, fees cannot be charged for materials students need to graduate, such as textbooks or basic course supplies. As a result, some students at the secondary level had seen an increase in fees for extracurricular athletics and clubs this year as the board reallocated funding to support curriculum needs. While receiving something is better than nothing, it remains to be seen if the money allocated for each school is enough to save teams that have been dropped from the fall sports schedule Steve Shantz, YRAA athletic coordinator, said it’s too late to see

a return of any teams that elected to drop out for the fall agenda as schedules have already been drawn up. But, he said, it would help teams currently playing this fall to reduce costs. As well, Shantz was optimistic it will help teams participate in the upcoming winter and spring sport agendas. The York Region District School Board is the third largest school district in Ontario with more than 120,000 students in 170 elementary and schools and 31 secondary schools.

Concord company offers 100th Grey Cup card set BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA

mhayakawa@yrmg.com

When Paul Marin attempted to see what special sports memorabalia items were coming out in recognition of the upcoming 100th Grey Cup game to be played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, he noticed there wasn’t a lot. During his search, about the only items of significance he noticed were a commemorative coin and book. As executive director of Fantactics, a Concord-based sports and entertainment marketing agency, Marin felt there should be more to honour a significant part of Canadiana. Through his effort and being involved in sports collectibles, Marin and his company worked in conjunction with the Canadian Football League and Canadian Football Players Association to recently unveil a special set of com-

memorative sports cards. Known as the CFL 100 Years Historical Box Set, the 200-card set depicts classic moments of the league starting from the first Grey Cup game in 1909 to the present. As well, each set will include a replica of the commemorative coin to be used for the opening kickoff of the 100th Grey Cup game and one card for admittance to the CFL Hall of Fame in Hamilton. “The 100th Grey Cup is a big event,” Marin said of this year’s championship game on Nov. 25. “This commemorative set of cards will bring some prestige.” In devising the commemorative card set, Marin said it would not have been possible foremost without approval from the CFL Players Association. Meeting with the association earlier this year and presenting them with the concept, Marin recalled they were quite receptive. From there, they went to the CFL

for final approval In creating the card set, Marin said the CFL Players Association gave plenty of input as to what they wanted to see in it. Acknowledging it’s been a timeconsuming task in compiling historical information and to determine what pictures would ultimately be printed on each of the 200 cards, Marin’s work was made a little easier through the assistance from a couple of his company cohorts in Cathy Lo Parco, Sonia Ciampa and Christian Marin. As well, Marin was quick to add the CFL Hall of Fame were there to offer help when needed to verify and provide additional information and in contacting some former players. “They were really co-operative. We couldn’t have done it without them,” he said of the Hall of Fame’s co-operation. Within the collectible set are cards depicting images of past

Grey Cup games such as the Mud Bowl, Wind Bowl and Fog Bowl, past players, coaches, general managers, current and former teams including those from the United States during their brief time in the league, stadiums and even former prime ministers who took part in Grey Cup game ceremonies. There’s even one card commemorating the late actor John Candy’s involvement during his time as part owner of the Toronto Argonauts. “John (Candy) was a big football fan and we contacted one of his family members to see if it was okay to use his picture on one of the cards and they checked with the rest of their family to give their approval and they were fine with it,” recalled Marin. In contacting the former players or their families to receive permission in using them as part of the card set, Marin said there were no objections. “They felt it would be a privilege

to be a part of the set,” he said. On some of the cards, Lo Parco noted some have QR codes that can open up the image or see the actual play of the particular game that’s on the card. With the cards being printed by Quebec-based Extreme Sportscards, Marin is hoping they can sell at least 10,000 sets. Through the sales, he said, a good portion of the money would go to the CFL Players Association. “That would be our goal,” he said. “It would be great for the CFL and their players association.” As for the final product, Marin is satisfied that the time and effort put in can enhance the CFL’s profile. “Sure it’s been a lot of work,” he conceded. “But it’s a wonderful historic set. If you took the information from each card, you could write a book.”

The president of York Region’s public elementary teacher federation is predicting a record setting vote in two weeks in favour of strike action. David Clegg said records are being set across the province as teachers go to the polls to express their anger over the Liberals’ anti-strike wage-freeze legislation. The lowest result was 97 per cent in support of strike and York’s 4,800 elementary teachers, set to vote for the first time in the federation’s history at the same local meeting Oct. 4, are expected to come out similarly strong, he said. York Region’s high school teachers take their strike votes Monday. It will be up to the unions to decide what form that strike will take, said Mr. Clegg, the former head of the provincial union. Teachers could walk off the job, he said, leaving it to cabinet to intervene directly, something the recently passed legislation gives it power to do. Should that happen, he said, teachers’ current haphazard withdrawal of volunteer work will intensify, he said, and “chaos will ensue”. Until those votes are taken, the labour dispute is

in limbo and teachers are making individual choices whether to continue with sports teams, extracurricular clubs and other extra duties, he said. “McGuinty completely underestimated the damage being inflicted on public education in the province,” he said. “It speaks to the fundamental lack of understanding that it’s the goodwill of teachers that makes the system work.” The Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation encouraged its members to wear black today in protest, and yesterday members of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario were urged not to take part in board meetings or anything outside of their classroom duties to mark “McGuinty Mondays”. Students, meanwhile, are mobilizing on social media to protest the loss of their extracurriculars, the latest being a walk-out staged today at Runnymede Collegiate in Toronto. Students at Stephen Lewis Secondary in Vaughan, Maple High School and Bramalae Secondary spent afternoons chanting outside their schools last week. Richmond Green Secondary School students plan a protest tomorrow. In a Facebook site set up by the Richmond Hill students, organiz-

ers said they were not taking sides in the dispute. “We want the unions and the government to talk. We do not want to be caught in between this political battle,” the Facebook introduction said. “I don’t want them to be caught in the middle either,” education Minister Laurel Broten said in an interview today, “which is why on many occasions I said to the teachers to come directly to me and leave them out of it.” She encouraged students to ask questions and inform themselves on the issues. “There’s a lot of misinformation out there ...and if I can do anything to help I’d be pleased to do that.” At the same time, she suggests school boards post information on the status of extracurricular activities at their schools, to help clear up any confusion parents are feeling. Ms Broten said she is proud of students who are taking a stand. “It’s critically important that they inform themselves of the issues and raise their voice.” “It’s also important, for those just paying attention now, to realize we did make every effort to reach agreement,” she said, pointing to the francophone and Catholic teachers who were able to reach a deal.

York Regional Police needs your help with two separate, but possibly related bank robberies by a pair of suspects investigators have dubbed the Early Bird Bandits. Insp. Fred Moffatt and hold-up unit Det.-Sgt. Mike Fleischaker provided details Thursday at a press conference in Aurora. At about 7:10 a.m. June 18, a man, armed with a handgun, went into the TD Canada Trust bank at 8270 Hwy. 27 in Vaughan. He approached a bank employee and made a demand for cash, police said, adding the man was able to flee with a quantity of cash. The second robbery occurred Aug. 13 at about 7:10 a.m. as employees arrived to open the TD Canada Trust branch at 11730 Yonge St. in Richmond Hill. A man approached =employees, pointed a handgun at them and demanded money. The getaway vehicle was located by police just northwest of the bank. There were no injuries as a result of the incident. In the Vaughan robbery, bank video surveillance showed a five-foot, 11-inch white male in his 20s. He was wearing a mask. The only distinguishing feature, police said, was a large, prominent nose. The suspect in the Richmond Hill heist is white, between 20 and 30 years old and stands five-feet, seveninches with an average build. He wore a painter’s dust mask. In the Vaughan incident, police recovered a bicycle believed to have been ridden to the bank by the suspect. The unisex cycle is a burgundy Jeep Cherokee Country SE mountain bike with no fenders, a broken front brake and a Velo brand seat. If you know who owned the bike or if it was stolen, call police. In the Richmond Hill robbery, the bank employee’s vehicle used in the getaway was abandoned nearby and a black SUV was seen leaving the scene at a high rate of speed. Police would like witnesses to come forward in the case that was deemed disturbing because of the violent takeovers in each case. The similarities in the crimes point to accomplices working together, Insp. Moffatt said. The banks are located in standalone buildings close to major roadways. Both were robbed at the beginning of the work day. In each incident, the suspects threatened staff with death if they didn’t fill knapsacks with money. “We believe it’s the same two people working together,” Insp. Moffatt said. “These are very unique robberies. Very daring. Bank takeovers don’t happen often.” Bank staff reported the suspects did not have accents and the conversations were similar, Det.-Sgt. Fleischaker said. The suspects made similar demands and threats and seemed calm. “What sets these robberies apart are the threats to kill staff and that employees’ vehicles were taken,” he said. York police have conducted a facial recognition investigation based on video imaging. They have also enlisted Ontario Provincial Police geographic profiling and concluded the suspects may live in or near the areas of the robberies. If you have information, call police at 1-866-8765423, ext. 6630 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, leave an anonymous tip 1800222tips.com or text YORK and your tip to CRIMES (274637).

Rona Maynard remembers vividly the impenetrable gloom that overwhelmed her in 1972, when “it seemed that a heavy metal lid had been lowered on my world, blocking out every glimmer of light”. That gloom was depression and it’s gone now — the light is back — and on Oct. 21 she will share that light with others. The former editor of Chatelaine magazine is the keynote speaker discussing From Sad to Glad; Five Surprising Way to Find Joy, at the fourth annual Joy of Aging event. Today is the last day to purchase early bird tickets for the popular event that raises money to support the mental health program at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital. Ms Maynard will share how she overcame depression, an illness that touches

one in five Canadians, striking women twice as often as men. She will be joined by MC Erin Davis, radio personality and co-host of 98.1 CHFI’s Erin and Mike show. Since 2009, the morning fundraiser has grown, with more than 350 women attending in 2011. To date, the Joy of Aging Breakfast has raised $75,000 for Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital (formerly York Central Hospital). This year, guests can learn everything they always wanted to know about mental health but were afraid to ask. Over the past two years, almost 40,000 people sought help from the hospital’s mental health program, an increase of 20 per cent of patients in crisis and 25 per cent in day treatment and outpatient clinic visits. Mental health advocates say these increases reflect south York Region’s increasingly diverse

and growing community in need of help. The program needs four new beds at $6,000 each and $40,000 worth of renovations to ensure comfort and safety for patients and staff. This year’s Joy of Aging event in Vaughan will feature sponsorship booths and a fitness activity, Ask the Experts panel, live music, silent auction, healthy breakfast, comedian, door prizes and gift bags.

GOOD TO KNOW: What: Joy of Aging When: Sunday, Oct. 21, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Where: Bellvue Manor (Jane and Hwy. 7) Tickets: visit www.thejoyofaging.ca or contact Sean Roheim at (905) 707-5220. Price: $65 per ticket until Sept 21. After Sept. 21 $75 per ticket.

The jury is still out on who was more surprised about the $3.7 million dollar win — the winner Vilson DaSilva, or his father who still lives in his native Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A buoyant Mr. DaSilva arrived in Toronto to collect his prize on Sept.10, only five days after his birthday. “What a good birthday present,” said Mr. DaSilva. “Now I know what it feels like to be a lottery winner and it feels great.” The self-employed father-of-two won the millions from Quick Pick, as he usually does, but this time he noticed his lucky number five and his age, 45, on his machinegenerated ticket. He has been playing the lottery for 10 years. He says he plans to take a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to surprise

his father in on his birthday. The winning ticket was purchased at Shell Select Food Store on Yonge Street in Richmond Hill. The win comes as a $16 million Lotto 6/49 ticket purchased at the end of June in Woodbridge remains outstanding. In July the other winner, Terry Hostikka, from Brantford, collected his $16 million and said he would be buying a house on a lake to hunt and fish, but only after he spent the day “getting drunk”. OLG staff said although this has not been the longest wait for someone to retrieve a ticket, it is still significant. Claimants have exactly one year from the date of purchase to claim their prizes.

Thornhill man part of Cuban tribunal Thornhill’s Keith Bolender, a respected university lecturer on Cuban political affairs, has written a second book on the decades-long cold war between the small country and the United States. His first book was Voices from the Other Side: An Oral History of Terrorism Against Cuba. The book received critical acclaim in England, North America and Cuba and Mr. Bolender was even allowed to present a copy personally to Fidel Castro. His latest book is Cuba Under Siege; American Policy, The Revolution and Its People tracing how American policy against Cuba has created a siege mentality and the negative affect it has had on Cuban society. It will be published later this year by Palgrave in New York. This weekend the longtime dispute in philosophy between the two countries is the focus of a Toronto con-

ference on the plight of the Cuban Five, agents sent to Florida to stop terrorist acts, who ended up being imprisoned themselves. The Peoples’ Tribunal and Assembly for Justice for the Cuban Five will be held at Toronto City Hall, council chambers, starting this Saturday, Sept. 22 at 9 a.m. and continuing through Sunday. The tribunal will hear witnesses, including wives of the prisoners, who will testify regarding the historical and political context of this case, its legal process and developments since the trial. Among the jurors will be Mr. Bolender, age 56, joining others such as Danny Glover, internationally acclaimed actor; Cindy Sheehan, radio host and peace advocate; Canadian MP Libby Davies; and a United Church minister. At the end of the conference a legal decision will be rendered.

“Unfortunately, the case is almost completely unknown in Canada and this event is an effort to show that these Cuban agents were simply sent to Florida to try and prevent further acts of terrorism — and ended up being jailed for that,” explained Mr. Bolender. Among the presenting sponsors are the Canadian Network on Cuba, the Canadian Cuban Friendship Association and numerous Canadian union organizations. “I think the tribunal is important and I hope as many people as possible are able to come out. Hopefully the public pressure will make a difference in the movement to release the five,” said Mr. Bolender. There is no cost to attend any part of the event. For more information on the tribunal event, visit www. freethe5peoplestribunal.org - Marney Beck

A New Head Office for YUM! Brands, Inc.

T

hursday, September 13, 2012 marked the start of an exciting new era for the Canadian operations of YUM!, the world’s largest restaurant company in terms of system units. YUM! has more than 37,000 restaurants in 117 countries and owns the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands. Construction has now started at the new; custom designed 4-floor Leed Certified building, located at 191 Creditview Road in Vaughan where YUM! will occupy 2 floors to accommodate their state of the art test kitchen and Restaurant Support Centre staff. Attending the groundbreaking ceremonies for YUM! Canada’s new corporate head office were Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua, Councillors Michael Di Biase and Tony Carella and YUM!’s president, Sabir Sami together with several members of his management team. Representing Condor Properties who will be responsible for constructing YUM!’s new building were company directors Nancy DeGasperis, Romeo DeGasperis and Sam Balsamo and several members of Condor’s leasing, financing, planning and construction teams. The project is a true collaboration between a private company (Condor Properties), a public company (YUM!) and Government (the City of Vaughan). According to Condor President Sam Balsamo, “Condor (is) proud of this project because it symbolizes and captures the very essence of what a multi-level partnership really means when private sector and government come together with a single vision and objective, to meet the client’s needs.” At the groundbreaking ceremony, Sam also thanked John Powell and Scott Cowie of Colliers International who facilitated the transaction between YUM! and Condor. YUM! expects to be occupying it’s new home by the fall of 2013.
