SEEING GREEN 022: Join the Climate Change conversation

Posted by on Sep 5, 2016

We all know it is getting hotter and there are consequences. The speed of change underway now is incomprehensible. Temperatures are rising faster than expected and glaciers and arctic sea ice is melting more rapidly than ever anticipated. We need to be talking about the reality of our times, the risks we face, the urgency for action. At 404 ppm carbon dioxide is the highest it has been for four million years and much of it will remain in the atmosphere for thousands of years. Humans evolved with other species on a planet with two polar ice caps. This will no longer be our reality. What we have begun is an unknown and unknowable future without the security of the climate stability of the past twelve thousand years, a stability that allowed agriculture and complex urban societies to develop. We need to be talking about new concepts of a world changing at inconceivable speed in a multitude of interacting arenas–greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere leading to global temperature increases, extreme weather, wildfires, changes to the earth’s biological climate zones, droughts and floods, loss of glaciers and melting permafrost, ocean acidification, spread of infectious diseases, out of sync ecosystems and loss of species. We need to be talking about humanity’s relationship to other species,...

IMMIGRATION ISSUES 022: Navigating the ins and outs of spousal sponsorship

Posted by on Sep 4, 2016

Love strikes when you least expect it, and often sparks fly between people of different nationalities. Sometimes a couple will meet when one of them is in Canada as a visitor, an international student, a worker, or even without legal status. Other times, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident will meet someone special while they themselves are abroad for the same reasons. If a couple wants to make a life together in Canada they must file a sponsorship application in one of three categories. The first category is for spouses who are legally married, the second category is for common-law spouses who are unmarried but have been living together in a marriage-like relationship for at least one year, and the third category is for conjugal partners who are unmarried and live in different countries due to circumstances beyond their control. The situation of conjugal partners is beyond the scope of this article, where we will be dealing with married and common-law spouses. There are two ways to file a sponsorship for a spouse: “overseas” where the processing is done at a visa office outside Canada or “in-Canada” where processing is done from within Canada. There are several factors for and against each option. The first consideration is the location of the sponsored spouse (the...

EY ADVOCATE 022: Rises in prices and population may be creating “house-less”generation in East York

Posted by on Sep 4, 2016

Have you ever wondered why the price of a single family detached home in East York and elsewhere in Toronto is going through the roof? I often wonder whether my children and grandchildren will ever be able to afford to buy a house. I know, however, that I could never have afforded to buy the house we live in today if I had to buy at the present prices. The real estate agents will tell us that the reason...

Top two 2015-16 Toronto scholars are both East York Collegiate students

Posted by on Aug 2, 2016

If members of the Toronto District School Board need any further evidence of the value of keeping East York Collegiate Institute open when they vote on the upcoming Pupil Accommodation Review report in September, an announcement in July that the board’s two top scholars both attend the school should certainly suffice.

EAST YORK ADVOCATE 021: When old Toronto owned property in East York

Posted by on Aug 2, 2016

These days we think of East York as a part of our megacity of Toronto but did you know that prior to amalgamation in 1998 the much smaller old city of Toronto actually owned parts of East York? One of those parts was Dentonia Park east of Dawes Road and just north of Danforth Avenue. The Dentonia Park of today was only a small portion of Walter Massey‘s original 240-acre Dentonia Park Farm. Named for Massey’s wife Susan, whose...
