BE A DONOR!!!

Scarborough is lagging behind in donating tissues and organs. About 24% of people in Ontario are registered to donate, and approximately 15% in Greater Toronto leaving Scarborough at 10%.

That’s not enough, Trillium Gift of Life Network CEO Ronnie Gavsie told Scarborough Community Council on Tuesday. Not in a province where 1,500 people are on the “most urgent” list for transplants and, every three days, one of them dies waiting.

Community Bus in KGO

A Scarborough councillor is accusing the TTC of slamming the door on a future community bus service (CBS) for his constituents.

Paul Ainslie said he’s been trying for almost two years to get a community bus route to serve residents in his Scarborough East ward who have mobility challenges, but don’t qualify for the door-to-door Wheel-Trans service.

Community buses, which look identical to the Wheel-Trans shuttles, make stops at medical centres, supermarkets and shopping plazas and can be flagged at any point along a route, making them popular with seniors in particular.

Six community bus routes currently operate hourly on weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. None of them are located in Scarborough.

Almost two years ago, Ainslie said he and residents met with a TTC consultant on mapping a potential CBS route, to service his and neighbouring Scarborough wards.

He said he is frustrated by a new TTC report that strongly recommends against any further expansion of the service, which he fears will bury his own request.

“They’ve already said point blank in the report they don’t want any more community bus routes,” said Ainslie this week. “We’re the largest city in Canada and we have five community bus routes. I think that speaks volumes about the mindset of the TTC.”

ParticipACTION

Families are urged to get their kids outside during the week of March 24-30. It’s suggested to get outside for at least 60 minutes a day.

The organization’s ‘Bring Back Play’ national campaign is encouraging parents to get their kids involved in physical activity, which is important to improve their physical and mental health.

According to ParticipACTION, the average Canadian child gets nearly eight hours of screentime – including TV, computers, cellphones and video games – every 24 hours, despite a majority saying that they would rather play with friends. The same goes for parents; 43 per cent choose to watch television or surf the Internet in their spare time.
