Toronto rides new streetcars to its urban future: Hume

Filed under: marketing, technology — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 1:36 pm

At last passengers can feel good about being taken for a ride by the TTC.

The Toronto Transit Commission’s new streetcars went into service Sunday morning and though it’s early days, it seems the city’s love affair with the Red Rocket as about to get all warm and sticky again. Streetcars in Toronto aren’t just a means of getting around; they’re part of the city’s heritage, its self-image. In that most-overused word, streetcars are iconic. No representation of Toronto is complete without one.

So when the TTC introduces a new fleet, there’s interest from more than users. These articulated vehicles — five segments long — are the look of Toronto’s future. The muscular streamlined esthetic gives them a slightly retro feel reminiscent perhaps not only of Art Moderne but also of urban transit’s Golden Age.

Inside, however, these streetcars reflect contemporary concerns such as accessibility, transparency, comfort and convenience. Longer, lower, lighter and leaner, the new vehicles are designed to allow for maximum visibility. They don’t have windows so much entire sides made of glass. This will strengthen the connection between passengers and the landscape.

For those used to climbing up the equivalent of a stepladder to board the current streetcars, new lower floors are transformational. This is the key to total accessibility and will change how we use surface transit.

Another big move is the arrangement of seating into four-person pods, two seats facing two seats. GO riders will be familiar with the pattern, which may be why commuter trains tend to be more collegial than the TTC, where it’s every man — and pregnant woman — for themselves.

Given the problems the TTC already faces with seat hogs, passage blockers and space invaders; it’s inevitable that this new configuration will present serious challenges to some passengers. Now it’s possible for one person to block three seats just by sitting in the fourth.

Operators, on the other hand, have a cabin of their own. For those drivers who took a vow of silence before joining the TTC, the extra privacy will no doubt be welcome. And with four doors, getting on and off should theoretically be easier; but again, never underestimate the average TTC users’ capacity for confusion.

Fittingly, the inaugural streetcar left Spadina station jammed to the rafters. That meant between 250 and 280 people, most of them standing. The air conditioning was appreciated, especially on such a muggy day. And because of the see-through walls, you always knew where you were, always nice. The white interiors enhanced the sense of openness and brought some crispness to things.

In addition to moving the masses, the TTC’s new rolling stock must shift attitudes. Its ultimate success will depend on its ability to change the notion of streetcars as being just this side of the horse and buggy.

Seeing these beautiful behemoths rolling through Toronto might force us to reconsider the complaint heard over and over that streetcars are forever in the way. Once all 204 new vehicles have been deployed in four or five years, they will be the undisputed masters of the streets; it will be cars that will have to make way.

A smiling TTC CEO Andy Byford called Sunday’s launch “the start of a new era.” Given the chaotic state of transit and transit planning in Toronto, and the hostility to streetcars at the highest levels of City Hall; it was also a much-needed bit of good news.

Just when it seemed the future might never arrive in Toronto, it’s the TTC that leads the way.

Economic sanctions spare Western-tied Russian fund

Filed under: management, term — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 8:16 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) — Western business connections are complicating efforts to bring economic sanctions against executives and companies closely aligned with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle. A prime example: the Russian Direct Investment Fund, a $10 billion sovereign wealth fund that’s escaped sanctions in spite of international efforts to punish Russia for its incursions in Ukraine.

A sanctioned Russian bank funds the RDIF, and a top Putin aide serves on one of its board. The fund’s international advisory board, meanwhile, is stocked with blue-chip American and European private equity executives, among them Stephen Schwarzman of The Blackstone Group LP, Leon Black of Apollo Global Management LLC and David Bonderman of TPG Capital LP.

The chief executive of a French state-controlled investment company, Caisses de Depots, is listed as one of its supervisors — as is former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The fund has done deals with BlackRock Inc. and General Electric Co., which partnered with the fund to build small power plants for industrial users across Russia. JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s One Equity Partners joined an Illinois tire company to buy a manufacturer of agricultural and industrial tires. European investors took stakes in telecommunications firms, information technology consultants and health care companies. In total, more than $6 billion from blue-chip foreign companies have flowed in.

President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are considering new economic sanctions against Russia over its apparent invasion of Ukraine. There is no evidence that the Russian Direct Investment Fund would be a target, but the situation with the sanctions-free RDIF illustrates the Obama administration’s struggle to achieve conflicting goals — punishing Putin’s circle without damaging U.S. companies doing business in Russia.

“We can’t have a situation where a business entity is immune from (sanctions) designation because it does some good things and some bad things,” said Jimmy Gurule, a senior Treasury Department enforcement official in the Bush administration and law professor at Notre Dame University.

Obama said Thursday he expects U.S. and European allies to take additional steps to respond to the Russian military’s apparent invasion of Ukraine. “Capital is fleeing. Investors are increasingly staying out,” Obama said.

A Republican-backed bill in the Senate would extend sanctions to executives, companies and investment funds, including the $10 billion Russian fund, and penalize Americans who work with them, according to congressional staffers.

Within the Obama administration, Treasury lawyers and investigators have been consulting intelligence and law enforcement officials in recent weeks to identify targets for new sanctions, according to three federal officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the confidential discussions. The White House and Treasury Department declined to say whether the Russian fund might be a target.

Under presidential action, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has the authority to freeze a foreign target’s financial assets in the U.S. and block its transactions with Americans. The targets can be businesses or individuals and have included terrorists, criminals and state entities. The Treasury Department can also limit the effect of its sanctions, and some targeted Russian banks are restricted only from accessing U.S. capital markets, not blocked entirely.

Some Westerners have already cut ties with the Russian fund. Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, a longtime Obama political intimate who was listed on corporate documents as a fund adviser as recently as April, has now severed ties with the fund. Harvard Professor Josh Lerner stepped down from the fund’s supervisory board. And last week, references to Kurt Bjorklund, a leader of European investment firm Permira, quietly disappeared from the fund’s website.

Others, including all three American private equity executives, have stayed put. Bonderman appeared in photographs and on the attendee list in April at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, an annual event favored by Putin that the Obama administration urged many top American business leaders to skip.

Current and former board members either declined to comment or did not respond to phone calls and emails from the AP.

“Businesses are caught in the middle, because while they want to be loyal to the government, they have major investments here,” said Laura Brank, the head of the Russia practice at Dechert LLP, a major international law firm.

The Russian fund in May partnered with two unidentified international investors and Gazprombank, the sanctioned finance arm of Gazprom, the Russian-controlled energy conglomerate, to buy a liquefied gas terminal. The seller was OAO Sibur Holding, which is partially owned by Gennady Timchenko, a Russian billionaire on the U.S. sanctions list. Under the deal, as described by the Russian fund, Sibur sold the facility to the investors for $700 million — and simultaneously struck a deal to lease it back from them. The Russian Direct Investment Fund’s head, Kirill Dmitriev, told the Associated Press that Sibur has not been targeted by sanctions but otherwise declined to discuss fund investments.

A refugee judge who found it hard to believe that a domestic abuse victim from Botswana did nothing to get help “before allowing herself to be beaten some 100 times” rejected her claim for asylum based on her alleged lack of credibility.

Now those findings are at the centre of a legal challenge by Tshegofatso Kgang, a 42-year-old mother of three, whose attempt to have the decision quashed will be heard in Federal Court in October. Her lawyer alleges the judge’s findings were sexist, a case of blaming the victim.

“He made me feel guilt, that I did something wrong and I’m guilty of not getting help and coming here,” Kgang, a former registered nurse, said in an interview Thursday. “It’s intimidating when you answered their questions and they didn’t believe in what you had to tell them.”

Immigration and Refugee Board member Michael Sterlin wrote in his decision refusing Kgang’s claim that “The claimant made insufficient efforts to avail herself of the protection of her own state before coming to Canada.”

“If the claimant were truly beaten some 100 times in 10 months, then she would have reported her husband to the police, tried to take shelter, or do something to put herself out of harm’s way,” he said further.

“It is entirely possible that if the claimant had reported her husband to the police after the first beating, or after a few beatings, then he may have been constrained from beating her again.”

After numerous beatings, Kgang says, she did finally go to hospital and to police and finally moved into her mother’s home with her children. Her husband was never charged by local police.

Through the IRB, Sterlin — a senior paralegal for the Ontario Realty Corporation before his 2008 IRB appointment — declined to comment on the case, citing the board’s policy banning adjudicators from speaking to the media.

“As the matter you are enquiring about is currently before the Federal Court, it would not be appropriate for the IRB to comment on the case itself or on the issues which are before the Court,” said an IRB spokesperson.

Kgang had two daughters, now 19 and 18, from a previous relationship, when she married her alleged abuser, a telecommunications engineer, in 2000. The couple has a 13-year-old son.

Her husband, she alleged, became moody and physically abusive when he lost his job in May 2010. “He’d get drunk, pushed me, screamed at me, choking me, hitting me and kicking me,” said Kgang.

Not unlike many Canadian victims of domestic abuse, Kgang said she couldn’t explain why she continued to stay in an abusive relationship.

“He’d say he’s sorry for what he’d done, and I accepted it. I can’t explain why. I had three children. It’s not like I could just walk out from my home,” she said. “You go to the police and they ask you how you can be raped by your husband. You can’t talk about rape in a marriage.”

Kgang and her children later fled to her parents’ home. When her estranged husband stormed the house and threatened to kill her, she claimed, her mother told her to leave for Canada, which didn’t require visas for citizens of Botswana.

Sterlin challenged Kgang’s credibility because she had told the port of entry she had been “emotionally assaulted and raped” by her husband but, at the asylum hearing, she claimed “he physically assaulted as well as raped her.”

The refugee judge also questioned why Kgang’s three children were left with the alleged abuser and her mother did not take legal action to get them back. “This is further indication that the husband is not abusive as the claimant alleges,” Sterlin wrote.

Although Sterlin began his decision by citing the IRB’s gender guidelines, launched in 1993 to help members deal with gender-based persecution claims, Kgang’s lawyer, Aadil Mangalji, said Sterlin’s comments were sexist.

“The victim blaming is a huge problem. The idea that she allowed herself to be beaten up more than 100 times makes her feel the domestic violence was her fault,” said Mangalji, who will also argue that Kgang’s former counsel was negligent in representing the client.

In a reply to court, government lawyers said Sterlin had properly considered and applied the board’s gender guidelines.

“A proper application of the gender guidelines does not dictate a certain result with respect to credibility. It is entirely reasonable for the board to be sensitive to the female applicant’s particular circumstances as a woman but still find that the female applicant’s story is not credible,” they argued in their submission.

Mississauga couple has won two lottery houses in five years

Filed under: Finance, technology — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 9:40 pm

Dawn Krolikowski really doesn’t want you to hate her.

Why would you hate Dawn Krolikowski? She is in many ways quite a normal person: Mother of two. Mississauga resident. Commuter. City of Toronto employee. Really very nice once you get to know her.

But she is also unbelievably, annoyingly lucky. In the past five years, Dawn and her husband Jerzy (he goes by Jerry) have won the Princess Margaret Lottery not once, but twice, earning them — if earning is the word — not one, but two large houses, which they have sold for a combined $2.6 million.

It’s the first time anyone has won two houses in the hospital’s lotteries, they say. “That hasn’t happened in our history,” said Christine Lasky, vice-president of strategic initiatives at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

Dawn’s plan for dealing with the stigma of her unprecedented luck? “You just have to be very humble and hope people don’t hate your guts.”

It’s worth noting that neither of the Krolikowskis are bankers or shipping heirs or oil magnates. They are, in fact, deeply normal. Dawn is 36 and does administrative support for the city’s Transportation Services division; Jerry is 38 and owns a business retrofitting buildings for fire resistance. They live in Mississauga with their two kids, ages 9 and 12, and a large dog, Boomer, a mix of Rhodesian ridgeback, beagle and Lab.

Nor, until recently, were the Krolikowskis particularly lucky. Dawn had been to Vegas three times and always came away empty-handed. “I never win — ever,” she said. “Nothing. I’m not necessarily very lucky in anything else but this one thing.”

The first Krolikowski windfall came in 2009, during the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Welcome Home Sweepstakes. Dawn bought three out of 267,000 tickets, but won the grand prize: a mansion in Oakville listed at $3,560,000.

Her reaction at the time: “Holy moly.” Well, or something like that.

“The call was on the air — I think they had to bleep it out,” she said.

She and Jerry sold the house the following year for about $2 million (about $1.2 million in cash, plus a parcel of land and a bungalow in Oakville worth around $800,000).

For a while, they lived large.

“We tipped really well at all the restaurants we went to,” Dawn remembers. They also bought a cottage in Muskoka, went on a Caribbean cruise with friends, sprinkled around a few cash gifts, and did some backyard landscaping personal loan for poor credit.

As penance for their sinfully good luck, they even sold off some of the show home furniture and donated the proceeds — about $2,000 — to Princess Margaret. (Still freighted down with knickknacks, Dawn is desperate to offload some. “Need a vase?” she said. “I got a vase.”)

Before long, they settled down and invested the rest. “I wanted to have some fun with it, but the hubby’s a numbers man,” Dawn said. “I didn’t buy an Escalade or anything like that. We’re not even 40 yet, so we gotta make it last.” (Jerry declined to comment.)

More importantly, she noted, “You don’t want to piss off the karma gods.”

In that, they succeeded.

Cut to May 2014. Dawn is sitting at her desk in an office building near Finch Ave. W. and Weston Rd. The phone rings. Guess who?

This time the prize was a house in Mississauga worth $668,000 and an Audi Q5. (The contest was the Home Lottery.)

Her first thought: “You’re joking, right?”

For the second time in five years, Dawn left work early to begin shouldering an enviable burden. This time, she and Jerry are selling the house for $625,000 (it’s closing this week) and taking the cash equivalent for the car (listed at $38,037).

Conspiracy theorists may note with interest that the second time she entered the lottery, she went by “Dawne” — with an “e.” But Dawne is her legal name. She was getting Dwayne a lot, so she started going by the shorter version in her everyday life. That created some technical issues when claiming her first prize, so she reverted to her birth name this time around.

That will be cold comfort to the thousands of hard-luck gamblers who haven’t won the lottery once, let alone twice. They just might find themselves begrudging her success ever so slightly.

Dawn knows this, and is paying the habitual price of good fortune: seeing envy in every smile. Even those of her colleagues.

“They all seem happy for me,” she said. “But you never know.”

Global stocks lower, US economic data awaited

Filed under: Uncategorized, technology — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 6:40 am

BEIJING (AP) — Global stocks were mostly lower Tuesday as investors digested signals from the Jackson Hole meeting of central bankers and looked ahead to data expected to show an improving U.S. economy.

KEEPING SCORE: In morning trading, France’s CAC-40 was off 0.1 percent at 4,338.03 and Germany’s DAX was down 0.4 percent at 9,473.80. Britain’s FTSE 100 added 0.3 percent to 6,793 after being closed Monday for a public holiday. Futures for the Dow Jones industrial average and the broader Standard & Poor’s 500 were little changed. On Monday, the S&P briefly rose past the 2,000-point mark and closed at a second record high in a week.

DOLLAR BOOST: The U.S. dollar has risen against major currencies since Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen’s speech to the Jackson Hole, Wyoming conference Friday was seized upon by traders as suggesting the Fed is inching toward interest rate hikes because of faster-than-expected improvement in employment. The dollar’s strength was reinforced by comments from Japanese and European central bankers that suggested their economies will remain on life-support for longer than the U.S.

ASIA’S DAY: China’s Shanghai Composite Index declined 1 percent to 2,207.11 while Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 shed 0.6 percent to 15,521.22. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng declined 0.4 percent to 25,074.50 and India’s Sensex was off 0.4 percent at 26,340.20. Singapore and Jakarta declined while Seoul and Sydney gained.

U.S. OUTLOOK: Investors looked ahead to Tuesday’s data on durable goods orders, followed by economic growth on Thursday. Durable goods spending is expected to rise as much as 18 percent over the previous month, driven by a surge in aircraft sales by Boeing Co. That could help to shore up sentiment after new home sales fell 2.4 percent last month, suggesting a construction recovery was struggling.

ANALYST TAKE: “We expect this week’s U.S. growth numbers to be mixed but positive,” said Jim O’Sullivan of High Frequency Economics in a report.

UKRAINE TENSIONS: The presidents of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus were due to meet Tuesday in Minsk, Belarus, in a possible step toward trying to reach a negotiated end to unrest in Ukraine. Tension over an insurgency by pro-Russian forces has roiled energy markets, which worried about the impact of possible Western sanctions on Russian oil exports.

ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude for October delivery was up 16 cents to $93.51 in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract declined 30 cents on Monday to close at $93.35.

CURRENCIES: Major currencies stabilized after losing ground to the dollar. The euro rose to $1.3204 from the previous session’s $1.3181. The dollar declined to 103.91 yen from Monday’s close of 104.09 yen.

Imprisoned former Oshawa councillor attempts to be re-elected

Filed under: Business, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 8:32 am

Former Oshawa city councillor Robert Lutczyk is planning a return to the ballot in this fall’s municipal election from his cell at the Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay, Ontario, where he is currently awaiting trial for allegedly kidnapping the city solicitor nearly two years ago.

“He did attempt to file (nomination papers for a council seat) by an agent on Wednesday and at that time the paperwork was incomplete so we did not accept the submission of the nomination paper,” Jason McWilliam, the manager of records information at the City of Oshawa told the Star Friday.

Lutczyk is facing accusations he kidnapped city solicitor David Potts at gunpoint after a council meeting in the fall of 2012. The alleged kidnapping prompted a standoff of more than 24 hours, with police at an industrial building where, they allege, Lutczyk had explosives. Potts escaped unharmed; Lutczyk surrendered.

The former councillor, who most recently served from 2006 to 2010, has been incarcerated since October 2012. He was denied bail on three separate occasions since then.

As long as Lutczyk is eligible to vote, he can be a candidate, said McWilliam, but as of Friday the City of Oshawa hadn’t received enough documentation to accept the nomination paper. They still need photo identification to confirm Lutczyk is properly qualified to vote and a signed letter from the candidate appointing an individual to act as an agent on his behalf.

McWilliam said he did not know who acted as Lutczyk’s agent, a rare occurrence in Oshawa.

“I would suggest in 95 or 99 per cent of cases here at the City of Oshawa candidates file on their own behalf but it’s certainly permissible under the act to file by an agent.”

If Lutczyk provides sufficient paperwork, even while in prison, the city will accept the nomination paper and either certify or reject that paper on nomination day, which is Sept. 12, McWilliam said.

If Lutczyk’s paperwork is complete, it will likely be certified.

“Under our policies and procedures, everything that we’ve requested of every candidate is what we require to determine whether an individual is qualified to run or not,”McWilliam said.

McWilliam has not received any direct complaints about Lutczyk’s attempted nomination since Wednesday and is not aware of any previous instance where the City of Oshawa has refused a candidate, provided they have provided all the required information.

John Mascarin, a municipal lawyer at Aird and Berlis, said the Municipal Elections Act and the Municipal Act allow Lutczyk to run.

Under the Municipal Elections Act, a person is eligible to vote if he or she resides in the municipality, is a Canadian citizen and is at least 18 years old. Corporations, a person acting as an executor or trustee and people serving sentences in jail are prohibited from voting under the act.

Any eligible voter can run for office as long as they reside in the municipality, own a property in the area where they run or are the spouse of a resident or property owner, according to the Municipal Act.

“Right now he’s not serving a sentence of imprisonment, so therefore it looks like he does meet the eligibility or the qualifications to be an elector,” Mascarin said. “Technically he’s allowed to run, he’s allowed to be elected, and he might even be entitled to hold office, which is really bizarre. I don’t think that was the intent (of the legislation.)”

If Lutczyk is voted in, his seat can be declared vacant if he doesn’t swear an oath of office by a specific date, or if he’s absent from meetings of council for three successive months without being authorized by a resolution of council.

At that time, Mascarin said, council can then either appoint something or run a byelection.

“If they run a byelection, his trial hasn’t come up and he hasn’t been sentenced then I think he’s eligible to be elected back in on a byelection,” Mascarin said.

Stocks Retreat While Dollar Rises on Ukraine Tension - Bloomberg

Filed under: Homes, legal — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 5:36 pm

U.S. and European shares fell, paring weekly gains, as geopolitical tensions escalated and investors weighed comments from central bank leaders for clues to monetary policy. The dollar reached an 11-month high versus the euro while gold snapped a five-day losing streak.

The S&P 500 (SPX) dropped 0.2 percent to 1,988.4 at 4 p.m. in New York after yesterday closing at an all-time high. The benchmark index rallied 1.7 percent this week, the most since April, amid bets the Federal Reserve will continue stimulating the economy even as growth strengthens. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell 0.2 percent, trimming its best weekly gain since February. The dollar gained against most major peers.

Bike lanes closed on eastbound Bloor Viaduct

Filed under: Business, technology — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 7:28 am

Cyclists found the eastbound bike lane on the Prince Edward Viaduct blocked by barriers Tuesday evening, forcing them to merge with vehicular traffic on the busy route.

The lane was still closed Wednesday morning, when the city said on its Toronto Cycling Twitter feed that a contractor had improperly closed the lane and a fix was in the works.

But a construction notice dated July 4 noted the bike lane would be closed as part of ongoing repairs on the bridge substructure and deck drainage to take place over the next year.

The bike lane closure is part of work to patch Bell Canada manhole covers on the bridge, said local councillor Mary Fragedakis.

“They haven’t given a time frame of how long that’s going to take,” she said.

Signs were posted Tuesday at the eastbound entrance to the bridge, warning “bike lane closed ahead” and “motorists and cyclists share the road.”

Arcady Genkin bikes daily over the Prince Edward Viaduct, which connects Bloor St. E. and Danforth Ave. over the Don River, between his job at the University of Toronto and his home in Riverdale best payday advance.

“Hopefully they’re going to fix it. I hope they’re going to punish the contractor who did this because they endangered the lives of many people,” Genkin said, adding he’s glad he didn’t have his kids in the bike trailer.

Arcady chose to cycle in the middle of the car lane, which is legal. Others were trying to hug the concrete barrier, leaving little room between them and the fast-moving cars, he said.

The barriers blocking the bike lane were spread out in five sections, meaning cyclists could choose to rejoin the bike lane for a few metres and then merge again with traffic, something Genkin said only added to the danger.

“The moment of merging with the car lane is the most dangerous thing. You need to be really aware and the motorist needs to be really aware of the cyclist doing this,” he said.

The closest detours are the Gerrard St. bridge and a pedestrian bridge at Riverdale Park.

Toronto police identify victim of Monday

Filed under: Loans, news — Tags: , , , — Gogo @ 2:08 pm

Toronto Police have identified Monday evening’s homicide victim as 24-year-old Olatoyebi Waheed of Toronto.

EMS was called to the area of Jane St. and Eglinton Ave. W. around 6:45 p.m. to what appeared to be a targeted drive-by shooting on a high traffic North York street.

Rescuers discovered two males, ages 23 and 24, with gunshot wounds. Waheed was without vital signs; the surviving victim was rushed to the hospital and is expected to survive. His name has not yet been released.

Waheed was driving south with the other victim in a Nissan hatchback. He stopped at a light when a lone gunman in another vehicle approached them from the rear of their car and fired approximately six shots into the back of the vehicle, Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga told reporters on Monday night.

The post-mortem examination confirmed the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest. Waheed’s death marks Toronto’s 26th homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7400, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
