 Doors Open Toronto's 2016 theme 'Re-used, Re-visited and Revised' highlights the many lives of Toronto's buildings
 The 17th annual Doors Open Toronto presented by Great Gulf returns on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29. The event will offer free and rare access to more than 130 architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city. More than 30 of this year's buildings are participating for the first time.
 The Doors Open Toronto 2016 theme of "Re-used, Re-visited and Revised" explores the adaptive repurposing of buildings throughout Toronto's architectural history.
 For the first-time ever, Doors Open Toronto will feature a keynote speaker, acclaimed designer Karim Rashid. With more than 3,000 designs in production and more than 300 awards, Rashid is regarded as one of the most prolific designers of his generation. More details about this event will be announced in May.  
 Other exciting elements offered this year are the themed walking tours sponsored by the Carpenters' Union and activities at City Hall. The tours and the City Hall activities will delve into the stories, histories and rebirth of a wide variety of Toronto's neighbourhoods.
 The popular Open Insights speaker series returns, covering current topics in design, architecture and the revitalization of Toronto.
 Doors Open Toronto is produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with community partners.

 Ontario is making changes to the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program that will allow more than 170,000 seniors to become newly eligible for the low-income seniors program. As a result, they will save approximately $130 on average per year in out-of-pocket drug costs and almost half-a-million Ontario seniors will pay no deductible and only a co-payment of up to $2 per prescription.
 Starting August 1, 2016, the government proposes to increase the income thresholds to qualify for the low-income seniors benefit:
• from less than $16,018 to less than or equal to $19,300 for single seniors, and
from less than $24,175 to less than or equal to $32,300 for senior couples.
 These new thresholds are aligned with the Ontario Guaranteed Annual Income System and will be indexed to ensure they remain aligned in future benefit years. With these changes, Ontario seniors will continue to enjoy the lowest on average out-of-pocket drug costs of any seniors across the provinces in Canada.
  In addition to changes to
benefit low-income seniors, the 2016 Budget also included proposed changes to drug cost contributions by non-low income seniors. Over the past month, the Province has consulted with Ontarians on these proposed changes and received feedback from seniors and representative organizations. Based on this feedback, the government is pausing the planned increases to drug cost contributions from seniors who are not low-income. Beginning this year the government will continue to consult on the correct income thresholds for an improved Ontario Drug Benefit, with a view to creating a fair, sustainable system that remains among the most generous in Canada.
 Making drugs more affordable for low-income seniors is part of the government's plan to build a better Ontario through its Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care, which provides patients with faster access to the right care; better home and community care; the information they need to live healthy; and a health care system that is sustainable for generations to come.

Scarborough Communities are Unique!
The photo at the top of this page is of the Bluffs today, seen from the bottom of Brimley in what is known as Bluffers Park
They have a history of European occupation going back to the seventeen hundreds. Lowland Scots emigrated to this area after being pushed out of their farms in Scotland by the titled gentry. Some of their descendents still live here today.
The name “Scarborough Bluffs” was given to it by Elizabeth Graves Simcoe, wife of the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada,
John Graves Simcoe because it reminded her of Scarborough Bluffs in England.
The Bluffs are the only geologically scenic area in the greater Toronto area but are also a geologic wonder, visited by scientists from all over the world to study its exposed history of the planet.

 Another year older means another year wiser. West Scarborough Neigh-bourhood Community (WSNCC) is celebrating its 60th Anniversary. On Saturday June 4, 2016 between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., families and friends are welcomed to celebrate at the annual Byng Spring Fling.
 Former members, staff and volunteers will be brought together at Byng Park – 313 Pharmacy Ave. As part of the
anniversary celebration, guests will be welcomed to contribute to a specialized canvas provided by WSNCC. Music, food, games and a bazaar will be set up throughout the day for the community to enjoy.
 President of the Senior’s Club, Toby Parsons says, “I have been with the Seniors Club for 10 years now. But before that, I started working here while I was in high school from 1964 to 1969. Ever since then, I had a connection with (West Scarborough).”
 The Centre had been part of the West Scarborough community since 1956 when it was first named as the West Scarborough Boys Club. By 1976 the Centre officially became the West Scarborough Boys and Girls Club and established programs for adult and senior programs.
 
 WSNCC is a non-profit, charitable organization helping people of all ages, with 18 locations across Scarborough and East Toronto.
