Robert Borden School
An Opportunity

Young Kyrie attended the meeting with his mother but wonders if there’ll be a school for him when he grows up.
by Derek Pinder
Robert Borden, the eighth Prime Minister of Canada, had three schools named after him. One of them is the Sir Robert L. Borden Business and Technical Institute, located in West Hill.

It is a matter of history that this school will close in June; the 50th anniversary of its opening. What is to become of the 143,000 square foot building and its 12-acre site? A public consultation meeting was held on May 11th to address this question. Some 50 people attended and they were asked to consider and answer three questions:

What should the Toronto District Schoolboard (TDSB) take into consideration on whether to sell the site?
Under what conditions could you support the sale of the site?
Can you think of any alternatives to selling the site that would allow the TDSB to meet its capital needs and other pressures?

The audience response was enthusiastic and, although their answers did not always fit neatly with the questions, the suggestions that had the most support were:

A priority re-use of the facility should be social infrastructure such as senior citizens, youth, daycare, adult education, a medical centre including a dialysis unit and religious groups.
It should remain as a centre for trades training.
The site should be used for single family homes; it should not be used for infill, high rises or public housing.
The playing fields should remain.
There must be no increase in neighbourhood traffic.

Mitzie Hunter (MPP, Scarborough-Guildwood) took the microphone and undertook to promote the suggested dialysis unit.

The next step is for the school board to present a report with recommendations on June 15th. Members of the public may share their thoughts in person or in writing. To do so, they should contact Linda Mendonca at linda.mendonca@tdsb.on.ca by 4:00pm on June 13th.
To have a facility such as the Robert Borden school become available in an urban environment is uncommon. It is commendable that citizens were able to voice their opinions, encouraging that so many took the opportunity to do so and we look forward to the continuing redevelopment of the property in consultation with the West Hill community.
Seven People Seeking
Liberal Nomination in
Scarborough Rouge River
The Scarborough—Rouge River Provincial Liberal Riding Association announced today that seven people have submitted formal nomination papers for the upcoming by-election. The nomination meeting has been set for Sunday, June 5th, 2016. To be eligible to vote at the nomination, riding residents must be members in good standing of the Scarborough—Rouge River Provincial Liberal Association by May 20, 2016 at 5:00 pm.
 
“We are excited that there is such great interest in this open, fair and transparent nomination process,” said Ryan Singh, President, Scarborough—Rouge River Provincial Liberal Association. “This is very diverse group of individuals, from various walks of life, who truly do represent the diversity in Scarborough-Rouge River. It is great to see so much interest by individuals who want to run for the Ontario Liberal Party under the leadership of Premier Kathleen Wynne. We are confident that this race will produce a great candidate who will be elected as the next Liberal MPP in the upcoming by-election.

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 before the last ice age. The only place in the world to do so.

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

The Bluffs area has 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.
