4WelcomeWelcomeWelcomelcomecomeWelcomelWelcomeWlwelcWomeellwelcomewelcomecomeIs it holiday season already? It seems like just yesterday we said hello to 2011 and began arranging the communitycoverage for a new year of COLLECTIONS. Time does fly when you're having fun, and we definitely had fun. Whetherit was chatting with icons like David Mirvish and Jann Arden, cooking with masters like Jamie Kennedy, Chris McDonaldand Michael Stadtländer, or designing with the likes of Brian Gluckstein, Bryon Patton, Theresa Casey and Mark Hartley,we were treated to insight and advice from our city's leading lights. It certainly helped make 2011 a very memorable year.We'd like to thank you for your support this past year. Whether you are one of our advertising partners, one of our loyalreaders, or a client with Harvey Kalles Real Estate, you have been a big part of our success this year. Without you, wecould not continue to shine a light on the many cultural centres, groups and personalities working to make Toronto sucha dynamic city. We'd also like to say a special thanks to ParticipACTION. Canada's champion of physical activity hasbeen a featured guest this past year, contributing a story in each issue exploring seasonal family fitness. We admiretheir commitment to improving the lives of those within our community, and are proud to have helped share theirmessage. Looking forward, we've got a tremendous issue for you.For starters, we're joined by business tycoon Kevin O'Leary. The self-titled "Merchant of Truth" is well-known as the bluntone on CBC's runaway hit Dragons' Den, to put it mildly. Of course, he plays a similar role with equal relish on the LangO'Leary Exchangeand ABC's Shark Tank. This fall, he released his bestselling memoir The Cold Hard Truth, and his fundscompany, O'Leary Funds, topped $1.5-billion in assets. He discusses investing, entrepreneurship and family values.Celebrity Chef Massimo Capra is also here to spice up our holiday meals. Massimo hails from Cremona, known as theItalian breadbasket. Located smack in the middle of cities with renowned food traditions, Massimo infuses these customsinto his cooking, and he's sharing some of that experience with us. So if you're tired of turkey, or seek a new approachto appetizers, read on. Massimo has taken time from a hectic schedule that includes filming a new show and promotinghis book 3 Chefs, to reintroduce you to the holiday meal.Interior designer Shelley Kirsch has also joined our growing list of design contributors. Shelley is a household name incommunities such as Forest Hill, and she's here to tackle condo design. As our population ages, there's increasingdemand for luxury condo suites. Finding a great suite is not so difficult, however personalizing that space is anotherstory. Shelley's here to walk us through a condo design project, offering ideas on how to infuse your own designsensibilities into your new space.Of course, there lots more in store, but before you continue, we want to wish you a very happy, healthy holiday season.We look forward to seeing you in 2012!Harvey KallesChairman & C.E.O.
