Scarborough brothers killed in hit-run
Students were walking on Waterloo street; police might treat case as homicide
By Astrid POEI and Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporters
Waterloo -- Police are considering laying homicide charges against the hit-and-run driver who killed two Scarborough brothers on an industrial street near the University of Waterloo.
Soumiyan, 19, and Chandrasegar (Chandru) NAGULASIGAMANY, 21, were pronounced dead in hospital after being run down early Friday morning; a 20-year-old Waterloo man who was walking with them has been released from hospital.
Autopsy results are expected from the coroner's office in Hamilton tomorrow. A police spokesman said those results could push investigators to treat the case as a homicide rather than an accident.
"It's very unusual," said Olaf HEINZEL, of the Waterloo Regional Police Service. "As a result of the circumstances, there's a team, including traffic and forensic officers and detectives from the homicide branch.
"It could potentially go to a homicide investigation if the information were to support it."
As police traffic experts studied the dead-end industrial street where the brothers were killed, Friends and family spoke of their enormous sense of loss and disbelief.
Their uncle, Path SITHAMPARANATHAN, said that Chandrasegar, a University of Waterloo student, felt a little homesick and invited his younger brother, who attended Centennial College in Scarborough, to visit.
"He always said that he missed his brother," SITHAMPARANATHAN said. "They were very good boys."
Abiraa BALENDRAN, 19, met Chandrasegar at the University of Waterloo Tamil Students' Association, where he was president, and said the young man will be remembered fondly by fellow students.
"He was so determined to fulfill his duties as president," she said. "We're in shock, in denial, we're all grieving."
BALENDRAN said she was struck by the love the brothers had for each other.
A makeshift memorial at their Scarborough high-rise apartment building reads, "We lost two brothers, death could not do them apart, our loss, heaven's gain."
"They were best Friends, pretty much. Chandru always looked out for his brother," she said.
"There's so much respect for him," she added. "He would never let anyone walk home alone if we were in a night class. If we were sick, he would call us up and ask if we needed medicine."
She said Chandrasegar had been a track-and-field athlete but was known by Friends as someone who was "all about community involvement."
"We are planning to raise money for their funeral, we're just doing whatever we can to help the family and helping with the funeral costs. (It) may not be a lot, but it is something."
Police said they were called to a disturbance on Dearborn Place at about 1 a.m. on Friday. HEINZEL of Waterloo Region police downplayed reports that they might have died as a result of an argument that began at the nearby Revolution Night Club on Marsland Dr.
"There is no information to specifically suggest where they were before this occurred and there are other commercial establishments nearby, so we are not pointing to one specific area," HEINZEL said.
Officers were on the scene yesterday taking measurements to prepare a model to reconstruct the hit-and-run scene.

Arthur TOWNEND, Architect (1924-2005)
Sudbury practitioner's designs included the stunning Revenue Canada Taxation Data Centre and brought the city into the 21st century
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, September 9, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Not long after Arthur TOWNEND had designed and erected the first, flat-roofed house in Sudbury, Ontario in 1953, his son Gordon came home from school a little perplexed after his teacher had asked him to produce a drawing of their family home.
Gordon asked his father why he wanted a flat-roofed house erected and his father replied, "So Santa Claus and his reindeer can land safely with their sleigh on Christmas Eve." Whether it was flat roofs or other projects, Arthur TOWNEND's work as an architect was unique, contemporary and modern -- all characteristics that arose from his empathy for the famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Thanks to Mr. TOWNEND, the stereotype image of Sudbury as a depressing, rough, transient, mining town built on unforgiving Cambrian Shield rock was dramatically swept aside. His imaginative approach to architecture changed the cityscape, whether it was the Civic Square municipal government office project, the huge Revenue Canada Taxation Data Centre, the original Laurentian Hospital, or St. Andrew's Place (a combined United Church and senior citizens' complex). He also designed hospitals in the Ontario communities of Sault Ste. Marie, Smooth Rock Falls and Thunder Bay, and fashioned a nautical-themed look with a multi-curved roof for the Canadian Coast Guard building in Parry Sound, Ontario
He is also responsible for 17 rather spiffy houses, most of them built in the tony Ramsay Lake section of the city. They are desirable, prized and elegant properties. "Anything designed by Arthur is a very classical home, compared to the modern bungalows." said Blaine NICHOLLS, one of Mr. TOWNEND's former partners.
"Arthur took Sudbury into the 21st century," said Janna Ramsay BEST, who is an acknowledged TOWNEND expert. "It's a mining town that has become a sophisticated regional capital and a Northern Ontario hub for education, health and government, and Arthur played a big part in that.
"Sudburians were very accepting of Arthur's cosmopolitan vision which brought pleasing contemporary architecture to Sudbury that was synonymous with progress," said Ms. BEST, who, as an M.A. student at Laurentian University, wrote a 160-page thesis titled The Architectural Imagination of S. Arthur TOWNEND. "He helped bring the latest styles and techniques to a city on the verge of change and expansion."
Sidney Arthur TOWNEND was born under a table in Banes, Cuba, during a hurricane. He spent his first three years on the Caribbean island where his parents operated United Food Company. Later, his parents moved to Union Hill, Jamaica, where he was raised on a family-owned plantation that employed 150 workers.
He left home as a young man to attend McGill University in Montreal where he first studied engineering and then switched to architecture. In the fall of 1942, he answered a wartime call for students to help the farmers of Western Canada bring in that year's harvest. He was placed on a squalid farm near Regina where he soon came down with polio. He spent a month in hospital in Regina until McGill officials arranged for him to be transported back to Montreal. Most of the next year was spent recuperating in Jamaica and he did not return to McGill until the fall of 1943.
Mr. TOWNEND graduated in 1948 and found a job with the Sudbury architect Louis FABBRO, who, three years before, had given him a summer internship. He fell in love with Sudbury and the North, resisting the pleas of family and Friends who tried to persuade him to return to Jamaica. He also fell in love with a girl. Soon after joining Mr. FABBRO, he and a draftsman from the firm were riding a bus when they noticed a pretty young lady standing on the sidewalk. "I'm going to marry that girl," Mr. TOWNEND told the draftsman.
Sure enough, he did. After meeting Evelyn SHEAHAN several days later at a dance, he proposed on their first date.
Meanwhile, building projects piled up at the firm. Mr. FABBRO was one of the few Sudbury architects to receive contracts during a time when most of the new buildings in town were designed by big-city firms that sent plans up North without studying the sites or understanding the climate and environment of Northeastern Ontario.
After a number of years in partnership with Mr. FABBRO, Mr. TOWNEND broke away to freelance. As a result of intuition, aggressiveness and the pressing demands of a growing family, he landed a job in 1964 to design the new Laurentian Hospital.
"It was risky for Arthur to leave Mr. FABBRO because he had eight mouths to feed so he was very happy to get the hospital project," Evelyn TOWNEND said.
It was also the beginning of a partnership involving Mr. TOWNEND, John STEFURA, Corky BALESHTA and Mr. NICHOLLS.
"Laurentian Hospital is very modern-looking considering it's over 30 years old," Mr. NICHOLLS said. "Hospitals are very complex inside, especially from a functional perspective... not just for staff, but visitors. Arthur was able to do something great with it. It was supposed to be a whitish colour on the outside but the hospital people wanted to save $50,000 so it became a brown colour."
The Civic Square building (now called Tom Davies Square) also boasted a distinct TOWNEND flavour. It wasn't a stock approach to a government building. Instead, Mr. TOWNEND designed a four-level building and all the levels open to a common public space and atrium.
"Arthur broke away from the typical departmentalized approach to an office building," Mr. NICHOLLS said.
He applied the same approach in the early 1970s when he designed the federal taxation centre, the place where thousands of Canadians send their tax returns. Once the site of Sudbury Stadium, which housed several baseball fields, the taxation centre was designed to open up two main levels to an open atrium space that doubled as a dining area. He designed it in such a way as to produce natural light into a lobby area, making it attractive for staff and visitors. To blend buildings in harmony with nature, he gave the exterior a light-coloured skin of pre-cast cement.
"Arthur looked at the site to see how the site would do for the building not what the building would do for the site," Mr. STEFURA said.
In 1986, Mr. TOWNEND's firm obtained the contract for the Northeastern Ontario Regional Cancer Centre (located at Laurentian Hospital) and he retired two years later.
Over the years, he won two national design awards but chose not to write about his projects. He acknowledged that while many of his fellow architects were very good at writing about architecture, he chose not to do it himself. "I'd rather the buildings speak for themselves," he said.
Sidney Arthur TOWNEND was born in Banes, Cuba on November 8, 1924. He died in Sudbury, Ontario on July 9, 2005 after several years of frail health. He is survived by his wife Evelyn and children Gordon, Arthur, Deborah, Mary, Barbara, John and Jane.

Pam passed away peacefully at home early Saturday morning. Pam was the great friend of too many to mention and all were struck by her beauty, kindness and humour. She was the funny, often cheeky daughter of Gil and Ethel, the younger sister and conscripted goaltender of brothers Geoff and Chris and trusted buddy of her cousin Samantha. She was the wonderful, loving mother of Alex and Samantha and the best thing that ever happened to husband Paul. Pam fought a long and hard battle with a rare form of cancer. We were all filled with admiration and awe at her courage, her toughness and endurance. Time and time again she conducted herself with great dignity and grace and managed to find humour in most of it. There are too many to thank for too much. Thank you all. A short service will be held on Tuesday afternoon for Friends and family. When available, details will be found at www.pamupdate.com and condolence messages may be sent to pamupdate@shaw.ca In lieu of flowers, donations to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation in Pam's name can be made at www.bccancer.bc.ca/don.
