Downtown shooting leaves 2 dead
Mayor calls Prime Minister's Office over growing problem of gun smuggling from United States
By Unnati GANDHI, Tuesday, August 9, 2005, Page A8
Homicide investigators combed through Toronto's latest crime scene yesterday, still finding shell casings hours after a downtown shooting left two people dead and sent one to hospital during another weekend of gun violence.
At the intersection of Maitland Place and Homewood Avenue, police forensic officers placed seven pylons on a patch of grass indicating new evidence by a blood-soaked white jersey with flies hovering over it.
One investigator found a shell casing in a gutter by the jersey and took it away for testing, while others analyzed a bullet hole in the side wall of a house next to the crime scene.
Just before 4 a.m. yesterday, gunfire erupted near the popular Phoenix nightclub on Sherbourne Street, where police found 19-year-old Ali Mohamud ALI, the city's 41st homicide victim, shot in the head and a 20-year-old man with non-life-threatening injuries.
Minutes later, a police cruiser was flagged down at nearby Jarvis and Bloor Streets. Inside a car was 23-year-old Loyan Mohammed AHMED suffering from multiple gunshots. He died later in hospital.
While certain neighbourhoods in Toronto have been the scene of more than 20 shootings in the past two weeks, resulting in six homicides, Mayor David MILLER maintained that the increased gun violence in the city is an anomaly.
"What is happening with these shootings is not Toronto," he told a news-media briefing yesterday afternoon, which Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair also attended.
"And Torontonians are not going to tolerate a city where guns are used to settle disputes between people."
While mayor and the chief said steps are being taken to prevent more gang-related violence, there have been no arrests in the three most recent slayings.
Efforts such as redeploying about 50 uniformed police officers to the northwest corner of the city since last Thursday has left Chief Blair looking to fill gaps in other neighbourhoods after yesterday's incidents.
"We also want to assure those in our most vulnerable communities that officers will be redeployed from across the city and from across the service, without depleting resources in all of our neighbourhoods because public safety in all of our neighbourhoods of Toronto is important," he said.
"We are finding ways within our organization to move officers in uniform into these neighbourhoods."
Chief Blair reported that police have seized 2,170 guns since the beginning of the year. Half of the guns used in crimes in the city had been smuggled from the United States, underscoring an issue Mr. MILLER brought up during a spate of violence last week that saw one person killed and five wounded by gunfire, including a four-year-old boy.
"There's no question that there are more guns being used in crimes and it's a serious issue," Mr. MILLER said yesterday, adding that he had spoken to the Prime Minister Paul Martin's office yesterday.
"The Prime Minister's Office assured me that they're already working to try to deal with the issue of gun smuggling."
On Sunday night, two men aged 27 and 17 were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after what police said may have been a drive-by-shooting in the Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East area.
On Friday night, 27-year-old Melbourne WHITTICK was shot and killed in the city's northeast while waiting for a bus on Victoria Park Avenue. He had become involved in an altercation with two men and died of a single shot to the abdomen.
"We have seen that there's a significant increase in the number of homicides that have taken place in the city as a result of firearm use and we're also seeing a great deal of that increase in that much of that violence is taking place in very public places," Chief Blair said.
He stressed that in these cases, the public's help is still what is going to catch the offenders, citing a fourfold increase in the number of calls to Crime Stoppers in the past week.
"We have received a record number of calls to Crime Stoppers and I think that reflects the concerns that the community and the citizens of Toronto have about the violence we have experienced."
Near the Maitland-Homewood crime scene yesterday, with the beeping of a police metal detector in the background, area resident Joanne BRIGDEN said violence was bound to have affected her neighbourhood sooner or later and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
"It was a matter of time before our area was hit," said Ms. BRIGDEN, whose house backs onto the Phoenix nightclub.
But the gun violence of the past few weeks is not scaring her, she added.
"Maybe there's a little increase in crime, but unless you assign a cop to every criminal," it's not going to stop any time soon, she said.

Friends bid activist farewell
Hundreds jam memorial service
'Hug this tree, for me. Love, Bob'
By Emily CHUNG, Staff Reporter
The Great Hall at the University of Toronto's Hart House was jammed yesterday with hundreds of people inspired by Bob HUNTER's conviction that one person can make a difference in the world.
The event was a memorial service for HUNTER, who died May 2 of prostate cancer but lived for 63 years before that as a journalist and world-renowned environmentalist who co-founded Greenpeace.
The service was attended by all ages. Some were pierced and dyed, others dressed neatly in black. Some wore expensive jewellery, some toted bike helmets.
"There's more trouble in this room than I've ever seen in one place," said HUNTER's friend Gord PERKS.
Trouble like Katrina MILLER of the Toronto Environmental Alliance, one of the many activists whose causes HUNTER publicized during his 15 years as an environment reporter with Citytv.
HUNTER awarded her a title for her work getting pesticides banned in Toronto that she wears proudly.
"There's something very special about Bob HUNTER calling you a Damn Fine Activist," MILLER said.
And there were dozens of fans like Bonnie and Kerre BRIGGS, long-time activists (mostly anti-poverty these days) who admired HUNTER but never met him.
"The Wales and the seals are really going to miss Bob," Bonnie said.
Kerre recalls that as a "schlubby, long-haired" 14-year-old, he started a petition to protest nuclear testing in Alaska the same week HUNTER co-founded Greenpeace. At the time, environmentalism was "a hippie thing of no great consequence," Kerre said, but HUNTER changed that. "He is my role model. He was my inspiration."
In the official program, letters were read from Prime Minister Paul MARTIN, environmentalist David SUZUKI and Toronto Mayor David MILLER. Friends and family, from HUNTER's wife Bobbi and Citytv boss Moses ZNAIMER to Premier Dalton McGUINTY and fellow activist Paul WATSON, shared memories in their eulogies that drew both laughter and tears.
As they followed a bagpiper's "Amazing Grace" out of the hall, people cradled tiny spruce saplings that had been laid out on the forest-green tablecloths for Friends to take home and plant. To each tree was attached a note that read, "Embrace your Friends, Love your family, Celebrate all life, And hug this tree, for me. Love, Bob."
Outside the doors, many paid tribute to HUNTER by continuing his work. A table solicited donations for a memorial environmental studies scholarship at the University of Toronto.
Greenpeace activists took the photos and signatures of supporters for a "virtual march" against whaling in Korea.
WATSON told the crowd that an activists' ship fuelled by alternative energy is getting ready to launch.
"The ship will be called the Robert Lorne Hunter," he said. "Bob will be going back to sea."

Dead cyclist 'came a long way in life'
Clarence BRIGHAM, 44, of Windsor died of hypothermia.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
A cyclist who died of hypothermia in a farm field near Wheatley was remembered yesterday as a kind man generous with his time. Clarence BRIGHAM of Windsor had been a maintenance worker at Brentwood Recovery House, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre, for about five years, said friend and co-worker Ken DURETTE.
"He was a bit of a loner, but he came a long way in his life," he said yesterday.
BRIGHAM, who loved to ride his bicycle, was quick to help when needed, DURETTE said.
He often helped kids learn to overcome reading problems and when DURETTE needed someone to help put up drywall in his house, BRIGHAM was there for three days.
"He was a good little guy," he said. "Life just sort of gave him a bad deal."
DURETTE said BRIGHAM, who suffered from schizophrenia, didn't seem well recently and some co-workers took him to the hospital about a week before his death.
But BRIGHAM, a private person, got tired of waiting and left, he said.
The 44-year-old man lived alone in an apartment in Windsor but had family on Walpole Island.
Chatham-Kent police say they believe BRIGHAM was depressed and had stopped taking his medication. They are awaiting toxicology tests.
BRIGHAM's body was found Friday in a field on the Fourth Concession Line of the former Romney Township northeast of Wheatley.
Det. Ed GIBSON said he believes BRIGHAM was riding his bike and became confused.
"It was just really bad timing for him," GIBSON said. "It was just a tragic accident."
Foul play is not suspected, but police are still looking for BRIGHAM's bicycle and why he was in Wheatley.
Anyone with information is asked to call GIBSON at 436-6622 or Det. Const. Kirk EARLEY at 436-6623.
Meanwhile, Chatham-Kent police said a body found face down in a creek near the 18 Wheeler Truck Stop in Tilbury Monday was that of a 77-year-old Tilbury woman.
The woman had been reported missing by family shortly after the body was found.
The woman had been seen within 24 hours of going missing, police said.
Her name was not released. An autopsy to determine cause of death begins today in London.

Douglas GUNTER, Army Officer: 1921-2005
Artillery officer who experienced savage fighting in the liberation of Europe was years later lauded as a 'gallant base commander' who played host to the Royal Family
By Buzz BOURDON, Thursday, April 14, 2005, Page S9
Special to The Globe and Mail
Ottawa -- Colonel Douglas GUNTER loved organizing things, so when National Defence Headquarters told him in 1972 to expect a Royal visit to Canadian Forces Base Shilo, he found himself in his element. For three months, he was everywhere, planning, inspecting and double-checking everything. He resolved that Shilo, the home station of the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery, would be in tip-top shape for a visit to Manitoba by the Queen, Prince Philip, the Prince of Wales and Princess Anne.
Even his own family was involved. A possible rail strike meant they might have to be evicted to house the Royal Family. "When I told them that we might be moving out to make room for royalty, the children thought that would be exciting, while my wife, with her Irish heritage, was less enthusiastic," Mr. GUNTER wrote in a 1993 family memoir.
His daughter, Anne BRIGHAM, who was 10 at the time, recalled the havoc. "German shepherds were brought in to sniff for bombs. My mother's silver tea service was replaced by 'something better.' She was offended!"
The family was instructed on etiquette, she said. "I had to curtsey to the Queen, Prince Philip, Charles and Anne; my brother had to bow. My mother was a good girl and did what she was told for my father's sake."
Finally, the big day arrived on July 13, 1970. Father and daughter made a final tour of the base at 9 a.m. to see that everything was ready. Then the weather, the one thing beyond Mr. GUNTER's control, went haywire. Appalled, he could only watch in horror as the clouds unleashed lightning, thunder and pelting rain on the royal enclosure. "Vicious rains were soon blowing chairs, bunting and children horizontally across the prairie," he wrote.
In due course, the Royal Family arrived and took their places on a reviewing stand to watch paratroopers from the Canadian Airborne Regiment make a free-fall parachute jump. Other soldiers then demonstrated rappelling by sliding down ropes from a hovering helicopter. That's when the spit hit the fan. Unexpectedly, backwash from the helicopter struck with a prolonged blast of air. Hats went flying and soldiers arrived at a dead run to steady the dangerously teetering structure.
A young Princess Anne managed "to hang on to her hat while her lime-green mini-skirt was flying in all directions. The ever-alert members of the media rushed with their cameras to the front of the stand to capture the royal thigh on film," wrote Mr. GUNTER.
Reacting quickly, he shielded her with his umbrella, earning him transatlantic kudos as "the gallant base commander, protecting the modesty of the young princess."
"Not since the days of Sir Walter Raleigh 400 years ago has such gallantry been seen," one newspaper reported.
Doug GUNTER had joined the army in 1939 and attended the University of New Brunswick. He was posted to 12 Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. He landed in Normandy shortly after D-Day in 1944 and fought his way across France, Belgium, the Netherlands and into Germany.
In February of 1945, he took part in a major operation to clear the west bank of the Rhine River for the drive into Germany. The attack opened with 1,200 guns in the biggest artillery barrage of the war. "My guns started firing high explosive at 0400 hours the continual flashes of gunfire meant you could read a paper anywhere," he wrote. "We continued firing until 1600 hours."
Retired Major-General Reg WEEKS of Ottawa first met Doug GUNTER during the autumn of 1944. Operating about 150 metres behind the fighting, Mr. GUNTER was acting as a forward observation officer, recording the fall and effect of artillery and calling in corrections amid the noise and confusion. A wrong move could mean untold casualties by friendly fire.
"I never knew him to make a mistake in bringing down artillery fire in the right place and the right time," said Mr. WEEKS.
Those desperate months remained with Mr. GUNTER for the rest of his life. "Our gun positions were usually littered with the purple, bloated bodies of horses, cows, pigs and enemy soldiers."
He never did become accustomed to the discovery of body parts. "I remember doing a reconnaissance for a gun position near a Dutch farm house. I discovered a teenaged girl and started to question her when artillery shells started to fall. We both dove for shelter in different areas. When the shelling stopped, I found [her] decapitated body in the farm yard. That I found very disturbing."
After the war, Mr. GUNTER transferred to the regular army, moving his#17 times before he retired in 1974 as director of artillery. He served in Canada, Korea, Germany, Britain and Cyprus.
Mr. GUNTER spent the next 10 years as the executive director of the Canadian Figure Skating Association.
Douglas Hayward GUNTER was born on March 22, 1921, in Saint John, New Brunswick He died of cancer on March 4, 2005, in Ottawa. He was 83. He leaves his wife, Josephine, children Anne and Richard, sister Dorothy and brother Harold.
