Aslam CHOUDHARY, 68: Community builder
Architect, 68, left impact on Islamic Centre of Canada
Mosque designer was 'best friend' for a lot of people
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Thousands on their way to or from work on the Queen Elizabeth Way see it daily, a graceful and silent minaret on the South Service Road in Mississauga. It belongs to the Islamic Centre of Canada, the country's largest mosque in terms of congregants 1,000 usually attend the first session of the Friday midday prayers and as many as 800 are at the second session. It is also the Canadian headquarters of the Islamic Society of North America.
But to many Canadian Muslims it represents much more than that.
"When you have that kind of building in the community, it shows you have a presence," said Mohammad ASHRAF, Islamic Society of North America Canada's secretary general. "It means to us that Muslims are part of the Canadian population."
To Aslam CHOUDHARY -- the man who helped design the Islamic Society of North America Centre, had its master key, and who was on call 24/7 as its project manager -- it was the prize of his entire career.
Before the centre opened officially in May 2001, he told his friend ASHRAF he was honoured to be building a spectacular facility that not only housed Canada's largest prayer room -- as well as a state-of-the-art co-ed high school, professional kitchen and bookstore -- but was also close to his Oakville home and would be his family's place of worship.
"He always said it was the closest to his home and the closest to his heart," ASHRAF said.
"Whenever he entered the mosque, people came to him," said his wife Kulsoom, who inevitably ended up waiting a half hour or more for him to make his way to the door.
"He couldn't just walk out of there. He was always the last one there. People wanted to ask him questions," said his son Kamran.
"He loved it when people enjoyed the building," said his daughter Naela.
But CHOUDHARY was a man of many mosques. With his long-time partner, Guido LAIKVE, he designed additions to the Jamia Masjid Mosque in Mississauga and the Islamic Centre of Cambridge.
He was responsible for the new Masumeen Islamic Centre in Brampton, two mosques in Hamilton, a Hindu temple and community centre in Brampton, at least one mosque and a Hindu temple in downtown Toronto as well as the Emmanuel Lutheran Manor, a North York apartment complex, community centre and chapel.
"My father and Guido always joked they would get into heaven one way or the other," Naela said.
They'd been a team since the mid-'70s, when they began working together for the Ontario government and decided to take extra work on the side.
"All the Islamic projects, they were Aslam's. He had the contacts, he had lots of Friends who'd offer projects to him. He was really in touch with the Islamic culture," LAIKVE said. "But he put his heart and soul into the Islamic Centre of Canada in Mississauga."
CHOUDHARY was right there in 1996 when the deal closed -- they paid $1.5 million in cash -- and ASHRAF got the key to what was then a warehouse that LAIKVE said was "an absolute shambles."
But CHOUDHARY never saw it that way. He was determined it would become a beacon and a mainstay for his community, even as they fought community opposition for four years.
CHOUDHARY always told his family and Friends they would win, and they did, although it took many, many community meetings and two hearings at the Ontario Municipal Board. CHOUDHARY was on call night and day as it was built -- and beamed throughout the 2001 opening ceremony attended by a plethora of dignitaries including Mayor Hazel McCALLION.
Then, four years later, his family and more than 700 grieving Friends gathered at the mosque for his funeral.
CHOUDHARY died October 11 at age 68.
At 5, CHOUDHARY was already designing houses. The second oldest of nine children, he was 12 when his father decided to move his family from Kenya back to Pakistan and move the family into a house his son had designed for the family. CHOUDHARY returned to Kenya at 21 to help support the family after his father died.
He took a clerical job while studying architectural drafting at night and by 1964 was working for a Nairobi architectural firm. He was there when Kulsoom phoned, telling him they had to leave the country. It was 1968, Kenya had just gained its independence and the headline on the front page of the Nation that day read: "Britain slams her door on Kenya nation."
"Are you crazy?" he said to her.
They had three days to leave; the airport was jammed with men like him heading to Britain and leaving behind their families until they could afford to send for them.
CHOUDHARY got a drafting job in Birmingham almost immediately the family reunited five months later.
In his first year in England, CHOUDHARY ended up designing and supervising the construction of the Coventry Mosque, typically waiving all fees.
In 1969 he helped found the Muslim East African Association of Birmingham -- it's still going today -- and took over the design and construction of the Central Birmingham Mosque, the city's first purpose-built mosque.
He didn't see its completion before moving his family -- which now consisted of twin sons Kamran and Imran as well as Naela to Canada in 1975.
"We fell in love with Canada. We said 'This is like Africa' -- the lakes, the greenery. We told each other 'This is home now,'" Kulsoom said.
Almost immediately he began teaching Muslim children about their religion at sessions held for seven years in their apartment, then later on Tuesday nights in a friend's basement. He was one of the founders of the Canadian East African Muslim Association, which today boasts about 300 members.
Before taking early retirement, CHOUDHARY worked in the architectural section of the Ontario Realty Corp. and on a stream of projects with LAIKVE.
He was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in July.
It was only at his funeral, in the mosque he nurtured to life, did his family meet many of the people he had helped -- a man he'd helped get a job, another he'd helped do a drawing, gratis, and the stranger who told his family that he had gone to their dad "for everything."
"He was a lot of people's best friend," said his wife, marvelling that men and women were approaching her at the mosque and kissing her hand. "That was all because of him."

She saw hope in every street kid
Karen POSITANO a passionate and stubborn advocate
Worked to start training programs, needle exchange
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Perhaps this anecdote can best sum up the many parts of Karen POSITANO, a petite and driven dynamo, an original, as well as a world traveller, insomniac, wife, mother of three and champion of every street kid who came by Youthlink Inner City, the drop-in resource centre and outreach program where she worked for almost 16 years:
It was 1994 and POSITANO was in Amsterdam at a world A.I.D.S. conference. She had met up with Hélène LALONDE, her buddy since their teenaged days in Ottawa when they lived innocently but recklessly and knew everyone, including bikers and drug dealers. She and LALONDE, now a consultant often working for the Canadian International Development Agency in developing countries, were standing at a bus stop when a passerby shrieked: "Karen POSITANO!"
It was Gwendolyn, a stripper POSITANO knew from Toronto who was in Amsterdam working at a live sex show.
"Karen POSITANO?" echoed one of the other people at the stop.
Turns out this person was with the World Health Organization and had been seeking POSITANO to sign her up as a speaker at a Rio de Janeiro conference for street kids, and she'd been hard pressed to locate her, as POSITANO had spent much of the last two days marching on the street with prostitutes.
"Yeah, she left me at the hotel," said her youngest daughter, Jill ROCHON, with a laugh. She was 14 at the time. "I was safe there, she knew that."
POSITANO was well known internationally. She was invited to make presentations at another world A.I.D.S. conference in Vancouver as well as at various H.I.V. and A.I.D.S. prevention and hepatitis C gatherings throughout North America.
In Toronto she was a member of Councillor Olivia CHOW's children and youth committee.
What she was renowned for was her tenacity, her push and her passion. After her first marriage failed and she lost her bid to convince a court to change her children's surname to hers, she took the matter to the Supreme Court.
"When she decided to do something, you just got out of the way," said her second husband, Gerry ROCHON.
"She definitely had a stubborn streak," said her eldest child, Karyn, 31. It is why she and brother Cain, 30, have the surname POSITANO.
In the early '80s, POSITANO and ROCHON and the three kids moved to Ottawa from Vancouver where they had been living. There she worked full-time and went to school full-time, getting a degree in criminology plus her master of social work. She also organized and played in a women's baseball league, acted in university theatre, took dance classes and travelled to exotic destinations such as Thailand.
She began working with street youth at Youthlink Inner City as part of the job placement for her social work degree; she was so enthusiastic about the work that not only did she convince her family to move to Toronto, she also created her own full-time employment there.
"Inner City was the root of her work. It catered to youth no one else would, those with mental health problems, prostitutes, drug users," said Rebecca BASSEY, a friend and former employee.
POSITANO never let anything stand in the way of getting more programs or more program dollars for the youth she saw every day at her office. Her funding proposals were legendary -- succinct, persuasive and usually written a month before the deadline -- but her first work for Youthlink was the production of two very radical education videos for street youth.
STD Street Smarts and Street Wise Women came with a warning of "frank language and explicit imagery" because the penises in the videos were real.
"Some people might say her style was abrasive," said Liz GREAVES, Youthlink executive director, "but she shot straight from the hip."
In 1999, she blasted the Mayor's Task Force on Homelessness, of which GREAVES was a member, for ignoring the plight of homeless youth.
"She was absolutely right," GREAVES said. The task force subsequently commissioned a report.
Fearless and always on the cutting edge, POSITANO was an early advocate of Youthlink's work in harm reduction. The agency was the first in the city to run a needle exchange program.
In 1998, she was one of the organizers of a program for squeegee kids, a new headline-grabbing demographic that was unsettling if not scaring many people in the city. While police were cracking down on homeless people in public places and the provincial government was bringing in the Safe Streets Act, POSITANO was part of a group lobbying Toronto politicians for resources to help these youth. The result is a fully federally funded training program teaching computer skills called the Youth Skills Zone.
In 1995, POSITANO was promoted to supervisor, responsible for a staff of about nine at Youthlink Inner City's drop-in/resource and outreach program. She started the Sock Swap, gathering cast-offs from families and Friends to recycle to the street kids. Before the centre got its washer and dryer, she'd take all the dirty socks home to wash them. She also started a monthly supper club for street youth with hepatitis C.
An early proponent of the peer educator program, in which clients work 10 hours a week at the drop-in and do outreach with other street or addicted youth, she conceived and won funding for the advanced peer education program.
This is a year-long full-time staff position, "one of the most important positions we have," according to Inner City supervisor Diana WALKER. "I think Karen saw hope in everyone who walked through the door."
POSITANO raced through her life, taking each of her children on a coming-of-age trip to Europe, meeting up with LALONDE in Kenya, Brazil and Egypt, holidaying with BASSEY in Jamaica and with her husband in Morocco, and finding thrift stores wherever she went. She volunteered with Habitat for Humanity building houses in Fiji, Uganda and India, where she met Mother Teresa. Once a month, she spent her Saturday mornings working in the Big Sisters thrift shop at Lawrence Ave. W. and Avenue Rd. More than once she climbed the C.N. Tower stairs for the United Way.
For kicks, she was an extra in David Cronenberg's The Naked Lunch, stalked celebrities on the red carpet at all the Toronto Film Festivals, dragged family and Friends to rock concerts, and plundered furniture discarded in Forest Hill and Rosedale. She and ROCHON bought, renovated and sold nine houses together. She also loved organizing and decorating them.
"She packed a lot in," said ROCHON. "It was as if she almost knew she wouldn't have a long life."
She'd beaten cancer of the uterus 14 years earlier, so she was typically upbeat when she was diagnosed two years ago with breast cancer.
"She had the kind of personality that you just thought she would beat it," said LALONDE.
"She always said it was no big deal," added BASSEY.
And they believed her even when she suffered a heart attack a year ago that almost ended her life. POSITANO rallied enough to sometimes make it back to work and to her office with the window that looked out on to the kitchen and eating area of the drop-in centre.
"I used to update her, make her feel at home because she didn't know a lot of the clients now," said John LAFORME, a crack addict and regular at Youthlink for four years. POSITANO always encouraged him to get the help he needed and last month he left for a detox facility in Quebec. "I'm doing it for me and for Karen," he said. "I've been in drop-ins and agencies across Canada and Karen was one of the best drop-in workers ever. She took the time to get to know you."
Ten days before she died, at her home on the afternoon of October 1 at the age 52, POSITANO attended a Youthlink managers' meeting. A day or so later, she sent Liz GREAVES an email saying she was going to lick cancer. "There was such a fierceness to her," GREAVES said.
POSITANO wanted to live long enough to see her first grandchild, and she did. Karyn named her newborn daughter Kalina, Hawaiian for Karen.

Man charged in wife's drowning death
Body of woman, 60, found in bathtub
By Tim LAI, With a report from CFTO News, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page A11
A 60-year-old man charged with first-degree murder in the drowning death of his wife will appear in court tomorrow.
On Friday night, police responded to an incident at 26 Underhill Drive, near the Don Valley Parkway and Lawrence Avenue East, for a possible suicide.
When officers arrived, Patricia KIRK, 60, was discovered dead in her bathtub.
A postmortem examination conducted on Saturday determined drowning to be the cause of death, Toronto Police said.
Raymond KIRK, the victim's husband, was inside their home and was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Yesterday, residents of this quiet Don Mills townhouse complex sat and read in their yards as if it was any sleepy summer Sunday. But the yellow police tape and officers on duty marred the suburban scene.
Police forensics teams were busy working inside Unit 305 in the Cloisters of the Don.
One neighbour who has known the couple for more than 35 years and didn't want to be identified said they were quiet and kept to themselves.
"They'd be the last couple I'd think of that would have any problems," he said.
Another neighbour, who also has known the couple over three decades and also didn't want to be identified, expressed dismay over what happened.
He didn't socialize with the KIRKs on a regular basis, he said, but added they were very friendly.
Mrs. KIRK, who had suffered from chronic back pain for several years, was able to leave the house only sporadically, he said.
But he had thought she was on the mend.
Behind police lines was the KIRKs' meticulous and colourful garden, which the neighbour said the couple took tremendous pride in maintaining.
The KIRKs have two adult sons.
The death is Toronto's 34th homicide of the year and the second in a week in which a husband has been charged in connection with his wife's death.
Last Sunday, 41-year-old Hafiza CHOWDFURY died at St. Michael's Hospital of blunt-force head injuries.
Rafat CHOWDFURY, 46, has been charged with second-degree murder.

CHOWEN, Shirley
In loving memory of Shirley CHOWEN, Wife, Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma. When I am gone release me, let me go I have so many things to see and do You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears But be thankful we had so many good years I gave you my love and you can only guess How much you've given me in happiness I thank you for the love that you have shown But now it is time I travelled on alone So grieve for me a while if grieve you must Then let your grief be comforted by trust So treasure the memories within your heart I won't be far away for life goes on And if you need me call and I will come Though you can't see me or touch me I will be near, and if you listen with your heart You'll hear all my love around you soft and clear And then when you come this way alone I'll greet you with a smile And a "Welcome Home" Missed by husband Bob and family.
