Slayer of ex-girlfriend found dead
Apparent suicide in Quebec hotel
Free on $1,500 bail when couple shot
By Betsy POWELL and Richard BRENNAN, Staff Reporters
The ex-boyfriend of a woman he stalked, terrorized and last Friday night shot to death appears to have killed himself in a Quebec hotel room.
John KOVACS, 52, was free on bail -- on charges of criminal harassment and threatening death -- when he ambushed Szilvia VERES, 35, and wounded her husband Miklos KEMENCZY, 46, in an underground apartment parking garage in North York.
The scenario is all too common -- and yet avoidable, says Pamela CROSS, who expressed frustration about the process that's supposed to keep stalkers away from their victims.
"This woman had moved on and was seeking the protection of the criminal system and she failed to get it," said CROSS, legal director of Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children.
The minister responsible for women's issues in the Ontario government pointed to a pilot program aimed at making better assessments of risk in such cases. But critics say there's no reason to delay bringing in tougher bail rules for men charged with stalking and harassment.
Court documents show KOVACS was released on $1,500 bail after appearing in a Finch Ave. W. courtroom last November. Police had charged him with three counts of criminal harassment and one count of uttering a death threat stemming from three incidents last year.
Police believe KOVACS had a short-term relationship with VERES. They broke up last March and VERES married KEMENCZY in November.
The court records indicate the couple complained after he watched a house near Steeles Ave. and Bathurst St. last August 29. On another occasion, KOVACS followed VERES "from place to place" and on October 23, he threatened to kill KEMENCZY.
It's unclear when he was first charged, but he was released on bail on condition he stay more than 200 metres from any place where VERES or KEMENCZY "live, work, attend school or happen to be as known to you." He was also ordered not to use or possess a cellphone. There was no condition to seek counselling.
His surety, according to court documents, was Nicolaus SZILY, believed to be an old friend of KOVACS, who worked as a machinist for an aircraft company. KOVACS was supposed to be living at SZILY's home in the city's west end.
SZILY could not be reached for comment last night.
Between his arrest and last Friday's shooting, KOVACS made several court appearances. His next court date was tomorrow.
The tragic turn of events underscores the ineffectiveness of bail conditions and the need for courts to take a long hard look at an alleged stalker's capacity for violence, said CROSS.
"I really don't understand what it's going to take to get the criminal system to understand that these are men who by nature of the charge of criminal harassment are at extremely high risk of re-offending," she said yesterday.
"We have advocated for some years... that the bail system in Ontario be overhauled and there should be a requirement, not just that a risk assessment be completed by the police, but that that risk assessment be presented by the Crown in the bail hearings."
If the judge or justice of the peace doesn't follow the recommendation, he or she would have to provide reasons why not, she continued.
Social Services Minister Sandra PUPATELLO, responsible for women's issues, said government, agencies and police have to keep trying to protect women from men -- usually spouses or former lovers who want to hurt them.
PUPATELLO admitted that restraining orders and police charges will not stop a "crazy person from doing a crazy thing, but to the extent we can change that, we have to,"
In December, the Liberal government released a domestic violence action plan calling for a consistent police response to things like restraining orders and an assessment tool for police to determine risk of continued violence.
"In the past January, we started the pilot project in Ottawa and North Bay in both English and French for an assessment tool that actually determines the risk of flight, risk of violence," PUPATELLO said.
"My fear is that there are people who come in (to the system) and they are back out... (and the question is) should they be back out and we are not going to know the answer to that until we implement this kind of review."
New Democratic Party member of provincial parliament Marilyn CHURLEY (Toronto-Danforth) pointed to past inquests into the deaths of women killed by spouses and ex-lovers and asked how many more woman have to die before government follows through.
"The recommendations are there and they are just not being followed up on, and I was just stricken when I heard about this latest death," CHURLEY said.
"There are huge problems with underenforcement of restraining orders," she added.
After witnesses: reported KOVACS had fled the scene in his silver Honda, police issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder.
Around 4 p.m. Monday, workers at a hotel in Rivière-du-Loup, about 200 kilometres northeast of Quebec City, discovered KOVACS dead of a single gunshot wound. He was identified through fingerprints.
A firearm was recovered at the scene, but police don't yet know if it was the one used to shoot the couple.
Toronto police have not been able to locate KOVACS' next of kin and they are asking the public for help. They believe he is originally from eastern Europe. Police also had difficulty tracking down VERES's relatives, but they have notified her mother, who lives in Hungary, homicide Detective Terry BROWNE said yesterday.
KEMENCZY is recovering in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery. The investigation is continuing.

Margaret ALLEMANG, Nurse And Scholar: 1914-2005
Pioneer in applying methodology to traditional care, she wrote the first paper on Canadian nursing history
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Decades after the entrance exam that secured her a spot in the University of Toronto's School of Nursing, Margaret ALLEMANG -- by then a much-honoured professor emeritus -- was still mulling over her response to the question of why she wanted to be a nurse. "I guess I just used the pat answer," she mused in a 1993 interview, "that 'I wanted to be of service to others."
An inveterate deep thinker, Dr. ALLEMANG could never settle for a pat answer if a more profound one could be unearthed. As her nephew, Globe and Mail writer John ALLEMANG, recalls, "She had a professorial way of dealing with issues: you always allow time for further thought and consideration, and you don't close off any avenues for possibility." Yet in spite of her second-guessing, what she said in 1937 proved inescapably true -- both of her career as a researcher, teacher and historian, and of herself in general.
One of a new breed of nurses who emerged from an academic program instead of from an in-hospital apprenticeship, Dr. ALLEMANG was a pioneer in applying research methodology to traditional nursing. "Essentially, nursing wasn't a research-oriented profession or academic pursuit," Mr. ALLEMANG says. "It was simply the business of training nurses to be nurses. So she was kind of on the edge of that transition, where they started doing clinical studies of nursing care."
Her 1956 master's thesis on "factors affecting the sleep of patients" was among the earliest dissertations in clinical nursing. It was unique, too, for its emphasis on the individual patient -- a marked contrast from other studies of the era. Throughout the 1960s, Dr. ALLEMANG continued to broaden the purview of contemporary clinical research, chronicling the experiences of hospitalized cardiac patients and leading an experimental research unit at Sunnybrook Hospital trying out more patient-centred systems of nursing.
"She was very concerned with the patient as a person -- a whole person," says her friend and teaching colleague, Judith YOUNG.
Dr. ALLEMANG's quest to meet the "patient's physical, emotional and spiritual needs" was one charted by personal experience. As a child, she suffered from osteomyelitis, a chronic bone infection that left her bed-ridden for most of her youth. Later, studying philosophy in university, she came to embrace the existentialist view of how a crisis like hers could be transformative. "There was the idea in my thinking," she said, "that this fits into the sick person, because illness is a crisis, that people can grow and learn through illness."
For her PhD, Dr. ALLEMANG initially wanted to construct a theory of nursing "based on the existentialist approach to man." But her PhD committee at the University of Washington nixed the idea. So instead, she turned to the development of nursing education in North America from 1873 to 1950, focusing on the leaders who ushered in its most important changes. The project took her nearly 20 years to complete, with Dr. ALLEMANG working on it in between teaching duties at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Nursing. She was, remarks her nephew, "a great procrastinator."
When Dr. ALLEMANG's paper finally did come out in 1976, it was the first ever published on Canadian nursing history. Moreover, points out Kathryn McPHERSON, dean of women's studies at York University, it also deposited a crucial piece of scholarship into the hands of social historians just as they were starting to take stock of women's history-making contributions. "It was consistent with a genre of women's history which was about looking at Canada's female leadership," Dr. McPHERSON says.
While pursuing her PhD, Dr. ALLEMANG became familiar with another group of history-making women through the Nursing Sisters Association of Canada. She herself served as a nursing sister in the air force during the Second World War. While she did not go overseas, she later discovered dozens of women who had been principal actors in the drama of war. From 1977 until the early 1990s, she systematically interviewed 30 of them in a monumental oral history project. "It's very different view of the war," Dr. YOUNG says. "Nurses were the only women who were close to the front lines. I think Margaret saw them all as heroines."
During the 1980s, a group interested in nursing history, including Dr. YOUNG and Dr. McPHERSON, began to coalesce around Dr. ALLEMANG in meetings hosted at her West Toronto home. In 1993, the group formalized as the Margaret M. Allemang Centre for the History of Nursing. Even without a building or staff, Dr. McPHERSON believes their advocacy helped prevent precious archival materials from being lost during the wave of cutbacks that swept health care in the mid-1990s. She also credits Dr. ALLEMANG for bringing nursing history into its own in Canada through her tireless support of academics like herself.
"She was a real encourager, a co-ordinator," Dr. McPHERSON says. "Nursing history is so much part of general social history, so much on the map."
Never married, Dr. ALLEMANG was particularly close to Mr. ALLEMANG, her twin brother's son. In her retirement, the two regularly went to the opera and restaurants together, and would indulge in substantive conversations about the arts, history, food and philosophy. Somehow, Mr. ALLEMANG marvels, she managed to be a critical thinker without ever being critical. "I never knew if she had a bad thought about anybody," he says. "I'm sure she did, but you had to work pretty hard to get a sense that she didn't approve of something."
Even when a boarder from Hong Kong took her prized red Mustang on a wild joyride that ended in it being totalled, Mr. ALLEMANG says his aunt barely budged. Nor did it discourage Dr. ALLEMANG from her practice of opening her home to strangers. The last in a long series of tenants was Gizaw CHUTA, a refugee from Ethiopia and a minister in training. Today, Reverend CHUTA says he initially worried that the elderly white Canadian would see his presence as an imposition. "What she told me, she has experience with all people, with all cultures, so she liked to talk with all people. For her, really, all the world's people are the same."
When Mr. CHUTA learned last November that his wife and children had finally received visas to come to Canada, Dr. ALLEMANG insisted on paying their airfares.
Margaret ALLEMANG was born in Toronto on July 19, 1914. She died in Toronto on April 14, 2005. She was 91.

PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.
