KHALIL, Isis (April 7, 1941-September 4, 2005)
Went to be with Our Lord after a courageous battle with cancer. Isis was surrounded by her family and Friends when she passed away at Sunnybrook Hospital. Beloved wife of Samir. Treasured mother of son Yousri, and daughter Amira. Dear sister of Maher SEDRA, Salwa RAFLA, Tahany FARAG, Sanaa MIKAHAIL and Magdy SEDRA. Loving aunt to several nieces and nephews. Devoted friend to many. Isis immigrated to Canada from Egypt in 1966. Shortly thereafter, with her usual determination, her diligent studies enabled her employment as a medical lab technologist at Sunnybrook Hospital. Her 31 year career span at Sunnybrook was filled with dedication, integrity, and personal and professional growth. She was a valued and respected supervisor and colleague. Isis lived life to the fullest with little time for sleep. She loved Canada dearly and made use of all the opportunities it gave her to live a full and rewarding life. Her refirement in 2000 allowed her more time for personal pursuits such as travelling, volunteer work and outdoor activities. Isis was an avid reader and had interests in many areas, including Egyptology, history, politics, Egyptian literature and short story writing. Her passion for Middle Eastern costume creations and presentations was greatly appreciated in many circles. She cherished her involvement at fund-raising events and festivals at both Saint Mark's and Saint Mary's Coptic Orthodox Churches, and Chapel Place Presbyterian Church. It was in the Discipleship of Our Lord's work that Isis found greatest satisfaction. We will all greatly miss her. Resting at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, 8911 Woodbine Ave., Markham (three lights north of Hwy. 7), 905-305-8508. Visitation on Thursday, September 8 from 1-3 and 6-8 p.m. and Friday 9-11 a.m. Funeral Service on Friday, September 9 at 12 p.m. at Saint Mark's Coptic Church (41 Glendinning, Scarborough). Interment at Westminster Cemetery. If desired, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society may be made in loving memory of Isis.

Black bear mauls doctor to death
Canadian Press
Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park -- Police and wildlife officials were hunting a wounded black bear yesterday after a woman was mauled to death and her husband hurt as he tried to stop the animal dragging his wife into northern Ontario bush.
Campers have been ordered out of the back country of Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, about 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, as conservation officers equipped with a helicopter and a dog team scour the area.
Natural Resources officials said Marc JORDAN of Cambridge was armed with only a Swiss Army knife as he fought to keep the predatory animal from dragging his fatally mauled wife, Jacqueline PERRY, into the brush.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said. "But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
JORDAN, 30, suffered cuts while slashing the bear at least five times, police said. The computer specialist was flown to a Sudbury hospital, where he was expected to require surgery. He was listed in serious but stable condition.
PERRY, 30, was a family doctor at a Cambridge hospital. Staff at Grandview Medical Centre were devastated on hearing of Tuesday's attack, said lead physician, Jeff MAIN.
JORDAN and PERRY were on a two-week holiday, camping and kayaking alone at a remote campsite when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said.
He yelled for help and a 54-year-old man and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, camping at a site, heard him.
JORDAN put his wife into their boat, which carried them all off in search of help.
About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away. But by then, PERRY had died.
"I've lived here all my life and this is a first for me," said FARAND/PHARAND.
"I can't even imagine what (PERRY and JORDAN) went through."
FARAND/PHARAND said the area is home to many black bears and has had more than its usual share of bear sightings this year because it hasn't been a good season for blueberries.
Keith SCOTT, a bear expert with the Ministry of Natural Resources, said such attacks are "very rare."
"There's only been four fatalities in Ontario through black bears dating back to about 1978," he said.
"In this particular case, it's early in the investigation, but it appears to be a predatory-type bear. These bears have learned to and often prey on humans."
The attack is just the latest in what has been a busy season for bear attacks across Canada.
A Manitoba man fended off a black bear in early September, just one week after a black bear killed another man in the province.
There have also been four grizzly attacks in Alberta since June, including a fatal one on a female jogger near Canmore. A woman in British Columbia was also mauled in May.

Cambridge doctor fatally mauled by bear
Husband tries to fend off animal with knife
Community mourns 'wonderful' physician
By Liz MONTEIRO and Brian CALDWELL, Torstar News Service, Kitchener-Waterloo Record
Cambridge -- Armed with only a Swiss Army knife, Cambridge resident Mark JORDAN fended off a predatory bear yesterday, but not before the animal fatally mauled his wife, Dr. Jacqueline PERRY.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said yesterday.
"But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
The couple were on a two-week holiday in Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, Ontario
PERRY, 30, was a family physician at the Grandview Medical Centre on Hespeler Rd. in Cambridge, and JORDAN, 30, is a computer specialist. The couple married nearly four years ago and didn't have any children.
Staff at the medical centre were devastated yesterday, and patients were calling in disbelief, said the centre's lead physician, Dr. Jeff MAIN.
"Jacqueline represented vitality and youthfulness," he said. "It's like losing a child. She was the youngest partner here."
PERRY and JORDAN were alone at the remote campsite yesterday afternoon when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND of the Superior East Ontario Provincial Police detachment.
The bear went after PERRY, and JORDAN tried to distract it by screaming.
Then, as the animal dragged PERRY into the bush, JORDAN slashed it at least five times with the Swiss Army knife. The bear finally fled, and conservation officers were searching for it yesterday.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said. He yelled for help and a 54-year-old father and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, who were camping at a site, heard him and got into their pontoon boat.
JORDAN put his wife into the boat, which carried them all off in search of help. About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued on to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away.
PERRY died of her injuries. JORDAN was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital in Sudbury, where he was in stable but serious condition yesterday.
This is just the fourth time since 1978 that a black bear has stalked and killed anyone in Ontario. The most recent attack took place in 1992.
"It's very rare and we would prefer to keep it that way," KOWALSKI said. "This is just one of those horrible aberrations."
FARAND/PHARAND said the father and son who came to the aid of the couple had been frightened by the bear about 45 minutes before the fatal attack.
The men were hiking when the bear approached them. They shouted and made as much noise before the bear scampered, FARAND/PHARAND said.
The pair returned to their campsite and were packing up when they heard JORDAN yell for help.
JORDAN's mother, Rosalind JORDAN of Mississauga, who is at her son's bedside in Sudbury, said her daughter-in-law was vivacious, caring and compassionate with her patients and her family.
"She was a bright spark, a bright star," she said. "She knew what she wanted. This just seems so wrong."
PERRY graduated from the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine in 2001. She started at Grandview last November and became a partner at the centre in July. She also worked part time as an emergency room doctor at Brantford General Hospital.
"The community has lost a wonderful physician, and staff and doctors have lost a great colleague and friend," said Jeff POLL, Grandview's administrator.

Edward BRONFMAN remembered as kind, shy
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Edward BRONFMAN, who with his brother, Peter, developed a business empire that branched into much of the Canadian economy, has died at 77. An official with Brascan Corp., the successor conglomerate to the enterprise created by the so-called Toronto BRONFMANs, confirmed that he died yesterday.
Edward and Peter BRONFMAN were excluded from the Seagram liquor fortune by their uncle, Samuel, who ensured his sons, Charles and Edgar, would control the Montreal-based distillery giant.
With Toronto as their base, Peter and Edward BRONFMAN built their own business empire anchored by holding companies Edper and Hees.
The so-called Edper Bronfman group was an intricate web of companies with assets worth an estimated $100 billion at its peak -- the largest conglomerate in Canada.
Its holdings ranged from London Life, Royal Trust and real estate broker Royal LePage to developer Bramalea, forest giant MacMillan Bloedel, brewer Labatt and the Montreal Canadiens hockey club.
He was also well known for his charity work.
Bernie FARBER, head of the Canadian Jewish Congress, called BRONFMAN one of the Jewish community's most treasured philanthropists.
"He was down to earth, kind, gentle... Although he was clearly a man of great means, he was just one of the people. It's the best way I can put it. He was just a really fine, fine human being and it's a great loss."
Edward BRONFMAN was less involved in running the businesses than Peter. He was deputy board chairperson, but sold about a quarter of his Edper shares in 1989, mainly to the firm's top managers.
A graduate in business administration from Babson College in Massachusetts, Edward BRONFMAN enjoyed running and skiing. He had three sons.
He shunned the limelight, but was active on a wide range of boards and charities. He was a director of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews and Canadian Council for Native Business and led fundraising efforts ranging from a sports centre in Israel to Toronto's Edward Bronfman Family Foundation Research Clinic in Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
The holdings of the Edper group -- its name combining Edward and Peter -- suffered a sharp decline during the recession of the early 1990s.
Labatt and MacMillan Bloedel were sold to raise nearly $2 billion to shore up the eroding empire.
There are no longer any BRONFMANs directly involved in Brascan.

White supremacist DROEGE shot to death in Toronto
By Joe FRIESEN, Thursday, April 14, 2005, Page A1
Toronto -- Wolfgang DROEGE, a white supremacist, Nazi sympathizer and former leader of the Heritage Front, was shot to death in the hallway of a Toronto apartment building yesterday.
Mr. DROEGE, 55, who had a lengthy criminal history including drug charges, was found dead in a second-floor hallway on North Dr. in the Upper Beaches.
Officers from the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force responded to a report of gunshots in the building just before 3 p.m. and discovered that a man, believed to be the assailant, had barricaded himself in an apartment.
Superintendent Bob CLARKE of 41 Division said crisis negotiators took over at that point and spoke to the man over the telephone.
"I understand there was telephone communication between the suspect and the Emergency Task Force officers. After a brief period of time it was resolved and we took the person into custody."
Another man, whom Supt. CLARKE identified as the suspect's brother, arrived at the scene and spoke with the man over the telephone, but it is not known whether that intervention played a role in the eventual surrender.
Mr. DROEGE, born in Germany in 1949, came to prominence as a leading figure on the extreme right in the 1970s. In 1975 he painted the words "white power" along the planned parade route for an African Liberation Day march and was arrested for damaging property.
Soon after, he joined the Ku Klux Klan under then-leader David Duke and tried to start a branch in Canada.
In 1981, in perhaps his most spectacular political foray, he was one of 10 men convicted of plotting to overthrow the government of Dominica.
They planned to use the Caribbean island as a base for drug smuggling, thereby generating funds for white supremacist activities elsewhere in the world. He served two years in U.S. prison for the conspiracy.
Mr. DROEGE returned to Canada in 1989 after serving more time in U.S. prisons for drugs and weapons offences. He quickly set about establishing a network to unite far-right groups in Canada under the auspices of the Heritage Front.
Bernie FARBER of the Canadian Jewish Congress, who campaigned against the Heritage Front in the 1990s, said that for a time under Mr. DROEGE's leadership there was increased interest in the group's brand of extremism.
"They were getting 200 to 300 people at rallies," Mr. FARBER said. "During his leadership the Heritage Front was one of the most deplored racist organizations of its day."
Mr. FARBER said Mr. DROEGE has been out of the spotlight for more than seven years, since the Heritage Front collapsed and white supremacists in Canada fell into political disarray.
"We knew that he maintained some kind of connection to the racist right, but he was never the public face again," Mr. FARBER said.
"This man's criminal history is quite lengthy so I don't think it was any great surprise that he lived on the dark side and was taken by the dark side."
Kimberly GORMAN, who lived in the same building as Mr. DROEGE, said she thought he had been trying to change his ways over the past several years.
He travelled to Europe frequently, she said, but certainly didn't have a typical 9-to-5 job. He slept during the day and did most of his living at night. About six months ago he complained that someone had tried to break down his door, and he showed Ms. GORMAN the damage.
She said his apartment was usually messy, but there was never any sign of the white supremacist politics he espoused publicly over many years.
"He was a very nice man," she said. "I think for the past five years of his life he was trying not to be the guy that he once was."
She also said he was extremely health conscious, always watching what he ate and taking many vitamins.
During yesterday's standoff, which lasted about an hour, dozens of heavily armed Emergency Task Force officers swarmed the apartment building on the quiet suburban street. Several pensioners were caught in the building, but many were taken out by the Emergency Task Force. A local school was placed on lockdown for a short time, police said.
Jason TANZOLA, who has lived three doors down from Mr. DROEGE for two years, was shocked to find his neighbourhood transformed into a heavily guarded armed camp.
He described Mr. DROEGE, whom he knew simply as Wolf, as one of the nicest guys in the world.
"I used to walk by him in the hallway and we'd say hello. If it is what people are saying it is, I'd be quite shocked, because I wouldn't peg him as somebody who'd be a racist."
Toronto Police did not release the name of the man being held in connection with Mr. DROEGE's death.

Rabbi Irwin WITTY
By Bernie M. FARBER, Ed MORGAN and Seymour EPSTEIN, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page A20
Jewish educator, Torah scholar, family man, raconteur extraordinaire. Born September 22, 1932, in Brooklyn, New York Died July 30 in Toronto, of natural causes, aged 72.
Just ask his 22 grandchildren about Rabbi Irwin WITTY's oratorical skills. They will tell you the times when the grandchildren would gather at his home, snuggle up close, and he would tell them stories of Blackie, a dog who ran into all kinds of ethical and moral problems but at the end of the story ended up teaching his human Friends moral lessons. And that was what Rabbi WITTY was all about.
Rabbi WITTY had a lifelong passion: Jewish education. He was born in Brooklyn in 1932 in an area where Judaism imbued all parts of life. After graduating from Yeshiva University, New York, he worked as a teacher and principal in Philadelphia and then in Winnipeg. While in Winnipeg he had a dual role as teacher and pulpit rabbi.
A story is told about his time in Winnipeg that during the seven years he served as rabbi, he was the Lou Gehrig of the synagogue league, never missing a Sabbath service. As an orthodox Jew, he was not permitted to drive on Saturday. Even though he lived two miles from the synagogue and despite Winnipeg's blustery winter weather, he made the trek, often with his four children. One Saturday morning, with the temperature close to minus 40°C and a winter blizzard blowing in from the prairies, Rabbi WITTY and his daughter Judith ran from apartment block to apartment block gaining shelter and respite until they finally made it to the warmth of their synagogue.
In 1969, Rabbi WITTY was hired as the Executive Director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education, which was then a small supervisory body. Through Rabbi WITTY's leadership, the Board of Jewish Education became a leader in Jewish education both in Canada and around the world.
During his time with the Board of Jewish Education he worked hand in hand with Canadian Jewish Congress and the United Jewish Appeal Federation in another passion of his, the right of faith-based schools to access government funding. Indeed, whether it was a government bureaucrat or the premier of the province, they all knew that if Rabbi WITTY was coming to see them, they had better have their arguments well-honed. While the Rabbi was a tolerant man, he would not hesitate to unleash the full force of his considerable advocacy skills. In doing so, he spoke not only with great wisdom and moral authority but, as his name suggests, with a bitingly accurate wit.
Rabbi WITTY led an orthodox lifestyle and while being an orthodox, recognized the need to identify with Jews of all different religious backgrounds. He was as much at home in an orthodox synagogue as he was conferring with reform, conservative and secular Jews as well as clergy of all different faiths wherever he met them. Indeed, he was the paradigm of what a Jewish educator should be.
But Rabbi WITTY was more than a Jewish educator and advocate. He understood that education needed to use to many tools bring out lessons of life. He was a man skilled in the languages and literature of his people, a man of many accents, a man of much music, and a man of rich humour. It was impossible to follow him on a podium; the audience was still laughing at his last joke and remembering his message.
Rabbi WITTY's deep Jewish knowledge, his elegance in communication, the music in his voice, and his respect for everyone made him a teachers' teacher, the perfect model for the role he so well filled.
Bernie M. FARBER, Ed MORGAN and Seymour EPSTEIN are Friends and colleagues of Rabbi WITTY.

Rabbi 'a father of Jewish education'
Pushed the province to fund Jewish schools
'In his blood he knew the art of teaching'
By Naomi CARNIOL, Staff Reporter
Rabbi Irwin WITTY made sure no Jewish child in Toronto lacked a Jewish education because of money.
During his years as executive director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education, he worked with United Jewish Appeal to ensure money was put aside for children who could not afford tuition at local Jewish schools.
After he retired, he continued to push the provincial government to fund Jewish schools.
WITTY died Saturday night in Toronto. He was 73.
Jewish education was WITTY's lifelong passion, colleagues said.
"In his blood he knew the art of teaching," said Seymour EPSTEIN, the board's current executive director.
Born in Brooklyn in 1932, WITTY graduated from Yeshiva University in New York. He worked as a teacher and principal in Philadelphia and Winnipeg.
In Winnipeg, he was also a pulpit rabbi at a synagogue for seven years and helped found a charitable organization to support the Winnipeg Hebrew School. In 1969, WITTY became executive director of the Toronto Board of Jewish Education. He held the position until 1997.
In Toronto, WITTY helped found the Dr. Abraham Shore Academy She'arim Hebrew Day School, which runs programs for Jewish children with learning disabilities.
WITTY believed Jewish education strengthened not only the Jewish community. In a 1985 interview with the Star, he said, "I think we've learned from other groups that the preservation of collective ethnic identity enriches society in general."
EPSTEIN praised WITTY's "vast and deep knowledge of his subject matter, which was Judaica, Jewish history, Jewish philosophy..."
Howard ENGLISH, a spokesman for the United Jewish Appeal Federation of Greater Toronto, worked with WITTY during the rabbi's years with the board of education.
"He was one of a rare breed of educators who was respected by the whole spectrum of the Jewish community.... More importantly, he respected everyone, no matter what their religious denomination," ENGLISH said.
EPSTEIN agreed. "He led an Orthodox lifestyle and was an Orthodox rabbi, but he was beyond tolerant. He truly identified with Jews of all different persuasions. He was a kind of model of what a Jewish educator should be."
Bernie FARBER, Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Jewish Congress, said WITTY was recognized around the world as a leader in Jewish education. That was partly because of the changes he brought to the board.
"He took a small supervisory body and made it into a major source of school consultative services," FARBER said.
Three years ago, WITTY became the executive director of the Albert and Temmy Latner Jewish Public Library.
While WITTY was devoted to education, he also loved music, colleagues said. And he had a soft spot for a good joke.
"He had a great repertoire of hilarious stories," EPSTEIN said.
"It was impossible to follow him on stage because he had a booming presence," FARBER said. "He would tell a joke and when he left the stage people were still laughing."
WITTY used humour to reach out to people. "He was able to communicate with people in their language," FARBER said.
"He didn't speak at people. He spoke to people."
A memorial service for WITTY was held yesterday at the Clanton Park Synagogue. The funeral will be held today in Israel.
WITTY leaves his wife Shulamith, their four children and 22 grandchildren.
He will be greatly mourned by Jewish educators, and the students who benefited from his teaching.
Said FARBER: "He was a father of Jewish education in Canada."

Oro woman stabbed to death
University student attacked in Ottawa apartment
By Andrew SEYMOUR, Saturday, December 10, 2005
Ottawa A 21-year-old Oro Station woman studying at the University of Ottawa was stabbed to death after answering the door to her basement apartment around 5: 30 p.m. Thursday.
Kleigh CUNDALL, who was on the phone with her boyfriend at the time, put the phone down to go to the door and was attacked by a knife-wielding assailant.
Hearing her screams over the phone, CUNDALL's panicked boyfriend immediately hung up and called 911, said Ottawa police Sgt. Ron BOS.
CUNDALL's upstairs neighbour, hearing the screams, came down to see what was happening, only to discover the man still stabbing her. The neighbour retreated from the scene and dialled 911.
Police officers who raced to the house on Queen Victoria Street kicked down the front door, guns drawn. Inside the apartment, they found CUNDALL who had been stabbed 20 times in the neck, chest and back and her alleged attacker.
Police said they believed the two knew each other.
CUNDALL, who had no vital signs when paramedics arrived, was later pronounced dead at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital.
Police arrested Anthony ROACH, 21, of Barrie at the scene. He was moved to the same hospital, where he remained yesterday under police guard.
Police said ROACH apparently overdosed on Aspirin, and possibly other drugs, after CUNDALL was stabbed and before officers arrived on the scene.
Major crime detectives have yet to lay any charges against ROACH, instead waiting until he is released from hospital. He is expected to recover from the overdose.
CUNDALL was a fourth-year biochemistry student who planned to attend medical school and become a general practitioner, her friend Lyndsay BUEHLER said Thursday night.
She had an amazing future ahead of her, she said.
BUEHLER, a member of the university-based Ottawa Christian Fellowship, said CUNDALL had been a member of the group for at least three years.
BUEHLER said CUNDALL loved curling, which she would teach to others in the school group of about 30 members.
I knew her as a very friendly person who was quiet, but willing to talk to whoever was there, she said, stunned by the news.
Neighbours also said they were shocked. A couple who lives across the street said they would often see CUNDALL coming and going to school.
They said she rented the apartment for the past two years.
We knew she was living alone, and we said to her one time, If you ever need anything, give us a call, said Rick FINDLAY.
She looked like a real sweetheart, added Ida FINDLAY. She was always quiet
Another neighbour, Miriam FARBIASZ, arrived home around 8: 30 p.m. and heard the news.
Im just horrified. Shes only been here for a few years now, and she certainly has been the nicest of neighbours. She was very quiet, and seemed like a sensible young lady.
CUNDALLs boyfriend, Joshua FLETCHER, was exiting Highway 417 in Ottawa and talking to her as he made his way through traffic en route to her apartment when all hell broke loose at the other end of the line.
He told his father CUNDALL heard someone at her door and asked her boyfriend to hang on just a minute while she went to see who it was.
The next thing he heard was his girlfriends shrieks as her attacker flailed at her with a knife.
And then he lost the connection.
Now frantic, the man repeatedly hit redial on his cellphone, hoping CUNDALL would pick up and tell him what was happening.
He called 911 and drove to the apartment, where he found several police cars.
The only thing that matters to me right now is that we help Joshua in the grieving process, said his father, Bob FLETCHER, yesterday.
Kleigh's parents are grieving, everyone is grieving, he said. Life will never be the same for anyone associated with this.
The Ottawa Citizen
