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.

Ted LIGHT, Military Chaplain 1914-2005
His faith -- sorely tested by what he witnessed in the Second World War -- was restored by a little German girl. He went on to become general secretary of the Anglican Church
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, June 13, 2005, Page S6
As a chaplain serving overseas during the Second World War, it was customary for Ted LIGHT to wave off a bomber from the airfield as it set out on a raid and to be there once again after a long, agonizing wait to see how many men returned.
The bomber's return wasn't always a happy homecoming. On one occasion, Mr. LIGHT was on an airfield in Yorkshire, England, watching as a damaged bomber struggled to make its way back to the base. The plane crashed on landing and caught fire. Mr. LIGHT, along with others, rushed to the plane in an attempt to save the men on board. One man was clearly dying. Mr. LIGHT knelt down to give him his last rites. As he did, he placed a cherished crucifix, given to him by a Roman Catholic priest, into the dying man's hand. The hand closed around it and the man died. Mr. LIGHT left the crucifix with him.
Edwin LIGHT was born on a homestead in northern Saskatchewan. When he was 3, his family moved to Leask, Saskatchewan., a village on the Canadian National Railway line from Prince Albert to North Battleford. Every Sunday he, along with his parents, three brothers and three sisters, attended the local Anglican church.
In 1933, he went off to study theology at Emmanuel College, University of Saskatchewan. After graduation he was ordained as a deacon and put in charge of a county parish in northern Saskatchewan. In 1939, he was ordained as a priest.
Mr. LIGHT was the first in his family to enter the priesthood. "I didn't have what you might call a Damascus road experience," he told the Canadian Churchman (predecessor to the Anglican Journal) in a 1979 interview. "I really wanted to work with people and I thought I could best fulfill that vocation through the church."
When the Second World War broke out, Mr. LIGHT enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force "because all the young men were leaving." He felt it was something he, too, should do. "I was a young man and felt that personally... if I missed out on the experience the majority of young men in Canada were facing in the military forces because of war, that I would have a great deal of difficulty relating to them when the war was over," he is recorded as saying in documents from the Anglican Church House.
When he failed to become a pilot because he couldn't land planes properly, he decided to train as an air bomber. Before he finished his training, Mr. LIGHT was drafted into the chaplaincy service in Canada and then overseas.
In January, 1943, he was posted as chaplain to No. 2 Bombing and Gunnery School in Mossbank, Saskatchewan. The following year he was sent overseas, where he served as chaplain to Bomber Squadrons 420 and 425 until the war's end.
Knowing it was strictly against orders, Mr. LIGHT got himself smuggled aboard an aircraft on one occasion just so he could experience what the air crews he worked and lived with went through. He went on a bombing raid over the Ruhr Valley in Germany and later admitted that he was "scared stiff" by the experience. Among his duties as a wartime chaplain was writing to the next of kin of servicemen who were either killed in combat or missing in action.
But the war for Mr. LIGHT wasn't all about death and destruction, it was also a time when he would meet and within 10 weeks marry his future wife, Evelyn. It was Christmas in 1942 and Mr. LIGHT was travelling by train from Prince Albert to his home in Leask. It was an overnight train and sleeping berths were scarce. Some time in the evening, the porter called out: "Berth for Leask." Mr. LIGHT believed the announcement was for him, and Evelyn, whose last name was Leask, assumed it was for her. The porter's announcement brought them face to face.
After spending Christmas with their families, they left home and met once again on the same train returning to Prince Albert. Speculation is that it may have been more than a coincidence, said Mr. LIGHT's son, Greg. On the train, they agreed to spend New Year's Eve together. They fell in love and were married on March 16, 1943.
Mr. LIGHT served in Germany until October, 1945. At the war's end, having been witness to the horrors of war, his faith was tested. Having seen the destruction and death -- corpses piled up at the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp, German amputees and prisoners of war -- Mr. LIGHT wondered where the world could go from there. "It shook one's faith in whether humanity could ever establish itself again -- whether generosity and kindness were really viable," he said.
He later credited a little German girl with few personal belongings for having restored his faith in humanity. He met her in a small German village and gave her a piece of candy. She thanked him and returned soon after with a parcel wrapped in newspaper. Inside the package were a couple of plums from her family's garden.
After the war, Mr. LIGHT worked briefly as a reporter for the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix before returning to the Canadian Forces, where he became chaplain to military detachments along the Alaska Highway from Fort Saint John to Snag on the Alaska border.
Mr. LIGHT's career in the forces included a stint as assistant director in the Air Force chaplaincy in Ottawa, as command chaplain of Canada's North Atlantic Treaty Organization forces stationed in France, and eventually as chaplain-general. He earned the rank of brigadier-general and was responsible for some 130 chaplains in the country's army, navy and air force.
"He felt a strong sense of journeying with our personnel, of going where they go and caring for the families who are left behind," said Lieutenant-Colonel John FLETCHER, the army's command chaplain.
In 1968, Mr. LIGHT retired from the military to become general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, a position he held until his retirement in 1979. He also served on numerous national and international organizations, including the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches. After retirement, Mr. LIGHT and his wife moved to the Ontario town of Meaford.
In retirement, he remained active with the Anglican Church's provincial synod, in his local parish and as chaplain to Branch 32 of the Royal Canadian Legion.
Mr. LIGHT died on May 21 at Toronto Grace Hospital. He had prostate cancer. His wife of 62 years died just more than a week later in the same hospital. She had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. During their final days in the hospital, they lived in separate rooms on separate floors, but each day they were brought to each other so they could spend time together.
"He was inspiring," Col. FLETCHER said. " LIGHT wasn't just his last name. There was a light that shined deep within. He had a tremendous spirit."
Ted LIGHT was born in northern Saskatchewan on March 19, 1914. He died in Toronto on May 21, 2005. He was 91. He leaves his sons, Gordon, a bishop in the central interior of British Columbia, Ted, Greg, and Brian; sister Doris and 15 grandchildren.

Muskoka constable killed, partner injured as cruiser hits moose
By Rob SHAW, Thursday, July 21, 2005, Page A10
The town of Bracebridge is known as the "heart of Muskoka," but for many in the small community, yesterday was simply a heartbreaking day.
A well-known local Ontario Provincial Police constable was killed, and his partner injured, when their cruiser collided with a moose at around 2: 30 a.m. while the two were en route to a domestic dispute call.
Twenty-nine-year-old Andrew POTTS, known to Friends as Andy, was pronounced dead at the scene.
His partner, 39-year-old Matt HANES, was airlifted to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto where he was in serious but stable condition, police said yesterday afternoon.
Constable POTTS, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle enthusiast, was born and raised in the Muskoka-Bracebridge area. He was, said his colleague and friend Constable Ted SMITH, a nice guy to talk to. He was a good listener, and had a good sense of humour."
He leaves his parents, a sister and his girlfriend.
The accident shocked and saddened the 65-officer Bracebridge Muskoka police detachment and the surrounding community, said Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Gwen BONIFACE, who was on scene by 5 a.m. in an area that is at least two hours north of Toronto.
"It's a terrible collision, an odd set of circumstances, and a tremendous loss for us," Ms. BONIFACE said. "Andy POTTS was from this area, he grew up in this community, and you can feel, not just in this detachment but from the response we've had in the community today, that this is being really felt right across the Muskoka area.
"Obviously, a collision with a moose is rare, but that's what we do -- every day we're out there driving. I know there are officers who will step back today and say, 'There but for the grace of God go I.' "
Constable POTTS is the first on-duty Ontario Provincial Police officer to be killed this year, and the 90th in the organization's history. The last time an officer was killed in an accident involving a moose was in 1963 near North Bay. The last five Ontario Provincial Police deaths have been as a result of motor vehicle accidents.
Bracebridge was where Constable POTTS most wanted to be, Constable SMITH said. The seven-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran spent two years at the Pickle Lake detachment in Northwestern Ontario before returning to his hometown detachment.
"This is the type of guy, who is a solid officer, who you wanted to go to calls with because you knew he was there to back you up if you had any problems," Constable SMITH said.
His on-duty partner, Constable HANES, is a 14-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran who is married with three young children.
The exact cause of the accident is still unknown, police said, although the night was foggy and the moose was standing on Highway 169 as the officers travelled west to the domestic dispute near Bala.
Fall is usually the peak season for moose accidents, but because the animals are heat-sensitive, they are likely travelling during the cool nighttime hours to cope with the recent heat wave, Howard SMITH, senior biologist at the Ministry of Natural Resources, said.
Moose can be naturally attracted to highways because they represent the edge of a forest, and they often choose not to move as a vehicle approaches, he said.
An investigation into the crash is under way. Constable SMITH would not say if the cruiser was travelling quickly, or if it had its emergency lights on.
"A moose is probably one of the most dangerous of all animals to run into," said Bruce LEESON, senior environmental assessment scientist with Parks Canada.
"It has such tall legs, you don't actually hit the body, you hit the legs and it comes across the hood and then takes off the roof of the car," Dr. LEESON said.
It is the equivalent of running head-on into the back of a tractor-trailer, said Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Jerry BLACE, who has seen the results of such accidents.
You have a 1-in-200 chance of being killed if you hit a moose with your car, compared to a 1-in-3,500 chance if you hit a deer, according to data from the U.S. National Co-Operative Highway Research Program.
Canadian member of Parliament Steven FLETCHER hit a moose and survived north of Winnipeg in 1996, but he now uses a wheelchair due to injuries he suffered in the collision. He became the first quadriplegic elected to Parliament in the last federal election.
The most recent Transport Canada report, from March of 2003, said that four to eight collisions of large animals and vehicles happen every hour in Canada.
Ontario has an estimated 115,000 moose, most of them in the northern part of the province.

Donald HARRISON, Sailor And Physician (1925-2005)
A naval veteran and doctor, he travelled the North to care for Inuit in remote settlements and helped suppress a tuberculosis epidemic
By Tammy LABER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, September 15, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Donald HARRISON helped reduce tuberculosis among the Inuit from near-epidemic proportions. In 1962 and 1965, he served as medical officer aboard the C.D. Howe, a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker that patrolled the Eastern Arctic.
He was part of a medical party of four doctors, two nurses, several interpreters and support staff. Each season, they covered about 18,000 kilometres of the North in search of the disease. With the help of his colleagues, he examined almost every inhabitant of Canada's 30 northern-most communities, some merely Hudson's Bay outposts, in such areas of the Eastern Arctic as the Hudson Strait, the Queen Elizabeth Islands and Baffin Island.
Tuberculosis "was the smallpox of the time," said his daughter Helen HARRISON, a historian for the federal government in Ottawa. For years, tuberculosis had raged across the North, where it had infected thousands of Inuit. In the early part of last century, an epidemic had taken authorities by surprise. According to Health Canada, it is probable that First Nations people had less immunity to European strains of tuberculosis, and lacked drugs to cure the disease. By the 1950s, tuberculosis remained a serious problem, fuelled by overcrowding and poor diets that mostly depended on caribou meat. Just 10 years earlier, the annual risk of infection had been among the highest in the world at 25 per cent a year. The disease had scourged the Arctic, claiming more than 700 victims for every 100,000 people, a death rate that remains among the highest ever recorded. In small children, mortality from tuberculosis meningitis was anywhere from 500 to 2,000 per 100,000. Among their older brothers and sisters in residential schools, the death rate approached a staggering 8,000 per 100,000.
By the time Dr. HARRISON arrived in the North, the disease had been largely brought under control. Unlike Greenland and Alaska, where tuberculosis was still an enormous problem, Canada had launched a massive prevention program that combined direct vaccination and oral medication with the result that the mortality rate had dropped to a fraction of that seen during the horror years.
Even so, studies showed that First Nations peoples remained eight times more likely to come down with tuberculosis than other Canadians and Dr. HARRISON's team feared another epidemic.
During his first visit, every person he examined was given a chest X-ray, which was checked by the radiologist in the medical party. Almost without exception, the population of each settlement showed up to be examined. If active tuberculosis was detected, the patient was hospitalized on board and later taken to a sanitarium in the South. In all, 75 Inuit patients out of 2,500 examined were taken from their communities in this manner. The Inuit were generally willing to be moved, because they had seen seriously ill relatives leave on the ship only to return "well and healthy a year or two later," Dr. HARRISON once remarked.
Indeed, the strategy seemed to have some effect in stopping the spread of the disease, because by his second trip, the disease had diminished in incidence.
As well as screening for tuberculosis, the Eastern Arctic Patrol performed an annual survey of the health of the Inuit. To make this possible, the C.D. Howe was equipped with an X-ray machine and a darkroom, a dispensary, an operating room, dental office and special quarters to house up to 40 Inuit patients.
Dr. HARRISON never returned to the North but the results of his work and that of the other doctors who followed him continue to be recorded. Health Canada reports that in the past 20 years, the total number of cases of tuberculosis has been falling rapidly. The mortality rate is approaching zero and the incidence rate is shrinking by a record 14 per cent each year.
Donald HARRISON grew up the son of a Toronto doctor, attended Rosedale Public School and spent summers at the family cottage on Go Home Bay near Honey Harbour, Ontario, where he learned a thing or two about how to handle a boat. He attended Upper Canada College during the war years when the school accelerated its studies, and graduated at 16. Having grown up around boats, he decided the place for him was the navy and he entered a special two-year class at the Royal Canadian Naval College. By 19, he landed on the deck of a glamorous and dashing motor torpedo boat as the junior officer and navigator.
By all accounts, he felt at home. An motor torpedo boat, after all, was just an enlarged version of the low and lean speedboats of his youth. Measuring between 20 and 30 metres, they were enormously powerful and maneuverable weapons that could reach speeds of about 65 kilometres an hour. With a crew of three officers and about 30 men, they were powered by four Packard engines that turned out a whopping 5,000 horsepower but offered few comforts. They carried four torpedoes and a variety of deck guns and mostly worked at night. Each evening, squadrons of motor torpedo boats set off from ports in the English Channel to cause havoc among German forces and returned only in the morning.
Known to his naval Friends as "Hardtack," Dr. HARRISON was "a real gentleman, cheerful, practical and down to earth, with a ready sense of humour," says Professor Bob STAIRS, who served with him on the 65th Canadian Motor Torpedo Boat Flotilla, one of two flotillas manned by Canadians. Between 1944 and 1945, "Hardtack" served as navigator on motor torpedo boats 745 and "We patrolled the English Channel, and then the Belgian and Dutch coasts, the Scheldt Estuary and the North Sea. We would leave an hour before sunset and take a position where we could intercept anyone trying to raid our shipping," said Prof. STAIRS, who taught at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, and is now retired.
While the war at sea was winding down, danger was never far away. In February of 1945, Dr. HARRISON's flotilla was suddenly transferred overnight to Ostend, Belgium, to replace five motor torpedo boats destroyed in a gruesome refuelling fire that killed 26 Canadian sailors. He later signed up for the Pacific, but was on leave when the war ended.
After the war, he became a medical student at the University of Toronto, graduating in 1950. He decided to make a specialty of internal medicine and did five years of postgraduate work at Toronto teaching hospitals and at the Banting Institute, which is part of the University of Toronto.
While in medical school, he became reacquainted with a childhood friend, Joan FLETCHER, who was preparing for a career in medical research. Years before, they had been summer companions at Go Home Bay, where her family also had a cottage. They discovered they had much in common and one thing led to another until, in 1950, they married.
Dr. HARRISON spent six years in Deep River, a company town near Atomic Energy of Canada's Chalk River nuclear facility. This research and development laboratory was set up after the war to "promote the peaceful uses of nuclear power," said Dr. Joan HARRISON, who worked part-time at the facility.
Returning to Toronto, he conducted private practice and was a medical officer with Bell Canada for 27 years. It was during this time that Bell loaned him to the Department of National Health and Welfare to work in the North. He also made many visits to Saudi Arabia to care for Bell employees sent to install a new telecommunications system in the Kingdom.
Dr. HARRISON was a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada and demonstrated a keen sense of duty as a family physician. "We grew to dread the phone at dinner time," said his son Christopher. "Many meals were interrupted as he went out on a house call." In retirement, he also offered medical attention to cottagers who sought him out on his dock at Go Home Bay.
Sometimes, they got an earful from his bugle, an instrument with which he had become reacquainted. He had learned the bugle while in military college, where he had been assigned to playing Reveille. At Go Home Bay, he lowered the flag (the White Ensign, not "Pearson's new flag") and played The Last Post every night. To the end, he corrected other cottagers who mistook it for the American Taps.
Donald Christopher HARRISON was born in Toronto on April 5, 1925. He died of cancer at home on August 16, 2005. He was 80. He is survived by his wife, Dr. Joan HARRISON, and their four children, Michael, Christopher, David and Helen. He also leaves sisters, Mary BARNETT and Margaret CROSS, and eight grandchildren.

Student, 21 stabbed to death in Ottawa
Canadian Press, Page A25
Ottawa -- A young man is grieving the death of his 21-year-old girlfriend who was stabbed to death as he raced to her Ottawa home.
Police believe an ex-boyfriend killed K'Leigh CUNDALL at her apartment Thursday night as Joshua FLETCHER was driving to her house.
FLETCHER was talking to CUNDALL on his cellphone and turning off the highway when he heard a commotion on the other end of the line.
FLETCHER later told his father that CUNDALL heard someone at her door and asked him to "hang on just a minute" while she went to see who it was.
The next thing he heard were screams as her attacker flailed at her with a knife. And then he lost the connection.
The University of Ottawa student was stabbed 20 times in the neck, chest and back.
By the time FLETCHER arrived at her house 10 minutes later, police were already at the scene.
"The only thing that matters to me right now is that we help Joshua in the grieving process," said the boyfriend's father, Bob FLETCHER.
"K'Leigh's parents are grieving, everyone is grieving. Life will never be the same for anyone associated with this.
"They were beautiful people, with a wonderful future ahead."
Police arrested a 21-year-old man at the scene.
