Valerie GORE
By Jeff BUCKSTEIN, Friday, September 16, 2005, Page A22
Wife, mother, friend, teacher, transplant recipient. Born September 26, 1947, in Toronto. Died March 8 in Toronto of complications from pulmonary fibrosis, aged 57.
Ask anyone who knew Valerie GORE and they will tell you without hesitation that one of the reasons she was universally adored was because of her selfless devotion to family, Friends, and teaching.
Born in Toronto in 1947, Valerie grew up in a strong, close-knit family with parents Peter Sr. and May BUCHANAN, and older brother Peter. Val attended York Memorial Collegiate in the city's west end, where she easily forged many Friendships -- some of which would last for decades.
She also managed to catch the eye of a Runnymede Collegiate student. Craig GORE became smitten with Val and asked her out after the two ran into each other on a couple of occasions during the summer of 1964; first at the pool where Craig was a lifeguard and then again at the drugstore where Val worked. The two were destined to enjoy a long and successful marriage.
After graduating in 1966, Valerie went into teaching -- a profession ideally suited to her stellar interpersonal skills, ever-present smile and genuine warmth. She began her career in 1967 and over the span of nearly 30 years taught at Melody Road Public School and Beaumonde Heights Junior Middle School in Toronto.
A couple of years ago, when asked about the accomplishment she was most proud of in life, Valerie said that marrying Craig in 1969, and having two beautiful daughters -- Kerry Lee in 1975 and Heather in 1977 -- topped the list.
Heather recalls how her mother always liked to organize family events, such as birthdays or Easter, as "over-the-top celebrations." Val brought the girls as teaching assistants when she taught summer school, let them wear her fancy nightgowns, and was always there for them.
Valerie was always there for her Friends, too, putting her cooking skills and baking talent to good use at numerous social events, including an annual Christmas party at her Toronto home.
In 1995, Valerie received a tough break. She was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, an often-fatal lung disease -- which, in her case, was caused by a rare, accumulated allergic reaction to having owned several pet birds throughout her life.
Val's only hope, as her health rapidly declined and she became oxygen-dependent, was a double-lung transplant. This finally came on Mother's Day in 2000. But by 2003, Valerie was again dependent on oxygen, and knew that her time was probably limited. She made the most of it and was grateful for the opportunity to see Heather graduate from law school, to visit her brother Peter and his family in Prince Edward Island, to get Maggie, the cocker spaniel puppy she'd always wanted, and, most of all, to be part of her precious daughters' move into their own condominium.
Val always had a smile and was full of life, even when in extreme pain.
In her last conversation with Kerry, Valerie acknowledged that while family and Friends would be sad at her passing, she didn't want anybody to feel sorry about the hand fate dealt her.
"Being sad is very different from being sorry," she said, ending the discussion with the words Craig, Kerry and Heather heard every day, "I love you."
And that love was reciprocated, especially as Val's illness took its devastating toll.
After Valerie died, it was expected that about 75 people would attend her funeral service. Instead, close to 300 family members, Friends and former teaching colleagues and students showed up to say good-bye. And that would have made Val very happy.
Jeff BUCKSTEIN is Valerie's friend.

Two crashes on same day leave 3 dead
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Three motorists were killed in London-region crashes yesterday, raising the area's road death toll to four in less than 24 hours. - In London, a man and woman died after the car they were in hit a tree at Woodhull Road and Gideon Drive in the west end, east of Kilworth, about 2: 30 p.m.
- Four hours later, a Sarnia woman was killed when the van she was driving collided with an empty school bus near Reeces Corners, in Lambton County. The bus driver was in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police hadn't identified the victims of the latest crashes, which followed the death of a Saint Marys man in a high-speed crash north of London late Tuesday.
Jason NEUFELD, 29, died when the car he was driving collided head-on with another car on Adelaide Street, north of Medway Road. The driver of the other car, a 48-year-old Zurich woman, remained in critical condition in a London hospital yesterday.
Police said snow was blanketing the road at the time of yesterday's fatal crash in London.
A neighbour heard the crash and called 911, police said. Animal officials removed a hurt dog found at the scene.
Neighbour Dave GORMAN said he was home when he heard a "faint clunk."
"It looked to me like the car was airborne and hit a tree," he said.
Police probing Tuesday's fatal crash on the city's outskirts said NEUFELD was speeding on Adelaide when his vehicle crossed into another lane and struck the other car.
NEUFELD had a two-year-old son, his uncle, Brad NEUFELD, said yesterday.
The oldest of five children, NEUFELD's family is still reeling from the accidental death at home of his younger brother, Jarret, 22, who died five months ago.
That, and a breakup with a longtime girlfriend, had left NEUFELD down and withdrawn, his uncle said.
Those close to him knew Jason NEUFELD as a soft-hearted man who loved golf, PlayStation and darts, he said.
NEUFELD also liked to "tinker with cars" and had got the car he was driving only the month before the fatal crash, Brad NEUFELD said.

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.

Alex SMART, Hockey Player: 1918-2005
Left winger from the minors set a scoring record in his first National Hockey League game that still stands
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, June 3, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- Alex SMART burst into the National Hockey League like a meteor. In his very first game, on January 14, 1943, he defeated the Chicago Black Hawks single-handed by scoring three goals for the Montreal Canadiens.
His first two goals, scored in the final minute of the second period, came only 14 seconds apart; the third goal occurred in the third period. Final score: Canadiens 5, Black Hawks 1. Along the way, he also racked up an assist. Then 24 and on loan to the Habs from the Montreal Senior Canadiens of the Quebec Senior Hockey League, he set a benchmark for goals scored by a rookie in his first National Hockey League game. The record, which was tied by Real Cloutier of the Quebec Nordiques in 1979, still stands.
Montreal's daily newspapers were delighted. "Amateur Alex SMART Paces Canadiens to Brilliant 5-1 Victory," crowed the The Gazette the following day. Veteran Montreal hockey reporter Baz O'Meara described Mr. SMART, who played left wing, as "a smooth skater with an accent of speed. He is solid enough despite his rather frail appearance, one of those sinewy fellows who shed body checks easily, who is effortless in the extreme."
Mr. SMART, who scored his four points against Chicago goaltender Bert Gardiner, played with Buddy O'Connor and Gordie Drillon. They accounted for four of Montreal's five goals.
Joe GORMAN of Ottawa, the son of Canadiens' general manager, Tommy GORMAN, was in the Forum that night. "Alex impressed me because he was a natural left winger and played his position. Buddy O'Connor was able to feed him passes from centre."
One person who wasn't present in the crowd of 6,549 was Mr. SMART's wife of seven months, Freda. "He was so nervous he didn't want me to go. I went to the show at the Seville Theatre with my girlfriend (instead). I found out what he had done that night when he came home. I couldn't believe it."
Mr. SMART continued to burn up the National Hockey League for another seven games, scoring a total of five goals and two assists, for seven points in eight games. Fellow rookie Maurice "Rocket" Richard needed twice as many games as Mr. SMART to score five goals and six assists before he broke his leg, ending his season. The Rocket, of course, eventually scored 624 goals and hall-of-fame immortality while Mr. SMART found himself back in the minors.
Mr. SMART developed his skills in southern Manitoba during the 1930s. After playing for the Toronto Marlboros and the Verdun Maple Leafs in Montreal, he landed a spot with the Senior Canadiens in 1940. Over the next six years, he scored 86 goals and 188 points over 183 games, some of which were in the service of the Montreal Royals and Montreal Vickers.
It was also in 1940 that he met his wife Freda. "I was going to O'Sullivan Business Collage and he saw me every day. He found out that a girl who lived where he boarded knew me and asked her to arrange an introduction."
To break the ice, Mr. SMART asked Freda -- who wasn't "the least bit interested in hockey" -- if she'd like to attend a game. "He said, 'here's two tickets.' I said, 'I thought I was going with you.' He said, 'no, I'm playing.' "
Mr. SMART and his Senior Canadiens won the game and "from then on, I watched a lot of hockey games," said Mrs. SMART. They were married the day after his 24th birthday. "I told him I was his birthday present."
After the war, Mr. SMART got a job in Ottawa with the Goodyear Tire Company, where he worked for 45 years. He still loved playing hockey and found a spot with the Ottawa Senators of the Quebec league. Over the next four seasons, he was one of the Senator's best point getters. In 1947-48, his best year, Mr. SMART scored 28 goals and 66 points in 47 games.
Besides his eight games in the National Hockey League, the highlight of Mr. SMART's hockey career occurred in the spring of 1949 when the Senators beat the Regina Caps to win the Allan Cup as the best senior amateur club in Canada. They had lost to the Edmonton Flyers the preceding year.
The Senators, all of whom had full-time jobs, were a powerhouse right after the war. The roster included such names as George GREENE, Emile DAGENAIS, Jack McLEAN, Stu SMITH, Legs FRASER, Ray TRAINOR and Ab RENAUD, who, as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force Flyers, had won a gold medal at the 1948 Winter Olympics.
After he retired as a player, Mr. SMART coached at the local level in Ottawa. He also scouted for the Los Angeles Kings for 25 years.
Alexander SMART was born on May 29, 1918, in Brandon, Manitoba He died of heart disease on April 18, 2005, in Ottawa. He was 86. He leaves his wife, Freda, and daughter Susan. He was predeceased by his daughter Donna Jean.
