Couriers honour mentor
City's oldest messenger dies on job
More than 100 attend impromptu wake
By Sikander Z. HASHMI, Staff Reporter, Page B3
He was their mentor, their "grandfather."
They were his life.
More than 100 bike couriers working in the city's core came out to remember Bob BYERS, who died Thursday while on the job. He was 58.
"I'm blown away," said Jim BYERS, " Biker Bob's" younger brother, as the crowd gathered on the sidewalk in front of the Duke of Richmond on James St. BYERS died on Thursday afternoon of what his Friends believe was likely a massive heart attack.
John, a courier who didn't want to give his last name, recalls passing BYERS at the corner of Queen St. W. and James St. that afternoon and saying "Hi." About 10 minutes later, BYERS reportedly turned purple and collapsed. He died soon after.
The crowd of couriers, dispatchers, drivers and walkers gathered to pay their respects to BYERS and to have "a beer for Bob."
"We're gonna... send him off peacefully to heaven, where he belongs," said Eric WUTTUNEE, one of the organizers of the wake for BYERS, who had been a courier for 18 years.
There's no question that BYERS was a giant in the courier community. A gentle giant.
"He was a great guy all around," said WUTTUNEE.
"He was always more compassionate to younger guys coming on the road, always trying to give them the lowdown of the do's and don'ts as a courier.
"No matter what age you were, he'd always talk to you as if you were the same age as him."
It's believed that BYERS was the oldest courier in town.
"I will forever be a rookie to this guy," said a courier, who didn't want his name used.
"He was always in a good mood," said another.
"Fiercely independent" is how Jim described BYERS. "He was the family hermit."
But that didn't diminish his fondness for his brother.
"He was completely invincible till yesterday," Jim BYERS said.
Kip GORDON said his uncle's biggest fear was to become incapacitated before he died.
"He just wanted to ride."
But there was no riding or driving on Queen St. for a couple of minutes as the couriers took to the street and lay down their bikes in memory of BYERS.
"It was a hero's goodbye, I guess," GORDON said.

Shootings 'spike' as 3 slain
Police downplay violence as third victim shot to death
Man gunned down through closed door of his apartment
By Sikander Z. HASHMI and Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporters
Three fatal shootings in 12 hours have jolted the city and left a neighbourhood in fear, but police are downplaying the most recent rash of violence.
"When a spike like that happens in the year, we have to remember that this stuff does level out over the average year," Toronto police Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE told a news conference yesterday.
Besides the two fatal shootings Saturday, a man was shot dead yesterday at Yonge-Dundas Square at Yonge and Dundas Sts.
The first shooting death, the city's 36th homicide of the year, occurred Saturday afternoon on Flemington Rd., near Lawrence Ave. and Allen Rd., in an area that saw two shootings last week. Police do not believe the incidents are related.
Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, was gunned down as he came to answer the door at his Lawrence Heights apartment. A 10-year-old boy inside the apartment, whose relationship to the victim police wouldn't disclose, called 911. Police say the shots were fired through the closed door and do not know if WHITTAKER was the intended victim.
"The aggravating factor obviously in this case is first of all the indiscriminate use of a firearm, firing through the door of the apartment when there was really no way to know who was on the other side," said McGUIRE.
Police are looking for two men between the ages of 25 and 30. One is tall with a thin build and was wearing a white do-rag on his head. The other is shorter than the first suspect and has a stocky build.
"I can't believe someone would go kill that poor innocent man," said a former neighbour. "He's so innocent. That man give trouble to no one."
Yesterday, police tape blocked off an area marked by a large dried bloodstain in front of the victim's apartment as two officers kept watch. Drops of dried blood marked the stairs leading to the floor.
Fearful neighbours barely raised their voices as they spoke about what happened.
A nearby neighbour, who also didn't want to be identified, trembled as she recounted Saturday's events. She had just returned from shopping and had noticed two men standing outside the victim's door. A few minutes later, shots rang out, followed by sirens.
There is no way she can continue to live in the area, she said.
"I'm outta here," said the 46-year-old. "I don't care how, (even) if I have to go to a shelter. I'm not living here."
Candice HEWSTON, 21, a mother of three young children who lives four doors away from the crime scene, was scared and said she had been looking to move before Saturday's incident due to violence in the past.
Over on Dorney Court, the scene of the two shootings last week, there was as much frustration as fear.
"It's just ridiculous," said a mother of three who refused to be identified. "Nobody feels safe around here any more.
"I don't care about myself, but my kids, they have to go through that, you know. It's traumatizing for them."
In the second homicide of the weekend, a 26-year-old man from Sri Lanka, gunned down late Saturday night in a Scarborough parking lot, may have been shot moments after leaving a bank machine.
Police discovered the body of Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH when they arrived at the scene at the rear of a professional building at the northeast corner of Warden and Finch Aves.
It's too early to comment on what may have led to THIYAGARAJAH's slaying, said McGUIRE. " There was a group of people around and something may have happened."
McGUIRE said police received a call about 11: 50 p.m. on Saturday that gunshots had been heard at the location, which is directly across from Bridlewood Mall.
"In the parking lot they found the victim lying on the ground, obviously badly injured and there were four or five people standing around at the time who have all been interviewed," McGUIRE said.
Police said THIYAGARAJAH wasn't known to them and that he lived in Scarborough.
McGUIRE said he was found at the base of a light standard in the well-lit parking lot.
"It's an area known for people to congregate in the evenings, hanging around," McGUIRE said. "In particular it's our understanding there were a number of people standing at the bus stop at Warden and Finch.... We expect they would have been in position to see or hear something which may add to the investigation, and we would ask that they also come forward."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the entire strip mall yesterday, including a large parking lot at the rear of the four-storey professional building at 3420 Finch Ave. E., which houses many medical and dental offices.
More than a dozen evidence markers had been placed in an area of the parking lot immediately in front of the entrance to several automated teller machines at a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce bank as forensic investigators meticulously examined the parking lot for clues.
Police said they were also checking to see if any of the businesses in the area had video surveillance that may have captured the shooting.

Watch, don't run, riders told
Toronto Transit Commission, police launch safety drive for motorists, pedestrians
Woman, 27, struck and killed by car while running for a bus
By Sikander Z. HASHMI and Hilda HOY, Staff Reporters
Take the time to check.
Tragically, that message -- part of a safety drive by Toronto police and the Toronto Transit Commission this week -- came too late for a young woman struck and killed in Scarborough just hours before the launch of the campaign.
Bonnie HO, 26, was rushing to catch her bus just before 7 a.m. yesterday. She reportedly ran against a red light from the southeast corner of Steeles and Kelvin Grove Aves., near her home, and was hit by a taxi.
Suffering massive head injuries, HO was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
In a one-week campaign aimed at preventing such accidents, officers are paying particular attention to infractions by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians that impede transit, especially around bus and streetcar stops, high-occupancy vehicle lanes and Wheel Trans vehicles.
Toronto police Sgt. Tony LAWSON advises pedestrians to stay alert and be cautious when stepping on to roads.
"Most fatalities involving pedestrians occur on the roadway, not on sidewalks," he points out. "It's usually the pedestrian rushing to something."
Most of the time, streetcar commuters have to step on to the roadway when hopping on or off the Toronto Transit Commission. One person a month is struck while leaving a streetcar, according to Const. Barb RYAN of the traffic safety program. But it's a wonder the rate is that low, considering how many motorists don't bother to stop behind open streetcar doors as the law requires.
"Toronto Transit Commission operators, themselves, report up to 80 incidents a day where motor vehicles pass the open doors of a streetcar, I guess in an attempt to race by," RYAN says. "Those could all end up in injuries or a calamity of some description."
That's the reason the campaign is emphasizing streetcar safety, she says, "because of the fact that they're not curbside."
At least one streetcar rider thinks that should be changed.
"It'd be nice to have (the streetcars) on the other side of the street," says Vanessa LEE, 26.
witnessing one rider being hit by a car was enough to persuade Umar TURNER to make a habit to check not once, but twice, when getting off a streetcar.
"I was right behind this lady," recalls the 26-year-old, "and she stepped off. I guess she didn't really look and a car came by and hit her.
"Because of that, every time I get off the streetcar, I always make sure to double-check."
TURNER says he often sees the streetcar stop and cars speed by.
Lee ZASLOFSKY, 60, has also witnessed cars whizzing by open streetcar doors but hasn't seen anyone get hit. He welcomes the awareness campaign, saying drivers need a reminder to be careful.
"I'm glad the police are doing this," he said while waiting for a streetcar at the corner of Yonge and Queen Sts.
"The people getting off are completely innocent. They may be a little careless, but the penalty could be death, whereas the guy in the car has a lifetime of guilt."
RYAN urges commuters to just take a moment to make sure they're not stepping directly into the path of an oncoming car. "Take that extra second... to check before you're going to jump into a live lane of traffic."
She has a piece of advice for drivers as well: "If you're a motorist... give them an extra second, because lots of times, people change their minds. They're on, then they want to get off, and the Toronto Transit Commission vehicle may have to come to a sudden stop."
Lisa TAILOR/TAYLOR, who was waiting for the Queen streetcar yesterday, recently saw a man nearly hit by a car as he was leaving the streetcar.
"The drivers here in Toronto... are very erratic," says TAILOR/TAYLOR, 33. "They don't look where they're going."
If the risk to innocent pedestrians isn't enough to convince motorists to be more careful, the penalty for being careless should. Passing an open streetcar door can set you back at least $110, plus three demerit points.

A champion for 'little people'
Al HOLLINGWORTH 'gave himself to everybody else'
Lawyer, judge, politician a caring representative
By Sikander Z. HASHMI, Staff Reporter
It's not too often that a lawyer has a client walk into the office brandishing a handgun.
But, Allan HOLLINGWORTH was faced with that very scenario, according to long-time friend and colleague, retired senator Richard STANBURY.
The upset gunman strolled into HOLLINGWORTH's office where the two remained for 15 minutes. They walked out together, with HOLLINGWORTH consoling the gunman, arms around his shoulders.
Allan Henry HOLLINGWORTH, who went from being an intelligence officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force to the judicial bench, with stops as a lawyer and a parliamentarian, died August 16. He was 86.
"He always saw himself as the spokesman for the 'little people,'" said STANBURY. "No wonder he had Friends in every walk of life."
Born and raised in Brockville, HOLLINGWORTH earned bachelor of commerce and bachelor of arts degrees at Queen's University in four years. After leaving the air force, he graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1948 and opened his law practice on Avenue Rd. in North York.
HOLLINGWORTH was soon elected to the school board and a year later was voted into township council. In 1953, HOLLINGWORTH was sent to Ottawa as Liberal member of Parliament for York Centre.
HOLLINGWORTH earned a reputation as a caring and effective representative for his constituents. STANBURY recalled the time when people were flocking to new subdivisions in York Centre, but with no mail delivery they had to travel miles to fetch their letters from the post office.
"Al HOLLINGWORTH tried to persuade the post office to extend house-to-house mail delivery to these new homes," but to no avail, said STANBURY.
But, HOLLINGWORTH wouldn't give up. "He got the personal phone number of the postmaster general and called him every morning at 9 o'clock until he finally got house-to-house delivery established."
HOLLINGWORTH cared equally about national and international issues. He was one of the first to speak in the Commons about the need for Canada to have its own flag and he promoted Canada's foreign policy. But in 1957, HOLLINGWORTH fell victim to the "Diefenbaker Sweep" that saw the Liberal government replaced by the Conservatives under John Diefenbaker.
"It took Al six months to accept that... his constituents were not really disappointed in him," said STANBURY.
Despite his preoccupation with his career, HOLLINGWORTH was a devoted family man who loved life, said daughter Roxanne, 54.
"He would always be there and have time for me no matter what. He was just a loving, gentle, sweet man who gave up himself selflessly to his family and to everybody else."
In 1973, HOLLINGWORTH was appointed to Peel County court and four years later was promoted to the then-Supreme Court of Ontario. He remained on the bench until 1997.
HOLLINGWORTH was fluent in French, thanks in part to his French-Canadian wife Veronica, and was assigned to French-speaking cases.
He was also proficient in German, Spanish, and Italian, languages he mainly picked up by hearing interpreters in his courtroom and then studying the language at home.
But he didn't stop there, according to Roxanne. HOLLINGWORTH would attempt to speak "whatever language he could to whomever he could."
At age 80, HOLLINGWORTH was introduced to the Internet and spent hours listening to Spanish radio stations online to perfect his command of the language.
According to STANBURY, HOLLINGWORTH's English was "wonderful" and he was always trying to find unusual yet expressive words for his discourses in Parliament and in the courts.
"They were masterpieces of English and were almost always upheld in appeal," recalled HOLLINGWORTH's former law partner. "He was very proud of that."
HOLLINGWORTH's interest in and tolerance for other cultures was exemplary, said Roxanne.
"He just accepted everybody and just wanted to know so much more about everybody. He just thought the world was a place where everybody should get along and everybody should learn about each other, because when you start to learn about people, you realize that we're all the same."
HOLLINGWORTH was very active physically, working out for 1 1/2 hours every morning until three years ago. He played tennis as long as his heath allowed it, and he also skied and swam.
HOLLINGWORTH leaves wife Veronica and two daughters, Michelle, and her husband Curtis BASLER of Calgary, and Roxanne HOLLINGWORTH of Toronto.
