Two killed in truck crash
By Chris SIMON, Thursday, August 25, 2005
Two people are dead following a two-vehicle collision near Stayner early Wednesday morning.
Ontario Provincial Police say they were not wearing seat-belts.
Kelly PERKIN, 27, of Stayner and Daniel HOULE, 23, of Stroud, died after their Ford pickup truck collided with a black 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier on Centre Line Road, north of County Road 9, in Clearview Township at about 1: 40 a.m.
Ontario Provincial Police say the truck was travelling south, when it crossed the centre line and sideswiped the car. The truck then entered a ditch and rolled several times.
A third occupant of the truck, 25-year-old Mary Kate MILLIGAN of Wasaga Beach, sustained minor injuries.
All three were ejected from the vehicle since they were not wearing seat-belts, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Julia McCUALT.
(“MILLIGAN) was very lucky, very fortunate,” she said. “They believe alcohol and speed were contributing factors at the time of this collision. Also, none of them were wearing their seat-belts.&rdquo
PERKINS was pronounced dead at the scene, while HOULE and MILLIGAN were transported to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital. HOULE was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
MILLIGAN was treated and released.
The car's driver, Jacob LALKENS, 39, of Stayner was not injured.
No charges have been laid, as the investigation continues, said McCUALT.
“They'll probably be interviewing people as the week goes on,&rdquo she said.
With several recent vehicle collision fatalities in the Barrie area -- including two along Highway 400 during the last two weeks people should understand the need to wear a seat-belt, said McCualt.
Two people that died in those collisions were not wearing seat-belts.
“Recently, (with) the fatalities on the highway, it's such a high percentage of people dying because they weren't wearing their seat-belt,” said McCUALT.
In the most recent collision, Uxbridge resident Scott BRETT, 18, died on Highway 400 last week, just outside of Barrie. Two other occupants in the car -- both 18 -- were transported to hospital.
At least three of the vehicle occupants were not wearing seat-belts when that collision occurred.

Centre Line Road crash leaves 2 dead
Speed, alcohol and lack of seatbelts all factors police say
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page 1
Two people who died in a two vehicle crash in Clearview Township early Wednesday morning weren't wearing their seatbelts.
Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said the crash, which took place around 1: 40 a.m., involved a truck and car on Centre Line Road, just north of County Rd. 9.
Investigators said a 2002 Ford pickup, heading south, sideswiped a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier that was northbound.
The truck subsequently rolled and its three passengers were ejected. None of them were wearing seatbelts, police said, adding they suspect speed and alcohol were factors in the incident.
The driver of the Ford, Kelly PERKIN, 27, of Stayner, was pronounced dead at the scene and two other occupants were transported by ambulance to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
Daniel HOULE, 23, of Stroud, died at G&M. HOULE is a former resident of Stayner. Mary MILLIGAN, 25, of Wasaga Beach, was treated for what police are calling minor injuries and released.
The operator of the other vehicle, 39-year-old Jacob LALKENS of Stayner, was not injured in the crash, police said.
The investigation continues.
Both funerals are being held Saturday, for HOULE at 11 a.m. at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, 315 Pine Street, Stayner; and for PERKIN at 1 p.m. in the chapel at Carruthers and Davidson Funeral Home, 7313 Hwy. 26, Stayner. Visitations were set for 6-9 p.m. Friday at Carruthers and Davidson Funeral Home.
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark KINNEY, in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon, said the mishap serves as a reminder about why people should buckle up.
"Studies have proven you are more safe if you are secured inside a vehicle and something happens," he said.
Last week's incident falls on the heels of a similar story that took place on August 12. Melissa GOMEZ, 21, of Toronto, died after the GMC Envoy she was a passenger in lost control on Highway 400, near Highway 89, and was struck by a Ford 500.
GOMEZ wasn't wearing a seatbelt at the time and later died at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

This didn't need to happen: driver
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
The Driver of the Chevrolet Cavalier that was sideswiped by a Ford truck on Centre line Road last week said he is sorry for the injury and death that followed, adding none of it needed to happen.
"I know it was not my fault, the police told me, but I feel sorry for the victims and their families," Jacob LALKENS of Stayner told The Sun.
Kelly PERKIN, 27, of Stayner and Daniel HOULE, 23, of Stroud were killed as a result of the crash.
Mary MILLIGAN, 25, of Wasaga Beach, was injured but not seriously.
All three were riding in the Ford truck -- PERKIN driving -- as it went south on Centre line Road.
LALKENS said he was driving home from Honda in Alliston, when the two vehicles collided around 1: 40 a.m. on Wednesday
The production worker who lives on Weir Street said he's been employed at the automotive plant for three years and made the drive on numerous occasions without any problem.
"I was just before the top of the hill and they came over and hit me. There was no time to react," LALKENS said. "After I just stopped. I didn't expect what happened."
None of the truck's occupants were strapped in. PERKIN was ejected when the vehicle entered the east ditch and rolled. HOULE and MILLIGAN were also tossed from the vehicle.
"I picked up my cell phone and called 911, got out and walked back there. At first I didn't see them. (I found out) there were already witnesses: paying attention to them," LALKENS explained.
He said the whole incident was "weird" and that he didn't want to talk any further about what transpired.
Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police Mark KINNEY said traffic investigators believe speed and alcohol also contributed to the crash.
Police are continuing to look into the matter.

Stanley MANSBRIDGE, Civil Servant: 1919-2005
Royal Air Force navigator decorated for his part in a critical bombing raid on a Nazi missile site later settled in Canada to become an influential civil servant in Ottawa and Alberta
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, April 16, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- The Flying Log Book of Wing Commander Stanley Mansbridge reads like a shorthand history of the air war over Europe. The log books were kept by every pilot and navigator, some more thorough than others. The blue-covered book was meticulously maintained, filled with detail, and demonstrated the kind of commitment to good organization that later propelled him to the heights of Canada's civil service.
Starting as a novice navigator, he recorded his flights in such smaller two-engine aircraft as Ansons, Fairey Battles and Blenheims before graduating to heavier machines, Hampdens, Wellingtons and finally the four-engine Lancaster. The bombing runs and flights over enemy territory -- operations -- are written in red ink, the training and transport flights in blue.
Each entry in the logbook occupies just one line, maybe two for a big mission. It gives the date, type of aircraft, name of the pilot, the "duty" or job Stanley MANSBRIDGE was doing, and a description of the mission.
The operation on the night of August 17, 1943, is one of the raids that merits two lines, naming the target and the size and number of bombs dropped by the Lancaster. The entry reads, "Peenemunde- 8 x 1000 G.P. 5 X 500 M.C.; Very Successful -- Large Fires."
The target was 1,000 kilometres from bomber bases in Britain and the flight took six and half hours there and back. His squadron was in the third wave, so the German defenders, fooled earlier by a phony raid on Berlin, were ready. Of the 12 aircraft in his squadron, only eight returned. The target was protected by a thicket of anti-aircraft fire from the ground and German night fighters in the air. Peenemunde was the secret location where Nazi scientists built the V-1 flying bomb (the world's first cruise missile) and the V-2 (the world's first ballistic missile).
The raid destroyed the rocket factory and killed many scientists, including Dr. Walter Thiel, the designer of the rocket engines. Flight Lieutenant MANSBRIDGE, as he was at the time, knew the raid was important, but didn't know it was one of the key air attacks of the war.
"Peenemunde one of the two raids by the Royal Air Force that changed the course of the war," says Steve HARRIS, director of History at the Department of National Defence in Ottawa. "It slowed the development of the V-1 and V-2 by at least two months. Had the V-2 been ready on time, the Allies might not have been able to hold the beaches in Normandy."
The war in Europe might have continued for years without the invasion of Normandy in June of 1944. The first V-1's, known as doodlebugs, were launched against Britain on June 13, 1944, a week after the D-Day invasion. Many were shot down. It wasn't until September of 1944 that the more deadly V-2's were launched. They carried a 975 kilogram warhead and their supersonic speed meant they were impossible to shoot down.
"It seems likely that if the Germans had succeeded in perfecting and using these new weapons earlier than he did, our invasion of Europe would have proved exceedingly difficult, perhaps impossible," wrote General Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme allied Commander in Europe.
Stanley MANSBRIDGE flew with the Royal Air Force. He had been born in a Canadian military hospital in England in 1918, son of a Canadian father and a British mother. His father, Harry, served with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry during the First World War and, among other battles, fought at Vimy Ridge.
After the war, the family lived in Toronto for a few years but his mother longed for home and they all moved back. Stanley grew up in the London suburb of Richmond, where he became an accomplished cricket player. He passed the British equivalent of high school and then went to work for Lloyd's Bank. There, he took banking courses that helped with his later career.
In 1939, he joined the Royal Air Force which happily latched on to his gift for numbers and detail and made him a navigator. The Royal Air Force was not disappointed. His unerring ability to find his way to the target and back in all conditions earned him the role of senior navigator in his squadron, a job that held heart-stopping responsibilities. Essentially, the navigator was the heart and mind of each bomber and was all but in command. The crew relied on the pilot's flying skills to get them off the ground, over the target and returned to earth in one piece yet knew in their bones that it was the navigator who gave him his instructions. Only the navigator understood the mysterious art of how to find their way in the dark to a hostile target and then return them safely home. In the case of Stan MANSBRIDGE, he was also accountable for an entire squadron that on any one mission mustered as many as 25 aircraft, each with its own navigator and each of whom was under his supervision.
His total time in combat involved two tours of duty, which meant 50 "operation" flights over enemy territory, including a 1941 mine-laying mission in the North Sea that disabled the German battle cruiser Gneisenau (with its sister ship, it had sunk 22 merchant vessels). Altogether, he made 340 flights during the war. Perhaps the most unusual was to deliver 600 pounds of Royal Mail to Gibraltar in a Lancaster bomber.
Some of his major missions included the raid on Hamburg that set the city afire and a long-distance raid on the Skoda munitions works in Czechoslovakia. A night mission against a German radar factory surprised the Germans by carrying on to bases in North Africa rather than turning for home and into the gun sights of waiting nightfighters.
The raid on Peenemunde was Mr. MANSBRIDGE's last operation and soon after he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. He then went to the Royal Air Force staff college and it was during that period he married his sweetheart Brenda. Unlike other wartime flyers who rushed into marriage, he had put off the wedding because he had seen so many of his Friends leave young widows after failing to come back from a raid. Ever the careful organizer, he decided to wait until after his second and final "tour."
From staff college, he was assigned to Bomber Command headquarters in High Wycombe outside London where he worked under Air Marshal Arthur "Bomber" Harris, the tactician and father of the "1,000-bomber raid" who, after the Battle of Britain, became the force to be reckoned with in Royal Air Force strategy. Fittingly, as a newly minted member of headquarters "brass," Mr. MANSBRIDGE was promoted to wing commander, which is the air force equivalent of a lieutenant-colonel.
After the war, he turned down a permanent commission in the Royal Air Force and went to work for the British civil service. His specialty was organization. From 1950 to 54, he and his young family lived in the Federated Malay States where Mr. MANSBRIDGE worked to set up the civil service for the soon-to-be-independent country of Malaysia. It was a time of professional rewards at work and personal satisfaction at home. With young children under foot, his large Kuala Lumpur home was made busy by the hubbub of family life. By then his two older children had been born Wendy, who would take up nursing, and Peter, who would grow up to become one of Canada's best known broadcasters.
While in Kuala Lumpur, Mr. MANSBRIDGE played for the state cricket team and won colours for his contribution as a fast bowler. It was from there that he decided to move to Canada, a country he hadn't visited since he was a boy.
The family moved to Ottawa where they put down new roots and welcomed the addition of a third child, Paul, who is now a supermarket executive. Mr. MANSBRIDGE soon made himself valuable to the federal government as a kind of trouble shooter for the Civil Service Commission, moving from one department to the other when they needed re-organization. "He was an expert in finding out what was wrong in government departments and making them more efficient in what they do, whether it was Malaya or in Ottawa," said Peter MANSBRIDGE, who before he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had been inspired to train as a Royal Canadian Navy pilot.
By 1960, Stanley MANSBRIDGE was deputy chief of organization and methods for the Civil Services Commission and was made its chief in 1964. In 1971, he joined the department of Health and Welfare where he was assistant deputy minister under Marc LALONDE.
Al JOHNSON, one of the most powerful mandarins in Ottawa during the 1960's and 1970's appreciated Mr. MANSBRIDGE's organizational skills. "He was assistant deputy minister of administration at National Welfare," remembered Mr. JOHNSON, who was the deputy minister and who is now retired in Ottawa. "Stanley was our financial watchdog. It's not a job that always makes you popular, but he was well liked since he was such an amiable person."
In 1976, he went to Edmonton for a meeting with Peter Lougheed. Mr. MANSBRIDGE later recalled that the Alberta premier insisted on one-on-one interviews with any senior people he hired. He passed muster and became the province's chief deputy minister of Social Services and Community Health, a job he kept until "The Province of Alberta was very fortunate to have Mr. MANSBRIDGE play a senior role with the Government of Alberta during the time I was premier," Mr. Lougheed said last week from his office in Calgary.
It was a period of intense debate between the federal and provincial governments over matters of health and welfare. Mr. MANSBRIDGE wrote many papers on these issues, some of which appeared in the Canadian Journal of Public Administration.
After leaving his job in Edmonton, Mr. MANSBRIDGE moved to Victoria where he taught public administration at the University of Victoria. Several years ago, he moved to London, Ontario, to be closer to his family.
Stanley Harry MANSBRIDGE was born on May 29, 1918, in Folkestone, England. He died in London, Ontario, on March 27, 2005. He is leaves his wife Brenda and by his children, Wendy, Peter and Paul.

She saw hope in every street kid
Karen POSITANO a passionate and stubborn advocate
Worked to start training programs, needle exchange
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Perhaps this anecdote can best sum up the many parts of Karen POSITANO, a petite and driven dynamo, an original, as well as a world traveller, insomniac, wife, mother of three and champion of every street kid who came by Youthlink Inner City, the drop-in resource centre and outreach program where she worked for almost 16 years:
It was 1994 and POSITANO was in Amsterdam at a world A.I.D.S. conference. She had met up with Hélène LALONDE, her buddy since their teenaged days in Ottawa when they lived innocently but recklessly and knew everyone, including bikers and drug dealers. She and LALONDE, now a consultant often working for the Canadian International Development Agency in developing countries, were standing at a bus stop when a passerby shrieked: "Karen POSITANO!"
It was Gwendolyn, a stripper POSITANO knew from Toronto who was in Amsterdam working at a live sex show.
"Karen POSITANO?" echoed one of the other people at the stop.
Turns out this person was with the World Health Organization and had been seeking POSITANO to sign her up as a speaker at a Rio de Janeiro conference for street kids, and she'd been hard pressed to locate her, as POSITANO had spent much of the last two days marching on the street with prostitutes.
"Yeah, she left me at the hotel," said her youngest daughter, Jill ROCHON, with a laugh. She was 14 at the time. "I was safe there, she knew that."
POSITANO was well known internationally. She was invited to make presentations at another world A.I.D.S. conference in Vancouver as well as at various H.I.V. and A.I.D.S. prevention and hepatitis C gatherings throughout North America.
In Toronto she was a member of Councillor Olivia CHOW's children and youth committee.
What she was renowned for was her tenacity, her push and her passion. After her first marriage failed and she lost her bid to convince a court to change her children's surname to hers, she took the matter to the Supreme Court.
"When she decided to do something, you just got out of the way," said her second husband, Gerry ROCHON.
"She definitely had a stubborn streak," said her eldest child, Karyn, 31. It is why she and brother Cain, 30, have the surname POSITANO.
In the early '80s, POSITANO and ROCHON and the three kids moved to Ottawa from Vancouver where they had been living. There she worked full-time and went to school full-time, getting a degree in criminology plus her master of social work. She also organized and played in a women's baseball league, acted in university theatre, took dance classes and travelled to exotic destinations such as Thailand.
She began working with street youth at Youthlink Inner City as part of the job placement for her social work degree; she was so enthusiastic about the work that not only did she convince her family to move to Toronto, she also created her own full-time employment there.
"Inner City was the root of her work. It catered to youth no one else would, those with mental health problems, prostitutes, drug users," said Rebecca BASSEY, a friend and former employee.
POSITANO never let anything stand in the way of getting more programs or more program dollars for the youth she saw every day at her office. Her funding proposals were legendary -- succinct, persuasive and usually written a month before the deadline -- but her first work for Youthlink was the production of two very radical education videos for street youth.
STD Street Smarts and Street Wise Women came with a warning of "frank language and explicit imagery" because the penises in the videos were real.
"Some people might say her style was abrasive," said Liz GREAVES, Youthlink executive director, "but she shot straight from the hip."
In 1999, she blasted the Mayor's Task Force on Homelessness, of which GREAVES was a member, for ignoring the plight of homeless youth.
"She was absolutely right," GREAVES said. The task force subsequently commissioned a report.
Fearless and always on the cutting edge, POSITANO was an early advocate of Youthlink's work in harm reduction. The agency was the first in the city to run a needle exchange program.
In 1998, she was one of the organizers of a program for squeegee kids, a new headline-grabbing demographic that was unsettling if not scaring many people in the city. While police were cracking down on homeless people in public places and the provincial government was bringing in the Safe Streets Act, POSITANO was part of a group lobbying Toronto politicians for resources to help these youth. The result is a fully federally funded training program teaching computer skills called the Youth Skills Zone.
In 1995, POSITANO was promoted to supervisor, responsible for a staff of about nine at Youthlink Inner City's drop-in/resource and outreach program. She started the Sock Swap, gathering cast-offs from families and Friends to recycle to the street kids. Before the centre got its washer and dryer, she'd take all the dirty socks home to wash them. She also started a monthly supper club for street youth with hepatitis C.
An early proponent of the peer educator program, in which clients work 10 hours a week at the drop-in and do outreach with other street or addicted youth, she conceived and won funding for the advanced peer education program.
This is a year-long full-time staff position, "one of the most important positions we have," according to Inner City supervisor Diana WALKER. "I think Karen saw hope in everyone who walked through the door."
POSITANO raced through her life, taking each of her children on a coming-of-age trip to Europe, meeting up with LALONDE in Kenya, Brazil and Egypt, holidaying with BASSEY in Jamaica and with her husband in Morocco, and finding thrift stores wherever she went. She volunteered with Habitat for Humanity building houses in Fiji, Uganda and India, where she met Mother Teresa. Once a month, she spent her Saturday mornings working in the Big Sisters thrift shop at Lawrence Ave. W. and Avenue Rd. More than once she climbed the C.N. Tower stairs for the United Way.
For kicks, she was an extra in David Cronenberg's The Naked Lunch, stalked celebrities on the red carpet at all the Toronto Film Festivals, dragged family and Friends to rock concerts, and plundered furniture discarded in Forest Hill and Rosedale. She and ROCHON bought, renovated and sold nine houses together. She also loved organizing and decorating them.
"She packed a lot in," said ROCHON. "It was as if she almost knew she wouldn't have a long life."
She'd beaten cancer of the uterus 14 years earlier, so she was typically upbeat when she was diagnosed two years ago with breast cancer.
"She had the kind of personality that you just thought she would beat it," said LALONDE.
"She always said it was no big deal," added BASSEY.
And they believed her even when she suffered a heart attack a year ago that almost ended her life. POSITANO rallied enough to sometimes make it back to work and to her office with the window that looked out on to the kitchen and eating area of the drop-in centre.
"I used to update her, make her feel at home because she didn't know a lot of the clients now," said John LAFORME, a crack addict and regular at Youthlink for four years. POSITANO always encouraged him to get the help he needed and last month he left for a detox facility in Quebec. "I'm doing it for me and for Karen," he said. "I've been in drop-ins and agencies across Canada and Karen was one of the best drop-in workers ever. She took the time to get to know you."
Ten days before she died, at her home on the afternoon of October 1 at the age 52, POSITANO attended a Youthlink managers' meeting. A day or so later, she sent Liz GREAVES an email saying she was going to lick cancer. "There was such a fierceness to her," GREAVES said.
POSITANO wanted to live long enough to see her first grandchild, and she did. Karyn named her newborn daughter Kalina, Hawaiian for Karen.
