Man fatally shot inside posh Vaughan home
By Mike FUNSTON, Staff Reporter, With files from Dana BROWN, Page B1
A man was shot inside his posh Vaughan home yesterday and later died in hospital in what police are treating as a robbery-related crime.
The victim called 911 at about 10 a.m. from the house on Cipriano Court off Vaughan Mills Rd., near Rutherford Rd.
He said he was hurt.
"He was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," said Sgt. Bruce WEST of the homicide squad. "We're treating it as a break-and-enter or home invasion-type incident."
West refused to identify the victim, saying relatives hadn't been notified. An autopsy is to be performed today. Police weren't sure how many shots had been fired or had hit the victim, who was believed to be alone at the time, West said.
One neighbour identified the home's owner as Carlo DI MATTEO, and another said a family of five, including three children, lived in the home. The family has lived there for at least five years, neighbours said.
The stylish two-storey home, with a swimming pool and stone driveway, was cordoned off as officers searched for clues.
"It's too early in the investigation to tell whether this specific house was targeted or whether this was a random act," WEST said. "Typically in a home invasion-type robbery people go there for a sole purpose."
WEST said neighbours apparently didn't see or hear anything. In the 911 call, the victim did not relay any information about the assailant.
WEST would not say if anything was taken from the home.
A neighbour said they often saw the father playing with his teen daughter and two younger sons out in the street.
York Region officers were investigating another suspicious death yesterday, but refused to rule it a homicide until an autopsy has been done. A man collapsed in the driveway of the Pinecrest Motel on Highway 7 and died later in hospital. WEST would not give details.

School mourns teen killed by freight train
By Kelly PEDRO and Jon WILLING, Free Press Reporter; Special to The Free Press
Students at a Woodstock high school paid tribute yesterday to a classmate killed when he ran into the path of a freight train Tuesday night. Marc MATTHEWS, 17, of Embro, was killed instantly, police said.
"This is going to be one of those tragedies that shakes up the community," said Oxford Community police Const. Bob McDONALD.
Staff and students at College Avenue secondary school spent yesterday remembering MATTHEWS, a Grade 11 student.
"It's a sad loss when there's a sad, tragic accident," principal Judy THORNER said.
An announcement of MATTHEW's death was made to the school. Students signed a long piece of paper in the school's guidance office and wrote tributes to MATTHEWS.
After classes yesterday, students described MATTHEWS as a likable classmate.
"He was a good kid," Billy HARRIS, 15, said.
"I was weak today," Bobby WALKER, 16, said. "He was one of my best Friends."
MATTHEWS's uncle, Randy LOVE, said the teen loved outdoor activities, including skateboarding and swimming.

MATTHEWS was walking about 8: 45 p.m. when the lights and gates at a rail crossing on Wilson Street in the city's downtown were activated, police said.
Police aren't sure why MATTHEWS bolted across the tracks, where he was hit by a westbound Canadian National freight, said McDONALD.
Investigators are trying to determine if MATTHEWS was alone and where he was going.
Police ask anyone who saw what happened to call them at 537-2323.
The train was en route from Toronto to Sarnia.
The crew asked for relief at the scene and was replaced, said Canadian National's Ian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
The tracks were closed until about midnight.
The crossing is in one of the heaviest freight corridors, said THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, with about 40 Canadian National freight trains travelling through it every day.

PENSA 'made us all better'
The Londoner, who championed social causes for decades, lost her battle with cancer.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
London's social conscience is a little quieter today. Elaine PENSA, a passionate and strong voice for the poor, the sick and the discriminated against, died at home yesterday after a two-year battle with ovarian cancer.
She was 68.
Family, Friends and countless others she touched were left feeling both broken-hearted and lucky they knew her.
"It has been a horrible day," said friend Janet STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a managing partner at Lerners law firm.
"But she has left us all with wonderful memories. She made us all better than we were."
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and PENSA's paths crossed in the early 1980s and became permanently entwined with the creation of the legendary London Ladies Literary League, a group of 11 women who met once a month to talk about books, family and, thanks to PENSA, helping the community.
"We talked about books for about 20 seconds," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART recalled with a laugh. "Then we talked about family and everything else.
"She was our radical activist."
The list of initiatives PENSA championed spanned decades and issues, from London Lawyers Feed the Hungry to a committee that established the city's anti-hate group.
"She was the conscience for a lot of people," said Deb MATTHEWS, a close friend and London-North-Centre Liberal member of provincial parliament.
"She really cared about social justice, about inequality, racial or social inequality. She felt these issues in her heart and in her soul. She had a very generous spirit and she wasn't hesitant to make sure people heard about it."
PENSA went far beyond talking about the need for change. She started projects and followed each to completion, said Laila NORMAN.
The two women helped found London's Association for the Elimination of Hate.
"She was just a marvellous woman," NORMAN said. "I am still broken up about it."
PENSA firmly believed everyone, regardless of colour, creed or sexual orientation, had the right to live in safety, said Debbie LEE, the association's executive director.
"Elaine was amazing. She had so much spirit that it was like she was a young girl in a woman's body," LEE said.
PENSA's sense of social justice also led her into politics. She ran unsuccessfully for the Ontario Liberals, but led successful campaigns for Joe SWAN for city council and board of control.
"I couldn't have had a better friend and mentor," SWAN said. "She took me with all my warts, like she did with everyone. My God, we're going to miss her."
After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer and recognizing a lack of awareness about the deadly illness, PENSA threw herself into organizing the Run for Ovarian Cancer.
"She gave cancer an unbelievable battle," NORMAN said.
Despite her commitments to the community, family always came first, NORMAN said.
"They are a very loving, caring family."
In a recent Free Press interview, husband Claude PENSA described his perfect day as "sitting on the porch at our cottage with Elaine, family, Friends..."
"He will miss her tremendously," MATTHEWS said.
Besides her husband of 46 years, PENSA leaves four children and nine grandchildren.
Visitation takes place Monday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Donohue Funeral Home at 326 Waterloo St. in London.
The funeral mass will be held at St. Peter's Basilica, 196 Dufferin Ave. at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

School mourns teen killed by freight train
By Kelly PEDRO and Jon WILLING, Free Press Reporter; Special to The Free Press
Students at a Woodstock high school paid tribute yesterday to a classmate killed when he ran into the path of a freight train Tuesday night. Marc MATTHEWS, 17, of Embro, was killed instantly, police said.
"This is going to be one of those tragedies that shakes up the community," said Oxford Community police Const. Bob McDONALD.
Staff and students at College Avenue secondary school spent yesterday remembering MATTHEWS, a Grade 11 student.
"It's a sad loss when there's a sad, tragic accident," principal Judy THORNER said.
An announcement of MATTHEW's death was made to the school. Students signed a long piece of paper in the school's guidance office and wrote tributes to MATTHEWS.
After classes yesterday, students described MATTHEWS as a likable classmate.
"He was a good kid," Billy HARRIS, 15, said.
"I was weak today," Bobby WALKER, 16, said. "He was one of my best Friends."
MATTHEWS's uncle, Randy LOVE, said the teen loved outdoor activities, including skateboarding and swimming.
"He liked to do dirt biking and rollerblading," LOVE said, noting MATTHEWS was always willing to help those close to him. "If he could help you out, he would."
MATTHEWS was walking about 8: 45 p.m. when the lights and gates at a rail crossing on Wilson Street in the city's downtown were activated, police said.
Police aren't sure why MATTHEWS bolted across the tracks, where he was hit by a westbound Canadian National freight, said McDONALD.
Investigators are trying to determine if MATTHEWS was alone and where he was going.
Police ask anyone who saw what happened to call them at 537-2323.
The train was en route from Toronto to Sarnia.
The crew asked for relief at the scene and was replaced, said Canadian National's Ian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
The tracks were closed until about midnight.
The crossing is in one of the heaviest freight corridors, said THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, with about 40 Canadian National freight trains travelling through it every day.

Lynne Kathleen MATTHEWS
By Brett MATTHEWS, Tuesday, May 3, 2005, Page A20
Wife, mother, teacher, community organizer, artist. Born November 5, 1919 in Winnipeg, Manitoba Died February 12, in St. Catharines, Ontario, of pneumonia, aged 85.
Lynne grew up in Winnipeg in the depths of the Great Depression. She earned a secure life there, then risked all by throwing herself into a love (that would prove lifelong) for a British soldier she scarcely knew. She raised two boys in St. Catharines, Ontario, and when her life and home there were threatened, took on city hall and won. She exemplified toughness and quality in all she did, and gracefully inspired it in others.
As a girl, Lynne got through school with her closest sister Marjorie by putting facts into duets that they sang together while doing the dishes. When high school ended, she faced a jobless world. "You're a gifted artist," her older brother said, "you should attend university." But her father had recently lost his job. Aware of the family's money worries, she set aside her sketchbook and went to secretarial college.
Her outstanding volunteer work at the college office after graduating caught the principal's attention, and he passed her one of the few job opportunities available. So, in 1938, she became a legal secretary. Her employers valued her sense of humour and discriminating alertness to detail; so much so that Mr. Fillmore of the law firm Fillmore, Riley and Watson presented her with the first International Business Machines Corporation electric typewriter in Winnipeg.
Lynne met her future husband Jim MATTHEWS, then serving with the British air force, in 1943 at a dance hall on a moonlit night at Winnipeg Beach. She loved his British accent, his old-world charm and his assured dancing. When he was suddenly ordered to Yemen they quickly arranged their engagement. Many passionate letters and five long years later, Lynne secured passage on a ship carrying civilians to England. England was still under rationing, so she brought her wedding dress and wedding cake with her.
In 1965, after Lynne's two sons were born, the family returned to Canada, settling at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines, Ontario Lynne became a high-school teacher. Her colleague, Brian SMITH, says she was often sought out by students for advice, not just about commercial arts but also about their lives. She rediscovered her creative side, from sketching to gardening to entertaining.
Then, a landfill opened in the old quarry above our home. Compacted into fractured limestone, the waste seeped out and down the hillside. By 1984 it was flooding neighbourhood basements and rising out of toilets during sewer backups.
Lynne left the toxic soil of her garden to become president of the neighbourhood group formed to fight back. She made dramatic presentations to city council. David SMITH, a city engineer, says that Lynne didn't fear "municipal politicians and staff or their consultants. She carefully reviewed all information, asked insightful questions and did not suffer fools lightly." He credits Lynne with enabling a collaborative approach and a "made in St. Catharines" solution.
In 1998 she suffered intense pain in her left side, and couldn't walk. "The bone is mush," said her doctor, prescribing a hip replacement. Before it could be done she danced with Jim at their 50th anniversary.
The landfill is now closed. At the north end, above our old home, is a wildflower meadow dedicated to Lynne's "community service, outstanding leadership and significant contribution to environmental awareness."
Lynne was never really able to pursue her passion for the arts, but I doubt she regretted it. As she liked to say, nothing is ever really lost. Sometimes, it just takes an unexpected shape.
Brett MATTHEWS is Lynne's son.

Thursday, December 8, 2005, Page S9
Two leaders of the 1837 rebellions and the armed uprising at Montgomery's Tavern were executed in public in the yard of the Toronto courthouse as an example to other aspiring rebels. Of the several hundred people arrested during the winter of 1837-38, 10 others were hanged on the same day but behind closed doors. About 60 rebels from Upper and Lower Canada were also deported to penal colonies in Australia. Most never returned.
