Reginald Charles ROSE " Reg"
By Anne ROSE, Friday, January 7, 2005 - Page A16
Husband, father, grandpa, priest, politician, world traveller. Born June 5, 1930, in Halifax, Nova Scotia Died September 28, 2004, of cancer, in Campbellford, Ontario, aged 74.
Reg ROSE was a man who was bound to faith and family his entire life. His sister Jeanne recalled that as young children growing up in Halifax, they would often play-act what they wanted to be when they grew up. Unlike most boys who aspired to be policemen or sailors, Reg would act out the role of minister, preaching to his playmates from his parents' front porch. Though he would have many opportunities to follow different professional paths, it seemed that he was destined to fulfill those early aspirations.
Initially, Reg studied to be an actuary, but his father's untimely death forced him to end his studies. Later, Reg and his new wife Jean MITCHELL moved to Toronto, where he studied theology at Wycliffe College and was eventually ordained an Anglican priest.
While the life of a priest often involves many household moves, Reg and Jean were able to set down roots in Port Perry, Ontario, for 17 years, allowing their children, James, Anne, and Mary, to grow up in "one home." It was not until the youngest finished high school that they moved on to the parish of St. Olave's in west Toronto.
No matter where he lived, Reg was involved in his community. In Port Perry, he served as a municipal politician, sharing his sense of social responsibility and clear thinking with the greater community. Yet, when ultimately forced to choose between his political work and that of a parish priest, Reg chose his church. When he moved to Toronto, Reg immersed himself in his new community and served as president of Anglican Houses -- now known as L.O.F.T. Community Services -- an organization that provides housing and outreach services to those in need.
Reg was a supporter of the Conservative party, but enjoyed respect across the political spectrum. One New Democratic Party friend wrote that Reg was simply "too nice" to be a Tory. In 1992, nominated by Senator Anne COOLS, he received the Commemorative Medal of the 125th Anniversary of Confederation in recognition of his community contributions.
Reg is remembered as an excellent preacher who never used notes, no doubt due in some small measure to those early rehearsals on the family front porch. He did not restrict his message to the pulpit; many will recall the elaborate puppet shows that Reg and Jean, together with their Friends, performed over the Christmas season for many years.
A clergyman's salary is by no means a rich one, but Reg and Jean were able to fulfill their love of travel -- from early family camping trips, a 1976 European trip with their teenage children, to the frequent international excursions they took as a couple. Over the years, they brought back many cherished memories and keepsakes. Perhaps the most meaningful was the bottle of water drawn from the Jordan River in the late 1970s that he used to dilute baptismal water. Every child thereafter was christened with this special water, including his seven grandchildren.
Jean, his children and grandchildren meant the world to Reg. He enjoyed nothing more than being with them, whether at the table or by the pool, usually with a glass of wine in hand. You knew all was well with Reg when he shook with laughter, as only he could.
Reg was diagnosed with terminal cancer in early May. When asked by his friend Nigel HARVEY how he felt about having to face his death, all he had to say was that he was "disappointed." He was sure of his faith and content with his life. To the end, he shared with all of us the journeys and joys of his family and life.
Anne ROSE is Reg's daughter.

BURGESS, Anne Lawrence (née SLOANE)
Anne Lawrence BURGESS (née SLOANE) lived her life filled with family, Friends and faith. She left it comforted by the same. Anne died peacefully in Stratford in the early hours of January 26, 2005 of lung cancer, ready to join her Saviour, her husband of 50 years William James (Bill) BURGESS (1916-1990,) and her oldest daughter Ruth (1946-1972). Her life will continue to be celebrated by daughters Jean and Beth; son Bruce; sons-in-law Julian and Charles; daughter-in-law Audrey; Maggie, Rob and Julia and grandchildren Taflyn, James and Heather. She will be remembered always for her love and laughter by great-grandchildren Melina and Isabel Faith; Liam and Caelym; as well as brother-in-law Tom and wife Mary and a host of nieces and nephews. Anne felt blessed to have enjoyed a joyful Christmas with her whole family and visits with many Friends and relatives in her last few weeks. Born in 1917, she lived in Toronto, Saskatchewan, Ottawa, Timmins and Stratford. The oldest of three girls, she was predeceased by sisters Helen DOWNHAM and Patricia LUCAS. She spent summers at the family cottage in Honey Harbour and built a Career as a private secretary in broadcasting, advertising and for the Canadian war effort. After World War 2, she and Bill started their family in Timmins, where they lived for 20 years and made forever-cherished Friends. They moved to Stratford in 1964 and built another wonderful life there, filled with bridge clubs, golf clubs, summers at Lake Simcoe and church. Throughout her life, Anne was defined by her unwavering Christian faith. She was a tireless volunteer leader for the Anglican church and stewardship educator. Anne will be remembered most for her endless supply of funny stories about her amazing life adventures. An eternal optimist, she once said she couldn't think of a day when she wasn't happy about something. Special thanks to Friends and caregivers Marg and Gordon REIGER, Dr. Ken HOOK of Tavistock and the palliative care nurses at the Stratford General Hospital. Her funeral will be held on Monday January 31, 2005 at 11 a.m. at St. James Anglican Church, 41 Mornington Street, Stratford, Ontario (Rev. Dr. Lorne MITCHELL officiating.)

Driver killed at GO train crossing
By Oliver MOORE, Tuesday, May 17, 2005, Page A11
A 25-year-old Thornhill man was killed yesterday morning after driving his car under the barrier at a level crossing north of the city and stopping in the path of an onrushing GO train.
Police are investigating whether Levi BIALO was blinded by sun as he drove onto the tracks in Richmond Hill, a spot that was marked by drop-down barriers, flashing lights and a bell.
York Regional Police Sergeant Dave MITCHELL said yesterday that the car was travelling at roughly the speed limit, 50 kilometres an hour, when it hit the barrier. The barrier rode up and over the car. Mr. BIALO then hit the brakes and was killed by a southbound train loaded with commuters.
"It looks like, right now, that he didn't see the control arms," Sgt. MITCHELL said.
Police believe that Mr. BIALO, a rabbi and youth leader at Chabad Lubavitch in Markham, stopped his car because he was surprised by his contact with the control arm.
What they can't explain at this point is why he failed to heed the blaring horn as the train approached. Instead he halted with his Acura Legend positioned in such a way that the train slammed directly into the driver's side of the vehicle.
The train had just left the Langstaff station, second most northerly on that line, and was headed southbound to Union Station. It collided with Mr. BIALO's car in Markham at the spot where the tracks cross Green Lane, just east of Bayview.
The wrecked vehicle was pushed several hundred metres down the track and Mr. BIALO was declared dead at the scene. He leaves his pregnant wife and their two-year-old son.
The camera mounted on the train showed no other vehicles at the level crossing, Sgt. MITCHELL said. Police, who are trying to determine the effects of the sun on Mr. BIALO, would like to speak to any other drivers who were on that stretch of road around 7 a.m. yesterday.
No one on the train was injured, though the crew was shaken up by what they had witnessed. The stranded passengers were taken to Toronto by bus, and train service on the Richmond Hill line was reopened in time for the commute home.

We are not born to die
Nor only for the life beyond the grave
All that is beautiful in earth and sky
All skill and knowledge
All powers we have
Are of Thy giving
And in them we see
No dust and ashes
But a part of Thee.
Laughter is thine, the laughter free from scorn
And thine the smile upon a cheerful face
Thine too the tears when love for love must mourn
And death brings silence for a little space
Thou gavest and thou dost not take away
The parting is but here and for a day.

GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born Feb 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE. The Funeral service will be held at Grace Church on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Rd (at Russell Hill Rd), Toronto, on Wednesday, August 10, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund through the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation, 555 University Ave, Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1X8 (1-800-651-5825) or www.sickkids.org/Foundation/ and specify 'The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund' under 'Additional Comments'.

Alan (Doc) GALLIE, Northern Adventurer 1915-2005
Mining engineer made history by moving an entire town across 245 kilometres of frozen muskeg in northern Manitoba
By Michael VALPY, Wednesday, August 10, 2005, Page S6
Alan Edward (Doc) GALLIE was a Canadian mining engineer of pioneer legend, a dashing adventurer of the North, a passionate outdoorsman and an engaging charmer in his youth who could roller-skate his way into the hearts of beautiful young women.
He made history by moving an entire town over 245 kilometres of frozen muskeg in northern Manitoba. He revelled in working beside men named Half-Ear Andy, Rubbernose Ragolski, Bonehead Joe and Alphabet Smith.
He snow-shoed through a valley at night pursued by wolves ("The fastest I ever snow-shoed," he later told his daughters), walked away more than once from plane crashes in the wilderness and on one occasion trekked alone into the bush to bring out a deranged, homicidal prospector.
In the latter part of his 42-year career with Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. -- now Sherritt International -- he was vice-president of marketing, travelling the world to sell Canadian nickel.
Doc GALLIE was a tall, fit man -- 6-foot-4 -- with enormous self-confidence who made Friends wherever he went. He had a sunny view of life. His maxim was that he wanted the world to be nice. He was a doer, a builder who hated merely watching things happen.
Throughout his professional life, he was engaged in programs awarding bursaries and scholarships to Canadian engineering students and finding jobs for them at home when they graduated so that they would not leave the country. He did not like old people, his family said of him. He wanted to be around the young.
Mr. GALLIE acquired the nickname of Doc as a student at Upper Canada College when one of the masters asked him if he was the son of Toronto's internationally renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. William GALLIE. Young Alan GALLIE said yes, and he was known as Doc ever after.
While he was still at Upper Canada College, his mother arranged a date for him for a school dance with the daughter of one of her Friends. Doc GALLIE roller-skated over to the girl's house, knocked on the door, was admitted into the front hall and, as he later said, down the stairs to meet him came the most beautiful creature he'd ever seen -- Mary MITCHELL.
Doc GALLIE decided to become a mining engineer after hearing tales of the Northern Ontario mining town of Cobalt told over lunch one day by a medical colleague of his father's who practised in the community.
As a student at University of Toronto, one of his engineering professors, H.E.T. HAULTAIN, asked the young man to be his assistant on a trip to Africa in 1936. Prof. HAULTAIN lectured him each morning on the 21-day ocean crossing so that he wouldn't fall behind in his studies, then took him to some of the continent's great mines.
In Bulawayo, Rhodesia -- now Zimbabwe -- he took time off to go roller-skating in a local rink, collided with a pretty girl, knocked her down, helped her up and dated her.
Back home, after graduating with honours in 1938, he started work with Sherritt in northern Manitoba and shortly thereafter telephoned Mary MITCHELL in Toronto to ask if she would be ready to marry him in two weeks. Mary said yes, while her mother, overhearing the conversation, said no.
They married in the chapel of Bishop Strachan School and she became his life's closest companion, fellow adventurer and equally passionate aficionado of the outdoors.
After a honeymoon in New York and holiday celebrations at home for Christmas, Mary accompanied her new husband into the bush where their first home was a mine-office tent shared with the company geologists with the new Mrs. GALLIE assigned the job of camp radio operator.
That first winter of their marriage, the temperature dropped more than once to 40 below. "When our Samoyed dog climbed into bed with us at 3 in the morning, I knew it was time to put more wood in the stove," Mr. GALLIE later wrote.
From Manitoba, Mr. GALLIE was sent in 1941 to manage an iron mine at Josephine, near Wawa, Ontario The mine was under a lake and, in 1946, the lake bed unexpectedly let go and flooded the mine. Mr. GALLIE wrote his engineering master's thesis on why it happened.
In 1947 -- now with two young daughters, Joan and Brenda -- he was reassigned to northern Manitoba, and five years later supervised the unprecedented feat of closing down an exhausted mine, in Sherridon, and moving the equipment and the entire town site 245 kilometres north over winter roads to a new ore body at Lynn Lake (where a third daughter, Ann, was born).
Mr. GALLIE was made assistant to the president of Sherritt Gordon in 1958, a job he said neither he nor the president felt had any purpose.
At that time, "no one [in the company] was really doing anything about selling the product," Mr. GALLIE noted. All the company's contracts were with U.S. steel companies and the U.S. government, and they were coming to an end.
So Mr. GALLIE basically invented a job for himself as vice-president of sales and spent the next two decades selling the company's output around the world.
At home in Canada, Alan and Mary GALLIE indulged in their hearts' passions of canoeing, bird watching, fishing and the garden of the 150-year-old Cape Cod saltbox home they bought at Claremont, northeast of Toronto. When Mrs. GALLIE died in 1998, Mr. GALLIE sold their Toronto home and moved permanently to "The Saltbox," close to the Glenmajor fishing camp he belonged to and loved.
He lived an active life at The Saltbox until a few days before his death.
He was 90 when he died, surrounded by family members in the home of his daughter, oncologist Dr. Brenda GALLIE. He'd had a martini a few hours earlier, made jokes and chatted with his family about what they were doing. He said he was looking forward to death as his next adventure.
Alan Edward (Doc) GALLIE was born on February 13, 1915, in Toronto. He died of lung cancer on August 6 in Toronto following a short illness. He was 90. He is survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD and Brenda and Ann GALLIE, grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD and Frances and Gordon JEWETT, and nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY and Jane, Louise and Ian GALLIE. Funeral service is 2 p.m. today at Grace Church-on-the-Hill, Toronto.

Young rabbi killed at train crossing
May have been blinded by sun
Police appealing for witnesses:
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A popular young Thornhill rabbi may have been blinded by the rising sun early yesterday when his car was hit broadside by a GO train at a level crossing on Green Lane just east of Bayview Ave.
Rabbi Levi BIALO, 25, died instantly when his white Acura Legend became wedged under the lead car of the reversing GO train and was carried about 160 metres down the track.
BIALO and his wife Shira were in charge of the young adult program at Chabad Lubavitch, an Orthodox synagogue about a block and a half from the scene of the accident. Both also taught elementary classes in the synagogue school.
Friends say BIALO, who moved here from Cleveland about two years ago, likely was rushing to make Shacharit or morning prayers at the synagogue when his car was struck shortly after 7 a.m. The level crossing, which is protected by lights, bells and a barrier gate, is just east of the driveway to the BIALOs' home in the Landmark condominium project on Green Lane.
York Region police accident reconstructionist Sgt. Dave MITCHELL said police suspect BIALO may have been blinded by the rising eastern sun, brushed under the barrier gates, put on his brakes and stopped directly on the southbound tracks. "It's just a very sad and unfortunate set of circumstances," he said.
Police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the accident to shed some light on the circumstances.
The rush-hour train had just left the Langstaff station near Highway 7 and Yonge St. and was heading for Union Station.
No one was injured on the train, but MITCHELL said the three-member crew was "severely shaken" by the accident. They were taken away by investigators to be interviewed.
The GO passengers were transferred to buses within an hour and a half of the accident to continue their trip into Toronto.
Members of the tight-knit Chabad Lubavitch community were devastated. They called the young rabbi "the best person you could ever meet."
Several members of the synagogue stood staring anxiously down the tracks as Markham firefighters and other emergency workers conducted the difficult task of freeing the man's body from the car's wreckage.
A Jewish burial team, which traditionally cleans and blesses the site of a tragic accident involving Jews, was allowed on to the site shortly after the body was removed around 10: 30 a.m.
Green Lane was closed most of the day as accident investigators studied the scene. Rail traffic began moving along the Bala subdivision Toronto's main rail line into Northern Ontario -- around 11 a.m.
Rabbi Avraham PLOTKIN comforted BIALO's family. Other congregation members at the site could not believe the rabbi, who leaves pregnant wife Shira and a 2-year-old son, was gone.
"He was so full of life and such an inspiration to everyone," said Neil HENDERSON, 50. "He would have been on his way to morning services... this is really sad."
"Levi was a great person who helped bring religion to a lot of people who did not pray so often or so hard," said Jeremy PILARSKI, 25. "He hosted regular dinners at his home for the young people in the community and made a difference in their lives.
"I am sure everyone who knew him is just devastated."
HENDERSON said the accident should make officials consider a grade separation for the tracks, which run through a busy residential and commercial area.
GO Transit spokesman Ed SHAY/SHEA said the line is owned by Canadian National and he did not know of any plans for an overpass.
He said the train speed limit at that point was 40 or 50 km/h, depending on which of the two tracks the train was using.
York Region police, the Transport Safety Board, GO Transit and Canadian National are investigating.

Head-on crash kills two, hurts another
One driver going wrong way on 401
Woman survived impact of 200 km/h
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
Two men are dead and a woman is fighting for her life following a horrific head-on crash on Highway 401 early yesterday that police say was caused by one of the vehicles travelling the wrong way on the highway.
"Both of the vehicles were travelling at highway speeds. That means at least at 100 km/h and when they hit, you're looking at a combined impact at 200 km/h," Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Cam WOOLLEY said.
"It's incredible that anybody survived."
Police said the impact occurred at the crest of a hill on the highway and it's unlikely either driver had enough time to react before the collision near Milton.
"Considering the speeds and the fact they were closing in on each other, there would have been little opportunity for either of them to brake or swerve," WOOLLEY said.
"They hit head-on, headlight to headlight."
Thomas QUIGLEY, 31, and his passenger, Douglas ALLEN, 41, both of Kitchener, died instantly in the crash, which occurred about 3: 03 a.m. yesterday in the westbound passing lane of the highway at Guelph Line in Milton.
The jaws of life were needed to free Lynn ALBRECHT, 45, of Woodstock, from the crushed Pontiac she was driving. She was rushed to Hamilton General Hospital by air ambulance and she remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
"She was conscious when taken to hospital," WOOLLEY said. "It took emergency personnel from the Milton fire department more than an hour and a half to free her from the wreckage."
Police haven't released the cause of the collision or said which of the vehicles was travelling the wrong way. However, they said most collisions caused by vehicles travelling the wrong way on a highway involve fatigue, impairment, senility and even suicide.
Collision reconstructionists spent several hours at the crash scene and the westbound lanes of the highway were closed until about 8: 25 a.m.
The eastbound lanes needed to be temporarily closed for about 30 minutes until about 5: 30 a.m. to allow the helicopter to land.
As part of their investigation, police are trying to determine the last-known movements of the drivers of both vehicles, including where they were coming from and what they had been doing earlier in the evening.
"Based on certain circumstances, there is evidence pointing to which of the cars was going the wrong way," WOOLLEY said.
"But we're still talking with witnesses: and we don't want to taint the evidence."
Provincial police said a call came into their communications centre indicating that a car was travelling eastbound in the westbound lanes between Highway 25 and the Guelph Line.
Minutes later, another call came in saying there had been a head-on collision, WOOLLEY said.
The crash was the second fatality probed by the Ontario Provincial Police in a matter of hours.
Investigators had just cleared a crash on Highway 410, where Rajeenthan SARAVANAMUTHU, 24, of Toronto died when he lost control of his 1991 black Honda Civic, crashed into a steel guardrail and rolled into a ditch.
The collision occurred about 11: 30 p.m. Wednesday on the northbound Highway 410, south of Derry Rd. in Mississauga.
Two passengers were transported to William Osler's Brampton Memorial hospital with non life-threatening injuries, police said.
witnesses: of that accident are requested to contact the Ontario Provincial Police's Port Credit detachment at 905-278-6131.

MITCHELL, Wilma Marguerite
It is with great sadness that we relay the news of the passing of Wilma Marguerite MITCHELL. " Margie," or "Gram" as she was referred to in our family, passed away quietly in her sleep at the West Vancouver Care Centre in West Vancouver, British Columbia on Thursday, June 9, 2005. Born in Ancaster, Ontario, in 1908, Gram was one of four siblings: Bryce, Thelma and Hazel, all predeceasing her. She leaves behind her a family, who adored her, which includes two beautiful great-grandchildren, Shannon and Sean, a grand_son, Mark, her daughter-in-law, Romaine, and Precious, who always made her feel like such an integral part of our family, and whom, in return, she loved like a daughter. We consider ourselves unbelievably fortunate to have been blessed with her love, her support and her kindness for so many years. Yet, despite this fact, we find ourselves yearning for more. If there was a secret to her longevity, it was in the fact that she was an incredibly good person and kind to the core. Our family would like to thank all the wonderful caregivers and staff of The West Vancouver Care Centre in West Vancouver, British Columbia For almost four years they have demonstrated not only their professionalism, but, more importantly, their heart, soul and love. In so doing, they became part of her, and our extended family. We would also like to acknowledge Dr. Bryce Kelpin of West Vancouver, British Columbia. He is not only a fine physician, but also a truly caring and compassionate human being. We thank him for his continual support and personal attention. Gram will be interred at the Capilano View Cemetery in West Vancouver, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers, we would appreciate a donation be made to The Salvation Army. Farewell, Gram.

Police seek killing motive
Man found dead in Woodbridge Shot in home invasion robbery
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
Forensic investigators spent the weekend searching for clues in a Woodbridge home, hoping to discover what led to the killing of a 45-year-old man Friday.
York Region police said Carlo DIMATTEO died of a gunshot wound during a home invasion robbery at his home on Cipriano Court in the area of Rutherford and Vaughan Mills Rds.
"It was a robbery, but we can't reveal whether anything was taken," York homicide Detective Larry WILSON said yesterday.
Police won't reveal whether DIMATTEO, who worked at the Brampton Chrysler Plant, was targeted. "As far as I know, it had nothing to do with his job," WILSON said.
DIMATTEO made a frantic 911 call about 10 a.m. on Friday, moments after investigators believe he was shot.
Investigators said he revealed little during his call, except that he was injured in a robbery.
DIMATTEO, who was alone in the home at the time of the shooting, died at Sunnybrook hospital about 11: 30 a.m. Neighbours said five people, including three children, lived in the posh two-storey home, which remains cordoned off by police.
Meanwhile, York police have yet to confirm whether a man who collapsed in the driveway of the Pinecrest Motel on Highway 7 in Concord on Friday at about 11: 50 a.m. was also the victim of a homicide. Police said the unidentified man died a short time later in hospital.

Boyfriend charged in toddler's death
Toddler found dead in wooded lot near Cambridge
Mother's boyfriend charged with first-degree murder
By Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporter
The desperate search for a little boy just shy of his second birthday has ended with the discovery of his body in a wooded lot on the outskirts of Cambridge and the arrest of a man on a charge of first-degree murder.
Police found the body of 22-month-old Donny CLUBB in a wooded area between the Grand River and the Whistle Bear Golf Club early yesterday, but would not say what or who led them there.
"Those human remains we believe to be that of Donovan CLUBB," Waterloo regional police Insp. Bryan LARKIN told a news conference, adding an autopsy must still be done. "We're in the early hours of investigation at the crime scene."
The discovery left the little boy's parents devastated.
His mother, 21-year-old Courtney CATTON of Chatham, was in disbelief, her sister Britney said.
"It isn't real," Britney CATTON said. "It's one thing to lose your baby, but to lose him to murder is another thing. It's unexplainable. The only break that my sister had in so long was her kid. He's never gone from her side, ever."
Matt CLUBB, the boy's father, was in shock. "I can't believe this is happening," said CLUBB, 21. "It's like a bad dream and I'm waiting to wake up. But I can't.
"I don't want to believe that this has really happened, I just miss him so much."
CLUBB said police "won't tell us much... if he was buried or not... because they don't want it to interfere with their investigation."
Pam CLUBB, the boy's grandmother, was overcome with grief. "I have a picture of him in a bathtub, he looks so beautiful.... I've been looking at it and all I want to do is hold him, but I can't."
Donny, who had been the subject of a seldom-used province-wide Amber Alert after his mother reported him missing Thursday, was last seen a week ago, when his mother's 35-year-old boyfriend took him on what police believe was a fishing trip in Simcoe, where he has connections.
"Donny's mother was well aware that Donny was going to go away for a period of time," said Chatham-Kent Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
"What they did there, we're not 100 per cent sure, but they were there for several days."
Casey PETERS, who lives next door to the Kitchener house sometimes used by the boyfriend, said she saw a little boy she believes was Donny in a car with the man Monday.
"The kid looked content," PETERS said.
The fishing trip was to have ended Wednesday, and the boy's mother went to bed that night thinking he was back home.
When she found Donny missing Thursday morning, FLIKWEERT said, she called police, who began a missing person investigation at 10: 48 a.m.
Donny's mother told police her boyfriend returned home to their Chatham residence late Wednesday night, and told her that her son was sleeping in the basement of their home.
The man left at about 5: 30 a.m. Thursday, but when CATTON went to look for Donny later that morning she couldn't find him, and called police.
After the boyfriend was arrested in Kitchener on Canada Day, he was interviewed by detectives with the assistance of members of the Ontario Provincial Police's behavioural sciences unit.
"The investigation revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of Donny," Deputy Chief Jack CHAMBERS of Chatham-Kent police said.
Neighbours of CATTON said she had been living with Donny and her boyfriend on Edgar Ave., a quiet street on Chatham's south side.
Rosaire STERLING and his wife Ruth, who have lived on Edgar for 37 years, recalled seeing the energetic child playing in front of their home.
"He used to play right on the road, but my three granddaughters played in the back," Sterling said. "I used to holler at the mum to pull him in. It's a calm street, but there's still a bit of traffic.
"These people didn't cause any rumpus," STERLING added. "They were good people."
Neighbours and other well-wishers began placing flowers in front of CATTON's house, roped off with yellow police crime scene tape, shortly after the news of Donny's death broke yesterday.
Among those paying their respects were Brenda McKINLAY, her young son Zack and boyfriend Bob.
After she placed a single red rose and a small stuffed teddy bear in front of the house, her boyfriend paused and considered the little boy standing beside them.
"Zack's the same age as little Donovan," said Bob.
"It kind of hits home."
Donny's father, meanwhile, was struggling to cope with his loss.
"He was an energetic little boy, always moving, always smiling, always full of life," CLUBB said. "I'll never have the chance to see him grow up and be with him."
Donny's grandmother, too, thought of the good time that will never come again.
"When he would cry, I would take him to the kitchen window and he would look outside, and he would laugh, but that will never happen again," Pam CLUBB said.
Charged with first-degree murder is Shawn Tyler PALMER, who was arrested Canada Day on a warrant charging him with abduction.
He is to make an audio court appearance in Chatham on Wednesday.

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.

Man charged in woman's fatal beating
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
A 25-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of a Brampton woman.
Audrey COTE, 21, died in hospital on Sunday a short time after Peel police found her clinging to life in her rented basement apartment in a home on Fletcher's Creek Blvd.
Police discovered the woman, who was suffering from severe head trauma, after being led to the residence by a man who was found running naked down the street at about 1: 15 p.m. Sunday.
Police said he indicated they could find an injured woman at the residence.
Few details about the homicide are being revealed but some neighbours said yesterday the victim had been living in the home for less than a year.
One neighbour said she understood the woman was from the Montreal area and another person said she believed she had been working as a nanny in the home.
Police wouldn't confirm whether this was the case.
But most people interviewed in the neighbourhood said they had rarely spoken to the woman.
Some said they didn't know she had been living in the residence.
Although the accused knew the victim, police won't reveal their relationship but said he didn't live in the residence.
Ryan BUCKNOR of Brampton appeared briefly in a Brampton courtroom yesterday while several distraught family members stood at the back of the room.
He was remanded in custody until his next appearance tomorrow.

GALLIE, Alan Edward
Alan Edward GALLIE (known to everyone as 'Doc') was born February 13, 1915 in Toronto, Ontario and died peacefully on August 6, 2005. Doc will be best remembered for his remarkable interest in everything and everyone around him, and his extraordinary ability to make Friends. Doc, a born engineer and natural outdoorsman, worked for Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. for 42 years in numerous mining camps throughout Northern Ontario and Manitoba. In 1939 he married his high school sweetheart Mary MITCHELL and took her to northern Manitoba where they spent their first winter in a tent at 40 below, to the horror of their parents and delight of themselves. As mine manager at Lynn Lake, Manitoba, Doc orchestrated the move of an entire town - buildings, people, dogs and all - 147 miles over a winter road from Sherridon to a new mine site at Lynn Lake. He never hesitated to get his hands dirty or to see things done right. Later, Doc became Vice-President of Sales and travelled around the world selling Sherritt's nickel. When he retired, he and Mary lived full-time at the 'Saltbox' near Claremont, Ontario just outside Toronto. His passions were fly-fishing at Glenmajor, bird-watching and gardening. He energetically cared for future generations, with a deep involvement in the Canadian Mineral Industry Education Foundation scholarship program for engineering students, the Daisy Fund for children seeking treatment for retinoblastoma, and the pursuit of justice, honesty and common sense. Throughout it all, Doc built innumerable Friendships, born of a wonderful confidence, deep interest in and respect for others. Doc lived at his beloved Saltbox until the last day of his life. He died in his daughter Brenda's house in Toronto, surrounded by his family, enquiring after the interesting details of their lives until the end. Doc, son of William Edward GALLIE and Janet Louise (HART) GALLIE, is predeceased by his wife Mary Frances (MITCHELL,) and survived by his daughters Joan McDONALD (Gary GILLIES), Brenda GALLIE (Michael JEWETT), and Ann GALLIE (Dougal McCREATH;) by his grandchildren David and Christopher McDONALD, and Frances and Gordon JEWETT; and by his nieces and nephews Barbara LEA, Frances KEY, Jane GALLIE, Louise GALLIE and Ian GALLIE.

(at Russell Hill Rd.), Toronto, on Wednesday, August 10, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund through the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation, 555 University Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1X8 1-800-651-5825 or www.sickkids.org/Foundation/ and specify 'The International Retinoblastoma Daisy Fund' under 'Additional Comments'.
