11-year-old killed by truck 'a treasure'
Died after biking accident with garbage truck
Local residents say Horner Ave. is dangerous for children
By Scott ROBERTS, Staff Reporter
"Energetic, athletic, funny -- a really good friend."
Lynn TOMASEK's eyes well up with tears as she reads a list of words used to describe Ben PASKUS, an 11-year-old Etobicoke boy crushed to death by a garbage truck Wednesday evening.
"The children are just devastated," said TOMASEK, principal of St. Ambrose Catholic School, where Ben was a student in Grade 6. "He was a treasure, one of a kind. He'd be the first one to ask me how my day was going."
Ben was riding his bicycle home along Horner Ave. from a friend's house around 6: 40 p.m., police said. As he reached the corner of Sheldon Ave., a garbage truck made a right turn and crushed the boy, who was to celebrate his 12th birthday on Monday.
He was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy was performed yesterday.
Local residents say Horner Ave. is notoriously dangerous for children.
"People are always speeding and running lights on Horner," said Debby SINCLAIR, a neighbour and family friend.
In the past 10 years, there have been five accidents at the same intersection, three of which caused personal injuries. This was the first fatality.
A traffic light was recently put up at Beta St. and Horner Ave., four streets away, after complaints from the community, neighbours said.
Louise LEMIEUX, Ben's mother, would not speak to reporters but released a statement.
"I would like to thank the Alderwood community and the St. Ambrose community for their love and support at this difficult time," it read in part.
Throughout the day, Friends and neighbours streamed by the family's home to offer condolences. Residents on Connorvale Ave., just west of Kipling Ave., described Ben as a funny and outgoing boy. He loved playing street hockey, baseball, soccer and skateboarding. He leaves two younger brothers, Luke and Jacob.
Next-door neighbour Eric, whose mother asked that his last name not be used, said Ben was like a brother to him.
"I grew up with him through thick and thin," said the 17-year-old student at Father John Redmond Catholic Secondary School. "I taught him everything, how to fix his bike, how to skateboard. It's unbelievable he'd die this way."
Eric, whose younger brothers Nicholas, 11, and Christopher, 14, were also close with Ben, said he'll watch over the late boy's siblings like they were his own.
"I'm going to have to be a big brother figure to Luke and Jacob, too," he said.
"I'll always be here for them and Louise. I'll live here all my life, as long as they need me."
Artur and Maria PEREIRA, neighbours of the family, remember Ben as a newborn.
"He was an angel," said Artur. "You couldn't ask for a better son."
Ben, whose mother and father, Ed, are separated, was an altar boy at St. Ambrose Catholic Church. Neighbours said he shared a love of singing with his mother.
At least four social workers and two counsellors will be available to students and parents, school officials said.
LEMIEUX asked the community to pray for the driver of the garbage truck, whom she described as "the other victim of the accident."
Police have not released the name of the driver, who was reportedly traumatized and taken to hospital Wednesday night. The truck, owned by Turtle Island Municipal Services, was on contract to the City of Toronto.
Funeral arrangements have been made. Visitation will take place tomorrow at Ridley Funeral Home, 3080 Lake Shore Blvd. W., from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral mass will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday at St. Ambrose Church.

DIAS, Violet Marie Antoinette (née MONIZ)
Passed away on Saturday, September 24th, 2005, in Calgary, Alberta, after a brief illness at the age of 89 years. Although profoundly deaf since early childhood, Violet was a remarkable, beautiful and intelligent lady. She was a patient, gentle, loving, nurturing mother who raised five sons on three continents.

She was the only daughter of Edith (née D'SILVA) and Thomas MONIZ. Orphaned at the age of three, Violet was brought up by her maternal grandmother and her Uncle Anthony D'SILVA in Bombay where she met and married Dr. Vincent DIAS and had five sons (much to her great regret no daughters).

Neighbourhood feud turns deadly
By Henry STANCU, Staff Reporter
A man was shot to death and two of his brothers were also hit by bullets yesterday in what Friends say was an ongoing feud between neighbourhood groups.
It was one of two separate shootings within 90 minutes in Toronto.
Police and paramedics arrived at the second shooting scene to find three brothers hit by bullets in the city's west end.
Two of the victims were sprawled in the laneway off Turnberry Ave., near Old Weston and Rogers Rds., at about 5: 45 p.m.
"My brother is out there. Laying there. I can't believe this happened," said Paul PEREIRA, 31, after learning his brother Mario, 29, was dead.
The victim died instantly from a gunshot wound to the chest.
His brothers -- Pedro, 22, who was shot in the stomach, and Louis, 17, who was hit in the leg -- were both taken to hospital with serious but non life-threatening injuries.
One of the brothers staggered to a nearby home where a resident called 911.
"I heard about eight shots. One at first, then three and then some more," said PEREIRA, the oldest of five brothers and three sisters whose family lives in a home backing onto the laneway.
Friends gathered outside the home said there was a dispute in the same spot involving two large groups of area residents two evenings ago, but they dispersed when police arrived.
The victim, who lived with his mother, had a 2-year-old child.
About 90 minutes earlier, Carlene BLACKWOOD heard gunfire and people shouting before a wounded man burst into her Driftwood Crt. townhouse, near Jane St. and Finch Ave. W. in North York.
"Save me! Save me! They gonna kill me," cried the victim, who was shot in the back after fleeing a hail of bullets.
BLACKWOOD's 20-year-old daughter slammed the door shut just before a man started pounding on it, swearing and demanding to get at the 40-something victim.
"Let me kill him," BLACKWOOD heard one man shout before he ran around to her unit's backdoor and began pounding on it.
BLACKWOOD, a mother of four, called 911 to get help.
"I started screaming. I feel so nervous now that I want to move away. This happened just when the kids were coming home from school," she said.
Police cordoned off the cul-de-sac around the front the townhouse where as many as a dozen shell casings littered the road.
The victim was listed in serious condition with a bullet lodged near his spine. Police say he is expected to live.

Great Uncle of Hannah, Miles, Nathaniel, Gwen, Kyla and Emma. Pete was born in Hillegom, The Netherlands and was 11 years old when his family immigrated to Canada. They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service. The family invites all to attend the celebration of his life on Friday, November 11th, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. in the funeral home chapel. Pete's ashes will then be inurned at St. Peter's Cemetery. Memorial contributions to the London Health Sciences Foundation - Cancer Centre would be appreciated.
