RYALL, John David, C.A.
Born September 16, 1937 in Montreal. Died February 3, 2005, North York, after a four month illness. Retired Partner Grant Thornton LLP
Longstanding active and contributing member of the Kiwanis Clubs of Toronto and Montreal.
Only child of Edgar John (Jack) and Gertrude Irene (née LOVETT) who predeceased him by some years.
John was educated in Montreal and practiced there as a C.A. for two decades before moving to Toronto in 1983. He was noted for his technical expertise in assurance and a passion for working with companies in the mines and minerals sector. He loved mentoring junior members of the accounting profession and cultivating their skills. In retirement he found a new professional niche in chairing an audit committee for a public company and remained engrossed in this work throughout his illness.
He gave back to the community as a Kiwanian, as Treasurer of the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club and as Treasurer of his Condo Board where he is remembered for his gruffly delivered wit, Friendship and sense of humour.
Leaves to mourn, his partner in life, Andrea DEMCHUK and her son Severn MOZER who wish they'd had much more time with John. He was a quick study as step-father, knowing how to make life fun while providing much-appreciated guidance. For years to come, episodes of Star Trek and JAG will bring tears to our eyes, as will CNN, British Broadcasting Corporation world, takeout pizza and trips to Radio Shack, Canadian Tire and Costco. Nobody could talk things through like John. He brought meaning to life.
First cousin Marilyn YOUNG and her grown daughter (and John's much beloved Goddaughter) Lindsey YOUNG of Leaside.
Former wife Janice Morrison RIEHL of Houston, Texas and her husband Bernard. And too numerous to list here, all of John's wonderful Friends from his business and community work who took the time to call, or drop by the hospital or the local Keg. Andrea is especially grateful to all of you and to her Friends and family.
And John wanted all of the health professionals who provided care these past months to know how very highly he valued their work.
Memorial service will be held at Murray E. Newbigging Funeral Home, 733 Mt. Pleasant Rd. (south of Eglinton) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 12, 2005 Captain Geoff Ryan officiating.
If desired, donations to Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs, 101 Spruce Street, Toronto M5A 2J3, 416-925-2243 ext. 22.

MCINNES/MCINNIS, John Feeney " Jack"
Peacefully, on Thursday, June 9, 2005, a long time resident of Mt. Carmel, Ontario, more recently of Chateau Gardens, Parkhill, passed away at Strathroy Middlesex Hospital, at the age of 89. Survived by his wife, of over 50 years, Edythe CALLAHAN- MCINNES/MCINNIS. Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Ann and her husband Clive TONGE, Strathroy and son Paul and his wife Shelley MCINNES/MCINNIS of Mt. Carmel, brother Lawrence J. MCINNES/MCINNIS, sisters-in-law Margaret CALLAHAN, Sarnia and Beatrice CALLAHAN, Teeswater. He will be lovingly remembered by numerous nieces, nephews and Friends. Predeceased by parents Joseph and Margaret (FEENEY) MCINNES/MCINNIS brothers, Joseph A. (1967) and John Paul (1999); sisters, Elizabeth (1923) and Jeanne (1978).
Jack was born August 19, 1915 in London, Ontario where he grew up. After graduating De La Salle High School, he worked for The London Advertiser, Coca Cola Ltd. and Quinn Lumber. He and Edythe moved to Grand Bend, they owned and operated the Imperial Hotel for many years, where he was known by many as "Mr. Jack". During his life, construction was important to him. He moved, redesigned and built many homes. For a few years, he worked for the County of Bosanquet as a building inspector. Baseball was his lifetime passion. As a boy, he rode the baggage car with his father to see his beloved Detroit Tigers play ball. As a young man, he hitchhiked from Lambeth to get to the World Series in Detroit. If there was a game on the radio, it was playing in the car. In later years, he enjoyed horse racing. For years he and Edythe would pack up the car and go to Louisville on the first weekend of May to attend The Kentucky Derby. Many will remember him for his twinkling eyes and broad smile when entertaining Friends and family or driving his '68 Thunderbird; his endearing laugh and a heart of gold. The family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. WHYNOT, Jamie and the nursing staff in Intensive Care Unit Strathroy Hospital, and everyone at Chateau Gardens for their care and compassion. Resting at the T. Harry Hoffman & Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood, with visitation Monday, June 13, 2005 from 12: 30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., followed by the funeral mass at Our Lady of Mt.

RYAN, Nancy
In loving memory of a dear daughter and sister, Nancy, who was taken from us tragically 25 years ago today June 15, 1980.
When evening shadows are falling,
And we sit quietly alone,
To our hearts there comes a longing,
Wishing you could come home.
So many things to share with you,
Had you been allowed to stay,
No one knows the bitter pain,
We have suffered since we lost you,
Life has never been the same.
Your end was very sudden,
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
There is not a day dear Nancy
That we do not think of you,
No longer in our lives to share,
But in our hearts you are always there.
Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by Mom and Dad, brother Pat, sisters Colleen, Marianne, Dianne and their families.

RYAN, Jack (February 20th, 1929-December 1st, 2004)
In loving memory of a Dear Husband, Father and Grandfather, who passed away one year ago today. God saw you getting tired When a cure was not to be So He closed His arms around you And whispered "Come to me" You did not deserve what you went through And so He gave you rest. God's garden must be beautiful For He only takes the best. But when we saw you sleeping So peacefully from pain, We could not wish you back To suffer that again. If you had spoken before you died These are the words you'd have replied "Weep not for me but courage take And love one another for my sake". There is not a day that we do not think of you. Sadly missed by wife Lorine, by children Trevor, Angie, Colin, Margaret, Julie and Michael, and by grandchildren Marissa, Taylor, Noah and Jacob.

RYAN, Edward
In loving memory of Edward RYAN. Dear Dad, This day comes back with sad regrets; A day we will never forget, The blow was great, the shock severe, Dad, we never thought of losing you, maybe that was wrong, You were a part of us that would go on and on. Living our lives without you is the hardest part of all. We often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon our cheek. Remembering you is easy, we do it every day, But missing you is a heartache, that never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts and there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But will never be the same. What we'd give if we could say "Hello Dad" in the same old way. To hear your voice and see your smile, To sit with you and chat awhile. So, if you have a father, cherish him with care, For you'll never know the emptiness and heartache, 'Til you see his empty chair. Always in our hearts Dad. Your children Barbara, Carol, Brenda, Diane, Judy, Connie, James, Patrick, Michael and Danny.

In loving memory of Edward RYAN. I remember the day I met you, And the day God made you mine, I remember the day God took you, And will 'til the end of time. We made our vows together, Until death do we part, But the day God took you from me, My whole world fell apart. Sometimes I think I'm dreaming, I can't believe it's true, That I can go on living, When I no longer have you. And the memories of the happy years, When we were together: The joys, the tears, the love, the fears, Will stay with me forever. And when I'm sad and lonely, And everything goes wrong, I seem to hear you whisper, "Cheer up and carry on." Each time I see your picture, You seem to smile and say, "Don't cry, I'm only sleeping, We'll meet again some day." Sadly missed by your wife Hulda RYAN

MacDONALD, Finlay Michael
59, died Thursday morning, December 30, while playing tennis in Halifax.
Born in Sydney, August 2, 1945, he was the son of the late Senator Finlay MacDONALD and Ann (MacKENZIE) MacDONALD. He was educated at St. Francis and Saint Mary's University High School, St. Francis Xavier University and Dalhousie Law School. Finlay spent his professional life in broadcasting and politics.
Finlay began his broadcasting career at CJCH Radio in Halifax and then, while still in law school he moved on to television, creating the current affairs program ID which was the predecessor to ATV's top-rated Live at 5. After anchoring and reporting at CJOH-TV in Ottawa, Finlay became CTV's first national correspondent for Atlantic Canada. Finlay rose to the pinnacle of his profession when he was posted as a national reporter for CTV News on Parliament Hill. His marquee accomplishments included being the first Canadian journalist to ever interview Cuban President Fidel Castro in Finlay was an entrepreneur and an innovator. He built a pioneering television network, The Star Channel, which revolutionized the pay television industry in Canada. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was appointed to a Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission National Royal Commission. He later used his expertise to become one of the nation's leading regulatory and licensing consultants in the broadcasting industry.
Never one to seek the spotlight, Finlay offered counsel to countless successful business, political and professional leaders. A life-long lover of politics and a committed Progressive Conservative, Finlay was among the first to recognize the potential of Nova Scotia Premier John Hamm, and served as a trusted advisor from the premier's earliest days in politics.
Fin was a consummate gentleman whose compassion and style were legendary, as were his infectious laugh and his ability to live every moment to the fullest. Finlay loved tennis. He loved winters in Long Boat Key, Florida and summers in Chester. His idea of a perfect day was two sets of tennis in the morning, "tubing" with his nieces and nephew, two more sets of tennis in the afternoon and then some quiet time on the wharf with Maggie and the family dogs, Jack and Eddy.
He is survived by his beloved Maggie; sister Mary (Kevin) RYAN, Halifax; brother Ian (Sandra), all of Halifax. He is also survived by his nieces and nephew, Emmett and Katherine RYAN, and Sonja and Dana MacDONALD, all of Halifax.

Bob McADOREY, Broadcaster: 1935-2005
Deejay who helped determine what Toronto's youth listened to in the sixties went on to enjoy a 27-year run as a popular and irreverent figure on Global television
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - Page S9
Toronto -- If you knew Peggy Sue, you knew Bob McADOREY. That's because, with his pile of curly hair and horn-rimmed glasses, the Toronto disc jockey was a ringer for Buddy Holly, the songwriter and singer from Texas whose song was a hit in 1959. The two men were born 10 months apart -- McADOREY in 1935, Holly in 1936 and actually met in the mid-1950s when Mr. McADOREY was a disc jockey in Guelph, Ontario, and the singer was on a tour of Canada.
"His job was to introduce Buddy Holly at a concert at Kitchener. When he went on stage, the crowd went wild, and Bob though 'Gee, I didn't know I was this popular,' " remembered his sister Pat RUSSELL. "Of course, they thought he was Buddy Holly."
For decades, Mr. McADOREY was the entertainment commentator on Global Television; he retired less than five years ago. But in an earlier era, he was a household name in Southern Ontario. In 1960, just a few months after Buddy Holly died in a plane crash in 1959, his look-alike joined Toronto's CHUM. Almost overnight, Bob McADOREY became the top disc jockey at CHUM, the No. 1 rock station in the country. He was astonished when the station paid him what he was asking for -- $7,200 a year (about $50,000 in today's money, according to the Bank of Canada's inflation calculator).
"Bob McADOREY, whose face is as well known in Toronto as Mayor Givens, has the most power to dictate what pop music Ontario teens listen to," wrote the Toronto Telegram in 1966.
Not only was he the on-air man in the key 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. slot, he was also the music director. He chose the records the other six disc jockeys played. He and the other disc jockeys decided on CHUM's Top 10, which sent kids to record stores to buy records with a big hole in the middle and a song on each side. They spun at 45 revolutions a minute and were called 45s.
"He alone commands what goes on the hit parade in Canada," wrote The Globe's Blake KIRBY in 1968. "Middle-aged squares who run record stores use the CHUM chart, the weekly list of what McADOREY is playing and plugging as a buying guide."
Along the way, he shared the footlights with such big-name visitors as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
The CHUM hit parade made records such as The Unicorn by the Irish Rovers. Mr. McADOREY, a sentimental Irish-Canadian, pushed the record, which sold 140,000 copies in Canada and a million in the United States. But he didn't like everything on the CHUM chart. It was a business, after all.
"We're playing records here which I just can't bear to listen to, but I wouldn't let that influence what goes on the air," Mr. McADOREY once told The Globe and Mail. His sister said that when he went home after work, he was so sick of rock 'n' roll that he put earphones on and listened to classical music.
Like many successful big-city disc jockeys, Mr. McADOREY also ran dances on the weekends -- events with such names as Bob McAdorey's Canadian Bandstand or Canadian Hopville. He and a couple of other disc jockeys owned a company called Teen Scene Ltd., which put on dances in towns all over Southern Ontario.
After a long spell on CHUM, Bob McADOREY either was too old -- he was well into his 30s -- or too tired, and so he suddenly found himself fired. Unlike the regular corporate world, where people resign, in radio they are just plain sacked. Disc jockeys almost wear it as a badge of honour.
"There are no hard feelings," he told an entertainment writer in 1972 after he had been sacked from CFTR following a stint at CFGM. "I was told that it was either the station's new music-and-contests format or me." Within days, he had rejoined radio station CFGM.
A few years later, he morphed into television. No one told him that radio types, from the hot side of the Marshall McLuhan equation, are not supposed to be able to make the switch to the cool world of television. He perched on his stool in 1973 and performed for about 27 years.
Bob McADOREY was born within earshot of the Niagara Falls. His father worked as a machinist on the railway and the whole family lived near both the tracks and the roundhouse at Niagara Falls, Ontario For the rest of his life, Mr. McADOREY maintained a love affair with trains and rode them at every opportunity.
He went to high school at Stamford Collegiate. An Irish Catholic, he was one of two non-Protestants in the class. The other was Barbara FRUM, later the host of The Journal and As It Happens on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The two would spend the religious class in another room, enjoying their time off.
In Grade 12, Mr. McADOREY started work at the local radio station, doing a program in the early morning before class. "One day, the station manager told me to go on air and do the play-by-play of a local baseball game," he told the Toronto Star in 2000. "I didn't know the players' names and I didn't know much about baseball, so I sat in the bleachers and interviewed the spectators and it seemed to work."
After that, he was hooked. For a time, he worked all over -- including radio station CJDC in remote Dawson's Creek, British Columbia Even then, he was fairly outrageous. " CJDC had access to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation feeds," he said in 2000. "But nobody monitored us, so we sold everything -- the one o'clock time signal to a jewellery store, the Queen's Christmas Message brought to you by Sammy's Bar and Grill."
But it was soon after he had moved to Guelph, Ontario, that things really began to happen and he hit the big time at the age of 24 by working for CHUM.
Though he may have been at the top of the pop game in the Toronto of the sixties, he also became a national figure at Global as it expanded from a base in Southern Ontario to become the country's third network. He never applied for a job in television, it was just chance.
Bill CUNNINGHAM, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation foreign correspondent brought in to run Global News, hired him after he saw him speak during a tour of the new television station. At the time, Mr. McADOREY was working for Alan SLAIGHT, a prescient broadcaster who had run CHUM, bought CFGM and was one of the early owners of Global. Mr. CUNNINGHAM's plan was to lighten up the newscast and hire a kind of humourist-commentator. Thus, Mr. McADOREY covered entertainment and did light pieces for the newscast, heading out with a cameraman to find what he could. Once, during an Air Canada strike, he drifted out to Toronto's Pearson International Airport and happened to find Terminal 2 entirely deserted. The scene made irresistible camera fodder. The pair had time to erect an impromptu bowling alley and roll a few balls before the party was broken up by patrolling policemen.
The show was an enduring success. It helped that Mr. McADOREY was good-looking, possessed a great voice and was totally unaffected and unpretentious. Behind the scenes, though, Global was in turmoil and not just financially.
The network kept trying to reinvent itself. One idea was to bring in an untried newsreader, Suzanne PERRY, who was one of Pierre TRUDEAU's press aides and whose son, Matthew PERRY, went on to fame in the sitcom Friends. Sadly, Ms. PERRY was put on air before she was ready and that experiment failed.
A short while afterward, the network tried something called News at Noon, with Bob McADOREY doing entertainment, Mike ANSCOMBE the sports, and John DAWE, business. The three of them joked, made fun of each other, and did and said things you weren't supposed to see on television. All of a sudden, they had a huge audience, unheard of at that time of day.
"We broke new ground with 300,000 viewers at noon," said business reporter John DAWE. " Then it expanded and we did the 5: 30 news as well. We worked together for 14 years."
As he matured, Mr. McADOREY lost his Buddy Holly looks. Instead, he was often mistaken for another famous person with glasses and a mass of curly hair -- Ken TAILOR/TAYLOR, the Canadian ambassador to Iran who sheltered American colleagues during the 1979-80 hostage crisis.
At Global, the news department kept trying new things and new people, though the on-air staff remained pretty much the same. One producer didn't like the jocular format. And Mr. McADOREY didn't like him. He rebelled by being provocative on air.
"It's Friday, and I didn't really feel much like working today. The boss is out of town so I took it easy this afternoon, stretching out in my office, reading and daydreaming," he began his part of the 6 p.m. newscast on April 8, 1983. It got him fired.
"Unprofessional and insulting to the viewers," read the note from his pompous producer. The viewers thought otherwise. Phone lines buzzed and letters landed on all the right desks. Two weeks later, the producer was fired and Bob McADOREY was rehired.
As host of Entertainment Desk from 1991 to 1997, he guided it through many lively segments. Among the most memorable was the appearance of comedienne Judy Tenuta. "[She] pretty well took over the show, which bothered some viewers but not me," he once said. "Her wild style made for bizarre television. Most of the interview was done with Judy sitting on my lap making semi-lewd comments."
For all that, he never did like producers. At the time of his retirement in July, 2000, Andrew RYAN of The Globe and Mail asked him what advice he would give to aspiring young entertainment journalists. "Producers are dorks, actors are jerks," Mr. McADOREY answered. "The only ones worth talking to are directors."
Having been asked to retire, he said he had no expectations of a gold watch. Rather, "how about a gold boot up the butt? Retirement was not my idea. I always thought I had a few more good years left."
Instead, he chose to retire quietly at his home in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario His main hobby was reading and he was something of an authority on James Joyce. An Irish nationalist, he had a lifelong obsession with the great Dublin writer.
Robert Joseph McADOREY was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on July 24, 1935. He died on February 5 at St. Catharines, Ontario He was 70 and had suffered prolonged illness. He is survived by daughter Colleen, sister Pat and brother Terry. He was predeceased by his wife and by two of three children.

Of Mississauga, Ontario, formerly of Winnipeg. It is with profound sadness that we announce Marilyn's passing in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 27, 2005. Marilyn, affectionately called "Aunty MiMi" by her nieces, will be forever cherished by her husband Chris FREMONT, her family in Winnipeg: sister Evelyn MACKENZIE-REID (Chuck REID), nieces Diana MacKENZIE, Donna NELSON and family, her beloved Aunt Ishbel in Scotland and long time friend Joseph RYAN of Mississauga. She was predeceased by her parents Daisy and Jack MacKENZIE, Winnipeg. Marilyn loved her family, Friends, nature, all animals, music and was proud of her Scottish heritage. Her love for nature and animals was projected with her caring for all creatures great and small. Marilyn delighted in her daily visits feeding and watching the antics of "her Black squirrels", birds and other creatures. During her courageous battle with cancer, Marilyn's concern was not for herself but for her "Chrissy" as she so fondly called him. Marilyn reached out her hand and touched your heart. Cancer may have taken her away, but cherished memories will always remain. Chris and family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga for the care and compassion shown Marilyn. Marilyn requested cremation and no formal service.

RYAN, Edmund Joseph
At home, with his family by his side, Uncle Ed passed away on May 18, 2005 in his 87th year. He was the beloved brother and friend of John RYAN and Mary RYAN and will be forever missed. He was predeceased by his brother Jim and sister-in-law Kay. Edmund was the much loved uncle of Frank RYAN (Gail,) Jim RYAN (Gennifer,) Joe RYAN (Lori,) Kevin RYAN, Mary ELLIOT/ELLIOTT (Craig) and Patty BRADLEY (the late Graham.) He will always be remembered by Susie PENNY and her family. As a great-uncle, he had a special place in his heart for Laura, Erin, Theresa, Lindsay, John and Kathleen. A sincere thank you to his caregiver Marvi BECKFORD. Edmund, his sister and two brothers were raised on Baccalieu Island, Newfoundland. As the fourth and last generation of RYANs to be lighthouse keepers on Baccalieu, Uncle Ed was part of a legacy that kept the light burning on Baccalieu for almost a century.

son hides as mother of 3 slain
Female suspect seen fleeing after stabbing
By Alejandro BUSTOS and Jim RANKIN, Staff Reporters
In the stale midday heat, a woman stepped from a townhouse on Dorney Ct. and broke into a run. She urged the three young children with her to do the same, yelling at them to keep up. Inside, another woman -- a best friend, say neighbours -- was in the process of bleeding out from a stab wound to the chest.
That is how Toronto's 29th homicide of 2005 began yesterday.
Following a search of a nearby home, led by the Emergency Task Force, police last night were still piecing together what happened, and weren't ready to name a suspect in the killing of a single mother with three children, whom neighbours identified as Susan CAMPBELL.
At least one of the slain woman's children, a young boy, was home at the time of the stabbing, said neighbours in the townhouse complex near Lawrence Ave. W. and Allen Rd.
The boy was hiding upstairs when the first two officers arrived on the scene, said Nicola, a neighbour who donned a pair of gloves and tried to help police stop the flow of blood from a wound 4 centimetres wide in the middle of CAMPBELL's chest.
"The boy told police who did it," said Nicola, who did not give her last name.
The two women were close, neighbours said.
"They were best Friends," said Veniece MORGAN, who lives next door to CAMPBELL. " They were together all the time." Neighbours said both women had three children and the children often played together.
CAMPBELL, in her early 30s, also had knife wounds on an arm, and was struggling to get up as Nicola and the police tried to control the bleeding. She was also talking. "Give me some water. I need to get up," Nicola recalled her saying.
There were also signs of a struggle, splatters of blood in the kitchen and smears on the wall, she said. "She bled out a lot," Nicola said. "You could tell that she was struggling."
Another next-door neighbour, who arrived before Nicola, said she could hear her "neighbour fighting with someone."
"They were cussing each other," said the neighbour, who didn't want to be named. "And I heard the walls banging and then heard someone fall down the stairs."
She then saw a second woman with three young kids -- two girls and one boy -- run out of the victim's home. At this point, the neighbour went outside and peered into the home through the open front door. "I saw blood on the walls and I saw her lying on the floor and she was screaming for help," she said.
A young boy who was with the woman running away from the townhouse asked to use a neighbour's phone but was told to keep on running, said Tina, another neighbour, who did not want her last name published.
Another resident of Dorney Ct. said she saw a woman with three young kids flee the area.
"They (the children) couldn't catch up with her because they were slow," said the resident, who also did not want to give her name.
"The little boy was saying, 'Mommy,' and he was crying."
CAMPBELL was rushed to hospital but later died.
Homicide Det. Stephen RYAN arrived at the scene last night and could only confirm that there had been a death.

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.
