Forces instructor dies parachuting at Trenton
By Colin FREEZE and Unnati GANDHI, Tuesday, October 4, 2005, Page A2
A military paratrooper instructor was killed yesterday during a training exercise, the second time in as many years that there has been a fatal accident at Canadian Forces Base Trenton.
Warrant Officer Charles SHEPPARD, 43, was pronounced dead at 12: 45 p.m. on a day of clear skies and light winds, officials said.
"The cause is under investigation," said Lieutenant Morgan BAILEY, a spokeswoman for the military. "The soldier was an experienced jumper."
She said Warrant Officer SHEPPARD, who had completed more than 2,500 jumps and had been in the Canadian Forces for 19 years, was leading a freefall course at the base's Mountain View detachment.
"Warrant Officer SHEPPARD and I soldiered together for many years and I knew him as a passionate and professional leader," said Colonel David FRASER, Commander of 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group.
Warrant Officer SHEPPARD, originally from Galt, Ontario, was temporarily working at the Canadian Parachute Centre Canadian Forces Base Trenton. He was attached to the 3rd Battalion of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in Edmonton.
The parachute centre at Trenton trains hundreds of soldiers for both military operations and search and rescue missions, and also the Sky Hawks jumping team, which performs at dozens of events each year.
In September of 2003, Lieutenant Colonel Mike BLANCHETTE, the commander of the Trenton parachute centre, was killed when he detached his parachute too early as he jumped from a helicopter above the Bay of Quinte. A coroner eventually determined that Lt. Col. BLANCHETTE, a 30-year veteran, died an accidental death, and ruled out equipment failure.
Fatal accidents involving military submarines and Snowbird airplanes have attracted much attention in recent months, but the Canadian Forces has also seen its share of parachute problems over the years.
Earlier this year a "severe landing" caused a soldier to be hospitalized for serious back and hip injuries, as well as a collapsed vertebrae, after an accident at the parachute centre.
In 2002, two Alberta soldiers got their parachutes entangled during search and rescue training, but escaped with only minor injuries after managing to untangle themselves at the last minute.
In 1998, a soldier broke his leg after hitting a tree during a performance at the International Air Show in Toronto.
In 1989, nine Canadian paratroopers with the Airborne Regiment died during a car accident and airplane crash that occurred within two days. The previous year, a Canadian Forces paratrooper died during a recreational jump at the Ganonoque airport.
In 1981, a private with the Airborne died on his fourth jump, a "freak accident".

Terrified patrons flee as bullets spray crowd
Widowed mother of 4 shot dead at club
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter, With files from Michelle SHEPPARD
It was to have been a night of joy and laughter, a night to forget a year of sorrow.
Instead it was a night of violence and gunfire that left a young Brampton widow and mother of four small children shot to death on a nightclub floor.
Livvette MOORE, whose husband died from cancer last year, had been struggling to raise her children and balance the demands of a new job. So Friends encouraged the 26-year-old to join them at a birthday party Saturday night at Prestige Palace, a restaurant on Milvan Dr. in North York.
But shortly after 3: 30 a.m., gunmen, who smuggled handguns past security guards at the front door, opened fire, spraying bullets across a room crowded with more than 200 partygoers.
MOORE was caught in the crossfire and died within moments.
A part-owner of the Jamaican-themed nightspot, near Finch Ave. W. and Weston Rd., was critically wounded and taken to Sunnybrook hospital. Five others wounded by stray bullets made it to hospitals on their own.
Police were able to easily identify MOORE. The names and faces of her children -- Jaheel, 10, Chanel, 7, Deandre, 6 and Tyrel, 5 -- were tattooed on her upper right arm.
"It's a tragedy on a tragedy," said Homicide Det. Wayne BANKS, who said shots were still being fired as officers arrived at the scene.
"We've lost a young lady, one of our citizens that was here to enjoy a party. She's been gunned down in the early part of her life and it's just disgusting."
The reaction was all that and more on a dead-end street in a Brampton townhouse complex, where relatives and Friends gathered to mourn MOORE and rally around her children.
"There are four little ones I have to take care of now," said her father, Amos REID, who fought back tears and rubbed at red-rimmed eyes as he spoke of his dead daughter.
"She was my daughter and my friend," he said, leaning on son Kevin for support as he clutched a wrinkled photograph of Livvette.
"She was everything to me.
"I talked to the Creator this morning," he said. "Because only He knows what's going on with this young generation. We've got to change our style. It's not good. It's killing us, big time, big time."
REID, 53, said Livvette didn't drink and had joined Friends at the party to try to find some pleasure as she worked to get over her husband Sean's death.
"She just went out to have fun and then that's how it ended," he said.
"She's good, she's good, she's good, all the way good."
The killing was Toronto's 18th homicide this year. It came two hours before another shooting at a downtown club that wounded an employee of the Film Lounge.
The party at Prestige Palace began Saturday night and carried on into the early hours yesterday morning.
It was billed on flyers as the third annual Birthday Bash for Michelle BLESS, but the club was open to anyone.
Cardboard cutout stars hung from the ceiling; pastel balloons and streamers lined the walls. Mylar balloons filled with helium, one in the shape of a champagne bottle, blew outside in the breeze.
The dance floor was packed when the shooting began. At first, some of the dancers at the nightclub kept moving to the reggae beat, thinking it was just the balloons popping. Then the panic hit.
"Everybody starting running, so I just got caught up in it, everything happened so fast," a 28-year-old woman recalled.
"I ended up basically under a table with a whole bunch of other people and the shots continued to go off. Maybe about six shots or more.
"We were under there for maybe a minute, minute-and-a-half and then everybody got up to run to the door."
witnesses: said gunfire continued outside in the parking lot as police arrived. The window of a car parked in front of the two-storey strip plaza where the club is located was shattered by a bullet.
Bill BLAIR, who is to be sworn in as Toronto's new police chief tomorrow, talked to investigators at the scene.
One man who arrived as other patrons were fleeing said he didn't think twice. "It's common sense," he said. "You see girls running and guys running.
"Are you going to go and stand? You get out of there, too."
A regular partygoer said the usual security staff weren't working the club for the party.
"They had to bring in at the last minute a new set of security guards," he said. "So a certain set of people come and see an opportunity and take it... to get in with their weapons.
"The regular security know who to search and where to search."
He said a handful of "idiots" regularly show up at dances and parties with weapons but are turned away by security guards.
"They're kids, they're young punks, 19 or 20," he said. "They drink all day and smoke all day and go out at night looking for trouble.
"It's just a small portion of the community and they make it bad for everybody else."
Another partygoer said security guards at the door were looking in bags and patting down some people, but there were no metal detectors.
"I just want to know how the killer feels," said one teenager who left the club in a cab after running from the shooting, too scared to collect her car in the parking lot.
"Were those shots meant for her? How could he do that?"
Also yesterday, Toronto police were investigating a shooting at the Film Lounge club just before 5 a.m. A 33-year-old employee was shot as he stood outside the club on Dundas St. W. near Beverley St.
A year ago, a bouncer was shot at the after-hours bar. A few weeks earlier a Kitchener teenager had died after taking ecstasy there.
Yesterday, an off-duty paramedic treated the victim before he was taken to hospital for surgery. He is expected to survive. Police said the shooting took place at the club entrance.
In Halton, police made a quick arrest yesterday in the region's first homicide of the year after a 45-year-old Acton resident was stabbed to death Saturday night. A 44-year-old man was arrested after a fight at a Maria St. home. Police said he knew the victim.
