She was taken from us far too soon, only in her 44th year. With so many things she wanted to see and do, she left behind the best of herself in our only grand_son, Paul. Like all of us, her life was filled with many joys, but also many trials. She had asked God to allow her to see her son grow up. She should have asked to see her son married and have children. Finally, she can rest peacefully, no longer weighed down with the worries of this world.

Jamaican visitor killed, execution-style
Shooter stood over young father of two and emptied his pistol, witnesses: say
By Tim LAI, Thursday, July 21, 2005, Page A9
Before Shamari BELNAVIS was killed in an execution-style shooting Tuesday night, he grabbed his four-year-old brother and moved him out of harm's way.
The 20-year-old man had been shot at least once already, but Mr. BELNAVIS lifted young Jaden over a railing to safety.
Then, according to Mr. BELNAVIS's family and neighbours, he was shot repeatedly.
"After [the shooter] shot my brother and my brother fell, he stood over him and emptied the clip of the gun," said Shenika SIMMS, Mr. BELNAVIS's sister.
The 16-year-old sister was acting as the family's spokeswoman yesterday.
About 8: 30 p.m. Tuesday, Ms. SIMMS said, she stepped inside her townhouse on Humber Boulevard -- near Weston Road and Black Creek Drive -- to put a dish in the sink and grab a glass of milk after being lectured by her older brother, who had come from Kingston to visit.
Then the blasts came.
"We thought they were firecrackers at first because of the way the guns were popping. There was more than one gun shooting at the same time," she said.
Mr. BELNAVIS is the city's 33rd homicide victim of the year. He was also the father of a young son and daughter -- and also soon to be a father again.
Large blood stains were still soaked into the concrete where he fell and Mr. BELNAVIS's stepmother tried to resuscitate him. Yesterday, she was sitting on the railing over the last spot he was alive with tears in her eyes and a hand covering her mouth in disbelief, too shaken to talk.
Mr. BELNAVIS was pronounced dead at the scene, steps away from where a couple of dozen children -- including toddlers -- were playing, a typical summer night, according to residents in the townhouse complex. Just before the shooting, many of the children had left the central playing area to practise for a Caribana event. Residents said if the shooters had come out of the van earlier -- some say they were circling the area for an hour -- children could have been killed.
"Once again, we have a senseless and tragic shooting of a youth in our community," Detective Sergeant Gerry CASHMAN of the homicide squad said at a press conference.
Three males were seen fleeing in an older-model Plymouth or Dodge van. Descriptions of the van's colours ranged from maroon and burgundy to brown.
Det. Sgt. CASHMAN said the men are described as black and in their late teens or early 20s.
While police are seeking the public's assistance, Det. Sgt. CASHMAN said, the squad has many leads and it's more of a matter of when, not if the police will make an arrest.
"Contact their lawyer and turn themselves in, because we are coming and we will get them," he said about the attackers.
Police say that they are unsure of a motive but that Mr. BELNAVIS was targeted.
"You don't fall down and have somebody up over you while you're down on the ground and pump shots into you unless they came to kill you," said Mr. BELNAVIS's father, Pattel SIMMS.
He said his son loved cars and was an apprentice to become a mechanic. Mr. BELNAVIS would buy old cars, fix them up and sell them.
His son was outgoing and well liked by many people, especially in the community where he was killed, Mr. SIMMS said.
"Just by coming to look for his family, this is how he ended up getting killed," he said.
His mother, Alicia BELNAVIS, said her son was a fun-loving guy, always surrounded by girls. She was stunned when news reached her.
"I flipped out," she said.
Shenika SIMMS said her brother was the classic example of the old adage -- don't judge a book by its cover.
"He looks like a gangster. He looks like he'll murder you if you look at him, but he was a really nice person," she said.
It wasn't the first time Mr. BELNAVIS had been shot, according to Ms. SIMMS. He was wounded in the leg in a prior incident.
Mr. BELNAVIS had come to visit from Kingston, where he was trying to leave behind his previous life -- he was known by police there and start anew.
"He'd done stuff that any normal teenage boys from Jane and Finch would do -- gang banging and all that. He was trying to change his life from all of that," his sister said.

Drive-by shooting narrowly missed kids
Children aged 3 to 15 had just moved from attack site
2nd unidentified man wounded in west-end area
By Alejandro BUSTOS, Staff Reporter
A large group of children barely escaped being hit by gunfire as a young man was gunned down near the home of close relatives in west Toronto.
Shamari BELNAVIS, 20, was killed Tuesday evening after being shot in a townhouse complex on Humber Blvd., near Weston Rd. and Black Creek Dr. A second unidentified man, 19, was wounded and released from hospital, police said.
Neighbours said yesterday the shooting could have been much worse. Roughly two dozen children were playing British bulldog in the area, before moving to a neighbour's house to practise for Caribana moments before the attack.
"If they hadn't moved, at least six of them would have been shot," said Natasha RUDDOCK, 15, who was with the group of youngsters aged 3 to 15.
BELNAVIS' half-sister Shenika SIMMS, 16, said she and her mother had just moved into the Humber Blvd. home June 1, but would now likely move.
BELNAVIS was the father of a boy, 2, and girl, 3 1/2; his current girlfriend was pregnant with a third child. He grew up in the Jane-Finch area but was not living in Toronto.
Neighbours yesterday said early Tuesday evening a vehicle pulled into the parking lot behind SIMMS' home. Two men jumped out and started to run down a short path into the townhouse complex. A third man stayed in the driver's seat.
When the men started to shoot at BELNAVIS, said residents, he lifted 4-year-old Jaden JAMES, the half-brother of SIMMS, behind the fence to protect him.
SIMMS said BELNAVIS had just been telling her "You are my little sister and you have to grow up like a princess."
The last words he said to her were, "Before I die, I want you to become a celebrity."
Moments later, SIMMS walked into her home and heard gunshots.
Police, who responded to the call around 8: 30 p.m., said they are looking for three suspects in their late teens or early 20s who were driving an older-model, maroon Dodge Caravan.
The shooting was not an accident, said police.
One neighbour said her daughter, who was in the group of children, was traumatized.
"My daughter told me, 'Mommy, I don't want you to go outside, because I don't want you to be shot,'" she said.

Dead teen will be missed
By Chris SIMON, Thursday, June 23, 2005
He was a good son, brother and boyfriend. Brian DUNCAN, an 18-year-old Eastview Secondary School student, died Tuesday following a bicycling accident in Barrie earlier this week.
“He was really funny,” said his younger sister Stephanie, eyes red, a tissue box positioned between her and Brian's girlfriend, Laura HANNA. “He was really thoughtful and caring.&rdquo
Laura and Brian had been dating for about a year. Wearing a red dress and a flower in her hair, Laura attended the prom with Brian by her side. He wore a black suit, tie and vest with a white shirt.
“There was nobody that didn't like him,” Laura said, tears running down her face.
“He was a good man like his dad. He always wanted peace -- he was so happy.&rdquo
It's that sense of happiness Brian's Friends will miss.
“We did everything together,” said pal Shawn HUMBLE, noting he played basketball and hockey with Brian.
“He's down to earth with you. It was unexpected for all of us. I didn't think it was true. (Brian) was the guy you could always count on. If you needed something, he would always be there.
“Anyone who didn't know him... it's unfortunate because they missed out on what could have been a great Friendship.&rdquo
Brian's relationship with his mother and father was a strong one, his sister said. Brian lent a hand whenever he could at his father's store.
“He was always really good with my parents,” she said.
Brian and Laura were planning on attending the University of Waterloo together in September.
He enjoyed history and politics.
But Brian also played sports.
He loved bicycling.
“He played hockey pretty much his whole life,” said Stephanie.
Brian lived in Barrie, in the same house, his entire life. However, the family used to visit a cousin's cottage.
“He liked the cottage,” said Laura, whispering many of her words, between sips from her glass.
Duncan was riding his bike a short distance from his home on private property.
He hit a retaining wall, was thrown from the bike and landed a short distance away.
His head hit a concrete walkway. However, he was not wearing a helmet and sustained severe head trauma. A passerby called for an ambulance.
Barrie Police Sgt. David GOODBRAND said Duncan was taken off life support, after being listed in critical condition at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto June 21. He was airlifted from Royal Victoria Hospital to St. Michael's.
“Basically, it was a result of severe head trauma,” he said.
Eastview's exam schedule has been lengthened to accommodate grieving students.
“They were of the opinion that they should just soldier on with exams, and then deal with family matters,” said Bruce BOYES, Eastview vice-principal.
Grief counsellors were at the school Wednesday and a “fellowship room” was set up to assist students dealing with the tragedy.
“I think a lot of the senior students who knew him are numbed,&rdquo BOYES said. “It doesn't hit them until later. That's what I have seen in my experience with teens.&rdquo
“I'd say the atmosphere here is very sombre,” he said. “We are just trying to be as supportive as we can be.&rdquo
The funeral service will take place at Grace United Church on Saturday at 2 p.m. Friends may attend the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home on Friday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Man dead, mother clinging to life after head-on crash
By Chris SIMON, Wednesday, August 10, 2005
A 31-year-old woman is in serious condition, while her seven-month-old son escaped without injury following a two vehicle collision on Highway 400 about 11 a.m. yesterday.
Alliston resident April SOBISCH was airlifted to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre in Toronto with serious injuries, after her silver Pontiac Grand Prix collided with a white Jeep Cherokee near the Dunlop Street on ramp. The driver of the Cherokee, 67-year-old Huntsville resident George LABBE, was pronounced dead at Royal Victoria Hospital.
LABBE was driving southbound in the northbound lanes of the highway when the accident occurred. The vehicle was allegedly traveling in the inside lane, at a rate of speed that kept up with southbound traffic, said Donna TONN, who passed LABBE's vehicle moments before the collision.
“I don't know what speed he was going, but he wasn't going slow,&rdquo she said. “Nobody's ever going to know what he was thinking. But when I saw him, he had to have realized he was going the wrong way. He never slowed down going past us.&rdquo
Traffic was routed off the highway as police investigated the collision. The Jeep sat crushed on the highway's centre guard rail, while the Grand Prix's door sat surrounded by shards of glass in the middle of the northbound lanes. The baby's white child seat sat underneath the guard rail.
People watched from the Anne and Dunlop Street bridges, others from behind a rusting metal fence.
The baby was transported to Royal Victoria Hospital for precautionary measures. He was later picked up by his father at the hospital, said Ontario Provincial Police Constable Julia McCUALT.
“The seven month old boy, because his car seat was properly installed, had no injuries,” she said. “The baby's okay.
I'm amazed this baby survived and there was no harm. That was the nice news today."
The car seat was properly installed, turned backwards in the back seat of the vehicle. Once the child reached about 20 pounds or one year old, the child seat can be turned around, said McCUALT.
“When the baby's strong and the neck is stronger, the child can be turned around, but still in the back seat,” she said. “That's when the child's best protected.&rdquo
However, it is not yet known why LABBE was traveling southbound in a northbound lane.
“He got himself turned around and the collision resulted,” said McCUALT. “No indication of (the reason) yet. The investigation is ongoing.&rdquo
The collision closed all three northbound lanes and one southbound lane on the highway for at least four hours.
A post mortem to determine LABBE's cause of death will be conducted at Royal Victoria Hospital today.

Two killed in truck crash
By Chris SIMON, Thursday, August 25, 2005
Two people are dead following a two-vehicle collision near Stayner early Wednesday morning.
Ontario Provincial Police say they were not wearing seat-belts.
Kelly PERKIN, 27, of Stayner and Daniel HOULE, 23, of Stroud, died after their Ford pickup truck collided with a black 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier on Centre Line Road, north of County Road 9, in Clearview Township at about 1: 40 a.m.
Ontario Provincial Police say the truck was travelling south, when it crossed the centre line and sideswiped the car. The truck then entered a ditch and rolled several times.
A third occupant of the truck, 25-year-old Mary Kate MILLIGAN of Wasaga Beach, sustained minor injuries.
All three were ejected from the vehicle since they were not wearing seat-belts, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Julia McCUALT.
(“MILLIGAN) was very lucky, very fortunate,” she said. “They believe alcohol and speed were contributing factors at the time of this collision. Also, none of them were wearing their seat-belts.&rdquo
PERKINS was pronounced dead at the scene, while HOULE and MILLIGAN were transported to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital. HOULE was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
MILLIGAN was treated and released.
The car's driver, Jacob LALKENS, 39, of Stayner was not injured.
No charges have been laid, as the investigation continues, said McCUALT.
“They'll probably be interviewing people as the week goes on,&rdquo she said.
With several recent vehicle collision fatalities in the Barrie area -- including two along Highway 400 during the last two weeks people should understand the need to wear a seat-belt, said McCualt.
Two people that died in those collisions were not wearing seat-belts.
“Recently, (with) the fatalities on the highway, it's such a high percentage of people dying because they weren't wearing their seat-belt,” said McCUALT.
In the most recent collision, Uxbridge resident Scott BRETT, 18, died on Highway 400 last week, just outside of Barrie. Two other occupants in the car -- both 18 -- were transported to hospital.
At least three of the vehicle occupants were not wearing seat-belts when that collision occurred.
