Mom, 2 kids slain
Nine-year-old girl escapes ordeal to call police
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A terrified, barefoot nine-year-old girl frantically knocked on neighbours' doors to get help for her mother and two siblings held hostage yesterday by a man inside an east London home.
By the time gunfire subsided at 682 Princess Ave., four people were dead, two police officers were shot and a city was in shock over the slayings of a woman, her 13-year-old daughter and five-year-old son.
Police didn't identify the victims yesterday.
But relatives confirmed that Halina CZUBA, her 13-year-old daughter, Julia, and five-year-old son, Michal, died after gunfire erupted at their house just east of Adelaide Street about 2: 30 a.m.
The body of a man also was found inside the home. The province's Special Investigations Unit said the man, who hasn't been identified, died of a gunshot wound.
Halina's husband, Jan, is a trucker who was in the United States at the time of the deadly shooting.
"Jan is just devastated. He's in shock," Dominik SZYMANSKI, a relative who tutored the children, said yesterday. "They were all bright kids. It's just unbelievable that this could happen."
What happened inside the house is still a mystery.
"This is a very large tragedy, the details of which will unfold in the days to come," Const. Jeff ARBING said.
The couple's third child, nine-year-old Joanna CZUBA, knocked on at least three neighbours' houses trying to help her family.
"She knocked on our door, it was a panicked knock," said a neighbour, who didn't give her name.
When the woman's husband went outside to check who was at the door, he saw Joanna with neighbours.
The child called 911 at 2: 25 a.m. to report someone was beating her mother.
Two minutes later, two police officers approached the front door when a shotgun blast from inside blew a hole through it, striking one officer in the shoulder and arm and grazing another officer's face.
The officers returned fire, the Special Investigations Unit said.
It's unclear whether the unidentified man died of a self-inflicted gunshot or from the exchange with police.
Joanna and the neighbours were still outside when shots were fired and police ordered them into the neighbour's Elizabeth Street house.
Joanna was petrified but unhurt, the neighbour said.
"I took her in the kitchen, sat her down and rubbed her back," the woman said. "She saw what (the gunman) was doing to her mom."
Joanna didn't recognize the gunman, the woman said.
Neighbour Ron HARPER said he heard a sharp knock on his door about 2: 30 a.m., but didn't think much of it.
"Then I heard five shots and someone yell, 'I'll kill them all,' " he said.
When HARPER looked outside, he saw police hitting the house with a battering ram.
"The next thing I know, I saw them (the officers) running back with two kids. They were pretty limp," he said.
"When they put them in the ambulances, the ambulances didn't leave right away so I don't think they made it."
Dan and Tammy STROM were sleeping when police pounded on their door and used the location to monitor the brown brick bungalow across the street.
Heavily armed tactical officers told the couple and their two frightened children to go to the basement and keep their heads down, Dan STROM said.
"It was a little nerve-wracking," he said. "The police were in and out and then I heard, 'Freeze! London police."
A 13-year veteran and rookie with one year on the force were injured by the shotgun blast. The constables were taken to hospital and later released.
"They were shaken, but relieved," police Chief Murray FAULKNER said of the officers' families. "This is one of these situations where as a husband, wife or partner of a police officer, you dread the call."
The Special Investigations Unit was called in to investigate the man's death. London police are investigating the homicides of the woman and her two children.
Neither the Special Investigations Unit or London police were releasing many details about the four deaths.
"You have to understand this was not the usual man-with-a-gun call," FAULKNER said. "Police entered because we are sworn to protect life, so that's why the incident wrapped up quicker than normal."
Police have been to the address before, sources confirmed, but would not say why.
Dan STROM said his neighbours, the CZUBAs, were a quiet, friendly Polish family who didn't speak much English. They had lived at the house for about 15 years.
Besides the shot officers, two tactical officers were treated for smoke inhalation after a small fire, believed to be arson, broke out.
London police called in counsellors to speak to colleagues of the injured officers, FAULKNER said.
All day a London detective worked alongside an Special Investigations Unit investigator, carefully documenting the scene. Blood marks could be seen on the front porch. Some windows of the home were shattered.
Just before 9 a.m., a detective and uniformed officer brought out the family's pet -- a trembling dachshund puppy.
Police evacuated homes one street north of Princess on Elias Street. Neighbours were told it was because of a gas leak and saw Union Gas on scene.

Bernie SHARE, 74: Kitsch king of Queen St.
His antique store a neighbourhood clubhouse
'He was so positive, so uplifting'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Staff Reporter
Bernie SHARE's funeral on April 17 was fit for the king he was. His partner, Susan, moved some of his favourite things -- Iranian carpets, the carved ornamental side tables, the bobble-headed hula dolls, the jelly mould in the shape of a naked female torso, the elf cookie jar and salt and pepper set, and five of the 40-plus cowboy hats he owned -- down Queen St. W. into four rooms of the Bates and Dodds funeral home.
SHARE, 74, was the man who owned a neighbourhood mecca. Officially it was an antique store called Gallery and Innovations; unofficially the cluttered storefront with its wondrous wares tumbling out onto the sidewalk on the south side of Queen near Niagara St. was a neighbourhood clubhouse for the denizens of this neighbourhood and customers from all over the city.
Everybody knew the guy with the English accent in the three-piece suit and the cowboy hat, and lots of them referred to him as the King of Queen St. He'd owned one store or another in the area for well over 25 years and it was in one of them 23 years ago that he met Susan. A single mom of three boys working as a waitress in the area, she'd often walked past the store but rarely stopped. "I thought it was a weird junk store," she said, unaware of the valuable chandeliers and art deco pieces often piled one on top of the other inside.
But one day she spotted an Iranian carpet and, uncharacteristically, knew she had to own it. SHARE readily agreed she could take it and pay him the $600 in four instalments. "I was impressed. He'd never seen me before and he trusted me," she recalled.
But that was how he worked.
"I don't think he even kept a ledger. I'd admire something; he'd say 'There's a crack in it.' He'd say something was $300. You'd say 'You sure'? He'd say $275," said Agnes HANNA, a neighbour and former teacher at the local Givens Shaw public school. He gave her many items for her kindergarten classes.
"I'd see a set of maracas, a teddy bear, a little chair, for the kids. 'Take it,' he'd say. 'Take it.'"
For her own Queen St. home, HANNA once spotted a late 1800s chaise longue in the rain out in front of the store with only three legs. SHARE got the fourth leg carved for her.
He would sit inside at the front of his store, a cup of coffee in his hand, surrounded by antiques and kitsch. The chairs would change, as they were sold, but the feeling was the same: this was a living room in which anyone was welcome to sit and chat. "Like an old village gathering," HANNA said.
Neighbourhood artists used to drop by, often for career advice. The talks often went on past closing time, turning into coffee-fuelled discussions of art and life and truth that lasted till midnight. In the summer, the salons, for that's what they were, moved outside and SHARE would sit there on the sidewalk amid his treasures, in suit and Stetson -- looking as if he were dressed for a wedding, HANNA said -- and talk to just about anyone passing by.
Often there was music. Susan remembers a time when a passing musician noticed a guitar SHARE had brought outside and asked if he could play it. Soon he was joined by a musician who lived next door, then by another local talent. Encouraged by SHARE, they played on... till 3 the next morning. Neighbours and strangers came, sat, sang, laughed and chatted. It was a night of magic that could only happen in the big city and that was always happening at the store and around SHARE.
Which is why Susan was determined to take that feeling to the funeral home. Together she and SHARE had a combined family of 11 children, but SHARE also knew street people and people from showbiz from when he used to supply props to movie and theatre sets. Many of these people came to say goodbye and stayed to celebrate their friend. Three members of the talented O'Hara family were there: actress Catherine, singer-songwriter Mary Margaret and SHARE's former neighbour, Marcus, from when he owned the Squeeze Box Club next door.
Several of the local restaurants spontaneously sent over trays of food, as his friend and neighbour Roger CLOWN wandered through the rooms plucking SHARE's favourite Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson tunes on his banjo. "It was a carnival atmosphere. Dad would have loved it," said his daughter Maxine SHARE- STROM.
People signed the guest book, scribbling all over and in the corners what he meant to them. Two of his Friends, Sheldon WAGNER, a psychiatrist, and musician Rick CAPREOL spontaneously sat down together for several sets of the blues.
And most everyone there had a story. An Iranian gentleman said SHARE was the first friend he and his wife, an Iranian princess, made in Canada. One of SHARE's business colleagues recalled delivering props to the then O'Keefe Centre for a show featuring Diane Keaton. SHARE assured him they could go to the stage door, that Keaton knew him. His colleague was skeptical and the security guard there was downright hostile, readying for a heave-ho, when suddenly a throaty female voice behind him called: "Bernie. Hi." It was Keaton.
SHARE was born in Flushing, Long Island, in 1930 to conservative Jewish parents who returned to England when he was 5. He was 25 and a talented but reluctant tailor when he married his first wife, Annette. They came to Canada in 1960 and opened up an antique store on Queen St. E. at Larchmount. They had a second store in the area that Maxine SHARE- STROM ran when she was 11.
She remembers being so excited to tell her father she had sold a six-place setting of Wedgwood china for $12. "He just smiled at me and said 'Good for you, honey,'" Later he showed her the setting in the reference book, telling her that it may have been worth "a little more" (it was worth probably $1,000 at the time) but that this was a good lesson for her to learn the value of things.
"That was my father. He was so positive, so uplifting," she said.
At the time, he was driving a cab to augment the family's income. SHARE- STROM remembers waking up some mornings to find a stranger asleep on the sofa, another fare down on his luck whom her father had brought home for a few days.
He moved the two stores to the Queen and Sherbourne Sts. area, and added a third across the street. All were called My Place. Later he crossed Yonge St. to set up another shop, this one on Queen St. W. closer to Bathurst St. SHARE- STROM had just graduated from high school, but she also opened a store there, across the street from her father's. "I am my father," she said. "Dad taught me to be fearless."
SHARE- STROM describes herself as the second daughter of SHARE's first "litter" of six children: five girls and a boy. Later, after his marriage ended, he had two more daughters from another relationship before meeting Susan and virtually adopting her three sons.
Now one of them, Kerry SARTZETAKIS, will be running the business with Susan.
She won't close. She can't. SHARE's presence is everywhere in this store, with its bric-a-brac, books, hat boxes, African carvings, brass beds, Czech glass and Raggedy Ann dolls. One of his cowboy hats is hanging on a peg. His chair is still at the front of the store. And his portrait sits atop one of the stacked dressers, overtop the shelf holding his favourite collectibles: the elf salt and pepper shakers, the hula dancers. In it Bernie SHARE is smiling -- and wearing his black cowboy hat.

Real estate developer flourished
Became one of Canada's wealthiest people
Credited with building much of Woodbridge
By Morgan CAMPBELL, Staff Reporter
Marco MUZZO came to Canada 50 years ago as a tradesman, armed only with a willingness to work.
That trait served him well, as he quietly built a real estate development empire in the Toronto area and became one of Canada's wealthiest people.
MUZZO, who died of cancer Monday at age 72, was buried yesterday at Holy Cross Cemetery in Thornhill.
MUZZO was born and raised in northern Italy, and moved to Canada in the mid 1950s, working as a plasterer and drywaller. By the early 1970s, he had entered the real estate business with partners Alfredo "Fred" DEGASPERIS and lawyer Rudy BRATTY.
Over the next three decades, the business bloomed, building industrial and commercial projects both in Toronto and its rapidly expanding suburbs. In recent years, MUZZO, who lived in Vaughan, headed the Pemberton Group, a condominium developer with projects in Toronto, Mississauga and Richmond Hill.
He also owned Piagga Ltd., a development company that paid $10 million for the Uptown Theatre on Yonge Street, with plans to raze the building and put up a 50-storey condominium tower. But on December 9, 2003, the theatre collapsed before it could be demolished, killing one person and injuring 14.
By 2004, MUZZO's extensive developments helped make him the 48th wealthiest person in Canada, worth $644 million, according to Canadian Business magazine.
That figure placed him above several more famous business people, including Magna International head Frank STRONACH.
That MUZZO could keep such a low profile while rising so high in the business world doesn't surprise the people who knew him.
"He was a very private person," said Vaughan Mayor Michael DI BIASE, who dealt with MUZZO on the developer's various projects in that York Region city. "Not many people knew what he was up to. In 20 years, if I saw him in council chambers twice it was too much."
What many people didn't know, DI BIASE said, is that MUZZO made large donations to Women's College Hospital, the Hospital for Sick Children and to all five Catholic churches in Vaughan.
"He was very tough in negotiations, very tough in business and very tough in getting what he wanted, but also very generous," DI BIASE said.
The mayor also credits MUZZO with helping Vaughan accommodate an exploding population. He estimates that there are 30,000 homes in Woodbridge and MUZZO's companies built 80 per cent of them.
"The style, the workmanship, nothing but the best," he said. "He built the whole west Woodbridge area. I don't think our community will ever forget him."
MUZZO leaves his wife of 49 years, Resy, children Isabella, Diana and Marc, and 11 grandchildren.
