Friends mourn slain teenager
By Scott ROBERTS and Ashley JOANNOU, Staff Reporters
Six roses, a red bandana and a copy of the New Testament lay on a sidewalk behind an Etobicoke apartment complex last night a memorial for 17-year-old Matthew George WILMOT.
A gym beside the apartment where the teen played basketball was used as a canvas for one last message from WILMOT's Friends: "R.I.P. DIzzy."
WILMOT, known to his Friends as DIzzy, was gunned down Wednesday afternoon outside the entrance of an apartment on Islington Ave. just south of Finch Ave. W., at about 2 p.m.
His death was one of three shootings this week; Toronto police have made an arrest in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy and are still searching for suspects in the other attacks.
WILMOT died after being taken to Sunnybrook hospital; an autopsy yesterday revealed the cause to be gunshot wounds to the chest.
The afternoon shooting took place just steps away from a playground where children looked on.
witnesses: reported seeing a black sport utility vehicle, possibly a Lincoln Navigator or a Ford Explorer, speeding away after the shooting. No arrests have been made.
Friends of WILMOT described him as quiet and athletic. They were shocked he would be the target of an attack that police described as brazen.
"He was just a good guy," said Shawn CETTINO, a close friend. "He was a smart kid, too. He would never disrespect anyone."
WILMOT was known to police but officers wouldn't elaborate.
Meanwhhile, Bernard BOACHIE, 18, of Toronto faces eight charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault, in the shooting of a 12-year-old boy on Monday.
Police believe BOACHIE knew the boy.
The victim was taken to the Hospital for Sick Children by cab after being shot in the shoulder in an apartment building on Tobermory Dr., near Jane and Finch Aves.
Two days later, WILMOT became the city's 31st homicide victim of the year.
Police are also appealing for witnesses: to a second shooting Wednesday, just west of Spadina Ave. between Dundas and Queen Sts.
Kortez JACKSON, a father of four, was shot three times when he opened the door to a townhouse in Atkinson Co-op at about 11 a.m. JACKSON, 32, is in critical condition in hospital.
In another case, police arrested a man in Ottawa yesterday, alleging he had broken the conditions of his release from jail.
Bhupinder Singh SAHOTA, 45, was on conditional release from the Toronto East Detention Centre after being charged with possession of stolen credit cards. He is being brought to Toronto by Ottawa police and will face a variety of charges.

CAMPBELL, Ruth Bodwell (née BLACHFORD)
It is with great sadness that the family announces that Ruth passed away peacefully at St. Joseph's Hospital, Hamilton on Tuesday January 18th, 2005, at the age of 87. Beloved wife for 61 years of the late Andrew Claude (2002): much loved Mum of Andrew (Debbie), Joanne (John), Mary Lou and Gail. Loving grannie of Rob, Michael and James CAMPBELL, Michael, Jeff, Paul, Kate and Peter LAMBERT, Kerry, Kim and Kelly JESTY, Scott, Kristie and Julie BOADWIN whom she adored. Mary Elbe and Bill ROBINSON will also miss her greatly. Dear sister of the late Kenneth (Gina) BLACHFORD and the late Edward (Bernice) BLACHFORD. For many years Ruth and Claude were very active in volunteering their time and talents to several local charitable organizations. Ruth maintained the membership for the Hamilton and District Ostomy Association, and was a Member of the former Mountain Group. During her many years at the Church of Saint Thomas, Ruth was very active as a choir member, the boys choir mother and long time member of their bowling league. As a talented organist and pianist, Ruth occasionally filled in as the relief organist at Saint Thomas. She enjoyed many hours socializing with the ladies from the Circle 20 Bridge Club, who will also miss her. We have all benefited from her expert handiwork - smocking, needlepoint, cross stiching, crocheting and knitting. She was also a cracker-jack crossword solver. A woman of character and the woman was a character! Friends may call at the Marlatt Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 615 Main Street East (east of Sanford) on Thursday 7-9 p.m. and Friday from 1: 30 p.m. until time of service at 3:30 p.m in the Marlatt Memorial Chapel. Cremation to follow. Final resting place St. James Cemetery in Toronto. Flowers gratefully declined. If desired, the family would appreciate memorial donations to be made to the Hamilton and District Ostomy Association or The Church of the Ascension. Heaven is surely a brighter place today. A warm and gentle soul has passed and we will miss you. While we mourn her loss, we are comforted by the knowledge that she has found her place in peace. Mum, you left us a legacy of love and decency which will guide us through our lives. If the value of life can be measured in lives touched and memories left behind, you were wealthy beyond compare. Always a wonderful lady, we will live by your example and hold you in our hearts.
We love you and will miss you Mummy-O!

MOFFATT- SCHAFFNER, Beverly Jean (CROCKER)
It is with great sadness that the family of Beverly Jean MOFFATT- SCHAFFNER (CROCKER) announces her death on February 15, 2005, in her 63rd year. Bev faced her short but difficult battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, the way she faced life - head on, with courage, determination and pride - never thinking about herself, but worrying about those around her. Bev always introduced herself as "an extreme introvert", yet she managed to touch the hearts of everyone she met. Bev leaves behind her life-partner of 11 1/2 years, Sami, with whom she loved to explore the back roads of Ontario, and spend weekends cross stitching and watching movies; her daughter, Christine, her husband Christopher BOAL, and their children Nicholas, Ashley-Rose, and Anthony, who were Grandma's pride and joy; and her daughter Susan, and her husband Marc DE LEON and "The Munchkin," due August 23rd. Also left to mourn Bev are her mother-in-law Dorothy MOFFATT; her chosen sister and brother-in-law Sue and Bob NITTOLY, and her best friend Lisa FAKHOURIE, both who cared so lovingly for Bev; her feline babies Sweetums, Treya, Molly, Merlin, Billy and LilSpooks; her spiritual family at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church; and her former co-workers, family and Friends. She is predeceased by her parents, Jean and Alfred and her step-father Jack. The family would like to thank Drs. Akbar KHAN, Arnold TEPPERMAN, Michael CHAN and Dina ZAYID, for the wonderful and supportive care they gave Bev throughout her illness; her special nurse, Shawn, who visited daily and gently tended to her needs; the Palliative Care team from Scarborough Centenary Hospital; Fr. Richard NEWLAND whose visits were filled with spirituality and humour; and "The Prayer Team", who encompassed most the world and supported all of us through their prayers, cards, phone calls and emails. A celebration of Bev's life will be held at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church (56 Lawson Road, Scarborough), on Saturday, February 19, 2005. Visitation and reception will begin at 7: 30 p.m., followed with the Funeral Service at 9: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to PALIN "The Weekend to End Breast Cancer"; or, 4 women 4 ever team, in Bev's name would be appreciated.

James COWAN, Army Officer 1928-2005
As a raw lieutenant, he took command in the middle of a battle in the Korean War and was recommended for the Military Cross
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Jim COWAN achieved a rare distinction for an inexperienced 22-year-old army officer when he took command of his infantry company in the middle of a battle. On May 30, 1951, he was a lieutenant with the Second Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, commanding a platoon of 35 infantrymen during their first major action in the Korean War when his company commander was wounded.
Mr. COWAN's seniority got him the job, said John WOODS of Ottawa, one of two other platoon commanders during the battle of Kakhul-Bong almost 54 years ago. "John STRICKLAND of 9 Platoon had lost three-quarters of his platoon in the first five minutes of the attack. [My platoon] came up and took over his position, so Jimmy and I fought side by side up the hill."
Suddenly, word came that their commander, Major Harry BOATES, had been hit by a Chinese mortar bomb. Mr. COWAN sprinted breathlessly over to Mr. WOODS. " What date was your commission?" he asked.
Even in the middle of a battle, it was important for officers to observe certain professional niceties. "Feb. 16, 1948," Mr. WOODS replied.
"That gave him three months seniority over me, [which] entitled him to take over the company."
They discussed what to do next. "We thought about making a full bayonet charge with both platoons, but we decided... it would have been suicidal."
The Second Battalion, which had formed at Camp Petawawa, Ontario, less than a month after North Korea invaded South Korea on July 25, 1950, had trained at Fort Lewis, Washington., before shipping out on May 4, 1951. Placed under the command of the 25th U.S. Division, it had been advancing north of Seoul when it was ordered to capture the heavily fortified 500-metre summit of Kakhul-Bong and the village of Chail-li beyond it.
D Company, including Mr. COWAN and his men of 10 Platoon, had been told to take the main objective -- the twin peaks of Kakhul-Bong. At 6: 30 a.m., Major BOATES sent his three platoons leapfrogging forward until they were pinned down by Chinese machine-gun fire. A driving rainstorm that started at 7 a.m. didn't help matters. Not long after, Major BOATES was wounded and Mr. COWAN took over the attack.
"Jimmy was very cool and very professional," said Mr. WOODS, who remained a lifelong friend. "The way he accepted the responsibility of taking command was very impressive."
A handful of men advanced to within six metres of the summit of Kakhul-Bong, only to be stopped by heavy fire. "Victory was so near -- yet so far. Below, the Chinese could be seen concentrating in substantial numbers for a counterattack," wrote G.R. Stevens in The Royal Canadian Regiment, Volume Two, 1933-66.
"Determined to deny them access to the Chorwon Plains -- to which Kakhul was virtually the key -- the enemy opened up with mortar and artillery fire. In pelting rain and with no high ground for observation, it was obvious he was firing from guns which had been previously dug in and ranged," wrote correspondent Bill BOSS of The Canadian Press. For three hours, both Mr. COWAN and Mr. WOODS deployed their platoons "in a bombardment not seen by this correspondent since... the Second World War."
Mr. COWAN radioed battalion headquarters that his right flank was entirely exposed, reported that 3,000 Chinese soldiers in the valley below were preparing a counterattack and said he had only 70 men left. Brigadier-General John ROCKINGHAM, commander of 25 Canadian Infantry Brigade Group, ordered him to disengage.
Second Battalion had suffered six dead and 25 wounded. Both Mr. COWAN and Mr. WOODS were recommended for the Military Cross. Years later, Mr. COWAN, who had been wounded that day, said that "becoming a company commander while under fire is an experience no young man ever forgets."
The son of a Toronto police officer, Mr. COWAN joined the cadet corps of the 48th Highlanders of Canada at 13. He was commissioned into the regiment seven years later before volunteering for the regular army in 1950. After the Korean War, he followed the conventional career path of thousands of officers, including battalion and staff postings in Canada and Europe.
In 1953, he enjoyed an unusual job for an army officer when he cruised the North Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Pacific as ground-liaison officer aboard the aircraft carrier H.M.C.S. Magnificent. While in Halifax aboard Magnificent, he met a navy nurse named Betty-June BALLANTYN and they became sweethearts. Then, after spending a number of years in Vietnam and Laos as part of the International Truce Commission, Mr. COWAN returned home in 1957 and they married.
The next 13 years saw Mr. COWAN and his family assigned to postings around the world, including stops in India, Germany and the United States. He commanded his original unit, the Second Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, in Soest, West Germany, from 1968 to 1970. He retired from the Canadian Forces in 1982 as a brigadier-general. He later spent seven years as Chief Executive Officer and priory secretary of Saint John Ambulance.
Brigadier-General James Albert COWAN was born on September 30, 1928, in Toronto. He died of lung cancer on January 1, 2005, in North Bay, Ontario He was 76. He is survived by his wife, Betty-June, sons Ian and Scott and brother Bill.
He was predeceased by his brother Dave and his sister Jean.
He will be interred with full military honours in Ottawa's National Military Cemetery in May.
