Downtown shooting leaves 2 dead
Mayor calls Prime Minister's Office over growing problem of gun smuggling from United States
By Unnati GANDHI, Tuesday, August 9, 2005, Page A8
Homicide investigators combed through Toronto's latest crime scene yesterday, still finding shell casings hours after a downtown shooting left two people dead and sent one to hospital during another weekend of gun violence.
At the intersection of Maitland Place and Homewood Avenue, police forensic officers placed seven pylons on a patch of grass indicating new evidence by a blood-soaked white jersey with flies hovering over it.
One investigator found a shell casing in a gutter by the jersey and took it away for testing, while others analyzed a bullet hole in the side wall of a house next to the crime scene.
Just before 4 a.m. yesterday, gunfire erupted near the popular Phoenix nightclub on Sherbourne Street, where police found 19-year-old Ali Mohamud ALI, the city's 41st homicide victim, shot in the head and a 20-year-old man with non-life-threatening injuries.
Minutes later, a police cruiser was flagged down at nearby Jarvis and Bloor Streets. Inside a car was 23-year-old Loyan Mohammed AHMED suffering from multiple gunshots. He died later in hospital.
While certain neighbourhoods in Toronto have been the scene of more than 20 shootings in the past two weeks, resulting in six homicides, Mayor David MILLER maintained that the increased gun violence in the city is an anomaly.
"What is happening with these shootings is not Toronto," he told a news-media briefing yesterday afternoon, which Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair also attended.
"And Torontonians are not going to tolerate a city where guns are used to settle disputes between people."
While mayor and the chief said steps are being taken to prevent more gang-related violence, there have been no arrests in the three most recent slayings.
Efforts such as redeploying about 50 uniformed police officers to the northwest corner of the city since last Thursday has left Chief Blair looking to fill gaps in other neighbourhoods after yesterday's incidents.
"We also want to assure those in our most vulnerable communities that officers will be redeployed from across the city and from across the service, without depleting resources in all of our neighbourhoods because public safety in all of our neighbourhoods of Toronto is important," he said.
"We are finding ways within our organization to move officers in uniform into these neighbourhoods."
Chief Blair reported that police have seized 2,170 guns since the beginning of the year. Half of the guns used in crimes in the city had been smuggled from the United States, underscoring an issue Mr. MILLER brought up during a spate of violence last week that saw one person killed and five wounded by gunfire, including a four-year-old boy.
"There's no question that there are more guns being used in crimes and it's a serious issue," Mr. MILLER said yesterday, adding that he had spoken to the Prime Minister Paul Martin's office yesterday.
"The Prime Minister's Office assured me that they're already working to try to deal with the issue of gun smuggling."
On Sunday night, two men aged 27 and 17 were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after what police said may have been a drive-by-shooting in the Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East area.
On Friday night, 27-year-old Melbourne WHITTICK was shot and killed in the city's northeast while waiting for a bus on Victoria Park Avenue. He had become involved in an altercation with two men and died of a single shot to the abdomen.
"We have seen that there's a significant increase in the number of homicides that have taken place in the city as a result of firearm use and we're also seeing a great deal of that increase in that much of that violence is taking place in very public places," Chief Blair said.
He stressed that in these cases, the public's help is still what is going to catch the offenders, citing a fourfold increase in the number of calls to Crime Stoppers in the past week.
"We have received a record number of calls to Crime Stoppers and I think that reflects the concerns that the community and the citizens of Toronto have about the violence we have experienced."
Near the Maitland-Homewood crime scene yesterday, with the beeping of a police metal detector in the background, area resident Joanne BRIGDEN said violence was bound to have affected her neighbourhood sooner or later and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
"It was a matter of time before our area was hit," said Ms. BRIGDEN, whose house backs onto the Phoenix nightclub.
But the gun violence of the past few weeks is not scaring her, she added.
"Maybe there's a little increase in crime, but unless you assign a cop to every criminal," it's not going to stop any time soon, she said.

Man charged with murder in stabbing of taxi driver
By Unnati GANDHI, With a report from Jennifer LEWINGTON, Wednesday, September 7, 2005, Page A14
A 42-year-old Richmond Hill taxi driver was stabbed to death during an apparent robbery very early yesterday in Don Mills, an area residents call quiet and safe.
About 3: 40 a.m., a man living in the apartment unit next to where the taxicab was parked was awakened by two short blasts of a horn.
"There was a whole lot of commotion and I woke up and my thought was, 'People are moving out this early?' Because the door is open and there's people going in and out. I didn't realize they were police officers," said the 44-year-old salesman who resides at the Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue apartment building. He did not want to be identified.
From his bedroom window, he could see the taxi driver's head leaning in the driver's seat.
"I was groggy and sleepy. I looked out and saw a guy sitting with his head tilted toward the passenger side. I think, you know, he's taking a snooze waiting for his fare. I didn't think too much of it."
An hour later, about 4: 45 a.m., police took two young men into custody from inside the building before releasing them a few hours later.
Toronto Police Constable Kristine BACHARACH said the two men were no longer considered suspects.
Police then arrested an 18-year-old man and charged him with second-degree murder. Constable BACHARACH said officers aren't looking for more suspects.
She added that police will be going through the digital video footage captured from inside the cab for any other clues.
Morteza KHORASSANI was taken to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre where he was pronounced dead. He is the city's 51st homicide of the year.
The resident described the area as typically quiet. "The sixth floor is all elderly citizens," he said. "This used to be a safe neighbourhood. But people are already thinking of moving. It only takes one [incident] to convince a lot of people to move."
Another resident, who lives on the fourth floor, said he is thinking of moving out in the next month or so.
"I can't be bothered with it. I've learned from past experience not to mingle in other people's affairs," said the 53-year-old man who also did not want to be identified.
"There was a lot of noise all summer long. Not so much arguments, a little bit of swearing."
The man said he moved to the area five years ago because he had heard good things about it.
"It is fairly safe. It's just something that happened out of the blue. It's one of the safest areas that I've been around in Toronto."
A taxi driver who was in the area yesterday said he couldn't believe what had happened.
"We have to work 12 hours a day, seven days a week, and we are hardly paying our bills. No vacation, nothing. And then things like this happen. It's very sad," said Hamid, who would give only his first name.
"I work 84 hours a week. I should be a millionaire by now, but I can't even pay my bills."
As he left a meeting of the Toronto Police Services Board, Mayor David Miller said: "I am very concerned about the safety of our taxi drivers. It is a very dangerous job and it is very difficult in the middle of the night. The initiatives that have been taken, especially the cameras, are quite effective. Obviously, the circumstances of this one [incident] will be reviewed and there is anything more that can be learned we'll learn from it."
Shane SMITH of Toronto has been charged with second-degree murder and is scheduled to appear in court today.

Neighbours are relieved arrest made
Police find human remains 100 kilometres from where Alicia ROSS was last seen
By Unnati GANDHI and Timothy APPLEBY, With a report from Oliver MOORE, Thursday, September 22, 2005, Page A17
Sitting around the kitchen table, four Friends of Alicia ROSS's family tried to calm their nerves with a cup of tea yesterday afternoon. They couldn't bear to be outside where lines of police tape surrounded the neighbouring home of 31-year-old Daniel SYLVESTER, who surrendered to police and is charged with second-degree murder.
"Why didn't he do it earlier?" asked Benny ARONOWITZ, who lives on Green Lane. "The family had to suffer so much."
One of Mr. ARONOWITZ's Friends, Nina REZMOVITZ, said her son, David, and Ms. ROSS were good Friends.
"We're all parents, and this is the worst thing that could happen to any of us," she said. "David and his girlfriend scoured the ravine for hours. He was so distraught."
Ms. ROSS, 25, was last seen by her boyfriend, Sean HINE, just after midnight on August 17 at the home where she lived with her parents. Police described Mr. HINE as a person of interest, but yesterday her next-door neighbour turned himself in.
Hours later, police discovered human remains in two locations. They said they're confident the remains are those of Ms. ROSS.
Ontario's chief coroner confirmed the remains were found near the town of Manilla, about 50 kilometres northeast of Markham, and near the town of Coboconk, another 40 kilometres north.
Bronte Road, the tree-lined street where the victim lived, was quiet yesterday except for the forensic investigators who were scouring the house next door, a home listed as belonging to Grant SYLVESTER since 1997. The best-selling author died in 1999.
His widow, Olga Mary, and son Daniel continued to live in the family home. The couple's other son, Robert, had moved to Mississauga.
Although Daniel SYLVESTER lived in the neighbourhood, he seems to have left little impression. Shown his photo, numerous local residents said they had never seen him. Two women who lived within 100 metres of the SYLVESTER home said working suburbanites invariably go from their car to their house, barely saying hello to any but the closest neighbours.
"I don't know the name of the person across the street," said Angela TORTI, who moved to the area 22 years ago when it was a new subdivision.
None of the neighbours lingering around the cordoned-off area claimed to have seen any of the SYLVESTERs much.
"Everybody today kind of goes their own way. When you have small children, you go out walking with them and you get to know your neighbours," Ms. REZMOVITZ said. "But once your kids are grown, often you don't know who your neighbours are."
Calls to the SYLVESTER home and to Robert's home, office and cottage were not answered.
Next door to the SYLVESTER residence, two posters with Ms. ROSS's photo were still taped to the back windows of an sport utility vehicle. A couple arrived to visit Ms. ROSS's family during the afternoon, but declined to comment afterward.
Around dinnertime, a police officer prevented a teenage girl from entering blocked-off Bronte Road. She left a plastic-wrapped bouquet at the barricade and lit a small candle.
Although some residents said they were shocked to hear that a neighbour had been arrested, they said they were nevertheless relieved.
"It's devastating to hear. It shows some degree of a conscience, turning himself in, but it's like humanizing a monster. This can't redeem him," said Marc FINKELSTEIN, who was jogging with his wife, Simone. "This has paralyzed the neighbourhood. It used to be such an active neighbourhood. It's nice to know all this is finally over."
Ms. TORTI said she had been unable to stop worrying about her daughter, who is living at home while studying at the University of Toronto.
"I don't go to sleep until she's in," she said. "She's 23, but honest to God, I don't go to sleep."
About 100 kilometres northeast of the neighbourhood, human remains that York Regional Police say likely belong to Ms. ROSS, were discovered.
Helicopters whirled overhead, police and Ontario Provincial Police tracker dogs scoured the bush and thick bull rushes over a wide area north and south of Highway 7. But the focal point of the search appeared to be just south of the town of Manilla bisected by Highway 7.
Near the intersection of Simcoe Street and the Seventh Concession, police tape surrounded a rectangle of thick, damp brush less than three metres from the roadside. Under a broiling sun, police with weed whackers cut thick grass and carried it to a York Regional Police forensic truck.
An officer said his colleagues had been there since early morning.
The seven-hectare (28-acre) property has been for sale since the beginning of the month, with an asking price of $139,900 and nobody was more surprised to see the flurry of activity than listing agent Audrey GRIFFIOEN.
"This is terrible, I can't believe it," she said, explaining that the property -- partly farm land and partly environmentally protected -- had recently had a conditional purchase offer.
"He's got to be a real sicko, the guy who did this," she said. "Killing is bad enough, but hacking up and spreading body parts all over the countryside.... I'll bet you he just stopped in his car and chucked it."
Also dismayed was 23-year-old Melissa NEWBERRY, whose parents own an 11-hectare (43-acre) parcel of dense brush just north of Highway 7, where more searching was under way.
"It's kind of scary," she said, recounting a recent incident in which she was jogging along the road. She said "some creepo in a yellow car," whom she described as a blond-haired man about 30 years old, appeared to be watching her.
She was advised to report the encounter to one of the numerous police officers in the area.

MOORHOUSE, Eleanor -- Dispatch
By Unnati GANDHI, Saturday, October 1, 2005, Page M4
Somewhere between travelling through 57 countries, editing geological reports and meeting former U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor MOORHOUSE found the time to tell her children all about it.
One of the last tales she told her two children, Ellen and Owen, and her three grandchildren was that of the Banana King of New York. "Who's that, you ask? Well, some guy who took a percentage of all the bananas that arrived in New York," her daughter says, laughing. "I'm sure it was true."
"She probably never thought her stories were part of history, and I'm sure she took a lot of her stories with her."
Ms. MOORHOUSE was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1915, and catapulted herself to the forefront of everything she did. After getting a master's degree in geology from Cornell University, then becoming a civil servant during the Depression, Ms. MOORHOUSE travelled to Indonesia, Peru, Mongolia, France, the Philippines and the Arctic with her geologist husband, Wilson.
She also edited her husband's geology textbook.
"The editor who was handling the book said they had never got such clean copy before, and believe me, that was my mother's work," her daughter says. "She just did everything as perfectly as possible. She came from a family that was extremely intelligent to survive, you did things really well."
While the years after her husband's death in 1972 were difficult, Ms. MOORHOUSE kept working hard. She had become a real-estate agent in the 1960s and moved to Cabbagetown from Islington. She also continued her travels around the world, always coming back with stories, and the beginnings of decades-long Friendships with people she had met abroad.
"She had this richness and I'm sure it was partly from all that experience she had," her daughter says.
Ms. MOORHOUSE died on September 17 at the age of 90.

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".

Pair's death in car deepens distress at school
Students already split over sex-assault, harassment charges against 16 youths
By Unnati GANDHI and Joe FRIESEN, Friday, November 18, 2005, Page A13
A school stunned by the arrest of 16 young people on charges of sexual assault and harassment was rocked again yesterday by the death of one of its students.
Police found the bodies of 17-year-old Anna ZARNOCH, a Grade 12 student at James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic High School, and William RODRIGUEZ, 22, just after 6 a.m., yesterday in Mr. RODRIGUEZ's garage in the city's west end.
Police called the deaths accidental, saying the two probably died of carbon-monoxide inhalation after the old Cadillac they were sitting in had been running for hours overnight with the heater on and the garage door closed.
A police spokeswoman said Ms. ZARNOCH's death is not related to the criminal investigation at the school.
"She went to the school, but she was in no way connected to the sexual-harassment case," Constable Wendy DRUMMOND said, adding that Ms. ZARNOCH was not a witness in the case. "At this point, we're ruling it an accidental death from carbon-monoxide poisoning,"
The teen's death plunged a divided school further into disarray. Many senior students, some of them facing charges, are waiting for the court case to begin as well as mourning a classmate's death. For a school with slightly more than 600 students from Grades 9 through 12, the effect will likely be significant.
On Monday, 14 students were taken from their classes, arrested and handcuffed. They joined two others accused in a case that has sent shockwaves throughout the city. Police allege that a 16-year-old student was sexually assaulted and harassed both inside and outside the high school for more than a year. In one incident, police say, the girl was dragged from a school hallway and assaulted in a stairwell before being taken to a bathroom and assaulted again.
Staff convened an emergency meeting with students, parents and police Wednesday night to discuss the impact of the alleged assaults and the arrests of the 16 students. The event apparently did little to calm frayed nerves.
Some parents said they were considering removing their children from the school, while others said their children were afraid to return. A few students said they were ashamed to wear their school uniforms in public.
Many students are upset with the way the case was handled.
They say their classmates shouldn't have been arrested at school.
They have accused police and school officials of racism and of being heavy-handed in dealing with the accused, all of whom are black. Some have stayed away from school since they attended a bail hearing for their jailed Friends on Tuesday.
Ms. ZARNOCH lived in a high-rise building just south of the school near Keele and Finch Avenues.
Mr. RODRIGUEZ, who was her boyfriend, according to family members, lived in the Lansdowne house near St. Clair Avenue with his mother, sister and brother-in-law.
The brother-in-law, Al BARBOZA, said at the home yesterday that the pair had gone into the garage about 7: 30 p.m. on Wednesday. Mr. RODRIGUEZ's mother checked on them at about 1 a.m. and thought they were asleep.
"They stayed in the car the whole night," Mr. BARBOZA said. "I can't believe they were out there sleeping, it's so cold."
When the mother found them without any vital signs at about 6 a.m., she called police.
Mr. BARBOZA said he didn't know Ms. ZARNOCH very well, but knew that she had been reported missing by her family on Wednesday.
"Whenever he gets a girlfriend, I don't know what he does. He brings them over here all the time."
While Mr. BARBOZA said that the Cadillac parked in the garage rarely gets driven, upstairs tenant Anabela ALMEIDA said that she had seen Ms. ZARNOCH several times before and knew that Mr. RODRIGUEZ often went to listen to the radio in the car.
"The girl stays at the house sometimes," said Ms. ALMEIDA, who had been living on the second floor of the two-storey home for the past seven months.
The bodies have been taken to the coroner's office for autopsies scheduled for today.

Student collapses, dies at badminton tryout
By Unnati GANDHI, Friday, November 18, 2005, Page A14
A 17-year-old student died after trying out for the badminton team with about 35 others at her all-girls private school yesterday morning.
Jennifer LOU, a boarding student from Taiwan at Bishop Strachan School, collapsed and fell unconscious about 8 a.m. Staff began performing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation immediately. She was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 9: 30 a.m.
"Obviously, the school is in shock," spokeswoman Sharon GREGG said, adding that grief counsellors were called in to talk to the students.
Ms. LOU had been boarding at the Avenue Road and Spadina Avenue school for the past two years. Her parents were contacted yesterday in Taiwan.

Keith WINTERHALDER, Scientist (1935-2005)
Laurentian University teacher was a meticulous researcher but the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor at home, writes Sandra MARTIN. Importantly, he was the brains behind the greening of Sudbury, Ontario,
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, November 29, 2005, Page S9
Sudbury was not a pretty sight when botanist Keith WINTERHALDER arrived to teach at Laurentian University in 1965. Logging, fire, smelter emissions from the International Nickel Company (Inco) and soil erosion had wiped out almost all of the vegetation in the area. The barren soil, lacking the normal mulch from leaves falling in the autumn, suffered from severe frost in the winter and overheated in the summer.
Inco had tried sowing grass seeds. They would germinate, but the roots would wither as soon as they encountered the contaminated soil surface. After years of experimentation, Prof. WINTERHALDER learned, in what came to be called the Winterhalder Method, that an application of ground limestone could detoxify soil -- not just in Sudbury but in many areas of the world where mining and other industrial applications have polluted the environment. He also discovered that if a sparse grass cover could be established on a rocky hillside that had been treated with limestone and fertilizer, seeds from the few existing poplars, willows and birches in the surrounding area would blow in, germinate and grow.
"He suggested a lot of different grasses and different soils and different amounts of lime and fertilizer we could use," said Tom PETERS, former head of the Agricultural Dept. at Inco. It was as though the land degraded by the smelter formed a huge open air laboratory. "We carried on talking as we did different things and he became quite involved after I retired [in 1984] in planting trees on the tailings," said Mr. PETERS.
Prof. WINTERHALDER served as chair of Sudbury's Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee for more than 20 years, initially preparing an inventory and then producing a case study to show that the toxic conditions could be reversed. Beginning in 1978, the Sudbury region established ground cover on more than 3,000 hectares of barren land and cleaned up 1,000 hectares of dead standing debris. They also planted more than a million trees.
W.E. LAUTENBACK, now director of planning services for the city of greater Sudbury, was the staff person on Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee. When the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro lauded the region for its environmental stewardship in 1992, Mr. LAUTENBACK compared the honour to winning an Olympic gold medal. Prof. WINTERHALDER was extremely important in the greening of Sudbury, Mr. LAUTENBACK said. "He was the guy who pointed the way [with his research] and he was also very committed to public service. It gave his knowledge back for the public good."
Prof. WINTERHALDER was also generous and patient with his students. "I learned more from him than any other professor," said biologist Peter NOSKO, who did a masters degree at Laurentian.
Although he was meticulous with his field notes and his research papers, he was the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor in his personal life. He also seemed to have a lucky angel sitting on his shoulder. "If he were late for a plane it would be delayed," said Karen GANDIER, a former math teacher and his partner for more than 25 years.
On an Asian field trip he was perched 30 metres above the ground in a Malaysian rain forest when he dropped his glasses off the platform into the tree canopy. The next morning he went down to the ground and found them. Another time, he couldn't shift his ancient car into forward gear, so he drove it backwards all the way home from the university. The only tricky part, according to Ms. GANDIER, was figuring out which side of the street to drive on after he turned a corner at the street lights.
A linguist who was proficient in a number of languages including Ojibwa and Russian, he was also an accomplished musician who sang choral music in a Sudbury choir and loved to play the bagpipes. Prof. NOSKO remembers working very late in a lab when he was a student and feeling sorry for himself until he heard the skirl of the bagpipes coming from the herbarium down the hall and realized that he wasn't alone. "It was comforting to know that Keith was in there working, too."
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Burrington, Shropshire, near the border between Wales and England, the eldest in a family of four children. His father, Frederick Albert WINTERHALDER, was a sports fisherman and a policeman. Originally watchmakers from the Black Forest area near Switzerland, the WINTERHALDERs had emigrated to London four generations earlier. His mother, Ursula May (WILLIAMS,) was a descendant of a long line of Welsh singers and a housewife who, when Prof. WINTERHALDER was a child, kept a cow and chickens and churned her own butter.
He was six years older than Neil, his nearest sibling; 12 years older than his sister, Sandra, and 14 years older than his brother Robin, and he "grew up in beautiful countryside on a smallholding miles from the nearest village," with only a sheepdog as a companion, according to his sister.
After his family moved to Rhayader in mid-Wales, he attended local schools before going on to Llandrindod Wells grammar school. He was "a loved father figure" to his youngest siblings, because their father, who had joined the air ministry police during the war, "worked away" for most of their early lives.
"Rob and I were taken for frequent long walks in the old-fashioned pram through the beautiful Welsh countryside and Keith, even then, seemed to be able to tell us all about nature." He was head boy at his grammar school. "He was always ahead of his peer group at school and was really quite intellectual as a boy -- spending time in the local library reading when his classmates were doing the more usual boyish activities."
After Llandrindod Wells, he went to the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, graduating with first-class honours in botany in 1956 and winning a Commonwealth Scholarship to do graduate work at the University of New England in New South Wales, Australia.
For somebody so intellectually talented and passionate about his subject, Prof. WINTERHALDER lacked a conventional curriculum vitae. He studied and taught botany as a sessional lecturer at University of New England for six years (until 1962) before taking up a three-year posting as a research fellow in botany at the University of Liverpool back in England. In 1963, he accepted a job as a lecturer in botany at the newly incorporated Laurentian University and immediately on arriving he became curator of the university's newly formed herbarium.
He was promoted to assistant professor in 1969 and associate professor in 1980. After his retirement in 1999, he continued working at the University Herbarium as curator emeritus and founded his own company, Wintergreen Ecological Services.
A procrastinator who cared little for credentials, he only belatedly acquired a masters degree in science from University of New England in 1970 and he never completed the dissertation for his Ph. D. degree. The frequently told story is that all his data burned up in a fire in a lab while he was out in the bush doing field research.
Zoologist Vic CLULOW met him in 1968, three years after he arrived at Laurentian. "He could have got a Ph. D at any time, but he never did," said Prof. CLULOW, relating a story about Prof. WINTERHALDER being held in such high esteem by his academic colleagues that he was asked on at least one occasion to serve as an external examiner for a Ph. D thesis even though he didn't technically have the qualification himself. "He also helped a lot of undergraduates and postgraduate students with money, time and space without ever expecting anything back," said Prof. CLULOW.
"He was never boring, but often exasperating," said Ms. GANDIER. They met after Prof. WINTERHALDER rented a house in the early 1970s from a colleague who was away on sabbatical and found a note saying: "For plumbing or dogs, see Karen." They had mutual interests in skiing, dogs, music and the outdoors, but they always maintained separate residences.
"Neither of us could stand living with the other full time. Both of us were real loners," said Ms. GANDIER. Besides, she was a dog person and he was a cat lover. Prof. WINTERHALDER always kept a window open in his basement and stray cats and the occasional raccoon would come in to eat the food he left for them.
About six years ago he was diagnosed with scleroderma, a chronic connective-tissue disorder that is generally classified as an autoimmune rheumatic disease. It affected his hands and feet first, making the joints painful and inflexible, and then progressed to his lungs and compromised his breathing. He never complained, according to Ms. GANDIER. He continued to go on field trips and conferences, attending one this year in a wheel chair.
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Shropshire, England, on April 14, 1935. He died in Sudbury, Ontario of complications from scleroderma on October 29. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Karen GANDIER, and by three siblings.

BROWN, Dorothy May (née GANDY)
Died peacefully at home on Saturday, November 26, 2005 in her 103rd year. Loving wife of the late Richard John BROWN, beloved mother of Jackie, Valerie, Barbara and Gillian. She will be sadly missed by grandchildren Andrew (Teresa), Peter (Donna), Jennifer (Steve), Adam, Bill, Ross (Feli), Wendy, Geoff (Yuka) and Sara (Jason) and 14 great-grandchildren Chris, Amanda, Trevor, Patrick, Grace, Jordan, Roni, Mary Grace, Romeo, Paul, Michael, Noa, Nellie and Rachel. Born in England, on the Longleat Estate of the Marquis of Bath, Dorothy, her husband and four daughters lived in Kent. During the war she was active in the Woman's British Legion and the Woman's Institute, helping women to develop new resources to survive the war without their husbands. After the war, she was one of three English women chosen to visit Holland to see how the Woman's Institute had contributed there. In 1949, she and R.J. and their two younger daughters immigrated to Canada where they worked for Lady Eaton and lived at Eaton Hall Farm. R.J. worked on the estate and Dorothy managed the large staff at the farm hands' boarding house. After three years they moved to Port Credit where she lived the rest of her life with the exception of six years when she owned and operated a motel in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Her volunteer service included membership in the league of Women Voters and the Presidency of the Lakeshore Chapter of the Professional Woman's Club. Dorothy will be remembered for her soft and gentle nature, her wide and diverse circle of Friends and the charm and laughter she brought to every room she entered. She asks that we be not afraid for her, for she has embarked on "life's last great adventure!" Many thanks to the Mississauga Community Care Access Centre and Red Cross, Spectrum Nursing and the Hospice of Peel for the gentle loving caregivers who enabled Dorothy to stay at home for the last years of her life and to the Friends and neighbours who surrounded her with love. Thank you also to Dr. Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Karen, and the clergy of Trinity Port Credit - Steven, David and Michelle - for their compassionate support. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will take place at Trinity Anglican Church, 26 Stavebank Rd. N., Port Credit on Friday, December 16, at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hospice of Peel, or Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit, would be appreciated.

Donald Roy MacKENZIE
By Rosemary GANLEY, Tuesday, October 18, 2005, Page A26
Husband, grandfather, teacher, Arctic guide, farmer, neighbour. Born July 9, 1932, in Ripley, Ontario Died May 5 in Peterborough, Ontario, of cancer, aged 72.
Don MacKENZIE was an ordinary man who led an extraordinary life. He died in Peterborough on May 5, after living courageously with cancer for several years.
Don's knowledge and love of the natural world led to his becoming an inspirational teacher of geography, a respected leader of tours to the High Arctic, and a friendly farmer with a "cut-your-own" Christmas tree farm and a steam-filled sugar shack.
Born in 1932 in Ripley, in southwestern Ontario, Don came from a musical family with Scottish roots. His father Roy was a pipe major and his mother Violet played piano. Each of the four MacKenzie brothers played an instrument in the MacKenzie Family Band and Don's was the snare drum.
At 18, Don began teaching in a one-room school in the hamlet of Lothian, and later, a three-room school in Chesley. During those early years, teaching also included maintaining a wood stove. "I kept a pot of creamed corn on the stove for lunches," Don once said.
During the summers, while earning his B.A., he met his perfect match: Joyce HUXTABLE of Oshawa, who was preparing to teach physical education. Don and Joyce married in 1957 and raised three children together.
Not long after they were married, they invested in a cottage on Lake Weslemkoon, near Bancroft. Summers at the lake were an important part of Don's life. He was a steward of the lake and an active member of the Cottagers' Association.
At Peterborough Collegiate and Vocational School, Don taught geography for 23 years. Through his considerable slide collection, he brought the landscape into the classroom for his students. Don spent winter weekends volunteering with the Canadian Ski Patrol System at the local ski hills and Nordic trails. He dedicated 40 years to the organization, as a patroller, instructor, examiner and member of the national executive. In 1988, Don was honoured to patrol the Nordic events at the Calgary Olympics.
The north drew Don in a profound way. In 1978, he spent a sabbatical year in England at Cambridge University's Scott Polar Research Institute. The next year he was invited to lead a tour to the Canadian High Arctic. This would be the first of 23 trips over the next 14 years. Don took his tourists to remote destinations Grise Fjord, Pond Inlet, Ellesmere Island, Resolute Bay, and Beechy Island. He was a knowledgeable, organized, and patient tour leader.
Don spent much of his later life tending the hobby farm where he and Joyce lived for the past 20 years. His daughter Louise noted that "he seemed spiritually connected to the land and all that lives on it. He would buy special trees to encourage birds." Each year, the MacKenzies welcomed upward of 500 families who made a seasonal trip to the farm to cut their Christmas tree, enjoying hayrides and hot chocolate. Don donated part of the proceeds to Jamaican Self Help, an international development group he supported in Peterborough. When he was gravely ill, many long-time MacKenzie Friends came to the farm to prepare Don's trees for future years.
Don leaves his beloved wife Joyce, his children Ian, Louise and Janice, and his seven grandchildren, ages 23 to one year.
The night he died, after just three days in palliative care in Peterborough, a shooting star greeted Joyce and her sister Donna as they drove back to the farm at midnight.
Shooting star he was, but also a warm, grounded teacher, and a gifted friend.
Rosemary is Don's friend.
