BELGUE, (Mary Elizabeth (Une 12, 1966-April 28, 2006)
After an unbelievably courageous battle with cancer, Mary left us in peace and serenity with her mother and her partner at her side. Loved by so many, she is survived by her mother Catherine and stepfather Ian, her father Terence and stepmother Nancy, her sisters Lia and Sarah, her brother Michael, her step and half brothers Ian, John and Daniel, and her partner Carl, along with scores of Friends and family in Canada, the United States and Korea. Mary faced her illness with dignity and incredible strength, after a life characterized by grace, independence and style. An accomplished fashion designer, artist and chef, anything Mary touched would be influenced by her flair and particular point of view. Always up for a spirited discussion on anything from the English premiership to Eastern philosophy, she was a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a mentor, a friend, an inspiration. Finally free, you are with us always in our hearts, our spirits and our minds Mary. We love you. We would like to give a special thanks to Ashanti, Mieke and Judith, who enabled Mary to face the final stage of her life with great dignity and comfort. We are indebted to you forever. In lieu of flowers, please make any donations to the Victoria Hospice Society, www.victoriahospice.org or the David Suzuki Foundation, www.davidsuzuki.org.

Game cited in racing death
By Tara BRAUTIGAM, Canadian Press, Thurs., January 26, 2006
Toronto -- The fantasy world of video game street racing may have influenced two teenage boys accused of piloting real-life luxury cars in a high-speed contest that claimed the life of a taxi driver, police said yesterday.
A copy of Need for Speed, a game that allows players to select high-end cars and race them through crowded urban areas, was found on the front seat of one of the suspect's cars following the late-night crash.
"Here we have, in real life, two guys driving high-end cars at a high rate of speed in an urban area," said Toronto police Det. Paul LOBSINGER.
"I don't think it's a giant leap for people to say, 'Wow, how does this go together?' "
The 18-year-old Friends were racing a pair of Mercedes Benzes through one of the city's wealthiest neighbourhoods Tuesday night, reaching speeds of 140 kilometres an hour in a 50-kilometre zone, police allege.
The taxi was hit while making a left turn onto the road, killing 46-year-old driver Tahir KHAN.
The married father of two young children immigrated to Canada six years ago from Pakistan, said Jim BELL, general manager of Diamond Taxicab Association.
"He was working to… reunite his family in Canada, and lived the Canadian dream," Bell said. "Tahir's dream for him and his family has been ended."
The force of the crash left the taxi wrapped around a utility pole, plumes of steam still rolling off the wreckage as investigators sifted through the twisted metal.
Despite finding an auto-racing game at the scene of the crime, LOBSINGER stressed the game wasn't solely to blame.
"Look, in the proper perspective… if everyone imitated a video game such as that, we'd have to ban cars," he said.
The driver of the Mercedes involved in the crash suffered a few scratches. The other driver fled the scene, police said.
Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao ROSS are charged with criminal negligence causing death. ROSS also faces a charge of failing to stop after an accident causing death.
RYAZANOV and ROSS appeared in court yesterday with their bail hearings rescheduled to tomorrow and Monday, respectively.
The incident is the latest in what some say is a growing problem of street racing all across Canada.
The increase in street racing incidents led the former Liberal government to introduce legislation requiring judges to revoke the driver's licence of anyone convicted of street racing.
The bill failed to pass into law before the government fell in November.

Teen dies after hit-run crash
By John HERBERT, Free Press Crime Reporter, Wed., February 15, A London teenager has died after being struck by a car in an early-morning hit-and-run crash.
Matthew BELL, 19, was crossing Adelaide Street north of Grenfell Drive yesterday at about 1 a.m. when he was hit.
BELL was taken to hospital, but died last night from injuries suffered in the crash.
Sgt. Tom O'BRIEN of the London police traffic management unit said the motorist involved failed to remain at the scene but contacted police a short time later.
The driver, who has been identified and interviewed by police, has not been charged, police said.
Police are investigating the circumstances of the fatal crash.
O'BRIEN said collisions involving pedestrians are becoming so common, they happen almost every day in the city.
BELL was the 28th victim this year, and the second pedestrian to die from injuries suffered in a car-pedestrian collision.
Last year, 225 pedestrians -- more than one every other day -- were hit on London streets.
Two pedestrians died after being hit by cars in 2005 and 14 people died in car crashes in London.
"It's not a problem London faces. It's occurring everywhere," O'BRIEN said. "Toronto will have 50 pedestrians struck and killed in a year. It's about people sharing the use of our transportation system walking on roads or driving cars.
"Motorists have to be concerned about pedestrians. Cyclists have to worry about pedestrians. Pedestrians have to worry about cyclists. None of the highway users can do so in a vacuum.
"Any time a pedestrian ventures onto the road it's not the safest place to be. We have to look out for each other."
O'BRIEN said some pedestrian-car collisions are also difficult to avoid.
"We've learned all our lives children dart out -- that's why a lot of children are hit," he said. "We know the elderly may not take as much care stepping off the curb and that could be related to hearing and eyesight."
A second hit-and-run crash during rush hour yesterday -- this one involving two vehicles -- sent a 25-year-old woman to hospital
A van driving west on Dundas Street struck a vehicle heading south on Highbury Avenue just before 5 p.m., police said.
The van, which left the scene, was chased by witnesses: who called Officers stopped the van a short time later on Dundas Street and a 47-year-old man was arrested for failing to remain at the scene of an accident and impaired driving.
The 25-year-old woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Night out with Friends has a tragic ending
By John HERBERT, Free Press Crime Reporter, Thurs., February Matt BELL was a regular kid with a part-time job, potential as a graphic artist, a good sense of humour and lots of good Friends.
The 19-year-old Fanshawe College student was coming home after a night out with those Friends when he was struck and killed by a car early Tuesday on Adelaide Street near his Hastings Drive home.
Police said the driver left the scene, but contacted police a short time later. No charges had been laid yesterday.
"He was a typical 19-year-old," said his mother, Irene. "He had a girlfriend. He loved to go out. He loved people and everybody loved Matt. He's going to be missed by so many people."
"He was better than most teenagers," said his grandmother, Julie DEVRIES. "He was just a lovable kid who would hug his grandmother. He was so proud of what he was doing at school. He was so good at it."
BELL was was trying to cross Adelaide at about 1 a.m. -- he had just hopped out of a taxi after clubbing with Friends downtown when he was hit.
A graduate of Clarke Road secondary school, BELL was in his second year at Fanshawe College. He also worked at Staples Business Depot on Richmond Street.
Irene BELL said her son's loss comes at a difficult time for the family. Her husband, Thomas, died seven months ago.
Matt is survived by sister Nicole, 20, and brother Greg, 15.
"I'm in a fog," Irene BELL said. "It comes in waves. It's busy now with a lot of people around, but later it's going to be extremely tough.
"It's still unbelievable. It's not real. He's not gone long enough to know he's gone. It hasn't sunk it.
"How do you go on?"
Irene BELL said her son was "easy to love," which explains why he had so many Friends.
One was his girlfriend, Jamie DURSTON.
"He had lots and lots of Friends," she said. "He loved life."
A funeral service will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. at Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel, 1997 Dundas St. E. Visitation is tomorrow from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.

Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, Nurse And Union Organizer (1931-2006)
In 1957, the year she completed training, Ontario nurses were overworked, underpaid, undervalued and expected to stand when a doctor entered the room. She decided to do something about it
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Asked about working conditions for nurses in Ontario in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Anita ABDULLAH chuckles in that exasperated way. "We were indentured servants," sighs the London, Ontario, nurse, who began working in 1970. "Little more than glorified slaves." In 1973, newly minted registered nurses earned $7,736 a year. No health benefits. No occupational safety provisions. No notice or severance required for layoffs. Overtime of 30 minutes or less a day was unpaid -- and it added up.
And is it true that a nurse who happened to be sitting was obliged to stand when a doctor entered the room? Mrs. ABDULLAH doesn't pause. "You're darn right. If you didn't, you were disciplined."
Nurses were overworked, underpaid, and undervalued. So, Mrs. ABDULLAH's friend and colleague, Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, set out to change that -- but not before she duly noted that the plight of nurses was not completely the fault of management.
"I was concerned about the apathy of nurses at the time with respect to working conditions," Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY observed a few years ago. "The nurses complained constantly over coffee and lunch but didn't feel comfortable complaining to a higher authority. They worried about losing their jobs. They didn't have the nerve to take action. The question for me was, what could be done to help the situation."
Fortunately for nurses in Ontario, Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY had nerve to spare. On October 13, 1973, in a landmark meeting in Toronto, more than 300 representatives of 85 independent nurses' organizations from across the province joined forces to form the Ontario Nurses' Association, with Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY installed as founding president.
Just nine months later, after a brief but noisy labour dispute, the Ontario Nurses' Association reached an 18-month agreement with Queen's Park covering 10,000 registered nurses in 41 hospitals, boosting starting salaries to $10,200 annually and maximum salaries by a healthy 50 per cent.
Eventually, the union would bring together 104 separate nurses' associations.
It was while working as a nurse herself that Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY realized many of her colleagues were unhappy with their hours, shift work, low pay and lack of prestige. "When attempts to work with management to set standards failed, she and others decided that collective bargaining was the answer," related Ontario Nurses' Association chief executive officer Lesley BELL. " Thousands of registered nurses have benefited from her efforts since."
Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY served two, one-year terms as president of the Ontario Nurses' Association, today a powerful union representing more than 51,000 registered nurses and allied health professionals in hospitals, community health, long-term care, Canadian Blood Services, clinics and industry. For 16 years, she worked at several staff positions at the association, retiring in 1991 as an honorary member.
For a time, she was also director and acting chair of the Ontario Health Coalition.
Over the past 30 years, the Ontario Nurses' Association has spearheaded great strides for nurses in pay, layoff provisions, overtime, parental leave and recognition of previous experience, to name a few areas.
Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY would note with satisfaction the changes brought about over the years, not only in the strength and power of the nursing collective, but in how nurses regard themselves. "Today, nurses don't hesitate to go up to the mike and speak their peace," she said recently. "Nurses are now much better educated and know how to achieve a particular goal, whether it concerns working conditions or any other issue."
The eldest of six children born to farmers in the Caledon region outside Toronto during the Depression, she was among 14 psychiatric nursing graduates of the Ontario Hospital in Whitby in 1951, finishing her studies on time despite a broken hip suffered in a car accident. Six years later, she received her certification in public health from the University of Toronto.
It was while nursing in the community-health sector that she joined a committee formed to hear complaints about working conditions. In the early 1960s, Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY went to work for the Etobicoke Health Department at a time when nurses in Peel and Halton counties were beginning to form their own associations and gain certification for the purpose of collective bargaining, which proved useful when they did not get anticipated raises.
Given the low wages and status the job was saddled with in her day, why did people -- women, back then -- enter the profession at all?
"The prestige came from the satisfaction we got from making our patients feel better," offers Mrs. ABDULLAH. " Adjusting a pillow, washing somebody's face, cleaning their teeth, rubbing their back, sitting and holding their hand, listening to them cry in pain and trying to soothe them -- that's what made it all worthwhile."
So didn't Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and other nurses who entered the labour end of things, locking horns with adversaries, miss that compassion?
"While you missed that gratification of being at a bedside, how you rationalized [that] was you hoped that through your skills and your activism, you were able to make a bigger contribution to your profession," said Mrs. ABDULLAH, who worked alongside Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY at the Ontario Nurses' Association for a decade.
Mrs. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY's accomplishments were acknowledged in Ontario's legislature earlier this month. George Smitherman, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, no stranger to the fortunes of nurses in the province, said the profession today "can proudly claim to be respected, strong and united. [Nurses] are, as they have always been, the heart and soul of health care. Today, they are recognized as such, which is something that they have not always been. Thousands of nurses have benefited from the efforts made and the example set by Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY. As a result of that, hundreds and thousands of patients have as well."
Another dimension to Jean LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was her love of playing nickel slots at casinos. "In the last few years, she played just from her winnings," Mrs. ABDULLAH smiles.
Lamentably, for a nurse, it was a long-time smoking habit that resulted in the lung cancer that finally claimed her. "She said to me a couple of weeks ago, 'Ironic isn't it'? recalled Mrs. ABDULLAH. " 'All the years I was a public-health nurse advising people to quit smoking…' "
Jean Marilyn LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was born in the Caledon region of Ontario on September 23, 1931, and died in Toronto on April 3, 2006, of lung cancer. She was 75. She leaves her long-time partner, Fred Barthel, daughter Marylin Bailey and son Paul LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY, two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Four taxi drivers attacked in 24 hours
Father of four dead after passenger stabs him in the neck, back and torso
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A24
A 40-year-old cab driver died after being stabbed by a passenger in east Toronto early yesterday -- one in a wave of four attacks on city-area taxi drivers within 24 hours.
Mahmood BHATTI, a father of four, was found bleeding from the back, neck and chest at around 3: 30 a.m. after his Beck cab slammed into the back of a parked car at Coxwell and Danforth Avenues.
He remained in hospital on life support, but doctors pronounced him dead at 10: 20 p.m.
More than a dozen cabbies who gathered outside Saint Michael's Hospital while Mr. BHATTI's family were at his bedside mourned him as a hard-working colleague and exemplary parent.
Beck general manager Gail BECK- SOUTER said the same of Mr. BHATTI, who owned his car and had driven for the company for about six years.
"This is a real tragedy," she said. "He is a terrific guy, very enthusiastic about business. Always wanting to make improvements within the industry. The guy with the good ideas. He'll be sorely missed."
A man was spotted fleeing the scene, and police are optimistic digital photographs from the in-car camera, required in all city taxis, will lead to an arrest.
In Markham, meanwhile, a second cab driver was in stable condition after his throat was cut in a carjacking around midnight.
In a third incident on Eglinton Avenue in west-end Toronto at around 5: 40 a.m., a cabbie driving for Royal Taxi was beaten and robbed of his vehicle, apparently after an argument. The car is a blue Chevrolet Impala bearing the licence plate ABPF 744. The driver was listed in stable condition.
And early Monday, a cabbie driving two men north on Highway 400 was robbed at gunpoint of cash and his phone and left stranded by the roadside after his taxi was stolen.
It was later recovered at a curling rink in Bradford, about midway between Toronto and Barrie, and provincial police retrieved photographs of the two assailants.
The last slaying of a Toronto cab driver occurred in September, after a gap of several years, when Morteazai KHORASSANI, 42, was stabbed in his parked taxi behind an apartment building on Don Mills Road. A 19-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder.
In general, violence against the roughly 5,000 taxis and 10,000 drivers has declined steeply in recent years, after cameras and other safety measures were implemented.
"Crimes committed against cab drivers have decreased by about 70 per cent since 2000," said Jim BELL, president of Diamond Taxicab and a leader of the Toronto Taxicab Alliance, an owners group.
Mr. BELL, who knows Mr. BHATTI, credits a range of city initiatives for the decline -- the in-car cameras, global positioning devices, special emergency flashers and enhanced driver-safety training.
"This has been a tough day," he said. "But it's an anomaly. We've seen it over the years where we've had a whole rash of incidents in a very short time and then nothing happens for a couple of years. You just can't predict when and how it's going to happen."
Bruce ROBERTSON, who heads the city's licensing division, concurred.
"This is a dangerous profession, for obvious reasons, but what's happened here is not typical at all. I don't know what would explain it."
Co-op driver Edward LEIGHTON, a 16-year veteran of the roads, says he figured out the risks long ago.
"I drive during the day, in the downtown, and I haven't had a problem in 10 years," he said.
"Late at night -- that's where almost of the problems happen. I'm cautious; I think that's why I've survived. I'm choosy about what areas I go into. But a lot of drivers have big expenses, they're desperate, so they'll pick up anybody."

After completing his B.Sc. at McGill University, (fun filled years of fraternity and playing Redman hockey), Tom began his career in business. He was a seasoned marketing, sales, and operations executive who had a passion for entrepreneurial opportunities. Tom greatly enjoyed various challenging positions that took him across Canada and around the world. Tom had a sincere love of nature. His cottage at Big Gull Lake was particularly special to him. He was a keen observer and had a deep understanding of the natural world. He was happiest in the outdoors - at his lake or in the garden. Tom will be remembered by his daughters as the best dad ever - from hours spent teaching them how to water-ski to offering his wise counsel on life's more complex issues. He was patient, reassuring, and most definitely their greatest fan. For those who knew him well, he will be missed for his passion and fight for life, his genuine positive attitude, his twinkling eyes, and bright smile. We would like to thank Doctor BERRY and his team at Sunnybrook Hospital and Doctors KOCHA, REID, and LOGAN and their team at the London Health Sciences Centre for their exceptional efforts. Tom's care at both facilities was outstanding and we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses involved in his care.

Ray ARSENAULT: Producer And Director (1929-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television pioneer who shaped Hockey Night in Canada into what it is today tackled anything. 'You name it, he did it'
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- There wasn't much that Ray ARSENAULT didn't do in the early years of television in Canada. The first few years of his career ranged from working at one of the first private television stations in Canada to figuring out how to run ads on the early Hockey Night in Canada. He worked for every network in the country as well as for many independent companies.
"He always believed good television had nothing to do with technological advances and all you ever needed and still do is teamwork, timing and a good yarn. He was a great storyteller and a playful soul," said his daughter Adrienne ARSENAULT, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News foreign correspondent.
Ray ARSENAULT produced one of the first live television events in Canada in September of 1954 after the 16-year-old swimmer Marilyn BELL was feted at city hall in Hamilton. The television station was CHCH and it had only started broadcasting in June of that year, less than two years after Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television had gone on the air.
Mr. ARSENAULT was in charge of working out how to do something that would have been easy in radio but was so far untried in television. City hall was too far from the station to run a cable so they used a microwave dish. "I remember setting up the microwave dish in the clock tower and pointing it back at the station," said Bill LAWRENCE, then a technician at CHCH who went on to become a well-known weatherman. "Ray was the one who directed the entire thing."
Mr. ARSENAULT had been one of three men with American experience hired to produce the first programs at CHCH. He had arrived from Detroit to find a primitive operation with two cameras.
"Someone would say we want to do this, or cover that, and Ray would be the one to figure out how to do it," Mr. LAWRENCE said. "We were all pupils of his and he was an educator in the early days of television in Canada."
A month after the Marilyn BELL program, Mr. ARSENAULT had to work out the logistics of a special broadcast on hurricane Hazel.
Later, at Hockey Night in Canada, he worked for MacLaren Advertising, which owned the rights to the series. One of his colleagues recalled how they came up with a see-through logo for advertisers that could be superimposed over the picture. They would place it in front of the camera lens, then switch to it for a shot of the beer company or service station.
The hockey games were live but so, too, were the commercials. Holed up in a small studio in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, Mr. ARSENAULT would direct Murray WESTGATE, who played the friendly Esso gas station owner, to give his trademark salute, "Happy Motoring." When a break in the play occurred, they would cut away to an ad. It had to be perfect, since it was live.
Perhaps one of Mr. ARSENAULT's toughest jobs was producing a daily situation comedy for CTV. It was called The Trouble with Tracy and could be best described as a kind of I Love Lucy knock-off. It was a co-production of CTV and an American studio to see whether it was possible to produce a daily sitcom.
"It was the first Canadian-produced sitcom, and I played the ditsy blonde," said Diane Nyland PROCTOR. "He was really good with actors, in spite of all the pressure. There was never an angry word between cast, directors and crew."
In spite of the Quebec name, Ray ARSENAULT was from Detroit. His father was part of a generation of Quebeckers who found work in the auto plants of Detroit. Ray went to local schools and learned television at Wayne State University. He joined the U.S. Marines in the late 1940s and remained until just before the start of the Korean War.
After returning home, he started working at WWJ, a television station in Detroit. It was an era in television when everyone who worked in it seemed to do everything. Mr. ARSENAULT learned a lot in a hurry. He quickly became a studio director, a job that demands the ability to run several things at once and yet remain calm. If a director is nervous, it soon shows in the face of the actor or television announcer.
For all that, one of the biggest things to happen to him at CHCH was to meet a young woman named Bette, who worked on the technical side of things. They married about two years later. He soon took his directing skills to MacLaren Advertising where he worked on Hockey Night in Canada but it wasn't long before he moved back to television.
In 1961, Mr. ARSENAULT was hired as executive producer at CFTO, Toronto's first private television station. He was in charge of ensuring things got on the air, trained new studio workers and produced daily programs.
"He was very skilled with live television in the days before we could edit videotape," said Murray CHERCOVER, who was Mr. ARSENAULT's boss at CFTO and then hired him for many projects when he was head of the CTV network. "Ray could go into a studio or live event with five or six cameras and edit by cutting and dissolving from camera to camera as he went along, and keeping to time.
"He did everything in television from documentaries to situation comedy. You name it, he did it"
As an independent producer and director, he also worked on the popular King of Kensington series. He was a founding member of the Director's Guild of Canada.
Raymond ARSENAULT was born in Detroit on December 28, 1929. He died of a pulmonary embolism in Toronto on August 27, 2006. He leaves his wife, Bette, and daughter, Adrienne, and sister, Mary.

KOPER, Chris (1943-2006)
Avid photographer, master sailor and former Human Resource specialist died peacefully, having lived with the ravages of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis for the past 2 years. Chris is survived by his beloved wife Margret COMACK and by his 3 children, Nicola (Mike BELL,) Vanessa and Aidan. Chris was devastated to leave his beloved granddaughter Wren Kathleen BELL. Chris leaves 3 step-children Shannon (and Jody), Tom, Tannis (and Todd as well as grand_son Greydon and newborn granddaughter Avery). Chris is mourned in Cape Town, South Africa by his sisters Lida, Marguerite (and John) and brother Gerhard (and Pam), cousins Wilfried (and Debbie), Jacqi (and Steve) and Mieke, as well as his Aunt Lida. Cousins in Holland will also miss Chris who was a frequent visitor. Chris was born in Cape Town, South Africa to Jack and Margaret KOPER who predeceased him. He grew up speaking Dutch in a family who loved the outdoors and the natural beauty of their environment. He was influenced by his father Jack who was an artist, photographer and a well known dinghy sailor and boat designer. Chris' family are remembered in South Africa for their sailing expertise and boat designs and Chris spent his life in competitive sailing with a variety of boats. Most recently he designed and built 2 sailing dinghies and spent many hours promoting and assisting others to build and sail these boats in several locations across the world. Chris came to Canada at the age of 27. He spent many years employed as a Human Resource specialist and held several executive level positions with national and world wide accountability. Chris lived in England and Belgium during his career and was able to travel extensively around the world, speaking 5 languages, over the years. Chris was an energetic and capable man who loved nature, music and art. He spent many occasions hiking and on canoe trips in northern Ontario with his son Aidan and later with Margret. He loved to travel and there were frequent trips to South Africa and Holland to visit family who meant so much to him. Above all else, Chris had a life long passion for photography and sailing. As a photographer, he captured beautiful pictures during his life, always seeing creativity in natural settings. He left a legacy of thousands of his photographs that he shared with family and Friends over the past year. Sailing for Chris was an experience that provided an affinity with the wind, waves and water and his natural ability to sail in any condition with confidence and ease was notable. He won many awards over the years and in recent times loved to race his Hobie Cat with wife Margret as his crew. Chris loved the community of Friends that he created through his course work with Landmark Education and during the past 7 years, his perspective and experience of life was enhanced with this work. While Chris built a life that he loved in Canada, his heart always remained in South Africa, a country that continued to draw him home time after time. He requested that his ashes be buried in a favourite spot in the mountains above Cape Town so that his spirit could rest where his heart always remained. Chris will be remembered and his life celebrated at a memorial service to be held at Trinity United Church in Listowel, Ontario on Saturday November 11, 2006 at 2 p.m. The family will receive Friends at the church one hour prior to the service, and a reception will follow the service at the church.

Helen ALLEN, Journalist (1907-2006)
She laboured for decades to improve the lot of unwanted children, many of whom were better off because of her efforts, writes Sandra MARTIN. At the end of the Vietnam War she also helped rescue orphans in Saigon
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
The concept may seem bizarre today, but in its era, the Toronto newspaper column Today's Child was an innovative force intended to improve the lives of thousands of emotionally needy and often physically damaged children. In the early 1960s, back in the days when having a child "out of wedlock" was socially unacceptable and before reliable contraception or abortions were generally available, many young women gave their unplanned babies up for adoption. The ranks of healthy infants were swelled by older children who had been abandoned by parents unable or unwilling to raise their own offspring or who had been removed from dangerous situations. Many of these "hard-to-place" children trundled from one foster home to another or marked birthday after birthday in orphanages and other residential institutions.
Helen ALLEN, a journalist who became a crusader for adoption, believed that all children deserved parents and a home to call their own. For nearly 20 years, she devoted her energies to the task through her column Today's Child in The Telegram in Toronto and the long-running television program Family Finder. Although, nobody knows for certain how many of these adoptions were successful, there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that many, many children were happier and healthier because of Ms. ALLEN's actions.
"Some social workers were very reluctant at the thought of exposing children to the public in this way, because it was an invasion of privacy, but I was all for it," recalled Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, a former social worker and adoption supervisor who knew first-hand the dire circumstances of these children's lives. She and Ms. ALLEN became colleagues and good Friends, sharing the same dedication and sense of humour.
The late media mogul John BASSETT, who was the last publisher of The Telegram, considered Ms. ALLEN's long-running adoption column "her real life's work." Ms. ALLEN "has helped this country enormously by giving new hope and new opportunities to the nation's richest resource, our children," he wrote in a tribute to her in 1982, and "nothing has given me greater pride than being associated with her in this task."
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born near Saskatoon, the only child of a Presbyterian minister and a school teacher. The family eventually settled in Aurora, north of Toronto, as her father moved from one congregation to another. He died of meningitis when Helen was five and her mother worked as a supply teacher to support them both. Ms. ALLEN later described her childhood as happy, although she regretted that there was never enough money to buy her a bicycle. It was only much later that she looked back as an adult and realized that "it's too bad to be an only child, too bad not to have a Dad."
After graduating from high school in 1925, Ms. ALLEN moved to Toronto to do a four-year degree in modern languages (French and German) at University College at the University of Toronto. By then, her widowed mother had married a man named PALMER, so Ms. ALLEN boarded with a family named GRIFFITHS while she attended university, financed with $2000 from her mother's savings. That's how she met the GRIFFITHS' daughter, Phyllis, who became a classmate, then a journalism colleague and a dear friend and housemate until she died more than 50 years later in 1978.
At U of T, Ms. ALLEN joined the German club, which turned out to be a lively collection of people, including professors Geoffrey HOLT and Barker FAIRLEY, who got together on a weekly basis to sing German songs. An older cousin, who worked on the student newspaper, The Varsity, introduced Ms. ALLEN to the editor, a young man named Charles STACEY. (A year older, he was destined for a stellar career as a military historian and became very well known as a biographer of Prime Minister Mackenzie King.) "Somehow I found myself accepting an assignment to cover a freshie tea that first week. It showed up on the front page, without a word changed, and I was hooked," she presciently told Judith ADAM/ADAMS, the author of the 1982 Ontario government publication, Today's Child and Helen ALLEN.
After graduating in 1929, Ms. ALLEN went to work as a reporter for The Telegram, a newspaper founded in 1876 by John Ross ROBERTSON as a vehicle to promote British and Imperial sentiments. For the next three decades, Ms. ALLEN did general assignment reporting, reviewed movies, covered political events and criminal trials, and edited the women's pages. In covering the 1939 Royal Tour of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth she wrote: "Everyone who has seen her is talking about the Queen. The Queen's smile. The Queen's charm. The Queen's beauty. The Queen's lovely gowns."
What made her name, however, was an assignment that she took on reluctantly in 1964 to write an adoption column for the paper. Instead of being the brainchild of one person, the idea came about as a confluence of incidents, experience and inspiration dating back to the early 1960s when The Telegram ran a front-page story about a young boy being publicly beaten by his father on a downtown street corner. Publisher John BASSETT assigned reporter Andrew MacFARLANE to investigate and write an article on child abuse.
Mr. MacFARLANE contacted the office of Doctor James BAND, the deputy minister of welfare in Ontario, who supplied huge amounts of information on child protection services and took Mr. MacFARLANE to visit an orphanage which housed dozens of children three years of age and under. Mr. MacFARLANE quickly realized that many of these children had short attention spans, played aggressively, and, despite being "cuddled" by volunteers, appeared lacking in warmth and curiosity. Both men believed these children needed families and permanent homes, if they were to have any chance of growing up emotionally healthy.
In 1964, Doctor BAND sought out Mr. MacFARLANE, who by then was The Telegram's managing editor, and suggested he run an "advertising" feature to make the public aware of the plight of these forgotten children. Both Mr. MacFARLANE and Mr. BASSETT took up the idea enthusiastically and assigned the column to Ms. ALLEN, telling her to contact the more than 50 regional Children's Aid Societies that operated in Ontario under the Child Welfare Act, find some children who were waiting for families, and run their pictures and write about them in the paper. The plan was to run Today's Child for a few weeks and check the response.
Children's Aid Societies, which are protective by definition, were largely horrified at the idea of parading children, along with their physical and emotional problems, in a public newspaper. To them, the column reeked of "freak shows" at carnivals. Only three were willing to participate -- Hamilton, Kenora and Toronto. Although disappointing, the response was strong enough to give Ms. ALLEN enough children to produce a daily column for three weeks.
The first child was a 15-month-old girl of mixed race named Hope, a difficult placement in those homogeneous days before the immigration rules relaxed and Canada had an official multiculturalism policy. Nevertheless, 40 prospective adoptive parents wrote in response to the story about Hope. Their letters were passed along to the Children's Aid Society for screening, assessing and processing. "I wrote abut 23 children in those first Today's Child columns that summer," Ms. ALLEN recalled years later, "and when the results were finally assessed, 18 of those youngsters found homes."
After three years of daily columns, Today's Child expanded to other daily and weekly papers throughout Ontario. The following year, Ms. ALLEN proposed doing a television version of the column based on the daily Ben Hunter Program in California, which delivered commercials for a variety of products, saving one day a week for children wanting to be adopted. Armed with a tape of the American show, Ms. ALLEN and Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH, then Ontario Adoption Co-ordinator, approached CFTO, the Toronto television station that was part-owned by Mr. BASSETT. "It took them all of 15 minutes to make up their minds," Ms. ALLEN reported later. Family Finder, which ran commercial-free, debuted in the fall of 1968 and for years was the longest-running program on the channel.
When The Telegram folded in 1971, the Ontario government hired Ms. ALLEN as an information officer in the Ministry of Community and Social Services. She continued to write the column three times a week (which was syndicated by the government to more than 20 daily newspapers including The Toronto Star), do the television program and speak about adoption to community and service groups.
In the early 1970s, television and newspaper reporting from Vietnam publicized the plight of many of the children who had become victims of the continuing conflict. The orphanages in Saigon were overflowing with abandoned or parentless children. Social changes, including a declining birth rate, had put an end to the baby surplus of a decade before. That fact, plus the human desire to help needy children, had lots of North Americans flying to Vietnam and trying to pick up babies in exchange for cash or services.
The local adoption agencies were floundering, so the Ontario Ministry of Social and Community Services sent Victoria LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH and Ms. ALLEN to Saigon to work with the Vietnamese. As the Viet Cong advanced and the Americans pulled out, the two women rescued close to 60 children, brought them to Canada and found homes for them. "The deputy minister told me, 'if we are going to do this, we will give it the same service we give our own children,' Ms. LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH said.
Ms. ALLEN received many honours, including being named to the Order of Canada and an honorary doctorate from York University and the Award of Merit from the City of Toronto. In the late 1970s, she was at an Order of Canada reception when she encountered fellow laureate and University of Toronto military historian Charles STACEY. " When I was at college, I dated Charles, who was then editor of the Varsity. He was in fourth year and I was in second," she told Ms. ADAM/ADAMS. "He went off to Oxford and then Princeton; I went on to the Tely as a reporter."
Ms. ALLEN and Colonel STACEY, a widower, renewed their Friendship and their affection for each other and were married in a small wedding at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Toronto on October 3, 1980. The bride was 73, and the groom 74. A little more than a year later, she officially retired from Today's Child (Judith ADAM/ADAMS took over the column for another seven years) and Family Finder, but continued to spend two days a week answering mail and writing Adoption Bulletins while her husband wrote his books.
The STACEYs were a very companionable couple. They loved to entertain at small dinner parties at Massey College, to read Jane Austen novels aloud to each other and to travel. Col. STACEY died suddenly of a heart attack in November of 1989, after nearly a decade of marriage. She continued to live in their Rosedale apartment until she suffered a heart attack and a fall late in 2002, and moved into the Leaside Retirement Residence.
Helen Kathleen ALLEN was born in Dundurn, Saskatchewan., on August 16, 1907. She died in Toronto of congestive heart failure on November 9. She was 99. Predeceased by her husband Charles STACEY and by her dear friend Phyllis GRIFFITHS, she is survived by her god-daughter Nadine BELL and her family.

Cabbie killed by racing Mercedes
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter with files from Nick PRON, Henry STANCU, Dale Anne FREED and David GROSSMAN
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had just dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Rd. It was 10: 20 p.m.
Racing north were two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds, each pushing 140 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, police say. Next to one driver was the popular video game Need For Speed.
As the Mercedes rounded a bend, the taxi made a left turn on to Whitehall Rd. A loud crash shattered the still of Tuesday night.
One of the Mercedes, a silver 1999 model, T-boned the taxi, drilling it into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say.
It was a tragic end to KHAN's life, which was brimming with hope as he looked forward to becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. It was a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and both had attended St. Andrew's College, a prestigious private school in Aurora, graduating in June 2004. One played on St. Andrew's football team, and both were average students who never got in trouble, said head football coach Courtney SHRIMPTON. One of them lives a tony neighbourhood just north of the Bridle Path. Yesterday, police would not comment on whether the cars belonged to the teens' parents.
As police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
"It's a horrible irony," said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game, which allows players to choose high-end cars and race them through city streets while being pursued by police cruisers.
"Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know," said LOBSINGER, adding "a game is a game, but when you get behind the wheel it's reality."
LOBSINGER described the game as an "ultra-violent driving simulation, fighting simulation and criminal simulation."
"But are games the cause?" he asked. "Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic."
Police say alcohol was not a factor, and that it's not clear if the video game was played before the two went out driving.
"I have no words to explain why this happened," said cabbie Muhammad NASEEM, who was a friend of KHAN's. "He was a very nice man, very quiet, very polite, all the good words you can think of can be used to describe him."
Earlier this week, recalled NASEEM, KHAN had told him that he planned to return home to the district of Jhang, in Pakistan's Punjab region. KHAN's mother was ill and he wanted to be with her. He also looked forward to visiting his brother, sister and wife of 15 years, whom he's helped support since moving to Canada almost six years ago.
He was looking forward to returning home as a Canadian citizen, something he would have become during a citizenship ceremony at the Scarborough Town Centre.
"He was so excited," said KHAN's friend Munir AHMAD, while visiting the coroner's office to identify the body. "He was planning to bring his family here."
Last night, a large group of Friends gathered at the east-end apartment KHAN shared with Shahid HASAN to call his family in Pakistan and break the devastating news.
"He had lots of Friends," said HASAN, who has lived with KHAN for the last five years in Scarborough. "He was a very kind man who was helpful to everyone."
Jim BELL, manager of Diamond Taxi, said KHAN had been with the company for three years and called his death a tragedy for everyone involved.
"Those kids must be feeling absolutely terrible and the parents of these kids who were racing must be feeling devastated."
Charged with criminal negligence causing death are Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao Dumani ROSS. ROSS is also charged with failing to stop after an accident causing death.
Outside the courtroom where the two teens made a brief appearance at bail court in College Park yesterday, the aunt of one described them as "really good boys."
"It's tragic, it's horrible what happened. Now I am going to be worried about him staying in jail with criminals."
Because lawyers for the pair weren't available, the two must return for separate bail hearings -- ROSS tomorrow and RYAZANOV on Monday. Neither has a criminal record.
The two long-time Friends chatted quietly to each other as they sat in the prisoner's box.
The Crown says it will oppose their release on two grounds: public outrage over the death and the likelihood of reoffending.

Doug FORD, 73: Athlete, business leader, member of provincial parliament
Started company from scratch
Put community and family first
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Doug FORD, the rags-to-riches entrepreneur and member for Etobicoke-Humber in the first Mike Harris government, has died of colon cancer at 73.
Mr. FORD was elected to the Ontario legislature in 1995 and served one term, until 1999, as a backbencher and member of the standing committee on finance and economic affairs.
He grew up "rough and tumble on the Danforth," in the words of his son Rob FORD, a sitting Toronto councillor.
"He was a baby out of 10 kids," Rob said yesterday. "He never had a father, just a mother. He never met his father."
With little money in the large family, the senior Mr. FORD left school after Grade 3 and for a time continued to struggle, even as an adult.
"Until the business took off, we were poor," his son said.
Doug FORD was also an avid athlete. He played guard for the East York Argos, and, in 1954, he attempted unsuccessfully to swim Lake Ontario alongside Marilyn BELL, who famously completed the first crossing.
"He never got across but he sure made a good attempt," Rob FORD said.
In 1962, he founded a company now known as Deco Labels and Tags, developing the firm into a multi-million-dollar concern with more than 100 employees and manufacturing facilities in Toronto and Chicago.
In 1995, during his election campaign, he said he had "run a company for 34 years, and we don't owe a cent and have never taken a dime in government grants.
"I believe my expertise can be useful to remedy (the province's) financial situation," he said.
Mr. FORD was an active member of the Rotary Club for 38 years. He was a long-time board member of the Etobicoke General Hospital and once raised $1.5 million for the hospital's first Computed Tomography scan machine.
He also volunteered for the Salvation Army Red Shield Campaign and Big Brothers.
"As a father, he was my best friend," said his city councillor son. "He taught me the value of a dollar. and hellip; He listened to everyone's perspective and their different views."
