Runner dies in marathon
By James CHRISTIE with a report from Omar EL AKKAD, Page A10
A 41-year-old Toronto runner collapsed near the end of the 2006 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon and died in hospital.
Martin POYSER fell to the pavement at Wellington and Bay Streets, 800 metres from the finish line of the 41.195-kilometre course.
"He was given cardio-pulmonary resuscitation within a minute at the scene and Emergency Medical Services paramedic service were there within three minutes to take him to Mount Sinai Hospital," said race general manager Dana ALLEN of Toronto. "They worked on him for about an hour in hospital, but he did not survive."
Mr. POYSER is the first fatality in the seven-year history of the event. Last October a 36-year-old Oakville man died after running a half-marathon in the Toronto Marathon.
"We send our condolences to Martin's family, Friends and fans," said Alan BROOKES, the race director. "Martin will be remembered as a wonderful spirit, with a tremendous passion for running."
Relatives at Mr. POYSER's house yesterday refused to speak to a reporter. One family member, contacted yesterday evening, said he was still on the phone with a doctor regarding what happened.

Crash claims former region mayor
By Hank DANISZEWSKI, Free Press Reporter, Mon., June 5, 2006
Former Saint Thomas mayor Joanne BROOKS, who died in a weekend crash, left her city a bigger and better place, says former colleague and Ontario Labour Minister Steve PETERS.
"She had to be one of the most community-minded people ever in the history of Saint Thomas," PETERS, whom BROOKS succeeded as mayor in 1999, said yesterday.
London police confirmed BROOKS, 63, was killed in a crash on Highbury Avenue near Dingman Drive Saturday during a heavy rainstorm. Her death was one of three on area roads that day.
The southbound pickup truck BROOKS was driving flipped and landed in a ditch.
BROOKS spent 13 years as a Saint Thomas alderman, topping the polls three times before being appointed by council to succeed PETERS after he won office as an member of provincial parliament.
After 18 months as an appointed mayor, BROOKS ran for the job in the 2000 election, but lost to Peter OSTOJIC by 86 votes.
She ran for mayor again in 2003, but finished second to Jeff KOHLER, the current mayor.
PETERS said BROOKS's "crowning achievement" was chairing the committee that negotiated a 1995 annexation agreement with Southwold and Yarmouth townships, giving Saint Thomas badly needed land for new development.
"It was the first annexation in 30 years and allowed for tremendous residential development. She worked so hard on that," said PETERS
Born and raised in Saint Thomas, BROOKS worked for many years as a salesperson at the auto dealership now known as Saint Thomas Ford.
She also owned and operated a hairstyling shop and a children's wear store and was active in many civic groups, including the Trillium Fund, First United Church and Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
BROOKS was a founder and president of Christmas Cares, an organization that has delivered food and toys to needy Saint Thomas-Elgin families for 25 years.
BROOKS and her husband, Stirling, had been married for 43 years. Along with her husband, she's survived by her son, John, daughters Shelly and Sue and six grandchildren.
Visitation will be held at Williams Funeral Home in Saint Thomas tomorrow from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. at First United Church.
Donations may be made to the Joanne BROOKS Community Charity Foundation.
