In loving memory of our dear friend, Mandy, March 10, 2002.
If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven
To bring you home again.
No farewells were spoken
No time for goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears will flow
What it meant to us to lose you
No one will ever know.
Time! Where did you go?

Kenneth DEANE, Officer And Security Expert (1960-2006)
Former Ontario Provincial Police officer enjoyed a promising career in a paramilitary squad until he shot and killed native protester Dudley GEORGE in 1995. He left the force in 2002 and died in a traffic accident on Saturday
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Kenneth DEANE's life was changed -- some would say ruined -- by an incident that's now known as Ipperwash. On September 6, 1995, he shot and killed Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE at Ontario's Ipperwash Provincial Park during what was Canada's most important Indian protest since Quebec's Oka crisis of 1990.
Until that night, Mr. DEANE of the Ontario Provincial Police had an exemplary record, one that had helped smooth his way into the exclusive ranks of the Ontario Provincial Police's tactical rescue unit. As acting sergeant, he was leading a highly trained, four-man team of marksmen on the night he shot Mr. GEORGE.
"The whole sequence took place in 20, 30, 35 seconds," Mr. DEANE said at his trial in July of 1997. He was convicted of criminal negligence causing death. In his 2001 book, One Dead Indian, Toronto Star reporter Peter EDWARDS recounted the Ontario Provincial Police officer's description of what led up to the shooting. Mr. DEANE said he saw flashes of light coming from the barrel of a weapon inside a school bus that protesters were using to barge into an Ontario Provincial Police riot squad.
"It was an attempt to shoot a police officer," he told the court. However, he chose not to open fire because of the many officers who were in the way. "I saw a distinct muzzle flash originate from the interior of the bus."
The book went on to describe the actual firing of the weapon and Mr. DEANE's testimony that Mr. GEORGE was armed and had presented a threat. "I observed him shoulder a rifle and in a half-crouched position, scanned [the rifle] over our position." Mr. DEANE said he fired three shots from his highly accurate, Heckler and Koch sub-machine gun "as quick as I could."
"He [Mr. GEORGE] immediately went down on one knee and immediately got back up."
Still on the road, Mr. GEORGE looked to his right and left and walked a few steps, Mr. DEANE testified. He then did something rather odd for someone who was mortally wounded, with a broken collar bone, cracked ribs and a punctured lung, Mr. DEANE said. He testified that Mr. GEORGE raised his arm and threw the rifle into a grass-covered field, leaving himself unarmed and exposed to police fire.
Although Mr. DEANE had provided a detailed description of the rifle, another tactical rescue unit officer who was just metres away during the incident testified that he had observed Mr. GEORGE holding "a pole or stick." The officer also said that the only muzzle flashes he saw had come from his own gun. Hundreds of other shots were fired that night, all by the police, and the Ontario Provincial Police has since arrived at the view that the protesters were not armed.
For his part, Mr. DEANE fired a total of seven shots. Four had been aimed at other protesters and three at Mr. GEORGE. One bullet missed, one struck him in the lower leg, and the last found his torso.
Though Mr. DEANE spoke in a calm and self-assured manner, the judge at his trial did not believe him. Mr. Justice Hugh FRASER as much as called him a liar and ruled that Mr. GEORGE had been unarmed. He rejected the notion that Mr. DEANE had an "honest but mistaken belief" and found that Mr. GEORGE did not have a weapon when he was killed. He said Mr. DEANE had concocted his evidence "in an ill-fated attempt to disguise the fact that an unarmed man had been shot."
Judge FRASER, who also ruled that some other police officers had falsified evidence to support Mr. DEANE, found him guilty and sentenced him to a conditional sentence of two years less a day, plus 180 days of community service but no house arrest.
Mr. DEANE appealed the conviction to the Supreme Court of Canada. In February, 2000, the court ruled there were no grounds for a new trial. He did win a small victory, however. The Supreme Court denied an appeal by Crown prosecutors who had sought jail time instead of the conditional sentence.
"I still believe Ken DEANE was an honest police office who was hard done by by the justice system," lawyer Norman PEEL, who had represented Mr. DEANE at the trial, said yesterday. "He was misjudged as being cold and withdrawn when, in fact, he was just quiet." After the conviction, Mr. DEANE continued in the Ontario Provincial Police. Among other things, he was a bomb-disposal expert and a specialist in fighting biker gangs and terrorists. His fellow officers came to his defence, believing he had been victimized.
"He was an asset to the Ontario Provincial Police," said Inspector Robert BRUCE, who at that time believed Mr. DEANE "should remain in the position that he's in."
But Ipperwash continued to haunt Mr. DEANE.
"I sincerely apologize to the family and Friends of Dudley GEORGE and to his community for causing the terrible loss that they have been forced to endure," he said at a discipline hearing in September of 2001. For all that, he always maintained he had done nothing wrong the night Mr. GEORGE was shot and he fought to stay on the force.
It was a battle he lost. In October, 2001, he pleaded to a charge of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act. Four months later, an inquiry by police adjudicator Loyall CANN forced him to resign. Ms. CANN, a former deputy chief of the Toronto police force, said the shooting of Mr. GEORGE had resulted in "the most serious conviction" ever recorded against an Ontario Provincial Police officer.
"What could possibly be more shocking to society than to have a sworn, fully trained and experienced police officer, while on duty, in full uniform [and] using a police-issued firearm, kill an unarmed citizen," said Ms. CANN.
She ordered him to resign or be fired. He quit the next day and later found a job working in security at an Ontario Hydro nuclear station. More recently, he was Canadian sales manager for Canadian Allen-Vanguard Response Systems, a publicly traded company that provides state-of-the-art anti-terrorist equipment and systems.
Kenneth DEANE grew up in London, Ontario, the son of the late Robert DEANE and Katherine DEANE. One of six children, he had long dreamed of being a policeman. After leaving high school, he studied law and security at Fanshawe College and then joined the London police force. He was next accepted by the Ontario Provincial Police and quickly became involved with the tactical rescue unit, the special squad deployed in hostage-taking situations and in emergencies.
At his trial, a fellow officers described the patience Mr. DEANE had displayed during a hostage situation in Dryden, Ontario, when a man with a rifle threatened two women. The incident ended without violence. "He does not react emotionally, said Staff Sergeant Brian DEEVY, also a member of the tactical rescue unit. "I have never seen him lose control."
Mr. DEANE had also served with Ontario Provincial Police officers sent to help deal with the Oka crisis, and in 1991 had attended an incident at Grassy Narrows in Northern Ontario when an Ontario Provincial Police officer was shot dead.
The killing of Mr. GEORGE caused an outcry against the tactics and actions of the Ontario Provincial Police and the government of Ontario. It triggered the Ipperwash inquiry that has been sitting since July of 2004 under Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN. Mr. DEANE was scheduled to appear at the hearing next month and his testimony was keenly anticipated.
In the type of coincidence that feeds conspiracy theorists, Mr. DEANE is the third Ontario Provincial Police officer involved in the Dudley GEORGE shooting to be killed in a traffic accident. Sgt. Margaret EVE, who tried to negotiate with the natives at Ipperwash before the shooting, died in a crash involving a transport truck on Highway 401 near Chatham, Ontario Inspector Dale LINTON, the commander who gave the orders to Mr. DEANE's team, was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Smith's Falls in October of Mr. DEANE was killed in a traffic accident on Highway 401 near Prescott in Eastern Ontario. Snow squalls had caused vehicles to slow or come to a halt and his Ford Explorer clipped a tractor trailer that was blocking the road. Before he could extricate his vehicle, a second highway truck travelling behind him was unable to stop and the sport utility vehicle was crushed.
Kenneth DEANE was born in October of 1960. He died on February 25, 2006. He was 45. He leaves his wife, Lucie SIROIS. Also an Ontario Provincial Police officer, she was injured some years ago while investigating a traffic accident. Additionally, he leaves his brother Bill and sisters Barbara, Nancy, Sue and Judy. A funeral is set for 11 a.m. tomorrow in Sudbury, Ontario

Officer who shot Dudley GEORGE dies
DEANE killed in accident on 401
He was scheduled to testify at inquiry
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Kenneth DEANE, the elite Ontario Provincial Police paramilitary officer convicted of fatally shooting Indian activist Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE, was killed on the weekend in a traffic accident on Highway 401 in eastern Ontario.
DEANE, 45, was in charge of a four-man sniper team late at night on September 6, 1995, with the job of escorting the force's crowd management unit, or riot squad, as it marched toward about three dozen protestors outside Ipperwash Provincial Park.
Police marched on the park at night two days after Stoney Point Indians occupied the park, saying it contained sacred burial grounds. Their claims were later supported by documents released by the federal government.
DEANE, nicknamed "Tex" by colleagues, was expected to be called as a witness next month at the Ipperwash inquiry before Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN in the town of Forest, near the now-closed park.
The mandate of the inquiry is to probe events surrounding GEORGE's death, and to draft recommendations to prevent similar deaths in the future.
"He did wrong, but the family has always said that he shouldn't be the scapegoat," GEORGE family lawyer Murray KLIPPENSTEIN said.
"The family thinks the inquiry can still do its very important job very well," KLIPPENSTEIN said.
The inquiry has heard 101 witnesses: since it began hearings in July 2004.
Sam GEORGE, Dudley's brother, said in an interview yesterday that he felt bad when he heard of the death, which happened on Saturday afternoon during a whiteout on Highway 401 near Prescott.
"Any life lost is a tragedy," Sam GEORGE said. "I feel badly for his family."
DEANE is the third police officer involved in the massive police operation at Ipperwash to die in a traffic accident.
Sgt. Margaret EVE was hit by a transport truck on Highway 401 near Chatham in June 2000, while Insp. Dale LINTON, the officer who activated DEANE's unit that night, was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Smiths Falls in October 2000.
The Ontario Provincial Police said that DEANE was killed by a tractor-trailer at about 1: 15 p.m. on Saturday.
DEANE was driving a westbound Ford Explorer, and was attempting to steer around vehicles when he struck the back of a stopped tractor-trailer unit. A second tractor-trailer was unable to stop and struck his Explorer. DEANE was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger, who has not been identified, was taken to Brockville General Hospital with serious injuries.
Sam GEORGE, who never spoke to DEANE, said he would have been a valuable witness at the public inquiry.
"We needed to know why he thought he was there that night," Sam GEORGE said. "Who told him to go there? What he was told, and what was his mission… Now, we'll never know."
DEANE was found guilty of criminal negligence causing death in April 1997.
Provincial Judge Hugh FRASER ruled then that Dudley GEORGE, 38, was unarmed when he was shot, and that DEANE's fellow officers doctored their evidence to support him.
That trial, held in the Sarnia courthouse, heard that GEORGE had a bullet wound in his right calf, consistent with him being shot in the back of the leg, and another bullet wound that punctured a lung.
After being found guilty of shooting GEORGE, DEANE was given a conditional sentence of two years less a day, to be served outside jail, plus community service. At the time of the shooting, DEANE was a senior officer in the paramilitary Tactics and Rescue Unit, which carried sub-machine guns with night-vision scopes.
DEANE hung on to his job for 5½ years after the criminal conviction, as he unsuccessfully appealed the verdict to the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
Once his appeals were exhausted, he faced disciplinary charges under the Police Services Act.
In September 2001, he told a disciplinary hearing: "I sincerely apologize to the family and Friends of Dudley GEORGE and to his community for causing the terrible loss that they have been forced to endure."
However, under cross-examination, he said his apology did not mean that he admitted doing anything wrong in the park that night, when he and six other Ontario Provincial Police officers fired upon Indian protestors.
Former Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Thomas O'GRADY told the public inquiry last fall that he now believes that all of the Indian protestors were unarmed.
Prosecutor Denise DWYER asked DEANE at his 2001 disciplinary hearing if he felt he was justified in opening fire.
"That was my belief that night," DEANE replied.
"And it remains your belief today?" DWYER continued.
"Yes it does," he replied.
At those Police Services Act hearings in late 2001, DEANE's lawyer, Ian ROLAND argued that, apart from Ipperwash, DEANE had had a stellar 16-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police.
ROLAND noted that DEANE had risen since the night of GEORGE's death to become the force's top bomb and anti-terrorist weapons expert. ROLAND also noted that many political commentators blamed the former Conservative provincial government for the bloodshed at Ipperwash.
"Acting Sergeant DEANE didn't make the decision for the Ontario Provincial Police to be involved and cannot be held responsible for the damage that flowed from the incident," said ROLAND, calling dismissal a "professional death sentence."
However, when she ordered DEANE off the force, adjudicator Loyall CANN, former deputy chief of the Toronto force, called DEANE's conviction "the most serious" ever recorded against the Ontario Provincial Police.
"What could possibly be more shocking to society than to have a sworn, fully trained and experienced police officer, while on duty, in full uniform, using a police-issued firearm, kill an unarmed citizen?" she asked in her 28-page ruling.
"This is further aggravated by the fact that the sworn police officer was found by the presiding criminal court justice to have concocted and fabricated his evidence.
"I find that this is one of those exceedingly tragic incidents in which one act of negligent behaviour has totally nullified an otherwise promising career," she said, ordering DEANE off the force in January 2002 for discreditable conduct because of his criminal conviction.
In his April 1997 criminal trial, DEANE testified that he fired after observing muzzle flashes indicating that the protestors were firing at officers -- and that he saw a man in a half-crouched position holding a rifle and scanning the police.
He also gave a detailed description of the rifle.
But DEANE was found guilty after another officer who had been standing close to him at the time testified that he did not see any muzzle flashes, other than his own, and that he observed "a pole or stick" in GEORGE's hand.
DEANE had fired seven shots that night -- four at other natives and three at GEORGE.
After losing his job, DEANE worked in security with an Ontario Hydro nuclear station.
