Several die in boating accidents
The holiday weekend and boating safety week were marred by several drownings.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Tues., May 23, 2006
The deaths of several Ontario boaters this holiday weekend should be a chilling reminder of the importance of safe boating week, experts said yesterday.
"It is a deadly weekend on the water," said Rob SECCO of the London Power and Sail Squadron.
Safe Boating Awareness Week started Saturday, just as the season began for many Ontario recreational boaters.
Unfortunately, this year's boating season also began with cold water, high winds and several drownings.
The bodies of three Toronto-area men were found after they were forced to abandon their vessel in blustery conditions on Rice Lake in southern Ontario Sunday.
The men were among a group of seven out fishing when their boat was hit by high waves and began to sink about 500 metres from shore, police said.
The body of Holland CHOW, 54, of Richmond Hill, was found by rescuers on the south shore near Harwood, southeast of Peterborough.
The bodies of Albert CHOW, 51, of Stouffville, and Duylunong DIEP, 54, of Richmond Hill, were located by police not far from where the vessel went down.
Two men and two women, aged 17 to 59, reached shore and were rescued.
Elsewhere, the search continued yesterday for a canoeist missing near Thunder Bay.
Another man is presumed drowned after a canoeing accident northeast of Madoc. The man's canoe overturned on Wolf Lake and he wasn't wearing a life jacket, police said.
From 3,000 to 4,000 times a year, recreational boaters get into trouble, accounting for 60 per cent of search and rescue efforts in Canada, SECCO said.
That suggests even experienced boaters should review Transport Canada's Safe Boating Guide before starting the season, he said.
"Read it and reread it and refresh your mind."
Education is the key to safe boating, and the London squadron plans to set up a display at next weekend's open house at the Fanshawe Yacht Club and Sailing School.
Canadian Power and Sail Squadron offers a one-day basic boating course, which gives participants their pleasure craft operator card, but most squadrons suggest boaters take a longer, 16-week course accredited by the Canadian Coast Guard.
Many boaters simply don't have the experience and information they need to stay safe this summer, SECCO said.
"I think people just get in their boats and go. There is no preparation work. Let's enjoy a safe boating season in 2006."
Boating Safety Facts
- For safe boating tips and courses, contact your local Canadian Power and Sail Squadron. Squadron listings can be found at www.cps-ecp.ca or call 1-888-277-2628.
- Surface water temperatures in lakes Huron and Erie are hovering at 2 to 4°C. Cold water can kill instantly when the shock of falling in causes a reflexive gasp, drawing water into the lungs.
- Hypothermia begins when the body's temperature drops below 35°C. The loss of body heat causes loss of dexterity and consciousness and eventually death. In water at 2 to 4°C, it takes only 15 to 30 minutes to lose consciousness and from 30 to 90 minutes to die.

Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT, Broadcaster: (1935-2006)
Articulate, bilingual and passionate, she became the owner of a commercial radio station -- the first aboriginal to do so in Canada, writes Sandra MARTIN. It turned out to be a powerhouse enterprise
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT had more "firsts" in her life than most people have fingers. The first aboriginal woman to own and operate a commercial radio station and the first woman to be inducted into the Canadian Aboriginal Business Hall of Fame, she had many other achievements, including membership in the Orders of Ontario and Canada and an honorary doctorate from Brock University.
Articulate, bilingual and female, she was an obvious candidate for community and cultural boards in the postfeminist, multicultural, postconstitutional Canada of the 1980s and 1990s. What mattered, though, was what she brought to these privileged positions: passion, experience, advocacy, business acumen and commercial success as a broadcaster and the Chief Executive Officer of her own business.
Cultural advocate Nalini Stewart, who met her after both women were appointed to the Canada Council in 1998, remembers Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT quoting Métis leader Louis Riel at her first board meeting: "My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who will fuel their spirits."
This statement, which Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT repeated frequently, was like a mantra. "She was a very passionate advocate, but she was not strident," said Ms. Stewart, who credits Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT with pressing the council to hire more aboriginal arts officers. "She was always educating us… and I felt very enriched by all the things I learned from her."
"Suzanne was a grand lady who brought enormous pride to her people," said Tony BELCOURT, president of the Métis Nation of Ontario. Having known her since 1972, he said she was like a sister to him. "She met every challenge head-on, persevered and was successful in everything she touched -- in business, in the arts, in communications, public service and in life. She gave 110 per cent."
Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT was born in the Laurentians, north of Montreal in the middle of the Depression, the only daughter and middle child of Achille Joseph and Jeanne Marie BURNETT (née FILLION.) She was proud of her Métis heritage, which she could trace back through both sides of her family. She loved to tell stories about how her grandmother made and sold hats to supplement her income after she was widowed in her 40s, with 12 children to raise and a farm to run. Her mother carried on the artisan tradition by designing sweaters, hiring local women to knit them and then selling the finished product to tourists. At 7, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT was hard at work as a courier, delivering wool to knitters and picking up the finished pieces to take back to her mother to assemble into sweaters.
Her parents sent her to boarding school at Pensionnat des Saint-Anges, a convent in Saint_Jérome, Quebec, where the nuns rapped her knuckles if she didn't attend to lessons or speak clearly in class. Decades later, she told an interviewer that her parents had warned her before she left home to keep her Indian blood a secret because "it doesn't show." She believed her parents were trying to protect her, but it left her "wondering what was wrong with it."
After the convent, she went to Proulx Business College to learn typing and shorthand. The job choices in her community in the 1950s were few: "The bank, the Bell, or the mill." She wasn't interested in the first two, so she applied for a job as a secretary, but the mill owner rejected her, saying she was too talented. According to Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT, he called her father and said, "don't let her work in this small town. It will bury her." Instead, the mill owner introduced Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT to the manager of CKJL-AM (now CJER-AM,) a radio station that had opened in Saint_Jerome in 1952. The manager was so impressed with her diction and pronunciation that he gave her a job.
Later, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT credited her knuckle-rapping nuns for getting her a start as a broadcaster. But it was her own drive, journalistic talents and easy charm that won her a job as host, producer and public relations director of the station when she was 19, a position she held for six years. During this time, she also repackaged some of her programs for other stations around the province, took night classes in public relations and marketing at McGill University, and began working as a freelance journalist in print as well as broadcast.
With her striking colouring -- pale skin and chestnut hair and dark eyes -- she also found work as a model, becoming "the face" of the Montreal Royals baseball team and appearing in commercials on television. She made the most of the hedonism of the 1960s travelling around Europe working as a freelance print and broadcast journalist, living for a time in Paris, where she was said to have stayed in Edith Piaf's apartment and made Friends with Jacques Brel, hooking up with Gypsies in Spain and acting in commercials for NBC in New York.
Back in Canada, she converted a Laurentian lodge into a successful art gallery. She sold the business after she met and married Gordon BURNETT, owner of CHOW-AM in Welland, Ontario, in 1967. They soon had a baby daughter, Michèle-Elise BURNETT. The family moved to St. Catharines, where Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT was a full-time mother and volunteer for several years. One day, after dropping her daughter at school, she was struck by the empty hours in her days. "I'm 40 years old. I'm going to be 60 one day and I'm going to turn around and say 'what have I done with my life,' " she told Niagara magazine in May, 2005.
She came up with Chansons à la Française, a program idea that she turned into a one-hour show on CHOW that quickly expanded into two, and then four hours. The Ontario Ministry of Culture sponsored its distribution to more than 20 AM and FM radio stations in the province. That led to frequent invitations to appear as a commentator on francophone and Québécois talent on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's Morningside, first when Harry Brown was a host and then with Don Harron.
In the recession of the early 1990s, her husband's AM radio station was gasping for survival. In 1995, she formed a company, R.B. Communications, and bought her husband's firm Wellport Broadcasting Ltd., and became the owner of a commercial radio station -- the first aboriginal to do so in this country. She was 60 years old and her husband was 75. Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT knew that having an FM frequency was essential for the station's success and she also knew that there was a licence for an FM frequency -- 97.1 -- available from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.
"I looked at my mom and she looked at me and we said: 'Okay, let's go for it,'" said her daughter Michèle-Elise BURNETT, who was then 28 and in the business, having studied radio and television arts at Ryerson in Toronto. They won the licence in 1997, and launched a new format country music station they called Spirit 91.7 F.M. "It was a powerhouse," said Ms. BURNETT. "We became the second-most powerful station in the market, and very competitive."
Beginning in the 1980s, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT had begun sitting on the boards of community native and arts and culture organizations, including the Canadian Native foundation for the Arts, TVOntario, the Métis Nation of Ontario, the Canada Council for the Arts and Brock University. At one time, she was working on six major boards simultaneously.
About three years ago, Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT was having trouble breathing. She was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive scarring of the lungs that makes it increasingly difficult for them to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream. There is no cure and treatment options are negligible. Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT applied for a lung transplant, but she was an unsuitable candidate. She sold the station in 2004, but continued her advocacy work. About a year ago, she and her husband, who had led separate lives for some time, separated. Their daughter said that the radio station was the last thing her parents had in common. After it was sold, they divorced.
Ms. ROCHON- BURNETT made her last public appearance in February when she was the first woman to be inducted into the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business Hall of Fame. Still beautiful, her shoulder-length black hair still shiny, she made a joke about her "leash." It was a reference to the portable oxygen tank held by her 12-year-old grand_son, who had designed a backpack to make it easier for her to carry it around. Always intuitive, she spoke as though she were making a farewell speech, rather than accepting an award. "When you start reliving your life, you realize you don't really have any worries about dying because it is part of life," she said. "I am here to let you know that my life was good. It was full of challenges, but it was a great life." Referring to the many boards on which she served, she was grateful that "her dreams had become a reality" and that she had had the opportunity to work with people who had "the same belief in aboriginal capacity and power."
Suzanne ROCHON- BURNETT was born on March 10, 1935, in Mont Rolland, Quebec She died in Welland, Ontario, of a brain hemorrhage on April 2, 2006. She was 71.
She is survived by her daughter Michéle-Elise BURNETT and her husband Bill REICH and two grand_sons. She also leaves her former husband, Gordon BURNETT. There will be a traditional ceremony and celebration of her life on May 7 at 2 p.m. at the Pond Inlet at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario

Police urge caution after boating deaths
By Caroline ALPHONSO with a report from Canadian Press, Page A10
Police are advising people to take additional precautions when swimming and boating after several accidents in Ontario marred the first long weekend of the mild season.
On Rice Lake, near Peterborough, the bodies of two missing boaters were found yesterday after windy conditions forced them, along with five others, to abandon their boat Sunday afternoon.
Police recovered the bodies of Albert CHOW, 51, of Stouffville, and Duylunong DIEP, 54, of Richmond Hill, not far from where their boat went down, bringing the death toll in the accident to three. The body of Holland CHOW, 54, of Richmond Hill, was found Sunday by rescuers near Harwood.
The men were part of a group of seven who were fishing Sunday when their boat was hit by high waves and began to sink, police said. The four others, all from the Greater Toronto Area, swam to shore.
Ontario Provincial Police Constable Dana MELLON said that those venturing out on the water should be cautious, especially around this time of year.
"You certainly have to use some common sense. The water at this time of year is quite frigid," Constable MELLON said. "If you are going to be out in a boat, you should certainly have your life jacket on."
The seven people were not wearing life jackets at the time of the accident on Rice Lake. They started to put them on only after the boat started filling with water, Constable MELLON said.
"I'm a boater myself," he said, "and even in warm water, trying to struggle into a life jacket once you're in the water is extremely difficult."
Earlier yesterday, police using a helicopter, divers and a canine unit searched the waters for the two missing boaters, focusing on the area where the boat sank.
At the time, police said the prospect of finding the boaters alive was slim because the water was choppy and frigid.
The Rice Lake accident was among several in Ontario on the Queen Victoria Day long weekend. The weather was unseasonably cold and wet, bringing rain and, in some areas, snow.
Police were looking for a canoeist missing on Black Bay, near Thunder Bay. The search began after two men did not return from their trip on Sunday. One of the canoeists, however, was found in good condition after an overturned boat was spotted.
In another incident, a man is presumed drowned after a canoeing accident northeast of Madoc. His canoe overturned in Wolf Lake and he wasn't wearing a life jacket, police said.
