Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON loved family and the law
He would read a book a day and made regular visits to the local library, said daughter and Owen Sound mayor Ruth LOVELL
By Scott DUNN and Denis LANGLOIS, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Long-time Grey County Justice Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON died Monday in his 90th year.
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON practised law in London, Ontario, from 1940 until his appointment to the Grey County court bench in 1970. He retired in 1990.
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's daughter Ruth LOVELL, the mayor of Owen Sound, said the family will always cherish her father's humour.
"He had a wonderful sense of humour," LOVELL said in an interview Tuesday evening.
She said her father had two passions in life -- his family and the law. Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON adored his grandchildren, LOVELL said, and they spent a lot of time with him.
He enjoyed cross-country skiing, cycling and reading.
LOVELL said he would read a book a day and made regular visits to the local library.
That love for the library has prompted the family to ask that donations be made to the library's book fund in memory of Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and in lieu of flowers.
Owen Sound lawyer Brian BARRIE said he had "nothing but admiration" for Justice THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
BARRIE recalls hearing as a young lawyer Justice THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was supposed to be "smart, curt, A bit crusty," -- a worrisome prospect for a young defence lawyer starting out in county court.
"I found him to be smart, very polite but he would not suffer fools lightly," BARRIE said. "And he usually had the case figured out with the right decision long before the lawyers got to the end of their presentations."
Justice flew with him because he was so efficient.
When he wasn't busy he made some calls to other jurisdictions, looking for work to do, BARRIE said.
BARRIE noted the judge's sense of humour and that "all that crustiness was just a little bit… a gown that he wore because he had a real touch for humanity and understanding of humanity and loved a good story and could laugh with the best of them."
Ralph ADAM/ADAMS, a Sun Times reporter for 11 years, remembered the judge as a "regular guy."
He would talk with the judge in his chambers about matters in court, some he'd use in stories and some he wouldn't.
"He ran it pretty well. He wasn't too harsh," ADAM/ADAMS recalled Wednesday.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON is survived by his wife Eleanor, three children, including Peter and Tim, his grandchildren Kelly, Scott and Chris LOVELL, Sean and Jennifer THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Mimmi, Lina and Erik THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and great-grandchildren Alexis and A.J.
He is also survived by his sister, Ruth Dawson, and his brother Jack THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Predeceased by his brother, Alfred.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Fire just the start of family's string of bad luck
Thefts and loss of animals followed soon after fire left Park head family homeless
By Scott DUNN, Monday, March 27, 2006
Since a house fire on March 16 threatened Lee-Anne LIHOU's family's lives and left them homeless, bad luck has lingered like a dark cloud.
The fire claimed the lives of four animals: Peaches, a cat that ran back into the house despite the flames, turtles Timmy and Tammy and a dog named Prince, which had to be put down later.
The fire nearly claimed the family too, LIHOU said in an interview Monday.
But 14-year-old Cara spotted sparks about 1 a.m. The girl woke her parents and they followed their emergency escape plan. Part of that plan included grabbing the dogs, cats and birds and important papers, LIHOU said.
There was no smoke in the house at first. Within five minutes the fire had spread throughout the home. The phoneline was dead and the wired-in smoke detector didn't sound because the wires were burnt.
Their daughter tried to run back into the house for the turtles but her brother stopped her.
The fire looked like it started in the rafters around the chimney, and was difficult to fight because roof layers created spaces for the fire to creep, said Terry HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON, acting emergency services manager with the South Bruce Peninsula Fire Department.
LIHOU thinks their house was about 140 years old. Insurance is expected to replace the house with a smaller one, she said.
But bad luck continued to haunt the family.
On March 20 someone complained to animal welfare officials about the temporary quarters the family set up for its dogs, cats and birds in two outbuildings.
There were five birds a cockatoo, two parakeets, a cockatiel and a budgie and a cat in a little insulated shed with a space heater. There were five dogs in an unheated but insulated garage, each in either a cage or partitioned kennel.
Neighbours were keeping an eye on the animals and so were the LIHOUes. But the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals concluded the living conditions either had to be improved or the animals would have to be moved.
Without alternative homes for all her pets, two dogs were adopted out and two more dogs and a cat need new homes now. LIHOU refuses to temporarily adopt out the animals, then take them back in six months when the new house should be built. That would be too stressful for the animals, she said.
Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals inspector Jennifer BLUHM said in an interview that the animal care concerns were valid but that the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was at the LIHOU home both to investigate a complaint and to help. She said the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals offered to find a place for the animals to stay.
She didn't want to get into details and said she already regretted having to publicly refer to the animal care of the family.
LIHOU told her story between bursts of tears, with hope that someone will adopt Pepper, a border collie-Australian mixed breed, and Jeannie, a red and white border collie.
The cat, a grey calico named Chrissi, is staying with LIHOU's aunt in Kilsyth, until someone adopts him.
The family's troubles continued.
On Friday, someone stole her son's money while he was out of one of the two Owen Sound motel rooms where the family is living temporarily. He got upset and started yelling what had happened and someone called the police on him for causing a disturbance.
On Sunday, LIHOU's bag of belongings was stolen from the grocery store where she works. The bag contained a pen with great sentimental value.
LIHOU said her family will move into another house on April 1 where no pets are allowed in Park head until their new house is built.
Anyone wanting to adopt the dogs or cat can call LIHOU at 370-8518.

Life was a parade for Millie SANDRIN
Former reeve worked hard at village's Santa Claus parade
By Scott DUNN, Tuesday, April 11, 2006
Millie SANDRIN, the community-minded, Santa suit-wearing, laughter-loving former Chatsworth reeve, died Monday at 66.
She died of cancer, which was diagnosed last summer.
Though quiet around the county council table unless something got her excited, she was relied upon to tell a joke or two at council lunches.
At a Grey County warden's party, she dressed up as Rita MacNeil to lip-synch the popular Cape Breton singer's songs. She started getting invitations to do all sorts of parties and did about five or six a year.
She drove a school bus for 23 years, coached girls hockey and baseball, umpired ball and dragged the ball diamond before gametime, and drove hockey players to games on the bus.
She jointly won the Alan Loucks Memorial trophy for recreation in the late 1980s with fellow Chatsworth councillor Terry McKay.
"She did a lot for the village here," said Laurie STILLER, the eldest of the three girls Walter and Millie SANDRIN had. "I think a lot of kids here can say that she was kind of their mom, too, always being there playing baseball, hockey, bus driving."
She was a Chatsworth Legion ladies' auxiliary member and is credited with helping to start the Chatsworth Christmas parade
Ms. SANDRIN began putting on a Santa suit and visiting children in the village on Christmas Eve 32 years ago. When the parade began a few years later, she was Santa's local representative for 25 years. She rode in the parade in a cherry picker one year and a manure spreader another, she once said.
If she is to be remembered for one thing, it would be for her community involvement, STILLER said.
McKAY, a Chatsworth councillor for 22 years, served with Ms. SANDRIN and lost to her when she became reeve. He saw her a week before she died. "She was a wonderful woman, she will be sadly missed."
She served as a village councillor for 23 years and as reeve for seven. She chose not to run for council for the amalgamated Municipality of Chatsworth in 2000.
She got involved in politics for the love of the community, McKAY said. "As far as Millie being a politician, I don't think Millie was a politician. I think she got in there because she wanted to be able to help the village. And she certainly did that."
Chatsworth Mayor Howard GREIG remembered SANDRIN's sense of humour most.
There will be a minute's silence in her honour at the next Chatsworth council meeting April 19.
She is survived by her children Laurie and her husband Gord STILLER Sharon and her husband Jim STIRLING and Donna SANDRIN and her partner John ENGLISH and her grandchildren.
Visitation hours Wednesday will be 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at Currie Funeral Home in Chatsworth. The funeral will take place at 1 p.m. at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church on John Street in Chatsworth. Interment will be at Glen Williams Cemetery, near Georgetown. Ms. SANDRIN's late husband, her parents and grandparents are in the family plot there.
A lunch will be served at the Chatsworth Legion after the funeral service.

Former Wiarton mayor remembered
Barney McKILLOP would call from his winter home in Florida to talk about local news
By Scott DUNN, Page A3
Just remembering Barney McKILLOP made Ruthann CARSON smile.
McKILLOP's funeral took place Thursday but CARSON said talking about him made her feel better. He enjoyed life, he was upbeat and ready to tell a joke or set someone up for a prank.
McKILLOP, 80, died unexpectedly early Monday morning of an aneurysm. CARSON worked with him while he was mayor and she was the deputy chief administrative officer and later chief administrative officer of the town.
McKILLOP was passionately interested in Wiarton, while on council and after. He was elected first as a town councillor in 1985. During that term Wiarton was under provincial supervision for deep financial problems.
While on council, McKILLOP could be feisty, said Wiarton Echo publisher and editor Keith GILBERT. But he was also easy to get along with.
Even when he was upset about something, he usually laughed about it, GILBERT said.
"You either like him or hate him. He's very set in his ways," said Margaret McKILLOP, McKILLOP's wife for the past 13 years.
She described her husband as "fun-loving" and a "gambler" who owned race horses in New Jersey in partnership with others. He knew his way around a racing form as well as the card table when playing bridge.
McKILLOP was elected mayor in 1988 amid a house-cleaning by voters who favoured "new thinking" and McKILLOP's preference for more openness, CARSON said.
He served two terms before retiring in 1994, after which he and his wife took a trip around the world and started wintering in Florida.
Their world tour was taken partly by container ship. They also took trips to Indonesia, China a couple of times, Vietnam and Turkey. McKILLOP liked meeting different people and experiencing different cultures, said Margaret McKILLOP.
Though out of politics, McKILLOP remained interested in Wiarton affairs. He would call CARSON and others from his winter home in Florida to talk about news he'd read in the Wiarton Echo.
"It was always interesting to hear his point of view," CARSON said.
GILBERT said he would get several calls from McKILLOP every winter about news in the Echo, which he read in Florida. The last call was about the number of people who were running for mayor in South Bruce Peninsula.
"I liked him personally as a friend and as a mayor I think he did very well," GILBERT said.
McKILLOP was born in Toronto. He married, had one son and retired as an inspector for the Toronto Transit Commission.
He used to come up to Wiarton to fish and loved the area so he retired here, Margaret McKILLOP said. By then, his son, Brian McKILLOP, had already moved to Markdale.
Bernard (Barney) McKILLOP is survived by wife Margaret, his son Brian and his wife Sandra of Markdale and his grandchildren Janine (Mike) LOVE of Chesley and Jessica of London.
He leaves his step-children Carole (Mike) CLEARY of Allenford, Jim (Linda) WYONCH of Colpoy's Bay, Nancy WYONCH (Brian CLEAVER) of Port Elgin, Debbie (Steven) SCOTT of Port Elgin, Janet WYONCH of Milton and by seven step-grandchildren and one step-great grandchild. He was predeceased by his parents, his first wife, Dorothy, and his brother, Harold.

'Destined for the military'
Fallen soldier remembered as someone who loved army life
By Scott DUNN with files from The Canadian Press, Thursday, October 05, Cpl. Jimmy MITCHELL always wanted to be the protector. The 32-year-old Owen Sound-born soldier died as one Tuesday in Afghanistan, during an insurgent attack with rocket propelled grenades and assault rifles. Fellow Royal Canadian Dragoon, Sgt. Craig Paul GILLAM, of South Branch, Newfoundland, died with him while protecting a road construction crew.
Robert Thomas James MITCHELL grew up in Owen Sound, attended West Hill Secondary School to the end of Grade 10, then switched to Saint Mary's High School in 1992.
Retired West Hill special education teacher Jim McGREGOR recalled the gangly young man with red hair as a gentle, happy loner.
MITCHELL got into scrapes at the school and was very protective of his younger brother. MITCHELL also struggled to fit in and many at the school didn't expect him to graduate. But McGREGOR knew differently "and he certainly did mature."
It was McGREGOR who recommended MITCHELL switch high schools to get a fresh start and MITCHELL did improve there. He enlisted in the Forces straight out of high school.
"He ended up being in the Armed Forces, which is what he always wanted to do," McGREGOR said.
"He'd put on a fairly tough exterior but inside he was a caring kid. I sometimes think we stereotype a lot of these guys, you know, the big Rambo types, but Jim wasn't one of those."
Everyone who knew MITCHELL said he was destined for the military.
Family friend Norm BIGGAR said MITCHELL was always interested in "enforcement," noting he joined Owen Sound police auxiliary for a while.
"He seemed to want to do that kind of thing. He wanted to be out and helping people," said BIGGAR, who works at Rogers Cable with MITCHELL's father, Bob MITCHELL.
Peter SCOTT is Bob MITCHELL's nephew. He watched Jimmy MITCHELL grow up, went to his minor hockey games and later his wedding at Saint Mary's Church in Owen Sound in 2000.
MITCHELL enlisted in the regular Forces straight out of high school but was injured during basic training and had to drop out. He re-enlisted more than six years ago.
"That says a lot for him too," SCOTT said. "I believe that was his purpose and destiny to be in the military. I don't believe it was his purpose and destiny to get killed."
He cared for his fellow soldiers and loved the adventure of army life and "he put his country ahead of his family," SCOTT said.
MITCHELL's father-in-law, Gary HASS, told the St. Catharines Standard that MITCHELL was proud of the work he was doing and felt strongly he was working toward the greater good.
"He was dedicated to his family and dedicated to his military career," said HASS, of Fort Erie.
MITCHELL graduated from Niagara College and his first military posting was with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in Edmonton. He served with the Royal Canadian Regiment and, most recently, with the Royal Canadian Dragoons as part of North Atlantic Treaty Organization's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.
MITCHELL had moved into a new home near Canadian Forces Base Petawawa just days before he was sent overseas.
Maj. James Follwell of the Dragoons said MITCHELL was an avid runner who competed in iron man races and had applied for JTF2, the country's elite commandos.
Parents Bob, Carol, and their son Mark MITCHELL took a chartered flight to Petawawa on Tuesday.
SCOTT said MITCHELL's body will be returned to Canada Friday. Funeral arrangements include a service in Petawawa, he believed, but details were not known.
MITCHELL, who was scheduled to return home next month, leaves his wife, Leanne, and three children, ages five, three and two.
Owen Sound Legion president Bob GRIFFITH is a good friend of Bob MITCHELL. When his friend said Jimmy wanted a career in the military, GRIFFITH advised him how to go about it.
After he was discharged for medical reasons, GRIFFITH had several talks in his home with Bob MITCHELL about whether his son should return to the military.
GRIFFITH feels for Bob and Carol MITCHELL for all they're going through "But then you've got to look at it (as) this young lad really wanted to go into the military, so he was doing what he wanted to do. There's nothing else in life he wanted to do but be in the military," said GRIFFITH, who spent 45 years in the armed forces.
"We all go in knowing this is a possibility. It's just that I was really fortunate in that I never had something like this happen in my tour."

Family to celebrate SHAW's long life
Markdale woman dies at age 108
By Scott DUNN, Thursday, November 09, 2006
Mabel SHAW's death Monday after 108 years of life puts her among a select few.
The Markdale resident made it into the 100-club, an exclusive group of folks that Statistics Canada estimates number around 3,795 - all but 740 of them women.
It's cause for celebration, not just for living so long, but doing so with health and faculties intact, said her 83-year-old daughter, Velma SPENCER, who lived with her mother in a bungalow. That's where Mabel SHAW died, surrounded by family.
SPENCER said she's celebrating her mother's life, not mourning her loss, for heartfelt reasons shared by SHAW's large family which includes 11 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
"This is a celebration for us. Absolutely no question. We're all in total agreement about that," she said by telephone Wednesday. "Just the fact that we were incredibly fortunate to have her for this long."
SPENCER says the family agrees one key to SHAW's remarkably long life was their mutual love. Without that, "she would have seen it as a sign that we had given up on her and I'm sure she wouldn't have lived."
Both she and her mother were in good health, so they lived together comfortably. SHAW never went to the hospital when her health started to fail in September. Her family, including a niece who is a nurse, took care of her.
SHAW told The Sun Times in July, days before her 108th birthday, that she simply takes life one day at a time.
Raised on a farm, Mabel SHAW worked as a mother's helper and at several jobs before marriage, then never worked again outside the home, SPENCER said.
In the early years of their marriage, Earl SHAW carried the mail in Thornbury and Clarksburg, at first on horseback, then with a horse-drawn bus. Earl worked on other people's farms, including his son's, until he bought his own 50 acres in his 60s. He died in 1993 in his 90s.
"Age is only a number as far as I'm concerned. Just don't think about it. It's not going to change anything, believe me," SPENCER said. "And my son-in-law once told me when I questioned him, he said well, he didn't care for the alternative."
Mabel SHAW will be seen at the May Funeral Home in Markdale today from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Her funeral is to be held Friday at 1: 30 p.m. with interment to follow at the Markdale Cemetery.

Another loss hits home
Bob GIROUARD, who lived in Owen Sound in recent years, is the highest ranking Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan so far
By Scott DUNN, Tuesday, November 28, 2006
A pivotal player in Canada's military mission to Afghanistan is one of two victims of a suicide bombing in Kandahar Monday.
Chief Warrant Officer and Regimental Sgt. Major Bob GIROUARD, of the First Royal Canadian Regiment based in Petawawa, lived in Owen Sound for about five years and was stationed at Land Force Central Area Training Centre Meaford before his transfer to Petawawa, and then to Afghanistan. He was 43.
The Regimental Sgt. Major is the senior non-commissioned officer in any unit and plays a critical role in implementing military strategy. He is integral to the planning and execution of all military operations. This officer often has more soldiering experience than the commanding officer, and serves as his right hand.
"This would have been the most senior non-commissioned member who has been killed (in Afghanistan)," said Bob Miller, president of the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute, a Calgary-based think tank advocating a bigger role for Canada in world affairs.
Forty-four Canadian soldiers and one senior diplomat have died in Afghanistan since 2002.
The Department of National Defence has not yet released the names of the soldiers killed Monday. The other soldier killed Monday is reported to be 36-year-old Albert STORM of Fort Erie. Sources, including two family members, confirmed that Chief Warrant Officer STORM was one of those killed. A family member said they would make no comment until Department of National Defense officially releases the names of the two men. The family has asked that its privacy be respected.
GIROUARD was married with three children, two of whom serve in the military. GIROUARD was reportedly from Bathurst, New Brunswick, and was a soldier for 29 years, having joined right out of high school.
According to Canadian Press, GIROUARD and another soldier were riding in a heavily armoured Bison personnel carrier when a bomb was detonated in a car alongside the military vehicle near Kandahar airfield Monday.
A number of Canadian soldiers inside the vehicle were not injured. Pieces of the suicide vehicle were scattered in the area surrounding the attack. The force of the blast killed several camels wandering free along the road. Shortly after the bombing, a Black Hawk helicopter landed in the middle of the road and four North Atlantic Treaty Organization soldiers carried one of the Canadian casualties into the chopper.
During the cleanup, Afghan soldiers stood behind mounted machine guns on the back of trucks, keeping a close eye on anyone approaching the area.
"I heard a powerful bomb explosion," Haji Abdullah, 48, a mechanic in Kandahar city, told Canadian Press. "The atmosphere was very tense. Everybody was running here and there and screaming."

Woodstock councillor 'gave of himself'
By Free Press Staff, Fri., May 5, 2006
Woodstock council paid tribute at its meeting last night to a colleague who died yesterday.
Mayor Michael HARDING praised Jack DUNN for his contributions to the community as a city councillor and member of Local 636 of the Canadian Auto Workers.
DUNN, who was 75, had been ill for several months.
"Jack has given of himself most of his life," HARDING said. "He was never afraid to tackle any project."
First elected to Woodstock council in 1988, DUNN was serving his sixth term.
He was popular with constituents because he made himself accessible and returned their phone calls.
"We will miss hearing his famous telephone sign off: 'Leave a number, Old Jack will be back,' HARDING said.
DUNN was born in Halifax and moved to Woodstock in 1950.
"At the age of 19, Jack followed his father, mother and two sisters to Woodstock… with a train ticket and $17 in his pocket," HARDING said.
DUNN worked at a number of jobs before he was hired at Gardner Denver in 1956. He worked at the factory for 22 years, becoming active in the Canadian Auto Workers.
DUNN served as financial secretary of the union for more than 20 years.
He is survived by his wife Joyce, children Joanne, Paul and Heather and four grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements weren't announced.

TERRY, Pamela Anne (BECKWITH)
Born June 10, 1926, in Vancouver, British Columbia, died peacefully in the early morning, November 25, 2006, in Toronto, Ontario. She was pre-deceased in 2003 by her son, Symon Francis BECKWITH. She will be dearly missed by her children, Robin Jane BECKWITH (Houston, Texas), Jonathan Lewis BECKWITH (Shanghai, China), and Lawrence Matthew BECKWITH (Toronto, Ontario;) her brother, Robin TERRY (Sooke, British Columbia;) her daughter-in-law, Teri DUNN; her son-in-law Tom PHILBROOK; her grandchildren, Fawn ANDERSON, Alison Jane BECKWITH and Juliet Braden BECKWITH; and her great-grandchild, Venice ANDERSON. Pamela was a passionate trailblazer when it came to the theatre. When she first came to Toronto, she was a student of Sterndale BENNETT, director of the Canadian Theatre School. In addition to acting in the early 1950s with the American Forces Theatre Company, touring in Europe with the father of her children and her husband of more than 20 years, John BECKWITH, she acted in Toronto in several plays, with notable appearances as The Maid in Ionesco's The Bald Soprano, and Sonya in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. She then turned to direction, with her early success marked by three plays by Ben Jonson, including Volpone with Timothy Findley as Volpone. She also directed Canadian poet and novelist, Margaret Atwood, when Atwood was a student at University of Toronto. Pamela directed the first Canadian production of Becket's Waiting for Godot in 1957, winning the Dominion Drama Festival's best direction award. The following year, she again won the Dominion Drama Festival award for best direction with a production of James Reaney's first play, The Killdeer. The Canadian poet and playwright, who always referred to her as "my first director," dedicated his play, The Easter Egg, to her. She directed it twice during the 1960s. Her forward looking vision prompted her to direct the first Canadian productions, in the 1970s, of plays by Peter Handke, Vaclav Havel and others. Her natural talent as an actress, dramatic coach, but particularly as a director, was highly respected. With a quick intelligence, immense sensitivity and understanding of nuance in her directing ventures, great command of all the elements of direction - including set construction, lighting, music, blocking, and costume - she also directed Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat, Poulenc's La Voix Humaine, and Reaney and Beckwith's Night Blooming Cereus, which combined musical elements with theatrical understanding. With humor and a sense of delight, Pamela also directed two original children's musicals by Pat Patterson for the Toronto Children's Theatre. A long-time proponent of avant garde theatre, with a strong philosophical bent, Pamela's contribution to the growth of theatre in Toronto is immeasurable. Just this past October, Pamela took charge of an opportunity for the University Alumnae Dramatic Club, by arranging and overseeing its participation in Toronto's first Nuit Blanche, a co-operative and free open-all-night celebration by the city's cultural organizations. Pamela, your brilliance will be missed by all upon whose light it shed. A celebration of her life will be held in Toronto on Thursday, November 30 at 2: 00 p.m. at the Alumnae Theatre (corner Adelaide Street East and Berkeley Street). In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her name to Doctors Without Borders, Care Canada or a small, independent arts organization of your choice.

York student an 'innocent victim'
Shot after picking up her boyfriend
Car crashed into North York house
By John GODDARD and Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporters
Chantel DUNN, shot to death in a North York neighbourhood while picking up her boyfriend after a basketball game, was an "innocent victim," police said last night.
Why the boyfriend might have had shooters waiting for him after the pickup match is still under investigation, Toronto police Det. Wayne FOWLER said.
DUNN, a 19-year-old York University student, went to pick up her 21-year-old boyfriend, not yet named by police, shortly after 11 p.m. on Monday at Northwood Community Centre, located near Jane St. and Sheppard Ave. W.
After she pulled up to the building, he got into the passenger seat. As they left the parking lot, two unidentified suspects in dark clothing approached the car and started firing at it.
"A number of vehicles were leaving at the same time," FOWLER said. "The suspects were lying in wait for the (DUNN) vehicle to exit.
"The vehicle was targeted."
As the shooting continued, DUNN kept driving. Her boyfriend jumped out of the car and started running.
"A number of shots were fired as he was fleeing," FOWLER said. The car then crashed into a house across the street on Clubhouse Court.
Both DUNN and her boyfriend were hit by gunfire. They were taken to Sunnybrook hospital, where she died early yesterday. The official cause of death is to be released after an autopsy is done today.
Her boyfriend was transferred to another area hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, FOWLER said.
DUNN is the city's third homicide victim of the year, the second involving gunfire. There were four homicides at this time last year.
The young woman's family has been contacted and is "devastated," FOWLER said. DUNN was living with family members in Peel Region. Other family members live in Toronto, he said.
Silvana CONFORTI, who lives across the street from the community centre, said she heard a crash and was horrified to see that a Honda Accord had plowed through the side of her two-storey brick house and into her bathroom.
"It was like a bomb went off," she said.
She was even more horrified, she said, to find that inside lay a 19-year-old dead woman.
Her 15-year-old son Daniel had been about to brush his teeth when he heard the sound of gunfire. He looked out the bathroom window and saw a car speeding toward the house.
The car crashed through a fence and some hedges, before smashing into the side of the house.
"The whole wall collapsed and the fender of the car is now sitting on our toilet," CONFORTI said. "The sink is in the middle of my hallway."
CONFORTI's husband Tony had just reported for the night shift as a Canada Post driver when his wife phoned, and he immediately returned home.
"I couldn't believe what I saw," he said.
FOWLER said some witnesses: have come forward -- people from the parking lot and people who had been at the basketball game.
"She is definitely an innocent victim of this gun crime," he said of DUNN.
"The surviving victim, we cannot link him to any incidents that could draw this type of attention to him, but we are still investigating that angle."
Police are still appealing for other possible witnesses: to come forward with information, FOWLER said.
