OSBORNE, Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS)
Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS) OSBORNE passed away on January 1, 2006 in Grey Bruce Health Centre, Markdale, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Jean was born August 29, 1929 to Bert and Emily EDWARDS, who had just immigrated from England to Canada, finally landing in Dundalk. Jean grew up in Dundalk. She was an excellent student and athlete and graduated at a very young age. Then Jean went to work at the Bank of Commerce (C.I.B.C.) in Dundalk.
She met and married her life partner, Dallas OSBORNE, in June 1949, a marriage that lasted over 50 years. Through the years Jean and Dallas raised their four children, Lynda, Steve, Doug and Shelly, while Jean continued to work at the bank. Jean was a kind and caring mother as well as grandmother and then great-grandmother.
Nothing to do with family or at her work was too much for her to handle. She enjoyed the many family get-togethers at the cottage at Wasaga Beach.
On January 31, 1987, Jean officially retired after 32 faithful years at the bank. She had many, many Friends in the community.
Later, Jean and Dallas left Dundalk and moved to Barrie for a few short years, then they both retired to Brewsters Lake, Singhampton. After the passing of Dallas, Jean moved to Markdale. She enjoyed her time there, and met many new Friends.
Through the years Jean and Dallas attended services at Erskine Presbyterian Church, Mount Pleasant Missionary Church, and then later Jean attended as many services as she could at the Eugenia United Church.
Left to mourn Jean are her four children, Lynda (Hans) MUELLER, Steve (Brenda) OSBORNE, Doug (Delores) OSBORNE, and Shelly LAMBERT, ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Also brothers, Jack (Mary) EDWARDS and Peter (Elske) EDWARDS, as well as sisters-in-law Donna WILLIAMS and Marie (Barry) ADAM/ADAMS.
Funeral services were held at the McMillan Jack Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 4.
Patrick HALFERTY, Jean's friend and pastor for some years ably conducted the service that would have pleased Jean very much. Her daughter Lynda played the hymn "Hope" on the piano during the service.
The pallbearers were Chris OSBORNE, Gene MATTHEWS (grand_sons,) Doug OSBORNE, Cameron EDWARDS, Darryl GREEN (nephews,) and Hans MUELLER (son-in-law.) Flowerbearers were grandchildren, interment was held in Dundalk Cemetery following the service. A lovely luncheon was served to family and Friends at the Erskine Presbyterian Church by their ladies group.
The family once again, appreciated everyone's kind words, prayers and support during this difficult time. Mother is and will be truly missed by her family and Friends.

BOYD, Minnie Marian (née SWANTON)
Minnie Marian was born on April 15, 1921 to Emily and William SWANTON who resided on the East Back Line, Markdale. She was the younger sister to her brother George who was five years her senior. The four were a tight knit farming family who grew up with strong values and the hearty Grey county work ethic.
Minnie finished high school and then went off to teacher's college. She began her teaching career in a one room schoolhouse in Ceylon with grades one through eight; quite a challenge for a newly graduated young teacher. When she went to Toronto to teach, she tackled this job with determination and passion and enjoyed the many opportunities it presented.
It was during this time that she met her soul mate for life local Flesherton boy, George BOYD. They were married in July 1944 with the entire Boyd and Swanton family in attendance. George and Minnie had three children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy. Minnie was devoted to her family. Whether as a homemaker to a young family or as the accountant/receptionist at the family business, Boyd Bros. Motors, Minnie excelled. She also made time for many pursuits including sewing, painting and cooking. The family enjoyed great love and support from each other.
Minnie and George had a great enthusiasm for life. They both enjoyed impromptu parties with Friends and family and Minnie was always ready with lots of food and stories to tell. They had many great adventures through the family trips around the world and even day trips in the area. Minnie loved to dance and it was usually George and Minnie who were first up to "cut a rug" on the dance floor. George was the love of her life and the two were inseparable until almost three years ago when George passed away. Although she suffered greatly from heart-break and arthritis in the final years, Minnie never let the pain dampen her positive spirit.
The service celebrating Minnie's life took place on Wednesday, February 15 at the Fawcett Funeral Home in Flesherton. Minnie's daughter-in-law, Kim BOYD composed and delivered a wonderful tribute to Minnie. A second loving tribute was written by her daughter, Wendy and read by Reverend Martin GARNISS. The Boyd family appreciated the beautiful music of David FRIES, the religious message of Reverend Martin GARNISS and the excellent lunch served by the ladies of Flesherton's Saint John's United Church. Thanks are also extended to the pallbearers Don BRODIE, Jack DAVIS, Kevin DAY, Tyler DAY, Bob EDWARDS and Jim WILLIAMS.
Relatives and Friends will remember Minnie's generosity, kind spirit and keen sense of humour. She will be greatly missed by her children, Brenda, Randy and Wendy, her daughter-in-law Kim, her son-in-law Kevin, her six grandchildren, Lindsay, Ferris, Kelsey, Melanie, Tyler and Samantha and her loving relatives and Friends.
The Boyd family give thanks for Minnie's life and are comforted to know that she will once again be with her one true love, George. Minnie's spirit will remain in the family's hearts and minds forever.

Elderly woman dies in blaze
Friends said the Platt's Lane resident was blind and barely mobile.
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter, Sat., February 4, 2006
An elderly woman is dead after a fire ripped through her ground-floor apartment in west London last night.
London police and firefighters wouldn't identify the victim of the blaze at 261 Platt's Lane, but Friends huddled outside said it was Ruby YAHNKE, an elderly woman who was blind and barely mobile.
"The poor lady -- she couldn't see anything and she could hardly walk," said an emotional Dianne EDWARDS, who visited the senior twice a day to help care for her dog.
"She was a wonderful woman. I just saw her today and everything was fine. Now this," EDWARDS said.
The fire, which started shortly after 8: 30 p.m., charred YAHNKE's first-floor apartment and sent smoke billowing out her windows, smashed by firefighters trying to contain the blaze.
Though YAHNKE herself did not escape the fire, her dog, a small Shih Tzu named Molly, was brought out by firefighters and handed to EDWARDS.
"She's okay, just a little black," EDWARDS said of the dog she walked twice a day.
"She's gonna miss her mom."
Dozens of residents of the five-storey building were forced to evacuate because of heavy smoke.
They huddled outside and in a nearby building for nearly two hours as police and firefighters investigated.
"The hallways and stairwells were full of smoke and it smelled really strong," said Ramsey SHUCK, who lives on the third floor.
"Smoke was just billowing out of the first-floor apartment," he said.
Deputy fire Chief Dave KITTERMAN said last night it was unclear how much damage the building sustained in the blaze.
He did say the first-floor apartment where the fire originated received "severe" damage.
KITTERMAN didn't know what sparked the fatal blaze, but neighbours said YAHNKE was a smoker.
"It's just so sad," EDWARDS said. "She's a beautiful person."

Except to wish with all our hearts
That you were here today.

Driver charged in fatality
An Aylmer man was charged after his passenger was killed in a rollover.
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Reporter, Mon., October 16, 2006
For the second time in two days, an area driver has been charged with impaired driving causing death after a fatal collision.
On Saturday night, Elgin Ontario Provincial Police were called to a crash on Pulley Road north of Sparta Line in an isolated part of Central Elgin.
Police said an sport utility vehicle left a gravel road, struck a utility pole and rolled.
The driver was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.
The passenger, Devon SCHMELTER, 20, of Malahide Township died at the scene. Police said he was not wearing a seatbelt.
"The seatbelt USAge… (was) the difference between the driver and the passenger being killed," Ontario Provincial Police Const. Angela Baker said yesterday.
SCHMELTER was bounced around the rolling vehicle and finally pinned underneath.
Philip EDWARDS, 20, of Aylmer is charged with impaired driving causing death.
He is expected to appear in Saint Thomas court today.
The crash is the second over the weekend involving an impaired driving charge.
On Friday night, a car carrying five West Perth teens collided with a car driven by a Kitchener woman.
The woman, Trista GLIEDT, 23, died at the scene.
Baker said in recent months there has not been the high number of fatalities connected to impaired driving in the region.
But, she added, any impaired driving death, considering the concerted efforts to stop people from driving drunk, is "tragic."
Baker said from the Ontario Provincial Police viewpoint, young people have been given information about the dangers of impaired driving "from the police, their parents and the school system from Day 1.
"It's highly disappointing for us to see that education and all the dollars spent and all the efforts have been wasted."
Baker said there is so much more support and education than for previous generations of drivers.

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

Alex TRIMBLE, Royal Canadian Air Force Officer (1920-2006)
Meticulous worker began his career during the Battle of Britain, repairing and maintaining the delicate instruments that crowded the cockpits of his squadron's Hawker Hurricanes
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- Alex TRIMBLE climbed out of the cockpit of a Hawker Hurricane fighter aircraft and wiped his brow. Nearby, a dozen Hurricanes stretched down the airfield, each of them swarmed by Royal Canadian Air Force technicians intent on servicing their aircraft for the next flight.
From the fitters who maintained the engines and the riggers who repaired the airframes, wings and undercarriage, to the men who fixed the radios plus the armourers who cleaned and loaded each aircraft's eight.303-inch machine guns, the technicians knew the pilots of No. 1 (Fighter) Squadron depended on them.
Mr. TRIMBLE had a vital job of his own. Known for his painstaking accuracy, he was an instrument maker, responsible for repairing and maintaining the dozen or so delicate instruments that crowded each Hurricane cockpit.
Speedometer, tachometer, oil-pressure gauge, air-pressure gauge, compass -- every instrument had to be in perfect working order because a pilot's life could depend on it, especially when flying blind in clouds.
The Royal Canadian Air Force regarded servicing extremely seriously. "Before a plane can take off, a chart has to be signed by eight different men, including the five airmen in charge of the main ground jobs, and the flight sergeant," said a newspaper story entitled Ground Men Playing Vital Roles In War. "As a result, accidents from mechanical faults seldom occur and when a pilot sets out on a sweep across northern France he can be reasonably certain that if he doesn't get in the way of enemy guns he'll come safely back to his base."
Despite a lack of formal recognition -- ground crew weren't entitled to a campaign star, like the Aircrew Europe Star awarded after the war to aircrew -- Mr. TRIMBLE enjoyed his job. He knew his pilots as human beings, since he strapped them into their cockpits and wished them good hunting before taking off. Scanning the sky anxiously, Mr. TRIMBLE was there for them when they returned, physically and emotionally drained after combat.
A key member of the only Royal Canadian Air Force squadron to participate in the epic Battle of Britain, fought from July 10 to October 31, 1940, Mr. TRIMBLE watched history being made in the skies over Britain that hot summer of perfect weather as the German Luftwaffe tried to destroy the Royal Air Force as a prelude to invasion. Over all, 105 Canadian pilots flew in the Battle of Britain, 77 with the Royal Air Force and 28 with No. 1 Squadron.
Organized in 1937 at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Trenton, Ontario, No. 1 Squadron and its Hurricanes were mobilized on September 10, 1939, the day Canada declared war against Germany. In May, 1940, No. 1 absorbed No. 115 (Fighter) Squadron and moved to Britain.
On August 26, No. 1 Squadron engaged the Luftwaffe for the first time when 10 Hurricanes scrambled against a force of 25 to 30 bombers. Flight Lieutenant G.R. McGREGOR destroyed a Dornier Do. 215 and Flying Officer T.B. LITTLE was awarded a bomber probably destroyed. Flying Officer R.L. EDWARDS was killed.
It had been quite a day for Squadron Leader Ernie McNAB and his pilots. His unit was the first Royal Canadian Air Force squadron to score victories, suffer combat casualties and win gallantry awards. On March 1, 1941, No. 1 was renumbered as 401 Squadron after the Royal Canadian Air Force was awarded the 400-block series of numbers.
For Mr. TRIMBLE and his comrades, life during the Battle of Britain was hectic. Described as unsung heroes for their dedication, ground crew worked long hours -- often starting before dawn and finishing after midnight -- but the bright lights of London also beckoned, with its "tonight we live for tomorrow we may die" atmosphere.
In 1941, Mr. TRIMBLE was at a party when he spied a pretty girl. Sparks ignited and he asked Isobel KIRKPATRICK to dance. That was the beginning of a whirlwind romance that ended in marriage a year later, on March 17, 1941.
"It must have been the uniform. We danced, we dated, he got posted then came back. It was war time and we didn't know what tomorrow would bring," said Mrs. TRIMBLE. "It was love at first sight. He was a handsome lad, had a great sense of humour, a wonderful personality."
Alex TRIMBLE joined the Royal Canadian Air Force the day after Canada declared war on Nazi Germany on September 10, 1939. After training in Ottawa, he was sent to No. 115 (Fighter) Squadron. On August 25, 1941, he was posted to the newly formed 408 Squadron. A month later, he was promoted to sergeant, just 24 months after first enlisting. Mr. TRIMBLE spent the next two years in charge of 408's instrument section. Formed as the second Royal Canadian Air Force bomber squadron overseas, 408 attacked targets all over Europe with its Hampden and Halifax bombers.
After the war, Mr. TRIMBLE remained in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He served from 1948 to 1956 with 412 (Transport) Squadron, based at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Uplands, in Ottawa, in command of the instrument and electrical sections. Then, as now, 412 is known as the "V.I.P. squadron," flying prime ministers, governors-general and the royal family. It was the golden era of the Royal Canadian Air Force, which soon reached 52,000 men and women and 2,000 aircraft.
In 1956, Mr. TRIMBLE became an officer, specializing in aeronautical engineering. He and his family spent three years in France before going to air force headquarters in 1959. He retired in 1968 as a captain and bought a 100-acre farm in Lanark County, Ontario, in 1973.
Gail PROUDE of Ottawa remembers family life with her father during the 1950s with affection. "He went to work every day and every night the family sat down for supper together. Afterwards, Ann and I did the dishes and Mom and Dad would retire to the living room and read the paper. Families established their parameters and kids followed the rules, for the most part. It was a secure time."
Known as an organized, meticulous man, Mr. TRIMBLE loved repairing clocks and watches. "[It] became his hobby when we kids were all very young. He used to tell us that whatever money he made&hellip he used it to put gas in the car," said Mrs. PROUDE. He continued his repair work for a jewellery store in Perth, Ontario, until Alexander George TRIMBLE was born on September 3, 1920, in Ottawa. He died of heart disease on April 11, in Perth, Ontario He was 85. He is survived by his wife, Isobel, his son Gordon, his daughters Gail and Ann, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

PITHER, William Garth (March 6, 1921-September 8, 2006)
A pioneer in the Cable television industry, Garth passed away peacefully on September 8, 2006 in Vancouver. Predeceased by his adoring wife Dorothy, he is survived by sons Ron, Barry, and Gordon; grand_sons Colin and Lane; daughter-in-law Deborah BROADLEY; sister Beth (Charles;) nephew Gerry EDWARDS, and nieces Linda MASON, Sharon FARNETTI, and Heather PICCO. Garth's 'family' was bigger than most, as his reach, influence, and genuine interest always extended in the most caring of ways beyond the conventional his sense of community and contribution were hallmarks of his life. Garth's watchwords were 'Perseverance', 'Why not?', and 'Never dismiss anyone or anything'. Born in Winnipeg and growing up in Saskatchewan and Vancouver, Garth began an electrical apprenticeship at RCA in Toronto during 1938. In 1940 he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was seconded to the Royal Air Force where his technical brilliance was applied to the then secret U.K.-based radar initiative. Returning to Canada in 1945 he rejoined RCA and married Dorothy LOVELL in 1946. A chance television repair job for Syd WELSH lead to a three way partnership with Bud SHEPARD in the early fifties pioneering Cable television in Canada. His technical knowledge and skills were employed in wiring the mountain communities of British Columbia, including antenna sites surveyed on foot, by packhorse, boat, jeep, helicopter, and snowmobile. By the 1960s, this visionary trio, and others too many to mention, brought Cable television to the major urban centres of Canada and around the world including the U.S.A., Ireland, and the United Kingdom, garnering the respect of governments and business partners such as CBS. In 1971 the Welsh companies formed Premier Cablevision Limited which was eventually purchased by Rogers Cable of Toronto. Garth's 'retirement' in 1981 was hardly ever that(!) as he offered his skills, enthusiasm, and insight to support Rick Hansen's dream to wheel around the world and such organizations as the British Columbia and Canadian Paraplegic Associations, Vancouver Rotary and finally the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club. Golf both in Vancouver and Palm Springs was always in the 'fore'. Always busy, always involved, always offering, always there… Garth was always 'doing something' and led by example to create and fix things rather than just offer words. A private Celebration of Garth's life will be held amongst his dear family and Friends. The family thanks the volunteers and members of the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club and other stroke support services in Vancouver for enabling Garth to maintain his independence since his wn stroke in 1996. Moreover, we give honourable mention to the staff at Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia Health Sciences and Providence Health Care, in particular staff at the Brock Fahrni facility for the wonderful care and attention Garth received over the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to one of Garth's proudest and greatest achievements, the British Columbia Paraplegic Foundation (780…S.W. Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia V6P 5Y7) of which he was a founding visionary over 30 years ago.

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.

Officer shot dead, 2 teens in custody
By Peter EDWARDS in Windsor Nicolaas VAN RIJN in Toronto with files from Scott ROBERTS, Camille ROSS and Canadian Press, Page A1
A Windsor police officer who "couldn't wait to go to work" was shot dead yesterday afternoon while coming to the aid of a harassed family operating a Mac's Milk convenience store in a residential section of the border city.
Two 18-year-old male suspects are in custody and a gun has been seized, Windsor police Insp. Greg RENAUD told a news conference last night.
Const. John ATKINSON, 37, the father of two young children, is believed to be the first officer in the more than 120-year history of the Windsor force to be killed on duty, said Windsor police Chief Glenn STANNARD, who noted three other officers have died in car accidents.
As word of the 14-year police veteran's death rippled across the border city, the shock was palpable.
"Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual, a committed individual who put service above self," said Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS.
Police said the incident, at 2: 05 p.m. in a parking lot near Seminole St. and Pillette Rd., in a residential neighbourhood about half a dozen blocks south of the Detroit River, began when ATKINSON approached two men.
According to local residents, ATKINSON, who lived in the neighbourhood, was responding to a call for help from the Middle Eastern family who operated the milk store. They'd complained of being harassed by "white kids," neighbours said; when they told ATKINSON about it he suggested they call him if it happened again.
They did, and he responded quickly to confront the two men, neighbours said, producing his badge and identification. That's when one of the two men allegedly pulled a gun and shot him.
STANNARD said ATKINSON "approached these individuals and during this time a firearm was produced and Const. ATKINSON was shot. Const. ATKINSON was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire."
"The two suspects," STANNARD added, "were seen fleeing the area on foot after the shooting, leaving the officer lying on the sidewalk. And it is possible, when the suspects were fleeing, some items were discarded, such as clothing."
Two 18-year-old Windsor men -- uninjured -- were arrested shortly afterwards during a massive police search, and a firearm was recovered, but police won't say if the weapon was related to the shooting.
Investigators also wouldn't say how many times the officer, assigned to the provincial anti-terrorism section, was hit. But local residents said ATKINSON was hit at least twice, once in the throat and chest.
Dennis ROCHON was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots. Rushing outside, he found ATKINSON on the pavement.
"There was no movement," ROCHON said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
Another man, identified only as Terry, said he saw ATKINSON struggling, stumbling three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up, and he fell again," Terry said.
Lloyd MENARD, in the store at the time, thought he was hearing things when the gunfire broke out.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
After the two suspects were taken into custody, Special Weapons and Tactics teams scoured the neighbourhood for a possible third participant in the shooting, but police later said there may only have been the two suspects.
ATKINSON, a senior constable who started with the force as a cadet, was known as a "good cop," STANNARD said.
The chief, FRANCIS, a chaplain and several of ATKINSON's on-the-force Friends visited the slain officer's wife, Shelley, and his children yesterday afternoon in an effort to console the family. ATKINSON's daughter Nicole turned 7 this week; his son Mitchell is 9.
During the family visit, STANNARD said, tears flowed freely.
"You do what your heart leads you with," STANNARD told reporters last night when asked about the visit.
"It's a tragic thing, and I think the best I can do is say you share tears, and you share hugs."
STANNARD said he and the Windsor police honour guard will be in Toronto, as planned, for the annual memorial ceremony of remembrance at the Ontario Police Memorial tomorrow at 10: 45 a.m. The memorial, at Grosvenor St. and Queen's Park Circle E., commemorates Ontario police officers slain on duty.
"Our honour guard and I will be attending… obviously with heavy hearts," the chief said.

Barrie mom faced custody hearing
Girls, 1 and 3, found dead at home
Family court appearance set for today
By Jim WILKES and Jessica LEEDER, Staff Reporters with files from Peter EDWARDS
Barrie -- Friends say a woman charged with killing her two young daughters feared she was about to lose them in a bitter custody battle with her estranged husband.
The latest chapter in the custody dispute was to have played out in family court today, but yesterday's slayings of Sophia CAMPIONE, 3, and her year-old sister Serena have brought that hearing to a tragic end.
Frances Elaine CAMPIONE, 31, will instead face two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of the blond-haired tots who one friend described as "perfect little angels."
Neighbours in the 13-storey apartment building on Coulter Street, a stone's thrown from Bayfield St. and Highway 400 in Barrie's north end, were stunned by news that police had found the children dead when they answered an emergency call shortly after 6 a.m. yesterday.
Insp. Jim FARRELL said CAMPIONE had placed a 911 call reporting "two dead children inside an apartment."
As officers stood watch over the slain youngsters' bodies, CAMPIONE was taken to Royal Victoria Hospital for a medical examination and then moved to police headquarters for questioning.
Police were awaiting the results of autopsies today to learn how the children were killed.
"It's a sad day for the city of Barrie," FARRELL said.
CAMPIONE had moved to the apartment, behind the huge Bayfield Mall, a few months ago after separating from her husband, Leo, who was living with his parents in Woodbridge.
Neighbours said Children's Aid Society workers had visited her twice in recent weeks as she prepared for today's custody hearing.
Some recalled seeing the little girls running in the hallways of the building or holding on to their mother in the elevators.
"They were the sweetest little girls that you've ever seen in your life -- tiny, petite and well-behaved," said neighbour Cathie MORGAN, 50. "The mother always took such good care of them. They were always dressed in princess dresses."
MORGAN said she was struggling to understand how anyone could take two precious, innocent lives.
CAMPIONE was a "woman who was tormented," said friend Sharon LYNN, who wiped tears from red-rimmed eyes as she placed flowers outside the building late yesterday afternoon.
LYNN said CAMPIONE was struggling to cope with a life that was "so bad.
"That mother needs a hug," she said. "She needs to know that people love her."
John KERR said he last saw the mother and daughters in an elevator a day earlier.
"She's not a happy woman," said KERR, 37. "I've never ever seen that woman smile.
"She was not a happy person at all."
A resident of the Woodbridge neighbourhood where Leo CAMPIONE grew up said the girls' mother went into a deep depression after the birth of her second child last year.
She said the mother dropped the children off at her in-laws, saying she couldn't deal with them.
At one point, she didn't even want to see the kids, so the grandmother took them in, the neighbour said.
One neighbour on the Woodbridge street where the dead girl's grandparents live collapsed when she heard the news of the slayings.
Other neighbours described the girls' father as a hard-working, soft-spoken construction worker who loved to spend time with his children.
"He loved his kids," said Elisa RIZZO, a grandmother who watched Leo CAMPIONE grow up on the street, fall in love, then suffer through marriage break-up.
"He wanted to work things out for the kids, and he loved his wife too," said RIZZO.
Family members guarded the grandparents' door from the media as red-eyed neighbours dropped in to pay their respects.
Neighbours said the girls' grandparents loved to walk the girls through the neighbourhood where many families have lived for a quarter-century.
"They would walk them every day," one said.
"They loved to take them to the park and to church," said another.
The building where the slayings took place is operated by the Barrie Municipal Non-Profit Housing Corporation, which provides geared-to-income and full-market-rate units.
Ann HARVEY, the corporation's community relations manager, said she had met the family and described the two dead girls as "very sweet."
"The whole family was very wonderful -- gentle, sweet people," she said. "They were nice young children.
"There's just sadness, just overwhelming sadness."
Barrie had just two homicides in 2005.
"Barrie doesn't see too many homicides in a year," said Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND. "To make it two children, it touches the hearts of everybody.
"It's going to take some time for people to try to consume why this occurred," he said. "Hopefully we'll have some answers for the public in time to come.
"There's still a lot of legwork that has to be done by investigators."
GOODBRAND said he was moved as he watched the youngsters' bodies removed from the building.
"It chokes me up," he said. "I have two children about the same ages.
"I can't imagine anything like this. It would be my worst nightmare."
