Michel CHEVALIER, Teacher, Soldier And Businessman (1924-2006)
Quebecker of high-born French origins ended up a professor but had been a D-Day artilleryman and a political hopeful
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Michel CHEVALIER did so many different things in life, he is almost impossible to pigeonhole. He ended as a professor, earning a PhD in his 40s after having earlier quit university. Along the way, he was a soldier, a businessman and a somewhat prescient politician.
The CHEVALIER family was an oddity in Quebec. They came from France in the 19th century, not the 17th. Michel CHEVALIER's grandfather arrived in Montreal to found a branch of the French financial institution Credit Foncier. Michel's parents distrusted the influence of the Catholic Church in 1920s Quebec, so they sent their children to English-language private schools.
His mother, Alice GEOFFRION, was the daughter of a prominent Montreal lawyer. One ancestor on that side of the family was Sir Antoine DORION, a prominent player in Quebec politics who was briefly joint premier of the united province of Canada in August of 1858. In the next decade, he opposed Confederation but eventually served in a Liberal cabinet and became chief justice of Quebec.
When the Second World War began, Michel CHEVALIER was scarcely 15 but keen to get into the thick of the fighting. Many young men longed to be officers so, a little more than a year later, he faked his age and qualified for officer training. He graduated a year later and was eager to head overseas as soon as possible but ran into a colonel who had known his father during the First World War.
"You must be Jacques," said the colonel, referring to his older brother. When the colonel discovered Michel was only 17, he put a stop to him going overseas.
Michel then resigned his commission and re-enlisted as a private soldier. He was sent overseas, trained in England and landed with the 13th Canadian Field Regiment, Royal Canadian artillery, on D-Day, June 6, 1944. He was wounded twice during fighting in Europe.
After the war, Mr. CHEVALIER enrolled at McGill University but felt too restless for student life and lasted about a month. It was during this time that he first met his future wife, Jean MacGREGOR. He proposed marriage after their first meeting. She turned him down, and he took off on a long trip through Africa and Latin America. He came home three years later to find she had changed her mind. For a while, he worked at Alcan in the public-relations department, where he objected to the lack of French-speaking smelter managers.
"He pushed so hard, he was fired from Alcan," long-time friend High Pawson recalled. "He was a forward thinker and called the shots on what was going to happen in Quebec long before it happened."
It was around then that Mr. CHEVALIER wrote a rather prescient letter to a Tory member of Parliament, J.M. Macdonnell, saying the Progressive Conservatives needed to win support in Quebec or the country faced the prospect of unending Liberal rule. In his letter of 1950, he used the old-fashioned term Canadien to describe Quebeckers. "It is true that the Canadien vote can, in rare instances, be stampeded away from the Liberals, but there is no denying that this kind of support scatters just as fast as it is gathered," Mr. CHEVALIER wrote, adding that the country needed a strong second party.
Later, he started his own company, a business that organized conferences. It was a success, and his brother joined him as a partner in Chevalier Associates. They worked out of the elegant Prince of Wales Terrace on Sherbrooke Street (it was later torn down).
In the mid-1960s, Mr. CHEVALIER decided to return to school. He earned a master's degree and then a doctorate in city planning at the University of Pennsylvania. He returned home to be a professor at the Université de Montreal in the Institute d'urbanisme. At the same time, he joined the faculty at Toronto's York University to teach environmental studies.
"Michel was very focused on ideas and always thinking ahead," said Fred Carden, one of Mr. CHEVALIER's doctoral students at the Université de Montreal. "For example, he was talking about horizontal management 10 to 15 years before it became a hot topic in government circles."
At the same time, Mr. CHEVALIER became involved in municipal politics. He worked with the Montreal Citizens Movement, a group that challenged Jean Drapeau's one-man rule at City Hall, with good effect. But while they got some new councillors elected, their number was insufficient to temper the Montreal mayor's ego and power. Mr. Drapeau went ahead with the 1976 Olympic Games, which the city and province are still paying off.
On the city level, Mr. CHEVALIER mostly worked behind the scenes but did have one foray into organized politics. In 1972, he ran for the Progressive Conservatives in Argenteuil-Deux-Montagnes, the federal riding near the confluence of the Ottawa and St. Lawrence where his family had long owned a farm. He didn't stand much of chance; his opponent was Francis Fox, a future minister in Pierre Trudeau's cabinet, and the Liberals swept Quebec to win 56 of 75 seats. He had fallen victim to the very circumstances he had predicted regarding Liberal hegemony in Quebec.
Much of Mr. CHEVALIER's childhood and adult life were spent at a family farm at Oka, Quebec After the troubles at Oka, the family sold most of the property. Mr. CHEVALIER left the Université de Montreal in 1988 but stayed on at York until his retirement in 1992.
Michel Philippe CHEVALIER was born in Montreal on July 1, 1924. He died in Toronto on January 15, 2006, after a long stay in hospital. He is survived by his wife, Jean, and four children. He was predeceased by a daughter in 1991.

'Real team player' lived dream as officer
Ken DEANE is recalled as a 'top, top cop,' despite his public persona.
By Joe MATYAS and April KEMICK, Free Press Reporters, Mon., February Long before Ken DEANE became infamous as the Ontario Provincial Police sniper who fatally shot Dudley GEORGE at Ipperwash, he was a London teen who wanted to be a police officer.
He was a bright student and energetic athlete who emerged as a leader in his teens, high school friend Tim HUFF once told The Free Press.
DEANE was in Grade 12 at South secondary school when he decided he wanted to get into law enforcement, said HUFF, adding he pounded a beat for the London police force in the 1980s after taking law and security at Fanshawe College.
A few years later, DEANE applied to the Ontario Provincial Police tactics and rescue unit and was accepted, eventually becoming part of an explosives disposal team.
But for people like HUFF, DEANE was a guy who remained in touch with old Friends.
There were annual weekends with the guys in cottage country, where DEANE would be a highlight with stories about police work.
Family and Friends will miss him deeply, brother-in-law Grant TEEPLE of Aylmer said yesterday in reaction to DEANE's sudden death in a highway crash on Saturday.
DEANE's death was a shock, he said, adding family and Friends had a chance to enjoy his company at a gathering "up north" a few days ago.
DEANE wasn't the guy portrayed in the media, TEEPLE said. TEEPLE wouldn't say what DEANE did after he left the Ontario Provincial Police.
DEANE's public persona is connected to the shooting of GEORGE at Ipperwash on September 6, 1995, his subsequent court conviction for criminal negligence causing death in 1997 and his dismissal from the Ontario Provincial Police for discreditable police conduct in 2002.
London lawyer Norm PEEL, who knew DEANE for years before representing him in his criminal trial, said yesterday he was a model police officer whose reputation was wrongly tarnished.
"I still hold my strongest view that he was just a top, top cop," PEEL said. "I have nothing but absolute respect for him. Always will."
DEANE had a reputation among other officers for being a "real team player," PEEL said. "His whole story of his life was about helping people. He had a model background."
During his trial, DEANE testified that he saw muzzle flashes the light of gunfire -- come from some bushes during a confusing skirmish.
He said he shot GEORGE after he stepped out of the bushes with a gun.
In convicting DEANE on April 27, 1997, Judge Hugh FRASER rejected his testimony and those of other police officers as fabricated.
The verdict surprised members of the GEORGE family.
But their feelings that justice had been done were dashed on July 3, 1997, when FRASER gave DEANE a conditional sentence of two years less a day with 180 hours of community service.
Cries of "murderer, murderer" filled the courtroom after the sentence as members of the GEORGE family wept.

Teen driver killed
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Fri., March 31, 2006
A single-car rollover killed a teenage driver and sent four passengers, including a five-year-old boy, to hospital last night, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said.
Speed led to the crash, which happened about 8 p.m. in Lambton Shores, police said. The youngster was the only person wearing a seat belt, which police said explains the injuries suffered by the adults.
Rebecca PARSONS, 18, of Lambton Shores, was the driver. She died of her injuries.
The adult passengers -- Jenny PARKER, 28, Laura PARKER, 25, and Paul MADON, 28 -- remain in hospital today, Const. Luke GEORGE said. The young boy, Mason HODGKIN, has already been released.
“Speed is a factor in this collision,” GEORGE said. “A lack of seat-belt use is another factor in relation to the injuries.&rdquo

Key Ipperwash witness killed in highway crash
By Kate HARRIES, Page A2
One of the most eagerly anticipated witnesses: at the Ipperwash inquiry -- Ken DEANE, the police sergeant who shot aboriginal activist Dudley GEORGE -- has been killed in a traffic accident.
Mr. DEANE died early Saturday afternoon in a winter storm pile-up on Highway 401 near Prescott, in Eastern Ontario. A passenger, a 38-year-old man from Albuquerque, N.M., was extricated by the local fire department and was in stable condition at Brockville General Hospital.
Mr. DEANE, 45, of Sudbury, was declared dead at the scene after his Ford Explorer was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer unit at around 1: 15. News of his death came as a shock to participants at the Ipperwash inquiry, where Mr. DEANE's testimony in the next few weeks was eagerly anticipated.
"Dudley's family and I were stunned by the news," said lawyer Murray KLIPPENSTEIN, who acts for the George estate.
Then a sergeant, Mr. DEANE was one of a group of Ontario Provincial Police tactical rescue unit snipers who provided cover when the riot squad was deployed against a group of unarmed aboriginals who had occupied Ipperwash Provincial Park. Mr. GEORGE was shot in the ensuing confrontation on the night of September 6, 1995.
Mr. DEANE testified at his trial in 1997 that he saw muzzle flashes, and then a man with a gun who took aim at police. But an officer who was standing near him testified that he saw no flashes and the man who was shot was holding a stick.
In finding Mr. DEANE guilty, Mr. Justice Hugh FRASER rejected the notion that Mr. DEANE had an "honest but mistaken belief" and found that Mr. GEORGE was unarmed 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."
Mr. DEANE was convicted of criminal negligence causing death and sentenced to serve two years less a day in the community, as well as 180 days of community service and no house arrest. He unsuccessfully appealed the conviction to the Supreme Court of Canada. He was ordered to resign from the force in January, 2002, after pleading guilty four months earlier to a charge of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act.
Mr. KLIPPENSTEIN said it's not clear what Mr. DEANE's answers would have been at the inquiry. "The evidence that the inquiry has brought out has changed the picture dramatically… it's extremely questionable that the tactical rescue unit team should have been at the park at all."
But the lawyer said that the loss of Mr. DEANE's evidence will not affect the inquiry's ability to get at the truth of what happened.
Commission counsel Susan VELLA agreed. The inquiry will still have the benefit of the sworn evidence Mr. DEANE gave at the criminal trial, she said yesterday.
Mr. DEANE, who was married with no children, is the third officer involved in the Ipperwash standoff to have been killed in a motor vehicle accident.
Inspector Bill LINTON, who was the incident commander on the night police marched on the park, died in a car crash in 2000. Sergeant Margaret EVE, who attempted to negotiate with the occupiers, died on duty in 2000 on Highway 401, hit by a bank-robbery suspect.

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.

Crash claims life of young woman
Girl, 2, suffers minor injuries from collision near Bradford
Police seek pickup truck driver for more clues in accident
By Tim LAI, Staff Reporter
The crash was so loud Mike GEORGIEVSKI heard the bang a hundred metres away, over the noise from his machinery on a busy stretch of Highway 11, south of Bradford.
From there, he ran out in the rain and saw a grey Nissan Sentra that had its passenger and front side crumpled like an accordion.
With two other men yesterday morning, GEORGIEVSKI spotted a small child, still in her child seat, crying in the back on the passenger side.
She had a bit of blood splattered on her face, but no visible cuts.
Using a box cutter, one man cut the straps of the child seat, freed the 2-year-old and handed her off to a woman who wrapped the child up in a blanket. "After we picked her up, she stopped crying," said GEORGIEVSKI.
He said he believes the blood on the child came from the 20-year-old driver of the car who had ended up in the back seat due to the impact of the collision. "I could see a lot of blood from her nose and she wasn't moving. There was no reaction, there was no pulse when we checked her," said GEORGIEVSKI.
"Her head went under the child seat."
The driver was taken to Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket where she died around 11 a.m. of her injuries.
The child suffered minor injuries.
According to police, at about 10: 30 a.m. yesterday, the southbound Sentra was driving down Highway 11 when a grey pickup truck pulled out of a gas station onto the road.
To avoid hitting the truck, the Sentra swerved, lost control, and was hit by a northbound Sealtest cube van.
The driver of the van was not injured in the collision.
Police are seeking the driver of the pickup truck who may help in the investigation.
He is described as a white male between 40- and 50-years-old.
Parts of the Sentra were strewn as far as 15 metres away from the car on the highway and adjacent ditch where the cube van had ended up.
Investigators shut down the stretch of highway for several hours as they tried to piece together the collision.
Those who work and live in the area say the road is notorious for speeders, adding that police often set up radar traps around the location of where the woman crashed.
"Everybody flies down this road," said a woman who didn't want to be identified. She said the child was cared for by another woman once she was taken out of the car.
"She was asking for her mom," the woman said.
"That lady was amazing. How she held it together, I have no idea."
The impact of the collision caused a slight tremor in the area..
"I was sitting on my bed and all of a sudden, boom," said Deborah TOBIN, 45, who lives above GEORGIEVSKI's Four Star Cups Machinery Ltd. shop. "It shook my apartment."
A man who said he was the brother of the driver who was killed identified her as Crystal ORGAN.
