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.

Bob YUILL, 82: Frugal councillor had a fun side
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Bob YUILL, long-time municipal councillor and sometime mischievous prankster, has died of heart failure at 82.
First elected in 1964, YUILL served on what was then the North York council and later on Metro council in an uninterrupted 24-year political career lasting until 1988.
Afterward, he served as chairman of the North York Parking Authority until retiring in 1993.
He died Wed., May 17, of heart failure at Georgian Manor in Penetanguishene. His funeral took place yesterday in Elmvale, near southern Georgian Bay.
"He loved politics, he loved the public," his youngest son Don said by phone on the weekend from Elmvale. "And he always considered that when you are the governor of the people's money you must be frugal with it, you must spend it wisely."
Tight money management was a theme throughout YUILL's career. At one Metro council budget debate, he donned a sailor's cap and said the municipality was spending tax dollars like drunken sailors. In his private life, he could be a prankster.
"When (former North York and later Toronto mayor) Mel LASTMAN bought his mansion on The Bridal Path, he threw a house-warming party," said Don YUILL, who served three terms on council after his father left politics.
"My dad brought over a live duck and threw it into the swimming pool. The thing crapped all over the place. They had to empty the pool out."
One 1984 Toronto Star photo shows Bob YUILL standing in the snow, bare-chested in a grass skirt with a pineapple in each hand, two days after Christmas, to promote a blood donor clinic.
"He was a wonderful, fun-loving man," former council office secretary Lynn THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said by phone yesterday from the funeral reception.
"You never knew what he was going to wear. He would dress up in costumes -- a crazy apron, a crazy hat, just something different to brighten the day."
Robert Frederick Murray YUILL was born in Toronto in 1924. He learned frugality growing up during the Depression, his son said. YUILL served in the reserve forces during World War 2 and put himself through the University of Toronto, graduating in 1948 with a commerce degree.
As a businessman, he became successful as the creator of a business forms company that he ran for 25 years.
He leaves wife Dorothy, children Glen, Debra and Don, and four grandchildren.

Doug FORD, the rags-to-riches entrepreneur and member for Etobicoke-Humber in the first Mike Harris government, has died of colon cancer at 73.
Mr. FORD was elected to the Ontario legislature in 1995 and served one term, until 1999, as a backbencher and member of the standing committee on finance and economic affairs.
He grew up "rough and tumble on the Danforth," in the words of his son Rob FORD, a sitting Toronto councillor.
"He was a baby out of 10 kids," Rob said yesterday. "He never had a father, just a mother. He never met his father."
With little money in the large family, the senior Mr. FORD left school after Grade 3 and for a time continued to struggle, even as an adult.
"Until the business took off, we were poor," his son said.
Doug FORD was also an avid athlete. He played guard for the East York Argos, and, in 1954, he attempted unsuccessfully to swim Lake Ontario alongside Marilyn BELL, who famously completed the first crossing.
"He never got across but he sure made a good attempt," Rob FORD said.
In 1962, he founded a company now known as Deco Labels and Tags, developing the firm into a multi-million-dollar concern with more than 100 employees and manufacturing facilities in Toronto and Chicago.
In 1995, during his election campaign, he said he had "run a company for 34 years, and we don't owe a cent and have never taken a dime in government grants.
"I believe my expertise can be useful to remedy (the province's) financial situation," he said.
Mr. FORD was an active member of the Rotary Club for 38 years. He was a long-time board member of the Etobicoke General Hospital and once raised $1.5 million for the hospital's first Computed Tomography scan machine.
He also volunteered for the Salvation Army Red Shield Campaign and Big Brothers.
"As a father, he was my best friend," said his city councillor son. "He taught me the value of a dollar. and hellip; He listened to everyone's perspective and their different views."
Mr. FORD was diagnosed on July 1, Canada Day, and died Friday, September 22, with his family at his side. He leaves his wife, Diane, daughter, Kathy, and sons, Randy, Doug Jr. and Rob, three daughters-in-law and eight grandchildren.
Visitation is tomorrow and Thursday at Newediuk Funeral Home, 2104 Kipling Ave., between 2 and 4, and 6 and 9 p.m. A funeral service is to be held at 1 p.m. Friday at the Westway United Church, 8 Templar Dr.

Timber Chief Executive Officer survived Holocaust
Hungarian, who was saved by a Swedish diplomat, died at 105
His son Steven called him a 'man of extraordinary courage and caring'
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Lewis FRIEDLICH, a Hungarian timber executive who survived Nazi persecution with help from Raul Wallenberg, has died in Toronto at the age of 105.
He leaves his wife of nearly 80 years, Aurelia.
"He was a man of extraordinary courage and caring," his elder son, Steven, said yesterday.
FRIEDLICH was born in Budapest on December 13, 1900. Starting as an office boy in 1918, he worked his way up in the timber business, becoming chief executive officer of a Swiss-Hungarian timber company, Nasic Corp. It was the largest lumber firm in Central Europe at the time, with sawmills in several countries.
In 1927, he met his wife on a Danube River excursion boat out of Vienna.
"It was a long boat ride," his son said. "There was a group of girls. One caught his eye. By the time he got to Budapest, he decided this is the girl he's going to marry." Soon after, he did.
The couple had two sons, Steven and Tom.
All was going well until the outbreak of World War 2. When Germany invaded Hungary in 1944, FRIEDLICH was expelled to a forced labour camp.
He was allowed to return to the company for a period because his skills were needed for the war effort. But he was again sent into forced labour, this time with Steven.
"We were taken to the front line to dig trenches to stop the advance of the Russian army," Steven recalled. "They assigned each of us a portion of the trench that we had to dig that day. Anybody who did not dig his portion was shot. To my father, it was more important to look after me than himself."
One day, Swedish diplomat Raul Wallenberg -- later to become known as the saviour of tens of thousands of Jews threatened by Nazi genocide -- arrived at the trenches with a Hungarian officer. All prisoners with a Swedish passport were asked to step forward.
Because of his connections at the Swiss-Hungarian firm, FRIEDLICH had acquired Swedish papers, and he and his son accompanied Wallenberg back to Budapest.
The whole family managed to survive the war, but Stalinist persecution followed. One night in 1949, FRIEDLICH, his wife and younger son escaped the capital and walked across the border into Austria.
By then, his son Steven had immigrated to Canada. He had been studying in Switzerland and had come to Toronto at the urging of a classmate and fellow refugee, Peter MUNK, who went on to found one of the world's largest mining companies, Barrick Gold.
The other FRIEDLICH members followed in 1950. On his arrival at the age of 49, the patriarch and former executive who had run sawmills throughout Central Europe, took a job at Loblaws, carrying grocery bags to people's cars.
Later, he found his way back into the lumber business and eventually bought Grandor Lumber Inc., the retail lumber firm. He sold the company in 1978.
Both sons graduated from the University of Toronto, Steven in engineering, Tom in medicine.
"He was not a rich man," Steven said of his father. "He kept working his way up. His first priority was education (for his sons)."
Lewis FRIEDLICH died Monday in his sleep. Aurelia turned 99 last month. His sister Sara, who lives in Israel, is 104.

Slain hockey player 'had class'
Former Vermont teammates turn out to honour 25-year-old killed by blow to the head
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
A tender story about Michael SERBA's sense of sportsmanship started the rustle of tissues at his funeral yesterday.
Father Andrew FIGOL delivered a eulogy for the 25-year-old former hockey star and scholar, who died last week after being smashed in the head after leaving a Bloor West Village bar.
The tribute came from several sources, the priest said, including a message from a young Vermont father.
"This guy had class," said the priest, quoting the unnamed father, who recalled a critical hockey match last season when SERBA was captain of the Norwich University Cadets in rural Vermont.
"Prior to the game," the story went, "my son was sitting in a tunnel area of the arena. He was wearing a Middlebury jersey. He was obviously a Middlebury fan."
Norwich and Middlebury were arch-rivals.
SERBA, not yet in uniform, started chatting with the boy sitting alone and spent 20 minutes talking with him about hockey.
"When the teams came on the ice, I noticed Norwich player No. 20 tap my son on the shoulder with his stick," the father recalled it was the first time the boy realized that he had been talking to a rival player.
"Norwich won," the father also recalled.
"As the team came off the ice, my son gave No. 20 the thumbs-up."
Nearly 500 mourners crowded into St. Demetrius Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic Church for the two-hour service, in the Eglinton St. and Royal York Rd. area of Etobicoke.
That included two busloads of hockey players, fans and Friends attending from Norwich U, about a three-hour drive south of Montreal.
Two in particular stood out.
They were wearing both the home and away versions of Norwich team jersey No. 20, crimson and gold, with a big C on the upper left chest.
"Why did this happen?" said FIGOL, lamenting the senselessness of the death. "Why him? Why did he have to go in the way that he did?
"All the knowledge in the world cannot explain why."
SERBA, 25, grew up in Toronto and attended St. Demetrius before leaving for Norwich on a hockey scholarship.
After four years, he left the team this season, when his eligibility ran out, to pursue an M.B.A. but continued to live with former teammates.
On a Toronto visit the weekend before last, he met up with Friends at a west-end club.
At one point he left to use a bank machine and returned to say he had been "sucker-punched," police later said.
SERBA then led his Friends in search of the assailant and was smashed with a brick-like object in a passageway connecting Bloor St. to the Jane subway station.
He was put on life support in hospital but died on Tuesday of last week.
SERBA's family has asked for privacy but a few days ago issued a statement saying it had donated the young man's organs.
"Out of this tragedy we are comforted that Michael's great many qualities of strength, determination, compassion and goodness continue to shine through beyond his life," it said.
Charged with second-degree murder in SERBA's death is Nicholas CROWDIS, 22, of Toronto.

Teen dies playing hockey
Alex CORRANCE died while playing in a minor hockey tournament.
By Lois KALCHMAN, Debra BLACK, Toronto Star with files from John GODDARD
It was the beginning of what was supposed to be an action-packed AAA hockey tournament, but the game ended in tragedy yesterday with the death of a 17-year-old hockey player.
Alex CORRANCE -- the only child of Mississauga Rebels Midget AAA team manager Alan CORRANCE -- died of an apparent heart attack.
The teen's father had been on the bench at Ice Sports Scarborough when his son collapsed. He had raced out on the ice to help, not realizing the fallen player was his flesh and blood.
The teen, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound defenceman for the Rebels, had just come out from behind the net, his shorthanded team killing a penalty early in the game as they played against archrivals, the Mississauga Ice Dogs.
CORRANCE -- considered one of the healthiest players on the team skated to the top of the faceoff circle.
With the Ice Dogs scoring a tying goal, the Grade 12 student at Oakville Trafalgar High School suddenly buckled and dropped to the ice.
A referee skated past and then cut back around, asking if he was all right.
Two trainers quickly raced onto the ice and tried to save his life, using a defibrillator. An Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer and some off-duty firefighters and nurses also joined them. Somebody called 911. But there was no pulse.
Firefighters and ambulance personnel arrived and took over, beginning cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and rushing him to Markham Stouffville Hospital, to no avail. His father, who loved hockey and spent endless hours managing teams in Oakville, later told team officials his son "went down doing something he absolutely loved doing."
Alan CORRANCE said he was dreading going home to tell Alex's grandparents the news.
When contacted by the Star, a person at the CORRANCE home in Oakville said: "We're not interested in speaking to anyone right now."
Rebels coach Victor CRISCUOLO was still trying last night to piece together what happened earlier in the day as his team participated in its first game of the 2006 Showcase Major Midget Prospect Tournament, run by the Wexford Raiders.
"I'm still numb, still in shock," he said. "He basically collapsed on the ice. There was no contact… no one touched him, nothing.
"You wake up in the morning, the day after Christmas expecting to play in a tournament and to have fun. Our thoughts and prayers of the whole team all go towards the CORRANCE family.
"Alex was a tremendous kid, just a great kid. He was always upbeat, an absolutely beautiful person. He was a good hockey player but a better person. He was always a pleasure to be around."
CRISCUOLO said Alex spent the summer trying to prepare for the jump to tier two Junior A hockey, but he was a late cut.
"I knew the kid and knew of the dad," he said recollecting the call in late September to take Alex on his Rebels team.
The Scarborough midget tournament -- one of dozens running across the Greater Toronto Area during the Christmas break -- was a big event, with 20 teams from across southern Ontario, Ottawa, Kingston and Detroit competing over three days.
Now, CRISCUOLO is worried about the impact Alex's death will have on his team and is seeking grief counselling for his players through the Greater Toronto Hockey League or the Ontario Hockey Federation.
"It's a cruel life -- it's one of those lessons in life," CRISCUOLO said.
Alex's teammates will miss "just seeing him smile or listening to his iPod before the game."
Bart MARCOLINI, general manager of the Rebels, was also stunned by yesterday's tragedy. "You feel badly if someone gets a concussion or breaks an arm or leg but this, this is terrible. He was probably one of the healthiest on the team.
"You'd think there would be signs, but there weren't. I've been in hockey for 66 years and nothing like this has ever happened before."
Despite the sudden death, the tournament is scheduled to continue minus the Mississauga Rebels. General manager MARCOLINI has pulled the team from the tournament, saying he wouldn't expect the teenaged players to continue.
The Ice Dogs also decided to forgo playing the team's other game yesterday. Some of their players knew CORRANCE and were also in shock over his death, said the Rebels' coach. Tournament director Mike BRADLEY said he assumed the Ice Dogs would withdraw as well.
Greater Toronto Hockey League officials were stunned by the tragic turn of events. Greater Toronto Hockey League president John GARDNER said he couldn't think of another instance of something like this happening on ice during the three decades he has been with the league.
"What a tremendous shock it must be for everyone and during Christmas," he said.
"There were no signs of any problem… nothing."
An autopsy is scheduled for today.

GODFREY, Martyn, 2000 -- Died This Day
Writer born in Birmingham, England, in 1949.
After immigrating with his family to Canada when he was 8, he grew up in the Toronto area and once failed Grade 3 because he hated to write and couldn't spell. Later, he caught on and excelled at creative writing. After graduating from the University of Toronto, he taught in elementary and junior high schools in Ontario. In 1980, he moved to Alberta and taught there for a time before becoming a full-time writer. Apparently, he owed his success to a young science-fiction fan who hated school and who vowed he would only complete an assignment if his teacher promised to write a space story. The challenge resulted in Mr. GODFREY's first book, The Vandarian Incident, an action-packed, youth-oriented tale. Starting in 1981, he published about 40 books. Three of his books sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide and he received more than 10,000 fan letters a year.
