Crash shatters 2 families
Newmarket, Huntsville couples killed
One family was moving west, the other returning
By Bob MITCHELL and Tamara CHERRY, Staff Reporters
Two Ontario couples en route to fresh starts in their lives -- one moving out west, the other returning -- met tragedy instead when their vehicles collided on a northern highway. Five people were killed.
Shawna BAKOS- BIANCHI, 32, and her husband, David BIANCHI, 34, were moving back from Winnipeg to Newmarket to await the arrival in three weeks of their second child.
Huntsville residents Blair PALADICHUK, 41, and Sandy FELLER- PALADICHUK, 46, were heading to hotel jobs in the northern Saskatchewan town of La Ronge.
They were killed on Highway 17 near White River last Sunday when their pickup collided with an sport utility vehicle driven by BAKOS- BIANCHI, who died in the accident along with her 1½-year-old daughter, Victoria, and her mother, Joan BAKOS, 64.
David BIANCHI, 34, who was driving ahead of his family in a U-Haul filled with their belongings, discovered the terrible scene moments after seeing dust and dirt flying into the dusk sky in the rear-view mirror of his rented vehicle.
"David stopped the vehicle and ran back and found them. I don't think there are any words that can describe what he saw or felt," BIANCHI's uncle, Ciro LUPO, said yesterday.
"This is something that's going to take a long time for everybody to get over. Oh God. It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. A lot worse."
Originally from Scarborough, the couple married in May 2003 and moved to Winnipeg soon after when BAKOS- BIANCHI was transferred there by General Motors, LUPO said, adding her husband is a self-employed painter.
"She had taken maternity leave and they decided to move back to Ontario so they could be close to their family and even bought a home right next door to (her parents) Joan and Vic," LUPO said.
"Vic is an only child so he has nobody now. He's lost his wife, his daughter and his granddaughter."
The Paladichuks were a close couple as well, relatives say.
"Blair was a chef. Sandy ran hotels and resorts," PALADICHUK's sister, Kristin INGRAHAM, said from her parents' home in St. Catharines.
"They worked together; they did absolutely everything together."
They were regarded as "very much free spirits," INGRAHAM said, passing on words from her parents. "They were not big-city Toronto people at all. They were just a couple who were truly in love."
INGRAHAM said her family has been under a lot of stress since the tragedy. Her parents are devastated.
"My parents loved her as much as they loved him."
The couple married about 12 years ago, each bringing two children from previous relationships. They spent a few years living in the Yukon before moving to a home just outside Algonquin Park.
The decision to move out west didn't come easily, as it meant PALADICHUK would have to leave INGRAHAM, his only sibling, as she battled cancer.
"He was just kind of torn because I have cancer and he was really against it (the move,)" INGRAHAM said. "I'm really quite sick and he really didn't want to leave because I'm right between my treatments. He was very involved in my kids' lives."
However, with his wife's family in Edmonton, the couple decided to move to be closer to them.
"They kind of went back and forth to decide whether or not to fly," INGRAHAM said. "They decided to drive because they thought that it would be more of an adventure."
But not without stopping in St. Catharines to spend a week with PALADICHUK's family.
"It was just a nice week. The whole family was together and we went out for dinners, we had barbecues," INGRAHAM said, adding the family celebrated FELLER- PALADICHUK's 46th birthday during their visit.
"They had left here at 8 o'clock Sunday morning and I guess the accident happened exactly 12 hours later. We were waiting for them to call (that night) and we never got the call."
It wasn't until the following afternoon that they got word on the couple's fate.
FELLER- PALADICHUK was pronounced dead at the scene, they were told, while PALADICHUK held on for a while longer before being pronounced dead in hospital.
Staff Sgt. Dan DAWSON of the Ontario Provincial Police's Superior East detachment in Wawa said their investigation indicates that BAKOS- BIANCHI was driving when she suddenly slid onto the gravel shoulder.
"They were heading south on Highway 17 and she only was on the shoulder momentarily but then shot across into the path of the northbound pickup," DAWSON said.
"We have no idea what caused it. We don't know whether something distracted her. There was nothing mechanically wrong with either vehicle.
"No witnesses: survived the crash so we'll probably never know what happened."
Police said everybody involved was wearing seat belts and the child was strapped in a car seat.
"But it wouldn't have mattered considering the severity of the collision because nobody could have survived," DAWSON said. "Both vehicles were travelling at about the posted highway speed of 90 km/h and visibility was clear.
"Other than the husband's vehicle, they were the only vehicles on the road at that time."
Family members said they've learned their loved ones had initially stopped in White River to get some gas, but it was too busy so they decided to drive another 90 kilometres to Wawa where they were going to spend the night.
"Shawna's last day of work was Friday and they left on Saturday afternoon," LUPO said.
"After stopping at White River, they had only been on the road for about five or six kilometres when the crash happened.
"If you've ever driven up north, it doesn't take a lot to go onto the gravel. It's so easy to over-correct. I suspect that's what happened."
Once they got the call, LUPO and two other uncles immediately drove to Wawa to be with BIANCHI.
"He was all alone and we didn't want him to have to deal with the horrific events all on his own," LUPO said.
"I can't say enough about the people and the community of Wawa.
"Father Trevor (SCARFONE) stayed with David in a local church to comfort him until we got there. Everybody we dealt with was amazing, from Ontario Provincial Police officer Adam GOODLETT to the people who run the Wawa Motor Inn, who didn't charge us for the room."
Friends and family can attend visitation tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Chapel Ridge Funeral Home on Woodbine Ave. in Markham.
Funeral mass is at 11: 30 a.m. Saturday at Saint_John Chrysostom Catholic Church on Ontario St. in Newmarket with interment at Holy Cross Cemetery.

FOLEY, Christopher Columba
Passed away at home, on Good Friday, April 14, 2006, at the age of 80, in the High Park neighbourhood where he lived for more than 40 years. Christopher was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland on May 10, 1925. He was the beloved father of Margaret FOLEY and devoted husband to his late wife, Anne Teresa, née CLIFFORD. He is survived by his loving wife Marie Terese, née BONENFANT. Christopher was known affectionately as Christy by his wide circle of Friends, many of whom shared his passion for Irish culture. His was a life marked by a devotion to those institutions that nurtured the values he held dear, among them, the Catholic Church, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and numerous Irish social organizations. Although he moved away from his native Ireland as a teenager, Christy carried his roots with him wherever he went. He flew to Canada in 1948 on one of the early trans-Atlantic flights in search of greater opportunity. It was in Toronto that his enterprising spirit rose to the fore. Christy worked for C.N. Rail and the Royal York Hotel. Saving enough to buy his first home within six months, Christy turned it into yet another opportunity - becoming a landlord and giving other young Irish men a roof over their heads. He worked with the Metro Toronto Waterworks Department for 30 years and continued a close relationship with fellow retirees through the rest of his life. Family, work and his many community activities filled his days. Sickness did nothing to quell his stubborn streak nor dash his great love of travel. Christy will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. He leaves behind his cherished sisters-in-law Margaret HERRING, Evelyn FOLEY and longtime family friend, Mildred CREGAN. He is also survived by his loving nephews and nieces and their families: Ray FOLEY, Ann PALEN, Brian and Thomas HEGARTY, Thomas CARROLL, Peter, Gerard and Michael O'LOUGHLIN and Angela BYRNE. Christy, the youngest of six children born to Margaret SMITH and Thomas FOLEY, is predeceased by all his siblings, Kathleen, Gerty, May, Lily and brother Paddy. Special thanks to his doctor, Eckhart SCHWEIHOFER and Margaret GORECKI, the home care worker who became such a good friend. Visitation for our beloved Christy will be held Tuesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 19 from 2-4 and 7- 9 p.m. at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, Toronto, at Windermere Ave., east of Jane subway. Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, April 20 at 10: 30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 3055 Bloor Street West. In lieu of flowers, donations in the name of Christopher Foley to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or ShareLife would be much appreciated.

Esteemed lawyer, former Attorney General dies at 72
Talented orator suffered stroke
Introduced pay-equity law
By Tracey TYLER, Legal Affairs Reporter with files from Robert BENZIE
Ian SCOTT was a brilliant, charming, supremely confident overachiever who captivated the courtroom with his eloquence and wit. In his next act, as Ontario's reform-minded attorney general, he redefined the qualities expected from the person who holds that job.
But in one of life's cruel twists, at the prime of his life, a debilitating stroke robbed SCOTT of his ability to speak. And for the next 12 years, the man considered one of the country's most gifted lawyers and orators battled back, drawing on the same studious determination that characterized his legal career.
"He was a remarkable person, a tortured guy in some ways, but a beautiful human being," said former Ontario premier David PETERSON.
SCOTT, 72, died at his Toronto home early yesterday. He'd battled a variety of ailments in recent weeks, but after an extended stay in hospital he returned home. True to form, SCOTT, a voracious reader his whole life, insisted during his dying days that his sister read him excerpts from a recent memoir written by Eddie Goldenberg, political adviser to former prime minister Jean Chrétien.
SCOTT considered his time as Ontario's attorney general, between 1985 and 1990, the best job he ever had. As usual, he was centre stage.
"He was a real busy bee around government," PETERSON said yesterday. "I very much valued his judgment and he was a very, very, very powerful minister."
At Queen's Park, Premier Dalton McGuinty interrupted proceedings to announce SCOTT's death. Attorney General Michael Bryant said Canada has lost a legal legend.
"Everybody was in gobsmacked awe of the man.
Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory, who worked with SCOTT as a young lawyer, paid tribute to his friend as a "wonderful, courageous, funny, smart, dedicated man."
There were high expectations riding on SCOTT when he sailed into office.
But the lustre quickly tarnished when PETERSON's Liberal government, in one of its first acts in office, announced plans to abolish the honorary designation of Queen's Counsel, long considered a form of patronage.
The initial huffing and puffing gave way to mixed reviews of SCOTT's performance. There were notable successes. He took steps to rid the judicial appointments process of patronage, setting up an independent advisory committee to screen candidates.
SCOTT introduced pay-equity legislation and waged a successful battle over full funding to separate schools.
But Ontario was rapidly acquiring a reputation for the longest trial delays on the continent. SCOTT was convinced the solution wasn't more money and judges, but a restructuring of the entire system. He locked horns with the judiciary over a move that merged three court levels into two.
"He was a reformer at heart and he wanted to make a contribution," said Toronto lawyer Chris PALIARE, one of SCOTT's former articling students and law partners. "If that meant merging the courts and offending some superior court judges, so be it."
SCOTT had a privileged Ottawa upbringing and seemed destined for a career in law. His father, Cuthbert SCOTT, was a leading intellectual-property lawyer. His great-grandfather, Sir Richard SCOTT, a member of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's cabinet, was responsible for the Scott Act, a temperance law.
The eldest of six, SCOTT displayed first-born, overachieving tendencies from the start, said his younger sister, Martha.
In high school, SCOTT joined a debating league in an effort to overcome a childhood stammer. That, in turn, revealed a natural talent for oral advocacy.
"He was the most persuasive communicator I've ever encountered," said lawyer Linda ROTHSTEIN, who worked with SCOTT as an articling student.
But he was often so nervous before a case that he had to go and have a cigarette to calm down, PALIARE said.
Measured against that backdrop, SCOTT's stroke seemed particularly cruel, said Ontario Chief Justice Roy McMurtry, who considers SCOTT's death "the end of an era."
SCOTT recently remarked that he worked his "ass off" to regain some ability to speak, his sister said.
"In 12 years, he did make a life for himself," she said. "And he taught me that communication has nothing to do with speech, because he was able, with a raised eyebrow or a hand gesture or a single word, to be every bit as eloquent as he had been before."
