Cabbie killed by racing Mercedes
By Isabel TEOTONIO, Staff Reporter with files from Nick PRON, Henry STANCU, Dale Anne FREED and David GROSSMAN
Cab driver Tahir KHAN had just dropped off his last fare and was headed south on Mount Pleasant Rd. It was 10: 20 p.m.
Racing north were two Mercedes driven by 18-year-olds, each pushing 140 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, police say. Next to one driver was the popular video game Need For Speed.
As the Mercedes rounded a bend, the taxi made a left turn on to Whitehall Rd. A loud crash shattered the still of Tuesday night.
One of the Mercedes, a silver 1999 model, T-boned the taxi, drilling it into a utility pole, police say.
KHAN, 46, died instantly, and the driver of the mangled Mercedes escaped with just a few scratches. The driver of the other car fled, returning to the scene after ditching his car a few blocks away, posing as a bystander, police say.
It was a tragic end to KHAN's life, which was brimming with hope as he looked forward to becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. It was a day he'd long looked forward to, because it meant he was one step closer to being reunited with his wife, whom he hoped to bring over from Pakistan.
The accused are university students -- believed to be studying at Ryerson and York -- and both had attended St. Andrew's College, a prestigious private school in Aurora, graduating in June 2004. One played on St. Andrew's football team, and both were average students who never got in trouble, said head football coach Courtney SHRIMPTON. One of them lives a tony neighbourhood just north of the Bridle Path. Yesterday, police would not comment on whether the cars belonged to the teens' parents.
As police yesterday questioned what influence the game may have played and KHAN's Friends grappled with his death, the two accused made a brief court appearance.
"It's a horrible irony," said Det. Paul LOBSINGER about the presence of the video game, which allows players to choose high-end cars and race them through city streets while being pursued by police cruisers.
"Some have said this is life imitating art but I don't know," said LOBSINGER, adding "a game is a game, but when you get behind the wheel it's reality."
LOBSINGER described the game as an "ultra-violent driving simulation, fighting simulation and criminal simulation."
"But are games the cause?" he asked. "Absolutely not. But, it is rather ironic."
Police say alcohol was not a factor, and that it's not clear if the video game was played before the two went out driving.
"I have no words to explain why this happened," said cabbie Muhammad NASEEM, who was a friend of KHAN's. "He was a very nice man, very quiet, very polite, all the good words you can think of can be used to describe him."
Earlier this week, recalled NASEEM, KHAN had told him that he planned to return home to the district of Jhang, in Pakistan's Punjab region. KHAN's mother was ill and he wanted to be with her. He also looked forward to visiting his brother, sister and wife of 15 years, whom he's helped support since moving to Canada almost six years ago.
He was looking forward to returning home as a Canadian citizen, something he would have become during a citizenship ceremony at the Scarborough Town Centre.
"He was so excited," said KHAN's friend Munir AHMAD, while visiting the coroner's office to identify the body. "He was planning to bring his family here."
Last night, a large group of Friends gathered at the east-end apartment KHAN shared with Shahid HASAN to call his family in Pakistan and break the devastating news.
"He had lots of Friends," said HASAN, who has lived with KHAN for the last five years in Scarborough. "He was a very kind man who was helpful to everyone."
Jim BELL, manager of Diamond Taxi, said KHAN had been with the company for three years and called his death a tragedy for everyone involved.
"Those kids must be feeling absolutely terrible and the parents of these kids who were racing must be feeling devastated."
Charged with criminal negligence causing death are Alexander RYAZANOV and Wang-Piao Dumani ROSS. ROSS is also charged with failing to stop after an accident causing death.
Outside the courtroom where the two teens made a brief appearance at bail court in College Park yesterday, the aunt of one described them as "really good boys."
"It's tragic, it's horrible what happened. Now I am going to be worried about him staying in jail with criminals."
Because lawyers for the pair weren't available, the two must return for separate bail hearings -- ROSS tomorrow and RYAZANOV on Monday. Neither has a criminal record.
The two long-time Friends chatted quietly to each other as they sat in the prisoner's box.
The Crown says it will oppose their release on two grounds: public outrage over the death and the likelihood of reoffending.

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.

Ike HILDEBRAND, Athlete (1927-2006)
Pint-sized competitor may have been a world champion in hockey, but he happened to be an even better box lacrosse player
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Victoria -- Ike HILDEBRAND led a hockey team from small-town Ontario to the world championship tournament in 1959. A small, baby-faced athlete, he was a sparkplug on the ice and a general on the bench.
His greatest moment occurred as playing coach of the Belleville McFarlands. The Macs faced a gruelling schedule of exhibition matches across Europe before arriving in Czechoslovakia for the round-robin tournament in March of 1959.
A senior club team, the Canadians wore a maple leaf on the chest of their sweaters. They were defending on Canada's behalf the world title, won the previous winter by the Whitby Dunlops. Few hockey fans back home appreciated the difficulty of the task. The Czechs were no longer patsies, the Soviets were on the cusp of becoming the dominant force in hockey, and the Americans would show their skill by winning the Olympic tournament the next year. Anything but a championship for the Macs would have been regarded as failure.
The Canadians opened by defeating Poland 9-0, then shut out Finland 6-0 in a chippy game in which Mr. HILDEBRAND suffered a facial cut.
The next game featured the undefeated Soviet Union, seen as the only likely challengers. The Macs gained a 2-0 lead before Mr. HILDEBRAND scored what would be an insurance goal in Canada's 3-1 victory. The Macs mobbed their goaltender and celebrated for 10 minutes before the end-of-game ceremonies could begin. "They acted as if they had already won the title," the New York Times reported.
The Macs then defeated Sweden 5-0, before knocking off the United States 4-1. Mr. HILDEBRAND, one of five Macs with National Hockey League experience, scored in each of the games.
The only way the Macs could lose the title would be to lose to the hometown Czechs by a large margin. After exchanging gifts of Canadian cheese and Czech chocolate on the ice at Prague, the local side came out roaring, gaining a 2-0 lead in the first period. With the score 4-3 for the home side, the Canadian playing coach ordered his goalie off the ice in favour of an extra attacker. The move backfired. The Czechs won the game, 5-3, but Canada claimed the championship.
Surrounded by teammates on the ice, Mr. HILDEBRAND hoisted a trophy in the air while still wearing hockey gloves.
Back home, the accolades were restrained. The Toronto Star's story was headlined: Macs are champs, but… folks will recall loss to Czechs.
"We were meeting a club that was fresh," the coach explained to the paper's readers. "I still think we should have beaten Czechoslovakia, but I cannot begrudge the Czechs this win. They played well. We did not play a good game.
"It could be that the grind is beginning to catch up with us. In the last 20 weeks the McFarlands have played roughly 85 games and have barnstormed through Europe."
He spent another season with the Macs before being fired, an ignominious end to a solid career at a sport that was not even his best. For Mr. HILDEBRAND, a world champion in hockey, was perhaps the best box lacrosse player of his day.
Isaac Bruce HILDEBRAND was born in Winnipeg and raised near Grande Prairie, Alberta. He had never heard of lacrosse until he was 14 and his family moved to New Westminster, British Columbia, then, as now, a hotbed for the sport.
In 1943, the city's Salmonbellies won the Mann Cup as national champions with 16-year-old Ike on the roster. The 'Bellies again qualified for the Mann Cup playoff the next season.
Although they lost to the St. Catharines Athletics of Ontario, the teenaged phenomenon from New Westminster won the Mike Kelly Award as the most valuable player in the series. He remains the youngest person to have won the award.
The same teams met again in the 1946 Mann Cup, by which time the slick, 5-foot-7, 147-pound attacker found himself a target. "Little Ike HILDEBRAND, leading scorer in western competition, looked like a midget on the big [Maple Leaf] Gardens floor and he found the going rough and nasty," the Globe and Mail's Jim VIPOND reported in 1946. The Athletics again won the cup.
Mr. HILDEBRAND would score more than 900 goals and 700 assists in his lacrosse career, which saw him play in five Mann Cup series. He was named to league all-star teams 13 times in 15 seasons. He won scoring titles in 1946, 1948, 1954 and 1955, the last two coming while playing for the Peterborough Timbermen.
A talent in both of Canada's national sports, he played hockey in winter and lacrosse in summer.
He had two successful seasons with hockey's Oshawa Generals and another with the Toronto Marlboroughs, before being invited to training camp for the National Hockey League's Maple Leafs at Owen Sound. He practised during the day and then flew to Peterborough to play in the Mann Cup. The Leafs owner wanted the budding star to sign.
"Major Conn SMYTHE called me into his office and here's the deal he offered me -- $1,000 up front, $3,000 a year if I played in the minors at Tulsa, $4,000 if I went to Pittsburgh, and $5,000 if the Leafs kept me," Mr. HILDEBRAND once told Toronto Star columnist Jim PROUDFOOT. "I told him I'd have to talk it over with my mom and dad."
Instead, he telephoned Charlie CONACHER, the retired National Hockey League star who had been his coach at Oshawa. His advise was to ask for $1,000 on top of each of those figures. When Mr. HILDEBRAND did so, suggesting the higher salary came as parental advice, Mr. SMYTHE became furious. "You little so-and-so, have you been talking to CONACHER?"
Mr. HILDEBRAND wound up playing for the Los Angeles Monarchs and would spend five high-scoring seasons in the minors, all the while studying to become a structural engineer for a career he would later follow.
In 1954, he finally broke into the National Hockey League when the New York Rangers put him on a line with Don (Bones) Raleigh and Nick Mickoski, a fellow Winnipegger. He scored two goals and added three assists in his first five games.
Despite the terrific early success, Rangers coach Frank Boucher juggled lines, placing Mr. HILDEBRAND with rookie winger Billy Dea and centre Max Bentley. The goals stopped coming and the Rangers sold him to the minor-league Vancouver Canucks before being flipped to the National Hockey League's Chicago Black Hawks.
He soon rediscovered his scoring touch, but his season came to a sudden end after he broke a leg in a game in Toronto in February of 1954. He wound up with just seven goals and 11 assists in a 41-game National Hockey League career.
As a coach, he had success behind the bench at both lacrosse and hockey, as he handled junior and senior Ontario teams in Pembroke and Orillia. He led Belleville to an upset Allan Cup championship over the Kelowna Packers in 1958, earning nomination as Canada's representative to the world championship the next March.
In 1985, he was inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in Toronto. He had earlier been enshrined in the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame at New Westminster and the sports halls of fame in the Ontario cities of Peterborough, Belleville and Oshawa.
Even so, being a small man in a roughneck sport like lacrosse was not the most dangerous job Mr. HILDEBRAND ever held. As a young man in New Westminster, he painted bridges along the wind-swept Pacific Coast.
Ike HILDEBRAND was born on May 27, 1927, in Winnipeg. He died on August 27 in St. Albert, Alberta. He was 79. He leaves his wife Barbara, two sons, three daughters, four grandchildren, a sister and a brother.

PROUDFOOT, Michael John (March 27, 1967-December 17, 2006)
In Edmonton, from complications following an unsuccessful heart transplant, Michael, beloved husband of Joan and dearly loved father of Madeline and Spencer, ended his lengthy and uncomplaining battle with his failing heart. Michael also leaves to mourn parents Sandra and John, brother Clifford (Karen), nephews Alec and Bruce parents-in-law Douglas and June HANTON, brothers-in-law David (Nicky) children David and Euan; Timothy (Donna) children Tynan, Callum and Rhonan; Magnus (Daralee) daughter Ailsa; Dhugal (fiancée Leslie); many aunts, uncles and cousins. Born in Winnipeg, Michael attended Montrose, River Heights and Kelvin Schools, where he established himself as a musician, actor and singer. Following graduation from the University of Manitoba with a B.Comm. (Hon), B.Mus (voice), and B.Ed. (Elem. and Choral), he began a career in teaching and developing wonderful skills in choral leadership. As well, he performed with the Winnipeg Singers for several years and appeared with Canzona, and was a church soloist for over 10 years. He also performed with Rainbow Stage, the U of M Opera Workshop, The University Singers and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Hymn Sing. His teaching career included five years in Saint_James Assiniboia School Division, and latterly Elementary Music Specialist at Saint_John's Ravenscourt School. He was particularly proud of the choirs he led in the Pembina Trails School Division. Michael was a devoted family man who worked with Joan to surround Madeline and Spencer with love and a wide variety of activities. They enjoyed travel and introduced the children to cultural, athletic and musical events and opportunities. All the family reflect the same joie de vivre, and Michael's life was full of laughter. His attention to detail for parties, invitations and decorations was legendary. On top of this he was an adventurous gourmet cook always trying new creations on his delighted Friends. Michael enjoyed a close and deep relationship with his parents, who raised him to believe he could do anything he set his mind to. This approach showed throughout his professional and personal life. His connection with the family cottage at Falcon Lake was also important, and he loved his time there. Only a few months ago he captained his own boat and worked to get Madeline up on water skis. He never gave in to increasing problems with heart function. Even these specific details do not capture the essence of Michael's engaging personality and exceptional ability to draw beautiful music from young singers. His sense of humour and mischief might not always have been appreciated by his teachers, but it added a delightful element to his choral style. His boys and young men's choirs especially rose to great heights under his leadership. He had the ability to motivate, educate and inspire in a way that brought out the best in his students. Michael approached life with flair and energy, using his many talents with enduring panache and laughter. With his wife Joan, he would light up a room, liven any party, enhance a kitchen, and carry it all off with apparent ease. For the last seven years, Michael fought with a rare and ultimately relentless heart disease. Few people knew of this, and he faced every day with the possibility of lacking the physical energy to continue. When he was finally placed on the waiting list for a new heart it was with the hope that this would renew his life and be the ultimate Christmas gift. Sadly, the procedure, for complex reasons, did not offer this, and his life ended peacefully in Edmonton's University of Alberta Hospital. Michael's legacy includes a remarkably wide circle of Friends who will always cherish his sometimes acerbic wit, his warmth and exuberance. As well, there are hundreds of young people who have been exposed to the joy of choral singing, and this gift from Michael will resonate on through the generations. In time, his young children will know that their father was a special man who gave much to the world in his too short life. It is a remarkable gift to share music, and both Michael and Joan have filled their lives proving that statement. He will be missed, but we will all sing on. A memorial service will be held at Westminster United Church, N.W. Maryland at Westminster, at 1: 00 p.m. Thursday December 21, 2006. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. 'When words fail, music speaks.' - Hans Christian Anderson

STAVRO embodied local sports
Leafs ex-owner, 78, dreamed, lived big
'Honest Grocer' dies of heart attack
By Dave PERKINS, Sports Columnist
When it came to sports, Steve STAVRO possessed a keen sense of anticipation and optimism. It's a trait common to those involved in horse racing; some say it keeps them young. There's always another crop of 2-year-olds with promise coming, always a barn full of 3-year-olds that might be good enough to make a man dream the big dreams.
STAVRO was better known -- regrettably famous and almost infamous for owning the Maple Leafs for a contentious decade or so and he and the fans in this city dreamed the big dreams there, too. They went unmet on his watch, although that certainly didn't make him unique.
Many aspects of his life did, though, a life that ended Sunday, at age 78, from a heart attack, at his large and imposing home above the 18th fairway at Rosedale Golf Club.
STAVRO was a guy who grew up the hard way. Worked hard. Got up early in the morning and kept his hands on his businesses. Understood and appreciated the handshake and the back-room deal. Had a reverence for, if not a fixation on, Alexander The Great, as some Macedonian-born persons did (and do). For all the in-person joking you could do with the guy referred to here as the Honest Grocer, his angriest reaction, in our dealings, came when asked if he'd seen the story that historians had uncovered evidence suggesting Alexander The Great was a little light in the sandals. The Grocer definitely didn't want to go there.
Now, he'll spend eternity beneath an image of his hero; his recently finished grave monument in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, one he was proudly describing to Friends at a breakfast just this past Saturday morning, has a 22-foot-tall statue of Alexander The Great on horseback atop the mausoleum. There are Maple Leafs, Raptors, Air Canada Centre, horse racing and soccer motifs, as well as four guardian lions and they definitely aren't girl lions. He has the bases covered.
STAVRO was a people person all the way, knew the names of the guys who unloaded the trucks and stocked the shelves. He also had Pavarotti over to his house one night after a concert at Maple Leaf Gardens to meet and even sing a song or two for 100 swells at $1,000 a plate -- this was when $1,000 was a lot of money with all the money going to Villa Columbo. So he knew which fork to use, like he knew his way around the Turf Club at Woodbine, although his heart, with its humble beginnings, was on the backstretch.
When it came to sports, he was an owner in the old-fashioned sense of the word, which means he was different from the mere investors and money lenders who, 3½ years ago, squeezed him out of the corporate picture that now has become Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.
He thought players made too much money -- he was and is not alone in this regard -- and rejected the chance to add Wayne Gretzky late in his career as being too expensive. He fought against other big-money contracts, too, one of the reasons he was chased out. He was old-fashioned in other ways, gruff and profane being two of them. He didn't know how to begin to deal with the Maple Leaf Gardens pedophilia scandal, a messy affair he inherited, along with the hockey team, and his regime's insensitive behaviour was itself scandalous to many.
He feuded with his cousins, the Bitoves, who owned the basketball team at the time. Again, that did not make him unique.
STAVRO liked money, surely, and resisted overspending whenever possible. The means by which he took control of the Maple Leafs came into serious question. He acted as buyer and seller as executor of Harold BALLARD's estate and when the charities to which BALLARD left the team, led by a few sharp stockholders, protested the short price involved, the securities people saw their side of things. STAVRO needed to come up with something like $51 million to make the pot square and thereafter became financially vulnerable to the takeover that ultimately came in 2003.
This short-changing of the charities was at odds with his track record for writing cheques for good causes. He did plenty of that; every year, when this space collected cash for kids at Christmas in the name of Jim PROUDFOOT, a letter and a $1,000 cheque arrived from the Steve and Sally Stavro Foundation. He was, others would testify, an easy mark for the right reasons.
There were other questions, though. His Knob Hills Farms, a vast grocery empire he built through hard work and handshakes, couldn't keep pace with modern retail practices and went under, yet he ended up controlling a prime chunk of city-owned waterfront land under curious circumstances. It was the land where the athlete's village would have been had Toronto won the 2008 Olympics. He'd have made a fortune.
Because he had been such a noticeable part of the Toronto sporting scene for a few decades -- his presence not unlike that, in a different realm, of a Johnny Lombardi -- he remained a fixture at the racetrack and the dinners where the sporting crowd gathers, even after his Maple Leaf proprietorship was over.
Our last conversation, at last November's Canadian Sports Hall of Fame induction dinner, started about his thoroughbreds. We discussed a 3-year-old of his that had looked, but not run, the part last year and he was bubbling about his 2-year-olds (now 3-year-olds) and their futures. He also wondered how the people who run Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment could sleep at night, having abandoned Saint_John's, Newfoundland., with their top farm club.
"Nicest people in the world, those people in Newfoundland, and we had a good deal with them. Now we're just (bleeping) them," he said and he meant it. He said he was ashamed of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. This put him ahead of the curve again.
He also didn't understand what Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment was thinking by trying pro soccer again, because STAVRO was nothing if not persistent when it came to soccer. He often put his own money -- not taxpayers' -- where his heart was, bankrolling several stabs at making pro soccer work in this town, from the Continental Soccer League to the International Soccer League, the Eastern Canada Professional Soccer League, the United Soccer Association and the North American Soccer League. Soccer responded, at least by naming him to its Canadian hall of fame last year as a builder.
He had his enemies -- who doesn't? -- but he made himself a lot of Friends in soccer, horse racing, junior hockey, around the Leafs. One of a kind? No question. No one else like him in this town.

Jackie was a gracious, gentle and proud Noni to her grandchildren Jennifer, Laurie, Kyle, Cory, Christopher and Daniella and to her great-grandchildren Brandon and Kaleb. Jackie has played so many important roles throughout her full and happy life: daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend and eternal source of optimism. For most, Jackie will be remembered for her deep faith, positive attitude, good heart, engaging personality, quick smile and passion for life. Above all, Jackie will be remembered for her belief in God and for her love and dedication to her husband and family. And in return, she has been our strength, light and inspiration.
