Father of four dead after passenger stabs him in the neck, back and torso
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A24
A 40-year-old cab driver died after being stabbed by a passenger in east Toronto early yesterday -- one in a wave of four attacks on city-area taxi drivers within 24 hours.
Mahmood BHATTI, a father of four, was found bleeding from the back, neck and chest at around 3: 30 a.m. after his Beck cab slammed into the back of a parked car at Coxwell and Danforth Avenues.
He remained in hospital on life support, but doctors pronounced him dead at 10: 20 p.m.
More than a dozen cabbies who gathered outside Saint Michael's Hospital while Mr. BHATTI's family were at his bedside mourned him as a hard-working colleague and exemplary parent.
Beck general manager Gail BECK- SOUTER said the same of Mr. BHATTI, who owned his car and had driven for the company for about six years.
"This is a real tragedy," she said. "He is a terrific guy, very enthusiastic about business. Always wanting to make improvements within the industry. The guy with the good ideas. He'll be sorely missed."
A man was spotted fleeing the scene, and police are optimistic digital photographs from the in-car camera, required in all city taxis, will lead to an arrest.
In Markham, meanwhile, a second cab driver was in stable condition after his throat was cut in a carjacking around midnight.
In a third incident on Eglinton Avenue in west-end Toronto at around 5: 40 a.m., a cabbie driving for Royal Taxi was beaten and robbed of his vehicle, apparently after an argument. The car is a blue Chevrolet Impala bearing the licence plate ABPF 744. The driver was listed in stable condition.
And early Monday, a cabbie driving two men north on Highway 400 was robbed at gunpoint of cash and his phone and left stranded by the roadside after his taxi was stolen.
It was later recovered at a curling rink in Bradford, about midway between Toronto and Barrie, and provincial police retrieved photographs of the two assailants.
The last slaying of a Toronto cab driver occurred in September, after a gap of several years, when Morteazai KHORASSANI, 42, was stabbed in his parked taxi behind an apartment building on Don Mills Road. A 19-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder.
In general, violence against the roughly 5,000 taxis and 10,000 drivers has declined steeply in recent years, after cameras and other safety measures were implemented.
"Crimes committed against cab drivers have decreased by about 70 per cent since 2000," said Jim BELL, president of Diamond Taxicab and a leader of the Toronto Taxicab Alliance, an owners group.
Mr. BELL, who knows Mr. BHATTI, credits a range of city initiatives for the decline -- the in-car cameras, global positioning devices, special emergency flashers and enhanced driver-safety training.
"This has been a tough day," he said. "But it's an anomaly. We've seen it over the years where we've had a whole rash of incidents in a very short time and then nothing happens for a couple of years. You just can't predict when and how it's going to happen."
Bruce ROBERTSON, who heads the city's licensing division, concurred.
"This is a dangerous profession, for obvious reasons, but what's happened here is not typical at all. I don't know what would explain it."
Co-op driver Edward LEIGHTON, a 16-year veteran of the roads, says he figured out the risks long ago.
"I drive during the day, in the downtown, and I haven't had a problem in 10 years," he said.
"Late at night -- that's where almost of the problems happen. I'm cautious; I think that's why I've survived. I'm choosy about what areas I go into. But a lot of drivers have big expenses, they're desperate, so they'll pick up anybody."

Force of nature in art world
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
He's the world-renowned geneticist, she was the starving artist, and yet he worshipped her.
"She was my hero," David SUZUKI said about his younger sister Aiko. "She was incredible, she lived the life of environmentalism. I don't think she ever passed beyond the poverty level of income, but she was wealthy in community."
Aiko SUZUKI was a fibre artist, who created that haunting pale hanging that floated throughout the main-floor hub of the Toronto Reference Library from 1981 until 2004, when it was removed for cleaning. She was also a sculptor, painter, printmaker, dance-set designer, curator, teacher.
Her Friends and artistic colleagues always thought of her as a force of nature -- and that was the phrase they used at her memorial service on January 14 at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre after SUZUKI died December 31, at age 68, in her Toronto home.
The day of the service was also the day of her final show in the centre's Gendai Gallery, which opened in 2000, six years after SUZUKI approached many within the Japanese-Canadian community with an idea of incorporating a gallery within the cultural centre.
Although weakened by her chemotherapy and worsening health, SUZUKI spent last summer in a makeshift studio in her garden, working on a series of pieces taken from the world of nature and from photographs by her daughter Chiyoko SZLAVNICS, who is a musician and composer living in Berlin.
They were smaller than her normal work and deceptively pretty. "I was shocked, the images were real -- fiddleheads, leaves -- not abstracts," SZLAVNICS said. But closer inspection revealed layering, complexity and depth.
SUZUKI called her show "From The Garden: Stage IV," a reference to her diagnosis of terminal cancer.
"I think it kept her alive," said her friend, composer Ann SOUTHAM. "She probably got grabbed by it."
SUZUKI was a strong, independent woman -- as a single mother raising a daughter and as an Asian woman in the testosterone-charged art scene, she had to be. She always organized her own shows. The reality was she usually didn't have a gallery to represent her works and for years had to do it herself.
Her last show was no different.
SUZUKI knew she wasn't going to be able to make her own opening. The day before she died, she told her daughter to call it off, believing it couldn't happen without her, but SZLAVNICS told her mother that this show would go on.
SZLAVNICS saw that her mother was relieved. After all, art is what she had always lived for.
SUZUKI spent her early childhood in a wartime internment camp in British Columbia, moving to Leamington and then London, Ontario, in 1945. Everyone in her family had an English and a Japanese name. She was Geraldine or Gerry, a high school cheerleader, beautiful.
David SUZUKI said their Canadian-born father had a "traditional, screwy attitude" about his daughters completing high school and then getting married, even as David was in the United States at university.
But Gerry SUZUKI discovered the world of art when she took a London Artists' Workshop featuring Greg Curnoe and Tony Urquhart. In 1958, she moved to Toronto, joined the Toronto Artists' Workshop, and a year later met Alex SZLAVNICS, a flamboyant Hungarian immigrant. Their 1965 marriage didn't last, but it was he who encouraged SUZUKI to recognize her heritage and use her Japanese name.
Her first solo show two years later at the Pollack Gallery was criticized for including a soundtrack. Local critic Kay KRITZWISER deemed the sound of a heart thumping a "distraction" from abstract art that was "strong enough to stand on its own," but SUZUKI's restless vision never recognized the boundaries separating one medium from another.
As she moved into fibre art, she also became a set designer, working with composer SOUTHAM and choreographer Trish BEATTY on many Toronto Dance Theatre productions. Her studio at Yonge and Bloor Sts. amounted to a fusion of poets, sound performers, musicians and artists.
"We were all flying by the seat of our pants," SOUTHAM said. "It was tremendous fun and it was impossible to say what it was all about."
SUZUKI's professional pinnacle may have occurred when architect Raymond Moriyama chose her to design the fibre sculpture for his new library building, but it came at a great cost.
She developed rheumatoid arthritis and lived on cortisone shots and in constant pain. She had "constant" surgery, her daughter said. Her hands, the tools with which she expressed herself, were gnarled and misshapen, yet art adviser and consultant Catherine MINARD remembers watching SUZUKI at work in her studio and marvelling at her fluidity and grace.
"Everything I saw was lyrical and had a lot of movement because of the influence of music on her work," MINARD said. "She always had jazz playing in her studio." In fact, someone who had seen SUZUKI's painting called Stan Get (z) Blue told the jazz musician about it. It became the cover of Voyage, Getz's 1986 album.
In 1988, after Japanese Canadians won redress -- money and an official apology from the federal government for its treatment of them during World War 2 -- writer Joy Kogawa approached SUZUKI about curating a joint exhibit of art by Indian, Inuit and Japanese-Canadian artists.
"For Aiko, it was the first time she realized the possibilities of being Japanese Canadian and how empowering that can be," said filmmaker Midi Onodera.
It was the beginning of SUZUKI's activism. She produced a directory of professional Japanese-Canadian artists, served on the board of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, founded the art gallery and curated several shows.
SUZUKI supported herself by teaching art at Upper Canada College and film animation at Harbourfront, and for years worked with the Inner City Angels organization.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer of 2002 and told she had six months to live, but this was a woman who was already living with pain and she wasn't stopping. She organized Paper/Stone/Scissors for the Gendai Gallery, installations by five traditional and five contemporary artists, and in May 2005 she unveiled her own show, "Bombard/Invade/Radiate: Witness at the A Space Gallery." It explored SUZUKI's reflections about the late Susan Sontag's pronouncement of the military characteristics of fighting cancer.
Everyone assumed it would be her last show. For anyone else it might have been. But SUZUKI not only lived for her art, she lived by her art, and she began work on the garden show that would open at her memorial.
