Cyclist tumbles to death off bridge
By Oliver MOORE, Page A3
A cyclist riding on the sidewalk of a tall bridge in Mississauga, just west of Toronto, lost control of his bike and tumbled over the railing to his death, police said yesterday.
The lifeless body of Andrzej SACAWA was found on the banks of the Credit River, 28 metres below Burnhamthorpe Road. His mountain bike remained atop the busy bridge, relatively undamaged, and police are looking for witnesses: to the freak accident.
"Unknown is how he lost control of his bicycle," said Peel Regional Police media relations officer Peter BRANDWOOD. " Somehow he struck the railing of the bridge."
Burnhamthorpe Road is almost always busy and the sidewalk over the bridge has been designated a paved bike lane, said cycling advocate Darren STEHR. It's not an approach he approves of.
"We know riding on the sidewalk is dangerous, if you look at City of Toronto stats we know that's where a lot of accidents happen," said Mr. STEHR, speaking on behalf of Advocacy for Respect for Cyclists.
"This cyclist had two choices, either go over the side of the bridge or go into traffic, neither is very good."
Mr. SACAWA was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel.
"It would appear that the guy lost control of the bike, unfortunately, and the only place he had to fall was over the bridge," Mr. BRANDWOOD said.
Southern Ontario was experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures yesterday, and Mr. SACAWA was among cyclists across the region who took the opportunity to stretch their legs.
It is unknown how far Mr. SACAWA had pedaled before his accident. But according to CTV News, the father of two lived only a few kilometres from the scene.
Mr. SACAWA was riding west on the sidewalk on the northern side of the bridge -- that is, with the flow of traffic -- when the accident occurred.
The railing he went over stands a bit more than one metre high, roughly the height of a tall man's waist.

STEIN, Theodore
On October 22, 2006, Theodore STEIN passed away after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's Disease. Theodore STEIN is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Patricia, who was always by his side. His son Jeffrey, Daughter-in-law Beverly and four grandchildren, David, Alexis, Michael, and Shannon. Theodore STEIN, originally from Vienna, Austria, was one of the last survivors of the infamous Nazi Pogrom known as Krystallnacht in Vienna. He had attempted in 1939, a few months before the outbreak of World War Two to escape the horrors of Nazism to enter Switzerland, but was arrested by the Swiss Police and sent back to his native Austria. Two weeks before the war began in August of 1939, he, and thousands of other refugees, was given asylum in England. There he resided and worked for British Intelligence until the fall of Dunkirk where he was subsequently re-evacuated to Canada. Theodore was listed as a friendly prisoner of war by the Canadian authorities and was one of those European Jewish refugees whom the then Minister of Immigration had stated "none is too many". Despite Canada's dismal record on saving Jewish refugees from death camps, Theodore became a citizen of Canada and always considered himself a Canadian first and foremost. Later on in life he was interviewed as a refugee in the book "None is Too Many". Like those whom he survived with, he learnt that he had lost his father and mother, Jacob and Regina STEIN, who perished at Auschwitz. Despite his great losses, Theodore regarded himself as a survivor and not a victim and always fought against all forms of racism. Theodore became a successful real estate agent and manager and when not working he loved his family, the opera, classical music, and film. His motto in life was always look for the best in people.

Theodore STEIN, Holocaust Survivor: (1918-2006)
Successful immigrant bore no ill will toward Canada even though it refused entry to his parents, who died in the camps
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Theodore (Ted) STEIN's life began to unravel 68 years ago tonight. Of course, there had been stark warnings that went mostly unheeded. This Hitler is just a nut; he will pass. We are Austrians, after all, and secular. We will be all right. You'll see.
The delusion that gripped countless others in Vienna's 170,000-strong Jewish community had seeped its way into the STEIN household, despite the fact that by the autumn of 1938, the Nazi swastika flew in every corner of the city. It had been eight months since the Anschluss ingested Austria into the Third Reich.
The beginning of the end for Mr. STEIN -- indeed, all European Jewry -- took place on the night of November 9, 1938, when Nazi storm troopers and local hooligans, emboldened by news of the assassination of a German official in Paris -- by a Jew -- took to the streets. In dozens of German and Austrian cities, synagogues were torched and the windows of Jewish-owned homes and businesses smashed. The event would take its name from the terrifying scenes on the formerly grand boulevards: Kristallnacht -- the Night of Broken Glass.
Officials arrested some 6,000 Austrian Jews, deporting them to Dachau. Among them was Mr. STEIN's father, Jacob. Only those who promised to emigrate immediately, leaving their property behind, were released. Twenty-seven Austrian Jews were murdered in the pogrom.
Mr. STEIN, then a 20-year-old man-about-town who frequented the theatre and opera, was arrested on the steps of his family's flat and hauled to a local school for processing. An SS sergeant put him in charge of stoking a wood stove. Mr. STEIN bent over to do so. "You showed your ass to me!" the Nazi bellowed, and proceeded to administer a ferocious beating to the young man. A few minutes later, the same thing happened. The scenario played out several more times before the officer relented.
The STEINs had been highly assimilated, acculturated and were well-to-do merchants who had owned two lighting-fixture shops in Vienna before they were confiscated. Regina STEIN, the clan's matriarch, bribed officials to get her husband out of Dachau and her son into Switzerland. Her daughter had already escaped to Palestine.
The Swiss promptly dumped Mr. STEIN back into Austria. But his luck changed just two weeks before the Second World War broke out in September, 1939, when he was among thousands of Jewish refugees taken in by Britain.
In London, he worked briefly for British intelligence, transcribing German messages that were later decoded.
Back in Vienna, Mr. STEIN's parents were desperate. They wrote to officials in Canada, reporting that they had been "left without means of assistance and with no possibility of earning a living." They were stateless and penniless and begged to come to this country. "Our distress… increases daily and there is nothing left for us but suicide.… Our only hope for survival is admission to Canada."
But, as detailed in the book None is Too Many, from which the above quote is taken, Ottawa's policy on admitting Jewish refugees was dismal, and the STEINs were turned down. Regina STEIN perished at Treblinka, her husband at Auschwitz.
Their son, meanwhile, was admitted to Canada in the summer of 1940 as a friendly prisoner of war, and he spent four years in an internment camp outside Quebec City. He was then sent to work on a farm near Hamilton, but hated it, and said as much to a stranger who picked him up while hitchhiking. The man drove Mr. STEIN to Toronto, where he was lent $35 by the United Jewish Refugee and War Relief Agency.
He lived in an unheated ground-floor apartment and worked at a plastics company for $13 a week. "Too much to die, too little to live," said his wife of 60 years, Patricia. He spent the next 20 years in a series of business ventures, including children's clothing and hosiery, before finding a place in real estate at the age of 50.
"He had a flair for it," remarked his wife. "He was tenacious, you know. But boy, did he work hard."
Like many who survived that era, Mr. STEIN was resolutely determined to make it in the country that took him in, despite the fact that Canada admitted a paltry 5,000 Jewish refugees from 1933 to 1945. "He harboured no ill will," said his son, Jeffrey. "He loved Canada."
The family is now busy wading through a small mound of war-era documents, many emblazoned with the Nazi eagle-and-swastika rubber stamp, and some in the name of "Theodore Israel SZTEYN," referencing the middle name the Nazis forced Jews to take (it was Sarah for women).
"My father never regarded himself as a victim," his son said. "He used to say that if the Holocaust hadn't happened, he would have become a bum. He said the Holocaust made him a man."
Theodore STEIN was born in Vienna on August 13, 1918. He died in Toronto of Parkinson's Disease on October 22. He was 88. He leaves his wife Patricia, son Jeffrey and four grandchildren.

Tom HODGSON, 81: Passion for art, life
Abstract painter helped revitalize Canadian art
Kid from islands paddled a canoe like few others
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
People always talk about the parties. That's what they remember about Tom HODGSON's life. They happened wherever he lived or in whatever studio he worked -- be it the Pit, as it was called, at King and Church Sts., the house on Shaw Street, where he built a swimming pool in the kitchen, or the storefront on Queen St. W. opposite the mental hospital.
Cold cuts infamously served on the reclining body of a nude woman adorning the buffet table, body-painting women's bare breasts, art student orgies, rich and powerful art patrons swinging on the rope from his studio ceiling.
HODGSON's sons used to drop by to meet girls because there were always women around their dad -- if not the models he hired to pose nude for life drawing classes, then the dewy-eyed students he taught at the Ontario College of Art during the '70s, when mores were exploding in the name of creativity, the muse and the worship of the artist.
You can get away with it when you're also one of Canada's greatest painters, a founder of the audacious Painters Eleven -- the gang of abstract artists who broke the stranglehold of the Group of Seven and revolutionized the Canadian art world, at the same time as you're an Olympic athlete, marathoner, dirt-bike champ and master paddler winning dozens of national championships.
"Tom was a gifted person. Some people are just touched a certain way, but he was very easy about it, not full of himself," said Christopher CUTTS, HODGSON's art dealer.
In 1987, when CUTTS was an upstart on the art scene, a friend arranged a meeting with the artist known as a superb colourist, as well as for his style of action painting -- arm's-length hurling, scraping, pouring oil paints on horizontal canvases on a table surface held in place by an elaborate system of blocks and tackle.
"He had a natural way of dancing on the canvas. He could make it work," CUTTS said.
HODGSON's last solo show was at Cutts's gallery in 1992, the year the artist was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. This year, five days after HODGSON died from the disease -- at 81 on February 27 CUTTS opened a major group show of abstract painters. HODGSON's piece in the show was priced at $30,000.
HODGSON and his kid sister grew up in a 35-room house on Centre Island that their family rented out to tenants. Their father was an insurance broker, a convivial alcoholic who threw parties at their home, known throughout the island as the Hodgson House of Nonsense, according to Jane HODGSON.
"The kids all hung out at the clubhouse on the lagoon," she recalled. "All of us paddled."
But HODGSON was just that much more intense about the sport and much more skilled. When he was 12, it also was clear he was also a talented artist. He began the balancing act between art and athletics that he would maintain for decades.
He trained hard, dodging the ice in Toronto's harbour, winning more than 20 Canadian solo championships. With another islander, Art JOHNSON, and later Bill STEPHENSON, he finished eighth in the tandem at the Helsinki Olympics in 1952 and in ninth place four years later in Melbourne, Australia.
HODGSON married Wilma STEIN, an island girl, and they moved into a house on Centre Island on a lot that extended to the lagoon, where he built a north-facing studio on stilts.
When the property of Centre Island's residents was expropriated in the late '50s, HODGSON moved to the city, becoming very successful in advertising at the same time as he was making a name for himself in the art world with Painters Eleven.
But he walked away from advertising after assessing that he had enough money either to buy a sports car or support himself as an artist for two years. When his marriage ended in 1968, his wife had to get a job to support their four kids. "His life was more important than anybody else and that was hard," said daughter Lise SNAJDR. "He wasn't a good father, but he was a good person in many ways."
"He was not the kind of dad who hugged or kissed you or told you he loved you," said Tim BROADWAY, HODGSON's fifth child, born to Jeannie BROADWAY, an artist. They never married.
Painters Eleven officially disbanded in 1959. By the 1960s and early '70s, HODGSON was a famous artist, as well as a popular teacher at the Ontario College of Art. A nudist, he hosted many parties around the indoor pool at his Shaw St. home. He never had more than three beers, but others did.
"They were orgies," said Neil COCHRANE, an assistant art director at the Toronto Star who was studying at the college then. "That's what happens when you get naked art students, water and drink."
HODGSON met his second wife, Cathy GOOD, when she was his student. She was 19, he 46. He and GOOD moved to a horse farm near Hastings, Ontario, where he built a pond and paddled until 1996, when he went over a dam on the Trent River. By then, Alzheimer's had robbed him of the ability to talk in full sentences or complete a painting.
HODGSON then moved into a care facility and Good to an apartment in Warkworth. He could neither walk nor talk. GOOD, who was devoted to him, visited him three times a day, until her unexpected death last year of an embolism.
HODGSON was saluted by Friends and family at the Balmy Beach Club last month. At one point, one of his Friends shouted, "Here's to Tom," then took off all his clothes (except for his socks) and ran around the whole assembly, past HODGSON's trophies and his art, before sitting down and putting on his clothes.
"Dad would have loved it," SNAJDR said. "But I think he would have preferred it have been a beautiful young woman."

Letter of protest JACOBS' last act
By Royson JAMES
Sometime soon Toronto will decide on a suitable monument to record that Jane JACOBS lived among us and gave much more than she took.
The American anti-expressway activist who moved here in 1968 gave confidence to proponents of a fledgling Toronto movement that, silly them, believed neighbourhoods mattered; people could live harmoniously downtown; a city is for people, not cars; and the citizen is every bit as wise as the city hall planner.
Those themes still ricochet around Toronto. And we can thank JACOBS, who died yesterday, a week shy of her 90th birthday, in her neighbourhood Toronto Western hospital, following a short illness.
JACOBS, who tapped out seven books on a manual typewriter, was working on two manuscripts at her death. Her last book, Dark Age Ahead was a wake-up call on the dangers facing mankind.
When I finally met the oracle, the guru, she was well into her eighth decade on the planet.
Sitting at a table in her living room on Albany Ave., her hand cupped to her ear to aid her failing hearing, she was a frail shell of her once-robust self.
It was like watching Wayne Gretzky or Babe Ruth or Pele in their final season and wondering what it might have been like when occasional brilliance was the staple of their play. We all grow old and die. The great ones change the way we think or live or experience life.
So it is with JACOBS.
In her last public act, she sent off a letter of support to West Vancouver residents battling expansion of the sea to sky highway through an environmentally sensitive region, son Ned reports.
"I wish to convey my support and admiration to people of West Vancouver who are sacrificing their time, energy and possibly even their freedom to preserve and protect the magnificent and irreplaceable Eagleridge Bluffs and Larson Creek wetlands from this destructive, ill-conceived scheme."
That was sent April 17.
She fought lowly planners and New York's famed municipal boss Robert Moses. She railed against highrise towers and cars cutting through neighbourhoods and runaway development that threatened the viability of downtown neighbourhoods. And wherever citizens gave birth to a cause, her name was used to justify the opposition.
That, of course, is a two-edged sword. For many of her Disciples would have been horrified at some of her ideas on the economy, ideas that could be found in any progressive conservative handbook. Maybe that explains why David CROMBIE cherished her so.
Calling from a vacation spot, the former tiny perfect mayor recalled that he was already teaching JACOBS' ideas, penned in The Death and Life of Great American Cities, when he met her in 1968.
"She dealt in a world of ideas and practical application with a sense of right and wrong," CROMBIE said yesterday. "She taught us that while ideas mattered, acting on them was important. And she added an ethical dimension."
Over the past two years, JACOBS has carried on her rants about the evils of city planners. Always, the audience listened with rapt attention.
The irony is, says former Star city columnist David Lewis STEIN, an Annex neighbour, is that JACOBS' Disciples violated one of the guru's principal tenets: avoid orthodoxy.
The idea of protecting neighbourhoods and the expansion of the business district into downtown neighbourhoods saved the downtown as a liveable metropolis. But the corollary is de-concentration. Now they call it urban sprawl.
"She gave us the value of the neighbourhood," STEIN says. "What her Disciples didn't do was build to the next stage… how do you knit them together in a construct like the Greater Toronto Area?"
