Port Credit woman dies in Cty. Rd. 124 crash
Three sent to General and Marine with injuries
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 69-year-old Port Credit woman is dead following an automobile crash on Cty. Rd. 124 around noon Sunday.
Isabel KAY was killed when the green 2004 Jaguar CX3 she was a passenger in collided with a blue 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, near Nottawasaga Sideroad 12/13.
KAY was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman's husband, Archibald KAY, 73, was driving the Jaguar and injured in the crash. He was transported by ambulance to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital with what police call serious injuries.
Also sent to hospital with minor injuries was Stacey CUMMING, 34, and Daniel CUMMING, 13, both of Badjeros. The two were riding in the Silverado.
Emergency workers said they learned of the mishap when a police officer stumbled upon it while responding to another call. Along with police and paramedics, members of the Clearview Fire Department were on scene as well.
Mark KINNEY a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, could not say if weather conditions played a role in causing the crash.
However, a motorist who happened upon the scene moments after the collision told The Stayner Sun there was snow falling and slush on the road.
Police had County Rd. 124 closed for about three hours while they conducted an investigation. While officers are still looking into the matter, they do have a general sense of what happened, Kinney said.
He explained that the southbound Jaguar passed a transport truck. Pulling back into its lane, the car hit the west shoulder and then veered back into the northbound lane, at which time the Jaguar and Silverado made contact.
Mariane McLEOD, a spokesperson for General and Marine Hospital, said Monday afternoon that KAY is listed in stable condition. There was no information available regarding Stacey and Daniel CUMMING.

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

Winning the great race of life
Mensa member had zest for life
'An intellectual who liked to party"
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A legend among his Friends and family, Bruce HUGHES was the bachelor always up for a beer or a party. For years at the Boston Marathon, and here in Toronto, he was the runner in the white bowler hat, the one who crossed the finish line usually under three hours despite -- or he might say because of -- the fact he'd been drinking till all hours the night before.
He was a darn good marathoner and he was also an enthusiastic member of the Hogtown Hash Hound Harriers, the Toronto chapter of a worldwide group that cheerfully bills itself as "an international drinking club with a running problem."
As Wild Bill, he was an often cranky, always trenchant regular on the Lonely Planet's forum -- more than 6,000 posts in four years -- and was never shy about telling what he knew and thought about Cuba, a country he loved but by which he was never fooled. His Havana pub crawl had become as famous as its opening sentence: "This pub crawl has been used several times and is totally reliable in obtaining the desired result -- a moderate state of inebriation."
And then there were the stories. Everybody, it seems, has a Bruce HUGHES story.
They may be set in Saigon, Pamplona or Gerona, but somehow they all involve HUGHES miraculously avoiding being gored by a bull, beaten up by an irate cyclo driver or a drunk Italian tourist, and they all end with HUGHES having a beer and a good laugh which is what some 60 or so of his Friends did at his wake last month at Dora Keogh's pub.
"Bruce was an intellectual who liked to party. Three hundred years go he would have been the smartest buccaneer in the Caribbean," said Alan KAY, HUGHES' friend for almost 40 years.
Indeed, HUGHES, 59, was a member of Mensa, a Winnipeg native who was a grad of York University's M.B.A. program, and a successful marketing strategist who at 50 had been financially able to retire and play the stock market.
And smart enough to take charge and go into project manager mode when told his diagnosis of cancer.
"He was an amazing human being before and after he was sick, said KAY.
Originally diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff in January 2004, HUGHES had been in such pain he considered cancelling his trip to Cuba, but didn't.
He told Friends later he discovered that a Cuban cigar was the best antidote for pain.
Back in Toronto, he learned it was cancer and that the primary source was his right kidney. He later joked that although his type of cancer often affects the liver, his didn't. "Guess mine was pickled," he'd say.
But he was in tears when he phoned his friend Ron MEREDITH- JONES and told him his diagnosis.
MEREDITH- JONES, a consultant to the Ministry of Health, Ontario Medical Association and Physicians' Services Committee, and HUGHES teamed up to gather information and discuss appointments.
He had been given four months to live -- "But he never wrote that date on the wall for a countdown," said his sister, Janice and one, then two, years later he was living full out. He had his regular beer and books meetings with Friends like Kay at Allen's, he organized a reunion of old Friends from his working days in Montreal, Toronto and Atlanta at Grossman's Tavern, he made new ones at a couple of pubs near his condo in The Beach.
He returned to a childhood interest in stamp collecting and got involved with his condo committee. He sent out regular email updates. His last one, dated mid-July 2006, is a typically businesslike and mischievous -- missive.
"What I'll comment on is an overview of the body, the treatments, side effects and finally what else is going on in my life," he wrote in his introduction.
Under the heading "The rest of my life" he wrote: "What's the point of going through all this, if there is nothing else happening in your life? Sometimes I admit it now feels like the point of my existence is this damn disease. Got to stay focused that the point is to minimize its impact... It's The Rest Of The Stuff That's Important... Even The Little Stuff."
And so last February, although considerably weakened and wracked by pain, he and Rennie SMITH (who is married to HUGHES' sister Janice) went to Cuba, where everybody knew him and where his girlfriend Danay, a medical student, and her son -- a 3-year-old named Yeison he had once thought, hoped, was his -- were living.
"Your girl ain't different," HUGHES the curmudgeon often wrote on the Cuba chatline to lovesick men. "I've paid for every piece of knowledge I have about Cuba and the Cubans."
And he had paid for the blood test that determined he wasn't Yeison's father, but still they dined with him every night during his last time in Cuba and he adored the boy. He'd been determined to visit Cuba because he had a significant amount of money he wanted to give Danay to build herself a home.
Back in Toronto, he was still making plans. He was going to his sister's cottage in Gimli at the end of August and see his three adult nephews there.
On Friday July 21, MEREDITH- JONES took him for a chemotherapy session and then back to his home, where HUGHES sat on the kitchen stool and swapped recipes with MEREDITH- JONES' wife. He bragged of drinking half a bottle of wine, although MEREDITH- JONES said it was only a few sips, and the two Friends talked about philosophy, Friendship and their Friends on the way home. MEREDITH- JONES watched him walk into his condo building.
The next morning HUGHES called him. "Jones-y, I'm in trouble," he said. MEREDITH- JONES raced over, but HUGHES wanted to wait it out, an hour, before calling for help. After 45 minutes, he allowed MEREDITH- JONES to call 911. "Don't make it a big deal," he ordered.
When more than a half dozen firefighters, paramedics and ambulance people responded to his call, HUGHES turned to his friend and said, "You idiot."
His sister and husband flew in from Winnipeg, KAY and MEREDITH- JONES, their wives and other Friends hovered by HUGHES' bedside, massaging his legs. HUGHES ran marathons in the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and in 2000, five decades, and he used to say he was aiming for six.
"He was treating it like a marathon. He didn't want to go," said MEREDITH- JONES. "He kept saying 'Okay.' Every few seconds. 'Okay.' The way marathoners do to get themselves to the end."
It came Sunday, July 23, at about 5 p.m., after MEREDITH- JONES told HUGHES: " You can go now."

Body found in parking lot
34-year-old Owen Sound man charged with manslaughter
By Jonathon JACKSON with files from Michael DEN TANDT and Bill HENRY, Page A1
An Owen Sound man has been charged with manslaughter after the death of an Owen Sound businessman died after what police believe may have been an "altercation" Monday night.
James MORELLI, 34, has been remanded in custody pending a bail hearing today. He was charged after William "Larry" HILSDEN was found unconsciious in a downtown parking lot Monday night.
Two people were originally taken into custody Tuesday, but one was later released.
Chief Tom KAYE of the Owen Sound Police Services said earlier Tuesday, before any charges had been laid, that police were " investigating it as though there were foul play involved, but to what extent that is, we don't know."
Yellow crime scene tape cordoned off a large section of the municipal parking lot behind the Golden Sand restaurant, formerly the Ritz Cafe, on Tuesday.
Const. Chantelle BEIRNES of the Mount Forest-based Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Identification Unit and acting Capt. Greg SCOTT of Owen Sound Fire and Emergency Services filmed the lot from an aerial fire truck.
James MORTON lives in an apartment above the restaurant. He said in an interview he was returning from a walk Monday night when he saw two men in the parking lot. One was lying on the ground next to the open driver's door of a truck, his legs under the vehicle.
"I thought the other guy had beat him up or something," MORTON said, "but he said, 'I found him like this and I can't get a pulse.' I tried and I couldn't get one either."
MORTON said the first man called 911. Emergency services worked on the unconscious man for some time before moving him to the Owen Sound hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of death was not released by police and hospital staff declined to provide that information. Police said in a news release Tuesday night an autopsy will be performed in London on Thursday.
Darlene NELSON, a server at the Golden Sand restaurant, said HILSDEN was a regular customer at the restaurant, eating there between five and seven days a week.
"He was my landlord for six years and I love him dearly," NELSON said.
She said HILSDEN, 61, ate a late meal Monday and left through the rear entrance at about 10 p.m. According to a news release from the city police, he was found unconscious approximately 30 minutes later in the parking lot.
Few other details have been released but acting Staff Sgt. Vince WURFEL said in the news release police would like to speak to anyone who "may have witnessed an altercation in the municipal parking lot in the 900 block of 3rd Avenue East."
People are asked to call the police at 519-376-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
HILSDEN owned a number of residential properties and businesses in and near Owen Sound over the years. They included a restaurant along the East Bayshore Road, a downtown home electronics store called Hilsden Sight and Sound and the Ted and Grace's snack bar at the corner of 2nd Avenue and 14th Street West. He was in the process of rebuilding Ted and Grace's after a 2004 fire gutted the landmark.
"He was always a good employer to work for," said Jamie JOHNSTON, who worked for several years at Hilsden Sight and Sound. "He always treated us good… even when times were tough, he always made sure I got paid."
HILSDEN's brother, Ronald HILSDEN, said Tuesday the family did not wish to comment.

McAVITY, John Malcolm
Of Vancouver died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family, at 10: 00 o'clock on the morning of July 12, 2006. Born on July 18, 1917, John grew up in Rothesay, New Brunswick, attended Rothesay Collegiate, and subsequently Royal Military College, Kingston, quickly followed by service in England, Italy and the low countries during the Second War. John is survived by his loving wife of sixty four years, Adine (Dids) McAVITY (née OLAND,) his son Eric Oland (Judith MAXWELL) of Canmore, Alberta, his daughters Frances Denise HAZEN of Vancouver and Catherine Martha DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS (John KAYE) of North Saanich, British Columbia and his granddaughter Martha ELYSE of Canmore, Alberta. He was predeceased by his eldest son J.P. Malcolm (Patricia McAVITY née GIBSON) of North Saanich in 2001, by his parents Frances Edith HAZEN and Thomas Malcolm McAVITY in 1933 and 1944 respectively, and by his two younger brothers, Douglas Malcolm of Greenwich, Connecticut and Peter Malcolm of St Louis, Missouri. Dad started his post war working life with his cousin Hugh MacKAY in Saint John, New Brunswick, in a profession in which he spent his entire working life, and which culminated with RBC Dominion Securities in Vancouver in 1986. As a volunteer in his adopted west coast community, Dad served with great dedication as a director and chair of the board of the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society and also as a director and chair of the Board of Governors of Shawnigan Lake School. Dad maintained a life long interest in his woodwork shop, his garden, the Cook Gun Club at Vedder Crossing, fishing at Pennask Lake and most importantly, in maintaining his close connection with so many many Friends, all of which gave him immense pleasure. In his later years, Dad suffered with kidney failure and spent the last ten years of his life as a patient at the dialysis unit at Vancouver General Hospital. During this time he was lovingly supported by so many Friends: the "fly boys" who faithfully drove him to and from so many of his dialysis appointments, and to his care givers, Rudy, Maria and Fatima and Dino. A special thanks to Rev. Kevin Dixon and Bishop Jim Cruickshank of Saint Mary's Kerrisdale, to Doctor A.B. (Tony) Wilson and to Dad's palliative care team, Shirley, Lea and Rose-Marie, all of whom so graciously assisted Dad/Grampa on the final leg of his life's journey.

BURK/BURKE, James (né KAPHALAKOS) (September 16, 1917-October 15, Writer - Editor - Novelist Longest-living Canadian Paraplegic
James BURK/BURKE would be the last to want his disability given any billing. Yet in the view of his considerable achievements it enhances his successful challenge of life. It is a mark of distinction. He was born in Toronto the son of Peter KAPHALAKOS (Peloponnesus, Greece) and Florence COCHRANE, Toronto. If heritage counts, he exhibited the strength and stoicism of a Spartan combined with the humour of the Irish. All his youth he excelled in academic standing, he was a voracious reader, lover of classic music, and a regular at the 'Y' (1939 Bronze Medal in the Jr. Ontario Championships). Later he took flying instructions out of the Toronto Island Airport. He was about to get his private license, when he was a passenger in an auto accident in 1940, before seat belts were in use. Rehabilitation or social programs for civilian paraplegics were nonexistent. He spent 7 years in hospitals permanently confined to a wheelchair. In an interview much later he said simply: 'I have a rather undistinguished past.' On release he pursued a career in freelance writing, book reviewing and editing for Canadian magazines, newspapers and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He wrote everything from short stories to commercial copy. He edited the journal of the Canadian Paraplegic Association for some 8 years. In 1951 he married actress Laddie DENNIS. They honeymooned in Mexico. Throughout their marriage they took numerous car journeys sharing the driving in the U.S. and Canada. They moved to Scarborough in 1955 and rescued an unfinished renovation of a building on the historic site of the Falcon Inn. Doing the contracting himself, BURK/BURKE did such a good job it was written up by most of the Toronto papers. The 11-room house sits in a woods with a spring fed stream and terraced lawns. It has remained their home to this day. He published his first novel "Flee Seven Ways" in Great Britain (by Hutchinson with distribution in Canada), in the U.S. (Pantheon) and in a German translation (Rauch). It received high praise from top publications: The Times Literary Supplement, The Irish Times, Punch magazine, New Yorker magazine, Sunday New York Herald Tribune, etc. Robert Moses, President of The New York World's Fair 1964-65 wrote of his admiration, and long time friend Marshall McLuhan predicted 'It is a picaresque scenario that will be snapped up by an alert movie enterprise.' And so it was that the Burkes flew to London in 1963 where he wrote the movie script. Given the vagaries of filmdom it did not come to fruition. However, an unexpected contract with the British Broadcasting Corporation resulted in his writing a radio script of the classic "Diary Of A Madman" by Gogol. It was given repeated airings with film actor Kenneth Williams. In 1969 his second novel was published in Britain "The Firefly Hunt" (Collins). Again it was embraced by reviewers, especially in the British press, including a long one in The Times Literary Supplement. 'A sparkling Romancandle of a fantasy' - Argosy United Kingdom called it. He started a third novel but serious health problems diminished the long term energy needed for the project. In his last days he was cheered to hear that his novels are still selling on the Internet. He died in a Toronto hospital with his wife of 55-years holding his hand, following a ferocious 5-week battle. According to his wishes he was buried in The Scarborough Historical Society's Bethel Pioneer Cemetery in a private family ceremony on October 24. There will be a tree planting in the Spring to honour his remarkable life. He is survived by brothers Paul and Peter, a nephew Christopher, a niece Paula BASTONE and sisters-in-law Mary KAYE of Montreal and Mae KAPHALAKOS of Toronto. He was predeceased by his brothers Jack (3-weeks before at 93 years) of Montreal and George KAPHALAKOS (1988) of Toronto. 'Now Jim, you can really fly. May angels ride on your wings.' - Bill McVean
