Skier dies after hitting tree
Man succumbed to injuries after being airlifted to Toronto
By Amy LAZAR, Osprey News Network, Wednesday, February 15, 2006
Even though nearly 5,000 people took to the slopes at Mount St. Louis Moonstone resort Sunday, no witnesses: have come forward with information about the death of a skier.
Most people would have been heading home, since the accident occurred around 3 p.m., said general manager Rob HUTER, who, nonetheless, added he was surprised no one saw the accident.
It was a perfect day for skiing. The snow was smooth and groomed, he said, and there was great visibility.
Richard BISHOP, 58, was coming down the Tiroler run, a low intermediate course that is hugged by trees.
A ski patroller found the Scarborough man, who had struck a tree in the row of greenery on the left side of the run.
The patroller called for a trauma kit, and a snow machine went up with staff.
Andre HUTER, director of operations at the resort, said four patrollers were on the scene within minutes.
They performed first aid and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and, by the time BISHOP was brought to the bottom of the hill, an ambulance had arrived.
The ambulance took BISHOP to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital. He was then airlifted to Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre. BISHOP died of his injuries Monday.
“The gentleman had vital signs when he left here, but we knew it was serious because of his head injury,” HUTER said, mentioning there was blood at the scene.
HUTER said they are waiting for more information on what caused the crash.
“We've had another case where someone had a massive coronary and skied off the run,” he said.
A post-mortem examination was performed in Toronto yesterday morning, but police are not releasing any information.
“We're waiting on information so we can figure out if it was a skiing error or a medical condition,” HUTER said.
“We haven't had something like this happen for years. It's an unfortunate accident.&rdquo
Anyone with information can contact Barrie Ontario Provincial Police at 705-726-6484.

Ex-chief an innovator
By Amy LAZAR, Wednesday, July 19, 2006
In 1974, William (Bill) BLANCHE hired Orillia's first policewoman.
He also implemented new technology, successfully lobbied for a new police building and built partnerships between the force, the public and social-awareness clubs.
The city's former police chief, who died peacefully at Soldiers' Memorial Hospital on July 17, was forward-thinking and innovative, said longtime friend and colleague Don MILLER.
"I admired the man because of his honesty, his uprightness, and for what he gave to the country's military service," said Miller.
BLANCHE, a Second World War veteran, served with the Toronto Scottish regiment, Royal Canadian Armed Service Corps, from 1936-45. The longtime resident of Orillia held the position of police chief between 1971 and 1980.
Before he was chief, BLANCHE was promoted to staff sergeant, leaving a vacancy in the forensic identification department.
MILLER trained to take over for him, and they worked together until BLANCHE's retirement in 1980.
They stayed in touch, however, and both attended a police force reunion in June.
A funeral service will take place at Mundell Funeral Home on Friday at 11 a.m.
Members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 34 will gather there for a service at 7 p.m.
Memorial donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer Society.

LAZARIUK, Robert Stephen
By Debbie KESTENBERG, Page A20
Son, brother, uncle, friend, colleague. Born October 30, 1953, in Belleville, Ontario Died December 11, 2005 in Toronto, of colon cancer, aged 52.
In conversation, Robert challenged us and always inspired us with the confidence to express opinions. He listened and he counselled, always generously prefaced with "May I offer some free advice?" He also never failed to tune us up as needed; no one escaped Robert's corrections in English grammar!
He had a certain spark about him and a twinkle in his eye. Whenever you were with Robert you were laughing; and he couldn't resist teasing and getting a reaction from those around him. In some ways, he was a performer. You can only imagine his glee at winning the Toastmasters national speech contest for humour on the topic of, believe it or not, the semi-colon.
Robert was a high achiever; a perfectionist. With enthusiasm, he mastered languages: French, Spanish, and Portuguese, with a little Japanese thrown in. This opened up a whole new world for meeting people and absorbing the best of other cultures. This, combined with his great love of travel, could lead to interesting experiences for his travelling companions. I always laugh remembering the time in Mexico when I, unilingual, watched from the sidelines as hope grew for the timeshare sales person, as Robert enthusiastically practised his Spanish for over an hour! Once personally established, Robert used his talents to help others to achieve their dreams including doctors in Latin America now able to give back in their own ways.
Born in Belleville, Robert earned his B. Sc. and M. Sc. degrees at the Universities of Guelph and Manitoba, respectively, and a B.A. in Spanish from the University of Ottawa. He lived in Montreal, then in Ottawa; more recently returning to Toronto to be close to family.
Robert was in the prime of his life and just about to leave for a two-year stint in Guatemala, a hard-won posting with the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, when news of late-stage colon cancer stopped him in his tracks. Never one to be down for long, Robert still dreamed of travel and even bought and expertly decorated a new home.
His network of Friends also continued to grow throughout his last year. His innate ability to connect instantly with people on a very personal and intimate level was even evident during trips to Princess Margaret Hospital with his sister. In her observation, no matter how sick he might have been feeling, he was always buoyed by a smile or a kind word from a stranger. His invitation to another would be a smile, a word of encouragement or, just as likely, an irreverent crack or a probing question. And so, he would enjoy either "a Friendship with no tomorrow" or the beginning of a deep and lasting Friendship.
With characteristic enthusiasm, despite his prognosis, Robert continued to make the most of his days. In his near-to-last e-mail to me, Robert, who loved to dance -- especially salsa -- proudly celebrated his momentarily renewed energy after chemo treatments. In his own words: "I danced and made my partner tired on the weekend. Trivial to somebody who has his/her health, but I was so happy to be dancing as if I never stopped. I remember so vividly the days where I could not envisage good health, even to do something as simple as walk down the street."
It was important to Robert that his death has meaning and purpose just as his life did. His final moments were filled with laughter, tears, singing, and resolution. Surrounded by those he loved, Robert died as he lived -- with a smile.
Debbie KESTENBERG is a friend and a great admirer of Robert's family and wide circle of Friends.

William LAZENBY: Mayor of Richmond Hill
Ran for office to help get streets paved
A pharmacist, he delivered even at night
By San GREWAL, Staff Reporter
William Charles LAZENBY, a former mayor of Richmond Hill, entered politics for one reason: To get the roads in his budding community paved so families wouldn't have to walk through the mud.
He moved to the town in the late '50s, when much of what is now the heart of Richmond Hill was just being developed. LAZENBY quickly fell in love with the tight-knit community and wanted other residents to feel equally proud of the place where they lived.
"He just didn't have enough hours in the day to do all the things he wanted to do," said Evelyn LAZENBY, his wife of 54 years. LAZENBY died last week of a heart attack.
After opening Allencourt Pharmacy in 1959, the University of Toronto pharmacy school graduate juggled his business with his political career and decades of community service.
"He loved his customers at the pharmacy," his wife said. "They were like an extended family to him."
Sending flowers to widows on Valentine's Day and attending all of his customers' funerals were just some of the acts that endeared LAZENBY to the thousands of people who stepped through his door.
"I was one of his first customers," said Patrick McNAMARA, who moved to Richmond Hill in 1958.
"If you were sick or your family was sick, no matter what the time was, Bill would get you your medicine."
Other long-time customers spoke of receiving baby formula from LAZENBY after running out in the middle of the night.
Evelyn LAZENBY recalled a trip to a summer camp just a couple of months ago to deliver much-needed medicine.
His children, daughters Carolynne and Christine and son Bill, said their father received offers from large chains for his pharmacy.
"He wasn't interested in the money," his son said. "He wanted a pharmacy that felt like one in a small-town community."
His father was elected as councillor in 1964, served for six years, then became mayor from 1970 to 1974. He was also very active in community public service as a volunteer for numerous organizations. In 1983, he and his wife were named Richmond Hill citizens of the year.
"The reason he entered politics was because he saw all the young mothers pushing their kids through the mud and snow," his wife said. "I pushed Christine down what's Bayview now and held Carolynne in my arms. It was terrible."
The three siblings talk about the development taking place now, explaining how their father cautioned against growth that wasn't planned properly.
"He was a big defender of green spaces and parks," Bill LAZENBY said. "I don't think he would like a lot of what's happening now. He was all about proper planning for the community, so people would be happy."
