'Real team player' lived dream as officer
Ken DEANE is recalled as a 'top, top cop,' despite his public persona.
By Joe MATYAS and April KEMICK, Free Press Reporters, Mon., February Long before Ken DEANE became infamous as the Ontario Provincial Police sniper who fatally shot Dudley GEORGE at Ipperwash, he was a London teen who wanted to be a police officer.
He was a bright student and energetic athlete who emerged as a leader in his teens, high school friend Tim HUFF once told The Free Press.
DEANE was in Grade 12 at South secondary school when he decided he wanted to get into law enforcement, said HUFF, adding he pounded a beat for the London police force in the 1980s after taking law and security at Fanshawe College.
A few years later, DEANE applied to the Ontario Provincial Police tactics and rescue unit and was accepted, eventually becoming part of an explosives disposal team.
But for people like HUFF, DEANE was a guy who remained in touch with old Friends.
There were annual weekends with the guys in cottage country, where DEANE would be a highlight with stories about police work.
Family and Friends will miss him deeply, brother-in-law Grant TEEPLE of Aylmer said yesterday in reaction to DEANE's sudden death in a highway crash on Saturday.
DEANE's death was a shock, he said, adding family and Friends had a chance to enjoy his company at a gathering "up north" a few days ago.
DEANE wasn't the guy portrayed in the media, TEEPLE said. TEEPLE wouldn't say what DEANE did after he left the Ontario Provincial Police.
DEANE's public persona is connected to the shooting of GEORGE at Ipperwash on September 6, 1995, his subsequent court conviction for criminal negligence causing death in 1997 and his dismissal from the Ontario Provincial Police for discreditable police conduct in 2002.
London lawyer Norm PEEL, who knew DEANE for years before representing him in his criminal trial, said yesterday he was a model police officer whose reputation was wrongly tarnished.
"I still hold my strongest view that he was just a top, top cop," PEEL said. "I have nothing but absolute respect for him. Always will."
DEANE had a reputation among other officers for being a "real team player," PEEL said. "His whole story of his life was about helping people. He had a model background."
During his trial, DEANE testified that he saw muzzle flashes the light of gunfire -- come from some bushes during a confusing skirmish.
He said he shot GEORGE after he stepped out of the bushes with a gun.
In convicting DEANE on April 27, 1997, Judge Hugh FRASER rejected his testimony and those of other police officers as fabricated.
The verdict surprised members of the GEORGE family.
But their feelings that justice had been done were dashed on July 3, 1997, when FRASER gave DEANE a conditional sentence of two years less a day with 180 hours of community service.
Cries of "murderer, murderer" filled the courtroom after the sentence as members of the GEORGE family wept.

Kenneth DEANE, Officer And Security Expert (1960-2006)
Former Ontario Provincial Police officer enjoyed a promising career in a paramilitary squad until he shot and killed native protester Dudley GEORGE in 1995. He left the force in 2002 and died in a traffic accident on Saturday
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Kenneth DEANE's life was changed -- some would say ruined -- by an incident that's now known as Ipperwash. On September 6, 1995, he shot and killed Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE at Ontario's Ipperwash Provincial Park during what was Canada's most important Indian protest since Quebec's Oka crisis of 1990.
Until that night, Mr. DEANE of the Ontario Provincial Police had an exemplary record, one that had helped smooth his way into the exclusive ranks of the Ontario Provincial Police's tactical rescue unit. As acting sergeant, he was leading a highly trained, four-man team of marksmen on the night he shot Mr. GEORGE.
"The whole sequence took place in 20, 30, 35 seconds," Mr. DEANE said at his trial in July of 1997. He was convicted of criminal negligence causing death. In his 2001 book, One Dead Indian, Toronto Star reporter Peter EDWARDS recounted the Ontario Provincial Police officer's description of what led up to the shooting. Mr. DEANE said he saw flashes of light coming from the barrel of a weapon inside a school bus that protesters were using to barge into an Ontario Provincial Police riot squad.
"It was an attempt to shoot a police officer," he told the court. However, he chose not to open fire because of the many officers who were in the way. "I saw a distinct muzzle flash originate from the interior of the bus."
The book went on to describe the actual firing of the weapon and Mr. DEANE's testimony that Mr. GEORGE was armed and had presented a threat. "I observed him shoulder a rifle and in a half-crouched position, scanned [the rifle] over our position." Mr. DEANE said he fired three shots from his highly accurate, Heckler and Koch sub-machine gun "as quick as I could."
"He [Mr. GEORGE] immediately went down on one knee and immediately got back up."
Still on the road, Mr. GEORGE looked to his right and left and walked a few steps, Mr. DEANE testified. He then did something rather odd for someone who was mortally wounded, with a broken collar bone, cracked ribs and a punctured lung, Mr. DEANE said. He testified that Mr. GEORGE raised his arm and threw the rifle into a grass-covered field, leaving himself unarmed and exposed to police fire.
Although Mr. DEANE had provided a detailed description of the rifle, another tactical rescue unit officer who was just metres away during the incident testified that he had observed Mr. GEORGE holding "a pole or stick." The officer also said that the only muzzle flashes he saw had come from his own gun. Hundreds of other shots were fired that night, all by the police, and the Ontario Provincial Police has since arrived at the view that the protesters were not armed.
For his part, Mr. DEANE fired a total of seven shots. Four had been aimed at other protesters and three at Mr. GEORGE. One bullet missed, one struck him in the lower leg, and the last found his torso.
Though Mr. DEANE spoke in a calm and self-assured manner, the judge at his trial did not believe him. Mr. Justice Hugh FRASER as much as called him a liar and ruled that Mr. GEORGE had been unarmed. He rejected the notion that Mr. DEANE had an "honest but mistaken belief" and found that Mr. GEORGE did not have a weapon when he was killed. He said Mr. DEANE had concocted his evidence "in an ill-fated attempt to disguise the fact that an unarmed man had been shot."
Judge FRASER, who also ruled that some other police officers had falsified evidence to support Mr. DEANE, found him guilty and sentenced him to a conditional sentence of two years less a day, plus 180 days of community service but no house arrest.
Mr. DEANE appealed the conviction to the Supreme Court of Canada. In February, 2000, the court ruled there were no grounds for a new trial. He did win a small victory, however. The Supreme Court denied an appeal by Crown prosecutors who had sought jail time instead of the conditional sentence.
"I still believe Ken DEANE was an honest police office who was hard done by by the justice system," lawyer Norman PEEL, who had represented Mr. DEANE at the trial, said yesterday. "He was misjudged as being cold and withdrawn when, in fact, he was just quiet." After the conviction, Mr. DEANE continued in the Ontario Provincial Police. Among other things, he was a bomb-disposal expert and a specialist in fighting biker gangs and terrorists. His fellow officers came to his defence, believing he had been victimized.
"He was an asset to the Ontario Provincial Police," said Inspector Robert BRUCE, who at that time believed Mr. DEANE "should remain in the position that he's in."
But Ipperwash continued to haunt Mr. DEANE.
"I sincerely apologize to the family and Friends of Dudley GEORGE and to his community for causing the terrible loss that they have been forced to endure," he said at a discipline hearing in September of 2001. For all that, he always maintained he had done nothing wrong the night Mr. GEORGE was shot and he fought to stay on the force.
It was a battle he lost. In October, 2001, he pleaded to a charge of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act. Four months later, an inquiry by police adjudicator Loyall CANN forced him to resign. Ms. CANN, a former deputy chief of the Toronto police force, said the shooting of Mr. GEORGE had resulted in "the most serious conviction" ever recorded against an Ontario Provincial Police officer.
"What could possibly be more shocking to society than to have a sworn, fully trained and experienced police officer, while on duty, in full uniform [and] using a police-issued firearm, kill an unarmed citizen," said Ms. CANN.
She ordered him to resign or be fired. He quit the next day and later found a job working in security at an Ontario Hydro nuclear station. More recently, he was Canadian sales manager for Canadian Allen-Vanguard Response Systems, a publicly traded company that provides state-of-the-art anti-terrorist equipment and systems.
Kenneth DEANE grew up in London, Ontario, the son of the late Robert DEANE and Katherine DEANE. One of six children, he had long dreamed of being a policeman. After leaving high school, he studied law and security at Fanshawe College and then joined the London police force. He was next accepted by the Ontario Provincial Police and quickly became involved with the tactical rescue unit, the special squad deployed in hostage-taking situations and in emergencies.
At his trial, a fellow officers described the patience Mr. DEANE had displayed during a hostage situation in Dryden, Ontario, when a man with a rifle threatened two women. The incident ended without violence. "He does not react emotionally, said Staff Sergeant Brian DEEVY, also a member of the tactical rescue unit. "I have never seen him lose control."
Mr. DEANE had also served with Ontario Provincial Police officers sent to help deal with the Oka crisis, and in 1991 had attended an incident at Grassy Narrows in Northern Ontario when an Ontario Provincial Police officer was shot dead.
The killing of Mr. GEORGE caused an outcry against the tactics and actions of the Ontario Provincial Police and the government of Ontario. It triggered the Ipperwash inquiry that has been sitting since July of 2004 under Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN. Mr. DEANE was scheduled to appear at the hearing next month and his testimony was keenly anticipated.
In the type of coincidence that feeds conspiracy theorists, Mr. DEANE is the third Ontario Provincial Police officer involved in the Dudley GEORGE shooting to be killed in a traffic accident. Sgt. Margaret EVE, who tried to negotiate with the natives at Ipperwash before the shooting, died in a crash involving a transport truck on Highway 401 near Chatham, Ontario Inspector Dale LINTON, the commander who gave the orders to Mr. DEANE's team, was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Smith's Falls in October of Mr. DEANE was killed in a traffic accident on Highway 401 near Prescott in Eastern Ontario. Snow squalls had caused vehicles to slow or come to a halt and his Ford Explorer clipped a tractor trailer that was blocking the road. Before he could extricate his vehicle, a second highway truck travelling behind him was unable to stop and the sport utility vehicle was crushed.
Kenneth DEANE was born in October of 1960. He died on February 25, 2006. He was 45. He leaves his wife, Lucie SIROIS. Also an Ontario Provincial Police officer, she was injured some years ago while investigating a traffic accident. Additionally, he leaves his brother Bill and sisters Barbara, Nancy, Sue and Judy. A funeral is set for 11 a.m. tomorrow in Sudbury, Ontario

KELLY, Dr. Norman Henry, M.D.
(September 17, 1921-January 8, 2006)
"Love between two children of God outlives the union, outlives failing bodies, outlives the earth itself. Love, in whatever celestial form it takes in heaven, lives on after the earthly shell has passed into dust. For the one who believes, death changes "goodbye" into other more hopeful words. I will see you soon my love. I cannot bring you back to me, but I can come to you. And I will." And he has. Norman KELLY died peacefully at home to join his beloved wife, Helen, of 60 years in the fourth mansion on the right just inside the Pearly Gates. Norm served both his country in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2, and his community as a family doctor. He will be sadly missed by his loving son Robert, beloved granddaughters Sheila Anne KELLY (mother Mary Ellen JAMIESON) and Katrina Kato KELLY (mother Dr. Christine KATO,) daughter-in-law Barbara DATLEN- KELLY and her son James DATLEN (David CLEGHORN,) sisters and brothers-in-law Marie PRITCHARD, Kay and Charlie PEEVER, Joan and Bernie O'DONNELL, Grace MASON, Leo McCARTHY, Tom ROBERTS and many nieces and nephews.
