Mom charged in kids' deaths
First-degree murder count laid after girls found in bathtub
Tamil community leader calls for more counselling programs
By Curtis RUSH and Nicholas KEUNG, Staff Reporters with files from Bob MITCHELL and the Star Library, Page A2
A 30-year-old Markham woman whose two young daughters were found dead in the family bathtub Thursday night has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Sivananthi ELANGO remains in serious condition in Markham-Stouffville Hospital with self-inflicted slash wounds to her wrists and throat, York Regional police said yesterday.
Without giving specifics, Insp. Tony CUSIMANO said police have found evidence to support the first-degree charge, which implies an act committed with planning and deliberation.
Renu ELANGO, 2, and Movlika ELANGO, 3 months, died Thursday while their father was out on an errand. Their grandparents, who lived with the family, had come home, looked for the girls and heard only silence from the locked en suite bathroom, police sources said.
They summoned a basement tenant for help breaking in and discovered a horrific scene -- the mother bloodied, the children thought to be drowned. The tenant called 911.
CUSIMANO confirmed that paint thinner had been found in the room, but wouldn't comment on its significance.
He said it was too early to speculate on why the tragedy occurred, or whether the woman suffered from depression or post-partum psychosis. The latter, a serious mental health disorder that can appear after childbirth, has been linked to similar murder-suicide attempts.
Police say the family arrived from Sri Lanka around 1990. Neighbours said they had moved into the two-storey Sophia Rd. home, in the McCowan Rd. and 14th Ave. area, around Christmas.
The incident came less than a month after a Toronto man, Huc Minh CHAU, 40, was charged in the slaying of his wife, Shao-Feng LIANG, 38, and their two children. His sister has said she had tried to get CHAU committed to a psychiatric facility.
Since 1990, at least 22 children in Toronto alone have been killed by their mothers, with clinical depression implicated in many cases. Mental health professionals and community workers say the social isolation and lack of support felt by immigrant women may aggravate depression and economic stress that can lead mothers of any background to take such a terrible step.
"In any culture, there's always the social stigmatization associated with mental illness. But in some communities, people don't even have the language and translation (to speak about) mental illnesses," said Martha OCAMPO, of Across Boundaries, a Toronto ethno-racial mental health centre. "It is particularly difficult for the mothers, who are afraid that their kids would be taken away from them. The social expectation that a woman is the caretaker of the household just doesn't help."
David POOPALAPILLAI of the Canadian Tamil Congress said the community has been shocked by the tragedy, which follows an incident in July 2001 in which Jasotha MAHENDRIRAN was charged in the murders of her daughter Shyami, 5, and son Sajeev, 3.
"Even though our community is now more established than when we first came here 20-odd years ago, mental illness and things like post-partum depression are still very new to the community," POOPALAPILLAI said.
"We do need more counselling services. Some people still face the language barrier and have trouble accessing the mainstream services. Right now, we still don't have an expert in this health area in the (Tamil) community."

WRIGHT, Frank Edwin (1917-2006)
Grand Old Man Of Rugby
Frank Edwin WRIGHT of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 at the age of 88 years. 'I was born and raised in King Williams Town, South Africa, which was founded by the 1820 British soldiers on the banks of the Buffalo River. It was an ideal spot with plenty of water, lumber and blue granite. I remember the Holy Trinity Church so well. It is still a majestic structure, well over 150 years old. There I attended Sunday School and eventually became confirmed. How I liked to go to King's market and buy some nice fresh cream to go with the abundance of fresh fruit that supplemented the great variety that grew in our own back garden. There were grapes, guavas, custard apples, figs and pomegranates. We grew everyday vegetables like potatoes, carrots, cabbage and nice lettuce. It was so that one could plant all year around, a good life, indeed. I am proud to have attended Dale College as a 'day pot' meaning a local resident and that is where I developed my love of rugby. It seemed all too soon after graduating from Dale that we found ourselves in uniform and in the Middle East in North Africa. We endured some trying times during 4 years in Prisoner of War camps, first under Italian command and then German. After the war, I was sent to London where I met a beautiful Canadian woman, Irma TOTH. I was successful in persuading her to follow me to South Africa where we were married. We had three children: Frances (Richard POOTMANS,) Kay and Les (Verna.) As my wife pined for her beloved Canada, we decided to move, arriving here in the fall of 1953. Shortly after arriving, several like-minded rugby aficionados got together, placed an ad in the newspaper and were able to locate enough 'foreigners' to form two sides. Rugby was officially introduced to Calgarians! Dad spent his entire life playing and working in various capacities on the local, provincial and national level to promote and grow the game he so dearly loved. A cub leader, the treasurer and enthusiastic campaigner for many years of both provincial and federal Liberal constituencies and candidates, a member of the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and also a recipient of the Queen's Jubilee Medal. Father also enjoyed golf and curling and the time spent with his colleagues at B.A. Oil and Gulf Oil. He was an accomplished writer, the author of many stories and poems penned for the amusement of his rugby buddies. Although he would not win any awards for his vocal performances (other then for his enthusiasm), he loved to sing. He was a good husband, a kind father and the proud grandfather of Becky and Adam. The loss of Irma in October 2003 was eased by the new family of Friends he developed at the Manor at Garrison Woods where he resided for the past several years. He valued these Friendships and the camaraderie to the end. He will be greatly missed by family, including Alice and Fred CRICK, and Peg and Rod RODWAY, his large and beloved 'Bokkie' family and his many Friends world wide. A Celebration of Life will be held at McInnis and Holloway'S, Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Monday, April 10, 2006 at 7: 00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Our thanks to the wonderful paramedics, his doctors and nurses in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at the Foothills Medical Centre and Doctor Kozak at the Rockyview General Hospital. In living memory of Frank WRIGHT, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, Alberta T2S 2L5. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.
