Fatal chase sparks questions deaths
By Canadian Press, Mon., June 4, 2007
Toronto -- The loss of three more young lives from a north Toronto community has grieving parents demanding answers from the government as to how the latest tragedy could have been prevented.
Barely a week after 15-year-old Jordan MANNERS was shot dead inside his high school, a weeping Jannett SCOTT- JONES was told her daughter, 17-year-old Aleisha Ashley, was "brain-dead" and nothing could be done to save her.
The teenager had been in intensive care since early Saturday morning after a taxi she was riding in with her best friend, Monique McKNIGHT, 16, was struck by a teenage boy fleeing police in a stolen car.
McKNIGHT was killed, as was the stolen car's driver, 15-year-old Chevon JOSEPHS.
"I don't understand why three lives have to be lost because the police are chasing after a 15-year-old," SCOTT- JONES said as family and Friends tried to console her.
"Now a 15-year-old is dead, my daughter is dead and Monique is dead."
She questioned the wisdom of a police chase on city streets and demanded action to prevent similar tragedies.
"Does this sound like police that are here to serve and protect?"
SCOTT- JONES said the two girls were on their way home after watching television with Aleisha's aunt.

Farm life taught veteran importance of helping
By Vera OVANIN, Sun Media, Sun., July 8, 2007
When Second World War veteran Frederick JONES learned his friend's mother was ticketed for parking in a wheelchair-designated spot despite having a handicapped sticker on her car, he took it up with the city hall -- and won.
"That was the type of person that he was," said friend Sandra COLLIER, who volunteered with JONES at the Riverview Group Kiwanis Club for almost 10 years.
"He was very conscious of detail and he was very helpful."
JONES died of heart failure on June 21 in the Perley-Rideau Veterans' Health Centre in Ottawa.
He was 88.
JONES's spent his early years on several farms in Southwestern Ontario.
"My father was taught all the values that were part of farming life, to hang in there when things were tough, and to be as helpful as you could and honest as you could," said Kathy JONES, his eldest daughter.
"They translated into his life and he was very well rounded.
"My sisters and I would often joke that he could fix anything with a piece of wire and a Swiss army knife."
JONES enrolled in mechanical engineering at the University of Toronto, but took a break to join the Royal Air Force in 1941, where he became a pilot.
"When Poland was invaded, he was absolutely enraged. He felt Nazis had taken too much territory," his daughter said.
Soon after, JONES enlisted and trained others to fly Tiger Moths, Harvards and Spitfires before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in Britain.
Postwar, he obtained his engineering degree and rejoined the Royal Canadian Air Force, retiring from the forces as a lieutenant colonel in 1970, before working in the University of Western Ontario's office of the registrar until 1983.
He also volunteered with community groups, including Meals on Wheels.
JONES was known for creating H.E.L.P., a London program that ensure lists of seniors' medications are placed where emergency personnel can find them.
He was active with the Oakridge Presbyterian Church, where he enjoyed making music with the bell choir.
JONES is survived by daughters Kathy, Susan, Janis, Patricia and Rosemary. son Peter died in infancy.
"My father always treated us no differently because we were girls," said Janis JONES, an Ottawa architect. "He suggested to me to go into engineering and always took us camping,"
JONES's wife, Lillian, to whom he was married for 54 years, died of cancer in 1995.

BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.

Pat was born in Campbellford, Ontario, May 20, 1913, and was the only daughter of Alphonsus and Alice BRADY.

Pat will always be remembered for her ease as a gracious hostess in Hamilton, Montreal, Toronto and Naples.
