Gunfire outbreak yields six casualties in 10 days
By Tim SHUFELT, Page A9
The shooting of Munit WALIA on Monday in the city's west end capped off a 10-day outbreak of fatal gunfire, pushing the number of gun-related homicides to levels not seen since the so-called "year of the gun" in 2005.
Police found Mr. WALIA, 27, around 9 p.m. in his car suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the Martingrove Road and Finch Avenue West area. He was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police are now investigating whether he uttered the names of his attackers in the voice mail message he was leaving his pregnant girlfriend moments before he was shot.
Nobody has yet been charged in the death of Mr. WALIA, as is the case in four of the six shooting fatalities in the last 10 days.
The killing of Kimel FOSTER, 21, outside the Town Talk Restaurant and Bar near Vaughan Road and Oakwood Avenue, kicked off a bloody weekend in the early morning hours of July 21. Mr. FOSTER died from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, while a second victim survived.
The next morning, 11-year-old Ephraim BROWN died from a bullet to the neck, followed by the separate shootings of Shawn JAMES and Amin AAFI. First-degree murder charges were laid against two people last week in the death of Mr. JAMES, 31, who police say was killed by shots fired from the window of a Beck taxicab near Wellesley and Sherbourne Streets. Police are still searching for a third suspect.
Mr. AAFI, 24, arrived at hospital after shots rang out in Flirt Lounge in the nightclub district. He died from a single gunshot wound, while a second man was treated at hospital for a shot to the leg.
The next casualty was 25-year-old Michael GEORGE, described as a well-liked aspiring rapper, who was targeted as he exited his car in the Meadowvale Road and Finch Avenue West area on Sunday. Mr. GEORGE was not known to police.
In addition to the arrests stemming from the death of Mr. JAMES, police have also charged two people with first-degree murder in the Ephraim BROWN case. The other homicides are under investigation and police are searching for suspects.

Wiarton's Tom NORRIS dies at 68
Entrepreneur had drive to help others
By Tara BOWIE, Wednesday, June 06, 2007
A man who Friends and family said had a life ambition to help others died suddenly Monday at his home in Wiarton.
Tom NORRIS, described as an icon, a pillar in the community, an entrepreneur, a hard worker and a loving family man, died of a heart attack at 68.
For more than 40 years Mr. NORRIS raised money for a variety of causes including the Wiarton hospital, Owen Sound hospital, Easter Seals and the Gateway Haven seniors' home in Wiarton.
He would have celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary with wife Gail in October. He was a proud father to six daughters and grandfather to 10 grandchildren, she said.
Her husband didn't have hobbies, Gail NORRIS said. His biggest interest was helping the community.
Using his influence and determination, Mr. NORRIS helped raise more than $5 million to help build the Wiarton hospital, she said.
Bill WALKER, a member of the Healthy Connections hospital fundraising campaign, regarded Mr. NORRIS as a mentor whose Friendship spanned more than 25 years.
"He's the type of guy that if he set his mind to it, no matter what it was, he would see it through," he said.
Mr. NORRIS's passion and determination helped save the hospital during the 1990s when the provincial Conservative government considered shutting it down, said longtime friend A.J. LEEDER.
Rallying more than 2,000 people in the Wiarton Arena, picking some up by bus, Mr. NORRIS lit a fire in people to save the hospital, LEEDER said.
Mr. NORRIS came up with the idea for Snowarama/Skiarama, which later became Winterama, in 1975. The fundraiser has helped raise money for Easter Seals and other children's causes.
He had a special place in his heart for children, LEEDER said.
He was a Rotary Club member, sat on the Wiarton recreation committee and was a founding member of the local Crime Stoppers organization. He brought celebrities including wrestler Whipper Billy Watson and performers Charley Pride, Anne Murray, Tommy Hunter and Stompin' Tom Connors to the area for fundraising events.
At 16, with only a Grade 8 education and help from mentor Don BUMSTEAD, NORRIS bought his first car and started a taxi business. That one cab turned into a fleet, which he sold to buy a bus. He grew his bus business into a 155-vehicle line.
NORRIS operated Owen Sound's transit system for the city when he died.
"Most unexpected outcome from a child with a limited chance. He took it and bloomed and blossomed," LEEDER said of his friend's life.
Member of provincial parliament Bill Murdoch's office is near the Owen Sound bus terminal. The two knew each other for more that 25 years and yelled at each other over the fence from time to time.
"The community will really miss him," Murdoch said. "He was simply the most generous person, always willing to help people."
Wiarton Mayor Gwen GILBERT knew NORRIS all her life and said it would be hard to find someone else who gave so much to his community.
"His legacy of hard work and determination will live on forever," she said.

Debra Ann KRANENBURG went to be with her Heavenly Father peacefully with her family by her side at the South Bruce-Grey Health Centre, Walkerton on Monday, October 22nd, 2007 at the age of 50 years, the former Debra SCOTT of Paisley. She will be missed by her best friend and husband Bill KRANENBURG. Together they shared a great love for their children; Wesley and his wife Jessica of Scotland, Ontario, Nathaniel and his wife Laura of Port Elgin, Jeremy and his wife Katie of Southampton, Zachary of Paisley, and Emily of Paisley. Bill and Debra also received great joy from their three grandchildren; Josiah, Caleb, and Chloe-Anne. Debbie is survived and greatly loved by her parents Roy and Bertha SCOTT of Port Elgin, her sister Darlene MASHINTER and family of Waterloo, and by her brothers Don SCOTT and family of Calgary, Alberta, and Dave SCOTT and family of Wellesley. She will always be remembered by her many Friends and remain in their hearts. Friends called at the W.

During the service, family remembrances were presented by her brother Don SCOTT. Barb JOHNSTON served as pianist and led the music portion of the service. Debbie was born June 16th, 1957 to Roy and Bertha SCOTT, and was raised on a farm in Paisley. She was educated locally, and graduated from the Accounting Program at Georgian College in Owen Sound. Very involved in her church, it was there that she met Bill KRANENBURG, eventually marrying in 1978. Debbie taught Sunday School for many years, and served faithfully as Church Treasurer for 25 years. Aside from farming, together, Bill and Debbie successfully partnered in business when they purchased the Beefway meat packing business in Kincardine in 1997. They then went on to acquire the First Base Restaurant on Port Elgin Beach in 2000, which they quickly established as a family favourite. She faithfully supported her children in all their activities, dreams and aspirations. Debbie enjoyed doing crafts, was an avid garage-saler, loved to shop and collect collectables. She was a wonderful cook who shared her meal creations with her many Friends and family. She will be remembered as a fun-loving, Christian woman with a wonderful sense of humour and a bubbly, contagious laugh. Her family will miss the compassionate, caring and generous nature with which she blessed them everyday. Her zeal for life inspired many people to love their lives to the fullest, to enjoy the small pleasures in life, and to trust God in all things. Interment was made at Paisley Cemetery. Acting as casket-bearers were Nelson HARVEY, Willard HORST, Ken TOMAN, Jim WALKER, Bryan WEBB and Ron WELLS.

'An irrational act'
Top-ranking female officer, retired superintendent found in scene of horror The service pistol used belonged to Kelly JOHNSON, a leader in fighting domestic violence.
By Randy RICHMOND and Kelly PEDRO, Sun Media, Fri., June 8, 2007
Just before London police's "rising female star" and her ex-lover, a retired officer, were killed in a murder-suicide, she made a mysterious stop at the police station.
Then, Acting Insp. Kelly JOHNSON, the force's highest- ranking female officer, jumped into a waiting van.
Minutes later, two gunshots were fired inside a van before it crashed into a brick wall six blocks away from the station, outside JOHNSON's apartment building at 7 Picton St.
Stunned neighbours found JOHNSON, 40, dead, her face bloody, her 9 mm Glock service pistol -- which she wasn't authorized to have with her -- on her lap.
Beside her, the driver of the van and her ex-lover, retired superintendent David LUCIO, 57, was slumped over with what witnesses: called a bullet wound to the head.
Neighbours called 911 at 12: 01 a.m. yesterday and police arrived within four minutes to discover the unthinkable: two of their own were dead.
Even more unthinkable -- police and civilian sources and witness accounts pointed yesterday to JOHNSON -- a noted community leader in fighting domestic violence -- as the one who shot LUCIO.
A subdued police Chief Murray FAULKNER stressed police won't know who shot whom until after an autopsy scheduled for today.
"Nothing that happened last night makes any sense right yet," he told The Free Press. "There will be sources that say that (JOHNSON was the shooter,) and I understand that."
"But we need to have proof, not just speculation, not just opinion," FAULKNER said.
Even after the autopsies, police may never know why the killings occurred.
"Was there anything yesterday that would indicate there would be a problem at midnight last night? Not a single thing. Was there anything in her mood, anything? No, no," FAULKNER said.
FAULKNER said he didn't know why JOHNSON, after leaving work about 5 p.m., returned just before midnight.
"Did she come to get some workout clothes? Did she come to get her service revolver? I don't know."
She wasn't authorized to take her gun home, FAULKNER said.
An officer who saw JOHNSON at the station noticed nothing amiss, FAULKNER said.
The first civilians to find JOHNSON and LUCIO after the shooting described a scene of quiet horror.
"I heard a gunshot, then I heard an engine revving and then a crash," said Brian KEARN, who was in the front lobby of his apartment building near where the van crashed.
He and several other building residents ran outside.
"We tried to get in the van and help the victims but the doors were locked," he said.
KEARN said he saw a female passenger, with a severe head wound from a gunshot, sitting in the passenger side. A handgun rested on her lap.
The male driver appeared to have a bullet wound to his right temple, KEARN said.
"There was no movement. The people were obviously dead."
Other witnesses: described seeing the man with a bloody left arm and blood down his back.
"It was awful, just gruesome" said one woman, a nearby resident. "You could see blood on the airbags."
Another resident of the same building said he heard a bang and watched from his second-floor window as the van rolled back after hitting the wall.
When he got to the van, "they were lifeless."
Police on the scene grew instantly quiet once they opened the van, KEARN said.
"There were quite subdued. They were quite quiet."
JOHNSON was an 18-year veteran of the force.
She's served for several years as the detective sergeant in charge of the sexual assault and child abuse section and supervised the force's domestic violence co-ordinator.
Five days ago, she was named acting inspector of the department's professional standards branch.
Kelly "was a very bright, articulate community-minded officer&hellip If there was a rising star, specifically female, she was it," FAULKNER said.
LUCIO retired as superintendent in 2004 after 35 years of service.
JOHNSON was a role model for many of the about 100 female officers, FAULKNER said.
"LUCIO was a role model for many of the male officers," FAULKNER said.
"When you see this happen to two people that you either very much admire and emulate, it shakes your confidence."
Most of the force's 180 civilian employees took the news especially hard, FAULKNER said.
"It's the tough cop that doesn't show emotion, but civilian staff are not used to that."
A shaken police board chairperson, Ab CHAHBAR, said it was a sad day for the force.
"You can see it all over their faces," he said.
FAULKNER confirmed JOHNSON and LUCIO had had a relationship, but didn't say how close they were.
The two were ex-lovers, several sources told The Free Press.
JOHNSON had been married for several years to a fellow London officer, Steve PEARSON, but they separated.
LUCIO was also separated from his wife.
It wasn't clear if LUCIO and JOHNSON still had a relationship.
The deaths stunned not only the 720 members of the force, but hundreds more in community groups where the two high-profile officers volunteered.
"It's just a great personal tragedy for both families, Friends and loved ones and anyone who worked with either one of them," said Megan WALKER, head of the London Abused Women's Centre.
"He was a very, very close friend of mine… He loved being a cop," said Dave SCATCHERD, owner of the Oakwood resort in Grand Bend.
Police called Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes civilian deaths and injuries from police actions, but the agency left the case to London police because the "subject officer" was dead, FAULKNER said.

'A terrible tragedy'
She was London police's highest-ranking female officer, respected and moving up quickly; he was a tough, compassionate cop retired after 35 years. Their deaths have stunned a city.
By Jane SIMS, Sun Media, Fri., June 8, 2007
Kelly JOHNSON broke through the glass ceiling of the London police department and had become a role model for the women on the force.
About to take over the helm of the professional standards branch as an inspector, the force's highest-ranking woman, she was viewed as a potential future chief.
She was born with policing in her blood. She was the only child of Merv JOHNSON, who retired as London's deputy chief.
She started with the police force 18 years ago, travelling up the ranks in traffic and criminal investigations.
Along the way, the 40-year-old JOHNSON earned the respect and admiration of many in the anti-violence community.
Yesterday, those who knew her as a friend, officer and anti-violence advocate reacted with shock and sadness to her violent death.
"It's sad. It's terrible," said retired superintendent Don ANDREWS, who was JOHNSON's father's partner on the break- and-enter squad years ago.
ANDREWS knew JOHNSON from her childhood and attended her wedding to London police Insp. Steve PEARSON about a decade ago.
PEARSON retired from the force last Friday. The couple was estranged. JOHNSON was set to fill the post left by PEARSON. She'd earned it.
ANDREWS, admittedly never a strong supporter of women in policing, said: "She was one of the ones I thought was a good one."
Most recently, she headed up the force's sexual assault and child abuse section, an area that includes domestic violence investigations.
She was a respected member of the London Co-ordinating Committee to End Women Abuse.
"What she brought was the understanding of a criminal justice perspective and an openness and a willingness to understand from a community perspective as well," said Barb MacQUARRIE, community director of the Centre of Violence Against Women and Children.
She seemed open to anything. She'd recently attended a forum on the sex trade, an area police have struggled to deal with, MacQUARRIE said.
"This is a terrible loss in our community. It is going to have a big impact on many people that (LUCIO and JOHNSON) worked with," she said.
Middlesex Crown attorney Geoff BEASLEY said JOHNSON will be "sorely missed" by colleagues in the justice system.
"She was highly respected for her skills as a police officer and for the professionalism and compassion she brought to the investigations she conducted," he said.
One of JOHNSON's most challenging cases in recent years was that of Edith SANDERS, an octogenarian child abuser who tortured her biological daughter and an adopted daughter and held another woman in virtual slavery for decades.
Megan WALKER, executive director of the London Abused Women's Centre, served with JOHNSON on anti-violence committees and spoke of her "valuable contribution."
Yesterday, she recalled a recent conversation the two had on a protest march downtown. It was cold that morning, and JOHNSON wasn't dressed for the chill.
Nevertheless, "we had a lovely early-morning chat in this protest march… a wonderful warm talk.
"I am just overcome with sorrow for those who will be impacted by the loss," she said.
"We talk all the time about domestic violence and getting involved," WALKER said. "Truly, we really don't know what goes on in the lives of people, do we?"
JOHNSON also faced personal tragedy. Her mother, Donna, died of cancer late in 2005. She had been seriously hurt before that, struck by a vehicle.
"She was ill in one way or another for quite some period of time, but when Donna did pass away, Kelly and Merv joined together and faced it in a strong fashion," said former London deputy police chief Elgin AUSTEN.
Her parents were proud of how quickly JOHNSON moved up the police ranks, he added.

Farmers mourn savvy advocate's death
Bob SHORE, 74, has died but dairy farmers won't soon forget his work in the industry.
By Norman DE BONO, Sun Media, Thurs., July 26, 2007
Dairy Farmers across the region are mourning the loss of a Port Stanley resident and national icon.
The death of Robert Hardy SHORE -- or Bob, to most -- means the agricultural community has lost one of the Canadian dairy industry's strongest advocates, the man responsible for helping establish a global export market for domestic dairy cattle.
"We have lost one of the pillars. He, along with his father (Hardy), merchandised an unbelievable amount of cattle," said Court CARMICHAEL, owner of Medway Farms Ltd. in Ilderton.
"He was a great guy. He would do anything for you. He was almost too giving at times but that made the markets grow. People trusted him."
The 74-year-old lived in Glanworth but retired to Port Stanley.
"He bought my grandfather out of the business in 1970, entered the international livestock market and pioneered exports to 62 countries," said SHORE's son, also named Hardy, who is president of Shore Holsteins Corp., near Saint Thomas.
Along with his business acumen, Hardy remembers his father as a "gentleman who never lost his cool. His handshake was good, you could take it to the bank."
After graduating from agricultural college in Guelph and attending a school of auctioneering in Indiana, SHORE joined his father's business, Shore Holsteins, in 1953.
When he became owner he changed the focus of the business from a regional auction enterprise specializing in dairy cattle to an international export firm.
"He was a good businessman and a hard, hard worker," said his son. "He loved the business and the people in it."
In 1964, Hardy began to merchandise genetics, setting record prices.
As an auctioneer, he set world records in individual prices for animals, sale averages and sale grosses in top breeder's and consignment sales in Canada and the U.S.
He auctioned off the world record-setting cow in Port Parry, at $1.45 million.
SHORE retired from active auctioneering in 1994.
"We travelled a lot of miles together and I can tell you, he was a fine man," said John WALKER, owner of Walker Dairy Sales Inc. in Aylmer. "He was the backbone of the Holstein industry&hellip we will miss him. He opened a lot of markets and had a great personality."
Since retiring seven years ago, SHORE took up golf, "which no one believed," said Hardy. "He took it up as a hobby and we expected to see him out there in cowboy boots and a hat."
SHORE was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but was later given a "clean bill of health," said Hardy. Two months ago the cancer returned to his bones. He was bed-ridden and in palliative care at Saint Thomas-Elgin General Hospital when he died Monday.
The funeral will be at First United Church in Saint Thomas tomorrow at 1 p.m. Interment to follow in Christ Church Cemetery. Visitation is today from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home on Elgin Street in Saint Thomas.
Robert Hardy SHORE
- Inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame in November 1996. Judged dairy cattle on five continents.
- Founder and president of Shore Holsteins International Ltd. - President of the Elgin County Holstein Club.
- Founding member of the Canadian Livestock Exporters Association and twice president.
- Auctioneer for 58 years.

STEVENSON, Mary R. (née FLOYD)
Suddenly after a brief illness on Monday, September 17, 2007 at Saint Michael's Hospital in her 90th year, after a Muskoka summer surrounded by all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and dogs). Mary, the beautiful and dearly loved wife of Harry (d. 1999) for 61 years, adored mother of Cynthia CARSLEY (Scott MARTIN), Alice COOPER (Douglas), Douglas STEVENSON (Sonia) and Leigh Anne STEVENSON. Grandmother of Louis CARSLEY (Susanne,) Andrew CARSLEY, Douglas CARSLEY (Penny), Steve WALKER (Tracy), Todd WALKER (Tatjana), Joshua WALKER (Devorah), George COOPER, Rob STEVENSON (Cynthia,) Monique STEVENSON, and John Stevenson TAMES. Great-grandmother of Timothy, Reed, Eden, Nicola, Oscar, Carson and Boaz. Beloved sister of Frank FLOYD and Ruth SMITH. Predeceased by her brother Richard FLOYD.
Mary will be long honoured, remembered and dearly missed by her family and Friends everywhere. Mary and Harry's life together, living in Toronto, Muskoka, Coral Gables, Naples, Barbados, New York, Athens, London and Ottawa gave them the opportunity to make extraordinary Friends -- whom they treasured.
Mary had deep commitments to Christ Church Deer Park, The Cradleship Creche, Belmont House, and the Church of the Kettles. She was the conservator and doyenne of the Stevenson family cottage. At her happiest, she was sitting on her deck (with Harry) in Muskoka, notebook in hand, surrounded by the activities and perambulations of countless boats, dogs, and her beloved family. Writing was always close to her heart, and in her last eight years she never passed a day without setting pen to paper. Her book "The Church of the Kettles, Muskoka" published in her 86th year was the highlight of her writing career. Still to be published is her book on the history of Belmont House.
On her last night with us she recited a poem she wrote:
Muskoka -- By the way:
If ever in the night you hear,
The dove-soft whistle
of a northbound train,
Remember all the summer years
We loved, we loved and laughed
and know that now
Though wrapped in shrouds
of dream filled sleep
we hear it still.
A service will be held at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge St. (at Heath St.) on Friday, September 21 at 11 a.m. Remembrances can be sent on behalf of Mary to Belmont House and Christ Church Deer Park.

Elizabeth was down to earth, gracious, generous and caring, with innate wisdom and good taste, and an infectious sense of fun that attracted hosts of lifelong Friends wherever she and Max lived. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Ann HANNA (John, 1968,) grand_sons Jeffrey HANNA (Canmore, Alberta), and David (Susie) HANNA, Toronto, and great-grandchildren Will and Elizabeth HANNA, all of whom she loved unconditionally and beyond reason, her finest legacy.

Shooting suspect found slain hours later
By Matt HARTLEY, Page A12
A man found shot to death in an underground parking garage in the north end of Scarborough Friday evening was responsible for the brazen daylight shooting death of another man just seven hours earlier, according to Toronto police.
It all started at 1: 22 p.m. Friday when 19-year-old Ryan HYDE was ambushed outside a plaza at the corner of Birchmount Road and Bonis Avenue in Scarborough.
Mr. HYDE was waiting inside a black four-door sedan for a friend who had gone into a restaurant to buy some pizza when someone opened the rear door of the car and started shooting.
He was shot several times and died of a wound to the abdomen a short time later in hospital.
Police say the gunman was 25-year-old Kennado WALKER of Ajax - also known as Weezy or Squeeze - who fled the scene with another man.
The pair apparently took off north across Bonis Avenue and disappeared into a townhouse complex.
At 8: 13 p.m., police were called to an underground parking garage at 5600 Sheppard Ave. East - just five kilometres away - where Mr. WALKER's body was discovered, riddled with bullets.
Police said he died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.
"By all accounts it appears that Mr. WALKER was targeted for this shooting and executed in the garage," Toronto police Detective Stacy GALLANT said. "What we have are two individuals who were leading criminal high-risk lifestyles. They had an apparent dispute that led to both of them being killed on Friday."
Officers said both men were known to police and had a history of involvement with drugs and guns. However, police still have not given a motive for either killing. Det. GALLANT said neither man had an apparent gang affiliation, but that they did know one another.
"We'd like to find out what's happened and why Mr. WALKER would feel compelled to go and kill another man over what's gone on in the past," Det. GALLANT said.
At least nine homicide officers as well as the gun and gang task force are investigating the slayings.
Police have also arrested a 21-year-old man, Adrian McGOWAN, who was found attending to Mr. HYDE at the scene of the first shooting.
He now faces weapons charges.
