Snowmobile crash kills boy, 15
Perry OSBORN of Monkton was killed when his snowmobile struck a transport truck.
By Donal O'CONNOR, and Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Thurs., December 20, Mitchell -- A 15-year-old high school student who died in a snowmobile crash yesterday was remembered by his schoolmates as a "wonderful" and "well-liked" person.
Perry OSBORN of R.R.#2 Monkton was killed instantly after the snowmobile he was riding collided with a transport truck north of Mitchell just before noon.
Students and staff at Mitchell District high school, where OSBORN was a Grade 10 student, learned of his death by the afternoon and were met with grief counsellors at the school.
"We're grieving the loss of a wonderful young man who was well-liked by his teachers and peers," school principal Jodie BAKER said.
"Our condolences go out to the family and Friends," said BAKER who expressed her own concern for students' safety during the Christmas holidays.
Counselling will be available at the school for the rest of the week. The school will try to maintain normalcy over the next few days prior to the Christmas break, BAKER said.
OSBORN was heading home from school when his snowmobile came off a snowmobile trail, crossed Perth Line 36 from the south and travelled into the path of the transport truck around 11: 50 a.m., Perth County Ontario Provincial Police said.
The truck was heading west on the paved road north of town near Road 162. The driver was not injured.
OSBORN wasn't the only student who rode a snowmobile to the school. Last week, an Ontario Provincial Police officer visited the school and discussed snowmobile safety.
"There are a few students who ride their snowmobiles to Mitchell high school… (and) they all register with the school," Const. Glen Childerley said.
The trails are well-groomed and maintained, he said.
Students park their snowmobiles behind the school and there's a snowmobile path right next to it, he said.
To drive a snowmobile, the driver must be at least 12 years old, have a snowmobile licence and take a safe snowmobiling course, Childerley said.
The road was closed for about four hours while police investigated.
Police don't expect to lay any charges, they said.

Shots only came one way, police say
By Colin FREEZE, Page A1
Toronto -- Hope has a habit of dying in Jamestown.
Joan BAKER, a mother of three, heard about six staccato bursts echo up the road from her housing project on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. "Oh, maybe it's firecrackers," is what she recalls hoping.
Then she saw a shiny silver Mercedes sport utility vehicle speed around a bend on John Garland Boulevard, followed by what looked to be a blue Honda. Before long, she saw the Honda, stopped just around the corner, with all of its doors open and the passengers having fled, all except a young man who lay dying on the grass - the unarmed victim, police say, of a drive-by attack.
Paramedics arrived and put a tarp over the man. It was at that point that Ms. BAKER held out another hope, that maybe the victim was not one of her neighbours. "Oh jeez, that person is dead," she recalled thinking, while looking at the body. "You want to bet they're going to blame it on Jamestown?"
But then she saw a distraught mother of four from across the walkway. "She was just begging for someone to tell her, 'no it was not him,' Ms. BAKER recalled. She told her neighbour she had gotten a glimpse of the victim, and that it was a young white man, wearing a white do-rag and white sneakers.
The other woman burst out in hysterical crying. Hope that her teenaged son was alive had just evaporated. It was his body that was lying under that tarp; he had gotten to within a few metres of his home after fleeing an attack.
Toronto Police yesterday identified Jose Hierro SAEZ, 19, as Toronto's latest homicide victim. The shooting seriously injured three of his Friends - Paddy McFRINN, 18, Moustaffa OMAR, 20, Matthew DALE, 18.
Homicide detectives said the victims were too "groggy" to say much about the shooters, leaving police few leads yesterday. "We have some possibilities, but even those are perhaps a stretch," Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON said yesterday.
The detective said that most of the shooting victims held down jobs and that he has no information to indicate they are gang members. Most lived in the neighbourhood.
The shooting has been reported as a "gun battle," but detectives said yesterday that it was one-sided. "It wasn't a battle, that's the best information we have right now," Det. GRINTON said. Police believe the shots were fired from the silver Mercedes sport utility vehicle, just east of the housing project near Kipling Avenue, before the two cars got to the housing project.
"It's tremendously frustrating when these things happen because we work hard in these neighbourhoods and we work hard in Jamestown," Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said at a news conference to announce the infusion of $5-million from the province to combat crime in the downtown nightclub district. "It's tremendously frustrating when a few, frankly, idiots go out and engage in such wanton violence."
He held out hope that people wouldn't lose faith in police efforts to curb the violence. During 2005, more than 10 fatal shootings occurred in the Jamestown housing complex. Since last year, after Chief Blair announced that his force had "surgically removed" the leadership of the Jamestown Crew while arresting scores of alleged gangsters, homicides and shootings have been rare.
Still, the housing project has yet to blot out all the Crips gang graffiti on its walls, and its residents generally had little to say to reporters yesterday. "Yeah, that's what happened. That was my friend," said one young man, before walking off with a shrug. A few people laid wreaths at the crime scene, but wouldn't comment.
Twenty-four hours after the shooting, Joan BAKER sat outside watching her daughter do her homework, and warning another group of children playing soccer not to veer into the road where the cars had sped by the previous day. Many of her neighbours, she said, "think if you talk to the police or anybody, you're snitching."
Many people in the housing project mind their own business. Still, the BAKER family knew the shooting victim, not well, but they liked what they knew about him.
Every morning in the winter when Ms. BAKER walked her children out to the bus - she said she sends her children to schools farther away because of the "peer pressure" in local ones - they would see the young man warming up the car for his mother. He would say "Hi Mummy" and smile and sometimes tell jokes.
Ms. BAKER's daughter cried when she learned that their neighbour was dead. It was a grim reminder for the family of a homicide two years ago. In that incident, a man who had visited the BAKERs' house just before going a party up the street was shot in the leg when the other man was killed.
The family has been living in the project for seven years, and it's an uphill struggle at times. Still, "if I can survive Kingston 11," Ms. BAKER said, referring to her old neighbourhood in Jamaica, "I can survive Jamestown."
She hopes to move out of it one day, but "every time I think I can afford to leave, I just come back down to zero again."

(1940-54) where his vocation as a teacher was confirmed by the respect and affection he enjoyed from his students.
He enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942 and as a Flight Lieutenant taught under the Commonwealth Air Training Command at Portage La Prairie and Brandon, Manitoba. Returning to North Bay after the war, he moved to Etobicoke in 1955, opening Alderwood Collegiate as its first principal. He then opened Thistletown Collegiate in 1957.
During the 1960s he was promoted to a variety of administrative roles with the Etobicoke Board of Education, culminating in his appointment as its Director of Education in 1972; he stayed in this position until his retirement in 1977.
He is survived by his son John and wife June, and his son Scott and partner Blair, and three grandchildren, Allyson, Angela and Neil, and one great-grandchild, Adam. He was predeceased by his wife Elizabeth (McRAE) in 1994.
At Jack's request, there will be a private cremation and later interment at the Old Stone Church in Beaverton. Friends are invited to a reception to be held at the Markland Wood Golf and Country Club, Bloor at Markland Drive, Etobicoke on Wednesday June 27 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Jack had a remarkable enthusiasm for life and took enormous delight in the divine comedy of it. The family wishes to thank Jack's wonderful neighbours and Friends who so enriched his life. No flowers but please consider a donation to the charity of your choice in Jack's memory.

BOCHSLER, Oscar
Farmer, good friend, great neighbour. Born January 8, 1924, in Neu St. Johann, Switzerland. Died February 25 in Cayuga, Ontario, of complications after cancer surgery, aged 83.
By Tom BOCHSLER, Page L6
When he was 4, Oscar emigrated from Switzerland to Canada with our parents Thomas and Mary along with our brothers Joseph, Alois, and baby sister Lucy. Their final destination was Binbrook, Ontario, near Hamilton.
Our father was a stonemason; he had high hopes for the future in Canada, but it became a real challenge when the Great Depression started. The family spoke Swiss-German; the children learned English through contact with other kids and at school, but it took much longer for our parents. Our family moved to a rented farm, with no hydro or indoor plumbing, but a big garden, a few chickens, pigs and a cow.
In his late teens, Oscar worked as a logger in Muskoka, at a meat processing plant and then as a hired man on an Ancaster farm where potatoes were the cash crop. A few years later, the farmer offered Oscar the use of 10 acres of land for his own crop of potatoes; this became his source of funds to purchase the farm next door, where he shared labour and farm equipment with his former employer.
I spent seven summers as Oscar's hired man, and for a time our sister Lucy was the housekeeper. With hard work, profitable potato and grain harvests and some livestock, he managed fairly well. Several years later, Oscar decided to venture to California, hoping to get into ranching, but an investment there was beyond his hopes and means.
He returned to work as a farm mechanic in Caledonia, Ontario In 1955 he had the opportunity to purchase a 100-acre farm in York. Pigs were the livestock of choice at the time, but gradually he switched to sheep. Through study and determination, his animal husbandry and veterinary skills made him an expert in their care and management.
In his late 50s, he married Marian BAKER, who proved to be a great helpmate on the farm and at home. He also gained a stepdaughter, Lorraine, a son-in-law and grandchildren. Marian died in 1996.
When our kids and grandkids went to visit him, he would enjoy showing them how the sheep responded to the pet names he had for them. The wagon and tractor rides to the back forty were always exciting for the kids; occasionally they would see a fox or a deer.
As his illness grew beyond treatment, Oscar never complained, even cracking a joke or two with the caring medical staff when things didn't seem promising. The parting message he left with brother Albert was: "Have a lunch after the service, I don't want anyone going home hungry."
Tom BOCHSLER is Oscar's brother.

Surgeon scored 1962 breakthrough with world's first coronary care unit
Doctor who had served on HMCS Prince Robert in wartime later maintained a thriving practice and taught generations of medical students at the University of Toronto, writes Sandra Martin
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Back in the early 1960s, when prescribing blood thinners was the standard treatment for acute heart attacks, Robert (Bob) MacMILLAN and his colleague Kenneth (Ken) BROWN were disturbed by the 40 per cent mortality rate in their recovering patients at the Toronto General Hospital. Some of these patients, who seemed very well when the night nurse checked on them, were found dead the following morning. The cause seemed obvious: a disturbance in the rhythm of the heart's electrical system, or ventricular fibrillation. But what triggered the fatal imbalance remained a mystery.
In 1962, the two doctors established the world's first coronary care unit at Toronto General Hospital. Within a year they had reduced the mortality rate by 10 per cent. The significance of the coronary unit was "huge," said cardiologist Douglas WIGLE, a former colleague and now professor emeritus at the department of medicine at the University of Toronto.
"Bob was a superb teacher with a very dry wit who made a point of being charming and friendly to students when it was more typical in those days for doctors to be austere and professorial," said hematologist Michael BAKER, an intern under Doctor MacMILLAN in the mid-1960s and now physician-in-chief at university health network.
"I learned the technical aspects of cardiology from him but, far more important, looking back, I learned the human side of being a prominent physician," said Doctor BAKER. "He was pleasant, he had a sense of humour, he had a life outside the hospital and he was interested in us as people."
Robert Laidlaw MacMILLAN was born into a medical family in Toronto during the First World War. His father, Robert Johnson MacMILLAN, was an anesthetist at the Wellesley Hospital and his mother, Merle (née LAIDLAW,) was a nurse. The family, which included Bob's younger brother Hugh (who also became a distinguished doctor) and his sister Mary, lived first on Admiral Road and then on Dunvegan in Forest Hill.
When Bob was about 13, his father decided to spend a year in Europe to complete his medical training, which had been truncated by the war. The three children were sent to the Lycée Jacquard in Switzerland, where they learned to ski and to speak French. When the MacMILLANs returned to Toronto, the boys enrolled at University of Toronto Schools, then a boys-only elite private academic institution. They were both burly and very athletic and were known as Big Beef and Little Beef. Bob graduated in 1934 and went that fall to Trinity College in the University of Toronto, where he played college rugby and hockey, and earned an honours degree in biological and medical sciences in 1938 and a medical degree three years later.
Meanwhile, an 18-year-old Welsh woman named Eluned (Lyn) CAREY- EVANS, had graduated from Roedean School near Brighton in Sussex, and set off on a tour of Canada in August of 1939, having been assured by her grandfather, the former British prime minister David Lloyd GEORGE, that fears of war breaking out were grossly exaggerated. She was in Sault Ste. Marie on September 3, 1939, when British prime minister Neville Chamberlain declared war on Germany.
Stranded without money, connections, or winter clothes, Lyn was rescued by Friends of her family who arranged for her to stay at St. Hilda's, the women's residence at Trinity College. The university allowed her to attend medical classes (based on her English qualifications) and that is how, coming out of the library with her arms loaded with borrowed books, she literally ran into Bob MacMILLAN, the older brother of her classmate Hugh. After he got down on his hands and knees to retrieve her books, he invited her for a milkshake, and that was that. "He was so funny always; he was such an interesting person," she said in a telephone interview late last week.
They were married three years later on Valentine's Day, 1942, at Trinity College, with no member of her family able to cross the Atlantic to attend the ceremony. By then, he had enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve. They made their first home in Victoria, British Columbia, which they both loved, but she returned to Toronto when he was posted overseas as a surgeon lieutenant commander on HMCS Prince Robert. The ship, which had been designed as a coastal ferry for Canadian National's Vancouver-to-Alaska run, was the vessel that had carried King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on the round trip from Vancouver to Victoria as part of a Royal tour in May, 1939. It was then converted to an armed merchant cruiser for convoy duty and escorted Canadian troops to Hong Kong in October of 1941 for the ill-fated defence of the British crown colony against the Japanese.
By the time Lt.-Cmdr. MacMILLAN climbed aboard, Prince Robert was an anti-aircraft cruiser. It sailed for Plymouth via the Panama Canal, picking up a huge bunch of green bananas on route which Bob decided to present to his in-laws as a getting-acquainted gift. Their first sight of him, as he emerged on the station platform in North Wales in 1943, was of a tall, husky man with a red beard bent under the weight of his bounty of ripe bananas a fruit they hadn't seen in years. They were charmed, according to Lyn MacMILLAN who recollected that her family "ate bananas until they were blue in the face."
Lt.-Cmdr. MacMILLAN remained on Prince Robert for the duration of the war, during which the ship had more conversions and sailed more operational miles than any other in the Royal Canadian Navy. For much of the conflict she was the navy's largest and most heavily armed ship, and later had a final life as a luxury ocean liner.
While her husband was overseas, Mrs. MacMILLAN gave birth to their first child, the historian Margaret MacMILLAN, now warden of St. Antony's College, Oxford. Four more children followed, Ann, a London-based Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcaster Tom, a financier; Robert, a urologist; and David, an energy consultant.
After he was demobilized at the end of the Pacific War, Doctor MacMILLAN was joined by his growing family where he did post-graduate studies in London and Oxford and qualified as a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 1947. The next year, the MacMILLANs moved back across the Atlantic so he could take up a position at Toronto General Hospital as senior intern in hematology. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Canada) in 1948 and began his long career as a cardiologist on staff at the Toronto General Hospital, initially doing work on blood clotting and platelets.
In the early 1960s, Doctor MacMILLAN and his colleague Doctor K.W. BROWN decided to isolate and observe cardiac patients closely to see if they could determine the factors contributing to high mortality rates in supposedly recovering patients. Federal and provincial governments provided research grants; a private donor, Percy Gardiner, contributed the start-up funds to hire extra nurses to monitor the patients on a 24-hour basis especially in the critical 48-hour period after admission, and the Toronto General Hospital supplied a small room containing four beds separated by curtains.
When the unit opened on March 12, 1962, four patients were attached to improvised electro-cardiogram machines to record every beat of their hearts. Nurses became expert at recognizing complications and instituting life-saving procedures while waiting for doctors to arrive. After a year, this team approach and quick interventions to adjust or restart heart-beat rhythms had reduced the death rate by 10 per cent. The two doctors described their study in an article in the medical journal The Lancet on August 17, 1963, which enabled them to claim credit for establishing the first coronary intensive-care unit in the world.
Despite this medical breakthrough and the fact that Doctor MacMILLAN remained co-director of the coronary unit (which quickly expanded to eight beds) for the next decade, his calling was not primarily as a researcher. Above all, he was a practitioner and a professor, establishing an extensive private practice and teaching generations of medical students at the Toronto General Hospital and the University of Toronto. From his first position as a clinical teacher and an assistant physician in 1952, he rose steadily through the medical and academic ranks, becoming an assistant professor in 1965, an associate professor and senior staff physician in 1968 and professor of medicine and head of the division of general internal medicine at Toronto General Hospital in 1976. He had to retire from teaching when he turned 65 in 1982, but maintained his medical practice for another decade and served as a consultant to the province's Workman's Compensation Board when he was even older.
Dr. MacMILLAN was also a fearless and accomplished traveller and athlete who loved the outdoors. He delighted in canoeing, scuba diving, hiking, camping and playing tennis and skiing in remote locations only accessible by helicopter well into his late 70s. In addition, he and his wife had an active country life on a farm in Vaughan, Ontario, north of Toronto (which his father had bought in 1934) where, among other activities, he kept bees.
The MacMILLANs were at the farm in 2001 when he recognized that he was having a heart attack and told his wife to drive him to the local hospital - fast - where he read his own cardiogram and diagnosed a clot in his heart. The next morning he had a massive coronary. After several weeks in hospital he was transferred to the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, where after six weeks in residence and six months as an outpatient he gradually learned to walk and talk again. "We had six happy years," said Mrs. MacMILLAN. At the beginning of this year, his health declined seriously and he had to go into a special care unit.
Robert Laidlaw MacMILLAN was born May 23, 1917, in Toronto. He died of complications from heart disease on September 5, 2007 at East York General Hospital in Toronto. He was 90. He is survived by his wife Lyn, five children, 12 grandchildren and his extended family.
