CHOLAKIS, Harry A. (December 16, 1926-July 16, 2007)
It is with great sadness that the family of Harry CHOLAKIS announces his passing at age 80 in Toronto. Survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Marina, his beloved children Ernest (Rebecca LAST,) Nancy (Richard RACZKOWSKI,) Cynthia (Robert GEMMELL) and George (Hanya KATZ.) Cherished grandfather to Jennifer, Greg, Laura, Megan, Michelle and Michael. Survived by brothers, John, Paul and Leo CHOLAKIS, predeceased by brother Chris and parents, Ernest and Helen CHOLAKIS, all of Winnipeg. Harry was born in Winnipeg to a Greek immigrant father and an American mother. His passion for sports resulted in recruitment to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Football team before polio ended his dream. He then focused his energy coaching the Winnipeg Rods, a Manitoba junior football team. He joined the family business, Broadway Florists and Greenhouses and then at 41 years of age moved to Toronto with his young family after purchasing Helen Simpsons Flowers. He soon acquired Stan Muston Florist, Graingers and Staines Florists, opened shops at the Royal York Hotel and on Bay Street and was managing the flower shop at the downtown Simpsons department store. Harry was active with FTD and was the first elected Canadian director. He was proud to be a founder of the Ontario Florist Conference and was honored when, in recognition of his many years of involvement in the floral industry, the conference created a 'Harry Cholakis Award'. His family will forever miss his wisdom, strength, humor, integrity and devotion. Harry felt fortunate to have had grandchildren to share his life with the past 18 years. It was a joy for him to celebrate their milestones and to frequently travel with them, often to watch them compete in junior squash tournaments throughout North America and Europe. They will miss his sense of fun, wit and love. A private family funeral service was held followed by interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Condolences can be sent to marinacholakis@sympatico.ca

POZNANSKI, Wojciech Janusz, M.D., F.R.C.P., F.A.C.P.
Wojciech POZNANSKI passed away at Hospice House in Vernon, British Columbia on January 6, 2007 with his family at his side. He will be deeply missed by Nadine, his wife of 55 years, his children, Karine and Bernard (Julie) and his 5 grand-daughters, his niece, nephew and 2 grand-nephews, as well as Nadine's close relatives in Belgium and Switzerland. Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1917, he graduated from the University of Warsaw (B.Sc. Honours 1939). As World War 2 began, he joined the Polish Army and was taken prisoner early in the war. He spent 5 years in various prisoner of war camps in Germany until his escape in fall 1944. He later joined a Polish detachment of the American Army. Wojciech entered medical school at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, receiving his medical degree in 1949 followed by 2 years of post-graduate studies in internal medicine. He married Nadine (née CHOMÉ) in Brussels and immigrated to Canada in 1951. Following a one year internship at Winnipeg Misericordia Hospital, Wojciech began his life work in medicine serving small isolated communities in nothern Manitoba. In 1955, he joined the medical clinic in Wainwright, Alberta, where his work focused on internal medicine. A move to Ottawa in 1962 with his family enabled him to complete his postgraduate studies. He spent one year as Chief Resident in the Dept. of Medicine at Ottawa Civic Hospital, and one year as Senior Resident and Clinical Investigator in the Dept. of Metabolism and Endocrinology at Royal Victoria Hospital (McGill University) in Montreal (1963-64). Wojciech joined the medical staff of the University of Ottawa as a Consultant in Endocrinology and Metabolism. He was also appointed Chief of Medical Biochemistry and head of Metabolism Research at Ottawa Civic Hospital. His research projects helped advance medical knowledge in diabetes and obesity. He remained in Ottawa as Associate Professor in both internal medicine and medical biochemistry until his retirement in 1982. Referred to at times as the "Father of Medical Biochemistry" in Canada, his efforts helped establish the status of medical biochemistry as a postgraduate medical diploma. Wojciech POZNANSKI was the recipient of a Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (1964) and of an Honorary Fellowship of the American College of Physicians and Surgeons (1967). He authored many articles and publications in Endocrinology. One of his medical memberships was an Honorary Fellow of the Alpha-Omega-Alpha Medical Fraternity. In recognition of his contribution to medicine in Canada, he received Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee medal in 1977. Following retirement, he served as physician at Wrinch Memorial Hospital in Hazelton, northern British Columbia (United Church of Canada Medical Mission Services.) There, he tackled the British Columbia wilderness, delivering medical services to a large region of small communities, including the Gitk'san and the Wetsu'wetn peoples for 3 years. In 1985, Wojciech and Nadine came to "retire" in Vernon, British Columbia. Shortly after, he accepted the position of Medical Director of the Diabetic Day Unit at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Deeply aware of the needs of an aging population, he founded the Greater Vernon Adult Day Care Centre. The years he endured as a prisoner of war profoundly affected and developed his commitment to human rights. This led him and Nadine to establish chapters of Amnesty International, in Hazelton and in Vernon. Throughout his life, Wojciech was a devoted and very active member of the United Church. At Trinity United in Vernon, he took leadership roles in stewardship and outreach. His love of gardening led him to help conceive and plan the beautiful rock garden at the church. After a life fully dedicated to his fellow human beings, may he now rest in peace. A Celebration of Wojciech's life will be held at Trinity United Church on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 3: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Vernon Hospice House, 3506 - 27th Avenue, Vernon, British Columbia V1T 1S4 or to Amnesty International, 312 Laurier Ave East, Ottawa, Ontario K1N 1H9 will be gratefully received. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Bethel Funeral Chapel Ltd., 5605-27th Street, Vernon, British Columbia V1T 8Z5 (250)-542-1187.

Former councillor remembered as a trailblazer
By James RUSK, Page A13
Former Toronto councillor Ying HOPE, the first Chinese-Canadian to be elected to the Toronto School Board and to city council, has been remembered as a trailblazing politician who left behind, in the words of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, "a wonderful legacy of service."
The Prime Minister's words were read at Friday's funeral for Mr. HOPE, who died last week at age 84. They also lauded Mr. HOPE for his "determined effort" to seek redress for the head tax once imposed on Chinese immigrants and for the exclusionary laws that prevented them from voting. These efforts by Mr. HOPE and other Chinese leaders were rewarded last year when the government apologized for a half-century of mistreatment of Chinese-Canadians.
But it was his two-decade career in city politics where Mr. HOPE, who grew up as one of eight children in the family of a tailor in Victoria, made his mark.
An engineer who had worked on the Avro Arrow and on the Dew Line, Mr. HOPE was first elected to the school board in 1964, made chair of the board in 1967, and won a seat on city council in 1969 as part of the Civic Action Group that included future mayors David Crombie and Art Eggleton.
A Progressive Conservative, who remained active in the party until he died, Mr. HOPE ran provincially in 1967 and federally in 1984.
He lost his council seat in 1985, won it back in a 1987 by-election, but his career as an elected official ended in 1988 when he lost his seat in that year's vote.
Until Mr. HOPE's election, the Chinese immigrant community had not played a direct role in electoral politics in the city, as Chinese families, traditionally leery of politics, preferred to handle political problems through intermediaries such as Bill Wen Sr., the owner of Sai Woo Restaurant.
Mr. HOPE's election led the way for Chinese-Canadians into the mainstream of civic politics, where he was followed by councillors like Gordon Chong and Denzil MINNAN- WONG.
"I agree with the view that Ying HOPE was a pioneer. He was one of the early politicians of Chinese descent who played politics the way it always has been played with less reliance on a totally Chinese base," said Susan ENG, former chair of the Police Service Board.
Former Toronto mayor John SEWELL, who was a rookie councillor with Mr. HOPE in Toronto in 1969, said that he was "somebody I would call a moderate. He was not a vote reformers could count on, but he was not part of the developer group headed by Fred Beavis."
Mr. SEWELL described Mr. HOPE's election in a ward that included traditionally Anglo areas of the city such as the Annex as a breakthrough in city politics. Mr. HOPE did not win simply with a big block of Chinese votes at his back.
"What was interesting was that he was not elected from the Chinese part of the city, and was not referred to as an ethnic candidate. … No one had a feeling that he was beholden anyone, and so he was allowed to act as a normal politician," Mr. SEWELL said.
"He was remarkable in his time. Ying HOPE was one of those people who established a beachhead," said Mr. MINNAN- WONG, who, like Mr. HOPE and Mr. CHONG, has been elected to council from wards that do not have large Chinese-Canadian populations.
"Both Gordon and I weren't running as 'Chinese' candidates. We were running as mainstream Canadians who had Chinese names," Mr. MINNAN- WONG said.
Mr. MINNAN- WONG, who represents Don Mills in council, said that circumstances have changed since Mr. HOPE was the pioneer.
"My father ran for council in 1976, and he wasn't successful. Back then, it wasn't easy to run with a double-barrelled Chinese name like MINNAN- WONG in an exceedingly suburban area that didn't have the same concentration of immigrant population you have now," said Mr. MINNAN- WONG.
Don Mills now has enough immigrants that its population is similar to rest of Toronto, and acceptance of multiculturalism makes its easier for him to run.
Even so, Mr. MINNAN- WONG noted, in general, the Chinese community is primarily interested in business, reluctant to participate in politics, and despite Mr. HOPE's example, still under-represented at elected levels relative to its share of the population.

Teens mourn friend's 'death by misadventure'
The body of 17-year-old Taylor WHITNEY was found Sunday afternoon in a backyard after he failed to make his way home from a party
By Anthony REINHART, Page A10
As an avid athlete and the life of many a teenage party, Taylor WHITNEY rarely lacked for company.
With a ready supply of jokes and a put-on Irish accent, the 17-year-old left his many Friends in stitches whenever they got together, which was often.
Still, no one was there when he needed it most - in the wee hours of Saturday morning, as he struggled to make his way home from just such a gathering. As other teens filtered off into the night, Mr. WHITNEY wandered in the opposite direction of his parents' Toronto home and into a backyard, where his body was found by a neighbourhood search party on Sunday afternoon.
"Death by misadventure" is what the police called it after an autopsy yesterday; the Richview Collegiate Institute student apparently lost his footing and fell down an embankment behind a house on Edgehill Road, a leafy street lined with large, stately homes in the Royal York Road and Dundas Street West area of Etobicoke.
Toxicology tests, still pending, should reveal whether Mr. WHITNEY was intoxicated, but his Friends said he was experienced with alcohol and there was drinking at the party, which was hosted by a teenage boy whose parents were not home.
Yesterday, the dead teen's Friends struggled with guilt for not keeping tabs on Mr. WHITNEY, who would have started Grade 12 at Richview Collegate next week, and taken the football field wearing his usual No. 24, or "two-four" as he called it, in a nod to his zest for parties and beer.
"I feel kind of bad because at parties, if people start getting out of hand or people start drinking too much, I'm usually the one who takes care of them," said Tyler VELLEND, a close friend and fellow Richview linebacker. "The one time that I wasn't there to make sure he was okay, he went missing and ended up passing away."
Mr. VELLEND said he had planned to go to the party on Valecrest Drive with Mr. WHITNEY, but a last-minute chance to attend a football camp in Virginia came along. He didn't know anything was wrong until early Saturday morning, when text messages flooded his cellphone from Friends asking if he'd heard about Mr. WHITNEY's disappearance.
When Mr. VELLEND arrived home that morning, his mother Kathy, a Toronto police sergeant, was already organizing volunteers for a search. She directed groups of parents, teens and neighbours - including the boy who hosted the party and his parents - from a command post at St. George's Junior School.
When a friend sent a text message to Mr. WHITNEY's cellphone at 10 a.m., police were able to determine the message was received, which meant his phone must have been within two kilometres of a cellular tower at Royal York Road and Dundas Street West. The search was focused accordingly.
At about 2 p.m. Sunday, Ms. VELLEND got the call from one of the searchers.
"She was like, 'All right, you stay there at the meeting point,' " her son said, while she headed to the discovery site on Edgehill Road.
Then, with dozens of volunteers milling around him at the command post, young Mr. VELLEND got the call from his mother: "We're looking at him right now, but there's no signs of [life]."
"There was total silence, and I had a can of pop in my hand and I just dropped it," Mr. VELLEND said. "I broke down and collapsed on the ground."
Michael MASOTTI, another close friend of Mr. WHITNEY, was nearby when the search party found the body. He followed Mr. WHITNEY's parents down into the backyard, past a swimming pool to where the ground dropped off steeply toward a ravine that flanks the Humber River.
"There were logs and rocks at the bottom," Mr. MASOTTI said, confirming that it appeared Mr. WHITNEY's neck was broken. "I think it was quite sudden. He definitely didn't suffer."
Mr. MASOTTI, 16, said he attended the party briefly on Friday night, and described it as typical of many.
"It's a house party; I mean, there's always alcohol," he said, adding that he saw "nothing overly serious" going on.
"That's what's scary; it can happen to anyone at any time," he said. "It happened to him and he didn't deserve it. No 17-year-old deserves to die."
Asked if anything can be learned from Mr. WHITNEY's death, Mr. MASOTTI said, "This isn't going to change drinking [among teenagers]. The one thing it will change is how people treat their Friends.
"They have to stay with their Friends, and if you see someone who's having trouble, you don't just leave them. You pick them up and you get them to their door."
Earlier this year, Mr. MASOTTI said, he was with Friends, all of whom had been drinking before a school dance. During a subway stop along the way, one of them appeared intoxicated, but told the others he was okay. The others continued on, only to learn later that their friend had wound up in hospital to get his stomach pumped.
Paul CHORLEY, another friend who attended the party, said he and about 25 teens left the house when the party ended at about 12: 20 a.m. Saturday. Mr. WHITNEY was among those departing, but "I guess unnoticeably, he fell behind."
Mr. CHORLEY and Mr. MASOTTI later heard that Mr. WHITNEY accepted a ride soon afterward, but got out of the vehicle a short distance away. There, he began walking with two other teens he did not know well, and reportedly told them "this is my street" as he headed onto Edgehill Road, which was in the opposite direction of his family's home on Ravensbourne Crescent, three kilometres northwest.
Asked if Mr. WHITNEY appeared different than normal at the party, Mr. CHORLEY said no.
"He was just his usual self," he said. "There was no reason, really, to take precautions; no one was really watching him because nobody thought we had to."
Mr. CHORLEY's father, David, said it's too soon to discuss alcohol or parental supervision in the absence of firm details about the party, but spoke for countless parents when he described his feelings about teenagers.
"You worry about the kids all the time," he said, adding that Mr. WHITNEY was a good kid with loving, involved parents, like most in the neighbourhood where he has lived all of his 51 years.
"Everything was above board. There was constant communication within the parent group. That's why his mother got so upset when he didn't make it home in the wee hours." (Mr. WHITNEY's mother called the CHORLEYs' home at 4 a.m. to ask Paul if her son had gone home with him.)
Calling the young man's death "a very unfortunate, tragic accident" that has devastated parents in the neighbourhood as much as his peer group, the elder Mr. CHORLEY said when it comes to teens, "You do the best you can with what you've got, and they have to make choices, because you're not there."
Tyler VELLEND, who hopes to wear his friend's No. 24 this football season, wishes he had been.
"I don't want to regret it," he said, "but I feel that if I was there, I would have made a difference."
