In a weekend of gun violence, 11-year-old's death 'heartbreaking'
By Jessica LEEDER with a report from Jennifer LEWINGTON, Page A1
It was around midnight Saturday when two telltale cracks cut the sounds of happy partygoers and children playing outside right out of the air.
The fast pattern of gunfire that followed sent mothers within a North Toronto public housing complex into a panic. In No. 1880, the centre block, some began hollering out the names of their children, listening for their calls back.
While the shouting carried on, 11-year-old Ephraim BROWN was splayed on the ground in an alleyway next to the building, unable to even speak his name. Caught in a rain of gunfire while zooming around on his scooter, neighbours said, the Grade 6 pupil took a bullet to the neck. By the time a brood of women from the complex found him and carried him into a nearby unit to tend to him, his blood pressure had dropped. It appeared they were too late.
"I was holding him in my arms," a women who gave her name as Karen said. "As soon as I held him, I knew there was something wrong. We were trying to do cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. We were trying," she said, shaking her head.
Young Ephraim, the city's 43rd homicide victim of the year, was one of three males in the Toronto area killed by gunfire over the weekend, prompting renewed calls for a crackdown on illegal guns and an end to the gang violence that has made the northern corridor of Toronto's Jane Street notorious.
The Toronto shootings came as gun-related violence played out in other Canadian cities over the weekend. Three women and a man were shot outside a downtown nightclub in Winnipeg when a man walked up to a group standing outside the entrance of the club and fired seven shots before fleeing on foot, police said. The man, believed to be a bouncer, was seriously injured. In Halifax, Glenn Brian Bourgeois, 37, died Saturday afternoon after he was shot several times and left on the street.
Toronto Mayor David Miller, the father of an 11-year-old, noted that all shooting deaths are tragedies, but he called Ephraim's death "exceptionally heartbreaking."
Late yesterday, while police continued their investigation into the boy's shooting at the complex near the intersection of Jane Street and Sheppard Avenue West, children on bicycles nonchalantly wove over and under police tape, as if the yellow streamers were simply decorations left over from a birthday party.
Among some violence-weary residents lounging in the hot afternoon sun amidst the police tape, it seemed as if a malaise has set in.
"Another life gone. Nothing we can do," one young mother said. "It happens all the time. I'm not afraid it's spreading: I know it's spread. Before this happened, this part of Jane… was considered safe," she said.
Up the road at a community police detachment, Ephraim's family, who moved to the complex only recently, appealed to their neighbours for help in solving his killing.
"It could just as easily have happened to one of your family members," Amanda TAILOR/TAYLOR, Ephraim's 23-year-old sister, said yesterday while clutching her brother's picture to her chest and fighting back tears.
"For those of you who don't know me or my family or my little brother, I'm sure what I'm about to ask you is going to sound like a really big favour," she said. "I'm asking if you know anything, anything at all, you say something. We all know somebody out there knows something."
While police have yet to make any arrests in the shooting, Toronto Police Detective Sergeant Gary GIROUX said police are working with numerous witnesses. The incident has its roots in a birthday party held at the complex Saturday that got out of hand when rival gang members carrying handguns came face to face.
Ephraim was saying goodbye to some Friends, about to wheel his way home, when numerous shots were fired, neighbours said.
Toronto Police Chief Blair yesterday vowed to make Ephraim's shooters "pay for the terrible crime they committed."
He said he spoke with Mr. Miller and Attorney-General Michael Bryant, and both pledged to do "anything and everything that is required" to apprehend and prosecute the shooters, and to stop the trend of violence in the area.
He also implored the community not to engage in retaliation.
"That will not bring the young boy back," he said.

Fatal stabbing shakes Toronto schools
Scarborough student slain at lunchtime
By TIMOTHY APPLEBY with reports from Unnati GANDHI, Jennifer LEWINGTON, Karen HOWLETT and Shawn McCARTHY, Page A1
Toronto -- In a lunch-hour confrontation that dispatched fresh shock waves across Toronto's school system, a 16-year-old Scarborough student was stabbed to death yesterday on a walkway leading from his high school.
Homicide detectives were hunting at least one suspect, seen fleeing the crime scene at Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute in a speeding car, and offered little insight into why the youth - identified by CTV News last night as Denesh MURUGIAH - had been killed.
Suspicion, however, immediately fell on a long-simmering rivalry between Tamil factions, whose animosity is believed responsible for a firebombing and a stabbing in the same neighbourhood in April.
What was certain was that the teen's death came just four months after the shooting death of teenager Jordan MANNERS in a high school on the other side of the city. And, moreover, it had the hallmarks of being planned.
"My Friends told me they saw the victim standing there when two guys came up behind him and said, 'Do you want to do this now?' recounted Ajay MANGARA, 18, who lives a few doors from the school, near Lawrence Avenue and Kennedy Road.
"Then they saw the guy screaming on the ground, 'Help me, help me.' "
The teen was stabbed several times in the stomach and showed no vital signs when paramedics responded to the 12: 05 p.m. call. He died soon after in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
Word on the street is that the killing stemmed from "Tamil reprisals," Mr. MANGARA said, echoing the opinion of a Lawrence Avenue pizza parlour operator that caters to many Winston Churchill pupils.
If so, it is not the first time police attention has been drawn to a Tamil-based gang conflict, loosely spread across half a dozen Scarborough schools.
Students milling around the collegiate in the bright sunshine yesterday seemed to know little about the victim, a new arrival in his second week of school, and some appeared strikingly unaffected.
As television cameras hovered, several urged their Friends, "Don't snitch, don't talk."
Yesterday's killing was Toronto's 57th of 2007 - 11 more than had occurred at the same time last year.
The principal suspect is thought to be a male with brown skin, 17 or 18 years old, about 5 foot 5, wearing black jeans, a black zip-up hoodie and a bandana covering his face.
Also sought is a light blue Honda, probably a mid-1990s Civic, in which the killer or killers are believed to have fled.
Whether any of them also attended Winston Churchill was unknown.
But 41-year-old floor installer Jim NIKOLAKAKOS, an alumnus who has lived close to the walkway for most of his life, said the school has become markedly rougher in recent years and that tensions were often evident.
"There's a lot of rivalry going on in the school - kids from this school, kids from other schools - they get together in little gangs and it's all, 'You said this, you said that,' " he said.
"The whole school has changed; inside there's graffiti all over the place, it's not kept up. There's no respect any more for anything… Things have changed."
Others familiar with the sprawling 1,200-student school disagreed.
Jessica COPELAND, 19, was a student for five years and wept yesterday as she arrived home to learn what had taken place almost on the doorstep of her Flora Drive home.
"I just can't believe something like this would happen at Churchill it was a really good school for me, the teachers were nice," she said.
"There were incidents, yeah, but they were really contained and personally I never saw anybody with any weapons, not in five years. Nothing ever got out of hand like this."
Toronto Police Service Inspector Kathryn MARTIN said much the same.
"I'm very familiar with the neighbourhood, I've spent 13 years working in 41 Division and this is a very good school… so I'm thinking this is an incident unrelated to the school itself."
Winston Churchill, however, is adjacent to a community centre that last year installed closed-circuit cameras because of fights. And in the past, local councillor Michael THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON has asked nearby retailers not to sell knives.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said of yesterday's homicide that he was "not shocked but saddened."
Gerry CONNELLY, director of education at the Toronto District School Board, denied rumours that the victim had been transferred to Winston Churchill because of behavioural problems.
In fact, she said, the teen was a new student because he and his family had moved into the Lawrence and Kennedy area from Don Mills.
"I can't speak to behavioural issues, but he was not a transfer student," she said.
The fatal stabbing nonetheless reignited the issue of safe schools, which erupted in May after 15-year-old Jordan MANNERS was shot to death at his school in the Keele and Finch area.
As police quizzed witnesses: at nearby 41 Division yesterday, Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON of the homicide squad alluded to Jordan's death, in which two 17-year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder, and appealed for public help.
"Do the right thing, come forward, man up," he urged the suspect.
Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty commented on the stabbing during a campaign stop in Markham, Ontario, last night. "As Premier, and maybe more importantly just as a dad, I wanted to express my deepest sympathies to the family and Friends of this young man who lost his life today in a senseless tragedy," he said.
Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory described the homicide as symptomatic of a larger problem - the Liberal government's alleged failure to crack down on violent crime.
"We simply let this kind of thing go on," Mr. Tory said. "We simply have to deal with this kind of crime and the causes of this kind of crime."

LEWIS
In loving memory of my Dad, John LEWIS, who passed away January 16, 2003.
There were times you thought I didn't see,
Or that I didn't hear
Life's lessons that you taught me,
But I did get every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all
Or that we'd grow apart.
But Dad I picked up everything,
It's written in my heart.
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
I've grown up with your values
And I am so glad I did.
Throughout the years and all the tears,
I saw you get tired
So frightened I'd become,
And sad that this could be.
I tried to stay so strong for you,
To never see me cry.
I know you did the same for me
You'd even thought I didn't see
The tears you tried to hide
As I stood there by your side.
I thought you'd be okay now
To do simple things again.
All that you suffered seemed so unfair,
I still don't understand why
After all the hurdles that passed you by.
Please God, not for a while, yet I feared.
Deep down I knew the end was near.
And with God's grace
You left so suddenly
And didn't even say good-bye.
So many things still to say and do,
Dad, how I needed you.
To see your face, and hear your voice
To know I can't, it's not my choice.
For in my heart, you hold a place
No one can ever fill.
Poppa, in life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
I cannot express how proud
I am to have had you as my Dad.
"Miegwetch" Poppa.
Your daughters, Thecla and Patricia.

DAVIES, John Picton and Beverley Ann (née LEWIS)
John Picton DAVIES died suddenly of congestive heart failure on Thursday, November 8, 2007. He was 87. Born in Ton Pentre, Wales in 1920, Picton enjoyed Jack London novels, hiking, exploring caves, and climbing mountains. His determination and intelligence led to notable achievements throughout his life. At age ten he played violin in an otherwise all-adult orchestra. He won scholarships to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University. After graduating from Cambridge, he joined the British Army 3rd Infantry Division, where he was the youngest officer in his battalion. On June 12, 1944 at the age of twenty-four he landed in France in command of a landing craft, and thirty men. He fought through France and Germany, and remained in the occupying forces until after the war ended. He emigrated to Canada in 1947 and began a successful corporate career in Montreal and later Toronto. He married Iris Elanor BENTLEY in 1958. They had three sons Tudor, Morgan, and Trevor. Iris died of cancer in March, 1969. Picton remarried that December to Beverly Ann LEWIS, a primary school teacher. With her encouragement he earned his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Charter, and started his own business, The Polymetric Report. He retired in the year 2000 at the age of eighty. He remained independent and active until the very end. Beverley Ann DAVIES (née LEWIS) died at home on November 11, 2007 at age 74, at home, with her family, after a lengthy and courageous battle against Hepatitis C with multiple complications. Born in 1933 in Guelph, Ontario, she often reminisced about growing up in Peterborough during the Great Depression. After her first day of school, she told her mother, 'I love school. I'm going to be a teacher.' Ann grew up to be a highly respected elementary school teacher in Hamilton, Calgary and Toronto. She took particular pride in teaching children to read. Former students would often greet her decades later with fond memories of her classes. Ann married Picton DAVIES in 1969. They enjoyed travels in Europe and New England and had a particular love for Stowe, Vermont. Ann often combined her love of travel with her activities in the Peace movement and Voice of Women. She was also an active member of Parkwoods United Church. Ann's generous, outgoing nature, her marvelous stories and unique sense of humour brought joy to many people. She will be deeply missed by her family and her many Friends. Ann and Picton are survived by Ann's sister Barbara, Picton's brother Mostyn and his sister Moya, their sons Tudor, Morgan and Trevor, and their grandchildren Meredith and Graham. A Celebration of Life for Ann and Picton DAVIES will be held at Parkwoods United Church, 85 Parkwoods Village Drive, Don Mills, Ontario on Friday, November 16 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to your favorite charity would be appreciated by their family.

LEWIS, Richard
Husband, father, friend, canoeist, pharmacist, philanthropist. Born March 19, 1948, in Sudbury. Died May 29 in Toronto of leukemia, aged 59.
By Jan SILVERMAN, Page L6
Richard was a gentleman and a gentle man.
As a pharmacist who took the time to make house calls, Richard expressed his caring and sense of community through his profession.
When he delivered prescriptions to clients who were elderly or confined to home he would organize their medications and check their medicine cabinets to make sure they didn't have products that had expired or weren't needed.
Richard donated blood and platelets, and on one of these occasions he discovered he had leukemia. The disease ran through him in eight months. Yet during that time he greeted his first niece and saw Friends married in his back garden.
Everyone who saw the garden remarked on its beauty, but it was never Richard's intention to impress others with his actions. He did things simply because they gave him joy, or because they were the right things to do.
Richard was delighted by the nurturing involved in being a dad, even though he had hardly touched a baby before the first of our two children arrived. In 1981, there was no maternity leave for people who adopted a child, so I was back at work in six days and Richard happily took on 50 per cent of the responsibility for tiny Mara, our daughter.
When Richard set himself a goal, he accomplished it. One of these was to build a canoe. Even while working long hours as a pharmacist, he took a course and built a cedarstrip canvas canoe, which he dedicated to our son, Jesse.
Canoeing and the outdoors were a big part of Richard's life. Every year, we went on a canoe trip to Killarney, Ontario Richard was the planner, making sure everything was organized. A friend called him Ranger Rick - he was always prepared.
Richard quietly gave his time and money to causes that were important to him, including Project C.A.N.O.E., which provides wilderness canoe trips for at-risk youth, and Darchei Noam - The Reconstructionist Synagogue of Toronto.
Although raised in a non-practising Jewish family, Richard loved being part of this community and joined the fundraising committee for the synagogue's new building. The community responded by being there in action and in spirit throughout his illness.
It is ironic that drugs would fail this pharmacist, never offering him a day's remission. Richard hung on for our 28th anniversary on May 27, when we renewed our vows in a lovely, simple bedside ceremony before our children.
I offered Richard excitement and he offered me peace and understanding. I was his inhale, and he was my exhale.
Jan SILVERMAN is Richard's wife.
