These conversations would often take place at the dinner table, where Reg greatly enjoyed many years of delicious meals and excellent wine (and good television afterwards).

United in their grief
Strength in numbers: More than 1,000 attend the funeral of slain couple Hélène and Bill REGIER.
By John MINER, Sun Media, Tues., July 31, 2007
More than 1,000 people attend the funeral and burial services yesterday of Bill and Hélène REGIER at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. The couple was found slain in their Mount Carmel home last Monday. Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for 22-year-old Jesse Norman IMESON of Windsor, in connection with the deaths. (Derek RUTTAN, Sun Media)
Mount Carmel -- With prayers, hymns and tears, Hélène and Bill REGIER were laid to rest yesterday within sight of their Huron County farmstead, where they were found slain a week ago.
More than 1,000 mourners gathered for the funeral, many arriving 90 minutes early.
The crowd filled Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church and its yard, some standing for more than two hours when the seats filled up.
Two Ontario Provincial Police officers in dress uniform flanked the church entrance, saluting as the two caskets were carried by grand_sons and nephews into the service that was also attended by Bishop Ronald FABBRO of the London Catholic diocese.
The REGIERs had been active church members in Mount Carmel, north of London.
Bill REGIER was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and a huge advocate of restoration of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.
Hélène served with the Catholic Women's League for more than 50 years and was a past London diocesan president.
Despite the brutal killing of their loved ones, the REGIER family spoke of forgiveness and hope yesterday, remembering the deep faith, love of life and generosity of the couple, in their early 70s.
"They have taught all of us throughout the years about strength, faith, family values and most importantly forgiveness. That is what we must remember now," said granddaughter Nikki DENOMY in a tribute as the service began.
DENOMY said her grandparents faced their own tragedy when a fire 32 years ago destroyed the family home and killed a grandmother.
"Grandma and grandpa (Bill and Hélène REGIER,) with six children, surrounded themselves with God, kept on praying and continued farming. Soon enough they had rebuilt their family home and were a closer family than ever before," said DENOMY.
"Our family will once again bind together, carrying on all the values that the most beautiful couple in the world taught us."
Together as a family we will watch the wheat grow, the corn harvest, listen to the birds sing, watch the sun rise and sun set, because difficult times don't last forever," she said.
Grandson Nathan REGIER thanked the community for its support in tragic times.
While it might be hard to find a silver lining in the dark cloud of the horrible event, REGIER said there was one.
"Grandpa and grandma were practically inseparable since the day they met. You would never think of one without the other close in mind. If one were to have passed before the other, the other one would not have been the same," he said.
Both grandchildren said it was difficult to be in a sour mood around their grandparents.
REGIER described stopping in at his grandparents on the way home from work, catching up on the farm news from his grandfather while his grandmother would be in constant motion, making sure he had two days' worth of food in his stomach.
"When she finally realized she had cooked enough for six people, I wasn't allowed to go home without three days worth of leftovers," he said.
DENOMY said that Helene's grandchildren all knew grandma had a drawer filled with little gifts.
"If you ever mentioned you liked something in the house, you pretty much knew you were taking it home. It never failed: She would say, 'you like it, you want it, you have it.' "
She said the sun just seemed to shine a little brighter around her grandparents.
"Let's not be sad or angry that they are gone, but just thankful that we are blessed to have them here in the first place," she said.
Rev. Ray LAWHEAD, the parish priest at Mount Carmel, said the REGIERs' death had rocked the community, family and Friends.
"It was not nice news," he said.
LAWHEAD referred to the killing as a "horrendous act" and "evil."
"What do you do, how do we respond? As Jesus would say, and I am sure Bill and Hélène would say, there is only one response to evil like this and that is love."
Bill and Hélène were buried in the cemetery next to the church.
Jesse Norman IMESON, 22, wanted in the slayings of the REGIERs and a Windsor bartender days earlier, remains on the lam, despite intensive police efforts to find him.

MINETT, E. Everet (February 23, 1918-september 5, 2007)
Letting go when he was at peace, feeling the love of four generations of family. As a boy and a young man, Everet exhibited extraordinary gifts. He was a brilliant student. He attended University of Toronto Schools where he excelled in classics, languages, science, and music. He later studied math, physics, and chemistry at University of Toronto (Trinity College) and subsequently did graduate work in physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At age 8, Everet assumed a large measure of family leadership when his father died. Everet discovered his perfect love at age 15 when he saw Alice Caroline PARKER as an angel in a Christmas pageant at St. George's Church in Guelph, Ontario. They were married in 1941 and raised a family of 5 children as they traveled with extended stays in Norwalk, Connecticut, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Rochester, New York, and Toronto, Ontario, where Alice currently lives. But Everet's and Alice's lifelong geographical passion was Cognashene, Georgian Bay. Along with his wife and young children, Everet fashioned a magical summer paradise. The 40's, 50', 60's, and 70's were exciting times for a gifted scientist in the business world. Everet played significant roles in the Manhattan Project (40's), in the development of RCA's ENIAC and Remington-Rand's UNIVAC computer systems (50's), in senior positions at Xerox (60's), and as director of University of Toronto's UTLAS (70's). In addition, during the 70's and 80's Everet and wife, Alice, worked side by side at their own import and distribution venture in Toronto, The Canadian Tumbler Company. Everet loved us all and was an inspirational mentor. He taught us about fulcrums and levers, and that anything was possible. His children will never forget that inspiration: Peggy WILLARD and her husband, Joe; Charles MINETT and his wife, Nina; Doug MINETT; Jane MINETT and her husband, David KEITH and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa. Everet's grandchildren and great-grandchildren will also miss their loving grandfather: Doug WILLARD and his wife, Lorri, and their son, Owen; Suzanne WILLARD; Charlie MINETT; Arthur MINETT; George MINETT; Elizabeth MINETT; Ben MINETT and his wife, Stephanie; Hannah MINETT, her husband, Mike VANSTONE, and their sons, Quinn and Oleh; Alice KEITH; Andy KEITH, Chris KEITH and his wife Sue FRASER, and their children, Ellie and Gillian; Karina KEITH and her husband Brian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, and their children Sydney, Kira, and Adam; and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa, and their children, Everet, Wesley, and Sean. The family wishes to thank the caring and wonderful staff of Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to Saint Michael's Hospital Foundation: www.smh.toronto.on.ca or 416-864-5000. Calling hours at Morley Bedford funeral home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto on Sunday, September 9th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Monday from 7 p.m. with service to follow at 8 pm.

Boater feared drowned
The Strathroy man's wife saw him slip under the water in Balsam Lake, Ontario Provincial Police say.
By April KEMICK, Sun Media, Fri., July 13, 2007
Thrown from a sailboat on the waters of a Lindsay-area lake, the last thing Justin SIPLE saw before he disappeared under the waves was the face of his young wife.
The Strathroy father of two wasn't wearing a life-jacket when he, his wife, daughter and a family friend were tossed from the boat Wednesday night.
Yesterday, SIPLE, 29, was the focus of a search on Balsam Lake, largest of the Kawartha lakes, north of Lindsay.
Ontario Provincial Police officers, divers, emergency workers and volunteers have scoured the lake, but with little hope of finding SIPLE alive.
"The conditions on the lake were horrendous" when SIPLE was tossed into high waves amid heavy rain, Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Mark WOLFE said yesterday.
A string of boating deaths has prompted police and water safety advocates to call for increased use of life-jackets.
"If people wore a life-jacket when they boat, just like they put a seatbelt on when they drive, chances are the number of drownings would be reduced dramatically," said Barbara Byers, a director with the Lifesaving Society.
SIPLE's young wife, who was wearing a life-jacket when she was thrown from the five-metre boat, along with the couple's two-year-old daughter and the family friend, tried desperately to keep her husband afloat in the choppy waters, said WOLFE, of Kawartha Lakes Ontario Provincial Police.
But the conditions were too strong even for SIPLE, a stocky army reservist. Within minutes he disappeared, WOLFE said.
"The last (his wife) saw him, he was slipping under the water."
SIPLE's wife, daughter and a family friend were rescued by a passing boater, he said.
All had life-jackets, he said.
Yesterday, a fourth jacket -- stowed aboard for SIPLE, but not worn -- washed ashore.
The law doesn't require boaters wear life-jackets -- only that there be one aboard for every boater. Still,
Only a life-jacket could have saved SIPLE's life, said WOLFE.
"It wouldn't have mattered if he was the greatest swimmer," "He couldn't have manoeuvred that lake (Wednesday) night."
Last year, 80 per cent of boating related fatalities in Ontario Provincial Police-patrolled waters occurred when people weren't wearing life-jackets or personal flotation devices, said Ontario Provincial Police marine co-ordinator Sgt. Bob MINIELLY.
At least 60 per cent of this year's deaths also involved people not wearing life-jackets or flotation devices, he said.
SIPLE, a corporal with the 31 Combat Engineering Regiment out of Saint Thomas, was father to a four-month-old boy as well as his two-year-old daughter.
Pictures on SIPLE's online Facebook page portray a doting dad and proud reservist.
He was an "amazing husband," according to a passage on his wife's Facebook page.
SIPLE had been a reservist with the 31 Brigade for seven years, said Lt. James TERPSTRA, a brigade spokesperson.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and Friends," he said.
Police have pinpointed the area where the boat overturned and will scour it "every day until we find him," said WOLFE.
The search continues today.

McMICHAEL, Signe Kirsten (née SORENSEN,) LL.D., O.Ont.
It is with great sadness that the family and Friends of Signe McMICHAEL announce her death on July 4, 2007. Signe was born in Denmark on February 10, 1921 and, together with her parents and two sisters, immigrated to Canada in 1927. Upon their arrival the family settled on a farm in the Peace River Country, Alberta. After graduating from Alberta College, Signe spent the Second World War in Vancouver, serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force in communications. At war's end she moved to Toronto where, in 1949, she married Robert McMICHAEL. Together, Robert and Signe fulfilled their dream of building a log home on the banks of the Humber River in Kleinburg, Ontario, in which to showcase their growing collection of works by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Over the years, this wonderful art collection expanded to include many fine examples of works by Inuit and First Nations artists. From this modest beginning has grown the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Robert and Signe McMICHAEL's legacy to the country they both loved so much. Signe McMICHAEL was predeceased by her husband, Robert, and by her sister, Helen MINIKER. She is survived by her sister Astrid WRIGHT and by her nieces Penny FENWICK, Timmy MIDDLETON , and Deanna BETTY. Also surviving Signe are several grandnieces and nephews. The family will receive Friends at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, 10365 Islington Avenue, Kleinburg on July 8, 2007 between 4: 00 and 7:00 p.m. A funeral service will be held at the gallery at 11: 00 a.m. on July 9, 2007 followed by interment on the McMichael grounds. All funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Heritage Funeral Centre, Toronto, 416-423-1000.

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.

Housekeeper found dead in Mississauga mansion
By Timothy APPLEBY with a report from Unnati GANDHI, Page A14
The multimillion-dollar home of a successful Indo-Canadian businessman turned into an investigation scene yesterday after the lifeless body of a housekeeper was found inside, police said.
The 27-year-old woman was discovered inside a mansion on Doulton Place in the Mississauga Road and Dundas Street West area, after one of the homeowners called police Monday evening, Peel police Constable Adam MINNION said last night.
Neighbours said the victim was a domestic maid who was often seen in and around the house, which is surrounded by a wrought-iron fence and backs onto the Mississaugua Golf and Country Club.
The home was purchased in 1998 for $823,000 by Vasdev (Dave) CHANCHLANI, transferred to daughters Sonia and Tina CHANCHLANI for a nominal $2 and registered in the two women's names in 2004, property records show.
Mr. CHANCHLANI is the Chief Financial Officer of Toronto-based Sigma Global Solutions, while his wife, Jayshree, is a Brampton family physician. The couple also have a son, Neil, who is attending university in Britain.
Dr. CHANCHLANI did not answer calls to her cellphone yesterday evening.
Police released no names or a cause of death, but said they were looking for a suspect who likely knew the victim. They also confirmed she was a housekeeper.
Meanwhile, Toronto's homicide tally for the year rose to 64 early yesterday with the stabbing death of a pregnant 25-year-old North York woman whose common-law husband was arrested at the scene and charged with murder.
Aysan SESEN was stabbed in the abdomen. Her seven-month-old fetus died as a result of the violence, despite an emergency cesarian section in hospital.
However, there is no scope under the Criminal Code for laying murder charges involving an unborn child.
"A being has to be born and take a breath, basically," Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON of the homicide squad said.
A second woman, aged 44 and believed to be the mother of the accused, was also stabbed and was waiting last night for plastic surgery on a badly injured arm.
Turan COCELLI, 30, who is believed to be the father of Ms. SESEN's baby, faces charges of second-degree murder and aggravated assault.
Police from 31 Division were called at around 1 a.m. to a bungalow on Whitburn Crescent, near Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue West.
Det. Sgt. GRINTON would not say whether the 911 call came from Mr. COCELLI, an unemployed carpenter on compensation. But he confirmed that when police arrived at the home, the accused was there.
Both the accused and the two victims shared the home but there is no record of police having been called there before, Det. Sgt. GRINTON said, adding the baby would have been the couple's first child.
The woman believed to be Mr. COCELLI's mother remained under sedation and had not been interviewed, he added.

Housekeeper's death at Mississauga mansion treated as foul play
By Omar EL AKKAD and Jessica RAFUSE, Page A15
The death of Jocelyn DULNUAN, a Filipino-born, 27-year-old housekeeper found inside a multimillion-dollar mansion on Monday, is likely the result of foul play, Peel Regional Police say.
That sums up just about everything homicide detectives are willing to say.
"The location was targeted for a specific reason that I am not prepared to comment on today," Inspector Norm ENGLISH, head of the homicide bureau, said yesterday at a terse news conference.
"I do believe, though, that there was property taken from the residence, however this needs to be determined after doing a proper walk through with the homeowners," he said.
Ms. DULNUAN came to Canada last year on a work visa and worked as a nanny in various locations across the Greater Toronto Area before moving into the massive Mississauga home as a housekeeper, Insp. ENGLISH said.
Both Ms. DULNUAN and the home - estimated to be worth more than $10-million - may have been targets, he said, adding that Ms. DULNUAN's mother, who lives in Hong Kong, has been notified of her daughter's death.
But as to what condition Ms. DULNUAN's body was in, the cause of her death, what items were taken from the home and a host of other questions, Insp. ENGLISH would only reply: "I'm not prepared to discuss that."
Peel police spokesman Constable Adam MINNION said homicide detectives can sometimes choose to withhold information so as to not compromise an investigation. "If [homicide detectives are] reluctant to provide information, they must have their reasons," Constable MINNION said. "Every situation's different. There must be something they've seen there."
Police received a 911 call around 5 p.m. on Monday from one of the homeowners inside the home. The homeowners, Vasdev (Dave) CHANCHLANI and his wife Jayshree, were not home at the time of the incident, Constable MINNION said.
Police have not yet publicly named any suspects.
At several Toronto churches with strong Filipino followings, no one recognized Ms. DULNUAN by name or photo yesterday.
She was also not registered with Intercede, a group that advocates for the rights of domestic workers and caregivers.
"We've been getting calls all day," said counsellor Columbia DIAZ, who is hoping to use the agency's contacts to get in touch with Ms. DULNUAN's Friends. "A lot of Filipina maids are worried and want to know more, but there's not much that we know."
Ms. DIAZ said many caregivers and domestic workers prefer to work in populated areas instead of secluded homes with limited contact with the outside community.
Jo ACUNA, owner of Brampton-based Sunrise Placement Services, said live-in nannies tend to apply for a work permit under the federal live-in caregiver program.
The program stipulates that such employees must work in a private home and be provided a private, furnished room within that home.
Ms. ACUNA said the largest portion of such workers arrive from the Philippines, usually after first working in Hong Kong.
A representative from the Philippines consulate in Toronto said the consulate has been in contact with Ms. DULNUAN's mother, who is trying to arrange the transportation of her daughter's body back home.
