Woman killed by garbage truck identified
The Canadian Press, Page A14
Toronto -- Toronto police have finally been able to identify a woman who was struck and killed by a garbage truck near Yonge and Lawrence on Monday morning - 74-year-old Nobuko SAGARA.
She carried no identification at the time, which made it difficult for police to find out who she was. Detective Paul LOBSINGER says a tip came late Tuesday night from one of Ms. SAGARA's neighbours.
Ms. SAGARA's brothers and sisters were contacted and made a positive identification in the city's 40th traffic fatality of the year.

Fanshawe student aimed to help others
Ashley GARROD, killed in a Highway 401 crash, was studying for child, youth work.
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Thurs., September 13, 2007
Ashley GARROD seemed destined for a career helping others.
Working alongside her mother to help those struggling with self abuse, the 22-year-old Fanshawe student was in her second year studying to become a child and youth worker.
The mother and daughter were killed Tuesday after their car was hit by a transport truck in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road.
It was the first of two deadly 401 crashes that day.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces charges, including failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death.
GARROD was described yesterday by her peers as being "extremely bright," "always smiling" and "creative."
Her mother, 52-year-old B.J. THOM, also known as Elizabeth, was executive director of Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who inflict pain on themselves.
"It was such a shock when I heard," said Mary GRAHAM, the founder of Self Abuse Finally Ends. "B.J. was a very kind and caring person. She was just amazing."
THOM, a Toronto native, took over the group from Graham in 1998. She battled with self abuse for years, GRAHAM said.
Fanshawe College spokesperson Jeff SAGE said students and staff who knew the mother and daughter were deeply saddened by the news of their deaths.
"It's a huge loss to the social services community."
Students can meet with counsellors and chaplains at the college to help them with their grief, he said.
Only hours after GARROD and THOM were killed, a second fatal crash occurred where a roadblock had been set up to divert traffic from the scene.
As a transport truck slowed down for the roadblock, a second transport hit it.
Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of Essex County, driver of the second transport, was killed.
Western Region Ontario Provincial Police report there have been 10 fatal crashes in September, resulting in 12 deaths, many which could have been prevented.
"This trend is very distressing," said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police. Speed, following too closely and not paying attention appear to be the major factors, he said.
"If people are in a hurry, they drive aggressively," said GRAHAM, adding that following too closely and driving too fast were factors in McDERMOTT's death.
"Thousands of other cars had made that merge into the road closure without a collision," he said.
"He paid the ultimate price for driving incorrectly."
Highway Safety Tips
Calling the recent spate of deadly crashes on local roads "distressing," Ontario Provincial Police offer the following safety tips:
- Slow down.
- Leave about four car spaces between your vehicle and the next.
- Concentrate on your driving.
- Leave 10 minutes early so you won't be as tempted to rush if you come across traffic delays.
- Drivers who see a collision on a highway should pull over to a safe place and offer assistance when it's possible or get to the next exit and call police.

SAGERT, Peter
Born November 4, 1945
Peter loved a challenge; his two year struggle with cancer was among the most difficult he dealt with in his life, which ended peacefully at his North Vancouver home on October 10, 2007. Raised in Niagara Falls, even as a small child Peter knew there was something wrong about the pervasive smell and taste of steel mills in the region. As he grew, he also saw the need for industry. This awareness led him to his life goal: to help industry and environment coexist in harmony. After completing a degree in mechanical engineering at Queens (1969) and a master's in atmospheric studies at Colorado State (1971), he became an early member of the environmental group of the British Columbia government. He went on to work as an air management engineer at British Columbia Hydro before becoming an air quality management consultant. As principal of Cirrus Consultants for almost 25 years, this role, and his commitment to his work, took him throughout the province and overseas. At times he talked about early retirement, but there was always another project, another challenge, to take on. He is survived by his wife Jean, who lovingly nursed him through his long illness; his sister, Sandra; his three children Pamela, John, and Laura (Miguel ANGEL) - who have been an immense source of pride, support, and love especially throughout this difficult time; and Mel and Leo, his two lovely, lively grandchildren in Mexico City. Predeceased by his beloved dog, Bear, as his strength waned, Peter found comfort both in his faith in his Lord and in the idea that death would, in some way, find him walking again with Bear on the North Shore mountains he called home for 33 years. Peter and his family want to thank Doctors P. Klimo and S. Chow, the in-hospital (Lions Gate) and community healthcare professionals with whom he came in contact for their care and support. No funeral by request. Peter asked instead that we share the following thoughts with you: 'Throughout my working life I sought to balance the need for industry and the need to protect the world we live in. This is a responsibility we all share. In my personal life, I came to fully understand, perhaps later than I should have, the importance of taking responsibility for our own lives and taking time to let our family know how much we love them. For this reason, it would be most meaningful to me if you were to remember me not with a ceremony but by working less, playing more, taking care of your health, and spending more time with your family. Thank you. Pete.' Good night, Max

SAGMAN, Sadok (Febrary 2, 1927-January 7, 2007)
Passed away peacefully in his 80th year, at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal. Devoted husband of Carmina Araujo SAGMAN. Beloved father of Sara and Ruth, Uri (Sandra), Doron (Yolanda), and Shaul. Grandfather of Gabriel, Reuben and Nathaniel; Aaron, Joel and Evan; Irene and Christine, Daniel and Stephanie. Survived by his brother Ezra. Predeceased by his parents, Flora and David SAGMAN, his brothers Eliyahu and Chaim, and by his first wife, Arlette Politi SAGMAN. Reflecting his Biblical name, meaning "the righteous," Sadok believed in justice and dedicated himself to the values important to him: family and education. The second of four brothers, he was born and raised in Baghdad. In the 1940s, after his family was forced to flee Iraq, he fought for the new State of Israel. In Israel, Sadok married Arlette POLITI, studied economics at the University of Tel Aviv, and became a banker. In 1966, seeking greater opportunities, he emigrated with his young family to Canada, where he worked as an economist for the Federal Government in Ottawa and established himself as a chartered accountant and subsequently as a real estate entrepreneur in Montreal. After the sudden death of his first wife in 1969, he raised three sons alone and later also cared for his aging parents, who joined the household. In 1979 Sadok married Carmina ARAUJO, whom he cherished, and enjoyed a new round of fatherhood with his adored daughters Sara and Ruth. With these blessings came renewed energy and purpose. Throughout his life he remained disciplined, active and optimistic, a fighter to the end. He was truly a self-made man, whose remarkable focus and determination will continue to inspire. The family is grateful to the caring staff of the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, with particular thanks to Doctor Harvey Chang of the Palliative Care Unit, and also to Doctor Paul GREIG and Doctor Eric CHEN of the University Health Network in Toronto. A memorial service was held on January 7 in Montreal. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Jewish General Hospital Foundation, (514) 340-8251 or www.jgh.ca
