Gunfire outbreak yields six casualties in 10 days
By Tim SHUFELT, Page A9
The shooting of Munit WALIA on Monday in the city's west end capped off a 10-day outbreak of fatal gunfire, pushing the number of gun-related homicides to levels not seen since the so-called "year of the gun" in 2005.
Police found Mr. WALIA, 27, around 9 p.m. in his car suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the Martingrove Road and Finch Avenue West area. He was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police are now investigating whether he uttered the names of his attackers in the voice mail message he was leaving his pregnant girlfriend moments before he was shot.
Nobody has yet been charged in the death of Mr. WALIA, as is the case in four of the six shooting fatalities in the last 10 days.
The killing of Kimel FOSTER, 21, outside the Town Talk Restaurant and Bar near Vaughan Road and Oakwood Avenue, kicked off a bloody weekend in the early morning hours of July 21. Mr. FOSTER died from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, while a second victim survived.
The next morning, 11-year-old Ephraim BROWN died from a bullet to the neck, followed by the separate shootings of Shawn JAMES and Amin AAFI. First-degree murder charges were laid against two people last week in the death of Mr. JAMES, 31, who police say was killed by shots fired from the window of a Beck taxicab near Wellesley and Sherbourne Streets. Police are still searching for a third suspect.
Mr. AAFI, 24, arrived at hospital after shots rang out in Flirt Lounge in the nightclub district. He died from a single gunshot wound, while a second man was treated at hospital for a shot to the leg.
The next casualty was 25-year-old Michael GEORGE, described as a well-liked aspiring rapper, who was targeted as he exited his car in the Meadowvale Road and Finch Avenue West area on Sunday. Mr. GEORGE was not known to police.
In addition to the arrests stemming from the death of Mr. JAMES, police have also charged two people with first-degree murder in the Ephraim BROWN case. The other homicides are under investigation and police are searching for suspects.

Friends mourn a man who was cheerful, selfless
Constable Rob PLUNKETT is York Regional Police's first fatality in the line of duty in more than two decades
By Timothy APPLEBY and Alan CAIRNS and Tim SHUFELT, Page A8
On the chilly February day nine years ago, when 78-year-old Katherine TOPPI's car skidded across a frozen lake and then plunged through the ice close to the retirement home in Markham where she lived, her prospects could scarcely have been more dire.
Ms. TOPPI had suffered a stroke and lost control of her vehicle, which now was submerged in a couple of metres of bone-numbing water.
Fortunately for her, a couple of uniformed guardian angels were on hand.
One was York Regional Police Constable Brent LUCKASAVITCH; the other his partner, Constable Rob PLUNKETT.
Together the policemen carried an inflatable boat out across the ice and paddled it out to the stricken car, the windshield of which Constable PLUNKETT smashed with his baton. They then scooped the shivering Ms. TOPPI to safety.
A cheerful, gregarious father of three and a star athlete who ran triathlons and excelled at half a dozen other strength-testing sports, Constable PLUNKETT won a bravery award for the rescue and would likely have said it was all in a day's work.
But the volunteer work he did, over and above a 22-year police career cut short early yesterday morning, set him apart.
And his particular passion was in working with mentally handicapped athletes.
"He had a tremendous impact; he's been a great inspiration for everyone who knew him. This is a huge loss," said Deborah BRIGHT, president and Chief Executive Officer of Special Olympics Canada. "He was just one of these good people you don't meet very often in your life."
When York Regional Police played host to the Ontario Special Olympics in 2000, Constable PLUNKETT chaired the bidding team, raising close to $1-million for the roughly 800 participants, drawn from almost 100 countries. Five events took centre stage: floor hockey, five- and 10-pin bowling, swimming and powerlifting.
As well, he was for many years instrumental in organizing the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run, since 1987 the favoured charity of Ontario's police.
"Rob was one of our top fundraisers for more than 15 years," Special Olympics Ontario president Glen MacDONELL said.
"He really believed in what the Special Olympics did for people with intellectual disabilities and he was really engaged in the community. It was in his nature to be that way and he was well thought of right around the world. He was recognized locally, provincially, nationally and internationally because he was one of the best."
Why did he do it? It was not because he had any vested interest. None of his three children - two sons aged 16 and 14 and an 18-year-old daughter - bore any of the handicaps shared by the people whose cause he championed.
"He didn't do this for any obvious reasons - he was just a great man, he loved doing things for other people," said Constable Alan RICHARDSON of the Timmins Police Service, the National Torch Run co-ordinator.
"He had no connection with the Special Olympics other than that he was a police officer and that's our charity of choice. He was just a great family man who loved sports. Everybody he touched and talked to and got to know held him close to their hearts."
Constable PLUNKETT spent several years with the York Regional Police tactical squad, one of the more hazardous police duties, before switching to undercover surveillance work.
"As a police officer you'd think that might be a safer job," Constable RICHARDSON said. "But you know, there is no safe job as a police officer."
In Constable PLUNKETT's small hometown of Midhurst, just north of Barrie, residents were reeling yesterday after learning their neighbour and friend was the fallen policeman they had heard about in news reports. One family friend broke into tears.
"He was a really lovely man, with a really strong family," she said, asking not to be named, before running to the PLUNKETT home. Constable PLUNKETT's widow, a school teacher, was "devastated," the woman said.
The PLUNKETT family sat on the front porch of their grey-brick house on what is normally a quiet street. Cars lined the tree-filled front yard as Friends and family gathered to offer support.
A spokesman for the family said they were too distraught to speak about their loss. A friend of the PLUNKETTs' youngest son said he went over to the family's house after hearing the news.
"He's upset, but it hasn't really sunk in," said 14-year-old Brian HUGHES. "No one wants to believe it's true."
By every account, the veteran officer was a well-liked, if private, neighbour.
Roland DEMPSTER, a 30-year community resident, was aware that Constable PLUNKETT was a policeman but only knew him well enough to wave from his yard.
Mr. DEMPSTER shook his head at what he said was a senseless crime.
"For an airbag? Does that make any sense to you?" he said. "It's sad our society's going that way."
The PLUNKETTs' oldest child, Amanda, is preparing to go to university in the fall, said Kay RADMAN, a co-worker at the nearby Sears department store.
"She's a wonderful girl; we just love her," she said of Amanda, who attended Ms. RADMAN's 50th birthday party last weekend.
In yesterday's wilting heat, flags at all city facilities in the City of Vaughan flew at half mast, as they did at Toronto police stations, to honour the slain officer. They will remain that way until Constable PLUNKETT's funeral.
"Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers are with his family," Vaughan Mayor Linda JACKSON said in a statement. "The full meaning of the police motto, 'To serve and protect,' is brought home to all of us today by today's tragic event."

Mother's actions saved child from certain death, police say
By Unnati GANDHI with a report from Tim SHUFELT, Page A14
Simply put, Jackie DO VALE- AVELAR lived for her daughter.
From play dates to cooking, drawing to shopping, the 25-year-old mother's every breath was for her three-year-old baby girl, Orbela.
That included her last.
As Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR drove home early yesterday morning to her waiting husband in Brampton, her Dodge SX collided with a tractor-trailer. Police say the truck driver fled the scene, and Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR's badly damaged car came to a stop across two lanes of the eastbound 401 near Cambridge.
Police later found the semi near Napanee, and arrested the driver for failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR grabbed Orbela and put her in the ditch beside the highway's shoulder. But she returned to her totalled car, probably for her cellphone, police say.
As she tried to get in through the driver's door at about 4: 45 a.m. with her back to oncoming traffic, another rig plowed into her. She was pinned.
Ontario Provincial Police Constable David WOODFORD said she likely died on impact.
He said Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR did the right thing by immediately getting her daughter to safety, preventing what could have been an even greater tragedy.
"She got her child out. She saved her child's life, because the child would have been killed," he said.
To her closest Friends, the act of bravery sounded every bit like Jackie.
Candice SHERRETT, who said her Friendship with Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR dates back to elementary school, remembers the day Orbela was born.
"Jackie's life had been fulfilled," she told The Globe and Mail. "… I think some comfort can be taken knowing that Jackie died knowing her daughter was safe and out of harm's way."
Yesterday, Orbela was told, "Mommy has gone to heaven," she said.
Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR's husband, parents, and younger sister, Ligia, were too distraught to comment yesterday.
Jackie DO VALE married her high school sweetheart six years ago after graduating from Saint_Joseph's College School in downtown Toronto. The couple moved to Brampton and their daughter was born three years later.
Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR worked two jobs so Orbela could have whatever she wanted, said one of her best Friends, Alex POLICARPO, 25. During the week, she was a secretary at a local car dealership. On weekends, she worked at a laundromat.
"She liked to do everything in life. She was always the first to try things out," Ms. POLICARPO said.
When Ms. POLICARPO had her baby shower in July, Ms. DO VALE- AVELAR was the first to give her advice. "She told me to tell my husband to do all the work. I was supposed to just sit back and relax," Ms. POLICARPO said.
The Ontario Provincial Police also investigated another serious collision yesterday, in which a 70-year-old woman visiting from Trinidad was killed and three others were injured.
The four were travelling in the Niagara-bound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way near St. Catharines with a house trailer in tow just after 7 a.m. As their truck approached a construction zone, it suddenly veered off into a grassy shoulder at highway speed and struck a tree, Constable WOODFORD said.
The Ontario Provincial Police says 295 people have been killed in traffic accidents in the province so far this year, up from 280 in the same period in 2006.

SHULTIS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-08 published
SHULTIS, Doctor William Kenneth (1915-2007)
Dr. William Kenneth SHULTIS died suddenly of a heart attack on Friday, June 1, 2007 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada at the age of 92 years. He was born on March 24, 1915 in Port Colborne, Ontario to Doctor John and Mary Lavina Dawn SHULTIS. He was the youngest of four children. His brothers, John and Everett, and sister Vera all have predeceased him. After graduating from Port Colborne High School in 1932, he enrolled at McMaster University where he excelled at tennis and hockey. In 1933 he enrolled in Dentistry at the University of Toronto. During the summers of his University years he was a popular counsellor at Camp Ahmek on Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park, where he inspired in his young campers a great love of the outdoors during his many extended canoe trips. Upon graduation, Doctor SHULTIS practiced General Dentistry in Toronto from 1938 to 1942. In 1942 he joined the Royal Canadian Dental Corps and served his country for two years in the Air force and one year each in the Navy and Army. Upon discharge in 1946, Doctor SHULTIS took postgraduate training in Orthodontics at the University of Toronto, graduating in 1947. He then started, in Toronto, a private Orthodontics practice which he ran until his retirement in early 1988. He developed several novel techniques in Orthodontia, which he taught as an associate of Orthodontics in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto from 1947-57. He also served in 1953 as chair of the Orthodontics section of the Canadian Dental Association, and in 1958 as chair of the Orthodontics Study Club. He was a long term member of the Granite Club in Toronto, and later when he moved to Calgary in 1991 he was a member of the Calgary Golf and Country Club. In 1940 Doctor SHULTIS was married to the former Dahlia Roberta AINLAY in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Ken was predeceased by his wife Dahlia in 1979. He later married the former Jean Margaret VANSTONE (McCORMICK) in 1980 in Galt, Ontario. Jean predeceased Ken in 2005. Doctor SHULTIS is survived by two children from his first marriage: Doctor John Kenneth (Susan) SHULTIS of Manhattan, Kansas, and their daughters Kate (Ed) WENNINGER and Carrie (Nate) REITZ and granddaughters Abby, Anna, Cara, and Millie; and Dahlia Sue (Jack) WOOD of Calgary. From his second marriage, Ken is survived by Jean's three children: Barbara Elizabeth (Jim) BRIGNALL of Calgary, and sons Chris (Alisha) BRIGNALL and Eric BRIGNALL and grand_son Keenan; Helen Margaret (Bruce) MURRAY of St. Catharines, and daughters Chandra and Jillian and Frederick Walter (Patty) VANSTONE of Vancouver and daughters Sheila and Laurie. Doctor SHULTIS will be remembered as a very kind and generous person, always of good humour, and with concern for others. He never met a stranger, making Friends with his congeniality and his signature butterscotch candy. His children remember the skating years at the Granite Club, and the wonderful canoe trips with him in Algonquin Park; his grandchildren treasure the stories he told; and his great-grandchildren remember his extraordinary whistling. A private family gathering will be held in Calgary. A Private Family Graveside Service will be held at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto on Thursday, June 21, 2007.

SHUTLER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-07-07 published
SHUTLER, Richard Jr. (December 8, 1921-June 28, 2007)
Professor Emeritus, Simon Fraser University
Died peacefully on the evening of June 28th in the arms of his wife Jamie at Saint Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, after having had a stroke the same morning. Richard is survived by his second wife Jamie EVRARD, his first wife Mary Elizabeth 'Betty' SHUTLER with whom he had three children, sons John Hall and Richard Burnett, granddaughter Tessa Marie HOPLIN (James,) and sister Muriel Ericson (Roger) and predeceased by his daughter Kathryn ALLICE. A happy man who deeply loved and was loved by his family and Friends, Richard had a generous, collegial temperament and wide ranging interests in the field of archaeology and way beyond. Having spent over fifty years in the field, Richard seems to have lived many lives. Born in 1921 in Longmont, Colorado, he attended Salinas Jr. College, then inspired by the exploits of the famous paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews in the Gobi desert he went on to get an Alberta and an M.A. in anthropology at U of California, Berkeley followed by a Ph.D. from U of Arizona in 1961. His education was interrupted by a stint in the Aleutian Islands as a diesel mechanic with the U.S. Army during the Second World War. Richard married Mary Elizabeth HALL in 1951 and soon after they went off to New Caledonia with E.W. Gifford, a legendary California archaeologist. Shortly after Richard became intensely interested in a pottery type that had begun to appear in some of the islands of the Pacific. This pottery, later dubbed 'Lapita', became perhaps the foremost tool that archeologists use in tracing man's early dispersal into the Pacific. Richard also did extensive archeological work in the American Great Basin, Hawaii, the Philippines where he married his second wife Jamie EVRARD, an artist whom he had met in Iowa in 1979, Vanuatu, the Gilbert Islands, Tubuai, Fefan Island, Truk, Fiji, China and most recently, Tonga. In 2005 the French Government feted Richard in Noumea, New Caledonia on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Lapita pottery on that island. Two books were produced in his honor and archaeologists came from around the world to give papers in celebration of Richard's long career in Pacific archaeology. Richard maintained an office at Simon Fraser University until he died. Richard had many interests outside of archeology and especially enjoyed travelling to Italy with Jamie, buying and restoring a villa there, and collecting fresh figs. Richard lovvd expeditions, anything yellow, the opera, the novels of Joseph Conrad and Somerset Maugham, mango pudding, the paintings of Camille Pissarro and Picasso's huge steel sculptures, secret pockets in travel clothing, the Oakland Raiders, Beethoven's symphonies, chocolate milk shakes, Tiger Woods, and his gigantic and devoted cat Boodles. A memorial service will be held at 4: 30 p.m. on Thursday, September 20th at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia Gifts in Richard's memory gratefully received by the Healthy Heart Program at Vancouver General Hospital and University of British Columbia Hospital Foundation, 855 W. 12th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z 1M9.
