Celebrated guitarist Jeff HEALEY dies of cancer
By Colin FREEZE, Page A3
Toronto -- One of Canada's most famous guitar players has died.
Jeff HEALEY, a 41-year-old musician who sold more than a million records in the United States, died yesterday from cancer, a rare form of which took his eyesight as a child. The Torontonian's most famous hits included Angel Eyes, See the Light and a cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps by the Beatles.
"Early last year, HEALEY underwent surgery to remove cancerous tissue from his legs, and later from both lungs," said a statement posted on the musician's website yesterday. It continued: "aggressive radiation treatments and chemotherapy, however, failed to halt the spread of the disease."
The site noted that a rare form of the disease, retinoblastoma, took Mr. HEALEY's eyesight when he was a baby.
"He was a virtuoso guitar player, and they don't come along every five minutes," said Richard Flohil, a long-time friend of Mr. HEALEY's and, in recent years, his publicist. "He had an enormous range of musical genres he could play with great skill."
He said that children with retinoblastoma stand a 50-50 chance of developing other cancers later in life and that, because of this, Mr. HEALEY would quip, "I'm in the wrong 50 per cent."
At the apex of his popularity, Mr. HEALEY - who learned to play the guitar as a toddler and grew up to play with the instrument resting on his lap - was a fixture on rock radio. He was nominated for a Grammy and earned a Juno Award in 1990 as entertainer of the year. That year, he also played a musician in the movie Road House starring Patrick Swayze.
Over the years, the guitarist was increasingly involved in jazz. As the host of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's My Kind of Jazz, his programs often showcased his collection of thousands of 78-rpm records, many from the early 20th century. He also ran a couple of Toronto nightclubs that carried his name.
This spring, Mr. HEALEY had hoped to tour in support of a rock/blues album, Mess of Blues, which is being released in Europe this month and next month in North America.
The guitarist, who leaves his wife and two children, last blogged about his condition in January. "I will be off to a clinic in Henderson, Nevada, for the first two weeks of February as part of an eight-week program I'm going to take," he wrote. "This involves my alternative therapy, but my wife and I seem to feel that it offers up some very potentially positive results."
He expressed optimism, talking of impending tour dates.
"At time of writing, my energy is up, my spirit is strong and I'm ready for anything… We're all quite excited about the upcoming CD."

Blood clot caused Via rider's death, police say
By Colin FREEZE, Page A3
Toronto -- A short-lived pandemic scare, one that caused a train to be quarantined last Friday, actually resulted from a sedentary passenger's fatal blood clot, police have told The Globe and Mail.
Brenda BUCKLEY, a 43-year-old South African tourist travelling alone on a cross-Canada rail journey, died from a pulmonary embolism, authorities say. The condition, the worst-case outcome of a lesser malady known to travellers as deep-vein thrombosis, can result from protracted periods of sitting.
The condition has been known to arise on long-haul flights, but many observers are surprised it is being linked to rail travel. "This is not a condition Via [Rail] has ever encountered on any of its trains," Catherine Kaloutsky, a spokeswoman for the company, said last night. She said Via Rail doesn't warn passengers about the risk of thrombosis, but will review practices.
The rarity of the condition on train journeys may have contributed to the case's initial aura of inexplicability, which fuelled the infectious-disease speculation that garnered global headlines.
The Ontario Provincial Police say a host of factors conspired to cause police to fear the worst. Ms. BUCKLEY's death while travelling through Northern Ontario on Friday coincided with another passenger being airlifted to hospital after complaining of a severe respiratory problem. Five other passengers were also complaining of flu-like symptoms.
By Saturday, it was clear that all of the cases had arisen independently. Authorities issued a statement saying the five passengers were "afflicted by a common flu virus," the airlifted woman had a history of breathing difficulties, and that Ms. BUCKLEY had "died of natural causes."
Yesterday, The Globe asked an investigating Ontario Provincial Police officer to elaborate on the kinds of natural causes that could kill a 43-year-old. The death was "due to a pulmonary embolism," Detective Sergeant Michael PILON responded.
He explained that after an autopsy in Sudbury, a pathologist told him that the condition can result from someone "sitting in a car for a long period of time, or, in this case, sitting in a train."
Little is known about Ms. BUCKLEY, whose age had been estimated by some fellow passengers as about 20 years older than that listed in her passport. She had provided the travel agency with the name of a sister in South Africa as next of kin. "It came as a shock to the family," said Det. Sgt. PILON, who notified relatives.
The South African tourist had booked her Canadian trip through Trafalgar Tours, a company that promotes the "breathtaking scenery" of the Rockies, including their "snow-capped peaks, hanging glaciers, pounding waterfalls and surging rivers."
Ms. BUCKLEY had already spent several days on a train before crossing into Alberta from British Columbia last week. She boarded another train in Jasper, and had nearly completed the two-day trip to Sudbury when she began complaining of shortness of breath. "It was a very sudden event," Det. Sgt. PILON said.
In the past, airline agents have been forced to deal with similar incidents. "It may be we will see something like that two, three, four times a year with air traffic," said William LUCAS, a coroner for the province of Ontario. In an interview yesterday, he said he has never heard of any such case arising on a train. He expressed surprise, given that there is "a greater freedom of mobility on the train than there is on an airplane."
Blood circulation is often dependant on the mechanics of walking, Dr. LUCAS said, explaining that active leg muscles set about "squeegeeing, like toothpaste, your blood back into circulation."
Long periods of sitting cause the blood to pool in the legs and possibly coagulate into clots. Should a clot become dislodged from the legs and travel up to arteries that feed the lungs, it can spell disaster.
A funeral home in Timmins, Ontario, was making arrangements to send Ms. BUCKLEY's body back to South Africa.

Sport utility vehicle's driver sought in triple homicide
By Timothy APPLEBY with files from Colin FREEZE and the Canadian Press, Page A1
Toronto -- Homicide detectives Sunday night were hunting the driver of a bullet-riddled sport utility vehicle, found abandoned in a tranquil Etobicoke neighbourhood with the bodies of three young men inside.
All three had been shot to death and then apparently driven in a stolen Nissan Pathfinder to Lunness Road near the intersection of Browns Line and Lake Shore Boulevard, close to the dividing line between west Toronto and Mississauga.
The trio were identified early last night as Adrian Inglis BANNERMAN, 29, Aaron Brendan MacDONALD, 20, and Kurt Atiba CHARLES, 27.
All three victims are from Toronto, pushing the city's homicide tally so far this year to 35.
Detective-Sergeant Dean BURKS of the homicide squad said the slain men had been at a nightclub a few hours earlier and that the incident may be gang-related.
The bodies and the gold-coloured sport utility vehicle were discovered at around 3 a.m. and identifying the men was initially complicated by the fact that they had apparently been stripped of their identification.
But clues swiftly began arriving as Friends and relatives converged on the scene in the early-morning hours, including a distraught man who said one of the victims was his younger brother.
“I know who did this, they killed my little brother” the man screamed as he ducked under the yellow crime-scene tape and ran toward the Nissan before being detained by police and taken to the 22 Division station for questioning.
Det.-Sgt. BURKS said none of the victims was in the driver's seat of the car and that the bodies had likely been transported to the neighbourhood from elsewhere. Highway 427 and the Queen Elizabeth Way are both a short drive from where the car was found.
As well, bullet holes in the Nissan's chassis indicated that the shooting was done from outside the car.
“We have information that there was another person in the vehicle and we're making efforts to locate that individual, ” Det.-Sgt. BURKS said.
Police said no one in the neighbourhood heard any gunshots or saw the car arrive on Lunness Road. The first cruisers on the scene arrived in response to a telephone tip.
Torrential, on-off rain throughout the morning further hampered the investigation.
The 10-year-old Nissan appears to have been stolen or borrowed. A check on its licence plate showed it to be registered to an Ontario resident with the Ukrainian surname CHORNOMAZ.
Contacted Sunday by The Globe and Mail, an Etobicoke woman with that name said she did not wish to discuss the matter.
Leafy and normally peaceful, Lunness Boulevard backs on to Alderwood Memorial Park and is part of a residential community where crime is rare.
“It's a great neighbourhood, everybody is friendly, something like this has never happened here before, ” a male resident said.
Word of what had happened, however, seems to have spread quickly.
As the investigation got under way, the Nissan protected from the rain by a tarpaulin, a young woman drove up and told a Globe photographer and police that she knew one of the victims and that she is pregnant with his child.
A second young woman who arrived with a group of male Friends said she was from Brampton and that she too knew at least one of the deceased.
Then came the man who said one of the victims was his brother.
The triple homicide brought the number of killings in Toronto over the previous week to six.
On Monday, William Ross MAGILL, 64, was stabbed to death at his mid-town apartment.
On Thursday, 17-year-old Shazad KHAWAJA was shot to death in the east end.
And in another homicide this past weekend, Michael WATSON, 28, was shot at a strip mall on Scarborough's Rylander Boulevard early Saturday morning.
In addition, four other people were wounded during the past week in non-fatal shootings.
Despite the short-term surge in killings, the year's homicide total of 35 is still six lower than it was at the same time last year.

SIM, Gordon Edward Royal
(October 4, 1952-March 9, 2008)
Our dear friend Gord passed away peacefully, at home, during his Sunday afternoon nap after a long, courageous and dignified fight against cancer. He was triumphant in the face of inevitable defeat for he valued Friendship above all else, and the value of his Friendships was never more unassailable than at his life's end. Kind, loving, fun, surprising, honest, dedicated, dependable, all those wonderful qualities bundled into one great person. Predeceased by his father and mother, Clarence and Dorothy SIM and nephew Richard REID. He is survived by his sister Patricia REID (Don,) nephew Rod REID (Heather) and their children Parker and Brooklyn; Uncle and Aunt, Ted and Celia GRIGG, cousins Janine LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH (Peter), Kenneth GRIGG (Sue) and Catherine FREIVOKH and their families, and his godchildren: Morgan McCONVILLE, Scott TINDLE, Willie SCOTT, Peter SEHMER, and Taylor JACKSON. Gord had an incredible circle of Friends from every spectrum of his rich life, but in particular his family would like to thank his oldest Friends for their support and care in the last year: John and Mary McCONVILLE, Blake and Dorie POTTINGER, Maud KILLAM, Cathy NOEL, Margaret ROBINSON, Robyn WOODWARD, and Peter ARMSTRONG. The support and love Gord has had from his many Friends in the class of 1970 at St. George's, colleagues from his years in federal politics, and from Friends at Rocky Mountaineer Vacations has been much appreciated. We would also like to thank Doctor John Sehmer, and the physicians and staff of the British Columbia Cancer Agency. Gord's political career began with the Young Conservatives of Canada. He graduated from University of British Columbia - Class of 1974 and worked for many years for the Hon. John Fraser, P.C., O.C., OBC, Q.C. in Ottawa and Vancouver before joining the Rocky Mountaineer Vacations as a train manager for the last 14 years. Gord served on the boards of numerous community organizations and was a life long participant in the campaigns of many civic, provincial and federal candidates. Gord looked as great decked out in his kilt for the Sir John A. MacDonald Society as he did riding with Friends at Douglas Lake. A bit of a George Hamilton, our Gord liked to tan year round either in some exotic local or on the sunny shores of Savary and Gambier Islands. He enjoyed traveling, watching the Canucks, celebrating the achievements of loved ones, and cooking dinner for Friends. He has left us with amazing memories. 'How wonderful life is when you're in the world' surely was written for our Gord. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Gord's memory to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation. A service in memory of Gord will be held at Saint Mary's Anglican Church at 2490 W. 37th in Vancouver on March 25, 2008 at 3: 00 p.m.

FRENCH, Frances Mary (née LABINE)
(July 25, 1929-February 22, 2008)
Frannie slipped away peacefully into the early morning light on the shores of her beloved Georgian Bay. In death, in life and always, she was surrounded by her family and will forever be remembered by every soul she touched. Born in Haileybury, Ontario, to Gilbert and Blanche LABINE, Frannie was one of seven children. Cherished sister to Leonard, Joseph, Lillian (Maloney), Helen (Chisholm), Margie (Beaudry) and Patsy (Egan). Lorretto Abbey, the violin, the family farm, the Eaton's Fashion Council, a ship's sail across the Atlantic and a young hockey player all defined a young Frannie. At sea, returning from a pilgrimage to the Vatican she wrote of being embraced by her church and enthralled by her Paddie, with whom Frannie spent 57 years as a wife and mother to their five children: Michael (Colette), Paul, Paddy (Karen), Mary Fran (Brian Anderson) and Christopher (Cathy). She was an endearing grandmother to Britt, Emma, Claire, Andrew and Thomas. Frannie's married life began in Baie-Saint-Paul where Paddie, an engineer, built a dock in the St. Lawrence. From Quebec to Ontario, and in 1959 to Alberta, and the Rockies where he built the Rogers Pass, Frannie raised her family in Edmonton, skiing in the river valley, skating and golfing in Mayfair Park, and exploring the Rocky Mountains. Edmonton was good to Frannie. She reciprocated by devoting herself to the needs of others at Saint_John's Parish, Saint_Joseph's Basilica, the Catholic Women's League, and 36 fulfilling years as a volunteer with the Cross Cancer Institute. In 2000, Frannie and Paddie moved to Georgian Bay and a little house she had known as a girl. The nature she so loved surrounded her. Her brother, sisters and children always close by. Her failing memory protected by her husband who never lost faith or trust in her ability to love him. Always elegant in word and deed, Frannie loved and will be missed by many, especially the gentle souls she shared her final days with at Hillcrest Village in Midland. For the kindness to their mother, the French children are forever indebted. Arrangements entrusted to the Penetang Funeral Home 705-549-3155. The visitation and the funeral mass will be held at St. Florence Chapel, Thunder Beach. Visitation is Wednesday, March 5, 2: 00 to 5:00 p.m. The funeral mass is Thursday, March 6, 11: 00 a.m. followed by a reception at the church hall, Paroisse Ste-Croix, Lafontaine. Also on Thursday, March 6, a mass will be held in Frannie's memory at Saint_Joseph's Basilica in Edmonton. Interment will follow in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cross Cancer Institute, Edmonton, Alberta, or to the Catholic charity ShareLife.

PACE, Elizabeth Deans " Betty" (née WAUGH)
(July 6, 1921-April 20, 2008)
Peacefully slipped away after a valiant fight against Leukemia, on Sunday, April 20, 2008, at Victoria Hospital, London. Loving wife of the late Doctor W.E. PACE. R.N. Winnipeg Class of '45, Mother of 6, Genealogist, Abstract Artist and fascinating friend to many. Betty lived her 86 years of life on this earth to the fullest with spirit, fire and great style and will live forever in the hearts of her children, grandchildren and great-grand_son: Anne and Harry WALKER of Burlington with children Jennifer and husband Steven SMITH (and young son William,) Lindsay and David; Captain John and Sheilagh PACE of Richmond, British Columbia with children Jessica and Kaitlin; Doctor Ron and Ellen PACE of Waterloo with children Michael and Alison; Mary (PACE) and Roy FRENCH of Toronto with son Alex (PACE) and daughters Jennifer and Katie; Allan PACE and Lin WARD of Orangeville with son Taylor; and Carla Louise PACE of Vancouver. Cherished sister of the late Richard WAUGH and his wife Pat, cousin to Alex WAUGH and his partner Jerry DEE, and Pat (WAUGH) ETTER of Arizona, and much loved Aunt to her many WAUGH nieces and nephews. Born in Antwerp, Belgium, Betty moved with her family back to Winnipeg where her forefathers pioneered the Red River Settlement. It was there that Betty graduated as an R.N. and where she met and married the love of her life, Bill PACE. They settled in London, Ontario and enjoyed the summers in Muskoka, autumn canoe trips in Algonquin Park, and their beloved Lake Kawagama camp. Together they founded a family of nature-lovers, bird watchers, driftwood walkers, amateur biologists, paddlers and all with just a touch of Betty's unique perspective on the natural world. Throughout her life Betty steeped herself in the history and mystique of her pioneering past and, thanks to her love of genealogy, all of her children shared in the dramatic stories of their collective past through the WAUGH / MOWAT line. Betty was the consummate letter writer and her distinctive cursive handwriting on weekly letters will be missed by many. Always creative, a true turning point for Betty was attending H.B. Beal art classes and becoming part of a devoted group of art aficionados. The creative freedom of abstraction in watercolour, oils and acrylic was perfect for expressing her passionate spirit. She loved colour and her many works showed off her bold dramatic flair. She approached her art as she did her life, with great zest and energy, and right to the end rose to the challenge of one last small canvas with her signature theme, a graceful swan. Betty's passionate temperament fueled her vibrant art, her approach to gardening, baking and cooking, and also her fierce love and concern for her husband, family, Friends and neighbours. She had her own sense of style, whether in the kitchen, the garden or at a party, loved hats and fine shoes, and spread a lifetime of joy with her beautiful smile. Friends may call on Friday, April 25 from 7-9 p.m. at the James A. Harris Funeral Home, 220 Saint_James Street at Richmond, London, where the funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, April 26, at 2 p.m. As flowers of all types were a focus in her life and art, floral tributes are always appreciated by Betty and her family, or a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, 480 University Avenue, Suite 1502, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1V2.

FRENCH, James Patrick
(May 25, 1922-April 26, 2008)
Always a loving husband to Frances (née LABINE,) Pat passed away peacefully on the shores of Georgian Bay, surrounded by his family and the vivid memory of an accomplished life dedicated to his faith. He will be dearly missed by his children Michael (Colette), Paul, Paddy (Karen), Mary Fran (Brian) and Chris (Cathy). Beloved grandfather to Britt, Emma, Claire, Andrew and Thomas.
Born in Edmonton and raised in Ottawa, Pat is predeceased by his parents Martha BRENNAN and Doctor Felix FRENCH, his brothers Felix, Doctor John, Reverend Monsignor Francis and his sisters, Flora, Anna and Mary. Pat was schooled at St. Patrick's College and graduated in Civil Engineering from Clarkson in Potsdam, New York.
Pat served as a Captain in the Canadian Army and later as the Captain of Clarkson's hockey team. And while he considered opportunities in both the military and hockey, the opportunity of sharing his life with Frannie was a decision that took him to Alberta where together they raised a family.
Pat was a tireless advocate for the Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton and the Order of Grey Nuns; for the Alberta and Canadian Catholic Hospital Associations, and always a confidant of the families who quietly helped each other in the good times and bad that shaped his fifty years in Alberta.
As an engineer, Pat built the Rogers Pass. As a father, he taught his children to skate like the wind and as a husband, he and Frannie finished their work in Alberta and settled into the sanctuary of their church and their love for each other before Frannie's death in late February.
The visitation and funeral mass will be held at St. Florence Chapel, Thunder Beach, Ontario. Visitation is Wednesday, April 30, 2: 00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The funeral mass is Thursday, May 1 at 11: 00 a.m. Interment to follow later this spring at Renfrew, Ontario. Arrangements entrusted to the Penetanguishene Funeral Home 705-549-3155. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Caritas Hospitals Foundation (780) 482-8126, would be appreciated.
