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.

Three killed in drive-by shooting by Etobicoke gang, sources say
By Matthew TREVISAN with a report from Timothy APPLEBY, Page A10
Three men found shot to death in a bullet-ridden sport utility vehicle were ambushed by members of an Etobicoke gang in a drive-by shooting on a westbound Toronto highway before their stolen vehicle was found in a nearby neighbourhood Sunday morning, police sources said yesterday.
"The basic theory is that it was the 10th Street Gang who did this, and they're bad guys," said a police officer familiar with the investigation. "They put a gun up against one of our people last year."
Another police source strongly played down the suggestion that the slaughter entailed any kind of in-house cleaning. The victims were known to police, sources said, but were not members of the 10th Street Gang, a loosely affiliated group of street cocaine dealers.
The bodies of Adrian BANNERMAN, 29, Aaron MacDONALD, 20, and Kurt CHARLES, 27, were found in an abandoned Nissan Pathfinder just after 3: 40 a.m. Sunday on Lunness Road, near the intersection of Browns Line and Lake Shore Boulevard.
Police said the driver of the sport utility vehicle, unharmed in the attack, abandoned the vehicle moments before another person, whose identity police are still trying to determine, called 911. The driver, who was also known to police, contacted them yesterday evening and is not considered a suspect in the shooting.
"He was in fear of being next," the first police source said, referring to why the man abandoned the car.
At a news conference at police headquarters yesterday, Detective Sergeant Dean BURKS told reporters that the men had been at Fluid Lounge in the entertainment district before driving west out of the city. Also at the club were the people suspected of later firing at the men, police said, but they have not received any information to suggest there was an altercation.
J. Randall BARRS, counsel for the night club's owner, Moses SABATINO, said the club has working video cameras that cover its entrances and exits. The club had to install the cameras after its liquor licence was revoked for 30 days in 2006, after Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario violations that included marijuana smoking on the premises.
Det. Sgt. BURKS said a black or dark-coloured sport utility vehicle approached the men on the right and started shooting "multiple" times.
The driver of the victims directed police to the Browns Line off-ramp of the Gardiner Expressway at Evans Avenue as a possible location of the shooting, but police found no shell casings there.
"I would not be surprised if we found shell casings at another location," Det. Sgt. BURKS said. Police are in the process of checking Ministry of Transportation cameras on Highway 427 and the Queen Elizabeth Way for any sign of the shooting.
Police are also still trying to determine what led to the incident. "You have to appreciate, we're less than 48 hours into the investigation, so we haven't been able to establish a concrete motive at this point," Det. Sgt. BURKS said.
In 2005, members of the 10th Street Gang intimidated passersby and rival gangs from an outpost in the Lake Shore Boulevard and Islington Avenue area of the west end. But a Toronto police investigation that May disrupted the drug operation, nabbing 13 dealers, more than 400 grams of cocaine and $38,500 in cash.
"I haven't heard [the name] since, and I don't want to hear it again, to tell you the truth," said Mark GRIMES, City of Toronto representative for Ward 6 Etobicoke-Lakeshore. "It's not like they're a big force down here."

BELDAM, Murray
The family are saddened to report the passing of Murray BELDAM on June 6th, 2008, at the age of 98, after a valiant struggle with Alzheimer's disease. A quiet and unassuming man, Murray was born and raised in Scarborough Village. The adored and only child of Charlie and Edna BELDAM. He grew up in a close family setting, surrounded by loving aunts and uncles, at the corner of Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue in a large country home, surrounded by tall maples. Murray was an accomplished track and field athlete, holding a cigar box full of medals for high hurdles while attending the University of Toronto and the Ontario Agricultural College, from which he graduated as a bacteriologist in 1934. He was a third-generation Torontonian and a proud Canadian. Murray served his country as a Sergeant in the Medical Corps performing cold climate research from 1939 to 1945 and retired in 1970 from the Food and Drug Division of the Federal government. He and Billie, his loving wife of 65 years, enjoyed an active retirement, spending their winters in Florida and summers at their cottage in Muskoka. Murray and Billie enjoyed an exceptionally long life together, managing to live together in the family home up until a few weeks ago, when the Alzheimer's disease became a crushing burden to Billie and their wonderful nurse, Grace. How many couples manage to live together in their family home to their late 90's and are able to drive themselves for dinner together at local restaurants? Clearly, he had an enviable life. Murray is survived by Billie (Lillian HAYWOOD of Toronto,) his son David Blair, two grandchildren, Jo-Anne GRISTINA of Columbus, Georgia, and David Charles of Toronto, and three great-grandchildren, Lily, Annabelle and this spring, little Max GRISTINA, all of Columbus, Georgia. A funeral service will be held in the chapel of Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Thursday, June 12th at 3: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to UNICEF Canada, 2200 Yonge Street, Suite 1100, Toronto, Ontario M4S 2C6 or the Canadian Cancer Society, 1639 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario M4T 2W6.
