Stray bullet ended father's dreams of building a new life for his family
By Anthony REINHART with a report from Cassandra DRUDI, Page A1
In a neighbourhood nicknamed "airport" for all the Chinese newcomers it attracts, MAO Hou Chang had fast become a fixture on the sidewalks of Gerrard Street East, building his new life one orange at a time.
He could be found there most days, pointing customers to the best fruit in his bins in front of the Fu Yao Supermarket, a teeming hub for shoppers in Toronto's East Chinatown.
Thursday evening was no different, until just after dark. In the place where he made his modest living, Mr. MAO wound up dead in a blast of gunfire meant for someone else. A stray bullet hit him in the torso.
The death of 47-year-old Mr. MAO, the second killing of an innocent bystander in less than a week, sent a fresh wave of exasperation across Toronto, whose stone-faced mayor, David Miller, visited merchants before renewing his call for a federal handgun ban. It also echoed the Boxing Day, 2005, death of Jane CREBA, a 15-year-old caught in a shootout as thousands of shoppers clogged downtown Yonge Street.
Yesterday, as Mr. MAO's killer remained unknown and police made their presence felt on foot, in cruisers and on horseback, his community stumbled back to work amid a swirl of bitter winds and tough questions: Who did this? How could they? Why him?
"I think he had just come down in the front to take a look only" when the shots rang out, said William CHUI, who owns a bookshop near the grocery store. "He was shot down without any purpose."
The purpose of Mr. MAO's move to Canada two years ago was, by all accounts, a familiar one: to build a better life for his family. His 23-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter had joined him in Toronto, while his wife stayed behind in Fuzhou, a city of 2.6 million and capital of Fujian province on China's southeast coast.
His many customers knew him simply as "Mr. MAO," a quiet and likeable man with a helpful streak running through his hard work ethic.
"He's kind," said Trinh HUYNH, a neighbourhood resident for whom Mr. MAO would measure out lettuce into a plastic bag. "He's a very hard worker, even cold time he'd work outside," she said.
"We're all upset," said Mr. B. KONG, who owns a flower shop just east of the grocery and sent a bouquet to the store just before noon yesterday, when police gave it the go-ahead to reopen.
"It's never happened like this; this is a safe area," said Mr. KONG, who moved to Toronto from Hong Kong 15 years ago. "That kind of people, they come from another area," he said, referring to the gunmen.
Like many Toronto neighbourhoods, East Chinatown has evolved markedly in the 30 years since Mr. CHUI opened his bookstore, but not in a way that would explain Thursday's brazen gunfight, he said.
The Chinese population has shrunk to "two small clubs," mainly new arrivals to Canada and elderly immigrants who find city living convenient.
Gone, Mr. CHUI said, is the group in between, working families who have fled to suburban Markham, Richmond Hill, Scarborough and Newmarket.
As East Chinatown has shrunk, the residential streets around it have become increasingly gentrified as young professionals move in and start families.
At the same time, rough edges remain. Yesterday, in an alley behind the supermarket, three young people ducked into a parking garage to huddle around a lighter with pipes held to their mouths, and the notorious Don Jail looms at Gerrard Street and Broadview Avenue. Last October, a man who was arrested after Ms. CREBA's death was shot dead near the jail after visiting an inmate on a Sunday afternoon.
Whatever the outcome of Thursday's violence, Mr. MAO will be missed by those who had come to know him.
Dale CHEUNG, who as president of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce spent much of his day trying to calm the frayed nerves of merchants, spent time with him last week, and again on Thursday, just before he was killed.
In the first instance, Mr. CHEUNG enlisted Mr. MAO's help in hanging 40 red pennants from poles along Gerrard Street to mark Chinese New Year on February 7.
"Because he's tall guy, he was good for helping me hang the banners," Mr. CHEUNG said, using the present tense to describe his deceased friend, as the newly bereaved often do. "He said, 'Okay, no problem,' " and spent two hours doing the work for no charge."
As evening fell on Thursday, Mr. CHEUNG stopped off at the supermarket to buy some fruit.
"He chose some oranges for me," he said. "He told me the oranges are very good, very sweet."
With that, Mr. CHEUNG walked down Gerrard Street to his office. He didn't hear the shots.
"I didn't know until this morning," he said. "I'm not happy to hear this news."

CHURCH, Harold Peter
March 22, 1926 to March 27, 2008.
Peter's earthly journey came to an end five days after his 82nd birthday. Peter was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil, to Harold F.H. CHURCH and Hilda H. (née OWERS.) He was predeceased by his parents and brother Ian E.H.
Peter, a graduate of the New York School of Interior Design, dedicated his life to raising interior design standards. He was proud that the only interiors he hadn't worked on were those of a rail coach and a plane. Peter lived and worked in Brasil, England, New York, and Ontario before settling in Vancouver. His clients, tradespeople, and Friends all became intertwined to become an extended family.
Peter was a frequent traveler to many countries and enjoyed learning about different cultures and languages. He also had an appetite for food from all corners of the world. He was passionate about art, books, movies, music, and theatre. He held very strong views on a wide range of subjects -- and was never shy about sharing these views.
Peter's journey had recently become quite difficult as he bravely faced a series of illnesses. His courageous struggle was assisted by too many people to mention individually. Instead, we wish to thank the good people at Vancouver General Hospital (the Emergency Room, Medical Assessment Unit, Ward 11A (ACE), and Palliative services), the Pacific Spirit Community Health Centre (Home Hospice Program), and the British Columbia Ambulance Service for providing outstanding care in difficult circumstances.
Peter will be remembered at a memorial service to be held at Saint Mary's Kerrisdale, 2490 West 37th Avenue, Vancouver, at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 2. A Celebration of his life and work will immediately follow the memorial service. Please contact 604-267-6334 or email (CelebratePeter@shaw.ca) for additional information.
In lieu of flowers, people are asked to take a friend for lunch, in memory of Peter.
We have lost a true gentleman.

Facing fraud rap, United Way official commits suicide
Executive was confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, charity's president confirms
By Timothy APPLEBY and Elizabeth CHURCH, Page A10
A senior United Way of Greater Toronto executive committed suicide last month after being confronted with evidence she embezzled at least $600,000 from a previous employer, United Way president Frances LANKIN confirmed last night.
Janet DONIO, the local United Way's vice-president for informational services and operational change management, died while under investigation for her activities at the Council of Ontario Universities, a lobby group where she worked for six years as chief information officer.
As well, Ms. DONIO's chief academic credentials - a Canadian university degree and a PhD from the United States - were found to be bogus, Ms. LANKIN said.
The irregularities were uncovered by the Deloitte and Touche accounting firm and involved the payment of funds - said to be between $600,000 and $700,000 - for services never produced, and which instead were allegedly being siphoned off by Ms. DONIO.
The story began to emerge in March after the Council of Ontario Universities hired someone to fill Ms. DONIO's old position.
"We found pretty clear evidence of fraud," said chief executive officer Paul GENEST, stressing that no other individuals appear to have been involved. Nor were any improprieties uncovered in a second Deloitte and Touche audit at the United Way, which hired Ms. DONIO in February, 2007.
The Council of Ontario Universities gets some government funds, but most of its revenue derives from levies paid by the universities it represents and it will be seeking to recoup its losses from its insurer, Mr. GENEST said.
When Deloitte and Touche began unearthing irregularities, Toronto police fraud investigators were notified, but they were awaiting completion of the audit and apparently never interviewed Ms. DONIO, Ms. LANKIN said.
On the day the United Way was told of the allegation, - May 5 - Ms. LANKIN and chief operating officer Catherine SMITH met with Ms. DONIO, 56, and told her she was being placed on a paid leave while the investigation continued.
"It was a difficult conversation," Ms. LANKIN recounted.
She and Ms. SMITH then drove Ms. DONIO home to her west-end Toronto house, where she was found dead the next day.
A coroner's report said the cause of death was "undetermined," according to a family account relayed to Ms. LANKIN.
As for Ms. DONIO's phony academic credentials - a degree from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and a doctorate in cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - it appears that the Council of Ontario Universities did not check them.
Neither did the United Way, relying instead on character references from the council and another former employer, Ms. LANKIN said.
"Those credentials weren't critical to the job we hired her for, so we didn't check them."
The United Way of Greater Toronto was established in 1956 and supports a network of 200 health and social service agencies. Last year it raised a record $108.1-million.
Ms. DONIO's previous experience included a stint at TVO, as creative director of educational television, and at the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, where she was an assistant director.
A member of the Biinjitiwaabik Zaaging Anishinaabek Band, whose home is on the shores of Lake Nipigon in Northern Ontario, Ms. DONIO is survived by two adult sons, Jason and Robyn DONIO. Her former husband, Marcel DONIO, is a justice of the peace in Thunder Bay.
Financially, Ms. DONIO's affairs appeared unremarkable at the time of her death. In February, 2006, she purchased her house in west Toronto's Junction area, for $540,000, and in January of this year she remortgaged the property for just over $523,000.
"Jan DONIO was a respected and admired member of the United Way team," the United Way said in a statement. " We grieve her loss and the difficulty faced by her family."
