Doug MAHER: 87
Playmaker Scored Decisive 1948 Goal
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S8
Victoria -- Doug MAHER, a stay-at-home defenceman who scored a dramatic goal to win a championship for his Dallas hockey club in 1948, has died. He was 87.
Mr. MAHER played 10 seasons of minor-league hockey in the United States. A slight player, especially for a defenceman, at 5-foot-6, 148 pounds, he showed greater skill as a playmaker than a sniper. He never scored more than 10 goals in a season.
On April 16, 1948, Mr. MAHER was patrolling the blueline for the Houston Huskies in the final game of a tied series for the U.S. Hockey League title. With the score tied at 3-3, Mr. MAHER took a pass from teammate Ducky Skinner before shovelling the puck past the Minneapolis Millers goaltender. The series-winning goal was scored with just 28 seconds left in regulation time.
The marker gave Houston the Paul W. Loudon Trophy as league champions. Mr. MAHER's heroics also gave Toe Blake his first title as a coach, as the Montreal Canadiens great had taken over bench duties just weeks earlier after suffering a broken ankle as a player.
Mr. MAHER also skated for the Hershey Bears, the Seattle Ironmen, the Dallas Texans, the Fort Worth Rangers and the Philadelphia Falcons. He ended his career with the Hamilton Tigers, an Ontario senior-A team.
After retiring from hockey, he worked for 35 years at the steel producer Dofasco in Hamilton, Ontario
George Douglas MAHER was born on November 6, 1920, at Montreal. He died on June 25 at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital in Burlington, Ontario He leaves Anita, his wife of 63 years, a daughter, two grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and two sisters. He was predeceased by three brothers.

Risky intersection claims three Carleton Friends
Police trying to figure out what happened in crash that also injured two other students, one critically
By Gloria GALLOWAY with a report from staff at The Charlatan, the newspaper at Carleton University, Page A9
Ottawa -- Brianne DESCHAMPS and Vanessa CRAWFORD joked about how close they were by listing themselves as "married" on their Facebook profiles.
The two bubbly and intelligent girls from Southwestern Ontario had a lot in common.
They lived in small towns, went to the same country high school, and headed off to Carleton University in Ottawa to experience the heady freedom of undergraduate life.
The final chapter of their tight-knit relationship was written early yesterday when they died, along with their friend Mark MacDONALD, in a crash that left his sport utility vehicle a tangled hulk of dark metal.
"They were just great girls. They were just absolutely wonderful," said Denise SYER, who went to high school with the two 19-year-olds in Petrolia, east of Sarnia. Ms. SYER could barely speak through her tears as she grappled with the loss.
Mr. MacDONALD, 20, was also a Carleton student - someone who was remembered for his love of life and his athleticism.
Police say he was at the wheel when his Toyota 4-Runner was hit by a bus at about 1: 50 a.m. at an intersection of two main roads just south of the university, which is notorious for its high number of crashes.
The force of the impact took out a heavy, metal light standard. The bus was tossed into a snowbank.
All three young people were pronounced dead at the scene and two other students in the sport utility vehicle were also injured. Ben GARDINER, 25, was listed as being in critical but stable condition in hospital yesterday after undergoing leg surgery. A 19-year-old female student was treated in hospital and released.
Although it had snowed most of Tuesday, the flurries had substantially tapered off by the early hours of yesterday.
Police said yesterday afternoon that they were still trying to piece together what had happened, but they suspected alcohol might have been involved. The bus driver, who suffered minor injuries along with one of his passengers, told police that he had the green light.
Brier DODGE, a Carleton journalism student, grew up in Arnprior, west of Ottawa, with Mr. MacDONALD and remembered him as being a national-level swimmer, though he quit before enrolling at Carleton.
Ms. DODGE said that Mr. MacDONALD was the type of guy who loved to have fun.
"Looking back at him I think you can say that he really did live every day the way he really wanted to," she said. He and the two girls who died "all really loved life and to have fun. They were always inviting people over."
Lindsay SKEOCH, a second-year sociology student, said she was lost for words. "He was a really good friend and somebody I'll remember forever," she said of Mr. MacDONALD. "He was a hilarious guy. He was always up for fun - always wanted to go out and do things. He never was one to sit around."
Ms. DESCHAMPS was a music major who planned to teach music privately after graduation, her father, Stephen DESCHAMPS, said when reached at the family's home in Petrolia.
"She loved life, loved her Friends. I loved her giggle, her laugh, her beautiful, beautiful smile. Anything I'd do would make her laugh. She was very much a daddy's girl."
Ms. CRAWFORD hailed from Corunna.
Nicole BURK/BURKE, who worked part time with her at the local Tim Hortons while the two were in high school, described her as fun loving and someone who was an excellent singer. "She was in the Jazz Attack group at my school and she was really good."
Paul WIERSMA is the vice-principal at Lambton Central Collegiate Vocational Institute in Petrolia where both girls went to school. The students were told of the tragedy at the end of the day yesterday and a moment of silence was observed.
"They will be very much missed by our senior students and by our teachers," Mr. WIERSMA said. "They were full of life and they certainly were excited by going off to university. They had a lot of potential and a lot to offer."
At Carleton, flags were flying at half-mast yesterday.
Samy MAHMOUD, Carleton's interim president, described the news of the deaths as "devastating."

Ex-diplomat, son of former prime minister dies
By Jill MAHONEY, Page A7
Geoffrey PEARSON, a retired diplomat and the son of a former prime minister, has died.
Mr. PEARSON, who turned 80 in December, died in his sleep early yesterday, family friend Nancy GORDON said. She did not know the cause of his death.
"He was a great diplomat, he was very interested in Canadian foreign policy," Ms. GORDON said last night.
In many ways, Mr. PEARSON carried on the work and legacy of his father, former Liberal prime minister Lester PEARSON, she said. Geoffrey PEARSON was Canada's ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1980 to 1983. He was also a foreign service officer and a former executive director of the Canadian Institute for International Peace and Security.
Bob Rae, a long-time family friend, last saw Mr. PEARSON in December at a one-day conference Mr. Rae presided over to honour the 50th anniversary of Lester PEARSON's Nobel Peace Prize. He said his friend had been unwell.
"I'm obviously very saddened to learn of his passing. He was a very fine man, he was very committed to Canada's role as a peacemaker and peacekeeper in the world, was a great Canadian ambassador and had a very great sense of humour," he said.
Mr. PEARSON, who was retired, was a past president of the United Nations Association in Canada. Long after his retirement, he wrote about and commented on foreign affairs, including for The Globe and Mail and other media. A book he wrote about his father, Seize the Day: Lester B. Pearson and Crisis Diplomacy, was published in 1993.
Ms. GORDON, who worked for Mr. PEARSON at the Canadian Institute for International Peace and Security and has known him since the mid-1970s, spoke with his son about his passing. "They're shocked and sad," she said.
Mr. PEARSON leaves his wife, former senator Landon PEARSON. They have five children.

Police discover third body in charred home
By Jill MAHONEY, Page A11
Investigators discovered a third body yesterday in the charred ruins of a Don Mills townhouse believed to be the scene of a double murder-suicide.
Two bodies had been found previously, after a suspicious fire engulfed the home Saturday evening. The three bodies are thought to be those of a woman, her husband and her mother.
"That's what we anticipate, and that would make it a double homicide-suicide," said Toronto police homicide Detective Doug SANSOM.
Around the time of the blaze, a three-year-old boy, who police believe was orphaned by the fire, was found unharmed by a neighbour after the man received a mysterious knock on his door. The boy was carrying a confession note.
"The note would indicate that there's some foul play," Det. SANSOM said, adding it appeared to be in a man's handwriting.
The note referred to a tape recorder in a nearby car that had only the sounds of people singing in English, Urdu and Hungarian. Police suspect the person who tried to make the recording was unaware the tape recorder did not work.
The boy has been in the care of the Children's Aid Society, but police believe he will be released to a paternal aunt who lives outside Toronto.
The second body, found Sunday, and the third body had not been removed from the townhouse late yesterday afternoon because of concerns about the structure's safety.
Police had responded to past complaints of domestic violence at the address on Green Belt Drive; the last incident was about three years ago, Det. SANSOM said. As well, emergency responders reported a strong smell of gasoline at the fire, which occurred in the Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue area.
Police said the victims are believed to be a 41-year-old man and two women, aged 46 and 70. Police won't officially release the names until the badly burned bodies are identified, likely through dental records or DNA. However, they have been identified by local media as Magid AHMAD, his wife, Ildiko SZAVA, and her mother, Karolyne GALLASZ.

WITHERS, Eileen Anne (née TRAYNOR)
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Eileen WITHERS, after a short and courageous battle with lung cancer. On Friday, June 13th, she died peacefully with her husband and two children by her side in hospital in Halifax, age 61. A woman whose journey through life blended several families in many locations, including homes in Scotland, England, Gatineau in Quebec, Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto and finally retirement in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Daughter of proud parents Harry TRAYNOR and Katherine (née GILL) of Halifax. Beloved wife and best friend of Thomas (Ted) WITHERS. Cherished mother of Sarah (Keith BENNETT, Toronto) and Adam MAHONEY (Kendra HURSHMAN, Windsor.) Dear stepmother of Rob MAHONEY (Tracey SLITER, Ottawa), Paul WITHERS (Judy MYRDEN, Halifax) and Carolyn (Andy HEARD, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia). Precious sister of Ian (Ottawa) and Gordon (Halifax), she was predeceased by her sister Christine (Bryan UNSWORTH, York). Eileen will be sadly missed by her extended family and Friends in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and throughout Canada. Born in Greenock, Scotland, her family moved to England before she started school. An avid sportswoman and student, tennis and grass-hockey were balanced by studying mathematics and chemistry, eventually completing an honours degree in Economics at the University of London. In 1968, shortly after arriving in Canada, she realized that her French skills, learned in England, were not sufficient so she enrolled in a French ski school. That way, she could learn to ski and speak French at the same time. Her strong work ethic and commitment to efficiency helped propel her into senior policy roles in several federal government departments, and trade negotiator for International Trade Commission. Eileen was truly a remarkable and multifaceted woman whose interests included her pets, wine making and antiques. Always fond of puzzles and games, the complexity of duplicate bridge enchanted her. She was a Life Master, certified as both a director and teacher. She also judged competitive debating teams. A collector by nature she attended estate auctions most weekends. Travel often centred around a theme, first bridge tournaments, then 'collecting' state capital domes in the United States, and finally, viewing paintings by Vermeer in museums around the world. Her love of art was shared with Ted. In recent years, her generosity led her to volunteer with seniors at the Windsor Elms, especially in the Palliative Care Unit. An active member of her church, she was a Eucharistic Minister. Funeral mass and celebration of life were held in Windsor, Nova Scotia In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Animal Shelter. Private messages of condolence can be made in the 'Guest Book' at: www.familycare.ca She met each challenge in her path with grace and wisdom and it was the gift of herself that she gave to others.

Motorists' flash of anger ignites a fatal confrontation
By Sarah BOESVELD, Page A1
It was all over in a minute.
In a crash that police say was fuelled by a split-second fit of road rage, a man was killed yesterday when he was ejected from his black sport utility vehicle after a dramatic showdown with another driver in the eastbound lanes of a busy Ontario highway.
The early-morning crash caused five hours of traffic headaches for thousands of commuters heading eastbound on Highway 401 outside the town of Milton, just west of Toronto, and shined a spotlight on the dangers of driving while raging.
By late yesterday, police had arrested a man and charged him with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving and failure to remain and assist at the scene of a collision.
Reached last night, the mother of the arrested man said she knew police were looking for her son when she heard about the crash through the news media.
"Right away, I knew who it was. The time, the place, the colour of the car and the make of the car," she said. Her other son was also in the car. Both men were heading to work in Mississauga at the time of the crash.
"It's like a nightmare," their mother said. "I can't believe it, I can't believe it."
From eyewitness reports, police gave a detailed account of events leading up to the crash.
A 55-year-old man was heading to work from his Milton home. He was driving north on James Snow Parkway when, at 5: 16 a.m., a maroon Pontiac Grand Prix pulled up beside him.
While police don't know what precipitated it, they allege the two drivers began a duel of sorts, jockeying to be the first on the Highway 401 ramp ahead. They accelerated "at a high rate of speed" toward the on-ramp, said Staff Sergeant Dennis MAHONEY- BRUER of the Ontario Provincial Police Port Credit division.
The man driving the sport utility vehicle managed to surge ahead and merge into the centre lane, but the Pontiac driver wasn't conceding defeat: He accelerated and cut in front of the sport utility vehicle, then slammed on the brakes - a classic road-rage manoeuvre, police say.
To avoid rear-ending the Pontiac, the sport utility vehicle driver swerved to the left and lost control, smashing into the cement median and rolling at least three times, police said. The sport utility vehicle bounced about 300 metres until it landed upright. The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle; he landed about four metres away, police said.
The time was 5: 17 a.m.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not released his name at the request of the family. [He was later identified as Tony GRECO.]
Although police do not often write "road rage" into their collision reports, Kenford Nedd, a stress specialist based at the Western Medical Centre in Vancouver, said most crashes can be directly linked to stress. He also sees an increasing number of patients admitting to their road rage.
When a driver's blood boils after being cut off on the road, a muscle stimulation prompts the hypothalamus to secrete cortisol, a hormone offering a natural high, Doctor Nedd said.
"When the impulses go to the hypothalamus, you can get a sense of euphoria, a sense that you're not responsible, you can almost do anything, there's a lack of control," he said.
But regaining control can take "just nanoseconds," he added. It can be as easy as taking a deep breath. "We need to learn to respond to situations rather than to react like we're wind-up toys ready to be released when any twig falls."
In the Highway 401 case, Staff Sgt. MAHONEY- BRUER said old-fashioned common courtesy could have prevented the crash.
"It's hard to be angry at somebody that waves a hand and says sorry, but when you get two hotheads together, that really precipitates the problem," he said. He said the crash is also an example that the public isn't getting the message about the life-saving benefit of wearing a seatbelt.
Wayne WINSOR, 39, of Milton, turned himself in to the local collision reporting centre at 2: 40 p.m. yesterday. Ontario Provincial Police officers picked him up and brought him to their Port Credit detachment for questioning.
He is scheduled to appear in court this morning.

McKEON, Mary Elizabeth
Of Toronto, died peacefully on January 31, 2008, surrounded by love in her 84th year. Bette's presence in the lives of her family, her many Friends throughout the world, her colleagues in the teaching profession and her associates in the arts and music fields was cherished by everyone. Bette was the eldest child of the late James McKEON and Callista McKEON and is survived by her siblings Louis (Mary), James (Renate), the late Frederick (Natalie), Patricia, Jack (Rickie), Jill (the late Desmond) and Barry (Mary). She was the devoted aunt to 16 nieces and nephews and a true friend to her cousins, Peggy McKEON and Mary McKEON (Charles,) and to her devoted friend Jane MAHUT.
Bette was a graduate of Loretto Academy in Hamilton and in 1946 graduated from McMaster University in Honours English. She then took up a teaching career in High Schools in Toronto. She was a female 'Mr. Chips', in her love of English and her influence on her many students at High Schools in Toronto. This was recognized when the student body at Sir Sandford Fleming High School in Toronto, upon learning that she was switching to another High School for personal reasons, on their own, rented a billboard in mid Toronto with the inscription 'Happiness is Miss McKEON' on it.
She will be greatly missed by her family, and her multitude of Friends in her many clubs and activities, in Toronto and around the world. She was an ardent supporter of the Arts, especially the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Stratford and the Shaw, all of whom benefited from her support during her life and through bequests which she has made.
A visitation will be held on Monday, February 4, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 10: 30 a.m. at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles). This will be followed by a Funeral Mass at 11: 00 a.m. and reception afterwards at St. Luke's Roman Catholic Church (39 Green Lane, Thornhill). In lieu of flowers, donations in Bette's memory can be made to St. Luke's Church to support children's activities.
