Elder TSUBOUCHI dies in hospital after hit and run
By Carolyn ABRAHAM, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page A12
To his family members, Thomas TSUBOUCHI was a robust example of good health.
At 83, the father of former Ontario cabinet minister David TSUBOUCHI could often be found playing golf or tossing ten pins at the bowling alley. No one expected his life to end soon.
But at 8: 18 Friday morning, a vehicle barrelled through a marked crosswalk on Huntingwood Drive in Scarborough and struck Mr. TSUBOUCHI as he strolled to the corner store to buy a newspaper. The vehicle fled the scene and left Mr. TSUBOUCHI with massive internal injuries. He died at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Saturday afternoon.
"It's really too bad it had to end this way," Mr. TSUBOUCHI's nephew Brian TSUBOUCHI lamented yesterday. "He was an awesome man."
Mr. TSUBOUCHI's youngest brother, 67-year-old Eiji, expressed similar regret: "It's such a shame to be 83, and in such good health, and to go like that."
Eiji TSUBOUCHI, who lives in Thunder Bay, said his brother was born on Vancouver Island, the second of six children, and worked hard all his life to raise a good family.
As a Japanese Canadian, Thomas TSUBOUCHI was forced from his home during the Second World War and into a barbed-wire internment camp in Northern Ontario at age 20.
Brian TSUBOUCHI said he was always struck that his uncle "never seemed to hold his internment against anyone."
Eiji TSUBOUCHI said their mother used to say that she "was always thankful to be a Canadian" in spite of the internment, and that "it made us try even harder to make a better life."
After the war, Thomas TSUBOUCHI landed his first job, chopping wood in a bush camp near Thunder Bay. He later took a dry-cleaning apprenticeship course and moved to Toronto, where he married Eiji's kindergarten teacher.
Eiji TSUBOUCHI said his brother worked behind the counter at two dry-cleaning stores until he had saved enough money to open his own. Along the way, he said, Thomas and his wife -- who died several years ago -- raised three successful children: Danny, who earned his M.B.A. and a hockey scholarship at St. Louis University Lynn, an office manager; and lawyer David, a former Conservative member of provincial parliament and Ontario solicitor-general under Mike HARRIS.
Eiji TSUBOUCHI described his brother as a man of few words; a tough disciplinarian, but one with a very giving spirit.
"My son Brian went to a touch football match in Toronto once and when Thomas shook his hand, he slipped $50 in to it," Eiji TSUBOUCHI said. "He was a very generous man."
Toronto police are reviewing a surveillance video that may yield clues about the hit-and-run driver. Descriptions suggest the vehicle was medium-sized and silver, and police are asking anyone with further information to call the traffic services division at 416-808-1900.

Three killed in weekend gunplay
By Carolyn ABRAHAM, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page A12
Three men were shot dead on Toronto streets over the weekend in two separate, bloody and very public displays of gun power.
Some time around 6: 30 yesterday evening, two men were driving near the intersection of Finch Avenue and Martingrove Road in Etobicoke when two men on foot fired at them, police said.
Their silvery-coloured vehicle then veered through the intersection and crashed into the fence outside Elmbank Junior Middle Academy School.
"Both of the men were in the vehicle when they were shot," Toronto Sergeant Mike ROSINA said last night as officers worked in the cold drizzle, gathering grim measurements at the scene.
Inspector Mike EARL of 23 Division said the driver was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead. A passenger, whose body lay covered under an orange sheet on the sidewalk last night, died at the scene.
The suspects were seen fleeing eastbound on foot after the shooting, said Insp. EARL. As a result, police cordoned off the intersection at all four ends and began a methodical hunt in the area that involved forensics teams and at least one German Shepherd.
"Due to the amount of blood at the scene... we're also considering that there may be a third victim," he added. "We're just being cautious."
Police could not say last night if the double shooting had any connection to the fatal gunfire that erupted just 26 hours earlier in north Etobicoke -- an area that has borne the brunt of this summer's gun-related violence.
In that case, police received a 911 call at 4: 25 p.m. Saturday reporting gun shots fired at Finch and Albion Road. When police arrived they discovered 22-year-old Brandon Archibold STERLING lying on the street in front of a townhouse complex.
Mr. STERLING was pronounced dead at the hospital and an autopsy yesterday concluded he had died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Police are looking for information about a dark blue Dodge, or Chrysler, minivan that witnesses: described fleeing the scene immediately after that shooting.
Toronto has suffered a record number of fatal shootings this year, with this weekend's deaths bringing the total to 64 -- 42 of them gun slayings.
Shortly before shots rang out at Finch and Martingrove yesterday, women who lost children to gunfire held a rally in Toronto calling themselves UMOVE -- short for United Mothers Opposing Violence Everywhere.
Toronto police also reported yesterday that they had pulled the body of a white man in his mid-30s from the Humber River at about 4: 15 p.m. The cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

Rivka ABRAMSON
By Zelda ABRAMSON and Myka TUCKER- ABRAMSON, Friday, September 30, 2005, Page A24
Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Holocaust survivor. Born in Sept., 1913, in Klobuck, Poland. Died June 15 in Toronto of heart failure, aged 91.
Rivka had two distinct lives. The first one was a fairy tale that ended when the Second World War began. Her second life, after 1939, was one of deep struggle.
In 1939, Rivka had been married to Shmiel for a couple of years. They were happily living in Lodz, Poland, taking full advantage of its cultural offerings.
Then came the war. Rivka and Shmiel were imprisoned in the Lodz Jewish ghetto, but determined to return to her family in Klobuck, she escaped. Shmiel gave her pieces of gold to buy safety, if need be, and a promise that he would shortly follow. That was the last time she saw him.
In Klobuck, round-ups of Jewish families by the Nazis had already begun. Rivka and two of her sisters -- Salah and Batia -- managed to stay together. Over the next six years, they were moved from one camp to another, working in factories and fields, and eventually were put on the death march to the Bergen-Belsen camp.
When the war ended, though all three survived, only Rivka and Batia decided to emigrate to Palestine. Their boat was intercepted by the British military and they ended up in a detention camp in Cyprus. Once in Cyprus, many men pursued Rivka, but it was Chaim, a tailor from Lithuania, with whom she fell in love and married in January, 1948.
Rivka, Chaim and their two toddler daughters emigrated to Montreal in 1952. Chaim set up a tailor shop and Rivka would work long hours with him, running between the shop and their home.
Work defined Rivka. She never stopped. She could not stop. Her house was immaculate, with floors being washed three times a day. To stop working was to let grief and memories fill her spaces. She would enter into these dark spaces for weeks at a time, but always surfaced. Family was everything and the only thing for her. She did not trust anyone, and was always fearful of imminent tragedy.
Rivka struggled to adapt to normal life. Every day, a cigarette dangling from her mouth, she would tell her children about life and death in the camps. She could not understand her children's pickiness about food, or the pain of a sprained ankle or heart when she had lost so much.
Rivka never learned English. She had street savvy and created her own parallel Yiddish world in Montreal. When her eldest daughter Yona and her children moved to Toronto, Rivka, then 79, and Chaim followed.
She learned to use the transit, and once a week, with chocolate, candy and two $5 bills in hand, she picked up Zelda's two children at school and took care of them for the afternoon. Rivka and her grandchildren did not share a common language, but this did not matter. They knew and felt that her love was unconditional.
The time with Chaim in Toronto was difficult. His health was rapidly deteriorating because of dementia and Rivka increasingly had to take care of him. When Chaim died in 1999, she once again fell deep into her sadness, but this time, when she surfaced, part of her memory was lost. Aside from her children and grandchildren she remembered little of her life after 1939. There was a war. She did have children. The rest she forgot.
Shortly before Chaim died, he asked a favour of Zelda. He pointed to his wife Rivka. "She takes care of me every day; she is a good woman. I want you to buy her a present... a ring."
"What kind of ring?" Zelda asked him. He smiled and said, "A diamond ring."
Zelda and Myka are Rivka's daughter and granddaughter.
