Heat victim couldn't afford air conditioning fee
By Canadian Press, Wed., August 8, 2007
Sarnia -- Neighbours say a mentally ill woman found dead in her sweltering apartment couldn't afford air conditioning.
Police cited excessively hot temperatures in Suzanne YOUNG's apartment as a possible factor in the 49-year-old's death. "It is possible that the heat contributed to her death," said coroner Dr. David EDEN.
He added there was no reason to suspect foul play.
YOUNG was found in her bed on the weekend by a neighbour who became concerned after not seeing her take her usual morning walk.
"We were all wondering where she went because the last day we saw her was Thursday," said Timothy DUQUETTE, who lives in the area.
Shanna MacDONALD, who adopted YOUNG's 15-year-old daughter as a child, said YOUNG was on medication for mental illness, including schizophrenia.
Friends said YOUNG was living on social assistance and cleaned up the parking lots at two local coffee and convenience stores for extra money.
Because of her fixed income, YOUNG could not afford the $50 monthly fee charged by her landlord to cover electricity costs of a window air conditioner, said her friend Jane McNEVAN.

ALLEY, Peter Herbert Ruttan (1930-2006)
Peter died on December 29, 2006 in Brampton after complications from surgery for a broken hip. Peter had slipped on his driveway as he headed out to ski for the day. He was deeply loved by Daphne (YOUNG,) his wife of 51 years. He is missed and remembered with love by his children: Hugh (Diana), John (Helen), Ted (Ann), Kate (Steve), by his seven grandchildren: Rebecca and Ted; Jessie and Will; Evelyn and Larissa; and Zoë, by his sisters: Aileen M.D. HOWES and Frances M. TIPPET and by his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Joan, and in 2004 by his son, Tom. Peter exemplified life-long learning and encouraged this in his family and in his teaching. His life demonstrated the values that he prized: respect, responsibility, and kindness. He influenced many who came into his life, providing thoughtful counsel with a caring approach. Peter began his career as a "boy-auditor", received his C.A., moved into industry and then taught for twenty years at York University in the MBA program. In the past six years he has inspired an initiative to document and protect an important and previously unrecognized landscape in Ontario at the boundary between the Canadian Shield and the Great Lakes Basin - now called The Land Between. Daphne and the children are grateful for the care provided by the staff at Peel Memorial Hospital and the support and assistance of Friends at Caledon who have helped so much in the last few days. There will be a celebration of Peter's life at Trinity College Chapel, 6 Hoskin Avenue, Toronto on Thursday, January 4, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to the charities that support his interest in the preservation of wild lands: The Land Between c/o Couchiching Conservancy, P.O. Box 704, Orillia, Ontario L3V 6K7; The Nature Conservancy of Canada; and the Bruce Trail Association.

She moved to Sturgeon Falls, Ontario where Percy practiced as a general practitioner physician until 1977, when they retired to Toronto. Mary spent her life helping others and was involved in many community activities. Mary's greatest undertaking was raising her three children. She supported them in every way and always kept communications open. In more recent years she was a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother. Mary had boundless energy and a great sense of humour that rubbed off positively on everyone around her. She loved nature and was the driving force in the family to purchase a boat, then land and a cottage on Lake Nipissing where the family still spends many of its happiest moments. This has kindled a deep love and appreciation of the out of doors in her children and grandchildren. Mary will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. She touched so many lives. She will always be in our hearts with great affection. A memorial service to celebrate Mary's life will be held at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W.

After almost eighty wonderful years, Betty passed away peacefully at home on August 20, 2007, surrounded by the loving support of her husband Andrew and children: Ian (Jaqueline,) Dawn LOUCKS (Barry,) Gail PETTINGER (Bill,) and Bruce (Patricia.) Betty, a woman of great beauty, empathy, spirit and quiet strength, was born in Montreal, Québec. in 1927; daughter of H. Maitland and M. Patricia YOUNG (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.) Predeceased by her brothers Ian and Brock, survived by sister Margot TAILOR/TAYLOR (Gary) and brother Ross (Alicia), Betty will also be greatly missed and cherished by all of her family, including twelve grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and by Friends throughout the world. Mum was a beautiful woman in many ways: a devoted wife, an incredible mother, always a good listener and considerate of others' needs. She encouraged her children always to look for the good in people and in life's situations. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren would be unanimous on the recent quote of one, 'G.G., you're the best brownie maker ever!' Having travelled the globe extensively with Andrew, she was always most at home in her coastal British Columbia environs, where she spent many pleasurable hours with family and Friends. No service by request. A gathering for close family to celebrate Betty's life will be held in Victoria near the date that would otherwise have seen Betty celebrating her sixtieth wedding anniversary with her beloved husband. The family offers thanks for the wonderful support, care and kindness of the Victoria Hospice Society and Beacon Community Services home care givers. No flowers by request.

His BamBoo club transformed the nightlife of restrained Toronto
Onetime freelance writer and his business partner took an abandoned laundry and turned it into the cornerstone of Toronto's funky Queen Street West scene through the 1980s and 1990s
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- Richard O'BRIEN was the arbiter of cool in a city that never stops obsessing over its image. Only he dared to pair plates of redolent Thai spicy noodles and feverish jerk chicken, washed down with a Tusker lager or two, with the throbbing beat of a Zairean soukous band.
Maybe he was crazy like a fox, for the marriage between exotic world music and Asian/Caribbean cuisine kept Toronto's landmark BamBoo club pulsating for nearly 20 years. As The Globe noted five years ago this month, when the BamBoo finally shuttered its fabled doors, "long before the Gap and Starbucks sent Queen Street West spiralling into a retail frenzy, stopping in at the BamBoo for a beer or a bite was a rite of passage for city residents and out-of-towners alike."
Indeed, the decidedly unslick 'Boo (once described, though lovingly, as "a carefully crappy-looking dive") was the cornerstone of Toronto's funky Queen Street West scene through the 1980s and 1990s, showcasing cutting-edge reggae, funk, R&B, Latin, jazz and soul acts, and hosting some of the wildest private parties staid Toronto had seen. The eclectic kitchen staff, meantime, cranked out signature Caribbean, Indonesian and Thai dishes that kept the joint at the top of virtually every "best-place-to-eat" list in the city since the day it opened.
The music was loud, the place usually packed (and sweltering), the food piquant and the atmosphere laid-back and aggressively Third World. It worked.
In the days before random club shootings and refrigerator-sized bouncers, the BamBoo was more a community centre for artists and musicians. "And it was an awesome community," recalled Lorraine SEGATO, lead singer for the long-defunct Parachute Club, which played the BamBoo in July, 1983, to celebrate their debut release, a month before the club officially opened.
(As Patti HABIB, Mr. O'BRIEN's friend and business partner for some 30 years, recalled with some satisfaction, the place that night "was jammed to the rafters, and it was totally illegal. We had no liquor license and no running water. You'd never get away with that kind of stuff today.")
What fascinated Ms. SEGATO about the BamBoo was its timing. Toronto "was just starting to bust out in terms of a cultural product that was coming from all the immigrants. So the music scene was really ripe."
"The timing was really extraordinary," she said wistfully. "It was a confluence of energies. More importantly, it was home to so many people who considered themselves either artists or, you know, different. The 'Boo was this safe haven."
That's precisely how Mr. O'BRIEN and Ms. HABIB planned it.
"Richard never turned down artists or musicians," Ms. HABIB said. "People felt the BamBoo was their home because it was a very relaxed atmosphere. No women ever had to feel scared. We never had fights. It was a very warm place."
A bearish man who bore a striking resemblance to film director Francis Ford Coppola and favoured retro Hawaiian shirts, Mr. O'BRIEN could be sarcastic and cantankerous (his favourite expressions were, "Is everybody mental around here?" and "What's the big deal?"). He was also gregarious and passionate, an unabashed party animal and a lover of the arts. Even as a child, he showed interest in art and theatre, said his 97-year-old mother, Catherine O'BRIEN.
Adopted when he was four years old, he was a product of Toronto's Catholic schools. At 17, he and a buddy hopped on a motorcycle to see a girl in North Carolina. Mr. O'BRIEN kept going, and wound up in California in 1965. He bummed around, studied writing and broadcast journalism, and played drums in a small jazz club in San Francisco, where such giants as Miles Davis and McCoy Tyner dropped in to record. Four years after leaving, he returned to Toronto, sold some drawings and freelanced articles to newspapers.
He went to work for TVOntario, then the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, where he got to interview reggae icons Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.
In the late 1970s, Mr. O'BRIEN started hosting a popular Toronto booze can, the Dream Factory (where his friend Marcus O'Hara launched the annual Martian Awareness Ball to coincide with St. Patrick's Day. Little green men - get it?)
With Ms. HABIB, he also ran one the city's hippest speakeasies, the legendary MBC. A lot of people joked that it meant "My Booze Can," but the name was a playful dig at the inability of Mr. O'BRIEN and some Friends to buy the nearby Embassy Tavern. MBC, open only on Mondays and Thursdays, was a hit, featuring live music until 6 a.m. with acts that included Rough Trade with Carole Pope.
"We didn't just start a club with no background," Mr. HABIB pointed out. "We had been doing different events around the city and compiling a mailing list."
The two also frequented a rooftop after-hours boîte called the Paper Door, where Bruce Cockburn and Murray McLaughlin were regular acts. Significantly, it looked down onto a dumpy building that had had housed a Chinese laundry for 80 years but was used to store wicker furniture.
"It was the most derelict place," Ms. HABIB recalls with a laugh. "It was condemned, had no running water, no heat and no floor to speak of. But we said, 'Wouldn't it be a fabulous place to throw a party?' "
To their surprise, the space was for rent, and in 1982, "Richard, not me, put a [$2,500] deposit down on six-months' rent, thinking he could build a club." The couple had three months to renovate about 1,500 square metres of space.
Investors were brought in but money was short. The couple set up a flea market of Christmas trees in an event dubbed "Tree and Flea." Banks turned them down for loans, so another group of investors came in with the funds needed to finish the job, but charged a mob-like interest rate of 100 per cent over two years (successfully paid).
Meantime, nothing in the club was new. The lime-green wrought-iron front gates came from a wrecking company, and the banquette seating was from the Drake Hotel. Toilets were bought for $50 from a pinball parlour that was going under. The bar was salvaged from an Irish social club in Buffalo.
After $85,000 in renovations, the place opened on August 26, 1983, and was christened the BamBoo as a tribute to its former incarnation. There were lineups almost right away.
"It was always full," recalled Fergus Hambleton, lead singer for Toronto's poster band for reggae, the Sattalites, who became regulars. "It was partially that we're fabulous," Mr. Hambleton said half-jokingly, "but other than that, it was also a time when that club was right and the whole Queen Street thing was developing."
In Toronto, the 'Boo was to the eighties music scene what the El Mocambo was in the seventies or the Riverboat in the sixties. On any given night, one could hear a Nigerian-style juju group, a West African highlife act, ska, or a soca (soul calypso) band. Sometimes, jazz greats Buddy Rich and DIzzy Gillespie would follow reggae giants Bunny Wailer and Toots and the Maytalls.
The club couldn't have a liquor license unless it served food, so veteran chefs Vera KHAN handled the Caribbean fare, while Wandee YOUNG did the Thai cooking. Both put their stamp on a 1997 cookbook, The BamBoo Cooks. And rumour had it that rocker David Bowie simply had to have the BamBoo's ka kai soup whenever he was in town.
It all made Mr. O'BRIEN, in the eyes of Ms. HABIB, "really, really brave. When you're in his circle of people, 'no' doesn't come into your repertoire. I had to be dragged into this circle of the BamBoo, but when Richard was around, the possibilities were endless. He'd think big, act big, and I think that takes a fairly brave person."
Mr. Hambleton had a similar take. "Everybody at some point had a screaming argument with Richard because he just had a big personality. He brought an artistic flair to everything he did. He had a prodigious knowledge of all cultural things. He blustered. But at the bottom was this creative personality that was driven to share."
In 2000, Mr. O'BRIEN suffered a debilitating stroke that caused paralysis on his left side and put him in a wheelchair. The end of the BamBoo came in the summer of 2002, when the building's landlord announced he'd rented the space to another tenant, and gave the club 90 days to vacate. There was a final farewell bash, "Boo Hoo" on October 31 that year. Mr. O'BRIEN wasn't all that upset. "He thought it was a good sign to get out of Queen Street," Ms. HABIB said.
Besides, she'd been thinking of selling the place. "It was just too much running a club at night, especially by myself."
Months later, Mr. O'BRIEN became restless, and in March, 2003, he and some partners unveiled Bambu By The Lake, an even larger club/restaurant on Toronto's waterfront. "I really loved the old BamBoo," he explained in an interview, "but this really makes me forget it quick. We took the best of the old parts of the old BamBoo and incorporated them."
His involvement in the new venture lasted six months. According to Ms. HABIB, he lost everything, save for his Toronto Islands house, which he'd mortgaged to the hilt.
His final contribution to the city was an attempt to beautify the islands' grim concrete ferry terminal. He re-learned to use a computer well enough to Photoshop his colour-splashed ideas into the landscape, and called it Terminal Art.
Mr. O'BRIEN suffered a second massive stroke earlier this month. His last words were, "What's the big deal?"
Richard Kevin O'BRIEN was born in Montreal on July 28, 1948, and died in Toronto on October 14, 2007, of neurological complications. He was 59. He is survived by his mother, Catherine O'BRIEN, and sisters Colleen and Marylou. He also leaves his godson, Alexander HABIB. He was predeceased by his father, Joe O'BRIEN and his brother Gregory.

York officer dies attempting arrest
Const. Rob PLUNKETT, 43, was dragged by a car, pinned to a tree, then thrown from the vehicle.
By Steve RENNIE, Canadian Press, Fri., August 3, 2007
Markham -- A pre-dawn police probe into air bag thefts turned tragic yesterday when a veteran York Region officer died after being dragged by a car, pinned to a tree and then thrown from the vehicle while attempting an arrest, police said.
Const. Rob PLUNKETT, hailed as "true hero" by his police chief, was the force's first officer to die in the line of duty since 1984 and only the third in the department's history.
A 19-year-old man faces a manslaughter charge in the death of the 43-year-old Markham married father of three and police said additional charges are pending.
PLUNKETT's death came as a heavy blow to a force not accustomed to loss, said Deputy Chief Bruce HERRIDGE.
"It's an organization where we've not lost many officers, but even one is one too many," said HERRIDGE, adding that PLUNKETT was well-known within the force.
The tragic confluence of events that sent PLUNKETT to hospital with fatal injuries were outlined yesterday by York police Chief Armand LA BARGE.
During a joint investigation between 5 District criminal investigation bureau and the York police special services unit into airbag thefts, police surveillance officers spotted two Hondas -- one white and one gold -- leaving a Toronto address.
Police said there have been a rash of airbag thefts since last September and 43 thefts since January of this year. Stolen airbags can net between $1,500 and $2,000, LA BARGE said.
Officers believed at the time the gold Honda was stolen, LA BARGE said. He confirmed at the afternoon news conference the car was indeed reported stolen.
The two Hondas were driven to a crescent in Markham, just north of Toronto, where plainclothes officers saw the drivers park their cars. The driver of the gold Honda opened his door and police allege he took out a stolen air bag.
Just after 5 a.m., PLUNKETT moved toward the open driver's side door of the gold Honda intending to make an arrest, said LA BARGE.
"As Const. PLUNKETT attempted to arrest the suspect, the suspect put the vehicle into reverse and accelerated over a curb, across a lawn and over several shrubs," he said.
PLUNKETT was then pinned between the open door and a tree as the suspect kept trying to drive away, LA BARGE said. The officer was then dragged onto a nearby lawn and thrown from the car.
"The suspect continued to reverse across the lawn at which time assisting officers rammed the vehicle to stop its progress," said LA BARGE.
A local resident, who didn't want to be named, said he heard two loud bangs outside his window and looked out to see a man lying on a lawn across the street.
The neighbour said he heard cries of, "He's bleeding, he's bleeding," shortly before an ambulance arrived.
PLUNKETT was taken to a hospital in east Toronto, where he died of his injuries.
Nadeem JIWAH, 19, has been charged with manslaughter and police say more charges are pending.
A second suspect, 23-year-old Baseer YOUSAFZAI, was also arrested and is facing charges of theft, mischief and bail violation.

'True hero' killed in the line of duty
Two men face charges after 22-year veteran is slammed into a tree while attempting to arrest suspected airbag thief
By Timothy APPLEBY and Geoff NIXON with a report by Alan CAIRNS, special to The Globe and Mail, Page A1
Markham, Ontario -- An undercover York Regional Police officer, dragged to his death yesterday by an alleged car thief on a sleepy residential street, is "a true hero" who paid the ultimate price for his "selfless sacrifice," Police Chief Armand LA BARGE said.
A charge of manslaughter has been laid against a 19-year-old Toronto man, with further charges pending. A second suspect in custody also faces an array of criminal charges.
Constable Robert PLUNKETT was a 22-year veteran of York Regional Police and 43-year-old father of three. He died after an abortive 5 a.m. operation when he approached the driver's side of a car to arrest a man suspected of trying to steal airbags - a profitable mini-industry in the auto-theft world.
The suspect threw the Honda into reverse and Constable PLUNKETT was trapped by the open driver's-side door. The vehicle drove over a curb, across a lawn and slammed into a tree, fatally injuring the officer, Chief LA BARGE said.
Backup police then rammed the vehicle and arrested the driver as he attempted to escape. The other suspect, nearby in a second car, was also quickly apprehended.
Rushed to Scarborough Grace Hospital, Constable PLUNKETT died soon afterward - the first York Regional Police officer killed in the line of duty in more than 20 years.
The slain officer once won a bravery reward for rescuing an elderly woman from a frozen lake and was renowned for his work on behalf of the Special Olympics, a forum for disabled athletes.
"Rob and police officers like him are true pillars of the community that we serve, and their selfless sacrifice and their hard work ensures that the communities that we call home are safe places in which to live and to raise a family," Chief LA BARGE said.
Asked if Constable PLUNKETT's approach of the suspect was in line with normal procedure, Chief LA BARGE replied, "Surveillance officers, when they undertake these types of details, formulate a plan as to how they would effect the arrests where arrests need to be made."
As upwards of 30 officers descended on the crime scene early yesterday, residents of Ascot Crescent described the chaos.
Startled awake by the ruckus, one resident described seeing Constable PLUNKETT lying on the street.
"I heard a very loud noise and somebody yelling," said a woman who asked that her name not be published. "He was lying on the ground and they were trying to get him to breathe."
She said she took a blanket outside to an emergency worker in hopes that it would be passed on to Constable PLUNKETT, but it was too dark for her to tell if it was eventually placed upon him.
A few doors away, at a home directly across the street from where he was killed, another homeowner recounted hearing officers yelling, "Breathing! Breathing!"
Police had followed two cars - both Hondas - from an address in Toronto to Ascot Crescent, in the Birchmount Road and Steeles Avenue area. At least one of the vehicles was stolen and police believe it had been taken to a quiet location to remove its airbag.
The driver was trying to do just that when Constable PLUNKETT moved in for the arrest, Chief LA BARGE said.
The death is the first killing of a police officer in York Region since 1984, when two officers died in the line of duty within weeks, and sent shock waves across the force, formed in 1971 and now serving more than 900,000 people.
"It's an organization where we've not lost many officers, but even one is one too many," Deputy Chief Bruce HERRIDGE said.
The theft of airbags and other auto accessories is a long-established business, said Detective Staff Sergeant Scott MILLS, who heads the Ontario Provincial Police auto-theft unit.
"There is a very large grey market for replacement auto components, airbags being one, along with Global Position System, stereos, body components - things that can easily be put into high-end vehicles," he said.
"Body shops buy them. There's a very low profit margin in auto body repair, so if the owner can buy, say, airbags for a Cadillac Escalade for $100 on the grey market, then he doesn't have to go to General Motors and buy them for $400."
As for the thieves, police say they range from drug-hungry addicts needing a fix, to slick, well-organized criminal gangs.
"And some shops buy them up like candy," another police source said.
In this instance, detectives believe the suspects specialized in the theft of airbags, which also get shipped abroad to developing countries.
Chief LA BARGE suggested Constable PLUNKETT had no choice but to act as he did.
"Surveillance officers work in a team environment, but the situations that they encounter can happen so quickly that there is absolutely no alternative but for the surveillance officers to make those arrests," he said.
"And this is the particular situation that we are dealing with here."
Chief LA BARGE indicated that 43 airbags had been stolen in Markham since January of this year - most from Honda and Acura model vehicles - and that this particular investigation had been under way for two or three weeks.
Nadeem JIWA, 19, has been charged with manslaughter, which usually describes an act of unintentional homicide. Baseer YOUSAFZAI, 23, faces charges of breach of bail and possession of stolen property.
Both men are from Toronto and likely face additional charges, police said.

Officer remembered as friend, athlete
'Affable manner and his Huron County charm made him a very easy person to get to know,' Chief says
By Sean Patrick SULLIVAN, Canadian Press, Page A10
Newmarket -- Thousands of police officers from across Canada paid tribute yesterday to slain Detective Constable Robert PLUNKETT, who was remembered at his funeral service as a dedicated family man with a personal motto of: "Go big or go home."
Det. Constable PLUNKETT, 43, a 22-year veteran of York Regional Police, was killed last week when he was struck by a car while attempting to make an arrest.
Officers in dress uniform were marshalled on a grass-covered slope before marching into the complex in this city north of Toronto, followed by a solemn stream of mourners.
The complex's 3,500 seats were filled, as was an overflow room. Some 1,500 other mourners - many of them uniformed police officers - listened to the ceremony from the parking lot in 30-degree temperatures.
York Regional Police Chief Armand LA BARGE praised Det. Constable PLUNKETT's athleticism and superb physical conditioning, which he said set the officer apart from others in his rookie year.
"Rob's affable manner and his Huron County charm made him a very easy person to get to know, and as a member of our police service, Rob distinguished himself as a very determined and a very gifted athlete," Chief LA BARGE said.
York Inspector Tom CARRIQUE said Det. Constable PLUNKETT's colleagues valued his ability to bring levity to a situation with a practical joke, often at the expense of an unsuspecting supervisor.
He recalled how "Plunk" and a few accomplices were once caught carrying a colleague's Austin Mini Cooper across a parking lot on their way to hiding it in a corn field.
Glenn MacDONNELL, president of Special Olympics Ontario, said Det. Constable PLUNKETT's love of sport - and his belief that policing is more than just law and order - prompted the enthusiastic officer to throw himself into organizing events for the group, including acting as chair for the Special Olympic Spring Games in 2000.
Det. Constable PLUNKETT received a number of accolades throughout his career, including one in February, 1998, when he was recognized for bravery in assisting in rescuing an elderly woman from the freezing waters of Swan Lake in nearby Markham.
He is survived by his wife Sonja and three children, Amanda, Matthew and Jeffrey.
The funeral comes one day after a charge against a suspect in Det. Constable PLUNKETT's death, Nadeem JIWA, 19, was upgraded from manslaughter to first-degree murder. Baseer YOUSAFZAI, 23, faces at least four lesser charges. Both suspects appeared in a Newmarket courtroom yesterday and will return to court later this month.
