ATS founder WOERNER dies at 65
By Simon AVERY, Technology Reporter, Tuesday, February 8, 2005 - Page B7
Klaus WOERNER, the founder, chief executive officer and president of ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc., has died of cancer at age 65, the company said.
Mr. WOERNER was one of the country's most successful immigrant entrepreneurs. He trained as a clock maker and tool maker in Germany before moving to Canada in 1960. Initially, he intended to work on the Avro Arrow. Then prime minister John DIEFENBAKER cancelled the fighter plane project before the 20-year-old could get his hands on it.
Instead, Mr. WOERNER took jobs in Montreal, while he worked to complete his Canadian high-school diploma and as he began evening engineering courses. After several years, he moved to Toronto.
He founded ATS in 1978 as a tool and die manufacturer, taking out a second mortgage on his home and investing $70,000. After the company landed several large contracts, Mr. WOERNER steered it into the then-nascent area of robotics. Today, ATS designs and produces automated manufacturing and test systems for big companies in the automotive, electronics, medical and consumer products industries. The Cambridge, Ontario, firm employs about 4,000 people and posted annual sales of $665-million in 2004.
Shares of ATA fell 27 cents to close at $12.15 yesterday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Missing boater found dead in Georgian Bay
Teen was wearing wetsuit, life vest
Search continues for two others
By Roberta AVERY, Special To The Star
Cabot head -- The body of one of three boaters missing since Friday evening was pulled from the waters of Georgian Bay late last evening.
The body identified as that of 15-year-old Adam MUSIALKAEWACZ of Hamilton was found about 9 kilometres northeast of Cape Croker, northeast of Wiarton on the Bruce Peninsula, and about 40 kilometres south of where they were last seen, said Ontario Provincial Police Constable Steve STARR.
"He was wearing a wetsuit and a life jacket when he was found," said STARR.
The discovery came after an extensive two-day air and water search by the Ontario Provincial Police, the Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Trenton, Parks Canada and private vessels that covered southern Georgian Bay as far south as Meaford. MUSIALKAEWACZ and his Friends Karol LASKOWSKI, 23, of Hamilton, and Rafal SIENKIEWICZ, 17, who is visiting from Poland, were last seen around 7 p.m. Friday just south of Cabot head in an open 15-foot sailboat. Some campers spotted the boat trying to head into the wind toward shore.
It's believed there was no VHF radio, cellphone or lights on board, said Maj. Gerry FAVRE of the rescue centre.
John TOZER, a sailor who lives in nearby Dyer's Bay, said there was quite "a blow" on Friday evening with winds from the north making conditions unsuitable for a small boat.
"There was no way they could have gone into that wind," said TOZER.
Environment Canada reports there was a small-craft wind warning on Georgian Bay Friday evening with winds gusting up to 50 km/h.
Kathleen BRADLEY and Guy LANGMAN, who are the lighthouse keepers at Cabot Head, were on the porch of their cottage adjacent to the lighthouse early Saturday morning when a distraught man arrived and asked if they had seen a sailboat.
"He was very upset," said BRADLEY.
The man, who identified himself as the father of one of the boaters, said he had discovered the car and trailer used to transport the boat on the beach about 2 kilometres from the lighthouse early that morning and had already searched the harbour at Lion's head
BRADLEY sent the man to search nearby Wingfield Basin where sailors often take shelter during rough weather. When there was no sign of the missing boat, LANGMAN suggested the man call the coast guard and gave him a phone and all the contact information.
The man called the coast guard and then explained he was staying at a remote cottage with no telephone so BRADLEY invited him to stay at the lighthouse and the man went to fetch his wife and their 5-year-old daughter
"They waited all day for news but there was none. It was upsetting to see them; we wished there was something we could do," said BRADLEY.
She invited them to return yesterday, but they didn't come back, she said.
There is no dock at Cabot head so the young boaters would have had to carry the boat over the stony beach to reach the water, said BRADLEY.
The Class 470 Spanish-made sailboat had flotation compartments and should be unsinkable unless the hull is damaged, said STARR.
Searchers had hoped that as all three were believed to be wearing wetsuits there was a chance they would have survived two nights in the 17°C water even if the boat had capsized, said STARR.
"As Adam was found wearing a wetsuit it doesn't bode well for the others. It's a very sad situation," said STARR.
The search for LASKOWSKI and SIENKIEWICZ is to resume this morning.

Girl, 4, drowns near Huntsville
Parents discover child early in morning
'We don't know what happened': Police
By Roberta AVERY, Special To The Star
Huntsville -- A family visit to the cottage turned into tragedy early yesterday morning when the body of a 4-year-old Burlington girl, Regan HARSHAW, was found in the waters of Skeleton Lake, about 25 kilometres southwest of Huntsville.
"The family is having a very tough time dealing with this terrible tragedy," said Const. Ted SMITH of the Ontario Provincial Police's Huntsville detachment.
Police released very few details yesterday, saying only that the child was found in the lake at the cottage by a parent before 7 a.m. Regan was rushed by ambulance to South Muskoka Memorial Hospital, where attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.
Although Hwy. 141 runs to the south of Skeleton Lake, much of the lake's 36-kilometre perimeter is not accessible by road. Many of the cottages, including the HARSHAW family's, are only reachable by boat.
Police were talking to Regan's parents last night to try to determine if the girl wandered from her bed in the night and fell into the lake.
"In reality, at this stage, we don't know what happened," said SMITH.
Foul play is not suspected, but can't be ruled out until after an autopsy scheduled for today in Toronto, he said.
"We're hoping there will be no surprises," said SMITH.
The girl's death follows the drownings of a number of other children in Ontario this year.
On July 24, the body of Terence THANHTAIK, 6, of Toronto was pulled from the mouth of the Nottawasaga River 24 hours after he disappeared from a family picnic at Wasaga Beach.
On June 12, two Toronto boys, Larry LE, 9, and his brother, Calvin, 7, died after a swimming accident near Guelph. A third brother, Anthony, 8, survived.
On July 2, Tyler REID, 6, drowned at a Goderich beach.

Lightning strike kills professor
Friend made frantic 10K run for help
Tragedy on Killarney wilderness trip
By Roberta AVERY, Special To The Star
Killlarney, Ontario -- A Concordia University professor was killed Tuesday evening when lightning struck the ground near his tent during a hiking trip to a remote lake in Killarney wilderness park with his son and a friend visiting from Russia.
After the lightning strike, the Russian, 19-year-old Anton SORTUNATOR, made a frantic 10-kilometre trek over rough terrain in a vain attempt to get help for Victor ROSSOKHATY, 48, of Montreal. The hike along La Cloche Silhouette Trail from Lake Topaz normally takes at least five hours to complete but SORTUNATOR made it to the park gate in just 90 minutes.
"It's very rough terrain, it's considered an advanced trail," said Cam HOEPP, assistant park warden at Killarney Provincial Park, which lies about 100 kilometres southwest of Sudbury.
Paramedics, who arrived by air ambulance a short time after SORTUNATOR raised the alarm, still had to hike about 600 metres into the bush up some craggy slopes to reach the remote campsite.
Since ROSSOKHATY had no vital signs, the paramedics, deciding it was too dangerous to try to carry his body out in the dark, stayed at the campsite overnight, said Const. Michelle COULOMBE of the Sudbury detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police.
Members of the Ontario Provincial Police's Emergency Response Team arrived in the early hours of the morning by boat, travelling down Baie Fine inlet and then hiking into the site.
ROSSOKHATY's body was carried out by emergency workers yesterday afternoon. That was about 21 hours after ROSSOKHATY, his son Alex, 19, and SORTUNATOR took shelter in the tent around 5 p.m. Tuesday during a violent thunderstorm.
SORTUNATOR and Alex ROSSOKHATY scrambled out of the tent after seeing lightning hit the ground nearby.
SORTUNATOR, apparently struck, felt a numbness travel down his limbs, said Const. COULOMBE.
"Then Alex realized that his father wasn't with them and when they went back into the tent to look for him, he was lying on the floor of the tent and wasn't moving," said COULOMBE.
"It appears that the lightning had travelled through the ground."
Alex immediately began cardiopulmonary resuscitation on his father, while SORTUNATOR, who is here on vacation, made the journey to get help.
ROSSOKHATY's wife is on vacation in the family's homeland of Ukraine, where ROSSOKHATY, an assistant and associate professor at Kyiv National University from 1990 until 2002, was recognized by Ukraine's National Academy of Science in 1990 for his research in graded semiconductors.
Nabil ESMAIL, Dean of Concordia's department of electrical and computer engineering, said ROSSOKHATY was "extremely excited" about joining the faculty in 2002 and learning about the culture of Canada.
"Getting a position with Concordia was like winning the jackpot for him," said ESMAIL, who described ROSSOKHATY as a "big strong man" who loved his new life in Canada.
Colleagues were devastated by news of his death.
"He was very well liked, people here are crying and are having a very difficult time taking it all in," said the university's Sebastian VOYER.
COULOMBE said police believe that ROSSOKHATY died from the lightning strike, but are waiting for an autopsy scheduled for today before making that the official cause of death.
According to the Ontario Weather Page, a website run by Fergus, Ontario, "storm chaser" Dave PATRICK, lightning kills about 16 people a year in Canada.
Tuesday's tragedy bore an eerie similarity to the August, 2003, death of Lee USHER, 41, of Toronto.
He was killed when lightning struck near a tent he was sharing with his two sons near Parry Sound.
