Robert FREEDOM, Surgeon 1941-2005
The director of cardiology at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children was a widely respected surgeon who wrote hefty textbooks and played a key role in the royal commission that investigated the mystery deaths of 36 baby patients
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, May 19, 2005, Page S11
Halifax -- Known by his peers as "Mr. Pediatric Cardiology," Robert FREEDOM was widely respected for his clinical skills and for his training of cardiologists from around the world, and as a prolific author of clinical research and textbooks, several of which are considered classics in the field. Less happily, he figured large in a sensational 1981 murder probe and a subsequent royal commission that investigated the deaths of more than 30 babies at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children
It wasn't uncommon to find the head of cardiology at Sick Kids hunched over his desk in the early morning hours writing. Over his career, Dr. FREEDOM wrote more than 400 medical papers, 125 book chapters, and eight textbooks, including the formidably large Atlas of Congenital Heart Disease and the Natural and Modified History of Congenital Heart Disease. Published in 2003, it was the last of his textbooks.
Robert Mark FREEDOM was a native of Maryland, where he and his twin brother, Gary, experienced a disruptive childhood. Shortly after they were born, their parents divorced and they had virtually no contact with their father, a neurologist and an eighth-generation physician. When they were still young, they moved to Southern California and were soon placed together in boarding schools and residential homes. The brothers remained close throughout their lives.
Robert studied medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles; Gary went on to earn a PhD in geography. Initially focused on neurosurgery, Dr. FREEDOM soon found a new interest. At medical school, he was asked to perform four autopsies on babies or children with congenital cardiac disease; from that experience, he decided to pursue a new path in medicine.
After finishing medical school, he was accepted for an internship and residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital Boston. While there, he also studied pediatric cardiology. In 1972, he was recruited by Richard ROWE, then director of pediatric cardiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, to become the director of the diagnostic cardiac catheterization laboratory and assistant professor of pediatrics. When Dr. ROWE, who had become his mentor, was recruited to take over as director of cardiology at the Hospital for Sick Children in 1973, he asked Dr. FREEDOM to join him in Toronto.
Dr. FREEDOM moved to Canada in the summer of 1974 and spent the rest of his career there, dedicating himself to the hospital and the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto. But the next decade did not unfold so smoothly, and there were times when he must have questioned his choice of careers, or at least hospitals.
On March 25, 1981, police accused Sick Kids nurse Susan NELLES of murdering baby Justin COOK. Two days later, she was charged with murdering three other infants. More than a year later, in May of 1982, Ms. NELLES was discharged at a preliminary hearing. A royal commission headed by Mr. Justice Samuel GRANGE of the Supreme Court of Ontario then examined the circumstances surrounding Ms. NELLES's arrest and prosecution.
The commission also tried to reconstruct events at the hospital from June 30, 1980, to March 22, 1981, to determine whether the babies died of heart defects or were murdered by overdoses of the heart drug digoxin. All told, the commission investigated 36 deaths.
In September of 1983, Dr. FREEDOM testified before the commission that he had told several of his relatives that "someone is killing our babies" after he learned that large amounts of digoxin had been found in a baby who died in March of 1981. Days later, he repeated the comment to Metro Toronto Police Staff-Sergeant Anthony WARR. He said he was convinced that something malevolent had transpired at the hospital after three babies died with high levels of the heart drug in their bodies.
"I believe I made the comment to my wife or my brother-in-law and his wife late on the Saturday night [March 21] after I heard of the digoxin readings on [infant] Allana MILLER," Dr. FREEDOM said. "The digoxin levels in the baby had been low [in the afternoon] and then they were sky-high. I thought something malicious was going on."
Dr. FREEDOM testified that when he learned of the high readings on the night of March 21, he thought, "My God, how can she go from a very low level to a very high level?... I wonder if it's murder?"
The commission also heard that he was so alarmed about the deaths that he told another doctor during a catherization on Justin COOK: "If this baby dies, we have a murderer on our hands."
Judge GRANGER later heard that Dr. FREEDOM had provided a vital link in the murder investigation when he told a homicide detective that problems with an intravenous line could have resulted in a digoxin overdose slowly infusing into the baby's body over several hours, making it possible for Ms. NELLES to have given the drug to the infant before she went off duty on the evening before the infant died.
At the preliminary hearing, Ms. NELLES was cleared of all charges after the judge found insufficient evidence to send the case to trial.
In 1986, Dr. FREEDOM succeeded his mentor as director of cardiology at Sick Kids, a post he held until the fall of 2000, when he stepped down because of failing health.
"We're one of the largest and best-known divisions of pediatric cardiology in the world," said Lee BENSON, a long-time colleague.
A big burly man, Dr. FREEDOM demanded high standards not only from himself but from everyone around him, and he could be intimidating. During his teaching rounds, medical students were known to tremble with fright. But, as a professor, he won his fair share of awards. He also helped in developing a three-year, sub-specialty training program in pediatric cardiology at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Dr. FREEDOM was known among colleagues for his encyclopedic memory. If another doctor so much as mentioned a study in an obscure publication, he was able to recall not only details but authors and publication date, said his friend and colleague Shi-Joon YOO.
His patients loved him. "The parents worshipped the ground he walked on," said Dr. BENSON, adding that years later he remembered their names. Obsessive about his work, he spent all hours of the day and night in the hospital. "He lived at Sick Kids," said his wife, Penny, whom he met in the late 1980s after a couple of failed marriages.
Despite suffering from diabetes, Dr. FREEDOM didn't take care of his own health. He enjoyed Scotch, smoking cigars and eating whatever he desired. "Bob did things his way," Dr. BENSON said.
Not one to usually take vacations, he changed his mind after a trip to Granville Ferry in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. Located on the Annapolis River, he fell in love with the place and would spend a month there each year until he retired.
Dr. FREEDOM received several awards, including the Council Award of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, presented to Ontario physicians who are judged to have been closest to meeting society's vision of an "ideal" physician. In 2000, he was named to the Order of Ontario.
Robert FREEDOM was born on February 27, 1941, in Baltimore. He died on May 7, 2005, in Halifax of renal failure as a result of diabetes. He was 64. He leaves his wife Penny and stepson Jonathan.

And watched you pass away
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us
To suffer that again
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you.
This day God took you home.
We love you Dad, you will always be in our Hearts

STALLEY, Francis " Frank" Palmer
Born: 29 May 1924 in Stratford, Ontario. Died: 04 March 2005 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Frank was the only child of the late Frank and Sarah Frances (VAUGHAN) STALLEY. He is survived by Sarah (GRANT) his beloved wife of 39 years, his much loved daughter Christian, her spouse Trevor BOSMAN, and his cherished grand_son Callum.
In his youth Frank distinguished himself as a promising concert pianist, and won many awards and scholarships. He held two degrees in music. After World War 2 interrupted his music career, he began a 42-year career in broadcasting, launching his new career at the local radio station in Stratford, Ontario. In the pre-television years to follow, he occupied positions in radio as news editor, reporter, script writer, program host, producer, and program director in as far-flung locations as northern Ontario, New Mexico, and California.
An avid proponent of public broadcasting, in 1953 Frank joined the television staff of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto and became involved in the production of many of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's early television programs. He was one of those who regularly anchored The National television news from 1954 to 1964. Among many other assignments during that decade he also co-hosted the first womens interest program Open House (which became Take 30); was the original host of Scan (the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's own weekly public relations program), and Music to See, one of the first Canadian Broadcasting Corporation programs to feature classical music on television. For diversion, Frank was a member of the original cast of the weekly television comedy show Nightcap. For several years he was the commercial announcer on the World Series Baseball Games.
In 1964 Frank left radio and television program production and moved to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's head Office in Ottawa as Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Regional Broadcasting. In 1968 he was posted to Vancouver as Director of Radio for British Columbia, and in 1972 moved to London, England as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Radio and Television Program Representative. He considered this position to be the highlight of his career, as it allowed him to live in and near his spiritual homes of England, France and Italy.
Franks final posting was to Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1978, where he took up the dual responsibilities of Resources Manager and Maritime Regional Talent Relations Officer. He retired in 1987, which enabled him to indulge his passion for travel. In his life he visited Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia, Northern and southern Africa, and most of North America. During his time in Halifax, he served for several years as a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Naval Memorial Trust (H.M.C.S. Sackville), and as a member of the inaugural Board of Directors of Symphony Nova Scotia. Frank was also an active member and strong supporter of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Pensioners Association. He was an Elder of the Presbyterian Church of St. David, and an active member of the Worship and Music Committee.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will take place at the Presbyterian Church of St. David, Grafton Street, Halifax on Thursday, March 10th at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (Nova Scotia Division), the Multiple Sclerosis Society (Atlantic Division), or a charity of your choice.

Frank STALLEY, Broadcaster: 1924-2005
Television pioneer who lost the power of speech during a boyhood bout of Bell's palsy was one of the first Canadian Broadcasting Corporation anchors on The National, writes Sandra MARTIN. He later became a network executive
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page S7
Long-time Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television broadcaster Frank STALLEY was a co-host with Anna Cameron on Open House, the precursor to Take Thirty, and an anchor and newsreader on the nightly news before moving from behind the cameras to a series of management jobs in London and across Canada.
Francis (Frank) Palmer STALLEY was born in Stratford, Ontario, the only child of Frank and Sarah Frances STALLEY. By the time he was 4, his parents realized that he had a natural aptitude for music. For the next 17 years, he trained to be a concert pianist and performed in recitals on radio and in local venues, winning many awards and scholarships. He studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and later at the Royal Schools of Music in London.
His musical training was interrupted in the mid-1930s when he was struck simultaneously with polio (then called infantile paralysis), which left him unable to walk, and Bell's palsy (trauma to the seventh cranial nerve), which deprived him of speech. To regain the ability to walk, he took swimming lessons and practised hard to regain the ability to talk, he spent hours speaking with a pencil between his teeth. A biographical sketch written for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1959 says Mr. STALLEY's "speech recovery was extremely difficult and even now... he has to consciously form each word before speaking."
He tried to enlist in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War but was rejected the first time because he was too young and the second time because he was suffering from mastoiditis, a condition that left him with diminished hearing in one ear.
So, in 1944, the 20-year-old Mr. STALLEY found a position as supervisor of elementary school music in Ontario's Bruce County. A year was enough to persuade him to seek his fortunes elsewhere. Through a mix of ingenuity and happenstance -- a neighbour offered him a job -- he found himself the "announcer-operator-news editor-commercial writer and technician" at CJCS in Stratford, Ontario Apparently, he also swept out the place at night.
A year later, he switched to CFCH in North Bay and a job as staff announcer. Even though he was promoted to chief announcer in 1947, he moved to KVER in Albuquerque, N.M., and a dual position as news editor and newscaster. Moving up meant moving around, or so he thought, as he headed for Los Angeles, where he was reduced to washing dishes, or "pearl diving" in the slang of the time. He found some success as a freelance announcer and as a writer of scripts for classical music programs. In 1948, he moved to San Francisco, where he stayed until the Korean War broke out. He then headed back to radio station CHOK in Sarnia, this time as program manager, a position he held until he went to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as an announcer in 1954.
He was a regular anchor on The National news, along with Larry Henderson and Rex Loring. Broadcaster Patrick WATSON remembers directing him as a newsreader when "I was a new boy and he a staff announcer, and that he was helpful and courteous and good at his job."
Broadcaster Vincent Tovell also remembers him from the early 1960s. "My memory of him is totally positive. He was easy, pleasant, very efficient, all of those nice things. Television was live and you had to be cool."
Among many other assignments during the 1950s and 1960s, Mr. STALLEY was the co-host of the first women's program, Open House, with broadcaster Anna Cameron. She remembers him as "a very nice and gracious man" who played the piano, sometimes even on the show.
Actor and broadcaster Paul SOLES, who co-hosted Take 30, the successor to Open House, first with Ms. Cameron and then with Adrienne Clarkson, says Mr. STALLEY "had a light, genuine, engaging manner and voice."
As a neophyte performer on television, Mr. SOLES looked on announcers such as Mr. STALLEY as "the standard setters" for the use of language and phrasing. "I recall his calm, often wry, welcoming and gentleness" as a host, and his "quiet formality."
After only a decade before the cameras, Mr. STALLEY "moved up the line" into administration, working first in Ottawa as executive assistant to Charles Jennings, the vice-president of regional broadcasting. That's where he met and married Sarah GRANT, his wife of nearly 40 years. "He was a wonderful, intelligent, humorous, caring individual," she said.
In 1968, he was posted to Vancouver as director of radio for British Columbia, and then to London as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's radio and television program representative. "He loved that," said Mrs. STALLEY. " His family had come from England and he had spent a lot of time there with his parents in his youth. Living in London in the '70s was the time to be there."
After London, he was given the choice of moving to Toronto or Halifax; he chose the latter partly because his wife's family came from there and partly because he wanted a quieter posting as he headed toward retirement. He stepped down from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation at the age of 63 in 1987. In retirement, travel, music and his membership in the Presbyterian church became big interests.
In the past decade, he survived three serious illnesses -- bacterial meningitis, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and a pulmonary embolism. "We thought he would always survive everything," his wife said last week. Then shortly before Christmas, he developed an unusual and aggressive type of lung cancer. Not even he could beat cancer.
Frank STALLEY was born in Stratford, Ontario, on May 29, 1924. He died of lung cancer in Halifax on March 4, 2005. He was 80. He is survived by his wife, Sarah and daughter Christian.

BIGELOW, Wilfred Gordon
After a life lived with caring, intellectual curiosity and a profound sense of spirituality, Bill died peacefully in Toronto on Easter Sunday 2005. Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Bill was the son of Dr. Wilfred BIGELOW, founder of the first medical clinic in Canada, and Grace GORDON, nurse and midwife. He was raised in an environment that encouraged a love of family, nature, music and education. Bill attended Brandon College in the early 1930's and graduated from medicine at the University of Toronto in 1938. Following this, he served overseas as a Captain in the Royal Canadian Medical Army Corps, performing battle surgery on the frontlines. Returning home from the war, he furthered his studies at John Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland specializing in cardiac surgery. His experiences in the war with amputations due to frostbite led him to explore the principle of hypothermia. He felt strongly that to make progress in cardiac surgery, surgeons needed to open the heart and operate directly. Building on his wartime experiences, he theorized that if you could cool the heart, you could reduce oxygen requirements, interrupt circulation and open the heart. In 1947, Bill returned to Toronto, and established a hypothermia research unit at The Banting Institute. There, he performed the world's first open heart surgery on a dog using the principal of hypothermia, paving the way for its use on humans. At his lab, Dr. BIGELOW and his colleagues Dr. John CALLAGHAN and Dr. John HOPPS also developed the cardiac pacemaker. Bill was recognized internationally as the father of Canadian heart surgery. He received the Gairdner Foundation Award in 1959, was inducted into the Canadian Medical Association's Hall of Fame in 1997 and into the Order of Canada in 1981. Bill published numerous medical articles in scientific journals, educated aspiring cardiac surgeons from around the world, and authored two books, Cold Hearts and Mysterious Heparin. Along with his passion for medicine, Bill will be remembered for his love of the outdoors and his work on environmental causes. He served as a director of the Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy of Canada. He spent many happy hours on the islands of Georgian Bay, and at his farm in Collingwood with his beloved family, horses and dogs. He was an avid bird watcher who went on frequent field trips with his longtime friend Dr. Bruce CHARLES. In his latter years, he enjoyed many happy hours with his golf buddies at the Toronto Hunt Club. First and foremost, Bill was a family man and a devoted and loyal friend to many. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of almost 60 years, Ruth JENNINGS, who attracted his attention as a caring and efficient operating nurse at Toronto General Hospital. He was also predeceased by his infant brother Jack, and his sisters Mary GRANT (Millard,) and Toody McKINNON (Keith.) He is survived by his brother Dr. Dan BIGELOW and his wife Dr. Sonia SACEDA. As a loving father and grandfather, Bill led by example, demonstrating the importance of loyalty and the power of positive thinking and perseverance. He will be deeply missed by his daughter Pixie Bigelow CURRIE (Ian) of Toronto, and sons, John (Ellie) of Honolulu, Hawaii, Dan (Blanche) of Petersfield, Manitoba, and Bill of Toronto. He is remembered with affection by his grandchildren Scott CURRIE (Sarah,) Susanne COUTTS (Rob), Mathew BIGELOW, and Angela BEATTON (Don) and his nieces, nephews and their families. Bill adored children and was delighted with the birth of his three great grandchildren, Sophie and Chloe COUTTS and Stella CURRIE. The family recognizes with gratitude his caregivers Alma ABLONA, Beth LARA and Helen ABLONA and the staff of Belmont House. The funeral and interment will be private. A memorial service will be held at Rosedale United Church on Saturday, April 23, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. Donations in his memory may be made to establish The Bigelow Lectureship, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, The Banting Institute, 100 College Street, Room 311, Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1L5, telephone (416) 978-5148; or to continue The Bigelow Book Prize, Cardiovascular Sciences Collaborative Program, 150 College Street, Room 83D, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 3E2, telephone (416) 978-7744.

Tuesday, September 27, 2005, Page S11
Philosopher and teacher born in Toronto on November 13, 1918.
A member of a prominent Nova Scotian family, he attended Upper Canada College and afterward went to Queen's University. Later, he attended Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, where he switched from law to philosophy. He returned home to teach philosophy at Dalhousie University in Halifax from 1947 to 1959, followed by an unhappy experience at newly formed York University in Toronto where "they forced me to use textbooks I thought were bullshit. I had no choice but to resign." He soon became chairman of the department of religious studies at McMaster University in Hamilton and stayed almost 20 years. In 1980, he returned to Dalhousie. By then he had been lionized for such books as his 1965 Lament for a Nation: The Defeat of Canadian Nationalism. In later years, his passionate nationalism was drained by his conviction that Canada had been sold out to the Americans. The Canadian ruling class, he said, identified with U.S. corporate goals.

MacRAE, Janet M. " Jill" (née GRANT)
By Bill MacRAE and Susie MacRAE, Wednesday, November 23, 2005, Page A20
Mother, great-grandmother, great-aunt, matriarch. Born May 9, 1907, in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Died May 21 in Toronto, aged Janet M. GRANT was one of 10 children born to T. Geddes and Christiana GRANT. As the last surviving member of her family and generation, her passing marks the 115th anniversary of her parents' marriage.
Grandma left Trinidad in the early 1920s to attend the Halifax Ladies College. Upon graduation, she moved on to study piano and voice at the Toronto Conservatory of Music.
It was during this time that she met a dashing young man named Harry MacRAE and they were smitten with each other. After his graduation from medical school, they were married. They had four children, Ria Jean, Janet, Bill and Margaret, and eventually had 16 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.
They travelled, explored the world and filled their lives with culture and experience and were fortunate to have celebrated a remarkable 50 years of marriage together.
Harry passed away in 1983 and, for the next 22 years, Janet was the matriarch of the family. Over the years, she taught us the importance of family and extended family: Everyone was to feel like they belonged.
Grandma was actively involved in several Toronto cultural associations, including: the Women's Musical Club of Toronto; the Women's Art Association of Canada and the Toronto Heliconian Club. She had a passion for bridge and played competitively at the Granite Club until the age of 93. She was also a large part of Deer Park United Church and sang in the choir for many years.
What was so extraordinary about Grandma was her thirst for knowledge and awareness. She served as a great source of wisdom for her family. Grandma knew that keeping an open mind would allow her to enjoy and appreciate the changing times. She never stopped caring, whether it was about her family and their daily lives, current political events or even what score Mike Weir got in his current round at the Masters golf tournament. Her vast number of Friends with whom she corresponded around the world is testament to her loyalty and compassion.
She taught us that there were important things in life: respect, acceptance, humour and grace. And of course, let us not forget about good grammar and proper enunciation, as well as the ever-important good haircut.
She bore her last illness with courage, dying as she had lived, with grace and dignity.
Grandma's core was love, and her love manifested itself as kindness. She was always interested in people's welfare, not to pry into people's affairs and gossip, but out of genuine love and concern. Grandma always had a listening ear, an open heart and, if needed, a ready cheque-book.
In her 94th year, Grandma was asked to write the closing chapter in a book about Canadian-Caribbean relations with a focus on Trinidad. She concludes her account by lamenting the Trinidad of today, which is experiencing an epidemic of crime, corruption and racial tension, and is a society with broken relationships. What Grandma emphasized is that with forgiveness comes reconciliation. And with reconciliation comes healed relationships.
And that is what Grandma was all about: developing, healing and fostering relationships. This is what she passed on to her family. Sharing her words of wisdom, Grandma would tell us: Laugh, remember, be good to others, take care of others and cherish family.
Bill is Janet's son and Susie her granddaughter.

Shot man died shielding brothers
By Emily MATHIEU and Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporters
A 22-year-old man shot dead in an Etobicoke apartment Saturday afternoon was killed defending his two young brothers, his grief-stricken mother said yesterday.
Toronto police say Orlando GRUNDY was killed after "a number of persons" entered his 13th-floor apartment at 2777 Kipling Ave. and began shooting at about 5 p.m. Saturday.
Residents in neighbouring apartments talked of hearing shotgun blasts coming from apartment 1308 where GRUNDY, of Jane Street, had gathered with his brothers and several other people.
GRUNDY's mother Sydney is in no doubt about her son's bravery.
"He dove in front of his brothers," she said yesterday as the family gathered to discuss what little they knew about Saturday's events. "He took the bullet for the other two."
The two younger boys, both injured in the gunfire, "were holding their brother in their arms" when police arrived on the chaotic scene, she said.
"His brother was laying in their arms, and they handcuffed them."
Two other men were injured in the attack, which GRUNDY's family said occurred when "people came in and started shooting at everything." They were taken to Sunnybrook hospital, where one victim remains in critical condition with a gunshot wound to his face, while the other is out of intensive care and expected to make a full recovery.
GRUNDY's mother said she was beginning to hear details from her two younger boys, who were later released from custody and gathered with family members yesterday.
"We all loved him," she said softly as she reflected on her dead son, whom she called a "soldier of love.
"He's my oldest son."
The gunmen fled the building and, despite a massive search by police and members of the Emergency Task Force, managed to elude capture.
Toronto police yesterday appealed for the public's assistance in tracking down the shooters responsible for Toronto's seventh homicide this year, but investigators have so far not released a description of the wanted men.
The GRUNDY family's grief capped a violent weekend in Toronto, one that also saw Szilvia VERES, 35, of Toronto killed in a Friday night shooting and 50-year-old Donald Andrew LATREMOUILLE die of unknown causes during an argument with roommate Christopher Gordon PHILLIPS at their Davenport Rd. residence Friday. PHILLIPS, 27, has been charged with manslaughter.
Saturday's violence included an early-morning shooting at the Flamingo Bar on College St. that left a man and a woman slightly injured.
A suspect in the Flamingo bar shooting turned himself in late Saturday.
Edwin VALASQUEZ, 20, turned himself in to 14 Division police around 9 p.m. Saturday; he faces numerous charges including attempted murder while using a firearm and two counts of aggravated assault. Faruth PORTOBANCO, 25, of Toronto was arrested earlier in the Flamingo incident.
Two off-duty paramedics, in the club when gunfire broke out at 2: 30 a.m. Saturday are being recommended for civilian citations after they tackled the gunman and disarmed him.
Gunfire continued to echo on Toronto streets just after noon yesterday, sending shoppers ducking for cover in the parking lot outside several stores in the Albion Rd. and Islington Ave. area of Rexdale.
Police said a man was sitting in his car in a plaza parking lot at 950 Albion Rd. when three suspects approached and "almost immediately opened fire with three guns."
Although a number of bullets hit his car, shattering the windows, the intended victim was able to flee without injury, Detective Debbie HARRIS said in a statement.
Police converged on the area and, with the assistance of heavily armed Emergency Task Force officers, arrested three suspects and recovered two handguns and a quantity of drugs.
Ali Nassir SHOWBEG, 23, faces charges including attempted murder and possession of cocaine for trafficking.
The other two suspects, Sean Conrad GRANT, 21, and Vanessa Charlene BAILEY, 19, are charged with possession of a restricted firearm and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
And police are continuing their search for the suspect in Friday's fatal shooting of VERES, who died instantly after a man opened fire as she and her husband, 46-year-old Kemenczy MIKLOS of Toronto, were in a parking lot at 15 Brookbanks Dr., in the York Mills Rd. and Don Valley Parkway area.
A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for John KOVACS, 52, of Etobicoke, who was last seen fleeing in a 1999 silver Honda with Ontario plates 149 WRX. KOVACS faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder.

BIGELOW, Wilfred Gordon
After a life lived with caring, intellectual curiosity and a profound sense of spirituality, Bill died peacefully in Toronto on Easter Sunday 2005. Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Bill was the son of Dr. Wilfred BIGELOW, founder of the first medical clinic in Canada, and Grace GORDON, nurse and midwife. He was raised in an environment that encouraged a love of family, nature, music and education. Bill attended Brandon College in the early 1930's and graduated from medicine at the University of Toronto in 1938. Following this, he served overseas as a Captain in the Royal Canadian Medical Army Corps, performing battle surgery on the frontlines. Returning home from the war, he furthered his studies at John Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland specializing in cardiac surgery. His experiences in the war with amputations due to frostbite led him to explore the principle of hypothermia. He felt strongly that to make progress in cardiac surgery, surgeons needed to open the heart and operate directly. Building on his wartime experiences, he theorized that if you could cool the heart, you could reduce oxygen requirements, interrupt circulation and open the heart. In 1947, Bill returned to Toronto, and established a hypothermia research unit at The Banting Institute. There, he performed the world's first open heart surgery on a dog using the principal of hypothermia, paving the way for its use on humans. At his lab, Dr. BIGELOW and his colleagues Dr. John CALLAGHAN and Dr. John HOPPS also developed the cardiac pacemaker. Bill was recognized internationally as the father of Canadian heart surgery. He received the Gairdner Foundation Award in 1959, was inducted into the Canadian Medical Association's Hall of Fame in 1997 and into the Order of Canada in 1981. Bill published numerous medical articles in scientific journals, educated aspiring cardiac surgeons from around the world, and authored two books, Cold Hearts and Mysterious Heparin. Along with his passion for medicine, Bill will be remembered for his love of the outdoors and his work on environmental causes. He served as a director of the Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy of Canada. He spent many happy hours on the islands of Georgian Bay, and at his farm in Collingwood with his beloved family, horses and dogs. He was an avid bird watcher who went on frequent field trips with his longtime friend Dr. Bruce CHARLES. In his latter years, he enjoyed many happy hours with his golf buddies at the Toronto Hunt Club. First and foremost, Bill was a family man and a devoted and loyal friend to many. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of almost 60 years, Ruth JENNINGS, who attracted his attention as a caring and efficient operating nurse at Toronto General Hospital. He was also predeceased by his infant brother Jack, and his sisters Mary GRANT (Millard,) and Toody McKINNON (Keith.) He is survived by his brother Dr. Dan BIGELOW and his wife Dr. Sonia SACEDA. As a loving father and grandfather, Bill led by example, demonstrating the importance of loyalty and the power of positive thinking and perseverance. He will be deeply missed by his daughter Pixie Bigelow CURRIE (Ian) of Toronto, and sons, John (Ellie) of Honolulu, Hawaii, Dan (Blanche) of Petersfield, Manitoba, and Bill of Toronto. He is remembered with affection by his grandchildren Scott CURRIE (Sarah,) Susanne COUTTS (Rob), Mathew BIGELOW, and Angela BEATTON (Don) and his nieces, nephews and their families. Bill adored children and was delighted with the birth of his three great-grandchildren, Sophie and Chloe COUTTS and Stella CURRIE. The family recognizes with gratitude his caregivers Alma ABLONA, Beth LARA and Helen ABLONA and the staff of Belmont House. The funeral and interment will be private. A memorial service will be held at Rosedale United Church on Saturday, April 23, 2005 at 2: 00 p.m. Donations in his memory may be made to establish The Bigelow Lectureship, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, T

GRANT, A.I. "Sandy" (September 11, 1934-August 22, 2005)
As a result of a tragic accident Sandy died very suddenly on Monday, August 22nd, 2005. He leaves behind his widow, Anne, and his brother in England, Patrick. Sandy was born in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. As a child he lived in Egypt, South Africa, Trinidad and Scotland. He attended Trinity College, Cambridge University in England where he graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Chemical Engineering. After serving in the Royal Air Force as a Navigator he immigrated to Canada where he joined Shell Canada as an engineer at the Montreal East Refinery in 1958. In 1962 he was transferred to Shell's head Office then located in Toronto. He ended his career with Shell as Economic Advisor to the Oil Planning Division. In 1984 when Shell moved their head Office to Calgary, Sandy elected to take early retirement. However his services to the Company were still required and for the next ten years he became a Consultant to the Company continuing essentially in doing his previous job. Sandy had many interests. He was a Rugby player and joined the Toronto Irish Rugby Club. As well as playing for them for several years he also served in an administrative capacity, culminating in becoming President of the Club. Subsequently he was elected as President of the Ontario Rugby Union. Other than Rugby his great love was sailing. In 1963 he and his wife joined the Boulevard Club where they owned and sailed an "Albacore" for several years. Sandy was elected as Commodore of the Boulevard Club serving in that position for two years. Then he and Anne bought a bigger boat and moved to the newly formed Mimico Cruising Club joining it in 1978. Sandy played a very active role at this Club. In addition to racing their boat, he became a member of the Board of Directors. Over the years he was elected Director of Dry Sailing, Fleet Captain, Treasurer, Rear Commodore, and Vice Commodore and during the last two years served as Secretary to the Club. After owning and racing several boats he and Anne gave up sail boats and bought a power boat. But Sandy did not give up racing. He became the Race Committee Chairman and was responsible for all aspects of the Club's active race program. As well as serving Mimico Cruising Club Sandy was a member of the Canadian Coast Guard Auxilliary. There he became a Director and served for a while as Treasurer to the local branch of this organization. He was deeply involved in the Coast Guard "Search and Rescue" program and was instrumental in Mimico Cruising Club acquiring a vessel that became an active part of that program. Sandy had another sporting love. He was a keen Scuba diver and in over 30 years of diving, mostly in the Carribbean and the Bahamas, had more than 1500 deep dives to his credit. Sandy loved classical music and for more than 35 years he and Anne had season tickets for the Canadian Opera Company as well as enjoying the Toronto Symphony concerts. Respecting his wishes, he is being cremated and his ashes will be disposed of as he would have liked. There will be no funeral.
