A champion for 'little people'
Al HOLLINGWORTH 'gave himself to everybody else'
Lawyer, judge, politician a caring representative
By Sikander Z. HASHMI, Staff Reporter
It's not too often that a lawyer has a client walk into the office brandishing a handgun.
But, Allan HOLLINGWORTH was faced with that very scenario, according to long-time friend and colleague, retired senator Richard STANBURY.
The upset gunman strolled into HOLLINGWORTH's office where the two remained for 15 minutes. They walked out together, with HOLLINGWORTH consoling the gunman, arms around his shoulders.
Allan Henry HOLLINGWORTH, who went from being an intelligence officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force to the judicial bench, with stops as a lawyer and a parliamentarian, died August 16. He was 86.
"He always saw himself as the spokesman for the 'little people,'" said STANBURY. "No wonder he had Friends in every walk of life."
Born and raised in Brockville, HOLLINGWORTH earned bachelor of commerce and bachelor of arts degrees at Queen's University in four years. After leaving the air force, he graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1948 and opened his law practice on Avenue Rd. in North York.
HOLLINGWORTH was soon elected to the school board and a year later was voted into township council. In 1953, HOLLINGWORTH was sent to Ottawa as Liberal member of Parliament for York Centre.
HOLLINGWORTH earned a reputation as a caring and effective representative for his constituents. STANBURY recalled the time when people were flocking to new subdivisions in York Centre, but with no mail delivery they had to travel miles to fetch their letters from the post office.
"Al HOLLINGWORTH tried to persuade the post office to extend house-to-house mail delivery to these new homes," but to no avail, said STANBURY.
But, HOLLINGWORTH wouldn't give up. "He got the personal phone number of the postmaster general and called him every morning at 9 o'clock until he finally got house-to-house delivery established."
HOLLINGWORTH cared equally about national and international issues. He was one of the first to speak in the Commons about the need for Canada to have its own flag and he promoted Canada's foreign policy. But in 1957, HOLLINGWORTH fell victim to the "Diefenbaker Sweep" that saw the Liberal government replaced by the Conservatives under John Diefenbaker.
"It took Al six months to accept that... his constituents were not really disappointed in him," said STANBURY.
Despite his preoccupation with his career, HOLLINGWORTH was a devoted family man who loved life, said daughter Roxanne, 54.
"He would always be there and have time for me no matter what. He was just a loving, gentle, sweet man who gave up himself selflessly to his family and to everybody else."
In 1973, HOLLINGWORTH was appointed to Peel County court and four years later was promoted to the then-Supreme Court of Ontario. He remained on the bench until 1997.
HOLLINGWORTH was fluent in French, thanks in part to his French-Canadian wife Veronica, and was assigned to French-speaking cases.
He was also proficient in German, Spanish, and Italian, languages he mainly picked up by hearing interpreters in his courtroom and then studying the language at home.
But he didn't stop there, according to Roxanne. HOLLINGWORTH would attempt to speak "whatever language he could to whomever he could."
At age 80, HOLLINGWORTH was introduced to the Internet and spent hours listening to Spanish radio stations online to perfect his command of the language.
According to STANBURY, HOLLINGWORTH's English was "wonderful" and he was always trying to find unusual yet expressive words for his discourses in Parliament and in the courts.
"They were masterpieces of English and were almost always upheld in appeal," recalled HOLLINGWORTH's former law partner. "He was very proud of that."
HOLLINGWORTH's interest in and tolerance for other cultures was exemplary, said Roxanne.
"He just accepted everybody and just wanted to know so much more about everybody. He just thought the world was a place where everybody should get along and everybody should learn about each other, because when you start to learn about people, you realize that we're all the same."
HOLLINGWORTH was very active physically, working out for 1 1/2 hours every morning until three years ago. He played tennis as long as his heath allowed it, and he also skied and swam.
HOLLINGWORTH leaves wife Veronica and two daughters, Michelle, and her husband Curtis BASLER of Calgary, and Roxanne HOLLINGWORTH of Toronto.

POKORNY, Dusan
Professor Emeritus, Department of Economics and Political Science, University of Toronto
Dusan POKORNY, a much-loved Professor at the University of Toronto, died July 11, 2005 after a long debilitating illness. In the course of almost 30 years at both the St. George and Erindale campuses he influenced and shaped the lives of countless students and colleagues. His rigorous intellect challenged conventional wisdom, ranging from critiques of Marxian thought to Hegel, Habermas and others. Among his many publications is the two volume opus Efficiency and Justice in the Industrial World: The Failure of the Soviet Experiment and The Uneasy Success of Postwar Europe. He thrived on intellectual discourse, in the classroom and out, with colleagues, many students who went on to become colleagues, and family.
He brought his family to Canada after the Soviet-led occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968. While in Czechoslovakia he served in the diplomatic service in India and elsewhere and was one of the key behind-the-scenes figures in the liberalization process of Prague Spring in 1968, working closely with the Soviet-deposed Alexander DUBCEK.
He had a profound belief in the potential for improvement, whether that be in putting a "human face" on socialism or in daily interactions. He was a kind, gentle, unassuming man, adoring his wife of 40 years, the prominent Slovak writer Jaroslava BLAZKOVA. She, his stepsons Andrew and Mark STANCEK, and all who met him have lost a true giant of a man.

Family swim turns tragic
About 200 people watch as body found in murky water
Shocked mother didn't realize two other sons were missing
By Chris WILSON- SMITH, Torstar News Service
Guelph Mercury
With Files From Henry STANCU
Fergus, Ontario -- In shock from seeing her son's body, a Toronto woman forgot about her other two boys. And then the unthinkable happened.
One boy drowned and his two young brothers were airlifted to hospital yesterday after being discovered in an unsupervised swimming area at a conservation area in Fergus, near Guelph.
Larry LE, 9, was pronounced dead at Groves Memorial Hospital in Fergus.
Calvin LE, 7, was taken to Groves Memorial and later airlifted to Toronto Sick Children's Hospital, police said. Anthony LE, 8, was airlifted to McMaster Hospital in Hamilton and is listed in critical condition, police said last night.
"He's doing better," the boys' uncle said of Calvin, as he stood with a group of relatives last night outside Sick Kids. "He's breathing on his own now."
The uncle, who did not want to be identified, said both parents were at the Toronto hospital and were heading to Hamilton late last night.
The parents, who are in their 30s and live on Jane St. in North York, were at the park for a day trip. They have no other children.
It was the second drowning in the area this weekend. On Saturday, a Kitchener man drowned at the Dolime Quarry just outside of Guelph.
In Fergus, about 200 people watched early in the afternoon as Larry was pulled out of the water onto the crowded beach at Belwood Lake Conservation Area, said Keith WHITTAKER, a 50-year-old Toronto resident who was fishing nearby with his son.
"People were trying to save him, and it didn't look like they were doing so well," WHITTAKER said, his voice breaking.
It wasn't until someone was attempting to resuscitate Larry that the mother realized she didn't know where her other two children were.
"All of a sudden she cried out that her other two sons were missing," WHITTAKER said. "It was terrible."
A group of bystanders frantically searched the water for about 10 minutes before someone spotted the other boys under water, said WHITTAKER's 22-year-old son, Mark.
"It was the worst day of my life... if only we knew the other two kids were missing when we were all watching to make sure the first boy was living, we might have been able to do more," he said.
The Toronto brothers were found in about a metre of water in an area where beach-goers were swimming just before the first boy was pulled from the water, Keith WHITTAKER said.
"We were going crazy trying to find them, but the water was so thick... it almost made it impossible to see anything.
"Finally, somebody bumped into a body."
The older WHITTAKER said all three boys "looked lifeless."
One portion of the swimming area is fenced off for children -- it doesn't get any deeper than about a metre. Keith WHITTAKER said the bodies were found outside the kids' area, where Grand River Conservation Authority spokesperson Dave SCHULTZ said it gets as deep as 4.5 metres.
Emergency crews, including Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police and two helicopter ambulances, arrived at 1: 50 p.m. -- about 20 minutes after the second and third boys were found, said Const. Jennifer SMITH.
"This is an extremely tragic incident, and obviously the boys' mother is upset," SMITH said.
Keith WHITTAKER said waiting for the emergency crews "felt like an eternity. Bystanders said the boys' mother was having trouble communicating with emergency response crews.
"She was screaming for her sons, that's all we know for sure," WHITTAKER said. "I just wish we could have done more."
Visitors to the spot are confronted by an 2.4 by 2.4 metre sign that reads: "Beach patrol services have been discontinued... Do not leave children unattended."
The conservation authority's SCHULTZ said the beach patrol was cut in 1996 when funding from the provincial government dwindled.
"They weren't necessarily trained in emergency response, but having another set of eyes sometimes helped," he said. The authority will examine if system changes need to be made, SCHULZ said.
Extreme weekend heat was also a "likely contributing factor" in the drowning of a Kitchener man on Saturday night, SMITH said.
Three men had taken a cab from Kitchener to cool off and take a swim in the quarry, police said. The 28-year-old man, whose name was not released, jumped into the water at the Dolime Quarry at County Road 124 and Kossuth Road.
He came up once, waved his arms, went back under and did not resurface, police said.
One of the man's Friends called 911 but emergency personnel were not able to locate the victim.

An 'unbelievable' loss
Families try to cope with gun slayings of two young men
Summer weekend began with a wedding and ended in death
By Henry STANCU and Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporters
More than 1,000 people are expected at an Etobicoke mosque this morning to mourn the deaths of two young men killed early Monday and to pray for Toronto's gun violence to end.
Loyan Ahmed GILAO, 23, and Ali Mohamud ALI, 19, will be honoured in a 9 a.m. service at the Khalid Bin Al Waliid mosque on Bethridge Rd. near Kipling Ave.
Last night, throngs of people visited, telephoned and emailed the two Friends' families in Etobicoke and Richmond Hill.
Mohamed GILAO, a prominent member of the Somali community in Toronto, described his son's death as "unbelievable" and the outpouring of condolences as "overwhelming."
"Every week, we had set aside one day to communicate as father and son, but lately Loyan has been busy; we didn't have that opportunity in the seven days before he died. That's the sad part," he said, weeping.
"My wife (Ayan OSMAN) is very strong for me and we are leaning on each other."
GILAO, a third-year York University commerce student, and ALI were celebrating with a group of Friends Sunday, the day after serving in the wedding party at a friend's marriage.
The two were gunned down after a night out at the Phoenix Concert Theatre on Sherbourne St. They were with a group of six to seven men, standing at the corner of Homewood Ave. and Maitland Place after leaving the nightclub.
A man walked toward them on Homewood and, without any words, pulled out a handgun and fired several times toward the group, police said.
ALI died from a gunshot wound to the head and GILAO died from a gunshot wound to the chest, an autopsy showed yesterday.
GILAO had been planning to announce his engagement to his girlfriend Zainab ALI in the coming months.
The elder GILAO, who has travelled several times on peace missions to his homeland, is a respected figure in both the Somali community and across Greater Toronto.
He was praised as a major "touchstone" in a community that transcends culture, religion and politics. Friends said the elder GILAO was given the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award two years ago and honoured with a Young Men's Christian Association Peace Medallion for helping people in his adopted community and homeland.
The couple, who immigrated to Canada from Somalia in 1990, have four daughters, 8 to 20.
In Richmond Hill, ALI's grieving family received relatives and Friends at their house. ALI's uncle, Ahmed JAMA, said that since Monday as many as 500 people had come to pay their respects.
About two dozen mourners stood outside the home last night, talking in small groups and keeping a quiet watch on ALI's father, mother and three sisters. Visitors pulled up in a steady stream of cars. Neighbours came on foot.
ALI's father, Mahamud JAMA, said his son moved to Vancouver eight months ago to chase his dreams. He said ALI dreamed big, with all the energy and optimism of a 19-year-old man who had just begun to make his way in the world.
"He had a lot of ambitions," JAMA said. "He was planning to open a business, his own trucking company. He would say, 'Dad, this is what I'm planning. I know I need to work hard.'"
JAMA said ALI came back two weeks ago for the wedding.
He made a full vacation out of his Toronto visit, arriving just in time for Caribana two weekends ago, spending time with his family and attending the wedding on Friday. JAMA said ALI's holiday was almost over when he was killed. "He had a rental car due Monday."
JAMA said his son wasn't involved in any gang or criminal activity. "My kid has never been with any gang," he said. "He was not violent. He had no record with the police."
The gun violence in Toronto has cost JAMA his only son, and he's furious about it.
"Get rid of the thugs who are killing innocents," he said. "We are grieving now. Every day another family is grieving. The city has to clear this sort of thing up. We have to get rid of these guns."
ALI was born 19 years ago in Hargeisa, Somalia. His family came to Canada when he was 2.
Police are seeking a man in his 20s, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet and 150 to 160 pounds, with black braids and a goatee. He was wearing jeans, a black T-shirt and a blue do-rag.

Abducted Greater Toronto Area man executed in Iraq
Had returned to homeland to help
Kidnappers were disguised as police
By Henry STANCU and Bruce CAMPION- SMITH, Staff Reporters
Zaid MEERWALI believed that by going back to his Iraqi homeland to work in his family's import-export business he could help bring stability back to the wartorn nation.
But he was kidnapped, beaten and executed by a group of men dressed in police uniforms who overpowered his bodyguard earlier this month.
The 32-year-old was buried in Baghdad yesterday, the day after his body was found. His throat was cut and he was shot in the back of the head, execution-style, said his brother Munir MEERWALI, 51, of Richmond Hill.
"The reason is because he is Canadian, he is Kurdish, he is Shia and he is wealthy. These are four crimes to Al Qaeda," Munir MEERWALI said. "He tried to do something good for his country, and, unfortunately, this is what he got."
Zaid MEERWALI, the youngest in a Richmond Hill family of six brothers and five sisters, went back to Iraq a year ago and six months later married a woman who lives there.
Munir MEERWALI said his brother was at home with his wife when his bodyguard told him police had come to the house and wanted to talk to him.
"There were 10 men in police uniforms who came with police cars. They held the security guard and hit his wife on the head and locked her in the washroom," Munir MEERWALI said.
After taking his money, wallet, jewellery, passport and cellphone, they took him away in the trunk of one of the cars.
The abductors had called twice on his mobile phone to arrange for a $250,000 ransom.
"We had the money, but they didn't call back," Munir MEERWALI said.
He said he had tried to persuade his brother not to go back.
"I told him the situation was not good. He said he could get a bodyguard, but one bodyguard wasn't enough."
"He went back to help his country, and, unfortunately, this happened. He was an honest man who believed the country could be rebuilt. The five MEERWALI sisters live in Iraq; two brothers live in Canada, one lives in Jordan and another in Iraq. A sixth brother left Iraq and spent time in Britain following an abduction attempt in which he managed to kill two of his would-be captors a year ago.
Prime Minister Paul Martin made public the news of the Canadian's death late yesterday and expressed his "deepest condolences" to the family.
"It is with both profound sadness and abhorrence that I learned of the circumstances of his death," Martin said in a statement.
He condemned the "barbaric crime" and said that Canada remains committed to a "peaceful and prosperous Iraq."
Martin used MEERWALI's death as a warning to other Canadians who may be thinking about going to Iraq, where bombings and shootings are a daily occurrence and where more than 1,800 American soldiers have been killed since the U.S.-led invasion in March, 2003.
"I would like to remind Canadians at this time against all travel to Iraq. Any Canadians in Iraq should leave. The situation remains volatile and the Government of Canada cannot provide consular assistance to Canadian citizens in distress," he said.
Dan McTeague, parliamentary secretary responsible for Canadians abroad, said the threat level to foreigners, including Canadians, remains very high.
The family notified Foreign Affairs August 8 that MEERWALI had been seized and informed it yesterday that he had been killed.
"There was no request for assistance," said Foreign Affairs spokesperson Pamela Greenwell. "The family wished to manage it themselves and did not want publicity."
A memorial service for Zaid MEERWALI is to be held at a Richmond Hill mosque Thursday evening.

Dispute over woman cited in slaying
Man, 21, shot as children played nearby
By Henry STANCU and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters
A perceived slight over a woman may be behind the daylight fatal shooting of a 21-year-old man yesterday in a North York park as children played nearby.
"It was about disrespect," said a local resident who believes that scenario led to the man's death at Upwood Park, near Jane St. and Lawrence Ave. W., the latest in a string of fatal shootings this summer.
The resident said the shooter thought the victim had been "messing with his girl" and bragging about it.
The victim was Rommel MOLINA, who grew up and lived nearby in a Lawrence Ave. apartment building with his parents and siblings, Friends said. Police weren't confirming the victim's identity last night.
The victim's brother, believed to be 19, rushed to the scene after learning of the shooting. He fought back tears and leaned against a police vehicle for support before he was escorted away by police.
Friends with the victim when he was shot are co-operating with police, said duty Insp. Tom FITZGERALD of 12 Division.
"My understanding is they were just having a smoke," FITZGERALD said. "A dispute developed and there was a push, shove and a shot."
Police said late last night two men approached the victim and one of them pulled out a gun.
Earlier, a resident, who didn't want to be identified, said the gunman was on a bicycle that he wheeled into the park just after 5 p.m. The resident said the killer rode over to where the victim was standing, pulled a gun from his trousers and fired two shots, striking him once in the chest.
The gunman then calmly turned the bike around and rode "casually" out of the park, leaving the man sprawled on the vacant bocce court, the resident said, adding there were four kids in the park at the time.
Police were hunting for a gunman and a motive for the fatal shooting, the 34th of the year compared to 27 for all of 2004.
Efforts by emergency crews to revive the victim in the park failed and he was pronounced dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.
Emergency Task Force officers and the canine unit searched nearby ravines and a string of parks that line Black Creek.
"Why did it happen to him?" said a shaken Steve SIMPSON, who arrived at the park near Marshlynn Ave. as the news of MOLINA's death spread quickly in the community.
"He was a good guy, and probably was just hanging out getting ready to go to work," he said, adding his friend of one year drove a forklift at a factory.
SIMPSON said he was unaware of MOLINA being embroiled in any kind of trouble.
Fred WALSH, a resident, said his daughter, who wasn't speaking to reporters but was interviewed by police, told him she was in the park with her three children when the shots rang out, sending them fleeing.

Police I.D. latest shooting victim
City's 37th fatal shooting this year
Victim falls outside North York plaza
By Henry STANCU, Staff Reporter
A man was shot to death at a North York plaza last night, the latest in an unprecedented summer of fatal shootings.
Police arrived at the Yorkwoods Shopping Plaza, on Jane Street, south of Finch Ave. W. after getting calls about gunfire at 9: 45 p.m.
They found a man in his 20s sprawled in the parking lot in front of a pizzeria where he was pronounced dead by paramedics. He was shot in the chest.
This morning, police identified the victim as Sureshkumar KANAGARATNAM, 28, of Toronto.
Clara McDOWELL, a neighbourhood resident, began to cry as she recalled what happened.
"I've never seen anything like this before in my life," she said. She was with her neighbours sitting outside their townhouse behind the plaza when they heard the shots.
Last summer, a man was shot to death at the same spot.
It is also an area that has seen several shootings this year, including the drive-by shooting of 4-year-old Shaquan CADOUGAN, who was hit three times in front of his Driftwood Ave., about two blocks away.
This is also the second fatal shooting in four days in the Jane St. and Driftwood Ave. area.
On Saturday, Andre BURNETT, 24, died in a flurry of gunshots while running across a footbridge over Driftwood, just a few hundred metres from Jane St. It is the 55th homicide of the year, and the 37th fatal shooting. That's 10 more fatal shootings than all of last year.

Factory worker shot dead on dinner run
By Henry STANCU, Staff Reporter
What was supposed to be a quick trip to grab a bite at a Sri Lankan restaurant ended in tragedy when Sureshkumar KANAGARATNAM was gunned down just steps from his destination.
KANAGARATNAM, 28, told his mother Tuesday night he was just going out for five minutes with a friend and would be back shortly.
Within the hour, he lay dead from gunshot wounds to the chest at Yorkwoods Shopping Plaza on Jane Street, south of Finch Ave. West.
"Maybe (there was) an argument. Maybe he said the wrong thing to someone. Police don't know why (he was killed,)" KANAGARATNAM's older brother said as Friends and relatives gathered at the family's North York apartment last night.
"He was a hard-working guy. Fourteen hours a day and he just bought a new house," brother Kuselakumar KANAGARATNAM said, sobbing.
The victim came to Canada from Sri Lanka with family members when he was 14. After learning a trade in school, he worked as a tool and die maker at a York Region manufacturing plant for the past seven years.
"He came to this country for a better, safer life. He was so good and he looked after my 82-year-old father and our mother. My mother can't stop crying," the brother added.
A friend of the victim, an older, married man with children who lives in the same building, has not been heard from since the shooting.
KANAGARATNAM, who celebrated his 28th birthday on September 3, is the youngest of two brothers and a sister.
He will likely be cremated following a Buddhist ceremony at DeMarco Funeral Home on Keele St. in North York Saturday.

Gunfire claims 2 more
By Henry STANCU and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters
Three men were shot dead in two separate ambushes within blocks of each other in Rexdale this weekend, leaving police trying to find a connection between the slayings.
Last night, two gunmen opened fire around 6: 30 on the occupants of a car in the heavily travelled intersection at Martin Grove Rd. and Finch Ave. W. The beige Acura, which had been travelling north on Martin Grove, then turned right on Finch and veered off the road before mounting the curb and stopping against a mesh fence surrounding Elmbank Junior Middle Academy.
Fahim TALAKSHI, 25, who was shot in the head, lay beside the car and was pronounced dead by paramedics.
Aleem REHMTULLA, 26, also shot in the head, was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he died. Both were from Oakville.
Two suspects were seen running from the area. One is described as black, in his early 20s and is 6 feet tall, about 150-160 pounds. He was wearing a black, waist-length coat, with tear-away pants and dark shoes.
The second suspect is black, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a dark coat with a dark hood over a white hat.
"There's large quantities of blood located in the intersection. At this time we can't ascertain if the blood is from the victims in the vehicle or a third party who left the vehicle or if there was an exchange of gunfire between the people in the vehicle, or the people who were outside the vehicle," said Insp. Mike EARL.
It's unclear whether the Acura had come to a stop when the shooting erupted. Stray bullets hit a number of vehicles in the immediate area, said police, who were questioning pedestrians and motorists as potential witnesses.
The double homicide happened just 26 hours after Brandon ARCHIBALD- STERLING's life came to a sudden, violent end as he walked in a nearby laneway and a dark blue, late model minivan with dark-tinted windows pulled up behind him.
As police officers from 22, 23 and 31 divisions and traffic services closed off the main roads in all directions of the scene, a tracking dog was brought in to follow the trail of the fleeing suspects. Officers there hunted the grounds with flashlights.
"Man. Another shooting. This is getting to be too much," said a man who identified himself as George. "I live where the other guy (ARCHIBALD- STERLING) was killed yesterday. This place is like a shooting gallery."
"We've lived here 10 years and it's just gotten worse lately.
"A lot of people are afraid," said a resident who came to the intersection to see what happened and did not want to be identified.
Northwest Toronto was rocked by shootings this summer though the streets quieted down after police rounded up suspected gang members September 15 as part of Project Flicker, targeting the Ardwick Blood Crew.
Many of those arrested on drugs and weapons charges grew up in a public housing project on Ardwick Blvd., near Finch and Islington Ave., also a short distance from these latest killings.
More than a month had passed since the city's last fatal shooting, a triple homicide that also took place in Etobicoke.
On September 16, a gun battle erupted inside a parked car near an apartment on Tandridge Cres., near Albion Rd. and the Humber Valley Golf Club.
Two men died at the scene, a third succumbed to his injuries a few days later in hospital.
This weekend's gunfire brings the year's homicide total to 64, while the number of firearms homicides climbs to 44, a record number.
This year's escalating gun violence has already prompted police to redeploy officers to trouble spots and launch other initiatives aimed at halting the bloodshed.
Ottawa is also planning to beef up its response to gun crime, the Star reported this weekend.
Due to be unveiled by the end of November, the multi-faceted approach includes introducing tougher rules on sentencing and parole in gun crimes, including longer minimum sentence provisions and lifetime firearm-ownership bans on repeat offenders.
Minimum sentences of one year in some firearms offences could be doubled to two years, and 10-year ownership bans would be extended to lifetime prohibitions, a source told the Star. Another option being considered is for Canada to sue U.S. gun manufacturers for the spread of illegal weapons into this country.
It's estimated that almost half the gun crimes committed in Canada involved illegal U.S. weapons.
While the identity of the shooter and origin of the gun are unknown, a firearm was used to snuff out the life of ARCHIBALD- STERLING around 4: 25 p.m. Saturday.
Police say he was approached from behind by a slow-moving van when an occupant opened fire, striking the 22-year-old who collapsed beside a housing complex at 9 Kendleton Dr., near Finch Ave. W. and Albion Rd. Emergency services workers rushed to the scene and transported him to hospital where he later died.
While there are witnesses: helping police, "they're limited in what they saw and what they're able to tell us," homicide Det. Scott SPRATT said yesterday.
But investigators are hopeful surveillance cameras in the area might provide some clues, particularly because there was still plenty of daylight at the time of the drive-by shooting.
The footage is being enhanced and SPRATT hoped to release some images today.
ARCHIBALD- STERLING died from a gunshot wound to the chest, a post mortem found.
SPRATT said he doesn't know a lot about the victim because his mother is "grieving so hard that we haven't been able to get a lot of background about him."
ARCHIBALD- STERLING lived in a neighbourhood not far from the shooting, he said.
SPRATT believes his father lives in Brampton.
The victim was known to police, but not "in a major way," he added.
It is too soon to say whether the shooting relates to gang activity or for police to speculate on a possible motive.
SPRATT confirmed he had been at a Popeyes, a nearby fast food eatery, sometime before he was killed.
Police are looking for a dark blue minivan, possible a Chrysler, Dodge, or Plymouth, approximately two years old, with dark tinted windows.

Neighbourhood feud turns deadly
By Henry STANCU, Staff Reporter
A man was shot to death and two of his brothers were also hit by bullets yesterday in what Friends say was an ongoing feud between neighbourhood groups.
It was one of two separate shootings within 90 minutes in Toronto.
Police and paramedics arrived at the second shooting scene to find three brothers hit by bullets in the city's west end.
Two of the victims were sprawled in the laneway off Turnberry Ave., near Old Weston and Rogers Rds., at about 5: 45 p.m.
"My brother is out there. Laying there. I can't believe this happened," said Paul PEREIRA, 31, after learning his brother Mario, 29, was dead.
The victim died instantly from a gunshot wound to the chest.
His brothers -- Pedro, 22, who was shot in the stomach, and Louis, 17, who was hit in the leg -- were both taken to hospital with serious but non life-threatening injuries.
One of the brothers staggered to a nearby home where a resident called 911.
"I heard about eight shots. One at first, then three and then some more," said PEREIRA, the oldest of five brothers and three sisters whose family lives in a home backing onto the laneway.
Friends gathered outside the home said there was a dispute in the same spot involving two large groups of area residents two evenings ago, but they dispersed when police arrived.
The victim, who lived with his mother, had a 2-year-old child.
About 90 minutes earlier, Carlene BLACKWOOD heard gunfire and people shouting before a wounded man burst into her Driftwood Crt. townhouse, near Jane St. and Finch Ave. W. in North York.
"Save me! Save me! They gonna kill me," cried the victim, who was shot in the back after fleeing a hail of bullets.
BLACKWOOD's 20-year-old daughter slammed the door shut just before a man started pounding on it, swearing and demanding to get at the 40-something victim.
"Let me kill him," BLACKWOOD heard one man shout before he ran around to her unit's backdoor and began pounding on it.
BLACKWOOD, a mother of four, called 911 to get help.
"I started screaming. I feel so nervous now that I want to move away. This happened just when the kids were coming home from school," she said.
Police cordoned off the cul-de-sac around the front the townhouse where as many as a dozen shell casings littered the road.
The victim was listed in serious condition with a bullet lodged near his spine. Police say he is expected to live.

There is probably a kitchen in heaven right now with a tea pot on the stove and some good Cape Breton fiddle music playing and love, laughter and memories being shared between Marg and her predeceased parents Maude (HINKS) and John Henry LEWIS, brothers Jim and Stan LEWIS and sister Mary BAKER. She was also predeceased by two great men who came into her life and brightened it in their own loving ways, husband Raymond SUTTON, husband Kenneth COOPER. Friends may call at the R.D.
