Andrea BRONFMAN, 60, killed by car
Associated Press
New York - Andrea BRONFMAN, wife of former Seagrams chairman Charles BRONFMAN, was killed yesterday in a traffic accident.
BRONFMAN, 60, was hit by a car and died of her injuries, the Andrea and Charles Philanthropies organization said in a news release.
"It's a tragic catastrophe," said Irving ABELLA, a close friend of the BRONFMANs and head of Jewish studies at Toronto's York University. "She and her husband have done so much not only for Jews and Israel, but for Canada. They've funded a whole variety of cultural and academic endeavours."
ABELLA called Andrea BRONFMAN's greatest achievement a travelling exhibit of Canadian Jewish history called a Coat of Many Colours.
"She was the inspiration, the creator and the funder of the exhibit," he said. "It really was the start for Canadian Jewish history in the sense that it talked about the contributions and the life of Jews in Canada, right from the 1750s on."
Jewish communities in Canada and around the world were mourning the death of BRONFMAN, known to Friends and family as Andy. She and her husband have five children and six grandchildren. BRONFMAN served as founder and deputy chair of The Gift of New York, a non-profit initiative which provided admission to New York City's cultural, arts, entertainment and sports venues, without charge, to the bereaved families of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In 2003, she founded The Association for Israel's Decorative Arts, to expose Israeli artists to North American galleries and collectors, as well as to educate North Americans about decorative arts in Israel.
Charles BRONFMAN established the Andrea M. Bronfman Prize for the Arts (The Andy) to honour his wife's lifelong passion for and support of the arts, and to create a showcase for Israeli decorative artists.
Andrea and Charles BRONFMAN were co-founders of Birthright Israel, a program offering 18- to 26-year-olds their first Jewish living and learning experience in Israel. In just six years, almost 100,000 participants have benefited from the program.
"There was an undeniable force that seemed to emanate from Andy and make good things happen for many, many people," said Jeffrey Solomon, president of Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies. "She derived much of that energy from the young people whom she made it her purpose to serve."
A spokesperson at the United Jewish Federation in Toronto says BRONFMAN's funeral will be held in New York, with plans for burial in Israel.
Police said no charges were filed against the driver who hit BRONFMAN.

ABERHART, William, 1943 -- Died This Day
Teacher, preacher and politician born on a farm near Kippen, Ontario
After training as a teacher, and graduating from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, he taught at several schools until he became a principal in 1905. Five years later, he went to Calgary, again as a principal. A devout churchgoer, he became deeply interested in the Baptist faith in Calgary and took up preaching. By 1923, his Bible studies were so popular he had to rent a cinema; two years later, he took his message to the radio. During the Depression, he turned to politics and the "social credit" theories of C.H. Douglas. He helped found the Social Credit Party of Alberta, which won the 1935 election by a landslide. Unable to get control of the banks, which were the domain of Ottawa, he tried to bring in three new bills. Lieutenant-Governor John Bowen refused to give royal assent, and the bills were later declared unconstitutional. In 1938, Bowen took steps to fire the government but never carried out his threat -- ABERHART was too popular. Although he never got control of Alberta's banks, he created the Alberta Treasury Branches. Today, it is a Crown corporation.

BADGER, D. Gordon
Gordon passed away unexpectedly but peacefully while napping in a little stone cottage in beautiful rural Ireland, a land he truly loved, on his septuagenarian elopement and honeymoon vacation with his new bride, Marilyn WEIR. Tragically, Marilyn has had their happiness together cut far too short. Gordon never wasted any time - he knew there might not be a tomorrow and lived each and every day with gusto. Great friend, mentor and presence to so many. Larger than life character with an intellect, enthusiasm and energy that touched a broad spectrum of people in many ways. Missed by a host including the children he loved; Storey, Matthew, Lawrie and Gregg; their mothers Marilyn (McFATRIDGE) and Heather (JACKSON;) grandchildren Hartley and Spencer VIBERT and Will and Sydney BADGER; and in-laws Matthew VIBERT and Kate HUNTER- BADGER. Pre-deceased by his loving daughter Martha, wife of many years Vicky (MacCAUSLAND,) sister Donna Marie ABERLE and parents Donald and Edith BADGER. Born in Cayuga, Ontario May 8, 1936. Chartered Accountant (Clarkson and Gordon) and entrepreneur extraordinaire, 'Badge' had a colorful career that included the founding of Homemakers Digest and most recently real estate development in Florida, with countless adventures in between. He never stopped and was enjoying some of his best successes recently. Gordon had a wonderful ability to embrace life and enjoy it thoroughly. He did so in the comfort of his home in Creemore Ontario where he weighed in generously and meaningfully on community issues; recently in Melbourne, Florida where he was doing business with the enthusiasm of a youngster; in the Domincan Republic where he also made a home and embraced the people there who loved and respected him and to whom he showed the generosity of a true Santa Claus; and the cottage where he perhaps enjoyed life with family and Friends most on Playfair Island, Lake Joseph. He created an environment there that became the foundation for the family. With all of this in his life, and the prospect of sharing it in his sunset years with his new love, he died truly happy. He was a wonderfully unique character, a raconteur who entertained and delighted all. He has left us alone, and we will grieve, but his spirit will remain in our hearts forever. A service will be held for Friends and family at Bloor Street United Church, 300 Bloor St. West, Toronto on Monday, May 8, 2006 (his 70th birthday) at 4: 30 p.m. More importantly, the major celebration of his life that he directed include martinis and good wine will take place at the Badger Hill farm near Creemore on Saturday, June 24 with tee-offs for those who wish to golf on Badger Downs starting at 2 p.m. Friends should please mark you calendars for then and let a family member know if you need directions or help with accommodation. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mustard Seed Communities, Inc, (www.mustardseed.com) in favour of their Dominican Republic facility in the name of Gordon and Martha Badger (c/o Gregg BADGER, 501 Russell Hill Rd., Toronto M5P 2T1 if desired).

Scarborough man, 22, was target, police say
By Armina LIGAYA and Timothy APPLEBY, Page A13
Reynaldo SANTOS was letting the dog out early on Sunday morning when he made a grisly discovery in his backyard.
Near the back door of the family's Scarborough home lay the lifeless body of his 22-year-old son, Patrick.
An official police statement said the young Mr. SANTOS showed "obvious signs of trauma." A police source who asked not to be identified said the young man's hands had been bound.
"We don't believe it was a random attack. We believe he was targeted," said Detective-Sergeant Dean BURKS. A postmortem examination has been conducted, but the cause of death has not been released.
While police believe Mr. SANTOS was targeted, there's little doubt that Piratheep THARMAKULASINGAM, 25 -- slain just hours after Mr. SANTOS's body was found and one of three people killed on Sunday -- was singled out for death.
Mr. THARMAKULASINGAM was walking along Huntsmill Boulevard, near Warden and McNicoll Avenues, when a car jumped the curb and hit him, police said. The driver then jumped out, attacked him repeatedly with a machete, hopped into the vehicle and fled.
Police responding to a 911 call at 10 a.m. found him injured on the grass. He was taken to hospital and pronounced dead. A postmortem examination showed Mr. THARMAKULASINGAM died from "sharp force injuries to the neck," police said.
A warrant has been issued for Sujan ABEYEWARDENE, 19, of Richmond Hill, on a charge of first-degree murder.
Also yesterday, police identified Christopher James WHITE/WHYTE, 35, as the third person killed Sunday. Mr. WHITE/WHYTE, of no fixed address, was on King Street West in Parkdale when he was shot to death.
On Bridlington Street, where the SANTOS family lives, neighbours say they were shocked to find their suburb swarming with police early Sunday.
The SANTOS home, a white, sixties-era backsplit with a garden and a swing set in the back, has been sealed with police tape.
"You think you live in a secluded pocket… you never think something like this is going to happen here," said Wayne BRIDGER, a retired fireman who lives across the street.
The SANTOS family are "very nice, very friendly," but keep to themselves, he said.

Man chased by car, hacked in 'set up' machete slaying
First-degree murder warrant issued
One of 3 homicides in 4½-hour period
By John DUNCANSON and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporter
Piratheep THARMAKULASINGAM was walking home, unaware someone lay in wait.
He tried to run, but a man in a car chased the frightened unemployed factory worker down a quiet Scarborough street around 10 a.m. Sunday.
The driver then got out of the car and repeatedly hacked at THARMAKULASINGAM's head and body with a machete before fleeing. THARMAKULASINGAM, who was going through a marital separation, was found on the lawn of a home on Huntsmill Blvd. The 25-year-old died in hospital of severe neck wounds, one of three homicides in a 4½-hour period early Sunday. He is to be cremated Thursday.
According to the dead man's brother, Suren, his older sibling was attacked after he had left his "lover's" home after arguing with her. Suren is convinced "Deep" was set up.
Police issued a first-degree murder warrant yesterday for Sujan ABEYEWARDENE, 19, of Richmond Hill. Suren, 23, said his "much-loved" brother didn't know the suspect, but the wanted man is the cousin of his brother's lover, a former girlfriend.
"What's the motive? He didn't even know him (the suspect)," Suren said as he gathered with Friends and family at their Chester Le Boulevard home. "He hid his emotions. He only lived for us, everyone loved him."
THARMAKULASINGAM's slaying, the 51st of the year, was the third homicide to take place over a 4½ hour period Sunday morning. The outburst of violence broke a relative calm in which there had been only three other homicides in the past month.
There are nine fewer homicides compared to this time last year and firearms slaying are down significantly.
The first homicide Sunday was a shooting some time before 5: 30 a.m. at a three-storey Parkdale apartment known to be used by drug addicts.
There they found Christopher James WHITE/WHYTE, 35, shot in the head, but still alive. He was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital where he died.
Detective Gary GRINTON said WHITE/WHYTE, who had an extensive criminal record, was last seen at Dufferin and King Sts. around 6 p.m. Saturday night. He was found shot on the second floor of the building, which police know as a site where drug addicts hang out.
Two hours after WHITE/WHYTE was shot, police in Scarborough received a 911 call from a home on Bridlington Street, just off Bellamy Rd. near Ellesmere Rd.
A father found his son, Patrick SANTOS, dead in the family's backyard just steps from the back door about 7: 30 a.m.

Slain man had been shot in head before
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Police found the drug addict standing on King St. W. suffering from gunshot wounds to the head, arm and shoulder.
Two years later that man -- Christopher James WHITE/WHYTE -- was dying on the floor of a flophouse in that same neighbourhood with another gunshot wound to the head. That was Sunday morning. This time he did not survive.
WHITE/WHYTE, 35, was well known in Parkdale, but homicide detectives have very little information about where he was in the 12 hours before the shooting, or who may be responsible for his murder.
"We have no witnesses. No motive," said Det. Dan SHEPPARD of the 5: 20 a.m. shooting.
Two years ago, when police found WHITE/WHYTE standing in the same neighbourhood with gunshot wounds, he likely knew who shot him but refused to help with the investigation, SHEPPARD said.
WHITE/WHYTE's slaying is one of three unrelated homicides in a 4½-hour period Sunday morning.
Two hours later on Bridlington Street, near Bellamy and Ellesmere Rds., a man found his 22-year-old son, Patrick SANTOS, dead in the backyard of the family home. Police remain tight-lipped about the investigation, the man's cause of death and the motive behind the killing.
Around 10 a.m. a third man was killed, struck by a car and then repeatedly stabbed with a machete by the driver. Piratheep THARMAKULASINGAM, 25, collapsed in front of a home on Huntsmill Blvd., near Steeles Ave. E. and Warden Ave.
A first-degree murder warrant has been issued for Sujan ABEYEWARDENE, 19, of Richmond Hill. Homicide detectives plan to release a photograph of the wanted man today after showing it to potential witnesses: yesterday.
"We have checked his known addresses… his home address, his place of employment," said homicide Det. Bill VIEIRA. "He has not been found."
